Judge: County erred on Crane Island


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
A Nassau County Circuit Court
judge has ruled that the county vio-
lated the law in approving a planned
unit development on Crane Island.
A group of citizens had sued the
county after the commission voted
in 2006 to create a planned unit
development on the island, which is
designated as conservation wet-
lands in the county's comprehen-


sive plan.
The Amelia Island Co., on behalf
of a developer attempting to build
on Crane Island, had lobbied the
county to amend its comprehensive
plan and change the island's desig-
nation. The conservation designa-
tion allows for only one dwelling
every five acres - a maximum of
49 potential houses on the disputed
property.
The county commission voted
in 2006 to change the designation of


part of the island from conserva-
tion to residential - a move that
would have allowed up to 169 hous-
es on the property.
The lawsuit, brought by Nassau
County residents Eric Titcomb,
Robert Weintraub and Julie
Ferriera, alleged that the county
did not have the authority to amend
the comprehensive plan in that way.
Judge Brian J. Davis' Dec. 22
ruling agreed with that position,
and vacated the county's order


approving the PUD.
Commissioner Mike Boyle
pointed out that the current com-
mission came into office in the
midst of the controversy. "None of
the. sitting commissioners now
played any role in reaching the point
of litigation that we found ourselves
in," he said. "I have mixed emotions
about it. There's obviously merit to
(Davis') decision, but I'm also con-

ignored the state to

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Nassau County Fourth Circuit
Court has dismissed a lavisuit that
tried to force the county to rescind
approval of a planned unit develop-
ment in the Marsh Lakes community.
Judge Brian J. Davis dismissed the
suit with prejudice, meaning it cannot
be refiled unless his decision is over-
turned on appeal.
The development, planned by
Marsh Lakes Investors, LLC, would
be a commercial center perhaps
including a liquor store.
East Nassau Homeowners' Council
President Robert Weintraub said the
Marsh Lakes dispute was part of a
broader issue regarding traffic con-
currency on A1A. "There are about
five or six planned unit developments
that predate the 1991 comprehensive
plan. Those are planned unit develop-
ments that were approved in the mid-
to late '80s," he said.
If they are developed as planned,
"you could add 30,000 trips per day
on A1A between US 17 and the Shave
Bridge. This section is already in fail-
lire. We'objected to approving all these
until the county solves the problem
by building new roads."
Weintraub and others formed the
Greater Nassau Association for Traffic
Safety, a non-profit group, to file the
suit against the county. "The Marsh
Lakes strip mall became a test case,"
said Weintraub, who lives in the Marsh
Lakes community just west of the
Shave Bridge. "A1A cannot be
widened at this point because there's
no room. Therefore it creates a sig-
nificant safety problem when this strip
mall goes up."
The county commission's position,
however, was that development
approvals issued before the inception
of the comprehensive plan must be
honored. 'The county approved a final
site plan. Several months ago the prop-
erty owner came and said, 'OK, I'm
ready to build in my commercial
strip,'" said County Attorney David A.
Hallman. "Some residents of Marsh
Lakes came forward and said, 'We
don't want this commercial center in
our neighborhood.' The board looked
at the PUD and said, 'Wait a minute,
this was approved. We can't just tell the
property owner we've changed our
minds.' ... They took the county to
court, and the judge heard arguments
from the county on our motion to dis-
miss with prejudice, saying essential-
ly that the time to protest this was
when the PUD was approved 20 years
ago."
"We said the concurrency laws
adopted in the '90s had a hearing on
this case. The judge disagreed with
us," Weintraub said. "So that opened
the door to all these developments
that you haven't seen yet - but they're

'Godsent Macayla to
STEPHANIE PEMBER I
For the News-Leader .


'When David and Christi King decided to
adopt Macayla, they knew that their whole
world was about to change - not because they
were simply adding a new member to their
family. Because the little girl they chose to
adopt was born with Treacher Collins syn-
drome, a condition affecting an estimated one
in 10,000 births according to the Children's
Craniofacial Association.
This basically means that Macayla was
born with only about half of the bones in her
face. ,
At the time, David's wife Christi was a nurse
in the delivery room when Macayla was born.
When it became obvious that she would be
placed up for adoption, the Hilliard couple
never gave it a second thought.
"As a result of prayer, there was a total
peace about adopting her," said David. "There
was never any doubt, no matter what the med-
ical needs were."
The doctors were not even sure of her long-
term prognosis because the syndrome was so
rare.*
"They said she would be borderline retard-
ed at best," recalls David.
Today, at age 12, Macayla has overcome
the odds to become a straight-A student.
However, because of her health issues, her
immune system is not strong enough to allow
her to attend public school; therefore, she
receives her schooling at home. Kathy Tomco,
a teacher at Callahan Middle School, comes out
to Macayla's house and tutors her for five
,hours each week.
But she has never let her facial disfigure-
ment slow her down.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City staff will bebusy this week
preparing packets for local law firm
. Jacobs, Scholz & Associates to bring
to Washington, D.C., in January seek-
ing federal funds for rehabilitation of
the downtown post .office, airport
. improvements.and a new downtown
library, among other projects.
The city hopes to take advantage of
President-elect Barack Obama's eco-
nomic stimulus plan, among others,
to provide billions of dollars in relief
funds for areas that have been hardest
hit by the housing crisis. According to
some of the latest reports, Florida,
Nevada and Arizona have the top three
highest foreclosure rates in the nation.
In a letter to staff dated Dec. 22,
City Manager Michael Czrmbor
detailed the preparation process for
city staff's project packets. He also
asked staff to have
their packets ready
by Friday so they
can be handed over
to Jacobs &
Associates by
Monday:
"Our lobbyists.
will be traveling to
Washington, D.C., in Czymbor
January," wrote
Czymbor, "to meet
with legislators and various federal
Agency representatives to discuss
potential funding for our identified
commtnnity needs. (Jacobs) will be
meeting with these individuals to dis-
cuss our needs and provide them with
a prepackaged proposal of each of the
projects that we are attempting to
secure funding for."
Despite a fair amount of contro-
versy, the Jacobs law firm was recent-
lyhired by both the city of Fernandina
Beach and Nassau County for state
and federal lobbying services.
Both the city and county had to
contend with disputes over whether
the lobbying was considered a legal
service, and whether the services
should be subject to a bidding process.
The lobbying project was also origi-
nally supposed to be a single inter-.
local agreement between the city and
the county to obtain state and federal
funds for major projects.
Nassau County commissioners
agreed in early December to initially
hire Jacobs on a month-to-month basis
for $6,249 a month, not to exceed fodr
months, to keep costs under $25,000.
City commissioners, however, agreed
to a two-year contract for the lobbying
services at a cost of $150,000, plus
expenses. .
Jacobs said he will be.. in
Washington the entire week of the
presidential inauguration, working
with people in various branches of
government who are involved in the

Dorothy Dosher Hardee
Dorothy Dosher Hardee died December
28, 2008, in Southport, N.C., in the house
her father had begun in the 1920s and that
she and her husband completed and lived
in most of their lives.
Her parents were Harry Lee and Alta
Wescott Dosher of Southport, N.C. Dorothy
lived a long and abundant life. She cele-
brated her 93rd birthday among family and
friends on Nov. 18. She was the widow of
Lewis J. Hardee, a prominent seafood deal-
er, shrimp boat owner and former presi-
dent of the Security Savings Bank. '
Dorothy was a spunky young lady. Once,
when playing follow the leader, she and
her friend Leverne Rehder jumped from
the frightening height of the crows' nest of
a menhaden boat into the Cape Fear. T'he
others were chicken!" she declared. She
swam in the river, played on the Southport
High School basketball team, played tennis
down at the court on the Garrison, and
rode horses in the pine woods near town in
proper riding boots and flared, tan gabar-
dine britches. Later she water-skied, com-
peted in king mackerel tournaments and
won golf trophies. She painted and. won
prizes for dressmaking.
She was active in church activities and
civic affairs. At the time of her demise she
was the oldest continuous member of the
Southport Baptist Church. Like her hus-
band, she was musical. She played the
piano, was an organist in the Baptist Church
and sang in the choir. For a time she stud-
ied piano seriously with Mary Mintz.
A lifetime member and former presi-
dent of the Southport Woman's Club, she
was also was the founding president of the
Southport Garden Club, which was formed
in her living room.t She rworkedon ;Mrs.
Margaret Taylor Harper'scampaign for Lt.
Governor of the state. She was one of the
original "tree-huggers." When Southport
was felling the great oaks that lined Howe
Street to accommodate paving,, she and
other club friends chained themselves to a
huge tree at Howe and Owens streets, but
to no avail.
She was well traveled, once crossing
the United States in a car with her husband
and friends, and more than: once traveling
throughout New England with friends. She
made trips to Europe and England. . -
The Hardees were a closely knit, lov-
ing family. Lewis called his wife
"Sweetheart," which is why as a child, his
children picked up the name, and why half
the family, neighbors and friends called her
that. .
She.is survived by three sons,'Lewis J.
Hardee, Jr. of New York; Mikael, A. and
Genie Johnson Hardee of Cocoa; and
Donald Lee and Vickie White Hardee of
Myrtle Beach. Her grandchildren are: Lori
M. Hardee Moates, Kimberly D. Hardee

WEEKLY UPDATE


Help quitting
One of the most broken
New Year's Resolutions is the
resolve to quit tobacco. If this
is in your list of things to do in
the New Year, Nassau County
Health Department Tobacco
Cessation Counselor Jennifer
Emmons can help you.
All over Nassau County
people have been quitting with
Emmons' help. The QUIT-
LINE (877-U-CAN-NOW) and
their free nicotine replace-
ment therapy (patches,
lozenges and gum) and cessa-
tion groups greatly increase
your chances of quitting.
When a person tries to quit
tobacco alone, their success
rate is only about 5 percent.
Using nicotine replacement
therapy and having group sup-
port increases this number to
30 percent on the first try.
You do not have to be
tobacco free to join a group.
As a matter offact, most peo-
ple are continuing to smoke or
use spit tobacco when they
join the group. Setting a quit
date and working up to that
date is part of the cessation
program.
By quitting, you will also
decrease the amount of sec-
ondhand smoke you put into
the environment.
For information about
classes in 2009, call Emmons
at 548-1867.
Libraries closed
Nassau County Libraries
will be closed Jan. 1. The book
drops will remain open and no
fines will be assessed.

City queues up


for federal cash


The ballyhooed economic
stimulus package proposed
by the Obama administration
may be coming to a theater
near you.
The stimulus plan is esti-
mated to reach $850 billion
in scale and stretch over two
years. It is intended to deliv-
er much-needed federal
funds directly to starving
states. The states are to
quickly funnel the money to
municipalities and agencies
- for immediate use on proj-
ects entailing new roads,
bridges and other infrastruc-
ture.
Some -
enterpris-
ing local
officials
and busi-
nessmen
have their
minds
working
and their STEVE'S
hands out. KET
They hope : PLACE
to receive
some of ***
the funds Steve Nicklas
through a
well-conceived plan that
could begin almost immedi-
ately.
The funds would be used
to refurbish the old post
office in downtown .
Fernandina Beach, as well as
put the luster on a perform-
ing arts theater and bring a
new library to life. All three
projects are related in sever-
al ways.
The main relationship is
that each is a hopeful recipi-
ent of the federal or state
funds. Some of the expected
tenants of theObama stimu-
lus plan are to rebuild lag-
ging infrastructure and to
improve libraries and the-
aters and schools.
An announcement is
expected in the near future
about ain fJorit by the I

building (for the lofty
sum of $1) on Centre
Street.
The august structure
would continue to house the
U.S. post office on the -
ground floor, with the city
hall and offices above. The'
stately courtroom in the
building would be used as
the new city commission-
chambers.
I in addition, the city may
'acquire the old First Baptist
Church pi6operty in sort of a
land swap. Some of the
church building would be
leveled to make room on the
property for a new public

library. The pews and pulpit
and the main sanctuary of
the church would be resur-
rected into a 450-seat theater
for the performing arts.
'These are not bridges to
nowhere," says Clinch
Kavanaugh, one of the chief
architects and supporters of
the plan.
The grand, three-legged
scheme does come with a
potential $10 million price
tag. However, some of the
costs could be offset by fed-
eral funds and grants. The
city could also sell its exist-
ing city hall site on Ash
Street as well as other valu-
able parcels of land to raise
funds.
A key and timely feature
of the plan is the announce-
ment of the Obama adminis-
tration's initiative to refuel
the economy and create jobs
and economic prosperity.
The typical outlets for munic-
ipalities to raise funds are
currently limited by the
financial meltdown ravaging
the U.S.
This is where the federal
funds would come in aid be
used. The church sanctuary
would cost about $1 million
to refurbish and outfit with a
suitable sound system.
A 24,000-square-foot
library would cost about
$5 million, and would be
three times larger than the
existing one. The post office
project could exceed .3 mil-
.lin.
Grants, donations and tax
credits - and the coveted
federal funds - will be pur-
sued tirelessly by local offi-
cials to defray some of the
costs. Kavanaugh says the
city should be ready, willing
and able to receive the feder-
al funds.
"When they're handing
out money, you want to be
the first in line - and be pre-
pared," says Kavanaugh, an
attorney who has seen this
movie before.

WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 31, 2008 NEWS News-Leader


SUBMITTED PHOTO
Bob Weintraub, left, and Eric Titcomb, right, two Crane
Island lawsuit plaintiffs, with their attorney Ralf Brookes
of Cape Coral, outside the Nassau County Courthouse.


CRANE Continued from 1A
cerned that a small group of
individuals who have no direct
ownership of a piece of land can
influence its ultimate use.... It
was a complicated issue, despite
how some people would prefer
to paint it as a very simple, black
and white issue."
Weintraub said the plaintiffs'
victory is just the most recent
chapter in a long history of ten-
sion over the island. "In 1991,
when the state required coun-
ties to have comprehensive
plans, Nassau County's first
attempt at a .comprehensive
plan was rejected because
Crane Island and other envi-
Sronmentally sensitive areas
were not protected," he said.
"Between '91 and '93, the own-
ers of Crane Island were argu-
ing that Crane Island should
not be included in this desig-
nation and they lost. ... From
1993 to 2003 there were three
efforts to change the compre-
hensive plan. Each time, the
state Department of
Community Affairs rejected it."
When the Amelia Island Co.
decided to press for the
approval of a PUD, then-county
attorney Mike Mullin met with
DCA officials to ask if an
obscure clause in the county's
comprehensive plan would
allow the plan to be "self-amend-
ing." DCA said it would not, but
Mullin issued a contrary legal
opinion upon which the com-
mission proceeded. "The coun-
ty ... ignored the state of Florida
Department of Community
Affairs and utilized the policy
to approve 169 units on Crane
Island without amending the
Future Land Use Map designa-
tion for Crane Island," Davis
wrote in his ruling.
Weintraub said he hoped the

the county not to appeal the
decision," he said. "I'm sure the
county commission will hold an
executive session in the very
near future to discuss this....


We're hoping to convince at
least three commissioners to
say, 'No, we lost, let's not pursue
this."'
Boyle said no decision had
been made on whether to
appeal the ruling. "I'm sure we
will consider all aspects of the
case before making an informed
decision. That said, the devel-
opers still have the right to
appeal." Boyle said the Amelia
Island Co.'s status as an inter-
vener in the case gives the com-
pany standing to contest the rul-
ing.
He also stressed that the
court's decision doesn't take
development off the table -just
limits its scope. "We shouldn't
lose sight ofthe fact that, even
with the judge's ruling, Crane
Island is still going to be devel-
oped - it'll just be developed at
49 (dwellings) instead of 169,"
he said.
Weintraub, however, said
efforts would be made to take
Crane Island out of develop-
ment permanently. "What we
are going to do now is try to
get Florida Forever or some
other source of funding to
obtain Crane Island for the state
and take it out of the hands of
private owners forever," he said.
"Our goal now is to try to get it
set aside for public land."
He added that he hoped the
county commission would see
conservation as the will of the
people. '"The county has the
ability to conserve land. The
commissioners just need the
incentive to do so," he said. "..
We think that this sends a mes-
sage to the commissioners that
the people don't want Crane
Island developed. The public
has already donated over
$20,000 to this case, to the legal
fees. That shows a tremendous
amount of support in the com-
ti ' I � .

mission that they have to pay

final stimulus package. The
federal government, he said,
will be offering both direct
money grants and federal bond
issues for "shovel-ready" city
and county projects, which
have yet to be chosen.
Jacobs, who previously lob-
bied in Washington for down-
town restoration funds and
the federal beach renourish-
ment project, said there is
"great electricity" in
Washington about the new
president's plans. He said he is
looking forward to the lobby-
ing endeavor, which he
described as "a very dynamic
process, because it moves
around a lot."
'Czymbor asked in his letter
that each project-description
package contain a cover page,


title, brief description of the
project, the benefits of the proj-
ect, cost, the number of jobs
the project will create, the
importance of the project to
.the greater community, and
backup materials such as
maps, studies, drawings or
construction plans.
Obama's stimulus package,
which he announced in early
December, involves the cre-
ation of millions of jobs
through federal investment in
the nation's infrastructure,
including roads, bridges,
schools, "green" projects and
information technology. The
package, which is still in the
planning stages, may also offer
tax relief for middle- and low-
income workers, and the pos-
sibility of grants for mass-tran-
sit projects. Critics of the plan
say it will end up costing more

MACAYLA Continued from 1A
"Don't let anything stop you
from what you want to do,"
said Macayla, eyes beaming
and a smile stretching as far
as it could across her face.
Macayla said that she does
Snot wish she were different.
"I like the way I am."
David explained that
Macayla has had to endure
about a dozen surgeries since
she was born, and has at least
three-to-four times that many
to go. Yet through all of life's
fears and uncertainties, the
Kings' faith in Christ has been
the foundation of their
strength.
But it has not been easy.
David explained how two
years ago during Valentine's
week, Macayla was hospital-
ized after she developed bac-`
terial meningitis. Emergency
room doctors were shocked
when they tested her spinal
fluid and found that she had
over 27,000 white blood cells in
it (there shouldn't be more
than 100). Usually this (high

developed an extreme case of
Bell's palsy (temporary paral-
ysis of facial muscle) on the
right side of her face and doc-
tors said she would never fully.
recover. Yet David said that
when they explained to
Macayla that her smile would
never be the same, she simply
said, "Well, I will just have to
have a tear-drop smile," and
then she just laughed.
David is convinced Macayla
was sent into their lives for a
reason. "I realize she was sent
to put me back on track with
God where I should have been.
She's made me a better per-
son," he said.
David recalled another time
during that same year when
they had a complete DNA map-
ping of Macayla's blood; it was
discovered that she had lupus
and connective tissue disease
(not a result of TCS).
"Once again I was devas-
tated, and sadly I became
angrier at God and the world in
general," said David. He could-
n't understand how such a
wonderful little child could
have -such seri,:,u-s problems.
He c..-1i,.lmil, >:] -J and ques-
tioned God for allowing this to
happen.
One evening when David
was driving home from work,
he said itwas as if God showed
up in the car with him, bigger
than life itself. It was then that


he began to not only come to
terms with Macayla's illnesses,
but he also began to under-
stand why these things
were happening and for no
apparent reason. He related
the experience to when a par-
ent 'has to sit their child
down and explain something to
them when they are very
young.
"I realized then that the rea-
son Macayla's adoption hap-
pened so fast and the reason
that she has had to endure so
many unpredictable illnesses
and handle them with wisdom.
and grace that I have yet been
able to fully understand, was
because God sent her into my
life at a time when I so des-
perately needed Him. God sent
Macayla to me to put me back
on the road to Him; a road I
had gotten off of by my choos-
ing."
. He said that Macayla put
his life back into perspective
and he has never been the
same since.
That evening when he got
home, he explained his expe-
rience tc ChrisLi and Macayla.
-'Thr strangest thing hap-:
pened," said David. "For years
whenever you looked into
Macayla's eyes it was as if you
were looking into the eyes of a
very wise and experienced per-
son. To this day I can't fully
describe it, but when I looked


into Macayla's eyes this time,
it was as if she said, 'It's about
time, Dad. Now I can be a child
again.' Itwas as if she was say-
ing 'I have accomplished what
I came here to do."'
Wanda Harrell, a friend of
the family for close to 20 years,
describes the Kings as selfless,
wonderful people.
"If I could be like anyone
else, it would be them," she
said.; "Macayla is blessed to
have David and Christi as par-
ents, but she also blesses them
as well. It's a match made in
heaven."
Wanda explained how the
Kings have touched her life
personally.
"You can't be around people
like .the Kings and not be
inspired or changed. They
have taught me the true mean-
ing of love, and just to live
every day being thankful."
David explained that
Macayla is truly his hero.
'To be able to go through
what she, does every day
without complaining or using it
as an excuse is aninspiration
tp me. It's how we should al
live , . ...'.... .. 0- , ..,.....-;
He said that what she has.
taught him in the end is that it
is not how much you've been
given, but how much you give
to others. "This does not mean
materially, but rather of your-
self," he said. "She has also
taught me that no matter how
bad you may think you have it
in life, there is always some-
one who has it worse."

Please help
We need the help of the community!
My sister, Sara Robertson, who, lives in
Nassau County, was found Dec. 3 in her home
with eight dogs and two cats and had a massive
stroke four to six days prior. She is in critical
condition. Her pets, most that had been rescued,
were taken to the Nassau County Animal
Services.
Sara founded a no-kill rescue organization in
Palm Beach many years ago and has devoted
most of her life taking in dogs and cats trying to
find permanent homes for them. Plus the tremen-
dous expense out of her pocket for food and vet
bills over the years.
With the heroic and loving help of a friend,
Anne Santora, most all the animals have been
placed except for three great rescue dogs:
Sally, an older female beagle mix, 26 pounds,
who has a very sweet disposition and is great with
kids; Misty, a female black lab mix approximately
five years old; and Ruckus, a male black lab
mix approximately eight years old. All three are
in very good health and immediately need homes!
By writing a letter I'm praying that three lov-
ing families can open their hearts to them and pro-
vide a home as Sara has done most of her life for
hundreds of animals. Please contact Susan Davis
Perry, outreach manager, at 491-7440 at the shel-
ter.

A treatise on morality
I have recently found myself taken aback by
the letters and opinions of the general populace
of our county in. regards to the "Gay/Straight
Alliance Club." The letter that was the tipping
point, however, was titled "A moral position"
(Dec. 19).
In this letter, the author writes about morali-
ty as if it has existed the same way, unchanged,
for millions of years. Will bypass his responses
to another letter, which he quoted frequently,
and simply address the arguments he made con-
cerning morality.
The author wrote that, "Moral is what is right
and what is wrong - that is an absolute which can-
not be changed by opinion, might. or votes."'
Morality is taught differently by different par-
ents in different parts of the world. In other coun-
tries, even ones democratic and our allies, some
drugs that are outlawed here are legal there.
Does that make us morally superior? Personally,
I am completely against drug use, however, where
and how they were taught morality is complete-
ly different from here.
I merely wish to point out the absurdity of
your notion that "right and wrong" is clearly
defined exactly the same for everyone. On major
issues, there is somewhat of a consensus. Don't
steal, treat others as you wish to be treated.
However, when it comes to things like homo-
sexuality, drug use, gun ownership, etc., there are
varying opinions on morality.
Further on in his letter, he proclaimed, "The
issue is over how to best guide our students to
become good citizens considering the laws cur-
rently in place." So one should unquestionably
obey every'single law in existence? If one does not
believe in a law, then should one not speak out and
voice their opinion? Based on your initial state-
ment, the United States of America would not
exist today as we were not "good citizens" con-
sidering the laws that Great Britain had imposed
upon us; Questioning law and fighting for what
you believe in are key American values and
should not be sacrificed.
The last item I will address is the author's
statement, "The voters of Florida voted not to
legalize gay marriage in the most recent elec-
tion. Should there be a group promoting such
relationships meeting on school property and
taking up school resources?" This statement baf-
fled me the most out of his entire letter.
Earlier, I covered his statement that "Moral is
what is right and what is wrong - that is an
absolute which cannot be changed by opinion,
might or votes." However, we see here that he


/


'I

cites eotes backed 'byfthe1 iight of the Flofiltia
state government For the people who are homo-
sexual, what they see as moral was made illegal
by might and votes.
I would like to conclude my letter with a sim-
ple closing. In America, our predominantly
Christian founding fathers gave us freedom of reli-
gion, expression, speech and assembly. Why can
we simply not follow in their footsteps? I under-
stand that it may seem immoral to many indi-
viduals, however, who am I to tell another person
how to live their life? Who is anyone to judge
another human being or tell them what is right
and wrong? This "morality" is subjective and
painted in monochromatic shades of gray.

Ridealong
I had my "eyes opened" this week thanks to
Fernandina Beach Police Officer Jason Smith.
Thanks to an assignment with my Leadership
Nassau class, I had the opportunity to partici-
pate in a "Law Enforcement Ride-A-Long" with
Officer Smith on Tuesday night, Dec. 23, He is the
ultimate professional that truly cares about the
safety of our citizens in Fernandina Beach. He
also spent a lot of time explaining his job and
showing me all of the tools he has at his finger-
tips. As we patrolled that evening, he would stop
and .speak to citizens in the neighborhood and
drive by the small stores to let the clerks know he
was there if needed.
Hd showed tremendous patience in dealing
with a citizen and a lost boat issue, his investi-
gation and that of his co-officer (name unknown)
was skilled. I was amazed at the amount of infor-
mation he has available and both officers used this
information to ultimately assist in finding this
huge boat Also the traffic stops he had that night
were handled in a business-like manner.
Citizens of Fernandina Beach, we are lucky
people. The police force here is professional,
skilled and well equipped. They patrol regularly
to keep our'city safe. If you disagree, I suggest you
ask for and participate in a police ride-a-long and
"open your eyes" as well.
Officer Smith, thanks once again for your
time and patience. I learned a great deal and
know personally what an outstanding job our
police force does.

Spewingvenom?
In response to Coleman Langshaw's latest
rant, "Dinosaurs roam school district" (Dec. 26):
I am not taking sides one way or another on
the Gay-Straight Alliance issue. It doesn't bother
me. My issue is what Coleman calls a "minority
fringe" not being mainstream.
In many of Coleman's past columns he has
made a point of lambasting us conservatives for
being so close-minded and using foul diatribes
towards all the poor liberals of the world.
After reading his latest column I am wonder-
ing who the venom spewer is now.
With quoted words such as "homophobic,"
"holier than thou zealots," "preachers espousing
hateful views and inciting like-minded followers
to morally attack children," "in our distorted and
pinhole vision of the world" and "intolerant knuck-
leheads," etc., it seems we are now on the receiv-
ing end,
The world is changing, morality is disappear-
ing, families are dysfunctional, evil is rampant,
God is close to being shut out of everything but
the church.
This must be what Coleman calls "main-
stream," and he cannot believe that not everyone
is happy to be a part of it.

A journey of discovery


on the Appalachian Trail


A joyful moment at McAfee Knob in Virginia, above, for
Matt Pipes, a 2007 FBHS graduate who hiked the
Appalachian Trail this year. The 19-year-old started his
trek in north Georgia in April and finished in October at
the end of the trail in Mt. Katahdin. Maine, left. He was
lost in the mountains of New Hampshire in the photo
below.

ANGELA DALUGHTRY
,'E,.s Leader

"Boredom." That's the first reason
Mart Pipes gives for taking a grueling,
solo, six-month hike along the entire
length of the Appalachian Trail from
April to October.
But really the 19-year-old says, "I did-
n't feel like going to college. I wanted to
di-scover myself"
Pipes. a 2007 Fernandina Beach High
School graduate, says he learned a lot
during tie unforgettable journey of
more than 2.1100 miles. which started at
Springer Mountain. Ga.. and ended at
Mount Katahdin. Maine.
"I've seen the %world from outside
social hierarchy." he writes. 'Tve learned
what abuse the human body can endure
and wish to push it further. I've learned
that pure kindness is a staple I couldn't
live without, food is good, water is good.
cigarenes are good. I almost died three
or more times. I dunno.... But hey, I'm
here no\\ and that's what it's all about.
right?"
Pipes. who describes himself as "ncot
the scholarly type." says it has been very
difficult "readjusting back to the social
scene" after his return from hiking the
trail from Georgia ro Maine by himself.
He says that he did meet many people
on the trail, however, and tried to keep in
touch with his parents as often as possi-
ble.
"I met slews of people from all walks
of life." he writes, "with varied goals.
experiences and reasons to even be out
there, from 60-year-old men and women.
to a 12-year-old girl with her mother.
Many people from the U.K., Germany,
Austria. Korea. etc.... to a blind guy. to a
legless man. to a deaf guy, to a bunch of
chaps my age just trying to get away


from the trials and tribulations of life."
During the six-month odyssey, Pipes
says he took about 20 non-hiking days of
rest. and also went off the trail and
canoed in the Shenandoah Valley for
about 100 miles. There were times, he
says, when he and some hiking compan-
ions were clinging to wet rocks, afraid
for their lives. In New Hanpshire, he
says, It rained almost constantly.
"All the way the terrain was ever
changing," he writes. "It was a gradual
process, mind you. Virginia was just a
long, green tunnel, the White Mountains
in Maine were like walking a big aster-
oid with mountains; it was just a rock
slide for weeks and weeks. And so on."
As for food. Pipes says he had it
mailed out to him when possible and
took advantage of the few stores avail-
able on the trail.
"7-11 is. like, my living room," says
Pipes. He says he ate Ramen noodles for
about a month, but that got pretty old.
"I got fixated on instant mashed pota-
toes." he says. "They're so easy to make
and they stick with you. I stuck with that
for about 100 miles."
Pipes says he used a tent for sleeping
most of the time, but occasionally took
advantage of the trail's many hundreds
of shelters when it was convenient.
Sometimes he just slept under the stars.
When asked what he will do next,
Pipes says he has many different plans
in the works. He says he might save up
some money, buy a van and work on oil
rigs with a friend. He's interested in per-
haps going to Vermont and working with
independent tilm groups, and then
there's always the possibility of college.
"I'm just trying to learn," says Pipes.
"I'm a big fan of learning about culture.
It was definitely a cultural experience."

My worst day on the trail: Man, well, it's hard to say, I've
gone through starvation, dehydration, confusion, delusion, ine-
briation and hallucinations! From getting caught in hurricanes
thousands of feet high, climbing vertically as hail and wind and
rain crash down, lightning filling your ears and striking below as
your hair stands on end, to getting caught clogging the sinks in
the women's bathroom 'cause the men's was occupied and you
had to puke from eating and drinking too much ... to hiking 40
miles in one day and the last nine were at night, so it's rocky, it's
like Blair Witch outside, I'm lost almost the whole time ...
there's coyotes everywhere and two families of bear, and creepy
silent deer ... or the chafing, every day my legs would be rough
or on a particularly bad day, bleeding. If it rains your feet are
messed up with blisters all around and you're cold if you stop.
Some days were over hundreds of degrees and others below 30.
You're also getting hurt every day. tired sore, injured, etc., etc.

"Transforming Energy," a
new one-hour documentary

Ex-UNF police chief


is oldest rookie' cop


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Mark Foxworth's law
enforcement career has taken
him to the streets of Jack-
sonville, to an office at the
University of North Florida and
now to the streets of Fernandina
Beach.
Foxworth is the newest offi-
cer with the Fernandina Beach
Police Department The veteran
police officer left a position as
the chief of police at UNF to
become, at age 46, the depart-
ment's "oldest rookie."
He said the position at UNF
was largely administrative, and
he wanted to "get out and be a
cop again."
*So, after a five-year break
from patrolling, Foxworth land-
ed a spot with the FBPD - he
started earlier this month.
Foxworth initially became
interested in working in
Fernandina Beach when he met
Police ChiefJim Hurley at a law
enforcement conference.
"I started hearing about
some very progressive things
he was doing with the depart-
ment," he said. "I saw the
morale was good and it looked
like a place that I wanted to
work."
Foxworth started his career.
with the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office, and in doing so realized
his boyhood dream of being a
police officer. He started as a
corrections officer and retired
more than 20 yearslater as head
of the JSO homicide unit
"I enjoy hands-on police
work and the day-to-day inter-
action with citizens," he said.
So what prompted him to
leave for a chief position at
UNF?
"It was strictly selfish," he
said, laughing. "My daughters
were teenagers and I saw an
opportunity to make some more
money."
* The position at UNF saw
him and his wife, Mary, through
the teenage years of three
daughters, and later three wed-
dings for his daughters.
Now, as an empty-nester,
Foxworth is ready to return to
his first love: police work. As
the UNF police chief. Foxtr-f:i',
said he spent a lot of time in an
office focusing on "institutional
policy."
He's not sitting behind a
desk anymore, but even still,

emony Dec. 11 at the Fernandina Beach Police
Department. Josh and Stephanie Simmons, below, at the
badge pinning ceremony.


Foxworth admits the streets of
Fernandina Beach don't have
.as much going on for an offi-
cer to handle as the streets of
Jacksonville.
But he doesn't mind the
slower pace.
"Its still a small enough com-
munity to get to know people
and places well, but it's not too
small," he said. "Of course it's
nowhere near as busy as
Jacksonville',. but tfie're you
could literally be running from
call to call."
Along with Foxworth a
Fernandina Beach High School
graduate - Joshua Simmons -


joined the Fernandina Beach
Police Department earlier this
month.
Simmons is a 2005 graduate
of FBHS and he is working on
a degree in criminal justice at
Florida Community College in
Jacksonville.
"Officer Simmons is a self-
proclaimed 'people person,' and
coworkers already attest to his
positive attitude and likable per-
sonality," FI- riilidira'ij each
Police Chief Jim Hurley said in
a written statement.
Both men received their
FBPD badges at a badge-pin-
ning ceremony on Dec. 11.


V HELPING OTHERS


Committed to help youth


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader

To say Rich Miller of the
Northeast Florida Community
Action Agency counts on vol-
unteer youth chaperone Christie
Laster is an understatement.
Miller calls Laster his right
hand.
S"In this kind of work, we're
always asked to do more with
less money and a volunteer has
become something that's
absolutely crucial," said Miller.
Laster first became involved.
in the program as a parent.
'To be around children, you
have to go through a certain
amount of screening and she
put herself through that volun-
tarily. She has so many skills
that are just phenomenal."
Laster's reason for volun-


teering with
the program
is simple: she
does it to help
S" " others. She
S also wants to
be a good role
S.. model for her
sons by show-

News-Leader

Two Nassau County Jail
inmates were arrested after jail
personnel found fence and wire
Around the detention facility had
been cut.
Police also found a bundle
of tools containing a hammer,
chisel, crowbar, hacksaw and
carbide blades on a window
ledge outside a cell, and a bag
containing civilian clothes and
shoes was found behind an air
conditioning unit outside the
cell.
Those discoveries, along
with a string running through a
broken window into that same
cell, were found Dec. 17.
Police believe inmate David
Sanders, 43, who was arrested
earlier thistyear in connection
with a string of bank robberies,
approached Gary Martin
Koester, 57, a former cellmate,
about plotting to escape.
Koester was incarcerated on
a charge of driving with a license
that has been suspended or
revoked.
Koester allegedly told inves-
tigators he provided Sanders
with tools and clothes in
exchange for an undisclosed
amount of money.
According to police, Sanders
smuggled a shower rod into his
cell from a common shower
area and used the rod to form a
hole in a window so he could
retrieve tools. Officers say
Sanders created three small
holes in the concrete sur-
rounding that same window in
order to cut around the window
, and escape..
Sanders allegedly.was found
in possession of hacksaw blades
when police searched his cell.
Koesterwas arrested for con-
'veyin g tools into a jail to aid
escape as'well as conspiracy,
burglary and criminal mischief;
Sanders is charged with
attempted escape, conspiracy to
escape and criminal mischief.
Following the discoveries,
the jail was put on lockdown and
all inmates were counted and
accounted for.'

West Nassau safety recorded 149 tackles


DAN SHANKS
Community Newspapers

When West Nassau junior
Garrett Hammett steps on the
football field, opposing receiv-
ers would do well to make a
mental note of where No. 9 is at
all times.
The safety made a habit of
delivering vicious hits to his
opponents this season, and one
look at his numbers show how
effective he was in the second-
ary. In 10 games, he recorded
149 tackles, broke up 24 passes
and recovered two fumbles. For
his tremendous performance
on the defensive side of the ball,
Hammett was named the All
County Co-Most Valuable Play-
er.
Part of what makes Ham-
mett so valuable is his versatil-
ity. In addition to being a ball-
hawking safety, he also racked
up 688 yards of offense and 471-
return yards, and scored five
touchdowns.
"He'll play whatever you
'want him to do," West Nassau
coach George Nelson said.
"He's one of those guys ... who's
always ready. ... He's one of
those kids that if you had 11
(of them), you wouldn't worry
about anything."
Even though he plays a
number of positions, there is
no question about which one,
is Hammett's favorite.
"I say safety; because you...
have one of the biggest jobs,"
he said. "If they get past you, it's
pretty much a score, so you're
trying to stop them at any cost.
And I love hitting people."
Hammett takes a great deal
of pride in his reputation of
being a hard hitter; When pre-
sented with the choice of mak-


ing an interception on third
down or delivering a bone-jar-
ring hit to knock the ball loose
and force a fourth down,
Hammett didn't hesitate at all.
"I'd say a big hit, because a
big hit on a wide receiver, itjust
(creates) so much momentum,"
he said. "It shows that other
receivers aren't gonna (want
to) come across the middle
.when they catch the ball."
When receivers cross his
path, Hammett wants to pun-
ish them early and often. He
said that as the game goes on,
the receivers will be increas-
ingly tentative because they
expect to take the big hit, and
that intimidation factor is a
huge part of Hammett's game.
"If you have a team that can
pass the ball all day, then you
want to take out some of their,
good receivers and show that
you aren't just gonna get an
easy pass or (take) a little hit
and be able to keep coming
across the middle and catch-
ing passes," he said. 'Tm gonna
give you a hit, you're gonna
know about it, and it's gonna
stick in your mind."
"He's a hard hitter," Nelson
said. "Guys can expect to get
thunked. ... He's got great
speed and he will hit you."
When asked if there was
one game this season that stuck
out in his mind, Hammett men-
tioned the game against Bolles.
Going into the game, Hammett
knew that there would be a
plethora of college scouts in
attendance.. With the amount
of exposure the players would.
be getting, Hammett said he
felt a lot of pressure to step up
his game.
"Bolles is pretty much the
best team in the state, and


every time you go up against a
. good team, you know scouts
are gonna be there watching
them," he said.."So you want
to stand out and do what you
can (to shine).... You just get so
nervous, but .(after) that first
kickoff or kickoff return, all
your butterflies just go away."
Hammett came up with a
signature moment in that game,
when he returned a kickoff 97
yards for the touchdown. The
experience was one he said he
would never forget
"Itwas just a great thing," he
said. "It was something you
don't really feel often. You run
a kickoff'return against Bolles.
People are like; 'Who's that?'
It's just something great" He
added that he wouldn't have
scored without the help of his
teammates.
Colleges across the country
are taking notice of what
Hammett's been able to accom-
plish. He has received feedback
from a number of programs
across the nation, and has the
chance to get even more atten-
tion as he participates in the
U.S. Army National Combine
in San Antonio, which begins
Thursday and ends Saturday.
According to usarmy-
combine.com, the combine,
which invites 500 of the coun-
try's top underclassmen, "is
specifically designed to high-
light the football abilities and
talents of today's rising under-
classmen and tomorrow's
future high school, college and
NFL stars." Before leaving for
San Antonio, Hammett said that
a strong performance at the
combine could thrust him into
the national spotlight.

Sixth a disastrous 2008 season final-
S. ly put to rest, we can now brace
n"' ourselves for eight solid months
S of speculation about what 2009
holds in store for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Has
veteran RB Fred Taylor already played his last
down? Will the Jags cut the dead weight of WR
Jerry Porter, who earned about $1 million for
each catch he made this season? And maybe
most importantly, will the proverbial ther-
mometer be turned up a few notches on the
seat of head coach Jack Del Rio, who might
have dodged the brunt' of the blame for the
2008 fiasco when personnel honcho James
"Shack" Harris resigned last week?
The Jacksonville brass will likely use much
of the next several months to spew the compa-
ny line that "this is a building process that will
take time" and "fans need to be patient." And
they're right. Because despite the preseason
predictions of greatness, the reality is the
Jaguars are full of holes and in need of a
makeover that likely won't take place in a
year's time.
With that said, I've got a two-word reason
why Jags fans won't buy it: Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins managed to clinch the AFC East
Sunday just one year after turning in a laugh-


able 1-15 campaign. Based on
that, many Jacksonville fans
will undoubtedly expect a.
wildcard berth, at the very
least, in 2009. But without an
infusion of talented players at
several key positions, namely
across both lines of scrim-
mage and in the wide receiv-
er corps, I don't believe that
expectation is very realistic.
SPORTS ' In hindsight, it appears
Sthe Jaguars night have

season because they had
::JOHN L. many below-average players.
CRAWFORD Not that I think Del Rio
... should be shown the door,
because expectations for the
2008 Jaguars were astronomically too high.
But barring a miraculous string of off-season
player acquisitions, the Jaguars might very
v.ell be coach hunting next off-season.
Becau--e au unfortunate as it might be, percep-
tion is everything ...
Jacksonville's game against Baltimore con-
firmed at least one thing in my mind: Jaguars
safety Reggie Nelson is no Ed Reed. After


watching Nelson at the University of Florida,
there was no doubt in my mind that he,would
step right onto a.NFL team and single-handed-
ly shut down opponents' deep passing game,
while supporting the run-stopping effort and
knocking a few chinstraps loose along the way.
I couldn't have-agreed more with early
comparisons of Nelson to Reed after watching
him patrol the Gators' secondary for two sea-
sons. That is until Sunday, when Reed put on a
safety clinic and Nelson once again appeared
lost. Granted Nelson is a young player who
might develop into a great NFL safety in time.
Right now, however, he's just another weak
link on a porous Jacksonville defense...
If the Florida State Seminoleswanted to
make a case they are on the road back to col-
lege football prominence, Saturday's 42-13
hammering of Wisconsin was quite an opening
statement. While.FSU hem-hauled around
with the Badgers for much of the first half,
they resembled the 'Noles of old in a dominat-
ing second half, full of speed and swagger. It's
evident Florida State is once again getting
some big-time football talent on campus.
SWith all the above said, let me preference
"the rest of this column by acknowledging that
Bobby Bowden might be the best coach in the


history of college football. But I can't help but.
wonder if his current role with the team might
be impeding the progress of the Seminoles as
they attempt to climb back into the limelight
It's obvious that offensive coordinator
Jimbo Fisher, who has been named Bowden's
eventual successor, is in charge during games.
But might Bowden's week-to-week presence
be taking away from Fisher's ability to game
plan and to get his players on the same page?
.Sure, things went very well against .
Wisconsin, but could the inconsistency we saw
from game to game during the regular season
be the product of a distraction that Bowden..
might bring to the lockerroom? Last week-
end's victory over the Badgers might have
been a glimpse at a new era, the Jimbo Fisher
era, of Seminoles football.
But when will the Bobby Bowden era come
to what many have to feel is a long-overdue
end?
With Joe Paterno's recent signing of a
three-year contract extension at Penn State,
we might already have that answer.

MVP Continued from 1B

"I think it can take me to the
,next level, to D-I," he said.
"Learning from college coach-
es and showing that I've got
the potential to play there ...its
gonna be great. It's kind of
overwhelming." He added that
none of this would be possible
without his faith in God.
As much as he wants to sign
with a marquis university,
Hammett's number one goal
for his senior season is to help
get his team to the playoffs. In
each of the last two years, West
Nassau has defeated the dis-
trict runner-up. The Warriors
knocked off Fernandina in 2007
and beat Ribault in the season
finale this year. Hammett be-
lieves games are an indication
of what this team is capable of.
"It just shows that if we actu-
ally play to our potential and
give 110 percent, then we can
go to the playoffs," he said. "But
everybody has to do their job."
He, added that the team is
already working out, trying to
make that goal a reality.
Nelson said that it has been
a joy to coach Hammett, who is
so dedicated to getting better.
"It's a real pleasure coaching
a guy like him," he said. "You
know he's gonna give you 100
percent all the time."

Findflaw and fix it


My brother-in-law is Hank
Haney and he coaches Tiger
Woods. I have been lucky
enough to watch them work
together on Tiger's game.
Here is something I learned:
Tiger Woods on how to prac-
tice. The key, though, is to
practice with a purpose.
Tiger says: "My philoso-
phy has always been to identi-
fy the weakest part of my
game and focus on turning it
into a strong part of my game.
That approach will work for
you too. Make an honest
assessment of your game and
determine where you're los-
ing most of your strokes.
Whether it's the driver, irons,
wedges or putter, simplify
your instruction to get better.


"Find a
professional
to help you
identify your
Sflaw and pro-,
vide the cor-
rect instruc-
tion to fix it.
Then tailor
your practice
QUICK sessions so
most of your
GOLF time is spent
TIPC on improving
TIPS that part of
ED BOWE your game.
That's the
fastest way
to get results."

instruction for the Amelia

Good weather, excellent fishing conditions in 2008


Excellent fishing con-
ditions are always
accompanied by
good weather and
fishermen were in luck dur-
ing the 2008 fishing season
with excellent weather condi-
tions for most of the year.
The spring fishing season
saw average rainfalls and light
winds, allowing sports fishing
boats to test Northeast
Florida's and Southeast
Georgia's Gulf Stream waters.
Big catches of wahoo came
during late winter and
throughout the spring season.
However, dolphin fishing was-
n't up to par with the lack of
Sargasso weed lines.
Capt. Allen Mills once
again organized the annual
Bluewater Fishing
Tournament and big catches
of wahoo and sailfish high-
lighted the event. Ryan
Rodeffer captained Jay
Mock's sport fishing boat,


"Pay Dirt," to a first-place win.
Rodeffer also took first-
place honors during the annu-
al Real Yellow Pages Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament, fishing aboard
the "Game Day."
Cobia also
highlighted
the spring
fishing sea-
son at many
of the
nearshore
fish havens..
Cobia weigh-
ing to 60 '
OUTDOORS pounds were
--...- .taken by fish-
Terryacoss ermen tar-
S getting the St.
Marys shipping channel and
at both tips of the St. Marys
rock jetties. However, by far
the best cobia fishing action
came from the deep waters of
Cumberland Sound. Cobia
weighing from 20-50 pounds


were caught on a regular
basis during the last few
hours of the flood and the
first few hours of the falling
tide.
James Barber landed the.
largest,black drum during the
annual Nassau Sports Fishing
Association Black Drum
Tournament. Barber's big,
drum weighed 79.50 pounds.
Many of the larger drum this
spring were caught at the tip
of the St. Marys south jetty
rocks and just off Main
Beach, where a good, hard
bottom and depression annu-'
ally attracts big drum.
During late spring and all'
through the summer fishing
season, tarpon fishing was
good at the tip of both the St.
Marys south and north jetty
rocks. Tarpon were also
caught in the many backwater
tidal rivers where good con-
centrations of baitfish and
shrimp were found. The


southern end of Amelia Island
along the beaches also held
good tarpon fishing, particu-
larly during late summer.
During the 26th annual
Fernandina Beach,
Tournament of Champions
Kingfish Tournament, Steve
"Martin captained 'Team Bad
Habit" to top honors with a
45.40-pound king mackerel.
The winning kingfish was
caught at the Elton Bottom.
"We were live bait trolling
at the Elton Bottom when a
big king nailed a live goggle
eye trolled deep with a down-
rigger," Martin said. "The big
king took off on a long run
that seemed to last forever. I
had to actually back off on the
reel's drag so that the small
kingfish hooks would not tear
free. The big, mack made sev-
eral long runs while we anx-
iously waited for the kingfish
to come within gaffing range.
Finally, after a twenty-minute


battle, Capt. Ralph Oliver
gaffed my fish right in the
middle section of the back
and hoisted our winning king-
fish onboard."
The 'Tuna Tails" kingfish
team landed the winning
kingfish at 1 p.m. during the
first day of the'tournament.
Jimmy Stubbs took top
honors in the annual NSFA
Trout Tournament with a
4.55-pound speck. Jeff
Bennett won top honors in
the annual Knox Wyatt Trout
Tournament with a record-
breaking 6.9-pound sea trout.
Excellent fishing condi-
tions continued during the fall
and winter fishing seasons
with a big run of bull reds at
the St. Marys inlet and along
the beaches of Cumberland
and Amelia islands. "Slot" size
reds and keeper sea trout.
were also plentiful in the
backwaters of Cumberland
and Amelia islands.


Cumberland Island's
Christmas Creek remains a
well-kept secret by a few
speck fishermen who brave
the ocean run to this fertile
sea trout stream.
Flounder fishing held its
own during 2008 with some of
the larger flounder being
taken along the St Marys
jetty rocks and at historical
Fort Clinch. Whiting fishing
was also excellent during the
last ofthe flood and during all
of the falling tides along both
Cumberland and Amelia
islands' pristine beaches.
Fishermen were handi-
capped with the high costs of
fuel during most of the 2008
fishing season. Backwater
and nearshore fishing
became more and more popu-
lar with saving hundreds of
dollarsin boat fuel.
Be safe during the 2009
fishing season and Happy
New Year.

Boys & Girls tour
The newly organized Yulee Optimist Club met recently at the Miller Boys & Girls Club
on Old Nassauville Road to learn more about the organization and tour the facility.
They enjoyed a lunch catered by Woody's Bar-B-Q and then presented the Boys & Girls
Clubs with a $500 check. Center is Bill Gower, Boys & Girls Clubs president-elect,
accepting the check from Jacque Osborne, president of the Optimist Club of Yulee.


Bell ringer
When Madeline Richard of
Citrona Homes heard that
charitable donations were low
this year, she volunteered to
ring a Salvation Army bell on
North Ridge Lane, the so-
called "Christmas Lights"
street off Citrona Drive where
hundreds of people come to
view the holiday lights on res-
idents' houses. Lynne
Peterson, director of the local
Salvation Army Hope House,
agreed that it was a good idea
and Richard and friends rang
the bell in front of her house
on North Ridge, raising $630
in four nights. "People love
the Salvation Army and the
bell ringers are an integral
part of Christmas. We saw so
many beautiful families drive
by, complete with their dogs
and even cats, enjoying the
lights and they happily gave.
It makes everyone feel good.
And it was so easy for people
to drop in their contribution
while they slowly drove
through the neighborhood,"
said Richard.

This note was written by
John Stewart of Tennessee..
My sister, Sara Robertson,
who lives in Nassau County,
was found Dec. 3 in her home
with eight dogs and two cats
and had a massive stroke four
to six days prior. She is in crit-
ical condition. These pets,
most of which were rescues,
were taken to Nassau County
Animal Services.
Sara founded a No Kill res-
cue organization in Palm
Beach many years ago and
has devoted most ofher life to
taking in dogs and cats and
trying to find permanent
homes for them. She took on
the tremendous expenses out
of pocket for food and vet bills
over the years.
With the.heroic and loving
help of friend Anne Santora,
most all the animals have
been placed. However, three
dogs Sara rescued still remain
homeless.
One is Sally, an older
female beagle mix, who has a
sweet disposition and is great
with kids. Misty (pictured), is
a female black lab/shepherd
mix and is approximately five
years old. Ruckus, a male
black lab mix, is eight years
old. All three are in very good
health and immediately need
homes!
I'm praying that three lov-
ing families can open their
hearts to them and provide a.
home as Sara has done most
her life for hundreds of ani-


r ". - - . a
mals. Sara . -
and I would,
be ever so
grateful.
Thank you
so very
much! .
This
classy
young
feline is
named,
Sasha. She
is a gor-
geous
domestic long hair, 2-year-old
female. Sasha loves to nuzzle
up to people. She is the ulti-
mate lap cat and companion.
She just wants to find a loving
person or family to make her
a part of their new year ahead!.
NCAS is located at 86078
