The fishing's still good on
Amelia Island if you don't
mind construction equip-
ment and workers for a
backdrop. The half-mile-
long fishing pier at Fort
Clinch State Park, above,
is undergoing exteiisive
renovations and will be
closed to the public
through the fall. Sand will
be brought from offshore,

reconstruction of the
beach from the state park
line south to Seaside Park
near Sadler Road.
Council on Aging may move

The vacant 14th Street County
Annex Building may be demolished in
order to make way for new quarters
for the Nassau County Council on
Aging, currently located at 1367 South
18th St, across from the hospital.
City and county commissioners
may act together to accomplish that.

issue of tearing down the old building.
... I was just wanting to ask if the city

that building down if we decide to go,
in that direction."
City officials were generally sup-

option. The problem, however, is fund-

Transportation has no immediate
plans to expand the road's capacity -
a situation Seaman said the commis-

"There are three things we need,
and that's money, money and more

do as a group is to get DOT to move

Fernandina Beach residents and
businesses will pay more for trash pick-
up beginning July 1.
City commissioners approved a new
five-year contract for Advanced
Disposal Services-Stateline at their
Tuesday meeting. It increases month-
ly garbage rates for most residential
customers by 20 percent and for most
commercial customers by 3 percent.
The residential rate will go up from
$14.95 to $18.61 a month. There will no
longer be an additional charge for
excessive yard waste.
A commercial rate for a standard

example, will go from $85.56 to $87.25
Commissioner Ron Sapp. voted
against the contract, saying he was
concerned about the hike "coming at
a time when we're seeing Florida
Public Utilities come forward with
another rate increase."
"Look at gas prices going up for all
our citizens," he added. "Look at what
it costs to buy food; that's gone up
"For the average citizen," he went
on, "they're going to look at this and
say that's an exorbitant increase ... I
think it's a little excessive."
More than half the residential
increase comes from a fuel-cost adjust-

authorize the city manager to look into

he agreed with Walker that the com-

City finance office
to Peck Center?
The city finance depart-
ment may move from its build-
ing at Fifth and Lime streets,
where it shares space with the
utility department, to new
offices in the Peck Recreation
Center on South 10th Street.
According to a memo from
City Manager Michael
Czymbor's office, the utility
department would stay at the
current location, with some
improvements to its quarters.
According to Czymbor, the
finance and utility depart-
ments were moved from City
Hall to the facility on Fifth
Street in 2003. The new loca-
tion was intended to be only
temporary, and has become
"woefully inadequate" to
house the two departments.
City commissioners in
February approved expansion
of the existing building that
houses both departments,
with an addition of 2,000
square feet. Several commis-
sioners at that meeting object-
ed to the $300,000 that was
budgeted for the expansion,
and suggested that architec-

costs to operate its trucks.
According to Advanced
Disposal representative Dave
Shepler, fuel is a major por-
tion of the company's oper-
ating costs, and the U.S.
Department of Energy rec-
ommends an 18 percent sur-
charge. Advanced Disposal,
he said, has a fuel surcharge
of only 12 to 15 percent of
Shepler also pointed out
that the twice-weekly rate for
Fernandina Beach is what
the company would normal-

Both commissioners and
residents at the meeting

about what type, of recy-

up, and what to do with haz-

does not deal with hazardous
waste, as that is the respon-

Advanced Disposal is a
Jacksonville company that is
allied with Callahan-based
Stateline, which received the
city contract after Waste
Management Inc. pulled out.
The city previously operat-
ed the sanitation department
until a decision was made
five years ago to privatize the
service. Waste Management
won the contract in open bid-
,ding at that time. Bids were
not solicited for the contract
renewal thi s year.
CITY Continued from 1A
ment for possible purchase of
the post office building on
Centre Street. Under one plan,
the post office would continue to
operate in the building, which
the city would renovate for a
new city hall and maintain.
Sapp cited potential prob-
lems with financing the project
and recommended waiting at
least two or three years before
any capital expenditure plan is
undertaken by the city. He sug-
gested, rather than buying the
church, replacing the auditori-
um at Atlantic Avenue Recre-
ation Center with a new civic
center. City Hall, he said, should
remain where it is, with a pos-
sible annex built across Second
Street if needed.
Commissioner Susan Steger
said she would like to "challenge
people who have other ideas for
the post office (besides for a city
hall). Let's crunch the num-
bers," she said. "Can we afford
to see (the post office) crum-
bling away? There are a lot of
questions we have to ask.... We

said Childers, referring to the

going to be costly." He said the
city should do an online citizen
survey to find out how residents
feel about the project.

involved," he said. "A general

"There was plenty of blue-
berries, plenty of plants, plenty
of food and a nice atmosphere,"
said Northeast Florida Fair
Association President Donnie
Jarrett on Saturday, near the
end of the 7th Annual Northeast
Florida Fair Association
Blueberry Festival held at the
fairgrounds north of Callahan.
.He said a lot of people were
there to attend all the addition-
al events, some new this year,
such as the rodeo both
evenings, the youth poultry and
beef shows and the water slides
for the kids, which were a big
"The kids are having a ball.
My only complaint about that
is that I'm not small enough to
go in," he said.
The bottom line is that the
festival is all about blueberries
and kids, and Jarrett said as far
as he is concerned, since both
did great, the festival can only
be considered a success.
This year's Blueberry
Festival actually got off to a slow
start Friday afternoon, but
picked up as the sun went down.
Whether it was because of the
combined heat and humidity or
that people just didn't begin to
appear until the workday was
over and the weekend had start-
ed, no one can say.
Some vendors said they
were alarmed by the low num-
ber of people attending Friday
afternoon, fearing that was the
forecast for the whole weekend.
But on Saturday morning,
there was a dramatic change
and several vendors selling
blueberries and blueberry
bushes.reported booming sales,
including for blueberry pancake
The vendor at the Jeophro's
Swamp Sauce booth was
pleased by the response to his
blueberry pancakes with
sausage, but was not prepared
for the long line ready to eat
them when the festival opened
at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Somehow
a rumor spread that he would
not be selling breakfast past 10
a.m., hence the long line that
Blueberries and blueberry
bushes were the big sellers.
However, the lines were just as
long where cold beverages, ice,

sions on Friday evening. There
were not enough contenders in
either one to merit third-place
winners. However, first-place

"She's not doing good,"
said Seagraves, who visited

pulled her out of the jail and
had her working in the court
as a bailiff just to get her out of

Hart seeks seat in House
Bobby Hart, a veteran edlu-
cator in Nassau, Baker and
Union counties, has announced
his candidacy for the Floridal
Iouse of lepr)cscnilativw's,
He will oppose Janet Adkins
in the primary election to suc-
ceed Rep. Aaron Bean, who is
stepping down because of man-
dated term limits.
Hart, a Republican, has
taught at West Nassau High
School sin& 2000 and has been
involved in public education for
almost 30 years. He is also a
major in the U.S. Army Reserve
and has served two tours in sup-
port of Operation Iraqi Free-
dom, returning most recently
in April 2007.
"I don't think anyone knows
this district and the people in it
better than I do," said Hart, a
sixth-generation Floridian who
has strong ties with all six coun-
ties within the district. "Obvious-
ly, education is my first love,
but I will be more than a one-
issue candidate. I'm concerned
and have experience in the
plight of working families, pro-
viding the best security for our

Pig slop tc
The world's largest floating barbecue
pit is about to kick into high gear off
Main Beach any day now. As soon as
preparations are complete, millions of
cubic yards of pork will get pumped onto the
beach starting just south of Fort Clinch State
Park and for several miles south.
Pork, you say? You mean sand, don't you?
Nope. Fernandina Beach already has sand on
it. Has had since the island was'born. What's
getting ready to be shot out of steel pipes onto
the beach from an offshore site is pure pig
meat: Be sure to thank Rep. Ander Crenshaw.
He's the grill-meister who brung home the
Of course, it's only costing us that's you
and me, Jane and Joe Taxpayer a measly
$14.1 million for this little beach picnic. But
who's counting? Crenshaw earmarked the lat-
est $5.4 million bit of this hog out of the last
chunk of a U.S. House of Representatives
spending bill this spring.
Conservatives rail against earmarks and
pork barrel projects. They posture and pontifi-
cate and bluster and scold about wasteful
spending. And rightfully so. But let a bunch of
oceanfront property owners start whining
about Mama Nature chawing away at the
beach in front of their summer places and -
whoa, baby, lookout! Boss Hawg to the rescue.

needs of thousands.
For eons, the shape of
Amelia Island has been
defined by nature. It's a barri-
er island facing an eternal and
relentless assault from the
brute force of the Atlantic
SOcean. The sand shifts from
north to south and south to
north. One end of the island

..... process reverses itself and
starts all over again. Now
Joe Palmer oceanfront property owners,
many of whom are only here a few weeks out
of each year, want to impose their will on God.
And they want you and me to pay for it.
I take no joy in watching a person's house
or front yard get gobbled up by the ocean. But
come on. Hurricane Dora, the last real hurri-
cane to really slam this town, was over 40 years
ago. If you've been dumb enough to build a
house along the sand dune facing the ocean
since then, why should I have to pony up to
insure your folly? Why should I have to pour
any of my tax money down this bottomless
ghost crab hole? And please, spare me the pig
poo about it being for everyone's benefit.
Where is that good old reliable self-suffi-
ciency conservatives are always extolling?
Every time someone to the center or the left of
the spectrum has an idea that will possibly
result in a dip into the public till, they cry foul.
They raise the specter of socialism. They revile
their ideological opposites with accusations of
creating and nurturing a cradle to grave nanny
state. Let the free market take care of it, is their
rallying cry. Not out of my pockets, you don't,
Well, OK. Fair enough.
Here's what I propose. Let all the ocean-
front property owners that would include pri-
vate residences, resorts, condominiums, hotels
and anyone else with a structure or dwelling
along the dune line form a private corpoia-
tion. Let them impose fees on their members
just as condo associations do. Let them deposit
those fees into a bank account only to be touch-
ed for beach renourishment projects. And then,
when the ocean starts eroding the sand from
, their front doors, let them go out onto the free
market and purchase the sand to fix the prob-
lem. Goods and services paid for with privately
raised monies. Capitalism at its finest.
But the way things stand right now, the
stuff that's about to start flowing out of those
big bore pipes onto our beaches is going to
have a distinctive porcine aroma. To heck with
wading around in it looking for ancient shells
and shark's teeth. You might as well head on
down there with your favorite sauce and couple
of slices of bread and start sopping it up..
Most of it swill get dumped in front of houses
along South Fletcher Avenue where you and I
can't even park our cars when the miniscule
"public beach accesses" fill up. And they want
us to pay for it?
That pork is starting to smell like socialism.

Airplanes, oxygen masks and God's wisdom
Out of the blue, the
airplane began to
shake violently. The
caught us all off guard.
Though the captain had
warned us that it might be a
bumpy ride, I don't think any-
one was expecting this. Even
the flight attendants seemed'
a bit concerned. Though
somehow they managed to
keep calm confident smiles
on their faces, I know there
were a few moments when
those same in-control smiles
almost dropped to the floor.
The serious tone of the
captain's voice brought us all
to attention. "Please return to
your seats and buckle up," he
said in a short, busy and to
the point tone. Suddenly the
sound of clicking seatbelts
filled the entire plane. ,
Somehow the few hundred
people on board, who just
moments before were all
doing their own thing, were
now all united under one
voice; that of our captain.
Even I, the son of an Air
Force fighter pilot, was a bit
concerned. The violent shak-
ing and sudden drops in alti-

head, pull on the cord gently
and breathe normally," the
flight attendant said as she
finished her pre-flight demon-
stration and I came back from
my momentary daydream.
That's right; thankfully, the
whole thing was just a day-
dream. Somehow, while the
stewards and flight attendant
were giving their little before
flight speech, my wandering
mind had gotten the best of
Have you ever wondered
what it would really be like to
have to breathe through one
of those things? I have to tell
you, the idea that we're sup-
posed to put it around our
head and "breathe normally"
is a bit comical to me.
I will say, however, that

advice that makes a whole lot
of sense. "If you're traveling

we're trying to help others,
we end up passing out our-
selves? When it comes to
being on an airplane, if you're
traveling with someone who
needs your help and you pass

twice the problem.

again, especially in my own
life. If I'm not careful, I find

of the matter is that God
loves you and wants you to be
well. Besides, in the end, if

The case for renter's insurance
For the News-Leader
If you're a renter and there's
an accident or burglary, the
landlord's insurance will pick
up the tab, right? Not true.
Landlords usually only insure
the building structure itself, so
you're responsible for any lost
or damaged possessions. And,'
if someone falls in your apart-
ment or gets bitten by your dog,
guess who they might sue? You.
Given this level of risk expo-
sure, it's surprising more ten-
ants don't carry renter's.insur-
ance. Many people feel their
belongings aren't valuable
enough to insure, but suppose
an electrical fire or burst pipe
Here are a few tips for find-
ing the right coverage:
What it covers. Renter's
insurance commonly covers
property that's lost, damaged
or stolen due to most occur-
rences including fire, lightning,
windstorms, bail. explosions,
smoke, vandalism, heftr,plfrib-
ing leaks or falling objects.
You're also usually covered
away from home for example,
if your suitcase is stolen, some-
one breaks into your car or you
get mugged. However, flood,
hurricane and earthquake dam-
age usually isn't covered, so
you'll need a separate rider.

Inventory. Write down
everything you own and how
much it would cost to replace.
Furniture, clothes, shoes, elec-

art and collectibles, kitchen
appliances and dishes, books
and CDs, sports equipment, etc.
That's the minimum you need.
Document everything. To

ify losses for tax purposes, save
receipts and photograph or'
videotape everything; store a

box or other offsite location.
Payout options. Actual
cash value (ACV) coverage pays
the amount needed to repair or
replace your belongings, minus
depreciation and deductible.
The alternative method,
replacement cost coverage,
pays the amount needed to
replace the items in today's dol-
lars (minus deductible)..
Liability coverage. Most
policies cover amounts you're
liable for (including legal fees)
if you're sued .by someone
harmed in your home. Consider
increasing this .coverage well
beyond the minimum,amount.
High-value items. Stan-

SAILFISH GIVE MARLINS A FIGHT
The Barco-Newton Fighting Marlins were no match for
the strength of the McArthur Family YMCA Sailfish
Saturday. The Sailfish opened the season with a huge
win, 1,225-643, proving the Sailfish were the fastest fish
in the pool. There was much excitement on the pool
deck as swimmers began their events, racing to improve
their times or achieving national time standards and
even setting new pool records. "We are looking forward
to a great winning season this year with this dedicated
group of swimmers," Coach Mary Donn Bowman said.
The Sailfish will be back in action June 28 when they
travel to Jacksonville to take on the Dye-Clay Dolphins.

Woods out rest ofthe year
in dramatic fashion, Tiger
Woods is done for the year
and is scheduled to under-
go ACL reconstructive surgery on
his left knee. This will mark the third
surgery in five years Woods has had
on this knee.
Woods apparently tore the ACL
over a year ago in a jogging accident.
However, once the ACL is torn, it
puts.the cartilage pads at increase
risk for tearing, which later hap-
pened to Woods. He began having
increased pain and giving way of his
knee in April. He was able to finish
secondat this year's Masters and
then underwent a knee arthroscopy
a few days later, but only to address
the cartilage tear and not the ACL.
The ACL is a ligament about the
size of your ring finger, which runs
from the thigh bone above to the
shin bone below and controls rota-
tional stability of the knee. If the
knee is subjected to significant
torque, such as Woods spinning
through a golf swing, the knee may
actually pop out and then back into
It appears that this may be what
Woods was experiencing during the .
course of his round on certain shots
as he grimaced in pain. In fact, his
Saturday, playing partner, Robert
Karlsson, even commented that
Woods' knee was "clicking and
clunking" like something he had
never heard before.
Woods reportedly had a discus-
sion with his physicians regarding
his surgical options after the
Masters. One was to simply scope
the knee for the cartilage tear and
hopefully the strength in his knee
would allow him to overcome any
instability he might have due to the
loss of the ACL. If he was not able to
tolerate his ACL deficiency, then this
would require reconstructive sur-
gery at a later date. His other option
was to fix both at the initial setting,
but this would require a much longer
recovery and end his season.
Given the fact that the U.S. Open
was approaching, Woods chose the
less invasive option. However, as
many saw during this past weekend,
his knee would give way at times
through his swing, particularly with
the driver, and thus reconstructing
the ACL is now necessary.
Despite his knee injury, Woods
was able to win five of the seven tour-
naments he played
in this year.
Woods was told
by his doctors that
qT he should not play
.in the U.S. Open,
*not because of the
S. j ACL, but because of
two tibial stress
fractures he had

after his surgery.
Stress fractures can occur any
.time an -athlete goes from a-period of
inactivity to significant activity and
this happened to Woods. His doctors
told him that he shouldn't play, but
on his Website he admitted that he
looked at the doctor and said, "I'm

Now Woods is following through
with his doctor's advice to shut it
down and stabilize his knee. Woods
wrote in his blog, "Now, it is clear
that the right thing to do is to listen
to; my doctors, follow through with
this surgery and focus my attention
on rehabilitating my knee. While I
am obviously disappointed to have to
'miss the remainder of the season, I
have to do the right thing for my
-long-term health and look forward to
returning to competitive golf when
my doctors agree that my knee is
sufficiently healthy. My doctors
assure me, with the proper rehabili-
tation add training, the knee will be
strong and there will be no long-term
A typical recovery from an ACL
reconstruction is 6-9 months and I
would expect him to be ready cer-
tainly by the Masters next year.

With the future uncertain for the
U.S. Post Office on Centre, the
museum considered now to be a
good time to document the historical
relevance of the city's oldest post
The historic, United States Post
Office, Custom House and
Courthouse was built near the end
of Fernandina Beach's "Golden Era,"
in the boom following creation of the
railroad line and fires in 1876 and
1883 that destroyed many commer-
cial buildings. The Amelia Island
Museum of History's collection
includes 38 photographs dating from
April 6, 1908, when the land was an
olive orchard owned by the Lesesne
family, through Oct. 18, 1910, when
the building was completed. The
cost for the building was $90,000.
The style is based on Florentine
architecture from the 16th century
Italian Renaissance, designed by
architect John Knox Taylor, a rela-
tive of the 12th president of the
United States, Zachary Taylor.
Architectural features include the
green tile roof, arches and three
types of window construction. It was
the first steel structure built in
Oral histories of past and current
postal employees were recorded for
this exhibit in cooperation with
Fernandina Beach High School stu-
dents from Rob Hick's TV

highlight the historical significance
of an artifact that may soon be
