News-Leader
Nassau County Tax Collector
Gwen Miller rehired her former
deputy this week two months
after his resignation and two weeks
after he took another job with the
county.
Michael Love, 40, returned to
work Tuesday in the tax collector's
office, where he will now serve as
finance director.
His salary of $63,000 is equiva-
lent to what he would have made
had he not resigned as Miller's
chief deputy on Oct. 30.
Love left after just 14 months
on that job, then took a technology
position in the county administra-
tor's office for a considerably lower
salary, about $52,000, earlier this
month.
Miller replaced Love with Neil

Christmas tree shopping came
with a larger price tag for City Hall.
This year the city spent $9,172 to
adorn the foot of Centre Street with
a waterproof, weather-resistant 24-
foot-tall artificial Christmas tree.
The city also dispersed $2,140 of
the original $16,000 budget, allo-
cated to purchase a taller tree, for
bows to decorate the tree and down-
town light poles.

News-Leader
Nassau County School board
members considered a range of
issues from whether district
employees must live in the coun-
ty where they work, to substitute
teacher pay, to club sponsorships
- at a policy workshop Dec. 8.
But time ran out long before
their list of discussion items and
they continued the session until
next month.
Among the more contentious
proposals was board Chair Muriel
Creamer's suggestion that school
district employees must live in
Nassau County as a condition of
their employment.
"I don't support that because

board Vice Chair Gail Cook.
Others worried that it might
restrict the pool of job applicants.
"I think we need to look broad
and wide for the best people," said
board member Kathy Burns.


"I understand where Muriel
Creamer is coming from in terms
of community," said board mem-
ber Janet Adkins, but she worried
about the legality of such a move.
"I think that's a discrimination
issue that could also be a legality
issue," said Cook.
School board attorney Dixon
Bridgers agreed and said he
would research the matter and
report back to the board.
Adkins' suggestion that the
board consider an amendment to
its rules, in effect giving it the flex-
ibility to "waive" rules in special
circumstances, led to another
lengthy debate.

The manmade tree, expected to
last five years, replaced the usual
live tree that turned gray before
the culmination of downtown fes-
tivities, City Attorney Debra Braga
said.
Local residents ordinarily donat-

"We've got something real

make it as attractive as it is,"
Roberts said. "And it's real. And we

But Crow later withdrew his crit-
icism of the imitation evergreen.
"I made an issue of the plastic
tree downtown when I first heard
about it," he said. "(But) everybody
says it looks nice."
"I was as surprised as anyone
at how well the tree did look," said
Mayor Ken Walker, who joined his
wife and children in illuminating
the tree at a ceremony Dec. 3.
"You have to get almost on top of
it to realize it's not a real tree," he
said.

TIME TO PUT UP THE TREE


SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
Joan, Laura and Douglas Dean, from left, of Fernandina Beach load a Christmas tree Sunday
at Poppell's Produce tree lot on Geiger Road. "I don't know if there's going to be enough room
left for you, Laura," Douglas Dean joked to his granddaughter.

dom to waive the rule, or to have
one clear, unambiguous rule and
everybody abides by it?" Bridgers
asked. The board agreed to work
on crafting a separate policy on
waiving rules.
The board also agreed to incor-
porate an annual review of substi-
tute teacher pay and employment
into its calendar and to reconsider
the rules governing long-term sub-
stitutes. Currently, only teachers
who are certified earn more pay
once they become long-term. A
substitute is considered long-term
after filling a position more than 11
days in a row.
"I think they should be paid
more," said Ruis of certified long-
term substitutes.
'We disagree on this. We don't
even agree to disagree," said
Cook. "If (a non-certified teacher
is) in there past the 11 days ...
they just have to continue to do
everything a teacher would but
not get paid for it... and you think
that's fair?" she asked, adding that

they aren't getting paid" the same
amount, said Cook.
"Like she said, some people

long-term substitute without a
degree in the school district,
but agreed with Cook's recom-
mendation that they gather
more information and revisit the
issue.
Referring to a recent news
story about a national gay and les-
bian group attempting to estab-
lish clubs at Northeast Florida
high schools, Adkins asked
whether the board should draft a
rule that school clubs must be ini-
tiated at the local level.
"When you have any national
organization that has an agenda,
that wants to push that agenda on
this county and school district,"
there needs to be some recourse,


she argued.
'"What you could end up doing,
if you're not careful, is having to
eliminate all clubs," said Cook.
Bridgers said he would
research the issue and report back
to the board.
About the only thing the board
did agree on at the workshop was
a change in the policy governing
bid openings to require the board
chair or a designee to be present
for all construction bids and bids
of $75,000 or more.
Susan Farmer, executive direc-
tor of business services, will draft
the wording for the board to vote
on at a later date.

House fire


dangers


increase
The holiday season is here and
that means parties, decorations and
an increased chance for house fires.
'The holiday season is a special
time of year, and the last thing we
want to see is everything ruined by
a devastating house fire," said Fire
Chief Chuck Cooper. "Many fire-
fighters have witnessed the heart-
breaking way a fire can destroy a
family's holiday in minutes."
The Nassau County Fire
Prevention Bureau suggests:
Do not use an extension cord
with electric heaters. Always make
sure the heater is listed for use and
plugged into a wall receptacle. Make
sure it's not too close to a bed or1
chair, or anything combustible.
Maintain a three-foot clearance from
anything that might catch fire.
Fireplaces and wood-burning
stoves should be serviced regular-
ly to avoid creosote buildup in chim-
neys and vent pipes. Only seasoned
wood, not trash or Christmas trees,
should be burned.
All too often people, especial-
ly the elderly, crack open a gas or
propane oven to use it for supple-
mental heat. When gas or propane
burn they create carbon monoxide
and the home's occupants can be
overcome by the deadly fumes.
Cut Christmas trees should
be fresh when put up and kept well
watered. A dry tree can be engulfed
by fire in 15 seconds and the fire
flashover in the room can happen in
about one minute.
Never leave a candle burning
when you leave the house. Always
have a good base for it so children
and pets do not knock over the can-
dle and start a fire.

LOVE Continued from 1A
Monday, Love said he was
happy to return to Miller's office
now that his duties would be more
specialized.
Previously, Love said he held a
range of duties that encompassed
finances, administration and tech-
nology. The workload often
caused him to work 60 hours a
week.
"There was so much activity
in the office and the hours were
really long," he said. "Now I can
go back and get my own job and
own office. It will be a real dream."
Blalock said Monday he
looked forward to working with
Love and making the office more
efficient by splitting the adminis-
trative and financial duties.
He and Miller discussed the
need for a finance director short-
ly after he took the position of
deputy, he said.
"It's more than a one-person
job (in this office)," Blalock said.
"It's a two-, three- or four-person
job. We discussed hiring a finance
director shortly after I started and
saw the scope of what was going
on here."
Miller said once a decision had
been made to add a finance direc-
tor, Love was the logical person
since his previous duties included
handling the office's finances.
"We considered advertising


the position, but Michael
appeared on the scene and it was
the quickest, easiest solution to
work out for all of us," she said.
"He's familiar with the finances
because he's dealt with them
before, and it would have been
easier than training someone
new."
Miller said transferring coun-
ty employees between constitu-
tional or county offices has hap-
pened previously.
Blalock said Miller will be able
to amend her budget to pay for
both positions. The office usually
operates with a surplus of more
than $1 million, much of which
Miller transfers to the county com-
missioners' budget each year.
The county administrator's
office said it will now need to fill
the new vacancy created by Love's
return to the tax office.
County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said he had no objec-
tions to Love's return to the tax
office, and said it will benefit coun-
ty government if it makes Miller's
office more efficient.
"We are a big family in Nassau

County government and I am
certainly willing to work with
Mrs. Miller on what is good for
her office," Mahaney said. "It's a
good opportunity for (Love) and
we just couldn't compete with her
offer."

If your sister's twisted,



this boutique is for you


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader

Sisters, a new bou-
tique at 215 Centre
St. opened, it was
the culmination of a dream for
the owner, Kim Holwell, a former
beauty queen.
"Having a boutique in
Fernandina Beach was always a
goal I just didn't know when I'd
be able to do it," says Holwell,
who worked for a health-care
company based in Georgia for
many years. She owns a business
similar to Twisted Sisters in
Quitman, Ga.
"That store was a testing
ground for the one in Fernandina
Beach, which is really where we
wanted to be," she says. She and
her family still live in Homerville,
and she commutes, staying here
part-time in a place they bought
two weeks ago. She and her hus-
band, "Buddy," plan to move
here as soon as possible and
enroll their 5-year-old twins in a
local school this coming fall.
They also have a 21-year-old
daughter and a 19-year-old son.
"Being here seems so natural
to me. When I was growing up,
this was where we took all our
vacations. We loved to play in the
woods, and I am sorry to see it
all disappearing. I think of what
the people moving here now
have missed."
Her father's passing was the
catalyst that set her on the road
she really wanted to take.
"He was a workaholic and
so am I. We were very close, and
he always wanted us to have our
own business," she says..


ALICE WALSH/NEWS-LEADER
Kim Holwell, owner of Twisted Sisters boutique in downtown
Fernandina Beach, offers ladies apparel, accessories and one-
of-a-kind gift items that will appeal to those looking for some-
thing a little different.


"He was only 67 when we lost
him, and it made me realize how.
rapidly the years pass and how
short our lifetime really is. So
my 'someday' dream became a
'do it now'.project."
Twisted Sisters is a curious
name for a boutique. How was it
chosen?

Holwell replies: "I do have a
sister who has some items in the
store for sale, but that's the
extent of her involvement.
Rather, it stems from the fact that
we offer clothing and gift items
that are a little different; there's
lots of'bling-bling,' such as jeans
and jean tops accented with jew-
eled buttons and embroidery.
Fashion with a twist. We carry
.both dressy and casual clothing,
but I want to keep the products
eclectic, fun and fresh.
"We carry clothing by new
designers, such as Melly M, Ann
Veronica, Gretchen Scott, as well
as Molly B. We also carry home
d6cor items and accessories as
well as ladies apparel.
"Tm trying to offer a range of.

Be prepared to pay more



for homeowner insurance


insurance companies are
leaving Florida -.like evac-
uees of a storm after being
blown away by mounting
homeowners' claims from hurri-
cane damage.
Some major insurance compa-
nies are canceling policies, rais- -
ing rates, or pulling out altogeth-
er. Even several smaller insurers
considered to be last-resort
options are also leaving the state.
These companies often pick up
insurance for homeowners who
are dropped by bigger insurers.
In the end, homeowners will
be left with fewer options for
homeowners' insurance espe-
cially those living near the ocean,
as on Amelia Island. This equa-
tion normally adds up to higher
rates.
Some homeowners have
received notices that their insur-
ance coverage will not be
renewed. Most of the cancella-
tions are reportedly done ran-
domly.
These homeowners will have
until the non-renewal date to
secure new coverage.

However, with the latest news
about the second-tier, higher-risk
companies also pulling out of
Florida, homeowners may have
even fewer options.
Insurance companies have
pulled out of Florida before, after
periods of extreme hurricane
activity. But the Sunshine State is
not the only place scrambling for
willing insurance companies.

Victims
of Hurricane

received an
untimely gift


this month. It was sort of like
getting coal in their stockings.
For the last 90 days, many vic-
tims of the hurricane in Florida,
Alabama, Louisiana and
Mississippi did not have to make
mortgage payments if their hous-
es or businesses were damaged.
The 90-day grace ended this
month just in time for the holi-
days, you might say.
This coldly means the mort-
gage is now due.
Banks and mortgage compa-
nies honored a federal request to
give homeowners and business
owners 90 days to get their lives
back in order. However, these
lenders will not allow outstand-

long.

raising rates, or pulling
out altogether


may not be too harsh on those
who simply cannot make pay-
ments. You see, much of the
property owned by these victims
is damaged, under water, or
unusable. And banks are not
eager to foreclose on such prop-
erties with little value.
So the good news is that the
victims may have an even longer
grace period. It is something that
will be handled on a case-by-case
basis, according to reports.

Gas prices have fallen recent-

around the country.
In many locations, prices for a
gallon of regular gas have
dropped almost $1 from their
highs just a few months ago.
Higher inventories, slackened,
demand (from the sticker-shock
prices), and attempts to pump
more oil are responsible.

Thanksgiving labor of love


relies on volunteer efforts


A labor of love.
That's how Gale Ulmer, co-
owner of Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q
in Fernandina Beach, describes
Thanksgiving Day at the restau-
rant.
For the 'past five years, Gale
and husband Mickey have closed
the restaurant for a "private func-
tion," as the marquee states.
Guests of four local agencies
become restaurant patrons,
served and catered to by about
two dozen volunteers.
Referred by the Council on
Aging, Northeast Florida
Community Action Agency, East
Nassau Ministerial Association
and the Barnabas Center, guests
and their families are served a full
Thanksgiving dinner, preceded by
a prayer of thanksgiving.
Volunteers include members of
the referral agencies, but come
mostly from the Ulmer's friends
and family.
Police Chaplain Roland Knight
and his family helped, set" uup
Wednesday night after the restau-
rant closed, and the other volutin-
teers started showing up at 8 a.m.
to cook, clean, decorate tables with
"Thanksgiving trees" and set up

the buffet line.
The trees are an Ulmer tradi-
tion, where dinner began with
each family member telling what
he or she was grateful for. For this
particular dinner, extra "tree
leaves" were placed on the tables
so guests could write their own
notes of thankfulness.
Some volunteers, like Kerry
Jarvis and Don Rogers, have par-
ticipated since the Ulmers began
this event. They worked with
Mickey Ulmer in Atlanta, and trav-
el here annually to help. Others,
like Lou and Susan Goldman and
Mary Jo and Bruce Morrison,
made this their inaugural effort.
They, along with other friends of
the Ulmers, each decided to
help out because they volunteer
around the community and want-
ed to be involved in this special
project.
Roberto Pestana, owner of
Espafia Restaurant, helped in the
preparations while his family was
out of town..?. : ,-
Mari Heron, executive direc-
tor of the Council on Aging, and


Christine Raysor, executive direc-
tor of the Northeast Florida
Community Action Agency, greet-
ed and seated guests, along with
the Rev. Swearingen, and they
were instrumental in ensuring that
things ran smoothly.
"The Ulmers are fabulous to
open this for the community,"
Heron said. "Our guests who par-
ticipate have no family and are by
themselves for the holidays. This
gives them a chance to see people
they recognize, socialize and have
a wonderful meal. This is what
Thanksgiving is all about."
In addition to providing all the
food and fixings, turkey and all

Concours d'Elegance to feature


alternate fuels, alternate power


Spectators at the annual Amelia
Island Concours d'Elegance have
come to expect the unexpected and
the 2006 show will be no different
with a collection of alternate fuel
and alternate power vehicles
planned for display, according to
Bill Warner, founder and chairman.
"For many years, the automo-
tive industry has been questioned
for not offering alternate fueled or
alternate powered vehicles to the
marketplace and for not seriously
investing in research to develop
them," Warner said in a press
release.
"What most people don't real-
ize is that a number of options have
been explored as far back as the
1800's. With the uncertainty sur-
rounding gas prices and fuel avail-
ability, a resurgence of this tech-
nology is beginning to take place
and our show will take the public on
a journey and, hopefully, open some
eyes."
A wide variety of vehicles is slat-
ed for the invitation-only Concours,
which will celebrate its 11th year in

IN BRIEF

Harvest feast
Harris Teeter kicked off its
Harvest Feast Campaign on Oct.
30 with its annual Harvest Feast
Dinner in Raleigh, N.C., serving a
free traditional Thanksgiving
meal to 3,400 people.
Harris Teeter also partnered
with the Washington Redskins
and Ryan Homes for a massive
food distribution event on Nov.
22. The event provided over 4,000
individuals with a free Tyson ham
and all the traditional fixings.
Harris Teeter concluded the
Harvest Feast campaign on Nov.
25 with a Harvest Feast Dinner in
Charlotte, N.C., which fed an
additional 4,248 individuals in
need.
In addition to placing collec-
tion bins in the front of all 145
Harris Teeter stores, including
the one on Amelia Island, shop-
pers were also encouraged to pur-
chase $5 and $10 donation cards
at tie.register. Over 38,000
pounds of food was collected
through the donation bins and
$55,477 worth of Harvest Feast
Donation Cards were purchased.
"The Harvest Feast Campaign
is cu'ilmunity building at: it.berlI."
said Fred M:'igajnliall. p idJe-nt
of Harris Teeter, in a press
release.


2006. From the 1800s up to present
day offerings, steam, turbine, elec-
tric, solar, hydrogen, and hybrid
vehicles will be on display.
Additionally, one of the featured
marques for 2006 will be Stanley
Steamer and a collection of these
iconic steam cars from across the
U.S. is being assembled by Warner.
Not considered practical or eco-
nomical in the past, development of
alternate fueled and alternate pow-
ered vehicles by auto manufactur-
ers such as GM and Ford is now
receiving serious attention. For
example, a primary thrust of GM at
this year's North American


International Auto show in Detroit
was the introduction of the
"Sequel," a hydrogen-powered pro-
totype, and Ford's hybrid vehicles
continue to gain acceptance.
The 2006 Amelia Island
Concours d'Elegance is scheduled
to be held March 10-12 at The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia Island. The fea-
tured marques will be Jaguar and
Stanley Steamer and the honoree
will be three-time Indy 500 winner
Johnny Rutherford.
The show's foundation has
donated nearly $1.4 niillion to
Community Hospice of Northeast
Florida, Inc. since 1996.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


We will miss
Dr. Sharps
Though I am not sure what the
statistics are in all denominations,
it is commonly circulated that the
average length of a pastor's tenure
in a church is about 18 months.
For 17 years, First Presbyterian
Church, Fernandina Beach, was
blessed to have a loving and faith-
ful pastor in Dr. Conrad Sharps
("Hearing God's call, minister
assumes a new mission," Dec. 2).
After 17 years of serving in
Fernandina Beach, Dr. Sharps has
been called to another church in
Birmingham, Ala. Can you believe
that leaving Amelia Island for
Birmingham? This truly must bela
call from God!
On Dec. 4, First Presbyterian
Church roasted their shepherd at
Walker's Landing. (Does this
sound right "The sheep roasting
the shepherd?") This special occa-
sion was full of laughter and fun
while at the same time experienc-
ing the sorrow of saying "good-
bye" to one who has loved and
served this congregation through
the years. Those present, even
those who did the roasting, voiced
and demonstrated their deep affec-
tion for the Sharps family.
As a fellow pastor, I can tell you
that Conrad has not only been
accessible to his people at First
Presbyterian Church, he has been
a friend and a brother to the min-
isters in our community.
Neil Helton, President
East Nassau County
Ministerial Association

Recycling suffers
Recently I attempted to use the
recycling facility at the Island Walk
shopping center. I keep a special
bin at home for numbers 1 and 2
plastic containers. When the bin
is full, I take it to the dumpster at
the shopping center. When I


arrived at the site, there was no
dumpster, but instead a sign stating
that due to the lack of responsibil-
ity of the folks using this facility, it
was removed.
I am not surprised at this action.
On many occasions I have
observed a blatant disregard for
the posted signs requesting only
numbers 1 and 2 plastic containers.
I have seen all manner of trash
deposited, including everything
from children's bicycles to auto-
mobile batteries. When the dump-
ster was full, instead of taking their
trash home for another day, it was
just dumped on the ground around
the facility at the mercy of the ele-
ments. I understand that a local
sanitation company maintained this
facility as a public service. I can't
say I blame them for their deci-
sion.
Now the rest of us who used
the facility responsibly will have
to add our recyclable plastic to our
household trash and shorten the
life of the county landfill. As far as
I know, there is now no longer a
place to recycle magazines, cata-
logues or plastic on the island.
Thanks to a few shortsighted indi-
viduals,,the rest of us are paying
the price.

Are libraries vital?

Libraries will be closed Dec. 23-26

vital part of our community, or just
a kind afterthought to be open as

ty funds? Tell us the reasoning.

On her side
I am writing for two reasons.
The first is to thank Mike Boyle for
his column about City Clerk
Cassandra Mitchell ("Is our fair
city truly being fair?" Dec. 2). Even
though Mike is a newcomer to the
island he figured it all out and took
the time to publicly voice his opin-
ion in support of Cass.
I speak from experience as a
former coworker and longtime
friend of Cass. I can't say enough
about her conscientiousness and
loyalty to this city. I am just embar-
rassed that a newcomer had to
speak out before I did. Which leads
me to my second reason for writ-
ing. And that is to apologize to my
friend Cass for not showing my
support sooner by calling or writ-
ing her.
I also commend her for taking
responsibility for a mistake and
not pointing a finger, which is ari all
too common practice today.
I don't intend to go into the
rights and wrongs of this situation
since enough has been said.
Hopefully Cass will read this and
know I am on her side.

Kindness ofa stranger
The doorbell was ringing. I was
working on the computer, the chil-
dren were being demanding, my
life was full and I was beginning to
feel empty when I went to the door.
There stood a strong looking, tall
young man who quickly explained
he had been working on my neigh-
bor's roof and had noticed a prob-
lem with mine.
I stepped outside to look at the
problem. He explained the "Oash-
ing" in place in my roof, which was

from my air conditioner, was actu-
ally set so water was pouring direct-
ly on the air conditioner every time
it rained. He explained that this
would cause the air conditioner to
fail years before it should. We chat-
ted briefly about the problem when
he offered to fix it. I asked, "How
much will it cost?" He stated that
the flashing was very inexpensive
and he could come back and do it
for a small fee of $25.
I was dismayed as I am finan-
cially in a very tight spot. I
explained I had recently been given
two young children to care for and
I had no extra money, not even $25.
He said if I have that dolor flashing
in my truck, I will just fix it for you.
I thanked him. He came back and
stated he did not have the right
color but would return on
Wednesday.
I didn't hold my breath. Sure
enough, I came home from taking
the children to the dentist and

much to my amazement he did
come back and he did fix the prob-
lem, leaving no bill for his- servic-
es. I cried.':
This stranger was nicer to me
than my own neighbors have been.
I had been praying about my situ-
ation and felt God was working to
help me. This man showed such
kindness to me, a stranger, I was
overwhelmed with gratitude.
Today, there are not many
working people who would stop
and let you know you had a prob-
lem, never mind fix the problem
purely out of the kindness of their
heart. This man's name is Tom
Jost and his business is A1A
Inspections. You can be sure when
I get back on my feet he will be the
first person I call to help with the
house problems that, at times,
seem endless.
For example, my water soften-
er stopped working, my bathroom
faucets both broke down at the
same time, the showerhead needs


replacing, the dryer is making a
squeaking sound and on the list
goes. I tell myself to not worry,
trust God and get through one day
at a time. When that young man
arrived to address'a problem Iwas-
n't even aware of, well, you know
how the story ends. I cannot help
but be amazed how good my God
is to send this good.man my w.ay
with the best Christmas gift I have
ever received: kindness

A shot of reality:


the butt of jokes


on a bicycle
M aybe you read about the new study
that shows most adults no longer can
receive injections in their rear ends for
two reasons: the needles are too little
and the rear ends are too big.
The problem is standard-size needles often do
not reach the buttock muscle. Two-thirds of the
patients who subjected themselves to this study
did not get the full dosage of the drug.
What we need are some
of the late Ann Dudley's old
needles. We called her "the
Shot Lady." She was the
nurse several decades ago
that came around to our
schools immunizing us kids
against all kinds of illnesses.
Her needles were long
enough to track down the
smallest muscle holding
together the biggest der-

Hudgins remember.

smelled like Miss Dudley's
drugs. Some children actually used it

Is it odd to you that some churches have can-
celed services Christmas Day because it falls on a
Sunday? Attendance will be down, they say.
Of course, it'll be down. Folks will be traveling
to be with families. Many have parties to attend.
But what about the people who won't be traveling
or partying? What about those who might be lone-
ly or just staying at home, looking forward to see-
ing their friends at church? What about those who
think it's good that Christmas falls on their day of
worship?
Oh, well. We do need to accommodate people,
don't we? Isn't that what "theology lite" implies?
Accommodation? Political correctness? I'm OK,
you're OK
Perhaps that's one reason we're being con-
sumed by the "Happy Holidays" syndrome, for
which there is no vaccine or needle long enough
to change anything. We wouldn't want to offend
folks by wishing them "Merry Christmas," would
we?
Why can't we honor each other's beliefs by call-
ing religious holidays by their proper names?
One of my sons-in-law has given me a mountain
bike he no longer rides. The old saying must be
true: One never forgets how to ride a bicycle.
'But some things have changed. I don't have to
roll up the right leg of my dungarees to ride now,
but I refuse to buy a pair of those tight, black
shorts that look like leotards that have been
washed too many times.
I will need to buy a helmet to keep from getting
killed, but not one of those things shaped like a
slice of cantaloupe. i
Bikes didn't have gears when I was growing up,
but they had play motors. We'd use a clothespin to
attach a stiff piece of cardboard to one wheel, let-
ting the cardboard protrude into the spokes.
When the wheel turned, the cardboard would go
putt-putt-putt, just like a motor.
But the biggest change seems to be the size of
the seat Or is it the size of my seat?
Wonder how long a needle it'd take to strike
muscle.

mixed bag: the traditional holiday gift giv-
ing, celebration and family gatherings,
yes, but also, at least politically, a sense of
uncertainty and cynicism, two terms incongruous
with the season.
The city's politically active are wondering just
what king of government might work best here, and
whether or not our continually threatened identity
and character will survive the water-torture-like per-
sistence of developers and re-developers.
Meanwhile, county voters yes, Fernandina resi-
dents fall into this category, too are just hoping for
some outward appearance of competence, just a
semblance would do,, from their county commission-
ers. An occasional rational vote by county elected
representatives would do wonders to lift the spirits
of a dispirited electorate.
But let's pause for just a minute and put aside
those legitimate concerns. Let's take a minute to
acknowledge the fact, the absolute fact, that even
with all of our political and governmental concerns,
we live in the best place op the face of the Earth.
Let's take time to appreciate just a few of the things
that, at least in my opinion, make it so.
Volunteers. It is my belief that we have more
volunteers per capital than anywhere else in the
world. From police chaplains to religious organiza-
tions to mentors to tutors to just about any public
service-oriented group or individual you can think
of, they are here in Fernandina Beach and Nassau
County, and by their example encourage us all to be
better people.
State parks. Take some time out of your busy
schedule to ride, walk, run or cycle down the roads
and paths of Fort Clinch and Big and Little Talbot
islands. You cannot, even if you try, leave those

serene places in anything
other an exalted state of
mind.
Local parks..Central,
North Beach, Seaside, Main
Beach and the multitude of
neighborhood parks that set
this community apart from so
many others. This year a
county Commissioner in St.
John's county was thumping
his chest and proclaiming
Ponte Vedra as having more
public beach accesses than
any community on the east
coast of Florida I think he
was celebrating maybe four
or five, that's right, four or


five public beach accesses.
Well, Fernandina Beach has over 50, and has had
for almost 25 years. We are fortunate that the people
of Fernandina Beach have always valued the ability
of the public to be able to reach and enjoy their
beach, and have refused to relinquish that right to
any special interest or individual.
The greenway. The current vice mayor has
questioned the value of this publicly created project,
repeatedly referring to it as a "boondoggle." This
individual, and others who would define "value"
strictly in monetary terms, are completely without
vision. It is a special place now, but imagine what it
will mean to this community 50 or 100 years from
now. If the Hawaiianization of Amelia Island contin-
ues, and it will, such a place of tranquility will be
priceless.
The arts community. Singers, actors, painters,
writers, poets, all add tremendously to the quality of


Even with our political and
governmental concerns, we live in thA

life on this island.
The waterfront. On a clear evening, take a
walk down to the waterfront at sunset The
spectacle, especially in the winter sky, is unbeliev-
ably wonderful. Reds, deep blues, white, high
cirrus clouds, all make this island's sunset some-
thing to behold.
Those are just a few, a very few, of the things I
believe we should appreciate this holiday season.
The American Heritage Dictionary of the
English Language defines appreciate as: "1.) To rec-
ognize the quality, significance, or magnitude of. 2)
To be fully aware of or sensitive to; realize. 3) To be
thankful or show gratitude for. 4.) To admire great-
ly; value."
Well, we should all recognize the significance of
our volunteer groups and individuals, and we should
realize the great "value" of the greenway and all of
our parks and open spaces, and we should be thank-
ful for such an active community of artists.
To appreciate every element of this community
that makes up our unique character and identity is
to recognize each of these elements and be thankful
for them. We are a fortunate place, indeed.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

U unfortunately, and all too fre-
quently, individuals elected
to office at the national level.
don't live up to the trust we
have given them. Congress as a group
is one of the least liked or trusted
parts of our society, although mem-
bers in their home districts rank much
higher. The notoriety and publicity
that is given to a politician who stum-
bles is much greater than the press
coverage given to the many who do an
honest job every day. When I teach
school, I tell the students that if you
kiss your wife, it

My first experi-
A V. d^ enne6nIa personally
basis with this issue
Frey was Watergate and
President Nixon. I
had been elected
the same year Nixon was elected pres-
ident I respected, liked and admired
President Nixon. When the break-in
of Watergate was first reported, I did-
n't give it much thought. Everyone
knew that there is nothing of value in
a political headquarters, certainly no
secrets that could make a difference.
At the time, Nixon was leading in 49 of
the 50 states, so the race wasn't close.
As Watergate unfolded, one was
completely baffled as to how someone
as brilliant as President Nixon, some-
one who had been in politics for so
many years, could do something that
was so incredibly stupid. I have strug-
gled to find the answer over these
many years. One can only speculate
that arrogance and a feeling of invinci-
bility overtook the president, aided
and abetted by his staff. They just felt
the rules didn't matter as far as they
were concerned. Over the years I
have watched other extremely smart
and seasoned people make the same
mistakes, whether it was Koreagate,
Abscam, the post office scandal, or
just recently, former Congressman
Duke Cunningham (R-Calif.).
Unlike Nixon, I did not know
Cunningham well and only had met
him several times in Washington, D.C.
Here was an individual who was a gen-
uine hero. He entered active duty in
the U.S. Navy in 1966 and was
released as a commander in 1988 after
service as a fighter pilot during the

Vietnam conflict He was nominated
for the Congressional Medal of Honor
and awarded the Navy Cross, two
Silver Stars, 15 air medals and a
Purple Heart He was shot down once
and barely avoided being captured.
After being elected to Congress in
1990, he served on the powerful
House Appropriations Committee. Yet
this same individual pleaded guilty to
accepting over $2.4 million in bribes
from the defense contractors that
included everything from a new boat,
a party for one of his two daughters, a
* Rolls Royce and approximately
S100.000 in cash. One has to ask the
same question: What went wrong?
What screw came loose? How could


someone who has served this country
so well, who has proved his valor time
and time again, be so dumb?
Again, I really have no answers,
but one has to believe that he became
subject to the same disease that
President Nixon suffered from: that
he thought he was above the law; that
the rules were not made for him.
I think it would be beneficial that
all new members of Congress be
required to look at the case histories
of some of these outstanding individu-
als who went wrong. The temptations
are there. No one is perfect
However, there is a right and a wrong.
And the damage isn't just to the indi-
vidual, his or her family and friends.


It's to our system.
I have not totally recovered from
the Watergate scandal and the disap-

VIEWPOINT/PRESLEY HOLUNGSWORTH/ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS


Realtors help build better community


t has been my distinct honor and pleasure to
serve as the 2005 president of the Amelia Island-
Nassau County Association of Realtors.
Enhancing this privilege has been a responsibili-
ty and duty to our members, to our community and
to ourselves.
In retrospect, any retiring president recounts
those "accomplishments" and "goals met and
exceeded" with certain satisfaction, realizing that on
his or her watch, the organization has progressed,
assumed challenges, undertaken tasks and hopefully
made a difference.
As I look at a listing of 2005 accomplishments, rm
pleased and proud. Pleased that each of our mem-
bers takes seriously his or her role in representing
our profession in a polished, respectful and profes-
sional manner, subscribing diligently to our code of
ethics. They work hard to secure and maintain spe-
cialty designations, with a continuous goal of profes-
sional and personal competence.
There's more.
This past year has seen a continuation of an
expansive housing market More people have been
encouraged to share the dream of ownership.
Workforce housing is becoming a major concern


being addressed by local
builders and developers. Smart
growth is emerging as a dedicat-
ed practice, not just a whipped-
cream euphemism.
The association has taken
great strides in forging and en-
couraging collaborations. We
eagerly share our philosophy
that what's good for one associa-
Hollingsworth tion can have great, positive
impact on our entire community
the community our Realtors
not only market, but live, play and socialize in!
We've worked diligently with county and city
staff, and encourage open feedback and dialogue for
everyone's benefit.
I would be remiss if I didn't spend just a moment
recounting some of our association's wonderful ven-
tures, collaborative efforts all:
The "Ramp It Up" program under the auspices
of SHIP has allowed our members to build wheel-
chair ramps for homebound citizens, at no cost to
the citizen and with volunteer labor. Our signature
project, we're looking to build one ramp a month.


Working with Nassau County Emergency
Management and the city of Fernandina Beach Fire
, Department, we co-presented two "After the Disaster
Business Continuity" seminars fortuitous, in light
of recent weather patterns.
We firmly embody the adage of "giving back
where you live." Investing in a four-year scholarship
for a deserving college student provides an educa-
tional opportunity benefiting everyone.
Golf tournaments are always fun. We of course
maintained our annual Builder-Realtor Charity
Tournament, and recently awarded more than
$3,000 to local organizations. This year we held an
inaugural Mad Monday Realtor Charity Golf Shoot-
Out, resulting in more than $13,000 to local charita-
ble and civic organizations.
And, in the midst of all this, we celebrated the
association's silver anniversary, with recognition
from both the city and county.
This, then, is why I stand proud and honored.
Proud of heading an organization with purpose, with
focus, with the community's good at its heart
I humbly thank you for this opportunity.
Presley Hollingsworth is 2005 president of the
Amelia Island-Nassau County Association of Realtors.

seven to eight yards. Two mem-
bers took care of the necessary
homemaking duties, cleaning,
cooking and washing clothes for
the workers at the Pearl River
Baptist Association Assembly,
where the team ate and slept.
The remainder of the team
spent a day and a half cleaning,
sanding and painting inside the
badly damaged First Baptist
Church building. Then they spent
one and a half days in two houses
where the water level had reached
the roof. There, they finished
removing sheet rock, floor and
.bathroom tile ceilings, cabinets,
ventilation ducts and electrical
wiring.
The last day was spent mucking
out a two-story house built on stilts
about three miles from the beach.
The owner had health problems,
and nothing had been done to the
house in three months. The team
removed the ruined furnishings,
carpets, tile, sheet rock and insu-
lation.
"Most of the damage was done
byfloodwaterand most of the res-
idents did not have flood insur-
ance," said the Rev. Neil Helton,
president of the Ministerial
Association.
"Many of them are without a
job and some of them are in bad
health and cannot do the work
themselves. Volunteers working
through First Baptist Church, Bay
St. Louis, (the clearing house for
teer eforp i'l c~f d'
oximrately 400 S.- t ou1,
many more need volunteer work,"
he said.


"The task ahead is enormous.
Destruction encompasses a huge
area, and it will take more than a
year to clean up and make it pos-
sible for reconstruction to begin.
The Ministerial Association is
encouraging churches to work
together to field additional teams
for disaster relief," says Helton.
Several local churches have
sent teams to help in the cleanup as
well as collecting and distributing
supplies to the hurricane victims,
and more teams are forming. At
this time, the Hancock County
Commissioners wish to bring the
giveaway programs to a close in
order to promote the businesses of
local merchants who are strug-
gling to reopen. But cleanup and
basic repair work is sorely needed.
Another group, organized by
Milo Miller, is in Mississippi this
week, and Five Points Baptist
Church has one planned for
January.
"Every church has its own way
of responding to disasters. My role
in this as president of the ministe-
rial association is to help coordi-
nate individual church groups and
keep them informed. I'll try to
empower people who want to go to
do so, and I encourage individu-
als to join any team. Just give me
a date when you can go and I will
put you in touch with the right peo-
ple."
Anyone interested in joining
the effort may contact Helton at
261-9527. Such selfless contribu-
tions of time and labor for those in
de"&i@t needt are surely thl
frittdf ifts and in the true' sir-'

Active hurricane


season forecast


The United States faces
another very active Atlantic
basin hurricane season in 2006,
but with likely fewer landfalling
intense hurricanes than in 2005 -
the costliest, most destructive hur-
ricane season ever according to
a report issued by Philip
Klotzbach, William Gray and the
Colorado State University forecast
team.
The team's first extended-
range forecast for the 2006
hurricane season anticipates 17
named storms forming in the'
Atlantic basin between June 1
and Nov. 30. Nine of the 17 storms
are predicted to become hurri-
canes, and of those five are expect-
ed to develop into intense or major
hurricanes (Category 3-4-5) with
sustained winds of 111 mph or
greater.
The 2005 season witnessed 26
named storms, 14 hurricanes and

seven intense hurricanes.
The entire report is available
on the web at http://hurricane.
atmos. colostate.edu.
"Enhanced major hurricane
activity is likely to continue in the
Atlantic basin for the next 15 to
20 years, but the probability of
seeing another two consecutive
hurricane seasons with as many
landfalling hurricanes as was
witnessed in 2004 and 2005 is
very low," Gray said in a press
release.
The CSU hurricane forecast
team predicted an 81 percent
chance much higher than aver-
age'probability that at least one
major hurricane will make land-
fall on the U.S. coastline in 2006.
The long-term average probability
is 52 percent
For the U.S. East Coast, includ-
ing the Florida Peninsula, the
probability of an intense hurricane
making landfall is 64 percent
(the long-term average is 31 per-
cent).
"The probability of landfall for
any one location along the coast is
very low and reflects the fact that,
in any one season, most U.S.
coastal areas will not feel the
effects of a hurricane, no matter
how active a season," Klotzbach
said. "However, low landfall prob-
ability does not ensure that hurri-
canes will not come ashore, so
coastal residents should always be
prepared."
Florida and the Gulf Coast were
ravaged by four landfalling hurri-
canes in each of the past two years.
Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan
and Jeanne caused devastating
damage in 2004 followed by
Dennis, Katrina, Rita and Wilma in
2005.
"In 2004 and 2005, we saw a
rare combination of a high number
of major hurricanes forming and
especially favorable hurricane
steering conditions that drove
many storms from the deep trop-
ics across the Caribbean and into
Florida and the Gulf Coast," Gray
said. "It is statistically unlikely that
the coming 2006 and 2007 hurri-
cane seasons will have the number
of U.S. landfalling major hurri-
canes we have seen in the past two.
years."

Island otter odysseys: Where do they go?


WT wouldn't you know it?
The very day that my
query about otters
was published in this
newspaper (Nov. 16), I saw my
first otter sign of the season -
otter scat (feces) on the shore of
our retention pond. And ever
since then the otter observations
of other island residents have
been flowing into my inbox. Yes, I
am now happy to report, river
otters (Lontra canadensis) are
still here in our midst
In the past
month or so,
otters have
been sighted
o by our read-
ers along the
Egans Creek
Greenway, at
our downtown
marina and at
community
Pat retention
Foster-Turley ponds in
.- Islesworth,
Amelia Island
WID WAYS Plantation,
and even in
my own backyard pond at Sim-
mons Cove, although not yet by
me.
Most of these sightings are of
single otters. But my neighbor
reports that she saw three otters
in our pond on Thanksgiving Day,
and three otters were also sighted
at our marina recently. Last spring
a trio of otters was repeatedly


spotted in ponds up and down the
island, from Islesworth to Amelia
Island Plantation, earning the
nickname the "Three Stooges"
("Amelia Island's Three
Stooges,'" June 17) I'm hoping
these current sightings mean
they have returned. I'm keeping
my backyard eyes peeled for the
big ripples that announce their
presence. .
But returned from where? One
observant longtime resident of
Amelia Island Plantation reports
seeing single or multiple otters in
her backyard retention pond
throughout the cooler months.
She never sees them in the heat
of summer. This observation coin-
cides with my own lack of sum-
mer otter sightings in my neigh-
borhood.
One thought is that maybe
during long hot days otters tend
to be more nocturnal, and less
likely to be seen. Having a thick
fur coat can only be a liability
when the weather wilts even us
lightly furred humans. With no
air-conditioning to retreat to, a
nighttime activity period makes
sense.
That may be so, but if otters
are around at night their scent-
marking scat signs would still be
seen along their route, and during
the summer these signs too disap-
peared from the edge of my pond.
Or maybe otters leave the
freshwater ponds and spend their
summers mostly in more hidden


salt-marsh areas? That may be so,
but then what do they do for fresh
water? River otters, unlike their
sea otter '(Enhydra lutris) cousins
on the West Coast, need regular
sources of freshwater to drink.
Are there enough springs and
rain runoff in the marshes to sus-
tain them and to enable them to
clean their salty coats? I just don't
know.
Questions like these about
otter behavior are difficult to
answer from occasional furtive
sightings. North American river
otters are notoriously difficult to
study. How well I know this, after
devoting two decades of my
career to this endeavor. For one
thing, individual North American
otters are difficult to identify.
Other otter species, like the giant
otters in Latin America, and the
spot-necked otters of Africa, have
individually distinct markings on
their throats. Not so our otters.
Brown, brown, brown, slightly
lighter on the underside, that's
about it.
Raising orphaned otters in cap-
tivity gave me a fine-tuned eye for
the otters I knew personally, and
each was as different in appear-
ance and personality as any of a
group of cocker spaniel litter-
mates. But in the wild it is rare to
get that same perspective on indi-
viduals that are only sporadically
sighted.
Otters are also highly variable
in their behavior patterns. In

some coastal areas North
American river otters have been
found to spend months together
in same-sexed groups of females
or males, siblings usually. In more
riverine settings in the middle of
the country, otters are often more
solitary. Otters also have large
home ranges and visit some areas
of their territories infrequently.
Although someone may see an
otter at dusk at a particular spot
on the greenway, and even find
copious signs of otter scat there,
the chances of seeing an otter
there the next evening is far from
certain.
Those people lucky enough to
find an otter den might have
repeated sightings of the female
going to and from, but even that is
not enough to count on. Otters
are known to move from nest to
nest, carrying their cubs off to
safer surroundings if they feel
threatened. *
The more we find out about
our Amelia Island otters, the more
there is to know. I'm happy to
keep track of any information you
send me. Maybe together we can
piece together the puzzle of the
otter odysseys of Amelia.

Lucero, 34, pleaded guilty in
May to aggravated stalking
and shooting or throwing deadly
missiles, charges stemming
from an armed standoff between
Lucero and sheriff's deputies
on July 24, 2004, in which he
used his children as human
shields.
On May 5, after pleading guilty,
Lucero was sentenced to five
years of probation and six months
in outpatient care in Colorado. He
was ordered not to return to
Florida without permission from
the court.

and Emergency Services
Foundation has implemented
since 2003 in conjunction with the
Department of Financial Services
and the Florida Division of State
- Fire Marshal.
Alarms are distributed to at-
risk homes in targeted Florida
communities, based on fire fre-
quency trends, income and need
in an attempt to prevent the loss of
life from fires within the home by
installing a working smoke alarm
'at no charge to our citizens.
"This program is part of a coun-

Early detection of any fire is

of smoke can make the difference

arrest within minutes of exposure.
A recent study released by the
U.S. Fire Administration stated
that more than 3,000 people die
each year in fires. What's most
worrisome is that in a full two-
thirds of these fires, smoke alarms
are missing or not working.
A smoke alarm installed by
Nassau County Fire-Rescue may
have saved the life of 66-year-old
Ruby Brown when her Yulee
home caught fire earlier this year.
Brown told investigators the
smoke alarm woke her up about
4:15 a.m. and gave her the oppor-
tunity to escape the home before
the home was destroyed.
"We hope that our community
will benefit from these lifesaving
devices we are providing to at-risk
,oqmes and our long-term ogis
for every home to be equipped
with at least one smoke alarm,
which will allow extra valuable
time for families to execute their
home escape plan," said Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper. 'Trained fire per-
sonnel from Nassau County Fire-
Rescue will install and test the
smoke alarms at no charge."
The actual placement of a
smoke detector in a home is very
important. The hallway outside
each sleeping area is the most
advantageous location for proper
protection. A detector should be
mounted at the center of the ceil-
ing and at least three feet from an
air register or exterior doorway,
where drafts could cause false
alarms. If placement on the ceiling
cannot be achieved, the detector
may be mounted on an interior
wall, 4-12 inches down from the
ceiling. In a multi-story dwelling,
smoke detectors should be placed
on every level.
The telltale beep every minute
is the normal indicator of a weak

Jaguars


to face


a tough


decision
T he Jacksonville
Jaguars all but
sealed a playoff
berth with their 10-9
win over San Francisco
Sunday, as ugly as it was. The
team is now faced with the
dilemma of deciding who will
play quarterback if starter
Byron Leftwich is deemed
healthy by the postseason.
Yes, Leftwich was on a roll
before he suffered the bro-
ken bone in his ankle, but
backup David Garrard has
been solid in his absence.
Jack Del Rio, who has hinted
that Leftwich will get the nod
when healthy, might be in a
"darned if you do, darned if
you don't" situation come
January...
With all due respect to my
attorney friends, lawyers say
the dumbest things to the
media. The latest example is
Ken Oden, an attorney advis-
ing University of Texas DB
Cedric Griffin, who reported-
ly has talked to police regard-
ing two recent cases of armed
robbery and assault. Griffin is
not a suspect in the case at
this time but reports indicate
other Texas players might
have been involved in the
crimes.
Oden seems to think the
issue has been overblown,
just because Griffin and his
teammates are preparing to
take center stage in the
National Championship game
against USC Jan. 4.
"I do think the notoriety
and celebrity because of the
big game coming up may be
lending more drama to the
situation than the facts would
justify," Oden said.
You're right, Ken. After all,
robbing someone at gunpoint
is no big deal, right? Merely
child's play. Bonehead ...
Collegefootball.rivals.com
recently released a list of gifts
to be given to everyone on
bowl team rosters. Players
will receive everything from
custom luggage sets to cham-
pionship rings to video game
systems. The Peach Bowl
plans to give each University
of Miami and LSU player an
XBox and XBox game pack, a
Fossil watch, a Chick-fil-A
Peach Bowl windshirt, a com-
memorative football and
watch and, get this, a copy of
the book Wild at Heart by
John Etheridge. Hope there's
not a book report due on that
bad boy.
By the way, the
Independence Bowl will give
South Carolina players a
Fossil watch, a "large" leather
duffel bag, a commemorative
hat and football and a mini
football helmet, while the
Outback Bowl will provide
Florida players with a Sony
mini digital camcorder and a
commemorative backpack.
Maybe Gator players can
video their experience at
Busch Gardens and send 'it to
Shreveport, La., where South
Carolina players will undoubt-
edly be checking their new
watches in anticipation of the
team's departing flight

The Westlake 'Griffins defeated the host
Fernandina Beach Pirates Saturday night in overtime
to take the title in the 13th annual Johnny T Smith

score was tied at 48-48 at the end of regulation and
Westlake won 65-52 in overtime.

all we cared about was fighting as hard as we could
to win the game. I thought we understood what we
needed to do to win against a pretty talented team. And
it's the hardest I've seen us play.
"(Westlake) put tremendous pressure on the bas-

rolling

The Fernandina Beach High
School girls soccer team is on a
roll, wining five, tying and losing
one in the last seven games.
On Dec. 9, the Pirates hosted
Bishop Snyder and won a mercy
rule shortened game 8-0. Leading
the Pirates was Whitney Hudson
with her third hat trick in a row,
Laura Mueller with two goals and
Jessica Fletcher, Slayton Haney
and Dresden Roach rounding out
the scoring.
Coral Norheim, Hudson, Flet-
cher, Roach and Mueller all had
assists in the game. The Pirates
now have seven shutouts on the
season.
On Dec. 12, the Pirates hosted
district leader Paxon.
"The team came out on top of
their game," said FBHS Coach
Greg Hudson.
Midway through the first half,
Mueller scored on a pass' from
Whitney Hudson that cleared sev-
eral Paxon defenders. Mueller's
shot soundly beat the Paxon keep-
er.
"We have had trouble finishing
at times this season. Mueller's shot
was no doubt," said Coach Hudson.
The Pirates held Paxon score-
less to take a 1-0 halftime lead. In
the 16th minute of the second half,
Paxon got a shot off that deflected
off a Pirate defender and found the
net.
"Our keeper, Norheim, got a lit-
tle off balance and just missed the
save. Our defense and midfield had
an outstanding game," said Coach
Hudson.
Neither team could score again,
resulting in a 1-1 tie.
'To tie the first-place team in
our district is huge. It shows the
team they can compete with any-
one in the district," Coach Hudson
said.
On Dec. 14, the Pirates hosted
another district opponent, Forrest.
Again, the mercy rule came into
play as the Pirates beat Forest 8-0
early in the second'half. Norheim
recorded a hat trick, Mueller had
two goals, and Whitney Hudson,
Angi Nobles and Roach had a goal
apiece.
The Pirates hosted Stanton on
Dec. 15 and, playing in a driving
rain, lost 1-0. Stanton scored near
the end of the half and the Pirates
were unable to convert on several
late-game opportunities.
The Pirates are now 11-7-1 on
the season. The Pirates play at
Bishop Kenny for their last district
game of the season on Jan. 4 after
returning from their holiday break.
The Pirates will host an alumni
game on Dec. 31 at 2 p.m. at Pirate
Field. All alumni are welcome to
attend and play.

FBHS boys tie Bolles 1-1
FBHS boys varsity soccer team
earned a hard fought 1-1 draw
against Bolles Friday night.
Fernandina scored first from a nice
volley by Jose Cruz. Fernandina
played well for the rest of the first
half but did not score again and
led 1-0.
The second half was well played
with limited chances for the
Pirates. Bolles, on the other hand,
had many opportunities but was
denied by a great goalkeeping
effort by Mike Wilson. Wilson had
15 saves on the night
Bolles scored from a penalty
after a soft foul in the box. The ball
was powered in form the spot by
Bolles player Chase Decker, giv-
ing Wilson little chance for the
save.
The Pirate junior varsity boys
were tied by Bolles 2-2. Scores by
Sean Langley and William Hunt
weren't quite enough to earn the
victory.
The Pirates are on hiatus for
the holidays and will resume play
Jan. 3 at Ed White.

OUTDOORS


Captains



are honored

"I began sailing in Block Island, R.I.," Capt.
Larry Sherwood said. "I had several friends that I
sailed with and right away fell in love with sail-
boats."
Sherwood was recently awarded a plaque for
outstanding sailing charter services aboard his
sailing boat, the "Mary Rose," a 32-foot wes sail.
Sherwood was a major in the Marine Corps
until 1991, when his family retired to Amelia Island.
He also taught sailing classes in the Marine Corps
during his off-duty hours.
"After moving to Amelia Island, I began sailing
with Ted Waas until I began to sail my own boat in
1992," Sherwood said. "I found the 32-foot wes sail
was a perfect boat for sailing with plenty of deck
and cockpit room. She was also fast enough to
please the sailors that were looking for lots of wind
in her sails.
"I guess one of the real joys for me with charter
sailing was being able to meet such a wide variety
of different people and from all parts of the world."
Sherwood retired from the sailing charter busi-
ness this past summer and has
moved the "Mary Rose" from
the Fernandina Beach Harbor
Marina to the Tiger Point
Marina on Egans Creek.
"I still sail the 'Mary Rose'
at least once a week with my
wife, Jeanette, and two sons,
Larry and Brian, when he is in
-_ 'J town," Sherwood said. "All are
Terrn Lacoss excellent sailors."
The Amelia Island Charter
Boat Association recently rec-
OUTDOORS ognized Sherwood for the
many years of excellent servic-
es provided to their guests. He received a nice
plaque at the recent annual AICBA cookout and
awards ceremony.
Captain of the Year honors for the year 2004-5
went to Capt. Cris Holland, captain of the charter
boat, "Misti Lynn." Holland accumulated.points for
the following catches 56-pound amberjack, 28-
pound grouper, 30-pound red snapper, 9-foot sail-
fish, 22-pound dolphin, 49-pound wahoo and an 85-
pound black drum.
Capt. Allen Mills, skipper of the charter boat
"Wahoo," received awards for a 32-pound barracu-
da, 31-pound bonito, 180-pound shark and a 35-
pound cobia.
Capt. Terry David Lacoss received awards for a
38-pound kingfish, 196-pound tarpon, 42-pound red
bass and a 33-pound tuna.
Local charter captains can compete in the annu-
al event by weighing in their charters' catches at
the Fernandina Beach Harbor Marina, where the
largest fish are recorded on a large tournament
scoreboard. The local charter captain's competition
runs from May 1 and ends on the last day of April
each year.
This year's awards dinner was held at Kraft
Athletic Sunday. The weather was chilly, to say the
least, but the heavy rains of the day before did
diminish in time to hold the event outside.
Besides the excellent covered dishes and barbe-
cue, AICBA members and their family also partici-
pated in a fun casting tournament
Capt. Adam Loud and Raymond Forehand tied
with two points each and advanced to a cast-off for
the casting champion's trophy. A half point was

given for hitting a five-gallon bucket at a distance of
30 feet. Casting plugs that landed into the bucket
were worth a whole point.
During the cast-off, Loud was crowned the 2004-
5 casting champion.
Many thanks go to Amelia Island Plantation,
Atlantic Bait and Seafood, the Bait House, Hampton
Inn & Suites, Leaders & Sinkers, the "Amelia


Angler" and The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island for
donating raffle items for the AICBA awards dinner.
Through the cold weather and occasional rain
shower, Capt. Ben Forehand showed up at Kraft
Athletic early that morning and barbecued chicken
from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
"The secret in barbecuing chicken is to mari-
nate the chicken the day before," Forehand said. "I

also prefer the thighs over legs and breasts; they
just seem to taste better barbecued. Finally the
secret to excellent barbecued chicken is to barbe-
cue it slowly for three to four hours."
I can tell you personally that Ben's chicken
tastes better than any chicken I have ever eaten.
Steaks too!
Merry Christmas!

Blue crab management
The Florida Fish and Wildlife

approved blue crab rule amend-
ments requested by commercial
fishermen regarding the blue
crab effort management pro-
gram. The FWC also approved
creating an incidental take
endorsement for blue crab.
Last April, the FWC approved
a rule designed to control
growth and overcapitalization of
the commercial blue crab fishery
'by managing the number of fish-
ermen and traps.

FWC's Blue Crab Advisory

Board, established a blue crab
limited entry endorsement pro-
gram that limits the total number
of commercial blue crab fisher-
men and allows each qualified
fisherman to use up to an equal
number of traps.
This program includes certain
qualifying criteria (based upon
reported blue crab landings over
a specified period) for fishermen
to obtain an endorsement which
allows them to commercially har-
vest blue crabs.
The program also requires all
blue crab traps to be tagged and
allows the transfer of endorse-
ments to other persons under
specified conditions. Fees to sup-
port this program, which begins
in the 2006-2007 license year,
must be approved by the 2006
Florida Legislature.
The rules approved by the
FWC allow qualified fishermen
affected by the 1995 net limita-
tion amendment, and stone crab
and shrimp fishermen who har-


vest blue crabs as bycatch in
their fishing gear, to obtain a
non-transferable blue crab limit-
ed entry endorsement. This lets
displaced net fishermen use up
to 100 traps to harvest hard shell
blue crabs, and gives shrimpers
and stone crabbers a daily
bycatch allowance of 200 pounds
of blue crabs.
An incidental take endorse-
ment to allow harvest of a limited
amount of blue crabs from
shrimp and stone crab fishing
gear was approved by the com-
mission, and the 2006 Legisla-
ture must approve a proposed
$25 fee for this endorsement.
The new rules also allow blue
crab harvesters to obtain permis-
sion from the FWC Division of
Law Enforcement to let another
person transport, deploy or
retrieve his/her traps on a short-
term basis under certain condi-
tions for reasons of hardship.
These rules will take effect next
month.

Fish measurement
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
approved a series of rules to clar-
ify 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 meas-
ured by determining the straight
line distance from the most for-
ward 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 measured.
Fork length measurements
. are considered to be easily
understood by fishermen and do
not need further clarification.
Another new rule changes
measurement for gray trigger-
fish 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 standard 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.
These rules take effect July 1,
2006.

Look for the little miracles of the Christmas season


M any of us transplanted
Northerners struggle
to find a sense of
Christmas as we bask
in the warmer climate of our
Florida homes. We don't com-
plain, but admit sometimes we
miss a little nip in the air and a
dusting of snow on the ground. A
nip is just a little bit of cold, not
freezing, and a dusting is not
measured in feet.
We have to pretend. The clos-
est we get to a sense of snow are
the blankets of white lights that
cover our bushes and trees this
time of year. So we use our imagi-
nations.
The best part of imagined
snow is no shovels and snow
blowers. Pine trees are replaced


by palm
trees. Sleds
Share
replaced by
iL golf carts.
No more

Dickie Anderson shared a
story about
a visit from
FROM THE her New
PORCH England
based
daughter. It seemed the Northern
visitor missed the seasonal joy of
building a snowman. So what did


they do? They went to the beach
and built a snowman out of sand.
We all work hard to keep this
time of year under control, but it
is not easy. Every day is a chal-
lenge.
There is the complicated puz-
zle of getting presents in the mail
and insuring that everyone is
remembered.
To send or not send Christmas
cards? When the mail comes
there are lots of cards from peo-
ple you did not sent to or do not
even remember.
I must be getting old not
only do I look forward to
Christmas letters, I send one.
While wrapping presents one
evening, Big Guy and I briefly
considered an updated twist on a


favorite Christmas story by 0.
Henry The Gift of the Magi.
The couple in the story, the
Youngs, were in love and had no
money to buy each other gifts.
Jim Young sold his prized grand-
father's watch to buy Della, his
wife, a set of beautiful combs for
her hair. And Della? She sold her
hair to buy a platinum watch
chain for Jim's treasured watch.
Our version? Big Guy could
sell his treasured set of golf clubs
and buy me a new titanium tennis
racket. I could sell my old but still
tried and true tennis racket and
buy him a used putter. That idea
didn't go very far.
Yes, our island Christmases
may be very different from those
we remember, but have their own


unique charm. We miss our fami-
lies some gone and some far
away.
We cherish our memories of
other Christmases and start new
traditions. We find family in our
friendships and share our holiday
meals with each other.
Many take the time to share
with others and volunteer in one
of the many island programs that
make Christmas dreams come
true for our community needy.
Look for the little miracles that
happen every day. Wish someone
Happy Holiday or Merry
Christmas and wait for the
returned good wishes.
