Sheriff backs off



insurance switch


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Outgoing Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
has backed off a plan to switch his
employees' insurance carrier without
approval from the Nassau County
Commission after learning the move
might cost more dollars than it saves.
At a commission meeting Oct. 22,
d.ir. -hii 'ii'announced he would trans-
fer his 200-plus employees from the
county's plan with Blue Cross Blue
Shield to a reportedly cheaper plan
with United Healthcare on Dec. 1.
Seagraves insisted then that he did not
need board approval, to make that
change.
But in a letter to the board Oct. 24,
Seagraves asked commissioners for a
meeting to vet their concerns and
decide whether the change would ben-
efit county taxpayers.
"I would like to discuss this matter
because I do not want to put the coun-
ty, and consequently the taxpayers, in
a situation that is not mutually benefi-
cial for the sheriff's office as well as the
county," the sheriff's letter stated.
The switch would result in a budg-
et savings of $300,000 for the county
and an added $100,000 for sheriff's
office employees, Seagraves has said.
At the meeting, commissioners and
county staff raised concerns that the
switch needed board approval and the
withdrawal of sheriff's employees
could raise rates' for the remaining
employees under the county's con-
tracted provider.
Seagraves dismissed those con-
cerns at the time, but Clerk of Court
John Crawford, the county's chief finan-
cial officer, affirmed them in a letter to
the board and the sheriff two days
later.
Spending health insurance funds


budgeted by the
county commis-
sion would require
the board's con-
sent, said
Crawford, citing
state laws that for-
bid outgoing con-
stitutional officers
Seagraves whose budgets
are approved by
county commissions from making
major, budget changes without a green
light from the local conViission.
Under the contract, Blue Cross
could impose a hike in rates for the
rest of the county's employees to offset
revenues it would lose with the depar-
ture of the sheriff's staff, he said.
"By unilaterally'opting out of the
county's health insurance contract, the
sheriff may interfere with the coun-
ty's ability to perform its obligations
with BCBS under the agreed-upon
terms. The terms of the county's cur-
rent contract with BCBS were negoti-
ated with the inclusion of the sheriff's
approximately 210 employees in the
county's risk pool," the clerk's letter
stated.
"The sheriff's notice of intent to the
board to withdraw from the risk pool
most likely will result in rate increases
for all other county employees because
the modification of rates of the BCBS
agreement provides rates for the term
of agreement will remain in effect'pro-
vided there is no material change to the
benefit contracts."
The sheriff's announcement drew
mixed responses at the meeting.
He and Commission Chair Danny
Leeper clashed over whether the Tax
Collector's Office, which had switched
plans previously, was benefiting from

City candidates



face off at forum


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The four candidates running for
city commission met Thursday to dis-
cuss their vision for Fernandina Beach
in a public question-and-answer forum
at City Hall.
Former city manager Larry Myers
was moderator for the event, which
attracted a full audience to learn more
before the election next Tuesday.
Ed Boner and Tim Poynter are run-
ning for the Group 4 seat currently
held by Poynter, and John Campbell
Elwell and Pat K. Gass are running for
the Group 5 seat held by Vice Mayor
Jeffrey Bunch, who is not seeking
reelection.
They answered questions about the
budget, Forward Fernandina, impact
fees and generating revenues, among
other topics.
Boner said he was disappointed in
decisions by commissioners about how
tax money is spent and said he was
worried about city reserves dropping.
He also said he hoped to bring financial
conservatism and a "caring voice" to
the commission. The city, Boner said,
needs to "start prioritizing spending
and start listening to voters." It should
also continue to look at ways to reduce
spending, he said.
"I got into politics because I didn't
like the way Forward Fernandina was
handled," Boner said. "I talked to res-
idents who didn't know what Forward
Fernandina was, butwhen they looked
out their windows they saw water
(from flooding).... You need to separate
things into what you need and what
you want." He also noted that if com-


missioners bor-
Meetthe row money
nd without a public
C .referendum, the
PA money can be
8 used for almost
anything.
Boner said he also was deeply con-
cerned about the city employee pen-
sion plan, because such plans have
financially hobbled small cities in
recent years.
"Every small city is going to a two-
tiered pension plan," Boner said.
Fernandina Beach could be in trou-
ble, he said, if it does not do some-
thing similar.
Poynter, the only incumbent in the
group, emphasized the fact that he has
had four years' experience as a com-
missioner, and that the job is not as
easy as it may appear. "I come here
with a lot of experience," Poynter said.
"Year after year, I got smarter ... you
find out it's not as easy as you think."
As for cost-saving measures,
Poynter said the city's entire budget of
$95.4 million is a big number, but that
commissioners mostly deal with $18
million that is in the general fund. "We
need to look at a different way of doing
business ... that's one way we can con-
solidate expenses," he said.
"We can't eliminate every fee the
city has and function as a city," Poynter
said. "We put the burden on the people
who are using (services) at the
moment."
"We finally got a stormwater fee,"
Poynter said. "These things need to
be done and we have to charge people

recommended the reduction
in services due primarily to
curbside recycling options
offered by Advanced Disposal
Services, according to a coun-
ty commission agenda item
request July 18. The measure
is expected to reduce staff
hours and fuel costs utilized to
pull items from sites that pro.

request notes.
Herring said the county's
recycling program generated
$26,530 in. revenue from Oct.
1, 2011 through Sept. 30. The
convenience center's annual
operating expenses are
$148,334.

the change. Seagraves, who
told the board he had spoken
with Tax Collector John Drew
prior to the meeting, said it
had resulted in a big savings.
"I've been hearing differ-
ently," said Leeper.
In response to the sheriff's
claim that United hadn't gotten
a fair shake when the county
bid the contact out, C.. rily
Manager Ted Selby said Blue
Cross's bid came in much
lower than United's.
Management and Budget
Director Shanea Jones was
first to raise the issue that Blue
Cross could hike rates for
remaining staff if Seagraves
enrolled his employees, which
comprise the bulk of the coun-
ty's total staff, with United
instead.
"I don't know if a constitu-
tional officer has the right to

out board approval," Leeper
said at the time, asking Selby

who do not receive curbside
collection.
Advanced Disposal gener-
al manager Myron Thomas
said he has not seen a signifi-
cant spike in volume since the
county closures earlier this
month.
In January, the company
switched from using smaller
blue collection bins to larger
green 65-gallon rolling carts.
The voluntary recycling.pro-
gram is available to customers
who already receive solid
waste collection service.
Customers in Callahan and
Fernandina Beach have been
utilizing the green carts..
Amelia Island Plantation cus-
tomers opted for the smaller
bins because they take up less
space than the new bins.
Thomas said the company
doesn't have any plans of
switching out the bins on
Amelia Island any time soon,
but did'say the larger green
bins are beneficial.
"It's a.single stream col-
lection, which makes it easi-
er," he said. "It's easier
because you don't have to
worry-about sorting with us."
Although he could not
state the exact annual revenue
generated due to fluctuations
in the costs of recycling and
management of hazardous
waste materials, workers col-
lected '75 tons of recyclable
materials at a cost of $24 per
ton in September.
He added that the main
benefit is having less garbage
deposited into landfills.
"That's the biggest win for
our company," Thomas said.
"It's what we need to do fori
our environment." .


to research the issue.
"I applaud you for taking
the bull by the horns and
doing it," Commissioner Barry
Holloway told Seagraves.
The sheriff said he was just
doing right by his employees,
saving them money that could
be put towards house pay-
ments and other necessary
expenses. "I have to look out
for my employees," he said.

GAINESVII LE- Floridians'
consumer confidence remained
near a post-recession high in
October, according to a
monthly University of Florida
survey.
"Floridians are still feeling
relatively optimistic in October
as we head into the final week
of the election," said Chris
McCarty, director of UF's
Survey Research Center in the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. '"The index
was revised up a point in
September to a post-recession
high . although in normal
times it would be historically
low."
The National Bureau of
Economic Research, a non-
governmental entity, deter-
mined the recession began in
December 2007 and ended in
June 2009 the longest reces-
sion since the Great
Depression.
The five survey components

indicate that Florida's con-

Pat Gass said she was happy
to be among Fernandina Beach
voters who "may not always
agree but cherish Fernandina
Beach.... We can and will move
mountains in the betterment of
our community."
Gass said she would like to
look into having a fire district on
the island, much like the Amelia
Island Mosquito Control
District, and also, incorporate
insurance policies for the city
and county to save money.
Gass also said the city
should get all of its property
appraised and begin selling it to
bring in revenues. "We don't
need it, and it would get back
on the tax rolls," she said. She
also suggested the city could
take one attractive piece of
property and sell it by lottery to
give all residents an opportu-
nity to participate.
Gass said public referen-
dums should be held "when
people come unglued" about
the city borrowing large
amounts of money. "We had a
larger number of people against

concerned in October. For
example, their level of confi-
dence in the nation's economic
health over the next year rose
to "a post-rcce(ssion high,"
McCarty said. In addition, their
shared assessment of the U.S.
economy over next five years
rose.
The survey, however, also
showed that confidence in per-
sonal finances compared with a
year ago and expectations of
being better off financially a
year from now both fell.
Respondents also were pes-
simistic as to whether it is a
good time to buy a major house-
hold appliance.
McCarty attributes the
increased pessimism over per-
sonal finances to coverage of
the presidential debates and
perhaps some awareness of the
set of automatic federal budget
cuts and tax increases the so-
called "fiscal cliff."
Floridians' ambivalence over
the economy may also "be tied
to the elections and their mood
may change following the elec-
tions given that the state
appears evenly divided between


were for it," she said. "I'd pay
close attention to the feeling of
the community and what they
want."
Gass also said the city
should suspend impact fees for
businesses and building homes.
"We should get our foot off the
neck of people so they can have
a business," she said.
Elwell highlighted his busi-
ness experience as a reason
that voters should elect him.
He said the city could not con-
tinue to reduce its reserve
funds and that its policies
"should encourage business
rather than'inhibiting it." He
also said the commission's job
was to "focus on solutions, not
personalities."
Elwell said he had gone over
Fernandina's budget the past
two years, and that the city
should look at line items in each
department and hold each
employee responsible. He also
said the budget should be eval-
uated throughout the year
rather than just before the com-


the two presidential candi-
dates," McCarty said. "One can-
didate will lose, and this fact
may change the outlook of
those supporting him," he
added.
Meanwhile, the economy is
clearly in recovery, he said.
Several indicators are posi-
tive both in Florida and the
nation. New home sales are up
and the median price of existing
homes, though down slightly
from August, is up 7.8 percent
from the previous year. In addi-
tion, the Federal Reserve's
recent stimulus, which ensures
relatively low mortgage rates
through next year, will contin-
ue to support an improving'
housing market.
"Several property tax
amendments on the Florida
November ballot may also stim-
ulate sales," McCarty said,
"although it is unlikely that
many potential homebuyers are
holding out for these changes
given the favorable conditions
for buying a home."
The volatile stock market,
meanwhile, has kept most of
its gains for the past year. In


ing fiscal year.
"The city has assets but a
liquidity problem," said Elwell,
who also noted that "not a lot of
thought went into the city's fee
structure.'.
"We need to work closely
with the county commission to
reduce costs and overhead,"
Elwell said. He added that he
would also like to see island-
wide police and fire depart-
ments. "Combining city and
county functions in obvious
ways is a no-brainer," he said.
The city, Elwell said, should
suspend impact fees that inhib-
it business. "Business and
tourism are the backbone of
the island," Elwell said, noting
that 36 percent of tax dollars
come from tourism.
"I view the city commission
as working as a team," Elwell
said. "We have to.get along and
work for the betterment of the
city.... The city manager is the
(chief operating officer) of the
city, but needs direction as
well."


addition, U.S. economic growth
as measured by gross domestic
product for the third quarter is
higher than expected. Finally,
the U.S unemployment rate
dropped to 7.8 percent, while
Florida's unemployment fell 0.1
percent in September to 8.7 per-
cent.
"While some of this is due to
a decline in the labor force,
some jobs are being created,"
and we have almost certainly
turned the corner in terms of
job losses," he said.
Such promising trends
could mean that the next phase
of the recovery is a return to
normal economic conditions,
he said. However, he cautioned
that long- term structural
change to the U.S. economy
caused by macro-economic
forces may have redefined what
"normal" means. -
Prior to the recession, for
instance, the natural unem-
ployment level of workers look-
ing for jobs was between 5 and
5.5 percent. The new normal
unemployment rate, however,
"may now be closer to 6 per-
cent," McCarty said.


"The job of the city com-
mission is to listen, then listen
some more, and listen some
more," Gass said, "and ask
questions until you are satis-
fied you have all the informa-
tion to do what's in the best
interest of the people, no matter
where they live."
Boner said commissioners
should "try to get the most ...
out of every decision. ... We
can't do what every voter
wants." He also said the city
should "be careful of getting
rid of green space ... you give
up choice every time you sell
something."
"Government isn't run like a
business," Poynter said. "I'm
asking for your vote because
I've been there, done that ... I
have incredible hopes for the
future and I'm confidant I can
bring that to life."
"I ask for the suspension of
impact fees," Elwell said. "I will
not support any major loans that
were not approved by voters."

RICHARD BRUCE

Ocean Highway & Port Authority

of Nassau County, District 1

Experience Counts

The Fernandina Beach Port Authority is facing serious economic challenges.
The Port Authority has an important impact on the Nassau County Economy.

Nassau County Commission Chair Danny Leeper says:
" Seaboard (the Port's biggest shipper-Editor) has actually pulled out of the port,
and I am hearing that the port is losing customers, losing someemployees, and
losing some revenue. I served on that board for 12 years andl'm concerned about
what's happening there.
We've been doing everything we can to create economic development for Nassau
County and they (the Port) are an important economic driver to the local
economy to the tune of $23 to $25 million a year..I just hope that they (the
Port Board) will rise to the challenge in the tough economic times and have
the right leadership to continue to move the port forward."*

* We need an expert on the Port Authority who understands maritime issues.
Richard Bruce is that expert.
* He has 40 years hands-on experience in the maritime industry, including 11years
of port authority management.
Di' 3200 member Nassau'Couinty Florida Farm Bureau is supporting Ricliard Bruce.

Leaving it to


private industry


The makeover of the Old
Dinghy Club building on the
Fernandina Beach waterfront
rivals the work of a Beverly
Hills plastic surgeon.
It would even make facelift
. queen Joan Rivers envious.
The final product, The Salty
Pelican Bar & Grill, is some-
thing that is good and appeal-
ing for downtown Fernandina
Beach. When private capital is
infused into a project rather
than public funds it provides
a spark, a taste of economic
vitality for a town.
Public funds could have
been used to revitalize this
fabled, but dilapidated build-
ing. However, this would mean
taxpayers are providing the
funds as public officials often
waste them. Instead, entrepre-
neurs Al Waldis and T.J.
Pelletier invested private'mo-
ney into a dream endeavor that
has success written all over it.
The building's location,
tucked along the railroad
tracks, is pivotal to the down-
.town waterfront. Not only.does
the restaurant offer a spectac-
ular view of the Intracoastal
Waterway to its patrons, it also
dresses up the postcard appear-
ance of the city from the river.
In place of a weatbiered,
building, you hax-: a Ir,.-nd-,
restaurant with a i ..I d-,f.11
deck, 14 big-screen televisions,
two spacious bars and a
panoramic view that takes awhay
your breath but i '-.:p.-< i 1 r.l ,
gasps of joy (or maybe a sig-
nature broiled oyster).
Fernandina Beach needs
more projects like this. The
downtown district, like many
others, has been set back by
the severe recession and a
weakened business climate.
There are more empty store-
fronts and offices along Centre
Street and the side streets than
most residents can recall.
It has been justification for
city officials to push for a major
Forward Fernandina capital
project that will cost millions
of dollars. Public officials feel
they must initiate investment
into downtown to invigorate
the business and economic cli-
mate biut private :iunrdiHi is
"always better.
Private funds do not have
to be paid back. They do not
burden the city with debts that
must be repaid by taxpayers in
later years. Imagine if the city
had undertaken improvements
at the Old Dinghy Club; inevit-
ably it would be inferior to what
private investors like Waldis
and Pelletier have done, and
would have left the city with
big bill.
Another example of a time-
ly private infusion is at the
Amelia Island Plantation. Omni
Hotels & Resorts is pumping
more than $80 million into
improving the Plantation's
amenities. It has created jobs
and an economic enthusiasm
among Plantation residents and


others. It is

PLACE something
like what the
(Omni has
Steve Nicklus done. It
would have
meant borrowing funds and
putting the public sector into an

project. And it would not have
worked nearly as well.
Goverii]nment can encourage
private investment, however. It
Scan reduce burdensome

Encourage and embrace out-
side investimnt like the coun-
ty is doing with new residen-
tial/commercial projects in
Ytilee along A1A (such as one
of the largest commercial proj-
ects in the nSoutheast through
Rayonier's real estate arm,
Terra Pointe).
In historic downtown
Fernandina Beach, other
,- restaurants and shops and busi-
nesses have located in old
buildings. So Salty Pelican's
-' .,.i'a, onto the scene is not new,
:but it comes at a pivotal time.
An d a time of need.
Entrepreneurial investors
Slik C,.... .- Sheffield and Don
Shaw have also helped the local
economy by investing in down-
town and elsewhere in the city.
Shaw has renovated two empty
bank buildings along Centre
Street and then filled them with
restaurants, shops and offices.
Sheffield has acquired the
Amelia River Golf Course as
well as the Hammerhead
Beach Bar and The Surf (and
previously The Palace Saloon
and the Bailey House). In his
effective style, Sheffield has
reinforced and revitalized these
businesses, returning them to -
their heydays.
"" Waldis and i'..ri..-' have
done. something 'simitar,i trily
on a smaller scale. But it is a
critical investment and addi-
tion to a tired downtown water-
front: Hopefully it will start a
pattern of outside investment
into this vital location.
City officials thwarted the
Lane Development project on
the waterfront several years
ago. They should open their
arms to new ventures that
are funded by private money.
And officials should focus their
attention on running the city,
not redeveloping it themselves.

IN BRIEF


'Ideal executive'
Annually recognizing key
members of the Omni Hotels
& Resorts family as the
"Ideal Executives," the Omni
Amelia Island Plantation
announced local Amelia
Island resident Norman
Rowland as the Ideal Execu-
tive of the Year in Enginee-
ring. With 50 distinct hotels
across North America, Omni
Hotels & Resorts distin-
guished only six officials with
the Ideal Executive award.
Rowland, director of engi-
neering at the Omni Amelia
Island Plantation, was recog-
nized as the ideal executive
for his contributions to the
resort's $85 million re-imagi-
nation construction project:
overseeing multiple engineer-
ing departments and staff
members; improving finan-
cial efficiencies and stream-
lining operations; as well as
increasing internal satisfac-
tion scores for both guests
and associates. Rowland has
been with Omni Hotels &
Resorts since it took owner-
ship of the Amelia.Island
Plantation in 2010 but has
worked at the oceanfront
resort property since 1982.
"Norman's work ethic,
humility and dedication to


his employ-
es and his
- job is
A extraordi-
niary," said
~ Paul Eckert
general
manager.
Rowland "His 30
S ..- -. years of
service is
most deserving of this recog-
nition and we are proud to
have him represent the
Amelia Island community on
the Omni corporate level."
Other Omni Amelia Island
Plantation executives to have
received the Ideal Executive
award in the past include
Julie Doi, Claudia Cid, Leslie
Tune and Eckert.
Realtors Yes on 4
Nassau County Associa-
tion of Realtors announced
support for Amendment 4, a
Florida constitutional amend-
ment on the 2012 November
ballot.
Amendment 4 would cre-
ate an additional homestead
exemption for first-time
homebuyers, lowqr the
assessment cap on non
homestead property and pro-
vide a way to stop assess-
ment increases on properties


that have recently dropped in
market value.
"Florida deserves a bal-
anced property ltax system
that encourages home owner-
ship and economic growth,"
said Wendy Sapp, CEO. "By
putting more money into the
pockets of hard working.
Floridians, Amendment 4 will
create tens of thousands of
jobs and get home prices
back on the rise."
According to Florida
TaxWatch, a nonpartisan
watchdog, Amendment 4 will
create nearly 20,000 jobs,
increase personal wealth by
$5.3 billion and boost
Florida's GDP by over $1.1
billion. Florida TaxWatch
analysts also estimate that
Amendment 4 could create
over 350,000 additional home
sales over 10 years. To read
the full report, visit
www.FloridaTaxWatch.org.
Amendment 4 was placed
on the 2012 November ballot
with bipartisan support in the
Florida Legislature. The.
Florida Realtors, Florida
Chamber of Commerce and
the Florida Association of
Insurance Agents are among
trade organizations that have
joined the Taxpayers First
coalition supporting
Amendment 4.


Sales, prices of houses


rise; condo sales drop


*The Amelia Island Nassau'
Cotinty Association of Realtors
has released its real estate
market statistics for the third
quarter 2012. These statistics
include both single-family res-
idential and condominium
sales for Nassau County.
Pending sales of single-fam-
ily residential properties
increased by 6.7 percent dur-
ing the third quarter of 2012
compared to the third quarter
of 2011:
Pending sales for condo-
miniums did not fare as well,
declining at a rate of 8.3 per-
cent for the same period.
Closed sales of single-fam-
ily residential properties post-
ed a 2.8 percent gain quarter
over quarter. Sales of condo-
miniums were off 17.5 percent:
The average sale price of a


single-family home continues
to climb, increasing to
$268,090, an 11.5 percent gain
over the third quarter of 2011..
The average price of a condo-
minium increased 25.4 percent
during the same period to
$331,713.
There was an inventory of
854 single-family homes
reported in the Nassau County
Multiple Listing Service, a 14.3
percent drop compared to the
third quarter of 2011. The

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Zoning doesn't
protect
Buyer Beware: we pur-
chased a home in Amelia Walk
within the Hampton Lakes
Planned Unit Development
(PUDI). We were informed
there would be light commer-
cial development in the future.
Under the PUD designation,
commercial was to be 15 per-
cent: the new owners want the
area to be rezoned to MEC,
which raises the 15 percent
limit to 55-65 percent and allows
residential units to be built with-
in the commercial area. With
setback changes, it also appears
they are increasing the density
within that area by building the
smaller houses closer to each
other.
Our wonderful community
(Amelia Walk) will be fronted
by a "small city" if this rezoning
is approved. What protection is
afforded to the current proper-
ty owners? The developers are
now trying to sell the area as a
"retirement community" with
housing for 55-plus residents,
small shops and 4-5-story assist-
ed living facilities. I also feel
that because of their new
approach, they are hiding the
true square footage of this proj-
ect because the assisted living
facility can be defined by a "bed
-, count."
This 107 acres will have 100
f residential units, 100,000 square
li feet of retail, 50,000 square feet
, for office space and 450,000
-i square feet for institutional
, (these figures are huge!).
< Nassau County does not need
> this type of development.
,. Residents have all the items list-
", ed in this new rezoning appli-
: cation close by: shops, gas sta-
; tions, grocers within 4-5 miles
and-three assisted living facili-
, ties within 10-15 miles.
Our development is not built
-; out we have empty lots
throughout the neighborhood.
:, The developers stated the need
to "separate" the commercial
parcels from the Amelia Walk
subdivision yet the entrance to
their new commercial area will
share the entrance to our sub-
division. This planned area actu-
ally borders our amenity center
pool, tennis courts and
playscape area (a safety issue
;* for the youngsters living in
,Amelia Walk).
Again I ask, who will cham-
pion the current residents? If
this application for rezoning is
approved by the Planning and
Zoning Board, and they can
change our PUD designation
with such ease, what other sub-
division will face this issue?
Does a PUD maintain it's defi-
Snition forever, or can it be
rezoned at any time? The res-
idents (people) are the heart
of Nassau County; hopefully,
the current commissions will
-, keep this in mind when reach-
, ing their decision. Residents do
not support a rezoning to MEC
and this huge increase in the
percentage of commercializa-
tion within our community.

Airport expansion
At the last commission
meeting there was talk about.
increasing the size and scope of
our municipal airport. I don't
know about anybody else on
our' wonderful island, but most
mornings we wake up not by
the sounds of singing birds, but
the noise of small aircraft flying
by our home. We don't live next
to the airport but in the
Lakewood area. Some days it
Continues for hours on end,
small single-engine planes fly-
Sing to the beach and back to
the airport over and over and
over again. Some days it sounds
as if our Amelia Island Air
SForce is on maneuvers. As I'm
writing this at 6:30 p.m. planes
'" are going over my home.
S Each aircraft in and out of *
that airport decreases the qual-
:: ity of life for all of us on this
island, except for that person
Swho's flying that plane. You
;: think he or she cares?
;' It concerns me greatly that
'"there is talk about a second
Sfixed-base operator who wants
: to 14uild more hangars, confer-
ence rooms, restaurant and


repair facilities and promote our
airport. At that meeting the
developer and his expert told
our elected officials what they
were going to do at our airport
and told the commissioners
they didn't have anything they
could do about it.
If this construction happens,
if we as citizens and our elected
officials allow this to happen, it
will change the lifestyle and
quality of life on this island. This
is a defining moment of how
we want to shape our lives.
My family chose Amelia
Island as our home because it
was not like Hilton Head, S.C.
Sometimes I think bigger is not
always better. What do you
think?

Obamasign
'fake down the Obama sign
"Obama sign on A1A draws
complaints," Oct. 24)? Really?
Why not it may be one of the
only Obama signs that has not
been burned (yes, burned!),
stolen or defaced in Nassau
County
Dozens of small signs were
put up by Democratic support-
ers in areas where Republican
political signs stood, only to dis-
appear within 24 hours.
Democrats don't believe in
burning, stealing or defacing
Republican signs. This is the
work of small-minded hood-
lums acting in the dark.
The message is frightening.
The lack of civilized behavior
on the part of the opposing
party against a political system
established by our Constitution
is sobering.
Maggie Carlson
Fernandina Beach

I read with disappointment
and embarrassment that my old
friend Wayne Chism objected to
a large portrait of President
Obama located on A1A (Obama
sign oA A1A draws complaints,"
Oct. 24). As the election is only
days away it seems the sign will
sneak in the 10-day window of
removal. Moreover, the prop-
erty owner has offered to allow
wankers like Chism to put up a
portrait for the ever-changing
Willard Romney The important
point that Chism and his ilk
ignore is the freedom of expres-
sion that most of us hold dear.
Who knows how the
Republicans are going to cheat
thpir way to a win in Florida
this time as they did against
Gore? At least keep all conduct
like the sign, in the "sunlight";
enjoy the debate, recognize the -
importance of tolerance and
pray Obama wins.

Dave'sWorld
David Scott should apolo-
gize for his petty and demean-
ing comment about Candy
Crowley. (Dave's World, Oct.
,19). She is a serious reporter
who deserves to be judged for
her work, not her looks. We
cannot all be in as good a
physical shape as I assume Mr.
Scott is. Or perhaps he was
upset that Candy crushed Mitt
Romney's attempt to "catch"
President Obama? Actually, I
have been wondering lately if
the News-Leader checks/edits
the articles and letters it pub-
lishes. There seems'to be an
increasing number of hateful
and even delusional letters that
are not helpful to anyone and
certainly do not advance under-
standing. I am seriously con-
sidering not renewing the sub-
scription.

From the military
Re: "Stop glorifying the mil-
. itary," Oct. 19.
This is simply very poor,
uninformed writing. The author
of "Stop Glorifying the Military"
can best be described as igno-
rant on this topic as he failed to
recognize his own incompe-
tence at acquiring the neces-
sary knowledge he needed in
order to make a valid'argument
or position statement.


Ignorance is a state of being
uninformed. The adage "igno-
rance is a dangerous thing"
comes to mind as this author
seems to have a very limited
and superficial understanding
of what it means and what it
takes to be in today's armed
forces. It boggles my mind that
anyone would try to correlate
store discounts and preferen-
tial airline boarding as a men-
tality that got us involved in
Vietnam, Iraq, Somalia,
Afghanistan, et al. First, I do
not see the correlation that this
author sees, and second, since
when did identifying even a
valid correlation equate to
causality?
The author also asserts that
most military members "joined"
because the military offered
the best job for the level of edu-
cation and skills the member
brought to the table, or because
they are attracted to a lifestyle
where almost every decision is
made for them but not
because the member wants to
serve their country. The asser-
tion is baseless and lacks any
foundation. It is also insulting.
Did the author really intend to
suggest that our armed forces
is comprised of mindless, stu-
pid, unskilled and uneducated
citizens unable and unworthy to
acquire a job anywhere else in
the civilian world? The author is
apparently ignorant to the fact
that our current armed forces is
the most highly educated
armed forces in the history of
this country both in terms of
collegiate undergraduate and
graduate education and in pro-
fessional military education.
And the armed forces builds
leaders and stresses leadership,
even at the lowest enlisted
ranks.
I want you to know that I
entered the Air Force as an RN
with an undergraduate degree
to server my country and I did
this in the midst of the Vietnam
War. I now have a master's
degree. My husband served 26
years in the Air Force and could
have left the service for over
20 of those years for a better
paying job as an engineer in the
civilian community. My
youngest son is serving as an
Air Force pilot but was vigor-
ously recruited by corporations
with much better paying posi-
tions in aviation management
but we chose to serve our
country, as do all we know in
the military community. We did
not do it for the pay, that's for
sure.
And one more thing: mili-
tary members never get to say
no, never get to quit a job they
don't like until they can lawful-
ly separate, never get to change
units or the people they work
with just because they do not
get along, are on call and duty
24/7, can be recalled from leave
or vacation at a moment's
notice, must meet extremely
stringent physical fitness
requirements or be subject to
disciplinary action that could
include involuntary separation,
- are forced to move and uproot
families to places where they
have no real desire to live and
are absolutely required to enroll
in advanced education in order
to be considered for.promotion.
It's up or out. No one, I repeat,
no one, gets the opportunity to
languish their life away in the
military for any amount of years
in any position at the expense of'
the taxpayer. Do not misun-
derstand this: the military oper-
ates in ways that will never fly
Sin the civilian counterpart so
do not even try to compare the
life of a service member or their
families to any civilian coun-
terpart. There simply is no com-
parison.
Susan Ray

A recent letter writer wrote
in derogatory terms of our mil-
itary ("Stop glorifying the mili-
tary," Oct. 19). He took
umbrage at referring to them as
"heroes." He described a hero
as being "someone who goes
beyond his or her regular
duties to perform a particular-
ly courageous act." May I sug-
gest that the act of volunteering
is just such a courageous act
as the volunteer does not know
at the time of volunteering if,


where or when he or she may
be exposed to enemy lire. Thus,
by the letter writer's own
words, the volunteer is a hero.
Fortunately, there are those
among us who recognize the
threat to our country and are
willing to risk their own lives to
protect it. To me, and most of
us, this is a hero.
William C. Brooks
World War II veteran
Amelia Island

Kudos to all my fellow mili-
tary retirees and veterans who
have spoken out on the absurd-
ity of the writer's assertion that
we shouldn't glorify our active
duty military ("Stop glorifying
the military," Oct. 19). For
Pete's sake, these are the peo-
ple who stand at the devil's gate
and keep the hordes at bay!
The letter reveals the small-
ness of the writer's mind in his
feeble attempt to espouse his
liberal ideology.
Though the writer may not
have been born in Kenya, he is
not a native American and, con-
sequently, does not possess an
understanding of the unique-
ness of the American chartc-
ter embedded in us at birth.
However, this in no way excus-
es his diatribe, but only places
it in a different context.
I, for one, salute our young
men and women in uniform
who stand in harm's way and
pray for their safe return from
the world's battlefields.

I've been mulling over my
response to ("Stop glorifying
the military," Oct. 19) since it
was published. I hope I have
something constructive to add
for the considerationof the orig-
inal letter writer. My joining the
military in 1961 was due to tim-
ing and circumstance, but I
wouldn't trade the experience
for anything in my life. I was
provided the time to mature
and appreciate cultures differ-
ent than that in the U.S. I was
stationed in both Germany and
Japan less than 15 years after
World War II. German citizens
were still fresh with revulsion of
Russian occupation, atrocities
and fear as Russian and
American tanks faced each
other 20 yards apart at the
East/West border,in Berlin.
I saw the wall that was erect-
ed with broken glass and
barbed wire embedded on the
top to keep the people in East
Berlin, and East German
guards visibly patrolling the
wall with AK47's, and no reluc-
tance to shoot. We were there
as a symbol of democracy, but
could only hold out 15 minutes
if the Russians decided to over-
run West Berlin. If Berlin fell,
there wasn't much protecting
the rest of Europe from a
takeover by the Russians. I'm
no different than those in the
U.S. military today as we strive
to protect you and your opin-
ions at home from our outposts
throughout the world. I may

Election view
Kudos letters to the editor
on Oct. 24 regarding city elec-
tioi's. I have wanted to write
such a.letter for a long time
regarding the bias in reporting
of our local paper. The truth
and balanced reporting does
not seem to be the goal of the
News-Leader. If Fernandinaicit-
izens took the time to learn the
facts, they would find out that
Tim Poynter voted against the
2012-13 city budget, in part due
to the large increase in the mill-
age rate and other non-essential
line items, such as the fire-
works, for which (commis-
sioners Charles) Corbett and
(Sarah) Pelican voted. Mr.
Poynter also contributed $1,000
for the fireworks display. Who
is the fiscal conservative of
these three?
After attending the city com-
mission forum Thursday night,
it was clear to me that the best
qualified for his seat is Mr.
Poynter. His opponent will fol-
low in the footsteps of Pelican
and Corbett, if elected. Mr. (Ed)
Boner is against Forward
Fernandina, which modernizes
the library and begins using
monies appropriately to
enhance our waterfront to
make it attractive for tourists
(a major source of revenues for
downtown businesses) and for
our citizens. Look at St Marys.
Their waterfront is lovely. We
can do even better with the
right leadership!
For the other seat, the major
idea that Ms. (Pat) Gass pre-
sented was to develop the air-
port and create a restaurant and
hotel nearby where the pilots
could stay. Is that fiscally con-
servative? How many of us own
airplanes or fly a plane? How
many of us use the airport? Is
this fiscally responsible?
Monies would be much better
spent on the waterfront that
many more people can enjoy!
A true community newspa-
per would present a balanced
and accurate view of candidates
and other local concerns, not
the biased view that is fre-
quently presented in the News-
Leader. The mission statement
of the Neus-Leader reads, in
part, that you will publish a dis-
tinguished and profitable news-
paper accomplished through
the "teamwork of professionals
dedicated to the truth, integri-
ty, quality and hard work."
These standards are frequent-
ly not met!
Anne Showalter
Fernandina Beach

We are not getting the truth
from the candidates, or the
media. It probably has always
been that way, but it seems to
me that "spin doctors" have
gone too far this time. No mat-
ter what your political affilia-
tion is, I am sure you would like


to know the truth about the
things your candidates are
telling you.
I recently went to, "Jay
Leno's" Facebook page because
he had- given, the public a
chance to suggest questions for
President Obama. I was
shocked at many of the things
people wrote. I could not
believe how uninformed most
people are. So many folks
believe that if you see it on the
news, or read it in a paper, it
must be true. In the time it-took
folks to log onto Jay's page and
write their silly statements, they
could have checked facts on
important issues and could
have become informed voters.
If you log onto
factcheck.org, you will see that
they give you everything you
need to learn all of the sources
of the information they give
you. Please folks, make an
informed decision when you
cast your vote, nothing could
be more important at this time
in history.
This is taken from
factcheck.org regarding the
second presidential debate:'
"The second Obama-
Romney debate was heated,
confrontational and full of
claims that sometimes didn't
match the facts.
Obama challenged Romney
to "get the transcript" when
Romney questioned the presi-
dent's claim to have spoken of
an "act of terror" the day after
the slaying of four Americans in
Libya. The president indeed
referred to "acts of terror" that
day, but then refrained from
labeling it a terrorist attack.
Obama claimed Romney
once called Arizona's "papers,
please" immigration law a
"model" for the nation. He did-
n't. Romney said that of an ear-
lier Arizona law requiring
employers to check the immi-
gration status of employees.
Obama falsely claimed
Romney once referred to wind-
power jobs as "imaginary." Not
true. Romney actually spoke of
"an imaginary world" where
"windmills and solar panels
could power the economy."
Romney said repeatedly he
won't cut taxes for the wealthy;
a switch from his position dur-
ing the GOP primaries, when
he said the top 1 percent would
be among those to benefit.
Romney said "a recent study
has shown" that taxes "will" rise
on the middle class by $4,000 as
a result of federal debt increas-
es since Obama took office. Not
true. That's just one possible
way debt service could be
financed.
Romney claimed 580,000
women have lost jobs under
Obama. The true figure is clos-
er to 93,000.
Romney claimed the
automakers' bankruptcy that
Obama implemented was "pre-
cisely what I recommend."
Romney did favor a bankruptcy
followed by federal loan guar-
antees, but not the direct fed-
eral aid that Obama insists was
essential.
Romney said he would keep
Pell Grants for low-income col-
lege students "growing." That's
a change. Both Ronney and his
running mate, Ryan, have pre-
viously said they'd limit eligi-
bility.
Both candidates repeated
false or misleading claims they
have made, and we have
rebutted, many times before.
Obama repeated his claim that
he wouldn't put tax rates for
affluent families higher than
they were under Bill Clinton.
Actually, he's already signed
two new taxes that will also fall
on those same high-income per-
sons. And' Romney accused
Obama of saying "no" to the

COMMUNITY THANKS,

Yulee Cub Scouts
I am the communications officer for the
local Yulee Cub Scout Pack 549. I called the
newspaper over the sumimerl and asked them
to run a story as we were seeking sponsors for
our pack. Since that time, we received a com-
mitment from not just one, but two separate
churches in town that have stepped up and
agreed to let us use their facilities for ourt
weekly and monthly meetings.
Pack 549 would like to personally thank
both the Celebration Assembly off of US 17 and
also the River of Praise off of SR 200 for being
so gracious as to allow us the use of their
churches for our meetings. We have nearly 100
boys in Cub Scouts this year and what we are
doing in helping these boys to grow up to be
men of character would not be possible with-
out their help.
Also, the past month we have set up booths
to sell popcorn in front of Winn Dixie, Publix,
Lowe's, Dollar Tree and the Family Dollar.
Pack 549 sincerely thanks all of these local
businesses for allowing us to sell popcorn in
front of your stores. Those badges and belt

Most importantly, Pack 549 gives out a big
thank you to the community, to everyone who
has helped us and bought popcorn from our
pack. I promise you your money could not be
spent on a more worthy cause. We have almost
reached our fundraising goal to fund the pack
throughout the year and provide a quality pro-
gram for the boys in our community. It would
not be possible without all of your generous
help.
Thank you Yulee! You rock!

Stand by for more problems with
election procedures, locations, win-
ners and everything else that goes
along with typical Florida elections.
The Supreme Court may get
involved again, as issues such as
voter rights, new voting locations
and a host of other questionable
tactics take place in the Sunshine
State.
The situation is further compli-
cated by the redistricting that has
taken place in Florida. There are
apparently still questions and liti-
gation involved. It's not so sunny
when voters look at the recently
distributed sample ballots.
Apparent irregularities are visi-
ble and include placement of can-
didate names. Instead of the tradi-
tional incumbent name at the top
of a list of candidates, Florida has
decided to put all the Republican
candidate names first, with no par-
ticular order after that.
In addition to voting for the local
and national office candidates there
are 11 constitutional amendments
on the ballot. Two of these take two
pages each to describe. Reading
and understanding the proposed
amendments requires -a weasel
degree and a dictionary. Most vot-
ers won't be able to read these at the
polls, won't understand them and
won't take the time to wade through
the sample ballot. Given ballot
preparation like this It's arguable
that a lack of understanding is the
voter's own fault. It's generally held
that proposed amendments should
be written so that a person with an
average education (10-plus years)
can understand them.
The voting process itself
requires two pages, according to
instructions on the sample. Polling
places and precinct boundary
changes add to imminent confusion
and thousands of people may be
turned away. This is on the heels of
the Justice Department's order to
the state of Florida stopping the
removal of voters from the state
databases.
In an apparent move to pander to
the wealthy in the state the first con-
stitutional amendment on the ballot
is an attempt to stop Florida from
taking part any part of the
Affordable Health Care Act.
Another traditional problem in
Florida has been the mechanical
recording of votes. This year, at
least in the northern counties the
state is using mark sense ballots.
These are always subject to mis-
matching or unauthorized changes.
Whether something like this hap-
pens this year remains'to be seen.
All in all, there are Florida elec-
tion problems looming.

Union soldiers
Re: "Union soldiers need help,"
Oct. 26.
Jefferson Harris and Jonas
Miller have once again been
required to sit at the back of the
bus. This time by the Parks and
Recreation Department. They
apparently have no rights and no
consideration was given them when
the Parks Department approved,
probably without even checking the
impact this structure would have
on them, not to mention the ceme-
tery itself.
After reading the letter I took a
ride and we visited Jefferson and
Jonas and only by chance did we
find their markers. The site is an
eyesore and there is no space
between the structure to read the
marker. They are very much a part
of the history of Fernandina and
only God knows why the Historic
District Council was not consulted
and why that is not required.
You have to wonder if you or any-
one you know is buried in Bosque
Bello won't be just built over or
moved one day because some city
worker did not bother to really look.
at what they were approving. City
commissioners and the mayor need
to insure these Union soldiers'/vet-
erans' graves are not desecrated and
that measures are taken to insure
this does not happen ever again.
God bless Jefferson Harris and

Smart meters


Re: "Smart meters, dumb idea,"
Oct. 24.
Here we go again, another mis-
informed person who believes some
of the garbage you read on the
Internet.
(The letter writer) states that
radio frequency "blasts" cause
health problems. Really? Name one
person you know who has been
adversely affected by radio waves.
He did not name a single person.
Just general statements of ill effects.
In fact, they are not blasts, but small
low-energy secure radio transmis-
sions like a cell phone uses. How
about WiFi networks which almost
every household and business uti-


RICK MCKEE/THE AUGUSTA (GA.) CHRONICLE


lize? How about TV and radio trans-
missions? Name one scientific study
that finds these devices dangerous?
You can't. They are all safe.
A second concern was the secu-
rity of the smart meters. Hackers
could figure out no one is home
due to low energy usage and then
burglarize your house. However,
the electric meter reading grid will
be secured with the latest technol-
ogy and constantly updated. A hack-
er would have to spend a consider-
able amount of time, money and
resources to crack it. The
risk/reward is just not there.
Third, he said the new meter
has caused fires. You can find
numerous journalistic reports on
the Internet on this subject but they
don't prove anything. The fact is,
old meters pose mord risk of over-
heating and causing a fire. The new
digital meters are safer in that they
will send a signal to your utility com-
pany if it gets too hot. The utility
company will then send someone
out to check on the meter. You get
no such overheat detection with the
old meters.
Finally, the smart meter will
cause your electric bill to "sky-
rocket." Some households may see
an increase while others may see a
decrease because the old meters
are just not as accurate. The new,
meters will also enable consumers
to better see our usage of electrici-
ty. Then we can use this information
to lower electric consumption and
thus lower our electric bills. The
utility company will now be able to
eliminate the need for meter read-
ers, which will lower their labor cost
and then pass the savings on to con-
sumers. While the loss of jobs is
regrettable, FPL is installing GE
meters that are assembled right
here in Florida.
In the end, I feel the consumer
should have the choice. If you are
not comfortable with the new
meters and feel more secure living
in the past, then you should be able
to opt out of the smart meter.
However, if you opt out, then you
should be required to pay an extra
monthly nominal fee. I will pass on
the fee, move ahead into modern
times and enjoy safer and less
expensive electric consumption.

Do the right thing
Christians everywhere have
been saying that the world is going
downhill because we have taken
away prayer in public school and in
other public places. Nassau County
is known to be very religious. Small
churches are everywhere with one
or two mega-churches. People are
always wishing you a "Blessed Day"
and other people always ask, "What
church do you go to? Would you
like to go to mine?" Citizens are
"Praying at the Pole" and invoking
the name of God in most conversa-
tions.
Well, two recent local incidents
have led me to believe that being a
Christian and praying in public
schools or at the pole does not
equate with the world becoming a
better place.
I was leaving the gym one day
and saw a man sitting in the middle
of the sidewalk in front of Hardees
in Callahan. He looked distressed
and was bleeding from a neck
wound. I was in the left lane and
could not immediately stop so I con-
tinued on, made a turn and headed
back to the man. In the meantime,
no one had stopped to see if he was
OK. I parked in Hardees and
approached the man to make sure
he was in no immediate danger.
Long story short, I ran across the
street to the fire department and
two firefighters came out to assess
and take control of the situation.
Again, dozens of cars, many had
huge wooden crosses hanging from
the rearview mirrors, just drove on
by.
The second incident involved a
stray black kitten that, according to
neighbors, had been in the area for
more than a week. The kitten was


seen hanging out with a couple of
families with kids and seemed very
friendly. However, the kitten was
very thin and weak. No one fed the
kitten or called Animal Control. As
in the case of the man in front of
Hardees, everyone ignored the sit-
uation. However, with the help of
another neighbor, I took the kitten
'to my home. I fed it, housed it, and
took it to Animal Control the next
day.
The point being, praying in pub-
lic school or at the pole or attending
church on Sunday does not make
the world a better place. Getting
involved does. Yes, we all have busy,
hectic lives. But these days no one
wants the responsibility of getting
involved. We didn't have to adopt
the man or the hungry stray. We
just needed to do the right thing.

City marina
A recent viewpoint ("Weigh facts
about city marina," Oct. 12) dis-
cussed renewing the annual con-
tract for the city marina. Let me sug-
gest another perspective.
The city marina is unquestion-
ably the finest deepwater docking
facility on Florida's east coast with a
crew fha trIuilv earns affection.
There is no .1 I, I' I ii> la t lirvy a
ruggedly built, well maintained and
within easy walking distance of the
downtown community. And secure
in a storm.
But there is room for improve-
ment if the goal is change the city
marina from a transient stopover to
a destination port. It's mostly a mat-
ter of changing city rules and regu-
lations rather than a major budget
issue.
Below are some of the issues
that need some attention. Where
there is room for improvement is
in the adjacent facilities, e.g., location
of bathrooms, security, parking
access and availability of nearby
marine-related businesses. Improve-
ment on provision of these facilities
would help transform the marina
from a convenient transient stopover
to a destination port with longer
stays.
Consider the location of the bath-
room facilities. It's.a long walk from
the docks, especially in the rain.
Consider the parking facilities. On
more than a few occasions during
the year the adjacent parking facili-
ties are not available to city marina
users. That creates a major incon-
venience to longer-term users of the
city marina, many of whom rent cars
to extend their stays. At the very
least there should be a parking facil-
ity always available for city marina
users.
Consider security. The city mari-
na is open to the public at all times
and becomes quite a popular walk
about just before sunset. But there
are security concerns for the
boaters, especially after dark when
the dock staff has gone for the
evening. Most public marinas do
have access restricted to actual
.. l,,.i -,' l il facilities. And the mari-
nas are patrolled at night. Marinas
are not generally viewed as "parks"
or places of unrestricted public
access. At the very least access to
the city marina by non-boaters
should be restricted or at least lim-
ited with police security visible and
cameras visible to personal 24 hours.
Why not restrict access after clark to
users of the facility ?
Many of the transient boaters
bring high-value assets to the city
marina. The open access to the mari-
na without off-hours security dis-
courages longer stays. And discour-
ages those who might otherwise
berth their boats for longer stays
when they're not on board.
Popular marina facilities usually
encourage marine-related busi-
nesses adjacent to the marina and
advertise their l)resence. But other
than fishing boats for hire there are
no marine businesses near the city
marina. But within the city or near-
by there are a substantial number of
marine-related businesses. It does
take some effort to find them.


An obvious much discussed solu-
tion would be to have a large display
board at the dock house as is com-
monly done in other municipal and
private marinas. Apparently city reg-
ulations preclude such advertise-
ment other than some signs for fish-
ing boat charters.
For example, Kathy Russell runs
a fine scuba training and repair facil-
ity on Atlantic Avenue, there is one
of Florida's finest marine canvas
firms, Top Stitch, at the edge of the
city limits, several outboard motor
and small boat facilities, a boatyard
and a fairly large number of skilled
marine professionals within easy
access to the city marina. But it takes
some doing to find out about these
facilities.
Why not allow an advertisement
board at the Dockmaster Office.
Most every transient boater has'
some repair issues. Spreading the
word about the available marine
repair facilities would encourage
longer stays at the city marina and
substantially enhance the econom-
ic benefit to the city.
In sum, the city marina is a
unique facility, virtually stormproof
and very robust. But there are'gen-
uine security concerns, parking con-
cerns, access to bathroom facilities
and access to marine related busi-
nesses that discourage longer stays
from visiting boaters. Resolving
these issues doesn't require dipping
into the city budget but it does
require some changes in regulations
and practice. Making the city mari-
na more "boater friendly" would
greatly encourage a transformation
of the city marina from a transient
facility to a destination facility with
major positive economic impact to
the city.
It might be helpful to mail out
questionnaires to the hundreds of
transient boaters who use the city
marina to confirm whether the
above suggestions would encour-
age more frequent use of the city
marina. They've been informally dis-
cussed within the boating commu-
nity for years.
As a longtime frequent user of
the city marina it is truly a "jewel"
with a fine staff. But to fully benefit
the city it does need some modest
attention as suggested above. Again
the basic idea is to consider what's
needed to encourage the city mari-
na as a destination port rather than
as a transient overnight facility.

Adopta child
November is National Adoption
Month, the perfect opportunity to
remind our friends and neighbors
that every child deserves a loving
family that will nurture, encourage,
guide and cherish them.
Right now, more than 100 local
children in foster care are available
for adoption through no fault of their
own.
If you can open your heart and
home to a child, please consider
adoption.
Last year, 318 foster children in
Nassau and I)uval counties were
adopted by families like yours.
These families fell in love with one
or more children in need of a fami-
ly to call their own. They embraced
the children's individual personali-
ties and diverse interests, and wel-
comed them into their circle of love.
Adoptive families come from all
walks of life. Whether a childless
couple or a couple with several chil-
dren; whether a single parent fami-
ly or older parents whose children
are grown; whether suburbanites
or rural residents, your family may
be the next adoptive family to bring
joy to a foster child.
If you're interesting in adopting
a child, Family Support Services
would love to hear from you at (904)
421-5839. You can also get adoption
information and view portraits of
children available for adoption at

4 seek city commission seats Nov. 6


John Campbell Elwell
Fernandina Beach resident John Campbell
Elwell is seeking the Group 5 seat currently held
by Jeffrey Bunch, who is not seeking another
term.
"I believe the city taxpayers not only need, but
deserve someone with extensive business knowl-
edge representing them," Elwell said in his cam-
paign announcement.
Elwell's resume includes 37 years in the lum-
ber/forestry business in various management
capacities, including several years as director of
national sales and marketing for Rayonier,
Lumber Division where he was the recipient of
the highest Quality Award for outstanding lead-
ership.
"Bringing a level-headed business practicali-
ty into the local political process is my number one
goal," Elwell said.
With a background that includes developing
and implementing strategic plans, budgeting,
and direct line reporting responsibility, Elwell
said he brings a solid resume of private sector
business experience to the table.
"Changing the prevailing course of continuous
higher taxes for property and local business own-
ers is going to take bold leadership, fiscal expert-
ise, and political courage. I believe my back-
ground and commitment will clearly demonstrate
that I am that leader," he said
Elwell holds a bachelor's degree with a dou-
ble major in political science and history as well
as a high school teacher's certificate. His com-
munity activities include being president of a
local homeowner's association, serving on an
advisory board and serving on the Nassau County
Boys & Girls Club board of directors. He also vol-
unteers for various local youth activities and is an

"I offer the residents of Fernandina Beach an
opportunity for a new decisive voice on the com-
mission that deals with issues on an objective
and practical basis. Together we will get our city
back on track financially without sacrificing essen-
tial services or the qualities that make Fernandina
Beach our home."

Tim Poynter
Fernandina Beach City Commissioner Tim
Poynter seeks reelection to the Group 4 seat he
has held for the past three years.
"I believe that every city commissioner has a
duty to stand up for the long-term interests of the
city," he said. "I want to make sure that-this spe-
cial place remains economically healthy, vibrant
and attractive for future generations. If that means
investing in things like our beaches, our neigh-
borhoods and city assets, then we need to find
ways to do that without crippling our citizens
and businesses with excessive taxes, fees and
regulation. If we don't care about our future, we
are in fact hanging up a going-out-of-business
sign on the city. I sure don't want that, and I don't
think our citizens want that, either."
Poynter said he applies the same principles to
running the city as he does to his businesses:
good services at a reasonable cost.
"Good government doesn't have to be expen-
sive, if you look for creative ways to manage," he
said. "We can't keep doing things the same way
in these economic times and expect that our city
won't suffer. The city. commission and the city
manager need to work closely together to find the
fairest way to work with our citizens so that the
levels of service we have all come to expect can
.continue without bankrupting us. And then we


must be
accountable
to them for
every penny
we spend."
Po yn terr
said he is
proud that as
Poynter Boner a commis-
sioner he
buc k ed
entrenched interests to improve services and
the financial performance of the city's golf course
and marina. He sees even better performance
coming in the future at the marina, along with an
upgraded Front Street and an attractive new
waterfront park.
"We have some longstanding problems like
the waterfront. I want to see the city move ahead
with infrastructure'improvements that will encour-
age more private investment downtown. And as
our population ages, we must find the-ways to
improve and invest in our community that don't
involve placing increased tax burdens on our
retirees."
Poynter said he also believes that city gov-
ernment needs to find better ways of communi-
cating with citizens. "Rumors have no problem
getting around this town, but somehow the truth
is more difficult to get out. I hold town hall meet-
ings the second Wednesday of each month at 7
p.m. at Cafe Karibo. There is always a lively dis-
cussion that helps me understand issues from
other perspectives. We commissioners need to
find more and varied ways to get involved with the
citizens. And people can always find me at Cafe
Karibo."
Tim and Theresa, his wife and business part-
ner, first opened Cafe Karibo in late 2001, just after
the 9/11 disaster. Despite the resulting economic
downturn, they continued to focus on their goal
to provide good food at reasonable prices to the
community. Even in the face of the worst eco-
nomic conditions since the Great Depression,
they persevered and expanded Cafe Karibo while
embarking on a second successful venture:
Karibrew. In April of this year, they opened a
third business, Timoti's Fry Shak, just down the
street. The Poynters now have more than 50
employees, making them one of the largest
employers downtown.
Poynter grew up in Cincinnati, and graduated
from the University of Cincinnati with a bachelor's
degree from the College of Business
Administration. He moved to Fernandina Beach
in 1999 for a job; his family joined him in 2000.
They have stayed because of the island lifestyle
and friendly community environment that they
have all have enjoyed ever since.
Tim apd Theresa have been married over 30
years and have four children: Tara, Bryan, Tim
and Sean, all of whom attended Fernandina Beach
public schools.

EdBoner
Ed Boner is seeking the Group 4 City
Commission seat in the Nov. 6 election.


"About two years ago, I began to see a dis-
connect. The commission stopped listening. I
felt my voice was being heard less and the com-
mon sense solutions were being overlooked.
Basic maintenance, public safety and storm water
management all took a back seat," Boner said in
his campaign announcement.
Boner is a Fernandina native. His family his-
tory in Fernandina dates back to 1939 when Ed
Boner, Sr. moved here from Aberdeen, Wash., to
work with Rayonier, where he remained for 44
years. In the late '50's, he married Vera Breland
(Boner).
Boner and his wife Melissa live here with two
sons, who attend Fernandina Beach Middle
School and Emma Love Hardee. "My wife and I
are happily married and have been together for
about 18 years. I enjoy surfing the beaches, hik-
ing the Greenway and share your love of the his-
tory and natural beauty many of us take for grant-
ed," he said.
Boner's campaign began in the fall of 2011,
when he began attending commission meetings
and talking with former managers, commission-
ers, advisory members or "anyone I felt might
offer helpful advice. After taking the time to pre-
pare, I became convinced my background was

2 vie for seat on Port Authority board


Richard Bruce
Following 40 years in the
maritime industry and having
recently retired as vice presi-
dent and general manager of
Amelia Maritime Services, Inc.,
Richard Bruce is seeking elec-
tion to the Ocean Highway &
Port Authority District 1 seat
in the Nov. 6 general election.
Bruce has been married for
39 years to his wife, Nora, a
retired schoolteacher. His son,
David, and granddaughter
.Jennie also live in Fernandina
Beach.
Richard Bruce holds a BBA
in marketing from the
University of Georgia.
He has been an active mem-
ber of various maritime-related
organizations including the
Propeller Club of the United
States, and numerous World
Trade organizations. Locally,
he has served as president of
the Fernandina Maritime
Exchange for the past two years
and a member of the chamber
of commerce. Bruce is also cer-
tified by the U.S. Coast Guard
Department of Homeland
Security as a port facilities secu-
rity officer.
"As the board has no cur-
rent members with a maritime
background I felt that my 40
years of hands-on experience
was a unique and valuable qual-
ification that the voters would
appreciate," Bruce said.
"Our port is in a highly com-
petitive business against the
three major ports nearby.
Those ports have huge budgets


and large sales departments
with offices around the world.
They are aggressively expand-
ing and promoting their facili-
ties. Our port must promote its
great features and service or
be left behind. My experience
will help us to expand our cus-
tomer base and compete more
favorably in the future. It is
essential that we grow our port
in the number of customers,
cargo volume, ships calling at
our port and the capacity of our
terminal in order to reverse the
recent declines in those num-
bers.
"My ultimate goal is to cre-
ate jobs in Nassau County and
stimulate our economy. Having
spent my career bringing ships,
ports and cargo together I.sin-
cerely believe that my election
would be of great benefit to the
citizens of Nassau County. Life
teaches us that there is no sub-
stitute for experience, so my
campaign motto is 'Experience
Counts'."
His maritime experiences
(in reverse order) include:

HeI began work in 1977 with

Program Specialist for the
Farm Service Agency (FSA) in
Gainesville, my role broadened
to ensure that policies, proce-
dures, and program responsi-

federal laws, statutes and reg-

lowing policy and procedures


which will enhance effective

being perceptive to all con-
cerns, which is keen to under-
standing, and being available
for matters and instruction as it
pertains to the betterment of
our schools. I promise as a serv-

Pulice is the father of a

daughter Ashley is a licensed
CPA in Columbia, S.C.
"Both are college graduates

taught math and special edu-
cation at Fernandina Beach
High School for four years and
was also an assistant football
and head baseball coach.
"I realize teaching has
changed over the years, but I
have been in the classroom
and know how tough it is and
how hard good teachers really
work. I have always been a
teacher/coach and continue to
coach youth sports and teach
professionally," he said.
Police has a Florida real
estate brokers license along
with a real estate school
instructor's license issued by
the Florida Department of

teaches contracts, profession-
al ethics or core law to incom-
ing realtors for continuing edu-
cation credit. "I have many
experiences in my life but I
have always been a
teacher/coach and approach
business management with
emphasis on a team-first men-
tality. I plan to carry on this
approach at the Nassau County
School Board," he said.
Pulice left teaching in 1988
to become broker/manager of
Amelia Realty. "We all know


how turbulent the real estate
market has been in the past 24
years with extreme highs and
lows, and now we face an eco-
nomic and financial future like
never before. During the past
24 years I have been involved
with balancing budgets, cut-
ting expenses from some areas
to add to others and learning to
do more with less. In the pri-
vate sector, we as business pro-
fessionals must learn these
skills or we don't survive," he
said.
Pulice has been active in
professional organizations,
such as the Amelia Island
Nassau County Association of
Realtors. He served as presi-
dent of AINCAR, was award-
ed Realtor of the Year and com-
mittee chairman of the year,
served on the board of direc-
tors, served on the Multiple

tors, and was president of
MLS, chairman of the griev-
ance committee and chairman
of the professional standards

He has been president of
the Village Center
Condominium Association for
the past five years and is cur-
rently the treasurer on the


board of the Gateway to Amelia

past board member of the
Gateway Commons I board of
directors.
"I am an educator, a busi-
ness leader, and I have experi-
ence with boards, budgets and
negotiations. I am not a career
politician," Pulice said. "This
is the first time I have entered
politics and as previously men-
tioned, this is a time in my life
to give something back to the
community. This is not my
career, it is my passion. This
position is not a springboard
to another elected office; I have
no interest in being a county
commissioner, city commis-
sioner or state representative.
Becoming a member of the
Nassau County School Board
is the only role I am seeking
because it-is so important for
the children and the commu-
nity."

Who will stand up to Big Labor?

This year the country stands at a crossroads.


Four years of unrestrained spending, bail-outs and
ballooning debt have savaged our economy.


Yet in these tough economic times, while Americans are tightening their belts, Big Labor is raiding
workers' paychecks to fund the campaigns of their handpicked politicians.


Will your candidate for U.S. Senate stand with the union bosses who force workers to pay union
dues just to get or keep a job, or will he stand with Florida workers?



Who is right for Florida?


Bill Nelson

* Bill Nelson not only voted for,
but cosponsored "Card
Check" legislation to
eliminate secret ballot
elections from union
organizing campaigns.

* As Senator, Bill Nelson voted
to provide for the unionization
of every police officer and
firefighter in America.

* Senator Nelson has received
hundreds of thousands of
dollars in campaign
contributions from Big Labor.


Connie Mack


* Connie Mack returned his Right to
Work Candidate Survey 100%
against forcing workers to pay
union dues as a condition of
employment.

* Connie Mack opposes monopoly
union power in the public sector,
supports the. Freedom from Union
Violence Act and would repeal the
current federal authorization for
forced union dues.

* As U.S. Congressman, Connie
Mack cosponsored the National
Right to Work Act to free all
American workers from the
shackles of forced unionism.


Right now is when politicians pay


the most attention to the folks back home!

Contact Senator Bill Nelson today and ask him to apologize
to the citizens of Florida for his past support for forced unionism.


Call him at (407) 704-7980.


Urge Senator Nelson to pledge 100% support for Right to Work and
to stand up for workplace freedom.


Ask Senator Nelson where his true loyalties lie with Florida's workers,
or with the union bosses in Washington, D.C.?

Yulee High School stu-
dents have a valuable
resource in Media Specialist
Donna Whidden Perry.
After 16 years as a teacher,
she's glad she still has an
opportunity to get in front of
students when teachers send
them in for research classes.
"I teach the research
process from beginning to
end to students through their
history and English classes.
These lessons include media
literacy, avoiding plagiarism
and how to evaluate web-
sites."
Perry also collaborates
with teachers on a regular
basis in order to support their
lessons through various
resources available in the
media center including books,
videos and equipment such as
the new Kindle e-readers.
Prior to becoming the
media specialist at Yulee High
SSchool, Perry taught English
as well as Humanities, Art
History and Gifted Studies.
She believes her classroom
experience gives her a better
understanding of the needs of
both teachers and students.
Perry says YHS is deter-
mined to keep up with tech-
nology by looking into provid-
ing e-books for students to
check out via their iPhones,
iPads, e-readers or comput-
ers.
The media center has
extended hours on Tuesday
and Thursday afternoons so
that students can use the
computers to access the
Study Island program, receive
tutoring by National Honor
Society students, or just do
their homework or read for
pleasure.

The Yulee Hornet Stepmasters practice their routines after school.



Hornets stepping out


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader

Moving together in rhyth-
mic, synchronized steps, cre-
ating percussion with feet
and hands, the Yulee Hornet
Stepmasters perform their
lively routines.at football
games, pep rallies and other
school events.
Stepping has its roots in
South Africa in the 1940s and
'50s where it served as a
communication tool for min-


ers forbidden to speak while
working, explained faculty
advisor Deondra H. Starks.
"Mine workers wore gtun-
boots made out of rubber to
keep their feet dry. They,
began letting their bodies do
the talking by slapping on
the gumboots. They could
understand each other just
by sound effects."
Stepping became popular
in the mid-20th century at,
historically black fraternities
and sororities across college


campuses where it was per-
formed in ceremonies Wel-
coming pledges into mem-
bership.
Popularity increased
when it was featured in
movies like "Drumline" and
"Stomp the Yard," and stu-
dents from the Howard
University"'Beta" chapter of
Alpha Phi Alpha stepped at
President Bill Clinton's inau-
guration.
Faculty sponsors Deondra
Starks and Jean Ray super-
vise practice for the students
each Monday and
Wednesday afternoon.
"We've performed at
some community events like
the Karamu Program cele-
brating Black History at First
Missionary Baptist Church,
but we'd like to be able to do
more c' rnnriu1i. lx.ba~,,_'d
events." r ',
Team members include
Quanitasia Staten, Donese
Washington, Kamarri
Addison, O'Jonit Mai-tin,
Aliyah Sims, Kary Addison,
Kia Wells, Jacky Mhyfield,
Tiffany Bradberry and
.Michele Stemrich.
Captain Aliyah Sims said,
"Being a part of the Yulee
Hornet Stepmasters to me, is
sharing my talent with the
world. It's a way to express.
myself in many ways not only
showing my skills, but I'm
able tp show and .share my
friendship and leadership.
Being the captain, others
look up to me. I hold a signif-
icant role in keeping unity
and maintaining timely prac-
tices."
Sims says that over the
years she has realized she
adds a positive effect to the
lives of her peers.
"As a team we coordinate
our step routines. With this it
motivates and inspires me to
be the best team leader to
the YHS Hornet
Stepmasters. I look forward
to a successful year."
Stepmasters team mem-
bers are required to keep
their grades up and to com-
port themselves as ladies and
gentlemen at all times.
"They represent not just
the Stepmasters, but also
Yulee High School and their
sponsors," said Starks. 'This
is a diverse group of students
who share an interest in this
type of performance art. You
do not have to be mentally or
physically fit in the field of
dance, but just be willing to
put forth great effort. The
Hornet Stepmasters is open
to anyone who wants to be
part of this team."
The team invites and
would appreciate donations
from community organiza-
tions that would like to sup-
port the group.

WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 31,2012 NEWS News-Leader




Then the lights went


To recap from last week,
Bucko and I were on a road
trip through the South a few
weeks ago and had the good
fortune to be the only visitors
touring a deep limestone cave
one afternoon, before the cave
closed to the public for the
next two days. It was good for-
tune, yes. But then the lights
went out.
The lights had been giving
tour guide Donna some trou-
ble from the start, but it was
not a cause for worry. It was
only the first chamber, where
the lights were acting up, and
besides, she had an admitted-
ly dim, flashlight and if we
could just follow her for 50
feet or so in the dark the
lights would work throughout
the cave and all would be well.
Well, no, that's not what
happened. We were deep
inside the cave when the arti-
ficial lights went out complete-
ly. You don't know what dark
is, until you've been in a cave'
with no lights.
Bucko and I have been in
some scary spots together
over our life, but this ranks
high among the list. We knew
not to panic, we knew Donna
had a flashlight and knew her
way out. But still, it was dark.
We were lost. The flashlight,
was dim, and only illuminated
a small spot right in front of-
Donna. And what if this dim
flashlight went out too?
Hopefully someone would
remember we were in there,
the last tour of the day before
two days of no more visitors.
But what if they didn't? It was
too much to contemplate.
Instead Bucko and I just
focused on following Donna's
little flashlight to the exit; if
she could find it. Surely she
knew the way?
The going was tough, I've


blackness


got to say,
even for
nature lovers
like Bucko
and me. It
was dark!
And, even
after only an
hour in the
cave so far,
WILD the damp-
WAYS ness started
soaking into
our clothes,
Pat making the
Foster- Turley 68-degree
constant
temperature
seem colder than that.
And then there were the
sounds. When the lights were
working we didn't notice the
sounds. But now, the dripping
water and the almost-too-high-
to-hear calls of the bats
formed a backdrop. And what
is that rustling over there?
Packrats, right? Donna did say
there were rats in the cave.
Do they bother people? Do
they carry rabies? What about
those bats?
To avoid bumping our
heads on the invisible stalac-
tites, and to avoid tripping on
stalagmites and other solid
limestone protrusions, Donna
told us to crawl. She led the
way, feeling her way around
objects, shining her feeble
light back on us, which did
mostly nothing to relieve the
darkness.
We crawled single file,
touching the person in front
of us for security, slowly, slow-
ly working our way forward.
"If we can just get to the next
cavern room, I'll try the light
switch there, and then we
should be OK." Donna
advised us, trying to keep in
control of the situation and
keep her two visitors calm in


the face of darkness. Right.
It was then that I ran face-
first into the spider web! My
yell in surprise echoed
through the cavern. I'm not
squeamish about spiders, not
me, but hey, face first into a
spider web in pitch blackness
is a bit much even for me.
And what about those giant
cave spiders! Do they bite?
Trying to keep my cool, I
brushed off the web and con-
tinued crawling behind
Donna, Bucko behind me.
That's when I encountered
the worms, squishing under
my palms in the dark, those
wigglers we saw earlier. Of all
things on Earth it's worms
I'm most horrified by. This
was almost too much.
But, no place to go but for-
ward, into the darkness, fol-
lowing that darn dim flash-
light into infinity it seemed.
What next? Would we ever
find that light switch?
The bats were restless by
now too, with all this unusual
activity in their dark habitat
and they started flying into
our hair. And what's that cack-
ling? Was it a cave witch out
and about checking on the
invaders to her domain? And
ghosts, I could swear I heard
them whispering in the air
above us, all those people
who we heard about that had
been trapped in this cave in
the 1930s. Were they rising
too?
You probably have
guessed by now that this
never really happened but so
what? It was a fun story to tell
and I hope you enjoyed it.
Happy Halloween one and all!

gist on Amelia Island. She wel-

Prevent bullying,


teachers urge


Florida News Connection

TALLAHASSEE October
is National Bullying Prevention
Month, and Florida educators
are being asked to take a
pledge to stand up for bullied
students.
The National Education
Association launched a month-
long campaign called "Bully
Free: It Starts With Me" to
bring more awareness to this
growing problem.
Some 160,000 students
across the nation stay home
from school each day because
of bullying, says Becky Pringle,
N EA secretary-treasurer,
adding that the problem needs
immediate attention and edu-
cators must address more than
just the bullies and their tar-
gets.
"We also need to focus on
the bystanders. What we find to
be true is, oftentimes, the bully
wants an audience. If we take
that away, it does lead to that
bullying behavior not being as
prevalent."
Florida has an anii-bulUying
,law that requires school dis-
trict, isad opt an officiall policy


prohibiting bullying and harass-
ment of students and staff on
school grounds, at school-
sponsored events, and through
school computer networks.
Mark Pudlow, spokesman
for the Florida Education
Association, says it's important
that teachers feel empowered to
do something.
"When teachers see bully-
ing, it's a teachable moment
and I think that they're able to
say that, 'We're all in this
together, and trying to isolate
someone because they're
different is not a good
idea.'"
According to one U.S.
Department of Education esti-
mate, more than 8 million stu-
dents ages 12 to 18 reported.
being victims of bullying at
school, a little more than 30
percent of the student popula-
tion.
The "Bully-Free" program
offers resources for parents and
educators to help them identify
bullying, as well as how to inter-
vene and hw to be an advocate
for students.

TALLAHASSEE -.. ",The.
Florida Public Defender
Association and the Florida
Alcohol and Drug Abuse
Association join with preven-
tion coalitions statewide to pro-
mote the "911 Good Samaritan
Act," which encourages people
to call for medical assistance if
they witness an individual expe-
riencing a drug-related over-
dose.
This new Florida law, which
took effect Oct. 1, allows indi-
viduals to contact authorities in
such instances without fear of
being "charged, prosecuted, or
penalized" for possession of a
controlled substance if the evi-
dence was obtained as a result
of a call for medical assistance.
- This new law will reduce the
number of unintended deaths
caused by accidental alcohol
and drug overdoses.
Nationwide, lawmakers are
recognizing that it is in-the pub-
lic's best interest to encourage
people to call for help. In 2007,
New Mexico enacted the 911
Good Samaritan Act to treat
drug overdoses. It was the first
of itsklind'in the country. Since
then, similar laws have been
passed, in other states.
Here are some statistics on
druig-elated deaths:
From January-June 2011,
there were 4,329 drug-related
deaths in Florida.
The highest occurring
deaths directly caused by drugs
or alcohol were benzodi-

242-yard, tlir --i c. L rin 'i ,
performance I,% -', ii'.run-
ning back Derrick Henry, the:
Hornets were stung.42-22 by
their hosts..
"We just didn't come out
and start the game the way
we needed to," said Bobby :
Ramsay, head football coach
at Yulee. "I need to do a bet-
ter job of preparing us; I tdld
the players that.
"We will correct what
needs to be fixed as far as
mistakes between the lines
this week during the bye and
.build towards the playoffs."
The Hornets (6-3) are idle
Friday and return to the field
Nov. 9 at Hamilton County to
close out the regular season.
Henry's 242.yards came
,on 48 carries. Jason Ray had
three touches for 10 yards.
Dalton Bradley was 5-for-7 for
89 passing yards. Tristyn
Bennett reeled in three for 57
yards and Ray had two for 32.
"I thought we threw the
ball well on offense, but to
give up 14 points on turn-
overs that they run back for
touchdowns is just unaccept-
able," Ramsay said. "It's a
recipe for a loss. Trinity is
loaded With talent and to spot
them 21' is concerning. We
have to start better, especially
in the playoffs.
"Defensively, we didn't run
and get off blocks well. I
thought we had some guys
step up though. Matt Little,
Tyler Spear and4Zane Cruz all
played well."
Little had seven tackles,
Cruz had four tackles and two
assists and Spear had a pair of
tackles fora loss and he and
Marlon Register combined
for a quarterback sack.
"Our kicking game was
good I thought," Ramsay said.
"Jason Ray blocking a punt
and getting us a safety was
big for us."
The Fernandina Beach
High School Pirates take on
West Nassau at 7:30 p.m.
Friday for district runner-up.

Trout and beach fishing


steady run away
from shore to deep
water indicated a
stout beach fish
with wide shoulders. Holding
his beach rod and'reel high
into the late morning air,
Yulee's Bill Riggs pumped his
13-foot surf fishing rod, hop-
ing to set his saltwater hook
firmly into the foraging game
fish's mouth.
The local surf fishing fami-
ly, including Bill and Kara
Riggs and
son Keith
Thompson,
toted its
beach fishing
gear from
the south
end parking
lot to the
fishy waters
-OUTDOORS of Amelia
S ..._ Island's
southern
TerryLacoss shoreline,
hoping to connect with the
fall run of redfish, sea trout,
flounder, whiting, bluefish,
pompano and more.
The tide was just flooding
and nervous schools of finger
mullet were migrating along
the edges of the beach. A per-
fect cast made by Thomp-
son's six-foot cast net ensured
the local fishing party would
have enough live minnows for
its day of beach fishing.
Minutes after setting out
several beach rods rigged
with live finger mullet, Bill
Riggs had a solid strike and
was now fighting a hard run-
ning gamefish.
"We knew right off the bat
that Bill had hooked a decent
fish," Kara Riggs said. "At
first we thought it was a
shark, but as Bill began to
; reel his big catch into the
shallow surf, a large tail
sporting a black spot was a
sure sign that it was an
SAmelia Island redfish.
"It simply was a great
morning of beach fishing; we
had excellent action, includ-
ing hard fighting bluefish. We
really enjoy our family time
beach fishing, particularly at
the south end of Amelia ..
Island where saltwater fishijigf
is never a disappointment."
Certainly the fall fishing
season offers excellent beach
fishing from the footsteps of '
historic Fort Clinch' to the
southernmost tip of Amelia
Island. Look for the high
falling tide to provide the best
fishing action for a variety of
saltwater species, including
whiting, pompano, redfish,
sea trout, bluefish, flounder
and more. Best baits include t
live finger mullet, fresh
* shrimp, blue crab and sand
fleas.

NEWS-LiEADIR / FERNANDINA BEACH. FL


Ah, fall and the fresh scent of Mt. Anderson


The weather is cooler so no more'
excuses. Time to get to long overdue
yard work. The Big Guy and I are a
pretty good team, most of the time.
Some people are yard people and
some people are not and will pay any
amount of money to have someone
else keep their yard in shape. We are
yard people and can often be seen"
roaming our small acreage and
inspecting our growing things. I
truly believe they'know we are visit-
ing and do better because of it.
We ooh and ah over our magnolia
trees that were barely six feet tall
when we planted them. Now they are
double the size. We are proud par-
ents. We enjoy the hard work in the
yard. Those who don't will tell you it
never ends. You weed one day and
by golly, the gosh darn weeds are


back the next.
Dollar weed tor-
tures us. The cheer-
ful little round
SJ leaves just will not
stay gone.
The Big Guy is
very patient when I
." K decide one of my
plants really should
FROM be in another place
THE in the yard. He gets
PORCH the all-knowing
look and a shovel
and we go to work.
Dickie We have an area on
Anderson one side of the
house we call the
hospital. If we have a plant that is fail-
ing to thrive we move it and Big Guy
will offer it a variety of fertilizers and


a pep talk. We give it a certain
amount of time, but at some point
last rites may be.in order.
We agreed we were long overdue
for a thorough mulching. Mulching -
what a funny word. It is one of those
words that can be a verb or a noun.
You mulch with mulch. It almost
sounds likes a Dr. Seuss word. So
instead of endless trips to purchase
bags of mulch we decided to get one
big truck load. So with the help of a
friend who knows about trees and
mulch, Johnny Myers, the truck
arrived at our house. Careful what
you wish for. I returned home one
afternoon to find a mountain of
mulch filling our driveway. No room
for, cars, just a rather large, daunting
pile of fresh mulch. Big Guy arrived
home and looked at me and looked


at what we quickly dubbed Mount
Anderson. It was six feet high and
nearly covered our driveway. Yes, it
was a more efficient way to get large
amounts of mulch spread on our
many flower beds, but it'was far too
big a challenge for two post-65 sen-
iors with aging backs.
So there we were. A couple of
beautiful days, a mountain of mulch
and a happy marriage. So how would
the story end? First, after'many
wheelbarrows of mulch being deliv-
ered to far corners of our yard, we
determined that we needed help in
the form of a strong young man who
needed money. Enter Lamar. Lamar
looked at Mt. Anderson, smiled and
went to work.
When the mountain first appeared
in our driveway, neighbors came


over to offer sympathy and some
even helped. We begged them to
please take some of the mulch. Take
lots of the mulch. Mercifully, some
did agree. The Big Guy and I agreed
the smell of freshly processed pine
trees is a wonderful perfume, but not
enough to live with the mountain of
mulch. So with the help of our
earnest young man we spread the
mulch. We could almost feel the
thank-you's from our trees and plants
that are now all snuggly tucked in for
winter with a blanket of mulch.
Would we do it again? Ask us next
year.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your
comments. Books are available at
'local book and gift stores or online at

Wild Nite on turtles Nov. 13


The Board of Directors of
Wild Amelia has announced
that the featured speaker at
the Tuesday, Nov. 13 Wild Nite
Nature Forum will be Georgia
Sea Turtle Center Director and
veterinarian I')r. Terry Norton.
The program will begin at 7
p.m. at the Peck Center audi-
torium, 516 South 10th St. in
Fernandina Beach and is free
and open to the public. Norton
will speak about the work of
the Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll
Island, Ga., in rehabilitating
injured, sick and stranded sea
turtles along the southeast
coast, as well as the rehabili-
tation of other endangered
species that the center under-
takes.
Norton earned his Doctor
of Veterinary Medicine at T'Iuts
University: his Bachelor of
Science, at New Mexico State
University. He completed a
two-year residency in Zoo and
Wildlife Medicine at the
University of Florida and
became a Diplomat in the
American College of Zoological
Medicine in 1992. He is an
adjunct professor at the
University of Florida, North
Carolina State University, and
the University of Georgia
Colleges of Veterinary
Medicine.


In addition to his work at
the Georgia Sea Turtle Center,
Norton provides health care
for a wide range of captive ani-
mals on St. Catherine's Island,
teaches workshops for the pub-
lic, zoos, local universities and
veterinary schools, scientific
meetings, teachers, veterinary
associations, and conservation
groups. He provides veteri-
nary support and does
research for conservation
groups in Georgia, such as the
Georgia Department of
Natural Resources and the
Georgia Fish and Wildlife.
Service.
Though Norton enjoys
working with all wildlife, he
has a special place in his heart
for all types of turtles, tortois-
es and terrapins. It was his
dream to establish a center for
the rehabilitation of these rep-
tiles, and this dream was real-
ized five years ago when the
Georgia Sea Turtle Center
opened. Since then, hundreds
of thousands of visitors each
year have visited the center
and its patients, learned about
turtles and even watched some
of the surgical procedures.

nership with Wild Amelia,

the area. "I
loved Amelia
PL L r Island,"

''"Iwish I had
never left
there. It is a wonderful place
with wonderful people. I was
there when we did the revi-
.talization of Centre Street. It
was incredible.",.
. The writer says he dedcl-
ed to make Fernandina
Beach the setting for his
story because the Palace
Saloon was the perfect
hub of interaction for his
characters. He says he didn't
intend to do a travelogue for
the city but the natural
course of the story gives the
town high praise.
"There is a necessary
dark side to the story that
brings our protagonist,
Peter Larson, to the brink of
self-destruction. He has lost
everybody he loves and is
ready to let go but powerful
forces are urging him to
hang on. Every one of us
would love to be shown our
proper course. Peter may
have found his."

Hi! My name is Sheba. I
am a female Australian shep-
herd/Alaskan Husky mix
dog. I have a beautiful coat
that is black, tan and white. I
also have gorgeous, icey blue
eyes. They say I am 3 years
old, weigh 40 pounds and am
already spayed. The only bad
thing is that I am heartworm
positive. The good thing is
that the shelter has sponsors
that have donated funds to
help those of us with heart-
worms so you get an awe-
some dog like me but also get
help with the cost of heart-
worm treatment. They have
already started me on my
treatment. I have been told
that I am a very good-natured
and sweet dlog. I am at my full
size, which is not really big so
I would make a wonderful
house pet. But because of the
type of clog I am, I love to run
and would like someone to


take me on walks, etc. If you
go to www.petfinder.com you
can see my video and I know
you will fall in love me with. I
can be found at the Nassau
County Animal Services,
86078 License Road, Yulee,
491-7440, Tuesday through
Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
Saturday 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Monday.


Cuddles is an orange and
white adult female kitty who
has been declawed. She is
now in a foster home and likes
being a lap cat. Her family
recently moved to California
but decided not to take
Cuddles along. Cats are very
transportable it takes a little
extra planning and is certainly
worth the effort, especially for
one that has been in a family
for several years. Read more

Butters is one of our staff
and volunteers' favorites, an
"old soul" in a 4-year-old body!
He's an Anatolian Shepherd,
an intelligent breed known as
a guardian. He's a big fellow
and needs to be in a home
without cats, but he totally
loves people and will love you
most of all.
He's not "needy" and con-
stantly seeking attention,.but
he does want to be with you
as much as he can be, and
when you pet him the look in
his eyes says it all he leans
in on you for all the love he
can get, and he has a wonder-
ful way of "hugging" you, too.
He walks well on his leash
and if he's not already house-
broken we think he should be
easy to train. He has a gentle,
laid-back spirit, and we think
you'll love him as much as we
do,.
Sweet Zocy is a cat who's
really top-shelf! She's very
affectionate but is shy around
the other cats in the cattery,
so she likes to find a high
perch from which to survey
the surroundings. She came
to us from a house that had a


books, toys and more.
Shop early for the best bar-
gains.
Coyotes are being report-

neuter 48 cats and 3 dogs. Be
the solution to animal over-

in your care spayed and

help with lower cost options
and can help trap feral cats.

She's very friendly and has
a sweet, quiet disposition, and
