codes

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The city's Community Development
Department recently made changes
to the Land Development Code in an
effort to make new home construction
and variances easier for residents.
According to city planners Kelly
Gibson and Adrienne Burke, one
change will make the variance review
process easier for property owners in
the city, by reducing the number of
criteria to be met. These criteria will
also allow the Board of Adjustment
and Historic District Council to take
design into account when they review
property variances.
According to the planners, one revi-
sion now allows accessory dwellings in
alli cdiJcr.li:l districts, and also allows
those structures to have full kitchens.
Although tie dwll i ng- must be on the
same electric meter as' he main house,
the units can be inhabited full-time by
property caretakers or family mem-
bers. Units may not, however, be rent-
ed.

A grease fire closed Pepper's restaurant late Thursday but the Centre Street eatery reopened Friday
evening. Crews responded to a fire in the restaurant's air duct about 10:40 p.m. Firefighters
squelched the blaze quickly after climbing atop the roof to access the building's exhaust, said Fire
Chief Jason Higginbotham. He said the fire began when a gas line was disconnected while employ-
ees were cleaning. The leak ignited grease in the kitchen, but the facility's fire suppression system
contained the flames until crews could arrive. Damage was estimated at $2,500 to $5,000.


Council



on Aging


cuts staff

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
A .reorganization effort at the
Nassau County Council on Aging has
led the agency to cut nine part-time
positions from its budget, amid other
changes, according to council leader-
ship.
Existing staff would fill the gaps
created by the shakeup, said Executive
Director Janice Ancrum, who added
that she would assume the responsi-
bilities of the agency's operations man-
ager, a post vacated in November. She
said downsizing staff would not affect
the COA's programs and services.
The Couficil on Aging provides
.adult day care services in Fernandina
Beach and Hilliard, sponsors Meals on
Wheels and provides the county's only
public transportation service.
"As positions become vacant, we
will look internally to S!e- if arnyln>e :-in
take on additional responsibilities
before hiring more staff. That'decision
will result in savings to the agenc.N
Current programs and levels of service
will not be compromised," Ancrum said
via email.
COA has 70 employees: 21 full-time,
49 part-time drivers, in-home work-
ers, nutrition aides and one contract

'Common sense' ban on assault weapons urged


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
It was standing room only in cnun-
ty commission chambers atthej.ni. -
S. Page Governmental Complex in
Yulee Thursday evening.
Dozens of Nassau County residents,
clad in black, some toting petition-laden
clipboards and pressing for stricter
gun regulation, filled the commission
chamber to speak their,minds at a leg-
islative session and public forum host-
ed by State Rep. Janet Adkins.
They comprise the Concerned
Citizens Against Assault Weapons, a
grass-roots organization aimed at ban-
ning the weapons it holds responsible
for the bloodshed at Sandy Hook
Elementary in Newtown, Conn., last
month and at Taft High School in Los
Angeles.
Jennifer Harrison, a Fernandina
Beach resident'and co-chairwoman of
the group, urged Adkins and state law-


makers to pass "common sense" leg-
islation outlawing assault weapons and
high-capacity amriunition magazines.
'"We came here tonight to show you
the number, the many in this commu-
nity, who found what happened at
Sandy Hook to be totally unaccept-
able," said Harrison, whose words
elicited a standing ovation from the
audience.
Harrison drew comparisons
between the Sandy Hook massacre,
which claimed 26 lives, and the stab-
bing spree at a Chengping, China ele-
mentary school on the same day, in


which 23 people were wounded, but
none was killed.
"The difference in that Chinese
school was all the children survived....
The increasing number of deaths from
these incidents is made possible by
these weapons with large capacity
ammunition clips," she said.
Phil Scanlan, a former county com-
mission candidate, said from 1928-63
the United States averaged less than
two mass murders per year, compared
to nearly 20 mass murders per year
from 1976 onward. He attributed the
rising violence to the prevalence of


assault weapons. ers with guns or posting armed guards

WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 16,2013 NEWS News-Leader


COA Continuedfrom 1A
employee, a dietitian.
Ancrum said the decision to
downsize the part-time positions
followed a review of the agency
budget to determine where
duties and services could be
streamlined. The savings real-
ized as a result of the downsiz-
ing and not filling the opera-
tions manager position would
be about $12,000 per month,
she said.
"That will help us to pay
down debts we owe (such as a
fuel bill) and introduce new pro-
grams to the community," said
Ancrum. Last August, the
Nassau County Commission
learned that the council had fall-
en $85,000 behind on gas pay-
ments owed to the county since
its transportation vans operate
using the government fuel
pumps.
COA is in the midst of a cap-
ital campaign to raise funds for
a new senior center and the con-
tinuation of existing programs,
So far, the agency is more than
$2 million short of its fundrais-
ing goal.
COA is seeking the deed
from the Nassau County
Commission to a property on
14th Street that the council cur-
rently uses for its transporta-


tion hub and wants to use as
collateral in a bank loan to fund
the construction of its new sen-
ior center.
Nassau County Attorney
David Hallman has not yet
given a legal opinion on the
county's ability to give the deed
to the council.
The Council on Aging gen-
erated $2.9 million in revenue in
2010, according to its tax filings,
more than half of which $1.6
million went to paying the
salaries of its 90 employees that
year.
"Change is difficult, but this
is necessary so that the agency
can be as fiscally responsible
as possible, and continue to
attract funders, donors and vol-
Sunteers," Ancrum said of the
recent cuts.
'The senior population is
definitely growing, and we cer-
tainly want the community to
support us every step of the
way. Being accountable for
every expenditure will certain-
ly be a plus for us as we look for
ways to diversify funding and
turn the page forward towards
a new year."

TREES CUTA AIRPORT.


ROBERT FIEGE/NEWS-LEADER
Crews lave begun cutting trees on city airport property as part of a program to improve safety by eliminating taller
trees. City officials agreed last fall to undertake a tree mitigation project to address obstruction issues created by
trees on airport and adjacent city-owned property. About 300 trees, mostly natural slash pines 75 to 110 feet tall,
are to be cut. The Florida Department of Transportation awarded the city a grant in excess of $200,000 to assist
in the tree mitigation plan.


CITY continued from A
be 7.5 feet from the Wide of the
property and were limited to 12
feet in height and 500 square
feet in size. Now they can be
placed 3 feet from the side and
rear of the property, can be up
to 25 feet high, and up to 625
square feet..
"We heard from architects
several times a week asking us
about this," Burke said. "A lot of
people just dropped the project.
We've had people coming in and.
waiting for the changes to hap-
pen."
Another change in the LDC
will be helpful to those con-
structing houses on smaller city
lots. Formerly, setbacks for new
construction were required to
be 25 feet, which is more appro-
priate for suburban neighbor-
hoods, but is not the standard
for historic areas. Residents
wishing narrower setbacks had
to get a variance, which was not
guaranteed to be approved by
the city.
Now residents who want
narrower setbacks can get a
variance more quickly, it will
not cost as much as before,
and it is guaranteed to be
approved. ,
Parking restrictions for



GUNS Continuedfrom 1A
this is occurring, but I feel too
much emphasis is being put on
guns."
Maggie Carlson, co-chair-
woman of CCAAW, said via
phone Friday that she was
pleased with the turnout, which
added 85 signatures to the
group's petition seeking the
ban on assault weapons.
"We're not saying gun con-
trol," she said. "We're saying,
'Ban assault weapons.'"
On a list of industrialized
nations with high populations,
the United States is 10th in gun-
related deaths, said Carlson.
She said other nations endure
their share of violence, but the
rise in bloodshed in the U.S. is
tied to the availability of assault
weapons.
'There seems to be an indi-
cation that people would accept
having armed guards always
around children, and they have
to stop and ask themselves,
'What is going on that things
are so bad that babies have to
go to school with, armed
guards?'"

newly built properties are also
more flexible than previously.
Chapter 7 of the Land
Development Code now allows
shared parking, and reduces
excess parking. This makes
Fernandina Beach more like
other beach communities with
"moderate seasonal population
variations," according to a city
document.
Landscape standards asso-
ciated with parking will be
addressed in the near future.
Burke and Gibson also
noted new home construction
in the city has picked up con-
siderably in the past year,
compared to the last five years,
with 58 single-family homes
built.
Changes were also recently
made to the city's sign code.
Neon signs that are two square
feet or less are now allowed in
the front windows of business-
es within the historic district,
and business owners can have
two permanent signs at their
sites instead of just one.

good v
Florida colleges attract stu-
dents with natural amenities
like warm weather and sun-
shine, but there is more than
what catches the eye or tans
the skin.
Florida schools also offer
some of the best values
among U.S. colleges, meas-
ured by academic quality,
affordability, graduation rates,
etc. A new survey by
Kiplinger's magazine ranks six
Florida schools among the
elite public colleges across
the country.
The University of Florida
ranked third within a list of
the top 100 values in public
education. Five other Florida
schools also placed within the
top 64: New College, No. 7;
Florida State University, No.
26; University of Central
Florida, No. 42; University of
South Florida, No. 57: and
University of North Florida,
No. 64.
Private schools are omit-
ted from the list. They pro-
vide similar educations, but,
despite prestigious names
and famous professors often
carry lofty price tags:

The University of
North Florida
improved dramati-
cally in its ranking
thisyear

age debt following gradua-
tion.
The final category -
indebtedness has become a
hot topic among students and,
of course, their parents. In
fact, there is reportedly $1 bil-
lion in outstanding student
loans across the U.S.
Florida State University is
a rival to the University of
Florida in many aspects, not
just athletics. FSU has a lower
graduation rate (50 percent)
than Florida, and carries
higher annual costs ($17,028
in-state) and more indebted-
ness among graduates
($22,139).
South Florida carries one
distinction: its admittance rate
is 38 percent, the lowest
among its in-state counter-
parts. This would indicate
USF is the most difficult
school in which to earn
acceptance, although the
number and quality of appli-
cants vary by school.
North Florida also earns
some recognition. The
Jacksonville-based college
improved dramatically in its
ranking from last year to this
year. UNF went from No. 94
to No. 64 this year, while
offering the lowest in-state
costs at $15,625 -and impor-
tantly the least indebtedness
among graduates.
The outlook for public col-
leges has worsened in recent
years amid tighter funding
from their respective states.
In response, schools have
increased class size and
downsized administration. All
the while, they have continu-
ally increased their tuitions.
Once again this past year,
college costs went up, regard-
less of a sluggish economic
picture. Tuition and other
costs increased by more than
4 percent year over year at
U.S. schools.
The higher costs compli-
cate the picture for students.
They must commit more
money to attend college, with-
out any assurances they will
land a job. And often, they are
left with outstanding loan bal-
ances after graduation.
Richard Vedder, with the
Center for College
Affordability and Productivity,
offers these sobering words:
"The notion that college is a
ticket to a good, middle-class
life of prosperity is perceived
to be less true today."

Equine healing program in Yulee


HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
Mobile veterinarian Dr. George Lewis takes a listen to
a friendly mule.



Have vet bag,



will travel


HEATH ER A. PERRY
News-Leader
With almost 6,000
patients in his computer,
mobile veterinarian Dr.
George Lewis stays very
busy.
His client list includes
critters from all over Amelia
Island and Yulee, as well
as Kingsland and Folkston,
Ga.
Lewis offers a variety of
services from routine check-
ups and vaccinations to mid-
dle of the night calls for col-
icky horses, to treating sick
dogs, cats and rabbits.
After obtaining his
Veterinariae Medicinae
Doctors at the University of
Pennsylvania, Lewis prac-
ticed six years in his home
state before moving to
Nassau County 15 years ago.
His practice serves
every kind of animal from
2,000-pound Clydesdales
and bulls to tiny mice and
hamsters.
"I saw a need for a mobile
vet and did it, serving
approximately 60 percent
large and 40 percent small
animals. We try very hard to
be affordable and reason-
able."
Dr. Lewis likes the free-
dom, travel and variety of
his practice. One of the most
unusual animals he's ever
met was an 11-foot reticulat-
ed python.
"It wedged itself into a
drain pipe and we had
to get it out of there. That
was really something.
Evidently, someone had just
dumped it out of a vehicle
and it was pretty banged up,
but we made sure it found
an appropriate home," said
Lewis.
The busy vet is active in
his community, giving


One of the most
unusualjobs he ever
had was retrieving

from a drain pipe.

school talks and offering vol-
unteer educational services
for the 4-H program.
"I talk to them about
what it means to be a vet
and what's required, empha-
sizing the need for good
grades and staying in
school."
When compared to
James Herriott, famous vet-
erinarian author of All
Creatures Great and Small,
Lewis laughs and says, "He
kind of romanticized (the
profession), but I really am
the only mobile vet in the
county."
At some point, Lewis
hopes to write his own book,
which he says will be "much
more realistic."
Describing his wife
Dayl, who also is his book-
keeper, as the glue that
keeps it all together, Lewis
identifies himself as the
"vice president in charge of
not much."
The couple has five chil-
dren, Alexandria, Emma,
twins Mattie and Katie, and
son Aubre, and too many
pets to list.
Business hours are "pret-
ty much" by appointment
during the hours of 8 a.m.-6
p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-
2 p.m. Saturday and usually
emergencies only on
Sunday.

HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
"Ever since I was six years
old, I've wanted a horse
ranch. It took me until 2004,
but I've finally got it," said
Stay'N Country Ranch owner
Missy Freeman, who with her
husband Schad opened their
ranch in June 2004 as a full
service equine boarding and
training center.
Missy rides both English
and Western disciplines and
was very successful compet-
ing at horse shows through-
out Southeast Georgia and
Florida over the years.
In 2008, Stay'N Country
expanded its services to
include educational programs
on safety, responsibility and
education of horses through
summer camps and riding les-
sons.
The next expansion came
in 2010 when a reward pro-
gram for the Boys and Girls
Club was added to recognize
youth in the community who
go above and beyond from a
service standpoint.
A reading program devel-
oped in 2011 focused on
equine learning for third and
fourth graders for the Oceans
of Fun reading program.
Their most exciting expan-
sion is in the works now as
they work on implementing a
new program designed to
help children, adolescents
and adults with ADHD, anxi-
ety, eating disorders, depres-
sion, autism, at-risk youth,
PTSD, personality issues and
many other mental, behav-
ioral and/or learning disor-
ders through Equine
Facilitated Psychotherapy and
Equine Facilitated Learning.
Dr. Carlene Taylor,
founder of LightHorse
Healthcare, Inc. said, "What
we correct in the context of
one relationship (even a
horse/human relationship)
transfers to other relation-
ships and facets of life.
Whenever we love and experi-
Sence love, the opportunity to
heal is present."
In Equine Facilitated
Learning, the relationship
with the horse is used to
show clients their truest self.
Clients learn and incorporate
social skills with personal
exploration of feelings, behav-
iors and repetitive patterns in
one's life, noted Taylor,
Stay'N Country will be a

The Lighit Horse expansion
will not only provide a great
service to children, teens and
adults through Equine
Facilitated Learning, it will
also have additional benefits.
opening g this new pro-
gram will allow me to hire
additional staff to support our-
community," said Freeman.
"We especially want to help
vets with PTSD because right
now, they have to go to
Gainesville."
The program will focus on
the very basics of horseman-
ship, teaching participants
how the horses communicate,
how to groom and feed them,
and become completely famil-
iar with all aspects of the
horses long before they're
ready to graduate to the rid-
ing program, said Freeman,
who wants the emphasis to be
on the basics and foundation
rather than the riding aspect.
"Horses can read someone
right away. I've never pushed
my horses to learn anything,
I've always let them learn
things at their own level
instead of making them do
something."
SDuring a recent training
exercise, that philosophy paid
off when a group of 17 people
of various moods and tem-
peraments participated in a
free form exercise.
"Because of the way my
horses have been handled,
every single one of my horses
approached these people. It's
really neat to watch. I'm excit-
ed for this to take off."
Freeman says with her
love of psychology, she's
always wanted to do some-
thing with horses and teach-
ing kids but didn't think any-
thing would ever come of it

A small electrical fire shut down a local pet boarding and grooming salon about 3:30 p.m. Friday. Fernandina Beach Fire Chief Jason Higginbotham said crews responded to
Hot Paws on South Eighth Street, left, after wiring in the business caught fire.Light smoke was coming from the building, but staff removed the animals inside and city and
county fire crews worked quickly to contain the flames, said EMS Chief Fino Murallo. There were no reported injuries to people or animals. Damage to the facility was minimal,
Murallo said. "We got all of our dogs and our two bunnies out safe and that's what is most important," said Pam McMullen, an office manager. Hot Paws employee Anthony
Rivera comforts dogs after the incident, right.

Folk school


helps students


achieve flow
Jan Davidson doesn't have to exaggerate
- although he does wax poetic when he
talks about the place where he works, the
John C. Campbell Folk School in
Brasstown, N.C. And when his staff puts
together an annual catalog inviting people
to come and learn, the photographs are
real. No need to gild the
lily.
/ This folk school sand-
Swiched between Murphy
00. S and Hayesville in the
Smoky Mountains is a
parcel of paradise, a place
where you can smell bread
baking and wood fires
burning and chocolate
FROMC cooling. You can hear
S:THE lathes turning and black-
S'HONME smiths hammering and
voices singing. The school
OFFICE teaches a version of just
**- about everything from-
Phil Hdgins autoharp to weaving a bul-
PhilHudg ush hat.
"Brasstown has always had a magic
about it," says Davidson, school director.
He should know. He's been at the school
for 20 years, and he has seen "people start
careers and find soul-mates, realize lifelong
dreams and check off bucket-list items,
every week of the year."
In the meantime, he says, they relieve
stress, unleash creativity and achieve flow.
The "flow" part stumped me, so I asked.
Well, Davidson says, "it happens to people
when they're so engrossed in something,
they forget everything else. We all do this...
sometimes. People working on a craft, espe-
cially in a group it takes hold of them. It's
one of the highest states of bliss that a
human can reach."
A few minutes of flow, he says, can be
more restorative than a good night's sleep.
This dispenser of flow, the folk school, is
big on tradition and history. But, most of all,
Davidson says, it's big on things that are
human.
"The individual expression and social
interaction that are encouraged through
music, crafts, nature studies, gardening,
cooking, and dance are still meaningful to
people today, regardless of where they live,"
he writes in the 2013 course catalog.
So people from all over the nation sign
up for a week or a weekend, and they come
to immerse themselves in their work, sur-
rounded by the most serene scenery in the
South.
It's certainly not their regular life. It's
more like what people look for in a vacation,
Davidson says, but it's even more than that.
People take vacations often to kick back and
be lazy. At the folk school, people are learn-
ing; they're concentrating on a different
kind of work, something that's challenging,
but also rewarding.
I hope to sign up in 2013, Jan. For 20
years or more, I've been promising myself a
week or a weekend at the folk school. I
have a guitar my wife gave me that's hardly
been touched; I have two lathes that are
gathering dust but no sawdust; if nothing
else, I could learn to make truffles.
It's comforting to know that a school like
this is still thriving, keeping alive a tradition
that started 87 years ago. We all need com-
fort in this uncomfortable world. And a little
flow would make it even better.

SVIEWPOINT/Gov. RICK SCoT/TALLAI IASSEE



Resolutions for a new


As we enter 2013, like a lot of folks I'm
reflecting on the years' past to find ways that
we can add to our previous successes in help-
ing Florida families. We made a lot of progress
in 2012, but a new year means we have anoth-
er 365 days to improve education, grow jobs
and make sure the cost of living for Florida
families is low. To do so, I've put together a list
of my resolutions that will benefit Florida fami-
lies:
1. Grow More Jobs. Jobs are my absolute
top priority. I ran on a platform of job creation,
I've promised to deliver 700,000 new private
sector jobs in seven years and so far we're
well on our way with more than 200,000 jobs
created by Florida businesses in two years.
While we've had great successes, there's still
more to do. To grow more jobs and provide
each and every Florida family with the oppor-
tunity to pursue and live the American dream,
we have to be the most business friendly place
in the world because successful businesses
hire people. To do so we've already cut 2,300
regulations, we've eliminated the business tax
for 75 percent of Florida businesses and for
2013 I'm looking to cut it for 80 percent of
businesses. Today, Texas is ranked number
one for job creation, but I've already told Gov.
Rick Perry that he should prepare for Florida


to soon take the place of
the national leader in job
creation.
2. Improve Florida's
Education System. The
decisions we make today
have tremendous effects
.... on future generations, so
for families to grow and
prosper in Florida, we
have to make sure we're
meeting the needs of
future generations by providing a quality edu-
cation. To do so I've proposed my College and
Career FIRST initiative, which will provide
money for teachers to buy supplies they use in
the classroom, cut the red tape and regula-
tions that burden teachers and put a hold on
creating any new testing requirements that do
not support our transition to Common
Core. I've also asked state colleges and univer-
sities to hold the line on tuition increases.
Tuition at universities has gone up on families
by more than 65 percent over the last five
years, and if we don't stop this dramatic climb
we will make it impossible for most students to
get a degree without leaving school with
tremendous debt. We want our children to
have the blessings of the American dream, and


[year
to do so we have to support future generations
by creating a world class education system
that allows Florida families to compete and
succeed.
3. Continue to Focus on Families. When 1
was in high school, my teacher gave us a test
to tell us what career would suit us best. My
test told me I should be a social worker
because I love working with people and solv-
ing problems. I'm excited about getting into
communities in 2013 and having the opportu-
nity to hear what's going on in the lives of
Floridians to find more ways to help families
get jobs, a great education and keep the cost of
living low.
Finally, I can't forget my job as a grandfa-
ther. Over the holidays, my 14-month-old
grandson, Auguste, took his first steps.
As he grows and learns his way through the
world, Ann and I want to make sure we're
there to help guide and support him. Like
every parent and grandparent, we want to
make sure that our kids are safe and that
they have access to a quality education, so that
they can pursue the career of their dreams,
and ultimately, start a family of their own. In
2013, we will continue to work every day to
make Florida the best place in the world for.
families.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


More taxes
At first I was really upset when I
saw the story about raising taxes -
again! in the paper ("City ponders
new beach, fire fees, taxes," Jan.
11). But when I calmed down and
gave it some thought it made per-
fect sense, of course they'll raise
taxes, it's easy and a quick solution.
When you have a history of putting
people that are unqualified, and
some just downright incompetent
in political office,.this is what they
do to fix what they've created, and
we the people are as much to blame
as they are!
Some years ago the city "upgrad-
ed" our drainage system, it was
working fine but they saw a need to
fix it, so now we have standing water
for weeks in the street, the drainage
system they put in is sinking into
the ground, three-quarters full of
dirt and covered up by weeds, the
water now drains into our front
yards and stands under the houses
causing a "brown fungus" that rots
the floor timbers and is a great cost
to replace.
They used to clean out the drains
three times a year but now with the
economy in the tank we don't even
get that anymore, resulting in all
that labor and materials being wast-
ed in time and money and now we
have to pay a $4 monthly "storm
water waste" fee that is a direct
result of the city's blunder and stu-
pidity, and when asked when we
can expect a fix to the probleri
we're told it's in planning.
Right!
The city owns a three-quarter-
acre wooded lot on our street that
stays wet and is a mosquito breed-
ing paradise and after 15 years of
complaining and pleading it's still
there with no effort by the city to do
anything to fix it, it's not cost feasi-
ble I've been told, and Mosquito
Control doesn't spray it because
"the county's too big." Huh? We
have even offered to maintain it if
the city will clear the lot, but we're
told it's city property and not "fea-
sible" at this time.
So now we have another batch of
commissioners and such" that are
going to fix our problems right -
they're going to tax us some more
and cut services again. This is what
you get when you listen to people
that tell you if you don't vote you're
a bad American, if you don't vote for
the lesser of two evils you have no
right to complain. Well, all I'm going
to say to you is how's that working
out. for you?
I know not all people running
for office are guilty of the things
I've said here, it's just too damn
few of them are getting in office for
a number of reasons and we have
got to start demanding a better
class of liars and thieves running
for office and next time you're in
the voting booth and don't like
your choices write on the ballot in
big bold letters None of the
Above! Stop voting for the lesser of
two evils, it does not work! If
you really believe in your candidate
then by all means vote for
them, but think about it, don't
just vote to say you voted because if
you do you're a big part of the prob-
lem!
Here's a suggestion for the fire
fee problem, after responding
to a fire alarm send them a bill!
Yeah, I know what most of you
are thinking, "Who determines
what's a fair price?," "I already pay
taxes for this" and how is that
working out for us? Let the fire chief
figure it out, he's the chief! This
way some of us get a break and
they're there if you need them
and the firemen are paid a decent
wage.
I'm going to stop here because
most of you are bored with it and
tired of hearing about it, but if we
don't do something soon it'll be too
late, and as for myself I'm tired of
getting hit with the stinky end of
the stick!

Re: "Yulee statue affront to
democracy." Jan. 11.
(The letter writer) has failed to
grasp the issues surrounding the
proposed Yulee statue. It is not, as he
would have it, an "affront to democ-
racy" or a celebration or validation of
slavery. It is about the founding of
the new Fernandina, statehood and
his place and ours, both regionally
and nationally.
Slavery was an issue in Europe
and in the founding of our nation. It'
has taken centuries to begin to
process this in a compassionate
manner. How foolish and insensi-
tive does he think the people sup-
porting this initiative are? Were his
opinions valid, we should level
Mount Vernon and the Washington
Monument. We need to get rid of
Monticello and the Jefferson
Memorial.
While we are pursuing this rein-
vention of the past, would he suggest
that we shred all dollar bills
(Washington was a slave owner
whose wealth was derived from slav-
ery)? Tear up $2 bills and melt down
all nickels (there again, a slave
owner owned and profited mightily
fiom this institution)? The examples
are legion.
While he has adequate access to
information via opinions on the
Internet, he has chosen to interpret
his information from a negative view-
point. That is his prerogative.
Unfortunately, he has brought noth-
ing new to the discussion.
Ron Kurtz
Fernandina Beach

I smell a rat
I smell a rat and hopefully the
Nassau County Commission has
also gotten a good whiff. According
to the News-Leader ("City ponders
new beach, fire fees, taxes," Jan.
11), Fernandina City Manager Joe
Gerrity presented five potential rev-
enue streams to his commission-
ers "facing another difficult budget
year." Two of the five were (1) an
island-wide fire tax district, and (2)
an island-wide public safety district.
These are both ideas that have
recently been floated by that emi-
nent local capitalist, former city
commissioner Ron Sapp, and a few
others, who have for years argued
that the south end of Amelia Island
does not pay its "fair share" to
Fernandina.
In the years I have lived here,
Mr. Sapp and cohorts have spear-
headed two failed attempts at annex-
ation of the south end, both losing
by over 95 percent of the vote. At
least in those efforts the proponents


were honest enough to admit that
the only purpose for the proposed
annexation was to lower the city
residents' taxes while raising the
taxes of the south end residents,
"where all the money is." (My quo-
tations herein are not attributable to
any one particular person, but
rather to comments I have heard
around the island.)
Realizing that such an annexa-
tion will never pass, the efforts have
now shifted to a back-door approach
- "take over utilities, fire and public
safety on the south end, and we will
have them." I will be the first to
admit that is true. If Fernandina
ever gets control of those services,
we south enders will be writing a
property .tax check to the city of
Fernandina along with our county
taxes, which combined will be a
substantial increase in what we are
currently paying.
The two main arguments that
have been made in support of
island-wide fire tax and public safe-
ty districts are (1) the economies of
scale, i.e., it will be less expensive if
one entity provides these services,
and (2) Fernandina is already pro-
viding some of these services and
not getting reimbursed.
These are both bogus argu-
ments. As to (1), there are only two
ways Fernandina could achieve a
positive budget result from this
plan. One would be to substantially
increase south end tax payments
and fees to Fernandina, and/or
implement substantial personnel
reductions leading to reduced serv-
ices. Ask the county fire-rescue per-
sonnel and sheriff's deputies who
have so professionally and effi-
ciently provided the south end with
excellent service for many years at
reasonable cost how they feel about
these proposals. And of course, the
new revenues to shore up the city's
budget would mean a correspon-
ding loss to the county, the likely
result being an increase in county
taxes to make up for the loss. As to
(2), we on the south end would like
to see the evidence that Fernandina
is providing these services in the
county without reimbursement. I
understand there is a "mutual" assis-
tance agreement between the city
and county that in the event of a
catastrophic occurrence, each
would come to the assistance of the
other, but this works both ways. In
the 18 years I have lived on the
island, I have never witnessed a city
fire or public safety vehicle
respond in the county. I'm not say-
ing it has never happened, but it
must be a rare event, and if it has
happened it has likely happened
both ways.
I and most other south enders


think Fernandina is a lovely, his-
toric, quaint city and we gladly trav-
el the state and county highways
into the downtown area to support
the local merchants and restaurants
(who do a great job in spite of the
shabby treatment they say they
receive from the city), and we do not
begrudge the substantial tax rev-
enue the city receives from our
expenditures there.
However, we have no desire to
become residents of a city, for no
other purpose than to contribute
more tax revenue to the city cof-
fers (no "plan of services" has ever
been presented to the south end
itemizing what benefits we would
receive from annexation).
There is also our concern of how
poorly, over the years, the city has
been run as compared to the coun-
ty.
What city the size of Fernandina
borrows $5-6 million in one of the
worst economic times in decades
for projects that apparently have
not even been conceived of, or
amasses huge legal fees and liabil-
ities that a city 10 times its size
would be embarrassed about, or
spends tens of thousands of dollars
on multiple waterfront development
studies (should be renamed "stud-
ies on how to develop the water-
front without allowing any outside
developers to make any money"),
with the only visible improvements
being a small shack with a tin roof
and wooden walkways around the
marina area?
With a little leadership and a will-
ingness to bring in some outside
expertise and money, the
Fernandina waterfront could be the
showcase of the East Coast. And
then there are the ongoing issues
concerning the management, or
more correctly, mismanagement,
of the airport, the marina and the
city golf course, and what has been
over the years a steady turnover in
city managers. We are quite con-
tent to live outside the city limits
and observe the turmoil rather than
become a part of it.
I would encourage Mr. (Gerrity to
concentrate on the other three rev-
enue sources he has identified. I
don't speak for them, but I can not
imagine The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island, Omni Amelia Island
Plantation or any of the homenown-
er associations or other residents on
the south end supporting the
Fernandina city manager's propos-
als as I have discussed herein,
and unless the county commission
suddenly goes blind, deaf and
dumb, they will never buy into this
either.

Our wild waters


Thanks to the wonders of
modern biology we know
some individual animals that
frequent our waters in the
wintertime. Plenty of birds
have tags, but I'm talking
about big individuals, some of
the largest in the sea.
.ast week reports came in
that Mary Lee was located in
the near shore waters of
Jacksonville Beach, right
beyond the breakers. Mary
Lee is 16 feet long and weighs
about 3,500 pounds, a fine
female representative of her
species if there ever was one.
As I write this, Mary Lee is a
bit north of Jacksonville, right
off Fernandina Beach in fact.
Another member of her clan,
Genie, a bit smaller at 2,300
pounds but still a mature
female, was also in our area
the past few weeks. ,
Mary Lee and Genie are
great white sharks that were
captured for a few minutes in
Cape Cod, Mass., waters last
September, outfitted with
transmitters, named and
released to roam the oceans
once again. These shark
researchers have come up
with inspirational names for
their subjects. Mary Lee, a
magnificent beast, was named
for Ocearch researcher Chris
Fischer's mother. Genie was
named for Eugenie Clark,
who has been studying sharks
since the 1950's.
By using transmitters
attached to the dorsal fins, the
sharks can be tracked on a


WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster- Turley


real time
basis. Genie
and Mary
Lee are the
first tagged
sharks to
venture into
our area. It
became a bit
of an emer-
gency when
data showed
that Mary
Lee was in
the surf in
Jacksonville
Beach a


prime spot for human surfers.
The police closed off the
waters for a few hours until
the transmitters showed that
Mary Lee had moved further
offshore. Genie has not yet
ventured close enough to
shore to close the beaches but
she, too, is lurking nearby.
You can follow the movements
of Genie and Mary Lee your-
self by logging onto the
Ocearch website:
http://sharks-
ocearch.verite.com.
No doubt many other great
white sharks without radio
transmitters are out there too,
especially this time of year.
One reason they are in our
waters in the winters is to see
if they can nab a tasty right
whale calf, like the baby that
is with its first-time mother
Black Heart. Right whale
calves are about the length of
Mary Iee and Genie, fiom 13
to 15 feet long and make for a


fine meal if their mothers are
not diligent in protecting
them.
We know that Black Heart
visited us for a few days
recently due in part to the
photos taken by Amelia Island
resident Linda Legg from her
high-rise vantage point in the
Sea Dunes condominiums.
Linda sent me her photos and
I passed them on to Barb
Zoodsma, the NOAA
Southeast U.S. Right Whale
Recovery Program
Coordinator who enlisted the
help of other whale
researchers to identify the
whales involved. Meantime
photos of these whales were
also posted on Facebook by
Fernandina residents Sandra
Baker-Hinton and Pam Meyer,
helping researchers gather
more data points on Black
Heart and her offspring.
All right whales have dis-
tinctive patterns due to the
callosities on their heads and
other markings and these
identifying characteristics stay
with them through life. The
New England Aquarium main-
tains a log of all right whales
that have been identified at
http://r wcatalog.neaq.org/Te
rms.aspx. There you will learn
that Black Heart (aka number
3540) was born in 2005 to a
mother named Wart (aka
number 1140) who has not
been sighted since 2010. At
eight years old, Black Heart is
a bit precocious since the
average age of first birth is

Black Heart and her first calf were photographed by Linda Legg from her condomini-
um window on the south end of Amelia Island.


about nine to 10 years old.
Most right whales in this log
have only numbers and no
names. Black Heart, though,
was named for the black
marking on her forehead. I
can only guess how Wart got
her name. You can learn more
about these whales, including
current whale sightings in our
waters by looking at:

If you are vigilant you too
might see a whale offshore


this winter and it may be a
right whale that is a known
individual, or it may be a
humpback whale instead. If
you do see a whale please
take photos, since experts can
sometimes tell individuals
apart and all data is important
to the survival of these
exceedingly rare and endan-
gered creatures. When you
see whales please contact 1-
888-97-WHALE to officially
report it and they will instruct
you from there.
You are much less likely to


actually see Mary Lee or
Genie, the great white sharks
- here's hoping but thanks
to their transmitters and web
site we can all still follow their
movements. It's a wild world
out there in our ocean, and
now, with the help of
researchers we too can get a
glimpse of the individuals that
inhabit it.

to counter scams


Here are the last of the
Seniors vs Crime cases sub-
mitted for our annual report
to the Attorney General.
Eviction Notice. John
Smith contacted SVC about
aW' evictioWh'hoti'Cd frd6f'ii f1
office of the apartments
where he has been living for
the past three years. He had
lost his job apd had exhausted
his savings. He spoke to the
office regarding letting him
stay on a month to month
basis, as he had always paid
on time and couldn't move for
two more months. They
advised that if he stayed on a
month to month basis his rent
would increase by $200. They
advised his only option was to
sign a new lease, which he
did. At the time he contacted
SVC he was late with the cur-
rent month's rent, so once
again inquired of the apart-
ment office if there was any
way he could vacate without
incurring any fines or a bad
credit report being filed.
Their answer was negative
and advised they needed a 60-
day notice. We arranged for a
meeting with Mr. Smith and
the apartment manager. After
meeting with the apartment
manager, an agreement was
made and a note verifying
arrangements was signed.
Mr. Smith could vacate with
no penalties or bad credit
referrals.
Vitamins and More. Mary
Jones placed an order for vita-
mins online. After doing so
she was transferred to a rep-
resentative of Best Vacations
Ever. She was offered a vaca-
tion trip to Orlahdo and park
passes to Disney World. The
cost was $334. She sent a
check along with an applica-
tion.
A friend subsequently told
Mary that the back of the'
application advised that she
must have at least $7,500 on
deposit in order to make the
trip. This suggested that it
was a timeshare sales
attempt. Mary Jones sent a
letter to Best Vacations Ever
to request her money back
and to advise she was sorry
that she didn't qualify. Best
Vacations Ever sent her three
$100 gift cards for unknown
hotels in the Orlando area.
Mary Jones was not intelrest-
ed in the cards and returned
them.
The company refused to
return her money. Best
Vacations Ever was contacted
by SVC. They agreed to make
the refund to Mary Jones.
Mary Jones received a credit
on her credit card for $304.
She questioned why a differ-
ent amount. The difference
was for the vitamins that she
had ordered.
Tired Alarm Salesman. A


representa-
tive of a
I security sys-
tem compa-
S ny knocked
at Candy
% C.I',.--1-. front
B door. Candy
Cane, who is
disabled and
SENIORS wheelchair
vs.CRIME ridden,
talked to the
salesman for
David a while with
Blacklock him outside
her door. He
soon advised that he was tired
and asked to come in to sit.
She allowed him to come in.
Soon thereafter his technician
joined him and asked to see
her security system. She
already had a service with
ADT. But she agreed to let
him look.
After a while she went to
the room where her service
was installed and realized the
technician had removed her
ADT system and installed a
new alarm system. She felt at
that time that she had no
choice but to sign a contract
with the new company. The
agreement she signed was for
42 months, which she did not
realize until after she signed.
Her daughter had her write a
letter to the new company to
terminate the contract for
service she had never
requested. The company
advised that the three-day
rescission time had passed
and they would do nothing.
She was now paying for two
security systems. SVC sent a
letter to the new alarm com-
pany.
The answer from them
advised they admitted to no
wrongdoing on their part and
that Candy Cane was well
aware of what was happening
to replace her old system.
However, they did agree to
remove the system and
refund all payments paid to
date.

Stolen steel
AJacksonville man accused
of stealing several steel rods
from a construction site on US
301 was arrested on a grand
theft charge Sunday afternoon,
according to a deputy's report.
About 4:15 p.m., a deputy
on patrol saw a man, later iden-
tified as John Patrick Moore of
Jacksonville, removing a steel
rod from a barricade. Moore,
36, told deputies he had got-
ten permission from the barri-
cade's owner to take the rods,
but he could not provide a
name or number for the man,
the report said. Once advised
of his rights, Moore declined to
speak with police.
Deputies found 27 addi-
tional rods, valued at about
$900, in the bed of Moore's
Ford pickup. An employee of
Anderson Columbia Construc-
tion, the company that owns
the barricades and steel, told
deputies nobody had permis-
sion to remove any items from
Anderson work sites, the
report said ..
Moore is charged with
grand theft.' '
Cocaine arrest
A homeless man found
sleeping behind a Hilliard gas
station was arrested on drug

Witnesses told deputies that
a suspicious person, later iden-

Nelson, had been sleeping
behind the Kangaroo Express
station located at 551726 US 1.
Confronted by deputies about
12:30 a.m., Nelson said he was
homeless and did not have a
Place to sleep, the report said.
During a pat-dbwn, deputies
found a glass pipe, typically
used to smoke crack cocaine,
in Nelson's left front pocket.
Nelson allegedly told deputies
he had smoked cocaine out of
the pipe, which tested posi-
tively for the substance at the
scene, the report said.
Nelson, whose last resi-
dence is listed at 37138 West
Third St., Hilliard, is charged
with possession of cocaine, pos-
session of drug paraphernalia
and disorderly intoxication.

Road residence Thursday
night, according to a deputy's
report.

85235 Haddock Road. During
the raid, deputies found nearly
900 grams of marijuana pack-
aged for sale, nearly $2,400 in
cash, multiple digital scales
used to weigh marijuana before
sale and several assorted nar-
cotic pills, the report said.

A Callahan man accused of
stealing more than $1,600 from
his grandmother's bank
account between October and
December was arrested on
felony charges Jan. 8, accord-
ing to a deputy's report.
The 81-year-old victim told
deputies her grandson, who
lives at her Meadows Lane res-
idence' with her, had been
using her debit card' without
her permission since Oct. 20,
when money initially went
missing. Her bank records
showed that $1,620 had been
removed in 20 separate trans-
actions since that date, the
report said.
Kenneth Randall Smith
allegedly told deputies he had
been using the card without
his grandmother's consent,
swiping it from her purse occa-
sionally. Smith, 26, said he had
used the card without his
grandmother's permission
about 20 times to the tune of
$500, the report said.
During a pat-down, deputies
also found a syringe, which
tested positive for cocaine
residue, in Smith's pocket.
Smith, of 33457 Meadows
Lane, Callahan, is charged with
exploitation of the elderly,
fraudulent use of a credit card

GARRIE'IT PI:IICAN
News Le.ader
AJacksonville man suspect-
ed in the home invasion of a
Callahan residence Jan. 5 was
arrested Jan. 9, according to a
Nassau County Sheriffs report.
Darrell Wayne Hawk, 55,
has been charged with armed
robbery, armed burglary and
grand theft in connection with
the burglary of a Marsh Road
home. He remains in Nassau
County Jail on a $160,000 bond.
According to the victim, a
man in his 40s came to the door
and asked if he was Mike.
When the victim said no, the
man asked if he knew Mike.
When the victim again said no,
the man pushed the door open,
grabbed him by the arm, turned
him around and put him in a
bear hug, he told police.
According to the incident
report, the homeowner was
walked down the hall and into a
bedroom, where he saw a sec-
ond suspect. The first man sat
him in his walker, the report

through the home, including
the master bedroom dresser
and closet as well as a storage
shed next to the home. The
invasion lasted about 10 to 15
minutes.
The pair took four televi-
sions, two handguns, a box of
assorted ammunition, a Play-
Station 3 videogame console
still in its box, an Apple iPad,
two vacuum cleaners, the vic-
tim's wallet and an air com-
pressor before fleeing the resi-
dence in a white pickup truck.

Pontoon: A true family fishing boat


be made by family
fishermen when
purchasing a fish-
ing boat is the type of boat
that will best accommodate
the entire family's fishing
needs. While most hardcore
fishermen
will tend to
select a fish-
ing boat that
is built strict-
ly for fishing,
the rest of
the family
Smay wish to
have a more
OUTDOORS roomy fish-
... ing boat out-
fitted with
Teriryacoss comfortable
seating and even a table for
eating out on the water while
fishing.
Through the years, fishing
boat manufacturers have met
these family needs while de-
signing and redesigning the
pontoon fishing boat. Today's
pontoon boats are now
designed for both the serious
angler and family fishing.
"Pontoon fishing boats
have been gaining in popular-
ity during the last few fishing.
seasons," said Jack Coker of
Chelsea Marine. "We are now
carrying the Aloha brand
pontoon boats, which are
really unique over other pon-
toon boats because they
employ three pontoons.
"The pontoons also have
lifting strakes, which afford
for more stability, better fuel
economy and more boat
speed. In the past pontoon
boat owners have complained
about the slow speed of their
pontoon boat. Aloha pontoon
boats have solved this prob-
lem with their new triple-pon-
toon, family- and fisherman-
designed pontoon boat.
"Typically pontoon boats
will run from 10-15 miles per
hour. Our Aloha pontoon
boats will run from 30-40
miles per hour and can be
outfitted with up to 300 hp
outboards as well. Boat speed
has always been a problem
with pontoon boat owners
and also selling a pontoon. ,, ,
boat. Getting to and from
your targeted fishing waters
in a timely manner leaves
more time for fishing and
family fun.
"Also unique about a fami-
ly pontoon fishing boat, you
can drive the boat right up on
the beach without worrying
about damaging a fiberglass
bottom. Pontoon boats are
constructed of .100 gauge alu-
minum that will not damage;
whereas fiberglass boat hulls
will scratch and even crack."
A major controversy
between the family fisherman
and the wife is the type of
fishing boat that will totally
satisfy their family fishing
needs. Keep in mind there
are some women who simply

do not enjoy fishing.
However, women do enjoy
doing things that their family
enjoys, including beaching a
boat on a pristine beach,
where family members can
enjoy a secluded picnic, swim-
ming and just laying out in
the sun. Convincing your wife
and family that pontoon fish-
ing boats are an excellent
choice while driving a boat
right up on a secluded beach
may well be the first step in
securing your family pontoon
fishing boat.

also outfitted with either a
hard top or with a canvas
bimini top that protects your
family from both the sun and
passing rainstorms.
Personally I like the spacious
decks, where a table for eat-
ing, reading or playing games
can be enjoyed. Pontoon fish-
ing boats also offer multiple
seating options from serious
swivel bass seats located at
the bow to comfortable bench
seats located at mid ship and
at the stern.
Pontoon fishing boats can
also be outfitted with an elec-


tric motor at the bow for navi-
gating quietly close to both
fresh and saltwater fish habi-
tats. Live bait wells are also
an option; live bait or live fish
can be kept alive as well.
But a major deterrent in
the past for families has been
the lack of a bathroom on a
pontoon boat. Pontoon boats
now come with a unique
portable "potty" that has a
complete fold-up canvas priva-
cy current.
Eric Oliver at Ocean Out-
board Marine also rents pon-
toon boats for both family


fishing and sightseeing fun. I
would strongly recommend
renting a pontoon boat before
you make a purchase. In
many cases taking your fami-
ly out on a pontoon boat will
certainly give you the oppor-
tunity to sell your wife and
family members on possibly
purchasing a family pontoon
fishing boat.
Bob and Mary Lou Tomp-
kins have enjoyed their family
fishing pontoon boat from
their home on Piney Island.
"We have had so much fun
on the water with our pontoon


boat," Bob Tompkins said.
"Mary Lou and our son Ryan
have taken so many family
trips from our dock to both
the north and south ends of
Amelia Island.
"The one thing that we
really like in the ride is pass-
ing boat wakes that normally
slam into a typical deep-V hull
boat don't even rock our wide
beam pontoon boat."

toon boat rentals call Ocean

", ''When it's breezy swing easy." How many golfers have heard this old saying when
Sit's windy outside? Lefs get into just a little bit more detail about this. What will
"' swinging easy do for you when the wind is up? For one thing, it increases the
chances of solid contact creating a more penetrating ball flight. For another thing,
S it compresses the ball less causing it to spin less, which also creates a more pen-
: etrating ball flight. Notice the theme. A solidly struck ball With a more penetrating
trajectory is less affected by the wind. Swinging harder when the wind is blowing is a powerful
instinct to overcome. E.ut I' ,.-'u can discipline yourself to use more club and swing easier it will
have a wonderful effect on your ability to control the ball in the wind.

Friends donate $25,400 to Fernandina branch


F'or the News Leader

Lots of hard work and the
enduring love of good books
enabled the Friends of the
Fernandina Beach Library to
raise $25,400 to support need-
ed programs and equipment at
the Fernandina library this
year.
Bill Flynn, FOL president,
presented a check for $23,500
to Dawn Bostwick, Nassau
County Library director, on Jan.
11. An additional $1,900 will
fund the Learn-A-Test database
when it becomes available this
spring.
This is among the largest
gifts the Friends organization
has made in its 28-year history,
he said. Funds were raised pri-
marily through two very suc-
cessful book sales and dona-
tions to FOL from The Rayo-
nier Foundation, Plantation
Ladies Association, the Fernan-
dina Beach Kiwanis Club, an
anonymous foundation and
member dues and contribu-
tions.
"The Friends of the
Library's regular support is
incredibly important to our
library, especially since state
funding for libraries has been
substantially reduced in recent
years," says Bostwick. "This
very generous donation will
make wireless Internet access
available to all residents, and
pay for print and electronic sub-
S scriptions to newspapers, mag-
azines, business journals and
assorted library materials
including books, e-books,
books on CD and DVDs."
It will also help fund pro-
grams for adults, teens and chil-
dren including the summer

History Month activities.
$2,500 will match a Florida
Humanities Council grant that
will bring one year of adult pro-
gramming to celebrate 500
years of recorded history in
Florida and the state's cultural
connection to Spain.
The Fernandina Library is
the busiest in the county,
Bostwick says. Recent statis-
tics show 300 to 400 people visit
the library daily. In 2012, they
borrowed over 166,000 books,
CDs, DVDs and audio tapes
and clocked hundreds of hours
a month on 18 public comput-
ers. Patrons also spent count-
less hours on special comput-
ers reserved for test taking,
financial aid, college and job
applications, and access to e-
government materials.
The library also issued


1,481 new library cards and
processed 556 passport appli-
cations last year. Twelve vol-
unteers helped over 400 peo-
ple file their tax returns.
With close to 300 members
the FOL is more productive
than ever, Flynn says. "Their
dedication and commitment
clearly shows how much our
library is valued in this com-
munity."
In addition to raising funds,
this year the Fernandina Beach
FOL organized and helped with
66 programs attended by 3,300
children and 16 programs en-
joyed by over 350 adults. FOL
volunteers also help with stock-
ing shelves, greeting visitors,
calling folks who have reserved
books and other tasks.
In the past year, the FB FOL
has also worked diligently with
city and county commissions


to develop a plan for expanding
and iri....i i ir library build-
ing. FOL committed to raising
$1.2 million from private phi-
lanthropy to match the city and
county's commitments of
$600,000 each toward the proj-
ect. The capital campaign is

Hi! My name is
Strawberry I am a 7-year-old
Basset Hound mix female. I
have a beautiful reddish tan
coat with gorgeous amber
eyes. I weigh 37 pounds but I
shouldn't get any bigger. I
came to be at the shelter
because my family was mov-
ing and couldn't take me with
them. So I am looking for a
new home. I am a very sweet,
low-key lady. I don't like to
mess up my kennel and I just
want someone who needs
someone else to love them
back. I am great with kids but
not cats. Hey, not everyone
likes them. The only draw-
back is that I am heartworm
positive, but the shelter offers
financial assistance when I am
adopted. I am already spayed
so the adoption fee will
include a one-year rabies vac-
cine, a microchip and the


Peggy is just one of the
many adults Cats Angels is
helping to find a "forever"
home for this year. Peggy is a
gray and cream color tabby
girl. She is not fond of other
cats and was not having a
happy life at our Adoption
Center. Peggy is now'living in
a foster home and anxiously
waiting for her new family.
Peggy loves people and
enjoys being a lap cat. She's a
talker too and will respond to
you with meows and chirpy
sounds. Please consider open-

Azul is a big guy with a big
heart and a big personality!
He's a very friendly fellow, an
Alaskan Malamute-German
Shepherd mix. He's accus-
tomed to living with a family
with children, and they loved
him very much, but they had
to move and couldn't take him
along. He's housetrained and
knows commands, such as sit,
.and he walks well on his
leash. He's very intelligent
and alert, and we think he'd
make a great family dog. He
respects his own size and so
he dlbesn't jump up on people.
He is about 4 years old and
has a beautiful coat and gor-
geous, ice-blue eyes. He is
dominant with other dogs but
not aggressive. He loves to
give kisses and cuddle, and
enjoys going for walks and to
the beach. He spent a lot of
time outside so it would be
great if he had a yard, but he
also spent a lot of time inside
and was well housetrained
inside. His owners left biogra-
phical information and pic-
tures, so you can get the full
rundown on this great guy!
Scarlet is one of the sweet-
est cats ever! You'd almost
think she was a puppy dog,
the way she loves to greet you
and give you kisses. She also

The Fernandina Beach Rotary
Club recently welcomed its
own Past President Kim
Harding, who talked about
healthy investment practices.
Harding, a former bank execu-
tive who is now a financial
advisor with Edward Jones,
outlined the six key compo-
nents of healthy investing: set-
ting realistic goals; holding no
one investment in excess;
focusing on long-term goals;
preparing for the unexpected
by diversifying investments;
being patient, and scheduling
regular reviews of your plan.
She also discussed future
market concerns such as
changes in FDIC insurance
regulations and possible legis-
lation that will impact Social
Security in 2013. She said the
best financial advice is to keep
your emotions out of your
investment strategy and meet
with your financial advisor at
least once a year to review
your portfolio.
