Fire spread Friday through the'

Local merchants ring in Black Friday

"Wonderful."
One word from Kristina Smith,
assistant manager at the
Fernandina Beach Wal-Mart,
seemed to sum up Black Friday
for area merchants.
So-called because traditionally
it's when U.S. retailers go from the
red into the black, the day after
Thanksgiving begins a period that
accounts for almost a quarter of
their annual sales, according to a
Bloomberg report.
The Washington-based National
Retail Federation estimates those
sales will total $439.5 billion for
November and December. And it
predicts electronics such as flat-
panel TVs, Apple IPods and
Microsoft Xbox video-game con-
soles will be among the most pop-
ular gifts this holiday season.

radios



to cost



$6.8M

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Nassau County will pay almost
$6.8 million to overhaul its public
safety communications system.
The county commission
approved a seven-year loan from
SunTrust Bank Monday to pay $5
million of the total expense. The
remainder will be paid with impact
fees, sales tax money and a small
grant of about $200,000.
"This was an important decision
tonight, because we,-now have a
funding source and can move ahead
with replacing the system," said
county Deputy Fire Chief Sam
Young. "We'll have coverage over
the entire county, and increase our
in-building cover-
age from 45 per-
cent to 95 per-
cent."
Replacing the
communication
system has been
a top priority for
the county since
the current sys- Young
tem has been
deemed danger-
ous and insufficient.
Rescue workers sometimes find
it difficult to hear dispatchers over
the radio, particularly when they
are at opposite ends of the county or
inside buildings.
Nassau County Fire Rescue, the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
Fernandina Beach Police and a pri-
vate consultant have worked since
December 2004, investigating ways
to replace the system and find fund-
ing sources to pay for it.
That effort suffered a setback
in September, when the county
learned it would not receive a large
federal grant to pay for most of the
project.
Young said after that and other
grant proposals fell through, the
county wvas left with no other option
than to secure a loan.
The next step will be to finalize
an agreement with Motorola to set
a start date for the project.
Young estimated the project
would take about eight months, and
told the commission it would have
the new system working by
December 2006.
A finance committee made up
of the clerk of court, county admin-
istrator, county attorney and their
staff was designated to find ways to
fund the project and bid the loan.
County Attorney Mike Mullin
said the loan does not violate the
county commission's policy to never
use non-recurring funds to pay for
recurring expenses.
The remaining $1.8 million will
be paid for as a "down payment"
using a combination of impact fees,
one-cent sales tax revenue and the
$200,000 grant, Mullin said.
The bulk of the loan will then
be paid with some other source,

$65 billion in insured
damage (and probably
over $150 dollars in total
damage), according to

Make sure your home


is properly insulated

ALICE WALSH
News-Leader


Most people living in a
fairly new home
take it for granted
that their insulation
is sufficient. But that may not
be the case, and with overall
energy costs going nowhere but
up, it pays to do a checkup. This
is even more important with
older homes, as minimum rec-
ommendations have changed
over time. Also, insulation tends
to pack down eventually, and
when it does so, its effective-,
ness is greatly diminished.
* Your local utility company
will do an energy audit of your
home at no charge. In this way
you can find out the level of
your insulation as well as any
energy leaks that may be raising
your heating and cooling bills,
Which account for almost half of
the energy, a household uses.
The average American house-
hold spends $1,500 annually on
energy bills, and that number is
expected to go up 50 percent
--this year.
We wrote earlier on the
) importance of sealing leaks
around windows and doors, hav-
ing your furnace checked annu-
ally, etc. All this helps, but you
also need sufficient insulation to
keep Old Man Winter from
stealing in.
The Florida state and local
codes require a minimum of R-
19 in the ceilings of new con-
> struction, and recommends R-3
in walls, although that is not
required. Florida Power and
Light recommends up to R-30 in


ceilings for
a maxi-
mum
.:-' shield, and
many
builders
.-_ are doing
-....-- that Not
all, however, are insulating the
walls to R-3. (R stands for
Resistance.)
If you decide to check out
the insulation yourself, take a
flashlight and ruler into the
attic, and walk carefully, only on
the ceiling joists or floorboards.
You don't want to step through
your ceiling! And if you are
going to be near electric power,
turn off the circuit breaker
before you start.
Figure that about four inches
of glass fiber insulation batts or
blankets is around R-11, six
inches around R-19, eight inches
R-26 and 10 inches, R-30.
If you see rock wool or blan-
kets, roughly three inches of
material is R-11, five inches is R-
19, eight and a half inches is R-
26 and nine inches is R-30.
Loose-fill material is a oIfoi"-'
lar type of insulation poured
onto the attic floor, so if that's
what you have, estimate five
inches to R-11, eight to nine
inches R-19, 12 inches R-26 and
13 or 14 inches will give you
around R-30.
Adequate (or better) insula-
tion will not only save money
this winter and keep you cozy, it
will pay off next summer, also,
with lower electric bills and a
more efficient air conditioning
system.

Museum exhibit
On Dec. 4, the Amelia Island
Museum of History will open a
unique Civil War temporary
exhibit, including the only docu-
ment ever signed by both
Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson
Davis and telling the incredible
story of how this document
came to be.
In 1865, as the Civil War was
coming.to its bloody end, a well-
known Baptist preacher -
Thomas Cox Teasdale set off
from Columbus Mississippi
headed for Richmond. His plan
was to obtain the signatures of
both Davis and Lincoln on a sin-
gle document, allowing him to
sell cotton from Mississippi in
the North and use the profits to
found an orphanage. After
weeks of travel he reached the
starving Confederate capital and
obtained Davis' signature. A
week later, he reached
Washington and managed a
meeting with Lincoln, who also
agreed to his plan and signed.
Ultimately, Teasdale got the
money for the orphanage.
The exhibit explains in detail
the story and allows for inspec-
tion of the document from both
sides. Items relating to the Civil
War from the museum's collec-
tions, as well as several private
collections, will complete the
exhibit.
The museum is located at
233 S. Third St. in Fernandina
Beach. For information, call 261-
7378.

pletion of the council's second

GLENDA S. JENKINS/NEWS-LEADER
Linda Mixson, shelter manager with the Nassau Humane Society, captures one of five dogs
that lived at 401 S. Seventh St., which caught on fire Friday. One dog died in the fire.


FIRE Continued from 1A
from the house and is keeping
them at the shelter. A fifth dog
died in the fire.
A small lamp was found turned
on in a bedroom inside the home
and Fernandina Beach Fire Rescue
Chief Danny Leeper confirmed
Monday the lamp caused the fire.
"The lamp got bumped over
and fell ... onto the bed and sat
there and smoldered for probably
a long, long time," Leeper said.
Firefighters had to return to
the home about three hours later
after a neighbor reported seeing
smoke inside the house. Leeper
said a leftover ember had reignited,
but was quickly extinguished.
The house sustained fire dam-
age on the second floor and water
damage on the first floor.
Leeper said that with remodel-
ing, the home could be restored.
Neighbors said they repeated-
ly called police and animal control
to investigate care of the dogs and
suspicious activity at the home.
Shelter manager Linda Mixson,
who removed the dogs from the
house on Friday, confirmed
Monday that the Humane Society
had gone "out to the house numer-
ous times" because "the neighbors
did complain."
Although the family had moved
out of the house to Yulee, they
were "visiting the dogs every day
... from what we can gather," she
said. Animal control officers visit-
ed the dogs as recently as "three or
four weeks ago" and did talk to the
family.
'Thliey d haie.omes "1c{i-
ditiqns," Mixson said about the ani-
mals, but they were "not emaciat-
ed and (were) being fed."

selected each budget year.
However, the county will not use
ad valorem taxes, impact fees or
one-cent funds to pay that portion,
Mullin said.
"There are other legally avail-
able funds, such as state, revenue
sharing funds, which you can use to
make debt payments," Mullin said.
"We feel confident we've got the
money to pay for this from all these'
sources."

"I haven't been able to get into
the house," said animal control offi-
cer Gil Mixson. "Each time I went
the occupants would bring the
dogs to me well fed and well taken
care of." Misdemeanor fines are
appropriate in cases in which ani-
mals are neglected and not being
provided food, water and "a clean
living environment," he said.
'We understand the family has
fallen on hard times. We don't fault
them for that," Linda Mixson said.
'The dogs clearly love the fami-
ly."
The Humane Society will not
release the animals to the family
"until they satisfy us with the con-


editions" of "a suitable place" for
the dogs to live, she said.
Monday, Capt. James
Thompson, interim chief of the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department, said no charges will
be filed against the dog owners.
"They were taking care of the
animals on a daily basis,"
Thompson said. 'The Humane
Society has the dogs now and
they've said the dogs were taken
care of and the owners have been
by to spend time with them and
they're paying the fees to keep the
dogs there until they can take
them back."

important that they have a vote
and a say-so in matters concerning
planning and zoning."
In her resignation letter, Adkins
also encouraged the .commission
to allow the school board repre-
sentative to remain a voting mem-
ber.
However, Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham said. Monday he felt
an elected official from another
board should serve in only an ex-
officio capacity.
"It's nothing personal, but poli-
tics can play a role if you're an elect-
ed official from another board," he
said.
Marshall disagreed, and cast the
lone vote against removing the rep-
resentative's voting power.
"If they're going to take the time
to serve on the board and share
their knowledge, they deserve to
have a voice," Marshall said. "They
put in their time, hard work and
due diligence, they deserve that."
Planning board member Ron
Braddock is also an elected member
of the Ocean Highway and Port
Authority. When asked about this
after the meeting, Higginbotham
said the county needs to address


'It's nothing personal, but politics can
play a role ifyou're an elected official
from another board.'
COMMISSIONER JIMB. HIGGINBOTHAM


the issue of elected officials serving
on its boards.
"It hasn't been a problem but
the potential is there," he said.
Marshall also questioned
Higginbotham's choice to appoint
John Stack, however she stressed it
was the District 1 commissioner's
right to recommend whomever he
wanted to the board.
Higginbotham has repeatedly
called for "new blood" to be placed
on county boards. He also voted to
place paid advertisements in local
newspapers earlier this year, which
resulted in several resumes from
local citizens.
Despite these new applicants,
Higginbotham chose to appoint
Stack, a local real estate agent who
already served on the planning
board from 1996 to 2002.
He will join Braddock and Tom
Ford as members of the seven-


member board with real estate busi-
ness interests.
Marshall voted for Stack's
appointment, which was approved 4-
0.
However, she added that she
"liked the idea of receiving resumes
and being able to use them."
Planning board member Sue
Hutchinson's District 2 seat was
also eligible for re-appointment in
December.
Her position was extended 30
days because District 2 Commis-
sioner Acree was out of town and
had yet to indicate her decision.

Johnson said most shoppers
bought toys and electronics -
"those were the biggest things" -
followed closely by housewares,

It was the same story at Kmart
in Fernandina Beach. "It's been
busy," said loss prevention man-
ager Brian Evatt. The store opened
two hours early at 6 a.m., with peo-

Inspectors will conduct a
sweep of pet stores during the
next five weeks to ensure they
comply with regulations that pro-
tect consumers in the purchase
of pets, Charles H. Bronson,
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services commissioner, announ-
ced today.
At the same time, a public serv-
ice announcement informing con-
sumers of their right under the
pet law will begin airing on tele-
vision throughout Florida in mid-
December as holiday shoppers
contemplate the purchase of a pet
for themselves or a family
member. It can be viewed at
www.florida-agriculture.com/
video.htm.
Inspectors are visiting numer-
ous pet stores and dealers
between now and Jan. 1 to make
sure that a store or dealer is com-
plying with Florida Statute 828.29,
a law that imposes certain obli-
gations on sellers and offers
recourse to consumers in the
event that problems arise.
Under the law, dogs and cats
must be at least eight weeks of
age when sold or offered for sale,
and each animal must be accom-
panied by a Florida health certifi-
cate signed by a licensed and
accredited veterinarian within the
past 30 days documenting

required vaccinations, tests and
treatments for parasites.
In addition, the law requires a


dealer to provide a purchaser with
information on the buyer's rights
under the law, which includes the
right to return, exchange or
receive reimbursement for vet-
erinary expenses if any animal is
deemed unfit by a licensed vet-
erinarian within 14 days of pur-
chase.
Aside from making sure that a
dealer is complying with the law,
consumers should also consider
suitability when purchasing an
animal, Bronson said. For exam-
ple, some breeds of dogs may be
less appropriate if there are infants
or young children in a home.
likewise, consumers may want
to think twice before purchasing
large animal if they live in a small
dwelling.
Bronson offered the following
tips to consumers who are con-
sidering or planning to purchase
a dog or cat
Don't buy on impulse.
Research the size and breed of
the animal for suitability with your
lifestyle and circumstance.
Examine the health certifi-
cate that is required to be pre-
sented upon sale for complete-
ness and compliance with the law.
If there is a problem with
your pet after purchase, contact
the seller immediately.
For additional information or
to file a complaint, consumers can
call 1-800-HELPFIA (1-800-435-
7352) or (850) 410-0900.

Marlene Wiles of
Fernandina Beach delights
at finding a bargain while
shopping at Twisted Sisters
on Centre Street during the
annual downtown Pajama
Party and Sale Friday,
above. Clerk Tina
Klingeman stayed busy
ringing up customers' pur-
chases. Beverly Hill of
Fernandina Beach browses
in Books Plus on Centre
Street, right, while her
daughter and grandson,
: Rebecca and Tanner
Bronnum of Lawrenceville,
Ga., take a break from
shopping and enjoy free
refreshments.


Rousing day kicks off


holidays downt


S hoppers in pajamas deco-
rated Centre Street on
Friday morning, the first
and biggest shopping day
of the holiday season. But the
atmosphere was hardly sleepy.
A robust crowd and a mood of
merriment got the holiday retail
season off to a good start in
downtown Fernandina Beach.
Store owners seemed happy with
sales and activity.
Elsewhere around the U.S.,
initial holiday sales came in
stronger than expected. Some
forecasts are for holiday sales to
be the best in five years, due to
falling gas prices, a recovering
economy and low interest rates.
First-day sales were estimated, at
$7.2 billion, up 5 percent from last
year. Wal-Mart, the world's
biggest retailer, posted record
sales on Friday, topping $1.5 bil-
lion at U.S. stores.
The pajamas theme has been a
successful promotion for down-
town merchants here. Shoppers
clad in pajamas get perks such as
give-a-ways and reduced prices.
But the mood downtown is not
always rosy.
Several longtime merchants
have closed their doors amid
increasing competition from pre-
mier chain stores cropping up on
the south end of Amelia Island
and in Yulee. Chico's, Stein Mart
and Pier One (reported to open
soon) are several of the new
mainstream competitors that'
have big names and bigger budg-
ets to market themselves.
The same goes for the local
restaurants in downtown. Bigger


competitors
continue to
crop up on
S the south
end, as well
as off-island.
The arrival of
Applebee's,
the first of the
major restau-
Steve rant chains,
Nicklas signals the
beginning of
.. what's to
STEVE'S come. With
MAn. T each opening
of a restau-
PLACE rant or retail
outlet outside
of downtown, there is potentially
another reason to go elsewhere.
Meanwhile, city officials seem
to provide little impetus. They
have been preoccupied with
infighting, mismanagement and a
hesitation to act.
City officials have laid the
groundwork for the troubled
marina, however. A wooden rail-
ing and seating area has been
constructed, but little else has
changed at the marina amid
ongoing deliberations.
Part of the concern of down-
town merchants seems to be this
lack of a plan from city officials to
improve things. After all, if the
trend continues, will there be
enough to lure people downtown?
The historic charm and quaint-
ness are there, as is the water-
front. And numerous successful


own

businesses as well as trendy, pri-
vately-owned shops and restau-1
rants are there, too. L
In other corners of the city,
condominiums seem to be sprirg-
ing up everywhere there is a -
vacant lot. Meanwhile, fewer s
attractions remain (no bowling t
alley, skating rink, batting cages,
etc) to entertain vacationers J
particularly families with chil- 1
dren.
Some local store owners I
downtown have hinted at the ,
attraction of a major restaurant br
retailer locating in the historic i
district. This has happened in i
other tourist areas, such as I
Savannah and Key West, where?
big-time retailers or restaurants'
or hotels move into the historic
downtown setting.'
The opening of the Hamptori
Inn & Suites on South Second J
Street has been a positive step fbr
tourism. Getting tourists and .
locals downtown and occupying
them will help the stores and i
restaurants and businesses. The
downtown here is an invaluable
asset and must be preserved. I
But none of these lingering -
concerns could hamper the
enthusiasm and fun on Centre
Street Friday. )
Let's hope the holidays bring
much magic and many shop- )
pers to downtown Fernandink
Beach this season.
Steve Nicklas is a financial I
adviser who lives on Amelia )
Island.

OPINION


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Get the facts straight
In your Nov. 16, edition, Steve
Nicklas wrote an article ("Ouch -
condo assessments") about the
'Forest Ridge Village condo com-
plex that was full of errors and very
misleading.
Our complex is in a major state
of disrepair to the point that the
city has warned us of possible con-
demnation of certain buildings if
repairs aren't done promptly. Why
are they in this condition? Because
other boards tried to schedule
repairs, but the same people com-
plaining now stopped them due to
unwillingness to pay. As the old
TV commercial used to say, "You
can pay me now, or pay me later."
hOur roofs are over 20 years old,
70 percent of our siding is rotten,
Sthe buildings experience extensive
water intrusion and, as a result,
'significant termite and water dam-
age exists. That's why it's going to
cost $24,000 per unit to make the
required repairs. Later is now.
As to our owners, less than 30
percent are full-time residents. The
rest are second homes or rental
units. Our property manager does-
n't make $51,000 per year; he
makes less than half of that.
The homeowner who doesn't
know where her $250 per month
goes apparently doesn't read her
mail. The 2005 budget was mailed
to all owners last January. It
detailed by line item the amounts
for insurance (our largest single
expense), repairs, landscape, pool
and pond maintenance, utilities,
etc. She could stop by the associa-
tion office and ask for a copy of
"the budget.
In the future, please do a little
more research, get more than one
disgruntled owner's opinion and
misleading, inaccurate statements.
You owe it to your readers to get
the facts straight about a fine com-
plex like Forest Ridge Village.

Reason to cry
Re: "Supporters rally to
clerk's defense," Nov. 25.
I am thankful to see and hear
that there were those of us who
-support our city clerk at this unfor-


tunate time.
(Vice Mayor Beano) Roberts
along with other city employees
who are adamant about firing the
city clerk should place that same
urgency on other employees,
departments and procedures.
There is a need for improvement.
One employee said "she cries when
angry" well, let us all become
angry and cry over all of the inad-
equacies in Fernandina Beach city
government (they are numerous).
Our wonderful city of
Fernandina Beach operates on the
"good ole boy" system. I am won-
dering are there other reasons than
the mistake that warrant Roberts
and others to oust City Clerk
Cassandra Mitchell?

Way back in the early '70s, I
was a young full-time employee at

What and when
and how? ,
The recent special (Nov. 22)
Fernandina Beach City
Commission meeting where there
was a vote to terminate/suspend
/humiliate City Clerk Cassandra
Mitchell a couple days before the
Thanksgiving holiday not only
betrayed a jaded sense of timing
but also raised serious questions
about the behavior of City Attorney
Debra Braga and to what extent
her involvement in this mess may
be. To paraphrase a political phrase
of the early 1970s: What did City
Attorney Braga know and when
did she know it and how did she
intend to use it?
City Attorney Braga appears to
have at times somewhat of a selec-
tive memory that tends to favor
her needs perhaps what looked
to be a short bout of "neurolin-
guistic chaos" which I witnessed
during that special meeting of Nov.
22. She sure can quote a statute
verbatim real quick but when it


comes to reading notes in her own
handwriting, her memory lapse
shows up once again. One would
just have to listen to the tapes of
that meeting and it would be clear
to any reasonable listener. Braga's
dubiously keen sense of timing is
the best I've witnessed when she
let the most recent proverbial cat
out of the bag. Her calculated tim-
ing is also tellingly transparent.
The facts as I know them are
that Braga was acutely aware of
the "Social Security numbers"
breach approximately a week or
so before bringing this issue to the
full attention of the city commis-
sion/city employees and citizens
via television, i.e., anyone who has
cable. No doubt this must have
spooked all who were included in
this breach of personal informa-
tion, One must ask: Why didn't the
city attorney our "legal expert"-
immediately upon being made
aware of the fact send notification
of this situation to all those impact-
ed by this breach of security
instead of letting 200-plus city
employees find out during a regu-
larly scheduled city commission
meeting?
When was notice sent out from
Braga to inform city employees of
this breach? Again, Braga had this
information in her possession at
least a week prior to it hitting live
television. I submit that it was a
blatant attempt by City Attorney
Braga to create the most political
carnage out of a matter that should
have been handled with better dis-
cretion and an intentional effort
on her part to inflict severe mental
anguish upon the city clerk and to
manipulate the emotions of city
employees en masse in hopes of
influencing the vote of the
Fernandina Beach City Commis-
sioners. Hence the special meet-
ing.
I personally do not think the
way the vote went is what she
would have liked. Woodward and
Bernstein, call your office. I see a
non-fictional bestseller here.
Maybe Doc Burgess can help
refresh Ms. Braga's memory.

here again so like most folks I got
geared up to buy some Christmas
presents. However, when I started
looking in the stores, I noticed
there were no "Christmas gifts" to
buy.
There seemed to be plenty of
"Happy Holidays" and "Seasons
Greetings" gifts, which conjured
up thoughts in my head of "and
you have a nice day, too," but no
Christmas gifts.
After some thought, I began to
realize that I don't buy Valentine
gifts if it is not Valentine's Day or
birthday gifts if it is not someone's
birthday, so why should I buy
Christmas gifts if we don't recog-
nize Christmas anymore?
I don't buy gifts on Dec. 21 to
celebrate the beginning of the win-
ter season, I don't buy gifts to cel-
ebrate the flu season, or buy gifts
to celebrate the hunting season,
so why should I buy gifts to cele-
brate the "Holiday Season?" I only
want Christmas gifts under the
Christmas tree.
Until I find a store that sells
"Christmas gifts" to celebrate
"Christmas Day" to all my friends
and family I say, "Remember, it's

The jokes on



men, as usual

A actually, there's no news at all in this
item, but I thought you'd like to know:
A study at Stanford University shows
that women have a more sophisticated
sense of humor than men.
My wife told me that on our second date.
But now it's been proven. Here's what hap-
pened:
Researchers at Stanford gave 10 men and 10
women a set of 70 single-panel cartoons and mon-
itored their brains as participants evaluated the
jokes.
When the cartoons brought smiles or laughs
from the women, the monitors showed a burst of
brain activity in both the
left prefrontal cortex,
which governs language
.' .., .ing, and the nucleus
"" ,ij accumbens, called the
''S ,. ', reward center of the brain.
Research director Allen
.., Reiss said the activity sug-
gests that women thought
more about the cartoons
before deciding if they
Phil' Werer^ft Q)yas af-rnm
Hudgins mo6r1espleasure wten they
actually got the joke.
Men, on the other hand,
FROM THE expected the cartoons to be
HOME OFFICE funny and gave them less
thought. So their brains
showed less activity in both regions, meaning
they really experienced less pleasure. They
apparently laughed more but enjoyed it less.
That, Reiss told the Associated Press, is why
men laugh at flatulence jokes and slapstick. They
don't have to think about anything; they just
laugh.
But a joke or cartoon really needs to be clever
to make a woman laugh. She must think about it.
Sometimes the mere mention of a word or two
makes men laugh. For example: Epsom salts.
You male readers smiled, didn't you? You.
-women had to think about it, and you probably
didn't crack a grin. "What's funny about Epsom
salts?" you're thinking.
I don't know. None of us men knows. The
words are just funny.
But women are more sophisticated in other
ways, too. Except.for the stereotypical Southern
woman who ends up in front of the TV. camera
explaining how the tornado just swooped down,
grabbed her aluminum chaise lounges and fes-
tooned the big oak tree in the neighbor's yard,
women are more sophisticated than men.
Have you ever heard a woman ask her hus-
band, "Honey, does this jacket match this
blouse?" .
No, and you never will. With few exceptions,
men don't know which colors match and which
ones clash. I've worn shoes of different colors to
work. Twice.
Women instinctively know which fork to use
and when. They know which side of the bread to
butter and on which one of those little;saucers the
bread belongs. Men just watch them and follow'
suit.
Women know when it's appropriate to laugh at
church. Men laugh at the wrong time, like when a
friend two rows up spills communion wine on his
white shirt.
So why did Stanford waste all that money try-
ing to prove that women have a more sophisticat-
ed sense, of humor? To' me, it was a waste of good
brainpower, and men don't have any to waste.

VIEWPOINT/RoBERT M. WEINTRAUB/EAST NASSAU HOMEOWNERS' COUNCIL


Taxpayers pay for developers' carnage


F ive billion dollars anid counting! That's the
money Florida taxpayers have to cough up -
so far to correct the environmental dam-
age caused by uncontrolled development
throughout the state.
This is a stunning revelation in Herb Hiller's new
book Highway A1A. Florida at the Edge, This is the
third book on Florida by Hiller, who has lived in the
state for almost half a century and has a home near
Palatka. He was a lecturer at the recent Amelia
Book Island Festival where we had the opportunity
to meet with him.
Highway AlA: Florida at the Edge essentially tells
the history and current dynamics of every county -
and many communities touched by Florida's sce-
nic highway from Callahan to Key West Within this
framework, Hiller puts current situations into an his-
torical context which can be eye-openers for new-
comers to Florida who, as Hiller describes them,
"neither know Florida history nor have they lived
here long enough to care."
Many of Hiller's stories, while pertaining to
Florida as a whole or to other communities, res-
onate strongly here in Nassau County. These stories
tell of unfettered developers allowed to run amok by
friendly governments and the huge sums of taxpay-
er money now being collected to correct the wanton
damage.
The Florida story changed dramatically when
government incentives favored development to lure
visitors, then retirees, Hiller writes. "One result was
the environmental degradation of inland Florida
with its collateral impacts on coastal resources.
Most of Florida is a low-lying narrow peninsula, but
even its puny rivers discharge polluting runoff that
affects coastal life in every way. Floridians depend
on these rivers and the aquifer beneath the land's
porous subsurface for drinking water. Yet the sub-
urbs trouble the supply by drainage that prepares
land for housing and by paving over critical water
recharge areas. Wells sour from the intrusion of salt
water sucked inland as rising demand pumps out
the fresh."
He could very well be talking about Nassau's
uncontrolled growth and the recent decision to vir-
tually eliminate wetland buffers that will have disas-
trous effects on our water quality and supply while
increasing the incidence of flooding; or the expected
decision (December) on the development of Crane
Island that will set the stage for a costly catastrophe;
or the emerging tree "protection" ordinance that
will enable developers to strip the county bare.
Hiller documents what taxpayers have to pay
. elsewhere in Florida to correct the ravages of devel-


opment: $490 million for the
Kissimmee River, $100 million
3 to restore the headwaters of the
St. Johns River, $400 million in
Broward, $100 million in Palm
Beach, Miami-Dade $2.9 billion,
S : Lee County (Fort Myers) $77
million, Brevard (Cape
Canaveral) $55 million, and so
on. This is taxpayer money
Weintraub including yours and mine as fed-
eral and state funds are involved.
What is going to be OUR price
tag once the developers are done here?
How did we get to this situation? Hiller's book is
revealing. Florida once was largely swamp with
unconnected oak hammocks and barrier beaches.
Some visionaries such as Hammilton Disston and
Henry Morrison Flagler made Florida government
a deal: they would drain the land and build railroads
that would bring northern vacationers down. In
return they would be given large swaths of land to
do with as they pleased. Once the tourists were
coming they would be enticed to buy land and later
return as retirees. Thus was born Florida's "tripar-
tite regime" government/developers/tourist/
retirees that would enshrine a "pattern of give-
away in Florida policy" according to Hiller.
Other revealing quotes from Hiller's book:
"In the effort to lure every visitor with Florida's
accessible beauty, the natural systems that underlay
that beauty were everywhere turned into the
currency of trinkets and schlock." "Everywhere in
Florida the public realm has been diminished for
private gain." "Floridians, who might reasonably
expect government to undo the despoliation, often
find government the culprit." "Natural assets are
steadily stressed, calling for massive remedial
expenditures, in effect subsidizing the building
industry, which lobbies effectively against paying its
own way."
Hiller takes a bit of a pollyannish view that this is
turning around with public outrage. He sees a con-
sensus forming "that Florida's economy needs to
shift from dependence on ever-expanding popula-
tion to something more focused on a quality of life
based on environmental restoration."
But that hasn't happened here in Nassau yet.
Nassau had originally been bypassed by the rail-
roads and highways that sped visitors to the Gold
Coast and Tampa Bay, Hiller explains. This is why
Jacksonville developed as an industrial/commercial
center rather than a tourist, destination. But that has
changed and the First Coast is experiencing the

HERB HILLER, WRITER
HIGHWAY AIA: FLORIDA AT THE EDGE

uncontrolled and environmentally damaging devel-
opment that Southern Florida went through
decades earlier. Other than a small handful of resi-
dents who rail against county and city officials, who
change their comprehensive plans at the very sight
of a developeror his lawyer in their chambers,
Nassau taxpayers have yet to realize what is happen-
ing to them.
Not all ,development has been bad, Hiller'points
out. He extols the work of Charles Fraser, the
genius behind the Amelia Island Plantation. "Fraser
... understood that by preserving environment he
could attract buyers willing to pay a premium to live
in a place that valued its immediate surroundings,"
Hiller writes. Fraser preserved more than 70 per-
cent of the tree canopy at AIP
Those who have followed Fraser to develop the
rest of Amelia Island and Nassau County have not
been as kind to the environment.
In the next several weeks and months Nassau
will face several critical issues: Crane Island devel-
opment, the new tree "protection" ordinance, wet-
lands preservation, impact fees that will require
developers to pay their way are key among them. If
the county takes its usual course and sides with
developers, then it will set the stage for enormous
cost to taxpayers to correct the damage in the
future just as is happening throughout Southern
Florida today.
The only way to stop this is with large-scale pub-
lic protests at county Planning and Zoning Board
and commission meetings. So when the call goes
out for the public to attend meetings in large num-
bers, heed what 17th century English poet John
Donne wrote:
"No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man
is a ... part of the main .... therefore never send to
know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."


Walking down the dock one day, we spot-
ted our first Florida manatee stuffing
green stuff that grows underneath
these docks into his mouth with his
front flippers. "Hey, [lok at this!" The manatee was
not afraid oiour pcserce o:ur voices and contin-
ued to eat.
Westared at him with awe because he was so
huge (one has been recorded at 3,500 pounds). This
Florida manatee, a sub-species of the West Indian
manatee, appeared to weigh about 1,000 pounds.
Brownish gray with a small head and little eyes com-
pared to the size of the rest of his body, every three
to five minutes he breathed air. We listened to his
snorts. In a flurry of excitement, I hurried to the city
library, carrying home books about manatees to
study.
Manatees can stay underwater about 20 minutes,
napping on a shallow bottom and rising to the sur-
face to breathe regularly even while sleeping. They
bob up, take a breath and sink back to the bottom.
About 20 percent of weight is fat, adding to their
buoyancy. Solid backbones enable them to.easily
sink. A full-grown manatee can measure 13 feet long
but the book says a mammal never stops growing.
During growth, more bone is added to support
weight.
A day or so later we saw two more manatees
along the dockside eating. The first had a long scar
across his back from an injury caused by a boat pro-
peller. There are signals at the local marinas warning
boaters to proceed slowly in the presence of these
great animals. Fortunately manatees have a clotting
chemical in their blood that kicks in to heal severe
injuries, but they can still go into shock and die.
Even though manatees hear very well they have
poor depth perception at close range. Prop sound
frequencies along with their normal, slow moving
ways put them in danger around boaters. It is esti-
mated that 80 percent of Florida's manatees are boat-
scarred.
A charter fisherman was scrubbing his boat. We
watched a large manatee drink from a water hose
purposely dangling off the stern. Everyone was
laughing as we watched this manatee. He kept drink-
ing and drinking fresh water. As he rinsed out his
mouth overand over we could see his whiskers and
bulbous tongue. He rolled the water around, enjoy-
ing every drop. It is not known if manatees have to
drink fresh water from time to time but if he was an
example, they sure enjoy it. I read that manatees can
make fresh water from stored body fat if no fresh
water is available.

Manatee awareness
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has signed a proclamation naming November as "Manatee
Awareness Monlh," the time of year when manatees usually start returning to Flprida's warm

'The manatee is Florida's official marine mammal, a distinctive and valuable natural
resource," reads the proclamation recently signed by the governor.
Watercraft collisions are the primary known cause of manatee mortality. Since record keep-
ing began in 1974 through Oct. 31, 1,369 manatees have been killed by boats. Additionally, -
manatees become entangled in crab trap and monofilament fishing lines; they ingest debris;
and they drown or get crushed in floodgates and canal locks.

the dock. The baby peered over the edge to look at
the humans. His sweet face stretched as far as it
could go. Underneath him his mother swam close
by, her silhouette big and intimidating. The books
said a manatee does not fight, even to protect her
young. They are very gentle animals. During mating
season the males do not battle each other, nor do
they fight for territory. They just push and shove to
-get close to the female when it is time for her to
mate. A resistant female will swim to shoals to elude
males and slap them with her tail. The book said, in
this case, there were 17 suitors. It was reported that
a female might mate with more than one male.
Sometimes mothers give birth to twins. A manatee
mother will nurse a baby in need along with her own.
Another manatee appeared a few days later along-
side our dock. This one didn't like the sound of a
human voice, disappearing under a boat when he
heard us. I couldn't help but remember a sunny day
when two children at the end of the dock were pet-
ting a large manatee. Divers report scratching mana-
tee bellies under water and how much the animals
enjoy it A manatee showed up regularly in a marina
in Miami to have his belly scratched with a deck
brush. In St. Augustine a large manatee regularly
visited the dockmaster at the city yacht club to have
him scrape barnacles off his back with a paint'
scraper. A manatee at the zoo's Manatee Center in
Dundee follows his keeper around to grab lettuce.
He begs for excess food by taping his mouth with his
right flipper while floating on the surface. A friend in
Key West reports residents leave wilted lettuce and
carrots on their docks for the manatees.
At Blue Springs State Park a young male likes to
lie sideways on the bottom and let the current roll
him over and over down the run. Georgia, raised in
captivity at Sea World Orlando until she got to be
1,600 pounds, was released to Blue Springs Park.


She has always been a lovable pest
A few manatees seem to view snorkelers and
divers as ready-made play objects, and a good source
for,back rubs and belly scratches. Manatee calves
poke at blue crabs, apparently amused at their
response.
A database has been established to track 1,200
manatees by painlessly attaching radio tags. Chessie,
the wandering adult male manatee, in 1994 swam all
the way to Rhode Island and was given a lift home to
Florida by an Air Force C-130. During the summer of
1995, he took off again for Rhode Island. Tracked by
satellite, covering 20 miles a day, he stopped to ride
the surf at Ocean City, Md., and then again off the
New Jersey beaches typically staying two or three
days before moving on. Maximum speed is sup-
posed to be 15 mph. A good cruise speed is 2 mph.
Manatees have a slow metabolism, the slowest of
all mammals, that keeps them from staying in cold
waters. Their body temperature is a little lower than
a human's 98.6E During winter they congregate in
warm rivers, greeting each other with what seem
"hugs and kisses." Although they are usually soli-
tary, during other months of the year they enjoy the
contact of each other, rubbing close with their bod-
ies as though making up for lost time.
Babies stay with their mothers two years learning
water routes and where to find food. During this
time mother and baby communicate constantly.
Manatees have no vocal chords and it is a mystery
how they make noises. Scientists are still learning
about this 45-million-year old animal whose closest
relative is an Elephant. Many years ago many sea
animals left the ocean and walked on earth, then
returned to the sea. No one knows why. As I write
this there is a manatee under our boat, drinking
fresh water from the vessel's air conditioning heat
exchanger output spout.


Why can t you rent with furry friends?


I W 7"hy is it so difficult to find a place to rent
when your family includes three cats?
II And if you are fortunate enough to
locate a place willing to accept cats, the
pet fees often place that rental out of reach. Imagine
having to pay $375 for the first cat and $100 for each
additional one. (We have three.) ,
It's outrageous!.
Our three cats are fat and lazy and do little but
sleep and eat.
They're way past the stage where they rip
through the house at high speeds, knocking lamps
off tables or knickknacks off shelves.
They have never offered to sharpen their claws on
the furniture and they're all fixed so there's no spray-
ing going on.
All three of our cats are very fastidious in their
use of the kitty box and don't ever do their business
elsewhere.


So what's the problem?
Since all of our children
have left the nest, our cats fill
the void left by their absence.
We cherish their purring
closeness and loyal compan-
ionship.
In other words: They are
not just cats, they are part of
our family. As such, they go
where we go and we can't bear
to be without them.
Heather Perry But it looks as if we may
... have to face that possibility
because it is becoming appar-
NEWSROOM ent that finding a place to rent
VIEWS while our new house is being
built means finding other
accommodations for our furry kids.


I don't think they'd.understand being parted from
us even for just a few months after being our
close companions for six years. Whatever rental we
managed to secure would feel cold and empty with-
out them.
How do you explain to a cat that they have to live
somewhere else for a little while because you can't
find a rental that accepts them?
How do you tell your napping buddy there'll be no
more shared afternoon siestas because the landlord
/has a strict "no pets" policy?
Even having to ponder these questions brings a
tear to the eye, which only someone who has ever
been loved by a cat could understand.
Multiply that by three and you have some idea of
the conundrum faced by a family in search of a rental
without a "no pets" clause.

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging con-
sumers to take the time to investi-
gate charitable organizations
before making any donations.
There were some charity scams
during recent hurricane relief
efforts and the holiday season is
one of the busiest for charities,
many collecting about half their
annual donations, between
Thanksgiving and New Year's Day
Florida law requires most char-
ities to register with the depart-
ment and provide financial infor-
mation about income and
expenditures, including how much
is used for fundraising and admin-
istrative costs, and how much actu-
ally goes to program services.
As of Nov. 1, there were 10,937
charities and professional solici-
tors registered with the, depart-
ment. An annual "Gift Givers'
Guide" lists all registered chari-
ties and provides a breakdown of
tAeir spending. The guide also
includes the names of profession-
al solicitors and consultants who
are working on behalf of a chari-
table organization.
Consumers can obtain a free

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader

Hurricane season officially ends
today, but Nassau County relief
efforts continue to help those affect-
ed by Hurricane Katrina.
"Operation Lend-A-Hand" is the
latest drive to provide residents in
Hancock County, Miss., with blan-
kets, bedding and household goods
this winter.
Ben Spillers of the Nassau
County Emergency Management
Department said residents in
Hancock County are still struggling
to cope with the loss of property
and housing, much of which was
wiped out by Katrina in August.
The Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency is currently sup-
plying mobile homes to many vic-
tims, but Spillers, said they need
household items to make these
homes livable.
"FEMA is bringing them trail-
ers, but they're basically empty,"
he said. "Now they need blankets,
bedding, toasters, plates, utensils,
small appliances and pots and pans
to go in them."
In the wake of Katrina, Hancock
County was "adopted" by volun-
teers and officials from Nassau
County and Fernandina Beach.
Many were stunned by the dev-
astation there, as well as the area's
similarity to their' hometown.
Hancock is a rapidly growing
coastal community with a popula-
tion of about 50,000 people, about
10,000 of whom live in the Gulf city
of Bay St Louis.
For months local volunteers and
officials have concentrated their
efforts on helping Hancock rebuild
and recover.
Local officials and residents
here stay in regular communica-
tion with residents and officials in
Hancock, so specific needs can be
addressed when supplies are col-
lected and delivered.
"They're telling us what they
need and we're trying to arrange
that for them," Spillers said.
"They're past the need for canned
goods, clothes and things like that.


Dealerships helped
In the first weeks after
Hurricane Katrina, local auto-
mobile dealerships played a
vital role in coordinating relief
efforts with other businesses
and provided a staging area
for county trucks and supplies I
bound for the Gulf Coast.
Nassau County Emergency
Management Coordinator Ben
Spillers said that made it pos-,
sible for more than 20 trucks
to ferry goods from Nassau
County to places like Hancock
County, Miss., and Dauphin
Island. Ala.
However, after four months
the dealerships are no longer
designated drop-off points for
donated items. From now on,
items should be taken directly
to any county or city fire sta-
tion.
"The relief effort couldn't
have happened without the
dealerships," Spillers said.
"There was no place for the
county or city to take such a
large amount of goods. All of
them did a wonderful job."

But there's a million things they
still need and our job is to find out
what that is and get it to them."
Spillers said the local effort is
also sending press releases, flyers
and e-mails to remind people that
the Gulf's plight is far from over.
During the holiday season,
when so many people there are still
without homes, jobs and daily
essentials, he said it's important to
remember the problems aren't just
going to go away.
"It's going to be a long, long
ordeal," Spillers said. "There's
always a drop off in response after
the first month of a catastrophe.
But there's a lot of rebuilding left to
do there."
Items are being collected at any
Nassau County or Fernandina
Beach fire station. For more infor-
mation, call (904) 5484980.

To the Children, Inc.


Dear Friends,

'Tis the season to start thinking of joy ... JOY To the Children, that is!

What is JOY To the Children? A non-profit organization founded in 1995 that pro-
vides Nassau County's economically disadvantaged children and their families with
clothing, toys, books, pillows, blankets, sheets, bicycles, personal hygiene items,
educational toys, entertainment, and a complete holiday feast on Christmas Day.
Last year, JOY hosted over 160 children and their parents in a festive celebration.

This year's festivities are scheduled at the beautiful, new Yulee Middle School.
Throughout the year, JOY's Volunteer Board works hard organizing and reaching out
to the community ... from Yulee Middle School facilities and its wonderful staff ...
to working with local agencies and teachers who identify participating families ...
to contacting local restaurants and resorts which provide the bountiful feast .. to
working with local department stores ... while organizing literally hundreds of vol-
unteers to help shop for the cloths, toys, bedding, underwear and stocking stuffers.
Volunteers then sort, wrap, greet, sing, play, set-up, distribute gifts and clean up!

Now all we need is YOU!

Thanks to the support from people like you, this celebration has successfully
brought the spirit of Christmas to more than 1,700 children since 1995. We invite
you to be part of this loving tradition with a cash contribution, in-kind donation, or
with your time and talents. Your contribution goes directly to benefiting the chil-
dren, because all JOY members are volunteers. JOY is a 501 (cX3) organization, so

Bald eagle sightings enticing, but ospreys remain more common


ver since the recent arti-
cle on ospreys and
eagles ("Ospreys, bald
... eagles compete for nest
,sites" Nov. 16) I have been
receiving e-mails and verbal
, reports of more osprey/eagle
; sightings along with some inter-
esting questions from our read-
ers. No sense keeping all this to
myself, right? So, here are some
updates to
- bring you all
in the loop.
First off,
many thanks

for the great
photo of a
mature bald
Eagle inspect-
ing the nest Pat
,:at the north Foster- Turley
end of 14th -
Street.
Sandra took WILD WAYS
this photo a
few weeks ago along with a
photo of another mature bald
eagle (the mate?) watching from
a nearby snag in the marsh. She
reports that during the time of
the eagles' visit, they were being
continually dive-bombed by the
resident ospreys. It looks like, for
now, the ospreys have won this
-round, since eagles have not
been recorded since then on the
I nest, but the ospreys are invari-
ably near the nest, keeping
watch over it, whenever I pass
by.
A resident of Oyster Bay


development off Barnwell Road
in Yulee has been keeping a
close eye on the resident preda-
tory bird nest for a number of
years. In the winter, she reports
that great horned owls use this
nest, and then the resident
osprey pair takes their turn,
much like we have seen at the
14th Street nest. For the first
time, this year, though, she has
also seen bald eagles. On a
recent morning jog through her
neighborhood she saw four bald
eagles two adults and two
immature birds all perched in
the same tall pine tree. It will be
interesting to see if any nesting
activity is noted. Everyone, keep
your eyes open for nesting bald
eagles in our county.
So far all of these reports are
enticing, but until we can watch
an active eagle nest through the
season we will not be able to set
the record straight. And so far,
the record, maintained by the,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission's Breeding Bird
Atlas
(http://myfwc.com/bba/species.
htm) is that bald eagles do not
nest in Nassau County. Wouldn't
it be great if we could change
this?
Now, on to the osprey set of
the equation. Ospreys are much
more common than bald eagles
and seen throughout much of the
year.
This time of year in our area,
ospreys are actively beginning to
maintain and rehabilitate their
nests in preparation for an early
i.n-^- I


-Bath.A~cceisories


spring nesting season. I've
already seen the ospreys at the
14th Street nest carrying sticks
back to the platform, and more
sticks will be coming, I'm sure.
But, it is not only sticks that
our local ospreys are collecting.
One resident has reported that
an osprey is coming into her
yard in the morning to make off
with chunks of sod she is trying
to install and wonders what to do
about it. She has tried putting out
mothballs, to no avail. I've told
her something she maybe does-
n't want to hear. An osprey is a
fish-eater, and not interested in
the sod or landscape material as
a food source. Most likely, it is
carrying off the sod as nesting
material. Most ospreys return
repeatedly to the same nest, and
it sounds to me like this bird is
starting afresh and is desperate
for "flooring."
After this building stage
comes twigs and branches, so
the problem will soon be over.
The most generous thing this
homeowner can do is put up with
the "problem" and enjoy the fact
that for the cost of a few chunks
of sod, she is graced with an


unusual wildlife watching experi-
ence. In our overly developed
world, a little help from human
friends goes a long way!
Another reader has a different
take on osprey nesting. This
reader would like to encourage
osprey nesting in her backyard,
which overlooks a golf course.
Can she put up an osprey-nesting
platform, she wonders?
I've told her to take a look at
the osprey nesting platform on
14th Street and see if such a tall
monstrous structure is within
her budget and would meet the
building guidelines of her com-
munity. Probably not, on both
counts, I'd guess. In addition,
ospreys usually nest near their
watery fish sources, not golf
courses. Other predatory birds,
like great-horned owls, various
hawks and other rodent-eaters,
though, do like to nest near golf
courses. The presence of tall
trees, both alive or dead
("snags") in relatively undis-
turbed areas near a good food
source will very likely bring in
nesting predatory birds all by
themselves.
Now, on another topic, I've

beginning to think that otters

Despite 'Pandora's box' fears,


county votes to take on road


LIL SPINKS/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Nassau County Fire Rescue Marshal Roger Henderson examines the northeast wall of the
kitchen in Tina's Family Restaurant, where a fire is suspected of starting Thanksgiving Day
morning.


Callahan eatery damaged in fire


LIL SPINKS
West Nassau Correspondent
Tina's Family Restaurant, just
north of Callahan on US 1, was
damaged by fire early Thanksgiv-
ing Day morning.
The restaurant, owned byTina
:Clark, was known as The Florida
Room until a few months ago,
when Clark bought it and
reopened it under the new name.
A desk clerk on duty at the adja-
cent Ship Inn called 911 at 12:26


a.m. and reported seeing smoke
coming from the vents in the
restaurant's attic.
Firefighters were on the scene
within four minutes of that call,
said Nassau County Fire Rescue
Chief Chuck Cooper, including
units from Station 50, Station 40
and the River Road Volunteer Fire
Department Station 9.
While the restaurant's two din-
ing rooms remained well intact,
the kitchen was virtually
destroyed. Cooper said the cause


of the fire appeared to be electrical.
The commercial building dates
back to the 1950s.
Clark said when she first
arrived at the scene, she didn't see
any flames, just the burned-out
kitchen and a lot of water damage.
She said the structure is covered
by insurance.
Cooper estimated the business
would be closed for two to three
weeks, or until the owner could
workwith the insurance company
to make the repairs to reopen.


Do anything, 'fitness guru urges


AMANDA BISHOP
Community Newspapers
Eat one M&M and you'll have
to walk the entire length of a foot-
ball field to drop the calories you
just ate. Eat one Snickers bar and
be prepared to walk the football
field 34 times.
Smart exercise and eating high
calorie foods in moderation are
the keys to a healthy body, says
Robert Sw'eetgall, the man who
walked 11,208 miles through 48
states in 1984.
-..Nicknamed "Butterball" for his
childhood obesity, he is now a
healthy, slender and active man.
He spoke at West Nassau High
Scl ,:lI. Fernandina Beach High
School and Amelia Island'
Plantation Nov. 16 about the
importance of proper exercise
geared to one's own capabilities.
"Do anything, anything is bet-
ter than nothing," Sweetgall said.
"All physical activities are good as
long as you enjoy them and they
don't hurt you."
A number of things judge the
quality of a workout, including
enjoyment, practicality, safety and
longevity.
"Do activities you can do all of
your life," he said, adding that
while running can be a great form
of exercise, it's not something you
can do as easily at age 90 as you
can earlier in life.
A fifth way to judge the quality
of the workout is its conditioning
effect. Sweetgall said the exercise
should affect a person spiritually,
intellectually, socially, emotionally
or physically.
Consistency is also important.
"Don't brag about your high
school football trophies," he told
the roughly 20 adults listening at
WNHS. "The name of the game
is 'What have you done for me
lately?'"
The type of exercise program a
person chooses depends on what
they are trying to achieve.
By adding just 17 minutes of
movement to your day, you can
lose one pound of body fat in a


Month's time,
Sweetgall said.
If a person is
aiming to
improve their
P cardiovascular,
-systems, then
intense exercise
Sweetgall is the key. They
should concen-
trate on activities
such as fast-paced walking to get
their hearts pumping hard.
If a person is aiming to burn
calories, they should do longer
periods of exercise, like walking,
biking or swimming longer dis-
tances.
For anyone wishing to do both,
Sweetgall said they should ali r-'
nate between speed and distance


exercise from day to day.
He recommends using walk-
ing poles to improve walking. and
burn more calories.
'Two miles with poles is like
three without them," he said,
adding the poles help a person to
burn 40 percent more calories
because they utilize muscles from
both the lower and upper body.
They also help to strengthen a per-
son's bones.
Sweetgall recommends using a
pedometer and keeping an exer-
cise journal to see whether exer-
cise goals are being reached.
"Just do the best you can do,"
he said.

cise and Sweetgall, visit www.crea

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
For years Dewey Franklin paid
the county a fee to maintain a sec-
tion of Franklin Road, a private dirt
road leading to his house near
Hilliard.
But after the county permitted
other houses to build off Franklin
road over the years, he told the
Nassau County Commission he did-
n't feel the burden should continue
to fall on his shoulders.
So Franklin who is an in-law of
Commissioner Floyd Vanzant -
requested the county take over
maintenance of the 1.5-mile stretch
of road. The commission did that
by a 3-2 vote Nov. 16, on the con-
dition Franklin can secure a wider
easement.
Commissioners Jim B.
Higginbotham, Tom Branan and
Vanzant voted in favor of Branan's
motion.
But Commissioner Marianne
Marshall and Chair Ansley Acree
voted against the decision, and both
expressed concern it could open.a
"Pandora's box," inundating the
county with requests to maintain
private dirt roads.


"I have to look at all the roads in
Nassau County, and of course I'd
like for them all to be paved,"
Marshall said. "But there are so
many roads just like this. It needs
to be addressed but when the
door opens..."
"It's a pandora's box," Acree
said.
There are about 400 miles of
unpaved roads in the county,
County Engineer Jose Deliz said.
He estimates about half of those
are private and on easements, not
rights-of-way. The county will main-
tain these roads for a fee, but nor-
mally it will not take them over.
In the 1990s, the county would
maintain some of these roads if res-
idents paid a fee, as was the case on
Franklin Road.
But the county commission now
faces the question of whether to
continue that practice, take over
the road, or hold the position all
the roads should be privately main-
tained.
"It's a lot of roads, and we don't
have the resources to do it," Deliz
said about maintaining dirt roads.
"And after we maintain it, often the
home owners will then want the
county to pave it."


In this case, the county agreed
to take over the road if the ease-
ment could be increased to 60 feet,
because it had previously permitted
houses to access the road despite
the fact the road was substandard.
Deliz said that's sometimes a
problem, because the county does-
n't have the manpower to make a
site inspection of every road for
every home or mobile home that
gets a permit There are also "paper
roads," which exist on maps but
are not physically there.
Prior to the vote, Acree encour-
aged the commission to postpone
the decision in order to gather
more information for a countywide
resolution, instead of a "piecemeal"
one.
But Branan urged the commis-
sion to take action, saying the coun-
ty should never have permitted the
houses.
Vanzant explained that he and
Franklin are in-laws because his
son married Franklin's daughter.
County Attorney Mike Mullin said
since the relationship was based
on marriage, and Vanzant's son did
not live on the road, he was not
ethically required to abstain.

COURT REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office, the
city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a
crime, not guilt.

Pump breaks
Vandalism is suspected at a
Sadler Road construction site after
a hydraulic pump, worth approx-
imately $30,000, quit working last
week.
According to a report from the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department the pumnp, used to
drain the water level of a nearby
pond, was a source of "numerous
complaints" from local residents
due to "noise ... generated
throughout the night."
On Nov. 23, the president of
the construction company -
International Underground
Construction reported to police
that the pump was not working;
she said possibly the gauges
were tampered with, causing the
engine to overheat and shut
down.
Police did not notice any visi-
ble damage to the pump.
According to the report, there are

Drug arrests at school
Two West Nassau County
High School students were arrest-
ed Nov. 22 for alleged illegal pos-
session of prescription drugs
while on campus.
A 16-year-old Callahan boy and
a 17-year-old Callahan girl were
arrested separately for posses-
sion of a controlled substance;
they were each released into the
custody of their parents.
The boy reportedly had four
pills of Seroquel a medication
used to treat bipolar disorder -
inside a pill box. He told school
officials the medication was "for
his depression problems," accord-
ing to a report from the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office, but the
school apparently did not have
any information on file indicating
the medication had been pre-
scribed to the boy.
The girl was found with five

Vandalism at schools
Fernandina Beach police are
investigating three reports of van-
dalism at Fernandina Beach
schools last week.
On Nov. 22 at about 6:30 a.m.
officials at Fernandina Beach
Middle School discovered spray
painting on the walls inside the
school, and two student vehicles
were reportedly damaged during
the school day on Nov. 21 at
Fernandina Beach High School.
Between 7:50 a.m. and 3 p.m., the
rear window of one vehicle
was broken by a rock and anoth-
er vehicle was scratched with a
rock.
Damage to the first vehicle is
estimated at $850; repairing the
second vehicle will cost approxi-
mately $900, according to a report

Island car chase ends in arrest


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A Fernandina Beach man was
arrested Sunday following a car
chase with the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office that reportedly
ended when the suspect crashed
into a fire hydrant.
Albert Lynn Delon, 21, 607 S.
Ninth St, was arrested Sunday for
fleeing and attempting to elude law
enforcement officers, reckless driv-
ing, driving with a license that has
been suspended or revoked, crim-
inal mischief, resisting arrest with-
out violence and battery on a law
enforcement officer.
Delon is being held at the
Nassau County Jail on $10,002
bond.


According to
a NCSO report
a deputy spotted
Delon driving a
black 2005 BMW
north on Amelia
Road at an
"extremely high
Delon rate of speed." A
chase began
after the deputy
attempted to stop the vehicle, with
both cars reaching speeds up to
95 mph, according to the report.
The chase ended abruptly
when Delon allegedly ran off the
road and struck a fire hydrant at'
the comer of Amelia Road and Old
Amelia Avenue, causing about
$2,000 in damage to the hydrant -
not including "loss of water and


man hours used on the repair" -
and about $5,000 in damage to the
vehicle, owned by Robert Dale
Leebern of Fernandina Beach. The
car was not reported stolen. No
injuries were reported by Delon
or his passenger, a 17-year-old
Yulee boy.
After his arrest, police say
Delon spit on the arresting deputy
and inside his patrol vehicle.
"(Delon's) ... spit was located
throughout the front of my car to
include my vehicle's emergency
equipment... (and) personal prop-
erty," the arresting officer wrote in
the report.
The passenger was not arrest-
ed, according to Undersheriff Carl
Woodle.

Fourth arrest in armed robbery case


SHANNON MALCOM
Neis-Leader


Afourth man was arrested last
.week in connection with the 2004
armed robbery of an Amelia Island
bank.
Jason Jerome Hubbard, 30, of
Jacksonville was arrested Nov. 21
on a warrant for armed robbery
and is being held at the Nassau
County Jail on $500,002 bond.
He was transferred to Nassau

Three other men Alfred Lee


Fowler, 27, Paul
Lawrence Cross,
19, and Michael
Stewart, 30 -

men one of whom was armed
with a gun went into the bank


about 2:30 p.m. and ordered

been released on bond and is
awaiting trial. Fowler, Cross and

Florida Gators

simply the

better of two

average teams
What a battle
between Florida
and Florida
State over the
weekend. I can't remember a
game between the two
schools where every posses-
sion toward the end was so
vastly important to the out-
come. Both coaches were
dearly wringing their hands
:hr'iugh 'ult the gut-wrench-
ing contest. Yeah, the Florida
and Florida State 'i.'ketball
tennis appJear to have all the
":A ed:c Xls f, -r success this
season...
Now, :ib.'ul ti.t .:4-7
Florida football victory over
the Seminoles at The Swamp
Saturday. li anybody ktlls
you (hey predicted a blowout
by eiler side the- 're either
1 in' >,r they d,.rn't know foot-
ball friom ioo'.sbaljl.
How can anyone honestly
say they predicted Florida to
score 34 points against air,
much less the 11th best
defense in the country, after
the below-average offensive
year the Gators have pro-
duced?
Fact is, Florida is the bet-
ter of two average teams.
Whoop-ti-doo. Personally, I'll
be happy when both teams
are back playing on the big
stage. Hopefully that hap-
pens sooner than later...
So now the Seminoles
limp into Jacksonville to take
on Virginia Tech in the inau-
gural ACC Championship
Game Saturday at Alltel
Stadium. FSU head coach
Bobby Bowden now gets a
taste of how it feels to have
to play in a conference cham-
pionship game one week
after knocking heads with
one of his most bitter rivals.
I'm convinced it cost
Steve Spurrier's Gators a few
wins against the Seminoles
in the mid-1990s, when the
ol' head ball coach used to
insist winning the SEC was
more important than beating
Florida State.
Makes you wonder if
Bowden held back against
Florida last weekend. It's
doubtful, but if the
Seminoles come out firing
and pull the upset against
the Hokies, we might just
have ourselves a little con-
spiracy theory...
Florida State freshman
WR Fred Rouse was quoted
after the game as saying he
wished he had given Urban
Meyer more of a chance
when Florida's head coach
recruited him.
"I can't believe that man
recruited me as hard as he
did, and I dissed him," Rouse
told Sun-Sentinel reporter
Craig Barnes. "I regret it
now."
A little advice, Fred:
Telling the world that you
wish you were on the team
that just spanked your team's
fanny is no way to endear
yourself to your fans. In fact,
it's a good way to get run out
of Tallahassee...
CBSSportsline.com is
predicting a Miami-Louisville
tilt in the Gator Bowl, which
is a win-lose scenario. The
good news is, Miami fans
won't have too far to travel.
The bad news, at least for
Jacksonville's economy, is
there are only a few
Hurricane fans who actually
show up to games, even
when they're at home.
The announced atten-
dance for Miami's game
against Virginia last
Saturday: 37,629. Pitiful. Just
pitiful.
Meanwhile, the site is
predicting the Outback Bowl
in Tampa to rescue the
Gators from Shreveport, La.,
and match them up against
Wisconsin, while Florida
State is projected to play
SNebraska in the Sports
: Champs Bowl in Orlando
Dec. 27. I guess anything
would be better than the
embarrassment of playing
your bowl game on that blue
, field in Boise, Idaho.

BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirates rebounded from
their season-opening loss to
Andrew Jackson to pick up their
first win of the season Friday night
at home. Fernandina Beach (1-1)
defeated the visiting West Nassau
Warriors 74-47.'
"I think the difference in the
game is we were just able to get
more shot opportunities,"
Fernandina Beach High School
boys varsity basketball coach Matt
Schreiber said. "I would have to
credit our defense for that.
"I think that we had more depth
than they did, so that enabled us,
especially in the second and third
quarters, to not only get more
opportunities but easier ones."

halftime. FBHS out-scored West
Nassau 23-11 in the third quarter.
The Warriors held their own in the
fourth, matching the Pirates' 13

"We're just about on schedule
as progress goes," Schreiber said.

be more consistent in some areas;
probably most importantly, shot
selection.
"I'm really happy with our
effort. This team has really been
fun to work with. They seem to
like to practice. They like to learn.
When a team has those qualities,
it's easier to improve."

Louisville


to play in


Gator Bowl

Mike Hartley, chairman of
the Toyota Gator Bowl, officially
extended an invitation to Tom
Jurich, athletic director of the
University of Louisville, to be the
Big East Conference represen-
tative in the Jan. 2 Toyota Gator
Bowl Classic where they will play
a representative from the Atlantic
Coast Conference.
The Cardinals moved to an
8-2, 4-2 record during their final
home game of the season which
resulted in a 41-17 win over Syra-
cuse on Saturday. Currently
ranked No. 16 in the AP poll and
No. 17 in the USA Today poll,
Louisville has one game remain-
ing against their last Big East
opponent of the season, the
University of Connecticut, which
will be played on Saturday.
The Louisville Cardinals will
be making their first visit to
Jacksonville for the 2006 Toyota
Gator Bowl. While the University
of Louisville is bowl eligible for
the eighth straight season, this
will be the first year they will par-
ticipate as a Big East represen-
tative.
Bobby Petrino is in his third
year as head coach of the Louis-
ville Cardinals. He was 20-5 in
his first two seasons and cap-
tured the 2004 Conference USA
and Liberty Bowl titles by going
11-1 overall and 8-0 in the league.
He was named the league's
coach of the year.
"Louisville is truly among the
greatest of football programs in
the country. The Cardinals have
had an outstanding season and
we are looking forward to an
exciting Bowl matchup in
Jacksonville," said Hartley.
"We're excited and proud to
accept an invitation to the Toyota
Gator Bowl," said Louisville Vice
President for Athletics Tom
Jurich. "It's a great privilege to
represent the Big East Confer-
ence in our initial season in the
league.
"I know our team and coach-
ing staff are looking forward to
the challenge of playing a strong
ACC representative in our eighth
straight bowl. I had an opportu-
nity to attend last year's Super
Bowl in Jacksonville and saw
first-hand how the city embraces
a big event and the enjoyment
so many visitors had. I know our
team and fans are looking for-
ward to a great experience in
Florida."
"We're really excited about
taking the University of Louis-
ville to the Gator Bowl," said
Petrino, who's making his third
straight bowl appearance. "The
Gator Bowl has an incredible his-
tory of putting on a first class
game. Having coached in the
NFL for three years in Jackson-
ville, I know our fans and players
will enjoy the city. I'm pleased
for our players who have put in
a tremendous amount of hard
work and this is a great reward
for them."
The 61st annual Toyota Gator
Bowl will be played Jan. 2 at
12:30 p.m. in Alltel Stadium.
Tickets and Bowl information
are available online at www.gator
bowl.com.
Tickets are $40 for the Gator

OUTDOORS






Red bass highlight annual Wyatt trout tourney


"We had a wonderful day of
fishing," Bruce Cromie said.
"Dennis Wyman and I found a
nice school of redfish in the
Amelia River the day before the
tournament started. However, on
the morning of the tournament,
several porpoise moved in and
began feeding on the redfish that
we had staked out. When the
porpoise finished feeding on the
redfish, we moved in close to the
oyster bar-clad shoreline and
cast live shrimp, rigged with
floats to the nervous school of
reds."
Typically redfish schools will
hold in water depths of less than
one foot of water to avoid area
porpoise. But porpoise will stake
out redfish schools and patiently
wait for the school to move into a
kill zone of 2-3 feet of water, and
evidently this school of Amelia
River reds made that fatal mis-
take.
"We really did not think that
those redfish would bite after
being attacked by the porpoise,"
Cromie said. "However, once we
had reached the shallow bar and
cast our live shrimp into the
school of reds, we began to hook
up with some of Amelia Island's
best fishing, shallow water red
fishing."
Cromie weighed in the largest
redfish, 6.8 pounds, during the
11llth annual Knox Wyatt
Memorial Trout Tournament
Wyman weighed in the second
largest redfish, weighing 5.8
pounds.
I fished with Norman Bray
and Jack Healan during the
morning falling tide at the mouth
of Egans Creek, where we
caught several 1- to 2-pound sea
trout while drifting live shrimp
deep under trout floats and cast-
ing minnow-type artificial lures.
However, when the tide had
left the marsh grasses, we decid-
ed it was time to hunt down a
school of redfish. Running far up
into the Bell's River, we staked
out a school of reds that was ,
holding close to a massive oys-
ter-clad shoreline.
In less than 15 minutes, we
had landed four nice redfish to 4
pounds; then the school spooked
and moved. By now the tide was
so low that we had tn get off the
flat and move to a deeper shore-
line.
"Did you see that redfish? It
nearly came out of the water,"
Healan said. "Get me in a little
closer to that shell bed so I can


Cast my live
7 shrimp to
that big red."
Healan
made a per-
fect cast and
was soon
watching a

with his live

OUTDOORS pushed the
OUTDOORS .live shrimp
up to the
surface and began chasing the
live bait around 'and around
Healan's float.
"Is that red ever going to take
my shrimp?" Healan asked. "I
think its stomach is full and it's
just teasing me!"
I have to omit that Healan was
very patient. Most red fishermen
would have jerked the float and
live shrimp clean out of the water
and over the boat by now.
However, patience did finally pay
off as the big red finally engulfed
the live shrimp.
"Get the net, Terry," Healan
said. "I think this red is much
larger than we anticipated!"
I had first told Healan just to
swing his catch into the boat;
however, a second look at his
hooked redfish prompted me to
collect the landing net and assist
in landing his hooked redfish.
A successful fight soon had
Healan's 5-pound redfish in our
boat, and it would be followed by
several fishtails of a redfish that
played a cat-and-mouse game
with Healan's live shrimp!
The largest sea trout caught
in the event was boated by Terry
D. Lacoss and weighed 3.8
pounds. Terry David was fishing
with Curt Sanders and Charles
Thomas earlier that morning and
was catching a lot of undersize
sea trout.
"We moved into a little deeper
water in front of the paper mill
and began catching larger trout,"
Terry David said. "I think it was
very apparent that the larger
trout were holding in deeper
water."
Terry David Lacoss, Sanders
and Thomas went on to win first-
place honors for sea trout aggre-
Bob Dickson took first place
in the largest sea trout category
for the Amelia Island Plantation
Fishing Club with a 2.1-pound
spotted sea trout.

Decal Art Contest. The winning

grams.
The contest is open to all mid-
dle school and high school stu-
dents who. attend public, private
or home schools in Florida. This
year is the first time high school
students are eligible to enter.
'This art project has been
very successful in encouraging
students to learn about manatees
and their role in Florida's envi-
ronment," said Bonnie Abellera,
manatee decal coordinator. "It's
great to see the artistic variety,
but the most rewarding thing for
us is seeing how interested kids
are in Florida's conservation
issues."
The FWC is accepting art-
work postmarked between Dec.
5 and Jan. 31 and there are spe-
cific entry requirements.
Students need to work through
their art teachers, who will sub-

Make way for manatees
Florida manatees are on the
move, seeking warmwater sites
to spend the winter. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission appealed to boaters
today to be especially cautious to
look out for manatees and be
alert to changing speed zones on
waterways.
Manatees generally start trav-
eling to warm water when the air
temperature drops below 50
degrees or when the water tem-
perature dips to 68 degrees.
The FWC said boaters should
scan the water near, and in front
of, their vessels for swirls resem-
bling large footprints, a repetitive
line of half-moon swirls, a mud
trail or manatee snouts or tails
breaking the surface.

According to the FWC,
boaters can help manatees have
a safe migration by staying in
marked channels, wearing polar-
ized sunglasses to improve
vision, abiding by posted boat
speed zones, using poles, pad-
dles or trolling motors when in
close proximity to manatees, and
having someone aboard to scan
the water for signs of manatees
while their vessels are under
way.

Exhibit

explores

Christmas

traditions
The Christmas cards get
sent, a kiss is stolen under-
neath the mistletoe, a Yule Log
is burned to warm hearts and
home. These are some of the
traditions of Christmas, but do
we know why or where these
customs came from?
A Royal Victorian Christmas
Exhibition, to be held Dec. 10
through Jan. 2 at the Hampton
Inn and Suites, Amelia Island,
19 S. Second St in Fernandina
Beach, will answer all of these
questions, shed light on more
Victorian-era Christmas cus-
toms, as well as feature a large
display of original antiques
from the life of Queen
Victoria, her ancestors and
her children.
The exhibition tells, with
narrative boards, the story of
how Queen Victoria and Prince
Albert influenced the
Christmas traditions we cele-
brate today, plus five delightful
displays of dolls and miniature
dioramas depicting Queen
Victoria's household enjoying a
"Right Royal Christmas!"
"The city of Fernandina
Beach was deeply influenced
by Queen Victoria's style," said
Sandy Price, special events
coordinator for the Amelia
Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee
Chamber of Commerce, in a
press release. "An exhibition
like this is a great opportunity
for children and adults to
broaden their knowledge of
why many of us practice cer-
tain traditions to celebrate
Christmas; it helps to bring
Amelia Island's past
Christmases to life."
Other facets of the exhibi-
tion include a large number of
original antique items from the
Georgian, Victorian and
Edwardian periods of English
history, consisting of original
uniforms, replica diamonds,
signed photographs, Georgian
Silver, Queen Victoria's origi-
nal Parasol and her miniature
Prayer book, to name a few.
Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 7
p.m., Monday through Sunday,
Dec. 10-Jan 2. The exhibition
will be closed on Christmas
Day and have limitnd-h6urs on' -
Christmas Eve and New Year's
Eve. Admission is $2 for adults,
$1 for senior citizens, student
are admitted free of charge.
The exhibitions have been
received "royally" by people in
87 countries as well as NATO

Bailey, a 6-month-old, tan,
female chihuahua, came to
Stars when her owner would-
n't keep her anymore. The
owner got Bailey because the
owner had eczema and was
told that if she got a chi-
huahua, the disease would
transfer to the dog, the dog
would die, and the owner
would never have eczema
again! I can imagine your
disbelief in reading this, but
it is true.
Bailey was in great need of
love and socialization. She is
making great strides and will
be ready for a new home in
2-3 weeks.
Her adult weight should be
about 8 pounds.

NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


Daisy was 6 weeks old
when she came into the care
of the Nassau Humane
Society on Sept. 15. She is
white, orange and black.
She is a very delicate kitten -
so soft and just wants to curl
up at your feet for the holi-
days.
Then we have Lita, the
Black Lab with a little Chow.
At least that is our best
guess, based on her beauti-
ful full coat. Lita is currently
in foster care. She is house-
trained, uses a dog door, sits
on command and walks well
on a lead. Her new home
should have a fenced yard
since she is energetic and
likes to run a couple times a
day. She is very affectionate
and loving.
You can visit either pet at
the shelter located on Amelia
Island at 671 Airport Road
today, Thursday or Friday.
On Saturday and Sunday the
humane society pets will be
at one of three different
Petsmart "Home for the
Holidays Adoption Days," so
the shelter will be closed.
St. Johns Town Center will
have dogs only, Orange Park


Petsmart will have cats only,
but the Regency Petsmart
will have cats and dogs look-
ing for a second home!
