ity wants county



to help pay light bill
AlrUAHCI DADMNI[ -f


News-Leader


City Manager Michael Czymbor
has asked the county to pay for street-
lights on county roads within city lim-
its:
County officials diplomatically
avoided answering that request when
asked about it Monday night, but
their drift was clear: Fat-chance.
The city, working with Florida
Public Utilities, recently completed
a map and audit of all streetlights in
the city. It found there are 84 street-
lights on six county-maintained roads
inside the city, Czymbor said.
The annual electrical bill for these
lights is $12,712; the city manager
wrote in a July 19 letter to County


Manager Ted Selby.
"The city has paid the bill for those
street lights for years but can no
longer afford to do so and is looking
for assistance from Nassau County
to pay for a service that directly ben-
efits your jurisdiction," Czymbor.
wrote.
The lights are located in city
neighborhoods on 14th, Citrona,

Jasmine, Sadler and Beaunet streets,
according to an email from Rex
Lester, city maintenance superin-
tendent, to Czymbor.
Selby said he had forwarded the
letter to commissioners and had not
yet discussed it with them. Other than
raised eyebrows, he declined com-

City: Lend a hand, help pay


for your neighbor's utilities


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


The city has a new program for those who want to lend
a neighborly hand to local residents having trouble pay-
ing their utility bills.
The recently initiated "Love Your Neighbor Dohation
Program" was announced by a donation application that
went out with the city's last round of 8,500 utility bills.
Donations as low as $1-5 can be added to utility bills
on a monthly contribution basis, or residents can make
a one-time contribution in any amount.
According to Utility Billing Supervisor Melissa
Howard, the city program operates in partnership with the
Salvation Army. Utility customers who are having trouble
paying their bill must be evaluated by the Salvation Army
to receive funds from the program. Customers must meet
eligibility and residency requirements, she said.
"Any client or customer who needs assistance will
have to go through the process," Howard said. The city


will refer needy customers to the Salvation Army, or cus-
tomers in need can contact the organization directly,
Howard said. Funds from this program are available to
customers once yearly, she said.
"We have (needy) customers coming in every day,
and we disconnect service two or three times a week,"
Howard said. "Some call in and say they are justso finan-
cially challenged. You know this person needs help.
Anyone in need is able to use the program."
Howard said the city was hoping it would be able to
help eight to 10 needy families per month, but does not
yet know how much money will be coming in. Donations,
which are placed in a non-interest-bearing account, should
be available for needy customers beginning in August.
Anyone interested in donating to the Love Your
Neighbor program may call 277-7390 or email
mhoward@fbfl.org. Those having trouble paying their
utility bill may go directly to the Salvation Army at 410 S.
Ninth St. and fill out a qualification form, or call 321-0435.

More local, less



state control for



24,000 acres


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
unanimously approved Monday night
an agreement with the state that gives
local government more control over a
proposed 24,000-acre residential and
commercial development. The agree-
ment was touted as "historic," the.first
such use of new rules approved this
spring by the Florida Legislature at
the behest of new Gov. Rick Scott. .
TerraPointe, Rayonier's real estate
Sarm, will develop the East Nassau
Comprehensive Planning Area, stretch-
ing from Chester Road west to just
beyond US 17 and north of AlAto the
.St. Marys River, over the next five
decades. It could include mamnfactur-
ing plants, businesses, shops, conser-
vation areas and homes for up to 56,000
people, according to the plan.
"Years from now, people can say
this was really an incredible plan that
had never been done before," said
Mike Mullin, former county attorney
who now represents the developer.
'There are no giveaways in this,"
Mullin said of the new agreement,
which makes TerraPointe "your part-
ner" in planning the development's
future, he told commissioners.
"It does not ease any burdens or
put any more burdens on," said Walter
Fufidio, county growth management.
director.
But Gov. Scott won election after
promising a reduction in state regula-
tions, especially in growth manage-
ment, and the Legislature approved a

BAPRY HOLLOWAY

bill in May that restructures state over-
sight and eliminates numerous rules
and regulations for growth.
The "sector plan" now will not have
to be considered or approved by the
Northeast Florida Regional Planning
Council. Nor will it have to clear hur-
dles by various state agencies that have
looked at such large development plans
over the past 25 years. In the end, the
state Department of Community
Affairs, or a successor agency, will
have much more limited powers to
curb the development. State law now
legally presumes that local govern-
ment is best capable of making such
decisions.
"The process before was a very
detailed process;" said Brian Teeple,
executive director of the Northeast
Florida Regional Planning Council. It
considered regional impacts rather
than "focusing on very local things," he
said.
"We hope that Nassau County coor-
dinates with us so we can provide them

City strategic plan


is moving forward


SMICHAEL PARNELL
News Leader
The city is redefining its Forward
Fernandina plan in response to com-
ments from the public.
Community Development Director
Marshall McCrary suggested that to
City Manager Michael Czymbor in a
memo analyzing the comments the
city received about the plan before a
public hearing Monday night.
"At the least, our review finds the
current draft could be revised to bet-
ter define costs for projects, to better
evaluate potential phasing/partnering
opportunities and to establish report-
ing opportunities and requirements
which demonstrate a commitment to
public advisement on a regular basis,"
McCrary wrote in a memo July 20.
The plan now envisions spending


about $9.6 million on purchase and
renovation of the downtown post
office, Front Street rehabilitation and
a railroad crossing at Alachua Street,
waterfront parks and a new library.
A chart sent to city commission-
ers Friday lists these proposed expen-
ditures: post office, $3.85 iiilli,.n, Front
Street rehabilitation, $2.88 million;
waterfront parks, $1.4 million; Alachua
Street opening, $767,500; new library,
$614,000; and Centre Street plan,
$51,250. Existing city funds and grants
would be used for the post office proj-
ect; funding sources for the other proj-
ects are yet to be identified.
The city heard more public com-
ments at a hearing Monday and has
scheduled a workshop for 5 p.m.
Tuesday in City Hall to refine and

COUNTY
Continued from 1A
with technical assistance," he
said. "It's a very big undertak-
ing for a local government,"
especially as local govern-
ments, like state and federal
governments, are cutting
expenses and shedding staff.
The plan still must comply
with the county's
Comprehensive Plan and will
go through the county planning
process, including numerous
public hearings, said Mike Bell,
director of external affairs for
Rayonier. Each "detailed spe-
cific area" of a thousand acres
will be subject to review, he
said.
"We have been subject to
too much piecemeal develop-
ment," Bell said, noting that the
large-scale plan sets aside more
than half of the acres for con-
servation and will include
parks, hiking and biking trails.
The new agreement, which
was being negotiated by the
state and county as late as
Monday, replaces previous
rules that governed
Developments of Regional
Interest. The TerraPointe plan
was conceived within the past
decade under the more strin-
gent rules governing DRIs.
There was no debate about
the agreement Monday night.
Only one citizen, Michele
Kling, spoke against it, and she
did so based on her concern
that it may represent an effort
by the so-called "Agenda 21" to
concentrate wealth and power
in-the hands of a "progressive
elite."
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson offered to meet with
Tea Party groups to reassure
them about the plan's intent
Commissioner Barry
Holloway was enthusiastic
about it. "This is the future of
Nassau County. It will provide'
thousands of jobs... make this
a better place to live, with a bet-
ter quality of life."
Commissioner Danny
Leeper hailed it as "a chance
to get it right in Nassau County
.. a quality development."
"I think we have an excel-
lent partner here with
TerraPointe and Rayonier,"
Commissioner Steve Kelley
said. The development will
"respect natural resources
while providing economic
development," he said.
Commission Chair Walter
Boatright reminded.that 40.
years ago another development
was opposed by some local res-
idents "because it was going to
just ruin this county." That
development, Amelia Island
Plantation, is viewed today as an
economic engine that pre-
serves environmental values,
he noted.
The proposed East Nassau
development may possibly
include a new resort along the
St. Marys River, luxury and
middle-class single-family
homes, condos and commer-
cial and manufacturing centers
on what is n6w largely
Rayonier-owned pine tree for-
est. Infrastructure issues
remain to be decided, such as
highways and street plans,
since the area has only a few,
mostly dirt, roads. Pieces of the
plan will come before the coun-
ty commission for approval as
the development progresses.
A prime area for manufac-
turing or commercial develop-
ment is the so-called "golden
triangle" that lies between 1-95,
US 17 and A1A and offers
access to rail, roads, ports and
the regional airport. "The
essence of this . is'job cre-
ation," Bell said.
Rather than a bedroom com-
munity, this plan could generate
employment for people who
live within the area, he said.
"These are prime assets to
grow jobs."

MeetingTuesday
The city commission is tentatively scheduled to meet
Tuesday at 5 p.m. at City Hall to discuss the Forward
Femandina strategic plan. Tke discussion may be
moved to the regular meeting at 6 p.m. that night.

COMMENTS Continued from 1A
debate the plan. Approval c6uld come at a commission meet-
ing Aug. 16.
Below is a sample of the comments received before the
public hearing. The complete collection of comments can be
found at www.fbfl.us/F2.
"For many in this community, it's all about money their
money. But many of these people who complain about pay-
ing taxes forget that unlike many of the places they came
from, Florida has no income tax, no vehicle inspection require-
ments, no annual personal property taxes on automobiles,
boats, campers, etc. In short, most of them pay less taxes over-
all to live here than somewhere else. Those of us who home-
steaded awhile back pay extremely low ad valorem taxes in
comparison to our more recent neighbors. We have even less
to complain about when it comes to taxes. Therefore, I urge
you to not let your adoption of the plan be influenced by those
who would have us cut more money and personnel from
the city budget." Suanne Thamm -
"I support the plan let's get on with the funding!!!"
-Dee Torre
"If we hope our community becomes a center for good
learning and bright young individuals, a solid community
library will help show the way." -John P Betsch
"Fernandina Beach is not broke, going broke, or in any
way in decline as a desirableplace to live or visit. However,
we could experience a decline if we are not good stewards of
our current assets. Doing nothing means allowing time to take
its toll, leading to deterioration and a downward spiral:"
-Mark and Donna Paz Kaufinan
"Great cities have great public institutions and we need a
new library.... A downtown library will also enhance down-
town economic activity. Finally, I recommend that we 'think
big' with regards to the library. Let's plan for a library that
will serve us for 20 years or moree" Mike Spino
"I do not think a move to 402 Centre St. is a good move.
The city should immediately earmark the $250,000-$300,000
to repair the roof, HVAC and plumbing issues of the current
(library) building. The city has a poor history of maintaining
its facilities as illustrated in how this building has deterio-
rated." -Dave Lott
"I strongly oppose any plan to take on additional debt, espe-
cially without voter approval. If issuing debt is a direction that
is ultimately chosen by the city, then this must be on the bal-
lot for citizens to decide. To do so unilaterally without a vote,
is irresponsible." -Kenneth Wilson
"I agree that the post office is an important and historic
building that needs, to be preserved. The facade is falling
down..The federal government owns the building don't we
have codes that require them to repair? I have been by many
federal buildings and'none are allowed to fall into the state
of disrepair of this building." -Sue Girard
"In regards to acquiring the post office downtown under
the agreement that I have read about in the News-Leader, I
think it is a very foolish and costly exercise. I cannot imag-
ine anyone with a decent business sense that would think this
was a good deal for the city or its taxpayers." -RobertAkhar
"The city should be looking to tighten its belt and definitely
NOT increase any taxes or fees because of millions in unnec-
essary expenditures. I do not wish the city to undertake
ANY of the projects ini this draft strategic plan until the econ-
omy improves." -JoeAnderson
"Our nation's economy is a mess. This mess is only going
to filter down to the state, county and then to city government
Instead of dreaming up ways to spend more of the taxpayers'
money, you should be finding ways to save the taxpayers'
money." Stephen Chapin ,"
S"PtiPchas( ol l he p-,.t office and a new library would be
nice, but not now, and not on the backs of the residents and
businesses of Fernandina Beach." SeveZercher
"I am writing in strong protest of the city borrowing
money for any project. It is ridiculous that anyone would
consider going into debt in this economy, especially with so
many people out of work and struggling." -Jesse Duke
"I agree that improvements on Eighth Street and on the
waterfront are aesthetically needed but I have several mis-
givings about the plan. ... The return on the investment is
unclear and without a better estimate of the benefits of the
project it makes the expenditure difficult to support."
-HenryRodeffer
"We don't want projects, and plans that on paper (and in
future visions) look attractive, but that would greatly escalate,
the city's obligations." Steve Shap
"Due to the economic hardship for all citizens of
Fernandina Beach, except for city employees, it is imperative
that additional liabilities be curtailed until further notice. If
the commission wants to be viewed as something other than
'do nothing,' then they need to downsize city government'
Giving pay raises when taxpayers are losing their jobs is
very insensitive and stupid." Karen Hurbean
"No to a new building. The library cannot even afford new
books." Lary Cook
S"The city should not be borrowing additional monies. All
of the supposed five goals should be suspended until we are
on sounder economic footing." -RussellJahn
"I am a retiree, living on a fixed income. I am opposed to
visionary committee's expendituresthat will increase taxes."
CarolB. Floyd
"I am completely against the strategic plan. In these hard
economic times we do not need to borrow any money (even
if the interest rate is low) and do any of the things in the strate-
gic plan." Dorothea Stilliwell
"I appreciate all the work done on the Forward Fernandina
strategic plan.... : I think it's a good start. Seeing the city com-
mission and management work to develop a plan to actually
make things happen is a good sign." -Evelyn McDonald

VIEWPOINTRoBET E SANCHEZ/JAMES MADISON INSTITUTE


Batten down your wallets


The Atlantic hurricane sea-
son officially began on June 1,
and once again the weather
experts are forecasting a very
active season, with more
major storms than in a typical
year. What the experts cannot
precisely forecast is whether
Florida will be in the path of
any of these storms.
On the other-hand, experts
who have studied Florida's
property, insurance market
are fully able to forecast pre-
cisely what could happen if
one big storm or a series of
lesser storms were to strike
this vulnerable peninsula: It
would cause a financial disas-
ter.
Here's why: With a politi-
cally manipulated regulatory
climate having caused several
large national property insur-
ers to reduce their exposure
in Florida, the government-
operated Citizens Property
Insurance initially formed to
be the state's "insurer of last
resort" has become the
state's largest property insur-
er.
Unfortunately, if storm
damage were widespread,
Citizens would not have


If one big hurricane were to strike Florida,
it would cause a financial disaster.


enough money on hand to
reimburse all of its clients for
their losses, and neither
would it have enough reinsur-
ance which is insurance for
insurers to cover all of the
losses.
To pay its claims then,
Citizens would need hastily to
borrow billions of dollars. It
would pledge to repay these
loans by imposing surcharges
- really taxes by another
name on every Florida prop-
erty insurance policy and auto
insurance policy. That could
amount to one of the largest
single tax hikes in Florida his-
tory.
The state would have no
alternative, though, because.
failing to pay the claims would
be disastrous-for Floridians
who had counted on'Citizens'
coverage, and failing to repay
the borrowed money would
destroy Florida's carefully cul-
tivated credit rating, which


allows the state to borrow at
favorable interest rates.
The 2011 Igl'islature'did
accomplish some helpful
reforms concerning property
insurance, including a phased-
in crackdown on the rampant
fraud and abuse associated
with homeowners' bogus
claims of sinkhole damage.
Yet the state's vulnerable
position with respect to
Citizens looms as a much
more significant problem, so
perhaps it would be helpful to
note what the 2011
Legislature did to address this
problem. It can be summed
up in four words: Nothing.
Zero. Zilch. Nada.
Former Gov. Charlie
Crist's populist policies
arguably contributed to the
regulatory climate that caused
so many major insurers to flee
the state, so we wouldn't want
his successor to emulate his
policies. However, given the

Legislature's inaction on
Citizens, there is' one Crist
gesture that he might emu-
late.
In 2007, Crist's first year in
office, he took part in a trade
mission to Israel. While in
Jerusalem he went to the
Western Wall and inserted a
note with a prayer that by his
own account read, "Dear God,
Please protect our Florida
from storms and other diffi-
culties. Charlie."
Some will attribute
Florida's lack of significant
storm damage in recent years
to the governor's prayer, and
others will attribute if to sheer
luck, which can be interpreted
as shorthand for the seeming
randomness of natural disas-
ters. As the saying goes, the
rain falls on the just and the
unjust. Tornadoes too.
Sadly, however, whether
one has faith in prayer or in
Florida's continuing good
luck, those forces may be the
only hope left for Floridians as.
This storm season approaches
since lawmakers failed to
reform Citizens, leaving it a
glaring exception to free-mar-
ket principles and a fiscal dis-
aster waiting to happen.

icy director of The James
Madison Institute, a non-parti-
san think tank based in

VIEWPOINT/JEFF JOHNSON/AARP


Cut waste, not


seniors' benefits


In February, an AARP
survey showed that 44 per-
cent of Floridians age 50-plus
were so concerned about the
state's struggling economy
that they planned to delay
retirement. Of those who
said they planned to delay
retirement, one in four said
they planned never to retire.
That's a gripn picture,
showing an older Florida
that's pessimistic about its
retirement security Yet if
AARP took that same survey
again today, it might show
even more pessimism. And it
could be justified, if
Congress cuts a political deal
to pay the nation's bills that
could permanently sour your
retirement dreams.
The president and
Congress are considering a
deal to pay the nation's bills
that could cut billions from
Social Security and Medicare
benefits for today's seniors.
To help reduce the deficit,
some in Washington want a
,deal that includes raising
Medicare premiums, co-pays
and deductibles for today's
seniors, shifting costs to sen-
iors rather than lowering
costs throughout the health
care system.
Another proposal would
force better-off seniors to pay
more for Medicare as if it
were a welfare program.
These seniors already pay
more for their Medicare and
AARP is deeply concerned
that means-testing benefits
could erode the popular sup-


port that has helped keep
Medicare strong for more
than 45 years.
W'i-hiiiigt, i is also con-
sidering including a proposal
that could cut Social Security
by $112 billion over 10 years
by permanently reducing
Social Security cost-of-living
increases. This proposal is
particularly galling to older
Floridians, who have seen
shortcomings in the current
Social Security cost-bf-living
formula leave them strug-
gling with no cost-of-living
increase despite two years of
steadily rising costs for fuel,
food prescription drugs and
medical care.
AARP is fighting hard to
keep Congress from making
cuts to your retirement bene-
fits. In mid-July, AARP state-
level leaders and top-ranking
volunteers traveled to
Washington to meet face to
face with Florida members of
Congress and senators.
AARP volunteer Ken
Reinhardt and I urged
Florida's elected officials to
attack waste, fraud and abuse
in the federal budget, rather
than targeting your retire-
ment benefits.
AARP members have
poured more than 600,000
calls, e-mails and petitions
into the Capitol. AARP is run-
ning an aggressive series of
national television advertise-
ments to urge our 37 million
members nationwide to raise
their voices on this issue.
AARP's position is clear:
Congress should attack
waste, fraud and abuse in
federal spending rather than
targeting the Medicare and
Social Security benefits you
have earned. Call 1-888-722-
8514 to be connected to your
member of Cdngress toll-free
and urge them to attack
waste and fraud in federal
spending, rather than target-
ing your Medicare and Social
Security benefits.
No one disputes that
deficit reduction is very
important. But older
Floridians worked a lifetime.
for the benefits they receive.
They deserve to be able to
count on them.

SVIEWPOINT/PATRICA BORNS/FERNANDINA BEACH



Your property, for tl


At a recent city workshop,
Commissioner Eric Childers quoted
Thomas Jefferson: "The two ene- ,
mies of the people are criminals and
government, so let us tie the second down
with the chains of the Constitution so the sec-
ond will not become the legalized version of
the first." Childers was talking about the city's
new comprehensive plan, which proposes to
give local government unprecedented control
over private property. The plan comes up for a
vote on Tuesday at 6 p.m. Its most disturbing
*feature: A citywide archaeological preservation
policy that will especially harm individual prop-
erty owners.
The archeological preservation policy will
allow local government to restrict our proper-
ties without limit. Potentially, this will mean
that some of us will have to perform an archae-
ological survey on our lots costing upwards of
$10,000/lot before a building permit can be
issued. The basis for deciding which proper-
ties willbear this burden will be a "GIS predic-
tive model" or survey basically, a rehash of
old archeological surveys and other data to
"predict" areas where artifacts are most likely.
Your property may be among them if it's locat-,
ed on or near a shell mound, commonly found
in coastal areas.
Until now, the comprehensive plan has pro-
tected private property rights. For example, if.
your property is designated High Density
Residential (HDR), the comprehensive plan
guarantees you may build a home, or a neigh-
borhood business, and enjoy their use and


income. You also have the right to sell all or a
portion of your HDR property at a price you
determine, to someone willing to pay for those
same rights. The comprehensive plan war-
rants that the city has sufficient, appropriate
land for the HDR uses to which it says you are
entitled; and it guarantees that the city's land
development regulations will minimize barri-
ers to the development of your lots.
If the city restricts or burdens the use of
your property in any way, your rights are less-
ened, and so is the value of your property, to
others and yourself. Who will want to improve
or build on a lot that requires an archeological
survey costing $10,000? Who will want to buy
a lot so burdened? That is what the new arche-
ological preservation policy does: It allows the
city to place inordinate burdens on some prop-
erties.
While the city has always had the option of
implementing such policies in its land develop-
ment code, the comprehensive plan gives the
commission a legal shield behind which to '
enact them. With such regulations, the value
and use of specific properties will decrease,
such that their only "market" will be for a
developer or the city itself. It is a form of price
control: taking property by placing such a
severe burden on it that it is greatly devalued.
A measure of how intensely powers within
the city want this policy is that the Planning,
Advisory Board, ordinarily the most citizen-
friendly of boards, sent it up to the commission
with a few,,but not enough, changes. It will
take a very high scream level from the public


he taking

for the commissioners to vote down this policy
on Tuesday. Getting it into the comprehensive
plan makes it easier in the future for the city to
physically take property should it expand the
Community Redevelopment Area (CRA), as
has been proposed.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Taxpayerbeware
Last year in 2010 you may have
seen the signs with the nifty clause
"We Lower your Taxes." Many Nassau
County taxpayers received letters from
tax representatives stating that'for a
fee ranging from $100 to $250 and with
a percentage of return under a contract
provision, they promised to "lower
your taxes."
I was contacted by some of the indi-
viduals that had filed and had my staff
make contact with all of the property
owners that had entered into this
agreement of "We WILL lower your
taxes" with tax representatives. My
staff of appraisers and I found that in
most cases the property owners felt
that they had been taken advantage of.
One property owner had only sent
'his money in because they had "prom-
ised" to lower his taxes. When dis-
cussing the.value that the Property
Appraiser had placed on his property;
he stated, "I had'no problem with the
value, Ijust felt that the taxes could be
lower." In this instance the company
that promised to lower taxes had pre-
sented the 2009 value to the property
owner falsely, when the 2010 value
was the real value. at hand and was
less than the prior year. This particu-
lar case ended in the company tax rep-
resentative not even showing up at
the Value Adjustment Board hearing
or even submitting any data whatso-
ever thus an easy $175 for no work
accomplished.
The appraisers on staff indicated
that this was the response of most tax-
payers that 'they spoke with.
Concerned taxpayers did calland ask.
if the tax representatives even showed
up. The response was that of 235 peti-
tions filed by tax representatives, only
16 actually went before the Value
Adjustment Board for hearing, of those
only three had changes made by the
Value Adjustment Board magistrate.
I urge the Nassau .County citizens
and taxpayers to beware. I also would
encourage you to contact my office. I'
am elected by the people and that is .
who I serve, according to the
Constitution, statutes and laws of
Floiida. I took an oath, and I took it
seriously if my staff and I can make-
a change to the value, that is simply
what we do.
For more information please feel
free to call 491-7300 or visit our web-
site at www.nassatiflpa.com.
The Nassau County Property
Appraiser's Office will be mailing out
the Notice of Proposed Taxes, which
includes your 2011 value information,
the third week of August. The 2011
values will also be posted to our web-
site the first week of August. Please
feel free to visit the website and review
your information and call if you should

End is near?
Re: McGill vs. City of Fernandina
Beach ("City owes McGill another
$937,558 for attorney fees," July 15).
Don't mean.to gloat but a couple of
years ago I advised the city, in an opin-
ion letter to the editor, that the city
should cut its losses, pay McGill and
move on. At that time, the city had
lost at every hearing in the Circuit
Court and in the First District Court of
Appeal, and the tab was about $650,000
per side.
Now, the city met July 18 in closed
session with their present attorney to
determine whether to appeal the most
recent order from Judge (Brian) Davis


awarding.McGill.$937,000 in fees and
$195,000 in costs (these amounts do
not include the attorney fees for the
city).
When will it end? Will it ever end?
While it is good for my profession, it's

Thank you, Katie Wisner, for your
heartrending letter about your dad
losing his life to pancreatic cancer
(News-Leader, July 13).
Youtare a courageous woman-and
daughter.
Thank- you for encouraging us to
learn more about pancreatic cancer
'through Purple Stride.
As one who has studied nutrition,
informally, for over 25 years, I would
ask that your group truly, seriously,
concentrate on prevention through
alternative medicine.'
My cousin, Gene Smith, a professor
at Indiaha State University for over 40
years, battled pancreatic cancer 25 of
Those years under the mentoring of
Ruth Yale Long, a Houston nutrition-
ist.
Gene read her book Crackdown on
Cancer (1983, 1991) knowing he
had been given only three months to
live.
He totally changed what he ate and
drank ard began taking mega-amounts
of the 51 nutrients our bodies need;
according to Dr. Long, "We can die if
we'are without any one of these nutri-
ents for very long."
So many of us border on being mal-
nourished on and on in our lives.
Such hit or miss nutrition gives
such diseases as pancreatic cancer a
perfect climate in which to take over.
Thank you again, Katie, for inform-
ing us all about Purple Stride.
May the Lord continue to bless you
in your anointed work,

I am with Blocker's; Septic &

tors of a small homeless shelter on
14th Street, First Assembly of God.
Lately we have been struggling to feed
everyone. As you know the economy
has reached everywhere. I talked with
the owners of the Florida House Inn
and they said they have been looking
for a shelter to donate the leftovers.
Every day at 3 p.m. I go by and pick up
all their leftovers and deliver it to some
very appreciative clientele. What they.
are doing is incredible. May God be

Morelegal briefs,
SRe: "Legal briefs," July 20.
I feel that I must respond to the
letter concerning the ACLU. I don't
want to get into a tit-for-tat with the
gentleman, but he doesn't know what
he's talking about. The ACLU has
often been the last bulwark against
the tyranny of the majority that just
doesn't understand the Constitution,
especially the First Amendment. The
Constitution is about individual rights.
This is not a Christian nation. There
are people of many faiths or even no
faith whose rights are just as impor-
Stant. This country was founded as a
refuge from nations that imposed their
religion on their citizens.

SACLU for yourself. Don't take the
word of someone whose views are so
jaundiced he wouldn't know a consti-
tutional right if it hit him in the face.
I'm a proid member of the ACLU.

Ryan Smith replies
Since I am no longer affiliated with
the News-Leader in an official capacity,
I thought I would take it' upon myself
to correct a couple of the more glaring
inaccuracies in a recent letter con-
demning the ACLU ("Legal briefs,"
July 20). It isn't myself Ifeel the need
to defend Lord knows I have plenty
of faults but the organization that he
so harshly and inaccurately defames.
(The letter writer) believes that the
ACLU "has a lengthy history of ignor-
ing First Amendment rights of
Christians." Obviously, he has not done
an iota of actual research beyond regur-
gitation of the usual ultra-right-wing
talking points., If he had, he would
know that the ACLU has a lengthy his-
tory of defending the First Amendment
rights of all people, including
Christians. .
In 2001, the ACLU defended a stu-
dent whose yearbook quote had been
cut because it contained a Bible verse.
In*2002, it defended a pastor involved
with anti-abortion group Operation
Rescue after he was barred from par-
ticipating in a parade. For other exam-
ples, I direct him to the magazine I
used for my research. It's called
Christianity Today.
In addition to the above, the ACLU
has also defended such bleeding-heart
liberals as Rush Limbaugh. Indeed,
where will the Socialist.conspiracy end?
Of course, the ACLU has defended
some pretty repugnant groups. That's
its job. The purpose of the ACLU is
not, as (the writer) seems to think it
should be, to defend speech that every-
one considers acceptable. Indeed,
that's exactly the kind of speech that
needs the least defending. The pur-
pose of the ACLU is to defend the First
Amendment rights of all people, no
matter how repugnant or unpopular
their views may be.
So yes, I support the ACLU. I'm
glad someone is willing to fight the
unpopular battles. This country needs
an organization whose only purpose is
to defend the sacred freedoms
enshrined in the Constitution. The
ACLU is such a group, and with that
mandate comes the obligation to
defend the ugly as well as the beauti-
ful. I, for one, am proud to support
such a group. My answer to those who
Sask why I'm a member of the ACLU is


the same given by Michael Douglas in
the classic movie "The American
President": Why aren't you?

Avisitor's lament
I could see its slow march up the
beach, so I convinced myself to only
look to my left as if the monster on the
right did not exist. Sure, the blue green
water that I imagined wading in, now
brown grey, was not as attractive, but
I'm on vacation and that is a good
thing: Soon, tires clacking, incessant
beeping of reverse and overpowering
headlights erased my imaginings of
listening to waves in the moonlight.
Hey wait, I paid almost $350 a day for
a beach vacation, not a construction
site. It is not OK It is more like bait
and switch.
Beach' renourishment is a neces-
sary program, but. should be done
when it would impact the least During
January or February fewer people
would be in the water. Shame on you,
Amelia Island Plantation, for not nego-
tiating on a more appropriate project
date. Staying inside complaining to
the editor was not on my list of vaca-
tion plans.

Maybe we talk too much about our
grinding experiences of our family's
encounters with the biological brain
disorder that devastates us and not
about the National Alliance for the
Mentally Ill of Nassau County.
We met with the city communities
and helped to hire our first director,
Rachel Sutton. We helped to get her
office cleaned and furnished for open-
ing day. We paid for her cooperation
papers and bought her first computer.
Most of all we love and encourage
our members, especially Jo Heller,
who with much work and dedication
has helped by getting our Jo Heller
Transition House which houses clients
who need only a short stay to recu-
perate, and Nancy Phillips, who has
tirelessly helped us raise funds by raf-
fling a beautiful handmade quilt each
year and for introducing us to many
organizations.
We have three brain tissues donat-
ed to the University of Miami brain
bank. Dr. Deborah Mash is the direc-
tor.


We have a speaking bureau eageri
to speak on education, awareness and
brain research. We have approached
many of our local churches and we do:
appreciate the efforts of those who,
have responded. We need the faith of:
the community.
We give 95 clients at the idult con-i
gregation facility in Hilliard a brand:
new pair of shoes, socks, underwear,.

with a dollar inside. Those living alone
or with parent we:give a,$20 gift card:

We have a dental plan, funds for.
medication and sometimes travel-
expenses to doctors.
We, along with pro Sam' Alvarez,:
are sponsoring a golf tournament Aug.
20. The cost is $60. Shotgun start and.
a $100 buy-in. Food and prizes will be:
plentiful This tournament is in honor
of Doug Morris, who had a serious:
biological brain disorder. Through:

Stolen plant
To the person who stole the potted;
plant off my mom's grave:
My 90-year-old mother passed:
away recently and she was buried on:
July 18 in Bosque Bello Cemetery next:
to my dad. After struggling to say a few:
words at her graveside service, I:
placed a potted plant on her headstone.
next to a beautiful floral wreath on her:
gravesite. This is the same potted plant:
that you stole sometime .between.
Monday morning and Wednesdayi
evening, when I drove to the ceme-:
tery to see her grave again and to-
water the plant.
I can't imagine how you can live:
with yourself after stealing a potted:
plant from a fresh gravesite. But now:
that you have the plant, I hope that'
you will water it and take care of it:
like my mom used to take care of her-
plants. And I hope you appreciate the
pink color of the flowers because that:
was my mom's favorite color. One day
you will be judged for this act of dis-
respect, and I pray that somehow jus-i
tice will prevail.
Do you have a conscience? If so,
you should return the plant that you:
stole to my mother's grave.

A mighty hunter


The water level is unusual-
ly low in our backyard reten-
tion pond, what with the long-
standing drought and the
summer evaporative heat.
Most of the pond animals
seem to be doing all right, just
a smaller surface area and a
deeper bank to get to it. The
turtles and frogs and fish are
more concentrated, and the
fishing is easier at low water
levels for the waterbirds to
find.
Some critters are also tak-
ing advantage of the exposed
banks this year. Mud daubers
those pesky mud-nest-build-
ing wasps have chosen the
far bank as their excavation
site. As long as I care to watch
I can see wasps flying across
the pond into mud holes on
the other side and returning
to the side of my house with
mud to build with.
These wasps look fierce
but you pretty much have to '
step on them to get them to
sting. But for us, that's not as
hard to imagine as you might
:think. It turns out that some of
Sthese'wasps have built their
nests high inside our chim-
Sney, away from our prying
eyes, and power spray hoses,

soon enough we trace it to a
mud dauber, caught in the liv-
ing room, bouncing against
the windows and ceiling try-
ing to find a way out. It used
to be a regular task for us,
catching these wasps and
removing then.
But now we have help. As
some of you readers might

where we used to live), and
within a couple of weeks she
became a sociable, curious,
affectionate family member.
Dumela is not Masala, our
beloved old departed pet, but
her own personality is now
becoming clear,and she has
squirmed her place into our
hearts.
And now she's already
earning her keep. Dumela has
turned into a mighty hunter,
where mud daubers are con-
cerned, at least. Now, Dumela
hears the buzzing of a wasp
way before we do, and she's
off on a mission. With her,
head tilted towards the ceil-
ing, she follows the wasp
around all the rooms of the
house, sometimes bumping
into furniture she doesn't
notice, with her eyes to the
sky.'Nothing deters this deter-
mined cat from her chosen
prey. During her wasp mis-
sions, she pays no attention to
us when we call her, or even,
when we shake the bag of cat
treats. No, Dumela is a focus-
ed little animal; totally devoted
to the hunt Everything else
can wait! The wasp must be
caught!
Whenever it flies low with-
in her reach, Dumela is quick
with her paws to knock it
down to her level.
Surprisingly, she does not try
to eat the wasp, just disables it
and never seems to suffer
from a sting in the process.
Instead, once she has the bug


trapped with her paws, she
proudly sits next to it, stares
at it and calls out to us in her
baby-squeaky meow to come
get it.
I never knew we had so
many bugs in our house until
our mighty hunter Dumela
moved in with us. So far we've
found small dead roaches,
some spiders and various
other assorted tiny insects I
can't identify. Like most every-
one else here in Florida, we
hire a pest management com-
pany to keep our house free of
termites and other harmful
insects, and always before I
was satisfied that our home
was relatively insect-free.
But now that Dumela is.
around and prowling all kind
of finds show up in the morn-
ing on the living room rug.
I'm just waiting for the day
that my nocturnal prowl to the.
bathroom lahds my foot on
top of a discarded and dis-
abled wasp. I can hardly
blame the wasp if it stings me,
and I can hardly blame
Dumela for catching it in the
first place.
An indoor cat's life does
not have to be boring, as
young Dumela has proven to
us. And, with a young cat
patrolling the home, it is never
boring for us humans either!

'How healthy is


Nassau County?'


The Partnership for
Healthier Nassau, a collabora-
tive of 19 organizations, is con-
ducting a community-wide sur-
vey called "How Healthy is
Nassau County?"
The partnership's
Community Themes and
Strengths Committee, co-
chaired by Katrina Robinson-
Wheeler (Sutton Place
Behavioral Health) and Becky
DeBerry (Journey Church),
invites people who live in
Nassau County to participate
in the survey.
"The survey is a chance for
Nassau County residents to let
the partnership know what
they think about the health of
our county," said Robinson-
Wheeler. Residents' opinions,
along with other health data
and assessments, will be
reviewed and used to prepare
a multi-year countywide health


improvement plan.
All residents are encour-
aged to take part in the sur-
vey to let their opinions be
known through the online sur-
vey available through Aug. 20
at www.surveymonkey.com
/s/63DF6YS.
Paper surveys are also
available at the Nassau County

The Fernandina Beach
Police Department has announ-
ced that it was recently re-
accredited by the Commission
for Florida Law enforcement
Accreditation at a formal recog-
nition ceremony on June 30 in
Bonita Springs.
The department was first
awarded "accredited status" by
the Commission fpr Florida
Law Enforcement Accreditation
on Feb. 9,2005, during a formal
recognition ceirmony in Kiss-
immee. Last month's presenta-
tion represents the second suc-
cessful attempt to -retain
accreditation status, which is.
awarded for a period of three
-years.
Accreditation is a coveted
award that symbolizes profes-
sionalism, excellence, and com-'
petence within thelaw enforce-
ment community, said Police
Chief James Hurley. By insur-
ing that proper policies and pro-
cedures are in place and that
all facets of police operations
are maintained within accept-
able legal and professional lim-
its, the accreditation process
improves the ability to prevent
and control crime by increasing
the efficiency and effectiveness'


of delivery of law enforcement
services, he said.
"The accreditation process
requires an in-depth review of
every aspect of the agency, to
include administration, organi-
zational structure, manage-
ment, supervision and opera-
tions," Hurley said in a press
release. "Our agency is com-
pelled to operate within specif-
ic guidelines and is accountable
to the Commission for Florida
Law Enforcement Accredita-
tion, which conducts on-site vis-
its and examines'compliance
with 276 different performance
standards. Our police depart-
ment must stay within those
compliance standards set forth
bythe commission in order to
retain its accreditation status,
and must then pass systematic
reviews by outside assessors.


"Accreditation serves to
enhance general and specific
understanding of the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department, our goals and
objectives, as well as our role as
a community partner. Citizen
confidence in our policies and
practices, as viewed and docu-
mented by our state-mandated
oversight board, has provided
us with a strong foundation
from which to, grow our com-
munity policing philosophy and
to increase the active partici-
pation of-local stakeholders.
"As an added bonus,
Fernandina Beach Police
Department employees natu-
rally take great pride in the fact
that their agency is fully accred-
ited, knowing that it represents
'the very best in\law enforce-
ment."

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Angela
Daughtry of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office and the city ofF enandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, notguilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville.
Credit card scheme
A Georgia man told city
police July 20 that someone
from Fernandina Beach
defrauded him of several hun-
dred dollars in a credit-card
scheme.
According to a police report,
the man said he received a call
July 19 from a man who claimed
to be a representative of Visa.
The caller offered the man a
$10,000-limit credit card, but
said he would first need to
deposit $448. The man sent the
deposit by Western Union to a
courier.
Hours later, according to the
report, the man received anoth-
er call from the representative,
who said a mistake had been,
made and he would need to
'send another $350 to secure the
credit card. The man conse-


quently sent that amount by
MonIeyGram to another courier.
The representative then
called the man the next day and
requested another .350. At that
time, the man told police, he
realized he had been lied to and
refused to send any more
money.
The man told police he was
able to recall the phone num-
ber used by the representative,
and his phone service told him
the number was placed from an
address at Second and Ash
streets in Fernandina Beach.
Police have no further infor-
mation, according to the report.

News-Leader


HattieMorris, one of the
National Alliance for the
Mentally Ill, Nassau Affiliate's
most fervent supporters,
knows only too well how men-
tal illness impacts a family.
Her son Doug was affected
with schizophrenia and was
hospitalized 13 times.
"That's why I joined," said
Morris. "Our son came home
from college, unannounced,
with a full-blown schizo-
phrenic episode in 1976. I
floundered around trying to
get help. I went to the chief of
police and he said he didn't
know anything about mental
illness. I went to my family
physician and he told me to
Baker Act him."
Morris endured three
more Baker Acts (emergency
or involuntary commitments,
named for Florida State Rep.
Maxine Baker who sponsored
the bill).
Recalling one particularly
emotional incident when her
front yard was full of police,
she said, 'The neighbors were
gawking and you can't blame
them, and I sat in the yard
with my inadequate loud voice
and said, 'Please, God. You
promised.' That's the only
prayer I could get out."
Channeling her energy


'It can be done. Mental illness
can be controlled, just like
diabetes or any other illness.'

into advocating for other fami-
lies in similar circumstances,
Morris and the other founders
of the Nassau County NAMI
hired Rachel Sutton as direc-
tor.
"She was nothing but a
godsend, an angel in dis-
guise," says Morris.
The National Alliance for
the Mentally Ill, Nassau
Affiliate (NAMI) has been
providing help and hope for
the mentally ill in Nassau
County since 1987.
A description drawn up by
the group at that time said,
"There is a time and a season


for all things. Apparently, the
time has come for the families
and friends of our mentally ill,
mental health professionals
and the public to build a
bridge of communication.
Let's help the last and largest
group of forgotten people, the
mentally ill of our communi-
ty!"
Eventually Doug Morris
achieved stability through the
correct medication.
"It took.about six months
and then a year later, it was
like turning on a light bulb,"
said his mother.
Doug Morris worked for
the state of Florida as a main-
tenance man at Fort Clinch
State Park. He died in
December 2009 of a heart
attack.
"He was such a sweet-
heart," recalls his mother.
"When his dad was ill and we
had to have a nurse, Doug
was the only one who could
lift him. And if I dropped
something in the bedroom,
he'd be right there to pick it

When not helping to care
for his parents, Morris found
a great deal of enjoyment on
the golf course.
"He loved to play .:-.. ,i He
started playing when he was
only five years old. "
He joined the Fernandina

Episcopal

drops 'high'
Episcopal High School of
Jacksonville announced
recently that the school will
now be known as Episcopal
School of Jacksonville.
"What distinguishes.the
Episcopal experience at its
essence has not changed,"
said Dale Regan, head of
school. "By changing the
name of the school, we are
seeking to create one better
representative of who we
truly are and what we have to
offer as a college-preparatory
institution."
The Episcopal experience
has included a full middle
school program for. many
years, by offering sixth
through eighth grades. Using
"high school" in its name
does not capture all the pro-
grams the school has to offer.
'The new name, Episcopal
School of Jacksonville, will
help Episcopal seek to attract
families seeking middle-
school opportunities for their
children," Regan said.
Finally, greater emphasis
ori the location name,
"Jacksonville," will anchor the
school's identity without
departing markedly from the
school's original name.
"The name Episcopal
School of Jacksonville, whe-
ther referred to as Episcopal.
or eventually, ESJ, is one-of
distinction," Regan,said.
"We want this 'school to
be recognized not only in
Northeast Florida, but nation-
ally, for its quality of teaching,
the achievements of its stu-
dents and the excellence in
its programming.
'The difference our stu-
dents experience here the
complete and balanced col-
lege preparatory program of
academics, arts and athletics,
with an emphasis on spiritual
development cannot be
found anywhere else in
Jacksonville."

p .i Wth most of us in the work force, it is difficult to.have the time to put into practice what is
necessary to raise our game a level or two. However, it is this practice that will improve
our consistency in the long term and we can practice different approaches even at home
to make progress. One of the best ways is to use your mirror at home to check on your
set up, grip, ball position, alignment and posture.Another method to consistency isto have
the same routine before every shot We watch the professionals and every time, they go
through the same set of motions before a shot This practice should be followed by the amateur golfer
as well to improve our comfort level. Finally, we can not swing one dub harder or softer than the others.
Practice keeping the same tempo for all the dubs in the bag and the results will be positive.

Croft top junior angler in kingfish tourney

he local fishing IF .


I team "Bear Croft,"
captained by Bear
IT Croft, reeled in
many of the top honors dur-
ing the 201.1 Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament. Honors includ-
ed first-place junior angler
and wahoo and third-place
aggregate.
"I just knew that we were
going to have a great week of
tournament
fishing
beginning
Tuesday
when
Mathew
Farlow and I
enjoyed a
late inorning
of saltwater
SOUTDOORS fishing,"
Bear Croft
said. "We
Terrylacoss had just
begun to
slow troll a full spread of live
baits when we enjoyed a
triple-header, including a sail-
fish, dolphin and one king
mackerel.
"Mathew is an excellent
fisherman and we soon had
all three species at boat side.
"During the junior angler
tournament, we had only one
Skingfish bite, but it was the
right one.-My granddaughter,
Kaylee Croft, reeled in the
largest kingfish at 38.5
pounds."
Fishing aboard Bear
Croft's M'ercury-powered
Yellowfin kingfish boat were
team anglers Donald Skipper,
Phillip Garbarini, Robert
Haddock, Kevin Blanton,
Steve Barnard and junior-
*anglers Kaylee Croft, Zak
Skipper and Kyle Horgan.
During the last day of the
tournament, Garbarini reeled
in a massive 71:85-pound
wahoo that eventually won
top honors in the wahoo cate-
gory.
Their two king mackerel
weighed a respective 57.6
pounds, good enough for
third-place honors in the
kingfish aggregate division.
Obviously it was a great
week of fishing for team
"Bear Croft," which is also a
past big fish winner of'the

the first lay of the event.
Johnson skippered his
Mercury-powered, 17-foot
Boston Whaler, properly
named the "Traveler," to a
43.25-pound king mackerel
Thursday. The big king hit a
double-pogy kingfish rig at


7:20 a.m. The "Traveler"
weighed in a 34.4-pound king
mackerel during the final day
of the two-day tournament for
top honors in the aggregate
division. Their winning
weight was 77.65 pounds. Bob
Johnson's team "Traveler"
also won big kingfish honors
during the 2009 Fernandina
Beach Kingfish Tournament.
Jacksonville's Eddie
McGowan reportedly king-
fished north during the final
day of the tournament and


hooked up to the tourna-
ment's largest king mackerel,
weighing 53.35 pounds, just a
few pounds of the tourna- -
Sment's all-time record king-
fish. The tournament winner
hit a ribbonfish trolled with
the aid of a downrigger.
The largest kingfish was
worth a Mercury-powered

the crush of a modern world. We enjoyed com-
fort food offered at friendly village stops and,
always, a delicious, cold, thirst-quenching
beer.
Our journey ended in the Czech Republic's
crown jewel- Prague. Prague is a show-stop-
per. It is always mentioned as a favorite city by
experienced travelers. For more than 1,000
years Prague has been a political, cultural and
economic centre of Europe during its 1,100-
year existence. It is a city of bridges and cathe-
drals and a surprise around every corner. We
spent our days exploring the city and its many
treasures. Our city walking was not leg
stretching, it was stop-start as we dodged
motorcycles and traffic.
The Czech Republic offered a very differ-
ent kind of trip. It was more about history than
it was about walking. So how to you digest 800
years of history in one short week? A bite at a
time, or should I say a step at a time?

Barbecue fun
The Fernandina Beach
Rotary Club celebrated its year-
end with a barbecue and
awards ceremony at Chem Cell.
In addition to more than 70
members, family and friends,
the club welcomed Rotary
District 6970 Governor Cynde
Covington and her husband,
Barry. Outgoing President Trip
Clark reviewed the achieve-
ments and milestones of the
past year, in-cluding the club's
85th anniversary, 75 years of
support for Boy Scout Troop 89
and 45 years of sponsoring the
Fernandina Beach High School
Interact Club. The club also
donated more than $27,000 to
the Rotary Foundation for its
projects around the world.
Clark also recognized the
Board of Directors for its sup-
port and gave special recogni-
tion to the Scholarship
Committee for selecting local
high school graduates for some
$15,000 in scholarships.
Aaron Bean, bottom right
with Clark, was awarded the
Service Above Self Award for
his years of service to the club,
most recently as program direc-
tor. Melanie Ferreira, middle
right, was honored as Rotarian
of the Year for her strong sup-
port of the club and her work
as public relations director.
The highlight came when
Covington announced the
club's recognition by the
Rotary Foundation as a 100
percent Paul Harris
Foundation Club, an honor
achieved by only five percent of
all Rotary Clubs in the U.S. To
become a Paul Harris Fellow, a
Rotarian must donate $1,000
to the foundation. The
Fernandina club raised more
than $9,700 in just six weeks
so the new Paul Harris Fellows
could be recognized before the
club's year-end.
Members honored as new
fellows, above, are Vince
SCavallo, Trip Clark, Marlyne
Clark, Clyde Davis, Phyllis
Davis, Doug Geib, Kim
Harding, Jim Hook, John
