'Tis the season


- for armed robberies?


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Police have
issued a warning to residents and vis-
itors to be alert this holiday season;
three armed robbery attempts have
been reported within the city limits so
far this month.
Meanwhile, Nassau County detec-
tives are investigating an armed rob-
bery last week in Yulee.
In a statement issued Monday,
Fernandina Beach Police Chief James


Hurley listed two robberies from last
week well as a N.... 14 robbery of an
Atlantic Avenue convenience store.
On Saturday about 7 p.m., a man
attempted to take the purse from an
elderly woman who was silting in a car
in the parking lot of the Winn-Dixie
on South Eighth Street as she waited
for her husband to return from the
store. The suspect reportedly opened
the.passenger door to her car, leaned
inside and demanded that she.give him
her purse "or he would shoot her, at
which time he brandished a semi-auto-


matic handgun."
The 67-year-old
Alpha, Mich.,
woman saw her hus-
band come out of the
store and the suspect
noticed she was
looking at someone
and asked if that was
Hurley her husband. The
man then confronted
her 83-year-old hus-
band when he got to the car. The.two
men struggled for control of the gun


and the woman got out of the car and
gave her purse to the suspect, who
then ran to a parked car and drove
south on T.J. Courson Boulevard. A
witness who was in the parking lot also
saw the robbery.
The suspect is described as a white,
unshaven male approximately six feet
tall.
In his statement, Hurley also said a
woman was confronted behind a down-
town Fernandina Beach business about
midnight on Thursday by a.man wear-
ing a mask and holding a gun. The


man reportedly demanded money from
the woman but she didn't have any and
escaped unharmed and with nothing
stolen.
"Believing that some witnesses may
exist, the Fernandina Beach Police
Department is asking for anyone who
observed the incident (at Winn-Dixie)
or may have information pertinent to
the investigation to call immediately,"
Hurley said. "Although it has not been
determined that all three of theseinci-

Disagreement continued Monday
between the Nassau County Commis-
sion and the county clerk over the pro-
posed hiring of a federal lobbyist In a
letter to the board, Clerk of Court John
Crawford expressed doubt about
whether his office could legally author-
ize payment to the law firm of Jacobs,
Scholz & Associates because the board
proposed hiring the firm without put-
ting the job out for a competitive bid.
The matter was scheduled to come
before the commission Monday, but
Commissioner Danny Leeper asked
that it be'postponed until the board's
Dec. 10 meeting.
Crawford had previously raised the
concern in a Nov. 17 letter, but County
Attorney David Hallman said the coun-
ty's rules on competitive bidding do
not apply to legal services. Although
Hallman said lobbying is considered a
legal service, Crawford insisted it is
not.

Monday's letter. "... In addition, I havE
a constitutional and statutory duty to
conduct a 'pre-audit review' of a pro-
posed expenditure 'in order to be sure
that the funds will not be used for an
unlawful purpose,"' he added, citing a
legal precedent.
"I have no objection in principle to
the board's decision regarding their
desire for lobbying services," Crawford
wrote. "However, I must insist that the
disbursement of funds comply with the

New shakeup at animal control


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
Six months after taking over the
county's beleaguered animal control
facility, hiring a new director and
boosting staff, Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves is considering a shakeup.
'"We were staying in one position
and not moving forward ... daily needs
were being met but nothing was mov-
ing forward in terms of issues,"
Seagraves said of his recent decision
to bring in Lynda Mixson to review
the operation and develop recom-
mendations.
They will meet this week to study


her suggestions as well as status
reports Mixson requested from each
department: "There are accusations
to follow up on management tech-
niques," the sheriff said, but other-
wise declined to detail specific issues
until after the meeting.
Mixson is a former Nassau
Humane Society director who now
heads the rescue group RAIN and
whose husband Gil Mixson is one of
the sheriff's animal control officers.
She was aided by Mimi Vitale, a local
animal advocate,
RAIN had itself submitted a bid
to run the shelter when the county
sought to outsource the operation


last year, but then withdrew that in
support of Seagraves' nearly $1 mil-
lion proposal.
Seagraves also is reviewing sev-
eral letters from employees outlining
their concerns, and noted the con-
sultancy did not go as smoothly as
hoped. "They clashed," he said of
staff and Mixson, and she "finally
walked away."

Director Chris Barnes, hired in April
from the Alachua County shelter in
Gainesville, declined to comment on
the situation or his management of

Eighth Street project


'close to completion


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
According to Mike Goldman of
the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation, the Eighth Street resurfacing
project is 60 days ahead of schedule
and is finally winding down to its con-
clusion.
He estimated that, weather per-
mitting, the final pavement layer
would be put down within the week.
Goldman said that because most
of the work is done at night, it may
appear that little is being done on the
roadway. He also explained that a
two-inch drop between lanes is the
result of the final paving process,
which must be done in sections to


allow for traffic.
Those unexpected drops, he said,
will be fixed with the final paving.
After that, he said, the rest of the
work is "incidental," such as road
striping on the Shave Bridge.
"For all practical purposes we'll
be out of there by December," said
Goldman. "We've been happy with
the progress. I think by and large it's
gone pretty well."
According to an e-mail from City
Manager Michael Czymbor, the city's
only job left for the project is to adjust
the tops of the manholes so they are
flush with the new street surface,
once the resurfacing is completed.

But if Hallman's interpre-
tation is correct, a no-bid con-
tract with Jacobs, Scholz &
Associates is a procurement
of legal service and would
not constitute an illegal war-
rant. "At the end of the day, the
real issue is whether the board
is violating its own purchasing
policy in the way it's going for-
ward and it's not," Hallman
said Tuesday.

costly."
Sedgwick recommended
the implementation of a credit
system in which property own-
ers who had worked to miti-
gate drainage issues on their
land would not have to pay as
much as those who had not.
"The key to success is a storm
water financing system that can
be easily understood and prac-
tically implemented," he said.
In his presentation,
Sedgwick cited the amount of
$36 as an average fee. The fee
would be paid once a year and
by law could be used only for
storm water mitigation.
Commissioner Mike Boyle
said the fee plan was worth fur-
ther exploration. "Most resi-
dents don't like any tax that's
new ... but if we show the citi-
zens what it's for, I think it'll
be easier to sell it," he said.
"People don't want to have that
nagging feeling, 'Well, I paid it
for storm water, but where is it
really going?"'
"The only negative I've
heard is that now we're taxing
rain," Commission Chair Barry
Holloway said. However, Hollo-
way agreed that the idea mer-
ited consideration.

rendering his
own opinion on
the statutes.
My first alle-
giance is obvi-
ously to the
people of this
county, but nmy
allegiance is
also to Mr. lHall-


man's legal advice. I'm going to
err on the side of caution and
follow the county attorney's
advice to us. That's the way I
feel about it. It's not a reflection
on John in any way in my mind,
but he's not an attorney.
"I think sometimes Mr.
Crawford sometimes renders
opinions that he doesn't follow
completely through on his
research," Holloway added. "If


he's using another attorney to
render opinions for him, then
he needs to state that."
"Whatever the board
decides to do if they decide to
go through with this based on
my opinion, and it turns out
that Mr. Crawford won't sign
checks, there's a way of resolv-
ing that at the judicial level,
and I'm confident that the
board would prevail in that,"
Hallman said. "I always give
advice based on my belief
that my client could sustain
their position in front of a
judge. My favorite law profes-
sor said the job of a lawyer is
first to predict outcomes for
his client, and I believe the
board would prevail in front of
a judge."

emergencies out of the gener-
al fund which means less
money for previously budgeted
projects. "That's what we're try-
ing to get past dipping into
the general fund for every
emergency that comes along,"
Boyle said Thursday.
However, in an economy
already reeling from the nation-
wide financial collapse, Boyle
acknowledged that a new tax
could be controversial. "We
would have a public hearing to
allow the people to participate,"
he said. "... I think that the
value would probably be good
for the amount of money
placed into it. But as I say, there
would be public hearings and if
the people didn't want it, we
would certainly listen to them."
Boyle also stressed that
right now the county is merely
considering a fee. 'This was
our very first look at it. There
will be more to come," he said.

especially if the cost remains
low and the fee structure is
adaptable to individual situa-

"Sometimes people see the
light and realize that $36 a year,
using the example (Sedgwick)
gave, is probably a pretty good
investment to keep their homes

The facility also collected $4,350
in fines and citations from April
through Sept. 30, a vast impro-

But much remains to be

For example, a goal to over-

expanding the outdoor kennel

"It's a challenging job and

The Nassau office of First Coast Oncology has added a PET/CT Simulator. According
to Dr. Scot Ackerman, this new piece of equipment will enhance patient treatment by
assisting in radiation planning, tracking patient progress as well as monitoring the pos-
sible spread of cancer to other areas of the body. When used together, Positron
Emission Testing (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT) provide the highest level of
detail highlighting the size, shape and exact location of a tumor. This information is
then used to create the most effective treatment plan possible allowing physicians to
treat the exact area where the cancer exists.

Retailers offer discounts,


specials to lure customers
Florda Slate I Inivrsity v


TAI.AHASSEE cookingg
ahead to the Christmas shop-
ping season, retailers are stuck
between a rock and a hard
place. So says marketing Pro-
fessor Michael Hartline of
Florida State University, who
forecasts weaker than normal
holiday sales for retailers.
"Due to the worldwide eco-
nomic crisis, retail sales have
already dipped to levels match-
ing those in the aftermath of
the terrorist attacks of Sept.
11, 2001," said Hartline, who
chairs the Department of
Marketing in Floridh State's
College of Business. "This
time, though, declining con-
sumer confidence and the
growing number of unem-
ployed Americans will continue
the slide in retail sales. Given
the importance of consumer
spending to the health of the
overall U.S. economy, these
events couldn't come at a
worse time for retailers."
Most retailers depend on
sales during the holiday sea-
son to offset any losses earlier
in the yeaw; Hartline said. Black
Friday the day after
Thanksgiving is so named
because it marks the first time
that most retailers have been
"in the black," or operating at a
profit, all year. If retailers fail to
turn a profit now, they could
end up "in the red," or operat-
ing at a loss, for the entire year.


A slow retail season can mean
good news for holiday shoppers.


"Retailers are stuck right
now because they need to offer
discounts and special deals to
get customers into the stores
or online," Hartline said.
"However, if those discounts
or deals are too good, retailers
run the risk of not making
enough profit. It's a real Catch-
22, and a reason that the
upcoming Black Friday sales
will not be that spectacular.
"Heavy discounting began
this year well before Black
Friday," Hartline said. "Certain
types of merchandise such
as home entertainment typi-
cally do well in an economic
downturn as consumers look to
expand the creature comforts
of home. For example, this
looks as though it will be a ban-
ner year for HDTVs, movies
and gaining consoles. In addi-
tion, look for discounts from
companies that seldom offer
them. Apple, for one, is expect-
ed to have its first-ever online
Black Friday sale."
As has been the case in the
past, consumers will shift much
of their shopping to discount
chains such as Wal-Mart,
Target and Costco, indicating
that these stores are likely to
be the only retailers to come


out on top this holiday season.
High-end department stores
and specialty shops will suffer
the most.
"The biggest winner this
holiday season may be the gift
card," Hartline said. "The
recent move by the Federal
Insurance Deposit Corp. to
insure gift cards makes them a
safe bet for wary consumers."
While a slow retail season
can mean good news for holi-
day shoppers, Hartline cau-
tions that it's bad news for the
economy as a whole. Retail
losses have a direct effect oil
store employees and share-
holders, and lower stock prices
will further erode consumer
and business confidence.
"Circuit City may not be the
only retailer filing for bank-
ruptcy after the holidays are
over," he said.
The outlook for the New
Year doesn't look good either,
Hartline said, explaining that if
consumers are reluctant to
spend during the holidays,
they're not likely to spend later.
"Until the economy
improves, consumers are going
to buy far fewer discretionary
items such as cars, appliances
and vacations," he said.

State revenues short billions


TAI.I.IAl IASSIK-I l.egislalorslearned Friday
that even before they start putting together
another reduced budget for fiscal year 2009-10,
they are going to have to do more cutting on the
current one.
The state's Consensus Estimating Conference
has reduced state revenue estimates for fiscal
2008-9 by 6 percent, or $1.4 billion; the 2009-10
estimate was cut by $2.2 billion.
The result is a $2.14 billion general revenue
shortfall in the current budget year (fiscal 2008-
9, which began July 1) that will have to be
addressed.
The last estimates, made in August 2008, pro-
jected a $1.5 billion shortfall.
"Now is a time for great statesmanship," said
Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of
Florida TaxWatch, the nonpartisan, non-
profit research institute and government watch-
dog in Tallahassee. "This time of great fiscal
challenge also holds great opportunity for the
government and citizens of Florida. We must
not try to tax our way out of this economic down-
turn, which would only make matters worse.
Instead, we must work aggressively to help the
economy, eliminate duplicative government func-
tions, streamline government activities to
improve efficiency, and examine every area of
state spending to determine what is essential
and what is not."
The estimators cited three main causes of


the further deterioration of state revenues. The
credit crunch will continue to hurt housing, con-
sumer spending and business investment.
The recession is now global, which will
hurt tourism and exports. And increased job
losses, home value depreciation and asset
value declines will reduce discretionary spend-
ing.
Nearly every revenue source was reduced,
with the largest reduction coming in sales taxes
($693 million), corporate income taxes ($212
million), earnings on investments ($135 million),
documentary stamp taxes ($80 million) and intan-
gibles taxes ($79 million).
This continues an unprecedented series of
reduced revenue estimates and resulting
budget cuts. Fiscal 2008-9 is the third year in a
row that the state has less general revenue to
spend in the current year than it did the previous
year. Prior to this period, that had never hap-
pened before.
The revenue forecasted in 2008-9 is now $5 bil-
lion less than the amount of general revenue
collected in 2005-6, the year before the declines
began.
The state will first need to balance the current
budget, which is already $6 billion less than
the budget for 2007-8 (both general revenue
and trust funds). Gov. Charlie Crist has already
asked agencies to hold back 4 percent of their
budgets.

OPINION




VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Contrary
1 have become very con-
cerned over City Commissioner
Eric Childers' recent votes and
comments that are contrary to
the environmental interests of
the community. Mr. Childers
has aligned himself against
environmental interests and
with our enemies while attack-
ing the one city commissioner
who has most often voted and
acted to support the environ-
ment.
Mr. Childers' recent attack
on Commissioner Ron Sapp is
of special concern as I feel that
Mr. Sapp's actions and com-
ments have been very appro-
priate, even necessary. Mr.
Childers' vote to support the
large-scale Crane Island devel-
opment was disheartening and
his support of Arthur Jacobs to
be a lobbyist for the city aligns
him with one of the environ-
ment's most dedicated enemies.
I agree strongly with
Commissioner Sapp and
many others -- that the selec-
tion of Arthur Jacobs is very,
very wrong for many reasons.
I also agree with Commissioner
Sapp that the city manager


TAKE STOCK IN CHILDREN"
A mentoring and scholarship program
for Nassau County students


should be replaced because he
has shown an indifference to
environmental issues., has been
ineffective in many areas and is
too confrontational.
I had hoped at the outset
that Mr. Childers would be a
friend to the environment. But
he has disillusioned me as he is
consistently siding with the
other camp.

I was dismayed to read the
letter ("Returning home, Nov.
21) in which she explained that
she was returning to her roots
in Amelia Island, and then went
on to take exception to the
extant conditions of a number
of what she describes as "social
justice" issues in our commu-
nity.
Regarding one of these
issues she says, "It is disap-
pointing and appalling to find
that Nassau County does not
have mental health services
available to the public." She
cited as her authority for ,this
statement that when she dialed
the telephone number of the


Nassau County Mental
Health services to find help for
a friend..." she discovered that
the number had been discon-
nected. With respect, I would
suggest that this is hardly an
objective or authoritative source
for her conclusion.
I would like to invite her
attention to the mental health,
and substance abuse treatment
services made available to the
citizens of Nassau County,
which are in large part sup-
ported by funding from the
Florida Department of Children
& Families, and by matching
funds provided by the Nassau
County Commission, which are
offered by Sutton Place
Behavioral Health, Inc. The
headquarters of this non-profit
agency are located at the june-
tion of SR 200 (A1A) and US 17
in Yulee.
All of the local telephone
directories have both white
page and yellow page listings
for our agency under the
"Mental Health Services."
Sutton Place may be reached
24/7 by calling (904) 225-8280.

Coalition for
Homeless
I want to respond to the let-
ter writer about one of her con-
cerns and disappointments
upon returning to Fernandina
Beach ("Returning home," Nov.
21).
First of all, Amelia Island
does have homeless persons
and families who need help and
support from the community.
Their problehns 'are being
addressed by members of the
Coalition for the Homeless of
Nassau County;, which was
formed two ydars ago. Our
membership consists of repre-
sentativom-from..some of the
agencies that. offor services to
homeless or near-homeless
people, as w.ell as interested
and concerned individual resi-
dents. One'agency so involved
is Suttoni Place .Behavioral
Health (based in Yulee), which
is the countyks public resource
for mental health services.
Among projects of this all-
volunteer organization is the
Interfaith Dinner Network
(IDN), which has been serving
an averagi.of-40 JI ry guests
each Tusey tid Thursday
evening --smt'e September.
These wonderful dinners are
the resulf~fao.int project of the


Coalition for the Homeless and
the, East Nassau Ministerial
Association. In the next year,
the dinners will be offered in
more evenings each week, and
we plan to extend the IDN con-
cept to Yulee and Callahan,
again with coordination among
the churches in those commu-
nities.
Another major goal of the
Coalition for the Homeless is
to address ways to prevent per-
sons and families from becom-
ing homeless. Activities include
advocacy for better access to
affordable housing and for
increased resources to assist
with rental and gas/electric pay-
ments. Advocacy for improved
public transportation will enable
job seekers to get to job sites for
interviews and jobholders to
get to and from work.
I would suggest to this letter
writer that if she is so inclined,
she can volunteer time and
efforts to support the efforts
of the Coalition for the Home-
less. The next meeting of the
membership of the Coalition
for the Homeless is the annual
meeting, to be held on
Thursday, Dec. 18 at 9:30 a.m.
at the Peck Center. I am the
contact person for this organi-'
zation, and my phone number is
491-1753.

every one of us has the presi-
dential power to pardon a
turkey on Thanksgiving.
In fact, here are some rea-
sons to skip the turkey this
Thanksgiving:
You are what you eat.
Who wants to be a "butterball"?
You won't have to call
Poultry Hotline to keep your
family alive.
You won't sweat the envi-
ronment and food resources

You won't spend a sleep-
less night wondering how the
turkey lived and died.
Your body will appreciate
a holiday from saturated fat,

My family's Thanksgiving

corn stuffing, stuffed squash,
chestnut soup, candied yams,
cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie
and carrot cake. An Internet
search on vegetarian Thanks-
giving got us lots of recipes and
other information.

Parentingat Peck'
On Monday, Nov. 17 I had
the pleasure of attending the
first session of a five-week par-
enting program at the Peck
Center on Elm Street in
Fernandina Beach. The pro-
gram is entitled "Guiding Good
Choices Strengthening
Families." The flyer on the pro-
gram came home with my ele-
mentary schooler. The program
is designed to teach parents,
guardians and grandparents
specific strategies for promot-
ing healthy behavior in chil-
dren.'
During the first session I
learned some of the myths and
Facts about marijuana, ciga-
rettes and alcohol Additionally,
I learned about commonly
abused drugs and typical time-
frames, settings and the ages in
which children are exposed to
drugs and drug activity. I found
the first session to be reward-
ing, timely and informative.
I encourage anyone inter-
rIst ed in this subjet to. join us

expected and required to respond to any and
all events and emergencies and therefore are
provided a vehicle or vehicle allowance per an
employment agreement. I chose a city-provid-
ed vehicle, which is a taxable benefit. The
Nassau County Coordinator receives a $500
per month car allowance, a fact the editor con-
veniently withheld from his editorial.
For the city of Fernandina Beach, like most
other municipalities, vehicles are purchased
under a state of Florida cooperative bid
process. All dealerships are invited to partici-
pate. The cooperative bid insures that munici-
palities receive the best pricing available. The
city of Fernandina Beach has continually
offered local dealerships) the opportunity to
compete with state contract pricing in an effort
to keep business local. In this case, the local
dealers could not match or come close to the
awarded bid price. City officials keenly under-
stand the need to spend tax dollars wisely and
to the lowest and best bidder.
It is my sincerest hope that I have shown
that everything isn't always as it appears in.the
pages of the paper. Finally, I would like to
acknowledge and thank city Fleet
Maintenance Superintendent Jeremiah
Glisson, who effectively manages our fleet and
has championed many of the best practices in
the department. He also contributed to this
article.

His healthy diet includes raw foods only


MATTHEW BEATEN
For the News-Leader
Feeding the public interest
in health and nutrition, Nassau
Health Foods hosted a lecture
by raw foods author and chef
Paul Nison earlier this month.
The accomplished author and
speaker has written six books,
and is currently on tour lectur-
ing and promoting his new
book, Paul Nison's Raw Food
Formula for Health.
Nison has maintained a raw
food diet consisting entirely of
fruits, vegetables, nuts and
seeds for the past 15 years.
However, before he found raw
food, his diet was not so strict-
ly regimented.
"On the average day, I would
eat over 8,000 calories, over 300
grams of animal protein and no
produce because I hated the
taste of fruits and vegetables,"
Nison said at the lecture.
This excessive caloric intake
and heavily carnivorous diet
soon brought on the medical
condition "ulcerative colitis."
Nison's doctors told him that
there was no cure for the con-
dition and that his best option
was to take medication to ease
his symptoms.
He disregarded the medical
advice and, instead, turned to
raw food. Nison attended the
Hippocrates Health Institute in
West Palm Beach, a raw food
health spa, and cured his con-
dition by drastically changing
his diet, he said.
"Raw-vegan, fruits and veg-
etables (made up this diet),"
Nison said. "As soon as I elimi-
nated the (cooked foods) which
were causing the problem, the
problem truly did go away."
Nison said he also took other
steps to improve his health.
"Health is more than just diet
alone," Nison said. "If you
expect to just change the food
you're eating and not change
the other important things -
getting enough sleep, getting
enough exercise, getting
enough water -you're not going
to be as healthy as you can be."


After relating his core prin-
ciples for health, Nison went
into greater detail on diet and
food. He described his defini-
tion of high-quality foods and
how they earn this distinction.
"Raw, ripe, fresh, organic
and live -,that's a high-quality
food," Nison said. "Why is it a
high quality food because
when it is in that form it has
two things in it: water and
enzymes."
He explained that the
enzymes which aid the body in
digestion are removed from
cooked food, and this forces
the body to work harder during
the digestive process.
He also sympathized with
those who could not make dras-
tic changes to their diet as he
did. He assured them that the
key was to incorporate as many
organic, raw fruits and vegeta-
bles into their diet as possible.
"It's not about being 100 per-
cent raw because you do not
have to be 100 percent raw to
be healthy," Nison said. "It's not
about all or none."
That registered with those at
the lecture. "We started (our
raw food diet) last March," said
Rosario Morris, a housewife
and a Fernandina Beach resi-
dent. "I thought (Nison) was
great. He was really informa-


live ... the lecture helps us to be
encouraged and to stay on our
raw food diet."
The lecture was attended by
more than 55 people, with some
coming from as far as Flagler
Beach. "I thought the turnout
was really impressive," said
Buster Beaton, Nassau Health
Foods owner. "Everybody who
has been back in the store has
been highly complimentary of
(Nison), and they're anxious to
see him in the spring when he
comes back."
Nassau Health Foods
brought in Nison in hopes of
promoting and further educat-
ing the local community about
raw foods. Last year, author
Tonya Zavasta spoke on raw
foods, and the store regularly
teaches raw foods classes.
'"The interest in raw food is
growing nationally, and raw
foods restaurants are starting to
pop up in North Florida,"
Beaton said. "There is one in
St. Augustine and one in
Atlantic Beach; several celebri-
ties like Woody Harrelson are
now promoting raw food so it's
becoming better and better
known."
Nassau Health Foods plans
to have Nison back in June.
The store's raw foods classes
will resume in January.

ThankYou,


Baptist Nassau Volunteers

In honor of the Baptist Nassau Auxiliary's
60th anniversary, Baptist Nassau is pleased
to recognize some of the 200 dedicated volunteers
who give so much to the hospital and the community.


Congratulations and thanks for all you do.


Jean Buatti, Coordinator and Tour Guide
Jean helps with administrative responsibilities for volunteers
and hospital tours for local 2nd graders. "When my husband
became ill, the staff and volunteers were great, so I decided to
volunteer. It feels like a community. Tours help children feel less

Harvesting horseshoe crabs


Hardly a inorninig's walk on
the beach goes by these days
that I don't see at least one
horseshoe crab, usually alone.
These prehistoric looking
arthropods, related to extinct
trilobites and modern day spi-
ders, roam the seashores up
and down the Atlantic Coast.
Horseshoe crabs are curi-
ous critters, harmless and
docile, going about their busi-
ness of scavenging and in turn
feeding the food chain above
them.
Aside from some archaeo-
logical evidence that early
Native Americans ate them, few
people today would consider
them edible, and if they are not
edible, then why catch them?
So, on a recent visit to the south
shore of Long Island, N.Y., on
one of my sadly camera-less per-
ambulations around town, I
came upon an unexpected sight.
A couple of fishermen were
unloading a boat chock full of
horseshoe crabs!

I greeted
the fishermen,
and marveled
oat their catch.
"Don't worry,
Ma'amn, we
have permits,"
they reassured
me, although I
hadn't asked.
WILD "But what are
WAYS you doing with
them?" I coun-
tered.
Pat "They're for
Foster-Turley bait. We fish
for conchs."
And the mystery got deeper,
before I unraveled it. Conchs,
most of us Floridians know, are
large gastropod shells, pearly
pink inside and used as deco-
rations, or the flesh added to
stews to become conch chow-
der. But conchs, at least the
ones I know, don't live in cold
water they are purely a South
Florida/Caribbean form of mol-
lusk. It turns out that what the

TI R )


fishermen in Long Island call
conchs, here in Florida we call
whelks, and in an Italian restau-
rant they are called "scungilli,"
a nice edible-sounding pseudo-
nym.
Long Island has long been
known for clam and oyster
fisheries, but these stocks
have been depleted and are
closely regulated. To continue
to make a living, Long Island
commercial fishermen have
had to find new prey. As in
Cedar Key, where Florida fish-
erman prohibited from contin-
ued harvest of mullet moved to
commercial aquaculture of
clams (Wild Ways, Sept. 3), to
continue to ply their trade, fish-
erman everywhere need to be
flexible.
Not all the horseshoe crab
fishermen are catching them
for bait. By far the most horse-
shoe crab fishermen are catch-
ing crabs to sell to the biomed-
ical industry. Horseshoe crabs
have blue blood containing com-
pounds that help detect bacte-
ria, their eyes are useful
research models, and their
chitin-containing shells provide
material for contact lenses, hand
lotions and other commercial
products.
All of this harvesting was
previously below the radar of
fisheries officials and has led to
the decline of this lowly species.
Although a NOAA Fisheries
Management Plan is now in
place for horseshoe crabs and
harvest quotas are set and
policed, much more needs to
be known before effective pro-
tective efforts will be able to
restore the population to
healthy levels.
And, as-is often the case in
nature, a decline in one species
most often impacts another.


Now, for instance, a migratory
shorebird, the red knot, is also
declining in numbers along with
the crabs.
For eons, this long-distance
traveler, heading from the Arctic
to the tip of South America and
back again each year, stopped
along the way to feast on horse-
shoe crab eggs in places like
Chesapeake and Delaware
Bays. Now, though, their food
source is more limited, their
feeding stations are depleted
and their ultimate survival also
is in jeopardy.
In Florida, horseshoe crabs
do not usually spawn in the
large numbers once prevalent in
more northern coastal areas,
but they do mate along some
Florida beaches.
If you do find two horseshoe
crabs unmistakably coupled,
with a smaller one (the male)
atop a larger female the Florida
Department of Natural
Resources is interested too.
Check out the website
http://research.myfwc.com/ho
rseshoe_crab/ for information
on reporting your sightings.
As for the whelks that are
caught using horseshoe crabs
as bait, there is not yet a NOAA
Fisheries Management Plan in
place for them. But without
more research on populations,
and quotas in place, no doubt
these critters too will eventual-
ly be over-harvested.
The ocean is vast, but with-
out necessary control, its
resources are not vast enough
to continue to fill the nets and
supply the needs of our ever-
growing human population.

A horseshoe crab in Florida rides the surf at the beach,

are commonly found on Amelia Island. A clam-fishing
boat in Long Island is now used to catch horseshoe crabs
for bait to catch whelks for Italian restaurants, below.

to porn
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A Yulee man arrested last
month after investigators
reportedly discovered child
pornography on the Internet
linked to his computer IP
address has pleaded not guilty
to five charges of possession
of child pornography.
Dwayne Richard Bliffen,
46, was arrested Oct. 13; he
has since been released from
the Nassau County Jail on
$100,002 bopd.
According to Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy Sea-
graves, investigators initially
discovered the computer IP
address belonging to Bliffen
distributing picture and movie
files containing child pornog-
raphy in July.
The day after the initial dis-
covery, investigators discov-
ered that 64 of the 432 files
beingshared by Bliffen's com-
puter were "indicative of child
pornography," Seagraves said.
On July 19, 80 of 484 files
being shared allegedly con-
tained images of child pornog-
raphy.
Detectives seized the com-
puter from Bliffen's home after
obtaining a search warrant and
analyzed the contents; accord-
ing to Seagraves, several pic-
tures and video files containing
child pornography were
found, including images of
minors involved in sexual acts.
Assistant State Attorney
Doug Dorsey is prosecuting
the case. Bliffen will be rep-
resented by attorney Ronald
E. Sholes. Bliffen's next court
date was set for Tuesday.

there at all.
But thanks to my "L" visa

every (i60 days, I didn't have
much choice. Well, I guess

a choice. Rather, it came with

choice. I, being the conformist
I am, chose the latter. So I pur-
chased a ticket to Seoul post
haste.
I woke up tired on the
morning of departure. It had
been a long two weeks adjust-
ing to school. The week-long
October holiday celebrating
the founding of Communist
China in 1949 had just begun -
and all I wanted to do was
relax in Beijing. I groaned and
stood to my feet. I was not

about 1.5 hours. Whew. A

one.
Around 7 a.m., I hailed a
taxi and sped off for the sub-
way station. Once there, I
boarded line 13 for three
stops, transferred to line 2 for
five stops, then to the airport
express train for 30 minutes. I
was pushed for time interna-
tional departures require you
to check in 45 minutes before
departure. I hurried to the
check-in desk to get my ticket
and was told that you proceed-
ed through a short security
checkpoint and then received
your ticket! I had just wasted
15 valuable minutes! I dash
towards the counter, only to
discover my flight had disap-
peared from the monitor and I
was only about 3-5 minutes
past the 45 minute check-in
time. I had missed my flight.
I cannot tell you with what
anguish, frustration and des-
peration I appealed to the desk
clerk to help me. Poor thing, I
must have appeared deeply
frantic and shaken. I was, hon-
estly. While not too expensive,
I certainly did not want to

18:10 and Joane Pierre; a senior
at Immokalee, was second with
a time of 18:13.
Strasser's teammate, senior
Shelby Kittrell, finished 12th
with a time of 19:01. Strasser's
twin sister, Christina, took 66th
p[hce with a time of 20:31. The
Lady Pirate harriers took 14th
place with 378 points.
"One of our top five, Lindsay
Aldridge pulled an abdominal
muscle and was unable to run
thus a result a little less than we
expected," FBHS Coach Mark
Durr said. "Steph, Shelby and
Christina ran great races and
Steph was right there at the
end. We are very proud of all of
these girls, who worked so
hard to make it as far as they
did. We will use what we
learned here to get even fur-
ther next year.
"We hope Shelby nothing
but the best as she moves on.
She hasn't decided who she will
run for next year as of yet. We
know she is going to do great
things on and off the course."

No placefor computers



on the conference level


-f '- ere we are again, in the midst of the
holiday season when chestnuts
roast over open fire, Jack Frost nips
... at your nose and the BCS sticks in
your craw like one too many helpings of Aunt
Mae's Mississippi Mud Cake.
OK, so Oklahoma beat Texas Tech who
beat Texas who beat Oklahoma. Assuming all
three win next week, a decision must be
made as to who represents the Big 12 South
in the conference championship game Dec. 6.
So who should make this ever-important
determination? What time-tested, flawless
system can we look to in such a unique case
that requires the utmost rationalization? Why,
the BCS computers, that's who ... not. But
that's what will happen.
Seriously, this whole BCS thing has gotten
out of hand when we are now counting on
computers to decide conference champi-
onship matchups. What's next, the BCS
determining who flips the coin before games?
We've been force-fed the BCS method of
deciding who plays for a national champi-
onship for so long now that fans have likely
become numb to the whole process. But to
have the computer-generated mess nose its
way onto the conference level, where champi-
onships are still won on the field, feels dirty.
I know what you're thinking, how else can
the decision be made as to who represents
the Big 12 South? Well, there had to be at
least one three-way conference tie before the
BCS came about. Do what they did. Heck,
have a three-way playoff next Monday or
'Tuesday (1 know it's not feasible, but would it
not be more fair?). Draw straws, for goodness
sake. Just don't give the computer nerds any
more power than they already have.
Conference championship titles have a
genuine feel, if you get my drift. For the sake
of keeping this forthright, black and white
part of college football intact, here's to hoping
that two out of the above three lose their final
regular season games and eliminate the need
for a tiebreaker ...


Where the University of
Florida fits into all this BCS
lunacy remains an enigma,
S though many predict that a
win over Florida State next
week and another over the
Alabama Crimson Tide Dec.
6 will be enough to thrust
Sthe Gators into the BCS
Championship game. Don't
asl, me, however, because I
SPORTS don't speak "computer."...
The Gators did what they
TALK had to against the Citadel
Saturday, winning 70-19
JOHN L. mostly behind the efforts of
CRAWFORD the backups. While I can see
the rationale behind not
scheduling a "losable" game
as the 12th game, there has to be a more
competitive opponent willing to come to The
Swamp without the benefit of a return trip.
The Bulldogs played as hard as they could
but don't have anywhere close to the athletes
that Florida has. I guess my point is, why
even play a game that can do nothing but
hurt your strength of schedule? ...
With all the above said, hats off to local
football product Terrell Dallas, who per-
formed admirably for the Citadel in the loss.
Dallas, a 2008 Fernandina Beach graduate
and a running back for the Citadel, carried 14
times for 33 yards for the Bulldogs against
the Gators. Dallas came into The Swamp as
the reigning Southern Conference Freshman
of the W,.Is after posting a 49-yard, Iwo-
touchdown rushing performance in the
Citadel's 24-21 victory over Clhatanooga Nov.
15. Playing in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, even
as the opponent, had to be a rush for a guy
who grew up as a Gator fan ...
Minnesota 30, Jacksonville 12. Going
through the motions, it appears, has already
begun in the River City. Is it 2009 yet?

days. E-mail him atl,'il.ar.t',l T.*",.1. rcom.

WEDNISDAY. NovMBl3'R 26.2008 SPORTS News-Leader


Boatright crowned club champion


Each day golf seems to
take on a different format,
which can lead to confusion
and frustrating results. In
what was virtually a replay of
the Fernandina Beach Men's
Golf Association champi-
onship tournament, a two-day
Club Championship (limited
to players who had paid an
upfront fee to the city course)
was held Saturday and
Sunday at the Fernandina
Beach Golf Club.
Thirty-two players took
part with the format being
such that the player with the
best two-round score was not
the overall champion.
The tournament was flight-
ed in such a way that only
those who chose to play in
the championship flight (10)
were considered to be eligible
to be club champion even
though all but the super sen-
ior division played from the
white tees.
In the championship flight,
Ronnie Boatright was the win-
ner and club champion with a
two-day score of 149. Joe
Parrish was second at 155
and Price Poole third at 158.
Simon Carter was the net win-
ner with a 160 (net 146).
In the senior division,
Tommy Shave was the winner
in the first flight with a 148.
Larry Brauda finished sec-
ond at 154 while Hydie
Peterson was the net winner
at 149.
In the second flight,
Robert Johnson took first
gross with a 175, followed
closely by Jeff Humphrey at
176. Jim Raffone was the net
winner at 152.
In the super senior divi-
sion (over 65 and playing
from the gold tees), the win-
ner was Don Stipcak (154).
Sammy Alvarez was second at
160. Frank Finocchio was the
net winner at 141.


GOLF NEWS


Men's blitz
On a cool and windy
Wednesday the turnout for
the blitz was only fair as 43
players took part at the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
Tliere was a three-way tie for
individual honors at plus 8
between Larry Brauda (76),
Charles Kicklighter (84), who
did not make it onto a win-
ning team, and Don Stipcak
(76).
With the smaller turnout,
the format for the day was
three-man teams. With
Brauda and Stipcak (both
plus 8) on the same team,
Woody Kallas's 87 and minus
1 didn't hurt as the team fin-
ished first at plus 15.
There was a two-way tie
for second and third at a dis-
tant plus 6. The teams were
made up by Don Cheshire
(84. plus 4), Bob Riley (85,
plus 2), Rudy Campanale (98,
even) and Rich Vredenburgh
(86, plus 3), Al Jump (92, plus
2), Jim McFarland (98, plus
1).
Fourth place at plus 4
went to Freelon Pate (90, plus
5), Jim Pierce (86, plus 1) and
Mike Lovejoy (86, mius 3).
Friday was also chilly and
breezy for the 52 players com-
ing out to play in the blitz. It
was one of those days when
37 of the 52 players were on
the minus side point wise.
There were a few good scores
with Mike Lovejoy shooting a
78 and plus 9 points to take
individual honors but was not
making a winning team. Jim
Roberts, with a 75 and plus 8
points, was a close second.
Frank Finocchio had a 78 and
plus 6 for third.
One of the lowest winning
team totals of the year, plus 2,


was good enough for two
teams to lie for first and sec-
ond places. Roberts' plus 8
got just enough help from
Rudy Campanale (97, plus 2)
to offset the minus 6 of Carl
O'Rourke (85) and the minus
2 of Tony Jarzyna (92) to tie
with Dick Peterson (100, plus
2), Rich Vredenburgh (87,
plus 1), Mike Joyce (74, even)
and Dennis Sassenger (86,
minus 1).
The other winning team
totals were on the minus side
as Lew Akins (89, plus 2),
Ronnie Boatright (75, plus 2),
Dennis Moorehead (85,
minus 2) and Jack Croake
(87, minus 4) came in third at
minus 2.
There was a three-way tie
for fourth place at minus 6.
Finocchio's plus 6 got no help
from Dan Cisson (91, minus
2), Jack Harrison (94, minus
5) or Michael Kaufman (95,
minus 5) as the team tied with
Jerry Dean (77, plus 1), Allen
Sage (82, minus 1), Jim
Raffone (89, minus 1), Bill
Larrabee (94, minus 5) and
Terry Lacoss (77, plus 3), Jay
Waddell (82 minus 1), Larry
Brauda (87, minus 3), Dave
Mudd (96, minus 5).
There was no Saturday
morning breakfast mixer due
to the Club Championship
tournament starting on
Saturday morning.

SaThanksgiving weekend. The Skins
Game has been an annual tradition during the Thanksgiving holiday for many
decades. The format of the event is simple. Each hole is designated with a dol-
lar amount to the winner. If one of the four players has the lowest score after
completing a hole, they get the money added to their winnings. If there is a tie
on a hole, the money carries over to the next hole. Last year, with $650,000 at
stake on the 18th hole, Stephen Ames coolly knocked his 7-foot birdie putt into
the center of the cup to win the LG Skins Game for the second year in a row.

We talk all the time about how to
Gain strokes on our golf game and
Working around the green is a vital
component. However, one of the
areas that we hardly ever work on is
the very short wedge. We are talking
anywhere from the 20-yard to the
50-yard shot that is very difficult because we never
take a full swing like a pitching wedge or with our
irons. Here are a couple of drills to practice to
improve your short wedge game. The first drill is to
set a goal for yourself on the range or around the
green and practice hitting the ball consistently that
distance. This helps you get a feel for how much
backswing you need to hit the ball the appropriate
distance. The other drill is to roll golf balls under-
hand a set distance in order to try to develop a
rhythm for those tricky short pitch shots.


During the second stage of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament last week in Texas, J.P.
Hayes discovered that on two shots on one hole, he had unwittingly used a prototype golf
ball not approved for competition by the United States GolfAssociation. Hayes, honoring the \''-
tradition of a game where the players police themselves, tumed himself in and was disqualified.\ '-: -.
"It's extremely disappointing," Hayes said. "I keep thinking I'm going to wake up and this is going \ev
to be a bad nightmare." On his 12th hole of the first round, Hayes played two shots with a ball that
was not the same model with which he started the round, which is a two-stroke penalty. Later that night in his
hotel room, Hayes told the officials that the errant golf ball might not have been on the USGA's approved list. The
officials confirmed it was not approved and he was disqualified. Hayes, 43, is refusing to blame his caddie for the
error, saying he should have spotted the errant ball because it did not have a model name on the seam.

Club hosts

Wyatt trout

tournament


were near perfect
Sunday during the
15th annual Knox
Wyatt Memorial Sea Trout
Tournament. The weather
had been quite cold and
windy the day preceding the
popular
event, while
contestants
found calmer
winds and
warmer air
Ltempera-
tures on
Sunday
1 morning.
OUTDOORS The tide was
perfect as
well with a
TerryLacoss high tide
arriving in the Amelia River
just before daybreak.
The moon phase was ideal
as well with the moon
between the last quarter and
a new moon. However, most
fishermen who fared well dur-
ing the event related the per-
fect trout fishing conditions to
previous cold fronts'that had
dropped the water tempera-
ture and ultimately improved
sea trout fishing conditions.
"I had located a small
drop-off that was holding bet-
ter-than-average size specks
prior to the tournament,"
Capt. Terry D. Lacoss said.
"It was a small oyster shelf
located at the mouth of Egans
Creek and in five feet of
water. As the tide was falling,
those big specks were feed-
ing right on top of the shelf
where it dropped off into 20
feet of water.
"My fishing party included
Scott Hood, who is a two-time
winner of the Wyatt trout
tournament, Paul Braeger,
and Jeff Bennett. All were
drifting live shrimp under a
small float over the trout
drop. However, it was Jeff
Bennett that found the right
drift. His float was jerked
under in a large boil and 20-
pound fishing line was soon
running from his saltwater
spinning reel.," ,
"really' thoughtthat I had
hooked a big red the way it
was taking fishing line from
my fismling reel," Bennett
said. "The big fish would
occasionally corhe to the sur-
face in a wash of water, but
we still could not identify my
hooked fish."
As in many situations
when backwater fishing,
there are so many species of
saltwater game fish that fish-
ermen really don't know what
they have hooked until the
game fish comes to the side
of the boat.
"All of a sudden this huge
trout came to the surface at
the side of my Triton charter
boat," Lacoss said. "I was
standing ready with the land-
ing net, but I soon found that
the trout was too long for the
net. The head was sticking
out one side of the net and tail
out the other side."
Fortunately, Bennett's sea

trout was soon netted and a
new tournament big trout
record was established.
Bennett's trout weighed 6.9
pounds.
"It was one of the best sea
trout days I have seen in sev-
eral fishing seasons," Lacoss
said. "Right after Jeff landed
his big trout, Scott Hood land-
ed a 4.1-pound sea trout and
Paul Braeger boated one over
three pounds."
There were several other
winners in the popular tour-
nament, including some
excellent catches of redfish. I
was fishing with Jack Healan
and Norman Bray, while drift-
ing live shrimp close to, boat
docks. During the entire
morning, we stayed hooked
up to redfish in the three- to
five-pound class and literally
forgot we were fishing in a
trout tournament.
There were awards for
several categories, including
redfish. Bruce Comrie
weighed in the largest red-
fish, weighing 6.9 pounds.

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


Thanksgiving a time for family and counting


t is that time of year again. You
can't miss all the signs of antici-
pation and preparation. Visit any
grocery store and you are greet-
ed by pyramids of all that makes a
traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Cans of green beans, yams and cran-
berry sauce join mountains of
crunchy packages of Pepperidge
cornbread stuffing. Pass the bakery
and you will find pumpkin and pecan
pies. Many a shopping list will have a
note: "Don't forget the whipped
cream."
The star of the show is the turkey.
Ham is OK, but turkey is the name of
the game. The traditional center-
piece of most Thanksgiving dinners,
the turkey is so important that there


are help-lines to
offer assistance to
those roasting,
toasting or barbecu-
ing their holiday
bird.
S, Thanksgiving is
a favorite holiday at
Sour house. In fact, it
is our Christmas. It
FROM is the one time of
THE the year that we
PORCH can count on all
three sons, their
S wives, children, and
Dickie even dogs, to be
Anderson together. The
"other" Christmas
will scatter everyone to other fami-


lies and celebrations. We have to
share.
This year the Big Guy and I are
going away for Thanksgiving. It will
be quite a change from our usual cel-
ebration. Traditionally our family
gathers on the porch by the marsh to
share the long Thanksgiving week-
end. This year we will celebrate at
the house of my oldest son and his
very pregnant wife. So pregnant that
she cannot travel. My two grand-
daughters will meet for the first time.
Eleanor, a worldly-wise two years
plus, and Josie, a rapidly growing 8-
month-old, will spend their first
cousin time together. Soon to join
them is 'TBD" (to be determined).
So we don't know if we will have a


trio of girls or a boy to mix it up.
There is never a dull moment when
our gang gathers and this year may
offer the biggest surprise of all a
new baby.
There will be raucous moments
and there will be sober moments.
Thanksgiving triggers memories of
other gatherings and family mem-
bers no longer with us. It is a time
for missing those gone and celebrat-
ing our new little ones. I never fail to
think of my mother's beautifully set
table and my father offering the fami-
ly blessing.
Every moment is treasured. Even
the cleanup offers quality time.
Dishes are scraped, washed and put
away while we catch up with all the


blessings

news of everyone's busy lives. We
often take a walk after the big meal,
hoping to offset our over-indulgence.
We know that there are game boards
and more pie waiting for us when we
return.
The familiar is comforting so the
thought of traditional food is pleas-
ing. As you celebrate your own
Thanksgiving raise a glass and give
thanks for friends and family as well
as the tough times that are making
us even more thankful for our bless-
ings.

Boomer is a white Percher-

through historic Fernandina
since 2005. He is believed to
be the largest horse in North-
east Florida, standing 6 feet, 2
inches at his shoulders and
weighing in at 2,300 pounds.
Boomer has been on British

book about him, Boomer, is

Eighth Street, may be unique,
even for Boomer. Though he
has worked an Amish farm in
Ohio and pulled logs for a liv-

never led hundreds of singing
people, bearing candles. Police


estimated last year's inaugural
procession at roughly 200.
More are expected this second
year of the festival.
No doubt Boomer will be in

Jane Lindberg, director of the
Amelia Island Chamber
Singers. Lindberg will conduct
the processors in carols from
the back of the carriage and is
hoping for a smooth ride.
When the procession reach-

file into the hall and Lindberg
will conduct the Songspinners
in a Christmas concert, laced
with hot chocolate and cook-

want to be is a lap dog! I can
be very calm and affectionate
but I do love a great game of
fetch with a nice fluffy toy. If
you'll let me, all I want to do is
lie down with my head on
your knee and be loved. I do
very well with other dogs and
actually would prefer to have
a buddy to pay with in a big
yard but it's you I want to
spend my time with. Will you
share your lap with me?

I:or the News Leader

Susanne Brisach of Fernan-
dina Beach, a member of the
Smocking Arts. Guild of
America (SAGA), attended the
29th annual International Con-
vention in Atlanta, where she
was installed on the Interna-
tional Board of Directors for
her second term as treasurer.
The mission of SAGA is to
preserve and foster the art of
smocking and related needle
arts for future generations
through education, communi-
cation and quality workman-
ship. Members meet annually
for a business meeting and to.
attend educational classes.
The convention featured a
design show of original heir-
loom entries together with fea-
ture speaker Tamura from the
Japanese Embroidery Center
in Dunwoody, Ga. She spoke
on Nuido, the Way of Embroid-
ery. Teachers of SAGA-approv-
ed classes taught 64 classes in
smocking, fine hand and ma-
chine sewing, and embroidery.
SAGA's international Wee
Care service, project provides
handmade preemie baby
gowns, blankets, bonnets and


Walk-in' s Welcome Every Pay

tal hospital units. Convention
attendees donated over 1,125
items to two local Atlanta hos-
pitals. Local chapters are active
in their communities year
round. This past year they
donated more than 6552 Wee
Care items to their local hospi-
tals and funeral homes.
SAGA programs offered to
members include the Artisan
Program, a self-enrichment
educational program. Partici-
pant takes classes, earns points,
submits projects for evaluation
and upon passing evaluation,
achieves levels of Apprentice,
Artisan and Master in of smock-
ing, fine hand and machine
sewing and embroidery.
In addition to in-class offer-
ings of SAGA-approved class-
es, SAGA offers its members
correspondence courses, a trav-
eling SAGA Trunk Show, a
Wee Care Trunk Show, a quar-
terly publication, SAGANews,
and its website, www.smock-
ing.org.
