PHOTOS BY ROBERT FIEGE/NEWS-LEADER
A whale, possibly an endangered northern right whale, is spotted Monday six blocks south of Main Beach. The northern right
whale comes south in the winter to give birth. Notify the whale hotline by calling 1-888-979-4253 with its location, direction
of travel and number of animals. The U.S. Navy sends word of sightings to large boat captains in the area.


It's notcharity

Yulee teacher's mission

to aid school in Ethiopia


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader
"These children in Ethiopia
would give anything to have your
seat," Brenda Commandeur told
Yulee High School students recent-
ly.
The mud buildings where she
taught math and English are in
"deplorable condition," she said.
The school buildings are falling
down and "in terrible disrepair."
Visiting the country to give
assistance "is a much better invest-
ment than buying a car," she said.
"It will change your life."
Commandeur's life changed
when she left the U.S. to travel to
east Africa as a Peace Corps vol-
unteer from 1965-67. "I'm kind of an
adventurer," she said. "I loved it. I
never was homesick."
After returning to America, she
became "very conscious of how
much people talked about what
they were buying." That was "never
a topic of conversation in Bonga,"
she said.
Commandeur returned to
Bonga, Ethiopia, last year and is
raising funds for the school there
and raising consciousness here.
Raised "in the segregated
South," with a strong "sense of
social justice," Commandeur
"always believed everyone is the
same," she said. She also b,. I.,.d
in the mission of the Peace Corps"
and wanted to see another part of
the world, Commandeur said.
A Jacksonville native, she
retired from Stanton College
Preparatory School. She lives in
Fernandina Beach where her


church, friends, family and the
community have contributed to the
project to refurbish the school in
Bonga.
"It's not charity. It's justice," she
told the students as a speaker for
the recent "Healing Our World"
information forum at YHS.
"Every human being has a right
to a decent life. That's justice," she
said.
"To be born in a society that
educates" its citizens is "our good
fortune. Other countries don't.
That's just not fair."
While living in Bonga in the
'60s, she helped "haul water from
the river," followed by boiling it.
The town had electricity for two

Museum


aids Peck


listing
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
The Amelia Island Museum of
History will serve as "host institu-
tion" in applying for a multiple-list-
ing survey grant that may help get
the Peck Center an individual list-
ing on the National Register for
Historic Preservation.
According to museum director
Carmen Godwin, the Rosenwald
School Initiative grant, if awarded,
will fund a survey of all 120
Rosenwald Schools in Florida.
Construction of the Peck
Center was partially paid for by
the Rosenwald Foundation, which
helped build nearly 5,000 schools,
teachers' homes and shops
throughout the South for African-
American children in the early part
of the 20th century.
The National Trust for Historic
Preservation formed the
Rosenwald Schools Initiative as a
unified effort to help preserve the
Rosenwald Schools.
The reason for the survey,
Godwin said, is because "we don't
have a real good idea of what
Rosenwald schools are out there ...
or what condition they're in."
The museum met the Dec. 15,
2007, deadline to apply for the
multiple-property grant, although
according to Godwin, "state
funding does not look good this
year." She also said the museum's
initiative would not conflict
with the multiple-property grant
that the city was pursuing, and
in fact having both initiatives
would make a "stronger applica-
tion" for the Peck Center national
listing.
According to a Bland &
Associates survey of historic
properties in Fernandina Beach,
Peck High School, originally
named Nassau Colored School
Number 1, was built in 1928
through the efforts of William H.
Peck, an educational leader of
African-Americans on Amelia
Island.
Funding came from the
Rosenwald Foundation and other
sources. Peck High School, the
only Rosenwald School in Nassau
County, is also among the largest
of the schools built in Florida.
Godwin noted that a state his-
torical review panel will review all
grant applications in Tallahassee
this spring. She also said she was
excited to be involved in the
statewide project because it might
also result in national recognition
for the museum.

Change a child,



change a country


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader

They had not seen or spoken to
each other in 40 years.
Saba Gizaw and Brenda
Commandeur originally became
acquainted in a Bonga, Ethiopia,
classroom. "I was not even 10 years
old" then, Gizaw said.
"I only taught a few girls,"
Commandeur recalled about hav-
ing Gizaw as her student.
After a chance encounter
renewed their friendship, teacher
and student have not only become
"like family," they have initiated a
project to rehabilitate the school
where they spent two years learn-
ing from each other.
The two reunited after
Commandeur's goddaughter, while
shopping at a Tampa department
store, struck up a conversation with
a stranger who had an interesting
accent.
Upon learning that the stranger
was a native of Bonga, the god-
daughter mentioned that
Commandeur had served as a vol-
unteer in that town.
The stranger, hearing
Commandeur's name, identified
herself as Elizabeth Gizaw, the sis-
ter of Saba Gizaw, a girl who had
been Commandeur's student.
As a result of that unlikely meet-
ing between strangers, two friends
embraced each other again in
March 2004. "I was just flabber-
gasted," Commandeur said of their
reunion at her home.
They communicate all the time.
"Now, we've become very close,"
Commandeur said. "She's like fam-
ily to me."
Through Gizaw, Commandeur
learned about the desperate need
for repairs to Atse Beide Mariam,
the school in Bonga where she
once taught English and math. Now
renamed, the school serves grades
one through eight.
Commandeur "was so sad about
the school," Gizaw said. "She told
me she would be glad to go back
and help," Gizaw said.
"She saw the school was in bad
shape," with an overflow of stu-
dents in one room, she said.
"I would not have ever gone
back had I not seen her again,"
Commandeur said about her
January 2007 return to Bonga.
After Commandeur came back
to the U.S. following her return to
the southwestern Ethiopian town,
"She said, 'We need to do some-
thing,'" Gizaw recalled.
"The whole project is growing
... I'll tell someone and they'll tell
someone else," Commandeur said.
"We have refurbished one build-
ing," she said, with help from her
church, St. Peter's Episcopal, her

family and other "unexpected
places."
"The best and brightest part of
this," Commandeur said, has been
the Yulee High School students
who want to help Bonga students.
"I can't tell you how excited I was"
to learn about the students who
organized a bake sale and raised
$450 for the project.
"Some of them want to go back
to Ethiopia with me," she said.
Gizaw, who earned a master's
degree and lives in Tallahassee,
serves as a liaison between the
fundraising committee in
Fernandina and the school admin-
istration in Bonga.
Ironically, she was born in living
quarters on the campus and her
father served as principal at the
school.
She traveled there this month,
for the first time in 17 years, to tour
the rehabilitated building, investi-
gate structural conditions, build-
ing specifications and to assess
costs for future repairs.
"This town is at the end of the
road," Commandeur said about
Bonga. "You couldn't get out of it
when it was raining."
Despite its remote nature and
impoverished conditions, the
school has produced several
advanced academics and profes-
sionals, including a NASA scien-
tist, Ketaw Ejegu. Also, Desta
Damtew, Gizaw's uncle, an account-
ing professor at Norfolk State
University, graduated from the
school.
"I had no idea anyone would
make it out of Bonga to pursue
higher education," Commandeur
said.
A child in the school could
"change the country," she said.
"You might be educating a Nelson
Mandela."

Saba Gizaw and Brenda Commandeur study each other's
faces in March 2004 when they reunited after 40 years.
Commandeur served as a Peace Corps volunteer 1965-67 in
Bonga, Ethiopia, where she taught English and math to
Gizaw.


AFRICA Continued from 1A
hours at night. There was no tel-
evision.
Upon her return to the town,
located near Kenya's northern
border, she found that "poverty
is much worse" than 40 years ago.
The destitute, including orphaned
children, have very few resources,
she said.
"All the leading economists say
this is something within our
reach," to eliminate "the kind of
poverty that kills people,"
Commandeur said.
"The most urgent need is class-
room space." Currently, there is
not adequate space for the 1,400
children who attend.
In Ethiopia education is not
mandatory, she said, explaining
that a student might begin first
grade at age 16 with no stigma.
The literacy rate in Bonga is 35
percent, she said. About 57 per-
cent of all people there attend ele-
mentary school, with about 43
percent who never attend.
And in the past, many families
did not send their children to
school, she said. "Now everyone
wants their child to go to school"
because "enough people have got-
ten educated."
Also, "They want their girls in
school." Primarily boys attended

are "big signs that say, 'Send your
girls to school,'" she said.
In a place where "everything
spreads by word of mouth," the
people have realized "if they edu-
cate themselves, they can bring
themselves out of poverty,"
Commandeur said.
The students in Bonga are
"very bright and very motivated."
The people there "will do with-
out a lot of things" to have an edu-
cation, Commandeur said.
"You can never uplift society,
you can never have a democracy,

Rosenwald supported

African-American schools


According to a Rosenwald
Schools website, Julius Rosenwald,
president of Sears Roebuck, was a
white Notherner who teamed with
Booker T Washington, founder of
the Tuskegee Institute, in 1912 to
help give more educational oppor-
tunities to young African-Americans
in the rural South.
Together, the two men came up
with the idea of a "matching grant."
The Rosenwald fund would con-
tribute about one-fifth of the money
to build a school if the local African-
American community also con-
tributed some of construction
costs, and if the local school board
agreed to operate the school.
The largest source of funding
was taxes. The school board also
had to commit to maintaining the
school as part of the public school
system. Local African-American
leaders such as teachers, princi-
pals, ministers and business owners
often initiated building campaigns.
There were also donations of land,
labor and building materials.

Construction of the schools
began in 1913 in Alabama and last-
ed until 1932, when Rosenwald
funds of more than $4.3 million had
been spent. More than $4.7 million
was also raised by African-
American communities. Nearly
5,000 schools of different designs
and sizes were built throughout the
rural South, as well as 217 teachers'
homes and 163 shop buildings.
By 1928, one in five rural schools
for African-Americans was a Rosen-
wald school; 120 were in Florida,
including Peck High School.
Rosenwald also created a fund to
support emerging African-
American artists, writers and schol-
ars between 1928 and 1948. Some
of those artists include Charles
Alston, Richmond Barthe,
Elizabeth Catlett, Jacob Lawrence,
Charles White and Hale Woodruff.

County considers new tree law


It is Nassau County's trade-
mark. Locals cherish it. Visitors
covet it.
It is the natural beauty of our
area - from the rivers to the
marshes to the ocean. The cen-
terpiece of the beauty is not just
our waterways, but also our
bountiful trees. Few coastal
areas can boast such an array of
towering trees.
However, the natural beauty
is under assault from reckless
development. Look no farther
than the hodgepodge of con-
struction along the A1A corridor
in Yulee, or the clear-cutting of
lots around the county.
In a preventative and protec-
tive measure, Nassau County
officials are finally crafting uni-
form guidelines for such devel-
opment. And at the root of the
measure is the protection of the
most precious resource - our
trees.
County officials will take up
the new development codes at
their Monday and Jan. 28 meet-
ings. They will seek public input
at both meetings (at 7 p.m. on
both dates at the county building
at 96135 Nassau Place in Yulee)


before voting
on the meas-
ures as they
now stand, or
S ' as revised.
The new
measures are
vast, and call
for the pro-
Stection of
Steve native tree
Nicklas canopies; the
requirement
" * of buffers
STEVE'S along wet-
MARKET lands; and
the enact-
PLACE ment of land-
scaping stan-
dards for new construction. The
provisions would only impact the
unincorporated areas of the
county. Local cities have their
own codes.
Some locals contend that the
county had agreed on uniform
codes for development along
A1A at the time the Lofton
Square retail center was con-
structed. A tasteful buffer of
trees fronts the center on A1A,
and a sidewalk also borders the
roadway.


FCCJ class on investing
Florida Community College's Nassau Center will again
offer the "Investing in Today's Financial Markets" class beginning
Feb. 5.
The continuing-education class covers all aspects of the finan-
cial markets, including stocks and bonds and popular investment
vehicles such as mutual funds. The class has been offered period-
ically for the last seven years at the Yulee campus. Local financial
advisor Steve Nicklas teaches the class.
The schedule for the four-week class is Feb. 5, investing in
stocks; Feb. 12, investing in bonds; Feb. 19, investing in IRAs,
401 (k)s and other retirement vehicles; Feb. 26, implementing an
investment plan.
Classes will be from 6:30-8 p.m. The cost is $36, which
includes materials (students must pre-register at the college). The
college can be reached at 548-4432.


Things apparently changed
after that. The big-box retailers
reportedly had little interest in
following such specific direc-
tives.
The result is what we now
have - a clear-cutting of trees
with orchards of skimpy, hand-
me-down replacements, border-
ing gargantuan parking lots.
For the most part, local devel-
opers are responsible and inter-

ested in preserving our natural
assets. They live here and have
reputations to uphold. Those
from out of town hardly have
such vested interests.
It is imperative that the public
voices its opinion. Local officials
took notice when 300 angry citi-
zens turned out to oppose clos-
ing the county beaches and
parks after sunset. Officials lis-
tened when a vociferous group


opposed a new apartment com-
plex in Yulee.
This is not about hugging
trees. This is about requiring
responsible development - and
being able to enforce it. You
can be assured that those associ-
ated with the development pro-
fession will attend, as is their
right.
The final codes should be fair
and equitable, but should con-
tain enough teeth to put a bite in
shoddy development. The new
commercial centers and develop-
ments on the drawing board are
backed by big money. They have
big-time attorneys who handle
such issues all day, every day.
But the public's might cannot be
underestimated.
You might ask how the coun-
ty handled new construction in
the past, if such specific and
accountable measures were not
in place. Look out your window
when driving down A1A next
time. The results are obvious.

'Go slower' approach



to Medicaid reform


ANN SWERLICK
For theNews-Leader


The Office of the Inspector
General within the Florida Agency
for Health Care Administration
recently published a Medicaid
reform review that identifies sig-
nificant problems for Medicaid
beneficiaries participating in this
pilot program.
Duval, Clay, Nassau and Baker
counties are "ground zero" for
this experiment, which tests a new
model for Medicaid - the largest
health assistance program for low-
income individuals and their fam-
ilies. Most participants in Florida
Medicaid are children and anoth-
er significant portion is adults with
complex medical conditions.
The pilot project requires most
Medicaid beneficiaries access
care through HMOs or Provider
Service Networks, which restrict
beneficiaries to physicians in their
plan networks. The plans have
unprecedented flexibility to limit
health care benefits, including an
annual dollar cap on services.
Proponents of Florida
Medicaid reform assert that it will
slow growth in the Medicaid
budget and give Medicaid con-
sumers more choice, as well as
improve quality and access to


Duval, Clay, Nassau
and Baker counties are
"ground zero"for this
experiment.



care. Proponents of reform want
statewide expansion of the pilot by
June 30, 2011.
However, the OIG report
underscores the importance of a
"go slower" approach. It recom-
mends delaying statewide expan-
sion until certain problems are
addressed and improvements
made. Problems identified include
the following:
* Agency staffing levels are
insufficient to monitor imple-
mentation;
* Performance, quality and
cost data is not available to eval-
uate the cost-effectiveness of
reform;
* Provider network reports
(which show which physicians
participate in a plan) are inaccu-
rate. This seriously compromis-
es choice counselors' capacity to


give essential information to ben-
eficiaries trying to make the best
choice of plans;.
* Similarly, plan formularies
are often not available online or
through the plans' customer serv-
ice. Therefore, beneficiaries can-
not identify plans which will cover
their current medications;
* Persons with complex med-
ical conditions face major chal-
lenges in trying to access care
under Medicaid reform.
Jacksonville Area Legal Aid,
Three Rivers Legal Services and
Florida Legal Services are col-
laborating on a Medicaid Reform
advocacy project. Advocates pro-
vide assistance to individual ben-
eficiaries, identify systemic prob-
lems and make recommendations
to policy-makers on needed
improvements in the program. To
request assistance from this proj-
ect and/or report a complaint
about Medicaid reform, please

Get Organized Month:


Make it wot


MARY PANKIEWICZ
For theNews-Leader
Are you repeating the same
resolutions in 2008 that you had
in 2007 - "I am going to get
organized"? The National
Association of Professional
Organizers is sponsoring its
fourth annual Get Organized
Month is this month. Below are
some motivating tips and sugges-
tions to make this the year you
really do "Get Organized."
"Clutter-free & Organized"
offers five tips to get your proj-
ects started:
* Break the project up into
small, manageable sections; put
each section on your calendar.
* Celebrate after completing
each section. It will energize you
to move on. (See my website
www.clutter-free.biz for a WOW
certificate you can print.)
* Power-sort your mail. Stand
over your mail stack. Ask your-
self the "Clutter-free & Organiz-
ed" question: "Did I ask for it?" If
not, shred, recycle or trash.
* Stand when sorting stacks
of paper. You will be much more
decisive!
* If it takes less than five min-
utes - do it now! If you don't want
to do it now, will you want to do it
later? Stop procrastinating and do
it now!
"Clutter-free & Organized"
offers these Golden Rules for


"kfor

Success; apply-
ing these can
simplify the
organizing
process.
* Consisten-
cy: For example,
always put the
bills in the same
place to save
time and aggra-


vation.
* Like items together: Look at
what you have in your hand and
think about what else you have
that is similar. Store them togeth-
er. This gives you a system to
know where to put things, plus
makes them easier to find.
* Prime items in prime space.
If you use it each day, keep it
close to you. Once a year - file it
or pack it away.
* What will make me need
this? This question makes it clear
what you need to keep and what
can be purged. It is easier to let
go of items if you donate them.
* Simple is smart: There is no
right or wrong way to organize.
Good organization is if you like it
and it works!
Need more help?
So, you've read the above tips,
and you're still overwhelmed. Get
help! Try to recruit a family
member or friend who can help
you move through your stacks
while still allowing you to be the
decision maker. Another option is


0you

a professional organizer. But now
you're wondering...
"Is it going to be like on TV?"
Probably not. Some of us are
certified to work with clients on
extreme overload, but typically
our client is a person who has
had many life layers and just
needs a boost to get back on
track. This can be done in per-
son, in classes or with coaching
by telephone. And unlike televi-
sion organizing programs, no one
should:
* Make you cry
* Embarrass you
* Tell you what you can and
can't keep.
Use January, National Get
Organized Month, to jump start
your "Get Organized " journey.
Remember, every step forward
moves you toward your "Clutter-
free & Organized" goal. Your
reward will be increased accom-
plishments, more free time and
less stress.

COMMUNITY THANKS


Joy to the Children
On behalf of the board of directors of Joy to the
Children, I would like to express a heartfelt "thank
you" to the many volunteers who helped make this
year's Christmas day celebration another wonderful
success!
I am privileged to work with a dedicated volun-
teer board of directors that has spent the past 12
months preparing for this one day. So many volun-
teers helped to shop for toys, d.l.ilh.r. bedding,
books, school supplies and hygiene products, while
other volunteers sorted, wrapped, transported,
served, cleaned and gave of their time and talents on
and before Christmas Day.
Many local Nassau County restaurants and
resorts donated and prepared the turkeys and a
complete Christmas dinner for over 300 people in
attendance. Local citizens, book clubs, ACT, con-
gregations, businesses and schools generously gave
their support with monetary gifts, unwrapped toys,
books and school supplies and much needed meet-
ing and storage space.
A big "thank you" to the News-Leader, to the local
Pirates Club who invaded, local veterans who pur-
chased flags to hand out to the children, local singers
who provided music and Christmas carols, Executive
Transportation and other volunteers who drove
those families without transportation, the many
"Angels" who helped on Christmas Day and, of
course, Santa and Mrs. Claus, who delighted the chil-
dren by driving in on a Harley, then gave out pres-
ents and enthusiastically sat for pictures with the chil-
dren.
To the entire community who graciously gave
donations to support this local charity, I extend our
deepest thanks. We could not have done it without
you.
It was a day for the children, but it is a day for all
of us to share the spirit of the holiday and to expe-
rience the joy of giving. As Winston Churchill once
said, "We make a living by what we get, but we
make a life by what we give."
Sandy Balzer, President
Joy to the Children, Inc.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


New Years resolution
Last year was indeed the year of eating danger-
ously.
Consumer Reports got things rolling by reporting
that 83 percent of all raw chickens harbor campy-
lobacter or salmonella, leading causes of food-borne
disease. Spring and summer brought 20 recalls of 30
million pounds of ground beef contaminated with
lethal E. coli.
All through the year, two dozen scientific reports,
including a mammoth one by the World Cancer
Research Fund, linked meat and dairy consumption
with elevated risk of colon, stomach, pancreatic,
prostate, breast, uterine and ovarian cancers.
A dozen more reports linked meat and dairy with
obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure. A survey of
30,000 children by the National Center for Health
Statistics indicated an alarming rise in high blood
pressure, a precursor to heart attack and stroke.
Leonardo DiCaprio's The 11th Hour reminded us
that, according to the U.N., animal agriculture accounts
for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions - more
than automobiles.
The national uproar over Michael Vick's brutal
dogfighting operation made us wonder why we toler-
ate the brutal treatment and slaughter of billions of
cows, pigs and other innocent, sentient animals for our
dinner table.
The dawn of the new year is a great time to explore
the rich variety of veggie burgers, dogs, deli slices,
heat-and-eat dinners and soy-based milk, cheese and
ice cream in our local supermarket, as well as the tra-
ditional vegetables, nuts, grains and fruits. It's the
one New Year's resolution that's easy and fun to keep.

Qualifications, not politics
I object to a portion of your editorial "Time to
change planning board," Jan. 4. Yes, it is past time to
revamp the board with new people, new ideas, to
replace the failed ideas of the past, but your charac-
terization of the effort as politically motivated is very
wrong.
I supported Angle Hall not because she is a
Democrat, but because she is the only qualified can-
didate from District 4 who is not connected with devel-
oper or real estate interests. Nassau County is in the
difficulty it is in (roads, recreation, drainage, finances)
because the county government has been dominated
by the very interests it should be controlling. A new
board member is needed from District 4. None of the
incumbents should be returned to office. Which leaves
only Angle Hall among qualified candidates at this
moment.
It was unfortunate that at a recent county com-
mission meeting at which a number of residents spoke
on the need to change the Planning and Zoning Board,
that one of the speakers was Joan Cipriano, who sup-
ported her longtime friend Angie Hall. Joan is a former
president of the Democratic Club here, so it gave the
impression that there was an effort by the Democratic
Party to get Hall on the board. That was an unfortunate
coincidence. There is no organized Democratic effort
to change the board.
I am an Independent who supports the best can-
didate no matter what party. I am also supporting sev-
eral Republicans for the board. It's the qualifications
that count, not the politics!
Robert M. Weintraub
East Nassau Homeowners' Council

Not political
When presidential candidate Barack Obama won
the Democratic caucuses in Iowa, it was a special
moment in our history because Obama obtained his
victory with support from Democrats, Republicans
and Independents. This nonpartisanship has struck a
chord with many Americans who are tired of the polit-
ical partisanship that has paralyzed our national gov-
ernment.
We need to strike the same chord here in Nassau
County, but that isn't happening yet. When individual
citizens try to have a say in local government, they are
immediately branded by their political affiliation. After


A voice for the voiceless


HEATHER. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
"I've always loved animals
and wanted to do more
than wish they had a bet-
ter quality of life," says fre-
quent Voice of the People
contributor Robyn Potter.


HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader

Animal rights, global warming,
avian flu, diet and cancer; these
are just a sampling of the topics
Robyn Potter has covered in let-
ters published in Voice of the
People.
Why does she write letters to
the editor?
"Because you can reach more
people this way and it's easy ... a
great opportunity to share my
opinion, educate the public on ani-
mal issues, applaud someone for
doing the right thing or criticize
inhumane policies," Potter said.
"Letters are a powerful tool
that can encourage others to learn
more and to get active, whether
they have five minutes, 15 min-
utes or want to make a commit-
ment."
Potter's favorite topic of choice
is animal issues.
"I believe animals matter and


several people spoke at a recent county commission
meeting, your Jan. 4 editorial ("Time to change plan-
ning board") assumed they were all Democrats and it
was an organized effort to get across a Democratic
viewpoint.
I was one of those who spoke, and I am a Democrat,
but I did not know the affiliation of all those who
spoke, nor should that matter. I was not speaking as
a Democrat but as an 11-year resident who has been
upset by the non-stop destruction of our woods to
build empty shopping centers. All these projects were
approved by a Planning and Zoning Board that did not
ask developers for anything in return to preserve our
natural beauty.
Since the county commissioners were going to
appoint new members to the Planning and Zoning
board at the Dec. 16 meeting, I thought this was a per-
fect opportunity to express an opinion that many peo-
ple agree with.
I'm disappointed because the News-Leader's edito-
rial does not promote the united future that our com-
munity needs. Instead, you labeled it a political event,
which it wasn't. I know many Republicans who are just
as worried about overdevelopment as I am, and I don't
think you do anyone justice by making this political.
All homeowners in Nassau County care about our
future. I hope our commissioners select candidates
regardless of party affiliation when they decide on
their new appointments.

Micromanagement
Re: "Commissioners chastise Czymbor again,"
Jan. 4.
If the content of this article is true it appears to me
that this situation is a perfect example of micro-
managing by the city commission. Compare our city
to a multimillion-dollar public corporation - most
of the corporations have a board of directors (our city
commission) elected by the shareholders (residents),
the board of directors has a chairman of the board
(our mayor) and most of the companies have a chief
executive officer (city manager) that is hired by the
board.
The board of directors sets the policies and direc-
tion of the company, approves the budgetary income
and expenses for the operating year and meets on a
regular basis to handle necessary business of the
company. The CEO runs the company on a day-to-
day basis and is given certain latitude to make deci-
sions and approve payments for goods and/or services
that are within the budget or the policies set by the


have their own value separate
from how useful they are to us.
Every creature has a right to live
free from pain, suffering and
exploitation."
Apparently Potter's efforts to
educate the community have had
an impact.
"As a result of my letters to the
editor, many people have
expressed interest in the issues I
write about and have tried vege-
tarian meal options," Potter
reports.
Born in New Jersey, Potter
grew up there and went to college
at Old Dominion University in
Norfolk, Va. Her parents moved to
Amelia Island in 1987 and Potter
followed in 1991 after graduation.

Beach home with husband, Doug,

and furry critters including two

board.
We don't know what directions, if any, the city com-
mission has given the city manager for the expendi-
tures of the impact fees, nor do we know the timing for
the expenditures before the fees had to be returned to
the residents who had paid them to the city. I can tell
you this - a local landscaper priced 100-gallon live
oak trees to me at $500 each, and if that's the price then
the 20 trees purchased by the city for $175 each appear
to be a bargain.
The city should be about beautification - we're still
waiting for a park of the waterfront. We'd like to have
some beautification on Eighth Street with a park on the
corner of Lime at the entrance to the city. If these
trees can be used for those projects then I, as a resi-
dent (stockholder) of the city, applaud the actions of
the city manager.
If you keep criticizing and reprimanding the city
manager, then one of two things will happen, and I
think you know what they are. If, on the other hand,
you set the policies and give the city manager some
direction, support and, yes, even some latitude and
appreciation, then he may be able to move the city for-
ward in the manner that residents (stockholders) are
looking for.
In my opinion, the city manager didn't deserve
criticism for his actions, what he needs now is an apol-
ogy from the city commission and a pat on the back.

UnAmerican
In response to your editorial Jan. 4 (CTime to change
planning board"), I disagree. When anyone denies
another group the right to voice their opinion and par-
ticipate in local decisions, it is unAmerican.
You referred to Angle Hall as a Democrat who has
no right to serve on a county planning commission. Yet
you agree that she is qualified for a position with her
experience in highway construction projects. She chal-
lenged the Republican majority for a seat on the coun-
ty commission and lost. That says volumes about her
character. So, according to you, a Democrat has no
rights to public service.
Your thinking is terribly flawed. There is no diver-
sity on any of the commissions. Very little is accom-
plished in this county with that type of thinking. Two
of the commissioners no longer live in the district
they represent, so it's all right if some people do not
follow the rules. I think diversity is what makes this
country great.

VIEWPOINT/MICHAEL REAGAN/CAGLE CARTOONS



Why McCain surges, Huckabee to stumble


Although Mike Huckabee
once suddenly leaped
into the lead in the
Republican primary con-
tests, he began to drop back just
as suddenly as the New
Hampshire contest approached.
On the other hand, John
McCain - once considered all-
but-finished - has reportedly
surged ahead in New Hampshire
and is showing signs that he
could go all the way to the nomi-
nation.
Why these developments
have surprised a lot of the so-
called experts is puzzling.
There are solid reasons for the
sudden turnabout vis-a-vis
Huckabee versus McCain, and
close observers should have seen
them coming.
Everybody agrees that
Huckabee's strength comes from
the evangelical Christians. This
Baptist minister loudly proclaims
his Christian faith at every whis-
tle stop, and the evangelicals eat
it up. It is the reason why he
came to the forefront in Iowa and
it will be the reason for his down-
fall in New Hampshire and the
rest of the primaries.
What few seem to realize is
that his entire campaign rests on
his strength among the evangeli-
cal Republican voters in Iowa,


where they are a majority.
Without this advantage else-
where, he has nothing left in his


quiver. He is a single-issue man,
and once his faith - the only
arrow he has - is no longer


ADAM ZYGLIS/THE BUFFALO NEWS

sought, he will have nothing else
to offer but his quips, his ready
wit and his Clinton-like charm.


Huckabee has become the
Tom Tancredo of the evan-
gelical Christian vote in Iowa.
Tancredo was a one-issue candi-
date. If you asked him about any-
thing he brought it back to immi-
gration. You cannot win the
presidency being a one-issue can-
didate.
By going after the evangelical
vote in Iowa, he has made himself
a one-issue candidate. Voters no
longer think of him as the former
governor of Arkansas, but rather
as the Baptist minister running
for president.
Moreover, he has revealed a
shocking ignorance about
foreign policy and national-
security issues, showing himself
totally unprepared to grapple with
matters such as the assassination
of Benazir Bhutto, the kind of
event a president must be pre-
pared to confront at a moment's
notice.
When voters think about God
they think about Mike Huckabee;
when they think about the econo-
my or foreign policy they think
about other candidates.
John McCain is surging
because when voters sit back and
look at the field of candidates, out
of all of them he's the only one in
the Republican upper tier who is
consistent. He is consistent in a


field of GOP candidates who
appear to be inconsistent from
one year to the next - and from
one decade to the next - on
issues important to this cam-
paign.
He's his own man and he's the
only adult in the field who has
shown consistency. You always
know where he stands, You may
not agree with his positions on
immigration or campaign financ-
ing, but he leaves no doubt about
his positions on those issues.
John McCain is a man of
great courage, in-your-face hon-
esty and gravitas. He stands out
among the leading candidates
who seem to be one way today
and another way tomorrow. John
McCain has been the same yes-
terday, is the same today and you
know he will be the same tomor-
row.
That's what the voters are
looking for and this is why we are
seeing this movement to John
McCain in New Hampshire and
other states.

an epidemic of self-doubt
and feelings of low self-
esteem. Why do you
think this is true?
DR. DOBSON: It
has resulted, in part, from an unjust
system of evaluating human worth now
prevalent in our society. Not everyone
is seen as worthy; not everyone is
accepted. Instead,we reserve our praise
and admiration for those who have
been blessed from birth with the char-
acteristics we value most highly. It is a
vicious system, and we, as parents, must
counterbalance its impact.
At the top of the list of the most
highly respected and valued attributes
in our culture is physical attractive-
ness.Those who happen to have it are
often honored and even feared; those
who do not may be disrespected and
rejected through no fault of their own.
This measure of human worth is evi-
dent from the earliest moments of life,
when an attractive infant is considered
more valuable than a homely one. For
this reason, it is not uncommon for a
mother to be depressed shortly after
the birth of her first baby. She had
hoped to give birth to a beautiful 6-
week-old Gerber baby, having four front
teeth and rosy, pink cheeks. Instead,
they hand her a red, toothless, bald,
prune-faced, screaming little individ-

ual who isn't exactly what Mom expect-
ed.
As the child grows, his or her
value as a person will be assessed not
only by parents, but also by those out-
side the home. Beauty contests offer-
ing scholarships and prizes for gor-
geous babies are now common, as if
the attractive child didn't already have
enough advantages in life.What a dis-
torted system for evaluating human
worth! As author George Orwell has
written, "All (people) are equal, but
some (people) are more equal than
others."The real tragedy today is how
often this statement is proven true in
the lives of our children.
QUESTION: My little boy always
wants to know just how far I will let him go.
Once he has tested me and found I'm seri-
ous about what I say, he'll usually cooperate
at that point.What is going on in his mind?
DR. DOBSON:Your child, like most
other kids, has a great need to know where
behavioral boundaries are and who has the
courage to enforce them. Let me illustrate
how that works.


Years ago, during the early days of the
progressive education movement,an enthu-
siastic theorist decided to take down the
chain-linkfence that surrounded the nursery
schoolyard. He thought the children would
feel more freedom of movement without
that visible barrier surrounding them.When
the fence was removed, however, the boys
and girls huddled near the center of the play-
yard. Not only did they not wander away; they
didn't even venture to the edge of the
grounds. Clearly, there is a security for all of
us in defined boundaries.That's why a child
will push a parent to the point of exaspera-
tion at times. She's testing the resolve of the
mother or father and exploring the limits of
her world.
Do you want further evidence of this
motivation? Consider the relationships with-
in a family where the dad is a firm but lov-
ing disciplinarian, the mother is indecisive
and weak, and the child is a strong-willed
spitfire. Notice how the mother is pushed,
challenged, sassed, disobeyed and insulted,but
the father can bring order with a word or
two.What is going on here? Simply that the
child understands and accepts Dad's strength.
The limits are clear.There is no reason to test
him again. But Mom has established no rules,
and she is fair game for a fight every day if
necessary.
The very fact that your child accepts
the boundaries you have set tells you that he
respects you. That youngster will still test
the outer limits occasionally to see if the
"fence" is still there.

over the pond and into the shore-
side trees and bushes to roost for
the night.
I've never seen so many little
blue herons in one place before -
there must be 30 or more that
share these roosts. And the white
ibis are even more plentiful,
maybe 200 or more of them,
brown immature ones and all
white adults flocked next in
droves, filling any vacant spots in
and among the great egrets and
snowy egrets and anhingas and
cormorants.
These very same birds no
doubt are some of the individuals
we see all over Amelia Island by
day, feeding alone or in small
groups, in our various retention
ponds. Although these water
birds have their own individual
daytime feeding territories, at
night this roost is where their
social life takes off. In the
jostling for space at just a few
trees and bankside shrubs the
birds clack at each other and
move around a bit until they find
a suitable branch-mate to spend
the night with. These birds must
all know each other, and know
their neighbors and generations
of these birds have roosted in
these same trees for years.
As I watched, one adult white
ibis arrived with a flock of about
20, but broke off from the group
at the trees to settle in next to a
lone immature white ibis in
brown plumage. Both birds clat-
tered their greeting, nuzzled bills
and then settled down beside one
another. Was that a parent and its
offspring? Seems likely to me.
One can only imagine the social
information these birds
exchange about their day alone
when at last they group up for
the night.
Wood storks are also begin-
ning to use this roost. This feder-
al and state endangered species
is making a comeback in our
area. All around Marsh Lakes
people spot groups of these large
birds in their backyards and
docks on the lake. Maybe some
of the little blue herons and
snowy egrets and white ibis
already nest in the trees at the
front of Marsh Lakes, but this
has not yet been documented. It
is only a matter of time, here's
hoping, that these birds, and
even wood storks, also start nest-
ing in these trees.
But it may be too late, already.
What these birds don't yet know,
but will soon, is that the parcel of
land they call home is scheduled
for demolition. A strip mall, with
a liquor store, restaurant and
other businesses, is slated for
this parcel of land. If you want to
see this roost - which rivals the
bird roost at the St. Augustine
Alligator Farm, but is a lot closer
to us - you'd better get on out to
Marsh Lakes soon.
Better yet, look at the birds at
sunset, then come on out to the
county commission meeting at 6
p.m. on Monday at the county
offices on A1A just a bit further
down the road and voice your
comments.
Maybe if this habitat is turned
into a strip mall, the collective
group of birds will find another
suitable roost nearby where we
can still see them. But maybe
not. It sure would be a crying
shame to lose yet another won-
der of our natural Nassau County
world.

POLICE REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office, the
city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a crime,
not guilt.
Anyone with information about
criminal activity can contact the
Fernandina Beach Police Depart-
ment at 277-7342 or the Nassau
County Sheriffs Office anonymously
by calling 225-0147 in Yulee and

Train derails
No one was injured Friday
when a train derailed in downtown
Fernandina Beach at Ash Street.
According to police, the engine
of the train went off the tracks
about 6 p.m. An employee of the
First Coast Railroad Yard told
police the tracks were "lined for
rail traffic" at 3 p.m. in preparation
for the train. A few hours later, he
saw two white males throwing a
football on the railroad right-of-
way, and at 6:03 p.m. the train


jumped the tracks at a switch close
to where the men were seen.
After an investigation, police
learned one of the switches had
been flipped, changing the align-
ment of the tracks. The men were
reportedly throwing the ball "with-
in approximately 75 yards" of the
switch.
No arrests were made and the
case has been closed. No cargo
was damaged as a result of the inci-
dent.
Dog shot
A German shepherd dog suf-
fered a minor injury Thursday after
it was shot by a Nassau County
deputy.
According to a report by
Deputy P Crews, he and another
deputy were at a Lem Turner Road
residence to conduct an investiga-
tion when the dog ran out of the
home barking and bit Crews.
Crews said he hit the dog with
his flashlight, but "the dog was
attempting to bite (him) again." So
Crews reportedly fired one round
of ammunition at the dog from his
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
firearm; the dog then ran away.

ROBERT FIEGE/NEWS-LEADER
A train engine derailed Friday night in downtown Fernandina
Beach, closing Ash and Centre streets for hours.


ment of the bite and the dog was
picked up by Nassau County
Animal Control.
Churches vandalized
Three Fernandina Beach
churches were vandalized some
time between Christmas Day and
Dec. 26, according to a report from
the Fernandina Beach Police
Department.
Memorial United Methodist
and First Presbyterian, both on
Centre Street, and St. Peter's
Episcopal on Atlantic Avenue had
occult symbols - upside down
crosses and pentagrams - spray-
painted on their doors.
The incidents are under inves-
tigation.

School buses
vandalized
Eight school buses and a per-
sonal vehicle were vandalized last
month while parked in the Nassau
County School Board storage facil-
ity in Hilliard. The damage was
discovered and reported Dec. 29.
According to the police report,
several windows in the vehicles
were broken as well as two exteri-
or lights on nearby portable build-
ings.
David Buchanan, school board
director of transportation, told
detectives he last saw the vehicles
on Dec. 21 about 2 p.m. and that all
the gates were locked at that time.
Police believe the suspect or
suspects may have climbed over
the gates to get to the buses, then
threw rocks at the windows.


A car parked inside the bus
yard, a 1994 Geo Metro, had win-
dows broken as well; police were
not immediately able to contact the
owner.
Shoe prints were discovered at
the side gate entrance of the bus
yard; identical prints were found
inside the bus yard. The prints
were photographed.
The case is under investigation.
Gun incident
AJacksonville man was arrest-
ed Dec. 30 after he allegedly point-
ed a gun at a man who asked him
if he needed help.
Hakieem Omar Mack, 31,
reportedly was driving a sport util-
ity vehicle on Johnson Road while
the victim and his wife were out-
side their home smoking; the vic-
tim said he saw the vehicle lights
go on in the roadway in front of
his house, so he walked over and
asked the driver - believed to be
Mack - if he needed help.
Mack allegedly told the man to
mind his own business and "sat a
gun on the window seal pointed in
(the victim's) direction," accord-
ing to a report of the incident.
When police approached Mack
to discuss the report, he admit-
ted having a firearm and allowed
a deputy to secure a gun he had
in the center console of his
vehicle.
Mack told police he was waiting
for an acquaintance, but he was
not sure exactly where her home
was and that's why he was waiting
in the road. He said the victim "was
drunk and approached him and

began yelling ... he said that he
told him that he was not doing any-
thing but minding his own busi-
ness." Mack said he then saw his
acquaintance drive up, so he drove
to her home and she got into his
vehicle.
Mack was arrested on charges
of aggravated assault with a dead-
ly weapon and possession of a
weapon by a convicted felon.
Football fury
A Kirkland man was arrested
Dec. 26 after an altercation in the
parking lot of Publix on Sadler
Road.
According to witnesses, the
argument between suspect Marcus
Adam Young, 24, and James
Montgomery of Fernandina
Beach began in the checkout line
inside the grocery store when
Montgomery "made a derogatory
statement about a college football
team."
Montgomery then left the store
and Young reportedly followed him
into the parking lot, where he
kicked Montgomery's grocery
bag.
"As the victim turned, (Young)
struck him in the face with a closed
fist," according to a Fernandina
Beach Police Department report.
"The stunned victim fell to the
pavement ... (and) sustained a
bleeding facial wound."
Montgomery was treated at
Baptist Medical Center Nassau.
He reportedly had several broken
facial bones and a concussion.
Young was arrested on a charge of
aggravated battery.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008 NEWS News-Leader


A Hilliard family was displaced from its home when it caught fire Sunday night.


No one injured in



Hilliard house fire


Nassau County Fire Rescue
responded to a house fire at 11
p.m. Sunday, finding flames lap-
ping from the front window facing
the street at the home located in
the 37000 block of W. Sixth St. in
Hilliard.
Primary and secondary search-
es were all clear as firefighters
attacked the blaze, which breached
the ceiling in the master bedroom
and started running through the
attic.
A resident told fire officials she
had been watching television and
had just left with her baby to pick
up her husband from work.
"The fire began in the bedroom


near a wall receptacle," said Fire
Chief Chuck Cooper. "It appears
that the bedding materials and
other clothing were too close to
the receptacle and covered the
wiring not allowing the heat to
escape from the wiring."
The family had one smoke
alarm in the house.
"This is an unfortunate situa-
tion for this family who will be stay-
ing with family members for
awhile," said Cooper. "Due to the
quick response of Station 40 and
Volunteer Engine 4 just moments
behind, we were able to perform an
offensive attack to contain the blaze
to the room of origin and the attic


SUBMITTED


space overhead."
Firefighting crews performed
overhaul and continued to check
for hot spots for several hours after
the fire was out.
The American Red Cross
was contacted to meet with the
family and assist with food and
clothing.
There were no fire hydrants in
the area. Volunteers from Station 4
and Station 9 shuttled in water
tankers and pumpers and deliv-
ered additional water to the
scene.
Estimates from fire officials
were $18,000 damage to the struc-
ture and contents.

More leaving Florida


than moving in


EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Florida
has lost its allure while California
has picked up steam, according
to Atlas Van Lines' 2007 Migration
Patterns study. For the second
year in a row Atlas Van Lines
moved more residents out of the
state of Florida than into it.
Americans also continue to
migrate westward and move out of
the Rust Belt states.
"Atlas' migration study reflects
the movement of the nation and
identifies thriving hot spots in
America," said Greg Hoover, sen-
ior vice president and chief mar-
keting officer of Atlas World
Group. "Overall, the number of
household goods moves was
down for the industry, as the post-
Katrina exodus from Louisiana
into the surrounding states lev-
eled off and the housing market
continued to stagnate. Real estate
costs undoubtedly influenced
migration patterns this year as
well."
Here's a closer look at reloca-
tion patterns in 2007 identified in
Atlas' study:
* The nation continues to
experience a significant westward
expansion as Americans yearn for
rural settings over urban lifestyles.
Eight of the 13 areas classified as
inbound lie west of the Mississippi
River. For the first time since 1995,


Washington is an inbound state,
joining Alaska and neighbors
Nevada and Oregon. The number
of outbound moves for California
was the lowest recorded in 10
years.
* The Southwest pocket that
includes Texas, Colorado and
New Mexico also was a popular
destination in 2007. All three
states were classified as in-
bound, with Texas welcoming the
highest number of new residents
in the nation to be transported by
Atlas.
* The loss of jobs in the Rust
Belt states continues to push
Midwesterners into other areas
of the country. Wisconsin,
Michigan, Indiana and Ohio all
recorded significantly more traffic
heading out of state than in.
* The Northeastern states are
engaged in a popularity contest.
The most popular destination:
New Hampshire. The least popu-
lar states in the region: New York
and New Jersey.
* Relocation traffic out of
Louisiana and Mississippi stabi-
lized this year. For the fifth time in
six years, Alabama registered as
an inbound state.

migration survey and to view a

On Aug. 1, 1973, four local
businessmen who saw the bene-
fit of optimism charted the
Fernandina Beach Optimist
Club. The club started by
Richard Hopper, Ed Orouke, Jim
Sparkman and Art Willyoung is
still going strong.
In 1992, a student gave their
definition of optimism in an
essay: "Optimism is more than a
philosophy of life; it is a philoso-
phy of living. It is the acknowl-


Optimism is more than just a way
of thinking. It is a way of being."
The 55 members of the
Fernandina Beach Optimist Club
agree. They meet at noon each
Wednesday in the banquet room
at Sliders Seaside Grill on South
Fletcher Avenue.
"In a fun, laid-back atmos-
phere, we share time with
friends," said President Pierre
Laporte.

The club participates in a
number of ongoing community
service projects. For example, it
sponsors a his/her bike give-

The bike is given to a winner
drawn from all students with per-

problems over the next two
school quarters.
A local spelling bee is another
project.

EAGLES GROUNDED BY PIRATES


SPORTS TALK
JOHN L. CRAWFORD



Del Rio could

obtain Einstein'

status with win

move by Jack Del
Rio on the eve of the
regular season, the
Jacksonville Jaguars now have
a shot at NFL immortality.
Because the Jaguars coach
made the eyebrow-raising
decision to part ways with for-
mer QB Byron Leftwich and
put the offense in the hands of
a guy who had been penned as
a career back-up, Jacksonville
finds itself in a position to put
the River City on the national
radar forever.
The Jaguars flirted with
mediocrity for a spell against
Pittsburgh and seemed des-
tined to reclaim their rightful
seat in the back of the bus
after the Steelers charged
back from 18 points down to
take a 29-28 lead late in the
fourth quarter Saturday night.
But on a fourth-and-two with
time dwindling and the season
hanging in the balance, Del
Rio's decision paid dividends
when former career back-up
QB David Garrard did some-
thing Leftwich likely wouldn't,
or better yet, couldn't have
done: Win a playoff game.
And, as the famed Paul
Harvey would say, "Now you
know the rest of the story."
IfDel Rio pulls a
postseason rabbit out of
his hat and figures out a
way to beat New
England, we might
just have to nickname
him "Einstein."
OK, OK, drama aside, the
story has really just begun for
Jacksonville and could have a
miserable ending in Foxboro,
Mass., this weekend without a
much better effort than the
one the Jaguars produced in
the second half against the
Steelers. Tom Brady and the
New England Patriots are
probably foaming at the
mouth to get a hold of a
Jacksonville secondary that
seemed to turn to whipped
cream in the third and fourth
quarters last weekend. So how
do the Jaguars keep Brady
from picking them apart? I'm
not sure they can.
Del Rio's preseason deci-
sion proved to be genius. If he
pulls a postseason rabbit out
of his hat and figures out a
way to beat New England, we
might just have to nickname
him "Einstein"...
June "Cleaver" Jones has
resigned his position as head
coach of the University of
Hawaii. Speculation is that he
was unhappy with the lack of
commitment from the school's
athletic department. C'mon,
June, just say it. You left
because you didn't want to
visit The Swamp in August
after belittling Florida QB Tim
Tebow last month. Oh well,
good luck at SMU. You proba-
bly won't have to worry about
another BCS smackdown
there ...
Speaking of smackdown,
word has it that Michigan just
scored again. Seriously,
Florida's defense, or the lack
thereof, probably has the likes
of Duke shaking its head after
watching the Gators flounder
around against the Wolverines
on New Year's Day to the tune
of 41 points, 28 first downs
and 524 total yards allowed.
Stark contrast to the 82 total
yards Ohio State amassed on
the grandest stage last
January, hey Gator fans?
The trendy contention
before the game was that
Florida could earn its way into
the 2008 preseason Top 3 with
a convincing win over
Michigan. But last week's
dose of reality - the Gators
lost to the team that lost to
Division I-AA Appalachian
State - should serve to quell
the hype.
Bottom line, you can have

Hornet grapplers top three


district foes in tournament


The Yulee High School wrestling team
traveled to Terry Parker for the 16-team
USMC dual tournament Friday and Saturday.
The field was split into two pools of eight
teams and the Hornets went 3-4 in their
pool, beating three district opponents.
Yulee opened with Fletcher Friday and
lost 60-18 to the eventual pool champions.
"We then suffered a disappointing loss to
Englewood 42-30," YHS Coach Michael
Carty said. "We salvaged a win in the final
dual of the day against Stanton, 42-36.
"Wrestling shorthanded over the holi-
day break, we had to get a bit creative with
our lineup to pull out the few wins that we
did, Stanton included."
Yulee lost its first match of the day
Saturday to Nease, 47-30, but then edged
Jackson 33-30.


"We beat Jackson for the second time
this year with a late rally behind pins from
Billy Lowstetter and Josh Dennis," Carty
said.
St. Augustine edged Yulee 36-28 but the
Hornets finished with a win, defeating district
opponent Raines 42-30.
Sophomore George Shepard went unde-
feated for the tournament, raising his record
to 21-2 on the season. His only losses are to
ranked Georgia wrestlers. James Blocker
(18-5) and Dennis (15-6) both went 6-1.
Dennis wrestled state qualifier Jarrod
Hoover of St. Augustine in a rematch.
"Although Josh lost the decision, he had
him on his back for the second time, nearly
securing the fall," Carty said.
Yulee (7-8) competed Tuesday in the
county tournament at Fernandina Beach.

Overtime


win for



Hornets

BETH JONES
News Leader
The Yulee High School Hornets
suffered a trio of losses in the KSA
Holiday Tournament in Orlando
Dec. 26-29 but rebounded to beat
Baldwin 75-62 in overtime Friday.
'Though we've lost our games
in the KSA tournament the first
two years, we've competed at a
high level and the lifelong memo-
ries and team-bonding time that
the guys experience is worth the
trip," said Robert Barrow, YHS
boys basketball coach. "Also, the
competition we face down there is
much tougher than what we regu-
larly face during our season. The
guys get a chance to see the high
level of players that exist through-
out the rest of the country as well."
The win over Baldwin pushed
the Hornets' record to 7-6 overall
and 6-1 in the district.
"Which is much better than
what it was this time a year ago,"
Barrow said. "Baldwin played their
hearts out, taking us into halftime
tied 24-24 and eventually pushing
us into overtime at the end of reg-
ulation. We managed to come out
strong in the extra quarter and fin-
ish the game."
Jarell Mitchell paced the
Hornets with 25 points.
"Demetrius Small started out
slow but came on strong late to fin-
ish with 15 points," Barrow said.
"I'm very proud of this group
because we have very few players
that have experienced this level of
pressure and the fact that we have
four guys averaging in double fig-
ures speaks volumes about their
teamwork and sacrifice. Hopefully
we can take care of business this
Thursday at Episcopal, setting the
stage to potentially take over the
top spot in the district standings
when we face Ribault this Friday at
home."
The Fernandina Beach Pirates
rallied from a halftime deficit to
beat Trinity Christian 68-59 Friday.
Trinity was up 32-22 at halftime,
but the Pirates came back in the
the third quarter, outscoring the
guests 21-9 to take a 43-41 lead
after three quarters. The Pirates
outscored Trinity 25-18 in the final
quarter.
Carlos Holcey led the Pirates
with 22 points and Jake Brogdon
scored 11. Holcey also had 10
rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Patrick Garvin pulled down six
boards and had four steals. Chris
Keffer and Trey Kublbock had
nine points apiece and Keffer had
five rebounds while Kublbock was
credited with three.
The Pirates traveled to
Episcopal Tuesday and play at
Bishop Kenny Friday. They are on
the road again next week with a
game at Middleburg Tuesday
before returning home to host the
Hornets Jan. 18.

Too chilly for men's



blitz on Wednesday


The second day of the New
Year was a chilly one. In fact, it
was too cold and windy for the
blitz players as too few showed
up to have a Wednesday blitz.
Friday was much better
although still a bit on the cool
side for the 52 players who took
part in the blitz at the Fernandina
Beach Golf Club. There were
some good scores turned in,
especially by the higher handi-
caps. Rudy Campanale (88) and
Doug Morris (85) shared individ-
ual honors at plus 10. Charles
Benefield (88) was third at plus 9.
With Benefield and
Campanale on the same team
with Ron Therriault (90, plus 3)
and Dennis Sassenger (90, minus
4), the team finished first at plus
18.
Second place also had a big
minus but, with John Bray (81,
plus 7), Jim Deal (83, plus 6),
Tom Gray (81, plus 4) and Scott
Adams (93, minus 6), it was good
enough for plus 11.
Third place at plus 8 went to
Larry Gallo (86, plus 6), K.
Davies (80, plus 3), Lew Akins
(93, even) and Stan Miller (92,
minus 1).
There was a tie for fourth
place at plus 5 between the teams
of Morris, George Murphy (88,
even), Carl Guth (87, minus 1),
Mike Lovejoy (87, minus 4) and
M. Vanderhoof (102, minus 3),
Jim White (98, plus 1), Doug
Wolfe (84, plus 4), Chris
Cheshire (97, plus 3).
Association members are
reminded of the upcoming cap-
tain's choice tournament
Saturday. Visit the pro shop for
details and sign-up.

Twenty-one players took part
in the Saturday Morning
Breakfast Mixer with Carl
O'Rourke claiming top honors

The Players Championship,
Tour Academy TPC Sawgrass
and Baptist Health teamed up in
October to begin offering "Pink
Links," part of the Link-Up-2-Golf
program, to help breast cancer
survivors get involved with the
game of golf while socializing
with other survivors. The ulti-
mate goal is to provide breast
cancer survivors with an environ-
ment that promotes their healing
process.
To be considered for "Pink
Links," golfers must be breast
cancer survivors at least six
months out of treatment. The
program offers the chance to
learn about the game and to
improve well-being through
increased arm motion and walk-
ing.
The nomination form can be
submitted by friends, co-workers,
relatives or the breast cancer sur-
vivors themselves. The deadline
for nominations for the next ses-
sion is Feb. 1. Those chosen will
be sent a registration form and
medical release to be completed
and returned. The names of
those not selected for this ses-
sion will be kept on file for future
sessions.
Each session is designed
around three levels of instruc-
tion. Each level consists of four
one-and-a-half-hour sessions,
held at the TPC Sawgrass
Clubhouse. The level-one class is
free for breast cancer survivors,
thanks to both The Players and
the Tour Academy TPC
Sawgrass. The level-two and
level-three sessions will be
offered at half the cost, $75 for
each four-week session.
The schedule for the second
set of Pink Links sessions is as
follows: Level 1, Feb. 23, March
1, March 8, March 15; Level 2,
March 29, April 5, April 12, April
19; Level 3, May 17, May 24, May
31, June 7. The deadline for sign-
ing up for the third session of
Pink Links will be June 6. Level
1, June 21, June 28, July 5, July
12; Level 2, July 26, Aug. 2, Aug.

G P oTp
SSome high-handicap golfers don't
break 100 because they are weak
on their short game. A good place
to practice this short game is to
play a testy Par 3 course. Here
you will use mostly your #7, #8, #9
and wedges. A round or two each
week on this format will surely sharpen your skill
with short irons. Concentrate on the club selec-
tion and learn when to pitch and when to chip.
Good shots here make easier putts and better
scores. Set-up properly in comfort. Watch as the
ball comes off the clubface, down the line to the
pin. Think pin. It works better than thinking water
or bush. A little quick hint: Always tee up on a par
three. This allows you to strike the ball safely
avoiding all-too-common thin hits. Think positive.
If you think you can, you will.


Adams Golf announced the signing of Rory Sabbatini and Aaron Baddeley last week. .
Sabbatini is a four-time champion on the PGATOUR and the 11th-ranked player in the
world. As part of the endorsement deal, Sabbatini will wear the Adams Golf hat, carry the 2 .
Adams Golf staff bag and play the company's Idea a3 irons, Idea Pro hybrid and Insight
driver. Sabbatini is coming off his best year as a tour pro having won the Crowne Plaza \
Invitational at Colonial and finishing in the Top 10 at nine other tournaments, including a T2 at
The Masters. He was the only player to post Top 10 finishes at all four FedEx Cup Playoff events and he fin-
ished the year ranked sixth on the Money List having won over $4.5 million. Aaron Baddeley is a two-time
PGA TOUR champion and the 18th-ranked player in the world. Baddeley is also coming off his best season
as a tour pro with one victory, seven Top 10s and a sixth-place finish in the FedEx Cup standings.

OUTDOORS






Downsizing for big winter catches


stocked with live shrimp transported
from the West Coast. West Coast
shrimp are much smaller than East
Coast shrimp, have a shorter head and are more of
a caramel color. The majority of East Coast shrimp
have migrated out into the ocean due to recent cold
water temperatures, leaving local live shrimp boats
with empty nets.
Given a choice, local backwater live shrimp fish-
ermen would rather fish with local live shrimp. It's
the natural thing to do. However, when the cold of
winter drops backwater tem-
peratures down into the mid
50s, West Coast shrimp may be
the only option. And in many
situations of backwater fishing,
they still are very productive
when targeting Amelia Island
sea trout, flounder and redfish.
Another big consideration
benefits the local angler's wal-
let when purchasing live West
Terry Lacoss Coast shrimp. The price of
. ... . West Coast shrimp at most bait
and tackle shops might be
OUTDOORS slightly higher than when bait
shops were selling local
shrimp. However, West Coast shrimp are more apt
to stay alive longer in your livewell because they
have been chemically treated for the long trip from
the West Coast.
You won't have to purchase the typical 100 live
shrimp that you would need during the warmer
months as well, because those pesky pinfish and
baitfish are now pretty lethargic. During the winter
fishing season, you might need to pay a little more
for West Coast Shrimp per dozen, but instead of
purchasing 100 live shrimp, you may only need to
purchase 3-5 dozen.
Smaller baits are a better choice for winter fish-
ing. In many situations of winter fishing, particular-
ly when the water temperatures are falling and
there is a cold front passing through, both salt and
freshwater game fish are more apt to take a smaller
bait than the typical larger baits used during
warmer water temperatures.
"I couldn't believe that big trout took that small
West Coast shrimp," Jacksonville's Bill Beard said.
'The hook was actually larger than the live
shrimp."
Beard was fishing in the deep waters located
just south of the mouth of Egans Creek, where bro-
ken dock pilings and a rocky shoreline give way to
a deep channel.
"My captain, Terry D. Lacoss, had actually net-
ted a few live shrimp and barbed one onto my hook
while chuckling about the size of the shrimp,"
Beard said. 'They were super small compared to
the size of some of our local shrimp. As my small
shrimp drifted along the rocky shoreline under a
popping cork, a six-pound gator trout took the West
Coast shrimp and, after a few power runs, was net-
ted."
"Some of the West Coast live shrimp were actu-
ally fairly good size," Lacoss said. "However, most
of the sea trout were hitting the smaller shrimp. I
believe this time of year, most of the big shrimp
have moved out of the rivers and bays, where a few
smaller shrimp are still hanging around. The trout
are more likely to eat the smaller shrimp because
that's what is available. You have to 'match the
hatch.'"
During low tide, smaller live bullhead minnows
were also substituted for live shrimp and worked
best for a school of Amelia Island redfish.
"We located a nice school of reds, but they
turned down our live shrimp," Lacoss said. "So
right away I barbed live bullhead minnows to our
live bait hooks and the redfish began to bite."
Bullhead minnows are also a much smaller live
bait than the typical live finger mullet that many
fishermen use during the warmer fishing seasons.
Offshore fishermen would also do well to down-
size their baits during the winter fishing season.
One of the best winter kingfish baits is slow
trolling with dead cigar minnows. Fished down
deep with the aid of downriggers, dead cigar min-
nows are seldom turned down by a hungry winter
kingfish. However, during the warmer months,
larger live baits will typically work best.
Another deadly winter fishing tactic is drifting a
dead cigar minnow with kingfish tackle from the
transom of your fishing boat while bottom fishing.
You are likely to catch king mackerel, dolphin

cobia and more.
Smaller baits also work best for winter black sea
bass. It is a good idea when fishing with squid, cut
baits or dead cigar minnows to use just enough bait


to cover the hook.
Freshwater bass fishermen will enjoy more
strikes when using a 5- to 6-inch plastic worm dur-
ing the winter bass fishing season versus an 8- to

New fees for licenses
A new fee schedule is in effect
for all recreational licenses
issued by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission. During its 2007
session, the Florida Legislature
passed a bill to increase the fees
for all recreational saltwater and
freshwater fishing and hunting
licenses. Hunting license fees
were last increased in 1979 and
fishing license fees in 1989.
All the fees from these licens-
es go back into conserving fish
and wildlife resources and bene-
fit anglers and hunters. The
increased revenue, expected to
total $10 million annually within
four years, will not create new
programs, but will offset a pre-
dicted $12.5 million deficit by
2010. In addition to issuing the
licenses, FWC is charged with
directly conserving fish and
wildlife resources, and it creates
and enforces rules and regula-
tions regarding hunting and fish-
ing in the state as well as promot-
ing boating safety and access.


FWC presented its findings to
the Legislature late last year. The
projected deficit would leave rev-
enue streams for marine fish-
eries, freshwater fisheries and
hunting in jeopardy.
Purchase recreational licens-
es online at MyFWC.com, or by
calling 1-888-347-4356 or 1-888-
486-8356, or from numerous
sporting goods retailers and at
tax collectors' offices. If licenses
are not purchased at tax collec-
tors' offices, additional process-
ing fees will be applied.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008
NEWS-LEADER/FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


Make the most ofthose rare, cool winter days


year we get a dose of cold
Weather. It is hard to recog-
nize friends and neighbors all
bundled up. Everyone digs deep for layers
of coats, sweaters and scarves. Gone is
our usual humidity and out come the
moisturizing lotions and creams. Chapped
lips are moistened with Blistex or
Chapstick.
Determined to pursue our usual activi-
ties we dress for comfort and forget any
kind of fashion statement or coordinated
look. Some even look like Charlie Brown
characters bundled up in their keep-warm
clothing. Friends we usually see in shorts
and T-shirts are barely recognizable as
they brave the cooler temperatures in
rarely donned cozy apparel. No more pink
and turquoise - bring on the browns,
blacks and blues.
Big Guy and I never agree on tempera-
ture. Either he is too warm or I am too
cold. The temperature drop challenges us
even more as we seek a mutually agree-


able temperature.
Once tucked in for
the night, I do
notice the Big Guy
is less likely to kick
off the down quilt.
Guess we need
to remember that
these cool days are
Mother Nature's
way to remind us
how nice the weath-
DickieAnderson er is most of the
- ... - time. It is hard to
remember the dog
FROM THE days of August and
PORCH the heat and humid-
ity. We Floridians
are spoiled most of the time and rarely
deal with cold temperatures.
No whining from our house. We check
the temperatures and weather reports
from the homes of our friends and fami-
lies who live "up north." Cold is relative.
We fuss if it gets anywhere near freezing


while they are dealing with temperatures
closer to zero, not to mention the evil
"wind chill factor."
The cool weather does bring back
memories - mostly bad. Swirling snow,
below-zero temperatures, cars and trucks
stuck on interstates, airplanes sitting on
the tarmac. Digging out wooly sweaters
and warm jackets is a lot better than dig-
ging out winter boots, mittens, scarves
and hats. Enjoying the good life in Florida,
we transplanted northerners sometimes
forget how difficult it was to crawl out of
that warm bed and face a cold wintry day.
Would the car start? Would we have to
shovel our way out of the driveway?
Would schools be closed?
Determined golfers and tennis players
are not going to let a little cold weather
keep them from their daily rounds and
matches. They come up with some pretty
unique costumes in their determination to
play no matter what. Sports enthusiasts
know the art of layering.
Our morning walks are much faster-


paced and shorter. The dogs do not want
to spend any more time outside than is
absolutely necessary. When we let them
out in the backyard they come back in
record time. Forget greyhound racing.
Two Yorkies can move pretty fast if it is
cold enough.
When the temperatures drop, I fear for
my backyard garden and its collection of
plants that are used to sun-filled days. I
used to go to my linen closet, pull out
sheets and towels and carefully cover the
most vulnerable. Now it's tough love.
Potted plants come in but the others have
to tough it out.
It isn't all bad news. A little bit of win-
try weather can be fun. Settle in with a big
bowl of popcorn and get into a good movie
or curl up with that book you have been
waiting to read. Make the most of the rare
cool days - think of them as gifts.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your com-
ments at dickie@dickieanderson.com. Books
are available at local book and gift stores or
on line at www.dickieanderson.com.

LITERARY LEANINGS


Camel Bookmobile
One Book/One Community
is an annual program sponsored
by the Friends of the Library
and the Nassau County Public
Library System.
This year's featured author,
Masha Hamilton, will appear at
the Amelia Island Book Festival
and her book will be discussed
at various venues early this year.
For further details, call 277-
7365.
Hamilton's H i4 l .
The Camel
Bookmobile is
a tale about
an American
librarian who
leaves
Brooklyn to Hamilton
work for a
relief organi-
zation in Africa that sends books
on the backs of camels to forgot-
ten villages.
Fiona Sweeney believes that
books should be everywhere,
and although
her intentions
, are entirely
m pure, when
S the bookmo-
bile causes a
feud among
the nomadic
tribe it aims
to help, she
realizes her
good deeds may come with a
high price.
The actual Camel
Bookmobile made its first run
almost a decade ago. Three
dromedaries trudged through
arid northeastern Kenya near
the unstable border with
Somalia to bring a library to set-
tlements so remote they had
become nearly invisible.
Lacking roads, clean water, and
food, those who inhabited these
villages had never been to
school, much less held a book in
their hands. The books that
came to them were rare and pre-
cious gifts, allowing them to
briefly escape the reality of
squalor and destitution.
Hamilton first heard about
the project from her daughter
one autumn afternoon as she
drove her three children to the
library. She'd read an article in
Time For Kids and one detail
piqued her interest. Because


books were rare and precious in
the reaches of Africa far from
the safari vacationers, the camel-
powered library initiated a
severe fine. If even one person
lost a book, the bookmobile
would boycott that entire village,
choosing another to visit
instead.
The fine was intended both
to protect books so literacy
could spread, and to encourage
a wandering people to adopt the
practices of a more settled
world. But reality, as always,
would be more complex than
theory.
Hamilton is the author of two
previous novels: Staircase of a
Thousand Steps (2001) and The
Distance Between Us (2004),
named one of the best books of
the year by Library Journal.
Hamilton worked as a foreign
correspondent for The
Associated Press for five years
in the Middle East, where she
covered the intefadeh, the peace
process and the partial Israeli
withdrawal from Lebanon. Then
she spent five years in Moscow,
where she was a correspondent
for the Los Angeles Times, wrote
a newspaper column, "Postcard
from Moscow," and reported for
NBC/Mutual Radio. She wrote
about Kremlin politics as well as
life for average Russians under
Gorbachev and Yeltsin during
the coup and collapse of the
Soviet Union. She reported from
Afghanistan in 2004 and in 2006,
she traveled in Kenya to
research The Camel Bookmobile
and to interview street kids in
Nairobi and drought and famine
victims in the isolated northeast.

Old bedding needed


to help homeless pets


The Nassau Humane Society,
671 Airport Road, Fernandina
Beach, has an ongoing need for
donations to make pet bedding.
Synthetic fabrics dry quickly, even
in the sunshine without a dryer.
If you have any old bedspreads,
blankets, sweatshirts, pants, pil-
lows etc. that you plan to throw
away, please consider donating
them to the shelter.
One old queen-size synthetic
blanket makes six dog blankets.
One old queen-size synthetic bed


spread makes 20 kennel size cat
pillows or four dog beds and 10 cat
beds.
Three old large sweatshirts and
one old bed pillow make four
stuffed pet beds. Six old sweat-
pants and one old bed pillow make
three stuffed pet beds.
Old clothes made of micro
fleece, polyester, acrylic and micro
fiber can be made into pet bedding
that dries in half the time as natu-
ral fibers. This saves time, elec-
tricity and money.
