Cit sticks to higher tax rate

ANGELA DAUGHTRY year capital plan includes the pos
News Leader office acquisition and rehabilitation

Fernandina Beach Commissioners
approved Tuesday a tentative proper-
ty tax rate increase to support a 2010-
11 budget that increases expenses
over this year.
Commissioners toted 4-1 to set the
rollback rate at 4.9365 mills, but Mayor
Susan Steger said the action was "not
that meaningful" and the tax rate can
still be lowered before the final budg-
et is approved Sept. 21.
"(rhis) is a tentative rate. I antici-
pate more cuts. I think commissioners
want to look at every item. We just
got the details Friday night. We have
:work to do. We will not decide on the
:final millage rate until the first of
SSeptember," Steger emphasized. The
commission can legally reduce, but

'This) is a tentative rate. I anticipate
more cuts.... We will not decide on the
final rate until the first of September.'

not increase, the tax rate as budget dis-
cussions continue.
Commissioner Arlene Filkoff voted
against the rollback rate, saying she
believed the city should make addi-
tional cuts in expenses.
According to City Manager
Michael Czymbor, the new rate was
necessary to ensure a "continuation of
existing public service levels." .
Czymbor's budget proposal
includes staff reductions of 19.5 full-

time equivalent employees that would
save the city about $500,000. The pro-
posed budget also includes $232,000
for a 2 percent wage increase for
exempt city personnel and police and
fire department employees.
Dredging of the city marina has
been budgeted at $250,000. Downtown
improvements and minor rehabilita-
tion of the downtown post office were
included in the 2010-11 budget at a
cost of $425,000. The budget's five-


at $4.7 million, but does not identify a
funding source.
The rollback tax rate is adjusted
yearly to bring the same amount of
property tax dollars into the city as the
year before. When property values
were going up, the rollback rate would
go down, but since the real estate
crash the rollback rate increases to
keep tax revenues the same even as
property values decline.
Czymbor emphasized that the pro-
posed budget delivered to city com-
missioners July 30 is still "in the
reviewing stages" and that budget

directors and the community will con-
tinue. The next budget workshop is

Len Kreger, right, a volunteer for Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch, and a large crowd of well-wishers at Eighth and Ocean cheer on a live
leatherback turtle hatchling as it returned to the sea Tuesday. The first leatherback turtle nest in many years on Amelia Island was exca-
vated by Pat Kreger and revealed 37 hatched eggs and 51 unhatched eggs. Leatherback turtles usually nest farther south in Florida and
earlier in the season. There have been a record number of sea turtle nests on the island this season, with the total currently at 180.

City declines to sell surplus land

A resolution to dispose of surplus
city land was tabled by city commis-
sioners at their Tuesday meeting.
City staff earlier this year had
developed a list of about a dozen prop-
erties suitable for sale to bring in
extra revenue and property taxes.
City commissioners at that time cut
the list down to eight properties for
further study.
In the latest evaluation, 25 prop-
erties were considered and seven of
them were deemed "surplus" by city
staff. Six other properties, zoned
recreational, could only be sold or
leased if approved by voter referen-
Most commissioners appeared
hesitant to allow the city to let the
properties go, but for different rea-
sons. Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch
said he was concerned about the
necessity for infrastructure for the
properties if they were developed.
"We have finite acreage on this

properties to help the budget. That's just

island," said Commissioner Eric
Childers. "When you have. green
space, that means something. We may
be going through an exercise that
may come to nothing." Childers
added that a property behind the Crab
Trap restaurant and another at Indigo
and South Eighth streets may be suit-
able for selling, but he questioned
the timing.
"We're not hard-pressed to sell
them," Childers said.
"I was not a proponent of selling
these properties to help the budget,"
said Vice Mayor Tim Poynter. "That's
just stupid. Quite honestly, I wish we
weren't talking about it... it's fallen on
deaf ears. I've gotten e-mails from

people saying, don't sell city proper-
ty. Maybe we should take this off the
table and not talk about it ever, ever
Bunch said Poynter was correct in
wanting the issue off the table,
because it had come up several times
before "and it's the same answer
every time.... we're wasting valuable
staff time looking at something we
looked at six months ago."
"It's almost like we're finding
every little piece of property we own
to see if we can sell it," Bunch said.
"It's going to be a lot harder to buy it
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said he had to "respectfully disagree"

with commissioners' arguments that
the city hold onto the properties.
"People are asking for alternative
ways to finance the government," he
said. "People are saying to look out-
side the box."
City Project Manager/Engineer
Glenn Semanisin said commission-
ers should also consider the long-
terin maintenance costs the city is
paying to keep up the properties.
"I'm glad I got this information,"
said Childers, saying again that two
properties could be sold but the tim-
ing is bad. "Returning (the proper-
ties) to the tax rolls will help, but sell-
ing them will not help balance the
budget. I hope the people out there
In Czymbor's latest budget, pre-
sented to commissioners July 30, the
sale of the surplus city real estate was
projected to bring in half a million
dollars in revenues.
According to the Nassau County
Property Appraiser's website, the city
owns 179 properties.

The hopes of Nassau County envi-
ronmentalists to block development
on Crane Island were dashed Tuesday
when the First District Court of Appeal
denied their motions to rehear a case
against Nassau County or certify it to
the Florida Supreme Court.
All legal options to block develop-
ment of the island have now been
exhausted, according to County
Attorney'David A. Hallman.
"The appellate case is over and the
only thing left to occur now is that the
court of appeals direct Judge (Brian)
Davis to reinstate the county's devel-
opment order," Hallman said
However, Robert Weintraub, one
of the Nassau County residents who
filed the original suit, said the group
was still examining its options. "We're
trying to sort that out right now," he
said Wednesday. Weintraub said other
parties in the case were out of town,
but the group would meet soon to
decide what, if any, further action to

FRIDAY. August 6, 2010 NEWS News-Leader


These are excerpts from the
July 30 budget message sent by
City Manager Michael Czymbor
to Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners. A complete copy is avail-
able from the City Clerk, 204 Ash
St., 277-7305.
"The development of this
2010-11 budget document was
even more challenging and dif-
ficult than the previous year's
budget, but we developed a
comprehensive and collective
strategy to overcome this mon-
umental task. Our strategy was
to undertake a series of four
budget development work-
shops in which the commis-
sioners and staff worked col-
lectively and comprehensively
to discuss and understand all
the factors and building blocks
which impact (positively and
negatively) the development of
the municipal budget. These
building blocks include the
city's taxable value, stability of
the budget revenue sources,
employee salary and benefit
costs and the operational costs
required to continue to provide
our public services to our resi-
dents. ..."
"There is a good probability
that an additional reduction in
property tax values will occur in
the 2010-11 budget when prop-
erty values are established and
levied. Additionally there is the
need to continue to fund critical
community programs; we firm-
ly believe the 'rollback' millage
is fiscally prudent and recom-
mend the rollback rates be
adopted with this budget. The
city has been a good fiscal stew-
ard and has reduced the overall
millage rate nine times in the
last 12 years and maintained
the rate in the three other years.
The city had previously
decreased the overall millage
,rate 33 percent from 2006-8 and
has gone to the rollback rate in
each of the past five years... :"
"The proposed millage rate
will allow the city to receive the
same amount of property tax
revenue to operate even though
the total taxable value ha's
declined (by $155 million and
would produce almost $872,000
less property tax revenue).
Most residents and businesses
will pay approximately the same
amount of property taxes even
at the higher millage rate
because of the reduction in the
assessed value of their proper-
ty. We hope that the city's
efforts in maintaining and pre-
\ i,,isly v lowering the millage
rate will continue to provide
financial relief to our residents,
businesses apd industry.. ."
"New revenue sources
included in the proposed budg-
et are selling surplus real estate
and the implementation of a
'pilot' paid parking kiosk sys-
tem in targeted municipal park-
ing lots and beach access areas.
These additions are needed to

The 2010-11 budget shows
that about half the city's rev-
enues come from local prop-
erty taxes. Other sources are
licenses and permits, franchise
fees, service charges, local
option taxes, fines and inter-
governmental revenues.
Czymbor showed several
graphs to illustrate the need
for the increased rollback rate.
One graph, inspired by Vice
Mayor Tim Poynter, compared
taxable property values with
the millage rate change
between the years 2004-11.
Another chart showed that
taxable property values have
fallen by $155 million since last
fiscal year, which would result
in a decrease of $870,000 in
property tax revenues.
Another graph showed that
taxes levied by Fernandina
Beach have remained steady
since 2004, but taxes for the
Nassau County School Board
and the county have risen
steadily. Most of the popula-
tion growth in the county since
that time has occurred in the
Several local residents,
apparently concerned about a
shaky economic outlook in the
coming year, spoke up against
the increased millage rate.
Resident Tony McAdoo
said the city should be "think-

increasing the rollback rate.
He also suggested city staff

"I have searched my heart

Filkoff also suggested "the

be part of the solution. ... I'm
voting to hold the millage rate,

Titcomb, Weintraub and

The first, a motion for

motion for rehearing en banc,
requests all 15 judges on the

The third is to request the

three requests were denied.
Hallman said that while any-
one has the right to appeal a,

it is more difficult to get a case

with a camera. County officials
have been looking into
Rothwell's handling of that fir-
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
has handed a criminal investi-
gation of Rothwell and three
other suspended Nassau
County administrators over to
the Florida Department of Law
The suspended department
heads are now represented by
Fernandina Beach attorney
John Cascone. In a Tuesday let-
ter to Selby, Cascone claimed
the county's investigations and
the hiring of a private investi-
gator by the anonymous
employees were part of a polit-
ical agenda.
"Whoever was behind the
allegations and hiring of a pri-
vate investigator had an agenda
that was less about providing
clear and concise facts of
wrongdoing and more about
settling scores and creating a
cloud over the reputations of
the four administrators,"
Cascone wrote.
.Rothwell forfeits $8,333 in
unpaid leave time. She would
be ineligible to receive med-
ical insurance that retiring
employees receive until age 65.
She will be entitled to apply to
the state for a pension under
Florida law.
Rothwell's resignation will
not affect the criminal investi-
gation into her behavior.
Rothwell has been employ-
ed by the county since March
2000. She previously worked
for the city of Fernandina
Seagraves was asked by
Selby to investigate the con-
duct of Rothwell, Building
Maintenance Supervisor
Daniel Salmon, Road and
Bridge Supervisor Butch

Hartman and Landfill/Solid
Waste Director Lee Pickett.
The four were suspended with
pay last week after DVDs sur-
faced showing them in a bad
light while attending a May
hurricane preparedness con-
ference in Fort Lauderdale.
The DVDs recorded by a
private investigator hired by
-anonymous county employees
- include footage of Rothwell
straddling Salmon in a pool-
side lounge chair and a nude
Rothwell in public view on a
balcony at a hotel where
Salmon, Hartman and Pickett
were staying.
The county has launched
multiple investigations into the
conduct and referred the mat-
ter to Seagraves and Assistant
State Attorney Wesley White
for criminal investigation.
Seagraves said Wednesday that
he sent the case to FDLE to'
get an independent view on the
politically charged allegations.
"I have met with FDLE and
turned over everything that
was provided to me by the
county manager, Mr. Selby,"
he said. "I've provided them all
the documents and the contact
list of people who were pro-
vided to me as possible wit-
nesses. They're moving for-
ward looking at it as a possible
criminal investigation."
"... Politics in Nassau
County being what they are, it
disturbed me when I first
heard of these events, and the
'defense lawyer in me caused
me to question the allegations,
their timing and the validity of
the supposed complete video-
tapes," Cascone wrote to Selby.
"When I began my discus-
sions with the four longtime
public servants my 'defense
lawyer instincts' were once
again verified," he added. "It
became clear that whoever was
behind the allegations and hir-
ing of a private investigator had

an agenda that was less about
providing clear and concise
facts of wrongdoing and more
about settling scores and cre-
ating a cloud over the reputa-
tions of the four administra-
Cascone also found the July
23 release of the footage sus-
picious. The idea that these are
old events occurring at the
end of May and just now see-
ing the light of day less than a
full month before the upcom-'
ing elections is troublesome in
its own right," he wrote. "There
are places where efforts to
influence elections, such as I
believe this scenario was cre-
ated for, are commonplace -
but they usually are Third
SWorld locations and precipitate
visits from United Nations
One facet of the county's
investigation contemplates
whether the department heads
squandered county funds by
failing to attend all of the class-
es at the conference for which
they signed up. Early reports
from Martha Tripp, director of
administrative services for the
conference, indicated that the
four attended only a day and a
half worth of classes in,the four
days they were there, failing
to show at later sessions for
which they were registered.
However, a Tuesday e-mail
from Tripp to Nassau County
accounting administrative
assistant Sue Butler appeared
to backpedal on that assertion.
"The conference encour-
ages attendees who want to
attend training sessions to pre-
register for their sessions prior
to the conference in order to
guarantee them placement,"
Tripp wrote. "It's not unusual
for attendees to change their
minds upon arriving at the con-
ference and attend a different
training session than that
which they previously selected.
It is possible that the four
employees in question did
Tripp added that in order
to know if the suspended
administrators actually attend-
ed other sessions, the sign-in
sheets from every session
would have to be reviewed a
laborious task since the sheets
are hard copies rather than
Butler responded later the
same day with an e-mailed
request that the sheets be
checked. "I understand the

tedious process," she wrote.
"However, Nassau County
needs to confirm the training
classes attended by the employ-
ees pre-registered or not."
Also being investigated is
whether the suspended
employees actually resided in
the hotel rooms for which the
county was billed, since the
investigator's video indicates
that Rothwell may have spent at
least one night in Salmon's
room at the Bahia Mar Hotel.
Rothwell was registered at the
Sheraton Fort Lauderdale. Her
expense report indicates she
stayed there four nights at
about $130 per night.
Cascone, for his part,
scoffed at the notion that tax-
payer money Was wasted.
"The suggestion that these
four employees have squan-
dered county funds by their
attendance at and participation
in the events of the governor's
conference are belied by the
many different occurrences
that are wholly ignored in the
presentation to the sheriff and,
of course, the media," he wrote.
He pointed out that all four rode
to the conference in Salmon's
truck, therefore charging the
county for.only one mileage
He also claimed they pur-
chased lunchmeats and snacks
to avoid overcharging the coun-
ty for food. In fact, the four
charged the county a total of
$601 for meals during the four-
day conference, according to
expense reports.
Cascone dismissed the sex-
ually charged footage on the
DVDs as "adult" behavior. He
charged that the private inves-
tigator presented his footage
in a way that cast the worst pos-
sible light on the administra-
"The totality of the circum-
stances does not support what
the most likely edited video-
tapes show," he wrote. "There
are many factors, in addition,
that would add up to no more
than adult friends behaving in
a manner as adults on their own
time and spending their own
money. While I may or may not
like what another adult does
on their time, it does.not rise to
the level of a wrongdoing on
their part, nor does it create a
scenario where people should
creatively present events to
make them look bad in the pub-
lic eye."'

Cut through clutter of

automotive advertising

We face constant expo-
sure to commercial mes-
sages every day and that
will never change.
Television, newspapers,
magazines, catalogs, radio,
mail, billboards and the
Internet would not function
without ads. Major indus- _
tries like automobiles, real
estate and food will always KEFFER'S
dominate what is funneled in CORNER
front of the consumer. For
those actively in the market
for a vehicle (2-3 percent at RickKeffer
any given time) there is good information to
be gained. My simple principle in decipher-
ing things is to focus on the facts. Generic
claims to be the biggest, cheapest, oldest or
any other descriptor aren't helpful in this
day and age few people care or buy into it.
New car prospects have an easier task in
getting the facts to buy a car. All dealers pay
the same thing for a vehicle, with a slight
freight charge being the only variance, so no
dealer has an advantage. This is a funny thing
for a dealer to say, but the best source of
information is the manufacturer. What are
the rebates or finance incentives currently
offered? Few new cars are strong enough to
be sold without a manufacturer incentive, so
find out what is on the table. Realize that
most incentive programs are good only for
the current month. After that they are most
likely to stay the same, occasionally go up
and seldom go down. Manufacturer web sites
detail what models, equipment and colors are
available. Some will allow you to search for
the specific vehicle among regional dealers.
Your local dealers have the ability to find a
vehicle and I like that as a starting point.
Dealer ads with specific new cars at a sale
price are useful.
Look for a stock number in the ad to make
sure it is a verifiable offer. Avoid the blanket
offers for trade-ins and discounts. My least
favorite is "All model X's discounted up to
$10,000." Either they are all $10,000 off or up

Facts are out there to make
informed choices on a new
or used vehicle.

to $10,000 off, but they can't be both. There
can be some good offers involving payments
if it is on a specific vehicle and you read the
disclosure to verify the down payment and
fees to be added. New cars are not too diffi-
cult when you get the facts.
Used cars are all unique, so you>will want
as many facts as possible from the ad. The
year and make are straight forward, but the
value of different models can be thousands. A
Honda could be a DX, LX or EX model in
some cases a needed bit of data to assess a
price offer. Major options such as automatic
transmission, power windows and locks,
leather and many others factor in the value -
assume nothing. Safety features like anti-lock
brakes and air bags add value. Many dealers
will share the reconditioning ticket and vehi-
cle history, if you ask. Mileage is the biggest
factor to consider, because you are buying

T ravel down Amelia
Island's Buccaneer
Trail A1A south of
Fletcher Avenue -
and you pass "The Enclave"
with iron gates eerily similar
to the opening scene of the
movie "Citizen Kane." But
pass through the gates and
you don't find a millionaire's
mansion but an unfinished
quadrangle with 20 units built
where some 100 were
planned. Only two homes are
owned by individuals; the
other 18 units are owned by
two banks which took over
the property when Summer
Beach gave up on the devel-
opment touted to be one of
Amelia's finest.
This scene is replicated
not only across eastern
Nassau County but through-
out Florida. New* residents

growth through residential
and commercial development
has ended, probably forever.
This is called a "paradigm
shift," a change in a funda-
mental model of events. For
example, the railroad barons

road business, not under-
standing they were in the

through foreclosure and the
developers who are taking
over plan a quite different
community of $200,000
homes. The once-grand golf
course there has a question-
able future.
The effect on the county's
economy has been huge. Jobs
have evaporated, particularly
in construction, property and
finance; Nassau's May unem-
ployment rate was 10.4 per-
cent, in the upper third of
Florida counties (Florida's
rate was 11.7 per cent, one of
the highest in the nation). .
Sean Snaith, an economist
at the University of Central
Florida in Orlando, reckons
that Florida's economy faces
"a long and protracted climb
out of a deep hole," with
unemployment remaining
high until 2012. It will be 2014

ing, the 2008 as government diverted
severe $58 billion a year from the
s are likely economy. (Unemployment
went from 3.3 percent to 11
messing out- percent as a result) So the
lorida as a first thing Nassau must do is
iway from to reduce its government
tial and budget to reflect the reality of
pment to lower revenue. Raising
paradigm taxes (or fees) is not an
he old for- answer. We need a smaller
no longer government!
Then county government
and state must focus on building a man-
grasp ufacturing/tourism/health

attract industry. We must
improve health care facilities
and attract more doctors so
our aging citizens don't have
to travel to Jacksonville or
Gainesville for care. Improve
the tourism and health care
industries in Nassau and
there will be more jobs and
more consumer dollars will
be spent here.
Since our local govern-
ment does not seem to under-
stand the dynamic or causes
of this paradigm shift, the vot-
ers will have to take some
control. The answer to "build,

FRIDAY, August 6, 2010 NEWS News-Leader

SFor friends, water sweet enough

I met Bob about five or six years ago on
D3.com, a small college football bulletin
board. My youngest son was attending and
playing football at Defiance College, a
small liberal arts school in Ohio. Bob and his
wife are Defiance alumni. My wife and I flew
up and attended all our son's home games.
Thanks to the Internet, I was able to catch the
away games by streaming radio broadcast.
The rivalry between teams on the D3.com
bulletin board is as hot as anything in the big
Division 1 teams of the Southeastern, Big Ten
or Pac Ten conferences. In the days leading up
to the games, the chest thumping and smack
talk increases until it reaches a rolling boil.
Come Saturday night, there's enough crow to
go around for everyone. Most of it is your typi-
cal jock, former jock or wannabe jock talk.
After I'd been posting on the board for awhile, I
started taking notice of a particular poster who
bolstered his football knowledge with wit and
humor. He usually ended his posts with a
snatch of lyrics from some obscure rock and
roll number that left most of the other younger
posters scratching their heads.
Bob's a big Frank Zappa fan and if you've
ever listened to anything by Zappa and the
Mothers of Invention, you know how bizarre
and quirky his music was most of the time.
Until I met Bob, I thought I was the last Zappa
fanatic in the world. He'd end a post with some-
thing from At Saint Alphonso's Pancake
SBreakfast and I'd reply back with a post that

S ended with something from
Don't Eat the Yellow Snow.
After awhile, it became an
inside joke between the two
of us and an Internet friend-
ship was born.
As it turns out, Bob and I
are both about the same age.
He's a couple of years my
senior and we're both prod-
CUP OF ucts of the sixties.
JOE Throughout the four years
S.... my son was playing football at
Defiance, Bob and I contin-
Joe Palmer ued to chat back and forth on
the football bulletin board,
sometimes eschewing game or team talk alto-
gether to engage in hippie humor that per-
plexed all the younger guys, or just reminisc-
ing about the great rock and roll bands and
albums of the day. I mentioned one day being a
collector of old vinyl albums and a new layer
was added to our cyberspace friendship. Bob's
album collection made mine look puny, plus I
think he has every album Zappa ever recorded.
From time to time, we'd talk about getting
together to meet and go fishing. Bob lived in
Atlanta and was an avid fly fisherman. He once
e-mailed me a photo of himself standing knee-
deep in a clear stream holding what looked to
be a trophy sized trout and I accused him of
posing with a stuffed fish. As much as I wanted
to take him up on his offer and join him for a

few days of trout fishing, I never seemed to
find the time to do it. And as much as we talked
about him coming down and joining me for
some offshore action, those plans never
seemed to materialize, either. The years rolled
by and mine and Bob's friendship grew.
Sometimes we'd call each other on the phone
and talk for an hour or more.
Late last year, Bob informed me that his
wife's government agency was deploying her
to Africa for two to five years. We'd have to get
together and finally meet each other face to
face and go fishing together or just hang out,
we agreed. Unfortunately, we never got
around to it and a few weeks ago, Bob e-mailed
me with a catalogued list of his vinyl album
library and told meto pick out the ones I want-
ed. Their departure date was looming.
We met early one morning last week in
Statesboro, Ga., where we finally shook hands,
had breakfast together and enjoyed one anoth-
er's company for an hour or so. Bob and I
transferred the three boxes of vinyl from his
car to mine and we shook hands again and
went our separate ways. My wife and I have a
standing invitation to visit Bob and his wife in
Botswana, a date I intend to keep this time.
An African proverb says, "Between true
friends, even water drunk together is sweet
enough." I sure wish my buddy Bob and I had
met around the well more than once. But
there's always Africa, eh?


Department heads
Chuck Cooper was forced
to resign as fire chief because
the Fire and Rescue Depart-
ment was not going in the direc-
tion the county wanted it to go.
This is the reason Ed Sealover
made in a statement at the time.
Animal Control has had prob-
lems from Day 1 and was as
bad as it could get under the
direction of Brenda Rothwell.
Road and Bridge Department
is almost as bad under Butch
Hartman's lack of leadership.
The Building Maintenance
Department barely maintains
the county buildings. The
Building Department has its
problems and buys new vehi-
cles every 30,000 miles. This
must be the direction Nassau
County officials want depart-
ments to go.
Department heads party at
hurricane conferences and it's
just fine ("Scandal snags 4
administrators," Aug. 4). I've
neyer met Hartman, never
tajed to Hartman and he label"
me a "disgruntled citizen."
What Hartman does not under-
stand is that there are some
70,000 disgruntled citizens in
this county. Another point he
does not understand, nor do the
other officials of this county, is
that they work for the disgrun-
tled citizens and that must make
him and the others "disgrun-
tled employees."
It's time for Nassau County
to shed the "good-old-boy sys-
tem." Mr. (Mike) Boyle stated
in the forum last week that he
stands on his record ("Incum-
bents stand on.county record,"
July 30). He must sit a lot
because he has no record other
than status quo. Mr. (County
Manager Ted) Selby, who are
the other county employees that
went to the hurricane confer-
ence as you stated Friday in
your press conference? Take
sworn affidavits from them that
the four in question attended
all the sessions. Disgruntled cit-
izens, we have a lotto change in
this county and now is the time
to start.
Roger Horton

Should county employees
who campaign. for commis-
sioners get bigger raises?
In the 2002, 2004 and 2006
elections the Nassau County
firefighters' union used funds
they were given by the county
to campaign for union-endorsed
political candidates. In the 2006
election the union-endorsed
political candidates for Nassau
County Commission were Mike
Boyle and Barry Holloway. I am
glad to report the county will
not be giving the union funds to
do this in the 2010 election.
However, some may have
noticed the firefighters' union-
funded billboards supporting
Commissioners Boyle and
Holloway, located on A1A in
Yulee and on US 1 in Hilliard. I
understand each billboard cost
about $1,200 the first month and
$800 each following month. So

the cost for three months could
be about $5,000.
Let's look at who benefited
from having county firefighters
campaign for candidates in
2006. Boyle and Holloway were
elected and benefited. It now
appears the union that cam-
paigned for them has also ben-
efited. The most recent Nassau
County firefighters union con-
tract approved by the Nassau
County Commissioners awards

The recent elimination of the
Healthy Families Florida pro-
gram in Nassau County is a
huge loss to the community and
is both discouraging and dis-
appointing to the many local
families who counted on its valu-
able services.
As a front-line resource and
advocate in social services, par-
ticularly in prevention pro-
grams, Family Support Services
of North Florida (FSS) imme-
diately stepped in to offer our
services to the 40 families
impacted by the budget-cut-
demise of Healthy Families
Florida. We provided informa-
tion about our prevention pro-
gram and other services, and
had authorization referrals at
the ready to promptly integrate
families into our programs.
Since 2007, FSS has served
Nassau County as the lead
agency for adoption, foster care
and prevention services. Our
S.T.E.PS. program Strength-

ening Ties and Empowering
Parents provides in-home
counseling and guidance
regarding parenting skills,
budgeting and money manage-
ment skills, behavioral man-
agement strategies and more.
.We also connect our families
with other resources in the com-
munity and help them achieve
success by creating a strong
family unit. By strengthening
families and giving parents
important tools and knowledge,
FSS is successful in preventing
child abuse and neglect
Other community agencies
such as Micah's Place, Sutton
Place Behavioral Health and
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves and his office also
stepped up to support the fam-
ilies in need. In addition, some
of the affected families were
able to turn to the Healthy Start
program offered by the Nassau
County Health Department.
Though a crisis has been
averted, FSS will continue to
advocate for funding of Healthy
Families Florida as well as for
other important social servic-
es programs in our community.
It is vital that these services and
resources continue to be avail-
able to families facing obstacles
and issues. The safe and pro-
ductive futures of our children
depend on it.

I am sick and tired of multi-
millionaires trying to buy a high
elective office. It's election time
again in Florida and we have
two multi-millionaires spending
millions to try and buy their
way into an elective office. On
the Republican side, there is a
multi-millionaire spending mil-
lions to try and buy the gover-
norship. On the Democratic
side, there is another multi-mil-
lionaire trying to buy a Senate
seat. I have nothing against
these two individuals and
applaud them for their success
in the business world. However,
it doesn't mean they would be
effective in public office, a major
problem with newcomers is that
they don't have a track record
and can promise anything to

get elected. Another problem
is that we already have a large
number of millionaires in gov-
ernment. When times get
tough, who got bailed out? Not
the wage earners but the big
banks. Duh!
I recommend staying with
someone with experience and a
track record in government I
also suggest that when you see
all of the signs and ads for state
and local office seekers, remem-
ber somebody is donating or
paying big bucks for these ads.
Personally, I am going to try
and look at the character of the
candidates and ignore the signs,
etc. When in doubt, I plan to
vote for the guy (or girl) who
can't afford the big advertising

Rick Keffer Dodge. I took my
car in for repair last week and I
was treated with the utmost
kindness and respect. They did
a great job and made me feel
like they appreciated my busi-
ness. I especially liked the fact
that my car was cleaned out-
side and inside as well. No get-

History repeats itself
During a 1984 presidential
campaign speech, Democratic
candidate Walter Mondale
uttered the famous words, "Mr.
Reagan will raise taxes; and so
will I. He won't tell you, I just
did." Ronald Reagan went on to
receive the most electoral votes
in history and defeat Walter
Mondale to win the pPresidency
by a landslide.
In 1774, at the age of 19,
Marie Antoinette became the
Queen of France. According to
historical legend, she was so
out of touch with reality, that
when she was informed that her
people were starving to death
because they didn't have any
bread, her solution was "Let
them eat cake." As queen,

Antoinette could not lose an
election, but she did lose her
head by way of the guillotine
One cannot help but sense
the developing animosity, of
those in private sector towards
those in the public sector. While
the recession has caused people
in the private sector to lose busi-
nesses, jobs and homes, those
working in the public sector
have been, by comparison,.rel-
atively insulated. What is sur-
prising is that despite the eco-
nomic woes of the private
sector, some elected govern-
ment officials are willing to go
on record as requesting budget
and pay increases. Holy guillo-
tine Batman, talk about politi-
cal suicide!
This upcoming election may
not necessarily be Democrats
vs. Republicans in as much as it
may be between candidates
from the private sector vs. those
from the public sector. Since
private sector voters far out-'
number public sector voters, I
suspect that if the word "re-
elect" appears on a candidate's
campaign sign or'the phrase
"20 years of government serv-
ice" appears in his or her cam-
paign literature, those candi-
dates are at a distinct
disadvantage. But while they
may lose the election, try to
look at the bright side: at least
this isn't France in 1793.

Teachable Moment'
The recent saga of Shirley
Sherrod and the treatment of
our President who called for a
"Teachable Moment" brought
back my "Teachable Moment"
on this subject. Shirley must
have had a truly wonderful
mother to have become so tol-
erant. My mother was also the
one responsible for my
"Teachable Moment."
The summer I turned five,
my parents were living over the
family business trying to save
for a new house. It was located
in a poor neighborhood in a
small southern town. I played
with the local children.
Sometimes we played under (or
in) the trees behind my father's
factory or on the coal pile.
Sometimes we played at the

nearby school.
One day the other children
did not come to play. After sev-
eral days, I heard the others at
the school and went running to
play with them. When they saw
me, they said that their mother
had told them that I was differ-
ent and they were not to play
with me anymore.
In tears I ran home to my
mother. Between sobs I told her
what they had said. Comforting
me, she explained that after we
played in the coal pile she could
not see much difference
between me with my normally
blonde curls and white skin and
the other children who had
black skin and dark hair. She
then went on to say that their
mother was trying to protect
her children from the pain I felt
at that moment so don't blame
her. She told me that she hoped
I would decide to pick my
friends not by skin or hair color
or anything else that made them
different, but by how they treat-
ed others.
We moved to a new home
later that summer and I left
behind the place not the feel-
ing. For years I believed that I
had been much too young for
the pain I had felt, but I now
wish it for every child if toler-
ance and understanding can be
the results.
I believe that every priest,
rabbi, minister, cleric and parent
should teach the lesson I was
taught before I was five. I am so
thankful for my mother and her
life's lesson.
I cannot think of anything
more important than teaching
tolerance and not bigotry. My
mother said that tolerance
comes naturally to the young
and bigotry must be taught.
The President showed the
capacity to learn from a mis-
take. I am not so sure about
those who started this saga.
The world would change(
dramatically in just one gener-
ation if just this one lesson was
taught and reinforced. I fear for
this country or any other that
says that bigotry and greed are
OK and/or using fear to divide
us should be the norm.
Terrorists cannot destroy us,
but we appear to be on the
verge of doing it ourselves.

Stolen vans, big cities and getting back what you've lost

The sound of glass shattering in
the background, along with all the
other city noises, blended into my
subconscious mind. Part asleep,
part awake, part dreaming, part in
denial; it wasn't until the morning
that I figured out what had hap-
pened. It was gone. My friend's
brand-new van had vanished.
Unfortunately, I was the one respon-
sible for it.
It happened many years ago
while taking a team of youth to
Miami for some hurricane relief
work. At the time, I was their youth
pastor. At the time, I had no idea
what to say to the couple that had so
graciously loaned us their van. If
their daughter had not been in the
group, I'm sure things would have
been much'worse.


Rob Goyette

I'll never forget
what it was like try-
ing to explain to
them what had hap-
pened. As you
might guess, when
they received my
unexpected call,
they were relieved
to hear that their
daughter and the
group were all OK.
That said, the fact
that their van had
been stolen was
enough to bring the
mother to tears. In

all their lives, they had never owned
a vehicle that was brand-new.
To make matters even more col-
orful, the words of the Miami police

officer showed me just how far from
the big city Yulee and Fernandina
really are. "We'll have it back in two
days," he told me in a matter of fact
"What do you mean?" I remem-
ber asking.
"Yep," he said as he handed me a
copy of the paperwork. "In two days
we'll find this van. It won't have
much left to it," he said without
flinching, "but we'll let you know
when we have it back."
To be sure, those words were not
easy ones to relay to the friends who
had loaned us the van. Amazingly,
the officer was right. Within two
days, they had found the van totally
stripped and worthless. Thankfully
for my friends, not only did their
insurance cover the total cost of

replacing the van but, in the end,
they got a better vehicle altogether.
As I think back on those trying
couple of days, Jesus' words found
in John's Gospel, chapter 10 and
verse 10, come to mind. "The thief
comes only to steal and kill and
destroy. I came that they may have
life and have it abundantly." (English
Standard Version)
To me, this verse says it all.
God's agenda is clear and so is the
devil's. If you're like me, and on this
point I'm confident you are, you
don't have to look far to see the
places where the devil has been
busy doing his thing. This world is
riddled with the fruit of his king-
dom. Divorce, murder, drug addic-
tions, abuse, it all can be traced back
to one place. Thankfully, God has

not left us without a remedy.
When I consider my life before I
gave my heart to the Lord, and com-
pare it to where I am now, the con-
trast is astounding. In all the places
where the devil had ripped me off,
God has restored to me a hundred-
fold both in peace and in overall
quality of life not to mention that
for all of eternity I have the assur-
ance that I will be with Him in heav-
en. That's not just a nice message.
That's reality!
As for me, like my friends who
lost much but gained more, turning
my life over to Jesus remains the
best decision I've ever made.

FRIDAY. AUGUST 6,2010 SPORTS News-Leader

Bill Fassbender, right, prepares to release a nice Amelia Island tar-
pon he recently caught while fishing with Capt. Jeff Crumpton.
Tarpon can weigh well over the 100-pound mark. Beach fishermen
are catching a variety of surf species, including excellent eating
pompano and whiting, above.

Tarpon hot along the beaches; menhaden the bait

hot along the beach-
es of Amelia Island,
thanks in part to the
large schools of menhaden
holding in close to the surf.
Tarpon fishermen are first
locating menhaden schools at
the southern end of Amelia
Island and then making a suc-
cessful toss with their men-
haden net, often resulting in
enough live bait for a day of
tarpon fishing.
A live menhaden is then
barbed and cast to the edge of
the menhaden school, where
tarpon weighing to well over
100 pounds are waiting to


ambush an

then attached to the main line

Targeting menhaden
schools along the beaches
also produces a variety of
sharks, cobia, jack crevalle

Offshore fishing continues
to be excellent at FA, HH and

King mackerel fishing has
slowed down considerably
while reports are coming in
with little kingfish action at
many offshore fish havens.
However, the deep waters of
HH fish haven are still pro-
ducing kingfish, particularly
during the middle part of the
day when the sun is attracting
baitfish pods to the surface.

IAA awarded

$25,000 for

new center
For the News Leader
The Island Art Association has received a
$25,000 grant from the Charles & Catherine B.
Rice Foundation of Georgia.
These funds will be used to complete the
interior of the association's Educational
Center now under construction. This building
will allow for expansion of IAA's very success-
ful children's and adult art classes and other
public programs.
Emylee McBrearty, chair of Building &
Properties, states that the grant was a true
blessing since so many interior items had
been eliminated because of a very limited con-
struction budget.
The Charles & Catherine B. Rice
Foundation focuses on .revitalizing communi-
ties, promoting cultural and spiritual heritage
and serving as a catalyst for collaboration with
