SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
An 18-year-old Nassauville man
was taken to Shands Jacksonville
,Monday after a rattlesnake bit him.
Brandon McClellan is listed in
critical condition.
"He has been fighting for his
life," said McClellan's mother, Pam'

Nassau County Fire-Rescue Lt.
Scott Hemmingway said McClellan
was in an open
barn when he

Hemmingway McClellan
said.
The incident
happened about 12:30 p.m.. at
McClellan's 1564 Steven Road res-
idence.
Nassau County Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper said large amounts
of rain could drive snakes to drier
ground, closer to people.
"It's something people need to
be aware of, with all the rain we've
been having," Cooper said. "Snakes
come up to higher ground."
Cooper said the snake was
killed by authorities and taken to
the hospital, where it was identi-
fied as a timber rattlesnake
The snake was approximately
five feet long.
McClellan was bitten on his
lower left leg. His mother said the
bite was near a major artery in his
leg, and he suffered an allergic
reaction to the bite.
Pam McClellan said her son has
been stabilized, although doctors
have warned her he's not out of
the woods.

national firefighting guidelines for
responding to a house fire for a
structure of a few thousand square
feet, Fernandina Beach Fire Chief
Danny Leeper said.
"In reviewing our response plan,
with a full crew on duty, no other
calls and receiving mutual aid from
the county, we can have 13 fire-
fighters on the scene," he said, one
person short of meeting standards.
Mutual aid is when an agency or
department responds to an emer-


with depleted resources or limit-
ed expertise. Leeper said.
"So if we have two people off
on leave, the rescue unit (which
also carries trained firefighters) on
a medical call. the chief officer is
out of town and Nassau County
cannot respond," he said, "we can
only have six firefighters on the
scene." That response would be
two fire personnel below the city's
ordinance and eight below the
national and state recommenda-


lls


to city and county fire-rescue, "we
can't rely on the mutual aid," he
said. Rescue frequency is increas-
ing because of the age of the pop-
ulation. The area of coverage is
expanding due to annexation. And
risk is increasing because of multi-
family high-rises.
The city needs to decide how
long it can function with a "staffing
crisis" until a solution is found,

News-Leader
Summertime fun can turn
tragic in only a moment when a
drowning occurs and this hap-
pens all too frequently, with
drowning as the second leading
cause of injury-related death for
children ages 1-14.
Adults, too, can get into big
trouble in the water, especially in
the ocean, where undercurrents
can trap even very good swim-
mers.
Often, swimmers are overcon-
fident and ignore safety meas-
ures, relying on their ability alone
to bypass danger. A big mistake!
We are all vulnerable to fatigue,
cramps, rip currents and under-
estimation of distance. As for chil-
dren, remember that teaching
your child how to swim does not
mean that he or she is safe in
water.
Always swim with another
competent swimmer. In my scout-
ing days at summer camp, we
were taught to observe the
"buddy system," which means
that swimming partners stay
close to each other and constant-
ly aware of each other. Also,
always have someone on land
keeping a close watch.
Air-filled water toys such as
plastic rings, water wings, plastic
rafts or mattresses are just that -
toys. They are not designed to be
life preservers, and it is danger-
ous to depend on0 them. Non-
swimmers should not use them in
water beyond a depth wheie they,
can stand up, and swimmers
must be sure not to float on them
farther than they can easily swim
back to shore unassisted.
Know how to give cardio-
pulmonary resuscitation (CPR),
and make sure there is a phone
nearby or have the persons)
watching carry a cell phone. At
the beach, it's wise to swim in an
area protected by a lifeguard.
Don't take chances swim-

FOR THE RECORD


!!L ming in
AF storm-
churned
= y water, or if
' .there is light-
ening. Also,
notice safety
signs and
swim only when conditions are
posted as safe.
Many small children drown
in home swimming pools each
year. All pools are required to
have a 5-foot fence around their
four sides, with gate latches taller
than a child, and self-closing
latches. Again, a supervising
adult must be present at all times
when children are in the pool. Do
not leave to answer a phone, or
any other reason.
It is not safe to use alcohol
before or during swimming, boat-
ing or water skiing. Teenagers
especially need to learn about the
dangers of alcohol and water
sports.
In a pool or lake, know how
deep the water is before jumping
or diving in. The American Red
Cross recommends a depth of at
least 9 feet for diving. This rules
out diving in above-ground pools.
It is easy to choke on chew-
ing gum during water activities,
so don't use it then.
If you feel really cold, get
out of the water, especially if toes
or fingers look blue or feel numb.
When boating, children
should wear U.S. Coast Guard
approved life jackets, and the
boat should be equipped with
USCG approved flotation devices.
If, in spite of precautions, a
drowning should occur and it has
been established that the person
is not breathing, begin CPR
immediately while someone calls
911. If the heart has stopped beat-
ing, correctly done chest com-
pressions to start the heart is the
first priority. Every minute with-
out oxygen makes recovery less
likely.

Demand increases for


county fire protection


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The Fernandina Beach Com-
mission has given an unofficial
endorsement to the idea of com-
bining its fire-rescue services with
Nassau County.
Growth on Amelia Island, par-
ticularly on the southern end,
necessitates expanded fire pro-
tection, city commissioners have
said.
The same is true in Nassau
County, said County Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper.
"We're already 2,000 calls
over last year's calls for
service," Cooper said. "Demand
for service has defini, yv
increased."
But there have been no dis-
cussions about consolidation
among county officials, he said,
adding, "Anything is an option" in
the future.
To meet the increasing
demand, Nassau County relies
on mutual aid from surrounding
municipalities, such as Camden
and Duval counties, in addition to
Fernandina Beach, to meet cov-
erage standards, Cooper said.
"We all take care of each other.
It causes us all to have to talk to
each other more," he said. "We
stay in great communication."


CITY Continued from 1A
Leeper said.
"If there's a standard level of
service, we have to identify what
level of risk we're willing to
accept."
The city's application to the
U.S. Department of Homeland
Security will request three fire
personnel "to assure adequate
protection from fire;and related
hazards." The federally funded
SAFER (Staffing for Adequate
Fire and Emergency Response)
grant provides a, maximum
$100,000 per position contribu-
tion, distributed over four
years, with the federal contribu-
tion decreasing annually as the
local matching requirement
increases.
If the grant is awarded and the
city commission approves accept-
ance, the city's matching funds
would be $13,869 the first year
and $122,000 by year five.
The grant proposal prepared
by the city would save tihe tax-
payers $300,000 to $500,000 a year,
City Manager Bob Mearns said.
"What we're talking about here
.. is a larger issue than three
firefighters," Mearns said, noting
that at least 250 new homes in the
southwest part of the city will
impact the cost of maintaining lev-i
els of service.
"If we need eight firefighters in
10 years, we're going to get three
with the help of the federal gov-
ernment," he said.
Commissioners will have an'

"He's possibly got a rough road
ahead," she said.-
Still, she said she believes he
can recover. McClellan said sup-
port from friends and the hospital
staff is helping the family through
a difficult time.
"He's strong, he's 18, he's a big
kid, he's tough," she said. "... He is
such a good kid, and everybody
loves him."

Nassau County Fire-Rescue
frequently provides aid to Duval
County, Cooper said.
"Our Bryceville trucks
respond into Baldwin for
Jacksonville," he said, noting, "It's
not uncommon for all West Side
rescue units to be in the hospital
in Jacksonville at the same time."
Nassau County's aid to
Fernandina Beach is automatic,
Cooper said, because the county
can gain quicker access to certain
areas than the city.
But because county firefight-
ers also respond to medical calls,
fire-rescue resources still risk
becoming exhausted.
"Every fire engine in Nassau
County is the same as a rescue
unit," Cooper said, explaining that
fire-rescue often arrives at the
scene of a medical emergency
before rescue units. Fire engines
carry medical supplies and
"everything on it except the
stretcher," he said.
Consolidating services would
have advantages, Cooper said.
"In my job the biggest benefit
is, when someone dials 9-1-1 (and)
we're capable of responding," he
said. "When someone has a med-
ical emergency, they don't care
what patch you have on or what
truck you're driving."

opportunity to review the city's
strategic plan "to analyze and eval-
uate whether in fact this is advan-
tageous to the city in terms of
future growth," Mearns said..
"If we're approved we have to
come back before you with the
proper documentation and justifi-
cation for this personnel," Leeper
said.
But commissioners already
have strong ideas about how to
address the problem.
"To me the logical thing would
be to take over the fire station on.
the south end and let the city pro-
vide that," Commissioner Joe
Gerrity said.
"It would be a good ideato take
over the south end" fire-rescue
department, Commissioner Bill
Leeper agreed. 'That way, the
county could utilize those people
(firefighters) elsewhere."
'"We did request to discuss that
with the county commission,"
Mearns said. "They're not ready to
discuss that at this time."
The sThsfolifoi is islandwide
police and fire 'protection,'*
Commissioner Beano Roberts
said, calling it "ammunition" for
capitalizing on dual taxation. "Itt
certainlyis ... to their (county res-
idents') economic benefit and to
our economic benefit to do that"

COUNTY Continued from 1A
on AlA.
Marshall did not vote for that
original agreement two years
ago, and has since vowed not to
vote for anything involving the
Amelia Concourse or its develop-
ments.
But now that the project is mil-
lions over budget and a stop-work
order is halting the road's con-
struction, the landowners and the
commission have been trying to
hash out a new agreement.
At the latest round of negotia-
tions, the landowners said Monday
they would now pay 75 percent of
the transportation impact fee.
That concession was applauded
by commissioners Tom Branan and,
Jim Higginbotham as a "strong
move forward."
However, before the commis-
sion voted to insert the change into
the agreement, Marshall made a
motion to hold the developers
responsible for 100 percent of the
impact fee.
That was seconded by
Commissioner Floyd Vanzant, and
Commission Chair Ansley Acree
cast the deciding vote.
Higginbotham and Branan voted
against it.
Speaking for the landowners,
Bruce Jasinsky and Mitchell
Montgomery said they would not
agree to pay the entire impact fee.
"Tomorrow we start negotia-,
tions all over again," Jasinsky said.
"This accomplishes nothing."
The landowners left in silence
Monday and declined comment
after the meeting. Higginbotham
and Branan also declined comment
"There's a pretty good chance
we'll end up in court,"
Higginbotham said as the com-
mission adjourned.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said what it amounts to is
the landowners offered to pay about
$1 million more in impact fees, and

the county counter-offered by ask-
ing for about $2 million.
"I think they'll be back on
Thursday and they'll either agree to
100 percent (impact fees) or they'll
proceed however they want."
When asked if that meant taking
the negotiations to court, Mahane.y
said that was up to the developers.
"(The landowners) said, We're
back to square one,' so you inter-
pret that anyway you want,"
Mahaney said.
Both Acree and Vanzant
approved the original developer's
agreement for 50 percent impact
fees in 2003, but Acree said she
now feels that was too sweet a deal
for the developers.
"We're not asking for a whole
lot considering the impact this
has on the whole county," Acree
said.
Also included in the agreements
considered Monday was a letter of
credit for more than $13 million to
cover the concourse's total con-
struction cost, and legal safeguards
to prevent either the county or the
homeowners from paying for the
cost overruns.
The homeowners are still
expected to contribute about $8 mil-
lion for the road construction over
10 years.
Construction has been halted
since April, and the concourse is
millions over budget with an esti-
mated cost of less than $8 million
already rising to more than $13 mil-
lion.

who saw a column of smoke com-
ing from the home.
Smith was on her way home
when she saw fire engines head-
ing toward Nassauville. Not know-
ing they were going to her house,
she pulled over to let them pass
and kept driving. It wasn't until
she went to pull into her driveway
that she realized what had hap-
pened.
Authorities believe the fire
started in the attic, according to a
report from Nassau County Fire-
Rescue.
Firefighters from Nassau
.County Fire-Rescue- and the
Nassauville Volunteer Fire
Department arrived at the scene
around 4:20 p.m.
Nassau County Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper said the house was
burning for an "undetermined
amount of time" before anyone
realized it was on fire.
Roger A. Henderson, a fire
investigator for Nassau County
Fire-Rescue, said the cause of the,
fire might have been electrical.
The official cause is listed as unde-
termined, Henderson said,
because so much evidence .was
destroyed by the blaze.
Smith's dog was inside the


house when the fire started. The
dog was later found dead inside
the garage of the home.
"She was so good, she was a
great dog," Smith said. According
to the fire report, the dog died of
smoke inhalation.
Altogether, the fire caused
approximately $464,100 damage,
including the home and the items
inside. According to the fire
report, the house was full of
antiques.
Cooper said some items did
survive the fire.
'We were lucky to be able to
save whatever we did save," he
said.
Smith is staying with friends
in the area and a fund has been set
up to help her.
Smith said she's thankful for
the support she has in family and
friends.
"Everybody's been kind to
me," she said. 'The firemen,
they were the greatest, I could
see them working so hard ..
and I have some wonderful
friends."

LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
Nassau County has its first mit-
igation bank.
Longleaf Mitigation President
Bill Schroeder told Greater Nassau
County Chamber of Commerce
members in May that his company
owns the first mitigation bank in
the county.
Schroeder said that in addition
to finalizing a planned unit devel-
opment (PUD) called Tupelo
Plantation near Bryceville, his com-
pany owns several thousand acres
between Callahan and Bryceville.
"And, one of the things 'that
we've done 'very quickly' is we
have permitted a 3,000-acre miti-
gation bank, that is about four
miles south of here, right off (U.S.)
301, off Crawford Road,;" he said.
"And this property in perpetuity
will never be developed," said
Schroeder.
He said the property was pur-
chased from the International
Paper Co., and so, in essence, is a
pine plantation.
"We will cut all the pine trees
and restore it to its hammock state.
I'm sure there are some people in
the room that might remember
what the land looked like 60 years
ago. That's what this property will
be," he said.
Schroeder said that in exchange

Woehrle speaks with Bill Schroeder, of Longleaf Mitigation,
about a mitigation bank in Nassau County.


for doing that, the St. Johns River
Water Management District, U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers and sev-
eral other regulatory agencies will
allow the company to sell what are
called "mitigation credits" to any-
body who is developing wetlands.


Mitigation credit offsets the
development of wetlands by pre-
serving wetlands elsewhere.
"And since Nassau County, I
can probably say with authority, is
50 percent comprised of wetlands,
for anybody that wants to try and


develop anything here, the miti-
gation of wetlands is a pretty sig-
nificant cost in your development,"
he added.
The company will sell credit to
private developers and public agen-
cies, including Nassau County, as
it needs credits from the Florida
Department of Transportation for
road projects, Schroeder said.
Schroeder said it is a "very cre-
ative" project.
The company's other project,
Tupelo Plantation, "is contiguous to
our mitigation bank," Schroeder
said.
"We are in the process of final-
izing the PUD and we hope to do
that soon. It's 1,400 acres in which
we will do 64 lots. It will be an
equestrian preservation commu-
nity. It is an attempt to, what we
hope to think is a creative quality
project in thisend of the county, for
people that have a horse or preser-
vation interest," said Schroeder
He said the company dug an 8-
acre lake on the property and all
the fill dirt went into the AIA road-
widening project.
"We gave that dirt away. So,
hopefully the county got the benefit
of that through their DOT contract,
because we did not charge for that
fill," he said.
For more information about
either project, call (904) 421-3625
or (904) 536-3386.

Best Friends Card and Gift
Shop, previously located at 1853
Eighth St. and before that in the
Wal-Mart shopping center on the
island, has a new home.
"We needed to be in a place
convenient to walk-in traffic," said
owner/manager Bucky Munch.
Now located at 1411 Sadler Road,
next to the UPS store in the Island
Walk Shopping Center, the store
has increased visibility along with
convenience for shoppers.
Best Friends is a longtime
favorite of those looking for cards
and party goods at attractive
prices. "Everything is good qual-
ity at prices that surprise people,"
says Munch, who also coordinates
decorations for parties, makes
silk flower arrangements to order
for weddings and special occa-


sions, and wraps gifts.
Munch also advises customers
on ways to save money, yet end
up with a well-planned and beau-
tiful party. For example, with
napkins, plates and accessories
she suggests mixing prints with
coordinating solids, which cost
less. Her motto for party planning
is "elegance at an affordable
price."
"I'm old-fashioned when it
comes to service," she says. "I
like the personal touch, and get-
ting to know my customers. And,
whenever time allows, I like to do
a little something extra for them.
That's what distinguishes my
business from the superstores."
In addition to cards and party
supplies, Best Friends carries
beautiful wrapping paper, Russ-
brand stuffed animals and a large
variety of small personal gifts.

Eminent domain powers boosted


A pair of perplexing deci-

has left some city resi-
dents in a state of
uncertainty.
Both decisions directly or indi-
rectly involve the controversial
issue of eminent domain. Plain
and simple, this is the taking of
private property (your house, for
instance) by elected officials who
feel there is a better, broader use
for it one that benefits the pub-
lic.

that the CRA

expanded to
include private houses in down-
town, as was the original plan.
Officials could then seize private
houses and businesses in down-
town and bulldoze them, for
instance, to create a structure for
the public good. A multi-story
condominium that generates a
bunch of tax dollars might be to '
the liking of a cash-strapped
municipality.
City officials say they will not

However, they certainly can-

And they cannot ensure home-

something like this could never
happen. What you can say for cer-

groundwork.
This fear was crystallized by a

increases in Florida


University of Florida
Florida's consumer confidence
jumped in June, reflecting tempo-
rary reductions in gasoline prices
and gains in the stock market,
University of Florida economists
report.
The biggest gain was in expec-
tations about the U.S. economy
over the next year. The remain-
ing four components of the index
also rose.
"The gains this month were
largely unexpected," said Chris
McCarty, director of the survey
research center at UF's Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research. "There is no doubt that
Florida's consumers are much
more optimistic this month.
"Much of the rise in confidence
can be attributed to a temporary
reduction in gasoline prices, as
well as temporary gains in the
stock market," he said. "Both have


FLEET & ASSOCIATES
A consultant for the city of Fernandina Beach envisioned this "mixed use" of residential and
commercial development on private property north of the city marina on the Amelia River water-
front. City commissioners approved a Community Redevelopment Area last week but did not
endorse the consultant's sketches and agreed that the CRA would not be used to finance
improvements on private property.


went all the way to the Supreme
Court The ruling is considered a
major victory for planning and
development officials every-
where.
It was a classic battle of resi-
dents versus city officials (taxpay-
ers against tax collectors). New
London officials contended the
riverfront project would help
boost a sagging tax base, and
therefore it qualified as an eco-
nomic development project. Thus,
they had a right to enforce the
eminent-domain procedure.
The CRA in Fernandina
Beach, as it now stands, does not
include downtown houses. It ,


entails 56 properties, many vacant
or in need of repair. Opponents
had defeated the CRA last year,
but it miraculously resurfaced
this summer with a new facade.
It is likely the fight over emi-
nent domain will now return to
state courts. It is stated clearly in
the Constitution that private prop-
erty may be taken by the govern-
ment if fair compensation is paid
to the owner, but it must be for
"public use."
This is where the gray area
lies. As long as there are property
owners clinging to their rights,
and developers looking for new
ventures, and elected officials

hitting $60 a barrel, and the stock
market falling below 10,300."
In other positive news, home
sales have been quite active this
month, but the average price of
homes has begun to stabilize and
in some places started to fall slight-
ly, McCarty said.
"Moving forward, we expect
consumer confidence in July to
fall somewhat as the price of gaso-
line will start to reflect the rising
cost of oil and will be bid up, as is
normal, by summer travelers," he
said. "We also expect recent loss-
es in the stock market to be reflect-
ed in the index."
Much of the gain in Florida's
consumer confidence for June was
from households making more
than $30,000 a year, McCarty said.
There also was a large gain in the
index for Floridians aged 60 and
older.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY. JUNE 29.2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Socialist mentality
A couple of recent News-Leader
editorials have had the spiteful tone
of a socialist mentality.
The June 3 editorial was enti-
tled, "Keep the boat ramp open,"
referring to the boat ramp at the
city marina. I agreed with the
thrust of this editorial. However,
there was one sentence in the
piece that particularly -bothered
me. "Are we doing this for the peo-
ple of Fernandina, or for visiting
yachtsmen in multimillion-dollar
vessels?"
The June 22 editorial was enti-
tled, "Don't annex Crane Island." I
don't agree with the thrust of this
editorial, but the reasons for my
disagreement don't fit the purpose
of this letter. Again there was one
sentence in this piece that partic-
ularly bothered me: "Annexation
will require current city residents
to subsidize the rich homeowners
who will live on the island west of
the city airport."
Focus on, if you will, "visiting
yachtsmen in multimillion dollar
vessels" and "the rich homeowners
who will live on the island."
Disdain for the wealthy from
any quarter does nothing to
enhance my quality of life. In fact,
it hurts it. The taxes the wealthy
pay ease my tax load and, for that,
I am appreciative. When has it
become wrong to be "rich" in this
great country of ours if wealth has


been honestly accumulated? I
resent the snideness buried in
these recent editorials. And I'm
not even "rich" dollar-wise!
Further, such snideness does noth-
ing to nurture the cohesion of our
island community.

missioner.

Whattheydo
There was a time in Nassau
County when only Democrats
could be elected to county political
offices. Now the opposite is true
because all our current county
commissioners are Republicans.
Being a conservative Republican I
thought having all-Republican
county commissioners would be
good for the county. All of our com-
missioners may be Republicans
but at least four of them certainly
are not conservative.
Conservatives have certain
beliefs that they-will not compro-
mise. Conservatives are never in
favor of tax increases.
Conservatives would not increase
gas taxes or any other tax. Tax
cuts have stimulated the economy
every time they have been tried.
Conservatives believe that the cit-
izens should be allowed to keep
and spend most of their money.
These elected officials apparently


believe that they can spend our
money more wisely than we can.
The next time you overload your
credit cards irresponsibly, ask your
boss for a raise so you can pay the

Dunes vs. development
On one of my return trips home
to Fernandina Beach I drove out to
Peters Point. While standing there
and looking at the million-dollar
condos under construction, I
remembered back to my youth
when driving on dunes was made
illegal by our city and county
fathers because such activity would
cause sever damage to the dune
structure.
I found it ironic to note that a
sign had been placed between the
construction area and the beach
access at Peters Point that read,
"environmental sensitive area, no
foot traffic."
The inhabitants of the island

Fiscal responsibility
First I'd like to thank
Commissioner Marianne Marshall
for her vote of No on the gas tax
and to send my condolences to her
for having to work with the rest of
those "commissioners." What's
next? A "fire tax" to pay for the
unnecessary paid fire personnel
that were hired by that bunch? The
West Side of the county doesn't
need ("need" being the operative
word) paid fire personnel to fight
our fires. The volunteers were
doing a fine job of keeping things
under control and then someone
made the decision that Nassau
County should operate its fire
department like Duval County
does. Who was that rocket scien-"
tist?
Where are Chris Kirkland and


all the other commissioners of old
who knew what they were doing
and who knew the meaning of fis-
cal responsibility?
Sherilyn Nantz
Hilliard

Rather pay the tax
While I do not relish the
thought of having to pay more
taxes, I do agree with
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham that we need to
fund for better fire service and
price it according to services deliv-
ered.
I was initially happy to learn
when I moved from Jacksonville
to West Nassau in 2000 that my
home property tax was much less
but soon found that my home-
owners' insurance would be almost
doubled from a comparable home
in Jacksonville because of the ISO
rating. This rating is a function of
fulltime versus volunteer servic-
es, the placement or existence of
fire hydrants and the distance from
the home to the station.
In addition to distance those of
us living west of the CSX railroad
as it crosses Hilliard have the fur-
ther problem of emergency serv-
ices being blocked by a train. I
would'dther paj the tax' which'
should be eligible for a federal
income tax deduction, to get better


fire and rescue services than pay it
to the insurance company because
of the increased risk.
Tom Taylor
Hilliard

Pets are family
I so agree with Pat Quattlebaum
("Pure-bred dogs," June 17) as to
the health and well-being of the
animals being sold at a local, store.
Is anyone concerned that the peo-
ple buying these puppies often can-
not afford to take care of them?.
What if they become sick and need
medical treatment can they pay for
it? If not, how long will it be allowed
to suffer before it dies?
I had our loving pet of 14 years
put down due to illness so she
would not suffer will these own-
ers be able to do the same? I just
want everyone to consider the
commitment of time and money
you must-make in order to take
care of this ndw family member
because they truly are a family
member once you bring them
home.
I would also like to thank Dr.
Jamie Dunn and the wonderful
staff at 4 Paws for all you did for my
Susie. We will still be bringing

EDITORIAL


It's time for


Mearns to go

W e reported, in a front-page story April
14, 2004, that the city might allow
taller, wider homes on the beach. A
week later, we argued against such
action in an editorial titled "Bigger is not better."
The city's Planning Advisory Board subse-
quently considered, but did not adopt changes in
city code to allow bigger homes. Nor did the city
commission adopt such a proposal.
But city officials began to approve larger
homes anyway, claiming that city codes were
unclear or contradictory. They are not.
The city's chief planner found that three hous-
es under construction on South Fletcher Avenue
are in violation of code. They are too tall and too
close to neighbors, agreed an architect hired by
the city to review ordinances governing building
height and property setback.
Yet these overly large houses will be built any-
way because the city had already issued building
permits for them. A judge ruled last week that the
property owners should be allowed to proceed
with construction because they in good faith .
replied on the-city's judgmentewhen i jssieid ths "
permits.
It would be easy to make a scapegoat of the
city building department, which issued the per-
mits. But it is time to place blame where it
belongs.
In planning and development matters, City
Manager Bob Mearns has consistently thwarted
the will of the city planning department, planning
board, city commissioners and public.
From approval of the Isle de Mai subdivision
on Simmons Road to ill-considered redevelopment
of the city marina and waterfront, Mearns has
failed to honor the public will. But responsibility
for these failings never sticks to our Teflon city
manager, instead falling on the planners and oth-
ers he has sacked or blamed for his shortcom-
ings.
The South Fletcher houses are the last straw.
Mearns endorsed what the architect consult-
ant called a "creative" interpretation of city code in
issuing the building permits. He defended those
permits even after planning board members, then-
mayor Greg Roland, this newspaper and the pub-
lic cried foul.
Construction continued for seven weeks after
the city manager became aware of concerns about
the homes before he finally issued a stop-work
order. That failure to act promptly gave legal cre-
dence to the property owner's complaint. In his
deposition and by his actions, Mearns proved to
be the best witness for the property owner, forc-
ing the city to defend itself against its own city
manager.
What a spectacle: The city manager versus the
chief planner, again. Former chief planner Bob
Jarzen resigned two years ago over "philosophical
differences" with Mearns. Former chief planner
Anne Catinna was fired by Mearns last year.
Current chief planner Lupita McClenning appar-
ently can't persuade her boss to follow city code.
It is time for a change and we don't mean hir-
ing a new planner. It is evident that the problem is
not in the planning department, but.in the office
of the city manager.
Therefore, we call on Mearns to resign. Failing
that, we call on the city commission to oust him.
We do not believe Mearns shares the public's
vision of what our town should be. In fact, we do
not believe he cares what the public vision is.
Rather, he does what he wishes, and when caught,
changes course, deflects responsibility and seeks
another avenue to accomplish his purpose.
It is past time for accountability at City Hall.
The city manager must be held responsible. Once
an asset, Mearns has become a liability.
It is time for him to move on.

Putting the county back on track


Recent news articles about growth and the
county's financial needs have promoted
much discussion and debate in how county
government should be funded. In all of this
debate about growth and finances, one thing is cer-
tain: with growth comes change.
During the graduations this spring I was fortu-
nate to have the opportunity to listen to a speech by
the salutatorian at Hilliard Senior High School. The
gem of wisdom from this young graduate was this,
"with change comes responsibility." Certainly this
advice is appropriate for all of our graduates, but it is
also appropriate for each of us as citizens of this
county.
In January I was invited by Clerk of Court John
Crawford to participate in the Citizen's Budget
Policy Reform Committee. This group began meet-
ing in January with the mission to recommend budg-
et and financial policies to the Board of County
Commissioners that would ensure citizen priorities
and interests were directly represented in the coun-
ty's budget formulation and management processes.
The primary goal of this committee was to formulate
budget and financial policies that would ensure
Nassau County's long-term solvency, and protect the
interests of taxpayers.
The diverse group of citizens representing all
parts of the county debated many issues, and
reached consensus on 23 recommendations. These
recommendations were presented to county com-
missioners in May for consideration, review and
adoption as a draft ordinance. The members of the
group felt this was an important first step in getting
our county's financial needs back on track.
Most of the policy recommendations were cen-
tered on the general budget
1. The county shall adopt a "revenue-driven"
budget philosophy where expenditures are to
accommodate expected revenues with existing mill-
age rates serving as the beginning reference point
The significance of this recommendation is to keep
expenses under control. Certainly most households
are managed according to weekly or monthly
income and households that budget by expenses will
soon be insolvent.
2. Recurring expenditures shall not be funded
by non-recurring revenue sources. This would be
the equivalent of paying your telephone bill out of
savings each month; eventually the savings account
will be depleted
3. Year-to-year budget adjustments (if any) shall
not exceed the general Consumer Price Index for
the preceding calendar year, excluding new con-
struction. This limitation shall not apply to mandated
expenditures required by voters, courts, state or fed-
eral legislation or special taxing districts. This policy
recommendation is aimed at protecting the taxpay-
ers from extreme increases in property taxes.
4. Reserves for contingencies shall be budget-
ed to attain or maintain a specific percent of expendi-
tures, excluding reserves each budget year, as allow-
able by Florida Statute. The purpose of this
recommendation is to build up the reserves for con-
tingencies. These funds would be used is cases of
hurricanes or other unexpected problems. The
citizens committee intentionally left the percent

COMMUNITY THANKS


We are blessed
' Conducting 30 concerts in three weeks as the
Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival accomplished
this season is like putting on 30 large parties! But
with a few additional details like how to get a piano to
the second-floor barracks at Fort Clinch. And, yes, the
piano made it safely, ready for pianist Elizabeth Pridgen
to perform flawlessly!
After living in Fernandina Beach for five years,
this season was my first full festival experience and
it's from that of an insider, one of the more than 150
volunteers who make this magical, musical experi-
ence happen. I was transported by the performances
and amazed by the festival logistics.
Literally dozens of teams gear up nearly a year in
advance to prepare for this seasonal event The mar-,
keting and publicity team sat on met in November to
plan the festival's publications, including our Bravo!
newsletter, the annual poster and brochures.
Writers and designers sorted through ideas, dead-
lines were met, and, seemingly as quickly, new ones
appeared. We found the challenges were stimulating


and rewarding.
Other volunteers dealt with operations, the nuts
and bolts of putting on a festival of this magnitude, from
the smallest detail to the broadest of strokes.
The production teams solved logistical issues like
lighting, seating, ticketing, flowers, music stands,
venue selection and musicians' transportation and
housing.
And more volunteers met with sponsors and local
residents, raising the necessary funding. A golf tour-
nament was held to defray costs of the five free con-
certs, a C-Note drawing was conceived, and festival sup-
porters, old and new, eagerly provide the backing we
needed to make it all happen.
To our community members who support the fes-
tival with your resources, your talents, your enthusi-
asm, and your labors, thank you. Thank you to our
community newspapers which have covered the fes-
tival, telling residents and visitors what to expect,
experience and enjoy, where and how to get tickets,
and what performance will be when and where. As a
new festival participant, I am amazed.
I sat with my photographer/friend Susan Casillas


at the Fort Clinch Candelight Concert "Spirit and
Spirtuals" Memorial Day eve, and again later that
week at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church to hear
the Ritz Chamber Players perform.
I met Terrence Patterson, Ritz Chamber Music
Society artistic director, and learned that the group
frequently performs outreach concerts in schools
and provides music camp scholarships in addition to
their Jacksonville concerts and plans to return to
Carnegie Hall next year. And they will be back next
year!
I am wowed by the talent How fortunate we are to
have a festival of this caliber occur on our small island.
Amelia Island has indeed more than just its size in
common with Manhattan.
Our island continues to attract topnotch talent the
likes of festival artistic director Christopher Rex and
his following of marvelous musicians, the spirit of
community, which not only enjoys the events, but also
makes them possible for all to enjoy. We are indeed
blessed!

Height ordinance


changes could lead


to larger houses
MICHAEL PARNELL Thec am
News Leaderhety


The city's Pl:miiinni Advisory
Board is scheduled to hold a spe-
cialmeetingTtin ,,l., t. dis,-uss
proposed changes in the ciiy's
building height ordinance that
would allow larger homes to be
built in the city.
The planning board will con-
sider two proposals to alter ordi-
nances regarding building height
and setbacks from neighboring
properties.
Both would reduce the set-
back from neighboring proper-
ties now required and allow wider
homes.
Now, houses must be set back
from neighboring properties by
an additional foot above the min-
imum required by zoning for each
foot over 20 feet in height.
The proposal to be considered
Thursday would change, that to
half a foot for every foot over 25
feet in height That means hous-
es could be wider than they are
now as much as five feet wider
- with more mass.
The planning staff also has
recommended measuring build-
ing height from the finished (post-
construction) grade to the high-
est point of the roof.
Consultant Gail Easley has
proposed measuring height from
natural (pre-construction) grade
to the highest point on the roof.
In either case, for the purpos-


ming

es of determining setback, build-
ing height would no longer be
measured to the mid-point
between the highest point of the
roof and the lowest eave of the
roof.
Perceived difficulty in meas-
uring that mid-point led to con-
struction of three controversial
houses on South Fletcher Avenue
that were too tall or too close to
neighboring properties.
The new building height ordi-
nance is intended to eliminate
confusion in measuring height
and setbacks. It is part of an over-
haul of the city land use regula-
tions that has been ongoing for
the past year.
Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners are scheduled to meet in
joint session next month with the
planning board to discuss pro-
posed changes in land use regu-
lations, including the building
height proposal.
The new ordinances would
then be adopted by the city com-
mission after public hearings.

Slavery begot black church


University ofFlorida


GAINESVIILE -As blacks and
others celebrated Juneteenth this
month, the role of the church in
the emancipation of the slaves was
not forgotten.
A new book by a University of
Florida history professor explores
the origins of the black Protestant
church in America through the life
of an 18th-century former slave
named Rebecca Protten, who con-
verted to Christianity and later
became a missionary. Juneteenth,
observed on June 19, commemo-
rates when the last slaves in
America were freed in Texas in
1865.
Because of their living condi-
tions, many slaves looked to the
church for reassurance and the
possibility of a better life after
death.
The church also was the one
place a slave could express himself
or herself freely without the fear of
punishment or death.
In his book, Rebecca's Revival,
professor John Sensbach argues
that Protten's conversion to
Christianity and preaching efforts
among enslaved workers helped '
lay the groundwork for what would
become the black church more
than a century
before emancipation in the United
States.
"We know that the black church
is the vessel of African-American
culture and has been for several


'The black church is the vessel ofAfrican-American
culture and has been for several centuries.'

AUTHOR OF REBECCA'S REVIA'


centuries," said Sensbach, who
began researching Protten and her
connection with the black church
in 2001.
"The more I began to look at
her, I realized that she was a
very important figure who can
help us to understand this larger
issue."
Sensbach found information on
Protten's life in records kept by
the missionaries and writers from
her time, translating them from
German, Dutch and Danish.
Through those records, he found
that Protten was born around
1718 of mixed racial descent and
was sold into slavery in the Danish
colony of St. Thomas in the pres-
ent-day U.S. Virgin Islands.
"There, the records say she had
a religious experience, when she
was very young, perhaps in early
adolescence," said Sensbach,
whose book was published in
March. "She was freed by her mas-
ter and began to preach to women
on her plantation around the same
time."
In 1733, missionaries from the
German Moravian church began


preaching to the St. Thomas slaves,
and Protten became immersed in
the movement, Sensbach said.
"She went to meet the mis-
sionaries on the island, and they
realized she was already a preach-.
er," he said. "She was exactly what
they were looking for, so she joined
their movement and became a
missionary to the enslaved
women."
Sensbach added that Protten's
involvement was crucial because
the Germans did not know the
language of the Caribbean islands
and had a hard time reaching
out to the slaves, who spoke a
mixture of Dutch and African
tongues.
"They depended on converts
like Protten and others to join the
movement to the plantations and
recruit slaves," he said. "It became
an indigenous movement to con-
vert to Christianity that Protten
and other black preachers helped
spread."
Through his research,
Sensbach found that Christianity
became prominent in black society
because it was a religion of empow-


erment and spiritual freedom that
sustained them through the rav-
ages of racism and slavery.
"Her life is important in a cou-
ple of ways," Sensbach said. "She
was an essential figure in generat-
ing the movement that would
lead to the spread of black evan-
gelical Protestant Christianity
throughout the Americas. Second,
her life was unique in that it was
virtually impossible for a black
woman to make the travels she
made."
Up to Protten's time, there were
many black Christians in Europe,
Africa and the Americas, but most
were Catholic because Protestants
had had little success converting
people of African descent,
Sensbach said. When the
evangelical German missionaries
arrived on St Thomas, they were
on the forefront of trying to emu-
late what the Catholics had
done.
As a result, they established a
beachhead through the efforts of
Protten and others like her, making
possibly thousands of converts in
one corner of the Caribbean.
"This proved inspiring to the
other Protestant evangelicals like
Baptists, Methodists and
Presbyterians who looked at this
experiment," Sensbach said. "So
they sent out missionaries in North
America, during a time that's
known as the Great Awakening,
when the origins of the black
church in North America began."

GAINESVILLE New Florida
homes withstood last year's four
hurricanes better than their older
counterparts thanks in large
measure to continued improve-
ments in the state's hurricane
building code, say University of
Florida engineers.
UF engineering researchers
have completed one of the most
extensive studies of how homes
built before and after Florida's lat-
est building code held up against
Charley, Frances, Jeanne and Ivan.


Their conclusion: Homes built
under the Florida Building Code
that became effective in 2002 sus-
tained less damage on average
than those built between 1994 and
2001 under the Standard Building
Code. '
Homes completed before 1994,
meanwhile, fared worse.
"The iterations and changes
over the years to the codes Florida
uses have made a measurable dif-
ference," said Kurt Gurley, a UF
associate professor of civil engi-
neering and the lead investigator
on the project.

The UF research is important
because it demonstrates that qual-
ity codes are a key part of the pre-
scription against hurricane dam-
age, said Jeff Burton, building code
manager at the Tampa-based
Institute for Business & Home
Safety, a building safety advocacy
group whose engineering experts
participated in the study.
Gurley's team, which also
included engineers from Florida
International University and
FloridaA&M University, compared
homes in the path of the highest
wind zones generated by the hur-
ricanes.
The engineers interviewed


homeowners, examined photos
and other records of damage and
inspected homes for construction
method noting, for example, the
size and spacing of nails used to
affix roofing plywood to rafters.
Among the group's,findings:
Shingle-roofed homes built under
the 2002 code retained more
asphalt shingles than homes built
under the 1994 code. Retaining
shingles is critical in hurricanes
because loss of too many can com-
promise the roof, allowing rain to
enter the attic and living space.
The new code requires shingles
rated to withstand higher winds
than the previous code.

'Angels' help homebound seniors


HEATHER PERRY
News-Leader
Homebound Nassau County
seniors have some "unheralded
angels" on their side, according to
Council on Aging Development
Director Ron Kurtz.
"Whether ifs light housekeep-
ing, laundry, grocery shopping or
other services, each task is per-
formed with a smile," said Kurtz.
In-home workers are provided
through funding sources such as
United Way, Medicaid/Medicare
and private donations.
"We help our seniors remain
active members of the community,"
said in-home supervisor/case aid
Lea Reed. "They appreciate being
able to remain in their own
homes," said Reed. "And they
enjoy the company."
"As long as I can, I'm going to
Sbe right here," said grateful senior
Virginia Knight.
Knight said the in-home serv-
ices provided by the Council on
Aging are "the difference between


living with a little independence
and having to go into a nursing
home where I'm less than human."
Family and caretakers, too,
appreciate the welcome respite
afforded by the visiting workers.
According to caregivers.com, "it
is important that caregivers rec-
ognize that it is OK to take a break
from caregiving duties."
,Most of the team members are
certified nursing assistants who
have received training through
courses at community college or
the American Red Cross. The 23
workers receive additional train-
ing at weekly meetings and month-
ly classes.
To receive services, clients'

BENJAMIN PRICE/NEWS-LEADER


County closer


to airing results


of investigation


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
After three months and hun-
dreds of hours, county officials
still don't know when they'll see
the results of an investigation into
wetlands mitigation that was paid
for but never completed at the
Nassau County Judicial Annex in
Yulee.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said Thursday the
"majority" of the four-member
fact-finding team's investigation
was complete but no date has
been set for the presentation of its
findings.
He said he and the three other
team members, County Attorney
Mike Mullin, County Engineer
Jos6 Deliz and interim
Administrative Services Director
Cathy Lewis, are preparing a
PowerPoint presentation to show
the Nassau County Commission
at a public meeting.
But he didn't know when the
presentation would be ready.
'There's some loose ends that
have to be tied up so that (the
presentation's) not confusing,"
he said.
Deliz said Thursday it will
include more than 50 slides and
might require two special meet-
ings to present. The information
will be available to the public.
Mullin said Friday the com-
mission will use the information
to decide if it needs to complete
mitigation work never performed
and settle any outstanding per-
mit issues with the state. If the
commission determines some-
one is responsible for the costs,
he said they could attempt to hold


them accountable.
"But what they do with the
facts will be up to the board,"
Mullin said. "I can't begin to
guess about what they'll decide to
do."
The county has been working
on the investigation since March
to determine if there was wrong-
doing in the payment of $14,000
for wetlands mitigation never
completed during the construc-
tion of the complex on William
Burgess Road in Yulee. A neigh-
bor has since complained about
repeated flooding of his property.
Mahaney said he has spent
about 150 hours on the project
and the other team members
have probably spent more.
"Everyone's got other stuff to
do," he said. "We're not trying to
delay, we go in every morning
and deal with the most time-sen-
sitive issues."
Mahaney said he would have
to "back off' soon to prepare the
2005-6 budget and concentrate
on other pressing matters.
"It has been time-consuming,
but we're charged with gather-
ing facts and it takes time if we're
going to do a thorough job,"
Mullin said.
Citing "possible criminal
intent" and "gross inefficiency of
government," Nassau County
Clerk of Court John Crawford
had urged a state investigation in
letters to the governor and state
attorney.
However, the Nassau County
Commission .instead appointed
the fact-finding team in March to
perform its own internal investi-
gation.

officials are encouraging residents
and visitors to protect themselves
from tick bites when enjoying the
Florida outdoors this summer.
, no rO qativelW af sig ,f'k-
borne diseases are reported in
Florida, yet transmission is entire-
ly preventable by avoiding tick
bites," said Department of Health
Secretary John 0. Agwunobi in a
press release.
Tick-borne diseases reported
regularly in Florida include ehrli-
chiosis, Lyme disease and Rocky
Mountain spotted fever. Diseases
such as Q fever and tularemia
may also be transmitted to people
by ticks:
The DOH recommends the
following simple steps:
Avoid tick-infested areas.


* Walk in the center of trails to avoid
contact with vegetation.
Wear light-colored clothing.
Tuck your pant legs into your
socks.
..-':* Use cheniical repellenri sith
DEET or pernt-thlriii aund wear
protective clothing.
Perform daily tick checks
on yourself, your children your
clothing and your pets. Check
yourself and your children under
the arms, in and around the ears,
inside the belly button, back of
the knees, in and around the hair,
between the legs and around the
waist.
Remove ticks safely. Grab
the tick close to the skin and
remove it by pulling it gently
straight out Avoid direct contact
with tick fluids.

Grant may help



emergency radio


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader

Should Northeast Florida
receive millions of dollars in federal
grant money this year, Nassau
County may get a new emergency
communications system mostly
paid for.
Patricia McCullough of the
Jacksonville Sheriffs Department
has confirmed that other counties
in the Northeast Florida region
have each agreed to allow Nassau
County and Jacksonville Beach to
be the primary benefactors of a
communications grant totaling $8
million.
Nassau County Deputy Fire
Chief Sam Young said that's "excel-
lent news" for the county, which
has been trying for more than a
year to find funds for desperately
needed improvements to the com-
munications system used by coun-
ty law enforcement, fire and res-
cue.
Because Nassau County's sit-
uation is so urgent, McCullough
said the other counties agreed to
let Nassau have the bulk of the
share.
"Because Nassau County has
one of the most pressing needs in


the region, the other counties said,
'Yes, we will support an applica-
tion that would help Nassau
County achieve it's goals',"
McCullough said.
Currently, public safety units
sometimes find it difficult to com-,
municate with one another or dis-
patchers when they're in certain
areas of the county.
The situation was considered
so serious that the county com-
mission declared the issue an
emergency in 2004.
However, finding the funds for
millions of dollars in communica-
tions upgrades has been a prob-
lem for the cash-scrapped county.
Last year, the commission con-
sidered asking voters to approve
an additional 1-cent sales tax to
pay for the system. But that was
nixed after staunch public opposi-
tion.
The county has since hired a
private consultant, L. Robert
Kimball and Associates, to formu-
late a plan to either upgrade or
replace its system.
The county has narrowed its
options to three proposals, Young
said, which willbe presented to
the county commission for
approval at its July 13 meeting.


lay for



system

At a meeting in May, Kimball
and Associates recommended the
county replace its current system
at a cost of nearly $15 million.
However, Young said the county
has since focused on less expen-
sive renovation projects, which
would cost closer to $3.5 million.
Once the commission makes
its decision, Young said, the grant
application can be submitted
immediately.
There is also approximately
$750,000 in grant money the coun-
ty was awarded in 2003, which it
can use toward improving com-
munications within the fire depart-
ment, Young said. However, that
money can only be spent toward
the fire department, not law
enforcement
McCullough said Northeast
Florida is one of 100 regions across
the country that will compete for
the $90 million in federal grant
money. The region applied for the
same grant last year but was
unsuccessful.
The grant money has to be
used toward communications.
equipment, and would require an
upfront, 25 percent match, she
said.

until the authorized emergency
vehicle has passed, unless other-
wise directed by any law enforce-
ment officer.
.* If you're traveling on a high-
speed road or if there is no room to
stop, slow down and move over as
much as possible.
If you are in the left lane, pull
over into the right lane as traffic in
the lane to your right moves over..
When an emergency vehicle
approaches you from behind while
you are stopped at an intersection,
stay where you are unless you can
pull to the right
Vacate the lane closest to the
emergency vehicle when driving on
a highway with two or more lanes
traveling in the direction of the
emergency vehicle, except when
otherwise directed by a law enforce-
ment officer.
If drivers can't change lanes
safely, or they are on a two-lane
highway, they must slow to a speed
that is 20 miles per hour less than
the posted speed limit when the
speed limit is 25 miles per hour or
greater; or travel at 5 miles per hour
when the posted speed limit is 20


miles per hour or less, except when
otherwise directed by a law enforce-
ment officer.
Drivers should stay at least
500 feet behind emergency vehi-
cles.
DON'T:
Panic.
Play your radio so loudly that
you are unable to hear sirens.
Race ahead to make the green
light or turn before the emergency
vehicle gets there.
Turn quickly to the left onto a
street or driveway.
Drive through a red light on
stop sign when an emergency vehi-
cle approaches from behind.
If the emergency vehicle is
traveling on the opposite direction
of a divided highway or street, you
do not need to pull over.
Disregard the presence of the
emergency vehicle by continuing
to drive.
'There were 75 firefighter
deaths nationwide involving motor
vehicle collisions from 1990-2000
and Nassau County was among
these statistics with one fatality,"
said Tracy Braley, deputy chief.


If you or someone you love is in
need of emergency assistance, you
want help to get there right away.
There's one thing everyone can do
to help the firefighters/paramedics
provide this emergency assistance
as quickly as possible. It's as simple
as moving to the right for sirens
and lights.
"Firefighters killed while
responding to incidents account for
the highest number of on-duty fatal-
ities in Nassau County," said Chuck
Cooper, Nassau County Fire Chief.
"It is our intent to reduce this cause
of firefighter loss of life."
Many people panic or simply
don't adhere to the rules of the road
for approaching emergency vehi-
cles, he said. The law is specific:
Drivers must yield the right-of-way
to an emergency vehicle, and failure
to do so can cause serious accidents
or delays in fire-rescue apparatus
arriving at the scene of an emer-
gency.
Firefighters are careful to avoid
vehicle collisions by driving slowly
when traveling against traffic, or
when approaching intersections.
However, the cooperation of all vehi-
cles on the roadway is essential.
There are some simple rules to
follow when you're on the road and
encounter an emergency vehicle:
DO:
Stay Calm."
Yield the right-of-way to the
emergency vehicle.
Immediately proceed to a posi-
tion parallel to, and as close as rea-
sonable to the closest edge of the

section.

WEDNESDAY. JUNE 29.2005 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office, the
city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a
'crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information about
criminal activity can contact the
Fernandina Beach Police Depart-
ment at 277-7342 or the Nassau
County Sheriffs Office anony-
mously by calling 225-0147 in Yulee
and Fernandina Beach or 879-
2136 in Callahan, Hilliard and
Bryceville. The "We Tip"program
- 1-800-78CRIME also allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.

Tiki bar theft
Police are investigating the
theft of liquor and beer worth
more than $1,200. The drinks
were reported stolen from a pool-
side tiki bar in a residential sub-
division off Amelia Island
Parkway.
Police believe the theft
occurred after 1 a.m. on June 21
when someone forced the hinges
off a door to the bar.
The suspect took 10 bottles of,
various kinds of liquor and two
cases of beer, according to a
report from the Nassau County
Sheriffs Office.
No arrests have been made.

Pickup stolen
A Yulee man's pickup truck
was reportedly stolen from his
driveway on Thursday.
The victim told police he was
inside his Newell Road residence
when he heard his vehicle start
up. When he ran outside, he saw
his truck being driven down the
road with no lights on.
According to the victim, the
doors of the truck were locked
and the windows were rolled up.
He told police he kept a set of
keys to the truck inside the cab on
the floorboard.
Police believe the suspect
somehow entered the truck, locat-'
ed the keys on the floor and then
drove away with the vehicle.
The incident is under investi-
gation.


Hunting lodge theft
Abottle of wine, binoculars and
two lanterns were reported stolen
from a Hodges Road hunting
lodge last week.
According to police, someone
entered the lodge, located north of
Hilliard, by breaking a window
next to the door, then reaching in
through the broken window to
unlock the door.
Two Coleman lanterns that
were taken were listed in the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
report as beingvalued at $60. No
value was listed for the binocu-
lars or for the unopened bottle of
Blackstone Merlot.
The theft was reported on June
20. No arrests have been made.

Attempted b urglay
Police have a black baseball
cap and a bloody T-shirt as clues
in a reported attempted burglary
in Bryceville.
The victim told police some-
one was trying to open the back
door of a Horseshoe Circle resi-
dence around 2:30 a.m. on June
21. When he opened the door, the,

2 police officers hurt


in accidental shooting


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Two Fernandina Beach Police
officers were injured Sunday when
a firearm accidentally discharged.
The accident happened about
2:40 p.m. Sunday while the officers
were on duty on Citrona Drive.
Officers Freddy Peake and
Chad Lee suffered minor injuries
when a gun belonging to one of
them accidentally went off.
According to Lt Jim Coe of the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department, the gun went off once
and Peake was shot in the wrist
Lee was hit in the torso by a
bullet fragment, Coe said.
The two men were driven to
Baptist Medical Center Nassau by
another officer who heard their
call for assistance over the radio.
The men are expected to return


to work soon, Coe said. They're
waiting for approval from a physi-
cian.
The guri was a .38-caliber
revolver, not the standard- issue
Glock that officers carry. It's a
backup weapon that the officer can
carry anywhere in his vehicle or on
his or her person.
Coe said the shooting is being
investigated. After investigators
question the men, the incident will
be reviewed by a "shooting review
board," according to Coe.
"That will be to see if there's
anything we need to do, any addi-
tional training we need to provide,"
Coe said.
Coe said he expects the inves-
tigation to be complete by the end
of the week.
Neither officer has received any
disciplinary action.

Emergency Management Director

Barricades were placed on the
roads on Saturday. Freeman said all
of them were removed by early
Sunday morning.
No damage was reported from


the flooding.

"There are some areas in
Nassau County that probably got
more than five inches of rain,"
Freeman said.
Nassau County Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper said there were no
reports of injuries over the week-
end related to the flooding.
Freeman said flooding is not
uncommon in Nassau County after
heavy rainfall.
"It's another case.of tooi much;
water, in too short a time period,
with not enough place to go," she
said.

Program gives disabled


the freedom to create"


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
"Its all about the freedom to
create," said Tim Lefens of
Bellmead, N.J. Lefens has
devised techniques that allow
developmentally disabled per-
sons to produce large abstract or
non-objective paintings without
having to touch the paintings or
manipulate brushes.
Lefens, who has introduced
the program in several states
already, conducted a three-day
workshop at 329 Place on June
21-23, where selected patients of
Amelia Care Center arrived in
wheelchairs to experience the
art of painting. Eight employees
of the center also attended as
"tracker" trainees, who will carry
on the work after Lefens and his
associates leave.
Trackers apply the paint
according to directions given by
the disabled participants. One

'The tracker must

communication
takes place.'
INSTRUCTOR TIM LEFENS

method involves determining
placement of lines from point to
point on the canvas.
The artist-participant indi-
cates the location of the points,
and whether each line is to be
curved or straight.
After the lines are in place,
the'tracker fills in the areas with
the hues chosen by the partici-
pant. It is slow, intense and
demanding work for the tracker,


who does not teach, but acts as
the vehicle of motion, the hands,
of the artist.
Another method uses a laser
attached to the artist's head, and
the tracker applies paint accord-
ing to the beam that is moved
across the painting. For this to
work, it is necessary for the
artist to concentrate and control
the beam.
"Trackers have to be coming
from the right place, and not all
those in training will be qualified
to do this," said Lefens. "If two
out of the eight trainees make it,
that is an excellent ratio.
"A robot could never do this,
even though the tracker is acting
only as an instrument for the
painter," he explains. "The track-
er must connect with the partici-
pant on a level where sensitive
and accurate communication
takes place. The human element
is necessary."

SPORTS TALK
JOHN L. CRAWFORD



College

baseball

a big hit'in

Gainesville
N ot many fans of
major college foot-
ball and basketball
teams seem to
know a whole lot about their
favorite school's baseball
team. In fact, college baseball
can be perceived as the red-
headed stepchild of major
university sports. Go to
cbssportsline.com and you
have to look under "other" to
find news about it.
For whatever reason, col-
lege baseball is just not
embraced like Major League
Baseball.
After watching the Florida
Gators play in the champi-
onship round of the College
World Series last weekend, I,
have a feeling opinion is
about to change in
Gainesville. The Gators field-
ed a competitive, fun-to-
watch club in 2005 one
filled with underclassmen
who have a good shot at a
promising 2006 season.
What's more is UF is just
the third school in the last
decade to play for the nation-
al championship in football.
basketball and baseball. That
alone will likely open Gator
fans' eyes to the fact that
there is a stadium other than
The Swamp on campus
(Percy Beard Stadium is just
behind the O'Connell Center
just in case you're wonder-
ing).
If you can get pastthe
tinkk" of the aluminum bat,
college baseball really is very
entertaining....
University of Tennessee
head coach Phat Phil Fulmer
(aren't I sophomoric?) con-
tinues to show a complete
lack of morality, adding a
mere one-game suspension
to a player who was already
suspended for two games for
prior misconduct.
Linebacker Daniel
Brooks, who recently had his
second "brush" with the law
since the end of last season,
will now miss three games
instead of just two.
Oooohhh! What's next,
one-quarter suspensions?
How about one-series or, bet-
ter yet, one-play suspen-
sions?
Hey Phat boy, you're
starting to make Bobby
Bowden look like Vince
Lombardi...
Speaking of Bowden and
FSU, there have been no offi-
cial updates on Wyatt Sexton
- the Seminoles quarterback
found jumping on cars and
calling himself God a few
weeks ago other than his
father saying the problem
isn't related to drug "abuse."
So does that mean. Sexton is
just a casual user of
'shrooms? Seriously, if FSU
officials don't want negativi-
ty surrounding the situation.
they should consider being
forthcoming with informa-
tion instead of clamming up
when something goes awry.
Sure, there would still be an
initial wave of negativity like
the one we all spewed last
week, but then everyone
would move on.
To be so secretive for so
long leaves it up to the
media's imaginations as to
what might have happened.
And you know some of us
have some pretty twisted
imaginations....
Jacksonville head coach
Jack Del Rio, who I've been
high on (no pun intended; I
haven't been hanging out
with Wyatt) since he was
hired two seasons ago, is
largely considered on the hot
seat to get the Jaguars back
to the playoffs this season.
That seat will grow exponen-
tially hotter if RB Fred Taylor
doesn't suit up. Taylor, out of
training camp with an injured


knee, said last week that he
"hopes" to be ready in time
for the first game.
Del Rio and company's
"hopes" of a successful sea-
son rest on whether or not
that happens.

Despite a flood watch and threatening
and blustery weather, there was a good
turnout for Saturday's Fun Run Relay.
A good group of runners set off from
the beach at Seaside Park, above. New
Amelia Island Runners member Robbie
Whiting, right, at left, gave his team a
big enough lead that they won the first
place Hare award. Caroline Fanelli's
team overcame the loss of a runner to a
cramp but recovered to win the Tortoise
award. The future of running is looking
up with the outstanding performance of
Jarred and Jordan Holland and Ellis
and Winn Bruchman. And spectators
enjoyed it, such as these applauding Liz
Pipes, below. Amelia Island Runners
plans more Fun Run Relays on
Saturday for beginning runners and
runners who aren't interested in being

and no entry fee. The runs are open to
runners of all ages who can run at least

S is a particular way to play out of

bunker is one in which there is
J not much sand in it, causing,
you to blade a lot of shots. The
Most important tip to remem-
ber when you are playing in a hard bunker is
that the sand wedge is not your best option
to perform the best shot. For a hard bunker,
the lob wedge is the best option. The lob
wedge has less. bounce on its angle of
impact, resulting in a cleaner shot through
the ball. As for your setup, it should be the,
exact same as you would have for a normal
bunker shot. On the backswing, cock the
wrist much less and have a more shallow
arc. This will allow you to take a thin sliver of
sand as you go through the ball at impact.,

OUTDOORS

Dan Crowley, above, and the "Posse" fishing team topped the field of 197 tournament boats
with this 42.64-pound kingfish. Patti Langford, below left, is all smiles over her nice kingfish
that just missed the money in the "Lady's" division. Samantha Nader, below right, middle,
weighed in the second largest kingfish in the News Leader's junior angler division, weighing
35.04-pounds. Also pictured is her father Randy Nador. Chris Stevens, bottom, and the "Beer
Money" fishing team held the lead for a short period of time with this second-place 39.10-

OUTDOORS
Continued fromlB

Tournament scales.
With the winds whipping up
whitecaps like a Texas sand-
storm, it appeared that "Beer
Money's" big king would hold on
to win the event.
But the "Posse" fishing team
was closing in on what appeared
to be a winning kingfish and final-
ly handcuffed their catch late in
the afternoon. They immediately
hit the trail once again, back up
the waterway to Fernandina
Beach, and tied their boat off to
the dock where a gathering
crowd of spectators applauded
their catch. Now with a 42.64-
pound kingfish, it was evident
that the winning kingfish had just
been weighed in.'
But the "Beer Money" fishing
team with their second-place
catch would win plenty of money
for their pleasure.
"It was plenty rough out
there," Paul Massey said. "We
ran all the way to Gray's
Reef, where we had landed last
year's winning kirig mackerel.
As the morning grew old, the
seas continued to build and we
were faced with a rough ride
back to the Fernandina Harbor
Marina.".
The 15- to 25-mph northeast
winds did not stop many fisher-
men from running south, where
a number of big fish were landed
along the beaches of Jacksonville
and St. Augustine. In fact, the
majority of the top 10 kingfish
weighed in excess of 30 pounds
and' were taken here.
"I sure wish that those
kings along the beaches of,
Jacksonville would move up to
Amelia Island," Joe Bruce said.
"We fished at Nassau Sound,
where a few kings were landed,
but the bite down south was
much better."
Tournament teams in the
event were allowed to check out
and run the Intracoastal
Waterway to their fishing waters.,
However, at Thursday night's
captain's meeting, many of the
fishing teams were concerned
about the weather forecast.
"We had to cancelSaturday's
fishing day because of the small

craft warning," Rick Langford,
tournament director, said. "After
the first day of fishing in rough
seas, I did not have one team
complain about canceling -
Saturday's fishing day."
Lucas Crowley's 42.64-pound
king won first place honors in
the News-Leader's Junior Angler
division fishing with his father
Dan Crowley and the Posse fish-
ing team. Samantha Nador also
fished with her father, Randy
Nador. on the "Exterminator"
and took second-place honors
with her 35.04-pound king mack-
erel.
Carrie Faver weighed in a
32.50-pound kingfish to capture
the Lady's division on the
"Double-D. Second-place honors
went to A-ison Perkings on the
"Tenacious" with a 21.08-pound
king mackerel. Debbie CampbeP
weighed in a 20.72-pound king-
fish to take third place honors
fishing aboard the "Triple
Threat". "
The "Sea Snake" fishing team
took top honors in the 23-foot
and under division with a 31.46-
pound kingfish, captained by
Steve Thompson.
Richard Geiger and the
"Wave Buster" fishing team
finished second and Joe Bruce
and "Angling Pursuits" placed
third,
The event was followed with a
delicious fish dinner and awards
ceremony on Sunday. Many
thanks to the tournament spon-


sors, including Yates
Construction, Ron Anderson
Chevrolet, Pontiac, GMC, Eagle
Development, Cruise-N-II
Outboards and the News Leader.
Appreciation was also
expressed for the many Nassau
Sport Fishing Association club
members that made this year's
event a big success. Rick
Langford once again organized
this year's event and made it a
big success.

A Kings Lfe"
"A 40-pound kingfish is
approximately sixteen years old,"
Gerri Pinto said. "They actually
have a long lifespan compared to
other saltwater game fish. A lot
of spectators have been asking
us why we have been cutting that
small wedge of bone from
between the eyes of the kingfish.
This small wedge of bone can
actually tell us a lot of informa-.
tion, including the age of the
kingfish."
Gerry Pinto works for
Jacksonville University's marine
department and was on hand not
only to record a multitude of data
from kingfish that were weighed
in, but also to check for fresh-
ness of the kingfish.
"We use a Tory meter to
determine the freshness of the
kingfish," Pinto said. "If the king-
fish was frozen, the Tory meter
will register 5 or lower. A freshly
caught kingfish normally regis-
ters between 10-12 on the Tory
meter."
Pinto also was responsible to
determine if a kingfish was muti-
lated, which automatically dis-
qualifies the catch.
In one particular instance, a
king was gaffed on the back
where some of the skin and meat
wvas ripped away.
"It was apparent that the
kingfish struggled when it was
gaffed and resulted in some of
the flesh missing on its back."
Pinto said. "In this case it was
quite evident that the damage,
was caused by a gaff and not an
attacking predator fish. So I
approved their catch."
. A lot of the gathered informa-
tion from the kingfish will also be
given to the National Fishery
Commission.

to assist a trapper in taking alliga-
tors, but only ini the presence of
the permitted trapper. All per-
sons seeking a harvest permit
must be at least 18 years of age
by Sept. 1, 2005, and only one
harvest permit per person will be
issued.
To educate participants on
the rules and regulations
,of the hunts, the FWC offers a
no-cost, three-hour training and
orientation program, which is
held throughout the state.
Permit recipients are not
required to attend, but first-time
participants are strongly encour-
aged to do so.
Courses will be offered in July
and August, and permit holders
will receive, by mail, permit
packages listing exact dates and
locations.

There's always a story waiting,


W writerss are always
asked about "writer's
Blockk" It is not a
rare disease that only
attacks those who write. First of
all, blocks are not limited to writ-
ers, but can be a bane to all kinds
of creative people from painters
to musicians.
Like a bad cold, blocks just
happen. They happen to every-
one, not just those of us that
depend on our writing talents.
There are everyday blocks. You
know doing those things that
you would just rather avoid. It can
be getting the oil changed in your
car, cleaning your house or mak-
ing that dentist appointment.
Why do you think you get those
postcards in the mail or calls
from your dentist's office?
I have been asked if I ever get


writer's
block. It is
not an
option.
Writing
two
columns a
week cre-

stant dead-
lines and
getting
DickieAnderson past blocks
is a neces-
... sity. I am
FROM THE never
PORCH done. As
soon as a
column is
turned in there is yet another
deadline.
So where do the ideas come
from? How do I get started?


Somehow the ideas always come;
sometimes just in the nick of
time. There have been some
close calls.
Being a morning person I find
if I "sleep on it," when the morn-
ing comes my fingers find the
right computer keys and another
deadline is met.
Lots of ideas come my way via
e-mail and as I move through my
busy days. It is the everyday
things that make up our daily
lives that grab me. Kind of like a
photograph, I try and create a
word picture. Those who know
me well can tell when something
may trigger a Porch column.
"We're going to read about
this," they'll say. And they do.
My computer holds rainy day
files on a wide variety of subjects
and people. A conversation, a

needing to

story in the newspaper or some-
thing on television will trigger an
idea that may become a future
column.
Writers do have tricks of the
trade that get them past the
dreaded "writer's block." Most
will tell you that they write every
day. Set a time aside and write. It
can be early in the morning or
late at night or sometime in
between. Like going to work that
is what you do write. Write
about anything just write. Have
a place that is yours. It's your
writing place, your office, your
studio.
Most writers share the same
advice as they encourage others'
to write. Writers need to read.
Read different kinds of books -
history, autobiographies, short
stories, plays, fiction and non-fic-


be told

tion. Anything and everything.
Reading is fuel. You never know
what will trigger an idea.
Write, write, write. Get past
excuses and blocks. Not every
word you see appear on your
computer screen will be golden
or need to be shared. You have
nothing to lose let the words
come one after another.
I encourage everyone to write.
We all have stories, stories that
need to be told.
Dickie Anderson writes two
columns weekly for the News-
Leader, is a regular contributor to
regional publications and has
three books available at local books
stores. Anderson will be conducting
writing workshops this fall. For

Operation Eagle
Operation Eagle, an effort to collect items for U.S. troops in combat zones, is in full swing.
There are donation boxes at Publix, Wal-Mart on the island, The American Legion and First
Baptist Church for items like wipes, travel-size shampoo, lotions, hard candy, letters or post-
cards or money to help with the postage.
So far Operation Eagle has collected items to fill nearly 17 boxes, and near to $200 to pay for
the postage of these boxes to local combat zone soldiers.
Boy Scout Christopher Collins has collected at least six soldiers' names and needs more.
Those with a relative or friend serving in a combat zone may e-mail their name and address
along with yours and how you are related to OpperationEagle@aol.com. so they may receive a
package. Especially needed are letters or postcards of support to be sent in the boxes. The last
day to donate is July 6. Call 261-8814 for information.

On May 14, with grant money provided by Anheuser-
Busch, Keep Nassau Beautiful sponsored the Electronic
Recycling Day in cooperation with the Nassau County Solid
Waste Task Force, Creative Recycling Systems, Inc, and
Smurfit-Stone. The one-day event resulted in 6,684 pounds,
or more than three tons, of electronics being collected and
removed from the county waste stream. Everything from old
movie projectors, televisions and computers were gathered
and shipped to a recycling company in Tallahassee.
Creative Recycling Systems, Inc. will separate the individ-
ual recyclables (precious metals, plastics, etc.) and distribute
them to a variety of recycling firms nationwide. "It is amazing
the variety and age of items we collected," said Todd Duncan,
KNB's executive director, in a press release. "The communi-
ty's support is tremendous and shows their drive to remove
recyclables from our county's landfill," Duncan stated.

obesity this past school year.
Through the Jump Rope for Heart
and the Hoops for Heart programs,
Nassau County students raised
$17,667 for the American Heart
Association. Amelia Island
Montessori was the top fund-raising

targeted toward elementary and
middle schools to raise money in
the fight against heart disease and
stroke. The programs teach stu-
dents how to have fun exercising
while learning the value of cardio-
vascular fitness and nutrition.
This year in Florida, 1,500
schools participated .in Jump Rope
for Heart and Hoops for Heart, rais-
ing over $3.9 million. Funds raised
locally and across the nation will

tion to extensive educational and
community programs.
The American Heart
Association also supports local,
state and national efforts to pro-
mote greater levels of physical edu-
cation in schools and among youth.

to ensure that foods sold in
Florida's schools through vending
machines, fund-raisers and other
means provide healthy options.
