Utility crew /7 A


relocates nest

for ospreys
PAT FOSTER-TURLEY
For the News Leader
Florida Public Utilities Co. staff
constructed a new osprey nesting
platform on North 14th Street last
week, just in time for nesting sea-
son.
Wildlife observers noticed Jan.
7 that the platform on a power pole
on North 14th Street had col-
lapsed. They placed a call to Mark
Cutshaw, general manager of FPU,
to alert him.
This osprey nesting platform
has been used by a pair of ospreys
to raise their
Virtuous brood each year
for nearly a
VUltUreS, decade. With
8A osprey nesting
season approach-
ing, the loss of this
platform would be a setback for
these federally and state protected
birds and Amelia Island residents
who enjoy watching them.
On Jan. 15, FPU staff complet-
ed the new osprey nesting plat-
form on a new 45-foot-tall pole.
The residue from the active
nest has jeopardized the integrity
of the power supply on the sup-
porting pole so FPU installed a
new pole 20 feet from the power
pole for exclusive use of the
osprey.
A work crew headed by fore-
man Steve Taylor carefully moved
the old nesting material from the
original nest to the new platform to
make it familiar to the returning
osprey, then removed the old
nesting platform to avoid tempta-
tion.
While the workers were
engaged in this project, Taylor said
many passersby slowed and shout-
ed encouragement or gave a
thumbs-up signal showing appre-
ciation for this project. A couple
had a different take, however, he
said, with comments such as, "So
this is where my dollars are
going," in response to new utility
rate hikes.
Cutshaw said FPU was pleased
to help the osprey and grateful to
receive input from local zoologists
in the process. As far as cost to
the public goes, Cutshaw said,
'The money spent on this project
was minute compared to the cost
of fixing outages on weekends and
at night that would occur other-
wise if the nest platform on the

location to reduce damage to the utility pole. Top, an osprey approaches the old nest in 2007.


pole continued to leak material
onto the electric lines and insula-
tors. The solution of a new nesting
pole for the ospreys is good for
the ospreys, saves money for our
customers and is good for the com-
munity."
The original osprey nesting
platform, according to Taylor, who
was part of the original crew
installing it, was built about 10
years ago. At that time, the ospreys


had already noticed this pole and
were attempting to build a nest in
and among the wires. The plat-
form was installed above the wires
to save the electrical system.
A pair of osprey - the same or
different ones, no one knows -
has been using this platform each
year since.
One year a pair of great horned
owls fledged their own young from
this nest early in the season before


the ospreys again moved in to
raise their own family.
The osprey nesting pole is
located on North 14th Street just
beyond the bridge over Egans
Creek on the road to the county's
north end boat ramp. Osprey often
begin nesting in late January, and
people are encouraged to watch
this nest and see for themselves
how the osprey adapt to their new
digs.

VICTIM



Pumping


gas when


robber


strikes

SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Allison Dillingham was just
pumping gas about 11:30 a.m. Jan.
17; she had her one-year-old daugh-
ter in her SUV, and she was paying
at the pump, so she saw no need to
lock her doors.
It wasn't until her daughter
started crying that she looked into
her vehicle and saw a man going
through one of her bags.
"When I saw him, I started
screaming that somebody was
stealing my purse," she said.
Her screams scared the man
away before he took anything, but
another victim was not as lucky.
Three people heard her screams
and came to help, contacting 911 on
their cell phones.
A man fitting the description
Dillingham gave, and driving a
vehicle fitting her description, was
successful in the same scheme just
moments earlier at Kangaroo
Express on A1A at Lewis Street on
the southern end of the island.
As the victim, a Fernandina
Beach woman, was pumping gas
into her vehicle the man drove up
beside her, went through an
unlocked door into her front seat
and took her purse, which con-
tained several credit cards.
Police believe the same man
committed both crimes.
The suspect reportedly was
caught on the Kangaroo Express
gas station's surveillance camera;
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said detectives are inves-
tigating the incidents. No one has
been arrested yet.
Dillingham said it had never
occurred to her to lock her vehicle
when she was just pumping gas.
"Especially because I'm actual-
ly there, touching my car, I was lit-
erally standing at my vehicle," she
said. "I couldn't believe it, you just
don't think those kinds of crimes

FOR THE RECORD

Harry Ira Patrick, who plead-
ed guilty Jan. 17 to the murder of
his next-door neighbor, Betty
Anderson, was mentally impaired
because of being struck by a car
while he was a pedestrian,
according to his sister. His sister
said she lived with her brother in
their Stanley Drive home, though
she was sometimes away to care
for an ill friend, prior to his arrest.
She said the Andersons and
Patricks were close friends for
decades, and it was not uncom-
mon for Betty Anderson to bring
food over to their house. Betty
Anderson also was paying her
recently unemployed brother to
pressure-wash her house, his sis-
ter said. While acknowledging
his guilty plea, she objected to
the characterization of her broth-
er in a front-page story Jan. 18.
There were minor factual errors
in that story that could have rein-
forced an inaccurate characteri-
zation.
* * *
The principal of Yulee
Primary School is MaryAnn
Bennett. The name of the prin-
cipal was incorrectly stated in a
front page story Friday about a
school bus accident.

The News-Leader strives for
accuracy. We will promptly cor-
rect allfactual errors. Please noti-
fy the editor of errors at mpar-
nell@fbnewsleader.com or call
(904) 261-3696.


Mrs. Dickens also leaves behind, her broth-
er-in-law, Skip Skipper, sister-in-law, Ann
Lannon, and her very dear lifelong friends, Dr.
Bill and Lenie Rodeffer.
Funeral services were held at 10:30 a.m. on
Tuesday from Memorial United Methodist
Church, with the Rev. Brett Opalinski officiat-
ing.
Mrs. Dickens will be laid to rest next to her
husband, Dr. Bailey Dickens, in their family
section of Bosque Bello Cemetery. Pallbearers
will be her seven grandsons.
The family invites guests and friends to visit
from 5-7 p.m. on Monday at the funeral home.

Robert "Bob" Christian Gibson
Robert "Bob" Christian Gibson of
Greenwich Conn., age 77, died at Greenwich
Hospital on Jan. 17 after a long and courageous
battle with Chronic
Obstructive Pulmonary
Disease.
Bob was a legend and pio-
neer in the paper industry,
with roles in sales, marketing -.
and production. Many of his
innovations and contributions
included strippable wallpaper,
designs for mass produced
paper cups and non-stick bubble-gum paper.
He worked with notable industry giants
such as St. Regis Paper Company, International
Paper and Central National-Gottesman. He was
executive vice-president and co-owner of
Jacksonville Kraft Paper, and even after retire-
ment he could not resist remaining in "the
game" as an independent broker until his very
last days.
Bob was born in Ozone Park, N.Y., on Sept.
23, 1930, to the late Frank I. Gibson and Lillian
Hansen Ryan. He spent much of his childhood
traveling across the breadth of America, attend-
ing 17 different schools in eight different states
before graduating from Trenton High School
with honors in Trenton, N.J.
He attended Purdue University in Lafayette,
Ind., where he received his BS and MS in indus-
trial engineering and economics. Bob could still
be found 55-plus years later cheering his
"Boilermakers," a testimony to his tremendous
loyalty.
Bob served honorably from 1953 to 1955 in
the Army Corps of Engineers, and was sta-
tioned in both Korea and Japan. He leveraged


his time in Asia working within the paper indus-
try, and participating in post-war business devel-
opment.
Bob was a devoted father and grandfather.
He is survived by five children and six grand-
children: Gib Gibson, his wife Lisa, and their
children Jack and Wyatt of Old Greenwich,
Conn.; Paula Zipkis, her husband Richard, and
their children Alexandra, Zachary and Danielle
of Weston, Conn.; Peter Gibson and his daugh-
ter Stella of Los Angeles; Jeffrey Gibson and his
wife Alicia of Greenwich, Conn.; and Michael
Patrick Gibson of Cambridge, Mass.
He also leaves behind his former wife, and
dearest friend, Paula Corrado, and her hus-
band, John; sisters Nilda Lindsay of Fort Myers,
Patricia McGeehan of Beach Haven, NJ., and
Maureen Price of Pensacola; brothers James
Ryan of West Deptford, NJ., and William Ryan
of Hamilton Square, N.J.
He is pre-deceased by his brothers Patrick
Ryan of Pensacola and Paul Ryan of Gastonia,
N.C., and sister Kathleen Peligrino of Beach
Haven, NJ.
Awake was held on Monday, Jan. 21, from
4-8 p.m. at Leo P Gallagher & Sons on 31 Arch
St. in Greenwich, Conn. Funeral services were
held on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 10 a.m. at St. Mary's
Catholic Church on Greenwich Ave.
Bob will be sadly missed by all who knew
and loved him. His preference is for all of you,
wherever you may be, to have his favorite toast,
a simple "Cheers."

Robert Harris Hart
Robert Harris Hart died Jan. 2, 2008, in
Madison. A former resident for 25 years, Mr.
Hart ran an engineering company and worked
at Smurfit-Stone.
"Nothing is more annoying than a good
example," said Mark Twain. In that regard,
Bob Hart was a most annoying man. He was a
good son, a good sibling, a good student, a
good employee, a good employer, a good hus-
band, a good father and a good friend. He was
a good and avid fisherman. He was, however,
a bad follower. Of local interest, he designed and
built the unique wood building near the corner
of Manucy Road and First Coast Highway. He
was a true and capable man of many talents and
squandered very few of them. Grief is the price
we pay for having known a good person well.

Jessie Pinkie Ransom
Mrs. Jessie Pinkie Ransom 84, quietly
passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2008.
Born on Aug. 8, 1923, in Franklintown to the
late Josephine and Hayes Stewart Jr., Jessie
spent most of her life in Fernandina Beach and
within a few miles of Franklintown. In her early
years, Jessie worked in a nearby oyster facto-
ry and as a homemaker. She was a loving moth-
er, sister, aunt and granny.
After retiring, she loved spending time with
her family and watching "The Price Is Right"
game show. Jessie always gave her best to
everything she did and kept a pure heart. She
devoted her life to Christ and through her faith,
prayers and trust in GOD, Jessie always found
a great source of strength and joy.
She left this Earth knowing that she was
loved dearly here on Earth and that an even
greater love and comfort awaited her with the
Lord whom she loves wholeheartedly.
Jessie touched the lives of many and will
be missed, but would not want us to weep for
her. Who she was and what she did will always
echo in our hearts. "Her life was a blessing, her
memory will always be a treasure."
Left behind to cherish her memory are her
son, Julius; granddaughters, Sheila and Lisa;
grandson, Tim; grandson-in-law, Alfonso; as
well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Jessie was predeceased by her daughter,
Elizabeth, and husband, Walter.
Friends viewed the remains from noon until
6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18, 2008, in the Mary L.
Breaker Chapel of Huff and Battise Funeral
Home and on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until the
hour of service. A celebration of Jessie's life was
held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Trinity United

Grim day at Animal Control:



distemper, rumors rampant


SIAN PERRY
News Leader

Thursday was a grim day at
Nassau County Animal Control. A
distemper outbreak led to the
death of 32 dogs, said Interim
Director Rhett Holden-Dodge -
and nightmares for the staff that
worked to contain the highly con-
tagious airborne illness that caus-
es severe upper respiratory infec-
tions and eventually seizures.
To make mat-
7 ~ters worse, said
Holden-Dodge,
as they ventilat-
ed infected
rooms and
scrubbed top to
bottom with
Holden- bleach in a bid to
Dodge save the remain-
ing dogs from
infection, people
began to call and stop by Friday,
angry about what they heard was
a killing spree.
The only person to offer solace
was Dave Coyle, president of the
Nassau Humane Society, said
Holden-Dodge.
"This job is bad enough without
people spreading rumors," he said,
visibly upset Friday. "Death is bad
enough around here. ... I know
how sick I was to my stomach and
I know that (Animal Control
Officer) Patsy Bryant called me at
7 a.m. (Friday) telling me she had
had nightmares. That's the prob-
lem with being on the soft end of
the needle. The people who pull
this gossiping garbage have no
idea what we go through on a good
day..."
Holden-Dodge won't know for
weeks whether the distemper has
been contained - if more dogs
show symptoms, "then we've got
some brutal decisions to make,"
he said, citing three local veteri-
narians he consulted on the out-
break before the dogs were euth-
anized.
Such is the reality at Nassau
County Animal Control these days,
which has come under intense
scrutiny after former director
Brenda Rothwell was removed
Oct. 31 amidst allegations of gross
mismanagement.
"People ought to be working
together to clear the rocks out of
the road. I'm willing to be respon-
sible about what goes on during
my watch - but if you are going to
criticize, you better get your facts
straight," said Holden-Dodge, who
is acting as interim director for a
nominal salary of $1,000 a month
until a replacement is found.
So far seven people have
applied for the position, but the
job is on hold until Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves announces whether he

Scarlett, an abandoned daschund healing from a badly bro-
ken pelvis, luckily was isolated due to her injuries when a
distemper outbreak infected 32 dogs at Nassau County
Animal Control. They were killed Thursday on the advice of
three area vets, who said the shelter could otherwise lose its
entire dog population, said Rhett Holden-Dodge, interim
director.


will take over administration of the
facility. Seagraves is meeting with
commissioners Monday night in
the James S. Page Governmental
Complex in Yulee.
Should he take on the job his
options so far include:
* Contracting out the entire
operation - Rescuing Animals in
Nassau of Callahan has submitted
a proposal priced around $608,000;
* Keeping it in-house and hir-
ing a director to oversee day-to-
day functions
* Hiring a director to oversee
Yulee and two satellite shelters -
one on the West Side run by RAIN,
and one in Fernandina Beach run
by the Nassau Humane Society -
as proposed by Coyle of the NHS.
Chili Pope, county human
resources director, earlier charac-
terized the list of candidates for
director as "strong."
They include a variety of back-
grounds, from former animal con-
trol directors and zookeepers to a
teacher, a builder/contractor, a
hospitality worker and a security
chief. Three list past military serv-
ice and one is a Vietnam veteran.


One applicant worked previously in
both Code Enforcement and
Animal Control. Among their spe-
cialties they list everything from
wildlife conservation, including
endangered animals overseas, to
managing multimillion-dollar budg-
ets, livestock farming and exten-
sive volunteer experience with
local animal advocate groups.
The job was advertised at a
salary of $44,233 plus benefits and
will remain open until filled, if that
is what the sheriff decides to do,
said Pope.
In the meantime the county
commission approved hiring two
additional shelter technicians and
an Animal Control officer to fill an
existing vacancy. The new officer
was slated to start Tuesday, said
Holden-Dodge, and the technicians
are in the hiring process.
Seagraves is supportive of the
hiring plan, said County
Coordinator Ed Sealover last
month, noting, "While the sheriff
is coming back (before the board
on) Jan. 28, the takeover is not
going to be Jan. 29."

'Huge' meth lab found


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader

Members of the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office narcotics unit found
a "huge" active methamphetamine
laboratory in the kitchen of a Renia
Street home in Yulee after they exe-
cuted a search warrant at the resi-
dence on Friday.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said members of the
cleanup crew who came in to han-
dle cleaning out and taking apart
the meth lab told him it was "the
third-largest lab they'd seen (in
Northeast Florida)."
Detectives found several glass
jars containing a methamphetamine
mixture in the laundry area of the
house, along with several cans of
chemicals commonly used to man-
ufacture the drug.


Detectives
also found 159
empty boxes of
pseudoephedrine
in the home,
- located off Miner
Road, according
to a police report.
Rowell According to
police, a "mari-
juana cultivation
operation" with 128 marijuana plants
was also found at the residence, in
a shed on the property.
The resident of the home at 401
Renia St., Christopher Kelly Rowell,
was arrested on drug charges and
is being held at the Nassau County
Jail on $135,010 bond.
Seagraves said Rowell was
"cooking when we got there or had
just finished cooking" a batch of
methamphetamine.

The 2007 Toys for Tots Program, sponsored by the Nassau County Marine Corps League, would
like to THANK YOU, the citizens and businesses of Nassau County, for helping approximately 457
children this Christmas Season. We witnessed many tears of joy and words of thanks, which came
from the bottom of the parents' hearts. Many of the recipients told us they would not have had much
under the tree if it weren't for our efforts. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are willing
to give toys and give of their time to assist in the Toys for Tots Program. We appreciate everyone
who donated a toy to this Program as well as the offices who had Christmas parties and collected toys
for the children for gift exchanges. The Marine Corps League would like to thank the businesses that
allowed the drop-boxes for collection of toys and for their continued support of Toys for Tots year in
and year out.
We would like to thank all of the individuals who generously donated money to buy toys and those
who gave in memory of Edward E. Jones, Jr. Special thanks goes out to First Baptist Church of
Fernandina Beach for their annual Toyland Concert and Pak's Karate Academy who had their annual
Christmas Party, which raised hundreds of toys with spirited efforts. We could not do this without the
continued support of U-Store-It for providing our storage facility 7 years running.
During our 7th Annual Marine Corps League Golf Tournament in support of Toys for Tots we
raised much needed funding and thank the players and donors and would like to highlight the


businesses who generously particip

"He saw us coming and ran out
of the house," Seagraves said.
But Rowell was apprehended
and transported to jail. He faces
charges of cultivation of marijuana,
manufacture of methamphetamine,
possession of listed chemicals and
possession of more than 20 grams
of marijuana.
According to police, the mari-
juana in the house had a street value
of $128,000.
Seagraves said narcotics unit

Rowell after seeing his name numer-

Anti-tax initiative on



the ballot Tuesday


The venerable state lawmaker
looked bewildered when asked if
a jigsaw puzzle of pieces are
coming together in an anti-tax ini-
tiative that will be voted on
Tuesday.
"Who doesn't want lower
taxes?" he asked. You would think
the simple question has an obvious
answer. But the upcoming vote by
Florida resi-
dents has cre-
ated the most
confusion
" -*, since the
"floating
, chads" elec-
tion contro-
versy.
SMost resi-
dents want
Steve lower taxes. It
NicklaS means more
.- . - money in their
STEVE'S poc k ets.
However, they
MARKET won't approve
PLACE something
they don't
understand. Hence, a storm of
rhetoric - both pro and con - has
descended upon the state in the
form of newspaper articles, public
hearings and accusations.
Most of the people who oppose
the sweeping mandate for reducing
property taxes at the county and
city levels are elected officials and
public employees. Organizations
representing cities and counties
have railed against the mandate as
being unfair to them.


Class in 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 periodi-
cally 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.


Some municipalities maintain
they are responsible enough with-
out state interference. However,
there are plenty of cities and coun-
ties that are not. For instance,
Nassau County Commissioners
have rarely rolled back the tax rate
in recent years, despite an explo-
sion of development and addition-
al tax revenues here.
The initiative carved out by Gov.
Charlie Crist does not impact
schools. It does create a layer
of protection against outlandish tax
increases for businesses, second
homes and investment properties.
Residents will receive an even
greater exemption from taxes on
their homes. Also, the protective
cap on your home's assessed valu-
ation will become portable in the
event you decide to sell. So not only
are the coveted homestead exemp-
tions protected, they have been

expanded.
There is a widespread misrep-
resentation that residents will lose
their homestead protection under
the new initiative. A prior measure
was more restrictive in that sense,
but it has been almost completely
revised into the new and improved
version.
State and federal lawmakers are
commonly criticized for raising
taxes. This is a case where some-
one wants to reduce your taxes.
And there is still opposition and
distrust among many factions.
Cities and counties say they'll have
to lay off firefighters and policeof-
ficers, and the streets will become
unsafe. That's ridiculous, to be hon-
est. Our country and our state are
heading into a possible recession,
which means businesses and con-
sumers will cut back. Can't city
and county governments do the
same?
State revenues from real estate
sales and tourism have declined
precipitously over the past year.
The state has even had to dip into
its reserves. State lawmakers plain-
ly see this. They know something
must be done to revive our econo-
my.
Don't believe the propaganda
of local officials. Cutting back dur-
ing lean times makes sense. There
is plenty of fat to trim in county and
city budgets to meet the state-man-
dated tax rates without impacting
vital services. We desperately need
this as a state. So we all need your
vote - in favor of the anti-tax ini-
tiatives.

sor who lives on Amelia Island. He

Taxpayers urged to vote Yes on 1


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader

Florida taxpayers have borne
the brunt of the escalating real
estate market over the last few
years, while local governments have
gained revenue, says Trey Price,
public policy representative for the
Florida Association of Realtors.
That is why he urged the audi-
ence at a community meeting Jan.
14 to vote "Yes" on Amendment 1 to
the Florida Constitution on the bal-
lot Tuesday.
Price explained at the meeting,
held at Yulee Elementary School,
that total property tax levies
increased 99 percent between 2001
and 2006. But personal income, he
added, grew only 44 percent dur-
ing the same period.
Amendment 1 would allow an
additional $25,000 deduction (on
top of $25,000 already allowed) for
homesteaded properties with an
assessed value of at least $75,000.
There is also a $25,000 exemption
for Floridians who live in mobile or
manufactured homes for additions
like porches, garages and sun-
rooms.
It would also allow homeowners
to keep their Save Our Homes tax
advantage if they want sell their
home and buy another in Florida.
This "portability" is retroactive to
Jan. 1, 2007. With the current prop-
erty tax laws, owners lose their
homestead exemption when they
sell their properties and must start
all over.
Price noted that with current
Save Our Homes laws, homeowners
are reluctant to sell their proper-
ties because they would lose the

Thoughtless Fun
Joy in Amelia, riding the carriage as
marquees sparkle the glass.
Then as a cardinal scoops and past,
beautiful lamps fashion from the
Victorian style, stand to last like the
crept myrtle along the path. Sunbath
hats, just imagine having a Persian
Cat. The horses troddle their hoofs, as
tourist buy their gifts and stuff. Ice
cream parlor in the mist, little revolving
stools so everyone can sit. It taste so
good, patriots comes far out of the
woods. Freshly shrimps as the shrimp
boats ring, netting themselves for a
glorious spring. The clouds the rains
gather in its own season, to make
Amelia your reason. Restrooms fresh
and clean, just like the cocktail at
Barbara Jeans. Tommy Shave Bridge,
is always in the lean at Barbara
Jean's. The old courthouse clock sits
in history, looking beyond its time with
tourists dazzle at the mystery. Amelia
treats you well, as she stands at
Jacobs well. The ocean flows with
Rivers of water; Our comforter came
from the depth of the sea, as so that
all man might be free
Author
Rickey Willie Wallace 1/1/08


Amendment 1
* Homestead exemption doubled from $25,000 to $50,000 for prop-
erty assessed at more than $75,000
* Save Our Homes "portability" for those who wish to upsize or
downsize
* $25,000 Tangible Personal Property deduction for businesses
* $25,000 exemption for mobile- or manufactured-home owners, for
porches, sunrooms, carports, etc.
*Assessment cap of 10 percent a year for non-homestead proper-


tax savings accumulated over the
years.
The new amendment, however,
allows up to $500,000 of accrued
Save Our Homes benefits to be sub-
tracted from the value of the next
homesteaded property. If a home-
owner is downsizing, the law would
take the amount equal to the ratio of
assessed to real value.
Owners of vacation and rental
properties would also benefit from
the amendment, which would cap
their property assessments at 10
percent per year starting in 2009.
And business owners can take
advantage of the tangible personal
property tax exemption of $25,000.


Price said this would mean more
than one million small-business
owners would pay no taxes on tan-
gible property.
Municipalities, counties and
their employees have expressed
concern the amendment, if passed,
would cut funding for services.
But Price said it would have lit-
tle or no effect on schools.
He also noted that "nothing in
Amendment 1 can be changed by
local officials." The amendment, he
said, would also "cut taxes no mat-
ter what happens to property val-
ues."
Price noted that all citizens can
still vote for Amendment 1 even if

much to get excited about, but
think about lots of pennies, like
a million pennies, which of
course is $10,000. Now that's
something to get excited about,"
Richardson said.
Richardson belongs to a new
women's group call Win-Win
(Women in Nassau Helping
Women in Need). This group
gets together every other
month, networking businesses
and raising money for Gerri's
Corner, a resource center for
women with cancer.
"The work Gerri's Corner is
doing here locally for women is
amazing and I am proud to do
whatever I can to help raise
awareness and money. I am
pleased to say Gerri's Corner
will be the recipient of the
money raised from the penny

Chris Alznauer founded

sister Gerri Dadd, who died
from breast cancer in 2005.
Gerri's Corner is located in

Micah's Place plans


to open resale store


Micah's Place plans to open a
resale center in Fernandina Beach
in the first quarter of 2008 to help
expand its accommodations for vic-
tims of domestic violence.
Sustainable revenue from this
"social enterprise" will allow expan-
sion of the current facility, provide
for long-term housing needs and
provide an outlet for survivor art,
crafts and handmade items, accord-
ing to Katey Breen, development
director.
The store will carry consign-
ment items created by domestic
violence survivors who will receive
a percentage of the sale.
In addition to these items, the
sale center will carry furniture,
small household items and fine
ladies' clothing.
The store will also serve as a
place to obtain information on
domestic violence services in


Nassau County. This will allow sur-
vivors, family members or con-
cerned friends to obtain resource
information from a trained advo-
cate on site, Breen said.
In the last quarter of 2007,
Micah's Place provided alternative
shelter to over 45 participants due
to lack of space. Alternative shelter
is provided when Micah's Place's
own emergency shelter is full to
capacity and additional women and
children must be placed into other
certified centers outside of Nassau
County.
"These displacements further
prove that our current accommo-
dations are falling short of the
needs of an ever growing county,"
Breen said in a press release.
For more information, volun-
teer opportunities or to make dona-
tion to the resale center, call 491-
6364, ext. 2.


'No Hat, No Hoods'


in Florida banks


Florida banks, including First
Federal Bank of Florida, are imple-
menting a "No Hats, No Hoods,
No Sunglasses" program.
'This is a response to the rising


number of bank robberies we've
seen in Florida," said chairman of
the Florida Bankers Association
and president of Citizens Bank of
Florida, Rick Lee, in a press release.
'The simple act of removing hats,
hoods and sunglasses inside
Florida financial institutions will
make it much easier to identify and
capture anyone committing a
crime."
First Federal will have signs in
the bank asking customers to
remove their hats, hoods and sun-
glasses. First Federal employees
will politely remind people to
remove their hats, hoods and sun-
glasses. People who refuse will still
be served, but First Federal
employees will be watching them
more closely.
Law enforcement officials say
the "No Hats" program is an effec-
tive deterrent to the so-called "note
job" criminals. These are typically
unarmed individuals who want to
enter and leave the institutions
without being noticed.

Vote Yes on


Amendment 1


Tuesday to amend the state constitution
to reform our property tax system.
This less than perfect amendment
would increase the homestead exemption for
property owners; make it "portable," allowing
homeowners to take the exemption with them if
they move; give businesses an exemption on the
first $25,000 of tangible property; and limit tax
increases on non-homesteaded property to 10
percent a year.
Gov. Charlie Crist, the Florida Chamber of
Commerce, Florida Association of Realtors and
other business groups support it.
The amendment would reduce property tax
income for local governments, pinching those -
including ours here in Nassau County - that are
living beyond their means. As a result, the Florida
Association of Counties, Florida League of Cities,
public employee unions and other labor groups
oppose it.
There are problems with this amendment: It
retains the basic unfairness of our property tax
system by giving longtime homeowners a bigger
break compared to others. The average home-
owner will get a token - about $240 a year -
break. The tax break for businesses is too mod-
est. It doesn't capture any of the huge property
tax revenues local governments have collected in
recent years. In fact, it may lead to relatively deep
cuts in government services for a relatively small
savings to taxpayers.
Most important of all, if this amendment is
approved it may take the steam out of the proper-
ty tax reform movement.
Still, we support it. Half a loaf is better than
none. It does not go far enough, and it retains
inequities, but it's the best deal on the table. We
urge you to vote for it.
Then we urge you to keep the pressure on
your local governments to be more efficient with
your tax dollars. And keep the pressure on Gov.
Crist and state legislators to come up with an
even more comprehensive, fairer plan.
We need a fair tax system that brings in an
appropriate amount of money to pay for reason-
able public services.
This isn't it, but it's better than nothing. Vote
Yes on Amendment 1.

I VIEWPOINT/Lou FREY JR/FORMER MEMBER OF CONGRESS



Road to presidency rolls to Florida


t's amazing, but once again the road to the presi-
dency goes through Florida. This time Florida is
key in the Republican primary. Former
Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney beat U.S. Sen.
John McCain in Michigan, but his victory was not
overwhelming. All the Republican candidates, except
former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, scrambled to South
Carolina for the primary last Saturday, where
McCain won.
McCain comes into Florida with more momentum
than Romney, and all the Republican candidates for
the first time will have an added starter, Giuliani, who
has more to gain or to lose than anybody in the
Florida election. His strategy
was not to get involved in the early
Primaries. This strategy was based
on a realistic assessment that
S Giuliani would not do well in Iowa
and New Hampshire because of
his personal history and his stance
Son abortion and stem cell
research.
This was not a brilliant strategic
Frey move, but a move based on poor
poll results and necessity. If he
doesn't win in Florida he will be
injured in the Super Tuesday election on Feb. 5.
Republicans will have contests in 21 states with 975
delegates at stake representing 41 percent of the total
available. There is no way the candidates can cam-
paign personally or wage television campaigns in all
these states, which if done would cost well over $35
million.
McCain, if he wins Florida, will have created his
own momentum and go into Feb. 5 leading in nation-
al polls. Giuliani has focused on some states in the
Northeast, such as Connecticut, Delaware, New
Jersey and New York, where he has an opportunity to
win all of those delegates.
Romney will probably finish third in Florida and
be on life support. At the moment it appears no one is
going to win a majority of the 21 states, which means
that the Republican primary will continue after Feb. 5
with fewer contenders. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike
Huckabee and U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson will drop
out after finishing fourth and fifth. The x-factor
remains Giuliani, whose campaign has been dam-
aged by his lack of involvement and whose national
lead has disappeared, but who could have enough
gas left in the tank to re-energize the campaign and
become a legitimate contender in the race for the
Republican presidential nomination.
Finally, just to remind you of the significance of
the states voting on Feb. 5, they are:
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California,
Colorado (by caucus), Connecticut, Delaware,
Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota (by cau-
cus), Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey,
New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma,


JEFF PARKER/FLORIDATODAY


Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and American
Samoa.
In summary, the winner of the Republican
Primary in Florida will also win the most delegates
on Feb. 5. The two who come in fourth and fifth will
drop out. The third place finisher will be on life sup-
port. The Republican campaign will continue. Some
of the bigger primary elections after Feb. 5 for
Republicans are:
Maryland (37) on Feb. 12; Ohio (88) and Texas
(140) on March 4; Mississippi (39) on March 11;

For Democrats, Florida is not important. The rea-
son Florida is not important is that no delegates are
at stake, thanks to the decision by Gov. Howard
Dean, head of the Democratic National Committee.


This decision has been the only bright spot for the
Republicans in Florida. It also means that whatever
momentum there is will be created in the South
Carolina Democratic primary on Saturday. The
Democrats on Feb. 5 will have contests in 22 states
with over 1,601 delegates (52 percent) of the total
available.
U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton will win the most dele-
gates on Feb. 5. Also, there are 825 "super" delegates
and Hillary has most of those already committed to
her. This represents over 25 percent of the 2,104 del-
egates needed to win the nomination. The
Democratic race will be over on Feb. 6.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Lifewithout log trucks
As a relatively new resident of Fernandina Beach,
who is also a business owner, I am at a loss to under-
stand why the logging trucks are still speeding down
Eighth Street (especially to beat the red light at Centre
Street) if a private study showed that, by transferring
logs from trucks to rail, there would be increased effi-
ciency and less log truck traffic on Eighth Street/A1A
through the Historic District.
This study showed that a log truck could increase
its number of trips a day when transferring its logs at
a rail transfer station on US 17. With the price of fuel
rising, the log trucking company and the paper indus-
try could have reduced costs if the trucks were
unloaded at the rail station rather than coming onto the
island for unloading.
Our city commissioners should be taking every
opportunity they have to reduce the trucking busi-
ness on A1A through the Historic District. Using the
rail transfer system would get 300 trucks off the road
a day and make Amelia Island a much more pleasant
place to visit.
Have you noticed recently how many businesses
have closed on Eighth Street? Numerous owners still
in business have told me that they feel the logging
trucks keep customers away from their businesses. It's
just too hard to get out of parking lots with so many
trucks on Eighth Street.
With Eighth Street being the main entrance to the
Historic District, the commissioners should be embar-
rassed by just how ugly that entrance is - many empty
dilapidated buildings, other buildings in poor repair,
businesses barely staying in business.
Let's hope that First Coast Railroad will be able to
handle a larger scale log transfer operation in the
spring when Eighth Street is going to be resurfaced.
After the resurfacing is finished, do we really want
more grooves and holes in the road because of the log
trucking business?
What will it take to get the logging trucks off
Eighth Street? I urge the commissioners and First
Coast Railroad to work together to remove 300
trucks a day from their travels through the city.

St Marys'waterfront
Hurray for Joan Bean! I totally agree with her let-
ter to "Voice of the People" (Jan. 16). Let me add my
voice to hers on the St. Marys waterfront park that is
just beautiful! They have picnic tables, seating areas
(swings!), landscaping (gorgeous, well-planned, local
varieties of plants), grassy areas, waterfront views ..
. It is so attractive and inviting -just the thing to attract
tourists to their waterfront. We need something sim-
ilar. It just takes some imagination and creativity!

Where are our priorities?
In the last few months, we have heard a lot of hor-
ror stories about animal cruelty and neglect. The
Michael Vick story was plastered all over the news for
weeks. Closer to home, this newspaper devoted quite
a bit of space and comment to the troubled and trou-
bling Animal Control situation in this county. These
were horrible situations that needed to be exposed and
corrected, and I applaud the media for bringing them
to the public attention. And I applaud you, the viewer
and reader, for making your voices heard. Why was
there such an outcry over this? Not because it was
legally wrong, but because it was morally wrong and
reprehensible to all thinking and caring human beings.
But this is not the only area of cruelty that needs
to be addressed in our society. Every hour of every
business day in this country alone over 700 babies are
put to death through abortion. Where is the media cov-


erage? Where is the public outcry? Is this not more hor-
rific and widespread than the killing of even a thousand
dogs or cats? Where is the moral outrage? On this
anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I think it's time that
Americans think about what is going on in our coun-
try. As we sit in our churches, synagogues, mosques
or whatever and contemplate our relationship with
Our Maker, we need to realize that our silence on this
issue perpetuates the slaughter of babies. To my mind,
this is much more horrible than any of the tragedies
that have occupied the front pages of late. I don't think
I'm alone on this. It's time that we make our thoughts
known and put a halt to this.
And to those of you who would say that a woman
has the right to choose, I would agree. Awoman has
the right to do what she wishes with her body. She has
the right to choose not to create a life. But once that
life is created, her rights cease to be any more impor-
tant than the rights of the child she has created.
You can put it in any terms you choose, but the fact
remains that every abortion takes a human life. Saying
it's legal still doesn't make it right.

Sunset over Marsh Lakes
I have been a resident in The Villages of Marsh
Lakes since 2001, when my husband and I came back
to the island after living away for 40 years, both in this
country and abroad. I'm that rarest of all disappearing
species: a Fernandina native, and my husband, though
French-born (and a proud-to-be-naturalized U.S. citi-
zen) considered Amelia Island his "real" home. I was
so appreciative of Pat Foster-Turley's piece in the
newspaper recently regarding Marsh Lakes as a bird
paradise ("Sunset over Marsh Lakes is for the birds,"
Jan. 9). It is precisely that - not only at dusk when the
water and wading birds fly in to safe haven around the
lakes, but all day long. Dusk, however, brings in a
gorgeous ballet of bird choreography, an elegiac sym-
phony as the birds come to roost in the trees. It is an
incredible sight, and a neighborhood treasure. Pat
Foster-Turley expressed it as well as any poet could in
her article.
I am writing to deplore the intrusion of a strip mall,
designated for the parcel of land at the front of Marsh
Lakes. A strip mall, true to its name, will strip our
trees and natural foliage indigent to this part of our
world, and seriously endanger our bird community. As
Ms. Foster-Turley said, "It sure would be a crying
shame to lose yet another wonder of our natural
Nassau County world." Not only a shame, but a shame-
less crime in the league of the abomination of the
ugly, unfinished high-rise condo project just before the
bridge on A1A. This site (sight) is what greets people
driving to our beautiful island. What sort of vision is
this?
These developers should be rewarded for their
"improvements" by solitary confinement in an over-
heated room in Dante's version of hell. The poet that
I am waxes poetic, but that would surely be poetic
judgment. And have you ever noticed the migration of
sea gulls to superstore parking lots?
Nola Perez
Fernandina Beach
Tree law a sappy subject
This is one catchall that needs to be refined con-
siderably ("County axes tree ordinance again" Jan.
16).
To begin with, all individual homeowners should be
excluded entirely. It should concern only commercial
and real estate developers. Why should all homeown-
ers pay for the sins of a few "almighty dollar" develop-
ers?
Most homeowners plant more trees than they cut.
Most people, including myself, plant trees too close to
houses, driveways and utility lines. We don't realize our
mistake until a big limb falls on the roof or the drive-

(


way starts buckling. We shouldn't have to get the
approval of a crabby official, who wouldn't know a
crabapple from an Osage orange, to remove any tree
that has become a nuisance.
If an area is to be developed, trees should be left in
clusters rather than individually. Individually, trees
tend to be paved around and all the traffic will compact
and choke any tree with a lateral root system. They will
never be healthy. About like sending someone to prison
to die over a long period of time.
There should be a complete moratorium on cut-
ting wetland species in wetlands. Far too much of this
has gone on already between Amelia Island and Yulee.
One day the county is going to "reap what the developer
has sown."

Amendment
An author recently wrote she was against the pro-
posed constitutional tax amendment, citing a loss of
funds available to schools as a primary reason for vot-
ing no ("Amendment 1 could spell disaster," Jan. 18).
I thought that was interesting given a reading of the pro-
posed amendment reveals schools are not affected by
the increase in the homestead exemption.
Supposedly similar limitations to those proposed in
Florida forced California state school achievements to
drop relative to those of other states. Having lived in
California for a considerable portion of the period cited
by that author, I note there were issues in addition to
curtailed taxes in Californiawhich caused proficiencies
to fall such as a dual language education system and
huge increases in population. At the same time, I am
aware that had property taxes been allowed to track real
estate values on a one to one basis, many would have
been taxed out of their homes. I know it is anecdotal,
but one person I knew in Tiburon who lived mostly on
Social Security would have had her real estate taxes
exceed her entire income long ago were it not for
California Props 13 and 48.
The author went on to note the League of Women
Voters suspects our current and proposed taxing sys-
tem may not be able to withstand a court challenge.
Perhaps so, but I note in California a very liberal pro-
taxing state judiciary has turned back challenges. They
were not supported in the federal circuit either, the most
left wing and overturned circuit in the country. So I put
no credence in the League's concern.
I have not decided to vote yea or nay on this amend-
ment as for instance I like the portability provisions yet
I don't believe forcing local governments who have
been relatively conservative in their spending into a fis-
cal box. I do agree with one aspect of the Andrew
Jackson quote furnished by that author: "On the sure
ground of experience...." So, therefore I thinkwe should
vote based on fact not on partial fact or suspicions.

Ethical management
When one has plenty, such as an ample supply of
potable water, any discussion on how to manage and
allocate that supply is not logically or ethically complete
unless the same problem has been addressed as a
global opportunity to serve a world need.
Problem regions for water include Syria, Egypt,
Sub-Sahara Africa and others.
A water district here, in Europe, Japan or Australia
could be assigned a companion region to be nurtured
and co-funded.
The argument for solving the water allocation prob-
lem globally while preparing to act locally is that the
best way to avoid ever increasing demands on our
local resources is to help people meet their basic
needs where they are. Acting in our own self-interest
I suggest can be a win-win situation.

A few weeks ago, I got a
disturbing phone call.
"You know the Three
Stooges otters? Well, I
think one of them is dead.
There's something I think is a
dead otter on Jasmine Road near
the Greenway. It's big, like a seal,
right? You can find it by the
group of vultures on it. Can you
go look?"
Although the size description
didn't seem quite right, later that
day I made my way to Jasmine,
expecting the worst. Each year I
hear of one or two road kills on
the streets bisecting Amelia
Island's natural spaces. There's
no way to identify one otter from
another when they are in the
wild, and besides our famous
Three Stooges there are no doubt
a number of other male and
female river otters, alone or in
groups, that travel between our
water bodies. But, at least if I
could find the road kill, I could
determine if it was a male or
female, a female with developing
fetuses, or who knows what - if
the carcass was not too decom-
posed, that is.
Sure enough, when I got to
Jasmine, the vultures were there
avidly feeding on a bloated mam-
mal carcass, maybe small "seal
sized" but far larger than any
otter. It was a mid-sized deer rot-
ted to perfection from a vulture's
perspective. I must admit I was
relieved it wasn't an otter, but sad
for the deer nonetheless. Our
roads are death traps for all of
our wild creatures that need to
roam up and down Amelia Island
to find suitable forage, mates and
habitat. If we had enough political
will and resources - or a substan-
tial gift from a wealthy wildlife
patron, we could design and build
wildlife crossings under our

Foster-Turley

roads. But
until then, the
carnage goes
on.
What is
bad for the
deer, though,
is great for
the vultures.
These past
few months
there have
been more
than the
usual number
of vultures
around


Fernandina, seems to me. On the
north end of 14th Street one
group of vultures often roosts on
a snag overlooking the marsh.
Not long ago two of these vul-
tures settled for awhile on the
vacant 14th Street osprey nest
high on the pole near the back
gate of Fort Clinch State Park,
admiring the view no doubt.
Another group of vultures often
roosts on a large pine tree and
nearby telephone poles along
Simmons Road. There are other
vulture roosts too around our
island and nearby. I'm sure you
must have noticed them too.
Well, the various groups of
vultures, as social as they are,
must have joined together at the
deer carcass to have a party. I've
never seen so many vultures -
black vultures, these were - col-
lected in one spot. There must
have been three dozen of them
perched in the nearby trees, and
surrounding the dead dear. With
safety in numbers and a well-
worn acclimation to humans,
these vultures were unafraid of
me as I approached the carcass. I
got within 15 feet of them before
the feeding vultures flew up into
the nearby trees.

In just two days most of the
deer was consumed and little but
bones remained. Without the vul-
tures around, our world would be
a rotting mess. These scavengers
are quick to respond to major bio-
logical cleanup duties all around
us, and with no cost to our own
health and happiness.
Vultures are good upstanding
citizens. They do not attack living
animals, and do not circle dead
and dying animals either. That's
all an old cowboy myth. Vultures
only consume animals that have
been dead for a day or so when
the decomposing flesh is more
easily torn off with their relatively
weak beaks. Their strong stom-
ach acids dissolve most every-
thing, and their droppings are
clean enough to be used as a dis-
infectant, if you are so inclined.
And, vultures are smart, long-
lived, social birds too. Vultures
congregate in peaceful groups at
night, and a number of groups
gather together to calmly divide a
feast when it appears. Although
often the red-headed turkey vul-
tures - with their better sense of
smell - find a dead animal first,
soon the rest of the vultures are
welcomed in to share to spoils
too.
Vultures make devoted mates,
live together year-round and stick
with their partners for life. Recent
DNA studies of black vultures
prove that they form totally
monogamous pairs with no "extra
pair fertilizations." And, unlike
many other species I could men-
tion, both partners share equally
in offspring rearing and house-
keeping activities.
Instead of shunning vultures,
we should admire them, don't
you think? In my view, the world
would be a better place if humans
were more like these virtuous
vultures.

Realtors honor top


brmers in 2007


The Amelia Island Nassau
County Association of Realtors held
its annual Installation and Awards
Banquet at Amelia Island Plantation
on Jan. 11. Approximately 130 local
realtors and affiliates attended the
banquet, which is held to recog-
nize outstanding members of the
association not only for top sales
performance but also for their com-
munity service.
When the local association was
formed in 1981 it was called the
Nassau County Board of Realtors
and Curtis Lasserre was president.
Through the years 26 other local
realtors have served as president,
including his son Jon Lasserre in
2003.
Pressley Hollingsworth has sin-
gle distinction of leading the asso-
ciation as president twice, in 1998
and again in 2005. Most of the past
presidents were on hand to partic-
ipate in a ceremony that ended
when the 2008 president, Tina
Scrudato, received the President's
Pin from her mother, Grace
Lipman, the 2004 president, just
before she was handed the gavel
by outgoing President Jackie Darby.

Johnson seeks election as sheriff


C.W. (Connie) Johnson, retired
Nassau County Sheriff's captain, has
announced he will seek the Republican
nomination for Nassau County sheriff
in 2008.
Three Republicans have filed to
seek election as sheriff. They include
incumbent Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
and Richard King, former director of
the Nassau County Jail. Fernandina
Beach Police Capt. Jim Coe, a Demo-
crat, also has filed to seek the office.
Johnson, of Hilliard, was Seagraves'
undersheriff prior to his retirement.


"Nassau County
is faced with new
growth and chal-
, lenges calling for
immediate attention,"
Johnson said in his
campaign announce-
ment. Johnson said
Johnson he is up for the chal-
lenge, "having
proven leadership
skills (and) 25 years' experience in
law enforcement"
Johnson said his "desire is to pro-


mote a working environment and
understanding between the officers
and the citizens of the county."
Johnson is a lifelong resident of
Nassau County, married to Ann
Johnson, with five children and four
grandchildren.
He has been involved with a fami-
ly-owned business for more than 35
years, giving him "a greater knowl-
edge in management and budgeting."
The Republican primary election
is scheduled Aug. 26 and the general
election Nov. 4.


Crenshaw favors Romney


Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney
has announced that U.S. Congressman Ander
Crenshaw, a Florida Republican whose district
includes Nassau County, has endorsed Romney's
candidacy for president of the United States.
Rep. Crenshaw will serve as a chair of
Romney's Florida Statewide Steering Committee.
"Throughout this campaign, Gov. Romney
has shown that he is the only candidate who
can bring broad-based conservative change to
Washington," said Crenshaw in a press release.
"This election is about the future, not the past,
and Floridians are demanding change. Gov.
Romney has the experience, vision and values to


strengthen our economy, strengthen America
and secure a brighter future for our children
and grandchildren."
Romney is competing with U.S. Sen. John
McCain, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee,
former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former
U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson and U.S. Rep. Ron
Paul in Florida's Republican presidential pri-
mary election Tuesday.
Additional Northeast Floridians leading
Romney's campaign in the state include Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves and state Rep.
Steve Wise of Jacksonville, who represents
Nassau County.

I DR.DOBSONANS WERS YOURQUESTIOS]


Q UESTION:What's the
appeal ofall this human
suffering and violence
on television and in
movies?Why do people
want more of it?
DR. DOBSON:
I'm sure it has something to do with
our desire for excitement and our
need to escape from the boring exis-
tence many people experience. But, I
have to admit I don't fully understand
it. It is difficult to comprehend why
people enjoy watching such bloody
events. A number of years ago, the
number one television program in
the entire year, watched by more peo-
ple than all the sporting events or any
other single program in the course
of the 12 month period, was "Helter
Skelter," the story of the Charles
Manson family. One incident in thatTV
special was the murder of a woman,
eight-months pregnant, who was bru-
tally stabbed in the abdomen.Why
would anyone want to see such bru-
tality?The popularity of that program
and others like it speaks dramatical-
ly about the depravity of the American
people and our lust for violence.


QUESTION: As a single mother,
I'd like to leave my children with friends or
relatives for a few days and get some time
for myself, but I'm worried about how this


Dr.
James
Dobson


might affect them.Will they feel deserted?
DR. DOBSON: Not only is a brief
time away from your children not likely to
be hurtful -- it will probably be healthy for
them. One of the special risks faced by sin-
gle parents is possibility of a dependency
relationship developing that will trap their
children at an immature stage.This danger
is increased when wounded people cling to
each other exclusively for support in stress-
ful times. Spending a reasonable amount of
time apart can teach independence and
give everyone a little relief from the routine.
Therefore, if you have a clean, safe place to
leave your children for a week or two, by
all means, do it.You'll be more refreshed and
better able to handle your usual "home-
work" when you return.
QUESTION: I have a very fussy
eight-month-old baby who cries whenever
I put her down. My pediatrician says she is
healthy and that she cries just because she
wants me to hold her all the time. I do give
her a lot of attention, but I simply can't
keep her on my lap all day long. How can I
make her less fussy?


DR. DOBSON:The crying of infants
is an important form of communication.
Through their tears we learn of their
hunger,fatigue,discomfort, or diaper disas-
ter.Thus, it is important to listen to those
calls for help and interpret them accordingly.
On the other hand, your pediatrician is
right. It is possible to create a fussy, demand-
ing baby by rushing to pick her up every
time she utters a whimper or sigh. Infants
are fully capable of learning to manipulate
their parents through a process called rein-
forcement,whereby any behavior that pro-
duces a pleasant result will tend to recur.
Thus, a healthy baby can keep her mother
hopping around her nursery twelve hours
a day (or night) by simply forcing air past her
sandpaper larynx.To avoid this consequence,
it is important to strike a balance between
giving your baby the attention she needs and
establishing her as a tiny dictator. Don't be
afraid to let her cry a reasonable period of
time (which is thought to be healthy for the
lungs), although it is necessary to listen to
the tone of her voice for the difference
between random discontent and genuine
distress. Most mothers learn to recognize
this distinction very quickly.
When my daughter was one year of
age, I used to stand out of sight at the
doorway of her nursery for four or five min-
utes, awaiting a momentary lull in the cry-
ing before going to pick her up. By so doing,
I reinforced the pauses rather than the
tears.You might try the same approach.

Firefighters confront 'great danger'

Community Newspapers


Meritorious citations were pre-
sented to 14 Nassau County fire-
fighter/paramedics for their efforts
in fighting a fire Nov. 21 and res-
cuing a colleague from life-threat-
ening danger.
"This day, Nov. 21, 2007,
brought reality to Nassau County
Fire-Rescue ... as we realized what
happens other places can happen
here," county Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper told Nassau County
Commissioners at an awards cer-
emony Jan. 14.
Cooper, along with deputy
chiefs Sam Young and Roger West,
and the commission, presented
meritorious unit citations to Lt. Pat
Cauley, who was trapped in a
garage during a fire on Nov. 21,
and 13 others.
The Thanksgiving eve fire at
22600 Fortress Lane was caused
by defects in a chimney flue. The
defects allowed fire and heat to
rise inside the wall cavity, igniting
the home's construction and caus-
ing a fire to spread through the
attic of Gust and Monica
Hemming's home.
Crews from the A-shift of sta-
tions 40, 50 and 90 responded to
the fire, along with crews from sev-
eral volunteer fire stations and
Jacksonville Fire-Rescue. Through
their efforts, the family's pets,
including a horse, four dogs, two
cats and some fish, all survived.
The Hemmings' 9-year-old son,
Kevin, was home alone with his
grandfather, Ollie Hemming, who
was visiting from Minnesota. They
both escaped uninjured.
A video of the fire shows that as
firefighters battled the blaze, the
ceiling above the garage collapsed,
pinning Cauley to the floor of the
garage. Lt. Glenn Harper used his
hand radio to call for help.
"Mayday, mayday, we have fire-
fighters trapped in the garage," he
said. "We need all available assis-
tance to the garage."
Emergency 911 dispatcher Lisa
Neaves was working the call and
dispatched all available firefight-
ers to the home.
Cooper said Cauley was trapped

for roughly 15 minutes, during
which time Harper never left his
side.
"He exposed himself to great
danger to comfort and free Lt.
Cauley," Cooper said, adding that
though Cauley said he was at peace


with God, Harper assured him
dying was not an option, and
removed his own fire mask to
maintain eye contact with Cauley.
Firefighters managed to free
Cauley, who is now able to look
back and recall lying on the
ground, unable to lift his boot
because of a screw that had gone
through it. He suffered burns and
an ankle injury, but has spent the
past nine weeks nursing those
wounds and is on the road to recov-
ery.
During the ceremony, Cauley
was presented with the Purple
Heart. Robert Gonzalez of
Municipal Fire Equipment
returned his helmet to him, telling
him it was ready to go back to work
when he was able to.

chambers. Cooper said it is the
first time the honor has ever been
awarded to a county firefighter.
Lt. Junior Crews received the
Medal of Honor for providing
egress to Cauley and Harper.
In addition, meritorious awards
were presented to Capt. Mark
Lipinski, engineers Bill Foures,
Kelly Gunnell, Steve Johnson,
Craig Reynolds, Brian Sloan,
Felicia Davis and Jerry Walden,
and firefighters Kent Davis, Brian
Reaves and Matthew Patrick.
The meritorious awards were
presented for "the dedicated
efforts of the firefighting crews
who quickly changed their offen-
sive attack on the blaze to a defen-
sive attack while focusing on the
extrication and safety of their own
members."

A gasoline spill Sunday at the
Amelia Island Yacht Basin was
quickly contained, according to
authorities.
Robert Nash of the U.S. Coast
Guard said the local fire depart-
ment and others contained and
cleaned up the spill before the
Coast Guard arrived.
The Coast Guard will conduct
an investigation into the spill to
find out what happened and if any
laws were broken.


"(The spill) was really kind of
taken care of before we got there,"
Nash said.
"A supply pipe broke through
and dropped about 180 gallons (of
gasoline) in the water," said
Nassau County Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper. "The fuel spill was con-
tained by staff members at the
Amelia Island Yacht Basin and
Nassau County Fire Rescue."
Cooper said hazardous mate-

Jacksonville Fire Rescue were also
called to the scene to assist with

bus wreck
SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
A Nassau County school bus
driver was released from the hos-
pital the same day as a Thursday
wreck that killed a man, but anoth-
er victim remains in critical condi-
tion at Shands Jacksonville.
Bus driver Michelle Conner, 40,
of Hilliard was not seriously injured
in the crash, and none of the chil-
dren riding the bus was hurt.
John Robert Ryder, 73, of
Zephyrhills - a passenger in the
other vehicle involved in the acci-
dent - died at the scene. The driv-
er of that vehicle, Carole Jean
Ryder, 70, of Zephyrhills remained
in critical condition at Shands
Tuesday morning.
According to Lt. Bill Leeper of
the Florida Highway Patrol, the bus
was traveling west on A1A
approaching the 1-95 on-ramp as a
2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV
traveling east on A1A attempted to
turn left to go north on 1-95.
Leeper said the SUV turned into
the path of the school bus and the
bus struck the SUV in the right
passenger side.
Leeper said the accident is still
under investigation and no citations
have been issued.

Brady's


mortality


manifested


itself


week late

Tom Brady proved
human Sunday, toss-
ing three intercep-
tions in the Patriots' 21-12 win
over San Diego after throwing
just six picks all season.
Unfortunately for Jacksonville
fans, Brady's break from
immortality came too little too
late. A little bit of such human
error last week and Northeast
Florida might be burning up
the lines for airfare to Arizona.
But back to Sunday, had
the Charges mustered any
semblance of offense in the
red zone, we might be spared
the I ..,i team of all time" talk
we're sure to hear for the next
week and a half. Banged up or
not, San Diego's offense had
every opportunity to put
points on the board and
walked away with just four
field goals. Obviously not the
way to beat the Patriots.
Now it's up to the New
York Giants, who are early
12.5-point underdogs, to take
the "David" role and try their
hand at slaying Goliath.
Maybe Giants' QB Eli
Manning can dig deep for
some of that family karma that
his brother Peyton has been
hogging all these years ...
Fans who are using the
Giants' recent surge to argue
that Jacksonville should have
never fired former head coach
Tom Coughlin should pipe
down. Because not only was
Coughlin the Jaguars' coach,
he was the general manager
and single-handedly responsi-
ble for the salary cap mess
from which many wondered if
the organization would ever
recover. Add that to the fact
that he wasn't the most fan-
friendly chap and it was time
for a change ...
Speaking of fan-friendly, it's
hard not to like Green Bay QB
Brett Favre, which made it
hard to watch the Packers
lose Sunday. Seriously, who,
outside of New England, was-
n't hoping for a Favre-Brady
Super Bowl showdown, with
the old guy having the chance
to unseat the young gun-
slinger?
Here's to hoping Favre
doesn't decide to hang the
cleats up for good. He's bound
to have at least one more
Super Bowl run in him...
Former University of
Georgia great Herschel
Walker is close to releasing a
book that will reveal his bout
with multiple personality dis-
order, which is a rare mental
condition in which one person
has two or more distinct per-
sonalities, according to the
Merck Manual of Medical
Information. Before Florida
fans make light of the situa-
tion, they should remember
this: If Walker has three per-
sonalities, they rushed for 238
yards, 192 yards and 219
yards respectively against the
Gators from 1980-82 ...
How long before new
University of Kentucky bas-
ketball coach Billy Gillespie,
whose team dropped to 7-9
after a nationally televised,
seventh straight loss to
Florida Saturday, is run out of
town? If Wildcats venting on
message boards are any indi-
cation, not long at all. Below is
a sample of some in-house
fighting taking place on the
Internet:
Kentucky Fan 1: "Even
(former Kentucky head
coach) Tubby (Smith) didn't
get his tail kicked by Gardner-
Webb."
Kentucky Fan 2: "No,
Tubby got his tail kicked by
the crazy UK fans! Billy G. is

News Leader
The Hornets visited the Pirates Friday night for the
second meeting of the two varsity boys basketball
teams. Once again, the Pirates came out on top, win-
ning 72-59.
The Pirates led 16-8 after the first quarter and 39-
25 at halftime, but the Hornets rallied in the third
quarter, cutting the lead to three (47-44) with 2:11 left
and then to one (47-46) with 1:32 remaining. Yulee
outscored the Pirates 24-17 in the third quarter.
"I'm proud of our effort versus Fernandina, but we
just need to continue to work on the little things, like
being smart defensively and making free-throws,"
said Robert Barrow, Yulee High School boys basket-
ball coach. "When you go 9-of-23 from the free-throw
line (as we did) against a good team like Fernandina,
you won't have much chance of winning.
"Despite poor free-throw shooting, we were only
down by six points with two minutes left. Fernandina
then hit their free-throws late once we had to foul to
finish the game."
The Pirates shot 64 percent from the foul line.
Jake Brogdon, who led the Pirates with 19 points,
was 6-for-6 on foul shots. Carlos Holcey, who had 13
points on the night, was 5-of-8 and Matt Brown was 3-
of-5 in free-throw shooting and was in double figures
with 10 points.
Trey Kublbock finished with nine points and 13
rebounds. Holcey also had five rebounds, two assists
and two steals and Brogdon had three assists. Zach
Rocheleau was credited with five assists. Andrew
Vrancic and Patrick Garvin had four rebounds each.
"I think the reason this game was more competi-
tive than the first game was that they had more of a
presence in the post," FBHS Coach Matt Schreiber
said. "They actually out-rebounded us (43-38) and
not many teams have done that."
Demetrius Small led Yulee with 29 points. Jarell
Mitchell and Ed Jones had 11 points apiece.
"For us to be successful we need all four of our
scorers to be productive," Barrow said. "We've only
had one or two of those four scorers on their game dur-
ing this three-game losing streak. This is a game of
momentum, so hopefully we can get back on track and
regain some of the momentum we had the first half
of the season."
Both Yulee and Fernandina Beach are 5-3 in the
district and FBHS has the edge in district seeding.
"We will be seeded higher because we beat them,"
Schreiber said.
The Pirates (13-6) traveled to West Nassau Tuesday
and play at Bolles Thursday. They host Bishop Snyder
Friday. The Hornets (7-9) hosted University Christian
Tuesday and play host to West Nassau Thursday.
They travel to Bolles Friday. Varsity games are at
7:30 p.m.
* Before the varsity tip-off, the junior varsity squads
clashed on the court. The Pirates pushed their record
to 14-2 with a 65-30 win.
Five FBHS players were in double figures. Tai
Alford led with 14 and Cordell Shelby, Bobby
Severance and Geanta Wright had 11 points apiece.
Billy Hunt had 10 and James Russell chipped in eight.

Lacoss shoots 78 to take



individual honors in blitz


Northern Florida must have decided to make
our northern friends feel right at home as the rain,
wind and cool weather was enough to cancel the
Wednesday blitz and the Saturday Morning
Breakfast Mixer last week.
Although Friday was still a bit chilly, 61 players
turned out to play the West and North courses in
the men's blitz at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
The scoring was not all that great, even though
Terry Lacoss took individual honors with a 78 and
plus 10 points. Chris Cheshire had a 92 and plus 9
to take second place. There was a tie for third
place at plus 5 between Bill Larrabee (91) and Jim
McFarland (98).
There was a tie for first place teamwise at plus 6
between the teams of Lacoss (plus 10), Tommy
Purvis (88, plus 1), Ron Peterson (87, even), EW.
Nobles (89, minus 5) and Cheshire (plus 9), Jim
Robertson (87, plus 2), Doug Wolfe (87, minus 1)
and Sam DuBose (97, minus 4).
Third place at plus 4 went to the team of Bob
Riley (82, plus 1),John Bray (82, plus 2), Dennis
Sassenger (83, plus 2) and Jim Roberts (78, minus
1). In fourth place at plus 3 was the team of Jim
Raffone (85, plus 3), Roger Arsenault (102, plus 1),
Abjorn Tefre (91, plus 1) and Frank Finocchio (88,
minus 2).

Pink Links
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 sur-
vivors get involved with the game of golf while
socializing with other survivors. The ultimate goal
is to provide breast cancer survivors with an envi-
ronment 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 walking.

friends, co-workers, relatives or the breast cancer
survivors themselves. The deadline for nomina-
tions for the next session 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 session
will be kept on file for future sessions.
Each session is designed around three levels of
instruction. 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,

ED HARDEE/SPECIAL
Paul Massing's lady pirate, which was displayed at the Island Art Association gallery but has
since been sold, will grace the T-shirts for the Pirates on the Run 5K/10K Feb. 2.



Massing's design on race shirts


ED HARDEE
For the News-Leader


Pirates will be roaming, and
running, the streets of Fernandina
Beach as the Pirates on the Run
5K/10K returns Feb. 2. Each year
the event grows larger and more
festive, with refreshments and door
prizes for participants, a disc jock-
ey and even Mardi Gras beads
from the pirates. A two-mile walk
and fun runs for children will also
be held.
Especially popular last year
were the long-sleeve T-shirts for
preregistered runners and walk-
ers, which featured a pirate's por-
trait. The T-shirt design repro-
duced an original oil painting by
local artist Paul Massing.
This year's long-sleeve T-shirts
will showcase another in Massing's
gallery of swashbuckling subjects
- and this time with a twist.
Instead of a scowling buccaneer
with a thick black beard, the por-
trait depicts an auburn-haired lass
with a parrot on her shoulder
against a fiery orange background.
That's right - a "lady pirate."
And while history records that
there were indeed female pirates,
it's also clear that they were any-
thing but ladylike.
"Anne Bonney is one that many
people talk about," says Thea
Seagraves of the Amelia Island
Museum of History. "Women were
pirates too, and they could be just
as fierce and mean and scalawags
as the guys. Sometimes a lot more.
They were able to get more of their


power across because the men
wouldn't expect them to be so ruth-
less."
Seagraves has developed her
own pirate "character" for Museum
of History events, not a real-life
historical figure but one whose per-
sonality is loosely based on
Bonney's.
"She was to be married off to a
pirate here, but he ended up get-
ting killed searching for treasure in
Egans Creek." As for "lady pirates"
in Fernandina's past, she says, "any
who came through here must not
have been bad enough. Nobody
remembers them."
Massing says his pirate lass was
originally based on a live model
who sat as a belly dancer for the
Island Art Association's drawing
workshops.
"I asked her to sit for a session
as a pirate after seeing her in cos-
tume at the Shrimp Festival," he
said.
He later altered the likeness
and added the parrot as an after-
thought, after seeing a neighbor
walking her dogs with a bird on
her shoulder.
"She was glad to have a sitting
where I sketched Ace, the parrot,"
he said.
Massing says he got an excel-
lent response last year from run-
ners and others who saw his pirate
on the 2007 race T-shirts.
"Incidentally, I wore my shirt
during the weekend of my 60th
high school reunion in Niagara
Falls this past August, with many
good comments," he says. "Some


were, 'Where did you get that shirt,
can you get me one?'"
Runners and walkers can get
their own copies of the 2008 shirt
if they preregister for the 5K/10K,
two-mile walk or kids' runs.
Registration forms are available
at Club 14 Fitness, South 14th
Street, or Red Otter Outfitters,
Atlantic Avenue, and atwww.amelia
islandrunners.com, where partici-
pants may also register online.
Runners and walkers who prereg-
ister by Jan. 25 receive a discount
and the deadline to preregister is
Jan. 31. Shirts will be available
while supplies last during race-day
registration from 7-8 a.m.
The event gets under way at
8:30 a.m. Feb. 2 from Fernandina
Beach City Hall, 224 Ash St. Walk-
ers and runners will enjoy a course
through historic downtown with
buccaneers from the Fernandina
Beach Pirates Club in full regalia to
help point the way. Runners who
opt for the 10K (6.2-mile) distance
will also head out Atlantic Avenue
to the beach and back.
The noncompetitive two-mile
walk starts right after the 5K/10K
races start, followed by half-mile
and one-mile kids' runs at 9:45 a.m.
An awards ceremony with refresh-
ments, door prizes and plaques for
5K/10K runners will be held after
the kids' runs at City Hall.
Proceeds from the event will
benefit youth running in this area,
including Girls on the Run of N.E.
Florida and a scholarship program
for Nassau County high school run-
ners.


Although the days have been
colder, it has been no deterrent
for tennis at the Yulee Sports
Complex. It is not odd to see bun-
dled-up parents watching clinics,
private lessons and challenge
matches in windy conditions at
the courts.
The ladder continues with
some changes near the top. Josh
Nelson defeated Trevor Holden
to take the No. 3 position while
Mikey Mott successfully chal-
lenged Nelson to quickly move
up to No. 3. The top of the ladder
is led by No. 1 Joe Mc Donald,
No. 2 Josh Hopper, No. 3 Mikey
Mott, No. 4 Josh Nelson, No. 5
Trevor Holden, No. 6 Alex Mott,
No. 7 James Harmon, No. 8
Zarek Lamere, No. 9 Wyatt
Glounder and No. 10 Kaylee
Moore. The ladder is open to any
junior wishing to take part in
match play.
The Nassau County juniors
have an interest in playing the
USTA-sanctioned tournaments
that are being held in
Jacksonville.
The event at Las Palmas was
postponed this past weekend due
to rain and cold weather, but will
be rescheduled in March.
Another junior tournament is
scheduled for Feb. 16-18 at
Queen's Harbour in Jacksonville
in which the Yulee Tennis
Foundation plans to have players
test their skills against other


players from around the state.
Feb 8 is the deadline to apply
for a scholarship through the
USTATennis & Education
Foundation.
These scholarships are an
opportunity for children in
grades 6-12 who are in need of
financial assistance for local ten-
nis expenses and scholarship
funds for continuing education
beyond high school.
The documents are posted on
the USTAwebsite under commu-
nity tennis,www.usatennisflor
ida.usta.com.
Clinics are held from 4-5 p.m.
Monday, Tuesdays and
Thursday and from 2-6 p.m.
Wednesday. Private lessons are
available by appointment at any-
time. Call Vishnu Maharaj at
(904) 524-0243 for information on
any of the tennis programs.
The Yulee Tennis Foundation
and USTA Florida continue to
promote Tennis in the Schools.
Plans are to offer tennis in physi-
cal classes with new curriculum
and training programs designed
for RE. teachers. Tennis in the
Schools meets the FCAT guide-
lines, and equipment and instruc-
tion are free. A recreation coach-
es workshop will be held locally
for all PE. teachers.
The mission of the Yulee
Tennis Foundation is to promote
tennis throughout Nassau
County.

ft This week, lets discuss the proper
way to hold your club. Your grip
should be in the fingers of both hands,
not the palms. Most of the grip pres-
sure should be felt in the last three fin-
gers of your left hand. There is much
Less pressure in the right hand. There
should be no pressure at all in the thumb and forefin-
ger of the right hand. Keep your overall grip pressure
light. Don't "squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube."
Make sure your grip is strong enough, with both V's
pointing over your right shoulder. Astong left hand grip
produces solid shots. Keep hands close together. For
low ball flight, keep grip pressure firm throughout
swing. To promote a fade, keep left grip firm and right
grip light. When putting, keep palms facing each other.
For better accuracy when putting, make both V's in
your grip point to your chin.


Based on the new change to the USGA's Rules of Golf, the governing body of golf
now allows for a golf club to be adjustable, beyond traditional weight adjustment.
This decision introduces a new dimension to golf club innovation, ranging from ~ \N-
diverse club fitting options to interchangeable golf shafts and club matching designed x,__- --
to address different playing conditions. "The significance of the adjustable club ruling is
that it gives the average player the opportunity to enjoy the same benefits as Tour players
enjoy," said the USGA's Dick Rugge. Callaway unveiled their I-Mix system at the PGA Merchandise
Show. The clubhead and shaft tip have been threaded with a unique thread pattern. A special wrench
tightens them together. Now the average player can have shafts switched out in a matter of minutes or
clubs changed to suit the conditions or the way they are swinging.

OUTDOORS


Winter shark




encounters


"It was definitely the largest
shark that I have ever seen in my
20-plus years of fishing from
Amelia Island," Capt. Ben
Forehand said. 'That big shark
just sat there, only a few feet
from our 'Miss Lucy' charter
boat and stared at me like it was
the king of the ocean and what
was I going to do about it."
It was a typical winter charter
fishing trip for Forehand, as he
departed the Fernandina Beach
Harbor Marina for an afternoon
of offshore bottom fishing with
his party of six fishermen.
Forehand added excitement for
his charter by describing a star-
studded list of Amelia Island
game fish that would not only put
up a respectable fight, but also
offer excellent table fare.
Once anchored at one of
Forehand's favorite FA live bot-
tom reefs, his customers were
handed stout bottom fishing
tackle and baited up with fresh
local squid.
A typical cast of reef species
was on hand and willing to chal-
lenge the fishing party's angling
skills. It wasn't long before bait-
ed hooks were savagely
attacked, causing fishermen to
make head-jarring hook sets,
which were followed by gamey
fish fights at sea.
Then it happened, a deeply
bent bottom fishing rod pro-
duced a nice keeper gag grouper,
which was now struggling des-
perately on the surface for its
freedom.
"We all applauded the nice
grouper that I was just about to
secure with my hand gaff,"
Forehand said. "Suddenly we all
stared eyeball to eyeball into the
serious eyes of an 800-pound-
plus great white shark. That big
shark made two passes at the
hooked grouper, then disap-
peared from sight, leaving every-
one on board speechless."
Great white shark sightings
have been somewhat rare off the


coast of
Northeast
Florida, but
there has
been some
talk among
fishermen
who spend
time on the
water that
Terry Lacoss great white
sharks are
..... following
OUTDOORS right wale
migrations.
And with good reason, because
once the calves are born, they
become an easy meal for great
white sharks that could weigh
well over 1,000 pounds.
Two other great white shark
encounters were made during
past winter fishing seasons off
Amelia Island. Capt. Allen Mills,
skipper of the locally based char-
ter boat, the "Wahoo," also had a
large great white shark attack a
guest's hooked grouper. In fact,
the 10-foot-plus great white
shark came leaping from the
water after the tiring grouper,
resulting in a big splash just a
few feet from the transom of the
local sport fishing boat. The ter-
rifying scene left the captain and
fishing party soaking wet and
speechless.
'The next time I have an off-
shore fishing charter, I'm bring-
ing along some super heavy fish-
ing tackle and a big frozen
bonito," Mills said. "Before we
drop down our bottom gear, I
plan on trolling that dead bonito
over the ledge to see if we can
hook up to that great white shark
that the 'Miss Lucy' charter boat
recently encountered."
Well-known bottom fishermen
Steve Collins and Steve Dunn
also sighted a great white shark
during a past Amelia Island drift
fishing trip. Several winter fish-
ing seasons ago, a Jacksonville
bottom fishing party actually
caught a 500-pound great white


shark while fishing at Georgia's
Forty-Mile Bottom.
Catching an 800-pound great
white shark would definitely be
cause for celebration.

Pittman, Flynnwin
'The morning was foggy and
raining," Danny Flynn said.
"Worse yet, my fishing partner
Bill Pittman and I had not had


the first hint of catching a tourna-
ment redfish. However, when the
tide began to flood the grass, our
fishing action dramatically
improved."
The Fernandina Beach-based
redfish team was competing in
the IFA Florida Lure Anglers
redfish tournament recently,
which was held from
Jacksonville's Sisters Creek

Marina.
"As the tide began to flood the
marshes, we were able to get our
redfish boat into the flooded
marsh and make long casts into
the spartina grasses," Flynn said.
"Right away, Bill hooked and
landed a nice red with a spinner.
While I was placing the red in
our boat's livewell, Bill hooked a
second big red and quickly land-


ed the keeper redfish. Within a
few minutes of fishing time, we
had close to 13 pounds of redfish
in our livewell."
Pittman and Flynn went on to
win the event and some $2,500 in
prize monies. A second event is
planned for next month in
Fernandina Beach. Call Bob

NASSAU'S WRESTLERS


PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Yulee High School's wrestlers hosted Middleburg Thursday
and lost 44-30. "Middleburg has a solid program, so that
was a pretty good showing for us," YMS Coach Michael Carty
said. "We still haven't turned the corner quite yet in terms of
closing out the tight matches and that was a winable match.
We've progressed to the point where we're competitive in the
swing matches." Above, Damon Dennis pinned his oppo-
nent.


Fernandina Beach High School wrestler Tanner Lee (130
pounds) pinned his First Coast opponent in 1:26 Saturday
when the Pirate grapplers hosted First Coast and Episcopal.
The Pirates defeated First Coast 46-22 and also defeated
Episcopal. The Pirates wrestle next in the district tournament
at Episcopal Feb. 2.

George Shepard, above, collected his 50th career win
Thursday. He is 50-9 in nearly two seasons. Below, Mike
Didion pinned his foe in seconds. "James Blocker weighed
in at 103, but we bumped him up to neutralize one of their
better guys," Carty said. "A talented wrestler like James
gives us the flexibility to try to steal some extra team points
like that. We figure it's better to earn bonus points through
mat victories than to trade points in forfeits. In this scenario,
it was a no-lose situation, despite Blocker losing the close
battle at 112 pounds." Yulee wrestles at Episcopal today, at
Glynn Academy Thursday and at home Friday with Bradford.


Pirate Sean Watkins, above, won by pin in 4:09 in the 145-
pound class. Teammate Mitch Haley, below, lost by decision
13-9 in the 160-pound class.

one of our New
Year's resolutions -
our morning walk. It
requires no equipment and costs
no money. It is the simplest of
pleasures - a walk with the Big
Guy. It is our time to catch up and
determine agendas. It is more
often around our neighborhood
but can also be on one of the
island's beautiful, soulful beach-
es.
Before the noise and lists of
the day begin we push each other
out the door. After a quick cup of
coffee and a scan of the paper, we
are on our way. We watch the sea-
sons change and as we do our
neighborhood inspection. Who is
building. Who is renovating. Who
is moving. Its our unofficial cen-


Dickie Anderson

FROM THE
PORCH


sus.
Our
morning
walks are
sometimes
the only
time we
see many
of our
neighbors.
Some are
out walk-
ing or they
pass us on
their way
to and from
work and
school. We


often trade chatter about the
weather or during football season
Big Guy might offer, "How about
them Dawgs?"


We use our neighborhood
walks as an opportunity to do an
informal survey of the local real
estate market, all the while ration-
alizing that the value of our house
is going up by the minute. Yes, it
has slowed, but it will rise again.
We marvel at the continued ebb
and flow of our island neighbor-
hood. For sale signs come and
go. We try and keep up but
depend on realtor friends to give
us the scoop.
We do a little roadside cleanup
as we go. The amount of clutter is
a direct reflection of the amount
of building that is being done.
Fortunately or unfortunately the
beer bottle barometer has been
way down, which means there
isn't in a building. We think the
trash is teen trash. I can assure


you that none of the consumables
are on any food pyramid - the old
one or the new one.
If you want to get really seri-
ous about walking you can pur-
chase a pedometers and log your
steps. It should be at least 10,000
steps a day. To give you a compar-
ison a sedentary person walks
1,000 to 3,000 steps a day and
probably back and forth to the
refrigerator. There are lots of
ways to add steps to your daily
routine. Take stairs instead of ele-
vators. Park your car as far away
as possible from the shopping
center and walk to the store
where you plan to shop. Treat
your furry friends to walks
instead of just pushing them out
the door. Get up and change the
television channel instead of


using the remote. Do more gar-
den work. Have regular date with
a friend and instead of that cup of
coffee walk as you catch up with
each other.
So far in this new year we are
keeping our morning date and
walking every morning. As the
weather warms we will add beach
walks and begin our search for
the elusive shark teeth we like to
collect. On a hot day a walk at the
edge of the surf with cool water
washing over your feet is treat.
Yes, sometimes the simple
pleasures are the very best and
can even be good for you.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your
comments at dickie@dickieander-

local book and gift stores or on line

Christmas cheer
Bicycles await children as the Journey Church prepared its Christmas giveaway to needy fami-

Bellar challenged members to put together a program that would ensure all families on the East
Side would have a Merry Christmas. On the weekend before Christmas, families (who were pre-
registered) were given a specific time to arrive at a location on Sadler Road where each child
received either a new bicycle, new skateboard or an iPod. Each family got groceries, a 10-pound
turkey, clothes and shoes.

Restaurants help in face of library cutbacks

Two local restaurants are donat-

Critics wanted for


festival selections


RON MILLER
For theNews Leader

The Fernandina Beach branch
library has joined the Amelia
Island Book Festival in the selec-
tion process for authors who wish
to be considered for the October
2008 event.
Books are submitted to Author
and Book Review Coordinator
Attavia Facciolo. Attavia will then
deliver the books to the library,
which will make them available
to the public for review.
Dawn Bostwick, library direc-
tor, has set aside a special section
in the library for all of the books
that will be submitted. "It's a great
program and great opportunity
for the library to join the festival,"
said Bostwick. Between now and
the end of March the public can
check out a book for up to two
weeks, read and offer a review.
Books can also be put on hold.
An evaluation form will be pro-
vided with each book. This will
help the festival board decide
which author to extend an invita-
tion to by determining which


books are the most popular with
the reader.
In addition a Readers'
Committee will be formed. This
committee will be composed of
readers in the community who
wish to offer regular evaluations
as books are submitted by the
authors. The genres includes
Fiction, Non-Fiction, Mystery,
Young Adult/Children and
Poetry. The books will be located
in the "CD" section of the library
and will be marked by a yellow
sticker on the cover labeled "Book
Review."
Children under 16 may check
out books using their parent's
library card. The library asks that
all reviewed books, along with
evaluation forms, be returned
inside the library instead of using
the book drop. This will allow the
books to be promptly placed back
into the review section.
For more information contact
Facciolo at 491-7646 or e-mail
Attavia@bellsouth.net. You may
also contact the Fernandina
Beach branch library at 277-7365.
Books are now available.


ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL


I am a beagle mix who is
heart worm positive and
needs a foster home or a for-
ever home so that I can start
my treatment and get better.
I am a bit older than most of
the dogs here but not too
old. I usually hang out in the
laundry area with my shelter
moms and watch them fold
all of our clean bedding and
pillows. In fact I like to
snuggle up on some of the
blankets as they come out of
the dryer. I am very sweet
and friendly and would love
to have a place to call home.
Come by and visit me any-
time. You can even ask to
take me for a walk and we
can get to know one another.
Just ask for Peanut.
Have you ever seen two
cuter brothers than this?
Dasher and Comet are look-
ing for a place to call home.
They both have all of their
shots and are both neutered.


They are 5-month-old
domestic long hair kittens.
Their sister Dancer is also at
the shelter and all three
would love to find a home.
Imagine curling up with a
good book and having one of
these fellows next to you
purring away and keeping
you company. Stop by the
shelter and have a look.
The shelter is located on
license Road in Yulee. For
more information call 225-
0006 or visit www.Nassau
Animal.petfinder.com.


My name is Trent and I
am a sweet little guy waiting
for my new home. My tem-
porary home is at the Cats
Angels Adoption Center,
which has lots of cats and
kittens available for adop-
tion. We are all tested,
spayed/neutered and cur-
rent on our vaccines. Please
stop by and see us or call
321-2267. The volunteers
will take us to an offsite
adoption this weekend at
River City PetsMart - Satur-
day will be 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
and Sunday from 11 a.m.-5
p.m. and at the St. John's
Town Center. Our kitties are
also available for adoption at
the new Petco Store on A1A.
The Cats Angels Thrift
Store is open Monday-
Saturday from 11 a.m.-5
p.m. with specials every day
of the week! We are looking
for volunteers in our store
and adoption center. Please
stop by and see Miss Janet
for the store and Miss Nancy
for the adoption center or


call 321-2267.
Spring will be here soon.
Let's all do our part to make
this a better one by spaying
and neutering your animals
before they produce a litter.
Call Spay Nassau at (904)
425-0005 for free or low-
cost spaying/neutering. If
you don't qualify, call Cats
Angels at 321-2267 to dis-
cuss options. A big thank
you to Dr. Sheila Norstrud
and Dr. Ken for the special
spay day Sunday in which
26 cats were spayed/neuter-
ed and vaccinated!


STARS


Our sweet "Angel" is a 6-
month-old, female, 10-
pound, Chihuahua/terrier
mix with the most beautiful
gray/green eyes. You have to
see them to believe them!
The STARS family of vol-
unteers would like to thank
Gigi of Amelia's Fine
Jewelry, 317 Centre St., for
her generous donation from
the proceeds of her Simon G
Jewelry tunk show. Please
stop by and tell Gigi how
much you appreciate her
helping our abandoned furry
friends and treat yourself to
a beautiful Valentine's Day
gift for yourself!
Save the Animals Rescue

NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


My name is Harriet and I
am as cute as they come. I
am about 8 months old and
a perfect medium size. I
have a sister named Sally
and we bunk with some
other pups. We have a ball
playing outside during the
day with toys and love treat
time because that means it
is time to get tucked into
bed! I am very sweet and
would love a family to call
my own. Come by and meet
me, please!
I am a great kitty in need
of a forever home! I have
beautiful pastel colors and a
terrific personality.
Sometimes they let me run
around the cattery all night
and I immediately run and
play hide and seek in the
play tunnels! Won't you
come and meet me? You
cannot forget my unique
name - Beans!
Harriet, Beans and many
other wonderful pets are
available for adoption at the
Nassau Humane Society
