Yulee gaming parlor back in business


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
After being ordered closed and
having its gaming equipment
locked up for eight months, Cisco's
Vegas Paradise is open again.
The Florida State Attorney's
Office mandated that the Yulee
business be closed in June amidst
questions whether its 5-cent video
machines constituted gambling or
whether they required any skill.
Owner Fairley Cisco and his


News-Leader
The "rotten-egg" smell that
sometimes permeates Fernandina
Beach's air "the smell of money,"
locals call it comes from only
one of its paper mills, state officials
say.
That plant, Smurfit-Stone
Container Corp., received a fine
and letter of warning last summer
for producing too much of the sul-
fur pollutants, state officials said. It
soon corrected the situation and
is now within state-mandated limits
for "total reduced sulfur."
The Smurfit-Stone mill on
North Eighth Street produces loan
paper, a process that requires sodi-
um sulfide and sodium hydroxide
to soften raw wood for pulping, cre-
ating the noxious smell.
Rick Banks, environmental
manager for the state Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP), said the Rayonier plant on
Gum Street uses different chemi-
cals to extract cellulose from pine
wood.
He said the Smurfit-Stone plant


daughters, Aletha Shave and
Tammy Cisco Walker, opened the
business near AlA and US 17 in
April and had been forced twice to
close. Over the last eight months,
they have been in limbo, Aletha
Shave said.
But the State Attorney's Office
and Cisco's attorney, Michael Wolf
of Fort Lauderdale have reached
an agreement that put the business
back exactly where it was before
the June closure.
"We stated our position, they


stated theirs, we stated respect for
each other and agreed to re-open,"
Wolf said,
As a result, Cisco's Vegas
Paradise re-opened Friday and the
Ciscos waived the right to sue for
money they lost in the eight
months since they closed.
During that closure, all of its
gaming machines were locked up
in a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
facility in Jacksonville, said
Assistant State Attorney Granville
"Doc" Burgess. With the Feb. 4


agreement, the machines had to
be returned and re-installed by
Feb. 11.
A variant on 'modern slot
machines and video games, the
games are programmed to oper-
ate on a nickel play and produce an
action a player can stop with a but-
ton push to determine a win. The
player can win up to 50 cents in
tickets, much like the tickets that
pop out of games at a children's
arcade. Players can redeem their
tickets for pre-charged Visa cards


good for a purchases, but not for
cash. They can .also claim other
prizes as well after saving up their
tickets.
Shave said the customers
returned very soon after the "open"
signs reappeared on the business.
'The second we re-opened our
doors, our regular customers found
out," Shave said. "It happened
Friday around four o'clock and by
seven o'clock, a lot of our regulars

Doctor returns home


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
They keep coming home, these
grown-up children of Nassau
County. They've spent years per-
haps decades out in the "real"
world, only to return after discov-
ering the best is right here.
But unlike the prodigal son,
they don't return empty-handed.
Their baggage is heavily weight-
ed with the skills, education and
wisdom acquired, and they are
ready to give their best to the com-
munity they love.
Dr. David Page Jr. is one of
those whose long-held ties to this
area brought him back to open a
family practice office in Fernandina
Beach. His father, once a minister,
owns and operates Page's


Page graduated from
FBHS in 1976, where
he was valedictorian,
a drum major and
in Madrigals.

Landscape Nursery in Yulee, and
his wife, Kim, although not from
this area, once served as our
mayor. They have three children:
J.C. is 21 and recently discharged
from the Air Force; Annie, 10, goes
to Emma Love school, and Laura,
4, is in Jack and Jill preschool.
"My life has involved a lot of
moving around, and certainly was
not the shortest route to what we
wanted. But there have been good


experiences along the way that I
would have missed had it been oth-
erwise," says Page.
"However, I'm pretty certain
that this is the terminal move for
me. The hospital here has been
wonderful. For instance, managed
care has become so complicated
that its requirements take a big
bite out of the time a doctor has to
spend with his patients. Baptist
Nassau's methods have made it
much easier for me. And the doc-
tors here have been extremely wel-
coming. It's not that way every-
where."

shaved their heads to keep lice

cover their baldness. They
"cleaned" the wool wigs by bak-

round bread, this made them big,

Since
there were
no cameras,

were either sculpted or painted.
Prices for portraits depended on
how many limbs were painted,
since they involved more work.
Hence the expression, "That's
going to cost an arm an a leg."
Many houses in the 1700s
used a large board which folded
down from the wall for dining.
Benches were used for seating,
except at the end of the table,
where a chair was placed. The
head of the household or a very
special guest always sat in the
chair. This "chair man" was
important and in charge. Now
you know how the title "chair-
man" or "chairman of the board"
came to be used.

MICHAEL PARNELL/NEWS-LEADER
In the end, the city of Fernandina Beach resolved a dispute with the Ketch Courtyard condo-
minium association by building a new beach access 39 walkover. This despite the city's asser-
tions that it had granted the condo permission to build the original walkover, left, provided the
public have permanent access to it. The condo association provided about $5,000 of the cost
for the new boardwalk. It had prompted the dispute by fencing off its walkover in November.


SMELL Continued from 1A
last summer. 'They had to test
again and they passed. They paid
$4,000 in penalties."
Plant officials said they are get-
ting rid of the bulk of the smelly
pollutants.
"For mills like us, the reason
the odors have gone down over
the years is because we have been
collecting these gases and com-
busting them," Smurfit Stone
Environmental Manager Bill
Crews said. "There are still
processes you can't collect them
from. We have reduced it and have
gotten the worst areas of it."
The total reduced sulfur pollu-
tants are not included in the list of
188 air pollutants considered toxic
under the federal Clean Air Act.
When it comes to the latter,
Smurfit-Stone ranked 51st in the
nation according to the EPA's 2002
test results.
In 1985, Florida lawmakers
sought to reduce the noxious
smell created by plants like
Smurfit-Stone by passing a law
limiting "total reduced sulfur."
Banks said over the last five
years, Smurfit-Stone has reduced *
by 40 percent its particulate mat-
ter and sulfur dioxide emissLons,
whi'hcontibute to acid rain ,.,.,
'Michael- Cooke, director of air
resources management for the
DEP, explained that under the cur-
rent federal Clean Air Act, the


agency acts under the regulations
of the EPA.
"DEP and EPA standards get
incorporated into their permit,"
Cooke said. "It's a mixture."
Cooke said recent sharp reduc-
tions in the 188 pollutants on the
EPA's toxic list are a result of new
standards set in the 1990 revision
of the Clean Air Act. For each
industry, the agency has deter-
mined the highest pollution con-
trols that can be reasonably
achieved with the latest technolo-
gy and then imposes them as a
maximum achievable control tech-
nology standard.
In 2001, both mills had to
achieve the standards and anoth-
er round is to be set for 2006. Both
complied with the changes.
However, Cooke said there is
no perfect way to measure the 188
pollutants.


'To some extent, it is a problem
of over-estimation" since not all of
the pollutants can be accurately
recorded with existing equipment,
Cooke said.
Control of sulphur gas emis-
sions is another issue, Cooke
explained. Since Florida enacted
laws to restrict those in 1985,
much more have been eliminated
through scrubbers, burning and
other methods.
Cooke said kraft paper plants
are especially subject to those
emissions, since their process typ-
ically uses sulfuric compounds to
break down wood while main-
taining the strength of its fibers.
The wood fermentation
process in kraft mills produces
methanol, or wood alcohol, which
is one of the 188 Clean Air Act
toxic list pollutants.

Tuesday. McCoy
had taught reading to the sixth and
seventh grades there since mid-
year last year. "She was an out-

Mazzella.
He said the school was able to

an innocent form of entertainment."
"I'm real excited they were able
to come to an agreement," Shave
said as the eight months ended.
"We're glad it all came to an end."
And now, on short notice, the
business has endeavored to pick
up where it left off nearly a year

Schools to evaluate substitute teachers


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
The Nassau County School
Board, meeting Thursday in
Bryceville, unanimously approved
a standardized method to evaluate
substitute teachers.
The new performance apprais-
al form will be completed for each
substitute teacher who has taught
in a single classroom setting for
30 days.
School board member Janet


Adkins explained that like that for
teachers, the substitute evaluation
is to be performed by a school's
principal. She noted that there are
currently six substitute teachers
throughout the district teaching
on what is considered a long-term
basis.
The evaluator examines seven
areas of the substitute teacher's
work. Those include classroom
and instructional planning, class-
room management, handling of
data and secure materials, assis-


tance and intervention, working
with others, cooperation with par-
ents and adherence to a code of
ethics.
The standardized appraisal
form is to be completed at or near
a substitute's 30-day mark, but
before such a teacher begins, they
are to submit fingerprints and pro-
vide documentation of their own
education.
They must undergo an orien-
tation and training to be familiar-
ized with school safety and secu-


rity, educational liability laws,
responsibilities and ethics.
Adkins said board members
seek to standardize the district's
policies toward substitutes, review-
ing how they are paid in addition to
how they are evaluated.
The review was developed in
response to a state law requiring a
method to ensure educational qual-
ity control from substitutes who
teach the same class for 30 days or
more.

city commissioner ever ask my
opinion regarding issues being
entertained by the board. This is
unacceptable. The members of the
citizens boards are volunteers that

The insecurity of Social Security


designed to foster public
security has caused a
tumult of insecurity.
The Social Security program
was started back in the 1930s by
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
to help provide peace of mind for
retirees. After financial setbacks
and reverberations such as the
Great Depression, Americans
needed something to help calm
their nerves and to rely on
after they stopped working.
The Social Security program
addressed this need at the time,
and still does today. However,
there are growing signs of strain.
Benefits are being taxed if you
earn too much, or you may have
to delay receiving benefits until
later in life.
As people retire earlier and
live longer, the system has been
strapped by fewer people working
(and paying in) for those receiv-
ing benefits.
Now, there is a new introduc-
tion to the Social Security pro-
gram. President Bush is propos-
ing an optional savings account
for younger workers. In what is
called a "personal retirement
account," you would be able to
invest your contributions into
mutual funds, for instance, in

hopes of hav-
ing more
money at
retirement.
Social
Security pen-
sion funds
have tradi-
tionally been
placed in safe,
secure invest-
ments such as
treasury
bonds. As
long as more
people are
contributing
taxes to the
Social


Security program than are receiv-
ing benefits, this equation works
nicely.
That clearly is changing based
upon demographics. As the Baby
Boomers retire in droves and
begin taking their benefits, the
current system appears headed
on a crash course. Bush has said
it would not be able to sustain
itself beginning in 2018.
Bush's plan is ambitious.
Politicians have scratched their
heads in confusion for years over
what to do with the Social
Security system. When you con-
sider that the $1,400-a-month ben-

efits (the maximum per person)
comprise a critical portion of
retirement income for many peo-
ple, you can see a crisis looming.
The proposed plan would not
change the benefits of today's
retirees, or anyone born before
1950. Someone who chose the
new type of account would be
able to invest in indexes, for
instance, which represent a broad
range of investments. This would
be required to prevent partici-
pants from losing money in risky
investments, for instance, and
having nothing on which to
retire.
The proposal must pass
through Congress before gaining
approval. Many Democrats have
vowed to oppose the plan, due to
its somewhat unpredictable out-
come. It was a team of Democrats
surrounding FDR that initiated
the Social Security program we
know today.
Bush claims that if nothing is
done, the Social Security system
would not be there for our chil-
dren and grandchildren. Either
benefits would have to be
reduced, or the Social Security
taxes paid on wages would have

to be increased to overcome the
shortfall due to the demographic
shift.
Neither sounds like an ideal
alternative. All guesswork or
political posturing aside, there is
one thing that is certain. People
feel less secure about their retire-
ments than probably at any point
in the last 70 years. With skyrock-
eting medical costs, reduced com-
pany pensions, and a sporadic
stock market, some are delaying
retirement or having to live on
less money during their retire-
ment years.
A greater assortment of retire-
ment-type accounts are being
offered, and the restrictions on
them loosened. Also, workers are
able to funnel more money
toward their 401(k) and IRA
accounts and the likes so that
they can better prepare for their
retirement.
A secure retirement is part of
the American dream. Somehow,
someway, we must wake up from
a slumber of political gridlock and
help people find it.
Steve Nicklas is a financial
adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

the conditioned permits we had, their application did
not meet city criteria for removal, but would be
approved if they purchased a replacement tree' for
the trees being removed. Those customerswere
directed to the city's Park and Recreation
Department, to participate in the tree replacement
program. A convenient alternative a tree for a tree
what a great and affordable solution!
But not so fast there is a "no net loss of trees
within the city. Ordinance 2001-18, passed Dec. 4,
2001, states this intent. Yes, a very good intention but
an unrealistic one at best. An existing ordinance
comes to light by the new planner, unfortunately
insulting the integrity of the previous planner as "she
misinterpreted the ordinance," when the simple truth
is it has never been enforced. Everyone has a boss -
someone dropped the ball for the past three years.
Now, after all this time, the ordinance is in full
L. enforcement.
The expensive reality of this ordinance is: for the
total diameter of tree you wish to have removed, you
J must equal or exceed that diameter with replacement
trees. For example, if you have three trees which are
damaged, dead and diseased through no fault of
your own and say the total diameter is 54 inches -
you must purchase trees that equal or exceed that
same diameter and ensure their growth for a full
year. That sounds good, until you understand the
impact it has on your bank account. So you replace
this combined diameter of 54 inches with 6 live oaks
3 inches each, 6 southern magnolias 3 inches each
and 6 red cedars inches each. Total 18 trees at least
$5,000 installed.
I used the "heritage" trees as an example. There
are less expensive trees and larger caliper trees to
use. But these replacement trees must be on the
city's approved and permissible tree table. And just in
case you don't have enough room on your own prop-
erty to plant these replacement trees, you could plant
them within the city limits at schools, churches,
parks or cemeteries. Whatever your fancy, but you
must include your tree replacement site plan at the
time you submit your tree removal application. No
plan no permit.
This ordinance screams of economic strain for
. the average John Q. Citizen in Fernandina Beach that
meets all the tree removal criteria. The city of

Who is going to tell" You are just helping your neigh-
bor save money money he doesn't have to spend
on tree replacement.
The city will also be quietly creating a safety haz-
ard tu homes. personal property and people. For
homeowners that have dead, damaged or diseased
. trees, who simply cannot afford to comply with the
current tree replacement ordinance, what other
choice in the matter do they have except to wait until
it falls? Then they will experience the burden of
structural repairs, possible medical bills and dealing
with their homeowners' insurance if the claim
would even be covered at all. And yes, that has also
happened. The insurance company has canceled the
policy until the tree was removed. The homeowner is
in a financial stranglehold of ordinance and afford-
ability. The city has successfully relieved itself from
any and all liability by enforcing this ordinance.
The city's minimum penalty for violation can be
read in section 110-220, with a minimum fine not
exceeding $500 per violation, 60 days in jail, or both.
Plus, you still must submit a restoration plan in 30
days from the unauthorized removal. If you fail to do
this, it will result in double the fine. Once again, it
looks good in writing but who is going to enforce
this?
As a tree company, we strongly urge the cus-
tomer, whether city or county residents, to replace
the tree (s). We offer them our wholesale price that
we receive from nurseries to encourage purchase.
Trees are a vital part of our environment and commu-
nity. It just makes good citizenship and common
sense to replace "a tree for a tree."
My intent is to better inform city residents of the
financial obligations that are now expected of them
from the city of Fernandina beach. The city is cur-
rently in the "draft" process of a Unified Land
Development Code. Workshops are being held and
are open to the public for education, questions, input
and opinion. I urge all city residents to read this ordi-
nance in its entirety at
www.fernandinabeachflorida.org or get a copy from
the Community Planning Department and attend this
workshop or contact your local city commissioner.
This ordinance, with your input, should be
amended so that compliance of this ordinance can be
more easily achieved.

OPINION


Loss of confidence
I was somewhat confident that
our county commissioners realized
there is a serious financial prob-
lem in Nassau County, however,
my confidence exploded upon read-
ing "New county commission meet-
ing hall," Feb. 4.
The commissioners, upon real-
izing there were funds sitting in
the administrative impact fee fund,
concluded it had to be spent for a
new meeting room. Seems that the
commissioners are the only citi-
zens complaining haven't heard
the other 50,000 citizens complain.
We also were thrown a bone to
prepare us for what is to come. Be
prepared to be sold on the idea of
building a new sheriffs adminis-
tration building. The new jail is just
two years old and you wonder why
didn't it include the sheriff?
Maybe someday this county's
voters will seriously seek and vote
for candidates that accent the fact
that when you have a financial prob-
lem you say no to budget increas-
es, new employees and new proj-
ects. This is an absolute when
you're out of control.

Am I stupid?
I am retired living on a modest
income. Because my home is paid
for, I can use part of it to help some-
one who is less fortunate. For years
I have donated $52 a month to the
Feed the Children organization.
Also, I met a hard-working woman
with two children. She cannot
make enough to pay the high cost
of rent. There is nothing that is
less than $500 a month. Greed has
driven the cost of everything out of
reach for the low-income people.
Every year property taxes go up,
so I struggle to save enough to pay
them. For two years I have paid
the rent so this hard-working
woman and her children will have
a place to live. It is getting to the
point that I pay the taxes and let
this family lose their home.
What really burns me is to see
the county government waste the
hard-earned money the taxpayers
pay. They want to spend $100,000
to move their meeting place. I have
driven by the Pages Dairy building
several times during a meeting,

Sillyrules
Re: Obscene policy, Feb. 4. I
graduated in the top 10 percent of
my class in 2000 and am shocked at
what my relatives who are cur-
rently attending FBHS have to deal
with. Each year FBHS is becom-
ing more difficult on the students,
not in the form of coursework but
by the addition of silly rules that will
do nothing but further complicate
their lives.
The school board should even-
tually realize that the reason so
many kids drop out of school isn't
because of the course work but
because of the constantly increas-
ing senselessness at school. Instead
of looking at the bigger picture and
attempting to help motivate the stu-
dents, they try and make required
attendance a "fix-all" for their prob-
lems. Should a straight-A high
school senior truly be denied the
right to graduate because they
missed six classes?
The school board should
instead look at the teachers if they
want to see why kids truly do not
want to stay in class. The problem,
as I knew when I attended FBHS
and as I know now, lies in the class-
room. When I was a sophomore in
high school I didn't have a real
chemistry teacher, instead our class
went through four different sub-
stitute teachers. Then in my senior
year, our class then went through
five different English teachers.
Where is the consistency in
FBHS's policy? How can FBHS
expect to motivate students to stay
when their own instructors won't?
Even now, the school has what they
call "floaters," which are teachers
who are not given their own class-
rooms to teach in. When it comes
to motivating students, there is
even one teacher whose method
of teaching the class included hav-
ing the students teach themselves
from the book while she played at
her desk with needles and yarn. It
is this lack of motivation that gives
students no reason to attend or
enjoy class. The students who earn
the best grades now are those who
have learned that they have to
teach themselves, and as such it is.
the best strudents wh lo want to be in

Students are constantly having
their motivators taken away.

Seniors once had the right to leave
campus for lunch and then return
for class afterwards but now are
only given an extra five minutes
for lunch in place of 30 minutes of
freedom. High school is supposed
to prepare students for college and
get them ready for the real world,
but FBHS does neither. In college,
students' grades are primarily
dependent on the work they do and
the marks they make. In the work-
place, an employee's motivator for
attendance is their own pay. What
is a student's motivator for attend-
ing a class they would have to teach
themselves in anyway?
A student who can pass all tests
mandated by the county school
board and" who has maintained
good grades should not be failed.

performance and understanding in
school that we are trying to empha-
size. The rules decided on for
FBHS are becoming increasingly
ludicrous and I feel that if FBHS
truly wants to be a "Grade A"
school then they first have to look
at their teachers and how they moti-
vate students.

Careless Drivers
I am very upset about the stu-
dents and the parents who drive
down Citrona each morning before
school.
I am the parent of a 6-year-old
who rides the bus. His bus stop is
right on Citrona Drive, just feet
before the high school. When my
son's bus stops, I always look both
ways twice before letting him cross
the road. There are, however,
numerous occasions when he is
about to cross and I see people
speed up to pass the bus anyway!.
This is AFTER the bus has stopped
with its red lights on.
If you were to ask my son's bus
driver, she will tell you that she has
had to honk her horn at many driv-
ers because of their impatient
behavior, or maybe because they
aren't paying close attention. I am
writing because I am concerned
not only about the safety of my son,
but other young children as well
who have to cross the road during
busy traffic. I can understand not
wanting to be late for work or
school, but we should all know bet-
.te.W'hat if it were your kids? Does
the word STOP mean anything?
I wish something would be done
about this before a careless driver
causes an accident.

Attention


Kmart shoppers

Numerous businesses violate state and local
laws by posting advertising signs on rights of way
along streets and roads. None is more flagrant
than Kmart, a discount store apparently so des-
perate in its competition with Wal-Mart that it rou-
tinely flouts the law.
About one weekend a month Kmart signs
sprout all over town advertising a local special.
This past weekend it was a 70-percent-off sale for
Valentine's Day.
Pink and red signs dotted intersections along
* A1A and in the city and county on Saturday and
Sunday. By Monday morning, they were gone.
This perhaps is meant to thwart state and local
officials, who could enforce the law that prohibits
such signage. But enforcement apparently is lack-
ing.
We believe in advertising this newspaper is
financially supported by it but we believe also
in appropriate regulation to keep our community
free of the clutter that a hodge-podge of signs cre-
is not only curbs visual pollution, but the
profusion of signs at busy intersections is also a
safety hazard as it distracts motorists.
We ask you to take matters into your own
hands. When you see a sign posted on the road-
side, read it to say "Don't shop here." Send the
lawbreakers a message they will understand -
take your money somewhere else.


COMMUNITY THANKS

I'm an old war movie fan, particularly those about
WWII. I know, those old movies rarely, if ever,
showed the true horror of war, but for sheer
drama and good old-fashioned Americanism, you
can't beat them.
Thinking back on the hundreds of WWII films
I've seen over the years, there would be one scene,
one line in the script, consistent in all of them. An
officer, an older, grizzled veteran, would appear at
the battle scene, take a look around and say, "Who's
in charge here?" Some NCO, usually a sergeant,
would, after acknowledging the dead and wounded,
say, "Well, it looks like I am, sir."
What would the response be, I wonder, if
Fernandina Beach City Commissioners were asked
that same question concerning .changes they
ordered to our land development regulations
(LDRs)? "Who's in charge here," they're asked?
Well, if they responded with any answer other than
bureaucratss and consultants," they would be less
than honest
"What the heck is an LDR," you say? "And why
should I even care wh6 writes them, who changes
them and what they're changed to?" Here's why:
Our comprehensive plan is the document that
should contain our community's goals and objectives
regarding growth management. It should put down,
in document form, what we, the citizens, want our
community to look like, be like, live like five, 10,
even 15 years from now.
Land development regulations (LDRs) are the
codes, rules and regulations that support the com-
prehensive plan. If the comprehensive plan is our
growth management constitution, then the LDRs are
all the congressional actions that enable its enforce-
ment.
Bottom line if you care about growth manage-
ment, you care about the comprehensive plan and
you care about the LDRs.
Not long ago, city staff reported to the commis-
sion that some of the LDRs deviated from the com-
prehensive plan, making interpretation and enforce-
ment difficult. The LDRs needed to be "cleaned up,"
staff said, make them consistent with the compre-
hensive plan, you know, a little "housekeeping." The


n March 8 the Nassau Board of County
Commissioners will take up the vexing
landfill problem and make decisions that
will affect taxpayers' pockets for many
years. Without quick and assertive action by the
commissioners, the county will soon be engulfed by
a financial tsunami, a tsunami past boards failed to
see coming. Let's hope and pray this board sees the
tide rushing out and realizes what is about to strike.
A few years ago the county borrowed $24 million
to close old landfills and open the landfill north of
Callahan. To bring in income to cover payments on
the bond, the county made deals with out-of-county
trash haulers (from Duval and Clay Counties prima-
rily) to accept their garbage. But in the competitive
landfill business, the county had to offer dumping
fees (also called tipping fees and the gate rate)
around $25 a ton ($23.19 for Clay trash). In-county
haulers who collect our garbage, however, are
charged $40/ton. To make up the difference
between income from tipping fees and outgo (costs
of running the landfill, paying off the bond and con-
tributing to a reserve fund to close the landfill when
its air space is used up), the county assesses resi-
dents an annual fee. That fee is currently $45 per
home; it was once $100 (we'll get to that in a
moment).
The contracts with Duval and Clay, while helping
the short-term cash flow, have a disastrous long-
term consequence: at the current rate the landfill
will be full by 2008 or '09 while the bond won't be
paid off until 2013. That would mean, in addition to
spending $10 million or so to expand the landfill or
open a new one, you and I will be taxed or assessed
the money necessary to pay off the bond for four or
five years because that closed landfill will have no
income.
On Feb. 2, County Administrator Mike Mahaney
made a detailed report to the commissioners in
which he reported that Duval haulers have been
required to dump their trash in the Duval landfill
(what happens in Duval must stay in Duval). That
will mean a $1.8 million shortfall this year, and more
in future years. Also, commercial haulers (those
who collect trash from stores, restaurants and indus-
trial firms) have been taking the garbage to out-of- ,
county landfills where the tipping rate is cheaper
($27/ton in Camden County, Ga., rather than
$40/ton here). As a result, there will be a $400,000
shortfall in the commercial account. That's a $2.2
million shortage in the landfill account this year that
must be made up somehow.,


:commission agreed.
a Now you would think that
,, our city attorney, along with
I staff in the planning depart-
ment, could accomplish this
"cleanup." After all, you're just
*I talking about some minor
3 "housekeeping," and if it's
: S ) done in-house the effort
would certainly be more tax-
,payer-friendly.
The commission decided,
Ron Sapp however, to hire a consultant,
and thus began a tale of hor-
ror for all of us who care
THE NO about growth management in
'SPIN' ZONE Fernandina Beach.
You might have noticed
that my earlier description of the comprehensive
plan included the words,"... should contain our
community's goals and objectives regarding growth
management" This sentence implies a document
that legitimately reflects our community's vision for
our future. And for that document to be legitimate,
the citizens have to buy into it they have to accept
it.
That acceptance by the citizenry may not happen,
here's why:
1. Instead of simply "cleaning up" the LDRs, the
consultant began a massive overhaul.
At least one-third of the LDRs will be re-written,
maybe more. Question: Who authorized the change
in direction? One day we're going to Atlanta, next
day to Miami. Who made the decision?
2. These massive rewrites, these changes, are not
identified in drafts given to the public. They're not
highlighted, not underlined, not italicized, no identi-
fying characteristics whatsoever. Imagine, an inter-
ested citizen would have to spend days pouring over
the old LDRs and comparing them to the new -
word by word, sentence by sentence, chapter by
chapter. Question: Does this modified "water tor-
ture" system encourage citizen involvement, or dis-
courage it?'
3. The "water torture" continues when the con-


Shortening hours, reducing staff and
increasing the household assessment
are only Band-Aidsfor a hemorrhage.


Further, Mahaney's spreadsheets show that the
county has not been making required payments into
the escrow fund for closing the landfill, estimated at
$7 million. In a report to the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection a year ago, it was stated
that the county is $800,000 in arrears assuming the
landfill will be full by 2009.
The Clay County contract expires in September
2006, but to cancel it then the commissioners must
provide a one-year notice, so a decision must be
made by this September. The bad news of canceling
the Clay contract is the loss of about $2.8 million in
income that must be made up somehow. The good
news is that without Clay garbage, our landfill's life
will extend beyond the 2013 due date on the bond.
So, with the loss of Duval and Clay tipping fees
and with the growing amount of commercial trash
heading for Georgia, the landfill's cash shortfall will
be close to $5.5 million a year by the 'end of 2006.
At the Feb. 2 meeting, the commissioners and
Mahaney discussed ways to address this shortfall:
shortening hours, reducing staff, increasing the
household assessment While that's a good start and
we applaud Mahaney's efforts, they are only Band-
Aids for a hemorrhage.
Landfill staff salaries and benefits are projected
at $980,000 this year. Cutting staff by 50 percent, as
some who have been involved with the landfill sug-
gest, could cut costs by a half a million (only 10 per-
cent of the shortfall). But union contracts and
Florida law require specific staffing levels depend-
ing on operating hours and tonnage, so cutting staff
by that amount is fraught with problems and may
not be possible.
Increasing the household assessment isn't as
easy as it sounds. Some years ago when the county
set the assessment at $100, it violated state law in
doing so, which was the primary reason it was
reduced to $45. There is an involved formula for set-
ting the assessment. It is not legal to use simple
math: divide $2.2 million by 30,000 homes for an
assessment of $73.33. There has to be a balance
between the assessment and the gate rate. It is esti-


Bottom line ifyou care about
city growth management, you care

you care about the LDRs.


sultant allows only a couple of the draft (changed)
LDR chapters to trickle out at a time. Citizens are
forced to plow through pages that not only contain
none of the necessary definitions needed to interpret
them, but constantly refer them to parts of LDRs not
yet released. -
If you want to get a sense of what this issue is all
about, go down to YOUR city hall and ask for a copy
of YOUR-current LDRs. Then, ask for a copy of the
consultant's recommended changes. Now, see if you
can make any sense of it at all. You can't.
All of this wouldn't matter so much if there
weren't so much at stake. But if residential zoning
might be changed, we have the right to know and
have input The same for our tree ordinance and the
beach overlay district. If the opportunity for public
input in the development and permitting process is
to be limited by abolishing the Planning Advisory
Board and the Board of Adjustment, then we have a
right to know and have input
All of this begs the original question, "Who's in
charge here?" Well, the commission has three
options they can take control of the LDR rewrite
process by doing what they said they were going to
do in the first place. Make existing LDRs consistent
with the comprehensive plan and forget the massive,
unnecessary overhaul. Or they can instruct the con-
sultant to present an entire document for considera-
tion, with proposed changes clearly identified and
containing all definitions. Or, lastly, they can leave
this important growth management document in the
hands of those who've been in charge so far con-
sultants and bureaucrats. It's up to the commission.

Commission for 21 years. His column appears

VIEWPOINT/HARRY SIMMONS/AMERICAN SHORE AND BEACH PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION


President's budget bad for beaches


F or the third year in a row, the
Bush administration has pro-
posed far too little money to
restore and maintain
America's number one tourist
destination: its public beaches. Each
year, we see the White House take a
giant step backwards. The $46 million
proposed for beach restoration work in
fiscal year 2006 is one-third lower than
what the president proposed a year ago
and nearly two-thirds lower than what
Congress approved a few months ago.
That means less money to repair ero-
sion",wer, ~ 4 1ars- to restore critical
coastal habitat and an attack on
America's economy.
Last November, Congress passed
legislation that told the administration
not to make any changes in the feder-
al beach nourishment program with-
out getting congressional approval.
However, that didn't stop the White
House from repeating its claim that
the periodic renourishment of beach-
es should not involve any federal cost-
sharing. Ignoring the recommenda-
tions of the National Academy of
Sciences, the administration's budget
proposal sends a clear signal that it


A routine beach renourishment project began last week north of Main
Beach, but President Bush included no funding in his proposed budget
for a major reconstruction of Fernandina's beaches estimated to cost
$10 million.


wants to end a half century of success-
ful partnership with states, counties,
cities and towns that has prevented
coastal erosion and promoted public
recreation.
We are extremely concerned that


the proposed budget for the entire
civil works program reflects methods
of prioritizing that are at best confus-
ing and at worst inappropriate and
arbitrary. It is wrong to create budget-
ing standards that are both new and


unrelated to the basis on which
Congress originally authorized the
projects. We call upon the Army
Corps of Engineers and the Office of
Management and Budget to remove
the veil of secrecy that shrouds the
basic criteria it used to select which
studies and construction projects
would receive funding.
When the federal beach nourish-
ment is fully funded by Congress, as
we expect it will be, its total cost will
be the equivalent of just two interstate
highway interchanges. Americans
should be appalled that the Europe-i
Union annually spends 10 times
what the U.S. spends to repair its ero-
sion.
The American Shore and Beach
Preservation Association will work
with Congress to create wide, clean
and safe beaches for American fami-
lies to enjoy and which America's
economy greatly needs.
Harry Simmons, president of the
American Shore and Beach
Preservation Association, issued this
statement last week following the
release ofPresident Bush's proposed
budget.


mated the average residence produces about 1.2
tons of trash a year. If you assess residents X then
the tipping fee for commercial trash has to be rela-
tive (thus the $45 assessment and $40/ton tipping
fee). Raise the assessment and the tipping fee must
go up. We're already losing commercial trash to
Georgia because of the $40/$27 difference. If the
assessment goes to $60, say, then the Nassau gate
rate will have to be around $53/ton. If you run a
restaurant, where would you send your garbage?
Commercial haulers currently pay the county close
to $500,000 a year to dump at the landfill. Raise the
tipping fee and most of that half a mill will go to
Georgia.
So the folk who run Nassau County are between
a rock and a hard place, literally. They have to think
out of the box to get us out of this one. Here are
some ideas:
Only handle Nassau waste. That will extend
our landfill's life past 2013.
Refinance the debt. First determine how many
years past 2013 the landfill will last without the Clay
and Duval trash, then extend the debt to that date.
The borrowed $24 million wasn't all for the
new landfill, $10.5 million of it was to properly close
three old landfills. (Nassau violated state DEP rules
on those closings and got nailed for it, but that's
another story.) Separate that $10.5 million from the
$13.5 million cost of the new landfill into separate
accounts. Have two assessments: one a capital
assessment for the $10.5 million and the other an
operational assessment for the balance. Only the
operational assessment will affect the gate rate and
that will help to keep commercial waste here while
raising more cash to cover the shortfall.
Find a better way to keep commercial waste
here. The homeowners' assessment has a legal
basis in an MSBU (a municipal taxing unit designed
for a specific purpose). County Attorney Mike
Mullin should figure out a way to create an MSBU
for commercial waste; if commercial interests have
to pay an annual assessment they will have no incen-
tive to send their garbage to Georgia. (There's a
court decision that says a county can't require com-
mercial interests where to dump their trash, but an
MSBU assessment isn't a dumping requirement.)
This is the time for making bold decisions. The
tide has rushed out and is coming back with a
vengeance.

Nassau Homeowners' Council.

Amelia Arts Centre



gets $250,000 pledge


The Amelia Arts Centre has
received another major assist in its
campaign to purchase
Fernandina's First Baptist Church
and convert it into a multi-pur-
pose community art center.
Paul Bosland and his family
have pledged $250,000 toward the
cause, and Bosland has agreed to
serve on the center's board of
directors.
"Amelia Island is a very special
place," Bosland said in a press
release, "and a center for the arts
has the potential to enrich the
lives of everyone in the commu-
nity. To help assure the success of
this effort is a rare opportunity
we felt we could not pass up."
The gift will be dedicated to
the memory of Bosland's first
wife, Nicky, who was a president
of the Amelia Arts Academy and
an active supporter of the arts on
Amelia Island.
The Bosland pledge has
helped push the total raised by
the Amelia Arts Centre over $1
million.
According to Susan Parry, the
organization's executive director,

for the $750.000 challenge pledge offered anony-
mously by another donor last November.'

attainment of that milepost "vir-
tually assures that we will soon
qualify for the $750,000 challenge
pledge offered anonymously by
another donor last November.
Beyond that, we'll still need.to
raise a lot more money, but we're
confident that our goal of giving
the community a viable art center
definitely is within our grasp."
The Amelia Arts Centre
entered into an agreement last
March to purchase the First
Baptist Church facility at Fifth and
Alachua streets in Fernandina
Beach for $3 million, subject to
the organization's ability to raise
cash and pledges totaling $2.4 mil-

The center intends to offer a
broad spectrum of musical pro-
gramming and other acts pre-
sented by touring professionals
and by local talent as well. The
Amelia Arts Academy, which has
been offering instruction in both
musical and visual arts to students
of all ages for the past 12 years,
will be an anchor tenant at the

Eventually, the center will be

Mentors

make a

difference

Agreements to be signed
April 19 at Yulee Middle School
will mark the beginning of a rela-
tionship to be forged between
new mentors and the students
they will guide and coach for a
commitment of 10 years, says
Jody Mackle, program director
of Nassau County Take Stock in
Children.
"The people in this commu-
nity give back to the communi-
ty, in this case by working one-
on-one with a child," Mackle
says. 'The Take Stock program
requires that every child have a
mentor who signs an agreement
to take part in the program, and
this year, we started with five
and wound up with 10," she says.
To finance the statewide pro-
gram, the state matches what-
ever monies are raised locally,
and Nassau County has received
$100,000 from the state.
Take Stock in Children helps
middle and high school students
from low income families
achieve success; gives college
and vocational scholarships;
offers guidance from caring
mentors; commits 10 years to
each student; encourages
parental involvement; and
requires students and parents
to sign a participation agree-
ment.
'That's because children liv-
ing in poverty have a higher
dropout rate, lower academic
performance, lower college
attendance and graduation rate,
and a higher youth crime rate,"
Mackle says.
To participate, students must
be selected in grades 6, 7 and 8
by a committee of teachers and
community representatives; sign
a contract agreeing to stay drug-
and crime-free; maintain satis-
factory grades; exhibit good
behavior in school; and, have a
financial need and determina-
tion to succeed.
Take Stock in Children helps
by connecting caring business-
es and citizens with children
who want to succeed, and by
building and sustaining both
public and private financial sup-
port through its scholarship
program for low income chil-
dren. Four years of college
tuition can be bought for $4,500
whiih lthn i.k mnitcheI d,.Ull.tr
lor dollar by the Florida Prepaid
College Foundation.
"Mentors and students are
paired, and we have mentees in
all four middle schools and all
three high schools in the coun-
ty," Mackle says. The weekly
mentoring session takes place
on the school campus at a time
convenient for mentor and
student This summer, new men-
tors will get formal training from
Kesler Mentoring Connection,
with which Take Stock Nassau
has an agreement to screen
and train local mentors. Formal
mentoring will begin after Labor
Day.
'Take Stock gives the men-
tors a 'tool kit' with activities
they can use, and we also hold
"Mentor Mixes," Mackle says.
"Mentoring is probably the most
effective way to make a differ-
ence in a child's life."


Two-way street mentors and students


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
To know what it is to light up a
life, one has only to look at the
smiling, confident faces of two
students and their mentors cur-
rently involved in the Take Stock
in Children mentoring program
at Fernandina Beach Middle
School and Fernandina Beach
High School.
High school senior Ashley
Robinson says she applied for the
program in the same year her
mentor, Mary Brannen, did -
"and we were both accepted,"
Robinson says, "and we were
paired because my ambition
since second grade has been to
be an astronaut and Mary was a
charter plane pilot and flight
instructor."
Brannen says it has been "a lot
of fun" to see Ashley's love of avi-
ation. "She has been working as a
receptionist for McGill Aviation,"
she says.
Robinson has been accepted at
Emory Riddle University in
Daytona, where she wants to
major "in aerospace," have a
minor in piloting and earn a
degree in aeronautical science.
She comes well-armed with prior
participation in rewarding activi-
ties.
Besides being a member of
the high school marching band
for four years, Robinson has been
in Junior ROTC for two years and
Youth Leadership Jacksonville for
one year.
She is also a member of Youth
in Action, a community outreach
program "with rewards," she
says, and there, too, she received
leadership training, explaining:
"You pick a community project
and Youth in Action gives $2,000
for doing it;" and she has spent
four years on the track team and
has been an officer for two years
in Upward Bound. With all that,
Robinson's grade point average is
3.6 out of a possible 4.0.
Smiling with satisfaction,
Brannen says a good friend, who
is also a mentor, "told me I would
like it." And what makes it even
more worthwhile is that it gives
deserving students a scholar-
ship," Brannen says. "I have been
with Ashley for four years."
Brannen says most of the stu-
dents in Take Stock in Children
"are good students. They have to
earn the right GPA (grade point
average) to receive their tuition.
"Take Stock in Children only pro-
vides tuition for public schools,
"so we have to get more," she

says. "We have to get more
mentors because the only inhibit-
ing factor in mentoring students
is the one-on-one relationship.
The important thing is continu-
ity."
But, Brannen says, "mentor-
ing is a two-way street. I like to
think of it as: I have helped
Ashley and she has helped me."
"I feel really lucky," Robinson
says. "We're perfect together.
And we've been together for all
four years."
Mary Jarvis is eighth-grader
Anna Pollard's mentor at
Fernandina Beach Middle
School, and she became interest-
ed in the Take Stock in Children
program through a friend. She
describes the experience this
way: "It feels like going on a blind
date."
A librarian by training, Jarvis
says she approached Anna at
their initial meeting by asking her
whether she had read a certain
book. "Not only had she read that

book," Anna's mentor says, "but
she was prepared on her own
initiative to discuss several
other books, too. I was mightily
impressed."
Jarvis says she has told Anna
that "she is the boss of our ses-
sions," the former librarian says.
"And when my neighbor who got
me into this found out that I had
been matched with Anna, she
told me Anna is a gem."
Quiet, but with smiling, alert
eyes, Anna takes in the conversa-
tion and volunteers that Take
Stock in Children "is wonderful.
We get to go lots of places all the
time and still keep up with friends
in the program. Recently, we
went on a retreat so the students
from the program in East and
West Nassau could meet.
Musing about her experiences
as a mentor, Jarvis sums them up,
saying: "You kind of lose track
mid-year, but when you see them
graduate, you pick right up on
them. They're in for the long

haul. It's hard when they go off to
college. But they come back," she
says.
'The mentor and the mentee
chat and have a lot of fun," Jarvis
says, "but Anna works very hard
and is a lot of fun. We discuss a
lot about books, and about col-
lege, too but as a mentor, I
don't want to step on the family's
toes, either."


"I plan to go to Harvard,"
Pollard says. "I want to do
research in the medical field or in
the sciences."
The eighth-grader smiles, and
Jarvis says Anna is being raised
by her grandparents, "and her
grandpa said to me: This girl can
be anything she wants to be.' And
I know now that that is true," her
proud mentor says.

City police receive accreditation


The Fernandina Beach Police
Department was awarded accred-
ited status by the Commission for
Florida Law Enforcement
Accreditation at a commission
meeting this month in Kissimmee.
The commission is based in
Orlando and reviews all aspects of
an agency's policies and proce-
dures; management, operations
and support services to determine
compliance with 276 recognized
standards of excellence.
Chairman Andrew J. Scott III
formally presented the certificate
of accreditation to Chief Robert
"Chip" Hammond and the depart-
ment's accreditation manager, Sgt.
Shane Waas, on Feb. 9, at the com-
mission meeting in Kissimmee.
City Manager Robert Mearns, City
Commissioner John Crow and
Police Capt. James Thompson
were also in attendance.
Undergoing the voluntary state
accreditation process provides an
agency with a "quality assurance
review" and encourages intense
self-scrutiny, resulting in more effi-
cient and effective daily operations.
Becoming accredited by the
Commission for Florida Law
Enforcement Accreditation is con-
sidered a significant accomplish-
ment and this status is held in high
esteem by the criminal justice
community.
"By choosing to participate in
the formal and thorough review
by the commission, the Fernandina
Beach Police Department can doc-
ument to the citizens of Florida
that it adheres to the highest stan-
dards of professionalism and is
among the finest in the state," said
Hammond.
Fernandina Beach Police began
pursuing state accreditation in
August 2002 after Hammond

learned of the program and
assigned Waas to head the pro-
gram as the department's accred-
itation manager.
The first step was entering into
a written agreement to bring the
department into compliance with
applicable standards of accredita-
tion within 24 months. Next the
policies and procedures of the
department were completely over-
hauled to effectively comply with
the accreditation standards and
most modern, universally accepted,
legally defendable practices. Proof


files were then constructed for
each of the 276 standards. The files
contain documentation of compli-
ance with accreditation standards.
During this time public awareness
efforts were also made to encour-
age community understanding of
the accreditation program.
A complete self-evaluation was
then undertaken to assess the
agencies compliance with accred-
itation standards. During this time
a mock team of assessors were
brought in for three days of
assessments. Recommendations


made by the mock assessors were
then implemented and prepara-
tions for the final on-site were
begun. The final on-site inspection
consisted of three days of intense
scrutiny of the agency and verifi-
cation of compliance with all appli-
cable accreditation standards. Two
minor corrections were made after
the on-site with a re-visit confirm-
ing full compliance.
The assessment team then rec-
ommended to the commission that
the Fernandina Beach Police
Department be accredited.


We must learn to share the road'


LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
An increase in traffic deaths on
state roads is unacceptable, Florida
Highway Patrol Public Affairs
Officer Lt. Bill Leeper said Friday.
He said the highway patrol,
Florida Sheriff's Association and
Florida Police Chiefs Association
have agreed that traffic fatalities in
Florida rose to"an unacceptablee
level" in the first month of the new
year.
Preliminary reports indicated


that 278 people were killed in traf-
fic-related crashes during January,
an increase of about 40 percent
over last year.
"With Florida's population
increasing annually, including an
increase in the number of motor
vehicles on our roadways, there
has been a corresponding increase
in the total number of vehicle crash-
es. Many of the traffic c:raishe. :and

behavior, especially when it endan-
gers others on the road," said
Leeper.
Increases in aggressive driving,
including speeding, illegal lane
changing, tailgating, distracted
driving and impaired driving, cou-
pled with the failure of many
motorists to use seat belts, are con-
tributing causes in recent deadly
crashes.
Leeper said the single most
important action motorists could
take to help ensure their safety is to
use seatbelts. This past Christmas
holiday period, 80 percent of the
drivers and occupants killed in vehi-
cles equipped with seatbelts were
not using them, he said.
Intensive joint and independent
enforcement initiatives have been
planned and will be conducted
throughout the state in an attempt
to reduce the fatality rate. The
results of these enforcement oper-
ations will be released to the pub-
lic.
In addition, grant funding for


public safety awareness campaigns
will continue to be sought to
address poor driving behavior and
increase traffic safety awareness
in our state.
Leeper recommends that driv-
ers follow these tips: Allow enough
time to get to your destination; obey
posted speed limits; always use seat
belts and child restraint devices;
maintain a safe distance between
vehicles; 'obey traffic control
devices (red lights and stop signs)
at intersections; use turn signals;
don't consume alcohol or drugs
and drive; drive in the right lane
and pass in the left lane; take fre-
quent breaks when traveling, and,
when possible, rotate drivers dur-
ing extended road trips; maintain
your vehicle in good working con-
dition, paying special attention to
your brakes and tires, and be con-
siderate of others during your trav-
els; Driving may seem to be an
isolated act, but it is not. "We all
must learn to share the road," said
Leeper.

Dog stops
gun smugglers
A Nassau County Sheriff's
Office police dog found a cache of
guns stolen from South Carolina
during a traffic stop Sunday.
'The vehicle, a U-Haul truck,
was registered to Honduras
Cargo Inc. of Lancaster S.C., and
its contents were bound for
Honduras. However, after the dog
indicated there was something in
the back of the truck, deputies
cut the locks and removed boxes
for X-ray inspection. That inspec-
tion revealed several guns
wrapped in aluminum foil and hid-
den in a television set, a stereo
speaker and a black case.
No magazines,
please
A Fernandina Beach man told
police Sunday that he opened his
front door when a woman outside
said she was selling magazines
and was greeted by a man who
"jumped out from behind a wall
and hit him in the face." The man,
who lives on First Avenue, told
police the incident may have
stemmed from a previous alter-
cation.

nection with the theft of $2,000

Former deputy



back in jail


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
A former Nassau County
deputy faced with weapons, bur-
glary and child abuse charges will
have to wait in jail for his jury
trial.
Sam Adolph Lucero, 33, is
accused of holding other officers
at bay and using his own children
as human shields.in an armed
standoff in Callahan July 24.
In a special hearing Friday,
Circuit Court Judge Robert Foster
accepted a motion from the State
Attorney's Office to keep Lucero
in jail without bond until his
appearance, scheduled for Feb.
24. If it is rescheduled, he will
remain in jail.
He had been released on his
own recognizance Oct 28, but has
since violated a number of condi-
tions in his release, said Assistant
State Attorney Granville "Doc"
Burgess.
Burgess said Lucero and his
ex-wife, Kimberly, got into an alter-
cation at a Jacksonville Dairy
Queen on Feb. 6 when he met her
there.
"He was confined to his
house," Burgess said. "He didn't
have any right to be there, peri-
od."
During Lucero's Oct. 28
release, Foster had ordered that
he immediately begin treatment
with a physician, live with his
father in Middleburg and stay
away from Nassau County, return-
ing only for court appearances.
He was to have no contact with his
children without therapist accom-
paniment or approval and was
ordered to observe a curfew for


employment He
was to pay $925
support in addi-
tion to a $2,000
cash payment
and file a weekly
report to the
Lucero state attorney's
office.
Burgess
noted that Lucero was not filing
the weekly reports since his
release.
In the July 24 altercation,
Lucero was accused of violating a
judge's order protecting his ex-
wife and later held their children,
a boy and girl ages 5 and 7, in the
home of his ex-wife's parents as
law enforcement officials massed
outside.
At one point, he reportedly
held up one of his children to
shield himself from gunfire and at
another point fired his own
weapon in the air twice.
Lucero was arrested after a
sheriffs sergeant fired two bean-
bag rounds, hitting him the in
back of the legs and dropping him
to the ground.
The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office fired him soon after the
incident
At his Aug. 19 arraignment,
Lucero pleaded not guilty to
aggravated stalking, two counts
of committing a third-degree
felony with a weapon, two counts
of child abuse, armed burglary,
shooting or throwing deadly mis-
siles, discharging a firearm in pub-
lic and four counts of violating an
injunction protecting against
domestic violence.

They wore long, white gowns,
elbow-length satin gloves and a
strand of pearls around their necks.
But for three students who
recently stepped into society
dressed like princesses, learning
to discipline themselves from the
inside carried even greater impor-
tance than how they looked on the
outside.
Tabithajamison, Della Johnson
and Jamesha Moment stood before
their family and friends in a cere-
mony that celebrated their transi-
tion from girls to young ladies. The
Order of Essence, a local women's
community organization, presented
the trio during its inaugural debu-
tante ball at the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center.
The "Evening of Elegance" gave
the young ladies the opportunity
to demonstrate the poise and social
graces they cultivated during sev-
eral weeks of instruction "to pre-
pare them for their future roles in
,';iet'.," "
The Order invited Tabitha, Della
and Jamesha to become members
of the Black Pearl Junior Service
Sorority, founded last summer "to
establish a standard of excellence"
for young ladies ages 14-18. The
students met the grade point aver-
age requirement, submitted letters
of reference and completed all
workshops and community serv-
ice assignments needed to partici-
pate in the ball.
A sponsor mentored each young
lady as she navigated through the
process of developing her character.
Sponsors Christi Richo, Claire
Coverdell and Paula Michelle
Gardner encouraged the debu-
tantes to "keep God first" and refuse
to "settle for mediocrity."
'Take on the spirit of excellen-
cy," said Gardner, who developed
the program.
And excellence requires more
than a focus on, outer beauty,
Coverdell said. "We want them to be
good role models," she said, adding
that the students need experiences
that prepare them to live outside


horizons


their hometown. "Because they're
young, they don't realize it's not all
the glitz and glamour. It's not just
external. There is a lot of internal
work," she said.
During the seven-week pro-
gram, the debutantes' work includ-
ed career preparation and work-
shops in tea service, table manners
and etiquette. They also attended a
college fair and sex education class.
After the workshop on table eti-
quette, Jamesha "came home and
did a full demonstration," her aunt
Vernetta Spaulding said.
"She became much more inter-
ested in college," Spaulding said.
"Her concept of what she could get
out of college and higher educa-
tion changed.... This whole pro-
gram has done wonders for
Jamesha."
Jamesha said she learned how
important it is "to speak up for your-
self' and to develop friendships.
"It was really strict," said
Tabitha, noting that missing a meet-
ing meant paying a fine. Tabitha,
who wants to become a first grade
teacher, earned a crown and the
title "Miss Black Pearl 2005" for
completing all her requirements at
the fastest rate. She and her fellow
sorority sisters agreed that the
structure taught them responsibil-
ity. Participation in the program
also increased their self-confidence,
they said.
"You can do things that you
don't normally do," Della said.
Gardner said she developed the
program because she observed
that girls in the community were
accepting less than the best a life
has to offer. "We need to show them
that it doesn't have to be this way,"
she said. "Instead of talking about
them, lefs do something about it."
Even though the students have
completed the program, they will
continue to contribute to the soror-
ity. 'They'll come back and they'll
help," Gardner said. "It's their job
now to bring in more girls."
And Tabitha, Della and Jamesha
have already begun sharing what
they have learned. "Head for the
top," they said in unison, "because
the bottom is too crowded."

SPORTS TALK
JOHN L. CRAWFORD



Canseco

aside, MLB

needs to

open its eyes
ajor League
Baseball offi-
cials said last
week that they
would not likely investigate
allegations made by former
player Jose Canseco that
several current players have
partaken in steroid use.
Canseco said in his recently
published book that he, for-
mer player Mark McGuire
and current New York
Yankee Jason Giambi shot
steroids together in a bath-
room stall at Oakland
Coliseum when all played for
the Athletics. He also said he
introduced the drugs to Ivan
Rodriguez, Rafael Palmeiro
and Juan Gonzales.
OK, so baseball officials
don't want to put any cre-
dence into a statement made
by a guy who will be best
remembered for a ball
bouncing off his head in left
field, that's understandable.
But what about the tell-
tale physical signs? Have
you seen Giambi lately? He
looks as if somebody popped
him with a pin and deflated
him. And we all saw the
physical transformation a 38-
year-old Barry Bonds made
a few years ago after
McGuire and Sammy Sosa
battled for the home run
record.
Baseball doesn't need the
wisdom of an over-the-hill
retiree looking to capitalize
on book sales. Just a quick
peep over the wool that is
obviously pulled tight-over
the eyes of those in charge
would do the trick...
Did you hear where
Baltimore Ravens star line-
backer Ray Lewis, acquitted
of a murder that happened
during Super Bowl week in,
Atlanta a few years back,
received a threatening e-mail
from a person rumored to be
a relative of the man killed?
Wouldn't that be like Freddy
Kruger receiving a threat
from the mom of a girl
whose dreams he showed up
in? ...
That the NHL season is
in limbo because of a labor
mess is probably an after-
thought to most here in the
South. I have to admit that I
haven't missed hearing
about the league that seem-
ingly plays 10 months out of
the year. But putting myself
in the shoes of NHL fans, I
have to empathize a little. I
mean, could you imagine the
depression here in the Bible
Belt if football were canceled
for a season? All the money
we spend getting ready for
the big games would likely
go into therapy.
So on behalf of football
fans who are counting the
days until the face paint and
barbecue tongs are taken
back down from the attic I
say, "Hang in there our
hockey brethren. You'll have
your bratwurst and brawls
back before you know it." ...
Since football ended last
week, I've had two options:
Catch up on the honey-do
list or twiddle my thumbs.
Man, my thumbs are
sore...
Fans of University of
Florida basketball, while
undoubtedly happy that the
Gators are competing and
playing with more intensity
of late, would probably like
to push the proverbial fast
forward button on the sea-
son. Because we all know
what is likely to happen
between now and the first
round of the NCAA
Tournament: Kentucky wins
the SEC Championship and
the SEC Tournament and
Florida bows out of confer-
ence play early and squeaks
into the Big Dance with a
six-seed.

Eric Jones shoots one-handed
because cerebral palsy limits the
use of his hand and leg. But the
disability didn't stop him when he
decided to try out for the boys
basketball team at Hilliard Middle-
Senior High School.
"In August, the first day of
school, he walked up," Hilliard
Coach Randy Smith said. "He
said, 'Coach, when's the first day
of basketball?' Because we're a
small school, it worked out for
him to be able to play. He went to
every day of conditioning."
Jones said he was always told


he couldn't play on a team.
"I didn't know if I would make
it or not," he said.
But he did and the junior has
his own following.
"Crowdwise, everybody goes
crazy when I get on the court," he
said. "Everybody says 'Eric, Eric."'
. His teammates accepted him
right away.
"None of the guys see me dif-
ferent," Jones said. "They're like
my brothers."
Zack Whittenburg, a senior,
said he wasn't sure what to expect
when Jones joined the Flashes.
"I knew there was something
wrong with him," Whittenburg

News-Leader
Bodine Massengill, 18, won the
18-and-under super late model title
Feb. 5 in the Young Gun Shootout
in Savannah, Ga., an event that
showcased young drivers from
across the country.
Massengill kicked off his third
full season on the quarter-mile dirt
track in Georgia, finishing 10 car
lengths ahead of 26 other drivers in
the 25-lap event. Massengill will
be competing on the Carolina class
circuit this season and plans to run
for the rookie of the year title.
He drove in a handful of races
last year and was the youngest driv-
er to set the pole at Sumter, S.C.,
and placed second in the race last
year. Two years ago, he won a race


in Brunswick, Ga.
Born on the same day Jeff
Bodine won a race, Massengill said
the nickname has stuck with him.
"If you say Jeff, I wouldn't know
who you were talking to," Massen-
gill said.
When he's not racing, he helps
on the pit crew for teammates
Mikey Massengill, 20, and Jason
Fitzgerald, 28. The trio drive for
Buddy's Auto Clinic in Yulee. The
three are in Volusia this week for
the regular season opener.

57 Jills, 19 Jacks participate in second annual tourney


The women of Long Point at Amelia Island
Plantation played the second annual Three Jills and
a Jack tournament Thursday. The popular format
specifies that three members invite a male member
to be their fourth. That male may not be a spouse of
any of the three ladies nor may he be a profession-
al.
Part of the fun occurred when the men were told,
that they had to play from the red (ladies) tees. A
roaming photographer captured a few of the special
moments as many men's tee shots could be seen
flying over marshes and/or into the trees. Two
ended up on A1A.
The women treated "their man" to lunch in the
clubhouse afterward where prizes were awarded.

FBWGA plays low putts
It had to be strategy, confidence and maybe a bit
of luck for the ladies of the Fernandina Beach
Women's Golf Association on Feb. 8. The game of
the day was low putts. Linda Scott (29) took first
place in the first flight and there was a second-place
tie between Shirley McKain and Donna Dandurand
(33). Robin Ritchey (32) placed first in the second
flight while Pat Robinson and Wyn Adams (33) tied
for second.
In the third flight, Peggy Rusk (30), was first and
Georgene Carlton and Mary Roesch (32) tied for
second. Pam Gilles (34) took first place in the
fourth flight. Sam Havourd and Lettie Laurent (35)
tied for second.

Men's blitz results
It was almost springlike when 99 players teed off
in the Fernandina Beach Men's Golf Association
Wednesday blitz last week. With an 80, good for
plus 8 points, Donnie Fussell took individual honors
while Peter Dietz (87), Jack Sipes (81), Bob Best
(76), Tommy Purvis (83) and Jim Gibson (80) all
shared second-place individual honors at plus 7.
Fussell, Gibson and Best along with Ronnie
Boatright (76, plus 1) teamed up to win first place at

plus 23. There was a tie for second place at plus 12
between the teams of Jim White (92, plus 5),

plus 6), Bill Jones Jr. (89, plus 2) and Ron

Jim Raffone (86, plus 2), Lee Kaufman (85, plus
1), Bobby Burnette (80, plus 4) and Sammy Alvarez
(80, plus 4) finished fourth with a plus 11.
There was a closest to the pin contest on the par
3s sponsored by Joe Parrish Bail Bonds with the
gold tee winners being D.D. Miller (3 south) and
Bobby Burnette (9 west). White tee winners were
Gerald Wilder (7 south) and Bill Jones. Jr. (6 west).
Cooler weather and a chilly breeze greeted the
50 players who came out to play in the Friday blitz
on the north and west courses. Ray Huskey, with an
82 and plus 9 points, took individual honors.
Runners-up at plus 6 were Tom Gray (80), Ron
Dandurand (84), Ernie Locke (81), Kenny Pickett
(81) and Dick Peterson (93).
Three teams shared first place at plus 5 -
Locke, Jim Greenwood (82, minus 1), Tom Harmon
(88, minus 6), Pickett; Dave Mason (81, plus 4),
Robert Johnson (89, minus 1), Buddy Riddle (94,

(89, minus 2) and D.D. Miller (89, even), George
Henderson (103, plus 3), D. Peterson, John

Fourth place at plus 4 went to Steve Johnson
(73, even), Jim White (98, minus 2), Ed Hunter (88,
plus 2) and Chris Gill (89, plus 4).
There is a sign-up sheet in the pro shop for a

Wanted- Ugly boat
The Savannah International
Boat Show has partnered with
Sprint and Cumulus Radio to
promote a contest in search of
the Ugliest Boat in Savannah.
The "Ugliest Boat Contest" will
be promoted on Cumulus Radio
stations and during The
Savannah International Boat
Show to be held at the
Savannah International Trade &
Convention Center and In-
Water on the Savannah River
March 4-6.
Submit photos of old, neg-
lected boats by Monday to
www.SavannahInternational
BoatShow.com/ugliestboat. All
photos will be posted on the
website and listeners can go on-
line and cast their votes for the
top five ugliest Monday through
Feb. 25. The top five owners
will be announced and contact-
ed by March 1. The winner of
the "ugliest boat" will be
announced at the Boat Show on
March 6.
The top five finalists will
receive boat show tickets and
seafood festival food passes.
The grand prize package for the
ugliest boat includes a weekend

Imperiled species
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
directed its staff to proceed with
rule revisions to improve the
agency's process for classifying
inipriled ,p7cI,'i? Coimission-
ers plan to take final action on
the matter during their April 14-
15 meeting in Tallahassee.
Since 1999, the FWC has
used criteria developed by the
prestigious International Union
for the Conservation of Nature
to classify imperiled species as
endangered, threatened or
species of special concern.
IUCN has revised the criteria
since then, and the FWC has
decided it would be wise to
adopt the revisions. IUCN will
train FWC scientists in how to
apply the new criteria and to
involve scientific experts from
outside the agency in classifica-
tion decisions.
Classifications of some
species are likely to change
under the new criteria, howev-
er, the level of protection will
not change with reclassification
unless a species' condition indi-
cates changes would benefit the
species. In all cases, protection


will be according to each
species' needs rather than its
classification. However, any
species that faces a 10 percent
chance of extinction within the
next 100 years will qualify for a
spot somewhere on the imper-
iled species list.
Commissioners approved a
recommendation for FWC sci-
entists to work with outside
experts to evaluate petitions to
change species' classifications
based on species' status in
Florida. The FWC will consider
petitions it receives between
July 1 and Dec. 31 for changes
to the list. It will not consider
other petitions except in emer-
gencies.

Boats can offer a lot of sporting fun on the water.


The best and worst of boating


A phrase often heard
among boaters is "The
best day in your life is
when you purchase a
boat and the worst day is when
you have to sell it."
Purchasing a boat entails a lot
of exciting promises of being on
the water with friends and family
members enjoying many types of
boating including sailing, fishing
and sightseeing. Purchasing a
new boat is much like buying a
new car; you just can't wait to
climb aboard and try it out.
Selling a boat can be the
worst experience in your life, but
it doesn't have to be.
There isn't any one product
that depreciates as fast as a boat.
As soon as you drop a new boat
in the water, both salt and fresh
water begin to attack the electri-
cal components. The.damaging

fiberglass and other portions
that are exposed to the sun.
Boaters can actually save a lot
of money by first talking with
other boaters concerning their
boating needs before they make
a boating purchase. Make sure
you know exactly what kind of
boat will best fit your needs
before making that big invest-
ment.
I would also recommend visit-
ing a major boat show and talk-
ing with some of the experts who
are always on hand to enlighten
boaters on what is new in the
boating world and how exactly
can a boat be rigged with acces-
sories to fit their needs.
Believe me, it's often the
accessories on a boat that dra-
matically increase the final price
of a new boat. For example, a bay
fisherman wouldn't need to have
a high-priced color fish finder
installed on his shallow water
skiff. Instead, he would be better
off with an inexpensive digital
depth finder. The cost between
the two units could be thousands
of dollars. Another big concern
is when you have to sell the boat.
You will never be able to get the
money out of the expensive fish
finder.
Another major concern is pur-
chasing a brand name boat. You
may have to pay a little more, but
when you sell your boat, you will
definitely be able to sell it faster
and for lots more money. More
importantly, most new brands of

Selling your boat often means
taking a big, big loss. I really
can't think of any one product
that depreciates as fast as a boat
But, if you make a reasonable
purchase and take care of your
boat properly, you will stand to
save a lot of money. This is why it
is so important when purchasing
a new boat to make sure that it is
rigged so that when the day
comes that you will have to sell
your boat, someone will be will-
ing to purchase it for a reason-
able price.
Such accessories as a wind-
less to electrically retrieve a
heavy anchor or an onboard fully
automatic battery charger are
great selling points. On the other
hand, you might not be able to
retrieve the original cost of
installing two fish finders on
your 18-foot redfish skiff.
Taking proper care of you
fishing boat will also save you
lots of money when it comes
time to sell your boat. This
means keeping all ofthe electri-
cal connections dry and protect-
ed from corrosion with a type of
corrosion block. Wash and dry
your boat after each and every
boating outing. If salt is left on
your boat for more than a day, it
begins to corrode your boat's
hardware instantly and there is
no reversing of this deadly
process. It's very difficult to sell
a boat that has been eaten up by
saltwater.
When it comes time to sell
your boat, take several digital
pictures of your boat, including
the trailer, storage boxes, power,
cabin and all of the boat's compo-

harder because we see him out

hard as he can. So it makes us
strive to be the best we can. "
"Whenever he hits a shot,
everybody goes crazy. It's like we
won the championship."
"Other schools wouldn't give
him a chance to play," senior David
Snead said. "You wouldn't think
somebody could do it playing with
one hand. I haven't witnessed any-
thing he can't do. He can do it all."
Coach Myron Saunders said
his skepticism vanished quickly.
"I was kind of worried,"
Saunders said. "The conditioning

to issuance of any permit. Any
petition shall be based only
on objections to the permit
that were raised with reason-
able specificity during the 30

strates to the Administrator of

must meet the requirements
of 42 U.S.C. Section

A crown is a crown, even when it's Sir


o who'd you see? Most
island Super Bowl stories
have been exchanged. I
wasn't going to write one
more column, but this story is
just too good.
Every conversation over the
last week has included at least
one reference to the celebrities
that were or were not on the
island. I have heard confirmed
sightings of Gene Hackman, Jane
Seymour and Burt Reynolds.
There were sightings of Amelia
Island favorite celebrity John
Travolta, who always charms
those he comes in contact with.
We kind of feel like he is our offi-
cial celebrity.
Others were sighted too, but


only recog-

The athletes were tough to pick-


out without the uniforms on.
No contest the best story of
all happened to Dr. Rob Van Etta.
Van Etta has a successful dental
practice on the island and has
generously donated his time
doing pro bono work for those
needing dental care through
Barnabas Center.
Van Etta got an unexpected
call from a needy person on
Super Bowl weekend.
The emergency call came in
and he was instructed to get to
the hotel and that it involved
someone pretty darn high-profile.
So on Super Bowl Sunday Van
Etta drove to the hotel as
instructed and was whisked away
-in a limousine to Jacksonville.

Have you ever seen a
white German Shepherd? If
not, then you must come for
a visit to the Nassau
Humane Society shelter and
meet Stormy. She is gor-
geous. She is pure white
from nose to tail. The person
who named her must have
been thinking about a big
snow storm up north at the
time. She is about 2 years
old and is well trained to
walk on a leash, thanks to
the volunteer angel that has
been working with her. She
is very smart as well as
great with kids. If you have a
family (no cats is her prefer-
ence) that has a big heart for
a big dog, Stormy is your
girl!
Ebony is the complete
opposite in color to Stormy,
she is all black from her
nose to her toes! She has a
beautiful coat and loves to
be groomed by the wonder-
ful volunteer angel that has
worked with her. She also is
about 1-2 years old. If you
have a family (she has not
mentioned if she will allow
dogs) with a big heart, then
Ebony is your girl!
The adoption fee is $90
for dogs and $75 for cats.
This is used to pay for the
services already completed
on the pets, including spay
or neuter, shots and neces-
sary testing.
On Feb. 19 the shelter
will be closed for the day
while the adoptables take a
day outing to the monthly
adoption day at Petsmarts in
Jacksonville. The dogs will


be available for adoption
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the
Petsmart on Southside
Boulevard near the Avenues
Mall. The cats will be avail-
able for adoption from 10
a.m. until 4 p.m. at the
Petsmart by the Regency
Mall on Monument Road.
Those that come back to the
shelter will be available on
Sunday at the shelter,
Airport Road in Fernandina

Hi, I'm Rocky, or Rock
Man or Rocket. I have lots
of names, unlike those poor
two kittens in last week's
paper still waiting for all of
you guys to come in and
enter the contest to name
them! Yeah, they're your
"normal" domestic all sweet
and cute kittens. Boring if
you ask me.
Take me, for example, I'm
anything but boring, but
then I started on the wild
side. They call it feral, born
out under a trailer, not a
human around, just me my
mom and my littermates.
That's how it was the first
couple, three months of my
life, then one day the Angels
came with traps and nabbed
us! So it's taken a little while
for me to see that humans
are OK.
Fact is, I've learned to
purr really good, but being
held is still pretty scary
unless I really know you. My


foster mom says I'll make
someone the finest kitty ever
cause feral kittens bond on
one person and often attach
much more dearly than
domestics. So I'm here at
the thrift shop waiting for
you to come in and take me
home because adopting me
just might be more fun than
watching TV! Listen up,
that's Cats Angels Shop &
Adopt, located next to Best
Friends Cards, Gifts &
Party, across Eighth Street
from Taco Bell. We're open
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday,
Wednesday, Friday and
Saturday.
Volunteers are needed to
help staff the store, even for
two hours at a time or what-
ever you can give. Play with
the cats and kittens in the
adoption center as you help
raise funds for the
spay/neuter program. If you
are interested, stop by the
store.
