Stop-work order upheld


3 houses

violate

city code
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners voted 3-2 Friday evening
to uphold a stop-work order for
three houses under construction
on South Fletcher Avenue.
Commissioners then voted
unanimously to direct staff to inter-
pret city codes as requiring height
to be measured at the mid-point
from the peak of the roof to the
lowest eaves of the main roof- not
eaves on a first-floor garage roof
as was done for the houses at 2252,
2262 and 2272 South Fletcher.
The South Fletcher property
owner and builder of the three
houses were informed they could
ask the Board of Adjustment for a
variance to city code, the
Construction Appeals Board for a
ruling on how the houses can be
brought into compliance with
codes, or they could alter the struc-
tures that is, make the houses/
shorter or farther away from
neighbors.
A lawsuit may be in the offing,
and some commissioners indicated
they are not satisfied that the con-
troversy has been completely
resolved.
"Didn't this set off some red
flags, that these three houses were
different from anything that had
been built?" Commissioner Ken
Walker asked city staff.
'These three buildings are a lot
different than anything ever built"
on -he city's oceanfiont, Walker.
adding. "Th 're"s'some answers
somewhere.... I would like some
more answers."
About 50 people .attended
Friday evening's special meeting,
and those who spoke had qttes-
tions as well. "Why has it taken so
long to reevaluate those interpre-
tations?" asked Sharon Barlow, a
South Fletcher resident. The stop-
work order was issued Thursday,

Construction was halted Thursday on three oceanfront houses on South Fletcher Avenue,
above, that are now ruled to be in noncompliance with either the city's codes restricting
height or defining setbacks from neighboring properties. The city building department
allowed the builder to use a first-floor garage roof, bottom arrow, in measuring height. Height
has been traditionally measured, however, at the mid-point between the peak of the roof, top
arrow, and the lowest eaves of the main roof.


Gerrity, Roland


clash at forums


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
A campaign between two may-
ors seeking election to the
Fernandina Beach City
Commission, has become increas-
ingly contentious as Tuesday's vote
approaches.
On Thursday, Mayor Greg
Roland criticized former mayor Joe,
Gerrity for "a clearly misleading
ad" that the mayor said mischar-


acterized his handling of a dispute
over construction of three houses
on South Fletcher Avenue.
Gerrity, who opposes Roland
for a three-year term as the group
2 city commissioner, has made the
city's approval of the South
Fletcher houses a centerpiece of
his campaign. The ad in the March
30 News-Leader accused Roland of

121 sex


offenders


in county

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Recent reports of the kidnap-
ping and slaying of a young Florida
girl, allegedly by a convicted sex
offender, have Nassau County par-
ents wondering what theykcan do to
keep their children safe. There are
121 registered sex offenders living
in Nassau County, according to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
Thanks to the Public Safety
Information Act, passed in 1997,
there is information available to
the general public intended to help
safeguard their children. The infor-
mation can be tound as close as
their computer or telephone.
Florida parents can visit
www.fdle.state.fl.us to find a list of
registered sex offenders in their
area, or they can contact the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) at 888-357-7332. The
Nassau ,County Sheriff's Office
(NCSO) website, www.nassau
countysheriff.com, also has a link
to a list of registered sex offenders
in the area.
Ten of the registered Nassau
County offenders are listed as "sex-
ual predators," a legal designation
reserved for individuals convicted
of more than one sex crime, sexu-
al offenders who use physical vio-
lence or sexual offenders who prey
on children.
Sexual predators are considered
"extremely likely to use physical
violence and to repeat their offens-
es," according to a legal brief from
the FDLE.
1While registered sex offenders
are allowed to work or volunteer
anywhere, unless the condition of
their probation states otherwise,
sexual predators are prohibited
from working or volunteering with
children.
For the past eight years, indi-
viduals convicted of sex crimes
have been required to register with
local law enforcement agencies
where they live.

Candidates criticize city manager


GLENDA S: JENKINS
News-Leader
The three candidates for the group 3 city com-
mission seat criticized the city manager's perform-
ance and called for the city commission to hold him
accountable.
During Monday's candidate forum, sponsored
by the Concerned Friends of Fernandina, Ed Coop,
Martha Garvin and Bill Leeper told more than 50
audience members that the relationship between
the city commission and City Manager Bob Mearns
needs improvement.
"I'm not crazy about the relationship," Garvin
said, responding to a question from the audience. "I
don't like his management style."
The city commission 'is the boss of the city man-


ager" and "he needs to empower the department
heads" whose "creativity is stifled," she said, because
they follow his direction exclusively, without the
freedom to innovate.

Piercing Studio on 14th Street, with his crew, Preston Hawk,
Mister Luther and Tiffany Luther.


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Dan Hendrick's first profes-
sional tattoo was a small eagle on
his upper right arm.
He was in the U.S. Coast Guard
at the time, but he had stumbled
.upon a new calling.
Twenty-six years and many,
many tattoos later, he and his wife
Melinda own two tattoo studios in
Georgia and recently opened a
third, at the Eight Flags Shopping
Center in Fernandina Beach. .
They attend tattoo conventions,
take tattoo cruises to the Caribbean
and produced 'Tattoo TV," which
aired for 16 weeks on the local
cable TV channel in Macon, Ga.
They are even being considered

Those under 18 must have a notarized letter from a parent or
guardian. Those under 17 must have a parent present.
All clients undergo screening for health risks, said owner Dan
Hendrick, although oftentimes the biggest risk with tattoos is "some-
one picking one out hastily and not liking it later."

Spouses, the reality TV show that
airs on Fox. Hendrick is waiting to
hear back after sending in more
video footage this week.
"I started getting tattooed when
I was in the military and I just loved
it," said Hendrick. "I love the
lifestyle. I love the people."


He also loves his new home,
found after a long search up and
down the coast.
"I like the town. It's just some
place to kick back on the beach,"

News-Leader

When Americans move and
more and more of us do just that
each year it is usually accom-
plished in the early or mid-sum-
mer, after school is out, and the
weather is accommodating.
* Moving companies shift into
rb : high gear in the spring, prepar-
ing for the influx of orders.
4 'So, also, do phony moving
brokers, anxious to make big
bucks off the unwary, the
rushed and the naive. It's becom-
ing a disturbing nationwide
trend, and stories of rogue
movers gouging customers with
high profits and holding their
possessions hostage until outra-
geous fees are paid are becom-
ing common.
Moving is traumatic enough,
without this kind of injury. So, if.
you or someone you know is con-
templating a move soon, here are
some ways to protect against this
kind of scam:


Re-
search. Get
referrals and
check for
complaints
(try the
Better
Business


Bureau, too) whether you are
hiring an independent mover or
a name brand mover.
Do get estimates from at
least three movers, in person.
And be wary of those who pro-
vide an estimate on the Internet
or over the phone. Moving
scams will ordinarily start with a
very low estimate and then hold
your property in ransom until
you pay the final bill, which is
often several times higher than
the estimate. So, after doing
some research with other
movers, you can reasonably
assume that a too-good-to-be-true
very low estimate is well too
good to be true.
Ask, and check to see, if the
company is a member of a trade

they may be taken to North

Recycling is not onjy an

to dispose of things in a responsi-
ble manner. Nassau Habitat also
has aluminum can bins located at
many places on the island.
Aluminum cans may also be left
at North Nassau Recycling.

association. If they are, this is a
good sign that they are reliable.
For example, companies
approved by the American
Moving and Storage Association
are expected to abide by its pric-
ing standards and federal con-
sumer-protection rules. And
members of that organization's
certified program also volunteer
to uphold its code of conduct,
requiring disclosure of moving
information to customers, writ-
ten estimates, timely service,
prompt response to complaints
and arbitration of disputes.
An up-to-date certificate
shows that movers have assets
and are true businesses, so ask to
see a current certificate of insur-
ance.
On moving day, be sure you
are there, standing by, and be
sure that all goods are being list-
ed. On one of our several moves,
certain items, including an
expensive saddle, did not show
up at the destination point, nor
had they been included on the


mover's list (I call that premedi-
tated theft.) But because I had
observed the items being loaded
and had jotted down each item's
box number probably because I
had some kind of gut feeling of
mistrust I was finally reim-
bursed by the company. But it
took perseverance!
Another time, the mover had
marked down everything as
"damaged," so that if anything
actually were, they wouldn't be
held legally responsible! So ask
to see the list, and don't be intimi-
dated if the mover shows an "atti-
tude" concerning your request!
There are fine, responsible
movers in the business especial-
ly locally so when you are
pleased with the service you
receive write them a letter of
appreciation and tell your friends
and neighbors. Good, honest
service deserves a "good name"
reward.

CRA 'waste of taxpayers' money'


Commissioner questions waterfront'vision'


45-foot-tall along


the riverfront


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The design plan for the Amelia
River waterfront redevelopment
project is "overly aggressive" and
the commission should rethink its
commitment to iumlit o with the
current Couiimtn uly ire( dcvelpinlent
agency (CRA), Commissioner
Mike Lamb said.
"I would encourage the com-
mission to really ',.>ii.i'h r whether
they r w.mi ot I h wlihwith the C RA
in this concept," he said.
Lamb, who,, ,iht m, tk reelec-
tion to his group 3 city commis-
sion seat, told other commission-
ers during a March 30 workshop
that the CRAhas "t,kd-n on a life of
its own." It will not serve the orig-
inally intended purpose of gener-
ating funds to improve the marina
and waterfront infrastructure with-
out burdening the taxpayers, he
said.
"This CRA is a far cry from the
CRA that we first talked about
when we first initiated the CRA,"
Lamb said, calling it "a waste of
taxpayers' money."
Janice and Bob Fleet of Fleet &
Associates designed the plan.
Their presentation consisted of
small-scale conceptual drawings
with design elements drawn from
public input. The plan eliminates
the boat ramp, relocates parking
and a portion of the rail line to pro-
vide safer pedestrian access to the
waterfront, improve traffic circu-
lation and allow the property east
of Front Street "to be developed
more easily." The plan also realigns
a section of Front Street.
Design features include a fes-
tival plaza north of Brett's

"There's going to have to be
either creative overlay zoning
codes .. or something that will
allow this kind of development,"
she said. The Fleets also noted the
need to construct bulkheads and
restore submerged land rights "so
private owners can use their prop-
erty."
The Fleets also recommended
side yard setbacks and architec-
tural design standards to maintain
the historic character and com-
patibility with the working water-
front.
"I guarantee it's not going to
look anything like that," Lamb said,
comparing the city's current mari-
na development plan to the Fleet
design, which depicts an expand-
ed marina extending from the
O'Steen property to the Port of
Fernandina. But such a private
marina is "a vision" subject to per-
mitting.
"We were asked to come up
with a vision of what it could look
like, and it's just that," Bob Fleet
said, admitting that roadblocks
may emerge. "This is what it could
look like. It's the best case, in our
view, of what it could become."
"I wanted you guys to do just
what you did," Roberts said. "All I
asked for was a concept and you've
given us this ... I think this is a
pretty good idea. Aid I think
there're some things here that we
can certainly work with."

GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers expressed mixed feelings March
30 about residential use included in
the latest plan for the Amelia River
waterfront development project.
"I have mixed emotions about
living down on the waterfront," Vice
Mayor Beano Roberts said. "How
much they're going to be obstruct-
ing my view of the river I question."
The commission's response dur-
ing the workshop was marked by
concerns about the 45-foot-high
mixed-use development, including
residential use, in the Fleet &
Associates conceptual design.
Saying that the waterfront
should benefit the public interest,
Commissioner Mike Lamb called
for commissioners to vote to pre-
vent any development of residen-
tialuse of the waterfront.
"Residential, absolutely not,"
Lamb said. "I just don't think it will
work, especially a 45-foot-high build-
ing. There's going to be a lot of
objection to that in the community."
"I'll have to be convinced,"
Mayor Greg Roland said, noting his
reservations about residential use"

on the waterfront. "I don't think I'm
willing to give up any restriction on
the height."
Planner and architect team
Janice and Bob Fleet said the pro-
posed residential use reflects the
desire of most of the waterfront's
private property owners.
The owners want "to have some
sort of residential on some of their
property, whether second or third
floor," Janice Fleet said. "They did-
n't feel they could justify redevel-
opment of their properties" with
only commercial establishments.
Private owners also believe that
"to add all commercial to the entire
waterfront wouldn't be successful,"
Bob Fleet said.
Most private property owners
talked about a pedestrian walkway
on the river side, Janice Fleet said.
But to acquire easements for
access to the river, the city should
consider negotiating with private
property owners, she said, "because
your right of way does not extend all
the way through."
'They would be granting an
easement to the public to cross their
property and to use a 12-foot section
of their property," Bob Fleet said.
"So maybe there's a tradeoff."

ALICE WALSH/NEWS-LEADER
Elaine Hoffman, master pet groomer, relaxes at her home
on North 19th Street in Fernandina Beach with two of her
dogs, Nitro and Blaze. Hoffman has opened a catered serv-
ice that provides pet grooming in the owner's home.


Master pet groomer

makes house calls


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Since 1998 Elaine Hoffman
has groomed hundreds of dogs
and cats for shows and for dis-
criminating owners who take
pride in their pets' appearance.
She has won many awards for
her work, and in 1998 was named
the American Kennel Club
Breeder of the Year for her beau-
tiful champion Yorkshire terrier.
(She also breeds champion-line
dogs.)
Now this.master groomer has
opened a. service on Amelia
Island called "Precious Furs."
Conveniently, she grooms pets
in the owner's home rather than
a shop, where the dog or cat is in
familiar surroundings.
"I worked for years in busy


grooming shops where nervous,
frightened animals were groomed
in assembly-line fashion. It's a
high-stress environment for pets
as well as groomers, and,many
pets put on the brakes as soon as
they realize where they are going.
"In such an environment, acci-
dents can happen, because the
animal is nervous or frightened
and the groomer rushed.
"I found that I simply couldn't
work that way, grooming up to 18
dogs a day. It wasn't enjoyable.
So I came up with what I think is ;
a better idea. :
"Now, I come.to your house.
Your pet is in his own territory,
and doesn't feel victimized. You're
there to watch the process, and
talk and soothe your pet while he
is being groomed. I don't mind at
all when owners want to stand
beside me while I work," said
Hoffman.
"In fact, I value the opportuni-
ty,to at with,the owner about
her pet, and contribute sugges-
tions on diet and;,home ,care,.,,
There isn't time to do that in a
shop. Also, in this way, the owner .
gets exactly the grooming style
desired and doesn't end up with
some unhappy surprise."
Hoffman also breeds
Ravenwood miniature pinschers
and Yorkshire terriers, champi-
onship lines. When she enters
grooming competitions, she
prefers working on champions.
"They stand still and are trained to
cooperate. That's a real help to
the groomer, who can then con-
centrate on the procedure during
the contest."
She strives for show quality in
all her grooming assignments -
quality that can only be accom-
plished with undivided individual
attention and hand-scissored fin-
ishing. No cages, no cage drying
(she uses a hand dryer), no long
waits for your pets to come home
and no hassle for you.
Grooming charges range from
$30 to $65, according to the breed.
Hoffmran can be reached for an
appointment and further infor-
mation at 556-6511.

Blockbuster

admits its

'late fees'
Florida and 47 other states have
reached an agreement with
Blockbuster, Inc., to settle allega-
tions that it deceived consumers in
advertising its "no late fees" pro-
gram.
Under the settlement, Block-
buster has agreed to provide
refunds, credits or coupons to con-
sumers who lost money because of
the misleading promotion and will
drop misleading signs and adver-
tisements that did not fully inform
consumers that rentals could be
converted into sales if they were
not returned promptly.
The state attorneys general
alleged that the advertising cam-
paign was misleading because it
failed to clearly and conspicuously
disclose that a consumer who rent-
ed a video or game from Block-
buster and kept it more than seven
days after its return due date would
be charged for the selling price of
the video. After that, a consumer
wanting to return the video would
be charged a "restocking" fee of
$1.25, or higher at some stores.
Under the terms of the settle-
ment, Blockbuster will pay the

MARKET Commis-
sioners had
PLACE issued a stop-
work order on
the construction due to public
outcry. The controversy centered
on the black-and-white principal
of whether building codes had
been followed and, just as
importantly, enforced.
After an hour of discussion, it
was difficult to ascertain how the
three houses were permitted on


the limited lot. Building officials
said the builder followed the
height/setback code, as it is writ-
ten. But they pointed out that the
code is confusing and, here's that
word again, open to interpreta-
tion.
Upset residents spoke out
against the houses and the prece-
dent they could set for future con-
struction. An inferno of concern
has erupted over rapid develop-
ment in a quickly shrinking city
in terms of available land.
The three houses in question
were built "following a different
set of rules," one resident, who
also lives along the beach,
charged.
The confusion stemmed from
the building code's wording in
regard to measuring the height of
a house as well as the lowest
"eaves." This was interpreted in
this case of taking a measure-
ment of a lower-level roof along
with the 35-foot peak, and averag-
ing the two together in a convo-

luted calculation essentially
requiring the houses to have
smaller setbacks.
Hence, you have three tall
houses crowded onto a beach-
front lot.
Commissioners did not just
blame the builder. They also
looked inward with self-reflection,
and self-deprecation. The city
commission "can't get its act
together," one commissioner
spouted. (This could be interpret-
ed as an understatement.)
Apparently the inferior build-
ing codes had been brought to
the commission's attention sever-
al times in past years. In addition,
there have been "red flags that
these three houses are different,"
another commissioner said.
Each time, however, nothing was
done.
The commission acted this
time, voting during the meeting
to tighten the building codes per-
taining to height and setbacks.

adjoining the main roof, will be
used in the calculation for set-
backs.
Therefore, a lower-level roof
that covers a first-floor door, for
instance, cannot be used in the
calculation meaning the set-
backs will be greater. And crowd-


ing several houses on a lot will
not be allowable because it will
be stated in simple, black-and-

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6,2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Bunkum
Bunkum is the only word that can describe ("Crane
Island, 'the right way'," March 30). To suggest that the
Amelia Island Co. is a benevolent organization dedi-
cated to finding worthy environmental projects is not
credible, not feasible and resembles a politician's elec-
tion promise. When a developer tells you he is look-
ing out for public interests, be very, very afraid.
The "environmentally sensitive" project will involve
removing not only trees, but digging out the center of
the island itself to create an "upscale" marina. The area
currently designated contains Native American mid-
dens, as located by the Florida archaeology survey. The
only land set aside for conservation would be wet-
lands and setbacks which cannot be built upon anyway.
Because the proposed development is on a part of
the island designated conservation/wetland by the
future land use map (FLUM), not zoning, the Civitas
Corp. has a right to build one unit per five acres. To
increase density in a coastal high hazard area serves
no environmental or public interest at all. This would
certainly be contrary to the lofty ideals of Mr. (Jack)
Healan (president of the Amelia Island Co.).
The close relationship between Civitas, repre-
sented by Mr. Buddy Jacobs, and the Amelia Island
Co., also represented by Mr. Jacobs, belies a sponta-
neous gesture by the AIP to further environmental
interests. A "slash and burn, pave and plant" style
company, to quote. Mr. Healan; is environmentally
repugnant, but you certainly know where they stand.
The openly exploitive developer could be the mugger,
but the pseudo-environmental developer is a cat bur-
glar, using stealth to accomplish the environmental
theft.
Please Mr. (Vince) Graham (of Civitas), Mr. Jacobs,
Mr. Healan, get a new storyline. Your investors want
a return, we know that. You don't want more density
for public good or environmental betterment. More
density means more money.
We appreciate your past acts, donating Nana, set-
ting aside land on the plantation, fighting super Wal-
Mart off the island and work with the Nature
Conservancy. We will not dwell on any past negative
acts, preferring to dwell on the positive. Nonetheless,
past credits do not forgive obvious problems with the
Crane Island project.
Will there be hiking trails open to the public under
AIC's patronage? Will Alice Broadbent's home site
still be paved over? Is the AIC going to remove the guts
of the island and dig up middens? How much buildable,
currently conservation, upland will be set aside for con-


servation under AIC? Please do not include the 35
acres of Florida Inland Navigation property when you
are calculating good deeds. How much wetlands will
be disturbed with roads and bridges to the island?
Will affordable housing be included? Do you believe
the wetlands surrounding the island would still support
the birds and other wildlife now located there? What
would be the relationship between Royal Amelia Golf
Course and Crane Island? What about concurrency
issues, and evacuation issues? We will only mention the
issues with the adjoining airport, the airport sup-
porters can continue to address those problems.
The idea of "giving" density to the Crane Island
development is an idea previously rejected by the
county commission. To create a special case for this
proposed development flies in the face not only of the
environment, but of basic democratic government.
We urge you to abandon this plan and focus your
energy and resources elsewhere.
Eric L. Titcomb
Nassau County Sierra Club
Crane Island Committee

Symptom of a larger problem
The longer that a city commissioner sits, the less
control we the people have in getting the representa-
tion we should have. By contrast, with shorter terms,
commissioners are more accountable to the citizens
and we have more say in how our government oper-
ates.
Therefore, any attempt to change our city elec-
tions that give the commissioners longer terms is
obviously taking away that accountability and should
be rejected.
We are not alone in this blatant attempt to under-
mine the "government by the people" principle. What's
happening here in Fernandina Beach with the election
change referendum is symptomatic of what is hap-
pening almost everywhere, and at the state and the
national levels also.
From the incomplete wording of this referendum,
to the state supreme court rejection of the Hometown
Democracy referendum and the introduction of laws
making it harder for citizens to initiate changes to
the Florida Constitution, all the way up to Washington,
with the "nuclear option" proposed in Congress to
eliminate the filibuster.
What we need to do is fight these intrusions that
governments, at every level, are attempting against the
rights guaranteed with our democratic representa-
tive government And it seems we must constantly fight

Are we becoming another Hilton Head?

A s a local real estate salesman, my feelings
about the poorly controlled growth and
development on Amelia Island may not be
shared by many others in my profession.
But as a native of this island and a concerned citi-
zen, I feel that we are about to become another
Hilton Head Island unless we do a better job of con-
trolling our growth.
Have you been to Hilton Head lately? I first visit-
ed there in the early '70s when it was a pristine
oasis, much like Amelia Island. But now, Hilton
Head has become so congested with strip malls and
overdevelopment that it has lost much of its appeal.
That is exactly where we are headed unless we can
control growth on Amelia Island.
Our primary goal should be to promote and
maintain a superior quality of life on Amelia for our
children and grandchildren. Our natural resources
are limited, so we must preserve the remaining
environmentally sensitive land which is still unde-
veloped on the island for future generations to enjoy.
Right now, we're not doing a very good job in a
number of areas. Here are just a few of our prob-
lems which we need to solve:
Our city and county governments do not ade-
quately enforce existing regulations on building and
development. For example, there have been few, if
any, fines to builders and developers for violating


Hilton Head has become so congested

that it has lost much of its appeal.

Amelia Island


tree ordinances in a number of instances where
they have clearcut land because it is easier and less
expensive than preserving trees.
The use of variances has become so prevalent
that almost all variances for higher density of prop-
erty are approved. More of these requests for
changes in zoning or increased density should be
turned down; otherwise, there is no need to have
any kind of zoning regulations or restrictions.
Our beachfront'is fast becoming one solid cor-
ridor of homes crammed together so that they pre-
vent any view of the ocean from our oceanfront
highway. As old homes are torn down to make room
for larger and taller structures, we are rapidly losing
our views and our small-town charm.


As a veteran of more than 25 years in the real
estate business, I am convinced that once we lose
the things that made us such a desirable place in
which to live, local real estate values will start to
decline.
Our natural beauty, small-town atmosphere and
relatively low density are among the things that
have attracted residents to our island. But we are in
danger of losing our greatest assets.
My thoughts are not to stop growth completely
but to allow sensible growth while requiring local
government to establish reasonable development
regulations and then to enforce their own rules.
What purpose does it serve to set rules but then not
follow them or enforce them? By not fining those
who violate the rules while allowing almost every
variance for higher density to be approved is a for-
mula for disaster.
Before it's too late, you should get involved in
local growth issues and the politics that allows
development to take place on our island. Get to
know you city and county commissioners and tell
them how you feel.
If you want your children and grandchildren to
enjoy the naturally beautiful island of Amelia, you
should do something to help preserve our quality of
life. Otherwise, like Hilton Head Island, we will not
get a second chance.

No changes to city elections


Fernandina Beach voters
could act Tuesday to change
the terms of election for city
commissioners. We urge you to
vote No on this ballot referen-
dum.
The ballot language is, we
believe, confusing, and does not
accurately reflect the intent of
city commissioners who chose to
put it to voters.
An election every other year
for four-year terms would allow a


majority of commissioners to be
replaced at one time, disrupting
the continuity built into our sys-
tem of three-year terms with
elections every year.
Nor do we advocate a change
from the spring election to sum-
mer or fall to coincide with coun-
ty elections. A vote in November
certainly would bring more vot-
ers out our city elections have
poor turnout but there is con-
cern our issues would be


eclipsed by national, state and
other local elections.
A vote in August to coincide
with the primary election might
favor one political party or the
other and turn our nonpartisan
municipal election into a partisan
'affair.
The amount ofmoney to be
saved; less than $20,000 per elec-
tion, is not worth these conse-
quences.
Please vote No on Tuesday.

Aging building.
"There's something wrong in
City Hall.... .We need to fix it, and
fix it right away," Gerrity said.
After Roland said he opposed
the sale of city land to help finance
a water project at the city golf
course, Gerrity responded, "It was
actually his idea to sell that land out
there at the golf course."
Roland pointed to Gerrity's vote
as a commissioner to settle a law-
suit with Crane Island developers
as "the single biggest problem we
failed to handle" properly.
He and Gerrity continued to
spar over the South Fletcher hous-
es. Gerrity urged that the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
or state attorney general's office
be asked to investigate how the
houses were approved despite
being in apparent violation of city
codes. '"We need an independent
group not one that we're pay-
ing" to conduct the investigation,
he said.

Roland has called for an inves-
tigation by an outside architect to
determine if and how the city erred
in approving a building permit for
the houses. The city commission
was to consider Tuesday night a
proposal to hire an architect for
that investigation.
During Thursday's forum,
Gerrity said, "The city has a histo-
ry of being lax in enforcing their
codes, and a history of selectively
enforcing the codes."
City residents who live west of
South Fletcher "have property
rights too... their property needs
to be protected too," he said, not-
ing the three houses obstruct the
view of those residents.
Gerrity, who was mayor for two
years before losing a re-election
bid to his commission seat a year
ago, has called for hiring a com-
munity development director to
oversee the building and planning
departments, which interpreted
the codes differently in the case
of the South Fletcher houses.
The city's community develop-
ment director resigned two years
ago because of what City Manager
Bob Mearns called "philosophical
differences," and since then the
planning and building department
directors have answered directly to
Mearns.
Roland has opposed hiring
another community development
director, saying more code enforce-
ment officers should be hired
instead. The city now has one full-
time and one part-time code
enforcement officer, in addition to
the city building official, who man-
ages the department.
Gerrity used his final remarks
Thursday to draw a distinction
between him and Roland. "If you're
happy with the way things
have gone in the last year, you
don't need to vote for me because
I'm an advocate for changing," he
said.
"I'm an advocate for fiscal
responsibility. I'm an advocate for
growth management," Gerrity said.
Roland said he opposes "growth
at any cost" and said the city is
revising its Land Development
Code to better regulate develop-
ment
Monday night he took a swipe
at Gerrity. Voters have "a clear
choice in philosophies," Roland
said. Noting Gerrity is a Realtor, he
said, "He's in the business of buy-
ing and selling Fernandina Beach.
I'm not"
Roland emphasized his "hon-
esty and integrity" and said as a
native Fernandinan he intended to
live and die here.
"I'm not part of the establish-
ment around here," Gerrity coun-
tered.
"I'm a free thinker.(.. ( ad) I
have a strong record of being
tough on development," he said.

aVusm Contnmed jrurom 1 .-
more than seven weeks after the
city planning supervisor and plan-
ning board members suggested
the houses did not comply with
code after the building depart-
ment issued permits for them.
"By the way," Barlow added.
"I have never seen houses go up
so fast while I've lived in
Fernandina."
Barlow objected to
Commissioner John Crow's
request to reconsider the stop-
work order because of its effect on
the livelihoods of builder Art
Sanchez and his crew. "He's mak-
ing more than a living he's mak-
ing a killing," Barlow said.
Another South Fletcher resi-
dent Joe Anderson, echoed her
criticism. "These three houses
just jump out at anybody. They
were built following a different
set of rules than I and everyone
else went by."
City Building Official John
Santoloci defended issuance of
the building permits and denied
there was "collusion. or sinister
goings on. That's absolutely not
the case." He pointed again to
what he called "holes in the zon-
ing ordinance" regarding height
restrictions.
"If you ask 10 people, you get
10 interpretations," he said, quot-
ing a local architect on the issue.
"We really need direction on this
thing."
'Well enforce any ordinance
that we're given. We just need this
clarified, really," he said.
He got the clarification from
commissioners after the novel
interpretation used in this case
was explained by Planning
Supervisor Lupita McClenning,
who objected to it from the begin-
ning.
Sanchez asked for, and the
building department granted, a
building height based not on the
midpoint between the peak and
the lowest eaves of the main roof
but of the eaves of a small roof
over a ground-floor garage. City
law requires one additional foot of
setback from neighboring prop-
erty for each additional foot of
height over 20 feet, so the dis-
tinction proved critical.
The building is 34 feet, 8 inch-
es tall, and the mid-point between
the peak and lowest eaves of the
main roof is 31 feet, 6 inches.
Using the first-floor roof, howev-
er, the mid-point is measured at 21
feet.
As a result, the houses are only
6 feet from the neighboring prop-
erties instead of 16 feet, 6 inches,.
as they should be, McClenning
said.
SFollowing her presentation,
Crow asked Santoloci, "You
reviewed the plan and
approved the permit Does


"Yes, sir.... If you take it strict-
ly the way it's written, I say yes,"
Santoloci said.
"I read it I interpret it I look at
it and read it just like Mr. Santoloci
does," Crow said.
Crow absolved city staff of
blame for the issue, suggesting
the commission was at fault for
not acting sooner to reconcile the
conflict He noted that Santoloci
had asked two years ago for a
review of the codes on height
restrictions and a subcommittee
had studied it, but the commis-
sion never acted on its recom-
mendations.
"That committee met for over
a year, I'm sure," City Manager
Bob Mearns agreed. "But noth-
ing ever came back to the city
manager or to the city commis-
sion." Sanchez was a member of
that committee, which did not rec-
ommend that a first-floor roof
could be used for the purpose of
measuring building height.
Vice Mayor Beano Roberts
suggested the code be amended
to remove the loophole used by
Sanchez. "It needs to be so set in
stone that anybody can interpret
it We're at fault for that"
An amendment to the code will
be brought back to the commis-
sion later this month, City
Attorney Debra Braga said.
"' feel Art Sanchez should have
known better, and the building
department should not have inter-
preted it that way," Marilyn
Williawnson of North Fletcher
Avenue, a planning board mem-
ber, told commissioners.
Bill Conger, who also lives on
North Fletcher and is a planning
board member, agreed. "Never in
the eight years I've been on the
(Planning Advisory Board) have
we ever interpreted it... as less
than the main roof eaves," he said.
Pointing to the first-floor
garage roof eaves, Conger said,
"None of these come close to ever,
ever being interpreted by your
(Planning Advisory Board) to be
a roof eave."
"I do not believe Mr. Sanchez
is totally guiltless here.... He's
taken advantage," Roberts said.
"That's not illegal, butI question
the ethics behind that."
Mayor Greg Roland agreed,
saying the plan was "ethically if
not legally" flawed. "To reward
somebody for taking advantage
of a loophole, I don't think that's
fair," he said.
Roland, Walker and
Commissioner Mike Lamb voted
against Crow's motion, leaving
the stop-work order in place.
Roberts supported Crow's motion.
j Crow's motion to use "the
main roofas the measuring point,
in the future was then unani-
mously approved.

agree on


height
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Mayor Greg Roland and for-
mer mayor Joe Gerrity, his oppo-
nent in Tuesday's election for a
Fernandina Beach City
Commission seat, agree on at
least one thing: they don't want
45-foot-tall buildings in the city.
"I think 35 feet is the (maxi-
mum)" building height appro-
priate, Roland said at a candidate
forum sponsored by Concerned
Friends of Fernandina.
Responding to a question
.about a proposed 45-foot-tall
building planned at Second and
Ash streets, he said "now is the
time for the city commission to'
direct city staff to lower it to 35
feet."
There are four vacant lots and
11 non-historic buildings on Ash
Street where current city code
allows 45-foot-tall buildings to be
constructed, the two candidates
were told.
They agreed buildings of that
height are incompatible with
neighboring houses and com-
mercial buildings along Ash
Street. "We need to have com-
patible uses," Gerrity said.
"I'm not in favor of 45-foot
buildings anywhere in the city
except maybe in the (Central
Business District)," he said.
Roland said proposed
changes in the city's Land
Development Code would assure
compatibility, and he favored lim-
iting buildings to heights of
neighboring buildings down-
town.
The Hampton Inn & Suites
on Second Street is an example of
a 45-foot-tall building. The com-
mercial and residential building
proposed at Second and Ash
would actually be taller because
it would have an observation
deck and elevator shaft above
the 45-foot height as allowed by
law.
The city now forbids build-
ings over 35 feet high along the
oceanfront. There has been dis-
cussion of 45-foot-high buildings
along the .Amxlia. River afporDf
of tbiacj faliain pril Olisj
there.

'That's why we're not seeing
change or improvement," she said.
Mearns' "plate is very full,"
Leeper said, adding that there
appears to be "distress" between
the commission and Mearns.
The commission needs to
"make sure he is carrying out their
direction," he said. "We've always
had a history of revolving doors of
city managers" and it is "not going
in a good direction now."
A recent pay increase for
Mearns served as a sign that the
commission approves of his per-
formance, Coop said. But the best
way to improve performance is
"you don't pay him," he said.
"The police department got a 1
percent increase for getting accred-
itation," Coop said, "yet we can give
the city manager 6 percent."
The candidates, who answered
seven questions from the
Concerned Friends, agreed on
enforcing zoning, height and lot
line restrictions at the waterfront.
They also concurred that $20,000 to
study purchasing Florida Public
Utilities was wasted money. And
the city must make the marina
enterprise fund "pay its own way,"
they said.
All three had different remedies
for resolving the question of the
height violations of three houses


on South Fletcher Avenue.
"I think the truth will come out,"
Leeper said, adding that he favors
an independent investigation. "If
misinformation was given out on
purpose, those people will be found
out."
The Florida Department of
Business and Professional
Regulations, which licensed the
contractors, should send an inves-
tigator, rather than the city hire an
independent consultant to investi-
gate possible impropriety, Coop
said, adding that building depart-
ment officials have "actually
worked for some of the (local)
builders" and should not have
been hired, to avoid a conflict of
interest. "We have people (state
officials) that they have to answer
to."
Tearing down the buildings
"would be lovely," Garvin said,
questioning City Attorney Debra
Braga's assessment that doing so
would bring a lawsuit against the
city.
"I'd like to see another legal
opinion," Garvin said. "This came to
light in February and they kept
building."
Garvin, Coop and Leeper also
saw things differently with regard
to the environment and preserva-
tion. Garvin had a different view
than her opponents on the tree ordi-
nance.


"This is where we're not going
to agree," Garvin said when asked
if she favored giving old growth
trees the same protection as her-
itage trees, or those linked to a spe-
cific historic event.
"I'm very strong on private prop-
erty rights," she said, explaining
that the city should not mandate
tree replacement but instead set
an example.
"You call it a heritage tree, I call
it lack of planting," she said. Old
growth trees will eventually die and
"we need to replace them. We
haven't planted any to take their
place. We have to plan for the future
even if it's not our own."
Crane Island's future will
include development "sooner or
later," Coop said when asked if the
island should be annexed into the
city if its developers receive per-
mission to transfer density rights


N
WELL TRAVELED LIVING"
so" "m S.fo .


and build at one unit per acre. "If
not it's going to bankrupt the coun-
ty" due to a pending lawsuit.
"These people have a lot more
money than we have. We cannot
afford another lawsuit," he said.
"We would have to weigh the
benefits of annexation," Leeper
said, calling the Amelia Island Co.'s
developments ."environmentally
sensitive."
Crane Island should remain
environmentally sound and acces-
sible to the public once developed,
Garvin responded, noting face-
tiously she would favor annexation
if the city could restrict the number
of units per acre after the fact.
"I think we should have gotten
in bed with them from the get-go,"
she said. "We should have played
nice. We took an adversarial posi-
tion way too early."

grade is already learning the busi-
ness). "This community is just as
fantastic as can be."
Beyond Taboo Tattoo and
Piercing Studio is only the second
such licensed facility in Nassau
County, said Kim Geib, an epi-
demiology nurse with the Nassau
County Health Department. The
other is the Ink Doctor on Eighth
Street.
"We inspect annually, and dur-
ing the initial licensing we go
through every aspect of their
business," she said. That includes
checking everything from light-
ing and cleanliness to steriliza-
tion procedures (the same as
used by hospitals) and protocol
for patient care, she said.
Geib said it is critical to get
tattoos or body piercings at a
licensed facility. Those who don't
risk a range of serious diseases,
she said, including HIV, hepatitis
C and hepatitis B.
Even amateur tattoo artists
who think they are being safe
risk infection, she said. "What we
have seen, with hepatitis C par-
ticularly with tattoos, is that a risk
factor is reusing the same ink.
Even if you use a different needle,
you are still cross-contaminat-


ing."
In Florida body piercing is
licensed and regulated by the
Department of Health. Tattoo
artists must be under the super-
vision of a medical doctor or den-
tist.
Hendrick, better known by his
nickname ll Rat, said his employ-
ees also undergo Red Cross train-
ing in blood borne pathogens.
Their certificates hang on the
walls of their workspaces.
In Fernandina they include
Mister Luther, a tattoo artist, and
Preston Hawk, who specializes
in body piercing. Along with
Hendrick they belong to the
Alliance of Professional
Tattooists, a national non-profit
organization that promotes safe-
ty issues and professional stan-
dards.
Business has been good, said
Hendrick, noting 45 people were
lined up the first day he opened
his doors.
"People these days strive to
be individual," he said, and tat-
toos help them to achieve that.
"I know people who really
benefited this industry by bring-
ing it out of the gutters. It used to
be just drunken sailors and fallen
women," he said. "These days
there's a lot of art to it."

SEX Continued from 1A
If a registered sex offender
decides to relocate, they must noti-
fy local law enforcement agencies
of their plans to move and rereg-
ister with law enforcement author-
ities in their new home within 48
hours of their relocation.
With a few clicks of the mouse,
or a few moments on the tele-
phone, anyone can learn the exact
residence of a convicted sex
offender. Anyone can check to find
out if registered sex offenders live
near them and, if so, how many,
their names, the crimes for which
they've been convicted and what
they look like.
From the moment an individ-
ual is convicted of a sex crime they
will be monitored by law enforce-
ment agencies for at least the next
10 years.
In Nassau County, Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said his
deputies consistently monitor local
registered sex offenders.
'They don't have the same right
to privacy as the rest of us, accord-
ing to the law," he explained.
"We watch them closely," he
said. "We conduct random checks
on the addresses they've given ...
we verify that they're really living
where they say they're living. If
they're not, a warrant is immedi-
ately issued for their arrest."
And it does happen. Currently
eight of the 121 registered sex
offenders have, at least temporar-
ily, escaped detection by authori-
ties. The website lists the county
and the city where the individual is
believed to be living, but a street
address is unavailable.

by electronic device or equipment.
Kristen Perezluha, spokesper-
son for the FDLE, said designating
someone a sex offender or a sexual
predator is not meant to be a pun-
ishment or a sentence.
"It's just a status that has result-

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Three people were injured
Monday after a truck was pushed
on its side by a minivan in the
parking lot of the U.S. Post Office
on Sadler Road.
According to a report from
the Fernandina Beach Police
Department, at 1:55 p.m. a truck
filled with lawn maintenance and
landscaping equipment was trav-
eling in the parking lot when it
was hit on the side by a minivan.
The impact caused the truck to
roll onto its side.
The driver of the minivan,
Billy Lamar Kendall, 73, of
Fernandina Beach, told police he
had a blackout just before his
vehicle hit the truck.
Kendall was taken to Baptist
Medical Center Nassau along
with the driver and passenger of
the other vehicle. A passenger in
the minivan was not taken to the
hospital.
According to the police report,


the accident caused approxi-
mately $10,000 in damage to the
minivan and $2,000 in damage to
the truck.
The truck's owner, Brandy
Ward, said the driver and the pas-
senger were employees of her
lawn-maintenance and landscap-
ing business.
Ward said neither man was
seriously injured. 'They're alright
- a little banged up, but they said
they should be fine in two or
three days," she said.
The driver and passenger of
the truck were treated and
released through the emergency
room. Kendall remained in the
hospital on Tuesday; he is listed
in stable condition.
Ward said her truck has been
damaged beyond repair, and the
incident will slow her business
temporarily.
"This is our busiest time of
year," she said, "and now we're
half-staffed ... and we don't have
our main vehicle."

one in three major hurricanes

"Over the last four decades the
United States is still well behind the
longer-term century average," said
Gray.
The storm seasons spanning
1995-2004 comprised the most
active 10 consecutive hurricane
years on record, and the Colorado
State team believes that 2005 will fol-
low this active trend. The forecast-
ers believe that the United States is
in a new, multi-decadal era for
increased storm activity.
"We think that the United States
has entered a new era of enhanced
major hurricane activity reflective of
the high activity during eight of the
last 10 years," said Klotzbach. "We
expect this active tropical cyclone
era to continue this year and to span
the next two or three decades."

ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Drivers traveling west on A1A
have seen the large billboard in
Yulee:. "Abortion 10 minutes to

There is a phone number listed
to call for information and help:
225-0109. Another billboard is
placed on US 1 in

non-profit private foundation whose
tax-exempt status is approved by
the IRS. The board of directors
consists of four members at pres-
ent Patricia Ruebush, Joane Wren,
Linda Ezell and Brett Whitaker.
Director of the board William
Guess died in February.
"Bill Guess was totally dedicat-
ed to this work," said Ruebush.
"He strongly felt that God had
called him to this ministry, and he
had the first sign placed on AlA.
The remaining signs followed."
Guess was a broker at First

was the main, supporter of
Billboard Ministries. While Guess

"Bill would sometimes refer
callers to the Greater Nassau
Women's Service or The Inn (an
unwed mother's home) or to other
counseling. He treated everyone as
a unique individual."
The mission of Billboard
Ministries is to provide a news and
information service; to educate the
public to the possible negative
effects associated with a legal
abortion. It is not their mission to
lobby against Roe vs. Wade or to
interfere with a woman's right to
choose. They also state that they
will not try to talk a woman out- of
an abortion, but rather provide her
with all the information necessary
to make what could be a life-chang-


* ing decision.
Billboard Ministries hopes that,
through local contributions, the
signs in Nassau County will be con-
tinued. No one within the organi-
zation receives a salary, and the
office space is donated, so 100 per-
cent off all donations go toward
the placement and maintenance of
the billboards. A ledger of gifts and
expenses is maintained and made
available to the public for review
anytime. Contributions may be
sent to: Billboard Ministries, P.O.

the headquarters at 225-0109 for

Vicky Crews greets her first "grandchild," whose mother,
Margerita, is one of five children she reared. The children's
biological mother was her best friend, who died of a gunshot
wound.



Godplanned



motherhood



allright...


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
When Vicky Crews of
Nassauville stood by the deathbed
of her best friend, mother of nine,
she didn't hesitate. "The children
will be all right," she said. "I'll
take care of them."
It was 1992, and there had
been no time to plan ahead; her
friend was a victim of domestic
violence, and dying from a gun-
shot wound. It turned out that
Crews and her husband ended
up with five of the children, ages
three to seven. The children's
grandparents shared responsi-
bilities for the other four.
"I had never been able to have
children of my own," said Crews.
"Nothing medically wrong; it just
didn't happen. I think now that
God planned motherhood for me,
all right just not in the way I
expected."
It was a fast and unprepared
beginning for a challenging job.
"We went through it all,, from
chicken pox to teenage difficul-
ties. Every day was a new adven-
ture. ,:: ;
... complicate matters, my
husband, Tim, had become sick-
ly a few years after our marriage
and, later, disabled. Although he
couldn't help physically, he was a
fine father and devoted husband,
and I thank God for our 22 years
of marriage." Tim Crews died in
2002.
They had been friends all of
their lives, growing up on adja-
cent farms, and as they grew
older, love blossomed. "I married
the boy next door," said Crews.
Although they were never
blessed with children of their
own, they felt almost as if the
youngest of the children they
reared had always been theirs. "I
had kept Margarita on weekends
and often during the week from
the time she was a few days old,
and there was a special bond
between us like no other.


"I don't know how it is to bring
a child into the world, but I can't
imagine how I could be closer to
Margarita. She's everything I
could possibly hope for in a
daughter."
That little girl grew up and is
21 now, married and the mother
of a brand new baby boy. Crews'
eyes light up with love and pride
when she speaks of him.
"Being there (in Folkston, Ga.)
when he was born was more spe-
cial than anything I could imag-
ine. My first grandbaby; what a
joy he is!"
Crews has married again; she
was to need the support of her
second husband, David, when,
just a year ago, she lost her moth-
er to pancreatic cancer.
"My mother and I were so
very close. Even though she told
me, 'Please don't grieve. I'm ready -
to receive that new (spiritual)
body,' I went into a deep depres-
sion, feeling that now I had lost
everything. How could I go on?"
But she has gone on, relying
on a deeply rooted faith in God
and the support of family and
friends. I, -,
'- '"'"M flder' fiend. Roe"'.
Pearson, has been my angel ri',
Earth. She was there whenever I
needed her, and when things are
getting tough I just go spend the
day with her, and feel renewed."
In spite of her loss, Crews con-
tinues to reach out to serve others
with her boundless love. She vis-
its nursing' homes every
Wednesday and Thursday, along
with several other volunteers.
"Often the elderly feel lonely
and forgotten, and are so in need
of caring friends. That's where
my heart is now, with the elderly,
who are so grateful for the com-
pany and delighted by an occa-
sional gift on special days.
"If people would just quit tak-
ing life for granted each day, and
look around, there's a lot of others
out there who need them."

'Duty and obligation calls


him to join the Guard at35

BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader : .. i '


Sammy Johnson, among the
older recruits for the Army National
Guard, is the stepson of Dan E.
Taylor, the retired former owner of
Taylor's Nursery in Fertandina and
Yulee. Taylor is very proud of
Johnson "because he isat the top of
the age range for enlisfing in the
Guard. And," Taylor says, "Sammy
sure wanted to go." .':
"I felt it was my duty and obli-
gation to go and to serve," Johnson
says quietly. "I felt it was the hon-
orable thing to do."
Johnson is 35 years old, and at
the highest age at which recruits
may join the Army National Guard.
He and his wife, Debbie, are the
parents of 31/2-year-old Emma and
14-month-old Eli (who became a
year old while his dad was still in
boot camp) and rounding out the
family is Bowden, their inordinate-
ly obedient black Lab who, from
all appearances, had Johnson as his
drill sergeant. All are kept busy
enjoying life in Amelia Park, Debbie
Johnson says.
"I love it here," Sammy Johnson
says. "It's so community-oriented."
The family moved into their new
house from their home in Summer
Beach, where they had lived for
six years until last Aug 1. "And I
left for boot camp Nov. 15, so we
really haven't had time to finish fur-
nishing our new house the way we'd
like," he says. "But well get it done."
Johnson is a 1987 graduate of
Fernandina Beach High School and
a 1991 graduate of Florida State
University, where he majored in
marketing and communications.
Debbie graduated from FBHS
in 1991 and from Florida State in
1995. She had met Sammy when
she came home from Florida State
for a weekend, she says, "and I
came home every weekend after
that." They were married in 1996.
While he is gone, Debbie will
continue to run her 14th Street


ENLISTING BY WEB CAM


Retired Lt. Col. Burton Bright
of Fernandina Beach, left,
reenlisted his son, Staff Sgt.
Spencer Skinner, currently
stationed in Korea, via camera
over the World Wide Web on
March 23. Reenlistments
must be done in uniform by a
commissioned officer or a
retired commissioned officer.
Bright is a retired 28-year Air
Force officer. His son is re-
enlisting in the U.S. Army
after nine years.

Sammy Johnson, who joined the U.S. Army National Guard in
September, with his wife, Debbie, and children Emma and Eli.


shop, What's In, Sammy Johnson
says, "and I won't be deployable for
two years."
Johnson himself has been in
business with his dad for 13 years,
and they have now divided the loca-
tions "instead of him being pres-
ident and me being vice president of
all our auto parts stores from
Brunswick to Melrose. Now we're
each president of our own busi-
nesses," Johnson says.
He joined the Army National
Guard last September and was
there until mid-February, Johnson
says, "but I got a couple of weeks to
be home at Christmas and I went
back and finished up that boot camp
by Feb. 1," he says. He is a member
of Troop E of the 153 Cavalry, and
his unit will be deployed to Kabul,
Afghanistan.
"If I stay in the Cavalry Scout


Unit, then deployment for me will
be pretty slim," he says. "In anoth-
er, kind of unit, it would happen
sooner."
He started Officers Candidate
School last weekend, "and I'll be
there for 16 months," he says. "I'll
go away for two weeks twice and
16 months from now I'll be a second
lieutenant. Johnson says he will try
for Military Intelligence once he
graduates from OCS.
"I love the Army. I'm in the
Army National Guard, and when
they activate you, it's just like the
regular Army. I've been thinking
about doing something like this for
the past 15 years," Johnson says.
He and Debbie are members of
First Baptist Church, "and I felt like
God led me to decide to join (the
Guard,)" he says with quiet pride.
"It's a life I love."


Magazine for military spouses


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
Just up the road in St. Marys,
Ga., two female military spous.es
L feO"m tr m ( *f *, 1 ,-
are publishing a magazine named
(what else?) Military Spouse
Magazine. And if the third issue is
any indication of the information
the virtual magazine packs with
regularity, it can prove to be help-
ful to those spouses who have been
making it on their own.
"It's not about waving goodbye
with arms full of children as the
carrier takes off," said advertis-
ing director Babette Maxwell,
whose husband is stationed on the
aircraft carrier Dwight D.
Eisenhower. "We're saying: This is
the life you chose. Here are the
tools to deal with it," she told the
New York Times last February.
"It's not just that our husbands
go off to war. There are a lot of dif-
ferent facets to our life that we want-
ed to bring out: how we deal with
deployment and base privatization,
what opportunities you have out
there for your own career, and
where you can plan a trip for your
family," Maxwell said in that inter-
view.
Neither 33-year-old executive
editor Elsie B. Hammond, 33, or
Maxwell, 34, had had experience in
publishing. Armed with a master's
degree in business, Hammond says
she had had no writing experience
before getting into this venture.
And Maxwell, formerly an engi-
neer, had never had education or
experience in journalism either.
But the two had known each other
for seven years "because our hus-
bands had worked together in
Japan," Hammond says. But their
managing editor, Regina Galvin,
makes up for that lack. "She had
two decades of writing experience
before she joined our staff," the
executive editor said.
"We first thought about doing a
magazine two years ago, did a busi-
ness plan, found an investor (John
Payne, a Georgia businessman who
had bought Coastal Georgia
magazine, which he had hoped to
expand into a regional magazine)
and launched our first issue on
Sept 15,2004. And we thought we'd
go quarterly," she says. "But the
first issue sold out immediately,
and we decided to go six times a
year."
All the military spouses who
work on the magazine work at
home. Hammond lives in
California. Maxwell lives in Virginia
and Galvin lives in Texas, as does
new art director Matthew
Magruder, an Army son. "Our free-
lancers live all over the world,"
Hammond says. "We try to use
experienced writers, especially
because Babette and I have never
had writing experience. We just
rely on the talents of others," she
says.
The Military Spouse magazine
offers a variety of stories on such


topics as starting your own busi-
ness; taxes; the birth of family sup-
port centers; destinations for R & R;
suggestions for preparing for a visit
to hospitalized wounded veterahs;


spouse; Privacy issues and military
medicine; and more.
A year's subscription to Military

Police warn about


prom night dangers


Fernandina Beach Police re-
mind prom night in Nassau County
is right around the corner, and that
means parties and alcohol.
Police remind promgoers that
it's against the law to drink if they
are under 21, and if caught they
could face severe penalties.
"Concerned citizens want you
to have a safe and sober prom. We
are asking all of you teenagers out
there to make the responsible
choice," local police said in a press
release. Historically, prom season
has been a time filled with celebra-
tions, joy and festivities, police said.
Unfortunately, too much drinking,
too much driving, and too little sleep
has made prom night one of the
most dangerous nights to be a
teenager. Fernandina Beach Police


Department offers these tips to par-
ents who want to make their child's
prom night safe and memorable:
Make sure your child has a
plan for the evening and that you
know about it.
Discuss the school's prom
rules with your child and the con-
sequences for violating them.
Don't assume your child isn't
going to drink, designate a driver or
consider alternatives such as a taxi
or limousine.
Encourage seatbelt use, the
best accessory!
Communicate with other par-
ents and school officials about the
evening's activities, and any pre-
and post-prom events.
Serve non-alcoholic beverages
and food at parties.

can't for the life of me fig-
ure out why fans feel the
need to riot after big
sporting events. I mean,
what can possibly be accom-
plished by running around like
a halfwit, tipping over cars and
starting fires.
Police arrested 60
Michigan State fans Saturday
night after the Spartans lost to
North Carolina in the nightcap
of the Final Four. What's sad is
that police would have proba-
bly arrested 70 had the
Spartans won.
Neal: "Hey, Bob, what are
you gonna do tonight if the
Spartans lose?"
Bob: "I think I'll douse a car
in gasoline and shoot bottle
rockets at it."
Neal: "Cool, what if they
win?"
Bob: "I'll probably use
Roman Candles."
Hey Spartans fans, mix in
an anger management session
or two ...
I went to Gainesville to see
a Florida football practice last
week and let me tell you new
head coach Urban Meyer
seems for real. The guy is as
cocksure and confident as
advertised. He doesn't mind
telling you that his offense has
been near the top statistically
since he became a head coach
four years ago which is
reminiscent of a certain other
head coach at UE And he
-douesi,'t h: -irate t, ,put players
in heir places. There is no
"buddy-buddy" taking place
between coach and players in
Gainesville anymore and there
is no, "We're getting better
and better" garbage flying
around.
If a player is stinking it up,
he's gonna read about it in the
newspaper the next day
because Meyer keeps no
secrets.
Injured players no longer
stand on the sidelines and
hope to get well. They push
sandbags and tires around in
"The Pit." If someone's avoid-
ing the "Circle of Hell," a vol-
untary hitting drill where one
player calls another into mid-
dle of a circle and tries to
wrestle him out, Meyer will
find out about it during his
review of the practice tape that
night.
Everything is made into a
competition with a clear-cut
winner and loser. The winners
get cool rewards like T-shirts
and jackets. The losers get
tube socks, underwear and are
made to wear yellow jerseys so
their teammates can easily
identify and harass them.
Meyer seems to have a
blueprint for success. Whether
his plan will hash out in the
powerful Southeastern
Conference remains to be
seen. One thing is for sure:
Win or lose, the Gators are
sure to have a nastier attitude
next season...
Speaking of the Circle of
Hell, Meyer said he plans to
have quarterbacks Chris Leak
and Josh Portis square off on
the 50-yardline before the
Orange and Blue game
Saturday. Stay tuned to find
out whether or not the
coach was joking. He seemed
serious...
* A record 700 high school
football coaches made the trip
to Gainesville for Meyer's
"Legends of Coaching" clinic
at the end of last week, more
than doubling the 320 Ron
Zook pulled in last year.
Makes sense. That's like
Lynyrd Skynyrd headlining
the Jacksonville Fair one year
after Wham...
Just when I thought all the
steroid talk had tapered off, I
find out that Swiss fighting cows
will now be tested for the juice.


I don't know what's worse, that
there are people who watch
cows fight or that somebody is
actually spending money to give
them big muscles.

Pirates victim


of Benedictine

BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirates suffered their seventh loss of the sea-
son at the hands of visiting Benedictine (10-3) out of
Savannah, Ga., on Saturday. The Fernandina Beach
High School baseball team (8-7) was blanked 5-0 by
the visitors.
The Pirates collected just two hits off of Benedictine
pitcher Kamppi, who also helped himself to a double
for his team, which collected eight hits off a trio of
Pirate pitchers.
Chris Conley (.400) and Will Taylor (.317) had
the Pirates' hits. Taylor singled in the second inning,
stole second and advanced to third after a teammate
grounded out. He was tagged at home.
Conley singled in the fourth but was stranded on
second.
D.J. Hyers went five innings for the Pirates, giving
up six hits and four runs (three earned) while strik-
ing out two and walking three. Josh Hyers and Ryan
Estes pitched the final two innings. Josh Hyers gave
up a run on a hit and struck out one. Estes allowed a
hit, struck out two and walked one in the final inning.
Benedictine broke a scoreless stalemate in the
top of the third inning, scored two more in the fourth
and one each in the fifth and sixth innings.
The Pirates hosted Stanton Tuesday and travel to
Callahan Friday night to take on cross-county rival
West Nassau. First pitch is at 7 p.m.
FBHS is back at home on April 12 when they host
'Andrew Jackson at 7 p.m. They host First Coast April

ment, which started Monday, runs through Sunday at

Lomb Championships this year, but unfortunately
my hip doesn't feel good after the two tournaments in
Indian Wells and Miami. Amelia Island is a place I
always enjoy coming back to, especially since I won
my first title there in 2003. It's an excellent event and
I sincerely hope I can be back there again next year.
I wish everyone there well," stated Dementieva.
Dementieva was scheduled to make her sixth con-
secutive appearance at the Bausch & Lomb
Championships.
The 2005 Bausch & Lomb Championships boasts

who is the No. 1 seed. Serena Williams (No. 2 seed
and No. 4 in the world), Venus Williams (No. 5 seed
and ranked ninth in the world), Anastasia Myskina

It is the same story, but a different location on the PGA Tour at the
Bellsouth Classic in Duluth, Ga. Rain washed out play completely on
Thursday and Friday; resulting in only two rounds being completed as of
press time. Two-time champion Scott McCarron is the clubhouse leader
after 36 holes at 6-under-par. The final day of play is scheduled for
Monday, weather permitting. The tournament needs to finish Monday as
players need to make their way to Augusta for this week's Masters. Phil
Mickelson enjoyed a wonderful second round, firing a blistering 7-under-
par 65 to pull within one shot of McCarron. Jose Maria Olazabal and Billy
Mayfair joined Mickelson at 5-under-par and they were hot on the trail of
McCarron. There are 53 players that are within six shots of the lead, so
the final rounds) should be packed with excitement.

April 7. 1935 In what is described
as the "shot heard around the
world", Gene Sarazan holed a 4-
wood from the fairway on the par-5,
485-yard 15th hole at the Augusta
National Golf Club in the final round
of the Masters for a double eagle.
This historic shot helped him tie
Craig Wood after regulation play. A
36-hole playoff was forced the next
day and, Sarazan used the momen-
tum to win the title.

The fairway bunker shot is one
of the most difficult in the game
since we do not see it that
often. Perhaps the hardest
part is to figure out which dub
is the right one to use. The
most important aspect of this is
to not think about the green.
Your sole focus should be on


trying to determine which club will allow you
to dear the lip of the bunker so you will not
bury it in the lip. Here are a couple other tips
to remember when you are playing the fair-
way bunker shot. Unlike a bunker shot near
the green, you do not need to dig your feet in
the sand very much at all. This would make
your feet below the ball and you could hit a
fat shot. The other tip is to not try and make
a fancy shot from the fairway bunker. Just
make your normal swing and the results will
turn out much better than you think.

Big money kingfish events in 2005


New tourney trail

added to the mix

Competitive kingfish teams will have the
opportunity to win a lot of cash during the
upcoming season. In fact, the kingfish sea-
son has already begun with an entirely
new kingfish tournament trail, the FLW Kingfish
Tournament Trail.
The first event was held from Fort Pierce. Friday
and Saturday with Team Cat Daddy taking home
the first prize of $100,000. Louisiana's Danny
Mathis captained the team to a heavy weight of a
kingfish, tipping the scales at 56.5 pounds. The
skilled kingfish team was fishing just a mile off the
beach and in 70 feet of water when the winning
kingfish ate a live blue runner.
The FLW kingfish tournament trail has events
scheduled for June 1 from Venice, La., July 8 from
Mayport and Sept. 9 from Southport, Texas. It
might be noted that some of the prize monies
awarded to winning kingfish are contingency
prizes, depending if you are fishing with certain
products that are major sponsors of the event. For
information on the FLW Kingfish Tournament
series, visit www.flwtour.com.
The popular Southern Kingfish Association tour-
nament trail gets under way with a pro event on
April 21. The event will be held from Fort Pierce
with a $40,000 first prize. Other events include
Fourchon, La., June 2; the BellSouth Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament July 18;
Savannah, Ga., Sept. 1; Moorehead City, N.C., Sept.
30; and a the National Championship from Biloxi,
Miss., on Nov. 17.
The Southern Kingfish Association's Division V
will begin with the Kingbuster 400 on June 9, fol-
lowed by the 22nd annual Nassau Sport Fishing
Association Tournament of Champions ($25,000 for
the largest kingfish) on June 23. The Ancient City
Gamefish Association's Kingfish Challenge is July
8, the 25th annual BellSouth Greater Jacksonville
Kingfish Tournament is July 18 and the third annu-
al Boater's World Tournament of Champions is July
29.

www.fishska.com or call (904) 819-0360.


^ y The big news with king fish-
ermen this year is the addition
of the FLW Kingfish
Tournament Trail. The FLW is
.. no stranger to tournament fish-
Sing as the group has been quite
successful with the FLW Bass
hi4. K fishing tournament circuit and
recently started a FLW Redfish
Tour. One thing different than
Terry Lacoss most tournament series,
... though, is quite a bit of contin-
gency cash awards by major
OUTDOORS sponsors of the FLW tour. You
actually could win the event
and end up with half of the prize monies if you are
not fishing with the right products. Obviously the
sponsors of the FLW Kingfish Tour are serious
about selling their products to competitive fisher-
men.
Capt. Rick Smith of Brunswick, Ga., is fishing
both the Southern Kingfish Association and FLW
tournament trails this year and hopes to add to his
list of three major kingfish titles that his "Wild
Turkey" fishing team has accumulated.
'We are participating with three teams during
the 2005 kingfish tournament season," Smith said.
"We are actually team members of the Evinrude,
Wellcraft and FLW kingfish teams."
With this in mind, the "Wild Turkey" fishing
team should have a wealth of information available
at all of these highly competitive events.
'"We do share information as far as where, how
and when kingfish are biting," Smith said.
"However, in some cases the areas that we may be
catching tournament size kingfish from may be
quite small and will only hold up to two kingfish
boats. In this case, we will simply draw a straw to
see who the second boat is going to be. We are also
very careful with receiving information and making
sure that the information is current and factual."
Obviously the key to being a successful kingfish
team during the 2005 season is being able to com-
municate with other kingfish team members. In
many cases, there just isn't enough time during
practice to cover all of the more popular kingfish
holes.
More than likely, a major factor in winning some
of the big money prizes offered with the 2005 king-
fish tournament trail is working with other teams
and receiving the right information.

Hi, everybody, my name is
Duke and if you call me by
name I'll answer you (dogs
aren't the only ones who
know their names!). I'm a

grown-up kitten is all I am,
plain and simple. I get along
with everyone, cats, dogs
and people too. I just want
to have fun and I like most
everything except this cage I
have to live in. Fortunately
my many foster Moms at the
Thrift Shop let me out quite
often so I get to run around
and get some exercise. A
young handsome gray tabby
like myself needs to keep his
boyish figure, even if I am
neutered I still have my
pride! I've got a lot of
friends here at the shop and
on Monday, Wednesday,


Friday and Saturday, when
it's open, we get bunches of
people who visit us. Yet I'm
looking forward to a real for-
ever home with some nice
folks, hopefully with some
other pets for me to play
with cause I love to play.
I'm a good boy, honest,
not much trouble at all. I
wish you would come meet
me at the shop and consider
taking me home. I'll give you
years of love I promise. You
can call 321-2267 if you
have any questions. The
Angels are also collecting gift
certificates and prizes for
the 4th Annual Super Raffle,
if you have a donation for
this call 277-0144. See ya
soon, thanks, the Duke
Man.
