State probes



finances of



county office


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
State investigators are looking
into the financial records of the
Nassau County Clerk of Courts
office. .:
New Clerk of Court John'
Crawford said Friday his office'
uncovered irregularities and asked
for assistance from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement.
"One of our major investigative
focuses is economic crime," Special


Nassau County Sheriff's
Sgt. John Slebos, above,
explains Monday what's
allowed to protesters
for and against the
Adam & Eve shop at
A1A and Barnwell
Road. Demonstrators
opposing the store
began their protest Feb.
28, while a new group
supporting it began
Saturday. Slebos told
them they could not
hinder commerce, urge
motorists to honk their
horns or interfere with
traffic on A1A or in the
shopping center park-
ing lot.

City OKIs impact fee hike


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have given final approval to
an impact fee increase for new res-
idential and commercial develop-
ment.
The fees will cover capital
improvement costs for new growth
in parks and recreation, fire and
police protection and public facili-
ties.
Although commissioners
approved 'the fee increase, they
expressed ambivalence about the
allocation of funds from the fees for.
mostly parks and recreation capi-
tal improvements. "I see more
money being needed for police and
fire as a result of development than
I do recreation." Vice Mayor
Beano Roberts said. "About 70 per-
cent of these impact fees go to
recreation. Police and fire generate
about 40 percent of our annual
budget Therein lies the disparity

to me. We can buy police cars with
impact fees. But what good is a
police car if you don't have some-
body to drive it? We need more
police officers because' the city
grows. And it bothers me that we
can't include police officer salaries
in impact fees."
The commission voted 4-1 on
March 1 to raise fees.
Commissioner Mike Lamb voted
against the measure.
While impact fee use is set by
the state legislature, the courts'
interpretation has served as the


deciding factor in howfees can be
used, City Attorney Debra Braga
said.
"The city attorney is quite cor-
rect. The legislature encourages
the use of impact fees to fund cap-
ital that is for growth." City
Manager Bob Mearns said, refer-
ring to Chapter 163 of the Florida
Statutes. "Repeatedly, as Debra
will tell you, the courts have struck
down any use of 'impact fees for
those things not associated with
growth, that is operation and main-
tenance of what you have. We
struggled with that a couple of
budgets .ago' and we managed to
buy some police cars with impact
fees because we had expanded the
police department, but there had
never been impact fees used to
support that expansion. But ongo-
ing expenses, that's something the
courts have repeatedly barred the
. use of impact fees for."

Agent in Charge Dominick Pape
said. "That's how we're looking at it
at this juncture."
Crawford's office said Friday in
a press release that ".. some irreg-
ularities have surfaced in the Clerk

tance of an outside authority, (the)

A Nassau County Sheriff's lieu-
tenant was arrested Friday for
fraudulently buying thousands of
cell phones at a government dis-
count and reselling them.
Lt. Clarence "Jake" Card, 46,

He is charged with commniur-
cations fraud and grand theft and is
suspended from the force without
pay, said Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagrves. '
If convicted, Card faces up to
35 years in prison, the maximum
sentence possible on the charges
against him.
Card has been employed by the


sheriff's office:
since 19'95 in the
d. administrative
section of the
S Nassau County
U Jail, where he
was responsible
for operational
Card and daily activi-

It is alleged
that over the last two years Card
used his position to obtain a gpv-.

14,000 cellular phones at prices
ranging from 99 cents to $5 per
phone.

The "Miller Freedom Scholar-

the recognition of a $50,000 per-
petual "gift" to Nassau County's

David Miller Jr. currently serves on
that board. He is also a former head

disconnect" between employers

right thing."

Waterspout cuts



power to island


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader


A powerful waterspout in the
Amelia River Tuesday morning
tore across electricity lines and
cut off power to Amelia Island for
more than two hours.
Jorge Puentes, electrical oper-
ations manager for Florida Public
Utilities, said the waterspout came
ashore on the west side of the
Shave Bridge at 8:45 a.m. and
knocked out the power to the
entire island.
"A waterspout came across
around the B A Pig Barbeque
location and crossed the line,"
said Puentes. "It was so violent
that it took off the static wire."
Puentes explained that the "static
wire" is a wire on top of power
transmission lines to protect them
from lightning strikes.
"The line made contact with
lower energy carrying conduc-
tors, creating the outage," Florida
Public Utilities stated in a press
release Tuesday.
A passing storm cell Tuesday
morning brought rain and strong
gusts that spawned the water-

It is "much more expensive" to
live in the city than in the county,
county resident Alice Krysiak of
Crosswind Drive said. Krysiak, who
is building a home in the city,
said she realized that impact fees
would increase after she submitted
her building permit Impact fees
became effective fpr all building
permits received on or after
Marci 2. ,
"They (staff) said:they thought
a building permit for a 2,700-square-
foot house would be about $6,000,
which is, I consider, very high...
That's not a tiny increase ..."
Areas other than parks- and
recreation should benefit more from
impact fees, Lamb said. "We're
doing pretty good in parks and
recreation. But more importantly,
by passing this, this is a vote for
anti-growth, which is almost a con-
tradiction in terms, because the city
is already built up pretty much,"
Lamb said.
"So it's the areas outside the city
limits that incorporate.. .where the

money and that the citizens are
being overtaxed. Increasing impact
fees is not necessary. We can live off
the money we have right now and
we don't need this."
The commission raised fees to
$2.61 per square foot for residential
development and to $0.78 for non-
residential construction. Impact

Nassau. County recognized the
Millers' donation at a luncheon cer-
emony Wednesday.
"It only costs $2,500 a year to go
toFCCJ full-time," Wallace said.
"But if you're living paycheck to
paycheck or worse, it's an impos-
sibility. The 'working poor' sit on
the sidelines, as the bridge is out of
reach." -
SWallace lauded the meeting to
est lish.the scholarship as "a pro-
totype for series of meetings of a
similar nature."
: "This- is a knowledge-based

ship applicants will be required to

"Wouldp't it.be wonderful if
down the line, we could offer 10, 12
or 15 scholarships?" David Miller
Sr. asked.: ,.. ; ...
"Dads always had a great vision

"I'ye been, fortunate to be
involvedwith the Boys & Girls Club
and to help them before they get
their permanent home here estab-
lished," said Nassau County
Superintendent of Schools John
Ruis. "We're in a situation in Nassau
County where we have so many
people who realize the importance
of education. We have a network
that can benefit children."
"I want to support any organi-
zation that's going to get kids on the
right track before they get in trou-
ble," said Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves, "If we can, as
adults, we should help kids make
the right choices in life."

spout, essentially a tornado over
water.
"FPU's two 138,000-volt main
transmission lines located west of
the Intracoastal Waterway were
affected," the FPU press release
stated. "FPU's crews were imme-
.diately dispatched to the scene
and worked with JEA to safely de-
energize the line. By 10:27 a.m.,
the crews had completed the
repair and were able to re-ener-
gize the 138,000-volt circuit and
restore electric service to cus-
tomers."
Power was back up islandwide
by about 11 a.m.
A mature waterspout is seen as
a connection between a storm
cloud and the water below it. In
the water, it kicks up small waves
and a froth of tiny bubbles of car-
bon dioxide.
Waterspouts, like tornadoes,
can be destructive to anything
that lies in their path, such as a
power line.
Wind gusts up to 35 mph were
forecast for Tuesday. A wind advi-
sory was in effect until 6 p.m.
Tuesday.

in question."
"We weren't able to reconcile
the books and when we got into it,
other irregularities began to sur-
face," Jerry Greeson, chief deputy
clerk of courts, said. "We felt the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement had to come in and
see if there were any real problems
or not."
Greeson, a former clerk of
courts from 1980 to 1996, is serving
as top aide to Crawford, who
assumed the post in January.
Crawford won election last year
over Chip Oxley, who served two
terms, from 1997 to 2004.
"This investigation is not intend-
ed to reflect on any particular indi-
vidual," Crawford's press release
said.
Greeson said the review of the
books is complicated by the fact
that a few members of the financial

staff who had worked under Oxley
have left. Several others have stayed
on.
Greeson said he could not dis-
cuss the specific areas of the
records in question until the state
investigation is completed and the
FDLE has recommended a course
of action.
Greeson explained that Oxley
had retained auditor Farmand,
Farmand and Farmand to recon-
cile the clerk's records in the cus-
tomary transition of one clerk of
courts to another. It was during that
audit that questions began to arise,
he noted.
"At this point, vie're not saying
something's amiss, we just want to
know what the irregularities are,"


Greeson said.
The FDLE met with Crawford
and his staff members last week
and were scheduled to meet again
this week.
The review will take time as
investigators work to untangle the
records, said Pape, but he would
not give any estimates.
"We feel there's at least concerns
that warrant more than a prelimi-
nary review, but we're still at the
early stages," he said.
Pape said his agency has the
capacity to tackle investigations that
have to do with financial malfea-
sance. Pape said the probe will help
the agency determine whether a
criminal investigation is warranted
or whether there have been hon-


est financial accounting mistakes.
"We'll look at all the financial
stuff and conduct interviews," Pape
said. "It will be thorough. There's
enough there that we need to get to
the bottom of it. It will take some
time. Then we'll decide if it will war-
rant h full investigation and the pos-
sibility of charging people."

H ow would you like to
start the year with $80
million in long-term
*H debt, requiring pay-
merits of nearly $8 million a year?
To complicate matters, you
have more expenses than income
on a day-to-day basis, creating an
operating shortfall. Welcome to
the world of Nassau County.
To say the county is in solid
financial condition is like saying
the chaotic A1A corridor in Yulee
is an example of sound planning.
But to ignore the operating short-
fall in the face of fairly significant
debt could force county officials
into making harsh, rash decisions
- such as raising taxes or charg-
ing higher fees for services.
-One advantage a municipality
lias over a business is that it can
raise taxes and fees if it needs
more income. Unfortunately, this
is not a popular decision with res-
idents, but is a backup measure
that can keep counties and cities
from going bankrupt.
Not that the county is any-
where near bankruptcy. With an
increasing tax base of residents
and businesses, the county's rev-

Since their purchase of the

the beach," Dorson Chi said of the
March 1 menu change. "We will do
breakfast seven days a week and a
Sunday brunch."
The couple will continue to work
we-ek.nds at the Ash Street Inn.
One of the earliest notable
changes was to open up the "bal-
cony" area inside the restaurant,.
which in the past had been dosed

that another change upstairs will
be to open the bar.
"We're hoping to roll out the

thing on the menu and we're not
going to jack up prices," Chi said.
"This is not going to be a white
tablecloth restaurant. It's a beach
hangout."
"We're probably going with a
more upscale feel, but not a fine
dining restaurant," Dorson Chi
said. "We're adding soups and pasta
and fruit in the next month. We def-
initely want to hear from people
about what they like and what they
don't like. We want to provide a
clean, well-staffed place."
The changes are likely to con-
tinue and evolve for some time, she
said.
"We're really excited. It's prob-
ably going to take a year to put
together everything we want to do,"
she said. "Ultimately the goal is to
have a California diner feel here
with booths and lots of cozy
spots to sit. The goal is to bring in
the best parts of Southern
California."
"It's not always about planning
- it's about making sure your cus-

r - -


to go around. You want people to be
happy."
'There are a lot of really great
regulars," Dorson Chi said. "It's an
interesting crowd of people, and
we would never want to take their
hangout away."
Now that the restaurant has
added breakfast to its menu, it will
be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Monday through Thursdays, 7
a.m. to midnight on Fridays and
Saturday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on
Sunday. A host or hostess also will
be added to the staff.
The couple lauded the restau-
rant's staff and expressed faith in
their ability to excel throughout
the changes.
'The staff has really been great,"
Dorson Chi said. "They have shown
us they are willing to work hard.
They do as good a job as they can
do. We're really pleased to have
them. (Manager) Chrissy Gill real-
ly mknows the business and the cus-

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Respect log truck
drivers

Re: "Log truck bullies," Feb. 25.
It disturbs me that there are
individuals who feel that log trucks
are a menace to roadways on
Nassau County. Rather than focus-
ing on one accident involving a log
truck, perhaps we should ,look at
the bigger picture poor growth
management and a lack of courte-
ous drivers.
When the newest traffic lights
were installed, they were not syn-
chronized to create a smooth flow
of traffic, nor were they set up so
that they operated on a timer vs.
"traffic trigger." For instance, your
eastbound light on A1A could be
green as grass, but the minute
someone pulled up to either cross
or turn left onto AIA, your light
turns blood red. If you are a log
truck carrying 80,000 pounds
already up to speed, you more
often than not have no choice but
to run the light if you are too close
to it. If you don't and choose
instead to lock up the brakes -
well, I think we have all seen the
consequences of that
Another point that must be
weighed is that of all other drivers
of everything but tractor trailers.
It is just as important for every
other driver to remember to think
like they were in the log truck they
are approaching. If you can't see
the truck's mirrors, then the driv-
er can't see you. Don't pull in front
of a log truck and expect them to-
yield the right-of-way. Expect that'
a log truck driver may pass under
a traffic light on yellow. If they are
up to speed, then it is safer for
them to go through than to try to
stop. You, as a defensive driver,
should always proceed with cau-
tion once the signal turns green.
The statement that log trucks
"take over the left-hand lane driv-
ing lane as if nothing is more crit-
ically important than their own
delivery schedules" particularly
angers me. Per the Fernandina
Beach Police Department: All
truck traffic must travel in the left-
hand lane so that it will be possible
for motorists to enter and leave
the fast food restaurants. This infor-
mation, as well as other foolish-
ness, has been provided to every
log truck driver by the mills so
that they will know what is best
for the traffic.
'-----Unfortunately; -the- rest of-
Nassau County has not been pro-
vided this little "checklist" so peo-
ple get mad when a slow truck is in


the left lane and blame it all on the
driver.
Also, since this latest accident
the drivers have been given yet
another "list" to follow to make
sure there aren't any more acci-
dents. Are we going to pass out
"checklists" to every licensed driv-
er in Nassau County every time
there is an accident? If you were to
do a statistical check on how many
accidents within a month involve a
log truck,,I would imagine that you
wouldn't be able to come up with
that many. Considering that there
are over 300 trucks each passing
through sometimes 3-4 times a day,
the fact that there have only been
a couple of "notable" accidents
involving log trucks speaks vol-
umes about the safety conscious-
ness of the drivers.
Any accident, not just one
involving a log truck, has the capac-
ity to bring with it disastrous con-
sequences. It seems to me that
there has been a drastic amount of
unfair blame placed on the log
truck drivers. The passage of log
trucks through this area has been
commonplace well before the nov-
elty of being an island resident was
the "in thing." They are vital part
of the economic pulse of this com-
munity, and as such, should be
treated with the respect they
deserve, not deemed "bullies."

What values?
I was appalled to see the head-
line "Republicans celebrating val-
ues" in the March 2 edition.:
If "values" mean advocating
crowded classrooms and ignoring
voter's wishes to have smaller
classes, how can they be proud?
If "values" mean advocating high-
er starting salaries for teachers
when there is no money to pay
them except by raising local taxes,
this does not sound like the
Republicans who like to brag that
they don't raise taxes. (Remember
that the governor said there is no
money for smaller classes, so how
can the lieutenant governor talk
about using the money that is
"saved" by amending the proposi-
tion.)
The article quotes State Sen.
Steve Wise as saying, "The
Republican Party is the only one in
America that believes that life is
precious.'"Iflifeis'scrpredous-why-
did the Republicans send 1,500
American soldiers to their deaths
in Iraq? And indirectly caused the


deaths of 100,000 civilians.
The article boasted that all the
county offices in Nassau are held
by Republicans. (This apparently
counts the recycled Democrats
who changed parties, but got no
smarter.) Apparently "values" now
means that Americans are better
off with a one-party system. This
sounds like some of the countries
we regularly denounce.
Your headline implied praise
for Republicans and lack of values
(and morality?) in Democrats. I
think that being a peacemaker,
feeding the hungry, educating our
children, and providing health care
for the sick are the real traditional
values.

Recycling helps landfill
Robert Weintraub was right to
call for bold action to stem the
financial.disaster looming over our
landfill ("Bold action now to stem
landfill tsunami," Feb. 16). We are
being squeezed two ways: the land-
fill will be filled long before we fin-
ish paying for it, and the tempo-
rary fix to make money by taking
in out-of-county garbage just short-
ened the life of the landfill even
further. Now we have lost even
that income, leaving our budget in
a bigger hole.
Our ugly situation has been
caused by county politicians who
chose shortsighted decisions that
made them look good at the time
but pushed the true costs onto us
now. Mr. Weintraub's solutions are
definitely worth considering, but I
would like to add one more idea
about something we should have
done a long time ago in this
county.
When will we start recycling?
Recycling will extend the life of
our landfill, will positively affect
the environment, and may even
make some money for the county
if done wisely.
The few residents who already
try to recycle have to drive all
around town, wasting gas in the
process. We have to bring our cans,
bottles, and plastics to three dif-
ferent places if we are serious
about recycling.
All the major garbage carters
are already required to recycle in
many other municipalities they
serve, so they are already set up for
the task. If the county commission

other week solely for recyclables.
If commissioners don't want to


0

do that, the next best thing would
be to have comprehensive centers
where residents could make one
stop for all recyclables.
I realize that all recyclable mate-
rials don't make a profit every
month, but markets vary, and there
is a possibility for profit. We have
at least one business in the county
that might use all our corrugated
cardboard if we made it easy for
them to pick it up in central loca-
tions.
S We are not a rural county any'
more, generating just a small
amount of garbage. The popula-
tion growth expected in the next
few years will just exacerbate the
problem. Let's act now before the
situation is so dire that it will cost
us twice as much to fix it.
Joan Cipriano, President
Nassau County
Democratic Club

Support the arts
Most people would agree that
art is essential to the positive
growth of any community. While
our city government sometimes
seems to encourage questionable
development, for anyone to be crit-
ical of the city government giving
money to the arts is atrocious
(Voice of the People, March 2).
Some may say that it is "unfair"
for the city government to give
money to one art group and not
another. I personally think we
woitld live in a miiih -re-ater ,oci-
ety if the government provided
money to every person struggling
as an artist, like Ireland for exam-


ple. In Ireland artists don't have to ernment to pay off the Baptists, in
pay taxes. But in the U.S., unfor- providing that person such assur-
tunately, the arts do not play a dom- ances.
inant role in community develop- I can see the Baptist church

and not having to talk. We both liked trains, but
Edwin pretended he didn't 'Working for the rail-
road is hard work," he said when I was a boy, "and
you can do anything except work for the railroad."
Still. when he drove alongside the lead engine
of a train, he would always say hello with one long

he would check his watch when he heard a train
whistle. He wasn't working his last years, but he
still wanted to know who was on time and who

Affordable housing is a growing problem all
across our country, and we are no differ-
ent. The average price of a home sold on
Amelia Island last year was $343,000.
There were no homes under $100,000 and 17 homes
between $100,000 to $200,000 on the market Feb. 3.
(Figures taken from the local multiple listing serv-
ice.)
Employers in the Amelia Island-Fernandina
Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce acknowledge
that this has been a problem for employers as well.
Several years ago the chamber had a special com-
mittee that included community leaders as well as
chamber members (I was on that committee), and a
survey was done that reflected that need. The com-
mittee recommended to the city commission form-
ing an ad hoc affordable housing committee to
study this issue and make recommendations to the
city.
That committee defined as "affordable housing"
for the city's purposes (using federal terminology as
well) those households making 80 percent or less
than the mean average income in the city or Nassau
County. That means someone making $35,000 to
$40,000 cannot afford a house here because they
would only qualify for a $125,000 house, using 2.5
times annual income as a guide.
That committee recommended that the city:
Encourage affordable housing developers and
builders.
Exempt affordable housing from permitting
fees, impact fees and tap-in fees.
Establish an affordable housing staff person in
community development to apply for grants and
coordinate any programs that would help as far as

for "affordable housing" to be

this purpose.
Give tax breaks to buyers
of affordable housing.
Include affordable housing
language in the land develop-
Gerry Clare ment regulations and compre-
hensive plan.
Some of these items were addressed by the com-
mission. However, due to the rising cost of land,
homes and development on the island, the problem
has gotten worse as you can see by what is available
on the market.
Those who need affordable housing are not low,
low income. These are teachers, police, firefighters,
professionals and possibly two wage earners work-
ing several minimum wage or above jobs with over-
time. So where can these young workers go?
Obviously, they can rent, although with the dis-
appearance of Summer Woods, rental apartments
have been a problem as well.
Or they can go off island. Oops the average
price of an off-island home sold last year between
the Shave Bridge and 1-95 was $241,000.
Unless you are in the market for a mobile home,
which sold for an average price of $83,000 (on the
lot), there is nothing available under $100,000 and
only two homes between $100,000 and $200,000 and
41 over $200,000 as of Feb. 3.

The average price of a home in Jacksonville is
$155,000, and Realtors are constantly told by cus-
tomers that living in Kingsland and St. Marys, Ga.,
is much cheaper. Of course, that means a lot of trav-
el to jobs in our area, and not as dependable employ-
ees.
The new low-income (Nassau Club) apartments
going up on Nassauville Road should be some relief.
And the city and county commissions will try to
address these problems to make that hated word,
development, more attractive and practical to future
developers and builders of affordable housing, espe-
cially in the light of both city and county discussing
more impact fees.
BRASH, a local non-profit corporation composed
of community lenders, builders, Realtors and inter-
ested parties, has started to address this problem
by attempting a pilot program to build 10 homes
from $100,000 to $125,000 on infill lots in the city of
Fernandina Beach.
It's a start and we're currently looking for any
"affordable" housing building ideas, cluster hous-
ing, etc., as well as qualified buyers.
We also are hoping in the future to establish a
permanent program in Nassau County, possibly
using SHIP funds for renovations for affordable
housing as well. At this point all efforts are volun-
tary and hopefully the first three homes are in the
offing. Flyers have been distributed to the city, the
mills, Amelia Island Plantation, superintendent of
schools, NCCDC and the fire department.
Gerry Clare is president of BRASH. For informa-
tion, call her at 753-2377.

V TOGETHER WE CAN


Collaborating to help needy
HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader WWI -


For 26 years, the Northeast
Florida Community Action Agency
has offered "solutions for success"
through educational and housing
programs, informational ex-
changes, collaborative sharing of
resources and advocacy.
'The self-sufficiency program
encourages families and individu-
als to obtain employment, improve
their education and enroll in
skills training," said Christine W.
Raysor.
'The home ownership program
assists first-time home buyers with
down payments up to $500,"
Raysor explained. Clients attend
financial classes to learn about
credit, credit counseling and budg-
eting.
Working individuals can save
toward a home purchase, college
tuition or starting their own busi-
ness through the individual devel-
opment account:
Tuition assistance is available to
individuals demonstrating finan-
cial need who have been accepted
into a postsecondary institution or
certifiable vocational program.
Youth In Action is a year-round
program for youths ages 10-17. An

St. Marys River group seeks


funds to contend with growth


The St. Marys River
Management Committee
approved its first-ever budget
request proposal Monday to the
St. Johns River Water
Management District.
"The budget proposal focuses
on water quality and flood pro-
tection projects benefiting both
the Florida and Georgia sides of
the river, even though the proj-
ects are concentrated on the
Florida side because the water
management district is a regula.-
tory agency of the state of
Florida," said Chip Campbell, St
Marys River Management
Committee chairman, in a press
release.
"Our-goal is to protect the
river's water quality and improve
the impaired areas, and to protect
natural systems in the river cor-
ridor," Campbell says. "We also
believe it is critical to provide flood
protection through nonstructur-
al, natural functions of the river."
Proposed projects include a
land acquisition assessment tar-


getting the protection of riverfront
- or riparian parcels with the high-
est water resource and ecological
value, and potential land acquisi-
tion opportunities. Specific fund-
ing amounts are not identified in
the proposal.
"The greatest threat to the St
Marys River today is pressure
from development," Campbell
says. "Development is taking place
throughout the watershed, espe-
cially in Macclenny and Glen St
Mary, but also in southwest
Nassau County and in Hilliard,
both of which have experienced
repeated damage from flooding."
In 2000, the total amount of
floodplain area in the Florida por-
tion of the basin was 190,400
acres. Of that, 3,000 acres were
already developed, and an addi-
tional 16,200 acres are designated
for development in future land use
plans.
Other budget requests include
technical and managerial assis-
tance to Nassau and Baker coun-
ties to evaluate stormwater data


needs and $50,000 for each coun-
ty to initiate stormwater master
planning efforts.
The committee will ask the dis-
trict to assess the need for water
quality and biological indicator
data and to develop a program to
collect such data for three years,
beginning in fiscal year 2005-6.
Minimal baseline water quality
and biological work has been con-
ducted on the St Marys River.
The St. Marys River
Management Committee was
formed in 1993 to prepare a river
management plan and advise the
four counties' boards of county
commissioners on river issues. Its
goal is to promote and protect the
long-term viability of both the envi-
ronmental and economic
resources of the St. Marys River
Basin in ways that retain local con-
trol, protect property rights and
foster cooperation among people
and government.
For more information on the
budget proposal, contact
Campbell at (912) 4964977.


St. Marys River cleanup sites told


Sites for the 2005 St. Marys

lwo weeks away, organizers say
more than 700 volunteers are
expected at the cleanup, which
will be held from 8 a.m. to noon
March 19 in Baker and Nassau
counties in Florida and Camden
and Charlton counties in Georgia.

unteers will be held from 11:30

Creek, A1A Bridge at the
Intracoastal Waterway, Lofton

Marys, Ga., Riverfront, Edwards,
1-95 Bridge, and the pogey plant.
The US 301 bridge is an addition-
al site but only accessible by four-
wheel-drive vehicles.
The celebration is a one-day
volunteer cleanup sponsored by
the St. Marys River Management
Committee, Keep Nassau
Beautiful and White Oak
Plantation.
"The St. Marys River


Celebration is a perfect opportu-
nity for neighbors and friends to
join together to help clean up and
protect the river," says Dean
Woehrle, longtime event organiz-
er. "The cleanup brings attention
to the need for preservation and
protection of the river systems
throughout the year."
Volunteers should bring rakes
and dip nets, as well as sunscreen.
sunglasses, hat, heavy gardening
gloves or dishwashing gloves.
Boats and canoes are also needed.
The St Marys River Management
Committee will provide trash
bags, dumpsters and the post-
cleanup picnic at White Oak.

3 generations of pilots


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
Most 16-year-old students
might spend their time away from
studies playing video games, talk-
ing on the phone or watching TV.
But Fernandina Beach High
School junior Jonathan Arnett has
chosen to fill almost all of his free
time with more studies. He is cram-
ming to get his first pilot's license
by his 17th birthday in June.
"Right now, I'm reading for my
private pilot's license," Arnett said;
At the same time, he is also study-
ing for FCAT testing at school.
He flew his first solo outing
from Fernandina Beach Municipal
Airport this month.
After he gets his private pilot's
license, he plans to stick with his
flight studies and get his instru-
mentation and commercial flight
certifications, and finally a flight
instruction certification.
"That way, I can get a decent
corporate job by the time I'm 19,"
he said.
His weekdays are regimented
due to his demanding goals. He
. works out in the morning, attends
school, studies for his pilot's
license and then goes to the airport
for flight instruction at 4:30. He

gets home about 7 p.m., has dinner
and then studies for school.
"I fly on Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday as much as my
instructor will go."
An interest in flying, of course,
is encouraged greatly when one
grows up near an airstrip. Jonathan
was raised on his family's "Flying
A Ranch" on Miner Road in Yulee,
and his father, Freddy Arnett Jr., a
home builder, is also a longtime
pilot for United Parcel Service.
"I would like to do what he does
for a living," Jonathan Arnett said.
"That's my long-term goal, to do
what my dad does."
Currently, when Freddy Arnett
Jr. flies a UPS run, he flies a Boeing
757. To get to that point, his son
realizes he will have to study for
several certificates and log many
hours in the air.
It's also an incentive to know
that when he wants to fly on his
own, he won't have to rent a plane.
Freddy Arnett Jr. owns a Cessna
40, a Beechcraft Bonanza and a
Cessna 140. Jonathan Arnett said
that after he gets his license, he
would like to take his friends on
outings that high school students
with mere cars just dream about.
But -in the meantime, he has
decided to give up some socializing

Yulee high bids to be opened in April


KEVIN TURNER

The Nassau County School
Board has approved final plans for
a new Yulee high school and con-
struction could begin as soon as
next month.
The 181,000-square-foot school,
composed of eight buildings, does
not yet have a name. Bid opening
for the estimated $20 million pro-
jct is April 7, and the board is to
review bids at its April 14 meet-
ing.
"Are we still mov~ig toward our
summer 2006 occupancy date?"


board member Kathy Burns asked
Kim Rinaman, president of
Jacksonville-based VRL Architects,
who assured her the project is on
track.
"We've got a very aggressive
schedule, trying to get it occupied
by September of 2006," Rinaman
said.
The prequalified general con-
tractors are Elkins Constructors,

The new high school will occu-
py the western portion of a 100-
acre site on Miner Road that also
houses Yulee Middle School, built
in 2002. There is to be a new road
to the south of Yulee Middle School
that will connect the high school's
400-space parking lot to Miner
Road.
VRL will continue to shepherd
the construction project once the
general contractor begins work,
Rinaman said.
"We carry the project all the
way through. Well be reviewing
the construction contractor's work
to make sure they're giving us the
quality in the contract documents."
The masonry, stone and con-
crete buildings will be built to last
at least 50 years, Rinaman noted.
They will have ceiling-mounted fire
sprinklers, which allowed VRL to


use larger buildings, he said.
'We've designed what we think
is a very handsome design for their
needs," Rinaman said. "It incorpo-
rates most of the materials in the
schools in Nassau County. They
have a program. a budget and a
committee to determine what's
going into the school. We're just
filling it out."
After the board selects a gen-
eral contractor, construction could
begin withinweeks, said schools'
Director of Facilities Cris
McConnell. McConnell said the
total budget is $25 million, $20 mil-
lion for construction and $5 mil-
lion for furniture, equipment, archi-
tectural fees and other costs.
In January, the board awarded
a $159,000 contract to B&E
Contracting to clear the 60-acre
parcel of land for the new school.

A choice for life

His life an example, speaker tells audience


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
In 1972 a fragile premature
baby boy, barely clinging to life,
made medical history for having
the most blood transfusions 43 -
with five of those transfusions
administered prior to birth. Even
in the womb his chances looked
grim, and the medical staff of the
Boston hospital advised an abor-
tion. Even if the baby lived, they
said, he would be severely handi-
capped.
In spite of the fact that they
had three living children (four oth-
ers had died), the parents refused
to consider ending their son's life.
That child was Tim DeTellis,
the dynamic communicator, cor-
porate consultant and musician
who was guest speaker at the
Banquet for Life, a fund-raiser held
at Springhill Baptist Church on
Feb. 25 to benefit the Greater
Nassau Women's Services.
"I'm not here by accident,"
DeTellis told the large crowd of
dinner guests. "I'm here because
my parents made a choice for life."
A choice for life is what the
Greater Nassau Women's Services
is all about. It is a crisis pregnan-
cy center, established here in 2001
to reach out with physical, emo-
tional and spiritual support to
women who find themselves in a
crisis pregnancy, offering them an
alternative to abortion as a solu-
tion.

When it's time to remember a
birthday, wedding anniversary or to
express sympathy, Amelia Island
residents have relied on Rosa
Chambliss for more than seven
years. Chambliss is the owner/
operator of Amelia's Bloomin'
Baskets.
Chambliss started with fresh
florals in Lake City 15 years ago,
graduating to silks and then to gift
baskets. "I enjoy creating things,"
said Chambliss, "I enjoy it so much
I refer to my work as playing."
But not all of her work is joyful,
says Chambliss. "Doing funerals is
sad... because that's telling a loved
one goodbye."
Very much a "people person,"
Chambliss cites "the people you
meet" as the best part of being a
florist. During the recent Super
Bowl weekend, Chambliss was
called upon to design floral arrange-
ments for some very important
clients. Discretion prompts.her noQt

car, which was off the road and "in

Child abduction figure


gets 5 years in prison


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader
A Georgia man involved in the
December abduction of a Yulee 2-
year-old was sentenced to five
years in prison for parole viola-
tions Thursday.
Denny Odell Taylor, 36, accom-
panied by girlfriend Ronda
Register, 34, both of Nahunta, Ga.,
reportedly broke into the Yulee
home of the guardian of Register's
toddler son, Michael, on Dec. 13.
The pair snatched the child and
took him to Nahunta, but were
captured soon afterward.
Taylor, who was accused of
waving a gun and pushing the
child's guardian during the inci-
dent, admitted to violating his pro-,
bation for 2001 convictions of two
counts of grand theft, burglary of


a dwelling, grand theft motor vehi-
cle and aggravated assault.
Taylor's probation was'
revoked, he was adjudicated guilty
on the charges and sentenced to
five years in the state prison sys-
tem with credit for time served. He
is to pay $4,916.78 in outstanding
costs for all his probation cases.
Taylor was faced, with new
charges as well, but their penal-
ties did not carry the weight of
the probation violations. He plead-
ed guilty to five counts of obtaining
property for a worthless check
and was not prosecuted on
charges of trespassing in a struc-,
ture or conveyance, child abuse
without great harm, possession of
a concealed firearm and two
counts of felony battery.
For those, he was sentenced
to time served in the Nassau


County Jail and was ordered to
pay $1,513.92 in restitution and
$1,850 in court costs.
The pair had reportedly
stormed into the child's custodial
home on Harts Road in Yulee the
night of Dec. 13, Taylor reported-
ly shoving the guardian when she
tried to intervene. They fled in a
blue 1995 Dodge Dakota pickup
truck and an "Amber Alert" was
issued soon afterward.
Register was ordered to serve
18 months of probation last month.
As part of her probation, she was
ordered to take a parenting class
and is to have no contact with
Taylor.
The pair was arrested by
Brantley County, Ga., deputies
early Dec. 14 at Taylor's uncle's
house in Nahunta.

been recovered, Seagraves said.
Card's activities came to light in
November when the sheriff's
office received a surprising bill
from Nextel, Seagraves said.
"When we had an outstanding
bill of $170,000, that became a
curiosity. They have never sold
14,000 phones over a two-year peri-
od to any law enforcement agency.
Fourteen thousand phones- that's
kind of shocking."
The sheriff's office employs
258, Seagraves said.
Nextel had done its own inves-
tigation of the account, he said.
"Nextel asked us if Card had
authorization to be the one pur-
chasing for the sheriffs office. He
was not in a position to do pur-
chasing for the sheriff's office.

Seagraves noted that over the
course of Card's employment at
the sheriff's office, he had been
the target of a complaint and a
minor disciplinary action.
The bulk of the purchasing was
done after April last year,
Seagraves added. The phones

COURT REPORT


KEVIN TURNER
News-Leader


A former Fernandina Beach
Police detective arrested for
attempting to have sex with a 17-
year-old girl was sentenced to six
months' probation Thursday in a
plea agreement
Gregory Sherod Rosier, 41,
faced with one count of unlawful
sexual activity with a minor and five
counts of sexual battery by a law
enforcement official, pleaded guilty
to aggravated assault, a lesser
charge included in the sexual bat-
tery charge.
Rosier's law enforcement cer-
tificate has been ordered seized.
Adjudication was withheld and the
five other charges against him were
dropped.
Rosier is to serve six months of
court-supervised probation, which
may terminate early if all conditions
are met.I
He also was ordered to pay $370
in court costs, a $500 public defend-
er's lien and perform 25 hours of
community service.
Assistant State Attornejr
Granville "Doc" Burgess said the
victims, who now live in Virginia
and North Carolina, were more
interested in Rosier's badge than a
lengthy trial. "The victims' primary
motive was to make sure he was
no longer in law enforcement,"
Burgess said. "We are required to
get the victims' thoughts and inputs
as per disposition."
The charge of sex with a minor
applied to the 17-year-old. The bat-
tery charges. involving sex with her
23-year-old sister, would have
amounted to "his word against
theirs" if aggressively prosecuted


because of
sketchy physical
evidence fromin the
Bnight in question,
July 4, 2003, said
SBurgess.
He noted that
the victims had
met Rosier at The
Rosier Surf restaurant,
where he was off
duty working as a
bouncer, and later saw him again
after a fireworks show in downtown
Fernandina Beach.
Burgess said the pair invited
Rosier to their hotel room for "a lit-
tle fun." According to the police
reports, Rosier joined them and had
sex with the 23-year-old. Reportedly
intoxicated, she then left the hotel
room. Police reports indicate she
placed a call to 911 at 2:30 a.m.,
alleging her younger sister was
being raped.
When police arrived, Rosier and
the teen were preparing to engage
in sex, Burgess said. As police
banged on the door, Rosier jumped
into the bathroom while the par-
tially clothed teen opened the door.
Burgess noted that to prove sex-
ual battery by a law enforcement
official, they would have had to
prove that Rosier's sex with the 23-
year-old occurred because he mis-
used his authority as a police officer.
Rosier joined the Fernandina
Beach Police Department on July 1,
1988, and was promoted to
detective in 2001 after spending sev-
eral years as the school resource
officer at Fernandina Beach High
School.
Rosier resignedfrom the depart-
ment shortly after his arrest.

SEC learns

thatman

landed

on moon

P he Southeastern
Conference has
decided to follow in
the path of the Big
10 and ACC conferences by.
implementing an experimen-
tal instant replay system for
league football games next
season.
There's a novel idea.
Hey, SEC, have you heard
about the new invention,
called the microwave? ...
Speaking of instant replay,
University of Florida and
Florida State officials are con-
templating using the system
for their annual grudge
match. I'm not sure how well
itwill work considering that
ACC officials sill claim they
missed only one call the last
time the Seminoles and "
Gators played in The Swamp.
And they have had nearly
two years to replay that
atrocity...
Former Florida football
coach Ron Zook had this to
say when asked by a Florida
Today reporter why fans did-
n't embrace him: "I don't
know why that was. But let
me tell you, it wasn't always a
day at the beach for Coach
Spurrier either. There's a rea-
son why maybe Florida has
won only one national cham-
pionship. Ift's a great place, a
great academic school. It has
it all. So why has it only won
one national championship?"
I can't quite grasp it either,
Ron. But the last few years of
misery are undoubtedly die
direct result of poor coaching
by a guy whose name rhymes
with book and starts with a
"Z." Can you figure that one
out, Ron?:
And people wonder why I
constantly ripped the guy...
FSU fans worried that
Wyatt Sexton will be their
quarterback next season
should relax. Remember,
you've got a kid named
Xavier Lee with a sparkling
resume and a redshirt year
under his belt. Now whether
or not head coach Bobby
Bbowden remembers that Lee
is on his team is up for
debate...
Word has it that South
Carolina head coach Steve
Spurrier might have to start
recruiting the Gamecock
marching band if he contin-
ues to kick players off the
team at his current rate. Then
again, it wouldn't matter if the
lead trombone player were
the quarterback. Spurrier
would still have him slinging
the ball 60 times a game...
Every time I hear some-
one say how strong the
Atlanta Braves should be
before the start of a season, I
just want to plug my ears with
my fingers and say "La LA La
La La" until they shut up.
Sure, I'll watch every game I
can but I'll watch with the
same low expectations I've
had for 13 of the last 14
years...
As thrilling as it was to
watch the Florida basketball
team knock off Kentucky
Sunday, I can't help but have
a feeling of doom about next
week's NCAA Tournament. I
guess first-round losses to
Creighton and Manhattan the
last two years can have an
effect on one's psyche. Gator
fans can only hope their
team's psyche remains intact,
at least through the'first
round...
Here's a little mathematics
trivia to help Braves' fans get
to know their new starting
pitcher, former Oakland
Athletic Tim Hudson. Some
moron actually bought
Hudson's beard shavings for
$75 at a 2002 sports auction,
while another imbecile paid
$50 for the dirt that came off
the pitcher's cleats. And get
this, some idiot just paid him
$47 million to play baseball.
Oh wait, that was Braves
General Manager John
Schuerholz. My bad.
John L. Crawford's column
appears Wednesdays.

"Tallahassee Select was the best
defensive team we've played this
year," Maniacs Coach Joe Cockrell
said. "They gave us very few free
points and made us work for every-
thing. The championship match
was high quality. We had 10 assists

serving brought us back from 11-
4 to 11-9, but we just couldn't fin-

Cockrell cited improved play
from his setters Caroline Garner,
Brittany Cumberland and Carter
as a big reason for the team's
aggressive play.
"Cori Kennett and Emmalee
Bales had a number of big swings
at the net," Cockrell said.
"Newcomer Leah Bales' net play
has been a welcome addition.
Cameron Springer and Lizzie
Cumberland passed, the ball well -
for us all day.
"We did miss our three soccer
players who had to leave after the
first match for their first soccer

Long Point ladies hold member-member event


The women of Long Point
played a Match Play
Championship (best ball of two)
over the course of three days
with various weather conditions
last week. The field was divided
into six flights with six teafns in
each flight. Wednesday and
Thursday called for two nine-
hole matches and on Friday the
final nine-hole match was played.
The winning team of each
flight was pitted against each
other in a four-hole, alternate
shot, shootout after lunch.
Handicaps were in play and
many club members and fellow
competitors were on hand to
watch the drama unfold as they
followed the ladies up the long,
par-5 first hole.
Each hole had to be taken to a
chip-off or putt-off to eliminate
the determined ladies. The final
hole had to be played twice
before Barbara Patton and Janet
Petersen could defeat Kris
Stenson and Gerry Okin in a
chip-off.
Barbara and Janet received
beautiful engraved crystal vases
and shared in the winners' pool.
Winners of the other flights
were Illene Kaufman and Marti
Cain, Cherie Billings and Joan
Donaldson, Gail Biondi and Anne
Thibault, and Tish Moyer and
Dee Sullivan.
The nine-holers played a two-
day match and the winners were
Ann Keating and Yvonne
Parchman.

Big moon bassin' in Northeast Florida


T he big bend in Greg
Deimund's bass rod
wasn't the result of a
hooked bass, but came
from the large lipped crank bait
that he had just tied onto his fish-
ing line. It was real work crank-
ing the shad-shaped and colored
crank bait that had what may
have been the largest plastic lip
in the bass fishing world glued to
its mouth.
The bass plug was fittingly
named a 'Texas Hot lip Special."
On about the third cast with
"Hot Lips," Deimund set the
hook into a hefty size large-
mouth bass that actually came
right up to the side of the boat
and rolled over in anticipation of
the waiting landing net Literally
seconds after Deimund had
hooked the huge bass, he had it
laying in the bottom of the boat.
"Nice bass," Deimund's wife,
Betsy, said. "I have never seen
such a fat bass. Is it pregnant?"
"You bet," Deimund said.
"This female bass was hiding in
that deep hole, just waiting for
the right time of spring to lay her
eggs in the nearby shallows.
"This is definitely the largest
bass that I have ever caught and
I am proud to let her go so she
can carry on her spawning
cycle."
Deimund's bass weighed just
over seven pounds and, like most
modern day bass fishermen, he
quickly released his catch back
into the same waters that she
came from. During the rest of
the day, the action slowed down
while fishing with the "Hot ips
Texas Special" pluig, but became
even hotter when Deimund ,
switched to a Bandit "Flat Max"
crank bait.
There are a multitude of small
ponds, lakes and rivers through-,
out Northeast Florida that har-
bor trophy largemouth bass fish-
ing and the season will peak
during the coming weeks. A full
moon this month will come on
March 25, when the majority of
Northeast Florida largemouth
bass will be laying their eggs in
the shallows.
One of the most successful
patterns for taking pre-spawn
bass is to fsh deep-water
slough- that border shallow flats
where bass traditionally spawn.
"I just love to bass fish during
the spring spawning season,"
bass guide Richard Sheets said.


"I particular-
ly enjoy fish-
lakes where
I have
caught large-
mouth bass
weighing up
to 12
pounds. My
Terry Lacoss favorite lure
._,, is a seven-
inch plastic
worm in the
Tequila
Sunrise color pattern. I also like
pumpkin seed- and crawdad-col-
ored plastic worms too.
"Just before and right on the
full moon, Joanne and I love to
go out on a small lake and fish
with Buzz Baits. When a big fish
hits, you often get towed around
the lake in your small boat for a
few minutes. That's when we
turn on the flashlight and try to
identify our catch."
Sheets once guided the Sam
Godwin fishing party on a small
lake during a past bass spawning
season.
"The lake was actually a small
pond of about five acres," Sheets
said. "We were catching a bunch,
of schooling size bass while cast-
ing spinner baits and decided to
slow troll live shiners for a big
pre-spawn bass. The result was a
giant of a bass that weighed well
over 12 pounds."
Jim Allen also guides for pre-
spawn largemouth bass in the
Ocala area and has been doing
well with bass weighing up to 11
pounds in recent days.
"The bass are just before
.going on the beds," Allen said.
"Some of the smaller Ocala
Forest lakes have bedding bass
in them right now, but it looks
like Rodman bass will go on the
beds during this month's full
moon."
There are thousands of small
lakes and ponds throughout
Northeast Florida that offer
excellent trophy bass fishing dur-
ing pre-spawn. Make sure you
obtain permission before fishing
on a private body of water and
pick up your trash before leav-
ing.
It is also very important to_
priacice catch-and-releaset during
the spawning season so that
future generations of bass fisher-
men will have the opportunity to
enjoy trophy bass fishing too.

Hunt permits
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission will begin accept-
ing applications for quota hunt
permits and special-opportuni-
ty hunt permits for next year's
hunting seasons through its
Total Licensing System this
summer. This means hunters
will submit their applications at
any one of the more than 600
license agents who sell hunt-
ing and fishing licenses, all
county tax collectors' offices or
from FWC's website,
MyFWC.com.
For the first time since
1975, hunters will not mail
application forms to
Tallahassee to apply for the
quota hunt permits.
Hunters seeking special-
opportunity hunt permits will
be the first to use this new
application process. Between
May 1 and June 15, hunters
will be able to submit as many
$5 special-opportunity applica-
tions as they would like
through license agents, county
tax collectors' offices or on-line
at MyFVC com. Application
forms will be available at all
FWC regional offices begin-
ning April 20.
Hunters seeking quota hunt
permits can apply from June 1-
11 at license vendors, county
tax collectors' offices or on-line
at MyFWC.com. Application
forms will be available at all tax
collectors' offices and FWC
regional offices beginning May
15. These forms are still neces-
sary to provide license agents
with hunt choices, dates and
personal information.
Remaining un-issued quota
permits will be made available
directly from license agents,
county tax collectors' offices
and online at MyFWC.com on
a first-come, first-served basis
once the random drawing has
been completed.
The first change in the sys-
tem hunters will notice is that
stickers, tabs and photocopies
of licenses are no longer
required with the application.
The TLS will verify that
hunters have valid wildlife
management area permits
when they apply. If they do not
have the proper license or per-
mit, they may obtain one
where they apply.
Another major change will
be a closed period between the
first and second phases of the
program, from June 12
through July 31, during which
no applications will be accept-
ed. The TLS is expected to
drastically reduce the time
hunters have to wait for results
of the random drawings.

Volunteer has made a big impact in many Little ways


"Little" packages. Ask
anyone at our island his-
tory museum.
Susan Little has been recog-
nized by the museum Board of
Trustees, colleagues and friends
for her dedicated efforts on
behalf of the museum. In the
museum's annual membership
meeting Little passed the gavel to
Susan Siegmund, who will now
serve as president.
For more than 10 years, Little
has served in nearly every capaci-
ty at the museum; most recently
as president of the Board of
Trustees. A brilliant motivator
and strategist, her first love
remains teaching. Many of the
museum's current docents and
tour guides are thankful for her
teaching skills and that she
always got the classes out on
time. With Little that is a point of
pride.
Little has helped with the
Elderhostel program since its
inception and has remained a
popular lecturer. As a diplomat
representing the museum, she
has helped find, defend and

dent of the Board of Trustees,

History.

secure valuable grant money. She
leaves a museum that has transi-
tioned from a grassroots commu-
nity museum into a state-of-the-
art regional resource. It is
impossible to list all the things
Little's leadership has made pos-


sible.
Little
characteris-
tically
pooh-poohs
any credit
for her
accom-
plishments.

mitment byS
FROMTHE the muse-um is awaiting news
PORCH um's board
and the
amazing corps of volunteers who
have responded to every call forw
help and support.
The job is not done. She
reminds us there is still much to
do.
The museum is awaiting news
from the Florida Legislature on
approval of a $300,000 grant
request which will renovate win-
dows, provide handicap access to
the second floor (elevator), pro-
vide handicap accessible rest-
rooms and fund new exhibits.


Things continue to happen. The
library which has been remod-
eled by a crew of volunteers, will
be rededicated this week.
Little's passion for teaching is
matched by her passion for his-
toric preservation. On a local
level she has been active in the
preservation of both the Trinity
United Methodist Church and
the Nassau County historic court-
house. At the state level she
serves on the board of the
Florida Trust for Historic Preser-
vation as well as other regional
organizations.
So how do you honor such an
impressive volunteer?
Carmen Godwin, director of
the museum, has worked closely
with Little for the last three years.
"She is the most organized per-
son I have ever known. She
always puts education first that
is her heart, so the board wanted
to thank her in a way that would
recognize the museum and its
educational mission."
All fourth graders in Nassau
County study Florida history.
One of Little's projects has been a
focus on programs for this group.


The museum raises the money to
fund the admission and busing
for all Nassau County fourth
graders each year. Now the
youngsters will take something
home with them.
In fact, they will be taking
home "A Little Piece of History"
in the form of a colorful postcard
highlighting an important his-
toric moment in Amelia Island's
history. The play on Little's last
name was irresistible. The post-
cards will be sold in the museum
gift shop with proceeds helping
to fund the fourth grade pro-
gram.
Mrs. Little, as she announces
herself to her friends, has many
memories of her tenure at the
museum and looks forward to
continued involvement working
on special projects as the muse-
um continues to grow.
How has the museum enjoyed
such success? In lots of "Little"
ways.

It was a very hot day last
summer when the humane
society received into the
shelter a stray mama dog
with her three puppies.
Mom was so thin and had
no hair from being malnour-
ished. All her strength went
into feeding her babies and
trying to keep them alive.
She also has a club foot but
that doesn't slow her down.
The staff named her "Baldy
Mama" and her three
babies, Faith, Hope and
Charity. Well, Faith was
.adopted first, then Charity
and finally Hope. Now it is
Baldy Mama's turn to find a
new home. She has her hair
back now and has taken up
residence in the front office
at the shelter. Come and
meet this sweet hofind dog
and you will not forget those
loving eyes.
When the humane society
moved into the new shelter,
the first cat resident was
"Maria." She was a stray
that someone found in Old
Town. The staff sure was
surprised when the next day
her three babies arrived and
had a very happy reunion.
Well, those babies are now
in loving homes and this lov-
ing mom deserves a second


chance at one too. If you
have room for one very
sweet cat please stop by and
meet Maria.
If you are interested in
adopting either of these
pets, please stop by or call
the shelter at 321-1NHS. It
is open Monday to Friday
from 11:30 a.m. till 5 p.m.;
Saturday from 11 a.m.-4
p.m. and Sunday from 1-3
p.m.
A "Just for Fun Dog
Show" to benefit the humane
society is being held at

Donations also are needed
for a yard sale March 19
