SURF'S WAY UP


Surfers walk through
a high tide that
neared structures, .
above, and chewed
up shoreline last
week on Amelia
Island as nor'easter
conditions were gen-
erated by offshore
storms. Heavy equip-
ment is poised, right,
south of Jasmine to
finish a $12 million
beach construction
project intended to
provide sufficient
sand to hold the
tides at bay for
awhile.


Court costs are on the rise


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Doing business at the courthouse
went up this year, and not just in
Nassau County. Throughout the state,
residents are paying more to file civil
cases, paying more for traffic tickets
and being ordered to pay more court
costs upon conviction of misde-
meanor and felony offenses.
The increase is a result of SB 1790,
passed this summer to ostensibly
make tip for decreases in state fund-
ing for the judicial branch of govern-


ment and the Florida Department of
Corrections.
"I guess this is just a more con-
sistent way to do it and make sure
that we're all doing the same thing on
the same page," said Elaine Coates of
the Nassau County Clerk of Courts
Office of the state-regulated court
fees.
"We're given direction as to where
the money goes, if it's a mandatory
court cost... it all depends on the leg-
islature."
According to The Florida Bar
News, the bill is projected to raise


about $75 million in funding specifi-
cally to be allocated to the courts,
state attorneys, public defenders and
related agencies.
Some of the increases include the
cost of applying for the services of a
public defender, which defendants
are ordered to pay upon conviction of
a crime. That fee has increased by
25 percent. Fines charged for DUI
arrests doubled, from $250 to $500 to
$500 to $1,000. The cost of court
mediation increased by 50 percent

City water slide



falls victim to



'financial crisis'


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
A water slide at Main Beach will
not open until at least April 2010,
according to a letter to the city man-
ager from the investors behind the
project.
William Doyle said in the letter that
the group's lender "is no longer inter-
ested in offering traditional lending on
the project" because of the "financial
crisis and economic outlook."
But the group, called Slippery
When Wet, LLC, said it would like to go
ahead with construction of a conces-
sion stand at the leased space to open
next April.
The 10,000-square-foot property is
located at Main Beach Park north of


Concession stand might

the skate park on Tarpon Avenue. The
group pays $100 a year to lease the
city property.
Doyle said Tuesday the partners
were planning to put up their own
money for the concession stand as a
good-faith gesture.
"We're committed to it, so we're
going to stick to it," said Doyle. The
partners, he said, have put up money
for the "soft costs" such as environ-
mental permits, and the city has

ANGELA DAUGHTRY ,
NewsLeadcer -
A certificate of occupancy for the
new First Baptist Church on Eighth
Street has been delayed because some
of the structure's walls do not meet
city fire code regulations.
But city personnel and church offi-
cials did not agree on how to satisfy
those regulations at a meeting at City
Hall on Thursday or how to cover
the estimated $50,000 cost.
Interim Building Official Charles
Barr said he could not "in good con-
science" approve the structure as it is
right now. As building official, Barr is
responsible for signing the certificate
of occupancy. He replaced John
Santoloci, who was fired last summer.
"There's not a single building official
in Northeast Florida who would sign off
on this as it is," said Barr.
Jerry Fountain, representing the
church's architectural firm Foreman,
Seeley & Fountain, said his company
had been working extensively with con-
tractor Elkins* Construction of
Jacksonville to address Barr's recom-
mendations. He noted that his firm had
done a lot of code research and found
that building and fire codes can some-
times conflict.
Fountain agreed with Barr that the
church did not meet fire code in 3-5

ing official in Northeast
Florida who would sign

percent of its walls, which was "fairly
significant in this stage of construc-
tion."
But, said Fountain, "I very much
think that we far exceeded the techni-
cal code" because 93 percent of the
walls are 7-hour rated, meaning the
length of time they can withstand fire
and inhibit its spread.
Fountain also said the problem
could have easily been corrected if
caught earlier.
I Interim Fire Marshal Jason
Higginbotham, who did some of the
fire inspections, said the building is
safe according to the fire department's
code. Former fire marshal Jeffrey
Bunch also did at least one inspection
for "fire separation/stopping" in 2007,
giving partial approval, according to
city records. Bunch resigned from the

New state attorney



sets Nassau changes


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
The newly elected State
Attorney for the Fourth Judicial
Circuit, Angela Corey, will
replace retiring State Attorney
Harry Shorstein in January, and
she is already identifying
changes she'll make in the
department's offices in Nassau,
Duval and Clay counties.
Corey said she is working
with Daniel J. McCarthy, who
will serve as her chief assistant,
to begin her administration of
the State Attorney's Office.
.Corey said she plans to be more
visible in Nassau County.
"I want to elevate the stature
of the office in Nassau County
... I want to be visible and avail-
able in Nassau County, and I
hope that within a year or so
we have in place attorneys who
are rooted in Nassau County,"
Corey said. "I want attorneys
who just love it, who know the
community, to not just be send-
ing lawyers up there for a few
months and then moving them
somewhere else."
Corey confirmed she does



Consumer

confidence

increases
University ofFlorida
GAINESVILLE Con-
sumer confidence among
Floridians rose in September,
marking the third month of
increases since the index hit
its all-time low in June.
"Despite the turmoil in the
economy, Floridians are over-
all a little more upbeat about
the economy than last
month," said Chris McCarty,
director of UF's Survey
Research Center at the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research.
"Consumers in Florida
have reason, to be gloomy,"
he said. "Housing prices have
fallen almost 28 percent from,.
their 'peak. .in June 200(.,'
Unemployment in Florida for
August is now estimated to
be 6.5 percent, the highest
since 1995. And tourism in
Florida is down based on air
traffic data from airports such
as Orlando and Miami."
"There are some positives
here in Florida, there are
signs that housing sales are,
stabilizing in some Florida
markets and while it will be a
long time before prices climb
back to their peak, I believe
prices in manyparts of the
state are at or near bottom."

Attorney Stephen Bledsoe, cur-
rently the director of the Nassau

She has not released the
name of Bledsoe's replacement,
but confirmed she has "some-

Stephen Bledsoe, director of
the Nassau County State Attor-
ney' Office, said the new fines,
which have only been in place
now for about three months,
have not yet had any significant
impact on his budget.
Coates said the bill was made
possible by an amendment to
the state constitution in 2004
that required the state to help
financially support the court sys-
tem. Since then, the legislature
has set the cost of filing fees,
public defender liens and other
court costs for courts through-

"(SB 1790) probably has
been the largest increase in
court costs since 2004," Coates
said. "'That increase goes to the
state."
And because the bill was
passed to make up for an exist-
ing shortfall in the budget, the
extra money is not expected to
pay for many extras but will pre-
sumably help make ends meet
for the judiciary.
In addition to raising court
costs, the bill also increases the
salaries of the five Criminal
Conflict and Civil Regional
Counsel from $80,000 to
$100,000 and it allows them to
hire part-time assistants who
continue to maintain a private

fire department in July:
City building inspector
David Herron did the majority
of the general inspections,
which numbered more than
40, starting in the fall of 2007.
He inspected the building for
proper framing, plumbing,
electrical and other features.
First Baptist pastor the Rev.
Jeff Overton, who called for
the meeting, said he and his
congregation are eager to get
into the new church as quick-
ly as possible.
"I do not feel there is a safe-
ty issue here," said Overton.
"We want to get people in
there. ... I believe it is a very
safe building."
Overton said that although
the church had paid the city
its required impact fees, he
felt it was an excessive amount
considering the long delay.
Overton had said in July that
he believed the church would
be open by late August.
Brett Relick, project man-
ager for Elkins Construction,
said it will take a minimum of
four to five weeks of work once
the contractor has a plan in
place to correct the flaws.
Relick also said it will cost
at least $50,000 to correct the
areas that need to be fire-rated;

BUSINESS


IN BRIEF


Radiologists
join hospital
All diagnostic imaging
studies at Baptist Medical
Center Nassau are now being
performed by radiologists
with Mori, Bean and Brooks,
the largest radiological profes-
sional association in '
Jacksonville. Mori, Bean and
Brooks has more than 50
board-certified radiologists,
many with advanced special-
ties including neuroradiology,
musculoskeletal radiology,
mammogra-
phy and oth-
ers.
"This new
arrangement
will be very
beneficial to
our patients
Borbely and physi-
cians," said
Jim Mayo, ,
administrator. "In addition to
having radiologists on-site
Monday through Friday, we
now have instant access to
additional radiological experts
24 hours a day, seven days a
week, using digital imaging
and electronic communication
systems installed at the hospi-
tal last year. This is extremely
useful for after-hours emer-
gency procedures."
Dr. Michael Borbely will
serve as medical director of
imaging for Baptist Nassau.
He graduated from
Georgetown University
School of Medicine and com-
pleted residencies and fellow-
ships in diagnostic radiology
and.body imaging at Duke'
University Medical Center in
Durham, N.C., and Johns
Hopkins University Hospital
in Baltimore.


One change that has
already been implemented is
the procedure for mammogra-
phy screening and diagnostic
exams. The new system is
intended to improve the level
of care and reduce wait times
for these important exams.
Screening exams (no current
known breast problems) are
now done at Nassau, and then
are transmitted via computer
to the new Pavillion Breast
Center to be interpreted by
the experts at Mori, Bean and
Brooks radiology.

The most difficult part about her job at Yulee
Family Practice, says Starr Marie Durrance, is
"being vertically challenged."
Her diminutive stature does not deter
Durrance from fulfilling her role as a certified
medical assistant with compassion and a pleas-
ant demeanor.
Kim Munday, clinical supervisor, says Starr
does whatever it takes to get the job done with
a positive attitude and accuracy.
"Starr is a very caring and kind person who
shows great skill and knowledge in the medical
field. Her name suits her well ... she is a true
star!"
The bubbly mother of two has duties rang-
ing from patient processing and vital signs to
administering injections and assisting with all
aspects of patient care.
A West Palm Beach native, Durrance moved
here in fifth grade with her parents, Mike and
Barbara Oakes. After receiving her medical
assistant certification from Advanced Career
Training in Jacksonville, Durrance worked in
pediatrics for two years before coming to Yulee
Family Practice.
"I always knew I wanted to be a nurse or
something to help people," said Durrance.
"Right now I'nm a floater so I just help out
wherever I'm needed."

Bringing peace and energy to others


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader

After 10 years of martial arts training in
Austin, Texas, Jim Jones picked up a qi gong
tape and began to practice the ancient Chinese
discipline daily.
"It created peace and wholeness within
(me) that the hard external body workouts
could never achieve," said Jones.
"I didn't have the slightest hint of a cold for
two years after I started practicing this rather
simple form and I would be a much older-feel-
ing individual without it."
Jones's personal success with qi (pro-
nounced "chi") gong led him to formally ,
study Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM,
at the Academy of Oriental Medicine in Austin,
one of 60 colleges in the U.S. offering the cur-
riculum.
Attaining a master's degree in 2000, he has
also trained independently with other masters
of qi gong outside the academic world.
After visiting friends in Fernandina Beach
and appreciating the peaceful ambiance here,
Jones left the hectic pace of Atlanta behind,
moving to Amelia Island just over three years
ago.
He operates the Acupuncture Center of
Fernandina where he practices TCM, including
acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulation and
Oriental bodywork as well as qi gong healing.
"Qi Gong means 'life force discipline,'"
explains Jones. "The practice is generally body


movement (or ..
stillness) in
coordination
with controlled
breath and
mental focus
or imaging." -
"I try to
teach some qi -
gong to all
patients, even-
tually," says
Jones.
"'Someone
could learn a
highly signifi-
cant form in HEATHER A PERRY/NEWS-LEADER
less than five Jim Jones performs the
minutes." "nine threading breaths"
It's not the movement of Qi Gong.
learning, it's
the doing that
makes the difference, he adds.
Qi gong has become increasingly popular in
recent years. In the Qi Gong Consensus
Report produced in November 2005 by a panel
of 30 nationally and internationally recognized
experts, qi gong programs were shown to pro-
vide numerous physical and psychological ben-
efits and to contribute to the well-being of
those who participate regularly.
The panel also noted qi gong can be benefi-
cial for everyone, including people who are
chronically ill, frail older adults and those with


disabilities.
In addition to teaching his patients qi gong,


Jones also offers acupuncture and Chinese
herbal medicine to complete the trilogy of
TCM, which he says is not complimentary or
alternative, but a whole system that stands by
itself
Jones stresses the importance of partner-
ship with his patients, saying that while tradi-
tional Western medicine operates on a "fixing
what's wrong" concept, TCM asks the patient
to participate not just in their own healing but
in attaining wellness.
"It's health-based rather than illness-
based," said Jones, who believes that qi gong
starts one on an inner observation which helps
them become more aware of what's going on
in their bodies as they discover their inner
energy..
During his leisure hours, Jones enjoys
cooking dishes from India, a country he has
visited many times and tries to return to
often. But it is being in nature and practicing
qi gong that heads his list of favorite
activities.

Adoption campaign launched


TALLAHASSEE -The state
of Florida has launched a new
campaign, "Explore Adoption,"
aimed at promoting the benefits
of public adoption and urging
families to consider creating or
expanding their families by
adopting a child who is older,
disabled or part of a sibling
group.
Each year, about 3,000
Florida children become avail-
able for adoption when a court
permanently severs ties to their
birth parents due to abuse, neg-
lect or abandonment. Of those,
40 percent are adopted by rela-
tives and another 40 percent
are adopted by their foster par-
ents. The remaining children
must be matched to a family
previously unknown to them,
which is the goal of the
"Explore Adoption" initiative.
The "Explore Adoption" ini-
tiative is fueled by the findings
of a new poll that outlines
Floridians' perception of pub-
lic adoption. The results hold
out hope that families willing.
to adopt can bi fond it th. state,'.
does a better job of educatit'g
potential parents about the ben-
efits of public adoption and cor-
recting misperceptions. Among
the benefits:
Adoption costs little or
nothing. Virtually all costs to
adopt a child from the public
system the home study, attor-
neys' fees, court costs and train-
ing are borne by the state.
Many private adoptions can cost
the adoptive family $20,000 or
more.
Is secure. Children are not
made available for public adop-
tion until a judge has terminat-
ed their birth parents' rights.
This is a key education point,
because 83 percent of
Floridians polled said they
would be more likely to adopt if
they knew there were no
chance the child would be
returned to the birth parent.
Provides financial sup-
ports. Children adopted
through the public system qual-
ify for free health care until they
turn 18, free college tuition at
any state university, communi-
ty college or trade school and
may qualify for monthly finan-
cial assistance, depending on
the child's needs. More than 70
percent of those polled said
they were more likely to adopt



Triathlon

may affect


traffic
Nearly 500 athletes will par-
ticipate in the first Atlantic Coast
Triathlon at Amelia Island on
Saturday beginning at 7 a.m. at
Main Beach.
The 56-mile course will cover
South Fletcher, Amelia Island
Parkway, A1A, Old Nassauville
Road, Buccaneer Trail and First
Coast Highway.
There will be no complete
road closures during the event,
but A1A between Old
Nassauville Road and Amelia
Island Parkway, including the
Shave Bridge, will be limited to
one lane in each direction from
7:30-11:30 a.m.
Major intersections around
Amelia Island and Yulee will be
controlled by local law enforce-
ment during the event.
DRC Sports, the company
managing the event, expects all
bicycles from the event to be
off the roads by 1 p.m.


when they learned about the
health care and tuition benefits,
and 63 percent said they would
be more likely to adopt if they
knew there was monthly finan-
cial assistance.
Can be speedy. The entire
process from orientation,
training, background checks,
and home study, to getting


matched with a child or chil-
dren often can be accom-
plished in about nine months.

VIEWPOINT/SEcRETARY OF STATE KURT S. BROWNING


Voter verification law


Available


*la


There have been many
misstatements and confusion
over the recent implementa-
tion of the Voter Verification
law otherwise known as the
"No-Match-No Vote" law. The
S Divisionof Elections' mission
de 'Ialong with local supervisors
of elections is to register vot-
ers and make sure that they
can cast a ballot on Election
Day that will be counted. And
just to clarify, this law will not
affect the status of the 10.7
million already registered vot-
ers. The law will apply to all
new applications received on
or after Sept. 8.
The Voter Verification law
regarding new voter registra-
tion applications became
effective January 2006. It was
in effect until December 2007
7y grades when a court first ordered the
department to stop the almost
two-year-old process. That
ruling was overturned on
appeal, and the law was re-
implemented Sept. 8. The law
is being implemented now
because the court order deny-
ing the injunction became ,
final in July. The implementa-
tion was delayed by pending
litigation until June 2008, wait-
ing for U.S. Department of,
... ** Justice pre-clearance in July.
2008, time needed to repro-
w* gram the system to automati-
ools cally notice voters and set up
revised procedures and the
fe 205 time needed to prepare super-
ssau.org visors who were otherwise
t engaged in administering the
2008 primary election.
Unlike what activists are
saying, obvious errors, includ-
ing nicknames or typos will
be resolved and that applicant
will be registered to vote.
Every voter registration appli-
cant must provide (if issued)
a Florida driver's license num-
ber, state identification card
number or the last four digits

not a provisional ballot. A
voter can show a driver's
license, a Florida identifica-
tion card from DSHMV, a
passport, a debit or credit
card, military identification,
student identification, retire-
ment center identification,
neighborhood association
identification,and public assis-
tance identification on
Election Day,
This law does not target
specific groups. The U.S.
Department of Justice
reviewed the law in 2005, and
after revisions to the law in
2007 and 2008, found that the
law did not deny or abridge
the right to vote on account of
race, color or membership in
a language minority group.
ID required and checked
at the polls is used solely to
confirm the voter's identity,
not to verify the voter's ID
number or address. The pho-
tograph on the ID is com-
pared to the person standing
before the poll worker and the
signature on the ID is com-
pared to the signature on
record.
The courts have held that
the Voter Verification law is
. valid because the state has a
"compelling" interest to have
accurate voter rolls. And
despite what others have said,
the state provided examples
of fraudulent applications that.
had come through the system
because the law had been
temporarily stopped. This is a
good law that will help our
voter rolls achieve more accu-
racy and less fraud, while cre-
ating minimal inconvenience
for prospective voters. We
encourage you to register
*'now;review )your application
before submissi6on,and call
your local supervisor if you
have any questions. See you
on Election Day.

The identification number is

against the Florida driver's
license database or the Social
Security Administration data-
base. If that number does not
match, the Bureau of Voter

typographical errors or a dif-
ference between a nickname
and formal name based on
available records and the
actual voter registration appli-
cation.
If the number still cannot
be matched, the applicant is
notified to provide a photo-'

the applicant may show their
identification in person. If
proof is provided before the

VIEWPOINT/JOE GERRHY/FERNANDINA BEACH



Citv needs to act -


turned to the "musical buildings" pro-
posal that has been before the city
commission for the last year or so.
We both agreed that it made no sense for the
city to purchase the First Baptist Church,
(what would the city do with it?) and we
agreed the post office should be restored, but
who should pay for the restoration was a
source of disagreement I feel that the federal
government allowed the building to reach its
present state of disrepair, and it should be held
responsible to bring it back up to standards.
The opposing view is that the city should pay
for the repairs and occupy the building as a
City Hall.
I have suggested in the past, and will sug-
gest again, the city needs to create a vision
involving these buildings, spend the money to
get an accurate cost of completing the vision
(including acquisition and parking costs, annu-
al building upkeep costs, renovation costs,
yearly utility costs, etc.) put it on the ballot and
let the citizens vote yes or no. There is enough
time to get these cost estimates put together,
present them to the citizens and allow spirited
debate for the April election. I bet this will
bring some people to the polls!
I then read last Wednesday's News-Leader
about the city finally submitting a grant appli-
cation for a Community Development Block
Grant from the federal government. A block
\ grant is for low-income neighborhoods that
need improvement in infrastructure, such as
drainage, sidewalks and road surfacing. One
city official said it was too expensive to tap into
the storm sewer system, so an alternate sys-
tem was developed. Too expensive? Are you
kidding me? Is this the same city that is able to
give its employees an average of 5.5-6 percent
salary increase every year, twice the average


increase in the pri
tor? The same city
gives its top official
imum of seven we
time off every yea
same city that is c
plating a building
acquisition that wi
the tens of million
lars? Too expensive

If you live in a
hood that has pro]
storm drainage, sidewalks and streets
resurfaced on a regular basis, the buil
swap may sound like a good idea. How
you live in an area that floods several i

higher priority, and a much better use

ment made in the city was in 2004, wh
drainage and road surfacing on First A
(south of Simmons Road) was address
several years of postponement.
Finally, we need to consider our pr
obligations. We have our own financiala
brewing in the city. Three years ago, t
borrowed $5.million to complete impr
ments to the marina. Some of that mon
to paying off existing debt, and the ba
was earmarked for improvements. We

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Savinglives and souls
Our church and church family may often 'b
the first to notice the bruised arms, the missed
services and the excuses for not coming to
Wednesday Bible study. These could be the sign
of domestic violence. If one out of four women are
victims of violence within their homes, then
please accept the fact that you attend worship
with someone who is abused.
Are. you prepared as a sanctuary for souls to
assist someone who is battered? Do you know
the signs and what to say? Have you as a church
or place of worship spoken out as a body against
the use of violence in any form whether it is
physical or verbal?
Often women who are victims of domestic
violence feel alone and abandoned and tha
includes by their God or higher power. Wha
better way to reinforce someone's beliefs than to
have their spiritual refuge also provide then
with safety and assistance. What better way to
denrfonstf'ateour fatih tthaibp.ltiRing it in action
to proactively tealih that violence against womei
is unacceptable.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness
Month. Spiritual leaders are urged to take this
month to speak to their congregation on thi
signs of domestic violence and the resources
available to those who suffer from this crime
Congregations should make it known within
their communities that victims who come for
ward will be believed, respected and assisted
Faith in action!
Micah's Place, the certified domestic vio
lence center for Nassau County, is available to
speak to Bible classes, congregations, an<

to act as well.

Marsh Lakes
Thank you, Barbara Gingher ("Landscapes,'
Sept. 24), for expressing how so many of us fee
about the carnage at the entrance of Marsh
Lakes. I live in the Villages of Marsh Lakes
where my neighbors and I have happily coexisted
for years, living in peace and tranquility in this
undisturbed bird paradise. At the present time
my next-door neighbors are in New York City foi
a week.
While out walking their little cairn terrier in
the neighborhood close to the construction site
that is beside (literally) the highway, there is nc
way to avoid the grating noise of machinery
clearing and toppling trees to make way for a new
shopping center. I don't hear this din inside my
own home, but it must be a constant problem foi
people who have homes very near the con
struction. Yesterday, out with my neighbor's
dog, I saw and heard a beautiful, mature pine tree
fall to earth with a crash. It's a crime against
nature of the first order, and someone will have
a huge karmic debt to pay. All I can say is, with
the economy so bad, why do we need yet anoth.
er shopping center and even more traffic on
A1A?

Shocking energy bill
I received my mail today and once again I am
shocked at my energy bill and wonder how I
can afford to pay it. Fuel for our vehicles is cost-
ing more and more and the cost to cool and heat
our homes continues to increase. Like most
Americans, I have to decide what I will cut from
my monthly budget to make ends meet. I have
to make hard decisions do I buy shoes for my
son or food for the table?
The local power company has raised it rates
over 120 percent in the past year. I know that coal
and natural gas used to generate electricity has
increased just like fuel at the pump but how can
we continue to pay these increasing costs? How
can I to afford anything for my family? How do
I keep from becoming one of the millions of
Americans who can no longer pay their mort-
gage? The discretionary income that I had a
year ago has now gone to Big Oil and my grow-
ing utility bill.

' JEFF PARKER/FLORIDA TODAY


No one wants to use the 'R' word but we are
u in a deep recession and it is proven that there is
a parallel between a strong economy and cheap
. energy. We need clean renewable energy now,
1 not 10 years fr6m now.
The oil companies are pressuring to drill off
r the coasts. How will that lower my energy bills?
e The benefits (if there are any) will not be felt for
years: Big Oil wants to advance future drilling in
Alaska but how will that help?
I recently read that only 12 percent of the oil
" that comes out of the ground makes it to the
1 United States and the rest is sent to other indus-
i trialized countries.
s I would love to know why gas prices rise
sharply every time there is the threat of a storm
s in the Gulf of Mexico and why does it take so
, long for the price at the pump to return to nor-
r mal when the storm threat subsides? Maybe it is
time to regulate gas prices and take oil off the
futures market. We should at least have a prod-
uct like oil regulated so that speculators cannot
manipulate the market.
, I hope that the Congress eliminates the tax
v breaks that oil companies currently enjoy against
the burden of most Americans. It would be nice
r to see $4 billion put into the infrastructure of this
- great country and put Americans back to work.
s Also, instead of giving $700 billion for a financial'
system bail out that assists the "fat cats" that
t made very bad business decisions, why don't
we help the mortgage holders who are truly the
i victims of this sub prime scandal.
The United States can end its dependence
i on foreign oil now and create jobs by concen-
trating on alternative energy sources. We need
z to advance windmill technology, convert fleet
vehicles to run on natural gas, bring the hydro-
gen fuel cell to market and install solar panels on
the roofs of every home. That would be a better
use of $700 billion in my opinion and it would also
keep billions of dollars in the hands of Americans
I at a time when we need it most.
The'financial industry bailout plan that has
t been introduced does not have the correct safe-
t guards in place and the overall plan still has
very big holes that will allow the corruption to
continue. It makes me sad to see my tax dollars
continue to rise as my property value falls. How
do politicians who have lost touch with the aver-
age American spend money that is not theirs? At
I times I feel just like Atlas from Greek mytholo-
gy with the weight of the world on my shoulders
and the only thing I can do is shrug.

Morelegacy
The U.S. Congress would have been well
advised to remember the words of Nancy Pelosi


when she became Speaker of the House of
Representatives. She said of Bush, "This man is
dangerous."
Once more the Congress and the nation have
been stampeded into a panicky, knee-jerk reac-
tion. The idiot in the White House who got it
wrong before and after 9/11, who got it wrong
during the Iraq war, who got it wrong after
Katrina, has gotten it wrong again over the finan-
cial crises. He has thrown billions of dollars of the
taxpayers' money away. It's the only thing he
seems to know how to do, except send troops to
their deaths. Our children's children will suffer
the consequences of this legacy.'
Why?'Because he hasn't fixed the problem,
and it's a problem he helped create. The problem
is massive greed coupled with a total failure of
productivity.
So we buy out all the liars and cheaters that
have become fat swifie on Wall Street. They
cheer and go right back to "business as usual."
The oil robber baron will sit on his ranch and
smirk. He managed to buy his last four months
in office. Then watch the ax fall. Look out
America! We haven't stopped a recession. We've
only made the depression worse.

Vote early
Every day I hear comments like "My vote
doesn't count," or "I can't get home from work
in time," or "It doesn't really make a difference".
Well, they are wrong. This year more than any
other year, our votes do count and they do make
a difference. Not just in the national arena but
also in the local and state arena. The six amend-
ments to the constitution of the State of Florida
will make a difference in your life make your
voice heard!
It's easy to vote "when you can get home in
time." Early voting starts Oct. 20 and goes
through Nov. 1, Monday through Saturday, from
9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Don't wait until the last minute
or stand in long lines on Nov. 4 vote early. The
ballot is long and has to be bubbled in you
know, color in the circles. This is more time-
consuming than the electronic forms we've use
in the past Go vote early!
Citizens shouldn't complain about who gets
elected if they won't take the time to vote. If you
want to make sure your voice is heard: 1) Make
sure you are registered with your correct address
and name by Oct 6; 2) Be an informed voter -
attend meetings and rallies and listen to both
sides to make sure your candidate is the right one
for you; and 3) vote early eliminate any chance
of not getting to the polls on Nov. 4.

MPO becomes TPO


What's in a name? "We want-
ed a name that conveys our
regional status, our role and
function," Dick Brown, First

POLITICS IN BRIEF









WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 1.2008 NEWS News-Leader


Effort to 'prevent home fires


A pot holder too close to a lit
burner or a space heater left on
overnight could be all it takes to
start a home fire. In fact, cook-
ing and heating are among the
leading causes of home fires in
the United States, according to
the National Fire Protection
Association.
That's why Nassau County
Fire Rescue is teaming up with
NFPA from Oct. 5-11 to urge
Nassau County residents to
"Prevent Home Fires" during
Fire Prevention Week.
This year's campaign focus-
es on preventing all the lead-
ing causes of home fires cook-
ing, heating and electrical
equipment, and smoking mate-
rials. Additionally, fire safety
educators will be teaching local


residents how to plan and prac-
tice escape from a home in case
a fire occurs.
According the latest
research from NFPA, more
than 2,500 people died in home
fires in the United States in
2006, and 12,500 were injured.
Fire departments responded to
396,000 home fires, which
accounted for 80 percent of civil-
ian deaths and 76 percent of
injuries that year.
"While the number of home
fires is daunting, the good news
is that many are easily pre-
ventable when residents take
simple steps to increase their
safety from fire," said Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper. "Whether it's
smoking outside the home,
keeping space heaters at least


three feet away from anything
that can burn, or staying in the
kitchen when you are using the
stovetop, there are easy things
you can do to keep your home
and family safe from fire."
Do you know how to keep
your home safe from fire haz-
ards? Reviewing the following
information and taking action
can help you "Prevent Home
Fires" during Fire Prevention
Week and year-round.
. Cooking: Stay in the
kitchen when you are frying,
grilling or broiling food. If you
leave the kitchen for even a
short period time, turn off the
stove.
Heating: Keep all things
that can burn, such as paper,
bedding or furniture, at least


three feet away from heating
equipment.
Electrical: Replace
cracked and damaged electri-
cal cords; use extension cords
for temporary wiring only.
Consider having additional cir-
cuits or receptacles added by a
qualified electrician.
Smoking: If you smoke,
smoke outside; wherever you
smoke, use deep, sturdy ash-
trays.
Fire Prevention Week is
actively supported by fire
departments'across the coun-
try. For 85 years fire depart-
ments have observed Fire
Prevention Week, making it the
longest running public health
and safety observance on
record.


Business owner dies

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


A 37-year-old Yulee man
died Sunday after a single-vehi-
cle motorcycle wreck in
Jacksonville.
David E. Stevenson, owner
of Stevenson Collision Center
in Hedges, reportedly was
traveling south on SR 105, the
Zoo Parkway, in the outside
lane about 5 p.m. when he
entered the inside lane and
lost control of his 2004 Harley
Davidson motorcycle.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Stevenson fell


off the bike and skidded onto
a paved U-turn driveway.
Stevenson and the motorcycle
traveled across a grass median
and ended up facing south on
SR 105, according to the acci-
dent report Stevenson was not
wearing a helmet
According to the report,
alcohol is not believed to be a
factor in the accident, which
happened close to the inter-

POLICE 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 suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the "We Tip" program 1-
800-78CRIME also allows
callers to leave anonymous tips.
Converters stolen
A motion-detector light and
eight catalytic converters were
reported stolen from a Callahan
auto parts store last week.
According to police, the alarm
company monitoring AB&B
Auto Parts failed to notify the
business owner or police when
an alarm activated at 12:40 a.m.
on Friday.
When owner Adriel
Thompson came to the store
about 8:30 a.m. Friday, he dis-
covered the motion light was
missing from outside the ware-
house and eight catalytic con-
verters had been stolen from a
metal bin on the property.
The estimated value of the
stolen items is about $1,000,
according to a police report.
Police believe the suspect or


suspects left the business by
way of Ratliff Road.
Thompson told investigators
he suspects an ex-employee
who was recently terminated
may have been involved in the
burglary, and a cigarette box
found on the property report-
edly was the same brand the
potential suspect smoked.
No arrests have been made
and the case remains under
investigation.
TV theft arrest
City police were able to
arrest one of three men report-,
edly seen taking a flat-screen
television from a North Fletcher
Avenue residence, early last
week.

on Sept. 22 shortly after a North
Fletcher resident called police
to report seeing three men
going into a neighboring house.
While she was on the phone
with police, the witness said she
saw the men running through
her back yard toward the beach
with a 27-inch flat-screen tele-
vision.
Police responded to the call
and apprehended Jones in the
Main Beach parking lot.

tified Jones as one of the men
they'd seen.

moved to the
other side of
the web to get
a better van-

That's when I
noticed the

was oblivious

intent on her

the life force
from her prey.
While she

the male found what he was
looking for, quickly coupled,
then scurried away. The female
still worked on the bee, seem-
ingly unaware of the greater
activity that she was also
involved in.
This male was a smart one,
or just a lucky one, catching a
female while she was preoccu-
pied. Otherwise, he ran the risk
of being consumed instead of
consummated -female spiders
are notoriously ill-mannered
with their partners. This quick
act of behavior captured on film
also gave the female spider a
reprieve from my moving plans
for her. Now I was curious.
When and where would she put
her egg case?
For a few days more I kept
watch on the spider, but found
no sign of eggs, or any other
males either. My husband
Bucko took matters in his own


hands, finally, and carefully used
the stick technique to move her
off the path and into the nearby
shrubs. The next day she was
back. This time, her web was
not across the path, but parallel
to it, allowing us an easy pas-
sage under it, if we were careful.
For awhile we continued to
tolerate the spider web near our
path, and from time to time, if I
found an ant or other convenient
bug I placed it in her web, as a
treat Every day a banana spider
builds a new web, and eventu-
ally these webs again crossed
our path.
After one evening's removal
with a stick, the spider decided
it was time to move perma-
nently. We've not seen her again,
but hopefully all is well, and by
now she will have laid her egg
case in some spot well away
from our harassment
We've got other banana spi-
ders in our yard, too, all in their
regular places in the vegetation
beside the pond, not bothering
anyone except the dragonflies,
which they seem to specialize in
catching. The storms and rain
marking the end of summer
have done nothing to deter
these spiders.
Each night no matter how
much their web deteriorates, by
morning they are all hard at
work reconstructing their prey-
catching device to their own sat-
isfaction.
Soon, I know, the banana spi-
ders will be gone again for
another year. Eventually the
females will each lay an egg
case with hundreds of babies in
a sheltered place. Then, having

fulfilled their short life's mis-
sion, the adult spiders will
die.
Many of the spider eggs,
however, will survive the win-
ter and hatch in the spring. It's
hard to find these spiders when
they are young, but if all goes
well, by next summer/early fall'
another crop of adults will


appear. As predictable as our
late summer storms, the web of
life will soon enough be visible
again, a cycle of life to admire

Hornets beat Warriors 12-6 in 0T


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Jonathan Knauss threw for the
tying touchdown and ran the game-
winner in Friday as the Hornets edged
the West Nassau Warriors 12-6 in over-
time. The victory pushed Yulee's
record to 2-1 overall (1-0 in District 3-
2A).
"I'm extremely proud of the team
and the coaching staff," said Bobby
Ramsay, head football coach at Yulee
High School. "We knew to beat a good
team like West Nassau we would have
to fight hard for four quarters. We did
that and then some.
"I really felt the defense played as
well as they could have. West Nassau,
had been averaging well over 300
yards of offense. To hold them to 129
yards and six points was a great
accomplishment.
"Offensively ... we still aren't con-
verting inside the 20 like we need to.
But again, we are moving the ball.
Our passing game has come a long
way in just a few weeks, but we still
have a long way to go."
Jeremy Deberry had 13 carries for
57 yards for Yulee. Justice Williams
had 98 yards receiving and 41 rushing.
Derrick Peterson reeled in the pass
from Knauss with 29 seconds left in
the game to knot the score at 6-6. Both
teams failed on their PAT attempts.
Yulee senior Demetrius Small had
two interceptions' and teammate
Marko Carrion had one. Terrill
McDonald had 10 tackles, Aaron
Favors had a quarterback sack and
two tackles for loss and Garrett Callis
had six tackles. Jacob Castellanos had
eight tackles, two for a loss, and a pass
breakup.
"We had several young players step
up, in particular on offense," Ramsay
said. "At one point we had five soph-
omores on the field offensively at the
same time. That's very encouraging as
far as the future is concerned.
' "We have to refocus on the rest of


the season now. We have Bolles this
week, which is as big of a challenge as
there is on our schedule.
"It feels great to be 1-0 in the dis-
trict."
Jamaal Jones scored on a two-yard
run with 5:28 left in the second quar-
ter to put the Warriors on the score-
board.
Jake Litecky returned the opening
kickoff of the second half to the 50-
yard line, but three plays later, Yulee
fumbled. One play later, the Warriors
fumbled and Yulee junior Mychal
Culpepper recovered it. On the ensu-
ing drive, Conner Petty's pass was
intercepted by Warrior Telvin White.
Carrion intercepted a pass from
Warrior quarterback Robby Hem with
four minutes left in the third quarter.
Knauss stepped in to fill the shoes
of Petty, who was injured in the wan-
ing seconds of the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter, Yulee drove
to West Nassau's 18-yard line but
Culpepper's 34-yard field goal attempt
fell short. The Hornet defense held to
give the offense another opportunity
to tie the score. The Hornets drove to
the Warrior 27-yard line and stalled.
The defense held West Nassau
again and the Hornet offense respond-
ed with Peterson's 11-yard TD recep-
tion with 29 seconds left in the game.
The Warriors had just 20 seconds
left to try to break the tie, but Hern's
pass on first down was intercepted by
Small. Yulee's Knauss took a knee to
run out the clock and send the game
into overtime.
The Warriors, starting at the 10-
yard line,-were backed up to the 20 on
a penalty. Hern cut the distance to 16
on a keeper, but his pass on second
down was intercepted by Small.
A Warrior penalty pushed the
Hornets to the five-yard line on their
overtime possession. On first-and-five
Knass ran it in to seal the victory for
Yulee.
The Hornets travel to Bolles Friday.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.

Tornadoes

blow by

Pirates 19-17
BETH JONES
News-Leader

A Bradford County inter-
ception killed a late drive for
the Pirates Friday in the dis-.
trict opener at Pirate Field. The
Tornadoes held on for a 19-17
victory.
"That one hurt," said Ed
"Puggy" Brown, Fernandina
Beach High School head foot-
ball coach.
The interception thrown by
senior quarterback Emory
Wingard was his fourth on the
night. The Pirates also fumbled
once.
"That did us in," Brown said.
"You can't turn the ball over
five times and expect to win
ballgames. We had opportuni-
ties. We just didn't get it done.
We have to protect the foot-
ball."
The Pirates struck first,
scoring on a Max Shaw field
goal in the first quarter.
Bradford answered with a
touchdown to take a 7-3 lead.
In the second quarter, Fer-
nandina reclaimed the lead
when Wingard connected with
Domonic Jones for a 10-yard
TD pass. Shaw provided the
extra point. The Pirates were
up 10-7.
Bradford took a 13-10 lead
with a second-quarter TD, but
the PAT failed. The Tornadoes
were up 13-10 at halftime.
Darius Pollard reeled in a
Wingard pass for a 15-yard TD
in the third quarter and, with
Shaw's PAT, the Pirates pushed
ahead 17-13. Bradford scored
again in the third quarter to
take the lead again, this time for
good.
Tahj Kimble had 22 rushes
for 81 yards. Wingard was 11-
of-25 for 135 yards. Jones reeled
in six of those passes for 56
yards, Tai Alford had one for 38
yards and Kimble had three
catches for 26 yards. Pollard's
lone reception was for a TD.
Sean McNamee recorded
five tackles and an assist,
Harrison Yonn and Charlie
Booker had six stops apiece
and Booker had an assist.
Michael Yonn had three tackles
and three assists. Hunter
Daniels had four tackles,
Kimble had three tackles and
one assist and Pollard had
three tackles and one assist.
The Pirates (2-2, 0-1 in the
district) continue their district
campaign Friday when they
travel to Keystone Heights, a
winner over Interlachen Friday.

University of Georgia football
teams were forced to reset
their aim on what should have
been the first and foremost
target to begin with: An SEC
East championship.
You could almost feel the
giddiness vibrating through
the Deep South Thursday
night after previously No. 1
ranked USC fell on the road
to Oregon State. As far as
Gator and Bulldog fans were
concerned, the stars were
aligning for perhaps a No. 1
versus No. 2 in Jacksonville,
with the winner cruising
through Atlanta in December
'and right on down 1-95 South
to Miami in January to claim
what was rightfully theirs.
Then came the monkey
wrenches better known as
Ole Miss and Alabama, teams
who were picked to finish
middle of the pack in the SEC
West this season, to steal the
UF and UGA Gatorade cool-
ers before they could be filled
for the inevitable celebratory


dump.
In
Gainesville,
Florida head
coach Urban
Meyer's plan
to win failed
miserably
after what
must have
been a pre-
SPORTS game meal
of Kentucky
TiLdFried
Chicken left
JOH N L. Gator play-
CRAWFORD ers unable to
hold onto the
ball against
Ole Miss in the third quarter.
Three turnovers, a blown cov-
erage, missed tackles, a
blocked extra point and the
failure to convert on fourth-
and-one ensured every facet
of Meyer's plan went unful-
filled.
By the way, word has it
that North Korean ruler Kim
Jong-il called Tebow up the
gut on the fourth-and-one.
But that's neither here nor
there.
The Gators were thor-
oughly outplayed by the
Rebels and it would have
been a travesty of sorts had
the home team pulled out the
victory.
Up in Athens, the Georgia
faithful took a page out of the
unofficial Lou "Granny
Clampett" Holtz pre-game


plan to win and attempted to
"black out" the Crimson Tide.
Apparently, they didn't read
that Florida beat Granny's
South Carolina team 54-17
when the Gamecocks did that
in 2001. The result this time?
A 31-0 Alabama blowout by
halftime, a 41-30 loss to the
CrimsonTide and a trip back
to the old drawing board for
head coach Mark Richt and
company, which brings me
back to the original point.
Both Meyer and Richt
should now erase words like
"undefeated" and "national
championship" and "Miami"
and "Orange Bowl" from their
drawing boards and under-
score, star and circle the term
"SEC East." Because whether
it was complacency or over-
confidence that led to the hic-
cups in Athens and
Gainesville last weekend is a
moot point now.
The Gators and Bulldogs
can forget about who's doing
what on the national stage
and set their sights on who's
doing what in the East divi-
sion of the SEC. Then, with
any luck, they can squarely
focus on the winner of the
SEC West and a trip to the
Georgia Dome for a shot at
what now appears to be an
elusive conference crown.

Youth Fitness Ride Oct18
Youth fitness is a national crisis. More than

at increased risk of developing a number of
serious and chronic medical conditions.
CrossFit Amelia Island and Club 14 Fitness
are working to raise awareness of youth fitness
issues and are holding an inaugural Youth
Fitness Ride, a classic one-day bicycle event
designed for the experienced road rider to the
beginner, beginning at 8 a.m. Oct. 18.
Proceeds will be used to provide bikes, fitness
equipment, gym time and community educa-
tion about youth fitness.
The route distances are 25, 35 and 45 miles
and 100k (65 miles) and primarily traverse
lightly-traveled country roads. The fee for this
ride is $25. Anyone under 18 can ride for free.
Day of ride registration increases to $45. Stop


by Club 14 Fitness or visit www.active.dom to
register. There is a $3 fee for registering online,
but a credit card may be used. Online registra-
tion ends Oct. 11. Visit www.crossfitamelia
island.com or www.active.com.

Triathlon on island
The city of Fernandina Beach and Amelia
Island will host its first triathlon, the Atlantic

1.2-mile swim at Fernandina's Main Beach, a
56-mile cycle along the coast and through the
island's interior and a 13.1-mile out-and-back
run through Fort Clinch State Park.
The other event is an Olympic distance
triathlon, which consists of a 1.5K swim, 40K
bicycle and 10K run.
The field is limited to 800 participants for the
long course event and 200 for the Olympic-dis-
tance "Ameliaman" event. Register at
www.atlanticcoasttriathlon.com or call DRC
Sports at 352-637-2475.

Police Athletic League fields in Jacksonville
Saturday.

Sassenger, Shave



clinch blitz titles


The weather was good but
a little windy both days as 52
players took part in the
Wednesday blitz and 54 on
Friday last week.
On Wednesday it was
Dennis Sassenger taking indi-
vidual honors with 79 and
plus 8 points. Second place at
plus 7 was shared by Jim
Dunphy and Bob Sibley, who
both had 85s.
On Friday the individual
honors were won by Tommy
Shave, who shot his age
(three-under-par) and plus 10
points. Sammy Alvarez was
second with a 75 and plus 8.
There was a three-way tie for
third at plus 5 between Marty
House (80), Al Jump (91) and
Gary Deehan (82).
Led by Sibley's plus 5, the
team that included Jim
McFarland (97, plus 5),
Woody Kallas (86, plus 4) and
Charles Benefield (95, minus
3) finished first at plus 13..
Sassenger's plus 8
received enough help from
Mickey Rushton (82, plus 4)
and Jim Roberts (82, plus 1)
to offset the minus five of
Dick Peterson (106) to come
in second at plus 9.
Finishing a close third at
plus 8 was the teanr of Dave
Mason (80, plus 6), Jim
Gibson (83, plus 3), Michael
Parker (80, even) and Don
Lay (88, minus 1).
There was a tie at plus 7
for fourth place between the
teams of Jack Croake (79,
plus 6), Rich Vredenburgh
(84, plus 4), Doug Morris (97,
minuis 1), D:D. Miller (97,
minus 1) and Dunphy (plus
7), Al Jump (91, plus 4), Bill
Larrabee (92, plus 1) and
John Rudd (105, minus 5).
A five-man team took first
place by one point on Friday.
Deehan (plus 5), Jump (plus
5), Ryan Tompkins (89, plus
2), Jack Croake (84, plus 1)
and Bill Larrabee (96, minus
3) finished at plus 10. ,
Another five-man team,
that included Shave, with his
plus 10, came in second at
plus 9. The team included Al
Rio (85, plus 2), Dave Mudd
(88, plus 2), Doug Morris (97,
minus 1) and Mike Robley
(88, minus 4).
Sammy Alvarez's plus 8
enabled the team of Wilson
Moore (82, minus 1), Mike
Lovejoy (83, plus 1) and Rich
Vredenburgh (87, even) to
come in third at plus 8.
House's plus 5 was offset
by the minus five of Heyde
Peterson (86), but Larry
Luett, with a 79 plus 4, and
Ron Therriault (92, plus 2)
was enough for the team to
finish fourth at plus 6.

Camilo Villegas won the Tour Tournament Results
/ Championship on Sunday at East 1st: Camilo Villegas
/ Lake Golf Club inAtlanta."This is Purse: $1,260,000
unbelievable," said Villegas, 2nd: Sergio Garcia
who had five birdies in a span of Purse: $756,000
six holes on 11Is way to a 66 and 3rd: Anthony Kim & Phil Mickelson
a seven-under total of 273. "I Purse: $409,500
cannot emphasize how hard I have worked and my team has helped
me." Villegas, who captured his first PGA Tour title just three weeks
) ago, clinched the win when Sergio Garcia left his chip-in attempt short
on the first playoff hole, after hitting a poor tee shot. Vijay Singh, with his significant
lead in the FedEx Cup standings, only had to complete 72 holes to capture the
FedEx Cup crown, shooting a 70 on Sunday for a nine-over 289 total.


-., Golf shoes are apparel that need
quite a bit of care, yet they rarely get
j the attention that they need. One of
9j the main problems is that they shrink
,, J due to the elements as well as stor-
age. The best way to keep your golf
shoes in prime condition is to insert
a shoe tree inside your shoe.' This will hold the
shoe's shape, minimize shrinkage and eliminate
moisture buildup. If you have leather golf shoes, you
should treat them with either polish or a silicone
spray. Today, most golf courses want you to wear
soft golf spikes instead of the old metal ones. If you
still have metal spikes and one comes loose, the
standard spike wrench will do the job. However, if
you do not have a spike wrench to use; try using a
divot repair tool or a towel that is pressed firmly
against the golf shoe spike.


Vijay Singh capped one of the most successful seasons of his career by clinching the lucra-
tive FedEx Cup and a $10 million bonus on Sunday. The Fijian had effectively secured the e '_
trophy after winning the first two of the four playoff events and simply needed to complete the 'CN'^z
final round at the Tour Championship to pocket $9 million in cash with $1 million deferred. "I'm glad 'h
this Cup is over," Singh, 48, told reporters after carding a level-par 70 in his last PGA Tour event of
the season. "I know it's mine now so ifs a good feeling. But I'm glad it's over. I was reminded 1,000
times before I started this week: Make sure you finish 72 holes, sign your card, have enough clubs, and gosh, every-
thing else." Singh, who posted a nine-over total of 289, said he had found it too difficult to maintain intensity during
the week with the FedEx Cup all but won. "It was really weird," the three time major winner said. 'You make a bogey,
you get congratulated; you make a double bogey, you get congratulated. It didn't really matter what I made."

Bruce Comrie's big jack crevalle ambushed a topwater "Skitter Walk."


PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
A huge school of fall run mullet is pictured under attack by a school of 10- to 15-
pound jack crevalle.






SFish attack!.


"Look at the size of that
mullet school swimming right
at our boat," Bruce Comrie
said. "That school of mullet
has to be the size of a football
field."
Comrie and I were pre-
fishing for the Pensacola
"Redfish Cup" tournament,
which was held Sept. 25-29. It
was midday and we were fish-
ing the deep edge of a long
point that jutted out into the
fishy waters of Panama City's
West Bay.
As the large mullet school
worked its way slowly along
the deep edge of the grassy
point, a school of 10- to 15-
pound jack crevalle caught
the massive school of mullet
off-guard and attacked. The
attack began from the rear
flank of the mullet school,
which caused the now fright-
ened school of mullet to swim
straight towards our fishing
boat. Mullet were leaping by
the thousands into the air
and, within a few seconds,
seemingly were going to
jump right into our fishing
boat. .
"Wow," Comrie said. "I
have never seen a fish attack
like this one in all my years of
fishing. Terry, they are going
to jump right into our boat."
I had opened my camera
case and started taking pho-
tos of the fish attack and at
the same time Comrie and I
cast topwater plugs into the
massive school of mullet and
jack crevalle. My only regret
was I did not take a picture of
the side of my boat where the
mullet were herded up to by
the school of jacks.
Seconds later, the
S,,Shimano .bait-cating-eel was'
almostemptied by a broad-
shouldered jack crevalle that
had eaten a Rapala "Skitter
Walk" topwater plug in the
white color pattern. We ran
the jack down with our boat's
electric motor, landed the 10-
pound jack and, after a few
I

photos,
released the
jack back
into the shal-
low waters of
West Bay.
By then'
the surface
of the water
was dead
still once
again and
the fish
attack was


over.
By far, nothing in the
world of fishing is more excit-
ing than game fish attacking
surface schooling baitfish.
The surface of the water can
be dead quiet one moment,
then seconds later, a school of
game fish has corralled bait-
fish right on the surface of
the water.
Without a doubt, that
school of fall run mullet that
was attacked by jack crevalle
on Panama City's West Bay
was the most exciting fishing
action that I have personally
witnessed in my 50-plus years
of fishing. A close second
took place at the-tip of the St
Marys south jetty rocks. It
was the first of the incoming
tide during a hot July sum-
mer's day. A massive school
of threadfin shad moved over
a shallow sandbar to the deep
side of the channel when a
school of 20- to 40-pound king
mackerel attacked the baitfish
right on the surface. For the
next 15 seconds, you could
see at least 10-20 king mack-
erel skyrocketing into the hot
summer morning air at one
time.
During October and
,'November~iiassive schols-,
of mtllet wilr migtate along
the beaches and inland water-
ways of both Georgia and
Northeast Florida. This big
migration of baitfish will also
attract a wide variety of game
fish, including jack crevalle,
tarpon, sharks, sea trout, red-


fish, flounder, bluefish and
king mackerel.
Key areas to find school-
ing mullet are both tips of the
St. Marys jetty rocks during
the falling tide. Massive
schools of mullet will begin
migrating to and from ocean
water into the nearby bays
and tidal estuaries. As the
mullet schools migrate close
to the jetty rocks and deep
holes located at the tips of
both the St Marys jetty
rocks, they attract a wide vari-
ety of jetty game fish. Look
for tarpon to feed on the mul-
let schools at the very tip of
the jetty rocks.during the
falling tides.
Redfish, blues, flounder
.and sea trout will ambush
schooling mullet as they
migrate close to the shallow
areas of the jetty rocks.
Fishing heats up in the
backwaters as well during the
fall mullet run, particularly
where there is a shallow flat
or deep channel that passes
over oyster bars or a sandy
point
During last year's fall mul-
let run, some of the best red-
fish action was experienced
as area redfishermen would
simply anchor their redfish
'boat close to a likely ambush
point. Once a school of mullet
migrated within cast net
range, the fishermen would
cast their net over the school
of mullet. Mullet were soon
barbed and cast into the deep
side of the shallow structure
where redfish, flounder, blues
and sea trout were holding to
capture an easy mal.
A favorite local fishing
technique includes locating a
shaiAw;water amnibush-oin-iioj:n
"'h Where mullet are schooling '
and working a topwater plug.
Nothing in the world of light
tackle fishing compares with
enticing a large redfish, sea
trout or jack crevalle up to the
surface where a real "fish
attack" is sure to happen.

Museum docents bring island's rich history to life


When you visit a museum or his-
toric property, your tour is often led
by a trained docent.
The Amelia Island Museum of
History, one of Florida's first oral
history museums, depends on vol-
unteer docents as its lifeblood. So
what is a docent? Many a docent will
chuckle as they answer, "It means
you don't get paid."
The word docent is derived from
the Latin word docere, which means
"to teach." It has come to mean vol-
unteers that staff museums and
other institutions. These trained
interpreters give life to bricks, mor-
tar and collections of antiquities.
According to Thea Seagraves, volun-
teer coordinator, our island museum
has 23 active trained docents. Each
has completed a detailed study of
the island's history with an empha-


sis on the eight
flags story.
Susie and Bill
Birdsong, both
active volunteers,
agree that they
Were attracted to
,jy "|. the museum
because of its mis-
sion "education
FROM with pleasure."
THE Another volunteer,
PORCH Sam Boyd, has
found his docent
duties "a real joy
Dickie and valued chance
Anderson to share the rich
knowledge of our
island with others." Carol Ann
Atwood, longtime volunteer, current
docent and past-president of the
museum, relates, "I particularly


Museum tours & training
The Amelia Island Museum of History. 233 S. Third St., offers one-hour,
docent led Eight Flags Tours at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday. Every Fnday at 6 p.m. a ghost tour leaves
from the cemetery behind St Peter's Episcopal Church. Watch for addi-
tional ghost tours this month. Visit www.ameliamuseum org for more infor-
mation.
One-week docent training includes presentations by veteran docents,
| guided tours of the museum, an educational manual and a graduation
luncheon. Contact Thea Seagraves, volunteer coordinator, at 261-7378,
ext. 105, or thea @ameliamuseum.org if you are interested in the class.


enjoy my tours with children. They
love to help with some of the props
and visuals we use to tell our histo-
ry."
Our island museum currently has
a docent training program in .
progress. The classes offer a fasci-


nating in-depth look at Amelia
Island's amazing history. At the com-
pletion of the course participants are
asked sign an agreement and com-
mit to leading a minimum of two
tours a month. No prior experience
is required and once the training is


complete volunteers use their knowl-
edge and tell the eight flags story in
their own words as they take people
through the museum.
The tradition of an oral history
museum allows for programs to be
both educational and entertaining.
Docents may also act as first person
presenters, teaching history in cos-
tume and taking on the persona of a
famous character in the island's his-
tory. There are lots of opportunities
to volunteer, from being a docent to
landscaping.
You, too, can make history. Take
a tour or consider becoming a
docent or volunteer.

book and gift stores or on line at www.

Turtle watch
Lucas Rary, 7, Christian
Rary, 4, and Mary Raines
check on a sea turtle nest in
August as part the Amelia
Island Sea Turtle Watch.
Raines, a volunteer with the
organization, counted 147
hatched turtle eggs from the
nest.
Each May survey areas are
assigned to volunteers trained
in survey procedures.
Volunteers locate nests, crawls
or strandings and report to the
coordinator. In areas where
vehicular traffic, beach light-
ing or beach renourishment
activity impacts the viability of
nests, clutches are relocated
to safer areas of the beach for
incubation and monitoring.
