'No alternative



to higher taxes


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
When Joe Gerrity was a city com-
missioner, he adamantly opposed high-
er tax rates and advocated for spending
cuts. But now, as city manager, he is in
the uncomfortable position of sup-
porting higher taxes and fees and tap-
ping city reserves while still reducing
spending.
Previous commitments by city com-
missioners have'left him no choice,
Gerrity said Monday. The'city faces a
two-year budget crisis that cannot be
solved by spending cuts alone, he said.
"The obligations we have for the
next two years... I can't cut to absorb
that," Gerrity said in an interview.
Gerrity ended his term as a com-
missioner in spring 2008, before the
Great Recession began, with the city
finances in relatively good shape.
Reserves, for example, were well above
today's levels in those years.
But a poor economy and declining
property values have led to less income
for city government, which responded
by draining reserves to make up for
spending shortfalls.


"Revenues came
up $438,000 short"
last year, and the city
tapped reserves,
Gerrity said. This
year, another
$85,000 will be used
from the reserve
fund. Going forward
Gerrity into the new fiscal
year Oct. 1, city
reserves will be at 20
percent of annual spending.
"I'd like to be 25 percent. We're a
coastal community. We're susceptible
to hurricanes," Gerrity said.
Taking over as city manager after
the budgeting process had begun this
spring, Gerrity said he had limited
choices for the new budget. Staff will
be cut, by 10 or 11 positions, take-home
cars and city cell phones are being
taken away from some employees and
other trims are or will be made.
"We're just chipping away at it,"
Gerrity said. "Department heads have
been very cooperative this budget
cycle."

H.EATH ER A. PERRY
News Leader
After losing his mother Jodi suddenly just days before
it began, Fernandina Beach teenager Justin Arnold is
thriving in the Northeast Florida Community Action
A-',.-" 's summer Data Busters program.
i 1t. multi-faceted six-week program for 14- to 16-year-

skills and computer usage at the Betty P Cook Nassau
Center of FSCJ in Yuilee, and volunteer at a local nonprof-
it.
NFCAA Family and Community Services Manager
*Lisa Mohn said, "I nominated Justin based on the fact
that, in spite of a major tragedy, he decided to proceed with.
his enrollment in the Data Buster program to which he
applied before his mother passed away. He has a very
strong faith and positive attitude."
In the program, since it began June 18, Mohn said
Arnold is "an enthusiastic student who gladly participates
in the computer classes, workshops and group activities."

The city commission will meet at 505p.m.
Thursday at City Hall to set the tentative
property tax rate for2012-13.


CITY Continued from 1A
But the limiting factor is
the commitments made by
previous commissions. "All
these commitments were not
made by this sitting commis-
sion," but they must be
addressed nevertheless,
Gerrity said.
The city is committed to
spend in 2012-14:
$500,000 for beach
renourishment.
$500,000 for an animal
shelter.
$541,000 to increase the
employee pension contribu-
tion this year, an undeter-
mined increase next year.
$152,000 each year for
interest and principal for the
Forward Fernandina program.
$180,000 to dredge the
Amelia River for the city mari-
na.
$66,000 as the last of
three payments for a new
Council on Aging facility.
$1.5 million or so for the
McGill Aviation lawsuit.
The city has set aside
$1.376 million for the lawsuit,
but still must pay additional
attorney fees and interest costs
that could tally another
$100,000 to $200,000 after a
dubious decision a year ago
to appeal the court verdict.
"I see no other alternative"
than to increase taxes and fran-
chise fees to pay for these var-
ious commitments, Gerrity
said.
The city agreed five years

commission "was not willing to
go forward" with the project.
Commissioner Charles
Corbett asked at a July 17
meeting that the- city "give
back" the money borrowed for
the project in order to save on
interest payments.
Commissioners approved
a $1.9 million loan for the first
phase of the Forward
Fernandina strategic plan last
November, which included
$750,000 for the opening of
Alachua Street and improve-
ments to the crossings at-
Centre and Ash streets. But
the project has been stalled by
indecision and power strug-
gles among commissioners.
Those may not be resolved
until after the November elec-
tion when two commission
seats are determined.
According to Gerrity's let-
ter, the city has already fund-
ed engineering design for the


ago to a 50-year beach renour-
ishment project that is fund-
ed primarily by the federal gov-
ernment and includes state
and county contributions.
Even though the city agreed to
construction at five-year inter-
vals, it has not set aside any
money for its share of those
costs until now.
Other commitments, for a
new animal shelter, Council
on Aging and other city and
nonprofit projects, may be wor-
thy individually but collective-
ly the city cannot afford them,
Gerrity said.
'This stuff's got to stop at
some point" if the city is to
hold taxes down, maintain ade-
quate reserves and sufficient-
ly fund city services such as
police and fire, streets, recre-
ation and others.
The current commission,
and the new one that will take
office in December, face diffi-
cult choices.
'These two years are going
to be tough," and there are no
easy answers, Gerrity said.
Given the uncertainty of
the economy over the next two
years, and the potential for
unanticipated disasters or
crises, the city must budget
more conservatively going for-
ward and become more adept
at saying no to constituents,
he said.
The city commission is

Gerrity said the FDOT per-

months. He noted the
Forward Fernandina money
would still be available if com-
missioners gave the go-ahead
for the project.
Phase I of Forward Fernan-
dina was to include $600,000

'Sm Bd.


COUNTY
Continued from IA
four years, keeping the taxes
low and keeping the services as
best as we can possibly keep
them," said Boatright, who
added that he wanted Nassau to
grow so that residents' children
and grandchildren can continue
living and working in the coun-
ty. "... I just want to keep it
where it is right now ... where
people can live here, work here
and play here, and I think we've
accomplished a big portion of
that the past four years."
Boatright said the county
has made "great strides" in
improving its business friend-
liness, but the permitting
process is still too restrictive.
"We're not there yet," Boatright
said.
What are his top two priori-
ties if elected?
"My top two priorities will
continue to be what they have
been for the last four years to
keep the ad valorem tax where
it is right now like we ought
to do, like we've cut to do and
then also continue to work on
economic development" with
state and local agencies, and
streamlining the permitting
process, Boatright said.
* *
Boatright's challenger,
Overstreet, said his candidacy
was inspired by a speech Clerk
of Court John Crawford gave
on the Declaration of
Independence.
A retired veteran of the
Florida Air National Guard,
Overstreet touted his service
to the community as a Mason,
on the boards of directors for
the Westside Optimist Club and
the Greater Nassau County
Chamber of Commerce and as
a member and current presi-
dent of the Callahan Lions Club.
With local governments fac-
ing a bleak economic picture
and some cities going bank-
rupt, Overstreet said Nassau
could be next if it continues
drawing down on its reserves
and one cent sales tax, which
fund the county's capital
improvements. "It's not a cam-
paign about today and tomor-
row," he said. "... It's about the
future."
The budget needs to be the
county's priority, Overstreet
said, but the permitting process
is a big problem area. Having
information on permits avail-
able to residents and business
owners ahead of time would cut
down on the process, he said.
The process needs more trans-
parency and the county needs
to eliminate the practice of peo-
ple using "permit brokers,"
Overstreet said.
Top two priorities?
"My first aim is to work on
the budget," said Overstreet,
who cited declining property
values in the county during the
last four years and a recent


budget shortfall of more than
$8 million. "The budget is the
most important thing that
Nassau County can consider
right now. It has to be fixed....
My second opportunity would
be jobs and the economy. Keep
the atmosphere conducive to
small industry and small jobs
and small businesses and make
the government able to work
with these businesses to make
it enjoyable to be here."
* *
Edwards, who said he's
resided in the county for 39
years, told voters he is running
because he believes he can do
a better job than his predeces-
sor, Johnson.
Having served as an auxil-
iary member of the Florida
Highway Patrol, Edwards said
he would bring that same com-
mitment to public service,
along with the business sense
that has helped him own and
operate his business, RPM
Lumber, in Nassau for nearly
40 years.
He aims to keep the coun-
ty's debt load low while bring-
ing a conservative voice to the
table, Edwards said.
To help the county save and
cut costs, Edwards said he
would evaluate the need for
vehicles in individual depart-
ments and offices. Agood cost
saving measure would be to
stop buying new vehicles and
develop a more frequent and


thorough maintenance plan,
Edwards said.
The permitting process, he
said, should be much simpler. If
the current staff wants to con-
tinue making the process
drawn out and difficult, they
should be replaced with a busi-
ness friendly staff that seeks to
streamline the process,
Edwards said.
A novel idea, he said, would
be to ask the residents what
they want the board to spend
their tax dollars on.
Priorities?
Edwards said he supports
the Nassau Tomorrow plan, as
developed by the Economic
Development Board, which
aims to create 3,800 jobs over
the next five years. "If elected,
I plan to support that and try to
push that."
His second priority is to
"work to lower our threshold
of debt," Edwards said. "I plan
to offer us several opportuni-
ties, as a businessman, on how
to cut debt and hopefully I'll get
the opportunity to do so."

While he has not yet served
the public by holding office,
Stoots said he has served as an
ordained minister for 20 years.
In the same span, he has over-
seen Amelia Wealth
Management and other small
business ventures, he told the
audience.
As a small business owner


and a minister, he would con-
tribute a blend of fiscal respon-
sibility, family values and new
ideas, Stoots said.
Stools said the board needs
to consider new ideas. One
problem area, he said, is the
gap between the great number
of manufacturing jobs and the
lack of skilled laborers to fill
those roles. To remedy this,
Stoots said he would work with
Nassau County schools and
nearby colleges, such as Florida
State College at Jacksonville,
to develop a steady stream of
skilled, qualified labor.
The Port of Fernandina
Beach has the potential to gen-
erate a lot of business, Stoots
added.
Priorities?
Stoots said his first priority
is the implementation of the
Better Nassau Plan, echoing a
proposal championed initially
by State Rep. Janet Adkins. The
plan, he said, would offer incen-
tives for small businesses to
add one employee at a time.
With 1,700 businesses in the
county, and offering incentives
to add one job per company,
the plan could generate
upwards of 1,000 newjobs over
the next 12 months.
'The second thing is to go
line by line through our budg-
et and see if we can find and
eliminate any wasteful spend-
ing habits," Stoots said.

Houses selling better,


prices have stabilized
-.--* *


Most aspects of the housing
markets around Amelia Island
and Yulee are improving, except
for one obstinate thing.
The inventory of houses has
declined significantly here, units
are selling much faster and qual-
ified buyers are looking. Yet
prices have stubbornly refused
to rise.
"Something eventually has
got to give," says John Holbrook
of Prudential Chaplin Williams
Realty. "When you cut the inven-
tory back to a third (of what is
was), you'd think prices would
rise."
Still, prospective buyers are
rebuking higher prices in the
aftermath of a six-year housing
downturn. But prices have at
least stabilized in much of
Nassau County.
Holbrook believes prices will
move higher heading into the
spring of 2013. He follows prices
and statistics closer than most in
his position as sales manag-
er/agent for Prudential Chaplin
Williams Realty. Holbrook also
reports statistics to a Morgan
Stanley housing index and com-
piles them for several banks.
While bankers are not com-
pletely Willing to lend, and
appraisals still are a struggle,
the supply-demand equation has
returned to a healthier level
here. The supply is limited, the
demand is returning as retirees
are able to sell properties in
other places and relocate here.


STEVE'S
MARKET
PLACE

Steve Nicklas


Nassau
County avoid-
ed much of
the carnage
tied to fore-
closures and
short sales -
as well as
ubiquitous
new housing
develop-
ments. This
has helped
the area
return to a
state of nor-
ralcy, of


equilibrium.
The most recent figures as
compiled by the Amelia Island-
Nassau County Association of
Realtors are startling in their
comparisons. For instance:
The inventory of single-
family homes has fallen from
1,700 in April 2011 to 528 this
year. So much so that "it's almost
gotten difficult to find homes
for people," Holbrook says.
For condominiums, the
inventory has declined from a
peak of 469 in 2010 down to 202
today.
The time it takes to sell a
single-family home has dropped
significantly from an average
of 23 months last year to a little
over eight months this year. And
properties are selling at much
closer to their listing prices.
Holbrook is seeing most
properties move within three or


four months if they are priced
realistically. For a market to be
truly healthy, a six-month inven-
tory of homes is considered to
be ideal.
Newer, lower-price houses
are moving quickly in Yulee. It
is cheaper for a family, for
instance, to buy a house for
$150,000 (and pay a low-inter-
est mortgage) than it is to rent.
On Amelia Island, newer
homes with more than 2,000
square feet are moving briskly in
the $300,000-$350,000 range.
And the high-end market has
shaken off some of its accumu-
lated rust.
"You ian drive up and down
South Fletcher and barely see a
for-sale sign," Holbrook says.
'The higher end was stagnant
for two years, but now we're
making some progress."
Premier homes at Amelia
Island Plantation and condos at
Carlton Dunes are "selling at a
steady clip," Holbrook says. So
far this year, 16 million-dollar
properties have sold compared
to only five at this time last year.
In all, Nassau County has
"weathered the storm better,"
Holbrook says. "If you want that
true bargain, you're not going to
find it here ... there are very few
fire sales.in Nassau County."

Tourism rises on island


Despite two tropical storms and a sluggish
economy, tourism on Amelia Island improved
during the second quarter of 2012.
According to figures released by the Amelia
Island Tourist Development Council, nearly
123,000 overnight guests visited in April, May
and June, which is a 2.1 percent increase over
the same period last year. The visitor impact on
the local economy reached more than $103
million, a 4.5 percent increase from 2011.
"We're not where we'd like to be yet, but
we've seen a pattern of improvement over the
past year and a half," said Gil Langley, manag-
ing director of the AITDC. "Even with the slow-
ing economy, Amelia Island continues to gain
market share, with 47 percent of our guests in
the period being first-time visitors."
Conducted by Research Data Services, Inc.,
the study shows that Atlanta is the number
one source of overnight guests to Amelia, fol-
lowed by Orlando and Jacksonville. The aver-
age length of stay was 4.7 days, with an average


spending per travel party of $1,729.
"Hotels, restaurants and other tourism relat-
ed businesses on island generate 36 percent of
taxable sales in Nassau County and provide
jobs for 23 percent of the workforce," Langley
said. "Tourism sales increased 5.9 percent last
year, compared to 4.6 percent for all retail in the
county. The more tourists we bring in for
overnight visits, the better the environment
for local businesses and the job market."
Since January, the hotel industry has
added 300 permanent jobs on island. The
Omni Amelia Island Plantation project has
resulted in an additional 200 construction jobs
during the same timeframe, with more expect-
ed for fall. Restaurants have also expanded
their hiring to handle the additional customer
base.
Langley said he anticipates a slower growth
in the tourism industry during the second half
of 2012, due to early school openings and con-
tinued economic weakness.

Recruiting future leaders


One of the toughest
achievements in sports is to
have a career batting average
of over .300. My sense is that
most companies would also
love to have a batting average
of .300 in recruiting managers
and executives.
In fact, some CEOs become
so frustrated about their track
records going to the outside
to recruit managers and exec-
utives that they resort to pro-
moting executives from within
even when they know the indi-
viduals are less than qualified
for the job. The excuse is, "At
least you know what you are
getting."
But even when the pro-
moted individual is a success-
ful manager, it doesn't mean
he or she will become an effec-
tive leader. Many "Number
Twos" find it very different
being "Number One," and
some of the biggest failures
during the 2008 financial melt-
down were in that category.
The reasons the process is
so difficult are complex. First of
all, while a candidate may be
very effective in one environ-
ment, it does not necessarily
follow that they will achieve
success in a very different envi-
ronment. Discovering this in
a one- or even two-hour inter-
view is tough. In addition, the
interviewer has to determine if
the candidate possesses a num-
ber of traits and many of them
are contradictory.
For example, the best man-
agers usually need to be in con-
trol and therefore find it diffi-
cult to give their people the
latitude they may need to
,develop. Similarly, since
results-oriented people have a
high sense of urgency, they
don't always take the time to
draw out or listen to others'
viewpoints or concerns. Finally,
some executives who strive
hard to be good team players
seem to shy away f-om.making
decisions. This may be
because they are interested in
everyone being in agreement
or because they just have trou-
ble making decisions.
A favorite methodology we
used was developed by psy-
chologist, John Drake, the co-
founder of Drake Beam, and
labeled the hypothesis method
of interviewing. The method
had the interviewer, rather
: iarncnrentraring ,ini the- can-
didBte ','x, ci_ vt urd-. vii,_ d- d "
ferefit hypotheses and meas-
ure the answers against those
hypotheses. For example, the


-
:1"


hypothesis
Smay be that
Sthe candi-
di late is con-
Sceptual and a
Good leader.
You then ask
.S.-' the candi-
date how he
or she han-
COACH'S died a partic-
CORNER ular situa-
tion. What
you are inter-
Howard ested in is
Pines not what the
candidate


says he or she accomplished,
but how the candidate's actions
measure up against the hypoth-
esis that he or she is concep-
tual and a good leader.
Once, at BeamPines, the
CEO of one of our clients, a
decisive and results-oriented
executive, asked one of our top
search people to help recruit a.
VP of sales. The CEO was
impressed with a candidate we
presented, who possessed
excellent experience in a sim-
ilar role. Nervous about mak-
ing the wrong decision, he
asked our search executive to
have me interview the candi-
date as well.
During the interview I


began to hypothesize that the
candidate was lacking in
integrity. I reported this back to
the CEO and suggested we do
an in-depth assessment utiliz-
ing psychological question-
naires. However, since the can-
didate's references checked
out OK, and he was under pres-
sure from the board to fill the
position, the CEO decided to
hire the candidate immediate-
ly. About a year later the CEO
called to advise me that he was
terminating the VP over
integrity issues. He advised
that he was impressed that I
was the only one who recog-
nized the problem. However,
he added, before my head
swelled too much, that he want-
ed me to know how disap-
pointed he was that I hadn't
fought harder to discourage
him from going ahead with the
hire.
Sometimes, you just can't
win! But in the long run I knew
we were better off with the
CEO believing we had a great
skill, evaluating candidates,
rather than worrying about
whether I could deter him once
he made a decision.

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/DAVE LTIi/FERNANDINA BEACI



Read label care


before taking medication


I could not let Steve
Nicklas' (July 25) col-
umn, "Time for city to
take its medicine," pass
without a response. As stated
by Daniel Patrick Moynihan,
"Everyone is entitled to his
own opinion, but not his own
facts." Please bear with me
while I do my best impression
of Sgt. Joe Friday of Dragnet
and provide 'just the facts"
with regard to the city budget
process and current budget
proposal.
CLAIM: "It is a.past
marred by deficit spending,
impractical spending and a


gross miscalculation on how
much property values would
decline." FACT: Deficit
spending is prohibited under
Florida law and the city has
always maintained a balanced
budget in full compliance with
state law. "Impractical spend-
ing" is a subjective opinion
and not everyone is going to
agree with all the hundreds of
major expenditures made by
the city each year. As to prop-
erty value calculations, those
are set by the Nassau County
Tax Appraiser's Office with
no city staff involvement. In
fact, when setting the millage


rate for the budget, the city is
prohibited from discounting
the overall taxable valuation
amount supplied by the coun-
ty by more than 5 percent.
CLAIM: "... legal decisions
(airport, impact fees) could
easily go against the city with
potential verdicts costing mil-
lions of dollars." FACT: Yes, -
there currently are two major
lawsuits against the city. In
the McGill litigation, the city
has already set aside almost
$1.4 million in the event of a
complete judgment against
the city. In'the impac' fee
case, that litigation is at such
an early stage the need to
establish a reserve has not
been established. It would be
informative to understand the
legal basis from which Mr.
Nicklas is basing his conclu-
sion that the city could easily
lose both cases.
CLAIM: "Miniscule cost-
cutting measures..." FACT:
The first two internal reviews
of the city budget came up
with a total of $1 million in
reduced expenditures includ-
ing a personnel reduction of
10 full-time and two part-time
positions. I doubt Mr. Nicklas
would be willing to character-
ize to those city employees
that will no longer have jobs
as of Oct. 1 that heviews the
budget cuts already identified
as "miniscule"; nor do I think
the average citizen would con-
sider a million dollars in the
same way.
CLAIM: "Eliminate the
full-time status of the city
attorney ... potential annual
savings: $50,000." FACT: The


city used
contracted
legal assis-
tance up until : C
2002 when .
the current
full-time posi-
tion was cre-
ated. A check Lott
of the city
budget for
the period 1997-2002 shows
the actual expenditure level to
be virtually the same as today.
When you take into consider-
ation the value of 1997-2002
dollars to today's dollars, the
city attorney's office is actual-
ly costing less now than in
those years.
CLAIM: "Reduce the use
of outside planning and engi-
neering firms for projects...
potential one-time savings:
$200,000," QUESTION: Mr.
Nicklas provides no basis for
justifying the $200,000 sav-
ings figure cited or why it
would only be a one-time sav-
ings. I'm sure Mr. Nicklas is
well aware that there are dif-
ferent fields of engineering
(civil, structural, environmen-
tal, electrical, mechanical,
etc.) and to find a single indi-
vidual certified in all those
areas commonly needed in
projects for the city would be
next to impossible.
CLAIM: "The city current-
ly owns property valued at
over $60 million or more. So
why not sell some of it?
FACT: Most financial advi-
sors warn against selling off
property in one-time gains to
meeting recurring financial

appears to hold out Nassau
County as the gold standard
for a well-managed municipal-
ity fiscally while the head-
line/story in the same isspe
of the News-Leader tells of the
extreme financial issues
being faced by the county.
Reserves of 15 percent or less
(compared to the city's 25
percent projected 20 per-
cent in new budget), revenue
shortfall of $7 million, no
funding of capital improve-
ment projects and use of one-
time revenue streams to help
cover and pay ongoing operat-
ing expenses contrary to
good government financial
principles. Additionally,
absolutely no mention of the
county's $27-plus million
unfunded liability associated
with its OPEB (Other Post-
Employment Benefits) pro-
gram where their actuary rec-
ommended earlier this year
they begin creating a reserve
with a $2 million contribution
annually for the next 12-15
years. Not to wish ill on the
issues confronting the county
commission as they impact all
of us as well, but to ignore the
similarities in challenges fac-
ing both governments is
disingenuous at best and
politically biased to the point
of failing any standard of
objectivity.
The city is facing an
extremely difficult task with
this year's budget and sug-
gestions for addressing those
difficulties are welcomed by
City Manager Joe Gerrity and
the entire commission.
However, to misstate the facts
or over-exaggerate the finan-
cial impact of a particular
course of action does nothing
to contribute to finding a
workable solution.

SConundrum of all condundrums


Reading the News-Leader on Friday I was
reminded that it was time for my annual visit
to the conundrum of all conundrums, that is if
you are or have been a city commissioner.
There they were again, right there on the front
page, headlines proclaiming the county com-
mission's decision to hold the line on taxes
while city commissioners wallow in the angst
surrounding budget cuts and program elimina-
tion.
The inference, if the headlines are to be
taken at face value, is that county commission-
ers are super-stewards of the public's money
and city commissioners are, well, the
opposite.
The conundrum? Why are city taxpayers so
Swilling to write a check to the county and
demand so little in the way of services, a
check, by the way, for an amount greater than
the one they write to the city? Why do city tax-
payers, and voters, hold the county commis-
sion accountable for so little and the city com-
mission for so much?
Consider:
Twenty-eight cents out of every property
tax dollar collected and spent by the county
commission comes from city taxpayers.
There is an interlocal agreement in place
that requires city police officers to answer rou-
tine calls in the unincorporated area (non-city)
of the island, but the city is not reimbursed.
There is an interlocal agreement that
requires city fire/rescue personnel to answer
calls in the unincorporated area, but again, the
City is not reimbursed.


SThe city has three
oceanfront parks and 40 pub-
lic beach accesses, the coun-
ty has three public beach
accesses.
The city spends approxi-
mately $2 million annually on
recreation, the county spends
g $0.
DEBATE So, as I've spoken about,
written about, debated about,
AND made motions at the commis-
TACKLE sion table about, the city's
budget whatever the final
number turns out to be -
Ron Sapp won't be for a city population
of 12,500, it will be for an
island population of roughly 20,000!
Isn't it time that city taxpayers start asking
county commissioners what they get for that
check? If dollars go for services, what services
do city residents get from the county?
Isn't it time that city commissioners start
asking county commissioners to help pay for
those city services used by non-city residents?
Isn't it time that city voters remind county
commissioners and county commission candi-
dates that we are county residents, too?
It's almost painful to watch city commission
meetings these days, especially the budget
workshops. I know, some of the pain has been
self-inflicted -the commission, in 2011, got a
$2 million loan for the first phase of Forward
Fernandina and the annual payment for that
loan is $152,000. The commission, for the past


three years, has practiced deficit spending to
the tune of over $300,000 annually, closing that
gap by injecting a total of $1.29 million from
reserves. The commission gave $450,000 from
the general fund to the CRA as "seed money,"
now there's only $143,000 left and the CRA is
no better off- but the struggle is still painful
to watch, especially when the county commis-
sion is sitting on a pile of cash.
That pile of cash is about $50 million, at
least that's the number I have; $50 million in
reserves/cash-carry-forward/unspent rev-
enue, whatever. $50 million. Understanding
that 28 percent of that $50 million came from
Fernandina Beach taxpayers ($14 million)
wouldn't returning a portion of the $14 million
be the right thing to do?
But that's the conundrum. Historically,
Fernandina Beach taxpayers have written that
larger check to the county and have said noth-
ing and demanded little. Historically, the city
commission has been content to endure the
annual budget battles and say nothing to the
county commission. Historically, Fernandina
Beach voters have cast their ballots for county
commission incumbents and have said nothing
about writing the larger check and how little
they get in return. Maybe it's time to change
things, to say, "We're mad as heck and we're
not going to take it anymore!" not:just to city
commissioners, but to county commissioners,
too.
There are ways to correct these inequities
- more on that next time.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


The problem
with nepotism
The dictionary defines Nepotism
as "Noun patronage bestowed or
favoritism shown on the basis of fam-
ily relationship, as in business and pol-
itics" (dictionary.reference.com/
browse/politics).
Business is answerable to a differ-
ent set of rules from what politicians
are answerable to. I have been in busi-
ness and I once upon a time managed
a unit of a Fortune 500 company that
had been acquired through a buyout.
Approximately 20 percent of the 140
employees were related by blood or
marriage. Why did we buy them out
and add them to the company?
Because they had a good base of cus-,
tomers and they were going in the red
on a consistent basis.'My personal
belief is that the number of related
individuals was a hindrance to the effi-
cient operation of that unit. The big,
bad company that I worked for had a
nepotism policy in place that was sim-
ilar to the policy that the late. (County
Coordinator) Ed Sealover;had imple-
mented with Nassau County.
I can't understand why the com-
missioners decided to change that pol-
icy ("County relaxes nepotism limits,"
July 27). 1 think that Commissioner
Walter Boatright needs to carry his
line of thought, expressed as, "It
seems to me that we're limiting the
possibility of in-county workers to have
these jobs," out a couple of more
degrees. The former policy didn't in
any way limit the ability of "in-county"
workers from being employedby the
county. What Mr. Boatright voted for
was the exact opposite. Mr. Boatright
voted for the enshrinement of a few
families to enjoy permanent employ-
ment with the county at the expense of
every other taxpayer in the county.
Thank goodness for Commissioner
Steve Kelley. In common parlance,
"He gets it!"
Mr. Kelley even had enough of a
conscience to resign from the Nassau
County Canvassing Board because he
had a couple of relatives running for
public office this year. That is a lot
more conscience than Commissioner
Stacy Johnson has shown.
Nepotism is like cancer. It starts
as a very small deviation and then
grows from there. Bob recommends
his brother-in-law, Joe, for a position in
another department. Because it is eas-
ier to deal with the known rather than
the unknown Bob's recommendation
carries more weight than a recom-
mendation from someone outside the
organization. Joe gets hired and does
a good job. Bob gets a plus and Joe
now is in the organization. Enter the
niece. She needs a job and she now
has two advocates in the organization
in the persons of Bob and Joe. She
gets hired but unlike the uncles she is
not exactly an outstanding employee.
The odds are that she will continue
in her job because her supervisor will
always have Bob and Joe in the back
of their mind when considering disci-
plinary action or when writing an eval-
uation. I won't waste time on the in-
laws that will enter the picture. The
end result is that the efficiency of the
organization, in this case Nassau
County government, will suffer over a
period of time.
Think not? The article concerning
the commission vote on nepotism was
on page one of the July 27 News-
Leader. On page there was an article
discussing the distortion of the pur-
chasing/contracting process at the
county. I don't know if this undermin-
ing of the purchasing policy is a result
of nepotism or just plain old-fashioned
laziness. It could be a result of both


maladies. At any rate it begs the ques-
tion of who's minding the store.
Your store; my store; our store. Are
you being served?

Beach parking
Re: "Paid parking at beach ?" on
July 25.
We purchased a house here sever-
al years ago with the concept of having
friends and family come see us and
also use our home during our
absences. This has worked out well.
Under the beach permit plan, our vis-
itors would have to find where to get
a permit and then have to buy one.
This is not right
This would also go for rentals. How
are people going to get the permits?
The result would be a loss of rental
income by the many people who rent
out their homes. Then you have the
issue of all visitors coming to the island
for the first time, plan to go to the
beach and discover they can't find a
pladi j because they don't have
a perhT'. i11 the) come bick don't
think so.
Now how do you calculate the lost
revenue to the businesses in town?
This puts us to the worst-case sce-
nario over a $41,000 loss, plus poten-
tial business closings more lost (tax)
revenues. Almost certainly this would
happen with the beachside business-
es, since people would not buy a park-
ing permit just to go out to eat or play
Putt-Putt. The businesses cannot
afford the burden to "buy parking
spaces." And the city (us) paid for this
study! Crazy!
Why in this economy would, the
government put additional risks upon
the residents? This also goes to show
when government has an idea to ini-
tiate a program to bring in revenue, the
administrative costs are always high -
in this case 50 percent. Why not look
at cutting government costs to raise
the revenue? Do we really need five
commissioners for a town of 12,000?
That's one commissioner per 2,400
residentseThink about it. We can cover
the $250,000 if we eliminate two com-
missioners.
Finally we cannot keep risking
the health of our businesses. The city
needs do what it takes to ensure they
present an atmosphere where the busi-
ness community can thrive. Charging
"customers" parking fees just doesn't
fit with that concept.

Irony?
Over the last two weeks our home
has received approximately five robo
calls a day from local and state candi-
dates. Ignoring all other issues, the
candidates simply promise that they
will cut taxes and spending more than
their opponents will.
During the same two weeks,
Jacksonville and Nassau papers have
written about cuts in library hours,
cuts in Council on Aging's trans-
portation schedule, the potential cut of
Duval County corrections officers and
the potential loss of recreation facilities
at the MLK/Elm Street Center. In a
Friday letter to the editor, School
Board member Amanda Young coun-.
seled against spending on renovations
of a staff building "when we have inad-
equate science and technology facili-
ties in our schools." Not surprisingly,
U.S. Census Bureau data shows
Florida ranking 41st among the states
in total funding per student, 49th in the
amount that the state contributes per
student each year, and 44th in high

Questions for voters
Last month, I saw a blurb on the
local news about Florida legislators
only paying $30 a month for health
insurance. The more I though about it,
the more irritated I got. Since then I
have done a little research. The fol-
lowing are my opinions alone and the
facts presented are, to the best of my
knowledge, reasonably accurate.
It seems the elected officials in
Florida (including the governor, state
senators and state representatives]
are able to obtain health care insur-
ance for $30 a month that includes
their whole family. I pay almost 10
times that for just my spouse and
myself. Some legislators will say, "It's
only a part-time job."
I also did a little research on the
"part-time" pay for our lawmakers. I
only present the figures for the House
of Representatives and have reduced
them to simplify the calculations. It
seems a representative is paid $30,000
per year (actually a little more) and
$6,000 for expenses (actually more
than $7,000). They meet for 60 days a
year, starting in March. So, $36,000
divided by 60 days equals $600 a day.
If they put in a 10-hour clay (probably
not likely) then they are getting $60 an
hour or $1 per minute. Not bad for a
"part-time" job. Lots of folks don't
make that on a yearly basis.
I understand that the state sena-
tors voted to raise the cost of their
health insurance, but then voted to
increase their per diem. I don't have
the figures for this. I also understand
a similar resolution came before the
representatives and died for lack of a
vote.
I'm sure that these are honorable
people. I guess my questions to my
fellow voters are: Do our legislators
merit this much of a perk while the vot-
ers who put them there are having to
economize? Can we influence our leg-
islators to introduce a resolution to
pay more of their health care costs, or
would this be like asking someone to
cut their own throat? I won't use the
word "fair" because life's not fair. But
I would say, "Is this reasonable?"
Reminds me of the old country
song that kind of goes like this,
"Mamas, don't let your babies grow up
to be cowboys. Let 'em be doctors and
lawyers and such." Maybe we could
substitute Florida lawmakers for
"such."

Kudos
Re: "Washed up" (July 27).
Thanks should also be given to
Daran Rinebolt, my son, who lives and
works in Charlotte, N.C., currently,
but considers Fernandina Beach his
second home (hopefully, to soon be his
primary residence).
Daran walked the beach from
Sadler Road north for two nights pick-
ing up boat debris for 2-3 hours. He
hauled mattresses, large pieces of
wood, etc., from the surf and put above
the tide line so that it could easily be
collected by Nassau maintenance
personnel. Many people were walk-
ing past the debris rolling in the surf
and did not offer to assist him. He
loves Amelia Island and is willing to
help protect it and keep it safe for all
visitors.

Skate park
I have been thinking about the
skate park every time I ride by it.
Remember the public outcry, begging
for a place for the kids to skate. It was
supposed to be very safe. Always
supervised and every participant
required to wear a helmet and other
protective gear. Well, now there is no
supervision whatsoever, and many
kids skating without helmets or any
other protection. I have seen 6- or 7-
year-olds flying down ramps with no
helmets.
There is a major injury just around
the corner, and in turn a major lawsuit
against the city. Folks say, "Oh no,
that will never happen," but it sure
could some day. I have a friend who
lost a child to a skateboard accident
many years ago, way before the use of
helmets.
I would pose the question, "Is the
city adequately prepared and
insured to cover a multimillion-dollar
lawsuit."

QualityHealth
I wanted to take a moment and
extend my sincere gratitude to some
members of Quality Health.
First, Cynthia Addy, thank you for
your kindness and willingness to help
my father-in-law and me with getting
my mother-in-law, Ethelyn, admitted
into Quality. I know it was somewhat
taxing and the amount of patience and
understanding you gave us was amaz-
ing. You never lost your smile or com-
forting demeanor. (I cannot say I
would have done the same in your
shoes.)
Prescila Valdez, you were wonder-
ful and I thank you for all that you
tried to do for us on that first stressful
and crazy Friday afternoon. You real-
ly showed that you cared what was
going on with our family and the effort
you put into helping us is so greatly
appreciated. You were wonderful. I
apologize for not knowing your last
name, but Marcie, Ethelyn's nurse, if
it wasn't for your skills and take-charge
attitude, we would not have had the
.precious time with her that we were
given.
The extra time allowed the family
to be able to be with her and say our
goodbyes. (Granted, if we could have
had two more months, her son in
Afghanistan would have been able to
as well. I hate that for him and wish
things could have turned out differ-
ently.)
Thank you again to all of you as
well as anyone we had contact with at
Quality. You were all amazing!

Candidates for judge vie for votes

GARRETT PELICAN......
News- Leader


Seven candidates seeking
judgeships assembled in the
jurors' services room at the
Nassau County Judicial Annex
on July 24 to plead their cases
.before local voters.
SHosted by the Nassau
County Bar Association, the
News-Leader and Nassau County
Record, the forum gave candi-
dates, including two incum-
bents, opportunities to mingle
with voters and explain why
they are seeking election to the
Fourth Judicial Circuit.
Judge hopefuls from three
contested races touted their
qualifications and fielded ques-
tions from the audience. The
primary election is Aug. 14 and
the general election Nov. 6.
Vying for a seat in Group 29
are prosecutor Mark Borello
and practicing attorney A.
Wellington "Al" Barlow, both of
Jacksonville.
In Group 34, incumbent
Circuit Judge John Merrett
squares off against challenger
Suzanne Bass, a family and per-
sonal injury attorney in private
practice.
Rounding out the dais was
incumbent CircuitJudge Brian
Davis and his challengers,
Melina Buncome and Greg
Messore, both of whom work as
assistant public defenders under
Matt Shirk. Two other oppo-
nents, Donald Mairs and Gerald
Wilkerson, did not attend.
* *
Borello, a prosecutor and
director of circuit.courts under
State Attorney Angela Corey,
said he came to Jacksonville 25
years ago because then State
Attorney Ed Austin believed in
him. He has spent 14 of those
years as a director and has
become one of the top prose-
cutors in the state of Florida,
Borello told the audience.


GARRETT PELICAN/NEWS-LEA
Candidates for judge attending a forum at the Nassau County Judicial Annex in Yulee Tuesday included, from left, Melina Buncome, Brian Davis,
Greg Messore, A. Wellington Barlow, Mark Borello, Suzanne Bass and John Merrett.


Borello's most recent post
entailed supervising roughly 40
lawyers and thousands of cases,
he said.
, "Circuit judges hold a great
deal of power and responsibili-
ty in our system of justice,"
Borello said. "They can take
your house, your children and
your life in a criminal case. So
it's vitally important that you
put people in these positions
that have earned the trust and
the respect of people that know
the judicial system and know
these candidates the best. I'm
very proud of the reputation
that I've established and the
support that we've gotten."
He touted endorsements
from Jacksonville Sheriff John
Rutherford and local constitu-
tional officers, including Nassau


County's Clerk of Court John
Crawford and Tax Collector
John Drew.
Barlow, a former assistant
public defender and assistant
state attorney who practices pri-
vately in Florida and Georgia,
distinguished himself from the
rest by repeating, "Barlow,
Barlow, Barlow," whenever
addressed.
AJacksonville native, he was
born and raised in the city and
was the first of his family to
attend college. He has been
practicing law for 27 years.
Barlow made light of pointing
out that Buncome and.Messore,
who are running against Davis,
initially filed to run against him
and Borello, but the pair had
"run" them out of that race.


"I was blessed to draft a con-
stitutional amendment" that
appeared on the 2000 ballot ask-
ing voters if they wanted to
maintain their rights to elect cir-
cuit judges; Barlow said. That
amendment passed statewide.
"What I'm really saying, ladies
and gentlemen, is had that
amendment not passed, we
would not be here today
because you would not be able
to elect county circuit court
judges."
* *
An incumbent judge,
Merrett said he comes from a
family committed to public serv-
ice, with pastors, police officers
and firefighters in his blood.
"We have always, in my fam-
ily, thought that being a part of
the community and giving to


the community was important,"'
Merrett said. In addition to com-
munity service, Merrett said he
believes that voters want judges
to treat people with decency and
respect as he has done.
Prior to serving six years as
a circuit judge, Merrett said he
served the same length of time
as a prosecutor and roughly
twice that time in private prac-
tice.
Pointing out his endorse-
ments from the Nassau, Duval
and Clay chapters of the
Fraternal Order of Police,
Merrett said law enforcement
officers have asked voters to re-
elect him.
"These are the police offi-
cers who serve every day pro-
tecting our lives and properties
and who really have to worry


every day about what kind of
person is going to be sitting as
a judge," Merrett said. "They
looked at the reputation of the
candidates, they looked at their
standings in the community and
they have asked you to return
me to the seat."
* *
A former assistant state
attorney and assistant public
defender, Bass has spent 30 of
her 60 years practicing law in
various capacities. She came to
Jacksonville in 1980 to work as
an assistant state attorney under
Ed Austin and took from him
one notable notion, "Seek jus-
tice," a phrase he impressed on
her and other prosecutors, Bass
'said. Since then, she's worked in

POLITICS IN BRIEF


JUDGE Coninued from 8A
private practice, has been a
mediator for civil and family
court and has taught al Florida
Coastal School of Law as an
adjunct professor.
"I'T running for judge
because I'm passionate about
the quality and the integrity of
the justice system," Bass said.
Having met many people on
the campaign trail, she said, the
one quality individuals most
often said a judge should have
is "fairness," a trait to which her
balanced career lends itself.
"Being fair is not an attitude,"
she added. "It's something
that's acquired byworking hard
and serving people. One thing
that I will always remember
from my clients is that when I
walk out of the courthouse if
they think the judge has treated
them fairly, they're ready to
move on.

Davis, an incumbent, has
been tapped by President
Barack Obama to assume a fed-
eral judgeship, but that appoint-
ment is subject to the approval
of Congress. The Princeton
University graduate said he
planned to run for his current
seat, regardless of the outcome
of the federal judgeship, and
would continue to serve the

people if his appointment were
approved.
Because of the race ahead
of him, Davis said he lhas been
working out walking, running,
swimming and biking to
achieve his "fighting weight,"
to borrow a boxing term. He
made light of his effort with an
anecdote explaining why lie was
not wearing a jacket and why
he was favoring his right arm.
On a bike ride last Saturday, he
was thinking about the carm-
paign and rounded a corner too
quickly and fell on his arm,
which he could not lift past
shoulder height, Davis said.
"I have served you for 18
years," Davis said. "I am proud
of that service. I have brought
a balance to the bench that
includes experience, integrity,
impartiality and respectfulness,
and I hope to get your support
in continuing to do that."

Vying for Davis' seat,
Messore said the incumbent's
pending appointment factored
into his decision to run for
office, but he nonetheless aims
to win. Even so, he was candid
about his intention to serve twd
terms and then retire to explore
other pursuits.


"I' in it tlo win it," he said.
'Tin h t i li nglliil as anl alternate
uldidal e"lle."
Making ligltl of Davis'inljury,
Messoire r'.aid, "I'm glad l.i. Li
That I'v pill enough nerves and
ipresslre ton him that he was
not able to negotiate that turn
oni his, bike, so that means I
minus be doing something
right."
Messlre, a former journalist,
said he moved to Jacksonville in
1997. After spending more than
seven years as an assistant pub-
lic defender, he did a stint in
private practice before return-
ing to the office in 2008 at the
request of Shirk, Messore said.
ATufts University graduate
who has tried more than 150
cases likely more than any
other candidate, aside from
Borello, he noted Messore
said he has the education, expe-
rience and temperament need-
ed to be a judge.
"I've lived all over the coun-
try, I've met people from all
walks of life, I've done the
toughest work you can do as a
defense lawyer, or maybe any
lawyer, which is defending cap-
ital cases, and I believe I have
the qualifications to serve

ties," Messore said.
An attorney for 18 years,
Buncome told attendees she
has spent 14 of those working
for the Public Defender's Office
in Jacksonville. Most recently,
she has been working in the
office's homicide unit, defend-
ing criminals charged with cap-
ital crimes.
Outside of work, the assis-
tant public defender said she
sees great importance in com-
munity involvement, including
sitting on the board of directors
for the Girl Scouts of Gateway
Council, Inc., performing pro
bono work with Jacksonville
Area Legal Aid and volunteering
her time at the Sulzbacher
Center for the homeless.
The pending appointment of
Davis to a federal judgeship
influenced her decision to run
against him, Buncome said.
Still, this has not stopped detrac-
tors from criticizing her for
breaking the unspoken rule of
running against an incumbent,
Buncome said.
"I believe a judge should
have integrity, respect and fair-
ness, and that is what I will
bring to the bench," she said.

A motion to dismiss was
granted ill the case Theodore

Don't let uninvited visitors into your home


We have had reports lately
of people knocking on doors in
the Fernandina area selling
insurance for a nationally
known company. You should
not open the door for strangers
no matter who they are or what
they appear to be selling.
Last year another nationally
known home security compa-
ny allowed an independent con-
tractor to go door to door car-
rying their company warning
signs under his arm. If you were
to open the door and listen to
the sales pitch, before you knew
it you were locked into a three
year contract costing $40/
month with no chance of can-
celing it if you were unhappy
with the service. Advertise-
ments for this company still
appear in the local newspapers.
Recently flyers have been
left at homes and solicitors
,appearing at doors to tell you
that the Obama administration
is paying folks up to $1,000.
They tell you that because of
the extreme heat this summer
the government will help pay
utility bills. All you have to do is
Provide personal information,
such as your Social Security
number. Then you are given a
bank routing and checking
account number to give your
utility company when paying
your bill. These numbers are
fake and it may take days for
the utility company to reject
your payment. Meanwhile the
personal information you
have divulged is used to dip into
your bank account or steal your


LSeniors vs Crime


A Special Project of the Florida Attorney General


identity
After the severe storms a
few weeks ago, Seniors vs.
Crime fielded many complaints
of unlicensed roofing and tree
removal contractors going door
to door soliciting work. Often
the homeowners were told they
needed work done that was not
necessary. Once the work was
clone, the victim found that the
bill was much higher than quot-
ed or was done with inferior
products. It is important to note
that if the contractor does any
work at all and you have paid
money upfront, it is very diffi-
cult to make a case against the
contractor.
If you do open the door to
someone and allow him in your
home, be aware that one of the
most popular scams perpetrated
over the last 20-30 years is dis-
traction and theft. Someone will
come to your door, perhaps in
some. ype of uniform, pretend-
ing to be someone they are not.
Law enforcement officers or
utility workers are common dis-
guises. While you are distract-
ed, the crook or his accomplice
will ransack your home, grab-
bing cash and other valuables.


Don't fall for


The Camden County, Ga.,
Sheriff's Office and the federal
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion have warned the public
about criminals posing as DEA
special agents or other law
enforcement personnel as part
of an international extortion
scheme.
An incident of this type was
reported this summer by a local
woman. The scammers tried to
convince her to send them
$1,500 or set up a payment plan.
The local woman was even
given a bogus case number.

We offer the following advice
in anticipation of the next door-
bell ring or knock on your door:
l. Do not open the door for
strangers. Call law enforcement
if they persist in trying to get
you to talk to them. If you are
within the Fernandina Beach
city limits, door-to-door solici-
tation is against the law. Call
the police at 277-7342, then
press 1 or 0 when you hear the
recording. An officer will be dis-
patched to your location. If you
are being bothered by unwel-
come visitors and you live out-
side the city, call the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office at 225-
5174 for help.
2. You should know how to
respond to a door-to-door sales-
person. Here is a suggestion
from the Women's Institute for
a Secure Retirement. Tell the
visitor, "I never buy from or give
to anyone who calls or visits me
unannounced. Send me some-
thing in writing." Talk behind a
closed door if possible.
3. If there is a strange vehi-
cle in your driveway or in front
of your home, remember the
make, color and the license
number. Also. be able to


describe the individual's looks
without compromising your
safety.
4. Let your neighbors know
that you have been approached
by a stranger trying to sell you
something that you did no.t
request or if someone appears
at your door pretending to act in
an official capacity. You are help
ing your neighbors and your-
self by sharing your story and
making the community safer.
5. Beware of a common
scam that involves an impromp-
tu visit by a phony inspector
from the local utility company.
He may claim that there are
service problems in your neigh-
borhood and ask to come in to
inspect your fuse box, HVAC or
furnace. Don't buy this story.
The fake inspector may tell you
that you are violating some code
or local regulation and imme-
diate repairs are required. The
"inspector" may give you the
name of someone who can
make the necessary repairs on
short notice and low cost. The
profits from the "repairs" are
split between these two scam-
mers and your home could be
cased for a later burglary.

6. Another common seam is
the "good neighbor guise." A
stranger will show up at your
door and ask for help under the
pretense of car trouble due to an
accident or breakdown. Offer
to call the police or a tow truck
if you think the person is legit-
imate and want to be a Good
Samaritan. Under no circum-
stances let the individual into
your home.
7. Consider placing a small
sign on or near your door say-
ing "No solicitation," "Bad dog"
or, my favorite, "Come back
with a warrant."
8. The Better Business
Bureau warns people not to
share any personal information
unless they have initiated the
contact and know and are con-
fident in the other person. This
is good advice.
Please call Seniors vs. Crime
if you encounter any of the sit-
uations we have described
above. We want to be able to


warn your neighbors of scams
operating in our comnmunity.
And if you belong to a civic or
community organization, you
should have Seniors vs. Crime
talk to your group about the
scams operating in our area.
Please call the number below

The Fernandina Beach
Police Department arrested
three individuals wanted on
felony drug charges July 25 for
selling prescription drugs,
Police Chief Jim Hurley said in
a press release Thursday.
Chris Ladon Shoemaker, 39,
of 85236 Linda Road, Yulee,
James Brian Peeples, 32, of
Jacksonville, and Kristal Lynn
Salgado, 31, of 95387 Santa
Juana Road, Nassauville, were
each charged with one count
of sale and delivery of a con-


trolled substance.
Peeples faces one count and
Salgado two counts of traffick-
ing in a controlled substance,
Hurley said.
Shoemaker, who authorities
said sold two oxycodone pills to
a police informant in February,
is held in Nassau County Jail
on a $25,000 bond, police said.
On two occasions in
February and March, Peeples
sold 64 oxycodone pills and one
Xanax pill to police informants
during undercover buys,
Hurley said. He remains in
Nassau County Jail on a bond of
$75,000.
Police said Salgado sold an
informant 30 oxycodone pills
and 20 hydrocodone pills dur-
ing undercover buys on three
separate occasions in March
and April. Salgado is being held
on a $125,000 bond, Hurley
said.
Oxycodone and hydroco-
done are narcotic painkillers.
Xanax is a narcotic anti-anxiety
drug.

Police said they tried to stop
a gray scooter driven by Jeffrey
Blake Kimball as it turned from
Sadler Road onto Drury Road.
Kimball, 27, did not stop for a
police cruiser with its lights
activated and instead continued
on the wrong side of the road
until he pulled into a driveway
where he took off on foot,
police said.
Kimball fell to the ground
when a deputy's stun gun
charge caught him in the right
side, police said, and he was
arrested. Deputies learned later
that Kimball's license is
revoked for five years and the
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles has
deemed him a habitual traffic
offender, police said.
A female passenger on the
scooter, identified as Crystal
Gail Amburgey of Fernandina
Beach, was speaking with
police when they saw a "silver
grinder containing marijuana
in plain view, inside (her) open
purse," the police report stated.
A search of her purse uncov-
ered a small plastic bag con-
taining marijuana and two short
straws with white residue,
police said.
Amburgey, 26, allegedly told
police she snorts her pre-
scribed medication, Roxico-
done, a narcotic painkiller.
Kimball allegedly told police
the marijuana and the grinder
were his, but because it was in
Amburgey's purse, both were
charged, the report stated.
Kimball, of 1889 Drury
Road, is charged with driving
while his license was revoked
with knowledge, resisting
police without violence, pos-
session of less than 20 grams of
marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia. He

Amburgey, of 2027 Clinch
Drive, is charged with posses-
sion of a controlled substance,
possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and
possession of drug parapher-
nalia.
Pills on wheels
Two Mississippi men were
arrested on felony drug
charges July 23 after deputies
stopped their truck near Sadler
Road and Citrona Drive for
"faulty equipment," according
to the police report.
Police said the driver,
Armando Luis Gonzalez, told
them his license was suspend-
ed, which dispatch confirmed,
and he allowed deputies to
search the truck.
The passenger, Joseph Paul
Wenger, got out of the truck
for the search during which
deputies found a plastic bag
containing 19 white pills on the
passenger side floorboard, the
report stated.
Gonzalez, 40, told police the
pills were Percocet, a painkiller
prescribed to Wenger for a bro-
ken,tooth, the report stated.
Gonzalez allegedly told
police that Wenger, 22, brought
the pills from Mississippi, but
Wenger said he did not know
where the pills came from and
that he did not have a pre-
scription for Percocet or the
painkiller oxyocodone, police
said. i
The pills were later identi-
fied as oxycodone and.weighed
roughly nine grams, the report
stated.
Gonzalez and Wenger were
each charged with possession
of a controlled substance, and
Gonzalez was also charged with


driving while his license was
suspended with knowledge.
Stolen property
A Yulee woman was arrest-
ed at her Megan Street home
on July 25 for dealing in stolen
property and other charges for
stealing jewelry from her
boyfriend's mother, according
to a police report.
A Fernandina Beach woman
told police that between July 1-
20, someone stole $450 worth
of jewelry from her home. On
July 20, deputies learned that
Samantha Lee Pottorff had sold
the described items to a local
jewelry store on two dates with-
in the timeframe they had been
given, the report said.
Deputies showed photos of
the sold items to the victim,
who confirmed they were the
items stolen, police said. While
reviewing copies of the sales
receipts and transaction forms,
which included a driver's
license, the victim identified the
seller as her son's girlfriend,
police said.
During an interview on July
25, Pottorff, 21, "admitted to
pawning the stolen items"
because she "needed the
money to support her addiction
to prescription pills," the report
stated.
Pottorff, of 85287 Megan St.,
is charged with grand theft and
two counts of dealing in stolen
property. She remains in
Nassau County Jail on a $35,006
bond.

I IFAlH FER A. PERRY
Nce's Leader


Nassau County families in
crisis or dealing with addiction
issues have looked to Sutton
Place Behavioral Health for
help since 1992.
Chief Operating Officer
Linda Ellis is excited about
some new programs at the
agency. "We're in the center of
the county, but we're expanding
our outreach into schools and
primary care so we can help
more people."
CEO Laureen Pagel added,
"We want to do more out in the
community because we're pret-
ty much grown here."
Sutton Place, 463142 SR 200,
is filled with counselors and
interns. Two important new
programs providing a broader
range of services for the com-
munity are Targeted Case
Management and Therapeutic
Behavioral On-site Services.
Both programs are funded
through Medicaid.
Targeted Case Management
helps link adults or children
with mental illness to valuable
resources. "This helps people
navigate the system and access
the help they need like food
stamps or other things," said
Ellis.
Therapeutic Behavioiral On-
site Services is a new program
that helps families of children
with behavioral issues.
Counselors work directly with


Pagel


school personnel, teachers and
parents in the school setting to
observe and assess how to hell)
the children.
"They can also go to the
home and help with parenting
skills and behavior modifica-
tions," said Ellis.
A third program coming
soon to the Hilliard area is
Integrated Care, which has the
agency partnering with St.
Vincent's Primary Care to bring
licensed clinicians to that site.
Additional services at the
Yulee location include outpa-
tient mental health therapy, psy-
chiatric evaluation and med-
ication management, substance
abuse education and treatment
and socialization rehabilitation
programs for people of all ages.
Special services are avail-
able for women with substance
abuse or trauma issues, and
group therapy addresses a vari-
ety of needs including anger


management, positive parent-
ing, women's empowerment,
recovery and substance abuse.
A special group just for
teens is Giving Opportunities to
Adolescents' Lives (GOAL).
"The group setting is so
important because sometimes
young people respond better
to being confronted by peers
or they can feel validated by
them. They can also see oth-
ers' success and that gives
them hope," said Pagel.
Both women emphasized
open access, an important
aspect of the care offered at
Sutton Place Behavioral Health.
"We open every day at 8 a.m.
People can just walk in and
they'll be seen. They don't need
to have an appointment."
Potential clients need to
bring a picture ID, insurance
card and proof of income such
as a paycheck stub or their
most recent income tax state-
ment. There is a sliding scale
fee for services and Medicaid,
Medicare and all private insur-
ances are accepted.
Office hours are 8 a.m.-5
p.m. Monday-Friday but coun-
selors are available 24 hours a
day, seven days a week to help
those in crisis. For information
call 225-8280 or visit
www.spbh.org for a detailed list-
ing of all available services.
"Our slogan is still the
same," said.Pagel, "Help for
today and hope for tomorrow."

Storks, pelicans in Moldova


Here in the wetlands of
Moldova I feel right at home.
If I forgot about the long plane
trip and the foreign languages
spoken all around me (both
Romanian and Russian) and
just observed, I could be
home. But instead I was in
"Prutul de Jos" Scientific
Reserve on Beleau Lake along
the Lower Prut River basin, a
part of the Danube river
basin.
As my guide rows us
through the muddy water and
my colleague Aurel Lozan


interprets his wisdom, I see
egrets and herons standing
still in the I l l. ii.
intently looking for fish. Some
of these birds, like the great
white egret, are the very same
species that I often watch at
home on Amelia Island.
And look, what are those
white birds over there? What
are they doing? They are
sweeping their bills back and
forth just like our spoonbills
at home! And yes, I've now
learned, there are spoonbills
here, white ones, a different


species from our roseate
(pink) ... ,,. 'Ill. but in the
same iili of birds with the
same flattened bill and the
same .,..- II ,,., technique.
Then I look further across
the lake. In the distance there
is a long line of white, these
must be birds too. As we pad-
dle closer and can see more
detail the line of white turns
into a group of more than a
thousand white pelicans some
with heads poked down,
catching fish. It's a scene like

These are a different

my guides
had no prob-

this- they

yes, they
were beauti-
ful here on

Later on
in the day,
as I pic-


nicked with my hosts, I
watched long lines of pelicans
soaring on the thermals above
the hills of the surrounding
farmland, a beautiful distrac-
tion from the heaping plates of
fried fish, fish stew, roasted
meat, farmer's cheese, bread,
potatoes, tomatoes, cucum-
bers, plums, apples and

vested and produced nearby.

table in a ritual I've come to
expect. "Noroc," they said, in
endless toasts to our health, to
our families, to each other.
"Noroc," I happily replied and
sipped my share. I declined
the homemade cherry vodka
- except for a taste but that
was there too for those with
time to nap after lunch.
No napping yet for me.
Aurel and I still had miles to
go, to see more of Moldova
before we reached our next
destination. Aurel was driving
-and had declined any wine
offered him because of this -
but I had enough wine to be
happily content, looking.
out the window and enjoying
life.
As we left the town beside
the wetland I saw another
trace of home. High on top of
a utility pole on a platform a
huge stick nest was visible.
Could this be an osprey nest,


like we watch all the time on
our very own utility pole on
North 14th Street in
Fernandina? But no, I was
wrong, no ospreys here. A bit
further down the road on
another pole I found my
answer.
A family of white storks
was settled in the nest, the
young as big as the parents,
viewable at close range. These
storks look similar to our own
wood storks in North Florida
and are members of the same
bird family and like our own
storks they feed on frogs and
insects and other small prey.
In Europe these storks are
well-liked and encouraged,
with platforms positioned on
telephone poles to welcome
them into communities with
wetlands nearby that the
storks forage in. It's just like
we do for our ospreys.
The world of man and
nature is not very different
wherever I go. There's a les-
son to be learned here for one
and all.

Florida, nearly a 9 percent
increase since 2008, when the
state implemented a bald eagle
management plan. Long-term
success with bald eagles in
Florida is reflected in the
species' recovery from just 88
active nests in 1973.
Florida's greatest concen-
trations of bald eagle nesting
territories are clustered around
coastal and freshwater areas
such as the Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes. In 2011, Osceola and
Polk counties ranked first and
second, i, -,-...i'... ',. for highest
number of documented bald
eagle nests. There is a Bald
Eagle Nest Locator at MyFWC.

While the bald eagle is no
longer'listed as an endangered
or threatened species, it is fed-
erally protected under the Bald
and Golden Eagle Protection
Act and Migratory Bird Treaty
Act, and by state rule. It is ille-
gal to feed, disturb, take or pos-
sess a bald eagle, its feathers,
nest or eggs.
The public can help con-
serve bald eagles in Florida by
following state guidelines for
activities near eagle nests, and
by reporting new eagle nest

winds will be blowing from
the southwest at 5-10 mph
with clouds and the chance of
a thunderstorm. The daytime
high will be 92 degrees with a
heat index of 108 degrees.
The good news is the early
morning predicted winds will
be light and variable, which
will attract more small
boaters to enter the event.
Bay boats are becoming more
popular with local fishing
teams as they are able to com-
pete in a variety of fishing
waters and for a variety of
"rodeo" saltwater gamefish
species.
"We are having more'
rodeo entries this year,"
NSFA president John
Hartrich said. "Fishing teams


can win up to $1,000 in cash
for weighing in the largest of
five species of backwater and
five species of offshore game-
fish without entering the main
tournament. However, the
main tournament is still -
focused around the largest
king mackerel where a pay
day of up to $10,000 in cash is
up for grabs."
The entry fee for the
Fishing Rodeo portion of the
event is now $125 per boat.
The offshore species include.
sea bass, wahoo, dolphin,
grouper and cobia. Backwater
species include redfish, the
redfish with the most spots,
flounder, sea trout and
sheepshead.
The entry fee for the main
tournament is now $400 per


team with cash awards for the
10 largest king mackerel.
Also the lady angler and jun-

based on largest king macker-

The Newcomers Club of Amelia Island held its monthly coffee July 12 at the home
of Pam Park, above. All women of Nassau County, no matter how long they have
lived here, are welcome to attend. New members may attend two coffees before

Riverkeepervisits
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club recently wel-
comed Lisa Rinaman, St. Johns Riverkeeper. A com-
munity and political activist since moving to
Jacksonville in 1997, Rinamen was selected as
Riverkeeper in January. The movement began more
than 30 years ago with the Hudson River in New
York and is a program designed to ensure the
nation's rivers and waterways are clean and healthy
for generations to come. The St. Johns Riverkeeper
program accepts only private donations from some
1,400 members and receives no government fund-
ing.
The program boasts an army of advocates, includ-
ing scientists, lawyers and environmentalists who
identify problems affecting the river, as well as hold
accountable governments and business entities con-
tributing to pollution of the river. Rinaman and her
volunteers investigate possible incidences of pollu-
tion and advocate against practices that might harm
the river such as excessive water withdrawal, nutri-
ent pollution and losses of vital wetlands. Rinaman
said much of her time is spent educating the public
about the health and wellbeing of the St. Johns River
and the 310-mile-long waterway is the lifeblood of
Florida's tourism and business industry and
deserves to be treated with care and respect, now
and into the future.
