26% property tax cut for
water management board
PALATKA The St. Johns River
Water Management District
Governing Board approved a tenta-
tive budget Tuesday that reduces
property tax revenues by 26 percent
as part of Gov. Rick Scott's and the
Legislature's goals to reduce proper-
ty taxes and focus on the district's
core missions and responsibilities.
-The tentative rate will result in
$85.3 million in revenue that will be
part of a total $209 million budget that
will also be funded with prior years'
state and carryover funds, timber
sales, cattle leases, interest earnings
and permit fees.
Under the proposed 0.3313 mill-
,age rate -33.13 cents for every $1,000
of assessed property value the
owner of a $200,000 house with a
$50,000 homestead exemption would
pay $49:69 per year in property taxes
to the district. The district includes
Nassau County. .
"The tentative budget approved
today will allow the district to focus on
its core missions,.- l IuI.., I.. providing
some tax relief for property owners,"

Leonard Wood of Fernandina Beach.

Seniors vulnerable to Internet scams
For the News-Leader
We're forever warning teenagers to
be careful online don't reveal personal
information to strangers, avoid scams,
report bullying behavior. The same
advice may be appropriate for grandma
and grandpa as well. Seniors are the
fastest-growing segment of new Internet
users, as they've discovered email,
online shopping and banking, social net-
working, traveling planning and other
Even the most tech-savvy among us
sometimes fall prey to online scammers,
so if your parents or grandparents have
recently taken the online plunge, here
are some safety tips you can share:
Update security software. Make
sure their computers have anti-virus and
anti-spyware software and show them
how to update it regularly. =
Think like the bad guys. Even the
best software isn't 100 percent foolproof,
so teach them how to anticipate and
ward off annoying or criminal behav-
ior. For example:
Only open or download information
from trusted sites to which you navigat-
ed yourself. Don't assume a link con-
tained in an email, even from a friend,
will necessarily take you to a company's
Don't click on pop-up windows or '
banners that appear when you're brows-
ing a site. :
Common email scams that target sen-
iors include offers for
and low-cost insur-
ance, and supposed
warnings from the
IRS which inciden-
tally, never contacts
taxpayers by email.
Financial institutions never email cus-
tomers asking for verification of account
or password information.
When shopping online, look for safe-
ty symbols such as a padlock icon in the
browser's status bar, an "s" after "http"
in the URL address, or the words
"Secure Sockets Layer" (SSL) or
"Transport Layer Security" (TLS).
These are signs that the merchant is
using a secure page for transmitting per-
These are all common tricks used to
infect your computer with viruses or to

strokes to obtain account or other confi-
Use strong passwords. Believe it or
not, the most frequently used password
is "password." Other common, easy-to-
crack passwords include simple numeric
sequences and names of pets, spouses
and children. For more secure pass-
Use at least seven characters with a
mixture of upper and lower-case letters,
numbers ard symbols.
Use unique passwords for each
account in case one gets compromised.
Change passwords frequently.

League slams state for
nursing home cuts
Florida News Connection
Florida League of Women
Voters is slamming the state
Legislature for refusing to
spend $2 million to help the
elderly stay out of nursing
homes. By failing to fork over
the funds, Florida's legislative
leadership in effect returned
$35 million in federal matching
funds to Washington.
League president Deirdre
Macnab asks what the legis-
lature was thinking. "This is
really an unfortunate, quite a
disgraceful decision, I think,
by the state, particularly when
we are sending people into
nursing homes. The state has
just cut funding by almost 10
percent to nursing homes."
In recent months, Florida
has forfeited $54 million.in
grants because the funds were
related to the federal
Affordable Healthcare Act.
Florida and 25 other states are
challenging'the act's "individ-
ual mandate" in court, while
other states are accepting the
Macnab admits these are
difficult economic times in
Florida, but she says the state
needs less partisanship and
more policy based on eco-
nomic sense. "Because of our
state's refusal to participate in
any way in the federal health
care plan, and in particular this
program, we are going to be
.spending our own state money
at almost twice as much,
$80,000 a year, to put these
people in nursing homes."

Looking to trade
cars? Here are 10
tips to prepare
More potential car buyers
are finding themselves trad-.
ing versus selling their car
privately. Financing realities
for prospective buyers make
selling your car harder than
it used to be. Those prepar-
ing to trade can help their
cause with a little planning.
In no. specific order, here'are
some tips from a guy who
has appraised cars for
1) Make sure it is clean
inside and out. If your car is
in tough shape, spend the
money for a detail. First
impressions count with peo-
ple and cars too. Dealers
have to make an offer to buy
your car in a matter of min-
utes. Walking up to appraise
a clean car makes a differ-
ence. Tidy up the inside as
2) Fix body'damage. The
old saying "time is money"
applies to the car business. If
a dealer has to spend days or
weeks getting a car's body-
work done, it will hurt the
value. And sales managers
aren't body shop specialists.
They may deduct on the high
side for body damage so as
not to bewrong. -
Many times these cars
are wholesaled and the num-
ber of wholesalers willing to
Sbuy a wrecked car is mini-
mal. The exception to this is
an old clunker; where the
repairs would not help much.
3) Research your payoff.
It is much simpler to have
the exact amount and not
trade based on an estimate,
where you are responsible
for any shortfall. Ask for a 10-
day payoff to give time for a
payoff to be processed.
4) Bring your title, if the
car is paid for. Most people
now shop just over two deal-
ers and trade. Be prepared
by having your title. It shows-
you are serious and can help
you negotiate a better deal.
5) Bring your up to date
registration card, insurance
information and driver's
license. You will need these'
and can save a trip back to
6) Research wholesale or
trade-in value if it makes you
more comfortable. Basically,
...i.- your expec-
r at retail val-
...ues or ask-

you are ready to act. Buyers
get better quotes than shop-
pers in any industry, and the
car business is no exception.
8) Address key mechani-
cal faults. Brakes that are
squeaking and spent hurt a
trade value. Get them fixed.
Check engine or other dash
lights can hurt. I once had to
spend $6,000 to fix a check
engine light on a Land Rover.
While that is an extreme
example, check engine and
brake light repairs can be
minor or very expensive.
Guess what an appraiser has
9) Good tires help, but
aren't a must. Most dealers
get good buys on tires. On
high-end or big truck mod-
els, tires cost a bundle and
you can expect a deduction
for trades in need.
10) Weigh the benefits of
trading. Today's market
favors the consumer with the
best historical trade values in
many years. Fewer new cars
sold and leased the last few
years have created a short-
age. It is a trader's market.
Get your ducks in a row
and go help the economy by
trading cars. Your local new
and used car dealers will
appreciate the opportunity.
Even if you don't trade, get
your vehicle up to speed so
when the itch comes, you
can be ready. Back to school
is coming in just weeks, so
enjoy the rest of summer.

VIEWPOINT/ROBERT M. WEINTRAUB/MARSH LAKES
'Entitlements' are just
become a dirty word. Fiscal
conservatives through their'
public statements, letters to
newspapers, blogs, social
media rants, etc. have creat-
ed the impression that people
on Social Security, Medicare
and government pensions
are the cause of the precari-
ous financial condition of our
federal, state and local gov-
ernments. They call for deep
cuts in these programs in the
name of "deficit reduction."
What is missing in the dis-
cussion is the fact that these
"entitlements" have been
paid for and/or earned.
Social Security and Medicare
do not even contribute to the
national debt so should not
be part of the discussion. The
fiscal conservatives use sev-
eral misstatements of fact to
support their position:
1. The Social Security pro-
gram is, broke. Not true! At
the end of 2010 the Social
Security trust fund had a bal-
ance of.$2.6 trillion. With
interest and continued contri-
butions by current workers,
by'2022 the fund will have a
b;il:inc.-f $3.6,7 trillion. After
lhat yvea. without any
changes, the fund will gradu-
ally decline because there
will- be more people collect-
ifi'gocial Security benefits
i han will be contributing to
She fund The reserves will
be enough to pay full benefits
through 2036. Since when is ,
it a crisis when a government
program'will be solvent for
Social Security has not
only been the most effective
government program, it has
been the most responsible
government program. The
program's costs are funded
out of its own dedicated
money stream. It cannot bor-
row money, therefore does
not contribute to the national
ddbt, It could not be better
costs are .09 cents per dollar.
It returns more than 99 cents
for every dollar it collects.
Minor changes, such as
increasing the salary limit on
which Social Security contri-
butions are based, will
extend the fund's reserves
far into the future.
2. Social Security recipi-
ents are living on the backs
of their children and grand-
children. Not true! Since
1935 workers and their
employers have been paying
into the program. Virtually
everyone on Social Security
today and the "boomers"
beginning to receive benefits
iscollecting their own
money. In 1935 the govern-
ment made a contract with
Americans that in return for
contributions during their
working years they will be
"entitled" to payments begin-
ning when they reach retire-
ment age (67 for those born
after 1960 as result of a 1983
change). Fiscal conservatives
want'to unilaterally break
3. Medicare is too costly
and must be curtailed to
reduce the national debt.
Fiscal conservatives conve-'
niently ignore the fact that
most people on Medicare
made contributions to the
fund through payroll deduc-
tions from 1965to retire-
ment, and continue to pay
into the fund after retire-
ment. The fund is projected
- to be solvent until 2024;
therefore it is not contribut-.
ing to the current national
debt. The money paid by the
government to cover
Medicare bills is the benefici-
aries' own money to which
they are entitled.
Ending Medicare as we
,know it, the plan of the fiscal,
conservatives that was
passed by the U.S. House of
Representatives (but not the
Senate) this year, would be
the same as canceling a long-
term health insurance policy
after you've paid for it over 45
years. Medicate is a health
insurance contract between
the government and the peo-
ple. To'assure the fund's
long-term solvency we
should curtail healthcare
costs rather than Medicare
benefits. Taking the "profit"
out of health care is one
approach. Why should peo-
ple get seven-figure profits
out of health services such as
MRIs? Why are prescription
drugs so much more costly
in the U.S. than anywhere
else? Change the system that
rewards doctors and hospi-
tals for the number of "proce-
dures" or "visits" to one that
rewards them for the quality
of care they give. There are
many ideas to reduce
Medicare costs, such as a
Massachusetts program that
has reduced costly emer-
gency room visits by 22 per-
4. Government pensioners
feed at the public trough.
Again, the fiscal conserva-
tives ignore the basic fact
behind government pen-
sions: they were offered in
lieu of higher wages. For
most of the past century, peo-
ple were attracted to govern-
ment jobs despite low pay
because of the pensions
offered. For 25 years my
uncle trudged along as a
postal carrier, "in snow and
rain and heat and gloom of
night," at a low wage because
he was promised a pension
when he retired. Now the fis-
cal conservatives want to
reduce that pension that was
promised him and to which
he is "entitled" for his 25
years of work. Again, this is a
breachof contract. For years
governments local, state,
federal- have benefited fiom

pensions they offered. In

Potato souo for the soul
Providence graces us when we least
expect it, and quite often when we're in
need of a little mental boost or smile.
My better angels brought me a care
package this week in the form of a Facebook
greeting from an old friend.
I was feeling a little blue before I opened it.
By the time I was done reading it, the tears
streaming down my face were the product of
the gut-busting laugh I'd just had. The best
gifts are those you least expect, and usually
Her name's Martha. I'll not give away her
last name. We've known each other since first
grade when we attended a little Catholic ele-
mentary and junior high school in a little town
in a little county in a little corner of South.
Georgia. I thought she was one of the prettiest
girls in school but, being terrified of the oppo-
site sex during much of those formative years,
I found it hard to even talk to her without my
tongue getting caught between the gaps in my
teeth. She had a quick smile, as sudden as a
ray of sunshine and hair like the silken chest-
nut mane you might find on one of the fine
horses she favored.
On the socioeconomic scale of our little
town, Martha's folks were considered, in the
polite term of the day, well to do. But that did-
n't matter to Martha. She romped through
everyone's life like a playful filly whether their
daddies wore overalls or suits.
I've not seen her since our 10th high school
class reunion. And then night before last, just
when I needed something to
make me smile, she reached
S out from her Paso Fino horse
farm in Iowa and tickled my
She said hello and jumped
right into a remembrance of
my late mama's homemade
potato soup. At lunchtime, all

... many of us now that I think
about it all sat down togeth-
Joe Palmer er. There was a hierarchy and
pecking order, of course,
though the always watchful nuns kept the
order. And it was sort of a custom that you
could swap your lunch with another kid if he or
she had something you craved and vice versa.
Martha craved some of my mama's potato
soup and hatched a scheme to get it. Knowing
that I probably wouldn't be tempted by the
soggy pineapple sandwich which we kids
sometimes derisively called "Hawaiian
Hamburgers" in her lunch pail, she contrived
with her older and wiser sister to bribe me. I
love ice cream. Always have. A pleasant death
for me would be to fall face first into a vat of
Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia and burst while
trying to eat my way out of it. I .
And so it was that Martha and her older sis-
ter hatched the ice cream caper. We had vend-
ing machines in the cafeteria that actually dis-
pensed cups of ice cream and ice cream sand-
wiches for a dime a king's ransom to a third
grader, for sure. Martha's sister gave her a
dime. Martha deposited said dime in the ice
cream vending machine and came back to our
table bearing it like a crown of jewels on a silk
And thus it came to be, to Martha's great
dismay, when she returned bearing ice cream
with which to tempt me out of mama's tater
soup, there I sat snarfing down a big hunk of
homemade cake one df the Boyle brothers
brought while one of the Boyle brothers
slurped down mama's soup.
I'd completely forgotten this tale until two
nights ago and I've been laughing about it ever
since. Sometimes the best friends are the ones
you rarely see but somehow seem to sense,
even across great distances, that what you
need more than a bowl of your mama's home-
made potato soup is a smile and a laugh. And
somehow, Lord knows how, they always mar-
age to provide.
I wonder if Martha remembers cornering
me at our-eighth-grade graduation party and
making me dance with her. It was a slow one,
Bobby Goldsboro singing "Honey." Martha
sang softly in my ear. I had two left feet and
goose bumps as big as bon bons.
First she tried ice cream. Then she tried
honey. She never did get that potato soup.
Hey, Martha, old friend. Soup's on. You
bring the ice cream. Cherry Garcia, please.
VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Heavily influenced by such ultral-
iberal icons as Democrat Congress -
creatures Anthony Weiner, Nancy
Pelosi and Charles Rangel, plus
President Obama, the critics of my
factual op-ed essay for the News-Leader
("Keep the library, fire the librarians,"
May 24) probably have set a publish-
ing record for obfuscation, mendacity
and sheer foolishness.'
Not one letter writer challenged
my facts that prove the unfairness,
self-described "militant radicalism"
and far-left, anti-social bias of the
American Library Association and its
obedient Fernandina Beach library
members. Instead, my unglued local
critics unleashed a pathetic ad
hominem attack on me, the bearer of
incontestable, damning information
about their sacred cows and wicked
My critics' simple-but-transparent

. Fortunately for buth douui C, i'iLI-
nity aid nation;,sucl rabid pivarica-
tors as my would-be detractors are a
distinct political and social minority. I
predict they will sink irretrievably
deeper'into their demonic fever swamp
come the night of Nov. 6, 2012.
I feel I must respond to the misin-
formation provided in ("Fairness," July
8). The writer mocks, the city of
Fernandina Beach's attempts to get
relief from the county commission for
services- its residents 'are paying for
twice as city residents and as coun-
ty residents. The writer compares this
with an unsuccessful county attempt
sometime in the past to have the city-
owned water utility drop its 25 percent
surcharge on non-city residents'water
bills. He questions the legality or per-
haps "fairness" of the surcharge and
states it is based on an "obscure"
Florida law that allows the 25 percent
surcharge for "customers outside a
municipality who request access to a
city utility." He describes the law as
,'mute" concerning himself (and oth-
ers) who were already customers
when the city bought the water utility
and presumably he feels he is "unfair-
ly" overpaying for his water.
Fascinating reading though lack-
ing in accuracy and facts. There is
nothing questionable about the water
surcharge. The statute in question is
ES. 180.191 and the only thing
"obscure" about it is that the writer
has' apparently not read it and offers
his own description of it with his'own
self-serving spin and wording. The
statute clearly states that "the munic-
ipality may add a surcharge of not
more than 25 percent of such rates,
fees and charges to consumers out-
side the boundaries." Period. Inclusion
of the wording "customers outside a
municipality who request access to a
city utility" in the statute does sound
vaguely like the surcharge was intend-
ed to be limited only to new customers
except this wording and nothing
ii_-n iui iilari in the statute btt exists
purely in the writer's mind.
The surcharge is assessed by sev-
eral cities across Florida (it is hardly
unusual) and application of it has been
challenged on several occasions for
one reason or another. The courts
have been emphatic that cities can col-
lect these surcharges as a return on
their investment and to cover extra
costs they may have to serve non-res-
idents (and do not have to quantify
Actually the writer should be thank-
ful for this "obscure" law as one of its
objectives was to limit'how much of a
surcharge these cities could charge.
,The fact that the writer was a preex-
isting customer when the city pur-
chased the utility or that.the city may
have overpaid for the utility is just side
chatter and of no relevance to appli-
cation bf the statute. If the county attor-
ney seriously thought this was "ques-
tionable," as the writer states, then it
should have been challenged in court.
JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILYTRIBUNE
Interesting that it was not.
Why should a city resident pay the
same rate for water as a non-resident?
We own the utility and are paying extra
property taxes for its acquisition. The -
writer does not. Using the writer's
flawed logic he would ultimately be
paying less for city-owned water than
city residents pay. How does he figure
that is fair? Bottom line there's noth-
ing improper, unusual or questionable
about the surcharge. If you don't want
city water, dig a well.
On his other point, I don't think he
needs to seriously-worry about the
county commission offering the city of
Fernandina Beach any monetary relief
regardless of the water surcharge
issue. The county has no obligation
to reimburse the city for services the
city decided on its own that it will also
provide- and the city has no obligation
to keep providing these services.
Asking the county for relief is fine
(good luck with that) but the city
should not think that it has no cards to
play if this is rejected.
If the city commission thinks it is
overpaying for law enforcement, fire
protection, rescue services, etc., and
that its agreements with the county
are unfairly one-sided, I suggest it stop
whining and reassess how these are
handled and were negotiated. No oqe
forced the city to sign these,agree-
Instead of nibbling at the edges at
budget time the city ought to be doing
a major reassessment of how it does
business. If we are already paying the
county for various services is it essen-
tial that these services are also pro-
vided by the city? Why?
Many thanks lastWednesday to our
local Fire Rescue EMTs from 911 dis-
patch to their exceptionally quick
appearance at Lowe's-about 10 min-
utes later to assist my husband, stabi-
lize him and remove him to the trauma
center at Shands. Such responsiveness
and professionalism makes all the dif-
ference in a time of emergency.
Thanks as well to'all the Lowe's
personnel who responded to my calls
for assistance. You will not be forgotten.

There has been general and con-
tinuing agreement that these commu-

the thought for the day to concept of

quest of unattainable unanimity
among concerned citizens as to ele-

No offseason for Hornets' Rainey, Henry
There's little downtime for
football players even in the
offseason. Especially for
Yulee's Kelvin Rainey and
Derrick "Shocka" Henry.
Rainey was offered a full
ride to play football at South
Carolina and verbally accept-

good," said the 18-year-old

High School. 'The campus is

'"The thing that really got
me was the academics. It's
perfect. It's what I needed. It
just got me."
Rainey will be trading in
his Hornet green and gold for
a Gamecock digs in 2012.
"Steve Spurrier is one of
the best coaches in the
nation," Rainey said. "It was a
good program last year arid
they're always in the top 25."
But before he can focus on
his freshman year in South
Carolina, Rainey has his final
season as a Hornet ahead of
"We're not going to be as
big, but we're going to be big-

scored a record-setting score
of 138.51 in the finals, but
three others posted higher'
scores: Landon Collins of
Louisiana posted the high
score at 143.76.
Henry finished fourth
"Outstanding, considering A.
only three underclassmen
were invited," said J.T.
Medley, assistant coach at
Yulee High School and both
players' former middle school
coach. 'The rest will be sen-
lors next season."
SPlayers received instruc-.
tion from NFL and former
NFL players on the second
day. Among the high-profile
instructors were Jerry Rice,
Jonathan Stewart, Dwayne
Bowe; Joe Haden, Patrick
Peterson and Ray Rice.
Skill players and linemen
were broken up into teams
for lineman competition and
seven-on-seven on the final
two days of the event.
Vidal Alexander of
Georgia finished as the top
lineman at the event. Henry's
team, Team Alpha Talon, won
the seven-on-seven national
championship, edging Team
Vapor Carbon 12-7.
'Henry was not only the
most valuable player on the

team last season, he earned
all-First Coast offensive play-

Mountain climbing, whitewaterraftingforpair ofbeach boys
My son Parker and I recently went
away to the mountains of North
Carolina to try our hands at some
mountain adventures. It was the
firsttime we had done any such trip together.'
The first step was finding the right guide to
help us with the trip.
After doing my research, I found Joe
Moerschbaecher with Pura Vida Adventures
(pvadventures.com) to assist us. Joe holds a
master's degree in adventure
recreation from Ohio
University and has taught col-
lege courses in climbing,
kayaking, mountain biking
'" and backpacking. He holds
S certifications as a Wilderness
S First Responder, an American
S Canoe Association Swiftwater
Rescue Instructor and an
SPODTS Association guide.
Joe was exactly who I was
MEDICINE looking for. As you can imag-
ine, I am big on experience
GREGORY and safety.
SMITH. M.D. Our first day would be
spent rocking climbing at
... Looking Glass Rock, a 600-
foot bare-faced wall in the
Pisgah National Forest in Brevard near
Asheville. At the bottom of the mountain,
there is a trail which climbs 1,700 feet over a
three-mile hike and typically takes about.two
hours to traverse.
For those less adventurous, there is road
access with only a short hike to the rock.
This was my first experience rock climbing.
Joe went up first, securing the safety ropes.
Then we were off. I've tried the rock climbing
walls at gymnasiums and outdoor parks, but
this was totally different. You have to find your
spots of access, determining exactly where to
grab on to get your hold or where to wedge
your foot in order to propel yourself up.
It is very physical, but very fun. We did sec-
tional climbs of 150 up and then back down. I
made three runs, but my son'did it six times. It
We then moved to another area for our first
try at rappelling. We walked up a hill and then
were faced with a 75-foot cliff straight down to
slsBEBssaap ~BI~~ V.g~:,,l''is 8""~
Gregory Smith and son Parker tackle a waterfall on a recent outdoor adventure trip.
Joe secured the ropes, got me into my har-
ness and, after a brief instruction, basically
said, "Go ahead."
Standing on the edge of that cliff, it takes a
lot of trust in the rope to simply lean back and
start lowering yourself down. Within my first
10 feet of descent', Joe yells down to me, "You
-seem a little tense," which of course was
almost comical. I thought, "Of course, I'm
tense. I'm dangling 75 feet in the air with my
spine pointed straight to the ground."
However, I did become more comfortable
and, after a couple of runs, it became quite
enjoyable. Parker loved it as well and actually
seemed less nervous than I did.
Day two would involve what is considered
"canyoneering." This basically was a nice hike
through the Cougar Canyon forest, climbing
up the mountain to find a river and then mak-
ing your way out,. following it downstream.
We came to a beautiful waterfall with only
one way down, rappelling. It was fantastic. I
was much more comfortable at this point and
climbing down with the water rushing beside
me was absolutely breathtaking. Parker did
great and Joe was very happy for him as well,
telling him he was the youngest to ever navi-
gate the climb.
Caving would fill the next day. We traveled
about an hour and a half into Johnson City,
Tenn., to explore Worley's Cave. Our trek
would take us four and a half hours to travel a
mile and a half. It was like being on the moon.
With only a helmet and a headlamp we
made our way through the cave. It was a very
physical journey; we had to watch each step in
order to avoid tripping, falling at times hav-
ing to climb up some 15 feet and crawling.
Lots and lots of crawling and lots of tight
spaces. At times we had to crawl flat on our
.. Ill. -,through an opening of just 14 inches
for about 50-60 feet.
By the end, we were tired and extremely
muddy but were thrilled with the experience.
Our final outing was a little less strenuous,
whitewater rafting on the French Broad River.
While the surroundings are absolutely gor-
geous and calming, there were class two. and
three rapids to quicken your pulse.
This was a really good way to end the trip.
We contemplated adding a mountain biking
outing at the last minute, but were simply too
tired for more.
This was a great trip and I would highly
recommend it to anyone looking to do some-
thing a little different and a little outside their
