The leaning lighthouse



of Amelia Island?


Surveywill

detect if


structure

has shifted
BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Is it sinking?
That's a question Hal Belcher
has been asked repeatedly about
the Amelia Island Lighthouse.
Now he hopes a local surveyor
may finally confirm or deny
whether one of Florida's most his-
toric structures will eventually be
known as, "IThe leaning lighthouse
of Amelia Island."
Known locally as "Mr.
Lighthouse," Belcher has con-
ducted hundreds of tours of the
185-year-old structure, which
stands on a hill above Egans
Creek, signaling ships in
Cumberland Sound.
He tells visitors about Amos
Latham, Amelia Island's first light-
house keeper and a veteran of
Valley Forge. He tells them about
'the historic 69 granite steps, hand
hewn and imported from New
England. He tells them about the
Paris-made Fresnel lens, believed
to date back prior to 1800 and still
visible from a distance of 15 miles.
But invariably a visitor will ask
him the same question 'Is it lean-
ing?'
"Ever since the first time I
came up here in 1990, somebody
has mentioned it," Belcher said.
Staring straight up from
beneath the 1ll7-foot tower, it does
appear to sway to'"67i sidie.B1ut
Belcher said it's probably an opti-
cal illusion. There are others who
say the fact only one bearing on
the rotating light still works may
be due to a slight movement or
swaying of the structure. But
Belcher says it's more likely the
bearings are worn out, and could
be easily adjusted. He's also
dropped coins from inside the top
of the tower, and never once has
a one grazed the spiral steps on its


I
























four bearings, right, is
aligned properly makes some
suspicious that the tower



tower's still straight as an arrow.
But he said others fear the
tower's great weight may be caus-
ing it to sink, which could cause a
leaning effect.
Soon, a more scientific
approach might put an end to
mere speculation.
Mike Manzie of Manzie and
Drake Land Surveying in
Fernandina Beach volunteered
his time recently to survey the
tower and make precise GPS


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners voted 4-1 to authorize City
Attorney Debra Braga to defend
the city against a lawsuit filed in
the case of three nonconforming
South Fletcher Avenue houses.
But commissioners and resi-
dents continue to debate about
where to lay blame for the con-
struction of the houses verified
by a consultant to violate the city's
building height limit.
"As a stockholder in the city
of Fernandina Beach, someone
who pays taxes ... I really don't
want to pay money for a lawsuit to
defend the city's position on this,"
said Joan Cory of Beech Street.


"'The city
dropped the ball
on this particu-
lar project"
Property
owner Ronald
Holmes has
sought relief in
Overly Nassau County
Circuit 'Court
from a stop-work
order issued by. the city halting
construction of the three houses
at 2252, 2262 and 2272 South
Fletcher. The lawsuit does not
seek monetaryidamages. .
'The city dropped the ball and
I point directly at the senior city
leadership for lettingthe situation
get to where we are today,"
Commissioner Mike Lamb said at


the May 3 meeting. "But the city
cannot allow that type of con-
struction to go on. It's going to
cost some money to get out from
under it"
Defending the lawsuit is "very
wasteful" and "it should never
have been allowed to happen," he
said, "but I cannot sit up here and
allow a blind eye to be turned and
just let it go on. It's got to stop,"
Lamb said.
Architect and consultant
Robert Overly refused to dismiss
the responsibility building project
professionals assume to under-
stand ordinances. They have a

that their plans comply with the

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Builders may have to pay a
$3.0l,1 transpurtation-r impact fee
for every new home built in rapid-
ly growing areas of Nassau County.
That's almost four times the
county's current off-island trans-
portation impact fee, and would be
in addition to a proposed $3,700
school impact fee under consider-
ation by the county.
The proposed increase was pre-
sented to tile Na-sau County
Commissioners for the first time
at, Monday's regular meeting as
part of a transportation concur-
rency plan.

Murder charge in


Callahan drug death


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A Callahan woman is being
charged with murder after she-
reportedly sold methadone to a
man wh,, 'jtr died oi an.,.,Vrd,.,se
of the drug.
Destrie Alan Curtin, 21, 45308i
Mickler St., Callahan, died April
23. According td the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office, an autop-
sy report determined Curtin died
from an overdose of methadone.
Methadone is an opiate pre-
scribed to people undergoing
treatment for addiction to other
opiates such as heroin and mor-
phine. Police say Angela Edwards
and Charles Lee Brown Jr. said


.. they obtained the
methadone from
a Jacksonville
clinic.
Edwards, 22,
of 45052 Vera
Ave. No. .3, is
being held at the
Edwards Nassau County
Jail on a $150,002
bond. In addition
to the murder charge, Edwards
faces charges of possession of a
controlled substance and sale and
delivery of a controlled substance.
Her roommate, Charles Lee

New shops aid transformation of Eighth Street


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Eighth Street may not look as nice as
some would like, but that's not stopping
some business owners from staying there or
preventing others from moving in.
Shop owner Jeanette Richo, who has
remained inside the Island Plaza at 528 S.
Eighth St for six years, recently welcomed
new neighbors and made two new business
partnerships.


A Mexican grocery and a men's suit shop
have moved in next door to LaToya's, Richo's
hair and wig boutique that also offers
women's suits and accessories.
Richo and her business partners, men's
shop co-owner Joe Brown and Alfretta
DeShields, owner of Jade's shoes, hope to
make the plaza the shopping destination for
upscale apparel.
"You, have to introduce the market for
upscale suits," Richo said about Mr.
Gentlemen's, the men's suit shop she opened


with Brown last week. "We want to appeal to
everyonee"
While you can find traditional men's suits
in Fernandina Beach, Mr. Gentlemen's "fash-
ionable menswear" appeals to more con-
temporary tastes.
The store carries suits in light and dark
solid colors with bold or subtle patterns.
Ensembles feature coats as long as 38 inch-
es with five-, six- or seven-button styles.
"We're getting business from every class
of people, from every race of people," Brown


said. "The whole point of the business is to
serve the community and for people to be
able to buy upscale, designer clothing with-
out going all the way to Jacksonville."
La Rancherita, a Mexican grocery store
that recently relocated to the plaza from
Sadler Road is helping to expand Richo and
Brown's clientele.

store just a block away at 401 S. Eighth St.,

News-Leader
An air conditioner is a
tough piece off equip-
ment that we usually
ignore as long as it
works. But like a car, it needs
regular maintenance in order to
do its best job and last the expect-
ed 15 years.
Without regular maintenance,
an air conditioner will lose about
five percent of its efficiency each
year. That's 30 percent in three
years not a trivial amount in
these days of budget-straining
energy costs.
Also, a properly serviced air
conditioner does a better job of
dehumidifying your home. That's

This is all according to the Air
Conditioning Contractors of
America (ACCA). My own knowl-
edge about air conditioner main-
tenance consists in knowing how
to change the air filter, and a very
few other things, such as keeping
bushes and other stuff away from
the outside unit, vacuuming the
registers and vents, and spraying
off the outside coils, (after the
power has definitely been turned
off). One other thing that I have
learned is that we really shouldn't
close the air supply outlets in
rooms we are not using, because
this is harmful to the operation of
the overall system. All the rest I
leave to the experts and this
goes for my car, too, when it
comes to fooling with all the mys-


terious innards. Mechanical wiz-
ardry is not my forte(.
Now is the time to get this
done, before the hot weather puts
a strain on your air conditioning
system. No one really wants to
shell out money on a working
appliance, but doing so now will
save in several ways in the long
run: (1) You can avoid a sudden
(and expensive) breakdown
which, if it happens, will do so
when the weather is at its scorch-
ing worst and your unit just can't
take it anymore. (2) Your air con-
ditioner will cost less to run on a
day-to-day basis after it is serv-
iced, and (3) it will give your
many more years of efficient
operation.

Impact fees, gas tax part of a plan


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said dramatically in-
creased impact fees are just one
leg in a proposed plan to make the
county's transportation budget
"stand on all four legs."
The other three legs include
developers' agreements that would
make large developers responsi-
ble for building new county roads,
an additional nickel per gallon gas
tax to pay for existing road main-
tenance and reserves set aside to

said, the survey should detect it.
"Gosh it's hard to believe that
could happen, but it's a lot of
weight," he said.
The surveying project was on
the to-do list of a recent grant of
$350,000 the city received to reno-
vate the structure last year. The
tower's exterior was whitewashed,
five of its steps repaired, the metal
work sandblasted, deck plates on
the galley were replaced along with


pay for some improvements to state
roads.
In addition to proposed new
transportation impact fees of $3,000
for new homes, Mahaney said the
gas tax while controversial -
could bring a potential $1.25 million
a year in increased revenue.
That money could be used to
pay for maintenance to 400 miles of
existing county roads. Using an
estimate that it costs $100,000 to
pave one mile of road, Mahaney
said this tax could pave 12.5 miles
of county road each year. That
would be enough, he said, to repave


the braces, and the eaves were
repaired. But by the time surveying
the tower became a priority, the
grant money ran out. There was
also no money left over to replace
doors or the "historic Anderson
windows," as Belcher sarcastically
calls them.
Later, Belcher, a former sur-
veyor and retired employee of
Rayonier, was talking about the
issue with Manzie, who volun-
teered his time and equipment to
do the work for free.


every county road once every 30
years.
Mahaney said he feels large
developers, bringing thousands of
homes into Nassau County, should
be responsible for building the pub-
'lic road systems those develop-
ments will need.
Mahaney said the developer,
not the county, would be the agent
primarily responsible for coordi-
nating with the Florida Department
of Transportation to plan roads and
logistics. These arrangements
could be made in the developers'
agreements where county officials


Belcher said a sinking effect
due to soft, sandy soil and erosion
is a common problem with light-
houses around the world. But
standing on a hill above Egans
Creek, the Amelia Island
Lighthouse is on much more solid
footing than simply sand.
Maybe as soon as next year,
Belcher said we may finally know
the answer to the question of sink-
ing. But unless the movement is
severe, it will probably take longer
before the results are definite.


negotiate the contributions to infra-
structure every new development
will provide to the county from
road improvements to fire stations.
The final leg is to set aside
reserves from the developer's
agreements and impact fees that
could be used toward improve-
ments to state roads such as the
"beleaguered" A1A. The state high-
way is currently operating at max-
imum capacity but is not sched-
uled to be widened or significantly
improved for another five or six
years.

"My hunch is within three to
five years we might see some-
thing," Manzie said. "Unless it's
significant, we probably can't tell
until then."
In the meantime, there's always
more work to be done. Belcher
said another grant or funding
source is needed to renovate the
125-year-old oil house, which is in
dire need of a new roof. He also
wants to find a way to replace those
Anderson windows.

were added up, so that every time
someone has a new subdivision
approved, we can calculate their
total impact fee."
Prepared by county engineers
Jos6 Deliz and George B. Powell,
the plan identifies six future road
projects and their projected costs:
Blackrock Road, Chester Road, CR
108 extension, Pages Dairy Road,
Pages Dairy Road extension and
William Burgess Boulevard.
According to a draft of the plan,
the six road projects will cost
Nassau County a combined total of
$35 million and would add more
than 12,000 total trips a day to the
county's road capacity. Therefore, it
estimates the county will spend
about $3,000 per trip.
In an effort to make new growth
pay for itself, that's the approximate
amount the county will charge
builders for each new home. So 500
new homes in a subdivision would
bring the county $1.5 million in
transportation impact fees.
The county is already charging
smaller impact fees for public safe-

ty, police protection, administrative
services and recreation. Some of
these fees vary for different areas of
the county.
The Nassau County School
District has proposed an impact fee
to pay for new school construction
required by population growth.
Commissioners are expected to
address that request later this year.
Should the county adopt a $3,000
impact fee for transportation, and
the proposed $3,700 impact fee for
schools, builders in some areas of
Nassau County would be responsi-
ble for more than $8,000 per home
in total impact fees.
Builders pay 'impact fees when
they obtain permits for new resi-
dential or commercial construction
in the county. These costs are usu-
ally handed down to the buyers,
who are paying higher prices to
compensate for increased building
costs.

Making an impact


wherever he goes


Dr. James Nicholas
makes an impact most
everywhere he goes.
The man widely
recognized for introducing
impact fees in Florida is in
demand these days. As counties
scramble to find ways to pay for
growth, they often turn to
Nicholas.
A professor at the University
of Florida, Nicholas is hired by
counties to help them figure out
how to pay for roads and public
services and schools. He com-
monly recommends they
increase their impact fees on
new development to pay their
own freight.
In St. Johns County, under
Nicholas' guidance, fees were
quadrupled for some commer-
cial construction. In monetary
terms, the fees for building a
large office building increased
from $2 million to $7.8 million.
Here in Nassau County, offi-
cials are searching for answers
to rampant growth. In addition
to using impact fees, the county
could maximize other fees and
taxes to raise an additional $11
million per year in revenues
(according to a published
report). The taxes would be on
certain services and goods, not
on existing properties.
Our county could probably
learn from someone like
Nicholas. Before that, however,
local governments need lessons
on how to be more frugal and
wise with existing revenues
Houses of Blues
The news continues to
emanate from the tall, newly
constructed houses on the north
end of South Fletcher Avenue.
It has now boiled down to the
blame game. Fingers are point-
ing over who is to blame for the
height and setback of the three
houses, which certainly look dif-
ferent than other structures
along the beach. They have sat
idle for some time after the city

Identity crisis
Not long ago, I wrote a col-
umn about the onslaught of
identity theft. I could speak first-
hand, since it had happened to
me. An overdue phone bill had
appeared on my credit report
from a small town in Oklahoma.
The phone company
informed me that someone had
opened the account in my name,
with my Social Security number,
and had then not paid the bill. It
had since gone to collections -
and then to my credit report.
It is refreshing to know that
victims of identity theft can uti-
lize a repair strategy. By writing
to each of the three credit
bureaus Equifax, Experion
and TransUnion you can
plead your case. They respond
and investigate expeditiously,
and, amazingyly, resolved my
case within a few months.
I simply explained what had
happened, and asked them to
look into it. They did, and
promptly removed the claim
from my credit report (it had r,
-c'hi-.-d r1 mycreditscore t-j drop '
by almost 100 points).
It is reassuring that a remedy
is readily available when some-
thing as disturbing as identity
theft occurs. In this instance, the
system works.

adviser who lives on Amelia

OPINION


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Libraryusers unite
. Re: "Library needs funding,"
Voice of the People, April 27.
Much has been written and said
recently about our Nassau County
Public Library system and the sit-
uation concerning financial sup-
port, lack of space, the loss of state
funding because of shortages in
the county budget, etc. As you may
have already read, the book budg-
et has been cut 75 percent since
2003. Hard to believe, but true.
Our county doesn't begin to
meet the minimum state standards
for books per capital, or space per
capital. And because we don't meet
those state standards, we risk los-
ing state funding. An alarming sit-
uation! As much as $300,000 in
matching funds is at stake.
To make the numbers even
more depressing, we only need to
look closer to home at Amelia
Island and the Fernandina Beach
branch library. Eighty-two percent
of the county's circulation occurs at
our local branch.- yet Fernandina
Beach has only 40 percent of the
square footage! ,
Almost, 28,000 visitors/users/
borrowers passed through the
Fernandina Beach branch last
year. And, for the last several years
almost 2,000 new users have
entered the fold annually.
We library users on our island
represent a dynamic, viable pres-
ence. How do we, as individuals
and groups, improve the situation?
We know we desperately need help
from within our local network -
political decision makers, business
and professional leaders and com-
munity movers and shakers.
Donna Paz Kaufman, president
of the Friends of the Library, and'
Janet Loveless, assistant director of
the library, both professionals to
the core, are acutely aware of the
situation and both need all the sup-
port you have in you to give.
Everyone should get on board.
Money, community drive and polit-
ical pressure are essential!
As the old saying goes, "the
squeaking wheel ." And our
library system is in dire need of
lots of squeaking wheels. Please
help!

Deputy got


off easy

W e believe the sentence meted out to
former Nassau County Deputy Sam
Lucero accused of using his chil-
dren as a shield during an armed
standoff with other deputies was too lenient
Lucero has served about six months
in jail since his arrest July 24 on a variety of
charges stemming from an incident at his in-laws'
home near Callahan. But a plea agreement
accepted by Judge Robert Foster last week
makes it unlikely Lucero will serve additional
jail time.
Instead, he was sentenced to four weeks in a
residential mental health facility near Pueblo,
Colo., followed by six months of outpatient treat-
ment, and put on five years of probation. He will
wear a monitor so his movements can be ascer-
tained during his therapy.
Lucero also was ordered to pay a fine, surren-
der his law enforcement certificate, not contest
his firing as a deputy here and not return to
Florida or have contact with his wife and children
without court approval.. -,
We acknowledge that Lucero has menal
health issues that deserve treatment Anyone.
who uses his children as a shield during an
armed standoff with deputies has mental health
issues that deserve treatment.
But Lucero was involved in the standoff after
he violated a court injunction that forbade him
from seeing his ex-wife and children except at
designated times.
He was returned to jail earlier this year after
he contacted his wife in violation of the terms of
his bond hearing.
Assistant State District Attorney Doc Burgess
has indicated Lucero's former wife wished treat- /
ment, not jail time, for him. But it is his children,
not his wife, that concern us most.
We think it likely that anyone else arrested on
similar charges would have faced substantially
more jail time in a plea agreement with the state.
We don't think deputies who commit
crimes should receive favorable treatment In
fact, we. think law enforcement officers having
accepted the awesome rights and responsibilities
that come with putting on the badge should
be held to tougher standards for criminal mis-
deeds.
We hope Lucero has learned from his mis-,
takes and, for his sake and that of his family, gets
the help he needs. But he violated a trust not just
with his family but with the public he served. For
that, he deserved stiffer punishment.


I imagine this, you pay $150 for tickets to a concert
featuring the Eagles, and just after sitting down,
a booming voice comes over the sound system
announcing this: "May I have your attention
please, due to illness the Eagles will not be per-
forming tonight Instead, please give a warm, enthu-
siastic welcome to the Strawberry Alarm Clock!"
Livid, you rush to the nearest ticket window
demanding your money back. Who would blame
you? I mean, the Strawberry Alarm clock might
have been an OK band back in the '60s, but the
Eagles they're not after "Incense Peppermints,"
then what?
American consumers, however, and most
unknowingly, suffer a far more insidious substitu-
tion every day, and rarely say a word.
Daily, hundreds of seafood lovers sit down in
restaurants across the United States and order
meals that include shrimp: fried shrimp, boiled
shrimp, steamed shrimp, shrimp burgers, shrimp
scampi and every other concoction and combination
imagined by Forrest Gump's new best friend,
Bubba.
Their menus should include a disclaimer, at least
in my opinion, that would read: "Due to the incredi-
ble availability and rock-bottom prices of imported,
pond-raised shrimp, these faux, or fake shrimp,
have been substituted for more expensive, better
tasting American variety." For me, this disclaimer
screams, "Get the cheeseburger!"
For true shrimp enthusiasts everywhere the
above scenario is an abomination, to be sure, but it
is more than that. It undermines and threatens one
of our basic institutions here in Fernandina Beach -
our local shrimp industry.
For me, our shrimp industry is much more than
just a part of our island's economy, it's an integral
part of our quality of life. Examples: I can't imagine
a dockside sunset without several trios of shrimp
boats framing the horizon, and I certainly can't
imagine an island seafood dinner without
Fernandina shrimp.
I know, shrimp.are shrimp, right? No, there are

* So, is there anything we can do to help protect
our local shrimp.industry? Yes, we can do the fol-a
lowing:
Contact our federal and state elected repre-
sentatives and urge them to support legislation that
would prevent "dumping" of cheap, imtportedn
.,shrimp by other countries.
You might even suggest including domestic
shrimpers in the long list of those eligible for feder-.
al subsidies. Protectionist? You bet; anti-free trade?.
Sure, but consider where your federal tax dollars
are already going the U.S. Department of
Agriculture will pay Florida farmers approximately
8100 million dollars this year in direct subsidies;
approximately 8750 million since 1975. Staggering,
right? Well, how about approximately S12 million
federal going to support wheat production in
Florida! Florida wheat? How about protecting the
Florida shrimp industry instead.
Ordinarily, I'm not a big subsidies fan, but in the
case of the shrimp industry, they seem appropriate.
Encourage city officials to approve a water-
front design that is "shrimp boat friendly." City resi-
dents have expressed a desire to keep our water-
front, 1) as open to the public as possible, and 2) a
working one. Expecting owners of shrimp boats to
pay transient boat prices for dock space simply
won't work. Adequate dock space for the local

Neurons that are used most often in interact-

nerve pathways that are rarely used shrink

approved by the city.
Before you order a meal that includes shrimp
at a local restaurant, ask whether the shrimp are
local or if they're imported. If the answer is import-
ed, then encourage the owner to buy Fernandina
shrimp, and then opt for the cheeseburger.
Encourage the local shrimp festival committee
to require yes, require any organization selling
shrimp, in any form or fashion, to buy local shrimp
only. No booth selling shrimp at a festival claiming
to celebrate the birthplace of the modern shrimp
industry should be allowed to sell imported shrimp.
That's kind of like selling grits and tomato gravy at a
Columbus Day festival in New York City.
As mayor, you get to do a lot of rewarding things
and one of my most memorable was working with
Robert Lannon to find an appropriate location for
the monument recognizing Fernandina Beach as
the birthplace of the shrimp industry in the United
States.
Appropriately, we settled on its present location,
just east of the city docks at the foot of Centre
Street. He was tremendously proud of that monu-
ment, as is this city. It serves to constantly remind
us that the seafood industry, particularly the shrimp
industry, is part of our island's heritage an invalu-
able part.
Let's just hope that our children, and our chil-
dren's children, have the unique opportunity to wit-
ness those spectacular sunsets, with several trios of
shrimp boats framing the horizon. That's a part -

Research on brain structures and televi-
sion is in its infancy and continues to be pub-
lished. However we know enough now to
caution everyone to seriously control the
amount of time their televisions are on. Walk
into any house while a TV is blaring and all
eyes will automatically be drawn to it.
Television programmers depend on this and
intentionally design programs to capture and
maintain our attention without thought. In
fact, thinking gets in the way of TV watching.
Therefore in order to truly limit the negative
effects it might have on brain growth and
structure it must be shut down, especially
for anyone who has problems with learning
because of hyperactivity, inattention, impul-
sivity, and impatience. Unplug television for
a few weeks and relax. Read newspapers,
books, and magazines. Play games outside.
See what happens. You might be pleasantly

to honor county volunteers at the
Nassau County Volunteer Center's
20th annual Volunteer Awards
Luncheon. The Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center was resplendent
with red, white and blue in obser-
vance of the event's theme: "The .
Making of America Our
Volunteers."
Awards were presented by the
city of Fernandina Beach, the town
of Hilliard, the Amelia Island/
Fernandina Beach/Yulee Chamber
of Commerce, the Greater Nassau
Chamber of Commerce, the
Fernandina Beach Optimist Club,
Rayonier, Smurfit-Stone and the vol-
unteer center.,
The continued success of this
popular event can be attributed to
the businesses, civic groups,
churches, nonprofit agencies and
individuals who purchased either
tables, half tables, small business
tickets or individual tickets, as well
as the many volunteers who donat-
ed their time. talents and resources.

DID YOU KNOW?
IT IS ILLEGAL
THAT'S RIGHT ...rILLEGAL
For Funeral Homes to tie fees Ydr&.irreivices to your
purchasing a casket from them, or to charge a "Handling
Fee" for a casket purchased elsewhere.
Don't be intimidated by the "Funeral Director."'
There is a rule that is enforced by the Federal Trade
Commission called "The Funeral Rule."
memberMBER**
"The Funeral" provider may hot refuse or charge a fee to
handle a casket you bought elsewhere.
For more information on this rule: http://www.ftc.gov
**There are concerned and professional funeral industry
personnel you will, however, meet resistance with some
of those who are not. You may ask us this question:
Why buy a casket from a casket Supply Store,
and how does this work?
Answer: To save MONEY, a lot of it!
And the merchandise is delivered to a Funeral Home
of "your choice." The casket is often the single most
expensive part of a funeral. Why pay a big price tag,
when you can get a casket identical to those offered
at a funeral home for far less???
At First Coast Funeral Supply we carry a full line of

Perhaps the best way to intro-
duce Helene Scott to the part of
the world that somehow does not
yet know her is to say: "This is
Helene Scott, the woman who in
her eight lives has been a stu-
dent, a model, a USO entertainer,
creator of possibly the first
national line of maternity clothes,
the first female cruise director, a
travel writer, political activist and,
in her ninth life upcoming, a
founder of an organization for
singles over 55.
Born in Winston-Salem, N.C.,
Scott graduated from Hanes
High School and went from there
to the Traphagen School of
Design in New York, where she
studied high fashion and design.
Simultaneously, she became a
model for the John Robert
Powers Agency, at the time the
top modeling agency in New
York, and had cover photos on
both Charm Magazine and
Today's Woman.
"Then In 1943," Scott, says,
"while World War II was on and
USO troops were entertaining
servicemen in the European
Theater and the Pacific, two
nightclub owners, Monte Proser,
who owned the Copacabana, and
Lou Walters, Barbara Walters's
father and owner of the Latin
Quarter, and actor Richard
Burton were chosen to judge a
contest involving more than 800
models, singers and dancers.
From the 800, they were to
choose 15 girls over a period of
eight weeks to form a troupe,
eliminating 100 girls each
Monday," Scott remembers.
"And I was one of the 15 left
standing."
The troupe was to back up

Helene Scott stays busy today, here planting a tree, but also
planting seeds for local Democrats and now planning a singles
club for seniors.


comedian Jimmy Durante, who
was going to entertain the
troops, and in short order Stars
and Stripes began to cover the
group. As a result, Scott
appeared in "The British
American Servicemen's Can-
teen," her first and only movie.
They had sailed out of New York
Harbor in 1944, and returned to
New York a year later.
"We entertained the troops in
Italy, France and Germany,
where they were waiting to go
home to their families, and on to
the South Pacific to finish the
war with Japan," Scott says. "Bob
Hope was in-and-out three times
that year, and Mickey Rooney
and the Andrews Sisters and oth-
ers arrived twice. But V-E Day in
May 1945 brought the unforget-
table celebration," Scott says.
"Platforms were built in open
Bfieldsitnerve as-stages-wherear'
the soldiers' tents were, and
thousands of soldiers sat on the
ground to hear Durante, to listen
to the Hal McIntyre Orchestra at
dusk and later to dance with the
girls until midnight," Scott
remembers. "And the next day,
the troupe traveled in weapons
carriers and jeeps to the next
staging area," she says.
But the girls were not on their
own. "For every two girls, one
soldier was designated to carry a
weapon to protect us from
harm," Scott says.
When the troupe returned to
New York, she continued her
fashion studies, married and
when she became pregnant in
1947, discovered there were no
fashionable maternity clothes to
be had.
"In 1947, mothers-to-be stayed
home, wore larger sizes, and if
they were lucky," Scott says, "the
bridal departments in the better
department stores carried black
or navy one-piece dresses with
elastic waistlines that were hid-
den in a closet in back of the
bridal shop," she remembers.
Scott took the challenge.
She designed what she calls
"a full line of fashionable mater-
nity clothes," rented the grand
ballroom of the Hotel New
Yorker, hired comedian Abe
Burrows to entertain, showed
her complete collection in the
first maternity show "ever," and,


she says, "Helene Scott
Maternities was born," and she
promoted, styled and manufac-
tured her maternity fashions
over the next 20 years. Helene
Scott Maternities became a
national trade name, she says.
"Then, after 20 years, and
with two children in college, I
decided it was time for me to
travel the world," she says. (Her
two children are Starr, an attor-
ney in the Himalayas in India,
and Bob, a stockbroker in Aspen,
Colo. And she now has two
grandchildren.) But travel the
world she did, writing about her
adventures in a newspaper col-
umn called Helene Scott, the
Inquisitive American, which
appeared weekly in the Bergen
County, NJ. newspaper.
Scott then became the first
woman cruise director, serving.
in that capacity for many lines in
I '.nj ,., untrics, a',- 'A0:un,1 up"
writing newsletter for future""
cruise directors and their assis-
tants, suggesting events to fill the
time for all age levels.
All that done, overwith and
aside, Scott says the political bug
bit. her in 1960, when she was a
delegate to the Democratic
National Convention in
California, where JFK was nomi-
nated for president. And she has
been active in politics ever since.
Moving to Fernandina four
years ago, she says what brought
her here was that she wanted to
live "where there was no more
snow and ice but trees and sea-
sons." So having settled in, and
finding no Democratic Club here
- "I started one," she says. Her
next venture, a Senior Singles
Club for men and women over
55, is already in the space-renting
stage "if I can find a space,"
Scott says.
There is a pause. And she
says when she talks to her son,
Bob, about the "good old days"
and their exciting times, the
reception; she gets is not exactly
enthusiastic. "He reminds me,"
she says, "that time is passing.
And he says, 'Mom, at your age,
these are your good old days!' -
And I just continue to dig two
more big holes in my garden for
two new gardenia plants.
"Age is just a number. So I
just keep on going," Helene Scott
says.

MURDER Continued from 1A
stance.
The two were arrested as a
result of an undercover investiga-
tion during which a confidential
informant purchased liquid
methadone from Edwards while
being observed by members of the
sheriffs office narcotics unit
According to a sheriff's office
report, during the undercover
investigation Edwards "began to
tell the (informant) of her involve-
ment with a subject who was found
dead over the weekend."
The report said Edwards told
the informant she had given the
"subject" liquid methadone.
On May 5, days after the under-
cover investigation, deputies exe-
cuted a search warrant at Edwards
home, where they found liquid
methadone, methadone tablets,
Oxycontin, Xanax and other pills


that have not yet
S been identified.
r t BEdwards and
Brown were
A arrested at the
scene, and
Edwards' two chil-
dren ages 5 and
Brown 7 were turned
over to the state
Department of
Children and Families.
According to Florida state law, a
murder charge can result from sell-
ing a drug to someone who later
dies as a result of taking that drug.
Assistant State Attorney Granville
"Doc" Burgess said it doesn't hap-
pen frequently because "it can be
extremely difficult to trace where
the drugs came from."
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said he believes this is
the first time someone has been
charged with murder as a result of


allegedly selling drugs in Nassau
County.
Curtin was found dead in his
bedroom at approximately 3:40 p.m.
on April 23. According to police,
Curtin apparently purchased liq-
uid methadone from Edwards on
April 22.
Curtin's roommates told police
he was drinking alcohol in the
home around 10 p.m. April 22 and
he'told them he had taken the
methadone.
Curtin began to pass- out and
was last seen alive at 1:30 a.m. April
23 when he went to bed.
When one of his roommates
checked on him the following day,
he found Curtin lying in bed, pale
and not breathing. Rescue person-
nel pronounced Curtin dead at the
scene.
Seagraves said the incident is
still under investigation.

about a month ago.
Sergio and Elidia Victoria
opened their business on Eighth
Street because of the Hispanic com-
munity growing around it.
"This area, almost everyone
(Hispanics) lives here. We live here,
too," he said, explaining that the
location is convenient for people in
the neighborhood without trans-
portation.
In addition La Victoria provides
a money wiring service with two
companies that can send money to
most Latin American countries in
10 minutes.
The Victorias, who have lived
in Fernandina since 1998, also want
to provide assistance for people in
need.
"More Hispanics are coming to
the area and they need services
because of thelanguage (barrier),"
he said. "We need somebody to
help the people."
Lock Doctor Inc. will now help
people from a new site at 320 S.
Eighth St "I think its a great loca-
tion," owner Jason McCready said
about his business, formerly the
home of Courtyard Florist. The
steady traffic and close proximity to
downtown are benefits, he said.
"It works well for me,"
McCready said, describing his
service as "easy in, easy out"
because customers can drive up to
the front door. "It's all perfect. It
suits me."
McCready, in business since
1997, said he installed a new awning
and painted the building to improve
its appearance.
"(But) you've got so many
things on Eighth Street that need
impgqvgment","he said, *id s isour-
town and it (Eighth Street) should
reflect how we feel about our town."
"I personally think they need to
clean up Eighth Street," David
Sutton said. Sutton owns Island
Auto Care (formerly All-Pro) and
has been in business at 302 S.
Eighth St for almost three months.
Sutton chose his Eighth Street
location after purchasing property
west of the Shave Bridge proved
too expensive. The least expensive
uncleared commercial site Sutton
found listed at $600,000, while the
most expensive started at $1.8 mil-
lion.
Although he likes Fernandina, "I'
think we're better than what we
show."
Business at the shop, which
specializes in domestic and foreign
repairs, has been "very slow.
Extremely slow," said Sutton whose
father owns Mancil Auto Repair
Shop on Jacksonville's north side.
"As a new business, it's very
scary to see a lot of buildings for
lease and for sale," he said. Eighth
Street does not "have a lot to offer
other than restaurants. (The city)
needs something that's going to
get more traffic on Eighth Street."
Commercial growth in Yulee is
"going to take away from the city,"

Sutton said. "We have rto do some-

While Centre Street draws
tourists visually with its updated

Eighth Street needs a "facelift

"I t's been a struggle," Richd said
about remaining in business in the
plaza where she and DeShields also
own a hair salon. Poor visibility and
lack of pedestrian traffic along the
corridor have helped make it diffi-
cult to draw customers into her
stores.
But she has relied on her faith to
overcome those obstacles.
"My prayers and faith in God
have kept us here," Richo said.
"Our goal is to continue to provide
good service in a Christian atmos-
phere."

Condo conversion: Where do they go now?


AMELIA A. PRIDEMORE
For the News-Leader
Kim Elliott wants to know
where she and her dog and cat will
live in the next few months or if
she will be able to find a place for
them to rent at all.
Elliott's home, Nassau Lakes
Apartments in Yulee, was sold on
March 31, and the new owners are
in the process of turning the apart-
ments into condominiums. With
this conversion, residents in 230
rental units will now have to decide
whether to extend their lease
agreements for as long as they can
do so, buy their apartments or get
out.
The complex was purchased by
the Greenville, S.C.-based Titan
Real Estate Development Group,
with Investcorp in New York City
as an equity source. Atlanta-based
Harbor Management Inc. is the
complex's former owner.
Elliott, a three-year resident of
Nassau Lakes, said she has man-
aged to find another place to rent
but she does not know if she can
break her lease ending this sum-
mer without severe penalties. If
she is unable to make a decision by
June, she will lose the other apart-
ment.
Four-year resident Cynthia
Ossenfort said via e-mail the con-
version does not really concern
her because she is ready to buy a
home.
"What I do not know is if they
have any legal responsibility to


uphold our leases as the new prop-
erty owners, or whether or not
they will choose to do so," she said.
"In the end, what will make the
biggest impression on the com-
munity, in my opinion, is whether
we are in effect evicted on short
notice, or they will wait until our
leases are up to deny renewal. The
latter would give us time to make
plans accordingly."
Jeff Tabor, co-owner of Titan
Real Estate, said residents would
soon receive a notice of intended
conversion. According to a draft,
residents would be able to stay in
their apartments until the expira-
tion of their leases. Furthermore,
the leases may be extended. The
length of the extension would
depend on how long they have
been continuous residents of the
apartment complex. To extend
their rental agreements, they must
give the developer written notice
within 45 days of receiving the
notice.
Some residents may be able to
cancel their leases and any exten-
sion of them, according to the
draft. If leases have unexpired
terms of 180 days or less (includ-
ing extensions and renewals), res-
idents may cancel their rental
agreements with a 30-day written
notice and move. Also, they may
cancel any lease extension with a
30-day written notice.
The conversion's impact could
be felt by others in addition to
apartment residents.
With the current shortage of
rental housing in the county, losing

AMELIAA.PRIDEMORE/FOR THENEWS-LEADER
A landscaping company employee moves trees with a bulldozer as part of the extensive work
under way at Nassau Lakes Apartments prior to their conversion to condominiums.


230 rental units could aggravate
the situation, said county planner
Marshall McCrary.
McCrary said in recent years,
'the county has seen an upsurge in
increased interest in high-density
multi-family housing zones from
developers; however, the amount
of undeveloped land zoned for this
is limited. The county's current
land use density would have to be
changed to get zoning for apart-
ments.
Most of the county's high-den-
sity multi-family zones are on the
south end of Amelia Island, and
those are for high-end privately
owned condominiums, he said.


A new apartment complex
could help alleviate the situation.
McCrary said Nassau Club
Apartments on CR 107 are "well
under construction." The apart-
ments are also classified as
"affordable housing" and will have
192 units.
"This will probably not come
close to the need that's out there,"
McCrary said.
Nassau County Schools
Superintendent John Ruis said
reducing the availability of rental
housing'may have an effect on the
county's ability to attract teachers
fresh out of college. ,
Ruis estimated that 90-100 new


teachers were hired this school
year. "Young people will be renters
for the most part. It could have an
impact," Ruis said.
Nassau Lakes resident Delaney
Johns, 21, is unsure of where she
may live now, and finding another
landlord that would allow her bull-
dog mix will be difficult, she said.
She and her husband also have a
six-month-old child. The couple
moved to Nassau Lakes a year ago
after the apartment complex they
were living in at the time was con-
verted to condominiums as well.
Johns said she and her husband
are not exactly in the best position
to buy a house, especially with the
rising property values in Nassau
County.
'We're young, we have a child,
and you have to have a sizeable
deposit," she said. "It costs around

decent home."
If she were able to renew her
lease, Johns said she would stay at
Nassau Lakes. She is pleased with
the time she has spent there and
with the management.
"It's a great community," she
said. "It's kept very clean, and the
maintenance is great."
Robin and Veronica Roberts,
residents since October 2004, are
viewing the conversion more favor-
ably. The couple has a house under
construction that should be fin-
ished.in September, and they are
interested in purchasing one of the
new condominiums as an invest-
ment, Veronica Roberts said. Not
only could they profit from rent-
ing the condominiums, they would
also have a place for family visiting
from their native South Carolina
to stay.
Current residents, Tabor said,
would have the first option to buy.
Sales representatives will be avail-
able in the complex's business
office to discuss possible pur-
chases, probably in the first part of
June. The new owners' goal is not
to open sales to the public until
residents have been given the
chance to buy their apartments.
"Our loyalties lie to them.
They're already there," he said.
When the apartments were first
purchased, Tabor said, marketing
studies showed that most residents
could be able to afford to purchase
their apartments without a signif-
icant difference between payments
on their apartments as a condo-
minium as the rent they are paying
now. "We're confident that we're
not pricing them out," he said.
Nassau Lakes resident Tammy
Richards does not know if she
could find another place where she
could get inside. Richards uses a
wheelchair. Right now, she has
been searching for an apartment
complex both in and out of Nassau
County that would be accessible
to her. Generally, she said, only
newer complexes like Nassau
Lakes are wheelchair-accessible.
Richards' lease ends in July.
While she has been looking at
other apartments, she is not sure
of what she will do if she is forced
to move.
"I don't even want to think
about it," she said.

Traffic lights coordinated,



stoplights longer on AIA


EMPLOYEES COMMENDED


News-Leader

Traffic signals along A1A have
been coordinated and stoplight
times lengthened to make for safer
and more efficient travel.
The Florida Department of
Transportation recently completed
a signal re-timing project along the
section of A1A from Chester Road
to Scott Road.
"The purpose of this project
was to coordinate the traffic sig-
nals along this section of roadway
in order to improve the flow of traf-
fic by reducing stops and delay,"
said Christopher W. LeDew, assis-
tant district traffic operations engi-
neer for FDOT.
LeDew said the signals along


this stretch of A1A were not pre-
viously coordinated. "As a result, a
vehicle traveling on this section of
A1A could conceivably get stopped
at all four of the traffic signals. The
new coordinated timing plans pro-
vide a better opportunity for vehi-
cles traveling along this section of
A1A to encounter no stops or far
less stops than they did before," he
said.
The stoplights are now longer
in an effort to assure safety, LeDew
said. "Due to the concern with the
recent semi-truck crashes, our
office has decided to increase the
all-red time at the signals along
this section of A1A from the exist-
ing 1.5 seconds to 2 seconds," he
said.


The all-red time occurs when all
lanes entering an intersection have
stoplights. This occurs briefly dur-
ing the transition from stop to go
each time the lights change.
There were two logging truck
accidents at A1A and Barnwell
Road earlier this year that occurred
when the trucks failed to stop for
red lights and crashed into cars
already stopped for the lights, over-
turned and spilled their loads. No
one was seriously injured in either
wreck.
The Nassau County Traffic
Safety Team, which includes law
enforcement personnel, represen-
tatives of the paper mills and oth-
ers, urged FDOT to extend the all-
red time to improve safety.

trInics our son is sunering
from childhood depres-
sion. My goodnessThe kid
Is only 9 years old. Is It
reasonable that this could
be his problem?
DR. DOBSON: We used to believe that
depression was excluswivly an adult problem,
but that understanding is changing. Now we're
seeing sgns of sericJs despondency in children
as young as 5 years old.
Symptoms of depression in an elementary
school child may include geneni lethargy. a
lack of interest in things that used to excite him,
sleep disturbances, chewed fingernals. loss of
appetite and violent emotional outburst. Other
common reactions are complaints of stomach
pain and low tolerance to frustration of any
kind.
If depression is a problem for your child.
It is symptomatic of Eomething else chat Is
bothering him. Help him verbalize feelings.Try
to anticpate the explartion for sadness and
lead the youngster into conversations that pro-
vide an opportunity to ventilate. Make yourself
available to listen,without udging or belittling
the feelings expressed Simply being under-
stood is soothing for children and adults alike.
If the symptoms are severe or if they list
more than two weeks, I urge you to t3ke the
advice of the school psychologist, and seek
other professional help for your son. Prilonged
depression can be destructive for human beings


of any age; and it is especially dangerous to chil-
dren.
QUESTION: How would you go
about telling a child he or she is adopt-
ed, and when should that disclosure
occur?
DR. DOBSON: First, begin talking to
your toddlers about their adoption before they
can understand the meaning of the words.That
way there will never be a moment when dis-
closure is necessary To learr, of adoption from
a neighbor or another family member can be
an awful shock to an Individual. Don't risk the
devasmnon of a later discovery by failing to take
the sting ouc of the Issue in babyhood
Second, celebral two birthdays with equal
gusto each year: the anniversary of her birth,
and the anniversary of the day she became
your daughter.That is a handy mechanism by
which the fact of adoption can be introduced.
It also provides a way to equalize the status of
siblings Biological children have a psychologi-
cal advantage,which they sometimes lord over
their adopted brother or sister. That one-
upmanship is neutralized somewhat when the
adopted child gets a second birthday.
Third, present the adoptive event as a


about how badly you and your wit wanted a
baby to hold even though it looked like you
wouldn't getto raise another boy or girl.Then
describe how the news came that "you had
arrived," and how the whole family celebrated
and cheered. Let your child know your delight
when you first saw him lying In a crib.and how
cute he looked In his blue blanket, etcTell him
that his adoption was one of the happiest days
of your life, and how you raced to the telephone
to call all your friends and family members to
share the fantastic news. (Again. I'm assuming
that these details are true.)
This is the pointThe child's interpretation
of the adoptive event is almost totally depend-
enr on the manner In which It Is conveyed
during the early years. Most certainly, one does
not want to approach the subject sadly, admit-
ting reluctantly that a dark and troublesome
secret must now be confessed.
Fourth, when the foundation has been laid
and the Issue Is defused, forget it. Don't con-
stanty remind the child of his uniqueness to the
point of foolishness. Mention the matter when
it Is appropriate, but don't reveal anxiety or ten-
sion by constantly throwing adoption In the
child's face.Youngsters are amazingly perceptive
at "reading" these thinly disguised attitudes.
I believe it is possible., by following these
commonsemse suggestions,to raise an adopt-
ed child without psychological trauma or per-
sonal insult.

Meth arrests
A 31-year-old Yulee man was
arrested May 4 for attempted man-
ufacture of methamphetamines -
his second arrest on such a charge
in the past 15 months.
William Heath Jones, 816 Ionia

Lifeguard stand stolen
A chainsaw and a lifeguard
stand were reported missing in
Fernandina Beach on Saturday.
A man told police he believes
potential renters may have taken a
chainsaw worth approximately
$300 from his home. The victim'
said he rents the residence
through a rental agency and
prospective renters are sometimes
given a key to look through the
home.
The victim said he last saw the
chainsaw in a closet in the home
on May 5.
The lifeguard stand reported
stolen from Main Beach was also
worth $300.
According to Fernandina
Beach police, the stand was report-
ed missing by one of the lifeguards
shortly after he arrived at the
beach for work that morning.
Also reported stolen last week
was a bag of jewelry valued at
almost $5,000. The jewelry went
missing from the room of a local
resort on May 5.

Deputy pleads not guilty



to alleged phone scam


News-Leader


A Nassau County Sheriff's lieu-
tenant has pleaded not guilty to
charges that he fraudulently bought
and resold thousands of cell phones
at a government discount.
Clarence "Jake" Card, 46, plead-
ed not guilty Thursday to charges
of schemes to defraud, grand theft
and fraudulent claim of sales tax.
Card was charged in March and
fired from the force.
If convicted, he faces up to 35
years in prison, the maximum sen-
tence possible on the charges
against him.
Card has been employed by the
sheriff's office since 1995 in the
administrative section of the
Nassau County Jail, where he was
responsible for operational and
daily activities. He is out of jail on
$50,002 bond.
It was alleged that over the last


two years Card
used his position
to obtain a gov-
a ernment account
with Nextel
Communications,
purchasing 14,000
cellular phones at
Card prices ranging
from 99 cents to
$5 per phone.
Card then allegedly resold the
phones at a markup.
"He actually had contacted an
individual distributor of cell phones
throughout the U.S. He was sell-
ing them from $35 to $65 apiece,"
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said in
March.
"The actual total loss to the com-
pany is $1.8 million if you were to
buy them off the shelves" for up
to $450 for a phone, Seagraves said.
About 2,000 of the phones have
been recovered, he said.


Card's activities came to light
in November when the sheriff's
office received a surprising bill
from Nextel, Seagraves said.
"When we had an outstanding bill
of $170,000, that became a curios-
ity. They have never sold 14,000
phones over a two-year period to
any law enforcement agency.
Fourteen thousand phones thafs
kind of shocking."
"Nextel asked us if Card had
authorization to be the one pur-
chasing for the sheriff's office. He
was not in a position to do pur-
chasing for the sheriff's office.
Nextel Communications advised
that Card would not have been
allowed to purchase either that
quantity of phones nor receive such
a discount."
The bulk of the purchasing was
done after April 2004, Seagraves
said. The phones were shipped to
two different addresses, he said.


Ex-coach pleads not guilty


SHANNON MALCOM
Nedws-Leader
Drew Sparkman, a former coach
for Yulee Little League, pleaded not
guilty to sexual battery on May 5.
Sparkman, 19, and another

the men raped them, separately, in
a wooded area near Pages Dairy

university of Florida
head football coach
Urban Meyer is set
to make a ton of
money during his initial seven-
year contract, however, most
of the dough will come from
outside sources. Meyer is set
to make $225,000 for coaching
in 2005, with annual increases
of $7,000. But the brunt of his
money, not unlike many other
coaches, will come from his
apparel contract ($500,000
annually), television and radio
appearances ($300,000 annual-
ly) and speaking engagements
($200,000 annually).
Of course, the latter three
figures become a moot point if

apparently went lost on Ron

I had a chance to go to

the music, fireworks, video

amazing these guys can con-
centrate to do their jobs.
With that said, Atlanta is
doing its job well and is slowly
reclaiming its annual reign
over the National League East.
The Braves' current starting
pitching rotation might be
their best ever, including the
formidable '90s threesome of
John Smoltz, Greg Maddux

seems to be a shutdown closer
away from challenging for
another NL Championship

Pirate grapplers bid fond

When Mike Emanuel leaves Fernandina

he will leave behind a legacy.

at Fernandina Beach High School 18 seasons
ago, Emanuel steered the Pirate grapplers to
10 consecutive district titles from 1992-2001,
and along the way, dozens qualified beyond
the district level with six

Lovejoy wins Wednesday blitz


GIRLS ON THE RUN


With the departure of some northern friends,
the Fernandina Beach Men's Golf Association blitz
field has a tendency to dwindle down to include
only permanent residents of the island. On
Wednesday, 68 players took part in the blitz with
Mike Lovejoy taking individual honors with an 82,
good for plus 9 points. Four players shared second
at plus 7 Craig Flowers (81), Larry Brauda (81),"
Fred Boatright (79) and Jack Harrison (79).
First-place team honors went to the foursome of
Lovejoy, Woody Kallas (84, plus 4), Buddy Riddle
(94, plus 3), and Ray Huskey (88, even) for a net
plus 16.
The team of Allen Elefterion (80, plus 4), Dan
Cisson (82, plus 1), Tom Shave (74, plus 6) and
Rich Vredenburgh (90, minus 2) finished at plus 9
for second place.
There was a tie for third at plus 5 between the
teams of Brauda, P.W. Nobles (84, plus 6), Lynn
Satterwhite (88, plus 3), Charles Kicklighter (96,
minus 7) and Stan Miller (87, plus 3), Mike Manis
(87, plus 2), Bruce Hillis (97, minus 1), Price Poole
(73, plus 1).
Whether it was one of those days or the fact that
the weather didn't look too promising, just 49 play-
ers came out to play in the blitz on Friday.
Individual honors went to Chris Kennett with a 78,
good for plus 8 points. Three players shared sec-
ond at plus 5 Tim Goodrich (78), Ernie Locke
(80) and Larry Brauda (81).
Scoring wasn't quite as low as on Wednesday as
the team of Bob Riley (84, plus 1), Roger Arsenault
(100, plus 2), Ray Black (103, even) and Dave
Mason (82, plus 3) took first place with a plus 6.
Locke's plus 5 helped carry his teammate Jim
White (93, plus 2), Ron Dandurand (86, even) and.

More than 70 girls from Girls on the Run of
Northeast Florida completed their big 5K race
on April 30. Girls ages 8-12 from teams in
Ponte Vedra, Orange Park, Fernandina Beach
and Jacksonville came together and ran the
BeachFest 5K at Jacksonville Beach, which
was their end-of-the-season run. These girls
successfully participated in the Girls on the
Run program for 10 weeks this spring where
they trained for this event while also learning
important healthy life skills and building their
self-esteem. Lessons combined running with
important topics such as liking who you are,
respecting your bodies, eating nutritiously, not
doing drugs, handling peer pressure, cooper-
ating and listening and understanding media ,
influences. Each season ends with a 5K run
where their hard work pays off and girls gain
a powerful sense of accomplishment when
they cross that finish line. Pictured above,

May 14. 1954 The United States Golf
Association (USGA) took on an undertak-
ing for the most famous house in the
country. In order to give President Dwight
D. Eisenhower an opportunity to practice,
the USGA converted the South Lawn of
the White House. What the USGA did
was to make a putting green for the then-
President Eisenhower and it has been a
part of the White House ever since.


A One of the common issues the
amateur golfer has that causes
a loss of power in the golf swing
i, s a reverse pivot A reverse
pivot occurs when the weight of
the golfer moves to their front
foot during the backswing,
which causes the spine to lilt in
the wrong direction. In trying to
keep your head still, you prevent a good shoul-
der turn from happening as well as the proper
weight shiftto the back foot. In order to correct
a reverse pivot problem, here are a couple of
suggestions. The most important key is to
make sure that your hips stay still on your back-
swing. You have to imagine that you are in a
drum and your hips do not touch either side of
the drum on the backswing. The second piece
of advice is to get your sternum directly over
your back foot at the top of the backswing to
ensure the proper weight distribution.

EMANUEL Continued from 1B
Emanuel said he has forged friendships since mov-
ing to Fernandina Beach.
"I've met people I now consider to be family," he
said. "You couldn't ask for a better place to bring up
kids."
Emanuel's first wrestling team at FBHS was just 12
members strong, but the program quickly flourished
and earned respect in Northeast Florida. Emanuel was
a magnet for boys who might not have participated in
a sport without his encouragement.
"Some were not given the physical abilities as oth-
ers," he said. "We would work on their God-given tal-
ents."


"I can't say enough about him," said John Crow,
whose son John David, was a four-year wrestler and
graduate in 1992. "Not only what he did for my child
but what he has done for those that probably would
not have a chance without his influence. They're pro-
ductive citizens now. If it hadn't been for him, they
would have ended up in jail.
"It's going to be like a brother moving away when
he leaves. He has contributed so much to this com-
munity by influencing young people.
"John David is president of the (Fernandina Beach)
Optimists Club and the (Pirate wrestling)' Booster
Club and he is that because of Coach E, I believe.
"This area is going to sorely miss him when he's
gone. He's another one we've used up. If we had been


any help to him, he could have lasted another couple
of years.
"Inspirational, to everybody. I wish I had whatev-
er he has. The charm, charisma, whatever it is that
attracts young people. He's the old-style coach," said
Crow.
"Of everybody I encountered growing up, my
coaches had the most influence on me. He's been a
tremendous, positive influence for the young people
of this area. He sets rules and guidelines and expects
them to follow that and they respect that. We're going
to miss him."
"His wrestling program is lmknown for its enthusiasm
and energy and that is a reflection of the coach," said
Ken Roland, FBHS athletic director. "Coach E's career


has been one that is not only known for developing
quality athletes but in developing quality citizens.
"When I see wrestling alumni return to matches,
I see young men with a passion for their sport. Coach
E's passion for wrestling was passed on to them and
now they are coming back to share it with younger ath-
letes. I think that is a great legacy for an outstanding
coach."
His former wrestlers will have the opportunity to
thank him in person. All alumni are invited to a ban-
quet Saturday night in Jacksonville. It will be held at
7 p.m. at the Oceanway Assembly of God, 12240 Sago
Ave. West, Jacksonville.

Big'hoo at blue



water tourney


I t was literally blowing a gale
Thursday with seas running
to 10 feet well offshore. It
looked like "Old Man
Weather" was going to delay the
annual Amelia Island Blue Water
Tournament, but not if anxious
fishermen could help it.
"Looks like the weather is
going to break," Capt. Allen Mills
said. '"The seas are predicted to
lay down Friday evening. We will
make a decision at our captains
meeting (Friday)."
As it turned out, 10 anxious
fishing teams signed up for the
popular blue water fishing tour-
nament and agreed that the
weather would be suitable for
fishing during the tournament
day. Weather predictions called
for calm winds Friday evening
and a light westerly wind on
Saturday.
"There definitely was a big
swell from the storm, but we did
enjoy a smooth ride out to the
ledge," Dwight Griffis said. "Just
after putting out our lures and
trolling out into deep water, a big
blue marlin struck one of our
large plastic lures. We had the
fish on for a short period of time
when the hook pulled free. I
guarantee you, that was a big
fish!"
Meanwhile the nearby sport
fishing boat, "Hunker Down,"
was hooked up with a beautiful
sailfish.
"We had also just put out our
blue water lures when a nice sail-
fish took one of our outrigger
baits," Doug Gies said. "The sail
made several nice jumps and was
soon photographed and released
at 7:54 a.m."
Tournament rules require
that all billfish have to be
brought up to the boat and then
photographed.
Minutes later, the "Miss
Pamela" a beautiful brand new
Pro Line sport fishing boat, also
hooked up with a nice sailfish.
The sail was also photographed
and released at boat side at 8:25
a.m. for second-place honors.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission today
approved a rule designed to pre-
vent overcapitalization of the
commercial blue crab fishery by
managing the number of partici-
pants in the fishery. The rule,
recommended by FWC's Blue
Crab Advisory Board, establish-
es a blue crab limited entry
endorsement program that limits
the total number of commercial
blue crab fishermen and allows

each qualified fisherman to use
up to an equal number of traps.
The new rules: Establish a
hard crab endorsement and a
soft crab endorsement, which
can be associated with either an
individual or vessel saltwater
products license; establish quali-
fying and re-qualifying criteria;
require trap tags and establish
tag ordering criteria and a
replacement tag program. The
proposed annual fee for trap tags
is 50 cents.per tag; establish an
appeals board and criteria by -
which non-qualifying blue crab
fishers could be allocated traps;
establish the Blue Crab Advisory
Board by rule and set criteria for
appointment to the board; pro-
hibit the leasing or renting of
endorsements, tags or traps, and
establish endorsement holder
responsibilities.
The rule also specifies that
blue crab endorsements will be
transferable, and in order for a
person to enter the fishery, the
person must buy the endorse-
ment and trap tags as a package
from someone who is leaving the
fishery. The person must also
work no fewer than 14 days fish-
ing for blue crab on the endorse-
ment holder's vessel.
In order to qualify for a hard
crab endorsement, the rule
requires a minimum of 500

pounds of blue crab landings to
have been reported on any one
of a fishing entity's SPLs during
one of three qualifying license
years (2000-1, 2001-2, 2002-3). An
entity may endorse multiple
SPLs; however, any additional
SPL requires a minimum of 7,500
pounds of blue crab landings to
qualify. The proposed cost of this
endorsement fee is $125 (in-
cludes a $25 trap retrieval fee).
Each hard crab endorsement
entitles the owner to fish up to
600 blue crab traps and an addi-
tional 400 traps offshore in the
Gulf of Mexico, per endorsed
SPL. A total of 150 soft crabs per
endorsed SPL may be landed
daily as bycatch. Fishermen can
maintain as many as three shed-
ding tanks without possessing a
soft crab endorsement.
In order to qualify for a soft
crab endorsement, the rule
requires a minimum of 750 soft
shell (also called peeler) crabs to
have been reported on any one
of a fishing entity's SPL during
one of three qualifying license
years (2000-01, 2001-02, 2002-03).
An entity may endorse one addi-
tional SPL; however, the addition-
al SPL requires a minimum of
2,500 soft shell crabs to have
been reported in order to qualify.
The proposed cost of this
endorsement fee is $250 (in-
cludes a $25 trap retrieval fee).
The soft crab endorsement
allows up to 400 peeler traps to
be fished. Entities with more
than one-qualifying SPL are enti-
tled to receive up to 250 addition-
al traps with the additional
endorsed SPL. The soft crab
endorsement also allows the
holder to operate a blue crab
shedding facility with greater
than three shedding tanks.
The proposed endorsement
and trap tag fees must be
approved by the 2006 Florida
Legislature before the new FWC
blue crab rules can be fully
implemented for the 2006-7
license year.

Smell the coffee stu(


W e do wake up and
smell the coffee. Big
Guy and I like our
caffeine. It is a
sacred ritual that is an essential
part of our daily routine.
We are picky about our coffee.
We buy freshly roasted beans. We
use a coffee grinder and savor
the intoxicating aroma of the
newly ground beans. As the
water burbles through our coffee
maker, we wait impatiently for
our first cups. I add Half and Half
and Big Guy uses pink envelope
powder. The day starts with dogs
out and the daily newspapers in.
. Then back to bed with two dogs,
three papers and our morning
elixir freshly brewed coffee.

beans each morning and are par-
tial to hazelnut. Flavor choices
and blends are endlessnand you
can find a variety at one of our
fine coffee shops or grocery
stores.
The drinking of coffee goes
back more than a thousand years.
On the shores of the Red Sea in
.the Horn of Africa coffee was
originally considered a food. It
was mixed with fat rolled into
small balls and given to warriors
preparing for battle. Around the
year 1000 Ethiopians fermented
the coffee in water. It was the
Arabians who are credited with
making it the hot drink we enjoy
today.
We are blessed with many fine
coffee shops on the island. A new
coffee shop has opened just off-


island, joining the popular ones
we now enjoy.
Barbara and Gil Johnston have
opened Latitudes, a coffee and
tea shop on A1A next to Lowe's.
Stop and see their shiny red cof-
fee bean roaster and sample their
wide selection of coffees and
teas.
Some worry that too much
coffee can be bad for you. It looks
like it is not only not bad for you,
it is good for you. And, the more
you drink the better it is. Want a
drug that could lower your risk of
diabetes, Parkinson's disease and
colon cancer? The news gets bet-
ter, there is some evidence that
coffee may help manage asthma
and even control attacks when
medication is unavailable, stop a
headache, boost mood and even


prevent cavities.
There is actually an Institute
of Coffees at Vanderbilt
University and their studies con-
tinue to indicate that coffee is far
more healthful than it is harmful.
Several studies indicate that
often-maligned coffee may be
considered a health food. In
recent decades, some 19,000
studies have been done examin-
ing coffee's impact on health.
More than 108 million Americans
start their day with a hot cup of
coffee and many continue sipping
through the day.
So no more worry about too
much coffee. Remember it is
good for you. Probably.

Three Nassau County students were recognized at a Northeast Florida Juvenile Justice
Recognition Luncheon held at Camp Blanding on March 18.


'Juvenile Justice efforts recognized


The Northeast Florida Juvenile
Justice Recognition Luncheon was
held at Camp Blanding on March
18. Three Nassau County youth
were recognized and received
awards for their, efforts in
"Restoring Justice."
Megan Hoobler is a 17-year-old
senior graduating from Hilliard
Middle-Senior High School where
she is senior class president. Due
to a pilot grant from the
Department of Juvenile Justice for
Teen Courts, Hoobler will be pur-
suing studies in law at UNF and at
Florida State. She has been a Teen
Court volunteer since 1999. As a


young prosecutor she handled 75
first-time offender cases. She has
been a strong youth proponent of
implementing restorative justice
standards within the court sen-
tencing procedures.
Andrew Swaringen is a senior at
Fernandina Beach High School.
He had his ups and downs along
the way. Due to some poor choic-
es, he was sent to Hastings Youth
Academy. He did exceptionally well
there and completed the program
as one of its best students.
Swaringen is now an active mem-
ber of his church and has aspira-
tions to join the military. He has


been involved in ROTC at
school for four years and is an
ensign.
Garrett Waters is a senior at
FBHS. He was making poor choic-
es, had no self-esteem and felt as if
he could not do anything right.
Waters completed the STEP pro-
gram at Hurricane Island and
returned more assured and confi-
dent. His attitude has improved
five thousand times, he is more
mature and is now a role model
for his younger siblings. Waters
started a Senior Baseball League
on his own this year and has been
playing ball for 12 years.
