NEWS LEADER


On again,


off again,


Seagraves


won't run
GARRETIT PELICAN
News Leader
.Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves will not seek a third term in
2012, he said Friday. His decision fol-
lows the departure of Undersheriff
Gordon Bass to helin campus securi-
ty for Jacksonville University.
"It's time to move on and let some-
body else take the headaches,"
Seagraves said.
Citing the politics associated with
elected office, he said the decision "at
this point is definite."
Seagraves had
announced last
September that he
would not seek
reelection in 2012,
saying then that "pol-
itics" had obstruct-
ed his abilio', to
carry out his duties.
Seagraves Then earlier this
month he stepped
back from that asser-
tion, saying he might'run again and
that "I know I'm the most qualified."
Now he is back out of the race, say-
ing Friday, "My family's sick of the
politics. Family has got to come first.
They'll be at my side when I'm on my
deathbed."
Those politics include an FBI inves-
tigation of the sheriff's office and a
publicized feud between Seagraves
and Assistant State Attorney Wes
White, head of the Nassau County
State Attorney's Office. But Seagraves
said his family's advice played a criti-
cal role in his decision not to seek re-
election.
Seagraves said the FBI's investiga-
tion had "absolutely" nr' b'.-:n inik in the
matter. While the investigation remains
ongoing, agents subpoenaed local busi-
nesses last year for records of busi-
ness transactions conducted with the
sheriff's office.
"I've fulfilled my obligation to this
community," Seagraves said, referring
to lowered incidences of violent crime

SURF'S WAY UP


MIKE PIKULA/FORTHE NEWS-LEADER
Hurricane Irene brought high surf, wind and beach erosion but little rain to Amelia Island on
Friday. Surfers were out early to ride the waves, which were significantly higher than usual. Next up
is Katia, a storm brewing in the Atlantic that bears watching.




New city fire chief hired

50 applications for the position to


replace the former chief Daniel
Hanes, who resigned this sum-
mer.
Bogle has 27 years of experience
with the city of Titusville, the last
four years as fire chief/fire marshal
and emergency manager. He has a


bachelor's degree 'from the
University of Central Florida and

agement fields.

at a starting salary of $77,000.


Citizens

Tea Party's

open forum
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Dissatisfaction with recent deci-
sions by city officials was a running
theme during an open meeting last
week at the Peck Community Center.
About two dozen residents attended.
The Nassau Patriots Tea Party invit-
ed citizens of all political stripes to
voice their concerns over local poli-
tics at the three-hour session. Several
members of the conservative political
group spoke their minds about nation-
al politics as well.
Susan Lane moderated the meet-
ing, saying its purpose was to "encour-
age people to learn how to stand up
and talk" at public meetings.
"Our motto is we educate and equip
citizens so they can make a proper
decision at the voting booth," she said.
Claire Strain said she was "con-
cerned about things going on in
Fernandina Beach right this minute,"
including large projects "not being
approved by referendum."
Referring to the Forward
Fernandina strategic plan recently
approved by commissioners, Strain
said the city could not afford to do it.
"I want to protect this city," she
said. "I wish we could at least have
some say about what's being spent."
The plan will benefit some businesses
but not the average resident, she said.
"I hope we can slow things down a lit-
tle."
"I have been so upset about what
the city is doing," said resident Jim
Last.
"(Mayor Susan) Steger thinks the
city manager is the greatest thing
that's happened to this city," but he is
neither business-friendly nor tourist-
friendly, said Last.
Last also said he was against a pro-
posal for paid parking at the beach.

SHERIFF
Continued from 1A
in recent years and the'dual
state accreditation the agency
has acquired at both the jail
and law enforcement divisions
under his leadership:
Despite offers, Seagraves
said he has not considered
exploring other professional
pursuits. Instead, he said he
would prefer to continue work-
ing with programs for local
children, such as the D.A.RE.,
or Drug Abuse Resistance
Education, program he intro-
duced o the county.
"Mywife says, 'Do nothing
for six months,"' he added. But
Seagraves said he would like
to spend time with his family,
who helped him arrive at the
decision.
"I hae'two'grandsons,'1he
added. "I want-toi enjoy some
time with them."
Bass' decision to leave the
sheriff's office comes after he
was reported earlier this
month to be the heir apparent
to run if Seagraves' abstained
from running. Seagraves hired
Bass as undersheriff Nov. 1.
Seagraves said his decision
not to seek re-election con-
tributed to Bass' decision.
Since deputies serve at the
pleasure of the current sheriff,
he said, Bass had to choose
between a secure opportunity
with the university and the
looming uncertainty of con-
tinued employment with the
sheriff's office.
"It is an excellent institu-
tion of higher education that
I'm extremely proud to work
for," Bass said Friday.
Like Seagraves, Bass
sought the counsel of family in
pondering his options. It didn't
hurt that his wife and two chil-
dren graduated from JU, he
said.
"I feel like when you com-
mit something to prayer and
get your family involved and
behind your decisibn-making.
process, good things happen,"
he said.
Bass said his years of expe-
rience in law enforcement with
the county and the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office


will help him lead his new
office managing the budget
and a number of employees -
as well as focusing on public
safety.
"After all, law enforcement
should be about public safety
and crime prevention," he
added.
Seagraves offered praise
for Bass and said he would
miss his former undersheriff's


"Eq

presence in the office.
"He's an outstanding indi-
vidual," he said.
Bass' successor is Maj.
Bobby Rowe, a veteran with
decades of experience serv-
ing the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office and Nassau County,
said Seagraves.
"Forty-three years in law
enforcement," Seagraves said.
"That says it all."

"This does not make sense
to me," Last said. "They wanted
to put (parking) meters down-
town. They said they would
have 83 percent (parking) occu-
pancy at Main Beach. It's not
full 83 percent on any day
except the Fourth of July."
Last also objected to the city
acquiring the post office build-
ing on Centre Street.
"Where is the urgency to
buy the post office?" he asked.
"Imagine the losses to keep it
maintained."
As for plans for a new library,
Last said the city could add
another room to the current
building without losing any adja-
cent parking. Buying a larger
building for the library, Last
said, would be a mistake
because it would take that prop-
erty off the tax rolls.
Last also noted the commis-
sioners were wrong at a recent
budget meeting to compare the
increase in today's millage to
the rate in the 1970s, because
properties are worth much
more now.
"I call that deception, or igno-
rance, or a combination of
both," Last said. "I hope we can
get something organized out of
this."
Joan Bean, who owns Bean
School of Dance at 25 N. Third
St. downtown, said she was not
sure which project in the strate-
gic plan commissioners plan to
do first.
"I'd like to see them finish
the (waterfront) park down-
town. ... I don't know how they
can justify opening up Alachua
(Street)," she said. "Until they


get those details worked out, I
don't know how they can go for-
ward. We need to be there (at
meetings) and ask those ques-
tions."
"When there is something
wrong with the system, you
need to fix it from within," noted
resident Tony Ferreira. "We
should look at the city charter
and make an amendment say-
ing you can't borrow (money)
for projects without the citizens
voting for it.... We should make
it so politicians can't do these
things to us."
Resident Ronald Machado
said changing the election date
from April to November was a
scheme that allowed some com-
missioners to stay in office long
enough to complete their agen-
das. He also noted the city's
decision to appeal its case
against McGill Aviation was
"money we can't spend."
"They slap us in the face"
when they say they don't need
the public's approval for proj-
ects, Machado said. "It's get-
ting very difficult for citizens to
speak out"
Andrew Curtin, who has
served on the Airport Advisory
Board, noted the city already
owed McGill Aviation $1.2 mil-
lion, which is accruing 6 per-
cent in interest, to be paid to
McGill. "Every time (the city)
goes to court, they get their
butts handed to them," he said.
Curtin also complained
about pay raises for city employ-
ees and the proposed increase
in the property tax rate.
He asked, rhetorically,
where the money would come
from for the city beach renour-
ishment project coming up in

the next few years.
And the rehabilitation of the
post office, Curtin said, would
cost the city much more than its
$3.8 million estimate.
Resident Thomas Morris
said commissioners had one
interest in mind: developing the
downtown marina.
"The city needs to focus on
more than just that," he said.
"It seems like we lost our view
of the ocean, now we're losing
our view of the Amelia River."
"All the commissioners are
doing is spending," Morris said.
"That needs to stop. We have
to get young people out to vote
who never voted. If we want our
voices heard, we're going to
have to do some hard work. It's
easy for (commissioners) to get
things through with not a lot of
people listening."
"That post office deal, to me
it doesn't make sense," Morris
said. "You'll pay taxes on that
for the rest of your life ... the
city makes us take up the slack.
... We need people up there that
care about the community. Let's
do what we can to get the right
people in office. Let's flood that
City Hall from now on. Let's pull
together and try to keep our
city."
"Some of us go way back in
this town," Lane said. "We're
tired of people who get elected
and act like they're smartei-
than we are."
"The Tea Party wants to
make a forum opportunity,"
Lane said. "I don't think (com-
missioners) care about what
people think. Why did you
come here, to change it? We
love our town, we love our peo-
ple."

4 arrested after meth labs found in Yulee


News Leader
.Two clandestine metham-
phetamine laboratories were
discovered by police in Yulee
last week. The Nassau County
Sheriff's Office discovered one
after a house fire broke out Aug.
24, police said.
Homeowner Sandra Oelke-
Smith, 49, told detectives that a
man known as Tommy was
cooking methamphetamine
when the fire broke out at
851307 Worthington Drive,
according to a report.
Detectives found Tommy


Roach, 41, of 11514 CR121,
Bryceville, at 95140
Woodbridge Pkwy., Apt. 203,
according to the report. He
allegedly told them he had
learned to cook methampheta-
mine from Oelke-Smith and
that she was "high" when she
came into the bathroom where
he was making the drug and lit
a torch, causing the cheinicals
to ignite.
Roach reportedly said he
brought material to cook
methamphetamine from Oelke-
Smith's house to the apartment
and took detectives to a rear


parking lot where the materials
were inside a black toolbox.
Those items included three
two-liter bottles with powder
methamphetamine mixture.
funnels, salt, crystal drain clean-
er, rubber tubing and an aera-
tor, the report stated.
Detectives also discovered a
trash bag with receipts for the
items from local retail stores,
the report stated.
According to the report,
Roach's roommate, Mark
Gallagher, 30, told detectives
he had been purchasing pseu-
doephedrine, an ingredient in


meth, for Roach for at least six
months, buying his monthly
limit of nine grams every
month. He also told detectives
he had been present during the
cooking process but did not par-
ticipate. The report states
Gallagher consented to a
search of his residence, where
detectives found hydrocodone
and alprazolam pills, for which
neither Roach nor Gallagher
had a prescription.
According to the report,
Oelke-Smith and Roach were
charged with producing
methamphetamine drugs and


possession of listed chemicals
with manufacture of a con-
trolled substance and trans-
ported to the Nassau County
Jail. They each were held on
bonds of $50,002. Gallagher
was charged with conspiring to
manufacture methampheta-
mine and trafficking in a con-
trolled substance and held on
$75,002 bond.
The other meth lab was dis-
covered in a shed behind a
house. Robert David Johnson,
44,85592 Blackmon Road, was
arrested Aug. 23 and charged
with possession of metham-


phetamine, possession of list-
ed chemicals with manufacture
of controlled substances and
conspiracy to manufacture
methamphetamine. He was
held on $75,002 bond.
Johnson was arrested after
detectives found him cooking in
the shed and discovered pseu-
doephedrine pills, a can of fuel,
batteries, starter fluid, coffee
filters, used syringes, receipts
from several local stores for
lithium batteries and a small
container of a white powdery
substance which tested positive
for methamphetamine.

Consumer confidence near low


University of Florida


GAINESVILLE Consumer
confidence among Floridians
decreased to a near-record low
in August, according to a new
University of Florida survey.
This month's mark is barely
higher than the record-low set
in June 2008.
"Although none of the index
components were at record
lows, the combined decrease
in confidence across all five
components is remarkable,"
said Chris McCarty, director of
the Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "If past his-
tory of this index is any indica-
tion, we are in, or at least very
near, a recession. We are not
likely to know for certain until
after the fourth quarter."
All five of the index's com-
ponents decreased, most
notably perceptions of U.S. eco-

nomic conditions over the next
year. Also falling were percep-
tions of U.S. economic condi-
tions over the next five years,
confidence to purchase big-tick-
et items such as cars and appli-
ances, perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a
year ago and expectations of
personal finances a year from
now.
A loss in confidence among
women and seniors played a
major role in the fall. The loss
in confidence among seniors


was surprising because confi-
dence among seniors rose in
July, McCarty said, but the
debate in Washington over rais-
ing the debt ceiling and other
issues may have finally taken
their toll.
'This is no doubt influenced
by debt reduction talks, which
now routinely include modifi-
cations to Medicare and Social
Security as part of the solution,"
McCarty said. "As there are no
clear details about potential
changes, some seniors are
becoming unnerved. Their
concerns are further fueled by
wild swings in the stock mar-
ket."
Despite the significant drop
in confidence, state and nation-
al economic indicators were not


much different from last month
when overall confidence rose
two points. State unemploy-
ment remained steady at 10.7
percent and national unem-
ployment dropped 0.1 percent
to 9.1. Gas prices.have declined
since the beginning of August,
McCarty said, and the median
price of a single-family home
in Florida declined to $136,500
from $138,000 in June. McCarty
said tourism in Florida contin-
ues to be a positive, offsetting
job loss in construction and
government employment.
"Over the next few months,
we do not expect consumer
confidence to decline much fur-
ther," McCarty said. "While we
are near record lows, as is the
rest of the country, the eco-
nomic circumstances are not
anything like they were in 2008.
At a certain point, it becomes
difficult for the index to go
much lower."
The research center con-
ducts the Florida Consumer
Attitude Survey monthly.
Respondents are 18 or older
and live in households tele-
phoned randomly.

4 arrested after meth labs found in Yulee


Views Leader
Two clandestine metham-
phetamine laboratories were
discovered by police in Yulee
last week. The Nassau County
Sheriff's Office discovered one
after a house fire broke out Aug.
24, police said.
Homeowner Sandra Oelke-
Smith, 49, told detectives that a
man known as Tommy was
cooking methamphetamine
when the fire broke out at
851307 Worthington Drive,
according to a report.
Detectives found Tommy


Roach, 41, of 11514 CR121,
Bryceville, at 95140
Woodbridge Pkwy., Apt. 203,
according to the report. He
allegedly told them he had
learned to cook methampheta-
mine from Oelke-Smith and
that she was "high" when she
came into the bathroom where
he was making the drug and lit
a torch, causing the chemicals
to ignite.
Roach reportedly said he
brought material to cook
methamphetamine from Oelke-
Smith's house to the apartment
and took detectives to a rear


parking lot where the materials
were inside a black toolbox.
Those items included three
two-liter bottles with powder
methamphetamine mixture,
funnels, salt, crystal drain clean-
er,.rubber tubing and an aera-
tor, the report stated,
Detectives also discovered a
trash bag with receipts for the
items from local retail stores;,
the report stated.
According to the report,
Roach's roommate, Mark
Gallagher, 30, told detectives
he had been purchasing pseu-
doephedrine, an ingredient in


meth, for Roach for at least six
months, buying his monthly
limit of nine grams every
month. He also told detectives
he had been present during the
cooking process but did not par-
ticipate. The report states
Gallagher consented to a
search of his residence, where
detectives found hydrocodone
and alprazolam pills, for which
neither Roach nor Gallagher
had a prescription.
According to the report,
Oelke-Smith and Roach were
charged with producing
methamphetamine drugs and


possession of listed chemicals
with manufacture of-a con-
trolled substance and trans-
ported to the Nassau County
Jail. They each were held on
bonds of $50,002. Gallagher
was charged with conspiring to
manufacture methampheta-
mine and trafficking in a con-
trolled substance and held on
$75,002 bond.
The other meth lab was dis-
covered in a shed behind a
house. Robert David Johnson,
44, 85592 Blackmon Road, was
arrested Aug. 23 and charged
with possession of metham-


phetamine, possession of list-
ed chemicals with manufacture
of controlled substances and
conspiracy to manufacture
methamphetamine. He was
held on $75,002 bond.
Johnson was arrested after
detectives found him cooking in
the shed and discovered pseu-
doephedrine pills, a can of fuel,
batteries, starter fluid, coffee
filters, used syringes, receipts
from several local stores for
lithium batteries and a small
container of a white powdery
substance which tested positive
for methamphetamine.

This month's mark is barely

was surprising because confi-
dence among seniors rose in
July, McCarty said, but the
debate in Washington over rais-
ing the debt ceiling and other
issues may have finally taken
their toll.
"This is no doubt influenced
by debt reduction talks, which
now. routinely include modifi-
cations to Medicare and Social
Security as part of the' solution,"
McCarty said. "As there are no
clear details about potential
changes, some seniors are
becoming unnerved. Their
concerns are further fueled by
wild swings in the stock mar-
ket." *
Despite the significant drop
in confidence, state and nation-
al economic indicators were not


much different from last month
when overall confidence rose
two points. State unemploy-
ment remained steady at 10.7
percent and national unem-
ployment dropped 0.1 percent
to 9.1. Gas prices have declined
since the beginning of August,
McCarty said, and the median
price of a single-family home
in Florida declined to $136,500
from $138,000 in June. McCarty
said tourism in Florida contin-
ues to be a positive, offsetting
job loss in construction' and
government employment.
"Over the next few months,
we do not expect consumer
confidence to decline much fur-
ther," McCarty said. "While we
are near record lows, as is the
rest of. the country, the eco-
nomic circumstances are not
anything like they were in 2008.
At a certain point, it becomes
difficult for the index to go

of citizen participation for effective democracy.
Spectator sport? Sitting and watching as chal-
lengers and incumbents go at it in the political
ring? In a democracy you can't just watch, you
have to get involved.
The local political season is right around
the corner and I look forward to the debates
and the discussion. I hope we will have capa-
ble; qualified challengers willing to take on the
incumbents and I hope the incumbents will be
prepared to vigorously defend their record.
But more than anything else, I hope this
election will be about direction where do the
candidates want to take Fernandina Beach; do
we want look like, be like, live like Key West,
or do we want to rededicate ourselves to the
community values that have made ours such a
wonderful place to live. Hometown or boom-
town, I hope the candidates talk about that.
Everything else is fixable, community direc-
tion isn't.
I know I'll be looking for a candidate with
hometown values, a core set of beliefs that sup-
port that philosophy, a person who's willing to
be an advocate for that philosophy and a per:
son for whom those values and that philosophy
are inviolate.
Gaps open and close, taxes are moveable -
fixable, budgets come and go, charter officers
like the city manager, city attorney and city
clerk are hired and fired, but once we lose pub-
lic access to public spaces, once we fail to pro-
tect and preserve our beaches and green, open
spaces, once we lose our downtown to the Key
West wannabe folks, well, those aren't so easily
fixed.
The local political season is upon us. I hope
you're ready to be both a spectator and a par-
ticipant.

Recycle plastic
Why on earth would Nassau
County cease plastic recycling Oct 1?
I recycle at Bailey Road and all the
containers that I use (paper, aluminum
cans and plastics) are filled to the top!
I cannot speak of the other collection
points.
If it doesn't get recycled, it goes to
our landfill (for thousand of years). I
would think that from an environ-
mental standpoint, it would be better
to recycle than overload our landfill
with plastics, even if it cost a couple of
dollars.
Recycle is the way.

'DoasIsay,notas Ido'
On the one hand it's difficult to
find,fault with News-Leader Publihi. i
Foy Maloy's rafit (his world) I.n ih,'
dismal condition of our nation's ecor-
omy, but on the other hand it's some-
what hypocritical for a self-professed
businessman to lecture us on the evils
of government financewhen he per-
sonally copies the same strategy in
his own company.
He states that while the general
public is fighting to stay alive, "your
local government continues to operate
as if nothing is different. Declining
taxes simple solution, raise taxes!" So
how would Mr. Maloy handle such a
financial crunch?
Well, a couple of years ago the
News-Leader apparently found itself in
a similar situation of declining rev-
enues and increasing costs. So what
magical solutions did Mr. Maloy imple-
ment? He simply chose to raise the
selling price of the one product, he
sold, and he wasn't timid. He didn't
just raise it by a nickel, or a dime, or
even two dimes, but instead by
a full quarter, a full 50 percent increase
on his product's selling price. Let's
see a show of hands from all you loyal
readers who believe the value
and quality of the News-Leader sud-
denly jumped 50 percent when the
price was increased. Come on, let's
see those hands. Anyone?
Hellooooooo.
Of course, Mr. Maloy will tell you
that you have to pay taxes, and you
always have the choice of iot pur-
chasing his newspaper. But that is
somewhat disingenuous when he
knows he has a captive audience, that
he is (for all practical purposes) the
sole purveyor of local Fernandina
Beach and Nassau County news and
advertising. And speaking of which,
where is all the newsprint lauding
county officials for, once again, keep-
ing the millage rate stable for the
fourth consecutive year, for paying off
debt, for increasing reserves and rais-
ing the bond rating? Where were those
editorials?
However, there is one major dif-
ference between the "spendthrift com-
missioners" (city or county) he abhors,
and Publisher Maloy himself: If com-
missioners decide to raise taxes, they,
like everyone else, will have to pay
for that increase. But when Maloy
increases the price of his product
by 50 percent, he won't have to dig
any deeper in order to use it. How
much better do you think your employ-
er's "bottom line" would be if they sim-
ply followed Maloy's example of rais-
ing the selling price by 50 percent?
Maybe Mr. Maloy can be persuaded to
throw his own hat into the political
ring when the city and county elec-
tions come around again. Since he has
all of the answers, he would be a wel-
come addition.
Oh, if only running local govern-
ment was as simple as some people
would lead you to believe it is.

Silent nolonger
This letter is in response to "Flat
earth people have their day" by Ron
Sapp published Aug. 17. Mr. Sapp has
one thing correct, Tea Partiers are
"ideologues"; they actually believe and
stand for something. They believe in
what our founders did, the principles
which lead to the greatest, freest, most
prosperous, generous'and just nation
in the history of the world.
I wonder what Mr. Sapp believes in?
Bigger government? More spending?
Higher taxes? Maybe someone ought
to inform this genius that there has
never been a nation which taxed and
spent its way-into prosperity. Or the
fact that oil companies and corpora-
tions do not pay taxes, they merely
collect them. Perhaps consideration
should be given, since Mr. Sapp
mentions wealthy individuals, that if
we stop. punishing success and
r i, ilirh' fr.iliii 1 night see more
iiucci and f'' fa;il'6r4-e I am sick and
tired of people like Mr. Sapp bashing
wealthy people. I want them to get
richer because-I understand how
they in a free-market capitalist society
benefit all in society, especially the
poor.
In addition, I fail to understand Mr.
Sapp's reasoning that the Tea Party, or
"Republicans-gone-Bananas" as he
calls them, is controlling the agenda in
Washington. After all, it's the big-gov-
ernment people, Democrats and tra-
ditional Republicans, that have bank-
rupted this country. A $14.5 trillion
national debt, soon to be $17 trillion,
equates to about $50,000 for every
man, woman and child in this country.
How are we ever going to pay that
back? Higher taxes and double-digit
inflation? In'fact, the local Tea Party
hasn't even been able to restrain our
local politicians from placing our com-
munity into even more debt, raising
taxes and fees and spending money on
items that are of questionable value
and need. Local government is doing
all this during a time when people are
losing their jobs and homes during
the worst economy since the Great
Depression. It's truly hard to under-
stand. It's like politicians have a drug
addiction. They simply cannot stop
spending other people's money no
matter what the economic conse-
quence.
I've got news for Mr. Sapp. The Tea
Party grassroots movement is going to
grow. People have had enough of big-
government central planners inter-
fering in their lives and limiting their
future business prospects. One can
hardly do anything now without get-
ting permission from some govern-
ment agent. I am not anti-government
or anti-tax. Both are needed to live in
a free society. I'm just anti-bad gov-
ernment and anti-bad tax and there
seems to be a lot of it these days.
Finally, since Mr. Sapp is placing
labels on others, perhaps people like
him need a label of their own. Perhaps
"arrogant liberal bigot" would be
appropriate.

Rep. Adkins summer
This letter is in response to Rep.
Janet Adkins' update on her summer
(Aug. 26).
I appreciate the work Rep. Adkins
performs for the citizens of Florida. I
believe she loves this state and our
country What I do not appreciate is
her neglecting to mention several per-
tinent facts regarding issues contained
in her article.
This summer Mrs. Adkins has
been busy with redistricting and her
other duties, one of which was a meet-
ing to "discuss the future of Northeast
Florida State Hospital." However, she
neglected to mention that one of the
beneficiaries of a "New NEFSH" would
be her husband's business, )ayspring


Village in Hilliard. While the new plan
may indeed be better for NEFSH I feel
it was Mrs. Adkins' moral obligation to
mention her relationship to one of the
new plan's beneficiaries. Conflict of
interest? You decide.
Rep. Adkins also made inferences
to illustrate the (perceived) inferiority
of the British health care system. She
recounted a conversation with a
taxi driver that lamented how he had
"paid into the system for many years"
and could not get the government to
pay for .his wife's back surgery
because doctors gave it a 50 percent
success rate. Tell me, people, even
after paying your premiums for many
years would your private (or employ-
ee) insurance company pay for a sur-
gery with a 50 percent success rate?
Think about it.
My nephew graduated from col-
lege with honors and unlike many col-
lege graduates has insurance bene-
fits. He suffered a drug reaction this
summer and was forced to see a der-
matolokist (within his network, of
course do we really think we can
choose our own doctors? Come on!).
The dermatologist prescribed two
medications. His insurance paid for
one, but needed a-"letter of medical
necessity" to cover the other. This
from the very same doctor that pre-
scribed the medicine in the first place!
Has something similar happened to
you, even after paying your premiums?
It has to me! Private insurance com-
panies have the upper hand. That's
why they and the drug companies are
paying millions in campaign contri-
butions/PAC/lobbying fees to keep
things just the way they are.
Another taxi driver lamented he
did not use the government plan and
had his own private insurance so he
would not have to wait several months
to get anything done. That is certain-
ly his choice, and he is fortunate that
he can afford to pay for private insur-
ance.
Mrs. Adkins neglects to point out
his country cares enough about all its
citizens to see that they have access
if/when it is needed.
I have several friends who are citi-
zens of the United Kingdom. One cou-
ple visited in the fall of 2009, when the
election/health care debate was heat-
ing up. My friend had been diagnosed
with melanoma and had received
quick, and excellent, care. They were
appalled that our country, the greatest
and wealthiest on Earth, did not guar-
antee all its citizens access to health
care.
Mrs. Adkins also mentioned the


immigration problems and its impact
on the citizens of the UK To be sure,
illegal immigration is an issue in the
United States, but we sure enjoy the
fruits (no pun intended) of their labors.
Without them we wouldn't have the.
cheap (relative to the rest of the
world), bountiful produce aisles and
nicely manicured lawns we so cher-
ish because American workers won't
perform the backbreaking manual
labor. Think about it.
And last, the gas. Oh yes, gas is
very expensive in the UK, as it is all
over Europe and most of the wqrld.
Has been for years. Americans have
always (and still do) pay some of the
cheapest gas (and food) prices in the
world. Perhaps we'd learn to conserve,
live within our means and not waste so
much if we paid prices comparable to
other countries.
Yes, the United States is still the
greatest country on Earth. That does-
n't mean everything here is better,
and it certainly doesn't mean we can't
improve on what we have.

dents and the airport manager, and
left bewildered.
We currently have two runways
that are.already instrument-approved
so why cut down massive amounts of
trees?
Because according to the airport
oaks have no value, at all, and pine
frees no aesthetic value, only mone-
tary! Wow!
If we let them get away with this,
this will only be the beginning.
And please take note of how our
commissioners vote. I will be.
Please stand with us to protect our
island lifestyle and its trees.
Michael S. McCoy
Fernandina Beach

Put it to a vote
The recent vote by city commis-
sioners to move forward on the
Fernandina projects has a lot of unan-
swered questions.
At least two or three commissioners
have very definite conflicts of interest
with these projects and should abstain
from voting. Why pay several hundred
thousand to cross a railroad track?


Smells kinda fishy to me.
The old post office is an albatross
and will remain one. No one seems to
know what repair costs will be.
When old computer illiterates like
me have gone on to a better place,
what will be the demand for library
use? The upcoming generations are
obsessed with iPhones, iPads and tex-
ting and tweeting through the tree-
tops. Everything they need is in their
hip pocket. Will libraries become
dinosaurs like the Blockbuster video
stores?
If I read the News-Leader correctly,
there will be two commission seats up
for re-election on Nov. 8. This would be
an excellent tire to put this big build-
ing project on the ballot and let the
residents of Fernandina vote on it,
since they are the ones that will be
paying forever on it.
Even though Fernandina is
strapped for cash, they need to find
enough money to buy six hearing aids
one for each commissioner and one
for the city manager. They are not hear-
ing one word the general public is say-
ing. If they have money to replace a
20,000-mile vehicle, they can surely
buy six hearing aids.
November will be a good time to
herd two commissioners to the back 40
and put them out to pasture. These
pork-barrel diets can become habit
forming.'
All of these pie-in-the-sky projects
are just another step in the removal of
the poor to middle-class old timers of
the island. Well have to establish com-
munes in Italia, Lessee or Kings Ferry.
Maybe Rayonier will set aside a com-
munity for Amelia Island migrants in
their big Crandall development.
The moneyed interests are nol
going to be happy until Amelia Island
becomes an atoll of condos and ele-
vated chicken coops' around the
perimeter. Otis the elevator man will
be a popular person on the island.
The real rich folks don't worry me.
Most of them are decent folks. It's the
rich wannabes toting the fake Gucci
handbags that you have to watch out
for.
It's the average folks carrying the
J.C. Penney handbags that will have to
pay for all these fancy projects.
Whether Fernandina becomes
another Martha's Vineyard or
George's grape patch is debatable. I'm
beginning to smell sour grapes.
Remember the Great Depression
motto: "Don't spend money that you
don't have."

SShell collector's delight


A anyone interested in col-
lecting shells and other
marine life should
igh-tail it to the
beach! Hurricane Irene missed
us, but apparently did not miss
countless clams, whelks, sea
stars and sand dollars lurking
in the ocean sands off our
shore. It's a regular smorgas-
bord of collectibles out there!
On my usual morning beach
walk, two days after Hurricane
Irene passed us by, I found the
beach littered with seashells of
all descriptions. I'm usually
more interested in walking and
admiring live critters, but this
morning it was hard not to be
caught up in a shell-collecting
frenzy. Before I had walked a
quarter of a mile my pockets
were already loaded with large,
perfect whelk shells, and I was
kept busy discarding ones as I
walked in favor of other even-
more-perfect replacements.
I wasn't the only one out
there enjoying nature's
largesse. Ahead of me a couple
of people shared a bucket, and
conferred over which shells to
add as it reached its capacity.
When they got closer to me, I
looked in their bucket. Whelks,
lots of them, it looked like to
me. These folks were whelk
specialists! The shell-collector
said to me, "Usually it takes a
lifetime to find a conch here,
and now I've got a bucketful
already and even some black
ones!"
Lots of people hereabouts
call whelks "conchs" so I didn't
try to correct him: I just.
admired his haul and moved
on. And then in front of me, I
saw it a thick-shelled fighting
conch fresh out of some more
tropical stretch of sand blown
here by the storm. So, yes, the
shell collector was right, there


WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster- Turley


were indeed
conchs out
there too, a
rare find for
our northern
Florida beach.
There were
other treas-
ures to be
found, lying in
clumps in the
sand. It
seemed like
different
stretches of
beach along
my walk had


different compositions of
washed up sea life. The first
half-mile or so was littered with
dead horseshoe crabs. The next
mile had cockleshells, various
clams and other bivalves.
Another stretch had mermaid's
purses, those black square egg
cases of skates, cartilaginous
relatives of sharks. And then
there was the stretch with
whelks and at least one conch.
Toss in-the mix the sand dollars
and sea stars, and there you
have it. It was a shell collector's
dream.
Although seashell collectors
were joyous, the sea turtle vol-'
unteers were more subdued
these post-storm mornings at
the beach. I'm sure most of you
noticed the exceptionally high
tides we had this past weekend,
as Hurricane Irene, still a cou-
ple of hundred miles from our
coast, made its presence known
nonetheless. One evening at
high tide Bucko and I joined
other curious visitors and resi-
dents to watch the commotion.
The beach itself was gone, with
water rushing up to the fringing
sea bats and nowhere to walk
without wading. From our safe,
dry perch on a boardwalk we
admired the forces of nature


and watched the vigorous
surfers taking advantage of the
unusually large waves, no doubt
a high point in their summer.
But all this high water and
turbulence was not good for tur-
tie eggs. More than a dozen sea
turtle nests were washed away
by the unusually high tides and
strong waves when the hurri-
cane passed by. Many more
nests were submerged for a
spell, but maybe not long
enough to kill the eggs. Time
will tell when these nests reach
their predicted hatching dates
and remaining shell fragments
and dead eggs and hatchlings
are inventoried by the turtle
patrol.
It's not only beach life that
was affected by Hurricane
Irene: Birds also got tossed in
the winds, or flew out oftheir
way to escape them. As usual
Carl Watson was the first to
notice this with Hurricane
Irene. While Irene was still
shaping up to our south, Carl
excitedly reported to me that
he saw a short-tailed hawk just
off the island. This bird is
unmistakable, at least to Carl,
with its dark back and light
belly and this was the first time
he's seen one in our area.
Usually these birds are found in
Central Florida and further
south, but at least one of them
blew in before the storm.
Just maybe if you are alert
you may also see other unusual
bird* lingering here after the
storm, and more unusual shells
to collect as well. Whenever
Nature gets churned up like
this anything is possible, so
take a look!

Scam of the Week: identity theft


One of the main scams
being perpetrated these days
is called identity theft. What
this expression means is that
someone takes important per-
sonal information about you
and uses that information to
pretend that they are you. Once
they have assumed your iden-
tity, they use your information
to withdraw money from your
bank account, charge purchas-
es to your credit cards, apply for
new credit or commit other
financial fraud in your name.
Scammers often obtain
information about you from
data stored in banks and other
financial institutions, credit card
companies, physician offices or
hospitals. You may even be at a
restaurant or shop and have
your credit card number taken
by a server or clerk. A good
example of the latter happened
on Amelia Island this spring
during a classic car exhibition
weekend. A number of cases
were reported to Seniors vs
Crime of credit cards being
used to make large purchases
although not by the actual card-
holders. One scam was averted
when the cardholder received a
call from her credit card com-
pany only minutes after the
card was used to pay for a
luncheon. The company wanted
to confirm with her a charge of
several thousand dollars from
an overseas retail shop.
Another example of this type
of fraud was cited in the news
last weekend. An 84-year-old
Florida resident reported
$32,000 missing from her bank
account. Since she had been
hospitalized and then in a reha-
bilitation center for six months,
she had failed to check on her
account. During that time
someone had changed her mail-
ing address with the bank and
her account had been charged
with several large purchases.

When you reply to the email
you are not only sharing per-
sonal information but also con-
firming that you own that email
account. Scammers can then
place software on your com-
puter without your knowledge.
Rather than answer question-
able emails, directly contact the
entity by phone that supposed-
ly sent the email.
Finally, here are some addi-
tional tips to protect you from
identity theft:
Always log off your com-
puter when you finish any finan-
cial work. Putting it to sleep
does not count. If you have
wireless computer access at
your home or office, make sure
it is password protected.
Wait until the morning to
place outgoing mail containing
personal or financial informa-


tion in your mailbox. Criminals
are known to check mailboxes
at night while it is dark and you
are sleeping.
When eating out pay in
cash if possible. If you pay with
a credit card do not give it to the
server if you can pay at the
door. If the card does not get
out of your sight, chances are
better that your credit card
number will not be stolen by a
scammer.
Shred documents con-
taining personal and financial
information before you place
them in your trash. In some
communities off Simmons
Road, dumpster diving in curb-
side trashcans has been
observed in the early morning
hours.
Think seriously before
you give your Social Security
number to anyone. If you must,
first ask for a copy of the


The bank refunded only half of
the losses in this case.
You may be contacted by
telephone or email by a person
who has obtained some of your
personal information. He then
will try to gain your trust by
citing facts he knows about you
in order to lure you into sharing
additional information. For
example, you may have recent-
ly been hospitalized and a
record of that is obtained by
the scammer. He contacts you
and identifies himself as a
Medicare representative. He
tells you that the Medicare
claim for your hospitalization
is. missing certain required
information and persuades you
to provide that information.
Then the criminal will use these
additional facts to file a false
Medicare claim in your name.
Seniors vs Crime will dis-
cuss Medicare frauds in a
future column. Meanwhile, DO
NOT give any bank account
information on the phone to
callers claiming to be Medicare
officials. A current scam is oper-
ating in Florida and North
Carolina where you are told
Medicare is sending out new
cards and needs your bank
account information for verifi-


requesting entity's policies pro-
tecting private information.
Common sense, knowledge
and staying alert can protect
you from becoming a victim of
identity theft. If all that fails and
you become a victim, call or
email Seniors vs Crime.

Project of the Florida State
Attorney General and in part-
nership with the Fernandina

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Angela
Daughtry and Garrett Pelican
of the News-Leader from oral and
written reports by the Nassau

off area with his patrol car lights
flashing, on the left side of the
right lane, signaling for oncom-
ing cars to slow down because

Guardian ad Litem



enlists volunteers


HEATHER A.- 'p .-i"
.Ne\-s Leader
Nassau County Guardian
Ad Litem invites caring adults
to become advocates for
abused, neglected and other-
wise at-risk children. This is a
place "where one person can
make a difference," said Lyn
King, volunteer
supervisor/case coordinator
for Nassau County.
After meeting the child and
learning about their situation,
the GAL makes recommenda-
tions to the court and helps to
bring about a peaceful resolu-
tion for children who have been
removed from their homes and
placed into foster care because
their parents cannot or will not
take care of them.
They listen to the child and
act as a voice for them in the
courtroom, offering the chil-
dren a sense of stability at a
time when their world may be
a frightening place. The GAL is
an important part of a team
that includes GAL staff and
attorneys.
The program began in


I Seattle, in
1976. A
judge hear-
ing depend-
ency cases
Sin Seattle felt
S" ~' that he
needed addi-
tional infor-
King m a t i o n
about the
children on a
case and he asked one of his
friends if she would be willing
to be an advocate for the chil-
dren in question. The Guardian
ad Litem Program is now in all
50 states.
In 1980 the Jacksonville
chapters of the National
Council of Jewish Women and
the Junior League partnered
and obtained one of three
national grants to create a pilot
program and the Guardian ad
Litem program was launched.
The program has since grown
to encompass Clay, Duval and
Nassau counties.
There are 23 active GALs
in Nassau County, who cover
the entire county, working with
children from birth to 18 and in


some cases remaining on a
case until the child is 19.
"All volunteers have to have
30 hours of classroom training
before they can become GALs.
All prospective volunteers have
to observe a session of court,"
King said.
Each prospective GAL has
to be fingerprinted and back-
grodnd screened before they
are certified as volunteers.
Nassau volunteers do their
classroom training in Duval
County.
To learn more about
becoming a volunteer for the
Guardian ad Litem program,

org or call 548-4903, ext 3953.
The Nassau County Guardian
ad Litem office is located at the
Nassau County Judicial Annex,

4B O OUTDOORS WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 31. 2011/NEWS-LEADE

Skipper, OUTDOORS ior angls







Skipper, Farlow area's top junior anglers


j n a lazy economy, it's often a financial bur-
tlde for young families to allow children
to participate in sports, including fishing
and golf. However, there are encouraging
moments.
The annual youth fishing clinic at Fort
Clinch State Park attracts young fishermen
and their family members to the pier. Young
anglers are treated to a morriing of fishing.
Fishing tackle, bait and lunch are free for the
participants.
I also enjoy seeing the
Fernandina Beach High
School golf team taking full
advantage of the driving
range and golf course.
However, come Wednesday
when the city course holds it
weekly blitz tournament,
-OUTDOO there are few young golfers
OUTDOORS signed up for the event.
.... "We need more young
Golfers to participate in our
SeerryLacoss weekly tournament," sea-
soned golfers often say. "When times were
normal, we had a mix of both young and old
golfers."
When his construction business slowed,
down, Donald Skipper sold his sport fishing
'boat "Miss Pamela" and teamed up with
,Southern Kingfish Association tournament
team "Bear Caught." His son, Zach,.also
'joined Croft's tournament team as a junior
.angler.
"I enjoy seeing the energy young fisher-
.,men have when they participate during a day
-of SKA tournament fishing,".Croft said. "Zach'
actually does not get along too well with rough
,seas and often takes up a more comfortable
-position on a bean bag.
"However, when a big kingfish strikes,
Zach is often one of the first team members to
fight the hooked kingfish.
"During the Fernandina Beach Fishing
'Rodeo, we actually lost a lower unit, which
kept our local fishing team fishing in close at
HH fish haven. Under the slow conditions for'
king fishing, Zach still hooked and reeled in a
19-pound kingfish that won him top honors in
the junior angler category."
Zach Skipper also won second-place junior
angler awards at the recent Golden Isles
Kingfish Tournament and was also a junior
angler aboard "Bear Caught" when Kaylee
Croft took top honors in the Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament.
Young fishermen will always find a way to
participate in the great outdoors, even during
a sagging economy.
Mathew Farlow is another prime example
of how his energy for the sport of fishing has
'won him numerous junior angler honors.
.Farlow fishes aboard Kenny Crawford's king-


fish boat "Crawfish." Other team members
include Farlow's mother, Cindy Crawford, and
team member Al Morris.
Farlow was top junior angler during highly-
competitive SKA kingfish seasons 2009 and
2010 for Division V.
When serious tournament fishing, you
have to get up long before daylight, the seas
are not always calm and summer kingfishing
can find temperatures in the high 90s.
"I always run my tournament boat as fast as
she will go," Croft said. "Zach seems to enjoy
the speedy rides to far offshore kingfish
waters. I can safely predict when Zach grows
up he will be a fine Fernandina Beach king-
fisherman."
If it weren't for the Southern Kingfish


Zach Skipper, right, is pic-
tured with his first-place
junior angler awards dur-
ing the 29th annual Fern-
andina Beach Fishing Ro-
deo. Skipper also took
second place junior angler
during the Golden Isles
Kingfish and shared first-
place junior angler honors
with Kaylee Croft during
the recent Greater Jack-
sonville Kingfish Tourna-
ment. Mathew Farlow,
above, has multiple junior
angler awards. He teased
this giant 10-pound large-
mouth bass, left, into
striking an antique surface
plug he found.
SPECIAL PHOTOS


Association-sanctioned tournaments and the
fort tournament, many of our youth fishermen
may n6t have the opportunity to enjoy one of
our best recreations.
You also have to give credit to many avid
fishermen, fathers and mothers, who take the
time to introduce young children to fishing.
There are many small lakes and ponds
where young fishermen can drop a barbed
piece of corn and pull in a nice "sunny" fish.
Watch their growing smile and y6u will also
take satisfaction in their newfound sport. A
can of corn costs around $1.50.
Tarpon fishing has been excellent during
the past few weeks for tarpon weighing to just
over 100 pounds. The best tarpon waters con-
tinue to be the oceanside of the St. Marys


south jetty rocks during the incoming tide.
Fish dead on the bottom with cut menhaden
rigged to a 6/0 circle hook.
Backcountry fishermen will also find sea
trout weighing to five pounds during the early
morning flood tide in Langford Creek and
Tiger Basin. Work a surface plug, including
the "Chug Bug" or "Junior Spook," slowly over
flooded grass bottoms and oyster bars.
Offshore fishermen will find sea bass
weighing to two pounds and gag grouper to
15-pounds at HH, FA and AH fish havens. Fish
with local squid, live cigar minnows or cut
baits dead on the bottom.
Tides Saturday will find a low tide arriving
at the mouth of the Amelia River at 7:06 a.m.
and flood tide at 1:21 p.m.

Planning talk
The Rotary Club of Amelia Island
Sunrise welcomed Rotarian
Adrienne Dessy, from the city of
Fernandina Beach Planning
Department, to speak about growth
management planning on Aug. 12.
Dessy talked about the city plan-
ning process and how it has pro-
gressed since its inception 100
years ago. The most dramatic
changes have occurred since 1985
in the area of community planning.
The goal is to bring back the idea
and function of "community" utiliz-
ing a mixed use approach. One of
the examples Dessy used was the
success of the Amelia Park develop-
ment, which focuses on smaller
homes, smaller streets and garages
set in back of the homes. It's a
walking community, and neighbors
have areas in which they can gather
and socialize. Stores and other
amenities are also within walking
distance.
The Rotary Club of Amelia Island
Sunrise meets every Friday at 7:30
a.m. at the Fernandina Beach Golf
Club. Contact president, Katey

\Vf.D\LsD.'.: A-GLST 31. 2011 AROUND TOWN News-Leader


Film on Rwanda reconciliation, director Q&A Thursday


The documentary "Coexist" examines the
unprecedented social experiment in forced rec-
onciliation 15 years after the genocide in Rwanda.
In 1994 at least 500,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutu
were slaughtered.
In the years after the genocide many perpe-
trators have been released from prison. They
often return to the villages where they terrorized
their neighbors. Survivors and perpetrators often
come face to face.
Memorial United Methodist Church will host
a screening of the 40-minute documentary on


Thursday at 6 p.m. at Maxwell Hall. 601 Centre
St., followed by a question and answer with cre-
ator/director Adam Mazo.
Through personal stories of Rwandan
survivors, perpetrators, bystanders, politicians
and journalists, "Coexist" explores the impact of
government-mandated reconciliation efforts.
While the stories focus on Rwandans, the
"Coexist" team has seen in classrooms that the
messages can resonate in the lives of students
regardless of their personal relationship with
violence.


A five-lesson Viewer's Guide accompanies
"Coexist." Through a wide range of learning
activities, the guide provides teachers with a
framework for discussing genocide, gender vio-
lence, dehumanization of victims, rehumanization
of perpetrators, the role of bystanders and the
perils of bothering and stereotyping. These
themes are quickly connected to students' per-
sonal experience with violence. The guide is
supportive of students' socio-emotional and moral
development, and helps them practice skills for
speaking truthfully, listening compassionately,


cultivating empathy and acting collaboratively to
deter violence.
"Coexist" has been nominated for an Africa
Movie Academy Award, screened at numerous
film festivals, the Peace and Justice Studies
Association Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
the Mediators Beyond Bbrders conference in
Los Angeles and the international Association of
Genocide Scholars Conference in Argentina.
More information about Coexist is available at
www.coexistdocumentary.org. For information
about the screening call the church at 261-5769.
