TALK LIKE A PIRATE


4 'set up'


wife in


drug deal,


police say
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Police say a local woman nearly
went to jail for something she didn't do
when she was allegedly framed by her
estranged husband, a local business
owner, and three others including .a
former Yulee Little League coach who
was removed from coaching after
being arrested at the field during prac-
tice.
According to Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves, police
received a tip on Aug. 14 that Leona
Burkett was overheard planning a
drug transaction. When police stopped
Burkett's vehicle, they found cocaine,
prescription narcotics and a gun.
Burkett was detained and taken to the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office for
questioning.
Seagraves said Burkett "adamant-
ly denied" the drugs and gun were
hers and offered to take a drug test or
lie-detector test. Burkett told police
she was going through a "vicious"
divorce with her husband, John Ferrell
Burkett,' 44, of 86027 Shady Oaks
Drive in Yulee.
Fortunately for Leona Burkett,
something rang.true about what she
was saying to Seagraves, who said the
case just didn't seem right,to him.
Seagraves said he knows both Burkett
and her husband.

Jury favors


fire station


in dunking


booth trial
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
After a two-week trial held.at the
Nassau County Courthouse in down-
town Fernandina Beach, a jury ruled
in favor of the volunteer fire station
that provided a dunking booth where
a local physician was injured.
Dr. Robert Hogan of Fernandina
Beach was injured while participating
in a Relay for Life dunking booth event
in 2005; he claims his injuries now
prevent him from practicing surgery,
cutting his career short.
According to the initial complaint,
filed against Baptist Medical Center
Nassau on Jan. 30,2006, Hogan agreed
to participate in the American Cancer
Society Relay for Life at Fernandina
Beach High School on Nov. 3,2005, by
sitting in dunking booth.
The hospital, where Hogan
worked, was both a defendant and
third-party plaintiff to the suit, having
named Gray Gables Nassau Village
Volunteer Fire Department and the
American Cancer Society as third-
party defendants.
The idea was that those attending
the fundraiser could purchase balls to
throw at a target on the booth and, if
they hit the target, Hogan would fall
into the water below his collapsible
seat in the booth.
But the plan failed before the game
even began when Hogan slipped and
fell while trying to get into the booth.
He "caught his hand on some wire of
the dunking booth, causing a severe
cut on his hand."
Hogan's wound required stitches
and he alleged he developed Reflex

FEMA aid at


$300K locally
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
So far, Nassau County residents are getting the most
assistance from the Federal Emergency Management
Agency for storm damage from Tropical Storm Fay in the
tri-county area of Baker, Duval and Nassau.
According to FEMA Public Affairs Officer Amanda
Bicknell, 138 cases in Nassau County have been, regis-
tered with FEMA since the storm, and $300,565.58 in
FEMA grants had been approved as of Wednesday.
The average amount per registered case in the coun-
ty comes to $2,178, compared to roughly $494 in Duval
County and $1,397 in Baker County.
FEMA has set up a disaster recovery center at 45401
Mickler St., Callahan, where much of the damage was
reported following the flooding of Thomas Creek imme-
diately after the storm in late August. The office is open
from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. daily for residents to apply for finan-
cial assistance to repair storm damage not covered by
insurance.

Peck High School coaches Frank Owens, Beatrice Woodard-Hill,
Johnny Robinson Sr. and Nelson Williams.


"He was there for us. We could always
count on Coach. We loved him dear-
ly because he kept us on the straight
and narrow."
Because Peck was a segregated
school, says Frink, the students
received used materials from white
schools, including books and sports
uniforms. But Williams, he said, soon
put a stop to that.
Williams inspired the school to
raise money to buy new equipment by
holding fish frys for the community.
"We had a lot offish frys because fish
was so plentiful," says Frink.


Local families, who began to
believe in what Williams was doing,
also began to donate time and money
for the new uniforms.
"It was the first time we had uni-
forms in our colors (blue and gold),"
says Jones. "Prior to that we used
Fernandina Beach High School col-
ors."
Williams also fought for a new
gym for Peck High School, as well as
new, rather than used, school buses.

OHDEER!


Employees of Nick Deonas
Realty, 9 North 14th St., were
shocked when the glass front
door was shattered as a deer
crashed into the office
Wednesday. "I was sitting here
on the phone with a customer
and said, 'A deer just came
through our door!' She said,
'Perhaps you should call me
back,'" said Janet Hardy, whose
desk is mere feet from the door.
"It was quite an experience,"
said Lauralyn Lewis after the
bloodied deer thrashed about
the office. The deer was sedated
and removed by Robert Morris
and Amanda Sanders of the
Nassau Humane Society. The
animal was later determined to
have severe head injuries and
was euthanized. Morris said the
1- to 2-year-old deer was proba-
bly spooked while trying to
dodge traffic on 14th Street.

drug test and from that point a
lot of other stuff just didn't add
together," Seagraves said.
The tipster, whom Sea-
graves identified as Carla
Elizabeth Loper of 1607 Ellis
Landing Road in Fernandina
Beach, reportedly told police
she overheard Leona Burkett
talking on a cell phone about a
plan to commit an armed bur-
glary and about being in pos-
session of drugs at her place
of employment.
Seagraves said he thought it
strange that anyone would have
that kind of a conversation loud
enough for others to overhear,
especially considering Burkett
works as a waitress at a
Fernandina Beach restaurant.
"I've been to a lot of restau-
rants, and I just.don't see wait-
resses walking around with cell
phones on their heads talking
about drugs," he said.
Also, the way the gun and
drugs were placed in the car
was unusual compared to the
way individuals involved in
drug crimes typically package
and hide drugs and guns in
vehicles.
And Leona Burkett had no
criminal record.. ,
"She told me she'd never
even seen cocaine other than

on TV," Seagraves said.
In addition to Loper, 33,
John Ferrell Burkett, Mark
Regan, 36, and Fred Ring, 37,
were arrested in connection
with the case.
Ring was arrested in 2005
on a warrant for possession of
drugs and was later sentenced
to 13 months in jail for child
neglect.
Burkett was arrested Sept.
17 and Ring, Loper and Regan
were arrested Sept. 18. Ring
was at the ball field when appre-
hended by police.
According to Seagraves,
Burkett the owner of First
Coast Paint and Body- agreed
to pay Ring $2,000 and a new
paint job and other work to his
truck if he would put cocaine
and a gun into Leona Burkett's
vehicle. Ring allegedly paid
Loper $1,500 to put the items in
Burkett's vehicle and she paid
Regan $300 to do the same.
Burkett faces charges of
conspiracy to commit armed
burglary and conspiracy to
commit obstruction of justice.
He has been released from jail
on $100,004 bond.
Ring, Loper and Regan face
charges of attempted burglary
and conspiracy and solicitation.
They have all been released
from jail on $11,504 bond each.

State jobless rate


hits 13-year high


ORIANDO Florida's lat-
est unemployment figures
show jobless rates reaching
a 13-year high.
While Washington's bank
bailout offers some eventual
hope for Floridians, a Univer-
sity of Central Florida econo-
mist predicts it could take
months for that relief to be
felt in the employment sector.
"The big picture as it
applies to us is the Fed try-
ing to shore up the founda-
tions of the entire U.S. econ-
omy," said Sean Snaith,
director of UCF's Institute for
Economic Competitiveness.
"Ifs the insecurity in the finan-
cial sector that's led to this
credit crunch and the housing
crisis that is at the root of all
Florida's problems. This gov-
ernment plan is ultimately
going to help Florida's econ-
omy begin to recover as well."


The Agency for Workforce
Development reported
Florida's unemployment rate
at 6.5 in August, a 0.4 per-
centage point spike from
July's revised rate and the
highest rate for the state since
January 1995. Statewide, the
figures mean that 606,000 peo-
ple are unemployed out of a
work force of about 9.3 mil-
lion.
Florida's jobless rate is 0.4
percentage points higher than
the national average of 6.1 per-
cent.

report is available at

Competitiveness. He is a

New program to help



lost find way home


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

The Nassau County Sheriffs
Office is working with several
local organizations to implement
a program that would help
police identify, and return home,
adults with special needs who
may have wandered away.
Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves recalled an
elderly man with Alzheimer's
disease who went missing from
his home and was later found
alive in St. Augustine.
"He got confused and lost
and.wandered off," Seagraves
said. 'Through the year we do
get some of those calls."
Caretakers can register peo-
ple with special needs, be it
Alzheimer's disease, autism or
mental disability, with the 'Take
Me Home" program.
Seagraves said the depart-
ment is working with the Asso-
ciation for Retarded Citizens of.
Nassau County, the Nassau
County Council on Aging, the
University of Florida Center for
Autism, the Nassau County


Loved ones and
guardians can rest
a little easier'
FAYE JOHNSON
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF
ARC/NASSAU COUNTY

Autism Foundation and Ben's
Place, Inc. to implement the pro-
gram.
'"There's an application (the
caretaker) fills out and we take
photographs and attach it to
their file ... and then we can put
them into the system so the offi-
cers on the street will be famil-
iar with them and able to iden-
tify those who might be found
out-wandering," Seagraves said.
Faye Johnson, executive
director of ARC/Nassau
County, said she is planning to
introduce the program to her
clients at their annual meeting
on Oct. 24, and she's encour-
aging everyone to sign up.
The ARC/Nassau County
building on US 17 will also serve


as one of the "input stations"
where people can register for
the program.
"We can get all the neces-
sary forms and take pictures of
them and forward it to the sher-
iff's office," she said.
Information in each regis-
trant's file will include a photo-
graph, name, date of. birth,
address and caregiver contact
information. If a deputy encoun-
ters someone they suspect may
be lost, the database can be
checked, making it easier for
the deputy to assist the individ-
ual.
"Loved ones and guardians
can rest a little easier ... every-
thing is very confidential,"
Johnson said. "If it were my
family, I would want anything
that might help locate them and
bring them home, whatever it
took ... our president and our
board are very excited about
this."

the program, contact the

St. Johns River water


district keeps tax rate


PALATKA- The St. Johns
River Water Management
District's Governing Board
adopted its fiscal year 2008-9
budget, retaining the agency's
tax rate at 0.4158 mills for the
fiscal year that begins Oct. 1.
Under a 0.4158 millage rate
- 41.58 cents for every $1,000
of assessed property value -
the owner of a $200,000 house
who claims homestead exemp-
tion would pay $62.37 per year
in property taxes to the dis-
trict.
The board also gave final
approval to a $375.7 million
budget, which represents a
$69.8 million decrease from
the current budget. The
decrease is attributed to reduc-
tions in ad valorem revenues,
as well as a 39.3 percent reduc-
tion in new state revenues.
"This spending plan
enables us to balance our need
to protect and restore our
water resources while also
being fiscally conservative,"
said Governing Board
Chairman David Graham of
Jacksonville. '"The board's goal

doing so in the most fiscally
efficient manner possible. I
believe we have done that."
The budget includes:
*A $75 million reduction
in the land acquisition pro-
gram, as the district does not
anticipate significant acquisi-
tions at this time.
*A 39.4 percent decrease
in spending for water resour-
ces development because sev-
eral Florida Forever funded
projects are near completion.
$62 million to fund alter-
native water supply projects
with state trust funds and dis-
trict matching funds.
$70 million for the Lower
St. Johns River Basin program,
which is $1.5 million less than
the current year's funding due
to reduced state funding.
$11.5 million for the
Middle St. Johns River Basin
program, which is a 4.7 per-
cent reduction from the cur-
rent year's funding.
$2.55 million for the
Upper St. Johns River Basin
prograni, which is slightly
more than the current fund-
ing level and lower than pre-
vious years. I

13.5 hours by rail


- on the hard seats


MEREDITH WILSON
For the News-Leader
I need to write down these
thoughts while they are fresh
on my mind. This experience
is continually overwhelming
in the moment, yet post-
exhaustion and thankfulness
for a safe arrival quickly dim
real-time memories. So, in Car
2 of the T104 train to Beijing, I
will try to capture the atmos-
phere and experience of
Chinese train travel.
Upon entering the train'
station, my senses are on high
alert. While I wheel my faith-
ful suitcase and lug my ever-
heavy backpack, I am con-
stantly focusing on not hitting
my fellow travelers while also
trying to identify which
Chinese characters are point-
ing the way to my loading
platform. Once I make it to
my waiting room, I momentar-
ily pause and scan a huge
space containing 300 or more
people, waiting for three or
four different trains. Many
people are seated on the floor,
leaning on their bags, playing
cards with their traveling-
mates or eating dinner. There
are no seats left for me when I
get to the room, so I claim a
spot near the wall and perch
on top of my rolling suitcase.
It's times like these I am
distinctly aware of how differ-
ent I look from the Chinese
people some foreigners do
use the train system, but it is
still rare that I run into a

Wilson as soone as my Chioutnese
About an
hour before
the train leaves, people began
to queue in front of the plat-
form entrance. My motto is
"to move when the Chinese
do," so as soon as my Chinese
travelers begin to line up, I
line up too. If they pull out
their tickets, I pull out mine.
I've found the "herd mentali-
ty" and the "Would you jump
off a cliff if everyone else
did?" theory to work heavily
in my favor here in China.
Once the gate opens, we,
as a group, begin shuffling
forward. I am pushing my
rolling suitcase, returning col-
lege students are carrying
huge, square bags full of bed
linens and clothes, older men
and women are maneuvering

pans. All of us are heading the
same direction towards the
train at the SAME time. So
the shuffle of 210 Chinese and
one blonde slowly make their
way towards the narrowing
boarding entrance.
Once I get on the train, my
ticket can conduct me to one
of four "classes" described by
the accommodations they
offer for the traveler. First,
soft sleepers, the most expen-
sive, cost anywhere from
$100-200; holders of such tick-
ets are the high rollers of the
Chinese train-travel world.
They boast of two sets of
bunk beds with room to sit up
straight and their own door!
According to my American
friends, it's the only way to
travel overnight.
However, I found my
favored class to be the hard-
sleeper cars. According to my
Chinese friends, the soft
sleeper is not worth the extra
money (hard sleepers range
from $35-50). So for my first
overnight, 12-hour train ride
from Beijing to Xi'an, I found
myself squished on the top of
a set-of-three bunk beds.


County


"Second-class," or hard sleep-
ers, are the harder beds, no
doo, and no sitting-up room.
However, putting my perma-
nent proneness aside, I thor-
oughly enjoyed being eight
feet above the ground, rolling
with the rhythm of the train. I
would spread out, arrange my
valuables in strategic places
close to my ears and hands
and would have a decent
night's sleep.

these seats, only around $5
cheaper than hard sleepers,
they are definitely a step
.down from having a bed!
They do have softer seats
(hence the name) and are a
step up from the last and
cheapest way of train travel.
The hard-seat section is
exactly where I am seated
now. Due to the high number
of travelers and scarcity of
prime seating, I had to forgo
my favored hard sleeper for
its younger stepsister, the
hard seat, for $26. Instead of
stretching out, I find myself

am currently worried that the
boy beside me will discover a
blonde head on his shoulder
around midnight. Each hard-
seat car seats around 100 peo-

watch as the train rushes past

Where, and what, is the Purple Heart Trail?


north from Florida
and notice this sign
as soon as you cross
into Georgia? I travel the route
quite frequently and every
time I see it my curiosity level
spikes. I sometimes wondered
if I got off Exit 1 would I see
some big flashy tourist display
directing me to the infamous
Purple Heart Trail.
As the daughter of a
Korean War veteran, I've
spent years looking at old pho-
tos of my dad in his late teens
and early 20's at various
stages of his naval tenure as a
hospital corpsman. I chuckled
at the pictures of his gradua-
tion from Great Lakes and
laughed when he described
being dumbfounded as a Navy
corpsman he would be
attached to the Marine Corps
and headed for Camp
Pendleton. Then sobriety
would take hold as he'd recap
his tour in Korea when he'd
treat the war wounded which
always outweighed good
memories of friends and hap-
pier times. '
Navy memorabilia still
graces the walls of his home;
the picture of the ship he was
once assigned to, the now-

yes,


because of my father's experi-
ences, I am aware of the crite-
ria for a person being present-
ed this presidential award, but
I truly never really knew of its
origin.
My inquisitiveness had
finally reached its peak. It was
time I found out about this
mysterious designation on the
highway called the Purple
Heart Trail. My first stop was
to query local veterans and I
got some interesting answers.
However, the most frequent
response was, "You know I've
seen that sign for years, but
never really knew what it
meant." Needless to say, that
response and the conflicting
stories of its inception sent me


on a fact-finding excursion.
What I found was too much
information to share in whole,
but I do hope to highlight
some of the answers of who,
what, when, where and why
behind this prestigious desig-
nation.
During my research I
found out the Military Order
of the Purple Heart is the only
organization chartered by
Congress to represent mili-
tary veterans awarded the
Purple Heart. The Purple
Heart Trail concept was estab-
lished by this creditable
organization to be a symbolic
trail throughout all 50 states
and the territories of Puerto
Rico and Guam.
By marking these trails
with appropriate signage it
would represent the tangible
symbols of our free will and
the ability to get up and go
anywhere,.anytime. Many
believe this free choice is
taken for granted by a lot of
people. History shows the
independence we enjoy as
Americans has been earned
through the sacrifice of mil-
lions. Patriots have repeatedly
shed blood and died in
defense of two simple, yet
very meaningful words: free-

dom and liberty. The Purple
Heart Trail roadside displays
are intended as a reminder to
us that freedom is not free. It
is a hope that these prominent
signs will stimulate thought
and discussion among adults
and children about American
heritage, opening eyes to a
legacy long earned through
battle and sacrifice.
Even after discovering the
strategy behind' their mission
I still wondered why the pow-
ers to be hadn't chosen anoth-
er phrase to display, i.e., "The
Freedom Trail" or "The Trail
Towards Liberty," and after
more research I found out
why.
The Purple Heart is the
oldest military decoration still
in use and was the first to
honor the comes' o 6 soldier.
This purple heart-ishaped
scrap of cloth inscribed with
"Merit" was awarded to the
brave and deserving. It was
once designated the Badge of
Military Meritfand established
by Commarider-in-Chief of the
Continental Armyr Gei."'
George Washingt6io during
the Revolutioniary War.'
General Washington's order of
Aug. 7, 1782, stated, "Let it be
known that he whio wears the
military order of the purple -
heart has given of his blood in
the defense of his homeland
and shall forever be revered
by his fellow countrymen..."


In 1921, Gen. John
Pershing, Army Chief of Staff,
began organizing the revival
of Washington's Badge of
Military Merit. With the assis-
tance of Gen. Douglas
MacArthur some 10 years
after Pershing's initial efforts,
but in time for the 200th
Anniversary of Washington's
birth, MacArthur finalized the
renewal of the nation's oldest
military decoration. It took on
a new name the Purple
Heart and on Feb. 22, 1932,
the U.S. War Department
instated the decoration. The
medal in the shape of a purple
heart bordered with gold con-
tains the bust of Washington
in the center and the
Washington coat-of-arms at
the top.
During World War II, the
Vietnam War and Korean War
the Purple Heart was often
awarded "on the spot" at the
actual site of a wounding or
death of a soldier. Field com-
manders would also engage in
"bedside presentations" enter-
ing a hospital with a box of
Purple Hearts and pinning
them on the pillows of the,
wounded. Service members
were frequently known to
leave hospitals unofficially,
returning in haste to rejoin
their comrades in battle. For
all of these reasons it was a
common occurrence for the
Purple Heart to be omitted


from many service records
and to this day, many records
still do not reflect it being
awarded.
Even though the Purple
Heart Trail has not yet
reached all 50 states, whenev-
er I see this notable highway
sign I think of my dad, forever
my hero, who just recently
passed away. Do you have
someone you think of when
you see the sign boldly stat-
ing, "Purple Heart Trail?" A
family member or an old
acquaintance?
Let's hope you have no
direct knowledge of someone
having been injured or dying
in war.
For those traveling the few
miles to and from Florida and
Georgia or'for those longer
cross-country trips, seeing
this sign might now bring
more meaning to your trip
throughout our vast country
where sacrifices are many, but
where freedom and liberty
still reign.

Making peace with yourself


suspect that many of us have ghosts of one
kind or another. Spectral images that keep
us awake at night or bewitch us'by day.
The unanswered question that lingers and
silently whispers, "What if?" The keening
moments of doubt that haunt us and taunt us
and sneer that our lives are meaningless, that
we accomplish nothing but stealing air on our
way in, dirt on our way out.
Mitch Albom, best-selling author of
Tuesday with Morrie, has clambered onto the
shoulders of giants like Hemingway, Fauilkner,
Welty and Ellison with his novel, the five peo-
ple you meet in heaven. Albom's slim novel
about what happens in the moments after
death is the most profound reading experience
I've ever had.
We're all connected, from the most humble
to the most high. In Albom's achingly beautiful
interpretation of heaven, each of us will
encounter five people with whom we've
crossed paths in life. Each of them holds a tiny
piece of the mortal puzzle of our existence.
Only when number five reveals the final piece
can we comprehend what hidden purpose our
mortal flesh served and the lives it most inti-
mately touched along the way. Albom's book is
a 196-page journey to the heart of God.
I set the book aside after I finished reading
it. The final scene reminded me of someone I
knew a long time ago, a ghost of my own, one
that's been with me for 36 years.,
He was a wounded 19-year-old Marine in a
U.S. Navy hospital ward one raw winter nearly
40 years ago. I was an 18-year-old medical
corpsman. A sniper's bullet paralyzed him
from the neck down arid he was in my care. I

Joe Palmer Thousand-yard stare, man.
Don't waste your time on him. He ain't coming'
back.
I was young and ambitious and determined
to save the world. Hadn't I been trained.to
fight a war in the medical wards that was sim-
ply a continuation of the one in the bush? I
wouldn't let him just give up on me. I would
make him want to live. Where there's life
there's hope. He had no other injury but for
the small, circular healing wound in his neck
that severed his young spine. We could beat
that. He could go home.
No matter how hard I tried, the only place
my quadriplegic Marine intended to go was to
his grave. All day long and through the inter-
minable night watch, he lay there and stared
off into a distant place that perhaps was the
repository of all his shattered hopes and
dreams. I ministered to him with the best
training our government gave me. I talked to
him and told him dirty jokes and asked him
about his family. I saw my reflection in eyes


that never closed and tried harder. I begged
and cajoled and threatened. And each passing
day was exactly like the one before.
In time, God help me, I came to resent this
broken soldier, thinking of him as a quitter,
not worthy of my precious time. I started
avoiding all but necessary contact with him,
and as time passed, I just wanted him to get on
with his dying. And there was one moment,
may God forgive me, where I considered the
unthinkable as a merciful favor to him. I'm
glad I didn't. It's been-hard enough to live with
his ghost, as is.
Since then, I've lived my life seeking out
professions where I can help others. Penance,
maybe. Though I cannot recall his name, the
face of my particular ghost is lodged in my
mind like the bullet that felled him. I've spent a
lifetime trying to make peace with him for my
uncaring and heartless neglect. If I could
remember his name, I would speak it aloud
and beg his forgiveness.
If I'm so blessed as to make it to heaven, I
hope he will be one of those five people who
greet me. When he asks me why I was in such
distress for so long, I'l confess that I once
wronged a dying soldier whose name I can't
recall. That I've been trying to make peace
with him ever since. Then he'll remind me of
his name and put his hand on my shoulder
and, in the words of one of Mitch Albom's five
people we meet in heaven, he'll tell me that
you have peace when you make it with your-
self.

Financial sham
Boiling down all the rhetoric in the financial
sham being orchestrated and played out before
our eyes on TV each day, I have come to an
observation and a conclusion:
Congress must be involved up to its eyeballs
in this fiasco because there are no hearings as to
what happened, who was involved and who is to
blame.
From my perspective, most of them should be
in jail or censured over how they have turned the
banks into being pawns for patronage while bank-
rupting the Treasury.
I conclude the "financial catastrophe" is a
sham because of the following:
The Federal Reserve chief is estimating the
whole problem as one of about $700 billion: He
based that upon the estimate of $14 trillion of
outstanding mortgages with about 5 percent
being in foreclosure (equaling the $700 billion.)
.There is a problem, not because of the foreclo-
sures, but because the overlying mortgage bonds
cannot be liquidated in the open market at a fair
price. The last free market bid for bonds he quot-
ed was 20 cents on the dollar. Surely even fore-
closed mortgages are worth more than 20 percent
of their face value!
Now then, the- Fed chief's and the
Administration's plan is for the government to use
$700 billion to buy up pools of mortgages.
According to them, this will provide "liquidity" to
the market and shore up the asset base of the
banks and hedge funds that own mortgages. In


other words, the government will bid to buy.
mortgages from investors. Let me ask a rhetor-
ical question, if the government comes to market
to buy mortgage bonds, does anyone think the
holders of the good mortgages is going to include
for sale the good ones in a package with bad
ones and accept say 50 cents on the dollar? No,
the government will get all of the non-performing
or soon to be non-performing loans as the
investors will cheerfully unload the junk on the
government while keeping the cream for them-
selves.
Meanwhile, the buying of any mortgages by
the government is not necessary. All that is need-
ed is a guarantee for.the mortgages: The gov-
ernment will guarantee their repayment at full
value. If any become foreclosed, the government
becomes the holder of the mortgage and they can
negotiate a new contract with the mortgagee or
sell the property for cash. Even for cash, the
entire mortgage is surely not .worth zero!
Concurrently, the government needs to suspend
the requirement of mark to market accounting for
financial assets held, say for five years, till most
of this works itself out.
That is my opinion. If we rush pell-mell into let-
ting the politicians have $700 billionrto toss to their
pals, we might have the greatest transfer of pub-
lic money in history.
As Nancy Reagan used to say about drugs, just
say no to any deal with the banks that gives away
$700 billion of the taxpayer money.

was a paid consultant.
I City commission should listen to its staff,
listen to its AAC, listen to the public and then
listen to common sense. The city recently re-
ratified the airport's rules and regulations and
fee structure. There was no public protest like
there was in the past. Staff might view this as
success, but what it really shows is public frus-
tration. Again, it was not always this way.
For example, approximately 18 months ago,
I spoke to city commissioners regarding the
Minimum Operating Standards for
Commercial Users at the Fernandina Beach
Municipal Airport. I said that it was important
to create a level playing field for all airport
users, but that the proposed onerous standards
were a disincentive to business development
Despite public outcry at both the AAC and city
commission, Airport Manager Johnson suc-
cessfully sold to the AAC and city commission
that he needed the document passed as is to


get business to come. There has been no
business development. Johnson won't take
the blame for his flawed policies, so he now
blames McGill Aviation's fuel pricing for his
failure.
Airport Manager Johnson likes to say that
"it takes everybody working together for the
airport to be successful" and that "all users of
the airport need to contribute to its success."
In 1998, McGill Aviation paid $24,991.45 to the
city in rent That has increased to $87,622.35 in
2007, and so far we have paid $72,229.90 this
year. No aeronautical user has contributed
more to the success of this airport than McGill
Aviation.
We have done this despite the repeated
attacks, lawsuits and lies from our landlord and
business partner and despite the fact that the
city has spent over $1 million of taxpayers' dol-
lars trying to rid Fernandina Beach of McGill
Aviation.
We are looking forward to the arbitrator's
final written award that should come early next
year. More importantly, we look forward to
continuing to serve the flying public for many
years to come in our efficient, friendly, honest
and safe manner. Most important, we look for-
ward to reform that encourages business
development.

Allegiance' supports two orphans


This is my first column since I was in
Baptist Nassau several days in
September. It took time to recuperate
and get back to my pen and legal pad.
Thanks for the cards and visits and your
phone calls. They all. helped to pass the
time away. My grandchildren stayed
close by I loved that. Other family
and friends brought "sunshine" when !
they knocked at the door and entered
smiling. Home visits have been nice also
and, my, the goodies were very much
appreciated. Flowers and wishes for a
speedy recovery were very special,
especially from my longtime boss, Foy
Maloy, and other co-workers for over 34
years. The long distance phone calls
were very special and still are. I also
enjoyed the TV services from First
Baptist Church and visits from my pas-
tor, Jeff Overton.
"Allegiance" of Amelia Baptist
Church continues to be on mission.
Their teams have made monthly
pledges to support a child in an orphan-
age in Haiti. As if that is not incredible
enough, they also pledged sufficient
funds to support a child in an orphanage
in India.
They each committed to sacrifice a
Starbuck's moolatte or Dairy Queen
treat or simply to save up babysitting
money to meet this monthly commit-
ment for at least one year. Don't you
love these students?
Their fall semester began Aug. 24 at
a new time, 6:15-7:45 p.m. They had a
meet and greet Aug. 24 and a welcome
back to school party Aug. 31 at Richard
and Julie Smith's home. "Allegiance"
will sing the first Sunday of each month
at Amelia Baptist Church in the worship
service. They are scheduled to sing at
the Peck Center Dec. 5.
"Allegiance" thanks each one who
has prayed for their students by name
and supported them financially. Over
the last few weeks, they have presented
the gospel through music eight times.
They sang at Mount Olive Baptist in
Live Oak. Then they shared at
Northwest Baptist in Gainesville, where
Al and Lisa Paulson are serving. They
presented a Wednesday concert at
Pisgah Forest Baptist Church and a
Sunday evening concert at Woodland
Hills Baptist in Asheville, N.C. They
shared music at the Delorme Bible
Church in West Virginia during two
revival services.
Holiday bazaar is coming fast (Oct.
31 and Nov. 1) at First Presbyterian

ing the summer days in Fernandina

Upward basketball comes to First
Baptist Church. It is more than a sport.
It's Upward basketball and cheerlead-
ing. Upward is an evangelistic sports
ministry specifically designed for
kindergarten through sixth grade boys
and girls that promotes salvation, char-
acter and self-esteem in every child.
Every child plays and learns and is a
winner.
Upward accomplishes those goals by
providing an evaluation system that pro-
motes equal teams and opportunities,
establishing a one-hour practice and
game each week and implementing a
substitution system for each team,
allowing every child equal playing time,
creating the opportunity for every child
to learn the skills of the game. Games
will begin soon.
Dee Dee Johns was the special
speaker for the mission groups RAs and
GAs at First Baptist Church Aug. 20.
Dee Dee and George, along with their
two sons, are missionaries in Honduras.
Their ministry is called The Johns
Family Ministry. Please pray for them
and this special ministry in the days
ahead.
First Baptist Church celebrated back
to school with a picnic at Peters Point. .
Barbecue, food and fellowship were
enjoyed as well asgames and prizes for
the children, sponsored by the youth
group.
It was "Reed" week recently at First
Baptist Church as the church family cel-
ebrated. the Rev. Mike Reed's seventh-
year anniversary. The church let
Brother Mike, Rhonda, Daniel, Stephen
and Caroline know how much they are
loved and how much their ministry is
appreciated. Mike is very talented and


he is one of the greatest ministers of
music in my book.
The Rev.-Jeff Overton of First Baptist
Church reminds us in his Pastor's
Ponderings the following: "Have you
,ever given much thought to the things
that God uses? I mean we can get pretty
egotistical at times and think that God
just can't make it without us. It is hum-
bling to take the time and make a list of
the things that God can use. Take
Moses, for instance. He stuttered and
stammered when God called him so
God used a staff. That staff became a
reminder to Moses that God can use
anything he wants to use. How about
David? He turned down the armor of
Saul and went after Goliath with a sling
and a few stones. I realize that since the
babble belonged.to the Lord, the sling
and stones were in his hands even more
so than David's. The stone brought
about God's desired result.
"We could walk through the Bible
and see the many times God used some-
thing we would consider small or out of
the ordinary a donkey speaks, an ax
head floats, a river cleanses a leper and
on and on. There is something consis-
tent about these objects. They never
argued with God; they just did what
they were supposed to do and God used
it for His glory. Isn't that a great sermon
for us today? Let the objects preach to
us for a moment. Listen to their mes-
sage of humility. They may not have
looked like much. Many may have
looked down upon them but, in the
Master's hand, they were used for His
glory. Shouldn't that be our desire to
be used for His glory? Perhaps now is
the time to stop arguing arid debating
with God and do what the staff and the
stone did just do what God com-
mands and let the glory be His. May
God bless you as you serve Him.'
Celebrate Recovery'at First Baptist
Church celebrated its first anniversary
Sept. 19 with a fish fry and special guest
speakers.
First Baptist Church celebrated its
homecoming Sept. 21 with "This Hope"
in concert and dinner on the grounds.
Five Points Baptist Church celebrated
its homecoming September 21 with
Charles and Sharmon Kirkus as speak-
ers and dinner on the grounds.
We will certainly miss Brother Frank
Camarotti, who resigned at Blackrock
Baptist Church a few weeks ago. He and
wife Diane will leave by October.
"May our Great Heavenly Father
continue to watch over us and keep us
in His loving care."

Trapped by ignorance but saved


H -


Bang, bang, bang. My mom pounded on
the window but there was no response.
Bang, bang, bang, she tried again but
still my little brother didn't seem to get
it. "Open the door," she said, trying her best
not to panic. But all she got was a little smile.
From door to door she went, pulling han-
dles and trying to get my brother to do his
part, but nothing was working. He was locked
in and didn't even know it.
It all started many years ago when my
mom, who was typically running late for my
brother's therapy appointments, had set out to
be on time that day. After buckling my brother
in and throwing her purse and keys onto the
driver's seat, she closed the door arid made her
way to the other side of the car. That's when'
she realized what had happened. Scott, that's
my brother, was only about three or four years
old at the time and unable to walk because he'


was born with cerebral palsy.
Apart from the use of his
two legs and left hand Scott is
completely normal and very
smart, yet somehow on this
particular day, perhaps
because of his age, he just
didn't get it. "Lift the button,"
my mom pled with him, con-
cerned by the heat and lack
ULPIT of air in the car, but all he did
NOTES was smile.
-... Only God knows what was
going through his mind, but
Pastor one thing was for sure if
)b Goyette something didn't happen
soon he would be in real dan-


N



Rol


ger.
So, my mom finally did what she had to do.
Into the house she went, leaving Scott all alone,


and she called the police. I'm sure by the time
they got there and began prying on the door,
my brother started to realize that something
was up. Yet, he never did figure out that the
button for his release was right there beside
him. All he had to do was cooperate with the
person standing on the outside.
As you might imagine, after it was all over
with and Scott was out of harm's way, we were
all able to laugh about his little smile in
response to my mom's frantic attempts to get
him to unlock the door.
When I think back on the time of my broth-
er's captivity, though he didn't know he was
captive, I can't help but consider my own life.
How many times have people been knocking
on the glass and I've just smiled back. I know
none of us like to admit it, but sometimes we're
just clueless to our real condition.
One thing is for sure, if we are trapped and


by grace

don't know it, it's only a matter of time before
things heat up and life starts getting really
uncomfortable. Either way, I thank God for sur-
rounding me with His persistent love. Isn't it
interesting how our deliverance is often right
within our own grasp, but if we don't recognize
that we need it, we won't reach out for it? Yeah
I know,, while on one hand it's true that none of
us can save ourselves, it's a work of God's
grace, on the other hand it's also true that God
is looking for our cooperation and response. As
for me, I've decided to pay a little closer atten-
tion to my part in the whole thing.
I leave you with the words of the apostle
Peter, spoken on the day of Pentecost some
2,000 years ago, Acts 2:40b, "Save yourselves
from this crooked generation."

RELIGION NOTES


Study Circle project
When it comes to race,
what are the most serious
challenges facing our commu-
nity? Where is there common
ground, and where do we dif-
fer? Do you think that
Americans talk about racism,
prejudice, and race relations
only in response to a crisis or
incident? Study circles on race
relations change that.
The Voices of Diversity in
Nassau County, sponsored
jointly by New Zion
Missionary Baptist Church
'and St Peter's Episcopal
Church, are planning another
round of study circles this fall.
A study circle is a racially, eth-
nically diverse group of 8-12
people with two trained impar-
tial facilitators who meet for
two hours weekly over a five-
week period to talk about an
issue. The idea is to share
concerns and viewpoints and
to look for ways to make
things better.
The circles will meet week-
ly, early October through
early November, and will be
scheduled according to partic-
ipants' availability. An Action
Forum gathering of all partici-
pants will be held Nov. 15
from 10 a.m.-noon to plan
community action projects..,i. '
Registratioiifforms are-'/ A,


available at the St Peter's
church office, or e-mail sesil-
verio@bellsouth.net. The
deadline is Sept. 30. For infor-
mation about Study Circles

lo What is wrong with my
SSt. Augustinegrass. It
loo ed beautiful last year but I
have had to replace portions
of it for the last few years. BT
A: It was very helpful for
you to bring in a section of the
lawn to me, which included
the soil, roots, stolen and
blades. In your particular
instance, you have been water-
ing deeply but less often and
this has created a good, deep
root structure.
However, I
found fungal
lesions on
many of the
root struc-
S tures. This
fungal dam-
age reduces
the ability of
the roots to
GARDEN absorb suffi-
TALg cient
amounts of
h water and
Becky Jordi nutrients
from the soil.
This will cause the blade (leaf)
to wilt and appear to be suffer-
ing from lack of water. Adding
more water only exacerbates
the situation and the cycle of
decline begins. In addition,
many of the grass blades had
gray leaf spot. This fungal dis-
ease loves warm, wet condi-
tions, which often occurs dur-
ing the months between May
and September. Gray leaf spot
can potentially kill large patch-
es of St. Augustinegrass. Once
those areas have died, they
must be replaced.
Certai.ncultivars (Classic,
Seville, and Raleigh) of St.
Augustinegrass appear to be
less susceptible to gray leaf
spot, therefore you might con-
sider using one of them as a
replacement. The St.
Augustine grass used most
often in Northeast Florida is

and won a .20 gauge Mossburg shotgun.
Mike Sanchez won second place and took
home a top-of-the-line gas grill. Katfish Croft
and Karl Owens tied for third place and
won new shooting vests.
'First place honors in the women's divi-
sion went to Camille Yates, who won a year's
membership in the club. Merry Raber came
in second and Dana Paschal won third.


The Nassau County Gator Club came'
closer to its goal of providing scholar-
ships to every county senior accepted
into the University of Florida thanks to the
first annual Great Gator Shootout held
Sept. 13.
The clay shooting competition was held
at the Amelia Shotgun Sports Club in Yulee
and attracted Seminoles, Hurricanes,
Bulldogs and lots of Gators from many
areas of Florida and Georgia.


PIRATE INVASION


SUBMITTED
The students at Fernandina Beach Middle School
were treated to some pirate fun for Talk Like A Pirate
Day Sept. 19. The PTO arranged with the Fernandina
Pirates Club to create some pirate excitement for the
students. Two members of the club, Mad Dog and
Aspasia videotaped the morning announcements with
theregular student co-anchors in the Media Room,
with the help of the school librarian, Brenda Carr.
Mad Dog is pictured with Carr, above. Principal Dr.
John Mazzella considered the early morning video
announcement a warning shot across their bow for a
full-blown pirate invasion of the lunchroom later that
day.


Scoring first and second in the junior
division were Brian. Morris and younger
brother Wesley, who came to the event with
their grandfather, Gary Baker.
Gator Club President Tommy Roberts
thanked all Nassau County Gator Club
members who volunteered their time and
the community at large, and noted that with
the generous support of 29 sponsors the
club's scholarship goals are becoming a
reality.


During a year when the
Nassau County Library System
.has experienced a 26 percent
reduction in the book budget,
the Friends of the Library,
Fernandina Beach acknowl-
edged that the young adult col-
lection for ages 13 to 18 would
slip further behind without
some immediate attention.
Responding to a call for
grant applications, the Friends
of the Library submitted two
requests and received $4,000
from the Rayonier Foundation
to help address the dilemma of
meager and outdated materials
and involve teens in librarY-
activities.
The Nassau County Library
System serves a population esti-
mated at 68,000 in 2006, which
includes roughly 4,200 students
in grades eight through 12.
Dawn Bostwick, director of the
Nassau Public Library System,
stated that "although the vast
majority of these teens have
library cards, they are severe-
ly under-represented in their
use of the library, in part due to
the lack of reading resources in
categories specifically designed
to engage them."
Michelle Forde, the Nassau


County youth librarian, is mak-
ing a concerted effort to
increase teen involvement in
the library and, by extension,
the community through the
establishment of Teen Advisory
Boards and the promotion of
young adult volunteerism.
The Fernandina Beach Teen.
Advisory Board helps to plan,
direct and organize library
activities that engage teens in
volunteering their time, having
fun, and learning. Last year,
more than 1,400 residents of all
ages experienced the Haunted
Library organized and man-
aged "by the Teen Advisory
Board. Plans are now under
way, for the second annual
Haunted Library event, sched-
uled for Friday and Saturday,
Oct' 24 and 25.
With the support of the
Rayonier Foundation, commu-
nity support for the Book Sale
fundraiser, and gifts from organ-
izations and individuals, the
Friends of the Library is able to
donate funds for the purchase
of much-needed materials dur-
ing what is hoped to be a tem-
porary budget shortfall. For

BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Pirate boys and girls cross coun-
try teams were victorious Tuesday when
they hosted three county teams and
Baker County on the Egans Creek
Greenway.
The Lady Pirates had 23 points,
Baker County3l had 85, Hilliard had 87
and West Nassau had 92. For the boys,
FBHS won with 30 points while Baker
had 51, Yulee 98, Hilliard 103 and West
Nassau 115.
Laridon Kovalick finished first for
the boys. The FBHS junior finished in
17:10. Teammate Jazz Tomassetti was'
second with a time of 17:39 and Baker's
Luke Kennedy was third with a 17:58.
FBHS's Chris Keffer (18:31) was
fourth and teammates Darren Bunch
(19:35) was ninth, Bradley Bunch
(20:00) was 11th and Taylor White
(21:08) finished 19th.
. Yulee's Joey Shiver placed fifth with
a time of 19:05 and fellow Hornet Josh
Scopino (19:06) was seventh.
For the girls, FBHS newcomers'
Stephanie Straser (17:42),andtwin sis-.
ter Cliris'dra a tiraser (22:069tfished
first and second, respectively.
Finishing in the top 10 for FBHS
were Deidre Stillwagner, 24:05, fourth;
Lindsay Aldridge, 25:07, sixth; and
Emma Feakes, 26:00, 10th.'
"We are off to a strong start," FBHS
Coach Mark Durr said. "We have grown
in numbers with about 25 runners. This
is the largest group I've ever had. I real-
ly believe running cross country helps
the athlete become a stronger person
both inside and outside of the class-
room. This is- a great group that is
responding well to the program." -

S, girls win

St Charles, Ill., a suburb of Chicago..
Stephanie Strasser won the small school
division girls title in the Embry-Riddle
Cross Country Classic, a 5,000m run
held Sept. 20 in Daytona Beach. She,
posted a time of 20:05.67. Christina
Strasser finished 12th with a time of
24:08.84. The siblings are juniors. Shelby
Kittrell, a senior, finished 27th with a
time of 26:48.02, Stillwagner (29:15.43)
was 46th, Aldridge (29:29.75) was 48th,
Feakes (30:41.44) was 51st and Jenny
Bridwell (32:56.85) was 57th. The Lady
Pirates finished fourth overall.
"We have been extremely fortunate
to have many newcomers this year,
among them Stephanie and Christina
Strasser," Durr said. "These two girls
are both excellent runners. Stephanie
won the Embry-Riddle event ... with a
time that would have easily won the big
school division as well as college divi-
sion.
"We've been trying to come up with
a nickname but I think we'll just have to
go with Superwoman as Stephanie is
the strongest kid we've seen. Not only
are these two excellent runners, they are
excellent teammates. Th,-\. along cith
.uhr captain.sJazz Tomna-setti and Shelby''
Kittrell, have been workilig so hard and
staying extremely positive as well as
encouraging everyone to do their best
in practice and on meet day."
At the Embry-Riddle meet,
Tomassetti finished 20th with a time of
21:17.53. Keffer (22:00.12) was 27th,
Bradley Bunch (22:54.66) was 32nd,

these athletes come together," Durr

said. It really has a family feel to it, not
to mention we have three sets of twins
on the team, which definitely adds to
the family feel.
"Darren and Bradley Bunch have
been working as l'Tard as aniyofe and
their times have been coming dow-n.
These guys are so coachable, they do
everything asked of them and with the
most pleasant attitude, but on meet day
they are all business as they tracked
down and passed several runners in the
stretch. '
"Chris Keffer, another new addition.
is another big, strong athlete who has
also been leading through example.
Chris is a basketball player who is turn-
ing out to be one of our best runners. We
are so glad he came out for the team."

Athletes can be depressed also


since Young has been
sidelined for a cou-
ple of weeks nowv,
recovering from an
injury to his knee he sus-
tained opening weekend
against the Jaguars. However,
it appears that some mental
healing may be needed by the
Titans' quarterback as well.
Apparently, Young still:
loves football but has become
disenchanted about being a'
football player and the criti-
cisms and boos that come
with being put on an NFL
pedestal.
Earlier in the week, his
mother, Felicia Young, had
said the quarterback had indi-
cated he didn't want to play!
football anymore because f
all the negativity he faced .
She even told a local reporter
he's "hurting inside and out."
Young left the Jaguar ]'.'
game under unusual circum-
stances. Not playing particu-
larly well that day, he was
greeted on the sideline by a
chorus of boos by fans upset
at his second interception.
Young threw his helmet to
the ground and then refused
to go back into the game.
Coach Jeff Fisher coun-
seled Young, who then went
back in on the next change of
possession. A few plays later,
Jaguars linebacker Daryl
Smith crashed into his left
knee, his MCL was torn and
he was done for at least four
weeks.
After the game, Young
sped off from the Titans' facil-
ity. Hours after the game,
teammates, coaches and even
Young's mother were still
unable to locate the quarter-
back and police were called in
to help search for him.
Concerns were raised for
Young's therapist, Sheila


SPORTS
MEDICINE
GREGORY


Peters, a
clinical psy-
chologist
who confid-
ed in Fisher
that the
quarterback
had men-
tioned sui-
cide several
times before
driving away
from his
home with a
gun.
Fisher


SMITH, M.D. voiced these
-....-.- concerns.to
the Nashville
police, stating that he was
concerned about "his moods,
his emotions, he wants to quit
anti he mentioned suicide sev-
eral times."
,> Young was found several
hours later in a restaurant
watching football. His car was
searched and a gun was
found, although it was
unloaded.
The Titans are now offi-
cially declining to comment
on details of the report and.
are blaming the media for
overblowing the whole thing.
Young did speak with the
media and said he didn't real-
ize he still had to tell his
mother where he was going
and said, "I was never
depressed."
I am not so sure.
One might question how
someone who plays sports for
a living and makes millions
doing it could become clini-
cally depressed. However, by
no means are athletes
immune to depression.
NHL star Pat LaFontaine,
NBA guard Kendall Gill and
Olympic diver Wendy
Williams are among other
professional athletes who


have battled depression.
Fortunately, depression in
athletes is now more readily
recognized and the leagues
have confidential player assis-
tance programs to see that
they get the proper treatment.
Unfortunately, many ath-
letes are reluctant to seek
treatment for depression
because they feel it is a sign
of weakness or worry about
the label attached to those
with mental illness.
Within the general popula-
tion, it is estimated that some
8 percent have clinical depres-
sion with women being more
likely affected than men.
Depression in athletes has
been shown to be associated
as well with vigorous over-
training. A few years ago,
Oakland Raider Barrett
Robins was a no-show for the
Super Bowl, having checked
himself into a local hospital
for his depression. A study by
the Canadian Football League
further showed players who
had sustained three concus-
sions during their careers
were twice as likely to devel-
op depression in their lifetime
when compared to the gener-
al population.

BETH JONES
News-Leader

Aaron Williams returned the opening kick-
off 80 yards for a touchdown to put the
Fernandina Beach Middle School Pirates up
6-0 over the Yulee Hornets Tuesday.
Derrick Henry, Yulee's 6-foot-3, 205-pound
eighth grader, answered with a 40-yard run to
even the score at 6-0 with 6:46 left in the first
quarter.
The Pirates reclaimed the lead when quar-
terback Ben Venerdi scored on a keeper. He also
scored the two-point conversion to push the
Pirates ahead 14-6 with 3:40 left in the first
quarter.
That would be the last of the scoring for the
Pirates, who succumbed to the Yulee Hornets
50-14. The Hornets are 3-0 on the season.
Henry reeled in a pass from Yulee quarter-
back Austin Wagnor for a 30-yard TD reception
with 2:33 left in the first quarter, but the
Hornets' PAT attempt failed, leaving them trail-
ing the Pirates 14-12.


The Hornets took the lead in the second
quarter when Henry darted 65 yards for anoth-
er touchdown, his third of five TDs on the night.
Cameron Jones' PAT run put Yulee up for good.
They led 20-14 with 6:11 left in the second quar-
ter.
Henry returned a punt 72 yards with a little
over a minute left in the first half. Wagnor con-
nected with Dylan Turner for the two-point
conversion and the Hornets had a 28-14 lead at
halftime.
On Yulee's opening drive of the second half,

Running offshore too costly? There are other options


SPECIAL
Triggerfish will readily take a bucktail jig, tipped with a fresh local squid. The author
landed this keeper Amelia Island triggerfish.


A rea offshore drift fishermen are
reporting good catches of grouper,
red snapper, flounder and triggerfish
at both artificial and natural reefs. If
you find running to some of the far offshore
fish havens is becoming too expensive with
the rising costs of fuel, there are options.
Schultz's Fish Market offers excellent bot-
tom fishing action and can be accessed by
small boats. Launch your small fishing boat at
the Talbot Island public boat ramp and navi-
gate the Nassau Sound at the southern tip of
Amelia Island. Be sure to hug close to the
beach and stay away from where the surf is
breaking. Watch your fish finder and stay in
water depths of over three feet. Shultz's Fish
Market is located some five miles offshore of
the popular inlet with coordinates 30 degrees
30.03'/81 degrees 15.80'. Here, bottom fisher-
men will find a massive hard bottom with
numerous rock ledges. If the seas begin to
kick up, you only have a short run back to
calmer waters.
KBY artificial reef is also located only a few
miles northeast of the St. Marys inlet and is
also accessible by small fishing boats. Drift
fishermen will find broken concrete along the
bottom where red snapper and sea bass are
plentiful. Coordinates are 30 degrees 46.65'/81
degrees 17.32'.
Jetty redfish are simply wearing out fisher-
men who wish to tangle with a 20-- to 30-pound
red drum. Weekend fishermen' should find


plenty of red drum action at
the tip of the St. Marys south
jetty rocks during the slower
moving tides. Fish on the bot-
tom with cut whiting, ladyfish
or large fresh shrimp. Be
sure to revive your redfish
properly before releasing
your catch.
Very seldom will fishing
ON THE in these deep waters produce
w D keeper-size red drum. Red
WA1 ER drum must measure at least
TERRY 18 inches in length and must
not measure over 27 inches
LACOSS in length from the tip of the
nose to the tip of the tail,
which is "pinched."
Sheepshead should also be running this
weekend during the last of the falling and the
first of incoming tides. Fish close to the jetty
rocks with either fiddler crabs or barnacles.
Tides this weekend will find a high tide
arriving at 7:56 a.m. and a low tide arriving at
1:50 p.m. Saturday and at the mouth of the St.
Marys inlet.
The News-Leader encourages local anglers to
submit photographs of their catches. E-mail pho-
tos to bjones@ fbnewsleader.com, mail them to
P.O. Box 766, Fernandina Beach, FL 32035, or
drop them by the office at 511 Ash St. in
Fernandina Beach. Call 261-3696 for details.
