'Baby boom' for sea turtles


Florida News Connection
ST: PETERSBURG It's a "baby
boom" year for Florida sea turtles.
Around the state, wildlife experts
are pleasantly surprised by the num-
ber of sea turtle nests popping up on
beaches. Nest counts are 50 percent
higher statewide.
(On Amelia Island, there are 216
nests, well above the 2011 total of
154.)
Blair Witherington, a research sci-
entist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, points out


that multiple seasons such as this
are needed to repair the damage done
to the sea turtle population in past
years.
"We don't always know why they
make decisions to nest. Of course,
one season does not a 'population'
make."
Witherington says some of the
nesting could be attributed to greater
availability of food for the turtles.
When wildlife researchers find nests
on the beach, they rope them off so
they're easily seen and ask the public
to leave them undisturbed. The nest-


ing period for sea turtles in Florida
runs from March through October.
Elizabeth Fleming, a Florida rep-
resentative of Defenders of Wildlife,
says it's also important to reduce arti-
ficial ;_ l-1 i ,L in beach areas at night.
After they hatch, turtles instinctively
go toward the brightest light, which
on natural beaches is the moon's
reflection on the water. Streetlights
can prompt hatchlings and their moth-
ers to go the wrong direction.
"Sea turtles get disoriented. The
females, instead of going back to the
water, they will head up beyond the


dunes and sometimes into a parking
lot even they've been run over in the
street."
Florida is known to biologists as a
sea turtle haven. Witherington says 90
percent of nesting in the United States
takes place in the Sunshine State.
"The significance of Florida to the
world's sea turtles can't be overstated.
Florida is very important. We are the
sea turtle state."
Loggerhead turtles make up most
of the Florida population, but the num-
bers of green and leatherback turtles
also are growing.

Overflowing with every sort
e ,. of gizmo and gadget neces-
S : sary for the upkeep of the
home, Amelia Island Paint
& Hardware has been a favorite
stopping place for professional
painters, handymen and local resi-
dents for 32 years.
Despite the arrival of big-box
home improvement stores, the
island store thrives on convenience
and service.
A cheerful tune announces arriv-
ing shoppers, the enticing aroma of
popcorn "often permeates the air and
a pair.of snowshoes rests incongru-
ously in' the window of this old-fash-
ioned Florida hardware store.
A landmark in Fernandina Beach
since the 1930s when it was Askins
Super Market, the corner has also
been home to a sign shop, a ciga-
rette shop and a bail bondsman.
In 1980, Mary Palmisano ran the
office in the paint store while her
husband, Ralph, was off handling
the millwork supplies. The owner.of
the paint store would often ask Mary
Palmisano to run things while she
stepped out to do errands.
"Eventually my mother asked the
owner if she'd like to sell the busi-
ness so for $800, she got the paint,
the shakers and everything," said


Andy Palmisano, who worked in.the
store for his parents.
.The family expanded their'busi-
ness several times, eventually pur-
chasing the building. Amelia Island
Paint & Hardware reached its cur-
rent size in 1988.
Andy Palmisano purchased the
business from his father in 2001, just
two years before he passed away.
Like his dad before him, Andy
knows most of his customers by
name and is not above some good-
natured kidding with regulars. He's
always ready to help the harried
homeowner find the perfect tool to
complete a project or mix just the
right shade of paint to please a con-
tractor's fussy client.
If he's busy, one of his knowl-
edgeable staff can help. Bonnie
Dawson has been assisting folks for
17 years, Kris Fera for 11 and the
newest member of the crew, Randy
Edge, just under a month.
Whether it's replacement parts
for the kitchen'sink or a post for the
mailbox, chances are it can be found
among the shelves and counters
bursting\vith supplies.
Some of the more unusual items
stocked are several sizes of galva-
nized tubs and two sizes of wash-
boards.

County



pays for



state



roads

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Nassau County funded more than
$2 million in capital improvements to
state-maintained roads and intersec-
tions during the past two years, accord-
ing to county records.
Commissioners funded the bulk of
the roadwork with impact fees, or fees
charged to developers to pay for
growth and infrastructure, Public
Works Director Scott Herring said.
The commission used to pool those
fees in a pot from which the county
would fund capital improvements, but
commissioners voted in June,2008 to
halt the collection of impact fees.
Much of the work hlas been com-
pleted but some projects, like the
widening of Chester Road, are still
under way. Completed projects include
improvements such as added turn
lanes and signalization upgrades -to
intersections at Spring Lake Drive and
Lem Turner Road, Ratliff Road and
US 1, Ford Road ard US 301, Sandy
Ford Road and US 301 on the West
Side and Sadler Road and Citrona
Drive in Fernandina Beach.
Herring said previously it's "very
common" for counties to foot the bill
for work on intersections typically
maintained and paid for by the Florida
Department of Transportation. In
doing so, they remove many of the
hurdles barring the state from starting
large-scale project's, scfih as widening
roads, Herring said.
Plus, he said, the county has fewer
hoops than the state to jump through
when it comes to working on local
intersections. "It eliminates the bot-
tlenecks for the small scale projects,"
Herring said.
Gina Busscher, an FDOT
spokesperson, agreed. "If they think it
might improve safety or congestion,

Noel Eugene Kiernan
Noel Eugene Kiernan, age
54, of Fernandina Beach passed
away on Thursday, August 9,
2012.
Noel was born in County
Cavan,
Ireland and
was one of
1- eleven chil-
dren born to
Eugene and
Mary Lee
Kiernan.
_Noel has a
twin sister,
Lucy, along with six more sis-
ters, Dolores, Mona, Patricia,
Mary, Christina and Claire, and
three brothers, Jimmy, John
and Gerry, who live in Ireland,
San Francisco, CA, and
England. Noel grew up on a
farm, which kept him busy as a
child. In 1978, he moved to San
Francisco because a local Irish
neighbor had invited him out
to work in his moving business.
He worked hard as a mover for
a few years, and then he trained
as a plasterer and joined the
local Plasterers Union. He
worked hard, saving his money
.'to buy real estate in San
Francisco, which turned out to
be his passion as a profession..
In 1992, Noel and Elizabeth
met in an Irish pub (where else)
on Haight Street in San
Francisco. They fell in love and
were married in 1994 at St.
John's Presbyterian Church in
San Francisco and were sur-
rounded by wonderful family
and friends from'Ireland and
all across the United States.
Before they started a family,
they really wanted to travel as
they loved to try new foods,
experience new cultures and
meet new people. They trav-
eled to France, Spain, Greece,
Italy and all over Ireland as well
as all over the US from Hawaii
to New York. In 1999, they wel-
comed a daughter, Madison
Walker Kiernan, and in 2001;
they welcomed a son, Liam
Russell Kiernan, who have both
always been the twinkle of
Noel's eyes.
In 2004, the Kiernan family
moved to Kenmare, County
Kerry, Ireland where they
made wonderful friends and
lived a dream that Noel and
Elizabeth shared. They enjoyed
living closer to Noel's family so
they could visit with his moth-
er, siblings, and many cousins
more often. In 2009, Noel and
Elizabeth decided to move to
Fernandina Beach and to make
it their new -home as Noel
always loved being close to the
sea.
Noel loved the SF 49ers foot-
ball, Irish/Gaelic football, trav-
eling the world, Irish music,
long walks on the beach and a
good pint of Smithwicks in a
local pub. We will never forget
his wonderful humor, sweet
Irish accent and the twinkle in
his eye.

his love and passion for the
game, but most importantly his

FOR THE RECORD

In 2004, McGill Aviation filed for Triple A arbitration
because the city of Fernandina Beach was taking away 100,000
square feet of land it had leased to McGill as the municipal air-
port's fixed base operator. The city then filed a retaliatory law-
suit to evict McGill, according to McGill attorney James
Middleton. A front-page story July 27 about the city losing its
appeal of the final judgment in its lawsuit stated otherwise.

"The Purple Pig" which fea-
tured Gap and Chuck
Mangione. In 1971 he moved
to Prickly Mountain in Warren,
Vermont, where he won the
Vermont Bicentennial
Competition and founded an
advertising agency working for
diverse accounts such as
Sugarbush Corporation,


Vermont Castings, the Vermont
Jazz Festival and various resort
developments in the Northeast
and Caribbean. A sailor since
his early childhood summers
on Lake Ontario, Sibley raced
his sailboat "Gran Cru" com-
petitively on lake Champlain
in the summers and enjoyed
skiing in'the winters. Sibley
spent a year sailing in the
Bahamas and Caribbean before
dropping anchor in Fernandina
Beach in 1987 where he set up
his waterfront studio and short-
ly thereafter met his wife Mary
at a wine tasting at the "Cross-
Eyed Bear" Wine Shop.
A renaissance man, Sibley's
interests included history, lit-
erature, architecture, music,
opera and the visual and culi-
nary arts. Sibley enjoyed wilder-
ness trekking in the Western
U.S., Europe and South
America, which inspired his
abstract painting. Sibley also
took inspiration from urban
treks through museums,
churches, back streets and
promenades in cities through-
out the world, ranking Istanbul,
Barcelona and Paris among his
favorites.
Sibley was influenced by the
New York school of abstract
expressionism particularly
James Brooks, a recognized
abstractionist and one of his
teachers at Pratt. Sibley's body
of artwork reflects his fearless
experimentation of various
media and artistic expression;.
utilizing 'elements of collage,
photography, transfer process-
es and mixed media in his
paintings. While the body of
work refuses to yield a single
signature style, each of his
works reflects his unique sen-
.sibility.
An active artist until shortly
before his death, Sibley was joy-
ful and energized to accept a
commission for a mobile, some-
thipg he had never done before.
True to form, he created not
one, but a series of three dis-
tinctly different mobiles in his
final exploration of color, space
and shape.
He is survived by.his wife
Mary Berger, three daughters,
Robin Twombly of Roxbury, VT
and Maui, Hawaii; Dana (Dan)
Hugg of West Berlin, VT;
Gretchen Sibley of Canoga
Park, CA, as well as eight
grandchildren, two gieat-grand-
chijdiren and his many works
of art.

door Science Garden or the

City airport may be site of



vintage motoring festival


ANGELA DAUGIIHTRY
NevI.'s Leader

City commissioners gave
conceptual approval at their
Aug. 7 meeting for a vintage-
style motoring festival to be
held in 2013 at the Fernandina
Beach Municipal Airport.
Bill Warner and Ralph
Thomas of the Amelia Island
Concours d'Elegance made a
presentation to commissioners
outlining the highlights of the
proposed event, which would
be similar to the Goodwood
Festival of Speed held annual-
ly in West Sussex, England.
The family-oriented four-
day event would feature vin-
tage automobiles, aircraft,
motorcycles and fashions,
according to the presentation,
and would also be a celebra-
lion of historical events.
According to Warner, the
Amelia Island Concours
d'Elegance Foundation and the
Automotive Heritage Services
were contacted by a world-
class sports and entertainment
group and their European cus-
tomer about the possibility of
having the event at the city air-
port in late 2013.
Thomas said he and
Warner had spoken to all the


airport tenants except otne. aind
that they were in favorlt f the
event.
"I think it's great, but we:
would have to work with th(e
cilt manager and with the
fixed-base operator (at the nair-
port)," Vice Mayor Jeffrey
Bunch said. "We need to make
sure one runway stays open ...
and make sure the sponsor
pays the right price for the spe-
cial event." He added that the
city should not be spending
money for fire and police serv-
ices for the event.
"I'm excited about this com-
ing here," Commissioner Tim
Poynter said. "It's such a tight
time frame ... and we're hav-
ing so many budget issues
right now. ... We need to have
a committee put together ...
and make sure we gel it going."
Thomas and Warner said
they had already studied the
proposed event site, which is at
the southwest corner of the
city airport, and would utilize
Runway 18/36 for vintage car
racing. The proposed race
course would be about 2.3
miles long, and Runway 9/27
would also be open for vintage
aircraft to land and fw small
planes to service participants.
The event company would


Sidewalks for Southside


Southside Elementary
School students will soon have
new sidewalks to use to and
from school, as part of the Safe
Routes to Schools program.
City commissioners at a
recent meeting approved a con-
struction and maintenance
agreement with the Florida


Depart ment of Transportation
for sidewalks on South 11th
and Jasmine streets.
The new sidewalks will be
constructed on South 11th
Street from Lime to Jasmine
streets, and on Jasmine Street
from the west school entrance
to South 14th Street.


The city has been asked to
fund annual costs of operation
and maintenance of the side-
walks, which are expected to
last 30-40 years, according to a
city document. Annual main-
tenance costs are expected to
be less than $1,000 per mile
per sidewalk.


Alligator a nuisance? Here's


what to do, who to call


Alligators are active during
ti y r- r .r b r r-o,r .il., and .
there's a good chance that peo-
ple who live around water will
encounter these native crea-
tures.
'Alligators are deceptively
quick, both in and out of the
water. If someone is bitten by
an alligator, he or she should
seek medical attention as soon
as possible. Alligator bites can
result in serious infections
requiring specific antibiotic
treatment, according to Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission officials.
Avoid the risk of an alligator
bite by not taking matters into
your own hands or putting
yourself in harm's way. Call the
FWC's Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR
(392-4286) to report any alli-
gator you believe poses a
threat to people, pets or prop-
erty.
Taking an alligator without
a permit is a violation of FWC
rules, and anyone intentional-
ly killing an alligator could be
cited.
The Statewide Nuisance
Alligator Program (SNAP)
uses contracted nuisance alli-
gator trappers throughout the

arnabas
CENTER. INC


state to remove alligators that
Shavi become a problem. If ah
alligator is 4 feet or larger and
the complaint meets other
qualifying criteria, SNAP will
issue a permit to a contracted
nuisance alligator trapper
authorizing the removal of the
animal.
In 2010, SNAP received
13,047 nuisance alligator com-
plaints, resulting in the removal
of 5,856 nuisance alligators.
Dogs and cats are similar
in size to the natural prey of
alligators. Don't allow pets to
swim, exercise or drink in or
near waters that may contain
alligators.


Never feed alligators it's
dangerous and illegal,
Dispose of fish scraps in
garbage cans at boat ramps
and fish camps. Do not throw
them into the water. Although
you are not intentionally feed-
ing alligators when you do this,
the result can be the same.
Observe and photograph
alligators only from a distance.
Leave alligators alone.
Handling even small alligators
can result in injury. State law
prohibits killing, harassing or
possessing alligators.

alligators, visit MyFWC.com/

make improvements to paving
and access roads before the
event. Insurance and repairs
to airport properly would be
the responsibility of the pro-
moter.
According to the presenta-
tion, the event would be held in
the fall, after hurricane season
and before the Concours
d'Elegance in March. The vin-
tage motoring event would also
replace revenue lost by the
withdrawal of the Amelia Island
Pro Tennis Championship that
was traditionally held in late
September.
Thomas said the city would
soon need to get a formal pro-
posal for the Federal Aviation
Administration n i. *.. f. ,l
planning of the event can take
place, and the proposal would
also be evaluated by the
unnamed European entertain-
ment company.
According to the presenta-
tion, two other sites- Watkins
Glen, N.Y., and Palm Beach -
are also being considered by
the European promoter for the
proposed event.
Warner began the Amelia
Island Concours d'Elegance in
1996 as a charity event bene-

Sometimes it happens that

Busscher said, but it's more
often the other way around with
the state picking up the coun-

Stockton isn't like other
cities in California. Except for
maybe a few.
In fact, Stockton has a
uniique(' distinction that no
other city in the U.S. can

As of late June, the town of
1000000 residents became the
largest U.S. municipality to
go bankrupt. Lavish union
concessions, frivolous public
projects and reckless money
management exacerbated
by the economic downtown -
have forced the San
Francisco suburb to file for
Chapter 9 bankruptcy protec-
tion.
Now, city employees and
especially its 2,000 retirees
are grasping to retain their
pension and health benefits.
The city is $800 million
behind in its contributions
toward promised employee
benefits.
A new city hall in down-
town Stockton sits empty; city
officials could never afford to
move their offices into the
multi-story building. Other

the real estate boom in the
1990s, drinking from a boun-
tiful stream of property taxes.
But this stream dried up for
the city and many others in
the mid-2000s. Meanwhile,
some public officials refuse to
rein in spending, instead
making political promises to
unions and pushing ahead
with unnecessary public proj-
ects.
Now, on top of the finan-
cial wreckage, Stockton is
overrun by crime. The city's
police force has been
reduced by 30 percent in
rec'nlt years. And city
employees have endured
unpaid furloughs, pay cuts
and a new mandate to help
pay for their health care ben-
efits.
The talk around California
is that Stockton and other
cities should have followed
the lead of places like San
Diego, which have switched
their pension plans into
401(k) models like the pri-
vate sector. A hard pill for
employees to swallow, it
beats the alternative of work-
ing for promised benefits that
may never materialize.
Stockton has now suffered
a downgrade in its credit rat-
ing. This will encumber the
city from borrowing in the
future (which may be a good
thing).
The city must now do
what it should have done
before live within its avail-
able means and revenues.
And do what is best for the
citizens, not for the city
employees.

Persuading the 'Great Leader' to leave


Many "Great Leaders" who
reach the top can't or won't let
go. Nothing supports this
more than the recent Joe
Paterno case. As with Joe
Paterno and, before him,
Woody Hayes and Bobby
Knight, there is a tendency to
stay around way too long. A
few years ago, I chided some
Penn State graduates that if
Joe Paterno was truly a great
leader he would have devel-
oped a replacement to take
over the reins. I felt that the
argument Paterno made,
"What would he then do with
his life?" made my point.
We can all name individu-
als in business and politics
who wouldn't leave until it was
too late. Obviously the adula-
tion and financial rewards that
come with great success are
reasons many of these leaders
refuse to let go. In their opin-.
ion, no one else can live up to


Iheir li]--
dal-d, This
I la silt'. "lii s
L results in the
ibelterl subo:

dream. The
L OAC' subordinates
lCOACH'S who remain
CORNER usually play
... up to the
"Gr(eal Lead-
H/oward er" and sup-
Pines port the nar-
rative. In
additionn, .. i ill in founder-
driven companies, the "Great
IetadT'r" may finally agree to
go, but invariably stays on as
board chairman to ensurll the
new CEO( doesn't destroy
what he or she built.
Interestingly, when Beam-
Pines was called in to do
assessmlients, a truism was


that a major responsibility of
;Min CEO( is to develop a suc-
cession plan. including: a suc-
cessor, and then helping the
successorI achieve success.
'v cry board member admits
that oine of1 heir most imnpor-
tantl responsibilities is to
elnsilr. Ilheri' i a suitable suc-
cession plan in place, and they
spend hours every year
reviewing it. So why are there
so many examples of this not
happening?
The problem is if the
"Great Leader" doesn't want
to leave, for whatever reason,
the members of the board,
whether they are at Penn
State or at a Fortune 500 com-
pany, are in a difficult position.
At SI 'I watched Henry Weigl
sabotage backup after backup.
This was also true at AIG. The
board, however, has to make
the risky decision and choose
someone the "Great Leader"


has declared will never be
ready, ask the "Great IX:ader"
to find another backup to
develop or go to the outside
for an immediate replacement.
A few companies and
sports teams have a reputa-
tion for developing successful
succession plans. In sports,
the Pittsburgh Steelers are
now on their third successful
head coach over a 25-year
stretch. In business, GE devel-
oped a great succession plan-
ning system. Reggie Jones,
their CEO in the late '70's, was
a legend but he focused on
succession planning and
along came Jack Welch, who
may have become an even
bigger legend. Welch, to his
credit, followed the Reggie


Jones model.
Howeverc, in order to bring
this about, Jones and Welch,
instead of coinfing them-
selves to selecting a number
2, looked at the entire field
and chose the executive they
felt had the most talent to
become CEO, not necessarily
the next in line. In addition,
the CEO who is retiring,
instead of moving up to chair-
man of the board, most likely
should leave and allow the
new CEO to be in charge.
The truth is, (.-! i ill
when there is a major financial
component at stake, human
nature doesn't allow most
"Great Leaders" to follow the
models of GE or the
Pittsburgh Steelers.


T'herelfore, Imy belief has
become that the besth solution
is soie form of term limits. In
this way leaders don't become
all powerful and/or indispen-
sable, and will focus more
time oi their replacement suc-
ceeding, rai her than how I hey
caln hang on to power.

What happens when you



can t pay medical bills?

JASON ALDERMAN -
For the News-Leader r i i i


It's no secret that health
care costs have been spiraling
out of control for years. To fight
back, your best bet is to be a
well-informed consumer: Know
the 'true costs of medical pro-
cedures, supplies and medica-
tions so you can bargain effec-
tively; carefully anticipate and
track medical expenses; and
stay on top of your bills.
But sometimes, even when
you follow the rules you still
can get burned. I've heard
many appalling stories about
people even those with com-
prehensive insurance who
have been denied benefits,
over-charged, sent to collec-
tions or even forced to file for
bankruptcy because they could-
n't pay their medical bills.
Here are a few coping strate-
gies:
Carefully review each doc-
tor, lab or hospital bill and
match it against the
Explanation of Benefits state-
mnent that- shows how much
they were reimbursed by the
insurance company. Also, watch
for items that may have been
charged to you by mistake such
as:
Medications, supplies, treat-
ments or meals you didn't
receive while hospitalized or
getting an outpatient proce-
dure.
Duplicate charges for a sin-
gle procedure (such as X-rays,
MRIs and lab work), including
those that had to be redone due
to a technician's error.
Charges for a full day's hos-
pitalization when you checked
out early; or private room rates
when you shared a suite.
The summary hospital bill
you were sent probably doesn't
contain many details, so ask for
an itemized bill along with a
copy of your medical chart and
a pharmacy ledger showing
which drugs you were given
during your stay.
If you're having difficulty
paying a medical bill, don't sim-
ply ignore it. Like any creditor,
doctors and hospitals often turn
unpaid bills over to collection
agencies, which will wreak
havoc with your credit score.
Contact creditors as soon as
possible, explain your situation
and ask them to set up an
installment payment plan or
work out a reduced rate.
Many people with no insur-
ance discover that they're often
charged much higher rates'
than those negotiated by insur-
ance companies, Medicare and
Medicaid. Don't be afraid to ask
for those lower rates and to
work out a repayment plan -
just be sure to get the agree-
ment in writing. Most doctors
and hospitals would rather
accept reduced payments than
have to deal with collection
agencies and possibly no reim-
bursement at all.
Ask the hospital's patient
liaison to review your case and
see whether you qualify for
financial assistance from the
government, a charitable organ-
ization or the hospital itself.
Most will forgive some or all
bills for people whose income
falls below certain amounts tied
to federal poverty levels. Also
pursue this avenue with your
doctor or other provider ide-
ally before they've begun col-
lections.

Ask whether your employer
offers flexible spending
accounts, which let you pay for
eligible out-of-pocket health
care and/or dependent care
expenses on a pre-tax basis.
Use online price-comparison
services like Healthcare Blue
Book and OutofPocket.com to
research going rates for a vari-
ety of medical services.
Unless it's a true emer-


gen'cy, try to avoid emergency
rooms and use an urgent care
network facility affiliated with
your insurance company or ask
your doctor for recommenda-
lions.
Bottom line: Know what
health services cost and don't
be afraid to negotiate. You'll
haggle over the price of a car -
why not your health?

COMMUNITY THANKS

Thanks for giving
The Amelia Island Museum of History'
wishes to say thank you to all the people who
have contributed to our first annual giving
campaign.
In May we asked the community to invest
in us so that our local history can continue to
be told. One of the greatest challenges today
is funding. With an operating budget of just
over $350,000, half of the museum's income
this year will come from membership (16 per-
cent), general admission and tours (24 per-
cent) and grants (9 percent). The remaining
income must come from fundraisers and pub-
lic support in the form of donations.
Expenses have been controlled through
sound operating procedures and analysis, and
both revenues from membership and tradi-
tional fundraisers have increased. In the last
few years however, grant income has fallen
dramatically as funders shift priorities and
government budgets tighten. In order to main-
tain popular programs such as the fourth-
grade tours, the children's summer camp and
I le "-'.rd -riil ',, on 3rd Street Lecture Series,
new revenue sources must be found to fill
the gap.
To date the community has responded by
donating over $23,000, pushing the museum
well on its way to the $35,000 goal. There is.
still a campaign shortfall of $12,000 and your
support is needed. To kick off the campaign,
each and every museum board member con-
tributed and, in addition, a donation from
Blackbaud, Inc. (a leading provider offundrais-
ing software to nonprofits) has been received.
Please join us in demonstrating your support
of and commitment to our role as a commu-
nity focused organization.
If you have not been to the museum recent-
ly you have missed a vibrant and enlightening
experience. For more information come and
visit us on our website at http://ameliamu-
seum.org/ or call us at 261-7378.
If you believe in the importance of the
museum, please join us in our efforts to keep
our local history alive. Help us keep the 8
flags flying proudly!

Time for a 28 percent solution


n my last column I outlined what I have
long considered to be inequities regarding
the city's fiscal relationship with the coun-
ty. I also cited specific situations that, I
believe, support my deeply held conviction
that Fernandina Beach taxpayers are the most
abused in Nassau County. Now, some ways to
cure those inequities and ease the burden on
that unfortunate group of taxpayers that have
come to accept the annual fleecing as "busi-
ness as usual." Some possible answers:.
The city and county should negotiate
interlocal agreements that make the city of
Fernandina Beach responsible for the island's
public safety police, fire and rescue. This
agreement would recognize and formalize the
current situation, but would contractually obli-
gate the county to pay the city for island-wide
coverage. Now, the city is providing island-wide
coverage, de facto, but city taxpayers are not
being reimbursed. These newly negotiated
agreements would remedy that.
The city's recreation programs cost city
taxpayers over $2 million a year and over 60
percent of the users are non-city residents. The
county commission should acknowledge those
numbers and work with the city to find ways to
be more of a contributor. They could, for exam-
ple, use the direct revenue sharing model -
write a check to the city for a negotiated
amount. Or they could use a modified categori-
cal or block or project grant approach -write a
check to the city for specific programs and/or
projects that would reflect non-city participa-
tion numbers.
Over the years when these situations, or
inequities have been brought to the county
commission's attention they've said things like,
"Well, isn't it right that the city's police depart-
ment answer calls in the county, after all, the
sheriff answers calls in the city?" Yes, but at
least historically they always forget one key
thing Fernandina Beach taxpayers are county
residents, too, and roughly 28 percent of the
sheriff's budget comes from city taxpayers, so


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Naive?
Re: 'Anti-gun," Aug. 8.
The time between changing clips
on an AR15 is not a "second or two"
- it is a lifetime. Ask .any Marine,
Army infantryman or Navy SEAL.,
This is basic knowledge to
Americans who have spent 13 weeks
of their formative years on Parris
Island (S.C.) or Fort Benning (Ga.)
or 18 months in SEAL training.
It is beyond belief that the Aurora
coward could change a clip in one or
two seconds (13-plus pounds with
5.56 x 50 to 100 rounds). Believe
me, those heroes slumped over their
girlfriends were waiting for a clip
change. If they weren't getting cut
up in -I ,. b-il-: b,'. a'ridiculous 50-100-
round MAG, a clip change would
have given them several options at
enjoying a life with the love they so
protected.
It is reported the coward was
dressed in gloves, inside a darkened
smoking theater, perpetrating a war-
rior from his ability to point and
click on Guns and Ammo websites,
jumped up on pills and wearing a
mask. I give Clown Coward 15 sec-
onds minimum to go through the
eight steps of a magazine change.
That is more than enough to get a
beatdown from one of those Batman
fans.
Keep the handguns, protect your-
self and your family. Keep the rifles
to enjoy hunting in this great coun-
try. Please leave the max-capacity
weaponry to our great servicemen
and women. Call me a "dreamer,"
but I ain't taking the naive tag you
are passing out. That is yours.

Election propaganda
We have received over 50 elec-
tion advertisements via the U.S. mail
for and against local candidates for
the upcoming primary elections. All
but one were over-sized, glossy
and expensive.
The one exception was from Ken
Overstreet who promoted a "Get
out of debt Stay out of debt Pay
as you go" campaign. His literature
came on plain letterhead stationery,
a simple business envelope and a
Freedom Forever stamp!
He got my vote because he prac-
tices what he believes.
Patricia Boxler

Wow! Wow! Wowl
There was a time when the word
"re-elect" preceding a candidate's
name was advantageous. My, my
how times change. Voters have lost
the patience with elected officials'
failure to reverse the recession and
are demanding change.
There is another, less obvious
reason to vote a candidate out of
office. One doesn't have to possess
a PhD in economics to understand
that taxpayers cannot afford to fund
the current government-defined
benefit pension program much
longer. By reflecting public officials
we'almost certainly guarantee them
a pension. The most egregious
example of this is the pension paid
to judges.
Circuit judges in Florida are
elected and receive a taxpayer-fund-
ed salary of $142,177. After 30 years
on the bench, a judge can retire with
nearly 100 percent of his or her
salary, plus other benefits. This tax-
payer-funded expense could easily

exceed $150,000 a year. This means
that after 20 years our retired 85-
year-old judge will have received
pension benefits worth at least $3
million. Judges don't contribute to
their pension plans so the full bur-
den is the taxpayers. Wow!
Judges also qualify for the
referredd Retirement Option
program. Under this program, a
judge can continue to work five
more years after "retiring." During
these five years the judge's pension
accumulates and is set aside in a
separate account at 6.5 percent inter-
est. Given the example above, a
"retired" circuit judge would earn a
annual salary of $142,177 and accu-


mulate nearly $142,177 annually in
retirement benefits at an interest
rate of 6.5 percent. so the total
amount will be over $285,000 a year.
Wow! Wow!
Last, jtidges also qualify for Social
Security benefits. Wow! Wow! Wow!

Dayspring Village
Dayspring Village has been a life-
saver for my son and our family.
Before his going there he had been
unable to obtain anything like the
care he needs for his severe mental
illness.


He has been thriving under the
care of the staff at Dayspring Village.
Not only is he doing well on his
medication, his whole life has
improved in every aspect. He is final-
ly receiving the expert care he
needs.
As a member of the National
Alliance On Mental Illness I have
worked with Mr. (Doug) Adkins for
many yeas and observed as he has
worked tirelessly in advocating for
all those who are mentally ill.
We are so very grateful to the
Adkins family and staff at Dayspring

I don't they have a right to cov-
erage? Conversely, how much
of the city's police depart-
S ment's budget is paid for by
S 'T .non-city residents? None. Fire
S and rescue the same, so too
recreation.
S Think I'm through? Not by
a long shot. How about the
DEBATE county's audacity, and the
city's acquiescence, when it
AND comes to city contributions to
TACKLE county projects? Examples:
City government and
city taxpayers should be
Ron Sapp shouting in appreciative
ecstasy when the county
agrees to pay $600,000 towards the expansion
of their library in Fernandina Beach, right?
Well, city taxpayers will match that number -
rightly so, I might add, but shouldn't someone
acknowledge that $168,000 of the county con-
tribution will be coming from city taxpayers
(remember, 28 percent of every dollar the
county spends comes from Fernandina
Beach), making their total contribution
$760,000?
The head of the county's economic board
recently appeared before the city commission
to ask for an annual city contribution of $25,000
for five years, or $125,000. This would help pay
for an industry recruitment initiative to popu-
late industrial areas near Bryceville and Yulee.
Fernandina Beach would benefit, or so the spin
went, when those distantly located families
came to shop downtown and eat at local restau-
rants. The city commission, un-blinking, readi-
ly agreed to allocate the $125,000. What? Never
mind that the benefits to the city were highly
speculative, totally unrealistic and purely fanci-
ful, but didn't the commission know that city
taxpayers are already paying 28 percent of the
county's economic development budget? Didn't
they know that city taxpayers were already pay-
ing 28 percent of this not-so-new recruitment


project? To pay $125,000 for a project that
you're already paying for at least 28 percent
of it and for a project that won't benefit city
taxpayers makes about as much sense as put-
ting up a brick wall in the heart of the Main
Beach parking lot to.house a garbage dump-
ster, a wall that is not only unsightly, but blocks
one's view of the ocean! Oh, wail ....
The above argument is valid for the
Council on Aging construction project and the
county's beach renourishment contribution,
also.
Know these 1ilL. I believe that a great
library is an integral part of any progressive
community and I support the current plans to
expand. The Council on Aging project is much
needed and we have to remain committed to
beach renourishment. But the funding of all of
those projects has to be fair and equitable and
right now it's not.
As the city and county finalize their budg-
ets, isn't it time that county and city commis-
sioners acknowledge the unfair burden placed
on city taxpayers and work towards finding
solutions that minimize the unfairness, or
make it go away completely?
Reality-based interlocal agreements that
reimburse the city for island-wide public safety
coverage, revenue sharing or project grants
that help pay for recreation programs and
adjusting the city's contribution to county proj-
ects, would be fair to city taxpayers. Doing
nothing is a choice, it's choosing to look away
from the unfairness, it's choosing to continue
the inequality and it's choosing to continue the
financial pain not only within the city budget,
but within financially stressed households
throughout Fernandina Beach.
I'm hoping for change, I'm hoping that the
county commission chooses not to look away
anymore and I'm hoping the city commission
at least raises the issue of unfairness and ways
to cure it. I'm hoping, but I'm expecting more
of the same.

Fort Clinch


at dawn


visiting friend to get
me to see things in my
own town in a differ-
ent way. This time, I have for-
mer Fernandina Beach resi-
dent and former News-Leader
reporter Peg Davis to thank
for this insight. She has
moved on to Atlanta where
she works as a producer for
CNN and was back in town
for a vacation. A working
vacation, that is. She wanted
to film the old fort in Fort
Clinch State
Park at
dawn, and
she knew I
was an early
riser. Did I
want to help
he her? Sure.
So, with
permission
WILD from the
WAYS park man-
agement, we
entered the
Pat park at 6
Foster-Turley a.m. one
recent morn-
ing and drove to the fort park-
ing lot. As we walked from
the fisherman's parking lot to
the fort it was still dark, but
there was enough reflected
light to see a small deer run-
ning across the grassy area,


and soon afterwards a rabbit
in nearly the same place.
Soon the black sky bled to
red, then orange and the
scene was perfect for filming.
From Peg's perspective the
light added ambiance and the
early hours removed the
potential of other people from
the scene that would jar with
the historical story she was
hoping to illustrate.
From my perspective, this
hour was great too. I often
walk at dawn from the north
end beach access to the fort,
but by the time I get there the
sun is high in the sky andI'm
hot and sweaty and ready to
turn back. This time, though,
it was a treat to see the sun
rise over the fort itself.
Soon enough, though, just
watching Peg watching her
camera got boring for me and
I strode off down the beach in
the reverse of my usual dawn
hike. Along the way I watched
a shrimp boat with its nets
spread-eagled and framed by
the orange and red dawn sky.
When it turned the corner out
of my sight I moved along, to
watch two early morning fos-
sil shark tooth collectors
slowly perusing the sand of
low tide between the rock jet-
ties. Although this is often the
best time and place to find

these fossils, this day these
people reported no luck, but
they didn't seem too unhappy.
It was dawn, it was a beautiful
day and we were all at a won-
derful location. Teeth or no
teeth it was worth the effort
just to be there.

photographed bright red
sponges washed up on the
shore, with small clams and
snails still attached to. them.
Out in the shallow water near-
by I watched what looked to
be a small shark with its dor-
sal fin showing, weaving just
below the surface. On top of
the range light near the shore
an osprey perched up high,
spotting for fish. Seagulls and
terns also congregated in
groups along the beach now
uncovered by the low tide,
looking for treats left behind.
At the edge of the beach I
startled two more deer that
sprang back into the woods
when they spotted me com-
ing.
For awhile I was alone
with nature and my thoughts,
with no other humans in sight


from the fort to the fishing
pier. But then I heard a
sound, an engine. What's
that? I stopped and looked
back the way I had walked
and a small vehicle was com-
ing from the fort area and
heading my way. A morning
turtle patroller from the state
park, no doubt. But, even bet-
ter, when the vehicle came
closer I recognized the rider.
It was Rhonda, my friend!
She and I talked for awhile
and then she headed on down
the beach to check on the tur-
tle nests on state park proper-
ty One nest needed to be dug
that day, she told me, and she
was expecting some visitors

It was time for me to rejoin

back and retraced my steps to
the fort. Peg had finished her
work, and got some footage
not only of the fort at dawn
but also that shrimp boat, and
even some film of deer along
the wood's edge. She was
happy, I was happy it was a
full morning. But it was only 8

had not yet begun, and here
we were already glowing in
accomplishment. It just does-
n't get any better than this!

U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw, center, and State Rep. Janet Adkins, left, rode the St.
Johns River Ferry with members of the "Keep the Ferry" efforts last week.


Ferry F
Business, civic and com-
munity leaders spearheading
efforts to keep the St. Johns
River Ferry in operation are
inviting ferry fans far and wide
to Ferry'Fest on Saturday, Aug.
25, from 1-9 p.m. at Mayport
Village.
"Ferry Fest is a way for
local residents and their fami-
lies to enjoy a day-long, fun-
filled celebration and at the
same time draw attention to
the ferry's wide popularity as
both a vital transportation
mode and a historical icon,"
said Keep the Ferry task force
member Elaine Brown.
The organization has been
working to raise both funds
and awareness of the ferry's
vital role, and Ferry Fest will
allow individual citizens to
demonstrate their support.
,As :,,US. 1. Rep. Aider;i-
Crenshaw noted in a meeting
with Keep the Ferry members,
a large gathering of support-
ers can speak volumes policy-
wise. "One of the really great
things about the ferry is the
broad base of community sup-'
port," he said, "and the more
supporters, the more attention
the city gives it, the state gives
it and the federal government"


est is


At


Crenshaw also renewed his
commitment to helping secure
federal funds for capital
improvements to the ferry and
the ferry slip.
Ferry Fest offers food
trucks, musical entertainers,
margaritas and beer/wine, a
special kids' area, and ghost-
storyteller Larry King. In addi-
tion, those attending can sign
petitions supporting the ferry.

vendors, events and parking

Supporters aireworking to raise:
funding to assure long-term
success.
The Florida Department Of
Transportation has not com-
mitted any financial support to
continue the ferry service,
which is a link in state road
A1A, where it crosses the St.
Johns River.
"We are not asking to save
a 'boat,' but rather the service


ag.25
it provides as the 'A1A
Connector' in a location where
a bridge is not possible," said
Val Bostwick, president of
Friends of the St. Johns River
Ferry. "The consequences of
losing the ferry will be reflect-
ed in immediate job and payroll
losses, loss, of sales tax rev-
enue, and the reduction of
property values and real estate
taxes all up and down the A1A
route. The financial losses
greatly outweigh the amount of
financial support requested."

WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 15.2012 NEWS News-Leadcr


Hos


_.thp LItBMI IIl)
:.. Kristin Dorais and Jeannie Wilkinson, left, associate care providers, demonstrate a TLC device that helps lift and
:.,..: .. ;,. move patients safely while reducing back injuries for staff. Nurses and other staff members, right, worked diligently
:. . i:.j': in teams to earn national recognition.






's nurses earn top recognition


Baptist Medical Center
Nassau's nursing staff has done
it again earned their profes-
sion's top recognition for qual-
ity nursing care, professional-
ism and innovation to enhance
patient care and safety.
The American Nurses
Credentialing Center awarded
the hospital Magnet re-certifi-
cation in June after a rigorous
review of data and documents
submitted by nursing leader-
ship, an onsite inspection and
interviews with dozens of hos-
pital staff, physicians, board
members and community rep-
resentatives.
"We're very proud of our
nurses for this accomplishment
and for the tremendous team-
work, commitment and coop-
eration throughout the hospi-
tal that make this high
performance possible," said
Stephen Lee, hospital president,.
Baptist Medical Center Nassau.


"Every employee at Baptist
Nassau has an impact on patient
care, and everyone shares in
our Magnet success."
Magnet status is much more
than an honor, said Barbara
Gingher, assistant administra-
tor. "It is a long-term commit-
ment to continuing education
and quality care that helps us
attract and retain the most qual-
ified professionals. We had to
show how we work in collabo-
ration with other staff, physi-
cians and patients and cite spe-
cific examples of our
innovations and success."
One success was Addicted
to Life, a smoking cessation pro-
gram started three years ago
when the hospital campus
announced plans to become
tobacco free. "Patients at that
time couldn't use tobacco in the
hospital, but they could go out-
side and smoke," said Marion
Mann, nurse hospitalist. "When


the whole campus went
smoke-free, we knew our tobac-
co-dependent patients would
have problems, so we devel-
oped a process Where every
patient who uses tobacco prod-
ucts is given counseling, free
medication and nicotine patch-
es to ease their tobacco depend-
ence in the hospital and, hope-
fully, realize that they can
manage without tobacco when
they go home."
Initially funded through a
Florida Departmn'ent of Health
grant, Addicted to Life received
a special commendation from
the Florida Hospital Association
last year.
The program has helped
hundreds of people each year
who are working to quit tobac-
co use. Some have been tobac-
co free for close to two years
now and are enjoying signifi-
cantly better health and enjoy-
ment in life. Taking the project


one step farther, the staff is now
also teaching patients with
chronic lung and heart prob-
lems how to better manage
their illnesses at -home and
spend less time ih the hospital.
Another example was TLC
(Transfer and Lift with Care), in
which nurses use -" ...i..i11,
designed equipment to more
comfortably and safely lift and
move patients. TLC reduces
patient falls, skin and shoulder
injuries and has significantly
reduced back injuries for
employees, said Employee
Health Coordinator Teresa
Carter. Because it has proved
so effective, every clinician
who works with patients is
trained in the techniques and
receives refresher training
annually.
Continuing education and
professional collaboration are
also important parts of the.
Magnet model, said Jennifer


Rowe, nurse educator. Evidence
shows that nurses with certifl-
cations and degrees provide bet-
ter care for their patients, she
said. With this in.mind, Baptist
Health offers incentives to nurs-
es to continue their education
and stay current with new prac-
tice standards and technologies.
A high percentage of our nurs-
es have bachelor's and
advanced degrees, Rowe said.
Plus, the hospital recently initi-
ated a medical-surgical steer-
ing committee co-chaired by a
nurse manager and a physician
to serve as a forum for nurses,
doctors and other clinicians to
come together to discuss inpa-
lient service improvements.
Only 7 percent of America's
Hospitals have achieved Magnet
recognition, and like nurses
new physicians are often attract-
ed by this quality designation,
Lee said. Of only 22 Magnet
Hospitals in Florida, five of them,


including Baptist Nassau, are
part of Baptist Health, one of
very few health systems nation-
wide where all of its hospitals
Shave earned Magnet status.
'This award acknowledges
the very high quality health
care.we have on this island and
in our sister hospitals in the
Baptist system," said William
Gower, member of the hospital
board of directors. "It distin-
guishes our hospital and sys-
tem from others, and as a board
member I'm very proud that
our local hospital has achieved
this recognition."
Just prior to earning Magnet
recognition, Baptist Nassau was
surveyed by The Joint
Commission and granted its
Gold Seal of Approval for adher-
ing to state-of-the-art standards
of patient care, including infec-
tion prevention and control,
leadership and medication man-
agement.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15.2012 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Garrett
Pelican of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can cbn-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip"program 1-800-78CRIME
- also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.


Gun brandished
A Callahan man was arrest-
ed Sunday morning at his.
Woodland Court home after
allegedly drawing a gun on his
neighbor during a dispute over
their shared property line,
according to a police report.
The neighbor told police he
was installing a wire on the line
that borders his property and
that of Kenneth Jay Shuman
about 10 a.m. when Shuman
told him he needed to move the
wire back six inches, police
said. Shuman, 50, then drew a
black handgun and said he
would "pop" him, the report
stated.
Another witness told police
that she was standing with her
back to Shuman when he
threatened to "pop" his neigh-
bor, but after turning around
she saw he had a gun pointed at
him, police said.
Contacted by investigators,
Shuman said he told the pair to
steer clear of his property and
admitted threatening to "pop"
his neighbor, the report stated.
Shuman told police he did not
have a gun, nor did he ever
point one at anyone, the report
stated.
Shuman, of 44100 Woodland
Court, Callahan, is charged with
aggravated assault with a dead-
ly weapon without intent to kill.


Hot dog
Nassau County Sheriff's
deputies cited a Yulee man
Saturday afternoon after he left
his mother's dog inside his car
in 87-degree heat for at least a


half hour while he shopped at
the Walmart Supercenter,
according to a police incident
report.
Responding to a citizen's
complaint about 4:40 p.m., a
.sheriff's deputy found several
people crowded around a blue
Nissan sedan with a small dog
inside, police said.
The little black poodle was
panting heavily, had saliva drip-
ping from its tongue and
"appeared to be in distress," the
report stated.
Police said the dog was
whining and barking and hop-
ping from the front seats to the
rear. Though the windows were
cracked slightly, the outside
temperature was 87 degrees
and the heat inside the vehicle
was "possibly over 100
degrees," the report stated.
After deputies asked
Walmart to page the owner, he
emerged to tell deputies he was
driving the car and the dog was
his mother's, the report said.
Police said dispatch received
the initial call at 4:40 p.m. and
the man returned to his vehicle
at 5:07 p.m., meaning the dog
had been left alone in the car for
at least 27 minutes.
The man was given a sum-
mons to appear before a judge
on a charge of animal torment,
a misdemeanor.


Pawn stars
A Fernandina Beach man
and his girlfriend were arrested
Friday morning after they stole
lawn care equipment from a
local business and pawned it in
Jacksonville, according to a
police report.
Police said Derrick Allen
Lester burglarized Myers Tree
Service on Russell Road in
FernandinaBeach and he and
Samantha Lee Pottorff of Yulee
then sold two stolen leaf blow-
ers to the Value Pawn Store in
Jacksonville.
Pottorff, 21, of 85287 Megan
St, Yulee, told investigators that
she and Lester, 23, of 2119
Russell Road, Fernandina
Beach, took two Stihl backpack
blowers from the business and
pawned them afterward. An
employee of Myers Tree
Service confirmed the blowers,
valued at $1,000 for the pair,
had been stolen, police said.
Police said footage, receipts


and serial num-
bers from the
pawnshop con-
firmed that ,-
Pottorff and
Lester had sold ,( )
the stolen blow-
ers.
The pair, in
custody at Garren
Nassau County
Jail on unrelat-
ed charges, was arrested about
9:40 a.m. Friday, police said.
Each is charged with grand
theft and dealing in stolen prop-
erty. Lester is also charged with
burglary.


Threats made
An inmate at Nassau County
Jail has been charged with
threatening a public servant
after an investigation revealed
his alleged plan to kill a judge
and his family, according to a
police report.
Witnesses told investigators
that Christopher Lee Baker, 37,
in jail for reportedly violating
his probation stemming from a
charge of trafficking in stolen
property, had made threats.
Baker told police he only
remembered saying "that he
would like to blow up the court-
house," but he could not
remember what he said about
the judge.
Baker, whose listed address
is the jail, has been charged
with threats against a public ser-
vant or family. His bond has
been set at $250,000.


Gunshots
A Fernandina Beach man
'was found dead in the water
south of Peters Point Park on
.Thursday after witnesses say
they heard two gunshots,
according to a police report.
Investigators found Noel
Eugene Kiernan of 2043
Neptune Court, about 7:40 p.m.
with a gunshot wound to the
right side of his head, police
said. Police said rescuers pro-
nounced Kiernan, 54, dead at
7:46 p.m.
One witness told police that
he and his mother were fishing
about 100 yards south, of
Kiernan when he heard what
he thought was a firecracker
exploding to his north. He told
police he saw the man shoot

The case remains under

Junk mail scams


The elections are here and
our mailboxes these days are
full of political leaflets. If you are
like me, the politicians that insist
on negative ads will not get my
vote this year. They seem to
have no substantive ideas of
their own so they talk bad about
their opponents, thinking that
is usually a sure way to sway
voters. Compared to the pliti- ,
cians' abu-zkie mi ailingI you marpi
feel that the other mail you
receive is more inviting.
Opening the rest of your mail
may open the door for the scam-
mers.
The scammers are aware
that most of us are throwing
away the junk mail and would
welcome what appears to be a
positive message from someone
offering a new benefit that saves
money. Recently we received
two almost identical mailings
concerning death benefits. You
are told that you can either sup-
plement your present Social
Security funeral expense bene-
fit or qualify for a new state reg-
ulated insurance program. Both
proposals are questionable and
if you were to respond to them
you may find that they are only
trying to part you from your
hard earned money. Both mail-
ings also have official-looking
front covers resembling gov-
ernment documents. One states
"Important Document Enclos-
ed" and the second has an
American flag and a Washing-
ton, 'D.C., return address on
Pennsylvania Avenue four
blocks from the White House.
The first mailing tells you in
an official-looking document
that Florida citizens are eligible
for a new state-regulated life
insurance program. The pro-
gram pays for final expenses for
just "pennies a day." Ifyou have
been previously turned down


., another way for you to handle

AMANDAREAM/COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS
Todd Gatlin steered the Hilliard Flashes to their first Final Four
appearance in 2012.


Gatlin, Flashes advance to state


AMANDA REAM
Community Newspapers

Todd Gatlin stood on the pitcher's
mound in Hilliard at the center of the
action, ready to win.
He was called in to close the game.
Melody Christian Academy had the
bases loaded and only one out. Awin
meant the Flashes were in the Elite
Eight of Class 1A.
"Bases loaded in the last inning
with one out and I came in to pitch.
That was very stressful," Gatlin said.
'That almost ended our season."
With two quick outs the Flashes
rushed the mound to celebrate with
Gatlin, whose impressive play earned
him most valuable player honors on
the all-Nassau County baseball team.
He shares the honor with Fernandina'
Beach's Ryne Casey.
"Todd's just one of those guys that
leads by example," Flashes Head


Coach Chad Wade said. "He was defi-
nitely a major factor in us getting to
state."
Gatlin appreciates the MVP
acknowledgement, but knows how
important it is to play as a unified
team. A few days after hosting Melody
Christian, which he called a team win,
Hilliard hosted its first-ever playoff
game at home, facing Lafayette MIayo.
For every run Lafayette hit,
Hilliard would soon even the score.
Down 2-3, Wyatt Carter stepped up to
bat. With two runners on base he had
two strikes against him and hit a
squeeze bunt.
'That was like the play of the sea-
son," Gatlin said. "We ended up win-
ning 5-3."
Unfortunately that was the Flash-
es' last win this year, falling 8-0 to
Uiri-inn (. :unily in the Final Four play-

Ryne Casey went 7-1 on the mound his senior season
at Fernandina Beach High School.

7-1 on the mound

BETH JONES
News-Leader

Ryne Casey won 14 games as a Pirate. The
hurler went 7-1 his senior year at Fernandina
Beach High School. As one'of the top-ranked
pitchers in North Florida, Casey boasted an
earned run average of 1.95.
Casey shares the all-Nassau County base-
ball team's most valuable player honors with
Hilliard's Todd Gatlin.
"Ryne has a great mound presence," said
Ken Roland, head baseball coach at FBHS.
"He had a great mix of poise, savvy and confi-
dence. Ryne' always wanted the ball and com-
peted every pitch. He did not have great
velocity but he made up for it with excellent
off-speed.
"Our team always loved playing behind
him because they knew he was going to pitch
to contact and work fast."
The Pirates went 19-9 overall and advanced
to the regional semifinal round, where they
were ousted by Episcopal in a 3-2 heartbreak-
er. Casey provided five innings 6f "solid pitch-
ing," according to Roland.
Rdland was proud of the team's record.
"Considering the quality teams on our
schedule, I believe this was a remarkable
achievement," he said. "Seven of our nine loss-
es came against playoff teams."
FBHS, the top seed, defeated West Nassau
12-2 in the District 4-4A championship game;
both teams advanced to the state playoffs.
Casey closed, striking out two Warrior bat-
ters.
The Pirates went on to defeat Bolles 9-3 in
the regional quarterfinal before losing to
Episcopal.
Case is joined on the all-county team by fel-
low Pirates C.J: Shelton and Thomas Guinn,
both seniors. Shelton hit.325 for FBIS with
28 RBIs. He was 3-2 on the mound.
Guinn led the Pirates with a .402 average.
He had 27 RBIs and four home runs. He had a
big night in the regular season finale; he had a
pair of home runs and a double for five RBIs.
He had three hits and five RBIs in the district

South jetty reds and tarpon


Amelia Island's best red bass fishermen,
you are better off placing your fishing rod
and reel in the rod holder and allowing
the red to catch himself," Robert Walker said.
"Lonnie Freeman taught me to leave the rod
and reel in the rod holder and allow redfish to
simply eat the baited hook,
resulting in a good hookset."
Walker fishes four (lays a
week at the'tip of the St.
Marys south jetty rocks while
targeting his favorite game-
fish, redfish.
Walker frequently fished
with Freeman and, during
their days of jetty fishing,
OUTDOORS they frequently caught their
share of red and black drum.
ery Lacoss Today Walker, at the
er across young age of 75, fishes with
his special breed German dog "Jobe." And if
you hear "Jobe" barking loudly it signals to
nearby fishing boats that his owner is hooked
up to another St. Marys red drum.
"I typically start my St. Marys redfish trips
by targeting the last hour of the falling tide at
the very tip of the jetty rocks while fishing on
the bottom for whiting with fresh shrimp,"
Walker said. "Most of the whiting I will clean
and later eat, but some are cut into redfish
baits for when the incoming tide is sure to
find excellent red bass fishing.
Walker also fishes with specially rigged
fishing gear and even the largest game fish
will have an extremely tough time breaking
Walker's main fishing line.
"I have my redfish reels spooled with a spe-
cial line that was once used to lower heavy
cameras down deep into the ocean," Walker
said. 'The 200-pound line has the same diame-
ter of 30-pound fishing line and I have never
had a fish break it off.
"I fish exclusively with a four- to six-ounce
egg weight threaded onto my terminal fishing
line and a four-foot section of 50-pound mono
leader. I also prefer a 5/0 to 6/0 long shank
hook that allows me to release redfish easily if
my bass is not in the slot size.
"If black drum, are running, I will fish with
chunks of fresh blue,crabs, which also makes
for excellent red bass baits."
Walker also noted that drum fishing at the
tip of the St. Marys jetty rocks has its ups and
downs. If you wish to hook up to one of Ame-
lia Island's favorite gamefish, the incoming
tide at the tip of the St. Marys rock jetties is
the time to fish for schooling redfish.
The St. Marys south jetty rocks have also
been producing excellent tarpon fishing this
summer with some of the best "silver king"
fishing action to come during the last few
weeks of summer.
"I prefer tarpon fishing with live mullet
under a float while anchoring my charter fish-
ing boat at the ocean side-of the St. Marys
south jetty rocks," Capt. Danny Flynn said. "I
also prefer the incoming tide as it pushes
schools of mullet and green back shad up
close to the low areas of the jetty rocks.
"Just the other day I guided Gary and
Kathy Berry from Statesboro, Ga., to several
red drum, a 50-pound cobia and a very excit-
ing 100-pound tarpon while fishing close to
the jetty rocks.


"I also got to watch Capt. Allen Mills' char-
ter fight a massive 180-pound tarpon that was
hooked at the south jetty rocks and later
released at the mouth of the St: Marys River.
Allen's charter played the tarpon on spinning
tackle for a solid fourhours.
"I will typically cast net menhaden with a
5/8-inch mesh, 10-foot cast net. One cast'with
this large net will afford for plenty of baits for
both chumming and tarpon fishing with.
However, if I can net mullet, live mullet are my

While the main species of game fish target-

GATLIN Continued from 1B
off game at Digital Domain Park in Port St.
Lucie.
Gatlin was once again on the pitcher's -
mound, his preferential position.
"I'm in control of every play when I'm
pitching," he said. "Everything's at my pace; I
control the outcome."
He threw four strikeouts in the first two
innings, relying on the outfield for an addi-
tional two outs. Nerves entered the game the
third inning, with an errant pitch for a walked
batter causing a series of mishaps that led to
runs for Union County and an end to the
Flashes' strong season.
"We had a good practice the day before
then it was the worst game we've ever played
on varsity," Gatlin said.
Though the final outcome was disappoint-
ing, the team made school history as the first
team to advance to the Final Four.
'Those were probably the best days of my
life," Gatlin said. "Nothing could ever com-
pete with that. The last three final games
before the Final Four game are really memo-
rable."
His family, which includes parents Bret
and Carie Gatlin of Hilliard and brothers
Jacob and Bryce, has supported him at count-
less games since he first picked up a bat at
age 4.
What does he love about the game?
"Everything."
He also plays travel ball for Coastal
Prospects in Jacksonville. When he's not
playing he's listening to his uncle preach at
North Hilliard Baptist Church, spending time.

pitching and batting skills.
"He's a great student and a great person,"
Wade said. "He's the hardest worker on our
team."
Gatlin's goal is to continue playing in col-
lege and he's already heard from several col-
lege coaches.
He's not leaning toward one school over
another just yet.
'There's been different schools mailing
me, but I'm still open," lie said. "1 haven't
even come close to deciding."
He credits his current coaches for making
those contacts.
'They always have helped us out with get-
ting colleges to look at us," Gatlin said. "They
even got rnohawks with us when we went to
state."
The team donned the haircuts for their
final game, earning commentary from the
announcers about the team pride they exhib-
ited.
'Our coaches told us at the beginning of
the season we had the talent to make it to
state," Gatlin said. "With any of our coaches
at any time, they're there for us any time."
The team set their sights on state early on
and Gatlin said team chemistry definitely
played a major role this season.
"Without them, none of this would have
been possible;" he said. "We had a bunch of
great defensive plays and the runs scored,
that helped us win games."
Team.lows didn't include the singling out
of players to lay blame on, as the players sup-
ported one another and solidified as a unit.
That chemistry is rare, Gatlin said.
"It was a year where we won't be able to
repeat how great it was.'

S- While watching John Daly make his long shot is quite entertaining to see, over-swing-
ing is a very common problem for the amateur golfer that creates a lot of havoc. The
S thought process behind taking a backswing beyond parallel is that a longer arc will
SU' create more clubhead speed. That is a true statement, but if you are all out of balance
in trying to swing so hard, is there really any benefit? Since everybody's mechanics
are different, only a half-swing may be perfect for you. The key to determining what
will produce the best shot in your arsenal is to swing back as far as you can turn your shoulders
without tilting them or losing your balance. The only way to get a true description of what the best
shot is for you is to practice and find out what feels right each time.

Local educator attends


prestigious institutes


For the News Leader

Local educator Julianne
French, who teaches the Gifted
Studies at Fernandina Beach
and Yulee high schools, was
honored by invitations to attend
summer institutes at Yale
University in New Haven,'
Conn., and The Museums'
Studies Program in New York
City this summer.
French was the only teacher
from Florida to attend these
institutes.
The Yale University program
focused on early 'American
architecture, early American
historical home sites, early his-
torical documents, and ceme-
teries and tombstones found in
the local churches. It included
tours of early American homes
and churches, as well as early
American cemeteries and
gravesites.
There were 26 participants
in this workshop from all
around the U.S.
The New York City muse-
ums' program focused on art
and art history from each of
four local museums: The
Museum of Modern Art


S(MOMA), The Metropolitan
Museum of Art (Met), The
Guggenheim Museum, and The
Whitney Museum. Students
studied the various visiting
exhibits as well as the perma-
nent exhibits. They studied the
artworks from a historical and
artistic perspective, as well as
sharing ideas with famous
artists and art historians of the
New York area. There were 40
participants in this workshop
from all around the U.S. and
Europe.
French hopes to incorporate
many new ideas into her Gifted
Studies programs from her
summer experiences. She is
also planning a trip to Germany
and Switzerland with her gift-
ed students during spring
break.
French currently has art-
work on display at The Cummer
Museum of Art & Gardens and
