go to trial
If you are charged with a felony in
Nassau County, chances are good your
case will never go to trial; after all, less
than 1 percent of felony cases locally do
go to trial.
Last year, of the 1,030 felony cases
filed, only' three were tried. The rest
were disposed of primarily through
plea agreements, pretrial intervention
programs or, in some cases, were
dropped altogether or are still await-
Since 2004, less than 1 percent of
felony cases have gone to trial.
, Assistant State Attorney Stephen
Bledsoe, lead prosecutor in Nassau
County, said the number of cases that
are tried here has been low for years.
, "We don't have that many (trials)
every year as opposed to Duval
(County), where the numbers have
gone up," Bledsoe said. He said that's
a good thing in Jacksonville, the sky-
rocketing crime rate has encouraged
prosecutors to take more cases to trial
"The'accent (in Duval County) has
been on addressing the increase in the
crime rate, specifically on the homi-
cides, and the emphasis has been to
try as many of those cases as we can, so
our trial rate in Duval County is going
up," he said. "Thankfully, we don't have
anywhere near the high rate of violent

"Right now we're trying to sort it
all out," said Ruis of the mandate for a
comprehensive virtual school system
for all grades. It's not a new concept; the
state's Florida Virtual School has exist-
ed for several years, but it currently
has 25,000 students on the wait list

What is known is that "the district
will contract with a vendor or possibly
multiple vendors for the online cur-

Burgess-Watkins. "Certified Nassau

teach, assist and communicate with the

The teachers will oversee and mon-
itor students' progress, and adminis-

Parents and guardians will also have
an electronic account in order to mon-

whether it will require part-time or full-

The Nassau County Council on
Aging, which must vacate its Baptist
Medical Center-owned location by 2011,
has had second thoughts about moving
to a county-owned 14th Street site. It is
now considering relocation to a city-
Council on Aging officials had been
considering the 14th Street property,
former site of Humphrey's Memorial
Hospital and later converted to a coun-
ty annex. It has been vacant since 2004,
when the county moved its offices to
The county-owned property, how-
ever, has been found to have numerous
environmental problems such as
asbestos and possible medical waste.
The county has estimated demolition
and asbestos abatement of the proper-
ty to be about $420,000(X. The city's share
for demolition would be up to $250,000,
but officials have feared the costs could
be much higher.
Jane Bailey, president of the Council
on Aging, said at a city commission
meeting Tuesday that it might be a bet-
ter idea if the Council on Aging looked

Several county residents have ques-

chise waste removal in the unincorpo-
rated areas of Nassau County because
the ordinance's recycling clause need-
The clause does not currently
require haulers to provide curbside'
recycling unless residents specifically
ask for it, according to County
Coordinator Edward Sealover; oppo-
nents want the offering to be manda-
Several residents also balked at a
county commission meeting Oct. 13 at
the ordinance's planned franchise fee of
6 percent of haulers' gross revenue -
fearing the cost would be passed on to
customers and instead recommended
a direct tax assessment to pay for the.
The recycling clause drew the most
comment "If the county is proposing
something other than best practices, it
should be the burden of the county to
prove why that's a defensible position,"
said Bill Brainard of Fernandina Beach.
"What frequently doesn't get men-
tioned is that recycling is an expensive
proposition," Commissioner Mike
Boyle countered. "It doesn't pay for
itself." He added that the county had to
watch its spending because of the
"Is the county going to look at the
long view and do the right thing, or are
we going to change positions every
time there's an economic downturn?"
The planned franchise fee also came
under fire. "While I commend the com-
mission for tackling this subject," the
fee could be passed on to consumers,"

Halloween tips for home and on the road
For the News-Leader
MERIDEN, CONN. Halloween is a
time of great fun for children, but it can
be a little scary for parents and drivers.
Children are often out after dark, cross-
ing busy streets and perhaps going to
'With excited kids frantically going
from neighbor to neighbor, drivers need
to be particularly cautious," said Ray
Palermo, director of public information
for Teachers' Insurance Plan. "However,
by following some simple advice, parents,
children, drivers and homeowners can all
have a safe, enjoyable time."
If children are out at night, drivers
need to be particularly careful at dusk
and when driving either over a hill or
around a curve, where visibility is limited.
Use high beams to see and be seen.
A S should always be
accompanied by an
V . adult or travel in a
should be told not to
._ M ..M .. eat any unwrapped
candy or treats until
they return home where their parents
can see them. Making sure kids have
already eaten before heading out helps.
Parents may want to limit kids to
local events run by police stations, fire-
houses, senior citizen centers, churches
or local businesses, or organize their own
through their school.
Parents should incorporate reflec-
tive tape in costumes or add bright colors
to increase visibility. Make-up rather than
masks should be worn to help ensure
that children have an unobstructed view
of their surroundings.
Trick-or-treaters may be caught up
in the excitement of the day and not be as
careful as they should. They should
always cross at corners and look both
ways before crossing. Drivers need to
keep a careful eye on the road and on the
sidewalk, in case anyone darts out from
between parked cars.
Children should stay on the side-
walk or if none is available, walk facing
the lane of traffic, and they should carry
Homeowners should clear their
yards of anything that can be tripped over
and be sure to have a front door or walk-
way light on, and refrain from decora-
tions that use an open flame that could
ignite a child's costume.

I RIAL Continued from A.4
felony crimes here in Nassau
County ... we're still primarily
a rural county ... and most
felony cases are resolved
through plea negotiations- by
and large, that's been the case
here in Nassau County."
Nassau County Circuit
Court Judge Robert M. Foster
holds felony court every
Thursday and, Bledsoe said,
keeps a close eye on the pro-
gression of cases. Frequently
cases are set for trial some-
times more than once '- that
ultimately result in a plea
agreement of some kind.
The plea agreements often
result in a more lenient sen-
tence for the defendant than
they might have received if
convicted by a jury; the defen-
dant gets a break, and the pros-
ecutor avoids the possibility of
losing the case at trial.
So defense attorneys and
prosecuting attorneys negoti-
ate; most of the time, the nego-
tiations are successful.
However, the defendant has
the final say as to whether they
are going to plead guilty.
In July, a man charged with
sexual battery pleaded guilty
instead to aggravated assault
and was sentenced to five years
in prison; had he been con-
victed at trial of sexual battery,
he could have been sentenced
to at least 15 years in prison.
Earlier this month, Michael
Perry Cleveland pleaded guilty
to second-degree murder and
was sentenced to 20 years in
prison; had he been convicted
of the original charge against
him first-degree murder -
Cleveland likely would have
been sentenced to life in prison

Tom Silverio of the Council
on Aging said the selection

one parcel might be considered

city commissioners and staff to

Silverio added that if the
committee still found the 14th

looking at city properties, they
would reconsider their decision.
But Commissioner Eric

city commissioners to negoti-

Commissioner Ron Sapp,
however, told Childers he was
"having trouble following"
Childers' reasoning, because
the Council on Aging had
already said it wanted to look at
another piece of property.
"It's a win-win for the city
and for the Council on Aging,"
But Childers persisted in his
argument that the Council on
Aging should be in the 14th

missioners to "look at the big
picture," adding that the prop-

community center with an ideal
location close to downtown. He
also said he believed that walk-
ing away from negotiations "will
be detrimental to our relation-

."The county needs us to

But Sapp said he wanted to
get away from the county's "tak-

Boatright, a retired JEA

"Also with 31 years with

Palma, a former business

him the fiscal expertise to

think my experiences give me

populace faces not only in their
personal lives but .their profes-
sional lives as well," he said. "I
stood on the side of the tax-
payer each and every day. I
fought my employer tooth and
nail. When I left, I'm sure they
were relieved. Lower taxes are
better. Coming from a
Democrat that doesn't make
sense. People say, 'Oh my God,
are you a Democrat?' Maybe
I'm a conservative Democrat; I
really haven't been able to pin
that down yet."
Boatright said he would try
to tighten the. county's purse
strings if elected. "I think the

control spending, and that'll
free up funding for recreation-

Palma said his top priority
would be "to bring population
growth and government
growth in line. If you can do
that, everything else will bring
itself into line.
"There are so many issues,
from libraries to taxes to.roads
to creating enterprise loans to
bring people here, so people
like my wife won't have to drive
a 65-mile round trip for a
$52,000-a-year job," he added.
"All they want to do is build
shopping centers to create
jobs. We need something more
creative. These jobs that are
here are great for my children
as they approach their teen
years, but these are not jobs
good enough for a family of
four to put food on the table."
Palma also criticized the
current commission for voting
down Clerk of Court' John
Crawford's recent proposal to
give county residents a
$700,000 tax cut. "My theory
on taxes is, the lower the better
for everyone, individual or busi-
ness," he said. "I realize that
the government needs taxes
to run and provide services ...
but when you have population
growth of 36 percent in 10
years versus government
growth of 168 percent, some-
thing's wrong. They hold onto
it like it's their own. That's not
right. People can't even go to
goatright, however, thinks
the commission did the right
thing. He said the tax break to
the individual citizen would
have been negligible. '"We do
have adequate reserves built
up in the county, but if you start
giving back $700,000, you're
going to start short-changing
smaller funds," he said. "It's
basically $10 to every person in
the county. I don't think most
people would mind if you gave
that back to a library fund or
another small fund. Ten dol-
lars per person -,I don't think
people would mind as long as
it's spent wisely."

FLORIDA'S OLDEST WEEKLY NEWSPAPER
ESTABLISHED IN 1854
The News-Leader is published with pride weekly
for the people of Nassau County by Community
Newspapers, Inc., Athens, Georgia. We believe
that strong newspapers build strong communi-
ties "Newspapers get things done!" Our primary
goal is to publish distinguished and profitable
community-oriented newspapers. This mission
will be accomplished through the teamwork of

C NI Community
The views expressed by the columnists and
letter writers on this page are their own
and do notnecessarily reflect the views of
the newspaper, its owners or employees
Our view on
Nassau County voters will help decide
six proposed amendments to the Florida
Constitution in this election. Here is our
view of each:
Amendment 1 would repeal obnoxious
provisions authorizing the state legislature
to prohibit aliens ineligible for citizenship
from owning, inheriting or possessing prop-
erty. This decades-old law was aimed at
thwarting Chinese people from property
rights. Today, it could be used to prevent a
British citizen from buying a second home
on Amelia Island. Vote Yes to repeal it.
Amendment 2 stipulates that the state
shall recognize only those legal unions of
men and women as marriage. This anti-gay
legislation is draconian, misguided and
complicated. We believe the church should
regulate marriage, and the state should be
cautious in prohibiting the behavior of con-
senting adults in their private lives.
This law doesn't affect just gay people, it
also could restrict the rights of heterosexu-
al couples who live together- bittare iiot
married. Certain rights to health insurance"
benefits and other legal partnership bene-
fits could be compromised if this is
approved. There are many senior citizens in
Florida, and others, who have lived together
for years who could be adversely affected.
Amendment 3 would lower property
taxes for homeowners who make certain
energy-saving and hurricane protection
improvements to their residences.
Homeowners should not be penalized with
higher property taxes when they make
improvements that save energy or safe-
guard their homes. Vote Yes.
Amendment 4 would require the legis-
lature to exempt property taxes for parcels
encumbered by perpetual conservation
easements. This allows rural landowners to
set aside property for conservation without
having to pay higher taxes that might be
levied because of prospective development.
We remind you that Crane Island, which
will be developed for residences, was once
labeled Conservation property, so clever
developers and lawyers will circumvent this
law. Still, it's another tool worth having to
keep rural property from being developed if
a landowner wishes to preserve it. Vote Yes.
Amendment 6 (a judge ruled proposed
Amendment 5 invalid) would provide a
property tax break for land used predomi-
nantly for commercial fishing or other com-
mercial and industrial marine purposes.
This might have saved our Amelia River
waterfront from the condos that eventually
will be built there, but the shrimp docks
and waterfront industries already have sold
their land partly because of crushing prop-
erty taxes. While it may be too late for us,
others may benefit from saving their work-
ing waterfronts. Vote Yes.
Amendment 8 (Amendment 7 failed to
make the ballot) would allow counties to
levy a local option sales tax to benefit com-
munity colleges if voters approve. This
would give FCCJ another option for fund-
ing, though Nassau voters would have to
endorse any additional taxation. We gener-
ally oppose any additional taxes, but we can
imagine circumstances that someday might
lead voters to levy a tax for FCCJ. Thus we
urge you to vote Yes.

'Trick or treat, smell
Remember when Halloween was an
official kid's holiday? It started on the
school bus that morning and ended
late that night after you'd eaten so
much Laffy Taffy that you barfed in
Halloween was rushing home from school
and actually doing your homework, then bolt-
ing down supper so quick it made the dog envi-
ous. Halloween was purple dusk with a hint of'
smoke in the air and a fat, golden harvest
moon peering in the window as you smeared
your face with greasepaint and imagined that
you really were a pirate or a hobo or
Frankenstein's monster or something creepy
off last week's episode of The Outer Limits.
Halloween was your buddies hollering at you
to hurry before the big kids hogged up all the
good candy and people started turning out
their porch lights. Remember? If so, you're
probably as old as Howdy Doody.
Halloween sort of fell on hard times there
for a while. It nearly faded away into the mists
years ago when urban myths about LSD and
razor blades in candy made the rounds. Then
some churches put the holy hex on Halloween.
Said it was all about devil worship and such. In
the immortal words of Charlie Brown, who
never quite got Linus's infatuation with that
pumpkin patch: Good Grief!
The official holiday of ghosties, goblins,
witches and other things that go bump in the
night, not to mention Superman, Cinderella
and the entire cast of "Star Wars," isn't as popu-
Slar as before because Americans have grown
paranoid and cynical. But from time to time, it
i shows signs of resurgence to
its heyday, when Roy Rogers,
Zorro and Cruella DeVille
reigned supreme and every
street in America was
mobbed by little kids toting
Sgoodie bags or plastic jack-o-
lanterns from door to door
chanting, 'Trick or treat,

CUP OF thing good to eat"
JOE There's a pecking order, if
.... you'll notice. Just before dark
come the tykes and toddlers
Joe Palmer dressed as bumble bees and
fairies. A quick trip to a few
neighbors' homes and it's off to bed. Then
comes the shuffling, giggling hordes of gram-
mar school kids looking like central casting for
Disney. Next are Halloween's merry
pranksters, the young teens and 'tweens with
Freddie Kruger and Jason masks. Gypsy girls
and female punk rockers. Groups of young
surfers dressed in baggies or bikinis and flip-
flops, board tucked under one arm, goodie bag
clutched in the other hand. They arrive in
groups of eight or so and each one of them
rings your doorbell at least four times. When
you open the door, they all smile like Eddie
Haskell at Mr. and Mrs. Cleaver and hold their
bags out and when they leave, you check to
make sure the lawn ornaments are still there.
And not posed in rude positions.
My wife and I have worked hard to keep the
Halloween tradition alive. We line the walkway
with jack-o-lanterns and greet every princess,
Miner Road is deplorable! Two new schools
are great but there is basically one way in and one
way out for all intents and purposes. No side-
walk for the kids to walk on and the road is com-
pletely falling apart and in desperateneed of
resurfacing. A head-on collision is possible, espe-
cially during nighttime after-school activities,
practices, football games, PTA, band, etc. There
are two schools trying'to get in and outof Miner
Road. At least someone could cut the grass but
not even that is being done. It is embartrasing to
go to school for anything; clean it up and fix it.
Resurface, add bigger turn lanes, put in a side-
walk. Mow and landscape or just build another jail
Re: "The end of democracy" (Oct. 17).
Let me first say that I am neither endorsing the
recent economic "bailout" nor our political system.
With that said, (the letter writer's) argument is
flawed it is full of fallacies, but more impor-
tantly, his understanding of our political system
is off. However, I agree with what he seems to
think our system of government should be.
The term democracy is used loosely today, and
thu- is often usedincorieetly:. fetioursi arep-
"'reseritative deifocracy iotfa 'irect democracy;.
look it up yourself. Central in the definition of a
representative democracy is that the represen-
tatives (Congress, the president, etc) do not have
to act in the will of the people. Instead, the peo-
ple vest political power in candidates to act as they
see fit by voting for them. Politicians aren't gov-
erned by popularity polls look at our president
and his actions. People should ask themselves, is
this right, or is there a better way to do this?
Also, the assertion that this marks the "end of
democracy" is age-old and has become historically
hackneyed. I could find arguments that stated this
in reaction to any number of events in every
decade since the American Revolution. The Anti-
Federalists actually took this position toward the
Constitution, saying that it greatly restricts democ-
racy and destroys the work of the revolution.
What they did was completely in their power the
question is, should it be in their power without any
Suggesting that the bailout is taxation without
representation is far off the mark, too. Patrick
Henry argued the "no taxation without repre-
sentation" bit because England was taxing us
while Americans had no say in government what-
soever, no votes nor representatives. Of course,
we have both. But do we have enough direct rep-
resentation, or enough say in things?
I do, however, understand (the letter writer's)
anger and agree with many of the things he
implies. There should be an overhaul of our sys-
tem. Indirect election systems like the Electoral
College are essentially undemocratic and violate
"one man, one vote" and should be thrown out.
Representatives should act more so in the will of
the people. Everything that supports the two-
troll or Batman at the door and admire their
costumes and let them pick out what kind of
candy they'd like. A few years back, recalling
an adult in my own neighborhood who did it,
we started making candy and caramel apples
on Halloween. Our initial fears parents would-
n't let their kids eat them proved wrong. The
"candy apple house" is a big hit every year. We
even set aside some for moms and dads.
And because part of me refuses to grow up,
I still delight in playing harmless pranks on the
kids. A few years back, I dressed as a scare-
crow and sat on the porch holding a candy
bowl. I sat so motionless a group of teens
thought I was a real scarecrow and one tried to
filch the entire bowl. I seized his hand and
growled, "Don't be greedy!" I didn't know
Wookies could run so fast. Or scream so loud.
One year we were eating dinner when a
group of little ones came a-calling. I carried my
dinner plate to the door and announced sadly,
"Sorry kids, no candy left. But I have some
broccoli, a pork chop, some mashed potatoes
and corn on the cob." Before I could say I was
kidding, a solemn faced youngster held out his
bag and replied dolefully, "Guess I'll take the
corn on the cob."
We anxiously await our annual little parade
of trick or treaters. The candy and caramel
apples will be mouth watering. The jack-o-
lanterns will be lit. And just in case the candy
runs out before the kids stop calling, the corn
on the cob will be crisp and yummy as always.

Fernandina Beach High School Senior
Noon Amendment 2
Ms. Peggy Stanton writes beautifully on all the
moral and biblical reasons to vote "Yes" on
Amendment 2 ((Oct. 22). I believe in the Bible.
I believe in the sanctity of marriage and that it
should only be a union of a man and a woman.
But I do not support Amendment 2. Here's why:
As has been said in the news, in Florida there
already exists a law that expressly affirms the
sanctity of marriage. It was passed by the legis-
lature and signed by the governor. Unlike
Massachusetts or California, I don't believe our
law could be struck by legal challenge. Nor
would I expect any county or town to rush to
bless same-sex unions if it were overturned.
Jacksonville or Fernandina are no San Francisco.
But the reason for my opposition is far simpler
and clearer. '
If this law is passed, it would deny any legal
rights to a couple that have lived together as
man and wife but neglected to formalize the
union with a license. This would mean if a guy
and a gal had lived together for 10 years and
one was suddenly hurt or disabled or killed, the
other would have no legal right to have any say
regarding (and may even be barred from visiting)
their significant other. This may not be what
was intended by this legislation but it could eas-
ily become the end result.
If the homophobes and religious right must
have a law to protect them, then at least make
sure that it does what it intends and only that.
Amendment 2 is poorly worded and a good exam-
ple of a law rushed to enactment by well intend-
ed people acting on emotion and not logic and
Please vote No on Amendment 2.

school days that I wasn't aware of. Like a lot of
parents like myself, I leave for work before the
school bus takes our children to school. The
teenagers can simply skip school.
By the time, and if, the school calls you and
lets you know that they are absent then it
may cause problem for our jobs to have to leave

tardy anyway for school. The new school hours

VIEWPOINT/GIL LANGLEY/AMELIA ISLAND CONVENTION AND VISITORs BUREAu
Island lures fall season tourists
C continuing its commitment to fuel
tourism and economic development in
Nassau County, the newly established
Amelia Island Convention and Visitors
Bureau (AICVB) is working diligently on a fall
marketing initiative designed to boost
overnight visitation to the area. The CVB's
advertising, public relations and interactive
marketing agencies are busy keeping Amelia
Island top of mind for consumers nationwide,
but more specifically in key drive markets.
This fall, the AICVB is channeling its adver-
tising dollars primarily toward in-state and
regional markets. Print ads were placed in the
Villages Daily Sun, reaching the growing sen-
ior market, and throughout daily and weekly
Florida newspapers, including a Post-It-Note
style ad in the Florida Times-Union. The num-
ber of-weekly newspapers is on the rise, as tra-
ditional daily newsrooms continue to shrink
and their ltavel sections dwindle. Our results
have been impressive thus far, with web visits
nearly doubling the first day the print cam-
paign hit. In addition to the print campaign,
radio spots have been running in key markets
such as Jacksonville, Orlando, Tallahassee and
Tampa, in partnership with the state's tourism
marketing corporation, Visit Florida.
With one of Northeast Florida's largest spe-
cial events on the horizon,
Florida/Georgia game, the
AICVB has beefed up its
marketing messages to
promote Amelia Island as
the ideal home base for
visitors. Our interactive
agency created two land-
ing pages specifically tar-
Langley getting Gator and Bulldog
fans, highlighting avail-
able accommodations during the big game
weekend. Additionally, the CVB has partnered
with WSB-AM, the number two radio station in
Atlanta and the flagship station of the Georgia
Bulldogs, to run radio spots two weeks prior
to the game, banners on their website, and

"The Promise" was a great addition.
Thanks, Yulee Baptist Church, for your
most attractive and newsy newsletter.
We welcome "The Promise" and the
quote "For He who promised is faithful."
A note from Pastor Michael W. Fox,
their new Pastor: "We are vastly
approaching my favorite time of the
year, fall. Have you ever noticed what
happens as we approach this season?
Something seems different in the air.
Things begin to happen. Nature moves
from the laid-back summertime routine
to a spirit of preparedness. The animals
begin to consume as much food as pos-
sible in attempts to increase their body
weight to keep them warm during the
winter. The squirrels begin to gather
their nuts. The birds begin to fly in to
escape the northern chill. If you listen,
you can almost hear nature's call to pre-
pare. I heard this call just this morning
as I listened to the sound of the pecans
dropping off the tin roof of my neigh-
"We as God's people are called to
prepare as well. Yes, we need to prepare
for the upcoming season. We need to
prepare to reach out to our community
through our Fall Festival. We need to
prepare to praise the name of Jesus as
we approach Thanksgiving. We need to
prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ
as we approach Christmas. Oh, there is
so much to do, so many events, dinners,
cantatas, plays and parades. It is my
prayer that we will all do our part in
preparing for all of these wonderful
"But let's not forget to prepare our
hearts. I believe we are called to prepare
in this way. Something is different in the
air. God wants us to do a mighty work
among us. I believe something wonder-
ful is about to happen in our midst. Let's
prepare our hearts. Just as nature is
preparing for the winter ahead, let's get
ready for what God is going to do."

Firemen who must enter a burning building to save someone, or police officers who
confront known criminals are examples of people who possess a special type of bravery
and courage. And although most of us will never have to enter a burning building or
confront known criminals, just doing and saying what is right in our daily lives also often
requires courage, Trying to correct an injustice, asking for someone's forgiveness, and even
expressing our appreciation to someone may also require courage. The Lord wants us to
be courageous and to have peace In our hearts as we face our daily responsibilities. And
we should be comforted, because He told us that He would never leave us or forsake us,
and He Is always with us, both during our trials and our joys,

Create a wildlife)
garden this Halloween
Reston, VA- Halloween is a
holiday with lots of creepy
wildlife associated with it, but
are they really so creepy? From
toads to bats to owls, the
National Wildlife Federation
shares the facts about these ani-
mals and what they are up to at,
this time of year, which might
dispel a few myths.
Bats Blood sucking
vampire bats are real but they
mostly feed on chickens and
cows and only live in Latin
America. Most North American
bats are insect eaters, feeding
on everything from moths to
mosquitoes to beetles. They
use echolocation.to find their..
prey, which is kind of like radar,
rather than eyesight They tend
to have beady little eyes and
weird-shaped faces, which
makes them look scary. But
those faces help capture sound
waves bouncing off of prey and
other objects and funnel those
waves to their ears.
Many bat species are enter-
ing into hibernation in caves or
hollow trees, but some fly south
for the winter just like birds.
Spiders Spiders, with
their eight legs and multiple
eyes, are creatures right out of
nightmares and their sticky
webs and venomous fangs don't
help their public image either.
But even though they might
look scary, spiders are actually
extremely beneficial predators
of all sorts of insect pests. And
only three species in the U.S.
that have venom strong enough
to hurt people: the black widow,
the brown recluse and the
hobo, and spider bites from
these are very rare.
Toads Toads 'are not
just a keX ingredient in witches'
brew, they are important envi-
ronmental indicators. All amphi-
bians are susceptible to envi-
ronmental toxins ,because of
their sensitive skin. They are
usually the first species to die
out in polluted areas. If you
have healthy toad populations
it's a good sign that your neigh-
borhood is fairly unpolluted.
And no, you cannot catch warts
from touching a toad.
Toads are voracious pest
predators in the warm months,
but go into underground hiber-
nation by late fall.
Snakes The slithering,
legless body. The forked
tongue. The lidless eyes.
Everything about a snake is
decidedly non-human. But even
though they strike fear in many
people, most snake species are
completely harmless. In fact,
snakes are enormously benefi-
cial, helping to control insect
and rodent pests. The only time
a snake will try to bite is if it's
cornered or startled. The nat-
ural reaction of all snakes to
people is to get away or hide.
Owls The nocturnal
habits, glowing eyes and utter-
ly silent flight make these
predatory birds the epitome of
eeriness. It turns out that all of
those things are simply adap-
tations for survival. Owls are
nocturnal to avoid coriiietition
for prey with day-flying hawks.
Their giant eyes and the fringed
feathers that make no noise
when the bird is flying allow
them to hunt in the darkness.
Most owls are year-round
residents and don't migrate.
Listen for the hoot-hoot-hoot of
the great horned owl or the
whinnying shriek of the
screech owl when you're trick
or treating this year!
Now that you know the
truth about these valuable
wildlife, you might consider
attracting them to your yard.

tion shows you how to turn
your property into a wildlife

Lady Pirate golf team heading to state tournament
The school had a lone state qualifier
last season, but Fernandina Beach High

The FBHS Lady Pirates took second

QB Tom Brady's knee infected
Tom Brady, the most valuable player
in the NFL last season with a
record 50 touchdown passes, was
knocked out the NFL for the sea-
son within the first 10 minutes of the 2008
season when Kansas City safety Bernard
Pollard rolled over into the quarterback's left
knee. Brady suffered a tear of his ACL and
his MCL and was initially placed into a rehab
program in order to give him time to regain
his motion, reduce his swelling and to allow
his MCL to heal. He underwent surgery Oct.
6 to reconstruct his ACL by Dr. Neal
ElAttrache at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic
Clinic in Los Angeles.
However, during his post-surgical recov-
ery, things took a turn for the worse and
Brady has been returned to the operating
room three times over the last week to deal
with a surgical infection that had developed
within the knee.
The infection could be a superficial one,
perhaps just of one of the incisions on the
knee that is made to place the graft used to
reconstruct the ACL. This superficial wound
infection would be most likely and taking him
back to the O.R. for a surgical cleaning would
be a "conservative" thing to do. It would be
the most cautious thing to do in order to try
to prevent further spread of the infection.
It does appear, however, that Brady's
infection is deeper, involving the joint itself
which could have major implications, espe-
cially if the infection invades the graft or con-
taminates the screws which hold the graft in
place. If this occurs, the consequences could
be devastating. Doctors have already had to
re-scope Brady's knee three times now after
his initial surgery. If they are unable to clear
the infection, then his surgeon may have to
remove the graft and screws in order to erad-
icate the infection. Then,
ultimately his entire recon-
structive surgery would
have to repeated several
Weeks from now, once the
infection was cleared. It has
already been established at
this point that Brady will be
covered for six weeks with
both IV and oral antibiotics.

This would make it appear at least at this
point the infection is superficial and the knee

Infections in ACL reconstructions are
very uncommon and the national incidence is
around 1 percent of cases. The likelihood of

method of reconstruction or the choice of tis-

Five certified as rescue divers
Instructor Tom Northey of
Scuba Station certified five
rescue divers last month -
Rene Allday, Amanda Glaze,
Peter Timmins, Noah
Timmins and Jack Perrett.
The course consisted of
three challenging parts -
academics, skills develop-
ment and open water scenar-
ios. Students were required
to perform various tasks such
as providing aid to a tired ,
diver and a panicked diver on
the surface; safely surfacing a
panicked diver and an uncon-
scious diver; resuscitation of
a non-breathing diver while
removing equipment and tow-
ing; and executing various
search patterns underwater.
These skills were developed
in the swimming pool.
Actual scenarios were per-
formed in a lake at Blythe
Island Park in Brunswick, Ga.
All students developed their
skills quickly and performed
beyond the expected stan-
dards, according to Northey.
Students were required to
have pre-requisite Advanced
Diver and Emergency First
The Rescue Diver course is a
prerequisite for Master Scuba

Sylvia, played by Shirley Tripp, sings "That's All Right" along with Lorraine, played by LaTarsha Long, center right, and Natalie,
played by Katie Scott, center left, and the "barflies" in Alhambra. Dinner Theatre's production of "All Shook Up," inspired by the
songs of Elvis Presley. Inset below, Clint Clark plays Chad, a "roustabout with a song in his heart."
All Shook Up' atAlhambra
A small town with "broken down jukes, bro-
ken down people and unsatisfied women" gets
shaken to its core when Chad rolls in on his
broken down motorcycle in Alhambra Dinner
Theatre's production of "All Shook Up."
A "roustabout with a song in my heart and
an eye for the ladies," Chad styles himself after
Elvis whose songs propel this hilarious satire
-right down to the blue suede shoes. "Nobody
step on them," he warns the people.
The year is 1955 and the town has been liv-
ing under the puritanical strictures of Mayor
Matilda Hyde (played with evangelical fervor
by Lisa Valdini), whose aim in life is to keep
everyone in line under the Mamie Eisenhower
Decency Act, especially her young son Dean,
who she is about to ship off to the Stonewall
Jackson Military Academy.
"Looks like I got here just in time to help
you live a little," Chad tells the citizens as he

juke box in the only watering hole in town. "No
public necking? What's the point of living?"
Played with swiveling hips and humor by
Clint Clark, Chad is really moreJethro than
Elvis. Nevertheless, with rock "n' roll restored,
the town's people fall in behind him, much to
the horror of Mayor Matilda. "Let me.juqt say,
you're all going to hell," she warns them as she
hatches a plan to throw Chad in jail.
What follows is not a simple love triangle
but a love parallelogram, as Natalie the
mechanic tosses in her wrench for dreams of

for Natalie and reconsiders his plans for dental
