FPU's latest shock




Surging deposits


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Some Nassau County business owners got a nasty
surprise in the mail recently a letter from Florida Public
Utilities demanding a new security deposit, in some cases
more than $1,000.
Although all of FPU's commercial customers had to pay
a deposit to begin service, there are circumstances in
which the power company can charge an additional
deposit, said Mark Cutshaw, general manager of FPU's
Northeast Division.
"If someone has an existing deposit, and we feel like
based on their past payment record, another deposit is
due, we recalculate the total amount based again on that
average two-month bill, and we add that amount to the
existing deposit," Cutshaw said. "If a person's credit is
such that we feel an additional deposit is required, we do

assess that amount. But it's strictly based on their record
of paying their electric bill."
Some business owners, however, are crying foul on
that rationale. Their bills, they said, are paid on time.
"Basically I got this letter that said I had to come up
with $1,200 by the 12th of February and oh, by the
way, your regular utility bill is $1,000," said Linda

ACLU sues




local schools


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
The American Civil Liberties Union
of Florida filed a lawsuit Tuesday
against Nassau County Schools, clam-
ing that administrators unlawfully
denied students permission to form a
Gay-Straight Alliance at Yulee High
School.
"We just want the'club so that
straight and gay kids can get togeth-
er to talk about harassment and dis-
crimination against gay kids in an open
environment," said Hannah Page, a
plaintiff and student at Yulee High, in
an ACLU press release.
"The school is discriminating
against us and that's exactly the kind
of thing we waht to talk about and pre-
vent," Page said. "Other clubs and
groups are allowed to meet on campus
and we have that right too."


Bullying of lesbian, gay, bisexual
and transgender students in Nassau
County Schools "is a serious problem.
Plaintiffs Page and Jacob Brock, who
are gay, report that students have
threatened to beat them up based on
their sexual orientation, and both are
routinely called derogatory names at
school," according to the ACLU.
The Gay-Straight Alliance is a stu-
dent organization made up of straight
and gay students who wish to advocate
for an end to such intimidation and
discrimination. There are more than
4,000 such school clubs in the U.S.,
according to the Gay, Lesbian and
Straight Education Network.
The federal Equal Access Act
requires schools to grant access and
official recognition to such a club if the
school allows any extracurricular

County tables bid



to dun bad drivers


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader,
The Nassau County C,.'ml1sni..'n
tabled indefinitely Monday a proposed
ordinance that would allow the county
to bill insurance companies
or individuals for fire-rescue
response to traffic accidents.
Commissioner Danny
Leeper expressed doubt
about the ordinance, saying
he worried about the coun-
ty's ability to collect and the
"public relations nightmare"
that could result if the ordi- Leeper
nance passed.
"From the beginning, I've
had reservations about it, and I still
have some reservations about it," he
said.
State Farm Insurance agent Roy
lyrd of Fernandina Beach also spoke
against the proposal. "If this does go


through, it will probably end up being
:passed along to the customers in the
form of a rate increase," lie said. "And
who's going to determine fault in the
accident? The law enforcement offi-
cer? ... A law enforcement officer is
there to determine if anyone
broke the law. He's not to deter-
mine fault."'
"If someone runs a red light
and causes an accident, the
police officer can't say he's at
fault?" said Commission Chair
Barry Holloway.
"Sure, he can do that," Byrd
said. "But it's not always that
cut and dried."
The ordinance would provide
for billing the insurance companies of
at-fault drivers for costs associated with
responding to traffic accidents. If the

Rec center building


needs floodproofing


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City building officials found out last
week that the foundation for the $1.2
million Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center expansion had a design flaw,
and that the contractor failed to com-
plete paperwork required for flood
insurance. But according to City
Building Official Bob Sasser, both
problems have already been
addressed.
According to Sasser, contractor
Hashman Construction ofJacksonville
never submitted an elevation certifi-
cate, which is required by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency for
flood insurance. It was also found
that a slight flaw in the design caused
the foundation to be too low for the
flood zone on which it was built, says
Sasser.
Sasser says he asked about the ele-
vation certificate for the new founda-
tion after he did an initial inspection
and found the construction was locat-
ed in a flood zone. Soon after, it was dis-
covered that Hashman had not applied
for the elevation certificate.
After the discovery, Sasser says he
contacted FEMA for advice. FEMA
suggested one extra foot of flood-

FPU Continued from 1A
Hanawalt, owner of Amelia
Island Coffee & Ice Cream
and Go Fish on Centre Street.
Hanawalt said FPU expect-
ed a new deposit for the coffee
shop, which she has owned
for nearly a decade. "I called
the utility company and said,
'I've been a customer for nine
years and I've always been on
time.'"
'We've been in business for
25 years, and it's kind of ridicu-
lous when they do something
like this to us, if we're paying
our bills on time," said Emma
Leeper,'owner of the Ship's
Lantern on Centre Street.
Leeper said her store was hit
with a demand for an addi-
tional $1,400. "... It's very
irritating, especially when
you've been in business for 25
years. It's not like we just start-
ed doing business with
(FPU)."
Hanawalt said she felt that
FPU was charging the extra
deposits to counter lost rev-

groups to meet on campus,
the ACLU maintains.
"We are taking a stand
today because gay students
are entitled to a safe and
secure education. Gay and les-
bian students deserve schools
that heed the rule of law," said
Robert Rosenwald, an ACLU
attorney. "These students are
trying to bring a message of
equality and openness, and the
lesson they are being taught is
that Yulee High School admin-
istrators believe discrimination
against LGBT students is an
acceptable. policy.
Discrimination and harass-
ment by students will never
end as long as schools dis-
criminate themselves."


enues. Cutshaw admitted that
FPU has felt the effects of the
economic downturn as more
customers pay their bills late,
but said that extra deposits
were charged on an individ-
ual basis and not as a result of
an across-the-board revenue
drop.
The deposit must be made
in cash, or by surety bond or
a letter of credit. "The amount
of the deposit is strictly based
on what their average two-
month bill would be," Cutshaw
said.
Hanawalt, however, does-
n't feel that the payment
options give her much choice
at all. "What's your option? A
letter of credit meals you have
to deposit money in a CD with
their name on it, so what's the
difference?" she said. "The
lady on the phone did say I
could make payment arrange-
ments, which I'm going to
have to do, because I can't just
pull that amount out of a hat.
You have no'recourse. You feel
so powerless."


The ACLU seeks a prelim-
inary injunction to force school
officials to allow the club to
meet at Yulee High while the
litigation continues.
"I hope that being part of
this important lawsuit will open
up people's eyes so that they
can see that there is still a lot
of discrimination and we need
to sit down and talk about it,",
said Brock in the press release.
'The school is preventing us
from talking about anti-gay
bias, harassment and violence
and working together to pro-
mote tolerance, understanding
and acceptance of one another,
regardless of sexual orienta-
tion. That's just unfair."
The ACLU of Florida
recently won a similar federal
case when school officials in

ANGELA DAUGHTRY/NEWS-LEADER


Both Leeper and Hanawalt
were incensed that FPU chose
the current economic climate
in which to charge new
deposits. "This is not our
prime time," Leeper said. "It'll
be difficult for a lot of people.
I mean, a lot of people' have
already gone out of business.
And if you don't pay it on time,
it affects your credit."
"Why are they doing it
now? Because we're hurting,"
Hanawalt said. "... Our cost
just on the basic utility bill has
gone up. Go Fish has doubled.
It's insane. And my business
has been flat or down so
percentage-wise it's a lot high-
er."
Leeper said she felt that
FPU, in charging the new
deposit, showed no apprecia-
tion for a business relation-
ship that has lasted a quarter
of a century. 'They know who
we are, they know where we
are," she said. "We're not
pulling up stakes or leaving or
anything."

Okeechobee refused to allow

BUSINESS


'On the other side,' a brew


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Local restaurant owner Tim
Poynter isn't afraid of opening a
new businesses in tough eco-
nomic times because he's done
it successfully before. Poynter is
the owner of Caf6 Karibo on
North Third Street in the down-
town area, which he opened
shortly after 9/11.
His latest business endeavor
is Fernandina Beach's first
microbrewery, located next to
the original restaurant The pub,
which will be a distinct busi-
ness with its own ambiance and
menu, is called Karibrew.
Poynter says he borrowed
money to open the first restau-
rait one week after 9/11, and
admits that many people
thought it was a crazy idea.
But, he says, "My dad
always told me that in econom-
ic bad times, the best business
to be in is the beer and enter-
tainment business," says
Poynter. "We look at things as
the glass being half-full rather
than half-empty."
Originally from Cincinnati,
Poynter came to Fernandina
Beach about 10 years ago to
work for a toy developer. He
was not unfamiliar with the
restaurant business, however,
as his wife, Theresa, had oper-
ated a small lunch and dinner
business called the Production
Line Caf6 in Cincinnati for about
two years.
Poynter said that, for the
brew pub, he's" been working
with a North Carolina company
that has a patented brewery sys-
tem that is "a lot more mistake-
proof' than figuring it out on
your own. The beer recipes he's
learning have already won
regional taste competitions.
Karibrew will offer four fla-
vors of beer brewed on the spot

a Pilsner, a dark bock, a red ale
and a nut brown. Poynter says
the restaurant has also been
working on a name for its sig-
nature beer and has come up.
with a tremendous amount of
possibilities, but has yet to
choose one. Popular bottled
beers are also on the bar menu;
The bar setting of the pub
will be different from the caf6
side, says Poynter, which has
an eclectic menu of sandwiches
and entrees. "We like to con-
sider it affordable gourmet,"
says Poynter, who also noted
that the pricing has not changed
for several years and caters
mostly to locals.
"We sell our sandwiches
throughout the night," says
Poynter. "You can have a meal,
a glass of wine and tip for less
than $20."
The saloon side will have its
own menu of pub fare like ham-


burgers and fries,'plus a few
specialty items like soft-shell
crab sandwiches. For now,
Karibrew will open at 4 p.m.
until Poynter's staff can "wean
into" opening for lunch. Poynter
says he hop9s loyal customers
who have gotten to know the
cafe will "come to the other
side."
And as if opening a new busi-
ness wasn't enough of a chal-
lenge, Poynter says he is also
planning to run for one of two
city commission seats up for
election this year.
Poynter says he is running
for commissioner because he
would like to see "a more effi-
cient government" and that he
is "for growth, but intelligent
growth." He also says that,
although city staff was "very
cooperative" when he was open-
ing his businesses, he did have
some issues with the process.

"It was just too many people
touching the same piece of
paper," he says. "Refining the
process could be a great sav-
ings, emotionally and fiscally."
Poynter says he would also
love to see the downtown water-
front finally developed, and
South Eighth Street leading into
the city getting a facelift. "The
government needs to 'incen-
tivize' people to want to come
here," he says.
"One thing I do know how to
do in my experience with past
businesses is to get things
done," says Poynter. "This is
the type of thing the city needs.
... That's what pays everyone's
salaries. We need to be proac-
tive to bring people downtown."
Poynter said he employs
about 25 people. He and his
wife, Theresa, have four chil-
dren, ages 19 to 25.

At least we're not


a poster child for


this bad economy


It's one of those times
when you'd rather not
have a visitor even if it
is the president of the
United States.
A town in Florida has
dubiously been named as
one of several stops on
President Barack Obama's
whirlwind tour to promote
his monumental stimulus
package. Obama is visiting
several hard-hit areas for
instance, Elkhart, Ind. dec-
imated by the economic
downturn.
Unfortunately, another of
the stops is near Lehigh
Acres, located outside of
Fort Myers. The once-thriv-
ing town is an example of
why a stimulus plan is need-
ed'to jump-start our econo-
my.
An article from The New
York Times headlined, "In
Florida, Despair and
Foreclosures," addressed
the downfall of Lehigh
Acres. A town created by
and symbolic of the housing
boom is now a poster child
for the economic malaise
that has followed.
Home to many workers in
the construction and real
estate industries, the town
has been devastated, with
housing prices falling 80 per-
cent off their peaks. Instead
of the sounds of hammers
and saws from the heyday,
you have the sights of people
foraging for food and dis-
carded items.
It is not unlike areas out-
side boom cities such as
Charlotte, N.C., and Las


Vegas.
These are
makeshift
towns



and their
families
STEVE'S lived for
MARKET cheaper
PLACE than they
could in the
cities they
Steve Nicklas worked.
It's no
wonder the Florida town was
chosen alongside Elkhart,
known for building recre-
ational vehicles instead of
houses. Like the housing
market, the demand for RVs
has fallen off a cliff in recent
months. Unemployment in
Elkhart exceeds 18 percent.
In Lehigh Acres, one in
four residents received food
stamps in December. It is a
far cry from a prosperous
period in the 1980s when
busloads of potential buyers
would be brought in to view
the available houses.
In recent years, houses
doubled and tripled to more
than $300,000 in price.
Houses would be sold two
and three times in a few
months, without anyone
even moving in. Jobs were
plentiful, secured by a red-
hot real estate market.
There has been a 180-
Sdegree change. Housing
prices declined to $100,000 -
,and then to half of that as
foreclosures exploded, and
unemployment reached the
double-digit levels.
Some years ago, then-
President Bill Clinton visited
Amelia Island. Times were
better then. His visit here.
included a lavish vacation at
White Oak Plantation near
Hilliard.
It was applauded as
another string of evidence
that Amelia Island had been
discovered. How else would
Syou describe a place a U.S.
president would visit?
This time its different. In
this visit, Obama will hold a
town meeting closer to Fort
Myers, but his emphasis and
examples will be about the
suburbs, notably Lehigh
Acres. The visit will not be
applauded, but appreciated.
Hopefully, something
good will come of it. And,
years from now, everyone
can fondly recall the year of
2009. When a notable visitor
came to town.
Steve Nicklas is a finan-
cial advisor who lives on
Amelia Island. He can be

Flash Foods gouged gas customers


TALIAHASSEE -Attor-ney
General Bill McCollum
announced Tuesday that his
Economic Crimes Division has
reached a settlement with Flash
Foods, Inc., resolving allega-
tions of price gouging during
Hurricane Ike. Flash Foods, Inc.
is a convenience store and gaso-
line retail chain with 16
Northeast Florida locations,
including Nassau County.
"As people are fleeing in
Florida from storms, drastic
price hikes are unacceptable,
especially for something as
essential .as gasoline," said
McCollum. "These cases are
important not only to protect
our citizens, but also to remind
every member of the business
community that Florida simply
will not tolerate these violations
of the price-gouging law."
Under the terms of the set-
tlement, Flash Foods will reim-
burse consumers who were
overcharged for gasoline at a
Florida Flash Food's store
between Sept. 12 and Sept. 20;
and will also pay $40,000 to the
American Red Cross National
Disaster Relief Fund.
The total amount of the set-
tlement will be approximately
$82,000. The company fully
cooperated with the state's

OPINION



VIEWPOINT/SEAN MCGLL/AMELIA ISLAND-FERNANDINA BEACH-YULEE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE



It's a good time to change your lifestyle


February is health and
wellness month at the
Amelia Island-
Fernandina Beach-
Yulee Chamber of Commerce.
This month we will focus on
the health of the individual to
help ensure a healthy busi-
ness. I'd like to take a few
moments to try to motivate
everyone to do something dif-
ferent this month.
Everyone reading this has
a different level of fitness.
Some of us lead very seden-
tary lifestyles where we move
from lying on the bed to sit-
ting behind a desk to sitting
on the couch at night. Others'
are complete "gym rats" who
live for a morning workout,


quick jog at lunch, and an
hour at the gym in the
evening.
No matter what your level
of fitness is, I'd like to chal-
lenge everyone to celebrate
their fitness success by doing
only one thing differently dur-
ing the month.
Disclaimer: I am not fitness
professional. The AIFBY
chamber will be hosting
events and programs as well
as a Health and Wellness
Expo on Saturday, Feb. 28,
that will give in-depth details
from industry professionals
on a variety of health and well-
ness topics.
These challenges are com-
mon sense and are just a


reminder of
little things
that everyone
can do to
improve their
,individual fit-
ness.
SIf you live
McGill the sedentary
lifestyle, it is
important to
start slowly and set realistic
goals. My goal for you for the
month of February is to put
down the remote control.
Eventually I would encourage
you to get on a more formal
exercise program, but start
with something easy. When
you want to change the chan-
nel, get up off the couch and
turn the channel by pressing
the button on your TV or
cable box. I know this might
be difficult with fancy satellite
receivers and digital cable
boxes. My recommendation
then is to leave the remote
next to the TV and force your-
self to get up to use the
remote.
Another easy change for
those of us who a lead fairly
sedentary life is to just start
walking a little bit more.
Parking at the back of the


parking lot when you go to the
grocery store will force you to
be just a little more active
every day. If that seems easy,
challenge yourself to walk the
dog more. If you don't have a
dog, walk with a friend who
has a dog. Youll be amazed at
how fast the time flies by
while you are chatting with a
friend and getting exercise. If
you don't have any friends
with dogs, the Humane
Society and animal shelter are
always looking for volunteers
to walk those dogs waiting to
find homes.
For those of you who are a
little more active, set a goal to
participate in one of the many
sporting events in Nassau
County. There are a variety of
running events that are
almost monthly. Having a goal
to complete an organized
event can encourage you to
get outside on those days that
you would rather just sit on
the couch.
Running events are not the
only things going on in the
county. There are several
organized bicycle rides includ-
ing the Katie Ride for Life on
April 18. This event has all dis-
tances of rides for every level
of cyclist.
For water lovers, the Ed
Gaw Memorial Open Water
Swim on May 23 challenges
participants with either a 1-
mile or 3.1-mile open water
swim.

Health.Wellness Month
It's Health and Wellness Month at the Amelia Island-

chamber will sponsor health-related "Health Matters" educa-
tional seminars each Friday at 8 a.m. the chamber, 961687
Gateway Blvd., Suite 101G. Admission is free for chamber
members; $5 for non-members.
Reservations are required. RSVP to 261-3248 or

lenge yourself, the Amelia
Island Atlantic Coast Triathlon
and the Ameliaman Triathlon
have you swim, bike and run
throughout the island.
I do have a challenge for
those of you that think any of
the above is easy. I know
there are those of you who
might run more than 40 miles
per week, or bike for hours on
end, or swim before the sun
comes up, or spend every
waking hour lifting weights.
My challenge to those individ-
uals is take a day off!
Proper health and wellness
includes a proper balance of
all activities. Rather than for-
mal training each and every
day, challenge yourself to do


something with friends and
family. It can still be active,
such as kayaking or hiking.
Mental fitness is as important
as physical fitness.
These are just some of the
many changes you can make
to change your lifestyle. I chal-
lenge everyone reading this to
set one goal for the month of
February regarding health
and wellness and celebrate
your success when you
achieve it.

COMMUNITY THANKS


Generous benefactor
The Cub Scouts of Amelia Island Pack 353
would like to thank our generous benefactor
who anonymously bestowed upon us a donation
of $1,500 to fund our excursion to Cumberland
Island.
The money donated allowed our pack to
finance all expenditures of the adventure. We
extended the adventure with a ferry ride to and
tour of Cumberland Island's Plum Orchard The
scouts were fascinated by the' houM.4 auid grounds
and listened intently to the.National Parks serv-
ice guide as she detailed the life and times of
Cumberland's history.
For most scouts, the journey to the island by
ferry was a thrill of a lifetime. Add to that mem-


ories of the haunting stone ruins of the
Dungeness estate, gnarled oaks, larks twitter-
ing in the trees, lizards scurrying underfoot and
hordes of armadillo, raccoon and possums crash-
ing through camp, bold and unafraid, or the sight
of a horse, standing just off the road. Cumberland
Island was pulsating with life!
The Cub Scout Law ends with "The Cub Scout
gives goodwill," meaning a scout looks for ways
to help others.
I can only assume that our benefactor was
himself a,scout and remembers.fondly the good
times of fellowship and adventures-while scout-
ing.

SVIEWPOINT/JOE GERRTY/FERNANDINA BEACH



City does 'spend, spend


It amazes me that newly hired high-level
city employees immediately see the need
to hire more employees. City Manager
Michael Czymbor needed 10 new posi-
tions in his first full year to maintain the level
of service that citizens of our fair city "deserve
and demand." The next budget year he need-
ed four more new employees. He got them all.
Now our new fire chief, who has been here
all of three months, has determined that we
need another new ambulance. He suggested
that we apply for a grant so the city's share of
the cost would only be $79,000. And by-the
way, in order to use the second vehicle, we will
have to hire four more employees at a recur-
ring cost to the city of about $250,000 a year,
which will not be covered by any grant, but the
taxpayers of Fernandina Beach.
The justification for the purchase is the fact
that Nassau County responded to over 300
calls in the city limits last year. During a rather
poorly prepared presentation, the chief admit-
ted that he had no idea how many calls the city
responded to outside city limits, but seemed to
think that it was more that 300. Mr. Czymbor
endorsed the expenditure, saying this was the
level of service the citizens "deserved and
demanded."
Concerning the level of service citizens
deserve and demand, Mr. City Manager, we
deserve and demand transparency in our gov-
ernment, such as five-year garbage contracts
negotiated in the open by a bid process, not
behind closed doors and presented to the com-
mission just days before the existing contract
expires.
After a six-month vendetta on your part to
force the retirement of former Fire Chief
Danny Leeper (now County Commissioner
Leeper), we deserve and demand a chain of
command to be in place, not a call by you to
911 to locate the fire department. And after a
tropical storm, we deserve and demand debris
to be picked up, not sitting in our yards for
weeks while you determine if we have a con-
tract for storm debris removal in place. Instead,
we have a city manager whose first priority is
to spend every nickel he can get his hands on,


UI if


Gerrity


and uses concern for citi-
zens as his justification.
Mr Czymbor, if you
were really concerned
about citizens, you would
have put together a budget
that did not pass along the
first increase in the tax rate
in 10 years. If you were
really concerned about the
citizens, you would have
driven your two-and-a-half-
year-old car for a year of


two more, and not demanded the city purchase
you a new vehicle.
Just in case you are unaware, Mr. City
Manager, the country is in the worst economic
recession since the Great Depression. Job loss-
es are approaching record highs. People are
unable to pay their mortgages and are being
forced out of their homes. Fernandina Beach is
not immune to these problems. One of our
biggest taxpayers, the mill on the north end,
just filed for bankruptcy. Many homes within
city limits are going through foreclosure pro-
ceedings, and the rest of us are experiencing
dramatic declines in the value of our property.
Employees in small businesses within the city
are foregoing raises this year in order to keep
their jobs. Yet the city under your "leadership"
goes marching on to the beat of spend, spend,
spend.
The ambulance issue reminded me of the
fairy tale about the Pied Piper (Mr. Czymbor)
and the lemmings (commissioners Ken
Walker, Eric Childers and Mayor Bruce
- Malcolm). With little or no discussion from
that side of the table, the lemmings voted 3-2 to
follow the recommendations of the Piper. It
was almost like the decision was already made.
Kudos to Ron Sapp and Susan Steger for being
in touch with the economic realities and voting
no.
Mr. Mayor, we need leadership from you.
You.need to take off your top hat and put your
sash aside and work for the people of
Fernandina Beach. We need a leader, someone
that is in touch with the needs of the citizens


id, spend'

and is aware of the local economy, not a mascot
or the Monopoly man. We need you to do the
job you campaigned for, and lead this city.
I just read an article about the city manager
of Sanibel, who voluntarily cut her pay by 15
percent. Her rationale was, "I believe that dur-
ing these stark economic times managers have
a moral obligation to lead in sacrifice." That is
true leadership, something we are missing
with this city manager and the majority of our
commission.
While I would not want or expect our
employees to take salary cuts, as a taxpaying
citizen I do expect them (especially the city
manager and city commission) to lead by
example and be in touch with economic reali-
ties and make sacrifices when possible.
Between the city and county fire rescue
departments, there are two ambulances on the
island, with a third vehicle just on the other
side of the Shave Bridge. We have a mutual aid
pact with the county so when our resources are
overburdened, the county helps out, and we
help the county when they are in a similar situ-
ation. No one mentioned the old ambulance
the county was going to let us use as a backup.
What happened to that vehicle?
The county commission, acting on
Fernandina Beach citizen complaints of double
taxation for sheriff services and our police
department, is actively seeking legal options to
take over public safety in the city. This is not
the time to be growing our bureaucracy. It is
time to be looking for ways to find economies
of scale and ways to contain costs, not spend
more.
And believe me, if the city manager had
been encouraging fiscal responsibility since he
got here, we would all be in much better shape
and experiencing a little less pain. It is time for
the city manager to show us that he knows
how to be a manager, and not manage to spend
every nickel he can find.
By the way, the Pied Piper stepped aside,
and the lemmings marched into the ocean,
never to be seen again.
Joe Gerrity is a former mayor and commis-
sioner of the city of Fernandina Beach.

or not. I do, however, question why as a psy-
chologist he feels the need to express his con-
cerns on this specific issue.
Mr. Todd writes of the "promiscuity, anony-
mous rendezvous and bizarre sexual acts (which)
are common" among homosexuals. Perhaps the
psychologist would like to expand upon .how
these are behaviors atypical oftheir heterosexual
peers. While your concern regarding the Gay-
Straight Alliance may be professionally justified,
I wonder why you are not compelled with the
same passion to dismantle the institutions of
homecoming and prom which so plague our
youth. I would venture to guess that within a typ-
ical school there are more acts of heterosexual
promiscuity on these two nights alone than an
entire year of the homosexual students' sexual
deviances.
I also must ask for clarity on his statement
regarding "the emergence of an addictive com-
ponent" within homosexual individuals. Perhaps,
as a heterosexual, I don't grasp exactly what you
are implying, but I will be the first to admit that
I have found in my life that "normal" sexual activ-
ities tend to be quite addictive as well.

Re: The Feb. 4 Viewpoint by Dennis Todd.
It's hard to believe that in this day and age that
Dennis Todd, a school psychologist, could be in
a position of authority and hold such repudiated
and proven unscientific views about homosexu-
ality. Many of his allegations are either wrong
(relying on 70-year-old researchpo longer seen
as valid by the vast majority of the mental health
community) or biased.
The National Association for Research &
Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) and Dr.
Charles Socarides (whose son ironically is gay),
one its founders and mentioned as authority for
Todd's views, is a thoroughly discredited group
closely aligned with fundamentalist Christian
groups such as Focus on the Family and its Love
Won Out ministry which responds to homosex-
uality from "a biblical view."
Another psychologist involved with NARTH
is Dr. Gerald Schoenewolf, who theorized that life
in Africa was savage and those brought to
America as slaves "were in many ways better
off." Another illustrious NARTH member, Dr.
George Alan Rekers, has testified in court in
hearings dealing with homosexuality that he
believes the Bible to be infallible (Earth created
in six days some 6,000 years ago and so on) and
that homosexuality is a sin. In one case, a circuit
court judge ruled that it ". cannot consider
his testimony to be credible nor worthy of form-
ing the basis for public policy."
Major organizations that reject Todd's and
NARTH's views are the American Psychiatric
Association, the American Psychological Associa-
tion, the American Counseling Association, the
National Association of Social Workers, the
American Academy of Pediatrics, the American
Associations of School Administrators, the
American Federation of Teachers, the National
Association of School Psychologist (which one
would assume Todd is not a member of) and the
National Education Association, to name a few -
no lightweights in the field of mental health.
As to the efficacy of the Nassau County School
Board winning its suit brought by a student and
the ACLU, the chances are nil. The ACLU has
fought this same fight many times over and has
always prevailed. Not only will the school board
lose, it will pay the ACLU's legal fees, money
badly need for our schools. I suspect the suit has
more to do with the superintendent not wanting
to appear to be caving in to the "homosexual


crowd," something that could come back to haunt
one at election time.
All these kids want is a group to promote
understanding. How could anyone be against
that? Let's end this stupidity and let them form
their group.

Not'a gay club'
The Gay-Straight Alliance is not a "gay club"
and the media needs to stop spinning it that way.
It is a club that bridges sexual orientation as a way
to deal with and prevent homophobic violence and
harassment.

Cruise terminal benefits
With this country's economic downturn,
municipalities are going to have to look at any and
all resources possible. If this means changing
one person's "vision of the future of Fernandina
Beach," then do so. Our merchants are suffering,
our restaurants are suffering. The island as a
whole would benefit from a cruise terminal, not
just a cruise ship port of call.
As one commissioner stated, she had been on
a cruise ship that went in to a small town. Was it
a U.S. port? How,does she know they did not shop
or eat? Most cruisers carry large bags off ship and
bring their purchases back in them. They spend
big dollars to take tours. As a cruise terminal, you
reap the benefit of providing tours, golfing and a
multitude of other offerings.
My husband and I have been cruising since
the early '90s, doing one or two a year. We have
learned that when people drive to their cruise
port, many arrive at least one day prior to depar-
ture. Some fly in the day before, shuttle to the
location and then may need taxi service. This
means there is a need for lodging, food, strolling
down beautiful streets with shops, and purchas-
ing gas when leaving town. It may also mean
tourists who would not necessarily visit
Fernandina Beach would see what a jewel we
are. Make them feel welcome, and they will want
to come back and to tell their friends and family
about our little spot of paradise.
Is this selling Fernandina Beach? Maybe. We
are, in part, a tourist town. We need to be a des-
tination town to more people.
There is room on this island to have a cruise
terminal and still keep the small-town atmos-
phere and the mills. No, we do not want Smurfit
to close. The city commission needs to "think out-
side the box." How about wooing Jaxport? Get in
the running with Mayport. Their loss could be a
substantial gain for Fernandina.
SEsther Schindler
Fernandina Beach
Citymarina
City commissioners, you want to see down-
town prosper, my suggestion would be to expand
the city marina and do whatever you can to get
money for the marina. The city marina is what
keeps the downtown merchants in business.
I know that transient boaters stop here twice
a year because they love our town, and the friend-
ly, welcoming staff at the marina. A lot of transient
boaters stop here for the first time, and they love
our town and marina so much they will stay for
a week. During their stay they will eat at differ-
ent restaurants downtown that week, and buy
stuff from different shops. On weekends boaters
come from St.Augustine, Jacksonville, St.Marys
and other parts of Georgia to tie up at our city
marina. Some visit for a couple of hours, and
some spend the day here. While here for the day
or just a couple of hours they spend money at
restaurants, bars and the shops downtown.
The city marina is way better for downtown
than having a cruise ship terminal. Those people
on a cruise aren't going to spend money down-
town. Just some food for thought.

then put air back into it,
Our economy has gone flat and we continue
to pour money into it with no mention of what
caused the flat or any attempts to fix the problem.
Could it be any or all of the following?
A war started for questionable reasons which
has cost us trillions of dollars and we have gotten
rid of Sodom H.
A nation where 1 percent of the people owns
some 23 percent of the wealth.
A nation where the "swill eaters" known as the
CEO's and top executives of our publicly owned
corporations help themselves to pay packages
up to $70 million per year.
A nation where most anything can be obtained
by the right amount of money placed in the right
hands by lobbyists or contributors.
A nation where you can get a year in jail for a
$50 robbery and a CEO can give away $4 billion
in bonuses and only gets fired.
We like to think we are a capitalist nation but
we have become a "thieverist" nation.
Maybe we should fix some of these things
before pouring more money into the problem.

Prescription plan
Nassau County's participation with NACo.,' a
national for-profit company, is a start at trying to
reduce the costs of prescription drugs. However,
if "prescription plan free" sounds like it is too
good to be true, it probably is.
1My wife, dog and I all take medications, so
when the pharmacies started our handing out the
lists of what is included, I gathered up'a few to see
how they could help our family and our son, who
has a lifelong illness that will continue to require
medication for the rest of his life. I was not sur-
prised to see there was only one medication on
the list that could help; Rimadyl, for our dog
Harley.
My corporate career of 29 years was spent
working for three national hospital and insur-
ance companies; the last 15 with the state's largest
health insurer. This program is a business built
to make money. However, it does show there is
room lots of room for the customer, you and
me, to really get a break on drug costs.
Fifteen years ago, drugs represented about 6
percent of the health care dollar. Now it is well
over 30 percent of every dollar spent. In gener-
al, hospitals, doctors and insurance companies
fight for the remaining 60-70 percent of your dol-
lar.
When I went to fill a prescription three
weeks ago, the gentleman in front of me handed
over a credit card to pay the additional $200 out-
of-pocket cost for his medications. I was next in
line and asked why one of my medications cost
$75, and I have insurance. The young lady indi-
cated that I really should be paying $773 for the
90-day supply. I wanted to say something, but I
believe the young lady sincerely thought I should
be grateful.


I am not a pharmacist, I am a businessman
who knows our health care system will continue
to crush many of us for years to come. I also
know that a monthly report from NACo showing
a "savings" is easy to twist into shape. I also know
that the drugs you see on TV are not on the list
and virtually all the drugs prescribed for people
over 40 are not on the list either. Our incoming
president indicated this is one of his top priorities.
It was for the last three as well. Let's hope for a
better outcome.

'Political stunt'
Having been a business owner the greater
part of my life there is not one person in the state
of Florida that would wish for government over
regulation less than myself. However, our State
Rep. Janet Adkins' promised bold action to slash
our state's regulatory power over commerce in
the state without any real specifics strikes me as
little more than a freshman political stunt.
We all agree that our economy has deterio-
rated to a degree that most of my generation
would not have imagined. However, economists
by and large agree that much.of it was due to a
lack of oversight and the repeal of regulations in .
the banking and economic sector. Rep. Adkins
should know most of Florida's regulatory policy
was put in place to protect citizens against fraudu-
lant or dangerous practices not to punish honest
business owners. Much of the Florida economy
is based on the homebuilding and tourism indus-
try. The wholesale slashing of 25 percent of busi-
ness regulations will do little to uplift either of
these.
Perhaps she would be serving our district
better by supporting ourgovernor in his quest for
federal support. The little secret is that if we can-
not balance the state budget it will lead to deep
cuts in state services or deep increases in our
state tax structure and again this came from
bold action that led to cuts in regulation and over-
sight.

Economic stimulus
As a lifelong teacher, I know personally how
badly the economic stimulus plan needs to be
passed.
The access of health care coverage alone is
reason for passage of the bill.
No one knows better than I do how important
health care is for children and adults who have no
health care through no fault of their own!
If the jobs saved in this bill do not happen, the
outcome of the poverty as a result of people out
of work will be a crisis.
It needs to be passed now! It is the right thing
to do to prevent disaster!
Politics is at the forefront of the opposition!

FEMA urged to update coastal flood maps


University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Loss of life
and destroyed property could
be avoided if the Federal
Emergency Management Agen-
cy replaced current flood maps
with ones containing high-res-
olution land surface elevation
area and if the agency used up-
to-date modeling techniques.
So says a new FEMA-com-
missioned report from the
National Academy of Sciences/
National Research Council.


Peter Sheng, a University of
Florida professor of coastal engi-
neering, was one of the chief
scientific contributors to the
report.
"We're calling for new maps,
and we're also calling for FEMA
to update their technology,"
Sheng said. "Their current
methodology is very old."
FEMA uses flood maps to
set flood insurance rates, regu-
late development and inform
those who live in the "100-year"
floodplain of potential hazards.


FEMA's Map Modernization
Program of 2003 to 2008 result-
ed in digital flood maps for 92
percent of the continental U.S.
population. Most live in areas
that had outdated or no maps.
However, after a $1 billion
investment, only 21 percent of
the population has maps that
meet all of FEMA's data quality
standards, the National
Research Council said
SThe research council com-
mittee, the NAS Committee on
FEMA Flood Mapping Accura-


cy, collected and analyzed infor-
mation on selected streams in
test states of Florida and North
Carolina and on the economic
costs and benefits of creating
new digital flood maps in North
Carolina.
The committee's report con-
cludes that the costs for improv-
ing flood maps including ana-
lyzing flood-related data and
updating regulations would
be outweighed by benefits.
These include not only more
accurate flood maps, which


would help reduce loss of life,
property, and businesses, but
also niore efficient planning and
response for emergency serv-
ices and preservation of natural
functions of floodplains.
"Academics have developed
new models and new technolo-
gies that lead to more accurate
predictions," Sheng said, adding
that the agency currently uses
a simple, one-dimensional
model to forecast wave action
combined with storm surge.
"We are recommending they


start doing a two-dimensional
surge-wave model," he said.
He said the updated models
will not necessarily cause flood
zones to grow or shrink, but
rather that predictions will be
more accurate.
"The uncertainty comes
from the topological data and
the way you do modeling, and
we are trying to remove the
uncertainties," he said. "In some
places, the projected flood levels
could go higher, while in other
places, they might go lower."

Back on the pier


How quickly time flies,
except, I guess, if you are a
pier fisherman. For those peo-
ple inconvenienced by the
yearlong closing of the Fort
Clinch fishing pier, it may
have seemed like a long time.
But for me, wow, a year has
passed already, and the pier is
open again..
On one recent cold Sunday
morning a couple weeks after
the "soft opening," I decided
to check it out. It wasn't the
restoration work I was inter-
ested in, or the fishing oppor-
tunities. For me, it was the
birds.
Wintertime here brings
with it a host of birds escap-
ing the colder weather fur-
ther north, Some of the birds
wintering here are the same
species that live here year
round, just more of them.
Take the black skimmers, for
instance. Any walk on the
beach any time of year yields
sightings of these short-
legged red-and-black-beaked
birds with their contrasting
black backs above white bel-
lies. In winter, though, these
birds are as common as the
gulls they share the sand
with.
Walking from the Fort
Clinch beach access to the
pier I was careful to follow
beach bird etiquette and stay
at a respectful distance from
the skimmers, gulls and
terns, walking in a smooth
pace parallel to them, to keep
from disturbing them. On
cold days like this one was,
each disrupted flight off the
beach involves a loss of the
warm layer of air under their
feathers, and a loss of energy
requiring extra fishing expe-
ditions to make up. My goal is
to enjoy the birds, not harass
them.
Finally, taking this longer
than necessary route, I
reached the pier. From the '
parking lot to the end of pier
it's nearly a half-mile, a long
stretch of boardwalk jutting
out into the sea. Beside the
pier all along its length and
for another mile or more,
large granite boulders form a
jetty, protecting this side of
the channel, mirroring anoth-
er set across the way. Another
jetty made of concrete bor-
ders it along part of its length.
On this particular cold day
I had the pier to myself. As I
walked its lepgti.J..dntired.

fishermen in a smaller boat
navigated through the scene
enjoying their own winter
Sunday. One intrepid fisher-
man walked far out on the
concrete jetty bordering the
boulders, defying sanity it
seemed to me, but I'm no fish-
erman.
For the first quarter mile
of my stroll along the pier, I
only saw two birds close up. A
ring-billed gull, one of our
most common resident's,
perched on the rail on one
side of me, and a bit further
along a lone ruddy turnstone
puffed up from the cold
perched on the other side.
And then I found what I
was looking for. Down near
the end of the pier, on the
massive jetty rocks beside it,
dozens and dozens of ruddy
turnstones gathered on every
flat surface. These birds are
here year round, but only in
winter, in their dull plumage,
can we see so many of them,
biding their time till the
weather warms up drawing
many of them further north
to breed.


In and amongst the turn-
stones were smallish gulls, of
some species I'm not expert
enough to identify in their
winter plumage. And probably
in and amongst all of these
birds were also a few purple
sandpipers. Purple sandpipers
are a rare treat here in
Florida. These turnstone-
sized birds winter here, but
unlike the rest of the sand-
pipers, they do not winter fur-
ther south. Birders from all
over Florida flock to the Fort
Clinch pier for a chance to
add these birds to their life
lists.
I can't say that I saw any
purple sandpipers on this par-
ticular day, but I enjoyed my
stroll on the pier regardless.
Looking out on the bird-cov-
ered boulders I could imagine
myself far from here, on a
New England shore where
the boulders originated or
maybe even along the rocky
coast of Alaska. The weather,
unusually cold for our area,
helped set the stage.
I know I will be back to
walk the pier again this winter
in search of the illusive purple
sandpipers. And I'll walk it
too, in the summer to feel the
breezes, and in the spring and
fall as well. Every day along
the pier there are new sights
to behold and, if you are a
fishermen, fish to catch. Now
that the pier is'open, this
close encounter with the sea
beckons the explorer once
again. Come on out yourself
to Fort Clinch State Park and
give it a try. You won't be
sorry.

house fire in Yulee


Nassau County Fire Rescue
rescued three pet dogs after
they responded to a structure
fire in the 86000 block of
Meadowwood Drive in Yulee at
9:51 p.m. Friday.
Nassau County 911 dispatch
received the emergency call
from a home alarm monitoring
company, which relayed the
message of smoke detector acti-
vation in the living room.
Engine 30 arrived on scene
within eight minutes to see
smoke through the front win-
dows in the 3,500-square-foot,
two-story residence.
No occupants were home at
the time of the-fire.
Firefighters made a forcible
entry through the front door
and attacked the fire in the
kitchen.
Primary and secondary
searches were performed and
three adult dogs were found
near the kitchen. Two of the
dogs were unconscious and all
three were brought to the
front yard by NCFR firefight-
ers Rob Widdows, Bill Davis
and Matt Perry where oxygen
rehabilitation was given to the
animals.
"Within a few moments the
dogs were resuscitated and
Nassau County Animal
Services was summoned to
transport the family pets to a
nearby veterinarian for obser-
vation," said Fire Chief Chuck
Cooper. "After examination at
the veterinarian's office, the
pets were transported back to
the family to receive affection
from the caring family."
The cause of the fire is unde-
termined, according to the fire
investigator.

Probation violation
A Fernandina Beach man
who served time in prison after
he was arrested in connection
with a child pornography case
in August 2006 was arrested
Friday after a deputy saw him at
a store with two children.
Walter Joseph Hanzek, 46,
was arrested for violating his
probation for the conviction of
child abuse.
Hanzek was sentenced to
two years in prison, with credit
for time served, in February
2008 after he pleaded guilty to
child abuse; he had since been
released from custody.
According to a report of his
arrest, one of the conditions of
his probation was that he is to
have no contact with minors.


According to the report, a
Nassau County deputy saw
Hanzek with two children, a boy
and a girl, both approximately
three or four years old.
The deputy did not specify
what store he was in when he
saw Hanzek, but said the two
children were in a shopping cart
being pushed by Hanzek.
Hanzek is being held with-
out bond at the Nassau County
Jail.

Fernandina Beach police
used a stun gun and a baton on
a 41-year-old Fernandina Beach

vision inside a house that was
not his.

The resident of the house in
the 1300 block of South Fletcher
Ave. called police after he found
Johnson inside his house; the

there. That's when, according to
a police report of the arrest, the
victim went to a nearby hotel
to call for help.
Police found Johnson inside
one of the bedrooms of the
home and, not knowing
whether or not he was armed,
drew their guns and ordered

insist he was inside his own
house, and he fought as police
attempted to handcuff him.
Police used a stun gun once on

ing the struggle.
Police say neither weapon
had much effect on Johnson; it
reportedly took about five min-
utes to get him handcuffed.

Nassau County Jail in lieu of
$502 bond.
Boys robbed
atgunpoint
Two boys told police they
were robbed at gunpoint of a
can of soda Friday afternoon as
they were walking home from
school.
The victims, an 11-year-old
and a 13-year-old boy, both of
Fernandina Beach, told police a
male approached them and
asked for the can of Mountain
Dew one of them was drinking.
The victim said when he asked
why, the suspect "pulled out a
gun and pointed it at him and
demanded the drink."
Neither boy was injured.
The police report does not give
a description of the suspect. The
incident reportedly happened
near Citrona Drive and Hickory
Street.

Volunteer arrested
A volunteer firefighter for
the Hilliard Volunteer Fire
Station was arrested Thursday
for allegedly attempting to sell
a stolen video camera.
Joseph Hutchins, 30, of
Jacksonville reportedly was


keeping the Sony video camera
in his locker at the department
A witness who is acquainted
with the victim told police
Hutchins offered to sell her the
video camera for $150.
The woman asked to see it,
and Hutchins let her look at it;
she then memorized the serial
numbers and sent a text mes-
sage to the victim with the num-
bers. The victim said the serial
numbers were the same as her
stolen video camera, so she con-
tacted police.
Hutchins reportedly told
police the victim's daughter, a
juvenile, gave him the video
camera, but the victim's daugh-
ter denied it and Hutchins was
arrested for dealing in stolen
property.

6 months


in jail for


child porn

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A Yulee man was sen-
tenced Thursday to six
months in the Nassau County
Jail followed by five years of
sex-offender probation after
he pleaded guilty to three
charges of possession of child
pornography.
Dwayne
Richard
Bliffen, 47,
was arrested
in October
after investi-
gators report-
edly discov-
Bliffen ered child
pornography
on the
Internet linked to his com-
puter IP address.
According to Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy
Seagraves, investigators ini-
tially discovered the comput-
er IP address belonging to
Bliffen distributing picture
and movie files containing
child pornography in July.
The day after the initial dis-
covery, investigators discov-
ered that 64 of the 432 files
being shared by Bliffen's
computer were "indicative of
child pornography," Sea-
graves said.
Detectives seized the com-
puter from Bliffen's home
after obtaining a search war-
rant and analyzed the con-
tent; according to Seagraves,
several pictures and video
files containing child pornog-
raphy were found, including
images of minors involved in
sexual acts.
In addition to the jail time
and probation, Bliffen was
ordered to pay $348 in court
costs, $100 to the State
Attorney's Office, $150 in
restitution and $322 in other
fines. He was ordered to
undergo psychosexual coun-
seling, and he will be desig-
nated as a convicted sexual
offender.

Long delayed

murder trial

set for June
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

A June 15 trial date has
been set for a Fernandina
Beach man accused of mur-
dering his 67-year-old room-
mate in 2003.
The trial had been sched-
uled to begin in October, but
was postponed.
Randall Julian Powell, 38,
is charged with murder,
armed robbery and grand
theft of an automobile in con-
nection with the death of his
roommate, Gerald Edwin
Fair.
Fair was found dead on
Oct. 29,2003, in his home on
First Coast Highway. Police
said he had been dead for
days when his body was dis-
covered.
Powell was arrested two
months later, on Jan. 8, 2004,
and he was charged with
Fair's murder.
Police believe Powell
killed Fair and stole money
and his vehicle. The cause of
Fair's death was blunt force
trauma to the head, according
to the Jacksonville Medical
Examiner's Office, but a mur-
der weapon was never found.
Powell has been in cus-
tody at the Nassau County
Jail, being held without bond,
since his arrest five years ago.

Pirates eliminate Warriors, advance to Friday's semis


BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Pirates are in the semifinals and the
Hornets played Tuesday for a ticket to
Friday's games.
Fernandina Beach High School's boys
basketball team (24-2 overall) is hosting
the District 4-3A tournament this week
and the Pirates advanced to Friday's semi-
finals with a 74-48 win over West Nassau
Monday.
"It was a tough game," said Matt
Schreiber, FBHS coach. "Playing some-
one four times, something you always fear
is you beat them three times and they beat
you. ... We hit a little stretch there in the
second half where we were not as com-
posed as we should have been.
"I was real proud of the way we came
out in the second half ... made them at
least have to earn it."
The Pirates led by just two at halftime
and, 23 seconds into the third quarter, the
Warriors knotted the game at 26-26. The


score was tied twice more in the quarter
before Fernandina took the lead for good
thanks to a three-pointer by senior Jake
Brogdon with 3:27 left in the third.
"They've really improved this year and
they're going to be a tough team to reck-
on with next year and in future years,"
Schreiber said of the Warriors.
Patrick Garvin led the Pirates on the
scoreboard with 18 points. He also pulled
down six boards and had five steals. Carlos
Holcey scored 13 points and had four
assists. Zach Rocheleau and Tai Alford had
nine points apiece. Rocheleau also had five
assists. Terin Dallas had six rebounds.
The Pirates (the No. 3 seed and 7-1 in
the district) play Friday against the winner
of the Bolles-Yulee game Tuesday. Yulee is
6-2 in the district and the third seed.
Trinity Christian (the ninth seed) defeat-
ed eighth-seed Baldwin Monday, but the
reward was facing No. 1 seed Ribault (8-0
in the district) the next night in the quar-
terfinals.
The Pirates play in the semifinals at 6


p.m. Friday. The other semifinal is at 7:30
p.m. The district championship game is
slated for 7 p.m. Saturday at Pirate Gym.
The Pirates wrapped up the regular sea-
son Thursday at home with Bishop Snyder.
FBHS outscored the Cardinals in every
quarter and went on to win 78-53.
A trio of Pirates were in double figures
Garvin had 13 points (along with two
steals) and Rocheleau (four rebounds,
seven assists) and Brogdon (five rebounds,
five assists) had 12 points apiece. Dallas
and Holcey had four steals each.
"It was a big night for (seniors) Jake
(Brogdon) and James (Russell)," Schreiber
said. "They are two guys that have meant
a lot to the program and I think the pro-
gram has meant a lot to them too.
"Jake had a brother that played. There
was always a uniform with Jake's name on
it. James had two brothers that were great
basketball players but he never developed
an interest in it until later on. It's just inter-
esting to see the way the two of them devel-
oped through the program."

Tai Alford tacks on two points for the Pirates in Monday
night's win over West Nassau in the district tournament.


Pirate wrestlers Tudor, Moore


.1 crowned district champions


BETH JONES
News-Leader

A pair of Pirate grapplers
are district champions after
Saturday's District 3-1A tour-
nament at Fernandina Beach
High School.
FBHS senior Donnie Moore
pinned Raines' Kenneth Bynum
in 2:38 in the 215-pound final
to clinch the district title.
Moore's record stands at 30-3.
Teammate Jordan Tudor, a
junior, defeated Stanton's Travis
Higginbotham by pin in 3:34 in
the 140-pound final. Tudor is
21-4 this season.
"We are extremely happy
with the performances of
Jordan Tudor and Donnie
Moore," said Mark Durr, head
wrestling coach at FBHS.
"Jordan has been one of our
hardest workers all year in the
practice room and on the tour-
nament mat. He is strong,
aggressive, yet very smart on
the mat.
"We are ecstatic we have
one more year with Jordan. He
is a great kid to be around and
makes the attitude of the team
better because of his attitude.
"We were confident as was
Donnie about his result. Donnie
has an excellent shot at going to
state and doing some special
things once he gets there."
Both advance to Saturday's
regional tournament in Brad-
ford County. The top four in
each weight class qualify for
the region.
Also advancing in the 140-
pound weight class are West
Nassau's Benjamin Walls
(third) and Yulee's Justin Love
(fourth). Walls (20-5) defeated

said. "We feel this is the mark
of the character of a Pirate
wrestler; what will you do after
facing adversity."


Teammate Sean Watkins
lost by pin to Jackson's Bryan
Clark in the 152-pound final to
take second place. WNHS's
Nathan Skladany was fourth.
"Sean has been extremely
solid for us all year and is anoth-
er one who improves the mo-
rale of the team with his work
ethic and positive attitude,"
Durr said. "All of these guys
minus Donnie will be back next
year. We feel we will be even a
stronger team next year."
Garrett Wright of West
Nassau was third in the 160-
pound weight class.
FBHS senior Adam Thoma-
son lost to Raines' Danny Jack-
son in the heavyweight final.
Episcopal won Saturday's
tournament with 199.5 points.
The Pirates were second with
131. West Nassau finished sev-
enth with 59 points and Yulee
was eighth with 42.5.
"We were pleased with the
way our wrestlers performed,"
Durr said. "We had five weight
classes not wrestle due to ill-
ness or skin condition, so to
get second with only nine
wrestlers was one positive."


UT's Forrest'Kiffin had better listen up to Bubba


famous Forrest Gump;
University of Tennessee head
football coach Lane Kiffin is obvi-
ously "not a smart man." Therefore, I
shall forevermore (at least in this col-
umn) refer to the coach as "Forrest."
I know this story has been reach-
ing out and smacking you in the face
since Thursday, however, I'm com-
pelled to weigh in on the 45-second or
so video clip that will undoubtedly be
referred to as the beginning of the
end of Forrest's marriage to
Tennessee.
In a nutshell, Forrest, while speak-
ing at a gathering to celebrate a so-so
recruiting class, publicly accused
University of Florida head football
coach Urban Meyer of cheating.
Forrest told the anticipating audience
that Meyer broke NCAA rules by call-
ing Nu'Keese Richardson while the
recruit was on an official visit to UT.
Turns out that calling the kid wasn't a
violation at all, which prompted an
angry response from Florida Athletic
Director Jeremy Foley and ultimately
a lame attempt at an apology by


Forrest, who was
later reportedly
heard receiving
advice from his
friend, Bubba.
"Hey, Forrest,
I'm gonna lean up
against you, you just
Slean right back
against me. This
way, we don't have
SPORTS to sleep with our
heads in the mud,"
TALK said Benjamin
Buford Blue, or, as
JOHN L. his friends call him,
CRAWFORD Bubba. "You know
why we a good part-
nership, Forrest?
'Cause we be watching' out for one
another. Like brothers and stuff. Hey,
Forrest, there's something' I've been -
thinkin' about. I want to offer to read
that big ol' NCAA rules book to you
tomorrow so you won't embarrass
yourself no more."'
I And while your at it, Bubba, you
might want to remind Forrest that his
new team finished second to last in
the SEC East last year, while Meyer's


won conference national titles for the
second time in three years. Oh, and a
little reminder to Forrest about his 5-
15 record as a head coach wouldn't
hurt either.
Seriously, can this guy really be as
stupid as he comes off?
"Stupid is as stupid does, sir."
Pipe down, Forrest. You had plen-
ty of time to talk Thursday and we all
heard how that went.
I mean, even the brash Steve
Spurrier waited until he had some
hardware under his belt at Florida
before mouthing off to this degree.
Forrest has no hardware. His biggest
claim to fame is that he is the son of
long-time NFL and now UT defensive
coordinator Monte Kiffin.
With all due respect to the elder
Kiffin, who has earned his reputation
as one of the better coaches in the
game, whoop-tee-doo. That hardly
means Forrest will morph into his
dad and win in the toughest college
football conference in America.
Case in point, my dad has been a
business manager all his life. That
doesn't mean I am qualified to run a
major corporation just because he


took me along on "Bring Your Son to
Work Day."
Some sports columnists and radio
personalities are taking the other side
and praising Forrest for "reviving the
Florida-Tennessee rivalry." But isn't a
rivalry supposed to be competitive?
The Volunteers have lost four in a
row to the Gators and 13 of the last
19. And no amount a gibberish from a
guy who probably dressed up like
Vanilla Ice when he was trick-or-treat-
ing at 14 years old in 1990 can affect
what has happened on the field since
then.
The bottom line is, Forrest's
mouth has already written a handful
of checks that his backside won't be
able to cash. And to attack the charac-
ter of a coach whose jockstrap you
could not carry is, well, just not very
smart.
Hey, Forrest. I think I hear Jenny
calling.
"Run, Forrest, run."
It's a little too late for that.

Drew DeAngelo, William
Hunt, Adam Buechler and

'We went down a goal early,

rible field," said Joshua Dunn,
head boys soccer coach at Fer-
nandina Beach High School.
The Pirates (18-8-1) played
at Bolles Tuesday in a regional

it," Dunn said.

Hornets return just two starters for 2009


BETH JONES
Nevws-Leader

High school baseball teams will soon
be in action. The regular season opens
next week.
The Hornets, who went 16-11 last
season and finished fourth in the dis-
trict, get a taste of what lies when they
travel to Hawthorne for a preseason
tournament this weekend. Yulee takes
on Gainesville-Eastside at 7 p.m. Friday
and takes on the host at 1 p.m. Saturday.
First pitch of the regular season is Feb.
16 when the Hornets host Robert E.
Lee.
"We are very young and inexperi-


enced this season," said Will Minor,
Yulee High School head baseball coach.
"We have only two returning starters
back and no starting pitching back.
With that being said, the coaching staff
is very excited because this has been a
great bunch of guys to work with since
the summer. They have been working
extremely hard and the seniors have
shown great leadership this whole off-
season."
Th6se two returning starters are
senior second baseman Josh Cassidy,
who hit .358 with 29'hits, 26 runs, 14
RBIs, and just three errors in 27 games
last season, and sophomore third
baseman Andrew Minor (.390, 32 hits,


21 runs, 21 RBIs and nine stolen bases
in 27 games).
"Our most promising up-and-com-
ing regulars, who should start on var-
,sity, are senior left fielder Garrett Callis,
senior first baseman and DH Matt
Malone, senior outfielder and pitcher
Michael Beasley and senior pitcher and
utility player Philip Nelson," Coach
Minor said.
"We' are especially young on the
mound, led by senior transfer Philip
Nelson. After Nelson, our pitching staff
is made up of two seniors, two juniors,
two sophomores and one freshman.
"This is the start of the third year of
this program and I couldn't be any hap-


pier with how far we have come in three
years. I really believe that with the m
of solid young players we have and th
leadership already shown by the old,
players in the program, this could b
the start of a very special team for tt
next several years.
"We will be very young and inexp
rienced, but we have many high-cha
acter guys who will do things the rigl
way on and off the field, and will pl
hard every game win or lose."
The Fernandina Beach High Scho
Pirates played Tuesday in a preseason
tourney in Palatka. The Pirates pl
again Friday. They open the regular
season at Baker County Feb. 17.

Hooters Tour makes


stop on Amelia


Island March 2-8


For the first time ever, the
National Golf Association's
Hooters Professional Golf
Tour, presented by Hooters of
America and Naturally Fresh
Foods, is coming to Amelia
Island Plantation for The
Amelia Island Plantation NGA
Classic presented by Valley
Crest. The event will take
place March 2-8 on the Oak
Marsh Course.
"We are extremely excited
to bring the NGA/Hooters
Pro Tour to a facility and com-
munity with such a great rep-
utation and commitment to
competitive golf," said
NGA/Hooters Tour President
Robin L. Waters. "This golf
course will test all the aspects
of our players' abilities and
we look forward to a great
start to our 2009 season."
Oak Marsh played host to
the 1991 PGA Section
Championship and 1992
Society of Seniors
Championship. Numerous
resort tournaments are also
played there. Oak Marsh has
been included in GolfDigests
prestigious list of the 'Top 75
Resort Courses in the U.S."
and Amelia Island Plantation
is a Golf Magazine "1996-2004
Silver Medal Golf Resort."
Oak Marsh was also selected
by Travel & Leisure golf as
one of the "Florida's 50 Finest
Courses." '
"Amelia Island Plantation
is extremely excited about
the opportunity to showcase
one of our four golf courses,
our resort and Amelia Island
with a professional golf tour-
nament consisting of tomor-
rows PGA stars," said-Amelia
Island Plantation Sports Sales
Manager.Bob Kessinger.
"We would love for this to
become an annual event and
begin another professional
golf tradition in Northeast
Florida."
A portion of the proceeds
from The Amelia Island
Plantation NGA Classic pre-
sented by Valley Crest will go
to benefit Communities In
Schools of Nassau County, a
private, nonprofit organiza-
tion that connects resources
from public and private sec-
tors with at-risk students.
They utilize the power of part-
nerships to serve students,
schools and communities.


The total purse will be
$200,000 with $33,566 going
to the winner.
During tournament week,
there will be a Qualifier on
Monday for 10 spots into the
event, a Hooters Store
Scramble Monday afternoon,
a junior clinic hosted by pros
of the Hooters Tour Tuesday
afternoon, a Pro-Am
Wednesday that gives ama-
teurs a chance to play with
the players along with four
fierce days of competition by
the future stars of the PGA
Tour.
The NGA/Hooters Tour is
the third largest men's 72-
hole professional golf tour in
the country, behind the PGA
and Nationwide Tours, and
boasts alumni like 2007
Masters champion Zach
Johnson, 2003 PGA champion
Shaun Micheel, 2003 British
Open winner Ben Curtis,
2003 U.S. Open winner Jim
Furyk, two time U.S. Open
winner Lee Janzen, British
Open and PGA champion
John Daly and British Open
winner Tom Lehman, PGA
Champion David Toms, 2003
Tour Championship winner
Chad Campbell, 2004 and
2005 Reno Tahoe Open win-
ner Vaughn Taylor and TPC
winner Craig Perks to name
just a few. All told, the
NGA/Hooters Tour's alumni
have an incredible 10
"majors" to their credit. The
NGA/Hooters Tour has
helped more than 100 profes-
sionals acquire their PGA,
Senior PGA and Nationwide
Tour cards. In fact, 38 percent
of the players that earned
their 2009 PGA Tour card,
and 41 percent of the players
that earned full exempt status
on the Nationwide Tour start-
ed their careers on the
NGA/Hooters Tour.

the course was open for play. As the

took part.
As so often happens the last few play-

1 ity when we hit too many balls.
Here are some suggestions in
order to maintain flexibility and
keep your muscles in use.
Regardless of your age, partici-
pating consistently in a golf-specific exercise
program can greatly improve your game. A
golf-specific conditioning program consists of
resistance training, cardiovascular condition-
ing, and functional flexibility. Walking, biking,
stair-stepping, and running are examples of
cardiovascular exercise. For flexibility, try
reaching your hands to the ceiling and stretch-
ing to your sides a couple of times each day.
Tilting your head and neck back and forth and
side-to-side are also very common exercises.


The San Diego Union-Tribune, citing an unidentified person with ties to the Woods .-
family, reported that Elin Woods gave birth for the second time. They had a _
daughter, Sam Alexis, in June 2007 on the day after the U.S. Open. Woods did not
have an announcement about the birth on his Web site, where he reports his news.\ ,- ..
Neither his agent nor his spokesman immediately returned messages seeking com-\
ment. He wrote in a newsletter last week that his return to golf depends largely on the
birth of his baby, "which is due pretty soon." "That takes precedent over anything I do golf-wise,"
Woods wrote. "Elin, Sam and I are very excited for the new baby to arrive, although that's when the
real lack of sleep begins." He is expected to return to the PGA Tour before the Masters, possibly as
early as the Accenture Match Play Championship on Feb. 25.

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


A storage unit is beginning to lookpretty good


W hy can't we throw
things away? Is it an
American thing? People
in other parts of the
world live in smaller homes with
way less stuff. They seem happy and
live a simpler life. Why can't we?
The ultimate evidence of our
obsession to save things is the
plethora of storage unit facilities that
seem to pop up overnight. Perhaps it
is some kind of alien plot. Big,
square corrugated metal boxes
devoid of personality and full of
what? Little green people?
Did you ever stop and wonder
what is in all those storage units?
Kind. of scary. Every once in a while
the news reports that an abandoned
storage unit is opened because the


rent has not been
paid. They find all
kinds of things
including human
f bodies. Maybe
there are more stor-
age units in Florida
.. because people
move from the big
house up North
FROM and find it hard to
THE part with the accu-
PORCH mulatfon of a life-
time. If the housing
crisis gets worse
Dickie maybe the storage
Anderson units will offer an
alternative? The
ultimate condominium. We would
learn to live like honey bees.


Many people pay well over $100
per month to store .items that are
barely worth that. Friends report it is
well worth it to have it out of sight
and delay any decision regarding its
final destination. Yes, we had one at
one time. It was a proud day when
we either tossed, dropped at
Barnabas or absorbed the contents.
The Big Guy and I are planning a
Lifestyle change. We hope to sell our
too big house and move into some-
thing smaller, a one-story, easy-living
walk-away. It will happen. Hopefully,
sooner than later. With our goal of a
simpler life will come a major con-
frontation: Us and our stuff.
We are trying to shed some of the
accumulation of a lifetime. My kids
don't answer my calls when they


know I am trying to pass my prob-
lem to them. Lots of our stuff is in
our garage, crammed into floor to
ceiling shelves. When the Big Guy
and I try to deal with the overwhelm-
ing inventory it can get tense. Very
tense. Stuff is personal.
"Why are we keeping all those
jars of sea shells?" he will ask.
I don't answer, just glare and,
eventually, turn and ask him about
the three toolboxes and several hun-
dred jars of screws, nails, hooks and
things that defy imagination. Big
Guy is the love of my life but not
because he can fix anything. We call
our fix-anything 24-7 handyperson,
Dave, when we have a problem. Big
Guy has not hit a nail or screwed a
screw in this century.


He would be quick to point out
that the garden tools look pretty dirt
free and clean. Seems the yard serv-
ice takes care of most of our
yard/garden needs. Touche.
In the Big Guy pile are all kinds of
products that clean and polish cars.
When was the last time ... better not
go there.
We agree on some things and find
a certain degree of pleasure in reduc-
ing our glacier of "stuff' just a little.
The fact remains we are collectors.
Those storage facilities are looking
better and better by the minute.
Dickie Anderson welcomes your
comments. Books are available at
local book and gift stores or on line at

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2009 LEISURE News-Leader


LITERARY LEANINGS


Legal thriller
Pierce Kelley, an attorney
in Cedar Key, announces the
release of his sixth novel,
Asleep at the Wheel, a legal
thriller set in North Florida.
The protagonist falls asleep
while driving back to his home
in Fernandina Beach after a
weekend of fishing in the Gulf
of Mexico with his best friend,
who dies as a result of the acci-
dent.
"My other novels to date
have involved criminal issues,
such as DUI manslaughter in
A Very Fine Line, or vehicular
homicide in A Plenary
Indulgence, or accessories after
the fact as in Fistfight at the
L&M Saloon, but in this novel I
have focused on an issue that
often comes up in civil matters,
which is called 'bad faith.'
When the protagonist is sued
by the wife of his best friend,
his insurance company refuses
to settle the case within policy
limits. The question becomes
what happens when an insur-
ance company puts its own
financial interests ahead of the
interests of an insured. It is an
issue that few people know
much about and usually don't
find out about until after they
are sued," said Kelley in a
press release.
"As with all of my other
novels, I tell tales of what could
happen to any of us at.any time
and I do my best to make it as
entertaining as possible in the
process. If readers want to
'turn the page' and find out
what happens next, the book is
a success and I hope this one
is, too."
Kelley worked for Three
Rivers Legal Services out of
the Gainesville and Lake City
offices for most of the last five
years. He is now a solo practi-
tioner in Cedar Key. He spent
much of his 35-year legal
career handling civil matters
such as'personal injury and
wrongful death, as well as
being a state and federal public
defender.
