County axes tree ordinance again


MICHAEL PARNELL
News Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
took an ax to the heart of a pro-
posed Natural Resources
Protection law Monday, cutting the
tree ordinance from it. They prom-
ised to revive the tree protection
law, but they have splintered its


predecessors, and this is an elec-
tion year.
West Side opponents of the tree
law hammered the commission,
which voted 4-1 to remove the tree
ordinance even before giving it the
customary second hearing. Only
Commissioner Mike Boyle, co-
chair of the committee that spent
more than six months framing the


proposed law, supported it in the
end: "The tree ordinance is the
heart and soul of this entire sec-
tion. I'm not sure it's logical or pro-
ductive to remove it."
But the board stripped it, leav-
ing only relatively uncontroversial
sections on wetlands, beach dunes
and marine turtles - already codi-
fied in county law - and a new sec-

Going out on a limb,

Charter changes



on April ballot?

ANGELA DAUGHTRY ' Vice Mayo
News Leader Joe Gerrit


Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have directed the city attor-
ney to prepare a city charter
amendment for voters to consider
at the April 8 municipal election.
But most of the proposed changes
would be considered at subsequent
elections.
If the commission endorses the
ballot language, residents will be
asked if the city attorney and city
clerk should have supervisory pow-
ers over their own employees.
Currently the city manager super-
vises the employees of both City
Clerk Mary Mercer and City
Attorney Tammi Bach.

New lighting for


city sports fields


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
City commissioners have
approved $210,000 worth of new
lighting for three sports fields in
Fernandina Beach.
The 5-0 vote Jan. 8 will allow
lights to be replaced at Charles
Albert Field, Field 3 at the Ybor
Alvarez Athletic Complex and the
Central Park tennis courts, said
Nan Voit, Parks and Recreation
director.
Musco Lighting will provide
lighting and equipment for $136,000
and Southeast Electrical Contractor
will install the lighting for $74,000.
Voit said the old equipment had
deteriorated and that the new light-
ing would be more energy efficient.
She noted that the updated light-


ing was also the last to be brought
into the new control system.
Musco Lighting provides a light-
ing control service through Control
Link, a company that can be con-
tacted to automatically turn lighting
on and off for sporting events.
Voit said in addition to providing,
maintaining and paying for sports
lighting, the Parks and Recreation
Department also is responsible for
the decorative lighting in downtown
Fernandina Beach. The average
electric bill for lighting during
sports seasons, she said, is about
$1,400 a month.
She estimated it would cost from
$650,000-$700,000 to replace all
sports lighting at once, for example
"if a hurricane came and blew
everything down."

SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves says it is getting more
and more difficult to recruit new
hires for his department.
It is a trend he expects to see
continue as employees hired
before Oct. 1, 2005, quit or retire.
Nassau County Clerk of Court
John Crawford says he's having
the same problem. Recruiting and
keeping people is difficult when
you might end up with two doing
exactly the same job while one
makes thousands more than the
other because they were hired
before Oct. 1, 2005.
That is the date the county com-
mission decided to stop paying 50
percent - or anything - toward
health insurance premiums for
employees purchasing coverage
for their dependents.

The county pays the entire pre-
mium for just the employee, and 50
percent of the premium for family
coverage for employees hired
before Oct. 1, 2005. Those hired
after that date, like Nick Gaskill, are
out of luck.
Gaskill is a master technician
for the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office. He said he was shocked
when he saw how much his health
insurance would cost if he added
his wife and two daughters. So
Gaskill pays $392.93 a month, while


his wife gets health insurance
through her job with the Nassau
County School Board.
"There's no way I can afford to
put her on it," Gaskill said. "I was
shocked, because I knew people
who had worked here and I knew
what they paid (for insurance pre-
miums), but of course they were
hired before (Oct. 1, 2005)."
If his wife lost her job, Gaskill
said he's not sure what he would
do.
"I'd have to try to add her on to
mine, but I don't see how I could do

TREE Continued from 1A
"I'm still so angry with that
thing at the intersection of Amelia
Parkway (and A1A) ... Those are
the things we are trying to solve,"
he said. But the county's current
Amelia Island tree law, which
remains intact in lieu of the stricter
new law, failed to stop the clearing
of trees on that corner because it
applied only to commercial devel-
opment of more than 35,000
square feet.
"I thought the idea of a tree
ordinance was to stop some of this
(clearcutting) out here on A1A,"
Commissioner Tom Branan said.
But, "This goes too far."
Too far was across 1-95 and into
the West Side of Nassau County,
where residents fiercely defend
their property rights. Only two
East Side residents supported the
proposed tree law - no "citizens'
army" followed East Nassau
Homeowners Council President
Robert Weintraub this time - but
a parade of West Siders gave the
commission a dose of straight talk.
"I'm willing to work with any-
body, but you gotta come to me
and talk to me about it. You can't
just cram it down my throat," said
Austin Norris of Bryceville.
Noting a sycamore tree he
planted 35 years ago that now is
undermining his sidewalk, Gene
Bennett of Bryceville said, "I plant-
ed it and I want to take it down. I
don't want to go to Fernandina
Beach to get permission."
"Contrary to popular belief,
there are intelligent people living
on the West Side of Nassau
County," he added angrily.
"They're not your trees, they're
my trees. And I'm gonna cut 'em
when I get ready, whether I got to
go to jail or not," George Porter of
Bryceville said.
"Aim it at the big developers,
don't aim it at guys like me."
"A lot of people don't under-
stand this ordinance. I don't under-
stand this ordinance. I can't get
my arms around what we're trying
to accomplish here," said Tom
Ford of Bryceville, chair of the
county Planning and Zoning
Board, of the 100-plus pages of
the proposed ordinance and sup-
porting materials.
"(The small landowners) are
not the ones cutting the trees ...
The small landowners are the only
ones this ordinance affects," he
said.
"People in Bryceville are not
aware of this ordinance. People in
Callahan are not aware of this ordi-

nance."
But enough were to deflect it
despite the efforts of Growth
Management Director Walter
Fufidio to reassure. He noted the
law would affect only 40 percent of
the trees in a development: "The
first 60 percent is your business;
we don't care about it."
He said critics were mistaken
the new law would increase fire
hazards. It includes "fire-wise prin-
ciples" and would leave the coun-
ty bII ll..i off than before in terms
of addressing fire danger."
Pines and saw palmetto trees
were exempt, as is "bona fide agri-
culture," he said.
Fufidio said the removal of
dead or diseased or hazardous
trees was exempt, though home-
owners would still need to seek
permission from the county to do
so. "That seems to be the issue
I'm hearing," the need of home-
owners to seek permission to
remove exempt trees, he said.
"I really think this thing is not
going to take a lot of enforce-
ment," as residents would comply
after being educated about its pro-
visions, he said.
To that end, commissioners
agreed the tree ordinance would
proceed only after meetings with
the public around the county, espe-
cially on the West Side.
"I'm not prepared to make this
an East Side/West Side . . ."
Fufidio said before Ford inter-
jected, "You've already done that,
Walter."
"This thing has blown up" on
the West Side, Marshall said.
"We have to make sure the
public understands what we're
wanting, and they don't."
What began as a tree ordi-
nance turned into a natural
resources law. Now, minus the
tree ordinance, the natural
resources law will be considered
at a second public hearing Jan. 28.
"This has languished for
years," Boyle said of the tree ordi-
nance. It will for awhile longer.
Public meetings will be scheduled
before it comes back to the com-
mission.
Presumably that will be before
the fall, when Marshall, Branan
and Higginbotham are all up for
reelection.

that," he said.
Gaskill took a pay cut when he
left his job at a car dealership to
work at the sheriff's office, but said
he lives in Nassau County and want-
ed to do something for the com-
munity.
But many other potential
employees aren't feeling the same
way.
Both Seagraves and Crawford
said they've had trouble recruiting
new hires in the past two years
because of the insurance rates.
"We've had people leave, and
we've had people turn (the job)
down that applied," Crawford said.
"We brought a highly credentialed
person here who we needed from
another state agency, and we had to
pay them $10,000 more just to
match the health insurance cost."
Lower premiums are available
if the employee chooses the HSA, or
health savings account, plan. With
deductibles of $1,250 for the
employee and $2,500 for the family
members, the monthly premium

account. The county contributes

$150 to the account. But with this
plan, employees and their families
must pay all expenses out of pock-
et until their deductible is met - not
a practical option for some people
living on a budget.
But living on a budget is also
what the county commissioners
were trying to do when they made
the decision to stop subsidizing fam-
ily coverage for employees, specu-
lates County Coordinator Ed
Sealover. He was not with the coun-
ty in 2005, but said the decision like-
ly was made to save money.
"I'm guessing that it was prima-
rily a financial issue," Sealover said.
"I'm guessing ... that the reason the
county took that position is strictly
to reduce costs."
While Crawford and Seagraves
say they have asked the commis-
sioners to consider going back to
subsidizing family premiums,
Sealover said that likelihood is "slim
to none." But he said the county
may look into alternative methods
of health care coverage that could
save money for employees.
"Health care costs in America
are a very significant issue," he said.
"And it's a serious issue for the
county."

CHARTER Continued from 1A
are about 43 other revisions to the
charter recommended by the
review committee that would have
to be voted on by citizens before
becoming law.
There are 13 other revisions
that can be changed by ordinance,
which commissioners could vote
on in the next few months.
A special work session is to be
scheduled so city staff can deter-
mine how to proceed with the
large number of referendum ques-
tions citizens will have to decide,
said Bach. She said the city could
have a special election before the
Nov. 4 general election to split up
the large number of questions to
be decided by voters.
Bach after the meeting noted
that because municipalities must
follow a "single-subject rule," revi-
sion questions can't be grouped
together on a public ballot.
Questions also are limited to 75
words or less. Because of this,
she said, questions may have to be
spread over several special elec-
tions. Bach said she and the city
clerk were working together to
get properly worded revisions out
to the voting public.


Bach has previous experience
working on a revised city charter
with the city of Largo, which she
said was a great help in advising
the city of Fernandina Beach. She
pointed out that the Fernandina
Beach charter had not been
revised in a long time, which was
why there are so many proposed
changes.
Bach said commissioners had
decided not to add a Code of
Ethics section because it was
already covered by Chapter 112 of
the Florida Statutes. A Citizens
Bill of Rights that was proposed to
be added to the charter also
was not necessary, she said,
because those rights are declared
in the state and federal constitu-
tions.
She suggested instead that the
city attach a "rules of order and
decorum" section to public meet-
ing agendas, so citizens are
advised of their rights to be heard
at public meetings.
Among the more substantive
charter changes are a proposal to
extend terms of commissioners
to four years and to require two
commissioners to live in each of
two residential districts.

A popular Yulee entertainment
venue has a new owner, a new look
and a new name.
Strikers Family Bowling Center,
formerly Nassau Bowling Center,
reopened Jan. 8 after extensive inte-
rior renovations and upgrades,
including high-tech installations.
The improvements to the facil-
ity on US 17 South "change it
around" and "bring a new look to
Yulee," owner and professional
bowler Joe Ford said.
Originally from Texas, Ford
began bowling in the Navy, where
he earned his merchant marine
chief engineering ocean endorse-
ment.
"A lot of people told me I had the
skills" of a professional bowler. He
pursued his interest and received
his professional card as a regional
bowler three years ago.
To improve the bowling and
party experience for patrons, the
approaches on the bowling lanes
have been resurfaced. Also, the
concourse was extended three feet
and new carpet installed.
Other changes include com-
pletely renovated restrooms and
all new snack bar equipment. The
concession menu features new
items with larger portions.
"I look to take care of the
bowlers," Ford said.

Joe Ford, left, owner, and Walt Romedy, general manager,
pose inside Strikers Family Bowling Center.


And he is well on his way. A
church bowling league and more
than a dozen parties have booked
the center since it reopened, gen-
eral manager Walt Romedy said.
State-of-the-art "cosmic" light
shows at the bowling center are
the best in North Florida, Romedy
said. "I've seen what is the best
now and ours will far exceed it."
Patrons can request music
videos from the computerized video
jukebox and view them on 10-foot
video projection screens. The bowl-


ing center also offers live radio
broadcasts during private parties.
A primary goal for the business
was to "change the ambience" and
convert the bar to a lounge,
Romedy said. "We want this to be
a lounge and not a red-neck bar," he
said. The smoking lounge will
serve adults only and will remain
closed during hours designated for
youth events. A full-time security
officer serves on staff.
Young people are the audience
Ford wants to reach. "I love bowl-
ing. I love promoting bowling, espe-
cially with youth, to keep them off
the streets," said Ford, who has
coached youth bowling. "The kids
have to have something to do."
Strikers Family Bowling Center
is open from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m.
weekdays, with extended hours on
weekends. For information, call
225-1077.

Fernandina Beach Commis-
sioners have decided to go back to
the drawing board on the new wel-
come center proposed for the
downtown harbor.
They've delayed the project for
six months, unsure of the appro-
priate use or purpose of what will
be a gateway between the water-
front and downtown.
The original drawing board is
where the problems began. The
design of the welcome center was
done by an out-of-town architect
with another-town visions. Not sur-
prising, the
city doesn't
even shop
local.
- -" The design
of the wel-
. , come center
looks like
something
*- suitable for a
S e new, cosmo-
Steve politan city.
Nicklas And it's being
- ** - placed at the
STEVE'S center, the
focal point, of
MARKET an old, historic
PLACE town.
Here, rus-
tic is preferred over fancy. Shrimp
and pirates are our heritage. And
we're proud of the distinction.
The proposed welcome center
has a trendy design, with corru-
gated metal siding - but trendy
eventually goes out of style. It's just
like the teepee-shaped design of
the old welcome center, which met
the fate of the wrecking ball when
it lost its luster.
The proposed welcome center
is just as misplaced. It's not that
the design is ugly or unappealing.
It just doesn't fit in here. It's like try-
ing to dress up a pirate, or a crusty
shrimp boat. The appeal is in the
authenticity and uniqueness.
The town proclaimed as the
"Isle of Eight Flags" and the
"Birthplace of the Shrimping
Industry" can certainly erect some-
thing commemorative of its fabled
past. Especially for the $1 million
price tag attached to the new cen-
ter.
City commissioners wondered
if the proposed center would be
usable by locals. It must have some

Investing class
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
financial markets, including
stocks and bonds and popular
investment vehicles such as
mutual funds. The class has
been offered periodically 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 retire-
ment vehicles; Feb. 26, imple-
menting 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 col-
lege). The college can be
reached at 548-4432.

ifies it provide a service for passing
boaters. This would include new
shower stalls and restrooms, for
instance.
But $1 million is a big price for
a glorified bath house. (There
would also be some city office
space in the new center.) More
importantly, however, it must look
the part.
It should fit in with the rest of
the buildings in downtown. The
design must not have received the
blessing of the downtown historic
council, which sets rigid standards
for new and add-on construction.
Apparently city commissioners can
bypass or override the standards
everyone else must meet.
Let's draw upon the same local
innovation tapped into by the annu-
al shrimp festival. Each year, there
is a competition whereby local
artists sketch the new design. It's
local, it's unique, and it's innova-
tive.
Sounds like a fitting start for a
new welcome center.
Steve Nicklas is a financial advi-
sor who lives on Amelia Island. He
can be reached at thenicklas

Ground was broken last month
for the two-story structure, which
will open in 2009. It will accommo-

be allocated to intensive care. If


additional rooms are needed in the
future, a third floor can be added.
When the new building is com-

built in 1977, will be torn down. At
that point, the entire hospital will
have been completely remodeled,
expanded and updated since it
joined Baptist Health in 1994.

Eric Childers, a self-described
"working man" and president of
the Fernandina Pirates Club,
intends to seek election to the
Fernandina Beach City
Commission in the April election.
Childers will seek the Group 3

Leeper, who has not announced
whether he will seek reelection.
Childers, 48, came to
Fernandina from Atlanta 12 years
ago. He now works in sales for

In a statement issued to
announce his campaign, Childers
wrote: "While wrestling with the

Not worth a


plugged nickel


gallon gas tax ended on the first day of
this year - for what that's worth.
The rising price of fuel oil threatens
to swamp gasoline prices later this year. As the
world oil price bounces up and down, as high as
$100 a barrel, some analysts predict we'll be pay-
ing $4 for a gallon of gas by Memorial Day.
That wayward nickel just gets lost in the slosh-
ing.
Cynics among us suggest a more sinister rea-
son for the failure of gas prices to drop a nickel
on New Year's Day. They contend a conspiracy of
local gas dealers to keep prices artificially high
and pocket the nickel for themselves instead of
passing the savings on to us. Difficult to prove,
but food for thought.
In any case, the nickel is no longer going to
pave Nassau County roads. New county commis-
sioners Mike Boyle and Barry Holloway won
election in 2006 in part for their promise to end
the gas tax, and the commission ended it last
year, effective Jan. 1, 2008.
As for those roads, we await a comprehensive
plan to pay for their upkeep.
We regularly rail against higher taxes, and we
pointed out the political foolishness of the nickel
tax before it was approved. But we also support
paving and maintaining our rural roads, so we're
anxious to see how the commission balances its
responsibilities for public services and conserva-
tive fiscal policy.
Meanwhile, it's costing more to drive, nickel
tax or not, which isn't good for our local economy.
Reducing our dependence on foreign oil, coming
up with alternative energy policies and keeping
the price of gasoline reasonable are national pri-
orities that deserve more attention. Perhaps a
new president will see to that beginning next
year.
That's our two cents' worth, or should we say
a nickel, inflation being what it is.



COMMUNITY THANKS

Christmas gifts for veterans
The Amelia Island Chapter (AIDAR) of the
National Society of the Daughters of the American
Revolution collects individual comfort items each
year for our veterans. This is the fifth year we've
taken gifts to veterans in Lake City.
Listed are the local dentists - Dr. Robert W.
Johnson, Dr. Kenneth A. Mertz, Jr., Dr. Mark R.
Olbina and Drs. C.K. Owens, Van Etta, & Kitson, PA
- and supermarkets - Food-Lion (Gary James, man-
ager), Publix (Craig Fitzpatrick, manager), Target
(Brian Strobel, manager), Wal-Mart (Fernandina
Beach, Robert Hawk, manager), Wal-Mart
Supercenter (Yulee, John Johnson, manager)
and Winn-Dixie (Fernandina Beach, Tim Martin,
director) - who contributed generously again this
year.
There are two veterans' establishments in Lake
City: Veterans Administrations Hospital and Robert
H. Jenkins, Jr., Veteran's Domiciliary Home of
Florida. This year "Winkie" Robinson and Sheryl
Harrell of the Amelia Island chapter were privi-
leged to deliver these gifts to the VA Hospital on
Dec. 11. We took 200 ditty bags (each contained a
toothbrush, tube of toothpaste, candy and chewing
gum). We were able to meet and greet so many of
the patients personally as we handed out the indi-
vidual gifts, three of whom were women veterans.
We wished each one a Merry Christmas and
thanked them for their service to our country. In
addition, we took bulk supplies (shaving cream,
razor blades, T-shirts, etc.) to be distributed by the
hospital to the veterans as needed.
The Amelia Island chapter wishes to express
our sincere gratitude to the dentists and super-
markets for their donations. The veterans were so
pleased and appreciative of our visit and their gifts.
You helped us to help our veterans.

I VIEWPOINT/FLORIDA ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES



Counties oppose tax amendment


and equitable to all taxpayers as well as at all
levels of government. The Florida
Association of Counties (FAC) believes that
the impacts from top-down property tax relief meas-
ures, plus the Jan. 29 proposed amendment and
potential future legislative actions will significantly
limit local control and the ability of local govern-
ments to provide critical, necessary and quality of
life services.
In 2007 as a result of HB1B, local governments
reduced property tax revenues by $2.3 billion this
fiscal year. Counties contributed $1.53 billion, or
66.5 percent, of the first-year tax relief. Beginning in
2008 and thereafter, counties and other local gov-
ernments will operate under even more dramatic fis-
cal constraints.
Additionally, counties will be required to utilize
higher approval standards when additional property
tax revenue is needed in excess of the new rollback
criteria.
On Jan. 29 the electors of Florida will decide on
several of the major changes proposed by the
Legislature. The proposed constitutional revisions
include: doubling the homestead exemption; allow-
ing for the portability of the Save Our Homes
assessment differential; providing an exemption of
$25,000 for tangible personal property and providing
an assessment cap of 10 percent for non-homestead
property. If adopted, counties will potentially be
budgeting for additional reductions or adjustments,


FAC opposes changes that would
further limit the authority of counties.

making it difficult to implement current or future
projects.
FAC has adopted the following position state-
ments regarding existing, proposed and potential
changes to Florida's property tax structure:
* FAC is concerned that statutory changes made
in 2007 instituted a fundamental shift in Florida's
taxing structure, and the long-term impacts are yet
undetermined.
* FAC is concerned that those changes, along
with the potential adoption of the 2008 constitutional
amendment, leaves the long-term stability of
Florida's primary taxing structure uncertain.
* FAC is concerned that unintended conse-
quences are inevitable when any changes are made
to a complex and critical piece of Florida's financial
infrastructure.
* FAC supports future legislation that preserves
the financial capacity of fiscally constrained counties
in a manner that does not replace or reduce existing
programs and revenues for small rural counties and
that does not divert funds from other counties or
from cities.
* FAC supports future legislation that provides
alternative funding as a method to provide tax relief,


preferably funding that reduces property taxes gen-
erated from the state-controlled required local effort
for K-12 education.
* FAC opposes any future legislation or constitu-
tional changes that would further limit the authority
of counties to raise revenue or lower revenue.
* FAC opposes any preemption of the ability of
counties to implement changes within their commu-
nities.
If the constitutional amendment is approved, the
property tax reforms of 2007 and the then-approved
constitutional changes should be studied and evalu-
ated. Any additional legislative or constitutional
changes should not be placed on the backs of local
governments and the services they provide to
Florida's citizens. As for unfunded mandates FAC
supports an amendment to Florida's constitution
that provides meaningful enhancements to the exist-
ing unfunded mandates provision including, but not
limited to:
* Eliminates exemptions from unfunded man-
date scrutiny;
* Provides greater public notice, legislative
scrutiny and fiscal information;
* Enhances accountability and transparency;
* Preserves self-determination and local fiscal
stewardship;
* Provides a process to resolve conflicts and dis-
putes; and
* Requires legislative support through the devel-
opment of implementing legislation.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Welcome decision
It was a delight to see that the so-called "Marine
Welcome Center" has been put on hold ("City postpones
welcome center," Jan. 11). Hopefully, it will be on hold
indefinitely and eventually deep-sixed.
This is another sad example of the caliber and
level of competence exhibited by the Fernandina Beach
Commissioners. I applaud (Commissioner Ron) Sapp
for stating the obvious, i.e., they don't know what they
want or what they are doing.
The design of this building is also an architectural
nightmare. Is this really how we intend to present our
community? It is difficult to find the right words to
describe it. How about an elevated 1930s metal-faced
diner on stilts? Or maybe just a bit of a futuristic pre-
fabricated metal building warehouse concept. It is a trav-
esty and would not attract people to our island but I
guess it would give them something to talk about.
(City Manager Michael) Czymbor appears to have
much clearer vision.
Russell Jahn

Welcome townspeople
I, for one, am delighted that the city commission put
a hold on the million-dollar welcome center ("City post-
pones welcome center," Jan. 11) scheduled to be built
on our waterfront. I feel like we've welcomed enough
people here already.
Let's think about the townspeople - the people
already here and paying taxes. The city owns a five-acre
parcel on the waterfront south of Brett's. The city
should build us a park. We need grass, trees, picnic
tables and parking. It won't cost a million dollars and
it won't block the view. That's what it's all about - the
view.
Has anybody been to St. Marys, Ga., to see their
park? Aren't we at least as smart as the Georgia peo-
ple? I'm talking a view for everyone - not just a view
for a few.
And if you really want to welcome visiting boaters,
then build some nice bathrooms and showers. That's
the way to say, "Welcome."

Marsh Lakes birds
I drive through Marsh Lakes quite often, and to
see the sight of the roosting birds that Pat Foster-
Turley wrote about in (the Jan. 9) paper is breathtak-
ing.
So many birds you cannot see the trees. It would
be such a shame to have a strip mall there. Not to
mention the traffic coming and going. A1A is already
a major mess, then to add a shopping center there is
just crazy.

Vote Yes on 1
The years have taken their toll on my memory, but
I seem to remember when the homestead exemption
was raised from $10,000 to $25,000 there was some com-
plaint from local government. Somehow, we have over-
come any problems from that increase and have
enjoyed the benefit of that exemption raise for many,
many years.
I do not understand why school officials are oppos-
ing this amendment that clearly states that their taxa-
tion rates will not be affected. I would be surprised if
the underpaid school teachers and staff workers did not
vote for this amendment when they cast their secret bal-
lot, regardless of the opposition.
Anyone who owns or plans to own a home should
definitely vote for this amendment. Even though you
do not get the full $50,000 exemption because of the
school tax, there will be some tax benefit. In addition,
the provision that gives homeowners the right to trans-
fer their "Save our Homes" benefit if they should move
is a great asset.
I am sure that all the small business owners and their
employees, who have been taking a taxation beating the
last few years, will be in favor of this amendment.
While not the answer to all their woes, the $25,000
tangible property tax exemption and the 10 percent cap
on annual assessments has to be a help.
If the passage of this amendment does result in a
monetary shortfall and fees have to be imposed, we will
all have to share in making up the deficit, not just the
home and business owners.

Get educated about pets
While doing volunteer work at the animal shelter
one develops a new perspective on life and death cir-
cumstances and the circle of life.
While rewarding at times, the same volunteer work
can bring a sad and heavy heart when you know you've
tried your best, but your best wasn't good enough
when it comes to saving some of these little furry war-
riors. Yes, the dogs and cats that call these shelters their
homes (not by choice) give it their best to beat some
of the most severe odds.
Here's the deal; the problem is educating the com-
munity when it comes to heartworm and hookworm
and other devastating i.ll-.-. l brought on by human
ignorance or sheer lack or money to do something -
anything!
Sit with a less than a five-pound canine in your arms
and feel a heartbeat that is nearly present, it will put your
own life into perspective in a New York heartbeat. Try
to give whatever energy and love you can provide for
man's best friend, then watch your best friend slip
away. It is devastating because you can see the black
abyss in their little eyes when you know they have
given up the good fight.
I say enough of watching a revolving door spin out
of control at the shelters. I encourage you to get on the
Internet and read articles, take the time to talk with your
veterinarians, gather medical information and facts
and have your pets spayed and neutered; it begins
there. We live in a tropical climate and heartworm and
flea and tick medicine is an absolute must, not a luxu-
ry or something you can just think about. So when you
think about purchasing a pet, please think about how
you are going to be their caregiver for "their" lifelong
time.
I encourage you to please take the time to get edu-
cated on what it takes to get your pets healthy and
stay healthy. I sincerely believe that you will make a
major contribution to the community of Nassau County
and society in general by fostering a spirit of love and
kindness, versus neglect and sheer ignorance.
I cannot say thank you enough to all of the volun-
teers for opening your hearts and homes to fostering
these four-legged, ever forgiving superstars. Keep on
fighting the good fight and I am sure the more educated
we become in our community, the more we will see the
sense of urgency on our doorsteps and the real cycle
of life play out naturally.

Sanctity of human life
Jan. 22 marks the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade
and Doe v. Bolton, which are the two U.S. Supreme
Court rulings that legalized abortion. But the question
is "how much do Americans really know about the
landmark rulings that have been responsible for the
deaths of more than 45 million preborn babies"?
In an effort to help educate the public about Roe,
members from a coalition of pro-family organizations
are asking America the following question: "Do you real-
ly know Roe?"
Concerned Women for America, Focus on the
Family, the Alliance Defense Fund and the Family
Research Council have designed a Web site with a
brief online questionnaire to test your knowledge
about Roe v. Wade. It's a Roe IQ test, and it can be
taken in a few short minutes at RoelQTest.com.
Please visit RoeIQTest.com before Jan. 22 and
answer the question, "Do you really know Roe,"
for yourself. Test your knowledge on abortion legisla-
tion. If you think you know Roe, you may be very sur-
prised!
Justice Harry Blackmun, the author of the 1973
U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision that
affirmed a "right" to abortion under the U.S.
Constitution's right to privacy, recognized the potential
pitfalls, and provided carefully crafted limits on the
use of the procedure. Or did he? Just exactly what
does that ruling, with its 35th anniversary now
approaching, say exactly.
Among the questions is, who is allowed to perform
an abortion: a licensed physician, a nurse practitioner,
a resident assistant or a registered nurse. At what
stage of pregnancy can a woman have an abortion
under Roe v. Wade? Does Roe allow late-term abortions?
What percentage of abortions are performed because
of rape or incest?
Abortion continues to be a hot topic especially in the
upcoming election year. We've all heard the Biblical
admonition, "A man reaps what he sows." With Roe, we
have reaped a culture of death. The human toll Roe has
taken is unfathomable and will only increase until peo-
ple take the time to learn the truth about this compli-
cated and lethal ruling.

A modest proposal
I would like to propose renaming the column
Cup of Joe (Friday News-Leader) to something more
appropriate, like Cup of Dostoyevsky or Bucket of
Blood.
While I've agreed with a point or two that the author
has made over time, I stop way short of ever having
wanted to pass gas in a fellow restaurant patron's ear
for talking too long on his cellphone, or assaulting a
flight attendant I've found offensive. And I'm pretty
sure we're not reading a budding Swiftian satirist, just
a poor bloke who's having problems dealing with the
complexities of urban life and slathering his not-so-
quiet desperation across the opinion pages of the poor
News-Leader.
Certainly, it's not for the impressionable. We ought
to warn kids who cruise your newspaper not to do
that stuff at home.

A camp with consequences


AMANDA BISHOP
Community Newspapers

Ask Glenn Ellison what he does,
and his answer is simply, "I help
parents."
The founder of Camp
Consequence, he and his wife,
Sheila, host parent-child work
camps throughout the year, help-
ing parents and children learn how
to build relationships with one
another.
"We help parents," Ellison said.
"There's a better way and we know
exactly how to change unwanted
behavior, be it anger, disrespect,
poor school performance, you name
it - and we know how to do it with-
out screaming, yelling and argu-
ing."
Ellison said building strong par-
ent-child relationships requires
three essential components: desire,
a plan and support.
Parents prove their desire by
attending a mandatory weekend-
long $150 Empowered Parent con-
ference, where they are given
copies of The Parent Project's
guidebook, based on Ralph Fry's
book, Changing Destructive
Adolescent Behavior The book
guides parents on ways to suc-
cessfully navigate various situations
they may encounter with their chil-
dren, such as if the child lashes out
in anger, strikes the parent, uses
drugs or alcohol or joins a gang.
Once parents attend the confer-


'We help parents.'
CAMP CONSEQUENCE FOUNDER GLENN ELLISON


ence, they and their children can
then attend Camp Consequence at
a cost of $100 per camper. The camp
begins at 8 p.m. on Friday and ends
on Sunday. It's held at Four Creeks
State Forest, which is just east of
Callahan off A1A.
No cell phones, radios, televi-
sions, computers or other forms of
entertainment are permitted at
camp. All children and parents have
to surrender the items for the week-
end. After arriving at camp, parents
and children are forbidden to speak
to one another and the children can-
not communicate with anyone
except the Ellisons or camp volun-
teers.
"They can't talk, they can't sit
down and they have to be respect-
ful," Ellison said, adding that the
children are allowed to sit down
during water breaks, and quickly
learn that he means business and
will not take attitude from any child.
"We prove to them and their parents
they have the ability to control their
tempers."
Further driving home the real-
ization of how luxurious they have
it at home is the children's sleeping
quarters. They experience total soli-
tude, as each camper sleeps alone


in a pup tent that is many yards
away from any other camper.
Volunteers do "fire walks" once per
half hour throughout the evening,
walking by each camper's tent to
make sure they're safe, but aside
from the safety checks, the chil-
dren are completely isolated.
Parents sleep in a separate location,
with many worrying about their
children throughout the night.
'The hardest part is when you
leave your child in that tent in the
woods for the first time," said vol-
unteer C.J. Wright, who participat-
ed in a past camp with her daughter.
During the camp held Nov. 16-18,
parents heard growls throughout
the night and found what they
believed to be panther tracks near-
by. "There's something umbilical
about leaving your child in the
woods when you hear something
growling."
The children also share a five-
gallon bucket set inside a tent as
their ki I ....i n" for the weekend.
The setting is drastically different
from the lifestyles the children are
used to for a reason.
'They're in the middle of 1,000
acres and they have no idea where
they are," Sheila Ellison said. 'The


kids learn that there are conse-
quences for the choices they make
and they learn how good they have
it at home."
While the conditions may seem
harsh, Glenn Ellison is quick to
remind anyone who says so that
the children sleeping alone in the
woods are the same children who
are rude and volatile to their own
parents in regular settings.
The parents, children and vol-
unteers work together throughout
the weekend, clearing brush, notch-
ing trees and performing other for-
est-related duties. The state donates
the space for Camp Consequence's
cabin and, in return, the camp has
the parents and children work
together to help maintain the forest.
"It's good for the state and it's
good for us," Sheila Ellison said.
The camp gives parents and chil-
dren a chance to see just how hard
one another can work to make
things right. One of the main rea-
sons parents visit the camp is an
inability to connect with their kids
in an effective manner.
MNI.i of the parents are par-
enting how they were raised and
that doesn't work today," Ellison
said.
All parents leave the camp with
a plan to follow and are encouraged
to attend weekly support meetings
to keep them focused on creating
positive, effective relationships with
their children.

of it. But two months later, after
receiving five e-mails and two calls
from her 6-year-old daughter's
school within a two-week span, she
decided to give it a shot. She found
the program so beneficial that she
now volunteers her time to help
other parents.
"A lot of times, as a parent, you
get exhausted and you give in
because you're so tired," Thomas
said, adding that the support group
meetings help recharge exhaust-
ed parents, helping them find pos-
itive solutions to dealing with diffi-
cult children.
Michael Bowlus is a successful
attorney, but struggled at parenting
when he first met Glenn Ellison,
founder of Camp Consequence.
"They all said yes sir,' no, sir' at his
office, but not his daughter," Ellison
said.
Bowlus learned to conquer the
art of communication and now joins
Thomas as a mentor to others.
"Anytime you can help somebody
avoid the mistakes you've made,
it's worth it," Bowlus said.

"We deal with good kids making
bad choices," Ellison said, adding
that he started the program
because state-funded programs
don't help children until they've
committed a serious enough
offense to get them entered into
the juvenile justice system. "These
kids could be in the system so
quick it's unbelievable, if parents
don't do something now."
The advantage of running a pri-
vate, non-profit camp is that the
parents invest both time and
money, Ellison said.
"They have to go to work them-
selves and put the sweat equity in,"
he said. "Parents pay for this pro-
gram and we like it that way. Now
they have a vested interest in both
their child and their pocketbooks."
While the parents work with the
children to perform various
forestry work, such as clearing
brush, they are not allowed to
speak to their own children from
the time camp starts on Friday until
it ends on Sunday.

2 arrested for Yulee



gas station robbery


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader

Two Jacksonville men have
been arrested in connection with
the armed robbery of a Yulee gas
station on Dec. 14.
Police believe Eric J. Hayes,
26, and Anthony R Sapp, 20, were
the two men who entered the BP
Station on US 17 about 6:40 p.m.
and demanded money.
One of the men reportedly was
armed with a handgun.
According to a report of the
incident, the store clerk was able
to push a panic alarm button to
summon law enforcement; at that
time, both suspects ran out of the
store. They did not get any
money.
The clerk was able to give
detectives a description of the two
men, and a witness who was
entering the store as the suspects
left was able to provide a descrip-
tion of their vehicle.


Hayes


According to Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves, that
vehicle matches descriptions of
vehicles used in other robberies
that same night; their connection
to other robberies is still under
investigation.
Both men were arrested on
warrants in Jacksonville and are
being held at the Duval County
Jail on $150,004 bond each.
They face charges of attempted
armed robbery and aggravated
assault.

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
Fernandina Beach or 879-2136 in
Callahan, Hilliard and Bryceville.
The "We Tip" program - 1-800-
78CRIME - also allows callers to
leave anonymous tips.
Vehicles recovered
Nassau County deputies found
several stolen all-terrain vehicles
at a Callahan residence Friday
when they arrived at the property
to arrest a resident on Duval
County charges.
One of the vehicles, a 2006 Baja
four-wheeler reported stolen on
Oct. 2, was the first ATV deputies
recognized as stolen. Travis
Bradley Harris, 45, of 85373 Harts
Road, Yulee, told police the ATV


was his. Harris reportedly admitted
he knew the man he purchased
that ATV from was stealing vehi-
cles.
A woman from whom Harris
purchased another ATV is cur-
rently in the Nassau County Jail on
a charge of grand theft of an auto-
mobile.
Harris was arrested for dealing
in stolen property and the vehicles
were impounded.
Another church
vandalized
A Yulee church was vandalized
last week in much the same way
three Fernandina Beach churches
were vandalized at Christmas.
According to the report of the
incident, someone spray-painted
two crosses, upside down, on one
of the outside walls of Blackrock
Baptist Church.
Some time between Dec. 25 and
26, Memorial United Methodist
Church and First Presbyterian
Church, both on Centre Street, and
St. Peter's Episcopal on Atlantic
Avenue had occult symbols -
upside down crosses and penta-
grams - spray-painted on their


doors.
The incidents are under inves-
tigation.
Same-day burglaries
Nine vehicle burglaries and a
possible attempted burglary of a
house were reported on the same
day last week; all the victims lived
on or near Clinch Drive in
Fernandina Beach.
The suspect or suspects bur-
glarized locked and unlocked vehi-
cles alike Jan. 8 - if a vehicle was
locked, the window was broken.
Several items, including cash, CDs
and a handgun, were reported
stolen.
Nothing was missing from
some vehicles.
One woman living in the area
reported someone tried to enter
her house about 6 a.m. that day.
She said she heard a noise and
went downstairs to investigate and
saw that her patio windows had
been pried open and broken, but
the space was not big enough for
someone to crawl through, into
the home.
Witnesses described the sus-
pect as a white male, between 5
feet 5 inches and 5 feet 8 inches


tall, wearing blue jeans and a dark
hooded jacket and carrying a book
bag.
The burglaries are under inves-
tigation.

JOHNNYWOODHOUSE
Community Newspapers
When Special Agent Bob Merta
joined the FBI 22 years ago the
bureau's top priorities were round-
ing up bank robbers and putting
away white-collar criminals. Today,
the FBI's primary mission has
changed from enforcing more than
200 federal statutes to protecting
and defending the nation against
terrorism and foreign intelligence
threats.

The six-week course concluded
at Cecil Field with firearms instruc-
tion and an FBI SWAT team
demonstration.
Among the topics discussed
included international terrorism,
domestic terrorism, counterintel-
ligence, surveillance, organized
crime and the FBI's mission in
Iraq.
Class participants were drawn
from such fields as business, med-
icine, education and media.
Because classified techniques used
in criminal and national security
cases were discussed, participates
had to pass a background check
and receive an interim security
clearance.
The 18-hour course also includ-
ed a guided tour of the Jacksonville
operations center, a polygraph
demonstration and a hands-on ses-


sion with the FBI's firearms train-
ing simulator.
The FBI's Jacksonville field
office is one of 56 in the U.S. and
one of three in Florida. Besides
Folmar, the office hierarchy
includes two assistant special
agents in charge and a number of
supervisory special agents or
squad leaders.
But only 40 percent of all FBI
employees are special agents. The
other 60 percent are employed as
intelligence and financial analysts,
linguists, forensic scientists, infor-
mation technology professionals,
investigative and surveillance spe-
cialists, electronic technicians and
various other administrative and
clerical positions.

fied public accountant and the

QUESTION:You have said
that the natural progres-
sion of a marriage is to
become more distant
rather than more inti-
mate.Why is that true?
DR. DOBSON:
The natural tendency of
everything in the universe is to move
from order to disorder. If you buy a
new car, it will steadily deteriorate from
the day you drive it home.Your body is
slowly aging and dying.Your house has
to be repainted and repaired every few
summers.A business that is not man-
aged carefully will unravel and collapse.
A brick that is placed on a vacant lot
and left there long enough will eventu-
ally turn to dust. Indeed, even the sun
and all the stars are slowly burning
themselves out.We are, in a manner of
speaking, in a dying universe where
everything that is not specifically being
protected and upgraded is in a down-
ward spiral.
The principle which governs this
drift from order to disorder might be
called "the law of disintegration."
(Engineers and scientists sometimes
call it the law of "entropy.") The only
way to postpone or temporarily com-
bat its influence is to invest creative
energy and intelligent design into that
which is to be preserved.
Not so surprisingly, human rela-
tionships also conform to the princi-
ple of disintegration.The natural ten-


Safety institute



issues tips for


driving

The National Traffic Safety
Institute's (NTSI) Florida head-
quarters is responding to last
week's fatal 1-4 crashes with safe-
ty tips for drivers.
The crashes, where at least
four people died and up to 70
cars were involved, resulted in
Florida's major highway link-
ing Tampa and Orlando being
closed.
NTSI suggests the following
driving tips during poor weather
conditions:
* Watch or listen to traffic
reports prior to driving to your
destination. If possible, do not
operate a vehicle until any threat
has passed.
* Turn you headlights on low
beam.
* Fog has its own special
hazards. Roads can have poor
visibility or be wet and slip-
pery.
* Watch vehicles up ahead
and not just the vehicle in front of
you.
* Slow down gradually
and increase your following dis-
tance.
* Keep your vehicle's windows
clean, making sure you have good
tires and ensure your lights and

dency is for husbands and wives to drift
away from each other unless they work
at staying together.To provide another
analogy, it is as though they were sitting
in separate rowboats on a choppy lake.
If they don't paddle vigorously to stay
in the same neighborhood, one will drift
to the north of the lake and the other
to the south.That is exactly what hap-
pens when marital partners get too
busy or distracted to maintain their
love. If they don't take the time for
romantic activities and experiences
that draw them together, something
precious begins to slip away. It doesn't
have to be that way, of course, but the
currents of life will separate them unless
efforts are made to remain together.
I wish every newly married couple
knew about the law of disintegration
and would actively protect their rela-
tionship from it.
QUESTION: Some educators have
said we should eliminate report cards and aca-
demic marks. Do you think this is a good idea?
DR. DOBSON: No, I believe aca-
demic marks are valuable for students in the


third grade or higher. They reinforce and
reward the child who has achieved in school
and as a nudge to the youngster who hasn't.
It is important, though, that grades be used
properly.They have the power to create or
to destroy motivation.
Through the elementary years, I've
always felt that a child's grades should be
based on what he does with what he has. In
other words, I think we should grade accord-
ing to ability.A slow child should be able to
succeed in school just as certainly as a gift-
ed youngster. If he struggles and sweats to
achieve, he should somehow be rewarded -
- even if his work falls short of an absolute
standard. By the same token, gifted children
should not be given A's just because they
are smart enough to excel without working.
Again,the primary purpose in grading
in the elementary school years should be to
reward academic effort.
However, as the student goes into high
school, the purpose of grading shifts. Those
who take college preparatory courses must
be graded on an absolute standard.An "A" in
chemistry or calculus is accepted by college
admission boards as a symbol of excellence,
and secondary teachers must preserve that
meaning. Students with lesser academic skill
need not take those difficult courses.
To repeat, marks for children can be the
teacher's most important motivational tool,
provided they are used correctly.Therefore,
the recommendation that schools eliminate
grading is a move away from discipline in the
classroom..

Jags'mistakes

aside, Patriots

werejust better
f David Garrard didn't
fumble early and throw a
late interception,
Jacksonville might have
beaten New England in the
second round of the NFL play-
offs Saturday night. Yeah, and
if my Uncle Joe wore hair
curlers and a mud pack to
bed, I might call him "Aunt
Josephine."
Take nothing away from
the Jags, who, outside of the
above-mentioned mistakes,
played like champions.
Holding the vaunted Patriots
offense to just 14 first-half
points was a feat that the
young Jacksonville defense
should be able to build upon.
But was there any question
who had the better team and,
namely, the better offense? At
no time, other than brief span
between Jacksonville's open-
ing-possession touchdown
and the first play of New
England's first offensive pos-
session, did I get the feeling
that the Jaguars had the upper
hand.

Hey, ifyou've got to
lose, you might as
well lose to the best.

Meanwhile, as Tom Brady
completed what seemed like
his 99th consecutive pass (the
dude went 26-of-28 and both
incomplete passes hit the
receivers in the hands), it
became crystal clear that
Jacksonville was up against
what might go down as the
best offensive team in the his-
tory of the NFL. Hey, if you've
got to lose, you might as well
lose to the best.
So, while Garrard's fumble
and interception made it easi-
er for New England to contin-
ue chasing history, I think the
mistakes were probably
inconsequential. Because I
believe Brady might be 650-
for-653 if the teams were still
going at it as we speak...
Ohio State DE Vernon
Gholston has decided to forgo
his senior year with the
Buckeyes and enter the NFL
draft. Who can blame him? All
he would have to look for-
ward to next year is a regular
season full of false hope,
brought on by an undefeated
conference record, followed
by another shellacking in a
BCS game ...
Did you hear where
Arkansas RB Darren
McFadden was briefly hand-
cuffed after an altercation out-
side of, get this, a piano bar?
What's next, college football
players brawling backstage on
Broadway? ...
The University of Florida
basketball team is 2-0 in
Southeastern Conference
play, despite having to replace
all five starters and its first
man off the bench from last
season's two-time national
championship squad. The
quick start is indeed promis-
ing and probably evokes
memories of a certain group
of no-name sophomores who
brought Florida its first
national championship.
But, back to reality, this
season should be considered
a raging success if Head
Coach Billy Donovan and his
boys even qualify for the Big
Dance. A roster made up of
seven freshmen, three sopho-
mores, two juniors and no
seniors doesn't bode well for a
deep tournament run.
With Donovan's coaching
acumen, however, fans can
expect the flashes of brilliance
they're seeing from a young
team to turn into a picture of
consistency. After all, those
seven freshmen will turn into
seven sophomores next sea-
son.

Hornets denied wins against Episcopal, Ribault


BETH JONES
News Leader

The Hornets came up empty-
handed last week, losing to Episco-
pal 64-59 Thursday and to Ribault
84-60 Friday.
"It marks the first winless week
we've had all season," said Robert
Barrow, Yulee High School boys
basketball coach. "I think we might
have looked past Episcopal a little
bit on Thursday, came out slug-
gish and, before we knew it, we
were in a dogfight.
"I give all the credit to Episcopal
for capitalizing on our complacen-
cy and we'll make sure we don't
make the same mistake in the
future. That was the game we
hoped to win, which would have
secured one of the top two district
seeds going in to the tough
matchup Friday night with Ribault.
"As for the Ribault game, we
played with them for two and a half
quarters (only down by 11 halfway
through the third quarter) and
then our legs just went out on us.
They then proceeded to make a
run on us that we were never able
to recover from.
"When you play a team with
depth like Ribault, it's to your ben-
efit to have fresh bodies and legs.
I think the wear and tear from the
Episcopal game the night before
played a major factor late in the
Ribault game against their constant
pressure.
"It's good we were able to win a
number of early district games,
allowing us to still maintain a
respectable record and standing
going in to the district tournament
in a few weeks. We'll get back to
work this week and get ready for
the Fernandina game this Friday."
The Fernandina Beach High
School Pirates fell to Bishop Kenny
67-56 Friday. The score was knot-
ted at 18-18 after a quarter and the
BK Crusaders were up by one at
halftime, 30-29. The third quarter
was the difference with Kenny
outscoring the Pirates 20-10.
Three Pirates were in double
figures. Jake Brogdon led with 16
points, Trey Kublbock scored 13
and Patrick Garvin chipped in 11.
Kublbock had five rebounds and a
steal, Garvin had four rebounds
and a steal and Carlos Holcey had
six rebounds, seven assists and
two steals to go along with his eight
points.

Middleburg Tuesday, the Hornets
are idle until Friday's matchup at
FBHS. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m., fol-
lowing the junior varsity game at 6
p.m.
The FBHS Lady Pirates pushed
their record to 13-4 with wins over
West Nassau Thursday and Baker
County Friday.
The Lady Pirates walloped West
Nassau 62-32.
"The girls played great from
tipoff to buzzer," FBHS Coach
Mike Landtroop said.
Haley Tan had a double-double
with 26 points and 10 rebounds to
steer the Lady Pirates.


The FBMS girls soc-
cer team hosted
Green Cove Springs
Friday at Pirate

title. FBMS edged

"The rest of the team kept
knocking their shots down all
game," Landtroop said. 'The girls
kept the defensive pressure up for
all four quarters and did not let
West Nassau get off uncontested
shots."
India Johnson had 11 points and
five rebounds and she and Tan had
three steals each. Ebony Peterson
had nine points and four steals.
Whitney Small also had four steals.
On Friday, the FBHS girls
edged Baker County 41-39.
"Two great games Friday
night," Landtroop said. 'The jun-
ior varsity was coming off a very


close victory the previous night
versus West Nassau and played
Baker County close all game long,
taking the lead in the last minute of
the game.
'The varsity game was probably
one of the most exciting games to
watch and coach the whole sea-
son. The girls told me that we
would beat Baker County and they
took care of business.
"With 40 seconds to go and a
tied game, I never had my doubts
that these girls would pull it out.
This is Pirate country.
"Haley Tan drove to the hole
with 1 seconds left and scored on


a game-winning layup attempt
against their big girl. They came
right back down the court, but we
would not be denied this win and
we held onto our lead."
Johnson was the leading scorer
for FBHS with 19 points. She also
pulled down five rebounds. Team-
mate Brittany Schetrompf had nine
points and three rebounds. Tan
was the top rebounder with nine
and Peterson had seven.
The Lady Pirates traveled to
Providence Monday and to Trinity
Tuesday. They play at Baldwin
Thursday before returning home
to host Yulee Jan. 22.


FBMS girls win


conference title

BETH JONES
News Leader

The Fernandina Beach Middle Schoolgirls soccer
team blanked Green Cove Springs 2-0 to clinch the
Florida Crown Conference title Friday, capping a per-
fect season for the 8-0 Lady Pirates.
Savannah Young and Jessica Gergenti scored the
goals and keeper Perrin Bille recorded two saves.
"What a game this was," FBMS Coach Carolyn
Sauls said. "We probably maintained ball possession
for about 75 percent of the game and took advantage
of all opportunities to take shots on the goal. Green
Cove's keeper was quick and wasn't letting anything
by."
The game was scoreless in the first half, but FBMS
broke the stalemate in the second half.
"At halftime, I told the girls to keep playing tough
and making those shots at goal and that it was just a
matter of time before one would make it in," Sauls said.
"Sure enough, about 10 minutes into second half, the
first goal was scored by Savannah. The team's ener-
gy exploded and we then scored another goal about
seven minutes later by Jessica. There was no stopping
them.
'This group of girls is now officially being dubbed
The Dream Team.' It's been an exciting season from
day one. They have managed to go undefeated in the
season, won the county tournament and now have
taken the FCC championship. It just doesn't get any
better than this.
"Eleven of the girls are eighth graders and I have
had the honor and privilege of watching them grow
as team and as individuals. The leadership, commit-
ment and talent these girls have are unbelievable.
Though I'm losing a good bit of the team to the high
school next year, I still have a good handful of girls
remaining to fill in the gap the eighth graders are
leaving and keeping the soccer program at FBMS
running strong and combative.
"A huge thank you to all the players and their par-
ents for an exciting and memorable season."


as 'The Oh-Fours." Maybe
this year's group will one day
be tabbed 'The Seven-oh-
Sevens."

Volunteers, runners wanted


for inaugural 26.2 with Donna


The Donna Hicken Foundation is calling all run-
ners and volunteers to register to participate in the
26.2 with Donna, The National Marathon to Fight
Breast Cancer, on Feb. 17.
Runners will enjoy panoramic views of the
Intracoastal Waterway and tidal marshland and mean-
der through the unique beach communities of
Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach and Atlantic
Beach. Runners and volunteers can show their sup-
port by registering online today. Online race regis-
tration will remain open until Feb. 14.
If you're not into running but still want to do your
part to finish breast cancer, there are many ways to
be a part. This weekend-long event needs enthusiastic
volunteers to help with the marathon, half-marathon,
expo, pasta party and more. In addition, if you're a
cheerleader, play in a band, belong to a community
organization or have any other special talents, then
come out and showcase your ability and spirit as a
curb crew along the race route.
Boaters can be a part of the fight against breast
cancer. A 2.5-mile stretch of the course will detour onto
the beautiful hard-packed sand of Jacksonville Beach.
Show your support by decorating your boat in pink
and anchoring up along the Intracoastal or the 2.5-mile
beach portion of the race route. The color pink rep-
resents breast cancer awareness and acts as a sign of
encouragement and hope all around the world.
The inaugural run of the 26.2 with Donna, The
National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer, brings in
$65,000 to award to marathon winners for inaugural
runs. An open prize purse of $60,000 is available for
the marathon and will be awarded in the following cat-
egories: First breast cancer survivor, open, masters


and one local winner. Local winner must be a resident
of Florida counties Duval, Clay, Flagler, St. Johns,
Nassau, Putnam, Bradford, Union, Columbia and
Baker and Georgia counties Ware, Charlton, Camden,
Brantley, Pierce and Glynn.
The prize purse for the 26.2 with Donna, The
National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer, is funded
by donations from sponsors of the marathon and
brings one of the largest prize purses Jacksonville has
seen. In support of the 2008 United States Women's
Olympic Marathon Trials to be held April 20 in Boston,
a prize of $5,000 will be devoted to a winning female
United States citizen competing in the half marathon.
For further rules and eligibility requirements for
prize money, contact Keith Brantly at keith@brantly
running.com.
The inaugural race will begin at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 17
at the Mayo Clinic campus on San Pablo Road. The
starting lineup will be from Davis Parkway to Butler
Boulevard. The course will be open for seven hours
for both the marathon and half-marathon runners.
The breast cancer marathon has registered-run-
ners from six countries, with 44 U.S. states repre-
sented and there is no registration cap. Each registrant
who finishes the race will receive a one-of-a-kind
medal to commemorate his or her participation in the
inaugural run of the nation's only marathon dedicat-
ed solely to this cause.
One hundred percent of runners' registration fees
and any monies they choose to raise goes directly to
breast cancer research and care through Mayo Clinic
and The Donna Hicken Foundation.

1 "When it's breezy swing easy."
How many golfers have heard this
old saying when it's windy out-
side? Let's get into just a little bit
more detail about this. What will
swinging easy do for you when the
wind is up? For one thing, it
increases the chances of solid contact creating a
more penetrating ball flight. For another thing, it
compresses the ball less causing it to spin less,
which also creates a more penetrating ball flight.
Notice the theme. A solidly struck ball with a more
penetrating trajectory is less affected by the wind.
Swinging harder when the wind is blowing is a
powerful instinct to overcome. But if you can dis-
cipline yourself to use more club and swing easi-
er it will have a wonderful effect on your ability to
control the ball in the wind.


The Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman has been taken off the airfor suggesting Tiger Woods' -_.
opponents might have to "lynch him in a back alley". Tilghman made the comments on
air during coverage of the PGA Tour season-opening event in Hawaii last week. While jok-. .
ing with analyst Nick Faldo about Woods, Tilghman said any golfer trying to test Woods "might t -
have to lynch him in a back alley". The Golf Channel suspended Tilghman for two weeks, but \
Woods isn't worried about the comment. Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent, issued a statement
declaring the uproar was not a major concem. "This story is a non-issue," Steinberg said. "Tiger and Kelly are
friends and Tiger has a great deal of respect for Kelly. Regardless of the choice of words used we know unequiv-
ocally that there was no ill-intent in her comments. This story is a non-issue in our eyes. Case closed." Tilghman
said in a statement that she meant no insult to Woods or offense to viewers.

OUTDOORS


A winter's troll


king mackerel has
been red hot and
stone cold offshore
of Amelia Island, particularly at
TW fish haven.
"I heard through the
grapevine that one commercial
kingfish boat hammered the
kings recently at TW fish haven,"
Jacksonville's George Savitz said.
"The next day my son, Chris, and
I trolled for kings at the very
same ledge and caught only
three small kings. But that's the
way winter kingfishing is; one
day they are there and the next
day they have migrated to a dif-
ferent location. I will say one
thing, though. When you locate
winter king mackerel, they are
schooled up in awesome num-
bers and very easy to catch."
Savitz commercially kingfish-
es with his son, Chris, mostly
during the winter fishing season
and for good reason. Kingfish
hold in giant schools off
Northeast Florida during the
colder months of December,
January and February in water
depths from 70-100 feet.
Commercial king mackerel
fishermen often use drone
spoons rigged to 20- to 30-foot
lengths of 100-pound mono lead-
ers. The shock leader is then
attached to a number three or
number four planner to get the
spoon down to water depths of
15-30 feet, which is also deter-
mined by how far the planner is
trolled from the boat. The plan-
ner is then tied to a heavy cord
and attached to the transom of
the boat. Once a king mackerel
strikes the spoon, the commer-
cial king mackerel fisherman
hand-lines the kingfish into the
boat. A third planner is also
rigged in similar fashion, except
the planner is tied to 80-pound
dacron fishing line, which is
spooled on a electric fishing reel
and rod.
"We typically fish the electric
reel and rod spoon way back in
our trolling spread," Savitz said.
"Once a king strikes the spoon, I
simply leave the rod in the rod
holder and let the boat fight the
kingfish. The electric reel and
rod does most of the work."
As you can see, commercial
kingfish boats are set up to catch


a lot of king-
fish and in a
short period
of time. On a
good day, a
commercial
kingfish boat
may catch
close to 100
winter king
Terry Lacoss mackerel.
Savitz
"*s c - also men-
OUTDOORS tioned that
when they
fished at TW reef a few days
after the big kingfish bite, they
caught a lot of bonito. Seems like
the bait was still there, but the
massive school of kingfish had
left.
Winter trolling off Amelia
Island can produce some of the
best sport fishing of the season
when the conditions are right.
During a past winter trolling sea-
son, a giant school of winter
kings called FA reef their winter
home for the entire month of
December and the first portion
of the month of January. Many of
the kings weighed over the 20-
pound mark and were not your
typical schooling kingfish.
Winter trolling produces
cobia, dolphin, bonito, wahoo,
blackfin tuna, kingfish, amber-
jack and toothy barracuda. Most
of these game fish can be caught
while trolling dead cigar min-
nows or ballyhoo.
Another popular winter
trolling hot spot is Georgia's R-5
Navy Tower, which is located
some 35 miles northeast of the
St. Marys inlet. The water
depths range from 80-90 feet and
gradually drop off to over 100
feet as fishermen troll in an east-
erly direction.
The brightly-colored Navy
tower attracts large pods of bait-
fish and offers several small,
nearby rock ledges, deep depres-
sions and hard bottoms. And in
cases when winter trolling slows
down at the R-5 Navy tower,
sports fishermen can make an
additional five mile run east to
the Brunswick 40-mile bottom
and typically enjoy excellent win-
ter trolling action.
Locating warm water temper-
atures is also very critical to the
success of winter trolling boats.

Be sure to check water tempera-
tures before you make a long off-
shore run - on the Internet and
with local sports fishermen.
A water temperature change
of one degree can make a huge
difference in locating active
trolling species. Always troll on
the warm side of the temperature

New fees for licenses
A new fee schedule is in effect for all recre-
ational 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 licenses go back into
conserving fish and wildlife resources and benefit
anglers and hunters. The increased revenue,
expected to total $10 million annually within four
years, will not create new programs, but will offset
a predicted $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
regulations regarding hunting and fishing in the
state as well as promoting boating safety and
access.
FWC presented its findings to the Legislature
late last year. The projected deficit would leave
revenue streams for marine fisheries, freshwater
fisheries and hunting in jeopardy.
Purchase recreational licenses 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 collectors' offices, addi-
tional processing fees will be applied.

Carlton Walden of Fernandina Beach plays Friday in the "Talent Explosion" competition.


Local guitarist third in talent show


For the News Leader


Fernandina Beach resident
and local golf professional Carlton
Walden won third prize in
Oceanside Rotary's first "Talent
Explosion" competition Friday
night.
Walden performed Jimmy
Buffett's "Come Monday," accom-
panying himself on the guitar,
before an audience of approxi-
mately 300 at FCCJ's Nathan H.
Wilson Center for the Arts.
"I have never performed pub-
licly before," Walden said in a
press release, adding he was
pleasantly surprised with the
judges' decision. "There were
extremely talented individuals in
this competition. I was very nerv-


ous but am aware of all the great
things that Rotary accomplishes
and was happy to be able to sup-
port Oceanside's effort."
Walden's 91-year-old father and
87-year-old mother, also residents
of Fernandina Beach, were in the
audience to cheer him on. The
competition began as with an
online voting process. Entrants
videotaped their performances,
uploaded them to the Rotary
Club's website, and then encour-
aged "fans" to vote at $1 per vote.
The finalists with the highest
number of votes by Dec. 15 were
then invited to perform live before
a panel of celebrity judges.
Arthur Crofton was the
evening's master of ceremonies
and the celebrity judge's panel


comprised Robbie Rose, Mary
Anne Christensen and Shannon
Ogden.
First place winner was Julianne
McCarthy, who dazzled the audi-
ence with a stellar rendition of
'Think of Me" from Phantom of
the Opera. Grace Nichols placed
second with her charming per-
formance of "Taylor the Latte
Boy" by Kristen Chenoweth. The
top three finalists were presented
with cash awards of $2,500, $1,500
and $1,000.
All funds raised by the com-
petition will benefit Oceanside
Rotary Charities. For more infor-
mation or to view the online per-
formances, visit www.ocean

CATS ANGELS

Hi everybody! My name is Chrissy
and I'm here to tell you that I want a
home of my own. I am currently
residing at the Cats Angels Adoption
Center and while it is a cool place, I
have been here too long in my opin-
ion. I know there are some of the
adult cats who have been here much
longer than me, but hey, I'm a junior
girl and quite good looking! I have
gone to several offsite adoptions that
the Cats Angels volunteers so kindly
transport us to and from. As a matter
of fact, 15 cats and kittens found new homes this past week
but I wasn't one of them! Stop by the adoption center at 709
S. Eighth St. Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to see
me. I am spayed and current on my vaccinations.
The Thrift Store is open Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to
5 p.m. and gladly accepts donations during business hours.
We have many great items, including new and used books, for
your shopping pleasure. We are always looking for volunteers,
too. Call 321-2267 if you can spare a few hours a week.
Spring will be here soon! Let's all do our part to make this
spring a better one by spaying and neutering the animals in
your care before they produce a litter. Call Spay Nassau at
(904) 425-0005. If you don't qualify, call Cats Angels at 321-
2267 to discuss options.
