FULL MOON RISING


One of the joys of liv-
ing on Amelia Island
is watching the full
moon rising over the
ocean. Especially on
Friday night, when
the moon was larger
and brighter than
usual because of its
proximity to Earth -
the closest orbit in 15
years. The full moon
brings out all manner
of wild creatures.

News-Leader


When employees: of The
Timberland Company, a New
Hampshire-based boots and outer-
wear manufacturer, came to Amelia
Island for their national sales meeting
this month, they brought along their
work clothes.
Timberland account executives,
and salespeople from all across the
country rolled up their sleeves for a
workday Dec. 10 at the Boys & Girls
Club building at 11th and Indigo
streets.
Club President-elect Bill Gower
was approached by Timberland exec-
utives in August when they were in
the area researching local non-profits
with an eye toward completing a com-
munity service project during their
annual conference.

im just blown away. The kids are so happy.
REGGIE WILLIAMS. BOYS &GIRLS CLUB DIRECTOR


1970(i and '80s, Timbtrland set up a
for mal program in 1992 and has been
involved in "-The Pathl Olf Service,"
projects to benefit the cities where
their meetings take place. Employees
are encouraged to take-advantage of
40 paid hours of'community service
annually.
"Community greening is our core
strategy for 2008-2009," said
Timberland Community Service
Manager Tom Roberts.
"We did some research and got
connected with folks and did site vis-
its," said Roberts. One visit was a
review of the Boys & Girls Club.
"We decided to go and see what


they could use and they said the grass
all dries up and they could use some
outdoor space to hold activities
because inside is so small. So we
pulled together a project that involved
inside and outside."
SGower told Roberts the club has
been. successful for children and
youths in the neighborhood,.but the
building itself is limited and since the
site lacked irrigation, the outside land-
scaping was sparse at best.
"Obviously the facility was not
designed for a Boys & Girls Club,"
said Gower. "It needed help."
Dreamscapes, a local company, put
a plan together that included installing


irrigation and completely re-land-
scaping the -ite. Timberland approved
the plan and donated 8.30.000 for the
effort to ,sp uce up the club. .
In addition to landscaping, proj-
ects included pouring concrete to put'
in water fountain and forming con-
crete pad that will be roofed over to
provide a shaded area.
Plantings included rye seed for
grass, palm and magnolia trees and,
native grasses. Dreamscapes also
installed raised beds for a vegetable
garden and a flowerbed. Timberland
also donated computers to enhance
the students' after-school Power Hour
when they do their homework.
Sixty-six Timberland volunteers
swarmed the site Dec. 10, painting
inside and out, installing permanent
benches by the basketball court,
building a playground, putting togeth-

Cutfat to make a difference in holiday cooking


MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Some holiday
changes are harder to hide than others.
For instance, if the traditional 12 Days of
Christmas were suddenly reduced to the
Six Days of Christmas, we'd all notice. It's
easy to make subtle changes in holiday
food preparation, especially in recipes
that use high-fat ingredients such as but-
ter or whipping cream. Over time, repeat-
ed with consistency, those subtle changes
become delightfully pronounced as
healthy eaters lose weight.
Fat has more than twice the calories of
other foods, according to Ann Ruelle, RD,
CD, CLSC, registered dietitian, educator
and nutrition consultant for TOPS Club,
Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), the orig-
inal weight-loss support organization.
Ruelle says it makes sense to curb fat in
daily diets when controlling calories to
achieve or maintain weight loss.
TOPS offers a few cooking tips from
Ruelle to get healthy eaters through the
holidays.
For starters, instead of using 1 cup of


9 j or baking, use 1/2 cup
k2 of butter plus 1/2 cup
of applesauce, other
: fruit sauce, or baby
S food. However,
Ruelle cautions, if
cooks replace all but-
ter in a recipe with pureed fruit, they will
sacrifice taste, texture and appearance.
Some flavor ideas to consider - prune
puree pairs well with chocolate, spice and
carrot cakes; mashed bananas work nice-
ly in carrot or banana cake or muffins.
Also, 1 cup of whipping cream can be .
replaced in one of three ways:
* 1 cup of very cold skim milk
whipped with 1 tablespoon of flour,
* 1 cup of very cold whipped evaporat-
ed skim milk, or
* 1/2 cup of low-fat yogurt mixed with
1/2 cup of low-fat, salt-free cottage cheese.
To replace cream in cream soup,
Ruelle suggests thickening with mashed
potatoes or cooked rice. First, blend the


potatoes or rice with a little soup and then
stir the mixture back into the soup pot; it
will have a great texture without the guilt.
To replace 1 cup of sour cream, mix 1
cup of low-fat cottage cheese with 2 table-
spoons of skim milk and 1 tablespoon of
lemon juice, or simply use fat-free sour
cream, Ruelle says.
TOPS, the nation's oldest, non-profit
weight-loss education and support organi-
zation,. is celebrating 60 years of weight-
loss support and success in 2008.
Founded and headquartered in
Milwaukee, Wis., TOPS promotes suc-
cessful weight management with a philos-
ophy that combines healthy eating, regu-
lar exercise, wellness education and
support from others at weekly chapter
meetings. TOPS has nearly 180,000 mem-
bers in almost 10,000 chapters through-
out the world.
Visitors are welcome to attend their
first TOPS meeting free of charge. To

ROBBERY Continued from 1A
the robbery and assault of
Rebecca and Roy Lewane on
Nov. 22.
According to police,
Rebecca Lewane, 67, was sit-
ting in a vehicle waiting for
her husband when she was
confronted by a man who
brandished a gun and
ordered her to give him her
purse; when her husband,
Roy, 83, got to the car he
struggled with the suspect
over control of the gun. The
woman gave the man her
purse and he fled on foot to a
waiting vehicle.
The robbery of the
Michigan couple was one in a
string of armed robberies that
occurred in Fernandina-
Beach and Yulee in recent
weeks. Earlier this month,
two men were arrested in
connection with the robbery
of Whataburger in Yulee; one
of the men is also linked to
the attempted robbery of a
71-year-old woman in down-
town Fernandina Beach.
There has been no arrest in
the armed robbery of a taxi
driver at 1 a.m. Nov. 20 on
Baker Drive in Yulee.

Sasser said he has been
working in construction as a
general contractor since he left
the U.S. Navy in 1972 when he
was 24. He is a certified build-

Journeyman of Operating

Club members began arriv-
ing by bus from various
schools at 2 p.m. Instead of
their usual after-school activi-
ties, the children were
whisked off to the Miller Boys
& Girls Club on Nassauville
Road, where they enjoyed an
Environmental Day presenta-
tion by Timberland.
Following this, the down-
town club members were
returned to 11th and Indigo,
where they were free to enjoy
their newly renovated club and


receive gifts purchased by
Timberland employees to ful-
fill their "Wish Upon a Star"
Christmas requests.
Club Director Reggie
Williams was overwhelmed by
Timberland's generosity.
"Right now, I'm fighting
back tears. I'm just blown
away. This is wonderful. The
kids are so happy because
they feel as if they're getting
something that's really theirs.
There's a real sense of own-
ership about it."
Williams said the center
supports about 40 to 45 chil-
dren on a regular basis.

BUS WEDNESDAY. DECIMB:R 17.2008/NEWS-LEADER


__BUSINESS


Pro-government, anti-business?


Government has no busi-
ness beig the top employer in
your town, state or country.
But that is the wrong direc-
tion we are heading right
now. And you always thought
large corporations, mid-sized
businesses and mom-and-pop
shops provided the jobs. My
how times have changed in the
U.S.
S The federal government was
one of the few employers that
added jobs and increased
staffing over the past year.
Conversely, most companies in
the private sector have been
shedding jobs and downsizing.
This is what private businesses
do when the economy slows.
But not government.
Locally, when was the last time
you heard of a county or city
department being downsized
or jobs being trimmed - even
during this severe economic
downturn?
The city and county gov-
ernments here have been per-
ceived as employment agencies
of sorts over the' years.


STEVE'S

what is hap-
pening on the
outside, the

PLACE. Our area
is not alone,
however.
Steve Nicklas How often
have you
heard about the state or feder-
al'governments scaling back as
the economy weakens? It just
doesn't happen.
Janet Adkins, the new state
representative for this area,
held a forum recently for small
businesses in Nassau County
- and the difficult environment
they face-right now. Adkins is
pledging to start an initiative to
reduce the burden on busi-
nesses.
It is about time the focus


When was the last time you heard ofa county

shifted to businesses. City
and county officials here should
follow Adkins' lead. Sone-
one at the forum asked how
picturesque and quaint down-
town Fernandina Beach would
look if the storefronts were
boarded up because of a weak
economy.
Other speakers pleaded for
a break on taxes or insurance or
on restrictions - many imposed
by local and state officials. The
current business environment
is simply onerous.
Prominent business repre-
sentatives such as Melba
Whitaker, 'Paul Audet and
George Langstaff attended to
voice their concerns.
Government and businesses
should operate as a partner-
ship. The more sales produced

or industrial outfit, the more
taxes that are generated in one
way or another. This in turn
helps create more jobs,
strengthening a local economy.
And there is plenty govern-
ment can do. Take the state of
Oklahoma as an example. To
attract business, Oklahoma
offers a variety of incentives,
from reductions in property
taxes to income tax credits for
adding jobs.
Cities such as Tuscaloosa,
Ala., have attracted major
employers like Mercedes-Benz
by providing an advantageous
environment to operate. The
businesses in turn will often
donate land for parks or prom-
ise to build schools.
The majority of new busi-
ness activity here has.been with
big-box retail stores and chain
restaurants. These hardly ben-
efit local businesses, and
instead provide substantial com-
petition. There is an abundance
of land in Nassau County,
where sizable clean-industry
companies would gladly locate
- for the right price.
Existing local businesses
deserve this same "right price."
They should be catered to and
fostered by local governments
- and not ignored or hassled. It
is almost like we have adopted
an "anti-business" attitude, right
here among our neighbors and
friends.

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Law enforcement officials
are looking for the driver of a log
truck who left the scene of an
accident that left a Yulee man
hospitalized.
Javan Melton, 67, was listed
in serious condition Tuesday
'afternoon at Shands
Jacksonville.
Nassau County Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper said the fact that
Melton survived the crash
seemed "miraculous."
According to Florida
Highway Patrol spokesperson
Lt. Bill Leeper, Melton was driv-
ing a Buick westbound on A1A
about 8:15 a.m., on his way off
Amelia Island, when he was
struck by an empty log truck,
also traveling west, when it
changed lanes.
Melton lost control of his
vehicle and traveled through
the median into the eastbound
lane, where he was struck by a
1998 freightliner semi tractor-
trailer driven by Glenn Owens,
47, who was not injured in the
accident.
Melton was taken by ambu-
lance to Shands following the
accident, which caused west-
bound traffic to be temporarily

Message from


the publisher

With today's edition we have increased
our single-copy price of the News-Leader to
75 cents.
This decision was as difficult as the deci-
sion to raise the price from 25 to 50 cents 15
years ago in 1993.
The increase is due to the continued
escalation of our expenses in the production
and distribution of Nassau County's most
comprehensive source of local information.
I hope our loyal readers will continue to
find value in our product Every edition con-
tains local advertising, news, event and
entertainment content available nowhere
else.
If you feel that 75 cents per edition to be
unreasonable please consider purchasing an
annual subscription (in-county) and receive
all 104 editions for only 35 cents' an edition.
The entire News-Leader staff and I value
your readership of our product and are
committed to continuing to provide the
highest quality local newspaper to you, our
readers.

,,COMMU.NITYTHANKS

American Legion Post54
On behalf of the members of American
Legion Post 54, the Auxiliary Unit, the Sons
of the Legion and the American Legion Riders,
we wish to thank Mayor Bruce Malcolm for
his remarks at the Legion's groundbreaking
ceremony on Dec. 5, 2008. The mayor, a
Marine Corps veteran himself, acknowledged
the sacrifices veterans make to serve their
country, and he offered full support for the
American Legion and this project. We should
also thank the Fernandina Beach City
Commission for their overwhelming support.
of this project to date.
The Theodore H. Hernandez American
Legion Post 54 was originally chartered in
1919, and the Post has never owned its own
home.
That will change in the coming months as
citizens witness the construction of a modern
7,200-square-foot meeting hall at Third and
Gum streets. Construction will be completed
no later than August 2009.
This new Post will serve veterans'and the
citizens of Fernandina Beach for generations
to come.
Once again, we thank the City of
Fernandina Beach for its support of.the
American Legion not only for this project but
for all of the support received over the years.
For several decades the American Legion has
utilized the old log cabin, which is city prop-
erty, at 12th and Atlantic. Members will fond-
ly remember this grand' old building; espe-
cially its beautiful fireplace thatwarmed many
a soul over the years. She will be missed but
never forgotten.
As the construction begins on our new
home, we, the members of this pioud' organ-
ization, will plan how to use this facility to
support veterans and the youth of our coun-
try, our future leaders, while.acknowledging
our obligation to be good citizens and neigh-
bors to all those in Fernandina Beach who
have worked so hard to support us.
For God and country,
Thomas J. Gora
Post 54 Historian
Fernandina Beach

Christmas thief
Our family has always enjoyed decorating our
house for Christmas. We have added to our dis-
play over the years. This year my father bought
me some new border lights as a gift. They were
in the shape of stars and peppermint candies
that changed colors, flashed and put on quite a dis-
play. I really appreciated this gift and the lights.
I was able to enjoy them for five days. Apparently
someone else liked them too because last night
they decided to steal the lights.
I cannot dismiss this as vandalism because
they were the only items taken or disturbed. It is
bad enough to be a thief but stealing Christmas
decorations is even worse. What is worse to me
is the person who stole them has probably set
them up in their own yard for their own enjoy-
ment. How could you possibly enjoy something'
you have stolen from another? Obviously this
individual has absolutely no conscience as a thief
who obviously feels it is perfectly acceptable to
steal Christmas decorations!
I'cannot even imagine what type of individual
could do such a thing. I hope whoever this thief
is will see this letter and just maybe realize how
despicable and vile their actions were. Afriend of
mine labeled it correctly when they said, 'That is
simply wicked." During this time, when we focus
on caring and religion you would think even
those without any sense of right and wrong would
take pause and think of the actions.
'I know this disgusting act of theft will have a
permanent impact on how our family sets up our
lights. So beware to everyone who puts out
Christmas decorations - there is a Christmas
thief!

Commissioners'actions
.Have our commissioners, city and county,
never heard of the "Newspaper Test"?
Years ago, when I was at GE, all managers
were taught one rule of life: If you don't think it
will look right, or if you don't want to see it on the
front page of the New York Times - don't, don't,
don't do it.
Suggest our commissioners - all types -
remember this rule.
Reports of our commissioners' actions - e.g.,
bulk buying of cars from an out of town source
and awarding noncompetitive contracts - while
I'm sure totally above board, do not look good on
the front page of the News-Leader.
The recent election should make all politi-
cians realize that elected officials are held to a
higher standard. Too bad our commissioners,'
mommies weren't successful in teaching them the
Concept of the dangers of even the appearance of
wrongdoing. The governor of Illinois is learning
that lesson now. Our commissioners should take
notes.

Random acts ofkindness
It is usually around this time of year when
you see people standing in lines looking grumpy
and not very cheerful. Whatever happened to
Chins jias cheer? . ...' .ii .i d s.....
i -...,ull lke ,.- i recognize two individuals in the
community that recently affected our family and
thank them. I was standing in the grocery line in'
Winn-Dixie a few days ago with a buggy full of
groceries; it was a busy time in the store, there
Swas a lady standing in the next line with two
, kids. She looked over at me and smiled as I was
standing in line, then reached into her bag and
handed me a coupon to receive a significant
amount off of my purchase and told me Merry
Christmas! This was a person that I had never
before seen in my life, who thought enough of me
to extend something that made a difference to me.
Thank you very much!
SMy son was recently shown a random act of
kindness as well. The Fernandina Beach Rotary
Club held a Christmas party for the Fernandina
Beach Boys & Girls Club, my son attended and
was very thankful for all the love that was shown
and the gifts which he received. He was talking
With someone with the Rotary Club about how his
grades were so much better than last semester,
and how much he wanted a specific stuffed ani-
mal. Today when attending his Christmas lunch
as school, his "Secret Santa" from the Rotary
Club stopped by his classroom at Emma Love
Elementary and dropped off.his special gift to
him. Thank you so much for extending such
kindness to our family!

Taxation discrimination
The fair market value of a property is best
determined by a recent sale of the property or a
recent appraisal of the property.
According ,to Nassau County Property
Appraiser Greg Haddock, the fair market value
is reduced by 15 percent to determine the
assessed value. This reduction is called: a net
proceeds reduction and is intended to offset pre-
dictable costs associated with the sale of:the
property such as real estate c;nimissions, clos-
ing costs, etc. For example, if the fair market
value were $100,000, the assessed value would be
15 percent less, or $85,000. The assessed value,
minus exemptions, determines the property tax.-
My Fernandina Beach rental home was
recently appraised at $580,000 (fair market value).
For some reason, the assessed value is higher -
$580,274. On Nov. 6, I appeared before the
Property Value Adjustment Board to request that
the 15 percent net proceeds reduction ($1,558) be
applied to my home. My request was denied.
This non-waterfront home is 1,364 square feet and
the annual property tax is $10,386.


According to the property appraiser's web-
site, www.nassauflpa.com, Nassau County
Property Appraiser Greg Haddock purchased
his home on April 19, 2007, for $185,000. At that
time, he determined the assessed value was
$140,778. Thus, Mr. Haddock received a 24 per-
cent reduction from the fair market value.
Currently, the assessed value of Mr. Haddock's
home is listed as $146,706. This'represents a 21
percent reduction. Mr. Haddock's annual property
tax is $1,473.
If you are not receiving at least a 15 percent
net proceeds reduction, you may be a victim of
what I call "taxation discrimination."
If you contact the Nassau County appraiser
and ask for a reduction, you will probably be told
that they are not required to provide any reduc-
tion. If you aren't satisfied with that answer, you


*
's 60%



aip
b


can request a hearing before the Value
Adjustment Board. The Value Adjustment Board
consists of a special magistrate appointed by the
state of Florida, the county's property appraisers
and their attorney. So, your chance of prevailing
before the Value Adjustment Board is about the
same as your chance of prevailing before, oh,
say, a firing squad. You could sue the appraiser's
office, although your attorney's fees and court
costs will probably be more than the taxes you will
save.
You may consider contacting your county
and/or city commissioner to ask them what cri-
teria the property appraiser uses to determine
exactly who is entitled to a net proceeds reduc-
tion and who is not.
You should also ask exactly how the apprais-
er determines the amount of the reduction for
each property: 0 percent, 15percent, 21 percent,
24 percent, 50 percent You may want to consid-
er contacting Gov. Crist as well.
At present, property valuations in Nassau
County are inaccurate, outdated and inequitable.
The Nassau County Property Appraiser has an
obligation to the taxpayers of Nassau County to
update property valuations to reflect current mar-
ket conditions. The Nassau County Property
Appraiser needs to standardize the net proceeds
reduction and apply it to each property: on an
equal basis.

Qtymarina
My wife and I recently visited your city on our,
sailboat "Orca" and stayed at your marina for
about a week. We enjoyed visiting your charming
city, eating in your restaurants and doing some
Christmas shopping in your businesses. While
these were certauidy enjoyable il ti**k I gaiiffld-
some weighlL tronmdia. t w,.ndr ful rutIai'hA d ae
had a great time at the tree lighting, the real
highlight of the week was the stay at your mari-
na.
You have a superb facility. It is very nicely
laid out; with excellent docks and reliable
services for a fair price. That will always get
the attention of traveling boaters. However,
where you go above and beyond the usual
marina is the staff. They are: not only very help-
ful and knowledgeable, but truly nice people,
,too.
The competence of handling the docks
deserves a specific mention. As you may know,
you get some tricky currents along the river and
when the wind is coming from the southwest to
west, there's quite a bit of fetch, too. That makes
for some challenging conditions at times and we
saw a couple of circumstances where boats were
having a difficult time safely getting to,the'dock.
Roger and Roy, in particular, were calming influ-
ences.in those anxiety-piovoking situations. I'm
positive that the calm, reassuring radio manner
and clear, succinct instructions to the captain
-saved a couple. of boats from getting crunched in
one difficult docking I witnessed.
On the administrative end, Heather also
deserves a special mention. She answered our
questions with grace and knowledge and pro-
vided helpful information about the city. Our dog
also fell in love with her, and that's not easily
done. She was charming and ajoywith whom to,
deal.
I realize that in this time of budgetary delib-
erations and difficult decisions, the role of city
commission member and manager can be a hard
:one. My wife (who servedin our home, town as
a city council member) and I have great.sympa-
thy for what may be facing you this next year. If
your deliberations involve your marina, though,
I would encourage you to be very thoughtful
about possible cuts and investments. Your mari-
na is one of the jewels of your city. Visiting boaters
will get their first (and last) impression your city
at your marina. Since boaters will typically spend
a fair amount of money when they stop, your
marina is a source not only of income directly
from the marina, but spending among your local
businesses, too. You have a special place. We
will be back.

Whynotbid it?
I was greatly surprised to find myself at least
partially agreeing with (Nassau County Clerk of
Court) John Crawford on the Burgess Boulevard
extension issue. Much of his late behavior has
seemed a bit disruptive, as if he was out to stir up
the pot However, I do have issues with the exten-
sion but for other reasons.
I do wonder about why this project was not let
to bid. I am less concerned about if the commis-
sioners were legally allowed to do so - I figure
they knew their standing before they acted. What
bothers me is that they would allow a large proj-
ect like this to not be bid. It seems to me you have.
no idea about the real cost until you solicit at
least three bids. This has been in the planning for
a while so it is the old commission that set this
scenario up. For shame!
But what really piques my interest is why the
extension is being built, especially now, with the
funds so cut back. I cannot understand how this


road is going to have more than a modicum of
effect on traffic. All it eliminates is some traffic
that might go down (SR) 200 to US 17. Now, I bet
most of the people that would use this extension
already come down William Burgess to Harts
Road and take Harts to 17. Ndt much different.
If they punch this road through to 17, so what?
You have a chance to go to Miner Road and then
you're stopped. Too many high-dollar homes past
that Better to concentrate on Pages Dairy (which
is slated to be extended through to Blackrock
already).
I would think this money would be far better
spent on the Chester Road intersection that backs
up three and four light changes in the evening.
There is already a problem there. Or even if the.
monies were kept to maintain current services.
Stop some cuts and the freeze on employment of
even replacement personnel.
Last, who will benefit from this road? Looks
like that will be the developer that owns the
adjoining property. I believe itwill then be zoned

Industrial). Yall feel like enriching a poor devel-
oper? If not, say so. Loudly.

Dty cleaning
This is my experience with area dry cleaners.
SOne Fernandina dry cleaner's heat stretched
the cuffs and part of the hem on a favorite
(although old and altered) Italian designer jack-
et The original cost was 8300; value now perhaps
$50. It was a standby. Their attitude - we did not
do it - the jacket has been altered and repaired.
Does an altered and.repaired jacket have no
value? The attempt for some compensation began
six months ago.

Holidaylghts
Visitors riding through North Ridge Lane this
year clearly have noticed some changes. The
beautiful arches over the street are gone and the
number of homes decorated have decreased. We
are truly sorry thatrthe arches are notion place this
year for all to enjoy. As time passes, the neigh-
borhood has changed, the number of able hands
to help raise and take down the arches have
decreased anid we are not as mobile as and just
a little bit older than we once were.
Last year there were just enough ofus to raise
the arches. Getting them down New Year's Day
was a different story. With only eight of us avail-
,able, all but two of the arches came crashing
down and broke into pieces. We were fortunate,
that no one was hurt and we all walked away
thinking that this annual ritual was becoming a
little too difficult.
S' Whilethearches ,ae gone this year, our spir-
its aire high and our lights are in place shining
.brightly. As neighbors, we do this every year for
you. Your friendly waves and your vocal wishes
to us for happy holidays give us in the Christmas
light neighborhood joy and happiness all year
long.
So our thanks to you.as you drive through this
year and enjoy our lights as you have in the past
To all of you, Happy Holidays from all of us who
decorate on North Ridge-Lane. '

Left leaning
Re: "Newspapers," Dec. 10.
The "Newspapers" writer saw fit to point out
the right-leaning bias of the Drudge Report while.
completely omitting note .of the extreme left-
leaning bias that permeates the majority of the
Newspapers, magazines and especially college
newspapers that one can access through
www.usnpl.corm.
The vast majority of newspapers, especially the
big national newspapers, along with the weekly
news magazines, have become so left-leaning to
the extreme that it can best be illustrated by AP
correspondent (not a reporter!) Liz Sidoti, who
believes the New Republic is a conservative pub-
lication. Wow.

Full moon rising over Amelia Island


One of the winter joys
of living in
Fernandina is watch-
ing the full moon ris-
ing over the Atlantic Ocean.
This year some friends and I
decided to really pay attention
to it, and I can't believe I
haven't done this sooner.
Early last Friday evening
three of us met for a happy-
hour beer at Sandy Bottoms
where our perches on warm
bar stools afforded a great
view of the ocean. At precise-
ly 5:25 p.m., we bundled up
and headed to the outdoor
patio to take in the show.
Other people joined us there.
Up and down Main Beach
more spectators, some with
cameras on tripods, others
with children in tow, also had
collected to watch the specta-
cle.
This particular winter full


moon rise coincided with the
setting sun at 5:26 p.m. on the
Other side of the island, with
I'm sure its own cluster of
awestruck sky watchers. But
our own show could not be
beat. The moon rose quickly
over a flat calm sea, growing
ever more orange in the sun-
set pink colored sky. As the
night got darker the moon got
brighter with every crater
detail there for the viewing.
Eventually we friends went
our separate ways but I was
not yet ready to head home.
Instead, I went moon watch-
ing. My first stop was the 14th
Street Bridge over Egans
Creek, where the moon, high-
er up in the sky by now, light-
ed the salt marsh grasses in a
silvery glow. Then, using my
ranger spousal privilege, I
entered Fort Cinch State Park
through the back gate, to see


what the ani-
mals were up
to by the
Slight of the
full moon.
Raccoons,
S it seems, rule
the park at
i h " ~ ' night. They
were every-
WILD where! One
WAYS group of rac-
coons
checked out
Pat the dump-
Foster- Turley sters at the
fort parking
lot. Another group patrolled
the parking area of Willow
Pond. Although I didn't drive
into the camping areas of the
park, I'm certain that rac-
coons were abundant there,
too, seeking human refuse to
feast upon. Here and there
along the way, other raccoons
seeking a more wild diet
crossed the road heading into
the woods or the neighboring
salt marsh.


It wasn't only raccoons
that were out and about on
this full moon evening. Out by
the sand dunes, a single buck
with a full rack of antlers
limped across the road in
front of me, most likely nurs-
ing wounds from a fight with
another buck during this rut-
ting time of year.
Near the fort, I parked my
car and walked to the beach
and looked across towards
Cumberland Island, too far-
away to see the wild horses
but I imagined them out
there, too, enjoying the moon-
light. Looking back towards
the fort, there was the moon,
rising above the ramparts,
illuminating history with an
ageless light.
It was still early, but time
now to head home and get
dinner going. As I drove
along the main road towards
the front gAte, I was accompa-
nied by the moon, shining to
my left between the trees. It
struck me then, how fragile

PAT FORSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER


this wonderful park is, how
thin the bank of trees
between me and the sand
dunes, and how much wildlife
still claims it.
All the way home, driving
along Fletcher Avenue, the
moon followed me, ever high-
er in the sky, and reflecting
off the, glimpses of the sea
still occasionally visible
between the houses. I vowed
to myself that, if I can help it,
I will never again take a
moonrise over the ocean for
granted - it's too special a
treasure, so rare, yet so acces-


sible to all of us that call
Amelia Island home.
If you want to see a winter
moonrise, mark your calen-
dars now for the next full
moon, Jan. 11 at 6:35 p.m. The
sunset that day will set at 5:44
p.m., so unlike this evening in
December, it will be dark
.when it rises above the sea.
I'll bet it's still a beautiful
sight. Come on out to Main
Beach and we can watch it

V MAY I HELP YOU



She's a true'servant leader


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
"She treats her customers
with the utmost respect and
courtesy. She is always pleas-
ant and she makes you feel
that she appreciates you for
giving the restaurant your
business. I feel that she is the
epitome of what excellent cus-
tomer service is," said the
individual who nominated
Selma Charles for this col-
umn.


Charles, general manager
at Chik-fil-A in Yulee, has also
earned high'praise from
owner/operator Lita S.
Fannin.
"Fortunately.for me, Selma
has been blessed in her past
to have had several outstand-
ing examples of great leaders
develop her into who she*is
today," said Fannin.
"But the one quality of a
great leader than can't be
taught is servant leadership.
Those who are the best lead-


In orderfor any business to flourish, we must
always remember to maintain a servant's
heart, without murmuring or complaining.'
SELMACHARLES
CHIK-FIL-AGENERAL MANAGER


ers of all serve those who are
beneath them. She exempli-
fies servant leadership in all
she does."
The U.S. Virgin Islands
native moved to the area from
Port Charlotte and has been
pursuing a management
career ,since 1998.
"It does not matter what
company you work for," said
Charles. "The discipline of
management, policies and
procedures all remain the
same."
"I one day Would like to be
entrusted with my own Chick-
fil-A store," said Charles, who
believes that "in order for any


business to flourish, we
must always remember to
maintain a servant's heart,
without murmuring or com-
plaining."
Charles endeavors to
model her personal philoso-
phy after that of Chik-fil-A
founder Truette Cathy, who
built the business with a
Depression-era work ethic
and a personal and business
philosophy based on biblical
principles.
The divorced mother of
two shares her home with son
David, 16, and daughter
Sheroya, 12.

WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 17.2008 NEWS News-Leader


Seniors remember:


There's no'free lunch'


TALLAHASSEE -Attorney
General Bill McCollum and
state Department of Elder
Affairs Secretary E. Douglas
Beach have issued a consumer
advisory urging senior citizens
and their loved ones to think
twice before taking advantage
of so-called financial plan-
ning seminars or estate preser-
vation workshops that use a
"free lunch" to lure seniors to
attend.
The Attofney General's
Office has received more than
a dozen complaints from sen-
iors enticed to attend a free
meal that actually turned out to
be a high-pressure sales pitch
for investments that may be
entirely inappropriate for the
individual based on his or her
age and financial circumstance.
"The last thing our seniors
need during this economic cli-
mate when their retirement
savings may be dwindling is
an investment scam that fur-
ther depletes that nest egg,"
said McCollum. 'Too many of
our seniors are finding that
these free meals cost them."
The invitations to the free
meal often arrive via phone or
mail and promise tips on earn-
ing great financial return with
minimal risk, eliminating taxes
or avoiding probate. After a
high-pressure presentation,
salespeople then try to sched-
ule follow-up visits in the


homes of those who attend so
they can continue the pitch. In
addition to losing money, con-
sumers who complained to the
Attorney General's Office
reported being badgered by
multiple unsolicited phone
calls and frustrated by mis-
representation of the seminar's
purpose.
"Florida's seniors spent
their lives hearing there's no
such thing as a free lunch, and
now some unscrupulous huck-
sters are trying to make them
think otherwise," said Beach.
"The safest approach for older
residents is to stick with tried-
and-true methods of retire-
ment planning."
AARP and the Financial
Industry Regulatory Authority
recommend that seniors do not
purchase anything or open an
account of any kind at a free-
meal seminar. Seniors should
ask the following questions:
* What are the risks of this.
investment?
* How much does it cost
initially to purchase the invest-
ment?
* What, if any, additional
or ongoing costs will I have to
pay?
* How liquid is this invest-
ment? If I need to sell or cash
in the investment, how readily
can I do so?
* Will my investment be
tied up? If so, for how long?

* What happens if I decide
to sell or cash in my invest-

For what type of investor is

If the speaker'can't or won't
answer questions to a con-
sumer's satisfaction, the invest-
ment is probably not the best
choice. AARP provides a
checklist on its website to

Arrest puts

porn figure

back in jail
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Chad Manning Spivey, one
of three men arrested in con-
nection with a 2006 child
pornography case, was arrested
last week for violating his pro-
bation for a conviction of child
abuse.
Spivey, 24, was sentenced to
three years of probation earlier
this year after he pleaded guilty
to child abuse. Prosecutors
decided to allow Spivey, the
youngest of the three suspects,
to plead guilty to one charge of
child abuse instead of the five
counts of possession of child
pornography with which he ini-
tially was charged.
According to a report of his
arrest, Spivey's probation vio-
lations include testing positive
for marijuana and charges of
driving with a suspended
license and failure to appear in
court on that charge.
Spivey was arrested in
August 2006 with David Mash-
burn, 47, and Walter Hanzek,
45. Both Mashburn and Hanzek
were sentenced to prison time;
Mashburn received 18 years
and Hanzek two years in a state
prison.
Spivey was arrested Dec. 8
for violating his probation and is
being held without bond at the
Nassau County Jail.

on Dec. 10. A neighbor told
detectives he'd seen a bicycle in
the front yard of the home at
least once, but said he had not
see anyone near the bicycle.
Police contacted the State
Attorney's Office to possibly
obtain a warrant for the indi-
vidual listed on the identifica-
tion card; the homeowner told
police he did not know the indi-
vidual and that the suspect did
not have permission to be on
the property.
Fire station theft
A $600 water softener was
stolen from the water pump
shed of a Nassau County
Volunteer Fire Station in
Nassauville last week.
The theft was reported Dec.
8 by J.T. Pickett, president of
the Nassau County Big Oak
Volunteer Fire Station. He told
police that some time during
the evening of Dec. 7 or the
early morning of Dec. 8,-some-
one entered the water pump
shed behind the fire station,
located at 941328 Old
Nassauville Road, and removed
the water softener, but took the
time to place caps on the water
lines to prevent damage to the
water pump.
There was no forced entry
to the shed, according to a
police report of the incident.
The theft is under investi-
gation; no arrests have been
made.

Cars burgled
Nassau County detectives


are investigating another out-
break of car burglaries in
Marsh Lakes.
Six vehicles were reported-
ly burglarized; most of the
reports were made late Friday
night, while a couple were not
reported until early Saturday
morning.
All of the vehicles had been
left unlocked, so the suspects
did not need to force entry into
the cars. All except one of the
burglarized vehicles. were
parked at homes on Marsh
Lakes Drive.
One man told police noth-
ing was taken from his pickup.
truck, but he could tell
someone had been inside, pos-
sibly looking for something to
take.
Credit cards, clothing, ten-
nis balls, a Nintendo Wii video
game system, an iPod, a cell
phone and a GPS system were
among the goods stolen from
the other vehicles.
It is the latest in a string of
burglaries in the area where
police say suspects apparently
walk through neighborhoods
at night simply looking for
unlocked vehicles.
The case is under investi-
gation; no arrests have been
made.

Crackdown


underway


onR DUI.- ' wa

The holiday season between
Thanksgiving and New Year's
is one of the deadliest and most
dangerous times on America's
roadways due to an increase in
drunk driving.
In an effort to get impaired
drivers off of the roads, the
Florida Highway Patrol is join-
ing with hundreds of other state
and local law enforcement and
highway safety officials across,
the nation to launch an aggres-
sive national campaign - "Drunk
Driving. Over the Limit. Under'
Arrest." - through Dec. 31.
According to the National
Highway .Traffic Safety
Administration, in December
2007 992 people were killed in
crashes nationwide that involved
a drunk driver with a blood alco-
hol concentration of 0.08 or
higher, which is above the legal.
limit in every state.
The Florida Highway Patrol
recommends designating a
sober driver and not letting
friends drive drunk as just two
simple steps to avoid a tragic
crash or an arrest for impaired
driving. Other important tips
include:
* Plan ahead: Whenever you
plan to consume alcohol, desig-
nate your sober driver before
going out'and give that person
your car keys.
* If you are impaired, call a
taxi, use mass transit or call a
friend or family member to get
you home safely.
* Promptly report drunk
drivers you see on the roadways
to law enforcement. Dlial FHP
(*347) from your cell phone to
contact 'the Florida Highway
Patrol.
For real time condition
reports as well as maps and
other safety tips, the public is
urged to use the Live Traffic
Crash service on the FHP Web
site at www.flhsmv.gov/fhp.
The Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles
encourages anyone with a valid
Florida driver license or identi-
fication card to go online to


www.flhsmv.gov and enter their
emergency contact information.
This vital information gives law
enforcement immediate access
to this information in cases of an
emergency, which makes it eas-
ier for them to contact a family
member or friend.

coach. "We keep them from getting
the shots they're looking for. Our
depth.wears people down.

much. Our average turnovers is 1115

school basketball team.."

Many Heisman voters


lacked integrity in 2008


' V university of Oklahoma QB
Sam Bradford became just
the second sophomore to
Swing the Heisman Trophy
Saturday night. He deserved it.
University of Florida QB Tim Tebow
finished third behind Bradford and
Texas QB Colt McCoy, which is an
Sall-out travesty if you consider how
he landed there. ,
Give all due respect to.Bradford
and McCoy because the issue is not
about who should have won the
Heisman. Bradford turned in.a magi-
cal season at the helm of the highest
scoring offense in the history of col-
lege football. McCoy would have
been a worthy winner as well, com-
pleting an astronomical 77.6 percent
of his passes in 2008.
But in an obvious effort to
ensure one of their boys took home
the trophy; 154 electors from the
Southwest, Midwest and Far West
decided to leave the East Coast guy,
Tim Tebow, off their Heisman bal-
lots-altogether. "Lack of integrity" is
the phrase that immediately comes
to mind. Either that or someone
needs to fork over a few more bucks
and subscribe to ESPN's Gameplan
package..
Mind you that 120 voters left
McCoy off their ballots and 93
snubbed Bradford, so there is bias
in every region. But to leave the
reigning Heisman Trophy winner,
who received the most first-place
votes this year with 309, completely
off your ballot is either blatant
"homerism" or sheer ignorance.
The positive for the Gator Nation
Is that Bradford will now be wined
and dined for the next few weeks
while Tebow is in Gainesville prepar-
ing for Florida's clash with
Oklahoma on Jan. 8. Not that the
Gators need any more motivation
than playing for a national title, but,
thanks to 154 Heisman voters,
they've got it anyway ...
Speaking of the BCS National
Championship, it was still unclear
Sunday as to whether former UF
offensive coordinator Dan Mullen,
who took over, the head post at
Mississippi State last week, would
call the plays in the big game. If I'm


Florida head coach
Urban Meyer
(which.would
require a gazillion
more dollars, a
severely decreased
Body Mass Index
and at least a dozen
bad commercial
appearances), I cut.
bait with Mullen
SPORTS and promote
SaPRT .S. receivers coach
TALK Billy Gonzales, at
least on an interim
JOHN L. basis.
CRAWFORD While Mullen
S- G.- has done a brilliant
job since opening
up the offense after an early loss to'
Mississippi, the coach shouldn't be
asked to perform double duty for
practically a month. Mississippi
State deserves their new coach's full
attention and Florida merits a cor-
dinator whose head is still firmlyv in
Gainestille as the Gators prepaid e for;
their second national ilde game in
three years. Besides, Gonzales
already serves as leyer's "red
zone" coordinator. Heading into the
Alabama game, the Gators lhad
scored 14 touchdowns in 59 trips
inside the 20-yard'line and added a
few more against the Crimson Tide.
Should Meyer decide to make the
move, it appears Florida's offense
would be in capable hands ...
Perhaps when all is said and
done, the fourth-down stand with
14:54 to go in the game produced by
Jacksonville against Green Bay
Sunday will be viewed as the turn-
around for a team that has seemed
to be snake-bitten for most of 2008.
The playoffs were negated two
Weeks ago, but playing spoiler a few
more times this season;could be just
what the Jaguars need to erase the
sour taste and head into 2009 with a
*little hope. A win over Indianapolis
Thursday might stave off the gloom
and doom for a team that has been
pressing to find a spark.

Lady Pirates beat Lady Hornets


BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Lady Pirates edged the
Lady Hornets Thursday when
the Yulee girls basketball team
paid Fernandina a visit.
"This was an exciting game.
Fernandina struggled with the
offense in the first half, putting
up just six points," said Mike
Landtroop, Fernandina Beach
High School girls basketball
coach. "The girls came out in
the second half and looked like
a new team.


"The defense was incredi-
ble. The crowd got behind their
defensive effort and, slowly but
surely, the points started falling.
We chipped away at the lead.
until about three minutes left
in the game. The girls' free-
throw shooting was crucial late
in the game and the girls
stepped up to the challenge and
knocked.them down."
Whitney Small led the Lady
.Pirates on the scoreboard with.
11 points. She also had five
steals and 10 rebounds. Julia
Belcher chippedin eight pointy


and had seven rebounds, four
steals and a block. Ebony
Peterson had 10 rebounds, an
assist and four steals to go
along with her five points.
"Overall, the Lady Pirates
continue their season with this.
never-quit attitude and pushed
through a slow start to an
incredible finish," Landtroop
said. "I am very proud of their
effort and determination."
The Lady Pirates (3-5) host-
ed Hilliard Saturday and travel
to Yulee (2-5) Thursday and'
Friday for the county tourney.


FBHS girls shut out Ribault 110


BETH JONES '
News-leader

Itwas a scoring bonanza for
the Fernandina Beach High
'School girls soccer team with
Thursday's 11-0 shutout of the.
Ribault Lady Trojans. Ten dif-
ferent Lady Pirates scored.
Jennifer Stelmach had a pair
of goals and FBHS got one
apiece from Lauren Moule,
Joanna Pagel, Ginny Vos, Hope
Swan, Casey Knight, Rachel
Gillespie, Melissa McGlory,
Sarah Head and Tara Whitaker.
Ashley Mooneyhan had a
pair of assists and Gillespie,
Ginny Vos, McGlory and
Mariah Vos had one each.
The Lady Pirates hosted
Bolles Monday and are at home
tonight with Paxon at 6 p.m.
* The Yulee High School
girls soccer team got its first
win in school history Dec. 9-


when the Lady Hornets trav-
eled to Baldwin.
"The girls played hard and'
consistently worked together,"
said Meredith Harris, Yulee
High School girls soccer coach:
"Baldwin played well and was
definitely playing to win down
to the last seconds-of the game,
but with a goal from Caitlin
Lussier in the first half, we were
.able to hold on to the lead and,
finish victoriously."
The Lady Hornets netted
another win,,to push their-
record to 24-1 after Ribault had
to forfeit Dec. 10.
"We traveled to Ribault, but
due to miscommunication, they
had to forfeit," Harris said. "We
hope to have a chance to play
them towards the end of the
season."
The Lady Hornets played in
their final home game Dec. 8
when they hosted WestNassau.


"My keeper was sick and
my backup keeper was hurt,
so at the last minute, I had to
throw in one of my players that
had never played keeper,
Taylor Austin," Harris said.
S"She did a fantasticjob and the
team was very proud of her
efforts. With Taylor's 23 saves.
Sand our first goal of the season
by Natalie Watt, we were able to
stay. and:finish the game.,
'"It is great to see my girls
evolve into better athletes and
work: together as a team. We
have'a low number of girls on
the.team so, even at best, with
everyone healthy, we only have
three subs to rotate in and out.
In spite of these odds against
, established programs, my play-
ers give their best effort every
game and are improving."'
S Yulee traveled to Andrew
Jackson Monday and plays at
Lee Thursday.

WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 17, 2008 SPORTS News-Leader


Golf lessons paying off for Jarzyna


Wednesday was a beautiful
day to be on the golf course
for the 72 players who came
out to participate in the blitz.
The winning scores, especial-
ly teamwise, would seem to
verify this. Tony Jarzyna, who
credits his newfound game to
lessons, took top individual
honors with an 82 and plus 9
points. Bob Brewer (80) and
Jack Harrison (86) shared
second and third places at
plus 8.
With Jarzyna (plus 9) and
Brewer (plus 8) on the same
team, the all-plus team that
included Ron Dandurand (84,
plus 5) and Larry Griner (97,
plus 1) was an easy winner at
plus 23.
Second place went to a
team with no minuses as Jim
Dunphy (85; plus 6), Tommy
Shave, who shot his age (71,
plus 6), Dick Peterson (95,
plus 3) and Tom Roberts (81,
even) finished at plus 15.
In a close third place at
plus 14 was the team of
Harrison (plus 8), Ron
Therriault (87, plus 6), Al-
Jump (92, plus 1) and Walter
Boyd (90, minus 1).
.Another all-plus team of Al
Rio (84, plus 4), Michael
Kaufman (88, plus 3), Don
Stipcak (73, plus 3) and Price
Poole (74, plus 2) placed
fourth at plus 12.
Friday saw a change in the
weather as the wind blew and
the temperatures dropped
with a relatively small turnout
of 41 players taking part in
the blitz. Jarzyna's lesson con-
tinued to pay off for him as he
took individual honors with
an 85 and plus 7 but didn't get
him onto a winning team.
Three players, Lew Akins
(82),.Rusty Acree (96) and
Stan Miller (90), shared sec-
ond and third at plus 5.
With the smaller turnout,
the field was divided into 13
three-man teams and two
four-man teams. Acree's plus
5 got help from Jack Harrison
(89, plus 3) and, with D.D.
Miller (98) finishing even, the
team took first place at plus 8.
There was a tie for second-
and third at plus 5 involving
the four-man team of Doug
Wolfe (85, plus 4), Larry
Hutchison (86, plus 3), Jack
Croake (84, even), M.
Hendricks (78, minus 2) and
S. Miller (plus 5), Bob Dorsey
(86, even), Dennis Sassenger
(85, even). Fourth place at
plus 4 went to Akins (plus:5),
D. Tucker (104; even) and
Michael Kaufman (92, minus
1).

Aim or alignment?


A Most every golf
School or lesson that
I teach the issue of
. aim and alignment
come up. For most golfers
how to aim is a very confus-
ing proposition. Why, they
don't hit shots that have a
predictable flight pattern. It's
very hard to aim when you
don't know where it's going.
The only reason for a golf
swing is to bring the club into
the back of the ball with the
face square, traveling from
inside to straight through,
and hitting level to the
ground. How this is done is of
no significance as long as the
method is repeatable.
The goal for all golfers is
to have their swing become
consistent. This is defined by
shots that go where they want
them to go, ball control. We
all.marvel at the pros hitting
shot after shot that seem to
fly exactly the same.
Alignment consists of your
eyes, shoulders, hips, knees
and feet aligned in the same
direction.
How we hold the club, set
up to the ball and swing the
club determines our impact


conditions,
thus control-
ling our ball
flight. Your
golf ball is
2% the teacher
extraordi-
naire for two
reasons.
One, it never
UICK lies or mis-
leads. It tells
GOLF you straight-
TIP away on
TIPS I every shot
ED BOWE what your
' club was
doing. Two,
the messages are visual. We
see the direction the ball
starts out; we see its degree
of sideways curve. We see its
upward-downward trajectory
and distance it travels,,
For long-term improve-
ment, golfers must under-
stand ball flight and what
influence their swing has to
cause those shots. So work
on your swing so that it pro-
duces a repeatable shot and
them learn to aim to it.

S One of those awkward shots that can
S really be mastered with a bit of prac-
Stice is when your shot lies up against
a tree and you can rot take your nor-
mal stance. As you may expect, you
will need to tum your body around
and do the opposite of what you nor-
mally do. You want to use irons with the biggest
faces (wedge or 9-iron) and flip it over to match your
flipped stance. As you prepare to make.your swing,
the first piece of advice is to not take a full swing. A
short backswing will eliminate any errors since you
are not'used to swinging the club this way (back-
wards). You also want to abbreviate the follow-
through, trying to keep your right arm straight (nor-
mally, you want to keep your left arm straight). Try
this technique out a few times and you should be
able to get a good grasp of it fairly quickly.


John Daly smashed a spectator's camera into a tree while shooting a 6-over 78 in the
first round of the Australian Open last Thursday. After pushing his tee shot wide on his __
final hole of the day, Daly walked into a clump of trees, where spectator Brad Clegg tried
to take a picture at close range. Daly snatched the camera and smashed it against the near- \,--_
est tree, telling the man, "You want it back, I'll buy you a new one." He later released a state-
ment via tournament organizers saying Clegg got too close. "I was looking to take a drop and a
camera was 6 inches away from my face," Daly said in the brief statement "My eyes are still buying from the
flash of the camera." Without saying another word, Daly took his penalty drop, finished the hole with a bogey
and stormed off the course immediately after signing his card. Asked if he would seek compensation, Clegg
told the Australian Associated Press: "I don't think I'll be chasing him for the money. He's a big bloke!"

Winter



creek



fishing

Variety of both salt
and freshwater
game fish can be
found in area tidal
creeks during the upcoming
months of winter. While small
tidal creeks offer a variety of
forage foods, including
shrimp, crabs and small bait-
fish, game fish also find the
safety and the warm creek
waters a sensible reason for
escaping the cold open waters
of winter.
Fishermen can also escape
the cold
northeast
winds that
normally
arrive on a
regular basis
during the
winter fish-
ing season.
Creek fish-
OUTDOORS ing offers
protection
from the
Tery Lacoss winds and
cold but a better reason to
fish the creeks is the fishing
is often very predictable.
'Several area creeks offer
easy access by numerous
boat ramps. Some of the more
productive creeks where boat
ramps are close by include
the Little St. Maryg River,
Lofton and Boggy creeks.
Winter fishing from these
boat ramps often produces a
mixed bag of game fish,
including largemouth bass,
stripes, bream, catfish, sea
trout, redfish and even the
occasional snook.
Tides are extremely criti-
cal to your fishing success.
The best time to target these
brackish creeks is the last few
hours of the falling and the
first few hours of the incom-
ing tides. During warm spells,
the last of the incoming and
the first of the falling tide can
also produce excellent creek
fishing.
Obviously a major key to-
your fishing success when
targeting small tidal creeks is
being able to fish with a lure
that will attract strikes from a
variety of these game fish
species.
During a past fishing trip
to the sweet waters of Lofton
Creek, our fishing party had
launched our boat at the
Lofton Creek public boat
ramp, which is located on AIA
north and approximately five
miles west of the Shave
bridge. Beware of the first
mile or so, navigating south
as during the high tide peri-
ods, fallen trees lurk just
under the surface of the river.
I would recommend staying
in the main channel and keep-
ing your boat speed under
five miles per hour for the
first mile of winding tidal
creek.
I also recommend slowing
down to an idle where boat
docks are located on the
creek. Most of the homes
have bulkheads, however

Henry Atkins, top, boated this creek bass while working a plastic tail rigged to a led head jig in Lofton Creek. Most creek bass average from 1-3
pounds. Small boats, right, are ideal for fishing Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia tidal creeks. During the winter fishing season, redfish,
left, move into tidal creeks for both forage foods and a warm winter home.


large wakes can damage their
boats and floating docks.
Once we were up on plane
and running, we navigated
past the power lines, which
generally signifies that you
have entered the area of
Lofton Creek where the water
turns brackish, also referred
to as "sweet water." Although
the fishing is good here, we
kept running past the Lofton
Creek airport and a second
creek development of homes
located on the west shoreline.
Ahalf mile further down
the creek, several small feed-
ers emptied into the main


creek from vast expanses of
the marsh. With the tide
falling and lots of water emp-
tying from the marsh, we
began casting Berkley gulp
shrimp in the "new penny"
color pattern as far back into
the creek mouths as possible.
The artificial shrimp were
rigged to 1/8-ounce led head
jigs that helped the fish
attracting plastic baits get
down into the water column.
Our first creek mouth pro-
duced a pair of largemouth
bass weighing to three
pounds, while a second creek
mouth offered a four-pound


redfish that was dressed in
deep red for the holiday sea-
son.
Between creek mouths we
worked the deeper edges of
the creek and began catching
sea trout to three pounds.
In an area of Lofton Creek
where there is a 20-foot hole
and a deep turn in the river, a
five-pound striper crashed a
gold "Bagley Bomber" min-
now. Sweet water fishing just
doesn't get any better than
this.
While Lofton Creek is my
personal favorite sweet water
tidal creek, there are numer-


ous other tidal creeks that
offer the same results and for
a wide variety of both. salt and
fresh water game fish.
Right.now there are
reports of both redfish and
stripers running at the 1-95
bridge at the St. Marys River.
A few miles west of the 1-95
bridge, the Little St. Marys
River joins the big St. Marys
River and offers a variety of.
both fresh andsaltwater
species. Fishermen can
launch a small boat at the
Highway 17 bridge, while it's
only a mile run upstream to
the Little St Marys River.


Boggy Creek also offers
excellent sweet water fishing
where small boats can be
launched at the Nassau
Landing on Boggy Creek.
Some of the best sweet water
fishing on Boggy Creek
comes where Boggy Creek
intersects with Thomas
Creek.
Fishermen will need a
fresh and saltwater fishing
license when fishing the
sweet water areas of these
local tidal creeks. Fishermen ,
fishing in the St. Marys River
will need either a Florida or
Georgia fishing license.

Woody's BarBQ manager Brent Morris, left,
and employee Judy Brewton are holding a toy
drive to benefit families aided by the Micah's
Place domestic violence center. Customers
select a tree ornament with a child's age and
holiday gift wish. Woody's also has placed a
donation canister at the register to help
domestic violence victims get back on their
feet, a cause close to Brewton's heart. She
overcame very difficult times but with the
help of Woody's, she survived and even paid
for her children's weddings recently.
"Woody's was my safe haven when I had
nothing else. That's why I stay here. They are
always backing me 180 percent." If you or
someone you know needs help, call Micah's

The Blood Alliance is a non-profit
community bloodbank Our pur-
pose is to ensure that our commu-
nity has an ample supply of blood,
sufficient to meet the needs of
local patients. To fulfill these
needs, we currently have ten com-
munity donor centers, and nine
mobile units designed to support
blood drives at businesses,
churches, schools, civic groups;
military, and community loca-
tions. However, we are the sole
provider of transfusable blood
products to all local hospitals in
northeast Florida, and portions of
Georgia and South Carolina so
we are always in need of dona-
tions to keep these hospitals
stocked.
