10 teachers to transfer to Yulee High


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Eight instructors from
Fernandina Beach High School
and two from West Nassau High
School have been selected to
transfer to Yulee High School for
the 2006-7 school year.
Nassau County Schools
Superintendent John Ruis said the
transfers are voluntary and that
the teachers will make up a "lead-
ership team" for the new school.
"Phase one (of the hiring


', : process) is
Syui:' % "" establishing
the leader-
ship team,"
Ruis said,
adding that
the 10 new
Yulee High School instructors will

likely be departmental chairs.
"They have all expressed an
interest in these positions at (Yulee
High School) ... we posted the
positions and they applied for
them and interviewed for them,"
Ruis said.


Four of the transfers are coach-
es. George Nelson will transfer
from West Nassau High School,
where he is currently an assistant
football coach for the Warriors.
Nelson will be the athletic director
and head football coach at Yulee.
Three head coaches are among
the teachers transferring from
Fernandina Beach, including head
softball coach Lesley Slaughter,
head basketball coach Brian
Shuster, and head volleyball coach
Suzanne Morse.
The process for hiring the rest


of the instructors for Yulee High
School will begin in January, Ruis
said, when voluntary transfers
from only Fernandina Beach High
School will begin.
After that. districtwide volun-
tary transfers will begin, and then
if involuntary transfers are neces-
sary they will likely begin in April
2006.
"Of course we hope that won't
be necessary," Ruis said. "We don't

County officials clash over reserves


BENJAMIN PRICE
News Leader
Clerk of Court John Crawford
has criticized the Nassau County
Commission for funding employee
raises out of county reserves.
However. County
Administrator Mike Mahaney
maintains the money was placed in
reserves specifically for that pur-
pose at the clerk's staff's recom-
mendation.
At its Oct. 12 meeting the coun-
ty commission approved an addi-
tional cost-of-living pay increase

additional salary increases from

mission for not incorporating the
raises into the 2005-6 budget,
which went into effect just 12 days
prior to the decision.
"An expenditure of that size
Crawford needs to be discussed during the
budget proceedings," Crawford
said. "Thafs why we have hear-
mployees. plus ings, so the public can hear how
Mahaney and the county's spending the money."
'ike Mullin. Crawford said his other con-
ter to the corn- cern is that "erosion of county
d objected. to reserves" is one reason NewYork


bond agencies have cited for low-
ering the county's bond rating,
which affects its borrowing costs.
Those rating are to be reviewed in
December.
In his letter Crawford recom-
mends the county use "cash for-
ward adjustments" instead of
reserves to pay for the salary
increases. The money could be
transferred in January or
February, and the employees
could be paid retroactively.
Mahaney disagrees.

deputy


resigns

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Nassau County Tax Collector
Gwen Miller's chief deputy is step-
ping down after just 14 months on
the job.
Michael Love said Tuesday he
will resign as the tax collector's
chief deputy comptroller effective
Monday. Love, 41), said he has not
accepted another position at this
time. but added he has had some
offers. None of the offers were in
county government, he said.
He is leaving to pursue a career
in communications and computer
technology, as well as complete a
master's degree in business.
"It was a good time, calendar
wise, to make this happen now,"
Love said. "The tax rolls are com-
pleted, bills are out and updates to
the computer technology have
been taken care of. I have the
utmost respect for Mrs. Miller. I
firmly believe she's been and con-
tinues to be a good steward for the
county and its public trust I believe
in her and support her."
Both Miller and Love said there
was an understanding when he
took the job last August that Love
would re-evaluate his position after
one year.
He told Miller he had no inten-
tion of pursuing a career in tax col-
lecting, but she was a longtime
friend who was "under the gun" to
complete several major projects
last year.
Love was hired for 860,000 a
year, with the primary task of mov-
ing the office from 14th Street to its
current Focation at the Nassau
County Government Complex on
Nassau Place Road in Yulee. He
also updated the office's technolo-

In case of fire, it pays to:be prepared


ALICE WALSH
News Leader
October is Fire Safety
Month, and it's a good
time to review preven-
tive practices in and
about the home. However, fires
can occur in spite of precautions
for a number of reasons, and we
all need to know exactly what to
do if one should occur.
First of all, don't try to save
anything other than lives.
Tragically, many people have'
been trapped in burning house in
an attempt to save valuables or
precious mementos. Just get
everyone out, and leave the rest
for the fire department to handle.
Just as with a hurricane, the
secret of survival is to plan
ahead. Schools do, but only 54


4..-"49


percent of
families with
children
have dis-
.cussed what:
to do in case-
of a home
fire, and


very few have actually held a
drill.
Most people do not realize
how quickly a blazing fires
spreads. Every second couhts,'
and family members need to
know exactly what they are to do
so they do not have to think of
solutions in the middle of a-disas-
ter. There may be no time for
that.
The Home Safety Cotincil
offers the following steps to take
in preparation:
*Early warning. There


should be smoke alarms on each
story and in every area where
people sleep, and they should be
checked every fall and spring.
Do this when the time changes
as a reminder.
Sketch out a floor plan of
ypur home and designate two
escape routes from each room,
marking them clearly on the
plan. Make copies and post them
in each room until all family
members are familiar with them.
If you have a multi-story
home, purchase fire escape lad-,
ders for upstairs bedrooms. A
stairway may be blocked by fire.
Identify and remedy any-
thing in your home that could
possibly interfere with the ability
to get out quickly, such as win-
dows that are stuck or hard to
open, or heavy furniture block-


ing apath or exit '
It is vitally important to
know just what to do and move
quickly, so hold family drills
occasionally, even unexpectedly
at night, to test each family mem-
ber's ability to awaken and
respond. If someone does not
awaken easily, assign a buddy, if
possible, to help him/her waken
and escape.
Finally, designate a place to
meet outside so that everyone
can be accounted for, and empha-
size that no one is to go any-
where else. Sometimes we hear
tragic stories of someone losing
his/her life by running back into
a burning building to save a fami-
ly member who had already
escaped but was standing some-
where else.

WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 26.2005 NEWS News-Leader


MOSQUITO Continued from 1A
The Nassau County
Commission has discussed sev-
eral options to ameliorate the mos-
quito problem, such as forming its
own district, or coordinating with
Amelia Island Mosquito Control
to expand off the island.
But that's not as easy as it
sounds.
Mosquito control is expensive.
Preliminary estimates earlier this
year found that just expanding
the district west to 1-95 could cost
more than $600,000. At the cur-
rent 0.14 mill tax rate, that would
cause about a $400,000 shortfall.
So far, neither the county nor
the district is willing to pick up
the tab.
Expansion has been a hot
issue on the control district's
board of directors.
Former director James
Clauson accused board Chairman
Troy Pitts of "holding the county
hostage over the issue," prompt-
ing Clauson's bitter departure in
August
Pitts reiterated his concern
Oct 19 that expansion might raise
taxes for everyone in the district,
wipe out its reserves and sacri-
fice its current level of service on
the island.
If a referendum allows county
residents an opportunity to vote
on expansion, then he said tax-
payers already within the district
deserve a referendum of their
own.
Board member Jack Bass also
stressed that it shouldn't be an
overnight change.
He said the expansion could
be "explosive" and wanted it care-
fully investigated before the board
"goes off the deep end."
"People out there (in the coun-
ty) are begging for something,"
he said. "People here (on the
island) don't want to do it. We
don't want to rush through
this, but work at it, and make it
right-" : :
Bass volunteered to contact
other Florida control districts that
have recently expanded, to dis-
cuss the challenges of such a.
move.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said Thursday he wel-
comed the control district's will-
ingness to restart any discussions
on expansion.
Previous investigations into a:
countywide service proved too
expensive, he said. The county
would prefer the more "econom-
ically feasible" idea of expanding
the control district east to 1-95 for
a few years, then expanding it fur-
ther.
The discussions can't come

The district also has indi-

The district said Friday it
costs each subdivision about
$3,000 a season to receive

The district sends "propos-

Now that he's living without

effective, he said, than purchasing
a $200 "Mosquito Deleto" unit for

some subdivisions in the county

LOVE Continued from 1A
tration and helped Miller finish the
2004 tax rolls.
At the time Miller was under-
staffed due to Greg Haddock's suc-
cessful campaign for the office of
county tax assessor. Haddock han-
dled computer operations for Miller
as well as the job of deputy tax
assessor.
"The relocation of the comput-
ers, equipment and tax records was
a major responsibility," Miller said.
"Michael took care of that for me
and ensured that the equipment
worked properly and that we stayed
in budget
"He promised me one year
when I hired him as my assistant
He's fulfilled that promise and has
completed the major projects
assigned to him," she said.
Love's hiring last year was not
without controversy.
Miller's opponent in the 2004
election, Democrat Ray Harper, has
filed a complaint with the Florida
Elections Commission alleging
Love's hiring was improper.
Harper says Love was Miller's
campaign manager and claims she
did not advertise the deputy comp-
troller position or include it in the
office's budget.
Love disputed the claim
Tuesday that he was ever her cam-
paign manager. He said he helps
design mailings and develop cam-
paign strategy for several candi-
dates every election cycle, and

Miller was just one of several can-
didates he helped in the 2004 elec-
tion.
He was also adamant Harper's
allegations did not influence his
departure.
"Some political challenge has
nothing to do with how I do my job
and when I choose to move on,"
Love said.
Miller said Tuesday the deputy
position was budgeted beforehand
but would not comment further
due to Harper's pending complaint
She did say that she has the author-
ity as a constitutional officer to
hand-pick the position.
"It's up to me to select my chief
deputy and find someone I can
work with and someone who will
work with me. You just don't pick
them up on the street," shesaid.
She will fill the position "in due
time," Miller said, but was not in a
rush since the tax rolls have been
completed.
Love said he handled several
daily functions in the office as
deputy comptroller, including
the creation and supervision of the
tax roll for the tax collector, distri-
bution of tax funds, payroll and
quarterly reports, bookkeeping and
supervision of the tax and tag
offices.
Prior to being hired as comp-
troller, Love had 14 years' experi-
ence in financial reporting and
fund-raiser consulting for cham-
bers of commerce.

Federal Reserve aims



to control inflation


Interest rates.
Inflation.
These topics will be
subjects of copious commentary
in coming months as a new Fed
chairman takes the reins. They
each have a direct impact on our
lives.
The Fed adjusts interest
rates to control inflation.
Inflation is the continuous rise
of prices.
When you fill up your car,
you can see and feel the icy grip
of inflation, as gas prices have
risen to nearly $3 per gallon. It
used to be that gas was only
cents per gallon, a stamp cost
pennies and you could take in a
movie with popcorn for a nickel.
- These reflect inflationary
pressures. A controlled rise in
prices is expected, and usually
healthy. Runaway inflation is
detrimental to your pocketbook,
the economy and most assets.
Some Can remember the
early 1980s, when inflation
soared and interest rates
pushed upward into the high
teens. You see, the Fed raises
interest rates to try to slow
down an overheated economy,
much like you use the brakes
on your car. A stable, pre-
dictable economy is desirable.
When the economy appears
weak, as it did a few years ago,
the Fed will reduce rates to try
to invigorate spending and busi-

ness activity.
The Fed is
currently
raising rates
to control
economic
growth and
stay ahead
of inflation.
The early
1980s were
a difficult
time. Prices
increased 40
percent in
three years,
from 1979 to
1981. Every
time you


went to the grocery store, your
bill mushroomed in price.
The prime lending rate
peaked at 21.5 percent in
December 1980. This rate is
currently in the 6 percent range,'
and is the benchmark for fixed- .
rate mortgages.
By 1982, mortgage rates sky-
rocketed to 17.5 percent. This
meant a monthly mortgage pay-
ment on a S200,000 loan was
nearly $3,000 compared.to
less than 81,200 at today's lower
rates.
You don't have to be a Yale
economist to see the difference
there. ,
Many pundits applaud low
interest rates for the refreshing
real estate boom. At a-tie -i


when the stock ;nd bond mar-
kets are struggling, a rip-roar-
ing real estate market has boost-
ed consumer confidence and
kept a teetering economy afloat.
Not many places in the U.S.
have witnessed an explosion in
prices like we have here. Yet,
according to some local real
estate experts, values are still
increasing by about 2 percent
per month in our area. This
despite the attempts by the Fed
to slow down the economy -
and particularly a real-estate
market that some fear has over
heated and formed a precarious
bubble.
Real estate, and its prices,
are difficult to get your arms
around. Tlis is because each
real estate' nrket is different.
Rising interest rates, which cre-
ate higher rhortgage rates, will
eventually put a squeeze on
property values (it simply costs
more to borrow). However, the
economic equation of supply
and demand also comes into
play.
If you've looked around, with
each new house or business
being built here, there is less
suliply of new land. And the
demand'here for property is and
will continue to be staggering.
This is a winning and desir-
able equationi in terms of prices.
Steve Nicklas is a financial
adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

Setting financial goals
Seven questions to think about:
1. Is the goal realistic?
2. Is the goal worthwhile how will you benefit from the goal?
3. Is the goal something you want?
4. Is the goal specific?
5. Does it have a completion date?
6. Does it have a built-in cost per month is it in your budget?
7. What activities are needed to support the goal (education
about investing, direct deposit, separate savings account)?
Differentiate between short-term (1-2 years) and long-term
goals (3-10 years).

How to budget for the holidays
Meg McAlpine, a family and consumer science agent with
the University of Florida Nassau County Extension Service, is
offering a special "How To Budget For The Holidays" work-
shop on Wednesday. Nov. 30, from 1-2:30 p.m. at the
Barnabas Center, 11 South 11th St. in Femandina Beach.
She emphasizes that there is more to the holidays than
spending money and buying gifts and offers the following tips:
Before setting out on a shopping trip, ask yourself these
questions:
Do you remember the gifts you received last year?
Do you ever buy more than is needed or spend more than
you can afford?
Does it take you three months or more to pay off Christmas
purchases?
Write down family traditions and think about what brings a
smile to your face when you think about the holidays. What is
the one thing you'd most like to do this holiday?
Next, establish a holiday gift budget (based on available
resources).
Keep this with you at all times It will help you avoid
impulse buying and go through the stores faster and remain
focused.

"Drowning in a sea of debt?" a
familiar ad asks. And with good rea-
son.
Personal bankruptcy rates are
up 29 percent in the past five years,
American teens spent more than
$172 billion last year and, according
to the Federal Reserve, credit card
debt is at an all-time high, says Meg
McAlpine.
"I've got people who have
stopped paying (their bills) because
they are so overwhelmed," said
McAlpine, a family and consumer
science agent with the University of
Florida Nassau County Extension
Service.
McAlpine is providing free finan-
cial consultations each Wednesday
from 1-3:30 p.m. at the Barnabas
Center, 11 South 11th St., now
through Nov. 23.
The one-hour, confidential ses-
sions are aimed at "anybody who
wants to take control over their
spending and learn skills to handle
their money," said McAlpine.
"I know of different resources
to help people," she explained. And
the sessions aren't aimed only at
those in financial trouble. McAlpine
will talk to people of all means, from
teenagers wondering how to save
for college to seniors adjusting to liv-
ing on a fixed or reduced income.
"It doesn't matter what age,"
says McAlpine. "When do you sit
down and develop a budget? It's
providing that structure." Making
time to take a hard look at spending
and saving habits can help avoid
financial pitfalls in the future, she
notes.

Often, said McAlpine, people
"just are not making good choices
and they can't figure out why
they're in debt"
Things we think are essential -
caller ID, cell phones, call waiting,
satellite TV, weekly manicures -
often add up to a lot, just in small
increments.
"Let's say you buy two sodas a
day that's $20 a month you could
be putting in a savings account,"
she said. "You don't realize how the
dollar here, the 50 cents there" adds
up.
Still, there is one problem
McAlpine sees again and again.
"Credit card debt is so big," she
said. And she warns, "Nobody can
repair your credit only you can.
Don't pay anybody to repair your
credit. Time (and good manage-
ment) will repair it"
In more desperate cases
McAlpine can put people in touch
with Jacksonville Place, a non-prof-
it consumer credit counseling serv-
ice run through Family Counseling

County Commissioner Ansley
Acree has added to her legacy of
cost to Nassau County by her cam-
paigning for the added pay increase
and unbreakable contracts for
(County Attorney Mike) Mullin
and (County Administrator Mike)
Mahaney. So far during her tenure,
the taxpayers have been assaulted
with the outrageous cost of the
county courthouse, a tax increase,
the reduction of the wetland pro-
tection by 50 percent, a 5-cent-a-
gallon increase to our already sky-
rocketing gas prices, an increase in
trash costs and a sterile approach to
the Crane Island issue.
While touting the merits of
county employees, one of whom is
the county administrator, an esti-
mated $1 million was embezzled
without detection. The only com-
missioner that seems to object to
you: and-your follow-along com-

Legal rights
My husband and I have owned
a simple home on North 14th Street
for over five years and have for the
most part been pleased with our
investment We worked hard to buy
the home, and one of the main fea-
tures that pleased us about it was
that it was a two-story home on a
large lot that was zoned R-2, which
would allow ;us to convert the
basement to an apartment to pro-
vide income for us during our
retirement years.
We recently decided to retire
elsewhere, placed ourhome on the
sales market and got a fair offer
rather quickly, mainly again due to
* the fact that the home was zoned R-


2. When the buyer approached the
city with the plans we had drawn up
to convert the home to a duplex
(at a cost of $1,200), he was told
that permits for this would not be
issued due to the conflict between
the zoning and the density issue.
Because of this, the home had
to be re-appraised as a single-fam-
ily home and the loan- process
begun again. The difference in the
appraised value of our home as a
duplex and the appraised value as
a single family home was $140,000,
and of course the buyer is not will-
ing to pay for something that he
will not be able to develop in the
manner that the city has promised
by the zoning since the house was
built in 1975. Therefore, in order to
fulfill our dream of retiring early, we
had to either accept a lower offer
for our home or be willing to con-
tinue working and fight the city
over the issue.
We have. been informed that we
can apply for "Determination of
Vested Rights" to the city. After
picking up these forms and review-
ing them, I agree with Marilyn
Williamson's remarks in the News-
Leader ("Change looms for old
neighborhoods," Oct. 19), no citi-
zen should have to hire a lawyer to
protect their rights in this matter.
We elected the city commissioners
for that job and it's about time they
started to do it.
If the city has a problem with a
conflict between zoning and density
issue, then it should have been
brought to the attention of the vot-
ers and any changes in the validity
of the past zoning should have been
approved by us and fair.compen-
sation should have been offered to
the property owners that these
changes would affect.
The city has no legal right to
arbitrarily decide to change in mid-
stream without t this approval. Nor
do they have the right to demand
that a homeowner prove to them
that they have lost vested rights
when they obviously know what
their actions have caused, other-

wise why would they have drawn
up these papers? I recently asked
an employee in the Planning
Department if the city was pre-,
pared to pay for the lawsuits that
are going to arise from these
actions and was told very firmly
"yes." Unfortunately the city is
intending to use more of our tax
money to pay for more foolish deci-
sions made on their part; you would
have thought they learned their
lesson with the three homes on
South Fletcher.
We for one have better things to
do with the time we have left in life
than waste six months or more of
it fighting the city to try to recoup
what we have lost by their actions
but will gladly sign for a class action
stit if there is any attorney willing
to step forward and takeit on. You
can feel free to call us if you're inter-
ested.

Fire kid to fire captain
Recently a' spectacular event


took place in the history of
Fernandina Beach. A young man
who grew up in a little place called
"O'Neal" was promoted to the posi-
tion of captain of fire-rescue. He is
known by many other names such
as Deacon Scott, Coach, Wet Willie,
The Drummer Boy, etc.
Here is a man that is home-
grown in this community, has
served in many capacities and has
come up through the ranks against
outstanding opposition to reach a
plateau, better yet a milestone in
the city, and there is no coverage,
no photos and no story. Mr. Editor,
don't forget about the homegrown
folk who Imake this community
what it is. Deacon Scott, we have
not forgotten about you. On behalf
of the Burns Family, we say "con-
gratulations.".If nobody else will,
we'll toot our own horn.

* Never pay income tax again!
The "Fair Tax" does just that It
also eliminates capital gains taxes,
taxes on investments, gift taxes,
taxes when you die, alternative min-
imum tax and taxes on businesses
called embedded taxes. These
embedded taxes add about 22 per-
cent to the cost of everything we


buy. If we replace that embedded 22
percent tax with a 22 percent sales
tax the price of goods won't change;
the government gets their confis-
catory amount and we get all of
our paycheck. That means no
income tax, no Medicare tax and no
social security tax.
But what about the poor, won't
they pay more? With the rebate
* check that gives every family a
monthly amount to cover-basic
necessities up to poverty level, the
poor pay no taxes at all. The bene-
fits don't stop there. Having no busi'

Welcome to


Jax North

N assau County Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham said Friday a proposal to
build three overpasses on AIA was well
received at a transportation summit
sponsored by the First Coast Metropolitan
Planning Organization.
That's important because support from the leg-
islators, congressional aides and MPO representa-
tives attending the summit will be crucial to obtain
the tens of millions of dollars that will be needed
to build the overpasses.
But how well received has the proposal been in
Nassau County? We don't know because no public
hearings have been held to solicit support from
the citizenry.
The overpasses "flyovers" to some would
span Nassauville Road, Chester Road and US 17,
eliminating the need for traffic on AIA to stop or
slow at those intersections. That would speed the
passage from Amelia Island to 1-95.
But what are the consequences for local traffic
and residents on those roads? What does it mean
for commercial development already under way or
planned at those busy intersections? What will be
done to prevent bottlenecks from forming at other
S earby int su a I
plackroce A P '. .
The citizens had an opportunity to have their
say during public hearings for proposed widening
of AIA to six lanes. That construction is scheduled
to consume the rest of this decade.
The proposed overpasses have been compared
to those being built near Regency Mall in
Jacksonville. Do we want the A1A corridor to look
like the Southside Connector leading to the mall?
That would result in a major urbanization of the
A1A corridor as it passes through O'Neil and
Yulee.
Even if the MPO recommends this year that,
funds be allocated for design of the A1A overpass-
es, it likely would be a decade before the first over-
pass is built But this proposal is gathering
momentum without significant public involve-
ment.
Economic development officials may have been
involved in discussions, but the county should
solicit public comment on these overpasses.
Time flies, and the opportunity to shape this
debate will be over before you know it Maybe
that's why they're called "flyovers."


Commission failed city


The reaction was strong and varied regard-
ing former city manager Bob Mearns'
decision to step down. There was jubila-
tion among his detractors, sorrow among
his supporters, ambivalence among the politically
apathetic and fits of apoplexy accompanied by
tantrums, from Vice Mayor Don "Beano" Roberts.
The resignation was, however, predictable.
The charter says that the city manager serves "at
the pleasure of the city commission." Mr. Mearns
concluded, correctly, that he no longer held the con-
fidence of the commission's majority, so the only
sensible thing to do was resign. He did the right
thing.
While a commissioner, I was one of three who
voted to hire Bob Mearns, and I still consider him a
personal friend. His accomplishments were many,
including the effort to purchase the water utility
from Florida Public Utilities and building Seaside
and North Beach parks, but so were his problems.
According to the charter, one of the primary
responsibilities of the city manager is to execute, or
carry out, all city laws, codes, regulations and rules.
He failed to do that. The list of ignored, or selectively
enforced, codes and ordinances is long and reveal-
ing: the infamous "three houses" on South Fletcher,
the 1,000 trees clear-cut adjacent to Lakewood subdi-
vision, the two structures demolished within the his-
toric district, the sign ordinance and the short-term
rental ordinance are just a few of those laws, rules
and codes that were either haphazardly enforced, or
overlooked completely.
All of the above are symptomatic of a dysfunction-
al planning/building department, and the road to
occupational demise, at least for a city manager,
often goes right through that controversial depart-
ment.
The people of this community may be dismayed
and disheartened at the absence of a coherent plan
for our downtown waterfront, persistent problems at
the airport or infighting among city staff, but they
have little or no tolerance for a selective enforcement
of codes or an apparent disregard for them.
The tantrum-throwing Commissioner Roberts, as
is his practice, and oblivious to the obvious, seeks to
blame others for the resignation of Mr. Mearns. He
blames, and not necessarily in this order, Mayor Ken


Walker, Commissioner Joe
Gerrity, Commissioner Bill
SLeeper, "no-growth" naysay-
ers, know-it-alls and small-
minded ciizens" who have
the audacity to attend com-
j mission meetings and, in his
21 words, "make noise."
In any situation merely
SJ blaming others and accusing
Si them of misconduct is not
only unattractive, demeaning
Ron Sapp and petty, but it's counterpro-
----- *. ..- ductive. Vice Mayor Roberts
should examine his own role
THE NO in the former city manager's
'SPIN' ZONE resignation. After all, the char-
ter requires the city commis-
sion to supervise the city manager, and maybe, just
maybe, with appropriate supervision, some of the
aforementioned problems could have been avoided:
Consider.
1. Roberts could have suggested that the commis-
sion hold a public meeting to discuss the city manag-
er's job performance. Such a meeting would have, 1)
provided the commission an opportunity to collec-
tively express and outline areas of concern, and 2)
provided Mr. Mearns an opportunity to hear those
concerns from the entire commission and publicly
address them. Roberts didn't do that. .
2. Roberts could have suggested that the commis-
sion outline their concerns in writing. Once done, he
could have made the motion to acknowledge those
concerns and give the city manager a specific time
period to improve or correct them. He didn't do that
either. .
3. Roberts could have publicly expressed his con-
cerns about the lack of code enforcement and
enforcement inconsistencies, assuming he had
them. Such expressions from one of his strongest
supporters might have prompted the city manager to
make positive adjustments in this and other areas of
concern. But Roberts was silent.
Some might call this direct supervision "micro-
managing," I call it "doing your job." It can be
. argued, successfully I think, the commission's abdi-
cation of its charter-mandated supervisory role gave


manager

an aggressive manager like Mr. Mearns a free hand
in the interpretation and enforcement, or lack of
enforcement, of city codes, and this freedom ulti-
mately was his undoing.
The manager failed the commission, yes, but in
many ways the commission failed the manager.
At the end of the day, commissioners have two
choices, 1) they can sit around blaming and demean-
ing each other and members of the community for
the resignation of Bob Mearns, or 2) they can seize
the moment for what it is, a tremendous opportunity
to demonstrate leadership.
Inherent in option two is the opportunity to hire a
city manager who will, with the commission, aggres-
sively pursue the development of policies concern-
ing the airport, a public-centered downtown water-
front, the preservation of the unique character of our
oceanfront and a commitment to a vigorously enforc-
ing city ordinances and codes, but in a fair and just
manner.
My advice to the commission? Focus on the
future, not the past. Focus on the opportunities for
success, not failure. Focus on the probabilities of
promise, not the possibility of defeat. Do these
things and a painful, chronic situation will be made
better.
An unfortunate aside:
I was taken aback by the commission's decision
to appoint the city attorney as the interim city-man-
ager. That decision, in my opinion, clearly violates
the charter, which envisions two positions, city man-
ager and city attorney.
How is the city attorney, Debra Braga, supposed
to advise the city manager, Debra Braga, as to the
legality of her executive decision? Impossible.
This impractical appointment undermines the
essential democratic concepts of separation of pow-
ers and checks and balances. I hope the commission
agrees and appoints someone else as the interim.
Vice Mayor Roberts questioned the intelligence
of the people of Fernandina Beach by laughingly say-
ing thatwe are not Rhodes Scholars. But I betthat
even we would have recognized so obvious a con-
flict; so obvious a violation of democratic principles.

VIEWPOINT/ST-VEJOHNSON/HIumARD


New math' insults county employees


Budget Crisis + County Commissioners =
Raise for Administrator.
Apparently this must be some of that
"new math" that is now being taught.
Each week the citizens of Nassau County are
bombarded with news stories of the financial crisis
that the county is in, how broke the county is and
how the credit rating is being affected. Yet, surpris-
ingly, on Oct. 12 the county administrator and coun-
ty attorney each get a total of a $20,000/year raise
("County gives $20,000 pay raises to 2"). That is a
total of, 40,000. Exactly what hat is the commission
ul lg this modneg r .r?," r
S' his past e- n .,a- oyees 8dlidffo'
even receive a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in
their annual wages. In this past week, however, the
county administrator received a 17.5 percent salary
increase, not including "other benefits."
The County Personnel Policies and Procedure
Manual. states that seniority cannot be transferred
from other agencies. Apparently that can be waived
and changed with a vote from the round table. Now,
an employee that was hired in September of 2004
has the same seniority privileges as an employee
that has worked hard for the county for 25 years.
Within the past month, there have been front-
page articles about the Nassau County Fire/Rescue .
Department. There was a story about how much a
fire captain has made this past fiscal year
("Firefighter paid $104,000 after overtime," Sept.
21). This is a 20-plus year veteran of the county who
is a professional in his field? Should he not be
allowed to make a salary comparable to that of an
administrator who has been employed here for just
over one year?
There was another front-page article about the
fire union contract ("County OKs new fire-rescue
pact," Sept. 21). It was apparent that Commissioner


The county administrator and county
attorney each get a $20,000/year
raise. Exactly what hat is the commis-
sion pulling this money rabbit from?


Ansley Acree did not want to approve the contract
for the financial impact that it may have. She is quot-
ed as having said "I thick Lte citizens would be bet-'
"ter serered'eonomically ahd4hlt countyy
Administrator Mike) Mahaney is here, and lie could
save the county money without'hurting the depart-
ment," and, "I wanted the county administrator to
have more time to look at the financial ramifications
of these provisions going forward. I also wanted to
look at how we as a county can work together to
reduce cost without reducing services. That's the
bottom line."
Yet, on Oct. 12 when the administrator's contract
came up for negotiation, Commissioner Acree
pushed forward to double the original $10,000.
Apparently spending $40,000 will not have a finan-
cial impact on the county.
The county administrator is quoted as having
"contained health care costs" as one of his accom-
plishments in the past year. This was accomplished
by increasing the amount that county employees
must pay for dependant coverage and for making
employees pay the difference if they are enrolled in'
the'PPO coverage plan. These are the same county
employees that did not receive a cost-of-living
adjustment with their salaries.
Another "accomplishment" is the soon-to-be-in-
effect 5-cent gas tax. The cost of gasoline within the


borders of Nassau County will increase by 5 cents
per gallon. The same employees that did not receive
a COLA will have to pay more for gas.
As a citizen and employee of Nassau County, I
am appalled at the decisions that are being made by
those who sit comfortably in newly furnished cham-
bers.
In a day and age wheh costs are going up for all
goods and services, citizens have to stick to a very
tight budget in order to make ends meet The com-
missioners should do the same.
There are many projects that the county is work-
ing on. There is a tremendous need for niore public
safety personnel (police and firefighters). There i a
need for a better radio system so those in public
safety can be safe. There is a need for more parks
and recreation so the citizens can live a healthy
lifestyle. There is a need for better care and services
for the senior citizens of Nassau County. There is a
need for better libraries and ballparks. There is a
need for better access to government offices. There
is a need for road improvement There are many
needs and wants developing in Nassau County. The
illogical math of trimming budgets, trimming
expenses, decreasing the mill rate, yet spending
more for administrative salaries does not make any
sense.
The commissioners need to start looking after
and taking care of all of the employees of Nassau
County, not just administrators. It sure would bp
nice if all county employees received a 17.5 percent
pay raise, but that is obviously not possible (or is
it?). However, a decent COLA is certainly acceptable
to those people that are the lifeblood of the county,
those out on the streets who put in a full day's
work to ensure that Nassau County is a great place
to live.

VIEWPOINT/DoN JONES/AMEUA ISLAND


Isairportth

W hat's really going on with Crane Island?
In listening to the comments and look-
ing at the terms of the Crane Island
.Memo of Understanding (MOU) at a
recent meeting of the Nassau County Commission,
is it possible that something beyond Crane Island is
lurking in the shadows? All the effort and expense -
Amelia Island Co. had a phalanx of paid lawyers and
experts from out of town at the meeting suggests
the Crane Island development is part of a much larg-
er picture. Why would major corporations be con-
cerned about 169 houses on Crane Island when the
return seems to be meager in light of their planned
ancillary expenses?
SPieces of the puzzle sort of came together for me
at that meeting. I thought that the move from 59
houses to 260-plus houses to 169 houses was
strafige. The 90-boat marina huge by any standard
- looks like a commercial operation if it is to sustain
itself. The number of houses planned doesn't seem
sufficient to make enough profit to build a bridge to
the island and excavate a 90-slip inland marina with
all the other public and private facilities planned.
The island's topography doesn't appear conducive to
a large and complex self-contained community: only
75 acres are said to be suitable for home construc-'
tion; valuable trees and wetlands would be doomed;

Seal goal of Crane Islan


Crane Island may be part of a much
larger resort that will include Royal
Amelia Golf Club and numerous
townhouses, condos, clubhouses.
hotels and other facilities around the
airport.

the highest point on the island was said to be 11 feet
above mean high tide, making it one of the lowest
pieces of property in eastern Nassau; and the prox-
imity to the airfield should wave a big red flag.
I had a hard time discerning who is actually
developing the island and what the big picture really
is. The testimony at the meeting made it appear that
the Crane Island development is a major Amelia
Island Co. endeavor. The descriptions seemed to
say this is Amelia Island Plantation-North.
I suspect Crane Island is the camel's nose under
the tent. I guess Crane Island will be part of a much
larger resort that will include the Royal Amelia Golf
Club, Crane Island's marina and construction of
numerous townhouses, condos, clubhouses, hotels
and other facilities around and eventually includ-
ing the airport. The airport itself appears to be the
primary objective. It would seem that development.
of the airport's land is what would make the whole
thing profitable in the long term.
The airport is bordered by two proposed devel-
opments on its eastern edge, Crane Island on the
west and Royal Amelia on the south. There is also a
wooded area between airport runway 18-36 and the
channel separating Crane Island and Amelia Island
that some observers believe to be part of the devel-
opment plan. Once the road is available to the west
of the airport that little strip of land appears to be a
logical extension of the overall development. These
projects were said to squeeze the operational viabili-


ty of two airport runways and have the potential to
end its overall viability and push it off the island.
(The Oceana and Cecil Field Naval Air Stations are
two examples of what happens when development
gets too close to airfields.) Hundreds of townhouses
and condos with related commercial and resort
activities could then be built on airport land. It was
said by one opponent that Amelia Island Co. has
been stockpiling development rights. for years -
what were called "ghost" or "virtual" rights at the
county commission meeting because these rights
were said to have no underlying land. Somebody
said it was part of the golf course.
To an unbiased, outside eye (I have been here 29
months in a state of dormancy) it appears as if a big
player is positioning itself to develop a major new
resort. They're probably thinking 30 years down the
road while islanders fight the little skirmishes one
by exhausting one. The whole thing gives the
appearance that they don't want the public to see
the big picture because the affected public might
raise objections to it. This appears to have the poten-
tial to become profitable for a few and costly for
many. The impact on the ambiance of the island,
which has so few north-south roads, could be decid-
edly negative. And the threat of serious storm
surges to this low-lying island doesn't appear to fig-
ure into the equation.
I used to be Budget Examiner for Federal
Preparedness for the federal Office of Management
and Budget, so I know a little bit about this. It is
apparent that Nassau's physical preparedness for
severe storms is limited despite the valiant efforts of
the current preparedness director. The county may
not be adequately equipped to take effective aid
from FEMA, which is a logistics organization that
must work through local public safety organizations.
If these organizations are overwhelmed, FEMA will
not be able to function. The Crane Island develop-
ment would only worsen this situation.
Nassau must take care of itself first. People are
lulled into the belief that major storms don't seem to

the 1890s the town was split in half by a storm.
Downtown had water on Centre Street up to the sec-
ond Doors. It can happen here. Pushing for better
preparedness especially for evacuations appar-
ently steps on toes because developers don't want
the controls on development densities that adequate
preparedness entails. Preparedness and evacuation
capabilities are on a collision course with the plans
for Crane Island, Royal Amelia and, I suspect, the
airport.
The public doesn't appear to have much lever-
age. I have come to believe that the county and city
governments do not always have the people's best
interest at heart. All too often they give the outward
appearance of being tools of developers especially
when they cavalierly brush aside expert testimony
from others.
I think it is time we had a county charter com-
mission (I have been told Nassau is one of the few
Florida counties without a charter). We need a peti-
tion calling for such a commission that should be
charged with review of county government in all its
,aspects. There should be a larger (perhaps 11-15
commissioners) governing body so that so few (3)
commissioners can't control decisions.
But mostly we need good citizens to take a
strong stand for the future of the county! The
impressive turnout at recent county commission
meetings on wetlands and Crane Island is a start.
We need new people with diverse expertise to run
for office.
The people with a big stake in the quality of day-
to-day life here need to participate in the governing
of Nassau County. After all, the only things Nassau
offers are quality and serenity of life. No one who
wants to continue living here can possibly want it to
become like Fairfax County, Va. Fairfax is now just
a huge parking lot with no ambiance at all. That is
why my wife and I are here and not there. .

County employees get 5% pay raises


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Many Nassau County employ-
ees will see a 5 percent pay raise
this year.
The move comes a year after
most county employees received
no cost of living increase, yet paid
more for health insurance in
2004-5.
The Nassau County Commis-
sion had already budgeted a cost
of living increase of 1.5 percent
for its 150 employees this year, but
voted to raise it an extra 1 percent
at its Oct 12 meeting.
That was based on a recom-
mendation from County

Administrator Mike Mahaney.
Another 1 percent would match
what's in the recently approved.
road and bridge union's contract,
which affects about 120 employ-
ees.
Mahaney said it's customary
to match across-the-board increas-
es for union and non-union per-
sonnel.
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves also
requested an additional 1 percent
increase Oct 12 for his 200 non-
union employees.
Their overall increase will be
only 2.5 percent, however, because
they're not eligible for the addi-
tional 2.5-percent "step" increase
received by the county commis-


COUNTY Continuedfrom 1A
He said Monday the county
commission placed additional
money in its reserve account on
SepL 2, specifically to fund unde-
termined salary increases that
were still under union negotiation.
He also said the move was sug-
gested by the clerk's finance staff,
as reflected in the meeting's min-
utes.
"Reserves for contingency
were increased at the Sept 2;meet-,
ing with the knowledge that there'


sion's employees.
The county commission's
employees get the step increase
each year if they receive a favor-
able review.
."We don't have a step plan but
we increased our cost of living
increase to match the county's
again this year in order to stay con-
sistent," Seagraves said.
The union employees in the
sheriff's department, which
includes most of the front line law
enforcement, are still in contract
negotiations.
A cost of living raise could also
be negotiated with about 80
employees in the county fire-res-
cue union.


Interim Administrative Services
Director Cathy Lewis said the
county commission felt an addi-
tional increase for its employees
this year was important for morale.
"Last year the employees
received no cost-of-living increase.
That's not very good for morale,
and it was a tough year for both
them and the county," she said.
Human resources said last year
most county employees paid 12
percent more for health insurance
despite receiving no cost of living
increase. This year, health insur-
ance costs also increased another
3-8 percent, depending on the
employee's coverage.

were still budgetary issues to be
addressed, such as the union con-'
tract negotiations. We moved
more than $630,000 to reserves
to address that."

Steve Head wants to get his
employees back to work.
His 20-year-old building con-
struction company, its employees
and his investment are in financial
jeopardy, Head told the city's
Planning Advisory Board Thursday.
"I'm in a real fix right now. I
spent a lot of money purchasing
land and encouraging other peo-
ple I know to purchase land so that
we could build townhouse proper-
ties," he said.
"Right now my business is at a
standstill because two permits that
I applied for... were turned down
arbitrarily and that is a toll on me
personally."
. On Sept. 7 the city halted
approval of all applications to build
multifamily housing in the R-2
medium density residential zoning
district. The decision put Head, and
others applyifig to build multifam-
ily projects, in limbo.
"My family's future is tied up in
this business. The families of the
people who work for me, their
futures are tied up in this business,"
he said.
But the best resolution for prop-
erty owners, developers and con-
tractors like Head is to let
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
decide, on a case by case basis,
who meets the criteria to build
based on their investment, or vest-
ed rights, the city's Planning

Advisory Board, said Thursday..
Planning Advisory Board mem-
bers voted unanimously during a
workshop to recommend this strat-
egy, proposed by city planning staff,
to the city commission. Members
agreed that property owners should
apply for a hearing on their right to
build multifamily houses in R-2
through a vested rights application
or through a board of adjustments
application.
"We need to let them (commis-
sioners) know that this is one way
to solve the problem," board Chair
Mark Bennett said, adding that
time constraints and limited staff
require expediency. "And we have
to get them on board to move for-
ward."
"My recommendation is to get it
done right, even ifit's going to take
some time," board member Paul
Condit said. "And deal with one-by-
one cases appropriately."
"It's the commission's job to.
make this kind of determination,"
Interim Planning Supervisor
Catherine, Hartley said. "Any time
we issue a permit for a duplex,
we're running the risk of getting
sued byanyone in the city .:. So
we're going to run the risk of a law-
suit either way."
The city should change the com-
prehensive plan "to allow greater
densities within the areas of the
city which were platted under the
David Yulee plat," Condit said. "I
would recommend that it be done
on an area by area or neighbor-
hood to neighborhood basis to pro-
tect those neighborhoods which
would like to develop" based on -
established character.
City Attorney Debra Braga
offered the commission that option
as one of three possible solutions
for resolving the building density
problem created by a contradiction
between the city's local landf devel-
opment codes and the state man-
dated comprehensive plan.-:-
"We can't turn our back on to
this," Condit said. "We can't tell
Catherine (Hartley) that since
nobody has paid any attention to
the comprehensive plan for the last
few years, 'Just turn your back on
that and don't pay attention to it
any more,'" he said.
But property owners and devel-
opers have said the city always fol-
lowed local guidelines to approve
multifamily housing in R-2.
"The actions of the city over the
years have encouraged people like
me to invest and itbild'in thesei-
areas," Head told board members,
explaining that he tore down a twin
family home at Tarpon and West
Fourth.
"Now I can only build a single-
family home on (the lot), given the
restrictions that have been applied
recently," he said. "I hope you will
consider the effect that your deci-
sion will have on people like me."
The previous sanction should
end and applicants should abide by
the comprehensive plan, planning
board members said.
"We're not taking anything away
from the current owner. It's who-
ever is coming in and changing the
typology and the character of the
area," said board alternate and for-
mer city planning supervisor Lupita
McClenning. "It's the redevelop-
ment that we're wrestling with
here."
"I'm very uncomfortable with
vested rights actions. And yet I see
that as an acceptable solution for
people who are in a hurry at the
moment," board member Marilyn
Williamson said. "I would notwant
to see this be the way that we han-
dle all future problems."

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
A public hearing for a contro-
versial apartment proposal on
Chester Road was postponed by
the Nassau County Commission
Monday, along with much of its
other business.
Commissioners Jim B.
Higginbotham and Tom Branan
wereboth absent from the meeting
due to illness.
The remaining commissioners
continued several items on the
agenda so they could be consid-
ered later by the full board.
The proposed 240-unit Courtney
Isles Apartment Community on
Chester Road was denied by the
Planning and Zoning Board in April
However, the county commis-
sion voted to submit the applica-


apartments
tion to the Department of
Community Affairs for review.
The public hearing for that item
was continued to 7 p.m. Nov. 14,
along with hearings concerning
developer agreements for a pro-
posed Walgreen's at the southeast
corner of US 17 and A1A,
and Buccaneer Plaza at the north-
east corner of A1A and Blackrock
Road.
Hearings concerning right of
way issues for a proposed Winn
Dixie in Callahan, and a rezoning
application for a Boys & Girls Club
in Yulee, were continued until 7
p.m. Nov. 28.
Those hearings will be held at

they have no meaning." I never wrote that
phrase again, although that is the typical way
a child begins a letter.
Looking back, I can see how, even at an
early age, my mother was teaching me to
write. In addition I was also fortunate to have
a few English teachers who were deter-
mined to teach me the fuLdamentals of
composition. I had one in high school and
another in college who insisted that I learn
grammar and composiuorn.They nearly beat
me to death, but I'm glad they did. I earn a
driving todaat leasr in part'with the skills they
taught me. I would especially like to say
'"thanks" to Dr Ed Harwood. His classes
were like Marine boot camp. but what I
learned there was priceless.
It's not terribly difficult or time-con-
suming to encourage and teach kids some of
the basics of grammar and composition.

She can hear his car before she
sees it, and runs to the inside
garage door before we even hear
the garage door opener. She's
got lots to meow to him about
her daily adventures through the

one before.
This sure beats her life of a

moved to Africa Botswana and
Tanzania for two years for a
contract I had with the U.S.

cious cat behind? No way. So we
set about the hard work of get-
ting papers and permits to move
her there with us. For nearly 48
hours, her view of the world was
from inside a pet crate through
noisy airports and in the belly of
our plane. When we finally got to
. the Johannesburg, South Africa
airport, exhausted ourselves
from the long journey, our first
course of business was to find
our cat. By advance arrange-

claim her from cargo, and take
her to the nearby Holiday Inn for
the night before reloading her "

DR. DOBSON: The answer is loving

they protest vigorously. Dr. Bl Slonecker,a
pediatrician and good Inend. has stressed the
importnce of parents taking charge right

Inside her cage, she looked
terrified, and I'm not sure she
even recognized us after her
stressful journey. We rushed her
to our hotel room on the eighth
floor of the big hotel near the air-
port, and I immediately opened
up her cage door. She ran into
the room into a panic, right into
the bathroom, and dived into a
hole under the sink a hole that
led to the whole innards of this


giant hotel. Bucko, an animal
person with many years of expe-

reacted quickly. He grabbed her

'Uphill battle' to save church foi

ALICE WALSH ; .. .
News-Leade .. .. .. .


The little town of Yulee has
never had a museum of its own to
serve as a repository of its rich his-
tory. In order to address that need,
a group of Yulee citizens met on
Oct. 3, 1998, and formed the Yulee
Historic Council.
Its stated purpose was to create
in the community of Yulee a park
that would include a museum pro-
filing Yulee, whose claim to fame is
that it is the birthplace of the
Florida railroad.
Plans include a recreation area
with hiking, biking and horseback
trails, a picnic area, children's play-
ground, adequate parking, rest-
room facilities and the preserva-
tion of native plants. Visitors will be
able to walk down the historic rail
bed, donated by Rayonier, stroll the
wooden boardwalk and view
untouched wetlands at the 5-acre.
park, to be located off A1A west of
the U.S. Post Office in Yulee.
The focal point of the park is to
be a museum recognizing the con-
tribution of David Levy Yulee, who
completed the railroad from
Fernandina to Cedar Key in 1861
and for whom the community was
named. It would also recognize
John Muir, the well-known
American naturalist, who walked
the railroad from the Atlantic Ocean
to the Gulf of Mexico in 1867. Local
military men who gave their lives in
service to our country will also be
honored.
"Yulee developed when people
moved here, mostly from the

North, and settled around the new
railroad," said Mary Lou Tucker,
president of the council. "Without
the railroad, there would not have
been a place called Yulee."
Hart's Road, which ran from
Jacksonville to Yulee, intersected
with the new Florida railroad and a
platted community sprang up. The
name of the settlement, "Harts
Road," was changed to Yulee in
1893 to honor the railroad's
founder. Yulee was able to use his
personal magnetism to convince
Fernandina's citizens to move their
entire town half a mile south over
the marsh to facilitate the route of
the new railroad. And as Florida's


first U.S. Senator, Yulee was instru-
mental in structuring statehood for
Florida.
"We found property for a park,"
said Tucker. "I spoke everywhere
to find funds to purchase the prop-
erty, including the state delegation.
Funds were to come from a land
violation fine, and the project had to
be an ecological 6ne, so we met
with a DEP (Department of
Environmental Protection) repre-
sentative to see if the park proper-
ty qualified as an ecological project.
It did, and the county purchased
the property."
In an agreement between the
council and Nassau County, the


county will own the park property
and its permanent fixtures, and the
council will contract with the
Nassau County Comnmssioners to
manage the museum. All exhibits
will be owned by, or on loan to, the
council and/or the county.
Plans for housing the museum
are still pending. For some time

NAMI helps cope with mental disorders


V HELPING OTHERS


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Everyone's mental health varies
from time to time, and for most of
us it is just a temporary case of
"the blues," anxiety or mild depres-
sion. But when symptoms are so
severe and enduring that they dis-
rupt one's life, this may indicate a
mental disorder.
The local chapter of the
National Alliance for the Mentally
Ill is here to help those who either
suffer from mental illness them-
selves or have a loved one who
does. The organization offers
weekly and monthly professional-
ly facilitated support groups, and
has an office at the Peck Center
with a telephone line and resource
information,. a dental program to
provide funding for emergency
dental treatment and limited fund-
ing for emergency psychiatric med-
'ication.
Each December, NAMI pro-
vides gifts to the clients of the
community drop-in centers and the
weekly NAMI support group, and
makes a monetary donation on
behalf of the patients at the
Northeast Florida State Hospital.
To help sponsor these services
and also to inform the public, the
local NAMI holds an annual com-
munity awareness and fund-rais-
ing dinner each October. This year
it was held at the Woman's Club of
Fernandina Beach on Oct. 7.

Delaney and the Woman's Club.
As featured speaker, NAMI
Nassau County President Lisa
Mohn described the major types of
mental illness and their, symptoms.
"The most common affliction is
clinical depression," she said. "It is.
caused by a chemical imbalance, is
prolonged and may not abate with-
out treatment But the good news*
is that 75 percent of patients
respond to treatment."
Mohn also said that many
homeless were found to be suffer-


ing from schizophrenia. She also
listed the symptoms of bipolar dis-
order, obsessive/compulsive dis-
order, panic/anxiety attacks' and
other common mental illnesses.
Early, identification and treat-
ment is of vital importance; by get-
ting people the treatment they-
need early, recovery is accelerated
and the brain is protected from fur-
ther harm related to the course of
illness.
NAMI holds support meetings
for. people diagnosed with an ill-
ness on Fridays at 11 a.m. at the


Council on Aging. Family support
meetings are held on the fourth
Thursday of the month (except
November and December) at St.
Peter's Episcopal Church on,
Atlantic Avenue at 7 p.m. BusinessI
meetings are held on the third
Thursday of the month at First

Support group


for mental health


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
'ITo paraphrase comments
from our consumers," said Rose
Mary Jacobs, "this is the only
weekly support group in Nassau
County that provides a safe, struc-
tured and confidential environ-
ment for the unique needs of the
mental health community."
Jacobs was speaking of NAMI,
or the National Alliance for the
Mentally Ill, Nassau Affiliate,
where she and fellow retired psy-
chiatric nurse Barbara Bruchman
facilitate a weekly consumer sup-
: port group for citizens dealing
with.mental health issues.
"We believe that given the
opportunity, consumers benefit
,from the support and under-
standing.. they receive in an
insight-oriented support group,
especially during times of crisis
such as the loss of a loved one,
recent divorce, life-changing
events or the unique problems
associated with long-term men-
tal health issues.",
These positive thoughts are
echoed by Bruchman, who adds,


"I was looking for an opportunity :
to volunteer in a way where. I j
could use my past psychiatric ,
nursing skills. I learned of the i
need for a group like ours after i
attending a NAMI board meet- /
ing."
Both women appreciate the
opportunity to help individuals
with mental health issues to come
together to offer support to each
other in a caring, compassionate
and confidential environment.
"With weekly structured meet-
ings," said Bruchman, "Each per-
son has a change to voice their >
feelings." )
In nominating Bruchman and I
Jacobs, NAMI Board member I
Nancy Phillips said, "Anyone who f
volunteers their time, year after .
year should be commended," ,
The consumer support group
meets at 11a.m. on Fridays atthe I

from Baptist Medical Center

Dispatcher resigns


after drug
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A Nassau County Sheriff's
Office 911 dispatcher has resigned
after being the target of a drug
investigation, but he will not face
criminal charges.
Stacy B. Henderson ofYulee was
offered the option of either resign-
ing or being fired Friday. He chose
to submit his resignation, which
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves accepted, according to
a sheriffs press release.
Seagraves said Henderson had
been the target of an undercover
drug investigation for about a


probe
month, ever since a confidential
informant made allegations that
Henderson was selling prescription
painkillers.
Seagraves said a confidential
informant was working to purchase
the drugs from Henderson, but he
never actually sold the drugs to the
informant

Teen guilty of role in murder


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
One of two Jacksonville teens
accused in the Oct 23, 2004, mur-
der of a Kings Ferry girl pleaded
guilty Thursday to accessory to
first-degree murder after the fact.
Leevon Jay Jackson, 17, will
be released from jail within a
month.
Jackson will testify against his
cousin and co-defendant, Donta
Alexis Long, 17, who is charged
with the murder of Sheryl
Johnson, 17, and grand theft of a
motor vehicle.
"Basically, after getting some
of the forensic evidence back ...
all the physical evidence leads to
(Long)," said Assistant State


Attorney "Doc"
Burgess. Long
and Jackson had
each accused the
other of murder-
ing Johnson, who
was shot execu-
tion-style in her
Jackson bedroom at her
parent's home at
47214 Middle
Road in the Kings Ferry commu-
nity.
Jackson was sentenced to one
year in the Nassau County Jail with
credit for time served; he has been
in custody since Nov. 3, 2004. He
will serve two years of communi-
ty control after his release, said
Burgess.
During that time Jackson will


participate in the Inside/Outside
program in Jacksonville, which
assists recently released juvenile
offenders, and live in a transition-
al residential home provided by
the program.
Jackson's attorney, Brian D.
-Morrissey, said Jackson is "satis-
fied" with the outcome of his case.
"From the outset, he has
denied (involvement)," Morrissey
said.
Johnson was found dead,
wrapped in a blanket in her bed-
room, by her grandmother, Marcia
Johnson, about 10:30 p.m. She died
of a gunshot wound to the head.
Marcia Johnson's car, a 1995
Pontiac Grand Prix, was stolen
from the home.
Marcia Johnson was staying


with her granddaughter while the
girl's father, Randy, was in a
Jacksonville hospital for open-heart
surgery and her mother, Mary,
was with him.
Long was arrested a short time
later in Jacksonville, driving the
stolen vehicle. Jackson was arrest-
ed a few days later, on Nov. 3.
Burgess said Johnson's family
understood the decision to allow a
plea agreement for Jackson.
"Of course they would like
both of them to go (to prison),
but I sat them down and explained
to them the situation," Burgess
said.
Long is currently being held at
a juvenile detention center in
Jacksonville, awaiting trial.

Rescue workers will stay behind during hurricane


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Although the devastation caused
by Hurricane Katrina in August has
grabbed headlines around the
world, local law enforcement and
fire rescue personnel say they have
been double-checking their emer-
gency procedures since the 2004
hurricane season that brought four
storms into Florida.
"I think every coastal commu-
nity is going to review their evacu-
ation plans," said Fernandina Beach
Fire-Rescue Chief Danny Leeper.
"I think that process started last
year.",
Local officials have said some
of the problems that plagued the
Gulf Coast before, during and after
Hurricane Katrina people failing
to evacuate, communication and
leadership problems and crime -
will not happen in Nassau County in
the event of a major hurricane.
In interviews earlier this month,
both Leeper and Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
expressed concerns about the
county's substandard radio system.


"I do think there is a safety con-
cern ... with the system that we cur-
rently operate under," Seagraves
said. "And any kind of weather
problems are going to change it to
where it's even riskier than it is
today."
But the Nassau County
Commissioners recently approved
the purchase of a new radio sys-
tem for the county, and officials say
they have backup communications
systems available through other'
law enforcement agencies and fire
departments.
In the event of a major hurri-
cane headed toward Nassau
County, one of the major functions
of local fire and police agencies is
evacuation. Firefighters, deputies
and police officers will work with
other emergency personnel and
media outlets to inform the public
of the danger and facilitate a
smooth evacuation.
The last time a large number of
residents evacuated Nassau County
was in 1999, when Hurricane Floyd
threatened to hit Northeast Florida.
People waited in traffic for hours on
A1A heading west while the east-

bound lanes of A1A were empty.
Now, officials say, evacuees will be
able to use all four lanes of A1A to
leave the county if necessary.
Still, officials urge residents to
leave as early as possible in an evac-
uation.
"I'm hoping people are watching
what happened over (in Texas dur-
ing evacuations- for Hurricane
Rita)," Seagraves said. "When they
call for an .evacuation, you need to
leave, and I hope that people will
leave early instead of trying to wait
until the last minute."
And police officers may tell res-
idents just that, in person, during an
actual evacuation. In addition to
media outlets, local law enforce-
ment personnel will go from neigh-
borhood to neighborhood, door to
door if necessary, to spread the
word.
"We will go door to door if we
have to," said retiring Fernandina
Beach Police Chief Chip
Hammond, who added that special
efforts will be made to communi-


cate with residents who do not
speak English, as well as other pop-
ulations with special needs.
Law enforcement personnel also
will be stationed at hurricane
shelters for security during the
storm and assist with rescue efforts
and provide security after the
storm.
When the time comes and offi-
cials insist it's a matter of when,
not if- police officers, firefighters,
deputies and paramedics will not
be allowed to call in sick, and they
won't be evacuating with their fam-
ilies.
Hammond said some officers
may leave Amelia Island to perform
other, hurricane-related duties, but
many officers will ride out the
storm at the FBPD headquarters
on Lime Street
"We're not going to run from
our city," said Hammond. "I worked
real hard to find (a building for
FBPD headquarters) that was on
one of the highest elevations on
the island ... it's pretty safe."

Seagraves echoed that senti-
ment
"We don't allow sworn officers
to evacuate," he said. "I'll give them
time to get their home business
taken care of so they can focus their
attention on providing for the safe-
ty of the community.
"We don't leave. We're going to
be here before the storm, during
the storm and after the storm."
After Hurricane Katrina, crime
skyrocketed in New Orleans a
development local law enforcement
officials say did not escape their
attention, but Seagraves said he
doesn't think Nassau County would
have that level of crime following a
major disaster.
"Every situation and every com-
munity is different," he said. "I'm


not sure we would have as much of
a problem here as they had in New
Orleans."
Nevertheless, he said local law
enforcement personnel are pre-
pared for the worst during all
aspects of dealing with a major hur-
ricane. He said a history of helping
other Florida counties through hur-
ricanes has given Nassau County
police and firefighters a keen
awareness of what will be neces-
sary.
"We've been through so much
with other counties, we've all had
the opportunity to listen, see and
know how to react," he said. ...
We're going to help (the public).
That's our job, we're going to lend
assistance to everybody."

Man arrested for rape


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
An Amelia Island man was
arrested Thursday in connection
with a rape that reportedly
occurred Oct. 9.
Silberio Reyes Chavarria, 38,
32139 Grand Parke Blvd., is facing
a charge of sexual battery for
allegedly raping a 29-year-old
acquaintance.
According to the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office, the vic-
tim and the suspect were at a party
together on Oct 9 when witness-
es saw Chavarria grab the victim
by the back of the neck and
forcibly kiss her on the mouth.


Chavarria


Witnesses said
"the kiss
appeared to be
unwanted and
that the victim
pushed
(Chavarria)
away," accord-
ing to an arrest
affidavit.
The victim


left the party a short time later
and Chavarria reportedly offered
to walk her home. When they
went into a wooded area near
Gateway to Amelia, Chavarria
reportedly pushed her to the
ground and raped her, then told
her not to tell anyone and threat-


ened that he "knew where she
lived," the report said.
The victim underwent a sexu-
al assault exam the following day
and the results were "consistent
with ... sexual assault"
Investigators interviewed
Chavarria on Thursday and he
reportedly denied having any sex-
ual activity with the victim until
he was "confronted with (the)
physical finding inconsistent with
his statement," and he then admit-
ted having sex with the victim but
said it was consensual.
Chavarria was arrested and has
since been released from the
Nassau County Jail on $250,002
bond.

his money. When he didn't coop-
erate the suspect reportedly ran

Our area of Loffton Creek was too small to be a river, too big to be
a creek ... so we dubbed it "Criver." The boys and I decided to
rebuild the dock at the base of our bluff and discovered an old
wrecked car. We had to get it out and the area cleaned of other
trash. These woods were someone's dumping grounds.

These nature photos were
snapped by Fernandina
Beach resident Don Lay
about 10:45 a.m. Oct. 10
along Egans Creek Greenway
behind the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center. "I walk
there several times a week,
taking pictures," said Lay.
The butterflies include the
"Gulf Fritillary" (Agiraulis
Vanillae), of which there are
many because of the wildflow-
ers along the walking paths.
The light brown/bluish dou-
ble-tailed butterfly is a "Long-
Tailed Skipper."
The adult and baby gators
were in an algae-covered
pond approximately 1/4 mile
south of the the recreation
center on the east side of the
walking path.
Lay uses a Panasonic
Lumix DMC-FZ20 digital
camera and hopes soon to
display his images in a local
gallery.

Shockley


ornot,


Georgia


is better
ator fans excited
about the possibility
.'" of injured University
-,...- of Georgia QB D.J.
Shockley missing Saturday's
cocktail party in Jacksonville
should think their giddiness-
through a bit Because the last
time I checked, an opposing
quarterback had no impact on
a team's offensive perform-
ance.
I spent a good portion of
Sunday afternoon surfing the
various Florida football
Internet message boards and
wLas taken aback by the many
Gators who suddenly believe
their team has a chance to beat
Georgia now that Shockley
isn't expected to suit up.
But word has it that
Shockley had no plans to
break down film on Florida's
paltry spread option offense
anyway. He was reportedly
going to roll the dice and leave
that up to the defensive guys
who usually do it.
Sarcasm aside, Florida
should have a pretty good shot
at slowing down Georgia with
or without Shockley. But the
Bulldogs don't suddenly
become inept just because he's
not in there.
Running backs Thomas
Brown and Danny Ware and
TE Leonard Pope aren't off in
a corner whimpering at the
thought of Shockley's impend-
ing absence In fact. I bet
they're licking their chops at
the mere thought of getting a
bigger piece of the offensive
pie.
Bottom line. Georgia has
playmakers to burn.
Of course, Shockley is the
Bulldogs' best player. Of
course, they would rather have
him under center than Joe
Tereshinski 11. And sure.
Florida's defense will have
more of a chance to be suc-
cessful without Shockley in the
shotgun.
But good teanis have good
players. And a lot of them.
Itf the Gators manage to pull
out a victory, it will be
because: ai The Gator defense
continued its solid play; and b)
Floiida head coach Urban
Never realized that a decent
high school tean could stop
the version of the spread he
has been running and threw in
a new wrinkle that actually
produced points.
Not because Georgia's
starting quarterback didn't
play.
Don't get me wrong:
Shockley is a much better
quarterback than I expected
and undoubtedly a valuable
leader whom Georgia Mill
eventually need back to win
the SEC title and possibly
more.
But good teams rally
around misfortunes and find a
way to win. And Georgia is a
very good team...,
On a side note, even if
Shockley is deemed healthy
enough. do you play him if
he's not 100 percent? Logic
says you don't. ,
Say Shockley re-aggravates
the knee and Georgia loses the'
game. All of the sudden the
Bulldogs have just a one-game
cushion in the SEC East with
Auburn still to play and no
Shockley. If I'm head coach
Mark Richt. I take my chances
and run a conservative offense
against a Florida team that
hasn't proven to be a legiti-
mate offensive threat. If he
wins, bonus. If he loses, at
least he has a healthy
Shockley for the remainder of
the season.
Because let's face it, while
the outcome of the World's
Largest Outdoor Cocktail
Party means everything to
Florida and Georgia fans, the
elusive SEC Championship -
probably means a little more to
head coach Mark Richt...
SOh yeah. my prediction. I'll
take Georgia 17-10 in a defen-
sive dandy.

Pirates surrender to Lee Generals 28-7


BETH JONES
M,'.s Leader
The visiting Generals scored three touchdowns
Friday night before the Pirate; could answer with a

Fernandina Beach 28-7 in the Pirates' home finale.
"It was a tough loss for us." FBHS Coach Ed

lone TD for the home team. Winston Overton kicked
the PAT.

left in the game when Blanks punched it in from 12
yards out for the TD. Alvarado's PAT attempt was
successful as Lee took a 28-7 lead. The Generals
rolled to 6-2 overall and 3-1 in the district.
James Southers was the Pirates' leading rusher
with 53 yards on 10 carries. Andre Johnson had 18
yards on a trio of runs and Terrell Dallas has 17 yards
on three carries. Simon Wolfe lined up at fullback
and had 6 yards on a pair of carries. Crocker had
four carries for a yard.

a 73-yard TD reception. Marcus Johnson reeled in
two passes for 20 yards. DeAndre Perkins had one for
15 yards. Josh Longnecker had one for six, and Dallas

quarter before the flood gates opened and Nease lit
up the scoreboard.

29 .;ards on 13 carries and Spencer Soward had four
for 10.

Peters tackles Ironman;:


places ninth in age group


Local- Ironman triathlete and coach
Michael Peters competed in the Ironman
Triathlon World Championship in Kailua-
Kona. Hawaii, on Oct. 15.
Each year, more than 50,000 athletes
from more than 50 countries attempt to qual-
ify for the world's most famous one-day
endurance event, which consists of a 2.4-
mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile
run (marathon).
Peters qualified by placing ninth out of
348 competitors in his age group at Ironman
Arizona in Tempe, Ariz., on April 9.
Racing against an elite field of 1,743 pro-
fessional and amateur athletes in Hawaii,
Peters finished the event in a personal best
time of hours 55 minutes and 17 seconds,
which placed him among the top 20 percent
of finishers. Peters completed the 2.4-mile
swim in 1:14:47, then rode an average of
22.4 miles per hour to finish the bike seg-
ment in 4:59:57. He completed the race by
running the marathon in 3:32:16.
"I really increased the volume and inten-
sity of my training this year, beginning with
a.two-week camp in Australia in January,"
' Peters said. "I1 knew coming into the race that
my fitness was very good, having placed
second in my age group at the Hammerhead
Olympic Triathlon at Camp Blanding in
August and first in my age group at the
Disney International Triathlon at Walt
Disney World in September."
.Relatively calm winds and improved fit-
ness enabled Peters to cut more than 50
mintites off his finish time from last year.
"This was a perfect day for me," he said.
"I had my best race to date on the sport's
biggest stage and topped it off by having
my wife, Karen, and daughters Lindsay and
Lauren join me as I crossed the finish line.

family for all their support during my long
hours of training and all of my training par t-

One of the big faults that the
amateur golfer finds is when
they hit a shot into trouble. A
professional can find a way to
escape disaster, but the gen-
eral rule for an amateur Is that
trouble leads to more trouble.
The one shot that causes the
amateur the most trouble is
when a tee shot goes into the woods.
We're so mad when our shot is out of the
fairway and in a tree that it usually leads to
a second erratic shot, Consequently, most
people race up to find the shot, just grab a
club and hack away. Instead, a more sen-
sible. plan. is the best course of action.
Picking the right club with the proper loft is
essential. Too much loft could lead to your
shot going into the overhanging leaves.
Not enough loft will result in the ball getting
hung up in the woods again.

OUTDOORS


Ray Conner,

moved from
Jacksonville
to Crystal
River some
five years ago
and fell in
love with
grouper fish-
ing. Right,
some of the
best fishing
in the Crystal
River and

of Mexico
comes dur-
ing a flooding
tide.

OUTDOOR BRIEFS


Crystal Ri\

Tr he falling tide exposed several sandbars in
a narrow feeder at the mouth of Crystal
River. Egrets perched high in nearby
palms watched for feeding opportunities,
as the falling tide gathered schooling baitfish in the
many shallow feeder mouths.
The water was crystal clear, allowing both my
son, Terry David, and me to see a variety of marine
life as we slowly navigated up the feeder creek.
"Dad, that looks like a
.? school of largemouth bass
.. holding in that deep slough,"
Terry David said.
Without hesitation, he cast
his root beer-colored Cotee jig
!:: into the slough where a two-
pound largemouth bass quick-
ly intercepted his lure. A quick
hook-set found the two-pound
Terry Lacoss bass jumping head over heels
in hopes of dislodging the jig
.... hook. The sharp Cotee jig kept
S OUTDOORS its bite in the bass's mouth and
was soon released back into
Sthe clear waters of the Crystal River feeder creek.
Several more largemouth bass, weighing to two
pounds, and redfish, weighing to five pounds, were
caught and released from the winding stream
before we motored back out into the Crystal River.
A second nearby feeder creek produced about
the same action during the first of the incoming
tide. Obviously, the best time to fish these feeders
was during the last of the falling and the first of the
incoming tides when creek fish were holding in
deep sloughs next to sandbars and creek mouths.
Earlier that morning, we fished just south of the
mouth of Crystal River and just offshore of
Greymore Pass and Mangrove Point. A falling tide
gathered schools of sea trout in sand holes where
area fishermen anchored and drifted the grass
flats.
We switched to Berkley "Gulp" plastics and
worked them with 1/8-ounce Cotee jig heads.
Every cast into a sand hole produced at least a
strike and, in most cases, a head-shaking sea trout
weighing to three pounds!
\\e- would have liked a high tide that morning so
that we could have fished in close to the islands,
passes and mangroves for redfish, however our
boat drew too much water for this style of skinny
water fishing. But, we were not complaining; the
sea tru u t action was very exciting!
Later that afternoon, we returned to Fort Island
Trails public boat ramp. While loading our bay boat
onto the trailer, we talked with a grouper fisherman
that was all smiles over his day of fishing in the
Gulf of Mexico.
"I had a heck of a day grouper fishing," Ray
Conner of Crystal River said. "I don't like fishing by
my self, but the grouper fishing has been so good
thk fall. that I have been going anyway."
Conner had that look, waiting for tus to ask himn
to show us his catch! s -'

Oyster points offer excellent fishing for a vari-
ety of saltwater species, including mangrove
snapper.

grabbed a freshly caught 30-inch grouper, which
was followed by four more measuring at least 24
inches in length.
"I used to live in Jacksonville, where I had to
fish from 15-30 miles offshore to catch grouper and
in many cases the ocean was rough," Conner said.
"After moving to Crystal River and finding grouper
within five miles from shore, I had found a new love
for grouper fishing."
Some of the best grouped fishing from the
mouth of Crystal River comes from 4-5 miles off-
,shore in 20-24 feet of water where rock ledges cre-
ate a hole. Anchoring is the best fishing tactic for
grouper while fishing with live pinfish that are
caught with small pieces of squid.
"I thought I would have a hard time finding
these grouper holes and ledges, but they were
actually easy to find by using my boat's fish finder,"
Conner said. "I now have several grouper holes
logged into my GPS and often come back to the
boat ramp with my Florida state limit of five
grouper."
Capt. Glen Touchton of Crysial River guides for
sea trout and redfish using a unique custom 20-foot
backwater skiff that draws only four inches of
water.
"My boat is custom built here in Crystal River
for this particular style of skinny water fishing for
reds and trout," Touchton said. '"The shallow draft
helps me fish in some of the areas during low tide
where most boats can't get to."
Touchton guides all year for specks and reds
while using two major fishing patterns.
"For redfish, I catch my own pinfish with a trap,"
Touchton said. "However for sea trout I will use a
Cajun Rattler float and fish a three-inch love lure
under it. When this combination is cast into a
school of sea trout, a strike is soon to follow. On
good days, my customers will catch from 50-100
sea trout!"
To book a guided fishing charter with Capt
Touchton, call (352) 422-6838. For charts, fishing
tackle, boat slips and general information, call the

Licenses for seniors
'Leaders at the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission say they will not
recommend requiring seniors to
pay for fishing and hunting
licenses.
"Florida's seniors are among
the FWC's most valued partners.
Many of them support our fish


and wildlife conservation efforts
by donating their time and con-
tributing money by voluntarily
purchasing licenses," FWC
Executive Director Ken Haddad
said. "We appreciate their efforts
and their continued support. We
have no intention of placing an
undue burden on seniors who
can't afford to pay."
In an effort to plan proactively
for fish and wildlife conservation
programs, FWC began develop-
ing a business plan to ensure the
financial stability of its programs
for the next five years.
Throughout this process, the
agency has been exploring all
possible solutions and has
worked with Floridians to get
their perspectives on how to deal
with funding shortfalls.

A large portion of FWC's
budget comes from user fees,
primarily licenses, permits and
specialty license plate fees. One
of the suggestions the FWC
received was to consider repeal-
ing the senior exemption,
because federal-matching dollars
are, in part, tied to the number of
paid license holders.
"That federal funding is
important, but we believe we can
come up with a creative solution
that will enable us to capture
those dollars without having to
charge seniors directly," Haddad
said.
Haddad added that the
agency will continue working
with residents to ensure Florida's
fish and wildlife conservation
programs remain financially sta-
ble.
The FWC does not plan to
submit any exemption or fee
increase proposals during the
2006 legislative session.

-In addition to having a hunt-
ing license, a migratory bird per-
mit is also required to take
migratory game birds in Florida.
In order to receive this permit,
hunters have to fill out a short
questionnaire when they pur-
chase their hunting license. The
information they provide helps
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service get a better assessment
on how many birds are harvest-


ed each year.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission sug-
gests hunters peruse the "2005-6
Migratory Bird Regulations"
brochures and the "2005-6
Florida Hunting Regulations"
handbook at MyFWC.com/hunt-
ing. These publications also are
available from county tax collec-
tors' offices and license agents.

Bassmasters meet

ated with the BASS National
Federation and the Florida BASS
Federation, and meetings are
held the third Thursday of the

Youth hunting program
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is
seeking partners to help launch
its new Youth Hunting Program.
The program aims to provide ,
quality hunting experiences for
12- to 17-year-olds to increase the
number of youths involved in
hunting.
The FWC is looking for


HIGHWAY A1A YULEE (904) 277-6969


landowners and/or hunting
clubs to host weekend youth
hunts; volunteers to be trained as
huntmasters, hunter safety
instructors, cooks or guides; and
organizations to help sponsor
this new program.
Because the nutiber of
hunters in Florida has declined
during the past decade, the FWC
is looking to establish relation-
ships with other concerned con-
servation organizations to use
this program as a tool to recruit
and train tomorrow's safe
hunters, The Shikar Safari Club
already has partnered with the
FWC and is providing the fund-
ing for initial start-up costs, but
the program is going to require
substantially more assistance if it
is to be successful.
While introducing Florida's
youth to the hunting tradition,
the Youth Hunting Program can
benefit landowners by assisting
them with their wildlife manage-
ment practices by helping them
reduce does, hogs and other
species the biologists want to
manage on their property. All the
landowners or hunting clubs
need to do is provide access to
their land, and.the FWC will do
the rest.
"We promise to run safe, posi-
tive, educational and mentored
youth hunts and are looking for
all types of year-round hunting
opportunities including deer,
turkey, hogs, exotics, dove, small
game and waterfowl," said Alan
Busenbark, FWC's hunter safety
business manager.
"The goal for the first year of
the program is to train at least 25
volunteers throughout the state
to be huntmasters to lead future
youth-training hunts. Along with
enlisting these volunteers, anoth-
er goal is to establish landowner
relationships and secure addi-
tional funding to ensure the
future growth of the program,"
Busenbark said.
If you are a landowner or
hunting club wishing to donate a
weekend youth hunt on your
property, an individual who can
volunteer your time and expert-
ise in planning and leading youth
hunts or an organization who can
help sponsor this unique pro-
gram, contact Alan Busenbark at
(850) 413-0084 or by e-mail at
alan.busenbark@MyFWC.com.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2005
NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


Morning or night question is key to harmonious relationships


People seem to fall into two
distinctive categories.
There are morning peo-
ple and there are night
people. I don't think there are
middle-of-the-day people.
When a husband and wife or
good friends end up being a mix
- some night and some morning,
it may create problems.
At our house, morning people
rule. We even have morning
dogs. Big Guy and I start our
days early. Hot coffee, the morn-
ing paper and CNN are essential.
We have to work hard not to
interrupt each other. It is a differ-
ent story at the end of the day.
Come evening, we settle into a
quieter pace and usually do not


make it
much past
9 p.m.
Some con-
A sider the
bewitching
J hour mid-
night not
S' at our
house. It is
comes
much earli-
DickieAnderson er closer
to 10 p.m.
Morn-
FROM THE ing people
PORCH wake up
talking and
are full of energy for the coming
day. They are ready for walks and


exercise and reading the newspa-
per front to back. Night people
who have to get up in the morn-
ing do not speak and if they do it
usually is in short unpleasant
bursts. Best advice? Stay away.
We all know night people.
Young people tend to be night
people. They peak at midnight
and wonder why the morning
people have gone to bed. For
morning people the day ends at 9
p.m. For night people it is the
beginning of the evening. After
sunset morning people begin
their downhill slide while night
people begin to bloom the darker
it gets. As night people gain their
advantage, the roles are soon
reversed and vengeance is theirs.


Their companions who started
the day in high gear are now
unresponsive and struggle to stay
awake.
Internet dating services have
lengthy questionnaires designed
to determine a couple's potential
compatibility. Do they ask the
most important question?
"Are you a morning person or
a night person?"
It can affect the success of a
relationship. If a morning person
attempts to communicate with a
night person too early in the day
it is not a good thing. And if a
night person pushes a morning
person late at night there is hell
to pay.
The windows of opportunity


must be determined early in a
relationship.
If you venture into the red
zone patience is essential.
Creative people are often
asked when they do their best
work. Most artists have very spe-
cific times that they consider opti-
mum for their work. Writers often
claim early morning. There is an
implied Do Not Disturb sign on
their doors as they spill their
most creative thoughts onto
paper. How do you recognize a
productive writer? They are still
in their pj's at noon.
Trust me I know.
Dickie Anderson welcomes
your comments at dickiemm@

Presidential speaker
Dr. Max Williams presents "The Evolution of the American
Presidency: A Late 20th Century Perspective," a lecture spon-
sored by NICE, the Nassau Institute for Community Education
on Oct 8 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church. Williams, professor
emeritus of history at Western Carolina University, spoke about
the development of the American presidency from the 1780's
to the present and examined the character and personality of
several commanders-in-chief. George Washington "was a man
who gave up power. And this in itself was unique," he said.
Early presidents returned to their previous occupations when
they completed their service. Today, "We live in a time of pro-
fessional politicians," Williams said. To be added to the mailing
list for a NICE fall semester schedule of classes, beginning in
February, call 491-4926.

This handsome guy is
Charlie. He is a Springer
Spaniel that Nassau County
Animal Care and Control
estimates to be about one
year old. He is a medium-
sized dog with lots of spunk.
As you see, it took two peo-
ple to hold him still for the
picture. He likes to jump up
and down when you walk by
his run and would make a
great Frisbee dog.
This mom came in with
her four babies and now
they need homes of their
own. The mom is a pretty

orange), while three of her
babies are black with white
hair; the other two are a gray

'\EDNESDA', OCTOBER 26. 2005 News-Leader


Big Brothers Big Sisters


builds mentoring partnership


For the News Leader
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
Nassau County has created a
dynamic mentoring partnership
with Fernandina Beach High
School and PrYme Time, YMCA.
The new mentoring initiative
matches participants of the
National Honor Society, Interact
Club and the Student Government
from local high schools with ele-
mentary school students partici-
pating in PrYme Time's after-school


care program.
The pairings or "matches" will
work on educational and socializa-
tion skills designed to improve the
elementary child's overall future. In
addition, the teenagers have the
opportunity to see first-hand how
transforming community involve-
ment is to individual participants.
Recognizing that mentoring can
dramatically improve a child's edu-
cational experience, Big Brothers
Big Sisters is actively pursuing
opportunities in Nassau County to


provide mentors to "at-risk" chil-
dren. A recent Florida State
University study reflects that 95
percent of children involved in a
mentoring relationship are pro-
moted to the next level and improve
in attendance. In addition. 93 per-
cent have better attitudes towards
teachers and peers. "Mentoring is
one of the most powerful experi-
ences that you can offer a child or
volunteer." says Warren Grymes,
CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of
Nassau County.


Operation Teddy Bear under way in Nassau County


One of the most comforting
things a scared child can do is hug
a big, cuddly teddy bear. Fernan-
dina Beach Rotary Club has joined
together with other Florida Rotary
Clubs to take part in Operation
Teddy Bear, a program designed to
give children affected by Hurricane
Katrina a sense of normalcy during
a catastrophic time.
Operation Teddy Bear, is col-
lecting stuffed animals, toys,
games, books, cards, crayons and
other items for kids of all ages.
These items, which volunteers .will
load onto trucks and deliver to the
distressed areas, are meant to bring
comfort to children whose worlds


have been turned upside down by
Hurricane Katrina.
"This program was created to
put a smile on a child's face in the
midst of a great deal of discom-
fort," said Marlyne Clark, Nassau
County coordinator for Operation
Teddy Bear. ".Many kids have lost
familiar possessions, and these
donations may help brighten a
child's day."
Operation Teddy Bear dona-
tions may be dropped off at the fol-
lowing locations: Nassau County
Sheriff's Office (76001 Bobby
Moore Circle, Yulee); Amelia Trace
Assisted LI.ing (1900 Amelia Trace
Circle); '.. TLC Consignment

Hufenbecher's home (1276
Quattlefield Lane); Amelia Island
Animal Hospital (1470 S. Eighth
St.); Atlantic Coast Federal (715
Centre St.); and all Fernandina
Beach fire departments.
To donate cash for fuel and
delivery costs, mail a check to

If you shop around for a home equity loan or line of credit, you'll
find that a lot of low advertised rates don't look as good when you read the -?
fine print. At VyStar, the more you read, the better it gets. That's because our "-.
rate is not a teaser rate just to get you in the door and it doesn't go up based
on your credit. There are no hidden costs, annual fees or pre-payment penalties ':'.
that change the true cost of the loan to you. In fact, we'll even pay your closing
costs on lines of $10,000 to $125,000. We adjust our best rate monthly to keep it "
a half a percent below the prime rate as reported by the Wall Street Journal's
Money Rate section and is current as of October 7, 2005. Of course, there are .
always limitations and restrictions, such as basic credit approval, the appraised value '
of your home and the amount of money you want to borrow. But in the end, you'll
find that our low rates just keep getting better, the more you know. For example, you
can get our best rate on up to 80% of the value of your home, less the first mortgage
balance, if it's your primary residence. Other loan to value rates are equally attractive and
again, aren't encumbered by hidden charges and early payoff fees. Visit a branch or call us
for details and learn why we are the leader in home equity loans and lines of credit.
