Eppes House, 31 South 10th St., was built about 1885 by Thomas
Jefferson Eppes, railroad official and great-great-grandson of
President Thomas Jefferson.


to be haunted. St. Peter's Episcopal
Church is rumored to have a haunted
mirror. Palace Saloon bartender
Charlie Beresford, who poured shots
from 1906 until 1960, supposedly still
stalks through the bar. Legend has it
that the Florida House Inn is home to
around' 30 wayward spirits.
But perhaps the most captivating
tale of the supernatural is that of Eppes
House.
Eppes House, which has stood at
the corner of 10th and Ash streets for
nearly 130 years, has all the makings
of a crackerjack haunted house. Its
story has the perfect ingredients: a
beautiful woman, ajealous husband, an
innocent man and an unpunished mur-
der. But the story of Eppes House


an innocent man.

.takes an unusual turn: The murder
didn't take place in the house, and the
victim isn't the one haunting its prem-
ises.
Indeed, records indicate that the
house wasn't built until the year after
the murder. If a ghost does roam the
corridors of Eppes House, it isn't cry-
ing for revenge. It may, however, be
weeping from guilt
I wanted to find out, so I got in
touch with the house's current owner,
Ben Humphreys, and arranged to

The murder
It was the afternoon of Feb. 7,1884,
and Thomas Jefferson Eppes had
spent his walk toward the Mansion
House Hotel working himself into a
rage. Now Eppes railroad official
and great-great-grandson of President
Thomas Jefferson could see only
one way to soothe his anger.
Eppes' wife, Celeste (some sources
call her Kate), had complained to him
that the Mansion House's manager,
former Union Army officer and mar-
ried father of five Maj. EC. Suhrer,
had been paying her inappropriate
attentions. To Eppes, a gentleman of

boosts



bed tax

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader -
The Nassau County Commission
voted Monday to increase the county's
bed tax from 2 percent to 3 percent.
The tax, which is collected from hotels
and bed-and-breakfasts, funds the
Amelia Island Tourist Development
Council.
"(The increase) was passed unani-
mously by the TDC and the visitors
bureau to come before the board, which
must approve it," said Commissioner
Mike Boyle, who also serves as the
TDC's chairman.
"That increase would be the first
increase of the bed tax since 1988," said
Gil Langley, president and CEO of the
Amelia Island Convention and Visitors
Bureau. Langley said'the increase
would raise significantly the TDC's abil-
ity to promote tourism on the island.
Dr. Melissa Neal of the University of
West Florida's Haas Center for Business
Research and Economic Development,
who conducted a study on tourism in
Nassau County, said tourist dollars are
a significant part of the local economy.
"Amelia Island tourism generates
approximately $346 million annually -
and that's all locally," she said. "It gen-
erates income and local wages of about
$94 million.... These are relatively con-
servative numbers, but still pretty hefty.
"When it comes to workforce, you
are double the rest of the state," she
added. 'Tourism-related workforce in
Nassau County is 20 percent. In the
(rest of the) state of Florida, it's 10 per-
cent"
Neal said that even with the

site for



aging

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commission
voted Monday to fund an environmen-
tal study of a county-owyned site on 14th
Street, in continued hopes the Nassau
County Council on Aging may utilize
the property.
The Council on Aging had been con-
sidering the property, former site of
Humphrey's Memorial Hospital and
later a county annex, but the county
and city of Fernandina Beach could
not come to an agree-
ment on splitting the
cost of demolishing
the existing building.
The cost, estimated
at around $420,000,
would include -
asbestos abatement :(l
and other environ-
mental protections. Childers
Ultimately, con-
cerns about asbestos
and possible medical waste at the site
prompted the Council on Aging -which
must relocate from its current Baptist
Medical Center-owned location by 2011
- to consider other properties on
Amelia Island. However, Fernandina
Beach City Commissioner Eric
Childers continued to push for the 14th
Street site at Monday's County
Commission meeting.

Beach construction 'success'


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Beachgoers who are worried
about the beaches of Fernandina dis-
appearing can put their minds at rest
According to coastal project manag-
er Erik Olsen, those sharp sand drop-
offs, called scarps, are supposed to
happen as a result of the Nassau
County Shore Protection Project.
Olsen, president of consultants
Olsen Associates of Jacksonville,
made a brief presentation at a city
commission meeting Oct. 21 on the
nearing completion of a federally-
funded beach construction project.
Calling it a "relatively small proj-
ect" for North Florida, Olsen said
the beach it creates has a 40-foot
design width. It is intended to be


main -
iS-drN tained
every five
years, but
i~ will also
have sand added through annual
maintenance dredging of the St.
Mary^Entrance Navigation Channel.
Paid for by the U.S. Navy, this annu-
al project adds beach-quality sand to
either Fort Clinch or the beaches of
Fernandina.
Because of the beach renourish-
ment, said Olsen, "the shoreline is
probably better than it was in the
1970s."
Olsen also explained that,
because of the project, there is now
more dry beach at high tide than
ever, with some seasonal variation.
Winter beaches tend to be narrower


than summer beaches due to winter
storms and varying of wave energy.
Because of equilibration, or how
the sand will stabilize over time, the
sand fill is miuh wider than fhe
design calls for, said Olsen, and it
may appear to beachgoers that the
beach is disappearing, but that is not
the case. The sand is meant to extend
1,000 feet offshore to form a natural
foundation for the dry beach. ,
"More than half is intended to
slide down," said Olsen. It will take
anywhere from six months to two
years for the beach to take its natu-
ral shape.
Sharp drop-offs of sand, known
as scarps, can form in the dry beach,
said Olsen, because the sand is

Amelia Island Plantation secures a partner


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader


The Amelia Island Co. has agreed
to a partnership that could lead to mil-
lions of dollars worth of improvements
to Amelia Island Plantation.
The company announced Tuesday
it has signed a letter of intent with
Redquartz Developments Atlanta, a
real estate investment company affili-
ated with Redquartz Developments,
Ltd., a property and investment com-
pany based in Dublin, Ireland.
Many of the details remain to be
worked out, and it is not yet clear pre-


cisely how the partnership will work.
There is no indication the Plantation is
being sold, though Redquartz bought
the Marriott Sawgrass Resort and Spa
in Ponte Vedra in 2006.
Rather, the Amelia Island Co. said
in a press release it "has been pursu-
ing prospective investors, partners and
lenders during the past two years for
capital improvements to its hospitality
resort business. While many more
details are to be worked out, the com-
pany and Redquartz have signed a let-
ter of intent to devise a partnership
which will help fuel several initial proj-
ects including building the Amelia


Links Lodge and other core resort
facilities."
One of four Plantation golf courses,
Amelia Links, designed by Pete Dye
and Bobby Weed, is a 36-hole config-
uration including two signature cours-
es, Oak Marsh and Ocean Links. The
lodge was proposed in 2006 to pro-
vide additional rooms and facilities to
enhance the Plantation's reputation as
a destination golf resort.
"After searching for a couple of
years for the right partnership, this
opportunity with Redquartz
Developments Atlanta will allow us to
enhance the top-flight amenities and


accommodations our guests expect at
Amelia Island Plantation," said Jack
Healan, president of Amelia Island Co.,
in the press release. "Redquartz is an
outstanding company which made the
commitment to this partnership based
largely on the strength of our man-
agement team, strategic plan and long
range goals."
Redquartz, headed by Patrick
(Paddy) Kelly, is invested in projects
with more than $3 billion of value.
According to its website, "Redquartz
Developments has over 40 years' expe-
rience in property development and
consultancy in Ireland, Europe and


the U.SA We specialize in the cre-
ation of mixed-use developments to
include commercial, residential, retail,
hotels, medical and leisure facilities.
Our philosophy is all about partner-
ships that offer access to expertise
and resources in addition to reducing
the risk profile of individual projects."
The Irish company bought the
Marriott Sawgrass Resort and Spa for
$150-200 million, according to reports,
arranging a loan from Goldman Sachs
Commercial Mortgage Capital LP to
buy a majority interest in the 508-room

withdrawn from this?" County
Commissioner Mike Boyle
asked.
"It has not been withdrawn.
What occurred is that ... fear
was generated over the possi-
bility of environmental contam-
ination," Childers said. "... It is
quite convoluted how we can
get through all this."
Childers insisted that given
lthe limited space on the island,
the 14th Street location was the
best choice for the Council on
Aging. "I would personally like
to see us move forward on this
as expeditiously as possible with
the county," he said. "My point
is that with all the squawk about
green space on the island, if we
could put this on 14th Street,
that's where it belongs."
He added that engineering
consulting firm Gillette and
Associates had offered to do a
phase 1 environmental study of
the property for $1,500 a sub-
stantial discount over their usual
fee. "If this commission will see
lit to contract with Gillette and
Associates to do that phase 1
(study) as a show of good faith,
I will fight this battle every step
of the way (with the city com-
mission)," he said.


TAX Continued from 1A
increase, Nassau County's bed
tax would be comparatively low.
"In the area that I'm familiar
with (Northwest Florida), no
one collects at less than 4 per-
cent," she said.
"As far as our competitors
(in Northeast Florida), what are
they doing?" Boyle asked. Neal
said the surrounding, counties
all had higher tax rates, even
taking into account the pro-
posed increase.
"So I'm hearing that (the
increase) would still leave us at
the bottom tier," Boyle said. "...
The bed tax and I want to
make sure people understand


Childers also said the antag-
onism that had characterized
previous dealings on the issue
between the city and county was
counterproductive. "This idea
of inequity, I think it's archaic,"
he said. "... Assuming an adver-
sarial posture is not the place
to start."
Boyle agreed. "This turf bat-
tle that seems to go on doesn't
benefit anybody, as you point-
ed out"
Childers pointed out that
locating the Council on Aging at
the 14th Street site would ben-
efit the economy as the old hos-
pital did. "(The property) has
been an economic engine since
it's been there, and it will con-
tinue to be an economic engine
if the Council on Aging comes
there," he said. "They're going
to employ dietitians and physi-
cians' assistants it will bring
jobs."
County Commission Chair
Marianne Marshall urged the
board to move forward with the
plan. "If we don't take care our
seniors, who will?" she said.
Childers agreed, but cau-
tioned that the hardest part
would be forging a lasting agree-
ment among all concerned par-
ties. Particularly difficult would
be swaying the city to provide


this is only collected on Amelia
Island, and it's only collected at
the hotels and bed-and-break-
fasts. ... This increase is basi-
cally only going to be collected
from visitors to Nassau County."
Several local business own-
ers said they supported the
increase. "'This is very impor-
tant to us," said Harry Krix of
the Historic Fernandina
Business Association. "The pro-
motion of Amelia Island as a
tourist destination is very impor-
tant."
Amelia Island Plantation rep-
resentative Jack Healan agreed.
"This is very important to our
industry," he said. "'We're way
behind other counties in our


$250,000 in matching funds for
the eventual demolition of the
site's existing building.
"Everyone says, 'We want to
support this, we want to sup-
port this,' and then there's that
inevitable 'but,"' he said. "And as
a professional car salesman, I
can tell you that everything
'before 'but' is meaningless."
"If we do get the money from
the city, let's make sure we
make a good-faith effort to move
forward as fast as possible,"
County Commissioner Stacy
Johnson said.
'We only have X number of
months (until the Council on
Aging has to relocate), so we
have to move forward,".
Marshall said.'
Another consideration is that
the Council on Aging has
received a state grant of
$500,000 for a new building, but
grant requirements say the non-
profit must have a plan in place
by July 2009.
Boyle and County Commis-
sioner Jim B. Higginbotham vol-
unteered to split the cost of the
phase 1 study between their dis-
cretionary funds, and the board
approved the plan 4-0. Commis-

ability to promote tourism. ...
We very much support the
increase in the tax."
'We'd like to wholehearted-
ly endorse this as a long-over-
due measure to help the most
important industry on the
island," said James Shroads,
chairman of the Amelia Island-

"Because (the beach) is

It is up to the city, he said, to

in June and ended this month,

"It's been a very tough time

Goldman said last month,
acknowledging that 3 percent
of the Plantation's 1,100

But, Goldman said, the
company was optimistic and

Keep faith: real estate



market due to revive


The topic of the real estate market and
accompanying reports of positive news have
not appeared in the same sentence for some
time.
This may be changing, however. Several
reports released this week reveal positive
developments. While temporary in nature,
these are the types of favorable trends neces-
sary to revive this once mighty, but now mori-
bund, sector.
For instance, new home sales and existing
home sales in the U.S. both climbed unex-
pectedly in September. New home, sales
bounced off a 17-year low in August to post a
2.7 percent increase.
And existing home sales rose 5.5 percent
in September -.to the highest level of activi-
ty in more than a year. Home sales in the
West contributed the most to the increased
activity. This could be due to foreclosure sales
in California, Arizona and Nevada, however.
While the rebounds are probably unsus-
tainable, with a glut of housing inventory and
a slowing economy, they nonetheless may "
provide a glimmer of hope for the future. To
complicate the housing picture, banks and
mortgage companies have tightened their
reins on lending due to financial uncertain-
ties.
Mortgage rates declined this past week,
after rising for some time. This could help
spur on real estate activity purchases and
refinances if it persists. The reduction in
rates is partly due to government interven-
tion aimed at loosening up the credit markets.
In Florida, the real estate market has suf-
fered a severe decline after soaring above
most U.S; markets for years. However, a sur-
prising calm has emerged here.
Accoidi*g to a new University of Florida
survey, so-called real estate experts here
have not lost faith. They maintain that Florida

is "a place to be and a place
to invest," according to the
report.
The survey focused on
S real estate trends in the
state. It is based on the
responses of 392 property
appraisers, brokers and
other service providers.
A key concern among
STEVE'S those surveyed is the avail-
MAIR ET ability of credit to finance
PILACE real estate activity. This con-
cern extends from the glob-
al credit crisis
Steve Nicklas While Florida's down-
turn is worse than most
states, the appeal of moving here remains -
especially for Baby Boomers seeking out a
mild climate, beaches and extensive outdoor
activities including fishing and golf.
Unfortunately, the sudden downturn in the
stock market along with the decline in hous-
ing values has forced some soon-to-be
retirees to reconsider or delay their plans.
This will continue to impact the annual migra-
tion here from retirees or second-home buy-
ers from other parts of the country.
The respondents to the University of
Florida survey expressed hope that the shock
waves from the credit crisis will not derail the
recovery in the real estate market here.
Respondents indicated that they are "keeping
the faith that they may have seen the worst
and the shock will not be overwhelmingly
severe."
Faith. Hope. Confidence. These are words
we can cherish until a true recovery unfolds
in the financial markets.

7 believe in the future of down-
town.... It will be a jewel, in time.'
DON SHAW, DOWNTOWN BUSINESSMAN


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
A building on Centre Street
in downtown Fernandina Beach
that was most recently occupied
by Bank of America may be
turned into a restaurant or retail
space.
Don Shaw, who owns Books
Plus on Centre Street, bought
the building in September.
Shaw, who serves on the
Waterfronts Florida Partnership
Committee, says he bought the
building because he is "very
community oriented" and hated
to see it sitting empty and
unused.
"I bought the Bank of
America building because I
believe in the future of down-
town," said Shaw. "'We'll alter it
accordingly and build it so the
community is proud of it."
He said he is also looking
forward to the upcoming devel-
opment of the downtown water-
front.
"The waterfront is going to
be wonderful," said Shaw. "I'inm
seeing some real interesting
stuff happening downtown.... It


According to architect Nick
Gillette, the project is still in the
early stages, but preliminary
plans call for demolition of the
bank drive-through structure in
back. The demolition will
increase parking spaces from
16 to 27. The interior and exte-
rior of the building will be ren-
ovated, but there will be no addi-
tions to the 5,800-square-foot
structure. The main entrance
will stay facing Centre Street,
and there will be improvements
to outside lighting and possibly
a patio area on the side of the
building.
Because the building, which
was built in the 1970s, is in the
historic district, the demolition
will have to go before the
Historic District Council for
approval.

New home starts down

in Northeast Florida


New single-family home per-
mits issued in Northeast Florida
were down slightly from August,
but off 34 percent compared to
September 2007.
Permits totaled 340 in
September, down from August's
permits of 349 and 515 permits
issued in September 2007.
There were 1,085 permits issued
in the third quarter, compared to
1,818 in the second quarter and
1,496 in the first quarter.
"A lot of people felt the wind
was getting back into their sails
the past few months, however,
the global economic turbulence
the past two weeks has stopped
the forward movement," said
Bryan Lendry, owner of Brylen
Homes, who has monitored per-
mit data for several years.
Permit levels are lower now
than they were in 1993, when
Nassau County new home starts
were not counted, he said.
"When this housing and eco-
nomic event does change, new
home inventory will be at his-
toric lows," Lendry said. "When
the recovery happens, the com-
petition may not necessarily be
a new home versus a new home,
it could be a new home versus a
resale or foreclosed home."
Duval County issued 157 per-
mits in September, Nassau had
22, St. Johns 108 and Clay
reported 53.
Permits issued in Duval in
September, 157, were down 6
percent from August's 166. St.
Johns County permits were
down 8 percent in September
from August to 108 from 117.


Nassau County's 22 new
home permits were down from
the 29 issued in August, and
Clay County's September per-
mits issued were up 16 to 53
compared to 37 in August.
, There were 285 new home
permits issued the first nine
months of this year in NaSsau,
compared to 536 in 2007 and
865 in 2006.
The Florida Home Builders
Association reported builders' i
confidence in the market for
newly built single-family homes
rose for the first time in seven
months in September accord-
ing to the National Association
of Home Builders/Wells Fargo
Housing Market Index.
"Nearly half of the builders in
our September survey indicated
that they expect to see a positive
impact from the tax credit in
their market areas," said NAHB
Chief Economist David Seiders.
"Of those respondents, 20 per-
cent said their market has
already experienced some of
this effect. Meanwhile, con-
sumer confidence has risen and
inore households are saying that
now is a good time to buy a
home. All of these factors, along
with the recent downward move-
ments in mortgage rates, sug-
gest that new-home sale will be
stabilizing in the final quarter
of the year."
The data is compiled the first
of the month from city and coun-
ty building departments by the
Northeast, Florida Builders
Association for Clay, Duval,
Nassau and St. Johns counties.

Shaw said he was hoping to
open a family-oriented restau-
rant, "somewhere between
Applebee's and McDonald's"
and would try to keep menu
prices down.
Shaw, who initially made his
money in self-service Laundro-
.mats in Massachusetts, said he
opened the bookstore because
of his love of books.
He moved to Fernandina
Beach in 1995, he said, because
of the "little change in seasons"
and because he believes
Fernandina Beach is a "very
fine community."
At one time Shaw owned
about 11 buildings in Fernan-
dina Beach, he said, but he has
since sold most of them and
now owns about five, including
several on Centre Street.

WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 29.2008 NEWS News-Leader


HAUNTED Continued from 1A
the old school, there was only
one remedy for that: the pistol
in his coat pocket.
According to the Feb. 9,
1884, Florida Mirror- a paper
which would eventually become
the News-Leader Eppes con-
fronted Suhrer on the porch of
the Mansion House about 5:30
p.m. A shot cracked the air and
Suhrer fell, a bullet in his chest.
According to eyewitness
reports of the incident, Suhrer
asked Eppes why he'd shot him.
"You insulted my wife one
week ago today," Eppes said.
"I may be a dead man, Jeff,
but before God I did not,"
Suhrer insisted.
Suhrer was right on both
counts. He was a dead man he
expired eight or 10 hours later
- and he had never laid a hand
on Celeste Eppes. Celeste had
invented the story in an attempt
to make her husband jealous.
"She was trying to get him to
stay home more, because he
worked for the railroad and was
gone all the time," said Brenda
Brubeck, Elderhostel coordi-
nator for the Amelia Island
Museum of History. Celeste
had just wanted her husband
to pay more attention to his
marriage. Instead, he went out
and gunned down his make-
believe rival.
It's the "Jeff' in this story,
that gets to me; Suhrer's
diminutive of Eppes' middle
name implies a familiarity
between the two. Indeed, Eppes
had boarded for years at the
Mansion House, moving out
only shortly before the murder.
Nowadays, when a friend is pay-


ing too much attention to your
significant other you tell him to
lay off- or, if you're old-school,
sock him in the face. Back then
you shot him.

The haunting
of Eppes House
After Eppes' arrest, guilt
finally got the better of Celeste.
"She was really distraught about
(her lie) and she finally fessed
up about it, and he got off on 'fits
of jealousy,'" Brubaker said.
From there, the record starts
to get fuzzy; legend becomes
intertwined with fact until the
two are hard to distinguish. It is
certain that the Eppeses lived in
their newly built house for a
time after Jeff's acquittal, but
according to Brubeck, the
island eventually became too
hot to hold them. "They were
told to leave. They left on the
rail, and they wouldn't tell any-
one where they were going,"
she said.
According to legend,
Celeste's guilt destroyed her
mind and eventually her life.
"A real good friend of hers final-
ly tracked them down, and
(Celeste Eppes) had just died
in an insane asylum," Brubeck
said.
So heavily did Celeste Eppes'
guilt weigh upon her, in fact,
that it reportedly outlived her
physical form. Sightings of her
spirit, said to haunt a second-
floor bedroom of Eppes House,
began shortly after her death. In
fact, Celeste's ghost is reputed
to have actually spoken to the
next resident of the house,
telling her it wore the mark of
Cain and was therefore cursed.

If Celeste still haunts her old
home today, she appears to have
toned down the gloom and
doom. Recent residents don't
report seeing her physical form
- or even anything particularly
scary.
"Actually, we never saw any-
thing odd, but the day that we
left, we both had an odd expe-
rience individually," said Marie
Corbett, who, with her husband
Eric, owned the house immedi-
ately before Humphreys. "The
day we moved, I was walking
through the house and crying,
I loved that house so much. I
was upstairs, and I was walking
through the house and one of
the lights went off in one of the
rooms. It was the room that was
supposedly haunted. Then the
light turned itself back on.
When my husband was there,
the kick-plate on the central vac
kept moving over and turning
on. Never anything scary,
though."
"I know that iPods turn
themselves on in the middle of
the night in that room, but that's
about the limit of the spiritual
activity I've seen," Humphreys
said.
Humphreys' realtor, Rick
Househeldt, said he once saw a
chair in the haunted room swiv-
el of its own accord. "But that
could have been anything," he
pointed out.

A night in a
haunted mansion
Househeldt met me at
Eppes House on Sunday as the
sun was going down. "My
friends decided the best idea
would be to come over here

tonight and scare the living day-
lights out of you," he said, "but
I convinced them not to." I
offered him a weak thank-you
as he led the way up the short
brick walk to the porch.
The first thing I noticed
about Eppes House was that it
doesn't look particularly haunt-
ed; it's just a handsome
Victorian house on an island
full of them. Perhaps it would be
more menacing if it were iso-
lated up on a hill, buried in
some deep forest but it's locat-
ed in downtown Fernandina
Beach's historic district, neigh-
bored by other stately Victorian
homes.
The second thing I noticed
was that the doors didn't squeak
ominously. No disembodied
voices warned me to leave,
either. Househeldt showed me
around briefly, told me to call
him if there was trouble and
wished me a trifle ominously,
I thought good luck. Then he
left me alone.
Humphreys, along with pre-
vious owners, has modernized
the place without sacrificing its
Victorian charm. The house fea-
tures a state-of-the-art kitchen
and a pool, among' other
improvements. Instead of sheet-
covered divans and cobwebs in
the drawing room, I ericoun-
tered recliners and a flat-screen
plasma television, complete
with surround sound. The old
hardwood floors are original,
though, as is the narrow stair-
case leading up to the haunted
room.
The room itself is' large and
airy, with high ceilings, a bay
window and, like most major
rooms in the house, a fireplace.
The walls are painted: cheery
yellow. I sat down in a desk
chair the very one Househeldt
said he'd seen move of its own
accord and tried to imagine
how a spirit could stay restless
in such an inviting place.

RYAN SMIT i/NlEWS-L ADERl
The ghost of Celeste Eppes supposedly haunts this room
at Eppes House, 31 South 10th St. Celeste's ghost is
reputed to be guilty because her jealous husband,
Thomas Jefferson Eppes, murdered an innocent man in
1884.


My contentment didn't last
long. It wasn't fear that inter-
rupted my sunny thoughts, but
a sudden realization of the
sheer amount of history locked
up with me in Eppes House. All
old houses have ghosts, you
see perhaps not restless spir-
its, but there are ghosts of a
sort in the weight of accumu-
lated memory. Thomas
Jefferson Eppes stalked these
halls over a century ago, his
unpunished crime staining his
soul. And Celeste, too did she
live here in fear of her murder-
ous husband? Did the guilt over
her role in that murder, as the
.legends say, finally drive her
mad?
And then there were the
smaller questions. Those
gouges in the banister rail look
as old as the house; how did
they get there? Where was the
stone for the living room fire-
place quarried? You could live
here for years, decades, and


never run out of little mysteries,
miniature history lessons. Even
if Celeste's ghost declined to
make an appearance, I decid-
ed, the night would be well
worth my time.
I sat for awhile, waiting for a
ghostly woman to come and
talk to me, or the lights to cut
off, or blood to run down the
walls. None of that happened. I
did hear a loud clatter some-
where downstairs at one point,
but I decided wisely, I thought
- not to go investigate. Probably
just the house settling.
Finally, J climbed into a day
bed that would not have looked
out of place in 1885 and opened
a book about the Civil War. I
read for awhile, still waiting for
Celeste. She never showed, so
around 1 a.m. I went to sleep.
And dreamed I heard, from
the other end of some far cor-
ridor of history, a woman weep-
ing. Softly.

How to avoid 'least worse choice


C change.
This word has been used ad nause-
um over the past two years by all pres-
idential candidates plus numerous oth-
ers. Unfortunately, no one is talking about the
biggest change needed a change in the way
we elect a president. Today's process is based
on bribery and personality, not on capability to
do the job. Bribery to get the funds from peo-
ple and companies that have an ax to grind and
personality in front of an audience, TV or other-
wise. Where are the issues of intelligence,
knowledge of world affairs, statesmanship and
training, for the most powerful position in the
world, leader of the U.SA?
When the Constitution was written, only
landed gentry were allowed to vote. The selec-
tion of who would run for president was con-
trolled by the two political parties. The candi-
dates were known to most of the voters so an
intelligent decision was usually made. George
Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James
Madison and Abraham Lincoln are some of the
results of this system.
Since then, women and all men have joined
the voting pool. Very few people today know
the candidates and have to rely on the ava-
lanche of news media, ads and public relations
papers to come to a decision. This usually
results in most people voting, as in both my
wife's and my case, not for a candidate but
against one. It is a case of who is the "least
worse choice." Hardly the best scenario to
choose a president.
Another issue is the length of time of the
campaign. Two years with money flowing like
water to'pick a so so candidate is far too long,
wasteful and boring. After a while, lots of peo-
ple tune out to the "circus" and miss learning
what is really different about the party plat-
forms and the candidates' ideas. The last two
elections are a case in point, as is the current.


one.
Is there a better way? I sure hope so. Let us
look at the Europeans, not because that is the
type of parliamentary process we need, but to
see what we could learn from their election sys-
tem. If we find some good points then we could
modify them to make them truly American.
First, the prime ministers of European coun-
tries are the leaders of a given political party.
They have been in politics for many years, in
several posts, perhaps including being at cabi-
net level. They have had lots of training on
their way up the ladder and they have shown
capability in various positions. They must then
have been elected by their party, not the popu-
lar vote, to be the leader who will lead them
into the next election. If their party is success-
ful, they will be prime minister.
All of this goes on outside of the election
process The party leaders are elected or con-
firmed at an annual party congress. Everyone
knows who these people are so they are in the
spotlight until they resign or are defeated as
party leader. The actual election process takes
about six weeks, from the time it is called until
the results are in. The winning party takes over
the government, the party leader becomes the
prime minister and a cabinet is formed.
What is attractive about this system? First,
the training potential prime ministers get as
they climb the ladder, along with the exposure
of how they perform at these lower level posi-
tions. Second, the short election cycle. Third,
the reduction in bribery necessary to fund
these candidates.
What is. not attractive? The simultaneous
election of the prime minister and the govern-
ment from the same party. This sometimes
occurs here, the president and Congress
majorities are from the same party, but it is not
a foregone conclusion.
So how could we design a presidential elec-


tion process for the 21st century America?
Start by developing a set of characteristics
desired in a president. These would include
many years in managerial positions with steadi-
ly increasing responsibilities. A dose of interna-
tional experience, preferably obtained from liv-
ing overseas for a while, is a must. Some
limited time in governmental positions would
be a plus. Experience weighing two competing
sides of an issue and the statesmanship to
'choose the "right" solution would be nice.
Then have each party select their presiden-
tial candidate at the party congress, not
through primaries. With TV and the Internet,
there is no need for candidates to travel all over
the country to kiss babies and squeeze the
flesh of a small minority of voters. For minor
parties, such as Libertarians or the Green
party, set a minimum 5 percent vote cast at con-
gressional elections to be included in the
national, presidential, election.
Initiate the actual campaigning cycle no
more than two months before the election.
Either set funding limits for the candidates or
public fund the election.
Stop the debates. American presidents do
not debate whilst governing. This is in contrast
to the Europeans who have a much more
debating type system. Debates simply reinforce
personality issues. They do nothing to expose
who would be a good president. I would much
rather have an intelligent, introverted person
as president than a glib extrovert.
No one doubts the current system is bro-
ken. Look at the choices and hoopla in this
year's fiasco. It will be a case of the "least
worse choice" for my wife and me again this
year. Let's take the opportunity to rework the
presidential election process into a really pro-
fessional activity that gets us presidents we
can all be proud of and who are capable of
leading us through the turbulent times ahead.


Anapology
Answers are something everyone is looking
for these days. Before answering the question
why, I will give you the'reasons for my actions.
I was married to a woman that I loved very
much, after losing a son, Spc. Richard D. Miner
Jr., who fought in Operation Enduring Freedom
and Operation Iraqi Freedom, and when I lost a
job I had for almost 20 years, I didn't think things
could get any worse.
Then my wife told me she didn't love me any-
more. Being the alcoholic I am, I was hurt and
felt sorry for myself and went to my relief drink-
ing. So, on Aug. 29,2007,1 left my home with my
work clothes and other items I felt I needed.
That night I agreed with her our 18-year marriage
was over. So that evening I left, went to the fam-
ily farm just a little more than a mile from my
home. I sat in the old barn and began trying to
drink away my problems and think about what
I was to do next. After drinking and thinking I
began to miss home and my wife; realizing that
I still loved her I called her to see if I could come
home.
This is where I made the worst mistake any-
one could make and due to the amount of alco-
hol I drank I can't recall much of that night, but
I know I ended up arrested and in the back of a
patrol car. This is when the real issue began. In
1987, I was in a head-on collision that killed the
other driver and came very close to killing me.
'My shoulder and other areas of my body were
pretty messed up.
During my healing process I never went back
to have my shoulder put back in the proper posi- .
tion, so when it healed it wasn't right. While in
the patrol car I began to have severe pain in my
shoulder and I asked the officer to give me some
relief from the handcuffs. After not getting the
relief I wanted I began to say things that put me
in the position I am in today.
I have learned never to threaten a cop who is
only doing his job. And when you take it as far
as I did you are bound to be in some deep trou-
ble. I am deeply sorry for the things I have said
to the officer and his family and I hope one day
they all will find it in their hearts to forgive me.
J truly am sorry.
I wasn't mad at anyone. I had just reached a
point in my life where any more pain was hard
to deal with. I have been sober now for some time
and I have a whole new outlook on life, and I look
forward to living again.

An article on the opinion page of the Oct. 22
paper presented only one side of proposed
Amendment 2. The writer expressed many fears'
she feels may befall us if Amendment 2 fails to
pass. I would like to respond to some of the
points made in the article.
The text of the amendment goes beyond mar-
riage to include any "legal union that is treated
as marriage or the substantial equivalent." This
can easily be interpreted to mean civil unions so
it certainly is about rights. It may also be inter-
preted to include domestic partnerships. If the
drafters of the amendment really only intended
for it to be about marriage, why did they include
this broader, poorly defined wording?
The number of people it would apply to is
irrelevant. This is not about majority or minori-
ty rule. If same-sex couples could marry (and
they cannot under existing Florida law), it would
not take anything away from or impose anything
on the "majority." Churches are granted many
exceptions to existing laws. They do not pay
taxes, their sanctuary buildings are not required
to comply with the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA) and they can require their employees
to conform to their religious tenets. They can
even refuse to allow women access to the priest-
hood. Therefore it is highly unlikely that priests
would be forced to marry same-sex couples.
They regularly refuse to marry heterosexual
couples not meeting their standards now.
Previous generations and civilizations also
held dear the notion that slavery was good busi-
ness, people with skin color other than the major-'
ity were inferior and women lacked sufficient
intelligence to vote. Not all change is bad.
I am heterosexual and married, so personal-
ly I have nothing to gain if the amendment pass-

It's difficult for an elderly guy not to be tempt-
ed by the varied electoral comments the News-
Leader has been publishing.
Only because of extensive international and
domestic electoral system experience, the
Department of State recruited me as a retired
Career Foreign Service Officer to represent the
U.S. as a "supervisor" for a full dozen foreign
electoral processes, from Mozambique, El
Salvador (two times), Peru and Paraguay to
Bosnia (three times), Croatia and Kosovo (two.
times).
These official USG assignments varied, being
"seconded" to different international organiza-
tions, the United Nations (UN), the Organization
of American States (OAS) and the Office of
Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE),
all multi-lateral organizations. U.S participation
in all of these diverse electoral processes always
was an important, even an imperative, part of an
international team.
Some very basic lessons learned:
1. A credible registration system that clear-
ly identifies, and includes, all eligible voters.
2. The inclusion of well-oriented political
party poll monitors to oversee the voting process.
3. Total transparency with political party
representatives, and with the media, bearing,
"witness."
4. The credibility of the process is absolute-
ly imperative.
Some operational differences do exist. Many
other nations see themselves as participatory
democracies where every citizen has not just a
right, but a absolute obligation to vote. In some
countries, if you don't vote/participate, you might
be stripped of your driver's license, your Social
Security benefits etc. That's how seriously par-
ticipatory democracy is taken in other parts of the
world.
Of course, there is constant human failure in
finding informed voters. Overseas citizens appear
to be far better informed than our American
electorate. Our "imperfection" in participatory
democracy seems to rest there. It's not just
school kids who are not doing their "homework"

Crime in Nassau County
I was very interested to see the front-page arti-
cle in the Oct. 24 News-Leader, "1% of felonies go
to trial." Being an engineer I like to have facts and
data, not just words and emotions, when I look
at any problem.
When I read the article, which was based on
an interview with Stephen Bledsoe, assistant


state attorney, a reason given for this lower ate of
trials was that Nassau has a relatively low rate of
violent crime. However, the violent crime rate
was not shown in the article.
I took another look at the Police Report and
Court Report published in the Oct. 22 edition of
the News-Leader. The Police Report for felony
arrests for the week of Oct. 13-19 included 26
arrests, and four appeared to me to be violent
crimes: aggravated assault, aggravated assault
with a concealed weapon, domestic battery and
battery on a pregnant female. Four out of 26
equals 15 percent of the arrests appeared to be
violent that week. Perhaps 15 percent is con-
sidered relatively low by some.
I grew up in a Massachusetts town of about
65,000, similar in population to Nassau County.
I believe violent crimes, at that time, were clos-
er to four/year than four/week. Four violent
crimes per week seems relatively high to me,
compared to other places I have lived.
From scanning the police and court reports
in prior News-Leader editions it seems to me that
Nassau County has quite a few drug arrests.
Using the Oct. 22 News-Leader edition there
were 10 drug-related arrests of the 26 arrests for
the week of Oct. 13, or 38 percent of the total
arrests that week. Looking at the Court Report
in the same News-Leader edition from the Oct 16
docket, there were 18 drug cases of 38, which
was 47 percent of the felony court cases.
To me the number of arrests, violent crimes
and drug-related crimes all seem to be high for
a county this size. In addition, the percentage of
crimes that are drug-related seems high, and is
perhaps an underlying cause of other crimes
here.
I believe the Nassau County arrest record
on crimes is relatively good. I admire our local
law enforcement officers who risk their lives to
make these arrests week after week. Recognizing
the risks to the officers involved, it might be
interesting to know how many arrests involve
repeat offenders.
Perhaps the News-Leader could include the
percentage of violent crimes and the percent-
age of drug-related crimes with the published
police reports and the court reports in the future,
so we can all become more aware of this prob-
lem.
Perhaps the Nassau Sheriff's Office, the
Fernandina Beach Police Department and the
Clerk of Courts could provide that analysis to the
News-Leader. Not many people will read all the
arrest reports and court reports each week and
then calculate the percent of violent and drug-
related crimes, but if the News-Leader publishes
it for them it will increase awareness. Increased
awareness can lead to increased support for
improvements that could lower the crime rate in
Nassau County.
Perhaps someone could write an article, or
viewpoint, about Nassau County's efforts to pre-
vent drug-related crime problems compared to
what leading cities and counties are doing.

Dragons on tt


f I'm not busy watching
butterflies in my back-
yard, I'm watching drag-
onflies. Like butterflies,
they are diversely colorful
and busy all the time. Instead
of sipping nectar, though,
these insects are killers.
It is partly due to dragon-
fly nymphs (young ones) in
our backyard retention pond
that we seem to have fewer
mosquitoes in our yard com-
pared toother residents in
our subdivision that live bor-
dering woods, with no pond.
The small minnows
(Gambusia) in the pond also
do their share in eating pond-
based mosquito larvae. All
this useful predation happens
underwater out of sight.
But the adult dragonflies
do their own bug removal
service right out there in the
open, zipping and hovering
above the pond and the back-
yard vegetation. They like to
perch on tall grass stalks or
twigs, high above the ground,
where they can easily spot
their prey and then zoom in
for the kill. I've been told that
if you are in an area with lots
of dragonflies the
Okefenokee for instance -
and you stand with your fin-
ger held motionless high in
the air, a dragonfly will land
on it, using it as a perch. I've
tried this in my own back-
yard, but either there are not
enough dragonflies or I'm not
patient enough. Well before a
dragonfly decides that my
perch is suitable, my arm gets
tired and I get sick of the
experiment and move on to
other pursuits.
During mating season for
dragonflies, they risk their life


for the
chance to
procreate.
My husband
Bucko and I
*.. -.. B spent one
fun after-
S noon on our
^ backyard
deck watch-
WILD ing dragon-
WAYS flies mating.
This is not
as boring as
Pat it might
Foster- Turley seem, due in
large part to
the kestrel waiting on the
power line in the background,
watching too. As soon as a
pair of dragonflies coupled
and were clumsily preoccu-
pied, the kestrel swooped
down and nabbed them -
dragonfly dinner. However
much we tried, working in
unison, we could not get pho-
tos of this activity. Bucko
trained his binoculars on the
kestrel and when it left the
pole he alerted me, and I shot
a photo of the coupled drag-
onflies, hoping to catch the
quick instant of contact. The
kestrel was always too fast for
me, but it was fun trying.
It isn't only kestrels that
eat dragonflies in our yard
either. From mid-summer
through the fall banana spi-
ders (golden orb spiders) set
up shop in the vegetation
along the edge of the pond.
Every few days when I check
their webs Ill find a dead
dragonfly wrapped in silk,
awaiting consumption. I enjoy
the banana spiders, too, but I
must admit that I like the
dragonflies better. If I happen
to be there at the moment


ie fly

that a dragonfly gets tangled
in the web, I have no com-
punctions about releasing it.
The spider can easily repair
its web, but the dragonfly is
dead meat if not rescued.
And dragonflies return the
favor in their own special way.
Not only do they help keep
my backyard relatively insect-
free, they also do their work
at the beach. On those days
when the wind blows in from
the west, and stirs up all the
terrible no-see-ums, those
nearly invisible biting gnats,
the resident dragonflies are
called into service. One par-
ticular dawn in the sand
dunes recently, the world was
abuzz with flitting dragonflies,
masses of them, sweeping
and hovering and eating
gnats. A beautiful sight it was,
but not for long. The dragon-
flies had far more gnats than
they could consume, and I
had far more skin available
for the gnats themselves to
consume.
After a few quick shots
of my camera, trying mostly
in vain to catch the action, I
left the beach for the insects
'to fight over and headed
home.
Worldwide, biologists con-
sider the number of species
of dragonflies in an area to be
a strong indicator of the
health of the ecosystem and
the biodiversity of the site. A
number of dragonfly species
inhabit our Nassau County
world, but the types are
declining, along with the rest
of our biodiversity. Some
species, more than others,
are more adaptable to human-
modified habitats, and these

Experiencing


a foreign land -


up close, personal


MEREDITH WILSON
For the News-Leader
"I honestly didn't expect
this to be that hard," I
thought, as I once again
marched out of the Tsinghua
University Foreign Students
Affairs Office.
"Some office," I huffed, as
I got in an elevator bound for
the 10th floor. This was my
third time at the office in the
past two days trying to get to
the front of the line or the
essence of line; it was honest-
ly hard to tell where the back
of the line was. All I had was a
simple question. But of
course, all 40 of us crowded
into that Foreign Students
Affairs Office had simple
questions, right? Like, if I
have a multi-entry "L" visa,
can I get it extended without
having to leave China? Or, if I
want to go to Hong Kong on
October holiday, but I have a
single entry "F" visa, how can
I change it to a "X" visa?
Well, maybe they were
harder questions than I
thought But the disorder and
annoyance of the crowd was
obvious outside the room des-
ignated for visa questions.
After a few hours of standing
in line, the result was receiv-
ing numbered slips of paper,
telling us to return tomorrow.
When we returned the next
day, we were greeted with
"First come, first serve,"
roughly translated into "He
who has the most nerve and
most determination to edge
their way to the front of line;
have at it!" Yes, questions
were finally answered, visas
were finally changed and pass-
ports were finally returned,
but not easily or promptly.
These frustrations highlight
just a few of a foreign stu-
dent's challenges the first few
weeks of foreign exchange
study.
My fellow exchange stu-
dents and I also never counted
on our advisors from the
Tsinghua University not being
able to speak English. Now, '
"Speak the language of the
country you're in" is my.per-
sonal favorite soapbox, but as
foreign exchange students
(some having studied no pre-
vious Chinese), we did expect
our advisors and schedules to
be in Chinese with English
translations! However, as soon


as a schedule written in cur-
sive Chinese was laid in front
of our eyes, our exchanged
glances communicated that
we were on our own.
I have studied Chinese for
a year, but the vocabulary
involved in a course schedul-
ing is not usually taught in
your first year studying a lan-
guage. Not to mention that
course schedules are compli-
cated enough in English!
Suddenly, I found myself fran-
tically trying to read a hand-
written Chinese schedule!
When I would ask questions
about course times and credit
hours, I received different
answers from different people
as to what each course was
actually about After much
trial and error, my courses
were selected and my sched-
ule was set, but not without a
few major headaches along
the way.
At the University of
Florida, as on all large college
campuses, bike riding is the
primary source of transporta-
tion. Many students at the
University of Florida use
bikes to get to and from class
every day. However, the
sheer magnitude of the bikers
at Tsinghua University
astounded me! I laughed to
myself one day; I never
thought I'd have to fight to
find a bike parking spot! But
that is an everyday reality.
Every single student lives on
campus, every single student
has a bike, and nearly every
single student has class every
day! So between classes or
during lunch, masses of bik-
ers take up nearly every inch
of available space on campus.
Imagine a huge crowd of peo-
ple going into a concert on
bikes; picture that many peo-
ple moving in the same direc-
tion a sea of bobbing heads
and pedaling feet
Now that's not so bad -
everyone can handle going in
one direction. Crossing traffic
is where it gets tricky. In the
U.S., we are used to waiting
for a break in the traffic.(and a
wide-open break, at'thar),
looking both ways and then
pulling out into a lane. Not so
in China. You look once, more
to get your bearings than any-
thing, spot a small unoccupied
space (a few feet is good), and
without looking back, charge
the unoccupied area! Just go.

SHANNON MALCOM/NEWS-LEADER

second from left, interim fire chief, said an older truck was traded in prior to pur-

'TV' lawyer speaks at YHS


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

Eddie Farah, a prominent
Jacksonville attorney who spe-
cializes in medical malpractice
and nursing home abuse cases,
spoke to Yulee High School
students planning careers in
the medical profession on the
laws that govern the medical
field in Florida.
At the request of Cheryl
Wilkes, class instructor and a
longtime acquaintance who-
works at YHS, Farah spent
three hours at the school.
"These students are in a
medical skills class, and we are
covering legal and- ethical
issues in healthcare, so I want-
ed to find someone who had
some legal experience in
he'althcare." Wilkes said. "I
originally, called iis officee and
asked, but then someone here
said she knew him and she
spoke to him as well."
Farah was open about the
fact that lawyers aren't always
popular, but he said the threat
of lawsuits makes nursing
homes, and hospitals, safer.
"Lawsuits hold people
accountable," he, said. "If
(health care professionals)
don't have to worry about law-
suits... of course, they're going
to be more lackadaisical about
how they run their operations."
But according to Farah, 90
to 95 percent of nursing homes
require the person entering the
home, or whoever is responsi-
ble for that person, to sign
"arbitration agreements" agree-
ing to waive their right to a jury
trial and instead accept arbi-
tration if a problem arises.
Farah said that's unfair, not-
ing nursing home operators
and employees often are famil-
iar with the people who sit on
arbitration panels, and that
many arbitrators in the field
have themselves worked at
nursing homes, giving the
nursing homes an unfair advan-
tage.
"You don't get a fair shake,"
he said. "There's pending leg-
islation now that would ... give
the person a chance to say, 'I'm
not going to waive my right to
a jury trial,' ... hopefully it will

,get passed before I get into a
nursing hornet."'
Several other restrictions
apply to medical malpractice
suits; Farah said. One law says
that if an adult dies as the result
of a medical mistake, only their
spouse or child under age of
25 can file a claim for damages.
"I don't have a wife, I don't
have children under the age of
25," Farah said. "If I die, there's


no one who can bring a claim."
A cap of $200,000 on mone-
tary awards for "pain and suf-
fering" has also been passed,
and Farah said it is more diffi-
cult to file a medical malprac-
tice suit than any other, civil
lawsuit.
'"They make you jump
through certain hurdles before
you can file," he said. "... It
takes several months before
you can even file the lawsuit...
a lot of people decide it's going
to cost too much to pursue."
Wilkes said her students
were all familiar with Farah
from his television commer-
cials and other advertising.
Initially, she said she wanted
Farah's visit to be a surprise
but "the cat got out of the bag
somehow."
Wilkes said she got a lot of
positive feedback from her stu-'
dents after the presentation.
"They said they enjoyed it,
that it was informative," she
said. "They were glad he could
take time out of his busy sched-
ule, that somebody they see on
TV ... would take the time to
come out to Yulee High School
and talk to us."

A mother who reportedly
assaulted a bus driver pleaded
guilty Thursday to battery on
a school board employee and
was sentenced to four months
in the Nassau County Jail.
Kylinda Monique Sharper,
26, of O'Neil was released from
jail following her plea on
Thursday, where she has been
held since her arrest last
month, and ordered to return
to jail this week.
Following her jail sentence,
Sharper was sentenced to
eight months of probation and
ordered to have no contact
with her victim, 41-year-old
bus driver Diane Hall.
Sharper will not be prose-
cuted on a charge of trespass

Police say Sharper con-
fronted Hall on the bus and

Woman dies in wreck


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A Hilliard woman died
Saturday after the vehicle she
was driving was struck by a
semi tractor-trailer on SR 15
about 2 a.m.
Pamela R Myers, 38, was
pronounced dead at the scene
of the accident, which hap-
pened near the intersection of
SR 15 and Jackson Trail.
Neither the passenger nor
the driver of the truck was
injured. Myers was driving a
four-door, 1998 Saturn.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Myers was
attempting to turn left onto
Jackson Trail from the center
median of SR 15 as the truck,
driven by Leonard Sibley, 56, of
Norman Park, Ga., was travel-
ing south on SR 15. The truck
struck the Saturn and pushed


the vehicle south on SR 15.
Sibley reportedly veered to
the right and onto the west
shoulder of the road, where
the front of the truck struck
trees.
Myers was not wearing a
seatbelt; investigators are
awaiting the results of blood
tests to determine whether she
was under the influence of alco-
hol.
Sibley is not believed to
have been under the influence
of alcohol, according to the
accident report.
Sibley's passenger, Andrew
Harrell, 53, of Tifton, Ga., was
also uninjured. Both men were
wearing seatbelts.
Charges are pending the
outcome of the investigation,
according to the report.
Myers was alone in her
vehicle.

Sex assault
A Fernandina Beach man
reported he was the victim of a
sexual assault last week while
walking west through the inter-
section of Will Hardee and
Inverness roads.
The 20-year-old man said he
was walking about 4 a.m. on
Oct. 21 when a dark Mercedes
Benz with a Georgia tag drove
up behind him and struck him
on his left thigh, causing him
to fall and hit the rear of his
head on the concrete.
The man told police two men
got out of the car and the driver
pulled him up off the ground
and "placed him on his knees."
The victim said the passen-
ger then pulled his pants down
and attempted to force the vic-
tim to give him oral sex; the vic-
tim told police he bit the man
"until he could taste blood" and
both men fled the scene going
west in the vehicle.
Police are investigating the
report; no arrests have been
made. The victim said the driv-
er was about six feet tall and
wearing a white shirt with
stripes and a pair of jeans. He
said the other man was approx-
imately six feet, six inches tall
and was wearing a black shirt
and a pair of dress pants and a
gold watch.
Gunpoint robbery
A 31-year-old man reported-
ly was robbed at gunpoint out-
side his home in the 1000 block
of South 10th Street Sunday
night; two suspects took his cell
phone and change before flee-
ing.
The man said his girlfriend
dropped him off in front of his
houie about 10:45 p.m. He said
he noticed the silhouettes of two
men on the north side of his
home. He tried to "flank the sub-
ject by running to the south side
of his home," but he was
approached by one of the men
who was holding a handgun.


The victim said the man fired
one bullet into the ground while
pushing him back with his other
hand. The suspect allegedly told
the victim to give him his
money. The victim fell to the
ground in front of his driveway
and, according to police, the sus-
pect put the gun to the man's
head and held him to' the
ground while the other suspect
kicked and punched him. The
victim said the men went
through his pockets, taking a
cell phone worth about $500
and about $3 in pocket change.
The victim had several abra-
sions on the back of his head,
according to police.
The man described one sus-
pect as a "light-skinned" male
wearing a black hoodie and the
other man as a "dark-skinned"
male wearing a black hoodie.
The case is under investiga-
tion.
Hotel robbery
Fernandina Beach Police are
investigating a robbery involv-
ing a firearm at the Hampton
Inn & Suites on South Second
Street. No one was injured, but
$518 was stolen from the front
desk, according to a report
The incident happened
about 9:45 pm. on Oct 24 when,
according to the victim, a front-
desk employee of the hotel, a
man went inside a vending room
located to the east side of the
front desk.
According to the report, the
vending room has a small win-
dow connected to the front desk
through which money can be
exchanged. The victim said the
man asked her how much it
would cost to purchase a soda;
when she turned to talk to him,
he reportedly tapped the bar-
rel of a black gun on the count-
er and told the woman to "give
me the money." She opened the
register and gave the man
approximately $518, and he left
through the front door of the
hotel.
The woman described the
man as blue-eyed, about five
feet, six inches tall and 160
pounds. She said he was wear-
ing a blue polo shirt with thin,
white, horizontal stripes, blue
jeans and.white shoes. The vic-
tim told police the suspect
appeared to be homeless.
The case is under investiga-
tion; no arrests have been made.
Breakfast theft
A 16-year-old Fernandina
Beach boy was arrested last
week after he allegedly ate
breakfast at the Hampton Inn
& Suites on South Second
Street, where he was not a
guest, then refused to pay for

According to witnesses,
when a hotel employee asked
the boy to pay for his breakfast,
the boy threw a one-dollar bill at
him, threatened to kick him,
then got into his vehicle parked
outside to leave.
The hotel employee report-
edly continued trying to stop
the boy, but the suspect
"attempted to run over (the vic-
tim) as he fled the scene."

Elderly defendant on


conditional release


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

An 85-year-old Fernandina
Beach man who police believe
ran a family drug ring supplying
much of the cocaine used in and
around Fernandina Beach will
not stand trial any time soon.
Joseph "Duck" Simmons
was declared incompetent to
stand trial earlier this month
and has been placed on "condi-
tional release" and will be mon-
itored, said Assistant State
Attorney Robert Lippelman.
Lippelman said Simmons
must be re-evaluated for com-
petency within six months,
according to state law.
"Apparently he's got some
mental healthissues and could-:
n't 'fdlYWffefiW1iy, asisti;''
defense attorney with the prepa-
ration of his defense," he said,
adding that it was found
Simmons could not "adequately
appreciate" his role in the crim-
inal justice system.
Lippelman said the decision
to declare Simmons incompe-
tent was not based on his
advanced age.
Simmons was arrested ear-
lier this year along with several
other- people as part of
"Operation Fishnet," a nine-
month undercover narcotics
investigation conducted by the
Fernandina. Beach Police
Department and the U.S. Drug
Enforcement Agency.
"It's basically a cqurt-super-
vised lifestyle," Lippelman said
of Simmons' conditional release
status. "Everything he does is ,
monitored, he has to get mental
health treatment, it's kind of like
probation ... essentially it's a
holding part and ... at some
point when he does become
competent, at that time his pros-
ecution will proceed."
Simmons' sons, Christopher
T. Brown, 36, and Benjamin
"Boy Baby" Simmons, 38, were
also arrested in connection with
the case; they have both been
federally indicted, according to
Fernandina Beach Police Chief
Jim Hurley.
iUppelman said he does not
know if Simmons will live at his
South 10th Street residence dur-
ing his conditional release.




Cockroach

invasion?
University ofFlorida

GAINESVILLE As if
Floridians aren't bugged enough
by roaches, a growing interest
among reptile enthusiasts to
farm the insects as lizard food'
could result in several new cock-
roach varieties invading the
state, University of Florida ento-
mologists warn.
Their main worry is the
Turkestan cockroach, which has
made itself at home in the south-
west United States after being
brought in by military personnel
and equipment returning from
the Middle East.
Other types of roach they say
Floridians could spon be in dan-
ger of stepping on include the
Madagascar hissing roach, the
lobster roach and the orange
spotted roach, none of which are
known to be in the state.


Simmons
and his sons
were three of
at least 19
people arrest-
ed in connec-
tion with
Operation
Simmons Fishnet.
Police believe
Simmons,
along with his sons, was run-
ning a drug operation that traf-
ficked as much as six to 10
ounces of cocaine a week, with
a street value of anywhere from
$6,000 to $18,000. The trio was
"nearly monopolizing our small
illegal drug market," Hurley
said at the time of the bust in
May.

FBMS Lady Pirates clinch conference championship

BETH JONES
News-Leader


Thursday's win was just icing on
the cake for the Fernandina Beach
Middle School girls volleyball team.
The Lady Pirates went undefeated
with an 8-0 record after beating Lake
City 25-15, 25-16 to clinch the Florida
Crown Conference title, a first for
FBMS since 1999.
"This is the first year we've won
conference since its expansion," said
Carolyn Sauls, FBMS coach.
The conference expanded four
years ago to include 15 schools cov-
ering six counties in Northeast
Florida.
"For our small school to compete
and win over some of these bigger
schools speaks volumes of their tal-
ent," Sauls said.
FBMS also captured back-to-back
county titles.
"I don't think I could have been
blessed with a better group of girls,
who were as self-driven and motivat-
ed as the squad I've got now," Sauls
said. "They practiced hard, played
hard and remained focused during
our entire season.
"And as a result, these girls pulled
off an 8-0 undefeated season, earned
county champion and now are
crowned winners of the Florida Crown
Conference. What more could a coach
ask for?"
In game one Thursday, Darby Lane
had a trio of aces for FBMS; Shelby
Booker had a service point, an ace,
and a kill; Kathryn Jackson recorded
an ace; Emily VanPuymbrouck had
three points and.a kill; Madison Mixon
had two aces; Presley Mashburn had
one kill: and Kavia Hutchinson record-
ed a service point. .
In the second game,. Lane had a
pair of points and three aces; Booker
had a point and two aces; Jessica Lee
had an ace; Jackson had four points .
and two aces; and Mixon had two
points and two aces.

Yulee falls to Bradford, hosts Keystone Friday


BETH JONES
News-Leader


The Yulee Hornets dropped to 3-4 (2-3
in the district) Friday with a 33-14 loss at
Bradford County.
This was the first time all year where I
felt that we just did not come to play," said
Bobby Ramsay, YHS head football coach.
"We did not match Bradford County's inten-
sity. I need to do a better job of preparing
the kids to play. We tackled poorly and did
not catch the ball. I can remember hearing
my college head coach saying those were
the two things that indicated if you were
ready to play.
'Turnovers also hurt; we had four. On
the positive end, we did throw for 191 yards
and our quarterback had a career high
and school record. But we probably left
100 yards out there. We did a very good job
in the kicking game, blocking a punt and

putting together some nice returns."
Sophomore Conner Petty threw for 191
yards and a pair of touchdowns for the
Hornets. Derrick Peterson, also a sopho-
more, reeled in both TDs and finished the
night with 100 yards. Senior Kentral

junior Jonathan Knauss rushed for 50

Junior Mychal Culpepper led the
, defense with 11 tackles. Senior Aaron

Senior Terrill McDonald had six tackles
and forced a fumble. Senior Matt Malone
blocked a punt Sophomore Jake Green
. 'had five tackles, two for a loss. Justin Miller,
a junior, recorded seven tackles. Fellow
junior Seth Bodine had four tackles, two for
losses..
The Hornets host Keystone Heights at
7:30 p.m. Friday.
"This week is yet another tough oppo-
nent," Ramsay said. "Keystone Heights is
very physical and Coach Dickerson and
staff are top-notch. We are trying to beat
them for the first time in school history and
get back to .500. We also are wearing new
home jerseys-that the kids picked out"


Bolles Bulldogs too much for the Pirates


BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Pirates saw a glimmer
of hope of upsetting district
bully Bolles in the first seconds
of the game Friday. Fernandina
Beach High School junior Tai
Alford returned the opening
kickoff more than 90 yards and
Max Shaw kicked the PAT to
put Fernandina Beach up 7-0.
But the celebration was
short-lived as Bolles scored 41
unanswered points in the first
half to take a 41-7 lead. The
Bulldogs tacked on another TD
in the second half before the


Pirates could muster an answer,
another touchdown run by
Alford. Bolles wasn't finished
and scored once more for a 55-
13 victory over the host Pirates.
Bolles scored its first two
touchdowns after recovering
its own fumbles. Its fourth
came off a blocked Pirate punt
and the Bulldogs' sixth and final
touchdown of the first half
came off an interception.
The Pirates (5-3, 4-2 in the
district) face another district
foe Thursday. They travel to
Ribault for a 7 p.m. kickoff. The
Pirates cap the season Nov. 7 at
home with Yulee.

Forget2007 UT UGA have enough to worry about Saturday


Many University of
/ Florida football fans will
argue that a completely
.. healthy TimTebow
would have made the difference
against Georgia in 2007. Others will
say that the Bulldogs' celebration
after their first score in last year's
game is all the motivation the Gators
need to avenge the 42-30 loss.
In the words of Clark W.
Griswold from National Lampoon's
"Christmas Vacation," "Do you really
think it matters, Eddie?"
The bottom line is the Bulldogs.
took the Gators behind the wood-
shed last year and gave them a fair
and square beating. When the ball
leaves the tee about 3:38 p.m.
Saturday, neither Tebow's bum
shoulder nor thugs storming the
north end zone in 2007 will have an
impact on the 2008 version of the
World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail


Party. It's what hap-
pens for the three-
plus hours this
Nov. 1, not all the
garbage that has
been spewed since
last Oct. 27, that
will decide the out-
come.
All the above
said, both Florida
SPORTS and Georgia are on
a roll offensively,
TAL with the Gators
posting 63 points
JOHN L. against a Kentucky
CRAWFORD team that had been
allowing just over
11 a game and
Georgia putting up 52 on LSU in
Baton Rouge last weekend.
Florida hasn't faced a passing
attack anywhere close to the one it
will see Saturday. Georgia junior QB


Matthew Stafford seems to be play-
ing at his peak and freshman WR .
A.J. Green is the Bulldogs' best true
pass catcher since Terrance
Edwards last carved up secondaries
in 2002. Throw in maybe the most
talented running back in the SEC,
sophomore Knowshon Moreno, and
the Gators are up against it.
On the flip side, Georgia hasn't
faced an offense so blessed with
speed from top to bottom as the one
Florida will show this weekend.
Head coach Urban Meyer and offen-
sive coordinator Dan Mullen have
decided to start using all the
weapons they have at their disposal.
Ever since a sluggish first half
against Arkansas three games ago,
the Gators' offensive numbers have
been eye-popping. Junior Percy
Harvin can line up anywhere in any
given formation, while freshmen Jeff
Demps and Chris Rainey have


proven they can run between the
tackles. Throw in the speedy senior
WR Louis Murphy on the edge and
the returning Heis'man Trophy win-
ner in Tebow and the Gators are a
hard bunch to defend.
All things being equal on offense,
which seemingly they are,
Saturday's game will likely come
down to defense and special teams.
Which team can make the key
defensive stand in what should be a
high-scoring affair or who can
muster that backbreaking blocked
punt or kickoff return for a touch-
down?
Forget about 2007. Both teams,
and especially the defenses, have
enough to worry about in 2008 ...
While the winner of Saturday's
Florida-Georgia tilt will be favored to
play for the SEC championship in
December, neither the Gators nor
Bulldogs are an odds-on favorite to


play for the national title next
January, thanks to Penn State's 13-6
win over Ohio State Saturday.
The Nittany Lions' victory makes
them heavy favorites to go undefeat-
ed, with lowly Iowa, Michigan State
and Indiana remaining on the sched-
ule. Similarly, if Texas gets by Texas
Tech Saturday, the Longhorns
should have no problem staying
unbeaten with Baylor, Kansas and
Texas A&M left to play. If Missouri
can hold on to win the Big 12 South
and somehow upset either Texas or
Texas Tech in the Big 12 champi-
onship game, there might be a glim-
mer of hope for the Gators or
Bulldogs, providing the winner of
Saturday's game wins out. Talk
about needing a perfect storm.

WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 29.2008 SPORTS News-Leader


Croake, Peterson



share blitz honors


Last week turned out to
have an abbreviated blitz as
the cry of "rain, rain, go
away" was fruitless on Friday
and the blitz was washed out.
On Wednesday, 65 players
took part. Individual honors
at plus 9 were shared by Jack
Croake (78) and Heyde
Peterson (77). Neither of
them made it onto a winning
team. There was a three-way
for third at plus 6 between
Rudy Campanale (95), John
Bray (81) and Allen Elefterion
(80).
An all-plus team of Dick
Peterson (100, plus 4), Jim
McFarland (96, plus 3),
Dennis Sassenger (84, plus 2)
and Mickey Rushton (82, plus
1) took first place at plus 10.
There was a tie for second
and third places at plus 8
between the teams of Bray
(plus 6), Sammy Alvarez (75,
plus 3), Marty House (86,
even), Terry Lacoss (86,
minus 1) and Charles
Helenbrook (88, plus 5),
Larry Hutchison (85, plus 3),
Tommy Purvis (87, plus 1),
Jim Roberts (80, minus 1).
Fourth place at plus 6
went to Mike Joyce (two-
under-par 71, plus 4), Dennis
Moorehead (80, plus 3),
Michael Kaufman (89, even)
and Bob Craven (88, minus
1).
Blitz players are reminded
that with this week being the
Georgia-Florida football
game, there will be no blitz on
Friday to accommodate what
is hoped to be a good turnout
for the city course. The blitz
will be played today and on
Thursday at the same times.


Breakfastmixer
With the Friday blitz being
rained out, the Saturday
Morning Breakfast Mixer had
a good turnout of 30 players.
Dennis Moorehead had a
good round of 77 (net 64) to
capture honors. Dave
Bandelin finished alone in
second place with an 85 (net
68). Doug Wolfe (86) and
Tony Lopez (80) shared third
and fourth at net 71.
There was a logjam at net
72 for fifth place between
Simon Carter (78), Claude
Hartley (91), Pat Whelan
(99), Tom Harmon (83) and
Ed Lewis (89).
A special thank-you to the
golfer who found and turned
in a billfold belonging to Al
Jump.
All players should check
with the pro shop concerning
upcoming events.

I One of the big faults that the ama-
teur golfer finds is when they hit a
shot into' trouble. A professional
can find a way to escape disaster,
but the general rule for an amateur
is that trouble leads to more trou-
ble. The one shot that causes the
amateur the most trouble is when a tee shot goes
into the woods. We're so mad when our shot is
out of the fairway and in a tree that it usually
leads to a second erratic shot. Consequently,
most people race up to find the shot, just grab a
club and hack away. Instead, a more sensible
plan is the best course of action. Picking the right
club with the proper loft is essential. Too much loft
could lead to your shot going into the overhang-
ing leaves. Not enough loft will result in the ball
getting hung up in the woods again.

Seve Ballesteros is said to be in stable condition following last Friday's operation at La Paz
Hospital in Madrid. The Spanish golf legend underwent a third procedure on his brain, with ____"
doctors working to reduce swelling and remove the remnants of a cancerous brain tumor. A '\
statement from the hospital revealed that the operation, which lasted more than six hours, was
regarded as a success. "The targets planned have been achieved and we have eliminated the
edema and the remnants of the tumor," doctors said. Meanwhile, a hospital spokesperson said that
Ballesteros was "in a serious but stable condition at the intensive care unit, where he will remain for the next few
days." Many of the world's top golfers have offered messages of support to the 51-year-old since he collapsed at
Madrid Airport on October 6th. Ballesteros first underwent surgery to remove the cancerous brain tumor on
October 14th, with a second operation required two days later to ease swelling around his brain.

climbed up into a tree stand with her

T en-year old Logan Stevenson
father's hunting friend, Timmy
Stephens, on Oct. 16. Stevenson's
father, Bo, was recently killed in a motorcycle
accident. He was an avid outdoorsman, who
enjoyed both hunting and fishing with his
wife, Dawn, and two daughters, Stevenson and
Lindsey Sills.
Bo Stevenson was also a
member of the Nassau
Hunting Club, where he hunt-
ed with his girls and old-time
hunting companions Ronnie
Sites and Timmy Stephens.
One of Bo Stevenson's best
hunts included a very rare
"Piebald" deer that he took
OUTDOORS with a bow and arrow. The
rare deer is now mounted and
on display at Stevenson's
Terry Lacoss Collision Center in Yulee.
After settling down in their
hunting stand, Logan Stevenson and Stephens
waited quietly for nearby wild hogs to show up
under their stand and within shooting range.
They didn't have to wait too long before a nice
60-pound hog walked cautiously into shooting
range. Logan Stevenson took dead aim, just as
her father had taught her, and made a clean
kill.
However, this hunting story doesn't stop
here. The following day, 15-year-old Lindsey
Sills hunted with Ronnie Sites, another close
hunting friend of Bo Stevenson.
"Ronnie had left Lindsey in a tree stand
with her bow and left to hunt from another
stand," Dawn Stevenson said. "They both had
cell phones and would communicate by phone
if needed.
"It was closing in on darkness when
Lindsay called Ronnie and said she was com-
ing down from her tree stand and calling it a
day. However, at the very same moment, a
large buck walked right up to Lindsay's tree
stand, prompting Lindsey to abruptly hang up
her cell phone."
Meanwhile Sites was worried that some-
thing had gone wrong, resulting in Sills
abruptly ending their telephone conversation.
Sites hurried for the tree stand where he had
left Sills earlier that day.
Not realizing the worry she had caused
Sites when she had hung up her cell phone,
the only matter of importance at that exact
moment was taking dead aim at that big buck.
"I never heard that buck walk up to my tree
stand," Sills said. "In fact, it came as a big sur-
prise while talking with Ronnie. The only thing
I could do was quietly hang up my cell phone.
I guess by now Roniie was thinking I had fall-

en from my tree stand or something bad had
happened. All these thoughts were running
through my mind as I pulled back the bow-
string and took dead aim at that big buck. I
was totally scared and shut my eyes while
releasing the arrow."
Fortunately, Sills' arrow had found its mark
and her big deer fell almost in its tracks and,
at the same time, Stephens arrived to make
sure she was not in harm's way.
'Timmy was so proud of me," Sills said. "It
couldn't have happened at a better time. We
later weighed my big buck that bottomed out
the scales at 115 pounds."
I have to think that somehow Sills and
Stevenson's father did play a big role in their
recent hunting successes.
"I'm so thankful that Timmy and Ronnie
are willing to take up time with my girls now
that their dad is gone," Dawn Stevenson said.
General hunting season in Nassau County
opens Nov. 8 and closes Jan. 4. For informa-
tion on Florida hunting regulations, visit
www.myfwc.com. Georgia's general hunting
season in the Southern Region opened Oct. 18
and ends Jan. 1. For information on Georgia's
hunting regulations, visit www.georgiaout
doors.com.
"I plan on hunting on some private hunt
club property in Georgia this week," Amelia
Island's, Scott Hood said. 'This week the
weather is scheduled to be pretty cold and
windy. This should afford for excellent hunt-
ing conditions where the deer are moving in
the woods."

years old a great size but I am
definitely a one-person dog. I
can be your best companion,
friend and watchdog but I will
want you all to myself. If you
live alone and are looking for
a great sized girl who will be
totally devoted to you, then
you will definitely want to
make me yours. Do you have
room in your house for a cute
roommate? If so, I'm the
roomy for you!
Well, as you can see I am
cute! My name is Chow and I
am an 8-week-old kitty look-
ing for a home. I am a lovable
ball of energy, though I can
be laid back when I want to
be. I love, love, love toys and
could play all day until it's
time to nap and recharge. I
will adore you if you just pet
me, play with me, love on me
and make me yours!.
