$5.9 million



bank loan


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
may vote Tuesday to take out a $5.9
million bank loan to pay for the first
phaseofthe Forward Fernandina plan.
That would finance improvements over
three years to the Amelia River water-
front park and Front Street, open
Alachua Street across the railroad and
help move the city library to Centre
Street.
A resolution to be considered does
not specify how the loan would be
repaid other than to stipulate that it
would not come from property taxes.
The loan might be repaid from a fran-
chise fee levied on each city resident's
monthly Florida Public Utilities bill.
A 20-year loan could cost residents
up to $1.91 for every $100 of their elec-
tricity bill, City Manager Michael
Czymbor said. That could be reduced
over the years if the city obtains grant
funding or if revenue comes in from its
Community Redevelopment Area. The
city now charges a $4.50 per $100 fran-
chise fee on FPU bills and has author-
ity to charge 3 r much iJ- sl
The financial plan would divide the
revenue bond loan into three parts:
$2.5 million in 2011, $2.4 million in
2012 and $1 million in 2015. Czymbor
said the city's annual debt would be
between about $550,000 and $465,000,
depending on the interest rate and
length of the loan.
The Forward Fernandina plan
includes development of waterfront
parks, rehabilitation of Front Street,


moving the library to Centre Street,
opening the Alachua Street rail cross-
ing and other downtown improve-
ments.
Separately, the city has set aside
$350,000-to stabilize the downtown
post office. Though renovation of the
old post office is included in the long-
range Forward Fernandina plan, it is
not included in this i -i iph;a:_.
Tuesday's finance workshop fea-
tured Edward Stull, managing director
of First Southwest, who presented
financing alternatives for the strategic
plan; and George Smith of Bryant
Miller Oliver, who gave an overview on
ways the city could use the Community
Redeveopment Area to bring in fund-
ing for the project.
Funding sources presented by Stull
included "pay as you go," grant fund-
ing, bank financing, pooled loan financ-
ing and bond financing.
Commissioners made it clear at previ-
ous meetings that they did not want to
use a general obligation debt, which
would require voter approval.
"Financial challenges have gotten
worse since we last spoke in March,"
Stull told commissioners. Fernandina
Beach was not affected as much as
some other cities, he said, but there is
a continued decline in property values
and gas tax revenues have also gone
down, as well as impact fees because of
the decline in construction.
"The fact that the city has been able
to live within its means has been key,"
Stull said. "Some municipalities are

County won't help


city pay
GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
voted unanimously Monday to deny
payment to the city of Fernandina
Beach for costs of streetlights on coun-
ty roads that are within city limits.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
asked County Manager Ted Selby for
the county's assistance in a July 19 let-
ter, but County Commissioner Barry
Holloway lobbed Selby a question of
his own "Who asked for them to be
put up?"
"My understanding is, and it's
always been told to me, that the city
requested that these be installed and
we had to work with the county to get
(Department of Transportation) per-
mission to install them," said Selby.
"But this happened years and years
ago so I don't have any evidence to
prove that."
Selby acknowledged that the deci-
sions were made long before any of
the current county officials took office.
"The city has paid the bill for those
sltcetlighl h for years but can no longer
afford to do so and is looking for assis-
tance fiom Nassau County to pay for a


eight bilf
service that directly benefits your juris-
diction," Czymbor wrote in his letter to
the county manager.
Recalling instances a few months
back when the county worked with
neighborhoods and Florida Public
Utilities to get streetlights installed,
County Commissioner Danny Leeper
said this was done at the expense of the
homeowner associations involved.
Leeper who was in vehement
opposition to the city manager's pro-
posal-said that while the county may
have worked with public entities to
have lights installed, it has neither
directed the installation of, nor
approved payment for, streetlights.
"The county's not in the streetlight
business and I don't know what the
rest of the board feels like, but I'm not
willing to pay the city any money for
streetlights," said Leeper. "I know
(Czymbor) says in here it directly ben-
efits the jurisdiction. I say it does not
benefit our jurisdiction, it just happens
to be along the county roadway.... My
motion would be to deny any consid-
eration of this request."

Baptist Nassau are teaming up
again this year to present the
Amelia Challenge (AC2011), a
spirited competition between
multiple teams of four in a vari-
ety of physical and mental chal-
lenges.
The event will take place
Saturday, Nov. 12 at Fernandina
Beach High School and will
include biking, running, walking
and mental challenges.
AC2011 is organized by the
Rotary Club of Amelia Island
Sunrise to raise funds for local,
regional and international caus-
es and emphasize the impor-
tance of exercise -to staying
healthy.
While Baptist Nassau will be
the title sponsor again this year,
more sponsors are needed and
teams of four are encouraged
to sign up now for the
November event.
"Everyone had a ball last
year!" says Rotary President
Katey Breen. "We exercised,
tested our limits, met new peo-
ple and, best of all, generated
several thousands of dollars
for local nonprofits. Everyone

Florence G. Delaney, a lifelong
Langhorne, Pa. resident, passed away
peacefully at Quality Health, Fernandina
Beach, Fla. on August 7,2011. She was 88.
She is preceded in death by her hus-

ter Deborah D. Schneider and son-in-law
- Philip Schneider, both of Amelia Island,
Fla., daughter-in-law Beth Delaney (nee

cutting projects and even nec-
essary maintenance."
Stull told commissioners it
may be a good idea for cities to
invest in redevelopment now
because interests rates are low
and will most likely stay that
way for a couple of years. Bids
for municipal projects have
also been 80-85 cents on the
dollar, he said -another reason
to go forward with the city's
strategic plan.
"I tell clients to make sure
it's a needed project," Stull said.
He added that cities must
"make a judgment call" on
which projects are most nec-
essary, but that lenders "want
to see a certain amount of pub-
lic space."
"The more desirable a com-
munity is has an impact on the
(loan) rating," Stull said. But,
he added, "(banks) just care
about the revenue stream ...
the city must view it as a nec-
essary project."
But Commissioner Eric
Childers said he was con-
cerned about the financial
health of the city, and added
that "we all know when you
borrow there is risk."
"I think the biggest risk is
not doing anything," Vice
Mayor Tim Poynter said.
"We're investing in our com-
munity ... it's our own mini
stimulus package."
"We've been going through
this exercise a long time,"
Poynter said. "The first thing
(cities) do when they want to
revitalize is they fix the water-
front."
But Childers also noted that
"a week ago we were going to
attempt to collect more (taxes)
from (an increase in) the mill-
age rate." The city commission
has approved a tentative mill-,
age rate that is 10.25 percent
higher than this year's.
"We've made no decisions,
regardless of what's been
reported (in the newspaper),"
said Commissioner Arlene


CRAproposas
After hearing a presentation by George Smith of Bryant
Miller Oliver on Tuesday, commissioners did not seem
interested in revising or adding to the city's Communrny
Redevelopment Area.
CRAs, which are tax districts created to address blight-
ed areas, can bring in money with tax increments when the
area is redeveloped and property values increase The
city's CRA, however, was created just before the housing
market crashed and has not been a reliable revenue
source.
Smith said the city could expand the CRA, amend the
CRA plan or amend the CRA's base year The base year
essentially "freezes" the value of properties within the CRA
so the city can use any property tax increases for more
improvements, but only within the CRA. The city could also
create a second CRA, Smith said.
City Attorney Tammi Bach noted the city could not
expand the CRA's boundaries without the county's permis-
sion.
"The hardest thing to do would be to do away with what
you have now and start from scratch," Smith said Any
changes, he said, would involve a new finding ol blight, cre-
ating new statutes and having many public hearings.
"The county can present an opposing plan, and may
have competingpolicy goals," he said. He also said there is
no process yet to amend the base year of the CRA
because that has not been done before.
"One alternative is to have two CRAs within city limits,"
he said "The county can't veto it, but they can show up at
meetings."
Smith said it would take about a year to establish a new
CRA.


Filkoff. "This commission has
talked about this (strategic
plan) since February. We have
to make our decision on what's
important to the community
as a whole."
Mayor Susan Steger cau-
tioned commissioners to "pro-
ceed with caution."
"We're asking citizens to
pay more debt," Steger said.
Czymbor noted a way to
pay down the debt from a loan
could be with an increase in
electrical franchise or. natural
gas fees, or by CRA revenues.
The city does not yet have
natural gas service, but
Czymbor said the pipeline
would be coming in next year.
The CRA, which depends on
tax increments from increased
property development, has
brought virtually nothing into

'This is all warm and fuzzy,
but I'm not convinced that if
we build it they will come," said
Childers. But, he added that
"everyone in the downtown
supports (the strategic plan)."
"That's because they know
this is the focal point of
Fernandina," Poynter retort-
ed. "You spend money where
you get the biggest bang for
the buck. That's the center of
Fernandina ... when they tore
up the streetscape (in the late
1970s) ... people were out-
raged, but they came to love
it."
'To build something just to
have a beautiful thing in this
economy is not necessarily the
wisest thing," Childers said.
Peynter urged commis-
sioners to choose the water-
front-and downtown as the first
project in the strategic plan.
If commissioners approve
the strategicplan on Teslday,
a request for proposals will be
sent out to local qualified
banks, Czymbor said.

County won't repay


application
GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader

The Nassau County Com-
mission has decided not to reim-
burse a $1,000 application fee
Jack Lavin filed for transporta-
tion concurrency on a 7.4-acre
parcel of land owned by
Hubert and Christine Clark on
A1A.
County Manager Ted Selby
said the reimbursement would
not be a refund, but a separate
expense entirely since Lavin's
fee had already been paid to the
Northeast Florida Regional
Council to conduct a required
traffic study.
A 1985 state law, since
amended, requires local gov-
ernments to assure there is suf-
ficient infrastructure concur-
rent with development. In the
case of large residential or com-
mercial developments, the
developer must have received a
concurrency permit showing
adequate road infrastructure to
support the number of auto-.
mobile trips generated by the
development.
Commissioner Danny
Leeper voiced his concern that
a decision to return money for
the completed survey would set
a precedent and invite similar
requests in the future.
"Is it going to open a door for
other potential requests to come
before the board?" Leeper
asked. "I mean, my concern is if
we do one, it's going to be more
coming."
Selby said while there were
not any similar requests filed,
he could not rule out the possi-
bility of more developing if

Lavin received a reimburse-
ment.
County records indicate
Lavin initially requested a
refund of the fee May 23, said
Walter Fufidio,. director of
growth management.
Commissioner Steve Kelley
opposed the reimbursement.
"We paid somebody, the traffic
study was done and they, in
essence, got their concurren-
cy," Kelly said. "I think we ought
to just leave it alone... I realize
it was a big screw-up and it took
a couple years to get it done,
but it's not like we profited from
the money."
The property had been the
subject of previous applications
for concurrency, Fufidio said
Wednesday, all of which had
been deferred on the basis of
limited traffic capacity on two
segments of A1A.
Fufidio said traffic studies -
reviewed by the regional coun-
cil to determine technical suffi-
ciency accompany all concur-
rencies of the size Lavin
requested.
Fufidio noted the property
owner scaled back his develop-
ment plans for the land, the
Florida Department of
Transportation advanced fund-
ing for the widening of lanes
on A1A and the required
traffic capacity was ultimately
secured.

onded the motion.
Working in conjunction
with Florida Public Utilities,
the city recently completed a
map and audit of all street-
lights in the city. The audit
revealed 84 streetlights on
six county-maintained roads
within the city's corporate lim-
its, the city manager wrote.
The annual electrical bill
for these lights which are
located on 14th, Citrona,
Jasmine, Sadler and Beaunet
- is $12,712, according to an
email from Rex Lester, city
maintenance superintendent,
to Czymbor.
'The city has turned off'
roughly a third of its street-
lights under an initiative to
reduce lighting costs by 25-35
percent. The plan aims to
shut off 400 of the 1,200

Owners surrender pets in hard times


KATHIE COLGROVE
Community Newspapers


Nassau County pet owners
are surrendering cats and dogs
at an increasing rate. The num-
ber ofowner-surrendered dogs
and cats rose by 31 percent
from December to May,
according to Nassau County
Animal Services Director
Deborah Biggs.
"We received 986 dogs and
cats," she said. "Of those, 21
percent, 205 (animals), were
owner-surrendered for various
reasons. From December 2010
to May 2011, the number of
owner-surrendered dogs and
cats increased to 410 out of


1,344 dogs and cats received -
or 31 percent."'
Of the pet owners Animal
Services interviewed from
December 2010 to May 2011,
16.1 percent said they couldn't
afford them, while 11.2 percent
surrendered pets due to mov-
ing. Meanwhile, 7.3 percent of
pet owners respectively sur-
rendered pets because of the
"health of owner" or having
"too many animals."
Almost 60 percent of the ani-
mals surrendered'were from
owners living in the Aireas of
Callahan and Hilliard. Dogs
represented two-thirds of the
surrendered compared with
cats, the other third. ..


"Rarely will we accept
'other' owner-surrendered ani-
mals as we do not have ade-
quate space," Biggs said. "If we
do take them, we generally
send them to a rescue, which
we recommend people contact
to begin with."
She added that pet owners
do have options prior to sur-
rendering a pet. "See if a fami-
ly member or friend can take
the pet," she said. "If it is a
pure-bred, they can contact a
breed-specific rescue such as
lab rescue or border collie
rescue. lThey should also put
an ad in lhe paper .. prior to
tur-ning the -aiinialtinto thie
, shelter." .. . . -. .. ,. .-;.:,


SShe added that surrender-
ing pets to the county should be
considered only as a last resort
because animals are not gen-
erally returned to owners if
their economic conditions
improve.
Relinquished dogs and cats
are, kept at the facility for an
undetermined amount of time,
with efforts made to place them
in foster homes or new homes
through various agencies.
"There is no set time limit
other than for strays," Biggs
said. "Stray animals must be
held five business days for the
owner to reclaim. After the
holding period, they are evalu-
ated,,for ti ,i'-_, n i,,1 ail, i-,di ,., ,

New or used car?


There are millions of con-
sumers close to making a vehi-
cle purchase in the coming
months. About 4 million a
month will buy a used vehicle
and around 1 million will buy
new. Two-thirds of the used
cars will come from a new or
used car dealer and one-third
will change hands between pri-
vate parties. There are people
who will only buy new and oth-
ers who are convinced that used
is the way to go.
There is no exact formula
for which way to go, but there
are some things to consider if
you are unsure of new versus
used. Think of yourself as the
independent voter, not tied to
either train of thought. The
ranks of independent voters are
growing, as well as the num-
bers deciding between new and
used.
We are seeing more con-
sumers buying new that might
have purchased a late-model (1-
2 years old) used car. With
fewer new cars being sold the
last three years, the supply of
late-model used cars has
shrunk, driving up prices. It is
as simple as supply and
demand.
There are still values to be
found, depending on the model.
A two-year-old car with 30,000
miles or less is used car nir-
vana. The two biggest depreci-
ation hits occur these first two
years, creating a differential in
price to the new car. There is
time and mileage remaining on
the factory warranty, reducing
risk tremendously. Also serv-
ice contracts cost less on cars
under warranty. If the stars
are aligned and you find a
model with a known history, it
is ideal.
Guess what two-year-old,
30,000-mile and under cars are
the rare exception. There are a
number of three-year-old off-
lease cars that were driven by
one owner only (versus rental
cars) that are good opportuni-
ties. As you might guess, these
are bringing a premium in
today's market.
How do you approach new
versus used when it's time for a
car? The two biggest barome-
ters are your budget (usually a
payment) and your annual miles
driven. The more miles you
drive, the better the argument
for trying to buy new. Say you
know that the car will be driven
25,000 miles plus a year. Try to
buy new and finance it no
longer than 60 months. Drive it


four to five


that drive
30,000 miles
a year, finan-

try to trade in
IREFFER'S in two or
CORNER three years
.. are way up-
side down. If
Rick Keffer it takes com-
promising on a lesser new car to
avoid going oyer 60 months,
the high mileage driver should
do it. Now, let's say you are the
average (15,000 miles a year)
to low mileage driver things
are much different.
Financing for a longer peri-
od of time is more reasonable,
especially at today's low rates.
Trading after say three years
or three and a half years is
much more doable. You should
be about break even, assuming
you made about a 10 percent
down payment at purchase on a
new car.
Used cars are a more logical
choice for the average to low
mileage driver, as they will last
longer. Most of this seems log-
ical, but logic is not always at
the forefront when it is time to
make any purchase.
Interestingly, we are seeing
more pure cash buyers for used
cars. Not credit union drafts,
but savings account with-


drawals. And this is happening
in some lower price ranges
(under $10.000). The average
used car is over $12,000 at deal-
erships. Some middle-class
Americans who could easily buy
new are opting for used and
paying cash, not tying up too
much budget for their car.
Cash buyers should look
how much less a late-model car
is than a new one. Can you save
40 cents a mile from the cost
of a new one? I like that number.
The IRS gives more of a
deduction per mile than that, I
believe. The year model would
make the number change,
going down from 40 cents after
two years. Just use a compara-
tor and be consistent when
looking. Ask yourself if a 20,000
mile late-model car is worth
within $8,000 of a new one. The
only right answer is what you
think.
There are great new and
used cars out there for most
any budget. Not one of them is
worth busting the budget on.
It is better to spend what you
can afford and stay out of the
financial pressure-cooker. Good
advice for the consumer and
Congress, too. Have a good
week.

A modern-day Don Quixote


A few years ago, I had a heart attack.
The kind known in the graveyard
humor of the medical profession as
"the widow maker."
The first few days back at home after the
hospital stay and the stents in my coronary
arteries, I felt bulletproof. I'd beaten the widow
maker. Nyah. Take that, death. But then the
gravity of what I'd been through pulled me
back to Earth and left me, as is fairly common
post-heart attack and heart surgery, feeling a
little blue. I was also afraid. I remember nights
not sleeping much and feeling my damaged
heart thumping in my chest and wondering if
I'd see sunrise.
Not long after, my old buddy Clark Hoshall
came to see me. When he asked me how I was
feeling, I confessed that I was a little scared
and just glad to be here, albeit for who knew
how long. Clark slapped me on the shoulder
and laughed and said, "My friend, any day on
this side of the grass is a good day." And then
we both laughed like a couple of fools. How
could you not laugh at Clarkisms, as his witty
one-liners came to be'known? I felt fortunate to
have been blessed with one all my own.
A few days ago, Clark made that journey to
the other side of the grass, the one we all make
eventually. He leaves behind his broken-heart-
ed soulmate and partner of 20 years, Amy Dye,
and too many friends to count. You see, Clark
was a wealthy man, but he also had a trillion-
dollar surplus of friends and loved ones who


1 mourn his passing. Clark's
wealth of friends would make
Solomon's gold look like
lumps of coal.
He was one of the most
giving, compassionate human
beings I ever knew. Clark
wouldn't just give you the
proverbial shirt off his back
but, if you needed it, his
CUPOF entire suit of clothes, his
JOE shoes, his car and enough gas
money to get you where you
needed to go. I remember
Joe Palmer once when the kids were
young and we were strug-
gling, Clark heard about it and gave me a size-
able chunk of money to get us through. He did-
n't want to be repaid. I repaid him anyway, but
we would've still been friends had I never
made the effort.
Clark was a larger than life activist for the
poor, the downtrodden and the afflicted. He
was a modern-day Don Quixote. He was fear-
less and relentless when it came to taking on
their causes. No man or entity was too formida-
ble for him. Corrupt, powerful men trembled
at his brilliant voice. Laws changed or were
written because he caused them to in the name
of justice.
"Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for
the sake of justice for they shall have their fill,"
one of the eight beatitudes decrees. I've no


doubt that is true. It's been proven time and
again, not only in this country, but elsewhere.
But we don't have to look as far as Mother
Theresa or Dr. Martin Luther King or Gandhi
to find tireless warriors for the sake of justice.
We had one right here in our midst in the
laughing, wry person of Dr. Clark V. Hoshall.
Clark, no doubt owing somewhat to being a
doctor, also had a deep and abiding concern
about the well-being of the individual. If'he
sensed or knew a friend was sliding into the
abyss, you could count on him being there
with an extended hand. We had a mutual friend
who had a substance abuse problem. Clark
picked this person up time and again, long
after most people would've said to heck with it.
Last I heard, our mutual friend had finally beat-
en the demons.
Clark wasn't a maudlin, sappy type of man
so I don't want to go too heavy on the syrup
here. It just wouldn't be fitting. I prefer to
remember his huge laugh and his bright smile
and keen intellect. He could talk to you about a
subject way above your personal pay grade in
such a way that you'd understand. He did that
a lot with me and I'm the wiser for it.
He would be proud of the well-attended
memorial service at his and Amy's home last
week. We laughed and told Clarkisms about
the man we all loved so. much.,
Until we meet gain, old friend, every day
this side of the grass is a good day.

Forward Fernandina?


Not yet, no

W e applaud the well-meaning and
persistent citizens who have
pushed the Forward Fernandina
plan so far along the city plan-
ning process. Their hearts are in the right
place improving our town.
In the end, though, we can't endorse all of
the projects on the list now before the city
commission. And we certainly can't endorse
the financing plan for those projects.
Now is not the time now is not the time -
to borrow millions of dollars to fund this plan.
We can't afford it.
Forward Fernandina articulates a vision of
our future that we don't completely accept.
SWe do not think the downtown post office
should become a new city hall. We do not
think the city library should be moved to
Centre Street. We question whether the
Amelia River waterfront projects will be com-
pleted as envisioned. Let's take those in
order:
We agree the downtown post office
should be saved. We think the city has been
remiss in not forcing the federal government
to do a better job of maintaining that building.
If a homeowner or business had allowed a
building to deteriorate so, would the city have
been as lax in enforcement? We don't think
so.
The city commission already has commit- *
ted $350,000 to stabilize the building to pre-
vent further decay. That should go forward,
but no more city dollars should be committeS
to the project (indeed, none are designated in
the first phase of the Forward Fernandina
plan). Instead, the Amelia Island Fernandina
Restoration Foundation, which has spear-
headed Forward Fernandina, should under-
take a fundraising campaign to preserve and
renovate the old post office for a new use.
We do not think the city should pay to
move the library into a new building, which
would require extensive remodeling for that
purpose. Please note: This is a COUNTY
library branch, not a city library. The county
funds the lion's share of the Fernandina
Beach branch's expenses.
For one, what makes you think the city will
do a better job of maintaining a new building
when it has done such a poor job with the cur-
rent one? Like the current city hall, which is
no longer a historic building because of city
neglect, the library building suffers from lack
of proper upkeep.
For another, a significant portion of the
library is devoted to administrative offices
and back-office functions that benefit the
entire county library system. Move those off
the island and use that space for city library
services that benefit the public.
.Finally, the single biggest complaint we
hear about the current library is that you
can't find the books you want there. What
makes you think that will change in a new
library? Will the county, which has book-buy-
ing responsibility, somehow be shamed into
purchasing more books just because it has a
bigger space to fill?
We don't think so, not in this economic.cli-


t now
--..al ,

Increasing fees on electric bills to
raise $6 million for Forward
Fernandina will cause hardship
for too many of our residents.

mate and not given the dramatic rise in digital
information used by the public.
The Amelia River waterfront improve-
ments were to be funded by revenue from
creation of a Community Redevelopment Area
downtown. However, because of overly rosy
projections and an unanticipated economic
recession, those revenues have not come to
pass. Now the city is casting about for other
sources to finance Front Street improve-
ments, extension of Alachua Street across the
railroad tracks and city waterfront park
amenities.
We have been cursed by years of debate
on what our waterfront should look like. Most
citizens want open space like the park on the
waterfront in St. Marys, Ga., but our commis-
sion committed itself years ago to a water-
front that caters to o'ut-of-town boaters who
might spend money at our downtown busi-
nesses. The current plan would expand that
to include waterfront condos whose owners
might prove to be an economic boost for mer-
chants.
We would like to see our waterfront finally
achieve its potential, whatever that is, but we
are not persuaded that city officials can effec-
tively create and manage these projects. And
we are leery of the implications of the financ-
ing scheme.
The citizens who support Forward
Fernandina are generally better off economi-
cally than most of us and probably would not
feel the financial pain so much. That cannot
be said of most city residents and business
owners, who have bent about as far as they
can and could break if their costs of living and
doing business go up any more.
It is not fair to burden them through fran-
chise fees on top of already steep electricity
and other utility costs. Increasing fees on
electric bills to raise $6 million for Forward
Fernandina will cause hardship for too many
of our residents. These are hard times for
-most of us, and our city commission absolute-
ly must recognize that and hold down all pos-
sible expenses.
We understand these commissioners chafe
at being called a do-nothing commission, but
it is better to do nothing than to do something
we can't accomplish or can't afford.
We also reckon the commissioners have
misjudged their public, which has made clear
it wants an opportunity to vote on this finan-
cial plan and not have it shoved.down our
throats.
We urge the commission to defer this plan.
The city should wait until economic condi-
tions improve.
Fernandina can still go forward. But later
- not now.


But if they insist..


Weoppose the Forward Fernandina
financing plan to be considered Tuesday by
the city commission. But a majority of com-
missioners appears ready to approve it. If
despite our opposition and that of the citizen-
ry they insist, we have an alternative propos-
al.
Don't approve a $6 million plan. Just do $3
million, and focus all of the spending on the
Amelia River waterfront.
That would enable the city to pay more
than half of its projected costs for improving
Front Street, extending Alachua and creating
a waterfront park. It leaves out plans to move
the library and make improvements on
Centre and Eighth streets.
The waterfront improvements were to
have been paid for with revenues from a
Community Redevelopment Area the city
established in 2005. But those revenues have
not developed, at least in part because of the
economic recession.
Our proposal would replace those rev-


enues. If the city spends the $3 million
responsibly, then it could borrow more later
with broad citizen support.
We still think proponents' notion of
"spreading the pain" while making all city res-
idents pay back the loan with higher electric
bills is morally and financially objectionable. It
places too much of a burden on the poorest
among us.
We would much prefer the city establish a
special assessment district downtown and in
the historic district to pay for the $3 million
loan. As downtown merchants benefit from
new economic activity the revitalized water-
front will generate, so will historic district
property owners benefit from improved land
values. Those who benefit thus should pay.
Based on its previous failures, we still
question whether the city can accomplish this
vision. But half a loaf is better than none. And
if city officials surprise us with a successful
outcome, then we'll be pleased to congratu-
late them and pony up for more.


JOHN DARKOW/COLUMBIA (MO.) DAILYTRIBUNE


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Hear the train a-coming
I was very impressed with Mr. Ed Stull's tech-
nical presentation, analysis and his answers to the
questions Tuesday night, especially the answers
,to questions on the affordability of the Forward
Fernandina plan to the city in view of the over-
all debt and other expenses. He spoke with
authority-and was not speculative.
It appears that the average taxpayer could
afford the projects but not everyone in the city
is average. He repeatedly emphasized that it is
very important that these are needed projects.
I think I may have heard one of the commis-
sioners acknowledge that you may get a differ-
ent answer from the residents than the com-
mission on the need for the projects at this time.
This causes concern.
This could be resolved by a referendum vote
if the commission is not afraid to answer the
basic question on determining the need and
desirability by the taxpayers. Also, future com-
missions can change the course if not fully sup-
ported by the general public, which could leave
the city in a difficult situation.
Action can be taken if there is sufficient oppo-
sition in the community to fight the bank loan in
view of the lack of support for the projects, espe-
cially if it is a local bank. While it is acknowledged
that it would be cheaper to use a bank loan rather
than a general obligation bond, regardless of
the method of funding, it would not prevent the
city from putting it on the ballot in November to
answer the basic question your financial adviser

raised. This would not be a significant delay as
November is right around the corner. It could
keep the city out of rough seas! Read the letters
in the News-Leader, opponents are not going
away. Commissioners need to listen.
I was thankful to hear the commissioners'
honest soul-searching questions on the impacts
to the city and all the residents of Fernandina. I
was also impressed with the tough questions by
Eric Childers, who also was shedding his soul
and trying to answer some tough questions.
Otherwise, I heard the train coming down the
hill.

title waterfront train station
I've been thinking that a little CSX train sta-
tion would be a very useful addition to the water-
front in Fernandina Beach. I really think that a
small train station would bring back that old-
time small-town feeling and be a welcome addi-
tion around or near the quaint waterfront on
Fernandina Beach. I saw a news piece today
about the Amtrak in Jacksonville and the cost to
Orlando at approximately $35. What a great way
to get around.
Since we can never seem to effectively pass
a high-speed rail program in our state it may be
appropriate for cities and towns to take the wheel,
or the rails in this case.

Rowing, bailing, taking responsibility and doing our part


At a distance, it looked like any
other boat; minus a motor of course.
As they rowed against the current
and got a little closer, I got my first
glimpse at those on board. My guess
is that the two boys were friends and
the girl, a pre-teen, was likely the
younger sister of one of them.
Whatever the case, when I finally fig-
ured out what was going on, I found
myself watching them as much as I
was watching the bobber on the end
of my own fishing line.
Bucket full after bucket full, her
job was clear. While one of the boys
rowed and the other gave directions,
she was the one in charge of bailing
out incoming water. Apparently, the
boat had a decent size leak. As I


watched her con-
stant and methodi-
cal movement,
along with the boy
rowing and the boy
acting as captain, I
was both amused
and a bit con-
cerned. Surely they
were heading
PULPIT somewhere that
NOTES they could beach
.... the boat and fish
off the shore.
Pastor When I finally
Rob Goyette saw them throw
out an anchor in
the middle of the river and pull out
their fishing poles, the two boys I'm


talking about, my amusement rose
to a new level. At first I gave them
the benefit of the doubt. At any
moment they'll relieve the girl I
thought, but it didn't happen. OK,
eventually, for about 10 minutes one
of the boys offered up a token effort,
but apart from that, the entire time
they fished the boat stayed afloat
because of her.
In my mind, I tried to imagine
how they had talked her in to joining
them that day. Perhaps it was one of
those younger sibling things, where
the younger brother or sister wants
so badly to hang out with the older
crowd that they're willing to do any-
thing if allowed to tag along. Then
again, maybe she was threatened, or


lied to, or promised some special gift
at the end; I don't know. All I know
is that her bailing water for as long
as she did, while they just sat back,
wasn't right. Now don't get me
wrong, as many of you know, I like
to fish.
On the one hand, I can relate to
the young guys looking for a cre-
ative way to do the thing they enjoy,
but to saddle the next generation
with the load of bailing out their bro-
ken boat just didn't settle welL
OK, right about now this
article could go political or spiritual,
but I'll try to stay in my place. When
it comes to addressing who's to
blame for all the injustices in the
world, and the rising water level


around our feet, I believe we all need
to take personal responsibility and
do our part. Like Adam blaming Eve
for eating the forbidden fruit, and
then Eve blaming the devil, God
sees past all our finger pointing and
is waiting for people to just say it.
"Lord, the place we're in is broken
and we need your help." I realize
that sounds way too simple, but
could it be that's all He's waiting
for? I know on a personal level
those simple words, along with
a sincere invitation for Him to climb
into my boat, changed my life
forever.

1. Do you have headaches you haven't had before?
2. Do you have numbness or tingling in your arms or legs?
3. Do you have neck, back or muscle pain?
If you answered YES to any of these questions,
you qualify for our care.
Even if it seems minor, you should seek the advice of a profes-
sional. Don't risk your health. Even what seems to be a minor
accident could cause injuries that require treatment. Your health
and well being is just to important to risk.

Combat insomnia with daily


've'never had trouble falling
asleep. It's probably some
developed behavior I picked up
in medical school. You learn
how to stay awake for 36 hours
straight and you learn how to fall
asleep in a matter of tninutes. In fact,
I could drink a pot of coffee while
studying, then turn out the lights
and be asleep almost instantly.
For those of you unable to fall
asleep at night, I do understand how
miserable nighttime can be for you.
You lie in bed, just staring at the
clock, counting down how many
hours of sleep you would get if you
fell asleep at that very moment.
When you do finally get to sleep, the
alarm often stirs you from your
deepest sleep cycle and you drag
yourself through the rest of the day.
Many of you take medications to
help you get through this, but this is
not a long-term solution and you
keep hoping for a cure. Well, if you
want to try to break this pattern of


sleep disturbance,
you should consid-
er an exercise pro-
gram.
A study pub-
lished in the jour-
nal Sleep details

cised first thing in

SMITH. M.D. sleep problems.
SMITH..D. Exercise has
"*. been shown in the
past to help with
sleep problems, but researcher
Shelley Tworoger specifically com-
pared a morning program to an
evening one. She looked at the
effects an hour of daily exercise had
on 175 women with chronic com-


llaints of insomnia not just get-
ting to sleep but staying asleep.
Her results showed daily morn-
ing exercise was highly successful
in combating insomnia. Success was
seen when at least four hours of
morning exercise was performed.
Interestingly, those who chose to
exercise at night had greater diffi-
culty.
Fourbad habits
People know what's bad for them,
but often they do it anyway. Smoking
is a classic example. You know it is
bad for you, with countless studies
and research touting the dangers,
but despite all of that, millions of
people still smoke. It always amazes
me when I see doctors and nurses
who smoke.
In addition to smoking, there are
three other habits that are well
defined as contributors to poor
health over-indulgence of alcohol,
lack of exercise and poor diet. In


morning

addition to simply leading to poor
health and disease, research out of
Britain suggests that a combination
of these can age you by as much as
12 years.
SThe findings are from a study
that tracked nearly 5,000 British
adults for 20 years and looked at
those who smoked, men who drank
more than three alcoholic drinks per
day (more than two per day in
women), got less than two hours of
exercise per week and avoided eat-
ing fruits and vegetables with every
meal.
Out of the 5,000 studied, there
were 314 who had all four bad habits
and nearly one-third died over that
20-year time frame, compared to an
8 percent mortality rate in those
who had none of the four poor
habits. Death certificates were
checked for the next 20 years. The
most common causes of death
included heart disease and cancer,
both related to unhealthy lifestyles.


workouts

The results were published in the
Archives ofInternal Medicine recent-
ly. Lead researcher Elisabeth
Kvaavik of the University of Oslo
noted, "You don't have to be
extreme to be healthy. These good
behaviors add up and it should be
possible for most people to manage
to do it."
Kvaavik pointed out that one car-
rot, one apple and a glass of orange
juice would suffice for the fruit and
vegetable cutoffs in the study.

Bill Raser is Don Quixote

"Man of La Mancha."


Fernandina

baritone

scores role

of lifetime

For the News-Leader
ST. MARYS, GA Fernan-
dina Beach resident Bill Raser
had an item on his bucket list
that few people would have -
to play the role of Don
Quixote in "Man of La Man-
cha." Raser is about to mark
off that item as he stars in St.
Marys Little Theatre's pro-
duction of one of America's
most enduring musicals.
"Bill Raser is Don
Quixote," said Barbara Ryan,
founder of the St. Marys Little
Theatre and director of "Man
of La Mancha." "When Bill
sings about the quest, he
touches the heart of even the
most cynical and convinces us
that there is purpose in- ...
dreaming the impossible
dream."
Raser joins 25 other actors
in bringing big entertainment
to the small town of St.
Marys, Ga., with "Man of La
Mancha" performances
scheduled for Sept. 9, 10, 16,
17 and 18 at the St. Marys
Railroad Building, 1000
Osborne Road, in St. Marys.
Raser's rich baritone voice
is as distinguished as his
lengthy acting bio, which
includes numerous produc-
tions for Amelia Community
Theatre and Fernandina Little
Theatre. His co-star, Whitney
Sanzero, plays the dual roles
of Aldonza and Dulcinea to
whom Don Quixote dedicates
all his knightly good deeds.

quilts made by the mem-
bers of the Georgia Chapter
of Quilts for Kids. The head-
quarters for the Georgia
Chapter is located in
Waycross. The organization's
mission statement is to trans-
form unwanted and other fab-
rics into patchwork quilts that
comfort children with life-
threatening illnesses and chil-
dren of abuse. There are
Quilts for Kids Chapters
across the United States. Each
chapter locates individuals in
their area who are willing to
piece and quilt the quilts that
are distributed in hospitals
and through disaster relief
agencies. The organization
has created and distributed
tens of thousands of quilts to
suffering children around the
world.
As part of the exhibit pro-
gram, Quilts for Kids mem-
bers will conduct a hands-on
workshop for kids ages 12 and
up on Aug. 27 at 10 a.m.
Participants will piece a small
quilt for a baby. Reservations
must be made in advance. Call

. melia SanJon
Gallery has added
to its collections the
work of artist and
jewelry designer Cori
Beychok, who recently moved
to Amelia Island. A talented
jewelry maker and gemolo-
gist, she has added another
dimension to the already
expansive selection of jewelry
in the gallery.
Beychok is an unrepentant
jewelry junky and rock
hound, having begun collect-
ing rocks and crystals while a
young child. Formerly a scien-
tist/writer, she graduated sev-
eral years ago from the
Jewelry Program at the North
Bennet Street School in
Boston, Mass., while working
her way through a graduate
gemologist degree from the
Gemological Institute of
America. After graduating,
she spent several years work-
ing for jewelers in and around
Boston before starting Cori B
Designs, also know as Jaunty
Jewels. A newcomer to
Fernandina Beach, she con-


tinues to indulge her passion
for jewels, inspired by the
beauty of island, the ocean
and all of its wonderful crit-
ters.
"I like to think of my
designs as being off-beat and
fun, while still being stylish
and easy to wear. Many of my
pieces are one-of-a-kind," says
Beychok.
She designs and hand-
crafts each piece using a vari-
ety of metal-smithing and
beading techniques, combin-
ing stones and mietals in
unique and unexpected ways.
When possible, she prefers
to use recycled or reclaimed
metals and materials. Stones
and beads are natural, mainly
untreated and run the gamut
from widely-used and well
known stones such as car-
nelian, chalcedony and tour-
maline to more unusual and
exotic stones, such as tourma-
linated quartz, sunstone and
hydroprase.
Visit the gallery on the cor-
ner of Third and Ash streets,
open from 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
every day and Sundays from
10 a.m.-4 p.m.


MAN Continued from 1B
paint her view of the world
- "The world's a dung heap,
and we are maggots who
crawl on it" a view that is in
direct contrast to Quixote's
beliefs. But in the end,
Aldonza is transformed by the
mad knight's quest to make
the world a better place.
"I hope to add some meas-
ure of grace to the world,"
Don Quixote says in explana-
tion of why he does the things
he does giving when it's nat-
ural to take, battering at walls
that won't break, and reaching
for an unreachable star. As the
play retells the story of Don
Quixote's quest for truth and
valor, beautiful songs emerge
that stroke the heart and soul
of those inclined to hope for a
better world. Ryan is confi-
dent that when the final song,
"Impossible Dream," is sung
by the entire cast, "there will
be no dry eyes in the audi-
ence."
Ryan said that the story,
the venue and the talents of
the actors all add up to equal a
whole that is greater than the
sum of its parts. The venue
for "Man of La Mancha" is as
impressive as the play itself.
Once slated to be demolished,
the old St. Marys Railroad
Building is being transformed
into a prison during the time
of the Inquisition. Ryan
praised the cast of "La
Mancha" for their professional
voices as well as their dramat-
Sic and comedic abilities.
"Few plays stir emotions as
powerfully as 'La Mancha'
does," Ryan said. "It was im-
portant for us that we launch
our theater with a show-stop-
ping performance, and I can't
think of any play more rous-
ing or more challenging than
'Man of La Mancha.'"
"I think people forget how
funny this show is," Ryan said.
"Don Quixote is a madman.
Sancho, his sidekick, is hilari-
ous, and even the'housekeep-
er played by a local Navy
base chaplain will have the
audience rocking with laugh-
ter.
"Audiences will be
entranced with the tapestry of
fantasy, romance, fun and
thrilling drama," Ryan said.
"And they will be reminded
that there is good in this
world and dreams come true
if we continue to dream even
of the impossible dream."
St. Marys his been with-
but live theater in the down-
town for several years, and
now that it's returning, a fever
is brewing as residents and
businesses get into the spirit
of the play and all it repre-
sents. During the two weeks
of the performances, restau-
rants in St. Marys will serve
specially prepared menu
items that pay tribute to the.
play's Spanish setting.
In keeping with the theme
of the play, citizens will be
asked to report all incidents of
"valor, kindness and nobility"
that can be featured in the
local press. Amelia Island resi-
dents will be able to take a
special ferry from the docks
of Fernandina to St. Marys on
Sept. 17 for the 7 p.m. per-
formance. The ferry package
will include a Spanish-themed
dinner at Captain Seagle's on
St. Marys' waterfront, trolley
ride to the theater and the per-
formance for an all-inclusive
price of $50 per person. The
ferry will leave Fernandina at
3:30 p.m. and return around
10 p.m. Call (912) 729-1103 for
reservations and details.
For those who prefer to
come by car, tickets for "Man
of La Mancha" can be pur-
chased at the St. Marys Wel-
come Center, 111 Osborne St.,
St. Marys, Ga., or by calling
(912) 729-1103. Tickets are
$12 each for all ages, and $10
each for 10 or more.
