Massacre

survivor:

'We're

all one'
KATHIE COLGROVE
Community Newspapers
Hilliard resident Mary Hall Daniels,
89, does not recall the nights when
white vigilantes hellbent on murder
swept through Rosewood, a predomi-
nantly African-American community,
the first week of January 1923.
"I was 3 years old," Daniels said. "I
don't remember anything but what my
mother told me." Her family lived on
160 acres in Rosewood, west of
Gainesville.
Though she knows the events from
Rosewood stemmed from racism, she
holds no ill will toward anyone for what
happened in the past.
"We all need to pray and come
together as one," she said. "We need to
treat one another like we would like to
be treated, regardless of color, because
we're all flesh and blood."
Daniels was the youngest of nine
children born to Mary Davis. Her
father, Charles Baccus Hall, a native
Nigerian, was already deceased when
the Rosewood Massacre occurred.
Within a week, white mobs killed
innocent African-Americans and
whites, setting fire to many of the
homes and businesses owned by
African-Americans in response to a
claim made by Fannie Taylor.
Taylor, a white woman, filed a police
report saying she had been beaten by
an African-American man. Rumors cir-
culated that she had been raped.
However, a young witness did see a
white man other than Taylor's hus-
band enter the home in the morning
and leave some time before noon. No
one was ever prosecuted in the
Rosewood incident.
Many African-American residents,
including the Daniels family, fled to
safety in the nearby woods and swamp.
However, Daniels was unintentionally

left alone in the home. Though
she is unsure how long she
was left alone, she remembers
that an unknown rescuer
brought her to her waiting fam-
ily.
After a few days in the
woods, the family boarded a
train to Gainesville for reloca-
tion purposes, as did other
Rosewood women and chil-
dren. Those who left the set-
tlement never returned.
Daniels' mother eventually
remarried, but the large fami-
ly struggled. They were sus-
tained through hard work and
the kindness of neighbors and
friends who donated clothes
and extra food to keep the fam-
ily going.
After graduating from
Lincoln High School in 1940,
Daniels married and moved to
Miami. She later moved to
Jacksonville, then Hilliard.
Divorced twice and widowed
once, Daniels also raised a
daughter, Alzada.
In 1994, the state legisla-
ture passed a compensation
bill giving $150,000 to each of
the nine remaining survivors



AlP Continued from 1A
place. "We have been looking
for an equity partner to help
us re-establish a resort busi-
ness plan to take us forward,"
said Jack Healan, president of
Amelia Island Co., a position
he will retain. "Redquartz
Atlanta is the exact partner for
which we were searching,
particularly as it relates to their
ability and willingness to work
with us financially on our
plans at Amelia Island
Plantation."
"We'll bring, I suppose,
more energy and some good
ideas, and I suppose a renewal
of sorts," said Patrick (Paddy)
Kelly, chairman of the parent
Dublin company, in a telephone
interview Monday.
He described the enterprise
as "a new partnership" that will
upgrade and expand the
Plantation's infrastructure and
increase the number of inter-
national visitors.
The injection of funding will
enable the Plantation to move
forward over the next five to
10 years on plans to build new
hotels and other amenities and
to modernize current facilities,
Kelly said. Projects may include
a new Amelia Links Lodge, con-
ference center expansion,
expansion of the Amelia Inn
and a hotel at Amelia River Golf
Club.
"The environment is so
beautiful, the people so warm"
at the island resort, Kelly
said, but its facilities have not
been significantly refurbished.
"New energy does make a dif-
ference. We're absolutely
thrilled with the opportunity,"
he said.
Kelly said he met Healan
about two and a half years ago,
and that ultimately led to the
business deal, which was con-
cluded after months of negoti-
ations. "Our role is one of a
supportive role, of encourage-
ment and friendship," Kelly
said.
"I have this real strong feel-
ing for America," he added, not-
ing the historic ties between
Ireland and this country. He
suggested that "international
connectivity" would increase
overseas tourism here.
"We find at Sawgrass now,
we're bringing a lot of people
from Europe," Kelly said.
Redquartz purchased Marriott
Sawgrass Resort and Spa in
Ponte Vedra in 2006. (Sawgrass
has a different management
team and distinct organiza-
tional structure from that pro-
posed in the Amelia Island deal,
Kelly emphasized.)
Richard Goldman, senior
vice president and chief mar-
keting officer of Amelia Island
Co., said "about 2 percent" of
visitors are from out of the
country now, a level that has
remained steady for the past
decade. He estimated the
Plantation "would be able to
double our international visi-
tors" in the future.
"From a marketing stand-
point, we're very excited,"
Goldman said.
Amelia Links is one of four
Plantation golf courses, and the
lodge was proposed in 2006 to


provide additional rooms and
facilities to enhance the
Plantation's reputation as a des-
tination golf resort. The Amelia
River Golf Club is on city-
owned property south of the
municipal airport, where a
hotel is proposed. Renovations
have been proposed for the
existing 249-room Amelia Inn
& Beach Club hotel.
Amelia Island Plantation is
on 1,350 acres, including more
than three miles of beachfront.
Richard L. Cooper, who died
last month at 82, purchased the
property from the Sea Pines
Co., and his son, Rick Cooper,
now oversees the business.


KATHIE COLGROVE/COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS

Rosewood Massacre in 1923. She rode on a float
Monday during the Concerned Citizens of Hilliard
peace walk.


whose families owned land in
Rosewood, with an additional
pool of $500,000, which was
divided among the descen-
dants.
As of 2005, Daniels was one
of three survivors. She believes
she is now the sole survivor.
"I never wanted to be rich,


honestly. So when I got my
money, I bought me a home
and paid cash. I bought a new
car and paid cash," she said.
Daniels eventually sold the
home and currently lives in a
house bequeathed to her by a
sister.
Daniels has had a positive


impact on others in Hilliard.
She is a member of Mt. Olivet
Baptist Church. She is also
involved with the Westside
Democratic Club of Nassau
County.
"She's one of the pillars of
the community. She's well rec-
ognized and respected," said
fellow Democrat Ted
Dinwiddie. "When she speaks,
we listen."
He added that he believes
that her life experience is his-

then, and this is now, but for
history's sake (we should) use
it as a tool so that it doesn't

and each other today."
Daniels was scheduled to
ride on a float in a celebration
commemorating Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Day, hosted by
the Concerned Citizens of

St. Marys mill


buyer in default?


EMILY GOODSON
Community Newspapers
The buyer of a former paper
mill in St. Marys, Ga., report-
edly has defaulted on its last
four scheduled payments,
prompting a lawsuit.
The lawsuit filed in Camden
County (Ga.) Superior Court
calls for North River LLC, a sub-
sidiary of Jacksonville-based
developer LandMar, to pay more
than $31 million in principal,
interest, late fees and attorneys
fees.
Ward Stone, trustee for the
bankruptcy court that sold the
property to North River in 2005,
said the developer defaulted on
its last four scheduled payments.
"We've accelerated the note
and demanded payment of the
debt in full," Stone said.
The bankruptcy court, which
sold the former Durango-
Georgia Paper Mill property at
auction in 2005, would be forced
to take back the property and
resell it should North River
administrators decide not to pay
the debt, Stone said.
He also said that bankruptcy
court attorneys would likelywait
until the real estate market
improves before putting the
property back on the auction
block.
LandMar agreed to pay $36.6
million for the site almost four
years ago after Durango
declared bankruptcy and closed
the paper mill in 2002. North
River LLC began making pay-
ments on the debt, and demoli-
tion crews began tearing down
the complex, selling some of it


as scrap and some to other
industries.
LandMar's initial develop-
ment plan for the site included
more than 2,000 dwelling units,
most of them apartments or con-
dos located above retail space,
as well as a mixed-use facility.
Demolition at the site is 90-95
percent complete, Stone said,
but an extensive environmental
cleanup is still needed before
the property can be developed
into anything useful.
Rick Barlow, a real estate
investor and former mill employ-
ee, said that the widespread
environmental pollution is the
main issue with the paper mill
property. Barlow said that he
believes that, given the current
economic downturn, the site will
have to be declared a Superfund
site by the federal government
before corrective action is taken.
The uncertainty of the paper
mill site's future means more
waiting for creditors and former
employees who are still owed
money for salaries, benefits and
vacation time.
Among those creditors is the
city of St. Marys, which still
has not received more than
$62,000 in property taxes owed
for 2008.
Stone said the bankruptcy
court has distributed $9 million
to creditors thus far but said
others will have to wait if the
$31 million cannot be obtained.
"Obviously they are not
going to be able to receive that
money until it's paid to us or the
property is sold," he said. "Pay-
ments to creditors, unfortu-
nately, are going to be delayed."

Financial crisis hits


home, but our local


economy is resilient


crisis and subse-
quent economic
slowdown are hit-
ting uncomfortably close to
home.
In recent weeks, numer-
ous developments have
occurred here, causing
tremors of concern for
Nassau County. The econo-
my here has remained
resilient thus far, however,
despite some setbacks.
These
include:
* Both
the Nassau
z- County and
Fernandina
S Beach gov-
ernments
are indicat-
ing that tax
STEVE'S revenues
MARKET dropped
PLACE significantly
year over
year. It
Steve Nicklas appears that
both munic-
ipalities have suitable
reserves and have budgeted
appropriately for a recession.
* The public school sys-
tem here has also fretted
about declining revenues
from both local and state
sources. School officials are
eyeballing further cuts in
staffing and class offerings if
the economic downturn
worsens.
* A major employer
here has been beset by the
global financial meltdown.
Smurfit-Stone, which owns
the large mill north of down-
town Fernandina Beach,
reportedly may seek bank-
ruptcy protection if it cannot
meet or restructure several
debt obligations. The reports
are somewhat premature,
however. Nothing has been
formally announced, and the
local mill is operating nor-
mally.
* Some popular local
eateries have succumbed to
the slowdown in spending.
There are estimates that as
many as 20 restaurants have
closed, although several new
ones recently opened. One of
the attractions for downtown
Fernandina Beach and the
rest of Amelia Island is the
eclectic menu of restaurants.


That may be the
light of hope and
prosperity at the end
of a tunnel.


* The banks here have
handily endured the financial
crisis thus far. Except for the
consolidation of several bank
branches, the financial sys-
tem in Nassau County
appears to be weathering the
storm. Several new institu-
tions, such as Prosperity
Bank, have recently entered
the local market.
* Construction of com-
mercial properties has
ground to a halt. Several
recently completed town-
house projects along Sadler
Road have struggled with
sales - and reportedly flirted
with bankruptcy. However,
construction is apparently
plowing ahead with several
Summer Beach properties.
Even so, the economy in
Nassau County has thrived,
due to its diversity. While
tourism is a major industry
here, it is not the only one.
With upscale resorts,
major industries, and various
retail outlets, the economic
framework here is complex
and strong. With no doubt,
the local economy has felt
the wrath of the economic
downturn. But this area has
survived much better than
most.
The winter season is nor-
mally slower for local busi-
nesses anyhow, since
tourism dries up during
these months. The busier
spring and summer seasons
are just around the corner,
and also waiting in the wings
is a massive federal stimulus
package - compliments of
Uncle Sam.
Therefore that may be the
light of hope and prosperity
at the end of a tunnel. And
not the headlight of an
oncoming train of recession.

advisor who lives on Amelia
Island. He can be reached at

Historic Old Town house


approved for demolition


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
The Historic District Council
of Fernandina Beach has made
the difficult decision to approve
demolition of a historic house
in Old Town.
A Code Enforcement Board
hearing in December also
"strongly recommended" dem-
olition. It was the HDC's sec-
ond hearing on the demolition
application, and the decision is
final.
The house, located at 801
Someruelus St., has been the
subject of controversy since
2005, when owner Thomas
Stevens was cited by the city's
code enforcement board for
"failure to maintain a historic
property."
Several architects and
preservation experts have been
unable to conclusively pin down
the exact date when the house
was built, with dates ranging
from 1814 to around 1880. It has
since been discovered that parts
of the house may have been
added long after its original
building date. But the struc-
ture's extreme state of deterio-
ration has finally convinced even
the most enthusiastic preserva-
tionists that it cannot be saved.
According to HDC chair
SuAnne Thamm, the commit-
tee voted unanimously but reluc-
tantly at its Thursday meeting to
have the house demolished.
"I don't think any one of us
wanted to tear down a historic
house," said Thamm. But unfor-
tunately, she said, "no one would
step up to the plate to save the
house." She also noted that the
structure had been listed as
"dilapidated" as far back as a
1985 survey of the area. Thamm
says a restoration foundation
also approached the house's
owners about 10 years ago, but
was not able to follow through
on restoration of the house.
The house, built in the 19th
century, has sat unoccupied for
many years. Stevens bought it in
2002 for $150,000. The Nassau
County Property Appraiser
record of the sale still lists the
structure as a "junk house."
Stevens, who says he had
planned to eventually live on the
property, found out in 2005 that
the house was of historical sig-
nificance.
At one point last fall, Stevens
was willing to work with former


property owners to save the his-
torically significant structure.
The house was once owned by
an African-American family,
Florence and Henry McDonald.
Otis Mobley, grandson of the
McDonalds, spoke last October
of possibly relocating and restor-
ing the house using a federal a
preservation grant, perhaps to
create a museum of African-
American culture.
Marquetta Goodwine,
known as "Queen Quet,"
founder of the Gullah/Geechee
Sea Island Coalition, also expres-
sed interest at that time in the
restoration of the house, and
suggested the city work with
the Gullah/Geechee Founda-
tion to restore and maintain the
building.
According to a Jan. 15 city
staff report, "staff feels it is
imperative that appropriate mit-
igation occur in order to balance
the loss of this resource, which
is important to the African-
American history of Old Town."
The report also states that
Professor Bill Tilson of the
University of Florida, who has
been involved in evaluating the

house, may work on the demo-
lition along with architectural
students. One of city staff's con-
ditions for demolishing the
house is to have an expert pres-
ent to report on any archeolog-
ical finds at the site.
According to City Planner
Adrienne Dessy, the certificate
of appropriateness for demoli-
tion will last for a year. It is up to
property owner Stevens to coor-
dinate with Tilson for the arche-
ological study. The certificate
of appropriateness may also be
extended up to a year.
According to the report, both
the Gullah-Geechee Nation and
the National Trust for Historic
Preservation recommended

um, and coordination with the

Legal snag may keep


landfill open longer
DVA cIAITH


News Leader


Tensions flared at the Jan.
15 meeting of the Nassau
County Commission amid news
of a possible snag in the coun-
ty's plan to close the West
Nassau Landfill by Sept. 30.
The commission voted to
close the landfill, long a notori-
ous money pit for the county,
two days prior. However, legal
issues raised at the subsequent
meeting could potentially delay
that closure for another year or
more, costing taxpayers mil-
lions of dollars.
County Attorney David
Hallman and Clerk of Court
John Crawford raised concerns
that the law might require the
county to re-bid the contract to
manage the landfill, currently
held by Golder Associates.
Hallman and Crawford
expressed concern that the con-
tract, in place since 1999, had a
vague termination clause, and
that it might not cover some
specialized tasks related to land-
fill closure. Both those facts,
they said, could place the coun-
ty in dangerous legal waters.
Hallman and Crawford
asked for time to review the
contract to determine if a new
bidding process was necessary.
County Commissioner Mike
Boyle, however, was upset at
the timing. "If this had been
raised six months ago, it would-
n't be a problem ... but we took
a vote two days ago to close
this landfill, and there are dead-
lines we've got to meet," he
said. "Now it seems like we're


'This contract has been in effect for 10 years.
Is there some reason we're just hearing
this from you now?'
COUNTY COMMISSIONER MIKE BOYLE
TO CLERK OF COURT JOHN CRAWFORD


trying to find the obstacles."
"Are we raising these con-
cerns because the scope of
what we're asking them to do
(to close the landfill) is outside
the scope of the original con-
tract?" Commissioner Stacy
Johnson asked.
"Yes, ma'am, in part,"
Hallman said.
Golder Associates repre-
sentative Wendy Karably
strongly disagreed. "In my esti-
mation, this is exactly what is in
our contract," she said. "... I did-
n't see anything here that has
not been done in the last 10
years of our contract."
"My concern is if we go out
for a (new bid), what if the low-
est bid is now $500,000? How
have I protected the taxpayers?"
Commission Chair Barry
Holloway asked. "... And this
throws us out beyond the dead-
line, and now we're looking at
an additional $3 million a year
to keep this open."
"This contract has been in
effect for 10 years. Is there
some reason we're just hear-
ing this from you now?" Boyle
asked Crawford.
"These are new tasks, Mr.
Boyle," Crawford said. "These
are brand new tasks (associat-
ed with closure). I can't read


minds, and I can't look at things
until I get them."
Hallman said he and
Crawford hoped to have
resolved their questions about
the contract quickly. "We're
hopeful that we can come back
in a week and say, 'We've
walked through our concerns
and we're all on the same sheet
of music,'" he said.
Crawford agreed. "I've got
to go over this with the attorney
and make sure we're on good,
solid ground," he said.
Holloway told Crawford and
Hallman he expected a swift
resolution to the problem. "If
there were certain processes
that go into closing the landfill,
why didn't we bring those for-
ward before we voted to close
the landfill?" he said. "Now
we're faced with the possibility
of another year before we close
this.... I share Mr. Boyle's con-
cern, and I know, Mr. Crawford,
that you do too. So I ask you,
please, let's take care of this
issue as soon as we can."
However, neither Hallman
nor Crawford would make any
guarantees. "There are two
things I'm concerned about,"
Crawford said. "One is pre-
serving the public trust, and
the other is staying within the
law. ... Right now, I have ques-
tions, and I will be as solid as a
rock until those questions are
answered. It could be next
week, it might not be next
week. But I won't budge until
those questions are answered."

Streamline permitting


Nassau County, like the rest of the
nation, is facing challenging econom-
ic times. And in these times, it's vital
that we do all we can to create an
environment where sustainable economic
development - the creation of good jobs,
increased quality of life, protection of our envi-
ronment - can flourish.
A critical component of such an environ-
ment is a reputation for efficiency and cus-
tomer service by our governments. Both
Nassau County and Fernandina Beach are
working hard to improve their customer serv-
ice. But in the area of land development and
building permitting, there is still work to be
done to improve that reputation.
The complaints by residents and business
when it comes to getting a permit are not all
that different. "It takes too long." "Why didn't
you tell me I had to do that from the begin-
ning?" "It's not worth the time and money."
Residents and business owners alike who
venture into the permitting system often
emerge overwhelmed by the process and frus-
trated by the time it can take to get a permit
for even the smallest of projects.
And for larger projects in the county, the
process as it now stands is an expensive gam-
ble. Developers are asked to fully design and
engineer a project - a process that can cost
thousands of dollars and take months of time -
before it goes to the Board of Commissioners
for approval or rejection.
New jobs and tax revenues are lost as com-
panies choose to do business in surrounding
counties where they don't face the same uncer-
tainties. Small improvement projects are
dropped or not even contemplated because of
the hassle and the cost.
Looking to assist the county and the city in


this area, the Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-Yulee
Chamber of Commerce, the
Greater Nassau County
-C Chamber of Commerce
and the Nassau County
Economic Development
Board created a Permitting
Task Force several years
ago to examine the current
CHAMBER permitting procedures in the
OF city and the county and to
COMMERCE offer recommendations to
both for streamlining the
process.
Regina Those recommendations
Duncan are now complete. While the
specifics vary from county to
city, the overall goal for both is the same - to
increase time certainty and reduce inconsis-
tency.
Key elements in both sets of recommenda-
tions are pre-permitting meetings and building
permit checklists.
Pre-permitting meetings between every
client and planning staff would set the ground
rules from the beginning, saving everyone's
valuable time. Applicants will find out what
they need to do to make sure their plans are
complete and compliant from the start. And
planners will cite specific code for every
requirement applicants need to meet.
A crucial part of that meeting is the build-
ing permit checklist. These checklists should
include the various departments that must
sign off on the application form: planning and
zoning official, Nassau County Health
Department, city/county planner, fire marshal,
tax collector and so on.
Some of these measures already have been


; process

implemented by the city and county, and it is
great to be part of their efforts to implement
changes for the better.
We believe full implementation of these
measures will:
* Reduce the timeframe for land develop-
ment reviews by months in some cases and
building permit reviews by as much as 50 per-
cent.
* Create a procedure that is efficient and
easy to understand.
* Add certainty and predictability to the
appeals process, as well as lowering the num-
ber of frivolous appeals.
* Maintain public input and staff review.
Chamber of commerce leaders presented
their recommendations to Nassau County
commissioners in December. Those recom-
mendations included having staff or commis-
sioners, as required, approve or reject concep-
tual plans for large-scale projects first; if
approved, final engineering would then be
done to meet the requirements mandated in
the approved conceptual plan.
County commissioners supported the rec-
ommendations and directed staff to develop
and bring back ordinances incorporating the
suggested improvements. A similar presenta-
tion will be made shortly to Fernandina Beach
commissioners.
Chamber of Commerce leadership
remains committed to working with the city
and county in the coming months to improve
the land development and building permit-
ting system for all, whether it's a large com-
mercial development or a simple home
improvement.
Regina Duncan, CAE, CCE, is president of
the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee
Chamber of Commerce.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Boiling over Crane Island
Congratulations to Eric Titcomb, Robert
Weintraub and Julie Ferriera for their successful
litigation to prevent the illegal expansion of devel-
opment on Crane Island. It is quite dismaying that
we now have four county commissioners voting
to appeal Judge Brian Davis' decision ("County to
appeal ruling on Crane Island," Jan. 14).
Commissioner Stacy Johnson had the foresight
to vote nay, no doubt recognizing the questionable
reasons presented for this appeal. To wit:
Mike Boyle is being disingenuous in voting for
an appeal of the Crane Island decision on the
contention he just wants clarification of the comp
plan. Mike, you know, or should know, that an
appeal is to basically overturn a decision that
you don't agree with. It is not to clarify for you (at
the expense of the taxpayers) your seeming faulty
knowledge of the county's comp plan, which has
been in existence for years and which Judge
Davis had no problem in interpreting. If you want
to educate yourself, do it the old-fashioned way
- study the comp plan and then raise questions
in class on points you don't understand.
When you were writing your columns for the
News-Leader on PUDs and other developments,
you appeared to be firmly in grasp of the county's
comp plan. I leave it to others to explain your pres-
ent ignorance.
As far as the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs is concerned (your biggest issue),
Mike, do you really believe an appeal on Crane
Island will vanquish the DCA as you apparently
want? As a former lawman, you must be aware of
the lengthy legal procedures necessary to debar
the DCA from oversight of a town's development
aspirations. Again, your vote for an appeal based
on this issue is rather difficult to comprehend.
Contrary to Mr. Boyle's wistful assertion that
a small group of individuals were responsible for
overturning the county commission's erroneous
ruling, this litigation had the support of thou-
sands of his constituents. He would have known
this if he had attended the hearings where it was
standing room only and the halls were lined with
protesters against the unlawful expansion of
development on Crane Island. Taken as a micro-
cosm of county residents, one could conclude
the majority of his (at that time) prospective con-
stituents were adamantly opposed to the unlaw-
ful expansion of Crane Island and quite irate at the
chicanery of Mike Mullin (former county attor-


ney who now represents developers) to push it
through.
Additionally, if this writer and thousands of oth-
ers donated to support the litigation to preserve
Crane Island, we certainly do not want our tax-
payer dollars now squandered to overturn it
under the guise of an appeal to merely clarify it.
Mike, who do you really represent? Or do you
need clarification on that as well?
Patricia Fitzgerald
Fernandina Beach
Get the message
The recent article concerning Crane Island
("County to appeal ruling on Crane Island devel-
opment," Jan. 14)) and why the county com-
mission will appeal the ruling in an attempt to
increase the density of homes to be constructed
seems to me to be an inappropriate action for the
commission.
Furthermore, Mike Boyle's statement that
he is not interested in pleasing the most people
on this issue is politically insane. He and most of
the county commission still don't get the message
that the majority of the residents they represent
are tired of over building without concern for the
environment. They never try to correct the prob-
lems which they say were created by other com-
missioners that are now gone.
From my observation, the reason the com-
missioners were replaced is because they didn't
make the correct decisions on issues that con-
cern the people they represent. Why I believe the
commission action is inappropriate is that the
people that organized to seek a legal ruling to
block the increased development were giving
their time and personal resources.
Boyle and those on the commission that voted
to appeal the judge's decision are using our tax
dollars to extend this development issue. If they
had to spend their personal salaries or savings on
this issue I think it would be over with. The con-
tention that the owners of the property will make
an appeal may transpire and they may have a
right to do so. But why should the same citi-
zens who won the judgment be forced to pay, by
use of their tax dollars, and extend the battle
over this issue? I know Nassau County has all the
money they need to out spend a group of citizens
who only wish to keep our community reasonably
balanced.

Impact fees
I would like to affirm Harvey Slentz's recent
letter on Jan. 14 regarding the need for impact
fees on new homes. Mr. Slentz's letter was writ-
ten after the Nassau County Commissioners
voted on Dec. 22 to continue the moratorium
on impact fees for newly constructed homes.
Impact fees are a judicious way for local gov-
ernment to cover the cost of new roads, schools
and associated infrastructure that are necessi-
tated by new residents moving in.
It should be noted that when new construc-
tion does not have impact fees incorporated into
the price, you and I will pay for the roads, schools
and sewers that the new development requires.
Our future taxes will increase in order to subsi-
dize the increased costs. I have heard people
complain loud and strong about not wanting
their taxes to go up and here is but one factor in
why taxes will go up if we do not assert our-
selves on this important issue.
There is no need to stop growth or develop-
ment. If that were the case, this island would


only have Indians inhabiting it. However, respon-
sible growth management requires that we
assure that when we build a home we take into
consideration the impact that new home and its
residents will have on our fair island. Canceling
impact fees that developers pay will cause the
existing residents undue tax hardships. There is
no intent to place any hardship on developers or
new residents. However, is any of us so wealthy
that we would want to willingly give our money
(through increased future taxes) to developers
and new residents for services they need?
In addition, by taking away the cost of the
impact fee you are reducing the cost of the home
and thereby reducing the comparative sale price,
which has a negative impact on you when you
want to sell your home.
Although there are many things I disagree
with Commissioner Mike Boyle on, I must
applaud him in this instance since he was the only
county commissioner who voted to end the mora-
torium on impact fees.

VIEWPOINT/MALCOLM A NODEN/FERNANDINA BEACH


Shop local,

The downturn in the economy has caused
us all to review not only our own financial con-
dition but that of our family, friends and neigh-
bors in the community, whose lives and busi-
nesses have been significantly damaged or
disrupted. Our worst fears about what might
happen next seem to materialize with each
news cycle.
In response many have taken to practicing a
behavior known as "cocooning," which is a pop-
ular phrase to describe what happens when we
reduce our discretionary spending, stay home
and pull in the gangplank behind us. This
results in local and "big box" businesses losing
money, which then lay off employees or go into
bankruptcy. In turn this contributes to rapidly
rising unemployment, home and business
mortgage foreclosures, loss of government tax
revenues and a whole host of other related
financial and other events that accelerate the
downward spiral.
In the U.S. economy fully two-thirds of all of
the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is directly
traceable to consumer spending, and so when
that spending pattern slows down precipitously
our economy goes into a tailspin.
Even though we all understand this phe-
nomenon, we are skeptical about the motiva-
tions of, and very cautious about listening to,
the "experts" when they call upon us to recog-
nize that such behavior, self-protecting though
it is, also contributes directly to the downward
spiral in which the economy is headed. In
short, in a very complex and chaotic situation,
with many different though related causes, we
look to our own self-interest before all else. In
these tough times self-preservation is a power-
ful behavioral motivator.


but don't stand for bad service


However, some in our
community have responded
,,f - more communally to this cri-
S. ..- sis, and have begun the
search for a more responsi-
ble and effective pattern in
.. ^ their consumer behavior.
They have rediscovered an
old community support
Noden method that is one of the
most effective ways to help
change things for the better,
which is to make sure that we spend as many
of our dollars as we can in local businesses.
Despite the growing use of this positive
change, in recent days we have observed with
dismay the words and actions of some employ-
ees of several local businesses, in which their
level of service responsiveness seems to have
seriously deteriorated. Several times in the past
few weeks we have come face-to-face with surly
employees; the impact of their poor and often
incompetent service, and their generally nega-
tive attitudes, ironically perhaps, born of the
self-fulfilling fear of losing their jobs.
One recent event will serve to exemplify
this growing local attitudinal problem. On a
recent Sunday morning after church, we drove
to a well-known local restaurant. When we
arrived at the door a few minutes after 11 a.m.
we were brusquely told that breakfast service
ended at 11 and they would not serve us break-
fast. The young waitress then drove the point
home by acerbically noting that, "You should
have read our ad in the newspaper." With no
further comment she then turned on her heels
and walked away from us in an obvious huff.
This negative server attitude problem is not

confined just to our local community, nor is it a
new problem, but is prevalent in all areas of the
country. Read what Matthew Love of the
Honolulu Advertiser had to say on this subject
back in 2001. Consider that he too, lives on an
island where tourism is the lifeblood of their
economy.
"Our hotels and restaurants live and die
based on whether they can create satisfied cus-
tomers. As a matter of fact, our economy on the
whole would greatly benefit from better cus-
tomer service. Waiters can be, in a sense, good-
will ambassadors. When service issues arise,
who's to blame? Even with all the service night-
mares, it is not the waiter who is at fault; this is
management's responsibility. Hotels and
restaurants have a difficult enough time mak-
ing a successful go of it, and without proper
training of their service personnel, they can
never achieve their financial goals.
"Many service employers look only to the
immediate need for a warm body to do a partic-
ular task. They spend little time, if any, in train-
ing and t, -ud......- 1 . i,..ii . and when something
goes wrong, guess who's out of a job? You
guessed it: the poor minimum-wage employee.
This ineffective business style costs a lot more
money in the long run as well as tainting their
reputation."
So what to do? First, we should keep on
patronizing the many local restaurants, stores,


gas stations and hotels which have made it
clear that they welcome us and want to keep
our business and who have trained their
employees to understand that serving others is
not a measure of social inequality, nor servile
in its character, but a job that can be done
pleasantly and competently. After all, these are
the businesses, often owned by our neighbors,
which provide much needed local employment;
who also serve our visitors, and whose busi-
ness supplies and inventory purchasing stimu-
lates the entire local and regional economy.
However, we should not quietly accept sub-
standard service or keep silent when we are
treated badly. When things go awry, seek out
and tell the owner or manager. Make it clear
that you expected good service, as well as
strong value for your money. Never let your
normal politeness prevent you from complain-
ing clearly when your expectations are not met.
Yes! Much of our spending should be local, but
also it should be driven by our understanding
that keen competition among those who want
to sell us things, is the very bedrock of good
business.
The famous hotelman, Ellsworth M. Statler
(1863-1928), the founder of the Statler Hotel
chain, and benefactor of the School of Hotel
Administration at Cornell University, coined
the iconic phrase which has become the watch-
word of all those who serve, and which words
are engraved over the lintel of the Hotel School
at Cornell. "Life is service - the one who pro-
gresses is the one who gives his fellow men a
little more - a little better service."

ber from the School of Hotel Administration at

Ex-deputy's mom


gets probation


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader

The mother of a former
Nassau County deputy was sen-
tenced Thursday to two years of
probation after she, like her son
back in September, pleaded
guilty to grand theft.
Deborah Elizabeth Dwinnell,
55, was arrested in July on
charges of grand theft, dealing
in stolen property and dealing
stolen property over the
Internet. Police said Dwinnell
and her son, Danny Ray
Basham Jr., worked together to
steal items from a plumbing
company with which Dwinnell
was employed.
They then reportedly sold
the stolen equipment on the
Internet and pocketed the prof-
its.
In September, Basham
pleaded guilty to grand theft
and dealing in stolen property.
He was also sentenced to two


years of probation.
Dwinnell was also ordered
to complete 50 hours of
community service, pay
$348 in court costs, $100 to
the State Attorney's Office
and $5,792.35 in restitution to
the company jointly with
Basham.
Adjudication was withheld,
meaning Dwinnell technically
is not considered a convicted
felon.
Basham was employed as a
deputy with the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office from 2003 to
Jan. 23, 2007, when he resigned
after an investigation into pic-
tures and other content he had
posted on his MySpace web
page.
Dwinnell will not be prose-
cuted on charges of dealing in
stolen property, dealing stolen
property over the Internet and
an additional charge of grand
theft.

Man held


in armed


robbery
SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
A confidential informant
reportedly led police to arrest
James Cory Gibbs, 29, of
Jacksonville for the robbery last
week of a Fernandina Beach
cash advance business.
Deputies
say Gibbs was
picked out of a
photo lineup
by the inform-
ant who
reportedlywit-
nessed at least
some of the
Gibbs Jan. 15 rob-
bery.
An employ-
ee of the business received
minor injuries during the rob-
bery when she was struck in
the head with a gun, police said.
The incident occurred at
Speedy Cash Payday Advance,
1641 S. Eighth St., after the sus-
pect reportedly asked for an
application and then pulled a
gun on the employee.
She screamed for a friend
who was outside, and the sus-
pect struck her in the head
with the gun and demanded
money.
Her friend went into the busi-
ness after hearing her scream,
but said Gibbs kept telling them
not to touch anything.
After getting about $2,300 in
cash, the suspect left the area in
a two-door, dark green Acura.
Witnesses saw a second sus-
pect, a white male, sitting in the
vehicle as a passenger. The sec-
ond suspect was with Gibbs
when he left the area, according
to police.
Gibbs was arrested Friday
for robbery with a fire-
arm, aggravated battery and
assault with intent to commit a
felony.
Bond for Gibbs has been set
at $100,002. He is currently in
custody at the Nassau County
Jail. Detectives are still search-
ing for the second suspect.
Police are asking anyone
with information to contact
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office at 225-5174 or First Coast
Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-
8477.

2 injured after explosion in RV


Two people were taken to
Shands Jacksonville after a
propane gas explosion in their
recreational vehicle, and a sec-
ond Hilliard area fire left a fam-
ily homeless.
Nassau County Fire Rescue
responded to the fire at an RV
park on Scotts Landing Road
about 9:25 p.m. Jan. 12 after
neighbors said they heard an
explosion and observed the
two occupants of the RV lying
on the ground. One neighbor
went inside the RV and saw
flames, grabbed a fire extin-
guisher and knocked the fire
down.
Witnesses stated the neigh-
bors had moved their RV into
the park a week before from
Michigan.
According to the fire inves-
tigator, the RV's propane gas
heater was removed from the
cabinet and the gas line was
unscrewed and the open end


was taped over with duct tape.
The occupants were cooking
on a nearby gas stove at the
time. Leaking gas fumes may
have accumulated to the extent
that it caused a flammable
atmosphere near the open
flame, which caused the explo-
sion.
The RV was a total loss and
damage was estimated at
$20,000.
"Most of the damage to the
RV was from the explosion,
which detached the walls and
roof from the support struc-
tures," said Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper. "The fire was con-
tained to the cabinet area
below the refrigerator before
being extinguished by the
neighbors."
Nassau County Fire Rescue
also responded to a structure
fire in the 2700 block of Dunn
Creek Road in Hilliard about
9:20 a.m. Jan. 16.

Lloyd Dewitt Daniels and
his wife were warming them-
selves near a recently installed
manufactured fireplace in the

He told investigators they had
just used the fireplace three

Daniels kept the fire at bay

pulled down portions of the
ceiling to reveal active flames
hidden in the attic space near
the chimney.
Fire damage to the struc-

mated at $5,000 and the house
was uninhabitable. The
Daniels relocated to stay with

"The fire apparently started
from the improperly installed

for proper installation and
cleaned by a professional."

Man on probation for


child porn gets prison


SHANNON MALCOM
News Leader
Chad Manning Spivey, one
of three men arrested in con-
nection with a 2006 child
pornography case, was sen-
tenced to two years in a state
prison after he pleaded guilty
Thursday to violating his pro-
bation.
Spivey, 24, was sentenced to
three years of probation earlier
this year after he pleaded guilty
to a charge of child abuse.
Prosecutors had dropped child
pornography charges against
him in exchange for his plea
and willingness to testify against
his two co-defendants if neces-
sary.
According to a report of his
arrest, Spivey's probation vio-
lations include testing positive
for marijuana and charges of
driving with a suspended lic-


ense and fail-
ure to appear
in court on
that charge.
Spivey was
arrested in
August 2006
with David
Mashburn,
Spivey 47, and Walter
Hanzek, 45.
Both men
were sentenced to prison after
pleading guilty to certain
charges. Mashburn, already a
convicted sex offender, is now
serving an 18-year prison sen-
tence and Hanzek was sen-
tenced to two years in prison.
Spivey was held without
bond in the Nassau County Jail
since his Dec. 8 arrest for vio-
lating his probation. He will
receive credit for time served in
jail.

appeared to be a 'fight box,' a
'rape rack' commonly used to

used for treating wounds dogs
sustained from fights.
All but two caged puppies
were without food or water, and

Here's a real ish story...


Even an aquarium tank
can provide a nature
story or at least that's
what I found out
recently at Trailer Park
Collectibles in downtown
Fernandina Beach. On a day
of desultory Christmas shop-
ping, with other local leads
already tapped out, I ven-
tured into this store for the
first time. I left with a pur-
chase fit for my husband, and
better yet, with a story.
For there among the
diverse collection of all kinds
of curiosities for sale, I found


a 185-gallon freshwater fish
tank stocked full of healthy,
active fish. These fish looked
vaguely familiar. Quickly I
recognized the large dark
bottom dwelling plecosto-
mus, also known as the South
American suckermouth cat-
fish.
These fish begin their cap-
tive life in a fish store, and are
usually sold when they are
not much bigger than an inch
long. With their sucking
mouth and their enjoyment of
algae, these fish are masters
at keeping an aquarium
clean. But as the aquarium
gets cleaner, the fish get
fuller and they grow like the
weeds they consume. Those
in the fish tank at Trailer
Park Collectibles are more
than a foot long and still
growing.
In beautiful contrast to
these sedentary dark fish, a
variety of African cichlids
swam nearby, showing off
their pale colors and stripes.
According to the fish tank
owner, Brian McCarthy,
these cichlids regularly pro-
duce offspring, a sure sign of
their contentedness in their
life behind glass.
I wanted to know more
about this fish tank and these
fish. After talking to shop-
keeper Kerri Broad, Brian's
sister, I learned the back-
ground behind this tank and
why it looked familiar. It
turns out I've seen this tank
and its residents many times
before at the McCarthys'
Down Under restaurant
before it closed.
For most of the 26 years
that Down Under was in busi-
ness, the residents of increas-
ingly larger fish tanks enter-
tained diners. Sadly, the most
famous Down Under fish,
"Big Boy," didn't live to relo-
cate. "Big Boy" was a pacu, a
2 -foot-long vegetarian South
American fish resembling a


piranha. Just
a few
months
before the
restaurant
closed he
expired at 18
years of age
of old age-
related caus-
WILD es. Rarely in
WAYS captivity
does a fish
get to live
Pat out its full
Foster-Turley lifespan, but
due to the
care and diligence of the
McCarthys, "Big Boy" was a
true survivor.
"Big Boy" was a celebrity
at Down Under, and his pass-
ing did not go unnoticed.
According to Brian, the dead
fish was decked out in a
Down Under t-shirt, covered
with a banana peel - his
favorite food - and buried
beside the restaurant facing
his home tank in a funeral
attended by many friends and
family.
The freshwater fish main-
tained by the McCarthys
show the commitment need-
ed to responsibly keep these
pets. As the fish grow, they
need new tanks, and the larg-
er the tank the more costly to
purchase and maintain.
Many less responsible
aquarium owners do not go
the full route with their ever-
growing fish. Here in Florida,
many pet fish outgrowing
their digs get dumped into
our rivers and streams. The
$1,000 fine and possibility of
six months in jail for illegally
dumping exotic fish does not
deter them, and few spend
any time thinking about the
environmental consequences.
On a recent trip with
friends to visit Silver Springs
in Central Florida, the conse-
quences were there for the
viewing. Where once the


fabled view through the bot-
tom of glass-bottomed boats
yielded native fish of all hues
and shapes, now what mostly
is there are South American
plecostomus, large ones, up
to two feet long, lolling about
the bottom.
Non-native plecostomus
bother manatees, by sucking
algae off their backs and
causing the manatees to
spend precious energy evad-
ing this unwanted attention.
These fish also undermine
the integrity of the limestone
seawalls around the springs,
with their vigorous foraging.
And it's not only plecosto-
mus that are invading our
waterways, thanks to the irre-
sponsibility of some thought-
less aquarium owners. Giant
pacus are regularly caught by
surprised fishermen in many
of our rivers and streams.
African cichlids of many vari-
eties have also made them-
selves at home in Florida
fresh waters. As native
Florida fish become out-com-
peted by these larger and
more vigorous exotics, they
face the risk of extinction.
The larger ecological implica-
tions of the burgeoning exot-
ic fish populations still remain
to be discovered.
Keeping freshwater aquar-
ium fish is a great hobby
enjoyed by millions. If you do
keep fish, know what you are
getting into when you pur-
chase a baby quarter-sized
paca or an inch-long plecosto-
mus from your fish store.
Unless you are prepared to
emulate the McCarthys in
their commitment to respon-
sible fish-keeping, avoid
these eventual giants.
Florida's freshwater environ-
ments face enough chal-
lenges already without
adding to them.

Hornets prevail, topple Pirates 68-61


News-Leader I -


The Pirates hadn't lost to a county
foe in more than 25 straight games.
That reign came to an end Friday
night in Yulee.
The Hornets beat the Pirates 68-61,
a first for the new Yulee High School.
"I give Coach (Don) Burton and
Yulee a ton of credit," said Matt
Schreiber, head boys basketball coach
at Fernandina Beach High School.
"They were obviously very prepared
and ready for that game. It looks like
they've worked real hard and bought
into what he wants them to do. You
could tell from the start it was a game
that was important to them and they
were going to do everything possible
(to win). Our effort was there, but
maybe in some earlier games, things
have come to us a little too easy."
The Pirates struggled from the
perimeter, making just three of 30
three-pointers.
"We were 10 percent where we've
been shooting 35 percent from,"
Schreiber said. "I think a lot of those
shots were either rushed or forced.
We needed to be willing to make an
extra pass and it just didn't seem like
we wanted to do that."
Yulee led 10-9 after a quarter and
33-22 at halftime. Both teams put 16
points on the scoreboard in the third
quarter and FBHS outscored Yulee
23-19 in the fourth.
"Every time we might be getting
right back into it, they would just
make an incredible shot or some type
of play that would stop our momen-
tum," Schreiber said. "It was a tough
one for us. Never have we taken Yulee
lightly. I hope what we get out of this
loss is that, in tough games, we'll
depend on each other more. In the
long run, this could be a good growth
experience for us."
Patrick Garvin was the leading
scorer for the Pirates with 24 points.
He also had eight rebounds, two
assists and a steal. Zach Rocheleau

had 11 points and five steals. Carlos
Holcey chipped in seven points and
led in rebounds with 10.
"It was a funny game because we
were able to get things inside and did-
n't really want to settle on that,"
Schreiber said. 'That's not what has


gotten us where we are. We out-
rebounded them and took over 20
shots more than them and didn't turn
the ball over as many times as they
did. They defended really well and we
didn't take good shots. We end up on
the short end of it."

in the district) traveled to Trinity

homecoming and close the week at

Early forecast


need a fast sta


T he Arizona Cardinals are the first
nine-win team to reach the Super
Bowl since 1979, when the Los
Angeles Rams lost to the Pittsburgh
Steelers. While Las Vegas initially has
installed this year's version of the Steelers as
a 6 1/2-point Super Bowl favorite, I contend
that the Cardinals have a fighting chance
with a fast start similar to their last two play-
off games.
There is no doubt that Pittsburgh has a
more complete and physical team with the
ability to mash its opponents into submission.
But Cards' QB Kurt Warner seems to have
found some of his Super Bowl XXXIV magic,
completing 21 of 28 passes for 279 yards and
four touchdowns in Arizona's 32-25 win over
Philadelphia Sunday. Compiling those num-
bers against the top-ranked Pittsburgh
defense, however, will be a monumental task.
Warner and the Cardinals will need to
jump out to a big lead and early or I'm afraid
the terrible towels will be waving deep into
the Tampa night on Feb. 1...
University of Southern California head
football coach Pete Carroll believes that QB
Mark Sanchez made a mistake in deciding to
forego his senior year for the NFL and pub-
licly scorned the junior last week for "going
against the grain." While another year of
development in college would undoubtedly
improve Sanchez's skills and probably USC's
chance at a championship, his draft stock
isn't going to get much higher than it is right
now, especially after quarterbacks Colt
McCoy and Sam Bradford both decided to
return to Texas and Oklahoma, respectively.
Sanchez seems destined to be taken in the
first round and might very well be the first
quarterback drafted. Turning down that kind
of opportunity would be like ripping up a win-
ning lottery ticket in hopes of hitting a bigger
jackpot next year.
Sanchez absolutely made the right deci-
sion, no matter how long it takes him to
develop into a starting NFL quarterback.
Because that initial signing bonus should set
him up financially for life ...


: Cards will


rtin Tampa
Another player who made
the correct decision is
University of Florida
WR/RB Percy Harvin, who
will also enter the NFL draft.
As much as Gator fans want-
ed him to join QB Tim
Tebow and LB Brandon
Spikes as seniors on next
year's team, Harvin is pro-
jected to be taken in the first
SPORTS round and would have been
remiss to turn down the
TALK potential payday.
Considering the number
JOHN L. of injuries he has had to
CRAWFORD fight through while at
Florida, Harvin probably
feels fortunate to still be
considered a first rounder. I'm not so sure his
2010 draft stock wouldn't have plummeted
with another bum heel or tweaked ankle ...
The University of Florida basketball team
was able to knock off Auburn on the road last
Wednesday night, which is surprising consid-
ering the various preseason predications that
the Gators would once again be a middle-of-
the-pack SEC team.
Maybe even more amazing was Auburn
head coach Jeff Lebo's striking resemblance
to Colonel Klink from the famed old sitcom,
"Hogan's Heroes." If you're near a computer,
put them into Google Images and see for
yourself ...
Leonard Hamilton and his Florida State
basketball team improved to 15-3 overall and
2-1 in conference play Saturday and appear
primed to make the NCAA Tournament for
the first time in 10 seasons. Rest assured the
road through the ACC won't be easy, but six
more wins in the toughest conference in the
land should be enough to vault these
Seminoles into the Big Dance. A victory over
rival Miami tonight would be another great
stride toward that goal.

Luett's plus 4 claims blitz


With the temperatures and
wind chill factor for much of
the north being subfreezing,
it is almost snobbish or supe-
rior sounding to write of
moaning and groaning
because you had to play golf
in 50- and 60-degree weather.
Such were the circumstances
for the 56 players who took
part in the Wednesday blitz
and the 33 who braved the
cool temperatures to play on
Friday at the Fernandina
Beach Golf Club.
Individual honors on
Wednesday were claimed by
Larry Luett with one of the
lowest pluses ever, when he
had an 81 and plus 4 points.
Five players tied for second
and third at plus 3. They were
Tony Lopez (78), Jim
McFarland (97), David Mudd
(90), Rich Vredenburgh (84)
and Gerald Wilder (22).
An all-plus team came in
with the only decent winning
total as McFarland and Mudd
and their plus 3s were joined
by John Vanderhoof (82, plus
1) and Doug Wolfe (87, plus
1) to finish first at plus 8.
Lopez's plus 3 got help
from Larry Griner (94, plus 2)
and Charles Kicklighter (87,
plus 2), which was enough to
offset the minus 5 of Bob
Riley (89) to finish in a tie
with the team of Wilder (plus
3), Jim Roberts (77, plus 1)
Larry Gallo (89, even),
Claude Hartley (95, minus 2)
for second and third places at
plus 2.
A team total of minus 3
was good enough to claim
fourth place for Sammy
Alvarez (82, plus 1), Price
Poole (even-par 73, plus 1),
Freddie Boatright (83, minus
1) and Larry Hutchinson,
who had a 92 and minus 4.
The cooler and windy
weather on Friday held the
field for the blitz to 33 play-
ers. Once again individual
honors were won with a plus
4 with Larry Brauda (80) and
Charles Kicklighter (85) shar-
ing said honors. Two players
tied for third at plus 3, Claude
Hartley (90) and Doug Wolfe
(86).
With the small turnout,
the field was divided into
three-man teams. With
Kicklighter (plus 4) and Doug
Wolfe (plus 3) on the same
team, their scores were
enough that the minus 4 of
John Bray (88) did not knock
them out of first place at plus
3.
The only other plus team
of Hartley (plus 3), Jack
Croake (86, even) and Bob
Riley (86, minus 3) came in
second at plus 1.
Minus 3 was again good
enough for two teams that
tied for third and fourth
place. The teams were made
up of Jim McFarland (100,

even), D.D. Miller (97, even),
Bill Larrabee (95, minus 3)
and Brauda (plus 4), Allen
Sage (85, minus 2) with a
minus 5 score once again
making it on a winning team,
this time Freelon Pate (96).
There was no Saturday
Morning Breakfast Mixer
held as there was a
Fernandina Beach Men's Golf
Association step aside scram-
ble tournament scheduled for
the day.

Step Aside Scramble
Thirty-two men had
signed up to take part in the
Fernandina Beach Men's Golf
Association Step Aside
Scramble but one player had
to drop out. Thus the field
was made up of seven four-
man teams and one three-
man team.
The three-man team of
Price Poole, John Bray and
Ron Peterson tied for first
place with Larry Brauda,
Mike Lovejoy, Bruce Smyk
and Ed Lewis with a score of
66.
There was also a tie for
third place at 68 between the
teams of Tom Roberts, Bill
Abee, John Chastine, Kevin
McCoy and John Vanderhoof,
Jim Raffone, Doug Wolfe and
John Harvey.

BETH JONES
News Leader

The Lady Pirates suffered a loss Friday at
home to drop to 3-10 on the season. Fernandina
Beach High School's girls basketball team lost
60-35 to the Bolles Lady Bulldogs.
The Lady Pirates traveled to Callahan
Thursday to take on the West Nassau Lady
Warriors. The hosts won 55-31.
"The Lady Pirates played excellent for three
quarters," Landtroop said. "The first half was
fantastic. The girls were playing together, driv-
ing to the basket, playing aggressive.
"Down by nine at half, the girls got half of the
lead back by the end of the third quarter."
The Lady Warriors led 34-29.
"We began to struggle," Landtroop said.
"The girls kept playing hard throughout, but we


just had a hard time creating any offense. We
just need to work on closing out our games. The
effort and attitudes were where they need to be
and the girls played tough until the final buzzer."
Ebony Peterson led the Lady Pirates with
nine points, nine rebounds and three assists.
Mackenzie McBride scored eight points to go
along with nine rebounds. Raven Hardy chipped
in six points. Julia Belcher also pulled down
nine boards and had three steals.

The Bob Hope Chrysler Classic,
founded as the Palm Springs Golf
Classic in 1960, evolved from the
Thunderbird Invitational that was
held in Palm Springs from 1954 to
, 1959. Its format remains unique


among PGA Tour events, being played over five days on four different
courses. The tournament's biggest draw is the celebrity pro-am competition
which attracts some of the era's most famous celebrities. History was made
at the tournament in 1995 when the pro-am team of President Bill Clinton,
George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Bob Hope and defending champion Scott
Hoch teed up for the tournament's opening round. The event marked the
first time a sitting president played during a PGA tour event.

Sb "When it's breezy swing easy."
J How many golfers have heard this
old saying when it's windy out-
side? Let's get into just a little bit
more detail about this. What will
swinging easy do for you when the
( i Jwind is up? For one thing, it
increases the chances of solid contact creating a
more penetrating ball flight. For another thing, it
compresses the ball less causing it to spin less,
which also creates a more penetrating ball flight.
Notice the theme. A solidly struck ball with a more
penetrating trajectory is less affected by the wind.
Swinging harder when the wind is blowing is a
powerful instinct to overcome. But if you can dis-
cipline yourself to use more club and swing easi-
er it will have a wonderful effect on your ability to
control the ball in the wind.


Vijay Singh had surgery last week to repair a torn meniscus he suffered during last
month's Chevron World Challenge, but hopes to be back in action in the Pebble _ _
Beach Pro-Am starting on February 12. "The doctor says I'll be on crutches for a few *2 ' -
days and then I'll be okay," Singh, 45, said in a statement. "I don't consider this a big ' z
setback or anything. I think the knee will be much stronger in the long run and it is cer-
tainly better that it happened now compared to the middle of the season." Singh finished
in a tie for 27th in the Mercedes-Benz Championship but promptly withdrew from last week's Sony
Open and underwent surgery in Florida. He hopes to be back on the PGA Tour for the Feb. 12-15
Pebble Beach National Pro-Am."I should be out for three weeks and I am planning to play in the AT&T,"
he said. A three times major champion, Singh has triumphed 34 times on the PGA Tour.

Miles of ocean soon



closed to bottom fishing


Beginning Feb. 12,
approximately 100
square miles of ocean
will be off limits for
any type of bottom fishing for
recreational and commercial
fishermen. The area is locat-
ed just south of the Tuna
Patch, a popular fish haven
located right on the Big
Ledge, also called the
Continental Shelf. The closed
area is located right on the
Big Ledge and some 70 nauti-
cal miles southeast of the St.
Marys Inlet.
Last week the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration published
Amendment 14, putting a halt
for any type of bottom fishing
activities beginning Feb. 12.
Eight different areas of the
South Atlantic will be affected
by Amendment 14, including
some 529 square miles. The
closures include some 70 bot-
tom species, which disallows
shark long-lining by commer-
cial shark fishermen. The the-
ory is that dropping any bait-
ed hook may attract a strike
from any one of the protected
species.
While many deep-sea fish-
ermen make the long off-
shore run to the Continental
Shelf to target a wide variety
of trolling species, bottom
fishing is often a portion of
their expensive run to these
fishy waters.
"I always carry bottom
fishing tackle when taking a
charter to the Big Ledge,"
said Capt. Allen Mills, skipper
of the "Wahoo" charter boat.
"Big snowy grouper, gag
grouper and red snapper
stack up on the big ledge in
water depths from 80-300 feet.
I believe the snowy grouper
spend their entire lives living
on the big ledge, while other
species, including red snap-


per, sea bass
and many of
the grouper
species, will
migrate
inshore of
the big ledge
during their
life cycle."
Everyone
OUTDOORS is asking,
- ...--- "wHow are
TerryLacoss any of these
Marine
Protected Areas (MPAs)
going to be policed?"
Located some 60 miles off-
shore, policing this 100-
square mile area is going to
present a mighty big task to
marine patrol officers.
However, if you are a savvy
fishermen, you just know
there will be a solution to
policing these far offshore
waters for marine officers,
and the moment you drop a
baited hook and line deep into
the fishy waters of the MPA
zone, you just know someone
is watching.
This would be a federal
offense. This is why we have
a court system and judges
that set stiff fines for any
offenses handed over their
desks.
While many fishermen
believe the new no fishing
zone for bottom fishing inter-
ests will be good for allowing
a variety of reef species to
spawn and carry out their life
cycles, some fishermen
believe the eight new no fish-
ing zones are just stepping
stones for the government to
put more of our saltwater fish-
ing grounds off limits for fish-
ing.
A total of $31 billion was
spent by recreational fisher-
men during 2006 - $5.8 bil-
lion was spent on basic fish-
ing expenses while $25.6


billion was spent on boats and
similar fishing equipment.
Recreational fishermen are
now spending less money to
go fishing with the cost of
boat fuel rising this past sum-
mer to nearly $5 per gallon in
many coastal areas for diesel
fuel. Regular gas was selling
for just over $4 per gallon in
many of these same coastal
areas as well.
A party of six fishermen
targeting Northeast Florida's
Big Ledge may use well over
100 gallons of fuel to make
the 70-nautical mile run to
these fertile fishing grounds,
troll all day, then navigate the
run back to safe port.
Paired with the cost of bal-
lyhoo, ice, trolling lures and
other needed fishing essen-
tials for a 12-hour fishing trip,
the cost of the recreational
fishing charter to these same
deep water fish havens has
considerably gone up.
With this in mind, more
and more saltwater fishermen
are targeting close-to-shore
fish havens, bays and tidal
rivers and spending far less
money.
Many seasoned saltwater
fishermen are asking why
NOAA is closing bottom fish-
ing in areas that are so far off-
shore where very little fishing
activity is actually taking
place, especially by recre-
ational fishermen.
Capt. George Strait of
Mayport has been charter
fishing in these waters for 35
fishing seasons and claims
there is very little commercial
or recreational fishing going
on in the new MPA off
Northeast Florida while many
more seasoned saltwater fish-
ermen are wondering where
the justification is coming
from to close their fishing
waters.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2009 LEISURE News-Leader


Prepare for your new pet and enjoy


Bringing a new pet home
is an exciting time. With a lit-
tle preparation and knowl-
edge, the transition can be
smooth. But, getting off on
the wrong foot can be a set-
back that takes considerable
time and energy to undo.
Nowhere is this truer than
with housebreaking and
training. Once a pet starts to
routinely relieve himself in
the house, it is a lot harder to
break the habit. One of your
first stops after getting a new
pet will be to the pet store,
where you can pick up need-
ed supplies. In the case of a
pup, you will want to pur-
chase a crate. Crate training
is often misunderstood by
well-meaning pet owners.
What looks like a cage/jail to
us is in fact a sanctuary to a
dog. Remember, dogs are
den animals. They feel most
comfortable when in a small,
enclosed area, with their back
covered. To further empha-
size this point, often a dog, by
its own choice, will go into
the corner of a room to lie
down, or under the coffee
table.
Dogs also don't like to
relieve themselves where
they sleep, so a crate encour-
ages them to hold their waste
until they can go out. To fig-
ure out how long your pup
can be kept in a crate, take
the pup's age in months and
add one more month to it.
That gives you the number of
hours that a puppy can wait
before having to potty. For
example, a 3-month-old puppy
can wait 4 hours before being

Laurie the dog.
Buckley Leaving a
new dog,
especially a puppy, unsuper-
vised in the house is an invita-
tion for all kinds of trouble.
Crate training is the easi-
est and most successful
method of housebreaking a
dog. I strongly discourage pet
owners from using newspa-
pers or wee-wee pads in the
beginning. It only confuses
the dog with the message
that going in the house is OK.
Cats and kittens are obvi-
ously a lot easier to house
train. I strongly support the
idea of cats as indoor animals.
I have seen too many cats liv-
ing dangerous, unhealthy and
sometimes very short lives
because they live outside.
That being said, the indoor
kitty needs two litter boxes.
An extra box will prevent the
beginnings of a housebreak-
ing problem. Each box can be
kept in a different area of the
house. If for some reason the
cat can't get to one box, he
has an alternative. And keep
the box clean. Cats are fastidi-


ous animals and will stop
using a dirty box or one that
smells like urine. Show your
new kitten or cat the litter
boxes. For a kitten, place him
in the box and move his feet
in the litter. They will usually
take it from there.
New dog owners should
also consider training classes
for their new pet. Teaching
basic obedience is crucial to
having a long, happy life with
your new dog. This is true of
puppies and adult dogs. Even
if you've adopted an adult dog
that seems to be well-man-
nered, training helps to devel-
op the bond between you. It
also establishes you as the
leader. And group classes are
a great way to socialize your
new pup to other dogs and
other people.
Of course nothing is more
important to a new pet than
veterinarian care. All new
pets should be taken to the
vet within their first few days.
Puppies and kittens need a
series of vaccinations during
their first few months and
adult dogs also need regular
vaccinations. Dogs also need
to be tested for heartworms,
which can be fatal if left
untreated.
Your veterinarian is a good
source of information on
maintaining your pet's overall
health, diet, exercise, etc.
And of course, you want to
have an in-depth discussion
with your vet about the myri-
ad of benefits to spaying and
neutering.
Your new pet should also
be introduced to another pro-


fessional, the pet groomer.
Often, pet owners wait until a
pet is mature before bringing
them to the groomer. But like
most everything else, the ear-
lier your pet gets introduced
to the grooming process, the
easier grooming will be for
the rest of her life. Starting a
pet out early with just some
of the very basics of groom-
ing, i.e. brushing and comb-
ing, bathing and drying, nail
clippers, the noise and vibra-
tion of a clipper, can go along
way to making grooming a
stress-free occurrence in
your pet's life. And this is
true for both cats and dogs. A
cat that has been groomed its
entire life can be a pleasure to
work with. Grooming a cat
for the first time at the age of
two has the potential for
drama for everyone involved.
The first few weeks and
months with your new pet are
a special time that you will
always remember. It's up to
you if you remember it fondly
or with post-traumatic stress
flashbacks.
As always, I am more than
happy to answer any of ques-
tions about your pet, by
phone, e-mail or in-person.
