City and county commissioners will
consider consolidating fire depart-
ments based on the recommendations
of a recent study for the county. But
city officials are especially wary.
A report by the TriData Division of
the System Planning Corp., an inde-
pendent company contracted.to study
,the efficiency of Nassau County Fire
Rescue, recommended that the coun-
ty and city consider combining their
respective departments.
"With demands for service increas-

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Although it's a simple process for a
person to create a Facebook page, city
commissioners learned recently.it's a
little more complicated for cities
because of*public records laws.
But the commissioners made no
decisions during an April 5 work ses-
sion as to when or if the city will estab-
lish an official Facebook page or use
other social media to communicate
with residents.
City Events Coordinator Susan
Hurley presented a social media study
she and other members of city staff
recently compiled.
The study included a legal opinion
from the Florida Attorney General to
the Coral Springs city attorney, which
stated that information posted on city
Facebook and other social media pages
is subject to public records retention
and Sunshine laws.
The Fernandina Beach study also
suggested the city may eventually find
a need to hire a public information offi-
cer to handle press releases and pub-
lic service announcements, as well as
marketing and branding for the city.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said at the meeting that although he
does not have Facebdk page, he was
aware that a "high percentage" of the
population uses it. The city, he said,
should establish a social media pres-
ence because "we need to improve not
*what we do, but how we do it ... we
rteed to inform and educate people,
and we may be able to use Facebook."
"My question is about public
records," Vice Mayor Tim Poynter
said. "How much (information) has to
be retained for public records? It'
seems it could be a nightmare."
Hurley said most cities that use
social media have a policy in place, so
that everything posted on web pages
-.whether by the city or by others -
gets printed and retained as a public
record.
S"I'm worried about people request-
ing public records (from social media
pages)," Poynter said. "Something like
this is beyond onerous for the city
clerk's office."
Commissioner Arlene Filkoff said
she liked the concept of "having a sin-
gular voice for the city."
"Whatever communications go out
from the city, it should be owned by
one person, one department and one
ftmction." Filkoff said. "We need to get
together centrally ... I'm not convinced
the first step you take is this wholly
interactive thing."
"The ultimate goal is to be interac-
tive," Hurley said, "but you could start
with baby steps... and have a Facebook
page you can't comment on." Hurley
said Gainesville's Facebook page was
a good example of what a city web
page could look like.
Hurley added that it would be a
good idea for the city to have backup
software to store records of social
media pages, but she did not have any
idea about the cost.

clinic

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
voted Monday to draft a letter express-
ing its approval of a proposed federal-
ly funded community health center.
Malcolm Noden, chairman of the
county's Vision Into Action commit-
tee, recommended drafting the letter
after his group unanimously approved
the idea. The VIA committee is tasked
with recommending implementation
strategies for the county's Vision 2035
plan.
The medical center is being sought
by.a coalition of the Barnabas Center,
the county health department, Sutton
Place Behavioral Health Center and
Baptist Medical Center Nassau. The
coalition is currently putting together
a grant application for federal funds to
plan the center. Earlier this month, the
county commission donated $2,000 to
the coalition for the purpose of hiring
a grant writer.
"You have already heard from
Wanda Lanier, who is the executive
director of Barnabas Center... for the
purposes of proceeding toward a
federal planning grant for the purpose
of having what will eventually
become a federally qualified health
center," Noden told the commission
Monday.
"One of the requirements for fed-
erally qualified health centers is that
the county in which the facility is locat-
ed is asked to provide a letter sup-
porting the agency, or group of agen-
cies or consortium, that is planning
the center." v
If built, the center would serve low-
inc6me and uninsured citizens. Lanier

committed to beach maintenance


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The city of Fernandina Beach has
not declined to pay for future beach
maintenance, according to a presen-
tation by Erik Olsen of Olsen
Associates, coastal engineering con-
sultants for the city.
But Olsen also conceded at the
April 5 city commission meeting that
"future defense spending ... to defray
the cost of beach disposal may be
reduced."
Olsen's presentation, which
described the history of local beach
construction and the city's part in it,
was made in part because of a recent
statement by City Manager Michael
Czymbor that the city could not afford
to pay its share of maintenance to its
beaches in 2013.
City commissioners agreed in 2007
to have the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers re-sand the city beachfront
from Fort Clinch to Sadler Road over
50 years at a "projected" total cost of
$188.8 million. The federal govern-


'You have a contract for 50 years. You can't
end that contract summarily. You have to put
your money up when your money is due.'
ERIK OLSEN, ENGINEERING CONSULTANT


ment said then the city's share of the
project would be $45.9 million.
Olsen at the meeting said the fed-
erally authorized shore protection
project cannot be ended, and that fed-
eral funding is limited to a maximum
of 50 years. Maintenance of eroded
beaches was scheduled to be done at
five-year intervals, but "the actual tim-
ing of renourishment is generally
predicated on the basis of its meas-
ured performance of a beach fill over
time."
After a recent study, Olsen ques-
tioned whether the city needs to go
forward with the five-year interval of
re-sanding. The U.S. Navy annually
rebuilds a mile of the city beach at no
cost to the city as part of a contract


agreement that was written when the
St. Marys River channel was dredged
for the Kings Bay, Ga., submarine
base decades ago.
A letter written in February from
Czymbor to the Corps of Engineers
stated that Olsen Associates found
that the annual Navy beach con-
struction project made the first five-
,year construction project unneces-
sary.
Czymbor in his letter also asked
the Corps of Engineers to revisit the
project after Olsen Associates has
done three years of beach monitoring.
Olsen's initial monitoring found
that the beach is not eroding as quick-
ly as had been projected. Olsen said
at the meeting that the renourish-


ment project, because of sand deposit-
ed from the Federal Navigation
Channel Maintenance Project, has
been "performing extremely well
(but) nor'easters are our worst
enemy."
According to figures, 97,000 cubic
yards of sand were lost since the
shore protection project began in late
2008, but channel maintenance that
was done in February and March this
year has replaced 80,000 cubic yards.
But according to Olsen, the city
is "bound by contract" to "act as co-
sponsor of the federal beach project
as constructed in 2008 for 50 years."
Calling Fernandina Beach "the,
poster child of perseverance" for
beach projects, Olsen said the first
beach erosion study was done in 1946,
and it has taken since that time until
2008 to get the large federal project
going.
"It took 62 years from when the
problem was identified by the feder-
al government," Olsen said. "It's a dif-

For the News Leader

A local school has become
one of the first to offer its stu-
dents access to the learning tool
that has been transforming edu-
cation the iPad by Apple.
Teachers in Chicago public
schools recently began using
iPads in elementary classrooms
where they are already seeing
gains as high as 50 percent in
reading, math and science.
These success stories did
not go unnoticed at Amelia
Island Montessori School
(AIMS), said Renee Crane,
Head of School. "One of our
families, who asked to remain
anonymous, had been explor-
ing how the iPad was being
used in schools. They came to
us and offered to make a dona-
tion to start a program here,"
said Crane. "The donors asked
if the PTO would participate
and the PTO unanimously
agreed. We are very grateful for
everyone's generosity and very
excited."
Faculty member Lauri
Abruscato has- been using her
own iPad in her primary class-
room for over a year, with chil-
dren as young, as three years
old. "I use it as a supplement to
the Montessori method of learn-
ing. It keeps children interested
in practicing skills and you can
see how easily they can go from
there to use it to expand their
knowledge- and grow their
minds," said Abruscato.
Student Malia Appleby adds
that working with the iPad is
"really fun and I do tracing and
spelling and crosswords. I'll do
numbers later."
Students in the school's


higher grades are already mak-
ing plans for using the 10 new
iPad 2s when the program rolls
out at the beginning of the next
school year: a multimedia ver-
sion of a school newspaper, an
in-depth study of the elements,
and opportunities to learn and
practice foreign languages are
all possibilities.
"The uses go way beyond
simply looking things up or
playing a game," says Kate
Harris, a mother of an AIMS
student as well as the school's
director of marketing and pub-
lic relations. "One student might
create a presentation on some-
thing they're studying, inte-
grating video, drawings and
photography. Another student
with special needs can use spe-
cific applications to help com-
municate with their classmates.
And it can help both of them
become enthusiastic, lifelong
learners."
Crane says the school's hope
is that "this program will grow
and we will eventually be able to
provide every student with their
own iPad. This is a great start."
One additional donor has
already stepped forward, and
last week's news brought anoth-
er encouraging story: Lake
Wales High School in central
Florida was just given $1 mil-
lion for its technology depart-
ment, with the funds designated
for MacBook laptops and iPads.

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader


A rabid raccoon attacked a
dog last week on the Omni
Amelia Island Plantation,
-according to Nassau County
Animal Services Director
" Deborah Biggs.
Biggs said the attack took
place April 6 while the dog's
owners were walking it.
"They had been walking
the dog on Wednesday
evening, and the raccoon came
out of nowhere and attacked
the dog, and it did break the
skin," she said.
The raccoon was later cap-
tured and tested for rabies.
"We picked it up and sent it
to the lab on Thursday, and
got the call on Friday after-
noon that it was positive,"
Biggs said.
The dog did not have a cur-
rent rabies vaccination when it
was attacked, and the owners
decided to-euthanize it, Biggs
said. *
'There's only a couple of
choices when the animal is not
current on rabies vaccination,
which' is why we always,
always preach to be current
on rabies vaccinations," she
said. "So the choices were to
quarantine it for six months
or euthanize it. This dog was

talking about euthanizing it
anyway, and this was one point
to add to that decision. That
was done on Saturday."
Biggs said even with the
vaccine, pets bitten by wild ani-
mals should be quarantined
for 45 days.
"No vaccine is 100 percent,
even in human vaccinations,"
she said. "There's always that
small chance."
Biggs added that the dis-
covery of a rabid animal on
the island means pet owners
should be extra cautious.
"Everybody needs to make
sure their animals are vacci-
nated and be aware of the
wildlife in their area," she said.

careful to reserve judgment
on its merit.
"It's a recommendation
that came from an outside
source. It stands on its own
merits," said Young. "I don't
have a personal opinion on it
one way or the other. I think
the folks who make those
decisions are going to make
good and wise decisions. It
would have to be looked at
very carefully with a weather
eye to make sure all the
eventualities and concerns
were addressed appropriate-
ly."
City Fire Chief Dan Hanes,
however, is against consoli-
dation.
"My personal opinion is
that it's not in the best
interests of the city," said
Hanes, who announced last
month he would leave his post
in June to return to Fort
Lauderdale.

archiving service called
Smarsh could be used to store
public records, at a cost of
about $1,000 a month.
"I personally think this is a
great idea for the generation
that uses it," Rooney said.
"Some cities are saving every-
thing (that is posted on the
'web page). If you have a poli-
cy in place, you're going to
fare much better than those
who don't." Rooney added that
another social network could
replace Facebook in a few
years.
Poynter said he was still
concerned the city would
need a plan to recall informa-
tion for large public records
requests. "I know we.can save
everything," he said, "but
someone has to go over every-
thing."
City Clerk Mary Mercer
said she would have to follow

ficult process to get through."
Part-of the problem, he said,
was the "recalcitrance" on the
part of Nassau County to help
sponsor the project. "Usually
the county is the sponsor,"
Olsen said. "That's part of the
reason this was dragged out,
the county's lack of commit-
ment to be sponsor."
The total federal cost for the
project comes to almost 80 per-
cent, with the remainder to be
covered by local funds, accord-
ing to Olsen, such as those
from the state, county and city.
In 2008, the county and state
picked up half the 20 percent
remainder, but it is not clear if
funds will be available from the
county or state for the next
maintenance which would
leave the city with a bill of
about $3 million if the project
goes forward.
Olsen also noted in a mem-
orandum that "no federal funds
for the actual construction of a
renourishment project have
been appropriated by Congress
... only funding for the initia-
tion of pre-construction activi-
ties. No renourishment can
occur unless Congress appro-
priates construction funds in
the next 24 months."
Czymbor's letter was only
a recommendation for coordi-
nation with the Army Corps of
Engineers, Olsen said, and did
not mean that the city was end-


"There are several rea-
sons. ... The overriding factor
is that I think in these tough
economic times, it wouldn't
be the best idea for the city
to lose control over how their
resources are spent and how
those resources are
deployed."
Elected officials are reserv-
ing judgment until further
study is done.
"The way I look at it, (we
can't make a decision) until
we get all the information ... to
find out what would be the
best for the taxpayers in the
county as well as the city,"
said County Commission
Chair Walter Boatright. "I
really don't have an opinion
about it one way or the
other until we have all the
facts."
The date for the next joint
meeting of the city and coun-
ty commissions has not yet
been set.

because there was "no rush to

city had not been advised to

Olsen said. "There's no jeop-

WEDNESDAY APRIL 13.2011/NEWS-LEADER

Tax filing deadline looms


JASON ALDERMAN
For the News-Leader
Nobody likes being
nagged, but I'm going to risk
reader displeasure by remind-
ing everyone that there are
hefty financial consequences
if you owe income taxes and
do not file a return on time -
or at least request a filing
extension.
Ordinarily, the federal
income tax deadline is April
15; but this year the IRS has
granted a reprieve until
April 18. Nevertheless, here's
why procrastinating is a bad
idea:
If your 2010 federal tax
return (or extension request)
isn't postmarked or electroni-
cally filed by April 18, the
penalty on any taxes you owe
increases dramatically.
Generally, you'll have to pay
an additional 5 percent for
each full or partial month


you're late, plus interest, up to
a maximum penalty of 25 per-
cent. However, if you file your
return or request an exten-
sion on time, the penalty
drops to 0.5 percent per
month, plus interest.
Here's how it can add up:
Say you owe $2,000 in
federal income tax. If you
haven't requested an exten-
sion, you would be charged
an additional $100 (5 percent)
for each month you're late.
Had you filed for an exten-
sion, the penalty would drop,
to only $10 a month (0.5 per-
cent).
Contact the IRS early if
you won't be able to pay on
time. They may-even waive
the penalty, depending on
your circumstances. Call 800-
829-1040 or visit www.irs.gov
for more information.
Another way to avoid a
penalty: The IRS accepts pay-
ment by credit or debit card,

with a small convenience fee
that is tax deductible if you
itemize expenses. Just be
sure to pay off your card bal-
ance within a few months, or
the interest accrued might
exceed the penalty.
A few additional tax-filing
tips:
Find out what's new.
Because the tax code changes
every year, scan the IRS' Tax
Information for Individuals
website for updates before
diving in. Many of your ques-
tions are likely answered in
its Frequently Asked
Questions section.
Make, sure your return
is accurate. Common tax-fil-
ing errors include:
Omitting or filling in incor-
rect/illegible taxpayer ID
numbers, filing status,'
dependent names and Social
Security numbers
Documentation not
attached (W-2s, supplemental
forms, etc.)
Omitting income items
Tax return not signed and
dated
Information entered on the
wiong lines
Child tax credit incorrectly
calculated
Math errors. (Tax'soft-
ware does the math, but
you're still responsible for


entering correct numbers ini-
tially.)
Ask for help. If calculat-
ing your own taxes is too con-
fusing or time-consuming,
consider using tax-completion
software like Turbo Tax, or
hire a tax professional. A
sharp preparer could save you
a bundle by finding hidden
credits or deductions.
If cost is an issue, sever-
al free options are available to
seniors, military and low- and
middle-income taxpayers:
The IRS sponsors the
Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance Program (VITA)
and Tax Counseling for the
Elderly (TCE). Read Free Tax
Preparation on the IRS web-
site for information.
AARP Tax-Aide volunteers,
who are trained by the IRS,
provide free tax preparation
to low- and middle-income
taxpayers, with special atten-
tion to people over age 60. Go
to www.aarp.org/taxaide for
information.
Military personnel and
their families Worldwide can
get free assistance through a
progranri'offered through
VITA. Check with your base
for details. -

Big Florida trend:


big corporations


are big landowners


Florida Trend magazine is
appropriately named. It iden-
tifies and illustrates business
trends in the Sunshine State.
A recent article revealed a
surprising trend huge cor-
porations are continuing to
invest in Florida real estate.
And these mega-companies
have big plans for the big
parcels they own, despite a
gut-wrenching decline in the
value and appeal of real
estate.
A local favorite, St. Joe
Co., has been surpassed as
the largest private landowner
in the state. Plum Creek
Timber owns nearly 600,000
acres here, eclipsing St. Joe
by a slight margin.
Plum Creek is a prolific
landowner. The Seattle-based
company owns more land in
the U.S. tljan any other pri-
vate entity to the tune of 6.8
million acres in 19 states. Its
interests in Florida are
engrained in timber, but also
enmeshed in large-scale
developments.
Plum Creek has plans for
an inland port in Lake City, a
new community near
Gainesville and a 70,000-acre
initiative in eastern Alachua
County.
St. Joe, the longtime king
of Florida real estate, still
owns substantial acreage
here although it is half of
what it was. In fact, St. Joe
moved its headquarters from
downtown Jacksonville to be
closer to its prime holdings
in the Florida Panhandle.
It is there that St. Joe is
pursuing a residential real-
estate focus, with glitzy
developments such as Water
Color and Water Sound, with
others in the pipeline. St. Joe
donated the land for the new
Florida Beaches Internation-
al Airport outside Panama
City, and also has a commer-
cial project targeted for
there.
., The grand scheme is for
".t: airport (where Southwest-
IA lines has begun to 0,fly) to'
feed the appetite of its pre-
dominantly oceanfront resi-
dential communities from
Destin to Panama City
Beach. St. Joe owned a major
paper mill in Port St. Joe, but
has since closed it and con-
verted its timberland efforts
toward residential pursuits.
The fourth-largest private


holder of
Florida real
estate is
Rayonier

which owns
a mill in
S.' Fernandina
Beach. The
STEVE'Scompany's
STEVE'"S long-term
MARIKCT plans are to
PLACE continue to
grow tim-
ber for its
Steve Nicklas manufactur-
ing opera-
tions, and proceed with the
massive TerraPointe devel-
opment in West Nassau
County.
TerraPointe will combine
residential and commercial
features, while shifting the
majority of the population
toward the Westside.
Rayonier also owns 200,000
acres along the 1-95 corridor
between Savannah, Ga., and
Daytona Beach, which
inevitably will appeal to the
flourishing shipping and
trucking industries around
Jacksonville.
The other top holders of
Florida property (with their
rankings) are: Foley Timber
Co. (3); Lykes Bros. (5);
Deseret Ranches of Florida
(6); Mosaic Co. (7); Bascom
Southern (8); Florida
Crystals (9); U.S. Sugar
Corp. (10).
All combined, these 10
companies own more than
5,000 square miles of Florida
property Most of the hold-
ings are agricultural, divided
between sugar cane and cit-
rus industries in the south
and timber in the north.
But there are substantial
interests in residential and
commercial developments
among them. For instance,
some of the timber will even-
tually be used in plants pro-
ducing futuristic biofuels
here and in southern
Georgia.
So despite the naysayers,
big industry continues to
have big interests in Florida
real estate a longtime
trend that apparently has no
end.

It's not looking


A while back I read the
headline "Marina losing
money ..." and it reminded me
of the days when the city's
Marina Department was run-
ning the show, and-yet in sub-
sequent editions of the News-
Leader there was a shocking
lack of concern from the citi-
zenry. No alarm, no concern,
no outrage, nothing. It seems
as if allis well with the city
marina, even as it silts in yet
again, and is losing money yet
again.
But recently Westrec (the
operator hired by the city)
came on bended knee to the
city commission to ask for
relief, because apparently
unbeknownst to them (when
they bid on the contract) they
discovered that our marina
has a siltation problem.
Really? That is very hard to


understand.
A national
firm of
Westrec's
reputation
didn't realize
that our
marina had a
S siltation,
OPINIONS problem?
OPINIONS OK, maybe
FROM that is the
THE case, but
GOLDFInSH then that

Coleman concern
about the

the city hired to "save the

JOHN M. DRE
NASSAU COUNTY TAX COULECrOR
The Nassau County Tax Col0ector's Office offers discounts to disabled American Veterans for both driver licenses
and vehicle registrations. Primarily, the.discounts are for veterans who are 100% service connected, permanent
and total disability, but there are also discounted rates for active military and retired military.
Driver Licenses:
For driver licenses, any veteran honorably discharged from the armed forces who ha~been determined by the,
Veterans Administration to have 100% service connected, permanent and total disability, and who is qualified to
obtain a driver license, is exempt from certain driver license fees.
The exempt fees are listed below. If 100% disabled, veterans are also exempt from all identification card fees.
The customer must present a card or letter from the Veterans Administration stating the veteran has a 100%r
service connected, permanent and total disability.
The card or letter will be scanned during the driver license transaction. Evidence of the card or letter can be
retrieved from the State of Florida's database for future transactions. The letter is issued when the veteran is.
first determined to have a 100% service connected, permanent and total disability. The letter is not reissued by
the Veterans Administration on a yearly basis and is to be accepted regardless of the issue date.
Questions regarding the issuance of a letter from the Veterans Administration should be directed to the Division
of Veterans Affairs at (800) 827-1000.-
The card or letter from Veterans Administration will waive:
*Original or renewal CDL, including $15 delinquent fee-$75
* Original Class E-$48 (Includes CDL for school board employee)

(as opposed to the regular $100). To. qualify, active' military personnel must provide military orders they are
stationed in Florida and a military White Card ID.
For retired military, the $20 license is available upon presentation of proof of Florida residency and either a
Blue Card or Red Card military ID. With the Red Card for retired reserve personnel, the card cannot be
accepted for the discount if more than one Social Security number is imprinted on it.
For those who are 100% disabled, the license is free.
Vehicle Registrations:
Several military license plates are offered by the State of Florida. They include ones honoring:
* Disabled Veterans (vehicle & motorcycle) Ex-Prisoner of War
* Gold Star Medal of Honor obtained from the State of Florida

private sector running the
show, it's somehow still the
city's fault. In spite of this, one
commissioner acknowledged
to me that even if the Westrec
deal wasn't really a good one,
it was the perception that '
change was good, so it was
good for the community.
Dredging is not the only
issue though, Westrec had no
bar to which they were to
measure their performance,
and the lack of sufficient rev- ;
enues to offset the expenses
should be alarming, consider-
ing the promises made when
the contract to them was
awarded. Any entity givenrr an
increased number of slips
(with initially deeper water),
renovated bathrooms, a new
boaters' lounge and a new,
high-speed fueling system,
should see an increase to rev-
enues, especially when com-
pared to the dilapidated facili-
ty.the' Marina Department
had to operate. But those
turnkey improvements
should have provided the
baseline, not the "success" .
story our local politicians try ;,.
"to biag about. The question
should have been and
remains, can they make
enough to. pay for the neces-
;sary maintenance to the mari-
'a, such as the dredging?
But now the city is
being asked to give Westrec a
,.pass because they cannot
nmike it work. And the com-
;mission seems more than
happy to make the conces-
sions, even though they
wouldn't give it to their own
staff, for the very same base
reasons. '
So here's a suggestion: the :'l
city should keep the $96,000 :,
annual fee and only pay
Westrec on actual perform- '
ance. In four years the city
would have $384,000 saved
that could be put towards the
dredging and guess what,
not only would the city and ^
the boaters win, so would
Westrec.
Maybe a little honest com-
mon sense could go a long
way to righting the ship, or at
least keep if from running ,
aground once agajn. Yes, pun.,

Decide for



yourself

Very rarely do I respond to a letter to the
editor as I respect the opinions of our read-
ers hnd over the years in the newspaper
business have come to realize it's exactly
that an opinion.
However, last week a letter writer pre-
sented questions and offered suggestions to
improve the paper and I feel obligated to
respond.
The letter writer questioned why often
reports in the News-Leader
of what the city is up to are
contrary to the explana-
tions of the mayor, city
manager and commission-
ers.
Specifically questioned
was the accuracy of the
reporting in the News-
'Leader. Is it factual and do
IM VIEW we practice the basics of
"responsible journalism"?
The answer to that
Foy Maloy, question is absolutely, -
yes.
Publisher Now it's difficult at
times if not impossible to
capture the subtleties and environment of
the commission meetings in print. We are
unable to surmise or interpret what the city
manager, mayor or fellow commissioners
meant to say or determine their logic..
However, rest assured the quotes printed
during the meeting are simply that exact
quotes.
I can tell you my intent and that of the
newspaper lies in what is in the best inter-
est of the entire community not what is in
the best interest of city government or any
government entity for that matter.
And I would expect thb views, justifica-
tions and defenses of elected officials and
especially government staff to defend their
positions and their jobs. '
The letter writer went on to suggest the
News-Leader make space available on an
ongoing basis for the city to respond to "any
editorial/article printed in the paper" and
present their side.
In fact, this is and has always been avail-
able to any and all readers of the News-
Leader- including the city. A space large
enough for 1,200 words is available in every
edition on our opinion/editorial pages. I
have. encouraged all elected officials to uti-
lize this opportunity throughout the year
and openly communicate to the public on
things they have accomplished and why
they vote on a topic the way they do.
Several have utilized this effective tool spo-
radically. Sadly only one, State Rep. Janet
Adkins, has committed to the task routinely,
and I applaud her for her commitment to
communicating with her constituents.
I encourage all readers, as the letter
writer does, to gather as much information
as possible on a topic from a variety of
sources and then make your own decision.
Don't take our word on it decide for
yourself. The city commission meetings are
now available for viewing at anytime online;
visit www.fbfl.us and click on "Streaming
Video."
And thank you for reading every edition.
Foy MaloyJr is publisher of the News-
Leader.

Is this really what we want to do?


Remember when we were kids and the
teacher gave us a coloring exercise, usually a
landscape trees, mountains, a few birds, the
sun, etc. There were outlines, these land-
scapes, and we were expected to color them
in, trying to "stay within the lines."
Imagine this landscape being the city of
Fernandina Beach and its quality of life, one
that's unique, extraordinary and special. And
imagine that for decades now we've done a
good job "staying within the liens," we've
increased the public's access to the beach,
built parks, preserved endangered lands, done
all kinds of things to give our community a
sense of place, a different place, one set apart
from other Florida beachfront cities.
Now imagine the same landscape being col-
ored by interest groups and individuals who
appear not to find value in uniqueness, in fact,
consider it an obstacle, and they start to color
outside the lines. Not that long ago we would
have found the resultant messy landscape
intolerable, but the Great Recession has given
them cover, it's allowed them to accomplish
goals that were once considered offensive,
anathema to a progressive community. It's
amazing, really, how an economic downturn
makes coloring outside the lines acceptable,
makes a community that once took great pride
in its uniqueness, vulnerable. Consider:
In the name of economic growth and job
creation we're considering extending the
hours for the sale of alcohol to 7 in the morn-
ing,.even on Sundays, and to accommodate the
bars we're going to drop the sale of food
requirement.


I Making more alcohol
available, proponents say, will
S-I help Fernandina Beach com-
pete with other tourist com-
munities and resort towns.
Increased availability, a repre-
sentative for the chamber of
commerce says, will "foster a
climate of good business
DEBATE practices." And from a down-
DEB-ATrE town bar owner, "Many towns
AND have adopted earlier hours,
TACILE particularly tourist-driven
towns." Oh, and the clincher
from that same bar owner, "If
Ron Sapp Fernandina Beach did not
relax the laws, people could
go to Mayport to drink on Sunday morning."
In short, increasing the availability of alco-
hol will send a message to the rest of the state,
indeed, the region that Fernandina Beach is,
to borrow a much-used phrase, "open for busi-
ness." At the very least it will send a message
to 7 a.m. Sunday morning drinkers, "Come to
Fernandina Beach instead of Mayport!"
In the name of economic growth and job
creation the city commission, a couple of years
ago, removed the prohibition against selling
and consuming alcohol at city recreation facili-
ties Central Park, Main Beach Park, the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center, the MLK
,Center, the streets of Fernandina, etc. The
streets of Fernandina thing is important
because critical thinkers surmised that the
real reason behind the ordinance, the real
motive was the Shrimp Festival and doing


away with the open container problem.
"In the name of economic growth and job
creation." How much damage has been done
to so much of this state because of those nine
words.
A familiar phrase is often parroted when
rationalizing support of increasing the avail-
ability of alcohol, "We can't legislate mortals."
OK, but we can protect and preserve long-held
community standards; we can try to protect an
essential part of our quality of life.
Botom line: is this really what we want to
be as a community, is this really were we care
to go?
The alcohol decision, for me, says a whole
lot more than just extending hours, it's the rea-
son given, the motivating factor, the not so
subtle catalyst if we're going to be able to
compete with other tourist communities, other
tourist-driven towns, we're going to have to
change who we are, we're going to have to be
more like them.
Key West, I'm sure, is a wonderful town -
I've never been there, it advertises itself as a
kind of place that many people enjoy. But do
we in Fernandina Beach want to be that same
kind of place? Some of us would say yes, loud-
ly, but I say no, loudly.
We've all-been given that same landscape to
color.'We've all been given crayons and I hope
that most of us want to stay within the lines -
that makes for a pretty picture. Some will,
however, try to color outside the lines, it's in
their interest I just hope there are enough of
us who want to avoid the mess that creates.
Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


'Nowwe understand.
The letter writer's attack on Mr.
(Mike) Thompson is very under-
standable considering the'view-
points expressed in his latest rant in
the News-Leader ("Orange alert,".
April 8) and other letters retrieved
from the Florida Times Union.
Mr. Thompson is a patriotic con-
servative who believes that'our
country is being destroyed by the
liberal policies of this administra-
tion. The letter writer is on the oppo-
site side of the spectrum, a com-
plete left-wing liberal. Based on the
results of the November 2010 elec-
tions, three-quarters of Northeast
Floridians voted conservative, and
do not share the same values as the
letter writer. Additionally, he
appears overly sensitive to the fact
that the Anita Bryant/Mike
Thompson "Save the Children
Campaign" overturned a Dade
County ordinance 33 years ago that
required, among others, faith based
organizations to hire homosexuals
Thank God Mike Thompson
took such a stand. In fact, the ordi-
nance was overtui-ned by a vote in
all of the 2,000-plus precincts in lib-
eral Dade County. That in itself is an
incredible feat, especially in a liberal
county, which still stands today 33
years later and has not been over-
turned. You have to ask yourself,
why would the letter writer object to
this, and why would he attack a well-
known patriotic American trying to
make a difference in this country?
Personally, I'm proud that Mr.
Thompson chose Amelia Island to
make his home, and to help make
our county a better place to live. I
recommend 'the letter writer attend
this Friday's 7 p.m. event at the
Peck Center and listen to Mr.
Thompson's viewpoints before pass-
ing judgment. I look forward to
meeting him myself.

OMG
Re: "Orange alert," April 8.
OMG! OMG! The sky is falling! The
sky is falling! Anita Bryant! Orange
Juice Queen? 1976!
A couple of points:
1. If the writer of the April 8 let-
ter to the editor or anyone else, for
* that matter -will affix his signature
to a check for $1.6 million, then he
can have all of the library he wants.
Any takers?
2. This "guy," Mike Thompson,
isn't organizing anything. The
Nassau Patriots Tea Party invited
him to speak at our monthly edu-
cational forum. This month's forum
is on April 15, tax day. Surprise!
Surprise! The subject of taxes may
be a part of his presentation!
So, letter writer, I invite you to
join us on Friday at 7 p.m. at the
Peck Center Auditorium, 516 South
10th St. There is no charge, and
you just might learn something.

Uninformed rambling
I think it is clearly time for the
News-Leader to reassess the value of
Steve Nicklas's business column in
each week's paper.
Why do we have to be exposed,
to his wacky politics and complete-
ly uninformed rambling about the
environment, instead of any busi-
ness advice of value to readers?
Last week's article entitled
"Panhandle beaches good as new"
(April 6) left me speechless in its
obvious right-wing science denier
nut mentality. He sounded a lot like
Ann Coulter rambling with an obvi-
ously embarrassed Bill O'Reilly
about the benefits of radiation and
downplaying the liberal media's
reporting on the nuclear disaster


JEFF PARKER/FLORIDATODAY


in Japan.
Seriously, he alludes to the Gulf
Coast being financially better off
because of the massive oil spill
because of the financial generosity
of BP. That is as much financial
advice as there was to his astound-
ingly ignorant assessment of the
environmental disaster.
He concludes the article with
this unbelievable sentence: "It turns
out the devastation was clearly a.
myth." That is just crazy, even for a
denier of science. We clearly have
no idea what the long-term effects
of all this will be, not to mention his
decision to ignore any damage that
wasn't financial to the area.
All this aside, I repeat my call to
the News-Leader to remove this col-
umn from the paper and replace it
with someone who wants to stick tb
financial advice, and not waste our
time with his way out politics and
issues way beyond his expertise.

Economy
It has been brought to my atten-
tion that there is movement on for
this whole month to boycott the
purchase of any and all goods from
China. Hooray, we need America
back, we need jobs for our people,
yes, it will hurt for a while but it
needs to be done, over 25 percent of
our children live in poverty, seniors
can't afford medical care and we
spend a billion a day in Iraq for
what? We need change, we need
our America back and be self-suffi-
cient.
William Caiazzo
Fernandina Beach

An alternative
to resort rentals
We are opposed to any expan-
sion of the resort rentals into resi-
dential neighborhoods on the island
and would like to propose an alter-
native solution. First, a study should
be conducted and documented on
the need for additional resort rental
facilities. Projecting the number of
additional resort rental units need-
ed would be important and an analy-
sis of the infrastructure to support
the additional units is essential in
providing a basis for sound plan-
ning. Second, if demand justifies the
need for additional rentals, the city
should recruit respectable hotels to
expand into the Fernandina Beach
area and allow growth to occur in a
managed and responsible manner in


an area zoned commercial. This
would also assure future resort
rental facilities would pay the
required bed tax consistent with
current hotel operations.
We decided to live in the city of
Fernandina when we bought here
about 20 years ago because we
thought the services and protection
by the city in a more dense com-
munity would be worth the addi-
tional tax cost compared to the unin-
corporated areas of the county. We
believed we had a covenant with the
city to respect the longstanding R1
zoning of our neighborhood, which
was plotted in 1911, and other unin-
corporated neighborhoods.
Now to our surprise we have a
rogue commission which is threat-
ening our community with com-
mercial activities. We do not under-
stand this. We believe the city should
be our protectors with zoning and
ordinances as they did in 2000 rather
than the invaders of our communi-
ty with commercial activities.
Because of high land values, homes
at the beach are sited close togeth-
er making intrusion into the neigh-
bors' homes more problematic with-
out mutual respect and longstanding
relationships with. neighbors. The
potential intrusion is exacerbated
by resort rentals and can be volatile
because weekly renters believe they
have paid plenty for their island get-
away and do not expect any con-
straints, especially by adjacent neigh-
bors who are living demanding
workday lives and not on vacation.
We understand that economic
development in the community is
vital, but more vital is that our com-
missioners have a duty- to uphold
the trust we put in them when vot-
ing them into office. They can
accomplish both ends by pursuing
further resort development in areas
zoned for commercial development
rather than proposing to rezone
long-established RI neighborhoods
to Commercial.

Short-term rental
I live in the city of Fernandina
Beach and own three rental units
in the city, including one on North
Fletcher. I choose to-rent long-term
and make more money that way in
the long run. I have had problems in
my neighborhood with illegal short-
term "renters" in the past They park
their cars illegally and bring their
unlicensed golf carts and drive them
around while drinking beer, or let
the children drive them. The
Fernandina Beach Police cannot
-stop this.
I have called and called and they
come out every time, but they have
to catch 'them in the act and them
warn them before issuing any cita-
tions. The FBPD and Code
Enforcement just do not have the
time to police these people, and I
do not have time to pick up their
trash. Based on my experience, I
think expanding the short-term
rental area is very short sighted.

Enforce parking laws
The downtown parking situation
has been in the local news for quite
some time now. It concerned me
greatly when there was renewed
talk of "parking meters." Have we
somehow lost sight of what makes
Fernandina Beach so appealing to
tourists and residents?
I believe there is a solution to
the problem. Most of the parking
downtown is free for a 3-hour
duration. Why not enforce it?
Does 3-hour parking mean anything
if it's not enforced? Do any
rules/laws?
I would guess the city police chief
needs to get behind this idea to
make it happen. Please? I'm sure
locals, tourists and, most impor-
tantly, business owners would appre-
ciate it.

and try to get out whenever

Today, though, 11 a.m. was

-..for W.lking at nhe noona
or less, was a new experience
for me. And a Monday follow-
ing a big festival weekend was
an interesting time to walk
south on the beach past The
Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.
First off I encountered a
young man; mounding up a
big pile of sand. This man was
no kid, and what he was plan-
ning was no sand castle. It
turns out that Lance Ramm
comes here every year from
his home in Minnesota and
STERfTURLEY/FORTTHE NEWS-LFADER prides himself-on creating a
d, are up and around on different sand sculpture each
lunes they call home. visit His plan, he told me,
looking at the heap of sand
and the driftwood and shells
he had'collected, was to make

creation. I told him I'd check
on my wvay back up the beach.
S T I continued south and then
headed across a dune board-
D I Iwalk inland. And here was an
amazing sight! The weather
had finally warmed up enough
SSpoy or Neuter to stir-the gopher tortoises
t from their burrows in the
dunes, and here, below me in
the san, was my first gopher
.. tortoise sighting of the season.


noon

I happily
focused my
camera on
the tortoise,
as it walked
across the
sand,
through the
vegetation. I
put my cam-
WILD era on tele-
WAYS photo and
... then noticed
something
Pat even better.
Foster- Turley This tortoise
I was watch-
ing was walking up to a bur-
row in the sand, and then
another tortoise stack its head
out of the burrow to greet it.
Two gopher tortoises! That
can only mean that spring is
indeed in the air, and even the
gopher tortoises are getting
excited. But not excited
enough, apparently. The tor-
toise I was watching shook its
head, then slowly turned
around and plodded off again
into the dunes. As I followed it
with my camera I noticed its
destination, another burrow
about 100 feet away from the
occupied burrow of its neigh-
bor. Quickly, in tortoise time,
my subject disappeared into
its hole, with a shower of sand.
swept up in its wake, as it set-
tled in its hole once again. The
other tortoise kept watch from
the opening of its own burrow,
neighbors no doubt well famil-
iar with one another for years.
One of these days these
two tortoises will link forces,
albeit briefly, or if they are
both males they will engage in
tortoise battles over the rights
to any females in their neigh-
borhood. Only at high noon, in
the heat of a spring day, are
such tortoise behaviors visible


to the chance passerby. I was
lucky to be out and about at
just the right time to catch it
Now that I know the location
of both tortoise burrows I
have another spot to check on
my jaunts down the beach and
along the dune walkways.
It was time to turn back to
trudge back north, to my wait-
ing car a few miles away. Soon
enough I came upon Lance, or
at least his signs. Back where
the Lock Ness monster was
under construction an hour or
so previous, I found no mon-
ster. Instead, I found a perfect-
ly formed sand sculpture of a
sea bird, with shells marking
an outstretched wing pattern
and a perfect piece of drift-
wood forming a neck and
beak.
As I was photographing
this new entity on the beach,
Lance saw me and came up to
chat It turns out that the tide
rushed-in before the Loch
Ness monster could take
shape, so he moved his project
a bit higher on the beach. And
then, surveying his raw mate-
rials, the loon took shape
instead. For a loon it was, that
sea bird, a memory he has
from all his days on lakes in
Minnesota.
And only at high noon
would I see such things the
gopher tortoises, the loon con-
struction project and all the
other people out on the beach
enjoying the sun of a day in
early spring., Soon enough it
will be too hot for my walks at
high noon, but now it's a time
to take advantage of, for a
whole new perspective on our
island home.

Have Your TV Rates Increased?

Want a Lower Bill? Ask About Our 2 Year Price Guarantee!*


Huge-TV bills and frequent rate increases seem to be the same old
problems facing Florida seniors and hardworking TV viewers. How
much is too much? How many channels of news, sports and re-
run movies are viewers expected to pay for? Ironically, the majority
of programming watched by TV viewers are local channels (ABC,
NBC, CBS, FOX, PAX, PBS, WB, UPN). Many residents in the
Central Florida area are complaining about the cost, but still keep
paying outrageous TV bills. Digital broadcasting is here to stay. The
question is, how can consumers get cable tv channels at the lowest
price? Thanks to improved technology, consumers have a, choice
other than local companies. Simply by changing your TV provider,
consumers can access their favorite channels and save money. Think

TV provider.

'Bunnie' finds 'love can prevail' after all


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
E vett Simmons is
grateful- and still
surprised at the
path her life has
taken.
"It hasn't all been easy, but
I've been blessed," she says.
Now an attorney in Port St.
Lucie who owns a successful
real estate company and is
now starting another business
- Simmons grew up in
Fernandina Beach in the clas-
sic economically deprived set-
ting of the times.
Born in 1957, Simmons
was the youngest of six chil-
dren, and the only sibling
born in the old Humphrey's
Memorial Hospital. The rest
were born at home.
Simmons' mother died
when she was 10, and she was
subsequently raised by her
aunt in a house on Vernon
Street.


"It wasn't easy for my
aunt," Simmons says. "As long
as I can remember, we didn't
have a vehicle. People gave us
rides. My aunt worked two
jobs, but I had a lot of love
from my father, sisters,
cousins and the United
Methodist Church."
Simmons also had the dis-
tinction of being the only
black child in her class from
the third through the fifth
grade, when integration came
to the local school system in
1965.
"As a child, you just want
to fit in," Simmons says. "The
teacher would sneak up
behind me and hit me with
the paddle in front of the
whole class. When I got to
school late, the principal said
she would send me back '
where I came from."
Simmons says she had
straight A's in eighth grade,
but somehow ended up with a
B in physical education. She


Lawyer author and
businesswoman Evett Simmons
says her hometown holds a
special place in her heart.


says she was given a 13
because "back in those days, a
black child couldn't get an
award. I had the highest GPA
in school."
She was inspired to go to
college when she was in the
eighth grade, on a trip to a
Florida Southern College in
Lakeland.
"It was my first time on a
college campus," Simmons
says. "I said, 'I'm going to this
college.' I wasn't thinking
about the money, but I was
able to get scholarships and
grants. I don't remember I
wanted to be a lawyer. I never
met a lawyer until I was in col-
lege."
When she got to college
she became an English major.
"I always felt I wasn't as good ,,
as the white students. It was-
n't until I started helping the
white students that I felt I was
good enough. I felt I was a
product of my environment. I
was not able to'look white
folks in the eye until transi-


tioning out of college,"
Simmons recalled.
"When someone was criti-
cizing me, I always wondered,
is it because of my race or my
sex?" she says. "I had so
much baggage."
When she graduated from
Florida Southern, she only
had $500 left in loans. She
then applied to Florida State
University and Mercer
College for law school. She
was accepted at Mercer first,
and sent in her $100 deposit.
She found out.later that she
was also accepted at Florida
State, her first choice, but did
not have any money left for
another deposit.
'When I went to Mercer, I
had only a bicycle," she says.
"I took a Greyhound bus to
the school and walked around
the campus looking for a place
to live." The first day, she'
found an efficiency apartment
close to campus, and lived
there for three years, paying
her way by working at the law


school library.
"I thought I didn't have the
personality to be a litigator,"
Simmons says, "so I started a
volunteer lawyers' project."
She also had her own law firm
for four years. Since then, she
has won many awards, includ-
ing induction into the
Fernandina Beach High
School Hall of Fame. She is
the only woman attorney ever
appointed by the Florida Bar
to the Judicial Qualifications
Commission, which disci-
plines judges in Florida, and
the first African American to
chair the Florida Bar's
Continuing Legal Education
Committee, among many
other distindtions.
Simmons now lives in Port
St. Lucie and is a partner and
chief diversity officer at
Ruden McClosky law firm.
She has also published a
book of poetry called Sun Up
to Sun Down, as well as a
series of children's books fea-
turing a character called
"Professor Bunnie Wise." She
has developed a website and
founded a company around
the Bunnie Wise character "to
demonstrate through print
and other media that in a
world filled with challenges
and pain, love can prevail."
Her minority-women
owned company develops

cises through various media
to "communicate values that
improve the spirit, mind and
body of those with whom our
message connects."
The "Bunnie" name came
about because when Simmons
was a baby, a relative said she
looked like a little bunny. The
name stuck until she graduat-
ed from college.
"I didn't know I was Evett
until the first grade,"
Simmons says. "When I went
to college, I was going to
become Evett, but in college I
was still Bunnie. My sorority
sisters still call me Bunnie."
Fernandina Beach, being
her hometown, still has a spe-
cial place in her heart.
"'The last time I was there,
I walked from home to the
beach, from the beach to the
docks and back," Simmons
says. "I still feel the love of
family and friends and church
and everything else there. A
lot of kids don't have that
same sense of home."
"I just thank God I had that
experience," Simmons says.
"It's not about money, it about
love. Parents don't realize it's
not always about the material
things you give kids."

Shes got GUTS


-You can get SAME DAY DELIVERY of the
leader every week, delivered by the US Postal Service,
home or business. See page 2A for more details.


HEATHER. PERRY
News-Leader
As founder and presi-
dent of World on a
String, Deb Cottle
is out to motivate
people.
"We may think we're
positive most of the time but
we really let our negative
thought patterns control our
experiences without realizing
that's happening," said
Cottle.
She created the GUTS for-
mula to help others reach for
the stars. The acronym stands
for gain knowledge, use posi-
tive affirmation, train your
thoughts and set realistic
goals.
"I came up with GUTS
many years ago as a way to
instruct, educate and empow-
er people to do something on
a daily basis that is easy and
impactful, and could literally
change their lives," said
Cottle. "It's something I had
been practicing without
knowing it was a formula.
These were steps that I per-
sonally took on a daily basis
to make my life easier, and I
wanted to share them with
others."
The tools in Cottle's arse-
nal include inspirational semi-
nars, workshops, motivational
products and public speaking
engagements.
She recently released a
CD with singer songwriter
Rubyanna called Music and
Motivation: Songs to Lift the
Spirit.
Seven of Rubyanna'si
inspiring original songs are
preceded by Cottle's words of
motivation and encourage-
ment. The CD also relates the
unique story behind their
serendipitous meeting.
Born and raised in
Chicago where she began
her career as an account
executive with Telemation,
Cottle moved with her son
Connor and husband Stan
to his hometown of"
Fernandina Beach, where
she is very active in the com-
munity.
"After 13 years of living on
Amelia Island, I think I've
found my groove. I've been
president of the Sunrise
Rotary Club, board member
of the Chamber and YMCA,
mentored two students for
Take Stock in Children, and
chaired many fundraising


It is up to each of us to create
innovative ways to live more
enriching lives. I am passionate
about helping others find the
GUTS to reach their fullest
potential.'


events for non-profits on the
island," she said.
Cottle is currently in pro-
duction on a video series
called "Women with Guts," to
help women achieve success
despite upbringing or other
negative influences by learin-
ing from successful women
who have risen above these
drawbacks.
Cottle has a full schedule ,
of local appearances for the
month of April, including
three book signing for
Success Simplified, the
anthology in which she is fea-
tured.
Dr. Stephen David Wright,
president of the International
Speakers network and Insight
Publishing, conducted inter-
views with 24 successful peo-
pie including best-selling
author Dr. Stephen Covey and

Grupr sean reopens
The recreational harvest of shallow-water

The Gulf recreational shallow-water
group-er fishery (gag, black, red, yellowfin,
scamp, yellowmouth, rock hind and red.
hind) has been closed since Feb. 1 to protect
gag grouper, often found and caught with the
other grouper species. This two-month clo-
sure during Gulf grouper spawning season
helps reduce overfishing of gag grouper and
rebuild its populations so that larger annual


harvests may be possible in the future.

tion Commission also reminds fishermen
that the recreational and commercial harvest
of shallow-water groupers (including gag,
black grouper, red grouper, scamp, red hind,
rock hind, coney, graysby, yellowfin grouper,
yellowmouth grouper, and tiger grouper)
remains closed until May 1 in all Atlantic

Golf revised one of its rules last
week so that players who lean of
a violation after they sign their
"-- cards can be penalized without
being disqualified. For example, Padraig
Hanington was disqualified alter opening with a 65
in the Abu Dhabi Championship when a slow-
motion replay on high-definition television revealed
that his ball moved ever so slightly after he
replaced his marker. Hanington knew the rule, but
did not realize it had moved. It should have been a
two-shot penalty, but because it was discovered
after the round, he was disqualified for signing an
incorrect card. Under the new change, Harrington
would have had two shots added to his score and
could resume playing the tournament.


One of the easiest ways for the recreational golfer to lose distance on his shots is the
old "scoop" that most of us are familiar with. Scooping occurs when we cock the wrist
& on the downswing instead of keeping it straight through impact. So, whenever your
U wrists are cocked when you hit the ball, the hands are behind the ball at impact and
this adds loft to your club. Also, the biggest problem in getting to the most powerful
C'O hitting position is that we never shift our weight properly during the swing. If you keep
all of your weight on the left side of the body, you have to hit early on the downswing and the scoop-
ing effect takes place. Make sure that on the backswing, the shift of weight moves from the left to
right side in order to get your hands through the ball properly at impact.

Writer's block


People often asked me about
"writer's block." Blocks are not
limited to writers. It happens to all of
us. Blocks come in all sizes and
shapes. It can be digestive issues. It
can be a traffic jam. It can be making
that telephone call or writing that let-
ter that you just keep putting off. We
all know the excuses. Everything
from the dog ate my homework to
more imaginative and elaborate
white lies. Folks that follow my
weekly column often ask if I am ever
paralyzed with the dreaded "writer's
block."
Writer's block is a very real
thing. It can be paralyzing. Writers
may stare at their hands poised over
a computer keyboard or at the pen

appointment. Why do you think we
get those postcards in the mail or
calls from your dentist's office? They
know you need some urging.
So in response to writer's block
questions, I remind my questioners
that it is not a rare disease that
attacks only those who write.
For this writer being blocked is
not an option. Writing a weekly col-
umn means constant deadlines.

Hi everyone, my name is
Stuart. I am one of the special
needs kitties at Cats Angels.
Just ask anyone here and
they will tell ya I am one fun-
loving fellow. I do have a cou-
ple of health issues. It seems
that I was born without com-
plete eyelids. Dr. Jen Towles
has been kind enough to help
me with this and now I see
pretty well. The second thing
is my ticker. I have a slight
heart murmur that may need
medication as I get older, but
other'than that I am one cool
cat. I love to play with feather
toys and toys that have flash-
ing lights. I must admit that I
am one of the most popular
kitties with the volunteers.
They always take time to play
with me, bring me new toys
and make sure I have my
favorite bed. I would love to
make your home my home.
Just give Cats Angels a call at
321-2267 and ask about me.

care of kitties like Stuart and
the other felines at the Cats

Osprey Village wins award


Osprey Village, an Amelia
Island-based retirement com-
munity, has announced that
the community's C.L.I.M.B.
program has won the Assisted
living Federation of America's
(ALFA) 2011 Best of the Best
Award in the category of
"Resident Health & Wellness.'"
The program took home
top honors in one of the com-
petition's most competitive cat-
egories. C.L.I.M:B., which
stands for Confidence,
Longevity, Independence,
Mobility and Balance, is an evi-
dence-based lower body
strength training program
designed to help older adults
age successfully in place.
"We are committed to pro-
gramming that helps our resi-
dents maintain their long-term
health and happiness in the
comfort of their own home,"
said Matt Younger, executive


director of Osprey Village.
"C.LI.M.B'is unique because
of its reliance on preventive
exercises and non-clinical inter-
ventions to reduce the likeli-
hood of negative health events
which may lead to a loss of
independence."
Lower body strength is
vitally important because it is
a key determinant of mobility,
which allows older adults to
perform activities of daily living
such as bathing, dressing and
getting in and out of bed with-
out the help of a caregiver.
Research suggests that
strength-training exercises
also improve balance, helping
older adults reduce their
chance of falling, which may
lead to disability, hospitaliza-
tion and other negative com-
plications.
ALFA's Fifth Annual Best
of the Best Award has expand-


ed from previous years. Only
eight winners were selected
from 140 submissions, a
record number for the com-
petition. Also for the first time,
allied members, members of
ALFA who do not manage or
operate a senior living resi-
dence, were eligible to enter
the competition.
"We have the honor to
spread the good news about
remarkable resident-centered
programs fulfilling every
aspect of senior-living opera-
tions, from wellness services to
staff development," said Rick
Grimes, president and CEO of
ALFA "All of this year's entries
speak to the high standard of
innovation and professional-
ism among our members and
demonstrate their resource-
fulness and ingenuity."
