Keep foreclosure



at bay from the



unscrupulous
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
,VNews-Leader


Dan McCranie, a personal
injury attorney in- downtown
Fernandina Beach, was unfamiliar
with real estate law when Willie
Mae Johnson walked into his office
on April 26, 2007.
It was. a Wednesday, and
Johnson had in hand a final judg-
ment notice saying her house
would be sold for foreclosure at
11:30 a.m. May 2, the following
Tuesday.
Johnson, 83 years old and suf-
fering from glaucoma and
cataracts, was nearly blind. She
had owned her home on Division
Street since 1949 and had raised
five children there. She had not
worked since 2001 and was receiv-
ing Social Security payments of
$671 a month.
After talking with Johnson and
going through her documents,
McCranie made an ominous dis-
covery. Johnson had been the
unknowing victim of unscrupulous
lending practices. McCranie
stopped what he was working on
and contacted another attorney,
John Taylor, to-help him write up a
motion to stay foreclosure, which
was filed the next day. A hearing
was held at the courthouse on
Monday, May 1, and the sale of the
house was stopped.
Over time, McCranie found that
Johnson's mortgage lender had

filled out Johnson's loan applica-
tion for her, and falsified it so that
it would appear to underwriters
that she could afford a loan of
$83,000. The broker also lied on
the application about the age of the
house, and falsely lowered the size
of Johnson's outstanding debt. He
inflated her current mortgage rate
on the application from $450 to

Dream come true: YHS student w tvisiltapan


SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER
Shamrin Lullo, center, with her parents, Maureen and Frank
Lullo. Shamrin, a 16-year-old student at Yulee High School,
will spend six weeks this summer in Japan as part of an
exchange program.


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
On a countertop in the kitchen
of her Marsh Lakes home is what
must be one of Shamrin Lullo's
most prized possessions - her new
passport.
And the passport is one of the
only things Lullo and her parents,
Frank and Maureen Lullo, have
had to pay for in order for the 16-
year-old Yulee High School stu-
dent to be able to spend six weeks
in Japan this summer. A passport
and spending money are the only
expenses coming out of the Lullos'
pockets since Shamrin was award-
ed a full scholarship to participate
in the Youth Foundation for
Understanding exchange program.
She is being sponsored by the
Mazda Car Corp. of America.
Lullo applied for the program in
November - a process that includ-
ed'sending school transcripts and
letters of recommendation and a

three-hour interview. She found
out earlier this month she'd not
only been accepted to go to Japan,
but that she'd been given a schol-
arship.
"It's surreal," she said. "I had a
smile plastered on my face the
whole night after I found out... I've
prepared so much, I've wanted it so
long, it has barely set in."
Shamrin has been fascinated
with Asian culture for about five
years. She said it was an interest
that started with an appreciation
for Japanese pop culture and
"Anime" and ended up in her self-


studying the Japanese language
and thinking of a possible career in
international law.
The interest also took over her
bedroom. If you didn't already
know from talking to Shamrin that
she's seriously into Asian culture,
you'd know as soon as you got a
look at her room - it's a challenge
to find a surface that isn't covered
with an Asian-inspired poster, book
or even comforter.
But visiting Japan wasn't just a
pipe dream. It was more than a
year ago when Shamrin, who has
never traveled outside the coun-
try before or been away from her
parents for more than two weeks,
began researching exchange pro-
grams. She doesn't know yet what
part of Japan she will be visiting,
but said she doesn't really have a
preference.
"Anywhere I go is going to be
so new," she said, shrugging.

Teacher will miss 'best job in the world'


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
When asked what she will miss
most about teaching, Ginny White
says, "I'll miss laughing."
White is retiring in June from a
decades-long career teaching tal-
ented and gifted middle school stu-
dents. She has taught at
Fernandina Beach Middle School
since 1992.
White says she never planned
on going into teaching because she
saw what a hard life her mother
had as a teacher.
"I saw how hard my mother
worked, how little she was paid,"
says White. "She didn't receive the
regard that I thought she should."
White eventually came to teach-
ing in a roundabout way, with a
master of arts in psychology from
Washington University in St. Louis,
Mo. - a degree that she said has
been "invaluable."
Her background doing diag-


'When school starts
(next September) I'll be
going somewhere so I
won't think about it.'
GINNY WHITE


nostic testing and tfierapy with chil-
dren and adolescents has helped
her "know what to look for ... and
how to apply things to make them
work."
White says she has enjoyed
teaching gifted students, who
"have a mixture of characteristics
that are endearing and charming,
frustrating and maddening."
One of the principal developers
of the school's gifted program,
White says it is ultimately a "safe
haven" for gifted kids. "This is a
place to express great thinking,"


she says, "and not be apologetic
for being smart."
Noting she has been "con-
sumed with school for 24 years,"
White says she has mixed feelings
about her impending retirement.
"I always felt I had the best job
in the world," she says. "It's hard
for me to let go of this. When
school starts (next September) I'll,
be going somewhere so I won't
think about it."
White says she is "planning to
have some good fun this summer"
traveling to see her sister and on a
few other trips. She also says she
plans to "read all the books about
teaching I never got to."
As to upcoming projects, White
has a consulting job in August in
Keene, N.H., and is also thinking
about developing a local mentoring
program for gifted children.
A party in White's honor was
held Sunday'at St. Peter's Parish
Hall.

Legal aid also


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
While most people are aware
that public defenders are available
to defend those accused of a crime
who cannot afford a lawyer - what
many may not know is that low-
income people facing civil litigation
also have access to free or low-cost
legal help.
There are two Jacksonville-
based organizations that offer legal
assistance to North Florida resi-
dents - including those in Nassau
County - who probably don't have
an extra few thousands of dollars
lying around for legal fees.
Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, or
"JALA," is one of those organiza-
tions. Privately funded and with
about 30 on-staff attorneys and
access to other private attorneys
who do pro bono work, the organi-
zation took nearly 400 cases from
Nassau County in 2007.
' Legal help is available for cases
involving family law, housing,
employment, public benefits, wills
and probate and other civil law
areas. JALA Deputy Director Kim
Martyn said typically family law

And this isn't just going to be
a vacation; she's determined to
achieve two. goals on this trip:
Shamrin said she wants to
immerse herself as much as pos-
sible in the local culture, and she
wants to get a feel for traveling
and whether her current career
goal of international lawwould be
a good fit.
"This will be a really deciding
trip for me," she said. "The only
contact that I really want to have
(with the United States) is my
blog and a few phone calls with
my parents."
While her parents say they are
a bit nervous, this being the first
time their only child will be away
for so long, they're more proud
and excited. Shamrin's dad, Frank
Lullo, said he thinks the "honor-
based society" will be a good fit for
his daughter, who has been a
straight-A student throughout her


entire school career.
"It's so safe, there's virtually
no crime there ... and it's so based
in tradition, so based in honor,"
he said. "I think she'll fit right in,
she does all the right things."
In addition to making straight
A's ("I have to go up and tell her
to stop studying sometimes,"
Frank Lullo said), Shamrin is
involved in several extracurricular
activities at YHS. She'll be
president of the Best Buddies
Club next year and also partici-
pates in the Psychology Club,
Foreign Language Club, Peers
Making Peace and she's been
inducted into the National Honor
Society.
Shamrin will leave June 13 to
spend three days preparing for
the trip in San Jose, Calif., and
then she will fly to Japan. She will

foreclosure due to dishonest lend-
ing practices.
At an informational meeting
May 16, several local lawyers, mort-
gage brokers and real estate agents
met at the courthouse to discuss
the program.
, Drysdale said Nassau County
is "way ahead of the curve" in offer-
ing the free program,
"We are from the days when
mortgages had underwriting
requirements that were much
stricter," said Drysdale. "Now
lenders call people in to sign on
the dotted line ... they're doing
things wrong; we just have to find
them."
Drysdale said one of the other
problems is that loans are sold to
other mortgage companies, and
brokers on the original loan don't
have to take responsibility for
repayment. Because loans have
been sold, she said, other compa-
nies are servicing them, and there
can sometimes be four or five dif-
ferent players involved. It is often
difficult to follow the chain of title
for these loans.
"The lender could care less if
(Willie Mae Johnson) made mini-
mum payments because they were
selling loans," said Drysdale.


McCranie said the free foreclo-
sure program would be "a primer
on what attorneys should look for,
and what to look at."
As far as Johnson's case,
McCranie said attorneys for the
mortgage company want to
mediate a settlement, and he is
looking into getting her a reverse
mortgage as a source of income.
McCranie said that he and Taylor
have put in close to 100 hours of
their - time settling Johnson's
case.
There are now at least 15 local


attorneys on board with the pro-
gram, McCranie said, a large num-
ber of them specializing in real
estate. Another informational meet-
ing for attorneys has been set up for
the first week of June.
"I think quite frankly they've
seen our enthusiasm and want to be
part of it," he said. "There's a hell
of a lot you can do with foreclo-
sures."
For information on free fore-
closure advice, contact McCranie at
261-6838.

$778 to make it appear she could
afford a higher payment, and lied
about the value of her home, saying
it was worth $225,000 when it was
assessed at $76,000. The applica-
tion also stated falsely that Johnson
received rental income.
Why did Johnson sign those
papers to re-mortgage her house?
She was hoping to get $5,000 cash
out of the deal to bury her daugh-
ter, who had died of cancer.
Johnson never received that
$5,000. Her interest rate increased
from 5.99 percent for the previous
mortgage to a possible rate of 17.54
percent. Her monthly payment,
before insurance or taxes, rose to
more than she was getting from
Social Security.
McCranie eventually sued the
mortgage company and the broker
.who falsified the documents.
Calling foreclosure "the most
impersonal, awful, most traumatic
thing that can happen to someone,"
McCranie wanted to do something
to prevent others like Willie Mae

losing their homes.

0 . 1 ' I 11, '11,' 1.1 W, I I.-. t . , .- 1 11 ll :


Jacksonville Area Legal Aid would like to
thank everyone who attended the Sixth
Annual Fair Housing Symposium on
Saturday, April 26th. The event was a
huge success! As April is Fair Housing
Month and 2008 marks the 40th
Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, the
Symposium was a perfect occasion to
remind people about their rights to be
free of discrimination. Fair Housing
information was distributed, furniture.
was raffled away, and free lunch was
served! There were a variety of work-
shops covering topics ranging from
predatory lending to an update on Fair
Housing laws. A formal lunch was
provided free of charge to those who


registered early. To publicize the event, a
phone bank took place on April 23rd on
a local television station to discuss Fair
Housing issues and to encourage atten-
dance at the main event on April 26th.

We'd like to thank the Jacksonville
Human Rights Commission for all of
their hard work and planning leading up
to the Symposium. In addition, we'd like
to thank the U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD) because
the success of events such as the Fair
Housing Symposium would not be possi-
ble without their generous support. We
look forward to seeing everyone at the
Symposium next April!

T he U.S. flags adorning
the graves of the mili-
tary veterans here are
calling cards of
American Legion Post 54.

ple hundred members of the local

our country. They place more
than 1,000
flags in the
area.

MARKET Fernandina
PLACE Beach. The
only thing
standing in their way is $27,000 in
permit fees.
It might as well be the Delta
Force. They just don't have the
resources.
You see, the American Legion'
members have been diligently
raising funds for a new building
the past five or so years. They


held cookouts and raffles and
other fundraising activities.
Here recently, they purchased
the new pre-manufactured build-
ing that is to serve as their new
headquarters. Their headquar-
ters of many decades - the old
log cabin along Atlantic Avenue -
has fallen into disrepair. So much
so that the city has essentially
condemned the building as being
unsafe.
American Legion members
had their game plan. Raise
enough money to buy the new
building (which was just deliv-
ered to the site), work with city
officials to do what they needed
to open it for use and relocate
operations from the old log cabin
to there.
It was all on target until mem-
bers were informed of the stick-
er-shock proportion of permit
fees. After members picked
themselves off the floor, they
realized they should either ask
for the fees to be waived, or start
another round of fundraising.
American Legion members
are expected to appear in uniform
and in unity for the city commis-
sion meeting in early June. They
will ask the city to be excused ,
from the permit fees, so they can
get their new and vacant building
open as quickly as possible.

Building permits rise



for 2nd month in a row


Data compiled by the
Northeast Florida Builders
Association from city and county
building departments in Clay,
Duval, Nassau and St. Johns coun-
ties show permits issued in April
rose 14.7 percent from a month
earlier.
There were 593 building per-
mits in the four counties, up from
517 issued in March.
Permits were up 91 percent in
Nassau County, which nearly dou-
bled the number of permits issued


from 23 in March to 44 in April.
In Nassau County, 125 permits
have been issued in the first four
months of 2008, compared to 536
in the same period in 2007 and
865 in the first four months of
2006.
Permits issued in April were
up in Duval, Nassau and St. Johns
counties but down in Clay County,
which reported 30, down from
March's 37.
The number of permits issued
in April was up 10 percent in Duval


County, to 384 compared to 349
in March. Permits rose 25 percent
in St. Johns County from March's
108.
The total number of permits
issued a year ago in April 2007
was 796, compared to 593 issued
the first four months of 2008 in
the four-county area.
The permit activity report is
updated the first working day after
the end of the month by the

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 2008/NEWS-LEADER


Here's how to make a conserve


The News-Leader featured the
two left-wing opinions on its edito-
rial pages May 16 that offer insight
into the illogical thought process of
the liberal mindset.
"What Makes a Liberal
Unhappy?" in Opinions from the
Goldfish, a periodic rant penned
by harmless local, left-wing pundit
Coleman Langshaw, proves once
again how eager he is to rush into
a mental shootout with all cham-
bers empty. Langshaw futilely
attempts to debunlk the opinion of
a May 7 News-Leader column by
Tom Purcell and an economics
professor's study, while repeatedly
firing blanks with such fact-filled
arguments of "what a crock" and
the time-worn liberal taglines of
"Big Brother spying on me," "Big
Oil", "conservatives can lie to your
face" and - well, you get the pic-
ture.
The other, an unhinged diatribe
against President George W.
Bush in the form of a letter
("Legacy") by retired local school
teacher J. Charles Cripps, was an
obvious plea for help from what
appears to be either a very, very
unhappy liberal, someone who has
failed to consistently take their


medication or both.
As angry and vitriolic as it was,
Cripps is at least consistent in his
pretense of oppression by
President Bush. On May 28,2003,
the News-Leader published a letter
from the furious schoolteacher
blaming GWB for his son's failure
to land a summer job to earn
money for "fun things," complain-
ing irrationally at that time that
Bush's tax cut only helped Iraqis,
Chinese and Central Americans,
etc. Apparently the Iraqi kid next
door must have mowed every-
body's yard in Fernandina Beach
the past five years.
Both writers can't seem to help
but project their own malevolence
onto others. Apparently they are
so filled with anger, hatred and irra-
tional thoughts that they don't real-
ize that their hysterical screaming
and chaotic and silly word jumbles
serve only to advance the right-
wing agenda, making, cohserva-
tives happy, serving to explode
Langshaw's own opinion, thus mak-
ing him the source of his own
unhappiness. And shouldn't both
writers at least consider the public
embarrassment that must be suf-
fered by their families when their


drivel is published?
Even though the News-Leader
doesn't compensate Langshaw
for his irrelevant rhetoric, it should
consider a better use of its valu-
able newspaper space. Cripps, on
the other hand, appears to be a
whirligig of hysteria thatwould put
the Mad Hatter to shame. I hope
he taught his students "how to
think" rather than "what to think."
However, I doubt it. I am certainly
thankful that no one in my
family had to sit through one of his
classes.

When I read Coleman
Langshaw's piece and then this guy
Cripps' letter (May 16), I just shook
my head and wondered, "Where
do you get idiots like this"?
A few facts: If Bush lied, then so
did Hillary, Bill, Pelosi, Reed, Big
John Kerry (war hero), Kennedy
and practically all the Democrats in
the Congress and Senate after 9/11
(except those who were getting
paid by Saddam). All of them said
the same thing - Saddam had
WMDs and was the biggest threat
in the world at the time - and sup-

If anybody lied, it was the incom-
petent head of the Clinton CIA
whom.Bush stupidly left in place
when he became president - the
same guy who pushed for the
cruise missile strikes against an
aspirin factory in Sudan and a
camel stall in Afghanistan. Brilliant,
those Democratic intelligence
types!
As for "waterboarding" (tor-
ture), it might surprise you two to
know that I and thousands of other
Americans have had the unpleasant
experience as part of our training as
military aviators during the
Vietnam War. If it was good enough
for us, it's more than good enough
for them. They didn't kill us, didn't
warp us for the rest of our lives,
but it damn sure impressed us and
was something we never wanted
to go through again - along with a
lot of other experiences we were
exposed to in service to our nation,
so numbskulls like you could be
free (if you can handle it).
Mr. Cripps, your hyperbole in
using the word "monster" to
describe this president is so over
the top, you lose all credibility. You,
want to know what a monster is?
How about Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot,
Mao, Saddam and a whole host of

Time to audit


countyCode


Enforcement

A s Nassau County government wrestles
with declining revenues, it's time to
deal with the wasteful habits of our local
government
County commissioners have turned Animal
Control over to Sheriff Tommy Seagraves with
good reason. An audit has just confirmed that
"lax oversight" of that department led to inade-
quate financial accounting that resulted in thou-
sands of dollars going missing.
The accounting was so bad, the department
didn't know how much money it had lost from an
apparent theft; the figure was updated from
$3,000 to $6,000 to $14,000 as auditors dug
deeper.
That same lack of oversight perhaps has more
troubling consequences. A draft audit, amended
before release to the public, suggested Animal
4ntrol had lost more of a fedeM i f]io.l ) irh
djug - sold on the street as the party drug
"Special K" - than it could have used to euthanize
animals.
The draft audit recommended that "appropri-
-ate authorities" be called upon to investigate pos-
sible "criminal" infractions. But that recommen-
dation was absent from the final audit report
because, Clerk of Court John Crawford told us, it
is time to look forward to improving Animal
Control, which is now under new management
Crawford admits his finance department could
have done more to oversee Animal Control arid
promised improvements. That is laudable.
We also laud Crawford for setting up an inter-
nal audit team that is now available to look more '
closely at county government financial opera-
tions..This will lead to better financial accounta-
bility in the future.
But for that to take root in county government,
officials must be held accountable for their short-
comings in the past.
Brenda Rothwell was wrongly given dual
duties as director of Animal Control and Code
Enforcement. The job was too big for one person,
and Animal Control was understaffed.
. Having acknowledged that, however, we must
question Rothwell's skills. She is primarily
responsible for the sloppy recordkeeping and
gross mismanagement the audit uncovered.
This newspaper has a history with Rothwell.
She was charged with violating the state public
records law 11 years ago after the News-Leader
was denied.access to records, some of which
were subsequently destroyed, while she was
employed by the city of Fernandina Beach.
The draft audit suggested Rothwell had violat-
ed the Florida Sunshine Law last June when she
denied us access to euthanization records that
detail the use of federally controlled drugs. In
fact, it wasn't until March that she turned over
those records to the county clerk's office - five
months after she was fired as Animal Control
director. She also reportedly took those records
home to apparently work on them.
, "Sloppy" recordkeeping is, in our opinion, a
euphemism for the lack of records, including
those required by law, or for Rothwell and her
staff preparing or changing records months after
the fact. Rothwell apparently has no talent for
recordkeeping that precisely records events
when they occur.
Given that, we urge county commissioners to
ask the clerk to audit the financial and other
records of Code Enforcement, which she contin-
ues to manage.
We've received numerous complaints about
how Code Enforcement does its job - who is
cited, who is ignored - and about inappropriate
threats or intimidation. We intend to look into
those.
As Crawford suggested, it's time to look for-
ward. We look forward to the county auditing and
improving the management of Code Enforcenment
next.

SLittle metal monsters on wheels


r 're selling ourselves short. Maybe a
Scl decade or so of life.
W No one disagrees that the cell phone
Sis one of the great inventions of the 20th
century. It can be our best friend at an airport or in
an emergency. And it can be our worst enemy on the
highway.
Some of the most startling findings on the dan-
gers of cell phone use have been reported by
researchers at the University of Utah. With a group
of 40 people and a simulator, the University of Utah
research team devised a test to reveal the reactions
of cell phone users, people who were inebriated and
people with no distractions whatsoever.
The study showed that the alcohol-impaired fared
better than the cell phone users and cell phone driv-
ers were five times more likely to be in an accident
than the drivers who were sober and cell phone free.
There were three accidents among the cell phone
users and no accidents among those who had too
much to drink.
Hand-held or hands-free devices made no differ-
ence. "The problem is the conversation," according
to one of the researchers, University of Utah profes-
sor of psychology Frank Drews. Drivers are paying
more attention to the conversation than to their driv-
ing environment. They look, but they don't see. Fifty
percent of the visual information, such as a red light,

was not being processed, obvi-
ously greatly increasing the
opportunity for a collision.
The bottom line of the
Utah study, according to
researcher Drews - cell
phone use was linked to "a
significant increase in the
accident rate."
U.S. Highway Traffic
Safety Administration
spokesman Rae Tyson con-
curred with the danger
assessment. "We don't believe
talking on a cell phone while
driving is safe. It is a level of
distraction that can affect your
driving performance."
Nationwide Insurance estimat-
ed that in 2007, 73 percent of


drivers use cell phones.
The'Harvard Center for Risk Analysis surmised
that drivers on cell phones may be the cause of an
estimated 2,600 deaths, 330,000 moderate to critical
injuries and 1.5 million cases of property damage in
the United States per year.
Nassau County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves termed
the problem of ceiling and driving as "huge."


Such behavior can get expensive for the driver
and sometimes the driver's employer. Smith Barney
paid a $500,000 settlement to the family of a motorcy-
clist killed by a Smith Barney broker making a sales
call in his car at the time of the crash. The state of
Hawaii forked over $1.5 million to a New Jersey man
who was struck by a Department of Education spe-
cial education teacher, ceiling and driving on her
way to work.
In view of so much damning evidence against the
dual role of wireless wheeling and dealing, why have
so many state legislatures pressed the mute button
on the subject of silencing cell phones on the high-
way? In Florida, for instance, legislation to prevent
drivers 18 and under from using cell phones while
driving reportedly failed this last session.
Why? Self interest, perhaps. Take a trip to
Tallahassee. Sit in a restaurant or walk down the
street and watch legislators, lobbyists and staffers
talking to their ears. Why would these multi-taskers
want to surrender any use of the little metal monster
that has become their master?
Only, perhaps, when they become convinced the
life they save may be their own.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Masstransit
The author of the May 21 Viewpoint has some
great ideas in how to alleviate traffic problems on
A1A. However, has he really stopped to consider just
how much timber gets trucked in by way of this cru-
cial road?
Railroad crossings are at US 17, Felmor Road,
Chester Road, Blackrock, Barnwell Road, O'Neil-Scott
Road and the Piney Island entrance. Has the author
taken a ride down each of the roads to see how many
residents live on them? Has he taken a look at how
many streets will be blocked on the island while the
trains are going to the timber mills? One can only imag-
ine the backup of vehicles this is going to cause on and
off the island! This will become a nightmare to people
just trying to get to work and back home each day.
Mass transit is a great idea in metropolitan areas
where people live close by to their work, schools,
churches, hospitals and shopping. That idea sounds
really good, but to most residents it will be a hardship.
There are too many factors family members would
have to consider before they "ditch their cars in Yulee
and hop on the train."
It's also doubtful that light passenger trains and
commercial rail cars could share the same railway.
Figuring out how to fix this big mess is going to be
difficult, but I applaud the author of the Viewpoint for *
trying to come up with valuable ideas. I hope the coun-
ty's lawmakers are seriously reading and listening to
every idea that is being put before them. A1A is not just
a problem anymore - it's a crisis and should be treat-
ed as such.

end of the pond, but I knew they ,
were there by the crunching
noises and the occasional big
splash when one tussled with its
prey. Eventually, though, I knew
they would come down to my end


of the pond to
mark their ter-
ritory, and
"dance"
together. Our
pond shore is
their party
ground. It's
where they
enter and
Pat leave the
pond, and
Foster- Turley .most impor-
~... tantly, it's
where they
dIIDWAYS deposit their
scat.
Sure enough, I only had to
wait 10 minutes or so before the
otters swam past me, and on to
their scatting ground. All three
otters came ashore, and vigorous-
ly performed the communal defe-
cation dance, tails raised, back
feet shuffling, all three vying to .
add their deposit to the communi-
ty latrine. This social behavior
forms an important bond
between otters in the same
group. While the otters were so
engaged, they didn't notice me -


they had only each other to think
about.
But when they left the shore
and swam back idr front of me, my
cover was blown. Although I was
motionless, my smell was there
and that's all they needed. All
three periscoped'up in the water
to look at me, then one "huffed"
in alarm, and they sped off to
the other end of the pond. It was
time to replenish my coffee, and
think of a new hiding place to
view the second act of the Otter
Show.
I regrouped on the bench a bit
further from the pond, and some-
what obscured by the vegetation.
I didn't have long to wait. Less
than a half hour since the last
dance, the otters again came
back to their party pavilion. As
they passed my old spot on the
deck, they all looked that way,
but no, I wasn't there, and they
relaxed. Another round of tail
raising, foot paddling, communal
dance maneuvers, and all three
added yet some more fish-scale,
crayfish shell laden sprint to the
pile. This time I had a ringside


seat but was downwind and they
never noticed me.
When they left the dance floor
again and headed back to the
other side of the pond I
regrouped. With the cockiness
that comes with photos already
on my camera I positioned myself
on yet another bench back in the
woods and closer to their dance
floor. I just got settled when I
started hearing chirping sounds
coming from the woods behind
me. Another otter was sending its
contact call message to the three
in the pond! In a flash, there was
crashing in the brush, and a large
otter ran through the woods right


by me on my bench. I could have
touched him - for a him it was.
He never saw me, and it hap-
pened so quickly I couldn't snap a
shot, before he was in the pond *
searching for his mates.
So, folks, there are now four
otters in the Stooges' Clan. Last
year in April there were five.
Then I recorded three otters in
one group, joined by two otters in
another group. Although the
Three Stooges hang out together
year round, in spring they
become more social and gather
with others in their area for the
spring jamboree. This phenome-
non is reported wherever river

otters are found. At times of high
food availability, otters readily
share the resources with those in
their area.
Our pond, in spring, with its
crayfish, and gambusia fish, and
its delectable bladderwort pack-
ages of small animal prey is per-
fect for them. In Fernandina, the
otter spring jamboree happens in
my own backyard. How lucky can
I get!

Yulee Middle School



band jazzes it up


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader

They were jazzing it up at the
annual Girl Scout Father-Daughter
Banquet at the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center on May 10..
The Yulee Middle School Jazz
Bandperformed a variety of music
including blues, bebop, big band,
jazz-rock and Latin. Dads and
daughters danced away the even-
ing to tunes such as "Twist and
Shout," "Wild Thing" and "Loco-
Motion," garnering rave reviews.
"Jazz Band played miraculously.
I had so many attendees talk about
how wonderful you were and
thrilled to see that the school par-
ticipated in events for community
service/support," said Troop 726
leader Gail Washburn.
The jazz band also performed at
the YMS fall, Christmas and spring,
concerts and at the District 17 Jazz
Music Performance Assessment.
This is the first year the YMS


Jazz Band has performed at the
Music Performance Assessment,
and they received a high rating.
"I was thrilled that the YMS Jazz
Band would achieve the rating of
'Excellent' for their first perform-
ance at the District 17 Music
Performance Assessment," said
director Andy Shepard.
The YMS jazz band, composed
of 17 students between the ages of
12 and 14, was one of only two mid-
dle school jazz bands to perform.
"We would be more than willing to
play at banquets of all kinds, as
well as business grand openings,
etc.," said Shepard.
"I simply want my students to
learn the importance of support-
ing their local community."
Shepherd said the band does
not ask for any payment but would
not turn down donations to the
band program. For information e-

DR OSNANSER *YU QESI*


Q QUESTION: My baby is
only a year old and she is
a joy to my husband and
me. But your description
of toddlerhood is kind of
scary. It's just around the
corner Are the "terrible
twos" really so terrible?
DR. DOBSON. I think the toddler
years are delightful. It is a period .of
dynamic blossoming and unfolding.
New words are being learned daily,
and the cute verbal expressions of that
age will be remembered for half a cen-
tury. It is a time of excitement over
fairy stories and Santa Claus and furry
puppy dogs.And most important, it is
a precious time of loving and warmth
that will scurry by all too quickly and
will never return.
Admittedly, the toddler years can
also be quite challenging to a busy
mother. Not the least of her frustra-
tions is the negativism of that period
of development It has been said that
all human beings can be classified into
two broad categories: those who would
vote "yes" to the various propositions
of life, and those who would be inclined
to vote "no " I can tell you with confi-
dence that each toddler around the
world would definitely cast a negative
votel
If there is one word that charac-
terizes the period between fifteen and
twenty-four months of age, it is nol


Dr.
James

Dobson


No, he doesn't want to eat his cereal.
No, he doesn't want to play with his
dump truck. No, he doesn't want to
take his bath.And you can be sure, no,
he doesn't want to get to bed anytime
at all. It is easy to see why this period
of life has been called "the first ado-
lescence," because of the negatives,
conflict, and independence of the age.
Perhaps the most Irritating
aspect of the "terrible twos" Is the
tendency of kids to spill things, destroy
things, eat horrible things, fall off
things, flush things, kill things, and get
into things.They also have a knack for
doing embarrassing things, like sneez-
ing on a nearby man at a lunch count-
er.
During these toddler years, any
unexplained silence of more than thir-
ty seconds can throw an adult into a
sudden state of panic.What mother
has not had the shock of opening the
bedroom to find Tony Tornado cov-
ered with lipstick from the top of his
pink head to the carpet on which he
stands? On the wall is his own artistic


creation with a red handprint in the
center, and throughout the room is
the aroma of Chanel No.5 with which
he has anointed his baby brother.
Wouldn't it be interesting to hold a
national convention sometime, bring-
ing together all the mothers who have
experienced that exact trauma?
Yes, toddlerhood is challenging,
but it is also a wonderful time of life.
It will last but a brief moment in time.
There are millions of older parents
today with grown children who would
give all they possess to relive those
bubbly days with their toddlers. Enjoy
these years to the fullest.
QUESTION: Our twenty-lour-
month old son is not yet toilet iraned.
although my mother-in-law feels h-e should
be under control now.ShI.uld we spank him
for using his pants instead of the pocty!
DR. DOBSON: No. Suggest that
your mother in-law coal down a bit. It is
lndtirely possible that your child can'tt *:on-
trol himself at this age. The last thing you
want to do is punish a child of any age lor
an offense whKh he can't'comprehend. If I
had to err on this matter, at would be in the
direction ofl Ling too late. rather than too
early Furthermore, the besr approach to
potty training Is with rewards and encour.
agement rather than with punishment. Gire
him a sucker (or sugarlpsss candy) for per-
forming his duty.When you've proved that
he can comply. then you can hold him
responsible in the future.

State grants 'green'



award to Plantation


Amelia Island Plantation has
received the coveted Green
Lodging destination certification
from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP).
A ceremony to award the certi-
fication was scheduled Tuesday at
the resort. The voluntary state ini-
tiative provides the lodging industry
with technical assistance by encour-
aging hotels and motels to adopt
cost-saving "green" practices that
reduce waste and conserve natural
resources.
"Amelia Island Plantation is tak-
ing the necessary steps to help pro-
tect, restore and conserve Florida's
natural resources," according to
DEP district director Bill Green.
"We are pleased to welcome the
resort to the Florida Green Lodging
Program family."
Green noted the resort's com-
mitment to the environment
through its resort-wide recycling


program that includes the resort's
800-plus full time residents, guests
and employees. The program
includes glass, plastic, aluminum
and newspapers, plus electronics.
The resort also shows its com-
mitment to being "green" through
its use of computerized energy sav-
ing HVAC systems in its oceanfront
Amelia Inn, automatic and low flush
water fixtures in guest and public
restrooms, low energy and long last-
ing fluorescent lighting resort wide,
Project Planet linen and towel re-use
program, reclaimed water for irri-
gating its landscaping and golf
courses, and clean and green pest
control and housekeeping products.
, The resort also is implementing
corn-based "to go" containers in its
restaurants, investigating solar
water heaters, golf carts, service
vehicles and guest shuttles and con-
tinuing its use of recycled and recy-
clable paper in its printing..


To be a designated member of
the Florida Green Lodging
Program, hotels must implement a
variety of green practices. These
practices include, but are not limit-
ed to, water conservation measures
through low flow plumbing fixtures
and a linen reuse program, and
energy efficiency achieved by
installing Energy Star appliances
and programmable thermostats.
The waste reduction criteria are
met by providing the opportunity to

BUDGET CRISIS FALLS ON THE BACKS OF OUR

CHILDREN IN PUBLIC SCHOOL

As this school year winds down, Nassau County teachers and everyone else who works in our
public schools should be looking forward to the change of pace and relaxation of summer.
Instead, we're all worried sick, and with good reason.
Florida's struggling economy, an unfair tax system and some lawmakers have combined to cre-
ate an ugly state budget that will come crashing down on public schools here in Nassau County
and throughout the state.
After listening to political leaders continually promise to hold education harmless so that
Floridians would approve the property-tax.cutting Amendment 1 in January, we now see that
those were just empty political promises.
No one is certain what's going to happen, but we know that next year the Nassau County
schools will be faced with more students, skyrocketing fuel costs - and $2.3 million less from
the state than it started the 2007-2008 school year.
The Nassau County School's budget was already tight because of two funding cuts this year
resulting in an overall loss of $272 per student since last May. And it's about to get a whole lot tighter.
Throughout the state, teachers and educational staff professionals are losing their jobs, schools
are being closed, arts and music programs curtailed or eliminated, after-school programs and
summer classes cancelled or scaled back, and school resource officers and crossing guards are
being cut.
Our political leaders claim their hands are tied and they must be fiscally responsible, but those
words are more hollow than their promises to hold education harmless. The paramount duty of
lawmakers is to invest in Florida's future: our children and all those who work to educate and
prepare for the future.
Choices were available: Political leaders could have dipped into rainy day funds. They could
have decided to begin to enforce the state's sales tax on Internet businesses. They could have
decided to collect sales taxes on stadium skyboxes, yachts docked in the state, athletic and the-
atrical agents, health clubs and golf courses, and dozens of the items exempt from sales taxes.
They could have chosen to increase taxes on cigarette and alcohol sales. They might have even
decided not to increase funding for corporate tax breaks to unproven voucher schools.
INSTEAD, they chose to balance the budget on the backs of children in our public schools.
That's nothing more than election year politicking. You see they're counting on you forgiving
and forgetting when it comes time to cast your votes in the August primary and the November
general election.
Well, don't forgive and don't forget. It's time we elect lawmakers who will make significant
investments in our 'children, fix the unfair tax system in Florida and stop kowtowing to those
who fill their campaign coffers. It's time to let them know who they work for - - the people of
Nassau County and the State of Florida.
Debbie Broxton, President
Nassau Teachers Association j JF


It is with sincere regret that I announce my intent to withdraw from the race
for the Florida House of Representatives District 12. There are several
reasons why I made this decision, most importantly was the time my wife
and I need to spend with our senior parents, including her mother who is
terminal. Having served as Sheriff of Bradford County for 16 years and with
over 34 years of public service, I want to step outside the spotlight for a while
and enjoy some time in private enterprise. With those new ventures, I will
not be able to give the time the citizens deserve from their representative.

I want to thank the hundreds of Nassau County citizens who joined my
campaign over the last few months. You have been a blessing to Carol and
myself and I hope to continue our friendships for many years to come.

With Many Thanks,

'Heritage trees' help define

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


Imagine, if you can, what
Fernandina Beach would look like
without its awe-inspiring live oaks,
magnolias and wealth of other
shade trees.
That is why it's so important to
have a city arborist looking out for
our trees.
City arborist Kevin Sullivan,
who works for the city's
Community Development
Department, says trees are impor-
tant to communities because they
add worth to our properties by pro-
viding shade and wind protection,
as well as aesthetic value.
Trees can also reduce noise pol-
lution and absorb harmful pollu-
tants as well as small particles that
can harm our lungs. Other impor-
tant functions are providing a home
for wildlife, and adding nutrients to
our soil with dead leaves and rot-
ting logs.
As city arborist, Sullivan's duties
are to enforce the city's tree ordi-
nance and review plans with archi-
tects and developers to prevent the
destruction of trees during con-
struction. He also advises citizens
with tree issues and processes tree
removal permits.
Another important function is
administering the Heritage Tree
program, which designates certain
trees as irreplaceable due to size,
age and historic, aesthetic or cul-
tural significance. The tree should
also be a native species such as
live oak, Southern magnolia or
Southern red cedar and have a

This live oak in front of Fred's store at Ash and Eighth streets is the type of tree eligible for
Heritage Tree status, according to city arborist Kevin Sullivan.


diameter of at least 36 inches.
According to Sullivan, several
city trees are being considered for
Heritage Tree designation. Some
on private property, such as the
live oak in the parking lot of Fred's
variety store on Ash Street, would
require the owner's consent for
nomination.
The city of Fernandina Beach
celebrated Arbor Day on April 28


with a tree-planting ceremony and
official proclamation in Egans
Creek Park. Fourth-grade students
from Emma Love Hardee
Elementary School helped plant
cedar trees and later took a trip to
the Amelia Island Museum of
History. The ceremony also rec-
ognized the city's designation in
2007 as a Tree City USA, a pro-
gram administered by the Arbor


Day Foundation.

trees of Fernandina Beach, go to
the FIequently Asked Questions
section of the city's website,

'Community of Friends' comes together in Yulee


SUBMITTED
Ben Shay outside Ben's
Place, which provides social
opportunities for developmen-
tally disabled adults.


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
"My son Ben is the inspiration
for Ben's Place," said Melody
McFadden, executive director
and founder.
"He came to me just before
his 21st birthday asking for help
meeting some 'hot chicks.' That's
when I realized there were no
peer organizations available for
our citizens with developmental
disabilities. Ben needed a place to
meet and socialize with peers.
"It was Ben's idea to have the
tag line,'A Community of
Friends,'" McFadden continued.
"Had it not been for my son's
strong desire for a place to hang
out and meet new friends and his
unwavering commitment to see it


through, I doubt that we would
have come this far."
Ben's Place, which meets
Saturday evenings from 6-8 p.m.
at ARC/Nassau, 86051 Hamilton
St. in Yulee, provides social and
recreational opportunities for
developmentally disabled adults
over 18.
Individuals looking to build
social and behavioral skills can
break the dull routine and isola-
tion that sometimes accompanies
living with a disability and enjoy
fun and friendship in a clubhouse
atmosphere.
Social interaction often dimin-
ishes considerably once develop-
mentally disabled individuals
complete their schooling.
"Ben's Place provides a new
community of friends once the,


school bus stops arriving," said
McFadden.
"After attending Ben's Place
for several months, one young
man gave me a huge bear hug
and said 'thank you!'" said
McFadden.
"He told me he used to have
nothing and no one to hang out
with. Now, he said, 'On Monday I
say four more days, Tuesday,
three more, and so on. I have so
many friends now!' he said, clap-
ping his hands."
For more information about
Ben's Place, call McFadden at
(904) 509-6975. For residents on
the West Side, there is also a
gathering place at 4401
Westconnet Blvd., Jacksonville.

2 Callahan residents die




in weekend accidents


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Two deadly vehicle accidents
over the Memorial Day weekend
claimed the lives of two Callahan
residents and left one Callahan
man in critical condition.
Nathan Thomas, 60, of Callahan
is in critical condition at Shands
Jacksonville after the Saturday acci-
dent that killed his passenger, Nina
Thomas, 56, also of Callahan.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Thomas was driv-
ing a 1998 Cadillac four-door car
* north on Dillon Road in Duval
County, about a mile north of


Nassau County, when he veered
off the road, overcorrected the
vehicle and crossed over into the
southbound lane of traffic at about
7:05 p.m.
His vehicle struck a 2008
Toyota SUV, driven by John Boyd,
43, of Bryceville. Boyd and his pas-
senger, Tammi Boyd, 42, of
Bryceville, received minor injuries.
All four people were wearing
their seatbelts, said Lt. Bill Leeper,
FHP spokesperson.
On Monday about 4:15 a.m.,
John Douglas Kilgore Jr., 21, of
Callahan was killed after he report-
edly struck a 2003 tractor trailer on
SR 200, east of White Dove Trail,


four miles east of Callahan.
Kilgore was driving a 1995
Chevrolet pickup truck east when,
according to a witness, he drove
into the westbound lane to pass a
vehicle and struck the tractor trail-
er, which was traveling west.
Kilgore was not wearing a seatbelt,
Leeper said, and he was ejected
from the vehicle and died at the
scene.
Joseph Allbritton, 32, of
Nahunta, Ga., was not wearing a
seatbelt; he was uninjured in the
accident.
Leeper said both accidents are
under investigation.

Faith Christian Academy was hold-
ing its annual field day event out-
side.
Police say Margaret Ann Gatti,
29, received only minor injuries in
the accident, which happened at
10 a.m.
According to police, Gatti was
treated at the scene by Nassau
County Fire Rescue paramedics
and refused transport to the hos-
pital.
She initially was cited for care-
less driving, but as a result of a
"separate investigation" she was
also arrested for driving under the
influence of alcohol.
Police said Gatti was driving
her 2006 Acura about 55 mph,
which is the posted speed limit
on that section of A1A east.
Witnesses told police the right
side of her vehicle left the road-
way. and she attempted to regain
control but her car swerved into
the ditch and skidded across the
field.
Gatti was wearing a seatbelt,.
according to police. She reported-
ly refused to take a sobriety test,
but police believe she was under
the influence of alcohol when the
accident happened.
The vehicle sustained approxi-
naely $6,000 in damages, accodrd-.
ing to the report.

COURT REPORT


This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office, the
city of Fernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a
crime, not guilty.
Anyone with information about
criminal activity can contact the
"We Tip" program - 1-800-78CRI
ME - allows anonymous tips.
E-mail threat
Nassau County detectives are
investigating a threatening e-mail
that was sent to a Bryceville
woman, and apparently several
other people as well, earlier this
month.
The 49-year-old woman noti-
fied police May 16 when' she
received an e-mail from an
unknown person telling her the
sender had been paid to kill her
within 10 days. The letter went on
to say the sender would not kill
the woman if she paid $8,000 -
and the suspect said once she paid
$3,500 of that, he or she would
reveal who had paid to have her
killed.
"The e-mail concluded by warn-
ing the receiver not to notify law
enforcement," it said in a police
report. "The victim (said) she did
not recognize the e-mail address
and did not respond in fear of the
sender obtaining personal infor-
mation."
According to police, the e-mail
was not addressed to any specific
person and the victim's name was
not mentioned in the e-mail. The
victim was able to determine the e-
mail had been sent to numerous e-
mail accounts. It reportedly iiclud-
ed several grammatical and
spelling errors.
Accidental shooting
A Callahan man was hospital-
ized after he accidentally shot him-
self in the hand while he was
attempting to put the gun in his
holster.
John Briggs Crosby, 21, told
police May 17 that he was sitting
on the floor in his home trying to
put the Taurus .38 special revolver
into the holster when his thumb
slipped off the hammer and the
gun discharged. Crosby was
struck in the left hand by the bul-
let, which was found on the floor
behind a chair Crosby was sitting
in front of when the gun fired.
Crosby was treated at Shands
Jacksonville.

Internal investigations decline


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A broken window, a forged sig-
nature and long road trips were
some of the factors that led to the
discipline and, in some cases, ter-
mination of Nassau County Sheriff's
Office employees in the past year.
' Eight employees, including six
sworn officers, were the subjects
of internal investigations - when
law enforcement officials are
assigned to investigate alleged
infractions by their agency col-
leagues - since the beginning of
2007. A total of nine such investi-
gations were conducted through-
out the year, down from 33 in 2006.
"We have really pushed through
a lot of the issues and problems,"
said Nassau County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves. "We have a lot of good
employees, a good group."
One deputy who is not part of
the group anymore is former
Transportation Deputy Eugene
Keller.
Keller was fired from the depart-
ment last summer following an
investigation into allegations by his
coworkers that he drove under the
speed limit and made extra stops on
road trips in order to get as many
overtime hours as possible and mis-
treated the inmates he transport-
ed.
Keller's coworkers told investi-
gators he would tell inmates if he
heard their chains rattling, he would
shoot them.


Deputy Michael Braswell report-
edly told an investigator he felt
Keller was afraid of the inmates.
"... Keller is very aggressive
towards them even when they are
not giving (him) any problems," he
is quoted as saying. "... Every time
... they load an inmate up, Keller
will tell them, 'If I hear the chains
rattling I will take it as if you are try-
ing to escape and I will unload my
gun back there."'
Keller denied the allegations
against him, but the investigator
determined most of them were
founded and the deputy was termi-
nated from the agency.
Valerie Curtis, an employee in
grants and purchasing, was also ter-
minated last year after she admitted
to forging Seagraves' signature on
a letter referencing a grant adjust-
ment.
According to sheriff's office doc-
uments, the act is a third-degree
felony.
"I really didn't have a choice but
to fire her," Seagraves recalled.
Other employees who were
investigated and disciplined, but
not terminated, included Deputy
Earl Alberta, Detention Deputy
Robert Lee and Sgt. Randall Reeves.
Lee was required to take anger
management classes and tem-
porarily suspended from work after
he threw a scrub brush at a window
in one of the control towers inside
the jail and broke the window. The
incident happened Jan. 12.

report, Lee threw the brush at the
window to get the attention of a
tower operator who had taken a
bathroom break because she was ill.
Seagraves said Lee was also
required to pay the cost of replacing
the window, which was $4,634.70.
Reeves received remedial train-
ing after he reportedly used sher-
iff's office equipment to run the
license plate of his girlfriend's eQ-
husband and his girlfriend to obtain
their personal information.
Seagraves said Reeves was required
to undergo "remedial training" after
an investigator found the allega-
tions to be founded.
And Alberta was suspended
from duty after an investigation
found he had failed to "carry out
his duties appropriately as a law
enforcement officer" on four sepa-
rate calls.
Seagraves said any number of


things can spark an internal inves-
tig~tn, -.&frwg complaints by'
cowrte0rs or citizens to even the
rumor rrilL One deputy was inves-
tigated and drug tested after some-
one started telling people that
deputy was doing drugs and
Seagraves got wind of it. The deputy
tested clean and was cleared of the
allegations.
"We're in a small community,
and when I hear something, I look
intp it," Seagraves said.
Accidents involving department
vehicles, firing a gun and employee
arrests typically will result in an
internal probe as well.

To avoid disturbing beach-nest-

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC),
Florida Department of


Environmental Protection (DEP)
and Audubon of Florida are asking
people to abide by posted nesting
areas.
"State and local agencies, along

identify and clearly mark these
areas to help protect beach-nesting

wildlife during critical nesting peri-
ods," said DEP Secretary Michael
Sole. 'These nesting areas are vital
to the birds' survival, so we are
asking residents and visitors to
keep an eye out for signs or roped-
off areas while enjoying Florida's
sandy beaches."
The crush of people drawn to
Florida's coasts can be disastrous
for beach-nesting birds whose
nests are little more than small
scrapes in the sand. Human dis-
turbance flushes them off their
nests, leaving their eggs to cook in
the hot sun in mere minutes.
"Most people think a mother
bird is incubating her eggs to keep
them warm," said Ann Hodgson,
Florida Coastal Islands Sanctuaries
Manager "With Florida's beach-
nesting birds, the parent is actual-
ly providing shade to eggs and
chicks during the day. A single sig-
nificant disturbance can destroy
an entire colony." "It's not that peo-
ple don't care, it's that the eggs,
nests and babies of these birds are
really hard to see until it's too late,"
said Nancy Douglass, Regional
Nongame Wildlife Biologist for the
FWC. "The posted areas let people
know where these vulnerable
'nurseries' are. By walking a few
yards out of your way to avoid dis-
rupting these families, you can
help to insure successful nesting
and future generations of beach-
nesting wildlife."
These roped-off areas protect
areas where a single disturbance
can affect hundreds or thousands
of birds and their nests, and only
during this critical nesting period.
Later in the summer, the birds and
thei- chicks will be gone, and these
areas will no longer be off limits.
Ann Hodgson, Audubon's
Florida Coastal Islands Sanctuaries
Manager, reminded beachgoers
that in addition to staying out of
designated nesting areas, they also
can make the bea6h more enjoy-
able for others by following these
simple guidelines:
* When walking along the
beach, avoid the temptation to
flush groups of birds. They may
be resting, feeding or sheltering
eggs. By giving them a wide berth,
you'll make sure your actions don't
have deadly consequences for eggs
or chicks.
* Similarly, obey leash laws and
don't allow dogs to flush birds.
Even in areas where there do not
appear to be groups of shorebirds,
solitary nesters may be camou-
flaged with the beach. It's best to
keep dogs off the beaches entire-
ly or only take them to "doggie
beaches" until later in the summer
when the birds have finished nest-
ing.'
* In places where beach driving
is allowed, take extra care to be
aware of birds on the beach.
Drivers who move faster than a
pedestrian and are isolated by their
vehicles from the sights and
sounds of the beach are more like-
ly to overlook birds. Furthermore,
chicks sometimes take shelter in
the depression of tire tracks in the
sand, leaving them vulnerable to
other vehicles that follow them.

JOHN LLOYD (PRIVATEPAPARAZZI@MAC.COM)/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
It was perfect weather on Memorial Day weekend to lounge on the beach, and plenty of people
did. The unofficial start of summer - the real deal is still more than three weeks away - was
heralded by all those out of town license plates heading for the shore.

Even at 81,

JoePa sees

the need for

playoff
If you're a stodgy old con-
sei vafive who doesn't see
the need for a college
football playoff, well, your
argument just became a little
more difficult. Because they
don't come more stodgy and
certainly not any older, at
least in the coaching ranks of
college football, than Penn
State's Joe Paterno. And
JoePa wants a playoff, baby.
"To be frank with you, I
don't know what the reasons
are not to have a playoff,"
Paterno said during a speak-
ing engagement in Pittsburgh,
according to wire reports.
"You can talk about missing
class and all that kind of stuff,
(yet) you see basketball go on
forever. You have a lot of
bogus excuses, but obviously
the majority of people who
have the say don't-want it"
Preach on, brother. If
JoePa sees it, there's at least a
glimmer of hope that some of
these other old codgers who
have "a say" might someday
wake up and see it. Hopefully
Paterno will be around if and
when they finally do.
"I'm only going to be a
head coach another 10 or 15
years, and I don't think it will
happen by then," Paterno
said.
You've gotta love that
guy...
University of Washington
head football coach Tyrone
Willingham reportedly
offered a scholarship to a
freshman last week. No, not a
freshimanfitralsfer from anoth-
er college but a ninth-grade
high school student. Are you
kidding me?
I can see trying to gain a
recruiting edge against your
rivals by developing a relation-
ship with a 14-year-old player
who looks like he might have
the physical tools to play on
the next level one day. But to
offer a college scholarship to
a kid whose first year high
school credits have yet to hit
the books is insane.
And (e wonder why
today's ybung athletes walk
around with such prima
donna attitudes. Talk about
adding fuel to that fire ...
A moment of silence please
for Jack Mildren, a former
lieutenant governor and the
first quarterback to lead the
wishbone offense at the
University of Oklahoma.
Mildren lost his battle with
cancer last Thursday at the
age of 58.
I'm not an Oklahoma fan
but I am a fan of the wish-
bone. While I realize it doesn't
have the panache of some of
today's new-fangled schemes,
when executed properly, the
wishbone is virtually unstop-
pable. Mildren Company ran
it right in 1971, when
Oklahoma averaged a NCAA
record setting 472.4 rushing
yards per game. That record
still stands...
Many wonder how suc-
cessful the Atlanta Braves can
be in 2008 with John Smoltz
and Tom Glavine, who are
both over 40, in the starting
pitching rotation. As of
Sunday, the pair had a com-
bined 5-3 record and the
Braves were only one game
out of first place in the
National League East, even
though Smoltz has been side-
lined all of May with a sore
right shoulder.
I have two words to say to
those who think Smoltz and
Glavine are all washed up:
Charlie Leibrandt. Although
he was only 37 when he went
15-7 for the Braves in 1992,
Leibrandt didn't have any-
where close to the stuff both
Smoltz and Glavine still have.
Give me Glavine outsmarting
batters and Smoltz throwing
that heater for as long as he
can muster it. They might be
considered over the hill, but
to me, Glavine and Smoltz are
the Atlanta Braves.

SPRING JAMBOREE


Bobby Ramsay, Yulee High
School first-year head football
coach, said it was good for
his players to "look at the
scoreboard and not see a
zero" after Thursday's spring
jamboree in Hilliard.
Freshman quarterback
Conner Petty connected with
wide receiver Derrick
Peterson, also a freshman,
for a touchdown pass in a 21-
7. loss to Fernandina Beach.
Yulee fell 13-0 to Hilliard in
the first matchup of the night.
"The kids have really "
improved a lot," Ramsay said.
We were encouraged." Above
left, Cody Stokes carries the
ball for Hilliard. Above right,
Kentral Edwards does the
same for Yulee. Left, Tai
Alford heads for the end zone
for FBHS. Right, Domonic

I The chip is something that we do
not practice enough, yet it is such
an essential part of the game to
save strokes. With that said, here
are a couple of tips to try and get
more consistent in your chipping
Game. The first aspect of good chip-
ping is to keep a steady pace on your swing. If you
practice a shot and then change that during the
actual swing, the speed of the ball on the green will
be completely changed. The other big tip is so obvi-
ous, yet most amateur golfers have the hardest
time with the task. You need to stay down during
the entire motion of the chip to ensure a good shot.
Leave your head still and keep your eye on the spot
where the ball was before you hit it. Make sure your
posture following the chip is the same as when you
addressed the ball.

OUTDOORS


It's where



kingfishing



got its start

As king mackerel fishing began to grow in
popularity off the beaches of Clearwater,
St Petersburg and John's Pass, so did
the need to competitively fish for king
mackerel.
"My father, Gene Turner, Cid Rice and Shorty
Welch sat down at Gator's restaurant, located at
John's Pass, and formatted the spring and fall
Kingfish Classics," Chris Turner said. "These were
weekend events and were first sanctioned by the
Saltwater Angler's Association. Later, these popular
kingfish events began sanctioned by the Southern
Kingfish Association."
There was good reasoning for holding high-dol-
lar kingfish tournaments during both the fall and
spring fishing seasons. Massive schools of king
mackerel begin migrating from South Florida back
to the upper gulf during the
months of March, April and
May. During the fall, gulf coast
stock kingfish begin their fall
migration back to South
Florida during the months of
September, October and
November.
This is good reasoning for
the excellent kingfishing dur-
ing both the spring and fall
Terry Lacoss kingfish seasons from
Clearwater to the Tampa Bay
i ,---- shipping channel King mack-
OUTDOORS erel are attracted to a massive
hard bottom that lies just off
Clearwater Beach and the baitfish-laden shipping
channel located just a few miles south at the Tampa
Bay Skyway Bridge.
There are also numerous hard bottoms and
wrecks located off the beaches of Clearwater
Beach, John's Pass and west of Tampa Bay.
"The weather really doesn't matter during most
kingfish tournaments held from Clearwater and
John's Pass," Chris Turner said. "If there is a hard
southeast wind, you can find calm waters at the
Clearwater hard bottom. If the winds are hard from
northeast, you cAn find calm waters at the Tampa
Bay shipping channel.
"When they constructed the new Skyway
Bridge, the old bridge was left in place. The old
bridge really turned into a big kingfish magnet and
holds so much bait at times that fishermen can
walk on bait to the other side of the bay. In fact, just
the other day I had a fishing friend land a 42-inch
kingfish while fishing from the old Tampa Bay
bridge."
'OhrisTurnerstfillbelieves there are a lot of
kihgfislftn'hthe"gulf,'Which were once almost wiped
out by commercial king mackerel fishermen.
"Although there are big migrations of kingfish
during both the spring and fall fishing seasons, my
absolute favorite time of year to catch kingfish here
is during mid May," Chris Turner said. "We do
catch king mackerel all year long, but the.best fish-
ing for the big migratory king mackerel is still dur-
'ing the spring and fall seasons."
Gene Turner is also well known as one of the
pioneers for developing how we fish for kingfish -
today, particularly when chumming up a big
"mack" to a barbed live bait.
One of Gene Turner's kingfish techniques was
to anchor on the shallow edge of the Tampa Bay
shipping channel while bottom fishing for grouper.,
He often landed sizeable kingfish while catching
grouper for the dinner table.
"We frequently anchored just off from the deep-
channel of the shipping channel and fished for
grouper," Chris Turner said. "Naturally my father
would fish for kingfish at the same time and devel-
oped a very deadly chumming technique at the
same time.
"Keeping in mind that the stomach of a king
mackerel is very small, my father did not chum


SPECIAL PHOTOS
The annual Nassau Sport Fishing Association Kingfish Tournament draws both big crowds and a field of competitive kingfish teams from all
parts of the Southeast, above. Below, Chris Turner is pictured at the bow of his kingfish boat Shikari with his father Gene Turner and well-
known TV fishing personality Bill Miller at the helm.

heavily. My dad would sit on a cooler or bucket and
cut white baits into thin strips, using a sharp pair of
scissors. The small strips of white baits were then
tossed into the water very slowly to attract nearby
kingfish to our barbed live baits. In fact, my dad
' waited until one piece/of cut bait had totally van-
ished in the water columnbefore another tiny strip
ofwhite bait was tossed into the water."
For terminal kingfish tackle, Gene Turner used
20-pound class kingfish tackle while employing a
unique technique in catching tournament-size.king
mackerel
, "Myfather always estimated the' size of the'king-
fish that he would be catching on any given day,"
Chris Turner said. "With this in mind, Dad would
employ a No. 5 wire leader that was just a tad
longer.than the length of the targeted kingfish. He
also believed that a hooked kingfish would almost
always run straight away from the boat, causing the
tail of the king mackerel to 'tail whip' the terminal,


fishing line. By using a wire shock leader that was
just longer than the length ofthe-king mackerel,
parted fishing lines and lost kingfish wert avoided.
"At the business end of Dad's terminal kingfish
tackle, he would use a pair of 3407 Mustad, 5/0
fishing hooks. The eye of the second hook was
spread slightly apart so that the point of the first
hook could be threaded through the eye of the sec-
ond hook.
"The second hook is positioned in the opposite
direction of the first hook, while the first hook is
.barbed through the nose of the live bait. The sec-
ond hook is allowed to ride free alongside of the
baitfish, which often causes foul hooked king
mackerel."
As with many kingfish destinations, tides are
also extremely critical when fishing for Clearwater
and Tampa Bay kingfish.
"One thing that my father displayed a lot of
while king fishing was patience," Chris Turner


said. "My father really knew that the best kingfish
bite would come with the proper tide, but he always
fished hard through all of the tides."
Called the "Kingfish King," Gene Turner spent
an entire decade battling the commercial side .of
kingfishing and once said, "The day has passed
when you could go out and help yourself. We have
to realize that we need to leave some for everybody
else."
Gene Turner turns 90-years young this month
and never had a driver's license. His wife Jeannie
always drove Gene when needed. One thing we do
know, Gene Turner is responsible for how most
saltwater fishermen target kingfish today and, even
though he never had a driver's license, he frequent-
ly drove kingfish plumb crazy.

CATS ANGELS


Hi everyone! My name is
May and I am here with my
new mom, Mrs. Daley. She
adopted me from Cats
Angels last week as one of
Cats Angels first cats to par-
ticipate in the "Pets for
Seniors Adoption Program"
sponsored by Purina! The
way it works is that you have
to be 60 years of age and fill
out an adoption application
with Cats Angels. Cats
Angels has been granted
$500 from Purina to be
reimbursed for part of their
adoption fee to encourage
adoption to seniors. Since
the adult special for May is
$50, Ms. Daley adopted me
for no money! Of course,
she had to qualify and meet
all the adoption require-
ments of Cats Angels, but I
now have a new home and I
am very happy! If you
would like to adopt and
qualify for this program,
stop in and see all the cats
available for adoption
and talk with one of our
adoption volunteers or call
321-2267.
Our Thrift Store located
at 709 S. Eighth St. is open
Monday-Saturday from 11
a.m. to 5 p.m. We have lots
of great stuff for sale and we
always accept donations dur-
ing business hours. We are
in great need of volunteers
for the store and the adop-
tion center. We have a lot of


people going on vacation, so
we need help filling in for
these folks. If you can spare
a few hours a week, please
come by or call 321-2267.
The Spay Nassau
Program is running out of
funding. Please contact your
commissioners and urge
them to help the rescue
groups by funding this very
important program for low-
cost spay/neuter for quali-
fied pet owners in Nassau
County. Details on a future
fundraiser will be forthcom-
ing.
