Church outing turns tragic


Waycross

youth, 13,

drowns
GLENDAS. JENKINS
News-Leader
A church picnic turned tragic
early Saturday afternoon when a
13-year-old boy drowned while
swimming on Main Beach.
Cedric Smith, visiting
Fernandina Beach with the House
of Prayer Outreach Ministry
Church of God in Waycross, Ga.,
died after being overcome by a
huge wave, a church associate who
witnessed the accident said.
Tunde Howard, a chaperone,
with the group, described the
waves as "enormous" and said
another boy had been swimming
with Cedric.
'Two boys were in the water
and they yelled for help," Howard
said. "We got one out and tried to
get the other one. But a big wave
came and he (Cedric) vanished."
According to a Fernandina
Beach Police report, the boy who
had been swimming with Cedric
told police they were standing in
chest-deep water "when they were
pulled out by the waves."
Fernandina Beach Police,
Fernandina Beach Fire-Rescue, the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
local lifeguards and a U.S. Navy
rescue helicopter team searched
for Cedric.
He was found and pulled from
the water 34 minutes after the ini-
tial call, at 2:20 p.m., near the 500
block of Ocean Avenue. He was
taken to Baptist Medical Center
Nassau, where he was pronounced
dead at 2:45 p.m.
The church group, which
included about 30 people, travels to
Fernandina Beach for an outing
every year. Helen Staggers,
Cedric's grandmother, two sisters
and several cousins were also on
the trip with him.
"He wasn't very far out,"
Howard said. But the waves car-
ried "such force" that the boy's
swimming ability was not enough
to save him.
"He was a very good swimmer,"
Howard said, calling Cedric an ath-
letic, muscular young man who lift-

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
In a calm, matter-of-fact confes-
sion, former Nassau County Clerk
of Courts employee Julie Mixon
said she embezzled funds from the
office for almost a decade simply by
placing cash in her purse.
What started as a theft of about
$5,000 to help out a friend, she
said eventually grew into years of
embezzlement that officials now
estimate adds up to more than s.i
million.
In a recorded confession to a
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement investigator April 22,
Mixon detailed how she was able to
pocket cash for years without being
detected. Not by her employer or
the county auditor Farmand,
Farmand &Farmand, even though
her method sometimes created
daily accounting discrepancies of
thousands of dollars.
Mixon said she began by
destroying deposit slips and keep-
ing the cash.
"When I first started out, I
would just take the deposit slip and
tear it up and keep the money,"
she said.
Later, when the county switched
to an electronic system, she said
she began printing false checks
and deposit slips to cover the cash
she was stealing.
The checks were located in an
unsealed box at the clerk's office,
and she kept a stack along with
deposit slips in her desk.
According to the interview,
records, show that on one day in
November 2004, the traffic depart-
ment brought in about $4,600. Of
that amount, about $1,290 was in
cash. However, the corresponding
deposit slip shows all of the money
was in the form of checks.
Mixon admitted that on this and
other occasions, she would pocket
the cash and print a fake check on
her computer to make up the dif-
ference.
"How did that occur?" the inter-
viewer asks.
'"The same way," Mixon said. "I

Public hearing urged before Crane Island deal


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
were urged Monday to schedule a
public hearing before the county
"pre-approves" any development
for Crane Island.
Fernandina Beach and county
commissioners are scheduled to
discuss the controversial develop-
ment at 5 p.m. today at a joint local


planning meeting at the -Peck
Center on South 10th Street.
Their goal is to agree on a mem-
orandum 'of understanding to
determine which government
agency will control various aspects
of the development's application
process.
Gordon Reilly told county com-
missioners Monday he felt the
county's draft of the memorandum
was an "endorsement" of the devel-


opment, and asked that a public
hearing be held before the two par-
ties agree.
"Since Amelia Island Plantation
became involved in this there's
been more executive sessions and
meetings of commissions than any
issue I can recall," he said.
"Frankly, it appears a little tawdry
to the public. We want a public
hearing."
1The city intends to annex any


eventual development on the island
but maintains the county should
first set the housing density param-
eters.
That's a sticking point for those
who argue the island is designated
as conservation wetlands and
should only be approved for 49
housing units.
However, a density swap from
the Amelia Island Co. (owner of
Amelia Island Plantation) would


move previously approved units
from an existing development on
the south end of the island several
miles north to Crane Island. This
would increase the development's
density to 169 homes.
Opponents are skeptical of the
legitimacy of the swap, and voiced
their concern over this and other
aspects of the proposal Monday.

News-Leader

^ Nobody is as eager to legally
get on the road behind a steering
wheel as a 16-year-old. And
nobody is more of a danger. It's
not just the raging hormones
that cause young drivers to take
- risks; their brains are still grow-
D ing until their mid-20s, and
rational functions such as good
judgment and self-control are
still works in progress. But they
don't know that and you will
never convince them of it.
So parents and guardians, it's
up to you to stay in control, and
don't be lenient when it comes to
withholding driving privileges if
and when your young driver
deliberately breaks the rules.
Car crashes are the leading killer
of people ages 15 to 20 -and
crashes are three times as high
for 16-year-olds as 19-year-olds. -
Secondly to preserving life
and limb of your young driver
and any others in his path, are
concerns over the spiking cost of
automobile insurance when a
teen-age family member gets his

- a


license,
which can
increase 50
to 200 per-
cent Here
are some
ways to
bring down


the costs:
Some insurance companies
allow you to choose which family
drivers are assigned to which
car. For example, designating
your teenager as the driver of the
older of two cars, especially if it
is a sedan rather than a sports
car, will mean lower rates. In
most cases, rates are better if
you keep your teen on your poli-
cy rather than on a separate poli-
cy.
Many insurance companies
give a discount, from 10-25 per-
cent, for student drivers who
maintain a B average or better.
This can be a condition of the
driving privileges you allow.
Driver's Ed can reduce the
insurance rate by 5 to 15 percent.
However, these courses are usu-
ally very brief, and don't reduce
the risk of accidents by very


much at all; students need much
more supervised driving experi-
ence with a very good driver in
order to learn good habits and
that is much more important that
simply reducing the insurance
cost.
Boost your deductible; if it
is now $250, raise it to $500 or
$1,000. You can save as much as
35 percent. If you feel that this is
too much of a financial drain if
you must make multiple claims,
that's a sign that you don't really
think your teenager is ready to
be a responsible driver.
Even one damaging acci-
dent can raise your insurance
rate, so consider not reporting a
small fender-bender to your
insurance agency, but paying for
the repair yourself. Rather, have
your teen driver pay for it.
Do restrict nighttime driv-
ing until the young driver is
older and more experienced. Itfs
not only that 41 percent of fatal
accidents involving teenage driv-
ers occur at night; the drunk-
driving death rate is 200 times
greater during late evening
hours and after midnight And


while your son or daughter may
be trustworthy in this respect,
many other drivers on the road
are not.
Limit the number of passen-
gers in the car. The risks rise -
with each extra person in the car,
especially males.
A cell phone is a distraction
that causes a greater risk for
drivers who are inexperienced,
and is not a good idea for anyone
to use while flying along in traf-
fic. Ditto for extra-loud stereos
that can block out the sounds of
sirens or warning car horns.
Warn you teen driver
against driving when he or she is
very sleepy or extremely tired.
Teenagers fall asleep much easi-
er than most of us.
It's heart breaking to hear
of so many young lives lost at the
very edge of adulthood because
of carelessness, poor judgment
or inexperience, as the high
insurance rates prove. Be sure
your teenager has plenty of driv-
ing time with a skillful, responsi-
ble and well-experienced driver
before you hand over the keys.

The owner of a Fernandina
Beach pawnshop was arrested
July 6 after a confidential inform-
ant reportedly videotaped him
agreeing to purchase stolen
handguns.
Frederick Ernest Lindes, 70,
of 610 South 15th St, Fernandina
Beach, has been charged with
dealing in stolen property.
According to the arrest affi-
davit from the Nassau County
Sheriffs Office, officers were con-
ducting a "covert investigation in
reference to the purchasing habits
of local pawnshops."
Nassau County SheriffTommy
Seagraves said investigators peri-
odically check pawnshops using
informants.
"It was a one-day investigation
just to see if anything was going
on that shouldn't be going on,"
Seagraves said. Seagraves said
several pawnshops throughout
Nassau County were investigat-
ed that day.
"We're not targeting any par-
ticular person," Seagraves said.

Police say the informant told
Lindes the guns were stolen, and
Lindes purchased the guns for

According to the affidavit,
when confronted by police Lindes
first said he had purchased the
guns but denied knowing they
were stolen.
"Once at the station, the defen-

and admitted that the seller stated
the handguns were stolen," the
report said.
No other arrests resulted from
the investigation.

SHOOT Continued from 1A
shot injuring two victims from "head
to toe" and one victim in the leg.
All three have since been
released from the hospital.
Police have said they believe the
incident may be related to an ongo-
ing feud, although Bishop declined
to comment further on a possible
motive. He did confirm that police
believe the victims may not have
been the intended targets of the
shooting.
Bishop said the incident remains
under investigation and police are
pursuing all leads.
The victim of another shooting
that occurred on July 4, Adam
Matteson, is listed in good condition
at Shands Jacksonville. Matteson
was shot after an altercation with
the father of a woman with whom he
has an infant child.
Kenneth Reece, 52, reportedly
shot Matteson in the face and in
the back after Matteson came to
his Tidewater Street home alleged-
ly making threats. Reece told police
Matteson had been making threats
to him and his family for more than
a year, and Reece's daughter had a
restraining order against Matteson.
Reece was arrested July 5 and
charged with attempted murder.

Building


permits


increase

Building permits issued in
Nassau County rebounded in
June after a fall in May.
There were 112 permits
issued for single-family resi-
dences in June, compared to
only 58 the month before.
That brings the total for the
year in Nassau County to 558
single-family residential permits.
That compares with 1,238
permits issued in all of 2004
and 1,005 permits issued in
2003.
Building permit statistics are
compiled by the Northeast
Florida Builders Association
from city and county building
departments.
In Clay County, 441 permits
were issued in June, compared
to 252 in May. There have been
1,857 permits issued in Clay
thus far this year.
In Duval County, 807 permits
were issued in June and 682 in
May. Total for the year is 3,991.
In St. Johns County, there
were 498 permits issued in June
compared to 502 in May. Year to
date total is 2,423.
Total single-family residen-
tial building permits issued in
the four counties through
June is 8,829, compared to
13,636 in all of 2004 and 11,976
in 2003.


University of Florida
The University of Florida is join-
ing other American schools that,
like corporations and professionals,
are putting down roots in rapidly
growing China.
The UF Center for International
Studies in Beijing opened in June,
joining a growing number of U.S.
universities establishing offices or
otherwise ramping up activities in
China, home to the world's sec-
ond-largest and fastest-growing
economy.
UF and institutions such as the
University of Michigan and the
University of Maryland have long
had agreements or collaborated
with Chinese universities on, for
example, international study pro-
grams in Chinese or English. UF's
new China-based office seeks to
expand these kinds of collabora-
tions into a palette of distance-
learning classes and other offer-
ings.
The goal: to both entice top
Chinese students to pursue UF
degrees and help a growing num-
ber of American students seeking
careers in China get a foothold in
the country.
"After 9/11, the number of
international students applying to
UF and other universities basical-
ly dropped 30 percent, so we have
a need to increase our efforts to
recruit international students," said

professor of industrial and systems
engineering and the center's
director. "And because of devel-
opments in China, our students
are becoming more and more
interested in business and careers
there, and demand is increasing
for Chinese language and cultural
classes and opportunities to visit
China."
Peggy Blumenthal, vice presi-
dent for educational services at
the New York City-based Institute
of International Education,
said Chinese students no longer
view the United States as the
must-have option for graduate stud-
ies.
Also, she said, more and
more American students are opt-
ing to study in China in fact,
according to Chinese govern-
ment figures, some 3,730 American
students journeyed to the country
to study in 2003, she said..
"China is becoming one of the
leading host countries as well as a
leading sending country, and that's
quite new," she said.
Not only that, but with increas-
ing funding from the Chinese gov-
ernment, Chinese university grad-:
uate research programs are rapidly
improving their quality and capa-
bilities, she said.
The result of all these trends
is that U.S. universities increas-
ingly see opening China-based
offices or enhancing China
activities as key to their future suc-
cess.
"I think the growth of gradu-
ate programs in China is opening
opportunities for collaborative
research," she said. "And I think
there's a wide range of ways where
if you have a presence on the
ground, you can explore a lot of
opportunities for academic link-
ages, beyond just receiving stu-
, dents."
Bai returned to Gainesville in
June from Beijing, where he rent-
ed the UF center's office space in
the China Agricultural University's
international conference center.
The conference center, located is
in the city's Haidian District, is in
an area known as the "university
zone" because 10 Chinese univer-
sities are based there.

IN BRIEF

Disaster seminar
Local business owners,
managers and employees may
learn more about how to pre-
pare for disasters such as hur-
ricanes during a "Disaster
Preparedness and Business
Continuity" seminar Aug. 9.
The seminar is from 4-6:30
p.m. at the Association for
Retarded Citizens (ARC) build-
ing, 86051 Hamilton St (US 17
north of A1A) in Yulee.
Registration begins at 3:30.
The seminar will feature
speakers from the public and
private sector offering exam-
ples of business disaster plans.
In addition, participants will
have a hands-on session on
developing disaster plans for
their business.
The Amelia Island-Nassau
County Association of Realtors,
Amelia Island-Fernandiia
Beach-Yulee and Greater
Nassau chambers of com-,
merce, Fernandina Beach Fire
Department and Nassau
County Emergency Manage-
ment will host the seminar.
First Federal Savings Bank of
Florida will provide refresh-
ments.
Attendance is free but regis-
tration is required. Call 261-
8133 to register.

Leadership matters
"Leadership Matters," a
course for those in non-profit
organizations, will be offered
on six Wednesdays at St.
Peter's Episcopal'Church by
the Nassau Institute for
Community Education.
The class, taught by Robert
Bolan, is scheduled to meet
Oct. 5-Nov. 9. The fee is $50.
This course is for officers,
board members, staff and key
volunteers of non-profit organi-
zations. Course modules will
address governance issues,
strategy making, marketing,
fund-raising, communications,
financial and legal matters and
topics selected by course par-
ticipants.
The instructor has more
than 30 years' full-time experi-
ence with non-profit organiza-
tions as CEO, board chair,
teacher and consultant.


Local residents just got a
million or so reasons
why Nassau County
has to take hold of its
finances.
Every dollar stolen from resi-
dents in the scandal involving a
former county finance supervi-
sor should serve a million
notices and reminders. But once
again, county officials are seem-
ingly unresponsive and uncon-
cerned.
At least the new clerk of
court, John Crawford, did the
right thing in alerting state offi-
cials when the financial records
did not add up as his new
regime took office. Several coun-
ty commissioners got upset with
Crawford for asking the state to
investigate another troubling
matter regarding funds spent for
wetlands restoration at the new
courthouse. They felt he should
have called it to their attention
first, and let them fully investi-
gate in-house.
That's about like asking blind
mice to find their way out of a
maze. The lack of oversight and
accountability by commissioners
- they are, after all, running the
county as our elected stewards -
helped foster the mess in the
first place.
The $1 million that was
stolen from county coffers is evi-
dence of this. There must be
)checks and balances, and
accounting measures, to prevent
something like this again.
One of the few comments
from local officials is that most
of the money was collected from
fees and fines that are owed to
the state. They also described an
elaborate scheme by the finance
director that was impossible for
them and their auditors to
detect.
They said many of the fines
and fees were paid in cash. This
made it easier and less notice-
able for the finance director to
pocket them. With such logic,
however, this type of activity
must be going on everywhere
cash is handled.
Let's see, most small busi-
nesses handle cash, as do banks,
convenience stores, lemonade
stands; ete: While theft can

like this. County officials have
not said anything about carrying
such a protective measure, or
may not even know whether
they have one or not
This is how chaotic, disor-
ganized and irresponsible our
current government is. They are
more focused on beating local
residents out of another gas tax
than they are getting their finan-
cial house in order.
They could raise taxes and
fees and anything else within ,
their grasp and probably still
not be able to balance their
budget With $80 million in long-
term debt, a deteriorating credit
rating and the lack of leadership,
you have to wonder if they will
not just blow any additional
money.
The question now is what
they will do to prevent some-
thing like this from happening
again. The money that was
stolen ($1 million) is about the
same amount that county offi-
cials hope to raise in a whole
year from their newly passed 5-
cent gas tax. That's a million
steps forward, folks. And a mil-
lion steps back.

MIXON Continued from 1A
replaced the cash with the dis-
bursement check and took the
cash and put it in my purse."
She said she would also'
destroy the actual deposit slip and
replace it with a false one she cre-
ated.
On other occasions, Mixon
said she would hold a day's worth
of deposits and destroy the
receipts. Then, on another day
when more cash would come
through, she would pocket the
cash and use the checks she was
holding to make up the difference.
When asked by the interview-
er how often this would happen in
a 20-day period, Mixon admitted
that at one point it was "maybe
four or five" times.
She said the last time she took
cash from the office was as late as
January, shortly after newly elect-
ed Clerk of Court John Crawford
replaced Chip Oxley, clerk since
1996.
The office discovered several
"financial irregularities" shortly
after and Crawford said he sus-.
pected Mixon but never con-
fronted her about it. She was fired
in February.
Throughout the 30-minute
recorded interview with an FDLE
investigator, Mixon was calm and
matter-of-fact. She rarely showed
signs of emotion, and never indi-
cated where she spent the money.
The interviewer pointed out that
on some days she would leave the
office with thousands of dollars
in her purse.
When asked what she did with
the money, Mixon replied with a
nervous laugh, "I spent it."
When the interviewer asked
her to be more specific, Mixon
said, "Some of it (was'spent) on
bills, like I say, I would loan it to

know."
Later she said that she "may"
have spent some of it on a $6,200
down-payment on a new Chrysler
Pacifica automobile. However, she
said she did not use the cash to
pay off the car she estimated to be
worth more than $30,000.
When asked about gambling
trips to Las Vegas, Biloxi, Miss.,
and Tunica, Miss., Mixon said "I
did not take a lot of money to go
on a gambling trip because I'm
not a heavy gambler. Just a small
amount."
Mixon remained adamant
throughout the interview that no
one else in the office knew she
was stealing money or helped her
in any way.
When asked in the interview if
the auditor Farmand, Farmand
& Fa3Jiind knew sh'- wa, ehibez-
zling funds, she replied;,"'
"Evidently not, because they
would have said something. I
know none of them personally."


'Sense of relief, anger' in clerks office


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader

Relief and anger.
That's how Nassau County
Clerk of Court John Crawford
described the mood at his office
following last week's revelation that
former employee Julie Mixon
embezzled more than $1 million
over 10 years.
Her confession made in a law
enforcement interview April 22,
seven days before Mixon killed her-
self in a Jacksonville hotel room -
was revealed at a press conference
Thursday.
"Certainly there's regret and
disappointment, but there's also a
sense of relief now that we have it
from Julie's mouth," Crawford said.
"But there is also anger, knowing
that somebody working in our
midst did this and was allowed to
work here so long undetected."
Now that law enforcement has
wrapped up much of its investiga-
tion into the theft the county has a
two-fold focus: Is there any way to
recover any of the stolen money,
and what measures should be taken
to ensure something like this never
happens again.
In her confession Mixon never
revealed where she spent the
money, and state law enforcement
said last week the answer may
never be known.
But Crawford said Monday the
county is working with an outside
legal council to pursue civil means
to recover any of Mixon's assets
the county may be entitled to.
Crawford confirmed that Mixon
signed over a quitclaim deed April
28 to transfer her three-bedroom
home worth approximately
$110,000 to her sister Mary
Durrance.

However, Crawford would not
say whether that was an asset the
county would try and recover.
"Yes we have identified assets,
but I'm not at liberty to discuss that
further," he said.
In her recorded confession
Mixon admitted she "knew even-
tually it would be caught up with"
but was hoping it wouldn't "and
things would be on the straight and
narrow."
Why it took so long for Mixon to
be "caught up with" remains a mys-
tery.
Crawford, who took over from
former clerk Chip Oxley in January,
said there was a lack of oversight by
his predecessors that allowed
employees to enjoy too much trust
and not enough accountability.
Before Mixon was fired in
February, she was one of the
longest serving employees in the
clerk's office. Hired in 1981, she
eventually served for several years
as finance account manager. Law
enforcement investigators said no
other employees are suspected of
theft or assisting Mixon, who
enjoyed a level of autonomy that
allowed her to take cash and write
fake checks to cover her tracks.
Mixon's actions went undetect-
ed by her employer, internal audits
and the county's outside,auditor
Farmand, Farmand & Farmand.
Crawford said Mixon's salary
increased by about $18,000 in the
eight years she was stealing hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars in.

ly lived modestly
and enjoyed enor-

trust among her
co-workers.
Jerry Greeson,
Crawford's assis-
tant and a former


Nassau clerk of
the courts, who originally hired
Mixon, said last week he was "total-
ly shocked" to learn of her confes-
sion and said he might not believe
it until he heard it with his own
ears.
"As far as I knew, and know, she
was a sweet lady that'd give you
the shirt off her back," he said. "I
haven't heard the confession, and
until, I do, I reserve any further
comment."
Asked Monday if Mixon was too
trusted, Crawford said that would
be "an unacceptable excuse."
"It doesn't matter that I trust
(employees) or respect them, I'm
responsible as clerk to have checks

and balances in place, so that if I
misjudge someone's level of hon-
esty the public trust will still be
protected."
Another question that lingers is
why internal audits or Farmand,
Farmand & Farmand never dis-
covered the "financial irregulari-
ties" Crawford said were first
reported by an employee.
There was an "over-reliance,"
he said, on external consultants
and auditors that created a false*
sense of security in the office.
"There was no system in place
to check what the auditor told us,"
he said. "After what we've gone
through, I don't think we can ever
again rely solely on an outside audi-
tor to give us the assurance our
books are in order."
A spokesperson for Farmand,
Farmand & Farmand deferred
comment to A.B. Farmand, who
was unavailable for comment
The clerk's office has stressed
that steps are already being taken
to guarantee oversight over every
employee in the office, including

the clerk.
That includes adding "comp-
troller" to the clerk's official title
and assigning a deputy comptroller.
The deputy comptroller will cre-
ate the procedures and processes
for handling county funds, and
ensure they're adhered to.
A "department of internal audi-
tor" will also be added to "test,
retest and challenge" the office to
make sure all employees and
departments adhere to the proce-
dures set by the comptroller.
"Even the clerk shouldn't be
moving millions of dollars around
unchecked," Crawford said. "What
if I was a crook? No one will go
without proper oversight. No one
will have the key to the kingdom by
themselves."
In the meantime, the county has
hired an auditing firm specializing
in fraud and embezzlement to try
and determine precisely how much
money is missing. So far the tally is
close to more than a million dol-
lars, and going up.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Beach trash
This picture, right, just south
of beach access #39 near the pier
from the.July 4 weekend, is only
one of many such situations that lit-
tered our beaches this past week.
I wonder if a more pro-active
campaign (signage, posters, etc)
around the island, at the Shave
Bridge and at all beach access
points would help keep our city
and its beaches more attractive for
both our visitors and residents
alike:
Beach users ...
Leave Only your footprints on
the beach...
If you bring it ...
Remove it...
Thank you
The message could include a
picture of a person and a dog
(which is another problem, folks
walking their pets and not cleaning
up after them).

Rescind CRA
The bad Supreme Court deci-
sion in Kelo vs. New London
should give us all something to
worry about This decision makes
it all the more likely that our city
commission will, despite promises
to the contrary, eventually take pri-
vate property, including our
homes, for transfer to developers
promising higher tax revenues for
the city.
Jacksonville has had major cost
overruns with their Better
Jacksonville Plan because original
estimates were based on "just con-
cepts" and lacked "engineering
designs." Does that sound famil-
iar? Do you think that it can't hap-
pen here? When it does, and it will,
the easiest way for the city to bring
in funds is to expand the
Community Redevelopment Area
for private development.
The .commission needs to
rescind its CRA decision immedi-
ately or amend it to require a unan-
imous vote of the commission in
order to make changes to the CRA
boundaries and then put these
changes up to a vote at a regular
city election.
While to some, including the
commissioners that voted him a
raise, it may appear that the city


manager does a good job speak-
ing proudly about completion of
the largest public works sewer
project ever, for new development,
for example what we don't hear
about, going on at the same time is
a leaky pipe carrying raw sewage
on the surface of a neighborhood
street, formally known as "blight-
ed," because we're told they don't
have the materials to repair the
broken main. And we're still wait-
ing for them to repair the drainage
ditches they tore up when they
finally did the repairs.
If the city buys the electric com-
pany and a transformer gets
knocked out, will they just run an
extension cord from another trans-
- former? Is blight deliberately being
propagated to permit easy, and
legal, annexation into the CRA
area?
It seems to me that the CRA,
and many if not most other unpop-
ular positions the commission has
taken, originated and are executed
with vigor by the city manager's
office, with little apparent over-
sight by the commission or the cit-
izens.
With all this in mind, I'd like to
join with the News-Leader ("It's
time for Mearns to go," June 29),
and I would think an ever-growing
list of people, in calling for Mr.'
Mearns' immediate resignation or
dismissal. This needs to be done
now before any more damage is
done to the reputation of the
Fernandina Beach City
Commission.
I'm sure everyone would, like
to keep the city commission from
becoming the "second most hated
commission in Nassau County," as
Vice Mayor Beano Roberts so aptly
put it last year.

Gas hike
Could someone with some
knowledge explain to me how the
gas prices in virtually all the gas
stations on Amelia Island went up
10 to 12 cents overnight last
Wednesday evening? For example,
Wednesday morning two stations
within sight of each on Sadler Road
had a price of $2.17 per gallon.
That afternoon, one raised the'
price to $2.27. Thursday morning,
the other station raised its price to


$2.29. Could they all be getting
their gas from the same whole-
saler even though the brands are
different? Or is there some other
reason that the general public is
not privy to?

Thanks Best Western
Last month my son, who is sta-
tioned in Iraq with the National
Guard, called and asked me to
please send him some little hotel
soaps. It seems that the hygiene
where he is patrolling is pretty bad
and he wanted to pass out these lit-
tle bars of soap to the women and
children. I went to the Best
Western on Sadler Road and asked
if I might purchase a box of these
little soaps. The assistant manager,
Jason, was kind enough to donate
them to me for shipment to, Iraq.
Thank you, Jason, and thanks to all
who keep our boys in their
thoughts and prayers.

Free public library
Re: the letter regarding the idea
of outsourcing our public library
("Privatize the library," June 15.)
Every once in awhile someone
comes along with this idea thinking
that the savings in monies is worth
the price of a free-market approach
to access to information. It is worth
reminding all that the free public
library, a unique American educa-
tional institution, is a vital part of
our democratic way of life. A key
element of a free democracy is the
ability of all citizens to know what
is going on in their world and how
they can participate and prosper.
General McArthur learned this
when he introduced free public
schools and libraries to Japan after
World War II. The result was a dra-
matic change from a feudal society
to one of the world's most active
.democracies. Similarly the fall of
the Berlin Wall was not the result of
large numbers of tanks invading
beyond the former Iron Curtain.
Rather it was the free dissemination
of information to the citizens of
those countries that showed the
lies that their rulers were telling
them about the benefits of being
able to make decisions on their


DONALD LAY/FORTHE NEWS-LEADER


own. Granted we did not throw
books at the Berlin Wall but rather
Radio Free America, fax machines,
computers and, yes, books were
an integral part of the motivation of
the people to rise up and embrace
another form of government, one
that was in their hands.
The free public library was
deemed so essential to our found-
ing fathers that they embodied the
concepts of free thought and
expression in the First Amendment
to the constitution. There were self-
ish reasons for this; they were con-
cerned that the franchise to vote
required an informed citizenry in
order for it to work properly. Free
education and free libraries were
and are still the bulwark of our soci-
ety's success and its future.
Granted not everyone uses the
public library every day. But when
it is needed it is there. We have
agreed as a community to pool our
resources so that all of us can have
access to materials that we other-
wise could not afford. So I suggest
that a balance-sheet approach to
the value of a library is not in the
exact number of users but rather
the value those who use the library
get from knowing rather than the
ignorance of not knowing.


Not only do we need to keep
our free public library but here in
Nassau County we desperately
need to help preserve and expand
the role and concept of the public
library. It is time for our citizens to
step forward and save this institu-
tion from the slow painful financial
starvation that presently exists with
dramatically declining budgets and
support.

Baiting a Gator
When will we see a follow-up
article by the "talented" Mr.
Crawford concerning Wyatt
Sexton ("What if Wyatt was one of
us," June 22).? Let me guess, it's
against policy to have a Gator
retract anything stated detrimental
to FSU. Ain't journalism (and hav-
ing a journalism school) great!
David Drew
Carrollton, Ga.
Fired up
Columnist John Crawford
should be fired for the article he
wrote on Wyatt Sexton on June 22
("What if Wyatt was One of Us"').
The tone, intention, blatant slan-.


der and assumptions regarding
Wyatt's condition and reason for
being hospitalized was completely
uncalled for. It is obvious your
newspaper has no dignity or self-
respect and has no qualms about
printing lies and making unsub-
stantiated claims. If nothing else,
the next column printed by your
paper should be an apology to the
Sexton family.
Jeremy C. Boehl
Apopka
Dr. Crawford
I think it was really impressive
how right on John Crawford
turned out to be about Wyatt
Sexton's Lyme-disease diagnosis
("What if Wyatt was one of us,"
June 22). I think as a "supposed"
journalist for a "supposedly" legit-
imate newspaper he will do a little
more research before writing such
a wrong article. He is a quality
writer for the "enquirer" and
should now be forced to write a
long apology letter to the Sexton
family and Coach Bowden and
hand-deliver them. Shame on him
for not finding out the facts before
writing such an article.

FREE LIVINGG TRUST" SEMINAR

Find out how you may be able to

Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly Without

Probate Fees & With Minimum Estate Taxes


If you own a home ... or have assets worth at least $100,000 of the value of your estate. This means that your family


you owe it to yourself and your family -to get the
facts on living trusts. If you think you're protected with a
simple will ... think again ... In many cases a Will guaran-
tees your estate will go through probate, which means your
family will not be able to take possession of your estate for
many months or even years!
Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insur-
ance and retirement plans, is over $1,000,000 in 2011, your
family may owe estate taxes which could amount to 41-55%


may have to sell some assets just to pay the estate taxes!-
A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize
estate taxes. Plus, a living trust may protect your estate if
you become incapacitated during your lifetime by avoiding
guardianship. This means your estate may be managed as
you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit. To
find out more about the benefits of living trust, attend one

EDITORIAL


The sign says,


Above the law'
C ity Manager Bob Mearns drew loud.
applause from business owners last week
after announcing that the city will '"back
off on sign code enforcement."
Mearns called the current sign ordinance "very
strict and severe," and added, "There's not a mer-
chant in this room who can comply with it."
So the city will establish a sign code review
panel to create "fair and equitable standards for
signs within the city." .
The city manager giveth. and the city manager.
taketh away.' ,
If our sign code is unfair and inequitable, why
did the city launch a vigorous enforcement effort
two months ago that led disgruntled business
owners to pack City Hall and complain?
'Was Mearns uninformed about that? Or this is
the .classic strategy of strictly enforcing codes to
create a backlash so you can be the good guy and
solve a problem that didn't exist until you created
it?, '
Whatever the motive, the result is appalling.
Our city manager has decreed that we will not
enforce the law in Fernandina.Beach. -..
' Which leads us to ask: Just which Igs does,
the city manager have the authority to enforce or
not enforce? And from where does he derive that
authority?
We are sympathetic to merchants who feel the
need to better advertise their businesses, but a
proliferation of unsightly signs is not the answer.
If you're not drawing sufficient business to
your establishment, you may have run afoul of that
old adage that "location, location, location" is what
counts in the retail trade.
Or perhaps other marketing efforts should be
employed to let your customers know of the prod-
ucts, services and prices that distinguish your
store.
In the end, placing signs on state highway right
of way such as on Eighth Street, which is AlA, will'
not be tolerated because there are state laws that
forbid it. Last time we checked even our city man-
ager had no authority to forbid enforcement of .
state laws.
We encourage the sign review panel to come
up with strict codes that are fair and equitable yet
do not lead to a mess of unsightly signs.
But whether the city will strictly and fairly
enforce the new code is, of course, another matter.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Thanks Courtney
Horizons Restaurant under Courtney Thompson's
ownership has closed its doors for the last time.
Many of us have,enjoyed memorable occasions
there with friends and families over the last 10 years.
Courtney's gracious attention always made her
patrons feel special.
In addition I would like to thank Courtney and her
mother Bebe for their generous support of so many
community projects. I remember going to the restau-
rant and discussing the Trinity church restoration
project Horizons wanted to be good neighbors, and
we held the very first solicitation luncheon in the
backroom. Also, I remember the generous support
the~r gave to the Museum's capital campaign 2000.
We held the volunteer appreciation luncheon at the
restaurant that spring; and as the luncheon reached
its conclusion, we were told that the cost was an in-
kind gift to the museum for the campaign. (We had
seated over 85 people that day.) The museum con-
tinued to enjoy many good times in that happy place.
Later came the days of Republican women's
lunches, where at one meeting I remember clearly
an early appeal for Micah's Place. And later Horizons
prepared a delightful offering of food for the reded-
ication of the Nassau County historic courthouse.
The list of involvement goes on and on.
The community owes Courtney a big thank you
for all she has done for us. We are blessed with so
many merchants who give generously in support of
the many projects which enrich this community -
Courtney is a shining example. May she enjoy some
well deserved relaxation and a joyful quality oflife'
with her five-year-old daughter.
If I owned a chefs hat I would tip it to her. Since
I do not, I will simply say, "You enhanced our com-
munity and it was appreciated!"

VIEWPOINT/Lou FREY JR/FORMER MEMBER OF CONGRESS


Court vacancy creates guessing game


T ith the resignation of U.S. Supreme
I Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, a
huge guessing game is under way, Let
S me add to the confusion. First, I
believe that President Bush will get a second nomi-
nation, with the distinct possibility that Chief Justice
Rehnquist will announce his retirement during the
summer congressional recess. Regarding the
O'Connor seat, I believe the president must appoint
a minority, be it a woman, Hispanic, black, etc.
Justice O'Connor was a politician, and at one
point the minority leader of the Republican Senate
in Arizona. At the time of her appointment, her
experience as a judge was limited when compared
with other potential nominees. So don't count some-
one with a strong political background out of the,
hunt The president wants to put himself in a win-
win situation. The best appointment wold be a
Hispanic woman, or possibly the current Hispanic
, attorney general..1 '
L. La Hispanic nonumination is fought vigorously by
'theemocrats. it will send a negative message
about the Democrats to the growing Hispanic popu-
lation throughout the United States. The Democrats
cannot afford to lose any more of the Hispanic yote
than they did in the last election. It would also put
Democrat senators running for reelection, such as
Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, on the spot If he votes
against the nomination, it could become an issue
that could defeat Nelson next year.
:.On the other hand, if Attorney General Alberto
R. Goizales is nominated and approved, the
President gets someone who he knows, trusts and
has admired for a long period of time.
If the president's first nominee is approved, the
second one should be a bit easier. The president will
have more flexibility and this will not have to be a
minority appointment. The president will also have
gained a great deal of momentum in the process.
There is a short list for the O'Connor appointment,
and there is also a relatively short list for the
Rehnquist vacancy when it occurs.
An incredible amount of money is going to be
raised by both sides, pushing their nominees, and.
the media war has already started. As we have seen
historically, nominees have been pushed as "conser-
vative or liberal" but some have turned out quite the
other way. President Eisenhower thought Earl
Warren was a conservative and he wasn't.
Eisenhower said that it was the worst political

appointment of his presidency.
A president wants to appoint a judge who is rela-
tively young. It's a lifetime appointment and if two
people are equally qualified and one is 50 and the
other is 60, it's just common sense to take the 50-
year-old. The longer a president's nominee serves,
the better it usually is for the president's party. And
who knows who will control the Senate and the
presidency when the seat of that particular Supreme
Court justice becomes vacant years down the road?
This is high-stakes poker. It will occupy the news
between now and the vote.at least on the O'Connor
seat takes place. I am in the small minority as I feel

whoever is appointed will not shift the balance in the
court dramatically. For instance, I don't believe that
Roe v. Wade will be repealed. I have been involved
in this process for a number of years and have seen
how people act before elections or appointments
and after elections and appointments, especially if
they don't have to run again. Stay tuned. The drama
has just begun.

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Nassau County may have to
find $236,000 it doesn't have if it
wants to save a countywide public
transit system.
The -county already has four
buses in its possession and a guar-
antee of $236,000 in grant money
from the state Department of
Transportation to fund half the
project. Butso far, the buses
haven't been driven further than a
county parking lot.
And if the county can't match
that $236,000 soon, time may run
out on the grant and a four-year
goal of public transportation could
be scrapped.
James Bennett of DOT said the
county will be granted a six-month
extension on the project, giving it
until June 2006 to have a transit
system up and running.
That deadline means some


tough choices need to be made
soon. Bennett said the county can
either match the $236,000 and have
the program up and running in 11
months, or drop the project and
return two of its buses that were
purchased by DOT. The county
purchased the other two buses.
"I don't want to see this go
away," Commissioner Marianne
Marshall said. "Where do we get
$236,000 well, we don't have it. Is
it worth trying to salvage, yes."
The commission took no action
Monday, but will continue its dis-
cussion at today's regular meet-
ing.'
The county commission inher-
ited the transit system project ear-
lier this year from the Nassau
County Council on Aging.
Following results of a 2000 traf-
fic study paid for by DOT, the coun-
cil on aging requested funding for
a countywide transit system to run
12 hours a day, six days a week.

In 2003, the county was award-
ed the state grant that included a
consultant who determined the
routes.
However, after the buses
arrived, the council on aging said
it could not afford the match or
the funding necessary to see the
transit project through.
The county has also considered
allowing a for-profit agency to run
the project. County Administrator
Mike Mahaney said at least one
agency has a presentation ready
to show the county.
Bennett said DOT wants the
project to succeed in Nassau
County, but stressed future DOT
grants could be affected if the proj-
ect can't get off the ground.
"One thing I want you to under-
stand is that it can have a negative
consequence if you start a service
and can't continue it," he said. "I
don't want to see this happen."

result.
The county will continue to pro-
vide free coverage for individual
employees using the health main-
tenance (HMO) plan. The county
will also continue to cover half of
the cost for these employee's
dependents.
Most employees who pay for
health care insurance will see
increased deductions to their pay-
checks of up to 8 percent.
Far fewer employees use the
county's preferred provider plan
(PPO). They will see much greater
increases in deductions to their
paychecks.
"I was real pleased with our
rates," Keiter said. "Other coun-
ties around us are paying in-the
double digits. That was our goal, to
stay in the single digits."
The county commission
received a presentation on the new
health insurance plan June 27.
Packets were sent to all employ-
ees last week.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said no other decisions
affecting health care will be con-
sidered-this year, but the county's,
retirere plan may eventually be.
affected. Mahaney has said in the
past the county's retirement plan
may be too generous and may have
to be modified for new employees.
"We'll have to look at that at
some point in the future," Mahaney
said after the June 27 presentation.
"But not today."
As for next year's plan, 285 of
the county's 687 employees who
receive benefits will still receive
free health care insurance.
Out-of-pocket expenses will
increase about 8 percent for the
other 268 employees currently on
the HMO plan, who also receive 50
percent coverage for their depend-
ents.
Last year, about 90 employees
under the individual preferred
provider plan also received free
coverage. Now they'll pay $28.34
per month.
The remaining PPO users with
dependents could see their out-of-
pocket expenses increase from 17
to 25 percent This plan is currently
used by 45 employees and Keiter
said she anticipates many will
switch to the HMO for the lower
deductions.
All changes will go into effect
Oct. 1.

'Quite a scary day here in London'


News-Leader

Meredith Howard, a 1999 grad-
uate of Fernandina Beach High
School, was riding a subway train in
London but was not injured when
bombs were set off there Thursday.
Her father, Dave Howard, said
his daughter called shortly after the
attacks were reported to assure her
family she was safe.
Meredith Howard is finishing
her master's degree in policy and
administration of social work from
Florida State University by com-
pleting an internship in London.
This is an excerpt of an e-mail
she sent family and friends after
the bombs describing her experi-
ence:
'Today has been quite a scary
day here in London and I wish I


Howard


were writing
good news. ...
Don't worry I am
totally fine and so
is everyone else
that is studying
here.
"So, I get up
this morning and
it's just a normal
morning, when I
get to the tube I


notice that it's super-congested (not
a shocker) so I get on my tube and
sit there for about 10 minutes and all
of a sudden they come on the speak-
er and say that all underground is
being shut down.... I thought itwas
weird but nothing with the under-
ground surprises me anymore so I
text Kim (my roommate) to tell her
not to bother but she had already


heard that it was completely shut
down, so I call work and decide that
I will figure out the bus system and
take a bus to work.
"This is before I had heard a bus
had blown up, so I wait for a bus for
like 20 minutes and I decided to
text Kim and tell her that I was
about to get on the bus (I was liter-
ally stepping on it), good thing I
did because she texted me right
back to tell me to not get on the
bus and that there are terrorists'
bombing the buses ... so I immedi-
ately come home and that's when I
saw everything going on all around
me.
"I'm not kidding, one of the sta-
tions I go through got bombed 15
minutes before I would have got-
ten there. I just can't believe that
everything is going on so close to


where I am living. We are not
allowed to leave the building unless
it's necessary and we had a manda-
tory security meeting with faculty.
Outside my window are policemen,
ambulances and helicopters it's
pretty scary.
"I hope that you all get a chance
to see (Prime Minister) Tony Blair's
address to Britain, it was very pow-
erful. So needless to say, I probably
won't be working tomorrow either
because I have no way of getting
anywhere in London as of now.
"I just wanted to let you all know
I am thinking of you all and miss
everyone. Iiam fine and just wanted
you all to know that and I honestly
cannot believe what has happened
here, it's the craziest thing I have
ever seen in my life.
"Love, Meredith."


Violence spills from the Middle East


BEVERLY MILLER
For the news-Leader

A tall, willowy, blonde mother
of four children under 6, and an
adjunct professor at the U.S. Naval
War College, Dr. Querine Hanlon
told a filled lecture hall at the
Amelia Island Museum of History
last month about the sources of
ethnic violence in the Middle
East.
The Middle East Hanlon spoke
about lies in southwest Asia, "a very
large region," she pointed out, "and
the Islamic world is much larger
than the Middle East."
The Arabs are a large group;
followed by the Persians, the Turks
and the Kurds. The Kurds are the
fourth largest ethnic group and the
only group to have no state of their
own, Hanlon said, noting that the
principal religious groups Of Islam
are the Shia and the Sunnis, "but
the Kurds are the most important
to watch," she said.
Among the threats from the
Middle East, the professor said,
are terrorism because of weapons
proliferation; Iran's nuclear ambi-
tions; biological and chemical
weapons (weapons of mass
destruction) and ballistic weapons.
"Then 'there are the rogue
states," she said: "Sudan, Libya,
Syria and Iran, which support or
foment terror, and the allies pro-
tecting the freedom to navigate the


Hanlon


Persian Gulf are
Turkey, Israel
and Kuwait."
The origins of
Islam appeal to
the militants of,
today, Hanlon
said. "In the 7th
century, the
A r ab i an
.Peninsula was a
backwater on the'


border with Islam.
As the caravan trade increased
in the peninsula, trade grew rapid-
ly, and Mecca, a crossroad, became
the seat of the Islamic faith."
Mohammed was born in 570
A.D., grew up, got into the caravan
trade and married a wealthy widow.
He had his first revelation at an
early age. a published source says.
"The literal word of God was put
into written form after Mohammed
died. He had begun to preach in
613 A-D., and sent his followers to
Medina, where they formed a spe-
cial society that was not tribal,"
Hanlon said.
Then thieves began to raid the
caravans, and that turned into jihad
- "the conquest of believers over
non-believers," she said. Before
Mohammed died in 632, he had
united the Muslim people under
his own rule and laid the foundation
for the political unification of
Arabia.
As Islam expanded and


absorbed other states, the Islamic
state fell heir to the rich and diverse
Persian empire. The Sunnis and
Shiites split, with the Shia contin-
uing to wait for "the expected one."
The first of four caliphs (non-reli-
gious rulersI ruled from Medina,
and he was the only caliph to die a
natural death. For the Shia, the
major holy centers were in Iraq. In
Islam, there is no natural division
between church and state. Eighty-
five percent of all Muslims today
are Sunni, Hanlon said.
As Europe became more pow-
erful, the Muslim empire con-
tracted, and Turkey emerged as
the most secular state. "The
Muslims decided to remove all
Western influence through Jihad,"
Hanlon said. "Islamicism, funda-
mentalism and militantism,are all
the same.",
The Muslims underwent an
identity crisis after the 1967 war
-with Israel, wondering why the
West had failed as an ally. "But
power over oil restored their pride,"
Hanlon said, "although the mili-
tants see Judeo-Christian society
as enemies of Islam."
Hanlon said the "inner core" of
the militants have a fanatical net-
work in a small population of 500
million. "The U.S. should try to
contain Islam," she said. "The U.S.
against the militants has much sup-
port, but to the Muslims, (religion)
and politics is one and the same."


Terrorism, Hanlon said, is a mil-
itary strategy. "It allows a weaker
power to attack a stronger power,
and whittling away at its opponents
will create fear," she said. It also
builds support in its own popula-
tion, and persuades Americans,
through violence and fear not to
support the U.S. government and
Israel."
Hanlon said the West must tar-
get the civilian population from
which the terrorists come. "We will
have to fight a series of wars with
a'war," she said. "There is much
debate over whether democracy
and Islam are incompatible they
are not."
Peering into the future, Hanlon
says there is a prospect for greater
liberalization in Saudi Arabia with
"probably" no major changes from
within; Lebanon has been flour-
ishing since it broke away from
Syria and she expects a coup in the
near future; in the case of Iran, "it
would help the U.S. to have Iraq,
with its very pro-western culture"
as an ally. Women, the professor
said, have most power in Iraq,
Syria, Egypt and the Soviet
republics.
"What is driving the Islamic
world (today) is globalization. The
younger generation wants to be
part of the global economy," she
concluded.


State finances

percent increase compared to the
previous five years funding more
than 1,230 projects statewide.

DR. DOBSON: Not wmth some

Tension occurs in the most loving and intellt-
gent of amilies.Wh?! Because im is driven by
powerful hormonal forces that overtake and
possess boys and girls in the early pubescent
years.
I believe parents and even some behiv-

of the biochemical changes occurring in puber-
cy.We can see the effect of these hormones
on the physical body. but something equally

Live 12-year-oid suddenly becomes a sullen,
angry, depressed 13-year-old? Some authori-
ties would contend that social pressure alone
accounts for this transformation. simply don't
believe that.
The emotional characteristics of a sud-
denly rebellious teenager are rather like the
symptoms of premenstrual syndrome or
severe menopause in women, or perhaps a
tumultuous midlife crisis m men. Obviously,
dramatic changes are going on inside!

Parents often inadvertently convey dis-

remarks sound foolish.When someone 3sks

These subtle behaviors are signals to
the child that the mother doesn't trust him

closely to avoid embarrassing the whole farm-

Snakebite victim gets


to go home


- at last


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
On June 27, Brandon McClellan,
18, was headed to the barn at his
Nassauville home to get equipment
for changing the oil in his truck.
Paramedics Kent Davis and Tracy
Dunman-Berger were on duty at
Nassau County Fire-Rescue Station
30. Their lives collided just after
12:30 p.m. when McClellan was bit-
ten by a rattlesnake.
Davis and Dunman-Berger met
McClellan for the first time as they
were working to save his life. He
was rushed to Shands Jacksonville,
and nobody knew for certain if he
was going to live or die.
"I went to bed that night think-
ing about him," Dunman-Berger
recalled.
The second time Davis and
Dunman-Berger met McClellan,
four days later on July 1, he was
sitting up in his hospital bed smil-
ing at them. Dunman-Berger imme-
diately gave McClellan a hug after
she and Davis entered the room to
witness a happy ending to a fright-


ening situation.
As it happened, McClellan
would twice more be moved back to
the intensive care unit as his con-
dition worsened. But, finally, a
stronger anti-venin stemmed the
poisons in his body and his condi-
tion improved sufficiently to where,
on Saturday, he finally returned
home.
For the paramedics, working to
save lives is part of their job. But
inevitably, not everyone they work
to rescue will live. And often, their
contact with patients ends as soon
as they get them to the hospital,
leaving them wondering what hap-
pened.
"Unless people get out of the
hospital and come to the station,
we don't know what happens to
them," Davis said.
"When you don't find out what
happens to patients, it's frustrat-
ing," said Dunman-Berger.
So when the two paramedics
received word that McClellan had
survived his ordeal, they were
eager to meet with him. And
McClellan and his family were just

as happy to see them. Nassau
County Fire-Rescue Engineer Matt
Graves and Lt. Scott Hemmingway
also assisted with the call, but were
unable to visit McClellan.
The moment started with shy
smiles, then hugs and handshakes
and a flurry of conversation as
McClellan thanked the paramedics
for their work and they thanked
him and his family for allowing
them to visit.
When asked how he was feeling,
McClellan joked that he was,
"About as good as you can get for
being in the hospital."
After hugs and thank-yous were
exchanged, McClellan and the para-
medics spent several minutes recall-
ing the details of McClellan's brush
with death.
McClellan couldn't remember
much, so he questioned Davis and
Duriman-Berger about what hap-
pened that day.
"One of the first things they did
was sedate me," he said. "I don't
remember a thing after that ... we
reflected on what happened,
because (I missed) details."
Details included one angry, five-
foot rattlesnake.
"He was a full-grown snake,"
Davis said. "... What got me was
how aggressive he was, he wasn't
trying to run away, he was there for
the fight."
The snake was killed and iden-
tified as an Eastern diamondback
rattlesnake.
McClellan, who enjoyed watch-
ing "Venom ER," a show about
snakebites, with his mother, Pamr
McClellan, never dreamed he
would one day be facing a life-or-
death situation like the ones he
watched on television.
"(The rattlesnake) just reached
out and slapped me on the back of
the foot," McClellan said. "It didn't
hurt"

Brandon McClellan visits with paramedics Tracy Dunman-Berger and Kent Davis, who helped
save McClellan's life after he was bitten by a rattlesnake June 27. Dunman-Berger, below left,
and Davis were part of a crew including engineer Matt Graves and Lt. Scott Hemmingway, who
were unable to visit with McClellan at Shands Jacksonville.


The times he had spent watch-
ing "Venom ER" paid off as he
remembered one piece of advice
from the show: stay calm.
"I knew I couldn't freak out, I
actually tried to make sure I could
breathe," he said. "I was definitely
trying to stay calm."
The paramedics say they knew
the critical factor in McClellan's
survival would be speed.
"He was sweaty and real anx-
ious," Davis said. "I was just think-
ing, We've got to load this kid and
go.'"
McClellan's parents, Pam and
Johnny McClellan, vere also terri-
fied. And although Brandon does-
n't remember much after he was
loaded into the ambulance, his
mother remembers all too well how
it felt to be living every parent's
nightmare.
"I asked the doctors,, 'Is he
going to make it?' and they said,
'We can't tell you,"' she said. 'That's
hard to hear as a mom."'
The next few days were filled
with fervent prayers, hope and the

support of friends and family. And
relief came as Brandon was
upgraded from critical to serious
and then fair condition.
"It's been hard for all of us, it's
overwhelming sometimes," Johnny
McClellan said. "... he's an awe-
some kid, and an awesome son."
Johnny and Pam McClellan said
the doctors at Shands praised the
work of the paramedics.
"The doctors in the ER were
saying what a good job you did,"
Pam said to Davis and Dunman-
Berger. "It could have made the
difference."
Brandon was eager to go home,
where he said the first thing he
would do is get some sleep.
"You don't get much sleep in
the hospital," he said.
Then, hell return to his life. A
drummer, Brandon played percus-
sion inte,Fernandj"a Beach HN'h
School marchiig band and jazz
band before he graduated in May.
"I can't wait to go back to drum-
ming," he said.
He's employed as a technician
with Eventcraft, an entertainment
and production services company.
Brandon has worked on the stages
of Super Bowl XXXIX, a James
Brown concert and almost accept-


ed a position as.a roadie for Jesse
McCartney.
He said doctors have told him
he may need to wait a couple of
months to go back to work, but a
full recovery is expected. Brandon
hopes to attend Florida Community
College Jacksonville in the fall, and
he's interested in pursuing a career
in civil engineering. But he's gained
a new outlook on life.
"You just don't think it could
happen to you," he said:"... but you
can go at any time, you're not inde-
structible."
The McClellan family said the
community support they've
received since the incident has
been helpful.
"We do want folks to know we're
very, very appreciative," she said.
Nassau County Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper, who helped coor-
dinate the isit and accompanied
" Davi-. and DittLman-BeBigcr iz 1lOc'
hospital, said it's reassuring for res-
cue workers to, see a happy end-
ing to their work.
"It's not too often they get to
see the other side," he said. "It's
good for them to see that every-
thing they did worked out for the
positive."

County gets new boat with homeland security grant


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office welcomed a new addition in
May a 29-foot Donzi motorboat -
thanks to a federal homeland secu-
rity grant of $132,000.
Equipped with sonar, radar, nav-
igational equipment and life-saving
gear and able to travel up to 65 mph,
the new boat will help the sheriffs
office better patrol the waterways of
Nassau County, Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said.
"We (patrolled) the kingfish tour-
nament, we patrol for holidays and
we answer a lot of calls for the Coast
Guard because we can get there
quicker," Seagraves said, adding
that the new boat and equipment
will also help marine unit detectives
James Ennis and Len Woolard assist
in patrolling the military ports in
Jacksonville and Kings Bay, Ga.
"We have a lot of stuff that goes
on out here," Seagraves said.
Seagraves said he applied for
the grant about a year and a half
ago. The sheriffs office, along with
the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and the
St. Johns County Sheriffs Office,
learned in July 2004 that the grant
had been approved.
The $132,000 became available
in September 2004, and Seagraves
went boat shopping and fell in love
with the a 29-foot Donzi, with a price
tag of more than $130,000.
"Of course it was very expen-
sive, we thought we wouldn't be
able to afford it," Seagraves said.
.So the sheriff's office ordered
another boat, but when that boat
didn't come through, Seagraves was
offered the opportunity to purchase
the Donzi for $90,000, leaving
$42,000 to purchase equipment


SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
A new, 29-foot Donzi motorboat, above, purchased for the

65 mph and is equipped with "state-of-the-art" gear, according
to Marine Unit Detective James Ennis, below.

This past May, Woolard and
Ennis were able to take the Donzi
on its maiden voyage for the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office.
The sheriffs office has two other
boats an 18-foot boat purchased in
1986, and a 24-foot boat purchased
in 2001.
"Because we occasionally have
to go into the ocean, we needed a
bigger boat," Ennis said. "Its a safe-
ty rescue issue."
According to Ennis, the duties of
the marine unit don't end at the
Nassau County line together with
what he called the "joint water task
force," the Nassau marine unit can
be called to assist in a situation
anywhere in the waterways of
Northeast Florida. Ennis said the
task force includes law enforce-
ment and marine patrol agencies
in Northeast Florida, including the
U.S. Coast Guard, Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
and Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
'That way, if anything serious
happens, we've got resources,"
Ennis said.
With 220 square miles of water
and more than 6,000 registered
boats in Nassau County alone,
Ennis and Woolard say they stay
busy just patrolling locally. But as
part of the joint water task force, the
marine unit has assisted other areas
as well.
"We help with special events in
Jacksonville, we worked the Super
Bowl," Seagraves said. "When the
war (in Iraq) started, we dive-
checked submarines at Blount
Island."
The sheriff's office now owns
equipment it previously had to bor-
row from other agencies, Seagraves ,
said, including a "side scan sonar"
that can he dragged behind the
boat over the water. The sonar

picks up images from the ocean
floor and projects them onto a

lying beneath the water.
Seagraves said the marine unit
borrowed that equipment from the
state Department of Natural
Resources in February 2003 during
a body-recovery mission after a
plane crashed off the coast of
Amelia Island, killing four people.
"All four (bodies) were recov-
ered, the aircraft was recovered...
we wanted to do that, for the fami-
lies' sake," Seagraves said. "It was
like looking for a needle in a
haystack, but I said, Yeah, we're
going to do it.'"
Other equipment purchased for
the boat includes bulletproof life-
vests, night-vision goggles, and a
navigational system that's "probably


one of the most state-of-the-art sys-
tems out right now," according to
Ennis.
Seagraves said the grant, which
was 100 percent federally funded
and did not require the county to
have matching funds, was.specifi-
cally for purchasing and equipping
a boat for patrolling waterways.
Seagraves estimated 90 percent of
the money spent to operate the
marine unit comes from grants.
"The taxpayers are not absorb-
ing the cost of the boat (or) the
equipment," Ennis said. ... we
always try to look for a federal fund-
ing source."
Ennis said the new boat should
last 10-15 years, and the boat's
sonar and navigational equipment is
expected to last five or six years.

Notice of Proposed
Cypress Pipeline Project
Southern Natural Gas Company (Southern)' is planning to construct.
.install, and operate 176 miles of new natural gas pipeline called the Cvpress
Pipeline Project in Effingham, Chatham, Bryan, Liberty, Long, McIntosh,
Glynn, Camden and Charlton Counties. Georgia, and Nassau, Duval and Clay
Counties, Florida. The new pipeline is designed to provide firm natural gas
transportation service to markets in south Georgia and north Florida.
Southern is a natural gas company engaged in the operation of an
interstate pipeline system for the transportation of natural gas in the southeast-
ern part of the United States. Southern's main office is located at 1900 Fifth
Avenue North, Birmingham, Alabama 35203. Southern is a subsidiary of El
Paso Corporation.
On June 29, 2005, Southern filed an application with the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in Docket Nos. CP05-388-000 seek-
ing approval for its proposed project. Southern must receive approval from the
FERC prior to construction of the proposed facilities. A copy of the public ver-
sion of the application discussing the project is located at the Live Oak Public
Library in Springfield, Georgia, the Bull Street Public Library in Savannah,
Georgia, the Bryan County Public Library in Richmond Hill, Georgia, the
Liberty County Public Library in Hinesi ille. Georgia. the Long County Public
Library in Ludowici, Georgia, the McIntosh County Library in Darien,
Georgia, the Three Rivers Regional Library in .Bunswick, Georgia, the

Gcorgia. th e.Nats.iu.Couni, Library in Hilliard. Florida, the Dual County
Public LibrarN Main Library Business Section in Jacksonville. Florida. and
the Clay County Public Library Orange Park Branch in Orange Park, Florida,
for anyone that would like to review the application. Any individual has a right
to request a copy of the application directly from Southern by contacting us at
the number below.
The project as proposed will be constructed in three phases. Phase
I will include 166.63 miles of 24-inch diameter pipeline that will begin at
Southern's existing pipeline system near Rincon, Georgia, and interconnect
with four outlets: Atlanta Gas Light Company in Glynn County, Georgia;
Southern's South Georgia Pipeline in Nassau County, Florida; Jacksonville
Electric Authority (JEA) in Duval County, Florida; and Florida Gas
Transmission Company's (FGT) Jacksonville Lateral Pipeline in Clay County,
Florida. Minor modifications will also be made to Southern's Marietta Meter
Station located in Cobb County, Georgia. Phase I is expected to be in service
by May 1, 2007. Phase II will add a compressor station located in Glynn
County, Georgia, and is expected to be in service by May 1, 2009. Phase III
will include 9.8 miles of 30-inch pipe paralleling Southern's existing pipeline
system from Port Wentworth in Chatham County, Georgia, to Rincon in
Effinghamn County, Georgia; one compressor station in Liberty County,
Georgia, and one compressor station in Nassau County, Florida. Phase III is
expected to be in service by May 1, 2010. Upon the completion of all three
phases, the Cypress Pipeline will be able to provide 500,000 Mcf/d of firm
transportation service. Assuming the timely receipt of all required regulatory
approvals, Southern anticipates commencing construction in the fall of 2006.
Should your property be directly affected by the Cypress Pipeline
Project, a representative of Southern should have already contacted you to dis-
cuss the project. Our determination that the Cypress Pipeline Project may
affect your property is based on a preliminary title search. FERC has an infor-
mation pamphlet available entitled "An Interstate Gas Facility on my Land?
What Do I Need To Know?" on its website located at www.ferc.gov that pro-
vides important information about an individual's rights in dealing with a
pipeline project. A copy may also be obtained free of charge by calling
FERC's Office of External Affairs at 1-800-208-1088.
Southern has mailed notices to governmental entities and to
landowners directly affected by this project and to landowners whose property
abuts the project. If you have not received such a notice, your property is most
likely not affected. You have a right to participate in the FERC consideration
of Southern's application and to express your views to the FERC. If you would
like to intervene in Southern's application proceeding, you must contact FERC
by writing to Magalie Roman Salas, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission, 888 First Street, N.E., Washington, DC 20426. You must refer-
ence docket number CPO5-388-000 in your correspondence with the FERC.
Southern will strive to be a good neighbor as it undertakes the con-
struction of its Cypress Pipeline Project. To request a copy of Southern's appli-
cation or to ask questions concerning the Cypress Pipeline Project, please con-
tact Jim Lawn at 1-800-348-4174 or by writing to 777 Gloucester Street, Suite
101, Brunswick, GA 31520.

Sex offender in Callahan


case going back to prison


PHOTOS BY UL SPINKS/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
W.R. "Lucky" Gatlin shakes hands with Nassau
County Fire-Rescue Chief Chuck Cooper, left, during
a presentation of new air bags, above, he purchased
for Station 40 in Hilliard on Friday.


Donation could save lives


LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
WRI "Lucky" Gatlin, a Callahan
businessman who was at the scene
of a fatal crash on US 1 in Hilliard
July 5, presented a set of air bags
to Nassau County Fire-Rescue
Station 40 in Hilliard on Friday.
Gatlin was so disturbed to learn
that the county's firefighters must
share two sets of air bags that he
ordered and paid for a set imme-
diately following the accident They
cost about $3,000.
John Denning, 52, of Nicholls,
Ga., was killed in the collision July
5 between his lumber truck and a
pickup truck. As Denning lay.
pinned beneath the wreckage,
Gatlin held his hand and waited
for the air bags to arrive from Yulee
Station 30. However, Denning died
before the bags arrived.
Friday morning, Gatlin met
with Nassau County Commission-
ers Floyd Vanzant and Marianne
Marshall and fire-rescue person-
nel at Station 40. and presented


them with the air bags.
He also issued a "challenge" to
others to make donations to pur-
chase more air bags for stations
countywide. He said he intends to
open a special account at
Southeastern Bank in Callahan
with a donation.
"I think that some of the busi-
nesses in the area should maybe
follow my lead, and try to make
sure that all the fire trucks have
whatever they need," he said.
Nassau County Fire-Rescue
Chief Chuck Cooper thanked
Gatlin and commended him "for
the generous donation."
Cooper said people drive by
accidents every day, but Gatlin
chose to stop and during that "try-
ing and difficult time," held the'
hand of a dying man.
"Mr. Gatlin, you made a differ-
ence in that man's life," he said.:
Gatlin had 'nothing but.praise-,
for fire-rescue personnel. "They
worked diligently and did the very
best they could possibly do, with
what they had to work with," he


said. "I just happened to be there
and did what I could do."
Lt. Will Elledge asked Station
30 in Yulee to bring air bags to the
scene after attempts to extricate
Denning using hydraulic equip-
ment failed.
Gatlin said both he and his son
are truck drivers and that if they
were in an accident, he would want
fire and rescue personnel to have
all the equipment they needed- at
the scene.
Following Friday's ceremony,
the firefighters showed how the
air bags are used.
Nassau County Fire-Rescue
Station 40 engineer Ray Bullard
fills the once thin and flat air bag
with air from a cylinder, just like
the ones firefighters wear when
going into a fire. The tires were
flat and the frame of the car was
resting on the ground, but the air
bag was so strong it raised the
object just enough so that extrica-
tion of a person trapped inside
could be completed, had that been
necessary.
To get more lifting room, two
air bags may be used together,
with the larger of the two on the
bottom.
Vanzant said equipment is pur-
chased for the county's fire sta-
tions based on four priority levels
determined by fire-rescue.
Priority is gauged by an item's
necessity, how often it is used and
what the budget will allow.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the

city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.

not guilt.
Anyone with information about
criminal activity can contact the

Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach or

Entertainment
system stolen
A big-screen television and
accompanying surround- sound
equipment were reported stolen
from a Bryceville home on
Thursday.
The victim told police he real-
ized the items were missing from
his Ellery Lane home around 7:30
p.m. He told police he didn't know
if the front door of the home was
locked when the theft occurred,
but police found no evidence of
forced entry, according to a report
A neighbor told police she saw
a red truck leaving the residence
during the evening on July 6.
The case is under investigation.

Postal vandal
An employee of the U.S. Post
Office in Callahan arrived at work
Thursday morning to find newspa-
pers strewn across the parking lot
and a crushed drainage pipe.
The victim said the incident
must have occurred between 11
p.m. on July 6 and 5:45 a.m. the
next day. The drainpipe will cost
an estimated $500 to repair, accord-
ing to a report from the Nassau
County Sheriffs Office.
Police are investigating.

Cars burglarized
Six vehicles were reportedly
burglarized at various Dick King
Road homes in Yulee Thursday.
Binoculars and a flashlight were
taken from one truck, which had no
signs of forced entry. At another
home, a woman reported that the
window of her car had been broken
and her purse, photo album and
$60 were stolen from the car.
Another woman told police she
found her car door open and all her
personal papers that had been
stored in the center console of the
vehicle were scattered, but noth-
ing had been taken.
The resident of a nearby home
reported two of his vehicles bur-
glarized, although at the time of
the report he hadn't discovered
any items missing from the vehicle.
A knife was stolen from a sixth
vehicle at another Dick King Road
home.
Police are investigating and no
arrests have been made.


Crank calls
Fernandina Beach police are
investigating four 911 calls that
came from an inactive cell phone on
July 4.
. According to a police report,
the calls reported "various emer-
gency situations at different loca-
tions in the city," including a pos-
sible shooting inside a Lime Street
apartment building.
Each time officers responded
to the calls they "found nothing
upon arrival."
"This could have prevented a
quick response to a real emergency
in another area of the city," said
Patrolman Jack Bradley in the
report
The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office also received reports from
the same phone, according to the
report.

Food fight
A fight over food in the kitchen
of a 14th Street church led to the
arrest of one Fernandina Beach
man after he allegedly armed him-
self with two knives.
Dennis Jerome Campbell, 56,
302 South 14th St., is charged with
aggravated assault. According to
the victim and witnesses, Campbell
threatened the victim as they were
arguing, saying he would "put the
knife" on him.
Campbell was arrested and
taken to the Nassau County Jail,
where he is being held on a $10,002
bond.

Impressive



island art show


BEVERLY MILLER
For the News-Leader
Island artist Joann Speas says in
her juror's statement for the Island
Art Association's First Friday
juried show that "the quality of
work in the range of media was
impressive." Judging from the
comments of community artists
and lay observers alike who attend-
ed the Nouveau Art Show on July
1, that authoritative comment holds
true.
Local artist Richard Hultberg
walked off with Best of Show for
his acrylic painting of "Woodstorks
on Nest."
A graduate of the Massa-
chusetts College of Art with a BFA
in design, he worked for five years
as a technical illustrator for the
Navy Department in Washington,
D.C., and then became head of the
Presentations Section of the NASA
Goddard Space Flight Center in
Maryland.
In his 25 years at NASA,
Hultberg was charged with run-
ning the Goddard Conference
Centers, Publications and Printing
Sections. Retiring in 1985,
Hultberg and his wife, Ellen,
moved to Amelia Island where he
joined the Ialand Art Association.
He has exhibited in the shrimp fes-
tival every year since, receiving
four third-place awards in his cat-
egory except for 2001, when he
received the coveted first-place
award.
Winning the first lace ribbon
for "Catch of the Day" was Norma
Jean McLeod, who won best of
show for her nouveau art
digital photograph "Celtic Affair"
in lthe "Music in the Air" show in
May.
Mcleod lives "on the southern-
most point of Lofton Creek," and
she says she has had passion for
photography ever since she was a
teenager always sporting her
large-format Yashika on family
trips.
Her photography took on a new
dimension eight years ago while
she was in Ireland and purchased
her first digital camera and after
six trips to Ireland, Italy hands Costa
Rica, those places, the birds, "and
three grands" have all been her
constant subjects.
Second Place went to Barbara
Fuller for "Dichotomy," which pro-
'd'es a .v rfi thle iiirh ad
the mill across the way.
Fuller often says she knew she
wanted to be an artist from the
moment her aunt, an art teacher,
gave her her first box of paints.


A graduate of Pratt Institute in
Brooklyn, N.Y., she put aside her
laser-like focus on being a serious
artist from the time she married
until she decided her children
were raised. Then, for 10 years
Fuller was a part owner of and
designed canvases for a needle-
work shop in Millburn, N.J.
Following sale of the shop, she
returned to painting.
Fuller's preferred medium was
watercolor, and she studied with
various well-known New Jersey
artists, particularly Roberta Carter
Clark, "a nationally known award'
winning painter," she says. ,
A past member of several
New Jersey art organizations,
she had exhibited in various
juried shows before moving to
Amelia Island. A member of the
Island Art Association since 1995,
Fuller is also a past president
and board member of the IAA. She
is a board member of the
Jacksonville Watercolor Society,
and has won several awards in
their juried shows. Her work is
also in corporate collections and
private homes "here and abroad,"
she says.
Third place went to Diana
Tyson for "Sundance." Tyson has
been a professional artist for 30
years, joining the Island Art
Association in 1979. One of her
favorite mediums, she says, "is
combined stone lithography and
monotype," which, she explains,
develops beautiful, clear, smooth
color like no other.
The monotypes are applied with
a brayer a pestle-shaped instru-
ment which is a small hand-roller
- onto a zinc plate using oil-based
printer's ink.
"After the design is completed
to the artists satisfaction, the plate
is rolled through the press onto
rag paper," Tyson says. "The col-
oras have been lab-tested and
found to be free from fading under
any light conditions."
Tyson says that when the stone-
lithograph is combined with mono-
types, "the stone is printed, allowed
to dry, and then monotyped," and
although she sees the process as
laborious, "the results are satisfy-
ing," she says.
Tyson also works in watercolor,
oils, acrylics, and ink "changing
mediums when I want to capture a
different scene or nuance in a
paining," she says.
Honorable mentions in the
show went to Sharon Badenoch,
Sherry Ferber, Kay Bartram, Carol
Winner, Sandra Baker-Hinton,
and Marie Nettles.

SPORTS TALK
JOHN L. CRAWFORD




Bowden


a real-life


Matlock

T he University of
S Georgia football
team lost two more
recruits to grades
last week, marking the
fourth and fifth academic
casualties of the Bulldogs'
2005 recruiting class.
Memo to Mark Richt: If a
guy you're recruiting signs
his name with an "X," you
might want to back off and
go after one who actually
picked up a textbook in high
school.
In fairness to Richt, most
coaches probably go after at
least one or two players a
year who they know might
not make the grade. Such is
the nature of college football
a multi-gazillion dollar
business. Difference is,
most successful businesses
go after bright-minded indi-
viduals...
Florida State is making a
late charge to catch up with
Tennessee and South
Carolina in off-season thug-
gery. The Seminoles' latest
poster boy, LB Ernie Sims,
reportedly knocked his
much smaller girlfriend to
the ground and wouldn't let
her get up.
Head coach Bobby
Bowden released this state-
ment after the incident: "Our
athletic department disci-
pline policy for a misde-
meanor goes into effect with
Ernie, and he will be subject
to that until I have all the
facts."
Hey Bobby, a good way
to start your quest for truth
might be a simple conversa-
tion with the police officer
who witnessed the incident
before arresting Sims.
Gonna be kind of hard to
spin this one, hey Bobby.
My guess is that Sims will
receive some kind of "inter-
nal punishment" and will be
suited up for FSU's opener
against Miami...
Meanwhile, University of
Florida fans had better find
a big piece of wood to knock
on because all has been
quiet in Gainesville so far
this summer. Amazing what
the hiring of a coach who
doesn't aspire to be his play-
ers' best buddy will do.
How's this for the biggest
summer controversy in
Hogtown: "Urban Meyer
removes Gator head from
locker room." Quick, some-
one call Bowden. We need
someone who can get to the
bottom of this...
Bowl Championship
Series officials, in an appar-
ent attempt to inject some
normalcy into their illogical
way of naming a college
football national champion,
are toying with the notion of
using instant replay in the
title game. Next they'll be
ijrli. witd the idea of light-
ing the grill before trying to
cook on it...
Long-time Los
Angeles/Oakland WR Tim
Brown, who played last sea-
son in Tampa Bay after 16
seasons with the Raiders,
will sign a one-day contract
and retire with his old team.
What do you want to bet his
daily contract is worth more
than my yearly one? Never
mind, I don't have anything
to bet...
On this day in history:
Reggie Jackson hit a solo
homerun off a light tower in
Detroit to help the American
League beat the National
League 64 in the 1971 All-
Star Game; Philadelphia's
Ed Delahanty became only
the second Major League
Baseball player to hit four
home runs in a single game
in 1896; and the temperature
in Chicago reached an all-
time high 106 degrees
Fahrenheit in 1995.

ended up at 16-under 268. O'Hair finished
one stroke ahead of Hank Kuehne and

After talking last week about
how to avoid falling back-
wards, this week we will
address the dreaded "scoop
our pitches.shot". You have
a delicate pitch shot at hand
and the ball shoots straight
up in the air on impact, get-
ting very little distance.


Here are a couple of tips that will help
you improve your pitching game. The
crux of the problem is that we allow our
right hand to flip under the left one,
resulting in the club to lift quickly and
scoop the ball. The key to success is to
rotate your right hand over your left
hand as you go through impact. Even
more important is to make sure the club-
head stays on line with the target. If not,
the ball will go the direction that the
clubhead is pointing after impact.

Forde (both days) and Jump

(92, even), Sam DuBose (91, plus

Morris (90, plus 3), Wayne
Mortenson (101, even), Doug

Kaufman (84, plus 2) at plus 3.
At plus 1, the team of Mike
Manis (89, plus 3), Bo Alvarez
(74, plus 3), Jack Sipes (92,
minus 5) and Roger Arsenault
(104, even) took fourth place.
The first place winning team
Friday included Alvarez (plus 9),

'We enjoyed a super topwater
bite early in the morning while
fishing an area of Mosquito
Lagoon called the Clinkers,"
Adam Loud said. "However, later
in the day,
we switched
to fishing
with cut bait
to catch our
winning
aggregate
redfish."
Loud and
Cliff White,
both of
Fernandina Terry Lacoss
Beach,
checked out ..
from the OUTDOORS
Edgewater
Marina June 18 and headed for
familiar waters where they had
found fish during practice fish-
ing.
The pair fished with a variety
of lures, including noisy topwater
plugs to stir up a strike from a
big winning tournament redfish.
After landing a few nice redfish
on artificial lures, the pair of
North Florida fishermen
switched to cut baits when they
located a nice school of tourna-
ment redfish.
Their total winning weight of
12.41 pounds was enough to take
home the first-place prize while
competing against a tough lineup
of Florida redfish teams.

Blown away
Bill Pittman of Fernandina
Beach and his partner, Charley
Kegley of St. Augustine, were lit-
erally blown away this past
Saturday while fishing in the
Inshore Fishing Association's
Pro Division, held in Darien, Ga.
"I have never seen anything
like it," Pittman said. "On
Saturday, there were good three-
foot waves at the St Marys jetty
rocks and, when it came time to
run back to Darien, we had to
navigate St. Andrews Sound
where,we literally almost were
blown away by six-foot waves!"
'After two days of compe ititve :..'
Ie-d fishing, PiLttnan sid Kegley
took 12th place in the event.
With a 16th place finish during
the IFA Titusville Pro event, this

total weight of 14.31 pounds.
Georgia also has a slot limit of
18-23 inches, which kept the
weight down for most fishermen.
A 23-inch redfish normally
weighs from 4-5 pounds.
Fishing teams that traveled to
Florida were not allowed to cull
redfish because there wasn't a
Florida culling permit issued to
participating teams.

Too big
Fishing the Chalmete, La.,
ESPN Redfish Cup event recent-
ly proved to be disappointing for
both my son Terry David and
me.
During the first day of the
event, we navigated into a small
duck pond where we met face-to-
face with what we thought was a
perfect tournament red bass!
As the brilliantly-colored red-
fish swam straight for our shal-
low water Triton, T.D. tossed the
red a soft plastic bait, which was
turned down by the fat red. I
instantly cast my soft plastic into
a nearby stand of weeds and,
when the red came within strik-
ing distance, I popped the lure
from the weeds like a crab trying
to escape.
The big red instantly gobbled
up the lure and the fight was on!
The big red ran in and out of
thick weed beds, but the Power
Pro line was living up to its name
and held the hook firmly in the
red's mouth.
Seconds later, T.D. slipped the
net under the tired red and
placed the redfish on our meas-
uring board. With the tail
pinched, it measured just under
the 28-inch legal size limit and
weighed right at nine pounds!
Later that afternoon, the red
was placed on the Redfish Cup
official measuring board, where
officials determined that it was
less than a hair too long! So the
big red was disqualified. We
would have weighed in 16
pounds and placed in the top five
for the day if the red was a legal
fish.
This was the first time that we
have lhad a -rtdfih disqualified
because of being too big!
However, to win on the com-
petitive Redfish Cup tournament
trail, fishing teams are often
pushing the limit to weigh in the
largest redfish that they can
catch.
And sometimes it comes
down to being a "hero or a zero."

PAGE7B :


Talk about reality TV, hurricane we go again


I find myself writing at least
one hurricane column each
year. It never occurred to me
that this year's column would
be written as early as July.
Hurricanes come in August or
September, or so we are led to
believe. We all know that dealing
with hurricanes is part of the
downside of living in paradise, so
we deal with it It has not even
been a year and here we go again.
The television news reporters in
their logo-imprinted slickers are
back on the job dealing with
Dennis. So we tune in and see the
traffic lights swinging in the wind,
palm trees bending in half and
reporters screaming the latest
from their posts in the raging
storm.
Forget reality TV, the last few
weeks the real world has deliv-
ered scenarios that are hard to
believe. There is a lot to watch -
the ongoing drama of a missing


Dickie Anderson

FROM THE
PORCH


girl on a
tropical
island, a
terrorist
attack in
the city of
London and
then to top
it all off a
full-fledged
hurricane
named
Dennis
arrives to
terrify the
Gulf Coast
of Florida.
We
know the


drill and many of us who saw the
destruction caused by a mere
tropical storm last August have
pledged that we are "outta here"
next time the warnings come. As
we review bur hurricane pre-
paredness, Big Guy is smug in his


confidence that we are safe. We
have invested a considerable
amount'of money in a shiny red
generator and probably will never
use it.
Even so we double-check our
hurricane must list. We have lots
of bottled water, are confident that
our prescriptions are up to date,
have batteries in all sizes and
shapes, food for several days, gas
in our vehicles and plenty of dog
food, beer and wine.
We are morbidly fascinated as
we watch the Weather Channel
and wonder when the next
swirling storm will be named and
head our way. In a way living in
Florida is a bizarre form of
Russian roulette. We just hope we
can keep dodging the bullet or
next named storm. By the way,
the next names to come up are
Emily, Franklin and Gert. Gert?
Remember I am just the messen-
ger.


It is interesting to note that
much of the danger and loss of
life comes after a storm hits. As
more and more people purchase
generators, officials are quick to
point out the dangers of this tem-
porary power source. During the
last hurricanes there were many
deaths resulting from carbon
monoxide poisoning.
Folks wouldn't think of run-
ning their cars in the same space
that they live, yet they run gener-
ators in small spaces and are over-
come by the carbon monoxide.
Go figure.
I am torn between sympathy
and irritation as I watch the end-
less telecasts from reporters that
seem determined to put them-
selves in harm's way. How many
ways can a reporter describe
extreme weather? We have heard
them all and repeatedly. They
struggle and compete and rarely
come up with anything interest-


ing. It is ironic that they preach
safely to their listeners and advise
evacuation and staying inside dur-
ing the worst of the storm. Then
like bad little boys (and girls)
they go out and play in the storm.
For basic information, you can-
not beat going right to the source
- the official National Hurricane
Center web site
www.nhc.noaa.gov. It not only
offers the latest on the most cur-
rent storm, but offers lots of addi-
tional information as well. You can
find out which hurricanes have
been the deadliest, the most
expensive, most intense, history
by state and the names of the next
50 or so storms, etc.
So stay alert, you just never
know when we may be the stars
of the latest reality TV show as
another hurricane heads our way.

comments at dickiemm@bellsouth.

Son honored
Mike Kelly holds a copy of the resolution naming the 13th
Street Boy Scout hut for his son Adam Kelly, 17, who was Life
Scout in Boy Scout Troop No. 89.
Fernandina Beach Mayor Ken Walker presented the resolu-
tion to Mike Kelly on July 5, after city commissioners unani-
mously passed the resolution, naming the facility the Adam
Kelly Boy Scout Hut, "as a testimony to his interest in scouting
and dedication to the betterment of his city."
"Adam Kelly left us way to soon," said Commissioner Joe
Gerrity who initiated the resolution. "The entire Kelly family is
very active in Boy Scouts. And I think it would be very appro-
priate to name the Boy Scout hut after Adam." Adam Kelly died
from a work-related accident on June 9.
