Friends remember Smiley Lee's


abiding love ofcommunity
GARRETT PELICAN -----
News-Leader. .


If you believe the stories, he once brought an alligator
to a bar and he even dumped a truckload of chicken manure
on the front doorstep of the News-Leader.
But friends say there's much more to former Fernandina
Beach mayor, commissioner and self-made man Joseph
"Smiley" Lee, Sr. than his storied feats suggest. To friends,
Lee is more notable for his cunning and candor, and perhaps
best remembered for his generosity.
Tales of the Nassau County native's exploits were in
full swing Tuesday morning as friends mourned Lee's
death Monday evening'at the age of 77 at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau.
"Somebody might have called him a redneck r:enais-
sance man, because he was so actively involved in so many
things," said Clyde Davis, Lee's attorney and friend, citing
Lee's involvement in the shrimp business, real estate, agri-
culture, construction and salvage work. "He was proof that
you could not judge a book by his cover because he was one
of the smartest, kindest, most community-oriented people
that you could ever run into."


i] e KnewI of someboruuy nteeting some-
thing, he would do that behind-the-scenes.
He would do it and keep on going with no
thanks. He didn't want the thanks.'
FORMER CITY COMMISSIONER LARRY BOATRIGHT

Beyond his generosity and kindness, said friend Jack
Heard of Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors, "what I admired
most about Smiley was that he was a self-made entrepreneur.
He worked hard. He truly made it on his own."
As a city commissioner, Lee's been described as "blunt,"
"direct" and "straightforward." His friend, former com-
missioner Larry Boatright, recalled how forthcoming and
committed Lee was in public service.
"As a city commissioner, you were never uncertain
where Smiley stood on any issue," Boatright said. "He was
really forthcoming on his stance on the city issues, and some

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
A tree removal project at the
Fei-nandina Beach Municipal Airport
has residents in sirroundjng com-
munities concerned about the devas-
tation of a forested area within the
airport grounds that serves as a
buffer for homeowners and attracts
numerous wildlife species,
But Andrew Holesko of airport
(o.ns.ultinls Pai-el, A'.-.ciait, said at
a meeting Monday between the
Airport Advisory Commission and
citycommissioners that everything is
being done to save as many trees as
possible. Passero Associates is man-
aging the tree removal project.
Homeowner Pat Foster-Turley
asked in an email to City Managei
Joe Gerrity on Monday that he halt
the tree removal until those con-
cerned residents can meet city rep-
resentatives at the site. Turley, a zool-
ogist who writes a nature column for
the News-Leader, has a house in the
Simmons Cove neighborhood. '
Gerrity replied in an e-mail to
Foster-Turley that "there has not been
one single tree taken down that was
not identified on the plans that were
displayed at the two.public meetings
that were held and at the walk-
through that we conducted at the air-
port."
Eugene Alley of the Egans Bluff
Homeowners Association also wrote
an email to city commissioners on
Feb. 11 expressing his concerns
about the execution of the tree plan.
"There are indications, to date,
trees beyond those authorized for

removal or trimming have been
removed," Alley wrote.
Holesko said at Monday's meet-
ing only the tallest trees near runway
approaches were targeted for removal
by BCGO Inc. Civil & General
Contractors of Jacksonville, and pos-
sibly some slightly shorter trees adja-
cent to the tallest ones. He added that
the height of trees targeted for
removal depends on which of the air-
port's runways they are closest to.
Holesko also roted the current
phase of the project involves the use


of large trucks and specialty equip-
ment, and that tree removal at the
intersection of Amelia Island Parkway
and South 14th Street would be
"extensive."
The contractors, Holesko said,
were creating a path the width of one
vehicle to transport large trees out
of the area.
"We are monitoring (the contrac-
tors) on a daily basis," Holesko said.
"We'll do the minimum (damage) we
can with the greatest care."
The accumulation of pine needles


and dried branches can be a fire haz-
arld, Holesko said, and the plan also
involves removal of those materials._
"Now is the dirtyworkto get to the
end," Holesko said. He added that
when the project is done, there vill be
new plantings, fencing, berms and
walking trails for residents.
"If it all is mowed down and we
are waiting for new small trees to be
planted we will not see a forest back
there in our lifetime," Foster-Turley

Barnabas awarded $100,000 challenge grant


Continuing with their philanthropic
goal of addressing critical community
issues, J. Wayne and Delores Barr
Weaver announced Monday a pledge
of a $100,000 challenge grant to
Bai-nabas Center.
The gift will be made through the
Weaver Family Foundation find man-
aged by The Community Foundation
in Jacksonville and will support
Barnabas Center's "Building More
Room For Compassion" campaign.
The Weaver Challenge Grant funds
will match, dollar for dollar, all dona-
tions made to the campaign in 2013
from $1 to $5,000 toward this $100,000
grant.


Wayne and Delores Weaver share
a common value with Barnabas
Center's board and staff members that
every gift makes a difference, regard-
less of the amount of the gift, the
announcement stated. "Wayhe and I
are honored to support the great work
of Barnabas Center and invite every-
one to join us. Our challenge grant
will allow each of us to leverage our
dollars no matter the size of the gift,"
said Delores Barr Weaver. "I was
never told that whatever I could give
would help make a difference, so that
is the real message I wish to send."
Recently, the Barnabas Center
Board of Directors announced their
I


acquisition and renovation plans for a
building that will allow for consolida-
tion of its multiple service programs in
one location; and expansion to meet
the growing needs of the community.
This newly acquired building, locat-
ed on Jasmine Street in Fernandina
Beach, will allow the nonprofit agency
to expand its crisis assistance pro-
gram and food pantry, as well as its
health care programs that will serve as
a "medical home" for residents in need
of primary medical, dental and behav-
ioral health care services. Renovation
of the building is expected to be com-
pleted by late summer.
At a recent public announcement of


the building campaign, Wanda Lanier,
executive director of Barnabas Center,
stated, "I am delighted to share the
good news that the first phase of our
building campaign has brought the
agency to the halfway mark toward
our goal of raising $1 million; yet, we
have a long way to go." In addition to
the $1 million goal for the building, the
agency has a goal of raising $250,000
toward a capital reserve fund to help
with future building maintenance and
repair costs.
Since 1986, Barnabas Center-has
been the safety net provider connect-

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Stella Johnson was explaining the
importance of supervised visits and
child custody exchanges to a reporter
recently wh:-n a Google Alert scrolled
acqrss her computer screen: "Shots
fired during child custody exchange in
Landisville "
Johnson, executive director for the
Family Nurturing Center of Florida
(FNC), has grown accustomed to see-
ing headlines like the one above. But
they've only emboldened her resolve
to prevent tragedies like the shooting
in Landsville, Pa. from happening
here.
"I don't want to say it's never going
to happen in Northeast Florida, but I
will say, I don't see these stories here
and I hope it's because parents have
other options. The ones that we see
Stories about, they tend to live in com-
munities where services like Family
Nurturing Center's aren't available,"
said Johnson.
FNC, founded in 1993 as the state's
first visitation center, offers a super-
vised haven for court-ordered visita-
tion and child custody exchanges. The
agency's mission, Johnson says, is to
provide a "nurturing environment"
for families dealing.with divorce, cus-
tody battles, domestic violence, sub-
stance abuse and mental health issues
by giving children and parents a safe
place to build relationships during try-
ing times.
"We're helping keep that focus on
your kids," she said. "When you come
in, you're ready to participate and
you've planned this time. You're going
to sit down and have a meal, or play a
game, with your kids. Your children
need you and you need to demon-
strate that commitment to them, and
this is a way to do that."
In 2010, the organization opened a
satellite campus in Yulee, located at
86029 Pages Dairy Road. The center
is supported entirely by private
fundraising, fees tied to the family's
income level and forfeiture funds from
the Nassau County Sheriff's Office.
"A couple years ago, the commu-
n'ity members got together and said
we need a nurturing center in Nassau
County," said Johnson, adding,
"There's no burden on taxpayers."

College in Marietta, OH where
he played Varsity Basketball and
graduated Summa Cum Laude
with a Bachelor of Science
degree in Organic Chemistry
While a student at Marietta, he
was a member of Phi Beta
Kappa Fraternity Following col-
lege, he accepted employment
in the Technical Sales
Department of Union Caribide in
Iong Island, New York. The
U.S. Army called the young Mr.
Schmidt into service in 1954
and he was assigned to Munich,
Germany until his honorable
discharge in 1956. Upon return-
ing home to Long Island, he
rejoined Union Carbide and
began making his mark with a
long and successful career in
the field of Chemical and
Plastics Sales. Shortly after
returning to New York, he met
Eileen Farley from West
Orange, New Jersey, who would
become his wife in 1958. The
newlyweds started their family
in Grand Rapids, Michigan
where his children Leslie and
Tom were born and Michael
and Kathy joined the family a
few years later in Bloomfield
Hills, Michigan. In 1969, the
family moved out East and
Chuck pursued his Executive
Career with Carbide at 270 Park
Avenue in New York City. He
would eventually bring the fam-
ily back to the Detroit area
where the family maintains
strong ties.
Mr. Schmidt's wife Eileen
passed away in 1990 and Chuck
continued to lead Carbide's
Automotive Division. In April of
1993, he met his current wife,

In 1996, he retired from his
daily commitments with Union
Carbide remaining as a
Consultant and Mentor until
2001.
Chuck had always visited
Florida and discovered Amelia
Island in the mid-1970's when
the Amelia Island Plantation was
in its infancy. He fell in love with
the Island and returned every
year. Throughout the years, Mr.
Schmidt invested in and sup-
ported Amelia, and Ellen and
Chuck realized their dream of
ocean living at Piper Dunes.
Eventually they made the Island
their permanent home. In 2012,
they left the seashore and
moved into Amelia Park with
'their little dog' Baxteir,'.' "'
Mr. Schmidt and Is. farnlily
always loved outdoor activities
which for about 30 years always
revolved around golf. This even-
tually transitioned to the Atlantic
Ocean and the beach, where all
generations could be found
spending long hours surf fish-
ing, walking and swimming.
Time with his grandchildren
and especially the youngest
ones was a dear and precious
time which produced many
memories.

SMILEY
Continued from 1A
people probably read that as
being obstinate, but he truly
loved the city. For somebody to
step forward to run for city
commission it takes commit-
ment and he had that."
A colleague and three-time
adversary of Lee's, former
commissioner Ron Sapp
shared that sentiment. "Smiley
was very straightforward; you
always knew exactly where
Smiley stood on every single
issue," Sapp said.
Davis agreed. "There was
no mistake about what Mr. Lee
was thinking. He did not beat
around the bush and he had
very little patience for those
who did," Davis said.
But outside the commission
chambers, friends say, Lee was
a different man: a "doer" who
had no use for thanks, but
wanted nonetheless to help
those around him. One'time,
Boatright says, when Lee was
a commissioner, he hopped in
a bulldozer and started
piling up sand to.protect the
island's roads from the surf
during a particularly nasty
Nor'easter.
"He was a giver, who did a
lot of things that people didn't
know about it," said Boatright.
"If he knew of somebody need-
ing something, he would do
that behind-the-scenes. He
would do it and keep on going
with no thanks. He didn't want
the thanks."
Lee also made headlines
here for donating a 30-acre
property to the city of
Fernandina Beach, a tract now'
part of Egans Creek Greenway.
"He donated a lot of land to the
Egans Creek Greenway, to the
city, and was very zealous
about having that land pre-
served for future generations
to enjoy," Davis said.

project, killing a grove of red
maple trees there, Lee made
headlines again when he led
the charge against the city for
failing to prevent the mistake.
"He was really frustrated
that it happened and that Ihere
was not immediate action to
prevent the saltwater intrusion,
which wound up killing all the
maple trees," said Davis.
Perhaps the most famous
talc about Smiley was the time
he got so upset with an editor's
apparently lopsided coverage
of him in the News-Leader that
he dumped a "huge" load of
chicken manure on the paper's
front doorstep.
He called his friend, attor-
ney Mike Mullin, that morn-
ing and related that he was
never good at expressing him-
self on paper, so he had done
the next best thing, Mullin said.
Mullin, who hadn't seen the
display, strolled over to have a
look, on Lee's advice.
"It was a dumpp truck full of
chicken s_ t," Mullin man-
aged to say between belly
laughs. "It was huge. When the
written word fails you, go talk
to Smiley Lee."
There was also the time, on
a $100 bet that he couldn't
wrestle an alligator, that Lee
swaggered into the Brass Rail
Lounge on Second Street, now
Pablo's, with an alligator in tow,
friends recall. Mullin says a
patron was telling him, "'Your
friend's going to lose his $100
and you're going to lose yours.'
And about that time. I heard
people screaming and here
comes Smiley with an alligator,
on theend of a four-foot rope,"
said Mullin.
"He tied it up to the bar and
came in and sat down with us.
So the bar manager threw
Smiley and the alligator out,"
said Mike Hankins, advertis-
ing director for the News-
.Leader and a friend of Lee's,
adding that the gator wound
up biting Lee's foot when he
let it off the "leash." "He did

crazy stuff like that all the
time."
Those who knew Lee well
contend that it's the tales you
don't hear about the man
dubbed "Smiley" that say the
most about him and the kind of
person he was.
One anecdote, Sapp says,
is telling of Sniley's character,
of the lengths lie would go in
order to help his friends. In his
case, that meant Smiley trying
to sell then University of
Georgia men's basketball
coach Bob Stover on the mer-
its of Sapp, a high school bas-
ketball player.
"I'd always wanted to go
there on a scholarship. Smiley
was working with the coach to
help make that happen. And
even back then, I thought that
was a really nice thing to do. If
you were his friend, he would
do anything for you.
Conversely, if you were not his
friend, he wouldn't treat badly,"
Sapp said.
Hankins says Lee's kind-
ness didn't extend only to
friends of the man. "He had a
huge heart," he says.
.Hankins recalled that dur-
ing one holiday season, Lee
approached Hankins and the
News-Leader's publisher aitd
asked them how much it would
cost to give Christmas dinner
and presents to all nursing
home residents on the island.
He wanted to give them each a
dinner and present, but he
wanted the gift to be anony-
mous, Hankins says.
"So he reached in his pock-
et, he pulled out $2,000 and
said,'Here, go buy them some
presents.' He was crazy, but he
had a huge heart."
Lee, a forestry graduate
from the University of Georgia,
spent his entire life in Nassau
County, since his parents set-
tled here in 1924. He leaves
behind a daughter, a son and a
community.

Johnson says the center
offers family education for par-

protect children from the
inflamed emotions that stem
from custody battles and super-

relationships between parents
and children.
Supervised visits range from
one hour to one hour and a half,
she says.
"The primary purLose is to
give children a way to have safe,
healthy contact with their non-
residential parent after there
has been some sort of crisis sit-

$275,000. Several hundred trees
at the city airport were target-

according to Holesko, who also
said only trees presenting
obstacles to takeoff and landing
would be affected.
Removal of trees on and

Meanwhile, custody

maintain relationships with
both parents during a family

said.

during a supervised exchange
program akin to FNC's, the

drop in calls, she says, saving
police resources and taxpayer
dollars.
'To some extent, this is pre-

is prevention in terms of how
it's relevant to all community

Family education provided
at FNC helps parents realize
the toll their behaviors place
on their children, says Johnson.
"Parents who connect the
impact of their behaviors to the
impact on their children are
more likely to successfully com-

Hope and
Sonetilimes, students and
their families have to be edu-
catedl about higher education.
There is enough confusion
over liiancial caid, such as grants
and scholarships. Enough con-
cern over mounting costs. And
enough anguish over going into
debt for the sake of a college
education.
However, there are libraries
of resources to help alleviate
the confusion, concern and
anguish. There are counselors
and websiles and programs like
the one going on this Sunday,
Feb. 24 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the
Florida State College Nassau
Center campus in Yulee.
Fittingly named, "College
Goal Sunday," the statewide
event will involve informative
sessions and assistance with fill-
ing out federal financial-aid
forms. These storms, known by
the acronym FAFSA, can lbe
complicated but help is here
and near.
As an incentive for local high
school seniors and their parents
to attend the event, there will
be drawings for $20,000 in
scholarships to local colleges.
The scholarships will range
fiom $500 to $5,000 in value and
are from the University of North
Florida, Jacksonville University,
Edward Waters College and
Florida State College. And there
will also be a $500 College Goal
Sunday scholarship for any
Florida college.
You must be a high school
senior and have completed the
FAFSA to qualify for one of the
scholarships. (And, of course,
you must be attending the

that will be available. (The name
"FAFSA" stands for the Free
Application for Federal Student
Aid.)
For most levels of financial
assistance, these forms must be
completed. This applies to stu-
dents receiving Florida "Bright
Futures" scholarships, even
though those are administered
at the state.level.
Some students may be eligi-
ble for federalaid such as Pell
grants, loans or work-study
assistance. These federal funds
are often the most misunder-
stood. The FAFSA helps deter-
mine eligibility.
Students and their families
are encouraged to attend even
if they haven't completed their
2012 tax return. There are sev-

Burgess Blvd. in Yulee and can

It's indeed worth the effort.
Plenty of evidence exists about
the value of a college education.
For instance, a college grad-
uate earns about $1 million
more in his or her lifetime than
someone wifh only a high
school diploma. And the college
grad is less likely to become
unemployed.
However, a 130 percent
increase in tuition and fees at
public universities over the last
20 years has cast doubt about
the worth and financial risk of
going to college. All the while,
incomes in general have hardly
risen.
Middle-income families are
getting the rawest deal. They
can hardly qualify for as much
financial aid as lower-income
families, while they don't have
the financial capabilities of the
wealthy.
Facing that disparity, fami-
lies are taking on higher levels
of debt or choosing two-year
degrees instead bf the tradi-
tional four-year model. All this to
afford some kind of a college
education for their children.
But there is help. And hope.
One of the solutions is a con-
venient event like College Goal
Sunday.

Social


Security


set to go


paperless
STIEPI IANIE CARROLL
CARSON
Florida News Connection

TALLAHASSEE The
March 1 deadline is approach-
ing for anyone who receives
Social Security, SSI payments,
or veterans' benefits by mail.
To save money, the federal
government wants to make all
its payments electronically.
That means a direct deposit
into a bank account, or onto a
debit card.
If there's a senior in your
life, it's a good time to ask
whether that person has let
Social Security know how they
want to receive their benefits,
or to offer to help them with
the transition.
And Cristina Martin
Firvida with AARP said that,
while it's important to get it
done, don't worry too much
about the deadline.
"If they have not made the
switch by March 1, they
should not worry. They will
continue to receive their ben-
efit," she said.
About 5 million people still
receive paper checks for these
federal programs, and Florida
is one of the states with the
highest number of people
receiving them.
With a debit card, Martin
Firvida said, there are a few
important questions to ask.
Find out about the fees for
using the card; whether
there's a good network of
ATMs so you can get cash
when you 'need it; and
whether a debit card is prac-
tical for paying bills. All banks
and credit unions offer debit
cards, and now, she said, the
U.S. Treasury has a card, too,
just for this purpose.
"You will get one debit
card, and it will be reloaded
each month," she said. "If you
go with the Treasury debit
card, they have set up a call
center so that you have a way
of calling and checking on the
balance of your card."
And AARP is warning peo-
ple that, with any change
involving transfers of money,
there are always scams that
crop up. Martin Firvida said if
that you are called or mailed
with reminders about the
deadline or asked for person-
al information, hang up or
press "delete."
"Don't give that out," she
cautioned. "No one from SSA
is going to ask you for that
kind of information by phone
or by e-mail "
Martin Firvida, director of
financial security for AARP's
Government Affairs Division,
said a bank or credit union
can help arrange for direct
deposit or a debit card
account into which benefits
can be paid. It can be done
online, at GoDirect.org, or by
calling the Treasury Depart-
ment at 800-333-1795 or at
AARPorg.

Tips to help


sell yourhome

JASON ALDERMAN


For the News-Leader
Now that the housing mar-
ket has finally begun to stabilize
and interest rates remain at his-
torically low levels, more and
more homebuyers and sellers
are dipping their toes back in
the water.
If you're planning to sell
your home, you need to under-
stand the tax implication's of
selling a home as well as be
aware of structural and cos-
metic flaws in your home and
neighborhood that could
undermine your asking price
or keep the property languish-
ing on the market for months.
First, the tax tips:.
In general, if you make
money on the sale, you can
exclude the gain from your tax-
able income (as outlined
below) if you've owned and
used the home as your resi-
dence for two out of the past
five years.
You may be able to exclude
up to $250,000 of the gain from
your income ($500,000 on most
joint returns).
If you can exclude all of the
gain, you don't need to report
the sale on your tax return.
Gains that cannot be excluded
are taxable. You must report
them on Form 1040, Schedule
D. You cannot deduct a loss
from the sale of your main
home.
For more information, see
IRS Publication 523, Selling
Your Home (at www.irs.gov).
Many factors can negative-
ly impact your being able to
attract buyers and ultimately'
get the price you want.
Sometimes there's not much
you can do:
Ifyou're located on a busy
street or the school district is
sub-par, you probably won't
\fetch as much as for the same
house in a better neighbor-
hood.
'If your house is the only
contemporary model in a sea of
colonials or if your remodeled

that on, even with.a significant
reduction in price..
However, there are many
relatively minor changes that
may boost your home's niar-
ketability. For example:
If your interior or exterior
walls are painted with bold col-
ors or textures, it might be
worth toning it down.
If you can afford it, have
your home professionally
staged, since they know how to
maximize space and show off a
home's. strong points (while
hiding its defects).
Mismatched appliances,
cabinetry and plumbing fix-
tures stand out like sore
thumbs. The same goes for
worn floors or carpeting.
Discuss with your realtor which
improvements might be worth
the investment.'
Make sure youryard is well-
tended and has at least basic
landscaping. Overgrown weeds
and abandoned junk don't help
your curb appeal. The same
principle applies for common
areas if you live in a condo-
minium.
If there ire foreclosed
homes in the neighborhood,
chances are they aren't being
well maintained. Make contacts
with the lenders taking over
these properties so you can
report problems. If they're
unresponsive, ask your city's
building department whether
they charge fines or penalties.
Also, work with your neigh-
bors to keep an eye on empty
homes. Take turns mowing the
lawn, picking- up trash and
removing graffiti. Anything you
can do to bring up the quality of
the neighborhood will improve
your.chance of selling.

OPINION


Pedophilia's the problem


'Ihe bosses of the Boy Scouts of America
surprised everyone this month by postponing
their decision on whether to allow gay leaders
and gay Scouts to join their ranks.
If the-BSA's long-standing ban on gays is
lifted by national officials in May, the choice to
admit gays may be left to local Boy Scout chap-
ters as it should be.
Churches and civit groups that sponsor
Boy Scout troops wouldn't be forced by the
national organization to admit gays. And par-
ents can choose whether they want their child
to be in a troop led by a gay man.
If you're asking me if I'd
put mychild in a Boy Scout
Stoop with a leader who is a
Known homosexual, I would
answer on the side of caution
and say "No."
But despite what soIre of
my conservative friends
think, allowing gays in the
Boy Scouts will not be an
MIAKING open invitation to pedophiles
SENSE to begin preying on children.
Being gay doesn't mean
you are a pedophile.
Michael Homosexuality and pedophil-
Reagan ia are two completely diffe(-
ent issues and studies show
that a child is no more at risk of being molest-
ed by a gay or bisexual man than a heterosex-
ual one.
As someone who was sexually molested by
a camp counselor when I was eight, I know
more than I care to about pedophiliaand the
long-lasting harm it does to children. You can
read about my experience and what I learned
from it in 7Twice Adopted, my 2004 book.
Pedophilia is the most heinous crime
against children. But as the newspaper head-
lines have been telling us for a long time,
some of our most famous institutions have a
shameful record of coddling the child moles-
ters who work for them.
Everyone knows by now how the men
in power at Penn State chose not to tell the
police about the serial pedophilia of former
football coach Jerry Sandusky because they
were afraid to sully the reputation of their
"sacred" athletic program. Meanwhile, for
years Sandusky was free to prey on new vic-
tims.
Penn State's decision to protect its institu-
tional reputation was nothing new. According/
to HBO's scathing new documentary "Mea
Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa," the Catholic
Church my church has implemented a sim-
ilar policy whenever pedophiles are discov-
ered in its sanctuaries and schools.
From Wisconsin to Ireland to the Vatican,
HBO showed that the church's bishops and
cardinals have a long and disgusting history of
protecting pedophile priests, ignoring chil-

ual man than a heterosexual one.

dren's allegations of sexual abuse, paying the
parents of victims to keep quiet and keeping
the sex crimes of priests secret from law
enforcement.
In my hometown, we've recently been
learning from the Los Angeles Times how for
decades the hierarchy of t he IoAs Angeles dio-
cese "plotted to keep law enforcement from
learning that children had been molested at
the hands of priests."
The BSA's similar method of dealing with
child molesters in its ranks also has been
exposed by the L.A. Times.
The BSA's own files revealed that between
1970 and 1991 officials chose not to tell police
about hundreds of alleged sexual abuses, and
in some cases allowed the molesters to contin-
ue working or volunteering with the organiza-
tion.
In one case, the Times reported last fall, a
camp director who heard about repeated
abuse by a staff member told police he didn't
report them because "his bosses wanted to
protect the reputation of the Scotts and the
accused staff member."
The men who run the Boy Scouts have
something in common with the men who run
the Catholic Church and Penn State. When it
comes to dealing with the sexual abuse of chil-
dren, they've always chosen to protect their
own institutions instead of protecting children.
Pedophilia can be prevented and guarded
against, but it's impossible to eliminate. But
from now on, when it is discovered, the perpe-
trators who on average molest about 120 vic-
tims during their "career" should be indict-
ed and punished as criminals.
This should be the case no matter who they
are, whether they're straight or gay, or what
institution they work for. Our innocent chil-
dren deserve no less.

Enterprise Florida needs review


Until 1996 Florida had a
Department of Commerce
managing economic develop-
ment. Starting in '92 it began
to be privatized, under for-
mer Gov. Lawton Chiles, into
a public-private partnership
called Enterprise Florida.
According to a 1992 profile of
Enterprise Florida in Florida
Trend, the organization
would enable select corpora-
tions to be part of "a new
power elite in Florida busi-
ness" that would enjoy
"warm relations with the
Chiles administration."
The Florida Trend article
describes how the Chiles
administration solicited con-
fidential donations of as
much as $150,000 from 10
select corporate donors for
Enterprise Florida and howv
the entity was designed to
"dilute-the influence of
Tallahassee's traditional busi-
ness lobbyists especially
those who are hostile to the
governor." From the start of
Enterprise Florida there

'Florida is seeking an
increase from $111 million to
$278 million for economic
development subsidies to
give to a handful of compa-
nies who promise to keep or
add Florida jobs. But should-
n't every Florida business
matter? Should Florida law-
makers allow Enterprise
Florida to continue to give
, away our money as subsidies
to a handful of corporations
that may not hire any of the
749,000 jobless Floridians?
In a stunning admission
from Enterprise Florida's
chief operating officer in
front of a legislative commit-
ted in Tallahassee, :hi- I ijn- -
izatiin is unable'to assure
that the money it receives
from Florida taxpayers is
being used to hire Floridians.
Integrity Florida part-
nered with Americans for
Prosperity on a research
report titled "Enterprise
Florida: Economic
Development or Corporate
Welfare?" We documented
Enterprise Florida's apparent


conflicts of interest, the
appearance of a pay-to-play
scheme for winning favor-
able treatment and its repeat-
ed practice of picking win-
ners and losers in the
marketplace through target
industries, potential
favoritism and selective
incentive deals.
Floridians have entrusted
Enterprise Florida with sig-
nificant public resources to
deliver high quality job cre-
ation results, yet the organi-
zation has failed to accom-
plish its goals. Our report
found that Enterprise Florida
,has failed to deliver half of its
original job creation goal and
is not meeting its legislative
requirement of 50 percent
funding from the private sec-
tor. Presently, more than 85
percent of Enterprise Florida
funding comes from taxpay-
ers.
Despite writing defensive
rebuttals, Enterprise Florida
has yet to point to any inac-
curacies in our research,
including a second report we
published in April 2012. We
would like to see Enterprise
Florida.answer the questions
raised in our reports. The-
taxpayers of Florida deserve
better than the secrecy and
lack of accountability exhibit-
ed by Enterprise Florida.

The high cost of the $40 crack sale


Local law enforcement agencies are engag-
ing in a noxious practice that does nothing to
stop drug use in Nassau County the con-
trolled buy of small amounts of drugs from
street-level sellers.
While it is never good to have street-level
drug sales in our community, the practice of
conducting "controlled buys" pitting one drug-
seller against another (for a benefit to the first
one) does nothing to stop the flow of illicit-sub-
stances in the community. Instead, it creates
undue burden (and cost) on law enforcement,
the jail, the courts and ultimately, the prisons.
Here's how it works: an individual who is
arrested (usually for possession of marijuana,
cocaine or a few painkillers) is given the option
to enter a "deferred arrest" program that is,
the individual will not be arrested at that time.
The individual is given the opportunity usual-
ly without the advice of a lawyer to sign on to
work for law enforcement as a "confidential -
informant." This confidential informant is then
directed to contact his or her friends or deal-
ers to buy or sell small amounts of drugs.
Once the confidential informant arranges
for the transaction usually a buy law
enforcement sets up the deal. Between three
and six officers are normally involved, and the
undercover set-up and monitoring the "deal"
'takes about three hours. During all of this
time, all of the officers involved in this particu-
lar deal wait and watch. Sometimes the deal is
for $40 worth of rocks of crack cocaine or two


This approach does nothing to
actually stop future drug
activity to the contrary, it
encourages it.... Wouldn't it be bet-
ter to actually conduct bona fide
investigations to determine the
source of the drugs and stop the
drugs at the source?

or three pain pills.
The officers may direct the confidential
informant to make sure the transactions take
place near a school, church, park or play-
ground a location which results in the filing
of a more serious charge (which carries more
prison time). We now have d'ug buys (and
sales) taking place near our schools and parks
at the direction of and under the supervision of
law enforcement.
Additionally, law enforcement officers may
have the informant continue to make buys
from their contact simply to "stack" the
charges against the dealer. The confidential
informant usually receives probation no matter
how much drug activity he or she had been
involved in, and the "target" goes to prison for
two or three years. This approach does noth-


ing to actually stop future drug activity to the
contrary, it encourages it. These types'of sales
could go on endlessly wouldn't it be better to
actually conduct bona fide investigations to
determine the source of the drugs and stop
the drugs at the source?
If the first individual the "C.I." was rep-
resented by the Office of the Public Defender,
the "targets" cannot ethically be represented
by that office after their arrests it is a conflict
of interest. Five entirely new state agencies
have been set up to handle these conflict cases
- the Office of Criminal Conflict Counsel. In
Nassau County, there is one full-time attorney
who does nothing but handle these cases;.this
position has gone from a part-time to full-time
in just five years because of the volume of
cases.
Every case not only places a cost burden on
state agencies, but on local'institutions as well.
Every time a new case comes into the system,
the need grows for more jail space, more pros-
ecutors, more public defenders, more office
space, more clerical staff, more judges, more
court staff and more courthouses.
Dods it make sense to use our limited
resources in this manner?
Our new sheriff has promised a review of
all aspects of his department; hopefully, he will
take a closer look at the practice of conducting
"controlled buys" and the resulting conse-
quences and will use our valued resources in a
more judicious manner.


Penny saved


worth a penny

"OK, so I like to save stifff"
That's what I told my wife after she
cleaned out the desk drawers in her home
study and found two of them filled with my
stuff. Obviously, she hadn't needed those
drawers because my stuff had been the only
occupant for several decades.
Mind you, I am not a hoarder. I've seen
hoarders on television, and I do not pile up
in our living quarters sheetrock-putty buck-
ets, worn-out cushions and cans filled with.
screws. Everybody knows they belong in
the basement.
But I do like to file articles from various
newspapers and magazines. I am also bad
to scribble notes on a piece of paper and
stick it in a file. I have several files labeled
"Column Ideas." I have a
file marked "The South
J and Other Good Things." I
of Everything." I like
being specific so I can find
what I need.
My wife confiscated my
collection of quarterly
*magazines called Nieman .
FROM :Reporti,'which date back
THE to 1974. That's only 152 -
HOME magazines, of course;
OFFICE These irreplaceable gems
now reside sadly in the
-.*- back seat of my pickup,
PhilHudgins truck, a place once used
for passengers, but now a
library. Those publications might be worth
something.
I looked through one of the "Column
Ideas" files tonight and read some of my.
cryptic notes to see if I remembered any-
thing. One piece of paper contained 11
ideas, including "Gremlin owner," "smoking
class" and "being born."
I did do a column on the orange Gremlin
automobile I drove for about 10 years. The
Gremlin, you'll remember, had no rear end,
and my younger daughter was ashamed to
be seen in an orange car that had no rear
end. Slumped down in the passenger's seat,
she would duck her head toward the floor-
board if she spotted one of her friends as
we drove by.
The stop-smoking class turned into an
interesting story, but no column, best I
remember. I do recall one great quote fiom
the story, however. I approached a graduate
of the class and said something like, "Well, I
guess it feels good not to crave cigarettes
anymore, doesn't it?" He looked at me
solemnly and said, "I could smoke one as
long as your leg right now.".
I'm not sure what I was thinking when I
wrote "being born," because I don't remem-
ber being born. I'm told I was born at
home, delivered by Dr. Raleigh Garner, a
handsome, debonair man who drove a
bright red Cadillac convertible. Nobody was
home at the time but me and my daddy. My
mama had gone shopping.
My wife cleared out Lord knows howi
many books, many of which belonged to
me. I went through a few but left the bulk of
the culling to her. She kept some and boxed
up the rest to give to a used-book store. I'd
rather not know what books were in those
boxes.
I'll probably need one of them tomorrow.
You never know. That's why I save stuff.

Beach tilling
There have been a number of
articles, editorials and letters about
caring for our beaches and our tur-
tles.
Unfortunately, confusion con-
tinues about terminology, science
and regulation.
There are two parts to most
seashores. Beach, which is some-
times covered with ocean water,
and dune, which is not,
In a mature seashore there is a
gradual rise from ocean to the high-
est dunes. In a recently replenished
seashore the beach and the dune
are separated by a scarp (small sand
cliff), which marks the extreme
high water mark. This dividing line
gradually recedes away from the
ocean and decreases in height until
it disappears altogether in a mature
situation.
A mature seashore is further
divided into wet and dry beach, the
latter is ocean-covered only at the
highest tides. The seashore near
The Ritz is a mature seashore. In
addition,the dune is divided into
'flat and hilly areas. There is little or
no vegetation growing on the beach,
but eventually plants will take root
in the entire dune area, whether or
not sand has accreted (piled up).
Where there has been recent
replenishment of the beach and
dune (as on the south end of our
island), we see an abbreviated pro-
gression of Wet beach-scarp-flat
dune-hilly dune; because of the
scarp there is little or no dry beach.
Our seashore is currently imma-
ture, although just prior to the
recent replenishment the seashore
near Dunes Club was 'mature (no
scarp).
Many seashore jurisdictions
spend a huge effort encouraging
vegetation both on the hilly and flat
dunes in an effort to encourage
dune accretion and to discourage
sand loss to wind and storm surge
erosion. Most authorities on the
Gulf coast, Cape Cod and Fire
Island (N.Y.), including the Corps of
Engineers, say vegetation (and sand
fences) help extend the hilly dune
seaward on the flat dune... and that
Such buildup certainly "can't hurt."
Indiscriminate driving on or tilling
of the dune area (hilly and flat) kills
or prevents vegetation. Conversely,
such activity harms no vegetation
on the wet or dry beach (seaward of
the scarp).
Tilling of the beach is often
required for several years after a
replenishment of a seashore, appar-
ently to allow sea turtles to lay their'
eggs in areas that are not hard
packed. Unfortunately, as long as
there is a steep high scarp, many
turtles are forced to nest there, at
the edge of salt water intrusion.
Only if the eggs are moved by
concerned folks onto the dune do
thleymature and hatch. Turtles that
manage to overcome the scarp, as
we all know, usually nest in the hilly
dunes.
Some folks confuse land tor-
toises that burrow into the dunes
year around, with sea turtles that
are temporarily nesting.
In summary, the tilling of the
flat dunes (above the scarp) pre-
vents the growth of hilly dunes
towards the ocean and kills all plant
life, with little-or no benefit to our
turtles.
No one can predict how much of
the flat,dune can be preserved (and
turned into hilly dune) by stimulat-
ing strong vegetation and sand
accretion with the .extension of
sand fences; however, every foot of
width and height of dunes adds pro-
tection against the next north
easter. Now 18 months after a suc-
cessful and aggressive replenish-
ment program is the optimal
moment to save as much of the flat
dune depth (100 feet in places) as
possible.

Firearms and
mental health
In-the wake of the Newtown
tragedy, there is a rush for "new
laws" to require mental health back-
ground checks for All seeking to
purchase a firearm.
As a health care provider, I urge
some caution in the rush to legislate.
The result of a requisite mental
health background check would
have a potentially-very detrimental
effect on patients seeking mental
health care; if patients know that
they will subsequently be denied
access to a constitutional right, they
will be tempted to avoid seeking
needed health care. The result for
the individual and the community
would be tragic.
Consider, for example, that 1 in
10 college students experience
depression at some point in their
university. Under the new gun law in
New York, passed last month, 'the
campus health physician is required
to breach the student's confiden-
tiality experience and report him or
her to the authorities as having a
rental health problem. Her future
ability to exercise a constitutional
right to defend herselfwill be severe-
ly affected. This small example alone
represents 2.1 million young peo-
ple. The magnitude of the issues
with the general population are even
greater. These issues are well doc-
umented in the medical literature
(Swianson: Journal of American
Medicine 272013).
We need thoughtful discussion
and not political hyperbole to make
good decisions.

Not the good old USA
The article "Debate about
'arms"'(Voice of the People, Feb.
15) caught my eye and I found
myself agreeing until I got to the
part about, "When the Second
Amendment was written the pri-
mary weapon was the rifle.... So the
Second Amendment provided pro-
tection against foreign invasion as
well as protection against an out of
control government. Today it guar-
antees nothing. Rifles, even auto-
matic ones, are of little value against
tanks, aircraft, missiles, etc."
So let's forget the part about a
government out of control. Change
our reasoning for bearing arms
because we don't have the arms to
match? I may not have jets arid mis-
siles but that doesn't mean I still
don't worry about an out of control
government. I worry about people
such as the writer that tells all of us
his "opinion" on what uses a home-


owner has for guns. Protection
against criminals, hinting and target
shooting. Period.
Well thank you, Mr. Mather, but
I still worry about that government
out of control. Can you convince all
of us that this is not a possibility? A
history lesson would do you good.
This is why we are in the shape
we are in today is because no one
believes that what is happening
could possibly happen in this good
old USA we all grew up in.
Trouble is, it isn't the good old
USA we grew up in anymore!

Support for
truckdrivers,
I want to express my support for
the truck drivers. I believe that you
would find that most of them are
parked because they are taking their
DOT-required rest break. Most of
them have gotten permission to tem-
porarily park their rigs in that spot
("Illegal truck stops," Feb. 13). And
that they don't like it any more than
you do but they have no choice.
The nearest genuine truckstop is
at exit 1 in Georgia. I agree thht we
are seeing more and more parked
rigs. That is probably because our
local stores and businesses are
doing better and are, therefore,
sending and receiving more loads of
goods. You might have also noticed
the increase in train traffic and port
shipping over the last few years for
the same reason. This is all really
good news for us and our local econ-
omy. What we need is a nearby
authorized place for the drivers to
take their required rest. I believe
that it should be the responsibility of
our big-box stores and of the local
industry to provide a rest area. They
are bringing these drivers into our
community, often with only minutes
left on their legal driving clocks.
After being unloaded most driv-
ers will be required to stop, either
because their clock has run out, or
because their employer will not
allow them to move until they are
assigned the pickup for their next
load. This is a nationwide problem.
Some communities welcome the
truck traffic and they have numer-
ous authorized places for the drivers
to rest. Other areas of the country
resent the trucks and chase them
away. But only after they have
received the groceries and clothes
for their store shelves.
There are some improvements
being made to the national shipping
system but these changes are not
mandated and are only adopted
because of local business decisions.
In Fernandina we have two shining


RICK MCKEEf/HE AUGUSTA CHRONICLE


examples of the right way to do it.
'Our mills and port work,with two
local trucking/transfer companies
for some of their daily deliveries. In
that system the long-distance trucks
drop their loaded trailers in yards in
the A1A industrial park or on South
Eighth. Then the local companies
use short cabs to shuttle the loads in
to the mill or to the port. This costs
the customer more money than a
direct delivery. So you won't see a
typical business volunteering to use
this system. But it does shield the
community from over-the-road truck
drivers parking in local lots to take
their required rest. Our local drivers
are familiar with local roadways and
mill procedures.
We should help to improve these
systems and encourage the local
businesses to support their drivers
who are only doink their best under
difficult circumstances. Don't just
leave it up to a long-distance driver
to figure out where to rest after he
delivers your goods. Help him or
her to do the right thing. And make
sure that there is a right thing for
them in this community.

Cruiseships
I once took a cruise on the
Norwegian Dream to the Baltic Sea.
No problems. The latest Carnival
debacle is a huridinger. The cruise
ships are cheaply constructed to
maximize the incomes of the cor-
porate CEOs.
Every cruise ship should have
two engine rooms, two pump rooms,
two generator rooms, two fresh
water supply rooms, two sewage
processing systems, etc. Every sys-
tem should be separate from all the
others arid should be protected by
separate C02 fire suppression sys-
tems. The rooms should be sepa-
rated by firewalls.
I will not take any more cruises.
I don't like being trapped in a steel
tube with thousands of strangers
and no way to take care ofanything.
I especially will not take any cruises
with ships that have Italian captains.
Take a look at the captains of the last
five cruise ship disasters, especially
the one that hit the rocks in Italy.
Nobody oversees the safety of
cruise ships. Nobody oversees the
safety provisions and even the basic
designs of cruise ships. The U.S.
Coast Guard has no authority over
cruise ships registered in foreign
countries.
If you want to see a foreign coun-
try, go by land, not by sea. It will be
much safer.

Life with an imp


She was with her foster mother for a year,
and now a year and a half with us. It has
taken this long for Dumela's real personali-
ty to manifest itself. There's no doubt about
it now, she's an imp.
Right now, for instance, as I type this
lying on my bed (hey it's a rough life), she
is trying to engage me in a challenging
game of "String." I've got my bedside draw-
er full of various ribbons and strings and
when I am nearby Dumela stares intently
at me and at the drawer until I open it and
choose her string for the clay. And then,
once it's extracted, we're off! I toss the rib-
bon around, she chases it.
S But then I get bored way
before she does. String,
after all, can only hold my
attention for so long.
S In exasperation, even-
.....T a tually Dumela takes the
S" "':" ribbon in her mouth and
carries it off. And,
immersed in my writing
WILD again, I soon forget about
WAYS the cat and her game. But
not Dumela she some-
times takes revenge. She
Pat hides under the bed and
Foster-Turley waits for me to get up -
this may be even 30 min-
utes later and strikes out at my feet as I
pass by. Despite the number of times this
happens, it most always startles me. That's
apparently what she wants. She runs joyful-
ly out to engage me in mo'e activity, happy
again to have a playmate.
Dumela climbs more than any other cat
I've known, and carries things in her
mouth just like a dog. For awhile her
favorite nocturnal activity was to go into
our office, climb up the six-foot-high book-
shelves and drag a stuffed animal from the
top shelf to the floor. Many mornings we
find the same stuffed animal on the floor,
and we replace it, only to find it on the floor
again the next day. But then she decided
that the top shelf of the bookcase is a good
place for her to be too. Now, at night she
spends a few hours in her "condo" as we
call it, high on the top shelf nestled.
between her stuffed otter companions.
That's well and good, but eventually she
decides it's time for us to wake up and play
String with her. If we decide to sleep in a
bit later than usual, forget it. On the shelf
in our kitchen is a collection of shark teeth,
rocks and assorted shells collected from
who knows where. Dumela has discovered
that one of these objects makes a perfect
wake-up call. She clifibs the shelf, picks
out that particular flattish rock, tosses it
down and then makes as much racket as
she can pushing it around the tile floor.
She always chooses that particular rock
out of many, for its fine acoustical proper-
ties.


From the start I've trained
Dumela to never touch the
puzzle. She is more than wel-
come to watch the proceedings
from a folded towel on the
table, her spot.' She is allowed
to walk around the puzzle, but
not on it, and to never mess
with the pieces. But now the
imp has developed a new activ-
ity. In the morning sometimes I
am finding just one puzzle piece
right beside the chair I usually
sit in. The imp is at it again.

Unlike any other cat I know, Dumela
enjoys water games. Often we hear her
splashing in her water bowl, emptying the
contents around the floor. Sometimes for
extra fun I put ice cubes in her bowl and
she pushes them around too. And, when
she hears a toilet flush she often shows up
to watch the water swirl down the drain.
Strange cat.
Dumela has also learned the parame-
ters of my jigsaw puzzle game. I always
have a 1,000-piece puzzle in operation on a
table in the front room and I spend my
Breaks pondering the puzzle and retooling
my brain for the next chapter I have to
write. It's a left-brain, right-brain kind of
exercise for me. When I am pondering how
the various colors and shapes fit together,
some part of my brain is still thinking
about the task at hand. When I get back to
my computer I am recharged and my fin-
gers take over at the keyboard with new
inspiration.

Some people swear by having two or
three cats to keep each other company, but
not us. We enjoy a cat that interacts with us
all the lime, a single feline member of our
pride. And if that cat is an imp, better yet!

FWC unveils plans to conserve 23 species


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) just posted draft action
plans to conserve 23 species of
native wildlife and wants the
public to weigh in by reviewing
them online.
Those reading the plans for
animals familiar and not so famil-
iar such as the osprey,
Everglades mink, Pine Barrens
treefrog and reddish egret -
will learn about the species' bio-
logical backgrounds and habi-
tats.
After reviewing the individual
action plans at MyFWC.com
/Imperiled, people can com-
ment on what is proposed in the
scientific material to conserve
each animal. The comment peri-
od on these plans continues
through March 13.


"Encouraging public and
stakeholder involvement is at
the heart of what the FWC is
doing to conserve imperiled
native wildlife," said Claire
Sunquist Blunden, the FWC's
stakeholder coordinator for
imperiled species management
planning. "Please take advan-
tage of this chance to look at
our draft action plans for 23
species and tell us how they can
be improved," she said.
These 23 plans are a vital
component of Florida's new con-
servation model, which first
involved preparing Biological
Status Reviews for imperiled
species and now requires ldevel-
oping plans to conserve each
one of them. The 23 species are
the first group among 60 species
that will receive draft species


action plans. The. remaining
species action plans will be
released this spring and sum-
mer.
Once the action plans are
revised, FWC teams will look
for common themes and actions
to develop Integrated Conser-
vation Strategies. Finally, an
Imperiled Species Management
Plan will be developed that ties
together the action plans for
each of 60 species, addressing
the commonalities of what's nec-
essary to conserve all the
wildlife represented in the
plan.
The 23 draft species action
plans include 11 bird species
(Wakulla seaside sparrow,
Scott's seaside sparrow,
Worthington's marsh wren,
Marian's marsh wren, reddish


egret, little blue heron, roseate
spoonbill, tricolored heron,
snowy egret, white ibis and
osprey in Monroe County); five
fish species (blackmouth shiner,
Southeastern tessellaltId darter,
bluenose shiner, harlequin
darter and I ke Eustis pupfish);
four mammals (Everglades
mink, Sanibel island rice rat,
Homosassa shrew and Eastern
chipmunk); two reptiles (Bar-
bour's map turtle and Suwannee
cooter); and one amphibian
(Pine Barrens treefrog)..
For more information and

ment on them, go to

Perfume maybe eau de diethyl phthalate


Dear EarthTalk: I've always
suspected that perfumes and
colognes must not be too healthy
simply because of the way the
smell of most of them bothers me.
Am I correct? Is there informa-
tion available on this issue?
Lucinda Barry,
Minneapolis, Minn.
Ahhh the sweet smell of
petrochemicals! The Environ-
mental Working Group.(EWG)
reports that, while many popu-
lar perfumes, colognes and
body sprays contain trace
amounts of natural essences,
they also typically contain a
dozen or more potentially haz-
ardous synthetic chemicals,
someofwhich are derived from
petroleum. To protect trade
secrets, makers are allowed to
withhold fragrance ingredients,
so consumers can't rely on
labels to know what hazards
may lurk inside that new bottle
of perfume.
"A rose may be a rose,"
reports EWG. "But that rose-
like fragrance in your perfume
may be something else entire-
ly, concocted from any number


of the fragrance industry's
3,100 stock chemical ingredi-
ents, the blend of which is
almost always kept hidden from
the consumer."
The Campaign for Safe Cos-
metics, a coalition of over 100
groups seeking transparency
about chemicals in cosmetics,
commissioned independent lab-
oratory tests that revealed 38
secret chemicals in 17 leading
fragrances. The top offenders?
American Eagle Seventy Seven
topped the list with 24, followed
by Chanel Coco with 18 and
Britney Spears Curious and
Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio
each with 17.
"The average fragrance
product tested contained 14
secret chemicals not listed on
the label," reports EWG, which
analyzed the Campaign's data.
"Among them are chemicals
associated with hormone dis-,
ruption and allergic reactions,
and many substances that have
not been assessed for safety in
personal care products." EWG
adds that some of the undis-
closed ingredients are chemi-


calls "with troubling hazardous
properties or with a propensity
to accumulate in human tis-
sues." Examples include diethyl
phthalate, a chemical found in
97 percent of-Americans and
linked to sperm damage in
human epidemiological stud-
ies, and musk ketone, which
concentrates in human fat tis-
sue and breast milk.
EWG explains that ingredi-
ents not in a product's "hidden
fragrance mixture" must be list-
ed on the label, so makers dis-
close some chemicals but
"lump others together in the
generic category of'fragrance'."
EWG blames the U.S. gov-
ernment in part, pointing out
that the Food and Drug
Administration "has not
assessed the safety of the vast
majority" of secret chemicals
used in spray-on products such
as. fragrances. "Fragrance
secrecy is legal due to a giant
loophole in the Federal Fair
Packaging and Labeling Act of
1973, which requires compa-
nies to list cosmetics ingredi-
ents on the product labels but


explicitly'exempts fragrance,"
reports EWG. As such, the cos-
metics industry has kept the
public in the dark about fra-
grance ingredients, "even those
that present potential health
risks or build up in people's
bodies."
For more information,
check out EWG's May 2010
"Not So Sexy" report, available
on the group's website. Also,
EWG's SkinDeep database
serves as an evolving source of
information on the ingredients
(and their health risks) in thou-
sands of cosmetics and related
products widely available on
store shelves.

Suspensions for altered rifles

Deputies disciplined in 2011 under Seagraves


GARRIFI'T PILIICAN
News Leader

Two Nassau County
Sheriff's deputies were sus-
pended from duty in 2011 for
violating policy alter li, :. mod-
ified i'in-.;, ,e..' .;. -I -i 1 assault
rifles with personal parts,
according to sheriff's records.
Sgt. Jon Slebos and then nar-
cotics detective Brandon Smith'
received suspensions after an
internal probe found Slebos had
altered their assigned AR-15 and
M-16 rifles and others against
policy and orders from then
sheriff Tommy Seagraves, the
records show.
SSeagraves suspended Slebos
for one clay without pay and
Smith I,. fi. II ,o without pay,
reduced from an initial 10-day
suspension.
Investigators found the rifle
modifications broke agency pol-
icy that forbids deputies from
using personal weapons while
on duty or altering agency-
issued weapons.
Smith, a 10-year veteran,
would later resign, citing a hos-
-tile work environment he said
formed after Seagraves fund
out the deputy had recorded
office conversations as an FBI
informant. Slebos remains on
the force.
The News-Leader reviewed
the records after a public
records request to new Sheriff
Bill Leeper for the internal
affairs files from Seagraves'
administration. A spokesperson
for Seagraves' office had previ-
ously argued'that documents
fiom active employees' person-
nel files were exempt from
Florida's broad public records
laws, which the newspaper dis-
puted.
At the time, it was alleged
that Slebos, a training coordi-
nator at the agency's gun range,
had been selling gun parts to
deputies and teaching them
how to circumvent departmen-
tal policy barring weapon alter-
ations. It was also believed that
Smith had Slebos alter his rifle
after Seagraves denied his
request to use his personaln'ifle
while on duty, records show.
On Sept. 30,2010, Seagraves
relieved Slebos of his duties at
the gun range and armory.
A day later, the sheriff
.launched a p ol,, int) com-
-'"laints that 'i.Ti,'r and Sruith
had modified their agency-
issued rifles by swapping out
parts from the tops of their


Investigators found the rifle modifications

altering agency-issued weapons.


weapons. Records show the pair
had worked around the policy
barring iin..,lii 'i'1,i i, because
"technically" the lower portion,
or firing mechanism, was con-
sidered the gun.
While Smith and Slebos
agreed with'-, i.:. -11ili -.llga-
tions, investigators also relied
on independent witnesses to
round out their review. One of
those witnesses, Sgt. Leon
Woolard, recalled Slebos advis-
ing trainees that weapons could
be altered and still fall within
departmental policy. Smith and
then narcotics detective Don
Hyatt Jr. had rifles altered by
Slebos, Woolard told investiga-
tors.
"Woolard stated during the
training course for the AR-'
15/M-16 patrol rifles Sergeant
Slebos stated that the deputies
could buy personal equipment
for the rifles and Slebos would
install the equipment onto the
NCSO issued AR-15/M-16
patrol rifles. Woolard stated that
Slebos advised the training class
that the equipment would not
change the fact that the rifle
was NCSO property," an inves-
tigator's report said. "... Woolard
stated that it was his under-
standing that if you purchased
any equipment for' the rifles
Slebos would install it and that
this action would be authorized
modifications."
Investigators, in the course
of their probe, found that Slebos
had modified his own rifle plus
rifles for Smith, Hyatt and other


deputies, and had previously
instructed deputies that the
guns could be altered and
remain within agency guide-
lines. Slebos also admitted sell-
ing personal gun parts, but
denied selling them out of the
armory.
Investigators also found that
Smith's request to use a per-
sonal rifle had been denied
before changes were made to
the gun, records show.
A disciplinary committee,
comprising commanding
deputies, concluded Smith was
insubordinate for refusing an
order from Seagraves and vio-
lated the agency's "good order
and discipline" policy. It rec-
ommended that Smith receive a
10-day suspension without pay,
a penalty later reduced to five
days.
The committee agreed that
Slebos violated the agency's pol-
icy on "Performance of Duty"
but did not commit insubordi-
nation. He was suspended with-
out pay for one day.
Slebos has previously been
disciplined for-shooting resi-
dents' pet dogs. He was placed
on probation and removed from
patrol duty in 2001 for shooting
five dogs in less than four years,
including three that year.
Slebos was appointed the
reviewing deputy in at least two
deputy-involved dog shootings
since then. In both of those
cases, the shooting was deter-
mined to be a justified use of
force.

Join Rigsby for Do the Unthinkable 5K walk and run


Fernandina Beach Christian A, :,l n. ;. ;1.l1
host its first Do the Unthinkable 5K Walk/Run
with Scott Rigsby Saturday. Proceeds will ben-
efit the Scott Rigsby Foundation and
Fernandina Beach Christian Academy.
Rigsby has done the unthinkable. On a hot
summer day just prior to his first college
semester, Rigby was riding in'the back of a
pickup truck in rural Georgia with friends
after a hard day of landscaping work. T1, I
were talking sports, girls and plans for the
weekend when the truck was hit by a l.i-mini
18-wheeler, throwing him underneath a three-
ton attached trailer and dragging him 300 feet.
Rigsby's back suffered third-degree burns,
his right leg was severed off and his left leg
hung barely intact. His life was seemingly over
or so it seemed for Rigsby. Over a decade of
countless doctor visits and hospitals, 26 sur-
geries, additional amputation, depression, fear
and uncertainty, Rigsby had become a profes-
sional patient.
Iri 2005 he decided to change his life and


.- '"'""



the world by breaking down barriers for physi-
. 11\i-. h:11 .l i I athletes. He believes he has a


genuine purpose to make a difference in the
lives of people. A relentless and determined
Rigsby arose from a small town and is now
impacting the world.
He completed 13 triathlons and five road
races on his way to setting world records for a
double below-the-knee amputee in the full
marathon, half Ironman And international dis-
tance triathlon, earning him a spot on the 2006
USA Triathlon Team. As his accomplishments
mounted, so did Rigsby's desire to do the
unthinkable and take his mission to the next
level. He would tackle the toughest endurance
test of them all, the Ironman, to raise the bar
and inspire all challenged athletes to reach
beyond their circumstances.
On Oct. 13, 2007, after enduring the ele-
ments for more than 16 hours, Rigsby became
the first double-amputee on prosthetics in the
world to finish an Ironman distance triathlon
at the 140.6-mile World Championship in
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
Do the unthinkable with Rigsby Saturday


as he runs with Fernandina Beach Christian
Academy in the inaugural Do the Uniithijl... 1..I,
5K. Registrations are under way online at
www.fernandinachristianacademy.com and at
the school, which is located in First Baptist
Church, 1600 South Eighth St., Fernandina
,Beach. Registration on the day of the race
begins at 7 am. Cost is $25. The fee for kids
12 and under is $15. The first 200 participants
will receive a T-shirt. The race will begin at
Main Beach at 8 a.m. Participants will run
down Atlantic Avenue, through Egans Creek
and then back to Main Beach.
An awards ceremony and bagel breakfast
for all participants will be held after the race at
First Baptist Church in the gym along with the
opportunity to hear Rigsby tell about his amaz-
ing journey. Rigsby will also speak more about
his testimony Sunday at the 10:15 a.m. service
at First Baptist.

Carpenters

House wins

on final out

Action in the Family Dri-
ven Softball League Saturday
found The Carpenters House
winning as many games in
the first two weeks as it did
the entire season last year.
First Baptist Gold struck
first with three runs by Gar-
rett Lay, Hollie Fannin and
Namon Johnson. TCH found
itself down 7-3 going into the
sixth inning but Sabrina
"Soup" Campbell and Johnny
Lloyd scored, bringing TCH
within one score of tying the
game.
TCH held Jeff Schol's
Gold team scoreless in the
final inning. The final inning
for The Carpenters House
began with Teddy Oviatt re-
cording the first out. Kristyn
Crummey hit a single fol-
lowed by Jacob Calhoun
drawing a walk. Jessica
Jammes advanced the run-
ners on a sacrifice.
When Coach Glenn Par-
rish placed himself in the last
batting position, he did so by
sacrificing playing time so his
players would have an oppor-
tunity to play more. But Par-
rish, who happens to be one
of the better hitters in the
league, had no idea he would
find himself in a position to
keep his team in the win col-
umn.
Of anyone on the TCH ros-
ter, Parrish would be their
best chance to win the game.
So with two runners on and
down by one run with two
outs in the final inning,
Parrish answered the call,
driving in both Crummey and
Calhoun to win the game in
dramatic fashion. The win
leaves TCH tied in first place
with First Baptist Blue at
three wins each.
In other FDSL action, First
Baptist Blue defeated Cele-
bration Baptist Church 11-10.
Phil Hawkins hil tlhrr.f, ,-r-
four for Ttam Bluk1 while
Herman c ,,k. representing
the 60-and-over crowd,
recorded his first home run
of the season for Celebration.
Journey Three appears to
be the cream of the crop as it
defeated Five Points 22-12.
Billy Smith and Steven John-
son both hit fourfor-r-four for
Team Three.
Nick Gaskill's Yulee Over-
flow defeated Journey Two 8-
6. Overflow's Will Woods hit
two-for-thiee, which included
the first out-of-the-park home
run on Field Two.
First Baptist Blue defeated
Blackrock Baptist 12-9. Ash-
ley Smith hit three-for-three
for Team Blue. Journey One
defeated Christwalk 18-14.
Taylor Massey and Ryan
Masteller both hit four-for-
four while Johnathan Ball hit
the first out-of-the-park home
run on Field One for Team
One. Springhill Baptist defeat-
ed Memorial United Metho-
dist 13-3. Amy Crosby, Sean
Gossett, Mike Darby and
Justin Darby each hit three-
for-four for SBC. Yulee
Baptist Church defeated
Blackrock 12-10. Pam Tomes
and Jimmy Shelton hit three-

Full moon bassin


With a full moon
arriving on
Monday, the
Amelia Island
Fish Club is planning a two-
day trophy bass fishing trip to
Rodman Reservoir. Rodman
Reservoir is hailed as one of
the country's best trophy
bass fishing lakes with bass
annually taken in the 6- to 12-
pound class.
The lake record is 17.5
pounds while a 23-pound
largemouth bass was shocked
during a survey and study
taken by the University of
Florida.
Last February the Amelia
Island Fish Club spent two
days fishing on Rodman Re-
servoir during the full moon;
several largemouth bass in
the five- to eight-pound class
were caught and released.
Jim Maughon caught the
largest bass weighing just
over 12 pounds.
During the 2012 fishing
season, Rodman Reservoir
was drawn down so shallow
water weed beds would dry
out and die, then replenish
with new growth when the
lake was re-flooded.
/This spring Rodman
Reservoir is back to its.nor-
mal lake level and bass fisher-
men will be able to fish the
shallow spawning waters of
the lake: More importantly,
new vegetation growth should
generate an excellent spawn
for all species of gamefish,
including crappie, bream, cat-


fish and
largemouth
bass.
Recent
reports on
Rodman
Reservoir
S are confirm-
Ss iing the big
female bass
OUTDOORS are begin--
-*---- ning to
TerryLacoss spawn, par-
ticularly
where deep channels access
shallow flats. Bass are actual-
ly spawning on the knees of
cypress trees and where the
water is super clear. Bass fish-
ermen are working topwater
plugs and dark colored plastic
worms close to shallow water,
cypress knees with excellent
success.
One of the more success-
ful surface plugs is the frog-
colored Devil's Horse. This
cigar-shaped plug has a pro-
peller on the front and on the
rear of the plug and, when
retrieved with an erratic
swimming action, draws
vicious strikes from even the
wariest of largemouth bass.
The Gary Yamamoto
Sinko five-inch plastic worm
in the black with blue flake
color pattern is also an excel-
lent choice. The weighted
plastic worm casts like a bul-
let and has a slow sinking
action that triggers strikes
from spawning bass.
The plastic worm is rigged
on a 5/0 wide gal worm hook


and paired with spin tackle
for making long casts. Fill
your spinning reel with 20-
pound moss-colored braided
fishing lines while employing
a three-foot section of 20-
pound fluorocarbon shock
leader. This setup will allow
you to make long and accu-
rate casts when spawning
bass are easily spooked.
Anchoring your bass boat
and casting live wild shiners
fished under a float is also a
deadly Rodman Reservoir
fishing tactic. Slow trolling
live shiners either under a
small float or simply by barbi-
ng the live shiner from right
under the mouth and right up
through the top of mouth is
key. Trolling shiners without
a float allows the live shiner to
swim deep just over the cy-
press knees and weed beds.
During the next few weeks
bass will be roaming the shal-
low flats during the spawn
and post-spawn fishing sea-
sons. Although a huge spawn
is set to take place during the
next few weeks, bass in
Rodman Reservoir will be
spawning right through the
month of March. Keep in
mind that pre-spawn bass will
be feeding heavily before the.
spawn, making shiner fishing
on the famed bass waters an
excellent choice.
The AIFC is scheduled to'
headquarter out of the
Quality Inn in downtown
Palatka and right on the St.
Johns River. Fishing will be


Monday.and Tuesday. Guided
bass trips are available or fish-


ermen may bring their own
boats. Call the Amelia Island

motivated me to go out and prove that I can handle the lead."


Less than, two months after
Turning 50, Rocco Mediate won
Sthe Allianz Championship in his
debut on the Champions Tour.
Mediate shot a final-round 71 and finished at
17-under 199, good for a two-shot victory over
Tom Pemice Jr. "I'm ecstatic," said Mediate.
'I have been saying all week it's never easy.
It shouldn't be easy." Mediate becomes the
16th player to win in his Champions Tour
debut, joining the likes of Arnold Palmer,
Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. Ironically, the
previous player to win his Champions Tour
debut was Pemice, his playing partner, who
did it in 2009. It was Mediate's first victory
since the 2010 Frys.com Open.


lc, One of the most difficult things for the amateur golfer to adjust to is the long putt
Son the green. Long putting is a skill that is rarely practiced and, consequently,
S whenever we have a very long putt to attempt, the end result is usually not
what we want. Most amatuers faced with a long putt automatically go into the
thought process that they need to smack the ball to get it to the hole. This
thinking pattern will get you a three-putt more times than not. When you try to
kill the putt, all of the motion in your putting stroke comes from the wrist. The ball usually
pops up off the ground and there is little to no chance for success. A long putting stroke
needs to be generated by the shoulders with nothing to do with your wrists.

Zoo. The zoo is sponsored by Ainelia Residents In Action
for the Symphony (ARIAS) and consists of 40 wind,

CATS ANGELS


Cats Angels has many
adult cats waiting for their
"forever" homes, but we
would like to introduce you to
a younger kitty this week
before he becomes an adult.
Martin is just about the
sweetest and most handsome
little guy you would ever want
to meet. He is 9 months old
with shiny and soft black fur.
Martin is a friendly and play-
ful boy who gets along with
all the cats in the Adoption
Center. Martin loves people
too and is quite a "helper"
with any task you have. His
brother recently found his
"forever" home and now it's
time for Martin to have a lov-
ing family to call his own.
Cats Angels has cats of every
size and description Who have
been with us far too-long and
we are determined to find
safe and loving homes for
them this year. If you can take
responsibility for just one ani-
mal in need; what a difference
it would make. Visit our
Adoption Center, our website
www.catsangels.com or call
321-2267 to meet with an
Adoption Volunteer.

At last week's Westminster
Kennel Club Dog Show, a
beautiful, purebred American
Foxhound was one of the
finalists. We have one too!
Bullseye is a sweet, good-
natured fellow who is goingto
make someone a faithful, lov-
ing pet. We believe he's about
5 or 6 years old, and he's
accustomed to living with a
family. He's housetrained and
gets along well with people,
including children, and other
pets. His owners couldn't
keep him anymore because of
circumstances that had noth-
ing to do with Bullseye. They
say he's a great dog and loves
to ride in the car. He does
know how to get over or
under a fence so that he can
follow his hound nose any-
where. He walks very well on
a leash, and is happy to follow
your lead. And he has the
nicest face and smile, and the
prettiest brown eyes ever,
plus a super-soft coat for pet-
ting. Bullseye will be your
very own "best in show"!
Tomas is a ton of fun, and
he's ready to make you happy


every day! He's a young
Domestic Short Hair mix with
an absolutely gorgeous
orange tabby coat. He is less
than a year old so he still has
plenty of playfulness, and he
just loves it when you engage
him with a toy! He gets along
well with the other cats in our
cattery, too. We think he'll
make your life even brighter
.than his great orange coat!
You can see pictures and
videos of our adoptable dogs
and cats on our website,
-NassauHumaneSociety.com.
Our Adoption Waggin'
team is cooking up something
special this weekend! Our vol-
unteers and several of our
great adoptable dogs will be
at the Amelia Island
Montessori School's Chili
Cook Off this coming
Saturday. The cook off will be
on North Second Street from
11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and you can
meet our .dogs in the parking
lot behind Cafe Karibrew
between Second and Third
streets until about 3 p.m. You
just might fall in love with
your very own "chili dog!"
