is bearing up under a $93,000 fund-
ing cut, but needs the funds

Ed Dews told Nassau County
Commissioners during their April
14 meeting.
The county, which must con-
tribute matching funds to the cen-
ter by contract with the Florida
Department of Children and
Families, reduced its contribution
from $268,000 to $175,000 for fiscal


2008.
"We're at a pretty critical junc-
ture, particularly in Northeast
Florida, with behavioral health
care," Dews told the commission.
"There's a lot of things that have
changed in the system that threat-
en the continuity of behavioral
health care."
Dews said state funding for
behavioral health is now suffering
the effects of the state's budget
crunch.,

funding has been flat over the last

Perseverance, creativity key to cook's success

finalist in the national

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
What's the secret ingredient to
winning multiple recipe contests?
According to local resident Susan
Scarborough, all it takes is a pinch
of perseverance and a big dollop of
creativity.
Scarborough, who has won
about 20 recipe and cooking con-
tests since 1999, knows the odds of
winning a recipe contest are much
higher than trying to win the lot-
tery or national sweepstakes. Last
year alone she won five contests,
collecting a total of $6,000 riot
including company-sponsored trips
with travel expenses and spending
money included.
"It's more creativity than being
a good cook," she says. "Because
it's a skill, it's much better than the
lottery."
Contests vary, she says, from
merely entering a recipe to having
a live cook-off. Winning doesn't
come just by chance, either.
Scarborough says it takes a lot of

research to figure out the type of
cooking companies are looking for.
She noticed, for example, that the
winning recipes for the Ocean
Spray contest were sophisticated
and "very New York."
"It's really almost like a part-
time job," says Scarborough.
Scarborough's adventures in
cooking contests began in 1999
when she saw a contest for a trip to
New Orleans on the back of a Dixie
Crystal sugar bag.
She had been longing to visit
New Orleans her whole life, she
says, and entered the contest not
believing she would win. In the

KYA1N SMVli i/IN W,-I.N tV '-l The St. Marys Submarine Museum in St. Marys, Ga., has
items from Russian submarines on display, including artifacts
from the Kursk, the Russian sub lost with all hands in 2000 in
the Barents Sea north of Norway and Russia.


History of

submarines

at museum

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The St. Marys Submarine
Museum in St. Marys, Ga., offers
a glimpse of life below the waves.
The museum's exhibits trace the
history of submarine warfare in
the United States, with a special
emphasis on World War II.
Manager John Crouse said the
mysteries beneath the sea have
always exerted a pull on human


beings.
"Mankind was trying to go
under the water since the B.C.,"
he said. "Initially it was by individ-
ual contraptions. Then in the 1800s,
foreign countries like Russia,
Germany and Britain started get-
ting into it. The United States was
a little slow."
Although the Confederates
used a submarine to sink a war-
ship during the Civil War, the first
official U.S. Navy submarine the
U.S.S. Holland was not commis-
sioned until 1900. Since then,
Crouse said, subs have become an
integral part of naval warfare.
'They're the most stealthy war
system we've got," he said.
"Aircraft carriers can go out and do
what they need to do, and destroy-
ers can do what they need to do,
but submarines can park wherev-


er they want, and nobody will know
they're there."
The museum has a large col-
lection of submarine memorabilia,
from both the U.S. Navy and pri-
vate collectors.
"The Navy items we have on
loan to us are a Type 8 periscope,
a ship control panel, a ballast con-
trol panel, a watertight door and
several other items from a decom-
missioned submarine," Crouse
said. "From individuals we have
hundreds of photos,, models and
miscellaneous artifacts."
The museum also has a library
full of primary source documents
from submarine crews.
"We have probably the largest
collection of paper copies of World
War II patrol reports in the coun-

Raymond E. Carr
Mr. Raymond E. Carr, age 87, of Ocean
Place, Amelia Island, passed away on Saturday
afternoon, April 19, 2008, at his residence.
A native of Springfield, Mass., he had made
Amelia Island his home since
April of 1991. After graduat-
ing from Technical High
School, Class of 1938 in
Springfield, Mass., he contin-
ned his education at the
American International
College, where he graduated
with his Bachelor's Degree in
Accounting in 1942. An accomplished athlete,
Mr. Carr received a partial scholarship for col-
lege and at one time played Minor League base-
ball for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
After completing college, he enlisted in the
U.S. military and upon earning his aviator wings
he was assigned to Fixed Wing B-25 Bomber
Squadron 433, U.S. Marine Corps. During
World War II, he flew many missions in the
South Pacific; he was honorably discharged
from active duty in 1947 and remained enlisted
as a reservist until 1957. In 1947, Mr. Carr
joined the Monarch Life Insurance Company in

until retiring in 1964 at the age of 43.
Upon retiring, Mr. Carr attended to his moth-
er's needs, enjoyed playing golf and watching
the stock market. After his mother's death, he
decided that a warmer climate near the ocean
and golf courses was attractive, thus his move
to Amelia Island. Mr. Carr continued to enjoy
many rounds of golf, many morning coffee
meetings with] his golfing friends at the club-
house and the climate that North Florida
accorded.
He leaves behind a host of close friends that
contributed to his well being throughout his life-

COUNTY Continued from 1A
decade," he said. "We're getting
the same funding we got 10 years
ago, and now that's being cut."
Coupled with state funding
issues, Dews said, are problems
associated with Medicaid reform.
Nassau County became a pilot
county for Medicaid privatization
in September. Since that time,
Dews said, preliminary studies
have shown that poor planning and
implementation are causing health
care providers to take a hit.
Dews said the insurance com-
panies contracted to handle
Medicaid claims were slow in pay-
ing providers for services. In fact,
he said, insurer Access Health
Solutions is currently about $90,000
in arrears to Sutton Place. He also
said the state requirement that
insurers spend 80 percent of
Medicaid payments on direct care
has been removed from contracts
with HMOs.
"There's no oversight by the
state or anyone else at this point
- (to make sure) that these HMOs
spend 80 percent of funds on direct
care," he said.
The effect of the budget cuts
and Medicaid problems has been a
reduction in services and medica-
tion for Sutton Place clients and an
estimated $150,000 reduction in
revenue, he said.
To help make up the shortfall,
Sutton Place has moved from its
old building at 910 S. Eighth St. in
Fernandina Beach to the old IGA
food store building at 463142 SR
200, Yulee, and consolidated some
outlying offices. The projected first-
year savings of the move and con-
solidation total $72,195.
"We expect those savings to
increase in years two and three,"
Dews added.
However, those savings won't
be enough to cover the gap, he
said.


CITY Continued from 1A
increases of 6 percent that were
called for in the original lease agree-
ment.
Coonrod raised several objec-
tions at the April 15 meeting to the
terms and conditions of the new
lease. One problem, she said, was
a paragraph that could terminate
the lease "without cause" with 90
days' notice, essentially making it a
90-day lease. This, she said, would
make it impossible to get a bank
loan for improvements on the prop-
erty.
Coonrod also objected to the
city's plan to extend a new board-
walk across the property, saying it
would force herto-build a new fish-::
house, that would have to,comply
with new construction standards.'
Her solution was to present plans
by local architect John Cotner for a
boardwalk to go around the build-
ing.
Coonrod also said that plans for
construction of a waterfront
park on the south side of the
marina could cut off customer park-
ing.
"If clients can't get to your busi-
ness," she said, "then it would seem
fair that rent would be abated."
Bach noted that the lease was
written in a way to make it "easiest
for the commission to get out of
without cause" and allow the city
considerable flexibility.
Vice Mayor Joe Gerrity com-
mended Bach for looking out for
the city's interest, but added, "It's
not fair to Ms. Coonrod."
Commissioner Ron Sapp said
he also would like some of the
objectionable language taken out.
Bach noted that some wording
could be changed before final
approval, but as far as the board-
walk and abatement of rent,
Coonrod would have to once again

LOVING MEMORY
Michael DeWayne Tucker
Jan. 1,1981 -April 20, 2007
God's Hands
The morning 1 got the call,
I fell against the wall.
My heart began to break,
I believed it was a mistake.
My son had passed away,
early on that day.
Tears began to fall,
as I was still against the wall.
I got down on my knees; and
bowed my heard in sorrow for
this life my son had borrowed.
The voice from above,
said he was truly loved.
God's hands were lifting me up
to look up to the sky,
so I asked the Lord,
"Oh why my son had to die?"
God only takes the best
to give them eternal rest.
God's hands are on us all,
when tears begin to fall.
In loving memory of our son,
Michael DeWayne Tucker.
Love,
Dad
We love you & miss you.
S We willseeyou
again one day.


"The reality of life for us is that
in order for us to do all that, we
must remain a credentialed and
accredited agency," Dews told the
commission. He added that salaries
must remain competitive in order
for Sutton Place to keep the staff
required for accreditation.
"There's no way (the savings)
can offset all of these cuts. If we
can't (maintain funding) we won't
be able to enroll new clients.... That
means the emergency rooms fill
up, and that means the jails fill up.
We really need you to restore this
funding."
Dr. Spence Turner, Sutton Place
medical director, told the commis-
sion that Sutton Place employs the
only full-time psychiatrist and full-
time psychiatric nurse practition-
er in Nassau County.
"If a Sutton Place did not exist,
one would almost have to be invent-
ed or contracted elsewhere to meet
the needs of Nassau County,"
Turner said.
"Do you all do any fundraising?"
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall asked.
"Our board of directors has put
together a fundraiser, and next year
we'll do a major fundraising event,",
Dews said.
Commissioner Mike Boyle
asked if Sutton Place had seen an
increase in clients during the 10
years state mental health funding
had been flat.
"Absolutely," Dews said,
However, behavioral health serv-
ice providers have "an ethical
responsibility" to continue seeing
clients regardless of funding cuts,
he said.
Commissioner Barry Holloway
asked why 80 percent of Sutton
Place's funding went toward
salaries and administrative costs.
Dews said in order to
remain a viable behavioral health
care facility, it needs to offer salaries
competitive enough to bring health


go before the commission if con-
struction appeared to affect her
business.
Up until last year, Coonrod had
been paying the city $321 a month
to lease the building. The rent was
supposed to have been raised 6 per-
cent annually but city officials over-
looked the original lease terms.
Czymbor raised the rent last
August to $1,287 a month, based on
the annual increase written into the
original 1982 lease.

Boyle agreed. "I'm not surprised
that (80 percent) goes toward
salaries and benefits," he said. "This
is a very specialized field, and it's'
illogical to assume you're going to

However, Boyle anticipated

meantime, she finally made her
first trip to the Big Easy.
To her great surprise, she won
the contest with a recipe for
French Quarter tartlets, and
ended up going twice to New
Orleans in the space of three
months.
She also won $400 in the sec-
ond contest she entered for Better
Homes & Gardens with a stuffing
recipe featuring figs and pita
bread.
After that, her winning streak
stalled. Busy with work and four
children, she stopped entering
contests until 2005, when she
entered the national Pillsbury
Bakeoff.
She was a finalist, competing
for a $1 million grand prize with
her chicken salad crescent can-
noli.
Scarborough says that even if
you don't win the grand prize -
which can vary from a few hun-
dred dollars to $1 million the
sponsors will pay for any travel
for yourself and your spouse,
including high-end hotels,
good restaurants and spending
money. She has been on televi-
sion twice.
In 2007 Scarborough won a
trip to Los Angeles from the
Ultimate Recipe Showdown; a trip


to New York City from the Ocean
Spray Cranberry Contest; a trip to
Chicago from IGA grocery stores;
$5,000 in the National Chicken
Contest; and $1,000 from
Kaboose.com for a fast meal
recipe.
She has also won a lifetime
supply of Ball canning products
and a year of free pizza crusts
from Mama Mary's, among other
prizes.
Scarborough noted that,
although individual recipes
are not copyrighted, the rule of
thumb is that there must be at
least three or four significant
changes to a recipe to make it
your own.
Scarborough's next competi-
tion is a national cook-off on
Saturday in South Pittsburg,
Tenn., at the National Cornbread
Festival. Sponsored by Martha
White Flour and Lodge Cast Iron,
the cook-off features 10 finalists
competing to win $5,000 plus pro-
fessional cooking equipment.
Scarborough has entered with her
blackened catfish salad with mini
hushpuppy croutons and lemony
tartar ranch dressing.
Scarborough, owner of
Wallflower Studios, is also an
accomplished painter and creates
art murals, wall finishes and oil
portraits.

New ad campaign urges:



'Come make memories'


As part of a new advertising ini-
tiative starting last week, the
Amelia Island Tourist Development
Council (TDC) board unanimous-
ly approved a new marketing cam-
paign developed and presented by
Paradise Advertising & Marketing.
The campaign is built around a
simple invitation for tourists to
"Come make memories," a state-
ment on which a wide variety of
marketing materials and programs
for Amelia Island is being built.
The "Come make memories"
brand emerged following months
of research and analysis, including
a review of the island's tourism
assets (accommodations, activities,
restaurants, etc.), a study of its com-
petitors, consumer research in the
Atlanta and Jacksonville market,
and more.
The resulting advertising cam-
paign presented to the TDC incor-
porates colors, language and
imagery that evoke favorite travel
memories and encourage visitors to
make new ones on Amelia Island.
The vacation experiences


AMELIA*

F L 0 F

Amelia Island offers are being com-
municated in a strategic, multi-
faceted marketing campaign,
including print, radio and online
advertising, promotions and pub-
licity efforts
"Many of us on island are accus-
tomed to hearing from visitors who
say that their first visit to Amelia
Island was so memorable that they
continue to return again and again
for their vacations," said David
Caples, chair of the TDC Marketing
Committee, in a press release. "It is
part of the island's enduring appeal
and one of the things that makes
Amelia Island a favorite destination
for so many people."
In the November 2007 issue,
Amelia Island was named one of
the Top 10 North American islands


ISLAND

R I' D A

by Condg Nast Traveler's Reader's
Choice Awards. According to
Caples, the "Come make memo-
ries" brand will build on that repu-
tation, directly appealing to a grow-
ing number of visitors who are in
search of a travel experience they
can treasure for a lifetime.
Gil Langley, managing director
of the TDC, said the new marketing
campaign will also allow visitors to
share their travel memories
through new initiatives to be intro-
duced on the destination's new
website, which will be launched
later this year. According to
Langley, the "Come make memo-
ries" brand is now an integral part,
of everything the TDC does to
attract tourists. The new brand will
be introduced in a series of print,
radio and online advertising
throughout 2008.
The Tourism Development
Council is a nine-member board
appointed by the Nassau County
Commission to oversee the mar-
keting of Amelia Island as a tourism
destination. The program is man-
aged under a contract with the
Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach/
Yulee Chamber of Commerce.

Retirement in Nicaragua


thing a little more
adventurous in mind
for her retirement.
As a Fernandina Beach resi-
dent, Cooper had already experi-
enced the quiet, seaside-escape
routine. She worked in the real-
estate industry here until a few
years ago, when she headed out
on a business venture that
segued into retirement.
She now owns a private resi-
dence with servants' quarters
and mountain vistas overlooking
an ancient volcanic crater filled
with spring water. It is her
slice of paradise, Nicaraguan-
style.
Cooper is not the only local
resident with ties to Nicaragua.
For one, a local mortgage bro-
ker she knows has bought into
the Nicaraguan story of retire-
ment nirvana. Low costs, suit-
able health care and affordable
property all add up to a retire-
ment destination viewed by
many as the next Costa Rica.
MSNBC has featured
Nicaragua as one of 'The Best-
Kept Retirement Secrets," and
U.S. News & World Report identi-
fied it as one of the top 10 retire-
ment destinations in the world.
However, there are some
drawbacks to life in a Central
American country. "It's not for
the feint of heart," Cooper says.
There is an element of the "Wild

West" to the
Nicaraguan
lifestyle.
Crime
(mostly
thefts), pol-
lution and
limited
amenities
can present
obstacles to
tourists and
retirees
alike. If you
can stomach
some of the
non-Western
attributes,
it's a pretty


palatable place by Cooper's stan-
dards.
There are even government
benefits afforded to foreign
retirees in Nicaragua, similar to
those offered by Costa Rica in
the 1980s. These mostly involve
tax incentives for foreigners.
Under certain circumstances,
a foreign retiree will not pay
taxes on out-of-country earnings
and can bring into Nicaragua
some household goods and auto-
mobiles without being taxed.
You can also own property there
and still be a citizen of the U.S.
(as long as you leave the coun-
try every 90 days).
Real estate prices are com-
monly 20 to 60 percent less than
in the U.S. Taxes are ridiculous-


ly low, and property insurance is
negligible. For instance, a
$200,000 property at Laguna de
Apoyo (near where Cooper
lives) would entail the following
monthly costs: $200 for utilities,
$100 for a full-time maid, $75 for
cable and phQne, $50 for health
insurance and $200 for gro-
ceries.
Health-care standards
increased dramatically with the
opening of the state-of-the-art
Vivian Pellas Metropolitan
Hospital in Managua. The city of
more than one million people
also has other health care offer-
ings that rival those in the
Western world.
The costs of health care are
eye-opening: $45 for a physi-
cian's house call, $17 for an X-
ray, less than $75 for an emer-
gency room visit and $100 for a
hospital bed for a night.
The final retirement straw for
Cooper is her house, nestled in a
two-acre compound with walls
around it and a view that spans
the mountains, the lake and
neighboring cities and water-
ways.
It's a view "that would cost
me $3 million here (in Florida) -
if I could find it," Cooper says.

Economist: stimulus


may stoke inflation


ORLANDO -The most recent
unemployment figures show
Florida losing more jobs while
some lawmakers propose a sec-
ond round of national stimulus
measures aimed at extending job-
less benefits.
The move has good intentions,
but might do more long-term
harm because of increasing infla-
tion, says a University of Central
Florida economist.
More than 130 million
American households should start
receiving their one-time rebate
check in May, aimed at boosting
the economy. Sean Snaith, direc-
tor of UCF's Institute for
Economic Competitiveness, says
lawmakers should be cautions
moving forward.
"We ought to give the current
policy prescription time to work
on the economy, before rushing
into further stimulus measures,"

"Just like when you're sick, you
wait for the antibiotics to kick in
before heading back to the doc-

environment runs the risk of stok-

In the meantime, Florida's
unemployment rate, alongside the

Rebate check
JASON ALDERMAN
For the News-Leader
Start checking your mailbox
in early May. That's when more
than 130 million Americans should
begin receiving big checks from
Uncle Sam, thanks to the $168 bil-
lion Economic Stimulus Act of
2008 passed by Congress and
signed by the president.
These payments, commonly
referred to as the 2008 tax rebates
(as opposed to the normal tax
refunds you receive when you've
overpaid income tax), typically will
range up to $600 for individuals
and $1,200 for married couples fil-
ing jointly, plus an additional $300
per qualified child under age 17.
There's also good news for peo-
ple who owed no, 2007 federal
oynoe. tatx6 ioks to slat-
miiihute bill addition, those folks
will receive $300 provided they
earned at least $3,000 in 2007 from
wages, self-employment income,
Social Security or disability bene-
fits, certain veterans' benefits or
certain other income sources.
The IRS has posted an infor-
mation page that discusses eligi-
bility, shows payment examples
and answers many commonly
asked questions (click on "Rebate
Questions" at www.irs.gov).
You must file a 2007 federal tax
return in order to receive a rebate,
even if you owe no taxes and
wouldn't ordinarily file.
One caution: Scammers pos-
ing as IRS representatives and
promising to send early rebate
payments (among other bogus
claims) have tricked many unsus-
pecting people into revealing per-
sonal or bank account information
over the phone or via e-mail links
to official-looking forms. The IRS
does not gather such information
by phone or e-mail.

other scams, type "identity theft"

about 1452,000 people are unem,-
ployed out ol a work force of about
9.2 million.
"The impact of the housing
meltdown continues to adversely
affect the state's economy," Snaith
said. "We can expect more job
reports like this one over the next
three to six months."
Going into the summer travel
season, hospitality and leisure
services rank third among
Florida's major industries in job
growth.
"Leisure and tourism remain
one of the few bright spots in
Florida's economy," Snaith said.
"But higher gas prices and wors-
ening conditions in labor markets
put this sector in jeopardy, as
well."

Leading with heart is vital


(Great leadership doesn't require
lofty positions. ILeadership is the
degree to which you are willing to
influence Ihose around you. You do
not need'the title ofl"leader" to be a
leader. Some of the most influen-
tial people of our time did not have
leader titles. The key to great influ-
ence is your values.
What do you value most? To
what extent do you exercise your
influence in places and in ways that
make a difference and are aligned
with your core values? You can't
influence others if you aren't clear
about that. If you allow distractions
at work and at home to influence
your decisions, they can easily side-
track you.
Most organizations get into trou-
ble when the leaders of those organ-
izations begin to compromise their
values.
I know many organizational lead-
ers who say they are committed to
making decisions based on their
core values, but when push comes
to shove, they sacrifice those values
in service of the bottom line. If there

Jlcrr T"Pop" Bishop had settled got sl artcd we havli 't slowed will sign copies of Peter the
into retirement down. Pelican Look Before You Leap ,


"I've always been a homebody.
I never wanted to go anywhere," he
said.
For 10 years, the former direc-
tor of vocational and adult educa-
tion for Nassau district schools
spent his days shrimping, crab-
bing, fishing and gardening at
home along the Crooked River in
south Georgia.
Now, "All that has changed,"
Bishop said. "My yard has sort of
gone to pot."
After his daughter, Gail Bishop
Dugger, said, "Dad, we really need
to write a book," that project
became his priority.
Bishop gets out of the house
and on the road about twice a week
promoting Peter the Pelican Look
Before you Leap, their children's
book published about eight
months ago.
Bishop reluctantly agreed to
the collaboration.
"'Oh, alriglit,'" his daughter
recalls him saying half-heartedly.
"He didn't know I was going to
take it and run with it."
With nearly 5,000 copies sold
and book signings scheduled


Whenever he travels, whether
signing books or not, he stops at
every bookstore to ask for orders.
Book signings help introduce
the public to the book. But, "No
one's going to sell a great number
of books until you get people to
go into the store and ask for the
books," Bishop said. "When that
happens, things are going pretty
good."
The authors have promoted the
book on "all of the west coast of
Florida" from Cedar Key to Naples,
in Central Florida, Georgia,
Alabama, Tennessee and Arkansas.
"Anywhere we can go to sell
our books we travel," Dugger said.
"We wanted to do something
to encourage parents and children
to read together,",she said. The
book includes questions, designed
to help children increase reading
comprehension and listening skills.
The overall story, which also fea-
tures characters Danny the
Dolphin and Ed Egret, teaches the
value of patience and thinking
before you act.
Dugger found Bill Reynolds,
author of the Jettyman series, to

Jacksonville-based company, High
Pitched Hum Publishing, special-
izes in first-time authors.
Inspired by Bishop's real life
experiences with a migrating
brown pelican, the'book features
illustrations by artist Steve
Robertson of Neptune Beach.
After six months in print Peter
Pelican won Best Children's
Illustrated Book 2008 from
Promoting Outstanding Writers,
or POW, a Jacksonville-based arts
organization. The book has
appeared in local and regional
media and will be a featured title at
Much Ado About Books, a
Jacksonville festival.
The literary collaboration "start-
ed out as writing down the stories
I told my children and grandchil-
dren ... writing them down as a
legacy" to the family that now
includes great-grandchildren,
Bishop said.
"My dad's always been a great


storyteller," said Dugger, who lives
in Callahan with her husband. Like
her father, she taught in Nassau
district schools for about 20 years.
She holds a doctorate in educa-
tional leadership and works as an
assistant principal in Camden
County.
"My mom and dad both have
kind of taken us on a journey
through our past," Dugger said of
the family tales she and her Iwo
brothers inherited.
Every year for about eight
years, the real pelican, named
Peter by Bishop, began visiting
Bishop's Georgia dock between
November and April.
"When he arrives he's the only
one that comes right up to the
house and pecks on the window,"
Dugger said.'
Peter responds to Bishop's
calls. He arrived this season in a
flock of about 13 brown pelicans.

becomes murky, "They can't
see the fish." So Bishop feeds the
pelicans frozen pogey fish by the
box.
A pelican "can see about 25
times better than we do," Bishop
said. Brown pelicans are the only
species that dive for their food, he
added. He and Dugger included
two pages of such pelican facts in
the book.
The authors' book tour includes
visits to bookstores and schools. A
few children rank high on Bishop's
"list of unforgettable kids."
One of them, a young girl
named Iacey, "wanted to hug my
neck," he said, and pose for a pho-
tograph with him.
Another "very serious kid"
named Logan commended Bishop.
"Pop, I just want you to know you
did a very, very, very good job on
this book," the six-year old told
him.
One student at a school pres-
entation asked Bishop his age.


"Seventy," Bishop answered.
"And you're still alive?" the stu-
dent responded.
"You just can't put a price on
what these (experiences) are
worth," Bishop said. They are
"moments you wouldn't get other-
wise."
Bishop and Dugger decided to
continue their work together. If
You Want a Friend, You Must Be a
Friend, the second in the five part
series, is due in a few months.
Working together has had ben-
efits for the two.
"I probably appreciate the time
I get to spend with my dad,"
Dugger said. "He's the most won-
derful man I've ever known."
Bishop expresses the same
admiration for his daughter, cred-
iting her with "95 percent of what's
happened after" he wrote the initial
story.
"I never dreamed in my life that
after retirement would look like
this," he said.

t VIEWPOINT/PATRICK KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACH



City land buy costs us too much


T he city's proposal to buy the Perpall
parcel on Sadler Road for $530,000 of tax-
payers' money makes no sense for lots of
reasons.
The puilchase has nothing to do with wetlands.
Proponents of the purchase argue that the action
should be taken in the interest of preserving critical
wetlands. We know that is nonsense because if this
were about preserving wetlands the $530,000 could
be used to procure more than the paltry 2.75 acres
involved in this transaction. So it's about something
other than preserving wetlands.
This is a wasteful public procurement. All public
procurement regimes require their public officials
to insure that prices paid are reasonable. In this
case, the current owner bought the land in 2002 for
$80,000.
The city plans to pay $530,000 or more than 650
percent higher than the prior sale. We have been in
a real estate recession for some time now. Land val-
ues are back to where they were in 2002. This
makes-the Pentagon's $500 hammer procurement
look like a bargain.
This $530,000 is only the first cost. The life cycle
cost is much higher. Based on the purchase price,
the cost to each of our 11,000 city residents is about
$50. But that's what economists call the first cost.
Let's assume that the proposed Hilton was to have
about 75 rooms with an average room rate of only
$100 and an average occupancy of about 60 percent.
Assuming no inflation in rates, let's look at the

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Enough economic development
In the April 16 front-page article "County urged: Be
competitive," Nassau County Economic Development
Board Executive Director (what a handle!) Steve Rieck
deplored that Nassau County spent only $2.93 per
resident on economic development as opposed to
about $104 by Osceola County.
A1A from 1-95 to the Shave Bridge is the main
access to Amelia Island and one of only two. Already
sections of the thoroughfare are reported at 135 per-
cent traffic capacity on the county's concurrency chart
Indeed, it is now rivaling Orange Park's infamous
Blanding Boulevard.
So when do we say we have enough economic
development? Many of us think we have long passed
that point. The economic development fund should be
cut to zero.
While we're at it, since we already have enough vis-
itors flocking here, let's delete "beach" from our town's
name and go back to the original "Fernandina." In
other words, exchange a cheap ploy to attract tourists
for authentic, old-time quaintness.
Bob Awtrey
Fernandina Beach
Less is more
Regarding Coleman Langshaw's April 11 opinion
and an April 18 letter (on ALA traffic), please allow me
an observation. We are not alone, and our ranks are
growing day by day and with each lumbering logging
truck on A1A. Stupid, unsafe and unwanted develop-
ments such as that proposed at Marsh Lakes must not
be allowed, plain and 'simple.
When my wife and I moved to the Fernandina
Beach area from the Washington, D.C., area, we were
excited about the "change." Less is truly more, we
thought! Less traffic, less commercialization, less envi-
ronmental impact. I am realistic enough to realize
that "development" is not a dirty word and that it is nec-
essary to stimulate growth and add value to our already
abundant natural beauty. What it is not, in my humble
opinion, is a license to do dumb things, to allow nar-
row financial interests to always rule and to destroy
what most who live here have valued for so long.
What is so hard to understand about that?
I implore our elected "leaders" to really do .the
people's bidding, and to realize what quality of life
means. Dollars are important; life, happiness and
serenity are priceless.
Steve Shap
Fernandina Beach
Take action
In a letter to the editor published Feb. 4 under the
title "Comic Opera on A1A," I recommended that the
Fernandina Beach Commissioners take a strong stand
to enhance the safety of our citizens on A1A, our pri-
mary connection to the outside world.
I was very pleased to hear that the commissioners
did just that. They voted unanimously at their March
18 meeting to encourage Nassau County
Commissioners to deny any future development that
would result in more traffic on A1A.
Fast forward to the commissioners' April 15 meet-
ing. A representative of the First Coast Metropolitan
Planning Organization made a brief presentation on the
Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) regard-
ing the projects in our area. In response to
Commissioner Ron Sapp's questions concerning widen-
ing A1A in eastern Nassau County, he was told that
nothing is in the near term planning, and the date on
the long-term horizon for anything happening is the


year 2030. Yes, the year 2030! Of course, even the
date of 2030 is elusive because projects in the cur-
rent five-year plan might very likely be pushed further
downstream because money is not, and probably will
not, be available, thereby creating a cascading effect.
I hope our city commissioners took all this to heart,
and will now take the strongest legal action they can
to protect our citizens.

Urbanmyth
When a letter is published in Voice of the People,
particularly on sensitive issues like immigration and
gun control, let's make sure all the facts are valid
("Gun control," April 16). I sought verification of a
Butte, Mont, gun story and found it to be "false." Go
to Snopes.com, and type in Patricia Harrington and this
self-defense Urban Myth will be debunked.
Paul Gmelch
Amelia Island
Never happened
My goodness! Eight column inches devoted to
something guaranteed to get any red-blooded
American excited enough to join the NRA and write to
his congressman. All the trigger words were there:
Second Amendment rights, religious freedom, free
speech, criminal illegal aliens, etc. ("Gun control,"
April 16).
The letter detailed a story about an 11-year-old
Butte, Mont, girl who was alone at home and shot dead
two illegal alien home invaders. It's a great story, if it
were true! However, it's just another urban legend. Do
an Internet search on it for the facts. For those read-


ers who lack the time to search for themsE

Saving our planet
It's not about changing light bulbs anymore!
When Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio alerted us
to the devastating impacts of global warming, many
people simply switched from incandescent light bulbs
to the compact fluorescent variety. Unfortunately, in the
case of global warming, good intentions and switching
light bulbs are not good enough.
The most powerful individual lifestyle solution was
suggested in a 2006 UN report, which found that meat
production accounts for 18 percent of greenhouse gas
emissions. That's more than automobiles!
Moreover, animal agriculture contributes more
pollutants to our waterways than all other human
activities combined. It is also the driving force in
, worldwide deforestation and wildlife habitat destruc-
tion.
The annual observance of Earth Day (Tuesday)
provides an excellent opportunity for every one of us
to help save our planet by dropping animal products
from our diet. More details are available at

VIEWPOINT/PHILLP SCANLAN/AMELIA ISLAND



County on wi

I ould like to provide a viewpoint on Nassau
County's plans, based on recently reported arti-
cles, for funding road improvements.
The county has a number of serious road
problems, including a major section of A1A that has
traffic beyond the carrying capacity on the East Side
of the county and 400 miles of unpaved roads on the
West Side, with no capital improvement plan to
address them.
County representatives have indicated they have nla
plans for using only 11 percent of the impact fee Scanla
funds ($1.65 million of $14.6 million) for needed road
improvements. If these impact fee funds are not to go toI
spent within six'years of the collection date they are county to
to be returned, with interest, to the developers. In expand a
fact, it has been reported that $1.2 million of these Side, wh
fees should have already been refunded under this money w

structure improvements, Nassau
County should have plans to use
100 percent of these impact fees,
not just 11 percent. If they need
to remove county restrictions
that limit the use of these funds,
they should do so. The county
cannot afford to be returning
money to developers, with inter-

the county had hired a lobbyist

longer term, say 20 year, impact
of the purchase. By my estimate
the cost in taxes foregone (real
estate, occupancy taxes and
sales taxes) during that period
is almost $5.3 million. In present
value terms that is the equiva- .
lent of almost $500 per resident.
That's $500 per resident to pre-
vent the development of a new
Keogh hotel!
The cost to the overall com-
munity is higher still. It's no secret that there are a
number of businesses struggling on this island. No
one in retail is getting rich here. Look at the vacan-
cies on Centre Street and along 14th Street and
Sadler.
Ours is largely a tourism-driven market.
Assuming that every room night generates only
another $75/day in sales for incidental expenses
like meals, then the loss of the new facility results in
the business community foregoing at least $1.2 mil-
lion per year in sales. That is economic activity that
is sorely needed.
Sadler is the right place for hotel development.
All of Sadler is a commercial area. It is four lanes
and ideally suited for the kind of development Mr.
Perpall proposed.
The city continues to buy real estate with no
return. The city already owns about $150 million in
assessed value of real estate. Go to the Nassau


County Property Appraiser's website and enter
"City of Fernandina Beach" to see all the property
that is city owned. Who knows what it is really
worth in market terms. But still they continue to
take real estate off the tax rolls and go into the real
estate investment business. Now they are in the
business of preventing development and preventing
lawsuits by buying land. What possible sense does
that make?
So what is the proposed Perpall purchase really
about? It is about the people whose homes abut the
proposed development. It is a NIMBY thing. They
do not want a hotel in their backyards and have
wrapped themselves around the "wetlands" cause to
prevent a development already approved by the St
Johns River Water Management District and the
Corps of Engineers. And our city leadership is pro-
posing a special assessment on the taxpayer equal
to $500 per resident for the purpose of providing
those homeowners with a buffer. The taxpayer gets
to pay for the buffer that the same homeowners
could have bought for themselves six years ago for
15 percent of the cost the city is now proposing to
pay on their behalf.
We should welcome Mr. Perpall and his new
hotel and help him get it built as quickly as possible
so that the community can'participate in the
increased economic activity he will create. Then
let's use the $530,000 to pay off the outstanding
bonds. It's the financially responsible course of
action.

Palma seeks county commission seat


Ranmiro PIalma, entreprenreur,
workingml a and now a stay-at-
hoile daid, intends to seek elec-
lion to the Nassau County
Commission District 5 seat.
A Demnocrlat, he would oppose
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall, a Republican, in the
November election.
Palma moved to Yulee two
years ago from Miami with his wife
Karla and their three children. He
has been a stay-at-home dad for
two years.
"Volunteering and giving back
to the community is very important
to me," Palma said in his campaign
announcement.
He has been a room dad at
Yulee Primary School for two
years. He also helps out at Yulee
Elementary. During 2006-7 he led
the Cub Scouts for Wolves and
Tigers in Yulee. Now he helps out
with Pack 353 in Fernandina
Beach. He assists his wife with her
Daisy Girl Scout Troop by coordi-
nating guest speakers.
"1I believe these fine young boys


an girls are the
future of
America," lhe
said. I believe it
is important to
start them out on-
the right road in
order to help
Palma them become the
----- best they can be."
Palma said he
has had the opportunity of man-
aging Fortune 500 companies. He
was introduced to the family movie
theater business while he was in
grade school, making him busi-
ness savvy, he said. He built his
first theater in Miami at age 26.
Palma and his wife owned a shaved
ice kiosk in Miami Malls, a Dairy
Queen and also started a landscape
company.
Palma also worked for 10 years
with the Florida Department of
Revenue as a tax agent, educating
the public in tax issues while
enforcing the laws of the state.
"My wife, children and I love
this community. I believe that we


need changes in the Nassau
County government," he said.
"Nassau County needs curbside
recycling. This would add $3 a
month to your garbage bill. We
should seek to have term limits
and lbwer dependent health care
cost for public employees. The
sheriff's (employees), firefighters,
clerks and our school board pay a
high cost for dependent health care
insurance. Taxes are high, though
waste is evident with the landfill,
which drained good money at the
rate of $5 million a year. The
money could have been used for
other issues and needs that the
county must address. The sher-
iff's office should be moved out of
the trailers and placed in a state
of the art facility; they deserve
nothing less. Growth is out of con-
trol; it needs to be better managed.
In our two years here, we have
seen explosive growth. The 5-cent
county gas tax that was recently
repealed was needed to maintain
and construct roads for our grow-
ing community. Time is being wast-
ed. Redundant studies of issues
cost the community greatly and
need to cease. These are just some
of the issues I will fight for, if elect-
ed.


the entire county, not just my dis-
trict. I will work hard to build a
road of understanding and com-
passion with the commissioners
along with the citizens.
Infrastructure, county services,
parks for our families, pro-busi-
ness practices and managing
growth. These are just some of the
challenges that face Nassau
County. If honored to serve, I will
do so with honesty and pride."
He said he would work to curb
"excessive growth on A1A,"
"restore the $75,000 which was cut
from the libraries' budget by this
current commission" and use
impact fees for road improve-
ments."
"Your county commission budg-
etwas $149.5 million. Your county
commission collected $1.25 mil-
lion in motor fuel tax. Your county
commission has a fund with over
$14 million from the surtax col-
lected to pay down the landfill. The
tax was never repealed as prom-
ised.
He promised to determine what
has been done with those monies.
Palma encouraged those who
wish to donate or volunteer for his
campaign to contact him at 302-

Spring arrives


No sooner did I
declare that spring is
my favorite season
on Amelia Island. and that I can't
bear to miss a minute of it, it
looks like I'm going to miss it all!
In an unforeseen set of circum-
stances I am headed to
Washington D.C., and on to
Nigeria, and won't be back until it
is hot.
At least in Washington I'll be
able to see some cheery cherry
blossoms and most likely the first
daffodils of the year sights I've
missed since I moved South. But
as for the
wildlife activi-
ties of spring,
the things
that most
excite me,
I'm looking to
youe readers
to keep me
apprised.
Very
Pa t recently my
Fbster- Turley husband
... Bucko and I
heard the
WILD WAYS first frogs of
the season
chirping their spring time greet-
ings. There seemed to be only
two individuals calling back and
forth to one to one another, but
all it takes is two to reestablish a
population. Last year, in our back-
yard and in the backyard pond,
flrogs were noticeably absent and
most of the normally raucous
night sunset choruses were
reduced to silence. I'm not sure
whether our drought did them in,
or the lawn chemicals overly
applied in the neighborhood poi-
soned them or what. Whatever
the reason, frogs were scarce to
absent in our yard, and in other
areas of the county too, so I
heard. So, folks, keep your eyes


and ears out for our spring frogs
and let me know how we fare this
time around.
And then there's the spring-
time invasion of crows, a phe-
nomena I both love and hate. Yes,
it's good that crows are intelli-
gent and resourceful critters,
ever on the lookout for prey to
eat and feed to their young. I
don't begrudge them this. But
every spring I keep ia tally of the
predation they've done on other
animals I enjoy even more than
crows. My days in the salt marsh
at Kayak Amelia in the spring are
full of black looming crows, scan-
ning the flats for nesting clapper
rails, then bringing the eggs back
to the pine tree behind the office
to eat these at their leisure, while
dropping the shells in piles of
death beneath their perch.
In my own backyard crows
.present a problem too in the
springtime. The sentinel crows
are already perched on top of
telephone poles, streetlights and
tall trees, singly scanning their
environment for the first sign of
prey. Our pond turtles emerge in
spring, and walk over to the side
yard, to dig a hole and lay their
eggs. Each year, the crows notice
this activity, and some nests are
plundered before the eggs even
have a chance to dry. Some tur-
tles do make it, and the pond is
always full of turtleheads of many
sizes. Nature does have a bal-
ance, but I always root for the tur-
tles, not the crows.
I'm sure Bucko will keep an
eye on the crows and the rest of
the happenings in our backyard.
If our bluebird house has any tak-
ers this year or Sylvester the
black racer returns this year, and
if the water snakes reappear in
force I know I'll hear about it. My
friends in the state parks will
keep me apprised by e-mail of the
nature happenings here, and I'm

rest of you folks, let me know
what you see too. Did the spoon-
bills return to the Greenway, and
when? Have the 14th Street
ospreys had chicks? Are. there
painted buntings at your feeders?
If any of you see something inter-
esting, tell me about it in e-mails
and I'll try to spread the word.
I know I'll be missing a lot
overseas, in hot, humid, over-
crowded Nigeria. But I'll be sure
to see a lot, too. My project is to

forest assessment of the entire

ed forests to the high plateaus

Niger Delta, and the arid desert
areas of the north. When some-
thing in my travels reminds me of
the wildlife I've left behind, I'll
write some columns and post
them whenever I find e-mail
access.
The world's a big place, but
nature is nature everywhere,
and it's easy to keep in touch
through the Internet. And, soon
enough, I'll be back with you in
Paradise.

'Firewise' in

Nassau Oaks
The rural community of
Nassau Oaks hosted its second
Community Wildfire Awareness
Day on April 12 at the Nassau
Oaks Volunteer Fire Station to
help residents prepare for the
spring wildfire season.
After a barbecue hot dog
lunch, sponsored by Florida's
Forestry Arson Alert Association,
19 participants including repre-
sentatives from the Nassau Oaks
Volunteer Fire Department,
Florida Division of Forestry,
Rayonier Forest Resources and
members of the community met
to discuss the benefits of joining
the Firewise Communities/USA
recognition program.
Firewise is a national program
designed to reduce losses from
wildfire by providing communi-
ties with information, tools and
other resources to help reduce
wildfire risk. As participants in
this program, the community is
also eligible for federal grants to
help remove brush, trim trees or
develop a community education
program.
Nassau Oaks is surrounded
by thousands of acres of wild-
lands and is at high risk for wild-
fires, according to a wildfire risk
assessment completed by the
Florida Division of Forestry in
2006. Residents attending the
event expressed concern about
the dangers of wildfire and seek
to become the second Firewise
Community in North Florida.
Over 300 Firewise Communities
exist nationwide, Lakewood in
Starke is the only other one in
North Florida.
Nassau Oaks residents have
established a Firewise board,
headed by Assistant Chief Craig
Herr. For more information on
this program visit the Firewise
website at www.firewsie.org/usa.


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office, the
city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a crime,
not guilt.
Anyone with information about
criminal activity can contact the
"We Tip" program 1-800-
78CRIME allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.
Attempted robbery
A 21-year-old Fernandina Beach
man suffered a fractured hand after
four men reportedly tried to rob
him of his income tax refund.
Police said the men apparently
knew the victim had just cashed
his check and attempted to rob him
about 1 a.m. Saturday. But accord-
ing to a report of the incident, the
victim stopped cooperating with
police after he submitted an illegi-
ble written statement.
Police say the victim did not pro-
vide any identifying details of the
four men.
According to the report, the vic-
tim said he was walking on South
Eighth Street from a fast-food
restaurant accompanied by four
men he did not know. According to
the victim, they knew he "had a
substantial amount of cash," and
as they were walking one of the
men asked for the money from his
wallet.
When the victim refused, he
said all four men started hitting
him with their fists and attempted
to forcibly take the money, but he
was able to escape. He then went to
Baptist Medical Center Nassau for
treatment to his hand.
The case is still under investi-
gation.

ances were reported stolen from a
Yulee mobile home sales center,
Keith David Home Center on US
17.
The theft was discovered Friday
about 9 a.m. after an employee
started unlocking the doors to the
model homes and noticed one of
doors was already open. Once
inside she found the living room
furniture and a bed had been
stolen. Kitchen appliances, includ-
ing a stove and a refrigerator,
reportedly were stolen from anoth-
er home.
On a third home, a window was
broken but nothing was taken. The
estimated value of the stolen items
is $3,800, according to a police
report of the incident.
Police believe the suspect or
suspects entered the property
through a fence, loaded the items
and left through a front gate by cut-
ting a lock on the gate.
The case is being investigated
by Nassau County detectives.
Evidence eaten
.A Jacksonville man was arrest-
ed Friday for tampering with evi-
dence, a felony, and misdemeanor
possession of marijuana after he
allegedly tried to eat marijuana that
was in his vehicle when he was
stopped by a Nassau County
deputy.
According to police, Enrico
Spencer Roberts, 27, was driving a
1994 Dodge on South Ninth Street
in Fernandina Beach when he
failed to signal that he was turning
onto Jasmine Street, and the officer
initiated a traffic stop. The deputy
said in his report he could smell
marijuana as he approached the
vehicle, and he saw Roberts
"(insert) the marijuana into his
mouth and ... (start to eat) the evi-
dence."
Roberts was arrested and a bag
containing marijuana was found
inside the car. "... The bag's appear-
ance looked as if the plastic had
been chewed open," the report
said.
Roberts has been released from
the Nassau County Jail on bond.

Regina Rainey and Jami Rowland, above, operating room
patient technicians, put Basic Life Support training to good
use. Rainey demonstrates the universal symbol of choking,
below.



Job training was


a real lifesaver


Regina Rainey took the Basic
Life Support course at Baptist
Medical Center Nassau in March
to give her career an edge. Little
did she know it might soon save
her life.
Rainey had worked in the hos-
pital's environmental services
department for just over five
years when she applied for a posi-
tion as operating room patient
technician (OR tech). This job
involves transporting and inter-
acting with patients so knowledge
of basic life support techniques is
required.
Just weeks after completing
the training and starting her new
job, a piece of meat lodged in
Rainey's throat during lunch. She
was choking, couldn't breathe or
speak to ask for help. She began
to panic.
Then, remembering some-
thing from her course, she
crossed her hands over her
throat. This, she'd been taught, is
the universal symbol for chok-
ing. Jami Rowland, lead OR tech
who was sitting nearby, recog-
nized the gesture and sprung into
action, administering a series of
abdominal thrusts known as the
Heimlich maneuver, to clear
Rainey's blocked airway.
. "I thank-God:that. she was
nearby and kn wwh'at"e t ,"
Rainey said.
"Anybody who works here
would have done it," Rowland
said.


It was over almost as quickly
as it began, and the women were
soon back at work caring for
patients in the operating room.
Both credit the training they
receive as Baptist Nassau employ-
I from nu'se' Tefre'a' Cirer,
who stays up-to-date in the latest
Basic Life Support procedures
and makes sure all her students
are well prepared.

Man gets 13 years for



probation violation


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


Leevon Jay Jackson, 20, had a
shot at freedom in October 2005
when he pleaded guilty to acces-
sory to first-degree murder. He was
released from jail, in November
2005 and ordered into the
Inside/Outside program for juve-
nile offenders under court-super-
vised probation.
By now, Jackson could have
completed his two years of com-
munity control and been a free
man, but he was re-arrested for vio-
lating his probation soon after he


left the program.
Thursday, he
pleaded guilty to
violating his pro-
bation and was
sentenced to 13
years in a state
prison with cred-
J it for time
Jackson served.
Jackson was
originally arrest.
ed with his cousin, Donta Alexis
Long, in October 2004 in connec-
tion with the Oct. 23,2004, shooting
death of Kings Ferry teenager
Sheryl Jean Johnson.


Johnson, 17, was shot at her par-
ents' home; her grandmother found
her dead, wrapped in a blanket in
her bedroom, about 10:30 p.m. Oct.
23, 2004. She had been shot in the
head.
Jackson pleaded guilty to acces-
sory to first-degree murder after
the fact. Doc Burgess, director of
the Nassau County division of the
State Attorney's Office at the time,
said all the evidence pointed to
Long as the one who shot Johnson.
ILong pleaded guilty to second-
degree murder last month and was
sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Stay safe grilling outdoors


No longer is summer the
only season to grill that burger,
steak or hot dog, and that's'why
grill safety is more important than
ever
Nassau County Fire Rescue
Professionals Local 3101 urges you
to consider the following safety tips
when cooking outdoors:
Make sure someone tends
the grill at all times.
Never use gasoline to start a
charcoal fire. .
Use charcoal lighter fluid safe-
ly and prudently.Adding more fluid
on hot coals may ignite the stream
of fuel and burn back into the can,
causing it to explode.
Consider using a U.L.
approved electrical starter in place

of lighter fluid.
Place grills away from struc-
tures and combustibles (minimum
15 feet) so they will not tip over
or ignite objects above them.
One of the biggest dangers with
grills is trying to use them on apart-
ment or condominium balconies.
This practice is unsafe and against
the law.
Never bring a grill into the
home. The carbon monoxide pro-
duced by burning charcoal is dan-
gerous, and deadly.
Keep a garden hose or a.
portable fire extinguisher handy in
case fire in the grill gets out of con-
trol. Call 911 immediately.
Keep children and pets away
from fires and grills. It only takes a


second for curiosity to cause # seri-
ous burn. So enforce a "kid-
free zone" of 36 inches around
the grill. Grills continue to give off
heat long after cooking has
stopped.
Though coals may appear to
be cool, always soak them with
water. Coals retain enough heat to
reignite for days after a fire.
If your bag of charcoal
gets wet, leave it in a well-ventilat-
ed area away from the house.
During the drying process sponta-
neous ignition can occur in con-
fined areas.
With a little planning on every-
one's part, this can be a safe
summer cookout season for every-
one.

Museum in St.
Marys, Ga., and

through boxes of

The museum has gained many

who ran a sub museum in

museum all of his artifacts in his
will.
"In 2003 we were bequeathed

our display cases are from Ben's
museum. He had 13 file cabinets -
that's one reason we have those

money for a prominent display at
the Kings Bay Naval Submarine
Base in Kings Bay, Ga.
"In front of Kings Bay sub base
... is the U.S.S. George Bankroft,"
Crouse said. "We raised the money
for that display a little over
$70,000. It's the only full-scale sur-
facing sub on display in the coun-
try."
In addition, the, museum coor-
dinates veterans' events.
"Submarine Veterans Inc., (an
association of) World War II sub
vets, holds monthly meetings
here," Crouse said. "And for the
World War II sub vets, we coordi-
nate the annual World War II Sub
Vet Memorial Service."
Although the Navy has loaned
it some artifacts, the museum is
not affiliated with the military,
Crouse said.
"We're totally independent. We
have to raise 100 percent of our
income through donations and
gifts, and we have a gift shop and
entrance fees," he said. "We have
four (paid) employees and we're
always looking for volunteers.
Currently our major project, foi
the last two years, has been typing
World War II reports into the com-
puter, so we're always looking for
(volunteer) typists to work at
home."
Crouse has good reason to be
passionate about submarines: A
naval veteran, he spent 22 years
on various sub crews.
"Most of my time was out in
Pearl Harbor on fast-attack sub-
marines," he said.
Many of his fellow sub vets visit
the museum and many have con-
tributed artifacts, he said.
Margaret Bramlett, the muse-
Sum's gift shop hostess, came on
board on a temporary basis. A year
later, she's still there. She said
meetingsub vets is part of what
makes the work fascinating.
"It's actually very interesting,
the people that you meet when you
have guys who were in the mili-
tary way back when the stories
that they tell," she said. "It's defi-
nitely a learning experience."
Crouse said submarines have
always held an allure for sailor and
landlubber alike.
"It's different than being on a
destroyer or a carrier. There's the
mystery about what (subs) go out
and do," he said. "For the most
part, the crew members are in
high-tech fields; you may go to two
years of school before you ever
see your submarine. And as
always, since the beginning, there's
the travel, going to foreign ports."
The St. Marys Submarine
Museum is open Tuesday through
Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and
Sunday from 1-5 p.m. For more

SPORTS TALK
JOHN L. CRAWFORD



Playoff mn

would give

the Braves'

no-names

celebrity status
'll admit I only casually
followed the Atlanta
Braves through their first
15 games or so of the
2008 season as college basket-
ball wrapped up.
But I couldn't help but
think of those construction
workers from the movie
"Major League" when I
flipped on the Braves Sunday.
Corky Miller, Ruben Gotay,
Omar Infante, Gregor Blanco.
Who are these (expletive)
guys?
Needless to say, if the
Braves are going to get back
to the postseason, the above
no-names will have to emerge
to complement household
names like Chipper Jones and
John Smoltz.
A playoff run would not
only help fans warm up to
these new guys but would
also help them forget the likes
of Andruw Jones, Rafael
Furcal and Marcus Giles, who
were key cogs in the lineup
the last time Atlanta played
more than 162 games...
Speaking of Chipper Jones,
the former Bolles standout is
on a batting tear to start the
season. As of Sunday, the
switchhitter was batting .455
and was coming off a stretch
of 18 hits in his last 30 at bats.
If Jones can sustain those
numbers through May and
June, an All-Star appearance is
inevitable. If he sustains them
through October, he could be
the first hitter to eclipse the
.400 mark since Ted Williams
accomplished the feat in 1941.
OK, OK. I know he's got
about 140 games left, but a lit-
tle "what if' never hurt any-
one ...
What if Mike Hampton
actually pitched for the money
he has earned since joining
the Braves? That is the $1 mil-
lionr question, both literally
and figuratively speaking ...
University of Tennessee
All-America safety Eric Berry
will reportedly see some time
under center next fall, taking
the "change of pace" role
from WR Gerald Jones.
But I'm sure Volunteers
fans are more excited about
the possibilities that lie ahead
for Jonathan Crompton, who
completed 13-of-20 passes for
266 yards and three touch-
downs to lead the White team
to a 38-16 victory over the
Orange.
Crompton appears to have
the potential of eclipsing any-
thing former starter Eric
Ainge ever did at Tennessee.
If the Vols come.into fall
with a solid one-two punch at
quarterback, a return visit to
Atlanta isn't that farfetched ...
The University of
Nebraska football team drew
the 'second largest spring
crowd ever last weekend, as
80,149 Cornhuskers fans
crossed the turnstiles of
Memorial Stadium on
Saturday to watch the Reds
versus the Whites under new
head coach Bo Pelini.
Reports are that some fans
paid upwards of $100 for a
reserved seat. While those fig-
ures are impressive, they
don't hold the "wow" factor
that they would in, say Miami,
where folks have a myriad of
activities to choose from other
than football (and usually do
judging by the sparse crowds
in South Florida).
Really, what else are
Nebraska fans going to do on
a Saturday.in the spring? Go
see the Fur Trading Museum
in Blair or visit the Mutual of
Omaha headquarters for the
umpteenth time?
The Cornhuskers are not
just the most popular major
sports draw in Nebraska; they
are the only major sports
draw in Nebraska.

Yulee gets wins over Fernandina, West Nassau


Yulee's Hornets (16-10) edged West

their lead to 6-3.
Trailing 6-4, the Warriors scored a run in
the bottom of the seventh inning to cut
Yulee's lead to one, but left two runners on
base.
"Buck struck out the final batter to end
the game," said Will Minor, Yulee High

* "We made too many errors on the day
(six), but we had eight hits and we just kept
battling all game long and never gave up
the lead," Coach Minor said.
Josh Oliver, Cory Reynolds and Minor all
had two hits apiece. Minor and Reynolds
both had a pair of RBIs for Yulee. Marell
had an RBI.
'This was a huge win for this program,"
Coach Minor said. "It was our first district
tournament win in school history and the
first time we've beaten West Nassau. I am
really proud of this group of guys. They
have really come together as a team and bat-
tled hard to win some big games lately. This
being the biggest yet."
Yulee is seeded sixth with a 2-5 district
record while the Warriors were the third
seed at 5-2. The Pirates (No. 4 seed) took on
Trinity Christian (No. 5) in Monday's night-
cap. The championship is at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Yulee capped the regular season with
wins over Fernandina Beach Thursday and
Hawthorne Friday.
Yulee edged FBHS 5-4 Thursday.
"It took a total team effort, good pitching
and timely hitting to outlast the Pirates on
their home field," Coach Minor said. "The
sixth inning was the difference with Yulee
scoring four runs on three hits to put the
Hornets up for good with a three-run lead
going into the bottom of the sixth.
"Fernandina battled back in the bottom
of the inning, but could only score two runs
to narrow the gap to the eventual final score."

Norman, 33, by knockout in a minute and a half.
Vendola is 7-0, all by knockout.
Vendola weighed in at 240 pounds and Norman
was at 234 for the heavyweight bout.
'The promoter called 5-6 days before the fight,"
Vendola said. 'They had a spot available. It was a
last-minute thing. I said OK and flew up there.
'The crowd was great. They loved it. Even if it
was only a minute and 34 seconds."
After his victory, Vendola said the promoter
pursued him.
"I'm considering leaving my job at the end of the
month," Vendola said.
He'll be training and boxing year-round. A title
fight might be just around the corner 'also for
Vendola. "I want that belt," he said.

walked to load the bases. Kubala then had an
RBI single followed by RBIs from Oliver,
Cassidy and McKendree.
"It was an overall great game for the team
after a couple of tough weeks," Coach Minor
said. "I am very proud of these guys for
playing hard and coming out wanting to fin-
ish the regular season strong.
"Fernandina battled all night long, but
we were just able to score one more run to
beat them tonight."
Yulee closed the regular season Friday at
home. Before the game, the Hornets rec-
ognized their seniors.
"On the night set aside to honor the sen-
iors, the seniors helped make sure the night
turned out to be a total success with a 15-5
win over Hawthorne in six innings," Coach
Minor said. 'The seniors (Oliver, McKen-
dree, Reynolds, Marquez Davison, Smith
and Kubala) ended the night with a total of
eight hits, a home run, a double and six
RBIs between them."

YOUTH SOCCER


Amelia Island's U16
Spartans traveled to Ringhaver
Park in Jacksonville Saturday to
play against the Westside
Soccer Club and, for the first
time this season, came home
without a victory, playing
Westside to a 0-0 tie.
Although the Spartans domi-
nated the game both offensively
and defensively, with most of the
game played at their opponent's
end of the field, the Spartan
offense was never able to find
the back of the net. The home
team's swarming defense and
an outstanding performance by
the Westside goalkeeper thwart-
ed attempt after attempt by the
Spartan players to score.
The Spartan defense, howev-
er, earning its fourth straight


shutout, proved to be way too
' much for Westside, severely lim-
iting their access to the Spartan
side of the field and giving them
very few opportunities to shoot.
The Spartans (4-0-1) travel
back to Eagle Harbor in Clay
County Saturday for their final
away game of the season.
The Amelia Island U12
Arsenal soccer team, coached
by Dan McCranie, started off the
2008 spring season with a 2-2
'tie against GIS 201, a 5-2 win
against GAS 101, 4-3 win
against PVA 202 and 2-2 tie
against ACS 222. They contin-
ued their competitive play with a
9-2 win over the CCS Rangers
Saturday.
... Daniel McCranie scored
Arsenal's first goal with a header


off a corner kick by Tom Taylor.
McCranie went on to score two
more goals. Taylor also scored,
three of his own. Teammates
Michael Combs scored two
goals and Carson Van Etta
scored one.
. Erin Joyce, playing a deter-
mined offensive position, had
many great shots on goal while
Rhett Burford made terrific plays
throughout the game. Austin
Meadows also contributed with
several great assists. Taylor
Hamilton and Abel Herrera
played a remarkable defensive
game.
Arsenal continues to show
improvement throughout the
season with their team play and
good attitude. The next game is
Saturday at Amelia Island.

Weekley needed miraculous chips on the 71st and 72nd holes
to edge Emie Els by a stroke to win this tournament. This year,
Weekley took a three-stroke lead into' the final round and
watched it grow by mostly staying trouble-free and seeing competitors
struggle to try and catch up. "It was a lot easier than last year, wasn't it?" a
smiling Weekley said to his group on the 17th hole after his routine par.


h One of the common issues the ama-
teur golfer has that causes a.loss of
/ power in the golf swing is a reverse
pivot. A reverse pivot occurs when
the weight of the golfer moves to their
front foot during the backswing,
which causes the spine to tilt in the
wrong direction. In trying to keep your head still, you
prevent a good shoulder turn from happening as well
as the proper weight shift to the back foot. In order to"
correct a reverse pivot problem, here are a couple of
suggestions. The most important key is to make sure
that your hips stay still on your backswing. You have
to imagine that you are in a drum and your hips do
not touch either side of the drum on the backswing.
The second piece of advice is to get your sternum
directly over your back foot at the top of the back-
swing to ensure the proper weight distribution.

OUTDOORS


Drum bite



still red hot

T he fog was so thick recently, I had to turn
on my boat's GPS and set it on the map-
ping mode to make any headway. After
locating a nearby oyster mud flat, Jim
Maughm and I began casting a variety of redfish
lures to a school of redfish that were also lost in
the fog.
Minutes later, we heard a foghorn signaling for
help. The lost sailors apparent-
ly came across the Tradewinds
fishing boat, which was
anchored at the mouth Bell's
River:
"Wake up inside," the
boaters shouted. "We need
some help. We are totally lost
out here. Hello, is anyone
there?"
The lost boaters continued
Terry Lacoss to go from one boat to the
... .- next, shouting for help while
OUTDOORS announcing their predicament
with their boat's air horn. The
air horn and shouting contin-
ued for some 45 minutes until the fog lifted.
Being lost in the fog is no laughing matter. If
you don't have a GPS on board, you simply feel
helpless and, in many cases, hope that you and
your boat are not run over by a larger boat.
Later that morning, Maughm and I fished for
reds and trout at the St. Marys inlet and came
across another fishing boat, the MissVal.
"How is the fishing?" I asked Capt. Benny
Hendrix.
"The fishing is excellent," Hendrix replied. "The
fish seem to be biting, even with the heavy fog."
The Miss Val fishing charter then held up a big
catch of black drum.
While just a few nights ago, current second-
place leader in the NSFA black drum fishing tour-
nament was enjoying a big black drum bite while
fishing just off the surf at Main Beach.
"Robert Haddock called me on my cell phone
this past Thursday evening and said they had
already caught three nice drum to 50 pounds,"
Hendrix said. "It didn't take Tony Peeples and me
long to load our fishing boat with drum fishing
tackle and blue crabs for bait. In less than 45 min-
utes, we were also catching black drum in the pop-
ular Main Beach fishing hole."
After an hour of fishing, both Hendrix and
Peeples had landed three nice black drum weigh-
ing to 76 pounds. All of the black drum were
caught on half of a blue crash while fishing dead on
the bottom in 15 feet of water.
The following morning, Peeples' 76.60-pound
black drum just missed placing in the money at
Leaders & Sinkers bait shop. In fact, Yancey Smith
recently bumped Jennifer C. Cumberland from
third place with his 76.62-pound black drum.
As of Saturday evening, James Barber is still in
first place with 79.50-pound black drum, Haddock
is second with a 77.72-pound black drum and
Smith is in third with a 76.62-pound black drum.
The local fishing tournament ended Sunday. An
awards dinner is today at 6:30 p.m. at Ten Acres.


James Barber, right, contin-
ues to lead the Nassau Sport
Fishing Association's annual
drum fishing tournament
with his 79.50-pound black
drum. Above, these black
drum fishermen were caught
in a deep fog recently. The
Miss Val charter boat party
didn't mind though, while
enjoying a local druni bite
from the deep waters of
Cumberland Sound. Don
Whitman, below right, recent-
ly weighed in Tony Peeples'
76.60-pound black drum,
which just missed placing in
the money. One of the largest
black drum ever caught from
the St. Marys inlet topped a
set of meat scales at 85
pounds. The massive black
drum was landed by Forest
Evatt on April 25, 1971, left.

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 ip 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.

One year later, lessons from house fire still resonate


t is hard to believe that it has
been a year since our garage
fire. Everything has been put
back together again and we
remember less and less about the
incredible life changing experi-
ence that happened just a year
ago.
Memories came back fast
when I received a recent note
from Mary Yates. In a way it was
a fan letter, but more a thank you
note. It seems the hard lesson we
learned about the spontaneous
combustion that started our fire
had impressed Yates and may
have saved a garage and house.
Over the last year many people
have shared their own personal
experiences with fires resulting


from the
use of
strong
chemicals.
Yates tells
of her
hobby of
l refinishing
furniture
with her
potent
combina-
DickieAnderson tion of tur-
,in,---pentine,
boiled lin-
FROM THE seed oil
PORCH and vine-
gar. She
uses steel wool pads and plenty of
old towels to wipe away the old


goop, as she describes it. That
goop is volatile. Evidently, Yates
was impressed with my descrip-
tion of how an oily rag set our
garage on fire and filled out house
with smoke. After our tales of mis-
fortune, Yates and her husband
removed all potentially flammable
material from their garage.
So one garage saved. The
story continues. Fast forward.
The Yates' daughter, Sarah, just
home from a four-year commit-
ment to the U.S. Air Force, was
busy refinishing some old furni-
ture for her home. When it was
time to clean up, Yates shares, "I
cleverly stored all and sundry
refinishing materials into a bicy-
cle basket just outside the garage


door. And, don't 'ya know it...
when we returned to her house
later that evening, that basket of
towels, etc., was actually smolder-
ing. And such a stench! After
dousing that mess with water for
half an hour, we discovered that
the blanket was a charred mess,
ashes and all."
So some good came of our
very sobering lesson in sponta-
neous combustion. Yes, there are
materials that can begin to burn
all by themselves under certain
conditions.
On the list of candidates are
haystacks (bacterial fermenta-
tion), grain dust, coal and, I kid
you not, pistachio nuts. In our
case it was boiled linseed oil.


. Back on my soapbox. First,
check your smoke alarms. If you
are using potent chemicals read
labels and be sure that any rags
and other materials are properly
disposed of- spread them out flat
to dry or put them in a pail of
water.
Last, support our local fire and
emergency departments. They do
an incredible job. Most people
don't know how good they are
until they hit 911 on the telephone
and learn firsthand that we are
blessed with the best.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your
comments at dickie@dickieander-
son.com. Books are available at
local book and gift stores or on line
at www.dickieanderson.com.

Animal Control and tested,
neutered and vaccinated
under the Cats Angels pro-
gram and now I am ready to
go to my new home. I am a
young, sweet boy who loves
to play. Please call Cats
Angels at 321-2267 if you
would like to see me or the
many other cats available for
adoption. I am told that fos-
ter care moms and dads are
needed very badly. So many
moms and kittens are com-


ing in and for Cats Angels to
provide help, they need peo-
ple to foster the moms and
kittens. Cats Angels will sup-
ply all that is needed, but
you need to provide a room
and TLC. Please stop by the
store or call to sign up.
Our Thrift Store/Adoption
Center, 709 S. Eighth St., is
open Monday-Saturday from
11 a.m. to 5 p.m. We gladly
accept all donations during
business hours. Our volun-
teers will be at River City

ties and puppies available.


If you are caring for ani-
mals and need help getting
them spayed/neutered, call
Spay Nassau at (904) 425-
0005 to qualify for free or
low-cost help. If you don't
qualify, call Cats Angels at
321-2267 to discuss
options.


STARS


Teddy, a very sweet 3- to
4-year-old, 11-pound Yorkie
Terrier mix, has been diag-
nosed with juvenile
cataracts. He is blind in one
eye and losing sight in the
other. We are contacting a
specialist to see if we can
afford to have eye surgery
done. He is a special needs
pup. If you can find it in
your heart to open your


home and heart to Teddy,
you will be rewarded with a
loving friend. To contribute
to his surgery, please make
checks payable to Stars and
note that the donation is for
Teddy.
Save the Animals Rescue

Hi! My name is Baby Bop
and someone found me on
the side of the road with my
brother, Willy Wonka, and my
sisters, Tiny Tina and Dippin
Dots. We were only five weeks
old too young to receive our
first vaccinations. Fortunately,
a very nice family took us all
home and will keep us for a
few weeks until we are old
enough to receive our shots
and get spayed/neutered and
find good homes.
If we didn't have a foster
family, who knows what would
have happened to us. If you
can spare a few weeks to fos-
ter small kittens like us, you
will save a life! f you have
time this spring; consider fos-
tering small kittens or pup-
pies so they can get a chance
too!
My name is Baby Girl and
I am a female black Lab about
2 years old. I was found wan-
dering the streets.
Fortunately, someone turned
me in to Animal Control,
because I was ready to deliver
my puppies. The next day I
gave birth to nine babies.
Thanks to a wonderful foster
family, I was able to care for
my puppies in their spare
bedroom. All my pups found
homes, but now I need a "fur-
ever home." I love people,
especially kids, and I am
housebroken. I promise to be
a good girl.
Nassau County Animal
Care and Control will be open
on Saturday for adoptions
from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Visit us at
PETCO in Yulee on Sunday
from noon to 4 p.m.
