Plot thickens. Auditor resigns; drug records found?


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
The internal auditor overseeing
a now months-long review of
Nassau County Animal Control - an
audit possibly delayed by missing
records - has abruptly resigned.
The missing records, including
those that would detail use of a
drug that can be abused by
humans, have now been located -
or not - depending on who you talk
to.
The maneuvering to take over
Animal Control continues, with


county commissioners still unde-
cided whether to grant that author-
ity to Sheriff Tommy Seagraves.
Auditor Cynthia Ossenfort left
Feb. 8, the same day she submitted
her resignation. In a letter to her
boss, Clerk of Court John
Crawford, Ossenfort wrote, "It is
with regret that I submit my resig-
nation effective today, Feb. 8, 2008.
It has been an honor working for
you and with everyone in the court-
house. Thank you for providing me
with the opportunity to work with
you and for Nassau County."
Crawford said the resignation


came while he
was away at an
education confer-
ence and that
Ossenfort "will
be missed. She
was a real profes-
- sional. Cynthia
Ossenfort was a top-drawer
staff member and
brought a new
dimension to the office."
Ossenfort "was not fired" and
did not resign under duress - "I
hope not. At least not by me!"
Crawford said.


The audit is now in the final draft
stages and under review by a for-
mer member of the internal audit
department currently with the
county's treasury office, said
Crawford.
Ossenfort took the job with the
county in December 2006 after 18
months traveling the world with
Catholic Relief Services. She also
headed up the audit of the coun-
ty's volunteer fire departments,
uncovering sloppy recordkeeping,
poor accounting practices, lack of
oversight and, in one instance, pos-
sibly criminal activity.


The audit of Animal Control was
wrapping up when she suddenly
left. She had attended a county com-
mission meeting earlier that week
with Crawford, at one point taking
the podium to correct Seagraves
about the status of the audit.
She said the audit was in its final
review and not shelved, as
Seagraves had mistakenly sug-
gested to commissioners.
Ossenfort previously indicated
the audit was taking longer to com-
plete than the one month they had

Coping with tragedy part of the job


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
It takes a strong will - and a
strong stomach - to work as an
emergency responder, whether a
firefighter, police officer or para-
medic.
"We see things that won't be
on TV, that are too graphic for the
news," said Nassau County Fire
Chief Chuck Cooper.
Cooper said responders have
to learn to remove themselves
from the scene. But that's easier
said than done, especially when a
call involves the death or serious
injury of a child, or someone the

responder knows.
Because of the sometimes dis-
turbing situations police, fire-
fighters and paramedics respond

Where's the beef?


Not in local schools


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
A national recall of beef, includ-
ing 37 million pounds distributed
to school lunch programs, affected
one product served in district
schools, Nassau County Food
Service Director Allyn Graves said.
The product, a beef and bean
burrito, has been pulled from the
inventory, Graves said. Other than
that, "None of our (beef) products
came through that packaging com-
pany."
Westland/Hallmark Meat Co.,
based in Chino, Calif., issued the
recall Feb. 17 in what is being called
the largest for meat in U.S. history.
The problems have been traced to
the mistreatment of cattle at a
slaughterhouse.
A federal investigation found cat-
tle had been abused with electric
prods, beaten and forklifted into
standing up to pass inspection. The
investigation was prompted by a
secret video taken by the Humane
Society of America at the plant.
The New York Times reported


A California company
has recalled 143 million
pounds ofraw and
frozen beefproducts.

the company agreed to recall 143
million pounds of raw and frozen
beef products dating back to Feb. 1,
2006, after the Humane Society of
the United States obtained evidence
the company violated humane han-
dling requirements.
Officials with the Department
of Agriculture determined most of
the recalled beef had been con-
sumed and have deemed the recall
"Class II," meaning a remote danger
of illness from consuming the meat
exists. No specific I r ..-. have
been linked to its consumption.
Numerous school districts in
Florida and Georgia, including that
in Duval County, have pulled beef
lunches from their menus.
Nassau district schools were
closed Monday for Presidents' Day.

ing for employees, as well as hav-
ing access to a "critical incident
stress debriefing" team that works
out of Jacksonville.
Tony Griffin, a medic engineer
with Nassau County Fire Rescue,
remembers responding to a vehi-
cle accident that involved friends
- a woman and her two daugh-
ters. The mother and one of her
daughters died, the other daugh-
ter - a friend of Griffin's daughter
- survived.
"You want the short version of
what it's like?" Griffin said. "It
sucks, it sucks, it sucks."
Griffin said when he arrived at


the wreck that claimed the lives of
Samantha Hitch and her 7-year-
old daughter, Shelby Hitch, he just
went to work.
"Once I got on the scene, I still
had to do my job," he said. "It's
kind of hard to stay focused."
After working at the accident
scene, Griffin took advantage of
his access to critical incident stress
debriefing; he said he's used it
other times as well.
"(The job) gives you a great
respect for life, life is too short
and you never know what's going

'Vision'



for the



county
GLENDA S. JENKINS
News-Leader
Nassau County residents
received a formal opportunity to
give their opinions about the coun-
ty's future Monday. Dozens of cit-
izens attended a Vision 2032
charette at Yulee High School, the
first of eight scheduled, to jot down
ideas in 11 categories.
Residents received blue adhe-
sive dots to mark the three issues
most important to them. Then they
walked around the room, writing
their ideas on large, easel-sized
pieces of paper.
Some comments dealt with spe-
cific, often immediate, requests
such as no U-turn signs in particu-
lar locations. Additional comments,
"Put more $ into music programs,
especially FBHS award-winning
band," and "Law enforcement does
a fine job in our county," for exam-
ple, appeared special interest in
nature. While other statements like,
"Bridges safety," addressed the top-
ics in broad generalizations.
"I don't like to see them cut
down all the trees," said Susie Davis
of Yulee. "If they remove all of that,
we'll be sitting here with just hous-
es."
Davis' family has lived in Nassau
County before her oldest brother
was born 84 years ago. She came to
the meeting with neighbor Laura
Rhodes on behalf of her grand-
children and great-grandchildren.
"I'd just like to see it better for

Responding to, and dealing with, anything from car accidents
to murders to drownings leaves police officers, firefighters
and paramedics looking for help handling their emotions.


RESPONSE Continued from 1A
infants, toddlers ... that very eas-
ily could have been my son or
daughter."
The critical incident stress
debriefing is conducted by a
group of seasoned firefighters and
paramedics who have learned to
counsel others after a tragic call.
Employees also have access to
local chaplains who work with law
enforcement and fire rescue, and
the Employee Assistance
Program, which provides profes-
sional counseling for employees.
Cooper said the tide has
turned since he began his career
as a firefighter in 1978, including
the recognition that emergency
responders sometimes carried
with them in their mind the vic-
tims they've seen. Department
heads now realize that emergency
responders do have emotions.
"I thought you just sucked it
up and kept going," he said. "No
one really ever talked about emo-
tion ... now we know it's OK to
share, it's OK to cry."
Department heads can sug-
gest, or insist, employees get
counseling if they feel an incident
deeply affected them. "In my past,
I have ordered big tough guys ...
to the psychologist," said
Fernandina Beach Police Chief
Jim Hurley. "Sometimes they
don't want to volunteer to go, they
don't want people think that they
were affected by something."
Responders often identify with
a certain victim because the vic-
tim reminds them of someone
they know - they may have a child
of the same age, or the victim
could remind them of a grand-
parent, or a spouse. Cooper said
he encourages employees to call
their families after stressful inci-
dents.
Sometimes, the emotion
proves to be too much for an
employee and they leave the field.
But with ride-alongs required as
part of training, Cooper said most
people who won't want to deal
with that are going to realize that
before they're hired and look for
another career.
But even after they make it
through training, nothing com-
pares to actually doing the job.
"There's nothing you can do to
prepare a young man or woman to
tell somebody that their baby is
not alive anymore," he said.
Even emergency dispatchers,
who take 911 calls but don't go
to the scenes themselves, can be
affected by traumatic incidents.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy


No one really ever
talked about emotion...

NASSAU COUNTY FIRE CHIEF
CHUCK COOPER

Seagraves said he once had a dis-
patcher quit after taking a call
from a mother who, while sleep-
ing, had rolled onto her baby and
suffocated the child.
Seagraves said it's been hard,
but he's learned to "put a block
up" mentally to keep emotions in
check.
"How are you going to help
someone else if you're getting so
upset over a situation?" He said.
He recalls a vehicle accident
that killed a young boy he
responded to earlier in his career.
"It was tough to deal with it,"
he said. "I couldn't go to sleep at
night, but you keep seeing similar
things over and over and eventu-
ally you learn to deal with it, but
some can't... it doesn't make that
person weak. I guess it's a per-
sonality difference."
Griffin recalls something he
learned during a stress debriefing
that has helped him deal with the
harder parts of the job.
"The decision was made
before we left the firehouse on
what is going to happen," he said.
"As long as you've done your job
to the best of your ability, you
should be able to hold your head
up high ... you should have a clear
conscience about whatever hap-
pened."

them," she said.
Her community needs recre-
ational areas and libraries. "We don't
have that in Yulee," she said.
And Davis and Rhodes want
there to be jobs and "more afford-
able places" to live. "Single mothers
can't find places to live," Davis said.
Chris Clayton moved to
Fernandina from Jacksonville about
a year ago.. "You can see the devel-
opment going on.... It just breaks
my heart," she said. "I don't want to
see it covered up by strip malls."
The environment and growth
management are priorities for Diane
Goldman, who one year ago moved
to the county from Miami.
Developers "need to be responsi-
ble for school facilities, land and
infrastructure," she said.
Education and school facilities
"are major," Goldman said, express-
ing concern that the elementary
and primary schools in Yulee are
"very crowded."
Goldman, a teacher at Yulee
Primary, said the school district "has
to look at the growth in Yulee....
Maybe there wasn't a plan for the
growth."
"I have an active interest in the
community because all my mem-
bers live here," said the Rev. James
Payne, pastor of Friendship Baptist
Church on Miner Road in Yulee.
"I have a responsibility to see
that (church members) get the best
quality of life," said Payne, who
resides in Georgia. Growth "is
always good," but "we need to re-
member to keep our natural barriers
and not steam roll over history."
"I wanted to represent Sandhill/
Evergreen," said George Mason,
who came back to his birthplace
four years ago after retiring from
the military. Soon after moving from
Miramar back to Sandhill, he asked
county commissioners to build a
fire station on CR 108. "Nothing has
materialized," Mason said. "It seems
we've been somewhat forgotten."
Residents there "pay a higher


premium for insurance" because
the closest fire station is "so far
away," on US 17 North and Pages
Dairy Road, he said. "By the time
they get from Yulee" to fight a fire,
"the damage has already been
done."
No parks and recreation exist in
that area, Mason said. "We are
somewhat alienated from everybody
else."
The Rev. Emory Wingard walk-
ed around the high school cafeteria
pondering what he wants to see
Nassau County look like in 2032.
By then, "I'll be in my 70s... I'm liv-
ing here now and I don't have any
plans to leave," he said, noting that
his family is "working on the fourth
generation" of Nassau County
natives.
The county will need increased
public safety because "growth
brings on crime related to that," he
said. Wingard also hopes improved
educational opportunities will create
service jobs that "can be filled by our
kids coming along.... They're going
to need a place to fit in," he said.
"In this county, as a black male,
you don't find many places to fit in,"
Wingard said. "They love you as
long as you're playing sports."
Black men "can try to fight for
the few industry jobs, but that's
nepotism at it's best," he said. After
that, "if our people don't take advan-
tage of the educational opportuni-
ties, they have a place for us to fit in.
They have provided the place to fit
in," he said, referring to the county
jail where he visits as a clergyman.
"A black man locked up, it does
something to me. It's not natural.
"I blame us for the majority....
Sometimes I think they only finish
what we start," Wingard said,
explaining, he would like to see
"something that's going to stop that
cycle" by 2032, "I don't want to see
them on the streets."
A second public meeting on the
vision plan was scheduled for
Tuesday night in Hilliard with oth-
ers to follow this spring.

PLOT Continued from 1A
originally intended due to Animal
Control records being in a mess.
According to a Nassau Humane
Society review of the facility in
January, three years of drug con-
trol and euthanasia records were
missing.
But Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
said Tuesday two members of a
committee formed to help him
research taking over administra-
tion of Animal Control found 22
boxes of records in the shelter's
attic and in Interim Director Rhett
Holden-Dodge's office.
Seagraves said Mimi Vitale and
Lynda Mixson found the records
after making a freedom of infor-
mation request to the county.
Debbie Moody, head of public
records for the county, accompa-
nied them at the shelter and in
Holden-Dodge's office, said
Seagraves.
The records were "mysteri-
ously located in the attic," said
Seagraves. "They were there all
along ... is what they are trying to
tell us," he said of county staff.
However, shelter office man-
ager Deidra Mauldin said Tuesday
that to her knowledge nobody
from Seagrave's committee has
been in the shelter, Holden-
Dodge's office or the attic.
"They have not been up here.
They have not been here at all.
Nobody has been in Rhett's office.
The only time I've seen Mimi was
on (Feb. 9) when we had an adop-
tion day, and she didn't even come
inside. Everything was outside,"
said Mauldin.
Moody said she did not accom-
pany them to the shelter "I didn't
even know they were over there,"
she said.
Holden-Dodge is on a vacation
that was planned before he took
the interim position after Brenda
Rothwell was relieved of her direc-
tor duties in October over allega-
tions of mismanagement, including
sloppy recordkeeping.
Holden-Dodge said Tuesday
the records claimed as "found"
were not the ones that were miss-
ing. He said records at the shelter
when he took over Nov. 1 were
initially put in the attic, then


removed for the clerk's audit and
then taken to the county's storage
annex.
"I don't believe they found the
missing records, which is the
euthanasia log books for 2007 and
2006," said Holden-Dodge. '"The
euthanasia log book has not turned
up and that would tell you about all
the drug use that took place - the
Ketamine and all that," he said,
referring specifically to a drug
used to anesthetize animals prior
to euthanization. Ketamine, a hal-
lucinogen, is also used as a recre-
ational drug by humans.
Moody confirmed Tuesday she
does not have any such log.
County Coordinator Ed
Sealover said previously the coun-
ty's records storage areas and
the shelter had been searched
and the records not found, and he
had assigned Moody to methodi-
cally go through every box in stor-
age.
Asked about the matter
Tuesday, Sealover said, "I'm going
to take the sheriff at his word and
that he has found everything that
is missing." County commissioners
admonished staff at a meeting last
week after Seagraves claimed to
have found the records.
County staff will meet with
Seagraves and his committee on
Feb. 27 at 9 a.m. in county com-
mission chambers to discuss his
proposal to take over operation of
Animal Control.
He had planned to hire former
Jacksonville Animal Control divi-
sion chief David Flagler as shelter
director at a salary of $60,000. But
Flagler has since taken a job in
Alachua County for $85,000, said
Seagraves.
"Which is a sad situation for
us, because he had such a good
background," Seagraves said. "We
have got a lot of applicants," he
added, and he and his committee
members will review those and
"choose the right one" - if he ends
up taking over Animal Control,
said Seagraves.
Depending on the outcome of
next week's meeting, "we can
either take it (his proposal) off
the table or move forward," he
said.

A voice for concerned citizens


I have been writing a busi-
ness/financial column in the
News-Leader for 14 years
now, providing a citizen's
perspective on important issues.
I've written about the econo-
my, the environment and every-
thing else with a local financial or
business angle. I've covered the
World Trade Center attack, the
mortgage meltdown and the
"dot.com" collapse.
I don't make personal attacks.
I even try to leave individual
names out of columns. In this
way, it's all and only about the
issues.
However, I must take issue
with a recent Viewpoint (Feb. 13)
by Nassau County
Commissioner Mike Boyle. In
the article, Boyle accused me of
misrepresentations and employ-
ing "gutter politics" in a column I
wrote about the passage of
Amendment 1 - the landmark
anti-tax initiative.
* 1. I am not a political "oppo-
nent" as he wrote. I have never
even met Boyle, and have not
taken part in any political cam-
paigns. Therefore, his contention
of me using "gutter politics" has


little rele-
vance. He's
the one in
political
office, not
me. Not only

office. I have
no intention. I am quite comfort-
able with my successful financial
career. I write my column as a
"voice for concerned citizens of
Nassau County," as one reader

* 3. Boyle contends he's been
instrumental in lowering taxes
during his short time in office

promise). Indeed, county offi-
cials have recently made some

columns. It would be unfair to
ignore others' contributions
(such as county Clerk of Courts
John Crawford) while giving
Boyle or any commissioner
exclusive credit.
Boyle was apparently irked by
several references I used in my
column: the first was about politi-
cians who run on anti-tax plat-
forms and then forget the vow
once elected; a second was about
Amendment 1 hindering local
officials who are eager to heap
taxes on the citizenry. These
"misrepresentations" (as he
called them) were not aimed
directly at Boyle or anyone else.
They were general, but accurate,
statements. The literary shoe
was not meant to fit him.
Ironically, Boyle has been an
outspoken critic about the pas-
sage of Amendment 1. This is

especially perplexing because he
ran on anti-tax campaign. Here is
a passage from one of his cam-
paign fliers (submitted by a read-
er):
"We've got to stop SPEND-
ING MORE than we collect," the
flier from Boyle read. He cited
how the county's taxes/expendi-
tures increased by 146 percent
from 1997 to 2004, while the
population here grew by only 23
percent during that time. Now,
that's a "heap" of taxes and
spending.
Amendment 1 just gave Boyle
and other tax-cutting officials an
excuse to do what they have set
out to do - reduce taxes and
spending, and have an alibi. This
should be a politician's dream.
(Boyle has said he is concerned
the widespread cuts of Amend-
ment 1 may be difficult to accom-
plish.)
I've received numerous phone
calls and e-mails since Boyle's
opinion piece. They have been in
support of my column. I'd like to
conclude with an excerpt from
one of the e-mails, from a resi-
dent who has supported Boyle.
(No, this is not a misrepresenta-
tion.)
"I appreciate all of your
efforts to call attention to the
many problems we have in
Nassau County," the reader's e-
mail said. "These efforts should
be applauded, not ridiculed in a
personal attack by
Commissioner Mike Boyle.
"His recent editorial, 'Gutter
politics ignore the facts,' is
beneath the dignity of an elected
public official. He is certainly
free to have a contrary opinion,
but his tone and sarcastic com-
ments were uncalled for. ... This
outburst shall surely have politi-
cal consequences for him in the
future.
"Please keep up the good
work being a voice for concerned
citizens of Nassau County."

Youth facility refocuses teens
HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader PL , -


Residents at the Nassau Juvenile
Residential Facility will be on their
best behavior, hoping to earn the
right to enjoy the new Honors
Room where they can watch the 52-
inch plasma television or play pool.
"Youths spend six months here,"
said Program Director James
Payne. "We teach
them about
choices and con-
sequences."
"Our mission
is to help individ-
uals and families
live more mean-
ingful, productive
Payne lives."
Defined as an
alter native to
incarceration for Nassau County
juvenile offenders between the ages
of 14-18, the facility has space for 24
youths.
Referred to the facility by court
order, youths are given the oppor-
tunity to change their lives in posi-
tive ways by learning to properly
vent feelings and chart growth
through individual, group and fam-
ily counseling.
One resident said his time at
NJRF has helped him learn respon-
sibility and how to say no to bad
behavior through roadblocks.
"They teach you a lot," said the
youth, who is now hoping to go to
college.


"Think I'll let that native land agent be my guide."

DR.1DOBSON ANSWERS*YOUR QUESTIONS


Q UESTION:What's the
appeal of all 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 that
TV special was the murder of a
woman, eight-months pregnant, who
was brutally stabbed in the abdomen.
Why would anyone want to see such
brutality? The popularity of that pro-
gram and others like it speaks dra-
matically about the depravity of the
American people and our lust for vio-
lence.
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 i

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 dis-
aster.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.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2008/NEWS-LEADER


VIEWPOINT/MICHAEL REAGAN


What would Ronald Reagan do? Back McCain


In 1976 the Ford vs. Reagan
campaign for the Republican
presidential nomination got
so heated it looked as if my
father and Jerry Ford would
never again talk to one another.
When it was over and Ford
had won, what did Ronald
Reagan do? He simply went all-
out to help Ford win his re-elec-
tion, as did I and as did my sister
Maureen. My dad simply fol-
lowed his rule of backing the
Republican candidate no matter
who he was.
Assuming that John McCain
will be the Republican nominee,
you can bet my father would be
itching to get out on the cam-
paign trail working to elect him


+


even if he disagreed with him on
a number of issues.
Unlike my father, a lot of con-
servatives stayed home in 1976,
and we got four years of Jimmy
Carter, whose main legacy was
to drive the Shah of Iran from
power and create the Islamic
Republic of Iran with a bunch of
wild-eyed mullahs running the
show. He also gave us 20 percent
inflation and long, long lines at
the gas pumps. And don't forget
440 days of Americans held
hostage by the mullahs.
By staying home those con-
servatives made possible the
future election of Iranian
President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad.
We are still suffering from the
legacy of James Earl Carter,
thanks to the conservatives who
refused to follow Ronald
Reagan's example and instead
sulked at home while the nation
was being handed over to the
worst president in American his-
tory.
We were still in the middle of
the Cold War in those days, and
by staying home conservatives
risked losing that war by allow-
ing an incompetent leader to

become commander in chief.
Four years later Ronald
Reagan took over, the hostages
were immediately released,
and he went on to win the Cold
War. Now we have another
world-wide war going on with a
hidden enemy sworn to kill us
all, and the policy of the
Democrats running for the presi-
dency is to throw up their hands
and withdraw from the battle-
field, leaving it to the enemy -
and our fate in the hands of
Osama bin Laden.
Is that what the let's-stay-
home-on-election-day conserva-
tives want? Do they want the
most liberal member of the U.S.
Senate, Barack Obama, as their
president? Do they want the
pseudo-Marxist Barack Obama -
who reportedly has a photo of
the murderous Castroite thug
Che Guevara hanging in his
Houston, Texas campaign head-
quarters - hanging that photo in
the Oval Office?
Do they want Hillary Clinton,
the duplicitous former first lady,
back in the White House enjoy-
ing all those furnishings she and
her husband tried to swipe from
the mansion?
Do they want a Democrat
spending even more money that
the government doesn't have on
scores of programs right out of
Karl Marx's playbook?
That's exactly what they'll get
if they sit out the election and
stay home on Election Day.
That's called biting off your nose
to spite your face. Or even more
to the point, political suicide.
Let me say this. There has
been plenty of battling in the pri-
maries, and I've been in the mid-
dle of the battle, but until now

[Essential services vs. budget cuts


On Jan. 29, a majority of voters in Nassau
County made it clear that they have grave
concerns about how local government is
using its funds. Few disagree about the
importance of essential services - from roads to
police protection and libraries to animal control -yet
many remain convinced that county tax revenue has
not been sufficient to support our infrastructure.
During the last three years that I've served as
president of Friends of the Library in Fernandina
Beach, I've worked to learn about government budg-
ets and how things get funded. Here's what I've
learned about the library portion of our county's
budget.
The library system represents about 1 percent of
Nassau County's annual budget, but we have invest-
ed $20.49 per capital on library funding, quite a bit
short of the national average of $31. Staffing levels in
the Fernandina Beach branch are half of what the
Florida Library Association (FLA) considers the
minimum required to serve our population. The
Fernandina Beach branch library is not even half the
minimum size recommended by the FLA at just 0.25
square feet per capital. FLA's recommended range is
a minimum of 0.6 square feet per capital to 1 square
foot for a truly exemplary library.
Since the year 2000, population has continued to
increase in Nassau County, but the library budget
has decreased - not only per capital, but in actual dol-
lars. The book budget was $58,000 for the
Fernandina Beach branch library in the 2002-3 fiscal
year. We now have a $55,500 book budget for the
current 2007-8 fiscal year and have lost the entire
$9,452 budget for subscriptions. Even though the
Friends of the Library and two local restaurants are
providing funds to soften the shortfall, the bottom
line is that the library budget is decreasing yet
demand for library services continues to increase as

the Fernandina Beach branch
alone.
Why has library funding fall-
en when the population has
increased dramatically over the
past decade? As property tax
revenue has risen with the
growth in population and appre-
ciation of real estate values, how
has that increased revenue
been appropriated? How do our
other essential services com-
pare with other cities and coun-
ties in the region and national-
ly? Why hasn't an adequate
level of impact fees been collect-


ed for infrastructure needs that new residents have
and will demand? How will the city and county col-
laborate to "right-size" the Fernandina Beach
Branch Library for future generations? With no men-
tion of public libraries in our impact fee ordinance,
how will the county accrue funds for new facilities in
Yulee and elsewhere? All are legitimate questions.
Within the library world, we acknowledge that
information is critical to learning. We hope you'll join
us at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Fernandina Beach
Branch Library as we offer a program with elected
and appointed officials from the city of Fernandina
Beach and Nassau County to specifically address
funding issues and the status of the new library proj-

All citizens who have a vested interest in the quali-

way to help citizens understand how our tax dollars

in return. Clearer and direct information to all voters
will be a step forward in helping us understand just
how our tax dollars are being invested - and how our
tax rates compare with similar communities. When

vote, let's improve our dialogue for better under-

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Walking the walk
We have too many stories of kids doing everything
wrong. This story is different. It is about two kids -
boys at that - doing everything right at Nassau County
Animal Control.
Both are young. Both are from the same family.
Both gave up a Saturday to help some dedicated adults
try to get dogs and cats, puppies and kitties adopted
from Nassau County Animal Control. And this is not
the first time they have helped us. This was a memo-
rable time for me, and I think they deserve some
thanks from our county. We at Nassau County Animal
Care and Control are literally overflowing with dogs
and cats, puppies and kitties. We need people who
will adopt our beautiful animals; we need foster parents;
we need helpers, and people with young hearts who
will help us find homes for our animals. Two boys,
Trenton Lanning and Tayib Simmons, helped.
How did they help? Well, they showed up for
starters to assist with our Adoption Day. They held our
dogs. They walked our dogs. Tayib gave me (an elder
adult) a helping hand with my new Razr when I need-
ed to check into my home base. No bad attitude. Just
a helpful attitude. Trenton brought Cokes and cook-
ies and sold them for a slight profit. His final profit was
$50. He donated that to us for the animals. He was total-
ly proud of himself, and we were so honored by his
wish to help. These boys helped us break down our
Adoption Day site. Tayib helped me gather my belong-
ings. Trenton held on to his plastic bag full of money
to be donated as if it were an Olympic Trophy. It was
to him. These guys could have gone to a movie or
played with friends or stayed at home. But they
chose the animals. They gave us their free time.
Amazing.
We have a lot to learn from our children. Humility,
honesty, courage and dedication to name a few. Over
the past few months, many have added to the voice of
dismay over Nassau Animal Control. Many have writ-
ten to this paper. Many have called me to voice com-
plaints. But these young guys did more than com-
plain. They showed up. They did the hard work. They
are teaching us adults a lesson by their actions. They
gave us their time, their talents and their goods. No
whining. Just a little "satisfied" grin that I saw when
the words, "Good job," were given to them. I was so
glad to be a part of their world. I love it when genera-
tions cross paths for the same cause. We need you,
Nassau County. We need your time and talents and
goods. Please show up.

Diatribe
Nassau County Commissioner Mike Boyle's dia-
tribe against Steve Nicklas and I ("Gutter politics
ignores the facts," Feb. 13) shows that Mike has his
head in the sand ostrich-like with a tornado coming
right for him (actually, ostriches don't do that; only
politicians who lack the courage to do what's right).
These are the pure facts that Mike denies:
* 1. A1A from US 17 to Amelia Island Parkway is
at failure by both state and county computations.
* 2. State and county laws prohibit adding more traf-
fic to failed roads.
* 3. The county commission continues to approve
developments that will add traffic to the failing roads
(e.g., Nassau Center, Yulee TradePlex, Shoppes at
Amelia and, possibly on March 10, the Marsh Lakes
strip mall).
* 4. County Attorney David Hallman admitted this
was "poor" policy, but the county had to approve these
projects because this is the way it had been done in the
past (I have the recording of the meeting in which he
said that). No commissioner challenged that opinion.
No commissioner had the courage to say if the policy
was "poor" it should be changed.
* 5. Letters have been sent to state agencies and the
governor asking for state intervention.
* 6. An investigator from the Florida Dept. of Law
Enforcement called Hallman on the afternoon of Jan.
31, obviously investigating the issue.
Mike ignores these irrefutable facts at his own
peril.
As for Mike's claimed tax "savings," repealing the
nickel gas tax had no effect on the relationship between
gas prices between Nassau and Duval, so therefore
there are no "savings," while the county now lacks $1
million for local road repaving; the $100 landfill assess-
ment was replaced by an $80 per year increase in
Stateline's garbage collection bill for many of us.
Mike's "savings" are mostly illusory.

Solution?
In response to "A1A Traffic poses serious risk"
(Feb. 6) by Michael Parnell, I have the solution.
The county and city Commissioners should make
it mandatory that all log trucks travel AlA and Eighth


Street only between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
There's no traffic at night and trucks can make
better time with no accidents.
End of problem.
Helene Scott

AlAtrafflc
I would like to respond to the letter "AlA traffic"
(Feb. 8). I agree that the traffic on AlA is getting
worse by the day. But restricting trucks to the right
lane is not the answer.
I used to haul timber into the mills. And at one mill
trucks entering one gate in a 24-hour period num-
bered 450. This survey was taken by the people who
checked the trucks in many years ago. I'm sure in this
year the number is higher. And that count was for
wood trucks, not counting the over-the-road trucks and
other delivery trucks.
If you restrict trucks to one lane you would have
trucks lined up all the way to 1-95. Also, you can't
restrict trucks to a time period. This would reduce the
drivers' pay tremendously. Some of these trucks work
at night only. When I'm in my personal vehicle I too do
not like to get behind a truck in the left lane that is try-
ing to beat another truck to the mill. But sometimes
it is unavoidable when a truck is trying to pass a slow-
er vehicle (truck/car) the light changes and the truck
is stuck in the left lane, until someone is courteous
enough to let him over.
I have noticed there are signs up now that read
"slower traffic keep left." This means all slower traffic,
not just trucks. But there again people are not cour-
teous enough to let the person over. For instance, if
someone is trying to go to one of the stores on the
north side on AlA this person has to get over early so
he/she will be able to make their turn. I have also
noticed that the sheriff's office has started to pull
trucks over and ticket them for being too slow in the
left lane. Well, again it is not only trucks going slow in
the left lane. I was very glad when the lights at A1A and
1-95 were installed. The speed limit there is 45 mph,
the average speed is around 55-60. The speed limit
through O'Neal is 45 mph; the average is around 50-
65. I clocked one chip truck traveling A1A at 70 mph.
I was concerned about getting a ticket myself so I
slowed down but the truck continued on.
The fact remains there is just too much traffic on
A1A
I propose an idea to the state/county/city, to build
a bypass for the traffic going to the mills and port.
Charleston, S.C., did this years ago, and the traffic in
Charleston is basically cars and local delivery trucks.
It's not fair to target one type of vehicle going slow
in the left lane. Everyone should be made to obey the
law. It is also going to be hard to determine which vehi-
cle is just traveling in the left lane or if that vehicle is
going to make a turn just up the road.
I acknowledge and agree this is not going to be an
easy solution. I suggest that the powers to be get
insight from all the people who travel A1A on a regu-
lar schedule.

Support Animal Control
After many articles, letters and Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves' viewpoint (Feb. 13), I feel compelled to
write a letter from a different viewpoint on Animal
Control. I am currently a volunteer at the shelter, and
was an employee of the shelter, so therefore I feel
comfortable in voicing an informed opinion. The sit-
uation at Animal Control is greatly improved. If there
is blame to be placed, it rests firmly on the residents
and commissioners of this county.
Residents are supposedly responsible for their
pets. They are required to maintain them. Animals,
unvaccinated and not sterilized, are at large every-
where in this county. With one to two officers to patrol
the county, and hiring freezes that kept the shelter from
being able to fill positions, what do the residents
expect?
I have been at the shelter on days where 25 or
more animals have been brought it. Please note that
these are animals that were the responsibility of a
resident of this county. They must be taken in; we do
not say no. They must be processed, vaccinated,
housed and fed. Imagine three employees responsible
for feeding and cleaning for over 200 animals and
being told to do so in eight hours five days a week, and
in four hours on Saturday and Sunday.
Employees and volunteers provide medical treat-
ment that may otherwise result in euthanasia, pro-
vide chicken rice, baby food and prescriptions that the
county cannot afford. They have also provided count-
less hours off the clock to try to do as much as possible
for a facility that is in poor condition operating at a level
way above capacity. There were often periods of more
than 18 days without a day off, in horrific working and
living conditions. How many people are willing to do
this job? To have piles of feces-covered laundry, to work

without air-conditioning in 100 degree heat with 100-
plus dogs defecating and urinating does not create
the most pleasant environment for the animals or the
workers.
When the shelter is full, decisions must be made.
Upon arrival at the shelter, an unwanted pet must be
accessed to determine if it is adoptable, can be fostered,
farmed out to a rescue or must be euthanized. It is nei-
ther pleasant nor rewarding to euthanize an animal that
has been taken in, to bag its body, put it in the freez-
er or take it to the landfill.
Residents, please call your commissioners, ask
when they have visited the shelter, because they have
only been once in the last year, despite it being such
a source of criticism. Ask why the building is in such
a dilapidated state when the former director was also
the department head of code enforcement. Ask what
other county department that operates 365 days a
year has been so poorly staffed, because there has not
been one. Ask why human resources cannot expe-
dite the process to get more people hired. Ask why we
have residents buying animals from pet stores and
financing them like furniture over time, when there are
ample animals of all types, breeds, and sizes available
for adoption via the shelter, the Humane Society, Rain
or any of our wonderful rescue groups.
Most importantly, ask yourselves, what am I will-
ing to do? It can be as simple as donations for medical
care, blankets, towels, time to walk and socialize ani-
mals, cleaning help, calling elected officials and
demanding that they go see for themselves and get
involved, or simply not getting a pet from a store if you
have any doubt that you cannot commit to a decade or
more of care. Rather than cast stones, would it not be
more beneficial to do something? Every resident can
do one thing. Please, before you criticize, step up and
offer a hand of support. It will be welcomed.

Uninspiring library
What about the condition of the collection at
Fernandina Beach Library? Fully five of 10 books I
check out have shattered spines, which allows for
large chunks of the book to fall out. The books are
nasty as is the interior of the building. Whereas peo-
ple used to come to the library to look for books or read
periodicals, now they come to listen to inane com-
mentary on the seven or eight computers that the
library somehow feels they have to make available to
any walk-in
Every flat surface is covered with stacks of books,
papers and periodicals in no order, which simply seem
to be there to preserve an image of dirt and disor-
ganization. Silence and contemplation are impossible
in light of the fact that there is always some kind of
Punch and Judy show or dramatic reading going. In the
final analysis one is left to stare at the pathetically
poorly stocked shelves, featuring shabby books, torn
and breaking spines, with a completely uninspired
array of items.
I've lived in seven different communities and the
Fernandina Beach Library is dead last in every cate-
gory. You don't need a new library, you need a leader
and a bonfire. The place verges on hopelessness,
unless you are looking for instructions on how to
roast a possum.

Dirty old man
"It's not a crime to hit on pretty girls." This is what
I heard when I went into the Fernandina Beach Police
Department to report a harassment issue. I am 28
years old and just moved up to this ignorant town.
I work at a local grocery store and since the second
day I have worked there an 88-year-old man has been
hitting on me. It started with him asking me to lunch
and me politely turning him down and then him giv-
ing me his phone number. Then when I said no he said
he wanted to talk to me without this counter in between
us and starts asking for my schedule, when are my
breaks and when do I get off of work. He has been
coming in twice a day for the four weeks I have worked
here and this type of interaction is happening every
day.
All he buys is milk or eggs and even if my line is 10
people deep he waits in it. He has told me I should dye
my hair red and everything else to match! All my
managers know who he is, and when he comes in
they come over to bag for me so they are all aware and
have heard him bother me. The last time he assured
me that he was not a child molester.
Not one manager will say anything to him so I did
and he still will not leave me alone. So today I went to
the police station and was told it is no crime for an old
man to hit on a young pretty girl even if she has repeat-
edly asked him to leave her alone. Apparently nothing
he has said falls under Florida statues as "vulgar."
Please, he is 60 years older than me. And when I
asked what would happen if I had a male friend talk to
him and ask him to leave me alone that if the old man
felt harassed he could have my friend brought up on
harassment charges. What is this? What kind of world
are we living in when a young lady in tears walks into
a police station asking for protection and they refuse
to even write a police report until I begged. This is why
young women do not report rape or harassment and
then end up getting killed and the police wonder what
happened and why it happened. I am at work in a
work uniform in pants that are two sizes too big, a shirt
buttoned up to my neck with a bow tie and I am ask-
ing for this. When will women be respected? When will
young women deserve protection?

Lent
Feb. 6 marked the beginning of Lent, the 40-day
period preceding Easter when early Christians would
abstain from meat and dairy in memory of Jesus' 40
days of fast and prayer before dying on the cross.
Jesus' powerful message of compassion and love for
all living beings applies more than ever in our time.
It's a time when animals are raised for food under
abject conditions of caging, crowding, deprivation,
drugging, mutilation and manhandling. When their
wastes foul the water we drink and the air we breathe.
When meat production accounts for 18 percent of
greenhouse gases. When most chronic killer diseases
are linked to consumption of animal products.
We can show our respect for Jesus' message by
embracing a wholesome, nonviolent diet of vegeta-
bles, fruits and grains first mandated in Genesis 1-29.
Lent provides a splendid opportunity to explore
meat- and dairy-free foods at our supermarket.

Pair arrested in


check cashing scam


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader

An Orlando man and woman
accused of coercing Fernandina
Beach locals to cash fraudulent
checks at local businesses were
arrested last week at a Yulee hotel
following an investigation by
Fernandina Beach detectives and
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
Police believe Torian D.
Williams, 43, and Altovise Tanisha
Leverett, 23, were operating a "trav-
eling check fraud operation,"
according to a statement released
Thursday by Fernandina Beach
Police Chief Jim Hurley.
"The couple is suspected of
enticing local persons to present
and cash fraudulent checks at area
businesses, under the premise that
a local person cashing a local check
will not be viewed suspiciously,"
Hurley said.
Police executed a search war-
rant at the suspects' hotel room at
the Comfort Inn on ALA and report-
edly found check-writing software,
blank checks, a printer and a com-
puter. A list of area businesses and
"phony" checks printed with the
names and addresses of some
Fernandina Beach businesses were
also found in the room.
Williams is charged with two


counts of grand theft, three counts
of attempting to utter fraudulent
documents and three counts of
counterfeiting documents.
Leverett is charged with being a
principal in the first degree and con-
spiracy to counterfeit documents.
Fernandina Beach Capt. David
Bishop said Monday there have not
been any reports so far of the sus-
pects' fake checks being success-
fully cashed at any local businesses.
Hurley said the two looked for
accomplices to cash their checks
at local homeless shelters and
looked for "other desperate indi-
viduals as they traveled around the
state."
Bishop said the FDLE is con-
ducting a statewide investigation
into other possible crimes the two
may have committed while travel-
ing.
"The accomplice was typically
offered $100 as payment for cashing
a legitimate-looking check manu-
factured in the hotel room by the
couple minutes before," Hurley said.
Hurley said the couple was
apprehended with the help of a con-
fidential informant.
Leverett and Williams are both
in custody at the Nassau County
Jail; Leverett is being held without
bond and also has an outstanding
warrant from Polk County for writ-
ing worthless checks.

Vandals glue all doors at Yulee High


SHANNON MALCOM
and GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader

Yulee High School employees
got an unpleasant surprise Friday
morning when they arrived to dis-
cover the locks to all the outside
doors - 75 total - had been van-
dalized.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said someone had glued
toothpicks into the locks.
Principal Diane Romon said it


was a $10,000 prank and she will
recommend the culprits be
expelled if they are students of the
school.
"They had to drill the locks out
and replace them and all that,"
Seagraves said. No arrests had
been made as of Tuesday after-
noon.
The prank caused school to
open 30 minutes late. Students
who rode buses to school
were dropped off later; others
were able to get into the school


gymnasium to get out of the cold
while waiting for the doors to be
replaced.
Using the school's public
announcement system Romon
offered a reward for information
leading to the arrest of the perpe-
trators.
"Some students came forward,"
Romon said, adding she believes
the case is "very close to being
solved."
Seagraves said two plainclothes
officers were assigned to the


school that day to investigate the
incident.
"Some information was devel-
oping," he said. 'They were work-
ing on it."
Romon said she doesn't think
the vandalism was meant to be ret-
ribution for anything school-relat-
ed.
In a previous incident the
school was vandalized by cul-
prits using animal urine, said
Romon.

and five people from Woburn,
Mass., including three children,
were seriously injured Sunday
after a two-vehicle accident on AIA
at the southbound on-ramp to I-
95.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Edwin Caban, 48,
of Woburn, Mass., was driving a
1996 Dodge and was waiting to
turn left from AlA onto the inter-
state. He turned left at the light
but did not see the 2001 Chevrolet
Tahoe, driven by Gusta Hemming,
50, of Hilliard traveling east.
According to a report of the
incident, Caban didn't see the SUV
because it was blocked by a semi-
tractor trailer traveling east along
the inside lane of AlA. When
Caban turned, the Tahoe struck
the Dodge on the right side; the
Dodge ran off the road and struck
a pole. The Tahoe rotated and
came to rest in the outside west-
bound lane of traffic.
Caban and Hemming, along
with Hemming's passengers,
Monica Hemming, 30, of Hilliard
and Caban's passengers -
Maroange Caban, 13, Linel Caban,
8, Emmanuel Caban, 12, and
Carmen Ramos, 43 - all of
Woburn, Mass., - and Kevin
Hemming, 9, of Hilliard, were
taken to Shands Jacksonville for
treatment of serious, but not life-
threatening, injuries.
The conditions of the victims
were not available at press time.

Inmate captured after 6 hours on lam


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader


After more than six hours on
the run, police captured an escaped
jail detainee in the trunk of a car in
Nassauville about 2:30 p.m. Friday.
John Kevin Davis Jr. was found
during a traffic stop of a car driven
by an unidentified female on CR
107, said Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves.
Davis, whose last known
address was 87684 Roses Bluff
Road in Yulee, was no longer wear-
ing his jail-issued red jumpsuit.
In the time since he'd escaped,
Seagraves said Davis broke into
the Fernandina Beach apartment of
a severely handicapped person and
hid in the closet, then called a 17-
year-old female for a ride into Yulee.
That girl has been arrested for
being an accessory to a crime. Her
name has not been released.
The woman driving the vehicle
in which Davis was found was
being questioned by police but had
not been arrested. Her name has
not been released.
Seagraves said Davis was unin-
jured and appeared to be in good
health.
Police had taken Davis to
Baptist Medical Center Nassau for
a cocaine overdose Thursday night
following his arrest on drug pos-
session charges. Seagraves said
Davis was foaming at the mouth
and his blood pressure had
dropped to 65 over 45.
He was treated overnight and
following his release from the hos-
pital about 8:15 a.m. Friday he over-
powered a deputy who had
removed Davis' restraints while he
changed into his jail jumpsuit.
As he ran barefoot from the hos-
pital Davis pushed anything he
passed along the way in front of
the deputy to slow his pursuit, said
Seagraves. Once outside in the
parking lot, Davis got into a car but
the deputy pulled his weapon and
Davis left the car and fled on foot.
Seagraves said the driver knew
Davis but police do not believe he
was involved in the escape. Davis
asked him for a ride but the man
refused, said Seagraves, and went
to a scheduled doctor's appoint-
ment at the hospital.
Seagraves said he believes
Davis simply saw the opportunity to
make a run for it and took it.

Police from
Jacksonville and
Camden County,
Ga., joined local
police in the
search for Davis
and lent a heli-
copter and K-9
units to the
Davis effort.
Davis is now
charged with
escape and burglary on top of his
arrest Thursday for possession of
cocaine, possession of cocaine with
intent to sell or distribute and pos-
session of less than 20 grams of
marijuana. He may also face
charges of false imprisonment for
the apartment break-in, said
Seagraves.
In the past two years Davis has
been arrested for several offenses,
including armed robbery, posses-
sion of cocaine with intent to sell,
grand theft and felony battery. Most
recently he was arrested Jan. 4 for
violating his probation on charges
of felony battery and possession of
a controlled substance with intent
to sell.
A telephone alert system - "A
Child is Missing" - meant to notify
city residents in an emergency
failed to work Friday morning, said
Fernandina Beach Police Chief
James Hurley. It is set up to make
5,000 calls in 10 minutes. Alerts
were placed on the city and police
websites.


Southside Elementary on near-
by Jasmine Street was temporarily
placed on lockdown, said Sharyl
Wood of the school district. That


was lifted just before 11 a.m. after
they were notified Davis was like-
ly "long gone from the immediate
area," she said.

Baby Gators'

need to grow up

fastto Dance"
I know it's frustrating,
Gator basketball fans.
Because with every
Florida loss, you probably
find yourself thinking, "If the
Oh-Fours had stayed for their
senior year, this wouldn't be
happening." And a three-peat
might have been on the hori-
zon had Joakim Noah, Al
Horford, Corey Brewer and
Taurean Green stuck around.
But you have to admit that
the current Gators, though
inexpedient at times, are fun
to watch and are sure to get
better. With that said, here are
a few observations on the
"Baby Gators," who probably
need to win three of their last
five regular-season games to
make the NCAA tournament:
1. Sophomore Dan Werner,
while he's a very good defend-
er who seems to give 100 per-
cent all the time, doesn't need
to shoot from outside of 10
feet. Not to slight the former
New Jersey "Mr. Basketball,"
but how many times has a
potential Florida run been
stalled by a missed three-
pointer from Werner?

It's just a matter
of time before
Parsons starts
taking minutes from
his teammates.

Florida Head Coach Billy
Donovan has made it known
that he tells his three-point
shooters to keep shooting,
even if the ball is not falling on
a particular afternoon. But
there have been many after-
noons and evenings over the
last two seasons when Werner
couldn't find the net from
behind the arc. For the good
of the team, he might need to
put his trigger on safety.
2. Though Werner seems
to enjoy playing defense, it's
evident that most of the rest of
the team would just as soon
rely on the Gators' offense
outscoring opponents.
Problem is, that plan doesn't
bode well when players leave
their shots in their dorm
rooms.
Donovan seemingly has his
hands full with a bunch of
guys who probably hit many
threes at the buzzer in high
school but never learned how
to cut off the baseline to pre-
vent a game-winning layup.
3. For all the hype
Marreese Speights receives
about his NBA potential, the
Gators' center has yet to show
consistency on the college
level. Just when you think the
big guy is ready to break out,
he follows up a 23-point show
against Tennessee with a six-
point performance against a
much weaker Georgia squad.
If the Gators are to make
the big tournament, Speights
will have to be the corner-
stone of a frontcourt to be
respected.
4. On the other side of the
hype coin is freshman
Chandler Parsons, who I
believe has the most upside of
any Florida newcomer outside
of his high school teammate,
Nick Calathes, who gets most
of the press. Not only can
Parsons shoot the three, the
kid has a Joakim Noah-like
first step to the basket. It's just
a matter of time before
Parsons starts taking minutes
from his teammates.
5. Despite being on the
receiving end of the bone-
headed backcourt violation
that ruined Florida's chance of
upsetting Vanderbilt Saturday,
the Gators wouldn't even be in
position to make the Big
Dance without Calathes. To
average 15 points, five
rebounds and six assists a
game as a freshman is nothing
short of remarkable. And what
might be most scary is that

v WRESTLING


Williams


places 5th


in Florida

BETH JONES
News Leader
Jack Williams took fifth place
in the state wrestling tournament
held last week in Lakeland. The
senior Pirate, a four-year letterman,
wrestles at 215 pounds. He placed
second in the region to qualify for
state.
"Jack leaves us after realizing
his dreams and accomplishing his
goals," said Mark Durr, Fernandina
Beach High School's wrestling
coach. "He will take his four years
of Pirate wrestling with him forev-
er.
"It was really neat that Jack's
dad, John, has been our coach. It
was a fantastic feeling to witness
Jack win his fifth-sixth place match.
It was even more special that John
was in the corner for Jack as it hap-
pened."
Williams wasn't the only Pirate
who qualified for the state meet.
Donnie Moore, a junior who wres-
tles at 171 pounds, was the region-
al champion and also earned a trip
to Lakeland.
"Donnie was one match from
placing fifth or sixth," Durr said.
'They both made it until Saturday.
Donnie lost to a guy from River-
dale. Their team won the state title.
"We are extremely proud of
these young men. Donnie will be
back next year to give it another
shot. This experience was very
beneficial to him as he saw the
great competition that goes to state.
We think next year he will be mak-
ing a very realistic run to come
back from state with a medal."


v BASKETBALL

Florida High

ends Pirates'

hoops season
BETH JONES
News-Leader
The Pirates made the playoffs
for the first time in 10 seasons but
the ride ended Thursday in Talla-
hassee, where the Fernandina
Beach High School boys basket-
ball team lost to Florida High 58-49
in the regional quarterfinal.
"It was pretty characteristic of
our season," Coach Matt Schreiber
said. "We trailed throughout the
game and did everything we could
to hang around.
"We had a little spurt. Trey
(Kublbock) hit a couple of threes
and defensively we started getting
them to turn the ball over."
The Pirates were up by four
with five minutes left in the game.
"What happens quite often, you
use so much energy trying to hang
around, I think we were a little
worn out. We turned it over a few
times. They got up four or five
points with a couple of minutes left.
We were forced to foul. We fought
to the end."
Sophomore Carlos Holcey led
the Pirates on the scoreboard with
14 points. Kublbock, a senior, and
Patrick Garvin, also a sophomore,
scored eight points apiece. Junior
Jake Brogdon chipped in seven.
Holcey also had four rebounds,
three assists and two steals. Chris
Keffer and Bruce Davis had four
rebounds each and Brogdon and
Kublbock pulled down three
boards each. Terin Dallas record-
ed three steals.
The Pirates were 19-9 this sea-
son.
"The whole team should be
proud of the season, but in partic-
ular the seniors," Schreiber said
'They got to the playoffs for the
first time in 10 years."
The Pirates lose four seniors,
Kublbock, Matt Brown, Steven
Rossmeissl and Bruce Davis.


Calathes has plenty of room
for improvement.
Imagine how good the kid
will be as a senior if he keeps
getting better.

Nobles fires 76 in blitz


for individual honors


The threat of rain and a few
sprinkles didn't deter the 71 play-
ers who took part in the
Wednesday blitz last week at the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club as
the winning scores might indi-
cate. With a good round of 76
and plus 13 points, PW. Nobles
was the individual winner. He
was closely followed by Rich
Vredenburgh, who had a 75 and
plus 11. Coming in third at plus 9
was Larry Gallo (81).
The winning team scores
were all in double figures led by
the team of Vredenburgh (plus
11), Sammy Alvarez (82, plus 3),
Carl Guth (82, plus 5) and Jim
Raffone (82, plus 4), which fin-
ished in first place at plus 23.
Although Nobles' plus 13 had
lots of help from Dennis
Moorehead (81, plus 6) and
Kenny Pickett (81, plus 6), the
minus 7 by Lind Swenson (92)
resulted in the team finishing in
second place at plus 18.
An all-plus team of Tony
Jarzyna (85, plus 8), Don Hart
(83, plus 6), Ron Dandurand (87,
plus 1) and Ron Peterson (85,
plus 1) came in third at plus 16.
There was a four-way tie at
plus 11 for fourth place involving
two five-man teams and two four-
man teams. The five-man teams
were John Bray (81, plus 6), Don
Cheshire (84, plus 2), Jack
Croake (84, plus 1), Scott
Tinman (92, plus 3), Roger
Arsenault (103, minus 1) and
Bob Best (83, minus 2), Rudy
Campanale (94, plus 4), Charles
Helenbrook (90, plus 6), Bruce
Hillis (99, plus 1) and Mike
Lovejoy (81 plus 2). The four-
man teams were Larry Luett (80,
plus 7), Joe Reilly (90, plus 5),
Don Stipcak (73, plus 4), Jim
Roberts (84, minus 5) and
Chalres Benefield (92, plus 3),
Allen Elefterion(85, minus 1),
Dick Peterson (96, plus 2) and
Tommy Purvis (83, plus 7).
The Friday turnout for the
blitz was even greater than
Wednesday with 81 players show-
ing up to play. Once again the
scoring was good as John
Vanderhoof shot a one-under-par
72, good for plus 11 points and
individual honors. Two players
tied for second at plus 10 -Tom
Gray (77) and Joe Reilly (92).
Once again all of the team
winners were in double figures,
headed by the team of
Vanderhoof (plus 11), who
received help from all of his
teammates, Steve Raszkin (90,
plus 1) and Jim White (92, plus 7)
and Dennis Moorehead (85, plus
3). The team finished at plus 22.
An all-plus five-man team of
Larry Brauda (76, plus 5), Larry
Gallo (86, plus 4), Sam DuBose
(90, plus 3), Ernie Behrens (102,
plus 2) and Rudy Campanale (91,
plus 7) finished one point back at
plus 21 and in second place.
With the two plus 10 individ-
ual winners on the same team -
Gray and Reilly -the t eam that
included Jim Edwards (89, minus
1) and Jack Harrison (89, even)
finished third at plus 19.
Fourth place went to another
all-plus team of Bob Best (79,
plus 5), Tony Jarzyna (88, plus
7), Damon Roberts (88, plus 3)
and Ben Shave (86, plus 3) with a
score of plus 18.
There was no Saturday
Morning Breakfast Mixer as the
men's association players took
part in a 27-hole tournament.
There were a number of winners
as 47 players from the white tees
and eight from the gold tees took
part. It seems fitting that the
gross winner for the day was
Tom Gross with a score of 102.
The overall net winner was Jim
Roberts with a 95.
Winners in the first flight,
with net scores, were Charles
Himmelheber (103), Carl
O'Rourke (104), W. Jones and
Michael Parker (105), Jerry
Dean (107), Ron Boatright, Dave
Mason, Larry Brauda (110).

In the gold flight, only net
scores were involved. The win-
ner was Bob Riley (98), followed
by Ron Peterson (107), Rich
Vredenburgh (108), Wayne

Howell III last yearwhen the tour- 3rd: Donald & Harrington
nament was called the Nissan Purse: $359,600
Open, shot a 1-under-par 70 at Riviera Country Club in Pacific
Palisades, California, to finish 12-under overall. Mickelson had a one-
-shot lead over Quinney entering the final round and opened a three-
shot advantage on the back nine as Quinney had four bogeys in a five-hole stretch
from the 13th to the 17th holes. Quinney closed his final-round 71 with a birdie to
finish 10-under, three shots better than Luke Donald and Padraig Harrington.


t The chip-and-run shot is one of
the most difficult parts of the game
to master, yet it is the part of our
game that we spend the least
amount of time working on. This
nonchalant approach to the chip
shot is what separates the cream
of the crop from the remainder of the field. Here
are a few easy steps to practice whenever you
have that difficult chip-and-run shot in front of
you. Narrowing your stance is the first bit of
advice. If you are a right-handed player, put more
weight on your left foot to keep the loft out of your
shot. When you are ready to take the shot, play
the ball inside your right foot with your hands
positioned ahead of the ball. Finally, make a putt-
like motion, keeping your wrists firm and strike
the ball with a clean, crisp stroke.


In what could amount to a compromise over the PGA Tour's divisive cut policy, players have --
recommended that the policy be changed to allow for a 54-hole cut when the field gets too
big. A tour official said last Wednesday that the 16-man Players Advisory Council, which met '2 S ,
last week at Riviera Country Club, wants to return to the traditional 36-hole cut of the top 70 and -
ties. If that results in more than 78 players, another cut on Saturday to the top 70 and ties would help
reduce the field for the final round. The policy board will vote on the proposal at its Feb. 25 meeting at
the Honda Classic in Florida. Because it relates to competition, the vote must get majority approval by five players
on the nine-member board. The field at PGA Tour events has been cut to top 70 and ties since 1969. That was
changed this year because of a dozen cases each yearwhen as many as 92 players made the cut, forcing the final
two rounds to be played in threesomes off both tees with rounds that lasted more than five hours.

OUTDOORS


PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Powerful boats were simply going airborne at the Miami Boat Show, center. Flats fishermen can now go 85 miles per hour in a re-designed "Bullet" bass boat, left, which now has fiberglass
decks and saltwater outfitting. Mercury Marine unveiled its new Verado 350 HP four stroke, right.




One powerful boat show held in Miami


t was the Daytona 500 weekend and I simply
dreaded the long interstate drive from
Northeast Florida to Miami. Two years ago,
hurricanes had damaged much of the eastern
coastline north of West Palm Beach. Construction
workers had the majority of motel rooms already
booked, causing me to spend a night on the road in
my vehicle.
Actually the first three hours of the drive went
fairly smooth, as I had planned to split the drive up
in to two three-hour trips. I spent the night in
Melborne, woke up bright and early the next morn-
ing and completed my six-hour drive.
I have to admit, though, Miami does have the
best boat show but it also has a big traffic problem.
The next morning I woke up bright and early at
4 a.m. I planned on being one of the first visitors to
the show and I was.
The first thing that hits visitors to the Miami
Boat Show as they enter the massive indoor show
is the fresh smell of fiberglass. This unusual smell
excites boaters into making a marine-related pur-
chase, just like the new smell of a brand new car
when the door is opened.
I will never forget the 1991 Miami Boat Show. I
eyeballed a neat 32-foot Topaz displayed in the mid-
dle of the show. The purebred fishing machine was


Terry Lacoss

OUTDOORS


the hit of the show. I made the
purchase and brought it back
to Amelia Island, where the
Topaz is still moored at the
Fernandina Harbor Marina 17
years later.
After spending a long day
walking around the show, both
inside, outside and upstairs
too, the one thing in particular
that stood out for the upcom-
ing boating season was quite
clear. Boaters will have the
opportunity to power their
boats with lots more horse-


power.
In fact, at the rear entrance to the show, several
center console kingfish boats were rigged with
multiple outboards that totaled well over a 1,000
horsepower. Inside the show, Mercury Marine
showed a video of a 38-foot Fountain center console
fishing boat outfitted with three Mercury Verado
350 HP outboards.
During the boat test, the driver would give the
Fountain full throttle while at a cruising speed of 50
miles per hour. You could visually see the heads
and necks of the driver and crew being jerked back


by the power of the massive outboards.
Both Mercury Marine and Yamaha now offer
four-stroke, 350 HP outboards. Mercury's big block
350 HP outboard was actually introduced at the
recent Miami Boat Show.
Velocity Powerboats introduced one of the
fastest bass boat hulls into the world of saltwater
fishing at the show as well.
"We had a lot interest by fishermen to cross
over into the saltwater market," said Steve Stepp,
president of Velocity Powerboats. "We have taken
away the carpet and made a fiberglass deck for salt-
water fishermen. We also altered the live well for
bigger fish. Rigged with a 250 horsepower out-
board, this 21-foot Velocity will reach speeds in the
mid 80s. This is actually our Bullet bass boat hull."
For a super fast ride, visit
www.velocityboats.com.
I also spent quite a lot of time in the marine elec-
tronics section. Fishermen and boaters will be
amazed at the new electronics, which are now
becoming the heart of every serious boat.
WxWorx mobile weather solutions is now mak-
ing it possible to view a monitor that shows wind
directions, speed, water depth and more important-
ly water temperatures. By moving the mouse on
the monitor, a world of weather and water tempera-


ture information is showcased on the screen.
Changing weather conditions are also given, alert-
ing boaters to serious weather conditions that may
cause unsafe boating. For information visit
www.wxworx.com.
Lowrance Electronics now has digital technolo-
gy that allows fish finders to show a clear picture at
speeds of 50 miles per hour and faster.
"Our new digital technology gets rid of all that
clutter that you normally see on fish finder
screens," Lowrance's Dusty Walker said. "You can
turn up the sensitivity and now see fish, structure
and bait fish much clearer, without marking all of
the clutter. Our new digital fish finders also can
read water depths well over a 1,000 feet."
For information on Lowrance Electronics, visit
www.lowranceelectronics.com.
It wasn't just big boats and motors at the recent
Miami Boat Show. All the major bay boat and shal-
low water skiff boat manufacturers were at the
show as well. Many fishermen call these "technical
boats" as manufacturers are always trying to dis-
cover ways of making their boats lighter, faster and
simply better fishing boats.
Yes, the need to fish shallow, go fast and enjoy a
smooth ride was quite evident at the show. The
Miami Boat Show is definitely worth the long drive.

Clean boat challenge
The BoatU.S. Foundation for
Boating Safety and Clean Water
has joined the Izaak Walton
League of America's campaign to
help stop the spread of aquatic
invasive species and is urging all
recreational boaters who trailer
their vessels to take the League's
"Clean Boats Challenge."
The challenge is a quiz at
www.CleanBoats.org that edu-
cates boaters and anglers on how
to inspect and clean their boats
to ensure that lakes and streams
are protected from non-native,
aquatic hitchhikers.
'Taking the Clean Boats
Challenge will give boaters and
anglers the information they
need to make personal choices
that can help stop the spread of
invasive species," said Susan
Shingledecker, BoatU.S.
Foundation director of clean
water programs.
In addition to the short and
easy-to-complete Clean Water
Challenge, the website also
includes information on how to
clean a boat properly and some
tips for trailer boaters. For exam-
ple, it is recommended that a
boat and motor be drained and
inspected for mud or plant life
before departing the launch
ramp. It then should be allowed
to dry completely for five days
before launching into a different
body of water.

ties may reach a written

'Quilts by the Sea'


What is more comfort-
ing than a home-
made quilt? You have
the warmth of layers
plus you have the love and care
that has been sewn in stitch by
stitch. Quilts tell stories. The
Amelia Island Museum of History
is currently featuring an exhibit,
"Our Lives in Fabric," featuring
antique quilts. The exhibit runs
through Feb. 28. I made an
appointment to meet the experts
from the Amelia Island Quilt
Guild and learn more about their
quilt show scheduled for Friday
and Saturday.
Pam Baity, Gail Niedernhofer
and Pam Wise bubbled with
enthusiasm as they showed me
the fine details in the quilts dis-
played in the museum exhibit.
Each quilt has a story. Niedern-
hofer, a volunteer at the Barnabas
Center, tells the story of two of
the quilts hanging in the muse-
um. It seems volunteers sorting
through donations to Barnabas
found two worn quilts and imme-
diately called Gail. They turned
out to be collectibles and quite
old. One man's trash is often
another man or woman's treas-
ure. How fortunate these two
treasures were rescued.
The three women talked about
their very active organization,
The Amelia Island Quilt Guild,
and the big event coming up -
"Quilts By The Sea" - to be held

The Plantation Ladies Association held its luncheon on Feb. 5 at the Ocean Club. Dr. Bill
Birdsong, a popular lecturer and docent from the Amelia Island Museum of History, gave a
group of 90 ladies insights into how archeological digs have enhanced our knowledge of the
Spanish mission period. Of particular interest was the role of the Spanish and their interaction
with the native Timucuan Indians. The entertaining talk was enhanced with slides and a dis-
play of actual artifacts of the period.

2004 sponsored a cookbook whose proceeds funded another
scholarship. Take Stock's nomination is a public way to pay
tribute to the members of the Newcomers Club of Amelia
Island and its commitment to participate fully in the commu-
nity they now call home. Take Stock in Children also nominat-
ed Dr. Dennis Fielder as Exemplary Volunteer Mentor and

The Copper Indian
The Copper Indian, a recently


released novel
by local resi-
6. dent J.P
Morgan, turns
... , the calendar
.,.. "back half
century to
when the
police used
profiling and
intuition, and
had fun even when some of their
actions exceeded moral ambigui-
ties.
The booking of a dead man,
manipulating the press and hid-
ing a dead body were not bad
enough, but giving a female
junkie drugs to persuade her
boyfriend to turn informant, and
submitting bogus expense
accounts could be considered
"crossing the line." These are the
types of situations that confront-
ed Jim Utze, an idealistic Native
American; first as a patrolman
and later as a narc. His values
crashed into the storied culture
of the NYPD in the 1950s and
'60s, when he became a "copper."
As the erosion of his integrity
accelerates, Detective Utze ques-
tions his continuing acceptance


of the system and he considers
leaving for the FBI.
Author Morgan has almost 40
years of law enforcement experi-
ence; half on the front lines at the
municipal, state and federal level,
and half in academia as a tenured
associate professor and depart-
ment chairman at one university,
and director of the police science
division at another.

STARS


Sophie, the sweetest lap
dog you will meet, is a 2-
year-old, 9-pound, tri-color
Chihuahua/terrier. She is
allergic to some grasses and
pines so she needs a
shot two times a month.
She almost looks forward to
her shots since she gets a
treat as a reward! Her medi-
cine is not very expensive so
if you are able to
help Sophie, you will find
in her a wonderful friend
and companion.
Save the Animals Rescue

CATS ANGELS


Hi everyone! My name is
Mew-Mew! My foster mom
calls me that because I like
to talk a lot and so Cats
Angels said I could tell you
all about the Open House,
which was a huge success!
We had so many friends and
new visitors stop by and
enjoy the refreshments and
beautiful day, but best of all,
11 Cats Angels cats found
homes! All the volunteers
were so happy for all the
adoptions, and some were
cats that have been at the
Adoption Center for awhile!
Thank you to all the volun-
teers who made this event
such a success! Since me
and my brother were not one
of the lucky ones, please
come see us. I am a sweet
little girl, gray and white, and
my brother in the homemade
hammock, Tracy, orange and
white. We are fixed and
ready for a home. Call the
Cats Angels Adoption Center
Monday-Saturday from 11
a.m.-5 p.m. or 321-2267 if
you would like to see us.
The Thrift Store is stocked
with Easter goodies for your
shopping pleasure as well as


many books, new and used.
The store is Monday-
Saturday from 11 a.m.-5
p.m. and we are always look-
ing for volunteers. A big
thank you to Nassau
Humane Society for the
donations of items that were
left over from their success-
ful Flea and Tick sale!
Spring is coming and so
will all the litters of kittens
and puppies with no homes
unless you do something
today to prevent it! Please
call Spay Nassau to qualify
for low-cost or free
spay/neuter assistance. If
you don't qualify, call Cats
Angels at 321-2267 to dis-
cuss options.

stories to tell as well as recipes
to explore. The beer book has
more recipes, but the sauce
book has more history.
The 185 recipes in Great
Food, Great Beer are paired
with beer just as you would
pair wine with food. Some-
times the recipe includes a
beer - from Anheuser-Busch,
of course - as an ingredient,
but with every recipe there is a
suggested pairing with a brew.
'The beer and food pairings
aim to create a balance of fla-
vors, so that a single flavor
never dominates but all the
elements of the beer and food
work together," the book main-
tains.
Presentation of the recipes,
many accompanied by a full-
page color photograph, could-
n't be better: clear and concise.
Here you'll find beer-basted
grilled angus strip, roasted
asparagus with lemon, pork
loin braised with cabbage and
a few desserts, such as grill-
baked apple crisp and raspber-
ry cheesecake.
Even though there are
fewer than 20 recipes in
Tabasco, there is much, much
more to savor. It is a beautiful-
ly crafted and profusely illus-
trated history of the founding
family, the Mcllhennys, and
the little bottle of hot sauce
that made the name Tabasco
and Avery Island, La., famous.
Actually, there are nearly 40
recipes - the original and the
updated version for this vol-
ume. Some are more than 150
years old. Of course, Tabasco
is an ingredient in all of them.
All manner of wonderful
-,.,I , li[ L., cartoons, bottle
labels and family photographs
- particularly those involving
military service - are
throughout the book. Tabasco
is a hot read.

Recipes from a few "celebri-
ties" pop up in the Tabasco
book, among them former first
lady Pat Nixon. This one,
updated from the original, was
distributed during her husband's
run for the presidency against
John F Kennedy in 1960.

PAT NIXON'S CORN
SOUFFLE

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose
flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
Pepper Sauce
1/2 cup milk
2 cups slightly thawed frozen
corn kernels
3 eggs
Preheat the oven to 375
degrees.
Melt the butter in a medi-
um-sized saucepan over medi-
um heat. Blend in the flour,
salt, black pepper, paprika and
Tabasco. Stir until smooth and
bubbly.
Stirring constantly, add the
milk and cook until the mix-
ture thickens, about 30 sec-
onds. Add the corn, stir to mix,
and remove from heat.
Separate the whites from
the yolks of the eggs. Beat the
whites until stiff and beat the
yolks until thick. Add the yolks
to the corn mixture, then fold
in the whites. Pour the mixture
into a lightly buttered 1-quart
casserole or 4 to 6 individual
souffle dishes, and bake until
the mixture rises, 30 to 35 min-
utes for the casserole or 15 to
20 minutes for individual souf-
fles. Remove from heat and


serve immediately. Makes 4 to
6 servings.

For casual dining, serve these beer-poached shrimp with hearty bread for dunking into the peppery cream sauce.


Flat beer is still useful for cooking


ANNETTE GOOCH
Universal Press Syndicate


Beer that's gone flat - lost its effer-
vescence - isn't worth drinking, but as a
cooking ingredient, it has real value. The
mild acids in beer make it useful for mari-
nating and for poaching, braising and
stewing. Beer can be used in the same
way as wine to flavor soups, sauces, stews,
chili and other foods as they cook. Using
beer in the batter for onion rings or frit-
ters helps break down the gluten in the
flour, resulting in a light, crisp, fried coat-
ing with good color.
If you need flat beer for a recipe, open
a fresh bottle or can and let it stand at
room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
Pour any unused flat beer into a lidded
glass container and store it in the refriger-
ator for future use.

Success tip
* When boiling liquid to reduce its vol-
ume and concentrate its flavor, use a wide,
heavy-bottomed pan to speed the reduc-
tion process. The wider the pan's cooking
surface, the more quickly the boiling liq-
uid will evaporate. A heavy-bottomed pan
also provides better control of heat than a
light, thin-bottomed one.

This dish makes a fine main course or,
when served with bread for dunking, a satis-
fying hands-on appetizer. If you're serving


beer to drink along with the shrimp, choose
the same brand you used in the recipe to
keep the flavors compatible. Any alcohol
remaining in the beer after the poaching
process will be driven off when the beer is
boiled to reduce it.

SHRIMP IN BEER AND
CREAM

2 pounds raw shrimp, peeled and
deveined
2 to 3 cups flat beer
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup whipping cream or half-and-half
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to
taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
2 tablespoons minced parsley
Country-style bread, sliced or torn into
chunks

1. To poach shrimp, place cleaned
shrimp in a wide, heavy-bottomed
saucepan; pour in beer to barely cover
shrimp. Add bay leaf, cover, and bring to a
simmer. Begin timing the cooking period
from the time the beer starts to simmer.
Simmer, uncovered, just until shrimp turn
pink, about 4 to 7 minutes. (Overcooking
shrimp toughens them.) Use a slotted
spoon to remove shrimp from poaching
liquid; reserve shrimp, discarding the bay


leaf.
2. Turn up heat to high under the
poaching liquid and cook rapidly, uncov-
ered, until only 1 cup remains, approxi-
mately 3 to 4 minutes. Remove reduced
poaching liquid from heat. In a second
saucepan over medium heat, melt butter,
add flour and whisk to make a smooth
paste. Gradually add the reduced poach-
ing liquid, whisking to prevent lumps; con-
tinue cooking and whisking until mixture
thickens and is smooth, approximately 2
to 3 minutes.
3. Gradually whisk in cream. Season
sauce to taste with salt, black pepper and
cayenne. Remove pan from heat; stir in
parsley. Add cooked shrimp to sauce;
return to heat and reheat gently before
serving with bread. Serves 6 to 8 as an
appetizer.

Beer batter gives fried onion rings rich
golden color and a faintly malty taste. It
can be used to fry boneless chicken or fish,
zucchini and other quick-cooking vegeta-
bles, or (if you reduce the amount of salt to
a pinch) apple rings. Ifyou don't have an
electric skillet or deep fryer, you will need a
candy or frying thermometer to monitor the
temperature of the oil.

BEER-BATTERED ONION
RINGS


thick
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 egg, separated
1 cup dark beer
1 teaspoon salt
Peanut oil, for deep-frying
Coarse salt


1. Soak sliced onions in milk for 3
hours. Drain; discard milk or save it for
use in soup or corn muffins.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk
together flour, egg yolk, beer and salt to
make a batter. Beat egg white until stiff
but not dry; fold into batter. Cover batter
and let stand at room temperature for 30
minutes before use. Note: Batter may be
mixed up to 24 hours ahead, covered and
refrigerated. Allow batter to warm to room
temperature before dipping onion rings.
3. Heat a large, deep pot or electric
deep-fryer or skillet filled with at least 3
inches of oil to 375 degrees. Dip onion
rings in batter; allow excess batter to drip
off. Fry a few onion rings at a time, avoid-
ing crowding, until they are golden and
cooked through, turning them once with
tongs. Use a slotted skimmer or tongs to
transfer cooked onion rings to paper tow-
els to drain. Sprinkle lightly with salt and
serve immediately. Serves 6.

Serving up cowboy mac and cheese


Trail drivers and other cow-
boys didn't have anything
approaching the luxury of multi-
course meals, something even
the most casual diner in Texas
takes for granted today. Had the
coosie, the nickname given to
the chuck-wagon cook, asked
cowpokes if they would like a
side dish with their entree, he
would have no doubt been
strung up from the nearest hang-
ing tree. Those trail drivers
would have thought that their
coosie had gone plumb crazy.
We're certain, however, that
chuck-wagon cooks were noth-
ing if not creative and adventur-
ous. Stories are legendary about
the wonders these early chefs
would work with practically noth-
ing. We have to assume that if
given the resources, their works
could have been as lusty and
indulgent as this Texas version
of mac and cheese.

Eating mac and cheese is
about as good as getting a big hug
from your favorite grandma - it
just makes you feel happy inside.


We like the smoky punch that the
roasted chilies give this mac and
cheese dish.

MAC AND TEXAS
CHEESES WITH
ROASTED CHILIES

4 poblano chilies
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalt-
ed butter
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups grated caciotta or
Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup goat cheese
Kosher salt
1 1/2 pounds cooked macaroni
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 cups grated Asiago or
Parmesan cheese

ROASTED CHILIES

Preheat the oven to 500
degrees. Place the chilies on a
greased baking sheet and cook,
using tongs to turn the chilies
after about 8 to 10 minutes, so


that they blacken evenly on all
sides. When blackened, remove
from the oven and seal the
chilies inside plastic bags for 10
minutes. Remove the chilies
from the bags and slip off the
blistered skins. When cooled,
remove the seeds and stems and
cut into strips.

MAC AND CHEESE

Lower the oven temperature
to 375 degrees. Using 1 table-
spoon of the butter, grease a
medium casserole dish and set
aside.
In a saucepan, heat the cream
and milk over medium-high heat.
In a separate saucepan, melt the
remaining butter over medium
heat. Whisk the flour into the
melted butter, stirring over medi-
um heat for approximately 1
minute. Slowly pour in the heat-
ed whipping cream, whisking the
mixture until it thickens. Remove
the saucepan from the heat and
stir in the caciotta and goat
cheese. Season with salt and set
aside.


In a large mixing bowl, com-
bine the macaroni, cream mix-
ture and green chilies, mixing
gently until well-combined. Pour
the macaroni into the greased
baking dish and evenly spread
the bread crumbs and grated
Asiago cheese over the top. Bake


for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the
top is browned.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Cowboy Kitchen" by Grady Spears

Medtronic has pulled its Sprint Fidelis defibrillation leads from the market
after fractures in the leads were linked to five patient deaths. Patients
with these leads may have received a warning letter from the manufacturer.
A fractured lead "can cause the defibrillator to deliver unneces-
sary shocks or not operate at all."
If you have a Sprint Fidelis lead, your Patient ID card should contain one of
the following four sets of numbers:
6930 * 6931 * 6948 * 6949
(These numbers may be shown at the beginning of a longer set of numbers on your ID card.)
In addition, the St. Jude Riata defibrillator lead has been reported to
punch holes in the heart and has been linked to at least
one death.
YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO
MONEY DAMAGES
