Smoking in bed cited



as cause of house fire


SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
Part of a home at 518 S. Fifth St. was destroyed by a fire that
started about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. The rest of the
home had heavy smoke damage, said Fernandina Beach Fire
Marshal Jeffrey Bunch.


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Smoking in bed was cited as the
cause of an early-morning house
fire Tuesday that partly destroyed
a home. No one was injured.
Fernandina Beach Fire Marshal
Jeffrey Bunch said family members
told him the son of homeowner
Sarah Anne Williams started the
fire accidentally while smoking in
his bed about 5:30 a.m.
The fire, at 518 S. Fifth St, was
extinguished by Fernandina Beach
and Nassau County firefighters in
about 15 minutes, Bunch said.
Firefighters were still on the


scene at 8:15 a.m.
'"We've still got little hot spots,
but other wise it's out." Bunch said.
Bunch said a female family
member told firefighters how the
fire started.
"(She) said she kept telling him
to stop." Bunch said. According to
Bunch, the man at first tried to
extinguish the fire by himself using
a garden hose, and he moved the
burning mattress out of the house.
"It really just delayed us being
called." Bunch said. Firefighters
received the call about 5:45 a.m.
Once on the scene, Bunch said
firefighters had to enter through a
side door because a couch was


blocking the front door of the
home.
Williams' daughter, a
Jacksonville Woman who did not
want to give her name, said she
was visiting her mother when the
fire started.
"We really don't know what
she's going to do yet," she said of
her mother.
The American Red Cross is
available to assist the victims of:
house fires.
Bunch said he doesn't expect
any charges to be filed as a result of
the fire.
"It was just an accident," he said:

County makes


new blood' boil


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
News that the Nassau County
Commission filled a vacant plan-
ning board seat last week came as
a surprise to some of the 18 appli-
cants who applied for the position.
Earlier this year, the county
announced pending vacancies on
various county boards in local
newspapers in an effort to find
"new blood."
However. it's unclear if the 18
that responded were ever consid-


ered for the first of those vacan-
cies the District 1 Planning and
Zoning Board seat.
That went to former planning
board member John Stack, who
had already served eight years in
the same seat before resigning in
2002. He was not among those who
responded through the advertise-
ment, though his resume was
already on file with the county.
Stack was re-appointed by
District 1 Commissioner Jim B.

An officer with the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office will begin a
two-day, unpaid suspension from
duty today after an internal inves-
tigation into an Oct 8 accident that
resulted in the arrest of a former
detective for DUI.
Lt. Henry Martinez, 40,
responded to the accident but was
later accused of improperly con-
ducting the investigation.
According to sheriff's office doc-
uments, Martinez was originally
accused of failingn) to act on infor-
mation that the criminal violation of
DUI may have been committed ...
(and) failed to investigate the crash
as a criminal violation." He was also
investigated for allegedly violating
sheriff's policy and falsifying por-
tions of the crash report.

ALICE \'ALSH

Nicolaus Findeisen, a duke
born into an old European family
that traces its roots back to, the
13th century, has made a career
of creating and exhibiting exqui-
site replicas of Britain's Crown
Jewels and related historic treas-
ures of the monarchy.
Some of his Victorian treas-
ures will be on display locally
beginning Saturday. (Story, 8A)
Findeisen is also a musician
who played professionally for 25
years. "Our band in England
played pop, jazz some of every-
thing," he recalls. "In our first five
years we played for Prince
Charles, Princess Caroline's 21st
birthday party in Monaco, at
Margaret Thatcher's celebration
party when she won her cam-
paign and at many other elegant


functions."
Findeisen is a product of both
Europe and the U.S. Born in
Heidenheim, Germany, he
became a naturalized U.S. citizen
while still a child and was brought
up in Miami until 1953, when he
returned to Europe to continue
his education.
It was through his wife's occu-
pation as a designer that he
became interested in creating
replicas of British treasures.
Thoroughly British Suzan met
Findeisen in Turkey, where she
was working, and after their mar-
riage they moved to London and
began manufacturing scale minia-
tures, jewelry, etc., based on
Suzan's designs.
Because their clientele includ-
ed Windsor Castle, Harrods,
palaces in Scotland and such, they

Sheriffs investigator Sgt. Shawn
Mortimer found those allegations
to be unfounded, however he
added, and sustained, allegations
that Martinez was "negligent or in
'non-compliance with NCSO rules
and regulations" and that he was
"careless" in the performance of
his duties.
Martinez's suspension will
begin today at 6 p.m. and last until
Friday at 6 a.m.
Detective Mike Lee resigned
four days after the one-vehicle acci-
dent in which no one was injured.

During the holidays,
when parties and other
gatherings are at their
peak, we meet many
new people sometimes all at
once. While some people seem to
be born with an uncanny ability
to remember names, most of us
have to work at it. Here are some
little techniques that may help
you (and especially me) put faces
and names together the next
time you meet
1. Focus on the person. Pay
attention as you are introduced.
This sounds like a given, but so
often we are really not concen-
trating on the person as we are
introduced.
2. Verify. Repeat the name in
some way. If someone else has

introduced
you, ask
what the per-
son would
like to be
called. (It is
7= == r best to use
the person's
title, e.g., "Mrs. Smith," until or
unless the person asks you to use
his or her first name). Verifying
the name will not only cement the
name in your mind, but also
ensure that you are using the
name that pleases them.
3. Picture the name written
across their forehead. This is a
particularly powerful technique if
you visualize the name written in
your favorite color of Magic
Marker.
4. Try to associate the name
with an occupation, an object,
place, etc. Some names lend


themselves well to this, such as
Sheppard, Smith, Baker, Sharps,
Shipley, Hill, Robinson, Cross,
Price, and many more. All can be
connected to a visual image that
can be called up more easily than
a name and serve as a prompt.
Do this when you can.
5. Use it frequently. During
your conversation with a new
acquaintance, try to use the name
three or four times. Use it when
you first meet, when you ask a
question and in your departure.
"John, it's been a pleasure meet-
ing you."
6. Record the name in a "new
contacts" file. Sales representa-
tives do this, and include other
information such as where and
when they met. When you met
people that you are not likely to
see often, reviewing such a list
can be helpful when attending a


I


meeting or conference where you
will see these individuals again.
In spite of our efforts, we are
all going to have difficulty recall-
ing names now and then. We can
meet a person in one place and
circumstance, and when they
show up somewhere completely
different it can be hard to "place"
them. You can look for clues, or
just smile and say, "Good to see
you again," or be direct and say,
"I remember you well, but your
name has slipped my mind."
.Because of my own imperfect
memory, I am aware that others
may not be blessed with perfect
recall, either, so I always give my
name when I run into someone I
don't know well or see often -
and I am grateful when someone
does the same for me!

Lillian Brandies Quarles
Lillian Brandies Quarles, 93, passed away on Dec.
1, 2005, in Tallahassee.
With the exception of short stays in Sarasota and
Key West, Lillian lived most of her life in Callahan
until she was 84. She then moved to Jacksonville
and then Tallahassee.
She loved life and socializing with others. She
had worked several jobs, but most loved her years
managing the Callahan School Lunchroom.
Interacting with the students (and being able to
ensure they had a good meal) meant so much to
Lillian.
Her family believes she would like to be remem-
bered for her love for God the Father, His Son Jesus,
and the Holy Spirit, her family, church, and just

Love joins staff of


county commission


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Some familiar faces have
recently been hired to new posi-
tions in Nassau County govern-
ment.
Former deputy tax collector
Michael Love was recently hired
as the county commission's tech-
nical services manager. Love will
manage the county commission's
computers, upgrade its technolo-
gy and manage its web site,
human resources director Chili
Pope confirmed.
Hell function as a department
head and report directly to County
Administrator Mike Mahaney.
His position's salary pays
$50,000.
"Mike Love is a bright intelli-
gent guy that brings a significant
skill set to the position and will
be an asset for Nassau County,"
Mahaney said.
Love, 40, resigned as Tax
Collector Gwen Miller's chief
deputy in October after 14 months
on the job. He was replaced by
Neil Blalock, former downtown
businessman.
The equivalent of Love's new
position was formerly in the hands
of John Crowder. Crowder has
transferred to the building depart-
ment as support services direc-
tor.


Love


Lacambra


Crowder will oversee that
office's technology, including a
new Geographic Information
System (GIS) mapping software.
His salary is $52,000, and he
will report directly to county
Building Official Whitey Moran.
In the clerk of court's office,
Chris Lacambra was recently pro-
moted to a position as the county's
deputy comptroller. Formerly the
clerk's office accounting and pay-
roll supervisor, Lacambra officially
filled his new position in
September at a salary of $67,900.
Lacambra's new responsibili-
ties include oversight of all clerk
and county commission account-
ing and finance functions and
budgetary controls.
A certified public accountant
since 1993, Lacambra has worked
with the clerk's finance staff since
2001 and was formerly the Nassau
County School Board's chief
accountant.

COUNTY Continued from 1A
Higginbotham, and confirmed
by a unanimous vote of the com-
mission.
Stack's profession is commer-
cial real estate, and he will become
the third member of the seven-
member board with real estate busi-
ness interests.
Commissioner Marianne
Marshall voted to approve Stack's
appointment, but questioned
Higginbotham's choice in light of
"some very strong resumes" in
response to the ad.
Monday, some of the applicants
indicated they also were frustrated
the county apparently overlooked
them. Applicant Marjorie Weibe-
Reed, an architect from Fernandina
Beach, questioned whether the
application process was a "dog and
pony shbw."
"They pretty much knew who
they wanted for the job," she said.
Weibe-Reed also criticized the com-
mission for never contacting her
to confirm the county received her
resume.
"It's kind of like submitting a
resume to a black hole," she said.
"I've heard nothing."
That also didn't sit well with
Charlie Kicklighter, a former gen-
eral manager of an aircraft engine
company. He said the commission's
choice to fill the seat with an eight-
year member of the board was self-
preserving.
'To have them put someone else
on the board who's been there
before, rather than inject new
blood, says 'Hey, we're going to
protect ourselves and perpetuate
the system,'" he said.
Following is a list of those who
responded to the county's adver-
tisement.
Mark Bearwald, real estate,
reporter, former planning com-
missioner in Colorado
Stuart L Burnley, Fernandina

men for General Electric

SHRIFF Continued from A
charged with DUI.
According to sheriff's docu-
ments, Lee told Nassau County
SheriffTommy Seagraves that he
had gone to Jacksonville the night
before the accident, which
occurred about 2:50 a.m. He was
reportedly driving his assigned
county vehicle, and told Seagraves
he'd had "eight or nine" alcoholic
drinks while celebrating a suc-
cessful undercover drug buy.
Sheriffs Capt. Eric Lowe told
Mortimer he found several dis-
crepancies in Martinez's report
on the accident, including all of
Lee's personal information and
other "pertinent information
about (the) crash."
The report indicated no drug
or alcohol test had been done,
although a test was conducted at
Baptist Medical Center Nassau,


and the report "listed that ... Lee
had not been drinking or using
drugs," according to Mortimer's
report.
Mortimer also upheld an alle-
gation that Lee failed to immedi-
ately report the accident.
Lee contacted his partner,
detective Jonathon Hooper, about
1:45 a.m. and asked Hooper to
help him get his vehicle out of
the ditch, according to docu-
ments. Hooper then called
Martinez, but according to the
crash report, official notification of
the report to an officer was not
made until 3:11 a.m.
Martinez, a 12-year veteran, is
the only current sheriffs employ-
ee to be disciplined in connection
with the case. The Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
is currently reviewing the inves-
tigation.

'Very little danger' of



local real estate bust.


Here is a rendering of Spyglass H, the newest development on
Amelia Island Plantation.


Builder Sales & Marketing
Director Mary Anne Hashem
said in a press release..
Cape Sound will offer three
floor plan designs ranging from
1,992 square feet with three bed-
rooms and two.bathrooms to over
2,780 square feet with three bed-
rooms, three-and-a-half baths and
an elevator standard in the two
larger plans. Homes at Cape
Sound are priced from the mid-


$500s.
Cape Sound, a community by
Dallas-based Allegiance
Development, will have 18 two
and three-story buildings featur-
ing a native Florida architectural
style including different shades
of pastel wood siding, metal
roofs, large porches and two-car
garages for each residence locat-
ed at the rear of the building. The
buildings are being constructed-
around a two-and-a-half-acre
spring-fed lake with boardwalk
and gazebo. Cape Sound will
have a controlled access gated
entry with a decorative stucco
wall around the perimeter.
The sales center is open
Monday through Saturday from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays
'from noon to 5 p.m. For more
information about Cape Sound,
visit www.capesoundcondos.com
or call Suzanne Cash and Jane
Vestal at the Cape Sound sales
center at 261-1810.


The real-estate boom
will continue around
North Florida. And
predictions of an ensu-
ing bust will fizzle.
According to a report from
National Association of Realtors'
research division, the
Jacksonville metropolitan area
will continue to flourish. The rea-
sons are many: the coast, the
easy access to a major airport,
the restaurants and museums,
the vibrancy of the city and its
upscale neighborhoods.
.Such factors were quoted in
the report, "Home Price
Analysis for Jacksonville," which
was released about a month ago.
In summary, the report says
"there is very little danger" of a
housing bust in and around
Jacksonville. This is based on a
thorough analysis.
"In fact, the local housing
market is in excellent shape with
a potential for significant hous-
ing equity gains ...," the report
indicated. The Jacksonville met-
ropolitan area can include
perimeter regions such as
Nassau County.
Claims of a housing bubble,
or bust, have dominated head-
lines after a phenomenal run-up
in real estate prices across the
U.S. One of the linchpins of the
"bubble theory" is that housing
prices have risen faster than
incomes. This means that people
cannot afford as much in terms
of housing.

STEVE'S

PLACE


However,
the creativity
of the mort-'
gage indus-
try has kept
the financing
fire burning.
SInterest-only
loans as well
as other
hybrid mort-
gages have
given home-
buyers addi-,
tional lever-
age.
An advan-
tage of the
local market


is that the average price of a
house is $166,000, which is 20
percent below the national aver-
age. In addition, housing prices
had been relatively flat around
here for much of the 1990s, leav-
ing room for appreciation in a
"catch-up effect"
The average home price rose
14.9 percent in 2004 in the
Jacksonville area and 42 per-
cent over the last three years. In
some places, such as Amelia
Island, prices have increased at
least this much, if not more.
Substantial job growth has
helped the Jacksonville real-
estate market and will continue
to do so in the future. The
region has added an estimated
80,000 new houses in the past
five years.
The future looks even


brighter. Estimates are for
10,000 to 20,000 houses to be
built in coming years in Nassau
County alone. Job growth feeds
the construction of new homes.
The report delved into the
hybrid-type mortgages that have
become popular. Interest-only
loans made up about one-fourth
of the loans in the Jacksonville
area, while adjustable-rate mort-
gages accounted for 40 percent
'Therefore, some homeown-
ers could feel the pinch of high-
er rates over time," according to
the research report
The Jacksonville area would
experience a 5 percent decline in
average housing prices only
under "extreme unlikely scenar-
ios," the report stated. An exam-
ple of an adverse scenario would
be interest rates spiking to
around 16 percent, and job loss-
es in the range pf 12,000. This
scenario is again unlikely, by
most accounts. !
In contrast, the Jacksonville
area is forecasted to create
another 30,000 jobs over the
next two years, and mortgage
rates should hover around 7 per-
cent. The local market will likely
appreciate at "above-normal"
rates because of the strong job
growth, the natural beauty and
appeal, as well as the influx of
retirees who are attracted to the
area.
Steve Nicklas is a financial
adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.


Consumer confidence rebounds


University of Florida
Optimism about falling gas
prices caused Florida's consumer
confidence in November to
rebound, University of Florida
economists report.
The biggest gain was a 10-point
increase in perceptions of buying
conditions. Perceptions of short-
term U.S. business conditions rose
six points; perceptions of person-
al finances now compare .h a
year.ago rose two points; and
expectations about '"personal
finances a year from now rose one


point. Perceptions of long-term
business conditions remained
unchanged.
"The rise in consumer confi-
dence in November came as some-
what of a surprise," said Chris
McCarty, director of the survey
research center at UF's Bureau of
Economic and Business Research.
'"The rise appears to be due to
recent declines in gasoline prices,
'which have fallen steadily since
t,,j, t,ieg ning of October."
Although a decline in gas
prices is typical following the'
Labor Day weekend, this second
decline has been caused by a
combination of increased supply
from refineries that were damaged
by Hurricane Katrina, lower crude
oil prices worldwide afid reduced
demand from American con-
sumers, some of whom'have
adjusted their fuel consumption
after record prices this summer,
McCarty said. But fuel prices are
expected to edge higher as cooler
weather once again raises
demand, he -said.
"Lower gasoline prices and ris-


ing consumer confidence come
just in time for retailers who are
gearing up for the holiday shop-
ping season," McCarty said.
Recent estimates of retail sales
have been positive, with sales,
excluding autos and gasoline, up
1.1 percent over the previous
month, he said.
"This bodes well for Florida
retailers, who may have a better
holiday shopping season than was
originally anticipated," he said.
'"Nationally. the situation may be
much different as cold weather
sets in and still high energy prices
force consumers to choose
between heat and gift giving."
Some negative influences are
looming that could hurt buying
plans, McCarty said. Highest on
the list are rising interest rates,
which impacted refinancing and
home equity rates, he said.
"Recent holiday shopping sea-
sons have been in no small part
fueled by home equity loans and
lines of credit," he said. "Far fewer
consumers have that as a resource
this year compared to last year."

OPINION


WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 7.2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Crane Island noise
Approving a problem as obvi-
ous as Crane Island's development
is foolhardy and ultimately very
expensive.
A simple search on the Internet
will show what a significant prob-
lem and expense airport noise has
become. In most communities,
noise-impacted homes are being
purchased and torn down, not con-
structed.
Noise easements are nothing
more than the developers' way to
placate objectors, enabling them
to build homes adjacent to the air-
ports. The reality is noise ease-
ments don't work. No one spends
millions on a home to listen to low-
flying aircraft. The owners will com-
plain loudly to anyone who will lis-
ten, including commissioners,
legislators, etc. They will hire attor-
_neys and attempt to restrict or dose
runways. They also will oppose any
future airport improvements that
might bring more traffic over their
homes. The owners may even peti-
tion or sue the governing bodies
that approved the development,
demanding their noise-impacted
homes be purchased back. The
proposed Crane Island develop-
ment will become a major expense
and headache to local officials.
If the Crane Island developers
really believe the easements will
work, they should post a bond suf-
ficient to purchase any home where
the owner complains about noise.
$30 million should be enough to
protect the local governments.
The developers should also
escrow the future taxes they are


promising the development will
generate. This way, the local gov-
ernments will be protected when
the homeowners do seek a buy-
but, or attempt to lower their tax
assessments due to undesirable
noise.

Planning for drainage
There has been a consistent
short-sightedness of the Fernan-
dina Beach City Commission in
regard to the growing voter con-
stituency of the "suburbs" south of
Sadler Road that has not been
shared by commercial developers.
"Downtown" will be feeling this
political/economic shift in the near
term. As it will the broader
drainage problems our suburbs are
creating.
I personally treasure "down-
town" Fernandina, Centre Street,
the historic district, ithe marina,
Sixth Street, etc., as our major com-
munity asset. "Development" is
about to change this focus, I fear, in
more than economic impact.
City planning concepts have to
include retaining "downtown" as a
community focus, not just as a
tourist-attraction focus. -
While our primary develop-
mental problem remains drainage,
this notion has been totally lost by
the "downtown" political/econom-
ic interests. Everything, both north
and south of Sadler, is endangered.
The entirety of our economic,
life, island-wide, is endangered if
the drainage issue raised by Sadler
Road development is not consid-

ered.
If our Amelia Island communi-
ty has any notion of surviving as a
barrier island we have to unite all
of our relatively short-sighted
parochial interests into a primary
concern for drainage, using that as
the basis, and the starting point,
for other developmental argu-
ments, which are really quite sec-
ondary. Take New Orleans as only
one example of the lack of drainage
planning.
Certainly, this is an issue that
our entire community can unite on
by just politically asserting our-
selves to have drainage issues put
back on the agenda in all develop-
ment considerations.

Increased taxes


are killing


small business

Can you imagine for a moment Amelia Island
without any small businesses on it? No local
retailers, restaurants, lawn care services, electri-
cians, plumbers, print shops or newspapers?
Hard to believe, but that very well could hap-
pen unless business owners and our elected offi-
cials wake up. I'm talking about the ridiculous
escalation of property taxes
forcing small local business-
es out of the community.
Once again the property
Where the News-Leader has
resided since the 1950s, 511
Ash Street in Fernandina
Beach, has been reassessed
by the Nassau County prop-
erty appraiser.
The last reassessment,
Foy Maloy, five or six years ago, jumped
y the assessment by 50 per-
Publisher cent. This time the assess-
... ment increased more than 86
percent, or an instaintgneous -
tax increase of ovefi-6 p- ..
cent for 2006.
Elected officials and the Nassau County
Property Appraiser's Office act as if this is just
standard operating procedure, that it is normal.
Normal?"
It is difficult to imagine a 60 percent increase
in anything in one year as normal, except maybe
gasoline.
I haven't increased the size of my building,
remodeled or improved the property in any way.
For my tax increase what do I get? Nothing.
No increased or improved services, only the
warm satisfaction of having a small business
located on Amelia Island. Which for a lot of small
businesses is becoming a luxury that can no
longer be justified.
What would happen if I.increased the newspa-
per's subscription price or advertising rates by 60
percent next year? The result would be fewer sub-
scribers, fewer readers and fewer customers -
not a very smart business strategy. Yet that men-
tality appears to be just fine with local govern-
ment.
Our elected officials deny they have increased
taxes. They beat their chest and brag that they
have held taxes at bay or that they have rolled
back the millage rate while tax increases strangle
small business in our community.
Escalating property values and former agricul-
tural property now commercially developed has
generated a windfall for the county. The only way
our elected officials cannot increase property
taxes is to roll back the millage rate equal to the
property value reassessment Why should estab-
lished local businesses and residents be penal-
ized?
What does the 60 percent property tax
increase mean to my business? Well, it could
mean not purchasing new equipment, or not hir-
ing additional staff, or not being able to continue
the number and volume of contributions to non-
profits in our community as in the past. Or worse
yet, having to reduce the size of the newspaper
or, heaven forbid, cutting staff.
Elected officials must realize what this type of
uncontrolled tax increase will do to our communi-
ty. It will kill small business. Could Amelia Island
one day have no small businesses to serve the
residents? Just multi million-dollar homes, condos
and national chain stores?
I hope not.
So please, shop and dine locally so your small
local businesses can pay their escalating property
taxes and stay in business.

F ernandina Beach city commissioners are
searching for a new city manager and there
seems to be no shortage of people and
groups advising them on what to do, when
to do it and how to go about it Well, throw me in the
mix.
In my 21 years on the commission I served with
eight city managers and participated in six searches.
The following are some truisms, at least in my opin-
ion, I've picked up along the way:
1. It takes a strange person to be a professional
city manager. A professional city manager is one
who's academically trained to be that and has never
worked in another profession.
*. 2. We tend to have better success hiring man-
agers who've come from outside the profession.
3. Fernandina Beach has experienced three
decades of unprecedented growth, and, consequent-
ly, a number of competing interest groups repre-
senting different views as to quality of life issues -
have emerged, each with unrestricted access to the
commission as a whole, and to commissioners indi-
vidually.
4. This competitive environment creates a
"push-pull" effect that occasionally spills over into
commission-manager relations.
5. Given numbers 3 and 4, a political atmos-
phere has evolved that can only be described as
"highly charged."
6. Given number 5, all applicants should have a
clear understanding that our city hall is the political
equivalent of "The Swamp," the University of
Florida's football field, in that it's a tough place to
play.
I am convinced that it does, indeed, take a
strange person to be a professional city manager.
Most of us seek job security and a stable environ-
ment for our families and ourselves. A city manager
in the state of Florida, however, can expect to stay on
the job an average of six years, so says the commis-
sioner's consultant, a figure up considerably from
the two- to three-year stay reported by the Florida
League of Cities only several years earlier.
Just wait, each current professional city manager
applicant will have been previously fired at least
once, some two or three times. Wouldn't that history
of occupational uncertainty tend to make a manager
a little tentative when it comes to policy recommen-
dations and implementation? I think so.


W while the 503rd Military Police Battalion
(Airborne) was in Baghdad, they were
responsible for running the Iraqi
Highway Patrol Academy in Taji. In
the middle of June, I joined the 503rd MP battalion,
leaving my unit that was at Taji. A couple weeks
after moving to Baghdad, I went with personnel

As we drove south on Tampa, we went under an
overpass and immediately saw two tanks and a
white SUV stopped in the road ahead of us with two
Iraqi men standing next to the vehicle and a couple
of U.S. soldiers running to the vehicle. The Iraqis

these, jobs are the most visible item since they
affect the well being of all. ge

THE NO persuaded Ferris Jones, a for-
'SPIN' ZONE mer manager at the local
Rayonier mill, to take the job.
After Mr. Jones, the commission hired Larry Myers,
a retiree from the U.S. Navy.
All three managers, Courtney, Jones and Myers,
had fairly lengthy stays, and all three came from
other professions.
Whether the commission focuses on a profession-
al city manager or a manger from another field, that
individual must understand and be able to work with-
in the political climate in Fernandina Beach. For it
has been, at least in my opinion, a failure to under-
stand that climate and an inability to work within it
that has led to the problems we've experienced in
keeping a city manager long-term.
For over 30 years our city has been trying
valiantly to protect and preserve our unique quality
of life in the face of, at times, overwhelming growth-
related pressure. This almost constant turmoil has
fostered the formation of numerous competing inter-
est groups, with unlimited access to city commis-
sioners.
A true believer in pluralism, like myself, sees the
above co-mingling of elected individuals, the citizen-
ry and interest groups as a wonderful thing; the epit-
ome of democracy. A city manager might view it as
disaster. "How does one create and implement poli-
cy," the manager might say, "in such a hyper-pluralis-
tic cauldron?"
Indeed, the competitive nature of these various
interest groups has created a "push-pull" effect with-
in the commission. Individual members are

then "pulled" in the other direction by a competing
group.
What's the result of this political tug-of-war? Well,
1) the commission, intimidated by the political risk
of actually having to make a decision, does nothing -
gridlock, or 2) the commission blames the manager.
When will the turmoil subside? When will this
highly-charged political atmosphere cool? Well, and
I'll modify the picturesque phrasing of my developer
friend, "Not until people like yourself (preservation-
ists) get off the track, or are run over by the train
(progress, as a developer defines it)." In other
words, not until this community has completely tran-
sitioned from a working community to a resort
attraction. So I hope the turmoil continues for quite
some time.
Well, given the above, just what kind of person
should the commission be looking for? In my opin-
ion they should be looking for a person that:
Has management experience in another field.
Understands the political climate in Fernandina
Beach and is willing to work within it
Understands the opportunities and problems
associated with a community trying to keep its
uniqueness and identity in the face of unprecedented
growth.
Understands the nature of competing interest
groups and views these groups as a positive rather
than a negative.
Possesses the absolutely essential character
traits of honesty, integrity and professional and per-
sonal ethics.
Has demonstrated superior leadership skills,
possesses a strong work ethic and an ability to get
things done.
Is a visionary.
If the commission finds this person, that individ-
ual can stay here as city manager for as long as that
person desires.
I wish them well.

are frequently part-time, low paying, hourly jobs,
without much of a chance for promotion, and many
are without any insurance, retirement or health ben-
efits. This often means that even full-time employ-
ment in tourism may be insufficient to provide a
decent living or to significantly reduce governmental
social transfer payments such as food stamps, and
other sub poverty level programs to these employ-
ees.
In the restaurant industry, waiters/waitresses are
paid significantly less than the federal minimum
wage regulations because the industry has a waiver
from these wage requirements that all other indus-
tries must meet. This is because these employees
receive gratuities from customers, and the waiver
permits the employer to gain "credit" for that form of
non- payroll compensation, and thus reduce their
payroll qosts accordingly. Additionally, salaried jobs
are also relatively low paying in comparison to those
offered in mining and manufacturing.
Local tourism employers like these facts because
there is usually an ongoing local demand for their
jobs, and trade organizations, such as hotel and
restaurant associations, often characterize their
members' low wage job creation as the alternative to
no employment at all.
The competitive nature of tourism destinations,
and the capital and operating requirements of the
tourism industry, along with the availability of
unskilled local populations, are frequently cited as
the reasons that the tourism business cannot alter
either tourism demand, or the wages in tourism
employment Given these issues, how should we
address the employment equity and conditions of
our local workers in the tourism industry?
I believe that it is necessary for us to form a work-
ing party tourism policy study group, comprising
enlightened public officials from city and county gov-
ernment, and private sector business interests, along
with representation from the local community. This
is a time-consuming and difficult task. It will take
serious community effort to bring such a group
together. It will be controversial, and is not a task for
the faint of heart. However, if done with the goal of
helping to recognize the increasing importance of
tourism and to improve employment in our commu-
nity, it is better than drifting into our future, and then
complaining about the inevitably unsatisfactory
social and economic outcomes.

A Victorian seaside Christmas arrives


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach owes much
of its charm to the influence of the
Victorian era, and the romance of
that period can still be enjoyed in
the architecture of our historical
district and many of our Christmas
customs.
This season we can celebrate
the English contribution to our her-
itage with a spectacular three-week
exhibition from the life and times
of Queen Victoria and the royal
Christmas of that period. A joint
project of the Historic Fernandina
Business Association and the
Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-
Yulee Chamber of Commerce, the
exhibition will be at the Hampton
Inn and Suites on South Second
Street Saturday through Jan. 2.
"It's truly a fascinating exhibit,


and very educational," said Sandy
Price, special events coordinator
for the chamber.
"It's mind-boggling to see the
history that has been handed down
through the ages, and we hope
that students as well as adults will
take advantage of this opportunity."
The display will focus on the
years of Queen Victoria's 21-year
marriage to Prince Albert, who
introduced her to many new ideas,
including for the celebration of
Christmas as he knew it in
Germany. Among these ideas were
the ancient German tradition of
bringing a fir tree into the home,
decorating it with candles, fruit,
nuts and small gifts, nutcracker
soldiers and much more. (Queen
Victoria outlived her husband by
40 years, and reigned for a total of
63 years.)
It was during the reign of


Queen Victoria that the first postal
system and postal stamps were
introduced, and due to this regular
postal system the first Christmas
cards were created and sent.
The exhibition contains exact
replicas of many of the Crown
Jewels worn by Queen Victoria just
as they were originally, including
the exquisite little diamond crown
that she had made later in her life.
The Crown Jewels themselves can
never leave Britain and are kept
in the Tower of London. *
A selection of personal items,
such as one of the queen's para-
sols, jubilee plate, cup and saucer,
signed pictures and gold decorat-
ed prints are included, as well a
glimpse of the military with the
weapons and medals from the wars
of that period.
The exhibitions have been pre-
sented in more than 87 countries


and the entire collection is enor-
mous possibly the largest of its
kind in the world. It has been
designed into groups so that it can
be tailored to fit virtually any
venue.
Nicolaus and Sue Findeisen,
owners of the collection who pre-
sented the proposal for the exhi-
bition to the Chamber of
Commerce, host the self-guided
tour. They will be present to
answer questions and offer assis-
tance during the tours. Nicolaus, a
duke from Europe, is a consult-
ant/expert for BBC America on
matters relating to royalty. He was
the royal Crown Jewel historian,
along with official jeweler David
Thomas, on a BBC special that was
shown in London on Nov. 20 this
year.
'We had hoped to be able to
present this as a gift to the com-


munity completely free of charge,
and there have been a number of
generous sponsors," said Price.
"However, we find that we must
charge a nominal fee of $2 for
adults and $1 for senior citizens."
Students will be admitted free.

Adopt-A-Family seeks sponsors


ALICE WALSH/NEWS-LEADER
Sharon Shanks of Yulee and
her three children are benefi-
ciaries of the Adopt-A-Family
Program, sponsored by the
Nassau County Volunteer
Center.


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

Sharon Shanks and her three
children, ages 9, 7 and 5, were
among the 370 needy families who
enjoyed a happy Christmas last
year, thanks to the Adopt-A-Family
program of the Nassau County
Volunteer Center.
"Christmas was coming and I
was worried," said Shanks. "I was-
n't working then and wondered
how I could get anything at all for
the children.
"Then my sister told me about
the Barnabas Center, and I went
there, and was told to make out a
list of the things we would like to
have for Christmas. I was hoping


for something that would help,"
Shanks recalled.
"Well, the results were just
amazing. When I opened the boxes
that were delivered I discovered
that everything I had asked for
was there: a bicycle-for my
youngest, games, educational
books, a Barbie doll, clothes, a
towel set and much more."
Shanks has a part-time job now,
at the Cathedral Gerontology
Center, a nursing home in down-
town Jacksonville. She works on
weekends. "The nursing home
allows me to take my children with
me," she explained. Her eyes light
up with pride, "They are good kids
and behave well. I take education-
al books for them to read while I


am working."
It is obvious that the small, very
neat mobile home is filled with love
and caring. All that is needed now
are some gifts under the tree to
make the holiday brighter.
"The money I make all goes to
pay bills, and there is nothing left
over for anything else. So, I signed
up again this year for Adopt-A-
Family. It is an excellent program,
and I hope they will continue in
the future to help others. It's truly
a blessing to families that need
help," said Shanks.
Gail Shultz, head of the volun-
teer center, adds, "Over the years
so many have been helped, due to

Sour side


of sugar?

University ofFlorida

Suddenly sugar isn't looking so
sweet.
University of Florida research-
ers have identified one possible rea-
son for rising obesity rat-s, and it'all
starts with fructose, found in fruit,
honey, table sugar and other sweet-
eners, and in processed foods.
Fructose may trick you into
thinking you are hungrier than you
should be, say the scientists, whose
studies in animals have revealed
its role in a biochemical chain reac-
tion that triggers weight gain and
other features of metabolic syn-
drome the main precursor to type
2 diabetes. In related research, they
also prevented rats from packing
on the pounds by interrupting the
way their bodies processed this
simple sugar, even when the ani-
mals continued to consume it.
The findings, reported in the
December issue of Nature Clinical
Practice Nephrology and in this
month's online edition of the
American Journal of Physiology-
Renal Physiology, add to growing
evidence implicating fructose in the
obesity epidemic and could influ-
ence future dietary guidelines. UF
researchers are now studying
whether the same mechanism is
involved in people.
'"There may be more than just
the common concept that the rea-
son a person gets fat is because
they eat too many calories and they
don't do enough exercise," said Dr.
Richard J. Johnson at UF's College
of Medicine. "Our data suggest cer-
tain foods and, in particular, fruc-
tose, may speed the process for a
person to become obese."
Physical inactivity, increased
caloric intake and consumption of
high-fat foods account for part of
the problem, Johnson said. But
Americans are feasting on more
fructose than ever. It's in soft
drinks, jellies, pastries, ketchup
and table sugar, among others, and
is the key component in high-fruc-
tose corn syrup, a sugar substitute
introduced in the early 1970s.
Since then, fructose intake has
soared more than 30 percent, and
the number of people with meta-
bolic syndrome has more than dou-
bled worldwide, to more than 55
million in the United States alone,
Johnson said.

17 seek city manager job so far


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Seventeen prospects have
applied for the Fernandina Beach
city manager position before the
Friday deadline.
"There's some good people in
that group," consultant Colin
Baenziger said, adding he expects
five or six of the applicants to have
charter government experience.
Commissioners will narrow the
list of candidates in late December
and begin meeting with the final
five or six on Jan. 13.
That afternoon candidates, who
may bring their spouse, will tour
the city with a city staff member
and with a real estate agent. That
evening, a public social event will
give the commission an opportu-
nity "to see how candidates inter-


act with the public," Baenziger
said. "You want someone who's
comfortable socially."
One-on-one interviews with the
commission begin Saturday, Jan.
14 at 8:30 a.m. The public is invit-
ed to attend afternoon interviews
as each candidate meets individu-
ally before the full commission.
The vote to select the manager
is scheduled for Monday evening,
Jan. 16. The commission will then
negotiate salary and benefits.
City manager salaries have his-
torically been too low, resident Ele
Colborn said.
"I think the city manager
should make more than any other
city employee," she said. If the
manager "goofs on one grant, it's
a lot more than $10,000 or
$12,000."
Baenziger, who lives in Palm


Beach County, worked as a city
manager before becoming a con-
sultant
He said he looks for longevity in
a candidate but is careful about
long-tenured managers who may
have a hard time adapting to a new
commission.
One such candidate proved to
be his only disappointment
"I thought he'd be perfect,"
Baenziger said. "He lasted eight
months" because "he wasn't used
to people looking over his shoul-
der."
Baenziger, who attended
Cornell University's business
school, said the question, "Who
would you pick?" is one commis-
sioners ask that he prefers not to
answer.
But, "Usually I can figure out
who they're going to pick," he said.

The nature of Amelia:


defending a diamondback


Often when I leave a day's
work at Kayak Amelia
near Little Talbot State
Park, instead of driving
north on A1A back to Amelia
Island, first I head south. Only a
few miles further down is the
entrance to another peaceful
world, the narrow asphalt and
dirt road of Fort George Island.
No matter how often I take this
side road, there is always some-
thing different to observe.
Take the time I saw a dia-

instance. There were still some

the road amid

maybe even a small deer.
Certainly its venom packed
enough quantity and punch to kill
a person and I had no intention of
getting close to it, however much
I admired its beauty. As frighten-
ing as this snake was, I was
delighted to see it, and to know
that with the combined efforts of
the state and federal government,
enough area has been preserved
to ensure its continued survival.
i The only other snake I've eyer
seen in the wild that instilled as
much awe and fear in me was a
king cobra, 15 feet or more long,
lying along a riverbank in
Thailand that I was surveying for
otters. That snake was on the
opposite bank of the river, but
still terrifying to me, and to the
Thai rangers guiding me, too. As


was the case with the king cobra,
I had no intention of disturbing
this king of rattlesnakes, but only
to admire it from a safe and
secure distance.
But then, coming towards me
was another car, heading right .
towards the snake. Without a sec-
ond thought, I jumped out of my
car, and worked my way carefully
around the tail end of the
stretched out snake, and ran
towards the approaching car, to
stop it. I'm positive had I not done
this, this king of snakes would be
just another road kill. It deserved
to keep living. If a wild beauty
like this one cannot live on public
park land, where could it?
The fishermen in the
approaching car did stop, and we
all watched the snake, now dis-
turbed, slither off to the side of
the road, invisible again. I
remember a wildlife class at the
University of Florida long ago,
where our group of grad students
went on a field trip to see a radio-
tagged large diamondback snake.
The researcher used his teleme-,
"try'tifitto track the beeps of the'
snake, and despite its proximity
to all of us, no one saw it until we
were almost on top of it. Amazing
how such a large animal can hide
from sight.
It's a good thing, too. If rat-
tlesnakes were often out in the
open, they would by now be seen

only in pictures. Most people
think the only good rattlesnake is
a dead one, and especially one
whose skin they can display on
their wall. Lots of stories abound
in the Fort George area of people
who have killed large rat-
tlesnakes in their yards. One
large rattlesnake skin hangs on
the wall at BarZ near the Mayport
ferry terminal just a half mile or
so from where I saw "my" dia-
mondback. In many western
states, organized rattlesnake
hunts are a fun activity for all con-
cerned except for the snakes -
and in some casegsare driving the
snakes to near extinction.
Why should we care if dia-
mondback rattlers go extinct?
For me, it boils down to a matter
of biodiversity conservation. To
me, the quality of life lies with a
remaining abundance of different
types of plants and animals, and
, the chance of seeing something
new and different every day. All
forms of life are necessary for the
health of the combined network
of the earth's ecolpgy..,,,,,, ,,;
Even rattlesnakes have a
role to play and, although I don't
play with them, I'm glad they're

Reaching out on World AIDS Day

GLENDA S. JENKINS --...


Health professionals, advocates
and community supporters gath-
ered Thursday in Yulee to observe
World AIDS Day.
The group remembered all
those who have died from the dis-
ease and recommitted themselves
to preventing and slowing new
cases of HIV, the virus that causes
AIDS.
Healing BALM of Northeast
Florida, a nonprofit organization
that conducts health education
programs through community out-
reach, coordinated the luncheon.
The event focused on Healing
BALM's goal of "Building a
Community of Hope and Action."
HIV/AIDS cases locally reflect
the demographic pattern national-
ly and around the world, said Dr.
Eugenia Ngo-Seidel, director of
the Nassau County Health
Department.
In Nassau County, African-
Americans account for 7 percent
of the population and 40 percent of
HIV and AIDS cases, she said.
In addition to the dispropor-
tionate number of "people of color"
infected, the number of transmis-
sions among heterosexuals, youth
and women has also risen, she
said.
Of the nearly 12,000 HIV cases
reported in Florida through 2004,
three out of four, or about 71 per-
cent, were African-American
women, Seidel said.
In the past blood transfusions,
homosexual contact and intra-
venous drug use were largely
responsible for the virus' trans-
mission. But today, "Women are
becoming more and more impact-
ed by this disease... through het-
erosexual contact," she said.
"We've got to reach out to men"
to prevent them from spreading
sexually transmitted diseases
(STDs) like HIV, said Kim
Geib, the health department's epi-
demiology nurse for HIV pro-
grams.
"We feel like males are under-
reported for HIV and STDs"


'We have so many
people who are still
living with that stigma.
And we want to help
them out. We're not
in judgment.'
HEALING BALM
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
MARY CALHOUN


because they "don't tend to go to
the doctor until there's a problem,"
Geib said. "They're not getting
identified and tested."
That endangers heterosexual
women. According to the
World Health Organization, HIV
rates among women are higher in
places where the transmission is
predominately heterosexual, she
said.
Demographics have changed,
but progress has been made in
treating the disease. Patients are
living longer.
"But it's a double-edge sword,"
Seidel said. "As people see this as
a normal disease" they become
less concerned about prevention.
"A third of the people living with
HIV don't even know it," Seidel
said.
Healing BALM Executive
Director Mary Calhoun said
that shame still prevents people
with HIV from telling their
stories and helping to educate the
public.
"We have so many people who
are still living with that stigma.
And we want to help them out,"
Calhoun said. "We're not in judg-
ment."
Pastors have the ability to
empower members of their con-
gregation with life-saving infor-
mation.
"You have the attention of your
people when you stand in that pul-
pit," she said. "God is concerned
with the total man."

on Jan. 8

WASHINGTON The
Governors of the U.S. Postal
Service have voted to accept the
Postal Rate Commission's rec-
ommendations to increase most
postal rates and fees by approx-
imately 5.4 percent across-the-,
board to take effect Jan. 8.
The rate increase the first
since 2002 is needed to fulfill
the requirement of a federal law
passed in 2003. That law
requires the Postal Service to
establish a $3.1 billion escrow
account, with use of the funds to
be determined by Congress at a
later date. Without this federal
mandate, it would not have been
necessary to raise rates in 2006.
Among the rate adjustments,
the single-piece rate for First-
Class Mail will increase from 37
cents to 39 cents, and the post-
card rate will increase by one
cent to 24 cents.
International rates, which are
determined separately from
domestic prices, will be adjusted
to coincide with the domestic
rate changes. International rates
have not been adjusted since
January 2001.
Since 1775, the Postal Service
and its predecessor, the Post
Office Department, has con-
nected friends, families, neigh-
bors and businesses by mail. It
is an independent federal agency
that visits 143 million homes and
businesses every day, six days a
week and is the only service
provider delivering to every
address in the nation.
The Postal Service receives
no taxpayer dollars for routine
operations, but derives its oper-
ating revenues solely from the
sale of postage, products and
services. With annual revenues
of more than $69 billion, it is the ,
world's leading provider of mail-
ing and delivery services, offer-
ing some of the most affordable
postage rates in the world.
The Postal Service delivers
more than 46 percent of the
world's mail volume some 206
billion letters, advertisements,
periodicals and packages a year
- and serves seven and a half
million customers each day at
its 37,000 retail locations nation-
wide. Its web site, usps.com,
attracts more than 21 million vi-.
itors each month.


Only 18 shopping days left until Christmas.

cial holiday advertising in the News-Leader!

Know when to hold 'em, know when to old 'em


CHRIS DICKSON
For the News-Leader

All in.
They're all in Woody's Bar-B-Q
restaurant playing the most popular
form of poker, Texas Hold' Em.
Male and female, young and old,
beginners and experienced.
Every Wednesday they come,
24 of them on this night. Locals.
Sitting at poker tables, looking at
their cards, eyeing other players.
Having a good time.
Talking, drinking, laughing.
Checking, raising, folding.
And going all in. Of course,
when you go all in it doesn't neces-
sarily mean you stay in. Many times
you go all out
But that's not so bad when ifs
free. At Woody's it's just poker
chips, not real money. Oh it's com-
petitive, and there is a prize. But
it's just a game, not gambling.
There's no buy-in, sign-up fee, or
registration cost of any kind for any
player. Anyone can join in any
Wednesday evening, whether
you've been before or it's your first
time. It's always free.
"I enjoy it," said Vic Buscaino, a
local real estate agent "The poker,
the food, the friends and what not."
Buscaino and his fiance, Elisa
Yarborough, are regulars at
Woody's weekly tournaments.


CHRIS DICKSON/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Poker players play their cards during a tournament at Woody's
Bar-B-Q restaurant.


"I'm from Texas; I love Texas
Hold 'Em," Yarborough said.
Texas Hold 'Em has grown in
popularity all over the country with


the World Series of Poker, Celebrity
Poker and other tournaments.
Tournaments are televised on
ESPN.


Poker games at Woody's and
other restaurants and bars are spon-
sored by the Jacksonville Poker
Association (JPA). The Jacksonville
Poker Association started last year
with one location. Now more than
700 people play each week at 19
Jacksonville area locations.
Each tournament is set up and
run by the JPA, and each follows the
same house rules in the actual play-
ing of the game of poker. Any play-
er can play anywhere anytime.
Roger Miller, the founder and
owner of the JPA, said people may
play as many nights as they want at
as many sites as they want.
"Some players use our games
to ready themselves for real play at
a local card room, on the gambling
boats, or even in Las Vegas," he
says. "But most of our players play
because it's just good, clean fun."
Just playing poker is fun, but
winning has its pleasures too. Each
night at each location the winner,
and sometimes runner-up, receives
a prize. Every week at Woody's
another winner is awarded a $20
gift card and the runner-up a $10 gift
card. The gift cards may be used
anytime for any item on the menu,
food or alcohol.
In addition to being able to win
gift cards each week, a new 12-week
area-wide tournament for $2,500
cash has just begun. The finals will

be held on the Sun Cruz Casino
boat, which sails out of Mayport.
The top player from each JPA
site, including Woody's, goes to the
finals by accumulating the most
points at their site over the 12-week
period. Each week points are
earned by making it to the final
table at that location. Players may
participate at more than one site.
'The second-sixth place players
over the 12-week period from each
location will all play each other in a
second-chance competition at the
Jacksonville Landing. The final
eight players matriculate in the
finals.
Also, five players will win at-large
bids to the finals by earning the
most points totaled from all the JPA
locations they played at combined.
Representing Tom & Betty's


restaurant in Jacksonville, Scott
Watson won the top prize, $2,000
cash, last year. John Grzybala, from
the Mercury Moon in Fleming
Island, was the runner-up and
received $500 cash. See a picture of
Watson and his winning hand on
the web at www.pokerjax.com.

School board to set salary


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Members of the Nassau County
School Board will set their annual
salary at their 6:30 p.m. regular
meeting Thursday.
Each board member currently
earns $24,310 each year, and at least
$2,000 of that goes toward educa-
tional enhancement grants.
Nassau County, Schools
Superintendent John Ruis said he
has not recommended a salary for
the board members.
Ruis said state law, which
requires the school boards to set
their salaries at the first meeting
following their organizational meet-
ing, does not specify a minimum or
maximum amount
"It's pretty much up to them ...
it's at their discretion," Ruis said.
Prior to 2002, board salaries
were set using a formula devised by
theit Florida School Board
Associatiioni.'RWlt said since 0 fiey
began setting their own salaries,
Nassau County School Board mem-


bers have used that formula for
guidance.
In the past three years, the
salary has remained the same.
The meeting will be held at the
School Board District Office, 1201


Atlantic Ave., Fernandina Beach. A
workshop on board policy will be
held at the same location starting at
5 p.m.
The board meetings are open to
the public.

Eventually and with much effort, they

New felony charges


for Hilliard coach


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Suspended Hilliard Middle-
Senior High School football coach
Donald Walker was arrested at the
school Friday on additional charges
stemming from his Sept 18 vehicle
accident.
Walker, 37, was arrested about
11:30 a.m. Friday at the school for
two charges of felony DUI involving
serious bodily injury, four charges
of DUI involving property damage
and DUI. He was arrested Oct 29
for misdemeanor DUI involving
bodily injury, careless driving and
driving without car insurance.
Walker has been suspended
from his coaching duties without
pay, but continues to teach Excep-
tional Student Education.
Nassau County Schools
Superintendent John Ruis has said
according to Walker's contract with
the Nassau County School Board
he cannot be terminated unless he


is convicted of the charges.
Lab results from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
indicated Walker's blood had an
alcohol content of .109. A blood-
alcohol content of more than .08 is
illegal for drivers in Florida.
Walker was involved in a head-
on collision on SR 15 when he
apparently ran off the right shoul-
der of the road, overcorrected and
crossed all lanes of traffic, then
struck another vehicle head on in
the south-bound lane of traffic.
Victims were taken to Shands
Jacksonville for their injuries. All
were discharged from the hospital
within a few days of the accident.
The driver of the other vehicle, who
was carrying four passengers, was
determined at the scene to not have
been drinking, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
There were no passengers in
Walker's vehicle.
Walker was released from jail
on a $10,002 bond Friday.

Department at 277-7342 or the

Man attacked
An injured Fernandina Beach
man told police early Sunday
morning that he was attacked by
three men on Beech Street.
Jeff Robertson, 40, flagged
down a Fernandina Beach Police
officer about 2:30 a.m. According
to the police report, Robertson
was bleeding from a head injury.
He reportedly told the officer he
had been "partying" with the men
and one woman after meeting
them that night.
He said he was riding in their
vehicle when they parked on
Beech Street and the men started
"beating him with their fists and
hitting him over the head with a
beer bottle," reportedly trying to
take his money.
Robertson said he escaped and
started walking south on Eighth
Street; his money was not taken.
According to the report,
Robertson "had a large, swollen
area near his right temple ... and
a large laceration on top of his
head ... (and) scratch marks on
his neck and upper chest area."
He was taken to Baptist Medical
Center Nassau, where he was
treated and released.
No arrests have been made in
connection with the incident,
which is under investigation.

Purse stolen

found the woman sitting in her
car at Kmart about 5:30 p.m. on
Friday. The suspect asked her if
that was her car; when the victim
said yes, the woman reportedly
left. A few hours later, the victim
noticed her purse was missing
from the vehicle.
The victim told investigators
the suspect "might have been
mentally challenged and (she did-
n't) think the (woman) had any
illegal intentions."
The woman is described as a
thin, white female between the
ages of 60 and 70 and wearing a
gray coat

Cash grab
-A Callahan man is in custody
after he reportedly tried to grab a
bag of money off the counter of
Supertest gas station on US 1.
Michael Shane Cagle, 20,1614
James St., is in custody at the
Nassau County Jail on a charge
of grand theft.
According to a Nassau County
Sheriff's report, Cagle allegedly
asked to use the phone at the gas
station about 9:20 p.m. on Nov. 30.
When the cashier turned to get
the phone, Cagle allegedly
grabbed a bag on the counter that
contained $800 and ran from the
store.
The cashier chased Cagle and,
"after a brief struggle," was able to
get $380 back. Four days later,
Cagle turned himself in at the
Nassau County Jail. According to
the report, Cagle told police he
took the money but gave all of it
back when the cashier confronted
him.
Cagle is being held on $5,002
bond. He also faces charges of
failure to appear in court on a
charge of possession of drug para-
.phernalia and driving with a
license that has been suspended
or revoked.

Man shot with Taser
A Nassau County deputy used
his Taser gun on a Ratliff man
after he reportedly told the officer,
"Tase me."
According to the report, the
deputy responded to a call from a
taxi driver who said the person
she was transporting had passed
out and she wasn't sure where he
needed to go. When the deputy
woke Williafi Orvid Wratchford,
50, 54002 Wanda Way, he report-
edly "started cussing at" the
deputy. In his report, the deputy
said Wratchford "was slurring his
|words, but maniged'to'sayclea"-'
Sly ... 'I ain't getting out of the car'"
after he was ordered to exit the
vehicle.
After he warned Wratchford
that he would use his Taser gun
on him if he refused to exit the
car, Wratchford challenged him
and then got out of the car kicking
and "charging" toward the deputy,
according to the report. The
deputy used his Taser to stun
Wratchford.
Wratchford was arrested for
disorderly intoxication and oppos-
ing a law enforcement officer and
taken to the Nassau County Jail.

ting inside a car that didn't belong
to him.

29.
According to a police report,
the victim found Williams sitting

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
your contributions are tax deductible.

Should you have any questions or want more information on our organization and
how you can continue the tradition individually, with your club, civic organization
or neighborhood association, please call either of the numbers below.

JOHN L. CRAWFORD


Bowden:

Fans love

me:fans

love me not
F lorida State's 27-22
upset win over
Virginia Tech in the
inaugural ACC
Championship game in
Jacksonville Saturday night
has thrust Seminoles fans
into a dilemma a quag-
mire, if you will. Because
while the victory eases some
of the pain of the team's first
three-game losing streak in
two decades and ensures a
high-dollar, nationally promi-
nent bowl appearance, the
thorn that caused that pain
is now likely deeper in their
sides.
Yes, Jeff "The Thorn"
Bowden, FSU's offensive
coordinator and head coach
Bobby Bowden's boy, has
lodged himself sideways
under the epidermis and is
now going to be 100 times
harder to remove. The ques-
tion is: Will Florida State
boosters be that proverbial
needle that digs him out?
Most Seminoles fans
before Saturday would have
told you that Jeff Bowden
was responsible for every-
thing from the inept Florida
State offense to the dimin-
ishing population of the
Florida manatee. Bobby
Bowden has gotten cranky
enough to issue fans an ulti-
matum of sorts, saying,
'"They better be glad that I'd
like to keep this job."
Now that the Seminoles
are headed for the big
money BCS Bowl, it appears
both Bowdens might enjoy
kc]piiig thirh jubs. That is
unless those who have
money that talks view
Saturday night as merely a
shot in the dark and move
forward to have the younger
Bowden ousted.
All things considered,
Florida State fans are faced
with an extremely difficult
question: Is forcing Bobby
Bowden to fire his son
worth possibly losing the
man who built Florida State
football?...
The University of
Georgia football team's dis-
mantling of LSU in the SEC
Championship game has to
make Bulldogs fans cringe
with thoughts of "what if?"
There is no doubt after
watching that game that QB
D.J. Shockley would have
made a huge difference in
the close loss to Florida,
which could have given the
Dawgs the shot in the arm
needed to put Auburn away
at home two weeks later.
But, as they say, "Coulda,
should, woulda" No matter
the circumstances, you have
to get it done with yerins
against theirins ...
The University of Florida
football team secured a
berth in the Outback Bowl
Sunday, much to the dismay
of many South Carolina fans
who. undoubtedly feel their
team should have been invit-
ed to Tampa based on their
head-to-head win over the
Gators.
Memo to those Game-
cocks who understandably
don't have a real good grasp
on the whole postseason
thing: Bowl officials want
the teams with the best pos-
sible records. Florida is 8-3.
South Carolina is 7-4. Have
fun in the Independence
Bowl.
By the way, if your team
beat Clemson at home we
wouldn't be having this con-
versation...
The University of Florida
basketball team continued
on its rampant season open-
ing pace Saturday afternoon,
throttling UCF 80-47 and
improving to 7-0 for the first
time since the early 1980s.
Call me an optimist or a
homer, but I'm beginning to
think this Gator squad might
be the best head coach Billy
Donovan has had at Florida.
At the very least, it's the
most well-rounded.

umn appears Wednesdays.

The Fernandina Beach High School varsity boys soccer team hosted First Coast Friday night.
The Pirates blanked the Buccaneers 6-0 with Adam Langley and Conor Hammond leading the
way with a pair of goals apiece. Luis Arias, left, and Kyle Shearer, right, scored one goal each.
Fernandina controlled play, limiting First Coast to only two shots that were easily saved by
Mike Wilson. All goals were scored during the run of play except for the goal by Arias. His
goal was taken from a free kick of 25 yards that found its way around the Buccaneers' defen-
sive wall and into the lower far corner of the net. The keeper had no chance to save it. The
Pirates are at home tonight when they host a district rematch against Paxon. The junior varsi-
ty game is at 5:30 p.m. and varsity plays at 7:20 p.m.

Mandarin Mustangs


lasso Lady Pirates 7-5


The Fernandina Beach High
School girls soccer team hosted
6A Mandarin Nov. 30. The game
opened with a flurry of scoring by
both teams with the Pirates taking
an early 1-o on a goal by Laura
Mueller,,, assisted' by \\liitney
Hudson. Mandarin answered in
the next five minutes. At the 18:25
mark of the first half, Whitney
Hudson scored, giving the Pirates
the advantage once again.
Mandarin tied the game, and
then Dresden Roach beat a Manda-
rin defender off an assist from
Whitney Hudson. Mandarin scored
the next two goals to .take a 4-3
advantage.
Just before the end of the first,
half, the Pirates were fouled in the
penalty area and Coral Norheim'
converted the penalty kick to take
the game to a 4-4 tie-at the half.
Mandarin came out and scored
two quick goals in the second half
and then converted a penalty kick
to take a commanding 7-4 lead.
Late in the second half, Mueller
again found the net to take the final
score to 7-5.
"Our girls never gave up,"


FBHS Coach Greg Hudson said.
"Mandarin probably has the fastest
attack we will face all season."
Norheim and Hudson com-
bined in the keeper role to record
13 saves in the game.
On Friday, the Pirates traveled
to Providence. The Pirates domi-
nated the early part of the game
with nine shots on goal.
"We go through these periods
where we have a difficult time fin-
ishing," Coach Hudson said.
The Pirates finally found the
back of the net when Ginny Vos
scored on a header from a corner
kick taken by Mueller. Providence,
who only had three shots on goal,
scored right before half time to tie
the game.
Early in the second half, Whit-
ney Hudson executed a very well
placed through ball to a charging
Mueller who beat the Providence
keeper for the score. The Pirate
defense stiffened and limited
Providence to only two shots on
goal in the second half.

Lovejoy the blitz


winner Wednesday


BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
John McBrearty, president of Amelia Island Runners, and Mary von Mohr, program manager
for the Nassau County Health Department's Healthy Families and Healthy Start programs,
are gearing up for Saturday's Reindeer Run. The event benefits the two programs as well as
the angel tree program at the McArthur Family YMCA and the Fernandina Beach High
School track and field and cross county teams.


Reindeer Run benefits programs


You might not see Rudolph Saturday, but chances
are pretty good you'll run into Santa Claus at the
annual Reindeer Run/Walk.
The event kicks off at 8:30 a.m. from the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center and the run and walk
will be held inside Fort Clinch State Park.
The event is organized by the McArthur Family
YMCA and Amelia Island Runners to benefit sever-
al organizations this year. While proceeds will ben-
efit the YMCA's angel tree program and the
Fernandina Beach High School track and field and
cross country teams, the majority of the money
raised will help the Nassau County Health
Department's Healthy Families and Healthy Start
programs.
'This event is exciting," said Mary von Mohr,
program director for the Healthy Families and
Healthy Start programs. "Our budget is tight This
is the only extra money we get. We wouldn't be able
to do this without this partnership."
The grant-funded programs offer education and
assistance for young families throughout Nassau
County. The Healthy Start program focuses on preg-
nant women and continues until the infant reaches


its first birthday. The goal is to reduce infant and fetal
mortality, reduce the number of low birth weight
babies, reduce the incidence of teen pregnancy and
improve health and developmental outcomes.
The Healthy Families program picks up where
Healthy Start leaves off, teaching parents how to
be good parents, according to von Mohr.
She said many of the 92 families served in Nassau
County don't have toys and books for the children,
so the money raised from the run will help the pro-
gram purchase developmental toys and helpful prod-
ucts for the parents.
The Reindeer Run/Walk is designed for the entire
family, and all fitness levels, featuring 10K (6.2 mile)
and 5K (3.1 mile) runs, a 1.5 mile walk and chil-
dren's fun runs of 1/2-mile and one-mile.
Race details and entry forms are available at the
YMCA at 1915 Citrona Drive (261-1080) or online at
www.ameliaislandrunners.com (491-0369).
The 10K, 5K and walk entry fee is $20; the Kids
Fun Run is $10 and includes a race T-shirt and free
ice cream coupon. Trophies and medals will be
awarded to the overall and top three age group win-
ners in the 10K and 5K events.

It was one of those weeks in
which the weather was so-so but
the turnout for the Fernandina
Beach Men's Golf Association
blitz was very good with 67 on
Wednesday and 64 on Friday.
On Wednesday, it was Mike
Lovejoy having one of his better
rounds with a 77, good for plus
10 points and individual honors.
However, the luck of the draw
put him on a team that did not
finish in the top four. Chris Gill
(85) and Charles Helenbrook
(84) shared second place at plus
7.
As a whole, the scoring was
not great as the plus-8 team of
Gill, D.D. Miller (87, plus 6),
Rudy Campanale (97, minus 4)
and John Bray (89, minus 1) took
first place.
The five-man team of Bruce
Hillis (93, plus 2), Al Jump (88,
plus 1), Bob Tompkins (79, plus
2), Peter Dietz (91, even) and
Larry Bowie (87, minus 1) came
in second at plus 4.
Three teams shared third
place at even. The teams
involved were Tom O'Keefe (95,
minus 1), Don Lay (82, plus 5),
Michael Kaufman (87, minus 4),
Erk Russell (100, even); Joe
Sabotin (97, minus 2), Tom Gray
(77, plus 6), Wayne Chism (91,
minus 2), Steve Johnson (76,
minus 2) and Jack Ferry (93,
plus 5), George Murphy (90,
minus 3), Bob Dorsey (84, minus
3) and Walter Boyd (93, plus 1).
In the closest-to-the-pin con-
test (sponsored by the Escapade
Casino with all entry fees going
to the scholarship fund) held on
9 west, Bruce Hillis was the win-
ner from the gold tee and Buddy
Riddle from the white.
Overall, the scoring on a
chilly Friday was better than on
Wednesday with Jim Dunphy
(82, plus 9) taking individual
honors. He was closely followed
by Lew Akins (83, plus 8) and
Ron Peterson (81, plus 7).
Akins' plus 8 was supported
by an all-plus team of Bob Best
(80, plus 1), Bob Dorsey (77,
plus 3) and Tom Roberts (85,
plus 2) to take first place at plus
14.
Second place went to the
team of Dan Cisson (81, plus 1),
Ron Peterson, John Grupe (86,
plus 5) and George Henderson
.-(105, evep);,at pl s,3 ,.
Duiipli:,'s plus 9 enabled his
team of George Murphy (85, plus
2), Rudy Campanale (91, plus 2)
and George Watts (75, minus 1)
to come in third at plus 12.
The team of Tom Harmon
(81, minus 1), Larry Hall (91,
even), Woody Kallas (82, plus 5)
and D.D. Miller (88, plus 5) came
in fourth at plus 9.

Why Is It when I put Christmas lights up they never work? My neigh-
bors are always ahead of me and their yards are beautiful. I even
bought a pre-llt tree and after we put It up a whole section was
out. Yes, I did check It before we decorated It. I cut the lights off
and put a separate strand on It. I was not going to take all the dec-
orations down, dismantle the tree, return It to the store and start
all over again. The coffee Is on.

Cast nets,

ideal
Christmas
gifts and the
perfect gift
for the avid
angler. Right,

boards can
be stored
easily in your
boat and are
very handy
for measur-

ones don't wrap socks and underwear for
Christmas presents this year. Instead
they would be much happier with gifts
they can enjoy while fishing, hunting, hiking and
camping!
However, a major problem surfaces when loved
ones and friends simply do not know which out-
door gifts to purchase. They are afraid their gift will
be the wrong choice and subsequently sit in a clos-
et or garage and never enjoyed.
But there are some gifts that are hits with any
outdoorsman and will be put to
use for many joyful outdoor
seasons to come.
Boga Grips have been on
the market for several fishing
seasons now and make excel-
lent Christmas gifts for both
fresh and saltwater fishermen.
These unique landing tools
allow fishermen to secure their
hooked fish while the fish is
Terry Lacoss still in the water with the aid of
... a spring-operated set of jaws.
OUTDOORS The angler can then dislodge
his hook without even taking
the fish out of the water or handling his catch.
Naturally this makes hooked fish very happy,
ensuring your released catch will survive for many
more confrontations with catch-and-release fisher-
men!
Boga Grips also allow fishermen to hold their
catch for a quick photo and have a built-in fish scale
that accurately weighs your catch all without
touching the fish. Boga Grips sell for around a $120
and are available in most tackle stores.
Aluminum or plastic measuring boards also
make great Christmas presents for the angler. In
today's fishing world, game fish must be measured
accurately or you might have to pay a steep fine, or
worse yet, be disqualified in a high-dollar fishing
tournament.
The 45-degree angle at the end of the measuring
board allows fishermen to push the head of the fish
all the way to the end, so the fish can be measured
correctly. This is very difficult to accomplish when
measuring fish on top of a cooler with a yardstick
or measuring tape. Measuring boards, are sold in
most tackle stores and range in price from $15-25.
Cast nets are always welcomed Christmas gifts
for both the occasional and avid fisherman. A 6- to
8-foot, 3/8-inch mesh cast net is more common to
fishermen that fish bays and inlets. However, mul-
let fishermen and king mackerel fishermen often
use larger nets, including the 10- to 12-foot, 3/4-
inch mesh cast net. A good suggestion here is to
ask friends of your loved one exactly which cast net
he uses and go to a custom tackle shop where the

31-inch sea trout with aid of Boga-Grips,
which also make a terrific Christmas present.


owner can properly choice the right net for your
loved one. Cast nets range in price from $80-300.
One of the more popular outdoor gifts is a set of
filet knives. Last Christmas, I mentioned filet
knives in my Christmas article and found a nice set
all wrapped up in'Christmas paper under our
Christmas tree!
Knives do wear out during the course of a fish-
ing season and are often lost too. New ones are
highly appreciated at Christmas time!
I would recommend a set of filet knives that can
handle both cleaning fish and cutting through
bones. Knife sets normally range in price from $20-
50.
A nice gift for the fisherman, hunter, camper
and hiker is a hand-held GPS. Small boaters use
them to find their favorite fishing waters, while
large boaters can often use a hand-held GPS as a
backup when their larger unit fails. Needless to say,
hunters, campers and hikers can use them to find
their way back to civilization! A hand-held GPS
starts at around $99 and can cost over $300.
Digital cameras have come way down in price
and are perfect for saving that outdoor moment.
Most outdoorsmen hate to take the time to take
pictures of their outdoor experience. When they
begin to tell their story, they should be backed up
with photos; otherwise their once-in-a-lifetime expe-
rience may never be documented. Digital cameras
begin at around $100 and go all the way up to
$10,000!
Lures, fishing line, compasses, sunglasses,
charts, outdoor books, magazine subscriptions and
gift coupons are all great stocking stuffers.
Happy holidays!

Gulf red grouper
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
approved a rule that lowers the
recreational bag limit for red
grouper in Gulf of Mexico state
waters from two fish daily per
person to one fish. The new limit
takes effect in January.
The FWC wants to help
ensure that a 10-year rebuilding
plan for the overfished Gulf red
grouper fishery is successful.
The FWC expects the reduced
bag limit to result in a 30-percent
annual reduction in Gulf red
grouper recreational harvest.
Florida anglers may harvest
two red grouper daily in Gulf
state waters (out to nine nautical
miles from shore). In federal
waters, which extend beyond
state waters, all recreational har-
vest of red grouper is currently
prohibited until Jan. 1 under a
temporary federal rule. When
federal waters reopen to red
grouper harvest in January, a
one-fish daily limit also will apply.
The recreational five-fish daily
aggregate grouper bag limit and
the 20-inch total length minimum
size limit for red grouper remain
unchanged in both state and fed-
eral waters. Visit MyFWC.com.

This Christmas, find the magic with your inner child


Whether you call it
Merry Christmas or
Happy Holidays, this
time of year is crazy.
Chaos and panic reign. We all
know its coming but it is still hard
to manage. We know we will eat
too much. We know we will forget
to buy a gift for someone. We
know we'll receive a gift from
someone who we did not buy a
gift for. It just happens it's that
time of year when surprises
abound.
The mere thought of going
Christmas (holiday?) shopping
brings grown men to their knees.
Their eyes glaze as gift and invita-
tion lists are reviewed. The malls
and shops nearly explode with


merchan-
dise and
compete to
promote
d this year's
Christmas
S must-
haves.
Each
year Big
Guy and I
make our
Dickie Anderson lists and
one may
say, "Don't
FROM THE get me any-
PORCH thing. I
have all I
need." Right. The Christmas
morning there is nothing for Big


Guy will be a dark day.
It is no surprise that this time
of year brings out the inner cur-
mudgeon in all of us, but when
we least expect it out comes the
inner child. Humbuggery is as
much a holiday tradition as sleigh
bells and wassail. Haven't we all
heard the oft repeated, "I hate.
this time of year and can't wait for
it to be over."
In 1843 Charles Dickens creat-
ed Scrooge, the character who
sets the bar in the bah-humbug
department. Dickens' classic
story, A Christmas Carol, still
makes us stop and think about
what is really important at this
time of year. In Scrooge's case it
took ghosts to shake him out of


his self-absorbed life. No ghosts
these days just turn on your
television and you will be taught
yet another lesson about the
"real" meaning of Christmas.
Yup, it is easy to join the Bah
Humbug Club, but then some-
thing will happen that is, well,
nearly magic. So let's look past
the commercial and look for the
magic. So take some time to get
past the non-stop pressure of a
merchandised Christmas.
Carve out something simple
and special and make it your own
private little holiday celebration.
It can be a gathering of good
friends in a small intimate venue;
long-distance phone calls to peo-
ple you have not talked to for a


long time; time with small chil-
dren anywhere anytime during
the holidays; giving to people
who have less than you do; going
to church even if you never do
and listening to the unique beau-
ty of Christmas carols; watch one
of the classic Christmas television
shows like "Frosty the Snowman"
or "A Charlie Brown Christmas";
bake something even if you never
bake and giving it to someone;
put lights on something in your
yard and wear red.

Alexander, an 84-year-old Amelia Island resident and one of 21 local people identified by NCSO employees as needing help this Thanksgiving. LeBrun and his
employees used money they collected for the holidays to purchase 21 turkeys for needy residents, then spent all day on Nov. 23 frying and delivering the turkeys
with Seagraves and NCSO deputies. "I sure do appreciate this," Alexander said. "My Social Security only covers a little bit of food and my medicine." The turkeys
were delivered in the afternoon, the day before Thanksgiving. Right, Alexander hugs Undersheriff Carl Woodle.

with autism in 2003, the most
recent year for which numbers are
available. That's up nearly 60 per-
cent from 4,473 cases reported in
2000.
Some, including Gutstein,
believe the rise is at least partly
due to a loosening of the criteria
used to diagnose autism as well as
misclassification of autistic children
as mentally retarded in the past.
The two-day workshop runs
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 6 and

He is a wirehaired Griffon
Terrier male about 7 or 8
years old. When the Nassau
Humane Society got him he
had over 30 full ticks on him
as well as many, many mats
in his hair. The staff had to
cut his hair very short to get
him cleaned up without put-
ting too much stress on him
He now has his shots, has
been neutered and is ready
for his "home for the holi-

Christmas Pets on Parade
