GARRETT' PELICAN
Newus-Lealder
Public Defender Matt Shirk is used
to helping others. As ar~e the 250,000
veterans he estimated reside in North
Florida. And their missions coincide
when it comes to serving veterans
landlingi in the criminal justice system
in an. initiative called Veter-ans'
Tlreatme-nr CourL --
What: began as a stand-alone pro-
gram in Buffalo, N.Y., has since
expanded to roughly 80 programs and
sp~ea~d across the country like wildfire,
said Shirk. Now the public defender is
testing it out in Duval Co.unty, and
hopefully the r~est of the Four-th
Judicial Circuit, Clay and Nassau,
soon.
"What the Veterans' Treatment
Court is designed to do is to treat and
help the veteran that ends up in the
justice system," he said. "Their prob-
lem is very unique."
The public defender said the pro-
gram's roots in Jacktsonville were the
result of a March email for warded to
him, explaining the benefit a veteans'
treatment program can provide a court
circuit.

GARRETT PELICA\N
Newus Leaderr
Nassau County Commissioners and School Board mem-
bers exchanged concerns Jan. 24, but none more significant
than consideration of a proposed halt in the collection of
school impact fees.
School Board Chair Donna Martin said board mnem-
bers had not discussed the moratorium proposed by coun-
ty commissioners in December.
Between the rapid decline of funding from kocal taxes
and diminishing state contributions, impact fees remain the
school board's most reliable source of revenue, said
Superintendent John Ruis.
"You'll see that our capital outlay revenues anld our
capacity to generate them are dwindling," Ruis said, citing
a November study by Fishkind & Associates, Inc. of
Orlando.
The superintendent pointed out that the district has
seen a minor increase in school impact fees collected since
2009. After averaging nearly $3 million from 2005-8, the dis-
trict's impact fees were under $800,000 during the 2008t9
fiscal year but have since climbed north of $1 million.
County Manager Ted Selby said that commissioners
were considering implementing a mobility fee in place of1
impact fees. Thle mobility fee is based on vehicle tra~ivel or
tri/ps as opposed to a tax assessed on the number of studetal
seats, said County Attorney David Hallman.
Hallman said a mobility fee would gr~ant the county
commission more flexibility in its collection and specnd-
ing. But he noted it would requir-e the county to repeal its

ment before you collect the money," said Hallman.
The county attorney said thr-ee other counties Alachua,
Duval and Pasco -have considered mobility fees. He said
Alachua is on the edge of introducing mobility fees while
the latter two have implemented them, with Pasco active-
ly collecting fees and Duval having susp~ended-its collection
of fees.
Hallman said mobility fees can range as high as impact

TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department, of Education
on Monday released a numerical ranking ofi Ihe( als:c'd,,078
public and charter schools, grouped by elementary, mid-
dle, high and combination schools. This ranking, coupled
with the district rankings, makes it easier for parents and
taxpayers to view information about Flor-ida's education sys-
tem.
TWO N8Ssau County schools Hilliard Middle Senior
High and Fernandina Beach High ~- -~-~~~..-.--.~....... .
- ranked in the top 50, at 26th and .' V~j j
45th respectively. Yulee Higli and
Fernandina Middle ranked in the rin.... 3A
top 100. Among Nassau's ele
mentary schools, Hilliard scored
highest at 182nd in the state, with the others falling some-
where between 485 (Emma Imve) arid 8101 (Br~yceville).
The No. 1 schools in the state were Brevar~d County's
W. Melbourne Elementary School for Science; D~ade's
Archimedean Middle Conservatory; and Okaloosa's
Collegiate High School at Northwest State College.
Among neighboring districts, only Stanton College
Prepatory in Duval County made the top 10, ranking fifth
in the state.
"Floridians care about: education and it is critical that.
our students have access to world-class schools that will
give them a pathway to a successful career," said Gov.
Rick Scott in a press release. "Measuri~aa~~ang' each school's per-
formance helps gauge our progress toward that goal."
Lowest rariked elementary school was Hope Imarnmng
Community of Riviera Beach, Inc., DBA Noah's Ar-k
International Charter School, at 1,79)5. Inwest middle
school was Broward Community Charter, at 5831. And
placing last among high schools was Duval County's
Andrew Jackson, at 404.
The numerical rankings are based on each school's
total school grade points, which are calculated based on the
following criteria:
Elementary, middle and high schools:
*Points are derived from the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) scores.
The total score includes the sum of the percent of stu-
dents:

achievement levels on reading, mathematics, science and

friendly community and always has
been," Shirk said. "It just seems like it's
a natural fit for our court system."
Although the program's merits
were founded, Shirk said he encoun-
tered some resistance with the State
Attorney's Office and other parties,
But soon after, he said, everything fell
into place and his office started the
makings of a pilot program.
SWhile the program is in its devel-
opmental stages, Shick said it's cur-
Srently in use. His office is in the
process of identifying veterans from
the existing drug court program and
adding services suited specifically to
them.-
"It's easy to establish because the
veterans' court piggybacks off the
existing dr ug court and mental health
court programs that are: already in
place," he said. "It just adds the com-
ponent that a veteran needs, which is
the mentor component."
Shirk said the pr-ogram works in
conjunction with the U.S. Department
of Veterans Affairs, which allocateS
funding for veterans' programs, to pro-
vide the- program's participants with
the services they require.

Hallman said because of the
county's interlocal agreement
with the school board, a county
r-epeal of impact fees would not
require the school board to fol-

"where there's no company,
politically."
"The way the courts have it
written, school districts don't
have the independent authority
to impose the impact fees ...
those can only be enacted by
county governments," said
school board member Amanda
Young. ... Technically, the

a mor-atorium on (school board)

in today's difficult esconom-
ic times, businesses~ ofte-n turn :
to debt co~llectio~n agencje
when their cr-dit accounts are
overdue or they receiver bad
cherckj for merchandise. In the _
old days, retailer ttablishme~nts
would simply w'rite off bad
debts as un collecrable- and a
business exp-nsel. Today, mrany
businesses selli the-;e debts to
collection agencies for just pen-
nies on the dollar. Thesec de-bt
collectors are eager to buy the
debt for a fraction of what is
owed.
These days large retail cre~d-
itors are unable to devote the
enormous amount of time and -
molney to pursue theJ tho~usands
of people who fall intoi debt
every year and fmnd themselves
unable to pay their bills. Mlost
of these businesses have a local
following and a r-eputation to
safeguard in the commnunity.
When thley sell their bad debts
to others, they can concentrate
on selling their products. The
businesses also avoid any bad
publicity or ill feelings from
their customers. But ulnfortu-
nately, if you get involved with
a debt collector you will soon
find out that they do not follow
the "rules" for collecting debts.
And they fail to do due dill-

Ai few musings.. opinions.
questions. obser\rvaions1 and
random thoughts on island
life, Fernandina Beach and
more:
I've been told that under I
the pavement of rthe streets in
downtown Fe-rnandina~ Be~c~h
ar-e c~obbletlones that were I~
used as ballast in foreign ships
that sailed into the towin har -
bor a hundred years~ ago and
more. W~hen theyr arrived to
pick up goods sailor-s tossed
their cobblestone ballast over
the side and the locals
snatched them up to pave the
roads. Piles of them can still
* be seen along the riverbank
between Old Town and
Fernandina. Wouldn't it be
neat.to build your driveway
with century-old European
cobblestones? Are we allowed
to salvage them?

Marker 13, a fun pub with
good bar food located in the
Abaco building at the Amelia
Island Yacht Basin, has been
closed for several months
now. What happened? It was a
great place to unwind with a
cold brew or glass of wine,
watch sailboats slip into the
sunset and listen to some
soothing live m~usic. A sign on
the steps recently read "Baja
Island Grill coming soon." Not
soon enough.
We learned two things
while attending a party last
month where the host and
hostess aryd a major-ity of the
guests wer-e Fernandina
Beach pirates: One, it's fun to
par-ty with pirates; and two,
our local pirates do a lot of
work for charitable or~ganiza-
tions that goes unrecognized
since pirates don't blow their
own horn. In addition to r~ais-
ing fnnds for local charities
and a little hell, they also raise
the spirits of every kid who
has qver seen them swagger
ar-ound town o- fire their pis-
tols andi cannons fr~om theiri '
pirate ship cloat in par-ades. An
added bonus is these volun-
teer-s paint a positive and fun
personality for- the island fr-om

him in the sea like a sack of
r-ubbish and r-ecently r~escued

A single-page- of talking
points on For~ward FerInandina
sen~t to HFBA byi Mayor
Arlene Filkoff makes a very-
ar-ticulate case for- the c'ontro-
versial pr-ogr-am. The outline
states that the library alone
attracts some 34,000 people
each year. That's almost 100 a
day who muay also be in the
mar-ket for- beer, beads, etc. So
if the library draws that large
a crowd, how many does the
post office catty-cornler fr~om it
pull in? And now that the
building on Centre Street the
lib-alry had been eyreballingi
has been sold, what's the fall-
backc plan? If your electric bill
is between $100 and $200 a
month it'll cost youl about $6i to
$12 a~ yeal, or 55 centlls to $1 ar
montlh, if that, according to
the mayor's statls.

So P'aula D~een has Typ~e 2 dliabet-es,
You know that, don't you? It has been

vor~s her quiche with a
poulndlof bacon, the stories
say has T'ype 2 diabetes.
I know what they're
doing. They're implying

the way Pau~lla D~een cooks,
you're going~to come dlown

"f've always said,
'Practice modleration', y'all," Paula Deen
says in her finest Savannah voice.
Paula Deen who's being treated like a
serial killed knows you can't eat high-calo-

know that andi live accordingly.
I say many Souther-ner~s because thee
ar~e folks dlown her~e who think that milk
gravy is a vegetable and eating healthy
means nibbling the lettuce that comes with
their triple-decker-, doubischeese, super-
sized hamburgers. It's their rear- ends that
show up on TV every time ther-e's a story on
obesity. '
But, health issues aside, you'll have to
adlmit that the Sout h tur-ns out better food.
Take fr-ied foodls, for- example. I don't know if
it was Native Amer~icans or Afr-ican
Americans or- Caucasian Amer-icans, but
somebody in the South discover-ed that cer--
lan oodos ~ue not oe".unl se theyr fregg

to be r-olled in cornmeal and fr-ied until it's
almost burnt. He wouldn't eat it any other

And just because we eat a little fried okra

doesn't mean we'r~e going to come down

temperI our enthusiasm forl frying by con-

Fact is, we are bombarded with stuff
about foo~d: the recipes, the cookoffs, the
Ir~on Che~fs. Amer-icans. not just
Southerner-saret obsessed with food. And
we can't help it if most of the obsession and
good things comle from the South. Success
br~eeds success, andi Souther-ners do a lot of
br-eeding.

Miss Paula is now diabetic. Two of myi first
cousins died fr-om complications of diabetes.
My sister, Elaine, has been a diabetic for 50
years, since she was 12.
But nm sister is a w~onderful-Southern
cook who knows the importance of a good
diet. And when she makes a batch of her

\l ED\ssDA~. FE3RL -\RT i. 2012 OPINION New-s-Leader


I was out in the garden the other day tend-
ing rthe collards w~hen a friend dropped by
-Wihat do you think of the city manager situa-
tion," he asked? -lt's tough,- I replied, -tough
on! everyone -- the manager, his family, the com-
mission, employees." "Yeah,- my friend mut-
tered, looking wistfully at a fading blue sky. `I
wonder w~hy Fer nandina Beach can't keep a city
manager?" Uh oh, I thought, here we go again.
I believe that manager changes are
inevitable, given our manager-commission form
of government and its bedrock principle of the
manager serving at the pleasure of the com
mission. The astonishing thing, at least to me,
is that my belief usually seems to reflect that of
the minority. The majority, seemingly unaware
of the political axiom 'elections have conse-
quences," are shocked, bewildered and taken
aback when a new commission, elected with a
mandate for change, actually takes actions to
implement those changes. No, the recent ter-
mination of the manager wasn't a stunner for
me, to the contrary.
So now comes the familiar rhetoric parroted
by the friend in my collard patch: "Why can't
Fernandmna Beach keep a city manager?" "It s
really going to be hard to find a decent city
manager, giVen our history." "Is there some-
thing in the water that turns well-meaning com-
mission candidates into manager-firing mon-
sters?" "I know commissioners are not related,
blit do you think there's some collective gene
mutation that pre-disposes commissioners to
poor decision-making when it comes to the
manager?" OK, the last two are exaggerations,
but given comments made to me over the
.years, not too much of an exaggeration.
'tI've worked with nine cityr managersb~ver
my 24 years of commission life and five city
Attorneys. I've been through the city manager
hiring process eight times, and four- times for

*The commission should take charge of
the hir-ing pr-ocess, no committeees no search
firms. The search firm route is expensive and
ther-e is no evidence that it produces super-ior
candidates. Committee members invar-iably
become attached to particular applicants and,
when the commission selects someone not on
their list of favorites, become offended and ask,
"Well, why did you appoint us if you're not
going to take our recommendations seriously."
Forget the search firm and forget the commit-

five, inter-view and hir-e.

Pr-obably not, but for- me that's ok. O)ur fo~rml of

Fer-nandina Beach is the best place to live in

back 40 or 50 years to when they
wer-e the hear-t of the chur-ch choir
at the Fir-st Baptist Church at Fifth

She played at our wedding 53 years
ago. She commented she was still
playing two or three times a week at
weddings and funerals. She is a ver-y
accomplished musician.
The Haddock Gr-oup that used to
sing at church was composed of
Bartow fatherr, Claude (son),
Edgar (son), Ike Shiver (son-in-law)

Claude was reminiscing about
when they were growing up on
South Sixth Street in the 1930s and
1940s before the days of air condi-

All of the families would be out


on the front por-ches singing and
playing music while waiting for the

comfortable sleeping. He men-

inclined. Ther-e was certainly music
in the air- along Sixth Str-eet, partic-
ularly in warm weather,.
Yes, Thomas, you can go home
again, if only for an hour or- two. If
not in Asheville, certainly in

VIEWPOINT/JrM S-HPHENSON/FERNANDINA BEACH


SC OO S W

Is there anybody in Nassau County who
thinks we are doing well with our investment in
education? Ranking Nassau schools as 14th in
the state is like being runner-up in an Ugly Dog
contest.
Front-page news on Jan. 25 read, "Nassau
schools 14th best in state." This was quite an
article on how well Florida manages its school
rankings. The Florida Education Commissioner
stated, "Florida is considered a national leader
when it comes to measuring the success of our
schools." Our Gov. Rick Scott said, "Ranking
school districts by performance allows taxpay-
ers to see their investment in education at
work."
W~el, I don't see our investment in education
at work in Nassau County. Our success in edu-
cating our children here is pathetic. Let's just
look at a few facts, and use SAT/ACT` scores to
measure our progress. First, it is important to
understand that the ACT has a benchmark
called the ~College Readiness Benchmark
Scores." These scores represent the minimum
score needed to have a 75 percent chance of
obtaining a C or higher in credit-bearing college
courses. So basically, these scores indicate how
well our students from Nassau would do in col-
lege. The College Readiness Benchmark
Scores are as follows: English-18, M~ath-22,
Reading-2 1 and Science-24.
So now you'd better sit down. The 20 11
scores for F~ernandina students are as follows:
English-20.3, M~ath-21.6; Reading-21.7; and
Science-20.2. Fernandina barely made the mini-
mum in Reading, and failed to meet minimums
established for both math and science, the two
most important subjects needed by the United
States in fostering advancements in technology.
Yulee and WVest Nassau passed the English por-
tion by less than half a point, and failed all the

Help for the homeless
Mary P'itcher, Business/Community- Development officer for CHC National Bank,

of Nassau Countyv. The Coalition For The Homeless is planning a pilot "D~ay Drop-In
Center" to provide day-time services to adults and families experiencingi homeless-
ness or at risk of homelessness.
"The 'Day D~rop-In1 Center' will be a w-elcome place for those at risk to access
appropriate facilities, services and resources," said Andrews. Services will include,
as funding and staffing allows: access to snacks and water, to toilet, shower and laun-
dry facilities, computer and telephone access to research and apply- for identifica-
tion, employment, benefits, medical checkups, etc. The facility wlll be the first local-
ly and will supplement the other programs of the Co~alition For The Homeless such
as the Interfaith D~inner Network, the Soup Train for the elderlyv, the "Cold Night
Shelter" and more.
