must cut expenses, raise revenues


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


Fernandina Beach Commissioners
will have tough decisions to make in
coming months to cut expenses and
raise revenues to cope with a city
budget deficit.
Significant cuts would have to be
made to the city's 2011-12 budget or
significant revenues raised to avoid
using $2.2 million of the city's reserves
to balance the budget, according to
City Manager Michael Czymbor.
This is at least partially due to a
drop in total taxable,property values,
which according to a letter from the
Nassau County Property Appraiser's
Office have dropped another 9 per-
cent, Czymbor said.
Commissioners will also consider
new measures to raise revenues, such
as installing a paid-parking program in


the city.
Czymbor told commissioners at
the first budget workshop of the year
Monday that an auditor recommend-
ed the city should have a reserve of at
least 25 percent, which comes to about
$4 million. A projected budget reserve
for 2012, however, only came to about
$1.6 million, according to Czymbor.
Czymbor said that because city
operational costs are increasing,
expenditures will have to be
decreased.
After meetings with city directors
and the finance department, Czymbor
said he came up with a number of
ways to increase revenue and reduce
costs. Some ways to increase revenue
internally included putting more funds
from the sewer/water enterprise fund
into the general fund, and money from
various upcoming grants. An increase
in the property tax rate would bring in


I propose we look at this reasonably,
rationally, logically and feasibly.'
CITY MANAGER MICHAEL CZYMBOR


$164,000 for every tenth of a mill, and
timber sales from the felling of trees
on city land could bring in up to
$100,000, he said. A 1 percent increase
in the electrical franchise fee was also
suggested, as well as the possible sale
of city land.
Some cuts that may prove to be
controversial include a personnel
.reduction and elimination of a cost of
living raise for city employees.
Czymbor said the employees could
also be asked to pay for their own


training costs.
Other suggestions included not
retaining the lobbying services of local
attorney Buddy Jacobs, at least for the
upcoming fiscal year, at a savings of
$60,000. A three-year pledge payment
for the new Council on Aging building
could also be held back, saving
$75,000, and updating the computer
security system could be delayed.
Czymbor also suggested having
downtown businesses, rather than the
city, pay for holiday fireworks displays.


A $50,000 payment to the county for
library services could also be cut, as
well as city grants to local nonprofit
groups for a savings of $50,000.
Czymbor said he had met with the
three city employee unions to discuss
reductions in cost-of-living raises.
"I propose we look at (these reduc-
tions) reasonably, rationally, logically
and feasibly and see if there is any
interest (in implementing them),"
Czymbor said.
He said another possible way to
raise revenues would be to install paid
parking. Commissioners, he said,
should look at a modified plan that
does not involve the expense of park-
ing kiosks, but rather parking passes
and car stickers. Visitors would be
charged to park in the city, he said,
while residents would park anywhere

City might cut



lobbyist's pay

ANGELA DAUGHTRY -
News-Leader ,


City Manager Michael Czymbor
suggested during an initial budget
meeting on Monday that city commis-
sioners should consider eliminating
attorney/lobbyist Buddy Jacobs' serv-
ices, along with many other cuts, to
make up for a budget shortfall.
Commissioners last week had no
questions or discussion about a sum-
mary by Jacobs on his latest efforts in
Tallahassee and Washington, D.C.
Jacobs of Jacobs & Associates was
hired by both the city and Nassau
County in 2008 to act as lobbyist in
order to procure ..,,,siA i- ii. gi *litns
and financing for local projects.'
The city and county have since been
splitting his annual fee qf $150,000, or
$6,250 each per month, plus expenses.
Jacobs' contract was renewed last
October.
But Nassau County Commissioners
have recently been undecided on
whether to renew Jacobs' contract or
keep him on with a 10 percent pay
reduction.
Jacobs told city commissioners June
21 that he, along with State Rep. Janet
Adkins, State Sen. Steve Wise, U.S.
Congressman Ander Crenshaw, U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson and others had been
following several dozen bills of local
interest coming through the state
Legislature.,
Jacobs said the number of legisla-
tive bills of interest to the city could be
narrowed down to 83 out of 2,186, and
of those 28 had passed.
Jacobs said he had been following
bills regarding tourist development
taxes, affordable housing, growth man-
agement and term limits on city and
county commissioners, as well as bills
on the homestead exemption, a renew-

Some of the bills that passed that
would be of local interest, according to
Jacobs, were HB 224 regarding local
government accountability and trans-
parenc in the budgeting process; HB
287 regarding economic development
opportunities for local governments;
HB 399, which requires seaports to
have a strategic plan; HB 767 regard-

City 'subsidizing

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
are raising again concerns about
whether city residents are paying an
unfair share of county taxes.
Local city resident Paul Booton has
told city and county commissioners
the county could raise its property tax
rate to make the tax burden for city
residents more equitable.
Booton, a retired Army lieutenant
colonel, presented his findings at a


.Joint Local Planning Agency meeting
of city and county commissioners and
again before the city commission ear-
lier this month.
According to Booton, areas of
Amelia Island outside the city are cov-
ered by both city and county public
safety services, and city residents are
paying for county services they don't
want or need.

Booton said adding 80 per-

other services to its municipal

part of the county general fund
would address the problem.
T'he county could pay for
this, he said, with a property
tax increase of only 1.8 mills.
This, he said, would result in a
decrease of $127 a year on a
$100,000 house for city resi-
dents, and.an increase of $45 a
year on a $100,000 house for
county residents.

the towns of Hilliard and
Callahan might have an inter-
est in Booton's proposal. But
Booton said those towns were
in the opposite position from
Fernandina Beach because
they actually pay nothing for
those services.
. "They're getting the serv-
ices for free, and (city resi-
dents) are paying for services
wve don't use," Booton said.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said that if city commissioners
want to pursue a new tak struc-
ture, theywould have to pass a
resolution and send a certified
letter to county officials. She
also noted there have been sim-
ilar cases in the past.
"I don't want it to be looked
at as an adversarial thing," said
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter.
"(But) we're entitled to relief on
our (tax) bill for services we're
not getting. It's clear to me
we're paying too much and that

(Booton) is using comes from
the county.... It's kind of hard
to look at the numbers and not
sec a disconnect.We're saying

dents need relief from what
appears to be double taxation,
or at least paying for services

Steger said the next step
would be for City Manager
Michael Czymbor and Bach to
begin a dialogue with county
officials and "put this on the
front burner."

on information systems. He
was formerly an instructor of

County Attorney David A.
Hallman pointed out that the
commission generally referred
similar issues to the Planning
and Zoning Board. If that board
decided the containers fell
under Code Enforcement, he
said, it could refer the issue to
that board.
"I think the Planning and
Zoning Board ... would be the
place to start," Johnson said.
The commission instruct-
ed County Manager Ted Selby
to bring the issue before the
Planning and Zoning Board at
a future time.

for free. A large percentage of
those revenues, he said, could
go for the city's obligation for
beach renourishment.
Commissioner Eric Childers
noted that overnight guests
who stay in motels would still
get free parking.
"I think it's necessary,"
Childers said. "I thinkwe need
to address it now. It should have
been addressed a long time
ago. It's a logical alternative to
a tax increase. Our city is
expensive to run and it's not
going to get any cheaper."
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter
noted visitors come to town to
use the city's clean beaches but
pay nothing to do so. "They
should pay for the continuation
of our beautiful beaches,"
Poynter said. "We should ask
other people who aren't paying
any taxes to pay for our beach-
es ... it should not be on the
backs of the same 12,000 peo-
ple who live in this town."
Commissioner Arlene

city needed help to keep up the
beaches, but said she would
need to understand how paid
parking would work.

Proposed cuts
Some possible cuts to balance the 2011-12 city budget:
* Garage fuel cost reductions $22,750
* Reduce travel/training $12,809
* Eliminate lobbyist $60,000
* Defer Council on Aging payment $75,000
* Information technology cuts $40,150
* Human resources cuts $13,041
* Eliminate COLA pay raises $170,319
* Eliminate some streets equipment $50,000
* Eliminate library payment to county $51,667
* Eliminate city grants to nonprofits $50,000


made some mild objections to
the paid-parking proposal, said
in the end that "there's no rea-
son why we shouldn't explore
this."
"When you drive over the
bridge toTybee Island (Ga.), (a
sign) says there is no free park-
ing," said Childers. "People
don't make a distinction based
on whether beaches are free or
not."
Filkoff noted she was con-
cerned about potential cuts
affecting the city's Forward
Fernandina strategic plan for
improvements that has been
discussed over the past year.
Commissioners recently gave
tentative approval to finance
the project of downtown revi-
talization for up to $8-10 mil-
lion.
Commissioners also briefly


discussed furloughs for city
employees, cutting trees
around Simmons Road and the
possibility of closing city offices
at intervals to save on costs.
Childers also suggested rais-
ing parks and recreation and
water/sewer fees for non-resi-
dents.
Czymbor told commission-
ers they would need to take the
next few weeks to consider the
suggested cuts and expendi-
tures before a revised proposed
budget comes out July 30.
Czymbor said another budg-
et discussion would be placed
on the July 5 city commission
meeting agenda.
Additional workshops and
public hearings would be
scheduled before the budget
takes effect Oct. 1.

A new Amelia Island-based
business is seeking to
become a worldwide program
to provide "positive life skills
and self-help information" to
teenagers via the web.
In Search of Me Cafr,
developed by Stan Cottle, is a
"comprehensive, interactive,

developed to help today's
teens address problems, com-
municate thoughts and ideas
in a like-minded social net-
work and seek outside help in
finding solutions."
According to a flyer pro-
moting the website, "At In

It could be another of th6se
perfect lampoons, when an
aghastJon Stewart stares into
the television camera.
Stewart, the popular come-
dian and satirist, will play a
political sound bite that is con-
tradictory or humorous. And
then he'll ridicule it, as an arm-
chair funny man.
Some new material for
'Stewart has been inadver-
tently written in Nassau
County- although this is the
Nassau County in Florida, not
in New York (Stewart is from
New York and has orchestrat-
ed his fame there).
This script comes from
John Crawford, Nassau
County clerk, and is directed
at county commissioners -
but also applies to other taxing
authorities.
Here goes (this is
Crawford talking): "You all
have heard my advice to 'get
out of debt, stay out of debt
and pay as you go'... Please be
advised, creating new debt in
this present fiscal environment
could be disastrous for present
and future taxpayers of Nassau
County. I view it, with little
room for exceptions, as unac-
ceptable in this present fiscal
climate.
"In Nassau County, unem-
ployment is hovering at near-
ly 11 percent and property val-
uations (the source of ad
valorem tax revenues) have
declined precipitously over the
past several years. From my
view as chief financial officer,
debt avoidance is the highest
priority.
"In order to meet the goal
of debt avoidance, I recom-
mend that no major building
projects be added to the capi-
tal improvement plan or oth-
erwise authorized unless relat-
ed to a severe public safety
deficiency."
Then Stewart will play a fol-
low-up, contradictory video
clip...This comes .irom
Fernandina Beach city com-
missioners, who want to bor-
row nearly $10 million to
undertake several pet projects
that are hardly "urgent" or for
the public good.
"Hmmm" would be
Stewart's response. And the
audience would laugh.
Although Crawford has no
jurisdiction over the city's
operations, the timing of his
message amid the proposed
projects of the city is humor-
ous at least. But something
about this is not funny.

post office building, opening
Alachua Street at the river,
tinkering with the waterfront)
is to invigorate the economy.
However, hasn't this proven
ineffective on a grander
scale?
The $700 billion handed
out in federal stimulus funds is
proof that the government
cannot and does not need to
stimulate the economy.
Government officials just need
to get out of the way by reduc-
ing regulations, costs, taxes,
etc. These are the kind of
sound bites we would like to
hear.

WEDNESDAY. JUNE 29.2011 BUSINESS News-Leader


Successful in a man's world


.T.,

HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
"I love my customers and appreciate each person who
has called," says general contractor Charlee Fox of
Beautiful Custom Homes, Inc.


HEATHER. PERRY
News Leader

Always a tomboy growing
up, Charlee Fox declined her
mother's suggestion that she
follow in her footsteps and open
a beauty shop, preferring
instead to go into the construc-
tion industry.
"I did not see any substantial
blocks that would stand in my
way so I went for it," says the
female general contractor.
Growing up watching self-
employed parents instilled a
sound work ethic in Fox.
"I watched them in their
businesses and learned the
foundation that if you're going
to make any money, you've
got to get up early in the morn-
ing and make it happen," Fox
said.
"After working 10 years in
the home building industry, I
was blessed to. officially start
Beautiful Custom Homes, Inc.
in 2005," she added.
"This may sound corny, but
after having such a difficult time
over the past few years eco-
nomically, my favorite thing now
about being a contractor is that
I thoroughly enjoy meeting the
people of Fernandina Beach. It
is a daily blessing to have new


customers call and hire me -
and for me to actually get to
work on the island. I have met
some wonderful people as
opposed to having to go to
Jacksonville every day."
She derives a great deal of
satisfaction from having her
clients tell her; "I love it!" when
she completes a job.
Fox credits her "very hard-
working, successful father" with
giving her the tools for success.
"He showed us how to
achieve our goals. You must be
hardworking and honest. His
company is 55 years old and is
still successful," Fox said.
Although she has applied
her dad's teachings in her
career as a female contractor,
Fox has seen her share of dis-
crimination.
Consider a recent situation:
"I was called to look at a his-
toric house that has settled and
caused damage. The piers have
'slightly sunken and a main
beam has cracked. There were
two men who had only slight
experience in the construction
field and myself, along with the
(male) owner. The three men
stood there and talked for at
least 20 minutes and each gave
their opinions. Meanwhile, I am
a few feet away working on


finishing a punch-list, just lis-
tening. They did not ask my
opinion."
It's not as if Fox doesn't have
the required experience to voice
her opinion. With an associate's
degree in construction man-
agement and a Bachelor's
Degree in business administra-
tion, she is also a Certified Load
Design Technician, a Certified
Iead Renovator and a Certified
Wind Load Technician.
In addition to her profes-
sional credentials, she has also
received a significant amount
of on the job training.
"I 1." ;:1:ill in the beginning
when I was only an office man-
ager," she said. "I had a really
great boss that didn't mind my
questions. He even taught me to
scale draft, which has been a
great help to me."
Fox says E.B. Walter has no
idea just how much he inspired
her by his example.
With drive, determination
and an ability to downplay the
discrimination she encountered
along the way, the ambitious
woman moved up in the field
to superintendent before start-
ing her own company.
As president of Beautiful
Custom Homes, Inc., Fox offers
a wide range of services, includ-


ing all types of home repair and
construction work, renovations,
historical renovations, painting,
permitting help and code viola-
tions resolutions.
One unusual facet of her
business is the opportunity for
homeowners to save money by
doing some of the "sweat equi-
ty" work.
"We also offer plumbing,
electrical, house cleaning,
organizing, project manage-
ment, land development assis-
tance, landscaping, concrete,
drywall and screen enclosures."
And yes, she is actually out
there swinging a hammer on
the job site.
"I've been working on the
island less than one year but I
have a desire to serve our com-
munity. My passion is reaching
out to our elders and especially
our military families."
Fox hopes the company
expands to the point were she
could begin a nonprofit to assist
those two groups.
Beautiful Custom Homes,
Inc. is located at 95501 Sonoma
Drive in Fernandina Beach.
Business hours are 7 a.m. to 7
. p.m. Monday through Saturday.

WEDNESDAY. JUNE 29 2011/NEWS-LEADER


OPINION


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


'Atravesty'
I am appalled by Mike Thompson's piece in
today's paper ("Save our libraries, fire the librar-
ians," June 24), but I am less appalled than I am
at the News-Leader for printing what amounts to
a rather mean-spirited personal attack on our
librarians.
Yes, I know, it masquerades as an expose of
the far-left ALA, but you and I know that's not
how it's going to be read. Clearly when Mr.
Thompson's previous attack on the library, sup-
ported by counting patrons and suggesting a
TV makeover for the library, didn't produce the
desired results, he resorted to the type of demo-
nizing that's become all too commori today. And
as he counted patrons, he now counts books for
and against what he believes.
To call Dawn Bostwick and Janet Loveless
"radical militants" is a travesty. I firmly believe in
freedom of speech but two-thirds of a page devot-
ed to ranting is a bit much.
Evelyn McDonald
Fernandina Beach

Marbles
Mr. (Mike) Thompson has some strong opin-
ions regarding our library ("Save our libraries,'
fire the librarians," June 24). I also have my opin-
ions. So I would like to invite Mr. Thompson to
a game of marbles on the little patch of grass out-
side the library downtown. There we can discuss
the library situation. I'll bring all the marbles
because I think Mr. Thompson has lost his.
John P. Bertsch
Fernandina Beach

'Ive and letlive'
I found Mike Thompson's viewpoint ("Save
our libraries, fire the librarians," June 24) to be
totally offensive. It seems he used this article to
voice his own bigoted, homophobic, conservative
and out of touch with reality opinions rather
than a true address to the new library. With this
said, I would still fight for his rights to voice his
opinions. However, he evidently does not believe
in giving the same rights to others.
With all the recent bullying suicides across
our country, I am glad to hear that there are
many books on homosexuality in our library.
We need to educate Americans and especially
Nassau County on the subject of homosexuality.
It all basically comes down to whether you
believe being gay is a choice or if you are born
that way. I believe you are born gay. Why would
any one in their right mind consciously choose
to be gay and choose to have a life of hell on
Earth, a life where you do not have the same
rights as others? A life of persecution and tor-
ment, sometimes even death because someone
out there took it upon themselves to decide that
you don't have a right to even live becauseyou
are gay. These books should also be ihe1ic- to
give courage and guidance so a gay person can


realize that he or she is not alone and that their
life is worth living.
I'm sure my space is limited, although you
were allowed nearly an entire page to voice your
opinion and you certainly ranted on. There were
too many things in your article to counter, but I'm
going to address a few. First of all, I am sure the
ALA is not fighting for children's access to
Internet porn. They are fighting against the fil-
ters. Internet filters filter out more than just
pornography; for example, when using the FSCJ
library, while trying to write a paper on breast
cancer, I could not get any information because
the word "breast" was blocking everything.
Second, where do you get off calling the A!A
fraudulent in their quest to make sure during
"Banned Books Week" that all opinions have a
right to be expressed? Our libraries are not push-
ing or promoting homosexuality, they are just not
protesting or calling homosexuals perverse or
defiant like you are. You cannot turn someone
gay just because they get information about
being gay or gay lifestyles, just as you can't
"straighten out "a gay" person.
For the rest of those "98 percent who don't
embrace same-sex lovers," no one says you have
to, but it is not your place to judge. Just live and
let live.
It sounds to me, Mr. Mike Thompson, as if
you are the one who "arrogantly wants to control
our and our kids' minds and bodies." Sounds
like you need some education. Hey, I have an
idea, why don't you visit the library?
Julie A. Crews
Fernandina Beach

Justlddding?
The June 24 letter to the editor by Mike
Thompson on why libraries should stay but our
local librarians must go is a hoot, a lampoon of
reasoned discourse, a satire. He doesn't really
mean what he says.
You doubt he satirizes? M.T. revels in using
"loaded" adman language: "colluded" for worked,
"plotted" for developed, "peddled" for advised,
"swankier new digs" for a roof that doesn't leak.
Oh, and a "musty" Dewey Decimal System,
although the latest online WebDewey update
came out two months ago. So much for "musty."
You doubt he satirizes? Consider M:T.'s objec-
tion to "slanted book shelves." Picture all the
books slip-sliding to the floor, leaving the shelves
... well, empty.
But he doesn't really want that. He just wants
shelves filled exclusively with books of ideas
and information that are already common coin in
our county. No new ideas welcome.
You doubt M.T. is joshing? As past chair of the
Florida Conservative Union, he wrote an article
for Human Events: Leading Conservative Media
Since 1944, entitled "Declaration of Expulsion: A
Modest Proposal." He begins by saying his is a
"modest proposal (a la Swift's satiric story of
Sthe same name)." Jonathan Swift's "modest pro-
Sposal" of1729 suggested the poor in Ireland eat


their young to avoid starvation. (No, Swift was-
n't serious.) M.T's proposal was to toss 12 states
from the U.S.A., including 10 of the original 13!
So, no, I don't think M.T was serious either. He
exaggerates.
My conclusion? M.T.'s letter is saying, in
effect, "Oh, no! Our libraries and librarians pro-
vide books with new ideas and information!" He
writes tongue in cheek, as if fresh ideas and
viewpoints were a bad thing.
Well, either that or he offers m.t. words.
Joani Selement
Amelia Island

Pyrmania
I would like to begin this with a quote from a
book quite well known to historians:
"In economics he undermines the states until
the social enterprises which have become unprof-
itable are taken from the state and subjected to
his financial control.
"In the political field he refuses the state the
means for its self-preservation, destroys the foun-
dations of all national self-maintenance and
defense, destroys faith in the leadership, scoffs
at its history and past, and drags everything that
is truly great into the gutter. Culturally, he con-
taminates art, literature, the theater, makes a
mockery of natural feeling, overthrows all con-
cepts of beauty and sublimity, of the noble and
the good, and instead drags men down into the
sphere of his own base nature.
"Religion is ridiculed, ethics and.morality rep-
resented as outmoded, until the last props of a
nation in its struggle for existence in this world
have fallen."
This particular publication is what first came
to mind when I read Mike Thompson's rant
about libraries/librarians ("Save our libraries,
fire the librarians," June 24).


Mike has some good points. There should be
copies of the texts of all religions available to the
public from the local library. In fact, they are. Any
book in the library system may be ordered for a
nominal fee if it is not on the shelf at the local
branch. Knowing this, I have never had any dif-
ficulty borrowing books that weren't immedi-
ately available on the shelf. That said, a copy of
the Torah would be a wonderful addition to our
library. Perhaps a local synagogue would be
interested in providing one?
A full representation of the Gnostic Gospels
would also be nice, though I don't know how
often they would be perused. Books of Muslim
traditions and faith will naturally be accessed in
these confusing times. People want information
about something that has never really touched
their lives before. To complain about the access
of such information is confusing to me in the con-
text of the article. Do we have too much or not
enough information about other beliefs and
lifestyles? As to the availability or lack thereof
regarding some books in the library, rather than
stomping and huffing about what isn't there,
perhaps we should simply donate books we
would like to see on the shelves.
Mr. Thompson suggests a prairie fire be lit.
. My point of view is that so many fires have been
started that the pyromaniacs are no longer visi-
ble through the smoke they have created, though
their shouts are still heard. In their panic of the
flames, they have threatened many lives. Maybe
it's time to find the source of the fire igno-
rance and fear and embrace the cleansing rains
- kindness and understanding.
As to the origin of the quote above? It's from
Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler.
In sincere hope of peaceful understanding
and tolerance in the future,

SVIEWPOINT/CHARLES BENEFIELD/FERNANDINA BEACH


Put city

The recent headline, "City may bor-
row without voters' OK" (une 17)
was not an unexpected surprise since
it was coming from the city's attor-
ney and she/he is paid to render a legal, not a
right or wrong, opinion. What was a surprise
was the seemingly gleeful response of all city
commissioners quoted in the article.
The city commissioners and manager
should be reminded that they are serving at
the pleasure of the voters. It is the voters/tax-
payers that should be making all decisions on
debt and spending on projects of the magni-
tude outlined in the News-Leader article.
My experience would lead me to believe
that debt just to fulfill a wish list is not justified
under any circumstance. The action suggested
by the headline statement is not a prudent use
of the funding mechanisms available to the city
even if it were voter-approved. In these eco-
nomic times the city government should not
add long-term debt other than for some emer-
gency or necessary capital expenditure
approved by the taxpayers and certainly not
for items from a wish list. Even if one accepted
,that the wish list was all needed projects, the
response by the.commissioners and city man-
ager leads me to believe that our city leaders
are not paying attention to the economy and
the mood of the voters and taxpayers when it
comes to spending and debt.
In addition, one of the wish list items, the
post office, is a great old building maybe wor-
thy of being saved but it is hard for me to
understand the city government function of
historical building salvation and preservation.
If the city needs a new building, for whatever
purpose, it should come about in the city's nor-
mal planning and budget cycles. A city the size

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


listen to the people
I am outraged that the city com-
mission is going to obligate the citizens
of Fernandina Beach for as much as
$10 million to fund a smorgasbord of'
projects, many of them controversial,
in the current economic climate ("City
may borrowwithout voters' OK," June
17). .
All levels of government, as well
as individuals, are experiencing hard
economic times. Have any of our local
leaders looked at the unemployment
rate or the national debt lately? They
have to be aware of the difficulties.the
state, county and the city are facing in
balancing budgets.
Despite these financial problems,
our elected leaders and their out-of-
touch advisors (city manager, city
attorney- and the Community
Development Department staff) seem
determined to fund projects such as
the library and the post office with-
out a vote. And do we really need
Alachua Street cut through to Front
Street? It looks like the city leader-
ship is about to climb on the fast-track
to early retirement from public service.
I strongly urge the city commis-
sion to place the bond issue and a pri-
oritized list of the proposed projects on
the November ballot for an up or down
vote. Those favoring either side would
then have several months to make
their cases.
Above all, I urge the city commis-
sion to listen to the people it works
every time.

Payattention
There have been community-iden-
tified goals for the downtown area in
the past, The question is, are these
goals still valid today given the cur-
rent economic downturn? Until July
5, the city is taking comment on its
current "strategic plan," which will
address downtown revitalization.
In this plan, there is an idea afoot to
reconstitute and expand the CRA
(Community Redevelopment Agency)
for the downtown neighborhoods. This
is proposed as a way to revitalize the
downtown under the Forward
Fernandina plan. You may or may not
remember how several years ago, the
north and south downtown neighbor-
hoods fought against our houses being
included in the current CRA. At that
time the city had "blighted" the neigh-
borhood so that our ret-idential prop-
erties could be included in the CRA.
Our 'neighborhoods have been in
existence for 50-plus years. During
that time, the city has not addressed
the "blight" which has been caused
by their continual inaction regarding
downtown infrastructure storm
drainage, sidewalks and streetlights. A
lack of these three things allowed the
city to label our area as "blighted" sev-
eral years ago an area has to be
"blighted" to be incorporated into the
CRA.
The current idea is to borrow at
least $8 million. Then, there are five
areas that the strategic plan wants to
focus on. But is there a strategy that
earmarks the needs of our neighbor-
hood, or are our tax dollars the "cash
cow" for the waterfront develop-
ment/and the post office revitaliza-
tion?
Question: how can we be assured
that CRA monies will be spent in our
neighborhoods and'NOT go to the
downtown commercial development?
Given the past track record, is there a
vehicle of accountability in the new
strategic plan that will benefit the
downtown residences?
If the CRA does expand, will city
services deteriorate because there are
less monies going into the general
fund? Will the taxes in the city then


need to be increased to continue the
current level of services we get from
the city? The CRA isolates tax dollars
and requires them to be spent within
only the CRA area so the general fund-
ing could find itself lacking.
Also according to the "strategic
plan," utility franchise fees will be
increased as one means of additional
funding so that the city can reach its
revitalization goals. This is a sure sce-
nario that household utility bills will go
up in .the future. Are you willing to
absorb even an incremental rate
increase?
In other communities, emiftent
domain has been exercised very reck-
lessly within CRA areas. There are
and can be no assurances that emi-
nent domain will not be exercised in
the future.to.convertdowntown prop-
erty and residences into private devel-
opment concerns. Promises that are
made by our current commission will
not hold water in the future because
no commission can tie the hands of
any future commission.
Assurances that eminent domain
will never happen here are weak at
best. What if times in the future
become more financially difficult, say
15 to 20 years down the road, and the
city finds itself faced with a major rev-
enue shortfall? Other communities
have used eminent domain and then
"given" property to developers who
through their redevelopment efforts
can generate more tax revenue than
single-family neighborhood homes do.
Do a little research and you will find
that this is:very true. Could our prop-
. erties be at risk in the future?
I urge my fellow neighbors to read
the city's strategic plan and make writ-
ten comments before July 5. Become
educated on how this plan could affect
you. Ask yourself- how much money
can our city afford to borrow in this
day and age?
There will be a town hall meeting
shortly after the city tabulates the July
5 citizen responses. Attendance at that
meeting, and also the .commission
meeting when the plan is discussed for
adoption, will let the city know where
our sentiments lie. Democracy in
action.

Revenue opportunity
In an attempt to raise revenue for
the city revitalization, thus sparing the
taxpayers, try placing some cruisers in
the Lakewood neighborhood.
Considering Canterbury, Inverness
and Sussex are regularly utilized as
drag-strip-style shortcuts from A1A to
Will Hardee with little regard for speed
limits or stop signs, it shouldn't take
long to raise enough funds to revital-
ize anything you want to. They can
start with the driver who nearly rear-
ended me while I was trying to pull
into my driveway this morning.

Lighting expenditures
As a seven-year resident near the
Thomas J. Shave Bridge leading onto
Amelia Island, I would like to make a
suggestion to the committee in charge
of lighting expenditure.
For those of us who often traverse
the area past Amelia Parkway toward
SSadler Road to shop at the local con-
venience stores or to head home, per-
haps on foot or on bike, there appears
to be a need for additional lighting to
indicate which way the road travels.
For 300 yards before and 300 yards
after Midway Drive, as drivers sling-
shot off the bridge, there is a gap along
the east side (the only side for pedes-
trians and bicyclists) in lighting.
I believe some of our taxpayer
money should be focused in the area


JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILYTRIBUNE


of making that area, which is dark and
dangerous (considering there is a
water estuary on one side and heavy
traffic on the other), reflect a consis-
tency in lighting. Especially if one is on
Foot or on bicycle as many of us
are or have been.
Let's consider improving that area,
reducing the speed and adding some
safety for all of us. Consistent light-
ing to indicate an entrance from a high-
way to a habitation should be a focus
for everyone's safety.
It's dark along that left-hand swing
at night, for drivers, bikers and walk-
ers. I suggest we invest in some light-
ing there.

Smoke
What is being done about this
smoke crisis? Schools have been
closed, young children and seniors
can't venture outdoors, roads have
been closed so the U.S. sends millions
to depressed countries overseas. So
Mr. President, what are you going to
do to help stop these fires and bring us
back to a safe and healthy environ-
ment?
William Caiazzo

Balanced budget
amendment
Members of Congress supporting
an amendment to the U.S. Constitution
that requires the federal budget to be
balanced each year are being reckless
with our economic future. Clearly, the
federal deficit must be addressed, but
such an amendment is the wrong
method.
A balanced budget amendment
requires federal spending in any year
to be offset by revenues collected in
the same year. Sounds enticing, but a
closer look reveals a serious flaw.
During a weak economy like we've
been experiencing since 2008 rev-
enues may decrease while simultane-
ously demand will likely increase for
federal expenditures such as unem-
ployment insurance, food stamps, job
training and placement, Temporary
Assistance to Needy Families and the
overall cost of health care including
Medicaid. At a time when more people
would need help, less funding would


be available to provide it. Increasing
expenditures would only be possible
by a supermajority approval of
Congress -'a herculean feat not like-
ly to occur in a timely manner for many
families.
Last.year, the Northeast Florida
Community Action Agency helped
32,000 people in its seven-county serv-
ice area, which includes Nassau
County, a 39 percent increase from
the previous year. Not only did we
serve more people, we saw our client
profile change, as people who never
before needed help with food, shelter,
utility costs and job training and edu-
cation sought help. Under a balanced
budget scenario, thousands of First
Coast families likely would not have
received assistance;
We must reduce the federal deficit,
but a balanced budget amendment is
not the answer. Too many families
would be hurt and economic recov-
ery would take much longer with this
approach.

Matter oftiming
Fact! Government decisions and
policies, whether local, state or feder-
al, affect our way of life and pocket-
book. Taxpayers have a right to
express their opinion about how their
tax dollars are spent. Elected officials
and agency heads need to be informed
of our viewpoints at each level of gov-
ernment. Here is a novel idea regard-
ing just how to do that Instead of react-
ing to a certain bill or ordinance after
it is passed, why don't we start inform-
ing the "powers to be" how we feel
about an issue before it becomes the
law of the land?
Many leave the political process to
chance. We contact our representa-
tives to let them know our displeasure
with their vote on an issue after the
fact. Elected officials get an earful on
why they don't know what they are
doing, and threats of losing our votes
in the next election. Guess what? By
then it is too late. The "damage" is
done!
It makes more sense to contact our
officials when an issue is currently


being "debated" before the actual vote.
Pro or con, they need to know how
their constituents feel about an issue.
If they are worth their "elective salt"
our representatives will appreciate our
input. If they hear nothing from us,
the message sent is that we just don't
care! Our viewpoints are more impor-
tant in the formulating stage of the
debate, rather than the reactionary
stage.
Today's political environment
affords us the opportunity to contact
our elected officials with relative ease.
They all have phone numbers, faxes or
emails readily accessible to the public.
Don't just tell them that you are for or
against something. There is no need to
write a novel either. Give them sever-
al points explaining your position.
Mention the cost or the merits if appro-
priate. Your viewpoint may be the one
that changes the debate or sways an
official to your side.
With so many issues that come
before taxpayers, we just can't address
them all in their infancy. We can't
spend all day, every day, contacting
our reps. If we did, we wouldn't be
.much good to our family and friends.
But on those selective issues about
which we are passionate, we must take
the time. It is time well spent.
Let's be aware that the taxpayers'
effectiveness is a "matter of timing"
and not wait until it is too late to have
an impact on the political process.
Maybe, just maybe, we will never again
have to read a bill once it is passed to
find out what is in it.

with its own character and ener-
gy."

everyone, "from the hip, mod-
ern woman who wants the
newest colors and highlight
trends, to the guy who wants a

did the bleach at home and
needs a color correction, and
everyone in between," says
Hutchinson.

lights/lowlights, color correc-
tion, styling, perms, Pravana
hair straightening and hair-
cuts for men, women and chil-
dren.
Clients may also receive

"We are the only salon in
North Florida to offer the iscio


Japanese Hair Retexturing
System, a formaldehyde-free
treatment that you can choose
to make your hair silky straight
or with smooth curls."
One client who underwent
this procedure was so pleased,
even her husband told

wife so happy!"
"I try to make everybody
happy," replied the proud styl-
ist.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Ryan
Smith of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
and the city ofFernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip"program 1-800-78CRIME
- also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.
Attempted murder
A Yulee man was arrested
June 21 after allegedly shoot-
ing at three women as they fled
from him in a car.
Antoine Lamar Hill, 27,
866748 Worthington Drive,
Yulee, was charged with
attempted murder and felony
battery.
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies were dispatched June
21 to Volunteer Fire Station 3,
86048 Goodbread Road, where
they met with three women who
were waiting at the station after
summoning law enforcement.
The women had allegedly
driven to Hill's residence to con-
front him about whom he was
dating. An argument ensued
and Hill allegedly struck one of
the victims in the face, causing
a laceration that required med-
ical attention. He then alleged-
ly told all three, "All y'all gonna
die."
The three women told
deputies that they fled the resi-
dence and sped away in their
car as Hill pursued them with a
rifle. As they were leaving the
area, Hill allegedly shot at the
car with a handgun.
Later investigation revealed
a single bullet hole in the car,
just forward of the driver's door,
as well as a spent shell casing in
Hill's driveway, the police report
stated.
When deputies confronted
Hill, he allegedly told them that
he had fired twice at the vehicle
because the women were trying
to run him down and he feared
for his life. He then allegedly
showed deputies a .40-calibre
handgun sitting on his kitchen
counter. A search of his home
revealed a loaded AR-15 assault
rifle and blood believed to
belong to one of the victims in
the bedroom, living room and
foyer.


Hill was arrested and
booked into the Nassau County
Jail.
Stun gun used
,A Hilliard man was arrested
and his girlfriend shot with a
stun gun Saturday after the man
allegedly became violent while
resisting arrest.
Rodney Alan Kirk, 46, 28079
Karma Drive, Hilliard, was
charged with fleeing and elud-
ing police and resisting an offi-
cer with violence, both felonies,
and misdemeanor DUI and driv-
ing without registration. His girl-
friend, Amy Kennedy who
lives at the same address- was
issued a summons for oppos-
ing a police officer and released
at the scene.
About 12:30 a.m. Saturday,
Nassau County Deputy Charles
Lucas allegedly saw a white
truck traveling south on US 1
and weaving between lanes.
According to the police report,
when Lucas tried to pull the
vehicle over, it turned around
and headed north on US 1 and
accelerated to a high rate of
speed. The vehicle allegedly
turned onto Karma Drive, a
small private road, and pulled
into the driveway at Kirk's
address.
Kirk, the driver then alleged-
ly exited the truck and
approached Lucas rapidly.
Lucas drew his gun and com-
manded Kirk to stop, but Kirk
allegedly shouted profanity and
continued to advance.
Lucas wrestled Kirk to the
ground, but Kirk allegedly con-
tinued to struggle as he was
cuffed. When Lucas leaned Kirk
against the patrol car to search
him, Kirk allegedly grabbed at
his gunbelt and was wrestled
to the ground again.
During the struggle,
Kennedy had allegedly come
out of the house and refused
Lucas's commands to step away
and stand on the porch. She
allegedly told Lucas more than
once to turn off his patrol car's
blue lights "because she had
neighbors." According to the
report, Sgt. Tim Cooper of the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
then arrived and Lucas asked
him to help control Kennedy.
After Kennedy allegedly
refused several orders to get on
the ground, Cooper shot her
,with his stun gun.
Investigation allegedly
revealed that the vehicle itself
was unregistered and bearing, a
North Carolina tag that
belonged to another vehicle.
Kirk was booked into the


Nassau County Jail. The tag on
his truck was seized and placed
in an evidence locker to be
returned to tte North Carolina
Division of Motor Vehicles.
TV stolen
A television was stolen from
a Fernandina Beach restaurant
in the early morning hours of
June 20, according to the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department.
Police responded June 20 to
a call from Sliders Restaurant,
1998 South Fletcher Ave.,
where manager David Forbes
said a 45-inch flat-screen TV had
been removed from the restau-
rant sometime between 1 a.m.
and 8 a.m. that morning.
An employee told police that
the TV was there when she
locked up the restaurant the
evening before. There was no
sign of forced entry. The case is
pending.

FLEXING HER MUSCLES


Shari Riepe, 44, of Yulee took third place in the Ms. Fitness Universe competition in Miami June 18. She executed
a high backflip, splits, kicks and acrobatics during the competition that aired on ESPN. Riepe, who will be featured
in Oxygen magazine, will compete July 23 in St. Augustine.

.-------.------------.....--..-.----A------._


Shari Riepe, i-I -yI.:ir-, I.1 mother of four
from Yulee, hl. .Iugihl she was too old for fitness
competitions.
"I just started tumbling again in the last
year," she said. "I thought maybe I was too
old."
Riepe was inspired by a 61-year-old fellow
competitor at an event last summer.
"She was tumbling," Riepe said. "Maybe
I'm not too old."
Riepe collected hardware at several events
last year, not long after moving to the area
from Alaska with her family. She was third in
the world championships and at an event in
Tampa and then took the crown in Daytona.
Her latest trophy was awarded after she
placed third in the Ms. Fitness Universe com-


"I did a better backflip this time than the
last competition," Riepe said.
S Al 'ijiiin, acrobatic:instructor, Riepe took
up competitive fitness when she was 30 and
pregnant with her fourth child. Since lh- rn, she
has undergone five knee surgeries and has
been diagnosed with a neuromuscular condi-
tion similar to muscular dystrophy, she said.
But it doesn't stop her.
"I take medicine as needed, but I hardly
ever need it," she said. "I really like to encour-
age people, no matter if they have ailments,
through physical condition, you can overcome
them. I roll out of bed and hurt every morn-.
ing. As long as I do all my stuff, I'm OK."
The Miami event drew 600 athletes in all
c:tr gy:n. Riepe competed in the over-35
women's division, losing out to a 35-year-old


flip, acrobatic moves and splits.
'"They both had extreme gymnastic back-
grounds," Riepe said. "And they were both
younger than me."
Riepe, who trains at Anytime Fitness in
Yulee and teaches gymnastics and yoga class-
es at the Peck Center in Fernandina Beach,
has advice for anyone wanting to take up fit-
ness, regardless of their age.
"I eat a high protein, vegetable and gluten-
free diet for the most part," she said. "I do car-
dio every morning when I wake up by running
a mile outside and I lift weights three times
per week at the gym for a half hour. I stay
active with teaching gymnastics, yoga and.
kayaking.
"Cardio is iI most important component
for health and training. I hear many ladies tell


yourself exercise every day even when you
don't feel like it' That is the secret to -ll I
and staying fit."
Riepe will next compete in the Ancient City
Classic July 23 at the Pedro Menendez High
School in St. Augustine.
"I'm really trying to get people to come to
that one," she said. "Finally I'm doing one
close."
Riepe's fitness routine expands beyond on
healthy eating and exercise.
"I don't drink or smoke and I've never done
drugs," she said. "Fitness is a focus on health."
Riepe followed in the shoes of her father, a
body builder in the 1970s who competed
against Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"He was Mr. America," Riepe said of father
Randy Watson, 70.

Offshore heating up with grou


, kings at ledges


Offshore fishing is
beginning to heat up
at offshore rock
ledges, where bait-
fish schools are the main
attraction. This past weekend
a few kingfish began to bend
saltwater trolling rods, which
is long-awaited good news for
offshore fishermen.
The grouper bite has also
been pretty consistent; lime
rock ledges offer an excellent
ambush point and hideout for
gag grouper that may weigh
upwards of 40 pounds.
Some of the best ledge
fishing is now coming from
FA, HH and AH fish havens.
Deep-sea fishermen will
find rock ledges ranging from
1-5 feet that are now attract-
ing massive schools of cigar
minnows, Spanish sardines
and glass minnows. Find the
right rock ledge with current
and baitfish schools and you
will have an excellent chance
at locating speedy king mack-
erel arid fighting gag grouper.
Rock ledges are affected
by wind currents and tides,
particularly ledges that are
located within eight miles off-
shore of both the St. Marys
and Nassau inlets.
Amelia Island has excel-
lent offshore fishing close to
shore thanks to numerous
rock ledge faults that run
north and south. As the tide
falls and runs directly east, a
variety of game fish are
drawn to the hard bottom
ledges as currents push
schools of baitfish over the
high spot of the rock ledge.
The best offshore ledge
fishing for both grouper and
kingfishcomes during all of
the falling tide. The first of
the falling tide offers the best
fishing action at'nearshore
rock ledges when water clari-
ty is best.
To further sweeten the
deep-sea fishing action, a
high falling tide arriving dur-
ing mid morning at offshore
rock ledges is premium. Add
to your fishing success a light-
west wind that helps increase
offshore currents running


west to east.
Most sea-
soned ledge
fishermen
prefer to
anchor their
boat slightly
up current of
J the ledge so
OirmnRstheir bottom
OUTDOORS baits are
...- fished right
Tery Lacoss on top of the
rock ledge.
If you know of any fellow fish-
ermen who have already
anchored up their deep-sea
boat, give them a call on the
VHF radio or cell phope and
ask for the compass direction
their boat is presently on
anchor, which will eliniinate a
lot of guess work while
anchoring your boat.
If there is little wind and
current, drifting over the
ledge while bumping bottom
fishing baits deep on the
ledge is an excellent option.
Drift fishing allows fishermen
to actually see if the bottom
fish are actually on a good
bite or they will need to move
to a second rock ledge.
If your first drift produces
a nice grouper bite, you may.
wish to motor up current of
the rock ledge and set your
boat's anchor.
Your fishing party will
have several options while
enjoying a successful day of
ledge fishing.
The first option is to rig a
live cigar minnow, Spanish
sardine or pogy to a kingfish
wire leader and drift the live
bait some 50-75 feet off the
transom of your drift fishing
boat. A second live bait is
rigged to a kingfish leader
with a small balloon attached
to your terminal fishing line
some eight feet above the
kingfish leader. The balloon
keeps the live bait just under
the surface and actually helps
drift the live bait away from
the boat.
Live baits drifted off the
transom of your fishing boat
give your fishing party the
option of catching speedy

king mackerel, Spanish mack-
erel, cobia and the occasional
sailfish.
Live bait rods normally
include 20-pound tackle that
allows live baits to swim
freely and fishermen the
enjoyment of fighting game-
fish on light tackle.
When it's time to break
out the heavy bottom fishing
tackle, 50-pound class fishing


tackle is a must when reeling
big grouper away from a
deep-water rock ledge. A tan-
dem double-hook bottom rig
allows ledge fishermen to fish
two baits on the bottom. A
live cigar minnow or pogy is
fished on the top hook while a
fresh squid or cut bait is
fished on'the bottom hook.
Finally a six- to eight-ounce
bank sinker holds your bait


dead on the bottom.
Once a big grouper or
cobia takes your bottom bait,
lift your rod with a strong,
hook-setting motion. Once
you have set the hook, never
drop the rod or the grouper
with break you off on the
deep-water ledge.
Chumming is also
extremely effective while
ledge fishing with chunks of

Statutes, within fourteen days
of receipt of notice. The pro-
cedures for petitioning for a
hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected by
the Department's proposed
permitting decision may peti-
tion for an administrative pro-
ceeding (hearing) under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. The petition
must contain the information
set forth below and must be
filed (received by the Clerk)
in the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4),
Florida Administrative Code,
a person may request an
extension of the time for filing
a petition for an administra-
tive hearing.The request must
be filed (received 'by the
Clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel before the end of the
time period forfiling a petition
for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to
written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must
be filed within fourteen days of
publication of the notice or
within fourteen days of receipt
of the written notice, whichev-
er occurs first. Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, how-
ever, also allows that any per-
son who has asked the
Department for notice of
agency action may file a peti-
tion within fourteen days of
receipt of such notice, regard-
less of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mall a
copy of the petition to the
applicdnt at the address indi-
cated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition or request for
an extension of time within
fourteen days of receipt of
notice shall constitute a waiv-
er of that person's right to
request an administrative
determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. Any subse-
quent intervention (in a pro-
ceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the dis-
cretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative
Code.
A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the
Department's action is based
must contain the following
information, as indicated in
Rule 28-106.201, Florida
Administrative Code:
(a) The name and address
of each agency affected and
each agency's file or identifi-
cation number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and
telephone number of the peti-
tioner; the name, address, and
telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any,
which shall be the address for


service purposes during the
course of the proce -ding; and
an explanation of how the
petitioner's substantial inter-
ests will be affected by the
determination;
(c) A statement of when
and how the petitioner re-
ceived notice of the Depart-
ment's decision:
(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged,
including the specific facts the
petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the
Department's proposed ac-
tion;


(f) A statement of the spe-
cific rules or statutes the peti-
tioner contends require rever-
sal or modification of the De-
partment's proposed action:
and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner, stat-
ing precisely the action peti-
tioner wishes the Department
to take with respect to the
Department's proposed
action.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed
to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's
final action may be different
from the position taken by it
in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be
affected by any such final
decision of the Department
have the right to petition to
become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with
the requirements set forth
above.
In addition to requesting an
administrative hearing, any
petitioner may elect to pur-
sue mediation. The election
may be accomplished by filing
with the Department a medi-
ation agreement with all par-
ties to the proceeding (ie., the
applicant, the Department,
and any person who has filed
a timely and sufficient petition
for a hearing). The agreement
must contain all the informa-
tion required by Rule 28-
106.404, Florida Administrative
Code.The agreement must be
received by the Clerk in the
Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, within ten
days after the deadline for fil-
ing a petition, as set forth
above. Choosing mediation
will,not adversely affect the
right to a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section
120,573, Florida Statutes, the
timely agreement of all par-
ties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, for holding an admin-
istrative hearing and issuing a
final order. Unless otherwise
agreed by the parties, the
mediation must be conduded
within sixty days of the execu-
tion of the agreement. If medi-
ation results in settlement of
the administrative dispute, the
Department must enter a final
order incorporating the agree-
ment of the parties. Persons
seeking to protect their sub-
stantid interests that would be
affected by such a modified
final decision must file their
petitions within fourteen days
of receipt of this notice, or they
shall be deemed to have
waived their right to a pro-
ceeding under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes..If mediation termi-
nates without settlement of
the dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in writing
that the administrative hearing
processes under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, remain available for
disposition of the dispute, and
the notice will specify the
deadlines that then will apply
for challenging the agency
action and electing remedies
, ;under.tqse twostatutes.
