'New beginning' at Plantation

Amelia Island Plantation has a new
owner today, heralding changes at
the resort for residents, visitors and
employees, some of whom have lost
their jobs.
It's also a new day for the Amelia
Island Club, an equity club of mem-
bers engaged in recreational and
social activities on the Plantation.
The transfer of ownership to Omni
Hotels and Resorts came at midnight
and ended bankruptcy proceedings
initiated by the Amelia Island Co. last
year in the wake of financial losses

City hikes

but cuts

City commissioners will consider
approving changes in city fees
Tuesday in addition to final approval
of the city budget and tax rate. That
would include a 3 percent increase in
the city water and sewer monthly rate.
A change in some city fees was
given first approval by commission-
ers Sept. 7. Some fees were increased,
but most stayed the same. A few, such
as walking golf fees for city employees,
were actually lowered.
The city's final public hearing on its
proposed budget and property tax rate
is set for 5:05 p.m. Tuesday at City
Hall, 204 Ash St. The budget, which
goes into effect Oct. 1, includes a pay
raise for employees. The rollback tax
rate would keep property taxes about
the same for most homeowners even
though the value of their property has
Walking fees for city employees at
the golf course would decrease from
$5 per nine holes to. $3.50 per nine
holes if commissioners give final
approval to the fee increase amend-
ment. The 18-hole walking fee for city
employees will also decrease from $10
to $7. But proposed cart fees for city
employees have increased and will be
the same as for non-employees.
Many fees at the Fernandina
Harbor Marina and at the municipal
airport will also be increased, but only
three fees in the Community
Development Department will
increase, out of more than 100 differ-
ent fees. The Parks & Recreation
Department Will also see an increase
of just three fees.
All water and wastewater rates will
be increased if the amendment gets
second approval.

not think of a better owner that we
could have attracted to carry the

new learning curve and a new oppor-

proceeds." He announced with
"regret" that Vice President and

3 fired after

The attorney for three former coun-
ty administrators has called for an
investigation to determine if thefi fir-
ings were part of the fallout of a "crim-
inal conspiracy" to: affect local el&c-
Three county department heads -
Building Maintenance supervisor
Daniel Salmon, Landfill/Solid Wasti
director Lee Pickett and Road and
Bridge supervisor Butch Hartman -.
were fired Aug. 6 after becoming
embroiled in a scandal related to their
behavior at a May conference in Fort
Lauderdale. A fourth scandal figure,
Code Enforcement supervisor Brenda
Rothwell, resigned Aug. 5.
The four were captured on video,
obtained by a private investigator,
engaging in frivolity.
In a letter Monday to Nassau
County Commission Chair Mike Boyle,
attorneyJohn CasccAe questioned the
motives of the anonymous county
employees who hired the private inves-
"Firstand foremost, it is my belief
that whoever was behind the release of
the DVD depicting alleged improper
behavior did so with an intent to have
an impact on the election cycle just
past," he wrote. "... I do not purport to
be-an expert on election law, but I am
-of the firm belief that an investigation
needs to be sought for the purpose of
determining who was involved and
whether ornot a criminal conspiracy
wag engaged in to affect the election."
Cascone questioned the timing of
the video's release less than a month
before the Aug. 24 primary election -
and also intimated that there might
have been an element of personal
vendetta against the fired employees in
the release.
"There are too many 'coincidences'
that impacted (the fired employees)
that seemed to have been planned out
for their ultimate impact," he said:
Boyle, however, saw no lawgbroken
in the video's release.
"I think if (Cascone) believes there
was a violation of law involving election,
he has a duty to bring it forward and
ask the appropriate officials to conduct
that investigation," he said Thursday. "If
(there was a crime), his clients are the
ones who've been-wronged by it and
they're the ones who should initiate
the investigation, in my mind."
Boyle was defeated in the Aug. 24
Republican primary election by Steve
Kelley. He said prior to the election

Sink: State's engine

needs an overhaul

A standing-room-only crowd turned
out Wednesday at the Doo Wop Diner,
1120 South 14th St., to support
Democratic gubernatorial candidate
Alex Sink.
Sink, currently Florida's chief finan-
cial officer, will face Republican Rick
Scott in November. She said she want-
ed to have a presence in Nassau
County despite its Republican major-
"You all are fantastic," shetold sup-
porters. "The reason you're here is
about a year ago I made a promise ...
that I wasn't going to give up any ter-
ritories, and we were going to go to all
67 counties. Some people looked at
the map and looked at the vote totals

and said, 'Oh boy, that's Republican
territory.' And I. said, 'Doesn't make
any difference to me.'"
She also blasted her opponent's
largely negative campaign strategy.
"Because of the negative Republican
primary campaign, we're running
against a man named Rick Scott," she
said. "I've never seen such negative
advertising. I kept waiting to hear
something that mattered to Floridians
- something about jobs, something
about the economy. Never heard it.
"Your job in Nassau County is to
reach out to your friends, doesn't mat-
ter who Republicans, independents,"
she added. "But most importantly, we
need to reach out to the Democrats
here in Nassau County.... (But) it isn't

The Council on Aging of
Nassau is pleased to announce
that the COA has become the
first and only official SHINE
site in Nassau County. Full-time
staff member Arlyse McDowell
is the certified COA of Nassau
SHINE counselor. She is avail-
able to meet with clients at
both COA locations: 1367
South 18th St., Fernandina
Beach and 37001 Ingham Rd,
Hilliard, in addition to her reg-
ular duties as a case manager
for COA
Last May, McDowell com-
pleted an extensive six-day
training class in order to qual-
ify for this certification and
proudly displays her official
documentation on her office

SHINE counselors provide
free and unbiased counseling,
education and quality infor-
mation that empowers seniors
to make informed decisions
about their health insurance
needs. The SHINE program
offers confidential health insur-
ance and prescription assis-
tance counseling to Medicare

and their caregivers to help
guide seniors and the disabled
through the often difficult task
of navigating their health insur-

scription assistance programs.
In several instances
McDowell has met with sen-
iors who were losing sleep over
problems they were experi-
encing with their Medicare
coverage. Often the problem
is as simple as understanding
a correspondence or a bill.
Sometimes it is quite difficult -
finding a solution to fix a claim,
billing problem or prescription
McDowell says she has had
a number of seniors come to
her with cleverly worded let-
ters that looked official, but
were really just an advertise-
ment. With her training
McDowell can cut through the
"mumbo-jumbo" and "too-
good-to-be-true" sales gim-
micks that entrap so many sen-
iors in today's complex world,
and advise them on their
options if action is really
needed or if they can just toss
the solicitation away and toss
their worries away with it.
One of the most important
ideas that McDowell tries to

stress to seniors is to never
sign anything that you don't
understand. If there is no one
that you live with that can help
you understand, make an
appointment at one of the COA
centers and McDowell will be
glad to assist you.

eficiary, family member or a

ing your health insurance

According. to Utilities
Director John Mandrick,. it
was necessary to raise the
water and wastewater rates
because the city had gone
many years without having a
water rate study or a rate
increase. An analysis of water
rates, he said, should be done
every three to five years.

Mandrick. That represents a

Commissioners voted
unanimously to approve the

go into effect until the amend-
ment is approved by commis-
sioners a second time.

"To be honest, the charge

made no further legal demands
for his clients.
'There doesn't appear to be
any specific action required or

'Cash for clunkers'

had mixed results

There are precious few new
ideas in this world. Most of
what is done in business is an
attempted replication of some-
one else's success. So it was for
the "cash for clunkers" offer in
the American car market.
I believe Germany was the
pioneer, and it created sales that
wouldn't have otherwise hap-.
pened. In Europe, the owner-
ship cycle is much longer and
this incentive got owners of
older, less efficient cars to take
action. Seeing what happened
in lurope and realizing domes-
tic sales were terrible, cash for
clunkers was initiated here to
stimulate the domestic market
and it did. Almost 700,000 peo-
ple bought new cars, and they
enjoyed a windfall funded by
their neighbors.
The big upside was stimu-
lating the manufacturers by cre-
ating lower supplies and the
need to get the factories new
inventory. The market has con-
tinued to be a little better for
new car gales since then:
Relative to the stimulus dollars
doled out by the federal gov-

ernment, this
cash for
clun kers
investment of
"only" $3 bil-
lion achieved
a bang for the
The sel-
dom dis-
IEFFER'S cussed down-
CORNER side is that
these old
cars, which
Rick Keffer had to be
licensed and insured the prior
year, were all destroyed. Many
would have made good trans-
portation for lower-income
households. The effect was to
inflate the value of older vehi-
cles remaining in the market
for buyers that can least afford
I try to be as unbiased and
neutral as possible in this col-
umn, but most of the world
doesn't operate that way. Japan
and Korea, the biggest benefi-
ciaries of cash for clunkers in
our country, had their own gov-
ernment-backed similar pro-

grams. Both these countries
are protectionist and sell over
90 percent of new vehicles they
produce in their homeland. The
few American imports that nav-
igate the barriers and are
offered in these countries did-
n't qualify for their programs.
Surprised you probably aren't
and shouldn't be. Maybe the
days of us taking it on the chin
in trade agreements will change
before it is too late.
The individual who sug-
gested this as a topic also said
the government support of GM
and Chrysler and its potential
for a positive outcome should
be discussed. That's a little fur-
ther than I want to go.
We live in a great country
with a healthy selection of
domestic and imported vehi-
cles, as it ought to be. Go out
and take a look if you haven't

Sleep tight, and don't let the

bedbugs bite if you can

Florida News Connection

bugs are making a comeback
in Florida and elsewhere. The
resurgence is attributed to
increased travel, an overall lack
of awareness and the stigma
surrounding these hard-to-elim-
inate pests, according to Dr.
Dini Miller, associate professor
in urban pest management at
Virginia Tech, and a nationally-
recognized expert on bed bugs
and cockroaches.
She says the bloodsuckers
can be found in all kinds of
places, from hotel rooms and
college dorms to apartment
buildings. And now that they're
back, she says, the best form
of prevention is awareness.
"We don't think twice about
putting our bag in the seat next

to us if we go to the movies;
about storing our son's or
daughter's college furniture in
our basement. These are all
ways that bedbugs can get into
the home."
Florida Canine Academy has
trained more than 250 bedbig-
sniffing dogs now working
around the world, but Miller
says mature bedbugs are easy
to spot. They're roughly the size
and shape of an apple seed,
although immature ones can be
much smaller. She adds that
using mattress covers to keep
them on the outside of the bed
is a good idea.
Washing sheets, clothing,
stuffed animals and bags won't
always get rid of them. But, she
says, 10 minutes in a h9t dryer
kills the bed bugs and eggs.
Miller says it's important not

to go after bedbugs with chem-
ical insecticides on your own,
without calling a professional.
The EPA has expressed con-
cerns over exposing children
to such chemicals. But Miller
says there are some non-chem-
ical alternatives, including food-
grade diatomaceous earth.
"Put it out in a light dusting
around the baseboards, edges
of the carpet. You can actually
even put this on a mattress, on
the box springs. It's a very
benign material, but it sticks to
the bedbugs, absorbs the wax
layer on the outside of their
body and basically dries them
She says it's important to
use only the food-grade materi-
al, not the kind of diatomaceous
earth used for pool filters, which

Watch out for'The Bi

i in America

On Sept. 3, Dan Ort
Sr. said in a view-
point, "May God
show mercy on the
United States of America."
I say, "May God please rescue
the United States of America
from greed and corruption."
People working for social
and economic change in
America are not the cause of
America's decline. America is
in decline because politicians
betray the public trust with
their divisiveness and ego-
based rhetoric. America is no
longer the country that our
forefathers dreamed of
because too-many elected
officials refuse to end their
relationships with lobbyists
for special interest groups.
Too many politicians who
claim to worship God use
their God-given talents to
serve themselves and their
political parties, instead of
serving their country.
I doubt that any past presi-
dent has ever inherited prob-
lems of the magnitude that
President Obama has. If the
things this president does or
does not do causes life in
America to get worse instead
of better, we will not re-elect
him. It's that simple.

However, the smokescreen of
nonsense being spewed
throughout the media cannot
hide the fact that perhaps for
the first time ever we have a
president who has the
courage to stand up for us
against the most powerful
people in our country. Against
all odds, he was elected
because average Americans
want change. No one can say
that he has not been trying to
change things.
Common sense dictated
that our president had to bor-
row money and act swiftly to
save a boat called "The
American Economy" from
sinking. He kept our boat
afloat yet is criticized for
increasing our debt. Why was
it OK to increase our debt to
fight wars that we shouldn't
have fought? Why don't we
hear condemnation about the
trillions of tax dollars that
American businesses do not
pay because they keep their
money overseas while receiv-
ing tax deductions for their
expenses as they ship jobs
overseas? Why do we not
hear screaming about the dis-
astrous effects the Bush tax
cuts had on our deficit? Those
tax cuts did very little to help

average folks. Obama is try-
ing to stop these and other
All the power brokers, the
people who own more than 90
percent of America's wealth,
have united in an attempt to
turn us against the very per-
son who clearly is trying to
helpus. These powerful peo-
ple are trying to manipulate
us by provoking our insecuri-
ties and fears. The time to
make the national debt the
top priority has long passed.
It was a crisis that past admin-
istrations ignored. We now
have bigger fish to fry, and
partisan politics is the biggest
monkey on our backs.
Congress and the Senate
want us to forget that. They
are indebted to Big Money.
Hopefully the future will
bring economic stability,
enabling Obama's administra-
tion to start hacking away at
the national debt; but that
time is not now.
. I keep receiving propagan-
da saying that there was a bet:
ter way to fix the broken
health care system, and the
new laws cost too much.' If
that is trte, then change
should have been brought
about a long time ago.

Meanwhile, the taxpayer has
been footing the bill for care
that uninsured people
receive, and the fantastic prof-
its made by insurance and
drug companies comes out of
taxpayers' pockets.
Officials said that they
knew fraud was grossly
depleting Medicare, but they
were denied the resources to
catch the criminals. How
penny-wise and pound- foolish
was that philosophy? Thank
heaven Obama is now going
after lost billions, perhaps tril-
lions of dollars.
I voted for Obama, my
husband voted for McCain.
We respect each other's right
to vote our conscience. Our
passion is for our country, not
a political party. The time has
come when clannish loyalties
must be limited to the sports
arenas, not the political are-
nas. I hope that someday
politicians who can't resist
voting "the party line"
become unemployed. What's
it going to take to make
Democrats and Republicans
work together? Do we need to
be invaded by Martians?
The cozy relationship that
existed up to now between
the oil companies and their
government watchdogs is a
perfect example of corruption
long entrenched in our sys-
tem. Big Business and Wall
Street are crying that "regula-
tion" is going to kill them.
That is nonsensical bellyach-
ing. They did very well for
themselves before "deregula-
tion" was enacted.
Before he died, Ted
Kennedy admitted that he
was wrong to vote against the
health care bill that the

Republican Party had once
introduced. Supposedly it was
very much like the bill that
was recently passed. It's a dis-
gusting shame that the
Democrats united and
opposed that bill, and it is a
disgusting shame that so
many Republicans now have
united to oppose every single
effort our present president
has made to help us.
Honestly, can every single
one of Obama's ideas be bad?
False statements are being
circulated in the media that
are absolutely ridiculous.
Politics has always been a
dirty game, but recent events
bring it to a new low and it is
no accident. It is a deliberate
attempt to distract us from
the important issues. Much of
the media is controlled by the
same wealthy and powerful
people who have created the
mess that our country now is
in. It is to their advantage that
we get caught up in the non-
sense that is being spewed
before us, changing the politi-
cal scene into a trashy reality
TV show. We the American
people are the ones being
cheated by this manipulation
of the media and yellow jour-
nalism. It is used to distract
us from the fact that our gov-
ernment is controlled by spe-
cial interest groups.
The president'is a wealthy
man and I doubt that he is out
to crucify the rich. He does,
however, feel that he can
afford to pay more in the way
of taxes because he has more
resources than the average
American. My impression is
that he enjoys the lifestyle of
a wealthy man, but thinks the
average American deserves

more of a fair shake. Before
we buy into any of the ram-
pant propaganda about him or
his ideas, let's remember to
look back on history when
American children died work-
ing in coal mines, millions of
working people were
deprived of a living wage, peo-
ple who protested the system
were sometimes shot dead in
cold blood and people died in
fires working in sweatshops
that didn't even have safe fire
escapes. Greedy people have
always taken advantage of the
little guy whenever they could
get away with it. Without gov-
ernment interference to pro-
tect average citizens, too
many big fish will eat the little
fish. Capitalism is the best
system available to civiliza-
tion, but it needs oversight
and regulation.
Big fish swim around us
saying that they are taking
care of us and we don't need
government to be "watch-
dogs." That's the philosophy
that has ruined our country.
That greedy big fish will try
to keep you dependent.on oil
and then rob you at the gas
station so that his profits soar
to unconscionable heights.
That greedy big fish will
make you pay more for your
drugs and health care than
people in other countries do,
and he will laugh all the way
to the bank with his stock
profits. That greedy big fish
will turn a blind eye to your
needs, but will flash you a big
smile and tell you he has your
best interest at heart as he
sharpens his knife to fillet you
for his dinner.
I feel sorry for the God-
fearing politician that goes
along to get along, but that
strategy is not working. I fear
that too many greedy big fish
and the politicians who are
either duped or controlled by
them have no fear of God.
Greedy big fish live in all
political ponds, and some-
times the person who makes
the most noise is the one that
'lj6iiie will follow. That 'is a
S'didgerous factthat we all'
must remember.

evening. Summer's burn doesn't seem qdite as
hot as it did yesterday. Or is it only wishful
thinking, the product of a body weary of sweat-
soaked clothes which stick to it like chewing
gum left on a sidewalk? No, there's definitely a
change in the air. If you find a quiet place out-
doors in the evening to sit and observe, you'll
notice it too.
The cicadas trill like a million tiny bagpipers
in the oak trees around my house. Their slight-
ly berserk melody rises and falls in choruses
and then starts all over again. The sun is
slumping low, casting its last pale rays of light
over the marsh beyond my deck. I sit and
watch the vivid green of oak leaves, palm
fronds, pine needles and red bay foliage lose
some of its color in the fading light. Pale gray
strands of Spanish moss sway like an old man's
beard in a baby's breath of breeze that teases
with a hint of the impending change of sea-

Dusk creeps ever closer.
Day slowly but surely begins
Joe Palmer to take its leave. I close my
eyes and lean my head
against the back of my big wooden chair. The
last of the cicadas pack up their instruments
for the evening and are replaced by timid
sounding crickets. First one, then another,
until they all sing the same song. Sleep. Sleep.
When I open my eyes, nearly all the color
.has bled from the trees around my deck.
Green is giving way to the night colors of gray
and black, humbled by the appearance of a
monarch moon that will tolerate no competi-

and gaudier attire.
I prefer the ending of the day to its begin-
ning, the dying of the light to its birth. There's
something almost mystical about the way that
the light at the end of the day stealthily disap-
pears like a cat leaving the room. Crowfoot, the
Blackfoot warrior and orator, described it as a
vital function of life.itself: "What is life? It is the
flash of the firefly in the night. It is the breath
of the buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little
shadow which runs across the grass and loses
itself in the sunset."
The beginning of the day brings anticipa-
tion. The end of the day brings rest and a time
to pause and reflect, asking ourselves, how can
we live better tomorrow than we lived today?
The end of the day is surrender, the tacit,
unspoken admission that there is always a
beginning and an end, and that the end, far
from being a thing to be feared, is really just a
continuation of a journey.
The trees and Spanish moss on the trees
are now completely black. The sky grows dark.
Daytime is done. My stomach's growling for
supper. The first bright glints of light will soon
become a treasure chest of jewels dumped out
and spread across the heavens.
This is thetime of day I love best, the soft,
silent coda of dusk. I stand up and stretch
before heading indoors.
Sleep, the crickets plaintively urge from the
grass. Sleep. And soon I shall.


After reading the letter Sept. 15 con-
cerning poiver outages on Amelia
Island I slowly went from a state of
benign interest to one of seething
anger. I'll say what most of the people
in the electrical industry can't say on
pain of being disciplined by their man-
agement when they are verbally
attacked by someone like (the letter
For her information, there have
been linemen electrocuted due to the
improper installation of generators by
people that are ignorant of the rules
and regulations regarding such instal-
lations. Her statement to the wife of a
lineman being "afraid that he'll get
hurt, let him find another job" really
shows how concerned she is about
others. For her information there is a
looming and critical shortage of people
willing to forsake the comfort of an
air-conditioned office to come out and
be highly paid with us linemen in the
mud and heat.
I have spent over 38 years ensuring
that people like you have electricity
available when, you unthipkingly flip
that:,vall switch. -I have.been highly
paid for working an endless number of
16-hour shifts in the hot, humid Florida
days and nights to get power restored
to entire cities here after a hurricane
visited us. Prior to coming to Florida I
was highly paid to work 20 to 30 hours
straight in zero-degree weather to put
poles and wires back up to get your
heat back on after ice storms devas-
tated the electrical system.
Do you like those afternoon thun-
derstorms that rumble through Florida
on our hot summer afternoons? I hate
them. They usually mean that I'll be
highly paid while I wade through mud
and water to get your lights back on. If
you love nature you'll really love the
grunt of an alligator in the darkness
when you're standing in knee-deep
water looking for a downed power line.
Hip waders versus an alligator are no
These are just a few examples of the
extremes of what we highly paid peo-
ple endure while we are working our
normal cold, windy or hot, humid days
to ensure that your lights are on 99
percent of the time (actually according
to Department of Energy statistics,
you are on more like 99.999 percent of
the time) so that you can enjoy your
latte while you're sitting in your air-
conditioned home watching the weath-
er on your color television and telling
someone how glad you are that you're
not out there in that nasty stuff. BTW,
if you think it is hot you should expe-
rience a 25,000-volt flash to ground
sometime. It will really change your
perception of lightning in a bottle.
Also for your information I have
been to Baghdad as well as a lot of lit-
tle mud hut villages in the Third World
that have never had electricity. The
spoiled people that want to spend
$7,000 on a generator so that they won't
be inconvenienced for a couple of
hours should do a little math and cal-
culate how much rice that will buy to
feed people that live on one bowl of
rice per day. Then think about walking
two miles to get water to cook the rice.
Try not to complain about one of
the best electrical systems on the face
of this planet. You really don't ha've
any idea just how good you've got it.
Jim Ramage

At last week's city commission
meeting, I did a poorjob of explaining
what seems to many a logical approach
to the possibilities in planning an addi-
tional city boat ramp.
The facts are these:
Fernandina has been given
approximately $200,000 to plan a new
boat launch ramp. This is part of a
state program to improve public
access to water. Once the planning
(site selection, design, etc.) is com-
pleted, the cities that have received
these planning'grants may decide
Whether to apply for a construction
grant to build what has been planned.
The state may, or may not, award con-
struction grants.
A site immediately south of the
Shave.Bridge can be made into a good
area for launching boats. There is con-
cern that river current is too swift in
that area. Interestingly, because of the
shape of the river at that point, there
is virtually no current at the shore-
line on a flood tide, and not so much
as one might expect on an ebb tide.
The current'runs at approximately
five knots at ebb in the center of the
channel, under the bridge, but less
than two knots at the edge in the pro-
jected launch site. Would it be better
if there were no current? Yes. Can we
design around, it? Absolutely. We have
tested the worst-case situations.
There is no thought or plan for
building boat rack storage downtown,
by the city or anyone else.
Significant population growth will
occur in the western portion of the
county. A launch ramp at the entrance
to the island will siphon off some por-
tion of the truck/boat/trailer traffic
before it comes downtown.
The state is going to spend a lot
of money on water access. If we don't
use our share, another city will. We are
not going to get money back by not
spending it.
The city marina has a working
launch ramp which will remain in use
for the foreseeable future. It is proba-
bly not capable of handling the ever-
increasing size of trailerable boats
(some now approach 40 feet with more
than 1,000 horsepower). It will be pru-
dent to have its present condition ana-
lyzed for load carrying capacity and, if
necessary, limit the size of craft
allowed to use it. This analysis has
bearing on the requirements for a new
ramp, so it can be done with a part of
the existing grant money.
Another part of the planning
money ought to be spent planning a
ramp to the south of the city property
downtown. This would include analy-
sis of building a rip-rap seawall (like
the jetties at the St. Marys inlet)
between the marina and the Cook
property which, when placing the mud
flat separating the property behind
the new jetty might make a good place
for a launch ramp, and, maybe more
importantly, increase water flow
through the marina significantly reduc-
ing the need for dredging which is
now an unsustainable requirement.
In short, we have been given
money with which we can begin to
plan for evolving waterfront needs.
There isn't money for construction'of
anything now, nor would we know how
to spend it if we had it. But we ought
to work at plan development and many
hope our commissioners will clearly
direct the city manager to move ahead





with this in spite of the muddled dis-
course I offered the commission last
Lynn Williams
Fernandina Beach

Boat ramps
After reading "6 alternate sites for
city boat ramp" (Sept. 10), I have to
wonder if anyone on the waterfronts
committee actually owns a trailered
boat and if any of them ever use the city
marina ramp. What a joke to be wast-
ing time discussing these ridiculous,
costly ideas!
Anyone who has traveled by boat to
Sthe Shave Bridge area would cross
that option off the list immediately.
The "seventh option" of doing noth-
ing sounds like the best idea so far -
except for my eighth option: Fix the
Dee Dee Bartels North End Boat
Ramp! Hasn't anyone on the committee
ever questioned why local boaters don't
use the north boat ramp? It's so poor-
ly designed, with a major flaw, that
experienced boaters know better than
to risk using it. There's plenty of park-
ing, clean restrooms and a beautiful
gazebo. But the ramp needs a serious
re-design. If it were safe to use, many
of us would happily drive up there and
relieve some of the so-called conges-
tion and problems at the city marina.
Instead of dumping money into murky
waters, spend it on the north boat ramp
and get the job done right! That's clear-
ly the best, most cost-effective option.

Constitution Day
It was interesting to read ("Facts,
not opinions," Sept. 10) in light of his
claim of the importance of facts. As a
former high school teacher, it appears
he joins a long, distinguished list of
those that did not know Sept. 17 is
Constitution ayd Citizenship Day. That
list includes school principals, teachers,
school board members but, most
importantly, students currently
enrolled in Nassau County public
schools. If (the letter writr) had taken
the time out to speak to a member of
Nassau Patriots Tea Party for clarifi-
cation, he would have learned the fact
that not only is Sept. 17 Constitution
Day and Citizenship Day but, specifi-
cally, Public Law 108-447, dated Dec. 8,
2004, stipulates:
(b) Each educational institution that
receives federal funds
for a fiscal year shall hold an edu-
cational program on the I united

States Constitution on Sept 17 of
such year for the studentsserved by
the educational institution.
Further this law set forth the fol-
lowing in U.S. Code:
(c) Title 36 of the United States
Code, is amended- 106. Constitution
Day and Citizenship Day
(a) Designation. Sept. 17 is des-
ignated as Constitution Day and
Citizenship Day.
(b) Purpose. Constitution Day
and Citizenship Day commemorate
the formation and signing on Sept. 17,
1787, of the Constitution and recog-
nize all who, by coming of age or by
naturalization, have become citizens.
(c) Proclamation. -The President
may issue each year a proclamation
calling on United States government
officials to display the flag of the United
States on all government buildings on
Constitution Day and Citizenship Day
and inviting the people of the United
States to observe Constitution Day and
Citizenship Day, in schools and church-
es, or other suitable places, with appro-
priate ceremonies.
(d) State and Local Observances. -
The civil and educational authorities of
states, counties, cities and towns are
urged to make plans for the proper
observance of Constitution Day
and Citizenship Day and for the com-
plete instruction of citizens in their
responsibilities and opportunities as
citizens of the United States and of
the State and locality in which they
He would also have learned that
part of our mission statement is
educatee to equip," and it was with that
in mind that, on learning there was no
formal plan in the schools to honor
Sept. 17, we approached Dr. John Ruis
with an idea of utilizing professionals
in the community who were willing to
give of their time to make presenta-
tions. One of the individuals, Mr. Steve
Eklund, travels around the country
speaking on behalf of the Joe Foss
Institute specifically on this subject
and it was one of his Powerpoint pre-
sentations that the group had planned
to use.
There was no insidious intent on
behalf of Nassau Patriots Tea Party,
in fact, should the letter writer so
choose, our Oct. 8 event will be on the
Constitution. The Honorable John
Crawford and local author Jesse Duke
will be speaking and I invite all to
attend. You might be surprised to find
"a diverse group of men and women
who have the maturity to put aside per-
sonal beliefs and egos" for the purpose
of aiding their fledgling country back

to its once prosperous and mighty self.
That, I might add, is a fact!

I read where the city commission-
ers were considering a 2.5 percent pay
raise for city employees.
At this difficult time I am appalled
and disappointed that the elected com-
missioners would give a 2.5 percent
pay raise to anyone. Social Security
did not give low-income people a 2.5
percent pay raise.
With a million-dollar pension plan
and budget problems, the city com-
missioners need to cut spending. Use
furlough days, do whatever it takes to
cut the city budget.
As long as unemployment stays at
the present rate, business will not flour-
ish. All indications are that unemploy-
ment will not soon go away. As my
husband and I were coming to the
island, I began to notice all the prop-
erties that are for sale.
This difficult time is not the time to
raise anyone's salary or to raise the
millage rate on the people who are
paying the taxes. The people who are
paying the taxes support the city and
city government.
My solution: cut the budgets! All
taxpayers are having to cut theirs.

Blows to head lead to premature brain aging

The NFL prides itself on bone
jarring hits. ESPN has a feature it
refers to as "Jacked Up," when a
player is hit so hard he comes off
his feet. Nothing gets the crowd
off its feet faster than one of these
hits. But in many cases the player
is not so quick to get up.
Concussions are often the end
result and, while many players
have returned to play during the
course of the game after a concus-
sion, these hits can have long-last-
ing repercussions. Now NFL offi-
cials and sports medicine
physicians are taking a harder
look at the long-term effects that
these repeated hits may have on
the player.
HBO's Real Sports recently
focused on former NFL player
Andre Waters, who had a success-
ful 12-year career which ended in
1995. He was known to have had
many concussions during his
career. Having suffered with
depression for a number of years,
Waters shot and killed himself in
November last year at the age of
Real Sports then introduced
the viewer to Chris Nowinsky, a
Harvard-educated biotech con-
sultant who has been studying the
link between concussion and
long-term memory loss, dementia
and depression.
Nowinsky is just 28 and is
already battling depression and
memory loss, having suffered
many concussions during his
playing career at Harvard.
Nowinsky arranged for a
pathologic study of Waters' brain
by Pittsburgh physician Bandon
Umala, who found that it resem-


bled that of an
80-year-old man.
Umala had also
studied the
brains of former
NFL players
Mike Webster
and Terry Long,
both who had
died prior to age
50, and showed
severe degenera-
tive changes sim-
ilar to Waters'
Umala sur-
mises repeated
blows to the

head lead to premature aging of
the brain, a belief shared by Dr.
Robert Cantu, a leading expert in
sports concussions.
For years, he has been evaluat-
ing players with similar problems.
Cantu sites research that shows
NFL players who had had three
concussions were three times
more likely to suffer from depres-
sion and five times more likely to
have early Alzheimer's disease.
Some players can't sign their
name, can't complete basic
hygiene tasks and some struggle
to dress themselves.
NFL players are sul)posed to
be gladiators and, despite the fact
they may be hurt, there is this
undercurrent of pressure for
them to return to the field of play.
If a player returns to play too soon
after a concussion, then the risks
of a second concussion increase
According to the NFL, half of
all players who sustain a concus-

sion during a game actually go
back in for further play, including
some 25 percent who are actually
knocked out cold.
Cantu believes a player's risks
of later problems increase if a
player returns to play prior to
being completely over a concus-
sion. Even more frightening, the
risk of head injury-related death
increases dramatically as well if a
player returns to competition too
quickly and suffers another con-
cussion, known as "Second
Impact Syndrome."
A University of North Carolina
study directly related 17 deaths
over a 13-year time span to repeat
concussion injury.
Many blamed the NFL for not
doing enough to help protect its
current and former players, but
the NFL has taken a more proac-
tive approach this year with play-
ers, coaches and staff members to
address the management of con-
cussions in the NFL.
The NFL held a medical con-
ference in June on the subject of
concussions. It was attended by
team physicians and athletic train-
ers from every NFL team and by
active players and medical repre-
sentatives of the NFL Players
Association. The conference
reviewed the current medical and
scientific research and included
presentations by doctors and sci-
entists from within and outside
the NFL.
An informational pamphlet on
concussions was sent to players
and their families, which
describes the symptoms of con-
cussions, what NFL players
should look for in themselves or a

teammate if they suspect a possi-
ble concussion and what NFL
families should know about con-
The NFL also established a
confidential hotline to report a
player being forced to practice or
play against medical advice. The
hotline underscores the league's
priority on player safety over com-
petitive concerns.
The League and the Players'
Association Medical Advisors
want players, coaches and med-
ical staffs to follow strict conser-
vative guidelines governing treat-
ment. If an NFL player sustains a
loss of consciousness, as deter-
mined by the team medical staff,
he should not return to the same
game or practice. A player should
be completely asymptomatic and
have normal neurological test
results, including mental status
testing at rest and after physical
exertion, before returning to play.
Neuropsychological testing has
been expanded for all NFL play-
ers, and any player who sustains a
concussion will be re-wested again
later in the season for further fol-

Fish kills natural occcurences in Florida's rivers, lakes

High temperatures and
cloudy rainy days can spell
trouble for fish in Florida's
rivers and lakes. These condi-
tions can cause fish kills, nat-

damage to the ecosystem or
fish populations.

Many factors can con-
tribute to a fish kill. Some fish
kills are complex and involve
a variety of factors that may
not be easily discernable.
However, most common caus-
es of kills in brackish estuar-
ies, freshwater lakes and
man-made retention ponds
are well understood by scien-
Fish kills are commonly
caused by weather-related
factors. Sudden temperature

fluctuations or extreme tem-
peratures can result in fish
kills any time of the year. Hot
weather during the summer
months can cause fish kills
because warm water holds
less oxygen than cold water.
In addition, a lack of rain dur-
ing hot-weather months low-
ers the water levels in the sys-
tem, heating the water and .
further depleting the oxygen
in the system.
Fish kills also can occur

during extended periods with
little sunshine. The process
leading to these types of die-
offs begins with overcast
skies and rainy weather.
It is important for Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission scientists to
keep track of the location and
extent of fish kills. Residents
cap report fish, kills in natural
water bodies at MyFWC.com
or call the FWC Fish Kill
Hotline at 800-636-0511.
