OK new gas tax


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader


Nassau County will collect an
additional nickel gasoline tax effec-
tive Jan. 1.
Following a lengthy public hear-
ing Monday, the Nassau County
Commission voted 4-1 to adopt an
ordinance to add a 5-cent tax onto
every gallon of gasoline sold in


Nassau County.
Commission Chair Ansley
Acree and commissioners Tom
Branan, Jim B. Higginbotham and
Floyd Vanzant approved the ordi-
nance, which provided the "super-
majority" necessary for adoption.
Commissioner Marianne
Marshall cast the dissenting vote.
Commissioners said the gas tax
is a necessary element in County


Administrator Mike Mahaney's
attempt to solve transportation
problems facing Nassau County.
Mahaney's plan is to use gas tax
revenues to fund county road
improvements, while using devel-
oper's agreements, impact fees and
state funding to pay for new roads.
He projects that revenues from

FIRE DESTROYS YULEE HOME


Ronda Register and

last week after her
Clyde Street home
was destroyed by an
electrical fire.
Firefighters were
able to extinguish
the blaze minutes
after arriving on the
scene, and no one
was injured in the
incident. No one
was home when the
fire broke out
around 1 p.m. on
Thursday. "I don't
know what I'm
going to do."
Register said, quiet-
ly crying as neigh-
bors hugged her. "I

rates


to rise?

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Utility rates may be going up
for some Nassau County residents.
Nassau County Commissioners
approved a contract for a 10-year
water and sewer capital improve-
ment plan June 8, which will include
a cost-rate study for the county-
owned Nassau-Amelia-Utilities.
D During his presentation to the
commission, Nassau-Amelia direc-
tor Doug Hewett said the study will
likely find that rising operating
costs will need to be covered by
raising current rates.
"Rates will at some point have to
be increased," Hewett said. "With
the price of fuel increasing, chlorine
increasing and the cost of opera-
tions increasing, ultimately the con-
sumer has to pay."
The commission unanimously
approved a $125,000 contract with
PBS&J to complete several stud-
ies of utility use and compile the
county's plan. Elements of the
study will be used to determine
what the county's rates and charges
should be to cover expenses for
capital projects such as facility
expansion.
Completing the plan is also a
required condition in the waste-
water operating permit the county
received from the state in 2004.
Hewett said his preliminary
review of surrounding areas
showed Nassau-Amelia's rates to
be "well below average," and in a
memo to the commission said he
feels the study will likely find a
need for "incremental rate increas-
es."
He said Monday that Nassau-
Amelia's last rate hike was a 5 per-

Every day, Hughette Powell
takes her daily walk armed with a
spray bottle of ammonia and a
stick.
The Yulee resident says she
needs the protection from the dogs
that roam her neighborhood
unleashed and unwatched.
"I walk two and a half miles
every day," she said. "Today,. two
dogs chased after me, usually there
are three ... but once I show them
the ammonia and the stick, they're
not going to come any closer."
It's illegal in Nassau County for
pet owners to allow their dogs to
wander unsupervised. A county
ordinance states that all animals
must be kept under restraint, with
restraint being defined as "a leash

According to Powell and her

Dump spoils their

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Residents of Ian Drive and
Avery Road want to know why peo-
ple use their neighborhood as, a
trash dump.
Lying along a swath of dirt road
that connects Avery with Ian Drive,
old carpet, appliances, bricks, book
shelves, rusted barrels and wall-
paper are just a few of the items
thrown into a ditch.
Recently, dozens of packages of
spoiled meat were added to the
pile. This not only created a nau-


seating smell for the residents, but
also added a large family of vul-
tures lurking in their trees.
Ironically, all of this lies direct-
ly under a "No Dumping" sign. But
that doesn't deter the trucks resi-
dents say speed down one road,
throw out their trash and exit out of
the other road before anyone has
time to see them much less stop
them.
For some people, this neigh-
borhood is a quick, cheap and ille-
gal way to avoid a trip to the coun-

News-Leader

In spite of current security
concerns, the number of
Americans traveling abroad -
especially women traveling alone
either for business or pleasure,
increases more each day. And
women traveling alone can be
more vulnerable to problems in
certain cultures. If you are travel-
ing out of the country, be sure to
research the customs of your
designation, such as acceptable
dress codes, etiquette, etc.
Behavior that is easily tolerated
in America may not be accept-
able elsewhere. Many exciting
and exotic destinations may have
very conservative views about
women. We may not agree with
all of it, but that's the way it is.
Some of the following tips,
especially on safety, are just as
applicable to domestic travel.
Passports and visas: Long
before you plan to travel, make
sure you have the right travel
documents and visas for your
destinations, and that you pass-
port is still valid if it is not a new
one.
Make an effort to learn
about the locations you plan to
visit: their culture, politics, and
any problems that might be

any conditions, such as pregnan-
cy, that could develop complica-
tions. He may suggest some spe-
cial precautions for you to follow.
Always carry prescriptions
in their labeled containers, as
many countries have strict narco-
trafficking laws and might be
suspicious of pills in unlabeled
containers.
And be sure, whether travel-
ing in our country or another, to
have more than enough medica-
tions to last the duration of the
trip. When I fly, I always pack
vital medications in a carry-on or
purse as well as in checked lug-
gage, in case one or the other is
lost or stolen.
Even on short domestic
trips, stay alert and aware of your
surroundings, and display confi-
dence and control. Carry a purse
with a shoulder strap, with your
hand around the strap. Handbags
are easier for a thief to grab.
Don't announce that you are
traveling alone! You might want
to wear a wedding band, even if
you are single. If you think you
are being followed, step into a
store or other safe place and wait
to see if the person has passed
by.
Ask for directions before
you set out If you get lost, don't
be afraid to ask for help, but


choose a woman, hotel staff
member, store owner or another
such person.
If staying at a hotel, choose
one where security is good, and
doors and windows have secure
locks. Always use your peephole
or chain lock and common sense
about opening your door to
strangers. If you feel uncomfort-
able about going or coming
from a parking lot to your
room at night, call the inn's secu-
rity guard and ask him to escort
you.
Dress conservatively, espe-
cially in foreign countries.
Clothes do make a statement,
and clothing that may be inter-
preted as provocative in our
country or even offensive in
another country can single you
out for unwanted attention or
even physical violence..
It's easy to adopt an "I know
bad things happen but it won't

cent across-the-board increase
when the county purchased the
company from Florida Water in
2003.
It currently serves about 3,000
homes and businesses in unin-
corporated areas of Amelia Island
and Nassau County.
Hewett said the company is
able to pay operating costs using
the current rate schedule, but
would need to increase service
rates to pay for capital improve-
ment projects like expanding the
sewer treatment plant.
"We'd have a hard time doing
that the way it is now," he said.
"We're doing OK, but we're not
making the money that's needed to
make upgrades."
Currently, Nassau-Amelia
charges $1.13 per thousand gal-
lons of water use. Its sewer rate is
$3.37 per 1,000 gallons for resi-'
dential users using less than 6,000
gallons. Commercial users are
charged $4.04 per 1,000 gallons.
These-rates are well below sur-


rounding counties, said Hewett.
"It's really low," he said. "St.
Johns and JEA, everyone else is
way over us."
Also at the June 8 meeting:
The commission denied
Florida Power & light its appeal of
a February finding by the risk
management review committee.
The dispute surrounds a $2,800
bill for damage to an underground
power cable a county road and
bridges crew struck while cleaning
a ditch on Spring Lake Drive in
2004.
Florida Power representative
Charlene Watts said the county
did not provide 48 hours' notice
before digging, which she said was
required and would have avoided
the accident However, the coun-
ty's risk management review com-
mittee voted to deny the claim in
February because it found the
cable was not buried at the
required depth.
During discussion Monday,
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney was adamant that the
county should dispute the claim.


The crew was scraping less
than six inches deep, he said, and
wasn't required to contact any
other utilities. If the cable was
buried properly, he said, it would
never have been struck.
"My position is it was not
buried properly," Mahaney said.
"If it's less than six inches we don't
call for locates."
The commission unanimously
approved a motion by Tom Branan
to uphold the risk management
board's decision.
The county is inching closer
to purchasing long-anticipated
communications equipment for
Nassau County Fire-Rescue and
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office.
The commission unanimously
approved a motion to allow its con-
sultant to enter into negotiations
with Viacom and Motorola to price
their proposed systems, which
Mahaney estimated would cost
about $2.5 million. The county is
still considering different grant
options to help fund the project

Fla. Medicaid


put on a diet


A public health care
agency that con-
sumes state tax dol-
lars like an 800-pound
gorilla devouring bananas is
going on a more healthy diet.
Florida lawmakers are pre-
scribing a leaner budget for
Medicaid, a wasteful and costly
yet necessary division of
state government. It is an ambi-
tious step to take. And one to be
closely watched by other states.
Within the newly adopted
budget, legislators have set up a
pilot program for Medicaid
reform that will be tried in sev-
eral parts of the state, including
Nassau County. Under the pro-
gram, greater controls and
accountability will be placed on
a select group of service
providers.
In the past, Medicaid
providers were too numerous to
count, or control, and the vast
number fostered a system rid-
dled with fraud. Thus, there
was little accountability on the
providers as well as the
patients.
"It is a fraud fest," says state
Rep. Aaron Bean.
This will change if the pilot
program proves successful.
Instead of having 80,000
Medicaid providers around the
state, a few will be chosen for
each county. These providers
will oversee the patient care,
much like a private HMO. The
provider will create its own
medical network to service
patient needs.
This way the system will be
more manageable and regulat-
ed, Bean feels. Bean is the rep-
resentative for Nassau County,
and helped spearhead the push
toward Medicaid reform
through his high-level commit-
tee roles in Tallahassee.
Of the $15 billion spent last
year on Medicaid by the state,
about 10 percent was suspected
to be on fraudulent claims.
Over the past decade, Medicaid
costs have grown by about 13
percent per year in Florida.
Public health-care costs are
swamping all states, not just
SFlorida.
Bean feel-s the Medicaid ,y\-
ternm is "broken," since it encour-
ages needy patients to abuse


free med-
ical servic-
es by going
to the
l emergency
room for a
runny
nose, for
instance. It
also dis-
Steve courage
Nicklas preventive
care,
."' whereby
STEVE'S patients
MARET such as a

PLACE mother
take pre-
cautions against complications.
In the new system, patients
would have a choice of
providers. Also, the selected
providers would compete for
the Medicaid dollars, so this
should suppress costs. Also,
claims will be capped for most
patients, depending on what
types of health complications
they face.
For one, Shands Medical
Center in Jacksonville is consid-
ering its own Medicaid net-
work. Gov. Jeb Bush appeared
at Shands in publicizing the
new pilot program. The pro-
gram must be blessed by the
federal government, which pays
the majority of Medicaid costs
for the states.
Once the federal govern-
ment signs off, state legislators
will likely reconvene for a spe-
cial session to put the final
touches in place. The pilot pro-
gram would be offered in the
greater-Jacksonville area, as
well as in Broward County,
within the next 18 months.
Bean says there is
apprehension on the parts of
some. Medicaid has been a
problematic issue that must be
addressed, though few states
have been successful at finding
answers. He, however, is excit-
ed about the opportunity to
showcase the new system in his
district
"We don't only have the state
watching," Bean says. "We have;
the nation watching."

adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

DID YOU KNOW?
IT IS ILLEGAL
THAT'S RIGHT ... ILLEGAL
For Funeral Homes to tie fees for their services 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."
***REMEMBER***
"The Funeral" provider may not 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
"Your Loved One's" needs in our "Showroom."

Gator Club co-founder


pledges $1.4 million


It's been said that a quality col-
lege experience stays with you
throughout life. Amelia Island res-
ident and University of Florida
alumnus Bernard Berkman attests
to that and recently showed his
appreciation to UF by making a
major pledge to the university.
Berkman, a 1960 graduate of
UF's Warrington College of
Business, has pledged a planned
gift valued* at $1.4 million to
UF's Fisher School of Accounting
to establish the Bernard H.
Berkman Accounting Enrichment
Fund. Income generated from the
fund will support teaching,
research and programs in the
school.
"Any success I have attained in
my professional career I attribute
to the education I received at the
University of Florida," Berkman
said in a press release. "Support-
ing UF's accounting program is
just one way I felt I could express
my appreciation and help
provide for students following the
same path I followed in my
career."
After 31 years with the account-
ing firm of Deloitte and Touche,
followed by eight years with


Collective Bancorp, Berkman
retired in 1999 from the account-
ing field, but his passion and
involvement with UF remains
strong.
He's a charter member of the
UF Alumni Association and co-
founded the Nassau County Gator
Club in 2004, which now has 174
members.
"Mr. Berkman's gift will pro-
vide critical resources for the
school as it strives for program-
matic excellence, "said Joel S.
Demski, associate dean of the
Warrington College of Business
and director of the Fisher School.
"Affirmations, such as Mr.
Berkman's, are what sustain the
school, the college and the uni-
versity in its commitment to aca-
demic leadership in its role as the
state's flagship university."
UF's Fisher School of
Accounting was established in
1977 as a separate school within
the College of Business
Administra-tion by the Florida
Board of Regents and was
endowed in 1985 through the gen-
erosity of alumnus Frederick E.
Fisher and renamed the Fisher
School of Accounting.

GOP and taxes
As chairman of the Nassau
County Republican Party I would
like to answer a complaint on how
I addressed the gas tax issue
("GOP chief opposes gas tax," June
10). My response was personal con-
cerning how I feel, yet I also have
to respond to the issue as a leader
in the Republican Party. If you go to
our new website (www.nassau
gop.org), you will see a list of arti-
cles that you can view. Articles such
as "I am a Republican Because"
and "Republican vs. Democrat, a
Huge Difference." I must remind
you to please pay attention to sec-
tions dealing with taxes and spend-
ing.
My belief is that we need to
make sure that this is not just a
Band-Aid solution for what may be
many more issues to follow. In
other words, if there has to be a
tax, then we need to find a way to
include other issues instead of
imposing new taxes for each issue.
We cannot tax our way out of trou-
ble. Somewhere you have to take
the bull by the horns and wrestle
him down. The financial problems
of this county can be wrestled
down. The majority of the people of
this county who pay taxes should
be able to keep more of what they
earn. New homes, businesses and
traffic come with growth, and ways
of dealing with these problems can
be found other than placing the
burden directly on the established
,residents and businesses.
These are Republican views and
as the party representative, I cannot
compromise those views, even if'
they conflict with other leaders or
former leaders of the Republican


Party. I do believe that with hard
work, a lot of restraints and sound
judgment, solutions can be found.
Once again, I must state that if
there is to be an increase in taxes,
let's get all the issues in one batch
and not tax one issue, then anoth-
er, then another, etc.

Fine-tuned response
Re: June 8 article by Steve
Nicklas about Nassau County tax
cut. He stated, 'The emergency
radio system is apparently so out-
dated and ineffective that it sounds
and works more like ham radio
than a fine-tuned response system."
It is so great to see that Steve does
his homework. Amateur Radio
(HAM) provides more public and
emergency communication serv-
ices as the most effective and "fine-.
ly tuned response system" in the
world. HAM radio speaks for itself
and it is very easy to research its
history and services. I would rec-
ommend that Steve visit
www.arrl.org. I think he will enjoy
the experience and may even
become a ham.

Puppy in the window
The fact that Petland sells pup-
pies has been brought to our atten-
tion, and we are deeply saddened
by this.
Before you "buy" that cute
puppy in the window, we urge you
to ask the following questions:
1. Where does Petland get their
puppies from? When we asked, we


were told the Hunte Corp. buys
them from reliable breeders. Every
reliable breeder that we spoke to'
states that they would never sell
one of their puppies to a pet store.
2. Have you seen the look in the
puppies' eyes sitting there in the
small glass box hour after hour
with no socialization with other
dogs left to stand there on grates?
What happens to those puppies
who do not get purchased? What if
Petland over-ordered? Or ordered
the wrong merchandise? What hap-
pens to the overstock?
3. Why does Petland not display
the total price of the puppy? Could
it be that a person could be dis-
couraged from making the emo-
tional decision to buy? What great
marketing!
4. One final thought: If the
unfixed pet gets pregnant where
do you think the unwanted animals
will end up on the streets of
Nassau County or as strays
dumped into the county "tax"-sup-
ported animal control shelter? Now
your tax dollars will be used to
either care for or kill these dispos-
able pets.
We strongly urge Petland to
make the ethically responsible deci-
sion to sell animal supplies only
and provide Nassau County
Rescues a location to conduct adop-
tions. Until then we will continue to
transport animals for adoption to
Redbones, PetSmart and PetCo and
buy our supplies from them.

School pride redux
Re: The letter "School pride"
(June 8).. '
The letter writer quoted that the
senior class video was "a real joke."
She went on to state that "only the
friends of those who did the video
deserved the most air time." This
allegation of favoritism from the
creators of the video is far from the
truth.
A group of five students stayed
after graduation practice the
Wednesday before graduation to
work on the video. The only reason
it was being worked on so late was
because we had found out at the
last minute that all the pictures
were not used in a previous video:
that was created. So Mary Walker,
our amapng cla s.preddenrkdqIid-
ed to r&ctif3 thi oLc)"t'iglit l,
adding to the previously created


Ron Insana,
CNBC and NBC
business news journalist, will offer an insider's view of
the latest trends and financial headlines.

To balance the national perspective of the latest economic trends and
financial headlines provided by Insana, a panel of community leaders will
represent, the island perspective in an open panel/presenter dialogue.
Panelists are Presley Hollingsworth, vice president Watson Realty and pres-
ident of the Amelia Island-Nassau County Association of Realtors; Foy R.
Maloy, Jr., publisher of the News-Leader; and Chip Townsend, president of
First Coast Community Bank.

video. Carson Rodeffer, myself and
the others helping made sure that
every picture submitted for the
video was incorporated.
The senior class officers and
Mary Walker began asking for pho-
tos well' in advance for the video.
Announcements were made, word
was spread, students knew about
the video. The lack of effort on the
part of the students to submit their
pictures should not be held over
the heads of those who helped
make the video, nor the authority of
the school. I would have thought it
a great problem to have too many
pictures to sort through but, truth
be told, only those students who
have actively participated in class
activities all four years were the
ones who submitted their photos
and turned out to help make grad-
uation worthwhile.

Privatize the library
I have read with great interest
the letters and articles supporting
the library.'I have a different per-
spective.
Nationwide, 3 percent of the
population uses libraries. I doubt
our ratio is any different. We have
66,000 residents in Nassau County.
This means that about 2,000 people
ar.tieg.ular users of the library, L;',
The, budget for the library is
about $1 million annually. This
means that the 2,000 users of the
library are subsidized to the tune of
$500 each!
Assuming an average house-
hold of four people, this means
there are about 16,500 taxpayers.
Dividing this into the $1 million'


budget means the average taxpay-
er is paying about $60 for the
library. Of course some are paying
a lot less, which means that some
are paying a lot more, probably
$150 or more. This would buy a
homeowner a lot of books.
Don't let the figures of atten-
dance fake you out. Many people
use the library weekly, including
the pupils at the private parochial
school nearby. Most people don't
use the library. And don't let the fig-
ures of how many people have
library cards influence the issue. I
have a library card and maybe visit
the library once a year some years.
Some people say the library is
so poor people can access books.
The fact is that poor people are not
the heavy users. Middle and upper
income people are. When I lived
in Atlanta it was not unusual to see
chauffeured limousines dropping
off people to visit the free library.
Public support of libraries is one of
the worst cases of regressive taxa-
tion, exceeded only by state sup-
ported colleges.
What's the alternative? It should
be privatized. Blockbuster earns a
good profit with the exact same
process as libraries. As a minimum,.
the library should be self-funding.
I certainly don't think the library
should get an expensive piece of
property for.nothing for their new
facility. Iwoquld hate to sepeitH;
l. v'.'.-t m,,ney .h a boondo~glec,
similar to what Jacksonville is doing
with their brand new library. It is
right in the middle of downtown,
where itwill be used mainly by the
homeless to stay warm in winter
and cool in summer.
Let's use the $1 million of our
money for some other purposes. I


am sure there are other uses for
this money that would benefit more
people than the 2,000 who are cur-
rently getting a free ride.

Artistic vision
Fortunately, a handful'of our cit-
izens have the vision to try to give
our community a new source of
cultural enjoyment and' education.
Unfortunately, it is only a handful.
With about 10,000 residents in
Fernandina Beach alone, the new
Amelia Arts Centre which will
provide expanded new quarters for
the long-established Amelia Arts
Academy- deserves a hefty multi-
ple of the support it currently
receives.
The acquisition -of the First
Baptist Church property will pro-
vide all of Nassau County with an
abundance of needed yet current-
ly unavailable resources. The new
art center will enhance, not com-
pete with, will further, not take
away from, artistic and other pro-
grams vital to any well-rounded
area. This is an exciting proposi-
tion and a unique opportunity. You
deserve what this permanent proj-
ect can and will deliver. It deserves
your.support

the Kennedy administration did was to put through
the most sweeping tax cuts of the century. What
they realized then was that tax cuts that are good for
consumers and business actually increase govern-
ment revenues.
This lesson was unfortunately forgotten by the
Nixon and Carter administrations and their com-
bined efforts inched the top tax rates over 70 per-
cent. Government revenues during the late '70s
were at an all-time low.
Inheriting the Dot Corn bust, George Bush had
little choice but to cut taxes and increase govern-
ment spending. The principles of John Maynard
Keynes first practiced by the Roosevelt administra-
tion are as true today as they ever were. Phil's asser-
tion that "Being selfish and uncaring has become
smart" is something I can't agree with. Let's be
clear: tax rates shouldn't be a selfish/unselfish,
rich/poor, Republican/Democrat issue at all. Taxes
should be set at rates that most benefit business,

behaving so well, docilely accepting anything and
everything the White House tells us, supported by
the cast of spinners on Capital Hill, and the cower-
ing media. ,
So what's the lesson here?
If you're a high-ranking administrative type, who
has damaging information, and you're gonna squeal
on the president the patriotic, American thing to
do, is squeal to his allies, because following the
chain-of-command is always more important than
making sure the facts are given to the Fourth
Estate, who will insure that the story will break.
Oh but that's right, the media is a liberal tool,
they are just on constant witchhunts against conser-
vatives and Republicans, they have no credibility.
Hmmm, I guess Bill Clinton must have been a
conservative, Republican during Whitewater and
"Monicagate." Otherwise, we would have never
heard about it, right?
OK, the Goldfish digressed once again.


I find it almost funny, if it weren't true, that
the new guard (f/k/a the old guard) can look
straight-faced into a camera and go after Mark
Felt, as if he committed the Watergate break-in him-
self. They think that Americans are so stupid that
we would accept the notion that whistleblowing
."done the wrong way" (in their view) is criminal,
even traitorous.
These types would probably want you.to believe
that exposing the likes of Enron and Haliburton is
wrong too, and that somehow in doing so, the
source is hurting America.
That is not the lesson I want my son to learn.
These apologist/inner circle/old guard people
are the ones who are dangerous to America, and we
should not allow them to distort and convolute reali-
ty, to perpetuate and enable wrongdoing, especially
at the highest level of government.

iorial Day second thoughts


try a competitive edge in international market
places.
On 9/11 I1 was one of those Manhattanites stupid
enough to go downtown to watch what was going
on, and I wish I hadn't After witnessing that thun-
dering horror up close, Iknew I could have con-
fessed to every crime in the book and sworn my
mother drove the getaway car, just not to get any
closer. And yet I found out later that Catholic fire-
men, guys whose station house I passed every day,
guys who drank at my local pub, took Last Rites
from a priest before going into those buildings and
certain death. Where that courage comes from, I'll
never know. But I do know those guys were the first
casualties of the war we are now fighting.
Ever since that day I have listened intently to
what we have to do to stop a similar attack from hap-
pening. I have heard discussion from the Left and
Right heard ferocious, room clearing, who-gets cus-
tody-of-the-kids type arguments, and I have never
heard anyone opposed to the wars we're fighting
called a traitor, as Phil implies. Words like that sim-
ply don't apply,, especially when at any given time at
least 50 percent of the population has indicated in
polls opposition to government policy.
Despite paranoid kvetching from the Left,
speech has never been more free or more abundant
than now.
"Eliminate the 'preemptive war' policy-to avoid
future costly wars based on faulty intelligence," says
Phil. Yes, we've learned the CIA has become a bloat-
ed bureaucracy, the post office with secret hand-


shakes, but all intelligence hasn't been wrong. The
war in Iraq, it can be strongly argued, was anything
but preemptive and eliminated a huge threat to our
citizenry. Arguments can also be made to the con-

trary. However, shrieking "Bush Lied, Kids Died," is
not a discussion.
"Institute a draft," says Phil, adding that he rec-
ognizes many will disagree. OK, I disagree. For one,
the technical knowledge required to be a regular
soldier has grown so great since Phil and I were in
the service, it doesn't pay to train short-term
draftees and let them go. Rather than a draft we
need to pay our professional soldiers better, and
yes, increase death benefits immediately.
Next, this country doesn't react well to involun-
tary servitude. Even in WWII, when everyone
agreed we needed a draft, charges of favoritism and
unfair practices rent the country. The funny thing is,
the people most opposed to wars now are most in
favor of the draft. That this is a tactic designed to
divide us further is obvious and not a little disingen-
uous.
Finally, we need more people like the New York
Fire Department affectionately known as 'The
Bravest' to fight our wars. People who see their
profession as an honor, and as a higher calling. If we
pay what the job is worth, if our causes are just, if
we instill in our young people a sense of duty, we
will have enough soldiers. If not, then maybe we'll
deserve what we get.

gotten to the point where it's very
scary," she said.
And although representatives
for animal control services for
Nassau County and Fernandina
Beach say it's fairly rare, unsu-
pervised dogs can injure humans
and other animals.
As a child, 23-year-old Jeremy
Abernathy lived in Yulee Hills.
He says even then, dogs running
lose were a.problem. One day as
he Was delivering a birthday card
to a neighbor, Abernathy said he
was attacked by a pit bull.
"It knocked me down ... it got
me pretty good," Abernathy said.
"My whole arm was covered with
blood ... I was lucky not to have my
arm (amputated)."
Abernathy said the incident
caused nerve damage to his arm,
and he still has scars.
"Sometimes it'll kind of twitch,
like a muscle spasm," he said.
Abernathy said the dog was
euthanized as a result of the attack.
And dogs at large don't pose a
danger only to people. Unsuper-
vised or unleashed dogs can also
be dangerous to other dogs.
"Get your dog on a leash,"
advises Sparky Weitzel, co-director
of the Nassau Humane Society,
which provides animal control
services for the city of Fernandina
Beach..
Weitzel said the number of ani-
mal control complaints each
month in Fernandina .Beach

ranges somewhere in the "mid-
30s," with only one to three of
those being dog-bite cases.
The number of cases where
dogs bite strangers is even lower,
she said.
"Agood portion of the bites are
generated by the person's own dog
or a visiting dog," she said.
It was a neighbor's dog that
Fernandina Beach resident
Carolyn Grafton says attacked her
and her small dog, GiGi Beugnet
Grafton said she was getting
ready to take GiGi for a walk on the
night of April 25 when a pit bull
owned by her neighbors came run-
ning toward her.
"The dog plowed into me and
kind of tossed (GiGi) in the air,"

Grafton recalled. "I was scream-
ing, there was blood everywhere.
I thought (GiGi) was dead ... if this
dog had attacked (a child) like it
attacked me, it probably would
have killed him."
GiGi survived the incident, but
required surgery. Grafton received
minor injuries to her hand.
According to a Fernandina
Beach Police Department report,
neither dog was on a leash when
the incident occurred.
Weitzel said Grafton and the
owner of the pit bull were warned
to keep their dogs on leashes in
the future, and she said the pi bull
would not be euthanized or desig-
nated a "dangerous dog," a legal
designation used for dogs believed
to be a serious threat to others.
The "dangerous dog" desig-
" nation, which requires dog own-
ers to have the dog surgically ster-
ilized and labeled with, a large,
fluorescent tag, or euthanasia are
two possible consequences for
P dogs that attack. Weitzel said that
is rarely necessary. -
"There's no history of (the pit
bull that bit Grafton) ever attack-
ing anyone," Weitzel said. "Most
animal control officers are looking


at at least three attacks or some-
thing is killed (before euthanasia
or the designation of 'dangerous
dog' is considered) ... if we put
down every dog that bit someone,
we'd be putting down a lot of ani-
mals in this county."
Christine Rector, the adoption
coordinator for Nassau County
Animal Control, said animal con-
trol workers will observe dogs that
are suspected to be dangerous.
"Once we get them here, we
observe them on a daily basis,"
she said. "We try to get an idea of
the animal's disposition ... we inter-
act with the dogs like a veterinar-
ian or a child would ... every dog is
different"
Rector said Nassau County
Animal Control doesn't receive
many bite complaints, but she said
complaints about unsupervised
dogs are more common. With only
two animal control officers who
cover all of Nassau County except
the city limits of Fernandina
Beach, Rector said leash laws can
be difficult to enforce.
"Dogs aren't supposed to be
roaming," Rector said. "But we
can't do anything to the dog if the
dog is back on the owner's prop-
erty when we get there."
To avoid dog bite incidents,
Rector advises dog owners to take
good care of their dogs, invest in a
good fence, make sure their ani-
mals are spayed or neutered and.
are licensed in the county, and to
make sure their animals are up-
to-date on their vaccinations.
Rector also advises people like
Powell and Royal, who feel threat-
ened by roaming dogs in their
neighborhood, to continue to call
animal control when they see dog
owners violating leash laws.
"I know sometimes it seems it
doesn't get anywhere, but it does,"
she said. "We keep a file of every
complaint we get... it's just a mat-
ter of hopefully the officer being
there at the right time."

DUMP Continued from 1A
ty landfill.
For residents like Mary Stewart,
it's a frustrating nuisance that she
and other residents have lived with
for years.
It was bad enough, Stewart said,
when someone decided to locate a
giant sewer plant across the street
years ago. Now she has to smell
even more people's trash.
"I'm not cleaning it up," Stewart
said, after the trash had been lying
in the ditch for weeks.
She said occasionally someone
will tear down the "No Dumping"
sign and the trash will reappear.
Others simply ignore the sign.
Once someone added dirt
mounds as a roadblock, she said.
But it was just a matter of time
.before they withered away and
trucks could drive over them and
dump more trash.
For new Ian Drive resident
Gloria Brown, the worst part is the
vultures. They're so big, she said,
that their shadows "look like an air-
plane flying low."
Tucked away under a canopy
of trees, the little neighborhood is
connected by small paved roads
dotted with small houses and
mobile homes. Across a thin buffer
of trees is a county sewer plant built
in the 1970s. The smell from the
plant is terrible, Stewart said, and
the mosquitoes in the summer are
even worse.
It's an area. of Amelia Island
many visitors don't see when they
drive down Highway 105 toward
resorts such as Amelia Island
Plantation or Summer Beach. It's a
quiet drive with simple houses that
stand in sharp contrast to the high-
end housing developments that
have sprung up around it But the
homes on Ian Drive and Avery
Road were there long before this
new development, and residents
don't appreciate the fact some peo-
ple have no more respect for their
neighborhood than to use it as a
dump.
The dumping occurs so fre-
quently, Stewart said, she doesn't
even report it anymore. And if it is
cleaned up, it doesn't take long
before it reappears. "It does no good
to call somebody," Stewart said.
"And one person can't do it all."
County Code Enforcement
Officer Brenda Rothwell said she
was not aware of the illegal dump-
ing, but said it is a problem facing
every community. It's not uncom-
mon to find places where trash and'
litter has been thrown into the right


of way or onto someone else's prop-
erty. And it's also hard, she said, to
find who's responsible.
"It happens all the time,"
Rothwell said. "Some people don't
want to pay at the landfill or pay
for garbage pickup."
Much of the dumping at the cor-
ner of Ian Drive and Avery Road
consists of old wallpaper, bricks,
tile and other residential building
materials. Rothwell said that is too
often the case. Some builders or
contractors would rather throw
their surplus materials and trash
into a ditch than pay to put it in the
landfill.
"We get a lot from local con-
tractors," she said. "If they're build-
ing or clearing a piece of property,
they'll sometimes find a road and
they throw it out there."
So who's responsible for clean-
ing it up?
Hopefully the responsible party,
Rothwell said. But that's easier said
than done.
If no one can provide a descrip-
tion of the persons or their vehi-
cle, the county will inspect the trash,
to try and identify the culprit But
Rothwell said that's difficult if no
one witnessed the offense.
If there is a witness or strong
evidence of a guilty party, the coun-
ty will send a notice of violation.
Once contacted, the person is given
a few days to clean up the trash -
in the presence of a code enforce-
ment officer or county official.
"Normally, 99.9 percent have
full compliance," Rothwell said.
If not, they are summoned
before the code enforcement board
where they could face fines.
In unsolved cases, the county
will send a crew to clean up the
site.
"If (the trash) is on the right of
way, we notify the road and bridge
department," she said. "We'll send
a work order, and they'll go by to
clean it up. If it's a small amount, my
officers will throw it in the back of
a truck and take it to the landfill."
Rothwell encouraged residents
on Ian Drive and anywhere illegal
dumping occurs in the county to
call the county's code enforcement
office at 491-3615. She also includ-
ed her pager number at 498-0824.
Stewart said she did not call the
county to report the most recent
dumping because she was frus-
trated about a lack of response in
the past. "They've been dumping
out here a long time," she said.
"We've called before and nothing's
happened."

Chamber music fest pianos


to beauctioned on Monday


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
Bob Kelly has been selling and
servicing Yamaha pianos- in
Jacksonville for 25 years, but the
family's Yamaha piano business had
been going for 20 years before that,
he says.
"We went with Yamaha pianos
because they're number 1 in selling
pianos worldwide. And their pianos
are known for their quality of tone,
their stability of tuning and the fact
that these pianos are the choice of
,professionals," Kelly says."They
are top quality."
Yamaha pianos have been


provided by Kelly's Piano &
Organ, Inc. of Jacksonville for
the use of the Amelia Island
Chamber Music Festival this year,
and there will be a special sales
event of the pianos used in the fes-
tival after the performances are
over.
"In the special sale, these
festival pianos plus other selected
Yamaha grands, consoles, and
Disklavier player pianos will be
offered at special discount prices,"
Kelly says. "All pianos will have a
10-year warranty and will be tuned
and delivered free of charge by
Kelly's Piano & Organ."
For members of the festival,


there will be a preview of the sale
pianos on Sunday, but ifinterested,
prospective customers must call
ahead to Kelly at (904) 923-2840
for an opportunity to preview the
instruments, he says.
"The one-day-only sale will
be held in Salon 2 at The Ritz-
Carlton Hotel on Amelia Island
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday.
The Ritz is also a member of the
festival, and they made the space
for the sale available," Kelly says. "A
percentage of all sales will be
given to the festival, so all pur-
chases made in the sale next
Monday also will benefit the festi-
val."

Yulee family left homeless


but fire causes no injuries


SUBMITTED
Two people were injured, including a Camden County deputy, when a tractor-trailer struck the
deputy's vehicle as he was assisting motorists in the emergency lane of 1-95.



Wreck hurts Camden deputy


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Two people, including a
Camden County Sheriff's deputy,
were injured Sunday morning
when a tractor-trailer struck the
deputy's car while it was parked
in the emergency lane of 1-95 near
the state line.
Deputy Sean Billington, 35, of
Woodbine, Ga., was assisting a
Pennsylvania family after their car
broke down in the southbound
lane of 1-95 when the accident
occurred.
According to a report from the
Florida Highway Patrol, the truck
struck Billington's patrol car while


he was sitting inside the vehicle
around 9:30 a.m. The impact
caused Billington's vehicle to hit
the disabled car, which struck a
Pennsylvania teenager who was
standing nearby.
Billington and Alicia R Garland,
19, of Mifflintown, Pa., were taken
to Shands Jacksonville, where they
were treated for their injuries. They
have since been released from the
hospital.
Travis Forry said he was trav-
eling with family and Garland, his
girlfriend, to Vero Beach, when his
car broke down near the
Georgia/Florida state line.
Billington stopped to help and
had called a tow truck for the vehi-


cle, Forry said.
Forry's mother, Karen Walters,
was also taken to Shands
Jacksonville because she was
hyperventilating, said Lt. Bill
Leeper of the Florida Highway
Patrol.
"She just got really upset,"
Forry said. "I don't think she was
hurt."
Walters was treated and
released from the hospital later
that day.
The driver of the truck, Michael
S. Browning, 40, of Hodges, S.C.,
was not injured in the accident. He
was issued a citation for failure to
use due care, an $81 fine according
to Leeper.
The accident caused about
$1,200 damage to the truck and
approximately $12,000 damage to
Billington's patrol car.

The home of a Yulee woman
and her four children was
destroyed Thursday afternoon as
a result of an electrical fire.
Ronda Register said she had
no insurance on the home, locat-
ed at 86018 Clyde St., which she
inherited last year after her moth-
er died. Register lived in the home
with her children, ages 14, 11, 7
and 3.
"I don't know what I'm going to
do," she said, quietly crying as
neighbors hugged her. "I don't
have insurance ... I don't have fam-
ily around here."
No one was home when the
fire broke out around 1 p.m.
Firefighters from Nassau County
Fire-Rescue, the Nassauville
Volunteer Fire Department and
the Yulee Volunteer Fire
Department responded and had
the fire under control within
approximately five minutes, said
Chief Chuck Cooper.
"I was only gone for a few min-
utes," Register said.
Roger A Henderson, fire inves-
tigator for Nassau County Fire
Rescue, said the fire was caused
by a window air conditioning unit
that was plugged into a power strip
that was plugged into an exten-
sion cord.


SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
No one was home when a fire broke out around 1 p.m. on
Thursday, leaving a Yulee woman and her four children
homeless.


"The power strip couldn't han-
dle the (electrical) load of a win-
dow unit," Henderson said.
The power strip overheated
and sparked a fire that spread
through the bedroom where the
air conditioner was located and up
into the attic.
"A window air conditioning unit


really needs to be plugged into a
wall outlet, not a power strip,"
Henderson said.
Cooper said the Northeast
Florida Chapter of the American
Red Cross would assist Register
and her children with shelter, food
and clothing.

Jail inmate suicide attempt reported


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
An inmate at the Nassau
County Jail was taken to the hos-
pital Friday night after he report-
edly tried to hang himself using a
bed sheet.
Jason Lee Wilson, 30, of
Fernandina Beach, was taken to
Shands Jacksonville where he was
treated and released into police
custody.
According to a report from the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
Wilson was "talking to himself


Wilson


and laughing"
when jail per-
sonnel conduct-
ed a bed check
around 10 p.m.
that night.
Moments
later, another
inmate saw
Wilson wrap the
sheet around his


neck and move his feet from the
bed to the floor.
The witness pushed an emer-
gency call button in his cell and
grabbed Wilson around his knees


until a corrections officer arrived
and cut the sheet from Wilson's
neck.
Nassau County SheriffTommy
Seagraves said Wilson is back at
the jail after being released from
Shands and that he is in good con-
dition.
Wilson has been in jail since
April 15, when he was arrested
on a Nassau County warrant for
grand theft. He is being held on
$25,002 bond.
The incident is under investi-
gation.

Adam Kelley, 17, of Fernandina Beach was killed Thursday
when he fell 20 feet from the bucket of this truck while work-
ing for his. father's electrical company.


OSHA
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Investigators from the
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration are looking into the
accident that killed 17-year-old
Adam Kelley of Fernandina Beach
last week, said James Borders, area
director for OSHA.
Kelley was killed Thursday after
he fell from the bucket of an ele-
vated bucket truck while he was
working with his father's compa-
ny, M.T. Kelley Electrical
Contractors.
Borders said OSHA investiga-
tors will "try to determine the cause
of the accident ... and determine
whether there were any violations
of OSHA standards" related to the
incident
OSHA has six months to com-
plete the investigation and deter-
mine whether any citations will be
issued.
"If we issue a citation to the
employer, the employer can dis-
agree with (and appeal) our find-
ings," Borders said.
Citations usually result in
financial penalties. In rare cases,
criminal penalties can result from
an OSHA investigation, Borders
said.
According to a report from the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
emergency personnel were dis-
patched to the scene of the acci-
dent around noon on Thursday.
The accident happened near
the Mariner's Walk Condominiums
off Amelia Island Parkway as
Kelley was attempting to pull a light

If you shop around for a home equity loan or line of credit, you'll
find that a lot of low advertised rates don't look as good when you read the

rate is not a teaser rate just to get you in the door and it doesn't go up based
on your credit. There are no hidden costs, annual fees or pre-payment penalties
that change the true cost of the loan to you. In fact, we'll even pay your closing :'{
costs on lines of $10,000 to $125,000. Our best rate is half a percent below prime.
The prime rate is reported by The Wall Street Journal in the Money Rates section.
Of course, there are always limitations and restrictions, such as basic credit approval,7
the appraised value of your home and the amount of money you want to borrow.
But in the end, you'll find that our low rates just keep getting better, the more you
know. For example, you can get our best rate on up to 80% of the value of your home, '
less the first mortgage balance, if it's your primary residence. Other loan to value rates

Braves are

primed

to fold to

Exposionals

SPN became the
second major entity
to remove its name
from the Bowl
Championship Series mess,
telling USA Today last week
that it didn't want its name
attached to the newspaper's
Top 25 college football
coaches poll anymore.
Can you blame ESPN? I
mean, endorsing something
that promotes the BCS
would be like endorsing
hemorrhoids. And it just
wouldn't be right to go
telling people to sit on wet
concrete or to eat massive
amounts of dairy...
We all knew the run
would eventually come to an
end for the Atlanta Braves.
Anybody who follows Major
League Baseball expected
the ridiculous string of con-
secutive division titles to be
over by now.
But passing the torch to
the Montreal Expos (I know
they're the Washington
Nationals now but I refuse to
conform) has to be like tak-
ing a Randy Johnson heater
to the mid-section. After all,
this is the Expos team that
finished 67-95 in 2004, fifth
place in the same division
they're challenging to win.
And they have the same per-
sonnel.
Conceding the National
League East to the New York
'Mets or the Florida Marlins,
both of whom specifically
build their teams each year
to match up with the Braves,
would be easier to swallow.
But to give up the title to a
team that is the bastard son
of Major League Baseball
would be a disgrace.
Granted it's a long season
and I've sung doom and
gloom for the Braves before,
only to see them charge
back out on top. But this
year has a different feel.
Atlanta, as of Sunday, was in
fourth place in the division
and falling fast. The
Montrealshington
Exposionals (OK, I'll meet
half way), on the other hand,
were in first place and look-
ing like world-beaters.
Somebody had better kidnap
the fat lady and duct tape her
mouth before she starts
singing like a bird..Or better
yet, set up a trip for the
entire Braves roster to
attend a hitting clinic, in
Washington, D.C., perhaps.
Or in Montreal. Or in Puerto
Rico. Or wherever the Expos
are...
Speaking of the Braves,
it's just a matter of time
before the team starts comb-
ing Little League fields for
talent, if they already
haven't. I could swear I saw a
kid with a hardware store ad
on the back of his jersey in
the Atlanta dugout last week-
end. Turns out it was rookie
catcher Brian McCann,
recently promoted from
Double A. I'm sorry, but
teams expected to compete
for MLB division titles
should not have to routinely
pluck players from their
minor league system. Just
another sign that things
might be headed to Hades in
a hand basket in Atlanta...
One guy certain not to be
following that hand basket,
former University of Florida
QB and Heisman Trophy
winner Danny Wuerffel will
have a national college foot-
ball award named after him
beginning next fall. The
Wuerffel Trophy will be
given annually to the player
who best combines exempla-
ry community service with
outstanding academic and
athletic achievement. Heck,
the guy should have an
award named after him for
running a ministry in New
Orleans. That takes more
courage and commitment
than anything he accom-
plished as a college quarter-
back.

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA


Lawrence repeats


as county's MVP


JIM HARVIN
Community Newspapers
Katie Lawrence started playing
ball when she was five. Her inter-
est in pitching came a few years
later.
"My dad 'took me to a game
when I was eight and told me to
watch the pitcher," she said. "After
the game he said 'Do you want to
do that?' and I said 'Sure, why not?'
After that, he started working with
me.
. "We'd.go up to the Little League
field in Hilliard because we don't
live that far away. He would sit on
his bucket and make me do these
drills. I would go to the mound and
pitch to him. Finally he would hold
his glove in a certain spot and tell
me if I could hit it, we could go
home. Sometimes I left crying
because I was so mad and I want-
ed to go home, but he wouldn't let
me leave until I hit his glove."
These days, Lawrence hits her
spots with amazing regularity and
has developed into one of the top
softball players in the state. Over
the past two seasons she has led
the Lady Warriors to back-to-back
Final Four appearances with a com-
bined record of 46-6 on the mound.
' This past season, she was 24-4,
posting a miniscule ERA of 0.15
and striking out 336 batters. It is no
surprise she is the Nassau County
player of the year for the second
straight season.
"Katie's a very accurate pitch-
er," said head coach Candy Hicken.
"She walks very few batters. She
gets it to the plate and works her
corners well."
Dominant? Of her 24 wins in
2005,..17-were shutuults, including
a perfect game the first of her
career and a handful of no-hit-
ters.
Durable? Lawrence started all
but three games for the Lady
Warriors, throwing a whopping 334
innings.
Accurate? She only walked 17
batters all season.
Yet Lawrence is anything but
one-dimensional. She batted clean-
up and hit an impressive .431 while
leading the team in home runs
(two) and RBI (37). And she fields
her position extremely well, com-
mitting just one error all season.


"She's a well-rounded player
who is good both offensively and
defensively," Hicken said. "It's
always a plus when. you have a
pitcher who can swing the bat
well."
Robert Lawrence said his
daughter's success is centered
around her determination.
"She just hates to lose that's
always been her thing," he said.
"She figured out how to win. She
looks at every pitch as a battle and
she likes to win every battle."
Katie said, there have been
many people who have helped her
development along the way, but
two in particular deserve a great
deal of credit. They are Larry and
Vicky Rogers, who formerly
coached at First Coast High School
and currently coach in Camden
County, Ga.
'They pretty much helped me
with everything," Lawrence said.
'They really taught me a lot, and'I
still go to them for help when I
need it. They still come to a lot of
my games and are very support-
ive."
The Vickers started the First
Coast Fire, an association of trav-
eling teams in different age groups.
Lawrence started playing for the
Fire when she was 10 and has
played for them ever since.
"We play all summer on week-
ends and a lot of college coaches
come to the games so it's a good
way to be seen," Lawrence said.
This %year, Lawrence was noth-
ing short of phenomenal in leading
the Lady Warriors back to the Final
Four.
In West Nassau's three region-
al playoff wins, she pitched back-to-
back-to-back shutouts, allowing a
total of just five hits while striking
out 39 batters.
Lawrence excels in the class-
room as well as on the field. She is
a straight-A student who has long-
range plans of being an orthopedic
surgeon.
That combination of athletics
and academics will make Lawrence
one of the premier recruits in the
state in her upcoming senior year.
"Her desire to win and always
be on top is what drives her," said
Carol Lawrence, Katie's mother.
"She's that way in everything she
does in school and in sports." .


ji'.i Hi- "vi U 'rIi.rir-N-i rLk IrAf .V LI
West Nassau junior pitcher Katie Lawrence is once again Nassau County's most valuable soft-
ball player. With a 24-4 record, she tops the 2005 Nassau County Girls Softball Team, which
appears on 3B.


While Lawrence; the oldest of
four children, admits that playing
so much softball can be exhausting,
she wouldn't have it any other \\a.v.
"I don't take any other sports


seriously," she said. "I just love
pla.Iing softballl and being out there
on that field. Yu s'.:Wcrifice a lot as
far as a ;-' cial life, but in the long

Joyce fires 69 to win Wednesday


PIRATES CLAW 'CATS


It wasn't a typical summer day in North Florida
as it was cloudy, warm and windy as 58 players teed
off to play in the Fernandina Beach Men's Golf
Association Wednesday blitz last week. Mike Joyce
had another good day as he shot a 69 good for plus
10 points and individual honors. Two players
shared other individual honors at plus 8 Charles
Helenbrook (82) and Price Poole (72).
Joyce and Helenbrook along with Bruce Porter
(91, plus 2) and Tom Shave (77, minus 3) finished
at plus 17 and in first place.
A distant second at plus 7 was the team of Ray
Huskey (84, plus 3), Mickey Rushton (92, plus 1),
Don Lay (90, even) and Jim White (92, plus 3).
Third place at plus 6 went to the team of Scott
Adams (88, even), Chris Kennett (80, plus 4),
Sammy Alvarez (79, plus 2) and Tom O'Keefe (94,
even).
The final winning team was a five man team
made up of Michael Kaufman (87, plus 1), Ed
Lormand (91, plus 2), P.W. Nobles (93, minus 4),
Michael Parker (78, plus 6) and Sam DuBose (92,
even) with a plus 5.
With the three-day June Invitational tournament
starting on Friday the number playing in the Friday
blitz was limited to 21 players and three-man teams
playing north/north. Two players found this setup
to their liking as they came in at plus 11 to share
individual honors Bob Barwick (90) and Steve
Shannon (73).
Chuck Helenbrook (87, minus 3) and Tom
O'Keefe (90, even) enabled Barwick's plus 11 to
carry the team to plus 8 and first place.
It isn't often that a minus 14 makes a winning
team but when helped out by Shannon (plus 11),
John Bray (80, plus 5) and Jack Sipes (91, minus
14), they managed to limp in and take second place
at plus 2.
With a limited field, there were only three team
winners and the final spot went to Tom Shave (79,
minus 4), Mike Lovejoy (81, plus 4) and Jack
Harrison (81, plus 1) as they came in a net plus 1.
There was no breakfast mixer due to the June
Invitational Tournament being held over the week-
end. The next scheduled tournament is a mixed
best ball tournament to be held on June 26. Visit

June 17. 1962 A PGA Tour rookie
by the name of Jack Nicklaus took
down the then king of the game,
Arnold Palmer, in a playoff to cap-
ture the United States Open at
Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont,
Pa. Nicklaus and Palmer had tied
after regulation play at 283. In the
playoff, Nicklaus shot a 71 to take
home his first U.S. Open trophy by
three strokes.


The "axe" or "tomahawk"
shot is one that is not used
/ \ very often, but can be
essential in saving strokes.
This shot is primarily used,
when trying to make a shot
from the back edge of a
bunker, right along the edge
between the grass and the
sand. When the ball is on the back edge
of the bunker, you can not use a normal
backswing because you will hit the lip of
the bunker. To avoid hitting the back lip of
the bunker, you muft pick the club up
vertically like an axe and then bring it
back to the ball on the same line. As the
club hits the sand around two inches
behind the ball, you need to eject your
left arm to allow the cut to cut right under-
neath the ball. This will allow the ball to
sail out easily and toward the target.

OUTDOORS


Catch

W ith a big run of
kingfish taking
place at many of the
offshore fish havens
and along the beaches and inlets
of Northeast Florida, catching a
high-leaping kingfish is the
desire of many avid saltwater
fishermen, particularly with the
upcoming 23rd annual Nassau
Sport Fishing Association
Tournament of Champions just a
little over a week away.
To get things started and step
up the adrenaline, Wanda Hair
recently laid the groundwork for
what is considered small and big
in the world of kingfishing.
"We netted a live well full of
nice size menhaden and headed
offshore for FC reef," said Hair
of Fernandina Beach and wife of
local charter captain, Steve Hair.
"It was a perfect morning for
king fishing on the 'Pirate II' as
Butch Taylor and Earl Colter set
out live menhaden both on the
surface and down deep. We had
been fishing for only a few min-
utes when a big king struck one
of the surface live baits.
"You could tell that it was a.
big fish, as it ran fast and away
from the boat After a 10-minute
battle, Earl gaffed my big king
and right away I knew that it was
the largest kingfish that I had
ever landed!"
Back at the Fernandina
Beach harbor fish scales, Hair's
big kingfish weighed 42 pounds,
definitely setting the precedence
of what is considered big and
small in the kingfish world.
The annual Kingbuster
Kingfish Tournament was held
last weekend out of St.
Augustine. Richard Henley and,
the "Stocks Option" fishing team
weighed in the largest kingfish
of the event at 36 pounds. The
winning kingfish was reportedly
boated off from the "Red Tops"
on Jacksonville Beach. Charlie
Lyons of the "River Marine" fish-
ing team weighed in the second-
largest kingfish of the event at 35
pounds.
"It was fishable on Friday,"


a king

Paul Massey
said. "But
Saturday
morning the
Coast Guard
Told the
Kingfish
staff that the
weather was
too bad to
Terry Lacoss hold a fish-
S.. ing tourna-
OTDRoS : ment, so the
OUTDOORS event was
canceled."
Massey and his "Out-
rageous" fishing team placed
17th in the event with a 26-pound
kingfish.
The next kingfish event will
be the 23rd annual Nassau Sport
Fishing Association Tournament
of Champions.
"Looks like we are going to
have another big event," tourna-
ment coordinator Rick Langford
said. "The fishing has been
excellent for kingfish this year so
far and, with this in mind, I think
we will have a lot of interest in
our kingfish tournament.
"Keeping in mind that during
the 2003 kingfish tournament,
we had a record number of
entries at 258 boats. Last year,
the cold water temperatures hurt
our registration, but we still had
238 boats enter our tournament.
This year the ocean water tem-
perature has been warm and we
are keeping our fingers crossed
that these warm water tempera-
tures will hold right through our
tournament"
The popular local event will
get under way with a mandatory
captain meeting on June 30. The
first will begin at 5:30 p.m. and
the second meeting will take
place at 7:00 p.m. Tournament
days will be July 1-2. The awards
dinner will take place on July 3
beginning at 1 p.m.
All the festivities will be held
from the Fernandina Beach
Harbor Marina.
There have been two changes
in this year's format. The first
allows tournament teams to navi-

gate to their fishing waters in the
Intracoastal Waterway. However,
they must return with their
catches through the Cumberland
Sound inlet and be checked in
properly.
The youth angler who weighs
in the largest kingfish will
receive a nice check of $1,500


sponsored by the News-Leader.
They will also receive a free
entry into next year's kingfish
tournament.
The angler who weighs in the
largest kingfish of the event will
receive a check for $25,000!
There will also be top lady angler
and 23-foot-and-under awards.


SUBMITTED
Wanda Hair, right, is pictured with the 42-
pound kingfish she recently landed while fish-
ing with Butch Taylor, center and Earl Colter.
The lucky fishermen were fishing aboard the
"Pirate U."


Second place in the event will be
worth $6,500 for the two-day
heaviest aggregate catch.
"I predict that a lot of the
smaller boaters will fish close by
with a nice run of kingfish taking
place right now," Joe Bruce said.
"However those 'big guys' will
still make th6se long runs to


Grey's Reef (52 miles), D-Buoy,
Cabretta and the Brunswick
Bottom. It wouldn't surprise me
if a small boater landed the
largest fish close to home this
year!"

tournament, call Langford at 277-

Benefit barbecue proves community spirit is alive and well


Dickie Anderson

FROM THE
PORCH


WT e live in a community of
good people who are
quick to help a cause, a
project or someone in
need. We write checks, buy cookies,
attend performances, put on garage
sales and attend special events. A
very special event happened on
Friday, June 3, at the BA Pig barbe-
cue restaurant, demonstrating once
again that community spirit is alive.
In less then two weeks the Karing
for Karen event was put together and
soon took on a life of its own. Joe
Helms, new owner of the popular bar-
beque and seafood restaurant at the
base of the Shave bridge, opened his
restaurant for a good old-fashioned


Back Porch Benefit Barbeque fund-
raiser to benefit Karen Miller, a local
writer and community volunteer who
recently underwent surgery and is
uninsured. Miller writes for local pub-
lications and is known for her food
columns that celebrate all the fantas-
tic eateries our island has to offer.
Nearly every restaurant on the island
gave generously offering meals or gift
certificates for the raffle that was held
the night of the event. Door prizes
and silent auction items were donat-
ed.
Interest began to swell the week of
the event and by weekend an attempt
was made to estimate the number
who would show up that Friday night


Show up they did. Around 70 were
estimated and despite torrential rain
150 showed up and patiently waited
as Helm's crew kept the food coming.
Added to the challenge of feeding a
big crowd, Mother Nature arrived
with drama. A windy downpour tested
the crowd but did not shorten the
barbecue buffet or bar lines.
The weather canceled out the
planned music but Don Davis, or the
Donald as organizers dubbed him,
their talented auctioneer, quickly
stepped up to the microphone and
shamelessly played the crowd who
loved every minute of it.
The recipient of the community
event, Karen Miller, was able to


attend and drew names for some of
the generous prizes. As the evening
closed Miller drew the name of the
lucky winner of one of the most
coveted prizes a homemade pie
each month for a year from Old
South Yankee. The winner? Jan
Christiansen, the executive director
of Micah's Place. She has a lot of new
best friends.
So careful what you wish for when
you plan an event Build it and they
will probably come!

humorist. Check out her website:

able for speaking engagements to

ARIAS scholarships
A festive evening of patriotic music filled the main ballroom of
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on May 27, as over 500 listeners
enjoyed the sounds of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra.
Hosted by ARIAS (Amelia Residents in Action for the Symphony).
the program tiled "Let Freedom Ring* was the group's fifth annu-
al Memorial Day weekend concert celebration. Led by Music
Director and Principal Conductor Fabio Mechetti, the concert
included music of George M. Cohan, the Armed Forces Salute
and Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. Actor Todd Booth gave an
inspiring performance as guest narrator in Copland's Lincoln
Portrait.
One of ARIAS' primary goals is to help provide music education
for the children of Nassau County, in addition to bringing the
Jacksonville Symphony to Nassau County and encouraging
Nassau residents to become symphony-goers. Following intermis-
sion, ARIAS presented music scholarships to five young students.
The 2005 ARIAS Music Scholarship winners are Channelle
Brown from Yulee Elementary School, Madisyn Burrows, Danielle
Minahan and Emily Watson from St. Michael Academy and Laura
Perkins from Emma Love Hardee Elementary. The scholarships
were funded by Nicole and Jean-Clause Casavant, Margaret Mary
and Dave Krohn, the Alice Latimer Scholarship Fund, Mary and
Frank Malone, and Margaret and Dan Schleppe. The scholarships
enable these young students to pursue lessons at the Amelia Arts
Academy.

'Academy Award'winner
Amelia Arts Academy students were presented with "The Academy
Awards" at their Spring Recital for their many years of hard work and
practice at the Academy. Stephen Hanner, who has 10 years with the
academy, starting lessons as a 6-year-old, is shown here with his piano
teacher Kamila Shahtahktinskaya and academy Executive Director
Richard Dickson.
Stephen has learned to play piano, french horn and guitar, and he
uses those skills in the jazz, symphonic, and marching bands at the
high school as well as the New Horizons Concert and Amelia Island
Brass bands. Stephen's grandmother Ann Hanner, who was there to
encourage Stephen in his musical pursuits early on, says, "If you don't
encourage that type of musical interest in a child ... you don't use it,
you can lose it." She also believes there is a connection between
Stephen's good grades in school and his involvement in music. "Music
is all fractions and learning patterns, and a lot of discipline. I know it
has helped him to excel academically, especially in math. He is signed
up for college math in his junior year of high school." she said.
"Stephen is a very talented and hard working student, and we are
proud of his accomplishments at the academy," said Dickson.

When Jake arrived at the
shelter he had heartworms.
Thanks to a very wonderful
foster family who offered
their home, Jake has recov-
ered from the treatment and
is now ready for adoption..
Jake is great with kids, how-
ever, he thinks cats are
squeaky toys, so no homes
with cats. His foster family
wrote the following, which
says it all:
"Jake is a GREAT dog. I
hope the next dog you send
home with me is like Jake.
But then again, Jake will
always be even more special


to us because he is our first
foster and already we've felt
humbled by this big red dog
who has come so far and
overcome so much already.
You and the shelter gave
him a second chance and
my family and I have been
blessed to have been able to
spend time and gotten to
know Jake and to have
been the bridge that he
needed before going on
to a better life. Sincerely,
Melissa Day."
If you are interested in
adopting Jake, please call

TRAINING TO MAKE WISHES COME TRUE

On June 25 the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and
Northern Florida will host a Wish Granting Training Session for vol-
unteers in the Northeast Florida Region from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with
life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience
with hope. strength and joy. It currently has children in area commu-
nities that are waiting to have their wishes granted. The training ses-
sion will teach the volunteers how to determine the child's one true
wish, different wish granting techniques, policies and guidelines, and
how to grant the actual wish.
Wish Granters work directly with the children and their families to
make wishes come true. These specially trained volunteers make
the wish an unforgettable experience through creativity and imagina-
tion. Wish Granters volunteer their time around their own schedule
and typically give one hour per week.
To register for the class, RSVP for the location, and other volun-
teer opportunities, contact Richard Bock at (407) 622-4673. ext. 201,
or by e-mail at rjbock@wishcentral.org.
