IT'S HISTORY


ANGELA DAUGHTRY/NEWS-LEADER
A backhoe demolishes the city-owned log cabin in Central Park on South 11th Street Tuesday morn-
ing. City officials determined the historic building, which was-used by the American Legion Post 54
since about 1940, could not be saved due to extensive termite damage. The building was spared until
its history was documented. The Legion has a new home on Third Street.




'Every day is a battle' but


addiction are treatable


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
On the surface, William Cope
Moyers has led a charmed life. His
father, Bill Moyers, served as press
secretary to President Lyndon
Johnson before moving on to a
Peabody Award-winning career in
journalism, working at Newsday, PBS;,
NBC and CBS. The younger Moyers
also became journalist, spending 15
years working at CNN and newspa-
pers around the country.
But there was a secret beneath
the perfect facade: for decades,
William C. Moyers struggled with
alcohol and drug addiction.
Moyers, now the executive direc-
tor of the Minnesota-based substance
abuse facility Hazelden's Center for
Public Advocacy, will be sharing his
story April 7 at a fundraising dinner
for Sutton Place Behavioral Health.


Moyers will give
the keynote ad-
dress at the dinner
S at Amelia Island
S Plantation's Cum-
berland Ballroom.
"I'm going to be
there, to raise
awareness around
Moyers addiction, treatment
and recovery issues
in Florida, and real-
ly to focus on the reality that Florida,
like everywhere else, is not immune
to the issues of addictione- but lso to
focus on the reality that treat-
ment works and recovery is possi-
ble," Moyers said Monday.
"Alcoholism and drug dependence
are everybody's problems, and to
address the issue we need to make
everybody aware of the solution. So
I'm really there to deli rer a message
of hope and healing to the communi-


Ly .
Moyers said he was living proof
that addiction crosses all socioeco-
nomic lines.
"My father's had a long career in
journalism and in government In my
story is interwoven this decades-long
struggle with alcoholism and drug
addiction, even though people didn't
really see it," he said. "I didn't look like
a stereotypical alcoholic, but I was. I
was a journalist. I worked for CNN. I
.came from a life where I wanted for
nothing and yet this disease brought
me down.
"I hit bottom in 1989 in New York,"
he added. "Over the next five years,
between 1989 and 1994, Iwas in and
out of treatment several times until I
finally got sober in 1994, while work-
ing for CNN in Atlanta."
Moyers made something positive

City fills jobs




with temps -



no advertising


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Six temporary city contract employ-
ees were hired to permanent jobs that
were not advertised or posted as city
vacancies routinely are.
According to a menio written by
City Clerk Mary Mercer and distrib-
uted to city commissioners, the, city
may have violated a code that requires
such job openings to be posted. She
also questioned why there was no writ-
ten justification to the city commis-
sion as requested.by the mayor last fall
when it was agreed only "essential"
jobs would be filled.
But Mayor Susan Steger and' two
commissioners suggested the audit
was overstated in its suggestion that
City Manager Michael Czymbor or
his department heads had erred.
"No significant findings were
uncovered in the clerk's audit with the,
exception of the discrepancy in the
personnel handbook that is approved
by the commission and the code
regarding job postings for part-time
positions (again approved by the com-
mission)," Steger wrote in an e-mail
Monday. "I am confident the commis-


Steger

sion will take action to correct this
discrepancy.
"As far as the written justification
issue, I am not aware of any require-
ment that the city place in personnel
' files written justification for positions.
"My intention to request written
justification was for new hires of
employees for long-term, permanent
positions. These hires are short-term
hires and their employment will end
when the capital improvement building
project ends."
According to city documents, four
of the former contract employees were
hired as laborers for utilities/waste-
water projects, and one-was hired as an

City voters will decide 11 city char-

OBITUARIES


Dora Ball Barnard
A piece of Old Fernandina
history was lost with the passing
of Dora Ball Barnard, 87, who
died peacefully on Sunday,
March 21st at Baptist Hospital.
Born February 18th, 1923, in
Wayne County, West Virginia,
Mrs. Barnard was one of six
children of John Wesley Ball
and Mary Rowe, family names
with deep roots in that state.
The Balls were farmers of mod-
est means, but their home was
rich in home-raised food and
love.
Mrs. Barnard came to
Fernandina Beach in the 1940s
and met her second husband,
the late Porter Barnard, at the
Palace Saloon on Centre Street.
Together the couple ran the
popular Porters Fish Camp on
the Old Town waterfront, where
an entire county came not only
for live bait, but also for a beer
and a game of dominos, fish
fries and oyster roasts. Mrs.
Barnard was a-capable busi-
nesswoman as well as a hard
worker. After her husband's
death in 1973, she continued to
run the fish camp from a leased


dock on the Amelia River. Even
in her 80s, she never lost her
love of fishing and could tie a
trout rig without reading glass-
es. She was gifted with a cro-
chet hook, producing and sell-
ing her creations. She also read
voraciously, was generous to
friends and strangers alike, and
told a ripping story.
Mrs. Barnard is survived by
a sister, Ruth Ball Reid; numer-
ous nieces and nephews, includ-
ing Denver and Raymond Gue
and Brenda Reid Conrad; and
stepsons Porter and Dennis
Barnard.
She was laid to rest beside
her late husband in Bosque
Bello Cemetery on March 24th,
with Ron West, Charles Fulford,
Ron Machado and Michael
Harrison among the pallbear-
ers.
Remembrances of Mrs.
Barnard and Porters Fish Camp
will be deeply appreciated by
the family and can be made on
the Oxley-Heard Funeral Home
website, www.oxleyheard.com,
or with an e-mail to
RememberingDoraBarnard@g

HIRING
Continued from 1A
electrician/HVAC technician.
A sixth employee was hired as
a "seasonal temp," but was
transferred to the water
department as a regular part-
time employee.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said she could not locate a writ-
ten justification for the hirings,
and thus she could not deter-
mine if they were "essential
hiring."
Bach said there were incon-
sistencies in city code and poli-
cies regarding such hiring.
She said she would work to
rewrite the code to make it
more clear.
Czymbor said the lack of
written justification was "inad-
vertent," and he defended the
hirings because they saved the
city money.
There was "no evidence of
wrongdoing" and there is
ambiguity in the code, Vice
Mayor Eric Childers said.
Childers also said he believed
the hires were excluded from
the freeze because they were
part-time and the positions
were already included in the
capital spending budget
Commissioner Tim
Poynter suggested in an e-mail
to Czymbor the matter was
overblown. "Too many times
people look for 'scandals' when
a simple explanation is avail-
able for the asking," he wrote,
suggesting the matter could
have been handled internally
by department heads.
Mercer's memo, which was
sent Friday to commissioners,
Czymbor and Bach, stated
"there were several jobs filled
that were not posted as they
have been in the past."
According to Mercer, a city
employee brought the issue to
her attention.


Mercer wrote that five
employees originally hired as
utility department contract
workers through Randstad on
a temporary basis were hired
in November as regular part-
time city employees. The posi-
tions were not advertised or
posted. Mercer also wrote that,
as far as she knows, a hiring
freeze is still in effect for city
employees for all "non-essen-
tial" positions.
Steger asked during a com-
mission meeting in October
that Czymbor provide com-
missioners with written docu-
mentation as to why any new
employee position is critical
for the city.
Czymbor said in an .e-mail
that "the mayor did request at
a meeting last fall that a written
justification be available for the
filling of critical and essential
personnel." He said that in this
case the payroll request had
been recently revised and was-
"inadvertently not completed,"
but that he approved it any-
way.
"All other positions which
have been filled since then,
to my knowledge, have com-
pleted and processed this
'Request To Fill Position
Vacancy' form," Czymbor
wrote.
Czymbor said Utilities
Director John Mandrick
approached him last summer
about hiring a group of
Randstad employees as part-
time workers to work on the
wastewater treatment plant
project Czymbor also said that
part-time positions were
exempt from the city's employ-
ee classification plan that is
outlined in city code.
"The city has for many
years budgeted for and utilized
outside employment agencies,
both Randstad and Satilla, to
provide contractual labor for


maintenance and utility labor-
er positions on many of the
city's utility capital improve-
ment projects," Czymbor
wrote. "The city generally paid
approximately 50 percent
more per contractual employ-
ee per hourly rate than if they
were a city employee in a com-
parable position."
"The conversion of these
positions from contractual to
part-time would save the city a
minimum of $5 per hour and
would provide Mr. Mandrick
much more flexibility in sched-
uling and utilizing these per-
sonnel," Czymbor wrote.
"Prior to our implementing the
transfer of these employees
we checked with our human
resources director and labor
counsel to ensure the appro-
priateness of the proposed
action: They concurred."
"In this case (the contract-
ed employees are) providing
valuable ongoing services ...
at a fraction of the cost that we
were paying previously," he
wrote, "which has again low-
ered the overall cost of this
project which is of great ben-
efit to the residents and rate
payers."
In her memo Mercer point-
ed out there were several
- inconsistencies in city code
and city policy regarding the
hiring of employees, which
made it difficult to determine
if any personnel policies or
codes were violated. Bach also
said there appeared to be
inconsistencies in the employ-
ee code and policy.
Bach' said she would help
rewrite the code after Human
Resources Director Robin
Marley and Employment
Attorney Meg Zabijaka evalu-
ated the documents. Marley
was on vacation and could not
be reached for comment

MOYERS
Continued from 1A
out of his experience he uses
it to educate people about the
nature of addiction, and the fact
that treatment can work.
"I use my own story to high-
light the power of addiction -
and the promise and possibility
of recovery. That's what Sutton
Place is doing it's treating
addiction and transforming lives
right there in the community,
and that's huge.
"In Florida, the public and
the policy makers are keenly
aware of the problem.
Alcoholism manifests itself on
the highway, in the workplace,
in the home," he said. "... What
the public and the policy mak-
ers and even the news media
don't know, is that there's a
solution. It is possible to recov-
er from alcoholism, to recover
from drug addiction. I'm an
example of it. Some of the peo-
ple in the audience that night
will probably be examples of it."
But recovery takes effort,
Moyers said effort not
just from the addicted person,
but also from his friends and
family.
"The most important step in
recovery is number one: Asking
for help. Addiction has a
tremendous stigma around it,"
he said. "It prevents people from
asking for help. There's a lot of
shame around it. The most
important step for people who
are addicted is to realize that
it's OK to ask for help.
"The second most important
thing is for the family and the
community to rally around peo-
ple who are addicted and
offer support," he added.
"Addiction is not an excuse,
but it is an explanation. ... It
helps to explain why rational
,people do irrational things,
why good people do bad things,
why loving people do hurtful
things."
But Moyers was careful to

caution that supporting an.
addicted person and enabling
him are two different things.
"Supporting addicted people
means holding them account-
able," he said. "Just like a dia-
betic has to take his,insulin, an
addicted person has to do what
he's told in order to recover.
You can send.an addicted per-
son to Sutton Place, but if that
person's not willing to be part of
the solution, he's not going to
recover."
Moyers said he wanted to
help "shift the terms of the
debate" on addiction, to con-
vince people to stop focusing
on the problem and start
focusing on the solution and
in the process, perhaps lessen
the stigma that keeps so many
from asking for help. That
stigma and the attendant shame
tortured Moyers for years, he
said.
"The worst part about addic-
tion is the shame the fact that
,for so many years I couldn't stop
on my own, even though I want-
ed to," he said. "I couldn't stop
even though I was hurting so
many people who loved me. I
. couldn't stop even though I
knew it was killing me."
But, he added, surviving the
hell of addiction allowed him to
appreciate the good things in
his life.
"Lie -today is a gift. Every
day since I've been sober, since
1994, has really been a gift," he
said. "I'm alive despite a disease


that wanted to kill me. I'm an
engaged father of three
teenagers. I've got a great job.
There's not a day that goes by
that I don't tap into gratitude
for the life that's been given
me."
: Life isn't perfect, he admitted
- but his experience overcom-
ing addiction has strengthened
his resolve to roll with the
punches.
"Every day is a battle," he
said. "I've.had cancer. I went
through a very tragic divorce
last year. I've got custody of my
three teenagers. I've been
through a lot of heartache and
a lot of success in the last 16
years, but I continue to focus
on what's most important to me.
I think that's the key to remain
grateful day after day, no matter
what."

The government has taken

deeper
at a handsome profit. So
instead of facing a once-pro-
jected loss of $70 billion, the
government stands to benefit
nicely from its hasty infu-
sions.
As of a few months ago,
more than $160 billion of
relief funds had been paid
back by banks of $245 bil-
lion in total infusions to some
700 institutions. And many
contend the U.S. government
squanders tax dollars. Maybe
we'll have to rethink this
premise.
Even with these recent
profits, the U.S. budget deficit
continues its Spandex-like
expansion. Any reconciling of
the budget appears to be
pinned on raising taxes, even
though lower taxes are more
conducive to increased spend-
ing by individuals and busi-
nesses.
And increased spending
drives economic activity and
consequently, a recovery. It
appears to be a simple formu-
la, but it hardly comes across
that way. Meanwhile, the hole
in the budget continues to
widen.

Consumers skeptical of future


University of Florida


GAINESVILLE Florida's
consumer confidence fell in
March as the state's bleak
unemployment rate cast doubts
about the long-term health of
the economy and people's abil-
ity to make major household
purchases, according to a new
University of Florida survey.
"The decline in optimism is
almost certainly related to per-
sistent elevated levels of unem-
ployment in Florida and the per-
ception jobs are neither secure
nor widely available," said Chris
McCarty, survey director of
UF's Bureau of Economic and
Business Research.
New unemployment figures
released this week show
Florida's jobless rate for
February was 12.2 percent, the
highest since the state began
keeping count in 1970. It
exceeded the previous record of
11.9 percent set in both May
1975 and January of this year.
Most economists expect
Florida's unemployment to con-
tinue to rise Dver the next sev-
eral months, in contrast to
national unemployment, which
has at least temporarily declin-
ed, McCarty said. The national
unemployment rate was 9.7 per-
cent in February, 2.5 percent
lower than in Florida.
Two of the five components
making up the index rose, one
stayed the same and two
declined. The biggest change
was in the component measur-
ing perceptions of whether it-is
a good time to buy big-ticket
consumer items, which fell.
Perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a
year ago rose, while expecta-
tions of personal finances a year
from now remained unchanged.
Perceptions of U.S. economic
conditions over the next year
rose, while perceptions of U.S.
economic conditions over the
next five years fell four points to
72.

A message to voters...
"The local chapter of the AARP will be hosting a Candidate Political
Forum tonight at the City Hall chambers beginning at 7 p.m. and I am
unable to attend because of a prior commitment that I feel I must honor. I
participate in the choir at St. Peter's Episcopal Church. This is our last full
practice before the various services of holy week, including the Easter serv-
ices. I spoke with the contact person for this forum, and evidently there are
no options for candidates if they have a conflict. I regret having to choose
not to attend the forum, hut I must honor my prior commitment."

decline in overall consumer con-
fidence in March, the source of
the decline was unusual,"
McCarty said. "Personal
finances seem to be stabilizing,
although at historically low lev-
els. Short-term expectations of
the U.S. economy are a bit more
optimistic. But Floridians are
skeptical of the long-run health
of the economy and are partic-
ularly negative about investing
in major purchases, such as a
car or large appliance that are
often purchased through a loan
or on credit."
A disturbing trend is the ele-
vated levels of the long-term
unemployed, those who are
looking for work but have not
found a job for 27 weeks or
more, McCarty said. These
Floridians are dependent on
extended unemployment ben-
efits and continue to add to the,
rolls of Medicaid recipients, he
said.
Although state level esti-
mates for- the long-term unem-
ployed are not available on a
monthly basis, an annual com-
parison to the United States as
a whole for 2009 shows Florida
at 37.2 percent and the U.S. at
31.5 percent, he said.
The latest figure for the U.S.,
available in February, shows


that 40.9 percent of jobless
adults have been out of work
for 27 weeks or more, McCarty
said. "Based on last year's sta-
tistics, I'm assuming Florida's
long-term unemployment rate
for early this year would be pro-


portionately higher than the
national rate, close to 47 per-
cent," he said.
These levels, both statewide
and nationally, are much higher
than has ever been measured,
-he said.

OPINION


Local voices are heard at State Capitol


The fourth week of
legislative session
was marked with
large numbers of
Floridians visiting our State
Capitol. On some days the
capitol complex is so crowded
that you will have trouble
squeezing your way through
the hallways: It is really hectic
with so many groups and dif-
ferent name badges; it is hard
to find anyone. listening to
.citizens and allowing them to
be heard is an essential part
of the process and I can tell
you lawmakers do pay atten-
tion.
I was pleased to welcome -
local residents Charlie Morris
and Scottie Murray as our
guests to the Capitol to meet
with people about the aquatic '
preserve. We arranged meet-
ings for him so he could be
heard on his issue. We also
welcomed County
Commissioners Danny
Leeper, Stacy Johnson and
Junior Boatright along with
County Attorney David
Hallman as they worked to


ensure Nassau County's
needs were being met.
Wednesday was a day for
reminiscing as it was the bian-
nual reunion for former house
members. It was a special
treat for me to welcome for-
mer State Reps. Marilyn
Evans-Jones and George
Crady back to the Florida
House.
Our elected leaders past .
and present make a special
sacrifice to serve and we
should acknowledge and
express our appreciation for
their service. Those that went
before us often pave the way
for the next generation of
leaders and I am thankful for
their service.
It is amazing to hear how
things have changed since
those days. In the day before
term limits lawmakers held
onto powerful chairmanship
roles for many years and
played a pivotal role in state
policy. Most people would
either make a phone call to
the Capitol or write a letter,
Lobbyists were influential


because they
knew what
was happen-
ing and
could add
value.
Now, with
term limits,
power is con-
centrated in
STATE the hands of
REP. the leader-
... ship.
Committee
JanetAdkins agendas are
often
approved by the Speaker's
Office and committee staffs
play a more pivotal role than
before and yield greater influ-
ence.
The world of technology
and transparency has
changed the role of lobbyists;
no longer are they the only
ones with inside knowledge.
' Now more information, even
committee meetings, can be
viewed online so taxpayers
and citizens can be more
effective in making their
views heard. Most lawmakers

receive muclh more communi-
cation with e-mail and text
messaging, yet letters and
phone calls continue to be uti-
lized.
With many of the legisla-
tive bills not being heard in
committee, much of the legis-
lation filed this year is now
"dead" and will not be consid-
ered. The focus of lawmakers
and their aides is now on the
few bills they have moving
and the use of amendments to
drive their issues forward.
Much time is now being spent
on working through the bills
that will be moving and work-
ing on amendments that
could include measures being
championed by lawmakers.
I am working with Sen.
Ronda Storms on a bill that
would codify the mental
health courts iii Florida. My.
bill, HB 1327,-has'not been
heard so it is considered
"dead" in committee; howev-
er, the Senate Companion SB
2612 was heard this week in
the Senate and will be linked
with HB 1189 by Rep. Synder
to form a Behavioral Health
legislative package that we
hope will include my efforts
to create standards for our
mental health courts in 10
Florida counties, including
Nassau County.
Thursday was a successful
day for our local bill dealing
with dock issues in the Lofton
Creek area. We were able to
gain a unanimous vote of the
Agriculture and Natural
Resource Policy Committee


.9


and are now positioned to get
the bill on its final council
agenda before being present-
ed on the House floor. This
local bill reminds me of what
our representative form of
government is all about lis-
tening to citizens and then
finding common sense solu-
tions to the problems that
they face. We have worked
hard to create a bill that is
supported by the Department
of Environmental Protection
and the legislative leadership.
We were also thankful to
get the news that our elec-
tronic threats bill is sched-
uled to be heard in the Senate
on April 8. This will allow us
to continue to move forward
on the House side. This bill
was brought to me by our
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves to
address the growing use of
electronic means to make
threats against others. Under
present law there is no ability
for law enforcement to act.
This change will provide
law enforcement the tools
needed to protect our citizens
and stop these types of
threats.
We continue to watch the
progress of the Florida DOT
with the emergency repairs
now contracted and sched-
uled for AiA. The resurfacing
of AiA is in the DOT work
plan for 2010-11. What we
were told this week is that
because of the budget crisis,
the funding for these road
projects may be suspended
because the trust funds were


swept to divert money to edu-
cation. We are working hard
.to ensure that the resurfacing
of AlA remains a high priority
and we plan to fight hard to
keep this critical project fund-
ed for the 2010-11 work plan.
One of our priorities this
year was to address the
impact of state agency rule
making on the small business
climate in Florida. I was
cosponsor on several bills that
will require state agencies to
have an independent assess-
ment of the financial impact of
proposed rules on small busi-
ness owners. I will be work-
ing hard as a cosponsor of
these measures to ensure we
create a climate for small
business owners that will
encourage them to invest and
expand here in Florida
I have received an increas-
ing number of e-mails around
,the legislative proposal'by
Sen. John Thrasher to make
changes to how teachers are
paid. This measure was
passed by the Florida Senate
and will now be taken up in
the Florida House. I plan to
.study the issues around the
proposed changes to teacher
pay and will listen carefully to
both sides of this important
debate. As a mother of two
schoolchildren who attend
our local public schools and
with prior experience on the
local school board, I know
education is the one gift you
can give a child that no one
can ever take away..

COMMUNITY THANKS

Concous dElegance
The success of this year's Amelia Island
Concours d'Elegance is an excellent sign that
things are turning around economically, and
our foundation wants to thank all of Nassau
County for their great support of this year's
show. With Richard Petty as our honoree, the
crowd was the biggest ever and they were
treated to another great selection of automo-
tive classics.
Special thanks to the city of Fernandina
Beach, Fernandina Beach Police Department,
Nassau County Board of Commissioners, the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office, the staff of
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia-Island, the down-
town Fernandina merchants, the Amelia Island
Industrial Park and the citizens of the entire
area for their support of our event.
Our special thanks goes to the downtown
restaurants of Espafia, Gennarros, Caf6 Karibo,
Happy Tomato Cafe, 29 South Eats, Fantastic
Fudge, The Crab Trap, The Marina Restaurant,
Barbara Jean's, Pablo's, Merge, George
SheffieldAJil:Qhilders and Sheffields aLtht-
Palace for their donation of fod-ndh ser vices
for the FedEx Marque Car Tour. The food
was again excellent and we have continued a
great tradition for the concours and down-
town Fernandina with "A Taste of Amelia."
This year's show was our 15th, but we are
now looking forward to another 15 great years.
As in past years, the Amelia Island Concours
d'Elegance Foundation, Inc. challenges itself
to put on the best possible concours and the
help and assistance we receive in Nassau
County is the key. Our primary, beneficiary,
Community Hospice of NortheAst Florida, will
again receive a significant donation along with
several other charities serving the greater
North Florida area.
This great event happens with the citizens
permission, and we will continue to make this'
relationship as beneficial as possible for all
involved. Thanks to the work of many, the
Amelia Island Cqncours d'Elegance is now
one of the world's premiere concours and a pri-
mary destination for automotive enthusiasts
worldwide.'
Thank you again for allowing us to have this
event in your area and we look forward to
2011.
Christopher Holt
Director of Operations

Hound Dog
Nassau Humane Society hosted its first
annual Hound Dog Sock Hop on March 19,
and it was a rousing success. A really big
"thanks" to Randy "Elvis" Walker, Frank Basile,
who organized the Vic and the Screaming
Deacons band, Felix and Chandra Solis (pro-
fessional ballroom dancers)and a pair of 12-
year-old dancers, Amanda and Miguel, all
whom provided the live entertainment. The
Fernandina Beach Woman's Club was filled to
the brim with fans of the '50s era music who
sang along with "Elvis" and the band and had
the biggest smiles on their faces. There was-
n't a toe in the house that wasn't tapping!
I also would like to thank all those volun-
teers who helped to make this event so suc-
cessful. Some popped corn, served drinks,
judged contests, s61d tickets, helped set up
and decorate the building, cleaned up after-
ward and helped everyone there have a grand
time. We could not have been as successful
without all your help and friendliness.
We raised an impressive $3,000 at this
event. An amazing amount for our first attempt
at doing a dance. The dogs and cats at the,
shelter are now doing their own version of
the "be-bop" as they celebrate these addition-
al funds that will be used to feed and med-
icate them until their forever adoptive families
are found.
Again, my sincere' thanks for helping to
make this event so successful either by vol-
unteering your time and talents or by attend-
ing the event.

! VIEWPOINT/MIKE BOYLE/NASSAU COUNTY COMMISSION


The facts al


send readers a mixed message. On
the front page was a news article
which said, based on the recent inde-
pendent audit of the county's finances, Nassau
County was in good shape: "(The auditors)
have rendered an unqualified opinion of the
county's financial statements, which is a clean
opinion. That's the highest level (the auditors)
can render." But in the lead editorial, less
encouraging comments were made such
as, "Nassau County government for most of the
past decade (has) presided over the
largest increase in county spending in our
history," "We've lived beyond our means"'
and ends with the comment that if commission-
ers don't follow the paper's advice, "they will
pay."
The editor's simple answer to the complex
budget issues is: "Cut government. Do not
raise taxes." Let me assure the editor and the
readers, none of us want to raise taxes. He then
goes on to echo the sentiment of many in our
community who say "private industry" doesn't
hesitate to eliminate employees, or even close
entire plants or departments in order to cut
costs. In fact, some private companies (like the
News-Leader) simply choose to increase the
price of their product by 50 percent when rev-
enues fall (fortunately, we can't do that). But
such a comparison between the private and
public sectors is grossly misleading in several
ways.
For example, if a private company decides
to cut costs by eliminating the department that
makes widgets, those consumers who still have
to buy widgets can get them from another com-
pany who still makes them. But if the county
decides to eliminate any of its departments
(i.e., Road & Bridge, Patks & Recreation, Fire
Rescue, Building Maintenance, Libraries, etc.),
who do you call to get the missing services
replaced? Remember, too, that there are no
laws requiring a company to make widgets, but
there are statutes requiring certain levels of
service by government entities.
Some citizens are convinced that Nassau
County has too many employees, but most are
surprised to learn what the true figures really
are. For a county with over 600 square miles,
and over 70,000 citizens, the BOCC has rough-
ly 320 employees to provide essential services.
This includes 103 in Fire Rescue (unionized),
100-plus in Road & Bridge, Building


I


bout county

, Maintenance, Solid Waste,
etc. (all unionized), and
100-plus in other staff func-
lotions (Human Resources,
County Attorney,
Engineering, Growth
Management, Library,
etc.). With a hiring freeze
that was implemented
three years ago, the BOCC
Boyle has actually seen the num-
ber of its employees
decrease (not increase) by
6 percent. Some suggest we should simply
"reduce" the number of employees, not elimi-
nate the entire department, or perhaps we
could reduce/eliminate only "non-essential
departments" (a term that does not fit Nassau
County).
If we reduce the Road & Bridge
Department, roads won't be graded when it
rains, swales won't be cut when the growing
season hits, potholes won't be filled and
repaving will cease. If we cut the Building
Maintenance Department, routine maintenance
won't be performed on expensive buildings and
equipment, and huge repair bills will have to be
addressed down the line when the economy
recovers (which it will). What about Fire
Rescue (a favorite target for cost analysis)? We
currently have 32 personnel assigned to 7 sta-
tions across the entire, county on any given day.
This means two (2) personnel for each fire
truck or rescue.unit that responds to your
emergency. Does anyone think that number is
excessive?
Another favorite criticism is that we pay ouir
employees too much. And yet a.recent salary
survey that was conducted by an outside inde-
pendent firm concluded that the vast majority
of Nassau County employees receive salaries
comparable to those in similar counties. As for
cutting the number of employees, that possibili-
ty exists and has to be considered. But with the
unemployment rate for Nassau.County already
at 12.3 percent, I hope that option will be one of
the last we may have to consider. In reality,
county salaries are such that for every regular
employee that would be cut, the "savings" to
each Nassau County citizen would be less than
a dollar per year.
So let's look at the specific criticisms of the
editorial (noting that two of our commissioners
have been here 3 1/2 years, and the other


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Needs a light
I am writing to express my con-
cern regarding the intersection of
A1A and License Drive in Yulee.
While a traffic signal has recently
.'be~n instdJled at the intersection of
AL' arid CO,~n, I ,:'rr-, Oin ie jut
a few hundred yards to the west,
the real need for a traffic signal is at
the intersection with A1A and
License Drive.
This intersection serves not only
a shopping center with several
banks and three large anchor
stores, it serves the apartment com-
plex behind the shopping center
and the newly expanded tax collec-
tor's office across the street. Since
the opening of the apartment com-
plex and the expansion of the tax
collector's office, the number of
vehicles attempting to turn into and
out of both sides of AlA has
increased exponentially.
Eastbound drivers turning north
into the shopping center are often
confused about the right of way,
making it terribly difficult for driv-
ers exiting the shopping center onto
A1A. Westbound A1A drivers turn-
ing into the tax collector's office
often block the view of all drivers at
the intersection.
Last week, when I turned into
,the shopping center, there was a
line of 12 cars trying to exit the
shopping center onto A1A.
This intersection is truly haz-
ardous and presents a danger to all
drivers passing through. I have
asked our State Rep. Janet H.
Adkins and County Commission
Chair Michael Boyle to ask the
appropriate agencies to study this
intersection and to implement plans
for the remedy of this hazard.
I hope News-Leader readers will
contact their elected officials with
input about this intersection.

Horse on the beach
When you see a horse on the
beach you need to know exactly
what it means for our community:
money. Horses represent money
that is coming into and thriving in
our community. Every horse must
eat, exercise; be groomed, shoed,
vetted, tacked and transported.
Riders must learn the skill of riding
which takes time on a horse that
must be cared for every day. All of
these activities mean jobs for people
in our community.
Amelia Island is one of the few
places in Florida where equestri-
ans can ride horses on the beach.
Ten years ago, Polo Magazine wrote
a tiny article about Amelia Island
beach riding, putting Amelia Island
on the equestrian map along the I-
95 corridor stretching from the
Hamptons to Palm Beach.
Thankfully, beach riding has
brought many vacationing eques-
trians and their admirers to our
area. Many have bought homes
here having fallen in love with our
genteel southern lifestyle of which
horses are an important tradition.
Horses symbolize our community's


S- d% *'4, t ,4&


refinement and are the hallmark of
our gentry.
I, for one, am glad to see the
horsey set here and spending their
money every day. One only has to
look around Publix or have lunch
out in town to notice the dangling
polo mallet pendants, stirrup ear-
rings, snaffle bit rings and paddock
boots their ladies wear to recognize
them; not to mention their not so
subtle trucks and horse trailers in
the parking lots of Starbucks and
Ace Hardware. Beach riding on
Amelia Island is a very small, but
extremely lucrative niche that sets
our little community apart from the
rest of the country.
We as a community must pro-
tect horseback riding on the beach
from those who do not understand
the overall economic or cultural
value horses possesses. For every
horse on the beach, understand that
the rest of the herd is quietly being
stabled and ridden in our country-
side, providing jobs for the people of
Nassau County. Remember, hors-
es mean money that is being spent
and lawfully earned in our commu-
nity each and every day.

Ron and Rush
As a longtime admirer of Ron
Sapp's ability to seek, detect and
write the truth, even though the
two of us are at opposite ends of
the political spectrum lie's a lib-
eral, I'm a conservative I have a
suggestion: It is that my friend Ron
take a three-week, uninterrupted
(Monday through Friday, noon to 3


p.m. WOKV AM) dose of Rush
Limbaugh.
Like a true liberal, Ron proba-
bly listens to what the other politi-
cal pundits say about Rush and not
listen to him first-hand on a consis-
tent basis.
Were Ron a consistent listener
like myself, he would never have
stated erroneously in his Debate
and Tackle column (March 24) that
Rush said he'd leave the country
permanently. What Rush said was,
he'd go to Costa Rica for medical
treatment as many Americans do.
Truly, Rush is a great American.
I believe Ron is as well.
What a shame Ron hasn't been
blessed by the huge gift of truly
knowing Rush through Talk Radio
for more than 20 yeais as have more
than 20 million listeners.
Come on, Ron, take a three-week
dose of Rush!

Obamacare
"We hold these truths to be self-
evident, that all men are crated
equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalicn-
able Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness. That to secure these
rights, Governments are instituted
among Men, deriving their just pow-
ers from the consent of the gov-
erned."
Most people will recognize these
words from the Declaration of
Independence. Now I ask you, is
Obamacare an unalienable right? I
think not. Our Creator gives iiiialien-


able rights, and not our government.
Has Obamacare been instituted by
"the consented of the governed?" I
think not: This bill was passed
through a process never intended
for passage of legislation of this mag-
nitude. It was passed through cor-
rupt and dishonest means bribes,
threats, intimidation and special
deals for dishonorable politicians.
According to Rasmussen
Reports, "just 21 percent of voters
believe the federal government has
the consent of the governed" in pass-
ing Obamacare. Scott Rasmussen
says that "the. gap between
Americans who want to govern
themselves and politicians who want
to rule over them may be as big
today as the gap between the
colonies and England during the
18th century." Maybe it is time to
reacquaint ourselves with the
Declaration of Independence and.
remember what our founding
fathers intended for our great nation
- Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness endowed by our
Creator, and not the heavy band of
the federal government.
If you would like to learn more,
our Clerk of Court/Comptroller
John A. Cravwford will be speaking
on the "Declaration of
Independence" on Friday, April 9
from 7 to 9 p.m. at the American

Spending

three have been here only 11/2 years).
I Consider, "We've lived beyond our means."
In reality during the last three years we paid off
$12 million of landfill debt (saving $60,000/
month in interest), we paid off another $5 mil-
lion for the new mobile communication system,
we established a $500,000 Hurricane
Emergency Fund, we completed a state-of-the-
art Emergency Operations Center (fully paid
for), an American Beach Community Center
(also paid for), the Goffinsville Park (with boat
ramp, fishing pier, walking trails and children's
play area), we began using impact fees for road
projects, we repealed the 5-cent gas tax, all the
while increasing financial reserves to $16 mil-
lion. Is that being extravagant?
And then there's the favorite, "County gov-
ernmentfor most of the past decade has
presided over the largest increase in county
spending in our history." Sensational, but mis-
leading. Let's look at the facts of the last three
BOCC audited financial statements (June 2007
to August 2009), which are the only expendi-
tures current commissioners have had the
authority to approve. Starting with $66.9 mil-
lion in June.2007, bur August 2009 expendi-
tures were down to $60.3 million, and our
September 2010 expenditures are projected to
drop to $56.6 million, or a 15.3 percent
decrease overall. Yes, that's right, a 15.3 per-
cent decrease, not an increase. Compare that
record with any of the five Constitutional
Officers, all of whom had increases for that
same time period.
Finally I'd like to revisit the "comment"
that we either go along with the News-Leader's
recommendation to "cut government," or "we
(Commissioners) will pay" (I hope he means at
the ballot box). I'd like to compare that senti-
ment with that from an unknown gentleman
who recently approached me at the grocery
store saying he didn't envy the current budget
issues the BOCC was facing. I acknowledged
the pending challenges and assured him we
would consider all reasonable options, to which
he replied, "I haven't always agreed with every
vote you've cast, but I've always believed you
followed your conscience and tried to do the'
right thing. You keep doing that, and you'll
have my support even if I may disagree with
you on a single issue."
Quite a contrast.

Magnolia Garden Club celebrates 60years ofgiving


- HEATHER. PERRY
News-Leader

From their first planting of
pine seedlings donated by
Container Corp. in 1950 to pres-
ent day donations to Micah's
Place, Hope House and the
Barnabas Center, the Magnolia
Garden Club has been about
more than just flowers.
For the past 60 years, the
ladies of the club have per-
formed many types of commu-
nity service including donating
a mechanical chimer for the
courthouse clock tower in 1986
and projection equipment to the
Amelia Island Museum of
History in 1993.
Founded in 1950, the club
was initially composed of the
newly married women in town.
"There was another garden
club, but that was mostly for
the older women," said charter
member Mary Agnes White.
"We started out as young-
sters, of course, full of vim and
vigor. Our 'founder, Mrs.
(Marjorie) Merrow, said we'd
have to save a place for her
son's wife, if he ever found one.
Eventually he did marry and of
course, she joined the group."
Centre Street looked differ-
ent in those days, said White,
and one of the first projects the
club took on was maintaining a
grouping of three palms and
flowers.
"We chose that early on as
our project so for many years
we kept that up and had flowers
there and all that. One of the
things we're most proud of is
the gazebo in Central Park. We
built that."
The club's 1978 cookbook
venture, called Centre Street
Cookery, featured not only
recipes but Amelia Island art-
work and a reference book of
Fernandina history. There were
no computers back then so the
women spent "two or three
nights a week for a couple of
months" typing out the recipes.
Since the initial printing of
2,000 copies, the cookbook has.
been reprinted six times for a
total of 19,000 books.
"We have often been
referred to as 'the richest gar-
den club in this part of the coun-
try' but we have done so much
with our money."
Putting their money where
their hearts are, the club has
performed many beautification
projects all over Fernandina
Beach such as planting palms
and shrubs on the west side of

years there's been a nest on a
snag between Home Depot
and Target, off island. I've
also heard from Ken, a resi-
dent of Brady Point

osprey nest off island there
too. Other osprey nests have
cropped up on cell towers in
our midst. And on a recent
boat trip up the St. Marys
River, more osprey nests
were visible as well.
Osprey populations are
doing well in Nassau County,
as you can see. If you start
watching an osprey nest dur-
ing breeding season, you will
have the thrill of seeing new
babies and watching them
grow, and a chance to admire
the dedication of both parents
taking turns fishing and
warming the nest.

their own observations to the

over the road by the bend at

sure to look at the snags the
dead trees in the area too,

Deposit Policies Ensure Reliable Service for All
Florida Public Utilities (FPU) has received a number of questions and there has been much discussion
in the community about deposits required for electric service. We'd like to cLarify how electric
utilities' deposit policies generally work, why they are required, when they are applied, and how
Florida Public Utilities tries to assist our customers in meeung these requirements.
Deposit Policies Governed by FPSC
Publicly regulated utilities, such as FPU, are required by the Horida Public Service Commission's
(FPSC) rules to meet various requirements and criteria for deposit policies to ensure reliable service
to all customers.
The utility industry is unique in that payments are collected nearly two months after service is
provided. Utilities must maintain adequate deposits to protect customers, since unpaid utility
bills not protected by deposits are ultimately treated as utility expenses that are included in the
determination of rates for all customers. Ultimately, deposits help to greatly reduce this expense,
resulting in lower rates than if the utility lacked adequate deposits.
Our Deposit Policies
Though deposits are necessary and are regulated by the FPSC. we fully recognize the burden they can
place on customers during difficult economic times. Our deposit policies are designed to minimize
the impact on customers who regularly pay bills on time while allowing us to continue providing stable
electric service to all. All deposits earn 6 percent interest per year. Annually earned interest is
credited to residential customer accounts. After 23 months of good standing with FPU, commercial
customers will then earn 7 percent interest per year. Deposits and interest are returned when a
customer, in good standing, closes their account with FPU.
o Policy for New Residential Customers FPU may waive the deposit if there is an Equifax
Beacon score of 760 or better. If this condition is not met, a deposit equal to a two-month
average bill including taxes is required.
o Policy for Existing Residential Customers For most existing esioential customers, deposits
typically do not increase if there is a good payment history and/or a satisfactory credit rating.
eposits up to a two-month average bill including taxes are required if there were late
-".2"--. -! -"ityrpients' or other infractions in the previous 15 months.
o Policy for New Commercial Customers All new commercial accounts are required to
have a cash deposit, equal to a two-month average bill including taxes, or a Surety Bond or
Irrevocable Letter of Credit. A deposit may be waived with a Dun & Bradstreet Score Class
of I or 2 with a Financial Stress Cass not exceeding 3.
o Policy for Existing Commercial Customers Deposit requirements vary based on the
customer's average monthly bill. For most existing commercial customers, there is no
deposit increase if there is a good payment history and/or a satisfactory credit rating.
Deposits up to a two-month average bill including taxes are required if there are three
or more late payments in the last 13 months.
Our Commitment
We are committed to trying to help customers who find it difficult to meet payment or deposit
requirements. We have many convenient billing and payment options, from budget billing to online
bill pay. We work on an individual basis with commercial and residential customers to develop
payment plans, if necessary, to meet deposit requirements.

Battery arrest
A Piney Island man was
charged with aggravated bat-
tery March 22 after a man
allegedly was hit with a surf-
board for dropping a pie, frac-
turing two of his ribs.
The victim told authorities
that Scott William Lawhorne,
52, of 4525 Limpkin Lane
knocked him to the ground
with a surfboard March 20,
then hit him in the back and
side, according to Lawhorne's
arrest report.
The victim told authorities at
the scene he didn't want to
press charges, the report stat-
ed. But Lawhorne was arrested
two days later after a visit to
Baptist Medical Center Nassau
revealed the victim had two
cracked ribs.
The altercation allegedly
started about 2 p.m. March 20
when the victim dropped a pie
in Lawhorne's garage refriger-
ator while putting some other
food away, according to the
report.
When Lawhorne asked
about the pie, the victim
allegedly admitted to dropping
it and offered to pick it up, but
Lawhorne responded by hitting
his cap, the report stated.
Things escalated from
there, with the victim allegedly
threatening Lawhorne with a
golf club after being struck with
the surfboard, the report stat-
ed.
According to the report,
Lawhorne said he flicked the,
victim's hat after he smashed'
the pie,,then was grabbed by
the throat by the victim.
Lawhorne was taken to the
Nassau County Jail but was

Tirade not tactful but effective


granddaddy might think he is arro-
gant. Your lawn care technician might
have a not-so-high opinion of him.
But if you happen to have a high school-aged
son who is talented enough to play major col-
lege football, you're probably seriously consid-
ering placing him in the hands of Urban
Meyer.
The coach showed last week why he is one
of the best, if n.r I ti,.- best, recruiter in the
country. And he did so in a fashion that
explains why so many people have a sour opin-
ion of the guy and why many mamas and dad-
dies embrace him.
For those who haven't already heard,
Orlando Sentinel sports writer Jeremy Fowler,
who I must say does an excellent job covering
the University of Florida, included the follow-
ing quote from Gators' WR Deonte Thompson
concerning new QB John Brantley in his blog
last week:
"You never know with Tim (Tebow),"
Thompson said. "You can bolt, you think he's
running but he'll come up and pass it to you.
You just have to be ready at all times. With
Brantley, everything's with rhythm, time. You
know what I mean, a real quarterback."
Of course, the word "real" was blown out of
proportion in the national media, who
appeared as if they were using Thompson to
validate several expert opinions that Tebow
won't make it as a quarterback in the NFL. So
when Fowler returned to the Florida practice
field later in the week, Meyer went off on him.
"I told you five years ago: Don't mess with
our players," Meyer said. "Don't do it. You did
it. You do it one more time and the Orlando
Sentinel's not welcome here ever again. Is that
clear? It's yes or no."
Definitely not the most tactful way to get a
point across, especially when there is a cam-
era rolling and about 15 reporters around with
tape recorders and notepads. But Meyer real-
firmed in his tirade what he has always
preached, which is that the Florida football


program is his extended fam-
ily and he intends to protect
his players as if they were his
own sons.
So the question is, who's
at fault in this situation -
Meyer, Fowler, Thompson?
Thompson's quote about
Tebow versus Brantley was
not a misprint, nor was it
used out of context by
SPORTS Fowler, so it appears the
reporter is the most innocent
TAL in this situation. All the guy
did was his job, which is to
JOHlN L. take notes and quotes for his
CRAWFORD blog. Can't fault a guy for try-
s.... ing to bring home the bacon.
Tebow himself has gone
on record to defend Thompson, who I'm sure
would have chosen his words differently if he
could turn back time. Replace the word "real"
with "traditional" or "pro-style" and it's very
likely we aren't having this conversation.
While I'm pretty sure he meant no ill will
toward Tebow, Thompson said what he said.
People .a ii. .ti -r,, misspeak.
Meyer went overboard, but in the end he
was merely doing what he sees as his job,
which is protecting his players. He might be
arrogant, brash, egocentric, a prima donna.,
But in my book, he's also a genius. Because
while last week's incident will be seen in a
negative light by the majority, Meyer's target
audience probably grew a little fonder. "Don't
mess with our players. Don't do it," was proba-
bly music to the ears of a doting mama whose
baby runs a sub 4.4 40-yard dash.
If you wonder how a guy can go from retir-
ing to an indefinite leave of absence to signing
the lop-rated recruiting class in the land within
a span of a iii, ,ll-,i.'1 h:,h well, wonder no
more. Ile's all about his players, which in turn
makes their parents all about him.

days. E-mail himn atjlcrawford727@aol.com.

Five Points records its first win in FDSL


There are times whentit
seems no matterwhat we do
or how hard we try, things
just don't'go our way. Some in
the world my attribute this to-
just plain bad luck. But
Christians understand every
circumstance, no matter the
outcome, produces personal
growth in faith.
As the old saying goes,
"persistence pays off' and
staying the course will pro-
duce results. This was the
case Saturday as Five Points
Baptist Church recorded its
first win ever in the Family
Driven Softball League.
"So, that's what it feels like
to win?" Marvin Sloan asked
as he was getting a hug from.
the league president. As the
final out was recorded for the
victory, Five Points first base-
man Troy Reed put his hands
over his head with his eyes
turned toward heaven and
slowly walked off the field.
Catcher Kayla Stevens walked
to the dugout with her hand
raised high in the air as
Pastor Alan Brown yelled to
the official scorekeeper,
"Write that down."
Not only did Five Points
win, the team defeated one of
the top teams in the FDSL in
Celebration Team Two by the
score of 16-12.
As the teams gathered on
the infield for prayer, board
member John Culbreth
smiled and said, "Everybody
in the league has been cheer-
ing for this moment to hap-
pen, but no body wanted to be
the victim." ,I
You really could got tell
Team Two had lost the game
as their joy to see Five Points
finally get the monkey off its
back was a wonderful mo-
ment for everyone, according
to President Ernie Stuckey.
As Five Points returned to
the dugout to gather their
gear, Pastor Brown stated to
several people who were
standing outside the dugout
to congratulate the victors,
"Well, we just ruined our per-
fect record," as laughter
broke out. What Pastor
Brown was referring to was


the fact Fiv- P.,ir.is bhad not ,
won a gainr .l- rI th:i.. e.p-
tion of the league.
Last season Five Points
lost all 10 games and, toe
many, 2009 would have been
considered a failure. But in
typical Five Points fashion,
the desire to have fun and the
Christ-like behavior by the
members won them the
biggest prize that can be
awarded in the FDSL in the
"Christ Fellowship Award."
Entering 2010, Five Points
brought in a much stronger
squad and has played some
very close games only. When
many viewed the talent of
Five Points on opening day,
their was no question that
this was a greatly improved
team, but the wins simply
avoided them as they would.
record 11 straight losses.
The past few weeks, frus-
tration would try to over take
the team, but Pastor Alan
Brown, who happens to be a
very good coach, would calm
his squad and put everything
in perspective that playing
softball was intended to be
fun.
The game started with'
Team Two taking a 4-3 lead in
the first inning, but as with
every game Five Points has
played, the score would be
close as the sixth inning
began. Mark Skipper put Five
Points within striking dis-
'tance with a three-run homer,
making the score 12-11 in
Team Two's favor. But Five
Points had been in that posi-
tion many times before as the
seventh inning began.
With persistence and
determination, the Five
Points bats came alive as
Sloan started the inning with
a double. Julie Skipper
reached first base on an error
as Jeff Schol drove-a shot to
left field. Stevens reached
first base on a walk.
Coach Brown called time
and put in a faster base run-
ner for Stevens, setting up
Five Points' best player,
Brandon Smith, at the plate.
Smith produced with a base
hit and scored from a power-


fubhit by Christine: Meltonias
the\hall almostjknoeked the.
glove off the third baseman's
hand..In all, Five points
scored five runs in the sev-
enth, making the score 16-12.
Skipper started the final-
inning, striking out the first
batter, and the game ended
with a running catch in the
outfield by Neil Murray.
This week's player of the
week is Christine Melton,
who went 4-for-5 at the plate
and made key hits at critical
times in the game.
In other action this week,
Celebration Team Three de-
feated Lannie Road 13-3. Josh
Cassidy went 2-for-3 for the
victors. Player and coach
Tommy Dyer and his wife,
Mary, celebrated their 40th
anniversary as his Fernan-
dina Beach Church of Christ
defeated Yulee 11-5. Lee Led-
better went 3-for-4 for the vic-
tors.
Christwalk got one step
closer to the league champi-
onship as it defeated half of
'last year's champions, Spring-
hill Saints, 14-8. Jim Chamber-
lain went 4-for-4 and scored
four runs for Christwalk.
The only team capable of
catching Christwalk is
Celebration Team One as
Andrew Minor went 4-for-4
and scored four runs as it
defeated First Baptist team
One 1-5. Team One will need
help from fellow church mem-
bers as the final two remain-
ing games for Christwalk are
with Celebration Team Two
and Celebration Team Four.

it is a very common problem on

you can hope to fix this situation is to change

Free vessel safety check
As the weather starts to
get warmer and with the
increase in daylight hours
more and more recreational
boaters will be getting their
boats ready for the spring and
summer seasons. Before hit-
ting the water, the Coast
Guard Auxiliary urges


boaters to make sure they
have the required safety
equipment and.that it is in
working order by taking
advantage of a free vessel
safety check. -
Vessel safety checks are
conducted by qualified mem-
.bers of the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary and are the best
way of learning about prob-
lems that might be a violation
of state or federal laws and
provide the boating public
with additional safety tips that
could possibly mitigate or
eliminate preventable danger
on the water. Vessel safety
checks can be conducted on
any type of watercraft from
boats, personal watercraft to
kayaks.
Life jackets, fire extin-
guishers and distress signals
are just some of the items
required by federal igula-
tions. The Coast Guard also-
suggests boaters equip their
vessels with a marine VHF
radio, GPS device and 406
MHz EPIRB (Emergency
Position Indicating Radio
Beacon for off shore boating).
There aren't any penalties


associated with not passing
the check. Those who do pass
may display this year's decal
on their boat.
Now is also a great time to
take advantage of one of the
many boating safety courses
offered by the Coast Guard
Auxiliary and become
acquainted or reacquainted
with basic boating skills, sea-
manship and the most cur-,
rent rtiles and regulations
that may also save a live or

Knee replacement recovery truly a


We have a new knee at ou" house.
It has been a long awaited answer
to ongoing Big Guy Big Knee
issue. We waited for a long time
for the King of Knees to do his magic and are
now recovering and in "rehab." Sometimes I
wonder who needs rehab the most the
patient or the caregiver?
We survived the surgery, and I say we
because it is a team. It takes the advocate
and/or "responsible adult," my self-assigned
official title.
There are stages in major reconstructive
surgery, as there are in any surgery. Part of
replacing a hip or knee comes after the sur-
gery and involves a careful and deliberate dedi-
cation to rehabilitation. The doctors who per-
form the truly miraculous surgery depend on
the patient's follow-up. It takes a patient, their


partner and the rehab team
Sto insure that the result is
good and successful.
So the Big Guy has a new
knee. Bad knee gone and
new, shiny knee in place, with
a neat 18-inch zipper to prove
it. Bad knee is gone, but not
always bad mood. Those who
have gone before have
FROM warned us the first weeks
THE are tough, but it is worth it in
PORCH the end. The first weeks have
been tough pain manage-
merit is a fine art and I am
Dickie not sure we mastered it.
Anderson When is too much or too little
and what price do you pay for
the heavy-duty painkillers?


A friend reminded me that one of my
favorite writers, Erma Bombeck, once said she
would rather have 10 sick children than one*
sick husband. She was right. Numbers may be
low, but she is right.
There have been. victories. A biggie car
keys. The equipment that made our house look
more like a "home" than our house has slowly
disappeared. We are down to a cane.
The average hospital stay after knee joint
replacement is usually three to five days. Like
so many before him, the Big Guy noticed dra-
matic improvement. Three weeks after surgery
the improvement was noticeable and walking
required no cane. The pain caused by the dam-
aged joint and bone on bone rubbing has been
replaced by a "new gliding surface" that was
created during surgery.
After about 6 weeks, most people are walk-


team.effort

ing comfortably with minimal assistance. Once
muscle strength is restored with physical ther-
apy, people who have had knee joint replace-
ment surgery can enjoy most activities. Big
Guy's list is topped by golf.
1Not that I underestimate the trauma and
challenge that a knee replacement offers, but it
isn't easy on the home front support team. If
you are in a shared workload household, all of
a sudden it is a team effort.
Someone needs to start a caregiver support
group or rehab. My prerequisites include per-
haps a spa day or two, maybe jewelry, of course
wine, dinner and flowers.
The actual patient is still number one.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your comments.

Forum to discuss saving sea turtles


"Saving Sea Turtles" will be
the subject of a nature forum
sponsored by the Wild Amelia
Nature Festival and the city of
Fernandina Beach Department
of Parks and Recreation on April
13 at 7 p.m. at the Peck Center
on 11lth Street.
The guest speaker will be
Mary Duffy, president of Amelia
Island Sea Turtle Watch, an
organization of volunteers that
has worked tirelessly over the
last two decades to help sea tur-
tles survive.
At this, the fifth in a series of
"Wild Nite" nature forums lead-
ing up to the Wild Amelia
Nature Festival May 21-23,
Duffy will discuss the work of
Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch
- the monitoring and counting of
nests and hatchlings the group
is responsible for each nesting


season.
The nesting season on
Amelia Island, which runs from
about May 1 through Aug. 31, is
about to begin. Sea turtles
remain an endangered and pro-
tected ancient species; much of
their lives remains a mystery
to scientists, but great efforts
continue to be made to help
them survive. Loggerhead and
green turtles most commonly
nest on Amelia Island, with log-
gerheads by far the most com-
mon.
To learn more about sea tur-
tles and how you can help pro-
tect them and ensure their sur-
vival, plan to attend the
program, which is free and open
to the public. For more infor-
mation about the Wild Amelia

earning her trust and watch-
