City gives FPU

new deal to pay

for tainted site

News Leader
In order to resolve a dispute over
property the city sold to Florida Public
Utilities .in 2012, city commissioners
have approved several changes to the
FPU franchise agreement.
The franchise amendments and
other conditions were set forth in a let-
ter of agreement between the city and
FPU, and approved by City Attorney
Tammi Bach.
Commissioner Ed Boner voted:
against the first reading of the ordi-
nance Monday, saying he needed
more information on the franchise
changes and new conditions.
SCity officialswere given notice in
.February that solid waste was found
-on an 8-acre site at the Fernandina
.Beach airport that FPU bought from
the city-for $730,000 in 2012. FPU said
in February that remediation costs
would be $400,000.
SFPU attorney James Middleton
- claims the city is liable for remediation
: f the landfill site because it hadknowl-
edge of the landfill and did not dis-
close it.
According to Middleton, the city's'
former Public Works director Jim
Higginbotham knew about solid waste
in the area in 2001, as evidenced by '
communication between
Higginbotham and First Coast Moving
& Storage, which was planning to lease
some of the 8 acres in question. An
April: 2001 letter from First Coast
Movirj e. Si4 owners Steve and
Mary Stubbs to then-city manager
Andy Barton stated Higginbotham
said the solid waste would "cost too
m-uch to ctan utp and .(Higginbotham)
will not touch it."
Middleton said, in order to keep
the dispute out of court, FPU will cover
all remediation and handling costs of
the landfill in exchange for changes in
the city's electrical code and franchise
agreement with FPU.
FPU also has asked for a 10-year
extension to its franchise with the city,
from 2033 to 2043.

'The city had few options
and... this was the least
painful way to handle it.'

The cost of remediation has
climbed to $700,000, Middleton said,
which includes environmental attor-
neys, engineering and nmionitoring,
excavation, dewatering, importing
clean fill and exporting to Camden
County, Ga., as well as business dis-
ruption costs. .
One condition set forth in the letter
of agreement with FPU is the waiver
of a payment from FPU to the city for
street lighting, which amounts to
$75,000 this fiscal year and $25,000
the next.
A change to the electrical code, as
part of the agreement, means city
property owners who get new under-
ground electrical service connections
will be responsible for the expense
from the right-of-way to their proper-
ty. According to City Attorney Bach,
that section of the electrical code was
previously silent on who should pay
those costs.
Amendments to the franchise
agreement include changes to four
A "performance incentive" sec-
tion has been deleted, which previ-
ously meant FPU would pay the city if
customer electrical rates were higher
than rates set by the federal Consumer
Price Index in a .five-year period.
Accordinpg to Bach, this sect ion is
never been used by the city, and rates
are always set by the Florida Public
Service Commission.
*.Another deleted section involves
FPU informing the city on wholesale
suppliers. According to Bach, delet-
ing this section would mean FPU
"would get a better deal because it

should be completed today.

Teens: Tobacco ruins lives

Community Newspapers
Fernandina Beach High School students visited West
Nassau to talk about tobacco use among their peers.
Students Working Against Tobacco team members
Justin Gilyard and Noah Emmons delivered a slide pres-
entation on the dangers of tobacco use and how tobacco
companies target teens during a Callahan Town Council
meeting June 17.
SWAT team member Abby Bayacal joined Gilyard and
Emmons when they delivered the same message to the
Hilliard Town Council on June 20.
SWATF is Florida's "statewide youth organization, work-
ing to mobilize educate and equip Florida youth to revolt
against and deglamorize big tobacco. SWAT is a united
movement of empowered youth, working toward a tobac-
co-ftree future," according to Jennifer Emmons, tobacco
prevention specialist with the county health department.
The program is funded through Florida's Bureau of
Tobacco Prevention Program. Tobacco sales and adver-

rising is regulated through the Family Smoking Prevention
and Tobacco Control Act, which became a law on June 22,
It gives "the Fopod and Drug Administration the author-
ity to regulate the manufacture, distribution and mar-
keting of tobacco products to protect public health."
According to a slide presentation by the SWAT mem-
bers, "Under the new law, the sale of cigarettes contain-
ing any distinguishing flavors other than menthol is ille-
gal." The ban does not affect smokeless tobacco like
Snus, c j !, .-I- .! .-il cigars, cigarillos or new dissolvable
products such as pellets, sticks and strips absorbed in the
During Gilyard's Callahan visit, he spoke of the health
risks from hookah smoking.

nicotine, 11 times more carbon monoxide and 11,i,1,11,i -

Beach do's and

don'ffts for dogs

For the News-Leader

With the weather heating,
up, it's time to start checking
out some dog friendly beach-
es with your four-legged
friend. For most
dogs, getting to run .
around in the sand,
dip into the waves
and fetch balls out .'
of the water is the T !
best day ever. Here ..
are some tips to -.
ensure that you and
your dog have a fun and safe
beach experience.
Check with your local
beaches before you pack up
the dog, since not all beach-
es allow them. Call ahead or
visit the beach's website for
If allowed, find out if they
need to be on leash or can
roam free. Bring a long leash
no matter what, and only let
them be without it if you are
sure they will respond to
your commands. Other
dogs, people, certain scents,
birds, etc., may catch their
attention and cause them to
tune you out, which could be
a recipe for disaster (no one
wants a dog fight).
Never, ever leave your
dog unattended. Even a well-
trained dog can get distract-
ed; pay extra attention to
your surroundings and any
potential situations that may
cause your dog to run off.
Follow all of the rules set by
the beach. You don't want to
be the reason dogs aren't
allowed anymore.
If this is the first time
your dog will be swimming,
read up on his breed just to
be sure. For example,
sharpeis tend to be afraid of
If he isn't diving right in,
don't force anything. He may
feel more comfortable if you
head in first and call him. If
you're unsure, purchase a
dog life vest to bring with
Depending on where you
are, summer at the beach
can bring about two
extremes: heat from the sun
and a cold ocean. Pay atten-
tion to how your dog is act-
ing and responding through-
out the day, since there is
potential for either heat
stroke or hypothermia.
Some signs of heat stroke
in a dog include: Rapid panti-
ng; bright red tongue; thick,
sticky saliva; weakness; vom-
iting; diarrhea.
If you think that your (log
has heat stroke take the fol-
lowing actions immediately:
Move the pet into the
shade and apply cool (not
cold) water all over their
body to gradually lower their
Apply ice packs or cool
towels to the head, neck and
chest only.
Allow the pet to drink
small amounts of cool water
or lick ice cubes.
Then take him to the


nearest vet.
Some signs of hypother-
mia in a dog include:
Lethargy; weakness; shiver-
ing; muscle stiffness; diffi-
culty breathing; fixed and
dilated pupils.
If you think your dog has
hypothermia, take
Sthe following
actionsos immediate-
y: Wrap your clog

Bring extra bottled water
and leave them out in the
sun as this warm water can
be applied to your dog to
bring his body temperature
back up.
If your dog has not
stopped shivering and has
continued lethargy, bring
him to the nearest vet.
Dogs can't tell us when
they're in pain and not feel-
ing good. If you notice any-
thing out of the ordinar-y get
him out of the elements
To prevent heat stroke
bring lots of fresh, cool
water they can drink. A
spray bottle with cool water
also helps in temperature
regulation. You can also use
it to clean the sand and salt
water from his paws, which
can cause irritation and dry
out those sensitive pads.
Also bring an umbrella he
can hang out under.
To make sure that
hypothermia doesn't strike,
bring lots of towels to snug-
gle him in and remove the
excess cold salt water.
There are hundreds of
beaches in the U.S. and
Canada that allow dogs, but
compared to the number of
beaches there are, this isa
small percentage. Follow
these rules (in addition to
the beach's rules) and you'll
make sure you can bring

Don't let your dog out of
your sight. Paying attention
and being proactive will go a
long way in protecting you
and your dog.
Don't leave a mess
behind! Don't count on the
beach supplying waste bags;
bring your own and be dili-
gent about cleaning up.
Do make sure your dog's
vaccinations are current and
that he's wearing the proper
ID. Keep your vet's number
on hand just in case some-
thing happens.
Do check the ocean for

"In 2001 my grandfather,
Clarence Walker, died from

"And I really want to spare any
other family I can from that
kind of pain and that kind of
grief if I can."
Emmons said that his moth-

SWAT member, encouraged
him to speak to other teens
about tobacco prevention.

'That's not right," she said.
'That's for ice cream and chil-

put it into tobacco."
The teens asked the respec-
tive town councils to approve a
resolution "urging tobacco
retailers to adopt a voluntary
retail policy" prohibiting sales
and marketing of candy-flavored
tobacco in Callahan and Hilliard.
Both councils unanimously
approved the resolutions.
Although the resolutions do

A section that gives pref-

deleted. Bach said the dele-

loss in potential city properly
taxes if the generators are
built in the county.
The last section to be
deleted states FPU must give
the city "the right of first
refusal" if FPU receives an
acceptable offer for purchase
of its assets within Nassau
County. According to Bach,
deletion of this section would
not adversely affect the city
because the city "has always
had eminent domain rights"
over FPU.
Bach said the city sent
claims to several of the city's
insurance carriers to cover
the costs of remediation, but
that "all have denied cover-

Taking command of Fernandina, Fort Clinch

For the News-Leader

This article is from the
presentation delivered at the
Amelia Island Museum of
History on April 19 in the
monthly series "3rd on 3rd
The Florida Militia began
occupying Fort Clinch in
April 1861, but Gen. Robert E.
Lee (USMA 1829) soon sur-
veyed the area and deemed it
indefensible by the CSA. The
Lincoln-Scott blockade, the
U.S. Navy's "Anaconda Plan"
to.strangle Southern ports,
- made this increasingly evi-
dent. The port of Fernandina
was included, along with
other Northern-controlled
sites in Florida: the river town
of Jacksonville, St. Augustine
and forts Taylor and
Jefferson; and Fort Pickens in
Pensacola, which traded
shots across the channel with
the rebel held fort on the ,
mainland, but with little dam-
age to either and no signifi-
cant outcome. To the west,
theU.S. Navy also controlled
the entrances to Mobile Bay
and New Orleans.
Locally, the South Atlantic
Blockading Squadron fea-

I tured Union gun-
PRT boats deployed
mrA O under the com-
TWO. mandof
Samuel FE
DuPont. In'December 1861,
USS Bienville was the first to
steam into St. Andrew's
Sound above Cumberland
Island, and in January 1862,
UQSS Keystone State observed
rebel batteries on both sides
of the St. Marys channel, but
those proved ineffective and
were soon abandoned. The
Stars and Stripes was raised
over the north end of
Cumberland atop its light-
house on Sunday, March 2,
1862. The U.S. squadron was
then dispatched to
Fernandina port to cut off
fleeing rebels, numbering 22
gunboats and six transports,
including USS McClellan with
a brigade of Marines aboard.
Ironically, that month.
McClellan was relieved by
Lincoln in favor of Henry
Halleck who was appointed
general-in-chief in July 1862
(Ulysses S. Grant was
Lincoln's top general by
March 1864.)
On Amelia Island, rebel
civilians and the Florida

Militia began evacuating
inland, the very week of the
famous battle 600 miles to the
north in Hampton Roads fea-
turing history's first ironclad
clash between USS Monitor
and CSAVirginia (USS
Merrimac). On March 3,
1862, under the command of
Brig-Gen. Horatio G. Wright,
joint operations with the Navy
and the Army Expeditionary
Corps including the 97th
Pennsylvania Volunteers -
Fort Clinch and Fernandina
were occupied with little or
no resistance. The American
34-star flag was hoisted over
Fort Clinch that day by Navy
Lt. White from the gunship
USS Ottawa, "the first of the
national forts on which the
ensign of the Union has
resumed its proper place," as
succinctly stated by historian
Lewis G..Schmidt in 1991
(The Civil War in Florida). In
ongoing blockading squadron
action, USS Susquehanna
"deployed to Nassau Sound to
cut off possible escape there
and USS Mohican, DuPont's
flagship, sailed into
Fernandina harbor. The cap-
tain of USS Pawnee reported,
however, that all the gunboats
had grounded on the low tide

... the river bar, oyster beds,
old ballast piles?
All except USS Ottawa,
which gave chase to the last
train out of town, David
Yulee's Florida Railroad. The
train, with passenger and bag-
gage cars and a flat car with
furniture, also had two other
engines in tow, as it chugged
on down the line four miles
toward the bridge, about
where A1A crosses Amelia
River today. It was fired
upon by Ottawa, which
missed until tlie train crossed
the river bridge. Then it took
a hit on the flat car, killing two
rebels. The brakeman
unhooked the damaged flat
car and the train took off,
escaping. But the Union
Army had two captured loco-
motives, which they ran back
into town. Yulee and the oth-
ers continued on the run, but
he was soon captured and
was imprisoned for the dura-
tion of the war for his active
part in the insurrection. At
this time the fleeing rebel
steamer Darlington, with civil-
ians, provisions and war mate-
rial aboard, was captured ifj
Fernandina waters, and was
then ironically enlisted in the
Union blockade.*
With U.S. Federal forces
occupying Amelia Island,
' housing f.i hundreds& ofh1'1','
troops was essential. The
enlisted men set up camp in
SFort Clinch while the officers
claimed as theirs the aban-
dQned antebellum homes of

Fernandina's elite, including
David Yulee's on the corner
of Alachua and 3rd Street (no
longer standing.) This was
Wright's home and HQ, Third
Brigade, Expeditionary.
Corps, in March and April of
1862. Other occupied private
residences, that spring and for
the duration of the war includ-
ed the Williams House on
South Ninth (built in 1856),
another Union HQ and
Federal hospital; the
, .Hedges/Waas home on South
- Seventh (1857); that of the
Rev. Archibald Baker, 112
North Sixth (1859); the
Lesesne estate at 415 Centre
(1860); and the Florida House
.Inn, 20-22 South Third, built
by Florida Railroad Co.
Out at Fort Clinch con-
struction had begun in 1847
but was unfinished by. 1862 -
the original bricks still seen
today were of Florida and
Savannah grey clay. Through
the end of the war in 1865, the
1st NY Volunteer Engineers
used Hudson River and
Delaware River red to com-
plete the brick-faced earthen
ramparts, and the U.S.

over by General H.G. Wright
to Lt. Col. H. Bisbee, 9th
Maine Volunteers. Wright left
Fernandina aboard the gun-
boat USS Cosmopolitan
bound for the HQ at Hilton
Head, and shortly returned to
the Eastern campaigns.
By late 1862, Gen. Horatio
G. Wright was heading the
Department of the Ohio
(Union departments and
armies were identified by the
watersheds they command-
ed), and the -Army of the
Potomac from 1862-63. On
Jan. 1,1863, President
Lincoln's Emancipation
Proclamation became law, as
he freed the slaves (in the
rebel states only). After two
years of bloodshed, this only
set the stage for the Battle of
Gettysburg on July 1-3,1863,
in which Wright served as a
combat engineering officer
responsible for battlements,
bridges and the like. Then he
pursued the enemy back into
' Virginia in late July. Toward
the end of the year, on Nov.
19, Lincoln uttered his ,
Gettysburg address, possibly
the greatest single piece of
American Literatmu', ever: "...
that we here highly resolve ;
that these dead shall not have
died in vain that this nation,

SCalculating the cost of humanity

First. the roof leaked and had to be
Irepl)aced. Cha-chinlg. While we were in Ireland,
a pip in t1ie kitchen sink burst. But for quick
iliTVi-ntion by O1ur house sittCer, the results
would'v be ln catastrophic. Since thIe repair
job was out of 11my pay grade, 1 hired a plumber
lo come fix the problem, which, by then,
included installing a new kitchen sink my wife
wanted. Cha-ching.
While the roofing crew was here, the irriga-
tion system in the front yard sprang a leak. A
lawn irrigation specialist is here today fixing
not only that problem, but several others inad-
ve(rtently caused by someone who should've
had an irrigation specialist install the system.
TIhe meter is running. Cha-ching.
Two weeks ago, my wile and I were moving
our sailboat to a new location at Amelia Island
Yacht Basin right around the corner from us. I
lost steering trying to get into our slip. After
several (ense moments of near panic while I
frantically tried to avoid dinging anyone else's
boat, I managed lo get Adventure -which I
momentarily thought of renaming Miss
Adventure into another slip and summon
assistance from marina personnel. I hopped off
the boat and asked my wife to toss me a line to
make Adventure last to the dock. By then,
she'd drifted a few feet from the dock: The first
line cas t fell short and she tried again. The sec-
ond cast fell short. The third cast was a little
short but close enough that I judged I could
sately reach out and grab it. Instead, I fell into
the( drink with my brand new iPhone in my

pocket. Alas, it didn't have a
waterproof case.
The next day, I made ian
appointment with the Apple
store the other side ol
Jacksonville to getl a new one,
which I knew would be pricey
since my contract isn't up. A
word about going to the
Apple store: You have to
make an appointment. If
you're late, the computer
drops you and you just have
to take your chances when
you gel there. I miscalculated
my travel time and proceeded

to drive too fast in a vain attempt to make it.
Pushing my already bad luck, I did the stupid
and passed a black sports utility vehicle with
dark tinted windows that fairly screamed
unmarked police car. Worse, when I pulled
back in front of it, I cut it a little close. You can
surmise what happened next. To make a long
story short, I got the first speeding ticket I've
had in about 20 years. The illegal lane change
earned me a warning. Now I have a fine to pay.
I finally made it to the Apple store and lucki-
ly got'seen pretty quickly. But the price to
replace my cell phone was a little more than
the $1501 for some reason expected. I gri-
maced as the cell phone geek swiped my debit
card for a mere $225. Cha-ching..
Last Thursday morning, I awoke with the

beginnings of an upper respiratory ailment.
Being an asthmatic, I'm supposed to jump on
these things at the first wheezy symptoms. But I
didn't and by the next morning was dog-sick. I
ended UIp in tIhe doctor's office feverish,
morose and feeling generally crappy and got a
prescription for the bronchitis I'd developed.
Cha-ching. I left the doctor's office cursing. myI
run of bad luck which I'd been assured would
get better after three incidents but it didn't -
and headed for the pharmacy. Cha-ching.
I was bemoaning my lousy hick when 1 saw
a middle-aged woman in the middle of the road
crying and beseeching passersby to hell) her.
Something inside me clicked and I pulled over.
Sobbing, she told me she was from North
Carolina and had been doing yard work and
now her weed-eater was dead and she was
broke. She needed a ride to a nearby help cen-
ter. Throwing caution and good sense to the
wind, I gave her a lift and the couple of bucks
in my wallet. Yeah, I know, probably 1 got suck-
ered. Maybe not. Who knows?
But this I do know. We think our lot in life
stinks. Then we chance upon someone whose
circumstances really do suck. Slopping to helpl)
the lady could've had tragic consequences, I
know. But sometimes, maybe we have to
answer the call of the heart even if it night
turIn out to be a wrong number.

This was the final straws requiring
Janet Miller, in her quest to better her

border on being nothing but political
bullies! Let her alone let her lnake

tomers. Give us a break and have the

Well, let's just say the results have
been underwhelming. Conditions at
the golf course andl marina have dete-
riorated. Debt has increased and there
appears to be no end in sight.
Now granted, when we say "irun it
like a private business," we lend to
overlook all the businesses that fail in
the first year or eventually receive gov-
ernment aid in order to reorganize
and survive or go into bankruptcy.
And we tend to overlook the city
water works and the sewer system
which are operated superbly by our
municipal government. So perhaps
the mantra should be, "Let's run our
city in an efficient manner."

I want to express my appreciation
to Angela Daughtry and the News-
Leader for reporting on the dismal
state of our financial affairs at the mari-
na and golf club ("Debt moLints at
marina,golf club," June 21). I believe,
however, that this article then begs
several additional questions. If the city
is still paying the wages and benefits
of the these "privatized"
facilities and bailing out the private
corporations that contracted to operate
them, what was the rationale for the
privatization? What did the numbers
look like prior to the privatization?
Were they losing even more money
than they are now? Certainly in the
case of the golf course, I can state
from personal observation that the
course deteriorated dramatically in
the two years it has been privately
managed. If the city entered into a
contract that results in the taxpayers
paying the employee costs, the oper-
ating costs, funding the shortfalls and
paying the private operator a man-
agement fee to run in the red and
allow the course to deteriorate, one
must ask, who did this and why? Then
when it is reported that the city uses
a $600,000 surplus generated from
water and sewer operations to cover
the deficits from the golf club and
marina, one imuist ask, where does that
surplus come from? If the suirpilus is
generated from sewer and water
charges to users outside the city lim-
its, I am fine with tha. Out sidee users
of our water and sewer systems should
subsidize resident taxpayers. Hlowevxer,
if any of the surplus gitenrated iby

Sweater and sewer services corie from
ICresidents of the city, one must ask,
why? Are we being gouged for) water
and sewer in order to make up for
deficits elsewhere? Water and sewer
services should not be run as a profit
center. Let those responsible for man-
aging the golf course and the marina
be held accountable for their opera-
tional and financial problems, includ-
ing the private management compa-
nies and those within the city
administration that decided to enter
into these contracts. Let the rest of us
pay for water and sewer what those
services actually cost, plus reserves
for future maintenance, and not a
penny more to cover other financial
shortfalls in other operations. I hope
the News-Leader can pursue this and
obtain answers that the public

I recently read in the News-Leader
(June 21) about the gentleman that
found a purse with almost $10,000 in
it, and the incident was very similar to
v. ii li,j .1- .,I to me on June 1 of this
yctai. tI. :l. I' ii my money clip con-
taining money (but not $10IQ, driver's
license, insurance and credit cards,
etc., and cell phone on the back of my
wife's car after returning from a bike
ride. We later ran an errand at which
time the money clip and phone landed
in the middle of Will Hardee Road,
only being discovered missing a few
minutes later while we were in a store.
After retracing our steps and search-
ing the house to no avail, I began to
think about the dreaded process of
card cancellations, new driver's
license, etc., and then Lloyd Jones, a
USPS carrier, showed up at my home
and announced that he was there to
make my dlay, and boy, he sure did! He
had found everything scattered in the
road where they had been run over
and he stopped, picked it all up and
brought them to me later that clay.
Everything was recovered by Lloyd
and returned intact, which clearly
demonstrates there are good, honest
people with integrity in our commu-
nity, if that was ever doubted.
I cannot express my appreciation
enough for Lloyd Jones going out of
his way to gather up and return these
things to me and I applaud his kind-
ness, initiative and integrity. The USPS
should be very proud to have folks
like him on their staff, and Lloyd
deserves to be recognized for this as

apparently acceptable) result of a preg-

I find myself pondering the sub-
ject of abortion and wondering why
there is such a wide opinion through-
out the country as to the legality and
right of an individual to terminate a
pregnancy Many organizations and
government facilities support and
encourage this practice and others
oppose it. Why such a difference of
There is confusion in the law where
abortions are legal yet in cases of mur-
der of a pregnant women, the killer is
charged with two homicides. Does
that not imply the fetus is a human
being? When does life begin? I believe
that the AMA has stated that it begins
at conception. Many churches in the
country seem in agreement. If so, then
' would abortion be murder?
It would be interesting to me to
see some facts printed as to the num-
ber of abortions in the U.S. each day
Sand the impact this has for us. I would
like to see the amriount of money spent
on each abortion as opposed to the
money spent on adoption. I would
assume that more money is spent on
encouraging abortions as to encour-
aging women to complete their preg-
nancy and if necessary place them up
for adoptions. In addition I would like
to know how many adoptions there
are in the U.S. each year and of that
number, how many children were
from foreign countries. How many
families go childless because of insuf-
ficient number of available children?
Are there a number of families that
are burdened with too many children
and find no help?
There must be some social impact
and if so what is it? How many abort-
ed children would have been engi-
neers, scientists, CEO's, leaders in
government, etc.? Would they have
had an economic impact? Is it a good
practice to manage the number of
births? My understanding is that it
takes 2.1 births per family to sustain a
race/country I have been told that
Italy, France and, I think, Germany
are beyond the possibility of being
able to sustain their heritage. Is this
true and how do we stand in the U.S.?
Should all organizations that offer or
support health services be required to
give both sides of the story?
Hopefully your staff could, in an
unbiased way, produce this infoi for
publication and maybe it would cause
us to take a second look at what we

want as a society.

Time to wake up
For all the taxpayers that happen to
be concerned about your taxes, special
assessments, etc., I have attended over
98 percent of the county commission
meetings. No matter how much I
address the commissioners and give
them names of organizations that will
help, I have very rarely found that they
say "No" to anyone needing money.
Are we in debt? Yes. Was (Clerk of
Court/Comptroller) John Crawford
correct in his budget presentation?
Yes, he was, and there would be no
reason for taxes to be raised, gas taxes
to be implemented or a new fire assess-
ment fee to be considered. The spend-
ing is out of control and only you can
stop it. John Crawford is the keeper of
Nassau County's revenue and so far we
feel ihe has clone an honest job and has
looked out for you and me. Why do we
have the county budget office and the
clerk of court? It's due'to commis-
sioners voting to separate it approxi-
mately six years ago. Should that have
happened? No! The clerk's office
knows all the laws and is legally
responsible. A perfect example is the
June 24 commission meeting. I encour-
age you to watch where John
Crawford's office is overruled. Make
your commissioners accountable now!
The commissioners keep creating
unnecessary projects, oncc someone
comes to them with an iiea they more
than likeIly run wit iit I at a cost of mil-
lions to you and me. The mlailinteiiance
of inrlastrr'uctue r'is hIarndly ,ver

What are Sunshine laws for?
You know as well as I do that
increasing more revenue means there
is no accountability regarding any type
of balanced budget. You only read the
major headlines in the newspaper as
there is much more spending hence

of how he was saving $100,000 a

an increase of over almost $1.5 mril-
lion; that math doesn't add up. Does

Wood stork rescue

was a dance of wits

Living where I do, I'm privi-
leged to have a front roW seat to
a delightful parade of wildlife.
Migratory birds that. stop on
their way from one place to
another and marsh birds that
-live here year round are a rich
source of daily entertainment.
When I drive home from
work, I always look to my right
to survey the lush landscape of
my neighbor's yard where
herons, egrets, wood storks and
my favorite roseate spoonbills
stop to enjoy a man-made lake.
When I my favorite
viewing place one dlay this
spring, the sight that met my
eyes nearly broke my heart a
beautiful wood stork with a bro-
ken wing. 0
I immediately pulled my car
over and rolled down the pas-
senger window to get a better
view. My heart ached to see his
left wing hanging useless at his
side as he walked around slow-
ly, appearing bewildered.
"Oh, no! Oh, you poor
-thing!" I cried. "'-I've got to help
Cell reception is spotty in
the boonies of our neighbor-
hood but I gave it a try anyway,
calling a friend, to see if she
could look up the phone num-
ber for our wildlife writer, Pat
Foster-Turley. Battling static,
she was finally able to convey
the number to me but when I
finally got a signal several min-
' -utes later, Pat wasn't home.
Reluctant to leave the bird
but knowing I'd have better luck
doing a search for wildlife res-
cue on my computer, I dashed
the short way home, but
Murphy's Law was in evidence
My computer stalled, and
wouldn't bring up a search win-
dow so I called the office, enlist-
ing the aid of Assistant Editor
Sian Perry.
*Armed with phone numbers
*for the Humane Society; Florida
Fish and Wildlife and other
sources, I got busy trying to
find a way to help my avian
Several phone calls later, I
was in, tears at my desk, won-
dering how on earth I was
going to get an injured, four-
foot-tall bird into a box and
transport it to a place where it

could be cared for.
I was determined not to let
that Beautiful creature down so
I put together a hasty dinner
for my spouse and armed with
several large towels, I drove
down the road to a neighbor's
house to enlist his aid in cap-
turing the bird.
SWe drove cautiously to the
area where I'd last seen the
wood stork but he was not
there. He'd managed to make
his way back near the flock and
was standing close to several
other wood storks beside the
Unwilling to advance onto
the lake owner's property with-
out his permission, I drove slow-
ly up the driveway and knocked
..upon his door.
"He got too close to a Cana-
dian goose nest," reported my
neighbor. "The papa bird attack-
ed him and tried to drown him."
After breaking up the
ruckus, he had transported the
injured wood stork to the far
corner of his property near the
fence where I'd first seen him.
"We want to catch him and
take him somewhere where he
can get help," I explained.
"Well, just steer clear of that
It took awhile and quite a bit
of fancy dancing, but between
my neighbor and myself, we
managed to corral the fright-
ened bird and drop a towel over
his head. He immediately fold-
ed up his long legs and we were
able to contain him within the
SAs my helper cradled the
bird in his arms, I called Nassau
County Animal Services and
explained the situation. The dis-
patcher suggested B.E.A.KS.
(Bird Emergency Aid and Kare
Sanctuary) and said she'd call
them and have them get back
with me.
Our next priority was finding
a box to house this large bird for
the journey. Stopping by his
house, I took over bird duty
while my neighbor looked for a
The bird's body felt warm
inside the towels, and I spoke
softly to him.
"We're going to get you
some hlr-lp. st-the u t. You're
going io be all rgig-t"
The, towel moved briefly as
he snapped his beak a few
times, but he remained calm.

My neighbor emerged from
his home shaking his head.
"Looks like I don't have a
box after all."
I transferred the bird to his
arms and we headed to my
house to see if I could find
something in which to contain
our patient..
As I rounded the corner up
the street from my house, I was
thrilled to see that someone set
out a large box that had for-
merly contained a child's play-
house. Eureka!
Cindy Moshing called just
then, giving us directions to
B.E.A.KS. and we said we'd be
there as soon as we'd contained
the bird.
I took charge of the bird
again as my helper cut the box
down for the journey.
It seemed to take forever to
traverse the 23 miles to our des-
tination at Big Talbot Island, but
at last we arrived and gently
placed the injured wood stork in
the large blue kennel near the
sanctuary gates.
As we carefully removed the
towels, the bird sat up and
looked directly at us, eyes
"You're going to be all right
now, baby," I said. "Cindy will
take good care of you."
Cindy Mosling has been car-
ing for injured birds for the past
31 years at B.E.A.K.S. and
Murphy (as I named him after
the entire episode was over)
couldn't be in better hands.

I *' The0moon is full, at week's start, so expect to see only the brightest stars and planets. Venus has now become the sole guardian
< ^'*'. of evening twilight. View it about 30 minutes after sundown in the same direction where the "sun goes down" low in the
'.1 WNW. Ifyou lookjusta little bit westofsouthat 10p.m., you'll notice two very bright luminaries: the one tothe left is Saturn.
'To Saturn's right will be Spica, the alpha star of Virgo the Virgin. Although Virgo is one of the zodiacal constellations through
W which.the sun passes, its star pattern is only discernable under the clearest of-skies because of the faintness of the other stars
which form the constellation. She looks more like a "lizard lady" in a sleeping bag, and I can understand fully why suitors have been reluctant to
call. Blue-white Spica. however, is a whole different story. It is truly one of the more luminous stars in the heavens, but because of its 250 light
year distance, it appears as only the 16th brightest star of the night. However, if Spica were moved to 10 parsecs or32.6 light years from our sun.
the standard distance to which the brilliance of all stars are compared, Spicas would rival the planet Venus in luster. In contrast. Sol would be an
inconspicuous star, even froinm rural locations, similarto the other faint stars which form Virgo, the "Lizard Lady's" body. Spica is. at the very least,
a double star system with two hot, blue-white luminaries orbiting each other in just over four days. Their separation is a mere I11 million miles,
about lISth the Earth-sun distance. The brighter component of the pair has a surface temperature of 40,80(1X) degrees tE, while its fainter companion
is just 7000 degrees cooler. The telmperatture of our sun, in comparison, is only 1.0,500.) degrees F. Catch Spica now; for in the weeks ahead, it will
continue to slide towards the western horizon, exiting the deep twilight sky by late August.

Shrimp boats, wakes and never clocking out

It's been a long time since some-
one barked at me with such anger in
their voice. His hard words shat-
tered the serenity of the moment.
Though not sure why, clearly he was
having a bad day. In an effort to
heed his angry request, I quickly
grabbed the throttle and slowed our
boat down even more. The young
man with me was as shocked as I.
We both knew we were well within
the speed limit of the no wake zone
we were traveling through. The best
I could figure, the man turning
wrenches on his tired shrimp boat
mnust have been having some chal-
lenges getting something fixed.
Regardless, I decided to forgive him
* and head out onto the open water for
a good day of fishing.
Since I surrendered my life to

Christ, many years
ago, anger has not
been an issue for
me. Though there
have been times
S when I've felt some

and work in my life
have kept me in a

Pastor tain, I must admit,
Rob Goyette that grace was
tried. Thankfully,
the lure of a beautiful clay of fishing,
and a commitment to not let my
heart get offended, pulled me past
the angry shrimper and on to

Amelia Island's beautiful backwa-
Now all that was good until it was
time to return home. Knowing we
would have to navigate the same
creek and no wake zone, I was extra
careful to crawl my little boat past
the spot where we had been so
warmly greeted earlier that day..
Though this time the man didn't
yell, the glare in his eyes was just as
angry. It was then that my fishing
partner, a.young guy and member of
my congregation, asked a question.
"As a pastor, do you ever just want to
bark back," he said, wondering if I
was just like everyone else. 'There
are times," I told him, "but such con-
duct would not be fitting for some-
one in my role." "But it's your day
off," he said, giving us both a good

laugh. LaIter, his humorous words
got me thinking.
Beyond being a pastor, being a
child of God is not a job we clock in
and out of. It's who we are.
Unfortunately, rinol everyone agrees.
For those who hold such a view, I
see a few problems. Namely, if my
commitment to walk with God is
sporadic, when I need His help, His
responsiveness is likely to be the
same. Though it's true, He's very
mer-ciful, it's also true that if we
think we can make it without Him,
He's more than willing to let us try.
My experience doing so has never
been good. I once heard it said that
seven days without God makes one
weak. While it's a play on words, I
couldn't agree more. I suppose if
Christmas and Easter-, or if you are

really spiritual Sundays and
Wednesday, are the only times of
the year we need God, than clocking
in and out as a Christian would be
OK. 'The problem is, it's just not that
way. Life's challenges come when
they want not when we plan them.
Consequently, we need God all the
In the end, we all have a wake
that follows behind our lives. As for
me, and for those who are watching
me, I want to be sure that what they
see in my wake is Jesus. To think
that I can take a day off from
Leaning on Him and still have those
results is presumptuous to say the

A.As you were describing
.it to me, I became very
interested as orange colored
wildflowers are not as com-
mon as yellow or pink. It
helped tremendously when
you brought a sample into
the office. I truly, had not
seen the plant before but one
of the sharp eyed Master
Gardener volunteers was
able to do some research and
identified it for us as Orange
Milkwort. It is most likely
Polygala lutea. It has also
been commonly called bog

pine trees are grown. It can
take full sun or partial shade.
The basal leaves feel almost
succulent and it reaches
heights of generally no more
than 1.5 feet.
The flowers produce a
cylinder-like flower head that
starts out yellow in color but
changes to a bright orange.
While blooms often occur
early in the summer it is not
uncommon to see it continue
to bloom into the early fall. It
would make a perfect ground
cover since it blooms for
such a long period of time
but it does need sufficient
moisture to keep it happy"

Q .What can you tell me
Q about this wildflower I
discovered along the road-
side near the beach in
Fernardina? JR

A This has been a banner
.year for wild flowers;
with the recent rains the
local landscapes are full of
beautiful surprises. I sent
photos of the flower to the
University of Florida
Herbarium and they identi-
fied it in the genus Sabatia,
possibly Sabatia grandiflora.

The common name of this
group of flowers is Large-
flower Rosegentian.
The flowers are about the
size of a quarter, a soft pink

They grow in full sun. well-
drained soil and reach
heights of about 12-18 inches
tall. Some of these wildflow-
ers like a moist soil, which
may be why these showed up
after our heavy rainfalls.
Like most showy flowers,
Rosegentian wildflowers
attract bees, butterflies and
birds. This is a native annual

Q .What can you tell me
*about the plant called
the grape soda plant? My
friend says I should plant it.
Can we successfully grow it
here? NP

A .Grape soda plant? I
-.think she might be
referring to the annual
Angelonia. Apparently, if you
crush the leaves it will put off
a smell similar to a grape soft
drink. Angelonia come in a
wide variety of colors from.
white to pink to deep purple.
If we have really mild win-

ind cover

ters, it is'possible for it to
overwinter and stay another
Some people call this
plant the summer snapdrag-
on because it can handle the
warmer climates. It is a very
pretty upright'flower and pro-
duces flowers from late
spring through the summer.
Angelonia prefers a slightly
acid, well-drained soil, with a
pH around 5.5 6.2. They
will need some room to
spread so plant them about
12-16 inches apart. They can
reach heights up to 3 feet,
depending on the variety and
will require weekly watering
to keep them healthy
through the summer heat.
Cut them back to half
their height about half way
through the summer and
they will produce more
blooms. A light application of
a complete fertilizer after this
pruning would be beneficial.
Angelonia is perfect as a tall
filler plant in containers and
is olfen used as a cut flower.
This annual can be found at
most any local garden center.

interactive scenarios and parent and kid
tips. Also available is an online web train-
ing ( and
handbooks (

how to spot and report abuse, and pro-

"Summer is an important time to
open up the lines of communication and
make sure children know they can come
to their trusted adults with anything,"
said Lauren Book, M.S. Ed., founder
and CEO of lauren's Kids. "It's very
helpful to run scenarios by children and
help themi imagine how they would han-
dle different situations."
Parents also can benefit from the
resources of the "Don't Miss the Signs"
( campaign,
a comprehensive public awareness cam-
paign that launched earlier this year
that aims to educate Floridians about
the signs of child abuse as well as their
obligation to report suspected abuse.

where children are, so youth-serving
organizations need to keep their guard
up and learn how to be a strong first line
of defense against sexual abuse," said
Department of Children and Families
Secretary David Wilkins. "These resour-
ces give parents and caregivers impor-

To promote a safer summer experi-
ence, Florida requires all owners, oper-
ators, employees and volunteers who
work more than 10 hours a month to
undergo background screening for state
and criminal histories. DCF wants to
remind summer camp operators of
Florida's background screening require-
ments and encourages them to add their
summer camp listings to DCF's
statewide database.
Summer camp has long been a tra-
dition for kids and is an important part

of child development. It is crucial that
parents ask quest ions and make sure
any summer camp personlulel are appro-
priately screened. Parents can search
DCF's database of summer camps
whose personnel have con firmned back-
ground screenings. To search D)CF's
