much to do

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Nassau 'County Manager Ted
Selby has appointed a new emer-
gency management director in Danny
Hinson.
Pointing to Hinson's experience
in the field and contacts in the region,
Selby said Hinson was the most qual-
ified candidate for the job.
"Danny Hinson has several years
working emergency management in
the Northeast Florida region," Selby
said.
Formerly a regional domestic
.security taskforce planner for
Northeast Florida, Hinson estimated
he has between 15 and 20 years in
emergency management.


"My -Ltnib;:r 'i, ,,. iail i- to meet as
many people as I can and build work-
,ing relationships with every agency
,,possible,""-linson said.
Hinson fills a vacancy left byTom
Kocheiser, who retired in July accord-
ing to Selby.
"We've got plans in place to deal
with vulnerabilities and threats to the
county," said Hinson.
At the department and the coun-
ty's disposal are numerous resources.
Specifically, Hinson touted CODE
RED, an emergency alert service cit-
izens can sign up for to receive auto-
matic alerts in the event of an emer-
gency situation an evacuation, a
contaminated water supply, a haz-


ardous material spill or a brushfire; to
name a few.
According to the department's
website, the system would allow
emergency management to telephone
the entire county within minutes,
delivering a message or instructions
suited for a given circumstance.
Text alerts are also available at
the standard rate provided through an
individual's cell phone plan, said
Hinson.
Also at emergency management's
disposal are satellite phones and a
TracStar system allowing Hinson to
run several computers and tele-

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Some Fernandina Beach residents
have asked Nassau County Commis-
sioners to consolidate city and county
governments, Commissioner Danny
Leeper said last week.
"I've received a number of calls
from city residents just angry, I guess,
at city government in general," Leeper
told commissioners at their Sept. 12
meeting. "... The county commission
has no authority over the city com-
mission and what they do. It's up to the
people to voice their concerns. If they
listen, they listen; if they don't, they
don't."
The one common thread, he said,
with every conversation he has had
with city residents is "Is there a way
for some type of county consolidation?"
"And the only thing I canr think of is


join?

that it would have to be up for refer-
endum," said Leeper.
But the issue, he acknowledged, is
complex and invites many questions.
How would one go about getting a ref-
erendum on the ballot for the voters?
How would that take place and who
would initiate it? Who would vote city
residents alone or residents of the
county entire?
"Maybe we need to do some
research; maybe we peed to talk to
(Supervisor of Elections Vicki)
Cannon. I'm sure the city of
Fernandina Beach would have to be
involved in it," Leeper mused. "What
comment do we tell our city residents
at what role we can play in the county?"
A member of the audience voiced
his solution "Move out of the city lim-
its!"

Medicare election period starts Oct.15


TALLAHASSEE Many indi-
viduals may be unaware that
the Medicare Annual Election
Period (AEP) will now start on
Oct. ,5 instead of Nov. 15.
The Florida Department of
Elder Affairs' SHINE. (Serving
Health Insurance Needs of
Elders) program understands
how difficult it can be to keep
track of all the changes related
to Medicare such as the new.
AEP dates. This is one of thie
reasons the SHINE program is
available to provide free help
for Florida Medicare benefici-
aries as they carefully evaluate
their health care options and
make selections before time
runs out on Dec. 7.
During the Annual Election
Period, Medicare beneficiaries
have the opportunity to make


changes to their Medicare
Prescription Drug-or Medicare
Advantage plans. The new AEP
allows beneficiaries seven extra
days to mak, plan choices while
avoiding the end-of-year holi-
days. Still, SHINE suggests ben-
eficiariesto review their benefits
prior to the Oct. 15 AEP start
date.
There are a variety of rea-
sons why beneficiaries should
review benefits each year or
make changes to their cover-
age. For example, individuals
often experience subtle changes
in their health over the course
of the year, and these changes
may alter the kind of care they
need. This could directly affect
their need for more or less
health insurance, the types of
prescription drugs they require

changes can also increase costs,
which can be particularly criti-
cal for Medicare beneficiaries
on fixed incomes.
Doing this type of cost-ben-
efit check is especially impor-
tant this year for those inter-
'ested in Medicare Advantage
plans, because beneficiaries are
no longer offered an open
enrollment to switch from one
Medicare Advantage plan to
another. Instead, a Medicare

approach because they're all
different."
In the cases of tropical
storms such as Hurricane
Irene, which missed the region
by miles, Hinson said their
volatile nature lends an added
*level of importance to exer-
cising caution. It is imperative
to .have contingency plans in
place, he added.
"Every time I see a storm
form, I need to think of two
things. One, are we going to be
impacted, and two, are we
going to be a host for evacuat-
ed individuals?"
Still, Hinson reiterated,
emergency management coor-
dinates support efforts for all
manners of emergency. At the
helm of these efforts, Hinson
said he wants to bolster coun-
ty resources and expertise by

COUNTY
Continued from lA
County Manager Ted Selby
said he would need to meet with
County Attorney David Hallman
to research the issue.
"I do not know the answer to
how you would initiate that at
the present time, but I will find
out," said Selby.
Commissioner Steve Kelley,
whose district includes parts of
Amelia Island, shared that he
had received complaints in the
same vein.
"Whatever the procedure is,
we ought to at least take a look
at it," he added.
As a commissioner living in
District 1, Leeper's constituen-
cy is the city of Fernandina
Beach, while Kelley's con-
stituency of District 2 encom-
passes South
Amelia Island,
Nassauville and
O'Neil. "
In June,
Nassau County
and Fernandina
Beach officials
discussed the Leeper
possibility of
*consolidating
the city and county fire depart-,
ments during a meeting of the
Amelia Island Joint Local
Planning Agency, a combina-
tion of both commissions.
Leeper noted then that con-
solidation had been recom-
mended by a consultant in a
study of the county's emergency
services.
Among the consolidation
proposals subsequently floated
was one for the city to take over
the county fire station on Amelia
Island. The city took over life-
guard duties on county beaches
this year.
The commissioners were
expected to discuss the topic in
,their next joint meeting.

Authorities hooked a
Jacksonville man for posses-
sion of a whole stone crab
around 5 p.m. Sept. 11, accord-
ing to a police report.
Officials with the state
Department of Environmental
Protection were conducting a
fisheries inspection that after-
noon when a member of the
man's party told them the man
was carrying the group's
catches to the parking area at
Little Talbot Island State Park,
police said.
Inside the bucket he car-
ried the man had a whole
stone crab. De'vante
Christopher Alexander, 18,
became uncooperative when
officers asked him who caught
the creature, according to the
report.
Possession of a whole stone
crab is a misdemeanor offense
under state law. Because the
stone crab can regenerate its
claws three to four times,
fishermen may take claws at
least 2 3/4 inches long and are
then required to return the
crabs safely to the water,
according to the Florida
Department of Agriculture and

Message of austerity


John Crawford is heading
out on a road show with sober-
ing news for any politicians
who are still punch-drunk on
spending.
Government at all levels -
will experience "shrinking tax
revenues for some time to
come," he says.
Crawford is qualified with
such opinions. He is the clerk
of circuit courts and the comp-
troller for Nassau County. As
part of his duties, he oversees
the county's finances, including
some $60 million set aside for
capital projects and reserves.
Others should heed
Crawford's message. He'll tell
his story of austerity to any-
one who'll listen citizens,
organizations, and, of course,
political leaders.
He's not trying to be sen-
sational or dramatic. He
believes with the conviction of
a judge that property values in
the state are not going to
rebound anytime soon. This
would mean the primary driv-
er of tax receipts for Florida
municipalities will continue
along a long-term detour.
As property values decline
because of a surplus of fore-
closures and short sales in
Florida, fewer taxes are gen-
erated unless political leaders
hike tax rates. Otherwise, gov-
ernment spending must con-
tinue to be curtailed. Instead of
music to their ears, this is a
depressing message that most
politicians don't want to hear,
on local or state levels.
"It's not over it's just
beginning," says Crawford
about declining tax receipts.
"And politicians are in denial.
They don't get it ... from the
courthouse to the White'
House."
So Crawford has assumed a

senger and

- whether

"I'm going to
put it out in

v i e w, "
Crawford


Steve Nicklas says.
Crawford
shows a color-coded map of
Florida that details delinquent
or foreclosed mortgages by
county. In Nassau County,
more than 10 percent of mort-
gages are in trouble as of June.
In neighboring Duval
County, the rate is slightly
lower. But in South Florida, the
delinquencies of at least 90
days range from 15 to,25 per-
cent. This backlog will inevit-
ably impact existing valuations,
since distressed properties
mostly sell at discounted
prices.
"We're fixing to get inun-
dated (with foreclosures),"'
Crawford says. "We've always
felt immune in Nassau
County."
This will also impact state
revenues. This past year, Flor-
ida legislators have to plug a $3
billion budget shortfall. Next
year will be as bad, or worse.
Within the county, some

Financial planning
An adult-education course


government bodies are raising
tax rates to circumvent the
declining property values. In
Fernandina Beach, city com-
missioners even went out and
borrowed $5.6 million for new
projects.
Crawford winces at the
thought of frivolous and irra-
tional spending. He has urged
county commissioners here to
avoid such temptations, even
with interest rates at historic
lows.
"Here's our neighbor ... bor-
rowing money," Crawford says.
"I worry about it infecting our
county commissioners."
Nassau County has com-
piled a sufficient safety net of
reserves. But with $67 million
in debt and another $30 mil-
lion required to service these
obligations, Crawford is urg-
ing commissioners to shun
debt and follow a path of fru-
gality. (County departments
have reduced spending by as
much as 10 percent each of the
past few years.)
"All of. the assumptions
we've been able to rely on are
all changing," Crawford says.
"Our needs are met. We didn't
come here today on a dirt
road."
Hopefully, the road leading
from here will be one of pros-
perity.

HEATH ER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Michelle Pickar definitely
did not let retirement slow her
down. She took up new hob-
bies like woodworking, bas-
ketry and Ukrainian egg mak-
ing, and continued to enjoy
biking and weight training.
But a new and exciting chal-
lenge was about to enter her
life.
"Little did I know I was in for
a huge learning experience
when I met Nancy and her com-
panion, a Project Chance serv-
ice dog named.Apple. I was
immediately .intrigued and
entertained the idea of being a
volunteer puppy raiser.
Truthfully, as the saying goes,
they had me at hello.'"
Pickar fell in love with her
Project Chance puppy, Ozlow.
A beautiful white golden
retriever, Ozlow proved to be
a real handful for a person,
who had not lived with a puppy
in 10 years, a large puppy in 20
years, and a shedding puppy
over 30.
"It was a new challenge to
learn proper obedience train-
ing of dogs and I love learning
new things and keeping busy,"
said, Pickar, who quickly dis-
'coveied that training Ozlow was
going to demand a lot of her
time and energy as she spent
longer periods of time with the
family and finally came to stay
full-time.
In the months ahead, Ozlow
went nearly everywhere Pickar
went, including the market,
drug store, movies, restaurants,
voting, beach, doctors and den-
tists.
She learned to ride trolleys,
boats, elevators, escalators and


Project Chance
Project Chance trains canine companions for children worth
autism, multiple sclerosis and various other mental or physi-
cal challenges. For more information or to donate to Project
Chance, a 501 (c)3 nonprofit, charitable organization, call

. people movers.
"She was always well-
behaved in public and
impressed people, but she was
not a puppy for the faint of heart
or a novice handler."
As are most of her breed,
Ozlow is a calm, intelligent dog
who is also a bit of a comedian.
"She made me laugh a lot.
I came to believe that she loved
the sound of human laughter
and was bright enough to
invent new ways to achieve it,
especially when I was feeling
down."
Whenever Ozlow rotated
back to the kennel for addi-
tional training, Pickar pitched in
to raise her siblings.
"I hosted both her brother,
Owen, and her sister, Archer
during those times. Each was
unique from the other; both
were easy to integrate into my,
family. Archer even flew to
Portland, Oregon with me.
Needless to say, I fell in love
with both of them, too."
Pickar will be the first to tell
any prospective puppy raiser
that it takes a great deal of time
and dedication to train a service
dog.
"In addition to the time
spent on leash work, which nor-
mally amounted to half an hour
a day, I had to schedule time
to learn how to handle the dog
and reinforce her training;, I had
to schedule time to go on puppy


outings with the group; I had to
add a half hour to each trip to
the store since many people
stopped us and asked questions
about our organization; I had
to vacuum more often; and I
had to make sure I always
packed the car with water,
copies of state and federal laws
regarding service dogs, plastic
bags, bug spray and a lint
roller," says Pickar.
People always ask Pickar if
it isn't hard to give the dogs up
once they are ready to make
their forever home with a spe-
cial child.
"A year ago I would easily
answer that question. These
days I have difficulty even open-
ing my mouth to answer the
question and if I do, you'd be
lucky to get a choked out yes
and no," said Pickar.
"I am as protective of every
one of them that has graced my
home as I am each member of
my family, yet I want them to
succeed at the job I helped train
them to do. When I see the mir-
acles and radical changes in the
lives of our special children and
their families, I know my pups
have found their forever job and
I could not be prouder or hap-
pier in their achievements," she
said.
Pickar shares her home
with her husband, Paul, and
their Chinese Crested, Poco.

VIEWPOINT/ADRIENNE DESSY/CITY OF FERNANDINA BEACH



Fernandina's hidden


There have been a few questions and con-
cerns lately about the issue of archaeology in
the city. How did this discussion begin? The
answer lies in a couple of activities that the city
is working on related to archaeology.
Why archaeology?
Our island has been home to Native
Americans, French, Spanish and English set-
tlers. Native Americans maintained a
presence on the island since approximately
2000 B.C., and Europeans first arrived in
1562. Our community is rich in historical and
cultural significance. We've done a good job of
protecting our historic buildings, but not as
much is known about our archaeological
resources. The last comprehensive study of
this area was in the 1950's. Archaeology is
more than just bones and pottery shards; it's
also things like building foundations and ship-
wrecks. It helps us learn about how people
lived in the past.
The city's interest is to help protect these
resources that add to knowledge of our com-
munity's heritage and quality of life. This helps
attract visitors, businesses and new residents.
We recognize the need to strike a balance,
between protection and development At the
same time, we want to learn more about the
area's archaeological resources, which can con-
tribute to a greater community understanding
of our history.
The city also has an interest in an economi-
cally healthy community. Heritage resources
can be a key player in our economy. A 2010
University of Florida study indicates that in
Florida in 2007-2008:
Heritage tourism generated $4.13 billion,
Historic rehabilitation generated $2.03 bil-
lion and
History museum operations generated
$97.5 million.
Historic resources can mean money, and
jobs. Locally, our downtown and Old Town his-
toric districts and our Museum of History
attract thousands of visitors, and employ many,
including architects, contractors and those in
the hospitality and service industries.


What we are doing
The first archaeology activity the city is
working on is related to the city's
Comprehensive Plan update. The proposed
updates to the city Comprehensive Plan
include a Historic Preservation Element. The
policy in this element that has garnered some
attention directs the city to work on land devel-
opment code regulations regarding archaeolog-
ical protection. For the language, visit
www.fbfl.us/EAR to review Objective 11.02 of
the Historic Preservation Element
Many Florida communities have archaeo-
logical protection ordinances in part to address
what is not covered under state statutes, which.
address digging on state lands and what to do
when bones are found. The state statutes do
not address local public lands or private proper-
ty. The range of local protection ordinances
varies. Some communities direct only public
property be regulated, while others regulate
public and private property.
The common theme is that these ordi-
nances do not stop development, and they do
not involve taking of property. The goal is to
document and protect the resources prior to
development. Construction and development
actually can be a protector for these resources,
as they prevent any further disturbance. But
knowing they are there, and having a chance to
study them first, is very valuable.
The second archaeology activity the city is
working on is an archaeological predictive
model The city received a $12,500 grant earlier
this year from the Florida Division of Historical
Resources to conduct this model. This model.
will tell us areas of high, medium or low proba-
bility for archaeological resources within city
limits.
What we are not doing
We have no existing regulations directing
property owners to have to do anything regard-
ing archaeology and nothing has been passed
requiring archaeological fees.
We are not establishing any procedure or
requirements for archaeological surveys on
any city property, private or public, through the


heritage

comprehensive plan policies.
The policies direct us, as the city, to explore
an archaeological ordinance in the future. St.
Augustine is an example of a strict protective
ordinance, and it has not stopped development
in their historic districts. But that type of ordi-
nance may not be right for Fernandina Beach.
It would be the city's job to evaluate what may
work in our community, based on available
archaeological information AND community
input. No ordinance has been drafted at this
time.
Keep in mind, any proposed ordinance
would go through the public process, so there
is plenty of time for input in the future.
Proposed language would start with the
Historic District Council, move to the Planning
Advisory Board and then ultimately come
before the city commission. These meetings
are all public hearings, and community input is
welcome. The commission has the ability to
adopt, change or deny any proposed ordinance.
We are not spending extra money on the
predictive model we received a grant, so
while we have to expend the $12,500, that
money will be fully reimbursed by the state.
The predictive model would serve as a basis
for any archaeological protection ordinance,
providing a professional opinion of the location
of potential archaeological resources. However,
the model is also being created for information-
al and educational purposes. This type of study
has not been conducted before in our area, and
this helps add to the knowledge base of our
community's archaeological resources. Even if
an archaeological protective ordinance is never
enacted, this model will still be beneficial for-
learning more about our community heritage.
You can visit www.fbfl.us/historicdistrict to
stay current on the city's historic preservation
activities, and I encourage anyone, if you have
any questions about this issue, or any related to
historic preservation, please feel free to contact
me at any time. I can be reached at 277-7325,
ext. 259 or adessy@fbfl.org.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE'


PayingFPU
An insert in a recent Florida Public
Utilities bill stated "effective Nov. 1,
FPU will no longer offer 'walk in' or
'drop off' service at our local offices."
The convenience of being able to
drop off payments or to discuss issues
or problems with an FPU representa-
tive is of great benefit to Fernandina
residents and cannot be emphasized
enough.
Another great benefit of maintain-
ing the local FPU office is being able

Questions
I have a few things that I wonder
about from time to time. I have a mind
that doesn't seem to want to take a
vacation so I,get these questions
in it that I like to throw out and
maybe someone out there can answer
them:
1) Why is gasoline in Jacksonville
10 to 15 cents cheaper? I mean I go to
Jax a couple times a week and the
price tonight at a station I regularly
pass was 14 cents cheaper than any-
place I know of in.Nassau County. I
cannot believe the .cost to bring it up
here would be more than a cent a gal-
lon and I know out commissioners
repealed the extra 5 cents they added
a few years back. So are the gas taxes
in Nassau that much higher or do the
sellers here figure we're a bunch of
rubes and charge us that much more?
I will be buying my gas in Duval unless
it is an emergency.
2) Why is the speed limit on Amelia
Concourse 35 mph?This road is a bet-
ter road than SR 200, has acceleration
lanes and deceleration lanes at practi-
cally all exits and crossroads, while
SR 200, even at most crossroads, does
not. And the Concourse is a limited
access road. SR 200's posted speed is
55 (most places), Blackrock, Chester
and Miner are mostly 45 mph and
none of these is near the road Amelia
Concourse is. So how cone?
3) Speaking of Chester Road, why
for three months has the construction
company needed to shut the road
down to one lane every weekday?
Why, when they closed the road at the
train tracks, did they not complete the
roadwork to the tracks all at one time?
Will they ever finish? Curious people
want to know!
4) And last, I know the mills have
been here forever but can someone
tell me if they pay some sort of tariff
for every load to pay for the damage
they do to SR 200? I mean, they clog
the road, some truckers are not cour-
teous so far as letting other traffic
through but the big question to me is
do they pay for tearing up the pave-
ment? Gosh, except for my newest car
(cross my fingers) I have gotten hit by
gravel or rocks from their loads and
had my windshield damaged,


I have had dings to my car from debris
from trees and torn up paving. The
state came in to do an emergency
repair because of this. I believe it
affects my insurance. Heck, I ran into
a worker with a company that does
windshield repairs and replacements
and he told me that he never stops
fixing windows in Nassau County!
Shouldn't the offender pay for his
offenses?
Anyone out there got answers?
Anyone else out there wonder about
these things?

Too much government?
Kudos for the letter ('Too much
government?" Sept. 14). The claim
that government is too big is part of a
long-term propaganda campaign con-
ducted by the wealthy and big busi-
ness to increase their wealth.
To stop programs such as Lyndon
Johnson's "Great' Society" and "War
on Poverty," the wealthy realized they
had to control government at all its
levels. So they launched a propaganda
campaign to con people into believing
that government is too big and every-
one would be better off if the wealthy
were allowed to get richer. That's why
so much money comes from the
wealthy and big business to help elect
politicians who will support the con-
cept of "small government."
These politicians who serve the
wealthy and big business cut budgets
for education and other programs that
help the poor and disabled. They pack
the courts with people who allow unre-
stricted campaign spending by corpo-
rations so they can stay in power.
"Trickle-down economics" is part of
this propaganda campaign. It is phony
economics. It doesn't trickle anywhere.
During the eight years of the Reagan
presidency when this ersatz econom-
ic theory was in full force, some 90
percent of the wealth created went to
1 percent of the population. There are
many published studies that show that
the monetary spread between the
wealthy and the middle class (not to
mention the poor) has increased sub-
stantially over the past 30 years.
One way the economic playing field
is leveled is through government pro-
grams. For example, if government
puts money into education, then those
who cannot otherwise afford good
education can receive it and become
productive members of society. But
because the money that would go to
improve education opportunities
would come from taxes on the wealthy,
the wealthy are opposed to this. This
is what is behind the "smaller gov-
ernment" campaign.

thinks that every event must be host-
ed downtown, but I can assure you
that the beach was the perfect venue.
It was great weather, great scenery
and great music. I would like to com-
pare it to Metro Park in Jacksonville,
but I can't. 'It was far better than any
event that I have ever been to at Metro
Park because it was here in our own
backyard at the beach.
The people were having fun, the
staff was friendly and the police offi-
cers were courteous. This was so the
opposite of what you experience in
Jacksonville. I certainly hope that it
was a success (financially) so that they
will return again next year. And I hope
this starts a trend of events at Main
Beach. The beach is the best resource
that we have and we should use it
more often. Maybe one day we will
have annual events there. One can
only hope!
Again, thank you to all of the folks
that worked so hard at pulling this off
and thank you to all of the sponsors
that made it happen.

Assassin replies
When I read the letter to the editor
Sept. 14,1 wondered at the astounding
naivete and complete lack of under-
standing. (The letter writer) stated
that I "would have been legally and
morally bound to remain fully silent
until the government declassified each
and every event" referred to in ("The
assassin in winter") in the newspaper
Sept. 7.as a great many of those events
took place some 45 years ago. One
wonders, since she mentioned how
she cheered when Osama bin Laden
"was brought down," if she realizes, as
highly classified as. that operation was
just a matter of months ago, that a
movie is being made of the event. It
will be playing in our theaters some
time next year. Not only that, but it
seems that the producers of that film
have been granted full access to near-
ly all the classified material pertain-
ing to the operation by none other


than the White House.
(The letter writer) attacked the
newspaper's editorial team for not
doing their job in verifying all the
events in that article. Well, I find that
to be incredible, but I truthfully have
no idea what was verified by the news-
paper. /
I do know that travel documenta-
tion and employment records both for
the United States and for Israel and
other places can be verified. If you
were to approach Mossad and ask
them if they sanction assassinations,
however, I pretty much know what
their answer will be.
The book she refers to as "fantasy
entertainment" contains forewords by
an Israeli prime minister and a U.S.
ambassador. The book also contains a
. quote from (Venezuelan President)
Hugo Chavez and other well-known
individuals, all referencing the book.
All of that I would imagine can be
checked and verified as well. The team
of editors who worked on the book,
and those good people who con-
tributed to it, worked diligently to
ensure that everything in the book
was verified. It does not glorify the
killings at all, instead, it points to the
horrific nature of that work.
Perhaps before sending out hate-
filled venomous letters to editors about
subject matters she has virtually no
knowledge of, or about a book she's
never even seen or read, she should do
her homework. Freedom of speech
and expression is one thing, and it
should be openly cherished by all of
us, but to spew anger and vitriol for no
apparent reason is just simply wrong
on so many levels.
Because of such an enormous level
of misunderstanding and misconcep-
tions regarding the sanctioned taking
of lives both by the United States,
Israel and some other countries, the
sole intent of my book was to inform
and to clarify. The book was written not
to make any money whatsoever. It was
finished and published because a
promise was made to a dying man,
and that promise was kept. It is, quite
honestly, just that simple.


I find it odd how someone who is
obviously somewhat intelligent goes
out of her way to attack in such a
vicious and voracious manner and with
so little knowledge at her fingertips.
You see, not only does she attack the
newspaper but in so doing she also
attacks the very people who are near
and dear to my heart, those with
whom I have worked. She attacks
everyone who has ever been in com-
bat and she attacks me as well.
What she also doesn't know is that
I never approached the newspaper
about doing an article on me or the
book, they approached me about it.
When they did approach me about it,
I was encouraged by someone I know
very well to grant the interview.
She attacks the notion of govern-
mients sponsoring the taking of lives,
while in the next sentence acknowl-
edges that that does indeed happen.
She apparently just never realized the
extent of it. Today we have Predator
drones doing much of that work for us,
but it's important to remember that
every drone has a human hand that
controls what it does. We sometimes
forget that. I wished we had drones
backwhen Iwas a young guy. We did-
n't.
I was told to just "let it go" as she
is only one voice. But groundless
attacks that purposefully hurt and
inflict unnecessary pain should never
be ignored. Perhaps it was that selec-
tion of photographs the newspaper
used that initially drew her ire.
Perhaps it was because the article
appeared on the front page and wasn't
buried somewhere in the back as I
had imagined it would be.
Now, about the silly contradictory
gun range and shooting comments
she made, the last time I fired any
weapon at all was about three weeks
ago in Alabama. We targeted plastic
bottles hanging from tree limbs and
had a wonderful time. I do not go
hunting anything besides paper tar-
gets and once in awhile some plastic
bottles.

t's that time of year
again! The ospreys in our
area are grouping up. to
take advantage of the fall
runs of mullet in our shallow
waters. And the ospreys from
further north are heading
south to do the same.
This time of year it's
impossible, for me at least, to
determine our residents from
those visitors. It's this time of
year, though, that I'm sure
they can tell each other apart.
What better time to socialize
and look for a future mate if
you are a young osprey shar-
ing the bounty of the sea with
others of your kin from near
and far?
Now as fall arrives there's
an osprey on every pole
seems like. Not a "chicken in
every pot" but close enough. I
notice this especially when I
visit Fort Clinch State Park.
At the beach and pier parking
lot there are two tall utility
poles and within sight, at the
administration office, there
are three more. Now, most
often when I look at all five
poles, on the top of each one,
yes, there's an osprey.
Ospreys catch fish in the
water, diving abruptly and
grabbing their catch with
their talons. In the air again,
they shift their fish around so
that it faces forward, in a ther-
modynamically correct posi-
tion, to avoid the excess drag
it would involve if the fish
were carried tail first. And

County urged to thwart



'dangerous dog attacks'

GARRETT PELICAN


Residents urged the.Nassau
County Commission to investi-
gate dog attack procedures
after a pair of neighbors' pit bull
terriers mauled their Yorkshire
terrier.
Joined by his wife Brenda,
Jeff Siebenaller of Yulee told
commissioners of the Aug. 13
attack that led them to eutha-
nize Oscar, their 10-year-old
Yorkie.
The mauling, he said,
occurred around 7:30 p.m.
while Brenda watered the flow-
ers at their Scarlet Oaks Court
home in Yulee. Oscar, who had
joined Brenda outside, sat on
the driveway -before a pair of
the neighbor's pit bulls
chargedd over" and attacked
him.
"Several deep wounds to the
back and neck including shear-
ing off 50 percent of his wind-
pipe caused us to put him down
later in the wee hours of the
next morning, and even after
emergency surgery,"
Siebenaller recalled.
"We respectfully request this
commission to order an inves-
tigation to policies and proce-
dures involving dangerous dog
attacks on domestic animals or
human beings," heread from a
prepared statement. "In our
case, the (pit bulls) could not
distinguish between small prey
and a valued pet. Let's try to
prevent this from happening
again, possibly to a small child."
Following the mauling, the
couple filed a report with
Nassau County Animal Control,
the sheriff's office and their
homeowners' association
board, he said.
"The police do not get
involved unless dangerous ani-
mals are used perpetrating a
crime or unless a human being
is attacked," he said.
Siebenaller commended
Animal Services Director
Deborah Biggs and Animal
Control Officer Frank Stiles for
their work in response to the
mauling, but stopped short of
saying the issue had been
resolved.
"They did what they are
allowed to do to our very nice
but negligent neighbors; they
gave them a warning," he said.
In Nassau County,
Siebenaller said, a dog can kill

three pets on separate
occasions before Animal
Control can claim them for
euthanasia.
"Warning one is a form
sheet," he said, "warning two is
declaration of a dog as 'dan-
gerous' requiring all kinds of
onerous control parameters -
and the third time the animal is
taken and put down."
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson said she had been
working with County Manager
Ted Selby and Biggs to explore
revisions to be made to current
ordinances, specifically the
adoption of a .'.. I ill; i dan-
gerous dog" ordlinance used by
other counties.
"I too am sorry for the loss,
but this is something that needs
to be addressed sooner rather
than later," said Commissioner
Danny Leeper. "So if we could
bring that one policy change
back to us as quickly as possi-
ble."
Siebenaller pointed to a state
law that designates a dog as
"dangerous" if it maims or kills


a domestic animal while off the
owner's property. The first inci-
dent would involve a warning;
in the event of a second inci-
dent, the dog would be put
down.
Taking the discussion a step
further, Commissioner Barry
Holloway asked County
Attorney David Hallman -
"Doesn't state law take prece-
dence over our local (law)?"
Citing state law, Hallman
told Holloway, "I can do some
research, if it's this board's
direction to see if you want to
tighten that up, and bring back
some recommendations."
"I'd like to see that done,"
Holloway said. "With the
board's permission, please look
at that."
"Our Oscar is gone after
almost 11 years of total fun and
pleasure of us," Seibenaller
said. "You can help make sure
his loss is not in vain. A 10-
pound Yorkie or any small pet is
no match for a'O0- to 80-pound
pit bull."

Chemistry, crime on



real' teachers docket


HEATH ER A. PERRY
News-Leader

Sarah Bell has a rare com-
bination of talents. As both a
lawyer and a chemist, those
talents are focused on her new
role as adjunct professor of
chemistry at Florida State
College at Jacksonville.
Bell received her chemistry.
credentials in her native New
York before relocating here in
August 2009 with her hus-
band's family to open Science
First. The firm offers products
for instructors of physics,
anatomy, biology, Earth and
space, and the environment.
Bell earned her JD at the
Florida Coastal School of Law
in Jacksonville.
Taking careful notes dur-
ing college and law school and
transcribing those.notes into a
study guide is a process she's
eager to share with her stu-
dents.
Her eyes light up and her
love of teaching shines through
as she relates how much she
wants to be "one of the good
teachers."
"I taught in grad school, but
this will be. my first time as a
'real teacher.' I'm nervous, but
I think once I get that first class
behind me, itwill go better."


Chemis-
try isn't the
only thing
Bell will be
teaching.
She's also
slated to in-
struct wann-

Bell agents in the
Crime Scene-
Nassau
course at the Lifelong Learning
Center at FSCJ. The class
meets from 10 a.m. to noon on
six Tuesdays, Oct. 11 through
Nov. 15.
"The course will follow the
life cycle of a crime," said Bell.
Presentations will include
criminal law, forensic science,
criminal procedure, defen-
dants' rights and a discussion
of the time frame of law.
"We'll also have some group
activities so it should be really
interesting."
Bell looks forward to dis-
pelling some of the bad science
and rumors associated with
forensic science.
The busy mother of "almost
three-year-old" Matthew cites
her leisure activities as cook-
ing, reading and spending time
outdoors with her family.
"The close proximity of the
FSCJ campus to my home has


allowed me to focus my
remaining precious time and
energy on my young son's edu-
cational and personal growth
and development," said Bell,
who is treasurer for the PTO
board at 'the Amelia Island
Montessori School her son
attends.
She also volunteers with
Communities in Schools.
Her love of teaching shines
through again as she discuss-
es sharing the process for good
note ,taking with the seventh
graders she mentors at Fern-
andina Beach Middle School.
"School can be kind of over-
whelming but once you have
the process down, thafs a great
help. I enjoy helping others
along the pathway to academ-
ic success. I hope that my stu-
dents have a desire to learn
and that they are able to use
their ambition and dedication
to master the course materi-
al," she said.

Seniors vs Crime

A Special Project of the Florida Attorney General




Scam of the Week:



unreliable contractors


There are good and bad contractors.
Fortunately Northeast Florida is blessed with
many honest and reliable small contractors. Today
we will give you some pointers that should help
you avoid being taken advantage of by the few that
are not reputable.
Seniors vs Crime has had seven complaints
from residents that thought they had been ripped
off by unscrupulous contractors. Three of those
concerned the same out of town locksmith that
ve;':hI argued elderly residents and in two cases
scared them into doing costly, unnecessary work.
As of two weeks ago, the same locksmith was
seen in downtown Fernandina Beach working on
a vehicle that had the keys locked inside. He
was parked next to the car in a brand new SUV
Mt. .." h t r:l,,-, mpany's name on the side. It adver-
: tied him as "locallyowned and operated," which
we know is notthe case. The owner of the.car told
a me diui h ia \ w rthi 'ifly responder when he
S attempted to find a local company td help get
tm int., his car.
W\h.-n you need a contractor to assist you in
'doing a job that you are unable to do yourself,
here i-re. afew ground rules for you to remember:
S Always get an estimate from at least two con-
: ractors. before you start your project. Consider
the quailiy of .']if k \,u are aniilipaling as price

-ting a contractor, ,

r:.; b)rs who may have had'. inmilar %virk done and
aein a good position to recommend a contrac-
tor.
3. Contact the Better Business Bureau at (904)
S721-2288 or through -their website -
www.bbb.nefla.org and inquir.-- about the com-
pany's rating and:reputati.on
4 Chiooseacoiintractiori lhat i.licensed,insured
and b,'ndd. Itf a building permit is required for
the work, .have the contractor obtain it and post
it on the site. Do not take his word that the work
doe not require a permit You tan check with the
city 'ii co.,unty if necessary.


5. Do not agree to pay in advance, The con-
tractor may ask that you pay for materials up
front but this opens the door for a disappearing
act That being said, if the contractor has a good.
reputation and the price of materials is less than
half of the entire project cost, you may want to,
consider helping him out.
6. Once the work has started, resist adding or.
changing the scope of the work. Chang,:e rd rs
are expensive and may delay the time it~tak-es t
finish the job. Remember time is money too and ,;
some contractors will lowball the initial price in'
anticipation of making their profit from. chan e--
In any event, you should not ,:.'pect the contrac-:

Cool f

F finally cool fall weath-
er has arrived along
with very cool fishing
action and what many
local Northeast Florida fisher-
men claim is simply the best
time of year to wet a fishing
line and enjoy some of the
best fishing action. Personally
the months of September,
October and November are,
without a doubt, my favorite
time c.f y-ar while targeting a
wide variety of both salt and
freshwater gamefish.
Adam Atkinson, Bobby
Arthur and Troy Travis
recently trailered a 22-foot
Triton bay boat from Nash-
ville, Tenn., to Amelia Island
for two days of early fall salt-
water fishing action. At the
end of their two-day fishing
adventure, they had encoun-
tered a variety of saltwater
gamefish while fishing deep
water fish haunts.
In many situations of fall
saltwater fishing action, a
variety of huge saltwater
gamefish can be hooked but
not always landed. Hooking
and actually landing one of
these island saltwater giants
is a great'task for even the
seasoned angler.
Offshore deepwater drift
fishermen often tangle with'
giant fish while tempting
deepwater gamefish with
whole fish or cut pieces of
fish. Dropping such large
baits down deep on the top of
a sunken wreck or large lime
rock ledge during the fall fish-
ing season is simply asking
for trouble.
"I can't do a thing with this
big fish. As hard as I reel, I
simply cannot move this big
fish up off from the bottom
structure," Arthur said. "My
reel drag is locked down all
the way tight, yet I haven't
been able to budge this fish
one inch."
A split second later,
Arthur's 80-pound fluorocar-
bon shock leader parted.
Evidently his big grouper had
won that battle and sawed the
heavy shock leader off on a
deepwater limerock ledge.
The Tennessee fishing
party continued to battle with
gag grouper, black sea bass
and reef sharks before navi-
gating to the mouth of the St.
Marys inlet. Arthur continued
his luck by landing a giant
"bull" red.
The next morning they
returned to the.same deep
jetty waters and enjoyed fish-
ing encounters with bull reds,
sharks and high-leaping tar-
pon.
The day before, Capt. Bill
Suplee had released 18 bull
redfish and three tarpon to
100 pounds while fishing the
same deep St. Marys south
jetty waters. Capt. Cris
Holland returned from off-
shore fishing with a cooler
slam full of triggerfish,,
grouper and black sea bass.
"I really enjoy the fall fish-
ing action," Capt. Benny
Hendrix said. "My guests get
a real kick out of catching


fishing

those big
bull redfish.
We also tar-
get tarpon,
cobia, floun-
der and a
wide variety
of sharks
during the
AOd L, fall fishing
eOUTDOORS season.
"What's
TerryLacoss. really nice is
you don't
have to run too-far. Some of
the best fishing action comes
from the deep waters of
Cumberland Sound, which is
located just a couple of miles
from our charter boat docks
located at the Fernandina
Harbor Marina."
Adam Loud also looks for-
ward to Amelia Island's fall
fishing season, but his fishing
is directed to extremely shal-
low saltwater, where redfish
tails poke from the shallows,
begging fishermen to come
and catch them.
"We have some extremely
high tides during the fall,"
Loud said. "Spartina marshes
-often become flooded when
we have a hard northeast
wind, particularly when a new
or full moon occurs. Redfish
will navigate all the way to the
shallow edges of the marsh,
where they feed on fiddler
crabs.
"My favorite redfish lure is
a plastic shrimp or crab
rigged to a 1/8-ounce jig
head."
Sea trout champion Jimmy
Stubbs also looks forward to
the fall fishing season and
area trout tournaments.
"Amelia Island has some
of the largest sea trout in the
southeast," Stubbs said. "As
the water temperature begins
to cool 'and a major shrimp
spawn takes place, you can
bet the sea trout action will be
the best of year.
"I typically look for cloudy
days, early morning and late
evening hours to produce
some of the best 'gator' trout
fishing action. Minnow-type
plastics in the color white
rigged to led head jigs have
produced my largest sea
trout."
Stubbs recently hooked
and lost what may have been
a new Florida state record
spotted sea trout. His largest
speck weighed 12 pounds and
is on display at the Amelia
Angler Outfitters.
Flounder fishing is also
excellent during the fall fish-
ing season with some of the
best action coming fiom the
Fernandina port all the way to
the little jetty rocks located at
historical Fort Clinch.
Barbing live bullhead min-
nows or finger mullet head
first to a 1/4-ounce jig head
and swimming the deadly
flounder combo slowly along
a rough bottom produces
summer flounder to 14
pounds. Many seasoned
flounder fishermen prefer to
target the high falling tide
right down to low water.


action

Look for many of the feed-
ers creeks that make up both
the upper Nassau and upper
St. Marys river systems to
produce a mix bag of stripers,
'flounder, redfish, sea trout
and largemouth bass fishing
action this fall. Working a 1/4-
ounce led head jig rigged to a
shrimp plastic tail is a deadly
combo for all of these species
of gamefish.
The Inshore Fishing -
Association will hold a one-
day redfish tournament Oct.
8. The popular event will be
held from the Fernandina
Harbor Marina. Visit

High Tide brings in seafood for lunch


Two local *businesses that are his-
toric district neighbors will join to
offer a special event. Marry one of
Amelia Island's favorite seafood
sources, Atlantic Seafood, with
Amelia Island's popular Florida
House Inn and you have a winner.
The two are partnering for the High
Tide Women's Weekend's luncheon
on Saturday, Sept. 24. Focusing on
the theme of Great Waters (our
oceans, rivers and marshes) the
luncheon will offer up the best of
local seafood.
Long a favorite of folks seeking
the freshest of local seafood, Atlantic
Seafood is located on the Amelia
River at the base of Ash Street. The
shrimp and grouper served will be
local and fresh caught. The first


shrimp marketed
for food consump-
tion were Atlantic

The Florida House Inn is on the
National Register of Historic Places


and is considered the oldest continu-
ously run inn or rooming house
operated in Florida. It was an essen-
tial part of David Yulee's ambitious
plans for building Florida's first rail-
road.
The hotel was a hub where
important people stayed room for
quests. The dining room proved
very successful and served such
notables as the Carnegies, Morgans
and Duponts. Of the Carnegies it
was said, they stayed at the Florida
House, played at the Palace Saloon
and prayed at St. Peter's Episcopal
Church. The inn is once again a hub
for fine dining thanks to Susannah
Sands.
Susannah Sands, the historic
inn's talented chef, has created a


special menu that will feature
Fernandina shrimp and grits and
Florida grouper with mango-
orange dressing served on chilled
greens. Completing the mouth-
watering lunch spinach souffle,
biscuits and a-cold lemon souffle for
dessert.
Sands already has an enthusiastic
following since opening the Florida
House dining room opened earlier
this year. Originally from Virginia,
she owned Susannah's Gourmet
Pantry in Avondale for 12 years. For
one day only, the inn's signature
fried chicken will make way for a
seafood options. The Florida House
is a family affair. Owned by the
Saltmarsh family, the inn will cele-
brate the marriage of Sands' son


Marshall to Emily Saltmarsh in
October.
The luncheon is one of several
events being offered during the sec-
ond annual High Tide Women's
Weekend. The luncheon will feature
the NPCA's executive vice-president
Theresa Pierno as the keynote
speaker. Pierno shared, "I am
thrilled to be part of this year's
event and look forward to
discussing our efforts to preserve
our country's national parks and the
threatened Great Waters ecosys-
tems. Our nation's great waters
shape our daily lives, drive local eco-
nomics and enhance our national
parks."

Camella is one of our
staff's special favorites! She's
a beautiful Labrador Retriever
mix, about 2 years old, with a
lovely golden coat. She's very
mellow and affectionate. She's
also a ton of fun! Camella
loves to chase and return ten-
nis balls, and loves the water
too. She also gets along great
with other dogs. A fenced
yard where she could run
would be ideal, or a dog park
membership and if you
adopt any of our great dogs,
you'll get a free month's mem-
bership at the NHS Dog Park!
She's an excellent walker and
very clean in her kennel; she
knows how to sit and loves to
be petted. Please come see
Camella and see why our staff

just loves her!
Latoya is a beautiful
Domestic Short Hair mix
whose very name says "star
power!" She's about 11
months old with a black and
orange torfoiseshell coat.
She's playful and has lots of
energy. She likes to be held
(sometimes!) and we think
she'd be great for a single
owner or a family with older
children who could play with
her.
Come lobk into Latoya's
pretty green eyes and you'll
see why she'll be a superstar
for some lucky owner and it
could be you! You can see

'RAIN


This is a story of, literally,
the blind leading the blind.
Meet Helen and Ray, two
pups in a litter that was taken
to Nassau County Animal
Services. Upon intake, it was
discovered several of the pups
had partial to no sight. RAIN
was called on to take the chal-
lenge of placing the pups with
no sight.
After a thorough examina-
tion, two weeks of medication
and consulting with the oph-
thalmologist in Jacksonville,
Dr. Jim O'Brien concluded
the pups possibly could see
faint images, but were consid-
ered to be blind due to a
genetics factor. Helen and
Ray have been in foster care
and making great progress in


adjusting to their special
needs. They are about 12
weeks old and looking for a
place to call home. If you are
interested in giving these two
little beauties a "wish come
true" please contact RAIN
Humane Society at (904) 879-
5861 or email us at rainhu-
manc@yahoo.com. Also visit
our website at rainhumanesp-
ca.org to catch up on the lat-
est happenings at RAIN. Our
resale shop is always in need
of donations to help fund the
care of pets like Ray and
Helen. You can drop off items
Wednesday through Saturday
from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the
store, which is located in the
Harris Teeter Shopping
Center.


STARS


Angel's story has been a
sad one. Tied to her trailer for
five years and never let off,
her condition was poor. She
didn't have a collar and was
tied with a chain around her
neck. No shelter, laying in
dirt, she was filthy and could
barely walk. She was emaciat-
ed, with clumps of hair miss-
ing. Given to a volunteer who
asked if she could take her,
Angel was brought to a vet
loaded with hookworms and a
severe tick infection. Good
news no heartworms.
Weeks later, Angel is spayed,
on a good diet and free of
intestinal worms, weighs 36
pounds and is doing well with
housetraining. She deserves a
wonderful, loving home after
all she has been through!
Save the Animals Rescue


Society does not run ;a shelter.
