School board:



Evolution is



not a fact'


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
The Nassau County School
Board will ask state education offi-
cials to revise science standards
"so that evolution is not presented
as fact."
Nassau follows other districts
in approving a similar resolution.
Board members voted unani-
mously Thursday to adopt the res-
olution recommended by Schools
Superintendent John Ruis. The res-
olution opposes the draft Sunshine
State Standards for science. It urges
the standards be changed "such
that evolution is not presented at
the exclusion of other theories of
origin of life."
The draft standards "no longer
present evolution as theory" but as
"the fundamental concept underly-
ing all of biology and is supported
in multiple forms of scientific evi-
dence," reads a quote from the stan-
dards included in the resolution.
Ruis read the resolution aloud


and made no fur-
ther comment
during the meet-
ing. No discus-
sion of the reso-
lution followed.
Board members
Gail Cook and
Ruis Janet Adkins
asked the super-
intendent to for-
ward the resolution to the Florida
Legislature, in addition to the state
board of education.
"I was hoping they had heard
enough" from the public "that we
wouldn't have to do this," Cook
said.
The state board will meet Feb.
19 in Tallahassee to consider the
science standards.
"It really is the board's decision,"
said Mary Jane Tappan, executive
director of the Florida Office of
Math and Science. The office
"stayed true to the process," she

Animal Control



budget up 70%?
SIAN PERRY Hallman, Clerk
News-Leader of Court John


Sheriff Tommy Seagraves has
offered Nassau County Commis-
sioners a way out of "crisis mode"
at Animal Control - at a cost of
$939,398.
That's 70 percent more than the
current Animal Control budget of
$551,546, and it left commission-
ers asking how they are going to
come up with that kind of money
when taxes may be cut depending
on the outcome of Tuesday's vote
on Amendment 1.
"That's why we didn't all raise
our hands and say, 'Let's do this!'
Even if it's the greatest plan going,
we're going to have to find those
dollars," said Commissioner Mike
Boyle, speaking to the notably
muted response of his colleagues
to the proposal Monday night.
The commission instead passed
a motion to form a committee to
include County Attorney David

Crawford's
office, County
Coordinator Ed

meeting Feb. 13.
That left many in the packed
audience asking what happened,
and frustrated the process is not
moving forward more quickly
three months after Brenda
Rothwell was removed as director
of the facility over allegations of
gross mismanagement.
Seagraves is proposing an
Animal Control director at a salary
of $60,000 to oversee the entire

St. Michael Academy celebrates legacy


KATHLEEN M. O'BRIEN
For the News-Leader

cipal of St. Michael
Academy, sits behind her
desk proudly watching
"(her) children" file past the
office door, each child waving as
they pass. Heidi, her rescued
schnauzer, sits attentively at her
side.
She and St. Michael Academy
have much to be proud of these
days. 2008 marks the 10-year
anniversary since reopening in
1998. They recently learned their
school scores place them in the
top fifth of the nation academical-
ly and their boys' soccer team
has a chance at the playoffs. 2008
also marks the school's 100-year
legacy of educating the Christian
youth of Fernandina Beach.
This history began following
the Civil War. Bishop Augustine
Verot, the first Bishop of Florida,
requested help from his native
France for the "spiritually" suffer-
ing people in his dioceses and
the newly freed slaves. Six
Sisters were chosen to begin the


mission work. In 1871, after an
ocean voyage of five weeks, the
Sisters of St. Joseph arrived in
the "wilds" of America.
Two of the Sisters were dis-
patched from Jacksonville to
Amelia Island: Sisters Celine and
Helen. Eventually they grew to
include four more. They formed
a small school, initially for the
children of the newly freed
slaves, and then expanded to a
small cottage near the church to
include children of all races and
faiths. Their commitment to edu-
cation began a strong bond with
the community.
In 1877, after bravely nursing
and too often burying the victims
of the town's yellow fever epi-
demic, the Sisters became local
heroines. Two of the nuns caught
the fever but recovered; two
Sisters, however, died. The com-
munity rallied around the nuns,
calling them their "Angels of
Mercy," and helping them raise
money to build what was called
by the newspaper "a very fine
building, one that will be an orna-

Fort Clinch fishing pier closed for repairs


PAT FOSTER-TURLEY
For the News Leader
The half-mile-long fishing pier
at Fort Clinch State Park is under-
going extensive renovations and
will be closed to the public from
now through the fall.
The present pier, built in 1979,
needs major structural work to the
pilings, the concrete spans, rail-
ings and decks to a tune of about
$1.5 million.
All pilings supporting the pier
will be inspected, repaired and
replaced, if necessary, by workers
from a barge alongside the struc-
ture. The 80 30-foot-long concrete

ager, outreach manager, four shel-
ter assistants, two office assistants,
an accountant/records clerk and a
veterinary technician for total
salaries of $469,000 for 2007-8.
He devised the proposal after
forming a committee including
Lynda Mixson of Rescuing
Animals in Nassau, Sheriff's Office
Attorney Marlyne Clark and David
R. Flagler, former division chief of
Jacksonville Animal Care and
Control, among others. He did not
include the county's most long-
standing and established rescue
groups such as Cats Angels Inc.,
SPCA, the Nassau Humane Society
or STARS, a fact that Boyle ques-
tioned.
While RAIN had submitted a
proposal to take over the shelter
under contract, Seagraves said
Mixson withdrew that after seeing
the direction he was taking.
Flagler, an Animal Control vet-
eran who has headed agencies
such as the Southern Hope
Humane Society in Atlanta and
managed multimillion-dollar budg-
ets, applied in mid-December for
the director position, but said
Monday night whether he gets the
job will be up to Seagraves.
Currently he is offering his serv-
ices as a consultant after coming on
board with the sheriff's commit-
tee last week.
According to Flagler's esti-
mates, 'The animal intake rate is
three to four times greater (per
capital) than neighboring Duval
County. The facility is of insuffi-
cient size to address this influx of
animals and as a result, Animal
Control staff has been unable to
provide a healthy and humane
place for these animals."
He noted in the proposal, "With
adequate funding and the proper
staff, Sheriff Seagraves believes
that he can turn the animal con-
trol organization around and the
county can become proud of its
new animal control program."
"Those are two major caveats,"
said Boyle. "It's whether we can
do that and how we go about doing
that."

spans forming the pier's surface
will also be repaired. New
guardrails, handrails and the
boardwalk to the pier will be
replaced with environmentally
friendly recyclable materials, and
stainless steel fastenings will be
used to cut down on future main-
tenance needs.
The rehabbed new pier and
access to it will meet American

"Whatever happens tomorrow
may change the whole world for
us," said Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham, referring to the
Amendment 1 vote, but added, "We
need to take care of our animals."
"We all knew in the county that
something had to be done," said
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall. "I always said you were
the one with the gun," she added,
noting the sheriff's office often is
the first on the scene at Animal
Control calls.
Seagraves stressed that edu-
cating the public about spaying
and neutering, licensing their pets
and obeying Animal Control laws is
a big part of his proposal, along
with creating a strong adoption
program.
"That's why we are getting to
the circumstances where we are
now," he said, referring to irre-
sponsible pet owners. "If we can
get to a no kill facility - only on an
as-needed basis - that's where we
want to get to," he said.
That also will require an over-
haul of current ordinances, he said,


remain open. The annual Free Kids
Fishing Clinic, normally hosted by
Fort Clinch State Park, will be held
this year at the George Crady
Fishing Pier of Talbot Islands State
Park on June 14.
Fort Clinch State Park Manager
Peter Scalco apologized for the
inconvenience to the public, but
says that the work needed to be
done at some time and is best
begun in the winter season when
the pier has the lowest public use.
In the end, 'The public will have a
much improved, safer and univer-
sally accessible recreational expe-
rience by the Thanksgiving holi-
day," he said.


characterizing them as outdated
and even not enforceable in some
cases. The committee formed by
the commission Monday night is
charged with studying that issue.
"It always comes down to
money and I'm glad that you men-
tioned getting the Animal Control
facility in an enterprise situation,"
said Commissioner Tom Branan
of beefing up licensing fees and
ordinances.
"At one time we used to have an
outstanding facility out there ... to
see it in the condition it's in today
is totally our fault, per se, and we
would like to get it back to the point
where it was," he said. "Let's get
this show on the road - I'm glad
you're stepping up to the plate in an
election year," added Brannan, him-
self up for election this year along
with Higginbotham, Marshall and
Seagraves.
"Just because it's an election
year doesn't mean you don't do
the right thing," said Seagraves.
"My integrity is that I am going
to do 100 percent."

said about the draft.
Cheryl Etters, spokeswoman for
the Florida Department of Educa-
tion, said the independent teachers
and science professionals who draft-
ed the standards are reviewing "spe-
cific and broad comments" from
the public to determine "if they can
be applied" to the standards.
The education department con-
ducted four public hearings on the
science standards, including one
Jan. 3 in Jacksonville at the Schultz
Center for Teaching and
Leadership, Etters said.
The final revised standards will
be available for public review online
in about two weeks, Tappan said.
"We need to bring about letting
the students think," Jacksonville
resident David Ramseur said.
Ramseur told the school board
he has served on the state's sci-
ence textbook adoption committee
and attended the meeting "to sup-
port the board," he said.
"What we want our students to
do is to be problem solvers, not to
be taught a dogmatic position,"
Ramseur said. "We want them to
be able to think and be great sci-
entists."
"We come as neighbors to speak
from Duval County," said Marjorie
Ramseur. "We're glad that you all
are interested enough to take a
stand and to act on a resolution in
this regard."
She said evolution is an
unproven theory "that must be
taught with its shortcomings... to
allow the student to analyze and
criticize." And she added, "We are


Science benchmarks
This language is proposed in draft revisions to Sunshine State
Standards for science, evolution and diversity being considered for
various grades by the state.
* Kindergarten: "Observe and describe similarities and differ-
ences among different types of plants and among different types of
animals."
* Second: "Differentiate between living and non-living things;
Recognize some organisms that lived long ago are similar to existing
organisms today, but some have completely disappeared; Observe
and describe the major life cycle stages of plants and animals,
including lima beans and butterflies; Recognize and explain that liv-
ing things are found almost everywhere in the world with different
kinds in different places."
* 12th: "Explain how evolution is demonstrated by the fossil
record, extinction, comparative anatomy, comparative embryology,
biogeography, molecular biology crosscutss with Earth/space), and
observed evolutionary change; discuss the use of molecular clocks
to estimate how long ago various groups of organisms diverged evo-
lutionarily from one another; explain the reasons for changes in how
organisms are classified; compare and contrast organisms at king-
dom level; discuss distinguishing characteristics of major kingdoms, .
. Express scientific explanations of the origin of life on Earth."


not asking that creation or intelli-
gent design be taught in the class-
room. If you're going to teach evo-
lution, teach it all."
The revised standards are
"going to bring Florida into the 21st
century," said Joe Wolf, president of
Florida Citizens for Science.
'There are religious theories of
life and how it originated," he said.
"In science there aren't any others
accepted by the vast scientific com-
munity." Evolution has been tested
for more than a century and is "is
essentially the foundation of mod-
ern life sciences" and "the best
we've got at this time," Wolf said.
Evolution "is not about the origin
of life," he said. "That's a different


subject."
Writers of the Sunshine State
Standards for Science included
"Express scientific explanations of
the origin of life on Earth" as part of
the evolution and diversity bench-
mark for grade 12.
"You can't have a discussion
about evolution without having a
discussion about the origin of
species," Tappan said.
In the past, that discussion, of
"how we all got here," has been pre-
sented as theory, Ruis said Monday,
noting the absence of "any refer-
ence to any other theories or
beliefs" in the draft science stan-
dards. "The resolution expresses
the sentiment for all of us," he said.

A taxing future?


You have to wonder why an
impartial agency professed to be
an anti-tax watchdog would
oppose tax cuts.
Just maybe someone threw
this watchdog a bone.
In its latest stance, the influen-
tial body known as Florida Tax
Watch opposed the amendment
containing
various tax
cuts pro-
posed by
Gov. Charlie
Crist. The tax
cuts were
voted on
Tuesday as
an amend-
Sment to the
Steve state consti-
Nicklas tution.
According to
. ." polls, it
STEVE'S appeared the
MARKET state amend-
ment would
PLACE not garner
the required
votes for it to pass. It needed to
win at least 60 percent of the
votes.
The tax cuts endorsed by
Florida legislators endured hurri-
cane-force opposition from
unions, city and county employ-
ees and oxymoronic agencies
such as Florida Tax Watch.
Granted, this tax reform isn't the
perfect plan. But it's better than
the status quo.
Florida Tax Watch asserts the
tax cuts are "not true reform"
and that they are "likely to do
more harm than good." Spoken
like a flip-flopping, chameleon-
like, political organization.
It seems the Florida Tax
Watch folks are content watching
taxes rise. And, to top it off, they
proclaim themselves to be
defenders of "taxpayer value"
and "government accountability."
One way to make local offi-
cials accountable is to limit their
taxing authority. In this way, offi-
cials must do more with less.
This is the mantra of any suc-
cessful business. Improve and
streamline operations. Reduce
expenses and increase efficien-
cies. This will only occur when
the taxing power is restricted.
The "Save Our Homes" act
passed a decade ago by state leg-
islators intended to prevent high
taxes from driving residents
from their homes. It dictates the

of 3 percent per year.
Some feel the protective cap
is inequitable because it directs
the burden of tax increases on
businesses, second or vacation
homes and investment proper-
ties. But the proposal by Crist
included a cap for those other
properties, albeit not as signifi-
cant as the protection for home-
steaded properties.
It was something, however. It
was a move in the right direction.
If the amendment is voted down,
we are back to square one, with
only prior cuts this past fall hav-
ing been put into place.
The amendment was the sec-
ond part of a massive overhaul of
the Florida tax system. The first
part entailed mandatory roll-
backs of city and county tax
rates, with more to come in
future years. As unbelievable as
it may be, one-third of city and
county boards in Florida over-
rode the earlier cuts, contending
they have been pragmatic with
taxpayer dollars (a super-majori-
ty of a county or city commis-
sion, for instance, could override
those mandatory cuts).
Challenges in court are also like-
ly.
It'll be a shame if taxpayers
passed up their chance to have a
say in how taxing the future here
will become.

Carecenter
construction
Nassau Care Centers, Inc., a
not-for-profit organization, has
commenced construction in
Nassauville on nine 8-bedroom
homes for the developmentally
disabled.
These homes are to be
licensed as intermediate care
centers for the developmentally
disabled and will be occupied
by clients currently living in the
Amelia Island Care Center on
Atlantic Avenue in Fernandina
Beach.
The existing Amelia Island
Center was constructed in the
mid-1960s and is configured as
an institutional facility with
shared bedrooms. The new
homes will each be over 5,000
square feet and will offer a pri-
vate room for each of the devel-
opmentally disabled clients
along with family-style dining
and living-room options. The
clients served by AICC have
developmental needs requiring
assistance with activities of
daily living and mobility.
The project is projected to
be completed by September.
The current Amelia Island
Care Center will continue to be
utilized as administrative office
space as well as for day care
programming.

Forum to focus



on 'Good Growth'


"Get Good Growth: A Forum
for a Sustainable Nassau" is sched-
uled Feb. 9 in the Hampton Inn
and Suites in downtown
Fernandina Beach.
The forum seeks to balance
the interests of government, the
business community and citizens
regarding rapid growth in the
county and the region.
The forum will address how
other communities have been
tackling growth, addressing accel-
erating energy usage and costs,
utility strategies and evolving gov-
ernment policy to make their com-
munities better.
The forum will address neigh-
borhood standards developed by
the United States Green Building
Council - The Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design
(LEED) Green Building Rating
System for Neighborhood Deve-
lopment. LEED ND has a series of
principles that can be applied to
create communities that work for


the long term, providing less need
for the car, less use of energy and
improved community structure.
Examples of these kinds of neigh-
borhoods locally are Amelia Park,
downtown Fernandina Beach and
Amelia Island Plantation.
Community planners from
around the United States are
scheduled to participate in work-
shops throughout the day.
The Amelia Island/Fernandina
Beach/Yulee Chamber of Com-
merce has agreed to assist in spon-
soring this forum on sustainabili-
ty as an adjunct to its "Nassau
Visioning 2032" planning now
under way.
The conference is 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. Feb. 9 with registration at
8:30 a.m. Lunch is provided with
advance registration. Tickets are
$25, with a $5 discount if pur-
chased by Saturday. For informa-
tion call 491-0072 or e-mail local

Gator license plate tops


University of Florida


GAINESVILLE -Thanks to the
University of Florida specialty
license plate, more than 100,000
Florida drivers now have The
Gator Nation behind them wher-
ever they go.
The UF plate outsold every
contender and beat the second-
place plate, "Protect the Panther,"
by more than 20,000 sales last
year. Among universities, the clos-
est competitor was Florida State


University, which sold about
30,000 fewer plates.
The 105,361 sales spell good
news for the plate, which was
redesigned for 2007 with a Gator
Nation theme.
The extra $25 fee to purchase
or renew a Gator specialty plate
goes directly to UE Of that rev-
enue, 60 percent goes to scholar-
ships as distributed by the provost,
and 40 percent is used for the uni-
versity's general fundraising oper-
ation. UF received $2.6 million.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2008/NEWS-LEADER


VIEWPOINT/RoY STAFFORD/AMELIA ISLAND


Angry

Finally, the Democrats are
being exposed for what
they are, and I hope
through Barack Obama
that black folk will finally under-
stand what the Democrats have
done to them over all these years.
They have patronized them,
deceived them, enslaved them,
have held them down, destroyed
the black family and have become
their modern plantation slave
masters. And they did it con-
sciously and with venal intent - all
for their votes and the political
power base they derive from it.
Shame on them!
My father was in the Navy, but
I grew up in the Jim Crow South -
in fact, courtesy of the Navy, I
graduated from high school in
Meridian, Miss. My senior year in
high school, James Meredith inte-
grated the University of
Mississippi. It was tense times.
Half my class was locals and the
others were service brats like
myself. We service kids took a lot
of heat from the local kids and the
teachers - all of us had gone to
integrated schools near various
Navy bases throughout the world
and saw through the nonsense of
the segregationists.
We knew that black and white
could live together and thrive -
our fathers had proved it. The mil-
itary was the most integrated seg-
ment of this nation's society. Men
and women were truly gauged on
the content of their character and
work ethic - not the color of their
skin. My freshman year in col-
lege, three civil rights workers
were found buried in an earthen


white women


dam, just up the road from the
Meridian Naval Air Station where
we lived, only 15 miles away in
Philadelphia, Miss. It was no
longer tense - it was hard times -
violent times - but change was
coming.
When the Civil Rights Act was
passed the overwhelming majori-
ty of my generation celebrated
and felt good about the fact that in
our lifetime over 300 years of prej-
udice, abuse and denial was being
wiped out, once and for all - our
country would finally provide the
promise of the American Dream
to all our peoples, not just those
who were lily white and free.
We wanted black people to
have what we had - to enjoy the
promise of the American Dream -
to succeed, to rise above one's
station in life - to raise families
and ambitions through the re-
wards of hard work and sacrifice.
We wanted them to have it all.
And then it all went wrong.
Instead of improving schools
for both black and white - we
spent the money on busing.
Instead of holding onto aca-
demic standards, we lowered
them and engaged in the dumb-
ing down of America.
Instead of providing opportu-
nity -we got quotas, patronage
and nepotism.
Instead of uplifting and sup-
porting the black family - we
resorted to welfare and destroyed
it.
Instead of celebrating success
in the black community the
Democrats installed a litmus test
- that only those who toed the


party line were to be recognized.
If you don't believe me, ask
Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice and
Colin Powell.
The message to black people
was simple: You will only succeed
with our blessing and aid; if you
dare think as an individual we
will destroy you. Ah, the modern
plantation slave masters.
And now Barack Obama is
learning first-hand how far they
will go when even "one of their
own" has the temerity to try to
rise to the top. The Democrat
leadership is out in force, doing
the "dirty work" for the Clinton
machine - how dare this "uppity"
so-and-so think he can become
president. We will be the ones to
decide when the time is right.
It is classic Clinton tradition:
Tell a lie long enough and often
enough and gullible people will
believe it; accuse others of your
own faults and motivations -
there is no bottom to what level
they will stoop. And this black
man will discover that they have
determined he is off the planta-
tion - and needs to be put in his
place. You need look no further
than to Baracks' message of hope
- as opposed to the Clintons' mes-
sage of confrontation and dissimi-
lation and the politics of personal
destruction.
Divide and conquer.
They trot out prominent mem-
bers of the plantation to do their
dirty work - people of color who
attack one of their own for the
master's benefit. Implied infer-
ences to drug use and a convolut-
ed bastardization of his voting


DARYL CAGLE/CAGLE CARTOONS


record. While using these surro-
gates to do their dirty work they
(the Clintons) act aloof and make
like they had nothing to do with
it. And even Bill Clinton himself
has dropped code words and
inferences that if uttered by any
other politician would have been
considered racist or worse. Then
in classic Clinton fashion - they
try to convince us that what he
said and we all saw was not what
he said. That what Bob Kerry
said and was recorded was not
what he said. It goes on and on.
Reality - no black leader or
Democratic politician or operative
says or does anything without the
Clintons' guidance and direction.
Poor Barack is learning this les-

son first hand.
And it is my fervent hope that
black people will finally wake up
and realize that the modern plan-
tation slave owners (the Demo-
crats) are no different than the
slave masters of the past: They
only want to use you to hold on to
their power; they own you
through your vote; and if you dare
step out of line they will destroy
you and discard you like a leaf in
the wind.
Example: One of the Clinton
operatives floated the theory this
last week that the Latino voting
block was now surpassing the
black vote and could become the
new Democratic Party base. The
message is clear - stray off the

plantation and we will discard you
like yesterday's newspaper. Now
black people should understand
this - the threat is real and laid
out there and once they get an
amnesty bill passed you will be
replaced as their power base. You
will have been used and discard-
ed in the most shameful fashion.
In conclusion, I remember
reading something said by
Clarence Thomas when he was
head of the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission in
Washington. As he traveled
around this nation giving speech-
es he couldn't help but reflect that
as he looked out into the audi-
ences, instead of seeing mostly
people of color he saw a sea of
angry white women who had
never suffered a day of segrega-
tion or oppression. I assume it
was not lost on Mr. Thomas that
the "movement" had been co-
opted by the liberals with their
own hidden agenda. And if you
look at the Clinton machine and
the Democratic insider's choice,
that is what you see again - the
face of an angry white woman!
I'm not planning on voting for
Obama, but I may - it makes me
angry to see what the Clintons
and their lackeys are doing to
him. I admire him for his guts and
tenacity. And if he does make it
and John McCain wins the
Republican nod then I will vote
for Barack Obama - at least he
seems like a nice guy and has a
message of hope. To be honest -
that's about all we have left.

[ VIEWPOINT/MALCOLM A NODEN/FERNANDINA BEACH



A vision for tourism, and more


Over the course of the next few months
Nassau County residents will have several
excellent opportunities to express their
opinions on the future of tourism in their
community. The newly formed visioning committee
will help to facilitate a series of public meetings that
will be held in the main townships of the county.
These meetings will use a variety of methods includ-
ing charrettes, small groups and panel discussions
with public comment periods. During these meet-
ings, in addition to tourism, 10 other important sub-
jects (economy/workforce, culture, education and
school facilities plan, environment, governance,
health care/social services, growth management,
infrastructure, public safety and recreation/open
space) will also be on the agenda and will require
input from the public.
Many of these topics are closely related, and
thus care must be taken to ensure that each topic
gets the attention that it fully deserves. In the case
of tourism, much of the cause of the demand on the
part of our inbound tourists is, for practical purpos-
es, beyond our local control. However, the planning
cycle, which seeks to ensure that we optimally man-
age our physical carrying capacity, in a process
known as capacity management, is one that must
begin early, so that we stay in front of the tourism
demand curve, and not let it overwhelm our
resource base, while we seek to profit from its rev-
enues. In short, while we cannot fully control the
nature of demand, we can and must control the loca-
tion, style, density and impact of the supply of facili-
ties we permit to be built in response to increasing
visitor demand.
Informed and well designed planning on a coun-
tywide scale is a complex and ongoing task, much of
which is constrained by various state and local regu-


lations. Moreover, it is fraught
with problems associated with
H the widely different agendas of
S.. * those whose interests are affect-
. e ed by its outcomes. Landowners
S very often resent the application
of zoning and other restrictions
on the use and development of
their property. Developers very
Noden often take steps to reduce their
cost of development by clearing
the surface of the land of all trees
and other important but inconvenient obstacles,
such as green spaces and other natural habitats.
Government agencies when building necessary
infrastructure development, such as roads, power
lines, sewers and the like, often use their power of
eminent domain to take private property for the
greater common good. And, as ever, the taxing
authorities at state, county, and city levels are ever

share of increasing land values.
In the absence of a widespread, well-informed
communitywide agreement on the shape and nature
of the future layout and appearance of our communi-
ty, great harm can be done to the ecology of our
area, and to the fabric of the socio-economic bonds
that form the very underpinning of our common
understanding of what community really means.
The seeds of the conflict between "them" and "us,"
already germinated by history, have a habit of
becoming the dense underbrush of division and
resentment, and are often fertilized by the distaste
of "locals" for "outsiders" and vice versa.
So it is, that if we want to help direct the future

opinions on all these inter-related subjects, so that
we may come together as a community in a consen-
sus on how to shape the future in a manner that pro-
tects us, as well as the interests of future genera-

By giving our individual input to this visioning
process we will directly affect the final report that
will be presented to the county commissioners and
the chamber of commerce by the retained consult-
ants.
Watch for the mailings and announcements of
the scheduled public meetings, and then come out
to the most convenient location and tell your version
of the future for Nassau County!

A1A catastrophe
Robert Weintraub was so right ("County policy
creates risk on AlA," Jan. 25) when he wrote,
"Knowing they are doing something wrong, and con-
tinuing to do it wrong, makes the commissioners per-
sonally responsible for the consequences."
To me, the salient point or operative words are
"personally responsible."
I was nearly rear-ended by a huge, black pickup
truck last evening about 5:10 p.m. as I was exiting
Meadowfield Bluffs Road to head to the island for a din-
ner party.
After waiting for eastbound traffic to clear, I made
a right turn onto AlA, staying in the right lane. The
truck was making a U-turn from west AlA onto east
A1A Turning from the left lane, he should have turned
into the left lane, then eased into the right lane when
it was safe. But that's impossible when someone wants
to enter Tyler Plaza, just a few yards on the right. He
rode my rear bumper the whole way until he entered
Tyler Plaza.
Then a bit farther down AlA I encountered a hor-
rible scene across from Winn-Dixie. There was a
motorcycle lying across the westbound roadway, and
about 100 feet away there was the motorcyclist in the
middle of the westbound lanes flat on his back. Police
had not even responded yet, but several motorists
had already stopped, began tending to him, controlling
traffic and awaiting emergency assistance.
My knees went weak.
I said to myself, when will this all stop, or at least
improve. As I continued heading east, the emergency
vehicles passed. Drivers pulling over out of their way.
Then a sheriff's vehicle rushing to the scene.
The feeling was horrific.
Yet this scenario will probably be repeated sever-
al times more. And sadly the situation will surely con-
tinue to worsen. When a road is already at 117 percent
of capacity and with no end to the growth in sight, the
people who control life and death decisions over all of
us must be held personally responsible. Lord knows
they are morally responsible.
When the officials say, "It's the way we've always
done it," that's actually not correct. Rather the more
accurate verbiage should be,
"It's the way it's been done before." Then hopeful-
ly they would add, "and that may have been right for
that time, but it surely is wrong now and now we're
going to make it right!"
Clearly, this situation is at catastrophe status. If
additional strip malls strip away our safety and culture;
uncontrolled development controls our demise; and
convenient interpretations of laws inconveniently ruin
the lives of the lawful, we have a very serious problem!
The best time to do the right thing was yesterday
- just ask that unfortunate motorcyclist. The next best
time is now - just ask any regular citizen of Nassau
County.
I hope Weintraub's column makes a positive impact
on those who should know better. When they realize
they are "personally responsible," maybe then we'll
finally see the right things being done.

Pirate boys'soccer
I'd like to congratulate our boys' soccer team for a
great season ("Pirates eliminated," Jan. 25). As parents,
we are very proud of their performance as well as
their good sportsmanship.
We have watched as our boys have gotten many
injuries and it seems to be happening more with each
season. Yes, soccer is a physical sport, but where is the
line drawn? When did it become all right for players
to be disrespectful to not only other players, but to our
coaches and the referees? Shame on the coaches who
condone this behavior and the referees who allow this
to happen. Our team has not been taught to behave this
way and our players have not lowered themselves to
what seems to have become the norm for other teams.
This is a reflection of our coaches' high standards as
well as our boys' respectful attitude. How many other
teams can say that parents of opposing teams have
approached us after games to comment on how well
mannered and polite our boys are? We might not have
"won" our last game, but in our eyes our boys are and
always will be the winners.

Animals needing care
I feel bad for all the animals that had to be put
down due to illness at Nassau County Animal Control
and my heart goes out to Patsy Bryant for the job she
had to do ("Grim day at Animal Control: distemper,
rumors rampant," Jan. 23). There was no choice in the
matter. Some times you have to sacrifice a few to save

the many.
We need to have responsible pet owners in this
county! We should not have animals without shots,
heartworm preventative and flea products being used.
They should be fixed so they don't reproduce like
wild rabbits. We should not have animals loose in the
streets. If the ones that had to be put down had been
to a vet or clinic and had distemper shots they may
have not gotten sick. Puppies cannot fight off some-
thing like distemper and older dogs need help also, that
is why we get boosters done.
When you have a sweet little dog that wants your
love and attention then he/she starts to cough, then
the cough gets worse, then foam appears on its lips.
Then it starts to jerk and not want you to touch it. Then
it seizes and tries to bite you all because its brain is not
working correctly. It breaks your heart and makes
you wonder how mankind can be so cruel as to let it
happen.
Please - if you want to be a pet owner do it. If you
can't afford to do it responsibly go to the shelters and
volunteer to help out by walking dogs and showing an
animal you care about it instead of getting one and then
not be able to take care of it like you should. I take com-
fort in knowing that someone picked up the animals
on the other side of the rainbow bridge that Friday.

Animal control
I hope and trust city commissioners have suffi-
ciently sound judgment not to enter into, under any cir-
cumstance, any formal or informal contract or other
agreement, either directly or indirectly, with Nassau
County Animal Control or with Nassau County regard-
ing animal control, and will preserve the city's inde-
pendence in this branch of government.
Regardless of what you may be told to the con-
trary or of who may tell it to you, any relationship
between Fernandina Beach and Nassau County in
this matter will be an enormous step backwards. No
good possibly can come from even its contemplation,
much less its enactment. The only reasonable, and
highly predictable, expectations will be tragedy, scan-
dal, suffering and disgrace. The city was wise to sever
its connection with the county several years ago.
Please preserve that wisdom. Please do not exchange
it for foolishness, no matter what arguments or induce-
ments are presented; they will be empty, false or both.

What a novel idea
I too want to applaud Joan Bean for her letter of Jan.
16. Imagine a park downtown, not obstructing any
view, to be shared by all (visitors and residents alike).
Please, "powers that be," listen. We don't need anoth-
er building, another restaurant, another shop. We
need a place downtown to relax after strolling Centre
Street. A place that complements nature and gives us
all a chance to appreciate her. Give us back our island
and let our visitors see her real beauty.

Safer for everyone
While the city of Fernandina Beach and police
department cannot meet every request and need, my
wife, our pet and I want to thank you for listening and
taking action.
Three months ago, while taking a walk, I was struck
by a car clearly exceeding the speed limit on Tarpon
Avenue in North Beach Park off North Fletcher. The
police were quick to respond, completed a detailed
report and today the city installed three new stop
signs in our neighborhood. The police have also
increased their vigilance on North Fletcher and Tarpon
Avenue.
Special thanks to the city and police department for
making our family walks each morning and evening
safer for our family and residents near North Beach
Park. Harley, our 13-year-old dog, also expresses his
thanks - crossing streets is now safer for everyone.

Moral decay of teenagers
The lack of respect that today's teen have for our
National Anthem, and in extension our country and
everything that represents it, incenses me. How is it
that one can stand looking up at our majestic flag,
with your hand over your heart, listening to 'The Star-
Spangled Banner" and neglect to remove their hat?
How is it that one can, when doing the same, turn and
talk to the person next to them? How is it that a gen-
eration can be so rude?
I have attended numerous sporting events in the
last three years. I have noticed a not-so-pretty trend of
dwindling respect in teenagers. It seems to me that
there has been an increase in disrespect to elders,
parents and those in authority. However, this is not my
business to meddle in. When they disrespect our coun-
try, it is!
It irks me to no end that there are troops abroad
and today's teen seems to hold no place in their heart
for them. It does not matter if anyone agrees with
the war. This is not a matter of political views but
rather a matter of morals. This is about being an
American!
Anyone that has attended a sporting event knows
that, more often than not, there is a verbal announce-
ment to "remove your hats and stand for the playing
of our National Anthem." How hard is it to take off the
dang thing and stand silently for a few minutes? Is what
one has to say so important that it can't wait the whole
two minutes and some odd seconds of "The Star-
Spangled Banner"? Come on people! Seriously.
Somewhere between the last generation and mine,
the message of nationalism has been lost to be replaced
with selfishness and boorish behavior.
This message of morals and nationalism must be
recovered and reinstated. Each American can do little
alone, but with the effort of the group will rise to be
great!
So get with the program! Take your hat off. Stand
still. Be silent. And show some respect!

What to do when birds fall from the sky


I know it's winter now - the
large migratory sea birds
are falling from the sky
again. I'm not a wildlife
rehabber but as a person of last
resort a number of calls and e-
mails get directed my way this
time of year.
"I found a beautiful big bird on
the beach. It's not a sea gull. But
it's not flying
away and I
think it's
injured. What
do I do about
it?"
Well, folks,
up until now
this has been
a real prob-
lem recently.
Pat BEAKS, the
Foster-Turley animal rehab
facility on Big
Talbot Island
WILD WAYS that has
worked to
save birds for more than two
decades, has been "closed for
renovation" for a couple of years
for personal reasons, and
Jeannie's Jungle, a facility in
Yulee which stepped in to fill the
gap, has not had enough financial
support from the community and


also had to close.
It takes more than love to run
an animal rehab facility. It takes
state and federal licenses, and it
takes money. Lots of money. Just
imagine what it costs to feed
fresh fish to hundreds of birds a
day. And vet bills are not cheap,
as any of you pet owners know
for yourself.
With this gap in local animal
rehab facilities, I've had difficulty
fielding these phone calls. In the
case of loons, sometimes I can
actually help. Loons, those large
fish-eaters that pair up in north-
ern lakes in the spring, spend
their winters here and further
south in our oceans and inland
waters. Occasionally, one gets
stuck on the beach when the tide
goes out, or lands on a wet drive-
way, mistaking it for a waterway.
Loons, unlike most other
birds, cannot take off into flight
from land and, with legs and feet
designed for swimming and posi-
tioned far back on the body, they
can barely even walk. They need
a long stretch of water to take off
from - a water runway. I know
this, and now, reading this, you
do too. If you find a loon on the
shore, seeming hurt, it may just
be stranded. If it is somewhere

self from its sharp beak and place
the bird on a smooth stretch of
water. Just maybe it will fly away,
grateful for the help, and go on
with its life.
On Christmas Eve, one such
loon landed on a driveway in
Yulee, and in Philadelphia, I
received an e-mail. The con-
cerned homeowners managed to
get the bird in a cage and, not
finding BEAKS open, they fed the
bird mullet and e-mailed me. By
their description, I knew it was a
loon and I advised them to set it
free on a waterway and see what
happens. Here's the report from
them when I asked how the loon
made out.

"It is all good ... we did as

GREAT!"
So, that loon, and others,
here's hoping, with a bit of help
can make it on their own. But the
large white gannets, a pelagic
migratory bird that are really
heading further south, are anoth-
er story. Sometimes a storm
drops them from the sky, and
they are most often sick or
injured when they are found.
Pelicans and other birds, too, are
often found in poor health. Until

telling people how to help them.
But now, BEAKS is reopening
again on a limited basis - no
tours, but they are now accepting
injured birds until they reach
their capacity. They do not have
the manpower at this time to
retrieve the birds, though, and
this will be up to the finder to do.
If you find an injured bird, first
call BEAKS at 904-251-BIRD.
Then, carefully toss a towel
over the bird to keep from get-
ting injured yourself, put it in a
box or clean garbage can or cage
and transport it to BEAKS on
Houston Road off ALA on Big
Talbot Island. Cindy Mosling,
BEAKS director, assures me that
by the time you are reading this,
she will have a transport cage
ready at the front gate once again
to accept injured birds.
It's great for all of us that
BEAKS is back. Remember them
when you find an injured bird.
And, even more important,
remember their costs which
they right now cover from their
own pockets, and make a dona-
tion to help them. We all appreci-
ate the service they provide for
us and for our wildlife. It's time to
show them our support, to keep
them in the game. Our birds
depend on it.

V EARTH TALK


Sharks in rapid decline


Dear EarthTalk: What is the
status of sharks around the world?
I see occasional stories about sharks
attacking humans, but on balance
aren't we a lot more brutal to them
then they are to us?
-Pam Hitschler, Radnor, Pa.
It's true that humans do a lot
more damage to shark populations
than vice versa. Marine biologists
report that sharks are in rapid
decline around the world. In the
North Atlantic Ocean, shark pop-
ulations have declined more than
50 percent over the past 20 years
alone, with some species now near-
ing extinction.
Experts see the primary cause
as overfishing, which depletes
sharks as well as their prey. Sharks
are especially vulnerable to illegal
"longlines" (fishing nets strung
across dozens if not hundreds of
miles of ocean), where they get
inadvertently snared along with
the tuna and swordfish fishermen
intend to catch.
Rising demand for shark fin
soup is also contributing to the
demise of sharks. According to a
report by Wildaid, shark fins are
among the most expensive seafood
products in the world, selling for
some $700 per kilogram on the
Hong Kong market. With prices
like that, many longline fishermen,
who are already operating illegal-
ly, are happy to augment their
incomes by finningg" a few sharks
along the way. (Finning is the prac-
tice of removing a fin from a shark
and discarding the rest of the car-
cass at sea.)
Often, threatened wildlife
species manage to maintain their
numbers in spite of excessive
human predation. But sharks face
an especially uphill battle, says
renowned shark expert Ransom
Myers, because they "take a long
time to mature and have relative-
ly few babies."
So what is being done to save
sharks? In the U.S., the Magnuson-
Stevens Fishery Conservation Act


is the primary law that oversees
the conservation of U.S. fisheries
and has established various man-
agement regulations for 39 species
of sharks in the Atlantic Ocean,
Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.
It outlaws finning if the carcass is
discarded but not if the rest of car-
cass is kept, clearly an unfortu-
nate loophole.
The U.S. also helped develop a
United Nations Food and
Agriculture Organization treaty
(the International Plan of Action
for the Conservation and
Management of Sharks) whereby
87 countries agreed to develop
their own plans for the conserva-
tion of sharks. However, only two
countries - the U.S. and Australia
- have lived up to the agreement.
The U.S. plan is administered by
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration,
which has been working with
regional fisheries authorities to
make sure fishermen are sticking
to cautiously low quotas regard-
ing the number of sharks they are
allowed to catch.
What can consumers do to save
the sharks? The Monterey Bay
Aquarium in Monterey, Calif.,
urges consumers to avoid all shark
products, not just on restaurant
menus but also all souvenirs such
as jaws and teeth and shark-carti-
lage pills, which have been touted
as cancer cures but which have
been proven to be completely inef-
fective and are now widely con-
sidered a scam. The aquarium also
encourages consumers to support
with their pocketbooks conserva-
tion groups working to protect
sharks and oceans, and specifical-
ly those working to set aside
marine reserves that are off-limits
to fishing.

Flushing medications may harm


sharks, other aquatic animal life


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE - Sending com-
monly prescribed medications
down the drain may be taking a bite
out of the environment - at least
when it comes to shark habitat,
University of Florida veterinary sci-
entists say. In fact, the combination
of flushing unused medications and
the natural excretion of drug
residue from antidepressants, cho-
lesterol-regulating drugs and con-
traceptives into wastewater systems
could be having repercussions on
aquatic animal life in general.
Researchers at UF's College of
Veterinary Medicine's Analytical
Toxicology Core Laboratory, in col-
laboration with Mote Marine
Laboratory in Sarasota, are studying
the bull shark's exposure to phar-
maceutical drug residue found in
the waters of the Caloosahatchee
River near Fort Myers. Bull sharks
leave the ocean to spend time in
brackish rivers and estuaries, and
the river serves as a nursery for
their young.
"Because bull sharks have the
unique ability to survive in both
saltwater and freshwater environ-
ments, they are in close, frequent
contact with people - and, as a
result, are frequently exposed to
wastewater pollutants found in
freshwater basins," said Jim
Gelsleichter, senior scientist at Mote
Marine Laboratory.

mine whether exposure to pre-
scription residue contaminants from
water treatment plants and other
sources affects the sharks' ability to
grow and reproduce.
"Treatment plants were
designed to remove pathogens like
viruses and bacterial agents, and
that they do very well," said Nancy
Szabo, Gelsleichter's co-investiga-
tor and director of UF's Analytical
Toxicology Core Laboratory. But
these facilities simply aren't
designed to deal with pharmaceu-
ticals, she said.


Evidence suggests that low-level
pharmaceutical pollution is wide-
spread. In 1999 and 2000, the U.S.
Geological Survey sampled 139
streams in 30 states for organic
wastewater contaminants, includ-
ing common pharmaceuticals.
Eighty percent of the streams stud-
ied contained traces of chemical
pollution. The consequences of
such contamination are not yet fully
known, although some research
has shown even low levels of these
contaminants affect several fish
species.

Seniors warned about reverse-mortgage scams


TALLAHASSEE - Florida
Attorney General Bill McCollum
has issued a consumer advisory
warning Florida's senior citizens
about a mortgage-related scam that
may target them directly. As he
unveiled legislation to combat mort-
gage "foreclosure rescue" scams,
McCollum also cautioned senior
citizens about scams associated
with reverse mortgages, a type of
home equity loan frequently
abused by con artists and scam-


mers. These loans are often popu-
lar options for senior citizens
because they offer a cash source
which can help meet unexpected
medical expenses, supplement
Social Security and more.
Reverse mortgages are a special
type of home loan that allows home-
owners who are 62 and older to
borrow against their home equity
without having to repay the money
until the home is sold or the bor-
rower dies or moves out perma-


nently. When the home is sold,
lenders recover their principal plus
interest. The remaining value of
the home goes to the homeowner
or to his or her survivors.
Unfortunately, as the popularity
of reverse mortgages grows, so
does the potential for fraud.
Predatory lenders, unscrupulous
loan agents and dishonest brokers
may target senior citizens who may
be anxious about their financial
security. Deceptive practices and


allegations of high-pressure sales
tactics are being more frequently
encountered as senior citizens are
being taken advantage of under the
guise of a helpful and legitimate
reverse mortgage. Borrowers also
run the risk of being steered into
inappropriate loans and annuities
by sales agents and insurance bro-
kers who could be working togeth-
er without disclosing that relation-
ship to the borrower.
McCollum noted that reverse


mortgages can serve a purpose
when financed through legitimate
lenders. According to the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD), homeown-
ers who take out a reverse mort-
gage can receive payments in a
lump sum, on a monthly basis or on
an occasional basis as a line of cred-
it. Homeowners whose circum-
stances change can restructure
their payment options.
HUD-approved housing coun-


selling agencies are available for
free, or at minimal cost, to provide
information, counseling and free
referral to a list of HUD-approved
lenders. HUD does not recom-
mend using an estate planning
service or any service that charges
a fee just for referring a borrower
to a lender. This information can be
obtained by calling HUD at 1-800-
569-4287. More information is avail-
able at www.hud.gov/buying/ rvrs
mort.cfm.

SERVICE IN IRAQ


SUBMITTED
Fernandina Beach Firefighter/EMT Harold Bargeron was honored and promoted by the 125th
Security Forces Squadron, 125th Fighter Wing, Florida Air National Guard, Jacksonville, in
November. Sgt. Bargeron was promoted to the rank of Technical Sgt. (E-6) and awarded the

It's time for 'Burn Awareness'


Burn prevention is a key
endeavor of Shriners Hospitals for
Children, which is why the hospi-
tal system began its "Burn
Awareness" campaigns more than
25 years ago.
Held the first full week in
February, Burn Awareness Week
is recognized by the National
Health and Information Center,
Office of Disease Prevention
and Health Promotion, U.S.
Department of Health and Human
Services.
The Shriners Hospitals for
Children specializing in burns
have treated more than 800 chil-
dren since 2002 for acute burn
injuries resulting from ignition of
highly flammable materials such
as gasoline. Kids ages 13 and older
are in the highest at risk group
for gasoline and other flammable
substances.
During Burn Awareness Week
2008, Feb. 3-9, Shriners Hospitals
is concentrating on preventing
gasoline burn injuries and pro-
moting the safe use and storage of
gasoline.
Most gasoline injuries are
avoidable through proper use and


storage of gasoline.
For safety:
* Never use gasoline around a
flame source. Be aware of sources
such as matches, lighters, ciga-
rettes and pilot lights on stoves
and water heaters.
* Only use gasoline outdoors,
in well-ventilated areas.
* Start charcoal grills with fuels
labeled as charcoal starters -
never use gasoline.
* Fill equipment gasoline tanks
when engines are turned off
and cold. Running engines can
spark and cause ignition of the
gasoline.
* Never carry gasoline in the
trunk of your car for an extended
period of time.
* Never siphon gasoline by
mouth. It can be fatal if swallow-
ed.
* If gasoline is spilled on
clothes, remove them immediate-
ly. Place clothing outdoors for sev-
eral days before washing and dry-
ing so that gasoline vapors can
evaporate.
* Always keep the minimum
amount of gas required (general-
ly no more than one gallon).


* If gasoline is swallowed, do
not induce vomiting. Seek med-
ical attention immediately.


COUNTY FIRE PROMOTION

Teens held for Yulee


vehicle burglaries


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Two Jacksonville teenagers
have been arrested and a third is
sought after several vehicles were
burglarized in a Yulee neighbor-
hood - including a Nassau County
Sheriff's Office vehicle and its lap-
top computer.
The thefts occurred Jan. 21 in
Timber Creek subdivision; one vic-
tim was able to describe two sus-
pects seen in the area.
While deputies were talking to
the victim, a vehicle drove by the
residence and the victim said the
boys inside looked like the sus-
pects.
Deputies attempted to conduct
a traffic stop on the vehicle, but
"the suspects failed to stop and
were pursued into Duval County
where the suspects abandoned the
vehicle," according to a written
statement released by Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves.
Deputies searched the area but
did not find the suspects, but a
short time later the victim report-


ed seeing one of them on a bicycle
at a nearby gas station.
When police arrived and tried to
interview the boy, he ran away, but
deputies found his wallet and deter-
mined he was the son of the owner
of the abandoned vehicle.
The father was notified and
the boy was arrested and released
to the Department of Juvenile
Justice.
Seagraves said a second sus-
pect has since been arrested and
police are searching for a third per-
son they believe was involved in
the burglaries.
Seagraves said the sheriff's
office laptop and several other
stolen items were recovered inside
the vehicle the suspects were driv-
ing.
Seagraves said police discov-
ered the bike the one suspect was
riding also was stolen.
The boys face charges of bur-
glary to an automobile, theft and
grand theft. Seagraves said all
three suspects are from
Jacksonville.

Woman still

in critical

condition

SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
The Zephyrhills woman
injured in a Jan. 17 accident
involving a Nassau County
school bus remains in critical
condition at Shands Jackson-
ville.
Carole Jean Ryder, 70, was
driving an SUV when she col-
lided with a school bus driven
by Michelle Conner, 40, of
Hilliard. Ryder's husband, John
Robert Ryder, 73, died at the
scene.
Conner received minor
injuries and was treated and
released from the hospital that
same day. None of the four stu-
dents were injured in the wreck.
An adult passenger on the
bus also escaped injury.
According to Lt. Bill Leeper
of the Florida Highway Patrol,
the bus was traveling west on
A1A approaching the 1-95 on-
ramps as a 2005 Chevrolet
Trailblazer SUV that had
been 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.

Damage to the truck is estimated at
$5,000. According to the report,
police believe Hutto was driving
about 15 miles over the posted
speed limit.
Gas station attack
Three people in a vehicle parked
at a gas station in Yulee reported-
ly were sprayed with pepper
spray by an unknown suspect on
Sunday; one of the victims also
reported having $900 stolen from
her purse.
One of the victims told police a
female suspect approached her car
about 3:30 a.m. and sprayed pepper
spray on all three occupants. The
three victims ran into the gas sta-
tion to wash out their eyes. When
they returned, one of the victims
noticed the money missing from
her purse. She said she saw a man
go inside the vehicle and remove
something, but she couldn't see
what it was that he took.
According to a sheriff's office
report, the incident stemmed from
an earlier dispute in Fernandina
Beach. The victims were able to
give police what they believed were
the first names of the suspects -
Sonique and Freddy- and said they
lived in Brunswick, Ga.
Investigators took copies of the
store's surveillance video; the inci-
dent is still under investigation and
no arrests have been made.


Vehicles burglarized
Several vehicles parked in most-
ly residential areas in downtown
Fernandina Beach were reported
burglarized on Thursday, and a
woman living in the area also
reported a red golf cart stolen from
her garage, in addition to several
items being stolen from her vehicle.
Several bottles of liquor and about
$5 in change was missing from her
vehicle.
A cash box containing $394.65
was reported stolen close to the
same time at a nearby residence.
Two iPods, credit cards, a check-
book, packs of cigarettes and a
purse were among other items
reported stolen from vehicles in
that area. The burglaries were
reported at various locations
between Fifth and Eighth streets.
No arrests have been made; the
burglaries are still under investi-
gation.

QUESTION: Is there a
way I as a father can
influence my daughter's
attitude toward boys? If
she chooses to marry,
she will need to under-
stand men and know
how to relate to them. Is that some-
thing I should be thinking about?
DR. DOBSON:You bet it is. Long
before a girl finds her first real
boyfriend or falls in love, her attitude
toward men has been shaped quietly
by her father.Why? Because the father-
daughter relationship sets the stage
for all future romantic involvements.
If a young woman's father rejects
her, she'll spend her life trying to find
a man who can meet the needs he
never fulfilled in her heart. If he's warm
and nurturing, she'll look for a lover to
equal him. If he thinks she's beautiful
and feminine, she'll be inclined to see
herself that way. But, if he rejects her
as unattractive and uninteresting, she's
likely to carry self-image problems into
her adult years.
It's also true that a woman's rela-
tionship with her husband is signifi-
cantly influenced by the way she per-
ceived her father's authority. If he was
overbearing or capricious during her
earlier years, she may precipitate
power struggles with her husband
throughout married life. But, if Dad
blended love and discipline in a way

that conveyed strength, she may be
more comfortable with a give-and-
take marriage characterized by mutu-
al respect.
So much of what goes into mar-
riage starts with the bride's father.
That's why it behooves those of us
with daughters to give our best effort
to raising them properly.You are right
to be thinking about that vital rela-
tionship.
QUESTION: The children in our
neighborhood are bratty with one another
and disrespectful with adults. This upsets
me, but I don't know what to do about it. I
don't have a right to discipline the children
of my neighbors, so they get away with mur-
der. How can I deal with this?
DR. DOBSON: Parents in a neigh-
borhood need to learn to talk to each other
about their kids -- although that is difficult
to do! There is no quicker way to anger
one mother than for another woman to
criticize her precious cub. It is a delicate
subject, indeed.That's why the typical neigh-

of their children.The kids know there are no
lines of communication between adults, and
they take advantage of the barrier. What
each block needs is a mother who has the
courage to say to her neighbors,"I want to
be told what my child does when she is
beyond her own yard. If she is a brat with
other children, I would like to know it. If she
is disrespectful with adults, please mention
it to me. I will not consider it tattling and I
won't resent your coming to me. I hope I can
share my insights regarding your children,
too. None of our kids is perfect, and we'll
know better how to teach them if we can
talk openly to each other as adults."
Until this openness exists between
parents living nearby,the children will create
and live by their own rules in the neighbor-
hood.
QUESTION: After reading several
excellent books on parenting, I see now that
I've been doing many things wrong with my
children. Can I undo the harm?
DR. DOBSON: I doubt if it is too
late to do things right, although your ability
to influence your children lessens with the
passage of time. Fortunately we are permit-
ted to make many mistakes with our kids.
They are resilient and they usually survive
most of our errors in judgment. It's a good
thing they do, because none of us can be a
perfect parent. Besides, it's not the occa-
sional mistakes that hurt a child -- it is the
consistent influence of destructive condi-
tions throughout childhood that does the
damage.

LEGACY Continued from 1A
ment to the town."
The St. Joseph Academy and
Convent school was erected
between early 1881 and
November 1882. In 1961, the
Order of St. Joseph's sold the
school to St. Michael Catholic
Church, but it ended as an aca-
demic institution in 1971.
The circumstances surround-
ing the reopening of the school
were certainly not as dire as the
original pursuit, but parallels can
still be drawn. The three
Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters
who reopened St. Michael
Academy were also part of a reli-
gious order with a long history of
spiritually dedicated educators.
While Sisters Martha, Barbara
and Elizabeth were certainly not
a five-week boat ride away, they
were living in what could be
described as a world away. They
were teaching at a state-of-the-art
new school in Southwest
Florida's relatively young town of
Cape Coral with over 500 stu-
dents in attendance.
The year was 1994. A fellow
educator friend in Jacksonville
mentioned a rumor that was cir-
culating about the possibility of a
Catholic grade school opening
on Amelia Island. Misinterpret-
ing the Sisters' "how nice" inter-
est for "wouldn't it be nice" inter-
est, she approached St. Michael
Catholic Church's then pastor
Father Mark Waters to recom-
mend her three friends In 1995,


Tours this weekend
St. Michael Academy invites the community to its open house
this weekend for tours of the school at 228 N. Fourth St. in
Fernandina Beach. Tours will be conducted after all masses from
4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Sunday. Registration for the 2008-9 school year is in February. For
information on registration dates and tuition fees, contact the
school office at 321-2102.


a postcard would arrive of St.
Michael Academy's front door,
this time from a fellow Sinsinawa
Sister in Jacksonville, coaxing
the Sisters to move north.
Like the scenario so frequent-
ly depicted in Hollywood movies
of the big-hearted, small-town
football team looking for that
miracle-maker coach, the quest
to bring the Sisters to the new
school had begun.
The "new" school, however,
while grand in history and
stature, was an old building in
desperate need of repairs that
had not been used as a school
for over 25 years. There were no
students, no books, no comput-
ers and little money. This "new"
school was nothing more than
the dream and devotion of a
small town's Catholic com-
munity.
But that dream and devotion
would grow. The school's
restoration program and the
recruitment of the Sisters would
continue over the next several
years. It was in 1998, after the
nuns made an impromptu visit to
Amelia Island (to enjoy a picnic

lunch on the beach with their
friend from Jacksonville), that
the irresistible charm of the
island, the community and even
the grand old dilapidated build-
ing, convinced the Sisters. As
Sister Martha describes it, "We
truly felt the school needed us."
They experienced an instant
connection to the small town
community and the contagious
passion of the pastor and his ded-
icated parishioners. "It was evi-
dent, these were people deter-
mined to give the families of
their community the opportunity
of a faith based education. But
you need to know," she admits,
"it was definitely a leap of faith
for us in the beginning. Looking
back now, we know it was meant
to be."
Today the legacy put into
motion more than a century ago
continues under the tutelage of
Father Brian Eburn, current pas-
tor of the parish community. He
too brought with him a passion


for the project, bringing to
fruition the dream of a middle
school.
The completely restored
Second Empire architectural
styled school building stands
proud as one of the most notable
landmarks on the island, once
again an ornament to the town.
The call for spiritually rewarding
the community also continues.
The three Sisters moved north,
with Sister Elizabeth Dunn tak-
ing the reins as the school's first
principal. Eventually those reins
would be handed to Sister
Martha.
"Our mission is and always
will be to reward our community
and our world, for that matter,
with future generations of young
men and women who are self-dis-
ciplined, self-reliant and socially
conscious, modeling their lives
after Jesus Christ, enlightened
and enlivened by their education
and their faith," Sister Martha
says. "But the reward is definite-
ly reciprocated. This has been a
truly fulfilled journey for us. We
are a family here at St. Michael
Academy. It sounds cliche, but I
hear it from our parents and past
students all the time. There's a
warmth here, a generosity of
spirit. That spirit is a living part
of our history. You can feel it
when you step through our
doors, can't you?"

AAFL

willserve

as a spring,

summer

footballfix

The All-American
Football league, or
AAFL, held its first
player draft last
weekend in preparation for its
inaugural season that is set to
begin in April. The Florida
squad, made up primarily of
former Florida, Florida State
and Miami players, will travel
to Michigan April 19 before
hosting its first home game at
The Swamp the following
week. The Florida team will
wear orange and blue (which
has to be painful for the likes
of former 'Nole Peter
Warrick) and will be coached
by former University of
Florida QB Shane Matthews.
While the last such experi-
ment, the XFL (who can forget
the mega star "He Hate Me"),
was a major flop, I've got a
good feeling about this upstart
league and its chance at suc-
cess. Because although it will
be considered a professional
league, the AAFL will have a
college feel. And no matter
what any talking head says
about the NFL taking over in
popularity around here, col-
lege football will always be
king in the South.
April through July is usual-
ly a rough spell for football
fanatics who have to fill their
time on message boards
responding to threads about
possible uniform changes for
the upcoming season.
Hopefully the AAFL will bring
some substance to the lives of
us poor souls ...
If you get the NFL
Network, you got one such fix
of post-postseason college
football Saturday when a
bunch of NFL hopefuls
strapped on the pads at the
Senior Bowl. And Gator fans
got an extra pump of adrena-
line when former Florida WR
Andre "Bubba" Caldwell took
an end-around for a touch-
down with no time left on the
clock to give the South a 17-16
win over the North. Yes, col-
lege football withdrawal is
already kicking in. Bring on
the AAFL...
Rumor has it that New
England QB Tom Brady was
spotted limping outside of his
Boston-area home Saturday.
The news likely sent a shiver
through Patriots fans, who
have to know that their team
would be in big trouble
against the New York Giants
Sunday if Brady were unable
to play. Personally, I think it's
a bunch of over-hyped hog-
wash. High-ankle sprain or
not, someone would probably
have to kidnap Brady to keep
him off the field for the final
time this season ...
OK, so what if Brady were
listed as "out" the day before
the Super Bowl? I'd have to
believe that the betting line
would go from the Patriots
giving 12 points to getting 12
points.
Seriously, I can't recall a
team as reliant on the pass as
New England and it's hard to
imagine anyone stepping in
and filling the shoes of
arguably the greatest quarter-
back of the modern era...
I've been a fan of Leonard
Hamilton, Florida State head
basketball coach, since way
before he landed in
Tallahassee. With that said, I
believe the Seminoles have
drastically underachieved on
the veteran coach's watch and
a change at the top might be
in order.
Hamilton has recruited
plenty of talented players who
have shown flashes of bril-
liance over the years. But at
some point, those flashes have


to turn into consistency.
Bottom line, there is no rea-
son Florida State couldn't
have a top-tier ACC basketball
program with the right guy
calling the shots.

Davenport returns to Amelia Island


BETH JONES
News- Leader
Lindsay Davenport, former No.
1 in the world and three-time
Amelia Island champion (1997,
2004 and 2005), will play in the
2008 Bausch & Lomb Champion-
ships April 7-13 at Amelia Island
Plantation, tournament officials
announced Saturday.
Davenport, who took a hiatus
from tennis to expand her family,
gave birth to son Jagger Jonathan
Leach in June 2007. She returned
to action three months later and
has already captured three singles
titles - Bali, Quebec City and
Auckland.
"Life on the road is a little bit
busier than it used to be. I haven't
left him yet," Davenport said of
Jagger, who will accompany his
mother to Amelia Island. "I'm able
to play tennis and hang out with
him the rest of the day."
Davenport said she didn't


expect to return to the court as
soon as she did.
"As the weeks progressed, we
realized I was bouncing back much
faster than we had anticipated,"
she said. "I slowly started work-
ing my way back.
"If someone had told me I
would be sitting here with the
results I've had so far, I wouldn't
have believed them."
Davenport said she is excited to
return to Amelia Island to vie for
her fourth singles title.
"I've always loved playing
there," she said. "I think that the
intimacy factor of the tournament
is phenomenal. It's always been
such a fun, kind of low-key week
and it's the best I've ever done on
clay."
It will be Davenport's first clay
tournament of the year and,
although she said it's not her
favorite surface, she has found suc-
cess on the clay courts at Amelia
Island Plantation.


"For years Lindsay has been a
fan favorite at Amelia Island," said
John Arrix, tournament director.
"It is great for American tennis to
see her back playing and playing at
a level that will land her in the Top
5 in the world by Roland Garros.
Lindsay is very comfortable at
Amelia and be assured she is com-
ing here with the goal of winning
her fourth Bausch & Lomb Cham-
pionships title."
Davenport has collected 54 sin-
gles titles on the Sony Ericsson
WTATour, including three majors
(1998 U.S. Open, 1999 Wimbledon,
2000 Australian Open), an Olympic
gold medal and 36 doubles titles.
She recently announced her com-
mitment to play on the 2008 U.S.
Fed Cup team. Davenport held
onto the world No. 1 ranking for 98
non-consecutive weeks, beginning
in October 1998 and ending
January 2006.

Lindsay Davenport proudly displays the trophy she won on

The Pirates (15-7) rebounded
from Thursday's loss to Bolles to
defeat the visiting Bishop Snyder
Cardinals Friday.
"Bolles was a game which we
let slip away," said Matt Schreiber,
Fernandina Beach High School
boys basketball coach. "We made
too many errors in the second half
and did not shoot free throws well.
"We had a few spurts in the
Bishop Snyder game where we
played well but we never could put
them away until late."
Host Bolles edged the Pirates
53-51Thursday, outscoring FBHS
14-8 in the third and 15-10 in the
final quarter. The Pirates were up
33-24 at halftime.
A pair of Pirates scored in dou-
ble figures. Carlos Holcey and Trey
Kublbock had 18 points apiece.
Holcey also had eight rebounds,
two assists and three steals while
Kublbock recorded nine rebounds,
three assists and three steals.
Steven Rossmeissl had five re-
bounds and four steals. Patrick
Garvin pulled down five boards
and had an assist and a steal.
Holcey led the Pirates with 17
points in their 65-50 win over the
Bishop Snyder Cardinals Friday.
He also had 10 rebounds, three
assists and a steal.
Two more Pirates were also in
double figures. Jake Brogdon
scored 16 points to go along with a
pair of assists and a steal. Matt
Brown scored 11 points, had two
rebounds and two steals. Chris
Keffer had nine rebounds and two
steals.
Fernandina had a one-point lead
after the first quarter but extended
it to 14 by halftime. The Pirates
led 33-19 at the half. Snyder rallied
in the third quarter, outscoring the
hosts 20-11, but the Pirates
answered in the fourth quarter,
outscoring the Cardinals 21-11.
The Pirates hosted University
Christian Tuesday and cap the reg-
ular season Friday when they play
host to the Hilliard Flashes. Tip-off
is at 7:30 p.m. (varsity). Junior var-
sity tilt is 6 p.m.
The Pirates will honor their four
seniors - Trey Kublbock, Matt
Brown, Steven Rossmeissl and
Bruce Davis - on Friday, their
final game in Pirate Gym.
* "We're on a five- or six-game
skid," said Robert Barrow, Yulee
High School boys basketball coach.
The Yulee Hornets dropped
back-to-back games Thursday and
Friday.
West Nassau defeated the host
Yulee Hornets 71-62 Thursday.
Demetrius Small led the Hornets
with 20 points.
"It was a real close game,"
Barrow said.
It was the first game the
Hornets played without a couple
of players, who they lost because of
academic ineligibility.
"We're thin at the guard posi-
tion," Barrow said. "We lost quick-
ness and a double-figure scorer.

Pirate pitcher pens with Darton


BETH JONES
News Leader

Justin Day, senior pitcher for
Fernandina Beach High School's
baseball team, signed a letter of
intent last week to continue his
career at Darton College, a junior
college in Albany, Ga.
"I liked the coaches a lot," Day
said of his visit to Darton. "It's a
young team so I'll have a chance to
go in and prove myself and get a
starting position as a freshman."
Day, who started playing base-
ball when he was just six years
old, is a four-year letterman at
FBHS and is in his third year on
varsity with the Pirates, who open
their season Feb. 5 in a preseason
tournament at Sandalwood.
Day attended a showcase in
Douglas, Ga., and met a coach
from Darton. He said he was con-
tacted a week later.
"He's a prototype right-handed
pitcher," FBHS Coach Ken Roland
said. "He's tall, lanky (6-foot-1) with
a good arm. He had an outstanding
fall.
"He fought injuries last year
although he had several good out-
ings. He's one of our go-to guys."
Day said he plans to transfer

Good shots, however, are cheered loudly. One famous moment at the 16th
was Tiger Woods' hole-in-one in 1997, which caused the gallery to erupt,
throwing cups and other objects in celebration.

i An official USGA handicap index
that you can use in tournaments
- requires that you submit your
scores directly to a golf club to
undergo the process of "peer
review". The USGA requires a min-
*f imum of 12 scores to be submitted
in order to calculate your particular handicap
index. Once your handicap index is calculated and
returned by the USGA, you now can determine the
number of strokes you receive to adjust your
score, when compared to other players. As you
continue to play and post different scores for the
rounds of golf you finish, your handicap index will
fluctuate higher or lower depending on the scores
you submit. Of course, getting an accurate handi-
cap index also provides that you turn in an accu-
rate representation of your scores.


The PGA Tour mourned the death of long-time caddie Steve Duplantis last week
after the Canadian was struck by a taxi. Duplantis, 35, was killed while crossing
a road in Del Mar, Calif. in the early hours of Wednesday morning, the San Diego 0 ', .= ,
Sheriffs Office said. "The PGA Tour is saddened by the loss of one of its family mem-
bers," Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement. "We send our thoughts and \
condolences to Steve's friends and family." A popular figure on the PGA Tour, where he
was known for bringing out the best in his players, Duplantis had caddied for former major winners
Jim Furyk and Rich Beem. He had been scheduled to work last week for Eric Axley at the Buick
Invitational. A defining moment in Duplantis' career came at the 1999 Kemper Open where he helped
Beem, then a rookie, win his maiden PGA Tour title by a shot in his 12th start.

Bass fishing





before spawn


Savvy Florida bass fisher-
men are beginning to get
really excited about the
next few weeks of bass
fishing. With a full moon arriving
Feb. 22, giant Florida large-
mouth bass, laden with eggs, will
begin to feed up for the upcom-
ing spawn. During this time of
year, a female bass may weigh as
much as two pounds more than
she normally does during the
rest of the fishing season.
"Our bass club did real well
recently during a bass tourna-
ment held on the St. Marys
River," Billy Kittrell said. 'The
team of Eddie Jinright and Roger
Linville topped all competitors
with a total weight of 19.7
pounds. They also claimed big
bass with a 3.47-pound large-
mouth bass."
The St. Marys River is a popu-
lar bass river, where several
small and large feeder creeks
feed into the main river channel.
A deep channel and steep banks
require special bass fishing tac-
tics. However, some of the best
bass fishing comes from the
many feeder creeks, including
the Little St. Marys River, where
water depths are more suitable
for Florida largemouth bass.
"Another great estuary to the
Big St. Marys River is the rice
paddies," Kittrell said. "Anytime
your bass lure makes contact
with wood in the rice fields, you
can expect to catch a nice St.
Marys River bass.
"When the rice fields were
**! i :,ih. there were several
wooden dikes used to keep the
water flooded in the rice fields.
Now, the dikes are rotting but
still somewhat intact, offering
great cover for St. Marys River
bass.
"One thing you don't wish to
happen is to forget about the
tides. A falling tide will leave you
and your boat stranded in the
rice paddies and on the bottom."
Kittrell is the tournament
director for the Nassau
Bassmasters, which has some 20
members and runs at least one
bass tournament per month.
"During the spawning season,
including February, March and
April, we may hold two bass tour-
naments per month," Kittrell
said. "Our favorite place to fish is
Boggy Creek, where we find the


bass run-
ning a little
larger than
St. Marys
River bass.
During past
years, we
weighed in
bass weigh-
ing up to 10
Terry Lacoss pounds.
"How-
S "- ever, for
OUTDOORS action dur-
ing the bass
spawning season, you just can't
beat the St. Marys River. During
a past fishing trip to the St.
Marys River, we caught and
released 45 bass, weighing to
two pounds. Most of the bass
were caught in a small area and
were caught on topwater plugs."
Kittrell also reports that most
of the winning bass weighed in
during the recent St. Marys
River bass tournament were
taken with "Devil Horse" topwa-
ter plugs.
"I like to fish with a plastic
frog when I bass fish in Boggy
Creek," Kittrell said. "Here, I will
work the shallow water lily pads
using 20-pound braided fishing
line tied right to the frog's large
bass hook.
'The frog is cast right up on
the mud banks of the river and
worked slowly through the lily
pads. And in some cases, a big
bass will attack the plastic frog
when it's dragged from the mud
bank into the river."
David Mack actually began
using this deadly Boggy Creek
bass fishing tactic several fishing
seasons ago. He would barb his
worm hook weedless-style and
without a weight. The plastic
worm was then cast right onto
the mud banks of the bass river.
Mack would then engage his
bass reel and slowly retrieve the
worm into the river, often caus-
ing awesome strikes and better-
than-average catches of river
bass.
During a past spring fishing
trip, Kittrell had caught a nice
stringer of bream, which was
attached to the gunnel of his
canoe.
"An alligator two thirds the
size of my canoe took hold of my
stringer of bream and began tow-
ing me around like a large bob-


Largemouth bass will begin moving onto shallow flats, above, where a variety
of Florida aquatic grasses offer both cover and plenty of forage foods during
the upcoming spawning season. Small boats are ideal for fishing Northeast
Florida's small freshwater rivers and lakes. Left, Terry David Lacoss with a
Berkley Gulp bait and a bass. Below, Billy Kittrell works his bass boat over a
shallow spawning flat.

ber," Kittrell said. "I reached
down and untied the stringer just
before the alligator was about to
capsize my canoe."
Last weekend, my son, Terry
David Lacoss, was bass fishing
with his wife, April, when they


saw two fishermen take off in
their small boat.
"You could see a four- to five-
pound bass attached to a
stringer, skipping on the water
behind the boat," Terry David
Lacoss said.


Then one fisherman said,
"My bass, my bass! Stop the
boat, stop the boat."
By then it was too late, as the
bass stringer had sprung open,
setting the bass free.
Terry David and April Lacoss


continued to hear the bass fisher-
men shout words of disapproval.
Look for the best bass fishing
during the pre-spawn bass fish-
ing season to come just before a
front and when there have been
stable weather conditions.

Living among royalty' onAmelia Island


They are island royalty. Their
last name is even King. Often
spotted at local restaurants, Tom
King and Barbara Ann Scott
King, turn heads. The distinctive
couple is always gracious as peo-
ple stop at their table to say hello.
Their enthusiasm for life and the
people around them is conta-
gious.
Their modesty is noteworthy,
especially when you learn of all
the two have accomplished. The
weekend of Feb. 2 is a big one for
the couple. Skate Canada, gov-
erning body of the sport, invited
the Kings to Ottawa for the week-
end to mark the 60th anniversary
of Scott King's winning of the
Olympic gold medal at St.
Moritz. The highlight of the
weekend will be an elegant ball.
Scott King and her husband will
sit at the head table of Otto
Ditz, Austria's ambassador to
Canada.
To say Scott King is legend is
an understatement. After the
1948 St. Moritz Olympics,
Canada found its queen, of figure

successor
to the great
Norwegian
star, Sonja
Henie. At
11, she won
the
Canadian
Junior


Championship, and two years
later became the first female
skater to land a double Lutz in
competition. From 1945-48, she
won North American figure skat-
ing titles and was awarded the
Lou Marsh Trophy as Canada's
outstanding athlete in 1945, 1947
and 1948. She has been inducted
into the Canadian Olympic Hall of
Fame, Canada's Sports Hall of
Fame and the Canadian Figure


Skating Hall of Fame.
For all she has accomplished,
she insists that the conversation
turn to her handsome husband.
Tom King, a well-known mover
and shaker in Chicago, was presi-
dent of the world-renowned Mart
Center: The Merchandise Mart
and the Apparel Center in
Chicago and the Washington
Design Center. Prior to his busi-
ness career he was a successful
collegiate athlete, played profes-
sional basketball, served as an
officer in the Marine Corps dur-
ing World War II and the Korean
War and has been involved in
numerous corporate and philan-
thropic boards. He is still active
as chairman and CEO of the
prestigious commercial real
estate company Seay and
Thomas Inc.
Second only to his wife, King's
passion is music and, especially,
his drums. He has always loved
music and as a young man was
told by his coaches he would
have to choose either his music

time around. But more then 60
years later he indulges his pas-
sion for jazz music. With a good
friend, Harry Goldson, he put
together a group of talented
musicians and formed The Royal
Chicagoans.
Why the Royal Chicagoans?


King will tell you with a charac-
teristic twinkle in his eye,
"Because their combined musical
talents are worth a king's ran-
som." They have produced four
CDs - One More Time, One
More Time Volume II, One More
Time Volume III, and One More
Time Volumes IV and V.
When Scott King left pro skat-
ing in 1955 and married King,
she did not give up competition.
She groomed, trained and rode
horses at shows for 30 years.
They both share an enthusiasm
for golf. They balance their still
busy lives between their homes
on Amelia Island and in Chicago.
We treasure our island royalty.
