No injuries in




school bus crash


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Authorities said it was "unbelievable" no
one was injured in a three-vehicle pileup
Friday on Nassauville Road as a school bus
dropped off children from Yulee Primary
School.
"I was surprised I lived through it," said
James Johns, 26, whose 1999 Oldsmobile
Alero was wedged under the bus after being
hit from behind by a 2005 Jeep Liberty.
There were 38 children on the bus and
none was injured, said David Buchanan, the
school district's director of transportation.
"It's unbelievable, considering," he said.
"Buses are pretty tough. They're the safest
things on the road."


"I wasn't even wearing my seatbelt," said
Johns, of Fernandina Beach, who was
returning home from a trip to Wendy's when
the accident occurred about 3:10 p.m. near
the intersection of Big Oak Avenue and
Nassauville Road.
He said he had just stopped behind the
school bus, which was in the process of
stopping to drop off children, when some-
thing caught his eye.
"About 10 seconds after I stopped, I
noticed something in my rearview mirror
and she'was bearing down on me at about 40
miles per hour," Johns said of the Jeep
Liberty.
Buchanan said a tape aboard the bus

A child left behind?


Parent blames system


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
By- all accounts, Marianna
McIntyre's son Connor was doing
well in his second grade ESE class
at Atlantic Elementary School -
until his teacher was absent more
than 100 days with a work-related
injury, her aide fell ill and a steady
succession of substitutes took over.
The school year ended and
Connor, who is autistic, was pro-
moted to third grade but contin-
ued to be taught the second grade
curriculum to catch up on work
missed due to the upheaval the pre-
vious year.
When she requested that he
advance to the third grade cur-
riculum, McIntyre said her pleas


fell on deaf ears. Phone calls to dif-
ferent school personnel went unan-
swered for days, and sometimes
were never returned at all, she
says. She met with Principal Laurie
Kepner, but their request for an
"individual education plan" meeting
with district staff was put off for 7
weeks.
The breaking point came in
January, when McIntyre said she
learned that her son, who has a
normal IQ and spends time in
mainstream classrooms, would be
required to take the FCAT. It was
just 31 days away, yet his ESE class
hadn't even broached the Sunshine
State Standards, let alone FCAT
instruction, she said.

The city of Fernandina Beach
has received a grant from the fed-
eral government for improve-
ments to its marina. But it's
unclear how or if the money will
be used.
The U.S. Fish and 1 \ildlife
Service lihasawarded the city $1,6
million for marina improvements
that would specifically benefit
transient vessels. Funds are
authorized under the federal
Boating Infrastructure Grant
Program, or BigP, and can be
used solely to make improve-
ments for visiting boaters.
State Rep. Aaron Bean
announced the award Friday. "I
.want to congratulate the city of
Fernandina Beach on this out-
standing project to improve the
transient vessel facilities at the
city marina," Bean said. 'This will
greatly augment the ability of the
city to serve the needs of our mar-
itime industry, as well as those
who use the marina and harbor
for recreation."
But because the marina rede-
velopment plan has gone through
"several iterations" since the BigP
funds were first sought three
years ago, some portion of the
newly awarded grant funds may
have to be returned, City

The U.S. House of Represen-
tatives has approved $4 million
in funding to help pay for the pro-
posed widening of A1A in east
Nassau County, which might
speed up the project.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) has ten-
tatively scheduled construction
for 2010-12 for the widening of
A1A to six lanes from the Shave
Bridge to 1-95.
"However, if we had federal
funds, it would appear that this
(schedule) could be advanced if
the state matched the funding,"
Nassau County Commission
Chair Ansley Acree wrote mem-
bers of U.S. Congress in a Feb. 1
letter urging support for the fed-
eral funding.
Congressman Ander
Crenshaw announced Thursday
that $16 million in federal ear-
marks for several transportation


l Manager Bob
., Mearns said.
"'Right now

point where we
may use only a
part of that
grant," he said.
Mearns But how much
ol die funds the
city can use for
the current marina redevelop-
ment design will be "for the com-
mission to decide."
The grant funds would apply
to improvements that benefit ves-
sels longer than 26 feet that stay
at the marina no more than 10
days, Marina Director Coleman
Langshaw said.
"Transient traffic is the prime
opportunity for the marina,"
Langshaw said, adding that the
grant will help maximize revenue.
"It would be right in line with how
we have been operating for a long
time."
But the proposed marina
improvement project may not
entirely fit the criteria outlined in
the original grant application, he
said.
"We have since modified that
(original plan)," Langshaw said.

cation" based on the need for

projects in North Florida had
been included in H.R. 3, the
Transportation Equity Act, which
passed the U.S. House of
Representatives by a vote of 417
to 9. Senate consideration of the
bill is expected within the next
few weeks.
'These projects are all
designed to improve mobility
within our region and through-
out our nation," said Crenshaw
in a press release. "This is a very
positive step for the .Fourth
Congressional District of Florida
and highlights the quality of our
projects."
FDOT has scheduled prepa-
ration, design and engineering
work for the A1A widening for
2005-08.
FDOT has agreed to acceler-
ate right-of-way acquisition so the
project could be completed more
quickly following planning and
design phases. I,
The project is estimated to
cost $15-20 million.

Guard pets against outdoor hazards


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

The weather is getting
warmer, and all over Nassau
County neighbors are out in their
yards greeting each other and
discussing how their lawns have
wintered, what new plants to set
out now, and outdoor mainte-
nance and repairs.
Meanwhile, Rover and Fluffy
are out, too, and will be getting
themselves into trouble if we
don't "pet-proof' their outdoor
domain.
It's a good idea to do some
checking now to make sure there
are no plants, chemicals or other
hazards that can turn a beautiful
spring day into a disastrous one


for your pet
and you.
because he's
S your best
> friend.
SI .nsecti-
: ides, fertil-
izers, and.
other yard applications can be
hazardous to animals as well as
birds. Take the time to read the
warnings and cautionary meas"- -
ures to take when using these ,
products. You may be instructed-
to keep your pets inside for a cer-
tain length of time during and
after application.
Alternate areas of your yard,
treating one at a time, so that
your pet will always have a safe
place for his necessary "visits."


Remember to remove pet
dishes, blankets and toys from
the area you are treating.
Most pets are extremely
curious, and will .investigate all
that you are doing. So be sure to
Keep the products out of reach at
all times, including storage. Pets
can be endangered through skin
contact as well as ingestion of
yard products.
P. uppies and kittens, as well
as human babies and toddlers,
us 'taste as one way of exploring
their world. So choose plants that
are non-toxic through consump-
tion and alsb avoid those that are
known to cause a reaction
through direct contact. In our
area, oleanders, azaleas and calla
lilies are all very toxic, and


should not be planted in areas
where young pets and small chil-
dren play. Since there are so
many that are toxic, do inquire
before buying new plants. There
are also a great many beautiful
plants that thrive here and are
perfectly safe.
Keep pets indoors or in
another safe place when you are
using any type of lawn equip-
ment, including pressure
sprayers, lawn mowers, weed
eaters and others, which can all
inflict serious injury. While some
pets are terrified of the noise, oth-
ers like nothing better than to
play "attack" with the mechanical
monster taldng you complete-
ly by surprise.

Andrew Holesko, program man-

included new transient dock sys-

dry building, a handicapped-
accessible walkway with timber
decking, dredging and a marina

building.
"The city is going to attempt to
apply all those components to the
proposed marina improvement
plan," Holesko said.

altered the marina design several
times over the past two years. The

County spinning on


fiscal merry-go-round


To say this would add
insult to injury is prob-
ably too kind and diplo-
matic.
During a volatile period when
Nassau County has exceeded its
ballooning budget for three years
in a row while racking up $80
million of long-term debt, there
is now a hint of malfeasance.
Undisciplined spending and
whimsical planning have beset
the county for years, creating
somewhat of a panicky state. It
may now turn out that nobody
has been truly watching the
financial farm.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement has been sum-
moned to investigate what is
believed to be wrongdoing. This
is not a simple miscalculation of
numbers that turned up in a tran-
sitional audit from one adminis-
tration to another.
There is usually more to it
when you call in state investiga-
tors. FDLE officials were tactful
and cautious in their comments,
saying there is enough evidence
to proceed. However, it will take
time before anything is proven.
The new slate of county offi-
cials has grappled with the budg-
et in recent months, trying des-
perately to get a handle on it. But
it is difficult when county depart-
ments have spent freely for so

PLACE


long cloud-
ing the finan-
cial picture to
such a
degree that
credit-rating
agencies
have
responded
with pointed
criticism.
County
officials
would not say
specifically
what they
found in the
past few
months that


prompted them to call in FDLE
investigators. However, they said
something did not add up as the
new clerk of circuit court's
administration took over the
reigns.
New clerk John Crawford was
elected last year to replace Chip
Oxley, who had served for two
terms.
It is typical that audits are
done when the reins are passed
in the transition from one clerk
to another.
In most counties, the clerk is
sort of a financial gatekeeper,
ensuring that funds are spent
properly as prescribed in the
budget.


A county administrator may
handle the day-to-day financial
operations, but the clerk is
responsible for overseeing and
reconciling the way money is
spent. The clerk is the chief
financial officer, in business
terms, while county commission-
ers are the board of directors.
Crawford said in a statement
that no one is being singled out
in the investigation. He said
there were some inconsistencies
in financial audits of the county
departments.
Well, there is one saving
grace. At least the new clerk and
his administration have a nice
.place to work, thanks to prior
administrations that approved
and constructed the grand $32
million courthouse/judicial
annex.
Ironically, it is this type of
excessive and unguided spend-
ing that helped create the mess
in the first place. The high level
of $80 million in long-term debt
only complicates the short-term
problems the county faces.
Can somebody please stop
this merry-go-round of financial
woes before we the residents
and taxpayers get sick to our
stomachs?

adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

Outlet brings world home


.. -L--I--
W ELL I.AVELE[. LIVING


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Tucked away in a warehouse
on Eighth Street, Ed Hall, Hamp
Tanner and about 15 employees
have been quietly conducting their
home decor import business since
1998.
In fact, only an 8 by 10 inch
paper sign on a screen door
announces Well Traveled Living's
business office.
But that all changed recently,
when a prominent new sign popped
up announcing the Well Traveled
Living Discount Outlet.
The store is across a driveway
from the warehouse at 716 S.
Eighth St. and used to house a cab-
inetry business.
For Tanner, president, and Hall,
CEO, it was a longtime business
plan finally coming to fruition.
"For a couple of years we were
looking for the ideal space," said
Hall. 'We didn't want a store four
miles from here. When the cabi-
net shop went out of business, it
was an.opportunity."
True to the store's name, said
Tanner, "Our goal, our mission, is
to have a true outlet."
While they import for such big-
name retailers as Home Depot,
True Value and Albertsons, among
others, and have a warehouse oper-
ation in California, "it's not like
we're cutting off our customers by
going wholesale to the public," said
Tanner.
'We exist to be a wholesaler and

our store exists to be an outlet for
our goods," said Hall, adding
there are no plans to launch a retail
chain.
"It's a way for us to move some
inventory, our best sellers, and a
way to move our end-of-the-run sell-
ers," discontinued items or one-off
samples, said Tanner. "We are
going to be a fun outlet with ever-
changing inventory always at
wholesale or less."
With the new building, they also
plan to develop a pottery show-
room for their retail chain buyers.
It's more cost-effective than lug-
ging heavy, bulky and breakable
items all over the country to
prospective customers, said Hall.
"It's better for us to fly them
here and put them up in a resort
island" and let them walk through
a showroom, he said.
As it is the business partners
already do a lot of traveling for their
wholesale operation, including to
Mexico, China, Vietnam, Malaysia,
India, Turkey and Thailand.
They've been almost mobbed
in China, where their height made
locals in a small northern town
wonder if they were basketball


stars, and Tanner followed in
ancient footsteps in Turkey.
"I was right there in the heart of
where the Apostle Paul did his early
ministry," he said.
Which is to say that at Well
Traveled, there is no middleman.
Since 1998 Hall and Tanner who
met when they were lawyers in
Atlanta and, sick of the rat race,
hatched their business plan have
cultivated primary sources for
everything from birdbaths to
chimineas to pottery. Neal Smith,
vice president of sales, also helps
design and develop new products
for their indoor kitchen and gour-
met line.
"He follows trends and looks at
what's popular in high-end cata-
logues," said Tanner.
Including a 30,000-square-foot
warehouse at the old pogy plant
off 14th Street, business has grown
steadily, said Tanner. While they
won't disclose dollar figures, sales
are "in the millions," said' Hall.
Now they are concentrating on
creating a stronger foundation for
the business by investing in their,
staff.
Last August, they hired a new

sales manager, who moved from
California just in time for a record
hurricane season. And nine months
ago they recruited their first finan-
cial controller, Nannan in of China,
who holds an international busi-
ness degree from Beijing Business
School and an M.BA in finance
from the University of Minnesota.
They have sponsored her to work
in the U.S. on a visa for highly spe-
cialized employees.
"She's a true find for us, as are
most of our employees," said
Tanner, who continues to work at
the same Army surplus desk he
picked up at the New to You store
when Well Traveled first opened.
He figures he'll have that desk for
a long time to come.
"Our philosophy is, 'Don't spend
money on things you don't need,'"
he explained.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16,2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Keep beaches open
After drafting the Open Beaches
Act and lobbying the Duval dele-
gation since 2003, the first version
of the Open Beaches Act has been
filed in the Florida Legislature as
House Bill 1463 and Senate Bill
2282. The bill titled "Public
Right/Beach Access and Use"
would protect lateral access to the
state's beaches from closure,
obstruction or privatization.
Florida legislator Aaron Bean
(Baker, Nassau, Union and parts
of Bradford, Clay, Duval counties)
is an avid supporter of access to
Florida's beaches and agreed to
sponsor the bill.
Of the nation's three largest
coastal states, Florida is the only
state that does not have a specific
set of laws to protect public beach
access. The Surfrider Foundation
and the Florida Open Beaches
Foundation initially brought the
Open Beaches act to the Duval del-
egation in 2003. The act has gone
through significant refinements
since that time.
*" It'is important to note that
Florida has only one beach access
point for every 5 miles of coast.
That equates to about 10,000 people
per access and does not include
the approximately 50 million
tourists that visit the state each
year (source: Surfrider Foundation
tfate 6f the Beach Report 2003).
The issue is of growing con-
cern as public right-of-ways leading
to, and adjacent to, Florida's beach-
es have been increasingly closed
during the past half-century. In
Northeast Florida, a local county
government vacated a 1.7-mile strip
of public right-of'way directly adja-
cent (,o 14 publicly-owned beach
access points. The value of the


property was estimated to be more
than $6 million.
Preservation of access to our
public beaches is a valuable legacy
we need to leave to the next gen-
eration. The Open Beaches Foun-
dation commends Rep. Aaron Bean
for his dedication and courage in
sponsoring this legislation.
Scott Shine, President
Florida Open Beaches
Foundation

Condo brick road
Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz
skipped down the yellow brick road
that led her into a scary forest full
of lions, tigers and bears. Often,
many people who buy condomini-
um units as home or investment
encounter association board mem-
bers that use their given power to
intimidate rather than serve the
owners who elected them. An
owner's happy skip can quickly
turn to frustration and fear.
There has been a rumor going
around the county that condo-
minium association boards can
silence the voice of owners within
designated board meetings by set-
ting up a town-hall-style meeting. It
has been reasoned by boards that
owners can bring concerns up in a
town-hall-style meeting, thereby
eliminating a great deal of "inter-
ference" in board meetings by
owners. However, this effectively
regulates owners and their voice
off to the side, stepping all over
owners' rights.
Owners have rights. Recently,
the state Division of Business and
Professional Regulation ruled in a
letter sent to a local condominium
association that they must allow
owners to speak within,,as well as
record, board meetings on all des-

While boards do encounter
unreasonable owners and their
demands, the authority factor lies
with the board. Board members
should know and follow state-man-

ethical, clearly communicate and

What great place
This writer experiences great-
ness on this island every day. One
week before Christmas, a dear
friend drove me to Jacksonville to
do some shopping. The hustle and
bustle of the season, standing in
lines to present the discount
coupons, as well as standing in lines
to get complimentary gift wrap,
was fun but tiring. Arriving home,
I could not get in my condo because
of workers' debris. I drove to the
office to ask for help from the man-
agement but the office was locked.
Tired and needing to get inside
my condo I stepped "off' instead
of "down" and, you guessed it, I
had a bad fall! I was dazed but a 10-
year-old child named Kevin Smith
was holding my hand when I came
to. I asked him not to turn loose of
my hand, which he did not. He
knew where the office girl lived,
and he offered to go for her. I told
him to please ask that attention be

Fighting for


sunshine
What kind of America do you want to live in:
One where you have ready access to informa-
tion about what your government is doing, or one
where the politicians and their powerful allies slam
that door in your face and
Editor's note: work in secret?
This editorial The fight for open gov-
appeared Sunday ernment at all levels is an
in Florida Today. eternal one inour democ-
racy, and each of us must
be vigilant to make certain
that our business and yes, it's our business is
conducted in the flood-lit glare of public scrutiny.
But that openness is under assault in Florida
and Washington, where Tallahassee lawmakers are
often more interested with protecting the interests
Sof their cronies, and the Bush administration is on
a blitzkrieg to keep you in the dark.
The landscape is dangerous, which is why we
want to talk about it today on this fourth annual
"Sunshine, Sunday," which is sponsored by the
Flhrida ,,-ci .,f New- p:per Editors to focus
attentrio'onn te rising threats to open governmenLt
And why we urge you 16'joim us to stop itfrpm
happening.
Let's take a look at Florida, which has a commit-
ment to open records enshrined in the state
Constitution and where our Sunshine Laws are
among the most progressive in the nation.
Every year the Legislature which returned to
work a few days ago considers exemptions to
open records, so many that more than 300 such
attempts have been killed the past three years
alone. At least 50 new exemptions already have
been filed this session, while a major new threat is
looming on the horizon:
A committee appointed by the Florida Supreme
Court wants to heavily restrict or shut down court
records you can see on the Internet, denying
access to a wealth of information that belongs to
you and should be at your fingertips.
Granted, some items should be shielded to pro-
tect privacy, such as certain family court cases, but
those should be handled on a case-by-case basis,
not removed wholesale.
One big myth and ifs one government offi-
cials love to pitch is such fights are nothing more
than the press sticking its nose where it doesn't
belong, and where the public doesn't want it to go.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Most public document requests are made by
businesses and average citizens. Yet nearly 40 per-
cent of such requests were illegally denied last year
at Florida courthouses, according to a survey done
last year.
What can you find out through open public
record-? Here are just a few examples:
Whether your children's teachers have been
convicted of molestation.
Whether school-bus drivers have numerous
traffic tickets.
Whether the homebuilder you're considering
has ever been sued.
What went into a zoning change, a city council
decision, a local road contract
What inspections show about the conditions
of nursing homes % here you may need to put a
loved one.
This is the everyday stuff of life, but every day,
attempts are made to deny access to a wide range
of records in Florida's cities, counties and state
offices. ,
Meanwhile, in our nation's capital, it's open sea-
son on open government.
Since Sept. 11, the Bush administration has
used the cover of "fighting terrorism" to block
attempts to find out what it's doing in all branches
of the federal government, says Paul McMasters of
the First Amendment Center in Arlington, Va.
A major battleground on that front is the
Freedom of Information Act, which anyone can use
to request documents and information.
But former Attorney General John Ashcroft
bolted and locked that door and threw away the
key, turning the act's "presumption of openness on
its head" so that "even the most routine informa-
tion is very difficult to extract these days,"
McMaster says.
The result is the strangling "of information that
sustains and enlivens a democracy. It puts in jeop-
ardy the kind of public discourse in which all
Americans, leaders and citizens alike, are free to
voice and examine all perspectives," he says.
That is what's at stake in the fight for open
records the very oxygen that gives life to our gov-
ernment and way of life.
Thaft's worth thinking hard about this Sunshine
Sunday. And it's worth fighting even harder for
each day.


Booksellers across the country report that
many of their most loyal customers are
mystery enthusiasts. Well, tell that devoted
readership to get on a plane, boat, or in a
car and get to Nassau County as quickly as they can
-we have some great conundrums just waiting for
their riddle-solving expertise. Consider:
Why, just seconds after the news is announced
that crude oil prices have jumped to $53 per barrel,
do local gas prices immediately soar to $2.05 a gal-
lon? The gas in a retailer's tanks was refined from
crude oil priced around $35 to $40 a barrel, so
unless there's some magical transportation system
originating in the Middle East, linked directly to a
refinery in the U.S. and shipped 'instantaneously to
stations around the country, these higher gas prices
can only be a windfall for the oil companies.
Question for the mystery lovers "Does such a
magical transportation system really exist I see
magic carpets here or are we consumers just
being taken, again?"
Why, after a much-celebrated conversion to
coal-fired generating plants in the 1980s, is the
Jacksonville Electric Co. (JEA) blaming the "neces-
sity" for higher electric rates on, you guessed it,
higher crude oil prices?
We're concerned here on the island because
every time JEA sneezes, we catch a cold. Florida
Public Utilities buys almost all of its power from JEA
and we were told that JEA's conversion to coal
would insulate area consumers from the volatility of
rising oil prices. Well, JEA has announced two rate
increases in the last six months.
Let's restate the question: "Why, after converting
area generating plants to coal-firing instead of oil,
are two back-to-back rate increases being blamed on
rising oil prices? Does the price of coal mirror the
price of crude oil, or are we consumers just being
taken, again?"
Why, after being told by the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT) that no addi-
tional development would be allowed along the A1A


corridor, are we witnessing
the approval of subdivision
after subdivision, store after
store and mini-mall after mini-
mall along that same high-
Sway?
4 Three years ago I attended
: I- a meeting between the city,
S' county and FDOT officials.
FDOT stated that the A1A
corridor, between the island
and Yulee, had reached "D"
Ron Sapp road status; The next level,
...--- ** obviously, would be "F,"
which would result in com-
THE NO plete shutdown. Therefore,
'SPIN' ZONE state officials said, no more
development along the corri-
dor should be permitted, at least until the creation
of service roads or the corridor was widened to six
lanes.
County officials, envisioning a loss of precious
revenue and completely unburdened by any
thoughts of proper planning or growth manage-
ment, joined with area chamber of commerce offi-
cials and immediately began lobbying FDOT and
elected state officials for the additional two lanes.
Unfortunately, they were told, six lanes would take
approximately eight to 10, years.
Well, we still have the "unacceptable" four lanes,
and I don't see any service roads, so permitting
along "accident alley" should have stopped, right?
For some reason, no permitting along that belea-
guered highway seems to be more active than ever.
Question: "Is FDOT merely taking an oversight
siesta, or are they deliberately looking the other
way?"
Why, after being told by county commissioners
that Crane Island would not be subjected to higher
densities, are we now hearing of plans to transfer
unused development units from the Amelia Island
Plantation to the much-sought-after island?


Why are we still talking about the
development of Crane Island?


The plans are for the resort to purchase Royal
Amelia golf course and transfer unused housing
units to Crane Island. The resort would then market
the course, develop Crane Island and allow those
new island residents membership in the resorts col-
lection of amenities.
Questions: "Why are we still talking about the
development of Crane Island? Isn't it still zoned
Wetlands/Conservation? Didn't the developer's
access agreement with the Fernandina Beach City
Commission expire? If so, where's their access?
Hasn't the state Department of Community Affairs,
the agency responsible for approving the county's
comprehensive plan, consistently refused the coun-
ty's attempt to have the island rezoned? Hasn't
FDOT consistently opposed development on the
island (Well, they could be taking another oversight
siesta, or just looking the other way)?"
Why, we have to ask again, after all of this, are
we still talking about developing Crane Island?
So, mystery enthusiasts, if you're looking for fer-
tile ground to satisfy your investigative natures,
Nassau County is just waiting for you. That is if you
can afford to get here and you survive the trip in on
"accident alley."
Oh yeah, as you're coming onto the island, take a
look over to your right. That pristine island adjacent
to the Intracoastal Waterway is Crane Island. Take a
good look at what Florida used to be it won't be
long before it takes on the look of just another
Florida "destination."

Commission for 21 years. His column appears regu-

VIEWPOINT/BARBARMA PETERSEN/PRESIDENT, FIRSTAMENDMENT FOUNDATION


Time for our leaders to embrace sunshine


"A popular Government without popular informa-
tion or the means of acquiring it is but a Prologue to a
Farce or a Tragedy or perhaps both. Knowledge will
forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to
be their own Governors must arm themselves with the
power knowledge gives."
-James Madison, 1822
Sunshine Sunday, now in its fourth year, is a
campaign sponsored by the Florida Society
of Newspaper Editors (FSNE) to remind
Floridians about the importance of their
right to oversee government through application of
the state's open government laws. This year the
event has taken on new significance: Sunshine
Sunday has become a weeklong national campaign
witd th, wl i l( sppre.X :;;l',/..i i' .I :.iar ticipa un 0f,
many of LernL,.n j s'D' ,aper- and broadcast sa-
tions. .
According to Tom Curley, president and CEO of
the Associated Press, "A better climate for keeping
government as open as possible has to begin with
improving public understanding and support for
freedom of information."
Florida has the most progressive public access
laws in the nation. Under the State Constitution,
the records and meetings of government state
agencies, local governments, school boards, special
districts are presumed open and accessible to
the public, unless there is a specific statutory
exemption. Only the Legislature can create exemp-
tions to our constitutional right of access. Our laws
have set the standard for open government in
states around the nation and many foreign coun-
tries, and undoubtedly will receive particular praise
and scrutiny this week.
Yet despite Florida's reputation for openness,
we're reminded daily of the struggle to ensure that
our government remains open and accountable.
Whether it's a story on the evening news about a
citizen's battle to obtain copies of public records, a
report in the local newspaper on a commission
meeting wrongfully closed, or telephone calls from
frustrated citizens denied the opportunity to speak
at a public meeting, the fight for access is occurring
all over the state of Florida and at all levels of gov-
ernment.
So Sunshine Sunday provides us with more than
the opportunity to educate the public. It also allows
us to shine light on the actions of our elected offi-
cials and the attempts by government to shut us,
the public, out of the processes of our government.
On past Sunshine Sundays I've generally focused
my efforts on our legislators and their attempts to
create new exceptions to our constitutional right of
access the annual parade of horribles. And this
year is not so different from years past. There are,
to date, more than 30 new exemptions being pro-
posed, many of them truly outrageous, pandering
to the interests of various corporations and special

interest groups.
But this year I'd like to take a different approach.
It's time, I think, for us to encourage government
officials to step up and truly embrace open govern-
ment in Florida.
First, let's ask our legislators to enact laws that
bring true reform to our public records and open
meetings laws, reforms that shift the burden of
enforcing the constitutional right of access from the
citizens of this state to a government ombudsman,
that ensure an equal right of access to records in all
formats, that require reasonable and affordable
fees for copies of public records, and that punish
those government employees who wrongly and
intentionally deny access.
Second, we need to demand that state agencies
and local governments develop non- restrictive pub-
lic access policies, policies that adhere to the spirit
and intent of the law and allow unfettered access to
all non-exempt public records and meetings. To
that end, the Legislature must ensure that govern-
ment agencies, particularly local governments,
have sufficient resources whether personnel or
technology or both to train all employees in sun-
shine law requirements so they may provide access
to records and meetings quickly and efficiently.


Finally, let's call on Gov. Jeb Bush to set the stan-
dard for open government in Florida and across the
nation by embracing not only Florida's constitution-
al requirements for open government, but the spirit
of the law as well. We shouldn't have to beg or bat-
tle for openness, ever.
We're fortunate to have a growing cadre of
reform-minded legislators: Dan Gelber, Dudley
Goodlette, Arthenia Joyner, Jack Seiler, Anne
Gannon, Fred Brummer. And our new legislative
leaders, Senate President Tom Lee and House
Speaker Allan Bense, have continually shown
strong support for open government, as has
Attorney General Charlie Crist Let us all hope that
next year, the fifth anniversary of Florida's
Sunshine Sunday, we have a growing list of public
servants to' honor and reforms worth celebrating.
To quote Senate President Tom Lee, it's imperative
that our government recognize "that the public's
confidence is shaken when" its actions are "cloaked
in secrecy." :. .

tions in 5,000 years, and the people seem
to be reveling in their new freedoms.
Women have been allowed to vote, and
make up a large portion of the new Assembly.
Iraq had its first election in decades, not without
violence, but an Assembly one-third women -
has been elected and a new Constitution written by
the Assembly is in the works. Terrorists continue to
try to threaten the new order with suicide bombings
but, despite the killing, the citizenry seems over-
joyed with their new freedom and with their own rep-
resentatives running the country.
Lebanon has announced its plan for real elec-
tions, the Syrian army is on its way out of that coun-
try, and the Syrian government itself big support-
ers of world terrorism is itself clearly weakened
and may eventually fall.
After years of being a renegade state, Libya has
given up its nuclear ambitions and has decided to
join the community of nations.
Egypt and Saudi Arabia have made public moves
toward greater democracy. Iran is watching the drift
in the region and is concerned because its young


people clearly smell freedom.
Seems like a lot of good things are happening,
movements that seem destined to reduce the level of
terrorism in the world and make it safer.
But we still have troops in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Yes, and the local governments want them there,
probably for a long time, because our troops definite-
ly add to the stability in their countries.
Three of the greatest recoveries, from wartime
destruction to economic success, can be found in
Japan, where we still have troops and military bases
60 years after Japan surrendered; Germany,.where
we still have troops and bases 60 years after
Germany lay beaten and devastated; and South
Korea, where we still have troops and bases 50 years
after the Korean War ended. There have been few
complaints about those troops. Governments do not
see us as occupiers. Instead, our military presence
has definitely contributed to their peace and to their
economic successes.
We are still in Kosovo and Bosnia too, and there
is relative peace there, and our presence adds to the
regional stability.
And there are a number of restless places in the


world, like Haiti, where we do not have a military
presence, and where instability still reigns.
So why is it bad if American soldiers wind up stay-
ing in Iraq for another 10 years? Wouldn't that be a
great investment, if peace is ultimately achieved.
Is it just possible we are on a road to a more
peaceful Mideast? Wouldn't that be great for world
peace?
But we are still losing American soldiers! True,
and God bless every one of them. And hundreds of
thousands more who made the ultimate sacrifice in
WW1 and WW2 and Korea and Vietnam and Kuwait
and Afghanistan, and who are the reason we in
America are free and prosperous and enjoying life as
we know it today. Thanks to all of them, and to the
1,500 fallen soldiers in Iraq who have helped make
our country safer.
Our president, attacked by many, has stood firm
in his beliefs. Opposed by many, he has had the
courage to stay the course.
We may actually be on a promising road to a
more peaceful Mideast. Maybe it's time to support
him, encourage him, pray fot him. History may

from school. Now she wants the
school board to investigate what
went wrong.
"I really feel like we were let
down in this situation," McIntyre
told the school board at its regular
meeting Thursday, especially con-
sidering her son's disorder.
"It's sort of the enemy at the
door," McIntyre said Friday.
"Because with autism, they will
withdraw into their own world, and
they like it there."
While she and her husband
work hard to stimulate their son -
he has a blue belt in Tong sue do,
speaks some Korean, receives
tutoring and physical and occupa-
tional therapy and is even entered
in an upcoming 5K race he
needs a school setting to develop
a peer group, said McIntyre, some-
thing that is particularly hard for
autistic people to master.
"At what point do I say, in all
due respect, 'It's not my problem.'
A teacher is injured and misses
100 days. It's not my problem. It's
not Connor's problem," said
McIntyre. "Somebody needs to
step up."
"I think this is an issue we will
constantly be working on," said
schools Superintendent John Ruis,
referring to ESE standards and the
apparent lack of communication
with parents regarding FCAT
rules.
"We do need to do a better job
of making second grade parents
more aware" of FCAT and other
third grade requirements," said

Diane Patchen, director of excep-
tional student education. She had
to cancel numerous appointments
after her husband was badly
injured in a motorcycle accident,
contributing to the 7-week delay
meeting with McIntyre.
While she is barred from dis-
cussing individual cases, Patchen
said all children on track for a reg-
ular high school diploma are
required to take the FCAT. The
state does offer an alternative
assessment, but a child has to
demonstrate impaired cognitive
abilities and an IQ below 70 to qual-
ify, she said.
Rules for FCAT alternatives,
such as a portfolio of work showing
proficiency, are regulated by the
state, said Ruis.
McIntyre said because Connor
has a normal IQ and does not
receive life skills training as his
main curriculum, as some autistic
children do, she was told he would
have to fail the FCAT before he
could be considered for the port-,
folio option.
That's a rule she finds unfair,


especially when a child hasn't had
the opportunity to learn the cur-
riculum.
It is "a complex issue," said
Ruis, who has a meeting sched-
uled with the McIntyres later this
month. "But if we need to be get-
ting information out to parents...
then that is something we will
address."
McIntyre who quit her 18-
year career in the hospitality indus-
try to volunteer extensively with
the school district, including fund-
ing and teaching an ESE art class
- is now asking the district to pro-
vide a tutor four hours a day, four
days a week until Connor masters
the third grade Sunshine State
Standards. She wants him to con-
tinue' his speech and occupational
therapy at Emma Love Hardee
Elementary, as well as participate
in one class a week.
To prevent the same thing from
happening to other parents and
their children, McIntyre told the
board, "I would like the preparation
process for ESE students taking
the FCAT to be a resource class
and to be outlined in the IEP plan."
She added, "I would like for
ESE parents to be offered a chance
to accept or decline the offer to
hear more about the FCAT and its
repercussions prior to third grade."
McIntyre said Friday that when
Connor was diagnosed with
autism, her husband questioned
whether they should spend his col-
lege fund on early intervention,
such as tutoring and therapy.
"I said, 'No, because that kid is
going to college, even if I have to

the discussion.

departments. "How to get that cop
into a church" was the follow-up.
Other topics under discussion
included: What do we do with the
unspoken... suicide of an officer?
When do our personal politics
interfere? What about race? Is
recruiting minority officers a role
for chaplains? What is the chap-
lain's role with school resource
officers?
The answer to one question -
how do we minister to those who
"outrank" us? had an unexpected
answer because notification of the
death of the mother of Fernandina
Police Chief Robert "Chip"
Hammond came at the moment
the out-of-town officers arrived,
and McFadyen took them to meet
the chief and to experience the
answer to that question.
Other topics included: What is
the value of going to classes and
schools with officers; How much
"ride-along" is too much? With the
increasing multi-ethnicity of the
community, "How's your Spanish,
Cantonese, Russian?" And, where
were you on the last hostage situ-
ation?
Conference guests were the
Rev. Eugene Foster, chaplain to
the Palatka Police; Chaplain Keith

WEDNESDAY. MARCH 16,2005 NEWS News-Leader


New chaplain meets elderly's needs


-and his own


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader

By last weekend, Roland Knight
had been out in the field for three
days, "and it's a blessing to be
there," he says. "I've enjoyed it. It's
remarkable that the Fernandina
police department and the Council
on Aging came together in concern
for the elderly living alone. The
Police Department has done that,
and the Council on Aging has done
that, and people really appreciate
the interest and the help."
Knight, an associate chaplain,
reports to Marty Scott and Capt.
James Thompson of the police
department, and to Ron Kurtz of
the Council on Aging.
The two groups have had input
into a job description that lights
the way for the new volunteer who
is concerned with the needs of eld-
erly people living alone.
Knight retired as CEO and
chairman of the board of a textile
company on Dec. 31, 2002. He says
he had worked in textiles for 41
years before that, but since then,
finding something satisfying and
useful to do had eluded him.
A deacon in the Presbyterian
Church, Knight had had no prior
preparation for his new calling, but
he knew he wanted to be engaged
in a helping ministry, and just such

pendent of his
Quest by the
Fernandina
Beach Police
Department and
Council on Aging.
Knight And Knight could
hardly wait to get
his foot in the
door.
"When I was named a deacon, I
came to realize that visits to the
elderly was something they needed
- and it was something I needed,
too," he says. "I don't know of
another town or community that
does what Fernandina does."
Knight's enthusiasm about the
possibilities the new program
promises is already showing, and
he says he plans to visit elderly
people who live alone five or six
days a week for three to four
hours per day, visiting each one at
least twice a month. He says he
can visit more often than the police
officers or council employees
"because I have the time to do it,"
he says. : ,;
"And you can't be in a real hurry
about those visits. You need to ask
questions about relatives, and
things like whether they are tak-
ing their medicines the way they're
supposed to," he says. "I'm inter-

and to all our dedicated volunte


ested in whether they have any crit-
ical needs and I have already
found a few," Knight says.
"Some of the elderly get food
from Meals on Wheels, and they
are very appreciative. Too, the
Council on Aging picks clients up
and brings them to the center so
they can eat and socialize. The
police department and the Council
on Aging have made a commitment
to do that," Knight says.
The police provide him with the
opportunity to be an associate chap-
lain, and the Council on Aging iden-
tifies needs "to let the people
know they care about them,"
Knight says. "And I have already
identified a need and will see if I can
help to get it met"
The "need" Knight has identi-
fied is to repair a little church from
the roof to plumbing problems to
fresh paint. The church is built of
cement blocks, and the piano needs
tuning, but if he can get those
needs taken care of, the neighbor-
hood kids can come there for social
events, and perhaps, he says, there
can be, services for approximately
60 to 80 people all that the little
church can hold.
"A few good men and women
,',can handle that," Knight says. "The

is on the way, and a group will work
on it and find a way," he says.
"These people have courage. They
were not sitting around complain-
ing."
Knight says the role of associate
chaplain is best identified for taking
an interest in elderly people who
live alone. "If people have particu-
lar needs, then the FPD and the
council want to know what it is," he
says. "These people have faith,
courage, peace and needs," he
says.

"Theodore," a tugboat designed and built by Bill McNeal of
Jackson-ille. a member of the Pirate's Flag Modeler's Club of
Fernandina Beach. joins two model sailboats in the lake
behind Marche Burette.


"Everybody's got to have a
hobby," says Ralph Stangel. But
not everyone would devote five
years to just one example of that
hobby. Stangel spent about a year
building his wooden destroyer ship
model and several more years get-
ting it "fully founded."
The six-foot model boat has
three working cannons, which cre-
ate quite a bang when fired.
Stangel is a member of the Pirate's
Flag Modeler's Club of Fernandina
Beach, founded by Hal Mather six
years ago.
Members come from Nassau
and Duval counties in Florida and
southeastern Georgia. Their model
boats are sailed at Red Leaf Lake
on the Amelia Island Plantation
one Saturday per month beginning
in March.
All areas of modeling ships,
trains, planes and cars are includ-
ed in the club, but the emphasis is
on model boats. There are no
rules, no dues and no true offi-
cers. "We threw the rule book out
the window," said member Frank
Ryczek. The group is chartered
by the Scale Ship Modelers of

Duval resident Bill McNeal was
among members sailing their boats
on the lake behind March6 Burette
during a special Super Bowl
Saturday exhibition.
His tugboat "Theodore," based
on the PBS character, is made of
balsa wood and Fiberglas. The
radio-controlled boat features mov-
ing eyes, a horn and makes a chug-
ging sound as it glides through
the water.
, The Pirate's Flag Modeler's
Club meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth
Monday of each month at St.
Peter's Episcopal Church.
Meetings are "upbeat and
informative" with hands-on semi-
nars that "will keep you at the peak
of interest." For information call
261-6420.

canons.

3 held after assault


outside sandwich


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Three Fernandina Beach resi-
dents were charged with various
crimes after a man was beaten with
brass knuckles outside a local sand-
wich shop.
DeltonyAndre Calhoun, 31, 816
South 12th St., Mark Christopher
Holcey, 21, 619 South 10th St.,
and Shirlene Roberts, 18, 1527
Lewis St., were arrested and
charged after the March 9 incident
outside Firehouse Subs on Eighth
Street.
A Fernandina Beach couple told
police that after leaving the sub
shop a white four-door Chrysler
with a spare tire on the front pas-
senger side drove through the park-
ing lot at a high rate of speed and
almost struck the wife.
The husband yelled at the driv-
er, a woman, who backed up and
stopped, according to the police
report Calhoun and Holcey exited
the vehicle, struck the husband with


a pair of brass knuckles, knocking
him to the ground, and began to
kick him, police reported.
Roberts exited the vehicle and,
brandishing a golf club, approached
the wife, yelling at her, police said.
The wife ran into the sub shop,
which called police. Calhoun,
Holcey and Roberts then report-
edly fled in the vehicle.
Roberts was arrested a short
time later at a store on Lewis Street
by a police officer who said he found
a golf club, burnt marijuana ciga-
rettes, cocaine and drug parapher-
nalia in the car.
The men were arrested after
being booked into the county jail
Friday on subsequent unrelated
charges. They were arrested after
being seen in a four-door Mercury
that matched the description of one
used in a gas theft at the Flash
Foods on Sadler Road.
Calhoun, driving that vehicle,
.ignored an officer's emergency
siren and lights and traveled at a
high rate of speed westbound on


i shop

A1A, northbound on US 17 and
westbound on Pages Dairy Road
until crashing into the side of
Southeastern Bank on AlAin Yulee,
police said. He fled on foot and was
arrested at a nearby residence.
Holcey was detained at the
scene and discovered with a plastic
baggie of cocaine, police said.
Calhoun had been sought on a
Nassau County warrant for sexual
battery. He is now charged with
felony counts of sexual battery, flee-
ing and attempting to elude police,
aggravated battery and a misde-
meanor charge of driving with
license suspended or revoked.
Bond is $50,002.
Holcey is charged with felony
counts of possession of cocaine and
aggravated battery.
Roberts is charged with felony
counts of aggravated assault and
possession of cocaine and misde-
meanor possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and use/pos-
session of drug paraphernalia.

Public loath to punish

parents for kid's crimes.


University ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE Americans
believe parents bear some respon-
sibility when their children break
the law but are reluctant to throw
the book at mom and dad when the
kids go awry, says a University of
Florida researcher.
"The desire to get tough on juve-
nile crime has led to more broadly
defined parental responsibility laws,
but we found that public support
for these measures is actually rela-
tively low," said Eve Brank, a psy-
chologist in UF's criminology
department who led a national study
of parental responsibility law.
The parental responsibility laws,
which hold mothers and fathers
responsible for their children's
crimes, have developed as one solu-
tion to the public outcry against
.* -1 -I l~l"1 W i l Mt '-1 1. JVti
juVenile delinquency, rank said.
The issue of whether parents
should be held responsible was
raised in the 1999 Columbine school
shootings, as well as in other
episodes of juvenile violence in
recent years, but Brank's study is
the first to determine whether the
public supports parental responsi-
bility laws, she said.
Sixty-nine percent of those sur-
veyed in the study said parents of
teenagers who commit crimes were
most responsible, in addition to the
teenager. Peers came in a distant
second at 22 percent, followed by
the media, 9 percent, and the
schools, less than 1 percent Few
people supported blaming and pun-
ishing only the parents, Brank said.
"The survey respondents might
have viewed parents as morally
responsible for the actions of their
children but thought that imposing
a legal punishment on only the par-
ents was too harsh and took the
notion of responsibility too far." she
said. "It's also possible they were
thinking only of traditional crimi-
nal,punishments, such as impris-
ormnent and fines, when asked
abolt punishing parents."
The study,. which Brank did with
Victoria.Weisz. a psychology pro-
fessor at the University of
Nebraska's Center on Children,
Families and the Law, appears in
the September-October issue of the
Journal o.f Criminal Justice.
The question- about parental
responsibility-wasincluded as part
of a larger national Gallup Organiza-
tion telephone survey conducted in
November 1999. Using random
digit dialing, a total of 469 men and
519 women wereasked: "When a
teenager commits crime, which of
th following is most responsible, in
addition to the teenager: parents,
pebrs, media or school?" They also
were asked whether they agreed
oridisagreed with the statements,
"Parents are to blame when their
child breaks the law" and "Parents
should be punished when their
child breaks the law."
Juveniles are being tried as
adults at younger ages and for a
wider variety of crimes as part of a
trend to place greater emphasis on
punishment, Brank said.
Although the public believes
juvenile crime is increasing, the
opposite is actually true, with a 58
percent decline in juvenile homi-
cides since 1994, Brank said.
Another study showed Americans
mistakenly believed juveniles were
responsible for 53 percent of the
homicides in, the United States,
when, in fact, they were responsible
for about 9 percent, she said.
The idea of parents taking
responsibility for their children's
crimes is not new, Brank said. The
oldest form is civil liability statutes,


in place in every state, which allow
cases to be brought against parents
for malicious acts their children
knowingly committed.
At least 36 states have mandated
some type of responsibility provi-
sion beyond civil liability for par-
ents or guardians of delinquent
children, according to the U.S.
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delin-
quency Prevention. In the past two
years, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana,
Missouri and Texas have enacted
legislation requiring children and
parents to participate in communi-
ty service activities after the youth
has been in trouble with the law.

Florida's


freshmen


ready to


cut a rug
T he University of
Florida basketball
team, not unlike
Scotty from Austin
Powers, is on fire.
The Gators dominated
Kentucky twice in eight days
once in front of about
24,000 Wildcats fans prov-
ing that they are the team to
beat in the perceived weak
Southeastern Conference this
season.
And for the first time in 40,
tries, they are SEC
Tournament Champions.
Never mind what the polls
say or where a room full of
brainiacs picked the Gators to
play in the NCAA
Tournament. Billy Donovan
has his boys playing well at
the right time of the season.
Rather than fizzling out like a
dud sparkler on the Fourth of
July, the Gators are halfway
up the fuse and threatening to
blow up the Big Dance.
Beating Kentucky at its game
was a huge first step.
So what's the difference
between this Florida team
and each of the last four that
have failed to advance beyond
the second round of the Big
Dance?
Freshmen. Freshmen who
play like seniors. Freshmen
who aren't intimidated by the
likes of Kentucky's Kelenna
Azubuike (gesundheit).
Freshmen who want the ball.
in thelr hands v.ith the sec-
onds ticking off the shot
clock. Freshmen who don't
know they're supposed to be
intimidated by 24,000 fans
screaming for them to fail.
Al Horford and Corey
Brewer are the difference.
These guys don't plan on
going home early this year.
They heard about a dance, a
real big one, and they are
ready to bust as move on
America.
David Lee, Matt Walsh,
Peep Roberson, Mike Miller,
Donell Harvey, Brett Nelson,
just to name a few, are all
great Donovan recruits and
all eventually made a name
for themselves in the orange
and blue. But none had the
immediate impact that
Brewer and Horford are hav-
ing in 2005. Brewer's motor
never stops running and
Horford, plain and simple, is a
man. Azubuike (bless you),
thought of as one of the pre-
mier players in college bas-
ketball, found himself
harassed by the ball-hawking,
Brewer and was pretty much
ineffective in Sunday's game.
And Randolph Morris. Who?
Exactly my point. Horford
made Kentucky's starting
center disappear.
Brewer and Horford do all
the little things and they do
them with pride, almost
bravado. I couldn't count on
all my fingers and toes how
many times I've seen Horford
knife through the lane and
steal an offensive rebound
from over the top. Or how
many times Brewer has pick-
pocketed an opposing point
guard to seize momentum for
the Gators.
A peek at the box score
would say that Roberson or
Walsh, the SEC Tournament
MVP, were the heroes and,
scoring wise, they were. But
Brewer and Horford give the
Gators a defensive presence
like they haven't had since
Donovan's been in
Gainesville.
Beating Kentucky at its
game (yeah, they play football
in Lexington but it's merely a
stopgap until basketball sea-
son rolls around) on what

Freshman on fire for FBHS


BETH JONES
News-Leader
She was the county's most valuable
player last year and crowned the home-
coming queen, but that was at the middle
school. When India Johnson stepped into
the gym at Fernandina Beach High
School last fall for basketball tryouts, the
slate had been wiped clean and she would
have to prove herself all over again.
The 14-year-old freshman accepted
the challenge and earned a spot as a var-
sity starter for the Lady Pirates.
"I play my best regardless," Johnson
said. "I give it my all every game."
Briah Shuster, first-year head basket-
ball coach at FBHS, said he was a little
skeptical when Johnson attended open
gym sessions.


"I wasn't sure if India would be able to
handle the pressures of being a fresh-
man, the point guard and in a leadership
role on the team," he said. "After we start-
ed practicing, it became very apparent
she was going to be one of our better
players because she could handle the
ball better than anyone and hit just about
any shot from inside 17 feet.
"I still wasn't sold that she could run
the team because she was so quiet and
our team was so young and inexperi-
enced, but she was the best we had and
earned the right to play. I just hoped the
team could get enough experience, grow
up fast and not lose confidence in them-
selves."
Johnson led Nassau County in scoring,
averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 steals and 4.9
assists per game for the Lady Pirates.


k7'.


She tops the all-Nassau County team as
the most valuable player for the 2004-5
season.
"Whatever I get on the court to do, I
put my heart into it, offense, defense,"
Johnson said. "I just love basketball."
Johnson's talent emerged at an early
age..
"When she was three years old she
would go down the sidewalk dribbling
the basketball," said her mother, Deena
Raysor.
Johnson attended a fundamentals
camp when she was a preschooler, but
counselors soon realized the pint-size
wonder already had a solid foundation
in basketball.
"I already knew the fundamentals,"

March 17, 1902 Born on this date,
Bobby Jones, was the only player in
the world to win the grand slam in
golf. In one year, 1930, he won the
four major tournaments of the time:
the British Amateur, the British Open,
the United States Amateur, and the
United States Open. From 1923
through 1930, Jones won 13 champi-
onships in those four annual tourna-
ments, a record that stood until it was
surpassed by Jack Nicklaus in 1973.


Both the uphill and the down-
hill bunker shots provide differ-
ent challenges, but both can
be addressed to provide an
easy solution. For the uphill
bunker shot, address the ball
with it forward in your stance
and your shoulders tilted more
than normal. You do this with
your shoulders in order to hit through the ball
without digging too much sand out as you
make your swing on the ball. There can be
no denying that the downhill bunker shot is
the more difficult of the two shots. The
biggest problem that the amateur golfer has
is getting the ball up quick enough to get it
out of the bunker. Your hands need to be
ahead of the ball to create a descending
blow. The most important aspect is that you
have to hit the ball with authority to get it out
of the bunker rapidly.

she said. "I would help the other
kids."
She played on co-ed teams at
Peck Gym through the city of
Fernandina Beach Parks &
Recreation Department, and
Johnson said she was never intim-
idated by her male counterparts.
"India has natural ability,"
Shuster said. "I think I noticed that
when she made some of the junior
varsity boys players look bad dur-
ing pick-up games. But sometimes
what I think people miss is the fact
that she has good fundamentals.
Oftentimes you'll have kids with
tons of ability but have learned bad
habits, have a strange shot or can
only dribble with one hand.
"When India arrived, she had a
great shot, could dribble past any-
one with either hand and was
ready to play. Nothing n,-d-ed to be
fixed. think her roum had ;rom,-
thlb 'd1W& dat. All she need-'
ed to do was learn what was
expected and to try to improve her
skills against better competition."
Johnson became a crucial com-
ponent of the Lady Pirates.
"When she was not in the game,
it was hard for us," senior Wooda
Smith said. "She had a big impact
on the team. As a freshman, she
showed great leadership."
Don Roberts coached Johnson
three years at Fernandina Beach
Middle School.
Last year, Johnson helped steer
FBMS to a county title and was
named Nassau's most valuable
player.
"The very first day at practice,
we knew she was special," Roberts
said. "She is a very talented bas-
ketball player."
Roberts remembers a junior
varsity game against a county foe.
Johnson hit a three-pointer in dou-
ble overtime for the win.
She played a few varsity level
games as a sixth grader, but her
last'two seasons at FBMS, she had
a starring role on the varsity.
o"She's very intense," Roberts

And Johnson admits she does-
n't like to lose.
"I was simply impressed with
her ability to adjust to the varsity
level the way she did." saidWanda
Saunders. head girls basketball
coach at Hilliard. "It ruly think she
filled the role of a point guard very
well to be a freshman."
"India didn't play like a typical
freshman," Shuster said. "She was
very steady, which is exactly what
our young team needed. She
learned how to make the team bet-
te:r and win without doing all the
scoring herself.
"We continued to play and
improve as a team throughout the
year.
"I was little worried when I was
'told that India was winning this
award because she might feel
more pressure because expecta-
tions would be higher next year.


India Johnson in action.


But India has shown she can han-
dle it"
Johnson has had to handle
more than just pressure on the bas-
ketball court. She lost her father
last summer. William Johnson, a
police officer in California, was
killed in 2004. His funeral was on
her birthday.
"He always called her for
updates," Raysor said. "He'd say
'Let me speak to my brat.'"
Johnson said her father played
basketball and so did her aunt,
Susie (Grant) Brown.
"She gets the basketball from
her," Raysor said.
Johnson wants to play as a pro-
fessional, according to her mother.
She penned a paper in third grade
and had already decided then she
wanted to play for the WNBA.
Johnson isn't taking a break in
the off-season. She's running the
lOO1rii is a le.gof the 4\lfni i relay
tbani and it 3okling the tongjp,-r
for the Pirate track andfield team
this spring.


IEWTON


"Anything that's a challenge
drives her and keeps her going,"
Raysor said.
Johnson is joined on the all-
county team by her teammate, Laci
Roberts, a junior at FBHS. Laci
Roberts averaged 10.7 points and
10.9 rebounds for the Lady Pirates.
Also on the team are a pair of
West Nassau High School juniors,
Jenna Jones and Portica Simmons.
Jones averaged 11 points per game
and Simmons averaged 11.56 and
11.8 rebounds.
A pair of Hilliard players are
also on the team. Katherine Carr,
a junior, led the Lady Flashes with
10.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per
game. She also shot 60 percent
from the free-throw line. Armeta
Lewis is the lone senior on the all-
county team. She scored 83 points
and pulled down 126 rebounds this
season for Hilliard.
Honorable mention: Ashley
Sweat, WNHS 'Cissie Juislvnn and,
Kenan Roland FBHS; and Latesha
Henry, HHS.

OUTDOORS


NSFA holds


2005 drum


tournament

"Charles Edwards and I were real lucky to have
won last year's drum tournament," Lonnie
Freeman said. "It normally takes a drum larger
than 72 pounds to win the title, but fortunately for
us, no one caught one. I talked with Gene Davis, a
fishing buddy of mine, and he said that he had
caught a much larger black drum but gave it to one
of his buddies."
Edwards and Freeman were black drum fishing
during late March last year in one of Freeman's
secret fishing holes when Freeman hooked the
"It had just turned dark
when that big drum took my
blue crab and clam bait,"
Freeman said. "It put up a
respectable fight and, within
five minutes, I had that big
drum roped off to the side of
our fishing boat"
0 / Freeman and Edwards were
Terry Lacoss fishing just off Main Beach last
Terry Lacoss spring when they landed the
-- ** largest drum of the tourna-
OUTDOORS ment
"When the drum are really
running in close to the beaches, they often keep
beach residents awake at night as they feed in the
shallow surf," Freeman said. "Just off Main Beach
there are several deep sloughs that attract sand
dollars, which is one of the black drum's favorite
meals. When they are grinding away on these sand
dollars, the noise is often loud enough to keep
nearby beach residents from enjoying a quiet
night's sleep."
Drum fishing has improved during the past few
fishing seasons with regular catches of black drum
being made weighing from 50 to just over 70
pounds. Some of the best black drum fishing
waters includes the Breakers and Black Hammock,
located in Nassau Sound, the tips of both the St
Marys north and south jetty rocks and the many
deep sloughs that are located just off from the surf
and Main Beach.
A major black drum run normally begins during
late March during a full moon, lasting right
through the month of June.
"Years ago, several saltwater fishermen formed
a drum fishing club when the drum began to run at
Nassau Sound," Freeman said.. "It got to be real
popular and we expanded our get-togethers by
renting a large revival tent and setting it up over-
looking a high bluff on Talbot Island. We had pool
,tables, card tables, bunks and we cooked our own
meal''Wheh'nw'wereh't fishing for drum:.Through
the years, the drum club began to lose many of the
members as they grew older, moved out of town
and passed away."
The drum fishing tradition has been carried on
through 'the Nassau Sport Fishing Association by
running an annual drum fishing tournament This


year's event is the seventh annual and will begin
with a captain's meeting on Friday. The meeting
will begin at 7 p.m. anldwill be held at Kraft Athletic
Club, or Ten Acres.
Entry fee is $30 per angler with 80 percent of
the total entry fees going back to the winners. The
tournament will run through April 24. Winners will
be rewarded at the NSFA social event on April 27,
beginning at 7 p.m. This function will also take
place at Ten Acres.
Contestants can weigh in their catches at
Leaders & Sinkers bait and tackle, which is located
on 14th Street For more information, contact Don
Whitman at 321-2800.
A few small drum weighing to 30 pounds have
been reported being caught at the Nassau Sound
and the tip of the St. Marys south jetty rocks. Black
drum weighing to 15 pounds have also been caught
recently by surf fishermen. Look for some real
heavyweight black drum to show up during the full
moon, which will arrive on March 25.
Blue crabs continue to be the bait of choice for
black drum fishermen, and occasionally fishermen
will borrow a few blue crabs from a local commer-,
cial crab fisherman's trap. Taking crabs from a fish-
erman's crab pot is like robbing a bank, so don't do
it!
Instead you can catch your own blue crabs or
purchase them from a local bait and tackle store.
Other delectable baits for black drum include-large
shlfirih"Z5',fTh, clarrfg 6diR mbiiti'f6fa~ yof>''
these three baits.
Current fishing regulations for black drum in
Florida waters allow fishermen to keep five per day
measuring at least 14 inches and up to 24 inches in
length. One of the drum may measure over 24 inch-
es.


TERRY IACOSS/SPECIAL
Boats anchor just off the tip of the St. Marys south jetty rocks and fish for giant black drum

Management is opening commu-
nication lines with anglers. The
agency wants to learn more
about what it would take to
improve fishing opportunities
here.
"We're trying to evaluate the
performance of the previous fish-
eries division over the past five
years and find ways to improve
it," said Darrell Scovell, who
heads the new division. "We
hope to measure our progress,
identify areas that need attention
and work with communities to
make things better."
Scovell said the FWC is com-
mitted to conservation programs
that are based on scientific
research and produce the kinds
of results anglers want to see.
As a first step in this process,
the FWC is asking anglers to
take part in a survey it has post-
ed online at http://www.survey
room.com/FisheriesInput. Most
people are able to complete the
questionnaire in about 15 min-

spend a weekend learning a vari-
ety of outdoor skills April 8-10.
The FWC invites women, 18

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman
camp to improve their outdoor
skills and enjoy a few recreation-
al activities. In four, four-hour
sessions, workshops teach skills
associated with hunting, fishing
and other outdoor recreation at
all levels of physical activity.
The Becoming an Outdoors-


Woman program offers a fun and
supportive atmosphere to experi-
ment and enjoy the camaraderie
of others who want to learn
about Florida's great outdoors.
Although it is designed with
women in mind, the camp is
open to anyone who wants to
learn in a comfortable, non-
threatening, non-competitive,
hands-on atmosphere. The
camp's instructors strive to make
participants feel at ease.
"Patience is the secret to the
success of our Becoming an
Outdoors-Woman program," said
Lynne Hawk, director of the pro-
gram. "Our instructors are here
to guide people through the
activities. There is no intimida-
tion."
The workshop will take place
at Camp Wallwood on Lake
Talquin near Tallahassee.
Sessions will begin Friday morn-
ing and end Sunday afternoon.
The cost is $175, however a
limited number of partial scholar-
ships are available for low-
income participants; single par-
ents and college students. The
workshop is limited to 100 partic-
ipants on a first-come, first-
served basis.

simplified the permitting process
for using triploid grass carp, a
non-native fish, for controlling
undesirable aquatic plants. The

zation which, among other
things, realigned and centralized
the permitting section. This
effort will improve efficiency and
help customers receive permits
more promptly.
Applicants for triploid grass
carp permits now can apply
online and receive permits imme-
diately if they meet FWC criteria.
Existing permit holders also can
reprint or view the number of
carp remaining on their permits.
Customers can apply onliqe at
Floridafisheries.com.
Applicants who do not have
computer access or need other
assistance can contact Sharon
Anthony at the FWC's Eustis

I fear that my column has
evolved from gentle obseva-
tions of life on an island off
the northern coast of Florida
to medical problem of the week.
Yup, ifs me again, back at the
doctor.
As one friend observed, we
turn 60 and the warranty runs
out. Sixty seems to bring
increased body work and, in
some cases, part replacement.
So put me on the list of people
you don't want to ask the ques-
tion, "How are'you doing?" We
are thinking of adding a new
answering system on our tele-
phone. When someone calls they
can press one for all the gory
details, two for the short version
or three for none of the above.,
It started with a pain in my
lower back and then my left leg
began to numb. An informal sur-
vey of friends and family uncov-


ered a wide variety of experi-
ences and advice regarding back
pain.
Suggestions included chiro-
practors, acupuncture, yoga and
either stay put or keep moving. I
was ready for voodoo, but instead
went to a doctor who referred me
to an orthopedic specialist.
So began my latest medical
adventure. The orthopedic spe-
cialist immediately ordered an
MRI long on my short list of
things I didn't want to do. Just
thinking about it made me antsy.
When the doctor mentioned the
dreaded letters MRI, I must have
looked alarmed. After he left the
room the nurse attempted to
calm me.
"You'll be alright. Think of it
as a tanning bed, that helps."
I arrived at the island's new
open MRI office and was soon
escorted to a room with a huge,


squeaky
clean state
,. of the art
MRI
machine.
Tanning

FROM THE technician
PORCH was experi-
enced in-
calming nervous hyperventilating
patients. She smiled and
explained exactly what was going
to happen.
As instructed, I climbed up on
the table and lay flat on my back
staring at the ceiling. A button


was pushed and I started moving
toward the huge waffle iron. No
way was my body going to fit into
the narrow space I could see wait-
ing for me. As the tech left the
room she called out over her
shoulder her last advice "Close
your eyes." I did and the machine
sucked me in. So there I lay, lis-
tening as the oddest series of
chirps and buzzes came from the
machinery above me. I was deter-
mined and managed to fight my
panic and claustrophobia, hoping
for an answer to the mystery
back pain.
Later my doctor explained that
an MRI is a series of pictures,
each like an individual slice of
bread. Furthermore, the bread is
sliced both vertically and horizon-
tally. I could not help but think
that the doctor was looking for
mealy bugs in my back. Big Guy
and I sat in the doctor's office


looking at the X-rays and MRI
study while the he explained
what had been found. He proudly
pronounced "I've got good news.
We found the problem."
The "good news" required sur-
gery to remove an arthritic cyst
that had found a home in my
lower back and pinched a major
nerve to my right leg. Removing
it would end my mysterious on-
going pain and numbness.
The surgery is done. We are
getting used to the drill. Leave
home in the dark and arrive at
the hospital and get in the assem-
bly line. All went well, we were
home before supper. So now I am
"cystless" and once again thank-
ful for the talents and technology
that have made me well at least
for a little while.
