Farmers mark(


MICI IAEL PARNELL
News- Leader
The Fernandina Farmers Market is
no more.
Instead, the Amelia Farmers
Market will open at the Shops of Omni
Amelia Island Plantation on Saturday.
That market will be open Saturday
mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. fea-
turing many of the same farmers, food
artisans and plant growers who for-
merly sold at the downtown farmers
market.
Market organizer Jan Smith sent
out a press release Monday and an
email Tuesday to "market support-
ers" announcing the change.
"To meet our shoppers' needs, the
search started about a year ago as the
market had outgrown its existing loca-
tion," she told supporters in the email.
"Finding a location with more con-
venient and accessible parking, a loca-


tion with more amenities for the shop-
pers to use while enjoying the mar-
ket and accommodating space in order
to provide more vendors that would
complement the market's current base
were key factors in meeting the shop-
pers' needs. We feel the village atmos-
phere at the Omni not only is a great
fit now but will also allow us to con-
tinue to grow and serve the commu-
nity."
There was no official response
from the city, which was notified by
telephone Monday of the impending
departure, according to City Clerk
Mary Mercer. Mercer said the city
has requested written communication
since it has a contract with the market
regarding special permits for the
weekly event.
"The farmers market will be
missed," said Tom Hughes, president
of the Historic Fernandina Business
Association, but he said efforts will


t skips

begin immediately to find a replace-
ment downtown. The city has been
approached in the past year by a group
that wished to start a market on prop-
erty located on 14th Street.
"Having outgrown Seventh Street,
the new location offers more open
green space, gazebos for seating,
room for additional vendors, accessi-
ble parking and amenities which will
make shopping at the market more
convenient and pleasant for every-
one," >.,i .l.-i to the press release,
issued Monday.
"While it is sad to leave downtown,
we are proud of our new picturesque
shopper-friendly setting where our
community can meet and mingle
while they shop for their just-har-
vested produce, gourmet foods and
beautiful plants," said Smith in the
press release.
"The Omni Amelia Island
Plantation was delighted to be


town

approached by the Amelia Farmers
Market (formerly Fernandina
Farmers Market) organizer, Jan
Smith, for consideration as the new
location for the market," according to
a press release issued by Omni on
Tuesday.
"Supporting the community has
always been a top priority for the
resort participating in local events,
fundraising for charities and schools
and utilizing local produce/seafood
in the on-property restaurants and
the Omni Amelia Island Plantation is
honored to continue the tradition of
the Amelia Farmers Market, while
doubling the space available for addi-
tional farmers to participate."
"The wait list of local farmers and
vendors wishing to participate in the
farmers market has grown over the
years," said Smith in that press

Local man treasures archeology


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader


Point is a very nice place to live,
:ias Leo McCormack, who moved to
S 'Ii' area from Jacksonville in 1973.
"At first we had horses and my son, Richard,
started the first horse and carriage business in
Fernandina."
McCormack's late wife, Shirley, worked for
the Nassau County Sheriff's Office for 29 years.
She passed away in April.
McCormack has always been intrigued with
archaeology and his love of all things ancient
came in handy when he made an extraordinary
discovery right on his own property.
"My son and I were digging post holes one
day and I struck something with a loud click. I
emptied the dirt on the pile and there was a beau-
tiful intermediate Arredondo spear point."
Archaeologists in Gainesville confirmed that.
the chert point was 6,000 years old.
Sarah Miller of the Florida Public Archaeology
Network said it is not uncommon to find spear
points that old.
"We have some of the oldest here in Florida,"
she noted.
McCormack's archaeological inquisitiveness
has led him to many Florida locations outside his
neighborhood. He has accumulated an astound-
ing collection of items discovered on diving trips
in various rivers between 1968 and 2004.
"I was fortunate to dive in the time that I did
because now it's illegal to keep any of the artifacts
you find."
This refers to the law enacted in 2005 that
states that removal of artifacts from sovereign
submerged lands will no longer be allowed and
removal of artifacts from river bottoms and other


'It's just something that's intrigued
me most of my life.'
LEO MCCORMACK

. sovereign submerged lands is a first-degree mis-
demeanor.
Since McCormack's treasures all pre-date this
law, he's entitled to keep them.
Among his treasures are Spanish coins he
found in Old Town in 1968 and pieces of eight he
discovered while diving 300 yards from the fort in
St. Augustine in 1970, 'in' ii r lig not permitted
today.
"Now things are different. I remember putting
my boat in the Ichetucknee River and driving all
the way up to Blue Springs, but you can't do that
anymore. We found a lot of fossil bones in
Ichetucknee and the Sante Fe Rivers. It was so
much fun."
The most amazing things he brought home
from a dive were the jawbones of a juvenile mam-
moth found in January 1970.
"The museum in Gainesville said this animal
was about six or seven years old when it was
killed, and it was definitely killed by Paleo-Indians
about 13,000 years ago."
The Paleo-Indians were the earliest known
inhabitants of the Americas. Museum officials
were able to be so definite about the date because
in addition to the jawbones, McCormack also
found the clovis point used to break open the
bone to get at the marrow.
These bones and spear points are more than
just artifacts to McCormack; they are mementoes
of countless dives he made with his son while sat-
isfying his boundless archaeological curiosity.


"I didn't go to college. I'm self-taught," he said,
pointing to a row of books atop one of his display
cases. "It's just something that's intrigued me
most of my life, especially when I started scuba
diving."

gas bill



at $851K

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
The Nassau County Council on
Aging is in danger of losing the fuel
source for its buses after falling five
months behind on gas costs owed to
Nassau County.
Due to what county staff called a
"cash flow issue," the organization,
which fills its vehicles at county pumps
and reimburses the costs later, has
accrued nearly $85,000 in unpaid bills
since March.
On Monday, Nassau County
Commissioners directed County
Manager Ted Selby to write the coun-
cil informing it of the outstanding bal-
ance and the county's intent to with-
hold future funding.
"This is kind of an ongoing thing,"
Selby said. "They have always had cash
flow problems ... because they get reim-
bursed by the state and federal gov-
ernments and their grants. The coun-
ty has basically carried their float a
number of times with regard to their
gas bills." .
Remedies proposed at the meeting
included requiring the organization to
put down a deposit, cutting off its
access to county fuel, deducting the
balance from funding the county gives
to the organization, or withholding any
future funding.
"You could shut them, off our
pumps and they would have to go get

Main Beach


Boardwalk


stymied
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader

A project to replace the Main Beach
boardwalk might have to be canceled
because the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection won't per-
mit it to be built on the proposed site.
City Manager Joe Gerrity informed
city commissioners Aug. 21 that the
project would not be permitted by the
state as submitted, and that the board-
walk is still badly in need of repair or
replacement.
"(The DEP) is not willing to let us
relocate (the boardwalk) 15 feet back,"
Gerrity said at the meeting. "They con-
sider where we're moving it still part of
the dune. They were very adamant
about not letting us permit this."
An Aug. 10 letter from Tony P.
McNeal of the DEP to the city and
engineering firm Gillette and
Associates called the city's permit appli-
cation for the project "incomplete."
In that letter, the DEP states it
would still require a full-size set of
plans and "adverse impacts" of the proj-
ect would need to be "eliminated or
minimized."
The letter further stated those
impacts included "existing structures"
that should be removed, "particularly
those seaward of the proposed struc-
tures." It also states that "no addition-
al footprint of structures on the dunes
is recommended."
The DEP has also recommended
changes to existing lighting to meet
wildlife habitat Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission guidelines

invited to stand along the rope line to wish the
released turtles goodbye and good luck.
Parking is available, but limited, at the vari-
ous Main Beach parking lots.
The three green turtles to be released were
all rescued from Florida waters. Like the log-
gerheads and leatherbacks that also nest on
Amelia Island beaches, green turtles are an
endangered species. The three turtles to be
released -pending weather conditions and the-
health of the turtles are Bault, stranded in
January in Huguenot Park in Fort George

birds in relationship to native
plants, and display before-and-
after photographs of convert-
ed residential yards.

their fuel somewhere else," Selby said.
Commissioner Barry Holloway, who
broached the issue, recommended taking the
money owed out of funding the county rou-
tinely gives to the organization. The council
receives quarterly installments of $60,000 from
the county for a total of $240,000, Selby said.
Though she would support doing that once,
commissioner Stacy Johnson said, she would not
be in favor of offsetting unpaid bills with coun-
ty funding in the future because she didn't want
to set a precedent for the practice.
"I don't want to be funding their gas bill,"
Johnson said. "That's not what we're here for.
We're funding the Council on Aging, not their
gas. I don't want to have a revolving credit
account for the (COA) for their gas."
In the future, Johnson said, staff needs to
make commissioners aware of outstanding bills.
Management and Budget Director Shanea
Jones told the board the organization has a
"cash flow" problem, and it has fallen behind in
the past due to its reliance on state and federal
funding. The council usually runs three or four
months behind on bills, Selby said.
When the council fell $74,000 behind in
November 2010, Jones emailed the organiza-
tion and it paid off the full balance that month,
she told commissioners.
Asked by commissioner Steve Kelley if the
county had ever carried over those unpaid bills
from one year to the next, Jones said it had.

- specifically for nesting sea turtles and their
hatchlings, which mistake manmade lights for
moonlight and get drawn further inland instead
of back to the sea.
The DEP also states that the project may
require permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission because of the pos-
sible presence of nesting shorebirds.
A plan for a new Main Beach boardwalk,
including sun shelters, was approved by com-
missioners in May. It appeared at'thattime the
plan had preliminary approval from the DEP and
that the city was going forward with seeking
state permitting. DEP officials had previously
told city staff a new boardwalk could not be
built directly over the old one because a dune is
forming around it that must be protected.

release. "We've been diligently searching for a
solution that would allow as many local busi-
nesses to participate as possible and chose the
Omni Amelia Island Plantation based on avail-
able space, parking and atmosphere. We could-
n't be happier with this new chapter for the
Amelia Farmers Market and encourage the
community to support their local farmers and
businesses." *
The Fernandina Farmers Market began in
2002 in Central Park downtown. It moved to
Centre and Seventh streets in 2006 after
receiving permission .p rpuity over nt
to close a street and make qther:accomitoia-
tions. The market has brought a swarm of
customers downtown each Saturday, many of
them walking from their downtown homes to


'That's not good," said Kelley, who added
that he could understand cash flow issues, espe-
cially with delays that usually accompany state
and federal grant funding.
According to county records, the organiza-
tion owes $20,300 for gas from March, $17,300
from April, $17,400 from May, $14,100 from
June and $15,000 from July.
Tom Moss, executive director of the non-
profit Council on Aging, told commissioners
earlier this year the agency would cut back on
services because revenues had declined. That
meant fewer Meals on Wheels for seniors, fewer
bus trips and other service reductions.
A new transportation center to accommo-
date the center's public transportation program
opened on the site of the former county hospi-
tpl on North 14th Street earlier this year. The
Council on Aging offers the only public trans-
portation system in Nassau County. The service
has buses or vans traveling daily scheduled
routes, and operates special routes for senior cit-
izens and disabled residents.
The Council on Aging operates two senior
centers, in Fernandina Beach and Hilliard, with
adult daycare services. It opened in 1974 and is
part of a national network of agencies, with
funding sources that include federal, state and
local grants as well as donations.
The Council on Aging generated $2.9 million
in revenue in 2010, according to its tax filings,
more than half of which $1.6 million -went to
paying the salaries of its 90 employees that year.

Commissioners at that time chose the option
of building a new structure two feet above
ground level and 10 to 15 feet west of the cur-
rent one. The entire project, if done in two phas-
es, was estimated to cost $178,000.
According to Asa Gillette, the city engi-
neering consultant, there are now "two options.
The first is to give FDEP what they want and
move the structures (boardwalk and sun shel-
ters) landward such that they are out of the
dune system (west of the toe of the frontal
dune). We could still do the crossovers to the
beach, but they would consist of lighter con-
struction to comply with frangibility require-
ments. The second is to have additional con-
versations with FDEP to convince them of the
arguments... for positioning of the boardwalk

As a volunteer at Emma
Love Hardee Elementary
School, Roberta J. Healey
works with the third graders.
"I help the low readers
improve their reading skills,"
she said. She's at the school
four days a week from early
morning until the end of day.
Healey and her late husband
drove from their hometown of
Beacon, N.Y., in search of a
future retirement home and
stopped at "every beach town
from about North Carolina
south."
"But when we got to
Fernandina, I said we had to
stop because I didn't want to
live in Florida."
That changed after the cou-
ple spent a week here and fell
in love with the city, relocating
permanently in 1991.
"I didn't want to live in a
beach town that died in the win-
ter and that doesn't happen
here. Everything I'm interested
in is here. It's a great commu-
nity."
Healey worked for the city
of Fernandina Beach for 10
years before she retired.

would volunteer," said Healey,

eternal diplomat and former
acting city manager Dave Lott
piped in numerous times to
assuage the situation and
defend the city.
"After several years of

Others felt differently.
After all, the Dumpster is
located on city property for

Not to be outdone, another

"Another bad decision as

Better tasting



tomato is goal


ofresearchers


University of 'lorida
GAINESVILLE Super-
market tomatoes that taste like
heirloom tomatoes are closer
to reaching grocery aisles as a
result of a discovery from the
University of Florida.
A team of researchers,
including members of UF's
Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences, have identified
the chemicals inside heirloom
tomatoes that make people
enjoy their taste, and the dis-
covery is expected to enable
them to create better-tasting
tomatoes for the commercial
market.
Heirloom tomatoes are old
varieties not bred for large-
scale production and prized
for' their true tomato taste;
something that many believe
has been lost. in commercial
tomatoes. The research was
detailed online in the May 24
issue of Current Biology.
"A big problem with the
modern, commercial tomato
is that growers are not paid to
produce a tomato that tastes
good," said Harry Klee, an
eminent scholar and profes-
sor in the UF/IFAS horticul-
tural sciences department.
"They are paid purely on how
many pounds oftomatoes they
put into boxes."
Florida is a top producer of
fresh tomatoes, and the state's
crop for 2010-2011 was valued
at $431 million..
To make the discovery,
Klee and a team of researchers
determined the chemical com-
ponents of nearly 100 tomato
varieties, including many heir-
looms; calculated the levels
present of each chemical iden-
tified; and then subjected the
tomatoes to taste tests. The
taste tests were comprised of
13 panels of 100 people who
rated each tomato's taste.
The researchers then sta-
tistically analyzed their data to
ascertain the chemicals that
were most abundant in toma-
toes people liked the most and
the least.
The research showed that
some chemicals that scientists
previously thought were
important weren't and some
they thought weren't, were.


For example, cis-3-hexenal
had long been considered to
be important to tomato taste,
mostly because it is so abun-
dant in many tomatoes.
However, it has zero cor-
relation to what people like,
Klec said.
On the other hand, gera-
nial, which was considered
less important, correlated
strongly with the highest-rated
tomatoes and enhanced sweet-
ness, the research showed.
Klee's research has begun
focusing on ways to transfer
the chemicals important to
taste into commercial tomato
varieties that produce higher
yields and have better disease
resistance than heirlooms.
Klee said during the taste
panels, administered by
Charles Sims, chairman of the
UF/IFAS food science and
human nutrition department,
several heirloom varieties
received high scores.
These included the cherry
tomatoes Cherry Roma and
Maglia Rosa; the somewhat
medium-sized Ailsa Craig and
the large German Queen
tomato. These heirlooms are
excellent candidates for trans-
fer of good flavor into com-
mercial varieties, Klee said.
Some of the chemicals
uncovered during the research
also have potential applications
outside of tomato breeding,
said team member Linda Bar-
toshuk, Bushnell Professor in
the UF College of Dentistry
and director of human re-
search at UF's Center for
Smell and Taste.
"Using statistical analysis,
we found volatile chemicals
that are contributing to sweet
independent of sugar,"
Bartoshuk said.
This could be important to
the food industry, she said, as
foods, such as fruit juices, can
be made to taste sweeter with-
out added sugar or artificial
sweeteners.
Eating tomatoes can be
part of a healthy lifestyle as
they are high in vitamins C
and A; are a good source of.
potassium; contain no choles-
terol or fat; have few calories
and sodium; and are high in
the antioxidant lycopene.


Having a successful meeting


Have you had a meeting
with a friend or family member
where you were surprised at
the emotions and resistance on
the other side? Of course, we all
have had these meetings. The
truth is even people with excel-
lent planning skills "wing it"
when having meetings and are
surprised with the result. In
order to have a good meeting
the other party has to believe
you are interested in their con-
cerns and are supportive of
their being successful, even
when you have reservations
around their ideas.
One example demonstrates
how important it is to draw out
the other party's concerns. I
was meeting one of my favorite
clients, the number two human
resources executive of a major
corporation. She wanted to dis-
cuss a coaching assignment
involving a division CFO. She
advised that there was another
company in the competition.
She asked me to review the
process, the fees, the timing
and who would be doing the
coaching.
I explained the particulars
and that Dr. Josh Ehrlich would
provide the coaching. We then
talked for a little while about
the needs of the candidate and
I advised that I would put every-
thing in a formal proposal.
However, as I watched and lis-
tened to'her I felt something
was wrong. Usually very enthu-
siastic, she seemed down and
worried. I didn't know if she
had a personal problem or had
a concern with something I
said, but I decided I had better
find out before I left. So, as I
was getting up to leave, I com-
mented that it looked like some-
thing was bothering her and
could I be helpful? She smiled
and stated, "You got me.
Anthony is no fan of Josh."
Anthony was her boss. So I
asked her why?
She proceeded to lay out
some reasons from a previous
assignment that I had forgot-
ten about."Not a problem," I
countered, "we can easily sub-
stitute Dr Jeremy Selekman,
whom you and Anthony have
worked with and, I believe,
like." 'That's great," she said,
and I knew we were in.
However, if hadn't asked my
final question, we probably
would have lost the assignment
and the meeting would have
been a failure.
On the other hand, some-
times you have to carefully plan
the events of a meeting. At P


Ballantine &
Sons earlv in
my career a
S'- pr o b le m
*, a occurred
.-; with a major
I Teamster
leader at an
upstate New
York branch
COACH'S and we could-
CORNER n't even get
..... the leader to
meet. This
Iloward same leader
Pines was also mak-
ing noise
about running against Frank
Fitzsimmons for president of
the International in the next
election that was a few days
away.
Needing Teamster
International support for a plan
I had developed, I went to see
another Teamster leader,
Johhny Hoh, who did a lot of
work with Joe Terratola (Joe
T), the president of Teamster
Joint Council #16 and vice pres-
ident in charge of the region.


Johnny immediately under-
stood the problem. He stated
that Joe IT. would be sympa-
thetic, since he was really
pissed off ;at this leader for
running against Frank
Fitzsimmons. However, we
needed to get Joe T's agree-
ment and he was in Miami at
the convention. Johnny was also
scheduled to go that night. He
-iIL.' -.I' 1 1 fly down the next
morning and come to a cocktail
party that Joe T. and his people
would be attending. At the
appropriate time, I would
approach Joe T. with my plan.
Johnny would get close enough
so that Joe T could reach out to
him if necessary. Johnny was
certain that Joe T. would have
no idea who I was or what I was
-.,i i,. about and would call
him over.
Sure enough, at the right
time I approached Joe T and
began my spiel. As Johnny pre-
dicted, Joe T began looking
frustrated and yelled, "Hoh get
over here. This young guy is
confusing me." Johnny came


right over and put everything in
perspective. Now Joe T under-
stood and immediately blessed
our plan with the following
caveat. "If that bastard was
doing his job meeting with good
guys like Howard, rather than
trying to screw us down here,
we would all be better off." It's
great when planning pays off.
The facts are all meetings,
whether with adversaries or
friends, are negotiations. Even
if you can't agree on the other's
goals or approach, if you can
Gi -, 1 out how to be supportive
of them personally, the meet-
ing still may turn out to be suc-
cessful.

Petco manager, store honored


HEATHER. PERRY
News-Leader


"It wasn't
just because
of me, it was
the staff and
customers,
too," says
general man-
ager Shellie
Tandarich,
named
Petco's
General
Manager of
the Year for
the entire
U.S.
HEATHER A. PERRY
NEWS-LEADER


It was an ordinary business
day and general manager
Shellie Tandarich was going
about her work at the Yulee
Petco store when she received
a phone call informing her she'd
been named Petco General
Manager of the Year.
"The vice president of Petco,
Nick Torina, called to tell me
and to let me know how proud
he is of me and my whole team.
We work very hard to keep very
high standards. It is such an
honor to be told we are leading
by example."
Tandarich and crew were
chosen out of 1,329 Petco stores


in the country.
Tandarich traveled to
Orlando to attend the annual
leadership summit to receive
her award, which included
money to throw a party for her
store employees.
"General managers from all
over the country were there and
they kept asking me where I'm
from. When I said Yulee, they
said, 'Where's Yulee?' so we put
Yulee on the Petco .map!
Everyone knows who we are
and are so proud of us."
The store was also honored
for receiving the most dona-
tions.
"We have six major donation
drives throughout the year and
we ranked number one in all of


them so I'm really proud of the
people of Yulee for their sup-
port," said Tandarich.
Petco policy prohibiting the
sale of cats and dogs is dear to
her heart.
"Our values are about adop-
tion first. We are here to help
our customers realize the value
of adoption, spaying and neu-
tering. We hold adoption events
every month and all Nassau res-
cue groups are welcome."
The Petco Foundation is also
high on Tandarich's list of great
things about her company.
"They are the largest non-
prolit L- .... 1 ,; .., in the coun-
try that gives money to shel-
ters and rescue groups. Anyone
can apply at Petco.corn."


When not busy at Petco,
Tanidarich volunteers with the
Jacksonville Humane Society,
works with Habitat for
Humanity and acts as treasurer
for the Boys and Girls Club.
The St. Louis, Mo., native
shares her home with husband
Michael. The couple has two
grown sons, Jeremy and Chris,
and a menagerie of rescued ani-
mal companions including three
dachshunds, three cats and a
bearded dragon.
Petco is located at 463713
State Road 200. Business hours
are 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-
Saturday and 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

WF DNESDAY. AUGUST 29.2012 OPINION News-Leader


[ Power brokers contr(


Well, the first round of campaigning and
elections are over and if you're a thinking politi-
cal observer and a devotee of representative
democracy you can't help but be alarmed by the
obvious facts and trends.
I can't remember an election when so many
people, even into the final days, couldn't figure
out who to vote for. Not surprising when you
consider the following:
Voters with a core ideology came up
empty when searching for a "responsible candi-
date" one that actually discussed the issues
and made you aware of their positions on them.
More than ever before an army of "shallow can-
didates" rained countless time-tested platitudes,
most if not all of them empty and mindless: "I'm
more conservative than my opponent."
Opponent "No, I'm the real conservative in
this race." First candidate "No, I'm the real
conservative." On and on it went until most
thinking voters went running for the nearest
barf bag.
Given the above, it was interesting that no
candidate, at least those in the thousands of
political ads I saw, invoked the name of former
President Ronald Reagan and their mutual ideo-
logical, if not genetic, similarities. In former
campaigns the viewer or reader-couldn't go 15
seconds without hearing something like, "I'm
the real Ronald Reagan clone in this campaign."
Opponent- "No, I'm the real Ronald Reagan
clone." See paragraph above. Ronald Reagan, it
seems, has.been thrown into that category of
pariahs Republicans call moderates, and when
using that term in the proper context be sure to
include the necessary spewing, spitting and
contorted facial expression.
Who spearheaded this "Reagan the mod-
erate" movement, well, none other than former
Florida governor Jeb Bush. Jeb, at some point,
said something like, "Ronald Reagan couldn't


I get nominated today.".Some
say that Jeb was actually
bemoaning the fact that that
Moderates again, remember
the spewing and spitting-
-: ( < were outliers in the modern
Republican Party. I say, given
.,r the former governor's
extremist record, baloney.
DEBATE Why all this talk about
DE AJTE jeb?'Well, it seems that he has
AND not ridden off into the South
TACI(LE Florida sunset like most
1i,,, ;,, Floridians had
.- hoped. No, political Jeb is
Ron Sapp alive, well and, this is the
scary part, active in North
Florida politics. So what? Well, this is where the
representative democracy part comes in, I don't
want someone to go to Tallahassee or
Washington who listens intently as political Jeb
whispers in his or her ear; I want someone, an
independent someone, to go to those places and
actually represent his or her constituency. A
radical thought, I know, but I continue to hope.
Is political Jeb really all that bad? Well, if you
are an environmentalist or teacher, and I am
both, proudly, then yes. For many years I've
said that if you look in the encyclopedia (a for-
eign term if you're under 50) under "worst gov-
ernor in the history of Florida," you'll find his
picture. Caveat: that Was before Rick Scott.
Under the cover of job creation and a desire
not to be labeled a socialist, political Jeb began
the dismantling of Florida's growth manage-
ment laws and the protective agencies that
enforced them. Under the cover of accountabili-
ty, privatization and a desire not to be labeled a
socialist, political Jeb began the destruction of
Florida's public school system. So, to have a
political Jeb surrogate go to Tallahassee or


)l politics

Washington not only undermines representa-
tive democracy, again, in my opinion, but it justi-
fies my continued cynicism and skepticism
regarding the current state of political affairs.
One person, more cynical and skeptical than
I, said the other day, "What difference does it
make which gang of right-wingers goes to
Tallahassee, the outcome is always the same,
nothing changes." My cynical self says that's
true, but my optimistic self I admit that part of
myself is getting smaller and smaller: the voice
farther and farther away still longs for that
better (lay, a day when responsible candidates
tell us not only why we should vote against that
other candidate, but when we should vote for
them. A day when candidates explain to the
voter what makes up their core set of values
and where they stand on key issues. A day
when campaigns are not spun around mindless
platitudes and focus group-tested sound bites
and "power phrases," but around issues and
ideas.
A day when this is worth a separate para-
graph, I believe candidates value independ-
ence and separate themselves from power bro-
kers and political puppeteers. When they look
forward to going to Tallahassee, or to city hall
or to the Nassau County commission cham-
bers, and representing, to the best of their abili-
ties, the citizenry, the people who put them
there.
As an environmentalist, a teacher and a
proud liberal, I still hold out some tiny bit of
hope that our agenda, our issues and our ideas
might somehow be considered, at least consid-
ered in the political decision-making process.
As it stands now, that won't happen unless one
of the political puppeteers, the power brokers
gives their OK, and that is a political sin in a
representative democracy.
Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


School paddling ,
As a teacher with 40 years experi-
ence in Maryland and Florida, I was
appalled to read in the News-Leader
that paddling is still a state-sanctioned
form of discipline in Nassau County
("Local schools spank students," Aug.
22). Even with parental consent, this
response to behavioral problems
teaches both students and parents the
wrong lessons: to students, it says
physical violence towards another per-
son is an acceptable way to handle
problems; to parents, it says physical
punishment (beatings?) must be OK
because even the schools do it.
With the number of abused chil-
dren at home and sometimes at
schools a fact, this physical discipline
by schools would only seem to encour-
age(m nre vi,'in mce ,ll -ide of the:
school and in thi. line. Martin Luther
King wrote, "Violence merely increas-
es hate... increasing deeper darkness
to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that. Hate cannot
drive out hate; only love can do that."
Please, Nassau County parents and
educators, teach your children well
and be role models for the people you
want them to become.
Kathy Brooks
Fernandina Beach

Permission to paddle
I was stunned to read the article
about paddling of students in the Aug.
22 edition of the News-Leader ("Local
schools spank students"). This arti-
cle addresses the means by which dis-
cipline can be meted out by a teacher
or principal of schools in Nassau
County. Next to the article is a list of
infractions for which students last year
received paddling.
I write to state my opposition to
paddling of students as a means of dis-
cipline. My experience as a pediatri-
cian at the start of my medical career
brought me into difficult situations of
child abuse. I served for two years as
a pediatrician on the Child Protection
Team of Adams County, Colo. In my
opinion, the use of a paddle to admin-
ister discipline constitutes abuse, phys-
ical and emotional. Paddling evokes
humiliation for the child and indirect-
ly for the parentss. It is an assault on
the student's dignity.
State law allows paddling without
parental consent. I strongly oppose
paddling of students. Therefore, I con-
clude that there is no place for a prin-
cipal to send out a "permission to pad-
dle" letter to parents at the beginning
of the school year. I do believe the
parents) should be integrally involved
in how the student should be disci-
plined for alleged infractions of school
rules. Every attempt to contact the'
parents) is in order before any sig-
nificant discipline is undertaken.
Some of the infractions listed
appear to reflect behaviors considered
to be typical and without intended mal-
ice for pre-teen and teenagers.
Examples include bringing a toy to
school and hallway misconduct.
Whether insubordination is cause for
being disciplined is certainly a judg-
ment call. Corrective action for cheat-
ing can be conducted in a way that is
educational for the student, rather than
punitive.
To address my deep concerns
about paddling in schools, I propose
two means to abolish it. I urge the
members of the Nassau County School
Board to remove the option for pad-
dling as a form of discipline in county
schools when they review this policy
in 2013. I strongly urge the Florida
Legislature to abolish that part of the
Education Code in Title 33 of the state
statutes regarding the use of corporal
punishment. I believe paddling has no
place in school discipline in the 21st


century.
Thomas C. Washburn, M.D.

Politics or pride
We can all agree that during elec-
tion times there are too many signs
touting candidates, and yes, I agree
that the candidate that put the sign
up should be the one to take it down,
not the county or city employees on
the taxpayers' dollar ("Politics," Aug.
22).
But they do need to have some
signs so you know who is running,
and yes, they have to spend money to
get their ideas out to the voters. Most
of the local voters never go to the
debates by local candidates, and most
of the candidates use their own money
tog.. I th. ir wiird -.m .
I teel sorry lor you that having to
vote was so annoying to you, having to
deal with the hassle of all those annoy-
ing people. Most adults that don't vote
don't because they either don't like
the candidates or just don't care
because they are too busy, and that is
their right. As for the young adults,
well, most aren't even registered to
vote and most just don't care. I have
worked with many over the years and
have talked to them at length about
voting and how important it is to have
their voices and concerns be heard. So
your theory that people holding signs
at the polling places discourages these
people is so far off base it's sad.
And your phrase "flag wavers,"
wow, I find this offensive, ignorant and
just downright rude. I've heard that
phrase before from those who really
don't care for.this country, I even got
into an argument with a friend of mine
over that phrase. My father, my uncles,
my sister and many friends fought for
the right.so we could wave the flag
proudly with pride. Would you prefer
that they burn it, stomp on it or dis-
respect it in any way they could? If
you don't like the flag don't look at it.
No one is forcing you to fly the great-
est flag for the greatest country in the
world. So don't gripe on the rest of us
for being proud of our flag, and the
honor and privilege to vote for those
who will listen to our voices.

Freedom of choice
Re: "Outraged," Aug. 22.
"We have lived in Fernandina
Beach for seven years. It greatly
embarrasses my husband and me to
think a business would be so insensi-
tive as to offend anyone."
Wow. What could possibly have
been on that shirt? Well, it probably
wasn't obscene. We have laws against
obscenity in public. So it must have
been offensive to them based on their
heritage, religion, point of view,
thought process or civil understand-
ing, but not obscene.
I understood that the United States
of America provided freedoms to the
people that most other countries do
not.
Reading the Bill of Rights will
enlighten most of us that nowhere in
the writings does it express your right
not to be offended. Having freedom of
speech, the press and religion, as stat-
ed in the First Amendment, absolute-
ly insures that someone will be offend-
ed. It is our right.
I get offended when I see a vehicle
with U.S. military base stickers on the
windshield and flag decals on the back
of the vehicle, or hanging from the
rear view mirror, from another coun-
try.
I get offended when I see words
that I grew up with, i.e., Christmas
vacation, removed because it offended
someone.
I get offended when I hear the polit-

ical rhetoric of promise from politi-
cians seeking election that we all
acknowledge the fact that we expect
them not to come true.
I get offended when citizens of this
country are trying to turn a "melting
pot" of cultures and backgrounds into
a non-offending puddle of clones that
walk around being worried that they
may offend someone.
I recently read where the U.S. State
Department warned Russia about
"freedom of expression" regarding a
female singing group and their prison
sentence for hooliganism. Don't we
have freedom of expression? As long
as it is not obscene we do, but being
offensive, well that is what being part
of America is about.
Being American means we all have
rights, including the right to be offend-
ed by someone else's point of view,
beliefs, political affiliations or religion.
What is my point? So if the shirt is
offensive, the speech is offensive, the
remark is offensive, then shop some-
where else, vote for someone else and
listen to different radio or TV station.
After all, we have freedom of choice,
so use it.

Broad brush
In response to ("Tea Party" Aug.
24), no woman, Republican or other-
wise, agrees with the crackpot Akin.
But to paint the entire Tea Party with
that brush ignores their purpose, i.e.,
fiscal reform. You can be as proud a
Democrat as you want to be, but
Obama and the Democrats cannot con-
tinue to spend money like drunken
sailors. Even China is refusing to fund
our debt so now we are printing our
own money, buying our own debt and
doing the same when the note comes
due. Even someone like me, just man-
aging a household, can see the loom-
ing problems.
There was a global depression less
than a hundred years ago and there
can be another one. Americans live in
a fantasyland if they believe America
is too big or important to collapse.
Many others have gone down that
path. Just take a look at California the
big welfare state. Three municipali-
ties have gone bankrupt and the state
may well follow them. Agriculture can-
not find labor even illegal immigrants
don't want to go to California now.
Taxes are drying up as businesses


and the tax base have moved out. We
have all seen or read many times that
where California goes the rest of the
U.S. follows. This is one time I hope
and pray we don't.

Partisan bickering
Kudos to the writers of'Tea Party"
and "Clear choices" for expressing
their thoughts and opinions in the
Aug. 24 issue of the News-Leader. Both
made some good-sense observations
and recommendations we might do
well to heed during these difficult
times ahead. I do not necessarily agree
with all aspects of their viewpoints
and, as such, should like to add a few
of my own.
I am not an Amelia Island native,
but feel like one, as this has been
"home" since 1995. It's incredible the
many changes, challenges and obsta-
cles that have been confronted by the
citizenry of Fernandina Beach and
Nassau County many of which would
overwhelm even many large city
dwellers.
I was raised in a very small North
Carolina town, and when growing up
the mere mention of "Republican" was
considered blasphemy. Some would
go so far as to consider the word much
in the same context as racial integra-
tion (before 1960). If your great-grand-
daddy was a Democrat, then his imme-
diate family had to be all Democrat.
The same held true for his son and his
son and his son. The last "his son"
would be me. My point being that dur-
ing much of the 20th century, at least
1900-1952, most Democrats would be
categorized by (the writer of "Tea
Party") as "mindless robots." I'm not
so sure but what many individuals
within families still adhere to this polit-
ical philosophy, be them Democrat or
Republican or perhaps "mindless
robots."
Gen. Dwight 1). Eisenhower was
the nominee of the Republican Party
in 1952. To my utter astonishment, I
later learned my dad became a "clos-
et Republican" and voted for Ike, and
maybe for other Republican nominees
thereafter. He passed away as a life-


long registered Democrat only'
because his dad and granddad had
likewise done the same. I wonder if
that was all bad?
The ('Tea Party') letter would have
made a greater impression on me if he
had started the paragraph "I am a
proud Democrat" with "I am a proud
American." I have no earthly idea how
he defines "proud Democrat" or, for
that matter, how "proud Republican"
might be defined. I know what it
means to be a loyal, proud American
- no definition or explanation required.
I moved here from a state where
being a registered Democrat or
Republican doesn't have the same sig-
nificance. There you were referred to
as an eligible voter and were not
restricted by party affiliation, thus
allowing you to vote for the person of
your choice. Upon moving here I was
told I must register by party and dis-
covered my choices in Nassau County
would probably be much greater in a
primary election if registering as a
Republican.
I agree that Rep. Akin (R-Mo.)
made an inexplicably stupid comment
and should either step aside or be
defeated by his Democrat rival. I like-
wise agree about the comment about
Harry Reid's stance on Romney's lx:r-
sonal taxes. It's none of Reid's or any-
one else's damn business. One obvious
omission is Vice President Joe l3iden's
comments before a predominantly
black audience in Halifax, Va. Biden
said, "Listen, y'all. We are going to
unchain you, ya hear!" and then closed
by saying, "It's nice to be here with you
in North Carolina." Poor fellow didn't
even have a clue which state he was in
and should have been led from speak-
er's platform in a white straitjacket.
Too bad we can't act like we are
Americans at all times and do what's
right for this great country. However,
partisanship, bickering and occasion-
al violence have always been a part of
the culture of these United States. This
was true before and has been. so since
the signing of the Declaration of
Independence and the development
of and signing of the United States
Constitution. So what's new?

Fleeing and eluding
A Jacksonville man was
arrested Thursday on charges
of fleeing and eluding after he
fled deputies the day before,
according to a police report.
Alger Lynn Sluder Jr.
offered over the phone to turn
himself in after fleeing deputies
with their lights' and sirens
active a clay earlier, police said.
Sluder, 27, told deputies he
knew he should not have run
from them, the report stated.
Sluder fled after he was spot-
ted driving a green Honda
sedan south on US 17 in Yulee,
police said. After speeding up,
police said, Sluder swerved
abruptly off the road toward a
marsh, where he took off into
the woods.
Police said Sluder has 10
suspensions on his license and,
one cancellation. Many of the

suspensions stem from his fail-
ure to appear or pay traffic fines,
according to county records.
Sluder has been charged
with fleeing and eluding police
and driving with a suspended
license. He remains in custody
at Nassau County Jail on a
$55,000 bond.

Meth arrest
Deputies arrested a man and
a woman on drug charges Aug.
22 after the pair arranged to buy
cold medicine so they could
cook methamphetamine,
according to police reports.
Joshua Lee Freeman and
Beth Grigg Johnson, both of
Fernandina Beach, were arrest-
ed outside of a Yulee business
about 9 p.m. after buying pills of
pseudoephedrine, a cold decon-
gestant sometimes used in the
manufacture of illegal drugs,
from a police informant, the
report stated.
Freeman, 34, and Johnson,
44, of 1112 North 15th St., told
the informant they planned to
use the medicine to cook
methamphetamine, an illegal
stimulant, police said.
Each was charged with
unlawful possession of listed
chemicals with intent to manu-
facture a controlled substance.
Both have since been released
from custody.

Hot wheels
Police arrested a Fernandina
Beach teen Aug. 20 after he
tried to steal a car from the park-
ing lot at the YMCA, Police
Chief Jim Hurley said in a press
release.
The 16-year-old took the
keys from a workout area at the
facility and got inside the car
before the owner's daughter
interrupted him, Hurley said.
Police said the teen fled on a
bicycle, which they say was
stolen from the Residence Inn
on Sadler Road the night before.
Once in custody, the teen
confessed to the bike theft and


the attempted car theft, Hurley
said. He also admitted to other
thefts in the area, including that
of Apple iPads and other com-
puter accessories, the chief said.
He has been charged with
two counts of grand theft and
one count of attempted grand
theft auto, Hurley said.

Shot misfired
A Nassauville man was hos-
pitalized Aug. 22 after his gun
jammed and a bullet exploded,
sending shrapnel into his nos-
tril, when he tried to shoot a
large snake in his yard, accord-
ing to a police report.
The 45-year-old told police
that he retrieved his gun, a
9mm pistol, after spotting a
large snake in his backyard.
When he tried to fire the gun,
though, it jammed and would
not discharge the round, police
said.
As he tried to clear the
round, it exploded and sent a
piece of shrapnel into his right
nostril, the man told police.
Police said he was treated by
rescue personnel at Fire Station
70 and transported to Shands
Jacksonville for an MRI.

/ Seniors vs Crime

SA Special Project of the Florida Attorney General




Choosing a reputable



tree service company


Once again Nassau County
has a good chance of experi-
encing heavy rains and high
winds from an approaching
storm system. The first two
storms of this season came
early but since then there has
been little activity. The 2012
Atlantic hurricane season offi-
cially ends on Nov. 30 so
there are still three more
months in which to anticipate
potentially serious weather
conditions.
By the time you read this
.column, we will have had
more storm-related weather.
Therefore you may be prepar-
ing to hire a tree
removal/trimming service to
return your property to nor-
mal. As Seniors vs. Crime pre-
viously warned, there are
scammers waiting for an
opportunity such as this to
take advantage of your trou-
bles. One scam we recently
heard about is to quote you a
price for a per-limb basis but
mislead you into thinking it is
for the entire tree. Make sure
the price you are quoted is for
the entire job.
Senior citizens are preyed
upon more often than others
by less than honorable con-
tractors. Most of these com-
panies are "new starts," not
the long-established local
ones with good reputations.
You are usually made aware
of the new ones by flyers they
leave on your door or in your
mailbox. Following a major
storm these companies often
drive through neighborhoods
and will go to your door to
solicit business. Their servic-
es may be cheaper than other
companies that are licensed
and insured, bonded and
carry workers' compensation
insurance (Florida non-con-
struction companies are
i I-qii J l., ai n ,,rkers'
Cmp ii, n -.Ih i II hy employ
four or more workers).
Workers' compensation is
critical because if one of the


workers is injured on your
property you could be held
responsible for a lifetime of
medical expenses. The hassle
of court costs, attorney
expenses and missed work
are not worth the aggravation
even if the case goes in your
favor. You cannot afford to
risk your home and family's
future by trying to save a few
dollars hiring a contractor
without proper insurance. In
case damage to your home or
other property occurs during
the work, liability coverage is
also very important.
We strongly suggest that
you insist the tree service
company ask their insurance
carrier to send you a letter
stating the coverage through
the U.S. Mail. The insurance
company will not mail proof of
coverage unless it is in force
as that would be mail fraud. If
the tree service brings you a
copy of the coverage while
they are cranking up the
chain saws in the back-
ground, it is too late for a
proper review.
There are a few national
organizations that reputable
tree service companies
belong to and that would indi-
cate a quality company:
International Society of
Arboriculture (ISA),
American Society of
Consulting Arborists (ASCA)
and the National Arborist
Association (NAA). If you find
that the company you are get-
ting a quote from belongs to
one of those organizations,
you are probably assured of a
professional job. If you have a
single project to do it may not
be that important. If you plan
on using the company long-
term, check out their profes-
sional memberships.
The level of service the
t..Uinipany, acrnets (i provide
c'in dia sti.'ll*y impact the
price. If you agree that the cut
wood can be left on your
property instead of hauled


off, the price will be lower.
Also, if you are willing to
accept your yard being left in
a less than pristine condition
after the work, costs to
remove a tree will be less.
You should decide exactly
how you want the tree dis-
posed of and your property
left and then agree on the
price.
Prior to the work starting,
take photographs of every
portion of your property like-
ly to be impacted by the work.
If something is damaged, it
will be easy to determine the
condition just before and after
the work. Do not pay for the
work until it is completed to
your satisfaction. Review your
photos to ensure the property
has been returned to the level
,of care you agreed to in the
contract.
Most importantly,
remember that the value of
your property can be
enhanced by quality tree
work. Poor quality work will
decrease the value of both
your and your neighbors'
homes. Be careful and select
a reputable and professional
company for emergency tree
work and for your long-term
tree care.

.- .just never know
'. hat to expect here
on Amelia Island
when you venture a
bit off your regularly beaten
track. I should know this by
now, but I'm still learning. A
few days ago I was reminded
once again about the joys of
living here, the unexpected
and unusual still here to be
found.
It was a sign, "Local
Honey," that drew me down a
dirt driveway at 522 Citrona
Drive just opposite Fernan-
dina Beach High School. I've
been noticing that sign for a
few weeks now, and one day
when running errands I decid-
ed to take a jaunt down the
road and see about the honey.
Bees, I expected, maybe a sin-
gle beehive in someone's sub-
urban backyard.
But no. What I found
instead were lots of beehives
all situated in a huge yard
adjacent to the Egans Creek
Greenway, with a sweeping
view of the salt marsh, a view

WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster-Turley


of sky and
water and
herons and
hawks, all
the way
across to the
other side.
The back-
yard had its
own natural
freshwater
source, an
artesian-
well-fed
spring and
pond with
water acces-


sible to all creatures that seek
it.
And not only did I find this
setting, I found David Bert
Austin, a Fernandina native,
roaming here in his natural
habitat, a bit of Old Florida
that he has nurtured and
maintained for six or so
decades. Bobcats, otters, deer
and raccoons regularly visit
his spring and pond, a reliable
source bf drinking water near
their saltwater marsh habitat.
The duck decoy there some-
times:brings in wild ducks to
linger f.r awhile during their
iiier -ii' .ns Bird feedlets with
seeds and hummingbird feed-
ers with nectar draw their own
clientele too.
For years David has stud-
ied beekeeping, but just three
years ago he purchased his
first starter set of hives and
began his new hobby. His
bees have thrived, and the
colonies have multiplied.
Although he didn't tell me
how many hives he has in
operation I could see at least
25 of them, and he said more
were out of sight in the woods
beyond.
David's bees have not (yet)
been affected by the colony
collapse disease that has
plagued bees throughout the
United States. According to
recent studies, populations of
four once common bee
species in the U.S. have
dropped by 98 percent in the
past 20 years and many bee-
keepers have lost their
colonie-s Reductionr in bees
reduce the pixllinarion of most


of the crops we humans
depend on.
David is hoping that the
location of his bees on
Amelia Island, isolated from
mainland populations and pro-
tected by offshore ocean
breezes will help protect them
from collapse. David's bees
forage widely around the
island and, with the wildflow-
ers of Egans Creek Greenway
and Fort Clinch State Park
nearby their diet includes
many native nectars. This wild
diet adds compounds to the
honey, he says, that helps peo-
ple with allergies to local
plants.
This year the rains in May
delayed the honey production,
but now it is at its peak and
he's got plenty of honey to sell
in $5, $10 and $20 bottles.
Now that they have tried this
honey, many people are com-
ing back for more. You can
get some soon, if you just stop
by his house most any time of
day and he'll be happy to help
you.
If you do meet David,
though, you will find that his
bees are only a small part of
the story. David, it turns out,
is a Vietnam War vet who
learned his way around jun-
gles during his tour of duty
Now he uses these same skills
for months on end when he
stays at his other residence in
the hinterlands of Venezuela
'in the Amazonian rainforest.
Retired local judge Bill
Parsons first brought David to
that community, and now he's
become part of it, helping the
church there and contributing
food to the people.
David is here in
Fernandina at the moment
babysitting his young grand-
son and tending hi bees. So,
if wild honey attracts your
fancy, now's the time to get
your supply. But go soon,
before the supply gives out or
David moves to Venezuela;
either possibility is pending!

Soft drinks fueling speedy sports


If you happen to attend a
Jacksonville Jaguar foot-
ball game, you can't help
but notice the number of
Pepsi products that are sold
and the outstanding visibility
when televised on national TV
as a major sponsor.
Certainly outdoor and
indoor sports, such as soccer,
hunting, tennis, fishing and
virtually any sport that works
up a thirst, require refreshing
and energy-filled drinks.
Beverage companies have
showcased, advertised and
sponsored sports that are
both popular and attract a lot
of visibility. Needless to say,
beverage sales are not only
driven by their popularity as a
satisfying drink, but also how
well they are showcased to
the general public.
Coca-Cola was recently a
major sponsor for the 2012
Summer Olympics, which
was televised all around the
world. This national visibility
had to increase sales for
Coca-Cola products.
Bass pro Clark Wendlandt
is sponsored by Mountain
Dew and weighing in a big
catch of largemouth bass dur-
ing a televised bass tourna-
ment certainly increases the
sales for Mountain Dew.
Tournament fishermen
pour diet Mountain Dew into
the mouth of a hooked bass
to stop the bleeding.
My son, Terry D. Lacoss,
and I are sponsored by Pepsi
and have, in many cases,.
poured Pepsi on our lures to
attract tournament winning
fish.
Also the sugar added to
beverages gives athletes a
boost of energy. I have to
admit after a few hours of
tournament fishing, I rely on
a.cold bottle of Pepsi Max to
give me the needed energy to
fish my entire day of tourna-
ment fishing.
On Sunday I fished with
Jacksonville's Pepsi market-
ing director Mark Alexander
and sons Owen and Jacob.
After departing from the
Fernandina Harbor Marina,
we found a high falling tide in
'he uprp,:i reaches of the Bells

A strong east wind made
anchoring our 24-foot Triton
bay boat difficult as the wind
was blowing in the opposite
direction of the tide. A few
small sea trout and one man-
grove snapper promoted a
boat ride to calmer waters.

Owe"DOORin bored both
t- w boat (locks
TeryLacoss and oyster-
bars. We
caught a variety of saltwater
species, including sea trout,
croaker, stingrays, small red-
fish and a real nice three-
pound sea trout that took
Mark Alexander's live finger
mullet.
At the end of the (ay, a
narrow tidal creek was a real
winner, producing several
redfish with five-year-old
Owen scoring the winning
touchdown with his multi-
spotted seven-pound redfish.
Certainly a main concern
with a lot of area football fans
is whether the Jaguars' new
owner Shahid Khan will keep
the Jaguars in Jacksonville or
move them to'a new city
offering a lot more money.
"We all believe that Khan
will keep the Jaguars in
Jacksonville," Mark Alexan-
der said. "However, there is
an outside chance the Jaguars
could be moved and, instead
of making millions of dollars,
the team would suddenly be
making billions of dollars with
a new deal,
"However, Shahid Khan
did shake former team owner
Wayne Weaver's hand and
said that he would keep the
Jaguars in Jacksonville."
Pepsi also sponsors
NASCAR drivers Dale Earn-
hardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon.
"Both race car drivers do a
tremendous job in promoting
Pepsi products," Mark
Alexander said.
Both Owen and Jacob
Alexander appeared to be
candidates for the NASCAR
circuit as they. raced around
my boat, casting to where a
fish had just been caught and
also re-baiting their hooks
like a race car il I taking a,.

likely, their father used these
same energies in landing his
marketing job with Pepsi.
It is har-d to say which.out-
door or indoor sport con-
sumes the most beverage
products. I would have to say
fishing.

phy, multiple-spotted redfish. Below, Ray Van Horn and C.A.
Richardson, from left, were sponsored by 7-up during.the ESPN

holder for the Jacksonville Jaguars and also sponsored by Pepsi Cola.

Taking into account the
number of people fishing
each day throughout North
America may well double the
amount of any other sport.
However, more beverage visi-


ability is derived on TV while
watching such sports as foot-
ball, golf, tennis and basket-
ball.
Certainly forgetting to fill
your boat's cooler with ice


and your favorite beverages
for a full day of fishing
requires a trip to the closest
retail store. A day of hunting
or fishing would not be com-
plete without consuming a


cold beverage during a heat-
ed encounter with sport fish
or wild game. Outdoorsmen
tend to select one beverage
for good luck on each and
every fishing trip.

Invitation
The mail arrived and right on top

brochures was an invitation to my'
50th high school class reunion.
Could it possibly be? Needless to say
after the initial shock, I read the slick

a matinee and evening performance.
It was a performance, too. Would yoU

Troop update
Recently, the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club enjoyed
an update by Fernandina Beach Scout Troop 89
Scoutmaster Dr. Daniel Matricia, center, David
Beale, left, soon to achieve Eagle Scout, and Will
Howington, Spirit Scout of the Year. The club has
sponsored the troop for 77 years. The Scouts shared
some of their recent adventures, including four back-
packing events to locations ranging from Cumberland
Island to the Appalachian Trail to earn their back-
packing merit badges. Matricia noted that what they
pack in, they also pack out so they leave an area as if
they've never been there. They also shared photos
and anecdotes from Scouting Summer Camp. The
troop raises money through Christmas tree sales and
with the help of the Fernandina Beach Rotary Club
and other benefactors. The club contributes "Happy
Dollars" each meeting to the troop and recently
donated funds to replace the troop's meeting house
roof. Beale noted that membership has grown to 30
and thanked the club for its continued support.

Governor visits
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club and
Amelia Island Sunrise Rotary Club recently
welcomed new District 6970 Governor John
Brunner at a barbecue at the Chem Cell Club
on Amelia Island. Brunner, left with
Fernandina Rotary President John Boylan
and Sunrise Rotary President Christal Fish,
took office July 1 and is a longtime member
of the Rotary Club of Downtown Gainesville.
After a dinner of grilled steaks and potluck
dishes, he shared his goals for the coming
year, Brunner said member retention and
recruitment were high priorities for all clubs
in the district, along with even stronger sup-
port for the Rotary Foundation and its objec-
tives, including eradicating polio throughout
the world. He announced that his primary
goal as governor is to lend unwavering sup-
port to local clubs so that they can be more
successful taking care of their communities
and addressing the needs of the club. He
said his personal motto as governor will be,
"What can I do to help you make your club
the best it can be?"

Barnabas update
On Aug. 10 the Rotary Club of Amelia Island
Sunrise welcomed Barnabas Center Executive
Director Wanda Lanier, right. According to Lanier,
"One little crisis can put many people over the
edge financially these days. Even just the price of
gas going up can be enough to place some families
in trouble." A major program is its pantry, which
distributes over 80,000 pounds of food each year.
People in need can visit the pantry once a month
for a variety of packaged foods. Lanier says avail-
ability of fresh produce, meats, dairy products and
other healthy dietary choices has been a constant
struggle for the pantry. Through a partnership with
Second Harvest North Florida, Barnabas, local
churches and nonprofits have begun to provide
fresh food to families in need in Fernandina
Beach, Yulee and Callahan. Working with Baptist
Medical Center Nassau, Barnabas also provides
free or low-cost medical and dental care for lower
income adults without insurance. Barnabas faces
an annual challenge of raising over $200,000 to
support just its medical and dental services.

New member
On Aug. 10 the Rotary Club of Amelia
Island Sunrise welcomed new member
Leah Ledesma, center right. She was
sponsored by club member Mark
Dennis, left, and presented to the
membership by club President Christal
Fish, far right.
A longtime member of Nassau
County, Ledesma manages the Yulee
branch of Community First Credit
Union of Florida. Prior to that she
worked at the former Eight Flags Credit
Union in Fernandina Beach, becoming
part of the Community First team when
the two credit unions merged in 2005.
Ledesma serves on the board of
directors at the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of
Commerce and is participating in
Leadership Nassau. A mother of two
and an avid runner, Ledesma also par-
ticipates in community projects and her
church.

How can you resist those big

We're not sure of the breed,

CONSTITUTIONAL
AMENDMENT
ARTICLE V,
SECTIONS 2, 11 AND 12


(Legislative)
Ballot Title: STATE COURTS -
Ballot Summary: Proposing a
revision of Article V of the State
Constitution relating to the
judiciary.
The State Constitution
authorizes the Supreme Court
to adopt rules for the practice
and procedure in all courts.
The constitution further pro-
vides that a rule of court may
be repealed by a general law
enacted by a two-thirds vote
of the membership of each
house of the Legislature. This
proposed constitutional revi-
sion eliminates the require-
ment that a general law
repealing a court rule pass by
a two-thirds vote of each


house thereby providing that
the Legslature rrmay repeal a
rule of court b,, a general Ica,,
approved by a majority vote
of each house of the
Legidature that expresses the-
policy behind the repeal The
court could readopt the rule in
conformity wirth the public pol-
icy expressed by the
Legislature, but if the
Legidature determines that a
rule has been readopted and
repeals the readopted rule,
this proposed revulon prohibits
the court from further read-
opting the repealed rule with-
out the Legislature's prior
approval. Under current law.
rules of the judicial nominating
commissions and the Judicial
Qualifications Commission
may be repealed by general
law enacted by a majority
vote of the membership of
each house of the Legislature,
Under this proposed revision, a
vote to repeal those rules is
changed to repeal by gener-
al law enacted by a majority
vote of the legislators present
Under current lcw, the
Governor appoints a justice of
the Supreme Court from a list
of nominees provided by a
judicial nominating commis-
son, and appointments by the
Governor are not subject to
confirmation. This revision
requires Senate confirmation
of a justice of the Supreme
Court before the appointee
can take office. If the Senate
votes not to confirm the
appointment the judicial norm-
inating commission must
reconvene and may not
renominate any person whose
prior appointment to fill the
same vacancy was not con-
firmed by the Senate. For the
purpose of confirmation, the
Senate may meet at any time.
If the Senate fails to vote on
the appointment of a justice
within 90 days, the justice will
be deemed confirmed and
will take office,
The Judicial Qualifications
Commission is an independ-
ent commission created by
the State Constitution to inves-
tigate and prosecute before
the Florida Supreme Court
alleged misconduct by a jus-
tice or judge. Currently under
the constitution, commission
proceedings are confidential
until formal charges are filed
by the investigative panel of
the commission. Once formal
charges are filed, the formal
charges and all further pro-
ceedings of the commission
are public, Currently the con-
stitution authorizes the House
of Representatives to impeach
a justice or judge. Further, the
Speaker of the House of
Representatives may request,
and the Judicial Qualifications
Commission must make avail-
able, all information in the
commission's possession for
use in deciding whether to
impeach a justice or judge.
This proposed revision requires
the commission to make all of
its files available to the Speaker
of the House of
Representatives but provides
that such files would remain
confidential during any inves-
tigation by the House of
Representatives and until such
information is used in the pur-
suit of an impeachment of a
justice or judge. This revision
also removes the power of the
Governor to request files of the
Judicial Qualifications
Commission to conform to a
prior constitutional change.
This revision also makes
technical and clarifying addi-
tions and deletions relating to
the selection of chief judges of
a circuit and relating to the
Judicial Qualifications Com-
mission, and makes other non-
substantive conforming and
technical changes in the judi-
cial article of the constitution.
