'the shrimping life'


ANGELA DAUGHTRY/NEWS-LEADER
Annie Jones, above, and on
the shrimp boat Annie, above
right, one of three shrimping
boats she owned with her
husband, is the grand mar-
shal for Thursday's annual
Shrimp Festival Pirate
Parade. The Annie, right, won
first prize for decorations at
the 1989 Shrimp Festival,

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Annie Ornz J6nes.knows it's
an honor to be chosen as grand
marshal of the Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival
Born inft ia shriiping family,
Jones accompanied her hus-
band, Chuck, since the 1950s on
many shrimping trips to Fort
Myers, Pascagoula, Texas and
ports around the Gulf of
Mexico.
Although she would bring
supplies and help out on the
docks, Jones said she went off-
shore very few times, preferring
to leave that to the men.
Her husband was not a
shrimper when she met him, but
picked up the skill from her
father, D.A. Cook. The couple
owned a series of three boats
named High Life, Charlie B and
Annie, which won first prize for
decorations at the 1989 Shrimp
Festival.
Jones recalled a frightening
experience in the late '60s when
she and her husband were
shrimping in Tampa Bay.
After a night of shrimping,
they had settled down at a river
mooring in calm waters to sleep
during the day.
Jones says she later pulled
back a curtain and saw white-
caps. The dock was an hour
away and winds were already 80
mph.
They weathered the storm all
night long moored in the river.


* 5 ,


As the waters rose they had to
cut.tree limbs to keep them
from destroying the boat.
The next day, she said, they
tried motoring back to the dock
to see what was there. The
river's current was so strong
that even the big engines were
useless.
The winds of that Category 5
hurricane, known as Camille,
were measured at 190 mph.


Camille devastated most of the,
Mississippi coastline and
brought destruction on sur-
rounding areas.
A lifelong resident of
Nassauville, Jones says she
hopes to bring dignity to the
long history of shrimping in
Fernandina Beach.
"It's all I've ever known," she
said of the shrimping life.

County building



moves forward



with 'heartburn'


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
approved Monday a site plan for a
proposed $2 million building to
house offices and storage space
for the county Building
Department
The proposed 12,830-square-
foot metal structure at the James S.
Page Governmental Complex in
Yulee had stirred controversy
among members of the planning
board and the county commission,
with some questioning the neces-
sity and wisdom of building dur-
ing the current economic slow-
down.
The debate continued at
Monday's commission meeting.
"I still have heartburn with
this," Commissioner Jim B. Higgin-
botham said. "It's not that I deny
the concept of the building. I talked


Marshall Higginbotham

with (Interim Building Official)
Bob Sasser, and he confirmed that
a spatial needs study hasn't been
done in quite some time. ... With
times the way they are, I don't want
to look like we're spending money
haphazardly."
Sasser reminded the board that
the buildingwas proposed in 2005.
At that time, the commission
approved the Building Depart-

County seeks a plan


to spend $15 million


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County Commissioners
asked the county attorney and
county coordinator Thursday to for-
mulate a plan to make'use of near-
ly $15 million in impact fees.
Several departments are inves-
tigating the use of impact fees to
fund projects. However, County
Attorney David Hallman urged cau-
tion.
Improper use of impact fees -
which may be used to fund new
growth only- could open the coun-
ty to litigation, Hallman said. He
added that capital projects should
be carefully researched before the
county dips into the nearly $15 mil-
lion impact fee fund.
"It seems like we dance around
impact fees on this board; we're
scared to death of them,"
Commissioner Barry Holloway
said. "I get constituents calling me
and saying, 'You got $15 million in
impact fees. Why aren't you spend-
ing them?'"
"Nothing I've said should imply
these impact fees are unreachable,"


Hallman said. He
reiterated, how-
ever, that impact
fees could be
spent only on cer-
t~in things.
"If there's any
possible way-we
h, can apply impact
CHolloway fees on capital
projects, we need
to do it,"
Holloway said.
"If we can't use these impact
fees, we need to give them back....
I'd like the county attorney to get
with (County Coordinator Ed)
Sealover and talk about how to use
these impact fees," said
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall. "We need to be proac-
tive. And whatever we do, we need
to do it now."
"I would hope that the thrust of
this meeting (between Sealover and
Hallman) would be to figure out a
way to utilize this 'noney for the
people of this county. That needs to
be number one," Commissioner

In advance of deliberations over
tight budgets, Nassau County
department heads briefed county
commissioners on the state of their
departments at special commission
meetings April 21-22.
This is the second year the com-
mission has held "state of the
departments" meetings.
"I view them to prepare the com-
missioners about the needs and the
ongoing projects of each of the
departments, so when we prepare
the budget we'll have a context in
which to place it," Commissioner
Mike Boyle said Friday. "It was the
idea of Commissioner (Barry)
Holloway, and I think it's an excel-
lent idea. ... Trying to prepare a
budget that serves the needs of the
people is an ongoing challenge
we're facing."
Commissioners were briefed on
the departments' accomplishments
in the last fiscal year and the chal-
lenges expected to arise from budg-
et cuts'.


To offset
shrinking budg-
ets, County
Coordinator Ed
Sealover recom-
mended auditing
telecommunica-
tion and energy
costs and consid-
Boyle ering the pur-
chase, of more
Sfuel-efficient vehi-
cles for the county fleet. Another
money-saving suggestion from
Administrative Sejvices Director
Ted Selby was to consider the elim-
ination of vacant positions.
However, some department heads
asked for the vacancies to be filled,
saying their departments were
understaffed.
"Please realize that of the 18
people we have, we have definite
duties," said Dawn Bostwick,
library director. "...We are stretched
very thin, and that doesn't make
staff happy." Bostwick said the
library had to close branches at

Joseph E."Joe"
Dwinnell Sr.
Mr. Joseph E. "Joe" Dwinnell
Sr., age 82, of Fernandina Beach
passed away on Thursday, April
24, 2(X)8, at Shands Medical Center
Jacksonville.
A native of Minneapolis, Minn.,
he moved to Yulee in July of 1973,
where he resided until moving to
Fernandina this past December.
i Mr. Dwinnell
had served in the
U.S. Navy during
World War II,
from where he
was honorably
discharged in
1946 for which he
received recogni-
tion from Senator Ander Crenshaw
in later years. After serving in the
military he worked for the Bureau
of Engraving in Minneapolis as a
printer until 1972. In 1973, he
moved to Florida, continuing to
work in the printing industry with
University Hospital, and Cauldwell
Printing of Fernandina; as well as
working security with St. uke's
Hospital.
During his and his wife's years
of raising 11 children, Mr Dwinnell
for more than 20 years was active
with his sons and their Boy Scout
endeavors. While on one of many
Boy Scout camping trips he picked
up a piece of wood and began to
carve. This event led to his becom-
ing an accomplished and sought
after wood carver, carving from the
most intricate to large wall carv-
ings. This natural talent allowed
him, as a Boy Scout Counselor with
Troop 339 at Assumption Church in
Richfield, Minn., to help young
Scouts earn their Merit Badges in
wood carving. Mr. Dwinnell had
made hand-carved cradles for
seven of his children, which won
Blue Ribbons and Best of Show
recognition at the Jacksonville and
Nassau County Agricultural Fairs.
After retiring in 1988 he and his
wife purchased a travel trailer and
began traveling throughout the
Northeast and Midwest. From 2001
until 2007 he and his wife lived six
months out of each year in Yulee
and the remaining six months at
Alafia River R.V. Park in Brandon.
During their time in Brandon he
would annually grow a beard and
play Santa Claus at the Postal
Credit Union in Brandon. Mr.
Dwinnell was a member of St.
Michael Catholic Church.
Preceding him in death is a son,
David Ernest Dwinnell, who passe
away in 1987. .

BUILDING Continuted fiom 1A
mcnt's plan to fund the structure
through building permit fees. The
department, a self-supporting
county agency, does not receive
tax dollars.
"The concept of the building
was brought up with board mem-
bers present, and we do have the
minutes from that meeting," he
said.
Sasser also said the depart-
ment had found a summary of a
spatial needs study done several
years ago. Higginbotham asked
how much space that study had
suggested for the department.
"The study said 6,000 to 7,000
(square feet)," Sasser said.
"And you're at 13 (thousand),"
Higginbotham said.
Sasser said the study
addressed only office space. "The
study did not take into account
storage, bathrooms, etc.," he said.
Storage is one of the primary
reasons cited for constructing the
building. Sasser said previously
the Building Department must
retain 10 years of commercial and
residential blueprints, permits and
documentation. "Right now all our
storage space is full," he said.
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall, who supported the
building when it was originally
proposed, said Monday she is now
opposed to it. "I'm going to tell
you why I supported it at the time
and I don't support it now," she
said. "In 2005, it came before the
board to build this building. At
that time, there was all this
growth." The Building
Department was collecting more
in permitting fees than it could
spend, and Marshall said she sup-
ported the building at that time
to make use of the fund.
Now, however, building per-
mits are down about 30 percent,
and Marshall said she could not
support the building given the
current economic climate.
"When we talk about, 'Do we
tighten our belts?,' yes we do,"
she said. "Government cannot be
bigger than the people we gov-
ern. I cannot support this build-
ing."
Commissioner Mike Boyle
went to bat for the Building
Department. He reminded the
other commissioners that the
department would self-fund the
building, with money set aside
specifically for that purpose since
2005. "To at this point suggest
(that the building shouldn't be
built), after we've set this
money aside at the direction of
this commission ... that's not the
kind of management skills
we're trying to instily-P people,,_"g
said. '" 'i '"
Boyle also addressed c'oner s-"
about the building's size. "This is
an opportunity to break the gov-
ernmental strategy of construct-
ing a project that is immediately
outdated and inadequate the day
it opens," he said. "Is there anyone
here who truly believes that we
won't need that extra space in the
future? ... What would be wrong
with being ready for it, when the
money is there, set aside and at
no cost to the taxpayer?" .,
Boyle also reminded the com-
mission that the Building
Department's fund could not be


used for other projects. "If we
don't move ahead (with the build-
ing), here's what will not happen:
Not one foot of road will be paved
with those dollars, not one new
policeman will be hired with those
dollars, not one new fireman will
be hired with those dollars and
not one county department will
believe us when we say, 'We want
you to plan for the future.'"
Marshall, however, remained
adamant. "Here we're going to
build this 13,000-square-foot build-
ing, and then you've got mainte-
nance and you've got utilities,
among other costs. ... When you
say there's no cost to the taxpay-
er, yes there is, because they pay
the maintenance and they pay the
utilities."
Higginbotham reiterated his
concern that a new spatial needs
study be performed. "I'm not
against the building itself, we have
no justification for the size," he
said.
"It looks like we put the cart
before the horse, because the
board (of commissioners) in 2005
approved this," Boyle said. "If
there should have been a spatial
needs study, that was the time."
"If the Board of County
Commissioners in 2005 estab-
lished an ordinance... allowing the
Building Department to save this
money for the building, I feel like
this board is almost bound to pass
this unless we change the ordi-
nance," Commissioner Barry
Holloway added.
Sasser assured the board that
approval of the site plan would not
make the building as currently
planned inevitable. "Not a shov-
elful of dirt would be turned" until
the commission approved con-
struction, he said.
The board finally moved to
approve the building's site plan
and investigate whether the
design currently under consider-
ation is feasible. The site plan was
approved 3-1, with Marshall voting
nay. The commission also voted 3-
1 to conduct a spatial needs study
before committing to construc-
tion, Marshall again voting nay.
The board also voted unani-
mously to instruct County
Coordinator Ed Sealover to inves-
tigate whether reducing the cost
of building permits could help
stimulate the local economy.
Commissioner Tom Branan
did not attend Monday's meeting.

IMPACT Continued from A
Mike Boyle said. "If they can't, I
would reluctantly accept number
two, giving it back."
The commission unanimously
passed a resolution to instruct
Hallman and Sealover to investi-
gate possible uses of the fund.
However, Nassau County Clerk
of Court John 'Crawford said
spending the fees might actually
end up costing money rather than
saving it.
"(An) issue with me is when
you use impact fees to fund
growth, you're required to match
those impact fees, in most cases,
with funding from other sources,"
Crawford said after the meeting.,"It
makes you spend money in some
cases that you might not be able
(to afford) to spend."
Holloway saw it differently. "If
you've got an infrastructure prob-
lem and you need a half-million
dollars, and you already have
$250,000 available, why not take
that other $250,000 from impact
fees and keep the burden off the
citizens?" he said Friday. "There's
no reason to have this money sit-
ting there if we can't use it, but if
we find a way, we should use it....
If we can, let's identify funds we
don't have to match."
The county may have no choice
but to return some of the impact
fees, which must be spent within
six years of assessment or refund-
ed. Crawford warned commis-
sioners nearly a year ago that
some of the fees might need to be
returned.
In a letter to the commission
dated June 20, 2007, Crawford
wrote, "... It appears that you have


BUDGETS Continued from 1A
least 14 times in the last fiscal year
due to understaffing.
Boyle said the county's lost rev-
enue, due largely to property tax
cuts, meant commissioners had
some tough choices to make.
"They'll get even tougher when
the budget comes along," he said
Friday. "These are the dilemmas
'we're facing because of these tax
cuts. We have a governor who said
these tax cuts wouldn't affect
schools. Then I saw on the front
page of (the Friday News- Leader)
that we're getting rid of 35 teach-
ers. I'd say that's an impact."
The school board is making
the cuts, however, because of


not spent within the required time
frame what you already have in
the bank. First, I recommend that
you instruct your staff to immedi-
ately perform a 'staleness' test of
the fees already collected. Then, a
determination should be made as
to whether the Board owes
refunds for funds not expended
during the period allowed under
the law."
"I don't know that they ever did
that (staleness test)," Crawford
said Thursday.
Holloway acknowledges that
some fees may have to be
returned, putting it down to skit-
tishness about dipping into the
fund. However, he said using the
fees could save taxpayer money
through the current period of
budgetary belt-tightening.
"When I ran for office I real-
ized there was a fund here with
millions of dollars," he said Friday.
"But as I said, we sort of danced
around it. Well, now the tune's
stopped. ... We need to use these
funds the best way we can for the
people of this county."
But the economic climate has
Crawford worried that continuing
to charge the fees might hurt
more than it helps. .
"Sometimes we might be better
off without impact fees," he said. "I
know that's a radical statement....
In tough economic times we might
have more businesses coming
online if impact fees didn't exist.
We've loaded the wagon so much
with taxes and fees in the state of
Florida that people are having a
hard time pulling the wagon."
Commissioner Tom Branan did
not attend Thursday's meeting.

declining sales tax revenue due
to the current economic reces-
sion, not because of a constitu-
tional amendment cutting proper-
ty taxes that was approved by
voters earlier this year.
"It truly isn't that complicated
a system," Boyle said. "You assess
taxes to pay for services. If you
stop assessing taxes at a certain
level, it follows that services fall
off. People say, 'Oh, there's a lot of
waste in government. You can
make it up there.' That's true to a
certain extent, and we're doing
that. But to suggest that's all it is,
is a little naive."

Florida House Inn


sues over

ANGELA DAUGI ITRY
News-Leader

The Florida House Inn on April
23 brought a lawsuit against the
city of Fernandina Beach, Code
Enforcement Officer Fred Lindes
and the Code Enforcement Board.
The historic inn at 20-22 S.
Third St. is owned by Joe and
Diane Warwick of Fernandina
Beach.
The suit claims the defendants,
through "harassment, intimidation
and disparate treatment ... have
deprived and are attempting to
deprive Florida House Inn of its
constitutional rights."
The complaint also states that
the city and its police have repeat-
edly failed to enforce a noise ordi-
nance against the Green Turtle, a
neighboring establishment, caus-
ing "severe economic damage" to
the Florida House Inn.
The inn is currently displaying
four small neon signs in its front
windows "in order to advertise its
dwindling business," but the city

claims the inn is violating a neon

against it at $25 a day in 2006, but
was raised to $250 a day in October

The lawsuit also claims "the city
has inconsistently and unequally
enforced the (sign) ordinance."
The Florida House's owners to date
have not paid any of the fines nor
taken the signs from the front win-

The Florida House is asking the
city for monetary as well as other
damages.

Tax rebate checks are in the mail


Most Americans will get a pay
raise beginning this month, albeit
a brief, temporary one.
Tax rebate checks from the
federal government will be com-
ing to a mailbox near you as part
of the massive economic stimulus
package to 130 million U.S.
households. It's essentially free
money.
You must file a tax return to
get the rebate. Families can
receive anywhere from $300 to
$1,200 or more depending on
number of dependents (you
receive an additional $300 per
child). If you earn too much, you
will not receive a check. The
rebates are targeted to those who
need them most middle- and
lower-income families with chil-
dren.


Steve
Nicklas

STEVE'S
MARKET
PLACE


The
checks will
be issued by
the Internal
Revenue
Service
based upon
digits of your
Social
Security
number.
They will not
be paid out
on a first-
come, first-
serve basis.
And gov-
ernment offi-
cials want


you to spend the money, rather
than save it. Take the newfound
money and buy that big-screen


television you've wanted.
The billions of dollars in
rebates will ideally be circulated
through the U.S. economy in an
effort to sidestep a looming
recession and resuscitate a
wheezing job market. There is
also a little in the massive pack-
age for businesses, in the form of
tax incentives.
In Nassau County, educators
will receive the tax rebates, but
they will probably not get much
in the way of true pay increases.
The Nassau County School
District is trimming positions -
including teachers. The move
comes in the wake of declining
tax revenues due to a soft proper-
ty market, and forced reductions
by state legislators. Educators
will be required to do more with


Local school officials have
been frugal with funds in the
past. They built the new Yulee
High School without incurring
any long-term debt, using stock-
piled monies as well as state
funds. This is a credit to
Superintendent John Ruis and the
school board members.
To the contrary, former coun-
ty commissioners incurred a $30
million debt in building the new
courthouse annex and jail. They
also gave lavish pay raises to the
previous county administrator
and attorney, while county work-
ers received a paltry increase.
This is similar to when major
corporations pay top executives
millions of dollars and ignore
lower-level employees.. This even-
tually catches up with you in less-
ened production and weakened
morale.
Other city and county depart-
ments must also be particularly
efficient during these slower
times. The abundant resource
known as the property-tax foun-
tain has been capped. In the past,
it seemed to provide an endless
flow of revenues.
Many of those revenues have
been misused in the past, masked
by a false confidence that there
was always more money if need-
ed. That has changed dramatical-
ly. So enjoy the one-time bonus
from Uncle Sam. And please
spend it for your enjoyment and
the country's benefit.

Tips for spending


that check wisely


JASON ALDERMAN
For the News-Leader
Thanks to the Economic
Stimulus Act of 2008, most tax-
payers will receive an additional
tax rebate check of up to $600
(up to $1,200 for joint filers) -
even those who don't earn
enough to owe federal income
tax.
A survey commissioned by
Visa Inc. found that i-oughly the
same number of people plan to
use their tax refund to pay bills
(43 percent) as to contribute to
savings (45 percent). Others
said they'll use it to make a
major purchase (9 percent) or
pay their rent or mortgage (3
percent).
Although the money may be
burning a hole in your pocket,
here are a few possibilities to
consider before rushing off to
the mall:
Spend wisely, If you want
to reinvest part of your
refund/rebate back into the
economy, consider spending it
on necessities that will save you
money in the long run. For
example, servicing your car
helps it run more efficiently
and last longer. And weather-
proofing your house or buying
energy-efficient appliances
can significantly lower utility
bills.
Pay off debt When you
carry forward credit card bal-
ances, interest charges can real-
ly add up over time. For exam-
ple, making only the minimum


monthly payment (assuming 4
percent) on a $1,000 balance
could add seven years until pay-
off and more than $500 in addi-
tional interest for a card with 18
percent interest assuming you
don't make any new purchases.
Save for emergencies. It's
wise to set aside three to six
months of living expenses to
cover job loss, unexpected med-
ical expenses or other
unplanned events. With interest
rates dropping, shop for deals
on high-yield money market sav-
ings accounts or short-term
CDs at www.bankrate.com.
Save for retirement The
longer you delay, the harder it is
to catch up on retirement sav-
ings. Open or add to an existing
Individual Retirement Account
or 401(k) plan. Practical Money
Skills for Life, Visa's free per-
sonal financial management site,
contains detailed retirement
financial planning information,
including tax ramifications and
interactive retirement savings
calculators (www.practicalmon
eyskills.com/401k).
Finance education. Set
money aside for your children's
or grandchildren's education -
while saving on taxes using a
529 Qualified State Tuition Plan
or Coverdell Education Savings
Account. The U.S. Securities
and-Exchange Commission's
website provides information on
529 plans (www.sec.gov/inves
tor/pubs/intro529.htm) and the
IRS's site explains Coverdell
accounts (www.irs.gov/taxtop
ics/tc310.html).
Fund your vacation. Set
money aside now so you won't
need to rack up debt while on
vacation.
Give to charity. Don't wait
until year's end to make charita-
ble contributions a time when
holiday expenses compete for
available dollars. Try making
part of your donations using tax
refund money.
Sure, it's tempting to blow
your whole stimulus on the lat-
est gadget, but try to invest
most of it in your long-term
future financial security.

AIP boosts recycling efforts


Amelia Island Plantation and
Advanced Disposal Services have
partnered to bring recycling serv-
ices to commercial and residential
entities within the Plantation prop-
erties. The contract was confirmed
on Earth Day, April 22.
This week. 81 recycling con-
tainers will be delivered to
Plantation commercial entities, int
particular the food and beverage
areas, [or the recycling of alu-
minum, steel, plastics and glass.
Amelia Island Plantation already
has a card board recycling program
in place.
On June 1, 925 residential units


will begin receiving recycling col-
lection service at their homes.
Condominiums and villas also will
receive recycling collection serv-
ices utilizing 137 95-gallon, recy-
cling carts located in centralized
areas in which items can be placed

New home for Yulee childcare


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Thanks to a donated portable
building, and rented space in the
building that used to be Yulee
Middle School, YMCA childcare
in Yulee has a new consolidated
home.
The local YMCA provides child-
care for infants up to school age
children, but until recently the loca-
tions were scattered throughout
Yulee.
Now, YMCA childcare in Yulee
is located in one place: 86029 Pages
Dairy Road. The child develop-
ment center, for children who do
not yet attend school, is located in
a large, four-classroom portable
donated by the Nassau County
School Board.
The portable is located on the
same property as the building,
which now rents out space to the
program for the YMCA Pryme
Time after-school childcare pro-
gram.
Before they obtained the new
space, childcare was separated and
held at different school board prop-
erties. At pick-up time, some chil-
dren were at Yulee Primary
School, some at Yulee Elementary
School and some at the Yulee Full
Service School.
Jen Stallings, the YMCA Family
Services coordinator for Nassau
County, said the new space gives
the children and staff a feeling of
"ownership" and keeps school-age
children from feeling like they a&e
still at school even when the school
day ends.
"We're so grateful for this,"
Stallings said. "It's been a big hit,
the kids and the parents both think
it's awesome."
The new space has also allowed
the program to enroll more chil-
dren -the child development cen-
ter once had a waiting list, but now
they have openings for all ages
except infants.


Fees stay the same
Prices for childcare will remain the same at the newly consoli-
i dated YMCA Child Development Center in Yulee.
The registration fee for the child development center in Yulee is
$50, and weekly fees are $135 for infants, $125 for toddlers and
$75 for preschoolers. For the Pryme Time program, the registration
fee is $45 and weekly fees are $77 for before- and after-school!
care, $35 for before-school supervision only and $57 for after-
school care only.
For more information, contact the YMCA at 548-0820 for Pryme
Time and 225-2550 for the child development center.


Stallings said the portable
was donated in February. It need-
ed "a lot of work," but that
didn't dampen the enthusiasm of
YMCA staffers and the building
was ready for the kids in a few
weeks.
"We knew that there was an
opportunity to get the portable,
and we thought it would be great,"
Stallings said. "... The (school
board) superintendent (John
Ruis) is a member of the YMCA


and on our board, and he's always
looking for ways to help us and
has always wanted us to be able to
expand."
Stallings said Linda Morris, the
school board director of elemen-
tary education, was also instru-
mental in making the donation hap-
pen.
To introduce the new space,
which is already being used, the
YMCA is hosting an open house on
May 31 from 10 a.m. until noon,

when open registration for the

Pryme Time, the after school
daycare program, is also available
on Amelia Island after school stu-
dents from kindergarten to fifth
grade can enroll in the program
held at Atlantic Elementary and
Emma Love Harder Elementary,
but infant and preschool care is
available through the YMCA only
in Yulee.
'There are just so many options
on the island (for childcare) and
this is more centrally located,"
Stallings said.
The children are separated
according to age, and Stallings said
the program is educational and fun
for the kids.
"There are games, snacks,
activities," she said. "It's quality
childcare for the family ... there is
education on fitness, nutrition,
exercise (and) healthy snacks."

Consumer


confidence

plummets
UIniversity of Florida
GAINESVILLE Falling hous-
ing prices, tighter credit and rising
gas and food costs caused Florida's
consumer confidence to drop in
April iand surpass its previous 16-
year low recorded earlier this year,
a new University of Florida study
reports. *
Until now the revised March
reading, along with January's index,
had been consumer confidence's
lowest level since December 1991,
said Chris McCarty, director of
UF's Survey Research Center at
the Bureau of Economic and
Business Research.
"Consumer confidence in
Florida is now at the same reces-
sionary levels as it was during the
1990-91 recession," McCarty said.
"Unlike the relatively mild reces-
sion of 2001, the recession of 1990-
91 resulted in a longer time to
recover. This is a likely scenario
for the current economy."
Most economists believe the
economy will pick up by late 2008
or early 2009, but the question
remains whether it will get worse
and follow the pattern of the 1973-
75 recession, he said.
"The causes of lower consumn'er
confidence are well-known to
Floridians," McCarty said. "Falling
housing prices, stricter guidelines
for all forms of credit and rising
gasoline and food prices are hit-
ting consumers all at once. This
has raised the possibility of 'stagfla-
tion,' acircumstance where gross
domestic product retracts while
inflation rises."
Four of the five components that
make up the index fell this month.
The largest decrease was in per-
ceptions of personal finances a year
from now, which fell to a record
low for that component.
Perceptions of U.S. economic con-
ditions over Vice next year, percep-
tion of personal finances now com-
pared with a year ago and
perceptions of U.S. economic con-
ditions over the next five years also
fell. Perceptions as to whether it is
a good time to buy big-ticket con-
sumer items rose.
Nationally, consumer confi-
dence as measured by the Univer-
sity of Michigan has fallen to a 26-
year low, McCarty said. Hardest
hit are low-income households that
have a far more difficult time with
higher energy and food prices, he
said.
"The question on everyone's
mind is how we are going to get out
of this slow economy?" McCarty
said. 'The answer is probably time."

Trucks aren

Being boxed in by three trucks at 65 mph on
the Shave Bridge last week, it was easy to
rant about trucks on A1A. But over the last
few weeks, I've been doing some research
on traffic on A1A and have to admit that I am sur-
prised by what I found.
So, let's call this the '"Idiot's Guide' to Traffic in
East Nassau County."
Over the last five years, traffic has become pro-
gressively worse on the A1A corridor. Think about
it -Wal-Mart, Lowe's, Home Depot, Target, strip
malls, signs for new housing developments all
seemed to pop up overnight. Yet, when the resi-
dents of Nassau County complain about traffic, they
point their fingers in only one direction at the
trucks.
There are letters to the editor complaining about
trucks, initiatives suggesting that trucks be diverted
to different roads, suggestions that the big busi-
nesses here Rayonier, Smurfit-Stone and the Port
of Fernandina find another way to get products in
and out of town.
There is no doubt that there are times when log
trucks, container trucks and delivery trucks clog
our main artery. Heck, I live near one of the mills
and there are days when the trucks are piled up and
I have to wait it out just to get home.. But those days
are few and far between and without those trucks,
Nassau County's economic base would have a dis-
tinctly different feel to it.
So, on to the numbers. We've all heard that the
busiest part of A1A, the stretch between Old
.Nassauville Road and Amelia Island Parkway,
is well over capacity. The road is designed for

Boys & Girls


Clubs pay off


for taxpayers

Florida Boys & Girls Clubs provide our young
people with a safe place to go after school and on
weekends where they can learn while they have
fun. Those rewards can't all be counted in dollars.
But the clubs also save state taxpayers consid-
erable money in deferred juvenile justice and med-
ical costs not spent on youths, according to a
research analysis released this month by Florida
TaxWatch.
That analysis concluded that if positive out-
comes found in participants were replicated
through the statewide population ages 12-17, the
resulting savings would be hundreds of millions of
taxpayer dollars.
Florida TaxWatch, a non-profit, nonpartisan
research institute based in Tallahassee, performed
the study with assistance from MGT of America,
Inc., a consulting firm that is coordinating a coun-
tywide vision study in Nassau.
Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of
FloridaTaxWatch, had this.to-savy."The Florida
Boys & Girls Clubs around' thed'state have a long
and rich history of helping our state's youth
become the leaders of tomorrow. Now, this eco-
nomic impact analysis demonstrates that these
local organizations not only ensure a bright future
for the youth they serve, but also save current and
future taxpayer dollars. This Florida TaxWatch
study shows another important way to improve our
state through cost-avoidance measures."
The study compared the behavioral and. aca-
demic performance of Boys & Girls Club mem-
bers to a peer reference group of students attend-
ing the same Florida public schools and the
statewide student population. The comparison
showed that academic gains in reading and mathe-
matics for local club members were greater than
that those of the peer group and the statewide stu-
dent population. The rate of absenteeism, likeli-
hood of engagement in serious criminal offenses
and the overall dropout rate for Boys & Girls Club
members was significantly lower.
The analysis demonstrated that that if the
statewide dropout rate had been as low as the rate
for the Boys & Girls Club members in the study,
there Would have been an additional 11,293 high
school graduates in the 2005-6 academic year.
The study concludes the economic benefit of
being a club member that graduates high school
and does not become involved in the criminal jus-
tice system is this:
The individual's annual income rises by
$6,935.
The state saves $13,920 in Medicaid and unin-
sured insurance coverage costs per person over
the lifetime of the graduate.
The state saves approximately $214,061 annu-
ally in cost avoidance by not having club members
involved in the justice system.
Our local Boys & Girls Clubs in Yulee and
Fernandina Beach are doing great work for our
young people. It's paying off in more ways than we
knew.

Animal control
I am writing this letter in concern for the lack of ani-
mal control around our communities. As I drive around
I see so many dogs and cats just wandering around.
Even in some yards, I see animals that look like they
haven't been fed for awhile and they look dirty and sick.
Sadly, there are some animals that are dead in the
middle or on the side of the roads.
This just isn't right. I wonder where the owners of
these animals are and why are they not taking care of
them? Why do they even have a pet if they aren't going
to care for it?
I was. a dog owner. We had to put down our beauti-
ful German shepherd due to an illness that was beyond
our control, but we took very good care of him and he
was never left outside. He had the best food and vet care
and he was loved. He gave so much love back to us.
Do some people think that animals have no feelings?
Animals do feel pain and they can be afraid! They want
to be cared for and loved and they will give so much love
and joy back to you if you give them the chance and
treat them right.
I wonder why I have not seen animal control around
our town. I know there are so many animals and it
would be impossible to try and get all these animals help
but something has to be done. It's not just for the ani-
mal's sake but for all of us. When animals join a pack
they can become very vicious. Even the nicest animal
can become mean. There are health issues as well.
I afor--he 4anial owners that don't takecare for
your animals, or those who just don't have the time or
money, please either start taking care of them or give
them away or bring them to the local animal control
office so they can be adopted. I also ask the town to try
and get more animal control on our streets and in our
neighborhoods.

Afterthe fire
On behalf of Nassau County Fire Rescue, please
allow me this opportunity to express my sincere thank.
you to Ms. Dickie Anderson for her continued efforts
to educate those within our community with From the
Porch column, "One year later..." on April 23.
It hardly seems like a year has passed since her har-
rowing experience. We are extremely pleased to pro-
claim that we have'had zero incidents of spontaneous
combustion in Nassau County since her mishap and I
would like to commend her for many articles explain-
ing this topic.
It is an unfortunate truth that life's experience is
always the best teacher. Some people are fortunate
enough not to personally experience the overwhelm-
ing and disrupting effects of fire in the home but are
instructed first-hand by others, whom they respect,
that have suffered the consequences that come with
obtaining the knowledge.
Ms. Anderson, has obviously spent many hours
researching this topic after experiencing the devas-
tating effects from fire in her home. I am sure that the
Yates' family, mother and daughter, are most grateful
for acquiring the data that may have prevented a catas-
trophe. I sincerely hope Ms. Anderson hears of other
stories where a home and personal belongings were
saved from her diligent efforts.
A person's honor is not measured for how tall they


stand, but for how often they bend to help, comfort and
teach others. All of us at Nassau County Fire Rescue
honor Ms. Anderson and appreciate her continuation
of teaching others of the importance of fire safety in the
home.

'Hands and feet of Christ'
Promptly at 9 a.m. last Saturday a small army of
compassionate, generous, willing volunteers repre-
senting five different churches in our area Bridges
Church in Yulee, Yulee Baptist, Amelia Baptist, First
Baptist in Fernandina and Memorial Methodist in
Fernandina arrived at my home in Fernandina for the
purpose of building a ramp/deck on the front so that
I might be able to get out of the house with my new


mobile wheelchair.
They also completely reworked the front yard that
had become a jungle because my brother, who is 63,
can't take care of his 66-year-old crippled brother and
do all the yard work too. What a blessing of Christian
goodness!
A group of men from these churches have recent-
ly grouped themselves together under the title
"Refurbished" to use their talents, which are consid-
erable, to help those in need, like myself. This is cer- .
tainly being "the hands and feet of Christ," and they are
including their children in this service to others.
How can words ever say "thank you!" enough?
Wdi'king' in cooperation with the Barnabas Center,
they supplied all the lumber and did all of the work
using their own tools and talents. Thank you! Thank
you! Thank you! to each and all who gave so generously!

VIEWPOINT/JOAN ALTMAN/OLD TOWN


Old Town: Preserving our heritage


want to thank the city of Fernandina Beach staff
for allowing those living in Old Town and the
citizens of Fernandina Beach an opportunity to
participate in the recent Old Town workshop.
Kevin Sullivan did an excellent job of facilitating the
workshop and Marshall McCrary's professional
assistance was complimentary to his always-unbi-
ased attitude.
, Because Old Town is actually a national treasure
it is appreciated that our city is recognizing it as
such and is willing to assist with its preservation.
There is much to learn and the process will require
dedication and perseverance but at least we as a
community have committed to taking.the first step.
The prospect that some of the overgrown right-of-
ways may be cleared is promising since some prop-
erty owners have far too long been denied access to
their land-locked property. Improving these areas
will contribute to the preservation of the grid and
increase property values. There are many things res-
idents of Old Town can do to contribute to the beau-
tification and preservation of our neighborhood. We
must not rely entirely on the local government to
protect our interests.
Martha Boyle and the Harrisons have demon-
strated this by making the initial effort to beautify
the streets and setting in motion the needed recogni-
tion and preparation for the up coming centennial.


Their plans for the celebration are going to require
assistance from many sources, so I'm sure volun-
teers will be greatly appreciated. This celebration is
about the entire city of Fernandina Beach and its
beginning.
It is especially exhilarating that city staff has
agreed to give consideration to the possibility of
acquiring the privately held water lots abutting Plaza
San Carlos and the west side of Old Town. The area
along the Amelia River may be the last remaining
undeveloped waterfront property in the city. What an
opportunity this could be for the city to develop this
waterfront for public enjoyment. The potential "pub-' '
lic ownership" for such a valuable parcel of green
space would contribute greatly to the charm of the
entire city and .only remove approximately $5,500
from the tax rolls annually. This money could be
regained very quickly with the eco-tourist dollars
generated by adding another historic and environ-
mentally valuable site to the city's public lands.
A boardwalk along the river on Marine Street
could provide children an opportunity to study
another part of the ecosystem that surrounds our
island. A handicap ramp that provides access for
every citizen to enjoy would be an appreciated addi-
tion for those not fortunate enough to own water-
front property or those not physically able to access
an otherwise difficult terrain. A small observation


deck could be included for those interested in fish-
ing or just watching the dolphins with their young as
they make their daily trips past Old Town. Ideas for
utilizing this space are endless.
The city's effort to protect and preserve the Plaza
San Carlos with wooden bollards is welcomed and
much needed. Hopefully the public will be encour-
aged to use it for what it was intended, community
gatherings and peaceful solitude. The Plaza has been
used for many different events such as weddings,
family reunions and memorial services. The sunsets
there rival those in Key West and the uninterrupted
view across the river of the neighboring island land-
scape is priceless.
Once a thorough survey is completed and the
grid is reestablished where years of neglect have
occurred and the streets ending at the waterfront
are once again made accessible, the Spanish plat of
Old Town will once more reflect the unique charac-
ter of other previous Spanish settlements in North
America. This accomplishment should make the city
proud of its community spirit and demonstrate to our
children the importance of preserving our heritage.
I wish to express my gratitude to all those
involved and hope each and everyone who con-
tributes to this effort of preservation will be able to
feel a sense of accomplishment and pride when the
task is completed.

Chasing robins


Jt seenus like I've spent a lot of
time these past few months
chasing robins. Robins, one
of the "first signs offspring"
up north, spend their winters
down here with us, and I've been
trying all winter to get photos of
them.
I'm sure you've seen them this
winter too, huge flocks of them
landing en mass on hollies and
other heavily berried trees
throughout our area. But if you
try to get close to them, off they
swoop away from camera reach
and on to the
next spot.
Finally I got
lucky, on Fort
George
Island, when I
surprised a
group of them
in a puddle on
the road.,
They were so
Pal occupied with
Foster-Turley drinking and
bathing that I
got a chance
WILD WAYS to "shoot"
them, before
they noticed and flew away up
into the trees once again.
Robins intrigue me because
they live two totally different lives
up north and down south. Like
many human snowbirds, they
visit Amelia Island to gather in
groups and feast on delicacies
and to leave their family chores
behind them. For a number of
months they escape the metabol-
ic demands of the cold and the
necessity of providing food to
their offspring. In winter, with us,
they have a life of leisure and
social life. And group living has
its benefits. All it takes isone bird
to spy a good fruiting tree, and all
reap the awards together.
As I write this, in Washington
D.C., I'm seeing the other side of
a robin's life. Spring is here in full
force. The cherry blossoms, daf-
fodils and tulips are at peak
blooming condition and the
robins aie busy staking their ter-
ritories. During the warmer
months, beginning now, robins in
the north get down to the busi-
ness at hand. No longer are there
advantages to group living. When
robins start nesting, laying eggs
and caring for their young, it only
takes two.
"The early bird gets the
worm" is the crux of the situation
for robins in their breeding
range. In our Northern states
robins change fr~m the vegetari'
an, fruit-eating pattern they enjoy
with us and instead seek more
high-energy protein sources like
worms and bugs. It takes a lot of
calories to produce eggs, and
feed chicks, and a diet of fruit
does not cut it for robins. Finding
enough worms and bugs is a soli-
tary occupation.
So in D.C., what I see are sin-
gle robins, spread out across the
Mall's fields of grass amid the
cherry trees. Each robin dutifully
pecks and digs at the ground
seeking prey. If another robin
comes in to share the bounty it is
driven off by the finder. There are


lots of bug's and worms, no doubt,
but these food sources are not
concentrated like berries on a
tree, but aret spread out around
the territory. To feed themselves
and their offspring, the robins
must spread out too. But here in
the north they are as elusive as
ever, especially difficult for me to
"capture" with my little travel
camera.
Many other snowbirds
besides robins live quite different
lifestyles in their breeding range
and in their wintering habitats.
White pelicans are another
extreme example. In the winter
these birds live in our salt marsh
waterways, where they forsake
fresh drinking water for months
and live on the moisture they
extract from their fishy prey. If
you are able to look closely at a
white pelican in Florida, you can
see how they deal with this. Near
their eyes is a salt gland through
which they shed tears of salt to
get rid of more than their kidneys
can handle. But in the summer, in
their breeding grounds inland
and far to the north, they live on
freshwater lakes, happily slurping
clean water to wash down their
food. Other birds also have amaz-
ing adaptations to the different
demands of summer and winter
and the costs of travel in between.
By the time you read this my
robin-chasing days will be over
and I'll be in the humid tropics of
Nigeria chasing photographic


PAT FOSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
In winter, flocks of robins visit Florida to socialize and feast on berries, right. In summer up north, left, robins spread out singly
to catch insects and worms.


prey of a different sort. The sea-
sons in tropical Africa are more
wet and dry than hot and cold,
but here, too, animals adapt to
seasonal changes. If and when I
can, I'll try to use my little cam-
era to find some natural sights to
share with you while I'm gone.
Wish me luck. Even I don't
know what wildlife I'll be chasing
next.

Wilson Neck
burglaries
Nassau County detectives are
investigating another rash of
burglaries in a Yulee.neighbor-
hood. Last week, several vehicles
in Wilson Neck were burglar-
ized.
According to police reports,
none of the seven vehicles bur-
glarized was forced open the sus-
pect or suspects simply entered
the cars by opening unlocked
doors.
A series of footprints near the
crime scene is one of the biggest
clues police have to follow; it is
believed the suspect was wearing
K-Swiss brand sneakers.
Five of the vehicles were
parked at residences on Sara Road;
a vehicle on Lana Road and one on
Derrick Road were also struck.
The burglaries were discovered
the morning of April 23. The bur-
glar did dot bother to close sever-
al of the car doors.
A phone charger, loose change,
a stereo, several CDs and a lunch-
box were among the items report-
ed stolen. In some of the vehicles,
owners could tell someone had
rummaged through but nothing
had been taken.
The burglaries are under inves-
tigation. Detectives are still inves-
tigating similar vehicle burglaries
that happened in two other Yulee
neighborhoods Flora Parke and
Barnwell Road earlier this
month.

Robbery arrest
A Hilliard man is in custody
after he was arrested Thursday
for armed robbery.
. Police believe Joseph Mark
Kraali, 37, robbed a Bryceville store
on April 23, then fled in a vehicle
registered to his wife, leading a
Nassau County deputy on a chase
into Duval County. The chase
stopped at the end of a dead-end
street in Jacksonville, where Kraai
reportedly fled on foot.
He allegedly contacted his wife
the next day and said he wanted to
see his children and then he would
turn himself in to police. Kraai
was arrested on Thursday. On
Monday afternoon, he remained
in custody at the jail in lieu of
$50,002 bond.
According to an employee of
Fouraker Store in Bryceville, Kraai
entered the store about 4:45 p.m.
April 23 and indicated he.had a
gun "by reaching toward the small
of his back." He allegedly told the
cashier to give him money out of
the cash drawer. The victim said he
could not remember whether he
got the money out and gave it to
the suspect or whether the sus-
pect took the money out of the
drawer himself. It was also un-
known how much money the sus-
pect took, but the victim was able
to get the tag number of the get-
away vehicle registered to Kraai's
wife as it drove from the scene.
Kraai also faces charges of flee-
ing br attempting to elude police,
driving with a license that has been
suspended or revoked and resist-
ing arrest without violence.

tional 31 prescriptions throughout

being investigated.

Java Jam

benefit

H EATIH ER A. PERRY
News Leader
Two local causes benefited from
the Java Jam held Saturday at
Starbucks on 14th Street in
Fernandina Beach.
Marianna McIntyre, whose son
Connor is autistic, originally
designed the event to benefit
Autism Speaks, a national organi-
zation working to uncover the caus-
es, prevention, treatment and cure
for autism. When approached to
include First Coast Freedom
Playground in the event, McIntyre
agreed. Assisting in the effort was
lEori Lawrimore, mother of two lit-
tle boys both diagnosed with autism
spectrum disorders.
After watching a segment on
the 'Today Show" about an all-inclu-
sive park in Ohio called Preston's
Hope, local father Aaron Morgan
was sitting on a bench in Central
Park and started thinking about
the children who could not play
with his own little girl.
"What would it take for a child in
a wheelchair to play at our city's
best park?" he wondered. "Our
parks are nice, but not for every-
one. They exclude individuals who
would like to be there. Wheelchairs
don't go through mulch very well."
After .doing some research
online and finding boundlessplay
grounds.org, Morgan contacted
Stefani Busansky of the Freedom
Park Foundation in Tampa arid the
idea to build a similar playground in
Fernandina Beach was born.
Now a local group of interested
individuals is operating under the
foundation to develop First Coast
Freedom Playground, a high-qual-
ity, aesthetically pleasing educa-
tional and accessible park. Anyone,
whether mobility limited or not,
will bc able to enjoy all the activities
at the playground.
"I would like my children to not
see the differences in others,
regardless of their abilities," said
Morgan.
McIntyre is also interested in
promoting acceptance of individu-
als who are different. As the parent
of an autistic child, McIntyre was
looking for a way to benefit area
families living with autism.
"The stress on a family trying to
get diagnosed, establishing serv-
ices for their child, paying for serv-
ices, worrying about the child's
future, making decisions alone
about the child's treatment and
what will happen to them when you
are gone is incredible!" McIntyre
explained.
Mclntyre is aware that many
Nassau County families of children
with autism need financial and ther-
apeutic support. Her own family's
struggle to get answers for their
autistic child is still fresh in her
mind.
"I knew in my heart something
was not right with Connor's devel-
opment, but our doctors insisted
that I was wrong:"
After wasting many important
months trying to get answers, see-
ing several specialists, lots of test-
ing and spending thousands of dol-
lars out of pocket, Connor was
diagnosed as autistic.
Autism Speaks has provided a
wealth of information and help to
the McIntyres and now McIntyre
wants to return the favor by raising
funds to support their continued
help to other families.
"We plan to grow this into a
large annual event," said Mclntyre,
whose sister is a regional director
with Starbucks in Spokane, Wish.
"As a result, I am aware that
Starbucks Coffee Company is a
generously giving corporation,"
said Mclntyre.
"When I asked Jason Frotzheim,
Starbucks store manager on Sadler
Road, to help me with fundraising
... he.jumped at the chance. Jason's
wife is a therapist who works with
these special children, so he under-
stood the need to educate people


immediately," said McIntyre.
Starbucks not only gave space to
the event, but also a $1 donation
for each coffee sold Saturday. There
was a raffle for a free two-night stay
in Ft. La'uderdale and other prizes.

JOHN L. CRAWFORD



The new

DelRio

thrives on it

ggression. There
seemed to be a
lack of it through-
out the short exis-
tence of the Jacksonville
Jaguars until last year when
head coach Jack Del Rio
decided to buck the trend
and part ways with his stag-
nate starting QB Byron
Leftwich without having a
proven guy to replace him.
From the draft to the side-
lines, from former head
coach Tom Coughlin to Del
Rio in his first few seasons,
there always seemed to be
the proverbial restrictor plate
holding back the Jaguars
until Del Rio said "what the
hey" and rolled the dice late
in the 2007 training camp.
The head coach's bravado
transcended personnel deci-
sions and found its way onto
the field last season. Del Rio
had no problem ignoring
conventional wisdom and
going for it on fourth down
and even less of a problem
putting games in the hands
of his greenhorn offensive
coordinator and quarterback.
Raise your hand if you
pumped your fist when QB
David Garrard hit a 25-yard
completion last season and
the book said Fred Taylor or
Maurice Jones-Drew should
have gotten the ball.
Aggression. Fast forward
to Saturday's first round of
the NFL draft and it's evident
that Del Rio and Jacksonville
have no plans to back away
from their newfound
assertive ways.
The Jaguars traded up 18
spots to No. 8, forgoing two
third-round picks and a
fourth round pick to select
former University of Florida
defensive end Derrick
Harvey, undoubtedly produc-
ing more than a handful of
double takes within a fan
base that is used to a "by the
book" mentality.
Get used to it, Jags fans.
The book is out the window
and you should be excited
about it. Your team is fourth
and one yard away from
being a legitimate Super
Bowl contender and your-
coach has no plans to send in
the punt team.
Of course Del Rio still has
ways to go to remedy his
coach speak problem.
'This wasn't one we envi-
sioned," Del Rio said. "We
didn't think we had enough
ammo to get into the top T0.
We weren't going to give up
our whole draft."
What Del Rio was proba-
bly really thinking as he gave
the press something to write
was, "I'll be darned if we
won't have a guy to pressure
Brady the next time we play
the Patriots."
Aggression. It might get
you beat sometimes but it's
so much easier to swallow a
loss when you know your
team pulled out all the stops
instead of getting into a "Ron
Zook-esque" prevent
defense.
Jacksonville's willingness
to give up three early-round
picks tells me they are no
longer content to sit idly and
concede the here and now
for the future.
Whether Harvey turns
into the all-world defensive
end the Jaguars expect him
to be is another story. But
the bottom line is that Del
Rio and company obviously
believed they were a Derrick
Harvey away from a Super
Bowl, so they went and got
him.
Aggression. Del Rio has
instilled it in Jacksonville's
front office. No longer are
the Jaguars on their heels.
If it's true that teams are
built in the image of their
head coach, we can expect to
see a 2008 Jaguars team com-

Williams the first football signee for Yulee High


Hornet pens with Webber

International University


BETH JONES
News-Leader
Tashawn Williams never played
football for Bobby Ramsay, who
was named head football coach at
Yulee High School earlier this year.
But that didn't keep Ramsay from
promoting the senior Hornet.
"He wanted to know what he
could do to help," Williams said.
"He called Webber for me. I appre-
ciate what he did."
Williams is the first Yulee High
School football player to receive
an athletic scholarship. He'll be hit-
ting the gridiron this fall with the
Webber International University
Knights, who call Babson Park
home.
Williams visited Webber and
liked what he saw.
"I liked the atmosphere, the
small-school aspect," Williams said.
"It's not overwhelming plus. it was
in Florida."
Webber is a NAIA division
school just south of Orlando.
Williams sent game film to
Webber, and apparently the coach-
es liked what they saw too.
A versatile player, Williams
logged time at quarterback, tight
end, fullback, defensive end and
outside linebacker.
He made the all-county football
team as a defensive lineman,
recording 66 tackles with a pair of
quarterback sacks and four inter-
ceptions.
Williams said he's proud to be
the first football signee for Yulee.
"I live here," he said. "I want to
represent this community the best
I can."


Williams attended Fernandina
Beach High School his first two
years and transferred his junior
season to the new high school.
He's glad he did.
"We went through a rough sea-
son but they'll always be like fam-
ily to me because I was part of this
team," Williams said.
"He's a tremendous kid," Ram-
say said. "He has a lot bf desire to
play at the next level. I just wish he
wasn't a senior. He was a leader
last year."
Ramsay said Williams may be
the first signee for the Hornets,
but he won't be the last.
"It's a good starting point for
the program," Ramsay said. "I
anticipate more."
One coach did get the oppor-
tunity to watch Williams in action.
'"Tashawn is a great kid. He's a
lot of fun to coach," said Bryan
Libby, quarterbacks coach for
Yulee. "One of the guys you enjoy
coaching. He's a leader. He works
hard."
Libby said Webber will be
pleased with their choice.
"He's the ultimate coach's play-
er," Libby said. "He can fill in where
they need him. He will be a tremen-
dous special teams player for them.
The guy you can plug in anywhere,
anytime, defensively, and give them
good quality reps.
"By the time he's a senior, he'll
be one of the leaders of that football
team."
Libby said, although Williams
played a lot of different positions
for the Hornets last season, he was
a defensive standout.
"He played more defense,


which he loved," Libby said. "If we
asked him to kick extra points, he
would try to figure out a way to do

Wachovia Championship
Defending: Tiger Woods
Total Purse: $6,400,000
Yards: 7,442
.. Par: 72


The Wachovia Championship is
one of the newer events on the
PGA Tour. The championship
first became an official tourna-
ment in 2003. The home
, course, Quail Hollow Club, is


one of the favorites of the PGA Tour, so this event will draw the bigger
names on the tour. David Toms took home the inaugural crown, defeat-
ing the trio of Vijay Singh, Robert Gamez and Brent Geiberger by two
strokes. Last year, Tiger Woods won the Wachovia Championship by
two strokes over Steve Stricker. It was his third TOUR victory of '07 and
his ninth in 12 starts. Tiger will not be able to defend his title this year
due to surgery on his left knee.


Adam Scott
Birthdate: July 16, 1980

Residence: Switzerland
Turned Professional: 2000
World Ranking: 5th
2008 Earnings: $1,540,444

In 2004, the first professional golfer from the
country of India qualified to play on the U.S. PGA
tour. Who was he?


a) Arjun Atwal
b) Arjun Singh


c) Jeev Milka Singh
d) Vivak Bhandari


Answer: a) Arjun Atwal. Atwal earned his PGATour card via a
seventh place finish in Qualifying School in the winter of 2003.


After blowing the three-stroke Tournament Results
1 lead he carried into the final 1st: Adam Scott

Championship, Adam Scott 2nd: Ryan MAoore
.. made a 9-foot birdie putt on Purse: $691,200
No. 18 to force a playoff. 3rd: Bart Bryant
During the playoff, playing the kPurse: $435,200
1,8th hole for the third time in less than an hour, Scott hit his tee
r shot into a fairway bunker to the right. He got his approach shot
to the front of the green, then made a 48-footer by rolling the putt
over two ridges and into the cup. Moore had a chance to force another hole,
but his pin-high putt from the fringe skimmed just past the cup giving Adam
Scott the victory. It was the fourth careerrunner-up finish for Moore.


One of those awkward shots that
can really be mastered with a bit of
Practice is when your shot lies up
against a tree and you can not take
your normal stance. As you may
expect, you will need to turn your
body around and do the opposite of
what you normally do. You want to use irons with the
biggest faces (wedge or 9-iron) and flip it over to
match your flipped stance. As you prepare to make
your swing, the first piece of advice is to not take a
full swing. A short backswing will eliminate any errors
since you are not used to swinging the club this way
(backwards). You also want to abbreviate the follow-
throudh, trying to keep your right arm straight (nor-
mally, you want to keep your left arm straight). Try
this technique out a few times and you should be
able to get a good grasp of it fairly quickly.


Ten days after his knee operation, Tiger Woods was yearning to return to the PGA Tour with-
out having a clear idea of his next event The world number one expected to be sidelined for _ _
between four and six weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in Park City, Utah ~
on April 15. "I'm a little stir crazy," Woods said in his monthly newsletter on Friday. "AIhough I've ~'r,-N
been through this before and understand the need for patience, I don't enjoy sitting around. I really ; "
don't have a timetable for returning to competition. The doctors have said I should be able to play again
in four to six weeks but nothing is certain. I'm just going to do what they tell me to do." Woods will not defend his title
at this week's Wachovia Championship and also will miss the prestigious Players Championship the following week
for the first time in his career. He had been hoping to play in the Memorial tournament starting on May 29 but he has
said that his main focus is on the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in California where he will seek his 14th major title.

Barber takes top honors in 2008 drum tourney


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Hack Johnson is pictured with his son Fowler, who landed a three-foot bonnethead shark. The
bonnethead sharks are "look-a-likes" for the fearsome hammerhead shark.


"I was fishing with my long-
time fishing mentor, Forrest
Evatt, and my father, Vernon
Barber, when a big drumntook
my half crab," James Barber
said. "It was
also our
favorite tide
for catching
big drum
with only a
few hours
remaining of
the falling
tide."
Barber
Terry Lacoss lives next
,, door to
Forrest and
OUTDO$ORS jadine Evatt
and, for sev-
eral fishing seasons now, Forrest
Evatt has been teaching Barber.
the fine art of saltwater fishing,
particularly black drum fishing.
"Everything I have learned
about drum fishing, Forrest
Evatt has taught me," Barber
said. "It's simply amazing what
Forest knows about fishing and
we catch fish every time we go."
That day was no different
and, within a few minutes after
anchoiling Barber's saltwater
boat in the perfect spot, Barber
would catch a fish he would
remember for several fishing
seasons to come.
"It was my first crab out and
my first bite of the morning,"
Barber said. "Using 40-pound
fishing tackle, I set the hook
firmly into the big drum fish and
played the big drum riglt up to
Forrest's landing gaff. Both
Forrest, my father and I knew
that the fish was over 70 pounds,
but we had no idea at the time
that it would actually become the
largest drum of the current black
drum fishing tournament."
Barber carried his large drum
to the Leaders & Sinkers tourna-
ment scale, where his big drum
topped the scales at 79.50
pounds. The popular local fishing
tournament ended April 20.
"I was really nervous right up
to the last minute of the fishing
tournament," Barber said. "Then
I received a phone call from Don

Whitman that my big drum had
won the event. Believe me, Don's
phone call was a huge relief."
Robert Haddock took second-
place honors with a 77.72-pound
black drum, while Yancey Smith
captured third place with his
76.62-pound black drum.
Mike Waltrip was the lucky
"TNT" winner. The tournament
within a tournament pot was
worth $900.
'The weather during the
entire tournament this year was
much worse than last year's
event," Whitman said. "This year
we had only 51 drum weighed in.
During the 2007 drum tourna-
ment, we had over 200 black
drum weighed in simply because
the weather was much better."
The Nassau Sports Fishing
Association hosted this year's
,black drum tournament and held
an awards dinner at Ten Acres
April 23.

Big sharks still plentiful
Cumberland Island has long
been known for attracting one of
the largest shark populations in
the world. The shallow sandbars
located at the southeast corner
of Cumberland Island offer a
continuous food source for a
wide variety of sharks including
tiger, hammerhead, spinner,


nurse, bull, lemon and bonnet-
head.
However, in recent years,
great white sharks have been
showing up in South Georgia and
North Florida waters during a
migration of right whales.
Pregnant right whales migrate
south to warmer waters to give
birth to their calf. In past late
winters and early spring, great
white sharks have also been
showing up, while many believe
they are feeding on the dead calf.
There may be another reason
why the great white sharks are
visiting South Georgia and North
Florida other than to feed on the
blubber-rich baby whales. It's
becoming more common for reef
fishermen to have great white
sharks follow hooked red snap-
per or grouper up to the transom
of their fishing boat. These 10- to
18-foot sharks are attacking the
hooked snapper and grouper
while displaying their awesome
feeding habit.
It might be that the abundant
supply of red snapper at many
offshore reefs are also attracting
.large pelagic sharks, particularly
great white sharks. Could it be
that red snapper and grouper
become desserts for large
sharks when they are not feeding
on their main entr6e, stillborn
right whales?

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-
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 ad 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

Cayman? She's a sweet little
girl around six months old
with lots of love to give. Her
adoption fee is $85, which
covers the spay, rabies, cur-
rent testing and vaccinations.
Juno, Cayman and lots of
little sprouts are ready for
their forever home and can
be found at the Nassau
Humane Society, located at
671 Airport Road in Fernan-
dina Beach. We can also be
reached at 321-1647 or at
nassauhumanesociety.com.

booth by the Palace Saloon!


CATS ANGELS


My name is Sugar! As you
can see, I am a beautiful
Siamese mix female cat in fos-
ter care. Here is what my fos-
ter mom says: "Sugar is a
beautiful two- to three-year-old
Siamese mix female. She has
blue eyes and is champagne
and white with silver tabby
markings, usually referred to,
as Linxpoint. She is very
affectionate and playful. Sugar
needs to be adopted by some-
one who has no other indoor
cats."
Come see the Cats Angels
float in the Shrimp Festival
parade on Thursday at 6 p.m.
We will also have our cats and
kittens at 605 Ash St.


My name is Emily and I am
an eight-week-old female kit-
ten. My mom and I were
found in an abandoned house
and we desperately want find
a home with a loving family. I
am fortunate enough to live in
a foster home until I get
adopted, but my mom is still
at the shelter. My mom is
very special and beautiful.
She is all white, has blue eyes
and she is deaf. She loves
everyone, just like me. We
don't have to go home togeth-
er but we would sure like to
find a family soon. Please call
or visit us this week.
My name is Libby and I am
an adult female Chihuahua
mix. I am housebroken and
love to go for walks on my
leash. I like people a lot and
would love to go home with a
family soon. I do have a light
case of heartworms so I will
need some treatment, and I
promise to love you forever!
Visit the NACAC animals

p.m.
The shelter is in desperate
need of towels and sheets for
the puppies and dogs. If you
can help with gathering old
bedding from churches,
organizations, hotels, etc. the
animals would greatly appre-
ciate a soft bed.
Due to the spring season,
the shelter is full to the brim
with puppies and dogs. If you


are considering adopting an
animal, please rescue a home-
less pet from your local shel-
ter. They are in desperate
need of finding homes soon!

It's a great time to buy a home





in Nassau County!


INTEREST RATES


Today's interest rates are
comparable to 40-year
lows, offering homebuyers
a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity.




REAL ESTATE IS A GREAT
INVESTMENT


Homeownership is a safe, secure way to
build long-term wealth. The national median
price of homes has increased 88 percent in the
last ten years., The number of US households
is expected to increase 15 percent during the
next decade, creating a continued high
demand for housing.,


LARGE INVENTORY


There are nearly 900

residential properties for
sale in Nassau County
We have had a record
inventory of homes
on the market in
recent months, offering
consumers the greatest
choice in decades.




POSITIVE OUTLOOK


Former Federal Reserve Chair Alan
Greenspan recently said that housing
prospects are looking up. "Most of the|
negatives in housing are probably behind us."


DON'T DELAY


Now is a great time to buy a home!
Call your REALTOR or go to amelia-island-realtors.org
to search the Nassau County MLS
for the home of your dreams.



Considering these facts, right now is the best time to buy a home.
