Storm damage




at $3.4 million

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
In'light of Nassau County's cdn-
tinuing.efforts to tally damage left
behind byTropical Storm Debby, com-
missioners have extended a local state
of emergency until Tuesday' Damage
tallies thus far are more than $3.4 mil-
lion.
The board made that, determina-
tion, and voted to delegate additional
spending power to County Manager
Ted $elby at special meeting called
Tuesday. I Commissioner Barry
p loway was absent.
~'Leesentatives from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
were scheduled to meet with county
officials on Thursday to examine the
extent of damage in Nassau and deter-
mine the county's need for assistance.
: As of Thursday, FEMA had desig-
nated 11 counties for emergency assis-
tance, but Nassau was not among
them. Clay, Baker and Columbia coun-
ties were included.
At the agency's request, Selby
planned to send personnel from the


engineering and building departments
'to accompany two FEMA assessment
teams. Preliminary estimates from
emergency management suggest that
68 structures in the county suffered
from the storm's effects.
"Right now we're looking at about
$3.4 million worth of damages,"
Emergency Management Director
Danny Hinson said Tuesday. "That is
a very raw estimate some of the
homes we haven't even seen; you can't
get to them."
County employees continue to tally
costs accrued in the recovery efforts,
Hinson added.
"I still don't know that we've
reached every constituent to say, 'Do
you have damage?'" Commissioner
Stacy Johnson said. "I mean, I don't
know what we can do in the future to
make sure that we have a good way of
assessing damage."

boring Baker and Camden and

News-Leader.
Three firms will compete for archi-
tectural and engineering services to
expand the Fernandina Beach library
but, as the result of a new law, the pub-
lic will be excluded from their presen-
tation to city commissioners.
According to City AttorneyTammi
Bach, a new state law makes potential
city contractors exempt from present-
ing their projects at open public meet-
ings. Although now exempt from the
Sunshine Law, these presentation meet-
ings must still be recorded and ulti-
mately made available to the public.


Bach said the new law was passed
by the Florida Legislature to protect the
vendors' work product and proprietary
information. In an open meeting aven-
dor could use another vendor's ideas or
change their presentation based on
that information.
The new law states that "Any por-
tion of a meeting at which a negotiation
with a vendor is conducted pursuant to
a competitive solicitation, at which a
vendor makes an oral presentation as
part of a competitive solicitation, or at
which a vendor answers questions as
part of a competitive solicitation is

Tips tokeep kids


safe in the sun


SNEW YORK, N.Y.-With
summer under way, children
will spendmore time out-
doors, in backyards and at
parks, summer camps, beach-
'es arid other vacation destina-
tibns So, it is important to
remember that exposure to
the'sWh's ultraviolet radiation
S(UYVR) strongly linked to all i
forms of skin cancer.
Luckily, with good sun safe-
ty habits including proper
clothing and sunscreen, chil-'.
dren can enjoy all sorts of out-
door activities without risking
their health.
"By teaching your children
to incorporate sun protection '
into their daily routine, you'll
significantly lower their risk of
developing skin cancer as an
:adult," says Perry Robins, ,
MD, president of The Skin
Cancer Foundation.
Help children stay safe in
the sun with the following tips
from The Skin Cancer
Foundation:'
Seek the shade: Remind
kids to play in shaded areas in
order to limit UV exposure.
Check with camps to see if
there are adequate places for
.campers to seek:shade during
outdoor activities taking place
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.,
When UV rays are most
intense.
Avoid tanning: Tweens and
teens may be tempted to "lie
out" or visit tanning salons..
But there is nd-such thing as' a
safe, healthy or protective tan',
because tanning itself is
caused by DNA damage to the
skin. One or more blistering
,"sunburns in childhood or ado-
lescence more than'doubles a
person's chances of develop-
ing.potentialy deadly
melapomas later in life.
Cover up with clothing:
SConsider dressing them in
swim shirts or rash guards
while in the water at the pool
or beach. Protect the face,
neck and eyes with broad-,
brimtned hats and UV-block-
ing sunglasses.
Use sunscreen: For every-
day use, lookfor broad-spec-
trum (UA/UVB) sunscreen
with an SPF of 15 or higher. If
your child will be spending
extended time outdoors, use a


water-

Sbri-oad-
spectrum
sunscreen
'.with an
SPF of30
S or higher.
Apply 1 ounce (2tfable-.:.
spoons) of sunscreen to your.
child's entire body 30 minutes
before going outside. Assist
children in reapplying sun-
iscreen every two hours and
after swimming or playing.
sports, because water and
sweat wash sunscreen away.
If your children apply their
own sunscreen, remind them
to cover easy-to-miss spots.
Keep newborns out of the'
sun. Sunscreens should be
used on babies over the age of
six months.
Practice what you preach:
Incorporate these tips into
your own Iifestyle. You'll not
only set a good example, but
you'll reduce your risk of skin
cancer, sun damage and skin,
aging.
More detailed suggestions
and recommendations are
available in the 2012 Skin
Cancer Foundation Journal
article, "Repelling the Rays
When Kids Play," available at
www.skincancer.org/journal.
Additionally, The Skin
Cancer Foundation recently .
debuted Sun Smart U, an
interactive education program
that teaches students in ,
grades six through 12 how to
make sun-safe choices that are
vital in.preventing skin cancer.
The.program highlights
the importance of following a
proper sun protection regimen
and the dangers of tanning .

young woman with Stage III
melanoma. To download the

skin cancer through public and
professional education and
research. For more informa-

removal and replacement,
would cost roughly $56,000.
Because the old carpet is
more than a decade old, it is
not covered by the county's

seek to recoup some of that cost
from FEMA, immediate
expenses' would be.drawn from

pointed out that through 'the

'the county had opened and

paid Matthew Cory Crump
of Yulee $80 for the tires and
a set of rims on June 13 while'
investigating a crash involv-
ing Crump on US 17, police
said.
Crump, 23, has been
charged with grand theft and
dealing in stolen property
for the alleged thefts and
remains in Nassau County
Jail on a bond of $20,004
Cole said Crump was
driving a blue Chevy pickup
hauling a trailer of goods that
included the tires and rims,
according to a police report.
Crump reportedly told Cole
he needed to sell the tires
and.rims because he needed
$150 to keep his power
turned on. When Cole said
he had only $80 cash on him,
Crump agreed to sell him
the tires and rims for that
price instead, police said.
After meeting with Cole,
deputies were able to dis-
cern that the tires and rims
he purchased were previ-
ously reported stolen from
a black Chevy pickup parked
at a Wesley Road residence,
police said.

when he was hired full-time
as a correctional officer. On

Serial burglars
Four Yulee men have been
charged with burglary, attempt-
ed burglary and grand theft
after nine area businesses were
burglarized June 11-12, police
said..

Road,Justin Drew Royal, 24, of
85069 Mobley Drive, Reggie
John Chaney, 43, and John
Benjamin Alvarez III, 27, both of
85024 Wesley Road, broke into
several businesses near the
Target shopping center, includ-
ing Ichiban Buffet, the 777
Game Room and the Hair
Cuttery.
The men smashed glass
doors and windows at the busi-
nesses and stole cash registers,
police said.
Police said video surveil-
lance at 777 Game Room
showed three of the men exit a
vehicle, smash the front glass
and enter the business. Afourth
man, police said, remained in
the vehicle.
Police stopped a silver pick-
up matching the one seen in
the video June 12 and saw what
appeared to be pieces of a
cash register in the truck's bed,
according, to the report. A
large plastic bag of coins sat in
plain sight inside the cab, police
said.
After the men were detained,
SChaney allegedly told police
that he, Alvarez, Fowler and
Royal were responsible for the
crime spree. He drove his truck
to the businesses and stayed
behind the wheel while the
other three broke in and
grabbed the loot, the report stat-
ed.

nesses hit during the spree and
told them the routes the men


took to the locations, police said.

A Georgia man was stunned
and arrested early Sunday fol-
lowing a bar fight, according to
a police report.
Police said the man, identi-
fied as Deonte Rashawn
Sullivan, was part of a crowd in
the parking lot of Caseys
Lounge on US 17 South in Yulee
that refused to disperse about 3
a.m. After Sullivan and another
patron got into a row and
refused police orders to get on
the ground, officers stunned
him, according, to a police
report.

Ga., is charged with possession
of controlled substance without

without violence. He remains
in Nassau County Jail on a bond
of $13,006.

early Saturday with battery on
a fellow inmate after surveil-
lance footage revealed he insti-
gated a scuffle between the pair,
according to a police report.
Colby Alexander Bradberry
was charged with battery about
5 a.m. after security footage
showed him and another inmate
arguing before their disagree-
ment turned violent and
Bradberry, 24, walked up td
the other inmate and started
punching him in'the face, police
said.
When the other inmate tried
to grip a handrail for support
and pull himself away from the
fray, Bradberry grabbed him
by the jumpsuit and swung him
into a bunk-bed frame, police
said. The other inmate suffered
a one-inch gash on his fore-

)f signs afflicts us


VIEWPOINT/DEBBYARNOLD/FERN




A plague (
A plague of signs has settled upon our
island making its way out onto the beach, a pox
of the "uglies" upon all that is natural and
charming and historic. Those responsible
speak of signage, quite the phony-baloney,
Spseudo-scientific epithet sounds like silage
(aka fermented pig slop). The too many offi-
cious traffic signs compound the misery from
all those hard-sell, illuminated retail signs and
loathsome real estate signs slopped along A1A.
Is this obnoxious clutter of eyesores the best
way to market stuff?
Along Eighth Street eye-flogging blocks of
retail signs are more in tune with urrban blight
than the gateway to our historic downtown and
SOld Town. Even with.promised softening by
the new palms; loud-mouthed signs shriek: No
charm in this schlock border town.
Within a block of the SadlerrFletcher round
about grows a thickening forest of steel poles
bearing in-your-face directions, reminders,
do's, don't and reiterations of same for all who
are fundamentally misguided. Add in the dozen
or so retailers, restaurants, realtors and lodg-
ings with multiple signs,augmented by mes
sage boards and banners an, what ya got?
Dizzying roundabout eye noise.
Meanwhile, the roundabout byHarris
Teeter is getting to be its own tilt-a-whirl ofdis-
tracting signs. Meanwhile, there's a bumper
crop of too closely spaced "No Parking" signs.
Meanwhile, threatening red 'Tow Away" signs
' have multiplied like vermin.
S Lately our highway signs have spawned'
signs.'Along Fletcher where 35.mph is posted
in multiples per mile, there's a new sign
"Speed Limit Strictly Enforced." Strictly? How
strictly? Lately some stop signs have been pref-
aced a block in advance by a sign proclaiming:
Stop Ahead; ditto for the gawky new crosswalk
signs. Awk! Now there's a crosswalk for golfers
on Fletcher with little centerline signs to pump
up the message of the curbside signs saying
the same thing. This suggests to me that
golfers have attained extreme golfer-watch,
endangered status. A block south a new post-
ing (it's huge) reminds us to stop for stopped

W can end health care crisis
Wemi dhl Hc ,ll l~~ll


Recently we had the opportuni.
ty to read a book written by for-
mer Senator Bill Bradley. The
book is entitled We Can Do Better
When he speaks of health care he
discusses how America has been
debating this issue since the turn
of the century. The issue of health
care reform was always debated
as to whether or not America even
had issues with health care deliv-
ery and finance. As the result of
the action taken by President .
Obama and the Democratically
controlled Congress a bill of
health care.reform was passed
and upheld by the U.S. Supreme'
Court No longer are we debating
whether there is a concern about
our health care"system now we
are debating nationally and in
every locale how are we going to
pay for any solutions that are cre-
ated.
There is another problem that
is occurring in our region and also
nationally. Many people are either
still arguing there is a health care
crisis oi they-are thinking of legal
ways to undo what President
Obama and the Congress did,
Theyhave refused to embrace the
problem and still see it as a divi-
sive issue between Democrats and
Republicans. Advocates for the
homeless might rem.entber that
President Reagan made a com-
ment'that there were no.homeless
in Washington, DC. That belief
was quickly retracted when he
saw homeless adults and children
sleeping on the subway grates in

have worked locally with citizens,

Solutions. There is one program
here in Florida that we are quite
knowledgeable about We served
as strategic planning consultants
to this effort. The program,
Hillsborough County Health Plan,
has been in existence for 10 years.
The plan was created by a
grassroots approach similar to
what this article is proposing. This
is funded by using a percentage of
the real estate taxes in the county.
Before this was created the citi-
zens voted this in place in a refer-
endum. We do not know if this
plan will work in Northeast
Florida, however we are propos-
ing that a group of stakeholders,.


citizens and interested parties cre-
ate local groups in each county
and then when the counties have
come together perhaps meet as a
regional grqup.
We are appealing to citizens,
elected officials, the clergy and
social service and health care
providers to cometogether and
begin the dialogue. Anyone inter-
ested please contact me and I will
act as a clearinghouse to put peo-
ple together in various locations in
our North'east Florida.
When the groups come togeth-
er and.discuss the issues they may
not decide to create any solutions.
However, the fact that the groups
are meeting will serve to be a con-
tinual influence on the political cli-
mate so that one day we may all
realize a solution. And we will no
longer have a health care.crisis.

school buses (buses equipped with a pop-out
red stop sign and flashing lights and a blinking
strobe). If some scofflawwants to run amok,
signage; however well intended, is bootless.
Nearby a big blue highway sign officially

Foods are up ahead. Need to know Intel?
A few weeks ago a letter write took aim at
real estate and campaign signs on steroids. So
did Beryl. Beryl also took out several highway
signs which inturn could have taken.out one of
us (ouch!). Unfortunately, Beryl al$6 destroyed
an artisan wood-hewn sign welcoming visitors
to Historic Fernandina; this in the wake.of new
ugly public service, DOT-inspired historic alu-
minum signs screwed into steel poles already
bearing city of Fernandina Beach boundary
signage. What historic tidbits flank our city lim-
its?
An addendum to the previous letter writer's
comments: It doesn't seem particularly high-;
minded for an,individual seeking a school
board position to stick his campaign posters on
parcels of land already bearing his very own
"For Sale"'realtor's sign. If he wishes to suffer
the little children to come unto him, perhaps,
he should seek nioralhigh ground for his sig-
nage avoiding this tacky conflict of interest.
Perhaps all candidates might consider the neg-
ative effects of lambasting every vacant parcel
of land with their 'names writ large.

minute getting the seaweed off our beaches, so
can we please do something about nuisance
signage? Other communities have done so.
Duval County bought up and destroyed most
billboards, and they signed ah ordinance ban-


ning "stick in the ground" signs. Coral Gables
is one of several communities limiting real
estate signs to no larger than 40 square inches
for a residence (that's smaller than a license
plate); 250 square inches for a commercial
property. Commercial pennants, banners,
streamers, blinking lights, fluttering, spinning
rotating, gyrating or similar attention attracting
devices are outlawed there and elsewhere in
Florida.
Been to Jekyll Island lately? No proliferation
of sign's there, That's because it's owned by the
state of Georgia, which knows how to maintain
its investment in naturalbeauty and it history.
Been to Sea Island, Ga.? Probably not, because
those beneath the ancient oaks abhor signs
and won't let you past the gated entry. Do they
fear you'd require lots of annoying signs to
drive, bank, clothe or forage for food. Been to
Hilton Head, S.C., where political signs are for-
bidden? Its beaches aren't aslovely as ours, its
bcean not as'clear, but it thrives without a sin-
gle neon or internally illuminated sign. Its
Signs Standards "seek to preserve the island
Character" permitting illumination of signs by a
stationary light source, shielded and'directed
solely on the sign. And, wonder of wonders,
visitors and residents spend piles of money
there because low-key, soft-sell rakes in the,
bucks (duh!). I
Meanwhile just across the Shave Bridge
builders of the "retail corridor" opt to pay the
fine for cutting down trees rather than not cut-
ting down the trees so people can see retail
signs. And our county commissioners, at least
some, advocate bigger commercial signs. Did
they fioget that trees and shade matter terri-
bly? That fouled sky and asphalt wastelands
don't beckoi? (Yes, the billboard industry'
donates to campaigns; the payback being cities
and counties think twice about regulating the
size and placement of billboards). Meanwhile,
locals rely on good ole word of mouth.
Meanwhile visitors whip out their iPh6nes to
find the best deal/quality of everything from
lodgings toflip-flops to' linguini.
Signs are so yesterday!

FRIDAY, JULY 6.2012/NEWS-LEADER


students learn how to excel
GLENDA S. JENKINS
For the News-Leader
IMPACT Your World Church Inc. of Yulee presented
a "Youth College and Scholarship Workshop" oh
Saturday, June 23. The event, benefiting the
church's scholarship fund and youth outreach, pro-
vided a tutorial on preparing to attend college and the
steps to pursue funding for college.
Students and parents also learned about obtaining a
higher education that results in the skills needed to
enter the increasingly competitive technological work-
force..
"Grants are like coupons," said Eron Thompson,
workshop facilitator. "If you're not going to buy that
(product) from the store, you don't need the coupon."
Scholarships apd grants "go alongside what you want to
do," she explained.
Scholarship mapping, Thompson said, involves a
process of aligning a student's knowledge, skills.
and abilities with what is wanted or desired by a
corporation, nonprofit organization or other funding'
source. _.

ducting a brief Yo- guys have got to start

sonality test.
The exer- .:.-
cise, a guide to
finding'compatibility between a student's career ambi-
tions and their personality and work style, focused their
attention on how to target the best jobs for their skills.
Today's students should focus on acquiring skills that
lead to science, technology, engineering and math
degrees, said guest presenter Doug Adkins. Adkins, a
business owner and husband of State Rep. Janet Adkins,
said graduates with STEM degrees, as they are known,
will have the most competitive job skills and the greatest
earnings potential. College graduates with degrees in
the STEM field earn 84 percent more than those without
math and science diplomas, he said.
"You guys have got to start delivering skills that can
be used in the economy," Adkins said. "Employers want
people who already have the' skills to add value to the
company."
Companies also look for students who have been
involved. It is important to. participate in civic and
church activities and to build a network of relationships
with teachers and adults in the community, said the Rev.
Kalvin Thompson, pastor of IMPACT Your World and a
native of Nassau County. "You can't get something for
nothing," he said. "The. Bible tells, you.about sowing and
reaping."
Thompson said his high school teachers helped him
put together a portfolio when he applied for the
Rayonier scholarship. Adults who know a student's char-
acter and work ethic are more willing to write letters of
recommendation.
He encouraged students to build a resume of acconh-
plishments and to keep a.file or binder of all certificates,
honors and awards received in school, as well as student
projects and creations. Compiling the evidence of a stu-
dent's accomplishments can play an important step in
' demonstrating their qualifications to receive certain
scholarships..
College funding sources include local businesses and
national corporations, Eron Thompson said, explaining
that for-profit and nonprofit organizations offer area-spe-
cific scholarships, specialty scholarships and skills-
based, scholarships.
SStudents also have the.option of applying for govern-
ment programs that offer need-based and merit-based
financial aid. Securing loans should be attempted when
all other efforts fail, she said.
-. Regardless of which funding path you follow,
"You still have to produce," she said. "It's not free
Money.
Students attending college for the first time
need not only money, but several other essentialcompo-
.nents for.remaining in college, she said. A college fresh-
man should have a support system:of people to guide
and encourage them, boundaries and expectations of
what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior while,
away at school, time management skills, a personal com-
: itment to learning and social skills for interactingwith
others.
SPractical skills, such as money.management and
budgeting, parents should begin teaching their children
before they leave for college, Kalvin Thompson said.
STeach them now to discipline themselves to live without
Snon-essentials such as television and expensive clothes,.
he said.

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH. FLORIDA


Art-fashion fundraiser celebrates

Life & Designs ofJosephine Baker


TONY MCADOO
FortheNews-Leader.
7___T his year is the 450th anniversary of
| the arrival of Jean Ribault, repre-
senting the French government
when he explored the beauty of the
Isle de Mai (Amelia Island) and the present-
day St. Marys River and Cumberland Sound
of Georgia.
In honor of the anniversary, during Bastille
Week, The Life and Designs of Josephine
Baker by artist Jose Garcia will be shown in
Fernandina Beach. This art-fashion show and
fundraiser reception will be held on Thursday-
from 5 until 8 p.m: at Buy-Gones Ladies
Resale Boutique, 1014 S. Seventh St.
Josephine Baker was at one time in her
career the wealthiest black woman in the
world. She could also be regarded as the first
fei itainentm-superstar" ofthe-20th century
During World War II, she served as a'Red
Cross nurse and participated in the French
Resistance as an underground courier. She
was the First American woman to be honored
by the French government when she was
buried in France with official state military
honors in 1975.
Born in 1906 in St Louis, Mo., of humble
beginnings she would become a beacon for
many as a humanitarian, civil rights advocate
as well as her tremendous ability to entertain.
Though she had no children, she adopted 12
children from around the world that she
called "her rainbow tribe."


In 1963 Josephine was one of three
women with Rosa Parks and Daisy Bates
(Little Rock Nine) to address the throngs at
the Lincoln Memorial at the request of Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Dressed in her World
War II uniform she stated, "You are on the eve
of a complete victory. You can't go wrong. The
world is behind you."
Her life was a documented journey of her
spirit to help change public opinion, whether
in France or in her native country. Josephine's,
trademark anthem was "J'ai Duex Amors" ("I
Have Two Loves"), which she sang for both
her adopted France and her native United
States.
Growing up as a young boy in Fajardo,
Puerto Rico, Jose Garcia would hear her
music and the stories of.his grandfather and
uncles about Josephine's performances they
had attended in San Juan and in Havana,
Cuba.
In his life, Jose Garcia witnessed her per-
formances twice, once in Monaco at a Red
Cross benefit sponsored by Princess Grace
and then in Paris at Bobino's -Josephine
Baker's comeback performance and what
would become her final shbw. She died that
night after the completion of her show.
In his collection of original paintings
Garcia has captured her essence and costume
designs spanning 50 years of entertaining her
public.
Thursday's reception will include a silent
auction as an independent fundraiser to sup-
port Communities In Schools of Nassau

"Josephine Flamingo" by local artist
Jose Garcia.

County. Additional original paintings and art
items by Rhonda Bristol, Marlene Duetcher,

Country


music front


and Centre


tonight
Forthe News-Leader
Expect appreciative yelps from girls when
Stephen'Combs takes the stage at pounds on
Centre from 6-8 p.m. tonight in downtown
Fernandina. They can't help themselves
when the good-looking, deep-voiced,Florida
cowboy takes the stage. "A long, tall drink of
water," as country girls used to say.
Stephen grew up in a large family of
singers and musicians. On Saturday night, he
would listen to his daddy play Swinging
Doors at the local senior citizen barn dance;
and Sunday he
would soak in
the sweet har-
monies of
good old
Southern
Gospel music
at church.
Stephen's first
public per-
formance was
at 5 yuars old
when his dad
led his morti- SUBMIrTED
fled son to the Stephen Combs
front of the
church congre-
gation to sing "He's Still Working On Me."
Even with the microphone stand lowered as
much as possible, it was still too high for
Stephen, so his daddy held him up during his
first show. The music seed was planted. '
Stephen started songwriting at age 18 and
in 2004 recorded his first album after opening
for country artist Andy Griggs at a
Jacksonville music festival. He humbly calls
his first album an "elementary effort that got
me moving in the right direction." Stephen's
second album was followed by his first music
video. Stephen is back in the studio currently
recording his third album named after his lat-
est rock-a-billy original, Mud Pit Part.
Stephen is a down-to-earth guy vho feels
blessed for the opportunity of opening for
many great country acts including A-list
artists Trace Adkins, the Oak Ridge Boys,
Andy Griggs, Lone Star, Jason Aldean,
Montgomery Gentry, Te-ri Clark, and Chris
Young. It is likely Stephen will get some new
fans tonight.

Association and 2012 SOC Chair Madeline

month of July. Her latest series is a col-
lection of her representational art includ-
ing her classical still life paintings and fig-
urative work. While Batchelor enjoys

Batchelor are also on display along with

had a corporate career traveling interna-

in various art workshops and classes and
developed a self-study process that has
enhanced her current body of work. Oil is

continues to study and explore both tradi-
tional and contemporary art forms and


enjoys learning new ways to paint and
express her creativity.
