Sheriff Tommy Seagraves and
Nassau County staff met Thursday
at the sheriff's behest to compare
spending on Animal Control, but
they remain more than $250,000
apart.
Seagraves has proposed an
annual budget of $939,398 to take
over administration of the shelter.
"Given our fiscal condition, we
believe the top amount we could
go is in the area of $680,000," not
including capital improvements,
said County Coordinator Ed
Sealover. *
He is due to make a recom-
mendation about Animal Control
at the regular county commission
meeting Wednesday morning and
said he will suggest talks with the
sheriff continue.
Seagraves' proposed budget is

70 percent more than the county
currently spends on the shelter.
He pointed out a review by the
Nassau Humane Society calls for a
. 60 percent increase and $300,000 in
capital improvements. The Nassau
Veterinary Association also backs
Seagraves' proposal.
"We do not disagree that more
people need to be in the employ of
Animal Control and more money
needs to be budgeted," said
Sealover. "At the same time we
have to shave $3 million in spend-

referring to a recent voter-approved
amendment to the Florida
Constitution that will reduce prop-

County Attorney David Hallman
added, "For any program that he

County that they want the cost of

That said, Sealover noted he
also tells the county commission -

.ns to retire


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Nassau County Property
Appraiser Greg Haddock will not
seek reelection this year, choosing
instead to retire at the end of his
term.
Tammy Stiles, supervisor of
the appraiser's Geographic
Information System and a 20-year
employee of the office, is expect-
ed to seek election to the seat, one
of 'the county's constitutional
offices to be decided in November.
Haddock, 58, was elected in
2004 after serving as the longtime
deputy to former property apprais-
er James S. Page, who died pre-
maturely last year. Page's death
was one of the factors that influ-
enced Haddock's decision to
retire.
"It really got me started think-
ing about the mortality we all
face," Haddock said Wednesday.
Having spent 37 years
employed in the property apprais-
er's office, "I had to be honest with
myself and make a decision if I


r, had the energy
and drive to
dedicate anoth-
,.. er four years to
this job," he
... said.
"After a lot
Sof soul search-
ing and prayer,
Haddock I decided it was
time to retire."
Haddock
informed his staff Tuesday. He
endorsed Stiles to succeed him.
'This particular job, you need
to have somebody with experi-
ence,' Haddock said. Stiles, he
said, "can keep moving the office
in,the right direction."
She has supervised one of his
chief accomplishments while in
office, Haddock said, the Geo-
graphic Information System, or
GIS, a vital tool for mapping that
helps in land appraisals.
He also pointed to success of
the office's web site, which is used

sioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to WW'
approve a proposal by Scrub-a- ,. ..
Honime of Michigan to repaint lthe ..
tower. Vice Mayor Joe Gerritv
voted against.
According to Utilities Director
John Mandrick, the tower has
not been repainted since it was
erected in 1999 to replace a tower
dating to 1933. He also said he
recently found a spot four feet
square on the tower where the
paint has corroded, exposing the
steel.
Scrub-A-Home was one of five
companies chosen by coatings
manufacturer Tnemec that were
qualified to apply a special paint
called Hydroflon. Mandrick says
the product will not lose its gloss'
for 15 years and should last for
20. The current urethane coat-
ing on the tower is meant to last
about six years, he said.
Scrub-A-Home was chosen
because its $58,000 bid was the
lowest of the five. The highest ANGELA DAUGHTRY/NEWS-LEADER

Paul Raymond Duncan, 87,
known widely as "Mr. Paul the
Bread Man" of Fernandina Beach,
passed away in the early morning
hours of Feb. 5, 2008, after a pro-'
longed illness.
W He leaves a
large and loving
family and count-
less friends to | |L 1
celebrate his life. .
Paul passed .44
exactly 10 years .'
after the death of
his beloved wife,
Lola McCall Duncan, to whom he
was married for 57 years.
Well-known in the community,
Paul worked as a salesman for
American .Bakeries, first in
Waycross, Ga., and then in
Northeast Florida, where he was
based in Fernandina Beach, rising
in the pre-dawn hours and working
until far past sundown to ensure his
deliveries in the 32 years he
worked for AB. Known for his
warmth and exceptional sense of
humor, he was universally wel-
Scomed wherever he went.
An accountant by trade, Paul
learned quickly after some time
behind a desk that he'd rather be
more actively engaged in the
world. He ran a small
grocery/butcher shop for a time,
worked for-the ACL Railroad and
finally settled in as a bakery sales-
man, where he could be outdoors
a great deal of the time and work
with a variety of people in the var-
ious stores he served.
A devout Christian and
Freemason, Paul was a deacon at
Blackrock Baptist Church in
Fernandina Beach as well as serv-
ing as deacon in churches he
attended in the past, including
Springhill Baptist Church and Five
Points Baptist Church in
Fernandina, and Central Baptist
1 11 Church in Waycross, Ga.
During World War II and the
Korean War, Paul served in the
military in the U.S. Army national
Guard. Ready for service, a crush
injury to his leg kept him closer to
home; he carried a sight limp for
the rest of his life, which made his
** fast walk unmistakably his own.
--- Paul was an avid fisherman and
nature lover, living for some 40
4 years on the Atlantic coast in
0 Fernandina, where he taught his
five grandsons to swim in the
waters in front of his home, surf
fished with his wife, Lola, and
walked the sandy beaches with his
daughters Paula Kaye and Ren6e.
Throughout; he was a loving, kind
and supportive, husband, father,
grandfather and great-grandfather,
with an open heart and mind and
a ready chuckle. He enjoyed life.


Paul is survived by a devoted
family: his daughters, Paula Kay
Duncan Todd and husband
Gordon Todd of Fernandina Beach
and Ren6e Duncan of Hilliard; two
sisters, Agnes Duncan McClelland
of Waycross, Ga. and Doris
Duncan Blount of Blackshear, Ga.,
and husband, Leon; and the fami-
lies of five grandsons. These
include Clyde "Butch" Duncan
Johnson and wife, Briana, with chil-
dren Sarah Jayne and Tanner of
St. Helena Island, S.C.; Michael
Paul Johnson and wife, Susan, with
children Michael, Elizabeth, Dustin
and Rebecca, of Fernandina Beach;
Charles Guy Johnson and wife,
Eve, with children Randy, Evan,
James and Courtney; Kristopher
James Johnson and wife, Stacey,
with children Kaylawand Colby, of
Fernandina Beach; and Kevin
Raymond Johnson of Monticello.
Paul's father and mother were
Ernest Guy Duncan and Annie
Mae Cochran Duncan; brothers,
all deceased, include Harold
"Hank" Duncan, James Duncan
and Hubert Duncan.
Viewing was held from 5-7 p.m.
Thursday at Oxley-Heard Funeral
Home. Funeral services will be
held at 2 p.m. today, Friday, Feb. 8,
at Springhill Baptist Church, where
Paul was a longtime member. The
Rev. Jackie Hayes of Springhill and
Daryl Bellar of the Journey Church
will deliver the eulogy and officiate
over the services.
He will be laid to rest following
the services beside his wife in
Springhill Baptist Church
Cemetery.
Flowers and remembrances are
welcome as well as gifts in Paul's
name to the Building Fund of
Blackrock Baptist Church, 96362

Veterinarians support dawn


of new era' for Animal Control


SIAN PERRY
News- Leader
The Nassau Veterinary
Association is solidly behind
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves' pro-
posal to take over administration of
Animal Control and said his budg-
et of $939,398 is on target.
"We really feel that the number
is probably right," said Dr. Jim
O'Brien, spokesperson for the
association. 'The debate should
not be is the budget too much, but
how are we going to get the
money."
O'Brien said the veterinarians
met with Seagraves, his attorney,
finance director and proposed shel-
ter director David Flagler on
Tuesday night to study the plan
and then voted unanimously to sup-
port the endeavor.
'This is something that we feel
that key elements are being met,"
said O'Brien. "One is the key issue
of accountability."


That includes boosting the
number of Aninmal Control officers
to five currently there are two -
and hiring Flagler, former division
chief of Jacksonville Animal Care
and Control. Seagraves also is pro-
posing a shelter manager, field
manage, out reach manager, four
shelter assistants, two office assis-
tants, an accountant/records clerk
and a veterinary technician for total
salaries of $469,000.
O'Brien said while the total
budget may seem high to com-
missioners it's 70 percent more
than the current budget 'They
just don't know what a real budg-
et looks like. I think it would be a
mistake to look for a low budget."
Clouding the issue is the fact
that records for the past three
years were poorly kept or are miss-
ing, as a Nassau Humane Society
review has found. An audit by the
Clerk of Court's Office should be
complete by next week.
Without hard data on how


many animals were taken in, adopt-
ed outl and euthanized, it is dillficult
to formulate a budget or know spe-
cific needs.
"A year from now we'll know
the real budget," said O'Brien, but
for now,, "I'd rather see a qualified
person trying to do the best they
can with an under-funded shelter
than an unqualified person."
He said the vets have agreed
to help out with the licensing
process pet tags generate funds"
but have not been enforced by the
county in the past and with spay-
ing and neutering animals.
"I think the veterinarians final-
ly have some hope. I think now we
are energized," said O'Brien.
An outspoken critic of the coun-
ty's handling of Animal Control in
the past, he said he personally com-
mends the commission for "finally
stepping up to the plate."
. "I think this could be the dawn
of a new era I've been waiting 21
years for it."

SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
A review of Nassau County
Animal Control by the Nassau
Humane Society suggests an
assessment fee of $25 per house-
hold could generate $937,500 per
year for the facility.
The audit late last month also
concludes the shelter needs
$300,000 in capital improvements
such as new windows, air condi-
tioning, proper quarantine areas,
fencing and 60 dog kennels with
outside access, among other items.
'The county could help cover
that cost by adding two more
Animal Control officers, which
would generate $500,000 or more
each year through fines for ordi-
nance violations and enforced pet
licensing, the report states.
Together, the tax levy, fines and
fees could generate $1.4 million,
according to the Humane Society.
The improvements are labeled
an "immediate fix solution to the
critical facility issues. Long range
a new building is the permanent
solution."
*The report paints a grim pic-
ture of life especially for dogs -
at the shelter as it is now. It noted
that kennels are overcrowded, with
dogs defecating and, ttalp-.iit.
through their own waste, and that
understaffing prevents a proper
exercise routine for the animals.
'TheyTRYto letthe dogs outto
exercise for 20 minutes each day.
They need to have two outside run
times a day along with occasional
walks on a leash," the report states.
'The teenage dogs and puppies
are kept in very small cages with
no-room to move around. This is
terrible since they are kept in them
all day." The report also notes that
dogs are fed once a day, when it
should be twice, and that water
bowls are not cage-mounted but
on the floor and tip over all the
time.
Veterinarian Dr. Kim Carter out-
lined immediate steps to clean and
disinfect the shelter as well as
improve the flow of animals
through the facility, with proper
intake and quarantine areas to
ensure disease is contained.
'What I saw today, there was


PAY Continued from 1A
hard to calculate the needs at the
facility.
For that he has reached out to
animal control expert David Flagler
of Jacksonville, who will become
the shelter director if Seagraves
takes over, as well as local animal
advocate Mark Childs, Lynda
Mixson of RAIN and Mimi Vitale
of Northeast Florida Rescue. The
latter three attended Wednesday's
meeting along with veterinarian Dr.
Jim O'Brien.
Further complicating the budg-
et issue is a historically small rev-
enue stream to support Animal
Control functions. The target is
$72,000 for the current fiscal year,
and Sealover said, "My opinion is we
probably won't even come that
close."'
"It's not a dog or a cat speed
trap," he told Seagraves.
Instead, the majority of revenue
is generated through interlocal
agreements with municipalities
such as Callahan and Hilliard, fol-
lowed by fines and tag fees. But the
Animal Control ordinances need to
be overhauled and then enforced
in order to raise more money.
Even then, "I would be hard-
pressed to believe (Animal Control)
would be self-sufficient," said
Sealover.
"It's a sad circumstance and ani-
mals don't have a voice. We are the
voice ... we are responsible and that
is our job," said Seagraves.
"We do want closure on this,"
said Sealover.
"I want to work with you," said
Seagraves.
'To use that clich,` We'll roll up


no segregation, no sensible plan
that protects the healthy animal
population from the sick animals,"
she wrote. She stressed the need
for staff seminars on everything
from disease prevention and han-
dling aggressive animals to couwn
ty ordinances.
'The structure of the facility is
in disrepair. This makes it impos-
sible to keep clean. Cracks need to
be caulked, rotten wood replaced,
and a good sealant (two coats)
needs to be applied and then a coat
of very high grade exterior paint
(two coats) would complete the
barrier needed to ensure adequate
disinfection," Carter wrote.
While the cattery is in better
shape, it needs many more per-
manent cages and the intake area
is so close to where puppies are
kept that "the cats are scared to
death."
The Humane Society also noted
problems with staffing and rec-
ommends hiring a second recep-
tionist to help answer calls as well
as a veterinary technician to dis-
pense medicines and help defray
vet bills. The report calls for more
filing cabinets, new computer hard-
ware, a new printer and more
heaters for the dogs in winter.
County Coordinator Ed
SealQyet. sotikc Frki,ay the county,,:
has already addressed some
staffing issues, hiring an Animal
Control officer to bring the com-
plement to two and two shelter
techs, raising the number to six.
The Humane Society suggests at
least two more officers are needed
to adequately cover the county.
The report noted, "(Interim)
Director Rhett Holden-Dodge ...
does an admirable job in a very
taxing position for a minimum
wage." Holden-Dodge offered his
services for $1,000 a month as a
stop-gap measure for the county
when it removed director Brenda
Rothwell from the position in
October.
The report also recognized the
contributions of volunteers, par-
ticularly with remote adoptions at
local pet supply stores and with
setting up an Excel computer pro-
gram to better record animal
intake information and complaints.
But it calls on the county to do


our sleeves and see what we can
do,'" said Sealover.

VIEWPOINT/MAYOR BILL LEEPEI


Working


Editor's note: This is an excerpt
of Mayor Bill Leeper's statement
to the city commission Tuesday
announcing his decision not to
seek reelection.
It has been an honor to serve
on the commission and I have
certainly been blessed to rep-
resent my hometown as the
mayor for the past two years, as it
has been a very rewarding experi-
ence. In the past three years that
I have been on the commission,
contrary to what some may
believe, many things have been
accomplished; however, we all
know there is still much more to
be done.
To mention just a few of those
accomplishments over the past
three years; we have kept ad val-
orem taxes down to the rollback .
rate each of the last three years,
for a tax savings of 33 percent for
our residents, which also pre-
vented substantial cuts in the
city's budget due to the recent
Florida Legislature's action.
We've significantly reduced taxes
for historical properties and bed
and breakfast homes, waived
fees for affordable housing proj-
ects, started a Community
Development Block Grant proj-
ect to improve the Southside
neighborhood area; started mari-
na improvements like dredging,

Leeper to decide about
a welcome cen-
ter and river-
front park area. Even though the
process has been aggravating,
moving a lot slower, and costing
a lot more than I'd hoped it
would, at least some progress
there has been made as we con-
tinue to redevelop and revitalize
the downtown waterfront.
We have renourished our
beaches to protect homes along
the ocean as well as keep our
beaches accessible to our resi-
dents and tourists who visit here.
This included funding two criti-
cal beach restoration projects
without a tax increase or special
assessment against the property
owners.
We have built a skate park
and the water slide has been
approved and, combined with the
Putt-Putt and basketball and
roller hockey court, this will
make the Main Beach an area
where kids can hang outagain.


Although some people may be glad that I will be
leaving, I hope I have made some new friends
along the way and thank all of those who have
encouraged and supported me during and
since the last election.


We are working on completing ai
dog park that will allow dog own-
ers it place to take their clogs off
leash for exercise and fun. We
have passed new land develop-
ment codes that were rewritten
to be compatible with the
Comprehensive Plan and also
strengthened the protection of
wetlands. We are working on
traffic concurrency issues with
the county; developed an airport
commerce park and building
new hangars at the airport.
We have approved a new teen
center at the Atlantic Recreation
Center as well as a new aquatics
multipurpose building and pro-
vided more opportunity for kids
with programs for all ages. We
have renovated the Elm Street
pool and provided some new
water toys Ifor children to enjoy,
as well as install a new kitchen
there. We have increased fund-
ing to complete more street
resurfacing projects as well as
major sewer rehabilitation and
working on storm water manage-
ment. We have reduced the fran-
chise fee related to electricity to
revenue neutral. We have
increased code enforcement and
passed new sign codes. We have
also created Fernandina Beach's
Vision 2020, which is an updated
continuation of Vision 2000 and
completed an entire charter
review.
Of course, the past three
years have not been without
some failures and trying times.

ney. The airport lawsuit, which
began before I came on the com-
mission, is still ongoing, even
though we have tried several
times to settle it; I am hopeful
that the case will be settled with-
in the next few months: We've
had to deal with dying trees and
falling walls within the Egans
Creek Greenway, which (the
Florida Department of
Transportation) admitted it was
responsible for and is now trying
to remedy, but it will certainly
take years to complete. We took
on the complicated issues of
duplexes and grandfathering lots
of record, group homes, condo-
tels, floor area ratios, Crane
Island, CRAs, police department
turmoil, airport rules and regula-
tions, musical chairs, hardiboard,
and homelessness. We also tack-
led the strange goo that was ooz-
ing up beneath the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center audi-
torium floor.
I brought out that there was
mismanagement and misappro-
priation of funds at the golf
course; the bed tax was not
being utilized to its full potential
for public facilities; there was lax


oversight of the Greenway bond
project, which led to overspend-
ing on certain projects, as well as
showing where an engineering
firm was overcharging the city
on some projects that they had
oversight on.
I developed the "Mayor for a
Day" program in the schools to
get more young people involved
in local government and give
them a voice; tried to develop
more harmony between the city
and county commission; devel-
oped an underground utilities
task force; and brought out the
fact that the city needed a com-
munity development director to
cut down on complaints within
the planning and building depart-
ments and a full-time airport
manager to oversee projects out
there on a full-time basis, not
part-time as it was before.
I'm sure I have failed to men-
tion a few things, but as you can
see the commission has not just
been sitting on their hands down
here. This is a job where you cer-
tainly can't please everyone.
Some of our decisions have been
very difficult to make and there
will be many more difficult deci-


sions that will have to be made in
the future, especially now that
the tax reduction amendment
has passed, which will make gov-.
ernment focus on what is needed
and not what it wants.
I won't deny that I have been
very frustrated at times about
some issues that we have had to
deal with and the information or
sometimes lack of information
that we receive. I am certainly
not one who can sit here and
approve everything that is
brought before the commission,
because I believe you need to
question why we do things some-
times; after all, it's the taxpayer's
money we are spending.
Although some people may be
glad that I will be leaving, I hope
I have made some new friends
along the way and thank all of
those who have encouraged and
supported me during and since
the last election. I have tried to
be a good representative of the
city and conduct myself in a pro-
fessional manner and will always
treasure this experience. I also
want to thank the commission-
ers, charter employees and city
staff members that I have had
the pleasure to work with during
my tenure;
There is still much to be done
to make Fernandina Beach a bet-,
ter place to live, work and play,
and until my term is completed, I
will continue to work toward that
goal.
Bill Leeper has been a city
commissioner since 2005, and
mayor for the past two years.

Underage drinking

still a problem
T he local substance abuse coalition,
Nassau Alcohol, Crime and Drug
Abatement Coalition, is a partnership of
local agencies and organizations created
to support and encourage drug-free lifestyles for
the youth of Nassau County.
The partners include law enforcement, city gov-
ernment and county government as well as faith-
based, human service, educational and community-
based organizations.
Data shows underage drinking is a problem in
Nassau County. Since the year 2000, alcohol use
within the past 30 days among middle school and
high school students in Nassau County has
remained consistent or higher than the state aver-
age, according to the Florida Youth Substance Abuse
Survey. In addition, this survey shows that binge
drinking (the consumption of five or more drinks in
a row within the last two weeks) among Nassau
County middle school and high school students has
been higher than the state average since 2000.
There is much the community can do to help,
such as establishing clear expectations about drugs
within the family, making youth aware of the con-
sequences of negative behaviors and working with
law enforcement in reporting drug- and alcohol-
related activities.
We abo Ci6courageybu to attend NACDAC meet-
i :, 'which are held the third Tuesday of every
month at 3:30 p.m. at the Yulee County Building at
86026 Pages Dairy Road.
We encourage people from the community to
learn more about NACDAC by visiting www.nac
dac.org, e-mailing info@nacdac.org or calling Jean
Bardes at 753-2551.
It's important for our community to know more
about the underage drinking problem in our coun-
ty, as awareness can help create the change that is
necessary to reduce alcohol and other drug use
within Nassau County.
Susan Woodford, NACDAC chair, and her asso-
ciates are working hard to bring this difficult prob-
lem into focus. For our children's sake, please help
them do so.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Readingdub
Since the "Sheriff's Reading Club" backpacks
have been distributed through the Nassau County
Public Library branches on Jan. 15,1 I am pleased to
report that I have more than 100 little Reading
Deputies.
The "Reading Club" backpacks are filled with
reading and activity books, a blanket, toothbrush,
and a Pound Puppy as a "reading buddy," as well as
child safety and child abuse prevention messages for
parents.
I wanted to thank our partners Family Support
Services of North Florida Chief Executive Officer
Jim Adams for the Reading Club idea and for pur-
chasing the backpacks; Mike Bowling of Mike
Bowling Enterprises; the Nassau County Public
Librarian Dawn Bostwick and her many volunteers,
as well as the Nassau County Commission who con-
tributed $1,600 to the project.
Dawn Bostwick of the Nassau County Libraries,
reports that parents are bringing not only their four-
or five-year-olds to the library to pick up a backpack,
they are signing all their children up for library
cards.
This is a win-win project for everyone in Nassau
County and hopefully, children will learn to love
reading. Not only will that help them in school, but
it will help' carry their imaginations around the
world of ideas.

Our next president's commitment to stop-
ping the spread of HIV/AIDS must be
unequivocal. It is incumbent upon the
black community, the segment of society
suffering the most from this virus, to elect the can-
didate whose record demonstrates that commit-
ment.
Blacks represent over half of the epidemic today,
and racial disparities are widening among both
those newly infected and those who die from
HIV/AIDS. This is undoubtedly a black concern.
These are the questions you need to ask your
candidate:
1. Do you have a national strategy? Will you sup-
port policies that reduce black infections? Will you
support community-based HIV testing? Will you
guarantee access to adequate treatment? How will
you stop the stigma?
The United States has a wise policy when it
comes to supporting poor countries' AIDS pro-
grams: Before getting foreign aid, they.must first
have a national strategy for directing their
resources. Yet 26 years into our own epidemic, we
still don't have our own overarching strategy for
ending it. Little wonder, then, that we still log an
estimated 40,000 new infections each year (67 per-
cent of the new cases among women are black).
In 2004, Kaiser Family Foundation surveyed 18-
to 24-year-old African Americans who had been


What should black voters ask of the
presidential candidates?

exposed to HIV-prevention messages through a
Kaiser/Viacom campaign targeting black media;
more than half said they talked to their sex partners
about safety as a result of what they saw. Any viable
HIV prevention campaign directed at black people
must be funneled through our community's trusted
voices from media and pulpits to celebrities and
community organizers. (43 percent of the new cases
among men are black.)
We must ask candidates if they will devote sub-
stantial resources to HIV testing campaigns that are,
organized by and rooted inside our own community,
and that connect people to appropriate care. Why
does the black community need a president who
has a plan to attack this virus wiping out our com-
munity? Because we suffer the highest percentage
of new infections. In 2005, almost three quarters of
HIV/AIDS diagnoses were for male adolescents and
adults. In 2005, blacks (including African
Americans), who make up approximately 13 percent
of the US population, accounted for almost half of
the estimated number of HIV/AIDS cases diag-

Proving not only that evolution exists, but that it
even works in reverse, our school officials swam
back to the shallow, stagnant end of the gene pool
when they essentially endorsed good preaching
over good teaching. Superintendent John Ruis pre-
sented a resolution for the board's approval to tell
state education officials to revise the Sunshine State
Standards for science "so that evolution is not pre-

The problem is poised to get worse: AIDS serv-
ice providers across the country are no longer able
to sustain counseling services, nutrition programs,
drug recovery programs and the host of other sup-
port structures that make it possible for people to
succeed in HIV treatment.
The president occupies a powerful pulpit for set-
ting the national tone on a range of issues and ideas.
We must ask candidates whether they will direct
faith-based funding to black churches that are will-
ing to lead the anti-stigma campaign. Any national
effort to end AIDS must include and support their
efforts.
Where do the candidates stand Democrats and
Republicans -when it comes to the African
American population? The question remains- what
do you require of your candidate for your vote when
your fellow brothers and sisters sit silently unaware
of their own status? How do you stand and what do
you stand for? In deciding which campaign and what
party to throw our individual and collective weight
behind, we must consider everything from criminal
justice to economic policy to health care access. But
it is incumbent upon us to consider where candi-
dates stand on HIV/AIDS.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Religion in the schools
The Nassau County School Board believes evolu-
tion is "not a fact" (Jan. 30)? Yet any of us who got a
fresh flu shot this year acted on the fact that viruses
evolve; those of us still standing on the planet know the
theory of gravity works.
The School Board adopted Superintendent John
Ruis' resolution that evolution not be "... presented at
the exclusion of other theories of origin of life." I'm
stunned because I am unaware of another theory'of the
origin of life, that is, another testable explanation.
Religious beliefs about the origin of life are faith-based
and we cannot, unfortunately, revisit the Garden of
Eden to test them out.
We found a helpful tutorial in the free download of
"Science, Evolution and Creationism" published this
January by the national Academy of Sciences and the
Institute of Medicine. Go to their website www.nation
alacademies.org/evolution/.
This book is written by a group of experts assem-
bled by the academies to consider how life evolved on
Earth and to "... explain the fundamental methods of sci-
ence, document the overwhelming evidence in support
of biological evolution and evaluate the alternative per-
spectives offered by advocates of various kinds of cre-
ationism, including 'intelligent design."'
These experts say, "... Mindful of school board bat-
tles and recent court decisions, "Science Evolution
and Creationism" shows that science and religion
should be viewed as different ways of understanding
the world rather than as frameworks that are in conflict
with each other ... (They) strongly maintain that only
scientifically based explanations for life should be
included in public school science class."
The principle is called separation of church and
state. Public tax dollars should not support teaching a
religion in our schools, whether Christian, Muslim,
Hindu or Jewish.

School Board will ask the state education officials to

In regard to the traffic problem on A1A and letters
pointing out the problem, I would suggest that the haz-


ardous conditions in both directions can be ameliorated
substantially in the short term and prior to a long-
term solution by doing the following:
(1) Aggressive enforcement of traffic laws by the
Nassau County Sheriff;
(2) Restrict all trucks to the right lane and impose
a 50 mph limit on all timber trucks;
(3) Restrict the times of travel for timber
trucks to off-peak hours. Peak hours being defined
as 6:30-9 a.m., 3-4 p.m. (school buses) and 4:30-

Rauls, was unaware of an evening of ele-
gance being given for her 60th birthday.
She arrived to a celebration of what she
thought was for Charles Albert. Being
dressed special for this after-five event in her
red two-piece outfit, with shoes, bag and
accessories matching, the secret was out as
she stepped on the carpet. The crowd gave a
standing ovation, yelling, "Surprise!" and
surprised she was.
The celebration of life and lots of love
was ever-present. Family, friends, class-
mates, teachers, along with their men of
God, pastors Rev. D.K. Bolden and Rev. A
Perkins, along with their wives, giving their
blessings for this wonderful occasion.
Giving thanks to God, Lillie V. Rauls and

pGrandmother's Prayers
Night aft er night my grand-
Somother would lovingly piece
together a quilt that told a story
had w a she loved to tell. Her delicate
hands sewing, she told me of
a time of soda fountains,
S full service stations,
long Sunday dinners, and
nighttime talks on the porch.
After each designed square
of a lifetime event were a pair
of hands. She said it made
the quilt stronger. Now at 55
S years old, I understand what
Ithe hands truly represent.
Each pair of hands stood for the prayer my grandmother
invested into our family. It is true the quilt is strong and
beautiful, but the life that lived the story is the most
precious part that prayer affects. My grandmother had a
lifetime of love, understanding and patience through a
constant attitude of prayer. She passed away recently,
and I treasure the quilt that tells my family history of
hard work and prayer. I can't help but smile to see her last
entry...a small girl my daughter kneeled in prayer.

my sister and I did and, with a little per-
suasion, he was willing to come.
As we made our way slowly down the
zigzagging aisles, I couldn't help but
notice all the stuff placed along the way
to keep us entertained while we waited.

Time is right to refinance


Economic cycles ebb and
flow. When one area is slump-
ing, it can mean that there's
opportunity somewhere else.
For example, some financial
markets have deteriorated to
the point where businesses and
households are curtailing
spending
But that pain could be your
gain in the form of a refi-
nanced mortgage.
Signals of recession spurred
the Federal
Reserve to
Scut short-
ESTterm inter-
est rates -
creating a
potential
boon for
S sonicme
: homeown-
ers interest-
ed in refi-
Charles nancing
Kovaleski their mort-
-..--.. gages.
Since fall,
REAL mortgage
ESTATE interest
rates have
dropped as much as 1.5 percent-
age points.
Mortgage interest rates don't
always decline when the Fed
cuts short-term interest rates,
the one banks charge when
they lend money on'a short-
term basis to one another.
However, recent Fed cuts -
one of three-quarters of a point
on Jan. 22 followed by one of
half a point on Jan. 30- made
lenders' phones ring like crazy.
The number of refinancing
applications has spiked 92 per-
cent since November, according
to thie Mortgage Bankers
Association.
Anyone who has bought a
home in the last three years
light benefit from refinanc-
in g.
Fixed rates for 30-year mort-
gages have been dropping since
the holidays not to all-time
lows but still to historically
attractive levels.
Pay particular attention if
you have an adjustable rate
that's on the verge of resetting.
Now may be the time to convert
it to a'fixed-rate loan, which may
provide more comfort and
peace of mind during an unset-
tled economic period.
Those carrying two loans,
so-called 80-20 loans or interest-
only loans also stand to benefit,


Recent Fed cuts one of three-quarters of a

has spiked 92 percent since November, accord-
ing to the Mortgage Bankers Association.


even if their new rate drops by
as little as one-quarter of a per-
centage point.
Refinancing, though, might
not be for everyone.
If you have a subprime
loan, considered a riskier propo-
sition for brokers, you may
find it difficult to get a modifica-
tion. Still, it costs nothing to
ask.
Also, those planning to move
or sell in the next three to four
years may not reap a cost bene-
fit by refinancing, so do the
math calculating closing costs
as well as how long it would
take to break even. For
instance, it might cost $4,000 to
refinance a $250,000 mortgage.
If your monthly payments ,
dropped by $80 with your new
rate, it would take more than
four years to break even.
Bankrate.com has a refinance
calculator that helps you com-
pute whether the transaction
works in your favor.
Once you determine that you
need to get on the road to refi-
nancing, here are some guide-
posts to help you on your jour-
ney.
Know your current mort-
gage: What are the fees and
penalties and are any trig-
gered by paying off the loan
early? If you have an adjust-
able rate mortgage (ARM),
how often will it adjust and
when will it adjust? These are
some factors to review when
weighing when a refinance is
viable. Consult your paper
work, lender or real estate
attorney to understand your
terms.
Check your credit: Review
your credit score and do what
you can get to get your credit
score as high as possible.
During the subprime fiasco of
last year, it was common for
institutions to make loans to
people who had -i ,.... i'the e
low 600s. Those days are gone.
Mortgage brokers report that
scores need to be near 680,


maybe even as high as 720, for a
loan to wvork. If you need to
boost your score, don't accept
zero-down financing on con-
sumer goods. And, of course,
pay your bills on time.
Shop, shop, shop: Your
options can very from broker to
broker, so get online and see
what's available. Request all
information all costs and fees
- in writing.
Ask questions if you don't
understand. When you've found
the rate you want, ask for a for-
mal lock-in letter that outlines
all the terms.before you get to
closing.
Prepare documents: Gone
are the days of no-documenta-
tion loans. Your income and the
amount of cash you have in the
bank are among the items you'll
be asked to document. Often
you'll be asked for two years
worth of tax returns and three
months of pay stubs-
No one knows how far mort-
gage rates will fall, so don't try
and time the market. Be calm
and rational as you analyze your
situation. Once you've crunched
your numbers and reviewed
your terms, lock in your rate so
you don't sweat every market
movement.
If you're lucky, when there's
an ebb, you can go with the
flow.

Nail gun


injuries


common

A few weeks ago, I
was called to the
emergency room to
evaluate a gentle-
man who had been shot in
the arm by a nail gun. The
nail had penetrated through
the outer aspect of his elbow,
through the muscle and into
the bone, which fractured
about the embedded nail.
The man was in pain, as you
would expect, but he was
also unable to move his arm
due to the bony penetration.
He was taken to surgery,
where.the nail was removed,
the path of penetration was
surgically cleaned and he
was casted for his fracture.
These types of things hap-
pen all the time. I previously
noted an amazing story about
a guy who shot himself in the
head with a nail gun, some-
how didn't know he had done
it and eventually w-ent to his
dentist for what he thought
was an infected tooth. An X-
ray showed the nail embed-
ded into his skull, partially
penetrating his brain..He was
taken to the hospital, where
he underwent emergency
removal. He has not suffered
any permanent damage.
Although the building
boom has slowed, nail gun
injuries continue to be com-
monly seen. With discharged
nails traveling at speeds up to
1,400 feet per second, nail
gun injuries most commonly
affect the non-dominant hand
and the feet
I once had a guy who
came in to the ER after he
had been shot in the hand
and he was still attached to
the 2x4 plank that he had
been leaning on when the
nail gun went off.
Accident victims common-
ly present to the emergency
room, X-rays are used to
determine the path of pene-
tration and then usually the
nail can be removed there.
The traumatic wound is
cleaned and the patient is
sent home on a course of oral
antibiotics. With proper treat-
ment infections are not com-
mon.
When easy removal in the
emergency room is not possi-
ble or the nail has penetrated
the bone or a joint, the
patient will be taken to the
operating room for further
treatment.
Another interesting case
involved a man who shot
himself in the outer aspect of
his knee. The nail penetrated
his thigh bone and crossed
the knee joint into his shin
(the tibia). Then he fell and
bent the nail in the center of
his knee joint. As you can
imagine,'he presented to the
ER with his knee locked into
position. He too was taken to
the operating room, where
the nail was carefully
removed, and he fully recov-
ered from his injury.
Nail guns are equipped
with safety devices that
require the gun be pressed
firmly against the surface to
be nailed, thereby preventing
the possibility that the gun be
accidentally fired, sending
the nail soaring through the
air; However, operators often
remove this safety device in
order to speed up the
process of covering the area
to be secured more rapidly.
Nail guns account for
approximately 15 percent of
carpenter-related injuries.
Used most commonly by pro-
fessionals, nail guns intended
for home use can now be
found on the market. I would
therefore expect the number
of injuries to go up even
more.
This column is written to
discuss issues regarding
sports, medicine and safety. It'
is not intended to serve as a


replacement for treatment by

the prevention, recognition
and care of injuries and ill-
ness. Specific concerns should

kids participating too," Dunham
said. Fun runs for children and a

morning's activities.
In the 5K (3.1-mile) run, 51-
year-old Bill Beaumont of Yulee

they're weighing to '20
pounds. Fish the deep sides of
docks with fresh shrimp on the
bottom during the falling tide.
The tip of the St. Marys south

the submerged jetty rocks with
fresh local shrimp, dead on the
bottom.
Robert Walker continues to
make excellent catches of black
drum and redfish while fishing
aboard his fishing boat, the
"Music Man." Walker prefers the
very tip. of the St. Marys south
jetty rocks during the flooding

It's not unusual to catch black
drum during the winter fishing

Hornets top Flashes 1-0


in Baker tournament


With one out and the bses
loaded in the top of the seventh
inning, sophomore Buck Marell
drove in freshman Andrew Minor
for the winning run on a fielder's
choice Tuesday to lift the Yulee
Hornets over the Hilliard Flashes
1-0 in a preseason baseball tour-
nament at Baker County.
Marell and senior Josh
McKendree combined for a one-
hit shutout, giving up just one
walk and striking out 11 on the
night.
Yulee had seven hits and left
four men on base. Junior Josh
Cassidy and Andrew Minor had
two hits each with Cassidy hit-
ting a triple and Minor hitting a
double. Other hitters included
seniors Brock Dickinson,. Josh
Kubala and Marquez Davidson.
"I was proud of the overall
effort on the night," said Will
Minor, head, baseball coach at
Yulee High School. "Our pitchers
did a great job of throwing strikes
and our defense made no errors.
"Our hitting is much improved
from last year, so hopefully we
will continue to take good swings
and make good solid contact at
the plate."
Yulee wrapped up preseason
play Thursday against host Baker
County. The regular season opens
at home Tuesday with Orange
Park.
The Hornets went 14-12 last
season.
"We are in an extremely tough
eight-team district with Bolles,
Episcopal, Fernandina, West N.as-
sau, Trinity Christian, Bishop
Snyder and Baldwin," Coach
Minor said. "Last season we fin-
ished fifth in the district in the
regular season.
"This season we hope to finish
at least in the top four."
Key returners for the Hornets
include McKendree, senior pitch-


HOOPS Continued from 13A
"As for the season, it was like
a roller coaster ride. We started
out the first half of the season 7-
6 overall with 5-1 district record,
contending for'first place. Ever
since then, we've been on a six-
game losing streak. When it rains
it pours.
"Luckily, because of our early
season success, our district
record sustained the losing
streak, allowing us to still finish in
the top half of the district (with a


er (7-1 record, 2.36 ERA, 55 strike-
outts); Dickinson, senior pitcher
(3.78 ERA, 55 Ks); senior center
fielder Cory Reynolds (.333 bat-
ting average, 22 runs scored, 12
stolen bases, no errors in CF);
senior catcher Josh Oliver (.325
batting average, five doubles, 11
RBIs); junior second baseman
Cassidy (16 hits, 16 runs, 12
RBIs); and sophomore pitcher
Marell (2-1 record with one save,
3.13 ERA, 31 Ks).
"Our most promising young
newcomers, who will both start on
varsity, are sophomore shortstop
Travis Higgs and freshman utili-
ty player Andrew Minor," Coach
Minor said. "We have most of our
starting pitching back from last
season. I think we have made
great strides from last year in the
offensive areas, but only time will
tell if we can translate our better
hitting and baserunning into wins
- especially with the tougher
schedule that I put together for
this year.
"Some of the holes from last
year's team have been filled with
young players, which will hope-
fully benefit us now as well as in
the future.
"From the beginning of our
first season last year, in terms of
the overall state of the baseball
program, I am very pleased with
the progress we have made. We
were able to keep 35 players this
year between junior varsity and
varsity, compared to 24 last sea-
son. Of those 35 players we select-
ed, 22 are freshman and soph-
mores. If we can continue to
develop these players, the future
of Yulee baseball is very bright."
The Fernandina Beach High
School baseball team played in a
preseason tournament at Sandal-
wood Tuesday and Thursday. The
Pirates host Terry Parker Tues-
day at 6 p.m. to open the season.


5-3 record) at fourth place. For
that, I'm proud because it was an
improvement from our fifth-place
finish last year.
"Overall there was growth and
development on and off the floor.
Hopefully year three will be the
turning point and with seven
returning players the upside is
pretty good for this group."
The FBHS Lady Pirates trav-
eled to Tallahassee Thursday to
take on the Florida High
Seminoles in the first round of
the state playoffs.

40 and over), overall winners in
the 5K were two Fernandina Beach
runners, Alicia Parker, 47, in 22:59,
and Bill Murto, 42; in 18:57. In the
"grandmasters" category, 50 and
over, the overall winners were
Mary Jean Last, 57, of Fernandina
Beach in 27:03, and Dave Hoock,
51, of Ponte Vedra Beach in 20:16.
Among the "senior grandmasters,"
age 60 and over, finishing first over-
all were Ann and Richard Molloy of
Chelmsford, Mass.; she, 62, in
34:44, and he, 66, in 22:12.
In the 10K, first overall among
the masters runners were Dawn
McGee, 42, of Atlantic Beach in
45:07 and Shane Still,. 41, of Yulee
in 40:16. .
First overall among the grand-
masters were Elfrieda Wyner, 65, of
St. Augustine in 46:44 and Bruce
Holmes, 60, of Jacksonville in
43:57.
Among the senior grandmas-
ters, first overall were Sue Branley,
61, of Jacksonville Beach in 50:27
and Herb Taskett, 60, of
Jacksonville in 45:02.
Wyner, an elite masters runner,
was ranked third nationally in her
age group for 2007 by Running
Times magazine.
10K runners who thought the
course seemed a bit longer than
usual were correct. A problem with
a directional sign as runners exit-
ed Lighthouse Circle sent almost
all of them off the measured course
for 0.289 mile (0.46K), adding that
distance to their total run.
By using runners' pace per
mile, it's possible to estimate what
their times would have been at a
true 10K distance. Instructions on
how to do that and a program that
will do it automatically are avail-
able at www.ameliaislandrun
ners.com, along with complete
results from the 5K and 10K.
Said an optimistic Randy Arend
of Orange Park, who finished sec-
ond in his 10K age group, "Almost
everyone who ran the race had a
PR (personal record) albeit at
the not-so-common race distance of
10.46K"
Proceeds from the event will
benefit youth running in North
Florida, including Girls on the Run
and a new running scholarship pro-
gram for Nassau County high
school seniors by Amelia Island
Runners, the local running club
that presented the Pirates on the
Run.
Brenner thanked race organiz-
ers and volunteers for coming out
and cheering the runners on.
"Everyone who ran was so
friendly," he said. "The running
community wherever you go is
always so friendly. That's part of
the fun of being a runner.. ; .i
"We share something really pro-
found," he said. "We all love to
run."

February 2008, WJCT will broadcast a lineup of new
and encore presentations honoring and exploring
African-American history.,
Programs premiering in Black History Month
include African-American Lives 2, in which Dr.
Henry Louis Gates, Jr., reveals the triumphs and
tragedies within the family histories of an all-new
group of remarkable participants. The Clinton 12
and Come Walk in My Shoes revisit the American

Conie Walk in My Shoes
provides a fresh, first-person per-
spective on the nonviolent
protests that challenged segrega-
tion laws in the South and
prompted the passage of the
Voting Rights Act in 1965. During
the film, Congressman John
Lewis (D-Ga.) leads colleagues
from the U.S. House of
Representatives and Senate, reli-
gious leaders and others on an
emotional pilgrimage to the
"sacred sites" of the civil rights
movement. The journey begins
in Montgomery, Ala., where the
then-18-y6ar-old college student
first met Martin Luther King Jr.
and ends on the Edmund Pettus
Bridge in Selma, where'an angry
mob brutally beat the future con-
gressman while leading a peace-
ful march. (Mon., Feb. 18 at 11
p.m.)
Banished. This
Independent Lens film tells the
story of three counties that force-

The Better Hour: The
Legacy of William Wilber-
force, dramatizes the life of
social reformer William Wilber-
force, a leader in the British abo-
litionist movement of the early

words, the words of his contem-
poraries and interviews with
scholars paint a portrait of the
Minister of Parliament a man of
privilege, social position and
wealth whose efforts help free
all of the slaves in the British
Empire. (Feb. 25 at 11 p.m.)
