Nassau County Republicans
gathered at Amelia Island
Plantation March 26 for the 18th
annual Lincoln Day Dinner.
The event, sponsored by the
Nassau County Republican
Executive Committee and Nassau
Federated Republican Women, fea-
tured a keynote address by Lt. Gov.
Jeff Kottkamp and drew elected
officials at the local, state and.


national levels.
Kottkamp said he enjoyed being
at the dinner because he had
friends in the Nassau County
Republican Party.
"I love the people here," he said.
"I'm taking some time to tell people
what's going on in Tallahassee, say
hello to some old friends and make
some new friends."
Kottkamp added that local
events like the Lincoln Day Dinner
highlight the importance of grass-
roots initiative to the GOP on the


state and national levels.
"It's critically important
(Republicans) energize," he said.
'These are the people who make it
happen for us. These are the peo-
ple who make the phone calls and
put out signs."
U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw, R-
4th District, agreed. "This the
local Republican Party is what
builds the Republican Party from
the local level all the way to the

Nelson: Shrimpers


may get federal aid


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
According to U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson, local shrimpers who have
recently seen a steep decline in
their livelihood may be able to
declare a "commercial fishing fail-
ure" using the federal Magnuson-
Stevens Act.
Nelson, a Democrat who rep-
resents Florida, spoke to about 50
residents at a town hall meeting
held Monday at the Martin Luther
King Center in Fernandina Beach.
Residents brought up several
national as well as local issues.
One issue that has been hang-
ing over local heads.in recentyears
is the demise of the commercial
shrimping industry, which was cre-
ated here about 100 years ago.
.Local resident Michael Adams,
a member of the Shrimp Producers
Association, said at the meeting
that local shrimpers "can't afford to
go out and shrimp" because of ris-
ing fuel costs.
Nelson said the federal
Magnuson-Stevens Act may be
used to define whether or not there
is a crisis in local commercial
shrimping. He also noted that,
although he did not know how to
get a disaster declared, funds could
be made available even if the cause
for the disaster is manmade.
Another issue affecting
shrimpers, said Adams, is that "fuel
I 11 i 1 1 I I I I -1 1


docks have been sold to develop-
ers." A third issue is the St. Johns
River Water Management District's
proposal to take water from the St.
Johns for use in central Florida a
move, many say, that will cause an
excess of salinity in the river, which
could result in the destruction of
many species.
Nelson said the water district
has been telling him that the pro-
posal to take water from the St.
Johns River won't have any effect
downstream. Hd also noted that
despite the recent water wars,
"We've been blessed in Florida
because we have a lot of water,"
especially North Florida, which has
the Floridan Aquifer.
Nelson also pointed out that it is
much worse in Tampa, which has
been doing expensive desaliniza-
tion to provide water for citizens.
Another local issue was the con-
gested condition of A1A, the
island's major connection to the
mainland. Many residents have
been concerned that the clogged
corridor is one of only two routes
off the island in the event of a hur-
ricane evacuation,
"We need your hdlp," said one
resident to Nelson, noting that the
county has no funds to widen the
road.
"Of course I'm going to help
you on that," said Nelson. He said

2 candidates seek


election Tuesday


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commission
candidates Eric Childers and Lynn
Williams gave the public a taste of
their political views at a forum
Thursday night at City Hall.
Childers and Williams are seeking
election Tuesday to the seat now
held by Mayor Bill Leeper, who is
not seeking reelection. Susan
Steger is unopposed, in her bid to
succeed Vice Mayor Joe Gerrity,
who also is not seeking reelection.
The event also allotted time for
commissioners Bruce Malcolm
and Ken Walker to talk about their
bid for mayor, which will be decid-
ed by a straw vote.
Sponsored by the local chapter
of AARP, the forum highlighted the
candidates' views on issues that
face the city of Fernandina Beach.
Former AARP president John
Megna moderated the forum, while
members Tom Northey and Tomn
Martin put five questions to the
candidates, who had two minutes to
answer.
Childers said he is running for
office because he loves the com-
munity and will "help make the
coming tough choices (the city)
has to make." Williams said that

although he also sees tough times
ahead, he would "push forward the
possibilities that would make this
city an interesting place to live."
The first question put to the can-
didates was about the priority each
would place on the downtown
water iront.
Childers said the city has been
using the same consultants for
years, and felt it was "time to start
over."
Williams answered that while
the marina is a "wonderful asset,"
he felt the city had "way overspent
on trying to get the marina opera-
tional," He also said the new park
plan would be a good start if the
city could finish up the grant appli-
cation.

What goes well with



wild shrimp? Tennis


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The Shrimp Producers Assoc-
iation, a local group that promotes
the shrimping industry, is a silver
sponsor for this year's Bausch &
Lomb Championships tennis tour-
nament, scheduled Monday
through April 13 at Amelia Island
Plantation.
Executive director Janie
Thomas says the association will
have a booth at the tournament to
sponsor the event and help pro-
mote awareness of the wild-caught
shrimp industry. They will sell
hushpuppies and deep-fried
shrimp that is caught, processed,
prepared and served by local com-
mercial shrimpers.
According to Thomas, the
association was formed in 2003 to
address problems and issues
faced by shrimpers in Florida,
Alabama and Georgia.
One issue shrimpers are fac-
ing, said Thomas, is the price of
diesel fuel. Because shrimp boats
use at least 30 gallons of fuel per
hour, it has become increasingly
difficult for shrimpers to make a
living at their trade. Another issue
is the increase in farm-raised
shrimp being imported to the
United States, cutting into the
wild-caught shrimp market.
Other issues being faced by


SUBMITTED

of the fishing vessel Family Tradition, picks through his cAtch

shrimpers, said Thomas, are the
withdrawal of water from the St.
Johns River and the decreasing
number of shrimp boat docks on
the downtown waterfront. She
noted that the main boat ramp at
the waterfront could be used as a
working shrimp dock that would
attract tourists and keep the indus-
try alive in the downtown.


Thomas said she recently
attended a biodiesel workshop in
Charleston, S.C., sponsored by
Southeast Biodiesel. She noted
that this product, which can
replace regular diesel in boat
engines, is non-hazardous, non-
toxic, reduces harmful emissions

Chest compressions alone, or
Hands-Only Cardiopulmonary
Resuscitation (CPR), can save
lives and can be used to help an
adult who suddenly collapses,
according to a new American
Heart Association scientific state-
ment.
The statement, from the asso-
ciation's Emergency Cardiovas-
cular Care (ECC) committee, is
published in Circulation: Journal
of the American Heart
Association.
Hands-Only CPR is a potential-
ly lifesaving option to be used by
people not trained in conventional
CPR or those who are unsure of
their ability to give the combina-
tion of chest compressions and
mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing
it requires.
"Bystanders who witness the
sudden collapse of an adult
should immediately call 9-1-1 and
start what we call Hands-Only
CPR. This involves providing
high-quality chest compressions
by pushing hard and fast in the
middle of the victim's chest, with-
out stopping until emergency
medical services (EMS) respon-
ders arrive," said Michael Sayre,
M.D., chair of the statement writ-
ing committee and associate pro-
fessor in the Ohio State


Department
of Emergency
Medicine in
Columbus.
About
S310,000 adults
A in the United
States die each year from sudden
cardiac arrest occurring outside
the hospital setting or in the
emergency department. Without
immediate, effective CPR from a
bystander, a person's chance of
surviving sudden cardiac arrest
decreases 7 percent to 10 percent
per minute. Unfortunately, on
average, less than one-third of
out-of-hospital cardiac arrest vic-
tims receive bystander CPR,
which can double or triple a per-
son's chance of surviving cardiac
arrest.
By using Hands-Only CPR,
bystanders can still act to
improve the odds of survival,
whether they are trained in con-
ventional CPR or not, Sayre said.
"Many times people nearby
don't help because they're afraid
that they will hurt the victim and
aren't confident in what they're
doing," he said. "We want people
to know that they can help many
victims, just by calling 9-1-1 and
doing chest compressions. Don't
be afraid to try it. We are sure
many lives will be saved if the


public does Hands-Only CPR for
adult victims of sudden cardiac
arrest."
The new recommendation for
Hands-Only CPR for adults who
suddenly collapse is an update to
the 2005 American Heart
Association Guidelines for CPR
and ECC, which previously rec-
ommended that lay rescuers use
compression-only CPR only if
they were unable or unwilling to
provide rescue breaths. The
update puts Hands-Only CPR on
par with conventional CPR when
used for an adult who has sud-
denly collapsed. This change was
supported by evidence published
from three separate large studies
in 2007, each describing the out-
comes of hundreds of instances
of bystanders performing CPR on
cardiac arrest victims. None of
those studies demonstrated a
negative impact on survival when
ventilations were omitted from
the bystanders' actions. Hands-
Only CPR is easier to remember
and results in delivery of a
greater number of chest com-
pressions, with fewer interrup-
tions, until more advanced care
arrives on the scene.
Conventional CPR is still an
important skill to learn, and med-
ical personnel should still per-
form conventional CPR in the
course of their professional

victim would benefit most from
the combination of chest com-
pressions and rescue breaths in
conventional CPR
The public is still encouraged
to obtain conventional CPR train-
ing, where they will learn the
skills needed to perform Hands-
Only CPR, as well as the addition-
al skills needed to care for a wide
range of cardiovascular- and res-
piratory-related medical emer-
gencies, especially for infants and
children.
The new statement is intend-
ed to increase how often
bystander CPR is performed. It
emphasizes the importance of
"high-quality" chest compres-
sions deep compressions that
allow for full chest recoil, at a rate
of about 100 per minute -with
minimal interruptions.

WEDNESDAY, APRM 2, 2008 NEWS News-Leader


Charter changes
Mayor Bill Leeper explained at a city election forum Thursday
that there will be two important items for consideration on the
Tuesday ballot concerning changes to the city charter.
A committee that reviewed the city charter over 10 months last
year came up with many changes to the document, some of
which must be approved by voters to be allowed into the charter,
Leeper explained that voters will decide first whether the city
attorney and city clerk should have the power to hire and fire their
own staff. Currently the city manager is responsible for their
employees. City Attorney Tammi Bach has one employee and City
Clerk Mary Mercer has six.
"I believe this is very important and needs to be passed," said
Leeper,
Commissioner Ron Sapp said the changes would "promote the
whole idea of checks and balances," and called it an "excellent
concept that would help (city government) work a lot better."


CITY Continued fi-om 1A
foot slips for the marina were too
small, and that the city should be
concerned about the silting rate of
the marina, which would likely
have to be dredged again before
the new slips are put in.
In answer to whether the Isle
of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival
was a liability or an asset, Williams
called it "one of the great assets of
the city," but said it needs more
control and direction. He also said
that the city might consider charg-
ing admission to the festival, as
other cities have done, as an alter-
native way to raise money after
recent tax cuts.
Childers said a study done in
2004 showed that the Shrimp
Festival brought $14 million into
the community, and added that
the festival "puts the city in favor-
able light to visitors."
Childers also noted that 50
non-profit organizations partner
with the event, and that parking
fees alone raise $200,000. The fes-
tival has been free, he said, for
100,000 visitors every year, and
he said it should probably should
remain that way.
Another question was what the
city commission might do to
improve the business climate in
the city. Childers said downtown
merchants need greater freedom,
and added that the city should
consider giving them more tax
relief. He also said the bed and
breakfast inns could give guests a
temporary pass to use city facili-
ties like the tennis courts and
skate park.
Williams pointed out that city
staff is "not as responsive or help-
ful as they might be to business
people." He also said the city
should partner more with busi-
nesses and perhaps lower fuel
costs for shrimpers and others
who use the marina. "We can do
more for the people," he added.

has become "a little frightening,"
and that the city should take steps
to make it more user friendly.
Childers said he was troubled that
the Florida Department of
Transportation "may have dis-
turbed the dump at Hickory
Street," which was recently found
to have potential contaminants.
He also suggested the island
should be a stand-alone mitiga-
tion district, because filling in wet-
lands 30 miles away to fulfill mit-
igation laws is "unacceptable."
The final question asked the
candidates what they believed was
working or not working in city
government. Childers said the city
has a great staff, but "people
should be encouraged to improve
their homes" and get more per-
sonally involved in the permitting
process.
Williams said city purchasing
procedures "are out of the horse
and cart days." He noted that the
city has spent $170,000 for a
marina welcome center design
that was never used. He also point-
ed out that city government
should take advantage of talented
people already living in the city
who are willing to donate their
services.
After the Q&A session was
over, Commissioner Bruce
Malcolm gave a brief speech on
his qualifications for the mayor's
seat. He noted that he has been
involved in public service for
many years. "To be your mayor
would be an enormous honor," he
said. "I'm not running to be some-
body, but to serve my communi-
ty'."
Commissioner Ken Walker,
who is also on the straw ballot for
mayor, was unable to attend the
forum.

NELSON ontinued from IA
an appropriations request has
already been filed on the matter.
One national issue brought up
that's had a local impact was the
country's economic condition, and
how to regulate it while still allow-
ing a free marketplace.
Nelson said a plan to overhaul
the country's financial regulatory
system was being unveiled by U.S.
Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson.
Nelson said, however, that he ques-
tioned how much new regulation
would actually get passed.
He also pointed out that lie had
voted for the economic stimulus
package, but felt the money would
have been better spent investing in
infrastructure "because it produces
jobs."
"The downturn is probably go-
ing to go on for a while," he added.
Another resident asked about
Nelson's proposal to eliminate the
electoral college in presidential elec-
tions, which would require an
amendment to the U.S. Cofistitution.
"I along with Carl Levin (D-
Mich.) have a bill that says, 'Iet's let
the popular vote decide who is
going to win. Let's just make it sim-
ple.'"
Nelson added that the plan also
involved grouping the states into
six regions. States would draw a
number from one to six so each
region would have a combination
of big and little states, which is
"more representative of the country
at large." Every year the states
would rotate to the next spot, he
said. "That's just one suggestion to
bring order out of chaos."
"Let the total popular vote decide
by June who the nominee is going
to be," he said. "You wouldn't have
all this nonsense."
Other issues brought up were
the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay,
the state of the Veterans
Administration and lackluster reg-
ulation of drugs manufactured out-
side the United States.

MAGNET HOSPITAL


o( )Y MALOY/'NEWS. LEADER
Jim Mayo, Baptist Medical Center Nassau administrator,
presents the hospital's Magnet award to Barbara Gingher,
assistant administrator/chief nurse. Baptist Medical Center
Nassau celebrated its recognition as a Magnet Hospital and
Health System with employees March 25. Magnet status is
considered the "gold standard" for nursing and critical care
and was awarded after three years of extensive documenta-
tion and evaluation by the American Nurses Credentialing
Center, a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association.


State's p
I university ofl 'loida
GAIN E'SVILLE-The bursting
of Florida's housing bubble and
overall economy has also let the air
ou( of tlhe state's famed population
growth, which has shrunk tol its
lowest levels in three decades,
according to ihe latest projections
from the University of Florida.
"A tremendous slowdown is
forecast over the next few years
compared to what we've experi-
enced during the last five years,"
said Stan Smith, director of UF's
Bureau of Economic and Business
Research. "The state has not expe-
rienced a decline of this magnitude
since the mid-'70s, when we were in
a national recession."
The Sunshine State is expected
to add an average of only about
209,000 residents a year between
2007 and 2010, compared with annu-
al increases of about 418,000 people
between 2002 and 2006, he said.
Although Florida remains a
major destination for retirees, far
more young and middle-aged peo-
ple move into the state to find work
than their older counterparts arrive
to retire, Smith said. But declining
job opportunities have stanched the
influx of younger people, he said.
"The vast majority olFlorida's
population growth is due to migra-


opulatior

tion, and (luring a recession the rate
of job crealtio slows down iln
Florida," lic said.
'The biggest goupll) moving tio
the state during the last lour or five
decades has 'been those in their 20s
and 30s, with Ilthose 65 and older
accounting lor only about IF) per-
cen(t ol in-migration, Smith said. lult
younger people iin their 20s and 30s
also make up the biggest share of
those leaving the state, which is why
Florida became the nation's oldest
state after World War II, he said.
Robust real estate markets and
burgeoning construction fueled
Florida's growth from 2002 to 2006,
just as it did during the boom years
of 1971 to 1974, Smith said. In turn,
the housing market's decline dra-
matically curbed population growth
after 2006, just as a national reces-
sion in the '70s limited expansion
between 1974 and 1977, he said.
Another reason growth typical-
ly slows during a recession in addi-
tion to the availability of fewer jobs
is that people have difficulty sell-
ing their houses, which delays their
move. he said.
"We've certainly seen a slow-
down ill economic growth national-
ly, and it's even possible we may be
in a recession right now, although
we won't know i[or sure until later
this year," he said.


i growth

Projections call for Florida's pop-
iilalion to return to more normal
growth levels of about 317,000 a
year between 2010 and 2020, simi-
lar to the 1980s and 1990s, Smith
said. Although there also was a
slowdown in growth during reces-
sions in the 1980s and 1990s, it was
nowhere near the steep decline of
the 1970s or that which is taking
place now, he said.
"It's really sort of a boom-and-
bust pattern that we have seen in
Florida," Smith said. "The years
between 2002 and 2006 were the
biggqstin terms of absolute increas-
es since the early '70s, and then just
as weexperienced in the '70s we
are going from a period of high- to
low-growth numbers."

slows

the fastest in percentage terms
between 2007 and 2010, Iflaaye'tl in
Florida's Big Bend, is an alnomnaly
because it owes its tlop) spot to prison
construction, Smith said. It is pre-
dicted to grow troim 8,215 in 2007 to
9,200 in 2010, he said.
Otherwise, many of the high-
growth counties are the same as in
past years, he said.
Flagler, which was the fastest-
growing county between 2000 and
2007, jumping from 49,832 to an
estimated 93,568, is expected to
continue to expand raidly, to 103,500
by 2010, Smith said. Its coastal loca-
tion, proximity to Jacksonville and
relatively low cost of living, as well
as the presence of the large Palm
Coast development, contribute to
its high ranking, he said.

Support Boys & Girls Club
It all started in 1860, when three women in
Hartford, Conn., decided to take in some "street
urchins" undernourished, dirty-faced young boys
with little more than ragged clothes on their backs,
the hard-luck, forgotten kids of the Industrial
Revolution. They didn't know it then, but these car-
ing ladies' idea took root as Boys' Clubs, which
soon began to sprout throughout New England and
eventually across the nation.
Today, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, including
the Fernandina Beach club, is a network of 4,000
locations around the nation and on U.S. military
bases here and abroad.
As we celebrate National Boys & Girls Club
Week, we pause to thank the many caring people
who make our mission a reality:
The thousands of dedicated club professionals
who devote their lives to guiding our young people
every day;
The countless, generous individuals club board
volunteers and donors who support our work
through their selfless commitment of time, talent
and treasure;
The caring corporations, foundations and gov-
ernment leaders who actively partner with us to
reach un-served communities that need the bene-
fits of a Boys & Girls Club;
And the families and parents who, every day,
entrust to us America's most precious natural
resources: our young people.
We can't wait to begin our second century of
providing hope and opportunity, being the positive
place for some 4.6 million kids in some 4,000 clubs,
and in doing so, changing lives and changing
America.
The Fernandina Beach Boys & Girls Club hopes
you will join us in celebrating National Boys & Girls
Club Week, a week of hope and opportunity for the
entire community. If you have any questions on vis-
iting or making a contribution feel free to contact the
club at 491-9102 and ask for Mr. Green.
Thank you for making it possible.

VIEWPOINT/MIKE BOYLE/AMELIA ISLAND



Tourism vital to Amelia Island


S pring has arrived, signaling the start of the
most important few moniiths in the economic
cycle of Nassau County. From now through
August, thousands of visitors will come to
Amelia Island for spring break, special events, wed-
dings, shopping and time on the beach. And while it
might mean you have to wait a little longer for a seat
at your favorite restaurant, let's not forget how
important tourism is to Amelia Island.
According to Fitch Ratings, a company that
ranks the economic health of city and county gov-
ernments, the Nassau County economy is twice as
dependent on tourism as the average county in
Florida. It notes that "(Nassau County's) economy
derives an above average 11.6 percent of earnings
from leisure and hospitality, relative to 5.8 percent
statewide."
That is easy to understand when you consider
that more than one in every five employees in
Nassau County makes their living in the hospitality
industry. Based on information from the Florida
Agency for Workforce Innovation, that makes
tourism the largest employer in the county.
Tourism is also a vital generator of funds for city
and county government. Last year tourism related
businesses had more than $291 million in taxable
sales, almost 37 percent of the total. That percent-
age is double the 18 percent of taxable sales gener-
ated by tourism statewide. In turn, those sales gen-
erated $17.8 million is sales taxes for Nassau
County and the city of Fernandina Beach. That


S money supported police and fire
i protection and other government
services we residents depend on.
More important, the hospitali-
ty industry does well in economi-
cally tough times. Without the
almost million-dollar increase in
sales tax collected by lodging
establishments, the total amount
of sales tax revenues in 2007
Boyle would have actually declined
from the 2006 totals.
Half of the sales taxes collect-
ed from the tourism industry in Nassau County are
generated by two facilities. The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
* Island and the Amelia Island Plantation. These two
resorts also pay more than $3 million annually in
property taxes, and have a combined annual payroll
of almost $44 million. In fact, the 1,750 people the
two resorts employ represent almost twice the num-
ber of jobs provided by Nassau County's two largest
manufacturing companies, Smurfit-Stone and
Rayonier.
Although some may say tourism jobs are low
paying, it is important to note that the average wage
figures reflect the fact that many of the jobs in
tourism are opportunities for entry-level workers
and individuals who prefer part-time employment,
such as senior citizens and teenagers, and may be
seasonal.
A report by Barrett showed that 21 percent of


tourism workers were teenagers, as compared to 15
percent in overall retail trade and services, and 8
percent in all industries. These jobs provide oppor-
tunities for young workers to earn money for fur-
ther education, as well as gain experience that can
later translate into lucrative management positions.
Tourists support our local events, such as the
Concours d'Elegance, the Chamber Music Festival
and the Shrimp Festival, which might otherwise not
exist here. Several of the finest restaurants in
Florida are on Amelia Island, including one of only
five AAA Five Diamond restaurants in the state.
None of them would be successful without the
influx of tourist dollars.
Finally, we can thank our tourists for enhancing
the quality of life in Nassau County for our perma-
nent residents. The taxes tourists pay help to sup-
port our schools and public services. Lodging taxes
collected from visitors generate more than $150,000
a year to help nourish and keep our beaches clean.
This valuable source of funds is in addition to the
millions already paid by the merchants in property
taxes.
Tourism is a "clean industry," and can promote
itself by word-of-mouth from satisfied travelers. So
as opportunities arise, let's remember to welcome
our visitors, not only as new friends, but as the
"financial partners" they have truly become.
Mike Boyle is chairman of the Amelia Island
Tourist Development Council and a member of the
Nassau County Board of County Commissioners.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Lights out on thearts?
Last week, when Speaker of the House Marco Rubio
announced that whole departments might have to be
eliminated to balance the budget, the Division of
Cultural Affairs became an easy target for the House
aides who are preparing the budget. By simply zeroing
out funding for the division this vital administrative
unit will cease to exist, and our advocacy for arts and
culture will be carried back to the dark ages in the name
of short term and shortsighted expediency.
During the economic downturn of the 2006-7 fiscal
year when other departments were required to reduce
their overall budget by 4 percent, the Division of
Cultural Affairs took a 61 percent cut. But the arts
strengthen our economy. We know that for every dol-
lar the state of Florida invests in the arts we get a $7
return. We know that students who have four years of
art or music education perform 60 percent better in ver-
bal skills and 38 percent better in math skills on their
SAT scores, and become better citizens for the state of
Florida. We know that there are over 150,000 full-time
employees devoted to the arts in the state of Florida.
Why should we forget all that, and pull the plug on
the support group that makes it all possible?
Agreed, times are tough, but let us not sell out our
cultural heritage, and take away the leadership so nec-
essary to keep Florida attractive as the place to live, the
place to visit, the place to invest in.
High-tech industries relocating to Florida are choos-
ing communities where the arts flourish because they
knowithe creative thinking employees they recruit
demnididctifiial ffacilities for themselves and their fam-
ilies.
Nowhere else can you find finer museums, sym-
phonies, education in the arts and dedication to the finer
things in life.
The budget is being drawn up as we speak. We
need to make an outcry.
Thank you for taking time from your busy day to
help avert this disaster and thank you for your advocacy.
Jim Shaw, Chairman
Florida Arts Council
(Editor's note: Jim Shaw is a resident of Amelia
Island.)

Inequality in health care
Last evening at the Peck Center I attended the
showing from a part of the PBS video series, "Unnatural
Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick?" The prime
movers of this event were the Nassau County Health
Department and FCCJ, but other sectors of the Nassau
County community were well represented.
The topic of this video series could be stated as
"Inequities in Health Care." Nassau County shows the

VIEWPOINT/RHEnr HOLDEN-DODGE/NASSAU COUNTY ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL



Animal Care and People Control


begins a new era on on April 15. Nassau
County Commissioners' decision to have
S Sheriff Tommy Seagraves take over does
not turn out to be a bad, and sad, April fool's joke.
Time will tell.
During my five-month tenure as director, the
shelter had the following results:
Intake 730
Adoption 365
Deaths 329
The annualized rate for these results would be:
Intake 1,821
Adoption 876
Deaths 790
The trend represents progress towards saving
animals, and that could not have been accomplished
without the volunteers who devoted themselves to
improving the animals' prospects. The adoption fig-
ures are a testament to people who not only love ani-
mals, but also show up. Some in our county talk the
talk and that's it. The Nassau Humane Society, Stars,
Cats Angels, individual volunteers and employees of
the shelter have led the way and it has been my
honor to be in their midst.
My offer of service to the county was prompted
by a family-ingrained belief that each citizen should
give back to society sometime during one's lifetime.
I understood the budget issues and problems associ-
ated with this department and that the fix would not
be immediate. My hope was the county commission-
ers would use my service as a way-to buy time and
get the fix right.
This is the beginning of the sheriff's tenure and it
will be awhile before results show the success or fail-
ure of his venture. The commissioners underfunded
Animal Control for years and now with tax rollbacks
and mandatory budget cuts these commissioners
throw $410,000 more at the problem, to fund a plan


Holden-Dodge


that is suspect, while disregard-
ing a more conservative budget
presented by county staff.
Without any public discussion of
alternatives, would anyone know
there was another choice other
than the fix that was obviously
in? I worry that once again the
politicians spend tax dollars
unwisely to abdicate responsibili-
ty and get themselves out of the
line of fire with regard to public


ire.
I believe Animal Care and Control is a misnomer. -
God's children have a responsibility to care for ani-
mals. God granted us the ability to think and reason,
along with free will. "Animal Care and People
Control" more accurately describes the issue in
Nassau County. The animals that enter the shelter
environment arrive either because they run loose,
without tags showing a county license or rabies vac-
cination, or they arrive at the shelter because some-
one has decided that the animal ought to be discard-
ed, becoming another victim of our disposable
society. My view is that it is definitely the people that
are out of control.
Money plays a huge role in the county commis-
sion's quest to solve the emotional issue that besets
our county. Money alone will not correct this prob-
lemn. Action must be taken to change what seems to
be a cultural norm. In Nassau County the rules do
not apply, because the normal behavior for the
majority of citizens is to disregard animal control
laws. The Nassau Veterinarian Association insists
that they will solve the licensing failure, but they
treat only a small percentage of the pet population.
Citizens complain that dogs and cats run loose and
then use foul language and abuse the Animal
Control officer who writes the citation when their


animal is the offender.
The most bizarre example of this behavior pat-
tern, during my tenure, is the owner of two pit bulls
that attacked and killed two goats in a neighbor's
yard. The goats were in a pen and the dogs' owner
believes that he should not have to pay a fine, nor
restrain his dogs. The self-centered attittide of the
"nme generation" damages human relations and the
care of animals with disgusting certainty. The citi-
zens of Nassau County ought to be above this type of
behavior. A troubling thought is that talk about val-
ues may be just talk.
Running Animal Care and Control is a "can't win"
proposition. Animals that land at the shelter have
only three options. They can be returned to the
owner, they become property of the county after a
five-day wait and are then adopted or destroyed.
The person charged with running the shelter has
terrible decisions to make and is often criticized by
those who have not and would not set foot into the
shelter. What is good for the many often displeases
the few and this is true for humans and animals
alike. Decisions are made for health and safety con-
cerns and therefore an animal control facility is sim-
ply not a humane society.
If we want better results, something has to
change. The same old routine will lead the county
and the sheriff down the same failed path. A compre-
hensive licensing program, along with an adequate
supply of Animal Control officers in the field, sup-
ported by an appropriate number of shelter person-
nel could lead us to the promised land, which
embraces a comprehensive spay and neuter pro-
gram and is a place where the people really are in
control, because they behave responsibly with com-
passion and respect for their neighbors and animals.
It is about the animals, stupid!
Rhett Holden-Dodge was director of Nassau County
Animal Care and Control from Nott. I to March 31.

nature's beauty indoors


knew right away when I first
entered Liz's house ol Itort
George Island that I had
found a new kindred spirit.
My friend Susan told me I'd like
her. And when I saw her home
and her decorations, I knew she
was right.
Liz, like Susan and me and
most of the rest of my friends,
decorates her house with nature.
There's no need for some of us to
spend lots of money on fine art-
work, when found natural objects
serve this function just as well.
My own house has an antique
bowl my late grandmother paint-
ed filled with giant seedpods
from Zimbabwe mixed with
ornate whelk shells from South
Africa set on top of a mat of cochi-
na shells from the Philippines.
Branches with three-inch-long
dagger-like spikes, bizarre adap-
tations to the dry barren
Botswana deserts, frame my
Botswana basket collection.
Nearby a two-chambered weaver
bird nest that fell on us during a
windy day in Tanzania tops my
bookcase. Small rocks I've col-
lected from the bottom of various
lakes in South America, Africa
and Southeast Asia adorn my
dresser. Local shells and feathers
and shark teeth fill in the blanks.
And, of course, there's always
a vase or handmade centerpiece
in my house with sweet peas and
zinnias, when my garden is
blooming or azaleas, wild flowers

house, it
seems empty
and lifeless.
Pu Just a bit of
fresh green-
Foster-Turley ery adds a
. ... .- vibrancy that
is palpable, at
WILD WAYS least to me.
I've gotten
adept at locating outdoor spots
where I can surreptitiously col-
lect greenery and flowers to
adorn my house until the spring
sweet pea season or the sum-
mer/fall zinnia season takes hold
in my own garden. Everything I
plant in my garden has a use for
flower arrangements, or to attract
and feed the butterflies and birds
that inhabit my yard.
Now I've found Liz, who has a
similar appreciation for nature's
wonders. Her own yard is a treas-
ure trove of natural pine woods
interspersed with hollies and
magnolia with native lyre-leaf
sage and violets adorning the
sunny spots. Her backyard


includes a long boardwalk out
into a salt-marsh creek, which
she admits to swimming in at
high tide as long as she has on
shoes to protect her from the
muddy bottom. All around her
yard are natural driftwood pieces
and birdbaths and bird feeders to
draw in the wintering robins,
summering painted buntings and
all the rest.
But it is in her house that her
flair is most evident she has
done the best job I've seen to
bring the beauty of nature
indoors. The first thing that
caught my attention in her house
was a simple glass crystal plate
filled with colorful butterfly
wings butterflies that reached
the end of their natural life in her
yard, but have now been saved as
a glorious reminder of summer
months gone by and soon to
come again. Surrounding this
dish was a chunk of honeycomb
and a giant brownish feather a
pea hen, it turns out, not sharply
pointed like a hawk feather of
similar size, but rounded and soft
and subdued.
*Throughout her house were
other natural items. A large hand-
made wreath above the stone fire-
place was decorated with shells
and sea stars and other trophies


from the nearby beaches and
marshes. A nearby table held fos-
silized sea shells encrusted with
quartz and other gemstone crys-
tals items she and her husband
found in an old dig mid-state set
beside a smooth well-preserved
horseshoe crab carapace.
I'm sure there were many
other natural trophies all around
us and I'll admire these the next
time I visit. But now the day was
mild and sunny and comparative-
ly bug free. It was time for Susan,
Liz and I to head out and explore
the outside world of marshes and
forests and sunny meadows that
surrounded us.
Now that I've seen Liz's house
I've got new ideas to display my
own natural trophies. And maybe
you've got some ideas of your
own. All it takes is a keen eye for
found natural objects paired with
items already on hand and a bit of
creativity, and these displays can
rival the finest man made art. It's
hard to improve on nature when
it comes to beauty, and that's fine
with me.

Nice weather for


West Nile disease


I University ofFlorida
GAINESVILLEt- Calling it a sil-
ver lining may be a stretch, but the
storm clouds wrought by the dev-
astating 2004 hurricane season did
bring the Sunshine State at least
one ray of relief.
The year before, West Nile virus
unexpectedly struck nearly 3,000
people in Colorado, killing more
than 60. Similar outbreaks seemed
virtually inevitable throughout the
country for the next year espe-
cially in Florida, where the mos-
quito and bird-borne disease
seemed inevitable.
Even after months of prepara-
tion, states such as California,
Arizona and Texas suffered heavy
casualties in 2004. In Florida, how-
ever, four major hurricanes and a
tropical storm had splattered mos-
quito and bird populations across
the state, leaving the virus no means
of reproducing and spreading.
Meteorological challenges con-
tinued to hold the virus at bay for
the next three years another heavy
hurricane season followed by two
years of drought. But this year, the
weather could be "normal," and
University of Florida entomologists
could think of no scarier scenario.
Already this season, high levels
of eastern equine encephalitis virus
have been documented in parts of
Central Florida. These early out-
breaks may not bode well for the
upcoming mosquito season.
"Depending on the summer rain-


fall patterns, conditions illn Florida
could be perfect lor us to finally be
hit by some of the diseases we've
been narrowly ducking the last few
years," said Jonathan lDay, professor
of medical entomology at UF's
Medical Entomology Iaboratory in
Vero Beach, part of UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"We're watching very closely so we
know what to prepare for."
Many in the state may already be
feeling the buzzing pests' bites, but
the information gathered at the
recording stations and by many
other experts across the state allow
an analysis of what the current con-
ditions may mean for July-the bloom
of mosquito season and potentially
the most dangerous time for arbovi-
ral diseases.
Of course, mosquito-borne dis-
eases have probably been a problem
since humans first inhabited the
state of Florida 15,000 years ago.
However, the increasing density of
the human population in Florida
makes the problem far more potent,
Day says.
For example, widespread out-
breaks of St. Iouis encephalitis virus
struck peninsular Florida in 1977,
with 110 human cases. Thirteen
years later, it struck again with 226
cases.
Day points out how both out-
breaks followed strikingly similar
rainfall and drought patterns, pat-
terns that can be tracked and are
predictive of future mosquito-borne
disease outbreaks.

Robber armed with baseball bat


SI IANNON MALCOM
News l.cuacr
Capping offa series of break-ins
the business has endured in the
past month, a man robbed the
Florida Citrus Center with a base-
ball bat Monday morning.
Since Feb. 28, the store, locat-
ed near 1-95 at 462544 SR 200 in
Yulee, has been burglarized four
times- the first time, about $13,000
was reported stolen. About $500
was taken during a break-in report-
ed on March 14, and another $500
was reported stolen after a March
18 burglary.


The store reportedly was bur-
glarized March 28, but nothing
was taken.
Nassau County SheriffTommy
Seagraves said he didn't know how
much money was taken during
Tuesday's robbery.
According to police, the rob-
bery happened about 6:20 a.m. as
an employee prepared to open.
The cashier was counting out
her starting till of money when a
suspect wearing a mask similar
to that worn by the murderer in
the "Scream" films entered the
office, put the employee in a choke-
hold and pushed her onto the floor.


He then pointed a "bat-like" object
in her face and told her not to move
and took an unknown amount of
money and left through the back
door of the building.
The employee was not injured
during the robbery.
Seagraves said detectives are
reviewing the business's surveil-
lance video as part of the investi-
gation.
The bat that was used, and
some of the money, was recovered
in a wooded area behind the store,
Seagraves said.
He. attributes the recent rash
of burglaries to the store's prox-


imity to 1-95 and A1A, and said it
and other businesses in the area
have experienced problems with
break-ins and robberies since he
started his career with the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office.
"It's not new," he said. "It's a
good center point where you have
exit points in four directions, you
have A1A going two ways and 1-95
going two ways ... we've periodi-
cally had problems there over the
years,"
Seagraves said the four bur-
glaries and the robbery Tuesday
are still under investigation.

What you can do to prevent wildfires


Florida is home to millions of
residents who enjoy a warm cli-
mate, lush forests, and beautiful
scenery. Yet few people realize
that these same qualities make for
a severe wildfire condition.
Wildfire season in Florida is
considered to be 12 moflths long.
Fires can occur at any time of the
year in contrast to other states
where wildfire season is usually
in the spring or fall months.
However, most wildfires occur dur-
ing the January-June period when
tropical moisture is cut off to the
state and cold fronts bring dry,
windy conditions. Fire season usu-
ally ends in June when the after-
noon sea breeze brings moist air
and thunderstorms to the state.
Each year thousands of acres
and numerous homes are
destroyed by fires that can erupt at
any time of the year from a variety
of causes, including arson, light-
ning and debris burning. Adding
to the fire hazard is the growing


number of people living in new
communities built in areas that
were once wild land. This growth
places even greater pressure on
the state's wildland firefighters.
As a result of this growth, fire pro-
tection becomes everyone's
responsibility.
Nassau County Fire Rescue
urges you to know that the recent
wildfire season of 2007 should also
serve as a reminder to all of us
that we are not immune to this
type of threat. Drought conditions
are anticipated and our county is
vulnerable until constant rains
eliminate wildfire conditions. Until
then, Nassau County Professional
Firefighters IAFF Local 3101 urges
the citizens in Nassau County to be
extra vigilant about conditions that
ignite or sustain wildfires.
Discard smoking materials cor-
rectly and safely; monitor outdoor
grilling closely; beware of heated
engines (lawnmowers, ATVs and
vehicles) around dry grasses; and

'Simulated attack'


on Amelia Island


The county's North End
Nature Center Marine Park boat
ramp on Amelia Island was sched-
uled to be closed from about 8:30
a.m. to 11:30 a.m. today for a
Homeland Security training exer-
cise.
The Strategic Weapons Facility
Atlantic, King's Bay Naval
Submarine Base, in cooperation
with Nassau County Emergency
Management, was to facilitate a
full-scale exercise involving
numerous federal, state, county


and municipal response agencies
in Florida and Georgia.
The exercise was planned to
simulate a short release of a poten-
tial radiological plume that will
briefly extend over a very small
portion of Nassau County.
A major objective was to exer-
cise the unified operations of mul-
tiple local agencies in their
response actions to a weapons-
related incident.


Mental health court runs smoothly


SI ANNON MALCOM
News cadets i
The Nassau County Mental
Health Court has been running
smoothly albeit without an official
director for about six months
now, and Judge Brian Davis, who
helped spearhead the initiative,
about two years ago, said he is
pleased with the way the new pro-
gram has unfolded.
Davis and Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said last
week they are close to hiring a
director for the program. But even
without that benefit, the Nassau
County Mental Health Court has
expanded its scope to include those
accused of non-violent, third-degree
felonies.
Originally, the court was
planned only for people accused of
non-violent misdemeanors.
"That happened out of a need to
reach more people," Davis said.
"We all realized that we had the
capacity to handle non-violent,
third-degree felonies, it is just a
matter of having the ability to man-
age them and feeling confident in
having the resources to provide
services to them."
The program is a type of
deferred prosecution that allows
approved defendants to receive
assistance in addressing possible
mental health and lifestyle issues
that may have contributed to their
arrest. If they successfully com-
plete the program outlined for
them, the charges against them
will be dropped.
So far, Davis said 12 cases have
been referred to the program and
half those have been accepted.
There currently are six active par-
ticipants in the mental health court.

visors at 261-3696 to put the

Cases gener-
ally are referred
ato the Nassau
County State
Attorney's Office
by defense attor-
neys, judges or
law enforcement
Davis officials. The
prosecutor on the
case has the final
say on whether or not a defendant
can enter the program.
Assistant State Attorney Scott
Padgett said public safety is a pri-
mary concern when deciding
whether to allow an individual into
the program.
"We look at the case very care-
fully and consider if there's a threat
to the public," he said. "... If there's
a bad record, and we think they're
posing a threat, we're not going to
send (the case) to mental health
court."
The program is voluntary, so
the defendant also must agree to
cooperate. And if an Individual vic-
tim is identified in the case, they
may also voice an opinion.
If the victim doesn't want the
defendant to enter the program,
the prosecutor won't sign off on
the deferred prosecution, Padgett
said.
Davis said he has already seen
the program make a difference in
people's lives. As an example, he
offers a woman who entered the
program after being arrested for
uttering a forged instrument.
"She suffers from a mental ill-
ness and has a history of non-vio-
lent criminal justice system involve-
ment, and the (prosecution), the
victim, the court and the mental
health provider agreed on her

appropriate program," Davis said.
"Prosecution was deferred and she
receives weekly treatment and sup-
port through a number of agencies
and ... her progress in treatment
and achieving life goals is being
reviewed weekly by the court."
As a circuit court judge, Davis
presides over the mental health
court proceedings.
Because many defendants who
enter the program may also be fac-
ing problems obtaining, and keep-
ing, employment, a vocational train-
ing program is in the works to
provide an additional resource for
assisting participants.
Davis said mental health court
administrators are working with
the Nassau County Extension
Service to create a landscaping


training program; the county, he
said, has offered $8,000 to buy
shrubs and trees and other equip-
ment to get the program started.
"With that seed money, we are
beginning this vocational training
program through the extension
service, and now we're trying to
locate some space for training and
possibly use some of the funding to
purchase some computer equip-
ment," Davis said.
The judge said he's very pleased
with the way the first six months of
the Nassau County Mental Health
Court have gone.
"I'm enthused, because I know
the need is there," he said. "And
we're going to continue on and do
an even better job."

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A Hilliard woman died
Saturday night after the Jeep she
was driving overturned on Kings
Ferry Road about 10 p.m.
Brenda Lee Johnson, 44, was
pronounced dead at the scene of
the accident, according to Lt. Bill
Leeper of the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Leeper said Johnson was driv-
ing a 1995 four-door Jeep south
on Kings Ferry Road when she
drifted onto the right shoulder of
the road, over steered back to


the left, then crossed over the
road and struck some trees on
the left shoulder.
The Jeep overturned and
Johnson, who was not wearing a
seatbelt according to Leeper, was
thrown from the vehicle.
There were no other vehicles
involved in the accident, Leeper
said, and Johnson did not have
any passengers.
Leeper said investigators are
awaiting the results of toxicology
tests to determine whether alco-
hol or drugs were a factor in the
wreck.

Get e-mail alert



of sex offenders


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Florida residents can now be
alerted via e-mail when a con-
victed sex offender moves into
their neighborhood, thanks to a
new feature unveiled last week
on Florida's Sexual Offender/
Predator Registry website.
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement officials held a press
conference Thursday to
announce that the site now allows
users to sign up to receive e-mail
notifications when a registered
sex offender or predator moves
into their neighborhood or with-
in a radius of any other designat-
ed location.
Citizens also can track a spec-
ified registered offender, track-
ing address changes made by
him or her as they are updated by
the department.


Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
called the feature a "new, sophis-
ticated tracking tool."
"While we are not able to
knock on everyone's front door,
we can deliver information to
everyone's desktop," he said.
The service, developed in
compliance with the federal Adam
Walsh Act, allows users to select
an unlimited number of address-
es or offenders or predators to
track, and they can change their
selections any time. Notifications
are sent within 24 to 48 hours of
an address change.
The website is www.flsexof
fender.net, and it currently con-
tains data on more than 47,000
registered sex offenders and
predators.
The site currently averages
about 500,000 searches each
month, according to the FDLE.

Not guilty


plea in


killing

SHI IANNON MALCOM
News- Leader

Mohamed Salalhudin Alnajjar,
21, pleaded not guilty Thursday
to the March 3 murder of 32-year-
old Yulee man Roderick
Henderson.
Alnajjar has been in custody
at the Nassau County Jail since
his March 4 arrest after he report-
edly confessed to shooting
Henderson. He is being held with-
out bond.
Henderson was found lying in
the road about 9:45 p.m. on
March 3; he was pronounced
dead at the scene, and investiga-
tors began canvassing the
Pinewood Drive neighborhood
questioning possible witnesses.
Nassau
County Sheriff
Tom my
Seagraves said
during that time
detectives were
able to identify
four "persons of
Alnajjar interest."
All four,
including
Alnajjar, were taken into police
custody for questioning. Alnajjar
was arrested and the other three
witnesses to the crime were
released.
One witness who spoke to
police and who reportedly was
with Alnajjar when he allegedly
shot Henderson and then threw
the pistol into a retention pond
near the Nassau Club Apartments
on Nassauville Road, has twice
reported being threatened -once
by an acquaintance of Alnajar's
and once by an acquaintance of
Henderson's. Seagraves said
police are investigating both
reports.
Seagraves has said he believes
Henderson was unarmed when
the shooting occurred. A motive
for the killing is still under inves-
tigation.
Alnajjar is being represented
by Assistant Public Defender
Brian D. Morrissey, head of the
Nassau County Public Defender's
Office. Assistant State Attorney
Stephen V. Bledsoe, head of the
Nassau County State Attorney's
Office, is prosecuting the case
A pretrial hearing is scheduled-
for Alnajjar on April 10.

Tennessee's

fallproves

SECfarfrom

a national

power
A s talented and domi-
nant as the
Tennessee men's
basketball team
appeared in its tear through
the Southeastern Conference
this season, the Volunteers'
performance in a 79-60
blowout loss to Louisville
Thursday substantiates the
notion that the SEC was on a
downswing in 2007-8.
Turns out that the hands-
down best team in the confer-
ence wasn't talented enough
to eclipse the Sweet 16. I'll go
a step further and say that I'm
not sure that the SEC is any-
where close to experiencing
the sustained national success
that many have predicted.
The recent back-to-back
national championships by the
University of Florida have
seemingly produced a knee-
jerk mentality that the SEC is
on the up and up, much like
Florida State's football domi-
nance of the ACC in the 1990s
had everyone insisting that
the conference was on the
verge of catching up with the
big boys. And has any ACC
team not from Tallahassee
played for a football national
championship since the incep-
tion of the BCS?
While I think that
Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida
(as long as Billy Donovan is
around), Arkansas and LSU
will continue to be somewhat
of a factor on the national
scene, with an occasional
uprising by Vanderbilt and
Mississippi State, I just don't
believe the SEC is anywhere
close to being on par with the
power conferences year in and
year out...
An early deadline has pre-
vented me from knowing
which two teams will be play-
ing for the men's NIT basket-
ball championship Thursday
night at New York's Madison
Square Garden. But if the bas-
ketball gods have a sense of
humor, the Gators and Ohio
State are getting ready to bat-
tle it out for a third piece of
hardware in the last 15
months and all bridges in and
around Columbus, Ohio, are
scheduled to be locked down
for the next week or so ...
University of Florida head
football coach Urban Meyer
recently began a speed com-
petition that will pit five stu-
dents from the school's gener-
al student body against a few
of his fastest players. Making
the publicity stunt more inter-
esting, Meyer said that a
scholarship would be awarded
to any of the five who happens
to outrun his players.
Not that he's gonna be able
to keep up with the likes of
Chris Rainey and Deonte
Thompson, but 37-year-old
business student and
Gainesville native Gary
Bryant has placed himself in
the mix after posting a 4.53 in
the 40-yard dash last week.
Here's to Bryant becoming
the Vince Popelli of college
football...
Florida's Percy Harvin is
rumored to possibly miss the
rest of spring practice with a
lingering heel injury. Of
course it's no big deal right
now because coaches know
what Harvin can do and would
be remiss to subject him to
further injury. If that bum heel
lingers into the fall, however,
Florida's chances of reclaim-
ing a conference champi-
onship are decreased expo-
nentially ...
Over in Tallahassee,
Florida State incumbent start-
ing QB Drew Weatherford
might miss the rest of spring
practice with a torn ligament
in his knee. I'm sure that
while FSU fans wish
Weatherford a speedy recov-
ery, they are giddy about the
opportunity to see someone
else behindcenter after endur-
ing back-to-back 7-6 seasons.

Diamond Classic


The Fernandina Beach Pirates
defeated Lee 14-2 on Friday for
their fifth win in a row as they pre-

Head Coach Ken Roland said
the road win gave the Pirates "good
momentum going into the

use this momentum to defend our
tournament championship from
last year."
The Pirates (11-6) play
Poinciana at 7 p.m. today at

The Diamond Classic also features
Orange Park, Fleming Island,
Rickards, Everglades, Coconut
Creek and Baker County and con-

The Pirates had a well-round-
ed offensive attacked paced by
Patrick Garvin and Hunter Daniel
at Lee (3-11). Garvin drove in four
runs with a double and homer,
while Daniel had three runs batted
in.
The Pirates scored five runs
on six hits in the second to take a
6-0 lead, then added five more in
the fifth and three more in the
sixth.
Jarrod Carlton (4-3) picked up

Johnson MVP



for third time


BELI 1 JONES
News Leader
India Johnson is an impact play-
er. Has been for a long time. Just
ask her middle school coach.
"From day one I knew India was
a very special player," said Don
Roberts, Johnson's basketball
coach while at Fernandina Beach
Middle School. 'The first game she
won on a crucial three with time
running out.
"She was always a winner at
FBMS. She changed girls basket-
ball here. We won several county
championships, dominated the
county. The crowning moment was
the girls won the Florida Crown
Conference."
Johnson played her final sea-
son at Fernandina .Beach High
School in 2007-8 and once again
she's rewarded for her success on
the court with the honor of this
year's most valuable player in
Nassau County.
Johnson is a three-time MVP,
she received the honor her fresh-
man season and is repeating this
year as a senior.
Johnson, 17, is a 5-foot-4 point
guard and a four-year starter for
the Pirates. This season, Johnson
averaged 15.3 points, 4.6 rebounds,
2 assists and 4.6 steals per game.
Haley Tan, also a senior and a
member of thi year's gifls all-coun-
ty basketball team, has been a
teammate of Johnson since eighth'
grade.
"She's a terrific leader ori and
off the court," Tan said. "I can't
imagine playing basketball with-
ou)tt her. She's such a great and
dynamic player. It's amazing.
"India is a player you can
depend on to make the shots, get


the assists and help you come out
with a win."
And win the Lady Pirates did.
This season they went 20-8, were
district runners-up to Ribault and
advanced to the state playoffs for
the first time since the mid-1980s.
Johnson and Tan scored 14 points
apiece in the season finale, a
regional quarterfinal game at
Florida High.
"I had my mind set last year I
wanted to go this fa;r," Johnson said.
"We shouldn't have lost in
Tallahassee. We could have beat
Ribault also."'
Johnson scored a season-high
31 points this season, just shy of the
33 points she scored as a career
high while at FBHS. She played in
every game this season, and even
a twisted ankle in the University
Christian game couldn't keep her
on the bench.
"Defensively, India was a big
part of what we did," said Mike
Landtroop, head girls basketball
coach at FBHS. "I have not seen a
girl as fast as India. When deter-
mined to shut someone down,
there was no one better than No. 3
India Johnson.
"When we needed some points
at the end of a game, we had a play
designed for India to take her play-
er one-on-one for the score and/or
foul."
Not only is graduation taking
away a top player, the Lady Pirates
will lose a leader.
"India is a quiet leader," Land-
troop said. "Rather than tell the
other players how to do something,
she would rather show them how
by exi>ample."

Snapper



stocks are



improving

Nassau Sport Fishing Association fish club
members were in for a real treat this
March 26 when Capt. Rick Ryals gave an
informative seminar on red snapper fish-
ing. Ryals sells advertisement for the Florida
Sportsman magazine, but most fishermen know
him as the host for the very popular "Florida
Sportsman" live radio show that is aired Saturday
mornings on WNZS 930 AM sports radio station in
the Jacksonville area.
Ryals also heads up "Hands On" rigging semi-
nars at all of the Florida Sportsman magazine fish-
ing and boating shows.
"We have some of the very
best red snapper fishing in
years," Ryals said. "Just a few
fishing seasons ago Northeast
Florida bottom fishermen were
catching loads of small snap-
per. Now, within the past few
years, we are catching big
reds, which is actually the
results of excellent fish man-
Terry Lacoss agement."
. ... Ryals went on to explain
OUTDOORS that red snapper fishing off
Northeast Florida is filling a
void where fishermen were
once catching good numbers of other species of
bottom game fish. For example, amberjack were
almost depleted by commercial divers during previ-
ous fishing seasons. The stocks of cobia have also
been thinned by both recreational and commercial
fishermen.
Atlantic fishermen can keep two red snapper
per day that must measure at least 20 inches in
length. During previous fishing seasons, most of
the red snapper that deep-sea fishermen were
catching measured just under the legal 20-inch
minimum requirement.
Ryals then explained how to catch those really
big red snapper, which seasoned bottom fishermen
refer to as "mule" snapper.
"First of all, if you are targeting red snapper in
100 feet of water or less, I would recommend using.
20- to 30-pound fishing tackle," Ryals explained.
"Here I would recommend monofilament fishing
lines, simply because the braided fishing lines tend
to rip the hook from the mouth of the snapper. If
we are snapper fishing in water depths over 100
feet, we will switch to the braided fishing lines."
Actually Ryals uses almost the same fishing
tackle that many Northeast Florida live bait trollers
,would use to-catch king mackerel.
You would not believe the difference between
using light tackle and fairly heavy tackle when tar-
geting red snapper," Ryals said. "I will catch far
more red snapper with 20-pound tackle than I will
with 50- to 80-pounr fishing tackle. There is also a
big difference in leaders too. I would strongly rec-


ommend the fluorocarbon leaders over the regular
mono leaders as well. You will get bit a lot more
using a fluorocarbon leader in the 30- to 50-pound
sizes."
One of Ryals' favorite setups for bottom fishing
includes what many deep-sea fishermen refer to as
a' "knocker", rig. The knocker rig begins with.a 50-
poundblack: barrel swivel that.is tied to the termi-
nal 20-pound fishing line.
Next, a five-foot section of fluorocarbon shock
leader is tied to the remaining side of the barrel
swivel. A 4- to 6-ounce egg sinker is then threaded
onto the shock leader and a 7/0 Owner live bait

hook is tied to the tag end of the shock leader.
"With this setup, the egg sinker 'knocks' up
against the live bait and, by hooking the live bait in
the tail, the live bait swims up from the bottom,
away from the sinker and gets eaten," Ryals said.
"If you don't get a snapper bite right away, reel in
the slack fishing line and bring the lie cigar min-
now or saurdine back to the egg sinker and repeat
this deadly technique."
One point that Ryals made very clear is securing
plenty of live baits before you begin your day of red
snapper fishing.
"You can catch grunts and pinfish right off a


dock before your day of red snapper fishing," he
said. "I actually prefer these live baits for red snap-
per, particularly for those really big red snapper
that are hard to catch."
The one thing that really made sense that Ryals
explained to his guests was finding your own snap-
per holes: Many of the offshore fish havens that are
identified on-fishing charts often experience heavy
fishing pressure. By locating small ledges on the
bottom, you will have a much better chance in
catching "mule" size red snapper.

at over 350 nationwide locations,
has launched a campaign to raise
$50,000 in additional funds to
meet increasing demand by
establishing new loaner locations
at marinas, boat ramps,.water-
side resorts, boat clubs, bait
shops, towboats, fire houses and
other public facilities. The life
jackets are typically loaned out
for a day or weekend.
Started in 1997, the program
has loaned out life jackets on
average more than 50,000 times
a year and saved three lives -
as well as given thousands of par-
, ents peace of mind knowing that
their children are wearing a cor-
rectly fitted life jacket.
A tax-deductible donation of
only $10 will buy one vest-style
life jacket and $250 will create a
completely new, fully stocked
loaner site.
The-$50,000 fundraising drive
will also help replenish life jack-
ets at some existing locations.
Funding for the program is also
supported in part by the 650,000
members of BoatU.S.
"When boaters or anglers
bring young guests aboard, they
may not have the right-sized life
jacket or a child may have out-
grown their old jacket, so the
youngster is sometimes put in
one that is too big, or worse,
goes without one," said BoatU.S.
Foundation Program Manager
Ted Sensenbrenner.
"Putting a kid in an ill-fitted
jacket can be dangerous. Once in
the water, small children can eas-
ily slip out of them," he added.
Since many states, as well as a


federal rule, now require life
jackets to be worn by children,
the loaner program has helped
out families caught unaware of
such requirements.

The BoatU.S. Foundation for
Boating Safety and Clean Water
is a national 501(c) (3) nonprofit
education and research organiza-
tion primarily funded by the vol-
untary contributions of BoatU.S
members. The Foundation oper-
ates more than a dozen pro-
grams including the only accred-
ited, free, online general boating
safety course, a low-cost EPIRB
rental program, and the "Help
Stop the Drops" national clean
fueling campaign. It has awarded
hundreds of thousands of dollars
in grants for nonprofit groups for
boating safety and environmental
projects.

Support for clean boat act
A newly introduced Senate
bill, "The Clean Boating Act of
2008" (S. 2766), promises to be a
practical solution to a looming
permit deadline for recreational
boaters, anglers and charter
boats.
Because of a lawsuit targeting
ocean-going commercial vessels
carrying ballast water, the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency is required to implement
an "operational discharge per-
mit" for all vessels in the United
States including recreational
boats by Sept. 30. Without a
change in law, all boaters will
need to obtain this permit, as
early as this summer.
However, with a possible
Senate vote in the next few
months, Boat Owners
Association of The United States
(BoatU.S.) is urging recreational
boaters to quickly contact their
Senate and House legislators to
support The Clean Boating Act
of 2008.
S. 2766 was introduced March
13 by Senate Environment and
Public Works Chairwoman
Barbara Boxer (1)-Calif.) and


Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.). It fol-
lows two bills originally intro-
duced in the spring and fall of
2007 as "The Recreational
Boating Act of 2007" (H.R
2550/S. 2067) by Representatives
Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) and
Candice Miller (R-Mich.) and
Senator Mel Martinez (R-Fla.).
"Sens. Boxer and Nelson's bill
now has the best chance of gain-
ing widespread political support.
As a result, we need every
boater, every angler, and anyone
who uses a boat to contact their
senators and representatives to
ask for their support of this bill,"
said BoatU.S. Vice President of
Government Affairs Margaret
Podlich.
"S. 2766 recognizes the fact
that normal operational dis-
charges from recreational boats,
such as engine cooling water or
deck runoff from rain, should not
be viewed under the Clean Water
Act as being similar to a commer-
cial ship's ballast water," said
Podlich. "This bill does not weak-
en any existing environmental
laws restricting the overboard
discharge of oil, fuel, garbage, or
sewage."
S. 2766 also requires the EPA
and U.S. Coast Guard to investi-
gate the need for potential man-
agement practices for some
recreational boat discharges over
the next three years. Each step
in this development process will
include a public comment period
and be subject to "reasonable
and practical" criterion.
"BoatU.S. has been working
with the National Marine
Manufacturers Association
(NMMA) and other groups to
seek a viable recreational boat-
ing solution to the upcoming
September permit deadline. We
appreciate the leadership shown
by members of Congress who
understand that applying a new
permit to recreational boating
will not accomplish anything tan-
gible and will only create a new
unnecessary bureaucracy,
added Podlich.
To help boaters contact their
federal legislators or learn more
about the issue, visit www.Boat
Blue.org or www.BoatUS.com/

ing advocate for recreational
boaters with over 650,000 mem-

A The "yips" is a golf term that
afflicts many golfers. We have
J seen the "yips" totally crash PGA
professionals like Chip Beck, Ian
Baker-Finch and David Duval, but
it is a very common problem on
the putting green. It occurs when
the golfer has so many failures on certain putts
that it causes a mental breakdown in the sub-
conscious part of our brain. While it is a nice con-
cept to think that the problem will fix itself over
time, it really never goes away. The only way that
you can hope to fix this situation is to change
everything about your putting game. This means
from your stance to the grip, a complete start-
over is in order. Eliminating all the old bad habits
is the key to giving yourself the best chance to
succeed and getting rid of the "yips".

2007-8 ALL-COUNTY GIRLS BASKETBALL


India Johnson


Haley Tan


MVP Continued from 1B

Pirate, she played in the youth
league at Peck Gym. She was just
six years old her first season and
one of few if not the only girl in
the league.
"I was beating up on the guys
all the time," Johnson laughs.
"I was scared, nervous more
than anything," said Deena Raysor,
Johnson's mother. "'That's my baby.
But, she could handle herself and
the boys. They couldn't stick with
her. 'We don't want to guard India.'
That put me at ease."
Johnson is still deciding her
future.
"I want to play basketball, try
out to be a walk-on," she said. "I'll
make sure I make the team."
Johnson makes the grades.
She's an honor student and boasts


Erica' Walters


Jennifer Pelham


Kim Denmark


a 3.5 grade point average. She's
also a member of the National
Honor Society.
"I would prefer an academic
scholarship over an athletic schol-
arship," Raysor said. "She has
enough skill and ball knowledge
the coaches would see that.
Coaches would pick up on that
energy."
Johnson is also the daughter of
the late William Johnson.

The signs of spring are blooming all around


t is spring in our neighborhood; our
alligator is back. I am not sure if it is
the same alligator each spring or a
new big, lone one that has found our
entrance pond the best place to find lady
friends. We are told that when an alligator
is spotted in the pond and reaches a cer-
tain size they are taken some place where
big alligators get to stay. I don't ask ques-
tions, I just want to know that creepy crea-
ture is gone and not lurking.
There are, of course, other signs of
spring. The ones I love. Each year as
spring arrives and the days warm, I am
filled with wonder. It never gets old. The
years have not blunted my sense of awe at
the pure miracle of the season. Gone are
the Northern springs of my past. Those
springs came with a bang and often
overnight.
Southern springs are subtler. Flowers


gently unfold their
bright blossoms. As
if on-a timer, our
azaleas pop open in
a series of colorfulI
treats as other
plants begin to
show their colors.
They wait in line
and take turns
showing off.
Trees begin to

and create carpets of gold and yellow.
Fruit trees bloomed like miniature fire-
works and were a welcome sign of a long
awaited spring. This year's spring will be a
special treat to those who have survived a
long winter of record snowfalls and bone-
chilling cold.
The marsh creatures know it is spring.
Birds of all shapes and colors are madly
darting back and forth looking for housing
and mates. Soon the fat marsh rabbits will
arrive looking for tasty new plants in my
garden.
More and more of my time is spent
tending to the vestiges of last year's gar-
den and checking for survivors. Even the
saddest of plants seems to show some sign
of life. I tend to keep plants too long. Any
sign of life and I am hopeful. Many times a
plant appearing dead or dying comes back
to bloom another day. There is a lesson in


that. Don't pull the trigger too quickly.
So I encourage the survivors and fight
the ever-persistent weeds. My biggest bat-
tle are the ferns from hell. I love my ferns
but they simply will not stay in their desig-
nated spots. They climb trees and spread
almost as you watch them. This year my
oak trees think it is fall and continue to
drop their brittle brown leaves.
It is hard to resist the wonderful array
of colorful flowers and plants that are avail-
able all around us. You cannot go to the
grocery store or anywhere without seeing
plants that say 'Take me home." I do.
The end of the day sitting on the porch
I sometimes feel like my garden is smiling
back at me and thanking me for caring.

I'm Carmelita and when

.that name. My short coat of
fur is a luscious caramel

sweet as the candy too!

and sure am grateful to the
kind folks of R.A.I.N., Res-
cuing Animals In Nassau,
who said outside and home-
lessis no place for a Jim-
dandy kitty like me. So I was
scooped up, tested for FIV/

CP vaccine, wormed, had
Revolution put on for fleas,
my ear mites treated, nails
clipped, I'm telling you, the
kitty-cat works! Then I was
spayed and given a rabies


shot. Now I'm ready to be on
someone's lap forever.
RAIN will also be partici-
pating in "Pets Wear Prada"

be purchased at Best
Friends. If I don't get adopt-
