If government is our
grand protector, what
do we have to fear?
Government loves to assume the
role of grand protector.
Indeed, governments on all levels
want to protect us from all sorts of
threats, big and small.
Unfortunately, when the government
decides it must protect us from the
latest danger, it tends to carry, in the
words of Theodore Roosevelt, a very
Take for instance the federal
government's response to the discovery
of lead in a number of children's toys
imported from China in 2007. A year
later, Congress passed the Consumer
Product Safety Improvement Act
(CPSIA), requiring all products aimed
for children 12 and to undergo third-
For the large manufacturers,
including those who received the
suspect Chinese products, spreading
the additional cost wasn't a huge
burden. But the law didn't affect just
these well-known companies. The end
result for smaller businesses, many of
them mom-and-pop enterprises, was
closures, shrinking product lines and
But we are safer, right?
Perhaps Congress learned its
lesson, because when lawmakers
recently passed the Food and
Drug Administration Food Safety
Modernization Act, they exempted
smaller operations from the new
farm inspection and record-keeping
requirements, which would have
similarly put many of them out of
business. Or maybe, as the Wall
Street Journal's Viriginia Postrel
suggests, the small farmers were
simply better organized politically and
had rpore influential friends.
Butif our electedofficials are striving
to protect us, governmental agencies
and their bureaucracies are in the
business of doing so, and that leaves
the door wipe open for abuse. The
more threats they can find to protect
us against, the bigger their budgets
Why else would the Environmental
Protection Agency be working to expand
the scope of the Spill Prevention,
Control, and Countermeasure Rule--
created in 1970 to protect against oil
spills in our waterways--to include
milk (which the agency says contains
animal fat, a non-petroleum oil)?
Why else would a dispute over the
interpretation of Taylor County's
comprehensive plan between the
very people who wrote it and the
Florida Department of Community
Affairs, which disagrees with them, be
awaiting a ruling from Gov. Rick Scott
and his cabinet five years after the
issue first arose?
The problem with a government that
is always assuming the role of grand
protector is that our elected officials
begin to believe that they are not only
entitled, but obligated to protect us
more and more.
The City of Perry, citing "legitimate
health, safety and general welfare
concerns," recently imposed a three-
month moratorium on permitting new
sweepstakes centers within the city,
businesses which to date have been
found to be legal enterprises.
The same week Perry issued its
moratorium, New York state senator
Carl Kruger, spurred by a tiny uptick
in pedestrian deaths in his state,
proposed a ban on crossing the street
while talking on the phone or listening
to your mp3 player. Unlike talking and
driving, which has been banned in
several states, the only person you're
putting at risk in this case is yourself.
Defending his "walking while wired"
proposal, Sen. Kruger said, "When
people are doing things that are
detrimental to their own well being,
then government should step in."
That brings us to the biggest danger
of government trying to protect us
from everything. Sooner or later, they
will decide they must protect us from

of $183.3 million in the second
quarter of fiscal 2010.

its quarterly cash dividend by
25 percent. Officials said the
Increase was due to higher
selling prices and improved
Shipment volume was down

company finished rebuilding
inventories at its Foley mill and

shipments were impacted by
limited availability and high
prices of cotton linters.
Second quarter earnings of
$17.1 million included after-tax
costs relating to early
retirement of debt,
restructuring and accrued
interest associated with the
cellulosic biofuel credit
totaling $3.2 million.
This compared to net income
of $46.3 million in the prior
year comparable period, which
included net income of $37.5
million from alternative fuel
mixture credits (AFMC).
Excluding AFMC and
cellulosic biofuel tax credits,
early debt retirement costs and
adjusted net income was $20.3
million versus second quarter
fiscal 2010 adjusted net income
of $8.8 million.
The increase was largely
driven by higher selling
prices in the specialty fibers
segment and reduced interest
Comparing the second
quarter to the first quarter of
FY11, sales were up $7.4
million as increased shipment
volume from the company's
specialty cotton fibers plants
combined with higher selling
prices and improved mix in the
specialty fibers segment offset
the impact of reduced
nonwovens shipment volumes.
Net interest expense was
down $1.9 million due to the
refinancing of $140 million of
public debt at the beginning of
the quarter. The remaining
improvement was due to
increased production volumes
across Buckeye's wood and
cotton specialty fibers plants,
an increase in specialty cotton
shipment volume and selling
price increases for specialty
cotton and fluff pulps, which
were partially offset by lower
operating income in
nonwovens due to seasonally
Overall, gross margin
improved from 18 percent in
the first quarter to 21.2 percent
in the second quarter.
"We were very pleased with
our second quarter financial
results. Excluding special
items such as the significant
income we recognized in past
quarters related to the various
fuel tax credits, this was a
record earnings quarter for
Buckeye. Earnings showed
strong improvement compared
both to the same quarter a year
ago and to the immediately
preceding quarter, and we
expect this upward trend to
continue," Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer John B.
Crowe said the demand for
specialty wood pulp remains
very strong, with average
selling prices up by about 17
percent on Jan. 1 compared to
the second quarter average and

Fluff pulp prices remain at
"We now have more than
90 percent of our Memphis
cotton linter pulp demand
covered by long-term sales
contracts containing cost pass-
through provisions. Input costs
for specialty fibers remain
fairly stable with the exception
of cotton linters. After the
seasonally weak second
quarter, we expect nonwovens
sales and earnings to improve
in the third quarter on increased
shipments, increased selling
prices and stable fluff pulp
prices. We should start to
realize cost savings during the
next two quarters as phase one

Steinhatchee School teacher Pam Keller stands with her kindergarten class shortly
after receiving the news that she had been named Taylor County's Teacher of the
Year. She credited her students for the honor, telling them, "You make my job fun."

instills a love of learning in her

for the dramatic, Pamela
Keller is one of those teachers
who challenges students
academically, yet entertains
them at the same time,"
said fellow teacher Marla
"As a colleague of Pam's
for the past three years, I have
thoroughly enjoyed my daily
interactions with her outside of
the classroom, but treasure the
occasional glance I gain of her

by the success of the students,"
Keller said in her application.
"The success of the students is
answered by the question, 'Am
I the best I can be?'
"As a teacher, it is my
responsibility to make sure
the answer to this question is;
without a doubt, 'Yes.'"

students and colleagues Friday
