Former city police officer James Branning waits in court,
Thursday before pleading guilty to three charges against him.


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A former Fernandina Beach
Police officer pleaded guilty
Thursday in Nassau County Circuit
Court to charges of unlawful sexual
activity with a minor, tampering
with a witness and official miscon-
duct.
James Allen Branning, 35, who
had pleaded not guilty in
September, could b e s-entenced to
25 years in prist.n. But his sentence
could be reduced if he cooperates
in the state's case against three
other city police officers.
Prosecutor Jonathan Sacks
would not comment on whether
Branning will testify against the
three other men charged with hav-
ing sexual relations with a 16-year-

Branning was described as a

Branning was jailed on 8250,002

arrest. He was held on no bond

against the Fernandina Beach
Police Department, but he was.
released Sept. 30 on $15,000 bond.
A charge based on the alleged
threat was dropped Dec..1.
Branning told Nassau Couity
Circuit Court Judge Robert, M.

Builders,


SEDA sue


county

SIAN PERRY
BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
The Northeast Florida Builders
Association and large contractor
have filed suit against Nassau
County over its recently imposed
school impact fee.
The builders' association is
based in Duval County and is com-
prised, of more than 1,700 metn-
bers in Nassau County iiff-around
Northeast Florida.
It filed the suit along vtilh SEDA
Construction Co. and is calling on
other affected builders to join what
it hopes will be a class action law-
suit.
After nearly two years of hear-
ings and discussion, Nassau
County began charging a $3,726
school impact fee this summer on
every new home built in Nassau
County.
The fee was charged to every
permit issued by the county on or
after Aug. 24.
The complaint centers on per-
mits pulled after Aug. 24, which
charged builders the fee even if
the home in question was already
under contract prior to that date.
Unable to incorporate the cost
of the fee into the contracts, the
complaint says this put an undue
hardship on builders who were

forced to absorb the entire cost of
the fee.
In most cases, the cost of impact
fees is incorporated into the price
of the home and passed onto the
buyer.
SEDA entered into at least 22
* contracts prior to Aug. 24, but was
still required to pay the $3,726
impact fee on each of the homes.

Sheriff


may get


building

BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Anew sheriffs building is back
on the Nassau County project list.
The county commission desig-
nated more than $885,000 to a new
sheriff's administration building
Wednesday, signaling a new com-
mitment to a long-anticipated proj-
ect.
For years the county has dis-
cussed plans for a one-story,
~ 28.000-square-foot building to
house the sheriff's administration
offices. The building was includ-
ed in the conceptual plan for the
Nassau County Judicial Annex on
WVilliam Burgess Road in Yulee.
Currently, the site is cleared
and the parking lot is there.
However, funding for the proj-
ect never materialized as other
projects at the annex, such as the
new courthouse and jail, took
precedence.
The designation of one-cent
sales tax revenue Wednesday rep-
resents the beginning of a "funding
accumulation process" to get.the
sheriff's administration building
on track.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said Wednesday he was
happy to see the money designat-
ed to the project, which was esti-
mated to cost about $6 million
when it was proposed six years
ago.
The current administration
office is located in the old jail off
AA in Yulee, which Seagraves said
is cramped, inadequate and has
necessitated the use of mobile
homes for additional office space.
The commission also approved
a motion Wednesday to have that
site appraised for possible sale in
the future.

Program helps students


to achieve their potential


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
Communities In Schools, a pri-
vate, nonprofit organization that
connects community resources
with students struggling with aca-
demic or related problems, has
come a long way since its begin-
nings in Nassau County a decade
or so ago.
At that time, it was known as
Cities In Schools, as it was called in
the urban areas of our state. It was
based on the premise that a poor
self-image caused many children,

who were otherwise capable of
making good grades; to fail. In
those early days, so much empha-
sis was put on boosting a child's
ego that children didn't always real-
ize that self-respect and success
has to be earned through hard
work.
The program has evolved over
the years, emphasizing academic
achievement, helping kids optimize
their strengths and overcome their
weaknesses, graduate and become
productive members of society.
Their academic and social achieve-
ments result in an authentic self-

"CIS is a partnership of the

We all can agree that
children are not
nearly as active as
they have been in
past generations. As a result,
America's children, on the whole,
are not measuring up to basic
standards of fitness and a great
many are overweight- even
obese. It is shocking that medical
researchers are stating that this
generation is the first that is not
expected to live as many years as
their parents' generation.
Part of the problem is the pas-
sive entertainment offered by tel-
evision and video games, which
also leads to constant snacking..
Limit the time the children in
your family spend at these "activi-
ties," and see that the majority of
their playtime involves physical
activity.

One way to
encourage
children to
move is to
choose toys or
gifts that
require some
physical activi-
ty. And keep it simple. Kids do
not need games and toys that do
their thinking for them, or only
require pushing a few buttons.
Here are some suggestions:
Tunnels and tents. We have
seen kids ignore a large toy and
play with the box it came in. We
probably played with boxes our-
selves once upon a time. Pick up
on this idea and consider
portable play tents and tunnels.
Made of flexible wires and nylon,
they are available in a range of
designs, and encourage kids to
play hide and seek, follow the
leader, etc.
Not only do they help with

imagination and creative think-

Balls of all kinds. Kick 'em,
throw 'em, roll 'em, chase 'em,
bounce 'em. Footballs, basket-
balls, softballs, and beach balls
afford endless fun. Kids may
eventually tire of a particular elec-
tronic game or mechanical toy
and relegate it to the back of a
closet But a game of catch or
touch football is always a new
experience. And don't forget cro-

old favorites.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16,2005 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE Continued from 1A
prison.
Branning would not comment
Thursday to the News-Leader
about his guilty plea.
"Everything you've printed
has been lies," he said. "... Just
make something up, that's what
you'd do anyway."
Branning, Duffy and Ramia
were arrested Sept. 7 after a
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement investigation into
allegations that in 2002 some
FBPD officers had sex with the
victim while she was a member of
the Explorers program. The
Explorers program for local
youths was disbanded in spring
2003.
Haskins wa's arrested Oct. 28
in connection with the allegations.
All four men were charged with
unlawful sexual activity/inter-
course with a minor.
Duffy was also charged with
official misconduct and perjury.
He and Haskins have been sus-
pended without pay from the
police department, pending the
outcome of their trials. Ramia is a
former officer who now lives and
works in Jacksonville.
All three men were released
from the Nassau County Jail on
bond.
The fourth charge against
Branning, corruption by threat
against a public servant, was filed
while he was still jailed in
September. Duffy reportedly told
a deputy that Branning had told

"We're in need of a whole lot
more room, and we need some-
thing that's more secure and
operable," Seagraves said. "It's an
old building, we've outgrown it
and we really do need a better
establishment."
Those sentiments were echoed
by members of the county com-
mission Wednesday.

and kill every-
one... in an
apparent
Branning attempt of
revenge,"
according to a
sheriff's office report
Duffy has denied making
those allegations to a deputy.
The police department was
told of the girl's allegations
against the officers in spring 2003,
but did not ask for a state investi-
gation until August 2004.
Branning was the police offi-
cer in charge of the Explorers
program at the time the allega-
tions were made.
The tampering with a witness
charge was based on reports that
he met with the girl in 2003 in an
attempt to persuade her to
renounce the allegations against
him.
Police Chief "Chip" Hammond
retired Oct. 31.
He said then that he had wait-
ed until the department had been
"weeded out" by the FDLE inves-
tigation.
"I had to see this through and
it's seen through... now I'm sat-
isfied that whoever takes over the
police department is getting 100
percent good people," he said at
that time.

Commissioner Marianne
Marshall said she would rather
have spent money used to reno-
vate and refurbish the new com-
mission chambers earlier this year
on a new sheriff's building.
"I asked, 'Why do this (com-
mission) chamber when the sher-
iff's building is falling in around
them?' We cannot continue to put

Beach quality poor


The Nassau County Health
Department issued an advisory
Thursday that ocean water quality
on the south end of Fernan-
dina Beach is a health risk for
bathing.
Weekly routine monitoring pro-
duced a report of poor water qual-
ity for enterococci. Fecal coliform
quality was moderate.
Enterococci are bacteria found
in the feces of humans and animals.
The bacteria can colonize open
wounds and skin ulcers, causing
illness.

HELP Continued from 1A
with academic, social, emotional
and psychological problems
receive individual assistance. The
students receive 10 hours of aca-
demic tutoring a week by teach-
ers, and further assistance with
their assignments by volunteer
mentors.
Monthly attendance and home-
work completion is recognized
and prizes are awarded to encour-
age further effort
"This is for children who need
extra help, and are willing to work.
It helps kids help themselves,"
said Milana. "Everything is there
to help the children raise their
academic grades, and we expect
them to go up a full grade level on
the FCAT and be performing at
grade level by the end of the
school year."
Ed Millan, Yulee Middle
School program director, adds,
"This is an investment in the
future. If we don't make an
input with our youth, we will have
'future problems with young peo-
ple who don't have the self-disci-
pline or skills to hold a job and
contribute to the community. We
are targeted toward measurable
results."
Those results reflect the suc-
cess of the program, with 87 per-
cent of CIS students achieving
grade level or making significant
gains on the FCAT, and 70 per-
cent improving a full letter grade
in math and reading-the two areas
that have presented the biggest
challenge for CIS students. And
the students appreciate the indi-
vidual help and attention they
receive.
Kevin Crouch, a seventh-grad-
er, says, "My gpod teacher, Ms.


I)


Reynolds, has been taking things
slowly for me and going through
all the basics so that I can get it. I
raised my (math) grade from a D
to a C."
Raymond Parker, an eighth-
grader, has been in CIS for three
months. "I like it a lot," he says.
"The reason I came is that a
whole bunch of CIS kids told me
that they liked it and that it had
helped them.
"You have a snack with all the
other students first, then go to a
different teacher for each grade
level, where-you get help with
your weakest subject, until 5 p.m.
Then you go outside for exercise
or some other activity."
Another eighth-grader, Jeremy
Starkes, agrees. "I've learned
more stuff than I've never known
about and I've got to know more
teachers. I get help with my home-
work, so when I get home I bare-
ly have any. And I brought my
math grade from F to D. For me,
that's a big improvement."
Teachers in the CIS program
have more flexibility than in a
regular school classroom, and
can combine activities, such as
art and math, to make the class
time more appealing and stimu-
lating. Discipline is firm but
respectful, and the well-controlled
environment is conducive to learn-
ing.
"It is not just another after-
school program to give kids a
supervised place to go," said
Milana. "We exist to help strug-
gling students overcome their
weaknesses, realize their full
potential and achieve their
dreams, and the measurable
progress students in the program
have made proves its value."

Alpacas a fun and challenging family business


LILSPINKS
WestNassau Correspondent
Liz and Bill Roberts did three
years of research before taking the
big step of purchasing three alpacas
three years ago, said their daugh-
ter Jennifer Heape, who helped in
the research effort.
The Roberts live on Shamrock
Lane Farm, which Liz Roberts
inherited from her father, in the
Murrhee Road area, north of
Hilliard. Heape also has her own
home on the farm.
"The most beautiful thing about
an alpaca is, you can own them for
20 years, and you can profit from
them each and every year, but you
never have to kill them," she said.'
That was a strong selling fea-
ture for the Roberts.
Alpacas are not cheap. The
Roberts paid $20,000 for their
female, Minnie, and less for the
male and cria (baby alpaca). The
animals are registered with the
Alpaca Registry in Colorado, which
is a database created in 1988 to
house the genealogy, blood typ-
ing/DNA and ownership records of
alpacas in North America.
The Roberts chose to start with
three Huacaya alpacas as opposed
to the Suri breed. Huacaya alpacas
are larger and their fur is softer
and fluffier.
Female alp4cas, which start
breeding at from 14 to 16 months
old, do so every year. Gestation
lasts from 11 to 11-1/2 months.
Two weeks after giving birth,
they're ready to be bred again. It's
an ongoing ritual.
"That's what she wants," said
Roberts. Heape added that the
female will not be bred if she does-
n't want to be. It's up to her.
"They are the most amazing ani-
mals that I've ever worked with.
They amaze me every day," she
said.
Alpacas don't require a large
amount of space, their areas don't
need much cleaning and there is lit-
tle to no odor associated with their
feces, which they deposit in tidy
communal piles.
Alpacas prefer grazing on soft
grasses over bushes and trees, leav-
ing a
mowed-lawn effect And there is
a high demand in the textile market
for the luxurious quality wools pro-
duced by .alpacas.
The only regret Roberts has is
that they have not been able to find
a veterinarian to help.them. She
sad'Dr..I, *#n icks inFernandina
has graciously helped them in
emergencies, but she doesn't
understand why more large-animal
veterinarians don't learn more
about alpacas as they become more
popular.
"Let's face it, if you're going to
pay $20,000 for .an animal, you're
going to pay for vet care," said
Roberts.
There are now five alpacas, with

another baby due in May. Roberts
said they lost the first cria at 5
months old as a result of last year's
hurricanes, when the little solid
white female developed viral pneu-
monia and died.
Roberts said the mother Wasn't
the only one who grieved the loss.
She said she cried for days.
But Minnie had another baby
in May, named "Avalanche."
Roberts said they shear the
fleece from the five alpacas once a
year, usually around April, just
before the females bear their young


and before it becomes hot.
The fleece is then sent to be
processed for yarn, woven into
material, or spun into Alpaca felt,
which is used for the purses Heape
makes.
Alpacas come in 26 different col-
ors. In Peru, Chile and Bolivia,
where Alpacas originate, the ani-
mals are bred to be white and then
dyed afterwards. In the United
States, however, animals are bred
for color to, avoid dyes or preserv-
atives in-the clothing.

cut is the most suitable for yarn, but
for alpaca felt used in the purses,
the second and third cuts are the
most appropriate, said Heape.
Taking care of alpacas is very
much like taking care of family
pets. They have to be wormed
monthly, inoculated, and their hoofs
need to be trimmed regularly.
There is one difference, how-
ever, in that you do not brush their
hair, said Roberts. "It will damage
the shaft of hair," she said. '
Like their distant cousin, the
camel, alpacas spit, but mostly as a


defense mechanism, said Heape.
It's their way of saying "back
off," said Heape.
Alpacas communicate by "hum-
ming" she said. If there is a preda-
tor around, or if they are upset, they
produce a high-pitched "hummm."
Heape said alpacas, for the most
part, are docile and that she knows
which animal is humming without
even seeing it, similar to the way a
mother knows her child's cry, as
well as what's causing it.
Like humans, they each have
their own personality.
"Blitz," the headmaster, wants
to be noticed but doesn't want to
be touched that much. "Magnum,"
or "Mag" as he is called on the farm,
is a "wannabe" herd master. He is
also the most loveable of the five
and has to have a kiss before he
will eat.
"Hershey" was the youngest of
the three original alpacas. He's
affectionate some of the time. And
"the baby" still wants to stay with its
mom, Minnie, who is very protec-
tive over her cria.
"She is just not a pleasant young
lady," said Roberts of Minnie. It
seems that the only time Minnie
wants to bond with anyone is from
two or three weeks before she gives
birth, as if she knows she's going to
need help.
During delivery of her cria, she
will allow them to do anything and
until about two or three weeks after-
wards. After that, she just wants to
be fed and left alone.
Roberts said that if anyone is
curious about alpacas, or has not
seen one before and would like to
take a look, they are welcome to
visit Shamrock Lane Farm.


December.
Heape said they look forward to
input from their customers to
ensure that everyone gets the
"Girly Girl Bag" which best meets
their needs.
Heape's purses were quite basic
to start with. She said that since
those early days, they've learned
from experience.
"It's kind of like you live and
learn and we've modified our styles
and we've modified the material
that we're using now," Heape said.
They use a stabilizer now, which
gives the purses more body. "They
stand up by themselves now," she
said. A stain repellant is applied to
the fabric, and purses can be cus-
tom-made in accordance with what
the customer wants.
The majority of their purses are
made of fabric, but the demand for
alpaca purses is on the rise with
most of the orders made by men,
said Heape.
"I really like the alpaca purses
but I think it's a specialty purse. I
would not carry it every day, but I
think it's very nice for a special
occasion," she said.
Alpaca is similar to cashmere,
but softer. "I love alpaca. I have
alpaca sweaters," said Heape. A lot
of people who like wool but can-
not wear it because they're sensi-
tive to it, can wear good quality
alpaca with no problem, said
Heape.
Fabric purses are made of quilt-
ing, cotton blends, upholstery fab-
ric, wicker, raffia and any other fab-
rics they think would present a fun,


Girly Girl Bag.
In addition to purses, they also
take orders for hats, men's and
women's socks,'scarves, alpaca
teddy bears and alpaca yarn.
Heape lives in one house and
her mom and dad in another on a
119-acre family farm called
Shamrock Lane Farms in the
Murrhee Road area, just north of
the Hilliard city limits.
Heape said she and her mom
go to work each day and when they
come home, after taking care of
the alpacas, they sew "until we can't
sew any more."
Her nephews, Henry and Thai,
go to the farm to help out every
chance they get. "They're usually
over here every other weekend.
They enjoy it," she said.
Heape said that her long-term
goal for the business is for it to be
big enough to hire a couple of
employees and let her mom run
the business from her home.
Heape said having thebusiness
allows her to express the artistic
side of herself, but that she needs
the mental challenge she gets from
working as a paralegal.
According to Roberts, there are
purse makers but she doesn't want
"It's a Girly Girl Bag" to just be
another one of them. "I want ours
to be a cut above," she said.
"I think that the different prod-
ucts thatwe use in our purses make
ours a little bit better than what
everybody else has."

We're number 11! In taxes, that is


With the approach of the new year, one of
the less appealing aspects of 2006 will be
the arrival of our various tax bills. In
Nassau County we have many to antici-
pate including federal, county ad valorem (real
estate), school and (starting Jan. 1) the new 5-cent-
per-gallon gas tax.
Since real estate taxes are always a source of
heated discussion, let's take a quick look at what's
happening in our own county.
Someone had told me that a home in the historic
district of Fernandina Beach had experienced a
jump in total real estate taxes from $9,400 in 2004, to
a whopping $22,000 in 2005. That's a 234 percent
increase! To be accurate, the "home" is one of the
island's premier B&Bs, and a recent court decision
eliminated the partial homestead exemption protec-
tion it used to receive. This particular inn has five
guest rooms, so as they say, "do the math." It's
going to be tough for this inn, and most of the other
B&Bs, to make it in the coming years:
And it's not just the B&Bs that are facing finan-
cial challenges. Take a look up and down Centre
Street There are currently several vacancies and
rumors of more to come after the holidays.
A legendary store like Partin's closed after being
operated by the same family for over a hundred
years. The last member of that store's dynasty
ended up taking a "safer job" with the county, work-
ing for the tax collector's office.
Property owners in downtown Fernandina Beach
are faced with a Catch-22:-As their property
appraisals have continued to creep higher each year,
their city and county taxes have increased at a simi-
lar rate, so they are forced to charge higher rental
rates to their tenants in order to cover their costs.
The problem is, there are fewer and fewer small
businesses that can afford these rates, so there are
(and will be) more vacant storefronts. This, in turn,
begs the question: "Are these appraisals and assess-


ments, upon which all of these taxes are based,
accurate? Or is this part of the real estate bubble
we've started to hear about, that may soon pop?"
In other words, if these properties are really
worth so much money that we can be taxed so
much for them, why aren't people lined up trying to
rent them or buy them?
But let's leave the issues related to the commer-
cial district and return to property taxes in general.
I recently sat down with Nassau County Property
Appraiser Greg Haddock in an effort to better
understand how the general system operates.
According to Haddock, there is very little discre-
tion involved in the appraisal process, and most of it
is governed by code and statute.
If you have the protection of a homestead exemp-
tion, your annual property appraisal can only
increase by either 3 percent or the CPI (Consumer
Price Index), whichever is less.
So perhaps the "problem" of high property taxes
in Nassau County is one of perception rather than
one of fact. Maybe we really don't pay any more for
services than our peers in neighboring counties.
Maybe the tax burden for a Nassau County resident
is no worse than someone living in the surrounding
counties of Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler or Putnam.
Then again, maybe it is.
Based on 2004 Florida County Ad Valorem Tax
Profile (County Government Levies Only), Nassau
County was ranked as follows:
County Millage Rate Taxes Per Capita
Nassau 8.5045 $630.61
Duval 10.340 $451.93
Flagler 5.3938 $444.13
Putnam 10.000 $381.46
Clay 8.8536 $348.59
Baker 8.9599 $192.54
I can hear the chants now, "We're number one!
We're number one!" (Actually Monroe County with
Key West is the most expensive "tax county" in the


state, where per capital taxes
are $1,600.)
But all of these figures tell a
story that should be of concern
to all Nassau residents. With
property appraisals continuing
to increase based on statutory
authority, the only real protec-
tion we have rests with the leg-
islative arm of our county gov-
ernment, the Board of County
Mike Boyle Commissioners.
While the property apprais-
er's office is mandated to raise
WAIT A appraisals as the market dic-
MINUTE states, the commissioners are
under no similar obligation to
raise millage or spending rates.to keep pace with the
"potential" new funds.
The problem is the last few commissions have
not restrained themselves from spending any new-
found dollars brought to their table. Quite the con-
trary.
At the beginning of the new fiscal year, they were
presented with 7 million "new dollars" generated
from the billion dollars of additional new property
values, and instead of truly cutting taxes, they not
only grabbed the entire seven million, they also
passed an additional 5-cent/gallon gas tax that will
take effect in a couple of weeks.
Residents need to ask themselves if they are
receiving a level of service that justifies one of the
highest per capital county tax rates in the state. A
drive along any of our major roads should answer
that question. If the county commission is our line of
defense in the battle for fiscal responsibility, we're in
trouble.

Whose holiday is this anyway?


Tis the season to be jolly so Merry Christmas,
Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa or whatever else
this holiday season.
Oops, I better be careful, I said the "H" word.
These days, if you say happy holidays or look at that
beautiful holiday tree, some zealot of the Christian
faith might go off on you.
Wow, this really puts me in the spirit. 4
It's a tree for crying out loud, it's not as if we're
changing the name of a child! Call it what you like,
but please quit whining because someone else has a
different name for it, or they want to call it some-
thing that is more inclusive to a wider variety of
S humankind.
-. S ~hApparently some Christians
top, (not all mind you, but quite a
few) think that the latter part of
: the month of December
belongs just to them. These are
the same folks who also think
that the United States is a
Christian nation, and all people
of other religions are just inter-
lopers.
Here's a news flash just in
Coleman from our Founding Fathers -
Langshaw the United States of America is
a non-sectarian country.
According to our Constitution,
OPINIONS we're meant to be a country
FROM THE that does not discriminate for
or against any particular reli-
GOLDFISH gion. I don't know how much
plainer it can get, but nowhere
does it say we're a Christian nation so make room
for the rest of the Americans, folks!
Although my family is essentially Christian, I am
not religious so some will probably say that I have
no dog in this fight, but I think for just that reason I
have an objective perspective, unfettered by a theo-
logical passion or dogma.
Sure, I grew up calling it a Christmas tree, but as
I got older lo and behold, I discovered (to the cha-
grin of my narrow-viewed perspective of the world)
that there were other religions out there who also
use a tree to help celebrate their holiday (apparent-
ly, and ironically, Christians originally borrowed the
idea from another religion). The most important
thing I learned however is that some religions even
celebrated their holiday during the same season as
Christmas.

Wow, people different than me? In America? You
mean not everyone is a WA.S.P.? Not everyone cele-
brates Christmas? Jeez, imagine that?
Correct me if I am wrong, but somehow
I don't think that Jesus Christ imagined his birth
becoming an opportunity to fight over terminology.
In fact, if I understand what Christians believe he
stood for, it was acceptance, inclusion, compassion
and understanding, certainly not traits being
exemplified in this "tree" debate (and as my wife
noted, he probably wouldn't relish "blue light spe-
cials" in his name either but that's a whole other
topic!).
The real thing is that it is astounding that people
are spending, no, wasting time about this when


there are so many more important things to worry
about. People are dying from war, from starvation,
from neglect, from abuse all things Christians and
non-Christians alike should focus their concerns
upon.
So the next time someone wants to bemoan the
travesty of calling a tree by a politically correct or
politically incorrect name, why not respond by say-
ing:
"Peace on Earth, and good will towards all men
(and women)."
Now that is something to which even this non-
believer can say, "amen."

City approves'vested rights' for 3 buildings


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The Fernandina Beach Com-
mission approved three vested
rights applications Dec. 6, enabling
developers to go ahead with proj-
ects that violate city codes because
the city belatedly began to enforce
those codes.
But Commissioner Bill Leeper,
who voted against all three, told
one applicant he had failed to prove
his case.
"I think when you say you will
lose $138,350, I don't believe that
for a minute," Leeper told appli-
cant Steve Head of Steve Head
Construction.
Commissioners voted 4-1 to
approve an application submitted
by Carl and Janice Pearce for a
duplex at 2724 First Ave.
The commission voted 3-1 to
approve two vested rights applica-
tions submitted by Head for con-
struction of townhouses at 730 and
732 Kingfisher Way and 837 Laura
St. Commissioner Joe Gerrity
recused himself from voting on
both of Head's applications because
they are business partners.
Planning staff recommended
approval of Head's applications.
According to the staff report, "The
applicant relied on actions by the
city in that the city issued the appli-
cant eight building permits in the
last three years in the R-2 zoning
district."
Single-family houses are per-
mitted in R-2. The planning depart-
ment stopped issuing permits for
multifamily structures in medium-
density residential districts Sept.
7 after Interim Planning Supervisor
Catherine Hartley determined that
previous permits violated the city's
comprehensive plan.
"The environment the city cre-
ated by allowing the construction
of townhouses and duplexes
encouraged me to pursue this activ-
ity," Head told the commission.
"The actual dollars involved in
purchasing a lot for a townhouse
are significantly more than the dol-
lars involved in purchasing a lot
for a single-family home. And the
financial information I provided
was put there to illustrate that fact,"
he said.
The projects, the purchase of
the land and expenses "were initi-.
ated long before this issue arose on
Sept. 7," when the planning depart-
ment denied his permit applica-
tion, he said.
"And therein lies my hardship.
Because now- I'm stuck vith paying
too much for dirt."
Head included financing fees,
interest and closing fees from the
original property financing, the
price he paid for his property and
the cost of building plans as
expenses on his application.
"I believe he had his plans
drawn up before" .Sept. 7, Hartley
said.
, But Head's expenses and doc-

umentation did not demonstrate
his investment loss, Leeper said,
noting other discrepancies, includ-
ing different dates for the purchase
of the property.
'There's no invoices. That's just
an itemized (list) from your com-
pany," Leeper said, adding that
Head could profit from building a
single-family home, which is per-
mitted in medium-density resi-
dential.

I think when you sayyou will

for a minute.'


COMMISSIONER BILL LE

ning staff recommended a three-
part vested rights test as the most
expedient means of determining
if property owners had made sub-
stantial investments based on pre-


vious practices.
Construction plans and finance
costs do not pass the vested rights
test, Julie Ferreira of Concerned
Friends of Fernandina said.


"I don't think that we would
want to reward property owners
for creating expenses so that they
could create a vested rights plead-
ing before the commission," she
said.
"It doesn't seem like financing
costs are an inequitable expense
incurred by a property owner
when his property gets rezoned,"
Ferreira said.
"It seems like every vested
rights case will then have to be
granted a similar acceptance."


To date the commission has
approved four vested rights appli-
cations. As of Tuesday, one appli-
cation was pending, Hartley said.
"I do want them to be based on
fact," Mayor Ken Walker said. "Just
because somebody buys a lot does
not mean they have vested rights."
Property owners need to "pro-
vide the evidence that we're asking
for to the satisfaction of the plan-
ning department," he said. "I just
want it to be substantiated."

builders, the complaint says, and
calls for a class action lawsuit to
declare the fee unconstitutional
and for the county to provide relief
The suit is filed against the
county, but Nassau County School
Board attorney Dixon Bridgers
said he would represent the school
board in matters relating to the
suit.
At the Dec. 8 school board
meeting, Bridgers said the suit was
not a "broad attack" on the consti-
tutionality of the impact fee.
Instead, he suggested it was a
"compliment" because the builders
were focusing only on those home-
builders who had contracts prior to
Aug. 24 but were "stuck" with the
fee. I *
"They (the Northeast Florida
Builders) are tacitly acknowledg-
ing that the way we went about the
impact fee was as aboveboard as
we could be and is the reason they
are not making a broad attack," he
said. "I think we can take that as a
compliment."
Since nearly two years of hear-
ings and discussion were held prior
to the fee's approval in July,
Bridgers added it is difficult for
him to accept "the main point" of
the suit "that this narrow group
was not on notice that this impact
fee was coming dowt the line."
He did not know how long it
would take for the suit to be
resolved.
"This is a complex litigation
because they're attempting to
establish a class," he said. '"There
are numerous legal ... issues that
will have to be worked through."

Branan to chair county commission


Landfill odor


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Despite concerns about his
health, Nassau County Commis-
sioner Tom Branan agreed to serve
as the chair of the board in 2006.
Branan, who currently serves
as the commission's vice chair,
admitted having some hesitation
about taking the chair's seat after
being nominated by Commissioner
Marianne Marshall at Wednesday's
regular meeting.
Branan said he will need heart-


[ | related surgery
this year that
will require six
4 .. to eight weeks
Si of recovery.
During that
time he will be
unavailable for
county busi-
Branan ness.
Branan said
the surgery has
not yet been scheduled, but his
doctor said it would need to be per-
formed sometime this year.


"I've been a little hesitant about
taking the job on since I11 be hav-
ing this operation, but Fd be glad to
take over as chair," he said.
Branan has served on the com-
mission since November 2004. He
previously served two terms as a
county commissioner from 1988
to 1996, during which time he
served as chair in, 1992.
Branan will take over the chair
from Commissioner Ansley Acree
at the first meeting in January.
Acree will step down after serving
one year in that capacity.


All of the commissioners said
they were pleased with Acree's per-
formance as chair.
"I think you did a fine job,"
Branan told Acree. "'We sometimes
agree to disagree, but we always
have respect for one another."
Also at Wednesday's meeting,
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham was named the
board's new vice chair. He also
served on the board from 1988 to
1996, before winning election to a
third term in November 2004.

county
have a strong "objectionable odor"
along its southern boundary. This
was detectable off site, especially in
the early morning hours, DEP said.
This was confirmed by an odor
monitoring report from the coun-
ty's consultant, Golder Associates,
earlier this month.
Now the county has until Dec.
27 to perform a remediation study,
and snuffing out the odor may not
be cheap.
The consultant's preliminary
suggestion is to purchase a special
high-pressure sprayer and chemi-
cals, costing an estimated $40,000.
That may be only a temporary
solution, however, and the con-
sultant will perform a remediation
study at an additional cost of $3,000.
"Spraying may be a temporary
solution, but it's something you can
continue to use," consultant Wendy
Karably said. "We have some other
potential plans, and you. may be
able to save money by purchasing
a mobile unit you could later sell."
Funding for the project will
come from the county's solid waste
management fund.

County

may merge

landfill,

tax bills
BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
After years of collection prob-
lems caused a $1 million shortfall,
Nassau County wants to add the
landfill fee to its ad valorem tax roll.
A public hearing is scheduled
for Dec. 29 to discuss the issue over
the landfill assessment, which could
result in the addition of a $65 fee to
every county tax bill mailed out
next year.
Nassau County has been billing
its residents a landfill fee every
October since the 1980s. Earlier
this year, the fee was increased
,,from $145 lto $65 ,due,to,,finandial
* tcononerenskihl tlhia-W estuiNa'ssau
County Landfill.
However, collecting the money
.has proven to be a problem in the
past.
Tax Collector Gwen Miller's
office would mail the bills out sep-
arately from the ad valorem tax
rolls. But until this August, it was
the job of the county administra-
tor's office to collect the delinquent
fees.
Enforcement proved to be a
headache, and each year about 10
percent of the bills were left uncol-
lected. Eventually that added up to
a $1 million shortfall.
To make the process more effi-
cient and effective, Miller and
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney have both endorsed
adding the landfill fee into the coun-
ty's ad valorem tax rolls. Adding
the fee on the property tax bill will
not cost taxpayers additional
money.
Delinquent fees will be respon-
sibility of the tax'collector's office,
which can collect the fee with the
same enforcement powers as the
county property taxes.
The public hearing is scheduled
for 7 p.m. Dec. 29 at the commis-
sion chambers in the Nassau
County Governmental Complex on
Nassau Place Road in Yulee.
Should the county commission
decline to add the landfill fee to the
tax roll, residents will still be
responsible for paying the fee. Each
county household will just be billed
a separate $65 fee in addition to
their annual property taxes.

hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is
love.

for a king. A whole lot of love was shown to White
that night

their love: sister Ruby Brown, Maybelle Kirkland-

RELIGION


In an increasingly indifferent world,


Sitting in an open-air cafe on
a beautiful plaza I savored a
cup of mid-afternoon cof-
fee. Across he plaza was a
market bustling with people sell-
ing and buying fruit, vegetables
and bright cut flowers of every
kind. Enjoying my solitude I saw
what I believed to be a homeless
person; bedraggled and pulling a
folding shopping cart full of his
earthly possessions. He slowly
made his way through the market,
across the plaza and right to the
edge of the cafe marked by flower
boxes.
Trying not to stare, I couldn't
help but notice a waiter come
frominside the caf6 toward the


man. So con-
vinced was I

frontation

....s hand. He
greeted the
PULPIT man and
NOTES handed him
the bag.
It was obvious as he made his
way to a small bench on the other
side of the plaza that he had just


been given a meal; and from what
I could tell it was his first meal of
the day. At first I thought this
might simply be an effective strat-
egy to keep the homeless man
from disturbing the restaurant's
patrons. But as I watched a hun-
gry man devour a sandwich, the
words of Jesus flooded my mind.
'For I was hungry and you gave
me something to eat, I was thirsty
and you gave me something to
drink, I was a stranger and you
invited me in, I needed clothes and
you clothed me, I was sick and you
looked after me, I was in prison

Water well systems:

What you need to know


LM& s wc"*sp off"


41.- -


If you own a private household
water well or are thinking about
getting a system for your family's
drinking water needs, it is impor-
tant to have a basic understanding
about the different materials that
comprise the system.
You might be surprised to
learn that 47 percent of the U.S.
population depends on ground
water for its drinking water supply.
Many in that number get their
water from a private well.
What follows is information
about. casing, well caps, well
screens, and pitless adapters:
basic materials that combine with
a pump to provide water.
Casing
Casing is the tubular structure
that is placed in the drilled hole to
maintain the well opening.
Along with grout, the casing
also confines the ground water to
its zone underground and pre-
vents contaminants from mixing
with the water. Some states or
local governing agencies have
laws that require minimum
lengths for casing.
Casing can be made of steel'
or a thermoplastic called PVC.
Different geologic formations dic-
tate what type of casing can be
used..For example, parts of the
country where hard rock lies
underground are known strictly as
"steel states." Residents in some
areas have a choice between steel
and PVC, both of which have
advantages. PVC is lightweight,
resistant to corrosion and rela-
tively easy to install.
Well Caps
On the top of the casing should
be an approved well cap. It should
fit snugly so that debris, insects, or
small animals can't find their way
into the well system. Well caps
are usually aluminum or a ther-.
moplastic, and include a vented
screen so that the pressure dif-
ference between the inside and
outside of the well casing may be


equalized when water is pumped
from the well.
The casing and cap should
extend at least 6 to 8 inches above
the ground. If the well is near a
river or stream, it should extend
at least past the flood level to pre-
vent overflows from contaminat-
ing the ground water.
Well screens
Well screens are filtering
devices used to prevent excess
sediment from entering the well.
They attach to. the bottom of
the casing, allowing water to move
through the well while keeping
out most gravel and sand. The
most popular screens are contin-
uous slot, slotted pipe and perfo-
rated pipe.
Perforated pipe is a length of
casing that has holes or slots
drilled into the pipe. It is not effi-
cient for aquifers that feature a
lot of sand and gravel because it
has wide openings.
There is less open area in the
other two types of screens.
Continuous slot screens are made
of wire or plastic wrapped around
a series of vertical rods. Slotted
pipe screens, which have the least
amount of open area, feature
machine-cut slots into steel or
plastic casing at set distances.
Pitless adapters
Pitless adapters provide wells
with a sanitary and frost-proof
seal between the well casing and
the water line running to the well
owner's house. After a frost line is
determined for the area where
the well is being installed, the
adapter is connected to the well
casing below the frost line. Water
from the well is then diverted hor-
izontally at the adapter to prevent
it from freezing.
For more information on your
private water well, contact your
local contractor. Also, visit the
National Ground Water
Association's web site for well
owners, www.wellowner.org..

Ex-deputy


may return


to Florida

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
After spending more than six
months in Colorado, former Nassau
County Sheriff's deputy Sam
Lucero has received permission
from Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster to return to Florida.
Lucero, 34, pleaded guilty in
May to aggravated stalking and
shooting or throwing deadly mis-
siles, charges
stemming from
an armed stand-
off between
iff's deputies on
July 24, 2004, in
which he used
his children as
human shields.
Lucero" On May 5,
after pleading
guilty, Lucero
was sentenced to five years of pro-
bation and six months in outpatient
care in Colorado. He was ordered
not to return to Florida without per-
mission from the court.
Assistant State Attorney "Doc"
Burgess said Lucero had family in
Colorado who made arrangements
to have him treated at a nearby
facility at their expense.
According to Foster's orders,
Lucero will continue to have contact
by phone with his children, but he
must reside in Clay County, not
Nassau County, and he is not to
have any personal contact with his
ex-wife, Kimberly Lucero, or his
children.
Lucero originally faced charges
of committing a third-degree felony
with a deadly weapon, child abuse,
armed burglary, discharging a
firearm in public and violating a
protective injunction in addition to
the charges of aggravated stalking
and throwing deadly missiles.
Authorities said the 2004 stand-
off, at Lucero's former in-laws'
home in Callahan, resulted from a
conflict between Lucero and his ex-
wife.
In addition to probation and
court-ordered treatment, Lucero
was ordered in May to pay $370 in
court costs and $140 in restitution.

New trial datE

for man held

in wreck death
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A new trial date has been set
for a Georgia man arrested in
connection with the 2003 death
of a local woman in a vehicle acci-
dent.
The trial for Lloyd Clinton King
was set to begin on Oct. 10, but on
Dec. 8 a new date of Feb. 13 was
set.
King is facing charges of DUI
manslaughter, DUI serious bodily
injury and felony DUI.
According to authorities, King,
46, of Midland, Ga., was under the
influence of alcohol when he
wrecked a truck on July 25, 2003,
killing Nina Jurls Lucio Ferrell, 32,
of Fernandina Beach and serious-
ly injuring Michael Rippey of
Midland, Ga.
Both were passengers in the
vehicle.
King reportedly wrecked the
1998 Ford pickup truck after he
lost control of the vehicle while
traveling north on Blackrock
Road. The truck drifted onto the
shoulder of the road and began to
slide sideways, traveling more than
200 feet before it hit a drainage
ditch culvert and flipped over,
according to the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Ferrell was pronounced dead at
the scene of the accident; Rippey
and King were taken to Shands
Jacksonville for treatment of their
injuries.
If King is convicted, he could
face up to 25 years in prison and up
to $20,000 in fines.

September, when his former attorney,
Stephen J. Weinbaum, asked to be
taken off the case because Card was not
paying his attorney's fees.
After reviewing financial statements
that Card had turned in just moments
earlier, Davis also ruled that Card is
"indigent" and will have a public defend-
er appointed to represent him.
Before Davis gave his ruling,
Assistant State Attorney "Doc" Burgess
asked Card several questions about
his finances, including questioning a
gift of $8,000 he reportedly gave to
his brother recently, and $5,000 he


gave to his mother.
Card said his brother has been
hospitalized and needed financial
assistance, and that he has been "living
on (his) mother's grace since (the
arrest)."
Card told Burgess his unemploy-
ment compensation payments ended
last month.
"I went from an income of approxi-
mately $60,000 a year ... to nothing,"
Card said.
Card's next hearing was set for
Jan. 23.

Calendar captures 'Scenes of Amelia'


Local photographer Evelyn French was
featured in the December Art Walk in
downtown Jacksonville Dec. 8.
French was at Gallery 11 at East
Forsyth with her second "Scenes of
Amelia" calendar.
French's calendar features scenes of
landscapes, shrimp boats, pelicans, the
Fort Clinch fishing pier and beach scenes
as well as presenting a tribute to the late
MaVynne Betsch, the Beach Lady, with her
photograph of the Nana Dune at American
Beach.
French also captures the spirit of
Amelia Island and its local events with
scenes of the shopping districts, golf cours-
es, tennis tournaments and local historical
sites, including the stately downtown
Fernandina Beach Post Office and court-
house.
French found it difficult to select her


images this year for her calendar since
there are so many lovely sites in the com-
munity.
She had her family help vote on the
selections for inclusion this year. She said it
is a real honor to share her island images
with her community and also with the local
tourists.
She is already shooting photographs for
next year's calendar, which may be an 18-
month calendar since she wants to share
more nature scenes than she had room for
this year.
French is a native of Amelia Island and
received her B.S. degree in photography
and graphic design from UNE
Her calendars are on sale for $10 at
House of Pets, Best Friends, T-Ray's, H&H
and Nassau Liquors. They may be pur-
chased online by contacting her at

FRIDAY. DECEMBER 16.2005 LEISURE News-Leader


TOCKING Continued from 1B
stocking placement extends
eyond the mantel, so no worries
you don't have a fireplace;
tockings are draped on banis-
rs, woven into garlands and
lipped on bed headboards and
otboards.
They are suspended from
helves, edge windowsills or are
osted on doors as an alternative
o wreaths.
In Anthropologie's 2005 gift
.atalog, charming stockings are
:lipped in place with clothespins
n a cord strung in front of a win-
low. Two of the 18-inch-long
tockings are modeled after
.kates with wooden blades, one
opped with a buttoned cuff and
he other tied with ribbon laces.
Installation may be as simple
s looping the stocking over a
-lender nail, but there are dozens
f fancy hooks anchored by
mgels, reindeer and the like.
'aux mini-topiaries, planted in
iold-painted clay pots, are anoth-
r attractive anchoring option fea-
u-red in a Ballard Designs catalog.
There is no doubt that stock-
ngs lend a festive note and add
mmeasurably to a home's holiday
mbience. Hues in the stockings
an echo the colors in your home
ecor.
A more neutral approach, one
omplementary to just about any
decor, is to select a stocking in
"ich gold, silver or copper and
maintain that palette in a tree dec-
orated with lustrous ornaments
and trimmed with metallic rib-
bons or beads.
Beyond monograms, personal-
ization might include themes
showing off favorite hobbies, such
as gardening, golf, cooking or
travel and, of course, the stock-
ing can be filled with gifts to
reflect those activities.
It's doubtful that stockings first
associated with St. Nicholas were


fancy or colorful. The legend is
said to date to the sixth century. It
centers on a widowed nobleman
who lost his fortune and ability to
provide dowries for three daugh-
ters. St. Nicholas helped the man.
by dropping three small packets
of gold coins down the chimney,
and the packets settled into
woolen stockings the girls had
hung to dry.
In the 19th century came the
now-familiar reference in the clas-
sic poem, "A Visit From St
Nicholas," attributed to Clement
C. Moore in 1822: "'The stockings
were hung by the chimney with
care, in hopes that St Nicholas
soon-would be there."
There's little reference to style
or even colors of early stockings,
but eventually red and green
came to be favored as traditional
Christmas hues.
Of course, unorthodox color
combinations like tangerine and
orchid diamonds on a stocking
with jester-curled toes are as
much eye candy as pretty
wrapped packages under the tree.
The orange-and-purple sock actu-
ally stands up on the floor when
stuffed, as featured in Better
Homes and Gardens.
But the familiar red-and-green
motif needn't.look dated or tired.
Old standbys, such as simple red
and white stockings, can come off
as fresh as boughs of evergreens
by changing elements of the set-
ting each year. Take a cue from
Pottery Barn, which features red
and white stockings trimmed sim-
ply with bells or. embroidered
snowflakes.
They take on a sophisticated
look when hung from a white
mantel decked with frosted red
candles, fresh greenery and glass
containers filled with red and sil-
ver ornaments. Sparkling silver.
stars suspended at different
heights from the ceiling make the
vignette all the more enchanting.

FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


Rotary 'Dictionary Project' at 800 books and growing
SIAN PERRY gave 50dictionariesdto area school- -' : '

The Rotary Club of Fernandina
Beach is on a mission to promote
literacy, one dictionary at a time.
So far, they are more than 800
books into their drive and that's
just year one, said Doug Mackle,
head of the project locally.
"A lot of the children that
received this book, it was the first
book in their home. I think it's
going to have a big impact,"
Mackle told the Nassau County
School Board Dec. 8, where Rotary
was honored for its efforts.
'"This can be handed down from
generation to generation," said
Linda Morris, director of elemen-
tary education for the school dis-
trict "We are amazed that you were
able to pull this together and we
are honored."
"The Dictionary Project" began
in 1992 as the brainchild of Annie
Plummer of Savannah,, Ga., who


the money to buy 17,000 diction-
aries for children in Savannah.
The project, aimed at third-
graders, has since grown into a
national nonprofit organization that
has reached more than 1.25 mil-
lion children. The dictionaries have
nameplates personalized for each
student and are delivered to the
classrooms by Rotary Club mem-
bers.
The Fernandina Beach club
plans to continue the project for
years to come, said Mackle.
'The goal is that no third-grad-
er leaves the third grade without
their very own dictionary," said
Foy Maloy, Rotary member and
publisher of the News-Leader, who
was busy Dec. 9 handing out dic-
tionaries to 11 Atlantic Elementary
School classes with fellow
Rotarians Al Rutland and Clyde
Davis.

New hip


keeps


Nicklaus


on course
Jack Nicklaus is consid-
ered the greatest golfer of all
time, with 100 worldwide vic-
tories and a record 20 major
championships. However, as
good as he was at breaking
down his opponents, Nicklaus
just could not beat progres-
sive arthritis in his hip.
Nicklaus believes that his
hip problems began after an
injury in 1963 when he mis-
hit a shot and had immediate
pain in his hip. At the time, it
was not unusual to use corti-
sone injections on a frequent
basis, and he underwent
some 25 injections over a 10-
week period. Although it ulti-
mately led to his improve-
ment, it likely hastened the
development of arthritis in
the hip.
His hip was too much to
bear, and he underwent a hip
replacement in 1999 under
the care of Dr. Ben Bierbaum
of the New England Baptist
Hospital.
I recently had the opportu-
nity to participate in an event
hosted by Nicklaus. After a
morning round of golf, I had
the pleasure of meeting with
Nicklaus and participating in
a question-and-answer lunch-
eon.
Nicklaus reported, "My
hip is great and I don't even
think about it anymore."
He has said in the past
that he "did it to get back my
life, not just for golf." With a
dedicated physical therapy
program, Nicklaus was able
to get back to competitive
golf quickly,. returning in just
three mni-nths to the Senior
.PGAJjct. in fact., hl told me
that currently his only prob-
lem is a bad wrist, which he
hurt in a game of tennis just a
few days earlier.
Nicklaus recalled how his
hip had essentially overtaken
his life, affecting not only his
golf but his day-to-day activi-
ties as well, such as playing
with his grandkids, driving
and shopping with his wife.
His remarkable talent
allowed him to be competitive
with his golf, finishing sixth
in the 1998 Masters, despite
his debilitating arthritis.
Eventually it was too much
for him to take, choosing to
end his streak of 154 consecu-
tive major championships by
skipping the British Open and
PGA and have his hip
replaced in January 1999.
At the recommendation of
his doctor, he chose a ceram-
ic-type implant manufactured
by the Stryker Corporation.
Nicklaus was so impressed
with his recovery that he is
now a spokesman for the
company.
Nicklaus has said that he
wants to help educate the
public about surgical options
because he feels that had he
known better about what he
could have done and how it
would improve his quality of
life, he would have had his
hip replaced sooner and not
have had to endure the pain
of his arthritic hip.
A hip replacement
involves cutting out the
arthritic ball of the hip joint
and replacing it with a
smooth ball implant, and
replacing the arthritic socket
with a metal cup with a
replacement liner.
Hip replacements are typi-
cally performed in persons
over the age of 60, although
that does not prevent younger
patients from having surgery.

Rick Stockstill, a graduate of Fernandina Beach High School, was named the head football coach at Middle
Tennessee University on Monday. Above and below right, he addresses the media after the announcement.

Stockstill named MT head coach


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Rick Stockstill, who will turn 48 on
Dec. 23, became the new head football
coach at Middle Tennessee University
in Murfreesboro on Monday.
He graduated from Fernandina Beach
High School in 1977 after playing two
seasons for the Pirates under his father,
Joel, currently a guidance counselor at
FBHS.
"It was awesome," Stockstill said of
playing for his father. "I have a son that's
an 11-year-old and plays sports... me
being a coach, I don't have near enough
time to spend with him that I would like.
I'm coaching other people or recruiting.
"It was a great experience for me to
spend that extra 3-6 p.m. with my dad. I
was not given any special treatment. He
was probably harder on me, proving to
the other guys I wasn't getting any spe-
cial treatment."
Football is in Stockstill's blood.
"I grew up in an athletic family," he
said. "I was involved in sports all my life.
I played them all, football, basketball,
baseball ... neighborhood Wiffle ball."


He was a three-year letterman at
Florida State at the quarterback position
and earned honorable mention All-
America honors in 1981. He made three
bowl trips with the Seminoles.
Football has had a grip on Stockstill
ever since.
"When I graduated from Fernandina,
I went to Florida State," he said. "I went
there with the idea I would be a high
school coach. When dad retired I was
going to take over, come back to
Fernandina. When I got there I saw a
"different light on the coaching profes-
sion. I was intrigued by the college level,
watching Coach (Bobby) Bowden and
the other coaches."
So, he decided the college coaching
route was for him. He got his feet wet at
Bethune-Cookman College in Daytona
Beach and has had stints as an assistant
coach at Clemson, the, University of
Central Florida and most recently the
University of South Carolina under Coach
Steve Spurrier.
"You always dream of running your
own program and being the head guy,"
Stock-still said. "'Te always dreamed of it,
but ... if I never became a head coach, I


wouldn't deem my career utscc:ssful.
I was,completely happy with evt r thin
I've done and where I've been."
Competition for the head coaching
position at a Division I school is stiff.
'These things are so hard to get," he
said. '"There are 119 Division I football
teams in America. To get a head coach-
ing job at this level, it's tough. That's why
I'm so excited to have this opportunity."
"It's really a big deal," said his father.
"A lot of people don't realize how com-
petitive it is and how difficult it is to get
a Division I job."
Stockstill has an extensive back-
ground in recruiting and he plans to use
that knowledge on his new job.
"Recruiting is the lifeblood of any pro-
gram," he said. "If you' don't have good
players, chances are you're not going to
win a lot of games."'
He's actively involved in 'recruiting
now, but said the dead period starts
Saturday and that's when he will get the
opportunity to evaluate the talent on his
Blue Raiders squad.
"Come January, we'll hit the ground
running and get after it full force," he
said.

LAST WEEK: The Jaguars lost
26-18 to the Indianapolis Colts
(13-0) Sunday at Alltel Stadium,
but Jacksonville still had a one-
game lead in the wild-card race.
The Jaguars were their own
worst enemies with three per-
sonal fouls in one second-quar-
ter drive by the Colts and a trio
of fumbles. The running game
produced just 74 yards. Trailing,
26-3 halfway through the fourth
quarter, the Jaguars mounted a
rally and trailed by eight points
with just under two minutes to
play. QB David Garrard was 26
of 35 for 250 yards and a touch-
down. Colts QB Peyton
Manning threw for 324 yards
and a pair of TDs. Jaguar RB
Fred Taylor returned from an
injury ankle but was limited to
just 19 yards on 10 carries.
Jaguar defensive end Reggie
Hayward recorded a pair of
sacks on Manning, becoming
the first NFL player to accom-
plish that feat this season.

Pirates riding


high on game


I winning streak

BETH JONES
News-Leader


The Pirates are on a roll, winning their last four
games as they head into the 13th annual Johnny T.
Smith Holiday Classic this weekend.
The Fernandina Beach High School varsity boys
basketball team will host the tournament, which
honors a former coach of the program. The tour-
nament opens tonight with West Nassau and
Westlake Prep taking the court at 6 p.m. The Pirates
play Middleburg in the night cap at 7:30 p.m.
The Pirates have won seven
of the last eight tournaments,
falling last year in the champi-
onship game to break a seven-
year streak.
"Our players really look for-
ward to this tournament," FBHS
Coach Matt Schreiber said. "It's
one of my favorite times
because past players come .
back. It's good to see them.
They all have fond memories of Brogdon
the tournament because they
played on teams that won it."
The Pirates claimed their
fourth straight victoryTuesday,
defeating Stanton 54-30 in a dis-
trict matchup at Pirate Gym.
Brad Brogdon led the
Pirates with 13 points.
"Brad Brogdon has been our
most steady performer, han-
dling the ball, running the
offense and hitting shots, main-
ly three-point shots," Schreiber
said. Cluff
Another Pirate in double fig-
ures was Matt Cluff, who scored
12 points.
"Matt Cluff has played very well in the last three
_.g;ARe." Schre-iber sadd. "He's made 13 of his last 16
shots. He gets a lot of garbage shots just hanging
around the basket, and that's something we haven't
been doing up to this point."
Pat Dunlap scored nine points, James Southers
scored six and the Pirates got three apiece from
Phillip Morris, DeAndre Perkins, Dan Harrell and
Clint Lewis. Matt Johnsen scored two.
"It's the kind of team you don't know any given
night who you're going to get production from.
John Bailey has had a couple of really good gamn.es.
Pat Dunlap has been pretty steady. James Southers,
DeAndre Perkins and Dan Harrell give us some
reliable defense and some timely baskets. We get
some solid play from both Marquiss and Marquee
Tyler."
The Pirates are now 5-2 overall and 2-1 in the dis-
trict.
"We're winning games mainly due to our
defense," Schreiber said. "We're doing a good job on
the perimeter and not giving up easy shots."

Toumneytime
The 13th annual Johnny T. Smith Holiday
Classic, sponsored by the News-Leader,
will tip off tonight at Pirate Gym. West Nassau
and Westlake Prep play at 6 p.m. followed
by the 7:30 p.m. night cap between Fernandina

Vanessa Koppel of Fernandina Beach placed
seventh in the nation at a recent weightlifting
tournament.


Vanessa Koppel of Fernandina Beach competed in
her first national weightlifting competition, the
American Open Weightlifting Championships in
Kissimmee earlier this month, as a member of the
Women's Team Florida Weightlifting. She placed sev-
enth in the country in her weight class (48 kg) by,lift-
ing a 35 kg snatch and a 53 kg clean-and-jerk.
Koppel, a freshman at Episcopal High School in
Jacksonville, was the only athlete from the First Coast
area of any age, sex or weight class to compete in this
year's American Open and she is the only female
from Jacksonville to ever qualify for the American
Open, which has nearly 200 qualifiers per year.
"Vanessa did an outstanding job," said Jesse
Reynolds, Koppel's coach. "She is only 15 and has
already competed in the American Open. There are
lifters who train their entire lives and never make it to
that meet. I am incredibly proud of her and I consid-
er it a blessing to coach her."
The Women's Team Florida Weightlifting took
fourth place in the country and the Men's Team

Trio of local hunters bring down wild Nassau boar


Alien Mills reports good wild boar hunting
on a private Nassau County hunt club dur-
ing recent days. Mills took a 270-pound
boar with a 12-gauge shotgun. Also hunt-
ing on the same hunt club property were Bo
Stevenson and his nephew, Jeremy Paetsch. Both
hunters killed hogs weighing over 200 pounds
each!
Mark Bryan reports excellent striper fishing in
the St. Marys River during the falling tide for line
siders weighing up to five pounds.
"Some of the best striper
fishing has been coming right
in the Crandall area during the
last of the falling tide," Bryan
f.- i 'j :[i said. "We have been casting
plastic tail led head jigs at the
mouths of deep creeks when
', the stripers have been school-
S.l:;':./ ing. We did hook a pair of
stripers that just kept on swim-
Sming and never stopped. Both
Terry Lacoss caused the jig hook to pull free.
--- ... I know those fish were much
ON THE larger than the five pound
stripers that we landed that
WATER very same day."
Quarter-ounce led head jigs
rigged with white plastic curly tails have been pro-
ducing the best action both in the St Marys and
Nassau river systems for stripers weighing to eight
pounds.
River fishermen can expect to catch red drum
and sea trout while striper fishing too.
Red bass are schooling during the middle of the
falling tide at boat docks, creek mouths and oyster
bars located next to deep sloughs. Some of the best
action is coming while fishing with live shrimp and
bullhead minnows under small floats.
Sea trout are also running during the falling tide
while drifting live shrimp deep under a trout float at
the St. Marys rock jetties. The mouth of Sawpit
Creek at Nassau Sound is also producing good sea
trout action during the last of the incoming tide
with this same deadly sea trout fishing tactic.
However, one of the hottest sea trout drops in

recent days has been Egans Creek. Sea trout are
running throughout this fishy creek during the
entire falling tide and can be caught trolling led
head jigs or with live shrimp under a float.
Back sea bass are biting offshore at many of-the
fish havens while fishing with fresh local squid and
cut baits. Red snapper fishing is good at FC reef
while grouper are running at Schultz's Fish Market.
A few black drum are showing up at the tip of
the St. Marys south jetties during the incoming tide
and the deep waters off from Fort Clinch. Fishing
right on the bottom with fresh shrimp is producing
black drum weighing up to 15 pounds.


The whiting fishing remains excellent along the
beaches of Amelia Island during the incoming tide
while, fishing with fresh shrimp.
' A high tide will arrive at 9:47 a.m. Saturday and
a low tide at 3:51 p.m.

mit photographs of their catches. We will publish them
in this space on Fridays. E-mail photos to

Fish measurement
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission approved a series of rules to clarify
and standardize how anglers should measure the
total length of various saltwater finfish.
The new rules specify that the "total length" of
saltwater fish, such as red drum, spotted sea
trout and snook, should be measured by deter-
mining the straight line distance from the most
forward point of the head with the mouth closed,
to the farthest tip of the tail with the tail com-
pressed or squeezed together, while the fish is
lying on its side.
However, there is no change to the way the
"fork length" of saltwater fish, such as Spanish
mackerel, pompano, and cobia, should be meas-
ured. Fork length measurements are considered
to be easily understood by fishermen and do not
need further clarification. Another new rule
changes measurement for gray triggerfish from
total length to fork length to be consistent with
the way this species is measured in federal
waters.
The goal of these rules is to provide a stan-
dard measurement procedure for the total length
of saltwater fish that is understood by resident
and visiting anglers and that may be uniformly
enforced by officers in the field.
