County residents


to save on drugs


News Leader
Nassau County will introduce
this spring a discount card pro-
gram to help consumers save on
the price of prescription drugs.
County Coordinator Ed
Sealover announced Feb. 20 the
county has signed a contract to
make prescription drug discount
cards available under a program
sponsored by the National
Association of Counties.
The cards, available at no
charge to county taxpayers, offer
average savings of 20 percent off
the retail price of commonly pre-
scribed drugs, he said.
The cards, which will be avail-
able in about eight weeks, may be
used by county residents regard-

Couple hopes to duet


on TV in Nashville


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Sherri and Terry Smith, otherwise known as the
Fernandina Beach country music duo Country
Connection, may not be the next American Idols, but
they threw their hats in the ring to become contestants
on an upcoming CMT reality television show called
"Can You Duet?"
The new show was conceived by the producers of
the now world-famous "American Idol," and it will pit
musical duos from around the country against each
other searching for the perfect duet.
"I think you perform one time together, then you
switch partners every single show and have to perform
with someone new," said Sherri Smith, the female half
of Country Connection. "It's really interesting, it's an
11-week series, whether we're on it or not, I'm definitely
going to watch."
In early January, the Smiths made the trek to
Nashville, along with thousands of other musicians, to
try out for the program. Sherri Smith doesn't know how
many couples will make the final cut.


'It's a musician's heaven... I've never
felt so much creativity in my life.'
SHERRI SMITH OF COUNTRY CONNECTION
The Smiths have been performing as a country
music duo for seven years. Sherri sings and husband
Terry plays the guitar. After they moved to Fernandina
Beach a year and a half ago, they quickly became
immersed in the local music scene, often playing at The
Florida House Inn. But last summer, when Sherri
Smith was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, she was laid
up in bed for weeks and to pass the time she started
putting Country Connection music on the Internet.
"I really spent six weeks in bed ... I was trying to get
better and looking for stuff to do," she recalled. So she
started putting their work online at websites like
starnow.com and tag.com, and one day she got an e-
mail from a casting director for "Can You Duet?" He

COUNTRY Continued from 1A
said he liked their music, and
wanted to know if they would be
interested in sending in a video
performance for the very first
round of auditions.
It was that vote of confidence
from one of the casting directors
that motivated the two to go ahead
and submit a videotaped per-
formance. Sherri Smith said they'd
heard of the upcoming show and
the auditions but hadn't seriously
considered entering.
"We couldn't find anybody with
a video camera," she laughed. "So
we just forgot about it."
But after receiving the e-mail,
they met a photographer, Ch6
Normandin, who became a fast
friend and was able to connect
them with a videographer who
taped them performing their song
"Anything Goes." After submit-
ting the tape, they heard from the
same casting director.
"He really liked our video
and wanted us to come to
Nashville," she said. So after
raising money for the trip, the
Smiths and Normandin went
to Nashville - the Smiths audi-
tioned for the reality show,
Normandin photographed the
entire trip, and all three had a blast
seeing the legendary sights of
Nashville.
They arrived at the building
where auditions were being held
about 4 a.m. By 6:30 a.m., thou-
sands of other reality TV hopefuls
had joined them.
"It was very, very cold ... and

A resident of the home had a
prescription for the narcotic, said
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves, but it is unclear how
the baby ingested the drug.
Seagraves said he was told
Edwards had moved to Brantley
County, Ga., after her daughter's
death, but the address she gave to
the arresting officer was 15841
CR 108 in Hilliard.
Edwards was being held

ting funding, but until the council
was created, "there was no way to
make a decision on how the
money was spent."
The Arts Council's goals are
to pursue grant opportunities,
improve arts awareness and work
with the Parks & Recreation
Advisory Committee to enhance
the use and enjoyment of culture
and the arts for the citizens of
Fernandina Beach.
"Even if it's just a beginning, we
need a voice on behalf of the arts,"
said Goldman.



DRUG Continued from 1A

membership fee and no restric-

members may use the card any

every kind of duo you could imag-
ine ... and it was great, because
everyone was getting out their
guitars and playing."
When their turn came, they
auditioned in front of three judges,
performing part of the same song
they performed for the video,
"Anything Goes." Then it was over,
and the waiting began.
The Smiths are still waiting to
hear whether they've advanced to
the next round of auditions - if
they have, they will appear on the
television show. But whether they
do or not, the two and their friend
Normandin had a good time in
Nashville visiting famous sites like
Fiddle & Steel, Legends and the
Opryland Hotel.
Just being in Nashville was
inspiring, Sherri Smith said.
"It's a musician's heaven,
there's so much talent here," she
said. "I've never felt so much cre-
ativity in my life ... to think people
like Johnny Cash started out as
nobodies walking the streets of
Nashville."
The Smiths, with the help of
Normandin, have started a web-
site, ameliaislandalbum.com, to
feature their music and the music
of other local artists. Sherri Smith
said she's now a firm believer in
the power of the Internet.
"That's the way to go now, the
Internet and networking," she
said. "... People do search the
Internet, and they do look for tal-
ent."

Country

Connection

duo to band
SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Sherri and Terry Smith have
been a country music duo for
seven years, but now they're
adding three more musicians
and becoming the Country
Connection Band.
Terry Smith said the band
will perform country music at
the Palace Saloon on Centre
Street from 7-10 p.m. the last
Wednesday of each month start-
ing March 26.
Local musicians Ray Owens,
Bruce Hamilton and Hal
Schwartz have joined the Smiths
to form the band - Owens sings
and writes songs, Hamilton sings
and Schwartz is a drummer.
"To my knowledge, there's
not really that many country
bands in Fernandina," Sherri
Smith said. "... This will give us
all a way to really showcase our
original songwriting."
The band will perform covers
and original songs, and they
hope to focus on songs that
make people want to dance.
They don't want a monopoly
on country music in Fernandina
Beach, though, or on music in
general. The Smiths invite local
artists to link to their website,
ameliaislandalbum.com.
"We want to promote the
island, promote the people who
are musicians here," she said.
"There's a lot of talent."
"Maybe it can become a little
Nashville," said Terry Smith.
Sherri Smith said the per-
formances will be free.

Schools honor top volunteers


GLENDA S. JENKINS
News Leader
The Nassau County School
District has recognized three
outstanding school volunteers, one
of whom has received state hon-
ors.
The Florida Association of
Partners in Education has named
Roberta Healey of Fernandina
Beach a Region II Adult Volunteer
of the Year. Healey learned about
the state award when the school
board presented Outstanding
School Volunteer awards to her,
Jean Ann Loyd and Rachael
Sparkman.
In addition to service at Emma
Love Hardee and Yulee Elementary
schools, Healey has given about
672 volunteer hours at Atlantic
Elementary during the last year
and a half.
A school volunteer for three
years, Healey initiated a reader's
theater at Atlantic. She organizes
and presents the theater to help
students develop reading fluency,
vocabulary and comprehension.
"She does it with grace," volun-
teer coordinator Linda Morris said.
"The state recognized what a gem
we have."
She will receive her regional
award during the Florida
Association of Partners in
Education conference in April. The
association presents the annual
awards to volunteers "who have
shown outstanding dedication and
commitment to quality education
in Florida."

Road to the future



begins with roads


The road to the future of
Nassau County begins
in a lot of ways with, of
all things, our roads.
Ironically, there is no
growth-related area being
ignored and neglected more
than this. Local officials contin-
ue to approve new subdivisions,
mega-stores and strip malls
without allocating room for
additional traffic on already con-
gested roads.
The answer may not be a
gargantuan red light such as a
moratorium on building, but
something must be done. And
quickly. To this end, a public
forum on the topic of our roads
will be held at 6:30 p.m. today,
with an all-star panel of speak-
ers. The event will be held at
the Nassau County Council on
Aging building at 1367 S. 18th
St. (across from Baptist Medical
Center Nassau).
The speakers will include
James Bennett of the Florida
Department of Transportation;
Douglas Seaman, county engi-
neer; Walter Fufidio, county
growth management director;
and Marshall McCrary, repre-
senting the city of Fernandina
Beach.
Bennett will address the
state's rules for roadways and
the FDOT's responsibility in
overseeing them. He will also
enunciate how the state and the
county collaborate in determin-
ing the traffic flow that roads
can handle.
This will be a critical compo-
nent of the forum. The county
has approved numerous new
projects that will put additional
stress on already-stressed roads
here. Bennett will discuss how
the state factors into the
approval process.
Seaman will talk about the
county's rules for roads - and
what the alternatives are to
roads that are considered over-
crowded.
Fufidio will address the
impact of new residential and
commercial growth on roads
such as AlA that are already
considered over-capacity.


McCrary
will speak
on the
method in
which the
city adapts
projects to
- �^ comply with
county ordi-
Snances.
Steve The pub-
Nicklas lic can ask
questions of
"' the panel of
STEVE'S experts. The
MARKET centerpiece
of the meet-
PLACE ing is a
healthy dis-
cussion. The meeting is being
sponsored by the East Nassau
Homeowners' Council as well as
the Amelia Island Association,
or AIA, a non-political citizens'
group that calls attention to
important topics and promotes
understanding.
Both groups hope to illumi-
nate the public on interactions
between the state and local
boards when it comes to roads -
and how to straighten out what
is becoming a tangled mess.
There has been much angst and
frustration over the ever-crowd-
ed roadways here (especially
the main corridor of A1A) and
how to correct the situation.
The panel will provide maps
of county roads along with an
outline of A1A traffic patterns.
Also, a spreadsheet on county
traffic numbers will be circulat-
ed in what is to be a transparent
look at the facts.
The growth forecasts for
Nassau County in light of traffic
implications and roads will also
be discussed.
In the future, the topic of
roads should continue to be a
political hot potato - within a
bountiful garden of important
local issues. And forums such
as these can help to provide a
harvest of understanding.

advisor who lives on Amelia
Island. He can be reached at

Coffee lover loves job

"I love, eat, breathe and sleep
coffee! I've been drinking coffee
since the age of two!" says Bianca
Nicole Martinez while preparing
a latt6 at Montego Bay Coffee in
Yulee.
The perky 17-year-old is being
trained as a barista, or "one who
has attained some level of expert-
ise in the preparation of espresso-
based coffee drinks."
"I never have a dull shift," said
Martinez. "I am always learning
and having fun."
"When a customer comes in
and says I made a good drink, it's
what I aim for," she added.
Owner Blair Davison is very
proud of his protege.
"Bianca is very interested in
helping people. She has an ability
to relate well with anyone she
meets. Her quick wit, charm and
enthusiasm of life make her truly
unique."
When not serving up coffee,
the West Nassau High School jun-
ior is busy excelling in the ROTC
program, with an eye toward a
military career.
"I plan to go to college and get
high up there in the Air Force,
but I can't do it without money.
My tip jar helps out!"
Martinez shares her Callahan
home with her mother, Estela
Ward, and sister Bridgette. Four-
footed members of the family
include Carlie the dog and cats

Poll: Recession worries are on the rise


UTICA, N.Y. - Recession wor-
ries are on the rise, with 54 percent
of Americans saying they expect a
recession in the next year, up from
48 percent who said the same in
January, a new Reuters/Zogby tele-
phone poll shows.
Majorities of Democrats (68 per-
cent) and independents (52 per-
cent), as well as 41 percent of
Republicans, now say they expect a
recession in the next year.
Even as recession fears grow,
the overall mood of Americans
appears to be on the rise. The
Reuters/Zogby Index, which meas-
ures American confidence, has
bounced back from a low last month
to the highest rating since the base-
line rating for the index was estab-
lished in August. With the exception
of a slight increase in December,
the index had shown declines each
month.


This comes shortly after
President Bush signed legislation
that paves the way for many
Americans to receive rebate checks
as part of a new economic stimulus
package. Americans are divided on
how they plan to spend these
rebates; nearly a third (31 (!:".i<....ii i


say they plan to use the extra
money to pay down debt, while 27
percent say they will save some of
the money and spend the rest.
Sixteen percent plan to spend it all,
but 16 percent say they'll use all
their rebate check to boost their
savings.

VIEWPOINT/NASSAU COUNTY COMMISSIONER BARRY HOLLOWAY



County needs solutions, not just opinions


Vision Nassau
Screening Committee,
I have had the opportu-
nity to listen to and talk with fel-
low citizens across the county
concerning specific issues of
importance to our future. The
one issue that tops the list of
interests and concerns is the
communication between the
Nassau County Board of County


Commissioners (BOCC) and the
citizens of our county.
The screening committee,
along with MGT America, has
hosted two public meetings and
these have proven to be very
successful. Six more meetings
are scheduled beginning in
March and continuing through
May. I urge you to attend and
bring with you your ideas and
possible solutions. In these chal-
lenging times, it is important to
consider the best course of
action to benefit the 67,000 resi-
dents of Nassau County and fis-

to move our county in a positive
direction.
Your BOCC is currently
addressing several ways to pro-
vide the citizens of our county
with current information on our
activities and I would like to pro-
vide for you a brief overview of
those opportunities:
All BOCC agenda items are
posted on the Nassau County
Clerk of Courts website. For citi-
zens who do not have computer
access, they can call the clerk's
office and request a copy of past
BOCC meeting information.
They can also request a copy of
the agenda for an upcoming
meetingss. A DVD disc or a writ-
ten copy can be supplied. There
is a nominal fee for this. For our
citizens that do not have access
to the above, I suggest they sub-
scribe to our local newspaper


outlets; we are required by law to
notify the citizens by that medi-
um.
We are currently working to
have our own BOCC website up
and running. We are also work-
ing on the availability of online
streaming video for public view-
ing of all open BOCC meetings.
This will be a huge step forward
in communicating with our citi-
zens.
Has the BOCC done a poor
job in the past of communicat-
ing? Absolutely! But my hope is
that this issue will be resolved by
being proactive and moving for-
ward to promptly let the citizens
know what is happening in their
county.
Let's talk about the Nassau
Vision 2032. We are required by
state law to address certain
issues that pertain to our county.
Taxpayer dollars, as well as dol-
lars appropriated by the Amelia
Island-Fernandina Beach
Chamber of Commerce and their
members, have been appropriat-
ed to bring this vision forward.
County staff and MGT America,
as well as the appointed mem-
bers of this committee, have
spent countless hours bringing


this vision plan forward, and I
say thank you for all your efforts.
The end result will be the vision,
we the citizens, have worked
together to prepare.
Our county is faced with some
very challenging financial deci-
sions this year. Your input is cru-
cial as we face these important
issues and, again, I encourage
you to be informed, to attend and
to bring your ideas and solutions.
In closing, let me address an
issue I feel is very important. In
my numerous conversations with
fellow citizens, I hear their frus-
tration about issues that are very
important to them. Some do
nothing but complain. They com-
plain in the newspapers, in per-
son, via e-mail, at the grocery
store and the post office. It's OK
to voice an opinion on an issue,
but think about offering up a
viable solution to the problem! In
my experience I have found that
communication is key to solving
problems.
It has been an honor serving
you as your county commission-
er for District 4 and all of Nassau
County and I look forward to our
continued work together to bene-
fit our county.

COMMUNITY THANKS

Community supports museum


The community support for the Amelia Island
Museum of History is constantly amazing. The recent
campaign to replace the deteriorating windows in
the old Nassau County Jail, the home of the museum,
was completely successful. Many thanks to all who
participated.
After myriad construction and permitting delays,
the windows, which we had hoped to have in place
before last hurricane season, are finally being installed.
Completion of the entire window project is expected
by the end of March.
Because of the economic climate and concerns
about funding of our grant from the state of Florida,
the museum has not hesitated to go forward with
our plans for renovation. The Windows into History
project is a prime example of the way our members,
volunteers and other supporters have rallied to try to
complete as much of the renovation of the jail as pos-
sible. Beyond money raised, volunteers have logged
over 2,000 hours in hands-on painting, carpentry, tile
laying, etc.
Additionally, a challenge grant of $25,000 from
Paul and Carol Condit has been received in hopes of
completing the new catering kitchen. The state grant
money is desperately needed beyond these efforts to
install handicapped bathrooms, roof, gutters, etc.
Although we ranked third in the state in our grant

Q UESTION: If power is so
important to teenagers
then it must play a key
role in family dynamics.
How does it work itself
out at home?
DR. DOBSON:
You've asked a very per-
ceptive question. It is a wise parent who
knows intuitively how to transfer power,
or independence, to the next genera-
tion.That task requires a balancing act
between two equally dangerous
extremes. They dare not set their
teenagers free before they are mature
enough to handle the autonomy -- even
though they are screaming for it.
Adolescents still need parental leader-
ship and parents are obligated to provide
it -- that's the law of the land. One of the
characteristics of those who acquire
power too early is a prevailing attitude
of disrespect for authority. It extends to
teachers, ministers, policemen, judges
and even to God Himself. Such an indi-
vidual has never yielded to parental lead-
ership at home.Why should he or she
submit himself to anyone else? For a
rebellious teenager it is only a short step
from there to drug abuse, sexual exper-
imentation, running away, and so on.The
early acquisition of power has claimed
countless young victims by this very
process.
On the other hand, there is an
equally dangerous mistake to be avoid-
ed at the latter end of adolescence.We
must not wait too long to set our young


James
Dobson


adults free. Self-determination is a basic
human right to which every adult is enti-
tled.To withhold that liberty too long is
to incite wars of revolution.
My good friend,jay Kesler, observed
that Mother England made that specif-
ic mistake with her children in the
American colonies.They grew to become
rebellious "teenagers" who demanded
their freedom. Still she refused to release
them and unnecessary bloodshed
ensued. Fortunately, England learned a
valuable lesson from that painful expe-
rience. Some 171 years later, she grant-
ed a peaceful and orderly transfer of
power to another tempestuous offspring
named India. Revolution was averted.
At the risk of being redundant, let me
summarize our goal as parents:first, we
must not transfer power too early, even
if our children take us daily to the bat-
tlefield. Mothers who make that mis-
take are some of the most frustrated
people on the face of the earth. On the
other hand,we must not retain parental
power too long. Control will be torn
from our grasp if we refuse to surrender
it voluntarily.The granting of self-deter-


mination should be matched stride for
stride with the arrival of maturity, cul-
minating with complete release during
early adulthood.
Sounds easy, doesn't it? We all
know better. I consider this orderly trans-
fer of power to be one of the most del-
icate and difficult responsibilities in the
entire realm of parenthood.
QUESTION: Can boys and girls be
taught to treat each other with respect?That
seems like a tough assignment.
DR. DOBSON: They certainly can!
Young people are naturally more sensitive and
empathetic than adults.Their viciousness is a
learned response, resulting from the highly
competitive and hostile world in which they live
-- a world we have allowed to develop.They are
destructive to the weak and lowly because
we adults haven't bothered to teach them to
feel for one another
One of the values children cherish most
is justice.They are uneasy in a world of injus-
tice and abuse.Therefore,when we teach chil-
dren respect for others by insisting on civility
in our classrooms,we're laying a foundation for
human kindness in the world of adulthood to
come. It is a fundamental attitude that should
be taught in every classroom and every home.
QUESTION: What do you think of the
phrase "Children should be seen and not
heard"?
DR. DOBSON:That statement reveals
a profound ignorance of children and their
needs. I can't imagine how any loving adult
could raise a vulnerable little boy or girl by that
philosophy. Children are like clocks, they must
be allowed to run!

mittee is hosting eight public-input meetings. The
meetings are open to any citizen of Nassau County
and every idea will be recorded and considered.
So, what happens next? The steering committee
will take all of the public input and boil it down to a
map for the county commission to consult when
making decisions about expenditures, taxes, build-
ing or any other issue it considers.
How do we make sure the visioning findings
don't collect dust? How do we know if the county
commission is referring to the plan? Or, what if we
thought we wanted one thing, but really wanted
another?
The answer is simple: We watch. We make our-
selves heard when it seems our elected officials are
straying. And we make changes when something we
thought we wanted just doesn't fit five, 10 or 15 years
down the road.
The question now, though, is simple. What do
you want?

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Write a letter
Fernandina Beach City Commissioners on Feb. 19
suggested if residents had an opinion about fresh water
or salt water south of Jasmine, if we wanted the FDOT's
permit to stop saltwater intrusion to be expedited, we
write the St. Johns River Water Management District.
Address Manager Dave Miracle, SJRWMD, 7775
Baymeadows Way, #102, Jacksonville 32256.
Then a two-thirds page "Legal Notice" appeared in
the Feb. 20 News-Leader advising objections to JEA's
plan to withdraw 187 millions gallons of water a day
from our aquifer should be made to SJRWMD, District
Clerk, 4049 Reid Street, Palatka, FL 32177-1429 no
later than 21 days from Feb. 20.
So, write a letter - or two.

Save the Greenway
The Egans Creek Greenway is being destroyed
south of Jasmine Street by an unintended leak from the
saltwater marsh that was created north of Jasmine by
the Florida Department of Transportation. The salt-
water marsh north of Jasmine was created with per-
mission of the St. Johns River Water Management
District (SJRWMD). The leak from the saltwater into the
freshwater of Egans Creek south of Jasmine Street was
caused by a mistake. FDOT mistakenly thought the salt-
water would not leak into the south end of the Greenway.
I understand SJRWMD now needs to give a permit
to FDOTto correct this mistake. However, when FDOT
applied for a permit to stop the leak by using a tempo-
rary gate at Jasmine, it was denied by SJRWMD because
of a fear of flooding in the area.
Our area is currently in a class III drought; only
Atlanta is worse with a class IV. The saltwater damage
to the Greenway has resulted in the unintended death
of about 120 acres of trees that are now a fire hazard.
The fire hazard created by this saltwater leak is greater
than any possible flood hazard, recognizing FDOT
would have the capability to control the water flow
should there be a threat of a flood.
Every day that goes by more unintended damage is
being done to the Greenway, as a result of this accidental
leak. If you had an accidental leak in your roof I am sure
you would not want someone to deny you permission
to stop the leak until you determined how best to repair
the damage. That is the analogy to our situation. I am
requesting SJRWMD permit FDOT to provide a tem-
porary gate at Jasmine Street to stop the continued
leak of damaging saltwater.
On Feb. 19 the Fernandina Beach City Commission
unanimously passed a resolution, following two hours
of public discussion, asking SJRWMD to issue a permit
so that the FDOT could install a temporary floodgate to
stop the leak, while a permanent solution is being
planned and implemented by FDOT
I recognize one person, who has petitioned SJR-
WMD, wants to study and debate whether or not to
repair the damage to the south end of the Greenway.
However, whether to repair the damage, or live with it,
is a separate decision from stopping the leak that is caus-
ing the damage. I am requesting FDOT to stop the
leak now.
Additional letters from concerned citizens would
be helpful.

Years of neglect
I read the comments in "Uninspiring Library," Feb.
20 with some dismay. Where to start? I think the most
important thing to challenge in his commentary is his
assumption that leadership solves everything.
Leadership is essential but it can't buy books, find stor-
age space in a too small building, overcome years of
neglect and manage increasing workloads. Perhaps if
he had read Donna Paz Kaufman's piece on the same
page in the News-Leader, he would understand the
underlying issues facing the Fernandina library today.
Would we criticize a man because his car is rusty if
we knew that he had no money to repair it? Would we
tell him he just needed to do a better job of taking
care of it?
It's hard to dislodge the idea that all government
institutions have the money they need and they just
squander or mismanage it. If you have a library that is
admittedly too small, understaffed and underfunded,
what can you expect? At a certain point, sitting around
the campfire singing "Kumbaya" just doesn't cut it.
There truly is no free lunch. We have the level of
library service we are willing to fund. And if you don't
find this disheartening, I do.

No space for MySpace
Hi, my name is Jean, 23, and I go to the library
about once a day to check my e-mail and go on
MySpace to stay in touch with my friends because I just
moved here. Just recently I went to the library to do just
that and the Internet denied me access to go on
MySpace, so I tried again and again, and it wouldn't
work, and I found out that it was all of the computers,
not just mine. The library made it so no one can go on
MySpace, and I don't think it is fair.
MySpace is a way of keeping in touch with friends
and family for me and a lot of people, not just young peo-
ple, but for every age; my mom even has MySpace. Is
the library trying to keep teens from hanging out in the
library? If so that makes no sense at all. Wouldn't you
rather teens hang out in the library than on the streets!
Most would. And if the library thinks teens cause trou-
ble or are loud, I have to differ, because being some-
one who is here at least once a day for about an hour
I see the people who come here and the adults are the
loudest ones while the teens are quiet on the comput-
ers doing their own thing. Every time I have seen trou-
ble in the library, it had to do with an adult.
And there are worse things that you can see on the
Internet, at the library, than you can see on MySpace.
So I am writing you so that I can get the message out
that this is not fair and things should change.
This may not seem like a big deal to some people
but it does to me a lot, and they are taking rights away
from teens and a lot of people that should not be taken
away. Teens pay taxes for the library too. Thank you for
listening.

Abdicating responsibility
The essence of morality compels me to respond to
Coleman Langshaw's column of Feb. 15 regarding
"Surrender." He apparently is not learned in his history.
In the 1930's Franklin Delano Roosevelt knew that


Hitler and the Nazi Party were gaining control of
Germany. He knew their public avowed purpose was
to dominate Europe and eliminate the Jews. Mein
Kampfwas written. Winston Churchill and he agreed.
It was time for America to assume its world responsi-
bility and nip the cancer in the bud. FDR could not
arouse the American people: 'That is Europe's prob-
lem." 'The Nazis can't be that bad." "They won't attack
us." "Send Chamberlain to talk to Hitler." "He must be
a reasonable man."
Until Pearl Harbor. The result, extermination of mil-
lions of Jews, tens of millions of civilians dead and hun-
dreds of thousands of Americans. A bloodbath.
The parallels to today are striking. Today there are
several fanatic imams and mullahs working together, like
a Hitler. They openly declare to dominate the Middle
East and then the world, Like Hitler. Most Muslims are
not fanatic; they are reasonable, normal people, like
then, many Nazis were not. The fanatics declare that infi-
dels (all others except their fanatic group) must die, like
Nazis did the Jews. They use madrassas and propa-
ganda to brainwash a generation, like Nazis did with
Hitler Youth and Goebbels' propaganda machine. The
result is Republican Guards, suicide bombers, march-
ing cadres and growing like the Nazis filled Panzer
divisions with previously normal German kids.
History teaches that fanatic religious leaders are
more dangerous than extreme ideological or cultural
leaders. The former can gain emotional control of the
masses. Reason and money are irrelevant, witness the
Taliban in Afghanistan.
The parallels continue. Today many Americans say
that it is not our problem: "They won't attack America."
"Let others solve the problem." "All we have to do is talk
to them." "Stay out." Read about Suliman, Tammerlane
and their response to reason.
Vietnam is no parallel. History shows that Asian
cultures except for limited periods (Mao) are steeped
in Buddha, Tao Te Ching, Confucius, and they like
money. Ideology is balanced with reason and econom-

There won't be a Pearl Harbor. The parallel will be
an atomic bomb in America.
There was only one nation in the 1930's, and there
is only one today, that can change the current of histo-
ry before it repeats. America. We abdicated that respon-
sibility before World War II. Those like Mr. Langshaw
are abdicating it today. The result is predicated by his-
tory - a bloodbath and those that abdicate our world
responsibility will be complicit.

Beef recall
Last week's recall of 143 million pounds of beef by
the U.S. Department of Agriculture should provide a
loud and clear wakeup call that federal inspection is not
adequate to ensure a safe meat supply.
This largest meat recall in U.S. history was actual-
ly brought on by an animal rights organization's under-
cover video showing California slaughterhouse work-
ers using kicks, electric shock, high-pressure water
hoses and a forklift to force sick or injured animals onto
the kill floor. USDA regulations prohibit sick animals
from entering the food supply because of the high risk
of contamination by E. coli, salmonella or "mad cow dis-
ease."
About 37 million pounds of the recalled meat went
to school lunch and other federal nutrition programs
since October 2006, and "almost all of it is likely to have
been consumed," according to a USDA official.
Parents must insist that USDA stop using the
National School Lunch Program as a dumping ground
for surplus meat and dairy commodities. The rest of us
must learn to treat all meat, and particularly ground
beef, as a hazardous substance to be consumed at
one's own peril.

A spirit of cooperation helps in the wild, too


t's not always easy to
catch a fish when you are
wading along the shallow
shoreline. Ask any great
blue heron or white egret that
you see. You've got to sit patient-
ly, still as a piece of driftwood,
frozen in silhouette and just wait,
wait, wait. If you've found a good
fishing spot, eventually, if you are
lucky, a fish will swim within
striking range, and with a
quick stabbing motion, dinner is
in the bag.
And, if you are a cormorant or
grebe fishing in the open water,
it takes lots of time and energy to
catch your dinner too. Sure you
can dive to the bottom and chase
fish that you see, but most often
the wary fish swim away faster
than you can nab them. With per-
sistence and skill, eventually
you'll get fed, but it takes a lot of
work.
But what if the sit-and-wait

egrets, team
up with the
diving water
birds and
they all fish
together?
What a great
idea! Like
most great
ideas in
nature, the
wildlife have
already
thought of it.
Next time
you watch a


mixed group of fish-eating birds
plying their skills together, you
might see this phenomenon for
yourself.
In the salt marsh of Simpson's
Creek behind Kayak Amelia one
winter morning I saw hooded
mergansers and snowy egrets
teaming up in this fashion. A
group of about 10 quick-swim-


ming mergansers paddled along
the water's surface, diving one
by one for their prey. When
these ducks approached the
edge of the salt marsh the egrets
noticed and flocked to the shore-
line beside them.
When the ducks dove it star-
tled the fish, and some no doubt
darted towards the shore where
the egrets awaited them. The
quick stabs of the egrets' beaks
probably chased some of the fish
back to the mergansers, which
had another chance to grab them
for themselves.
As I watched that morning
this scenario was repeated time
and time again all around the
edge of the salt-marsh pond, until
the tide got too low for the mer-
gansers to swim. They flew off to
deeper water in the middle of the
channel, replete and resting at
last.
The snowy egrets, also satis-
fied, jostled among the cor-


morants and pelicans for space
on the old pilings to nap off their
lunch.
Normally low tide is when the
snowy egrets seek the last
streams of salt water leaving the
pond, where fish are concentrat-
ed, to get their fill. But not this
day. They had already eaten and
could afford to let one low tide
go by without caring.
For the past couple of
winters I've heard from Marsh
Lakes homeowners Don and Pat
Randa about the similar cases of
cooperative feeding, as it's some-
times called, among the water-
birds that visit their lakeside
backyard.
Sometimes a couple of dozen
cormorants mount what looks to
Don like a "military maneuver"
and together chase fish towards
the shore.
At first sign of this activity, all
the wood storks, egrets and
herons in the area take note and


flock in from all over the lake to
take appropriate positions along
the shoreline ready to catch the
fish herded their way. It sounds
like one of nature's best shows.
I've gone out there to see it for
myself, but natural behaviors like
this have their own timetable
and, sadly, so far this has not
coincided with mine.
But I don't even have to travel
off the island at all to see cooper-
ative feeding in action, albeit on a
smaller scale. Right in my own
backyard retention pond, it's all
there too.
Remember Little Duck, that
lone pied-billed grebe that con-
trols our pond most winters?
Well, this year, at last, Little
Duck has a partner, and the two
usually hang out close together,
taking turns diving for fish. One
day when I was watching this
shy pair with my binoculars,
some movement below the pond-
side wax myrtle shrubs caught


my eye too. Hidden still and
invisible as a stick, was a little
green heron with its beak aimed
at the water's surface. As the
grebes moved along the water at
the pond's edge past the green
heron, quick as a snap, he jabbed
and caught a fish.
In all these cases it's hard to
tell if the bl..,," the diving bird
flushing out the fish, actually
benefits from this exchange.
Some call it commensal feeding,
a one-sided affair. But I think the
diving birds get their own
reward too. Surely those fish that
escape the heron's jab must be
startled into confused retreat,
making them easier to catch by
the diver.
Cooperative feeding, com-
mensal feeding, who cares? All I
know is that it's fun to watch, and
that's good enough for me.

City to expand office space


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader

Although Fernandina Beach
Commissioners approved expan-
sion of a city building Feb. 19, they
had one caveat: to limit architec-
tural fees to 6 percent.
The utility/finance building,
located at Fifth and Lime streets, is
currently 1,550 square feet and will
have an addition of up to 2,000
square feet. According to Finance
Director Patti Clifford, conditions
are noisy and overcrowded in the
building, which contains 15 to 18
people and six offices.
Vice Mayor Joe Gerrity at the
meeting expressed dismay at the
$300,000 budgeted for the expan-
sion, complaining that back in June
some cheaper alternatives were
presented.
"This isn't what was brought to
us initially," he said. "It seems like
every time we do a design/build
the cost is astronomical."
City Manager Michael
Czymbor explained that the city
was not doing a design/build, but
rather hiring local bidders based on
the recommendation of a panel.
Panel members are City Engineer
Ed Crews, purchasing agent Rindi
Benton and finance representative
Elisha Mock.
Clifford noted that $200,000 of
the price was coming from waste-
water bonds from utility billing.
The remainder will come from the
general fund. She also pointed out
that a special needs study by John

City commissioners have approved more than doubling the size of the utility/finance building
at Fifth and Lime streets.


Cotner Architects found 2,000 addi-
tional square feet was needed to
house the two departments.
"It's almost like making a fed-
eral project out of building an out-
house," Gerrity said. "The money
would be better spent planning out
what we're going to do in the next
20 years."
Local resident Lynn Williams


suggested the commission cap
architectural fees at 6 percent, and
if the most qualified bidder refused,
they could try "the next guy down."
City Attorney Tammi Bach said
commissioners could direct city
staff not to exceed a certain price
at a specific stage of the project.
"This is a small project," said
Sapp. "This is why we hired a city


engineer. Let's try 6 percent."
Czymbor said later in an e-mail:
"The professional architect who
will be retained will be making a
recommendation on the proposed
size of the expansion based upon
current and future needs, as well as
addressing employee safety and
welfare issues."

Threat leads to



student's arrest


AMANDA BISHOP
Community Newspapers

A West Nassau High School stu-
dent was arrested Thursday
evening after posting a threat online
to bring a gun to school Friday.
Deputies from the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office visited the
home of the student, Jason M.
Cunningham, and found a shotgun
in the home. That, mixed with the
threat posted on MySpace, led
deputies to arrest Cunningham,
who has since been released to the
custody of his legal guardians.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves said Monday no ammu-
nition was found inside the home.
Seagraves said Cunningham is on
home suspension by court order
and must stay in his residence,
where he lives with his grandpar-
ents.
Seagraves said Cunningham has
been served expulsion papers by
the Nassau County School Board; a
hearing must be held by school
board members before the expul-
sion will be official.
Sharyl Wood, public information
officer for the Nassau County
School Board, said nearly half of
the school's roughly 1,000 students
missed school Friday.
"They had about 400 absent,"
she said. "A large number out of
the 1,000-plus students that attend


West Nassau chose not to go to
school."
Several more students were
picked up by parents or relatives
throughout the day.
"You can't blame people,
because it seems you hear about
something happening somewhere
at least once a week," Wood said.
"I'm glad to say that, in this case,
nothing happened."
School administrators were told
of the threat by concerned students,
and reported the threat to the sher-
iff's office.
Though Cunningham was
arrested, administrators heightened
security at the school.
"The school decided they'd
rather be safe than sorry," Wood
said.
According to a press release
from the NCSO, "Cunningham post-
ed e-mails on a MySpace web page,
stating that he was going to bring a
gun to school and kill several stu-
dents because of a previous sus-
pension. Jason Cunningham, who
was not in school, was located at
his residence."
He was arrested for written
threats to kill or do bodily injury,
and was booked into the Nassau
County Detention Facility. He was
then remanded into the custody of
his grandparents.

tributed information to this account.


City ponders charter amendments

ANGELA DAUGHTRY --
News Leader .


City Attorney Tammi Bach and
City Clerk Mary Mercer present-
ed several city charter amendment
election options to Fernandina
Beach Commissioners at a spe-
cial workshop Feb. 19. The
options, scheduled for next year's
election, were prepared jointly by
Bach and Mercer.
The city charter was evaluated
by the citizens' Charter Review
Committee over a 10-month peri-
od in 2007.
The committee presented its
recommendations to commis-
sioners in November.
Commissioners in January direct-
ed Bach to prepare charter
amendment options for voters,
who must approve certain
changes before they can be adopt-
ed into the city charter.
Two charter amendment ques-
tions will appear on the April city
election ballot concerning the
duties of the city attorney and the
city clerk, if an ordinance provid-
ing for the ballot language is
approved at a commission meeting
Tuesday.
The Feb. 19 workshop
addressed 40 additional amend-
ments. Bach said that 70 more
amendments can be adopted by
ordinance as they concern only
deletions and wording.


Amendments may be presented to
DOferS ODET Several eleCHOR JearS.


Election options and their esti-
mated costs included:
* Placing the amendments on
the April 2009 city election ballot
- $14,000
* Holding a special election -
$14,000
* Mailing the ballots directly to
voters - $23,088
* Putting the amendments on
the November county ballot -
$8,500
Commissioners agreed that the
amendments should either be
placed on the April 2009 city elec-
tion ballot or mailed to voters.
Commissioner Ron Sapp also sug-
gested that the questions could
be divided and presented to voters
10 at a time, with the 10 most
important first. The amendments
could also be spread out over sev-
eral election years.
Mercer said voters would have
30 days to fill out ballots that are
mailed out. Mailed ballots would
be handled like absentee ballots,
which have labels with a ballot
number and a signature match.
Mercer and Bach also sug-
gested having two town hall meet-
ings before each April election to

Other suggestions were to

amendments; having announce-
ments on the public access chan-

over Eighth Street.
Amendments to the charter
will take effect only after a major-
ity vote approves each issue, and
after the amended charter is filed

News-Leader

A resolution to allow Lane
Development Co. to have water-
front mixed use designation for
some downtown condominiums
was approved unanimously by com-
missioners in spite of the city not
having an emergency mitigation
plan in place.
The Atlanta-based company has
plans to develop the downtown
waterfront area north and west of
Alachua Street.
Commissioner Ron Sapp said at
the Feb. 5 meeting he was in favor
of the Lane project but questioned
the waterfront mixed use designa-
tion, saying he feared it might be in
violation of the city's comprehen-
sive plan.

guidelines," said Sapp.
The city's comprehensive plan
states that properties located with-
in the Coastal High Hazard Area
"shall not increase hurricane evac-
uation times beyond certain thresh-
olds." Since the Lane property is in
such an area, the city and county
must have a formalized mitigation
plan in place.
Lane was able to get the agree-
ment for waterfront mixed use
without hurricane mitigation strate-
gies because, according to City
Planner Kelly Hanlon, the plan is
not required to be in place until
June. That's the date by which the
city and county must make updates
to their mitigation strategies for
the state Department of
Community Affairs.
Community Development
Director Marshall McCrary said


by way of explanation that "the exe-
cution of the developers agreement
achieves compliance." He said
rather than wait for a mitigation
plan to be developed, Lane
Development was going ahead with
the application and site plan review
in good faith - and will have to
agree to whatever mitigation plan
the city and county come up with in
the future.
"We are basically asking this
developer to sign a blank check,"
he said.
"Other jurisdictions have taken
this path as well," added McCrary.
City Attorney Tammi Bach said
it was not unusual to have a devel-
opment agreement in lieu of an
ordinance, and noted that Lane
would " have to live with whatever
we come up with."

Neighborhood Watch


meeting Saturday for


Clinch Drive residents


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Following a series of burgla-
ries in their neighborhood, resi-
dents of Clinch Drive and the sur-
rounding area have decided
they're not going to take crime
near their homes lying down.
With the help of the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office and local
personal security expert Gary
Belson, they've decided to form a
Neighborhood Watch program
and they're inviting other Nassau
County citizens to join them and
form their own programs in their
neighborhoods.
Belson was recruited by
Clinch Drive homeowners,
including Denise Barnard, to give
his safe streets seminar on
Saturday. The event is free of
charge and open to the public.
"Probably about five weeks
ago, we had a lot of cars broken
into on Clinch Drive, and there
have been other things, too,"
Barnard said Friday. "One lady
has her business in her house,
and someone broke into it one
time and tried to break into it
about six more times."
She said doorbells have been
rung by unknown people in the
middle of the night at some
homes and windows have been
broken and property has been
stolen from area homes.
The seminar will focus on
"home security and anti-home
invasion," as well as document
security, personal security, driving
and anti-carjacking and anti-kid-
napping and anti-robbery.
Barnard said the seminar


An attempted home
burglary and nine vehi-
cle burglaries were
reported the same day.



could benefit anyone wanting to
decrease their likelihood of falling
victim to a crime, whether they
choose to start or join a
Neighborhood Watch program
or not.
Barnard is "a native" of the
area, and she said so are many of
her neighbors.
"There are quite a few of us
that were actually raised in this
neighborhood and returned to
this area to raise our families,"
she said. "We never had prob-
lems in this area in the past, you
very seldom heard of anything."
In the past few months, how-
ever, Barnard said the neighbor-
hood has experienced "more than
our share" of crime.
In early January, one attempt-
ed home burglary and nine vehi-
cle burglaries were reported on
the same day. Barnard said resi-
dents are starting to feel like
"prisoners" in their homes, and
they no longer feel comfortable
letting their children play outside.
For more information on the
seminar, which begins at 1 p.m.
and is being held at the Peck
Center at 510 South 10th St., con-
tact Belson at 491-8358 or gbel

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A 23-year-old Maryland man
died Saturday after he reported-
ly lost control of his vehicle on I-
95 just north of the exit to US 17.

to the grass shoulder and became
airborne. The vehicle struck a
sign pole and came to a rest.
Clayton, who was not wearing a
seatbelt, had to be cut out of the
car.
He died at Shands Jacksonville

County firefighter


could be 'all-star'


AMANDA BISHOP
Community Newspapers

One of Nassau County's own
could be the next America's Most
Wanted All-Star -with the help of
your vote.
Online and text-message vot-
ing began last week for selection
of AMW's 2008 All-Star First
Responder. Nassau County Fire-
Rescue Lt. Glenn Harper is one of
21 nominees currently compet-
ing for the top prize, which
includes $10,000 and an all-
expense paid trip for two to the
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-
Star Challenge at Lowe's Motor
Speedway in Charlotte, N.C., May
17.
AMW will accept nominations
until April 1.
Fire Chief Chuck Cooper nom-
inated Harper for his commitment
to his job on Nov. 21, during a
house fire on Fortress Lane in
Hilliard. Harper, Lt. Pat Cauley
and engineer Bill Foures were
battling the fire from inside the
garage when the ceiling col-
lapsed, pinning all three men.
Foures and Harper were both
able to escape, but Cauley was
trapped by debris. Harper stayed
with Cauley, risking his own life
to keep him calm and used a
hydraulic jack and other hand
tools to free Cauley's trapped foot.
Both men suffered first-
degree burns, and Life Flight
transported Cauley to Shands of
Jacksonville.
Harper refused to go to the
hospital and remained among fel-
low firefighters, battling the fire
and watching hot spots for anoth-
er six hours. In January, he was
awarded the Medal of Valor by
NCFR officials.
Cooper felt he deserved the
nomination for AMW's award
I .... ...... he is the way he is."
"He looked at it as another day
at work and something he had to
do," Cooper said. "He became a
firefighter to save a life, to help
someone in need. I'd say he never
expected the life he'd save to be
that of a fellow firefighter."
Harper learned of his nomi-
nation when a representative
from AMW called to confirm his


acceptance of
the nomination.
He accepted,
but is quick to
remind every-
one that it was
all in a regular
day's work, and
Harper he could not
have helped
Cauley without
the aid of his fellow firefighters.
"I'm glad everything worked
out, but I didn't do this by myself,"
Harper said. "We have to remem-
ber that everyone there worked
together to rescue Lt. Cauley and
anyone there would have done
the same thing if they had been in
my shoes. In some degree, I wish
all the hoopla would go away, but
I understand that people want to
thank you for what you do."
Harper was with Station 90 in
November, and is now at Station
20. He resides in Callahan with
his wife, Julie, and their children.
He has been a paid firefighter
since 1992, having joined NCFR
in 1999. Prior to taking the job
on full-time, he was a volunteer in
Bryceville.
"It's a good-paying job," he
said. "It's very fulfilling. I'm not
going to say I help people every
day, but when I do, it's a very sat-
isfying job."
While Harper is humble about
the nomination, he said he'd love
the chance to attend the race and
cheer on his favorite driver, Tony
Stewart.
Voting will last for eight weeks,
with the top voter for each week
becoming one of eight finalists
for the top prize. Voting starts
over each week, and voters are
allowed to submit one vote per
day, per e-mail address, and one
text message per day, per cell
phone number. Phone carriers
may charge text-messaging fees,
while online voting is free of
charge.
To vote for Harper online, visit
www.amw.com/allstar. Visit the
website to obtain a text messag-
ing code for Harper. One was

time.

Still a suspect,


still no charges


in homicide


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Dusty Lee Bowman, a
Cincinnati man arrested in
August for the sexual assault
of a Fernandina Beach woman, is
still the main suspect in the
April 20 assault that fatally
injured a local activist, Fernandina
Beach Police Chief Jim Hurley
said.
Bowman, 35, still in custody at
the Nassau County Jail on
$500,002 bond, has not been
charged in connection with the
death of Ele Colborn, 76.
"We're working with the FBI,
giving them information for
their professionals to look at,"
Hurley said. "... We just have no
connecting physical evidence at
this time."
Bowman reportedly had been
living in Fernandina Beach when
he allegedly sexually assaulted a
56-year-old woman at her Ocean
Sound residence. He was arrested
June 28 coming out of a St.
Augustine library on a Duval
County warrant for violating pro-
bation for a conviction of domes-
tic battery.
Police believe Bowman was
staying at a 441 South Fletcher
Ave. apartment building close
to the victim's neighborhood
when he assaulted her June 7,
then fled to St. Augustine a day

later.
Following the arrest, Bowman
became the prime suspect in
Colborn's death; police have con-
firmed Colborn was also sexually
assaulted.
Colborn was found uncon-
scious at her Inverness Road
home on April 20 and died four
days later as a result of her
injuries.
The death was ruled a homi-
cide by the Jacksonville Medical
Examiner's Office.
Police were called to her home
at 10:49 a.m. by her husband, Earl
Colborn, who said he found her
on the floor in a bedroom after
returning home from an appoint-
ment that morning.
"It's a challenge to close that
case, but we'll keep investigating
it," Hurley said.
Currently Bowman faces two
charges of sexual battery and a
charge of burglary with assault
or battery.

Shortage

oftitles, not

disciplinary

control, the

problem at

Tennessee
AKnoxville columnist
recently wrote a
piece calling for
University of
Tennessee head football coach
Phil Fulmer to step down, cit-
ing Fulmer's lack of enforce-
ment pertaining to his players'
poor off-the-field conduct.
Fulmer submitted a letter
Friday defending his stance on
discipline and bemoaning what
he called an attack on his
,iI. , INly, (his) sense of fair-
ness, (and) values as a man."
But here's the question:
Would Fulmer's perceived lack
of disciplinary control even be
an issue had the Volunteers
found a way to knock off LSU
for the SEC Championship a
few months ago? Let's face it,
Tennessee's underachieve-
ment on the field - the Vols
haven't won an SEC
Championship since 1998 - is
the real issue people have with
Fulmer. If Tennessee had
defeated the Tigers last
December, Fulmer would like-
ly have been revered this
entire off-season. Instead, he's
a sitting duck for criticism that
probably would have been
deflected by a title ...
Regardless of all the off-the-
field football hoopla,
Tennessee fans have their bas-
ketball team to hang the old
burnt orange hats on. The
Volunteers took over the top
spot in the polls Sunday after
an impressive win over
Memphis and are on a crash-
course with a No. 1 seed in the
NCAA tournament. If that hap-
pens, give me Tennessee to
take the title to the house
because I haven't seen a more
explosive team this season ...
Is it me or does it seem like
G Chris Lofton has been at
Tennessee forever? I could
swear the guy arrived on cam-
pus at about the same time as
Peyton Manning ...
Speaking of Tennessee, the
Vols might be the ones who
either burst the bubble of the
Florida Gators or thrust them
into the NCAATournament,
depending on next Wednes-
day's outcome in Gainesville.
Florida's chances of making
the tournament are iffy at best
because of a weak non-confer-
ence schedule and the lack of
quality wins over opponents
ranked in the RPI Top 50. A
victory over the No. 1 ranked
team in the country next week,
however, and the Gators would
likely be in business. But a
double-digit loss, which most
expect, might just be a dagger
to the heart of Florida's con-
secutive NCAATournament
appearances streak...
Many expect the Miami
Dolphins to select Chris Long,
former University of Virginia
defensive end and son former
NFL great Howie Long, with
the first pick in the upcoming
NFL draft. But don't be sur-
prised if the Dolphins lay an
egg and pass on Long. After
all, this is the same organiza-
tion that not only traded for
Ricky Williams but has seen to
it that he continues to maintain
an NFL job, despite all his doc-
umented bouts with the wacky
tabaccky...
Did you hear where Florida
A&M QB Mike Johnson con-
fessed to making up a story
about being attacked in his
dorm room last Tuesday?
Johnson initially told investiga-
tors that his attackers threw
him onto the bed, robbed him
and wrote the phrase "Mike +
football= death" all around his
room. Word has it that the kid

Fernandina running back inks with The Citadel


BETH JONES
News Leader
Cadet Terrell Dallas.
That's how the Fernandina
Beach High School senior running
back will soon be addressed. He
signed a national letter of intent
Feb. 6 to play football at The
Citadel and will be dressing out
this fall for the NCAA Division I
Bulldogs, who went 7-4 overall and
4-3 in Southern Conference action
last season.
Dallas sat out his junior year
with an ACL tear and was even
sidelined a couple of games this
past fall. But it didn't keep him
from rushing 143 times for 10
touchdowns and helping his team
make the state playoffs for the first
time since 1995.
The Pirates, who went 8-2 in
the regular season, finished as dis-
trict runners-up to Bolles and
earned a state playoff berth, lost in
the first round of the playoffs.
Dallas said he didn't know what
to expect when he visited The
Citadel in Charleston, S.C.
"I was looking for the drill ser-
geant," Dallas said. "But it was
nice."
It was one of two schools Dallas
made official visits to although he

wins by


knockout

BETH JONES
News-Leader
It didn't take long Friday for
Chris Vendola, 37, of Fernandina
Beach to get his sixth pro boxing
victory.
He knocked out Alan "Big
Nasty" Calkins 17 seconds into the
first round of the heavyweight bout
of the Bourbon Street Brawl, a
Florida State Boxing Commission
sanctioned event held at Bourbon
Street Station in Jacksonville.
"It was disappointing because it
was over so quick," Vendola said.
Vendola threw just three punch-
es to garner his sixth win; all six
have been by knockout.
"He supposedly has a lot of
fighting experience," Vendola said.
"It's getting frustrating to me. I
thought we had a decent match
that would go three rounds.
"I'll have to make the jump to
someone with 15-18 fights to see
where I am in this."
iv-. iy... loved it. Don't get
me wrong. I need to get tested a lot
more than I have been."
Vendola said the event drew
more than 800 spectators.
iv-. , y.i.. had a great time,"
he said. "It was considered a club
fight. It was exactly what I expect-
ed for the first fight. It went as well
as planned."
Vendola was pleased with the
the event, the first for his new com-
pany, Main Event Productions.
"There were some decent
fights," he said. "There were quite
a few people from Fernandina. We
had a real nice little setup."
He said two dates have been
tentatively scheduled for May with
the commission.
"Now, I'm going to bump it up a
level and make the show bigger,"
Vendola said.
"I'll have to train a little bit more
because it will be someone with
more experience," he said.
"The fights are ending pretty
quick. We're going to definitely
step up several levels. I want some-
one to make me fight. I want a
brawl."
Longtime friend and fellow
fighter Najee Shaheed was in
Vendola's corner Friday. Both have
trained with Jean LeBrun in
Nassauville.
"Najee is basically on the same
team so far," Vendola said. "He's
going to be fighting from now on.
"It was a great thing to have
him in the corner. He has 30 fights.
He has a lot of experience."


has been heavily recruited all year.
"On the last day, schools were
calling to see what his status was,"
said his father, Tarris. "We had to
make a decision."
'They put the best offer on the
table as far as education and foot-
ball," said his mother, Chavelle.
Dallas graduates from FBHS
June 6 and leaves for Charleston
June 8 to enroll in summer school.
FBHS Coach Ed "Puggy"
Brown said Dallas played a big role
in his team's success in 2007.
"I'm excited for him," Brown
said. "It shows what hard work will
do. Being able to come back the
way he did shows what kind of an
athlete and person he is.
"He's definitely a very talented
guy. He's a hard worker and very
disciplined. He is very goal ori-
ented and self motivated.
"Having to miss a season with
an injury gave him a more pas-
sionate appreciation of playing the
game."
Brown said the Division I-AA
school was a good fit for Dallas.
"He'll have the opportunity to
display his talent against the best
schools out there," he said.

Hornets beat


Gainesville,


Hawthorne
Sophomore pitcher Buck Marell pitched a two-
hitter, striking out nine and walking two to beat defend-
ing District 4-5A champions, Gainesville Hurricanes
8-2 Saturday. Yulee scored its eight runs on nine hits
to beat Gainesville, which was 3-1 at the time.
Offensively, Cory Reynolds led the Hornets with
3 RBIs, including a double, while Sophomore Travis
Higgs and senior Josh Kubala also had extra-base
hits (triple and a double). Senior Marquez Davison
scored three runs and Josh Oliver had three hits for
the team. Other key hitters on the day were freshman
Andrew Minor (one RBI and two runs scored), Josh
McKendree (two hits, one RBI and one run) and
Marell (one RBI).
"We came out slow in the first inning when they
scored two runs, but then we battled back to take
the lead in the sixth and never looked back," said
Will Minor, Yulee High School head baseball coach.
"I am very proud of the way Buck pitched against
some of the better hitters we will face this year. After
he settled down in the second, he started getting
ahead of hitters and gave up no hits after that.
"This was another big win, unexpected win, for
us. Hopefully we will keep getting the same all around
effort and hard work from the players. I think they are
starting to realize that what we are trying to teach
them, doing the little things right, is what is going to
win a lot of games for us."
The second game of the day for Yulee was against
Hawthorne. Yulee pounded Hawthorne 17-3.
McKendree picked up his second win of the sea-
son, striking out nine and giving up just three hits.
Yulee was led offensively by Josh Cassidy (5-for-5,
three RBIs and four runs scored), Marell (2-for-4 with
a homerun and five RBIs), Reynolds (2-for-4) and
Garrett Callis (a double and two RBIs).
Yulee is 5-0 and 2-0 in the district. The Hornets host-
ed Trinity Christian Tuesday. They travel to First
Coast Friday. First pitch is at 6 p.m. They are at St.
Johns Country Day Saturday with first pitch at noon.

Terrell Dallas will be playing football this fall at The Citadel. He signed a national letter of
intent to play at the Division I-AA school earlier this month. He is seated with his mother,

"Today is the culmination of
much hard work by our staff, team
and members of The Citadel fam-
ily. We are excited about the 25


players who will wear the blue and
white this fall," said Kevin Higgins,
head football coach, in a press
release.
'There is no question that our
winning season, new stadium and
improved facilities allowed us to
recruit a higher level athlete. As
always, we looked for captains of
their high school teams as well as
guys that played more than one
sport. This group possesses excel-
lent leadership skills and a collec-
tive desire to win a championship."

and weighs in at 203 pounds, is
also on the Pirate weightlifting
team. He benches 305 pounds.

and people."
He also excels in the classroom.
Dallas boasts a grade point average
of over 3.0, according to Brown.

The Honda Classic has been
part of the PGA Tour since 1972
when it began as the Jackie
Gleason Inverrary Classic. Tom
Weiskopf won the inaugural
event, besting Jack Nicklaus by


one stroke. Nicklaus would get his revenge, winning the event in con-
secutive years, 1977 and 1978. In fact, only three men have won the
event twice in its illustrious history: Nicklaus, Johnny Miller (1980, 1983)
and Mark Calcavecchia (1987, 1998). Honda became the sponsor in
1982 and this will be its 27th season as the sponsor. In last year's tour-
nament, Mark Wilson holed a birdie putt to edge Jose Coceres on the
third playoff hole for his first PGA Tour win.

Play Championship in record 2nd: Stewart Cink
' fashion at The Gallery Golf Purse: $800,000
Club at Dove Mountain. His 3rd: Henrik Stenson
winning score established a Purse: $575,000
new mark for the largest margin of victory in a final, topping
David Toms' 6 & 5 win over Chris DiMarco in 2005. The victory
-was Tiger's 63rd PGA Tour win and it was his third time winning
this tournament after taking the title in 2003 and 2004. This victory moved
him past Arnold Palmer into fourth place on the PGA Tour wins list. He is
now one behind Ben Hogan for a tie for third place.


4 qOne of the first things that we
need to learn when we get
ready to tee off is to have the
proper ball position. More than
half the time, the ball is not
lined up with our body properly,
I resulting in an errant drive. For
every inch that the ball is teed up too far
back in your stance, it puts the flight of the
ball some 15-20 yards off of your intended
line. It is almost a universal rule that the ball
should be close to even with the tip of your
front shoulder. This will allow the clubface to
make a full rotation through the ball, maxi-
mizing your distance, accuracy and consis-
tency. Place the ball in line with your front
heel and make sure that the heels of your
feet are shoulder width apart.


Moanalua High School junior Tadd Fujikawa will play in this week's Honda Classic on a
sponsor's exemption. The PGATour event will be Fujikawa's 11th start since turning pro last
year. He is looking to make his first cut. In May, Fujikawa will play in the Japan Golf Tour ''- S
Organization's Chunichi Crowns for the second straight year. As an amateur last year he missed -
the cut by two. Hawaii's David Ishii won the tournament in 1986. Fujikawa has been nominated for
a Johnnie Walker "Keep Walking" Golf Award. The annual program rewards inspiring performances,
and works in cooperation with the Asian, European and Australasian tours. Fujikawa is nominated, along with
Ireland's Rory Mcllroy, Germany's Martin Kaymer and Argentina's Andres Romero, for Young Player of the Year.
The awards were created more than a decade ago to "recognize great progress achieved on the golf course and
to inspire others to pursue their dreams and goals," in the spirit of Johnnie Walker's "Keep Walking" message.

Feb. 28, 1991 - In the first round of the Doral-Ryder
Open, television cameras caught Paul Azinger's
left foot moving some stones as he stood in a water
hazard on the final hole. Azinger, who didn't know
he violated any rules, was disqualified the next day
when a viewer telephoned PGA Tour headquarters
and told them of Azinger's violation. After looking at
the videotape, tour officials DQed Azinger for sign-
ing an incorrect scorecard after he didn't penalize
himself two strokes for violation of Rule 13-4.

Drum time


The 10th annual Nassau Sport
Fishing Association Drum
Tournament gets under way
March 14 with a mandatory cap-
tain's meeting. The meeting will
be held at Kraft Athletic Club
Ten Acres and begins at 7 p.m.
Hot dogs and cold drinks will be
served before the meeting
begins while fishermen
exchange fish tales from past
drum fishing seasons.
A raffle will also be held for a
"Rod & Reel" combo and cooler.
"We are expecting an even
larger crowd than last year,"
tournament director Don
Whitman said. "Last year we
signed up a record number of
fishermen and also paid out a
record amount of cash."
During the 2007 NSFA Drum
Tournament, a record number of
fishermen competed in the popu-
lar event with 137 paid contest-
ants. Robert Haddock was the
big winner and took home a nice
check for $2,192 for his 88-pound
black drum.
"Actually the two of the
largest drum were weighed in on
the very same day," Whitman
said. "Rick Langford took the
early lead with a big 85-pound
black drum. However, later in
the day, Robert Haddock
weighed in the largest drum of
the event, a huge 88-pound black
drum."
John Jones took third place
honors with a 77-pound black
drum.
Entry fee in this year's tour-
nament is $40 per angler and you
must be paid and signed up at
the captain's meeting. It happens
each year. Fishermen who don't
sign up will often catch the
largest black drum of the tourna-
ment but can't weigh the fish in.
Don't take a chance. You have a
better chance in winning the
NSFA Drum Tournament than
winning the Lotto.
"We also have a tournament
within a tournament," Whitman
said. 'The entry fee for the 'TNT'
is $10 and, for each black drum
that your weigh in, contestants
will receive a ticket that is placed
in ajar. At the awards dinner, one
of the tickets is drawn and the
lucky winner wins the pot. Last
year Chris Parish won $1,210 by
winning the tournament within a
tournament."
The black drum tournament
gets under way immediately fol-
lowing the captain's meeting and


ends April
20 at 6 p.m.
All black
drum must
be weighed
in at Leaders
& Sinkers
bait and
tackle shop,
which is
Terry Lacoss located at
1006 South
..... 14th St.
OUTDOORS The
waters sur-
rounding Amelia Island offer
superb black drum fishing
throughout the year. However,
during late spring drum weigh-
ing from 30-90 pounds are often
caught. This is the spawning sea-
son for black drum, which can
be found schooling and often
announcing their presence by
making deep drumming noises.
Seasoned drum fishermen
believe that when you hear the
drumming sounds from big
black drum, they will rarely bite.
However, when the drumming
stops, get ready for a big fight.
Some of the more productive
fishing waters for black drum at
Nassau Sound include the
Breakers, Bird Island and the
Black Hammock.
Many drum fishermen say
Main Beach offers the best black
drum fishing during the annual
run. Black drum fishermen can
be seen fishing just northeast of
the foot of Atlantic Avenue just a
half mile off from the beach.
Fishermen will find a slight
change in the bottom depth,
where a depression in the bot-
tom often holds tournament win-
ning black drum.
Fishing is often best at night
and just before a full moon and
flood tide. A full moon in March
arrives March 20 with a high tide
arriving at 8:05 p.m. that night.
Perfect conditions for catching
black drum.
The deep waters located both
at the tip of the St. Marys north
and south jetty rocks also hold
their share of big drum. The
deep waters located by the first
range marker at the footsteps of
historical Fort Clinch also har-
bors big drum during the spring
fishing season.
Best baits for black drum
include crab, conch, large
shrimp or a combination of all
three barbed on an 8/0 kahle
hook.


Huge black drum are often
caught at the tip of the St.
Marys south jetty rocks dur-
ing the months of March,
April and May. This big one,
left, weighed over 80 pounds.
Capt. Terry D. Lacoss pre-
pares to release the large
drum for his fishing charter.

and Ronnie Foster are all
smiles over their big catch of
black drum.

Hurricane symposium
The 2008 Marina Hurricane
Preparation Symposium will be
March 4 and 5 in Orlando. A
hands-on look at reducing the
impact of future hurricanes, this
two-day symposium will give par-
ticipants the tools they need to
weather the next hurricane, min-
imize damage and successfully
recover.
If you thought 2007 was a
"quiet" hurricane season, think
again. For the first time since
hurricanes have been recorded,
there were two category five hur-
ricanes that came ashore in the
same season, both in the sparse-
ly populated Yucatan Peninsula.
National Weather Service pre-
dictions say that increased hurri-
cane activity will continue for the
foreseeable future. If you are
responsible for protecting a facili-
ty - a marina, boatyard, yacht
club or harbor - this conference
will show you how. It's a critical


topic for any facility operator in
the hurricane belt from Texas
and the Gulf states all of the way
up the Atlantic Seaboard.
Symposium goals: To help
develop a hurricane plan that
gives your facility the best
chance to survive a storm; learn
preparation techniques from
your peers that have worked well
at other facilities; take a look at
what "storm-hardened" marinas
will look like in the future; learn
what is within your legal rights
for preparing boats for hurri-
canes; discuss techniques that
will get maximum effort from
your staff and boat owners; get
your questions answered and dis-
cuss ideas; see exhibits of the lat-
est in state-of-the-art hurricane
preparation and damage mitiga-
tion products.
The event is sponsored by
Boat Owners Association of The
United States in conjunction with
the Association of Marina Indus-
tries, Marine Industries Associa-
tion of Florida and Marine Indus-
tries Association of South
Florida. The symposium will be
held March 4-5 at the Rosen
Plaza Hotel in Orlando. Visit
www.BoatUS.comto sign up to
register, receive e-mail updates,
reminders, press releases or to
book a room. Or, call Kristin
Loyd at (703) 461-2878, ext. 3561.

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.

'My Old Lady
The powerful impact a
mother can have on the life of
a child is the focus of the
Fernandina Little Theatre pro-
duction, "My Old Lady" by
Israel Horovitz.
The story revolves around
Mathias Gold, who has trav-
eled to Paris to take posses-
sion of an apartment he has
recently inherited from his
deceased father. Much to his
surprise, however, he quickly
discovers that not only is the
apartment occupied by an
elderly woman and her
daughter, but that the mother
legally has the right to remain
in the apartment until her
death - and she fully intends
to do so. The play contains
adult language and themes.
Remaining performances
are Feb. 28 and 29 and
March 1 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets
are $15 and available at FLT,

Helen Litrico


We have lost a great lady.
Helen Gordon Litrico, an integral
part of some of Amelia Island's
most exciting times, died at age
80 on Feb. 16. She was a woman
ahead of her time. She estab-
lished Amelia Now, a popular
quarterly tourist publication that
has been published for more than
35 years. Her son, Charles
Litrico, now carries on the family
tradition.
Helen Litrico was born in
Winston-Salem, N.C., and gradu-
ated magna cum laude from
Duke University. She had quick
success as an advertising execu-
tive working in New York City
and, eventually, Atlanta. It was in
Atlanta that she met and fell in
love with Gino Litrico, a hand-
some Sicilian, who brought her
back to his hometown of Fernan-


-a gra

dina
Beach.
Litrico
brought
her big city
sophisticat-
ed talents
to the
sleepy little
island and
established
herself as a
publisher,
writer and
historian.
The Amelia
Island
Plantation


Co., then in its earliest days,
hired the talented Litrico to do its
marketing. She recognized the
unheralded treasures of the
island and went to work to spread


nd lady le
the word and promote the
island's many attributes.
She promoted the then quiet
island long before it became a
well-known and much sought-
after destination. In 1974, Amelia
Island Explored, a 92-page guide-
book complied by Litrico and
published by the Amelia Island
Plantation, was awarded the
Golden Image trophy and a
Certificate of Merit by the Florida
Public Relations Association. She
was also recognized for a folder
entitled "A Walking and Driving
Tour of Fernandina Beach." A
version of that tour continues to
be featured in Amelia Now. In
addition, she published Recipes
From Amelia Now and The Best of
Amelia Now.
Anyone who has done
research on Amelia Island and


:aves a gre
Fernandina Beach will probably
come across Litrico's finely craft-
ed pieces on the people and
places that are part of the island's
amazing history. Her love of the
island and passion for writing
pushed her to do research long
before there were museum
archives and the Internet.
Litrico's work was an important
contribution to the development
of our island history museum.
The Amelia Island Museum of
History honored Helen Litrico on
June 23, 2004, for her "pioneering
research, preservation efforts
and dedication to disseminating
the rich and unique history of
Amelia Island."
Litrico was actively involved in
the Amelia Island Restoration
Foundation, Duncan Lamont
Clinch Historical Society and


it legacy
Amelia Island Museum of
History. She was instrumental in
the creation of the downtown
Fernandina Beach Historic
District.
She leaves behind many
friends, her husband, Gino
Litrico, her son Charles and her
beloved grandsons Ryan and
Charlie. It is not surprising that
the family has suggested that any
contributions be directed to the
Amelia Island Museum of
History in her name.
Thank you, Helen Gordon
Litrico, for all you have done to
preserve and promote our island.
We will miss you.

please come by just to pet
us! RAIN also takes us and
our puppy friends to River
City PetsMart every third

mation about me inside Best
Friends if Ms. Bucky isn't

Front row at a revolution


As a married Navy couple, Andy
and Cara Curtin had looked for-
ward to an overseas assignment
that they might share. Little did
they realize that their posting to
Tehran in 1977 would give them
front row seats for the Iranian
Revolution.
Their joint presentation, enti-
tled "Persia: Paradise or Paradox?"
is the 10th and final presentation in
the Amelia Island Museum's
Heroes Among Us Luncheon
Program Series. It takes place
March 13 at St. Peter's Episcopal
Church hall.
Andrew Curtin is a native of
Scranton, Pa., and grew up in the
Washington, D.C., area. He gradu-
ated from the U.S. Naval Academy
in 1963 and was designated a Naval
Aviator in July 1966.
During his 20-year naval career,
he flew a variety of rotary wing air-
craft in missions as diverse as com-
bat air support, search and rescue,
and antisubmarine warfare. After
retirement, Andrew Curtin flew the
emergency services helicopters for
TraumaOne at Shands Jacksonville
Hospital.
He is a major in the Civil Air
Patrol and is a member of the
Senior Squadron based at the
Fernandina Beach Municipal
Airport. He has recently ended a
16-year stint as chairman of the
Airport Advisory Commission, and
remains active with the commis-
sion.
Cara Curtin grew up in Virginia,
graduating in 1966 from Old
Dominion College in Norfolk, Va.
She used her B.A. in English while
a copywriter with a Norfolk adver-
tising agency before joining the
U.S. Navy.
As an Unrestricted Line Officer,
she served in a variety of adminis-
trative positions, including public
affairs, personnel, legal hold and
logistics. Her last duty station was
as the Director, Family Service
Center, Naval Submarine Base,
Kings Bay.

recently returned to the U.S. after
flying combat search and rescue
in Vietnam during his tour with

rently assigned to HT-8 (Helicopter

Imperial Iranian Navy about the
mission, purchase and operation
of its helicopter fleet, as well as the
personnel necessary to fly and sup-
