Gerrity named,




city manager


ANGELA DAUGHTRY .
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
voted at a special meeting Saturday
to offer a contract to former mayor
and commissioner Joe Gerrity to take
the job as permanent city manager.
The unanimous vote came after com-
missioners split on their choice for
city manager on handwritten ballots.
Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch and
Commissioners Charles Corbett and
Sarah Pelican chose Gerrity by hand-
written ballot..
Mayor Arlene Filkoff chose Interim
City Manager Dave Lott by handwrit-
ten ballot.
Commissioner Tim Poynter chose
PaulWhite, former assistant city man-
ager of Riviera Beach and one of only
two out-of-towners included in the
group of five finalists.,
The decision came after a turbu-
lent and sometimes contentious vet-
ting process that began after foriner
city manager Michael Czymbor
resigned under protest in January.
Lott has-b'een serving as interim


city manager since February. He was
included as a finalist for the manager
.job after a reversal of an initial com-
mission decision that prevented the
interim manager from applying for the
permanent job. Commissioners also
reversed an earlier decision requiring
a super-majority, or 4-1 vote, to appoint
a city manager.
Commissioners spent'Saturday
morning interviewing the finalists indi-
vidually, after which each candidate
was interviewed-at an open meeting at
City Hall. Public comment was allowed
after the public interviews.
"Better government is one where
people feel more comfortable," Gerrity
said during his public interview. "We.
have a pretty unique culture here.
There are so many amenities with
their special interest groups." .
'Gerrity also said the city should
establish a better relationship with
Nassau County leaders, and that he
would be "very much a hands-on man-,
ager."
He also said he had "absolutely no

- not boat names


ALEXANDRIA, Va. -
Making the decision to buy a
boat comes easy for some
people. Picking out a name
for the boat, however, can
prove to be much harder,
according to Boat Owners
Association of The United
States (BoatUS).
"A boat name reflects the
life and loves of the owner,"
says Occoless Trotter of the
BoatUS Boat Graphics.
department in Alexandria,
Va., which helps boaters
design their own boat names
"But, it's hard to sum it all up
with just a few words." The
half-million-member boat
owners group has been tally-
ing the Top Ten .Boat Names
List for over two decades.
The 22nd Annual List Top
Ten Boat Names are:
1. Seas the Day


?. Nauti Buoy
3. Aquaholic
4. Dream Weaver
5. Pegasus
6. Serenity Now
7. Second Wind
8. Liquid Asset
9. Miss Behavin'
10. Blew ByYou
"When you get a boat,
there are certain things you
* have to do, such as register-
ing it and buying insurance
or towing coverage," added
. Trotter "However, picking a
boat name opens up a cre-
ative side." This year's list
included three newcomers:"
Nauti Buoy, Serenity Now,
and Blew ByYou, a popular
racing sailboat moniker and
clever word play on an old
Roy Orbison song made
famous by Linda Ronstadt
Two other boat names made


the list for the second time:
Dream Weaver and Pegasus.
All others are multi-year
repeats.
Some names that did not
make the top 10 list but
appeared more than once
include Pandora, a reference
to the planetoid at the center
of the film Avatar, as well as
boat names that invoke
favorite songs with
Margaritaville and Dream
Weaver resonating strongly
among boat owners of all
types.
To see the BoatUS
Annual List of Top Ten Boat
Names for the last 22 years
as well as a list of over 8,000
boat names, or to try design-
ing your own boat name

Lott shid becoming the per-

him an opportunity to stay
involved with the city, as he has
been for many years. He also
noted the coming budget year
would be a difficult one for the
city, and that commissioners

"I have no personal agenda,"
Lott said. "I have no vested
financial interest in any busi-

the opportunity to serve the city,

White, who has more than
20 years' experience in city man-

service (by city employees) is
not perceived by the public.... I
think cities can't do everything,
but we can convene all the
stakeholders. ... it's all about

Gene Knaga, a local ceti'-

him to be "the most straight-
forward and approachable com-
missioner,"
Peg Krentz said Gerrity 'is
"dedicated" and "knows where
he is coming from and is set to

But other residents urged
commissioners to choose a can-
didate from outside the area
rather than a local person:
Robin Lentz told commis-
sioners Lott had been "very
prompt in resolving issues, ...
but I urge you to make a deci-
sion without emotions."
'The local candidates are too
close," Lentz said. "It would be
difficult for Joe Gerrity to make
unbiased decisions. ... You
should hire Mr. White or Mr.
Stampfler because they are out-
side people."
"This is a time of'change,"
resident Judith Lane said. "Paul
White stood out among all the
candidates as a leader, amaz-
ingly so."

Lott said that although the plan
is in the 'very preliminary
stages, having a search and res-
cue helicopter squadron at the
city airport "makes perfect
sense" because the city is only
a mile from the ocean."
"We certainly should be mar-.
shalling our forces together,"
Lott said. "We do have the space
at the airport."
Members of both groups
agreed a committee should be
formed to study the matter, and
that city commissioners and the
port authority would schedule
quarterly meetings to discuss
the matter further.

those actions did not make

"We need someone to bring

d Local attorney John Cascone
said it was "none of his busi-

Despite rain,


limit watering


PALATKA Rainfall levels
are well below normal and
some water bodies are at or
near record lows in northeast
and central Florida, prompt-
ing the St. Johns River Water
Management District
Governing Board to urge busi-
nesses and the public to active-
ly conserve water.
Heavy rains this week have
helped but not reversed the
need to curb watering of
lawns.
The district is continually
monitoring water levels. for
any signs of supply problems
and ecosystem impacts.
Without increased rainfall and
enhanced water conservation,
those impacts could begin to
be widely experienced, which
could prompt the district to
take additional water conser-
vation steps.
Rainfall in the 18-county
district was 12 inches below
normal for the last 12 months
through April. The lack of rain-
,ill i. been especially signif-
icant in the northern portion


of the district where Duval
County was 15 to 25 inches
below normal in rainfall for
the past 12 months. The
Gainesville area was approxi-
mately 25 inches, below nor-
mal in rainfall in the past 12
,months.
The lack of rainfall has
resulted in very low ground-
water levels throughout the
district and record lows
have been recorded in some
areas during April. Surface
water levels continue to
decline and some water bod-
ies, such as Lake Weir in
Marion County, have reached
record lows.
"Our communities are
increasingly sensitive to ,the
need to conserve water," said
District Executive Director
Hans Tanzler. "Now is the
time for all of us to do every-
thing we can to conserve."
Current watering'restric-
tions limit outdoor irrigation to
no more than two designated
days per week and ,not
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

WEDNESDAY. MAY 16.2012/NEwS-LEADER


Intimidation's value


Recently I read an article
about Anthony Weiner, the
disgraced ex-congressman
whom it appears had major
problems with his staff. It
seems that whenever he
became frustrated, the ex-con-
gressman would scream at
the staffer he blamed for his
problem. We all know a boss
like Weiner and it is never fun.
In business the better people
usually leave and the ones
who can't find other jobs hang
around, afraid to fight back.
However, it would be incor-
rect to conclude that all
screamers are unsuccessful.
Three I can think of, Bobby
Knight, Bill Parcells and Tom
Coughlin, have had great suc-
cess as coaches in their
respective professions. All are
famous for their tempers, but
they still won championships.
However, it is easier to get
away with screaming when
you are the person with all the
power to hire or fire. When
this is not the case, and there
is a more level playing field,
screaming may have other
implications and results.
Early in my career, a top
Teamster official, Herbie
Heilmann, gave me some
advice. "When I am yelling,"
Herbie said, "it's because I

have no
leverage and
I am trying
to intimidate
you into giv-
ing in, or I
am putting
on a show
for my mem-
bers.
However,
when I am
quietly
explaining
my position,
I want to
make sure


my members don't overact
and you had better be listen-
ing."
This advice became very
helpful a few years later. The
employees at a Standard
Brands facility were repre-
sented by the Brewery
Workers. When the Team-
sters took over the Brewery
Workers, the employees
advised us that they did not
want to be represented by the
Teamsters. Our attorneys
decided we should honor our
employees' request until the
National Labor Relations
Board ruled. Once we advised
the Teamsters of our decision,
Frank Fitzsimmons, the presi-
dent of the International, sent
our CEO, Henry Weigl, a
sharply worded message
which left little doubt about
their position. By Hawkins,
the head of Corporate Labor,
and I were sent to meet
Fitzsimmons to work this out.
When we got to their


offices, the Teamsters were in
the midst of high-level meet-
ings with their regional VPs,
Phil Sipser, their legal counsel
and Johnny Hoh; a northeast
Teamster executive. Frank
Fitzsimmons was not present.
Hawkins and I did a lot of
work with both Sipser and
Hoh. Sipser asked if we were
ready to recognize them at the
plant. When By Hawkins reit-
erated our position, a number
of the group began to verbally
abuse us. After about 15 min-
utes, Hawkins suggested we
take a short break. Since they
had all the cards, we were
very surprised they were
wasting time yelling at us. In
addition, I couldn't imagine
Hoh or Sipser, with'all we had
going on, letting anything hap-
pen without one last private
warning.
So we came back in and
made the point that the
Teamsters were at 25 of our
operations and it made no
sense for them to overreact
before the NLRB ruled. We
then said our goodbyes and
left the meeting. A few days
later Phil Sipser called. He
started out kidding me about
how we had stood up to their
threats. I asked, "What's
next?"
"You win," he answered.
. "We have too much going on
with Standard Brands and
besides no one wanted to
wake up Fitz to get strike
authorization." I smiled to
myself and" silently thanked
Herbie for the advice.

City manager a voice



for customer service


When Joe Gerrity was a
commissioner here, he
would lament about an "us.
against the people" mentality
within Fernandina Beach
City Hall.
He could not comprehend
how workers on the public
payroll assigned to run the
city for the good of the citi-
zens could conduct them-
selves in such a manner.
Well, times have changed. A
new sheriff has come to
town.
Gerrity's return to
Fernandina Beach govern-
ment as the city manager will
be cheered as a relief from
the punitive and restrictive
mode of the past. Gerrity
talked about "bringing better
government to Fernandina.
Beach" in-his interview with
city commissioners over the
weekend.
The message must have
resonated, as Gerrity was
chosen Saturday as the new
city manager by a 3-2 vote
(with Sarah Pelican, Charlie
Corbett and Jeffrey Bunch in
his favor). Interim city man-
ager Dave Lott-and three
other candidates were
among the other finalists for
the position.
Gerrity said he wants to
"instill a culture of customer ,
service" among city employ-
ees, and that within the com-
munity "there needs to be a
more positive feeling of the
government here." This is
indeed a breath of fresh air
for a town wheezing from
oppressive government regu-
lations, fees and taxes.
Time after time, local
business owners have quietly
whined about onerous regu-
lations and fees and down-
right hassles from city offi-
cials. This has to change.
The city has essentially hin-
dered future growth by pun-
ishing anyone who invests
here in a business or in
home.
City officials should
encourage investment into
our community, not repel it.
Outside City Hall where the

candidates

position
were'being
interviewed
Saturday,
one long-
time resi-
dent talked
about how
she wanted
to replace
the win-
dows in her
house for
energy effi-


ciency, appearance, etc.
After being bombarded
with requirements for per-
mits and whipsawed with
restrictions, she decided not
to do anything. Others ille-
gally make improvementsto
their properties without noti-
fying the city, feeling it is the
only hassle-free option.
Overly restrictive policies
encourage a culture of non- .
compliance among citizens
and businesses.
At times, city officials
have boasted about how they
blocked a development or
project by making obtuse
and excessive demands -
particularly through the
technical review committee.
I've seen this first-hand. So
have so many others., -'
This is riot the way a city
government should be run.
Gerrity is the perfect cure'
and antidote for such boorish
behavior. He learned about
customer service while.
working his way up through
the ranks of a stellar corpora-
tion like McDonald's. He
later owned and operated
several of their franchises.
He rehearsed his private-
sector skills in the public sec-
tor as the Suwannee County
manager for the last two

setting a budget and sticking
to it, which has been sorely

Responsiveness. This is what

.able city in the U.S." (a title
cited by one city manager
candidate). Encourage

"The trick is to keep them
(the amenities) all great,"
Gerrity says.
Gerrity is the perfect guy
for the job. Now we need a
McDonald's model for City
Hall, a prototype. A little of
the "would you like ketchup
with your fries" mentality will
go a long way toward improv-
ing the reputation of City
Hall. The townsfolk are sali-
vating for it.

Cardiology expands again


Following the addition last
fall of state-of-the-art echocar-
diography equipment to diag-
nose complex heart conditions,
Baptist Medical Center Nassau
has taken another giant step
forward in cardiac care, says
Stephen Lee, hospital presi-
dent.
"We've added more space,
equipment, clinical staff and,
together with local cardiolo-
gists in Baptist Heart
Specialists (formerly Southern
Heart Group), we now offer a
level of cardiac care and expert-
ise that are highly unusual in a
community our size," he says.
Baptist Heart Specialists
was formed on May 1 with the
joining of physicians in
Southern Heart Group, which
has an office in Fernandina
Beach, and the Jacksonville
Heart Center. Under the
umbrella of Baptist Health, it
offers a full spectrum of cardi-
ology services and includes 27
specialists in eight first coast
communities and at Baptist
Heart Hospital, Northeast
Florida's only hospital dedicat-
ed exclusively to cardiovascular-
care.
"Starting with the emer-
gency department's designa-
tion several years ago as a
Certified Chest Pain Center,
Baptist Nassau has made a
huge commitment to provide
our community with direct
access to world-class, compre-
hensive cardiology care," says
George LeBert, director of the

hospital's expanded cardio-pul-
monary department. Recent
additions include the latest 4-D
ultrasound equipment that pro-
vides remarkably detailed stud-
ies of the heart in motion, addi-
tional nuclear medicine'
equipment, another treadmill
for stress testing and two car-
diopulmonary imaging nurses
to assist patients having car--
diac studies.
In addition, Baptist Health
recently upgraded its system-


wide electronic medical record
system so when patients
require additional treatment,
clinical information can be
more easily shared by experts
here and at the Baptist Heart
Hospital in Jacksonville.
Located on ,the Baptist
Medical. Center.. campus,
Baptist Heart Hospital includes
88 private patient rooms; two
intensive care units '(48 beds);
the region's only outpatient
Congestive Heart Failure clin-


ic; three operating rooms and
cardiac catheterization labora-
tories; two electro physiology
laboratories; a state-of-the-art
cardiac rehabilitation program
and Life Flight emergency air
ambulance service.
"It is our hope that these
new tools and partnerships will
combine our strengths to fight
heart disease in our communi-
ty and improve the quality of
life and care for our heart
patients," Lee says.


Free Heart to Heartprogram
Baptist Nassau invites the public to learn about the
risks of heart disease and the latest techniques for
diagnosis and treatment at a free discussion

2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report for


NASSAU-AMELIA UTILITIES (NAU)
We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.
NASSAU-AMELIA UTILITIES routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on tite results of
our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011. and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please contact us. Scott Herring (Pubic Works Director):
(904) 491-7330, customer service (904) 491-7373, and plant operating staff (904) 261-0822.

NAU has three ground water wells that draw from the Floridian Aquifer. Polyphosphate is added for corrosion control. Then aerated for the removal of hydrogen sulfide and chlorinated for disinfection purposes.
Source Water Assessment (SWA)
In January 2011 the Department of Environmental Protection updated the Source Wdter Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamina-
tion in the vicinity of our wells. The 8 potential sources of contamination identified for this system has a range of low to moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source
Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us'/swapp. Click on search by PWS name or number. Type in our PWS ID # 2450022 for the SWA.

Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, trggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water:
MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology:

Maxrimum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water:
There is convincing evidence that addition ofa disinfectant is necessary for control of micmibial contaminants.

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (aig/1): one part by weight of analyze to I billion parts by weight of the water sample.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1): one part by weight of analyte to I million parts by weight of the water sample.

Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in water:

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service
lines and home plumbing. NASSAU-AMELIA UTILITIES is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has
been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your
water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at
http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves
naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting fi'om the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come fiwm sewage
treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurning or
result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come fivm a variety of sources such as agriculture,
urban storm water runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals,
twhiclh are b.v-products of industrial processes and petroleumn production, and can also, comefivm
gas stations, urban stornn water runoff, and septic systenls.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and
gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the
amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled watel; which mutst
provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water,; including bottled water,; may reasonably he expected to contain at least small
amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the
water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health tk. '' can be
obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency :s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-8(10-
426-4791.

Total Coliform: The Total Coliform Rule requires water systems to meet a stricter limit for coliform
bacteria. Colifbrm bacteria are usually hannless, but their presence in water can be an indication
of disease-causing bacteria. When colifomn bacteria are. found, special fbllow-up tests are done to
detennine if hartflid bacteria are present in the water supply. Ifthis limit is exceeded, the water
supplier must notivj the public by newspaper; television or radio. To comply' with the stricter regula-
tion, twe have increased the average amount of chlorine in the distribution system.

Lead: Lead in drinking water is rarely the sole cause of lead poisoning, but it can add to a person's
total lead exposure. All potential sources of lead in the household should be .i. ,..,.. and removed,
replaced or reduced.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general popula-
tion. hmiuno-comnpromised peirons such as persolis with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, per-
sons whlo have undergone organ transplants, people with HI41V/AIDS or other immunlie system disor-
der:s, some elderly, and infants cai be particularly at risk from i,t.'. ,,..,, These people should seek
advice about drinking water fiom their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate
means to lessen the risk of/infection byi Civptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants
are available fiom the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

school systems and communi-
ties enriching both in the
process," he said.
"In that effort, I salute the
dedicated men and women of
the Nassau County School
System and all those that pro-
vide the basic services that
keep our schools operating."
Williams said he would
promote programs "that
advance citizenship, American
history and science. The
responsibility for educating our
children lies not only with the
school board but with the com-

* VIEWPOINT/PAT KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACH



Bad deal has just become worse


T he purpose of this viewpoint is to
explain the complaint in the ongoing
class action suit against the city for
recovery of impact fees. The com-
plaint details the bad business decisions that
gave rise to the imprudent, costly and destruc-
tive decision in 2002 to purchase the water and
wastewater utility. My interests in this action
are disclosed at the end of this viewpoint. I will
also provide a copy of the complaint, including
the purchase agreement between FPU and the
city if readers contact me by email.
In 2002 water utility services in the city
were provided by FPU. As a private provider of
a monopoly utility service, FPU's rates and
terms' of service were regulated by the Florida
Public Service Commission. FPU had signifi-
cantly over developed city facilities so that
there was excess capacity. Being unable to
secure a return on their excess investment
through the regulatory process, FPU sought to
sell its utility to the city.
The city of Fernandina Beach was receptive
to negotiations and engaged a professional
engineering firm to appraise the utility. The
value came in at $19.4 million. By contract
dated Dec. 2, 2002, the city agreed to a "total
cash purchase price" of $18.95 million.
Additionally, the contract provided fl.i tihe ,IlNy
of pay FPU "futures" payments ofS, 5i mil I ion
over a period of seven years. In effect; the city '
agreed to pay $26.45 million for a pi ip- i ly
worth $19.4 million. Nowhere was the term
"futures" defined and announcements of the
sale stated the price at $18.95 niilliorn. li kr,:b
concealing that. the city had vastly overpaid for
the utility. And there was no mnti,,n that th,:
city intended to collect impact I-: s to n,-elt
their "futures" payment obligationon
The city closed the deal t it h F PL on Mairch
27, 2003, and in that same nInth the city adolpt-
ed an ordinance imposing a watkr impacIf (e a
a precondition to obtaining building permit..
The adoption of the ordinance clearly was
intended to generate the "futures" payments
necessary to service the $7.5 million debt
incurred to buy the utility.
By state and federal law, impact fees are not
taxes and may not be administered as such.
They are fees for services and their imposition
must meet the well-established dual rational
nexus test. That test provides that new develop-
ment may be assessed impact fees for capital


The city paid FPU$26.45 million
for a system worth $194 million.


costs their new development causes (the first
nexus). The rule further provides that impact
fees collected can only be used to cover those
costs incurred to satisfy the new requirement
(the second nexus). In the case of the city/FPU
deal, the funds were committed to paying off
the debt incurred to overpay for the utility not
for any costs generated by new development.
The complaint argues, such use is not in com-
pliance with the rational nexus rule and there-
fore illegal the city ordinances being subordi-
nate to both state and federal law.
From 2003-09 more than $1.6 million in
impact fees were paid to FPU to service the
$7.5m debt. When the balance of the $7.5 mil-
lion came due in January 2010, the city quietly
issued $5.125 million in bonds to help satisfy
the unpaid balance and the deed was done. The
city had paid $26.45 million for a system worth
$19.4 million and three of the current commis-
sioners in office in 2010 effectively ratified the
original bad deal.
That's the substance of the class action suit
requesting that the court find the fees to be
unlawful and refund the fees exacted from citi-
zens. The'complaint outlines a bad deal not
.from 20-20 hindsight but clearly from the very
beginning. City officials were apparently blind-'
ed by the desire to build a bigger empire and
get something for nothing. Instead they impru-
dently spent citizens' funds, put citizens into
unnecessary debt and imposed an impact fee

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Lott
I read your endorsement of Joe
Gerrity (May 11). What exactly do
you mean when you say that David
Lott "would be handicapped now by
the gamesmanship required to hire
him for the permanent job?" You say
that Loftt has'handled the interim job
well. You then proceed to write eight
paragraphs about Gerrity's various
experiences and personal qualities
which you believe to better qualify
him than Lott. It would be helpful if
you had also provided additional
information about Lott's experiences
and personal qualities. Since you
agree that Lott has handled the job
well I suspect he could probably also
handle the "gamesmanship."
Whatever that is.

Florida Power and Light
About two months ago we wrote
a comment that appeared in the
News-Leader regarding Florida
Power and Light. The subject of the
article had to do with the number of
service failures (outages) that we
had been experiencing. We had pret-
ty much reached the end of accept-
ing the number of outages as being
acceptable or reasonable and we
wanted to do something to bring the
problem into focus for FPLand oth-
ers in the area..
We contacted FPL regarding the
excessive number of power losses,
and kept the Public Service
Commission in the loop as we con-
tinued our complaints over a period
of months. Eventually, we had made
so many complaints and contacted so
many of the right people that FPL
finally got the. message and started
remedial action.
Working with FPL we were sur-
prised at the number of possible
problems that we were subject to,
and to the extensive distribution and
makeup of the electrical equipment
in our area. We were also surprised
at the lack, of public input that FPL
receives as a result of power losses.
Briefly, we are in an area that lies
distant from the main electrical dis-
tribution, as are most readers. This
presents a problem in that supplying
service to our (relatively) sparsely
populated area requires either a sub-
station or the equivalent re-closure
station. The latter is a junction that
acts in place of a sub-station, but only
has the capabilities to make or break
service down stream (where we are).
With so many junctions there is a lot
to go wrong.
FPL has been working with us
on Piney Island and elsewhere to
pinpoint the hot spots (trouble
points) and to either fix or replace
whatever is causing the interrup-
tions. They replaced one nearby re-
closure station and they have placed
monitors in key locations that will
allow them to locate other sources of
outages. Working with them, they
point out that they cannot fix some-
thing if no one notifies them of a
problem. A momentary loss of power
is considered sufficient reason to
contact FPL and stay on the line
until your loss has been recorded in
the FPL computer (database).


The management of FPL
requests that FPL be notified for
every power outage experienced in
the geographical area served by the
News-Leader. FPL is trying to provide
good service. Do your part by calling
in every power loss, no matter how
brief. You contact FPL power out-
age at (800) 468-8243. You can also
contact me at 557-4772 (leave a mes-
sage) and I will keep a list for them.

Careful what youask for
Tax the rich. Sounds OK since
you are not one of the rich, right?
But an honest examination will
reveal that although taxes are col-
lected from the rich, the taxes are
paid by consumers. The taxes are
collected from the rich by the gov-
ernment but those taxes are passed
along in the price of the refrigerator,
the price of your ipad, the cost of
food or the price of your Jaguars
ticket. When you purchase a con-
sumer item, you are paying the taxes
that were assessed on the rich.
And consider that at any given
time there is a fixed amount of
money available for all uses. If the
government takes more money in
the form of taxes, there is less money
for businesses to pay consumers
(that's you and me).
Where do we get "new" money?
One way is that the Federal Reserve
prints more bills. This really does
not create new money but only
dilutes the money that already exists,
making the existing money less valu-
able. The value of the dollar has
decreased by more than 92 percent
since the Federal Reserve was cre-
ated. This leads to inflation, which
raises the cost of the things we con-
sumers buy. The only way new
money is created is by taking natu-
ral resources, adding labor and gen-
erating products which have value.
In turn, these products can be trad-
ed for the products of others we wish
to have, including services such as
food service, entertainment or these
products can be given to charity.


Our ability to generate new prod-
ucts is hampered by the cost of
government. Higher national debt
means more interest charges paid
by the government. Increased
government spending reduced the
funds available and therefore our
ability to create products and new
money.
When you hear it said we should
tax the rich, remember just who it is
that really pays that tax collected
from the rich. Careful what you ask
for.

The defidt
Partisan political statements are
heard everywhere. But few, if any,
serious proposals are advanced to
'deal with single biggest problem
faced by this nation: the federal
deficit and debt. Here is an attempt
at a non-partisan outline of what
should be done:
1. Require every federal agency
to list the major amounts (say, $5
million or more) of 2012 expense
they incur, along with the
Congressional mandate that each
expense is based on. Then have joint
committees of Congress and the
administration examine each
expense for need in 2012-17 and
reauthorize if deemed essential.
2. Require an examination of the
missions assigned to the
Department of Defense and the costs
incurred by each mission. Require
the administration to review each
mission for rationality and need in
period 2012-17. Roughly 50 percent
of federal expense is incurred by
programs authorized by Congress
and directly or indirectly based on
U.S. military activity. Congress then
reauthorizes essential military
expense.
3. When this "zero-base" budg-
eting exercise is complete, Congress
shall levy taxes to pay for the total. As
part of the tax legislation, an exam-
ination of alternatives to the current
method of taxation, such as the "Fair
Tax," should be undertaken.

Do I believe this will ever hap-
pen? No, not until the U.S. under-
goes a fiscal crisis so urgent that
bipartisan action is compelled. And
then, of course, the problem will be
so urgent that careful, deliberation.
and sound decision-making will be
next to impossible.

100 yearsof
Eastern Star
Our 100th anniversary of the
Order of the Eastern Star is now
history. Fernandina Chapter #55
has been in existence since 1912
and we celebrated it's centennial
on Sunday, April 29, with over 150
people in attendance. Descendants
participated in the memories of
their loved ones, and visitors and
guests alike were introduced to the
Past Matrons and Patrons. Amelia
Masonic Lodge was packed to
capacity and the Worshipful Master,
Robert Tine;r and his brothers gave
us historical recognition. In addi-
tion there are numerous others to
whom, we owe a public debt of grat-
itude, and would appreciate their
acknowledgment in the News-
Leader.
They are: Charlie Monroe of
Digital Village, Mike Taylor, Teen
Peterson of Amelia Island Museum,
Joyce White of Amelia Images,
Steve Kelley of Kelley Pest Control,
Doug Hippler Decorations, Joel
Bewan Landscapes, Dottie Hass of
Chez Lezan Bakery, Pat Hood, IT
Professional, Estelle Wythe, Past
Grand Organist of Florida OES;
Fernandina Beach Mayor Arlene
Filkoff, and Scott Murray of
Murray's Grill.
It should go without saying
that we are grateful for the coverage
by the News-Leader leading up to
this occasion. We leave an historic
record for this Fernandina Chapter
#55, to the Sisters of 2112.

no cost and transferred some city-owned real
estate to FPU. The city also guaranteed the
continued employment of FPU personnel on
their prior employment terms. Sowith these
additional considerations the city actually paid
more than the $26.45 million for a $19.4 million
utility.
So now we have a municipally owned utility
unregulated by anyone other than the city gov-
ernment that created, concealed and perpetuat-
ed this bad deal. Our Public Utility Director.
John Mandrick, a former FPU employee,
proudly acknowledges that he operates the sys-
tem so as to generate an annual profit for the
city. To my mind, that's a phantom tax. When a
'government-owned monopoly provider of an
essential service like water and wastewater is
operated at rates exceeding cost I believe that's.
a tax. And citizens have no professional state
Public Service Commission to appeal to.
So we made a very bad deal that has only
become worse with time. The city needs to
change course. I will write a followup viewpoint
outlining suggestions for the city's future direc-
tion.
By way of disclosures, about a year and a
half ago I wrote a viewpoint detailing why I
thought the city impact fees were illegal and
recommending their suspension pending fur-
ther investigation. I developed and own two
restaurant properties in the city and helped to
successfully fight former city manager Michael
Czymbor's and Mandrick's attempts to impose
almost $800,000 in additional impact fees based
on their secret seat count. 1 am not the named
plaintiff in the class action but did discuss the
issues with the attorneys who filed'the class
action suit. I have paid impact fees and,
although I will recover them when the class
action suit succeeds, the proceeds will go to my
tenants who reimbursed me for those fees. I
am a member of the Nassau County Planning
and Zoning Board that recommended suspen-
sion of county impact fees when the lack of
growth no longer justified their imposition. I
am also a member of the county's Impact Fee
and Concurrency Task Force led by
*Commissioner Danny Leeper which, for the
last year, has been designing anew system for
impact fees to be installed when growth
resumes and such fees are warranted.

..-' 've been home in
Fernandina a little more
J than a week now, and
, 4 already the sights of my
distant travels have receded
into the back corners of my
brain. There is so much here
to replace it!
S Upon arriving home with
' Bucko, I was worried about
the reception I'd get from our
-' shy "new" adopted cat,
4.' Dumela, who has been with
us about a year now and had
-:' just gotten warmed up to my
affections before I left for
four months. Would she
remember me? Did I have to
li: stai't all over, getting her to
trust me? But it turns out
there was no problem on that
score. Dumela spent the first
.--' night that Bucko and I were
S, home from Asia lying
stretched out against my
XI-9 side, just like old times. And
she has followed me around
VS-LEAD'R ever since.
That first morning, lazing
in our bed hanging out with
our coffee, newspapers and
the cat was a real treat after
all those long plane flights to
get here. But soon enough
Dumela got bored with us
and jumped onto the win-
Sdowsill to see what was out
there. And then she raced
into the other room to look
from there. What is going on?
Sure enough, Dumela had
0 alerted us to something
unusual. A pond turtle from
our backyard retention pond
was roaming around on our
back patio. It's spring! The
i, turtle nesting season had
e begun! Over on our beaches
g
I,


I've been
seeing
reports
about the
season's
Ft first nesting
turtles, log-
gerheads as
usual, but
even at least
WILD one rare
WAYS leatherback
sea turtle.
And like the
Pat sea turtles,
Foster-Turley our resident
pond turtles
also lay eggs beginning in
late spring.
Our watch cat Dumela had
alerted us, and then we fol-
lowed up. Over on the vteg-
etable garden side of the yard
we found a few "false crawls,'
or at least this particular tur-
tle had tried to dig a nest and
encountered our landscape
cloth surrounding the flower
beds and given up. Now she
was trudging across the patio
and heading for the other
side yard, which we have
ah'eady named "Turtle
Beach." For it is here in the
bare sahd of Bucko's work
yard that our pond turtles
usually, nest every year. And
now we were home again to
watch them.
With nesting pond turtles,
alas, come the crows. These
intelligent predators know
this side yard as their "All
You Can Eat Buffet." We fol-
lowed the female turtle to the
sandy yard, and sure enough
she started digging a hole.
And even surer, in came the


crows, cawing to each other
about their find, waiting in,
the trees for her to finish so
they could chow down.
As usual, our first morn-
ing back we tried to help the
turtle. We guarded over the
proceedings and kept the
crows at bay. When we left
the yard for just moments,
sure enough, when we came
back a crow was already pok-
ing into the soft sand that the
turtle has recently vacated,
looking for eggs. So Bucko
temporarily put a plastic pot
over the site to deter the
crows, until we can rig up
something better that will
protect the eggs without'
overheating them, until in a
couple of months, like sea
turtle eggs, they are ready to
hatch. The sandy yard was
already full of other holes
that previous crows had
made, digging up previous
turtle nests that we were not
around to protect.
But out in the pond, little
turtles are evident, tiny heads
above the surface, tiny bodies
resting on floating clumps of
vegetation. Despite the vigi-
lance and cleverness of the
crows and our own absence
for some critical spring
weeks, some babies do make
it back to the pond to keep
the cycle going.
But even though we were
out of bed, it.was still too
early for jet-lagged Bucko
and I to face the world. We
returned to our coffees and
newspapers, with Dumela
back at the window again,
looking at cardinals and spar-
rows at the feeder, jumping at
wrens, attempting to catch
bugs against our screen and
listening for the caws of
crows invading our turtle
nests.
Not bad for a first morn-
ing back! Sometimes I won-
der why I ever leave when all
of this action happens just
'outside my bedroom window.
Amelia Island is like no place.
on Earth and it's great to be
back!

ogist.on Amelia Island. She

tions and observations.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Garrett
Pelican of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the "We Tip" program 1-
800-78CRIME also allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Drug bust
A Jacksonville man was
arrested early Sunday at a local
hotel on a list of charges after
someone reported his erratic
behavior and the high level of
intoxication of a female staying
with him, according to a police
report.
Police responding to the
Days Inn on Sadler Road about
2:30 a.m. spotted the man, later
identified as Andrew McCully
Lawless Jr., 21, leaving a room,
they said. Police said Lawless,
began screaming and struggled
with officers in an attempt to
flee. After several minutes spent
knocking on the hotel room
door and not receiving any
response, officers said they
were able to see an unconscious
female lying partially on the
bed.
Using Lawless's room key,
police entered the room and
tried to awaken the female, they.
said. Because she was not
responsive, police summoned
rescue personnel, who trans-
ported'her to Baptist Nassau.
Lawless is charged with pos-
session of more than 20 grams
of marijuana, obstruction of jus-
tice, disorderly intoxication and
three counts of possession of
drug paraphernalia. Police will
seek charges for the female
when she is discharged from
the hospital, they said.
Prowlers
A man and a woman of
Jacksonville were arrested for
.prowling.early Saturday near
Quail Ridge Road in Hilliard
after police received reports of
a possible burglary in progress,
according to a police report.
One witness told police he
believed a neighbor's home was
being burglarized, and that he
had seen a black SUV turn
around in his driveway before
parking in a wooded area
behind 'his home. Police said
hiey ii,-, l._.d a bl:k S.zi ki SUV
abului 1 :. a i pai L..-l in the.
Wooded area with its. lights off.
Awoman, identified later as
Ashley Lynne Wilson of Jack-
sonville, was sitting in the pas-
senger seat, police said. Wilson,
18,. told police she was there
with Jimmy Allen Chalifoux of
Jacksonville and another man
hanging tree stands. ,
Chalifoux, 20, told police he
had driven the suspect to the
area and did not know for what
purpose. He said he wasn't cer-
tain where he was.
Police recovered a ladder
and one pair of bolt cutters lying
rn the woods near the SUV,
according to the report. A sec-'
ond pair was found inside the,
vehicle, police 'said. Chalifoux
told police the ladder and the
bolt cutters were ones they,
brought.
, Chalifoux is charged with
possession of burglary tools and
prowling and is being held at
the Nassau County Jail on a
$20,004 bond.
Wilson is charged with the
same crimes and is being held
on a bond of $12,504.
Safe keeping
A Jacksonville man was
arrested Friday afternoon for
stealing a safe from a gaming
establishment where his girl-
friend works after he admitted
to the theft, according to a
'police report.
Police said Ricky Catanzaro
of Jacksonville broke into the
Allied Veterans gaming estab-
lishment on SR 200 ih Yulee by
smashing a' glass door. Once
inside the business, Catanzaro,
42, allegedly took a large safe
containing roughly $1,400 from
the office and fled, police said.
Police, said the business


owner and employees reviewed
the surveillance tapes of the
event and one of the employ-
ees identified the burglar as her
boyfriend, Catanzaro. Catanzaro
told the employee where he had
taken the safe and police recov-.
ered it.
Catanzaro is charged with
burglary and grand theft and is
being held at Nassau County
Jail on a bond of $25,004.
Stun gun used
Police stunned and arrested
a Yulee man Thursday evening
for resisting officers without vio-
lence, according to his arrest
report.
Police said they were called
about 6:30 p.m. to a St. James
Court residence on reports of a
domestic disturbance. A woman
there was in the process of
telling officers about an argu-
ment the pair had over car keys
when her boyfriend ordered
police out of the house.
When an officer brandished
his stun gun and told him to
calm down and have a seat,
the man started toward the offi-
cers with his fists balled up,
police said. After firing a
charge into the man's torso, offi-
cers handcuffed him, police
said.
He is charged with resisting
officers without violence.
High-speed chase
A Jacksonville man on pro-
bation for driving under the
influence with injury was arrest-
ed early May 7 following a high-
speed. chase that exceeded 85
miles per hour, according to a
police report.
An off-duty officer told police
that about 2 a.m. that the driver
of a Nissan van was driving
recklessly and had nearly col-
lided with him on SR 200, police
said.,
Police located the van, which
turned into the 5 Points Pack-
aging Store at South Eighth
Street and Amelia Road, and
pulled behind it before activat-
ing their emergency lights,
according to the report.
The driver, later identified
as Cedric Elemual Jones of
Jacksonville, hopped back in
the van and drove onto Amelia
Road, police said. Police said
they activated their sirens and
pursued the van to South
Eighth Street and T.J. Courson
Road, where it briefly stopped.
As police exited their vehi-
cles to make contact with Jones,
he turned and sped north onto
South 14th Street, they said.
Police said they were moving
at roughly 85 miles per hour in
order to keep up with Jones.
Jones, they said, sped through
several stop signs at high
speeds before pulling into the
yard of 1014 South 10th St,
where his van struck a small
tree on the driver's side.
A computer search revealed
his license is suspended and he
is serving probation for driving
under the influence causing
injury, police said.
Jones, 41, is charged with
fleeing and eluding and driving
while license suspended or
revoked with knowledge..

More charges for


serial burglary suspect


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
A Fernandina Beach man
arrested in October for the bur-
glary of a local gas station and
suspected of other burglaries
in the area left behind a trail
that has led to more charges.
Police charged Timothy
Aaron McEldowney, who has
been incarcerated in Nassau
County Jail since his arrest last
fall, with burglary, grand theft
and attempted burglary May 9
after he allegedly admitted to
the crimes during an interview.
McEldowney confessed,
after lab reports obtained from.
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement April 23 linked his
shoeprints to other crime
scenes, police said.
Police said Bo and Mike's
Detailing reported Sept. 22 that
someone tried unsuccessfully
to break into his business
through the roof and a bath-
room window, damaging the
roof. That person also pulled

from the busi-

said. The cul-
ir c prit left behind

sions, which
McEldowney were sent to a
FDLE crime
lab.
In a separate case, police
said someone broke into an area
business on Sept. 23 through a
hole in the roof, took a cash reg-
ister containing $1,000, left
through the roof and fled.
impressions recovered at that
scene to FDLE on Nov. 23.
In both cases, the size of the
shoe prints and the wear pat-
terns left behind led investiga-
tors to believe the same indi-'
vidual was responsible.
Following his October arrest,
McEldowney remained a sus-
pect in a handful of burglaries in
the county, Sheriff Tommy
Seakraves said at the time.


"One significant piece of
information is that the burgla-
ries ceased when we brought
(McEldowney) in for inter-
viewing," Fernandina Beach
Police Chief Jim Hurley noted at
the time.
McEldowney allegedly told
investigators May 9 that he
yanked the phone lines from
the first business to disable the
alarm system and tried to enter
through the roof, but wasn't
able.
.During the same interview,
he told authorities he entered
the second business through
the roof, grabbed the till and
left.
Police arrested McEldow-
ney Oct. 5 for the burglary of
A1A Gas Station on South
Eighth 'Street in Fernandina
Beach after identifying him in
surveillance footage obtained
from the 'business.
McEldowney remains in
Nassau County Jil on a com-
bined bond of $45,006.

DEA honors local detective


U.S. Attorney Robert O'Neill
presided over a federal awards
Ceremony last month at the
Federal Courthouse in
Jacksonville and announced
that local narcotics investiga-
tor Matt Bowen and his DEA
Task Force partner Randy
SUBMI'riED Crews of the Baker County
ews, Sheriff's Office have been
e Savell. named the U.S. Attorney's
Outstanding Law Enforcement
Officers for 2011.
The special recognition fol-
lowed a lengthy investigation
led by Bowen and Crews,
which resulted in the disman-
tling of a major drug trafficking
organization with ties to Mexico
and Texas.
In March 2010, the DEA
Jacksonville District Office ini-
tiated an investigation that iden-
tified and targeted a major drug
j .' trafficking organization believ-
S ed to be importing significant
amounts of cocaine from
Mexico through Texas to sev-
eral retail distributors in the
greater Jacksonville area.,
Several of those involved had
prior federal drug convictions
and had served prior federal
prison sentences. Evidence
gathered during the investiga-
tion revealed a common link
from the Mexican sources of
supply to identified members


of the organization in North
Florida.
In December 2010,
Mississippi law enforcement
conducted a traffic stop on 1-10
resulting in the seizure of
$230,139 in cash from this
organization. Evidence derived
from that seizure linked the
ongoing Jacksonville case to
open cases in Houston and
along the southwest border,
with Mexico.
Subsequent evidence indi-
cated that the organization-had
been in existence for an extend-
ed period of time.
In March 2011, agents and
Task Force officers conducted
extensive analysis of available
information, applying the use
of modern technology, which
resulted in two additional
seizures of U.S. currency total-
ing $71,000. Based on the work
of Bowen and Crews, law
enforcement seized an addi-
tional $183,670 in cash from a
cooperating defendant, who
acknowledged that the curren-
cy represented drug proceeds.
DEA Jacksonville Task Force
Group, working with DEA
Houston agents, seized 16 kilo-.
grams of cocaine from the iden-
tified Mexican sources of sup-.
ply in Houston. On March 29,
2011, a cooperating .defendant


surrendered an additional
$100,000 as proceeds derived
from cocaine sales in the
Jacksonville area.
On April 1, 2011, Task Force
members arrested two co-con-.
spirators in Baker County who
were ultimately charged with
federal conspiracy. On April 5,
they arrested two additional co-
conspirators in Jacksonville and
seized an additional $25,000 as
they attempted to take delivery
of 16 kilograms of cocaine.
On July 27 an unidentified
co-coqspirator was arrested in
Tampa. This individual made
the contacts between co-con-
spirators in Texas and
Northeast Florida to initiate the
drug trafficking organization.
At the time of his arrest he was
in possession of one pound of
methamphetamine.
, To date, this investigation
has resulted in the arrest of 11
co-conspirators, and most have
now pleaded guilty. This organ-
ization was responsible for the
distribution of more than 100
kilograms of cocaine into the
Northeast Florida area. As a
result of this investigation, law
enforcement seized 16 kilo-
grams of cocaine, a pound of
methamphetamine and nearly
$609,000 from this single drug
trafficking organization.


Local perspective


BY JAMES T. HURLEY.
Chiefof Police'
The Fernandina Beach
Police Department is commit-
ted to the goal of'reducing ille-
gal narcotics activity in our City.
and for that reason we partici-
pate in the Jacksonville Regional
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion Narcotics Ta-i; F,.,'
There are many practical
considerations associated with
our joining, other agencies in
the DEA Task Force and it is
important to give appropriate'
weight' to the numerous and
sometimes subtle variables
when determining proper
strategic and cost-benefit analy-
sis.
It can be argued that
because the federal approach
to narcotics investigation can-
. not succeed without local law
enforcement assistance and
vice-versa,, we are therefore
somewhat obliged to contribute
minimal resources to the over-
all effort to fight a legitimate
"war on drugs," granted this
may be the least compelling rea-
son. Narcotics operations often
involve organized crime com-
ponents and widespread net-
works that cross jurisdictional
lines, and consequently demand
complex investigative strategy
and resources. Arresting minor'
dealers on the street corners of
Fernandina Beach does little to
stem the flow of illegal drugs
into our area.


From a
local perspec-
tive, we have
a clearly
demonstrated
need for
proactive nar-
cotics enforce-
Hurley. ment in our,
city, on the
island and
throughout Nassau County.
Further, it is reasonable to
assume that drug dealers, will
exploit any area with lax law
enforcement efforts. For those
reasons we are continuing to
address both upper level and
street level narcotics sales. Our
officers regularly disrupt local
drug sales and often arrest
those attempting to sell nar-
cotics to area users. This kind of
work becomes increasingly dan-
ger6tis and less effective the
longer our officers are exposed,
considering the fact that we are
operating within a very limited
physical environment.
Within the context 6f the
Task Force approach, officer
safety issues are given'careful
consideration and planning, as
appropriate intervention and
take-down scenarios require
precise teamwork. Our current
approach serves to provide
some anonymity'and cover for
our officers working in these
situations, as well as for those
officers assigned to the Task
Force Hiw vire ri'ember-.ship
in- rhe T:ask Forice alo accom-
plishes many related goals..
The DEA provides an abun-
dance of expertise not other-
wise available to local law
enforcement. They are on the
cutting edge of narcotics inves-
tigation and they bring that
experience to the Task Force
in the form of several opera-
tional advantages. Narcotics
operations are time-consuming
and manpower intensive. The'
Task Force focuses on narcotics
operations alone and they have
access to a wide net of intelli-
gence, which is best managed
and controlled on a multi-juris-
dictional kvel They also have
the advantage of historical per-
spective, having been focused
on a single mission since their
inception. Additionally, they
provide a training component
for local operations; surveillance
equipment' in the form of air-
planes, cars and boats; technical
and logistical support with wire-
tap operations, fixed cameras,
and weapons; financialrecords;
as well as buy money for drugs
and cash for confidential inform-
ants.


Because of our par icipation
in the Task Force, oe ar : o,-n-i
able to influence decision-mak-
ing with respect to how time
and resources are utilized. We
have been able to bring the
weight of the Task Force to bear
on local operators, making fed-
eral cases that will maximize
our goal of dismantling nar-
cotics operations in the region,
while having a positive impact
on local criminal activity.
Although our participation
in the DEATask F)ui ce is c-Lar-
ly warranted without further
justification, the city also bene-
,fits in monetary terms.
Narcotics operations invariably
require a greatdeal of overtime'
expenditure, as scheduling of
informants and targets becomes,
difficult to manage. The Task
Force reimburses the City for
outi over time usage at a rate of
$17,200 annually. In addition,
asset forfeiture sharing among
Task Force participants can pro-
vide significant revenues that
translate into cost savings in the
Police Department budget
Future trends in the war on
drugs'suggest that our partici-
pation in the Task Force will
continue to pay dividends, espe-
cially regarding operational
effectiveness and officer safe-
ty. For several reasons we can
expect to see new challenges
related to methamphetamine in
thisregion because of a deadly
combination of factors. For
example, meth. is cheaper, the
."high" lasts longer, and it is eas-
ily manufactured within this
country, all considered benefits
by methamphetamine users.
Meth labs are still very dan-
gerous and volatile operations,
but they are becoming easier
to manage by amateur chemists
and they continue to present a
significant challenge to law
enforcement.
Prescription drug abuse is
also a growing problem for law
enforcement, as we see more
and more multi-drug toxicity
deaths each year. These acci-
dental deaths are primarily the
result of reckless personal
behavior involving powerful
medications taken in combina-
tion with other drugs, both legal
/and illegal, and alcohol or other
substances. Residents and visi-
tors are encouraged to dispose
of unwanted or expired med-
ications by dropping them in a
certified disposal container like
the one at the Fernandina.

that these powerful drugs do
not end up in the wrong hands
or in our water system.

Kevin Na was beset by a mental
V block which caused him to
constantly repeat waggles and
practice swings and back off his
shots during the final round of THE PLAYERS
Championship. The 28-year-old overnight
leader was subjected to heckling and shot a
miserable four-over 76 to tie for seventh as final
pairing partner Matt Kuchar triumphed. "I knew it
wasn't going to be easy," said Na. "I don't want
to say upset, but I was a little disappointed at the
crowd." Possibly -the ugliest moment came on
the par-4 sixth. 'We had a clown come up and
say, after we just made bogey on five, he said,
'I've got $2,000; you better not start choking',"
Na's caddie, Kevin Harms said.


One of the common issues the amateur golfer has that causes a loss of power in the
golf swing is a reverse pivot. A reverse pivot occurs when the weight of the golfer moves
to their front foot during the backswing, which causes the spine to tilt in the wrong direc-
j tion. In trying to keep your head still, you prevent a good shoulder turn from happening.
as well as the proper weight shift to the back foot In order to correct a reverse pivot prob-
lem, here are a couple of suggestions. The most important key is to make sure that your
hips stay still on your backswing. You have to imagine that you are in a drum and your hips do not
touch either side of the drum on the backswing. The second piece of advice is to get your sternum
directly over your back foot at the top of the backswing to ensure the proper weight distribution.

of Amelia Island beach fish-

... With a

tip on hand,
the very next day, Capt. Allen
Mills spotted diving birds and
"whitewater" just a mile south
from the popular St Marys
inlet.
'"I have spotted the men-
haden schools and there is a
bunch of fish hammering the
pogies," Mills reported on his
VHF marine radio. "They are
just a mile'south of the inlet
and it's game on."
Capt. Danny Flynn navi-
gated north with his fishing
party, certain that he would
locate both menhaden and
gamefish. Just the other day
his fishing party ran all the
way to Georgia's "Stafford
Shoals" and found both cobia
and "bull" redfish feeding on
the menhaden schools.
Upon arrival Mills wit-
nessed what most fishermen

fishing party. "Grab those 30-

Mills' fishing party, includ-
ing four seasoned fishermen,
took little time in making
accurate casts into the nearby
feeding frenzy. After engaging
their spinning reels, all were
hooked up to "bull" reds
weighing from 20-35 pounds.


Meanwhile Flynn had also
located a massive school of
menhaden holding just off
from shallow water bars at
Georgia's "Stafford Shoals."
Longtime fishing client and
friend Brent Downing was
positioned on the bow with a
20-pound spinning rod rigged
to a jig and buck tail lure com-
bination.
Flynn spotted a pair of
cobia swimming along the
edge of the menhaden school
from his boat's spotting tower
and said, "Brent, a pair of .
cobia is swimming alongside


the school of menhaden and
straight off from our bow."
It did not take long for
Downing to spot the pair of
cobia and follow up vith a
perfect cast just past the
heads of the lead cobia.
Instantly the Flynn fishing
party was hooked up to excit-
ing cobia action.

It's turtle time


- a perfect reason to volunteer


For the second year I am on
turtle patrol as a volunteer with
Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch.
My job is help look for signs of sea
turtle activity from May through
August.
Not unlike a paper route, each
volunteer is assigned a piece of,
beach that they must be responsible
for. I am one of over 60 volunteers
who take a day each week between
May and September. On Wednesday
mornings, just as the sun comes up,
I head to the beach to check for
signs of any new nests. If the distinc-
tive trail leading to a new nest is
spotted, we call the boss, Mary
Duffy, who coordinates the volun-
teers that come and mark the nests
and set up a protective barrier.
My route goes from the Scott
Road access to Peters Point. Not bad


duty. Coffee in
hand, I head north .
passing a variety of ."- -.
highrise buildings //
and The Rite-
Carlton, Amelia
Island. Despite all
the population and
use of the beach-
front bordering
these-properties, 1FROM
the intrepid mother THE
turtles make their PORCH
way out of the dark
-ocean and to the
beach where they Dickie
themselves hatched Anderson
some 25 years ago.
Duffy, president of Amelia Island
Sea Turtle Watch, runs a highly suc-
cessful program that dates back to
1985. "This organization is.a tightly-


knit group of community members
who see the *
importance of preserving this impor-
tant part of the island's natural her-
itage. Sea turtles have been around
for 100 million years. They were on
this island long before us," she
notes.
Guess the turtles didn't get the
memo this year. The first nest sight-
ing actually occurred before our
May 1 start date. Even more excit-
ing than the first turtle nest sighting
- the nest is that of a leatherback
turtle, a rare find. She has very good
taste; she pulled her great body out
of the ocean and decided to lay her
eggs right in front of The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia Island. Ahead of
schedule, seven nests have been
marked at the time of this writing.
The volunteers of Amelia Island


Sea Turtle Watch'are determined to
give these unique and mysterious
creatures the best possible start on
their incredible journeys. Laws
have been passed that limit the
amount of light visible from the
beach. There is great danger that
tiny hatchlings will mistake artificial
light for the moonlight that should
lead them to sea. 'Once a nest is
identified it is quickly marked with
the distinctive yellow triangle of
tape. A stake is dated and num-
bered. If necessary, a nest is relocat-
ed to insure its safety.
I take my patrol very seriously.
After all, by the end of the summer I
may be grandmother to hundreds of.
baby turtles!
There is much to learn from the.
organization's informative website.
You can check for scheduled excava-


tions so you can watch as volunteers
dig up a recently hatched nest to
count eggs and, perhaps, help some
little turtles left behind find their
way to the ocean.
If you find a stranded turtle or
have a concern, call the Amelia
Island Sea Turtle Watch, Inc. at 583-
1913 or call the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWCC) Division of Law
Enforcement at 1-888-404-FWCC or
*FWC from your cell phone.
For information, the excavation
schedule and nest counts go to
www.ameliaislandturtlewatch.com
or call 583-1913.

comments. Books are available at

Quilts of thanks

one of RAIN Humane
Society's "special needs" pets.
Katherine came to live at
RAIN from the county facility

her qwner, just two days after
having her front leg removed.
Katherine had a very slow
recovery and adjustment to
her new surroundings and sit-
uation with only three- legs.
At first, Katherine had a
hard time walking, eating and
keeping herself groomed, but
after several months of
patience from the other cats of
the cattery, and our helpful
volunteers, Katherine now
functions totally normal like
all of the other cats at RAIN.
She does have a prominent
limp when she walks, but her
personality makes up for it all.
She is extremely friendly,
does well with other kitties
and would love to have a place about 7 years old, and current

WEDNESDAY. MAY 16.2012 ABOUND TOWN News-Leader


When does middle age' begin, end?


TALLAHASSEE Pushing 50? No
worries -just think of it as the new 30.
In a youth-obsessed culture,
nobody likes to think they've reached
that murky milestone known as "mid-
dle age."
Especially women.
In a paper published in the journal
Advances in Life Course Research,
Florida State University researcher
Anne Barrett examines how people
view the start and end of middle age.
The topic intrigued the 41-year-old
associate professor of sociology at
FloridaState's Pepper Institute on
Aging and Public Policy (who views
herself as middle-aged, by the way)
because "there are so few clear mark-
ers of its boundaries, unlike adulthood
or old age." Few studies have exam-
ined people's views of middle age com-
pared to young adulthood or ok! age.
So Barrett and graduate student.


Erica Toothman combed through two
waves of nationally representative data
collected in the United States in 1995-
1996 and 2004-2006 that examined how
various factors influence people's views
of the timing of middle age.
The findings in their paper -
"Mapping Midlife: An Examination of
Social Factors Shaping Conceptions
of the Timing of Middle Age" are
important for several'reasons, mainly
that they reflect an ongoing gender
bias as well as perceptions of earlier'
onset of mid-life among the economi-
cally disadvantaged.
Here are some key findings:
Both women and men view the
start and end of middle age as occur-
ring earlier forwomen than for men,
consistent with the argument that a
"double standard of aging" exists that
disadvantages women.
Younger adults tend to see mid-


Is 50 the new 30?

'Is 60 the new 40?



dle age as occurring at younger ages
than do older adults. In other words,
as people grow older, they tend to see
this life stage as occurring later.
People who are more socioeco-
nomically disadvantaged or belong to
racial or ethnic minority groups tend
to view this stage as occurring earlier
than do their peers.
Others likely to view middle age
as occurring earlier include those- in
poor health, those who began fami-
lies young, those who are divorced,
and those without living parents.
It turns out that we're in what
Barrett describes as "the curious posi-


tion of wanting to live a long life but
knowing it requires moving into the
most devalued stage of life late old
age."
Over the years, Barrett has increas-
ingly focused her.research on how
and why age inequality persists when
it's in everyone's best interest to chal-
lenge the "devaluation" of older adults
and old age. She also wondered
what strategies people use to retain.
positive views of themselves as they
age.
Some people maintain a younger
"age identity" than their actual chrono-
logical age, Barrett said, such as a 60-
year-old who says she feels decade
younger.
"We could interpret this perception
as a way a person promotes a more
positive self-image in a culture that
celebrates youth and devalues old
age," she said.


As members of the perpetually
youthful baby boomer generation con-
front old age and perhaps find even
more creative ways to alter their age
identities and their views of middle
and old age Barrett's research is
particularly timely.
Barrett and Toothman are cur-
rently conducting another study that
looks at the health consequences of
these conceptions of middle age.
And just when does middle age
begin and end? Though there's no
hard data that clearly defines the book-
ends of mid-life, it seems we have a
pretty good idea about when it's time
to view our youth from the rearview
mirror:
According to Barrett's research,
most people think of middle age as
beginning at 44 and ending at 60.
At 60? Heck that's not old at all.
Think of it as the new 40.

walls and those are double-insulated.

MY NAME IS Jon About 2 weeks ago
my best friend, age 24 passed away in
a house fire leaving behind his wife and
2 children ages 6 and 14. They were
renting and therefore had no rental
insurance, so they were left with
nothing. If there are any items you
would be willing to donate as far as
furniture, household items, toys etc.,
anything that you would normally
throw away or take to Goodwill, I know
they would be more then grateful.
Please call me at (904)859-4496, I can
pick up.
