Katie's Ride marks


4th year Saturday

SUBMITTED
Katie Caples' death at 18
inspired the Katie Ride for
Life.


Like any teenager, Katie
Caples was excited to get her dri-
ver's license. Having that little
card in her wallet meant freedom.
For Chris Klug, it also meant the
difference between life and death.
Klug was one of five people to
receive Katie's organs when she
died following an automobile acci-
dent returning home from a
March of Dimes Walk in 1998,
two years after signing her donor
pledge.
"We had not discussed organ
donation pi lor to going with Katie
for her dri' dr's test," said Katie's
father, Day: .
"She w( at to the counter to


get her license and the clerk
asked her if she wanted to be a
donor. We all discussed it and she
decided to go ahead."
"I think that as we talked about
it, she had the sense that it is an
obligation that we all have to leave
life behind when we move on,"
Caples continued.
"We are given organs that we
will not need once we pass on that
can save another's life or extend
the life of another individual."
David and Susan Caples were
devastated by their daughter's
death at 18, but say knowing that
her organs helped others live took
some of the sting out of her loss.

Critics of new


county building


spark friction


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader


Fallout from a proposal to con-
struct a new $2 million building
caused heated discussion Monday
among four Nassau County
Commissioners.
Commissioner Mike Boyle
sharply criticized Nassau County
Planning and Zoning Board mem-
ber John Stack for remarks quoted
in Friday's News-Leader.
Stack has been a vocal opponent
of the proposed building, which if
approved would house the county
building department's staff and
records.
The building would be paid for
with funds the department collect-
ed through permitting fees. The


proposal goes before the county
commission for final approval
April 28.
Stack told the News-Leader he
had questions about the necessity
of a new building. He also has con-
cerns about the building's location
and the choice to construct it from
steel.
Boyle read quotes from the
News-Leader story into the record.
"I take exception to (Planning and
Zoning Board members) using a
public forum" like the News-Leader
to vent their disagreements, he
said.
"What should I say to that?
Talking to a newspaper is some-
thing you shouldn't do?" Stack said

Other counties in Florida are

become more competitive, Nassau
County Economic Development
Board Executive Director Steve
Rieck told county commissioners
last week.'
"We're all Floridians ... but we
have to compete at the end of the
day to bring these projects to our
county," he said.
Rieck said that in fiscal 2004,
Osceola County spent about $104
per resident on economic develop-
*ment, as opposed to Nassau
County's current figure of $2.93 per


resident.
"That's the
money these
communities are
spending to
attract business-
es from other
parts of the
world," Rieck
Rieck said after the
April 9 meeting.
"Obviously, the
more money you spend, the louder
your voice can be heard. At the end
of the day, this is all about creating
jobs in Nassau County and increas-
ing the tax base."

HOTEL Continued from 1A
in Hartford, Conn., had secured a
loan from Bank of America on
behalf of O&S Development LLC
and Polidori Holdings of
Connecticut Inc. to build the $15
million hotel.
The new Residence Inn would
offer extended-stay lodging
instead of a full-service hotel or
resort, according to GlobeSt.com.
The proposed Marriott
Residence Inn-Amelia Island
would include approximately 500
square feet of meeting space, an
outdoor swimming pool, business
center and fitness room.
The new hotel has been
approved by the city's Technical
Review Committee.
It is located in a C-1 zoning dis-
trict, a commercial district that
allows for hotels without approval

she passed on," said her father.
"From a nine-year-old girl to a 63-
year-old woman with five children.
You would only have to meet one
of them to understand how won-
derful it is to receive a new life."
The Katie Caples Foundation
was created to provide programs
that would help to build character
in young people and provide finan-
cial assistance (via scholarships)
with their education.
"Susan and I wanted to have
something positive come out of
the tragedy of the accident that
Katie had," Caples explained.
The Katie Ride for Life became
an extension of the foundation
when Caples started to follow
up with LifeQuest, the organ
recovery agency in North-
east Florida that assisted with
Katie's organ donation. Caples
crossed paths with potential organ
recipients who were on the wait-
ing list.
"The anxiety I witnessed with
those waiting for transplants was
overwhelming," recalls Caples.
"Each day they faced the ultimate
question of whether they would
survive another day."
"That is when I began to learn
the national numbers about organ
transplants and the shortage of
organs relative to the need."
The first Katie Ride in 2005
had 225 riders. This year 450 rid-
ers are expected and organizers
anticipate exceeding last year's
$105,000 tally.

by the city commission.
The new hotel, first proposed
in 2004, has been discussed by
the city Planning Advisory Board
as part of a "commercial beach
corridor" idea broached by city
planners and private developers.
There are three hotels now on the
Sadler Road approach to th(lie beach
- Amelia Hotel & Suites, Best
Western Inn and Hampton Inn -
and others are planned.
One of those, proposed for the
Hall's Beach Store property, has
been blocked by city regulations
regarding density. The other, pro-
posed on wetlands directly east
of the Cedar River restaurant, was
blocked by concerns about con-
servation. The city has offered
more than half a million dollars
to buy that site from its
Jacksonville owner.

There are currently more
than 98,000 individuals wait-K
ing for transplants in America.
Every 15 minutes someone ts
added to the waiting list and
every 90 minutes someone
dies for lack of an organ. For
more information visit

Funds raised by the Katie Ride
for Life help to underwrite a year-
round education program at the
high school level. The Katie
Foundation partners with
LifeQuest to present "Decision:

sophomores, the program relates
the facts about live and cadaver
donations.
The 100-mile century ride and
the 30- 60- or 100km rides start at
the Atlantic Avenue Recreation

Saturday. A family fun ride takes
place at 9:30 a.m. in Fort Clinch.
Riders may sign up online at

COUNTY Continued from 1A
Tuesday. "My comments were
made in the Planning and Zoning
Board meeting. My real response to
the newspaper was as a taxpayer,
not as a member of the planning
board."
County Attorney David A.
Hallman told commissioners the
Planning and Zoning Board may
have. overstepped its bounds at the
April 1 meeting at which the pro-
posal was passed by a 5-3 vote.
"I think the Planning and Zoning
Board got completely out of line on
this issue," Hallman said. "They
were engaged in a discussion about
what property owners ought to do
with their own property."
Hallman said the Planning and
Zoning Board's job was to approve
or deny proposals based on com-
pliance with local statutes, not
doubts about location or aesthet-
ics.
Commissioner Barry Holloway
agreed. "When we appoint a board,
it's to follow local ordinances, not
their interpretation of them," he
said.
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall, however, said she too had
questions about the proposed build-

"Enterprise Florida has a pro-
gram called the International
Business Expansion Initiative for
Small and Medifim-Sized Counties,"
he said. "Small, rural counties have
difficulty getting to be players in
the global economy. This program
provides funds to allow small coun-
ties to become players."
Rieck said international trade is
important to the county's econom-
ic future.
"It's a global market," he said.
"The competition is from overseas
and our future markets are going to
be overseas."

ing.
"I have major concerns. ...
People have a right to speak," she
said. "If we have accumulated this
much money in the building depart-
merit ... cut the permitting fees. If
you have that much money, some-
thing's wrong with this picture."
Marshall also said she was wor-
ried about building in the current
real estate climate.
"When you look at the permit-
ting, everything is down. These
funds may be needed to offset the
costs of the future," she said. "I can-
not support this building being
done. When I read that article, I felt
like: 'Ooh, someone's reading my
.mind.'"
Commissioner Jim B. Higgin-
botham also voiced doubts about
the proposal, suggesting that exist-
ing office space should be analyzed


grant were the creation of "inter-
nationally oriented collateral mate-
rials" and suggestions to better take
advantage of the Port of
Fernandina.
"Collateral materials in the
advertising and marketing business
are brochures that help you tell the
county's story to people who don't
live here," Rieck said. "Let's say I
went on a visit to Atlanta and want-
ed to tell them about' Nassau
County. Well, I could tell them about
Nassau County, but the brochure is
something I can leave behind to tell
our story. Part of what I'm propos-
ing is that we use part of the grant
money we've applied for to create
brochures telling our story in four
languages: English, Spanish,
Chinese and Japanese."
Rieck also emphasized the
importance of the port in realizing
Nassau County's potential in the

before committing to a new build-
ing.
Boyle said approval or disap-
proval of the building proposal was-
n't the issue.
"The point I'm making is, that is
not the work of the P and Z board to
be (talking to the paper)," he said.
"... If they want to speak from the
heart, that's what this podium is
for."
"If you want to make a case for
this, that's your prerogative,"
Marshall told Boyle. "Maybe I just
didn't see what you saw in (Stack's
comments)."
Hallman noted that Stack, a real
estate developer, has had permit
applications denied by the building
department in the past. "It.comes
very close to appearing to be a per-
sonal issue," he said.
Marshall continued to defend


global market.
"Fernandina has one of the few
deepwater ports on the Eastern
seaboard, and that provides sort of
a gateway for international trade,"
he said.
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham agreed. 'The Port
is a sleeping giant and we need to
pay attention to it," he told Rieck.
To that end, the grant application
proposed two feasibility studies.
The first would determine whether
Nassau County should participate in
a U.S. foreign-trade zone program,
which encourages companies to
keep jobs in the United States
through import-export tax incen-
tives.
"The key to Fernandina (partic-
ipating in the program) is: Is there
a user who could take advantage
of the program, because it's expen-
sive to set it up and maintain it?"


Stack. "Every person in this county
has a right to criticize us," she said.
Boyle, however, agreed with
Hallman that Stack's opposition to
the proposal had the appearance of
a personal issue.
"It's true that I've had some very
unsatisfactory experiences with the
building department," Stack said
Tuesday. "It sensitized me to the
fact that the building department
is not very user-friendly."
However, he denied that his
opposition to the proposed build-
ing is personal.
"If anything, if I thought that a
new building would help them do a
better job and become more user-
friendly, I'd definitely support it,"
he said.
Stack also acknowledged that
he understood some board mem-
bers' frustration.
"I can see where they're com-
ing from," he said. 'The Planning
and Zoning Board and the com-
mission need to have frequent meet-
ings directed at plans for the future.
I've talked to the commission in our
meetings (and said) that I was con-
cerned that our process lends itself
to this type of problem."
Commissioner Tom Branan was
absent from Monday's meeting.


Rieck said.
The other study would d6ter-
mine the feasibility of setting up a
remote containerized cargo transfer
station, where cargo transported
from arriving ships would be trans-
ferred from local trucks to long-
haul rigs.
Higginbotham said he supports
the creation of a transfer station.
'That would be a big economic
incentive that we could provide,"
he said. "That would put a lot of
people to work."
Commissioner Mike Boyle also
complimented the proposal
"Ithink these (ideas) are all very
worthwhile ... I think your back-
ground experience and credentials
and Nassau County's potential is a
great combination," he told Rieck.
"I think it's the board's job to sup-
port you any way we can."

Jefferson County, Ala.,
by name. The county is

It may become the next

years later. Jefferson County
officials met Friday with U.S.
government and Federal
Reserve representatives in try-
ing to avert a potential bank-
ruptcy.
Jefferson is the largest
county by population in
Alabama. It has, however, been

A similar
jolt occurred to the municipal
landscape in the early 1990s
with Orange County. It is dji~t
vu, all over again. But this is
anything but funny.
The.costs of carrying
debt related to a mammoth
sewer project could alone
reach $250 million for Jefiferson
County. To avoid bankruptcy,
county officials will attempt
to restructure some bonds
and renegotiate payments.

a $140 million bond issue to pay
for widening ALA in Yulee. The
premise was that the county
would borrow the money to
fund the overdue project now,
and be repaid by the state later.
Within the city of
Fernandina Beach, there have
been discussions about borrow-
ing money (by issuing bonds)
to buy the downtown post office
building and the First Baptist
Church buildings.
Both these actions would
result in multimillion-dollar
bond issues during a time
when the financial markets are
tense and skittish. And munici-
pal debt is being received as
well as news reports from the
Iraq War.
Bond issues are the way
municipalities borrow money.
With unreceptive markets, a
municipality will have to pay
higher interest rates to try to
attract buyers. In addition, the
municipal markets are reeling
due to the financial troubles of
insurers that guarantee the prin-
cipal on the triple-A-rated bonds
(it is unlikely that either the
county or the city would receive
a triple-A rating, which is the
highest).
In addition, municipalities in
Florida have been dealt a blow
by the implosion of a state-man-
aged money fund. Withdrawals
by cities and counties from the
state fund have been restricted
due to problems with sub-prime
securities invested in by man-

To further complicate mat-
ters, the state -'and voters -
have mandated that cities and
counties in Florida reduce their
tax rates this year and in com-
ing years.
Orange County became a
household name back in 1994
with its financial troubles. The
size of the Jefferson County
problems are bigger than even
those of Orange County.

County allocates funds



to promote tourism


RYAN SMIT IH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commis-
sion voted to allocate $100,000 from
the Amelia Island Tourist
Development Council's Marketing
Reserves Fund for targeted local
advertising at its April 9 meeting.
The advertising is intended to
promote Amelia Island in nearby
cities such as Jacksonville and
Orlando, said TDC Managing
Director Gil Langley.
"We saw an opportunity to
expand our market reach a little
closer to home," he said.
Commissioner Jim B. Higgin-
botham said Amelia Island makes
sense as a tourist destination for
Floridians in the current economy.
"This town really does have a
big, thriving interest in tourism,"
Higginbotham said. "With the high
gas prices and airline hassles.., we
need to see if we can't get interest
from people who might come small
distances maybe 100 miles to
help out our small businesses."
Langley said the money would
probably be replenished by the end
of the year through the hotel tax,
which provides 1(X) percent of the
TDC's funding.
"The way the hotel tax is track-
ing this year, even though we're
taking money from the fund, we'll
probably end up about the same
place at the end of the year," he
said.


In fact, hotel taxes collected from
the beginning of fiscal 2008 through
February the most recent data
available total $61;255 more than
projections, and $56,000 more than
was collected in the same period:
last year.
Commissioner Toi Branan said
the $100,000 would le money well .
spent.
"As (tourism) goes up, so does'
the dollar," he said. "It's a win-win
situation."
The approval alloWs the TDC to
distribute $2,000 ta pJdcal organ-
izations that coord hate: special
events to attract visitors to the
island. The 2008 grant funding is
double the amount traditionally
awarded by the TDC, a move
intended to strengthen the desti-
nation's tourism appeal during a
soft economic period.
The commissioners also
endorsed TDC grants for the fol-,
lowing organizations: Wild Amelia
($3,000), Amelia Islapd Museum of


History ($5,000), Amelia Island Film
Festival ($5,000), Les DeMerle
Amelia Island Jazz Festival ($4,000)
and Historic Fernandina Merchants
Association ($4,000). The TDC
grants are designed to attract visi-
tors to the destination, encourage
increased visitor spending, rein,
force existing positive images and'
provide added value to those visit-
ing Amelia Island. The application
process is available to riot-for-prof.
it, public school or government
organizations offering events that
are open and accessible to the gen-
eral public and that create a positive
impact for the destination.
The Tourism Development
Council is a nine-member board
appointed by the county commis-
sion to oversee the marketing of
Amelia Island as a tourism destina-
tion. The program is managed
under a contract with the Amelia
Island/Fernandina Beach/Yulee
Chamber of Commerce. For visitor

Abigthankyou
We are so grateful for the love and care given to
our family during a most difficult time. Our com-
munity is very fortunate to have these indispensa-
ble healthcare institutions.
During the past two years and 10 months Quality
Health provided a home away from home for Mimi
Decker. The CNAs (Ella) were diligent in providing
for her hygiene and comfort. The nurses (Ellen,
Vanessa and Staci) were sensitive to her needs and
thorough in administering medically related treat-
ments.
The activities department, supervised by Sam
Wendell, offered joy to the patients' daily lives. They
were dedicated, nurturing and personally invested
in making Mimi feel significant and valuable.
Maggie, Paulette, Renee and Cathy were among
many others who were faithful in giving continubus
encouragement.
While a resident at Quality, Mimi made frequent
visits to Baptist Medical Center Nassau. As a patient
Mimi received superior care. The staff was effi-
cient at overseeing and dispensing treatment, as
well as keeping the family apprised of her situa-
tion. Dr. Henry Rodeffer and associates and the
nurses at Baptist Nassau were attentive to our needs,
professional and compassionate.
A great big thank you to Quality Health and
Baptist Medical Center Nassau.

It's not your mother's TV news


T alk about hypocrisy.
And there has been a lot of talk about it.
The chattering classes have cluttered the
airwaves with a great deal of cluck-clucking
about the hypocrisy of the former New York gover-
nor and crime fighter indulging in the very crime lie
claimed to pursue.
A lissome lady news anchor with a a descending
neckline nearly colliding with an ascending hemline
decried the fact that a 22-year-old call girl was mar-
keting sex. One had to wonder what did this mini-
mally dressed news anchor think she was peddling?
Too much of television news has gone Holly-
wood. In a recent interview, the former governor of
Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, accused a CNN reporter
of being in the entertainment business rather than
the news business. Who is responsible for the trans-
formation TV bosses seeking ratings or news-
women who have allowed themselves to look more
like hirelings searching for a client at the Mayflower
Hotel than a lady researching a breaking news
story? There are, of course, many exceptions as in
Ann Curry of NBC and CNN's Christiane Amanpour,
both fine newswomen who never seem to feel the
need to emphasize their allure over their purpose.
It is painful to criticize a profession in which I was
one of the earliest female members, but the alleged
downward spiral of TV news is something worthy of
examination. Cable news, in general, resembles a
Steven Spielberg spectacular more than an Edward
R. Murrow production. Sets flash lights. Headlines
zoom in and out. Dark voices in ominous tones pre-
view doomsday stories to come. The only relief from
all this drama comes in continuous commercials.
In the Jacksonville media, Harrell and Harell
competes so repetitively with Morgan and Morgan
they merge into one law firm in the viewer's mind.
Turn on the TV at any given hour hoping to catch a
headline and more often you receive a sales pitch, no
matter how many times you switch the channel.
And then there is what passes as news when it
does manage to wedge itself between commercials.
On cable, bimbos, bad guys and political pratfalls

Stanton

LIFE...
THE WAY
WE ARE


predominate. The endless cov-
erage of celebrities going to
prison, rehab or their graves
from drug overdose attempts
to excite the emotion while
insulting the intellect. As Gov.
Ventura pointed out, the TV
.media spent one month on the
death of a Playmate of the
Month. Over and over viewers
cry, 'Who cares?"
Cable news with 24 hours
to fill, that's who. Instead of
the paparazzi, we now have
the cabarazzi. Last night on
Hannity and Colmes so many
people were shouting their
points that substance was
totally obscured in what
sounded like a sandbox skir-


mish. Talking heads have become screaming heads.
What is all this continual bickering news doing to
the American psyche? "
Democratic strategist Bob Beckel recently
wrote, "Anger is the most corrosive force in
American politics.... Wrath scatters people rather
than brings them together." His co-columnist Cal
Thomas pointed out'the reason it is employed,
"It gets the checkbooks out (and) juices TV
ratings."
If the latter is true, it raises the interesting ques-
tion as to whether we viewers are as much to blame
for the state of TV news as the producers. There is
little question a show without ratings would soon be
off the air.
During Holy Week, I tried fasting from television
news instead of chocolate, and to my great surprise I
noticed three things: 1) After the initial weaning, I
did not miss it;.2) Much more was accomplished; 3)
When I turned the set back on Easter Sunday, it was
as if time had stood still. Anchors were still hysteri-
cal about the same issues. Morgan and Morgan and
Harrell and Harrell were still advertising.


With 24 hours at one's disposal and a world with-
in technological reach, one would think the
cabarazzi could find more than three or four stories
to cover, but no. One show follows another mining
the same topics; political infighting, scandal or the
latest disaster. Hurricane season is nearly upon us
and. our anxiety cup will undoubtedly overflow as
danger stalks us on the small screen long before the
wind blows and the rain falls. We will be treated to
the usual sights of "heroic" TV reporters blowing
sideways, hanging onto flapping stop signs as they
revel in an approaching storm.
There are, however, true heroes out there; people
who are changing the world with selfless courage.
When a disaster does strike, they are on the scene
bringing food, water, shelter. In war-torn countries,
they are volunteering their time and expertise to
provide medical care or teaching single mothers
how to become entrepreneurs. During the terrible
Bosnian war, which took 200,000 lives and created
over a million refugees, there was a steady stream of
relief workers, many from the United States, who
brought food, clothes, trauma counselors, medicine
and money to help the beleaguered.
One brave cadre of men drove six ambulances
across Europe and delivered them to gymnasiums
turned hospitals in the war-torn region. An estimat-
ed 10,000 people from 30 countries of the world
staged a peace and prayer march in Bosnia, braving
stern warnings from the U.S. State Department and
the Pentagon about a possible aerial attack from the
Serbs to do so.
A video of the daring effort was rejected by my
old network, ABC, because in the words of Sam
Donaldson, "it's hard to.prove a negative." The nega-
tive being, an attack did not take place.
One of the marchers, an Indian woman from
London, was prophetic when she said before the
march, "Maybe it would be better if we get killed. It
would make more news."
Sad but true.

spondent for ABC.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


'Dunderhead decisions'
I cannot believe the county commissioners, once
again, have flagrantly gone against the community's cit-
izens and approved yet another strip mall which will
ruin the lovely area of Marsh Lakes, create havoc for
their residents, destroy more beautiful greenery and
add even more traffic to A1A. I hope the state
Department of Transportation will step in at some
point and stop this blatant disregard of our traffic and
safety issues.
Why don't the developers just construct the Mairsh
Lakes project vertically and place it at the foot of the
Shave Bridge where the Tuscany condos were to be
built? The view is already ruined. I wonder if the would-
be developers of Tuscany have any duty to either fol-
low through with construction or face some form of
financial penalty for the eyesore that has been created?
Each and every commissioner who voted to approve
either of the above-mentioned projects should be tarred,
feathered and ran qut Qftowan.I truly, hope the voters
will remember this: and dif many other dunderhead:.
decisions the commissioners have chosen and vote
them all out. Then we could start with a clean slate -
it cannot get any worse.

Short notice
There are no short memories over Crane Island,
only poor communications. Ron Sapp's Viewpoint
("Crane Island and short memories," April 9) had the
wrong focus. Had we known the city commission was
going to take up the access road issue we would have
filled the room with objectors. I only learned about it
at 6:30 on the evening the meeting was held.
Many of us were involved with other battles. Some
were away. Others didn't see a notice. Perhaps the city
commission has to take a look at how it communicates
with the public to let them know what is going to be dis-
cussed at meetings.
The fight against Crane Island development goes on.
Our legal action against the county for violating state
law in approving the rezoning continues with trial date
set for October. The public continues to support the
legal fight with more than $20,000 raised so far.

Boats don't cause accidents
Re: "Riding jet ski fun but dangerous," April 4.
I was appalled to read several broad, and inaccurate,
statements about personal watercraft (PWC) in the
Sports Medicine column. First and foremost, PWC
like any other vessels, are not dangerous. Boats don't
cause accidents, inexperienced and reckless opera-
tors do. The U.S. Coast Guard affirms this fact in its
annual boating accident report. Coast Guard statistics
also show that accidents involving PWC have been
steadily declining for more than a decade. In fact, more
than 99 percent of all registered PWC are enjoyed acci-
dent-free.each year.
PWC are fun for the whole family, and contrary to
the outdated rhetoric Dr. (Greg) Smith relied on for his
column, today's PWC are among the most environ-
mentally friendly low emissions vessels on the water.
The Environmental Protection Agency's standards
aiming for a 75 percent reduction in marine engine
emissions were met or exceeded by all PWC manu-
facturers years ahead of schedule. Furthermore, many
national parks have restored PWC use after scientifically
finding that they present no unique impact on the envi-
ronment.
The industry agrees with Dr. Smith, however, when
he encourages boaters to first take a safety course,
Florida requires all boatersyounger than 22 to pass an
approved boating course. Since this law was passed,
accidents involving PWC have declined nearly 80 per-
cent in the state.
Safety should be every boater's top priority, a phi-
losophy that guides our industry as we advocate across
the country for states to adopt our model legislation that
requires boating safety education and minimum age
requirements. Purchasing a PWC as a family boat is a
terrific idea because they are easy to maneuver, oper-
ate, store and transport. We recommend that the entire
family take an approved boating safety course togeth-
er before embarking on the water. This will ensure a
fun and safe family outing.

everyone to think about our Second Amendment rights.
If you are going to vote, I hope you know just how
important your vote will affect your rights to own a gun,
whether you own a shotgun for hunting or clay shoot-
ing, a single-shot, a semi-auto or a pump, a rifle for hunt-
ing or target shooting or a pistol for protection or tar-
get shooting.
You see, it's all about your rights; you get mad
when they talk about your freedom of speech or our
religious freedom. Most of the Democrats are willing
to give up our rights to own a gun; they need to
think if they can take one of our rights, which one will
be next? Will it be freedom of speech, our freedom of
religion? If they take one of our guns, which one will
be next.
They talk about the evil 50-caliber; we own them
because we love long-range shooting. Enough of my
words, here is a story of a little girl that was trained to
shoot:
Butte, Mont., Nov. 5, 2007
"Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico
Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily over-
power home-alone 11-year-old Patricia Harrington after
her father had left their two-story home.
"It seems the two crooks never learned two things:
they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay
shooting champion since she was nine.
"Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men
broke through the front door of the house. She quick-
ly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12-gauge
Mossberg 500 shotgun.
"Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor
only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of
,buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee crouch aim. He
suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.
"When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a
blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the
street where he bled to death before medical help
could arrive.
"It was found out later that Resindez was armed with
a stolen 45-caliber handgun he took from another home
invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David Burien,
was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the
chest."
Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC,
CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN or ABC news? An 11-year-old
girl, properly trained, defended her home, and her-
self, against two murderous illegal immigrants -and she
wins, she is still alive.
Now that is gun control!

Dr.Rho
The recent retirement of Dr. Tae Rho was a huge
change for many families in Nassau County, especial-
ly those with children ("Longtime local physician hangs
up his stethoscope," March 7).
For many years Dr. Rho was a household name
that was the final word of the health issues affecting
your child and often was the first person called when-
ever there was a suspicious sounding cold or change
in your child's health. I know for Janet and me that Dr.


Rho and his wife were a Godsend; many times we
would call about one of our small children and Mrs. Rho
would tell us they would meet us at the office and to
bring the child, in; this would happen during the
evenings, weekends and, yes, even holidays.
The dedication that Dr. Rho exhibited is the stuff that
legend is made of, and when he would walk in the
exam room very quietly and examine the child, look-
ing for those famous "red spots" on the back or chest
to signify the presence of a virus, you would hold your
breath in anticipation of the verdict. Dr. Rho would
professionally answer questions, always knew the
answers and when he was puzzled was perhaps one of
the most aggressive in.finding the keys to the diagno-
sis, ordering various tests and exams until confirmation
or a diagnosis was made.
On one of our last visits to Dr. Rho's office with my
son, he had what we assumed was a cold that seemed
to linger around for a bit longer than it should have.
Having been educated about children's health issues
by Dr. Rho over the last nine years, we knew some of
the signs we were supposed to look for to rule out a sim-
ple virus.
On this visit he listened carefully to my son's chest
and then looked at me and said plainly that he was very
sick and had some pneumonia in his left lung. He
immediately wrote the prescriptions and gave detailed
instructions and made sure we had the follow-up
appointment before we left. I was thankful to have
taken my son to see his doctor and to catch in time what
could have been a serious infection lurking in his body.
.I credit Dr. Rho with many times saving the life and pro-
tecting the health of both my children.
I would like to add my voice to the many voices that
I am sure would agree that we owe Dr. Rho and his wife
a huge thank you for their many years of service and
dedication to the children and families of this com-
*munity.
Thank you Dr. Rho, I am sorry we did not have a
retirement party for you. I am afraid that the city would
not have a building large enough to accommodate
everyone that would want to come and express their
thanks. You have been a hero and a real example of a
medical professionalism. I will also be thankful that we
had Dr. Rho on call always available to heal our children
and help us become the parents we are today. Thank
you for your guiding hand and the impact on the life of
our community.

Martin seeks School Board seat


Donna Martin has announced
her candidacy for Nassau County
School Board, District 1.
She seeks to replace Janet
Adkins. who is not seeking reclec-
tion but instead seeks election to a
seat in the Florida House of
Representatives.
Martin is employed as a pro-
fessor of mathematics for Florida
Community College at Jacksonville,
where she has been nominated for
the Outstanding Faculty Award for
2008.
She graduated from the
University of Central Florida,
summa cum laude, with a bache-
lor's degree in mathematics, and
earned her master's degree in
mathematical science from the
University of North Florida, where
she was selected as the outstanding
graduate student in mathematics
and statistics. She is currently pur-
suing a postgraduate educational
specialist degree in higher educa-
tion with a concentration in devel-
opmental education at Appalachian


State University.
Martin has
lived in Nassau
CoLnt y for 15

husband, John,
who is retired
from the Navy
Martin and currently
serves as Nassau
County's veter-
ans' service officer. They have one
daughter, Janel, who is a graduate
of Fernandina Beach High School,
and is currently employed as a
teacher there.
"I care about the future of
Nassau County," Martin said in her
campaign announcement. "I believe
that the future of Nassau County
depends on the decisions we make
today that will impact our most pre-
cious resource, our children. It is
our responsibility to ensure that
the children of this county contin-
ue to be given every opportunity to
learn and grow into productive cit-
izens, fully prepared for the chal-


lenges they will face as adults."
Martin said she believes that
the uncertainty regarding state
funding over the next few years
will require the School Board to
work diligently to ensure that
taxpayer money is spent where it
can most benefit the students of
Nassau County and continue to pro-
vide the best instructional meth-
ods, materials and resources avail-
able.
Additionally, she feels the
School Board needs to continue to
offer competitive salaries and ben-
efits to teachers so to attract and
retain the best.
As the population of our county
continues to grow, Martin said she
believes it is vitally important that
the School District monitors
growth, plans accordingly to
improve and expand existing
schools and budgets properly for
the construction of new schools to
meet the demands of a large influx
of new school-age children.
Martin also advocates for school


resource officers, saying, "The sttu-
dents of Nassau County deserve
to feel safe and secure in their
schools. With the continued pres-
ence of resource officers, our stu-
dents will enjoy a safe, non-threat-
ening learning environment."
Since filing as a candidate last
December, Martin has been attend-
ing School Board meetings regu-
larly and is familiar with the issues.
"As I listen to the decisions the
board makes, whether it is award-
ing a multimillion dollar contract
to improve a school campus or rec-
ognizing the Boy Scout in the audi-
ence who showed up to earn a
merit badge, I am impressed with
the board's professionalism and
excited about the opportunity to
serve."

This year Fort George Island is home to a rookery of great blu
herons, above. Some years great egrets take over the heron
nests instead, below.

News-Leadercolumnist Pat Foster-Turley will be off to Africa later
this month to lead a team performing a biodiversity and tropical
forestry assessment for Nigeria. The U.S. Agency for International
Development hired the team to help ensure that activities in Nigeria
are conducted in an environmentally sustainable manner, while at
the same time identifying opportunities jpr enhancing the quality of
the natural resources theerosp-ojtjifffY led the teamr.performing',
such an assessment in Nigeria six years ago, and promises to file
reports from Nigeria next month.


What's just around the corner?


7ou lever know wlhat
/ you'll find just around
the corner. For years'
inow I've beell traveling
to the St. Augustine Alligator
Farm at leasl once in the spring
to see the rookery of herons,
egrets, ibis, wood storks and
their associates within clear view
ill trees, protected by alligators
S swarming the lagoon around
them. These nesting birds seek
protected areas where they are
undisturbed. Alligators in a moat
are a time-honored way of keep-
ing enemies at bay, everyone
knows that, even the birds.
This time of year, the Alligator
Farm is an especially exciting
place for bird watchers and
nature photographers. With a
photography pass, the park
opens early, when the light is per-
feet for those close-up shots of
nesting water birds in the trees
ER close enough to enable good
e shots with just a normal lens.
Watching the birds trading
courtship sticks and building
their nests and feeding their
young is an addictive pleasure,
well worth the drive.
About 85 miles north of us, at
Harris Neck National Wildlife
Refuge on the Georgia coast, the
springtime rookery of herons and
egrets is also in full swing. Here
the man-made retention ponds
are filled with alligators of all
sizes and the diversity of nesting
water birds is astounding. Even
wood storks are now nesting
here, far north of their historic
S range. For many of us in Nassau
County, an annual spring pilgrim-
age to the Alligator Farm or the
Harris Neck NWR is a must.
But now, thanks to my new
friend Liz, I've got far less dis-
tance to travel to see the marvel
of nesting water birds. I can visit
her back yard just a few miles
south of us, on Fort George
Island, and see all the nesting

The great blue herons of Fort
George Island have taken over
her woods. High up in the pine
trees, amid the hanging Spanish
moss, this colony has already
begun its springtime activities.
About a dozen great blues were
sitting in the branches or perched
on nests they are busy renovating
for this new nesting season when
I visited a few weeks ago. While I
watched, herons flew in carrying
sticks back to the nest to rebuild
for the upcoming breeding sea-
son. Occasionally a raucous
squawk announced some heron
dispute or another but the birds
seemed undisturbed by our pres-
ence.
These birds are used to
human observers. Liz and her
husband have been watching the
birds in this rookery since the
year after they moved here in


J


claim the old rookery before the
later nesting egrets get there. But
Liz's theory of nest exchange
makes sense too.
After all these years of watch-
ing this rookery from her front
porch, I'd trust Liz's observations
more than most. Now that I've
met Liz, I'm looking forward to
my own first season of rookery
watching on Fort George Island.
Settling down at sunset with a
new friend, a nice bottle of wine
and an active heron rookery to
watch, life doesn't get much bet-
ter than this!

1990. No herons were nesting
there when they bought the prop-
erty, but they must have known a
good thing when she and her
husband built their home and set-
lied in. The herons showed up
the next spring, and have been
there most years ever since.
That is, of course, on the years
that they have not been evicted
by their cousins, the great white
egrets. According to Liz, the
great blue herons are busy nest-
builders and carry sticks to
replenish the nest throughout the
season. Not so the egrets. On the
years when the egrets win the
territory, they move into the old
heron nests and raise their own
broods. But, Liz says, the egrets
are sloppy nestbuilders, and let
the well-built old heron nests dis-
integrate into rubble. In a year or
two of nesting here, the nests
become too dilapidated and the
egrets move on, presumably to
evict another set of great blue
herons.
With the egrets elsewhere,
the great blues dutifully return to
the pine trees, to take ownership
once again, and to build their
well-maintained nests once again
in the rubble of their old ones.
And so it goes, year by year for a
couple of decades of wild bird
watching in Liz's backyard.
Published accounts agree that
great blue herons and great
egrets rotate their use of certain
rookeries and no one is sure why.
Some say that great blue herons
are early nesters and actually

'Save Haven,' not abandoned babies


SI IANNON MALCOM
Ncs l.cidcr

Scared parents abandoning
newborn babies in places such as
dumpsters or ditches has sadly
become common enough to be
almost a cliche, a plotline used in
television and movies with happy
endings but usually ending tragi-
cally in real life.
Abandoned babies often do not
survive and, if tracked down, the
parent or parents face criminal
charges.
But there is an alternative to
infant abandonment the Safe
Haven for Newborns program in
Florida provides care to newborn
infants left with someone at a fire
station or hospital.
There hasn't been a case of
infant abandonment in recent years
in Nassau County, and local fire
rescue personnel are hoping to


keep it hat wvay Iby getting the word
out that newborn infilantsthrecdays
old or less cal legally be left with
personnel at a fire station or hos-
pilal.
"(l'he prograin) has been
around since the year 2000, but
everybody has not been familiar
with it." said Lt. Robert Beasley of
Fernanidina Beach Fire Rescue.
Beasley has been working with
the Safe Haven organization and
will be conducting training sessions
for employees who work at a safe
haven location.
"I will present them with prop-
er procedures to be followed in the
event of a drop-off," he said.
Parents can drop off the infants
at any fire station or hospital pro-
viding it is staffed 24 hours; Beasley
said the only questions asked per-
tain to necessary medical informa-
tion. Parents do not have to leave
their name and police will not


attempt to track them, he said,
unil'ss they suspect the baby has
been neglected or abused.
If a parent changes their mind,
they Cal contact tle conrllthouse in
the county where the inifanlt was
left and find out how to petition to
have parental rights restored.
When.a baby is dropped off at a
Safe Haven location the baby
must be left with a staff member -
they receive immediate medical
treatment and social workers begin
looking for a home for the new-
born.
Since 2000,98 babies have been
left at Safe Haven locations; nine
were in Duval County.
Beasley said expectant mothers
can even contact a Safe Haven prior
to the baby's birth for assistance
with prenatal care and other
resources.
"They may not know which end
is up, but they can contact us before


the baby is even born," Ileasley
said. "We'll take care of her until
she ihais that baby ... and make sure
that baby is going to be a healthy,
viable baby and have the best
chance of life they can have."
Mothers who contact Safe
Haven prior to the birth are not
obligated to give up the baby; in
fact, Beasley said, "hopefully she'll
keep it, but lots of times they don't."
But if they do choose to sur-
render the baby to Safe Haven staff,
they are doing so legally; leaving a
newborn at any other location not
specified as a Safe Haven is con-
sidered abandonment and is a crim-
inal offense. More importantly, it is
dangerous for the infant.

Regional counsel for criminal cases


SHANNON MALCOM
News L.eader

There have been some delays,
but as of February there is once
again a local attorney on board to
handle criminal cases that cannot
be defended by the Public
Defender's Office due to conflicts of
interest.
Teresa Sopp is being appointed
to represent indigent defendants
who cannot be represented by pub-
lic defenders. Sopp was previously
one of a handful of local attorneys
who could be appointed in those
circumstance, but she and most
others stopped in July after a new
state law, providing for the creation
of the Offices of Criminal Conflict
and Civil Regional Counsel,
brought about a significant reduc-
tion in compensation for private
attorneys
Since July, Nassau County

Circuit Court Judge Robert M.
Foster had been appointing
Jacksonville attorneys to handle
such cases while waiting for the
regional counsel to get started.
A lawsuit filed by the Florida
Association of Criminal Defense
Lawyers, Inc., put a bump in the
road for the new offices when a
judge agreed with the association
and in December declared the new
law unconstitutional, but that ruling
was overturned and offices for the
Fourth Judicial Circuit which
includes Nassau County were set
up in Jacksonville.
Sopp now works with the office
part-time, in addition to continuing
her private practice, so she will be
first in line to handle defendants
ineligible for representation by pub-
lic defenders. If she has a conflict of
interest, the case would then be
appointed to one of the Jacksonville
attorneys contracted to handle such

cases.
"(Sopp) is working part-time for
us and she still has private clients
... so she can pick up the cases, and
... she's not going to retire on the
salary but it's enough to make it
reasonable ... and she builds her
practice around (privately retained
cases)," said Jeffrey Lewis, region-
al conflict counsel for the First
District Court of Appeal. "It helps
us with our load, and it helps her
meet her basic overhead."
The new law was passed in 2007
and provides for five regional con-
flict counsel offices throughout the
state. Each office is headed by a
regional counsel and will consist
of attorneys employed by the state
to defend indigent conflict cases
while being-paid an annual salary of
approximately $39,000 to $50,000.
Private attorneys, always used for
conflict cases in the past, will still be
used but as a last resort after con-
flicts with the public defender's
office and regional conflict office
have been certified.
Lewis said the goal of the new
law is to save tax dollars by reduc-
ing the cost of the criminal justice
system in Florida. Fees paid to pri-
vate attorneys handling conflict
cases had "risen exponentially" in
the past few years, he said.


"On June 30, 2006, $45 million
had been paid (in the previous
year) for all the contract attorneys
statewide, that was the Xbox mur-
ders all the way down to DUI
cases," he said. "On June 30,2007,
that amount was $97 million it
had more than doubled ... this new
system might absorb these fluctu-
ations a little better, you're looking
at a cost-of-living increase every
year versus being totally subject to
the nature of the crimes being com-
mitted."
Cases involving serious crimes
and more than one co-defendant
can become extremely expensive,
potentially costing hundreds of
thousands of dollars. By reducing
the number of contracted private
attorneys, and reducing the rates
private attorneys are paid when
they do take conflict cases, Lewis
said the new system should save
the state money.
"I believe the state really looked
at what it cost the public defender
(offices) to deliver legal service,
and what was paid to private attor-
neys, and made an honest effort
to try to bring those two costs into
alignment somehow," Lewis said.
"That's kind of what motivated this,
it's a funding issue."

Kidnap attempt
An attempted kidnapping was

The victim, a 40-year-old Callahan
woman, told police she was walk-
ing south on US 1 when she
noticed a black tractor-trailer trav-
eling north on US 1. She said the
truck began to slow as it
approached her, then stopped and
a man exited the passenger side
and told her to get into the vehi-
cle. She said when she refused, he
began to chase her. She said he
stopped chasing her as they
approached Cedar River Seafood;
she then went to a nearby con-
venience store and called police.
The incident happened about
9:30 p.m.
The victim described the male
suspect who was driving the
truck; she could not provide any
more details, according to the
police report.
The incident is under investi-
gation.

Tools and property worth
more than $1,000 were reported
stolen from a Yulee Hills rental

The property owner reported
the items stolen on Friday; he said
the last time he saw the items,
worth approximately $1,350, was
Thursday about 2:20 p.m.

two plows.
The burglary is still being

Lawsuit


objects to


AlA traffic
A lawsuit has been filed
charging Nassau County with
violation of its comprehensive
plan and state and local concur-
rencv laws by continuing to
approve developments that will
add more traffic to already failing
sections of AlA/SR 200.
The action was brought by
Robert Weintraub of Marsh
Lakes. Weintraub is represented
by Ponte Vedra attorney
Deborah Andrews.
The suit objects to a planned
shopping center at the Marsh
Lakes entrance that was
approved by the Nassau County
Commission on March 10. The
five-building center, which is pro-
jected to have a liquor store and
a-restaurant, will add an esti-
mated 2,840 vehicle trips per day
to a section of A1A that is already
at 135 percent of capacity on the
county's concurrency chart,
Weintraub maintains.
The suit asks for injunctive
relief to stop the development
while the legal issues are
resolved.
Marsh Lakes is just west of
the Shave Bridge to Amelia
Island.



Lawsuit

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
A complaint was filed March
10 in Nassau County Circuit
Court by resident Julia Parsons
against the city of Fernandina
Beach.
City commissioners have
authorized City Attorney Tammi
Bach to defend the city in the
matter.
The complaint, which asks for
damages of $15,000 exclusive of
costs and attorney's fees, alleges
that city police officers Rhonda
Sanderson and Ernest Haskins
unlakwfully-stopped,,Parson's .-air'
in 'March 2004': Haskihs-''no
longer works for the force.
The suit, filed by Fernandina
Beach lawyer John Cascone,
makes counts of false deten-
tion/kidnapping and false arrest
against the officers. Parsons
claims in the lawsuit that she was
driving to classes on March 9,
2004, when Sanderson and
Haskins detained her car and
took her driver's license away
from her at the side of the road.
She also alleges that the offi-
cers questioned the whereabouts
of her husband, and told her they
would keep her driver's license
unless' she went home and
helped them arrest him on a war-
rant.
The complaint states that the
officers' actions "were without
lawfully issued process, a valid
warrant or probable cause to
believe Parsons had committed
or was committing a crime."
Parsons states Sanderson and
Haskins forced her to return
home and knock on her own
door while the officers waited,
and then arrested her husband in
front of her.
Parsons claims "emotional
trauma ... physical inconven-
ience, physical and emotional dis-
comfort, marital discord, mental
suffering, embarrassment, humil-
iation, disgrace and injury to her
reputation and fear of law
enforcement officers which con-
tinue to this day."

WEDNESDAY, APRIL. 16, 2008 NEWS News-Leader


PHOTOS BY JOHN LLOYD (HUPPHOTOI MAC.COM)/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER.


A surfer enjoys the waves on a winter's day near a pier on Amelia Island. Up, down, all around, it's enough to leave your head spinning.


Surf City, have some fun on Amelia Island


SCOTT CAVE
For the News Leader

It is 10 a.m. on an achingly cold
Wednesday morning. The strong
west wind pushes back against the
waves, flattening the normally tur-
bulent waters along Main Beach
into a shimmering blue-green
expanse as flat as a Kansas prairie.
The black skimmers shelter them-
selves behind a low sand dune,
their oversized red and black beaks
facing towards the wind. What
humans are on the beach walk with
hunched shoulders to try to con-
serve heat on this cold morning.
While the waves this morning


would usually have at least a few
surfers braving the cold waters, it
is too cold and flat today. But the
Fernandina Beach surfing com-
munity remains strong and friend-
ly this morning, albeit indoors.
"The scene here is great. There
isn't much trouble with people act-'
ing crazy, when there are waves
you don't have to fight for them,
and there are plenty of beach
accesses that you don't have to pay
for," said Dean Dombkowski, local
surfer and maker of custom surf-
boards.
Local surfers often mention the
open and friendly atmosphere of
the island's surf scene.


"The surf scene here on Amelia
Island has been a good one ever
since the '60s. A lot of the local
charm that has been lost in other
areas remains here," said Joe
Palmer, News-Leader columnist,
investigator for the federal gov-
ernment and Fernandina Beach
surfer for over 20 years.
Surfers and local business own-
ers also point out that the surfing
community in Amelia is much more
open and diverse than others.
Visitors from south Georgia, Jack-
sonville and Nassau County join in
with locals and there is little tension
among individuals, said Pipeline
Surf Shop co-owner Nancy Corley.
"It isn't like Huguenot (Memo-
rial Park in Duval County) where
the surfers try to own the beach.
People here are much better about
being friendly to one another,"
Corley said, adding that in other
areas local surfers are often hostile
to visitors.
The openness and relaxed
nature ot the Amelia Island surf-
ing community attracts surfers like


Blake Goodstein, who recently
moved to the island. Goodstein
moved to be closer to her boyfriend'
at Kings Bay Naval Submarine
Base, Ga., while she attends class-
es at the University of North
Florida in Jacksonville. Goodstein
began surfing about a year ago and
recently began working for Pipeline
Surf Shop.
The centers of the local surfing
community include the local surf
shops, Pipeline Surf Shop and
Driftwood Surf Shop. Pipeline Surf
Shop is owned by Nancy and
Lamar Corley and sells all the
necessities of the surfing lifestyle,
including swimwear, wetsuits, san-
dals, sunscreen, accessories and
surfing DVDs as well as skate-
boards, skim boards and surf-
boards. The Corleys built their
business from the ground up begin-
ning 15 years ago, Nancy Corley
said. Palmer attributes their suc-
cess to a sensible and patient busi-
ness approach, starting in a local
storefront and buying new items
as they were able to.

One of the major changes
Nancy Corley has witnessed over
the last several years has been a
sudden increase in the number of
female surfers in the area. Surf
companies started catering to
women a few years ago, making
clothing and accessories targeted at
them. She credits the 2002 release
of the movie "Blue Crush" with
popularizing the sport among
women. The movie featured a pro-
tagonist struggling to become a
female professional surfer. Many
surfers of all ages are also begin-
ning to embrace old-fashioned long-
boards again as opposed to the
more modern and angular short
boards that have dominated for the
last few decades.
Palmer has watched the local
surf community grow and develop
since he began surfing with his son
in 1984. He and friend Kevin
McCarthy founded the First Coast
chapter of the Eastern Surfing
Association several years later so
that their children would have a
more reliable set of competitions to


enter as their skills grew. The local
chapter continues to this day,
organizing competitions and rep-
resenting the surf community,
though Palmer and McCarthy are
no longer involved.
The continued atmosphere of
family and community that defines
the Amelia Island surfing commu-
nity continues to impress Palmer.
Palmer said he sees many older
surfers he has not seen in years
returning to surf with their chil-
dren and grandchildren. Older
surfers continue to look after the
youngest surfers, making parents
confident that they can leave their
children on the beach to surf.
"When you are my age, all these
surfers are. frozen in time at the
moment you met them, but now
they are like I was, with kids of
their own. I will never get tired of
it," Palmer said.

dent at the University of North

wont have a

chance to be

good without

thefootball
" f e backed it up last
S year when Kestahn
| Moore put the ball
.L ., on the turf and he'll
back it up again in 2008:
Urban Meyer will not play a
running back, even the
anointed savior Emmanuel
Moody from USC, if he has a
fumbling problem.
"He's got talent, but
there's no chance you'll see
him play regardless of what
dot.com says and all the e-
mail I'll get and everything
else," Florida head coach
Urban Meyer told reporters
Saturday, after Moody tainted
a solid performance in
Florida's spring game by fum-
bling on the opponent's one-
yard line.
While I agree for the most
part with Meyer's hard-nosed
stance on ball security, I'm
not so sure it didn't backfire
on him against Georgia last
season. Moore opened in
Jacksonville by shredding the
Bulldogs before coughing it
up in the first quarter and rid-
ing the pine most of the rest
of the way that day. And we
all remember how that turned
out.
Nevertheless, Meyer is
the one who makes millions
and the coach has reiterated
that under no uncertain cir-
cumstances will a running
back fumble and continue to
play for Florida. I'm sure
Saturday's muff was a freebie
for Moody. Gator fans can
only hope that he doesn't put
it on the grass against Hawaii
Aug. 30 and earn a six-game
seating assignment on the
bench ...
If there are concerns that
University of Florida QB Tim
Tebow is getting special treat-
ment from coaches that
might result in him losing his
edge, they can be put to rest.
The fact that Tebow was prac-
ticing with the flu last week is
an indicator in itself that no
special favors are being paid
to last year's Heisman Trophy
winner.
And on the practice field,
let me assure you that Tebow
is not viewed as the demigod
perceived of him by the gen-
eral public, but rather as the
guy who coaches expect to
set the example by doing the
little things right.
Last Friday, with Tebow
running a 100-degree temper-
ature, coaches were in his
grill for carrying the ball in
the wrong hand during a ball
security drill. That shows me
that the Heisman hasn't given
him a free pass.
Tebow might be the best
player to ever don a football
uniform at Florida. But it's
obvious that on the practice
field, he's just another guy
who is expected to do what
he's told...
High school spring foot-
ball will officially begin on
May 1 and is set to end with
three of the four Nassau
County high school teams -
Fernandina Beach, Yulee and
Hilliard battling it out in a
jamboree to be hosted by
Hilliard on May 22.
With that said, now is the
time for players to ease back
into some cardio training and
to start watching what they
put into their bodies. I'm cer-
tainly no Greg Smith (the
sports medicine doctor who
writes the News-Leader's
Friday column), but it doesn't
take a doctor to realize the
dangers of overexertion and
heat exhaustion.
Those who need an exam-
ple should Google the name
Ereck Plancher to read about
the UCF player who died not
even a month ago after taking
part in mat drills. So, players,
lay off the caffeine, start
drinking plenty of water and
get out on the track. You'll be
happy you did in two weeks.

like at the beginning of the season, was back. If we
can continue to swing the bats like we did against
Paxon and stay positive and intense, the next two

What California golf course is nicknamed
'Hogan's Alley'?


a) Riviera
b) Pinehurst


c) Pebble Beach
d) Shinecock .


Answer: a) "Hogan's Alley" is a nickname for Ihe Riviera
Country Club because of Ben Hogan's success there.


While we rarely see it happen from
a professional golfer, the shank is
an all too familiar shot in the arsenal
of the amateur golfer. The main
cause for the shank is that the club-
face remains open through impact.
When we strike the ball, the hosel of
the club is what hits the ball. Consequently, the ball
shoots off at virtually a 90 degree angle to the tra-
jectory that we are expecting when we line up to hit
it. One of the easiest fixes to the problem is to posi-
tion the ball in the hosel of the club and attempt to
hit the ball with the toe of the club. What this
accomplishes is that it makes you bring the club
back to the ball from the inside. The other bit of
advice is to make sure that your left forearm rotates
completely through impact. This makes sure the
club rotates all the way through after contact.

Croft plans Sailfish Pot .
4i L


"We were actually pre-fishing for a local kingfish
tournament when I hooked a nice sailfish," James
"Bear" Croft said. "I had also signed up for the 49th
annual Jacksonville Sailfish Pot and, as far as I
knew, my hooked sailfish might just be the first one
that could possibly qualify for the pot."
Croft was fishing with long time fishing compan-
ion Jack Ross when the six-foot-plus sailfish came
to the surface and billed a barbed "Goggle Eye"
live bait.The high-dollar.live bait, often costing
king fishermen more than $100 per dozen, was -
intended for locating tournament winning king
mackerel.
"That big sail put on one heck of a fight as both
Jack Ross and I worked the boat and lines so as to
enjoy the high leaping battle of my hooked sail-
fish," Croft said. "Suddenly I realized during the
exciting fight that my hooked sailfish might just
win the Jacksonville annual Sailfish Pot."
Ross took a photo of Croft and his big sail while
Croft gave the proper sign. Fishermen who enter
the popular Jacksonville "Sailfish Pot" are given a
different signal each year that has to be given when
a sailfish is landed and photographed.
Fortunately Croft's sailfish was the very first
sailfish caught and released during the 2007
Jacksonville Sailfish Pot tournament season. Croft's
prize for catching the first sailfish includes the cash
money left over in the pot after all expenses are
paid for holding the event, including the annual
Sailfish Pot party.
As past winner, Croft is also given the honors of
organizing this year's annual Sailfish Pot tourna-
ment and party.
The Sailfish Pot has been a very popular
Jacksonville fishing tournament since 1959.
Contestants may enter the tournament at any time,
asTrong as no one has caught a winning sailfish that
measures at least 63 inches in length. Entry fee is
$30 per contestant, which also includes the annual
"Sailfish Pot" party,_Contestants must also depart
through the Jacksonville jetties. ..
Annually up to 400 Northeast Florida fishermen
enter the popular event. The annual party includes
steaks, oysters, chicken wings and cold beer.
Sounds like fishermen planned this party.
This year's event is being held at the Ramallah
American Club April 19 beginning at 6:30 p.m. The
address is 3130 Parental Home Road, Jacksonville.
Donations for the 2008 Sailfish Pot are also wel-
come to help fund the popular fishing tournament
If you have something you would like to donate,
which will all be raffled to raise money, contact
Croft at 261-9546.
The biggest win during the 2007 tournament
season for "Bear Caughts" came when the popular
local fishing team won the AT&T Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament Their big king
weighed 48.6 pounds.


The Fernandina Beach-
based fishing team is also off
to a great start in the 2008
Southern Kingfish
Association's Yamaha Pro
Tour. The first event was held
at Key West and Croft, wife
Terri, Ross and Tim Horgan
landed a massive 47.16-pound
king mackerel on the first day
Terry Iacoss of competition. On the final
yA ec nu day of the event; the "Bear
... Caught" fishing team managed
OUTDOORS to-weigh in a:21.27-pound king-
fish for sixth place overall.
Other local kingfish teams that faired well were
the AT&T Fishing Team and Capt. Keniny
Crawford, which took 23rd place with 45.45
pounds, and Fish Dancer placed 24th with 44.32
pounds of "smoking" mackerel.

Jacksonville IFA tourney
A record number of redfish teams entered this
past weekend's IFA Jacksonville Redfish
Tournament, held from Sister's Creek.
Jacksonville's Rob Aldridge and Scott Owens
emerged the winners with 14.16 pounds. One hun-
dred twenty-six redfish teams signed up for the
popular event
Fernandina Beach-based fishing teams that typi-
cally place well experienced difficult times while
fishing their home waters.
Adam Loud and Cliff White finished in 32nd
place with 6.81 pounds; Terry Lacoss and Terry
David Lacoss placed in 33rd within 6.80 pounds; Bill
Pittman and Danny Flynnrplaced 74th with 2.82
pounds. Mike Dotson and Linda Harris, Who I real-
ly thought would do well, found several tournament
boats fishing in their spots after running all the way
from Sister's Creek and placed in 74th. Half of the
redfish teams did not weigh i-ra legal redfish,
mainly due to 20-knQotsouthwest winds,,

The annual black drum fishing tournament.ends
on Sunday. The awards dinner will takeqplate April
23 at Ten Acres beginning at 7:30 p:m. James
Barber continues to lead all entries with a 79.8-
pound black drum.

Yacht Basin. The captain's meeting is mandatory
and begins at 7 p.m. For information, contact Allen

Kid-sized life jackets
The nation's only program
that lends kid-sized life jackets
for free to boaters or anglers is
looking to grow. The BoatU.S
Foundation's Life Jacket Loaner
Program, which offers infant,
toddler and children's life jackets
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-
...enats 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

"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" natibnal 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.
SHowever, 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 (D-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/
gov.
BoatU.S. is the nation's lead-
ing advocate for recreational
boaters with over 650,000 mem-
bers.

As you have probably
noticed by now, this week we
did not put in a picture of
one of our adorable cats or
dogs. We have plenty of them
here of all ages looking for
homes and would love for
you to come and see.
The reason for that is we
would like to take this oppor-
tunity for all of you to get
reacquainted with our shel-
ter. As the story goes, there
was the "Little Engine that
Could." Well, we like to
think of ourselves as "The
Little Shelter that Will." Our
goal to have a wonderful dog
park for all to enjoy has
already started. We broke
ground a few weeks ago and
everyone is hard at work
clearing the land and making
way for the park.
We here at the Humane
Society are a combination of
shelter employees, volun-
teers and board members
that strive to make this little
shelter the best we can. We
invite you to come by and
talk with us. Our Director
Beth Perkins could have
someone show you around


and see what we are doing to
make our animals as com-
fortable as possible and to
help them find that forever
home they want so much.
We can always use dona-
tions of food, toys and, most
of all, we could use a little
sweat equity, and so we are
looking for some volunteers
for our front office and to
help with general mainte-
nance and cleaning.
It is a daily process to
keep the shelter clean and to
get the animals out for a run
in our backyard or better yet,
they love when their volun-
teer friends show up and
take them for a walk. We
have a wonderful volunteer
by the name of Jim Ross that
has done an outstanding job
of coordinating the dog walk-
ing.
We also are in search of a
local artist that would donate
a mural on the front of our
building with dogs and cats
and birds, etc., playing.
You can submit your
drawings and vision to Beth
or Janet at 671 Airport
Road.

Amelia Island is seemingly a separate place, thankfully
untouched. Canopied lanes lead to the graceful and historic downtown,
which is filled with cherished antiques and ripe with Southern
charm, making it the perfect place to idle away a lazy afternoon.


Rolling sand dunes, spattered with sea-oats waving in ocean breezes,
give way to gently breaking waves, linen shorts and bare, sandy feet.
Nestled beneath moss-draped oaks on the way to the Atlantic Ocean,
lies an idyllic neighborhood, The Enclave, a Summer Beach
I evelopment Community. iHere, Mediterranean-style architecture
compl em ents the milder seasons. With exceptional touches, these
two- and three-story townhomes come complete with membership
to the Golf Club of Arelia Island, the seaside Beach Club and the
community pool.
