If hurricane looms


'Get cash, get
BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
"Get cash, get gas and get out."
That's the message the Nassau
County Emergency Management
Agency has for residents facing
any potential hurricane headed
toward Nassau County.
In the wake of hurricanes
Katrina and Rita and last year's
devastating Florida storms, the
message is being shouted louder
now'than ever before.
Since residents here witnessed
24-hour coverage of the devasta-
tion the latest storms wrought on
Louisiana and the Gulf Coast, Ben
Stiller and Nancy Freeman of
Nassau County Emergency
Management said there's been a
definite increase in the public's con-
cern about what would happen "if


gas, get out
.'-..- ~ a Katrina hit
S' Evacuation,
.9 communications,
J shortages, med-
~if ical needs, storm
surge and flood-
Freeman ing are just some
of the many con-
cerns for which
the county, and its residents, need
to prepare.
Freeman said if there's one mes-
sage that has hit home for people
who followed Katrina, it's the dan-
ger and devastation of flooding.'
People living on the island need
to understand, she said, that any
hurricane would leave much of
Amelia Island underwater.

The county's emergency man-
agement director believes that all
of Amelia Island should be evacu-
ated if a hurricane threatens.
City officials aren't so sure that's
a good idea. The city will express
"grave concerns" about a proposal
to designate the entire island,
including all of Fernandina Beach,
as a "Category I hurricane evacu-
ation zone."
"If this goes into effect, this
whole island has to be evacuated.
Everybody's got to go .... Where's
the (road) capacity, where's the
money for that?" City Manager Bob
Mearns said last week.
Homeowner and business prop-
erty insurance rates could increase
if the proposal is accepted, lMearns


suggested to city
commissioners
Sept. 20.
The implica-
tions for popula-
.H ltion growth also
are significant, he
told them.
Mearns Proposals to
build housing on
land designated
for commercial or industrial devel-
opment along Amelia Island
Parkway, for example, would be
thwarted by the change, which he
said would freeze the future land
use map in place.
'These things tonight won't
even happen. Forget it. Thafs over

als for Lynndale Lakes or Townes

Landfill



fee hike



to $65
BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Nassau County residents will
pay $20 more to use their landfill
nextyear. The county's residential
assessment fee will increase from
545 to 865 etfective Oct. 1.
But the damage Nwasn't as bad as
it could have been.
Under other scenarios dis-
cussed by County Administrator
Mike Mahaney, the fee could have
more than doubled to $95.
The landfill assessment is an
annual fee assessed to every
Nassau County household. The
county has had to take a hard look
at the fee due to major concerns
about the longevity and cost of the
West Nassau County landfill.
At its current rate' of flow, the
landfill Mill be full by 2008. Thafs
well before the bond is scheduled
to be paid in 2013. So the county is
faced with paying millions of dollars
for five years to pay off the bond -
while it receives no income from
the landfill.
As a first step, the county will no
longer accept trash from its largest
out-of-county customer, Clay
County, when that contract expires
in September 2006.
That would dramatically
decrease flow and extend the life of
the landfill well past the bond's
expiration date. But it also means
the county won't receive $3.5 mil-
lion a year in revenue.
So the second step is to raise
the residential assessment fee to
help cover the shortfall. Previous
attempts to raise the residential fee
the past two years were not
approved by the Nassau County

Safety hazard closes golf club dining room


GLENDAS.JENKINS
News-Leader
The city has closed the main
dining room at the municipal golf
course clubhouse for emergency
repairs more than three weeks
after a structural engineer docu-
mented damage and apparently
more than a year after cracks were
first noted.
Fernandina Beach Fire Marshal
Jeffrey Bunch said he ordered the
area closed Thursday after receiv-
ing a structural engineering report
that verified problems in the roof
truss system.
"I concluded from (the engi-


neer's report) that the room has
serious problems," Bunch said.
"For us to allow them to continue
using that room was waiting on
something to happen."
He said weak trusses could con-
tribute to the failure of other truss-
es."We could be responding to alot
of injured people" if roof trusses
failed during a public event, Bunch
said.
The main dining room is used
for wedding receptions and other
public gatherings as well as golf
course functions.
"The (repair) cost is estimated
to be in the $20,000 range and is
expected to take 4-5 weeks to com-


'If I had received the report on (Sept. 2). we
would have done something then. Knowing
that it's a dangerous room to be in, I can't allow
(its use) to continue in clear conscience.'

of the problem," Mearns wrote.

City golf professional John
Vickers confirmed Monday that
the building official and fire mar-
shal had "a little bit of a safety con-
cern." But all other rooms inside


the club, including the snack bar
and golf pro shop, remain open,
he said.
The dining room has noticeable
sagging near the doors, Fire Chief
Danny Leeper said.
"It did appear to be getting
worse" when city officials inspect-
ed the site Friday, he said.
"When I saw the trusses were
pulling away, my concern was we
don't need to put people in there"
due to the potential for future col-

ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Home generators can be a
great convenience or a killer.
Due to the increase in the num-
ber and severity of tropical
storms in our state, disaster pre-
paredness campaigns, and the
availability of home generators,
more and more people are invest-
ing in them to keep things func-
tioning in their homes during
power outages.
However, there is potential for
tragedy if certain safety measures
are not observed. After the four
major hurricanes that struck
Florida during Aug. 13-Sept 25,
2004, a Consumer Products
investigation attributed six deaths


S'to carbon
Ig A monoxide
.^ poisoning
caused by
-. generators.
S Of 167 per-
sons hospi-
talized for
nonfatal CO poisoning during this
period, almost all were attributed
to misplacement of portable,-
gasoline-driven generators. The
number of cases peaked within
three days of the landfall of each
hurricane.
The majority of nonfatal cases
occurred overnight, with patients
waking in the early morning with
some or all of these symptoms:
headache, nausea, dizziness,
vomiting and shortness of breath.

Margie P. Lee
Margie P. Lee, 74, of
Nassauville (formerly of Jack-

Sept. 24, 2005, at Riverwood
Nursing Center in Jacksonville.
A native of Raiford, she had
resided most of her live in the
Northeast Florida regions of
Nassauville and Jacksonville.
Throughout her life she was a
dedicated mother and homemak-
er. She was a longtime member
of Springhill Baptist Church,
where she was a member of the
jw ,'.r R

care of her lanmil, especi. l er
children.
She was preceded in death by
her son, Hobart Lee Jr.
Her survivors include her
daughters, Bertha Phillips and


Medical records indicated that
these patients typically used gen-
erators to power refrigerators,
fans and air conditioners while
sleeping.
You can't see or smell carbon
monoxide, and the levels that
may cause death can occur quick-
ly with the use of generators,
which are high producers of the
poisonous gas. But generators
can be used safely if certain pre-
cautions are taken. Here are
some safety rules to follow,
offered by the Florida
Department of Health:
Never use a generator
indoors or in partially enclosed
spaces like garages.
Opening doors and win-
dows or using fans will not pre-


vent CO poisoning.
Locate generators out-
doors, away from doors, indoors,
vents that attach to the side of
our house, and air conditioning
units that could pull the CO
indoors.
Use battery-operated CO
alarms in your home that have
met the latest safety standards.
Follow the manufacturer's
instructions for generators and
CO alarms.
Test CO alarms frequently.
Get fresh air immediately if
you feel sick, dizzy or weak and
call the Poison Control Center at
1-800-222-1222.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28,2005 NEWS News-Leader


STORM Continuedfrom 1A
Surges could occur both from
the Atlantic on the island's east side
and the Amelia River on its west.
Some areas of the island could
expect a 20-foot surge from a
Category 4 or 5 storm.
A storm surge of that magni-
tude could also wipe out both the
Shave Bridge to A1A and the
George Crady Bridge on the
island's south end, cutting off all
access except by air or boat Entire
roadways could be washed away,
leaving those who did stay com-
pletely isolated- or trapped. Areas
on 'the West Side of the county
should expect serious flooding,
with potentially 20 to 30 inches of
rain falling within 24 hours.
"You might make it through the
storm. but there's no power for
three weeks. Police and fire might
not be able to access you for days.
You're completely cut off," said
Freeman, the county's emergency
management director.
While some residents inevitably
stay in the face of any storm the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office has
'said it will go door to door asking
those people for names and phone
numbers of their next of kin stud-
ies show that most people will have
a way off the island and will leave.
The decision to stay or go will
have to be made early for residents
on the island. For safety reasons,
the Shave Bridge will close once
sustained winds reach 45 mph. In
the event of a large storm, that
could begin to occur with the eye
still 250 miles from landfall.
"On the island, people should
be focused and making prepara-
tions with the storm 48 hours away.
People should be ready to go any-
time after that point, even before
the evacuation is official," Freeman
said.
As always, she said to have med-
ication, hygiene products, extra
clothes and valuables packed in a
closet and ready, to go at a
moment's notice. Take one car with
a full tank of gas, and prepare to be
stuck in traffic for several hours.
Carry plenty of cash and have
enough food and water for five
days. Have a predetermined desti-
nation that takes you several hours
inland. All family members should
designate a contact person in an
unaffected region of the country
to call and confirm their location
and safety at the earliest opportu-
nity. All communications in a storm-
affected area might be unavailable
for days..

Shelters from a storm
Nassau County has four primary shelters designated at
Yulee Middle School, Hilliard Middle-Senior High School
and Hilliard Elementary. Yulee Middle School is the one
facilitybuilt with an "enhanced hurricane protection area."
The other schools have been evaluated by the Red Cross
and meet certain standards for structural strength, space
and flood protection.
Once completed, the new Yulee High School will also
serve as a shelter with an enhanced protection area. Yulee
Elementary and Callahan Intermediate will serve as sec-
ondary shelters if needed.
Nancy Freeman, director of Nassau County Emergency
Management, warned conditions at these shelters will be
spartan.
Each school keeps a three-day supply of food and water,
however, residents are encouraged to bring as much of
their own provisions as possible.
"We tell people to bring anything that makes you com-
fortable cots, lawn chairs, air mattresses, lounge chairs.
blankets, piHows, anything that's light and portable."
Because sewage and running water may not be avail-
able, more than a thousand people at each shelter may rely
on portable toilets.
The emergency operations center phone number is
(904) 548-4980. The web site is www.nassaufl-em.com.


Katrina has also enforced the
realization that people should be
prepared to be away from their
homes for more than a week.
There may not be anything to
come back to. For those leaving
the area, have a long-term contin-
gency plan if at all possible.
"If we have a class four or five
hurricane hit here, you're talking
about widespread devastation,"


ARREST Continued from LA
a.m. they found the Pearsons and
one witness who said about 15 to
20 black men had kicked the vic-
tims, who were white. However,
investigators have said they do
not believe the incident was racial-
ly motivated.
Sheriffs detectives questioned
several students at Fernandina
Beach High School as witnesses,
but last month Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said


Freeman said. "In some areas,
there may be one house left stand-
ing per block. People may not have
a job to come back to. They may
lose all their possessions.
Somehow, you're going to have to
find a temporary new job, maybe
a permanent one. The evacuation
could mean a permanent reloca-
tion."
bprice@fonewsleader, com


the three detectives investigating
the case were getting conflicting
stories.
Quintin Pearson suffered a
concussion, a broken nose and
was hospitalized for five days;
Jackie Pearson had a concussion,
severe bruises and a possible
neck injury and was released from
the hospital after 24 hours,
Albertie is being held at the
Nassau County Jail-on $100,002
bond.

CITY Continued from 1A
of Amelia.
That's not Nancy Freeman's
concern. Freeman, director of
emergency management for
Nassau County, said her job is "pub-
lic safety," to protect lives in the
event of a hurricane.
Freeman said she is concerned
not only about flooding which,.
now determines where evacuation
zones are set- but also about trans-
portation, communications and
recovery challenges.
Designating the entire island
would enhance "the ability for offi-
cials to convey to the public that
they're in an evacuation zone,"
Freeman said.
Now, based on flood maps, parts
of the central island from neigh-
borhoods near the lighthouse south
to Simmons Road are not in an
evacuation zone for Category 1 hur-
ricanes because of their height
above sea level. Category 1 hurri-
canes (sustained winds of 75 mph
or more) are the weakest of the
five categories.
Freeman made her recommen-
dation after what she called "an
extensive review" following four
hurricanes that hit Florida last
summer. That included consulta-
tion with city and county officials
and hurricane experts, a review
of storm data and a March
public hearing in Nassau County,
she said.
"I have determined that the cur-


rent hurricane evacuation zones,
as depicted in the 1998 study, are
insufficient to protect the lives, safe-
ty and property of Nassau County
residents in potentially vulnerable
areas," she wrote Mearns on Sept.
13.
Fernandina Beach resident
Clinch Kavanaugh, who objected
to the idea at the March 22 public
hearing, reiterated his concerns to
city commissioners last week. He
said much of Nassau County is
lower than some neighborhoods
on the island.
"Some of the highest land in
this county is on this island,"
Kavanaugh said. "Why anybody
that's living on 50 or 40 feet of
height in this county would want to
leave and go to somewhere like
Callahan in a hurricane is absurd.
I find the whole thing bizarre."
"You go out in the county... the
water doesn't drain off. It just sits
there," he said.
"I know we don't have any hur-
ricane shelters on this island,"
Kavanaugh added. "To my knowl-
edge, we don't have one bottle of
water anywhere for anybody."
That's part of the problem,
Freeman said. "We can't get water,
ice and food" to those who might
stay behind if a hurricane damages
highway bridges and the airport.
She said she's also concerned
about disruptions to communica-
tions, such as those that occurred
after Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf
Coast.

She pointed as well to the evac-
uation difficulties that occurred
after Hurricane Floyd approached
Northeast Florida in 1999. Cars
jammed roadways for hours as res-
idents sought to leave.
An update of the Northeast
Florida Hurricane Evacuation
Study of 1998 was prompted by the
effect of hurricanes Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne in Florida
last summer.
The Northeast Florida Regional
Planning Council will consider pro-
posed changes after the end of this
hurricane season on Dec. 1. They
would be implemented by June 1 to
coincide with the 2006 hurricane
season.
Mearns will present the city's
objections in writing to the region-
al planning council. City commis-
sioners also will seek a meeting
with county commissioners to dis-
cuss the matter.
Commissioners also agreed to
recommend a candidate for a
Coastal High Hazard Study
Committee announced by Gov. Jeb
Bush earlier this month.
Bush said that committee will
review coastal development and
make recommendations for
changes in coastal high hazard
areas by February so he can solic-
it action from the Florida
Legislature.

I Florida's consumer confidence
tumbled 11 points to 78 in
September, its lowest level in 12
years, reflecting fears about the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina
combined with higher fuel costs,
University of Florida economists
report. The last time the consumer
confidence index dropped to 78
was in October 1993.
The biggest decline this month
was in the component measuring
perceptions of U.S. business con-
ditions over the next year, which fell
18 points to 57, its lowest level since
August 2002.
The other four components also
dropped. Perceptions of personal
finances now compared to a year
ago fell seven points to 79, while
perceptions of personal finances
one year from now declined seven
points to 90. Perceptions of long-
term U.S. economic conditions over
the next five years dropped 10
points to 70, and perceptions as to
whether it is a good time to buy
big-ticket consumer items fell 17
points to 92.

"We also do birthday parties,"
said Todd. "The birthday girl is
presented with a tiara and receives
a second gift of a mini-scrapbook.
We work with the guests as they
create their books."
Their own strong interest in the
craft, and the fact that they had to
travel so far for supplies, led the
three women to the idea of opening
a supply store here. "I've always
dreamed of owning my own busi-
ness," said Todd, "and because this
type of business reflects our own
special interest in the craft, it is so
much fun!"
"Don't wait until you have
grandchildren to do this," adds
Barbara Byrd. "Record and present

The proprietors are eager to

"The effect of Hurricane Katrina
combined with already rising ener-
gy prices have taken their toll on
consumers in Florida," said Chris
McCarty, director of the survey,
research center at UF's Bureau of
Economic and Business Research.
"Prior to Katrina, energy prices had
already risen to a level that was
making life difficult for some con-
sumers. The short-term effects on
energy prices from shutdowns in
the Gulf Coast refineries added to
that"
The turn of events does not
bode well for the upcoming holi-
day season, he said.
"It is fairly certain" that the
effects of high energy prices, high-
er interest rates and concern over
the hurricanes will result in a very
weak holiday shopping season," he
said. "Retailers are no doubt brac-
ing themselves for that."
The Florida Consumer Attitude
survey is collected monthly.

HEATHER PERRY
News-Leader
As the founding partners of
Amelia Massage Associates, Inc.,
Mike .and Nancy Shores saw
"first-hand" how their clients ben-
efited from embracing a healthy
lifestyle. A massage client sug-
gested they go to Jacksonville to
try a Smoothie King smoothie.
In Mike's words, "We went. We
tasted. The rest is history."
Shores and his wife opened
the Smoothie King Nutritional
Lifestyle Center on Sept. 12.
Shores says he and his wife
wanted to "bring our community
fun. tasty, healthy alternatives to
unhealthy fast food." Becoming
part of the Sniuothie King fran-
chise fulfilled this desire.
In addition to the trademark
thick, cool smoothies made with
real fru it, natural juices and nutri-
tional enhancers, Smoothie King
also offers healthy snacks such as
turkey jerky and gourmet stuffed
breadsticks in six flavors called
"Kingstix." Nutritional supple-
ments and "Heaterz," hot bever-
ages, are also available.
The mission statement of
Smoothie King states the com-
pany's goal is to "relentlessly influ-
ence and help more and more
people achieve a healthier
lifestyle."

the floodwaters caused most dam-
age after the levies broke.
This does not sit well with
uninsured residents, however,
who have seen their houses swept
away or severely damaged by
Katrina.
The federal government subsi-
dizes flood insurance to make it
more affordable.
This is born from a belief that
more people would carry it if the
cost was less. Not so, in many
instances.
If you carry it, flood insurance
can be like a bridge over troubled
waters. However, if you do not
have it and a flood occurs, it is like
being in a boat and not having
a paddle.
Steve Nicklas is a financial
adviser who lives on Amelia Island.


T he photographs from
New Orleans show peo-
ple wading through
chest-deep water where
there used to be cars and streets
before Hurricane Katripa.
The murky water is just part of
their problems, however. Many
residents there are in over their
heads with troubles relating to
insurance coverage.
As victims reconstruct their
lives after a disaster, an insurance
settlement is an essential start.
However, oftentimes victims do
not have insurance that protects
against damage from floods or ris-
ing water. Flood insurance is sub-
sidized by the federal govern-
ment, and is not even that
expensive.
When you watch the footage
from Hurricane Katrina's tantrum,
it appears most of the damage to.
New Orleans is from the flood
waters not from winds or
falling trees or rain or other hurri-
cane-related fury.

But when an insurance

whether the damage was caused

policy covers wind damage; the
other covers flooding. They are
separate.
For instance, if part of a house
was damaged by high winds, the
homeowners' policy usually
applies. If additional damage came
from floods, then the flood insur-
ance kicks in. It might just be a
matter of people being confused
about what damage is covered by
which insurance policy.
So people go at it alone without
flood insurance. Reports from
Louisiana tell of unsuspecting,
uninsured.residents now suing
their insurance companies for
damages.
The attorney general from
Louisiana is reportedly support-

collect insurance settlements.
They are contending that
insurance companies are decep-

that an adjuster's decision is just

Insurance losses are already esti-

In a typical homeowners' poli-
cy, it is dearly written that dam-

from coverage. This is where the
flood insurance coverage fills in

There are disagreements with-

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28,2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Unqualified and incompetent
Probably the best thing for me to do is disregard
completely the ranting of incompetent (Amelia Island
Mosquito Control District) commissioners, primari-
ly Jack Bass, and forget it. But I have been hankering
for a good political fight for some time now so let's
get to it.
First, two commissioners have never stood for
election. They received their appointments through
political cronyism from the state.
Second, I served a couple of years with Mr. Bass
on the commission. Almost every meeting Mr. Bass
would show up and relate gossip, problems, secret
information, political happenings, etc. etc. We could,
however, never confirm this drivel. But Mr. Bass
always had his "deep throat" contacts.
When he says, and I quotehim directly from the
News-Leader ("Who should direct mosquito control,"
Sept. 23), "There were problems, major problems
that almost ripped this district to shreds," he's not only
fantasizing he's a liar!
Thirdly, during my years as director and com-
missioner (a total of nine), Chairman Troy Pitts and
I worked together and accomplished many things. I
have listed a few of them below:
1. We ran a district that received accolades from
other agencies and the public in our efforts to control
mosquitoes.
2. Identified and corrected literally hundreds of
problem areas that once bred mosquitoes. These
were eradicated and no longer breed mosquitoes.
, 3. We had the best response time of any district to
complaints about mosquitoes.
4. Reduced taxes in real understandable dollars
from $60 per $100,000 property evaluation to $16 per
$100,000, According to my calculation that's almost a
400 percent decrease.
5. I suppose we should point out we've never had
a case of West Nile nor encephalitis in the district.
1 Troy, I understand your dilemma of not having a
technical person on the' board and recently losing
your director. As you are aware I do hold all the cer-
tificates and licenses from the state to direct a district.
I appreciate you contacting me to help during the
interim while you try to find another director. You
know as well as I do that's not going to be an easy task
with the reputation this district has had with directors.
I must admit I probably would take you up on your
offer. However, to work with your unqualified and
incompetent colleagues would be too much.

Let' make deal
Watching the city commission meeting (Sept. 20)
once again brought to mind the onerous practice in
our city referred to as "developer's agreement"
The item being considered was the Lyndale Lakes
condominium development proposal to build 180
units near the airport. After a session open to the
public, which had drawn a large crowd of citizens


speaking against the proposal, our commissioners
discussed the issue leading to a vote up or down on
this agenda'item. So far, business as usual.
(Commissioner John) Crow indicated that he
would vote for the proposal based'on his belief that it
was inevitably going to happen, so why oppose it
now? How many times have we heard this kind of
defeatist logic in the past? Three other commission-
ers stated their position, each supporting the Planning
Advisory Board's decision to deny the development
proposal.
Of particular interest was the discussion segment
that involved Commissioner (Beano) Roberts. He
stated that he had made it clear to the developer that
if the number of units were reduced he would vote in
favor of the proposal. Crow agreed to accept this idea
as an amendment to his motion to approve. Lo and
behold, a developer representative approached the
podium stating that the developer would accept the
lower density.
Questioned by the commissioners about the pro-
priety (legality) of making a last-minute deal like this,
City Attorney (Debra) Braga appeared to feel strong-
ly both ways; she confessed that she did not know how
the commission was going to vote, suggesting that she
would support either side. Is this why we're paying her
more money than any other city employee? City
Manager (Bob) Mearns was conspicuously silent
during this entire procedure.
The final vote was 3 to 2 to deny the developer's
proposal. That's the good news. The fact that the
vote could have gone the other way, thus aborting the
process that begins with the PAB reviewing and for-
warding an opinion to the commission, should serve
as a warning to all concerned citizens.
I have expressed my opposition to developer's
agreements in the past. Ms. Braga has agreed that the
city should not get involved in these deals. My pres-
ent concern is the pervasive atmosphere among city
officials and certain commissioners that larger, more
dense developments are positive and that PAB involve-
ment is considered as "outside interference" rather
than an integral part of the process.

'Classism'
J just witnessed the "racism," orwould it be better
said "classism," of the 21st century. It took place dur-
ing the Fernandina Beach City Commission meeting
Sept. 20. A mega-developer stated to paraphrase -
"Oh, the people who will live on the land we want to
develop at the airport would never want to be seen at
the public beaches of the city of Fernandina. God for-
bid their car tags are spotted at Peters Point on a
sunny day they have their own 'private' beaches to
sunbathe at their 'private clubs'." Yet if the development
that will make him and his pack of dark-suited cronies
very rich is built, it will necessitate a new fire station,
extra police protection, i.e., increasing the level of
service paid for by the taxpayers of the city of
Fernandina Beach. Yes, your chosen few will com-

Evacuate by boat ,
There have been a few columns dealing with the
possible inability to vacate portions of Nassau County
on a timely basis due to a lack of planning for roads
and bridges because of monetary constraints. Gee,
what were the writers thinking as they omitted ref-
erence to the possible use of our $3-plus-million dol-
lar boat ramp, which perhaps could be used to launch
boats to go from the island to the mainland! The plan-
ning to build another on the far side of the river to
receive boats may already be in the planning stage by
our astute county leadership. I expect nothing less
from them.

Thestorm next time
Like most people in the aftermath of Katrina, I
am concerned about being prepared for the next big
storm if it should hit Nassau County. My family and
I have taken seriously the many suggestions for hav-
ing emergency food, clothing, batteries, etc., and we
are ready to evacuate in a very short time should
that become necessary. We are being told that for a
Category 1 storm the.entire Amelia Island and parts
Yu-6lt4iW West Ra&rfV wit.4iPea4Iltt ,'*Wrlthiq
is awi -e:precattibhnitis-ttenOdgh'iy~di ltdever
body to leave. The experience in New Orleans has


shown that much more needs to be done.
:I have many serious concerns about the pre-
paredness of our county. So far there doesn't seem to
be any plan beyond putting up signs on A1A pointing
west (Where else would they point?) I would like to
know how the 11,000 residents of Amelia Island and
another several thousand in Yulee are all going to get
on the same road at once. Where are we supposed to
go other than west? When we get there, are there any
plans for temporary shelter, medical services, food,
sanitation etc.? (There is no domed stadium in
Hilliard.) What about those who are infirm, elderly,
requiring medical services and lacking transportation
to leave on their own? Unless some serious planning
is done now, we could be in for a repeat of Katrina right
here in Nassau County. The question is not will we get
hit by a big storm, it's only when.

A park for Yulee
With the rapid development in Yulee and the num-
ber of families with small children here, I think it is
about time.that Yulee has a public park %with a play-
ground for our children to utilize. I have to say that it
is saddening to have to drive to Fernandina for my
young children to go to the playground, only to find the
state of the parks is less than stellar.
On our last trip to Central Park we found four beer
bottles and endless amounts of trash. Not ideal to
contend with considering my youngest is 1 and very
curious. I left disappointed, even though I feel like
that is the best park on the island.
My 4-year-old wants to go to the park today; I've told
him he will have to settle for playing at home. It's not
worth the drive to town only to be disappointed by the
state of the park.
When can we have a park in Yulee for our kids to

The city commission had a good night Sept.
20. They rejected Lyndale Lakes and
Townes of Amelia (both were and are pro-
posed developments along the Amelia
Island Parkway), and they rejected a proposed re-
definition of density that would have allowed more
units on a given piece of land.
Opponents of the two developments raised perti-
nent, sensible objections, some of which included:
1) the wisdom, regarding land use, in allowing the
construction of over 500 residential units so near
the airport, 2) a concern about the Parkway, an
already overburdened two-lane road,*and its ability
to handle the increased traffic, 3) new demands" on
the city's infrastructure, particularly police, fire and
recreation, 4) since these are not "stand alone" proj-
ects, the cumulative impact of these and other devel-
opmentiproposals for the area, particularly Crane
Island, will add over 1,200 new residential units to
the area, simply exacerbating the problems identi-
fied in numbers 1, 2 and 3.
Another concern raised by opponents is particu-
larly timely, and relevant, that-of encouraging an
increased population in an area potentially ill-
equipped to handle an emergency evacuation.
We have all witnessed, with a sense of profound
sorrow and empathy, the devastation visited on the
Gulf Coast regions of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama and Florida. Our hearts go out to all of
those who've lost loved ones, and to those rendered
homeless. Many have lost everything, and their
heartache can scarcely be imagined.
Some political pundits in the "chattering class,"
though, all with 20/20 hindsight, all with political
interests to protect, stated that natural disasters
have to be expected from time to time, and that liv-
ing in a city 20 feet below sea level carries some
risks. Also, some said, living in an area that has to
be surrounded by levees, well, shouldn't common
sense come into play here?
This circling of the wagons by these partisan
protectors lead me to wonder how we, here on
Amelia Island and throughout Nassau County,
would fare in similar discussions after similar
events. Consider:
We've allowed and encouraged developers and


builders to destroy the
^ island's primary, secondary
0 and tertiary dune systems,
our natural defense against
erosion and storm surge.
We've allowed and
encouraged development in
areas along AlA that are, or
were, wetlands. Hundreds,
no, thousands of truckloads
of fill dirt were hauled in to
elevate properties unsuited
Ron Sapp for development otherwise.
...- We've allowed and
encouraged the development
THE NO and transformation of lands
'SPIN' ZONE all across this county that
should have been left alone.
Swamps, hammocks and ponds have been drained
and covered over with subdivisions and gated com-
munities; these same areas, along with acres of pre-
cious hardwoods, have been filled or cut down to
facilitate the planting of pine trees monoculture at
the expense of nature.
We've allowed the county to secure a $77 mil-
lion bond issue to build a judicial annex, read, court-
house, and jail in what is, essentially, a swamp. The
phrase "wetland mitigation" should not be lost on
the people of this county.
So what would the "chattering class" have to say
about us? Hopefully, well never find out. Hopefully,
we'll never experience such natural calamities here.
But if the unthinkable happens, I hope we won't
have too many regrets. .
Some decisions can't be undone. We can't un-
build oceanfront development, we can't put back the
wetland now covered over, despite our marriage to
the ridiculous concept of mitigation, and we can't
un-build the judicial annex, would that we could. We
can, however, make responsible decisions regarding
our future.
A majority of the city commission took a step
toward that at their last meeting. Commissioners
Joe Gerrity, Ken Walker and Bill Leeper decided to
forego temporary, short-term financial gain in favor
of sound, long-term, responsible decision-making;.


We can't un-build oceanfront develop-
ment, we can't put back wetland
now covered over, we can't un-
build the judicial annex. We can, how-
ever, make responsible decisions
regarding our future.

Aside, I hope you've noticed that Commissioner Bill
"Leeperis routinely mentioned in all discussions
relating to responsible decision-making. His maturi-
ty, sound reasoning and consistency are much
appreciated on a commission that is becoming
increasingly marked by its inconsistency.
My wish, and I know ifts only that, is that the
decision-making process, whatever these commis-
sioners employed, epiphany, insight, whatever, car-
ries over to other decisions awaiting action. If that
happens they will 1) reject any zoning and density
change for Crane Island. I'm still hoping for no
development on the island, but when Commissioner
John Crow states that, "Not even the president can
stop it (development)," well, I'm a little concerned,
2) reject any and all requests for changes to the
comprehensive plan, future land use map and land
development regulations, 3) insist that all codes,
rules, regulations, ordinances or laws relating to
development be strictly enforced, and 4) begin a
realistic review of the comprehensive plan and be
ready to make changes that reflect an enlightened,
progressive, realistic, sober commitment to future
generations.
Such decision-making might improve the confi-
dence level of a citizenry bewildered by the incon-
sistency of local officials, at least in regard to land
use, and restore a faith that, whatever the past, deci-
sion will'be made with an eye to the future.
Failing the above, we might just have to rely on
the collective mercy of the "chattering class."

V TO THE EDITOR


Fire captain

In reference to the article "Firefighter paid
$104,000 after overtime" (Sept 21), some informa-
tion is missing from it. First of all, I am a 20-plus-
year veteran of Nassau County Fire-Rescue. I have
never jumped from fire department to fire depart-
ment. Nassau County is my home and that's where I
prefer to work.
I started as an EMT driver in May 1985. The
starting salary then was $11,430 a year, I left anoth-
er job that was paying $15,000 a year, but had no
retirement I made the choice to better myself by
going into another profession, that being fire-res-
cue. At that time I did not foresee making the above-,
mentioned salary. My base salary is now $59,199.52.
Second, nowhere in the article does it state that I
also get seniority pay. It is in our union contract,
which cites the county's policies and procedures on
seniority pay. The policy states, "Full-time employ-
ees employed by Nassau County will receive $30
per month seniority pay for each five (5) years of
service."
Third, the reimbursed sick leave is also negotiat-
ed into the union contract. A few years back, we
were allowed to accrue sick leave continuously. The
reason for that was if you got injured or sick off the
job you would have the sick leave available (to cover
you while you are recovering). It was then negotiat-

ed that you could only accrue up to the maximum
allowable for sell-back at retirement, that being 90
days, which equates to 2,160 hours. The hours
earned above the 2,160 during the upcoming year
are sold back in December. As a bonus to the
employees that do not call in sick for six months,
they earn 48 hours of leave, or two days. That was
added into my salary this year because I sold it back,
to the county (at straight time). Again, this is taken
from the county's policies and procedures. I am able
to sell this back because I do not call in sick.
Fourth, article 16 of the bargaining agreement,
section 16.5 states that "State-certified firefighters,
engineers, fire lieutenants and fire captains working
for the county who possess a valid state of Florida
paramedics certification will receive up to $2,000

annually (.6868 per hour) for that certification."
That was part of the incentive for me to go to para-'
medic school. To be an officer in this department
you must have that certification.
Granted, most citizens may or may not under-
stand how firefighters work. Nassau County's
schedule for the fire department is that we work 24
hours on and 48 hours off. That equals out to 121 or
122 days at work (one shift will have 121 days, the
other two will be 122 days all year). Most employees
(outside the fire department) usually work eight
hours a day, 40 hours a week. They get to go home,
eat with their family and spend time with them.
Firefighters are gone for 24 hours normally, and
there is a possibility that they may never come
home. We are not promised tomorrow, nor do we
know God's will.
My schedule for this year would have been for
121 shifts. Yes, I love my career. As stated, my
schedule allows me to work if someone calls out
sick or takes scheduled vacation or annual leave.
Unfortunately, this year I have worked 34 shifts of
overtime. This has been an unprecedented year for
my two fellow captains to be sick or injured. Trust
me, I would rather they be healthy and at work than
off sick. That also means I see my wife and other
family members 34 days less.
Ask any firefighter if they chose this profession
to get rich and they will tell you no. They chose it
because they enjoy helping people that need help in
an emergency. They enjoy showing the apparatus to
children that come to their stations. They enjoy col-
lecting money for MDA during Labor Day. They
enjoy going into burning buildings when everyone
else is leaving. They enjoy doing what nobody else
will do.
We would rather see the citizens we serve at
their best instead of their worst. But it is at their
worst they call on us and we will always be there,
24-7, 365.,
My position in the department is a shift supervi-


sor (captain). On a daily basis I am responsible for
the wellbeing of 28 employees. That means respond-
ing with six stations, anywhere in the county. I
respond to structure fires, severe car crashes, haz-
ardous material incidents and other incidents that
deem my presence. If any one of those employees is
injured, it is my responsibility to start notification
(to the fire chief) and do the paperwork for the
department.
It is my responsibility (on a daily basis) to fill
scheduled vacations, annual leave and last-minute
sick leave. This in itself is a time-consuming task. I
am also charged with making sure that all the fire
engines and rescues are capable of responding. As it
happens so often on the West Side of the county, I
am responsible for relocating rescue units to cover
to R-40 (Hilliard), 50 (Callahan) and 60 (Bryceville)
when they are out of position.
It is a position and career that I relish.
Under normal circumstances the fire chief and
his deputy chief are salaried. One deputy chief is
currently still paid by the hour and receiving out of
position pay. That position is to be voted on by the
board in the future. Whenever he comes out to
cover a position (in an emergency) he is paid over-
time. Those are career paths that they chose to pur-
sue.
My paychecks to date have not shown me that I
have earned $104,000. I realize that the article is
quoting from the fiscal year Oct. 1, 2004, to Sept. 2,
2005, that is the misleading part of the story. The
title "firefighter" is also misleading, in that I am a
captain with 20 years of dedicated service. Like
every other worker in this nation, my pay starts at
$00.00 in January.
Nassau County has gotten to a point that we are
no longer a training ground for Jacksonville or other'
departments. Our field employees are the best in
the business. They trust me and I trust them.

City, county approve budgets for 2005-6


County tax rates to decline


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Ifs official.
Nassau County residents will pay
lower ad valorem tax rates this year.
The Nassau County Commission
approved its 2005-6 millage rate and
budget Monday, days prior to the begin-
ning of the new fiscal year Oct. 1.
The total countywide millage rate was
set for 6.43 mills, which is 1.25 mills
lower than last year and falls just below
the rollback rate. The rollback is the rate
the county could assess and still receive
the same amount of taxable revenue as
the previous year.
Residents in unincorporated areas of
the county will see a smaller decrease in
their rate. That millage rate dropped from
8.5 mills to 8.25 mills, and is about 10
percent above the rollback rate.
It amounts to a savings of about $50
a year on a house with a taxable value of


$200,000 after the homestead exemption.
The same homeowner in an incorpo-
rated area of the county Fernandina
Beach, Callahan or Hilliard will see
greater savings. The decrease in their
mill rate would amount to a savings of
about $250 a year. However, residents in
incorporated areas pay an additional mill-
age levied by their respective munici-
palities.
Residents in unincorporated areas
pay higher county taxes because they're
taxed for additional county services such
as county fire, emergency management,
animal control and growth management
The taxing fund that pays for these
services, the municipal service fund, will
increase by 1 mill this year. The county's
total budget was approved at
$124,213,128.
A public hearing was held prior to
the budget's approval. However, no one
from the public participated.

City commissioners split 3-2


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioners adopt-
ed the city's fiscal year 2005-6 budget on Sept.
20.
The measure passed with a 3-2 vote with
Mayor Ken Walker, Vice Mayor Beano
Roberts and Commissioner John Crow voting
to approve it Commissioners Joe Gerrity and
Bill Leeper voted against it.
Gerrity, who made clear his intention to
vote against the budget, reiterated his dis-
approval of the overall financial management
strategy contained within the document. The
budget enlarges the city's bureaucracy, he
told the commission previously, adding that
it lacked "a common sense approach."
Gerrity also stated his opposition to hiring.
new city employees. The budget includes
five additional positions in the enterprise
funds, including two in water, two in waste-
water and one in the central garage.
Gerrity also opposed continuing with the
police department's current vehicle rotation
policy. Police cars with a minimum of 40,000
miles will be replaced with eight new vehicles
valued at approximately $330,027. "Most peo-
ple drive their cars until the maintenance
costs become excessive, (but) not the city,"
Gerrity said.

Although the rotation program is needed,
Leeper voted against the budget because
staff "didn't pull it out separately," he said.
"The vehicle rotation system has some
good points," Leeper said. "(But) I believe it
needs further study to make sure we're doing
what's best."
During the budget review process, Leeper
also took exception to more than $70,000 in
grant funding for nonprofit groups that he
said potentially diverted money away from
city services.
The commission voted 4-1 to set the ad val-
orem tax rate at 4.8672 mills or $4.87 for
every $1,000 of taxable property value.
Gerrity voted against that measure also. But
commissioners voted unanimously to approve
the 0.3153 millage rate for voter approved
debt service.
Commissioners did not act on a citizen
request to amend the budget to include a
master design plan for city-owned uplands
at the Amelia River waterfront. But impact
fees could be used to develop plans specifi-
cally for a park on the property, City Manager
Bob Mearns said.
The adopted budget provides nearly $15
million in capital improvements for equip-
ment replacement, building maintenance and
expansion and infrastructurere restoration.

areas so permanent repairs can be
made, Leeper said.
City Building Official John
Santoloci ordered an inspection
after Vickers notified him of the
problem Aug. 1, according to e-
mails obtained by the News-Leader
through a public records request
Engineers with Synergy
Structural Engineering inspecting
the site Aug. 29 found that prob-
lems with the truss system
required immediate attention.
George J. Leverett, the engi-
neering firm's president, wrote
'Santoloci via e-mail on the day of
the inspection. "Based on our site
observation today at the
Fernandina Beach Golf Clubhouse
we noted that numerous truss plate
connections for the trusses over
dining room 113 were failing," he
said. "Gaps as large as 1 1/2 inch
are present. This condition is caus-
ing additional stress on other truss
plate connections and needs to be
shored immediately in order to sta-
bilize the roof structure."
'The damage caused to the inte-
rior ceiling in the main dining room
is due to the roof trusses failing at
the west end of the clubhouse,"
Leverett said in a final inspection
report dated Sept. 2. "The trusses
appear to be failing due to inade-
quate or damaged connector plates
throughout this area."
Leverett also noted significant
damage at the dining hall's north
end, "however, the south end has
acute failures and is starting to
show visible cracks..."
Santoloci had alerted Mearns to
"this ongoing problem with the
clubhouse out on the golf course"
in an e-mail on Aug. 23. "It seems
the structural problems in the ceil-
ing/roof construction are getting
worse," he wrote the city manager.
"I felt that we needed to con-
sult a structural engineer as soon
as possible in order to have the
problem assessed and to prepare a
repair schedule and a temporary
shoring plan so that we could con-
tinue to use the space for sched-
uled events," Santoloci wrote
Mearns on Aug. 31.
Vickers and Santoloci traded e-
mails during the first week of
September about the problem. "I
don't know how you feel about it,
but it may be a good idea to have
the area closed off once we get
this work started," Santoloci wrote
Sept. 6.
Vickers first noticed the defects
"approximately a year and a half
ago," Santoloci wrote City Attorney
Debra Braga in another e-mail that
same day regarding construction
liability for the problems.
There was no explanation for
the delay in notifying the fire mar-,
sh 1 "If I had received the report
on the second or the third (of
September), we would have done
something then," Bunch said.
"Knowing that it's a dangerous
room to be in, I can't allow (its use)
to continue in clear conscience."
Santoloci could not be reached
for comment.

LANDFILL Continued from 1A
Commission. But Monday
Mahaney recommended a $20 raise
that gained the unanimous support
of the commission, and several
members of the audience, during a
public hearing.
"I'm encouraged you only want
to raise this fee $20," Skip Martin
said. "But I'm discouraged you
don't kill Clay County's trash right
now. Eventually we'll get killed for
selling stuff for half as much as it's
costing us."
The county charges Clay $23 a
ton, which falls well short of cov-
ering costs. It's also far less than the
county charges its in-county cus-
tomers, which many said is unfair.
Jane Scanlan of the Nassau
County Solid Waste. Task Force
said her organization opposed the
two previous attempts to raise the
residential assessment. However, it
would support raising the fee $20
this year, with three conditions.
She asked that the county
pledge to no longer charge out-of-
county customers less than in-coun-
ty customers. She also asked that
the county establish a special
assessment for commercial busi-
nesses in the county and work with
the task force to increase recycling
efforts.
The commission unanimously
adopted those conditions as amend-
ments to its resolution.
Each commissioner also reas-
sured the audience that Clay
County's contract will not be
renewed.
"I met with Clay County and


they will not renew this contract,"
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham said. "And I assure
you, we have the same intention."
Mahaney said if the county ter-
minated its contract with Clay
County immediately, it would leave
a significant shortfall that would
require a much higher residential
assessment, possibly $180.
As it is, raising the fee to $65 will
still leave the county short of cov-
ering expenses by about $1.5 mil-
lion.
A budget transfer will cover that
this year, but the county will need
to find a permanent way to cover
that shortfall by next September,
Mahaney said.

Hourly school workers



canft coach for pay


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Nassau County public school
employees who are paid an hourly
wage have been temporarily
banned from coaching for school
sports teams unless they agree to
do so on a voluntary basis.
Schools Superintendent John
Ruis told Nassau County School
Board members at Thursday's
meeting he expects a solution to
the issue within the next few
weeks.
According to Ruis, the school
board will not approve coaching
by any hourly personnel which is
all non-instructional staff- because
by law they would have to be paid
overtime, or time and a half, for
any work that exceeds 40 hours
in one week.
Previously, non-salaried
employees who chose to coach
sports teams and participate in
other extracurricular activities
were paid the same supplemental
amount as teachers on salary. But
a memo issued to Florida school
districts from the Chief of Labor
Relations for the Leon County
School District in May said only
salaried workers are exempt from
receiving overtime pay for coach-
ing work, and that non-salaried
employees must be paid overtime
or coach on a voluntary basis.
Ruis called the situation a
change in the "interpretation of
the (Fair Labor Standards Act)."
At Thursday's meeting, board
members read a letter from
Hilliard Middle-Senior High School
Athletic Director Natasha Drake,


'Ifasked, anyone will
tell you that some four
most ethical, caring
coaches are our non-
instructional personnel. '
NATASHA DRAKE, HILLIARD
MIDDLE-SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
ATHLETIC DIRECTOR


who said requiring non-salaried
personnel to volunteer coach has
caused problems at the school,
which has the highest number of
athletic teams and coaching posi-
tions in the county.
Non-salaried employees pro-
vide all coaching for the HMSHS
middle school girls' sports pro-
grams, and Drake said the coach-
es were under the impression that
the usual supplements would be
paid.
'These coaches have not seen
any money in their paychecks and
have been putting in numerous
hours after school," Drake said,
calling the situation "unfair."
In a phone interview Monday,
Ruis admitted the new policy was
not communicated to school
employees properly in all cases.
"It was not really clarified or
specified," he said.
Ruis said one possible solution
approved by school board attor-
neys would be to establish a wage
for the coaching positions different
from the employees' hourly wages
but comparable to the supplements


paid to teachers who coach. The
supplements range from $3,778
annually for a varsity head football
coach to $500 for a bowling coach.
When a final decision is made, Ruis
said non-salaried employees cur-
rently coaching on a voluntary
basis will be paid retroactively.
Ruis said paying the employ-
ees time and a half of their cur-
rent hourly wage is not feasible.
"(The amount paid) would be
something that is an unknown,"
he said. "You just put countless
hours (into coaching) ... it could be
up to 15 hours a week, at time and
a half, that's a little excessive."
Non-salaried personnel such as
paraprofessionals, data entry oper-
ators, instructional aides and cus-
todians have coached teams in the
past for the same supplements paid
to teachers.
"If asked, anyone will tell you
that some of our most ethical, car-
ing coaches are our non-instruc-
tional personnel," Drake said.
'They maintain excellent records,
keep up with the necessary stu-
dent paperwork, demand and
expect the best from their athletes
and have developed championship
programs."
Ruis told board members he
expected to have the issue
resolved by the next board meet-
ing on Oct. 13.
"It's not like there isn't a solu-
tion," he said. "We have a potential
solution and we are working on it
... we're certainly not ignoring it
and certainly not trying to mini-
mize the significance of the situa-
tion."

Mail carrier goes


above and beyond'
HEATHER PERRY
News-Leader


In 1860, the Pony Express
motto said, "Neither snow, nor
rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night
stays these couriers from the swift
completion of their appointed
rounds." Emma (Jean) Cooper
exemplifies these words in her
position as mail carrier with the
U.S. Postal Service in Fernandina
Beach.
Postmaster Ron Steedley
described Cooper as "the 'above
and beyond' carrier with how she
truly amazes her customers that
she serves on her route."
Additional praise for Cooper
came from her supervisor, Vic
Blackwell, who said, "Jean is my
'Rock of Gibraltar' during times of
crisis. When carriers fail to come
to work, she coordinates among
a select few how to get the vacant
route or routes delivered. More
often than not, she takes on the
extra burden herself!
"Jean has unselfishly cancelled
her own pre-approved annual
leave and, on occasion, doctor's
appointments to come to work so
her fellow carriers would not have
to pivot a vacant route."
Cooper described the best part
of working at USPS as "great co-
workers and meeting so many
nice people on my different routes
over the years." The worst, of
course, is "the intense heat during
the summer months."
To keep carriers hydrated dur-
ing hot weather, the USPS pro-
vides electrolyte-enhanced bev-
erages and potassium in the form
of bananas and plums. Carriers
also have added relief time to cool
down between "park and loops."
Cooper shares her Fernandina

Letter Carrier Food Drive


On Oct. 7, letter carriers in
Fernandina Beach will deliver
more than mail when they walk
and drive along their postal
routes. They will also collect the
goodness and compassion of
their postal customers partici-
pating in a special food drive for
the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
' Th- F,--rnridina Beach Post
Office, in conjunction with the
city of Fernandina Beach, will
conduct this special food drive.
All food collected on this date
will be delivered to areas in des-


operate need in the Gulf Coast
area.
Customers are asked to place
a sack of non-perishable food
next to their mailbox before the
letter carrier delivers mail on Oct.
7. The food will be taken back to
the Fernandina Post Office
where trucks will be ready to be
loaded-and carried to the"'Gulf
Coast. The annual Letter Carrier
Food Drive has resulted in dona-
tions of more than 22,000 pounds
of food for two years in a row for
local needs.

Community reaches out



to victims of Katrina


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader

John Allen knows what it feels
like to lose a home.
His mother died when he was
14 and his home was never the
same.
"My home didn't feel like home
because my heart wanted to be
with her so much," he said. "I
thought my life ended when she
died."
Allen said the experience of los-
ing his mother helps him under-
stand the grief that many survivors
of Hurricane Katrina feel after
being separated from loved ones.'
"Home is a family," he said. "Ifs
not so much a house. It's the fam-
ily being together."
Allen's older sister Rosalyn
helped him live through that diffi-
cult time. Now he wants to help
the survivors of Hurricane Katrina
make it through their difficulties.
Allen, along with other con-
cerned members of the communi-
ty, organized Operation Nassau
Cares. With ,help from the
Southside Neighborhood
Association, the group will send
supplies to the areas hit by the
storm.
"We just felt in our hearts that
we needed to do something," said
Allen, who serves as an associate
pastor at the Chester Church of
God. "As a community we can do
more together than separately."
The group urges local church-
es, businesses and individuals to
bring donated items to the Martin
Luther King Jr. Recreation Center
on Elm Street Friday and Saturday,
Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. Mission
Harvest America will transport the
supplies to distribution centers in
the devastated Gulf Coast region.
The project will also help sur-
vivors who have moved into our
community as well as those who
remain in Louisiana and
Mississippi, Allen said.
"We realize that some people
have relocated to this area and we
want to help them, too," he said,
explaining that families affected
by the storm who are now living in
Nassau County may come to
receive items they need.
Allen remembers evacuating to
Peck High School before
Hurricane Dora came ashore here
n 1964. Less destructive than

John Allen hopes Operation Nassau Cares will unite local
churches, businesses and individuals in a grassroots effort to
help families who survived Hurricane Katrina.


Operation Nassau Cares


Operation Nassau Cares, with help from the Southside
Neighborhood Association, will accept donations for the survivors
of Hunicane Katrina at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation
Center in Femandina Beach from 4-8 p.m. Friday, Sept 30, and
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1.
Mission Harvest America will transport the items including tow-
els, washcloths, bed linen, diapers, hygiene products, toiletries,
hand sanitizer, nonperishable foods like cereal and small bottles of
drinking water. Please, no clothing or cash donations.

don't have to go through it. But
we can be touched by it."
Allen believes that good will
come from Hurricane Katrina and
he hopes America will continue to
unite across racial lines to touch
those in need. "I really pray this will
cause us to look at our own city, our
own state, our ov.-n governmentt"
he'said. "Sometimes we miss the,
person next door. We are all vul-
nerable,"


Solitude gave him clarity


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader

After five years in retreat, local
business owner and spiritual
teacher Maxcell Wilson is back.
Many in the community had
speculated about why he left his
business behind.
But Wilson had good reasons
for turning his barbershop over to
his son Chris Wilson and remaining
inside his home on American
Beach.
"I locked myself down for five
years," he said. "I stayed there (at
home) intentionally."
The solitude gave him more
clarity, he said explaining that he
made a strong spiritual connection
with his ancestors. Silence allowed
him to listen intently to God's voice.
S"When you get by yourself,
you'd be surprised what you hear,"
Wilson said.
Born in Fernandina Beach into
a family of 15 children, Wilson's
life changed forever when he asked
for a pair of hair clippers one
Christmas. The gift allowed him to
earn income to help the family and
set him on the path toward entre-
preneurship.
Wilson has owned the Island
Barbershop at the corner of
Hickory and South Ninth streets

and South Ninth streets after five years spent in solitude inside
his American Beach home.


for more than 30 years.
Since ending his retreat, Wilson
can frequently be seen around his
barbershop and around town.
And he has returned to the com-
munity with a wealth of wisdom to


share.,
"Go as though you're in a race
toward all that is good," he said.
"So when you lose, you won't be
able to blame anyone but yourself."
gjenkins@jbnewsleader com


The media's faces of Katrina,
including the many African-
Americans of New Orleans who
came to symbolize poverty, should
serve as an important stimulus for
everyone, Allen said.
"Jesus said we shall always have
the poor with.us," he said. "That
means we will always have some-
one in need that we can reach out
to."

Sheriff employs



new legal adviser


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A former prosecutor with the
Nassau County State Attorney's
Office has accepted a position as
the new legal adviser for the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office.
Marlyne S. Clark started work
at the sheriff's office on Friday,
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said. Clark worked
with the State Attorney's Office
for two years.
Clark will replace Gabrielle
Taylor, the former sheriff's legal
adviser who was arrested July 28
for disorderly intoxication and
resisting arrest without violence
in Atlantic Beach. She was fired
from the sheriffs office later that
same day.
Taylor had driven her police-
issued vehicle to the Jacksonville
bar where she was arrested,
which Seagraves said was against
department policy.
Seagraves said Clark came
highly recommended by several
judges and her colleagues at the
State Attorney's Office.
"We're real happy to have her,"
Seagraves said. "Her references
all spoke very highly of her ... I
think this will work out real well."


Seagraves
said Clark has
"never had so
much as a
speeding tick-
et."
Clark, who
lives in
Jacksonville,
Clark has been issued
a county vehicle
to drive for work business, but
Seagraves said she will not have
take-home privileges for the vehi-
cle unless she moves to Nassau
County.
Clark, 28, attended college and
law school at the University of
Florida, where she graduated
with honors.
"I've always been interested
in law enforcement, even as a
young child," Clark said. "I knew
that I wanted to go to law school,
and I knew that I wanted to take
it in the direction of law enforce-
ment"
Clark's salary will be $52,000
a year, Seagraves said.
"I'm very excited to be repre-
senting the sheriffs office," Clark
said. "I consider it an honor and
a privilege to be working for such
an outstanding organization."

52 new vehicles for sheriff


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves plans to update the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office fleet
with 52 new vehicles and a new
paint job.
The total cost for the vehicles
and the paint is $777,000, Seagraves
said. He said new vehicles for the
sheriffs office are purchased every
three years. For Seagraves, who
took office in January, this is the
first time ordering the vehicles and
he's making some changes.
"I'm thinking about the present
and the future, I'm not thinking
about the past," said Seagraves.
The new vehicles will be ordered
white and painted by local body
shops dark green and white, col-
ors Seagraves says are required
for sheriff's office vehicles
statewide. Previously, the vehicles
were green and white, but mostly
white. Now, the cars will be dark
green on the front and the back
ends.
He says the new paint jobs will
make the patrol vehicles safer for
deputies.
"There's a lot of benefits to that,"
he said. "It makes it easier for
deputies to hide behind, if they
need to... and the cars are less vis-
ible when responding to night
calls."
The sheriff's fleet consists of


-* .-' r ft fT, ." '
SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
Nassau County Sheriff's patrol cars are sporting new colors -
dark green and white-- that Sheriff Tommy Seagraves says are
safer for officers and comply with state standards.


110 vehicles.
This year, one new jail van will
be purchased along with four 4-
wheel-drive special duty Chevrolet
Tahoes for driving on the beach,
and 37 patrol vehicles: 31 Chevrolet
Impalas and six Dodge Chargers.
The patrol vehicles will be ordered
as "police package" vehicles with
stronger batteries and suspension
systems to stand up to wear and
tear of police work.
Ten additional Chevy Impalas
will be ordered without the police
package for administrators who
drive the vehicles but don't usual-
ly work road patrols and for NCSO
employees to use for civil process
duty. The cost of a police package
Chevy Impala is $21,072, including


the paint job.
'"We do everything in our power
to research around and get the best
rates," Seagraves said. 'We try to
stay local, if we can do that and get
the best price ... but the top priori-
ty is to spend the taxpayers' money
wisely."
The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office vehicle order will be placed
with another nearby law enforce-
ment agency that is purchasing
many more vehicles, so that there
will be more of a discount for buy-
ing in bulk.
Seagraves said he's switching
to Chevrolet Impalas because Ford
Crown Victorias have cost and safe-
ty problems, including gas tanks
exploding upon impact. The Impala


also gets better gas mileage -
more than 20 miles per gallon com-
pared to 10 to 12 miles per gallon
for the Victorias and costs about
$3,000 less per car, Seagraves said.
The sheriff's office vehicle
replacement policy does not have
strict mileage rules, and Seagraves
estimated most vehicles have
100,000 miles to 150,000 miles
when they are retired.
"We couldn't have a strict
mileage limit," he said. "If we did,
we'd be replacing some cars after
two years."
When the new vehicles arrive,
older vehicles with high mileage
will be sold at auction, with the pro-
ceeds going to the sheriff's office,
or kept as back-up vehicles.
The 2006 Dodge Chargers are a
new police package vehicle on the
market that Seagraves said he's
"trying out"
"They're supposed to be very
good and strong, but I'm only going
to get a few," he said. "I don't want
to buy a whole fleet and then find
out I'm stuck with a bunch of
lemons."
Seagraves said he expects to
have the new vehicles by the end of
the year, and old ones are already
being repainted.
"My priority is to choose vehi-
cles that will serve the public inter-
est, be safe for the deputies ... and
save money," Seagraves said.

Ex-teacher

remains on


probation

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A former Nassau County sub-
stitute teacher convicted of lewd
and lascivious acts was denied
early termination of his proba-
tion Sept. 15 after the victim's
mother made an emotional plea
in court
'To this day (my daughter)
regrets that she was seduced by
this person," the victim's moth-
er told Nassau County Circuit
Court Judge Robert Foster." ...
Please give us the satisfaction
of having him fully pay his due."
James Andrew Quinn, 26,
was arrested Nov. 22, 2002, after
he was accused of having two
15-year-old girls and one 14-year-
old girl over to his Callahan
home, where they reportedly
played strip poker and drank
alcohol. Quinn then had sex with
the two 15-year-old girls, accord-
ing to court documents.
Quinn pleaded guilty to one
count of lewd or lascivious bat-
tery on a person under the age
of 16 on May 15, 2003, and was
sentenced to three years of pro-
bation.
On Sept. 15, Quinn was in
court asking for early termina-
tion of his probation. According
to his lawyer, Anthony Berry,
Quinn has completed all the
requirements of his probation.
Quinn hopes to attend the.
University of North Florida, but
was told by admissions person-
nel that he could not be admitted
to the school while still on pro-
bation.
"Thisis a 23-year-old who has
become a 26-year-old who has
pretty significantly turned his
life around," Berry said.
Quinn was employed by the
Nassau County School District
as a substitute teacher from Sept
13, 2002, until Nov. 4, 2002.
Nassau County Schools
Superintendent John Ruis said
Quinn did not work in the
schools after his arrest
On Aug. 11, 2003, Quinn was
fired by the Nassau County
School Board at Ruis's recom-
mendation.
Ruis said Quinn worked at
West Nassau High School,
Hilliard Middle-Senior High
School, and Callahan Middle

Foster commended Quinn for
furthering his education, but he
ruled that Quinn must complete
the remaining eight months of
his probation.
"That's the deal you accept-
ed," Foster said, referring to the
plea agreement that gave him
three years of probation, "and
I'm afraid that's the deal you're
stuck with."

News-Leader

A fiery crash at the intersec-
tion of A1A and Nassau Place in
Yulee left one woman injured
Tuesday.
And a Yulee woman was
injured Friday night in an acci-
dent involving a log truck and a
minivan at the intersection of A1A
and Chester Road.
A white sedan was entering
A1A about 1;30 p.m. Tuesday
when it was struck by a gold
Lexus traveling in the eastbound
lane, Nassau County Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper said.
When fire and rescue para-
medics arrived on the scene, the
white sedan was in flames and the
driver had to be extricated.
The victim suffered no burns,
Cooper said, but was initially unre-
sponsive. She was transported via
ambulance to Shands Jacksonville
trauma center. Her identity was
not available, but the Nassau
County Sheriffs department said
her injuries did not appear to be
life-threatening.
The driver of the Lexus
appeared to be unhurt, Cooper
said.
Tammy Lynn Gerber, 39, was
taken .to Baptist Medical Center


Nassau after the Friday accident,
which happened about 10:30 p.m.
at AlA and Chester Road.
Gerber told police she was
crossing A1A at Chester Road to
go to Winn-Dixie when her van, a
2004 Ford Freestar, was struck
by a log truck. The truck driver,
Tony C. Smith, 23, of Georgia was
not injured in the accident, accord-
ing to a Florida Highway Patrol
report.
Gerber was released from the
hospital about 1 a.m. Saturday.
Nassau County Fire-Rescue
Deputy Chief Tracy Braley said
the accident caused the truck's
logs to spill onto the highway,
causing a "traffic hazard."


Local bar association seeks to grow


I-mw-


SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
Bill White, Public Defender for the judicial circuit that includes
Nassau County, spoke at the August meeting of the Nassau
County Bar Association.


HISTORIC DAMAGE


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

The Nassau County Bar
Association has ambitions.
"We're very small," admits
Teresa J. Sopp, president of the
association and local defense attor-
ney. "We're one of the smallest bar
associations in the state."
Sopp would like to see that
change one of her goals as bar
association president is to increase
the membership and the commu-
nity presence of the Nassau County
Bar Association.
The association is open to any
attorney practicing in Nassau
County. Right now, it has more
than 30 members, up significantly
from six members a few years
ago.
"We've come a long way," Sopp
said. "We have a lot more lawyers
now than we used to."
The association meets on the
third Tuesday of each month at
noon in the courtroom of the
Nassau County Courthouse in
downtown Fernandina Beach, fol-
lowed by lunch at Bonito's.
"We're really a professional net-
working group that hopes to edu-
cate the public about the judicial
system," Sopp said.
Public Defender Bill White was


the guest speaker
at the August
meeting, and he
talked to about
two dozen assem-
bled guests about
funding of the
Office of the
Sopp Public Defender,
and the workload
of public defend-
ers in the judicial circuit that
includes Clay, Duval and Nassau
counties.
White said in 1974, the public
defender's office had 18 lawyers
and handled 6,200 cases. Now, with
75 lawyers, the number of cases
per year has increased to about
48,000.
'The case load of the average
lawyer has doubled," he said.
At the Oct. 18 meeting, Nassau
County Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster is scheduled to speak, Sopp
said.
Ross Germano, a local attorney
and a member since 2002, said he
joined the bar association when he
moved to the area.
"I wanted to find out about local
bar activities," he said. "When I first
moved here, I didn't know anyone
... I thought itd be a great way to
meet people."
Germano said he's enjoyed his


past three years of membership,
and he's expecting the bar to flour-
ish under Sopp's.leadership.
"I think it's going to be a real
active bar under (Sopp's) leader-
ship," he said." ... I enjoy the cama-
raderie, and some of the topics ...
and speakers are absolutely fasci-
nating."
The bar association is about
more than just talking shop. Each
year, it awards a $1,000 college
scholarship to a participant in Teen
Court,- and Sopp is hoping to get
other community service activities
going as well.
"A lawyer referral service, pro
bono projects (and) other public
service projects," is what Sopp sees
in the group's future.
Following the August meeting,
White joined members of the group
for lunch, and the topics of conver-
sation ranged from legal issues to
book recommendations, with White
enthusiastically endorsing The
Sunday Philosophy Club by
Alexander McCall Smith.
Sopp said the association is
intended to be fun, as well as edu-
cational.
"We're small, but we have a
great group of members," she said.
"Now, I'm just hoping to expand
that membership."

Late summer on Talbot trail


- with bugs and rain


Fall is here and I've been
looking forward to revisit-
ing my favorite haunt -
the hiking trail in Little
Talbot State Park. During the
long hot summer this trail is off
limits, at least to me. With low-
lying wet areas and dense vegeta-
tion, the summer inhabitants of
the trail, the mosquitoes and bit-
ing flies of various hues can call it
their own. I have no desire to
sweatily wade through their
annoying midst and instead pre-
fer to spend my summer days at
the beach. Summer is for bask-
ing, not exercise.
After months of avoiding the
Talbot hiking trail, during a
recent nor'easter I made a spur-
of-the-moment decision to give it
a try. OK, sure, it was still techni-
cally summer, early September,
and still mostly hot, hot, hot But
when Ophelia was offshore and
the wind was blowing with gusts
more than 40 mph maybe it was
cool enough at last?
I wasn't prepared for this
impromptu hike, I uLIst :n.1i I
was wearing flip-flops more

miles or so. I did have a water
bottle, my digital camera and

vival necessities in these parts,
but no bug repellent, another
item top on my list. But, I rea-

WILDWAYS ?:lking '
human visitor
in awhile. There were fairly
recent tracks of a Gator, a small
off-road vehicle used by park
rangers to patrol the area, but
these vehicles and their drivers
pass less than four foot high
along the trail. Above this height,
webs of large golden silk orb-
weaver spiders (aka banana spi-
ders) blocked the trail at a numn-
ber of locations, with their
inci- ng inihabitants- with legs
extended e.-nmiinghv nearly three
times this size at my eye level.
Spiders and spider-webs in my
face freak me out, I must admit,
so I picked up a fallen tree branch
and used it to clear the path
ahead of me as I walked.
Like on all my hikes on this
same trail, something new and
unexpected was evident. This
time it was mushrooms red

ones, yellow ones, white ones,
brown ones, mushrooms every-
where on tree trunks, on pine-
straw-laden ground, on fallen
twigs. Never have I seen such a
diversity of mushrooms along a
single trail anywhere where I've
traveled. The wet and humid ,
summer days had reaped their
reward, and it was mushrooms.
Venturing a mile or two down
the path to the ocean, I was all
the way to the windy sand dune
area when it started to rain. With
no shelter or rain jacket, there
was not much choice I was
going to get wet I carefully
wrapped my camera and other
valuables in the plastic bags that I
always carry and continued walk-
ing towards the beach in the driv-


ing rain. By the time I got to the
coast-side bench, I was drenched
but happier than I've been in
months, enjoying myself alone
with nature on a stormy day in a
beautiful and familiar spot
I could not leave the hiking
trail path without a revisit to my
favorite place on Earth, my secret
hill, where I could survey the
ocean and the woods, hidden to
everyone except the occasional
over-flying helicopter from near-
by Mayport. Even though it had
been months since I'd last been
there, I easily navigated the
thorny smilax vines, past the resi-
dent gopher tortoise burrow, still
an active one I was happy to note,
and took my place on the sandy
cedar- and holly-surrounded hill-


top.
The bobcat signs were still
there, as well as the resident soli-
tary bee that circled harmlessly
around me, large but innocuous
once you got to know it, like I did.
The rain had stopped by now, but
the wind was still blowing hard,
the tops of the palm trees near
me were bent over and the waves
in the distance were mostly
whitecaps and closer to land than
I've ever seen them. A few min-
utes here and my energy was
replenished and I felt at peace, as
I always was, at this, my special
place.
Recharged, I was ready to
hike back to my car. On the
return to the parking lot I had to
retrace my steps on the walk
through the woods the tide was
too high and rough during the
storm to walk down the beach,
which usually completes a loop to
this trail. Unfortunately for me,
following the rainstorm, two
hours after my first passage down
this trail the summer mosquitoes
and biting yellow flies had
returned to their haunt in the
woods. It was all I could do to
stop still for the moment or two it
took to photograph the colorful
mushrooms while I was constant-
ly under attack by the trail's aerial
pests.


How quickly emotions can
change in the wilderness! Now
instead of feeling happiness and
peace, I was slapping my arms
and twitching my legs like a
horse to repel the biting flies, in
ever-escalating anxiety as I
rushed down the trail to end my
torment. I should have carried
my insect repellent, as I usually
do on a hike. But more than this,
I regretted my careless, spider-
wiping passage along the trail. If
only I had left the spider webs
there and instead ducked under
and around them, maybe I could
have lured my tormenting yellow
flies to their capture and demise,
with the help of the golden orb
spiders. These spiders are the
keeper of the gate, and I should
have heeded their warning. As
long as there are bugs to capture,
there they are.
It looked to me that summer
was not over yet. Until the biting
flies leave me alone, the trail is
still for the bugs and the golden
orb spiders, but not for me. But
stay tuned, fall is coming, thank
Mother Nature!

Louisville
-" he University of
Florida football team
proved in a 49-28
whitewashing of
Kentucky. in Lexington
Saturday that its offense is
capable of putting up huge
numbers. The Gators scored
five touchdowns in the sec-
ond quarter alone to put away
the Wildcats before halftime
and allow for their backup
players to gain some vital
game experience.
Of course, the naysayers
will point out that there is a
considerable drop-off from
Florida's starters to their
reserves and that depth
might be an issue after
Kentucky clawed back into
the game. But, as former
Florida coach Steve Spurrier
used to say, "Depth? What
position does he play?"...
So much for the "Big
Three" of college football in
the state of Florida. The
University of South Florida
hammered ninth-ranked
Louisville 45-14 Saturday
night, taking a major step
toward gaining respect in
Division I in just its ninth year
of existence. Just goes to
once again prove that Florida
really is a breeding bed of
football talent...
The Georgia Bulldogs put
it on cruise control in a ho-
hum 23-10 win against
Mississippi State, undoubted-
ly making the mouths of
Gator fans water in anticipa-
tion of the annual showdown
with the Dawgs in Jackson-
ville next month. But here's a
little food for thought for the
Florida fans who might be a
little over-confident after
watching the Bulldogs strug-
gle against a weakling:
Georgia did come out of
Starkville with a victory,
which is more than the 2004
Gators could claim. I get a'
feeling that the Dawgs will
continue to play to the level of
their competition until QB
D.J. Shockley comes into his
own. Gator fans can only
hope that happens after Oct.
29...
There's a rumor floating
around that Illinois head foot-
ball coach Ron Zook wanted
his team to lose to Michigan
State, which it did in blowout
fashion, 61-14. Yeah, someone
said they heard Zook say
after the game that his play-
ers were doing "everything
we ask them to do"...
It's just a matter of time
before the Atlanta Braves
clinch an unprecedented 14th
straight division champi-
onship. On a sad note, it's
also just a matter of time
before they blow another
playoff series...
My apologies in advance
for this non-sports related
topic.
I detest acronyms. Can't
stand 'em. ADA, AQMD,
AARP, blah, blah, blah.
But there's one in particu-
lar I run across on Internet
message boards really sticks
in my craw: "ROFL" or
"Rolling on the Floor
Laughing."
No, "LOL" or "Laughing
Out Loud" just wasn't good
enough for those who
become overly amused while
sitting behind their key-
boards. They had to let their
cyber friends know that they
weren't just tickled, but tick-
led pink, by their hilarity.
Neal: "Hey Bob, what's the
difference between chopped
beef and pea soup?"
Bob: "I don't know, Neal,
but I'm already LOL in antici-
pation!"
Neal: "Everyone can chop
beef, but not everyone can
pea soup!"


Bob: "ROFL, ROFL,
ROFL!!!"
I'd like to come across
Bob one day and expose him
for the fibber that he really
is...

Moving the ball wasn't a prob-
lem for the Pirates Friday night.
Scoring was.
"We had over 300 yards on
offense but only 12 points to show
for it," Fernandina Beach High
School Coach Ed "Puggy" Brown
said. "We just have to find a way to
put the ball in the end zone."
The Pirates' homecoming was
spoiled by the Fleming Island
Golden Eagles 20-12, avenging last
year's homecoming loss to the
Pirates, who dropped to 1-3 on the
season.
The Eagles scored on their first
possession Friday to take a 7-0 lead.
The Pirates answered when James
Southers punched it in from three
yards out with 1:57 left in the first


quarter. The PAT failed and the
Pirates trailed 7-6.
In the second quarter, Fleming
struck again with 7:54 left in the
half to forge ahead 14-6, and
threatened to score again as the
Eagles were poised on the Pirate
seven-yard line on first-and-goal
with more than four minutes left.
But penalties and a quarterback
sack by Pirate Jamael Autry
pushed Fleming back and the team
was forced to punt.
The Pirates attempted a 40-yard
field goal as the clock expired
before halftime, but the kick failed.
Fleming was up 14-6 at the half.
After a scoreless third quarter,
Fleming found the end zone again
with 9:55 left in the game. The PAT
was blocked, but the Eagles were

Flashes blank


Branford 42-0

JOHN L. CRAWFORD
For the News-Leader
The Hilliard varsity football team had its back to the
wall but came out swinging Friday night, belting the
visiting Branford Buccaneers 42-0 and capturing the
team's first district win of the season.
Hilliard offensive coordinator Paul Whittenburg
said the Flashes had their sights set on the Branford
game as a statement game after a rocky 2-3 start to the
2005 season.
That goal was more than accomplished, as Hilliard
held the Buccaneers to 177 yards rushing and no
passing yards, while racking up 391 total yards of
offense in the rout.
"In my opinion, we've been the better team in just
about every game we've played this season; we just
made too many costly mistakes," Wli-ilt-nburg said.
"But we're determined to get on a roll and not lose
another football game. This was a breakout game."
The Flashes wasted no time taking control from
Branford, chewing more than half of the first quarter
on a drive that culminated with a 12-yard option keep-
er for a touchdown by senior QB Daniel "Big Boy"
Thomas.
The Flashes continued to pile on the Buccaneers
with a 7-yard touchdown run around the right end by
sophomore RB Ralph Bolden. That play was set up by
a fumble recovery from senior DT Damien Wade on
the Branford 35-yard line.
Thomas scampered 69 yards to the endzone with
6:15 to go in the second quarter and hooked up with
junior WRAndrae Walker on a 33-yard scoring strike
with just eight seconds remaining inr the half for a 28-
0 Hilliard lead.
Senior LB Roderick Alderman set the tone for the
defense on Branford's first drive of the second half,
stuffing a second-down run and sacking the quarter-
back on third down before the Buccaneers muffed the
punt, giving the Flashes possession in Branford ter-
ritory. Bolden burst through the right side for a 43-yard
touchdown on the very next play, giving Hilliard the
35-0 lead and forcing officials to go to a running clock.
Bolden found pay dirt one last time in the fourth
quarter on a 6-yard counter play, wrapping up the 42-
0 rout.
Thomas led the Flashes in rushing with 114 yards
and completed 5-of-5 passes for 126 yards and the
touchdown to Walker, who racked up 114 yards receiv-
ing on three catches.
Bolden carried eight times for 91 yards, while sen-
ior RB Dennis Alderman ran for 48 yards on six car-
ries.
Sophomore K Kevin Webb hit all six of his extra
point field goal attempts.
Senior DE Rustyn Reed led Hilliard in tackles with
11, while Roderick Alderman, Wade and senior LB
Amos Geiger had eight stops each. Senior DB Shayne
Alderman had six tackles on the night. Sophomore DT
Vinnie Durney also recovered a fumble for the
Flashes.
Whittenburg said it was an all-out team effort but
said he was especially proud of his defense for pitch-
ing its first shutout of the season. He also said he
notices a difference in the team's attitude.
"Everybody played their assignments, they were
talking to each other and they were having fun," the
coach said. "That's what it takes to be successful.
"It was a different environment around here this
week and especially (on Friday). Everything was a lit-
tle bit more subdued, which tells me they were think-
ing about what they had to do."
Whittenburg said his players know the importance
of winning their remaining games if the Flashes are
to realize the pre-season goal of playing for a state
championship. But at the same time, he said they
don't need to feel pressure.
"We just need to go out and play like we're capa-
ble of playing," he said. "If our players are doing that,
there isn't any reason for them to feel pressured."
The Flashes are set to travel to Bronson Friday
before returning for a homecoming game against
Hawthorne Oct. 7. Both games are set to kick off at
7:30 p.m.

With the outerbands of
Hurricane Rita bringing rain and
wind earlier in the day, there was
some uncertainty as to whether
the Fernandina Beach Men's

closed until 11 a.m. When the
skies cleared, 57 men showed up
to tee off at noon to play the
north and south courses. Two
players, Claude Hartley (90) and
Tom Roberts (80) tied for indi-
vidual honors at plus 8. D.D.
Miller took third with an 88 good

The team of Roberts plus 8,
Bob Sibley (83, plus 2), Jim
Robertson (83, plus 1) and Jack

ors at plus 17.
Steve Johnson (74, plus 3),
Bob Best (with one of his better
rounds of even par 73 and plus
4), Joe Parrish (77, minus 1) and
Terry Lacoss (85, plus 4) came

In third place at plus 9 was
the team which included Bo
Alvarez, with a 5 under par round
of 68 and plus 3, Wesley Poole
(76, plus 5), Rudy Campanale
(92, plus 2) and Bill Larrabee
(94, minus 1).
Hartley's plus 8 supported by
Doug Wolfe (88, plus 5), and
Cecil Gill (87, plus 1) was
enough to overcome John Bray's
,(93, minus 9) to take fourth at
plus 5.
In the closest-to-the-pin con-
test sponsored by Escapade
Casino (proceeds to the scholar-
ship fund) held on the par 3 eight
north hole, the winner from the
white tee was Joe Parrish with J.
E Kreger being the winner from
the gold tee.
On Friday, 60 men participat-
ed in the blitz being played on
the south and west courses,
although one player had to with-
draw due to illness (Jack Sipes).
Tom Roberts (80) had anoth-
er good round as he shared indi-
vidual honors at plus 9 points
with Sammy Alvarez (78). Third
place went to Larry Brauda (80,
plus 6).
An all-plus team of George
Henderson (103, plus 2), Frank
Gagnier (78, plus 2), Charles
Fennr (75, plus 2) and Joe Parrish
(73, plus 4) finished at plus 10
and first place.

Ferrell (89, plus 1), Woody
Kallas (84, plus 5), Rich
Vredenburgh (89, even), Johnny

2) and Bob Sibley (83, plus 4),
Wayne Mortenson (91, plus 5),
Sam DuBose (85, plus 1),
Tommy Purvis (96, minus 2).

Breakfast mixer
Twenty-eight players took
part in the FBMGA Saturday
Morning Breakfast Mixer with
Freddie Boatright capturing first
place with a 74, good for plus 9
points.
He was followed by Roger
Smith (79, plus 6). There was a
tie for third at plus 3 between
Bob Howard (83) and Tim
Poynter (79). Simon Carter (79,
plus 1) took fourth with Peter
Cavasino (92, even) finishing
sixth.
The third quarter shootout,
involving the 10 leading winners
in the quarter, was held following
the completion of the mixer.
Three of the eligible players
were no-shows (Walter Boyd,
Jerry Dean and Tommy Purvis)
as the other seven teed off on the
north course. The two short hit-
ters somehow ended up taking
first (Wayne Mortenson, who
played well) and.Al Jump, second

have been watching over). They
were followed by Michael

ment to be held on Saturday.

!L While watching John Daly
make his long shot is quite
entertaining to see, over-swing-
ing is a very common problem
for the amateur golfer that cre-
ates a lot of havoc. The thought
process behind taking a back-
swing beyond parallel is that a
longer arc will create mbre
dubhead speed. That is a true statement,
but if you are all out of balance in trying to
swing so hard, is there really any benefit?
Since everybody's mechanics are different,
only a half-swing may be perfect for you.
The key to determining what will produce
the best shot in, your arsenal is to swing
back as far as you can turn your shoulders
without tilting them or losing your balance.
The only way to get a true description of
what the best shot is for you is to practice
and find out what feels right each time.

Surprises from



deep channels


"I think it may be too rough to
fish in the open ocean this morn-
ing," I explained to Les Whaley.
"It's pretty rough right here in
the shipping channel and we
haven't even reached the end of
the channel, where it could be
rougher than nails."
"I agree," Whaley said. "I
don't think any of our fishing
party would complain if we
stayed and fish the channel and
sound this morning. What can
we expect to catch here in the
more protected waters of the
channel?"
"We will find out in a few min-
utes," I said. "We will anchor the
boat right here where the deep
channel meets this shallow flat
and soon find out what kind of
fish are feeding today."
It was late September and
many of the warm water species
of saltwater game fish were still
calling Amelia Island their home,
particularly in the deep waters of
the sound.
Typically, strong currents
running in the channel collect
game fish in the eddies of the
deep channel waters where they
prey on baitfish and discarded bi-
catches from local shrimp boats
navigating the deep channel
waters to and from their fishing
waters and homeport
Today the tide was running
hard as we found a water depth
of 25 feet, where I dropped the
boat's large anchor.
Menhaden, an oily baitfish,
were soon barbed to 30-pound
terminal fishing tackle and
dropped down to the bottom
where we waited patiently for big
game fish action.
"Look at the Lowrance fish
finder; it's showing a lot of bait-
fish holding close to the bottom
and those large inverted birds
above the baitfish are large fish,"
I said. "If you noticed while we
were navigating the nearby deep
waters, the Lowrance fish finder
was showing very little activity
on its large screen."
Fifteen minutes passed with-
out a strike when Cheryl.
Draear's rod tip began to :ome
alive.
However, after a pair of
twitches, the rod tip remained
dead still. Seconds later, her fish-
ing pole took a deep bend and
she was soon fighting a fairly


large St.

nel fish.

Fortunately Draear's big fish

channel bass!
For the next three hours, our
fishing party hooked and g
released ared drumpon weighing to
30 pounds, even hooking a mys-
tery ishi that turned out to be a
100-pound ray! A few sharks
joined the party, including black
tip and shovelnose that caused
quite a bit of interest from fresh
water fishermen.
The St. Marys shipping to 50han-
nel harbors excellent fishing
year round, particularly during
the warmer months when fis other
men have the opportunity tod
catch game fish weighing over
the 100-pound mark.

eighing to 90pounds, sharks. With
weighing to 300 pounds, rays
weighing to 150 pounds, red

cothebia weighing to 80 pounds and
kingwaters; mackerel weighing to 50

All of these species of big
gamexelleish can be caughtwithout
fishing in the open waters of the
ocean. With this in mind, deep-
Water fishing can bevenjoyed in
theSt Marys shipping channelder,
without the long boat ride to dis-

the-price of fuel today, this is a
major bonus for area fishermen.

grouper, developed by the
National Marine Fisheries
Service and the Gulf of Mexico
Fishery Management Council,
annually allocates 1.25 million
pounds of red grouper to recre-
ational harvesters, and 5.31 mil-
lion pounds to commercial har-
vesters. More than 90 percent of,
all red grouper landed in the Gulf
are harvested from state or fed-
eral waters off Florida, and most
of these fish are harvested far-
ther offshore in federal waters.
State and federal regulations
manage the recreational harvest
of red grouper with bag and size
limits, and the commercial har-
vest is managed with a size limit,
daily vessel trip limits and an
annual harvest quota. The com-
mercial Gulf red groulper fishery
reached its quota and closed
from Nov.15 through Dec. 31 last
year, and the commercial fishery
will likely reach its. quota and
close in October this year.
Also last year, the recreational
red-grouper harvest exceeded its
annual allocation by 159 percent,
and as a result, the NMFS imple-
mented an interim rule to ensure
the recreational red grouper fish-
ery remained within its alloca-
tion during 2005 and the stock


rebuilding schedule stayed on
track. This interim rule reduced
the daily red grouper recreation-.
al bag limit in federal waters
from two fish to one fish and
reduced the aggregate grouper
bag limit in federal waters from
five fish to three fish. The rule
also prohibits the recreational,
harvest of all grouper species
from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31.
The interim rule will be in
effect for 180 days and could be
extended for an additional 180
days, and NMFS has requested
that the FWC adopt a consistent
rule for Florida state waters. The
NMFS interim rule did not
address the commercial red
grouper fishery because com-
mercial landings did not exceed
their quota in either 2003 or
2004.
In June, the FWC considered
and rejected the NMFS request
to implement its interim rule pro-
visions in Florida waters, citing
concerns of undue economic
hardship to Florida's recreational
and charter industry. As a pre-
cautionary measure, the FWC
agreed to lower the red grouper
bag limit to one fish only if
NMFS took similar action, how-
ever this did not occur, and no

action was taken by the FWC.
Currently the GMFMC is con-
sidering a range of management
alternatives for red grouper (and
also for gag and black grouper),
including bag, size and vessel
limits and closed seasons. The
GMFMC is expected to make a
final decision on these alterna-
tive actions in October.
The FWC is proposing a
reduction in the red grouper
recreational daily bag limit from
two fish to one in state waters to
help ensure that recreational har-
vests do not impede the rebuild-
ing plan for this species, and a
final public hearing on this pro-
posal will take place at the
FWC's Nov. 30-Dec. 1 meeting in
Key Largo.

Workshop on weakfish
The Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission will
host a workshop in Northeast
Florida to gather public input on
a proposal to modify the Atlantic
States Marine Fisheries
Commission's Interstate Fishery
Management Plan for Weakfish.
ASMFC developed the proposed
changes in response to concern
over declines in weakfish abun-
dance and commercial and recre-
ational catches. The proposal
includes reductions in recre-
ational bag limits, commercial
and recreational seasons and
bycatch allowances.
The FWC encourages people
to participate in the workshop,
which is part of a series of hear-
ings in several Atlantic Coast
states, Oct. 14 from 2-4 p.m. at
Atlantic Beach City Hall,
Commission Chambers, 800
Seminole Road.
ASMFC is composed of the 15
Atlantic Coast states and assists
in managing and conserving
coastal marine fisheries
resources shared by Florida and
the other states.
A copy of the proposed
.changes is available by calling
(202) 289-6400 or online at
www.asmfc.org. Anyone requir-
ing special accommodations to
participate in the workshop
should call Cindy Hoffman at

COUNTY RIVALRY


PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
A county rivalry heated up Thursday in Yulee as the Lady Hornet volleyball team hosted the Fernandina Beach Middle School girls volleyball team in front of the student body. Right, the Lady
Hornets celebrate their 21-25, 25-22, 18-16 win over FBMS, left. The Lady Hornets are 3-2 on the season. "We had 54 girls try out for volleyball this year and had to make some tough deci-
sions," said YMS Coach Sandy Acosta. "Varsity girls have really learned to play the game on a higher level. They are beginning to understand the whole concept of trusting your teammates and
the duties of each position on the court. They are having fun playing and really competing. The level of play across the whole county has improved a lot this year. It is fun to have a match with a
team that has similar talent. That is what makes the game fun really having to compete and work hard to earn a win. We are definitely having to earn our wins this year."

Fall and college football go hand in hand


Dickie Anderson

FROM THE
PORCH


It's that time again. Football sea-
son. You can't avoid it. It is all
around us. The more rabid football
fans don their loyalty clothing -
shirts, ties, hats and, this year,
even flip-flops in school colors. Friendly
rivalries are renewed between friends,
co-workers and sometimes under the
same roof.
At our house this time of year
means digging out our University of
Georgia red, black and white banner
and flying it each Saturday. Like
many in our almost-Georgia commu-
nity, we root for the. Bulldogs.
You can be sure that there is a
football game on one or all the televi-
sions and one or all the radios. The


Georgia games are a must as Big Guy
remains loyal to the school where his
children went and where his son and
son-in-law played football. A big
Georgia "G" is large and prominent
on the back of his car.
Football affects planning. If I
sense Big Guy is reluctant to sched-
ule something you can bet that there
is a football game. It's OK, adjust-
ments are made.
Old habits are hard to break, and
after 20 years of rooting for the
University of Iowa I still have a "Let's
Go Hawks!" in me and root for the
black and gold. Before settling in the
South, I thought Big Ten football was
the Big Time, but have since learned


that Southerners take football rivalry
to a new level.
My first Georgia-Florida game
was baptism by fire. I was impressed.
The stadium was packed with a
boisterous crowd. Everyone was
dressed from head to toe in red,
white and black or orange and blue.
No exceptions. Neutrality wasn't an
option
As we start our fall ritual of watch-
ing college football, we marvel at how
much younger the players look each
year. We couldn't be getting older,
could we? We attend fewer games
and prefer our front-row seats in front'
of the television with a big bowl of
freshly popped corn and a cold beer.


We appreciate no lines at the rest
room and not fighting the crowds.
What is it about football that so
fascinates the American people? A
football game is hard to match for
excitement. It is never over until the
last second. It is a game where for-
tunes reverse in a blink. It is the ulti-
mate sporting soap opera- anything
can happen impossible field goal
attempts, tipped-ball interceptions,
quarterback sneaks, a goal-line stand
or a last-second extra point.
Ready or not it IS that time of year.
So are you ready for some football?
Dickie Anderson welcomes
your comments at dickiemm@
bellsouth.net.

An Excellent Etiquette Class will
be held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct 16
at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.
The class is for children ages 6
to 11 and is not a ho-hum lecture
about proper behavior, says teacher
Jaime Hamilton in a press release.
In fact the 4-hour class is effective
in teaching children manners
because almost every lesson is a
fun activity. The first two hours con-
sists of social etiquette, including
proper handshaking, impressive
phone manners, proper introduc-
tions, conversation skills and much
more.
"Unfortunately, we are judged
throughout our lives by our hand-,
shake," states Hamilton, director
of The Volusia Academy of


E


Etiquette, the company conduct-
ing the class. "They are tested dur-
ing the class and upon graduation.
This lesson alone will make a pos-
itive impact on the rest of their
lives." The children will learn
important social lessons as well as
essential everyday manners, such
as sitting like a lady or gentleman'
and respect for self and others.
Dining issues are covered in the
\ second half of the class while the
children eat a multi-course dinner.
"Eating seems to be the children's
favorite part of the class," says
Hamilton. "We actually cover 65
table manners, how to properly cut
food and posture. They physically
set an informal and formal place
setting before the meal begins."

CATS ANGELS


Hi everybody, I'm so excit-
ed to be this week's kitty! My
name is "Juanita" and I've
been with the Angels for
months now. I was blessed
by them rescuing me when I
was a very sick kitten. In fact
it has taken months of TLC
and lots of different antibi-
otics to get me well. And still
sometimes I'm known to
sneeze a good one, but I'm
not sick, it's just me! What I
am is the doggoned sweetest
kitty around. I love people, I
love toys, I love to play, I love
other cats, what I would real-
ly love is a home. So lucky
for you, we still have the
"Black Tie Affair" going on
where all the formally attired,
black or black-and-white kit-
ties like myself are only $50,
saving you $25, so you can
buy us lots
of toys and treats! Cool
deal, especially when you
realize I'm already tested for
FIV/Leukemia, spayed and
