County officials spar over sour investment


'We need to assure county taxpayers
there are no 'missing funds).
MIKE BOYLE. NASSAU COUNTY COMMISSIONER

For him to take this kind of
personal attack is very hurtful.'
JOHN CRAWFORD. NASSAU COUNTY CLERK OF COURT


RYAN SMITH
News Leader


Nassau County Commissioner Mike
Boyle has questioned Clerk of Court John
Crawford about $7.8 million the county has
invested in a state fund that crashed in 2007
-, $2.4 million of which is still frozen and
unavailable for withdrawal.
Boyle said questions from county resi-
dent Clark Hoshall at a recent meeting about
a "missing" $7.8 million prompted him to
seek answers from the clerk. In a letter
dated Monday, Boyle took Crawford to task


on the SBA issue, questioning whether the
clerk could have foreseen the meltdown and
the wisdom of his actions in its wake.
"... I believe you would agree that we
' need to assure county taxpayers that there
are no 'missing funds,"' Boyle wrote. "And
if a loss of funds has occurred, or if the value
of our investments has decreased, we need
to quickly and clearly explain what steps
had been taken to prevent these develop-
ments. ... In view of your professed interest
in government transparency, shedding light

No, it's not. It's been a cold month and a cold winter, but you can't tell it by these guys getting pound-
ed by the surf on a warmer day last week. They're probably from a cooler clime up north, but thin-

Communities in Schools: 'You


can't break a promise to a child'


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Dan Cardinali says he chose a career in direct serv-
ice so he could work with those who are really struggling
because he found it the best way to use his time and tal-
ent.
Cardinali was a volunteer with the Organization of
American States when he first met Bill Milliken, founder
of Communities In Schools.
"I fell in love with Communities in Schools because
they went to the poorest kids and made a promise that
they would be a platform for trans-
m You ac formation in their lives."
Citing a CIS tenet that says, "It's
help,6A not programs that change students,
it's relationships," Cardinali believes
that CIS is the perfect fit for his philosophy of life.
"You can't break a promise to a child. You must keep
that commitment.
"It's about finding out how public education can work
better for particularly the most challenged, struggling kids
and then making systemic changes to help them."
Appointed president of the Communities In Schools
national office in May 2004, Cardinali is responsible for
the operations and day-to-day decision-making of the
organization. He also provides leadership and guidance
for the Communities in Schools network of nearly 200
local, independent non-profits and 14 state offices.
Addressing potential new donors and volunteers as
well as CIS students, current volunteers and board mem-
bers at a luncheon Thursday at Fernandina Beach Middle
School, the organization's president explained that CIS
is the largest dropout prevention organization in the U.S.
"We can prove from research that we improve grad-
uation rates and lower dropout rates" in their K-12 pro-
gram.

City Manager Michael Czymbor
has ordered a "temporary cessation of
all non-essential general fund expen-
ditures" as well as a stop to all capital
purchases in a memo to.city staff and
elected officials.
The reason for the pause in spend-
ing, wrote Czymbor, is because the
city has been forced to reduce its pro-
jected tax revenues because of the
economic recession. The cessation is
also necessary, he wrote, because
"industrial partner" Smurfit-Stone

property tax bill.
City Finance Director Patti Clifford
estimated that the city receives about '
$500,000 annually in taxes from the
mill, which is included in a recent
bankruptcy protection filing by
Smurfit's U.S. and Canadian sub-
sidiaries.
Smurfit-Stone had not yet paid its
annual taxes to the city and county
because the company challenged the
county's appraised value of its property
last year. The company is not consid-
ered delinquent, Clifford said, and will


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
gave preliminary approval at a special
meeting Thursday to place four char-
ter amendment questions on April's
ballot. A final decision will be made at
a special meeting March 7.
The four questions would increase
terms for commissioners from three to
four years, end term limits for com-
missioners, allow the commission to
set city election dates by ordinance
and delineate the role of city commis-
sioners in dealing with city employ-
ees.
A question that would increase the
mayor's term from one to two years
was removed from the ballot, as well
as a question on the removal of a sec-
tion in the city charter regarding elec-
tion dates. That question was, in the
end, combined with another.
One reason for the changes was
because commissioners and city st4ff
realized that, logically, voters should
decide on the length of terms for com-
missioners before deciding on elec-
tion dates. Otherwise voters might
have approved mutually exclusive
charter changes.
The commissioners' current three-
year terms are incompatible with mov-
ing city elections to November to coin-
cide with state and federal elections,
which are held every other year. A
city charter committee recommended


not be fined for pay-
ing taxes late
because that appeals
process is ongoing.
Mike Mullin,
director of media
relations and public
affairs for Smurfit-
Stone, which is head-
Czymbor quartered in
Chicago, said Florida
recently changed the
value adjustment board process, which
now requires the appointment of a
-pe,'id magisrq..This delayed the
process, he said, for Smurit-Stone to
receive its tax bill. The company has
been in tax litigation with Nassau
County "for a while now," he said, but
added that did not affect the taxes for
2007-8.
Michael Love, director of finance
for the Nassau County Tax Collector's
Office, said Smurfit-Stone has pending
lawsuits over previous tax assessments
for 2003-7, which are still being liti-
gated. The company has, however,
made "good-faith" payments for those
years. Good-faith payments, said Love,
are based on tax payments from pre-

the change to both save money by
combining elections and to increase
voter turnout, which has been poor
for city elections in April.
There still is some reluctance to
move elections to November.
Commissioner Ron Sapp said at
the special meeting that, although he
has always been opposed to having
elections in November, he could now
go either way. He had opposed
November elections, he said, because
citizens needed a special election date
to "consider the issues peculiar to
Fernandina Beach," and because local
candidates needed special attention.
"It's not clear that the commission
is going to go with the November elec-
tion," Commissioner Susan Steger con-
ceded Tuesday. She hopes voters
approve giving that authority to com-
missioners by ordinance, which would
allow for more debate on the matter.
"We want to make sure we have a
lot of citizen involvement deciding the
date of the election," Steger said.
If voters agree to four-year terms,
those would be effective immediately.
The two commissioners elected this
spring would serve for four years. An
original proposal had the commis-
sioners elected this year serving for
five years as a one-time fix to coordi-
nate elections, but citizens reacted
negatively to that, Steger said.
If the charter changes are approved
this year, an additional charter amend-

MISSING
Continued from 1A
on this critical issue should
benefit everyone concerned."
"I don't know where he's
trying to take this," Crawford
said. "All I can do is answer it
honestly. Mr. Boyle receives,
as does each county commis-
sioner, a finance report every
quarter. The remark that
money is missing is just totally
untrue, inaccurate and appears
to be politically motivated.
"I just have to in my heart of
hearts feel like Mr. Boyle has a
problem with my transparen-
cy," Crawford added. "...
Everything I do is subject to
transparency by the press. He's
very offended by that, and I
think this might be a little retal-
iation for that. ... I endorsed
Mike Boyle when he ran. For
him to take this kind of per-
sonal attack is very hurtful. He
says, 'In view of your professed
interest in government trans-
parency.' I can't view it as any-
thing but an ill political agenda
on Mr. Boyle's part."
Crawford said that Boyle
already had access to the infor-
mation he requested in his let-
ter. "I'm astounded that Mr.
Boyle would come across so
innocently ignorant when he
has been the beneficiary of vol-
umes of information, including
quarterly investment reports,"
he said.
However, Boyle insisted his
letter was not meant as a per-
sonal attack. "I am sorry if John
is taking this personally," he
said Monday. "It wasn't meant
personally I'm just trying to
answer questions that have
been raised in the public
arena."
The State Board of
Administration (SBA) handled
funds for hundreds of local gov-
ernments in Florida, which
pooled their money to attain
larger investment returns. But
in. 2007 other governments
withdreiv $13 billion, nearly
half of the fund, and the SBA's
board of trustees froze the
organization's assets. The
board created two funds -
Fund A for safe investments
and Fund B for those assets
still at risk.
At the time of the meltdown,
Nassau County had $55.6 mil-
lion invested with the SBA -
$7.8 million of which was des-
ignated as "at risk" and placed
in Fund B. As the instruments
in that fund have matured, the
money has been moved into
Fund A, with $2.4 million still
remaining in the at-risk fund.
In his letter, Boyle asked
Crawford if the freezing of
Nassau County's funds could
have been avoided. "Prior to
November, 2007, was there


information available which
would allow a reasonable and
prudent investment advisor to
recognize the impending cri-
sis with funds being held by
the SBA?"
Crawford insisted there was
no way to foretell the SBA's col-
lapse and pointed out that
Nassau County's was hardly
the only government to get
caught in the meltdown. "It is
what it is. There was a run on
the bank, and we got caught,"
he said. "Of course, there
weren't but about 1,000 other
governments in Florida that
got caught. It was a precursor
to what happened nationally.
Our country is in a national fis-
cal crisis, and if somebody's
crystal ball is better than mine,
God bless them."
Boyle said some counties
realized they needed to get out.
"There was a run of $13 bil-
lion. Those were the people
who had their heads up," he
said. "They got the word and
knew, 'Hey, our investments
are at risk.' That caused the
run."
Crawford's chief of staff, for-
mer clerk of court Jerry
Greeson, disputed that logic.
"If there had been any prelim-
inary signs that (the collapse)
was going to happen, I can
guarantee there would have
been withdrawals by govern-
ments over a period oftime,
instead of all at once," he said.
One of the factors that
caused the SBA meltdown was
the fund's investment in risky
subprime mortgage loans. In
his letter, Boyle asked Craw-
ford if he had known about
those investments beforehand.
Crawford said he was unaware
of the nature of those invest-
ments until after the collapse.
"We had no idea," he said.
"In investigating that later, I
think they had less than 3 per-
cent of their investments in any-
thing that touched that. It was
the psychological impact of the
danger of those that caused the
run on the bank, not any huge
amounts of tainted invest-
ments."
However, Boyle said
Crawford should have known
how the county's money was
invested even in flush financial
times. "I think when you put
millions of dollars into an
account, it would be wise to
occasionally check what you're
invested in," he said. "I think he
has a duty to do so as the chief
financial officer."
Crawford also defended his
actions in the Wake of the col-
lapse, pointing ,ut thlit I's irec-
ommendation to keep county
money in Fund A has paid off
as the SBA has recovered liq-
uidity. "Mr. Boyle himself, in
disagreement with the entire

rest of his board, was advocat-
ing (withdrawing money from
Fund A) over my objections
and the objections of four other
board members," he said.
"They could have drawn down
about 15 percent of Fund A in,
December of '07. The penalty
was 2 percent, and it was in the
$800,000 range. We would have
taken that loss immediately.
Instead, we tried to approach
this in a very methodical, very
deliberate fashion to mitigate
the risk."
Boyle conceded that
Crawford's recommendation to
keep the county's money in
Fund A had worked out.
"Under the circumstances -
everything was heading south
- I said we should give strong
consideration to (withdrawing
the money)," he said. "When
(Crawford) came to us, there
was no guarantee that anything
would firm up. I raised the
issue that maybe we should
take the hit. I thought it was
worth considering. But the
board did not vote to do that,
and that's fine. ... He urged us
to not do that and looking
back, that was the right deci-
sion. I don't begrudge him
that."
The county money in Fund
A about $5.4 million is now
available for withdrawal with-
out penalty. Of the cash in Fund
B, about $780,000 is showing as
an "unrealized loss" money
that could be lost if the econo-
my doesn't improve. But
according to Crawford, man-
agement of county funds since
the meltdown has gone accord-
ing to plan. /
"There are no surprises
here. That's why I'm flabber-
gasted that Mr. Boyle would
cast this in a dishonest light as
he has. Everything that was
planned in December of '07 has
come to pass."
Boyle, however, insisted
that the questions he posed
needed to be answered in a
public forum. "Here's the bot-
tom line as far as I'm con-
cerned: If there's no money
missing and the investments
have not lost value, then there's
no harm, no foul, and we need
to let the people know," he said.
"And if we have lost value, we
need to figure out how to pre-
vent it from happening again,
and we need to let the citizens
know about that too."

'Shovel-ready' road projects OK'd


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Northeast Florida
Transportation Planning
Organization has approved two
"shovel-ready" Nassau County
road improvement projects for
possible funding from the fed-
eral stimulus package.
The projects resurfacing
Eighth Street from Atlantic
Avenue to the Port of
Fernandina and resurfacing
14th Street from Pogy Place to
Atlantic Avenue could qualify
for a combined $775,000 in fed-
eral funding. The Eighth Street
project has an estimated cost
of $115,000, and the 14th Street
project is estimated at $660,000.
Those two projects will not
necessarily be the only Nassau
County construction efforts
that qualify for federal funding,
said TPO Public Relations
Manager Marci Larson. "These
particular projects are coming
through the TPO," she said.
"There could be other projects
that could come through
Nassau County or (the city of)
Fernandina Beach."
The Northeast Florida TPO
is an independent agencythat
plans for the long-range trans-
portation needs of Nassau,
Duval, Clay and St. Johns coun-
ties. "The counties and the com-
munities within had been asked
to put together shovel-ready
projects," Larson said. "We had
been directed by the Florida
(Department of
Transportation) to provide a
list.... All the counties got some-
thing."
Representatives from each
county were asked to prioritize
road projects. Financial feasi-

ability was also an issue, as the
counties would be allotted the
stimulus money based upon
population.
"We're expecting to get $24.
30 million (for the four-county
region)," Larson said. "...It cer-
tainly doesn't hurt to have the
$24-30 million, but it doesn't


really give you the flexibility to
really do big projects. But it
does free up that money in the
community, which might have
been earmarked for those proj-
ects, to go to something else."
Larson said the stimulus
money will be distributed by
FDOT. However, there's no


McGINTV- GORDON


word on when the money will
arrive. "I would say just stay
tuned," she said. "My under-
standing is that these shovel-
ready projects will go to the
drawing board in 90 to 120
days, but when the money is
going to come I don't know."

Safe and secure


investments?


With the financial
markets piling
up losses faster
than the '62
New York Mets, investments
considered safe and secure
have proven to be illusions.
Losses in stock and real
estate markets are approach-
ing 50 percent in some
instances, and financial insti-
tutions thought to be irre-
proachable are failing.
Scorned names like Madoff
and Stanford dominate the
news headlines.
Even local municipalities
have been impacted. It is
hard to believe that 15
months have passed since a
state-promoted investment
fund suffered a run on its
assets.
In November 2007, many
Florida municipalities
learned that the State Board
of Administration fund had
invested in sub-par securities
related to the mortgage mar-
kets. Local leaders began
pulling out local government
money in haste.
Nassau County still has
more than $2 million invest-
ed in the fund that it cannot
retrieve after the state froze
a portion of the assets. Some
other assets were available
for a time, but with a penalty.
Fortunately, municipalities
here had limited investments
in the state fund.
The fund had been
touted as safe and liquid. It
attempted to provide a
slightly higher return than
most money market funds.
Again, it is a case of some-
thing safe proving to be oth-
erwise.
Many of the problematic
mortgage-related assets
invested in by banks and
brokerages were promoted
as being safe and secure.,
Underneath the surface
and a sterling credit rating,
there were lower-rated mort-
gages that began to unrav-
el.
This initiated the brutal
descent in the markets '
endured over the past year
or so. Early on, government
leaders espoused the econo-
my as being strong and the
so-called sub-prime conta-
gion as "contained." We have
since learned this was not
the case. Election-year poli-
tics apparently clouded their

Myers to seek city election


Iarry 1). Myers has quali-
fied by petition as a candidate
for the Fernandina Beach City
Commission, Group 4.
He seeks to replace
Commissioner Ron Sapp, who
is not seeking election.
Myers will be opposed in
the April election by local busi-
nessman Tim Poynter.
Myers has city, county,
state and federal government
as well as private sector expe-
rience. He was the city man-
ager of Orange Park and
Fernandina Beach, the county
manager of Ware County, Ga.,
the interim Nassau County
administrator, the Osceola
County Clerk of the Works, the
legislative assistant to State
Rep. Aaron Bean, served in the
U.S. Navy Civil Engineer
Corps/SeaBees and is a
Vietnam veteran.
Myers and his wife Ann
purchased a house in the
Historic District, renovated and
opened a bed and breakfast.
Earlier Myers wasthe manag-
er of construction nationwide
for Ryder/PIE and was the
project manager for the Base
Operating and Support
Services contract at NAS Cecil
Field.
Graduating from Manatee
County High School, Myers
went to the University of
Florida where he received a
B.A. of building construction
and upon graduation entered
the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer
Corps. While in the Navy, he
earned a master of arts in
human resources manage-
ment and a master of science
in financial management. He
became a registered profes-
sional engineer in
Massachusetts and Mississippi
and a certified building official
in Florida.
Myers is a graduate of

several of
the meet-
ings and
'Y'' 'w .& public hear-
ings on the
Vision 2032
process.
Myers was a
member of
Myers the most
recent city
auditor selec-
tion committee, conducted in
accordance with Florida
statutes and good audit prac-
tices.
The Myers have lived in
Fernandina Beach for 19 years.
Ann Myers was a volunteer at
the Barnabas Center and he
served on their board of direc-
tors for six years. He partici-
pated in the inaugural com-
mittee which organized and
held the first Barnabas Center
"House of Possibilities"
fundraiser by renovating and
decorating the Pippi
Longstocking House in Old
Town. This was to be the
largest fundraiser for Barnibas
and a precedent for years to
come.
He is a former president of
the Fernandina Beach Rotary
Club and the Terpsichorean
Club. He has served on the
board of directors of VyStai-
Credit Union for 28 years,
including two years as
Chairman and three years as
vice chairman of the board.
VyStar, with assets of $3.7 bil-
lion, is owned by its 348,000
members.
In his campaign announce-
ment, Myers said he has "a
record of conservative finan-
cial management and proven
leadership." As the Fernandina
Beach city manager from 1990


to 1995, he said he turned a
deficit budget where the city
was borrowing money to meet
payroll into a positive cash posi-
tion, with over $1 million in
cash reserves, while recom-
mending reductions in the tax
millage rates.
"This is a proven record of
balancing budgets and reduc-
ing taxes," he said.
As city manager, Myers
was faced with a major chal-
lenge. "The large boat ramp at
the foot of Ash Street collapsed
just a few weeks before the
kingfish tournament. Larry
contacted several marine and
waterfront construction firms,
was able to negotiate and
arrange repairs on an emer-
gency basis, to remove the
damages, drive new pilings,
construct replacement sup-
porting beams and pour new
concrete deck panels. The
ramp was reopened just a few
days before the start of the
tournament, avoiding a large
economic loss to the arei."
"The nation, state, county
and city are reeling under
financial recession and its
effects upon citizens, their jobs
and their government. The
major issues are the economy,
preservation of the environ-
ment and the quality of life on
this beautiful barrier island and
coastal city," Myers said.
He said he is "well quali-
fied to deal with the myriad
issues facing Fernandina
. Beach" and "sees specific chal-
lenges as municipal taxes, fees
and expenses, the Amelia River
waterfront, the Egans Creek
Greenway, preserving the
Peck Center as a community
resource and maintaining the

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/SUsAN MILANA/COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS


Pay it f

A long with everything
else today appearing
to be out of control,
our nation's educa-
tion system is in crisis. But
unlike many of the other prob-
lems that we can't fix your
help, involvement and support
can make a difference locally
with our children's education.
National statistics indicate
that an estimated 7,000 stu-
dents drop out each day. That
adds up to about 1.2 million
students every year, or one
out of every three students,
who will not graduate with
their peers as scheduled. The
minority dropout rate is closer
to 50 percent. Lacking a high
school diploma, these young
people will spend much of
their lives unemployed, on
government assistance or
cycling in and out of the
prison system.
Dropping out of school
means dropping out of society.
Living standards and earning
levels are significantly less


forward

than those of graduates while
social services are nearly dou-
ble. Over 75 percent of people
incarcerated in Florida pris-
ons are high school dropouts
costing close to $20,000 per
year to house and feed each
one.
There are a number of rea-
sons kids fall behind and often
dox't realize the conse-
quences until it is too late. Too
many of our youth face diffi-
cult personal or family circum-
stances, peer pressure, preg-
nancy, low reading
proficiency, learning disabili-
ties, poor attendance or a
combination of these chal-
lenges. The final act of leav-
ing school is the result of a
long process of disengage-
ment with too many giving up
on the idea that learning and
succeeding in school is possi-
ble. And in the end we all pay
the price.
In the 2008 report "The
Sobering Truth About High
School Dropouts in Florida,"


you can make a difference


The final act of leaving school is the result
ofa long process of disengagement with too
many giving up on the idea that learning
and succeeding in school is possible.


Dr. David Handy wrote, "The
nature of the dropout problem
is no longer a mystery.
Research is readily available
to show us WHO drops out of
school and WHY. The appro-
priate question now is
whether or not we have the
collective WILL to invest in
the solutions." Among devel-
oped countries, the United
States ranks 18th in high
school graduation rates and
15th in college graduation
rates (Organization for
Economic Co-Operation &
Development, 2007). We can
help reduce these shocking
statistics by contributing to
our children in a variety of


ways.
Communities In Schools
(CIS) has provided dropout
prevention services to Nassau
County schools for over 15
years. Each day hundreds of
students spend before-school
ol- after-school hours working
with CIS teachers and volun-
teers in order to improve
basic skills and complete
homework in core classes
where they've fallen behind or
are performing below grade
level. During the school day,
CIS site coordinators based at
the schools coordinate the
services students may need,
provide referrals to other
agencies or resources and
provide additional support
and motivation. Assistance
with individual goal-setting is
also provided, and students
know there is someone follow-
ing up to ensure they stay on
track.
Career exploration, inter-
viewing skills and job coach-
ing are available, and students


who need help finding sum-
mer employment or complet-
ing college applications can
visit their CIS "coach" for
assistance. CIS provides the
tools and services students
need to help themselves suc-
ceed in school and in life.
Through the coordinated
efforts of Nassau County
teachers, support staff, non-
profit agencies and parents,
the graduation rate in Nassau
County has increased by over
25 percent in the past 10
years. (The "graduation rate"
is the percentage of students
who graduate with a regular
diploma within four years.)
Every additional student who
graduates is one moreperson
better prepared to be a pro-
ductive member of our com-
munity and our country.
How can we help? As par-
ents get involved. Spend
time with your kids each day.
Just listening to their con-
cerns will bring you closer
together.
Kids are people too, and,
like most of us just want to
know someone is listening
and trying to understand.
Even if you have little knowl-
edge of sixth-grade math, sit-
ting next to your children
while they do schoolwork
often helps them to focus and
stay on task. Stay connected


COMMUNITY THANKS


Persevere and excel
The Nassau County Sierra
Club would like to thank the
hundreds of supporters who
have contributed to the Crane
Island legal defense fund in the
past eight weeks. Despite the
hard economic times the people
have shown they will stand up


to be counted on issues such as
saving Crane Island from gov-
ernment's abuse of power.
Special thanks go to Clyde
Wilkes and his wife, Libby, who
assisted us in the Golf Ball Drop
event. Clyde donated his heli-
copter and his time as pilot,
while Libby took charge of the
numbered golf balls.

The event was won by

that of Ross Griffin.
It has been very encourag-
ing to receive the outpouring
of support and warmth through
the many letters and e-mails we
have received, and which have
been published in the News-
Leader, including from many
we have never met. My alma

with your student's school and
teachers through visits, e-
mails and phone calls. When
your children know you are
involved, they are more likely
to do their work and stay out .
of trouble.
Most everyone can afford
an investment of time, talent
or treasure to make a differ-
ence in a child's life. State
funds for education were cut
dramatically this year and
were totally eliminated for
agencies like CIS. So putting
the "community" back into
Communities In Schools can
make a significant difference
in the success of Nassau
County children. If you skip a
daily soda or coffee and
donate that small amount,
you've made an investment in
success. If you dedicate an
hour or two a week to volun-
teer, you can make a huge dif-
ference. It's amazing and grat-
ifying to watch children grow
and succeed, even when they
aren't your own.

[ VIEWPOINT/CLYDE W DAVIS/FERNANDINA BEACH



The lean cows have come home


T hirty-five years ago my professor at
the University of Florida assigned
Genesis 41:1-45 as a reading assign-
ment. The course was economics, not
religion, and the topic was the historic nature
and the inevitable, inescapable and fundamen-
tal character of the business cycle. (If you can-
not locate your Bible, it is the story of Joseph,
and Pharaoh's dream of the seven fat cows and
seven lean cows.)
My economics professor was absolutely cor-
rect, and those lean cows have certainly come
home. On the international scene, the news out
of Japan is that their economy shrank signifi-
cantly, posting a 12.7 percent decline last year.
It was their largest decline in 35 years. The
European economic picture is rosy in contrast.
They only expect a 2 percent decline in 2009.
In the United States, we have watched the
Dow tumble from 13,136.69 down to 7,465.95.
The S&P 500 and Nasdaq took similar falls by
over 40 percent. Here in Florida, the Marion
County School Board announced that for next
year it will not re-hire teachers of only one or
two years of service. Over 500 teachers will be
losing their jobs in that one Florida county.
Locally our largest private employer,
Smurfit-Stone Container, has filed for bankrupt-
cy protection. It is just one of many.
Bankruptcy filings in the Jacksonville court
rose by 18 percent over the same period of the
previous year. This was mild compared to the
bankruptcy filings in the Orlando and Tampa


courts, which, together with Jacksonville, com-
prise the Federal Bankruptcy Court of the
Middle District of Florida. Bankruptcy filings in
these courts were up by 49 percent and 39 per-
cent for the same period.
In Nassau County there were over 30 mort-
gage foreclosure sales advertised in December.
The dollar value of those foreclosure judg-
ments equaled $8,991,448. In that same month,
another 64 mortgage foreclosure cases were
filed. We started 2009 with another 73 foreclo-
sure cases being filed in January.
Regardless of whether you follow the mar-
ket, think our economies are connected or
even care about the increase in bankruptcy fil-
ings, these local foreclosure cases do not
involve strangers. They are our friends and
neighbors. These are people we know who are
losing homes and businesses at an alarming
rate.
No.w, let's put all that information into the
context of our local government and their cur-
rent behavior. The Nassau County Commission
and Fernandina Beach City Commission
should quit acting like they are somehow
immune to what goes on around them. They
need to recognize that we are in tough econom-
ic times and that there are even tougher times
ahead. They should acknowledge that sacri-
fices must be made and made now. They could
even give us an example of leadership, and
start by cutting their own salaries and benefits
before local government hits the wall financial-


ly. They could do this because they want to
lead by example, and because they know that
they will soon be asking their own employees
to sacrifice.
The county and city commissions, respec-
tively, could direct the county administrator
and city manager to prepare amended budgets,
cutting actual spending by 10 percent over. the
previous fiscal year. Not only that, they could
pledge to cut actual spending by 10 percent
each fiscal year for the next four years. They
could follow through and cut pork barrel
spending on local favorites and give up perks
that do not increase productivity. They could
limit their spending. They could pledge to actu-
ally cut the tax burden on local property own-
ers and businesses, to free up money so that
homes and jobs can be saved.
They could do this because they realize
that, in a weak economy, tax dollars are a drag
on every local household and every local busi-
ness. They could do this because, as revenues
inevitably shrink, their only other alternative
will be to borrow, dip into reserves and.
increase the tax burden on remaining taxpay-
ers. They could do this because, by releasing
business property and business dollars from
the burden of tax, government-can create an
environment that is attractive for business
expansion and growth.
The real questions are: What will they do?
Will they act now, or will they ignore the world
around them? Time will tell.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Fiscal discipline
I respectfully disagree with Commissioner
Ken Walker's comments, in particular his char-
acterization of Joe Gerrity as "the boy who cried
wolf' (Feb. 18). I find it incredulous that as a for-
mer mayor and sitting commissioner, Mr. Walker
doesn't think he owes any explanation for his or
the city manager's fiscal discipline, or lack there-
of. ,
What part of public servant do those in local
and national office not understafid? They are
elected to serve the public, receive generous
remuneration courtesy of the public and are
entrusted with money they take, by force, from
the public. As a regular Joe, try not paying your
taxes. Unlike some serving in the current
(Obama) administration, we are expected to plod
merrily along paying into the system as if our sole
purpose in life is to serve government, not the
other way around; not only that but it now appears
we should do so unquestioningly.
Mr. Gerrity raised some legitimate concerns
regarding the spending frenzy the city manager
has embarked on during these troubling eco-
nomic times, yet Mr. Walker dismisses him as
"howling about how much trouble we are in with-
out credible justification" what more justification
does he need? The only reason the government
is currently using our hard-earned tax dollars to
bail out the mortgage industry is because of a
decision they made, via the Community
Reinvestment Act, to force banks and lending
institutions to give money to people who, using
Mr. Walker's logic, were "planning for the future"
by buying homes they could never afford.
As Mr. Gerrity pointed out, foreclosures are
happening all around the country, and this com-
munity is not immune. In elementary terms that
means a lot fewer tax dollars rolling in to the cof-
fers at the local and national level. Therefore, it
is reprehensible that our public servants, rather
than showing some fiscal restraint, are spending
with wild abandon yet their response, when held
to account by someone who actually knows some-
thing about business and economics, is to resort
to ridicule.
My suggestion to Commissioner Walker and
the city manager is, rather than quoting
Prokoviev, you might learn something from the
book The Life of Colonel David Crockett in par-
ticular a passage entitled "Not Yours To Give"; and
I would also like to remind readers of something
a former president of the United States once said
in his address to a joint session of Congress. On
Aug. 12, 1974, Gerald Ford remarked, "A gov-
ernment big enough to give you everything you,
want is a government big enough to take from you
everything you have." If that isn't food for thought,
I don't know what is. ,
Mr. Gerrity, I applaud and admire your stance
on behalf of this community in demanding some
accountability from City Hall. Keep up the good
work!

Teachers respond
The apparent accusatory tone of restaurant
owner Brett Carter's "thank you" letter adver-
tisement to the Nassau County Health
Department that appeared in the Feb. 18 News-
Leader has offended the teachers that dined at
Brett's Waterway Caf6 on Jan. 5 and has prompt-
ed us to respond. As victims we would like to set
the record straight and inform readers about the
incident.
Jan. 5 was a school planning day and pre-
sented one of the few opportunities, during the
school year for teachers to enjoy the luxury of a
"lunch hour." There were eight people in our
party and the six of us that ate salad became vio-
lently ill within the next 36 hours. The other two
individuals in our party that did not eat salad did

not become sick. We know that there were other
individuals and groups of. people with whom we
did not have contact that also became ill after
eating salad at Brett's that day.
We contacted the management at the restau-
rant to advise them of the situation so that others
would not become ill. We were told by the man-
ager that "several employees had been out sick
with their children and that something must be
going around." The manager assured us he would
look into the lettuce issue. We felt the manager
-had responded in an appropriate and professional
manner. Ironically, when we called him back on
the following day he was out sick.
We are not writing to blame the staff at Bretws
for our illness. We understand that food may
become contaminated despite diligent efforts to
preclude this from occurring. However, we do
take issue with his apparent insinuation that the
teachers dining. at the restaurant on that date
had brought a stomach virus to his establish-
ment. None of our family members or our col-
leagues suffered the intestinal discomfort that we
experienced either before or after our visit to
this restaurant.
We understand that the health department
has finished a report of this incident. We contend
that Mr. Carter's "thank you" letter to the health
department may be an attempt to avoid possible
culpability by blaming the victims in an effort to
thwart any negative publicity that may occur as
a result of this report We hope this is not the case!

Sick teachers
In response to Brett Carter's letter (published
as an advertisement Feb. 18), we are pleased
that you are grateful to the health department.
Those of us who became violently ill after eating
at your restaurant, Brett's Waterway Caf4, are also
grateful to them because we were assured by
the health department that the restaurant was.
undergoing extensive training on proper food
handling and sanitation. Quite frankly, we were
satisfied to leave it at that.
However, we do take issue with the fact that
you paid to take out an advertisement to imply
that a concentrated group of teachers may have
brought this virus into your establishment. In
fact, we were highly insulted by your letter that
fails to mention several important facts. For exam-
ple, according to public record, your establish-
ment was cited for 22 violations on Jan. 12. You
also had employees exhibiting symptoms on Jan.
2, and those same employees continued to work
and handle food while they were sick.
The health department confirmed that we
contracted the norovirus. The report indicated
that the incubation period (36 hours) was con-
sistent with the time of our exposure to food con-
sumed at Brett's. Kim Gcib, supervisor from the
Nassau County Health Department, stated that
they had narrowed down the source of contam-
ination to either the ice or the salad.
Yes, it was a teacher planning/workday, which
allows professional teachers the unique oppor-
tunity to eat out for lunch and support our local
restaurants. We certainly hope that your com-
ment about it being a "teacher workday" was not
meant to imply that perhaps we had no business
being there. Keep in mind that this was the plan-
ning day following Christmas break, which means
we had no contact with students for anytime two
weeks prior to our luncheon. Only three teachers
from our elementary school ate lunch at Bretts
on Monday. Consequently, we were the only
three people at our school that became sick and
had to miss work.
Ironically, we discovered that seven teachers
from the high school, who ate salad lunch at
Brett's ,that same day, also contracted the
norovirus within 36 hours after their visit. This
group sat in an entirely different section of the
restaurant. Mr. Carter, we did not ride together
and we assure you, no one embraced!
Even more ironic was the fact that another
group customers, who are not teachers, report-
ed the same symptoms within 36 hours of their
salad lunch at Brett's that very same day. How
many other people ate at Brett's restaurant on Jan.
5 and became ill but did not report it? We may
never know.
Mr. Carter, we were not surprised that you
failed to apologize or take responsibility given the
unfortunate times in which we live. Nonetheless,
we are highly offended by your letter that implied
that we may have brought this virus into your
establishment and infected your employees. At
the very least we are pleased to learn from your
article that your employees are now washing and
sanitizing their hands prior to handling food or dis-
posing of dishes.

FPU is unfair
I somewhat understand FPU's request for a
'bigger deposit ("FPU to review deposit policy,"
Feb. 18). But after more thought I think it is
wrong.
My electric bill (as we all have seen) has at
least doubled in the past year and a half. Right
now it's like a new car payment (It's huge.) We've
struggled tremendously this year trying to keep
up with every month's higher electric bill.
Apparently we aren't struggling enough
though. We just received a notice saying they
need an additional $190 for my deposit
Now I don't need to find a measly $362 for my
latest bill, I need to find a whopping $552.46!
Wouldn't it have been great instead to get a let-
ter from FPU saying, "During these hard times
we understand how difficult it is to pay your elec-
tric bill. We are committed to your well being
and are returning your initial deposit of $400 to
help out a bit."
I know that's wishful thinking. The unfortunate
reality is similar to getting groceries for my fam-
ily, as I fumble at the checkout counter digging
for the last coins in my pockets. The store owner
(observing the holdup) says, "Sir, that'll be an
additional $50 since we can see you are a risky
customer."
Talk about hitting a man while he's down.
Others have not stuck us like this. My phone
bill, water, cable, Internet, all know where we
stand with each other.
We all have dumped tons in fees and service
charges to this utility knowing full well it's ludi-
crous to ignore our electric bill. We are commit-
ted to paying our bill, who can live without elec-
tricity? Who else could we go to? Doesn't the
fact that you have enough power and leverage (by
just flicking our power off) demand our attention
if we didn't pay?
Please reconsider this heavy burden you are
trying to place on so many of us.

Jaillife
I read the missive from "Jessica in Jail," and
though I feel for her misfortune and discomfort
I must say that jail is a very uncomfortable place
to be. Obey the laws and rules and you will not
put yourself in that situation. I will also point out
that it is sad that those that would try to kill us and
destroy our country are treated better than you
and have all the soft-hearted groups looking out
for them. Sad.
Jail should be a place of boredom and misery
in hopes that you will make every effort to "toe
the line" when your thoughts turn to law break-
ing and your memory turns to The Nassau Hilton.
Sorry for you, Jessie.

Life of leisure
Re: "Jail life" (Feb. 18) you are one lucky per-
son.
It is a shame that inmates don't appreciate
their free private room and board, three meals a


day, not to mention concierge service. Think
about it yotl don't have to get up and go to work,
there's nowhere you are expected to be every
day, no specific schedules to follow, no house to
clean, no yard to care of, no errands to run, no
meals to prepare, no dealing with everyday prob-
lems. The taxpayers are doing all of that so that
you can enjoy your life of leisure.
At least you don't appear to be one of the
approximately 30 million Americans dealing with
foreclosures and losing their wholefamily's room
and board. Besides, if you don't like the place
whereyou have to do the time, then don't do the
crime. It's that simple.

Gay-straight alliance
. I must observe that the tone of opposition to
students forming a gay-straight alliance "club" in
their school demonstrates precisely why such an
organization would be a good thing.
Freedom is the right to "do and be," it is not
the freedom to deny others their right to "do
and be."

Amelia Concourse raceway
I was looking forward to the Amelia Con-
course opening up to CR 107 down to Nassauville.
It seems the speed limit they posted is a bit slow,
but the problem is people are driving down the
concourse at very high speeds. But what does not
help, it seems a few of the Nassau County
Sheriffs deputies also drive at higher than post-
ed speed limits.
The other problem is the junction at Amelia
Concourse and SR 200, and Chester road
and SR 200, need a dedicated turn signal to
cross and merge with SR 200 (AlA).
I have called the county to look into that mat-
ter, but no action has been taken. We sat at the
intersection in the morning rush traffic for 37 min-
utes.
Something needs to be done, and it's simple,
a turn lane already exists; all that needs to be done
is a new light and program the lights. If the coun-
ty won't listen to one person, more people need
to call the office to complain.
I bet if a county commissioner had to sit in traf-
fic stuck, something would get done.
J.L. Brown Jr.

Traffic circle
For some reason, more and more drivers
now consider themselves exempt from following
common sense laws regarding stop signs, yel-
low/red lights and use of turn signals. However,
virtually all drivers instinctively use extra caution
at traffic circles.
The one under construction at Amelia Island
Parkway and 14th Street will improve safety, the
flow of traffic and fuel economy. Great project!

Shark attacks in U.S., world decline in '08


I nlvcsiy o/Fl orida
(;AIN lSV ILI .1E-The reces-
sion may 'be responsible for a
slhiinm of a different sort: an
untxpeilctd dive in shark
,tu1w ks, says a University of
Il'ii ida researcher.
Shark attacks worldwide in
2()0 dippdx to their lowest level
in five years, a. sign that
Americans may be forgoing
vacation trips to the beach, said
George Burgess, ichthyologist
and director of the International
Shark Attack File, which is
housed at UF.
According to the latest sta-
tistics released this month, the
total number of shark attacks
declined from 71 in 2007 to 59 in
2008, the fewest since 2003,
when there were 57, said
Burgess, who works at the
Florida Museum of Natural
History on the UF campos.
"I can't help but think that
contributing to that reduction
may have been the reticence of
some people to take holidays
and go to the beach for eco-


nomic reasons," Burgess said.
"We noticed similar declines
during the recession that fol-
lowed the events of 2001,
despite the fact that human pop-
ulations continued to rise."
Shark attacks dropped in the
United States and abroad in
2008, Burgess said. In recent
years, vacationing tourists have
been attacked off beaches in
remote parts of the globe, such
as Cocos Island in the Indian
Ocean, where none was report-
ed in the past, he said.
There were four fatal attacks
last year an average number -
compared with only one in 2007,
which marked a two-decade low.
Two of the deaths were in
Mexico, one was in Australia
and one was in the United
States.
La Nifia, a meteorological
condition that brings water
masses and deep ocean crea-
tures closer to shore, probably
was a factor in the deaths of two
male surfers and injury of a
third that occurred in less than
a month along a resort-studded

cence ofsome people to take holidays and go
to the beach /or economic reasons.'

stretch of Mexico's southern
Pacific coast, Burgess said.
The U.S. fatality was a 66-
year-old man swimming at
Solana Beach, Calif., while thel
Australian death occurred along
the country's eastern coast and
involved a 16-year-old boy.
The number of shark attacks
in the United States, which typ-
ically makes up about two-thirds
of the total worldwide, dropped
from 50 in 2007 to 41 in 2008,
Burgess said. Of those attacks,
32 were in Florida the same.
number as the previous year -
followed by North Carolina and
South Carolina, with three each;
Hawaii, two; and California, one.
Florida, with its warm
waters, has more sharks, includ-


ing black tip sharks and spinner
sharks, species not found in
lower temperatures, Burgess
said. "A lot less attacks occur
off Long Island, N.Y., than
Florida simply because there
are fewer sharks up there," he
said.
Within Florida, Volusia
County continued its dubious
distinction as the world's shark
bite capital with 22 incidents,
its highest yearly total since
2001, Burgess said. Attractive
waves off New Smyrna Beach
on the central Atlantic coast are
popular with surfers, lie said.
As in past years, surfers
accounted 'for most of the
workl's attacks 57 percent -
followed by. swimmers and


waders, 36 percent; and divers,
8 percent, he said. These num-
bers are rounded up, which is
why they total more than 100
percent
"Surfers are the heavy
favorites largely because the
splashing of arms and particu-
larly the kicking of feet at the
water's surface where visibility
is poor is provocative to sharks,"
Burgess said. "They result in
what we think are cases of mis-
taken identity, where the shark
interprets the irregular splash-
ing to be activities of its normal
prey."
As a group, surfers seem to
accept the risks of pursuing a
sport in the ocean,'he said.
"I've yet to find a surfer who
says he or she won't go back
into the water after a bite or a
nip," he said. "Some of them
may be looking over their shodl-
ders a little bit more than they
did before, but the reality is they
understand where humans fall
in the grand order of thiftgs."
Burgess said he doubts the
economic recession is likely to


deter surfers because their
interest in the recreational activ-
ity is so high. "It's oftentimes
not a group that is economical-
ly blessed, but all they have to
do is drive to the beach with
the board and get into the water,
and the rest is free," he said.
To a certain extent, divers,
like surfers, pursue their sport
as something of an avocation,
leaving swimmers and waders
as the group most likely to be
affected by economic hardship,
Burgess said. "These are sort of
the average folks that go to the
water for recreation, lie on the
beach, work on their suntan and
take their kids in the surf for a
swim," he said. "I would expect
their numbers to decline in
2009."
Over the long term, though,
Burgess expects shark attacks
to rise because of a gradual
upswing from one decade to the
next. "We've already surpassed
the numbers of attacks in the
previous 10-year period," he
said, "so we know this decade
will be higher than the last."

Taking a walk with dolphins


t's not every day you get
to take a walk with dol-
phins. One morning, on
the beach at low tide, I
noticed some dolphins leisure-
ly gliding in the water follow-
ing the shoreline, headed
south. I decided to follow
them.
For three miles we kept
pace, those dolphins and I. I'm
not sure if they noticed me
accompanying them, but I like
to think so. They were travel-
ing at a steady slow pace, just
right for me. At first it was a
mother and a calf that I was
watching, but then, coming up
behind them, a group of five
adult dolphins caught up with
them too. For a couple of min-
utes the mother/calf pair and
the others intermingled, with
not much noticeable distur-
bance. Here and there one
dolphin or another popped its
head up, or showed more of
its back but mostly the com-
bined group just continued
their leisurely travel south,
keeping pace with me walking
beside them. Probably these
were all part of the same pod,
familiars and maybe even rela-
tives, just a routine social
gathering.
Then all hell broke loose.
Another group of four or five
adult dolphins zoomed in from
the south, at high speed,
towards the leisurely travel-
ers. In moments the sea was
alive with the sounds of tail
slapping and splashing and all
kinds of commotion as the
groups intermingled. I could
only guess that the newcom-
ers were another group, and a


territorial or
social chal-
lenge was
r under way.
In the hub-
h bub I lost
sight of the
r. ',' pair. Soon,
the entire
WILD group disap-
WAYS peared out of
my sight and
my walk with
Pat the dolphins
Foster-Turley was over for
the day.
I sure wish at times like
these that I could see under-
water. Bottlenosed dolphins
have strong social groups,
males run in packs, females
run with their calves and often
with other females too. Much
is known about the social
skills of dolphins in captivity,
and wild studies following
known individuals for years
have yielded further informa-
tion. Sadly, momentary
encounters like mine usually
remain unexplained.
I thought I knew a lot
about dolphins. For early
three decades I worked at ani-
mal parks that had captive dol-
phins, and my husband,
Bucko, was one of their train-
ers. As a zoologist, I've stud-
ied marine mammals, taken
graduate level courses on ani-
mal behavior and ecology and
learned from many marine
mammal specialists. But, you
know, there is always more to
learn, and with dolphins it's
no exception.

There are maybe 500year-round residents
and a number of transient dolphins
wintering in Northeast Florida.


was walking this same stretch
of beach with my visiting
friend, Dr. Aleta-Hohn, a
marine mammal biologist with
the U.S. National
Oceanographic and
Atmospheric Administration'
(NOAA). If anyone knows
about dolphins, it's Aleta,
she's made her career study-
ing them. When we took our
walk, the ocean was flat calm
and the dolphins were easy to
spot. It wasn't long before I
learned my first new dolphin
fact from her.
A mother and calf pair of
dolphins was cruising near us,
and according to Aleta the
baby was a newborn, less than
24 hours, old. Even from our
distance away she could tell
this by the way the baby
popped to the surface to
breathe, instead of the slow
rolling motion a more experi-


enced baby soon develops.
And according to her years of
research on dolphins along
the Atlantic Coast, this was
highly unusual, a baby in early
January, out of the usual
birthing season a bit later.
I learned other things
about dolphins when Aleta
way visiting, too. For one
thing,from genetic and mor-
phological studies it now has
been determined that there
are different "stocks" of dol-
phins, which do not inter-
breed, along the Atlantic
Coast. Each area of the coast
has its own dolphin popula-
tion. Ours in Northeast
Florida includes maybe 500 or
0 more year-round residents
and a number of transients
wintering here. Could it have
been a meeting of a group of
transients and some locals
that I saw on my recent beach


walk? Who knows, but it's pos-
sible.
And I had no idea that dol-
phins can be a host to barna-
cles, their own special species
of them, called Xenobalanus
globicipitis, the subject of one
of Aleta's student's thesis.
What I have long been calling
a unique family of dolphins in
and around Cumberland
Sound with a special charac-
teristic of protrusions on the
dorsal fin might not be a
genetic trait at all. The poor
dolphins just might be sad-
dled with barnacles!


Dolphins,
like this
captive
one, often
raise their
h. eyes above
the surface
to look at
people or
other
Sth ings of
interest.
ARi, FObSlR-
TURIEY/FOR
THE NEWS-

There's plenty more for
Aleta and other specialists still
to learn about the ubiquitous
bottlenosed dolphins that
share our shorelines. But for
me, it is not as a scientist that
I stroll the beach, watching
dolphins. The joy of walking
down the beach in pace with
wild dolphins reaches a deep-
er place than my intellect, and
fills not my mind, but my soul.
And that's good enough for
me.

'Community Health

Conversation' Thursday


A "Community Health
Conversation" will be hosted
Thursday by State Rep. Janet
Adkins and the Health Planning
Council of Northeast Florida,
Inc., in cooperation with Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville.
This event, from 6:30-8:30
p.m., will be held at the FCCJ
Betty R Cook Nassau Center in
the "Red" Bean Technical
Career Center located at 76346
William Burgess Blvd. in Yulee.
It will focus on discussions
facilitated around three primary
topics: Medicaid reform, Cover
Florida health care access pro-
gram and federal health care
reform.
Medicaid Reform is of spe-
cial interest as four of Northeast
Florida's counties (Baker, Clay,
Duval and Nassau) are partici-
pating in a statewide Medicaid
reform pilot initiative.
Cover Florida allows insur-
ers to create health insurance
products that are affordable and
guaranteed to Floridians who
have been without insurance
for at least six months, or, who
are recently unemployed even
if there are pre-existing health
conditions.


The coverage is voluntary
for both individuals and for
employers, and the policies are.
portable (allowing employees
to take their coverage with them
if they change jobs).
Confirmed speakers are
Leah Cook with Florida CHAIN,
Vicki Abrams and Cindy Vallely
with DCF, Alexandra Kruse
with Department of Elder
Affairs, Lisa Broward with
Agency for Healthcare
Administration, Dr. Eugenia
Ngo-Seidel with Nassau County
Health Department, Kerry
Dunlavey with Baker County
Health Department, Nancy
Mills with Clay County Health
Department, Dr. Robert
Harmon with Duval County
Health Department, Jennifer
Johnson or Yvonne Bigos with
OPPAGA (Office of Program
Policy Analysis and
Government Accountability),
Paul Duncan with University of
Florida, Glenn Kollen with First
Coast Advantage and Jim Mayo
with Baptist Nassau.
The public is invited to
attend this event.

Concurrency


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
A concurrency dispute led
to allegations of libel at
Monday's meeting of the
Nassau County Commission. At
issue was concurrency for the
Nassau Tradeplex, located at
the north corner of A1A and
Gene Lasserre Boulevard in
Yulee.
Developer Wayne Chism,
who owned 16.5 acres in
Tradeplex West, was granted
concurrency in 2007. As Chism
sold portions of his land to other
developers, he divided the con-
currency among them.
However, confusion developed
when some of the acreage was
sold prior to the county issuing
Chism a certificate of concur-
rency. At Chism's request, new
concurrency in the Tradeplex
was frozen in December until a
solution could be reached.
At Monday's meeting,
County -Engineer Douglas
Seaman asked the commission
to lift the freeze in order to grant
a certificate of concurrency to
Nassau Holding Co., which had
purchased 12 acres from Chism
in March 2007. In an agenda
request to the board,
Engineering Services claimed
that Joe Merlini Jr., president
of Nassau Holding Co., had
been denied concurrency and
discovered "that his trips were
assigned to Mr. Chism due to an
application by Mr. Chism that
misrepresented ownership -in
all of the property of Tradeplex
West."
The agenda request was
signed by Seaman and County
Coordinator Ed Sealover, but
unsigned by Office of
Management and Budget
Director Ted Selby, County
Attorney David Hallman and
Clerk of Court John Crawford.
Chism has maintained that
since the certificate of concur-
rency was issued to .him in
August 2007, concurrency was
his to divide among the devel-
opers that purchased his land.
Seaman took issue with that
interpretation, however, insist-
ing there are well-defined
avenues for trading concurren-

cy within a project.
Commissioner Stacy John-
son said she was upset at the
wording of the agenda request.
"I have several problems with
this one," she said. "This didn't
go through the county attor-
ney's office. It's pretty close to
slander when you say that Mr.
Chism misrepresented owner-
ship of the land. It was his prop-
erty. He assigned the trips. Mr.
Merlini should have been given
a letter stating, 'You have this
many trips.'"
Former county. attorney
Mike Mullin, now in private
practice, represents Chism.
Mullin said the language of the
agenda request, which was
available to the public on the
county's website, was libelous.
"Mr. Chism has been maligned
terribly. Each time this is pub-
lished, it's actionable," Mullin
said. "Mr. Seaman for some rea-
son has taken it upon himself to
say that Mr. Chism misrepre-
sented himself."
Mullin insisted that Merlini's
concurrency was not at risk.
"The county knew back on Aug.
8 (2007) that a new owner had
taken possession of 12 acres....
Mr. Merlini is not in jeopardy,"
he said. "Somebody planted a
seed of doubt in Mr. Merlini's
mind that he wouldn't be able to
proceed, when the simple
answer is that Mr. Chism gave
him a letter saying, "You have
this number of trips.'"
Hallman agreed the lan-
guage of the request was legal-
ly'questionable, especially con-
sidering that no evidence was
provided to back up Seaman's
allegation of misrepresentation.
In fact, he said the request was
originally slated for the Feb. 9
agenda, and he had expressed
concern about the language to
Sealover. "As a result of my con-


cerns and the lack of backup,
this item was pulled from the
Feb. 9 agenda," he said. How-
ever, Hallman said it was placed
on Monday's agenda without
going through his office. By the
time he found out the item was
on the agenda, it was already
posted on the county's web site.
Hallman said he felt some-
one was using Merlini's con-
cern about his concurrency to
advance a larger agenda.
"Based on my investigation,
someone has placed in Mr.
Merlini's mind undue concern
about his trips. I fear that Mr.
Merlini is being used as a pawn
in a larger issue," he said. "As
far as I can see, Mr. Merlini has
nothing to worry about." How-
ever, Hallman stopped short of
making any direct accusations.
Hallman also said the coun-
ty's concurrency rules needed
to be streamlined. For the time
being, he said, Chism's
approach seemed to be work-
ing. "The truth is, our ordinance
could be clearer on who owns
concurrency. ... What is clear
to me is that the only workable
way to approach this is that con-
currency goes with the parcels,"
he said. "It will be my recom-
mendation to you that you limit
your staff's role to that of a
scrivener. They will record con-
currency."
Mullin assured the board
that Merlini had his concur-
rency. "Certainly Mr. Chism will
write a letter to Mr. 'Merlini
telling him how many trips he
has," lie said.
However, Seaman stood by
his position that concurrency
was not Chism's to grant.
"There's only two ways you can
trade concurrency within a proj-
ect," he said. "One would be a
permit modification. The other
is through a developer's agree-
ment. I don't have either of
those from Mr. Chism. If he
issues a letter here, I don't see
how my ordinance can allow
me to accept that."
However, a letter from
Seaman to Merlini, dated Aug.
30, 2007, appeared to agree with
Chism's position. In that letter,
Seaman wrote that issuing
Merlini a certificate of concur-

rency for his property was
"unnecessary since concurren-
cy is already assigned to this
property."
Growth Management Direc-
tor Walter Fufidio agreed at
Monday's meeting that concur-
rency had already been granted.
In fact, he said, Merlini's con-
currency was well established
enough that Chism might not
need to take any further action.
"I think that if the trips have
a-lready been assigned and Joe
Merlini's site plan has been
approved, why does Mr. Chism
need to send any letter?" he
said.
County Commissioner Mike
Boyle agreed. "It seems to me
that we have a clear record that
Mr. Merlini has his concurren-
cy," he said. "I believe this board
believes he has his concurren-
cy, so let's not make it any more
difficult than it has to be."
Johnson moved to table
Engineering Services' request
to lift the freeze. She sharply
criticized the staff for attempting
to make policy instead of mere-
ly implementing it. "I'm fed up.
I've got to have trust in staff,
and I no longer have that," she
said. "Now (Seaman) is saying
he disagrees with legal, and he's
not an attorney.... I also want to
state that I believe the board
owes Mr. Chism an apology for
the way this item was handled."
Johnson's motion to table the
issue passed unanimously.
Hallman also recommended
further action to try to stem pos-
sible libel action. "In order to
deal with the legal concern that
Commissioner Johnson has
expressed, I recommend the
following, by motion," he said.
"Number one, that 'through
poor grammar it incorrectly
appeared on the agenda that
Mr. Chism misrepresented him-
self; number two, the board
apologizes for this; and number
three, that we publish a cor-
rection on the website." That
motion was made and also
passed unanimously.

Vision 2032 report


to be presented


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
The Vision 2032 steering
committee will present its final
report at a public workshop
session today at 6 p.m. in the
Nassau County Commission
chambers at the James S, Page
Governmental Complex, 96135
Nassau Place, Yulee.
The Vision 2032 process
was an effort to provide a
guide for responsible growth
and planning in Nassau
County over the next 25 years.
The report is the culmination
of a visioning process that
began in mid-2007 and a series
of public meetings that began
in February 2008.
Growth management, edu-
cation and health care were
the top concern for those
attending the public meetings,
according to a Feb. 10 pres-
entation by Growth
Management Director Walter
Fufidio, who also acted as the
steering committee's chair-
man. There was also a strong
message that Nassau County
needed more parkland and
open space for recreation.
While tourism was addressed
at the meetings, many county
residents, were more con-
cerned about bringing busi-
ness into the county and
upgrading infrastructure.
The steering committee


recommended several strate-
gies for effective growth man-
agement. Future development
decisions should consider
financial feasibility, availabili-
ty of infrastructure and private
property interests, according
to the report. The report also
recommended the use of vol-
unteer groups to hold com-
munity-wide meetings to iden-
tify places that are historically,
socially and ecologically sig-
nificant when planning future
growth. In addition, the steer-
ing committee advised that the
Vision 2032 final report be
incorporated into the 2010
update of the county's com-
prehensive plan to give its rec-
ommendations more force.
The report recommended
that the county support any
effort to expand hospital capac-
ity in Nassau County, espe-
cially west of 1-95, and coordi-
nate with developers on
establishing land uses for med-
ical facilities. It also recom-
mended working with Florida
Community College and the
Nassau County School District
to establish health care train-
ing programs starting in high
school.
It also recommended the
preservation and expansion of
outdoor recreational areas,
improved access to waterways
and, when feasible, acquiring
new land for recreational use.

Homes burgled
A series of homes have been
reported burglarized in
Fernandina Beach. The bur-
glaries were reported last week-
end; according to police reports,
at least two homes on Gregg
Street and one home on Ocean
Boulevard were apparently bro-
ken into.
Items were reported stolen
only from one home, where the
owner told police a VCR, food
and sheets had been taken.
At one of the homes, nothing
was taken but police say it
appeared as though someone
had been staying at the home
for an extended period of time.
Rooms had been ransacked in
one of the other homes, but
nothing was reported missing.
The burglaries are under
investigation by Fernandina
Beach detectives; no arrests
have been made..

A Hilliard man was arrested
last week for a robbery that took
place at a Callahan gas station.
Michael Jay Wilson, 19, of
376175 Kings Ferry Road was
arrested Feb. 17 in connection
with a robbery at the Kangaroo
Store on US 1 on Feb. 16. Police
believe it was Wilson who
entered the store,.went behind
the counter and tried to take
cash out of the cashier's hand
by force.
The suspect did not get any
cash, but he did grab a bag of
nuts on his way out. No one was
injured in the robbery, and the
suspect reportedly did not have


any weapons.
Wilson was arrested on
charges of attempted robbery,
battery and petit theft. He is
currently in custody at the

4-H offers fun and learning to youth


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader


Amanda Thien, 4-H program
leader for the University of
Florida, Nassau County
Extension Service, describes 4-
H as "a fun and educational pro-
gram available for youths ages


5-18 and we also have a group of
wonderful, caring adult volun-
teers."
Nassau County 4-H offers 11
traditional community clubs,
most of them comprising
youths who vary in their project
interests tremendously, but also
several clubs that focus on spe-


cific areas such as horses,.
sewing and livestock.
These clubs are all located
on the West Side of Nassau
County, but Thien said there
will be a new club offered this
summer to youth on the East
Side who want to learn more
about dogs and cats and poten-


tial career opportunities with
these animals.
Youths ages 5-18 are encour-
aged to participate in commu-
nity clubs, as members at large,
through school enrichment or
special interest short-term pro-
grams.
Nassau County 4-H started
around 1917, just a few years
after 4-H began in Florida in
1909.
"The first clubs in Nassau
County were school clubs, held
during school hours. The
County Agent led the boys,
teaching them all things related


to farming; and the Home Agent
led the girls clubs, teaching the
usual home related subjects,"
said Thien.
Nassau County 4-H also ben-
efits the community by offer-
ing safe and educational pro-
grams for young people.
Carissa Seay is a member of
a 4-H group called Juss-Horsin'-
Around, which meets the sec-
ond Tuesday of each month in
Hilliard. The group uses parlia-
mentary procedure to run the
meetings.
"This basically means we
have officers such as president,


vice-president, etc.," said Seay.
"I like this because it gives
me a chance to hold a leader-
ship role."
She said, "In my opinion 4-H
is amazing and I think every-
one should join a group and see
how great it really is."
Members of the community
can help 4-H by offering their
time to start a new club or by
offering to teach a subject in a
particular area of knowledge or
experience. Call the extension
office at (904) 879-1019 if you
are interested.

Pirates top Cowboys, meet Trojans again in semifinal


BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Pirates (27-2 and ranked fifth
in the state last week) advanced in
the regional playoffs Thursday with an
81-60 win over the visiting Madison
County Cowboys. An estimated crowd
of 1,000 spectators filled Pirate Gym
for the regional quarterfinal matchup.
"It was huge," said Jake Brogdon,
one of just two seniors on the team
this season. "It was loud. I love the
crowd. I love the fans and the fans
love me. It works out."
Madison was no walkover.
"They were better than I thought
they would be," Brogdon said. "They
were big. They were a good team,
well-coached."
Thursday's win kept the Pirates at
home. The Fernandina Beach High
School boys basketball team hosted
the Ribault Trojans Tuesday in the
regional semifinal. For results, visit
www.fbnewsleader.com.
It was the third meeting between
the two teams. Ribault won the first
matchup by a point and the Pirates
avenged that loss in the District 4-3A
championship game at FBHS on Val-
entine's Day. The Pirates won 67-45.
"Even though we had a fairly easy
time with Ribault the last time we
played, we know that it will be a bat-
tle on Tuesday night," FBHS Coach
Matt Schreiber said. "They had to
regroup and go to Tallahassee to win
(Thursday over Florida High). That's
not an easy thing to do. I think they'll
come in here more prepared than the
last time we played."
"We should be able to beat them
again," said junior Carlos Holcey. "If
we do the same thing we've been
doing, well beat them again by the
same amount or more."
Brogdon agreed.
"It's going to be harder to beat
them this time, but we can do it," he
said. "We're expecting them to come
out strong, ready to play. We've just
got to beat them. We have to be more
intense."
Holcey had a double-double on
Thursday.
"We came out strong and we
played like we played against Ribault
We played hard and didn't give up," he
said. "They kind of made a run, but we
didn't let them back in it. We kept
going. Everybody shot well and they
couldn't do anything about it."
On Thursday, the Pirates led by
just two after a quarter but held a 41-
30 lead by halftime.

built a pretty substantial lead and lost
focus," Schreiber said. "They would
make some plays to get back within
striking distance. Every time they did
that we would respond by regaining
our focus and stopping. whatever
momentum they had."


Madison cut the Pirates' lead to
just seven with 5:47 left in the game,
but with four minutes to play, the
Pirates had doubled their lead. By the
time Carlos Holcey sunk a pair of tech-
nical foul shots, Fernandina was out of
reach with a 75-56 advantage.


"Madison had some good athletes
that at times gave us problems with
their quickness," Schreiber said. .
Brogdon got the ball rolling in the
first half, hitting five of his six three-
pointers to set the pace.
"Jake getting off to a hot start gave


us a gigantic boost from a confidence
standpoint," Schreiber said. "When
Jake or Zach (Rocheleau) or Tai (Al-
ford) are hitting threes, it really opens
things up for us to attack the basket."

Even though the Ribault
Trojans knocked the Pirate
football team out of the play-
offs last fall, Domonic Jones
said the game was a highlight
of his senior season.
The wide receiver had a sea-
son-high seven catches for 130
yards and a pair of touchdowns.
"He had a great game," said
Ed "Puggy" Brown, head foot-
ball coach at Fernandina Beach
High School. "I think he really
stood out and established him-
self."
"I thought we were going to
come back on them," Jones
said. "They just pulled away."
The high school season
ended that night, but Jones
won't be hanging up those
cleats anytime soon.
He signed with The Citadel
Feb. 4 and will join a former
high school teammate when he
does. Terrell Dallas is current-
ly a freshman at the Charleston,
S.C., military college..
"We've established a good


id Pirate playing for The Citadel
relationship (with The Citadel),
and as long as these young men
go up there and do the right
thing, they'll keep coming back
wanting more of our guys,"
Brown said. "They feel like
they're getting a quality prod-
uct."
Jones, 6-foot-6, had 36 recep-
tions for 513 yards and eight t
touchdowns last season for the
Pirates. An all-county selection,
he also played at defensive end
for FBHS.
The Citadel is also getting a
quality student in Jones, who
has a 3.8 weighted grade point
average while tackling a trio of
advanced placement courses
and honors classes.
"The courses he's taking are
very highly accredited cours-
es," said John Landregan, who
has been Jones' mentor
through the Take Stock in
Children program since Jones
was in the eighth grade. "It's a.....

News-Leader

The Yulee Hornets defeat-
ed Hilliard 8-3 Thursday on the
road. The win pushes Yulee
High School baseball team's
record to 2-1.
Freshman Marcus Taylor
led the Hornets with four hits,
a trio of RBIs and a run scored
while picking up his first save
on the mound. He gave up no
hits or runs in three innings.
Sophomore Nolen. Carlyle
picked up the win for the team.
The Hornets' leading hitters
were seniors Josh Cassidy (2-
for-4 with an RBI and a run
scored) and Michael Beasley
(2-for-4 with a double and a pair
of runs scored) and sophomore
Andrew Minor (2-for-4 with a
run scored).
Senior Garrett Callis had a
triple and junior Jonathan


Beaton doubled for the
Hornets.
Yulee hosted Mandarin
Christian Monday and Baldwin
Tuesday. The Hornets close out
the three-game home stint this
week with Hawthorne on
Friday. First pitch is at 7 p.m.
The Fernandina Beach
High School baseball team is
also 2-1 on the season with
Friday's 5-2 victory over visiting
Ponte Vedra.
Nick Syme got the win and
Tyler Thornton picked up the
save for the FBHS Pirates.
Harrison Yonn had two of
the Pirates' six hits. Jeff Day,
Trent Luman, Myles Rabant
and Trent Luman had one each.
Martin had a pair of RBIs.
The Pirates travel to Bishop
Snyder Thursday for a District

back home Friday with
University Christian at 6 p.m.


Hamilton, FSU a virtual lockfor an NCAA bid


team picked up its 20th and 21st
wins last week and sits alone in sec-
ond place in the vaunted Atlantic
Coast Conference with four regular season
games to go. At this point, I believe it's safe for
Seminoles fans to go ahead and pencil their
team into the Big Dance for the first time in 10
years and only the fourth since joining the
ACC in 1991.
Say what you will about head coach
Leonard Hamilton, but the guy has done a
pretty solid job coaching basketball at a foot-
ball school, leading FSU to three consecutive
19-win seasons before breaking the 20-win
mark this year. A Sweet 16 run or better would
be another nice notch in the belt of Hamilton,
who seems to be slowly but surely making
Florida State a legitimate player in the ACC ...
Police arrested University of Florida offen-
sive lineman Carl Johnson last week after he
reportedly violated a domestic violence


restraining order put in place
the previous week. According
to reports, Johnson followed
the woman the restraining
order was supposed to pro-
tect when she got off a bus in
Gainesville.
Florida head coach Urban
Meyer has yet to comment
on the issue, however, his
recent stance on such mis-
SPORTS deeds would indicate that
Johnson's days as a Gator
TALK might be numbered.
The last three Florida
JOHN L. players to brush with the law
CRAWFORD -Jamar Hornsby, Jacques
Richardson and Cam Newton
are no longer with the
Florida football team.
Add in the fact that Johnson's alleged
wrongdoing involves a female and his ground


becomes that much shakier given Meyer's
hardcore position on respecting women ...
The University of Michigan will reportedly
lower ticket prices to next season's football
games. That's the least they could do after
' fans had to witness the poor product that head
coach Rich Rodriguez put on the field last
year. In fact, an argument could be made that a
partial refund is in order for 2008 ...
Former coach and current college football
analyst Lou Holtz has been named to coach
the Notre Dame Legends team against Japan's
national American football team on July 25.
The Fighting Irish roster, which won't be final-
ized until sometime in April, will likely include
names like QB Tony Rice, RB Travis Thomas
and C John Ruddy, according to Holtz. The
Japanese team will be made up of both colle-
giate and corporate players. Sounds a little
cheesy, but hey, at least it's football. And by
July, hardcore pigskin enthusiasts will surely
need a fix ...


Texas Tech head football coach Mike
Leach accepted the school's "final offer" and
agreed to the terms of a five-year, $12.7 million
contract Thursday. According to reports,
Leach had held out on signing the contract
because he didn't like the stipulation that he
would be fired and fined $1.5 million if he
decided to interview for another job without
first gaining permission from Athletic Director
Gerald Myers. The reworked contract only
requires Leach to notify Myers in writing
before seeking a new job.
On a side note, Leach should feel blessed
that he didn't lose his job. Because with the
economy in shambles, he likely would have
had a whale of a time finding a gig as a pirate.
Enter the term "Leach pirate obsession" in
Google and click on a few of the video inter-
views for a laugh or two. The guy is truly
unique on and off the field.

The Pirates had 16 turnovers in
the game; some resulted in easy points


for the Madison County Cowboys.
"We started thinking we had the
game under control and got careless,"
Brogdon said. "Coach called a timeout
We got back together and got our run
back."
It's taken 29 games and countless
hours of practice to get the'Pirates to
the second round of the playoffs and
just two steps from the Final Four.
Tuesday's winner advanced to the
regional final Saturday. That winner
makes the Final Four, which will be
held in Lakeland March 4 and 6.
"We're having fun, laughing at each
other," Holcey said.
Are the players surprised how the
season has transpired? I
"We had an idea that we had a
chance to go this far," Brogdon said.
"It happened for real and it's incredi-
ble."

his best finish a 42nd-place at the Buick Invitational.


.. The chip-and-run shot is one of the
most difficult parts of the game to
master, yet it is the part of our
game that we spend the-least
amount of time working on. This
nonchalant approach to the chip
shot is what separates the cream
of the crop from the remainder of the field. Here
are a few easy steps to practice whenever you
have that difficult chip-and-run shot in front of
you. Narrowing your stance is the first bit of
advice. If you are a right-handed player, put more
weight on your left foot to keep the loft out of your
shot. When you are ready to take the shot, play
the ball inside your right foot with your hands
positioned ahead of the ball. Finally, make a putt-
like motion, keeping your wrists firm and strike
the ball with a clean, crisp stroke.

Woods, whose wife Elin gave birth to the couple's second child, Charlie Axel, .
earlier this month, clinched his 14th major golf title at Torrey Pines last June before
having reconstructive surgery on his left knee. The timing could not be better for the
PGA Tour, which has seen television ratings plunge after the world No.1 player had to miss the
second half of the 2008 season, including two majors, the Ryder Cup anrd the FedExCup play-
offs. "We are delighted that Tiger is returning to competition and look forward to watching him
compete next week," commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement.

Feb. 28,1991 In the first round of the Doral-Ryder
Open, television cameras caught Paul Azinger's
left foot moving some stones as he stood in a water
hazard on the final hole. Azinger, who didn't know
he violated any rules, was disqualified the next day
when a viewer telephoned PGA Tour headquarters
and told them of Azinger's violation. After looking at
the videotape, tour officials DQed Azinger for sign-
ing an incorrect scorecard after he didn't penalize
himself two strokes for violation of Rule 13-4.

Windward SailingSchool award
Windward Sailing School received an
award for "Outstanding School" from the
American Sailing Association for 2008. The
ASA awards the top 20 schools the award each
year. The award is based on surveys sent to
students after completion of a certification of
sailing. Two of Windward's instructors,
Charley Weaver and Tony Jones, also received
awards for "Outstanding Instructor."
Windward Sailing teaches several different
levels of sailing instruction from Basic Sailing
and Coastal Cruising to Coastal and Celestial
Navigation. Upon completion of each level, the
student receives a certification from ASA, in
order to rent sailboats. The courses also build
confidence in sailors who own their own boat
or are contemplating doing so. ASA is recog-
nized internationally and has 300 schools
worldwide.
Windward Sailing also takes passengers for
"fun sails" year-round from the Fernandina
Harbor Marina downtown.
"We sail out into Cumberland Sound, which
.is a great sailing area, with Fort Clinch State
Park and Cumberland Island National
Seashore surrounding the area," said Jones,
owner of Windward Sailing School.
"Sometimes we even see U.S. submarines pass
by. This is the only place I know of in the
world where you can see a U.S. Trident sub-
marine on one side and wild horses on the
other."
Windward Sailing was founded by Charley
Weaver in 1997 and purchased by Tony and
Cindy Jones in 2005. The school has recently
acquired the "Lowe House" at the corner of

Beech and Eighth streets. The house was built
in 1907 by the Bell, brothers, who built other
well-known local Victorian houses, such as the
Pippi Longstocking house and the Beech
Street Grill. The brothers were harbor pilots
and'built houses in their spare time.
"We are thrilled to have captains in the
house once again, this time teaching stu-
dents," Jones said.
In 2006, the school added a captain and
boat in Jacksonville on the Ortega River near
the Jacksonville Landing. ,
"This has helped to, serve the Jacksonville
market better," Jones said. "The sailing is
great on the wide St. Johns River and the
Atlantic is nearby. It's a beautiful area and the
Landing is set up exclusively for boaters with
shops, restaurants and live performances.
"This business is the fulfillment of a life-
time dream and I am grateful to have the
opportunity to share the thrill of sailing with
others. Ifts really great to watch a new sailor's
reaction when they pull a line and the boat
starts to move along.
"Windward Sailing would have not received
the award without the combined team effort
that each of its instructors plays. Windward
Sailing has the greatest staff and we are hon-
ored to work with them. All of them are USCG
licensed and ASA certified."

BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
Flanked by his parents, Albert Jones and Linda Cribb, Domonic Jones signs a national
letter of intent to play football at The Citadel. Also pictured are Fernandina Beach
High School Coach Ed "Puggy" Brown and Jones' mentor, John Landregan.


JONES Continued from 1B
given to him he'll pay back.
He's a great example for young
people.
"I've seen Domonic grow
from a young man to where he
is right now. There are two
sides to it. You look at a quali-
ty person. His athletics, that's
great. He's a fine young man.
He has a great GPA. He's
smart, but he's got that initia-
tive and I think that's what will
make him successful.
"I think he has confidence in
his ability. I always tell him
there's a fine line between con-
fident and cocky. That's a mov-
ing line. I think he recognizes
the fact that he needs a good
education for his future."
Jones is one of 18 athletes
joining the Bulldogs as mem-
bers of the 2009 recruiting
class.
"We are very excited about


the group of athletes that made
commitments to represent The
Citadel as players, students and
members of The Corps," said
Kevin Higgins, head coach at
The Citadel. "The class of 2013
will provide more size,
strength, speed and depth as
we continue to build a champi-
onship program."
This will be Higgins' fourth
season at The Citadel.
"Domonic's class will be his
fourth year," Landregan said.
"All the recruits are his.
Domonic assured him he would
help him win a championship."
Jones' mother, inda Cribb,
is pleased with what the Take
Stock program has done for her
son.
"It's been an honor having
Mr. Landregan taking Domonic
under his wings and leading
him in the right direction," she
said.
"He taught me more than I


influenced him," Landregan
said.
Jones also competes in track
(high jump, long jump, triple
jump and hurdles) and made it
to the regional meet in the triple
jump last season.
Jones turned down another
offer.
. "This is the one I chose,"
Cribb said. "He respected my
wishes, but we left the choice
.up to him."
"I'm excited for him," Brown
said. "I think this is a good deci-
sion to help him develop and
grow. It's going to give him the
opportunity to go and play right
away.
"He's been a tremendous
asset to our program the last
three years and we're just
happy to see anyone go to the
next level and contribute and
get his education. I think he's a
fine young man and I'm proud
of him."

A relaxing getaway just five minutes from home


T he Big Guy and I decided
to "make some memories"
just as our tourism devel-
opment folks urge us to do.
The newly reorganized Amelia
Island Convention and Visitors
Bureau is aiming at a broader audi-
ence and folks who probably don't
know about Amelia Island's many
best kept secrets. We want to do our
part, so we planned a mini-escape
close to home.
Our spontaneous trip ended up an
unexpected treat. Truly serendipi-
tous. We did not have to drive to the
airport, park our car, check luggage,
go through security, secure our seat
belts, hope the plane took off on
time, worry about the weather,
arrive at airport B, pray our luggage
made it or wonder if our destination
would meet our expectations.
Our mini-vacation could not have
been easier. We were on the road
exactly five minutes. Our destina-


tion? Elizabeth
Pointe Lodge, the
grand dame of
Amelia Island's bed
and breakfast inns.
An island land-
mark, the popular
25-room bed and
breakfast has the
look of an 1890's
Nantucket shingle-
style cottage. Most
people assume it is
old, but it has every
modern conven-
ience. Big Guy and
old bathrooms are
not a good combi-
nation.


FROM
THE
PORCH

Dickie
Anderson


We promised ourselves a one-
night getaway. When we would run
into Susan and Dave Caples, proud
innkeepers, we would once again
pledge to spend at least one night at
their bed and breakfast.


Yes, there are lots of wonderful
B&Bs on the island but we wanted
beach, not history, this time around.
The Caples have found success in
the hospitality business owning sev-
eral properties along the beach. In
1980 they purchased the Baker
house, a home and inn built in the
1920s by Noland Baker. They named
their first inn the 1735 House. 1735
was an important year in Amelia
Island's history. It was the year that
James Edward Oglethorpe named
the island after King George's
youngest daughter, Amelia.
The 1735 House was the first
lodging of its kind on the island and
was busy from its earliest days. As
their young family grew, the Caples
moved into Katie's Light, a home
they built down the beach from the
1735 House. They named the house
for their first-born daughter,
Katherine.
The Caples purchased additional


property and built Elizabeth Pointe
Lodge, naming it after their second
daughter, Elizabeth. Not content to
just run their successful lodging
business, the couple soon found
themselves helping others open bed
and breakfasts. Many of the inns cur-
rently operating in the historic dis-
trict resulted or were influenced by
the talented couple.
So on a sunny February after-
noon we presented ourselves at the
front desk. Friendly faces greeted
us. The lobby, with its fireplace,
packed bookshelves, a pitcheftof
lemonade and plate of cookies gave
us a sense of cozy from the momefit
of our arrival.
Susan Caples led the way. We
rode the elevator to the fourth floor
and walked to the end of the hall.
She unlocked the door to the ocean-
front room and quickly showed us
how to open the windows, letting in
the fresh ocean air and the soft


music of the water gently slapping
the beach.
We were not in the room long. We
headed down to the beach and
walked along the shore in the late
afternoon sun. Children played, in the
surf. Dogs romped. Surfers chased
the perfect wave. We settled into the
lounge chairs in front of Elizabeth
Pointe and wondered at how it could
be that we were only minutes from
home but feel like we were a million
miles away.
With local businesses needing us
even more than ever, consider your
own."staycation." Sometimes memo-
ries can be made right in your own
backyard!

Homage to old masters
One of the best learning tools for an artist is to study and emulate the old masters
of art. The Nouveau Art show, "From the School of," that opened this month at the
Island Art Association gallery shows the influence of that learning. The artists were.
challenged to create a new work in the style of one of the masters. The responses
were varied and often unique.
The show was judged by renowned water colorist Judy Wagner. Best of Show went
to Judith Morgan, above left, and first place went to Jayne Gaskins, above right. The
show runs through March at 18 N. Second St., Fernandina Beach. Call 261-7020.

Well-balanced can be the goal for every pet


ANIMAL SERVICES


I meet dozens of dogs and
dog owners every week. I've
begun to notice a trend that
concerns me. Many of the pet
owners that come in to talk to
me about grooming or train-
ing have rescued their dogs.
That's not the alarming trend.
That is wonderful and I am
overjoyed to see how many
people go out of their way to
adopt a homeless dog.
No, the trend that causes
me concern is how invested
these owners are in their
pet's rescued past. Many pet
owners seem to be dwell
heavily on how traumatic
their pet's past may have
been and now, seem to take
satisfaction in being over pro-
tective of their dog. This
takes the form of explaining
why their pet can't be sepa-
rated from them, can't be
placed in a cage, can't walk
on a leash, can't go outside,
can't be around other dogs,
men, children, the list goes
on and on.
Now I could spend the
entire column examining why
we as humans would want to
humanize our dogs to the
point of creating dysfunction-
al and unhealthy pets.
However, my focus is on the
disservice this does to these
dogs. Given the chance, dogs
are happiest if allowed to be
dogs.
Once I have convinced a
pet owner to give their dog
over to my care for a few
hours, I find their "issues"
vanish, or at l ast are mini-
mized. Suddenly, I have a dog
that is content to nap in his
cage or watch the other dogs
quietly. He isn't reliving some'

past trauma
while in
there. He
isn't afraid
of the out-
Sdoors, in
BL-- fact he is
curious,
looking all
around and
THE sniffing like
HAPPY crazy. He
PET isn't terri-
fied of men.
In fact, after
Laurie some quiet
Buckley time togeth-
er, he will
take a treat from a man. And
best of all, he can be separat-
ed from his mom or dad for a
few hours. He actually bonds
with other humans during
that time. The difference is
that I treat, and expect them
to behave like d "normal"
dog, and consistently, they
rise to the occasion.
Often pet owners are rein-
forcing a dog's fearful behav-
iors unintentionally or, with
the best of intentions. But
imagine adopting a child
from an abusive past. Would
you not try to teach that child
to overcome that past, to
become confident, independ-
ent and able to function in the
world? And you certainly
wouldn't confuse that child
more by treating, and expect-
ing them to act, like a dog.
That is what I believe we are
doing when we focus our
energy on the hurts of ur
dog's past. Rather than shel-
ter them from situations that'
may cause them anxiety, we
should be working with them
in a constructive way to over-


come those fears. And the
best way to do that is to treat
dogs like dogs.
This point was brought
home to me further when I
recently visited the new dog
park at the Nassau Humane
Society. To see dogs running
around and playing together
did my heart good. It gives
them a chance to be dogs. It
made me sad to think of the
pet owners that are too fear-
ful themselves to let their
dogs be a part of something
like that. And I would bet
money that, given some basic
training, exercise, a consis-
tent routine and socialization
.opportunities like the dog
park, most rescued dogs can
overcome 90 percent of their
"issues," Dogs, when treated
like dogs, are not that compli-
cated. It's a pretty simple for-
mula.
I am sympathetic to the
trauma that many of these
dogs have experienced. After
working for almost 10 years
in animal shelters, I can attest
to the abuse and neglect they
may have suffered. I just
don't think it serves them
well to focus on it. My mom's
dog Missy is a perfect exam-
ple. She was adopted from a
, shelter where I worked. She
was extremely .fearful of
eVerything. We knew very lit-
tle of her history, except that
she had had puppies and may
have been found running
loose. I convinced my parents
to adopt her, figuring nobody
else was going to adopt a
fearful Chow-look-a-like. At
first, she hid all the time,
cowered around people, espe-
cially men, and had a hunted


look about her. When we
introduced her to people, we
found ourselves creating an
elaborate past for her and
generally making excuses for
her fearful and sometimes
aggressive behavior. This
came to a head when she
began to growl at my dad
whenever he approached my
mom. We realized that
regardless of what she had
been through, we had to help
her to move past it.
We began regular obedi-
ence training and socialized
and exercised her daily. We
also verbally corrected her
when she showed aggres-
sion. Today, she is a changed
dog. She is happy and friend-
ly, even towards men. If we
had continued our original
path with her, it is entirely
possible that she would have
become more aggressive.
She might have been
returned to the shelter. And
she certainly would have
been a nightmare for any vet,
groomer or pet sitter that
made her acquaintance. It
wasn't easy to give her this
"tough love." But I think it
made her a well-balanced
dog, and may have saved her
life.
